In eleven northern States Fremont's major ity over Buchanan is 267,411. It is tho't that Buchanan's majority in all the south em States, and four of the northern States, will not exceed 135,000.

Whatever may be the current of politics, CoL Fremont has, in the recent contest, gained laurels which no mere victory could have given. He has proved himself pos sessed of the most eminent qualities of a man and hero, j; Maligned by the most malicious "lies, he has not stooped to an swer them. Assailed in the persons of his mother, wife and children, in terms which are only .applicable to the vile and criminal, he has borne it'like a martyr, and reviled not again. Amidst a storm of fierce as saults he has remained calm, nor once de parted, -from Jha-,4iguity of -his - position and the deportment of a gentleman. The passage of the Rocky Mountains amidst the snow of winter, proved him capable of courage in danger and of fortitude in suf fering, but his passage through the Pres idential election proves him that rare char acter a moral hero. While a shame, which can never be washed out, adheres to his assailants, he emerges from the con flict wiser in conduct, brighter in renown. ... We were not in favorof Fremont's nom nalion, but if it appeared an error then the event has proved it right. Nobly has he sustained the cause committed to his trust, which has been sullied by no act of his, but is now stronger and brighter than ever. It is now certain that no other man could have aroused the same amount of popular sympathy, and to him has been paid the highest compliment ever bestowed by this nation on one of his age. -At forty-five only, while yet young, he has bare ly escaped an election to the. Presidency. For him it is glory enough. , ,. ;. . ; The Biters Bitten. The. Wayne county (Pa.) Democrat says that at the meeting of the Return Judges of that county, after the Presidential elec tion, the democrats undrtook to cipher out majority for Buchanan. To do this they excepted to the returns from three repub lican townships, on the ground of in formality. ' A rule was established to make . the lack of particularity in the re turns from these townships fatal to then reception.1' The returns were excluded. Afterwards it was discovered that the re turns from three other townships were de fective in the same way, and they had to be excluded likewise, - The result was that the. Democrats lost in the operation. The allowed majority for the fusion ticket was greater than the actual majority. . The ac tual fusion majority, allowing all the re turns to stand, is 4. - Excluding the re-, turns from the six "townships, it is 100. So much the democrats got by trying to cheat. . They defrauded all: the .electors of six townships out of their votes, in order to swell up a respectable Buchanan major ity, and all they accomplished was an in crease of the fusion majority. .. There is such thing as being altogether too sharp. : Election Frauds. The Louisville Journal says that a pa per is circulating in Kentucky for signa tures, calling on the Governor to convene an extra session of the legislature, for the purpose of considering the frauds practised at the late elections and taking some meas ures to prevent a repetition of them. The Journal does not say what was the extent of the fraudulent voting in that State; but it hiuts very strongly that the heavy ma jorities in the. river counties of Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois were swelled by vo ters who had no right to vote in either, but who exercised the privilege of voting in the two that happened to be most conve nient. ' " ; - . " There can be no doubt, we think, that an immense amount of fraudulent voting was thus done on the borders of States contiguous to each other. In all proba bility, Illinois has been carried for Buch anan by votes smuggled over the border from Kentucky and Missouri, and it is not at all improbable that Kentucky was car ried in the manner suggested by the Journal- . " : : r In Pennsylvania the amount of illegal voting was unnecessarily large, the demo cracy having overrated their necessities.: .' Census of Nebraska. This , young Territory is going ahead finely. ;f The cen sus just taken shows a population of 10,- 716, and 4,000 voters. : The - population has increased over two and one-fourth fold in a single year, and the number of voters nearly three times greater than in 1 855.

Bvthe law of 1782, the Presidential electors are to meet at the State capitals on the first Wednesday of December, (Dec ' 3,) give in their votes for President and ! Vice President, make three certified lists ; thereof, transmit one by a special messen ger to the President of the Senate at Wash ington, another by mail, and deposit the third with the Judge of the District Court. The first two are to bo sent to Washington by the first eduesday in January. On the second Wednesday of February (Feb. 11,1 the votes are to be counted by the President of the Scuate, in presence of both branches of Congress. On the 4th March the new Jf residential term begins. On that day also the terms of the present House of Representatives ex pire, and those of the new House begin.

Mr. Caskets A little over one year ago, it was the privilege of the people of this county to select a Prosecuting Attor ney, to stand guard over the State's rights in the county, It was then asserted that if the present incumbent of that ofnee should be successful, that it would be the last of the prosecutions against Shrock. His friends assured the people that he was an enemy to Gilbert, and an enemy to crime generallv. and that if elected he would ferret out the whole transaction of the plundering of the county. " How has this turned out ! . On the 1 2th of November, Shrock' a time expired in the Penitentiary, and there is now pending somehaIf-dozen or more indictments against him. Why is it that the Prosecutor has all at once become so lame, and so forget ful of the pledges made by him and his friends i , Does he know that it is his duty to have these indictments disposed of by an arrest and trial f " What influence has wrought upon him siuce his election to cause him to slumber upon the rights of the people! Let him emerge from his hiding place, and tell us where Shrock is, and why he has not redeemed the phged virtue of the party to which he belongs, that crime should receive no countenance at his hands. Is it be cause he is fearful of incurring costs upon the county, that this plunderer is to go unwhipt of justice ? If so, all a man will have to do, to protect him in crime, is to commit greater ones, and the people will suffer them rather than in cur the costs of a prosecution. . . -1 . : , PRAIRIE. Oyster Trade. The oyster trade, of Baltimore is of less than twenty years' growth, and now there are upwards of three hundred vessels em ployed in' the business, which bring week ly to the city over 100,000 bushels, the larger portion of which, the American says, arc shipped to .the West w ithin twenty tour Hours of their arrival. A single es tablishment in Baltimore shucks, packs, and ships 4000 bushels per day, or more than 1,000,000 bushels per year, excludm; the three months in which the law prohibits their being brought to the city. At the same time upwards of 400,000 bushels of lime are burned. .. There are a large num-i ber of establishment engaged in the vari ous modes of preserving the bivalves for transportation, and the whole trade far ex ceeds $2,000,000 per year. .

' ' ; "' The Wicked Gnash their Teeth. 1 following Washington Union, organ of the Pierce and -Buchanan Administrations: - '-.- ! Priest Ridden New England. The result of the Presidential election in. New England proves that a majority of her" peo ple have bowed their necks to the domin ion of religious fanaticism. While their hearts are bleeding over the condition of slavery in which the negroes at the South are placed, they seem to be wholly uncon scious that they are the victims of a far worse servility themselves.' They are the slaves of passion, of prejudice, of religious tyranny ; and yet they hug their own chains of absolute subjection to puritanical fanati cism, and think they are doing God sen-ice in shedding tears over the servility of south ern slaves, who neither desire or need their sympathies. ; New England to-day is groaning under a despotism which challen ges a parallel in any other part of the world. They labor under the delu sion that they are free men, and they boast loudly of their devotion to freedom. But there is no freedom in New England. The church is supreme over the minds of the priest-ridden people." Ihey do not think for themselves, but the political ora cles of the pulpit do their thinking. The worst species of despotism is that in which the mind is enslaved. That is the despot ism which broods over New England. The slave of the South is happy and contented with his condition. He knows that he was not fitted by nature for freedom, and he is contented with the guardian protection which he enjoys from humane and kind masters. The New England men are de luded with the idea that they are free, and yet they are wearing the chains of en slaved intellectual beings. They look to their religious teachers for their thoughts, and they follow the dictates of bigotry and fanaticism with slavish submission. They accept whatever falsehood, whether of doc trine or of fact, that their religious guides choose to impose upon them. Church and State are virtually one in New England. -The power of the pulpit is supreme, and it has just been exerted in dictating the vote cast for Fremont."' '- ; Price of Wool. There has been, a steady rise in the price of wool ever since May, with no prospect of a decline. This should induce farmers to take good care of their sheep during the winter, -.-The wools of Jefferson and Harrison are .now selling at home for from 55 to 60 cents a pound, and the fine wools of Washington county, Pennsylvania, are held at 65 cents, liood- ale & Co., Cleveland, have furnished us with the following: "The wool market presents an upward tendency; our- sales amount to over 200,000 lbs." within the last three days, at an advance over former prices, j We are anticipating still further advance between this and February, owing to the short supplv on the market, but not owing to any ability of the manufacturers to pay higner prices, ior it is eviut-in. um wools bear ranch higher rates in propor tion, than woolen goods."-!-OAio Farmer.

" I What Democratic Victories are Made of in Illinois. Everybody has been astonished at the vote Illinois' "Egypt?' gives for Buchanan. When the tremendous majorities given for Frement by the intelligent citizens of the northern counties were reported, the State was given up,' - even by the Democratic press, as having gone for Fremont and free dom. But, lo I the Southern counties went almost solid, many of them, for Buchanan ; and to the amazement of all, the State is carried by the Buchaneers Now we pro pose to throw a little light upon the sub ject. We submit the following table as giving ,an obvious explanation. .. ' is NUMBER OF ADULT PERSONS WHO CANNOT READ NOR WRITE. !Ktir Foreign.

Of these, Jackson gave 1,1 75 Dem. ma jority; Union, 1,400; Williamson, 1,200. Sangammon gives Buck 1,200 majority, and there are in the county 2,024 adults who can neither read nor write. ; Winnebago county gives Fremont 3, 200 majority, and only nine who cannot read and write. In SaDgamruan, William son, Hamilton and Johnson, the aggregate population is 14,505, and 4,922 of the number cannot read or write, being one third of the whole!! ,.,. . We find on examination that the first seven Fremont counties we come to on the Reserve, stand as follows: . ADULT POPULATION WHO CANNOT READ OR WRITE. Ashtabula" ' ''.''

Of the 736 ignoramuses in Cuyahoga, 561 are foreigners, nearly every man of whom voted for Buchanan. In the New England States, in New York, in Northern Ohio, Indiana and Illi nois in short, wherever the people are in telligent and educated where schools, col leges and newspapers are found, there you find the people voting the Republican tick el; but where ignorance fosters a mere an imal existence where schools are almost unknown, and the people are degraded where election day is a whisky saturnalia there you find the : pro-slavery Demo cracy triumphant. ' ' ' It is stated that the democratic majority in the 9th district of Illinois is actually larger than the entire legal vote of the whole district in 1854! ' Where there is ignorance, there will be corruption. There is no doubt that if the fraudulent votes returned from Egypt could be got at, the expose would be astound- ing. ; ' " "J At the Democratic convention last spring, a leading' Douglasite remarked in a boast ing manner": "Just let us know what ma jority 'Egypt must give to elect the Demo cratic ticket; and il shall be forthcoming." That fellow knew his arty well. The N. T. Tribune says that in that ci ty, the thieves, gamblers, brothel keepers and rum-sullers almost to a man, went for Buchanan, and quotes in corroboration, the votes of the notorious "Five Points," which stood 574 for Buchanan 25 for all oth ers!

All we have to' do is to educate the masses scatter light through the agency of common schools and the free press, and the entire North is with us. Light and truth go hand in hand oppression and darl.ness are ' inseparable. Steadily and ceaselessly the waves of enlightment are breaking brightly against the crumbling bulwarks of ignorance. . These dark spots will ere long be inundated with the glori ous tide and the last vestige of pro-slavery Democracy will be swept into oblivion. Clevelnnd Leader. The Allies of Buchanan. Although all our readers are fully and firmly con vinced of the fact that the Fillmore and Buchanan men were allies in the late fight Bishop. Hughes leading one wing of the ar my and the K. N. Fillmoreites the other we yet wish to put on record the admis sion of the parties themselves to that end. The following from the Louisville Journal is just the point:' - "Although unsuccessful in the election of its candidate, the American party de serves the gratitude of the country for what it has done in the recent contest. The supporters of Buchanan may rejoice over their success. ' They may shout loud ly over their victory, but the fact is plain that, if the contest had been single handed between Fremont and Buchanan, Fremont would without doubt have been elected. Fremont has been defeated and the Dem ocracy owe their success to the fact that the Fillmore party was in the field. To its ef forts the country is indebted for the defeat of the Northern sectional party." r 3T We understand that Mr. J. Elwell and family, who left this place for the west some time since, were aboard the propeller Toledo, and of course all found a watery grave, xno tamny consisted 01 miner, mother, two sons and one daughter. The sons were both married men, haying left their wives here to return for them as soon as they found a location in the West, We get our information from a friend of the family. The news is heart-rending to their friends remaining here. Paineiville Advertiser. 11 tn. Hon. Charles Sumner.

From Kansas. The Herald of Freedom contains many items of interest touching the condition of things in Kansas, and we commend the excellent journal . W general patronage. Some 13000 have bees contributed to help re-establish it, principally obtained by the efforts of Mrs. Brown while her husband was imprisoned as a traitor. Further aid needed, and Mrs. Brown intends to spend the winter in the Western States, and will call upon the friends of Freedom for sub scriptions, t The Herald says:? '? --"We- trust she will be received every where as the representative of this office.-" To Mrs. B.'s energy the public are indebt ed for the re-appearance of the , Herald of freedom at this tune. .Lntu quiet is re stored in Kansas, on her. will devolve most of our duties in the States, as we have no desire to run the gauntlet of the Missouri river again. Mrs. Brown pledges herself to step into the breach, and continue the publication of our journal, should violence befall us which should incapacitate us from pursuing our duties." : - The Ueruld thus speaks of the donation of Cleveland's enterprising and liberal pa per manufacturers : :. --." "Younglove & Hoyi, paper manufactu rers, of Clevc!and.Ohio, gave us $125 in printing paper; jt being the same on which this number of the Herald is issued. The friends of the cause in the States should extend to theso manufacturers their pat ronage, for this generous donation." Mr.. Brown, proprietor of the Herald of Freedom, has erected a monument to the Border Ruffians in front of his office. The heavy iron frame of the presses destroyed are placed on blocks of the imposing stone, which was New England granite. One side of the press is inscribed "Destroyed by Border Ruffians, May 21st, 1856.". The ladies of Lawrence have presented Mr. Brown with a beautiful flag, in appro bation of his conduct as an editor, and as fitting momenta of the times. It waves from the office of the Herald, ia place' of tho bloody lone star planted there by the Border Ruffians in May. The Herald states t hat trade has entire ly stopped between Kansas City, Mo., and the Free State settlers in Kansas, and ad vises all to avoid Westport and Kansas City Business men ship their freight to Leavenworth City, and traders pass on to that point, avoiding Kansas City and West port as though infested with the plague. The mail arrangements between Lawrence and St Louis are now quite regular. - The Herald expresses gratification that CoL Sumner is on his way to Kansas to take charge of his command. He will su percede Col. Cook. Col. Sumner has been East since early iu July on leave of absence. - - .. An office is to be opened in Lawrence to give information concerning claims to emigrants on their first arrival, and to fur nish agents to go with them to select a lo cation. ' '' Mechanics of all kinds are needed in Kan sas. ' There is a large and increasing pop ulation of agriculturists scattering over the Territory, and a'good supply of profession al men and merchants.-. The' Herald states that people sleep on pole bedsteads, or on the floor, or on the ground. Any mechan ical business started will be found almost without opposition. Josiah Miller, one of the editors of the Kansas Free State, a 'journal mobbed to death by the Border Ruffians, and who was himself arrested by a gang of South Caro lina outlaws in May last, tried before Stringfellow's mock court, and finally re leased after his proving that he was not an abolitionist, has returned to Lawrence from Iowa. CoL Delahay, editor of tho Free State paper at Topeka destroyed by a mob, at Alton, 111 with his family, and de signs returning to Kansas as soon as the state of the Territory will justify his doing so. ' . The Herald of the 8 th has intelligence that several cases of outrage have recently occurred in the southern part of Kansas. Bodies' of armed men from Missouri follow ed upon the wheels of Gov. Geary and his troops, and committed various depredations on the Free State -settlers. A party of twenty-two persons from. Wesconsin, search ing forclaimes in the vicinity of Ossawato mie, were beset two nights in .succession by bodies of armed men, The attacking party was repelled. No lives lost. Mr. J. W. H. Golden, who" recently left the hospital in Lawrence, for the East, be came alarmed for his safety in consequence of tho threats of the border ruffians oh board the steamer Omaha, and while delir ious jumped overboard and was lost. The ZZerai of the 8 th, ' relates another base murder, and calls upon Gov. Geary to in quire into the facts, and punish the gang of outlaws. It says : "A Free State Settler residing on the Ottowa Creek, on Saturday hist, while traveling on the high-way towards West port Mo., for provisions, was beset near Roger's residence, at tho head of Bull Creekj was robbed, then shot and left for dead. The ball entered the back, at the side of the spinal column, and passed through the body a little below the heart. He was found a few days after by a party of teamsters, and was taken to Westport, There is no probability that he is now liv ing. The assassins are said to be a "party of Georgians who are encamped in the vi cinity, and who are attempting to carry out their threats of extermination against tne tree State bettlers. It is reported that Gov. Geary is exerci sing his subduing powers by disbanding a company of Free State men organized un der his instructions at Sugar Mound, and that he has left the inhabitants of that vi cinity in a very unprotected situation from the incursions of the Border Ruffians. The Herald instances as specimens of the grit of Free State men, that substantial stone buildings are going up in place of the dwellings of Judge MakeneKI, Mr. Heath, Capt. Walker, ..nd others, burned by Stringfellow and his followers, in Sept. last. The Emigraut Aid Society has con tracted for the construction of the base ment of their spacious hotel in Lawrence this fall. The new hotel will be 55 by 70 the ground and four stories high,, inclu ding the bailment.' It is to be completed early as possible in tho spring.

In those scenes of confusion, flight, hor ror, and agony, which took place on the Atlantic steamer Arctic, which struck an other steamer and sunk in four hours, car rying down three hundred persons, there is act, between the time of her accident her sinking, which looms up with a mournful grandeur never to be forgotten ; fireing of the signal gun. This duty belonged to Stewart Holland, a young man the engineering department, who, when his comrades deserted the ship, faced the danger and stood at his post. About two hours after the Arctic was struck tho firing of the gun attracted my attention," says the third mate, "and I re collect when I saw Stewart, it struck me remarkably strange that he alone, of all belonging to the engineering body, should there. . He must have had a good chance to get in the chief engineer s boat, be 6aved ; but he did not, it seems, the slightest exertion to save himself, there was duty to be done on ship board. I recollect that, about an hour be the ship sunk, I was hurriedly looking spikes with which to make a raft. 1 just passed through the saloon: on the were men who had fainted, and were many o them, too: the ladies in little groups, clasped together. quiet und resigned.

Having heard of the w ild speculations in contemplation of the coming Pork season, cannot refrain from offering to the Pork dealers a communication which.1 hope may prove of some advantage to them asr well to the bankers who may loan money for purchase of Pork. It is a known fact that the price of Pork, to a great degree, makes the quantity. High'priceswill at all times bring out more hogs than low prices, from the fact that if a farmer can obtain his hogs 66 to $7. he will sell all he spare and keep as h'ttle as possible for supplies, and eat a Lirger quantity of vege tables, bread, chickens, &c But If hogs f 4 to $5 , he will retain for family use good supply for bacon, to be consumed his family, workmen, tc- This fact has been clearly shown within the last' two years. In 1854-'55 prices ranged from to 4f, and the consequence was, "short stock," and the Pork dealers all became ; some said this was caused by a failure of corn crop. I will admit that to a cer tain degree it was, as there certainly was very little old corn, and a failure in the new crop, which caused com to be high priced; if the price of hogs had ruled high enough to justify farmers to feed, we would have had many more hogs; but as it was, price of com very high, and the price of hogs very low, farmers sold their corn and hogs on mast. In 1854-'55 there was cry of "short stock,? because people sup posed that on account of scarcity of old corn, farmers had sold their crops at good prices, and discontinued the raising of hogs, consequently packers ran hogs up in No vember to $7; they afterwards found them selves mistaken; hogs poured in and found market, and a panic took prices down $5. . Confidence was agsis cstablisedV prices again advanced to $6,50, hogs meats again poured in, and the conse quence was an increase and ruinous de cline; the increase, however, was not gen erally believed in, and prices again advan ced, and ranged high throughout the spring and summer, and the consequence is that Price Currents is now known to have reported correctly that the country is now of meats,- with no prospect of demand : demand has almost entirely ceased for past two months, as it always will be when prices are very high and stock good. Pork and Lard are the Only articles which 8re now doing any good for the pack er, and those articles must materially de the-coming month, as there is large increase over last year, with com paratively no demand, also with an expect ed arrival from New York of 8,000 bbls pork, which was undoubtedly ship ped from France to New York, to be re sold, having been purchased for war sup plies. Last year at this time, there was (to the knowledge of the writer,) a pound of meat in Louisville, St. Louis, Cincinnati, or any of the packing points in West, and not sufficient East and South to. supply actual consumption, ' and large English and French contracts meats deliverable in November and De cember. Now, if we had panics with all these favorable circumstances, what are we likely to have with high prices in 1856-7, commencing with large over supply of meats ! No demand and no prospect of demand from England or France, and a full supply of meat South, and a over stock in the East, and with a supply of old com, and a reasonable of new, and one of the best mast years known. It is very evident that he has the smallest stock of meats from to 6 hogs during the coming year will make the most money. I might add that wheat crop should be taken into con sideration, as when wheat is in full supply, flour low, meats must be proportionate ly low, if in full supply; if otherwise, the demand to a certain extent will cease. is too great a producing country to. justify 6 hogs, and I doubt whether would have justified 16, as the would have started high, and the de mand would have been so good, particular ly so if we had plenty of wheat. And an other point is that some parts of the South getting tired of paying such enormous bills, and are beeoming producers. - At this time last year, there was no lard consequence iu this or any other market, to-day there is in this city alone, nearly thousand barrels in the hands of butch ers and manufacturers, and the butchers others making more than can be con sumed before the first of December, and prospecU of an early sessions, which to me makes it look as though we must have a decline in lard equal, if not greater, than year. But in the face of then facts, poorly posted manufacturers are now pay ing 10 to 11 cento for November and De cember deliveries; and also at this time hat beef was in good demand and- scarce. it is over-abundant, with prospect an exceedingly good stock to be slaugh tered this (all, which will act greatly to the disadvantage of high priced pork.
