The utter demolition of the Democratic party by the election of Mr. Li'dcoId, bas saved this country from a bitter sectional strife, that would have shattered the Union from centre to circumference. The Democracy, so for as its leaders are concerned, is composed of equal parts, Dis- snionUls and "Commercial" politicians. The Southern Democracy is under the con trol of traitors. The Northern Democracy is governed by men who make politics a trade. Over these, combined in detail, the Republican party that is the people has triumphed, and with the scattered, torn and flying Democracy goes Disunion, Sec tionalism, and perhaps civil war. . The annals of politics afford no parallel to this triumph of right over wrong. The North, abused, villified, slandered, has kept within the constitution, returned good for evil, has laid down a conservative, national platform, put in nomination a national man, and, regardless of the jeers and falsehoods heaped on its head, has ut tered not a sectional sentiment, made not threat, bnt marched right on to victory the victory of the Union. New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Indiana, Connecticut, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Maine, Iowa, have given their votes for Lincoln and Hamlin. We hope New Jersey may be added to the list, and thus make a clear sweep of the Free States East of the Rocky Mountains. ' This voice has unmistakable echoes from the Slave States. St, Louis gives a majority for Lincoln. Wilmington, the capitol of Delaware, gives a majority for Lincoln. Baltimore gives nearly as many votes for Lincoln as it does for Douglas- Wheeling gives as many votes, into twen ty-six, for Lincoln as it does for Douglas and all through the Northern Slave Stales are scattered Republican votes. The victory is complete. Let our tri umph be marked by magnanimity, and a spirit of generosity that shall make even the bitterest Southern enemies of Republi canism respect its honesty, its patriotism, its devotion to our common country. STThe gallant Republicans of Wayne came within about 40 votes of carrying the county, last Tuesday. Stark County gives Lincoln over 1000 majority. Hamilton county gives 750 Republican majority. The vote in Ohio for Breckenridge, will probable not exceed 10,000. St. Louis Lincoln 8962, Douglas 8177, Bell 4192. Scattering returns from the interior in dicate that Douglas has carried that State. Louisville Bell and Douglas men give Kentucky to Bell by 10,000 to 15,000 maj. Returns too limited to form any re liable estimate. Louisville City Bell 3,823, Douglas 2.638, Breck. 859, Lincoln about 100. Private dispatches say Louisiana has gone for Breck. Returns from Southern points below Tennessee, show Douglas1 vote quite feeble. States South of Ten nessee line, all gone for Breck. Philadelphia, city and co. gives Lincoln majority of 8073 over all the oppsition. Westmoreland co Lincoln will have 2000 maj. Alleghany co. 10,000 Majorities. 'As near as we could tell when going to pressj Lincoln's majority w ill be about as follows: Pennsylvania, 75 to 100,000 Ohio, 40,000 new i org, oJ,vw Indiana, 2d,000 Illinois, 15.000 Michigan, . 20,000 Wisconsin, 15,000 Vermont, 25 to 30,000 All the New England States nearly unanimous for Lincoln. MEaffy Making. The boys had a good time of it for a few hours last night, (Wednesday) after the 10 o'clock train' ar rived. They had a bonfire on the Square, good music and sent up cheer upon cheer for old Abe. ' Occasionally they hollered for "de Dougalass," out , of sympathy, a be needed tbem most. Holmes County. 890 majority for Douglas, and the "back townships" etill voting. . . . The vote polled was as follows: i . Douglas, 2181. Lincoln, 1391. ; ; Breckenridge, i- 49. Bell, " ' 8. Douglas over Lincoln, 890. X"The entire block upon which the Neil House, at Columbus, stands, was de stroyed by fire, on Wednesday night. The Grand Result. Breckinridge has probably carried the cotton States, Bkll the Cenlra!raed Lin coln the Northern States. -! But with old New England, New York, Pennsylvania and the Western States, Lincoln is elected by the people and so" far as the Presidency is concerned it matters bow bow the bal ance of the Union bas gone Douglas, while he will receive double the popular vote of both Bell and Bbkckkkridos and nearly if not quite as many votes as Lin coln, may not carry a single State, although Missouri and California are con ceded to him. This shows that was the President elected by the direct vote of the people-a very different result might be ob tained from that produced by the interven tion of the Electoral colleges as is now the law. Cleaeland Plaindealer, Nov. 6. Who is the Sectional Candidate? Lincoln has 1082 votes in Baltimore, and Douglas has only 1 ,562 in the same city. Lincoln has three hundred majority in Wil mington, Delaware. The fiTth Legislative District in Delaware gives 1 plurality for Lincoln, and the Republi can candidate for Conbcess ia the same District has 43 majority. St. Louis, in Missouri, give Lincoln 815 ma jority over Douglas. " Wheeling, Virginia, gives Lincoln COO votes, and Douglas only 527. Now, hurrah for Douglas the Katumal candi date, and groan for Lincoln the Bedimed candi date over the left. Wide Awakes. The Millersharg Wide Awakes are requested to meet Monday Evening next. Wide Awakes from surrounding towns are invited to meet wilS them, as 'tis proposed to have a little jollifica tion over the election of Old Abe. Republican friends from far and near, are also invited to be present and participate. 5JDrop in and see Matebs' Sev Goods. He selects with good taste,, understands buying cheap, and sells cheap also. g"Coo says if you want a Watch or a Breast Pin, that his establishment is the place to buy it. See his new Advertisement, f"Now that the election is over, we intend to devote our colums to a line of reading mat ter more welcome to the Ladies and perhaps to all classes of our readers. fff Dont overlook the claims of friend Srix- ceb when yon want an "awl" driven into your "sole." See his Advertisement. ty Everlt, Eckel, A Co., of Nashville, are up to their eyes in business, and if they hada't such a tremendous run for their goods, they'd be up to their eyes in them, also. But though they are now opening the second lot of Goods re ceived this fall, they are sanguine they will have to buy again before cold weather sets in. This all results from good business management, having good-looking wives, and Advertising in the Republican. J3fJtn.vA.tK says he is astonished at the quantity of goods he has sold this tail. He at tributes his success to three causes, their good ness, their cheapness, and having the handsom est salesmen in town. Well, Jenks is a "trump'' from whom we never wait for the second invi tation to take the oysters. Sad. Our notice of the Democratic Chicken presentation in Mechanic township, a few weeks since, offended about the only democratic sub criber we had left outside the borough limits, and he, ordered hit paper discontinued. This it a bad business, true enough. If the paper sur vives, it will be by hard rubbing, and punctual payment by what subscribers we have left. JfThe letter from Iowa, published in an other column, is from a valued friend, and should have appeared months since, but was mislaid and not found until a week or two ago. We hope this apology for its not appearing earlier will be satisfactory to the writer, and that our readers will hear from him frequently through the colums of the Republican. Whilst our hand is in apologizing to Corres pondents for our neglect of their favors, we wish to say, that long since we received and published a letter from another old and valued friend in Iowa, and formerly a citizen of llil lersburg, which was followed soon after by a second letter, but this one was mislaid and has sever come to hand. He will favor our readers and a host of warm friends, by letting them hear from him occasionally. , If he will do so, we will promise to be more careful of his favors hereafter. We have a drawer full of home favors, which in the press of politics we bad to lay aside, but some of which may appear hereafter. Which is Meaxest? In South Carolina the rich political scoundrels have pens built near the place of voting, and into these the poor white men are driven, and from thence are driv en to the polls. In Holmes county the poor white men or poor white devils, have a marked ticket placed into their hands, and then they are dogged t the polls by a mean, sneaking set of scoundrels, to see whether he votes it or not, We think the man- who fears to vote his senti ments, a poor sort of a man, and he who would endeavor to prevent, by threats, with the nse of whisky, or in .any other, way his doing so, a worse scoundrel than Hull or Arnold. It is a mean business, and no nan but a very mean one will engage in it. . It was tried here last Tuesday, and we envy not the party who will stoop to such means to get votes, all they made by it. We do not believe that there are half dozen democrats in the town of Millersburg that ap prove of this practice of marking ticket, in or der to compel men to vote contrary to their in clinations. It was tried here ia 1844 and '46, butwaseo unpopular that the very men who insti gated and carried it out were compelled to quit it, We say again it it a mean business, that no man of honor, one who loves fair dealing, will engage in. But there are dirty dogs to be found everywhere willing to do the dirty Work of the party. This honor, the democracy of Millers burg bave left for one or two of their followtrs to monopolize this campaign, ii ' ' For the Republican. IOWA, 1860. Mb. J Casket, Dear Sir, I Kins', thank you for the occasional papers which yon have sent me. They always contain something which I am glad to see. . During Anno Domini 1853-6-7, the western development of young America, was baring a high old time. lie was a man of no soul who did not -make tea thousand dollars a year, and live at the rate of fifteen, mortgaging his bocae for the balance. Uea -estate doubled and trippled every year. Corner lots, and sites lor residences, with grounds and ir noo, ran opto dizzy heights. Newly started bankers and merchants, with no capital but brat. A. and B. exchanged personal notes for a few hundred thousand dollars, and on this capital opened banks. D. went East, where business men think themselves sharp, and on the strength of supposition land claims, Drought on awiiolesnie store, which he hastened to sell for less than cost , or perhaps mortgaged for, money at fifty per cent, and immediately reinvested in lands. Ev ery body was rich ia lands real estate. Seven teen river towns were "laid out'' not to be buried, but built, which were soon to rival Lon don or Jeddo. The rule in laying out a city, was to go op and down the river as tar as the eye could reach from the boat landing, and as tar back into the country as farms were fenced. that all the settlers might share ia the rise of property in the city Una s, and pay city taxes. Each ot these cities happened to be located on the venerable Father of Waters, just where cer tain (i. a. uncertain) routes of eastern commerce and travel must center. I started one morning for a walk in one of these towns, cot among ra vines and thickets, was lort in the city, but not a bouse could be seen. . Alter beating about for some time, I got to a clear spot and saw a board nailed on a bush, from which I found my local ity, was at the corner of Sixty-ninth St, and Paradise Avenue. .. .Napoleon, or some other master butcher has said, "nothing is so unlike a review as a battle." I believe some of the un terrified in Wayne and Holmes, from personal experience, can testily, that nothing is so unlike getting drunk as be coming sober. I believe there are a few here who have a distinct conception of a difference between giving a bond at fifty per cent, and paying it when it is due. I hare ever beard Eastern capitalists, expatiating on the difference between lending money at handsome rates, and getting it back. Young America having been very high, woke up one morning and found him self with a sick stomach, bad headache, feeling caved in and of not much account, and has been irritable and savage ever since. There is most ly something forcible in the tlattg phrases of ev ery community. ' There is something both strong and picturesque in the word dangled, as used nere. riuanciauy, it signiues oeing covered with mortgages. A man will have his farm mortgaged, his team and wagon and plow and harrow, his hay and corn crib, his milch cow and pig, the bed he sleeps on. the pot in which he boils his potatoes, and the table off of which he eats them, the grain when it begins to grow, and the wheat when it is sown. Nay, 1 have heard of the litter ot pigs not yet dropped, be ing mortgaged, and the innocent calf which had not yet seen the light having its head thittglcd with a mortgage; and it is possible that the ver itable records of some western counties, might show deeds of trust, covering certain hens and their issue, owned and possessed by the said "A. B." From all this it appears a man may have a roof without being particularly protected against inclemencies of the weather. . But 1 am not at all disheartened with this country. It is a glorious land. Its produce may be exhausted in paying ill advised debts, for three or four years to come; but it will yet be one of the healthiest and most productive of the States. The harvest here is good. Some time ago von might travel twelve miles, and for six miles on either hand yon could not see an acre but what was cither planted or sown. And now go out anywhere and the country just as as far as you can see is covered with shocks, or dotted with stocks. The yield of grain will be very large, and it prices are fair as they now promise, there will be much increase of proper ty. Nothing can exceed the pleasure of plow ing these rich mellow soils, without hills or rocks or stumps, unless it is pocketing the mo ney for the crop. All yon will care to hear about politics is, that Iowa is sure to Old A. X. [From the Chicago Union.] The West in Congress. It will require about 125,000 persons for each member of Congress under the new census. As the population ot Ohio is 2,560,000, she will get twenty members, with a large unrepresented fraction. The Stale will, therefore, lose one member. The population of Michigan is 750,000, which will give her six new members of Congress, instead of four as at present, Wisconsin will also get six; she now has three. Iowa will be entitled to five members, with a chance for a sixth. Indiana will probably gain one member. She has now eleven. Illinois will be entitled to thirteen mem bers, with a fair chance for fourteen. She now has nice. Minnesota, whose population is 180,000 will loose a member, and bave, for the next ten years one, instead of two Con gressmen , though to day she bas a popu lation enough for two. The census is bas ed on the number of inhabitants in tho State on the first day of June. 1860. Missouri will ram two members, bhe has seven now, an will have nine here after. Placing the Western Slates in tabular form, the representation for the next ten years, as compared with the last decade, will be as follows : 1850 1860 Ohio 21 20 Indiana 11 12 Illinois... 9 13 Michigan.. ....... . 4 6 Wisconsin . . 3 6 Minnesota 2 1 , Iowa . 2 5 Missouri... 7 9 Total ... 59 72 The West will be t power in the coun cils of the nation hereafter. . Speculations on Buchanan. Confidence in the "Old Public Func tionary" at the White House has so often been misplaced, that a person who trusts in him takes the chances. The people gen erally have not the least confidence in his integrity ; it is bard to say that of so old a man, but it is .true. ,: "Occasional," the Washington correspendent of the Philadel phia Preu has the charity to believe Mr. Buchanan dare rebuke disunion. He says : With all James Buchanan s truckling to the South, be is still a Northern man, and he realizes that it would be impossible for bim ever to return to Pennsylvania if he did not make one effort to obliterate the record of his transgressions, or if, with par ricidal hand, he aided the .disunionists to set fire to the temple of our liberties. The voices of his greatest predecessors, Washington and Jackson, speak to him from their graves. He heart them in bis sleep, and sees them in his dreams, and be will no more disregard them than be would dare to reject an appeal of the Deity. ' He will try to make a great virtue of a great necessity, snd while turning bis back upon the bold men whom ho has hereto fore encouraged, he will look begignantly for aid and and comfort from the section and the interest he has so cruelly persecu ted. Mark the prediction! James Bu chanan will make a Union demonstration (and probably before the meeting of Con- fress) that will not only put fire-eaters in a ostiie attitude to him, and save Mr. Lin coln's administration from all trouble, but that will be made with the expectation to deprive the sew President of the credit of adjusting the difficulty for himself.

An Ohio drover named Seaton was clev erly caught at Suspension Bridge the other day. He had gone off witb a large sum of money belonging to parties at Mansfield, Ohio, which the officers were after. The Buffalo Commercial says: - . . , "They left here on the morning train, at 9 o'clock, and on the arrival of the first train at the Bridge from Rochester, made a thorough search, but could not discover their man. The Ohio officer wished tore turn. Marvel objected, thinking he might have waited over one train, and that the chances were that he would arrive during the day. And it was lucky he did so. When the next train arrived, the officer went through the cars, and coming out, in formed Marvel that the man was uot-on board. And he was not. But Marvel bad kept his eyes open, aud had seen a person very much resembling the man be "want ed" jump from the after part of the train, and entering the telegraph office. They followed bim in, and found him sending a dispatch to his wife instructing her to meet him in Canada. It may be mentioned that he had previously telegraphed her to meet him at the Bridge; but, becoming fright ened, as is supposed, had made up his mind to leave the United States as speedily as possible. He was taken into a room for the purpose of being searched. About this time his wife arrived from Buffalo, and was also present. Seaton declared he had only seven hundred dollars with him, which he would give up. But officer Marvel would hear of no compromise. The man then said his wife had some money, which had been given her by her father, and that, with this, he might make up two thousand dollars. But Marvel was obdurate, and in sisted ou 'the bond.' "It was finally agreed that if (he two officers would leave the room, the whole amount, a trifle short of three thousand five hundred dollars, would be paid. They were locked in the room, and Marvel, al ternately placing bis eye and ear to the key hole, saw the lady open her trunk, and beard the chink of the 'bright and yellow, and hard cold' metal, as she deliberately counted out the twonty-two hundred dol lars required to make up the needed amount. Re-entering the room, the money was hand ed over, and as they bad no criminal pro cess against the man, he was allowed to go, which advantage was immediately taken advantage of and but a very short time elapsed before the twain were in the ad joining Province of Upper Canada." Newspaper Enterprise. The general agent of tho New York As sociated Press was in our village, a few days since, for the purpose of locating some carrier pigeons which the associaiion are about to employ for the purpose of inter cepting the in-bound European steamers off Fire Island. The same parties have for many years past employed pigeons at Halifax, N. S., and at Sandy Hook, whero they have proved of great servive and have doubtless contributed in no small degfee to the association's world-wide reputation for successful enterprise in outstripping all their opponents whether editors, news agents, or speculators in the early recep tion of the European news. Prompted by their past success, and inspirited, perhaps, somewhat by the expressed determination of a majority of the directors of the Amer ican Telegraph Company to strangle the Associated Press, and themselves control all the news of the Old World and the New, the association have, we understand, decided to extend their pigeon express to every point along the seaboard, from New York to Cape Race, where it is possible to bave the steamers intercepted. Among the points that are thus to bo covered in addition to Halifax, Sandy Hook and Fire Island are, we understand, Monlauk Point, Nantucket, Portland, Si. John's, N. F., and Cape Race. The breed of birds used by the associaiion is the cel ebrated Antwerp carriers, which, when properly trained and used, will, we are re liably assured, fly at the rate of one mile per minute, and unerringly, from the point where they are thrown up, to their home. ,acu bird will carry, when properly adjust ed to its legs, matter enough to make a column of our paper, and our readers will be gratified to learn that we bave made arrangements by which we shall be ablo to receive by the association s birds all the interesting points of each steamer's news within a few moments after tne steam er arrives (in the day lime,) in the vicinily of Fire Island. The birds have been lo cated in excellent quarters, upon the pre mises of Mr. B. C. bmitb, in our village, and we understand Ibey are soon to be put to work. The news will be sent to New York by tho nearest telegraph station, or by a relay of carriers, as circumstances may require. Babylon. ( k. J.J Democrat. XSTThe pickpockets of London and Paris bave long enjoyed the reputation of being the most adroit in Europe; but, if we may believe tne . statement of a M. Charles W , Stultgart can fully rival those cities. That gentleman was walking in the Aonigstrasse, looking at the shops, when he was accosted by an obsequious little man, who offered his services to show him the lions of the capital, but the other refused the offer. .The officious personage, however, was not offended, but politely asked him what o'clock it was. The other answered that he did not know, as his watch had stopped, and continued his walk toward the Museum of Natural History, which be entered. He bad not been there many minutes before the same person came up to him with the air of an old acquaint ance and offered him a pinch of snuff. This M. W declined, saying he was no snuff-taker, and walked away ; but some minutes after, having a presentiment of something being wrong, he felt for his snuff box, but instead of it found a scrap of paper in bis pocket, on which was writ ten, "As you are no snuff-laker, you do not require a box.? He thought the log ic of his unknown acquaintance ralher im pertinent, and resolved to bear his loss like a philosopher; but what was his amaze ment, when a moment after, ho discovered that hie watch had also disappeared, aud in his other pocket was a note, in the fol lowing words: "As your watch does not tell the hour, it would be bettor at the watchmaker's than in your pocket." It is unnecessary to say that he never heard any further tidings of the two articles. New Infertal machine-A Live Adder Sent in Letter to a Faithless Wife. The inmates' of the Pestof&ce were thrown into a stale of general consterna tion yesterday afternoon by a series of the most vigorous and agonizing screams pro ceeding from one of the hallways of the building.-'; Upon investigation, the source of the outcry was found to be a colored woman, who was wringing her hands and apparent ly iu a slate bordering on insanity. The bystanders questioned her as to be trou bles, to which she made no response, but pointed to a lively little green adder, which was rapidly wriggling over the floor to wards open air. - - A general stampede ensued, but after a long effort the "varmint" was properly se cured and taken to the City Marshal's of fice. It appears that the colored ladv, Mrs. Philander Pierce, has a husband down in Georgia. Their marital life has not been one of the most pleasant or poetic, and several letters of domestic objurgations have passed between them. lesterday Mrs. Pierce went to the Post Office, and took out a little pasteboard box containing a letler. As sbe was removing it, she was removing it, sbe was slightly surprised at hearing a hiss in the box, and almost in stnnlly the green bead, glittering eyes and barbed tongue of the aforesaid adder shot up before her bewildered vision. She drop ped the box like a hot coal, and hence the screams. , The letter concluded with these post scripts : "Kiss this dear little pet for me, and take it and sleep with it, for God's sake." "P. S. They say that blue is true, and let this bite you, and you will find out this is a good little bedfellow. That the diabolical Philander supposed his wife was going to play Cleopatra with the charming present be sent her, is not for a moment to be entertained ; but rath er that be concocted this unique style of making way witb her, is probable. At any rale his designs have failed miserably, and his snakeship, peacefully coiled up in a bottle of alcohol, will decorate the walls of the Audubon Club. Chicago Journal, 23d. Death of on Eccentric Old Man. The Coroner of New Orleans on Sun day held an inquest on the body of David Caledonia, found dead in a warehouse on the side of the river. He was a Scotch man a misanthropic old fellow, 75 years of age, without any particular friends, or relatives or defendants of any kind, that any one knew of. He was, years ago, a man of fine literary attainments, and has' written excellent poems, which are said to be still extar.t. - Some years ago he ignored all sympathy wilh the human race, and took to dogs. Well known to be honest and trustworthy, he was not denied the only place he want ed, a corner in the warehouse, with the privilege of keeping as many dogs as he pleased. His dogs were his only apparent comfort ; he ate with them, slept witb them. No theif or incendiary, not even an honest visitor in day-light, could enter the ware house without the dogs giving the alarm, and pultiug him to flight. The old man took sick at last and died. Whether he had any friend beyond his dogs, did not appear. It was well known that he slept with his dogs, they nestling and sleeping around him as if they were his own chil dren. The Coroner and his jury armed them selves with sticks and stones and entered the warehouse. In a distant corner, hud dled together, they counted fifteen dogs, curs mongrels of all colors and sizes, crouch in together, silent and summissive. They seemed to know that their old protecior was dead, and that strangers had a right to enter. In another corner, where the old man had so long slept like a dog with his dogs, they found his corpse, foul with filth of his dirt and last sickness. Upon and around him were no less than fifteen puppies; two of them dead, and the others whining aud crawling over and about him. It was plain that during his last illness the dogs had slept with him, and that his deaih and the interruption of strangers had compelled not only the dogs but ibe sluts to desert the body nnd tbe young puppies and crouch in a distant corner of the warehouse. Tbe Coroner and his jury were thoroughly sickened ; the story of the old man and the evidence before them enabled them to ren der the verdict of death by dysentery ; aud the Coroner, in ordering the burial of the loalhsome remains of a man once bright, talented, and honored, told the negro em ployed that he might bury tbe two dead puppies in the same coffin wilh the dead old man, who bad withdrawn from human ity and lived and died only with dogs. N. O. Crescent. News. In our telegraph column will be found a remarkablh caae of forgery iu Indiana, in which men of high business positions, officers, in a Bank, are the culprits, and have been successful in perpetrating one of the greatest frauds in the history of our country. Mr. and Mrs. Louglas it will be seen, have had a narrow escape at Mont gomery, but fortunately were but little in jured. That "murder will oat" is clearly proved in the announcement tbat tbe mur derer of Vol. Davenport, at Kock Island, fourteen years ago, has been arrested, If we remember rightly, Col. D. was shot through tbe window of his house, which was situated on the Island in the Missis sippi, botween Davenport and Rock Island city. We believe CoL D. held an office under government at that time. We learn from the Eaton Register that a son of David Taylor, living between Winchester and Elkton, (about 19 years of age,) accidedtaiiy shot himself on Tuesday, wniie blowing turough his enn. with bis foot upon the hammer: his foot slinninsr causea a aiscuarge.
