On Saturday last there was held in Hardy township, an election for Justice of the Peace. The candidates voted for were Jons Albektsoh, Esq., and A. J. Estill, Esq. The former is the present Justice, and the latter is Editor of - the Holmes County Farmer, and has for a while past, labored under the misapprehension that lie was supporting Mr. Douglas for the Presi dency. The contest was uninteresting until about the middle of the day, when tbe friends ot each of the candidates warmed op, and the voting became quite spirited. We are sorry to say, however, that our neighbor of the Farmer was defeated, and therefore, his rooster was not seen hoisted in front of his office window, as has 'been his custom for some time past, immediate ly after an election. Now we should like to have an explanation of a part of the proceedings of Saturday. Has the Editor of the Farmer turned Republican, and was it stipulated in the conditions of his turning that the Republicans should immediate ly give him office? The Ticket as voted, read ' as follows: "Republican Ticket. ForJusticea A. J. Estill." No Tickets with his name on it were printed at this office. We noticed him busy among tlia Republicans urging them out to vote. .What doe it mean? Has be turned Republican, and, if yes, is the Farmer hereafter to be a Republican paper? If this is a part of the arrangement we had better retire or turn Democrat, and publish the organ for that party ' in this county. We have indeed fallen upon singular times. Every day brings forth some thing new, and we fear that the tide which comes sooner or later in every man's life, has turned the Editor's of the Farmer wits inside out, ot that the crisis, which was to have arro " Ten, have arriven. Election News. We have notling further to give than what was' published last week. The majority in . Missouri and Virginia will be very small, and , the official vote of these States will be required to tell for whom they have voted. Likcolx gets 4 out of the 7 votes in.N. Jersey, and probably 4 in California, as the news from that quarter . looks quite favorable. . No word from Oregon yet. gThe Akron people had a jollification over the election of Ltjccolx, oa Friday evening last. Over 200 of our people attended, and at all the stations along the Rail Road they kept adding to the numbers, so that it amounted to near 500 when we arrived at Akron. Several hundred Wide Awakes' were on pa . rade, whilst the Bands discoursed sweet mnsic. , The fire-works were good, the supper provided was excellent in quality, and sufficient in quan tity to feed a 1,000 people. Various other means of jollification, not oa the programme, were also found. The citizens of Akron, particularly the i"h c vupiains. xoDg may mey wave. t The Southern fire-eaters are repudiating . the debtB they owe Northern merchants. We . wis'j it would become fashionable in the North . (it is so already, with some of our subscribers.) to repudiate the payment of debts. We are in . condition just now to appreciate such an ar- rangement Massachusetts. The fire-eaters of the South teem to have a particular grudge against the people of Massachusetts. If that State will agree to leave the Union, the fire-eaters would consent to remain in it. Massachusetts was the first to iniate the revolution which gained ns . our liberties., Massachusetts was the first to . pass retaliatory laws to offset those passed in the South, by which Northern men were de prived of their rights and their liberties in the : South. Massachusetts has more Colleges, more - Academies, more intelligence, than all the Cot- ton States combined, and Massachusetts can, in one week's time, bring men enough into the field to whip all the fire-eaters of the South in to subjection. No wonder they donl like Mas sachusetts. t$"So-AB Clabx of Tuscarawas county, was lately arrested on a charge of forgery,, and on i pleading guilty was sentenced by the Court to three years hard labor in the Penitentiary. ' TStawo SurpBAOK. The opposition charge the Republicans with being favorable to letting the ' negroes vote. The best test of the truth of this charge is the result of tbe recent vote in New York State, for and against an amendment to . the Constitution, allowing negroes the right of suffrage. Although the State went Republican by about 50.000 majority, yet there were hard ly 5,000 votes polled in favor of the amendment- ' Doesn't that flatten out this lie? 3f Ishak Bolt, of Laurenceville, S. C be came somach harrassed by fear of negro insur rection, that he blew his brains out oa the 16th. Tbe more usual plan in such cases is to hang a pedler. Will the Neglect of the Governor Vitiate the Vote of Ohio for President, and if so, will it Alter President, and if so, will it Alter the Result? The idle story first started by the OhioBtatet man, that the vote of Ohio would be thrown oat for informality, because the Governor did, not issue bis proclamation in time, has, we think, no foundation in truth." if such a thing could be done, it would give a dishonest Governor a fearful power. Believing the State would vote for a candidate to whose election he was opposed by a single omission of duty, for which he could easily plead ignorance.be could disfranchise the voters of the State, and thus might elect his can didate by a fraud a state of affairs not to be tolerated. Had a large portion of the people refused to vote, there might have been some grounds for the idle tale, but as all voted, it is a matter of very little consequence, except to the Governor himself, whether the proclamation was a few days before or a few days after tbe specified time. Another fact in connection with the talc, in which there seems very great niisnpprehen sion exists, is that if the vote of Obio be thrown out, and Lincoln fail to get the vote of Califor nia and Oregon, he would be defeated the Constitutioa requiring him to get a majority of all the Electoral votes, the same as if all the States had voted. This is incorrect. The Con stitutioa, Article XII of the Amendments, savs: " the person having the greatest num ber of votes for President, shall be Prouder t. if such number 6c a majority of the whole number of Elector affowteo. ' tc. If all the States appoint Electors, it swells the number to 303, of which the successful ean- eidrte must have 152, that being a majority Of the whole number of electors appointed. If Ohio docs not appoint "Electors" if her vote is cast aside and her "Eleotobs" declared not "ap pointed," it reduces the number of Eletoral votes to 280, of which number 141 would be ne cessary to a choice. As.it now stands, Lincoln has 169 Electoral votes deduct from this the 23 votes of Obio, and it leaves him 146 votes, five more than the number necessary to a choice. Thus it will be seen that, so far as Lincoln and the triumph of Republicanism isconcenied, it is a matter of no consequence whether the vote of Ohio be thrown out or be counted without it he will have the constitutional ma jority, and with it that majority will only h the larger. National Democrat. "Prior to 1846, each State, by its own laws fixed the time when they would vote for elect ors for President and Vice President In Ohio, the law of February 15, 1820, provided that the Presidential election should be on the fiftli Friday preceding the Ant Wednesday in December. It also provided that the Governor should give 60 days previous notice, by proclamation, to be inserted in one of the newspapers in each coun ty ot the State. In 1846, Congress seeing the evils arising from holding the elections at different periods in different States, passed a law that the Presi dential Election should be uniform all over the Union, and fixing the Tuesday next after thcfint Monday of November as the day for voting in all the States. This substantially repealed all the State laws on the subject. It fixed the time and placed it beyond the power of any of the Stales to vary or change it in any respect. The only legislation that was proper, (and that was not necessary ) was to change their laws to conform to the laws of Congress. This law of Congress merely fixed the day, without providing for any notice. Our statute had been permitted to stand, except the change of the time. In 1848, the Governor of Ohio made no proclamation trhatcver. We suppose he regarded the law of Congress as a virtual repeal of that requirement. In 1852, the election of President came on the 2d day of November. Gov. Wood issued his proclama on th 27th of September being 37 days before the election. In 1856, Gov. Chase isssued his proclamation on the 20th day of September; the election was on the 4th November, making 46 days notice. Gov. Dennison considering, as we suppose, the law of Congress as substantially di-pensing with the necessity of a notice, yet in deference to the practice of bis immediate predecessors. published his proclamation on the 17th day of Sept being 51 days before the election, thus giving longer notice than his immediate prede cessors, finch are the laws regulating this sub ject, and such has been the practice under them. If any proclamation were needed it Ebould.be issued by the President of the United States, as the Governor is not the proper person to pro claim the laws of Congress. No one regards the proclamation as in any respect essential to the validity of the election. Courts have uni- formily decided that the want of notice for the election of County Officers, Ac, by Sheriffs, did not render their election a nullity. The law fixes the time and manner of their election, and it was never the intention to give Sheriffs or Governors the power to disfranchise Counties or States by either a neglect, or a' refusal to issue their proclamations. In this case the time being fixed by Congress, the people have their rights without any regard to State laws, or the acts of Stale officials. We. trust this plain statement will quiet the sensitive nerves of our Demo cratic friends. The twenty-three Electoral Votes of Ohio will be counted for Lincoln just as they were for Cass and Pierce, and Freuiout."

The People of the United States have by the Constitution, their desire that Abra ham Lincoln of Illinois shall b their next President, and Hannibal Hamlin of Maine their Vice President, A very huge plural jty of-the popular tpte has been ast for them, and a decided majority of Electors cuosen wno will undoubtedly vote for and elect then! on the first Wednesday in De cember next. The electoral votes will be formally sealed up and forwarded to Wash ington, there to be opened and counted, on a given day in February next, in the presence of both Houses of Congress; and it will then be tbe duty of Mr. John C Breckenridge, as President of the Senate, !o declare Lincoln and Hamlin dulv elect ed President and Vice President of these United States. Some "people do not like this, as is very natural. Dogberry discovered, a good while ago, that When two ride a horse, one must ride behind. That is not gener ally deemed the preferable seat ; but the rule remains unanected by tbat circumstance, We know bow to sympathize with the de feated; for we remember how ue felt when Adams was defeated ; and Clay ; and Scott and Fremont. It is decidedly pleasanter to oe on uie winning siae especially wnen as now it happens also to be the right side We sympathize with the afflcted: but we cannot recommend them to anything desperate. V bat is tbe use they are beat en now; tbey may triumph next time in fact they have generally had their own way: had they been subjected to discipline ot adversity as otten as we have, tbey would probniy bear it with more philoso phy, and deport themselves more befitting- ly. We live to learn; and one of the most dincult ficquiremenrs is that of meet ing reverses with graceful fortitude. The telegraph informs us that most of toe cotton Slates nre meditating a with drawal from tbe Union because of Lin coln's election. Very well: they have right to meditate, and meditation is a prof itable employment of leisure. We have a a chronic, invincible disbelief in Disunion as a remedy for either Northern or South ern grievance; we cannot perceive any necessary relation between the alleged dis ease and this ultra-heroic remedy: still, we sav, If any body sees fit to meditate Dis union, let tbem do so unmolested. That was a base and hypocritical row tbat tbe House once raised, at Southern dictation, about the cars of John Quincv Adams be cause he presented a petition for the disso lution of tbe Union. The petitioner had a right to make the request; it was the Member's duty lo present it. And now, if the Cotton Stales consider the value of the Union depatablo, we maintain their perfect right to discuss it. Kay: we hold with Jetterson to the inalienable right of communities to alter or abolish forms of government that have become oppressive or injurious; and if the Uotton States snail become satisfied that tbey can do bet ter out of the Union than in it we insit on letting them go in peace. Tbe right to secede may be a revolutionary one, but it exists nevertheless; and we do not see how one party can have a right to do what an other party has Aright lo prevent. We must ever resist the asserted right of any State to remain in the Union and nullify or defy the laws thereof: to withdraw from the Union is quite another matter. And whenever a considerable section of our Union shall deliberately resolve to go out, we shall resist all coercive measures design ed lo keep it in. Wo hope never to live in a republic whereof one section is pinned to the residue by bayonets. But while we thus uphold the practical liberty if not tbe abstract right of seceess ion, we must insist that the step be taken, if it ever shall be, with the deliberation and gravity befitting so momentous an is sue. Let ample time be given for reflec tion ; let the subject be fullv canvassed be for the people; and let a popular vole be taken in every case before seceesion is de creed. ' Let the people be told iust why they are urged to break up Die confedera . . ... tion ; let them have both sides of the ques tion fuiy presented, let them reflect, delib erate, then vote; and let the act of secess ion be the echo of an numistakable popu lar hat. A judgment thus rendered, a de mand for separation so packed, would eith er be acquiesed in without the effusion of blood, or those who rushed upon carnage to defy and defeat it would place them selves clearly in the wrong. I be measures now being inaugurated in the Cotton Slates within a view (apparent ly) to Secession, seem to us destitute ef gravity and legitimate force. They bear the unmistakable impress of baste of passion of distrust of tbe popular judg ment. They seem clearly intended topre- cipilae the South into rebellion before the baselessness of the clamors which have misled and excited her can be ascertained by the great body of her people. We trust that (hey will be confronted calm ness, with dignity,- and with unwavering trust in the inherent strength of the Union and the loyality of the American People. XarThe Cleveland Leader understands by a letter received in that city from Chi cago, that the bankers of the latter place have held a meeting at which it was re solved to throw out the notes of Illinois Banks which are secured in part or wholly by stocks of Southern States now tbreaten ening secession. This move was prompt ed by tbe extraordinary decline which those stocks have experienced since the secession commenced. By the banking laws of Illi nois, banks are permitted to secure their notes with stocks of other States, hence a portion have their issues secured by stocks of South Coroliiia, Georgia, and other would-be seceeding Slates. It is not stated what banks in Illinois will be effected by this move. If this report is true, it may have the effect of closing a few - Lanka in that Slate. The notes being secured, the bill holders need not necessarily lose. secession is proving a decidedly bad in vestment in the Cotton States. State Journal.

[From the Mark Lare Express, Oct. 8.] We hazarded an opinion a weeks since that the actual deficiency in produce of wheat would amount to one-fifth; and certainly everything that has since taken place has tended to connrm in is. liven those who at the 4ime were too sanguine to fall in with such a view of the case are now convinced that it was by no means an exaowereled one; and that even a much larger deficiency may be expected, on ac count of the smaller breadth than usual havinc been sown last seasons, in conse- auence of the high price for barley. Under these serious circumstances, which are much upon a par with those of the year 1816, it is necessary to look around us to see what prospect we nave ot obtain ino- an adequate supply from abroad. The following are the imports of wheat, and flour as wheat, for the seven years from 1853 to 1859 inclusive: Quarters. 1852 6,217,910 1854 4,373,085 1855 3,211,766 1856 5,207,147 1857... 4,060,285 : 1858 -5,343,469 1859-1 4,951,671 Divided by 7)33,465,533 w Average 4,780,790 This table shows that, taking one year with another, we cannot get through with less than four and three-quarter million Quarters, cut tne most notable tact is that the last crops were above the average in productiveness the imports have ave raged nearly five million quarters, (4,893, 193,) the greater part of which, as well as of tbe native produce, was consumed be fore the present harvest was ready. How, then, do we stand in regard to the present stock of wheat on hand, and the prosbect of importations in tbe coming season ! By tbe official returns, which we have recently published, it appears that ih the eight months of the present year ending the 31st of August, we have imported, in wheat and Hour, as follows: Wheat, quarters 2,528,640 Flour, " 703,740 Total 3,232,380 If we import at the same rate the re maining four months of the year, it will stand thus: Amount for eight months, qrs 3,232,380 One-half, qrs 1,616,190 Total 4,848,570 This will barely make np the average of tbe four previous years; whilst after Christ mas, unless we have an unusually mild winter, the imports will cease for four months, in consequence of the frost. We have fortunately had large arrivals during the past month of September, and we hear tbat the Americans are making ex tensive preparation for getting ns much as possible to the Atlantic seaboard before the frosts set in. On tbe other hand, it is quite certain that there will be a large and continuous demand for foreign corn from this time till march or April, on account ot the damp and inferior character of the new wheat, and the very small slock of old native corn remaining on band. Thus, last week, no less than 23,000 quarters were sent from London by the Eastern Counties Railway alone; and it is calcula by some of tbe factors tbat fuliy 50,000 quarters were sent into the coutry during the week by all conveyances beyond what we used in London. This is far more than we imported. It is therefore, proba ble tbat before the ports on the continent re-open after the winter the greater part of tbe imported wheat will have been con sumed. Under these circumstances, the markets already feel the pressure and are buoyant, But as it is probable tbat we shall have a large delivery of English wheat afier har vest, it may keep the price from rising ex travagantly high. Any such modification of rates depends however, upon the nmount of the importations, as there will be an en ormous range between the price of the best and inferior wheats of home growth. An instance of this occurred last week in Mark lane, when a factor sold on the same day twu samples belonging to the same person the one, old, which brought 64s; whilst the other, new made only 44s per nr. ibis will aurora a pretty good idea of the injury tbe crops have sustained, which we are convinced is much more extensive than most persons, even in the trade are ware of.

Fowler's "Life Illustrated," published in New. York, i one of the best family news papers." In its last issue we find, among other good things the following sensible re marks: t t ; ' I "Reader, did you ever reflect on the sub ject of supporting liberally to the press, and first of all, your own local newspaper! If not, permit us to suggest to your own. privilege and your duty in this respect, "Each city, town and village, in a country like the United States, should be represented by a live local newspaper, and it would be well, not only for the people and the place so represented, to have a paper which would reflect credit on both, but a paper which would be an honor and a credit to the State and nation. Stran gers from abroad judge ns by our newspa per press and hence the importance of ma king that instrument as perfect and potent as possible. "It is the duty of every citizen of each place to contribute something toward im proving and strengthening the local press. He may do it by subscribing and pay ing for bis paper, by advertising in it, by recommending it to others, or in all of these ways. Were the country press as liberally patronized and as well supported as it should be, the country would not be so flooded with the wortless trash in the shape of "love and murder stories," as it now is, which poison and vitiate minds of the young There is usually more moral integrity and circumspection manifested by editors of the country press than by those in the large cities, and a more healthy tone of mind and moral will generally be found to pervade them. They are more free from the reports of degrading vices and crimes, and are never opened with that feeling of suspicion which attaches to the common 'flash' literature of the day. "The country press may be improved. Each individual residing within the limits of its sphere and circulation may aid in its improvement. He may be on the 'lock out' for interesting information, and when this is obtained, communicate it to the ed itor. He may bring his own business be fore the public by an appropriate adver tisement, or, if be bas beef, pork or grain to sell, he may announce it through his local press. He may give historical sketch es of the past, and showiug the progress ana changes going on at present. lie may help matte bis local paper a source of in struction to strangers, and of entertain ment to his neighbors.

Let him invite capital and influ ence by setting forth such natural advan tages as the place may possess, and indi cate the routes by which it may be reached, its accessibility to the markets, etc. There is no estimating the advantages to any town or village of a live local journal, and wu doubt if there is to be found at the pres ent time an editor who gets fully paid for the services he performs, and we put the responsibility where it belongs namely on the people, whose business and duly it is, first of alL to support handsomely lueir own local paper. The Prospect Before Us. It is not to be supposed that the elec tion of Abraham Lincoln as President of these United States conspicious and glo rious triumph as it is will at once restore the country to political harmony and quiet though we are convinced that the agitation raised in tbe South will gradually and surely subside into peace. We shall hear something, indeed, of the secession projects with which the ultra anti-Republicans in the South, and their servile organs in this City, lately attempted to frighten us into the abandonment of our principles and our rights. But we trust tbat what talk we do hear of this sort will end in no ads that are not well considered and deliber ately prepnred. Vehement resolutions of Southern State Legislatures in behalf of so-called Southern rights, calls for South ern Conventions, and even the meeting of the same, may naturally influence, as hith erto, the local politics of the States which take part in tbem, without, of necessity, seriouslv atlecling the integrity of tbe Union. But the Republicans must prepare them selves to encounter something more formi dable a combination of all the elements of the Opposition to nullify as far as pos- ble the victory we have obtained, and so to delay for a while longer tbose reforms in tbe administration of our i ederal af fairs tbe main objects which the Republi can party have in view. We have secured the Presidency, but tbe other departments of the federal Administration the Son ate and the house of Representatives, not to mention tbe Judiciary are still in the hands of our opponents. We have placed ourselves in a position to prevent much evil in the misuse and abuse of Executive patronage and authoily. We have given tbe politicians of tbe anti-Kepublican par ty, both North and South, to understand that the feelings, sentiments, instincts, and interests of the great free-labor masses are not be trampled upon with impunity. Hut tbe party whose misconduct of our nation al affairs called Republicanism into exis tence, and bus given it so rapid a growth, tbat party still survives, and, cut in two as it is, will strive, like a dissevered snake to reunited its disjointed fragments. The conspiracy between the slave interest of the Southern States and the demngoueism and flunkeyism of the North, to engross the administration of the federal uovern ment, and to render the free labor element as nugatory in tbe Union as it is the Slave Stales, will be renewed and vigorously issed. The great victory we have just achieved is but one step no doubt a most important one toward the thorough re form of tbe administration of our nation al affairs and toward putting the question of blavery in the lernlories at rest forever. Labor and struggle, wisdom and nrmness will still be necessary to bring that consu mation about. A Columbus Man with Garibaldi.

The preamble of the Convention bill reads as follows: Whereas, The present crisis in national affairs in the judgement of the General Assemblay, demands resistance; And whereas it is the privilege of the people to determine the mode and measure of time of such resistance, therefore, the General Assembly enacts that the Governor issue his proclamation ordering the election on the 9th of January' Tbe 1st, and 2d and 3d sections of the bill refer to the time of the election, the meeting of the Convention and number of delegates to which ecah county is entitled. Tbe 4th section reads that said Conven tion, when assembled, may consider all grievances impairing or affecting the qual ity and rights of the people of Georgia as members of the United States, and deter mine the mode, measure, and time of re dress. Tbe 5th sections provides for the amount to pay the delegates; and said Convention shall, by vote, fix tbo pay of all their offi cers; and any delegate or delegates tbey may appoint to any Convention, Congress, or Embassy, and provide for all other ex penses incurred by the Convention. The 8th section gives the power to elect their officers, and do all neenful lo carry out the true intention and meaning of this act and purposes of the Covention. SECESSION. MOBILE, Nov. 17. The Register declares for secession ; it says, the large sectional vote North and Sonth, proves a common Government im possible, and all efforts to save the Union fruitless. It appeals to conservative men to take the movement into their own hands, as the only means of avoiding the worst cansequences of an inevitacle revolution. GENERAL NEWS. AUGUSTA, Ga., Nov. 18. The bill appropriating $1,000,000 to arm and equip Georgia is a complete law. Tbe Florida Legislature at its last ces sion passed a resolution promising decided action in case of the election of a Repub lican President; requiring the governor to convene the Legislature. The Jackson ville Standard and other papers urge com pliance. Advices from Arizona mention the dis covery of very rich gold mines near Pin oalto. . Parties were realizing from $4000 to $5000 per day. Official dispatches from Gov. Owens, concerning these mines are en route to Washington. : Despatches from Charleston announce the resignation of Mr. Bonham, member of Congress. RUMORS FROM WASHINGTON, NEW YORK Nov. 19. The Times' Washington' correspondent says information is received here that Ex- Grov. Aiken opposes secession. M. Otero, delegate to Congress from New Mexico, has written home advising his conststutuents to connect their desti ny with tbe Pacific States should the Un ion be dissolved. Californians in Washington declare their purpose of advocating an independent Republic on the Facibc side. Secretary Cobb writes to Assistant Treasurer Cisco that the bidders for the recent Government loan who shall pay up one half their offers by the 22J inst. will be allowed 30 days from tbat date to pay the remainder. Mr. Floyd, Secretary of War, has ex pressed his determination to hand over the forts and arsenals in South Carolina intact to bis successor on the 4th of March. Any attempt, therefore, to seize them by the secessionists, as suggested by Mr. Rbett, would inevitably lead to serious conse quences. Position of Virginia. RICHMOND, Nov. 16. The proposal of Virginnia is to main tain a position of armed neutrality until she is prepared to tender . her services as meditator under tbe official sanction of the Legislature or Convention called by its authorities. She will meanwhile prepare for the worst, for if the States now threat ening to secede shall adopt her programme, and that shall fail to be carried out, by non compliance on the part of the North. Virginia will unite in the secession move ment. She will ask the Southern States to go into a conference with her, and it is understood they will go, provided she lays down beforehand tbe programme which shall from the basis of action, which shall em prase. First, A repeal of the statutes nullify ing the Fugitive Slave Law by those States which have passed such statutes, with guaranty of a faithful enforcement of that law in tbe future. Second, A concession that tbe Consti tution authorizes the carving of slaves into tbe common territories, and consequent protection of slave property therein. 1 bird, i bat Congress nor the executive shall intefere, except for its protection in the latter when necessary. 10,000 stand of arms are now being dis tributed in Mississippi, by order of Gov. Pettus. Accounts recently received here repre sent that btate as almost unanimous torse cession. JE3TThe women of Charleston are a bout as wild on the secession question as the men. The dear creatures instead of attending to their domestic affairs, and set ting an example of angelic meekness and humacitv before their female slaves, are en gaged in making and hanging out Palmet to flairs. ' The men are strutting about in cockades and making fools of themselves generally, while their business is going to rack. The cotton is lying still, not a bale having been shipped for several days, and the banks are all in their last gasp. Bank ruptcy and starvation will soon put a stop to their m'serable secession farce. ' What his old Neighbors Think of Him.
