Fiabingcreek is the banner township for :
majorities I But ail the others have done I
web; even in Scott there are 97 roles for
Buchanan where Bigler had but 68 in 1854,
aad Plumer bat 25 in 1855. The result of ■
the State election artoncded and irritated the
opposition, antktetey worked bard to regain
the ground tlieflpd lost. Loud was their
exultation over IT majority io Bloom, where
they had 81 a year ago! Delighted also '-
were they with gains in CaUwissa, Scott and ;
Greenwood, which Mill left them far behind
their former majorities in those districts. But
the other townships stood firm, or did bet- ;
tar, and the eonnty givea Buchanan a pow- ;
erfnl majority of over one thnniar.d four bun-1
dred as a free will offering of ber people. ,
The vole of Mr. Scott for Canal Commie- j
siouer in Ootober waa not a teat of parly
strength as be reoeived between one and '
two fcoodrd opposition votes, and doubtless ,
his being a candidate aided, to some small ex-:
tent the vole of Fry and Rowe the other caodi
dates qpon the Democratic State ticket. The
Congressional vote (1406 majority) ia per
haps the fair one to velect as indicating the
Democratic strength, as Mr. Montgomery re
ceived the full perty support ami nothing
We are firmly of the opinion that the in
undation of Fremont orators from the Korib '
and East upon u*. maferially aided o.o r vote
in this coonty. Before they came our friends
claimed a majority of 900 with tropes of ex
ceeding it aomewhst, especially upon Canal
Commissioner. But these men came with
word* of falsehood and bill* mear—men un
scrupulous in statement and extravagant of
speech—and the reanll is, we obtain an in
crease of 600 majority over the moat can
goitre estimate previously made. No teas
than ten Fremont speeches were delivered
in a single week in Bloomtborg, and at other
points the Kansas question was opened "with
all the honors." All in vain, or rather worse :
than vain were these efforts of faction. Tbey
produced, or assisted to prodnee, a foil vote
ia the county as die relents show, infused .
activity and aatabtiahed onion in our raaks,
and disgueled reasonable, conservative men 1
who might otherwise have acted with the
opposition. We understand that Judge Wil
mot announced that the Democratic majority ,
in Cofambia should ba brought under 500;
10 which end be and bis fellow "sbriekers"
gave their personal attendance here, with
what effect has bean sees. Upon the whole
it is fair to conclude that Fremont missionary
service in this county has scarcely paid ex
penses, and thai, on the other band, it has
actually damaged the cause it waa intended
to subserve.
1 Oar people have judged Republicanism
(so called) and have powerfully condemned
it. And justly has their verdict been ren
dered. Tbey have carefully observed the
000 rse of the opposition, daring the period
over which oor statistics, above p ream ted,

iseoaa presented by it. lu 1886 the opposi

operating in the most satisfactory and salu

been in force since 1846 and won its wiy
inlo public favor, so thai none now complain .
of it. Know-Nothingiam has nearly died out
exjonld by its own violence and folly, and
the Kancaa issue is substantially disposed of
by the election of James Bccbanan. Who ,

"All the Decency nod Respectability.''
The Fremont blackguards are fast follow
ing in the wake of the old Federalist* who
arrogated to themselves all the decency and
respectability, and turned the cold shoulder
It) the "common plebeian." Know Nolh
ingism formed an organ in the Philadelphia i
Tunes, which more recently turned somewhat ,
Republican io its politics, but always went j
for "fusion." The Know Nothings and Re. !
publicans of lh< region devour it daily with ;
as much gusto as tboogh it were their bread |
of life. Now to show the food they live op
ou we extract a characteristic article which
was hawked arotnd this town in the Timesoo
last Thursday, and was enjoyed with a fine
relsh by the bigots and fanatics who arro
gate to -.hemvelves all the decency and re
spectability. Her* it is, and we hops every
true hearted "Dutchman" will read it and
band to bis neighbor that all may see the in
tolersnt and mean rpirit of men whose intel
lectual and political pabulum is these spew
ing* of a dtunken Know Nothing rowdy:
Modern Pontic.n F.otpts.—There are
1 several political Egypt* in the west—the
1 won't the pity. One ia in Missouri, among
the flint hills west of the month of the Obio,
extending op the St. Francis river country to
the vicinity of the lead mines. Hero the j
darkness is th ick enough to be felt. The peo- :
pie are known as " Black Dutch." Their i
progenitors emigrated long ago from Penn
sylvania to North Carolina, and from the tar i
and torpen-ir.e regions, their sens, too poor j
1 to own nigger*, and jn ignorant enough to I
prefer hnmes in a slave Sta'.e, emigrated to 1
the portion of Missouri. They have neither
. poblie highways, school-booses, mecting
j houses, or newspapers, and most of hem
! never saw a bank-note in their lives. They j
{ realize Old Eollion's sublime idea of a hard '
i raonby constituency, and vole jost as the j
' demagngne appointed to regulate their poll- j
lice directs them to. They voted for Gen. j
' Jarkson longer and stronger than even old j
j Berks of the Keystone.
! " Southern Illinois is a similar political
: Kgypt. It ts the oldest settled part ef the 1
; Stale, and remains in y-a 1" population,
' progrea*, and polities. The settlers are the '
I "poor white folks." too poor to own niggeri,
' from Kentucky, Tennessee, Virginia, and 1
■ North Carolina, and tbey transplanted into
' Illinois all their ignorance, ebiftleeaness, I
| rchoor honse-hating, tobacco-grinding, whis- 1
Ley-drinking habits. Too poor to own slaves 1
in a slave State, tbey nifl regard the institu
tion as from heaven, and they wonld vote to
re-open the slave Irade and establish the traf
. fiS in Illinois, unanimously. Their poblie
j roads are now daily nseJ by the tlave driver*
; for the travel of their homan chattels from
Kentucky and Virginia to Missouri, and with
just as mneh security of properly to the mas
ters as in Arkansas or Texas. Politically,
they vote one way and all the time. Egypt
is fam.ons for Democratic majorities, and the
1 patty leaden have only to ascertain how
large a majority ia necessary to overbalance !
the eo lightened portions of the stale, and '
Egypt honors the draft. In the lata election,
for instance, the four Congressional district*
1 north of Springfield gave Fremont about for'y
I thousand majority. Tbia was regarded as a
| settler, and the Republicans set down the :
; Stale as theirs beyond a pe rail venture. Doog

ascertained, Egypt began to report. And

I Not until of 'ate years, however, has any '
seriout opposition manifested itself in Eng- ;
land lo Ihe paymehl of tithes and Church j
rates. It it in Canada that the battle has
beenchwfly fimJMl Thar* the propinquity
of the United State# showed that religion '
: got along belter without any Stuto support ;
than with such as was afforded by the Colo
■ nial Government. The contrast along the
Canada border had been 100 striking, and
the whole system it swept away.
The London Times has at last come out
boldly and onnquivocally on the subject of
the separation of Church and State in the
Colonies of Great Britain. (1 admits as a
proved fact that where religion is thrown
upon the people, it will be at least as well
support?'.! as where the payment is enforced
by law or made out of the Treasury of the
Stale. In Australia and Canada, the gov
ernment is going to give up all attempts at
the support or preference of any denomina
tion. But in Great Britain, Ihe Times says,
"the fact is here we have an Establishment,
and we intend lo keep it."
But a few yesra ago the English Quarterly
Review came out in a fulminating article on
the lark of Church Establishments in the
United States, especially severe on the little
State of Roiide Island, delaring lhat the only
ministers she possessed, were such as were
too idle to work, and 100 ignorant for any
thing else, that the whole people were de
j moralized on account of that entire absence
j of all compulsory support of religion that had
ever marked the history ol that State. Now
it is shown by Dr. Baird'g recent work on
"Religion in America," that there is more'
than one minister to every eight hundred and
fifty inhabitants throughout the United Slates,
and lhat about a tboasand new churches ev
ery year are being built on the voluntary
; principle. Some of liieee are of cost fully
! proportioned to the increasing wealth of the
j worshippers. In Rhoda Island, and in every
j other Stat" in |i he^"*" 1 *! 'he mean* of wot- )
| ship are belter supplied in proportion to the j
j number of inhabitants than in most countries,
lif not any country in Europe. We have not, !
I it ia true, the ancient and well endowed Uni- !
| versitiea of England, but we have n large j
I number receiving a liberal education as are
receiving it at this moment ia those laslitu- (
! lions.
' These things being so, the only question i
j i*i bow long an established religion can hold j
j its ground, even in England 7 Given up in j
I all her provinces, how can she resist the ar-
I gumenls urged by dissenters at home? In
Ireland, for instance, where six men out of
every eight are Catholics, with what show of
justice can England continue lo exact upon
lhat unfortunate country the compulsory sup
port of the clergy of an glien faith merely |
lo provide places for the younger Bemacles?
In Scotland, two-thirds of the people have
; come S~* a*■ 11 ■ •siahlulunam. and
! joined the free church, and thus pay double.
How long will it do for the aristocratic few
who fill up the compulsory appointments |
with their own younger sona and brother* to j
say, "we will giv* up Church and State in ]
! the colonies, but here w* have got au estab 1
lishment, auti we mean to keep tV' In Eng- '
| land it**lf,4he Church rale* are openly re
t luted in every way, and in nsarly half the 1

After a long-period of doubt and many
conflicting reptfta, it seems now clearly as
certained that (lis Stale has cast her elector

Political Complexion of the Ncwor3slt> '
In seventeen Stale* where elections have j
been held, the Democrats have gained fifty
eight members. Present Democratic major- j
| i'y in the remaining fourteen States, three.
It is probable mat of the fourteen Slates
j where elections are yet to be hold, Alabama,
j Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Caro-
I lina, Tennessee, Texas, Delaware and Vir
| ginia, will elect Democratic members; that
I lite Kentucky and Maryland delegations will
! be largely Democratic, while Rhode Island,
{ New Hampshire and Connecticut are likely
! to elect opposition members. With the.-e
! facts and probabilities in view, the next
House of Representatives will stand as fol
lows :
Buchanan, 131
Opposition, 103
Buchanan's probable majority, 28
The result of the State elections thus far
, indicate that Buchanan will have ■ clear
working majority in the Senate, and that the
Democrats will have control of both houses
of tb# Thirty-fifth Congress.

"At laat he has permitted himself to be
put up as a candidate for the Presidency nf
the United Stales. I knew it long before you
diil, long before any bo.ly did, and there are
persons on this platfnrir. that knew what was
my conduct; that ae a father speaks to a
child, in a room by himself, at the hearth,
there my warning voice WHS against it.—
[Loud applause.] All advice, all my remon
strances, were useless ; for, in (he first place.
I, who had had A near and close view of the
American Presidents; I. who have seen nil
the Presidents in their chair, from Kladison
to the present day ; I who have seen them
all in their chair, and been intimate with
many of them; I, who have received from
, the lipi of many of them, while they were
silling there, the overflowing expressions
of their own heart; T, who have seen all this,
who have been near enough to see the inside
I view of them, did not happen lo havo that
■ high opinion of the enjoyment of that place
which a great many people have.
"It never appealed to me to be a place
that I would not wish to see any good man
in it in preference to myself or any of my
family. ( never saw the day in which I did
ndt prefer lo see any good man thele than
any one of my connection, and far more thaO
to be scon there myself. 1 could at least
have been tried for this place. I could have
been nominated for the place, on some ooca
sions. I put tl down a- soon as it was men
tioned to me, because I had no inclination
for the thing myself. I knew goad men whom
I preferred to myself, and, therefore, made
way for those (.ood men. I have never seen
the t.ime, from Mr. Madison's administration
to the present one, in which these were nol
my views. It was, therefore, repugnant lo
my feelings to see him become a candidate,
even if he was on national views;
but knowing fto n the beginning—knowing
from the first that Mr. Fremont was to ba the
candidate of a sectional pa'ty, I told trim
! from tha beginning that it was impossible
j that I conhl support any such nomination,
j [Cheers ]
j "No matter vhat came, he mils! he na
j lionet-—ho muat havo o vision that could took

I viding line—he must be on one side or the
I other of a dividing line—lie must be national
i or I cannot only nnt support him, but I must
1 take ground publicly against him. All this
; was said many months, almost half a year
| before the public knew he was a candidate,
! and from this I have nnver departed."
I that 400 persons, in Connecticut,weredepriv
| ed of their vute this month, by the new con-
I aiitutional provision requiring that they
| should know how to read and write, in order
| to vote. Connecticut is the first state that tiaa
■ made an attempt to disfranchise a citizen.—
| It is desirable that every man should possess
i hose uitls lo knowlage, reading and w tiling,
but we vhould nol fall into the error of mis
takerng the mere instrumentalities for intelli
gence itself. A man may know hew to
think correctly, who know nothing at alt of
reading aud writing, and sorne that can do
both the latter have no original thinking
power. The latter are less capable of exer.
citing the right of suffrage intelligently, than
the man who possesses natural mother wit,
without any assistance from reading. An
aristocracy founded upon schoolastio attain
ments may be bet ter than one based upon
properly, but an aristocracy of any kind in a
represeut.rive republic, established ou the
. principle of equal political rights, Is not very
I consistent, nor very democratic.

of St. James, by hie confidential friends, coo
vey the important intelligence that be has
