Ia this county matters passed off as qui
etly as at any. former period, but, we are
aorry to own that the American Party al.
lowed herself to be defoatodby horcerlain
ties of success, by majorities ranging from
100 to 200 voles. We regret this, but
our party can blame no one but them
selves. Truo, we bad a few Traitohb to
tbe cause of Freedom, but in the main.tho
lack of energy on the part of many of our
country friends lost us some 00 votes by
abseenco from the polls. We are best, but
not conquered. Let us pick our flints nnd
try it again! We shall have more to say
on this subject in another number.
Oar Semttor. '
' By all advicos, it is now certain that
John T. Brasse, Esq., lias been elected
. Senator from this District by a majority
of at least 300. Our District may well be
proud of her Senator, notwithstanding the
low abuse of the Eagle. We now venture
the assertion that no man in the next Sen
ate will more truly represent his constitu
ency and the State at large.

The arduous and almost incessant lubors
of our workmen for the last month, to

Tickets, &c, for the campaign and elec
tion, compels us to issuo the "Gazette" in

we shall bo out again in full bloom.
The American Lust Night

joicings and such an ono as should glad
den tho heart of every true patriot. We
lrnvo not room to speak of it at length to
dny, but will notice nt length next week.
Some thirty vessels nra engaged in the
fruit Iraclo between New York and the
West Indios. A much larger ' trade in
fruits is carried on with ports in the Med
iterranean, which supply annually some
thing liko seventy or eighty cargoes prin
cipally oranges. Tho west Indian importa
tions last year are estimated as fol
lows: Seventy-five thousand bunches of ba
nanas from Baracoa, sold here nt from 81,
SS to 1,50 per bunch 893,750 to 112,
600; 2,000,000 Barncoa cocoa-nuts sold
nt from 1325 to 830 per hundred $500,-
000 to 600,000: 20 cargoes pineapples
from Mutnnzas and Havana averaging 80,
000 dozen per cargo, sold at from $8 to
912 per hundrod 8120,000 to 192,000;
$0,000 dozen St. Bart, pines, sold at from
87,50 to $8 per 100910,000 to 819,000;
200,000 dozen from the Bahama Islands
$15,000 to 10,000; 10 cargoes of Huvan
mt oranges, averaging 350,000, at 3 cents
each 810,500, have been received thus
far the present season, tho crop being more
abundant than at any time during the last
fifteen years. West Indian oranges ar
rive in October, and are most abundant in
January and February. . Bananas and
pineapples begin to arrive about the first of
1 . w
, April, and are most plentiful during the
succeeding three months. Cocoa-nuts ar
rive all- tho year round. Mediterranean
oranges, which come in boxes, nnd are
must extensively shipped to different parts
of the United States, begin to bo received
in January, but not extensively until April
or May.
' The above list comprisos but few of the
foreign fruits imported and these only
from the West Indies. A few minutes'
calculation will show the sum paid for tho
articles enumerated in ihe lint amount to
not loss than 8850,000. Tho total am
ount pnid for foreign fruit last year was
not loss than 820,000,000. ,

Elections so far as heard from up to 4 P.
M. It will be seen that Mr. Chase's ma
jority in Ohio cannot be far from 20,000,
while that of the remainder of the ticket
will run up to 40,000 or 60,000. This is
oeitainly one of the greatest triumphs of
tbe present campaign, and one that every
American may rejoice over. But let us
not let these triumphs relax our efforts,-
we bave much yet to gain, and it will re

Commercial Prosperity of the (.reeks.
Commerce and navigation which had
been given up to them, as mercenary oc
cupations, by the pride of the Ottomans,
had also concentrated in their hands the
whole wealth of the empire. Municipal
liberty, and the governments of towns and
islands by elective councils, chosen' from
among the respectivepopulations, and pay
ing only the tributes or exactions to the
pachas, constituted these islands and these
Greek provinces into a species of federa
tion, very apt to revolt against the common
oppressor, and to combine together in the
cause of freedom. Finally, the law which
only permitted the Ottoman armies to be
recruited from among the conquering race;
diminished that souroe from year to year,
and allowed the conquered race to increase
and multiply. All these causes together
had lessened the masters and magnified the
slaves so that the number of Christians' in
the empire Very much surpassed the num
ber of Mahometans. Tho Turks still reign
ed, it is true, but they were nothing more
than an armed aristocracy in the midst of
a disarmed multitude.- The Greeks, how
ever, had long felt their strength, and look
ed out for allies in Europe, to give them
the signal, the opportunity, and support.
They had found these natural allies in the
Russians, attached to them by two causes,
which did not require preconcerting to be
understood; identity of religion and com
munity of hatred against the lurks. Ihe
krst insurrection had been fomented and
sustained by a Russian fleet, in the Morea,
in 1790, under the reign of Catharine II.
Though it miscarried, in consequence of
the French revolution, which had recalled
the attention of the empress to the sido of
Germany, and had made her defer the
ambitious views of Russia on the side of
Asia, this insurrection in the Morea had
left sovenirs, hopes, and seeds of liberty,
in the minds of the Greeks, who reckoned
if not upon auxiliaries at least upon sym
pathy at Petersburg!). The triumph of
the Russians On the Danube, and the ar
rival of a Russian fleet, from the Black Sea,
before Constantinople, combined with an
insurrection in tho Pelopennesus and the
islands, would leave nothing for the Turks
but flight into Asia. The reign cf the
Russians over the Bosphorus would be the
reign of the Greeks, re-establishing the
empire of the East in its capital, so long u
surped by others. This idea, or this
dream kept hope alive in the Morea and
the islands. Greece was going on to make
the attempt, and Europe was going to as
sist her, but never did fatality, that ur
ges nations on to results which thoy see
the best nnd dread the most, exhibit itself
more distinctly in human affairs. Russia
once mistress of tho Bosphorus, Constan
tinople, and of Greece, tins was universal
monarchy over Europe, over Asin,nnd the
Mediterranean. But never mind, the cry
of freedom resounded upon the mountains
of Epirus, and Europe was about to echo
it, and to precipitate itself bodily, against
her own interest, down the declevity on
which hung the world. Religion was to
serve as a protext for liberty; and while
modern philosophy was sapping or refor
ming Christianity in Europe, European
1 iberalism was upholdi ng the cause of Chris
tianity in Greece, and preaching a crusade
in the name of the Revolution. Ilittory of

We publish the above resolutions with
peculiar pleasure, knowing all the parties
personally and professionally. The com
pliment is not only deserved, but reflects
the highest .credit on our Physicians and
the Doctor. We have known Dr. Ed
wards for more than fifteon years, and have
ever esteemed him not only a devoted nnd
well educated Physician, but a gentleman
of the warmest sympathies and a man of
the highest honor. i
, We shall miss you Doer. Tom, at the so
cial circle, when wearied with the cares
and labors of life, your joyous countenanoo
imparted happiness to all around; and we
shall miss theo more when affliction and
disease are upon us, and when skill, kind
ness and sympathy are our only gifts to
our families and friends (then shall wo
miss thee most;) but, we give you our
parting benediction: Go where you will,
the kindest sympathies of new friends can
never equal the attachments of your old
ones; and may Heaven's ehoicett bleating
rest upon you and your. . ,
Cuildrdh not oat in Paris. Sergeant
Talfourd.the eminent English Lawyer and
play-writer, says:
Every thing is gay in Pnris but child
hood. Old age is gay pleasantly so, ev
en when fantastically so and death itself
is tricked out in garlands, nnd "turned to
favor and to prettiness." '. Why then aro
tho children so joyless? It cannot be that
they are too harshly restrained.or ruled by
fear; for a cruel discipline is no part of
the French character, or the French edu
cational practice; on the contrary ,a French
boy soon becomes his ' own master, and
studies or lounges as he pleases. Is it
not that there are no fire-sides no homes?
It seems a fine independent thing for
a Parisian shopkeeper to dispense with tho
plague of domestio servants take, every
day, tbe freedom of the restaurant and
cafe and when he shuts up his shop,
leave it to take care of itself, while he
lounges, or dances, or smokes, or rends
the journal, or does all these in some pub
lic garden or, better than all, goes to tho
play.' But the pleasures and comforts of
children are of home growth, and require
a homo shelter. They are here only sad,
wearied, wondering spectators of the ga
ities of their parents, which are associated
with coquetry, gallantry, and feelings skin
to these, in which they do not participate;
and though some amends are made by an
initiation into their essences, and earlier
emulation of their symbols, still children,
as children, have no food for their affec
tion in the whirling kaleidoscope which
dazzles them. You would not find such n
set of care-worn, pale, tmhappy faces in
any charity schools in England, as you
may mark in n throng of wandering, dissi
pated boy in the garden of the Tuillaries.
