One more struggle for the CONSTITUTION and the UNION 1 1 A noble victory crowned our efforts, in the October election, and a noble one awaits us at the November election, if EVERY MAN WILL DO HIS DUTY. We do not despair of carrying Ohio. The enemies of the union are disheartened and discouraged by the perfect certainty of defeat. They have seen their boasted majority of 100,000 in this State melt down to a plurality of probably, less than 20,000.: Pennsylvania, which they set dowu in their fuvor by 20,000 has given a majority of from 5,000 to 8,000 against Fremontism and Fillmpreism combined Indiana, where they said the Democratic votes- would be counted merely for form's sake, and where even the most sanguine Democrats had fears, has given her voice in favor of the Uuion by a mnjority of 1,000, against the combined opposition. Ohio ia not hopelessly lost. Our chan ces of gaining it are well worth our best efforts. TO THE POLLS then, and let us make our mightiest efforts to redeem Ohio from the taint of Disunion, and place her with Indianna and Pennsyl vania, on the side of the Constitution. TO THE POLLS, and let Monroe county still bear the Ban ner of the Ohio Democracy. TO THE POLLS, and cast your ballot "while your, votes ARE YET EQUAL TO THE VOTE OF A NE3RO. TO THE POLLS. and cast your ballots for the candidate of the Union, against the candidate of a sec tion, while tiiat Union still exists. TO THE POLLS and cast your votes for the calm, the wise, and experienced statesman, against the rash, fanatical and inexperienced adventu rer. : TO THE POLLS and cast your votes for religious tolera tion and equality of rights against persecu tion and proscription. every; vote cast for John C. Fremont gives counte nance to sectionalism, the parent of dis union. EVERY" VOTE cast for Millard Fillmore gives counte nance and power to the tyrant Know-noth- lrgisra. IF FREMONT IS ELECTED the first step is taken towards a dissolution of the Union, and sectionalism triumphant, the end may be calamities which would "turn old history pale." IF FREMONT IS ELECTED the despots of Europe would shoit with joy that self-government was a failure. IF FREMONT IS ELECTED another rivet is fastened upon the chains of the struggling and prostrate people oT the old world, and nnolher scourge is pla ced in the hands of their tyranical oppres sors. TURN OUT ... j- then, and strike for the Union agajus4i4s. enemies, for the Constitution againt its enemies, end for justice against its ene mies. TURN OUT and if this Union is dissevered and its dis cordant fragments engage in extermina ting butchery against each other, let not the sin be laid at your door. A common sense view or the . Presidential contest. Since the recent elections we have the ground work for making pretty . reliable calculations as to the result of the present contest for President. Let us first see. what Mr. Fremont's chances are: There ore 296 electoral votes in all, requiring 149 to constitute a ai8jority of the whole, and consequently that number to elect. Of these, there are in the . ". Northern States, 176 Southern States, 120 We may, therefo'-e, deduct 120 votes from Mr.Fremont.to start with, as no one will claim that he can get an electoral vote in the Slave States. The late election in Pennsylvania shows that there was a very large vote in that State,' and it may, therefore, be regarded as a tefct vote. . In this election the Dem ocrats claim a majority of 6000; the op position concede a majority of 8000. Now be it remembered that the Fusion between the Fillmore and Fremont par ties was perfect and complete. For fear ikat some of the Fillmore men might vote ;he Democratic ticket, their party was allowed two out of the three State officers to be elected. . Wili they be united in the next election? Iu our opinion it cannot change the re. (Suit whether they are or are not. Every reasonable m&n will concede that the Dem ocratic vote will be larger in that State fer Buchanan, than for the State officers. Pennsylvania being Buchanan's native State,'all jast hi6torywarraits ns in say ing his vote will be much larger than that for the Democratic State ticket at the late-! election. . Thus, if they should bo united ! there is not the least probability of Fre mont carrying any portion of the Electo ral Ticket. But will they be united? We give below the telegraphic despatches from the Convention thnt was called for the purpose of considering the propriety of forming a Union electoral ticket: PniLArELfHIA, Oct. 18. The following resolutions were passed by the Fillmore and Done'son Executive State Committee to-day by a voce of 20 tot. Resolved, That we deem it inexpedient to make any alteration in the Fillmore and Donrlson electoral ticket' in this State, and we are firmlv convinced that, anv in terference with it would be the means of sriving the State to Mr. Buchanan, instead of defeating him Resolved, That we decline to accept either of the propositions of the North A- rcerican State Central Committee, being satisfied that the electoral ticket already in the field is the only one on which 11 op posed to Buchanan can successfully unite, and pledging it to uncompromising oppo sition, and to the defeat, nuder and all circumstances, of his election. This action renders any further union of the Fremont and Fillmore parties in Pennsylvania very improbable. The origi nal Fillmore electoral ticket be will rnn Philadelphia, Oct., 21. Last night a meeting of the friends of Fremont and Fillmore was called at the Republican head quarters to select dele gates to the Ilarrisburgh convention to day, to form an electoral ticket. Much confusion prevailed. Resolutians were adopted repudiating the convention, in dorsing the Fillmore electoral ticket, and declaring all unity in opposition to it as aiders and abetters of Buchanan and Breck inridge Subsequently a Republican meeting elected delegates At the Fillmore head quarters a meeting resolved to stick to the Fillmore ticket, and repudiating the at tempt to hold a Union Convention at Har risburgh. nARRISBCRGH, Pa., Oct., 21. The nnion convention to form an anti- Buchanan ticket, assembled this afternoon. Most of the counties were represented. Despatches were received from Philadel phia, announcing the intention of the Americans to denounce and repudiate San derson's course, which created much ex citement and applause. The committee appointed on electoral ticket reoorted the tickets agreed npon by the Union Committee in Philadelphia. A Committee was appointed by the President and Charman to prepare an address, with authority to sign the names of the mem bers of the Convention. The closing scenes of the Convention were very excit ing and they adjourned with nine cheers for the ticket. Everything is confusion and desorder. Whether there is a union or not there can be no concerted action, no harmony. They will be defeated in Pennsylvania, beyond doubt, by a majority very much larger than at the late election. If this is true Fremont loses 27 more votes which leaves 149 barely enough to elect him. New look to Indiana, we have tri- nmphed by a majority, to quote the figures of the opposition, of 5000, over a union similar to that in Pennsylvania. The op position parties have each an electoral ticket in that State and there is not the remotest probability of a fusion, the Cin cinnati Times,, Fillmore paper says: Indiana. Willard's majority for Gov ernor will not fall much short of 8,000 votes. The scheme of fusion"has ex ploded in that State. The American par ty will neither combine, fuse nor surren der, but fight out the battle to the last, Indiana, therefore, may be set down as perfectlv certain for Buchanan. This takes 1 3 more votes from Fremont, and leaves him but 136. If we are not mistaken, the friends of Fremont never claimed California for him Take her four votes off and there is but 134 left, which is the utmost that any ra tional man can expect for Fremont. We confidently believe that Illinois and Con necticut will go against him, and that several of the other Northern States are doubtful; but as we have not so sure a basis for calculating them we leave them out of the question. As to Mr. Fillmore, we can hardly think seriously of his election. None of his friends claim that he has any chance un less the election goes to the House. It is pretty well known , that many of the people of the South would go for either Mr. Fillmore or Mr. Buchanan rather than let Fremont be elected. Whichever of the two first named, therefore is considered strongest in the. North. will receive the vote of the South. The Democrats have already carried Pennsylvania and Indiana, which with the vote of the South will elect him. Mr. Fillmore on the other hand has not only not been able to carry a North ern State, but in two of the most impor tant has been unable to defeat Mr. Buch anan, while joiaed with the bitterest ene mies of the South. This, in bur opinion determines Mr. Fillmore's chance, and re moves all probability of the election goiug into the, House. . -- We will conclude this article by quoting an extract from the New York Herald. The Herald as a leading Fremont paper is sccend to noae unless it be the Tribune If any one doubts the genuineness of the extract he can see it in the Herald by call nig at our office: The Fbesipentiax Question Ex act Condition op tiik Fight The late result in Pennsylvania, in con- necuou wmi me unexpected successor the democracy in Indiana,- indicate prettv clearly Selection of James Buchanan as i our next President, bv a handsome ma- jority of the Electoral Colleges, against j a popular majoiitv throughout tha coun-' trv of several hnudred thousand. A!-!f.ll readv has this popular majority been suf-1,,,.; c . .1 . ; 1 j ,. , , , opposition factions, cliq ies and raauagers, to justify this conclusion. Let us look i for a moment nt the lm-m. emi.liiion as- ' " - I pects and prospects of tin light. Pennsylvania has been thrown away. An auti-democralie majority there of 40, 000, a year ago, has suddenly vanished, through the tricks, treacheries and stupid quarrels and splits ameng the anti-democratic forces; aud from the same causes, Indiana, which was swept by the opposi tion from stem to stern in 1854, is now recovered in a single desperate charge of the alarmed democracy. Upou the heels of this Pennsylvania disaster we Gad the Fremont and Fillmore managing commit tees at Philadelphia wrangling and split ting up in the discussion of a joint stock electoral ticket for November the Fill moreites, with au infatuation amounting to lunacy, still clingiug to the delusion that they can afford to sacrifice Pennsyl vania and yet carry the election to the House. In New Jersey, the Fremont party ore still without an electoral ticket; in New York, W. II. Seward, Thurlow Weed and their associate managers of the Fremont campaign, have, in the meantime, left the cause of Fremont at home to take care of itself, while they have been off, here and there, aud everywhere, holding little caucuses resulting iu nothing but mischief In fact, we half smspect that the secret treachery of Seward, Weed and Company, have scarcely done less to pre vent a concentration of the opposition forces of the whole country upon Fremont, than the open, unscrupulous and malig nant hostility of the Fillmore Know No thing faction. The Journal can't get the Election New3. We sympathise with our friends of the Journal; they can't get the election news from Pennsylvania aud Indiana. The opposition papers through the country are in the same unfortunate situation. The last Journal even fails to give the result of this county. The following is the sum total of its election news. The Election. No official returns has as yet been received from this State, but we have enough, however, to justify the conclusion that the Republican party has triumphed over the tyrannical and des potic rule of the slave Democracy and Fillrnoreism combined, by a majority rang- iug between thirty and forty thousand. In Pennsylvania, both parties claim a small majority. It is likely we shall not know the result until we get the official account. The news from Indiana is very uncer tain. Reports say that the Democratic candidate for Governor is elected by about 5,000 majority. It is likely we shall kuow more about it soon. It says "the Republican parly ha3 tri umphed over the tyranical and despotic rule of the slave Democracv and Fillmore- ism combined, by a majority ranging be tween thirty and forty thousand." Now, father Shipley we will not complain of the snappish manner iu which you make the above statement, but, really, we didn't thiuk you were so far gone as to tell such a whopper. Thirty or forty thousand over the Democrats and Fillmore men combin ed! Oh Mr. Shipley! Mr. Lewis Shipley, we didn't think you would have said it, when you know your majority over the Democrats alone is not aay ways near thirty or forty thousand, much less when you add the Fillmore vote to it. We hope you will be in a better humor next week and correct that mistake(?) It is very naughty to tell stories He can't hear from Pennsylvania, and Indiana is very uncertain. Well, Mr. Shipley, you shall not be kept in suspense any longer. We will tell you the news. And, as your hearing has suddenly be come defective, we will shout it in your ear like the Statesman does to the State Journal. MONROE COUNTY GAVE 1531 DEMOCRATIC MAJORITY. Did you hear that? LAWRENCE IS ELECTED BY1280 MAJORITY. Did you hear that? OKEY IS ELECTED BY 330 MA JORITY. Did you hear that? PENNSYLVANIA AND INDI ANA HAVE BOTH GONE DEM OCRATIC. If you didn't hear that we would recom mend the use of a little accoustic oil. We hope you may at least be able to tell your readers the result in this county, in your next paper.

Nineteen young ladies appeared or the ground, two as a committee on behalf of the Democratic ladies of Center town ship to present the flag, and the sev enteen to represent the seventeen townships of this county, which gave au overwhel ming majority for the democracy at the rcceut election. After a few remarks by J. R Morris, returning the thanks of the Democracy for the Banner, and sev eral national airs from the Band, all par ties dispersed well pleased with the day's performance.

"The undersigned, members of the Re publican, the Fillmore and Donelson, and the North American Slate Executive Com mittee, have agreed, and now present to the people of Panusylvania, Union Electo ral Tickets, formed on the basis recom mended by the Union Central Committee. Twenty-six of the Electors nominated are common to each ticket. The name of John C.

The twenty-six electors arc pledged to cast the votes of the State in the E!ecto ral College for the respective candidates for the Presidency and Vice -Presidency, in exact proportion to the popular vote given to each ticket. This forms a com- i'l'-te uuion of the opposition streugih in Pennsylvania, while it enables every voter to ind cate his prrference of the Presiden- ' Hal candidates wiihout any compromise of It wo i!d be much more honorable for these men to abandon their sham John C.

These noble counties have done most gallantly at the late election, and have eclipsed all their former glories. They have taken their place at the head of the Democratic Column. Monroe, which gave last year only four hundred majority for Medill, is now Democratic by oue thou sand five hundred and twenty a gain of more than oue thousand. In FairGeld, where Medill had but two hundred last year, the majority for our State Ticket is nearly one thousand five hundred a gain of oue thousand three hundred. Had all the Democratic couuti$Bdone as well, Ohio would have been triumphantly redeemed ut this election. Monroe and Fairfield promise together four thousand for Bu chanan next month. Cin. Enquirer.
