This correction gives Chase in the neighborhood of 2000 ma- jorHy. . V- The "Statesman" and the Monroe Vote : -The vote cast in MoMroe county at the laie election was small, very small, and it U a. mntter of regret, just as mortifying to pursuits here as at Columbus, or any other place. lit view of - the importance of a largevote, however, we are perfectly . wily ling that the Statesman should scold about it, tut d even lay a large share of tie blame for the defeat of the ticket on our county This much we could submit to .with hu raility; but it is possible to carry the thing too far. -i ' ':--' -rin trearly every number of the daily Stateimantor hv last few days, and some times two or three times in the same nam ler, Monroe county has either been directly or indirectly censured for her small vote In its issue of the 20th its remarks are ex ceedingly severe." , ' la regard to this we are like a certain gentleman who was boarding with a very economical hostess. ' Every day at every meal 'she had liver, and no other meat. After a long time she observed .that he did not eat liver as ujual. , She remark edto himi .11 : . :1 "Mr. Smith you don't appear to ' be very fond of liver." : ; 1 ."Uhyes," he replied, UL like it very well for fifty, or sixty times, but I can say I like it for a steady diet." ' ; We are willing for the Stmttiman to in dulge its scolding propensity hulf a dozen times, .but we are getting tired of it. - Seriously the small rote in this county is a matter of regret, more than a matter to be .censured.- " We feel perfectly safe in saying' that for the people of this conn ty to hare cast , a, thousand more rotes would have involved a loss often thousand dollars; and we dont believe there " is county in the State that would hare done better under such circumstances, : j The Republicans did not cast mare than about one third of their usual rote,' so it mar easily be 6een that the cause which kept the people from the pells was gener al, and not confined to the Democrats. - Our voUi is larger in proportion to the whole than theirs, which i3 dne to tha strong and continued efforts of the Dem ocrats to induce a large rote of their par ty. ; If any one thinks there was lack .0 dilligence here he is very much mistaken The cause was a very different one. - ri The election came just as the people were harvesting a very hcory crop of to bacco. The crop was remarkably late in maturing, and a: frost was nightly expect ed,' the slightest touch of which would ruin every leaf that was n6t 'gathered in. For weeks many persons all over the county had been, laboring night and, day to save their summer's labor, and it would not be expected that tbey would all abandon their fields to attend an election in which1 the people de not feel so: deeply interested as do the politicians, j , : r. -,. ; r It is very, easy for persons in a city, who are but a few hundred yards from the polls, toopen their eyes in astonishment at a small rote in rural districts,' where to walk six' or eight miles and back is to loose the day, and to ride is to stop their plough or wagon. .r. And it is very easy to complain and scold without knowing or caring for any plea in justification." - ' . 1 ,-IIcge rOTATo.r-Mr, M; G.

Although the rote on the amendments to the constitution is very small, the opposi tion to them throurht the State is quite insignificant; and they are adopted by a rery large, majority. ' ; 1' From the Statesman. . The Fall Election. . ' The more able and penetrating of the Re publican papers of the. country clearly perceive, that the elections recently held have rirtually destroyed the Republican party. The New -York Times, after ac knowledging that the Republican party is for the time extinguished in Pennsylva nia and rirtually defeated in Ohio, "where it was overwhelmingly strong," goeson to predict a greatly diminished rote next month in New York. -. , - ; i ; The truth is, that the party never had any thing to trade npon but . the Kansas question, and nothing could be realized upon that except by misrepresenting the position of the democracy in the States, and exciting outbreak and anarchy in the Territory. This haring been settled, un der the Democratic principle of non-inter vention, by the people of Kansas, the Re publicans find themselves utterly at a loss for the means of assailing the Democracy, the great reliable, stable, national party of the country. - The Time's , confesses the fact in the following paragraph: "An attack of fever is always, followed by a reaction.; , It never leaves the system precisely as it found. it. The analogy holds in regard to politics.. A period of excitement is always followed by a period of indifference. : It is impossible to keep the public mind always in a condition; of fervid and roused attention. Now and then it may be excited to such a state, which however, is always followed by one of inattention to- public affairs. ; It is not more than once in eight years that the country is convulsed eren by a Presiden tial contest - 1832, 1840, 1848, -and 1856 the canvass was one of tremendous heat and public passion: at every other election it has : been -comparitirely . tame and spiritless.'! :- ;;f . ;- - These excitements are always favorable to. the opposition, and it is only when they .have occurred, that the Democracy have been defeated.. The great majority of the people of the whole country, in or dinary times, belong to the Democratic Party ; and ifjiothing.nnusual effects the canvass, if no great conflict of principle or of administration breaks in upon the reg ular cause -of party action, .the Democrats are always victorious. ' In 1 840, the new financial experiments of the Government, the newly developed crruptionjn the ad ministration of public affairs,. d the com- mercial and pecuniary distress which per- vaaea me wuoie country, aroused a whirl wind of public feeling which swept the De mocracy out of power. In 1 848 the same public excitement was aroused by the proposal to carry Slavery into the new Territories, and in 185 6. the struggle between Slavery and Freedomin Kansas and at Washington. exasperated by vio lence and bloodshed at both poiuts, roused the resentment of the people of the whole JNorth, and gave us the first expe rience of a sectional contest between the North and South. ' It wa3 by far the sharpest and 'most formidable struggle wnich political parties in this country have ever waged: and its very heat and rehe mence were proofs that it could not ini mediately occur again." "The reaction of 1856 is seen in the elections of 1851: and the Republican rarty -which profited most by the excite ment then loses most by the reaction now, It has lost ground largely everywhere. In Pennsylvania it is forthetime almost extin guished. In Ohio, where it was over whelmingly strong last year, it is virtually defeated now. In the other Western States where elections have been held, it has safiered greatly, and in this State next month it will also show a greatly diminish ed rote. The same causes which have operated in Pennsylvania and Ohio, will also operate here, and although it seems improbable that the very large Republi can majority of last Fall should be oyer come, it 13 certain mat it will be very greatly impaired." Ebony Voting at Oberlin A Scene at the Polls. Oberlin precinct as every body knows is black with Republicanism, and real black Republicans. The Professors and Preach ers belonging to the Institution, general ly open the polls with prayer and they have a pious time polling ebony rotes- ueuerai jj , wno lives by, and who is an unterrified Democrat, generally makes himself very frequent . on election days,, and, although not much of a pray ing man, is decidedly social with the Preachers and Professors. , At the last election, scores of the black est Africans that ever crossed the sea vo ted under the protection of these Priests, in defiance of the law and in the face of Democratic protests, and they all voted for.

" The Official majority of the Democratic candidate in the Montgomery and Preble Uistnct, ror the Senate, is eighty-nine In the Stark and Carroll District the Co lumbus Journal claims the election of the Black-Republican;- Whether this is in consequence of the disfranchisement of Democratic town in Stark county, giving over two hundred majority, or not, we do not know. If the latter, the Senate wil without doubt, award the seat to a Dem ocrat, as it would be an outrage to allow a technicality ! to defeat the will of the people.' - If he is defeated, the .Senate will stand twenty Democrats - to fifteen Black-Republicans; in the House, the Democrats hare elected one in Morgan county and one In Wyandot and Hardin, which we did not ' include in our table. The next Legislature will then stand as follows: "' ;" Democrats. Black Republicans. Senate - " 20 -:-y: 15 House ; .: 60 : : ' ' V" 80 ' ';-?--. 62 ; democratic majority on' joint ballot, eighteen.
