ELECTIONS ILLINOIS AND MICHIGAN.
The telegraph, with oce sliock, gave all the Con
gressmen in Illinois and Michigan to the whig-abo-tion-know-nothing
fusion, and "rebuked" Senator
Douglass, of Illinois, by announcing that tha Le
"gislature of that Stata was overwhelmingly against
him. The slow returns by mail show that all is
not lost in those States. In Michigan, one Nebras
ka democrat has been elected to Congress, and in
Illinois four, as we learn from the following:
CnicAOo, Nov. 11. Four Nebraska democrats
have been elected to Congress by large majorities.
The senate will be democratic. The house is doubt
ful General Shields will be his own successor in
the United States Senate. The following are the
names of the democratic candidates known to be
elected:
5th district. W. A. Richardson.
Gtli " Thomas L. Harris.
7th " James C. Allen.
gtfi " Samuel A. Marshall
The democracy of the country will cordially join
the y"ashgton Union in the following congratu
lations on this result:
Shall Illinois arrest TnE tide or Fanaticism!
If our telegraphic despatch from Chicago. Illinois.
dated at that city on the 11th of November, (and
receivea yosieruayj snouid prove to be true, (anil
on inquiry we find little reason to doubt it) it con
veys to the country intelligence of one of the most
remarkable triumphs of courage and energy in the
face of proscription and hatred of which wo have a
record m political annals. Our own opinion is, that
the general tacts ot tne despatch will be continued
by the final returns. Should th'u be so, Judge
Douglas will nave shown how laitmuUy ne pre
serves ins reputation as a oom anu persevering
champion ot Uie right, in tne lace ot tne most f orm
idable and powerful combinations; for it was in Ill
inois that his Nebraska bill was most foully mis
represented. And what rendered his adversaries
more confident and more unscrupulous was the
succession of defeats which, in other States, had
overtaken the democratic party each being repre
sented as an explicit and emphatic decision against
the Nebraska bill. No mattter how many isms
were accumulated to bring disaster upon the dem
ocracy in Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Indiana, the po
tential element was declared to be the Nebraska
bill. It mattered not how the know-nothings, who
really cared little for the Nebraska issue, feven
while electing abolition whigs to office,) hurried
tlieir legions against the democracy, every demo
cratic overthrow wa3 so much of a rebuke upon
Jndee Douglas and Nebraska. That the opponents
of that able and intrepid statesman should be eager
10 prostrate nun -at nome an men Know. JNOtn
thing has been left untried to accomplish this re
sult. In all the experience of the oldest politicians
nothing like the persecution called into action a-
gainst him has ever been witnessed. The abolition
and whig press of the North traduced him in lan
guage of unexampled falsehood and vulgarity. Hie
whole'chanicter, public and private, every incident
ot ins nie, ana even ins domestic relations, were in
turn made the pretexts for the most malignant and
the most ingenious slanders. In this bad game,
.fitly led by the New York Tribune, even decent
whig papers dm not hesitate to take part; and when
the gallant and fearlers senator from Illinois was in
terrupted and persecuted by an insane negro and
abolition mob in his own city of Chicago, the pecu
liar worshippers of "law and order" were loud in
praise of the turbulent rioters against the right of
American citizens to meet in public and discuss
their own affairs. It would, indeed, be a forcible
and eloquent comment upon this continued and in
satiable fystnm of revenge and of violence against
a just and out-spoken public man, if the tide of a
mistaken popular opinion could be reversed in the
State of Illinois. There would be a sort of provi
dential justice in the fact tlift the revolution a
gainst Judge Douglas and the democratic party
should be first arrested and turned back in Illinois
the State he has so long and so laboriously serv
ed, and so ondurmgly honored.
We shall rejoice to be able to chronicle such a re
sult not alone for the sake of Judge Douglas, but
also for the sake of the fearless Richardson, and his
compeers, Allen, Harris, and Marshall.
ARKANSAS U. S. SENATOR.
Wo learn from the Memphis Appeal that the elec
tion for United States Senator which came off be
fore the Arkansas Legislature now in session, re
sulted in the unanimous choice of the Hon. Robert
W. Johnson. This is a proud and "just recom
pense of reward" forability, energy and faithfulness,
and is such a manifestation ot conhdence and ap
probation as is seldom received by any public ser
vant, enabling Mr. Johnson to serve his generous
State still more efficiently and acceptably.
The information of this election was conveyed to
us in advance of the newspaper mail, by the oblig
ing Representative from Mississippi county :
Little Rock, Ark. Nov. 10, 1854.
Messrs. Editors Gentlemen: The election for TJ-
nited States Senator has just taken place. The
Hon. Robert W. Johnson received an unanimous
vote to fill the vacancy ocoasioned by the resigna
tion of Mr. Borland, and also an unanimous vote
lor the full term from the 4th of March next
Yours truly,

The Chicago Times announces the election of
Major Thomas L. Harris, (Democrat) to Congress
in Uio Springfield district The Times says: "It

Til B MASSACHUSETTS ELECTIONS.
Tho following is the result of the Congressional
elections in Massachusetts. Every member chosen
is a Know-nothing. Attached to their names we
givo their political principles :
1. Rev. Robert B. Hall, of Plymouth, Free
sou lug.
2. James Buffington, of Taunton, Freesoil Whig.
3. Win. a. Damrell, of isedham, freesoil.
4. Linius I. Comins, of Roxbury, Freosoil
Whig.
5. Anson Burlingame, of Cambridge, Freesoil.
C. Timothy Davis, of Gloucester, ireesoil Whig.
7. .Nathaniel 1'. .banks, dr., oi ttaitnom, free
sou.
8. Chancey L. Knapp, of Lowell, Freesoil
9. Alexander Do AVitt, of Worcester, Freesoil,
. 10. Rev. Mark Tafton, of Westueld, treesoil.
The Savannah Georgian says that Wilson, the
free soil nominco for Governor, withdrew from the
canvass, with the understanding (as was charged)
that his friends should support Gardner, the Know-
nothing candidate and in consideration thereof,
tho Know-nothings are to unite their forces in the
legislature with the Free soilers, and make Wilson
Senator of the United States. All of the candidates
for Congress have heretofore been acknowledged
freo soilers.
Whatever credit, then, we were disposed to give
the Know-nothings for defeating the Seward nomi
neo in New York, (when there was reason to be
lieve they had defeated him) they have forfeited by
the seW-hons which they have made in Massachu
setts. In tho latter state the very worst men run
ning, as lar as wo can judge of their characters,
nave been successful. Washburn, Jtb.e whig nomi-
nee ior uovernor, is far more conservative than
most or tho candidates whom the whigs of New
England have lately put up for office, Bishop, who
was supported by the democrats, had he been elect
ed, would have dono credit to the office. In tho
Congressional Districts, whatever difference there
was between tho whig and democratic candidates
and those of tho Know-nothings, on the slavery
question, was in favor of the former and against
tho latter.
What we some time since stated on the strength
of information then received, turns out to be true,
to wit : that the Massachusetts Freesoilers had cap
tured the Know-nothing lodges. Hence our friends
may learn how baseless is their hope that Know
noUiingism will overthrow Abolitionism. In all
the Northern States, save New York, the two seem
to be in harmonious co-operation. Let us beware

14 w .--
THE EXPULSION OF MB. 80ULK FROM FRANCE
Tho facts appear to be that Mr. Soule, tho Amer
ican Minister to Spain,, on his landing at Calais,
whence he came from London, was stopped byithe
police, and informed that he could not pass through ,
France on his return to Madrid, but must lake tho .
next steamer and leave the country. Mr. Soule
asked tho Commissary if he knew who ho was,
and was answered in the affirmative. The Minis
ter then desired to sea the orders he had received,
but this request was refused. Of course, Mr.
Soule was obliged to return to London, having.no
other alternative. While in Cahas, he was under
the surveillance of the police.
On his arrival in Xondon and the occurrence be
ing made known, it created considerable excite
ment in American circles. Mr. Buchanan gave the
subject special attention, and addressed Mr. Mason, ;
the American Minister at Pans, a spirited letter.
In the mean time, Mr. Mason called personally to
see the Secretary of Foreign Affairs, and demanded
to know why Mr. Soule had been forbidden to pass
through France on his way to Spain. Whereupon
the Secretary informed him that there were three
objections. First, The bad treatment of Mr. Dil
lon, the French Consul in San Francisco. Second
ly, Mr. Sanders' letter to the French people. Third
ly, The Cuba question.
Our readers will have no difficulty in understand
ing these positions; and wo have no doubt Mr.
Mason represented the facta in each case, in such a
manner, as would satisfy any person, except one
who was determined not to understand them. It will
bo remembered that the French government made
no objection to Mr. Soulc's passing through France
on hi3 way from Madrid to London, and there
fore, the refusal to allow him the same privileges
on his return, looks like an after-thought a sort of
trap into which to inveigle an unsuspecting man.
If Napoleon thinks this comports with the policy
of a wise government, he will find in the end that
he is mistaken. The American Government will
notice, in becoming terms, this insnlt to our Minis
ter. Of this, wo can entertain not the slightest
doubt What course Mr. Mason may adopt, until
instructed by the Government, is uncertain. Ho
may demand his passport and retire to London, and
in doing so he would be fully justified. It is possi
ble, however, that the French government will
make such an explanation as will induce him to re
main. The British Cabinet took early action upon
the subject, and wo would not be surprised if the
difficulty should be adjusted through its agency.
The following is an extract from the Washington
correspondent of the Philadelphia American. It
agrees with Mr. Gaillardet's statement that Mr.
Soule has not meddled with French politics :
Letters from Mr. Soule, brought by the Atlantic,
have been received here by the Government. He
states that neither by word, deed, letter, nor com
munication has he compromised himself, or in any
manner interfered with French affairs.
The editor of the New York Tribune says :
"Our habitual readers are quite aware we es
teemed the appointment of Mr. Soule, as Minister,
to Madrid, a most unwise one, and that we have
seen abundant reason since, to confirm our original
impression. But Mr. Soule's faults, whatever their
extent or character, are not such as should subject
him to discipline at the hands of Napoleon III, by
the grace of immeasurable perfidy and scoundrel
iim, Emperor of the French. Mr. Soule was never
hi3 subject, though he was formerly a Frenchman,
which nationality he has deliberately surrendered.
He is now an American citizen, and entitled to all
the rights of American citizenship, in France as
eleswhere. The London Times is assuming that
Louis Napoleon has a right to deal otherwise with
him than with a native born American, assumes
what our Government can never concede without
compromising the personal rights of Three Millions
of our People. This will never be done.
Let us not be misunderstood. We admit, with
out restriction, the rightof the French Government
to determine what foreigners shall or shall not be
admitted into France. But if the French despot
has a right to exclude, without a reason that he is
not ashamed to give, a representative of our gov
ernment fromFrance, we have a right at least
equally perfect to withdraw our Embassador from
Paris and request Napoleon's emissary here to take
himself out of the U. States. If the Emperor has
a right to do what he likes with his own. our Gov
ernment has an equal right on receiving a flagrant
insult, to decline further intercourse with the author
of that insult. There surely is nothing in the
character or career of Louis Napoleon which should
render familiarity with him particularly desira ble."
NEW ORLEANS RAIL ROAD.
We are informed that the Locomotives heretofore
ordered by this company, are daily looked for, hav
ing arrived in Charleston some six weeks since.
About seven miles of the track is laid and the whole
would ere this have been completed to Franklin,
the company having iron enough here for that pur
pose, had it not been for an oversight in sending
forward the bolts and chairs with which the rails
are fastened, and which we understand have been
in this river since May last Owing to the low
water the company have been unable to get them
to Nashville, and this has necessarily caused the
company to suspend laying down the track.
In this connexion we would call attention to the
sale of lots advertised by Lindsley & Crockett, to
take place adjoining the depot of this road, on
Thursday the 23d inst We are informed by Messrs.
L. & C. that they confidently expect that the Iron
Horse will do the puffing for them on that day, the
company having promised that if their engine has
arrived, they will put it in motion on that occa
sion. New York, Nov. 17, m. Several of the n antra

MONEY MATTERS IN CINCINNATI.
Cincinnati, Nov. 15 P. M.
The closing of the Mechanics' and Trader's Bank
has caused an increased excitement, and financial
matters are now worse than ever. Confidence is
decidedly weak, but no mercantile failures have oc
curred. Gold is eight per cent premium. There
is a large amount of money offering outside, in small
lots, by parties who are afraid to hold it; and more
relief is experienced in this way than when the
funds were in the hands of bankers.
The principal Banking houses having failed, we
are now near the bottom. The three heavv nrivate
Bankers that remain are above suspicion, and these,
with the Trust Company, are receiving nearly all
the business. The denosits btp Iipavv anil 11 fli.it

The notes of the Mechanics' and Traders' Bank are
received on deposit, the other
Bank being bound for their redemption.

PROGRESS OF ATTACK ATSEIiASTOI'Ob. !
Tho latest telegraphic intelligence which has been
recivedby the French and English Governments i3 I
dated from the Crimea on the 20th inst At tho time
the siege was going on favorably; tho botxbirdment
from the trenches of the)beairging armi s had bien
resumed on the 19th with effect; but tho enemy is
not reported to have sustained the los3of any essen
tial part of the (ortres3. From tho moment that it
was clearly ascertained that Sebastopol could not be
rtduced, even from the south side and by land, with
out the operations of a regularsiege, there i3 reason
to feel surprised at the length of these proceeding.!.
It is perfectly true that we had been led, in com
mon with all chief military authorities, to anticipate
an easier termination of this great enterprise, when
ouce the place should be invested on the south. The
hills above the town were supposed to command
the most important positions, and the accounts of
the most recent travellers, as well as the careful sur
veys undertaken by officers of our own fleet, had
failed to discover all the resources which the Rus
sians had prepared for resistance. Every fortified
town ha3 its weak points as well as its strong ones;
but, in the present instance, the jealous tnd secret
policy of the Russian Government had to a great
extent succeeded in withholding from our generals
a full knowledge of tho place they were about to
attack.
For instance, it has been found that the deep and
broad ravines which extend down to the harbor and
the dock yard in front of the British lines not only
increase the difficulty of driving our approaches and
parallels within a short range of the walls, bnt al
so present serious obstacles to an assault in that
quarter. Hence the principal reliance of the right
attack lies in the facility we have acquired for shell
ing the town with our heavy guns, while the at
tack on the garrison and the forts i3 brought more
nearly home on the other side. The French were
enabled to open their first parallel nearly three
hundred yards nearer to the town than our ad
vanced lines, and below the stony surface they
found a layer of clay serviceable for the purpose of
entrenchments. Their position is therefore more
favorable for the purpose of an assault than that of
the British army; and it will probably be tound
that while our troops are making a powerful diver
sion to the east, the decisive attack will be begun
on the western extremity of the lines. General
Canrobert has succeeded, with the assistance of the
French navy, in erecting a strong redoubt on the
extreme left of the position, which has been armed
with no less than five batteries, mounting in all 5G
euns. Many of these pieces areot the largest cali
bre, and have' been taken out of ships of the line for
the purpose. This work has the double advantage
of affording an effectual shelter to the .trench army,
in the event of a strong sortie of the garrison, while,
on the other hand, seme of these batteries are so
placed as to command the western forts and out
works of Sebastopol. It was, no doubt, against
this work that the sortie of '.he garrison was di
rected which is mentioned by Prince Menschikoff,
in his dispatch of the 23d, but we must wait for a
better authority than that of the Russian Command
er in Chief before we credit the assertion that elev
en French mocters and eight guns were spiked by
the Russians on this occasion.
On tho Russian forts, which are situated nearest
to the sea the maritime attack of the li th of Oct,
was made, and apparently with succeess; but we
still await, with exteme interest, the particulars of
this engagement, which is the hrst great teat ot
arms performed by the Black Sea fleet. Without
forcing this line of sunken vessels and the double
boom which obstruct the entrance of the harbor,
there is no doubt that our vessels could come in
sufficiently near to Fort Constantine on the north
side, and to the Quarantine Fort on the other, to
teat the walls ot those works by a very severe lire.
The Moniteur states, and the same intelligence is
transmitted in several forms from Vienna, that the
north battery was destroyed by the fire of the
English ships, and the south battery silenced by
that ot the J rench. This termination ot the attack
would account for the fact that it was not resumed
on the following day, and we may suppose that
the ships had accomplished all they could under
take at that moment, without forcing the entrance
of the port Admiral Lyons and the Agamemnon
were, as we had confidently anticipaied, iu their
place on this occasion; and the Retribution, unde
the command of Capt Drummond, has on this, as
on all other occasions, shown her aptitude for every
description of service. We have reason to believe
that seven ships of the allied squadron tookpartin
this attack; the French Admiral's ship, the Villede
Paris, was one of them, and we trust that Admiral
Duudas was equally zealous in the defence of the
honor of his flag.
The public allusion which the Emperor Louis
Napoleon has recently made, in his letter of condo
lence to Madame de St Arnaud, to the '-timid
counsels" which at one time threatened to suspend
the great enterprise in which we are now engaged,
removes in some degree that reserve which had
hitherto been maintained on this delicate subject
We cannot doubt that, sooner or later, the facts will
be entirely ascertained and generally known, and
that every one concerned in these memorableevents
will go down to history with his appropriate badge
of caution or of valor. But since this taunt ha3
been thrown out by no less a personage than the
Emperor of tho French, and it may for a time ap
pear to reflect on the gallantry and well deserved
honors of the leaders of this expedition, we hasten
to add that no one acquainted with the facts can
for an instant intend to insinuate that the slightest
want of resolution was at any moment discemable
in the conduct of Lord Rajlan or of Admiral Lyons,
of General Canrobert, or of Admiral Bruat.
Throughout the whole course of the campaign tho
conduct of these eminent commanders has been in
every respect worthy of their position and of the
flags under which they serve, and the progress of
the enterprise is unquetionably due to their energy.
If others faltered under weight of responsibility or
the magnitude of the expedition, we believe that I
they acted up to the measure of their judgment and
J ... r o"c"1'Q"u
caiacity.
No one knows better than the Emperor of the
French that it was his own Cabinet, and among
his own military advisers, that the expedition to
the Crimera had to encounter the largest amount of
opposition ana adverse criticism; font was mainly
: . . i i i . , i ,.
iu uousequence 01 iuu cunuueni anu uuDenuing res
olution of Louis .Napoleon himself that these objtc
tions are overcome, and the proposal to operate
against the stronghold of Russia at Sebastopol car
ried into ellect. Vt e think the nrmness displayed
by the Emperor on this point does the highest
honor to his judgements ami his courage, and we
have never ceased to give oflr strenuous support to
the same opinion; Out it is not less important that
the brave men who have most powerfully contnbut
ed to conduct this vast expedition to the walls of
bebastopol, and who will shortly, we trust, rean
the glorious reward of their exertions, should not
be contounded with those whose "timid counsels
might have postponed the attack.
Hog-Killing I'kices. Tho receipts of hogs
continue very light, and none of the packers have
any nogs leu over alter the day s killing. The pro
duct this season will be much less than that of the
last, the estimate of several being 200.000 hog3.
while others incline to tho belief that the number
will be fully 300,000 head. There appears to be
some competition among the packers, and heavy
hogs will readily command 4 A cents net We hear
ol sales of 450 hogs, to average 150 lbs., at $4 25
Det; also sales ol several small lots at 3 cents gro-a,
ana -1$ cents net; and a lot ol iUO head at S3 87,
irom uienooKs.
By private despatches from Cincinnati, last
evening, we learn that the money market is un
settled. Prices of hogs were ranging from $3 50 to
?4; lard at 8J cents; and green hams at C cents.
Our regular despatches report sales of 900 head at
$3 75 to 4. These rates are far below the prices
paia in mis city.
At Canville, Boyle county, and at Russellville.
Logan county, at the last accounts, good fat hogs
werecommanding4 cents net. In connection with
the prices of hogs, we will incidentally lemark that
a sale ol 10 bbls ot old corn was made in the city
yesterday at SO cents per bushel, to go to Shelby
county, to be fed to hogs.
Atkinson & Co., yesterday killed 1,500 hogs at
their hojse, the biggest day s work this season.
At Hull, Hunt & Co's mammoth establishment, up
to last evening, 9,870 hogs have been slaughtered;
and the new bouse of Owsley, Kinnard & Co. have
killed about 9,000 head.
Several of the hog drovers now in the city have

SPECIAL NOTICES.
Dr. JU'Irfine's celebrated VERMIFUGE and LIVER
PILLS.
Z3J A singular combination, but very effectual, as tho
following will show:
New Yoek, Nov. 20, 1S52.
Knowing, from experience, the valuable qualities of Dr
M'Lane's Vermifuge and Liver Pills, I have for some time
back considered it my duty, and made it my business, to
make those articles known wherever 1 went among my
friends. A short time ago I became acquainted with the
case of a young girl, who seemed to be troubled with worms
and liver complaint at the same time, and bad been suffer
ing for some two months. Through my persuasion she
purchased one bottle of Dr. M'Lane's Vermifuge, and one
box of Liver Pills, which she took according to directions.
The result was, she passed a large quantity of worms, and
thinks that one box more of the Pills will restore her to
perfect health. Her name and residence can be learned by
calling.on E ii Theall, Druggist, corner of Butger and
Monroe streets.
P S Dr M.'Lane's celebrated Vermifuge and Liver Pills
can both be obtained at any of the respectable Drug
Stores in this city.
TS7 Purchaserswillpleasebecarefultoaskfor Dr. M'
LANE'S Celebrated Liver Pills, and take none else. There
ore other Pills, purporting to be Liver Pills, now before the
public. Dr. M'Lane's Liver Pills, also his Celebrated
Vermifuge, can now be had at all respectable Drug
Stores in the United Slates and Canada. novS 1 w
t3f PORE AND UNADULTERATED ARTICLES,
carefully selected, alone enter into the composition of
STABLER "Good Medicines." This, with the careful
and scientific manner in which they are compounded, is
doubtless a great causa of the unexampled success which
STABLER'S ANODYNE CHERRY EXPECTORANT has
had in the remedying of such diseases as Coughs, Colds,
Sore Throat, Asthma, Croup, 4c. The DIARRIICEA COR
DIAL also has been very successful in those painful and
dangerous diseases of the bowels, which sometimes prove
so fatal. They are both used and highly recommended by
a large number of physicians and others, of the highest
standing and have proved fully worthy of their encomiums.
You are advised to make trial of these articles, should you
need tlieir aid, and mark their beneficial effects.
See descriptive pamphlets, to be had gratis ot the
agents. Price, only 50 cents per bottle, or six bottles for
$2 50.

WHERKVKK THAT GREAT MEDICINE called II. G.
FAKKELL'S CKLEBKATEO ARABIAN LINIMENT, lias
been Introduced, it has performed the axon extraordinary
cures In the annals of medical history every body u ho uses
it once becomes Its warmest friend they nut unly keep it at.
ways on hand for tha benefit of lu timely use la cas ofemer
gency, but recommend it to alt tbelr friends. It lias been be
fore the public fur nearly ten years, and yet Is daily develop
ing new Tirtucs; many diseases have been cured by it, for
which the proprietor bad never recommended it; its magical
virtues spreads through tbe laud with the speed of lightning,
and many, very many poor invalids who supposed tbeir
days on this earth were fast drawing to a close, bare been by
a persevering uss of tbls invaluable Liniment HEALED, and
now rejeicein the blessings of health, and the enjoyment of
this beautiful world. Read this to believe and not to doubt.
enquire of your neighbors whom you know to have used It,
and they will tell you that no medicine ever discovered pos
seises the half of Its extraurdlnary healing powers. The
racking pains of rheumatism and neuralgia yield in afeiv
minutes to its powerfully anodyne properties. "The lame
are made to walk." Old eores, which have rendered the
subjects loathsome thing to heboid, are healed. The weak
and trembling, from deranged date of the nerves, by tbe use
of this Liniment, rejoice in tbe recovery of their former
health and strength. Many long standing affections of the
liver, lnngs and kidneys hare yielded to its uso aftortho va
rious remedies had failed. His very efficacious in curiug the
diseases of horses and cattle, such as sweeny, sprains, bruises,
swellings, cramps, lameness, dfy shoulder, splint, etc., and
if used in the beginning, never fails to slop the, further pro-
gress of fistula, poll-evil, ringbone and spavin.
Look out for Counterfeits I
The public are cautioned against another counterfeit,
which has lately made Its apuearance, called W. U. Purrell's
Arabian Liniment, tne most dangerous of all the counter
feits, because, his haviugthe name of Parrell. mauv willbuv

the spurious mixture has wrought its evil effects.
