The despatch from Savannah in our paper to-day is, we believe, reliable. Florida ha3 gone for the democracy. That she will go the same way in November we entertain no doubt. INDIANA. The democrat have carried their State ticket by a large majority. They have also elected a large majority of the members of Congrea and Legisla ture. They beat both the Fremont and Fillmore parties fused in one. As each of those parties has an electoral ticket in the field, it is past all contin gency that the electoral vote of Indiana will be given to Buchanan. Illinois will go the same way. Connecticut has shown in her late elections that she is Bale for Buchanan. And these States with the South, eecure the election of Buchanan. But he ia f qually certain of several other States. PENNSYLVANIA. The news has been very conflicting, alternating one aide and the other, and raising or depressing the spirits of parties as the intelligence was favor able or unfavorable Thr know-nothings have been as eager to hear of the success of the black republicans as though Fremont was their open and avowed candidate, and have been as much de pressed at the reports unfavorable to his party as the democrats have been at hearing of the possi bility of the defeat of ihtir party. At the mo ment of putting our tri-weekly to press, we have no direct intelligence which leads us to doubt that we have carried the State. But the know -nothings claim to have received intelligence that their friends and allies, the black republicans, have car ried the State by from seven to ten thousand ma jority. This may or may not be so. A few hours will tell it At all events, Pennsylvania is absolutely certain lor Buchanan. The fusion which has been efTec ted in October cannot be made available in No vember. Buchanan is twenty thousand stronger in Pennsylvania than any local ticket. The result in Indiana shows that he will carry all the States west of Ohio. Michigan and Connecticut are safe for him. The South will give him a unanimous vote. And the old Keystone will give him an overwhelming majority. "We received the following dispatch yesterday morning. It is not as late a3 the know nothiDg news referred to above: PRIVATE DESPATCHES. Philadelphia , Oct, 15. Democratic majority for State ticket 10,000. Sixteen Congreesmou and Legislature. W. C. Patterson. THE LATEST. The following despatch reached us after writing the above, and it is the latest news in the city at the timo of putting our tii-weekly to press, at 5 o'clock, -p. m., Thursday. LouisviLLt, Octr. 16 Indiana Forty -three counties heard from. "Willard, democrat, 2,400 ahead. The black republicans have 3 Congress men, certain, the democrats probably ( two doubtful. Philadelphia, Oct 10 The republicans were less confident this morning, though claiming a small majority. The democrats claim 4,000 ma jority. The result depends upon official returns, reports are bo contradictory. Still Later. Tho following despatch was received at half past 5 o'clock, P. M : Philadelphia, Oct. 10. The democratic State Committee estimate tho .democratic majority at 4000. For still later news and good enough to make a man feel happy four years, see the big gun. SPEAKERS TO THE CONVENTION. We are happy to announce to our friends at a distance that the llon.'s A. II. Stephens, Robert Toombs, John E. Ward Bnd Judge Wright, of Georgia, Hon. L. P. Walker and Senator C. C. Clat, of Alabama, have accepted invitations to be present on the occasion of the ensuing Conven tion in this city. Er-Qov. Cobb, of Georgia, J. B. Clat, of Kentucky, Bnd a long list of distin guished speakers from abroad are confidently ex pected. Hod. James C. Jones and other old line whig speakers have consented to address the peo ple on tho occasion. t5T The know nothings ot Nashville were as much elated at the reported success of the black republicans in Pennsylvania yesterday as though I their own avowed candidate had Eucceeded. The Jact hould put all persons interested in slave pro perty or In the maintenance of our Institutions to thinking. It ehows that the know nothings hrie are entirely indifferent whether Fillmore or Fre mont succeeds. The su ccess of eithsr is their vic tory. This proves more than we have ever charged against them. The cordialsympathy of southern Fillmore men with northern Fremont men can no longer be denied. Of,r ftourse, all their talk ol uni ting here on Fillmore to beat Fremont, will here after pass as gammon, when their own party north unite on Fafeni0nt to beat Buchanan, and they praise the if operation. 6yTip,0 Patriot yesterday grievously complain ed thatiite democrats of Pensylvania had cheated Wfliack republicans! It expresses the hope, "Jifireover, that Mr. Buchanan cannot carry Penn Fejlvania. It is noticeable that the Patriot express es no hope that Fillmore can carry Pennsylvania. Its hope is that Mr. Buchanan can't get the State. And that, in our judgment, is tantamount to the hope that Fremont will get it. Democrats! this is tho hope of a paper which has been urging you to unite on Fillmore to beat Fremont I What do you think of it? It sees its own party in the North unite with Fremont to beat Buchanan, without remonstrance or com plaint And it thinks it would be a pretty thing lor Southern democrats to go for Fillmore to beat Fremont! Tsn't tho Patriot a nice guide to fol low? ' ma OLD MADRY. Yesterday was a glorious., day in Columbia. The democracy held a mas3 mceticg at which the" Hon. Ja'o O. Jonis was the principal sr e iker. A friend telegraphed us from Cchmbia yesterday as follows: ' Three thousand democrats in procession "not one-third of the crowd.'' THO'3 L. BRANSFORD, ESQ. This able and popular old line wh'g, in response to the frequent acd urgent solicitations of his friends iu Jackson county, has consented to ad dress them at their barbecue at Fiynn's L:ck on the 25th inn. A WORD FROM AN IMPARTIAL SOURCE. The Memphis Bulletin, an independent paper, whose editor is an. old line whig, and who, per BDtally, perfers Mr. Fillmore to either of the can didates, bat regards Mr. Buchanan's election as the only means of defeating Fremont, makes the following very jest comments on the dangerous strategy that is now going on in the Northern States between the Fillmore and Fremout leaders. It addreses itself to the sound sense and patriotism of every lover of the Union : Party Strategy An Adroit but Dangerous Movement. We have observed, for some weeks back, the strategetio movements of the American party, with a species of admiration for its bold ness and adroitness. It is one of those decisive manoeuvres, executedon the brink of battle, v? bich either makes or mareutterly. To make it clear to our readers, it is necessary to promise, that a vast amount of the strength of Mr. Buchanan and of the democratio party in this contest, rests upon the well-grounded belief that, backed by an unbroken national organization, he could more surely he' elected over Fremont, than Mr. Fillmore, the ranks of whose party had been so recently broken, in some parts of the Union, by local stampedes into the black republican camp. These considerations rallied to Mr. Buchanan vast numbers, many of whom would personally prefer Mr. Fillmore. This is especially so in the South, where the tendency of the conservatism not in intimate alliance with either party, has been, and is, certainly to the sup port of the democratic nominee as "the strongest man." The American supporters, of Mr. Fillmore have seen and felt this, and know that unless this unani mity of sentiment in the Southern States as to Buchanan's strength can be broken down, their favorite may Btand no chance, even to go into the House. Now for their plan of operations. A State elec tion comes off in Pennsylvania next Tuesday. It is given out that atremendous reaction is setting in the Free States, in favor of Fillmore, and that Bu chanan is losing ground. By an arrangement or understanding of soma sort with the eupporters of Fremont in that State, a union or fusion ticket is run singly in opposition to the democratic State ticket Heaven and earth will be moved to carry it; so that it may bo proclaimed that Mr. Bu chanan's own State has decided against him, and that therefore he will no longer do to depend upon as the rallying point to beat Fremont The cal culation is, that then, by a bold rush, and claim ing that Mr. Fillmore ia "the strongest man," a revolution may be effected in the Southern States which, if it does not carry Mr Fillmore in the elec toral Colleges, will at least throw him in the House, where his peculiar friends think he stands the best chance. This piece ofjstrategy is adroit, but dangerous, in a double sense. It is dangerous to the party which makes it, in that, if the iusicn ticket fails to carry in Pennsylvania by a very decisive majority, it will fir the public mind more firmly than ever that Mr. Buchanan is the man "to tie to" to beat Fremont, thug hoisting the engineer with his own petard: It is dangerous to that combined union of the conser vative, national elements of the country, in which alone there is any hope of the election of either Mr. Fillmore or Mr. Buchanan; for, even in the event of the success of the anti-Buchanan ticket in Pennsylvania by such a majority as would give the superficial observer reason to despair or his carrying the State in November, the timo is too short in which to marshal all the Southern States around the standard of Mr. Fillmore. He moat be sanguine, indeed, who belives that Arkansas, or Mississippi, or Alabama, will not, in any event, vote for the democratic nominee. In such a man oeuver in front of the enemy, the commander who make3it ought to be sure of his power to wheel every brigade and regiment into the new line of hattle." But "wo shall see what we shall see." If it were not for the momentous consequences which hang upon the result, we should watch the progress of these party tactics with the interest of mere curiosity. As it is, we shall observe their develop ment with anxious solicitude. CONNECTICUT SAFE. The following, from the New Haven Register, shows bow safely we may calculated on the vote of Connecticut for Buchanan in November: Town klectiohsI Great Democratic Gains 1 1 A "Shriek" tor th Union and Constitution 1 11 The primary elections in most of the towns in this State took place on Monday; and the result ia' a very decided and substantial gain to the democ racy. It shadows forth tne election of the Bu chanan and Breckinridgo electoral ticket in No vember, by a triumphant majority. Put down Connecticut hereafter as sure tor BUCHANAN, THE CONSTITUTION AND THE UNION I Spread it abroad, and let it give new courage to the friends of the Union, through the length and breadth of the land. Maine fever is not epidemic and 88 the Philosopher Greely truly says, the black republicans must do something more than hurrah over Maine, or they are doomed to an ig nominious and overwhelming defeat. For the information of persons outside of Con necticut, it may bs well to observe that the Select men of the several towns chosen in the primary elections are the inspectors of election, as known in other States, not only for the Presidential elec tion in November, but for the ensuing year. The black republicans have made a secret and desperate effort to Becure the3e officers. The State has been stumped for the last month, by their most adroit speakers and electioneered; they have had mass meetings, &nd barbecues, and torchlight precessions, without i number; and after all, tbey have been gracefully but effectually laid out Ward Beecher has been frequently in requisition, and all the poli tical priesthood that he could influence have been instant in season and out of season, but to no pur pose. The movements of the arch demagogue have recoiled upon him and we believe, instead of injuring the cause of Buchanan, he has done us mush good. Let him oontinue as he has begun, through the present month, and up to the Presi dential vote, and Connecticut will be the banner State!' PUSH ON THE COLUMN, BOYS I This is only the beggining! Hurarh for "BUCK AND I BRECK," THE CONSTITUTION AND TBE. UNION! Connecticut will be a Breakwater to New Eng. land fanaticism! It may rush upon our bayonets, it cannot break our column 1 ) Vote in Pennsylvania. For the benefit of speculating politicians, we give below the vote f Pennsylvania, for 1855. .The contest was for Ca nal Commissioner. In 1855, as now, there was a fusion of all isn9 against the Democracy. Wo give tho entire result: Nicholson, (Fusion) 149,745 Williamson, (Republican) 7,220 Cleaver, (Native) 4.05G Henderson, (Whig) 2,293 Martin, (Know Nothing) G78 103,998 101.232 Plumer, (Democrat) Total majority against Democracy The total vote polled, 2,717 325,279 Freb Neoroh at the North. By the official report of the authorities of Canada for 1855, it ap pears that there is iu the Penitentiary 1 iu every 154 of the black population of that Province; 1 in every 890 of the Indian population, and 1 in eve ry 3CS4 of the white population. The free negroes therefore are sis times as criminal as the Indians, and twenty-four times as criminal as the whites. This speaks badly for the conduct of both whites and blacks; for doubtless It is ia great part owing to the degraded position assigned to the blacks by their white brethren. United Statxs Treasurer's Monthly State ment. The statement of the United States Treas urer for September ehows that the net amount subject to draft in the United States Treasury cn the 22d of September was $22,495,009 91, o which 801,058 23 was at Richmond, Ya.; $33, 174 98 at Norfolk, Va.; $1,000 16 at Wilmington, N. a; $3,103 17 at Nashville and $32,030 at Charlotte, N. C. P THE POSITION Off. SENATOR BELL, OFTENNjf . "The Richmond Enquirer says that letteis from Washington ducouecs it cs a fact that tbe black republiaans, in. their flush confiden ce of succes?, begin already to select a cabinet, and the one carved out as most generally received it: State De partment, Spta'ter Bank;; Trtasury, John Bell of Tennessee; Interior, John Minor Bott3 of Virginia; War Department, J. Watson Webb, of New York; -Navy, 'Henry Winter Davis, of Maryland; Post' Master General, Fitz Henry Warren, of Iowa; Attorney General, Gov. Chase, of Ohio. This is seriouely the programme of a cabinet" The above item is copied,into the.New York Tri' hunt by Gbeelt, and commented on with much apparoct satisfaction. Greely does not question the accuracy of the report, Sana tor Bell having previously enlisted the warmest compliments from that paper. Greely, in his paper, says: "At all event this does not look very much like that proscription of the South and exclusion of slaveholders from office, about which tbe Richmond Enquirer and its affiliated prints have made such a rumpu3. Even the Commercial Advertiser of this city, which copies this paragraph with great gusto, must admit that three members of the cabi net ont of seven i3 a pretty fair allowance. Nor are the persons proposed, according to these Wash ington letters, to be selected, mere puppets, a9 is too often the case with the northern cabinet offi cers selected by southern Presidents. No6ody can dispute that with Bell, Botts, and Winter Davis in the cabinet, the slavetoldiog interest would be atronclv, B8well as respectably, represented; tho' the Richmond Enquirer certainly, and perhaps the Commercial Advertiser, would prefer to see Biooks and Herbert joint Secretaries of War, with String fellow or Atchison Secretary of the Interior, and perhaps Mayor Woodjat the head of the Treasury." Tbe aboro, taken in connection with the recent compliment payed to Senator Bell by Seward in his speech at Detroit, may be taken as confirma tory of previous reports that, in the event of Fre mont's election, Tennessse is tc famish a member of his cabinet Greely thinks that with Bell, Botts and Davis, "the slavehoIdiDg interest would be strongly rep resented." Greely may be sincere in this opinion, but we take it that the people of the South will not be likely to think as he does on this subject. It is hardly possible that any one who would give satisfaction to tho one wonld meet"theapproval of the other. This cordial understanding which seems to ex ist between our Senator and the Fremont party, may account somewhat for tho anxiety evinced by his organ in this city, the Banner, for tho triumph of tbe'black republicans in tho elections that havo recently como off in P ennsylvania and Indiana. Col. Bell is certainly a n adroit politician. He is not a carder who plays for excitement, but for suc cess. If Mr. Fillmore is successful in carrying Tennessee, Col. Bell having won the lead, may still continue to wear his Senatorial honors. If Fremont is successful in the general result, the Senator may be elevated to a position in the cab inet In no event, therefore, can he be materially damaged, except by the general success of the Democratic party. In that event, he becomes a lost mariner on a desolate t tone a wandering, for saken, desolate old man. In that desolation, Col Bell can have but little of the sympathy of the people of Tennessee, who have so often trusted him and whom ha has eo often deceived. For it is no longer to be disguised that liis fortunes are more kindly cared for by the enemies of the South than by her friends. FILLMORE STATE ELECTOR OUT FOR BUCHANAN. From the following card, which we cb'p from the Clarkesville Tobacco Plant, it will be Been that Henry Wood, C3q., lately appointed Fillmore elec tor for the Petersburg Vadistrict, has patriotically resigned his post and come out strongly for Bu chanan. Read his reasons. They are the same that have influenced thousands of old whigs at tbe South to unite with the democratio party in the present contest Mr. Wood, it is said, intends tak ing an active part in the canvass: Clarkesville September 29, 1854. Dear Sir: Your letter of the 24 instant inviting mc to meet in discussion the Hon. Wm. O. Goods at your next court came to hand last evening. I hasten gratefully to acknowledge the compliment it implies, and to express my thankfulness for the honor done me by t It a Central Committee at Richmond and the late convention at Petersburg in appointing me Fillmore elector for this district So soon as information of my appointment wa3 official ly given to mo by Col. R. O. Britton and others, committeefor thatjpurpose, I wrote to them declin ing to accept the office which they tendered; that whilst my long cherished politcal principles had un der gone no material modification or change, yet the change of circumstances and parties rendered it necessary, in order to maintain those principles, that I should act in the present canvass with the southern party which supports Mr. Buchanan for the presidency. The great issue before the country is between free-soilism on the one hand and demo cracy on the other. With this understanding, I hes itate not to declare for democracy. No man who loves tho Union, and knows anything of its value, will have the least difficulty iu such a contest. All party considerations will yield to tbe noble senti ment of patriotism, and the affiliation becomes easy. All admit that there should be no division amongst us iu it.e present crisis, and all know that division exists. How shall it be healed, and we of the South be brought to act inooncert? thus pre- sentinc to the enemies of our country a mighty host, animated by the same spirit of freedom and love of liberty, whose moral power must bo felt and acknowledged throughout the land. Surely tho weaker party ought not to exact compliance of the stronger. Then the problem is solved, and there is nothing lett tor us in tne Soutn but to nrm ly,unitedly, and as one man, vote for Mr. Buchanan. i am, my dear sir, witn very great respect, your obedient servant, Henry wood. Travis H. Erria, Esq. From (Ac Ifathtngtm Ution. A SIGNIFICANT FACT. The single fact stated in the following despatch that whilst the Fillmore procession was passing Independence Square, Philadelphia, where the Fremonters were holding their meeting, "the two masses joined in dieering he Uuion ticktl' diesi pates the idie stories which charge that the Bu chanan and Fillmore men are arranging a combi nation of theif forces: "Philadelphia, October 9. The while citiy is a scene of excitemnet to-night, each ot tne three great political parties holding mass meetings the republicans in independence square, tne iriena ot Mr. Fillmore in Central Square, and the Democrats at the comer of Second and Dock streets. The republican meeting is very large, and the speakers are holding forth from four stands. While tho speaking was going on the Fillmore procession passed tbe square, where the two masses joined in cheering tbe Union ticket." No stronger proof of a cordial sympathy between know-nothings and black republicans could be fur nished, unless it is found in the fact that the know-nothings are giving their hearty support to a State ticket in which they know that black re publicanism predominates. That the sucess of this ticket would oe a e remoni viciury re suuwh to the know-nothings who support it. It is absurd for men to support such a ticket and pretend to ba friend3 of Fillmore. Washington Union. A Nioqer Military Company at Nkwport. The Newport correspondent of tho Baltimore Sun, in a letter to that paper under date of the 5th inst, after mentioning the visit made to that port by the United State3 practice ship Plymouth, has the following: "Tho Plymouth i3 not the only strange visitor we have had within the last fonr days, for yester day a steamer from Providence brought to our city an organized and armed military company composed entirely of negroes, headed by a band of white musicians. This is something new, that an armed company of this character has been al lowed in our midst, and tho day is rolling around when we shall have cause to regret it. I learn, also, that this "turn out" was to celebrate the an niversary of the insurrection of the blacks at Hay ti, when the whole white population was massa cred or had to fly for their lives. What are we coming to? Well may our southern brethren be aroused when such things are sanctioned and en couraged by the abolition portion of the north." Goiko the Rounds. The names of the abolition Arms who signed the call for the Banks meeting in New York are going tbe rounds of the South era press. FREMONT TO -SB WITHDRAWN. The pub'.ls mindiabaing prepared, by leading. -Fremont papers, for the withdrawal of FremoBt in case tho black republicans and Fillmoreitea can not fuse in Pennsylvania. The Philadelphia flbtlh' American boldly takes the ground that in view of the division which exists between the forces opposed to the democracy, it mayyet .be necessary to drop Fremont and take up another candidate: " It seems to be clear to every intelligent obser ver that while those elements are distracted be tween divided preferences for the Preaidecoy, sad cannot be harmonized upon one of the candidates named, the success of the democratic candidate is inevitable. Nothing short of infatuation can form a different estimate of the probability, so soon to' be verified, unless there bo a better concentration of opinion than now exists.' ONE OF WASHINGTON "8 VOTERS. The Van Wert Constitution says : "At the recnt democratic meeting at Waynes field, Auglaise county, John B idling, a so'dier of the revolution, presided. Mr. Bidling is one hun dred and three years old, gave his first vote for Washington, and his voted for every democratic President since, and intends, if his life is spared, to vote for James Buchanan in November. The henest veteran knows the cost and the value of this Union; his love for it has been habitual for more than three-fourths of a century; and now that he is old, he will not depart from his patriotic regard for that constitution and Union under which his country has become great, prosperous and happy." Worth Mention. The National Intelligencer, in noticing the recent decease of CoL Andrew Joyner, of Halifax, North Carolina, says: "We maybe permitted to mention, in attestation to the excellence of his character, that, at the time of hu death, he had been a continuous and punctual pay ing subscriber to the National Intelligencer .for fifty-one years." Sharp Shootino. Ths Utica Herald calls upon its brother supporters of Fremont "To strike every Ijreacd sound hU fame." The New York Bay Book infers that if they really intend to "strike every liar' among them, they will have a Kilkenny fight of it. x From an article in the Montgomery Mail, wo learn that travelers for Mobile, New Orleans and other placea further South, have accumulated there in such quantities that they cannot get passage down the river, and some have been obliged to take the back track and go round by Nashville. A Grand Mass MeetiDg of the Democrats of Memphis and the vicinity is to take place on the 28th and 29th inst. What a Stomach! In ono year New York city eats 185,000 oxen, 12,000 cows, 550,000 sheep and lambs, 40,000 calves, and 280,000 swine. If arranged seven abreast, they would make a pre cession two miles long. Prentice has given up the fight, and is al ready beginning to predict what Buchanan's ad ministration will do. He says, speaking of tho South: "Tney have wielded the Pierce administration to their purposes at will, and they will infallibly wield the Buchanan administration as supremely. Baroain and Corruption. A despatch in the N. Y. Herald, which may be regarded aa official, says that the fusion between the Fremont men and Fillmoreites on the electoral ticket, wUl be effec ted in Pennsylvania. The utmost good will, says tho Herald's informant, prevails on both tides. Of course this means among the politicians. Whether the people will thus consent to be sold out by trafficers, remains to be sten. Hon. John Ewino, of Yincennes, Indiana, formerly an old line whig member of Congress, has announced his determination to support Bu chanan and Breckinridge. Dr. Zachary Merriwether, a member of the Alabama Legislature, died a few days ago. Two colored men, named Jenkins and Sangs- ton, are stumping Ohio for Fremont. There were 83 deaths in Boston last week, of which 16 were fioaconsumption. Yellow fever, cholera and small pox, prevail ed at Guayama, Porto Rico, on the 9th ult. Return or Miss Dix.

Banner learns that Mr. Bonibe, tbe candidate to represent the district of De Salsberry, in the pro vincial Legislature, has declared himself iu favor of annexation to tho United States. Emigration from Virginia. The Charlestown (Va.) Republican says, during the last two weeks, large numbers of emigrants have passed through that place. They intend to locate In Missouri, Iowa, Illinois and Kansas. Patents. Nearly 10,000 patents have been is sued in Washington since the 1st of January greater number than ever before issued iu tho same period. The tea plant has been successfully cultivated at Santa Cruz, in California, from seeds found last spring in a caddy purchased for consumption. Serenaue to Gov. Floyd.

This infamous rascal, who is the father of Know Nothingbm, is making Fre mont speeches. A Western editor wants to know whether the lawB recently enacted against carrying con cealed weapons apply to doctors who carry their pills In their pockets? The London limes still continues to contain articles favorable to Fremont and denunciatory of the democracy in the United States. This is to be expected.

Roane. An Incendiary Sheet. The Saturday Evening Post, a pretended literary journal, published in Philadelphia, and enjoying an extensive circulation in the South, is insidiously attempting to propagate abolition doctrines and to aid the cause of black republicanism generally. It teems with one sided statements in regard to Kansas, designed to bring the Southern settlers and their cause into disrepute and is engaged in republishing Mrs. Stowe'a new abolition novel. We would warn our citizens against this vile Bheet Its circulation in the South must be suppressed. Miisistippian. EST An attempt appears to have been made to get up a Fremont electoral ticket in Missouri; but from the tone of tbe papers in that State, it would appoar to be a somewhat hazardous pursuit of notoriety were any over ambitious men to attempt to canvass tbe State as Fremont electors.
