It is amusing, now that the contest is over, to observe the last dying throes of the ".Great Amer ican Party." After having struck our last blow in the canvass, we took our position to one side and have been looking on with the interest and satisfaction of a boy who watches for the last wag of the dying serpent after its back is broken and its head crushed. We feel, as we observe it grow iag fainter and fainter, that with each expiring nutation the world grows better and better, With the extinguishment of this monster evil in our midst, which has so much distracted society for two vears D&st, there follows that retributive w justice, which, in some form or other, always pun- ihM a truiltv Dartv. The comciences of their ci leader?, under the lashings of popular contempt, are giving signs of singular distress. Let them writhe, and let the world look on and profit by the lesson. As might have been expected, the Louisville Journal dies hardest Its groans are loud and deep. Every muscle twitches as though each nervo was strung with lire. It goes down cursing in its despair, crying out : " The Union party has been routed 1 Sectionalism, and fraud, and chicanery, have triumphed I" Like the guilty culprit who curses the justice of the law upon the gallows, he says in his confessions over the result in Kentucky: ' Our friends strangely miscalculated their strength but, when sober judgment is permitted to exercise its influence, those who have been misled into ths support of ths sag-nicht candidate must shrink toith horror from the foul thing misnamed democracy that, in the madness of the hour, they have taken to their embrace!" The Memphis hnqulrer is more facetious, but hardly less agonizing than the Journal. It enuea vors to persuade itself that, after all, the lightning hun struck no bndV but the black republicans. It says: "It so turns out, that the result of the struggle is no democratic victory, and the democracy need not rfiiica over it as such. But for Mr. Fillmore and his friends, Buchanan's defeat would have been overwhelming. But aside from all this, it is a satisfaction to the Fillmore men, north and south, to see the republicans bite the dust to see their htuchtv pride tumole down, and their "shrieks" subside to wails of despair." The Journal and the Enquirer do not groan alike. One thinks that "sectionalism, fraud and chicanery have triumphed" the other thinks that "the result of the struggle is no democratic vie tory and that but for Mr. Fillmore and his friends Mr. Buchanan's defeat would have been over whelminir." Hal hal die on, gentlemen. The world will take a lesson from your tortures. JACKSON COUNTY, ALABAMA. This glorious old democratic county voted up wards of twenty.three hundred in the recent elec tion. Fillmore received 651 Buchanan all the rest. The RrciiTEB at Fault Agaih. We were all assured by the know nothings hereabouts that Mr. Fillmore had more thin 200,000 registered and sworn voters in New York, and was therefore cer tain of tbo voto of that State. It turns out that he get only 120,000 votes, and thoee conCding know nothings, who bet their money on the offl cial register, are just now doing some rather hard swearing because they have to pay it up to more sensible democrats. Fillmore at Home. Poor Fil Imore has not the consolation of carrying oven his own county. He finds himself in the third party at home. His law partner, S.G.

To the unknown frietdrto 'whom we' are in-" debted for this priceless compliment, no language can convey the sinccra gratitude we feel. It is not for us to estimate the value of the services which we, in our humble way, may have rendered in the recent canvass. It ia our privilege to say, however, that, properly appreciating the healthful or deliterious influence which the press must always exert .in a govern ment like ours, and deeply and earnestly impressed with the truth of the Democratic principles and the peculiar importance of their ascendency at this crisis, we have labored in all earnestness of heart to produce a result upon which we believed the very safety of the government itself depended. For the zeal and honesty of purpose with which we, in conjunction with our experienced stnior, have pursued our course, rather than any peculiar efficiency of our labors, do we attribute this agree able manifestation of favor. The Hcant canvass is regarded, generally, as the most important in the history of our government. The triumph of the Democracy over all odds has been signal and complete. The country is safe and our friends aro rejoiced. At such a time and nnder such circumstances, to be the recipient of suoh a compliment, affords a satisfaction in life for which there is no appropriate expression ; except to labor on, and endeavor in the future to repay the confidence of the past. Accept, gentlemen, our most grateful acknowledgements. COMUUmOATlON. In these days when throughout the Northern States whole congregations resolve themselves into political caucusses and vote in bodies for Fremont, Free Love, Free Negroes, &o, it if truly refresh ing to know that in the entire ranks of the clergy of the Protesttant Episcopal Church there has been but one Bolitary instance known where the Minister mistook his pulpit for a political stump. Sometime during the past spring or summer. the Rev. Dudley A. Tyng, of Philadelphia, to the great mortification of the Church North and South, soiled the reputation of his denomination by a Sabbath-day disquisition on the evils of slavery and the consequent immorality of slaveholder. The vestry of his church, who are the executive of the congregation, at once requested him to re sign, which he declined to do unless the request was sustained by the congregation. The extract which follows is taken from the New York Churchman, which is the organ of the P. Episoo pal Church of the United States : Three Words. Some time ego, the Kev. Dad lev A. Tvner. Rector of the Church of the Epipha ny, preached very strong politics one Sunday morning. His vestry unanimously requested him to resign. He refused, unless tna action ot the vstrv was sustained by the legal voters of tho Parish. These have now been spoken, and they sustain the vestry by a vote ot 57 to 44, and 1 blank. Mr. Tyng, therefore, it is said, immediately resigned. In favor of the abstract right of either vestry, or people, or both, to dictate to ine clergyman wnat ne snail preacn, we nave noi one wora to say. As to the particular result the being summa rily driven out of a parish for "preaching politics," we have but three woras to say: strvea mm right. THE SOUTH CAROLINA METHOD OF CHOOSING ELECTORS. Tho General Assembly of this State will meet at Columbia to-day, to cast tho vote of South (Jaro Una for the President and Vice President of the United States, and will present a scene very differ ent from that which will be enacted in other sec lions of the Union. While, elsewhere, we have reason to believe that there will be a great excite raent; that political machinery will be brought to betr; that the worn ot passions win te appealed to by the worst of men; that those who aspire to DB me expooeuia ui uu euiigumueu u;;e w in caui- bit their fitness for that office by leading mob?; and that all the people of every other State, at no mat ter what inconvenience acd expense, mast quit their homes and force their way to the polls some hundred anl seventy gentlemen will quietly assemble at the State House, and, with an order and decorum that will be rarely witnessed in any other deliberative assembly, will cast the vote of the State and forthwith return to their homes again, with no more of popular disturbance than might the meeting of the Corporators of a Rail road.

In home training two rules must be adhered to, if parents would accom plish grest and imperishable results, 'the hrst is prayer, and the second perseverance. Wesley's homo education, under the tutelage of his parents, was peculiar, and well calculated to initiate him only in names 01 oruer, ana resoiuie enort in ac complishinR any object he might undertake, "Why, my dear," said his father to his mother or she to him, (I forget which) while patiently teach ing one of their children a simple lesson, which it was slow to learoj "why, my dear, do you tell that boy the same thing twenty times over?" "Be cause," replied the other, "nineteen times won't do. If I tell him but nineteen times all my labor is lost, but the twentieth time secures my object 1" All classical antiquity has not bequeathed us a maxim of more pract'cal wisdom. Christian faith imbibes it from the Word of God. If we would teach knowledge to the young, and make them to understand the doctrine traugbt with lite, and noli ness. and salvation, "precept must be upon pre cept, line upon line, here a little and there a little." In such a school, Wesley's mind was prepared to achieve the greatest things by being taught the smallest, and whatever he learned at all he learned well. Bright Hodrs and Gloomt. Ah, this beauti ful wcrldl I know not what to think of it.

He will carry with him our most sin cere wishes for hia welfare and prosperity. Lou. Journal. A Wexx-Dserved Compliment. It has been suggested by some of our friends that asplendid flag should be presented by the American party of Louisville to the Americans of Maryland for their gallant and triumphant effort in behalf of Ameri can principles. This compliment is well deserved by the Americans of Maryland, and from none can it come with more graceful propriety than from the city ol Louisville. We do not know an Amer ican in the whole city who will not cheerfully and gladly contribute for this purpose. Let it be done and well done, in a style becoming our party in this city. Lou. Jour.

Gloriously has she endorsed the ao- tion of her talented and influential delegates to the Cincinnati Convention. Nobly has sh struck a mighty blow for the Constitution, the equality of the States and the Union. . The result, so far as indicated by the retnms, fully justifies ns in vindicating Tirginia from the slanders of her enemies. In his speech in this city, the night before the election, J. M. Botts whose "Blue Black Repub lican" scheme for carrying Pennsylvania concoct ed with the aid of Kenneth Rayner, was bo beauti fully frustrated by the honest bearing of the voters of the Keystone State John M. Botts, we repeat, predicted with considerable energy that Virginia would go for Fillmore, and for a most wonderful reason, worthy cf the sagacity of that most accu rate of prophets 1 Mr. Botts said that Fillmore would carry Virginia, because Fremont would re ceive 10,000 votes in North-western Virginia, and all those vote3 would be taken from the Democra cy! The election has taken place ; we have not yet heard of a single vote cast for Fremont in Vir ginia. On the contrary, so far as we have heard from the West and North-west of Virginia, the democracy have gained enormously. We deem it a simple act of justice thu3 to vidicste the sound nesa of the democracy of Western Virginia, so wantonly assailed by their bitter toes. THE LATE RICHMOND DOEL. The following communication dotails more clear ly the difficulty between Mr. Roam Prtor of the Enquirer, and Dr. Phinnet, than anything we have yet seen. The gross attack of Dr. Phinhst appears to have been not only uncalled for, but wholly inexcusable : Richmond, Va., Nov. 2, 1856. To (he Editors of tht New York Daily News: Not a little excitement exists in Richmond in consequence of an untoward event which had it) denouement yesterday. A large proportion of the planters and farmer of the State having been diawn together by the Agricultural Fair, political discussions, always in order in Virginia, engrossed every one. In the course of conversation a Dr. Phinney, who represents Wise's District, Acco- mac, in the atate senate, commented very severe ly on the conduct of your co temporary, Mr. Roger Pryor, of the Richmond Enquirer. The remarks of Dr. Phinney having been made in the presence of ladies, admitted of no restriction or explana- tion, Bnd Air. rryor having heard of what Dr. r. bad said, immediately sought him out.

Much sympathy is felt for Mr. Pryor, who has been reg ularly dragooned into this act by political oppo nents, who have long sought to force him into 1 fight.

THE WAY THE FKEUONTERS CANVASSED. The Boston Post very accur ately and humor ously takes off the preacher-politicians of the recent canvass after the following faibion: Enter Deacon Holy dom, speaking as he enters "Excuse me, Ma am, for entering, but I have, as you may be aware, a great interest in the cause of religion and merality, and I have called to ask you suppose your nusoana is not at nomer ) "No Sir." "Well ma'am, I called to ask you how your hns band is going to vote in the next election?" "Well, Deacon Holy-dom, my husband has a! ways been a Democrat, and I presume he will vote tor Mr .Buchanan. "Yes, Ma'am: but your husband is, I believe, a moral and religious man, and we supposed all the pious people would of course vote lor Fremont and .f reedom. "Is Mr. Fremont a pious man, Deacon Holy dom?" "Oh yes, Ma'am; Mr. Fremont is a very pious man; his whole life has been devoted to the cause of freedom and piety, and there is great danger that if Mr. Buchanan is elected that slavery will be introduced into Rhode Island, and these dear little ones of yours will be placed in a state of bondage. (Here Deacon Holy-dom puts hia handkerchief to his right eye, while he looks at the lady with bis Ielu) "Do you really think so. Deacon?'1 "My dear Madam, there is no doubt of it, and I sincerely hope you will do all in your power to induce your husband to leave the wicked party with which be has hitherto been associated, and vote with us.

Value or Time. The Roman Emperor said, " I have lost a day;" he uttered a sadder troth than if he had exclaimed, "I have lost a kingdom." Napoleon eaid that the reason why he beat the AustraiDs was, that they did not know the value of hve minutes. At the celebrated battle of Rivoli, the conflict seemed on the point of being decided against him. He saw the critical state of affairs, and instantly took hipjresolution. He dispatched a flag to the Aus train head-quarters, with proposals for an armistice. The unwary Austrians fell into the snare, and for a few minutes the thunders of battle were hushed. Napoleon seized the precious moments, and, while amusing the enomy with mock negotiations, re-arranged his line of battle, changed his front, and, in a few minutes, was ready to re nounce the farce of discussion for the stern ar bitrament of arms. The splendid victory of Rivoli was the result. Thf great moral victories and defeats of the world otten turn on minutes. Crises come the seizing of which Is victory, the neglect of which is mm. Men may loiter, but time flies, and life flies on the wings of time, and all the greaf in terests of life are speeding on with the sure and silent tread of destiny. TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OP THE UNITED 8TATBS. National Democratic Oommitik R00113, ) ' November 6, 1866. J $ Thn trcst of condocfincr the national canvass confid.'d to the democratic National Resident Com mittee has been discharged with the fidelity which the honor and ths exigency ot that trust alike de manded, acd the committee has to unite its con gratulatioi s with ycur own in announcing the suc cess of the democratic ticket by a decided and gratifying majority. The struggle is over, and the union is sate. Ours is, indeed, a new and signal triumph. Here tofore our victories have been achieved over those who, like ourselves, were friends of the Union. This has been a conquest over its enemies. Here tofore our antagonists have contended with frater nal eagerness for the honor of promoting the pro--gress or of insuring the duration of the republic. Those' whom we have just vanquished sought, un der a treacherous adherence to the forms ot the constitution, to rob it of all its essence and vital ity. The principles of the democratic party hav ing become the established policy of the federal governmant, it became necessary for its enemies to organize some now and desperate combination to overthrow it. An unnatural alliance between fanaticism and venality hos engendered a monster which the democratic party has with greaf peril sought out and destroyed. That monster was sectionalism. The circumstances under which the evil origina ted were peculiar. The land has been clouded by a miasma of error. The belief that one part of the Union had been invaded by the institutions of another, and that the federal government had lent its power to promote this injustice, had spread with epidemical rapidity. It had been infected into the circulation of popular thought with all the force of an unscrupulous press, and was spread broadcast over the land by the whole power of representative influence. It seemed at one time almost in vain to pursue with tho antidote of truth and reason this venomous error as it sped through the channels of pubi c opinion. Our enemies had chosen their ground with skill ; they had recruited their ranks with all the influen ces which could combine an army. They pro claimed the ultimate abolition of slavery as the in centive to the fanatic the division of the spoils as the reward of the mercenary. Tho pretended in vasion of a sacred right constituted their appeal Co thojo with patriotic impulses, whilst a feigned re gard for the Union was to secure the support or the neutrality of all whose material interests were involved in its duration. These devices had or ganized a formidable array. Masses of honest and earnest men were deluded by the teachers whom they had trusted into the belief that their govern ment had betrayed and their fellow-citizens had oppressed them. Divines, girded with the sword and clothed with the authority of the Gospel, preached bloody resistance to the laws as themojt acceptable service to God. Woman quitted her peaceful station to animate .with her apprehensions those to wnom ner wisues are ever a commanu; and the youth, indoctrinated by wily managers, responded with enthusiasm to false appeals address ed to their innate and generous hatred of oppres sion. Politicians speculated philosophically upon the capacity of the constitution, caring only to know whether its native strength of structure would bear the agitation necessary to secure the success of their nefarious schemes, and still leave enough of stability to insure their enjoyment. It was the purpose of these conspirators (0 se cure possession of the government if it perished as it must have perished in their grasp. It was their purpose to inaugurate the north as the domi nant section. Ths rule of eligibility was to be obedience to the sway and conformity to the opm ions of the dominant section. The subjugation of Ireland by force, division, and bribery wa3 to be reproduced upon this continent, and the southern states were to db reuuceo to a mere provincial ap pendago of the leccrai government, ouch was the plan, and disunion must have followed its ac complishment. Uoutbern men would have only differed as to the hour and mode of separation. The cement which binds the fabric of the Union would have lost its cohesion in the fires of the con flier, and the majestic fabric would have crumbled and fallen in ruins, never again to be reconstructed Never was the republic in such peril Never were the friends of the Union, from any sufficient existing grievance, less prepared to have appro hended a conspiracy so atrocious. Hut those to whom vou had committed the safety of the repub lio were faithful to their trust. The democratic party was, by common consent, acknowledged to be the sole party of the Union, and was charged with its defence. Sound and truthful documents adeauate to the emergency wero prepared, and cir calated to an extent scarcsly inferior to that of the errors which they were intended to counteract. Able and eloquent orators were impressed into tho service of the Union. Tbey responded with an alacrity worthy that with winch their ancestry had reoaired to the battle-fisld in the same holy causs. Never was there more harmony in the democratic cause. Never d.d the patriots of every party earn more true fflory than when they enrolled them selves in the recent canvass under the banner of democracy, and marched to fight for the salvation of the Union. - Mv ferow-oit'zens. the contest is, for the present, ovf r. The democratic party is egain in control of the government. It will have ample opporlmmy to convince those who have been misled, that its onlv obiact is tho establishment of equal rights. not the propaealion of a sectional policy. It will show the world that it desires only to promote the political and commarci.il progress ot thu great re public to advance the causa cf human civilization aLd liberty, not to acquire tho property of other nations by force or fmml. It will demonstrate that democratic pricciohs aro alone adequate to the effectual adminisiratiou of the government, and that they era, as they have been, fully competent to insure the success 01 mat repuoucan empire which our fathers have founded and committed to our care. In closing the performance of the arduous and responsible duties confided to our hands by the confidence of the democratic party, we have to return our thanks t ProvideBca for baviog per mitted us in any sense, howsoever humble, to have been instrumental m preserving cur beloved coun try from a conspiracy so dangerous to its peaca and tranquility, and in having contributed to a re sult so conclusive of the established ascendency of democratic principles, and so auspicious to ths per menency of the Union. Chas. Jas. Faulkner, Chairman. The Nasbville Railroad. The importance to Louisville of the early completion of the Louisville and Nashville Railroad gives unusual interest to the recently published annual report ot the presi dent and directors of the company. It is a plain and candid statement by the president, chief en gineer, and superintendent, of the progress, con dition and prospects of the work and the means at the command ot the company. Until now tho prosecution of the work has been delayed by many serious obstacles that are hap pily removed or about to be overcome, and the prospect is promising for the rapid progress and early completion of the whole lies of road. Wn are gratified to learn that the board of directors have adopted the policy ot applying all their avail able means to the completion of a continuous line of road from Louisville southward. The propriety of this policy is unquestionable. It will not only enhaoo tho credit uf tho cumpany and onabls it to press forward the work with greater rapidity. but will afford immediate 'benefit to the stock holders and to the city of Louisville. Jt will also stimulate those who are more particularly inter ested in such portions of the road as are more re mote from Louisville to increase their efforts to aid in its immediate construction. The benefits already derived from the operation of the thirty one miles now in use are an earnest of what may be expected from its gradual extension into the rich and productive country lying between Louis ville and the Tennessee St ate line. Lou. Journal. Religious Bearings of the Election. The tri umph of the democracy on the 4th of November will, besides its great political consequences, pro duce this great benefit to religion and morality : It will administer a reproof to those unworthy minis ters of the Gospel of Christ who have abandoned their holy functions to engage in the worldly and uncODsranial contests of politics and parties. A vast an incalculable injury has been inflicted on true religion and the influence of the clergy by thi3 intermeddling of preachers in politics. The failure of all their efforts to mislead and dslude the dbodIs will, doubtless, teach them the folly and danger of these departures from their appointed sDherea. Let them return to their pulpits wiser and better men, and devote themselves to their ap pointed tasks, in which they will enjoy the confi dence and respect of thn people, and be enabled to promote the cause.of religion and merality.

About eight o'clock last evening a terrible afTair took place in front of Guy's Hotel, in Seventh street, above Cbesnut. At the time named three shots from a rovolver were heard, and tho crowd upon hastening to tho scene found a man lying up on the steps of tho hetel, bleeding, and another man standing near him with a Colt's revolver in his hand. The prostrate man cried out that he was killed, and the other declared that he had fired the shots, and giving up his pistol, avowed his willing, ness to be taken into custody. The wounded man was taken to the drug-store on tho corner, and from thsre ho was removed to the Pennsylvania Hospital. The sufferer proved to be Mr. Philip S. Clawges, late of the firm of Wilmer & Olawges, fancy dry goods dealers, No. 139 Market street. His inju ries were of the most serious character, all three of the8hots having taken effect. One ball passed through his breast and out at the back ; another entered the abdomen, and the third shattered one of his arms. The man who hsd fired the pistol was taken to the Mayor's office. He proved to be Isaac 0. Shur lock, a book-keeper in the firm of which Mr. Clawgea was lately a member. He declared freely that he bad committed the deed, that be bad been instigated to it by the bad conduct of Olawges, and he expressed no regret at the occurrence. Mr. Ciawges lies at the Pennsylvania Hospital in a perfectly hopeless condition; he was still alive this morning, but his recovery is pronounced im possible by the attending physician?. His wife went to the institution last night, and has tiuce remained by the bedside of her dying husband. The sufferer is about forty.fi ve years of age; he has four children living. Oae of them is grown up. Mr. 0. was well known in the city. From the statement of Mr. Shurlock it seems that for some time past an intimacy has existed between Mr. Ciawges and Mrs. Shurlock. Mr. 0. had firct been introduced by Mr. Shurlock to the wife of the latter, and he took frequent occasions to poison the mind of Mrs. S. against her husband, 1 .-11: 1 " r 1 - -1 ... . . uy iciiiug uer a.uiiua ui 013 innceiity to ner, ana striving to undermine her virtue. Ciawges, it is alleged, drugged wine in the house of Mrs. S. and then took advantage of her condition to accomplish his bad designs. Quito recently the lady told the story of her wronga to her husband, Bnd the tra gedy last night was the result It is further said that Clawees had borrowed eeveral sums ot monev from Sbur(ock,and bis refusal to repay the amounts thus ocr.oweu nas piooabiy added to the Indigua lion of the Irjured husband. Mr.Sburljt.k is about twenty-thiee or twenty' four years of age; he has been married about two years, and has cue child 1 ving. The prisoner was brought tefcre Alderman Enue, at the Mayor s Ofhce, this morning. The office was crowded with anxious spectators.

His C3untenar.ce is indicative of firmness, and he bore himself with much foititude iuhis painful post lion. Harrison G. Clark was called to the stand anl testified as follows: I am one of the High Consta bles; I did not witness this transaction; I saw the prisoner brought into thi3 office after the occurence; I had a conversation with him; he was not caution ed against making any statesmen!, nor were there any inducements be.d out to him to do so; I ask ed him how he came to do it; that be met the sen tleman on the street and accused him; he (the prisoner) admitted the act. High Constable Clark further stated that he had understood that it was impossible for Mr. Ciawges to live. Tho District Attorney asked that the prisoner oe committed to answer. Alderman Kuue called the defendant up and told him that he was committed for a further hear ing, to awai the result of the wounds received by 1 r i. Mr. uiawges. Prisoner "Very well, sir." Mr. Shurlock was sabsequsntly Eent to Moya mensing prison in a chaise. This painful affair has cro ited a ereat deal of ex citement; both parties are well known, and the prisoner ha3 hitherto borne an excellent charac ter. SALE OF GROCERIES. nr DAVIS, PILCHER & CO.
