OLASUOTVl --"THURSDAY, 'NOVEMBER 16, lS4s." iENERAL ZACHARY TAYLOR ELECTED! The ftraiitl Result. ' y,' , 4 "Sufficient returns hova been received to unceringly 'indicate the election' of Gen. TAYLOR TresideW, and MILLIARD TILLMORX. Vice President of this great Republic, for four yean from the 4ih of March next, ' . . As this glad "newt came rolling over the country. it sent a thrill of joy to the hearts of millions, and the exclamation involunta ' rily escaped the lips of thousands, " T II 13 r COUNTRY IS SAFE!" Aye 1 "tub country is safeT llcr destinies will soon be committed to the hands of a man whose Platform is her sa cred, blood-bought Constitution, and who stands pledged only to defend that sacred platform from invasions without or immo lation within. That he will do this, in ad dition to his recent pledges to thai effect, we have his whole lite as guarantee. ". Who asks more ? No one who knows Gen. Taylor, or who has studied his life and character. , . . As far as' is yet known, the States that have contributed to this glorious result, are New York, . 30 Pennsylvania, 20 Massachusetts, ' 12 ' ' " ' Rhode Island, 4 Connecticut, ' 0 New Jersey, 7 " Maryland, 8 Vermont, 6 North Carolina, 11 Georgia, 10 Kentucky, ' 12 Tennesse, 13 . Louisiana, 0 Delaware, 3 which 'give a handsome majority of the votes of the Electoral collpge. We think tliis majority will yet be increased. With the result of this election, we sin cerely believe a great majority of the peo ple of the United States will be pleased and notwithstanding Gen. Taylor will re ceive the Government enormously in debt, and consequently greatly embarrassed, yet we opine by the lime his four years are out, so satisfactorily will he have adminis tered its affairs, that be will retire from office with a stronger hold upon the affec tions of the peoolc, than has so recently been indicated in his behalf: if, indeed, they permit him then to retire. '. The moral effect of this victory, is in calculable. Party debasement and unscru pulousness, will be no recommendation to posts of honor, trust, or profit under Gen Taylor. Honesty, capability, faithfulness to the constitution, must be the qualifica tions of his co-laborers and subordinates. While, aji ever, he will stand ready to de fend the honor and fame of hi country, to death, if need be, the honor and interests of other nations will be held sacred. We may look for laudable efforts to increase the bonds of union in our now distracted country, rather than a lustful desire for the territory of neighboring countries, which overleaps constitutional barriers, and na tional rights, producing war, with its innu merable train of evils. Well may the silver-haired patriot re joice that ho has lived to see a man of the olden school chosen to preside over the destinies of that country whose liberties he has fought to 'perpetuate ! Well may the middle-aged rejoice in the election of a man whose honesty and patriotism, whose . devotion to the country and its prosperity, gives a guarantee of her onward and up ward career to glory and renown) Well may the young rejoice in having so promi nently before them, in the persons of the President and Vice President elect, a veri fication of one, of the most beautiful fea tures of our beloved country, that her most honored and responsible posts are open to each and every one of them and that her citixans will reward Honesty .and Merit. - f n Upper California the gold excitement it greatly on the increase. Gov. Mason reached Monterey, (from the placer,) bring ing with him deserters whom he found up on the road carrying a press of canvass, and shaping leir course for the region of the precious meJ.U. i worthy and race, lious excellency nlaCtd these fellows, bare backed, on a few spare hi?.rso he had with bim, and, although the sailors frequently begged to be allowed to walk, i.'.'ey were pertinaciously refused, and compelled to travel in this way rr sixty miles. Un the 10th of August, a eourt martial commenced on board the Congress for the trial of the deserters from the Warren, above alluded to. Some of the cases have been decided, but the sentences bave not been promulga led. It is thought the punishment will be ever.' - WHIG MEETING. At a meeting of the Whigs of Glasgow and vicinity, held at "Crenshaw's Hotel," on Tuesday evening last, fo take into con sideration tho propriety "of celebrating, in a proper manner, the recent triumph of the people over the office-holders, in the election: of Gen.

Taylor to-morrow, (Friday,) evening, at llunlsville. 1 hey expect to have an illumination, procession, speaking, and a ball, and would be pleased to have as many of their wfcig friends be with litem as possible. Ninety-nine majority fur Old Zack, settles that contested election, in a very handsome manner! We cliancea to be at llunlsville when the news of Taylor' elec tion was received. We were not genera! I ly acquainted with the people and their politics, but could easily distinguish a whig from a loco, across the street, bo joyous looked the one, so long-faced the other! NEW SUBSCRIBERS. We send the "Times" this week to up wards of one hundred new subscribers, ob tained in atrip through Chariton, Linn, Macon and Randolph, during the last ten days. We are gratified, truly, on making our first appearance under such favorable aus pices. Friends, Gen. Taylor is elected ! Your Government, during the next four years, will be in Honest Hands Faithful Hands Republican Hands! The country is rescued from the clutches of the blood suckers, and will now be put upon the old Republican track. Thanks to an Inlelli gent and Patriotic Peoplel DC7The Whigs are busy congratulating themselves on ihcir recent triumph, and the loco editors who have fooled their readers, and caused many of them to lute their mon ey, are taming largely about "fraads," "Roorbacks," "whig lies and tricks," dec. Tbia is poor consolation, but it is all ihev have.' LINNEUS LINN COUNTY, f LiNneos, the county scat, of Linn coun ty, is beautifully situated, and improving very rapidly. The town has a neat, life like appearance; in which respect it Is very unlike many of our inland towns. -K is a sufficient distance from the river, not to be affected by the towns immediately on the river, and is a point al which consid erable business is done. . There are five stores in the place, all of whose keepers appeared to be engaged in waiting on cus lomcrs, and were apparently doing a good business. There are two taverns , in the place; the way-worn traveller will find ev ery thing to make , him feel at home, by calling on S. TniNO. The Court-house at Linncus is a very handsome and comforta ble building. . i , , . The county of Linn is inferior to none in point of soil and water advantages. The prairie and woodland is admirably propor lioned, rich and productive, guaranteeing to the Farmer ample remuneration for his labor; the i country is well watered by streams, which have some of the best mills on them in the State, both saw and grist The best possible evidence of the advan tages of Linn county, is the rapidity with which it has been settled. As recently as fifteen years, there was but one settler in the county. Now the town of Linneus must have a population of some four bun dred, while the county gives some seven hundred voles I of which number the locos have a majority of some seventy-five or one hundred which ia destined, ere long, to the peaceful shades of oblivion, where reposes the late Gen. Cass I The Whigs of Linn are a, patriotic, whole-souled set, and have placed us under lasting obligations to them. O Accord ing to promise, we greet them with the good news of Old Zack's election! Hj"" Bloominqton, the county seat of Macon, is a much smaller place than we expected to find, and wore to us something the appearance of a man who had "seen better days." The buildings, with a few exceptions, are of a temporary nature; the court house, "the temple of justice, no christian would house cattle in! It is a large edifice, built of brick, which looked as if they had been afflicted with fever and ague, ever since their residence in town and this idea was strengthened by the shattered condition of I"! windows and doors, the one being pane-less and the other hine .'ess. His Honor sat before the fire, in one corner of the house, sur rounded by lawyers afid tbeir clients, and when too many of them were net between him and the fire, occasionally got up and warmed himself; the members of the bar appeared in over-coats and over-shoes, and made short addresses to shivering jury men. The wind whistled through the crev ices, as if making sport of the exertions of the worthy sheriff, to keep up fires 1 We were there on Wednesday, after the elec tion, but could not learn the result. The locos usually give a majority of some two hundred and fifty, but from the best infor mation we could get, Cass' majority was under one hundred! A good old Whig with whom we conversed, said the small majority Cass had received, was the reason the locos did not know the result in the county, but, said he, the fog will blow off after awhile, the locos don't want to know, but we'll teach them ! 1 here is much good land in Macon, which is being settled by industrious far mers, and it will eventually be a rich coun ty. The position of Bloomington ia such, that it is bound to make a place of some site and business. A little county and town pride, will bring both out and if we mistake not the zeal of the whigs, will give them the ascendancy, by the time General Taylor is President four years. Illinois. The election returns from this State indicate large gains for Gen. Tavlor upon the election in 1811, when Polk car ried the Slate by nearly thirteen thousand. These gains are not confined to any partic ular part of the State, but are found on the north and in the south, in the east and the middle counties. Whether they will be sufficient to annihilate Polk's majority, and thus give the State to Taylor, is however, problematical. The effort has been a migh ty one on the part of the whigs, and proves what may be done by energy and enthusi asm in such a cause. If the Whigs are not successful now, they will at least have as certained their strength, and this will be of great service to them in future contests. In 49 counties the whig gain is a little over C800 votes. There are one hundred counties in the Slate, ond it would require nearly the same rate or gain to secure the State for Gen. Taylor. This cannot be calculated upon, with any safety, as almost all the counties in which " Free Soil" exer cised any influence have been heard from.

The pop ular vote cannot be known until the offi cial statements are published, and until then the people must have a little patience. Gen. Cass, it is quite certain, will appear in a larger minority of the Dooular vota f than the electoral vote indicates.
