Effects aud Fnlttre Prospects.
On the 12th of October electioa for State
officers and Meinbers of Congress were held
in Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, lowa and
Minnesota: In .all, except perhaps the latter,
' the Democratic party las been defeated.
This result Was unhooked forin Pennsylvania
and Indians; while in-Ohio and lowa our
:party went into the Contest , irithout theleast
hope .of seen a partial victory. \ ln "tee
Stated Minnesota, rations local questions
velatingioehe formation of a future State
policy have - doubtless been the controlling
issues. Tim result is as yet unknown to us,
and-will probably,have but little effect in
- *baring - the political standing of
_ - our new
sister in future conte s ts. The final result.,
thee, has been the. :cosi to the Democratic
. organization of tiro States,in neither of /which

Congress, but those elected over our candi

verdant eleinents that we are not in any wise
concerned at - the probable harm the:) , may
- do us. _
The causes that led to the result -are
various. One primary cause has _been the
general apathy and indifference of the party
in power. 'They anticipated an easy victory,
and made no great effort tolioll a full party
votie.and, their enemies have stoke a march
e upon them. The- Republicatt wing by
• ateandoning the Fremott platform of 'ell,
- secured the aid of the conservative vote of
the opposition, which last fall was given to

been turned to - good account by our foes.

The October Electieue.
Our very. latest advice& of the October
elections are as follows :
PimmrtxAsta.—The - oppotition have
elected their State ticket, a majority of the
Congresitnen and State Representatives:while
the DtlntoCrats will still base one majority in
the State Senate.
MINNEEter.We get but , few returirs,
not , enough tojudge 'of tbe'result.
• FLo RIDA.--DetocrasiO State, ticket . and
lowa.--Itelitina come in -I.lowly. Butlittle
change from last year.

I rend you. Mr. Thattlier, the editor of the

it, when he declared, trrest emphatically, that
the' ultra and extreme pro slavery :Know-

slavery Democrats were ej)mbining with the
free State Democrats, Abolitionists and - Re
publicans to vote down the Preposition, And
commended them Lit - rbly for the Same ; and
further said that Mr. - Miller, of this placc,
(who replied to him in a very able !Vander)
was the only man be had seen in his tour of
three weeks stumping, who said he Would
come out boldly and-vote for the bill. This
explanation, I hope, will settle the nerves of

for this plain, unvarnished statement of facts,
in relation thereto.
In my former letter I stated that, the outfit

'the proislavery Tarty, and cited ' several in
. stances' in proof. I frequently hCar'of others.
In conversation with the ;Rev. Mr. .Brad

• The outrages sufficiently indicate the
,character of the men who have 'kept up the
commotion in this Territory by setting all
laws at defiance, and in whose favor dema

You will observe by a letter of Judge Cot- ,
way's in the Lawrence "Republican" that en
effort is to be made to press through Congress
the Leavenworth "Nea b To-Equality Qonstitu
, Von," the offspring' ofli party and without
1 authority of law. The following extract fro
the Judge's letter shows that the arguments
, used by -Mr. Vucbanan and ',the Demaeratic
party in favor of a legal Constitution,• and
,denounced by the'Republicans as the vilest
heresy, is now reorted to for the purpose of
bolstering up an, i strument gotten up by a
party and not by the people :
'lt is supposed by some, however, that in
consequence of the small votei - polled at the '
election on the Leavenworth Constitution,* '
will be out, of the power of Congress to admit
us under .that instrument. But this is a very
erroneous idea. The law providing for a.
hpbtoi4ioo of the Constitution to..a you) of the
people did not render At necessary that tit?

Of those ,who did vot e,a majority should be
for the Consaltrtion—and that, would ratify
it. .The idea that the- 'whole population
Should vote at an election to give rit,effeet is
impracticable and absurd: If the whole
popubltion be required to vote s then any
ournber iak pet-sons, however small, can defeat
any election by simply etaylug away from the
polls. Both the sense tied the law of the
whole matter is - tb the effect 'that rstrajority

by the supporters of the Leavenworth Con

Much has been said in regard to the
probable population of, this Territory, the
Republicans, while it is suitable, estimating
it as low as 35,000 .
. Now as I am averse to
protruding .my Own' speculations upon vthe
public, I refer to nu estimate in the editorial
columns of the Lawrence "Republican?
quoted from above, with the remark that I
eontideohe calculations reasonable. Here
it is :.

a total of 14,231...Add3e.that, for f.r -igners,
