The following statement of the consequences
of the election of Lxxcom‘, which we take from
the Journal of Cummcrce, is a significant com
mentm‘y upon the assurances so lavishiy given
by ttheput-licans before the election, that their
success would restore quiet to the country and
quicken all industrial operations so as to fur
nish ample employment to the laboring clas-
Stormers or Bcsmsss.—Owing to the partial suspen
sion of orders from the South, the small receipts ol‘ cash
from that quarter, and the prevailing distrust and un
rertainty as to the future, manufacturing opemtions
have been susyanded or greatly reduced by many large
houses, thereby throwing numerous persons out of 01m
ploymont. One clothing establishment which we
might name, has discharged 11000 hands; 1!. hut estab
lishment has discharged near 31,000; a. snddlery firm
111: reduced its force about 500; and curtailment is very
general At Newark especially, the crisis is severely
felt, on account of their exteusn‘e— conccfions with the
Southern trade. Should there he no improvement,
much sull'ering must ensue among the laboring classes.
It appears singular at first sight, that thus far, houses
in the Western business are. the largest sufferers; but it
is inevitable that all cluses of traders miter from the
unveiling panic, unless we except the manufacturers of
lire-arms. It would probably be no exaggeration to
estimate the number of persons thrown out of employ
ment since election day, at 25,009; a large proportion
of whom are young women.
The Duty of Democrats.
Before the Presidential election the Demo
erotic party warned the people that the success
of the Republican party upon its sectional basis
would be disastrous to the material interests of
the country, and dangerous to the stability of
the Union. This warning voice was nnheeded
by those who were either so intent upon secu
ring the spoils of office that they would not stop
to think, or who regarded the threatening as
pect of the South as part of a game to frighten
them from acting out- their honest convictions.
Since all the evils foreshadowed by the Demo—
cratic press is upon us—oommeroial prostration
and imminent danger of secession and civil
war, there is not a Democrat in the country
who does not feel satisfied to be ranked with
that. courageous minority who resisted the elec
tion of Ln'cou'. Defeated though we are, We
would rather at this moment. belong to the
Democratic party, and have the satisfaction of
knowing that. the responsihility for the present,
troubles cannot. be placed to our account, than
to belong to the victorious Republican party
and bear a share of its fearful load of respon
sibility; for it has plunged the conntr§r into
difficulties, not. unwittingly, hut. in spite of sol
emn and repeated warnings that the success of
a purely sectional party must necessarily pro
duce counteracting sectional agitation, and a
consequent strain upon the bond of union.
When a. party is defeated in ajust cause it
is not. crushed and annihilated. The heme
erotic party must, in time, emerge from the
clouds and darkneSs' that. have enveloped it for
a season. The moment. that the people learn
the truth that. the defeat of the Democratic
party is productive of trouble and disaster to
the country, in all its interests, that moment
they will learn to repent that they ever listened
to the clamor of the Republicans and contribu
ted to the success of that party. This impor
tant. lesson is already being taught in a way
that. cannot, be misunderstood. The election of
a Republican President has impaired confi
dence, alienated the South from the North, un
settled commercisl relations, deprived Northern
manufacturers of their Southern customers,
and thrown thousands of men, dependent upon
these establishments for support, out of em
ployment at the beginning of winter. This is
not the entertainment to which the Republi
cans invited the people as the fruit of their
success. Instead of abundant employment and
high wages, and a. glorlous time generally,
which was promised to follow close upon the
triumph of the party of Freedom, we have
alarming civil commotions, stagnation in busi
ness of all kinds. and the prospect. ahead of
deeper distress. And this, 1.00, at a time when
everything material contributes to make apros
perous and active season. The existing difii—
oulties are not due to short crops, or over-tra
ding, or to any of the ordinary causes of com
mercial distress, but solely and exclusively to
the irritations created by the sweeping success
of the sectional Republican party.
If the present difiiculty should be happily
quieted—which God grant—it is apparent that
the domination of the Republican party must be
of short continuance. One term of Republican
rule will satisfy the people, and the Union will
never again be subjected to another such trial.
The country will be ready, after the expiration
of Lincoln’s term of ofice, to reinstate the
Democratic party in power, provided that party
behaves with prudence and uses the proper
means to regain popular favor. '
Some of these means we have already indi
cated, and we would not have Democrats to lose
sight of them; for we cannot begin to repair
the damage done to the Democratic party at too
early 3 day. The most important of these
agencies is the press. Attend to the circula
tion of sound Democratic newspapers, in order
to counteract the influence of the Republican
papers that are spread over the Whole land.—
This should be attended to quietly and indus
trionsly, without delay, as the surest means of
building up the influence of the party.
It is also necessary that the Democratic party
shoula place itself in a. position to take advan
tage of the mistakes and blunders of the Ile
publicans. By this we mean that we must
cease quarrelling among ourselves if we expect
‘0 make an! impression upon the enemy.—
There will be some uneasy agitators in our
ranks constantly raking up the ashes of old
controversies, and if we head them the party
Will be k9lli: constantly in hot water. We
should regard the late bitter fight concerning
Presidential candidates as fought out, exhaust.-
ed, terminated; and every man as an enemy
Who thrusts it upon us for mischievous and fac
tious purposes. Let. the dead bury their (lead.
We can’t dragoon each other into endorsing
one side or the other, but. we can agree to for
get controversy, and. make common cause
against the Republicans, and so place the party
in a. position to lake advantage of the mistakes
and nmlefactions of the common enemy. We
must hold them up to the strict performance of
the many obligations they assumed during the
campaign, and Show the people how they were
cheated into the support of a party whose only
influence is evil: and if (his is properly accom—
plished, as there are sure 10 be proper oppor
tunities. public confidence must necessarily be
withdrawn from the Repubiicau party and given
once more to the Democratic party.
Senator Trumbull’s Springfield Speech
The Republican celebration at Springfield,
Illinois. the home of Ann-nun LINCOLN, the
President elect, come off on the 20th instant,
according to appointment. Mr. LINCOLN made
a. short speech, developing nothing concerning
his future policy, except what might. be inferred
from a general expression of fraternal feeling
towards all American citizens? The speech of
the day, however, was delivered by Senator
Tnunnenn, and is regarded as foreshadowing,
to some extent, the opinions entertained by Mr.
errom. )Ir. TBIFDIBULL is certainly one of
the nhlest, and probably the most moderate
among the leaders of the Republican party.
In the Senate his hearing is such as to command
attention and respect. :\8 :t debater he exhi
bits fertility and power {and in point of gen—'
eral capacity he may be ranked as second only
to Mr. SEWAm) among the Republican leaders
in the Senate. Mr. Tmmncu. was a leading
Democrat in Illinois up to the year 1354, when
the repeal of the Missouri Compromise cd'rried
him, along with many other free soil Democrats.
into the Republican party. With his character
for moderation and Democratic antecedents we
anticipated that Mr. Tnnmwmfs semi-official
exposition of the Lumen: policy Would be‘freo
from ultraism's. and those asperitios which
have already produced so much mischief; and
in the main our anticipations are realized.—
Some of Mr. Tnnnn 11.1.75 declarations are col
cnlated to have a soothing influence. He says,
doubtless atl'visedly, that “ Mr. meom, al
“ though the candidate of the Republican
“party, as Chief Magistrate, will neither he
“ long to that or any other party. When in
“augurated he will be the President of the
“ country, and the whole country.” A noble
ambition ; but. a. path which, if followed, must
inevitably destroy theliepublican organization,
for the reason that Republicanism, as at present
constituted, could not exist a day after depart.-
ing from that sectional anti-slaveryism which
constitutes its sole power. Mr. LINCOLN will
find, before he ispomfortnhly warm in the Pros
idential chair, that Republicanism and patriot
ism are so far incompat-cblo that. he must re
nounce one or the other, and if he determines to
be the President ot‘ the whole country he must
cease to be the leader of a. sectional-party.
Mr. Tm'mzom. then proceeds to interpret the
Republican victory—J: We have gained,” says
he, “a. decision of the people in favor of a Pen
“ cine Railroad—o Homestead policy-—n. judi
“ cions Tariff—the admission into the Union of
,“Knnsas as a Free State—4L reform in the
“financial department, of the Government——
“ and, more imparmnt thziu all, the verdict of
fithc people—the sour-ea of power, and from
“ whose decision there is no appeal—filmy the
"Constitution is‘not a slavery-eytendivs in
f; Ff‘n‘nlpllla Xv nun“, ”D; ca {3..-u“, 46015038 will
“now be made.”
And this is all he has to show for plunging
the country into all this turmoil and peril ~—
There is not one of these projects that has
ever been controverted, except that of subject—
ing the decisions of the Supreme Court to pop
nlur control, which is an absurdity. No one
opposes the construction of a. Pacific railroad
at the proper time, or :1. Homestead policy, or
ajudirz‘ous Tariff, (mind he does not. saypratcctiee
Tarifl,) or'the admission of Kansas into the
Union, or a. reform in the financial department,
of the Government; but all of us are notable
to see how reform in the public finances is to
be accomplished by expending millions upon
millions upon a. Pacific railroad and giving
away the Public Lands. Possibly Mr. Trum
nvLL knows how the expenses of Government
may be increased and the finances reformed at
the same time, but we must. confess our inabil
ity to understand how it can‘he done.
Exrnxstvn Puncnnsrs or Wan Mml'nons ‘
FOR. Tlll Scorn—Those Republican editors, ‘
preachers and lecturers who think that the in- ‘
dignation of the South is best put down by ridi- ‘
sole, and who, therefore, lavish theresonrces of ‘
their bulfoonrey upon every reported attempt of ‘
a Southern State to arm their citizens for, an 3
impending conflict, will find in the following ‘
facts more evidence that the South is in ear
nest, and that the calamities of disunion, which ‘
they would laugh away with their ill-timed ‘
jests, are actually imminent- ‘
On Tuesday there arrived by the steamer 3
City of Hartford, from Hartford, 180 cases of l
Sharp’s patent carbines, containing 10 pieces
each, making in all arms for 1,800 men, and 40
cases conical halls, each containing 1,000 bul
lets, or 40,000 cartridges in the aggregate—-
These arms and ammunition were ordered by
telegraph from the Governor of Georgia, and
will be sent to Savannah by the next steamer.
The same factory has also received orders from
Alabama for 1,000 stands of the same death
dealing Weapons.
Cooper & Pond. of this city, receive from
twenty to fifty orders daily from South Caro
line, Alabama and Georgia—and people who
suppose that the South is not a paying cus
tomer may be astonished to know that their busi
ness transactions in this line are strictly on a.
cash basis. Cash within thirty days is their
invariable rule. Most of the orders are for
rifles and Navy revolvers, though Cooper &
Pond supply an immense number of flint lock
muskets. They lately sent twenty gun oar
riages to Georgia, and have done a brisk busi
ness in all kinds of small arms and ammuni
tion with all the principal Southern States.
Another large house in this city has filled ‘
orders for about 5,000 stand of muskets of the
United States pattern, and has sold large quan
tities of artillery swords and army pistols. Its ‘
orders come from all the Southern States; but. ‘
mainly from those in which secession is re
garded as the only remedy for Southern grie
vnnces. A third extensive establishment has
supplied an immense number of Colt’s revolvers
and rifles to Georgia, principally to Columbus.
All the wholesale houses and agencies in the
city have been hard pressed to supply the orders
for every imaginable species of weapon. To
the above list may be added Ameg’s Mmufgc.
turing 00., which has furnished Georgia with
cannon and with 300 artillery swm-ds and has
done a large miscellaneous business with all
the aggrieved States.
The Southern States, living until I‘9oentlyin
peace and happiness under the roof-tree of a
common Union, have neglected the establish—l
ment of firearm factories within their own
borders. During the past year, Virginia first
recognized the necessity of starting a State
armory, and appropriated $lOO,OOO for the
‘ work. Some commencement has already been
made on it, but it is certain that the Armory
will not be completed within one year, and in
the mean time she must depend'on the North.
Various statements have been circulated about
the present armament of Virginia. It is be
lieved that she can, as asserted, bring 25,000
men into the field, but the tremendous batteries
of rifled cannon Which have been said to belong
to her do not exist. We understand, from good
authority, that she has but one rifled cannon.
Indeed, in the matter of heavy ordnance. oil
the Southern States appear to be far behind the
North. >
South Carolina, is (he only Southern State
which has an armory of her own. It. has been
in operation some years, and turns out good
work, though at a. cost not less probably than
that of the same class of arms in the Nol‘l-h.—~

Pummsn 1n Gnmr Drums—Among the
recent items of intelligence from England,
perhaps not the least agreeable is one pertain—
ing to pugilism. It is well known that John
Bull has long considered ring fighting a
national pastime, and has not only defended it
as u healthful recreation, but encouraged it as
conducive to physical development and manly
courage. Thus smiled upon from the begin
ning, the practice spreads and the fun “ grew
fast and furious,” until “bull fights” became
almost as frequent in England as in Spain.—
The bullies filled the country with slang and
swagger. The science of fisticutl‘s was erected
into an idol which itwas intended other nations
should bow down to and worship. The nations
new and wondered; but one of them, it is‘
claimed, was so presumptuous as to strike down
the idol. The client was much like that which
would result from removing the queen from a
bee—hive. The “ pugs” rallied in swarms, and
with many imprecations insisted that the image
was still there, and that they were as zealous
devotees as ever. The British people at first
joined loudly in the clamor, but have since,
apparently, become ashamed of the whole
affair. They” have discovered, wonderful to
relate, that the question of pugilisnl, like many
others, has two sides, and that the considere
tion of one of them has been almost totally
neglected. Having burned their fingers, they
have hopped around to a position from which
they get an entirely new view. “Why,” says
the Englishmen, rendered respectable and
serious by misfortune, “look at the morality
of the thing!” Precisely so; and when this
class not only thrives on the debasement of
public morals, but in many cases draws its
wealth from the public purse, he may add with
equal force, “look at the cost of the thing!”
The London papers protest with virtuous in
dignmion that the “sport” has so degenerated
in its attendant. associations, that a “gentle
man” can no longer witness a “mill,” either
with comfort to himself, or snt‘et y to his personal
property. The ungrateful pugilists, who owe
their freedom from arrest, and what little fame
they may. have acquired, to the generous sup
port and countenance of a few nobleman and
other wealthy patrons, have so far forgotten
themselves as to league with light-fingered
gentry for the purpose of picking said noble
men’s pockets on every convenient occasion.—
Now picking the pockets of an English lord is
equivalent to jerking the toil of the British lien;
for the nobleman is an excrescence of the body
politic. Accordingly, nnwonted vigilance is
excited, and the offenders are threatened with
nbandonment to the terrors of the law Lest
vengeance should descend too unexpectedly,
they are to be allowed a short period for re
pentance, and one more trial for reform. “By
this thread-hung all their hopes and fears.—
Bcil’r L7s}? announced that the final test would
be submitted on the 6th of November. At that
time two of these characters were to pummel
each other for the Championship. and unless
the utmost decorum waspreserved by the spec
tators, there was to be an end of prin-cfighting.
So the patrons of the ring have decreed.
It is to be hoped that the bruiecrs exhibited ‘
their colors as freely on the (sth of November as ‘
on any other day. It would he a pity not to 1
give their intelligent pahUUS a fair view ofthe 1
working of the system.—-Joumal of Commerce: ‘
'i‘nmnmxt: Ixmnxsr _u‘ A THEATRE.—-On
Tuesday evening, during the performance of'
Toyleur’s “ Lessons for Husbands,” at the St.
Louis Theatre, one of the favorite pieces of the
Florenees, a most pleasing little incident oc
currei, which brought. down the house, and
for a. few moments prevented the actors from
proceeding with the play. In the scene where
Mrs. Florence appears as the sailor boy, she
danced a naval hornpipe, holding in her bond
the star Spangled banner. As she concluded,
she tossed the flag to Mr. 1". He caught it,
and spreading it. carefully out, counting, audi
bly, the thirty-lhrce stars; then throwing up
his hands, exclaimed, with deep feeling,
“ Thank God, they are all there.” The attitude
and earnestness of the speaker, and the pecu
liar force of the remark, passer] like an electric
shock through the audience, and the house rose
en masse and applauded most vociferously.
Russm AND AUB:rmA.-—We read in :5 Warsaw
letter: ” It, is curious to observe the feeling
of hatred whieh exists here towards Austria.“
The same feeling exists in Germany. When
the Czar left St. Potorsburg for Warsaw he is
reported to have said to his aids-de-cnmp, so
as to counterbalance the bad impression caused
by the news of the intended interview with the
Emperor of Austria, ‘Gentlcmen, it has been
said that I have spontaneously invited the
Emperor of Austria. to Warsaw—it is not so;—
The Emperor Francis Joseph requested me to
meet him in that city, and I confined myself to
the reply that I should be happy to receive
him.’ I cannot vouch for the' truth of the
anecdote, but, at all events, it. faithfully rep
resents the feeling of the Russian army towards
Tm: WAR or Rucns Button—The New York
World of the 19th inst“, states that a negro,
named Charles Sanderson, was brought before
Justice Walsh, on Saturday, charged by J. J.
Lewis, a. conductor on one of the Sixth avenue
cars, with assault and battery. From the tes
timony it appears that the negro had entered
one of the cars especially set apart. for white
people. and taken a. seat. The conductor re
quested him to get. out upon the pltntform.——
This the negro refused to do, and added that
he was just as good as any of the white trash
in the car. Upon the conductor taking hold of
him to eject. him, he struck him a violent blow
on the head. When brought up before Justice
Walsh the accused stated that he was in a hurry,
and could not wait for the “ colored” car. He
was committed for examination.
Gommncs or um Wound—«M. Vemrd do
Sninte-Anne, a short. time ago, sent a paper to
the French Academy, on a project for estab
lishing a. belt of electric telegraphs all round
the world. We find, from an interview with
the author, that the trade of England with the
East amounts to 2,724,000,000 francs per
annum ; that of France with the same, to 403,-
300,000 francs; of Holland, to 295,222,000
francs; of Russia, to 150,000,000 frames; of
the Hanse Towns, to 14,199,000 frames; of
Spain and Portugal, to 15,875,000 francs; of
Belgium and Switzerland, to 48,726,000 francs;
of North America, Eastand West, 3,001,610,000
francs; and, lastly, of South America and the
West Indies, to 1,530,723.000 francs.
.THE VINTAGE IN Fume—Sad news to the
ynne drinkers. The vintage throughout France
is declared to be a “lamentable” one. At
Bordeaux the wine will be bad. except that
which the lowar classes consume. In cham
pagne all will be bad. In Burgundy things
are melancholy, but proprieotrs are trying the
aid of sugar—a hearing with small comfort in
it. Cognac gives wine sorely deficient in'alco
-1101, which deficency will not suit. the rocky
metropolis of brandy. Rousaillon and St.
Emilian are said to be capable of better things;
but Orleans is again unlucky. And the Rhine
and the Mosellc are swollen by the tears of the
proprietors, whose wine will be “scarcely
drinkable.” ‘
banks of Baltimore having resolved upon the
suspension of_ specie payments, in view of 'the
prevailing agitation, the purpose will go into
effect this morning. The proceeding itself
will not be regarded as any additional cause
of excitement, and will probably be temporary,
as a. settled policy prevails in political affairs.
Those who have heretofore derided the South,
and treated lightly both the provocation to
which it. has been exposed and its results, will
realize the fact that. the mere suspension of
trade with the North and the concentration by
the South of her interests within her own ter
ritm‘y, has caused already 9. very serious em
barrassment in the monetory elfoirs of the
North. These indications prove that the
strength is with the South and in her I'CSOM'CGS;
and identified with the South the interests of
our citizens will be secure, and our position at
once honorable and prosperous.——l}all. Sun,

the services of several physicians were called

Mr. John I'. Height, Supervisor of New Castle, West

H I was, two years ago, attacked with fever and ague,
which, notwithstanding the best medical advice, con
tinued. to sorely nfllict me for six tedious months; I be
came yellow as snil’ron, and reduced to skin and bone.
Medicine and ph sicisns were abandoned in despair. As
an experiment, {concluded to try a single dose of six
of Brnndreth’s Universal Vegetable Pills, on an empty
stomach, early in the morning. The first dose seemed
to arouse. all the latent energies of my exhausted frame.
I feared the worst—their purgutive effect wns different
from anything I had ever used or heard of. At length
this effect ceased. and I seemed lighter and breathed
freer. That evening I 'was indeed sensibly better and
slept soundly all night. The next day I followen the
same course, and continuDd to take the pills in this way
about three weeks, when I found myself entirely cured.
My health has been surprisingly good ever since."
