The eleetioil LENIUEL Tope, the

magnificent triumph . , ; over which the
friends of sound prineixles may well re
joict man of acknowledged ability
and eloquence, he will take high personal
rank tunong the &Anent MCI% of the day
and reflect credit upon his constituency.
As a mcniber of Congress we may look
forward with confidence to his political
course. He will not be found among the
cringing adherents oNhe corrupt admin
istration of Franklin Pierce. He will at
all tittles, by his voice and his vote, op
pose the extension of Slavery over terri
tory now free. He will stand nobly up
for the ,protection of. American Nindustry
and will contend :with unyielding firm
ness for the only cafe American 1)011'4 , of
watching jealously cur free institutions,
and confining the rule of our

Anti Nebraska Democrats will rally a for-'

COATGRATBLATIONS FROM ABROAD
The defeat of J. Ellis Bonham, the
wholesale caltunniator of the AWhigs in
his series of voluminous addresges as
chairno of the Locofoco State Commit
tee, seems to afford the Most
factiott ro our friends iii other distriets.- , L
The. defeat of Bonham is the fihishing
stroke of the great triumph; and is a re
sult which will be fret at Washington.—
Although we have no disposition to exult
ewer a_ fallen foe, we must say that no
man more richly deserve defeat than
Bonham. Not satisfied with the vile
calumnies heaped Upon the Whigs in his
verbose addresses, his labored eulogies
and fulsome flattery of foreigners in his
public speeches during the canvass were
if any thing still more disgusting and out
rageous. But by this course he himself
was the greatest sufferer. ,So grossly did
lie outrage public opinion at every public
meeting he attended in both Cumberland
and Perry counties, by his offensive dis
paragement of American, citizens, that his
insulted auditors could not restrain their
expressions of indignation. To none
more than . himself, in fact, do we wife the
thorough rousing of that deep American
feeling, which by the Voice, of its om
,nipotent will has swept him and his co
throw is one to be remembered h
cal demagogues forever
From among many notices of

counties, we take the following froin the

— CIiMISERLA ND CONORESSIONAL DIS
TRICT.—The friends of Republicism and

this district. Bonham; the man who "de

ings, and appealedfroin their secret coun
cils, traitorous machinations :end blasphe
mous oaths, to the masses of the people,"
has been overwhemingly defeated. TODD,
the American candidate, carries Cumber
land by one thousand and Perry by over
nine hundred, and is elected. A thous

"old Mother Cumberland" and her daugh

The defeat of Bigler in this County is
unprecedented, & the majority of 800 for

breaking through they have carried their

then played several appropriate airs, after
which loud `cries were made for Mr. Tudd.►
He appeared in compliance with the call anti
deliVered a short, but eloquent and" stirring
address, which elicited enthusiastic applause.
After duly ackuowlediug the distinguished
mark of popular friendship and confidence
evinced hy his triumphant election to Con
gress, he proceeded to touch briefly on seve
ral topics connected with the canvass. The
Nebraska bill, with its wanton violation of a
sacred compact betweelitle North and South
—the mischievous schemes of Slavery ex
tension, so openly proclaimed in the last ses
sion, and which threaten, if sucee'sJful, to es-
tabliSh the blighting curse of slaNlcry on the
vast expanse of our yet free territory—were
denounced in unmeasured terms, which left
no doubt of the speaker's feelings or opinions
on these subjects. Of that other great prin
ciple, dear to every AMerican heart,—the
right of mericans./0 rule America—he de
sired to say that he was with them heart and
soul ! As the speaker dwelt with fervid_ elo
quence upon the triumph, the principles and
the aims of the American party in the recent
contest, the enthusiasm of his audience was
excited to the highest pitch, and they gave
vent to their feelings by elteer tiller (icer of,„ ,
applause: At the conclusion of Mr. Team
speech three times three !rheers were given
for each of the gallant counties. of Perry,
York and Cumberland, and: thi:Wfor JAMa

The procession next marched to the residence
of Prof. O. H. TIFF.OO% After 4 serenade
by the Rand, Prof. Tiffany was called out
by the crowd and responded in an eloquent
speech, which was rapturously applauded.--
The procession next marched to the residence
of the Rev. Mr. ltxEst; on Pomfret street,
...Where there elis again music and a SpeetfC,
from Mr. Reese, who exhorted •their to go
forward in the support of American princi
ples, in the full confidence of a permanent
triumph. The procession soon after quietly .
dispersed, the whole proceedings having been
conducted in an orderly manner.
