THE RESULT OF THE ELECTION.
The returns of the electio& in this
county, so far as received, show the com
plete overthrow of the American ticket
and the triumph of the Democrats. Our
sympathies having been to a large degree
with •American principles; although
invincibly opposed to the odious secret
organization, we do not rejoice over this
result. It is not - however unexpected.
Our readers will bear us testimony that
' from the very opening of the canvass we
steadily warned the leaders of the A nier-
ican party, who so arrogantly & presump
tuously thrust aside the alliance of • the
Whigs, of the uder folly and infatuation
of expecting to triumph as an exclusively
American organization. We warned
them, 'by the experience'of the past, that
the American party was entiroly pow
erless without the aid of the whigs, and
that as an independent Organization it
had never won a victory. Our voice was
unheeded. They chose to work on in•
their secret conclaves—excluding Whigs
from all participation or fellowship, and
to go into the field with a ticket unsatis
many of their own friends and .
they have noW to deplore the result.—
But we have no room for further co❑
The returns have not come in very
clearly, but enough is known to ensure
the success of the whole democratic tick-.
et, though it is possible there is a small
majority for Nicholson, the Fusion Can
didate for Canal Commissioner. In the
Carlisle district the democratic majority
is about 100—last year Pollock had that
majority. In the Newville district Ni
cholson has 2 majority, while there is 60
majority for Bowman, democrat, for sher
iff. In Shippensburg, once the Whig
banner district, there is a majority of 10
for Riley, American, for sheriff, and
probably a better majority for Nicholson
—in Mechanicsburg the democratic
sheriff has 82 majority, while Nicholson
has 44—in Dickinson the democratic
ticket has 54 majority, and in Silver
Spring the democratic majority is 180.
East Pennsboro is also reported to have
given a democratic majority.' Upper
and Lower Allen, Hampden and Monroe
are not yet heard from. The American
majorities they gave last year, however,
would not defeat the democrats. We
judge from the returns received that
Arnold Plunier, the democratic candi
date for Canal Commissioner, has over
100 majority and that the democratic
county ticket is successful by over 200
Of the Whig vote we shall. have no
definite return until Friday. Several
hundreds of them stood by parts of
their own ticket=many more voted the
Aiuerican ticket to make thdlr votes ef
fective against the democrats—a small
number may have voted for parts of the
democratic ticket—while a considerable
crowd of them did not come to the elec
tion al all. The American defeat is
attributable in no small degree to defec
tion in the American ranks.
THE GENERAL RESULT.
From other counties the returns are not flat
tering to Nietolsons ., prospects. In York the
whole democratic t icket is elected. In Lan
caster Nicholson's 'majority is a little over
1000. In Dauphin part of the Democratic
ticket is elected. In Philadelphia the result
is said to be doubtful, and in Allegheny the
democrats have triumphed.
• ser Another move has been made in be•
half of Pasamore Williamson in Philadelphia.
Reoult not yet known.
THE EASTERN WAR.
We publish on our first page a graphic
account of the bloody struggle between
the Allies and Russians which terminated
in the conquest of Sebastopol. Now
that this great point has been accomplish
ed the papers are full of speculations as
to the effects of the victory. Of the de
spatches of the Allied Generals,says the
North. Amcrican..that of Pelissier con
tains the most important and startling in
formation. According to this, four thou-
sand cannon, 50,000 balls, besides round
shot and large quantities of powder and
a variety ofother valuable materials, had
been left behind by the Russians. Two
of the principal forts of the south-side—
fort Nicholas, which counted 200, and
fort Quarantine,'6o gums—had not been
destroyed. It is the more difficult to ac
count for the fact of the cautious Russian
general abandoning to his enemies these
important structures and materials, as
his retreat was by no means of such a
hurried nature as the Paris correspodent
of the Times represents it, when he de
clares that "a panic took complete posses
of the army at the appearance of the Al
lies in the Malakoff," and that their
"hasty retreat" was occasioned by the
fear that their pursuers "would fire the
bridge and make them prisoners:' Gen
eral Simpson's despatch tells us that the
French carried the Malakoff at noon on
the eight of September. The panic can
not have been very great, as afteer this
important event the Russians repulsed
the attack of . the British upon the ad
joining work, the Redan, as well as sev
eral subsequent ones by the French, and
keqt their position until night. when un
der the cover of darkness they crossed '
the bay. This exhibits all the features
of a cool and predetermined movement.
That this result was fully anticipated by
Gortsehakoff, appears evident from the
ingenious measures devised and executed
before he gave the Allies a chance to re
sume their fifth bombardment- The re
cent diversion upon the rear of the posi
tion of the Allies, on the Traktir Bridge,
was undertaken with a view of delaying
the assault, till his floating bridge to the
north side was completed. The object
was effected. The mancevre was judi
cious, and reflects credit on the skill of
the Russiqn commander. As to the
question whether he will be able to hold
the position of the. north side, the late
news furnish no reliable data. All that
has transpired on the subject amounts to
nothing but surmises. It is extremely
doubtful whether the forts on the north
side contain sufficiently ample stores of
ammunition and materials, workshops for
the repair of artillery, and all the numer
ous establishments which a protracted
seige requires. it is also doubtful
whether the communication with Sim
pheropol, upon which depends the provi
sioning of the garrison and of the corps
on the Tchernaya, can be maintained now
that the fall of the south side has relieved
the whole force of the Allied army.
However this may be, whether the seige
will be prosecuted or the Russians retreat
into the interior, the most important
question for the moment has found its
solution in the words of the Czar to the
King of Prussia: “Russia never makes
peace after a disaster." Thus the pre
diction that the fail of Sebastopol, far
frojn terminating the war, would, in ef
fect, be the opening scene of a still more
terrible drama, appears to have become a
reality. What the ultimate consequences
will be of this struggle for life or death
between the West and East is impossible
to foretell; but it is probable that it will
shako the old world to its very centre,
and cause the fall of many a tottering
Hon J. W. Foster, of Massachusetts,
has sent in his resignation as President
of the State Council of Americans. In
his letter, he speaks of the subserviency
of the National Convention to the Slave
power, and says ho can henceforth do no
battle under its disgraced banner. He
oasts his lot with the Republican party,
and w4l it-will stand - or fall.

THE OCTOBER ELECTIONS.
Four States hold their general elec
tions during the present month, viz :
Louisiana, Oct. 5; Maryland, Oct. 7 ;
Ohio, Oct. 8; Pennsylvania, Oct. 8.
Maryland and Lonisiana will elect
their delegations to the Thirty-fourth
Congress, which will complete the list of
members of the House of Representa
tives, except the five members of Missis
sippi, who will be chosen ou the sth of
November. In all the states holding
their elections this month, Legislatures
are to be chosen, and on that of Pennsyl
vania will devolve the election of a U
rited States Senator in place of James
Cooper, whose term expired with the last
Congress, the last Legislature bitvitig
failed to perform that-duty.
THE LIQUOR LAW.
The operation of the new Liquor Law,
which went into effect on the Ist inst.
seems to have caused no excitement in
Philadelphia. In the 6th, 9th, 10th and
24th Vztds, particularly, the Ledger says
a majority of the establislimen - ts have
closed or at least do not openly sell liquor.
But three or four ar.rests have been made
of violators of the law. A large number
of eating saloons it is said now supply
their customers with coffee and tea, in
!stead of intoxicatin: , Liquors. In Bead
" ing and Lancaster the lager beer shops
are reported to have generally closed.—
Cumperland county the law has not
yet gotie into effect, the tavern keepers
gencraßy, having taken out their licenses
before the passage of the law, and gnSe
quently have a right to sell liquor as usual
until April next:
The returns of the legislative erections
will soon determine whether the law can
be sustained or not
COLUMBUS, Oct. 7.—Six
nothings and two know-nothings are sup
posed to be cleated to Congress. John
son, dew., is re-elected Governor by over
four thousand votes over both candidates.
The Congressmen believed to be elected
are Steward, Crawford, Warner, Lump
kin, Cobb and Stephens, anti-k. n.'s, and
Trippe and Foster k. n.'s. The major
ity for Stephens is 2,657. The legisla
ture is democratic. In the 7th district,
where Foster, k. n., is reported to be
elected, the democratic gain is 1,176.
KANZAS POLITICS.—There is more
excitement in Kansas and more trouble
Gov Reeder has consented to
run as the Anti-Slavery candidate for
Congress, and that party have selected
the time for the election one week later
than the Legis!ature fixed. Therefore
there will b two election days, and two
Delegates elected, the validity of which
must 'be decided by Congress. Coy.
Reeder accepted the - nomination 'in a
patriotic speech, which was entliusiastiely
received by the congregated huncreds.
