Seven years ago,' every office Was beld by a reg ular democrat. The same diligence ; in scattering tho trgth among the people, will .produes the same result in every county in the State. So we exhort our friends in oth er sections, to open the next campaign at once. As semi as the people understand what the Slave Power is doing,:they will ftbaodon the party that sustains it . . To the friends of Freedom in this county we offer our congratulations on the glorious work they have accomplished; 'and we trust they will press forward, until every apologist for Slavery and its aggressions, shall be converted, or,—put t 9 Sham.. The Oci!Obey poetions. The result of the election for. State of fii.vrs has proved as we were led to sup pose it would by the apathy evinced by our friends throughout the State, during' the entire campaign. But very little ef fort was made, except by Judge Wilmot, to secure any other result, and Border Ruffianism has triumphed once more,— Wm. F. Packer, together with the bal- 1 ance of the hunker State ticket, is elect- , ed by a majority ranging from 25,000 to! 80,000 votes. The defaet is not from the want of strength in the Republican party, bur from neglecting to exercise that strength. Therefore the defeat is not fatal nor very lasting. There -is- A great plenty of the-Republican sentiment in Pennsylvania, but time is required to fix it upon the result of anelection. The result of the election in Ohio, on , the same day, is still iO doubt, both par-I ties claiming the victory, It is 'so close however, that the official canvass alone will determine it. We are much surpris ed at this vote in Ohio,.in view of the fact that the anti-slavery sentiment ofi that State is generally presumed' o be in vincible; therefore, with a positive free Boiler as the standard-bearer of the Re-! publicans, we regarded it as almost int possible for a Hunker to make even a close I run upon Gov. Chase. - But it is even so, land the cause is to us a mystery. I From lowa we have very few returns ; ' I )hut we are inclined to think the Shans-1 (writs have triumphed. . In Minnesota, the Republicans have elected their Governor S and a majority of ' . the Legislature. This is a victory over' iwhieh we can heartily exult--inasmuch , as the People have thus endorsed the ac tion` of the Republican members of the Constitutional Convention, and rebuked the Border-Ruffian efforts of ex-Gov. Gor man and his prototypes to fasten a pro= slaveryconstitution upon them. - In Kansas, there is no longer any doubt of the election of Marcus J. Parrot ; the Free-State candidate for Delegate to Con-; I gress, but the BOraer Ruffiaiss claim al majority of one in the Council ; and three in. the lower House of the Legislature.— We are, however, inclined to think that' their majority is fraudulent if at all. Gov. , Walker will doubtless manufacture a ma jority.for them, even though the voice of the people be different. We hope the people are triumphant and reason victo rious, The, Money Troubles. There is great distress all over the coun try and likely to be more. But we judge there is less in this County, and less clan ger of its ;increase, than in most parts of the country., There are many reasons for this good fortune to us, which we will not stop to enumerate, because we desire ;low to aid iniimproving our condition, The fallowing remarks of the N. Y. Tribune, though not as applicable to us, as to 04 iuhubitanta of large . cities, are worthy of serious attention, • . "What shall I do to mitigate the pro veiling distress and restore the reign. of Industry and Prosperity ?" is a question no* in' order: Thousands are asking it, and Millions ought to be. We answer : "1.. Pay your debts,..to the. very utmost of your ability. Do not make the genet-. al collapse an excuse for needless-unfaith fulness to your creditors, since that is to protract the agony and mervase its fieso lotions; jf every one who - owes -a debt Which ha can pay, were to pay, at once, a general feeling of relief would instantly diffuse itself, which might inaugurate the desired reliction.

As our hunker friends are .trying very hard to make out that 'Bnehanau is doing something for free Kansas ;we will call th° attention of the peOple to what lie has done. He has continued every Border Ruffian in office, and has removed the only Free State Democrat *horn President Pierce retained in office - in Kansas. Does that look bite making Kansas a Free State ? But ;more than this. He has sent one sixth part of the entire army of the United States to Kan. sas—for what ? To enforce oppressive enactments, placed upon the Statute Book by the emissaries of Missouri. Now what excuse can Any defender of Buchanan make for this conduct. Says the t lanai Era: "Is he sworn to support the laws of, agy Territory.? simple oath is ; to support the Constitution of the United I States. Suppose he have reason to be-1 lieve that the Constitution was violated! by the enactment, of such laws, what isj his duty? To examine into them—first, their nature; secondly, their origin. If' he becomes convinced that they were pass. ed' , by a body elected in' violation of a great constitutional act, and therefore legitimate, or that they are inconsistent with rights guarantied by the Constitu-j tion, what, then is his duty ? - To enforce I them ? That would be to violate his oath i of office.. His firat duty into the Consti-j tutiun of-the ;United States; and fidelity! -to that requires of him a careful examin -1 ation of any law he is called upon to en-1 force. We have no evidence that he pur-; sued this course in relation to Kansas.-- On the contrary, he blindly recognises; what exists, as rightfully existing : All; that -is alleged concerning the violation of!, ,the organic act, in the election of what claims to be the Legislature, lie' totally ignores; and instead of construing his oath 'of office 4.° impose on him the obli.l gation to recognise that act, construes ; it ; as imposing on the duty of maintain- 1 ing any Territorial law, so-culled, .wheth er in accordance with that act or not. "No wonder 'that the "fire-eaters" are satisfied with this position. It is all,they j could ask. Let them anywhere usurp! power, and establish the usurpation; and 1 on the principle of this New Haven th..] ter, President Buchanan ; stands commit-1 wil to maiutaig it. All an unlawful en-1 tziprise needs, to secure Federal support, I is snow "We hope the people who love justice, no matter what their pecuniary distrelss es, will be careful not to overlook these, things. 1 "But this is not the worst.
