j„.s certain, however, that the vote agaimit
Lecompton will be much larger than wts
ever thrown on any occasion for angthiqi.
It is a most significant and overwhelming
tebuke. It is also a vindication of the
Free-State. party.. Some fun has b.cn
expended on the vote of 2 and 3. at seV

the post-office functionaries. Doubtless
their vote for Lecomfton - wen the stiph

will have uo such fear before their eves;
The election everywhere, so far as I
learn, has passed off quietly. The r 2.-
moval of the—:Surveyor-Genc:ral's
from this place to Sebraslia reduced the
"National Democratic" vote of this place
at least one-half. It is possible that this
Untimely removal may be sufficient cause
tor. the dissolution of the'Union.
Everybody is remarkably quiet- - hwil
