CHAPIN HALL ELECTED.
In Monday - Evening's edition of the N.
Y. Tribune we find the following item of
interest in 'regard to the election. From
the figures below and others before us of
a reliable l l'eharacter we make . Hall's ma
jority 787: •
"We have a letter from Warren, Pa.,
dated Friday, 15th inst., which leaves no
room for-doubt that Chapin Hall, Repub
lican, is elected to Congress from the
XXltith District, running out James L.
Gillis, Lecompton Dem. This letter gives
the official vote of Warren County--Hall
1,765, Gillis 969—Hall's' majority 796,
or 71 more than we made it this morning.
It also states that Venango ills given
Hall 400 majority, which settles the
question, even though it should . be mis
taken In its report that Elk (Gillis's own
county) has given Hall 50 majority in
stead' of 140 for Gillis, as was reported
via Pittsburg. Suffice it that Chapin
Hall is elected, so that buetwo Lecomp
ton men (Florence and .Dirrunick) go
back to Con gresi from Pennsylvania,' with
two anti-Leconipton _friends of the Ad

THE CrENERAL RESULT.
The Trit4de of Monday says of the
general, result in this State :
" The victors in PENNSYLVANIA have
ceased computing their majorities on the
State ticket, they being so large that a
matter of Five or Ten Thousand more or
less is no object. A table of official and
reported returns -from thirty-six CoUnties,
now before us, pits John M. Read, for
Supreme Court, 35,335 ahead—Berko,
Westmoreland, Northampton, Columbia,
Luzerne, Montgomery,' and nearly all the
old Democratic strongholds, being includ
ed, as well as many of those of the Oppo
sition, but; not including Erie, Crawford,
Warren, Mercer and Somerset. Judging
from these, we infer that the majority for
Read in the whole State is as likely to
reach as to fall below 40,000 1"
