    The Prospcct Before us.
It is not to be supposed that - the elec
tion of Abraham Lincoln as President of
these United States—conspicuous and
glorious triumph as it, is—will at once
restore the country to political harmony
and quiet, though we are convitiCed that
the agitation raised in the South will
gradually and surely subside into peace.
We shall hear something, indeed, of the
secession and disunion projects with which
the ultia anti-Republicans in the . South,
and their servile organs in this City, late
ly attempted to frighten us into the aban
donment of our principles and our rights.
But we trust that whak talk we do hear
of this sort will end in no acts that are
not well considered and deliberately -re
pared. Vehement resolutions of South
ern State Legislatures in ' behalf of so
called Southern rights, calls for Southern
Cenventions, and even the meeting of the
same, may naturally influence, as hither
to, the local politics of the States which
take part in them, without, of necessity,
seriously affecting the integrity of the
Union. -
But the Republicans:must' prepare
themselves, to encounter something much
more formidable—a combination of all
the elements of the Opposition to nullify
so farts posSible 'the victory we insie-ob
thined,"and so to delay fora while, longer
theiti'refoims-in the: administration of
our Federal affairs. the m..dri objects which
the Republican party has in view. We
havo secured the Presidency, but the oth
er depariments.-of ihe.Federal
tratiun—the Senate and the House of
Representatives, not to mention the Ju
diciary—are still in the hands of our op
ponents. We have placed ourselves in a
position_to.prevent much evil in the vats
uSe and' abuse of Executive patronage and
authority.. We have given the politicians
of the anti-Republican party, both North
and South, to understand that the feel
ings, sentiments, instincts, and interests
Jf the great free-labor thnises are not to
be trampled upon with impunity. But
the party whose miscondat of our nation •
nl affairs called Republican.sin into exist
ence, and hint given it so rapid a growth,
that party still survives and, cut into as
it is, will still. strive, like a dissevered
snake; to reunite its disjointed fragments.
The conspiracy between the slave interest
of the Southern States and the dentemorru
ism and flunkeyi.s.in of the North. To
engross the administration of the Fede
tat Government, and to reader the free
labor element bs nugatory in the Union
as it is in the Slave States, Will be renew
ed amkvigorously - pressed. The great
victory we have just achieved is but one
step—no doubt a most important one—
toward the thorough scrol') of the ad
ministration of our national affairs and
toward putting the question of Slavers
in the Territories at rest forever. Labor
and struggle, Wisdom and firmness will
still he -necessary to bring that comm•
maim about.—K. Y. Tribune, 9th.
A POPPED CIIESNUT.—Senator Ches-1
nut resigned his seat in the 'United
States Senate on Saturday. The report
states that the "reading of the letter was
)ollowed by applause." This, was rather
an equivocal compliment. It certainly
indicated that the members of the legis
lature were not depressed by the pros
pect of losing his services at Washington :
or at the creation of 'a vacancy there for
some one else to l'ost,

c Mr. Douglas was rotten-egged at
Montgomery, Alabama, on Friday pre
ceding the Presidential election. Throe
eggs were thrown at him and his party
by the Breckenridgers, as they were en
tering the hotel; one of the eggs striking
Judge Douglas on bis bat and bespat
tering the face of Mrs. Douglas, who was
leaning on -his arm. This is southern
manners illustrated—high-toned, aristo
cratic gentility exemplified by its loudest
sticklers.
Allegheny County gives Lincoln
10,000 majority, the largest ever given
for any candidate whatever. Lancaster
rolls up 7,000, Bradford 5,000, Tioga
3,500, Lycoming 1,500. Everywhere in
the old Keystone the majorities are in
the same proportion as those above.
California and. Oregon cannot, of course,
be beard from for -two weeks, but it is
presumed they will both give Lincoln a
majority. Should this be case the - eke
-1°1.31 vote fur Lincoln will reach 176, giv
ing him a clear majority 24 in the clec 7
twal college.
)o.f their President proves true to his
oath of office and sees that " the laws be
faithfully executed,7 and treats the South
ern people as though they were entitled
to the same regard as other sections of
the Union, then the v'ry heart and soul
of his northern supporters will leave him.
The heart of &publicans is caucered, and
the party is as sure to die as any indi
vidual would be under similar dream
stances.—Clinton Democrat.
We propose Oast our President shall be
the President of the Union, and not as
yours_ bas been,, the President of the
South only. Mr. Lincoln will never,
however, truckle to the behests of a mi
norictut the expense of the majority—if
he is,partial at all it will be in. behalf of
"the greatest good of the grentei -
_num
ber." "The very bears andsoul of his
-northernist4porte'ril " 'nerd find fault
with him for treating " the southern peo
ple as though they were entitled to the
saute regard as other . sections of the
Union." They do not look for him to
give sectional precedence of. State rights
.—they only ask that he shall be , truly
national,' and they firmly believe he
will. Your fears for the dissolution of
the Republican party on that account are
in keeping with your fears for the disso
lution of the Ucion on account of his
election;
As foi. the cancered heart of the Re
publicans; that is all in your mind's eye,
Dieffy. That cancer has a wonderful
healthy look, just now, in the way of over
half 4-13:filion Republican majority in the
Union It leeks, as
_.though woe - 'can
cared ilon't it. It looks , as though that
cancer was making sad havoc in the left
breast of modern' Democrary=it spreads
wonderfully'.there. It has eaten the
heart all up, and left nothing of you but

for President.
1,024 Republican llajorily
Below we give the official canvass for
Presidential electors in this County. The
BellEveritt ticket received one vote in
the whole County, and that in Couders
port. A plucky fellow is Joe. It will
be seen that the majority is increased
229 over that for Curtin, and the whole
vote 41. A large number of democrats
did not go to election at all, some even
going away from the polls without voting.
It is estimated that some 200 voters were
not out at all, some of them Republicans.

Millon on Modern Democracy.
, • Milton .was the great politician and a
no inconsiderable statesman of Cronmpll's
time; in fact, he was :the balauce-wheel
of the Commonwealth: Ile entertained
a suprome centempt or hatred for adinin
istrative corruption, engendered,t o doubt
by the experiences he' had with t - heroyal
mal-adniinistration of CbarleSl. He was
• -
bold and, indignant in his- dentin
,
tiation of that monarch and his bordello
,
followers, and never hesitated, ;n contro
versies with their appointed literary
champions, to meet out fulland exact Criti
cism of their corrupt practices.
But his reflections on those corruptions
and their tendency were not intended for
that present necessity only--they were
for all time; and we make an extract 'from
his." Character of Cromwell," addressed
to the people of England, which we ye
gard as pertinent interrogative portraiture'
of modern democracy.- The test k easily •
applied to the present condition of the
national administration :
"E'er Who would vindicate Tour right of (
unrestrained suffrage, or of choosing what
representative you liked best; merely that you
might elect the creatures of your own faction,
whoever they might be, or him, however small
might be ,his worth, who would give you the I
most lavish feasts, and enable you to drink I
to the greatest excess ? Thus not wisdom
and authority, but turbulence and gluttony,
would soon exalt the vilest miscreants from
our taverns and our brothels,
from our towns
and villages, to the rank and dignity•of 'sun
mots. For, should the management or the
republic be entrusted to persons to whom no
one would willingly entrust the management
of his private concdrns ? and the treasury of
the State be left to the care of those who have
lavished their own fortunes in an infutnous
prodigality? Should they have the chatge
of the public purse, which they would soar',
convert into a private, by their unprincipled
peculations ? [ Vide Howell. Cobb's late pan...
is I.] Are they fit to be the legislators of a
whole people who themselves know not what
law, what reason, what right and wrong,
what crooked and straight, what licit and il
licit means? who think that nll power con
sists in cutrage, all dignity in the parade of.i
insolence? [vide, Barksdale, l'uor, etc.] who
neglect every other consideration for the cor
rupt gratification of their friendships, or the ,
prosecution of their resentments? [ride,
Brooks, Keitt, Rhett, kc.] who disperse their
own relations. and creatures through the I
provinces, for the sake of levying taxes and
confiscating goods; men, for the greater part,
profligate and vile, who buy up for themselves'
what they pretend to expose to sale, who thus
collect an exorbitant mass of wealth, which . '
they fraudulently divert from the public ser
vice;
who thus spread their, pillage through
the country, and in a moment emerge from
penury and rags, to a state of splendour and I
of wealth? [rick the Kansas imbroglio—
Dr. All and Russell & Co., Wendell, ctc.]— .
Who could endure such thievish servants,
such vice-gerents of their lords? Who could
believe that the masters and patrons of a ban
ditti could be the proper guardians of liberty?
or who would suppose that he should ever be
made one hair more Dee by such a setof pub
lic functionaries (though they might amount
to five hundred in this manner elected from
the counties and boroughs), when among
them who are the very guardians of liberty,
and to whose custody it is committed, there
must be so ninny, who know not either hair
to use or enjoy liberty, who either understand
the principles or merit the possession?"

Of course we do not intend by quoting
the above to pronounce all the folkwcrs
of the administration--for there are hon
orable exceptions even here in Potter—
as "banditti"; but we ask democrats to
read our extract from Milton, and see
displayed in it what they were asked to
endorse their votes of the Gth of No
vember last. Milton, possibly had an eye
looking two hundred years in advance of
: his time, when be penned that pragraph.
South Carolina Ventelit.
The great little nullification State of
South Carolina has at last " found a fit
occasion " to give vent to her loog-eon
fined revolutionafy spleen, which has
been bottled up ever since Gen. Jackson
corked it up in 1833, but which has an
nually, at the ides of October or Novem
ber, fermented and steamed out through
such girublet-holes as Rhett, Gist, Keitt,
Benham, Ashmore, Butler, etc., until
now the cork has popped out, and the
thing is likely to have full vent. Un
fortunately for, South Carolina, there is
no Jackson at the helm of State to cork
the bottle up' again—unfortunately for
the credit of the country, we have . a Bu
chanan to encourage the fermentation by
his masterly iaactivity—unfortunately for
Buchanan, his cabinet and bosom friends
are largely coreposed of inun favciring the
secession movement, because the majority
of the people in the Union desire to rule.
Being the creatures of a minority, they
willingly serve the basest purposes of
_those who hare created them. "The
Pre§ident will resist unllificationArtit'nbt
secession;" says a telegram' from Wash=
log* to the Charleston Coyrier.
Carolina does not nullify, slio only secedes
by the resignation - of the Federal officers
in -I;er - conrts'!and ports.: and tb,usi Bu
chanan avoids the performance or. his
constitutional duty.
We are not sure that a State has', the
right to secede, and it certainlylooks rea
sonable that having become a 'jtiiitt part
ner in, a perpettial partner/Alp, it: is, .de-.
pendent on the will of the majority of the
partners. Viewing the matter in flip
light; the. President as the executive
agent . of the whole i.s bettild to 'resist, the
dis-MemLertnent of the firm, using', the
means provided by his Sovereign employ
ees to suppress insubordination in mem
berships. Nullification' is virtually 'se
cession, and rice rersa—' for it is impossi
ble to, practice either one except as a de
pending contingency of the other.—
Therefore, to resist the one is to prevent
the other as a result:
, •
But the
,question here arises What is .
the :character Of the 'provocation of. South
Corolinafor secession Ilas il:e Union
violated any of her State rights? -Cer
tainly not. What.then i is the provopa
,
tion ? = Why, a majority have exercised
their constitutional right. of choosing ,an
administrator of the laws, which .choice
is adverse toThe will of the. minority!
South Carolina resists the Constitution,
and tie imperative duty :of 'President is
emphatic and prompt aciion to bring her
into s,ul3jectioti.—peaceably - if he can, for
cibly if he must.
'We have been talking of secession only
as a contingent—it has - pot yet culmi
nated, nor will it. The conservative in
tereits of the South - are too powerfurand
dependent on the :Union to submit to
a hasty precipitation into so direful a qi.
lemipa,—and what is more ; they comprise
the real strength and war-making means
of . the South.
.BvPo already this conser
vative clement is denouncing the seces . -
sion movement in unmeasured terms in
their business - correspondence, 'and pro
nouncing its . leaderelo be'selfish and am
bitious disturbers of. the public welfare.
There will be a kw weeks eiffernientation
among the disunion orators, - ",when the
bile will have disgorged,. and the conser•
native feeling will prevail, and all will go
. ,
on in harn►onv.
--Georgia and Albania are also-s:ight
ly afflicted with the disunion mania; but
it is not FO virulent as in South Carolina;
is is more conservative in its tone, though
more revolutionary in its' development,
and confined to the few of Yancey's stripe.
Goy. Brown of Georgia, unlike Goy. Gist
of South Carolina,. does not recommend a
Southern Convention, but, in his special
message on the subject, advises a system
of reprisals upon the manufactures of un
frieiidly Northern States. We extract from
an abstract of his message :
,!•lle recommends the enactment of IaWS
authorizing the seizing of such amount of
money or property of any citizen cf such of
fending and faithless• State for indemnifying.
the losses of the citizens of Georgia.. Ile re•
commends legislation to drive, the manufac
tured articles of such offending States from
Georgia. Ile says Georgia has the
.right as
soon as 'Northern goods are, brought into
Georgia, to tax theni as site dCems pro Per—
. advises the passage of a law taxing goods
and merchandize twenty-five per centum, in
troduced after the first -of January, if manu
factured in or brought from - Massachusetts,
Vermont; Michigan, Maine, Rhode
New-York, 'Wisconsin, or other unfriendly
States, and the tax to be remitted when the
unfriendly legislation is repealed. -Should
such legislation prove ineffectual he recom
mends the repeal of all parts of, the penal and
civil code, protecting the lives,, liberties, and
properties of the citizens of the States where
such unfriendly laws exist. Ile says, in my
opinion the time for bold and decided action
has arrived and he is unworthy the confidence
of the people of Georgia, who refuses to vin
dicate her. 'honor at any cost, and maintain
her Constitutional rights at every haiard.—
lie legislation recommended will
tend to,strengthen rather than weaken the
ties of the Union of the States. It will destiny
sectional controversy, and narrow down the
issue to a contest between individual States.
He says, if the ,Legisint ure flats to enact laws,
he recommends that the people should rise in
their might and at the ballot-box demand
.their - enaclrhent: The Governor etiteftains no
dohbt of the right of each State to (*hie and
to act for'herself, so long as all the States
abide in good faith by the .constitutional oh-
h.talons. No State can withthaw from
to
Union without being guiity - of bad faith to the I
others. Any violation of the compact re
lieveS all parties."
In Alabama the feeling finds utterance
through the presses. Galling for the organ
izing of companies of ..tuinu te Men," and in
unfriendly treatment of resident north.
