F H 1 1) A V M 0 II N I NO, NOVEMBER 24. Tho result of the New York election eccma tn have como upon I lie President ri'iid hi? confidents nt Washington, like a iccl if thunder from a cloudless sky. Cntnbrt'lcng had assured him thai nil uos well in the state, nnd even endorsed the city. The first intelligence therefore, was oliy tiling but comforting; but this the Olobo got over by cursing the banks, the merchants, the aristocracy, &c. nnd, finally thanked th Lord that "the city was not tbc whole Plato." But, nlns, how 6Urcly do the hopes of the wicked perish! The cry was etill "they come," the conquering Whigs. Counties, districts, on Umpire lost! Bring me no more reports nil is lost ! cried tbc successor to his predecessor. "A little more civent, good apothecary ;" nnd mantling up his face, he curs'd, in Dutch ! The groat result will tinyo a great effect iiton tlio politics of tho country, I lie Pieshlcnt nnd llie Cat l net. It is now hclicied line, lli.it Mr. Van Hu ron in hia next message, which wc shall have in three wcck, will sav iiotliin? of ihe finances of I lie country, but tii it lie lias l.iiil nil on Congics in his l.iet message, anil that no.v his rlu'cf otj:ct will do to FpciiK ol our uiimc.lln nnd foreign iin.iirs. is little ns posihlu will he said of llie Sub-Treasury scheme, which, without u doubt, is now nban doned. The nlav of Air Van liiiicn will now be to coax the people hack, The Globe, nnd the Kendall clan he d.irc not throw ovei board, however, if lie Would. The only nnxicty that Mr. Van Huron full lire viotu to llie election, was nboiil the cily. lie and Ms friends never dreamed of loosing the State, Confident of earning that, the Globe was directed to open its batteries upon Senator TnllmailgA, who, with all the Oonservnliies, were In lie sacrificed on ton L.oco Foco rack. Mr Cainbrebuii has writ ten here repeatedly (hat ihcic was no danger : nnd tfter the union of the Tammany and (he Loco Foco parly in Ihis cily, lie wrote that lie was almost sure of of carrying that. Judge ihen, wli.it must have been Air. Van Ihiren's terrible disappointment. Mr Van Burcn begins lo feet that the insane course he lias pursued, despite of t tin counsels mid warning of the more rational members of Ilia parly, li.is wrought nil the mischief; and deeply he re fuels this couisc. lie is, sifter nil, but a puny flower that ran stand nothing lint the summer breeze; not lie, tho tree lhat is trained and strength nncd, nnd made lo strike its tools deeper by wrest ing with the winter storm ! nounccd as nn heretic and federalist, nnd Ircrtucnuv 'Happens inai incm '7'" ...i... i. !,!,,.

The tubicon is passed, and it would eucin almost impossible lo avoid serious consequences. Much excitement prevails throughout the province, and few men wc find arc at all sanguine as to the result. Already a number of tho patriot leaders bavo been arrested on charge of treason, and warrants arc out for a number of others tt'bo it is Paid have left the Province. Wc Understand however, that the persons ar rested have been admitted lo bail ; and it is olso reported that considerable numbers of tbe Tapineau men have signified a desire to return to their loyality.

"But nil our rcaoning and expostulation wcro in vain, our voico fell upon ears a heavy nnd dull as death. Our warnings wero disregarded our counsel disdained. Now, that the sceptre has departed from Judah whore is the tnnntlo of tho prophets, and of what value are tho words of the oracles?" Much as this means, what follows hns still more meaning: 'In the decisions of tho democracy of numbers, wo "absolutely acquiscc." 1 lie two great ontngonist powers of the Jack Bon nnd Whig parties, Becm to have broken up. A new disorganization is likely to ensue. "Jt is not our business or purpose to dictate, bu. lo reflect the senti ments of those represent." Wo therefore do not undertake lo chalk out a course for the democracy to rally again upon, but our belief is, that the two great ban ners hereafter will lead n conservative party on one side, ond the destructives on the other." Tho self styled "parly organs," will bo taught by this adverse political tempest, a lesson which they will not readily forgot. Tho admonition however has come too lato fur thetn; tho revolution is past, nnd they have nothing left but unavailing pen itence and the 6ilent gnawings of the "Remorse, that comes too late !"

Indian trails had been reported within fourteen miles of that place. The steamboat Santce had just returned from Volusia, to which place she had conveyed Col. Gardner's command. Gen.

It happens however that in tno laic ciecuuu, um wmim forty arc chosen, nnd what is more remark able, nnd even unprecedented since the formation of partias, the choice lias rosuncu in all the districts, thirteen in number, in favour of tho Whig candidates, by decided inninritifK. Yet thcro was a contested election in everv district, ond in seven of these districts, at tho election of last year, tho Van Burcn party was successful. In tho House of Representatives there will bo about 100 Van Burenitcs of all complexions inclusive, lo 350 Whigs. Last year parties stood 370 Whigs to 202 Van Burenitcs. It was anticipated that the reduction of tho number of the House would increase the rclativo strength of tho administration party. The result docs not seem lo justify the approhension, A Sen ate composed exclusively of Winos, and a Wtnr. majority of 250 in the House, wc should imagine, would insure a competent amount of sound Whig legislation.

There is tonic contradiction as to the legislature but wo choose for the present to concedo Il to Mr. Von Burcn. Thoro is no mistako about New York Tho whig majority in the state is 20,000, or thereabouts. Four-fifths of llie legisla ture, and three fourths of the senators elected ore uhigs.

At eight o'clock on tno eaino evening, a pariv of 10 of tho Royal Montreal Volun leer Cavalry, under Lieut. EnM atinger, was despatched tost John's, via Liongucuil and Chambly, with Constable Malo, to ef fect tho arrest of two worthies of that place, Messrs Dr D'Avignon and Dema rav, Having quietly effected their object, thev scl out on their return, about 3 o'clock ! .. L.. .1 1 M. f. in iiig noruiiiir. uv inc same roau. liui mi from Chambly, thoy met with a party of nboul 30 persons, variously armed, wno, however, went off as thoy approached. At about a mile from Lonjruouil, they wero warned by a woman, that a large body ot men was in watting for them a little further but from somo cause or other tho infor mation was disregarded, and the party pro cccded as before. They had gono on but very short distance, when they found themselves almost close to a body of about 300, in a field on the right of the road, pro. tcctcd by a high fence, and armed with ri fles and muskets. The party in advance moved on to pass them, but was received by a heavy fire, which it was impossible for them to return with effect, armed as they were with pistols only, and from a body which on account of tho high fenco thoy could not chargo sword in hand. Under theso circumstances, they fell back on the main body of the pany, though not until several shots had told with effect upon them, Lieut. Ermatinqer was wounded, we belivc, with duck-shot, in the face and below the shoulder, Mr Sharp received a bullet through the leg, a little below the tsnee, and Mr John P.

Mr Joshua Woodhouse is also wounded, and wc believe from all we hear, severely. Several of the horses, wc arc told, wcro more or less wonded. In turning to retreat, the waggon in which the Constable and the two prisoners were, was upset and necessarily left behind by the Cavalry, who then made their way in to Longueuil, across the fields. On arriv. ing there, they found a detachment ol two Companies from the 32d Regiment, under Major Reed, who had been despatched at an early hour from Montreal, to receive and support them in case of necessity, but whoso orders had unfortunately directed him not to proceed beyond Longueuil. The prisoners had, however, then made their escape, and the whole body returned to the city, fur further orders. Courier.

The spot where iho attack was made on Friday upon the cavalry, is, ns we now learn "from parties who" havo since gone over the ground, from two to three miles out of Longueuil. On arriving nt this nlnnn. ilio dutncliment found the waggon in which the prisoners hod been conveyed lying by tho roadside, a ucau nurse in uio road, and trnclis ol Uloou in ine neiu wuure the assailants had been posted; from which it would appear lhat some execution was dniin bv ihe fire oflho Cavalry, previous to their retreat. 1 lie nouses anu oarns oy the road-side, from which the Cavalry i.rwi i.pnn fir i.il minn in ihcir retreat, were nil fminil with tho doors and window shut lorn na ild un. A careful search wns of course made, but though tho fires were still burning in somo of them, there were neither weapons nor inmates to be lound in anv. Tho parlv then proceeded along the road, finding the houses w ith one or two exceptions only, deserted, anu uni formly without arms in them. Scouts were frequently soon mounted, and riding down the several concession roads towards tho main road ; but on sight of the troops they uniformly started off again, An in dividual who wua mot upon the main'road, stated ilmt ns he came alonir he had seen numbers of men, women ond children, leaving the houses along tho road, nnd go in off right and loll, Iho men mostly ar med. About six miles from Chambly a man was overlakon on the road, armed. When arrested, ho admitted lhat ho hod turned out to join a party lhat was design cd lo intercept the troops. About a mile further, the Cavalry, who wero a nine in advance of tho main body, gave chase to a party of about 20 armed horsemen, wnom thev saw at some distance beforo them, and who made off immediately ni iuii speed, turning lo tho left up a Concession rnnil lOWarUd II C ueiiuisiu tiiuuiiiaiu. ji lor n milo and a half of hard riding, most ofthem took to the woods, wtuio tno re maindor made their escape along Iho road A company of Iho infantry coming up, wnrn then ordered into tho bush, iho cur nlrv bninrr drawn up along the edge lo cut off such os might bo driven out.

Tho party reached Chambly with their seven prison ers a little after sun-down. From the general statements made by the prisoners, it is evident that a very largo body of men had been called out to oppose the troops, and that courage rather Ihon numbers was wanting, to induce thetn to attempt it.
