All manner of influences h.vo been permitted to Interfere with the 7W'i elections in our .jtate, and tho result Is that wo havo saved the Lower House by but " Ihe skin of our teeth." deli town seems to have had a " private griev ance" of its own, and In have sacriliced political differences upon its altar. When Ruiil.tNOTOX and Midm.edl'kv and Rocxtsoll.VM send Loco foci) representative. to the Legislature, Iicnfo coiin may shout " Victory," If it thinks it worth its while i but we can nsuro its worshippers tint they are a good deal like Ihe chip that slipped through the key-hole while common sized p"opie were lighting for tue We think the Wnig mijorily in the IInue will not he his thin four. Tho Montpelier WaUhnin and the Patriot put down H'dro's- Imro, in Windham Co., as having ccctcd u Iz cofoco. Mr. Plimpton, the tn in credited to that town, wa elected by ti few who rcmiined, after the meeting was declr.red to bo adjourned, and the Con-table and Selectmen bad gone home, with the ballot-boxes. Wo have no idea that Mr. Plimpton, under such circumstance, can hold a scat a moment. Grand Islo is alo set down by both the Montpelier papers as Loco; whereas the representative of that staunch Whig town is a Whig, ami "nothing shorter." Clar endon, in Rutland Co., is erroneously set down as having made no choice, while she has elected a Whig. The Senate is Whig by 12 majority. The election of Senators was not affected by the lo cal questions that were suffered to overthrow tho Whigs in many towns. The consequence is that wo have carried 21 of tho 30 Senators the Locofoco3 having gained none but in Cale donia County, where they have been nftener suc cessful than the Whigs hare, for the past ten years. This is tiie true test vote, this year, and the Whigs have reason to bo entirely satisfied with it. Iocofocoism is as far from success in Ver mont as it ever was. Meteorological Phenomenon. On Saturday last, the 18th inst., a wonder fully beautiful and extraordinary meteoric exhi bition was seen from this place. We are under Sjieci.il obligations to our ucroinpli-hid and sci entific townsman, Mr. . Titovtisu;, fur the following statement respecting it. We hive procured the siih,'i'nd di-igram to In mill", (for which we are bid. bled to Mr Hills.) which will render Mr. Tliomp-on' de scription ea-ily intelligible. Iu the diigr.tm, tho outer rircio rcpre-ent tho horizon Ihe letters N, S, 11 and W, the car.linil points; Z, the zenith ; A, the sun, and H, the intersection of the arches in the north. On S.itunliy, Sept. IS, be.'vveen 12 and 1 o'clock, P. M,, the people of Ilurlington and vi cinity hail the pleasure of vvitncs-iiig a mrtenric phenomenon of exceeding infere-t. It consisted of a beautiful exhibition of solir bales. In tho fir-t pi ice, there wa a bright halo round the sun, in which the pri-nntic colors were very di-tinctly exhibited. Tl.e radius of Ibis h tin wa about 22 z , the sun being in it centre. Secondly, there was a circle of while light, whose center vvas the zenith, and who-e circumference ptcd through the centre of the sun, the altitude of which, at the time, was -17 i . Thiidly, there were two equal circle, a linle larger than the la-t mentioned, w i i-i .' - were about 22 5 from Ihe zenith, nuu tn tl.e ea-twaid uud the other In the westward, and whoo circiimfercnee a-sed through ihe sun and cut i ach other in the oppo-ite point of Ihe circle round the zitiilh, nl nil altitude of 17 5 above the hoiizon. None of these circles ex hibited distinctly their whole circumference at the sitna time, bill the portion which form.-d the intersections iu thn north remained renurkablv distinct, and with very little change, for more than half an hour. Iu tho prim try halo tho prismatic colors were at times very brilliant, and portion of the other arches frequently exhibited them, having the red on their inner margins. During tlio continuance of thj meteor the higher regions of the atmosphere exhibited a faint haziness and thin whitish clouds which were nearly stationary, while in tho lower re gions lleecy clouds were Hying rapidly athwart the sky from south to north.
