" From a gentleman who wm in Kansas at the election, atd who reached Washington yesterday, that the elections went off quietly, and that Governor Geary had made every ne cessary arrangement to secure to every the ai molested exercise of his privilege. The ami-slavery voters, however, declined to themselves of their rights, and allowed t opponents to carry tho election ,u_ tii. General Whitfield was voted for by^the pro-slavery paity, and is . t ,we out, as ha, been g^K^^bave listened to Black Republicans in Kansas ^ ^ ?aaterQ the oounsels of their leaaers , t ubt m lii" over iheir .gpponont?. Thi. ."ow.tb.UUe, "I" mor" than tLe elective franchise. The Union replies to ihe Intelligent? ar ticle of yesterday upoa the submission or re actance q.estion. in ewe of Fremont's cleo tioo, and, by way of showing up the inconsis tency of the course of the Intelligencer, says : ?? Let it be remembered that Mr. Fillmore, the favorite candidate of the editors of the Intelligencer, in his Albany spcech. made the following threat or prediction: 4 //' this sec tional party (the Fremont party) succeeds, it leads inevitably to the destruction of this beautiful fubric reared by our forefathert.' And let it be ob.erved thai the editors of the Intelligercer now characterise this prediction of Mr Fillmore a' * an extreme error, not to say wicJte Inesy?that it is a vionstrons idea? but yet they profess to support him for the Presidency. The Union's advices from Fennsylvania leads it to believe that the Democracy will not only cany the State triumphantly over the combined ai.d oorrupt efforts of the Re publicans and Know Nothings, but it is pos sible, and even probable, that they will elect their candidates for Congress in a majority of the district*. And from Ohio, public and pri vate accounts assure it that the election of at least eight of the Democratic candidates for Congress may be regarded as a matter of cer tainty. The InteUigencer devotes a large portion of its space to a review of the speech of General Quitman, of Mississippi, during the late ses sion of Congress on the subject of our neutrali ty laws, in which the speaker advocate 1 "entire alteration" of our existing pali;y. as ascertained and defined by the act of April 20, 181S; which act, in its leading features, is pronounced not enly "unnecessary and im politic," but is also regarded as containing "infringements of the personal iightj of the citisen.'' "in the formal enumeration of his objec tions to thi* a:t, as interpreted in our day, the honorable member ( ays the Intelligencer) specially adduces the foil >wing : ' Its denial of the right of expatriation, and, under certain ciicumstances. of emigration even.' Without any intention to contest the particular argu ments contained in Mr. Quitman's speech upon this or other pain's, respecting the most of whhh our opinions are already sufficiently known to our readers, we purpose, on the present occa.-icn, to invite their attention to a brief historical review of the legislation of Congress relative to the assumed right of ex patriation?a rignt which some of our yonnger readers may not be aware has more than once been called into question and controversy."

The Elections.?Pai?*srLv ania.?Yester day we published a brief summ? ?ry of ike result of last year's election in Pen jsylvania. We would to-day re publish result of that eontest by eounties, if in tba.4 way we could probably enable the Star's leaders to com prehend more perfectly the first returns from that State, to come to hand to-morrow. But tte voting there to day will be so extraordi nary in view of the extensive changes in party relations, as that it would only serve to con fuse. The State has been canrasscd as never be fore, aLd both parties have endeavored to as certain the predilections of every man entitled to oast a ballot there. We left there yesterday after spending a mo: h, iu participating in the canvass. Our juigment is that the Democracy will oarry the State by a handsome msjority over the opposition, which though professing to differ widely indeed with reference to principles and men, are heartily supporting common can didates, and, therefore, common principles. Every one of the candidates on their State tieket is for Fremont and his abolition doo trines. The only way in which the Democrats can be defeated will be through fraud and such valence as occurred at the rocent Balti more election, where at least twenty-five hun dred Democratic voters were prevented by force from depositing their ballots. We can only say that if the Democracy of Pennsylva nia permit themselves to be so treated to-day they will richly deserve defeat. It is their duty to put down such oonduct in their midst at all haxar*? and without regard to the con sequences upon those who thus essay to de prive them of their rights. We believe they will do it, and think that , the knowledge that they will do so, which the nominally respect, able backers of the bullies tbat would other wise be relied on to trample the rights of citi zenship under fcot certainly possess, will be sufficient to prevent them from running the risk cf maddening such men as the Shifflers, Rip Raps, Plug Uglies, Ac., with liquor, and encouraging them to cause blood to flow in the streets of Philadelphia to-day, like water. Wo stall see. e will certainly gain more or lets members of the Inited States House of Representatives from Pennsylvania to-day, and. we have every reason] to believe, will^carry the Legislature, unless prevented by extensive fraud and vio | lince. In Ohio, if the Fillmore party sustain their own candidates in good faith?of which we are by no means cor fident, as we regard them, as in Pennsylvania, to be mere tenders to the Fremont Abolition party?the Democracy must poll a plurality of votes and obtain a heavy accession of Congressional strength. In Indiana, our friends are sarguine of a victory. We do not know sufficient of the cjndition of affairs there to be able to expres8 aa opinion of our own on the proapect in that i State. | The aggregate vote in all these States will be enormously increased over the vote of last year. The President's Return ?The committee appointed In behalf of our c tizens to proceed to Norfolk and ascertain the intended route cf the President of the United States on return ing to the seat of government, in order that arrangements might be made for his reception here, left here on Saturday evening and ar rived in Norfolk on Sunday morning. They j soon ascertained that the United States steam er Engineer, Capt. Lovell, having on board Cum Dornin, had proceeded te Old Point, in order to put the Engineer at the disposal of the President. They proceeded by the first stoamer fr.iu Norfolk for Old Point early on Monday morning, and on arriving at the Point found the Engineer at the wharf with out tidings of the Wabash Having procured at Norfolk, letters to Com. Dornin, the com mittee were politely at,d hospitably received on board the Engineer, and every facility of fered them for resching the Wabash. About 3 p m cn Monday information was brought to Old Point that at 2 o'clock the Wabash was spoken in the Bay, and answered that she was bound for Washington, and would not turn in at Old Point, or visit Norfolk as was expected A salute was ready to be fired from the ramparts of Fortress Monroe on the visit of the President, but his rapid passage up the Bay eluded the look-out ol the sentry, owing to the haziness of the atmosphere. The Engineer returned to Norfolk, and the officer requested the committee to make it known at Washington that they had been in readines. and on the lookout for the Wabash for 36 hours before her passage up the bay. The committee took passage at 6 o'clock the same evening for Baltimore on the Louisiana, hav ing caused a sharp lookout for the Wabash to be kept up all night, but nothing of her could be discovered. On returning in the 9 o'clock train this morning from Baltimore, they learn ed tbat the President had not arrived at An napolis at o'clock. The committee state that they received every attention and hospi tality from the officers of the government, and from the citiiens of Norfolk and Portsmouth. It is probable that the Wabash is coming up the Potomac to Washington, as the answer given from her yesterday when spoken in the Bay was, 44 Bound for Washington." It is un certain when she will arrive. The following dispatch was received at the Mayor's office this morning from the Commit tee: Baltimore, October 14, 6 20 a. m -Frigate we't oMjIVp V P I,? *e8terdtty miles west of Old Point; spoken by steauer Coffee ?

Fremont " Now, here is a pntsle for weak minded Re publican voters. How are they to distinguish the "Original Jacobs,"thegenuine "Schiedam Schnapps," the " oldest Dr. Jacob Townsend's Sarsaparilla ?" The New York News thinks? "It must have been thia other Fremont who climbed the Rocky Mountains, who, with three hundred men, devoured the five thous and cattle and six thousand horses in Califer nia in three months time; who brought in fraudulent accounts to Congresj for expenses amounting to one million of dollars, hut after ward acknowledged that one hundred and forty-seven thousand of it was fraudulent by withdrawing that amount of false items charged, and of the balance the Military Com mission allowed less than one fourth of the whole amount. It must have been this other Fremont who charged the United States ten thousand dollars lor taking a "formidable fort at Verba Buena, bristling with iron cannon <?( heavy caliber and several brass pieces" which this same Commission, on investiga tion, found to be a dismantled fortification, and not a single soldier of the easing in and allowed just fifty dollars!! for the won derful achievement* It must have been this other Fremont who wn tried for mutiny ai-d disobedience of orders, and dismissed the army. Some other Fremont, who challenged Col Mason to deadly combat, assaulted Sena tor Foote in the Senate, and voted agaicst abolishing slavery in the District of Columbia, anil it must certainly have been this Fremont who deceived a highly respectable girl in Charleston, now living there, a witness to his own ingratitude and deception. It must havo been this other Fremont who stole away the daughter of Col. Benton, and it must of course be the other Fremont, and not John Charles, whom old Bullion so bitterly opposes. It must, too, have been this other Fremont who was married by a Catholic priest, for they never marry a couple unless one of the par ties is a Roman Catholic, and Benton's daugh ter was not ; and it must bo another Fremont who is father of a fine lad now living in L >s Angeles, about eight years of age, the veiy picture of manliness aud of the Colonel. But as tbo Colonel was a model of propriety ! while residing there, the putative father of this fine boy must be that other Fremont." Philadelphia Election ?We have private despatches up to 12 m. to-day from Philadel phia. Lvery thing had gone on well and qui etly up to that hour. The story sent us yes terday by the telegraphing agent saying that there is great excitement againt the Demosra cy on account of the arrest of the Shi file r Ilose Company, is worthy of no confidence whatever. None but rowdy ruffians sympathise with them, all good citizcns of all parties in Phila delphia rejoicingthatthcir well known schemes of violence at the election wore thus nipped in the bud. So, too, with the dispatch sent u? on Saturday, about the desertion in Philadel phia of some man named Coffee, who has no weight whatever there, or elsewhere?deserv iog none. He was against us two yesrs ago, w is re cently employed as a writer for the Argus. and on losing that employment was taken up by the Republicans, and having no political principles of any kind, declared for them His change will have no more weight in Penn sylvania, the Republican party telegraphing agent, (who sends us bogus news while we pay for facts, rather than his partisan specula tions) to the contrary notwithstanding, than that of any other of the class of penny-a-liners in the citics whose political opinions or criti cisms are notoriously in the market at, from? a glass of brandy teddy, up to a new suit cf clothes. The Great Meeting at Lancaster, Pa ? A correspondent writes us as follows of the immense assemblage, the speakers, Ac., con gregated at Lancaster city, Pa , on the 8th instant: Mr. Editor: I presume you have received reports of the great Democratic meeting held in Lancaster city, on the 8th instant. With out exaggeration, it was the brightest event in the political history of Pennsylvania; the common appellation of party cannot be ap. plied to this public demonstration, ftom the fact that its numbers and enthusiasm surpass ed all expectations, and gives conclusive evi dence of the popularity of the sage of Wheat land at his home. Every towuship in the county was repre sented by large delegations, having flags, banners, and inscriptions of the most benuti ful character. Among the number of dele gation, I observed particularly that of Man heim township, headed by that old veteran Democrat, Col. S C. Stambaugh, who is de voting his ail for the success of James Buchan an This delegation had a magnificent ban ner, which was carried in his carriage, driven by the Colonel himself On one aide it bore the inscription : 41 Manheim Township Dele Jation ; True to their friend and neighbor, nmes Buchanan, the champion of constitu tional liberty." On the other side, an endless chaiD, with thirty-one links, forming a circle, and within the circle thirty one stars?the old Keystone star at the centre of its bise. upon which rested the shield of the Union, with the words " Cons itution and Union;" above it, at the top, were the words "The Sacrcd Cir cle," and below ?* 4 The Union must and shall be preserved'?Andrew Jackson." It was beautifully and tastefully decorated, and wor thy the man who devised it and the cause we are all espousing. There were many others, beautiful and appropriate. In short, it was a grand sight to behold. At two o'clock there was an attempt made to 'organise the multitude, and five stands erected for the speakers, among whom were James B Clay. Fletcher Webster, Preston of Kentucky. Appleton of Maine, Riddle of Del aware, Smith of Virginia, and others The speeches were eloquent and patriotic, and re ceived with very great enthusiasm by the masses. In company with some friends, we started for Wheatland, and were received by the old patriot statesman with great kindness. He appeared to enjoy good health and spirits. We thought he looked very much like a Pres de*t of the United States From Wheatland we proceeded to Anna dale, the beautiful residence of our friend, Col. S C Stambaugh, a man whom to know is but to love A short time after we arrived there, the Lebanon delegation called on the Colonel on their way home, headed by that reliable Jeffersonian Democrat, Gen Weed man. We accompanied them to the Manheim line and returned and partook of refreshments prepared by the hostess of Annadale Thus ended one of the most pleasant days of my life T. J. A.

THE PERSIA New York, Oct 14 ?The Cunard mail steamer Persis, Capt Judkins, from Liverfool on the 4th inst , arrived here this morning about 9 o'olock The news ny the Persia is summed up under three general heads, viz : The demonstration ngainst Naples ; the Belgrade boundary ; and (he disputed right of possession of the Isle of Serpents. Respecting Naples, the only infor mation comes from the Brussels Le Nord, which says that the Austrian ministers at j Paris and London have urgent orders from j their government to entreat France and Eng land to abstain from any demonstration, at leaet until the return of the maritime media torial mission to Naples; and further, that it is said the W estern powers, in consideration for Austria have given their assent Therefia considerable letter writing, but no new facts respecting the Belgrade boundary question. The German papers assert that Great Brit ain has addressed a second note to Russia on ! the subjeat of the Isle of Serpents, more peremptory than the first; but that the result is unknown Great Britain has proposed as a plan of ad justment of the Montenegrin difficulty : that Turkey cede an extension of boundary to Montenegro, and that Montenegro acknowl edge the sovereignty of the Porte A royal decree by the Queen removes the confiscation of Chriatinia's property in Spain. Napoleon had returned to Paris. There are rumors of an increase of Austrian troops in Italy The Ministerial crisis continues In Denmark. The China mail had been telegraphed. THE MARKETS. Liverpool, Friday ?Cotton opened firm at the beginning of the week, but fell off toward the close in consequence of an advance of Bank rates, closing quiet and steady Sales of the week 61,500 bales, 12,000 of which were on speculation and 4,400 for export Sales on Friday 7.0(H) bales?speculation and export 500 bales ; Orleans?fair 7?d . middling Old ; Uplands?fair 6Jd., middling6jd.

The Pennsylvania says the Fremont elec tioneers are buying votes with Mariposa scrip. The advice is, "go it strong, and this will be g?vd; if beaten, worthless." The Welsh Democrat, a paper recently start ed in New York, in the espousal of the Demo cratic cause, is exerting a commanding in fluorcs among our Welsh citiiens, in this campaign. The Democrats of "New Haven had another grand torchlight procession on Thursday even ing last, in celebration of tho late election re sults in Connecticut. It is represented as having been two miles in length. The Scranton llcrald, the only Fillmore pa per in northern Pennsylvania, has been sold out to the Democrats, and is to be united with the Spirit of the Valley, the Buchaaan organ of that place. N. P. Willis and the Shakers have declared for Fremont No other proof was needed in addition to what the public have of Fremont's tot*l unfitness for the office, to which fanatical idolators have sought to elevate him by stu pendous fraud ami .altchooi Alluding to the New York Evening Post's estimate of the result in the S'ate, the Pulaski (Oswego) Democrat says : "We have all along conceded this county to Fremont. It was largely Republican last year. If he can't carry the iierrit Smith district, what counties in the State can he carry ? And yet we say to our friends abroad, that tho Fremont ma jority in this county?if any?wil 1 be less hun dreds than they claim thousands.'' Almost all the clergy in this part of the country are claimed for Fremont. The claim is in a good measure unfounded. We know thai a number of our most distinguished cler gymen are in favor of Buchanan. A minister of the Luthern church, also a pastor of a Re formed Dutch church, have each, through our columns, expressed a belief that a majori ty of toe clergy, in the case of the Lutherans, a very large majority, are for Buchanan and Breckinridge ?iV. JT. Journal of Commerce. The following is from a Crawfordsville, If dinna, paper. Read it, and be astonished : ?* The doctrine that has been so boldly advo cated by the leaders of the Abolition party during the last year, ' that a negro teat at good as a white man,' has become, with a majority of the members of that party, a fixed fact No longer than last week a man resid ing in the vicinity of Oberlin College, in the State of Ohio, gavo his only daughter in mar riage to a sooty African who had been edu cated at this Abolition institute. This man, we understand, is a State elector on the Fre mont ticket, and regards the negro as his equal. The young lady is described as being extremely beautiful, and but sixteen years of age, while her dusky lord is blacker than the darkest midnight." lion. Thomas Corwin spoke at Carthage. Ky., on Saturday. He defended Mr. Fill more's administration, and denounced the abolitionists, who refused to support Mr. Clay against Mr Polk in 1844 He maintained the right of Congress to legislate on slavery in the territories; disclaimed the purpose of election eering for any man He belonged to an old party, now extinct, lie was an orphan, and spoke simply as a citizen who desired to con fer with bis fellow citizens as to their duty in this emergency. He had no political aspira tions. Ho had had enough of involuntary servitude and claimed the benefit of the ordi nance of 1787. The people themselves were to blame for much of the trouble that the C(untryhad been brought into. He believed that Mr. Fillmore's views wore the same as bis own concerning the power of Congress to legislate on slavery in the territories. Hanging for the Public Amusement? Barbarous?The London Globe says: The following is a copy of a placard which was ex tensively circulated at the recent races Wilms low : <* Wilmslow Races, Sept. 2 and 3, 1S56 John Fletcher, King's Head Inn, feels great pleasure in announcing to his numerous friends and visitors to Wilmslow Races, that he has secured the services of John Smith of Dudley, the executioner of the late William Palmer at Stafford ; and also been fortunate, through a friend, of procuring from Liverpool a cast of bis face and features, forming an exact model of the culprit, dressed in corresponding clothis as he appeared or the morning of exeoution.
