NE W YORK HERALD. N?w York, Tunday, Ahum IS; U?j Returns of the Rocaat State RlseUons-Tks' Contest Tklckstts ?Tl>e Importance of the We give in another column, a comprehensive and careluily digtsit d statement of the results, so tar us ascertained, of the elections in North Carolina, Indiana, and Kentucky. The geueral impression made by the returns is, that these approaching con test will be a mucn closer one than had been ima gined. The result of the election in Louisiana opened the eyes ol all to this fact, and deraomura. ted that the Whigs had there at least, reckoned in some degree without their host. In North Caroli na the Locofocos have gained three thousand votes sinee 1840, whilst the Whig vote exhibits a falling off of no less than four thousand. In Kentucky the Wtiig majority has been considerably diminished, iu consequence of the popularity of the Democrat ic candidate. Altogether, it is quite clear that there is a remarkable tailing ofl in the Whig vote as com pared with that of 1840. Other evidences, striking and significant enough, are not wanting, that the Whigs will have a much harder fight of it than they anticipated at the com mencement of the campaign. When the campaign began, every boijy remembers how sanguine and how assured of victory the Whigs were. Their inase meetings and gatherings of the people, had the aspect of great scenes of rejoicing after a tri umphant conflict, rather than of marshallings of the hosts lor battle. Addresses and orations deify ing the " Mill boy ot the Slashes" were delivered, by enthusiastic youths, and hymns of glory and of triumph \.ere sung by blue-eyed maidens; whilst the old sat smilingly mute, or lifted up their voices only to join in the loud acclaim,which announced, alas' a little before the time, the elect on of Henry Clay. Webster, and Choate, and Granger, and all the great orators of the party, made solemn resolu tions that they would not speak at public meetings during this campaign?that they would generously leave the field to the young heroes, who, with souls tn arms, were panting for the fray, and eager to flesh their maiden swords in the bodies of their locofoco foemen. Bat the scene appears to be chang ed. Mr. Webster is out, and very heavy too. He has been speaking at Trenton and at Concord, and at Springfield, and will make one of his tremendous efforts at Albany on the 27th inst., when the river counties meet in Convention. And the other grea leaders are also out and are also very busy. In the whig camp all is bustle and preparation, and it is pretty generally considered that really, after all, it will be necessary to fight a little, in order to secure the triumph of Henry Clay. Nor is this newly awakened alarm in the whig ranks without just ground. All now see that rather too much time was occupied in premature rejoicing before the battle was fought; and that there is a possibility that the day of grace still left, may not suffice to retrieve the ground that has been lost in foolish inactivity. Poor Horace Gree ley, for one, is in a terrible splutter, and is calling on his brethren to come up to the scratch, in tones somewhat less musical than melancholy. And the question now presents itself at every turn, can the whigs really be brought out in all their force at the uext election 1 Does sufficient excitement at present exist to bring that party to the polls in November next, with all its adherents, from Dan to Beersheba 1 Now we hold it to be a fact well established that, the Whig party?where a sufficient degree of excitement exists to bring it out in all its force?is nl ways able to demolish its antagonists, the locofo cos. This was demonstrated in 1840, and on va rious other occasions. But the present crisis is one widely different from that which presented it self in 1840. Then the country labored under a degree of political excitement without parallel in the history of its political contests. Paitly exas perated by the distresses of the period immediately preceding that conflict, and partly stimulated by a reckless desire for change, the great masses of the people rushed into that campaign with a degree of frenzied excitement which vented itself in all sorts of folly, absurdity, revellingsand debauchery. The Whigs came out in full battalion, and of course triumphed. But the present period is very different from that. The country is prosperous ? The voice sf rejoicing is heard throughout our bor ders. Industry, commerce and enterprise, are resp ng rich rewards, and the future is full of en couraging omens of happiness and prosperity Men are not driven into the political conflict by the fiend of misfortune, recklessness and despair. A great mass of the people are very indifferent as to who shall be the next President, and of these hap py, sensible, and philosophic men, a great propor tion are Whigs. Still, the coming election will, notwithstanding all this, be very close and well contested. Thjp contest will be a decisive one, and it settles for years to come, most important issues. It will determine the annexation of Texas?the question of a National Bank?distribution of the land re venuea?and the highly interesting and important questions connected with the tariff. These issues cover both our domestic and foreign policy. The result of this presidential election will exercise a moat important and immediate influence on our re lations with England and France. If Mr. Polk be elected, these relations will at once assume a new aspect. The annexation of Texas and the sccupa tion of Oregon, will be of course amongst the fiist measures of his administration, and it is impossible to forsec how soon they may be followed by the most serious alteration in our relations with Great Britain and other European powers. This is what gives peculiar interest to the present contest. Hereto fore the issues of the presidential conflict have been connected only with our domestic policy. In the present case they have acquired a new and peculiar complexion, which gives them infinitely increased magnitude. The question of peace or war with Great Britain is now involved in this contest. The closeness of the contest and uncertainty of the result, together with the vast and sniversal im portance of the issues involved, will render all po litical information of great interest from this time up to the eve of the election. We have according ly made all the necessary arrangements, and will be enabled to give the fullest, earliest, and most authentic returns of the State elections, and of ail political events and movements throughout the Union. _____ The Jewish Eliction.?This affair, to which we devoted some of our spare time yesterday, ter minated in the election of H. J. Hart and M. Michael as the candidates for the office of Trustees of the old hole and corner party; the latter named person is President, also. As expected, there was some sparring aud squabbling, but not quite so much as we thought, which was principally owing to the determination on the part of the reform party to conduct their business calmly but steadily. The votes of five gentlemen duly qualified, and thirty five seat-holders, were leudered and rejected by the inspectors, or rather by one of them only, as the other waa willing to admit their claim. In this state, the contest, which is conducted under legal advice, rests for the present; but it is in contem plation, we are informed, to secure the legal ser vices of one of the foremost men of the day on behalf of the rejected voters and seat-holders, whose claims will shortly undergo the scrutiny of the Supreme Court. Annoying ?The '?native" party here is very much annoyed by Mr. Frelingliuysen's letter de ? dining so pointedly any relationship with'them They consider it a very unkind cut. Let them pay him off by running a separate ticket. Launch.?A large sized pilot boat, built by John Friend for the New York and Sandy Hook pilots, will be launched from the foot of Eighth street, this morning at nine o'clock She is in be called tbf Wot J Romsr, tad is really a beautiful boat Cltjr PdUUm. Custom House Removals and ArroiirrxKMiit.? The Custom House tnd " Poverty Corners" in the vicinity of Pine and Nassau stieets, were the scene oi much excitement yesterday, owing to the announcement of some fifty removals from the Custom House, with as many appointments.

The above ate all the appointments that will be made at the present period. Applicants will theie fore take notice, and govern themselves accord ingly. Thx Union Meetings.?For the past several days, the question ol an union meeting of the De mocracy and Tyler party, of this city, has been the subject of debate beiore the Tammauy Hall Gen eral Committee, but no positive result has yet been made manifest. Several of the members of the committee have opposed any public action or ex pression ol opinion, while others have loudly urged the reverse. More will be made known this week. In furtherance of this union elsewhere, we find in the Norfolk Beacon a correspondence between a committee of Messrs. W. N. Whiting, P. P. Mayo, William C. Whitehead, E. C. Robinson and Cary Fentress, friends of President Tyler, and Mr. Wm. Smith, democratic candidate for Elector. The let ter ol the committee is in the form of a circular, aud has been addressed to sach of the democratic Electore. It inquiries whether they will pledge thrtnselves to vote "for Polk or Tyler, in accord ance with the wishes of the Democratic party, as the same may be expressed on the ballots 1" Mr. Smith answers that he "will, cheerfully, cordially and heartily." A similar reply, it is supposed, will be given by the others. Is a similar course to be adopted in this State by the Democratic electors 1 Justice Josepii Hoxik.?A secret movement has been in operation for some time past to im peach Justice Joseph Hoxie for neglect ol his offi cial duties, by absence from the city in the capacity of a Whig orator and songster. We shall oppose this movement, as we really believe that Judge Jo I is more serviceable to the community in his new j vocation as a vocalist than as a Judge. We think j he is a better judge of music than of law, and we would sooner any time hear him sing a song than give a legal decision ; although we believe his judgment of the quality of apple jack is unques tioned. Judge Jo must not be removed, unless for some other cause than this. Country Politics.?The announcement of the sudden decease of Henry A. Muhlenberg, the de mocratic candidate lor Governor of Pennsylvania, has caused mere speculation relative to the politics of that State than any incident that has recently transpired. Mr. Mnhlenberg was a resident of Berk8 county, and his nomination was considered as se* curing the success of the democratic ticket in Pennsylvania. The democrats will therefore be compelled to re-assemble in Stale Convention and select another candidate. Francis R. Shunk.of Harrisburg, the former Secretary of State, will pro bably receive the nomination, as he was the se cond choice of the Convention that nominated Mr. Muhlenbeig. Removal or the Post OrriCE.?A meeting has been called in the Park to-morrow afternoon at 4 o'clock, for the purpose of protesting against the removal of the Post Office from the present loca tion to the cite at present occupied by the old Mid dle Dutch Church. This subject has produced a considerable degree of excitement, and much of it, as in all such cases, without a great deal oi common sense or reason. We do not see any thing very monstrous or un justifiable in the removal of the Post Office to the new location. It is a very central point, in the very midst of the bustling, commercial part of the city. Fulton street, particularly in the neighborhood of Nassau street, has within the last two years Men rapidly growing up to be the great centre of busy metropolitan life. It is very accessible by numerous side streets from the great mercantile thoroughfares down town. It is surrounded by the great newspa per establishments. In fact the proposed site is i much nearer the great heart of commerce and bu : niness than the former?it is nearer the Exchange? ; nearer the Custom House?nearer the principal mercantile houses?and nearer the great news paper establishments, than the present buildings j in the Park. ) It is not necessary to make any remarks on the , inadequacy ol the present buildings for* the trans j action of the business of the Post Office of this great city. Indeed it is disgraceful to the govern ; ment that only such contemptible, limited and in sufficient accommodation has been afforded (or so ! long a time, to the Post office business of the me tropolis of the Union. We want a large, commo dious, well-arranged and respectable building for this purpose, and it we had that, and the place of the present Postmaster supplied by an active, in telligent and liberal man of business, we wonld be eternally grateful for the boon. But if, as has been suggested, the present Post office buildings, the Alms House offices, and the miserable shanties occupied by the United States' District Court, were removed; and a substantial, "pacious, and elegant building,with a handsome fa cade on Chambers street, erected in their stead, then there might be some reason in demanding that the Post Office should remain in its present location. But of this we don't see much prospect, as it has been called for tor years, and with about 'he same result as the call for police reform from ?he "natives, ' and so we are decidedly in favor ol 'lie removal to the contemplated site,where,by the way, the Poet Office will be more than ever under our eye However, we shall take care that nil that is said and dene at the meeting to-morrow will bs reported Movement* of the " Native*."?A peat deal of inquiry lauuuia juat now about tbo pioaeai and future movemenu of tfae "native*." Oa all hands we hear it asked?"What are the "native* about 1" "What do they intend doing 1" "Will they run a separate ticket in the fall 1" " In what atate i* their organization 1" "How do they design to keep up their sepaiale exiateuce ?" " Will they indeed run a ticket of their own 1" We do not kuow much about whut the natives intend doing, and we believe that they are them selves in as great degree of uncertainty about it as we are, or any body else. But it we don't know what the natives are doing or what they intend, we know very well what they should do. By all means, and at all hazards, they should run a sepa rate ticket. It is utterly impossible for them to maintain their existence, unless they run a separate ticket. And there can be little doubt that the sen sible and intelligent members of this party art well aware of this. There is no alternative for them. They must either do this, or perish in the early trosts of the coming winter, which will be upon them and the late fall cabbages before they know what they are about, if they don't hearken to us, their calm, disinterested and philosophic friend. The fact is, we want this question about the naturalization law settled. We want it disposed of at once, and a stop put to all the talking, squab bling, fighting and bravado, about it. And we're not at all particular how it is settled. We don't care a straw whether the naturalization law be repealed or not. It is all the same to us whether the term of residence, necessary to qualify for citizenship, be one year or a century only Bettle the question. It is peat folly to waste so many words about it. And the "natives" never can set tle it, unless they run a separate ticket "Yellow Flowers" and "Native Blossoms," and "American Republican Dandelions," may be scattered all over the land, and the lungs of seventy and seven Sammons, albeit made of leather, may be worn out on the "native" roBtrum, but all will be as un profitable as the sowing of the wind. But by run ning a separate ticket, the "natives" w^ll decide the matter at once. They will, by doing so, be certain of swamping the Whigs in the coming election, and surely that will be doing something "glory enough for one day." And doubtless they will knock the Irish even farther than into the middle of next week?into the middle of the next half century at least. So, then, natives, make your choice, and be quick about it. On one hand is victory, and a set tlement of all this jabbering about the naturaliza tion law,?on the other, defeat and disgrace. If you do not run a separate ticket in the fall, it will be equivalent to running off the field, leaving all your banners, drums and trumpets, " Yellow Flowers," and "Native Blossoms" in the hands of the enemy. What ark the Catholics DoingI?We have every reason to believe that the Catholics will come out with extraordinary force and unanimity in the approaching election. The movements of the " natives," have had a wonderful eflect in sti mulating the Catholics into unprecedented elec tioneering activity. They will pour in their thou sands and their tens of thousands into the demo cratic camp, and in all probability may decide the result of the Presidential contest. All the movements of the Catholics in the pre sent campaign, have been conducted with peat quietness and peace. They have had no public meetings?no public appeals?no public gather ings?no inflammatory publications of any descrip tion. Attending the same churches every Sunday, they have had peculiar facilities of meeting, con sulting, and arranging their plan of operations, and the result has been a quiet, wide-spread, and effective organization for the purpose of sup porting the locofoco ticket. And the respectable portion of the democratic party has discovered a great deal of discretion and judgment in abstaining from exciting appeals to the Irish. The " native" movement has, we believe, exercised a salutary influence in preventing, in some degree, that abomi nable intriguing and trading for the Irish vote which we have seen in times past. Left to them selves,?free from the influence of the demagogues of their own party and of the corrupt party factions, the Irish, as a class, are in all respects excellent citizens?sober, industrious, frugal and orderly. It is only when they become the mis erable, degraded tools of trading politicians, or demagogues amongst themselves, that the Irish became demoralized, and unworthy of the privileges of citizenship. And we believe that we are quite justified in stating, that the influ ence of demagogueism is diminishing amongst the Irish?they have been taught some useful lessons. The evil consequences of Bishop Hughes' conduct at Carroll Hall, have opened the eyes of the Catho lics to some very important tiuths respecting the duties and the pecularities of their position in this community. The conduct of that prelate was in deed strongly condemned ftom the first by many of the best and most worthy Catholic citizens. Now it is pretty generally regarded by them in its proper light. We see in the peaceful and unobtrusive manner in which the Jrish are now conducting their share of the electioneering movement, the evidence that what we have just stated is correct. And the influence of the Irish vote in the result of the elec tion will be now more important than ever. In this city the Catholic vote is probably upward of twelve thousand. That will be cast altogether for the locofocos. In Maryland the Catholics can carry the State. In the great valley of the Missis sippi, the Irish are very numerous and influential. In Ohio they also constitute an important portion of the electors. In Illinois and Michigan they are very numerous. Altogether, the Irish vote exer cises a tremendous influence on the general election in this country. This year it will be brought out in , unexampled strength, and will contribute im mensely to the force of the democratic party in this great and decisive contest. Public Informers.?One of the evils, and not the least of them, produced by municipal regu lations, forcing people to sanctify the Sabbath, is the creation of a very disreputable clas of men, who are known as public informers. We already see this eflect produced here, by the attempts of the new corporation to punish violotions of the sanctity of the Lord's day. Last Sunday several individuals of low and disreputable character went into some of the hotels, and after getting some re freshments, lodged information at the police office against the proprietors. The police offics was in deed kept in a ferment all day by the informers, and great disturbance of the public peace took place in Centre street, in the neighborhood of the ?' Tombs." This system offers inducements to ma lice and ill-nature, and creates a despicable class of informers; and the sooner it is put a stop to the better. Mr. Wehster's Speech at Springfield?The principal feuture of the late Mass Convention of the Whigs at Springfield, was Mr. Webster's speech, and it was intend-d altogether to operate on the "liberty party." He expended a considerable quan tity of characteristic, eloquent, and vehement de clamation against the annexation of Texas, on the ground that it would lead to the extension and per petuation of slavery. Mr. Webster made it as clear al noon-day that the Whigs and Abolitionists were precisely of one way of thinking on this subject.? All this is very significant. It shows conclusively that Mr. Webster is alarmed, and that it isnecesaa ry to win over the black interest. Bell's Auction Notices.?The advertisement* of Mr. Thomas Bell, 11 Spruce street, indicate a return of that period when familiesand house keep ers can supply themselves with domestic mjiiisites ..f every description. Independent of winch, a visit to his rooms will enable those who are in want i f elegant lurniture, to supply themselves by private sale, upon terms of the utmost advantage to both partiss Bishop Hughes and the Church or St. Louts ? We have been vary much giaUiUd by observing that the very unpleasant difficulties FetweenTJIshop Hughes and his hock at Buffalo have been arranged, and that the spirit of peace has again taken up its abode in their habitations. This is very delightful. We always desire to see brethren dwellmg together in unity, and certainly the spectacle of a shepherd teasiug and worryiug|bis owu flock,is a eight which can never aflord pleasure to any good christian The Bishop preached in the church oi St. Louis last Sunday afternoon, much to the edification of the devout; and the following "card" appears in the Buffalo papers, announcing the termination of the controversy i? A Caio.?We, the undersigned, Trustees of the Church ol St. Louis, Buffalo, bavins had the hcnorofan interview with the Right Rev. Dr. Hughes, Bishop of New Vork in relation to the difficulties winch hove existed be tween the congregation and tho Bishop tor some time past, and having received from him a true explanation of ceitoin parts of his pastorai latter ; and finding thereby that we have been laboring hithorto under a misunderstanding oi the same, hereby express our willingness that the Church aud congregation ot tic. Louis be reg ulated according to the provisions ot tho said pastoral loiter and Ihe hue tzplana lion received from the R ght Reverend author; aud we premise, in our own name, and (10 far as we can J in the name of our anccessors, that the administration of .be tem poral -flairs ol our church a id congregation ahall be con ducted conformably to the same. We farther take rccasion to say, that if our course in this matter haa given any scandal or offence to onr Catbo lie brethren, we regret it; adding merely, that our action Sroceeded from mistaken impressions, and that we shuuld e the last to opi>ose the authority of our religion, either intentionally or deliberately. J DINGEN8, President of the Board of Trustees. JOSEPH HABF.R9TRO, BARTHOLOMY RiNCK, JOSEPH STFFAN, NICHOLAS HAAS, MARTIN FI8CHE. CHARLES E8SLINGF.R, Secretary. This is all very well?very gratifying and very christian-Iike. There is, to be sure, something in the tone of this "card" which sounds rather too penitential perhaps, and does not, altogether, give assurance that all the people are quite satisfied yet?still it gives evidence of a much more com fortable state of affairs than previously existed. We think our castigation of the Bishop, for his conduct in this matter, haa done him good In fact, we always believed that there was a great deal of good material in the Bishop, and that all that was wanted was to bring it out. This, it appears, we have done to some purpose in the present case. We trust that the Bishop may go on in improving; and we are not without hope that by-and-by we may be able to shake hands with him, and greet him as we would St. Paul, in case he shonld come for a week's sojourn in this world, in order to get a lit tle of our fresh, balmy air. A Scene in a Temperance Meeting.?Quite a scene occurred in the Marshall Temperance Socie ty the other evening, in consequence of a Mr. Ed monds getting up and abusing, with a good deal of ] fiery invective, some gentleman from Boston, who had in his turn made a vigorous attack on the keep ers of the grog shops. A great deal of personality and scurrility was poured out, and the whole scene was very discreditable to all parties concerned. We are surprised that the Chairman permitted such disorderly conduct. It is greatly to be regretted that the advocates of such an excellent cause as this should dishonor it by such conduct. Let there be no more of this.

What's the Matter with the Waiters'!? We have heard of a number ot accidents occurring to waiters at the fashionable hotels,who have gone on pleasure excursions. The other day a boat with Beveral of those gentlemen, connected with the Hamilton House, were upset in the Bay, and nar rowly escaped drowning. Another,who had gone a yachting, was driven out to Sandy Hook, and had also a narrow escape. Two of them?con nected with one of the hotels in this city, came near fighting a duel the other day. What's the matter with the waiters'! The Chevalier Wikoff is, we ?uspect, at the bottom of all this. Not con tented with defining his own position, he defined also that of all the waiters "at Long's," and else where, and ao turned the poor fellows' heads that they are cutting up all sorts of capers. Very Late from Hayti.?We have received from the gentlemanly Capt. Sbepheard, of the Gen. Marion, arrived yesterday, the following letter re lative to the affairs iu Hayti:? Dear Sir,? I left Port Republican on the 31st of July, at which time all was quiet, and business resuming its usual features. The market was glutted with American produce, and no demand; Coffee at the same time selling for $13 87 to $14 15, costing on board 6? to 6j. It is thought by some that coffee will now fall in price, ns there has been great de mand latterly for the article, on account of Euro pean vessels having to leave prior to the 1st of August. The late French Admiral ol this staiion left on Saturday the 27th for Martinique, on his re turn to France. His'successor will meet him there. I suppose you must have heard of the celebrated i black chief, Acaou, having surrendered himself to the authorities. What wilt be done with him ia yet to be seen: but as he has now been here six teen days, I think it very likely he will rscai* | the punishment due to his crimes. Certainly, if any scoundrel ever merited death, he does The authorities api>ear determined to give all a lair chance to lay their complaints against liirn. It was proclaimed through the sireetB that all who had suffered at his hands, or had other cause ol com plaint, to appear before the Court, who were about to try him. it is reported that the President should have declared that whatever was the decision oi the Court Martial, it should be carried into effect; but I think there are others heie ao deeply impli cated with him, that he is sure to escape. Then again the Ilaytiaiis (bad aa they are) have a repug nance to spilling blood. Strange as it may appear | to those who know their history, it la so. In proof, look at the revolutions that have occurred here within the last two years. It is thought that the firat revolution against Bayer was achieved with a loss ot not more than 300 men. Then this last re volution against Herard. and ita concomitants. This Acaou shed more blood than was lost in all parts of the island besides. That there are many ambitious spirits who would not hesitate to plunge the country into the horrors of civil war, if they could wade thereby into power, is not for a mo ment doubted, but the general disposition of the people is peaceable, and an aversion to shedding | blood. I remain your humble servant, Philif Shrpheard. Musical Intelligence, Signor Casclla, now on a professional tour, gave a concert at Saratoga, and from thence repaired to Newport. At the Ocean House there, an immense assembly attended his performance on the 5th in stant. Severn I persons could not obtain admission, so great was the desire to hear him. Stgnor Ca sella is at present in Providence, with a prospect of a no less warm reception from the lovers of music in and about that city. ETiuorKAN Serknadkrs.?These accomplished vocalisis last night fully realized the expectations of the most crowded and fashionable audiences we ever witnessed within the walls of Palmo's opera house. The house was literally, but not uncom fortably crowded, and we know of no more ra tional or amusing entertainment than the native songs of our native minstrels. Niblo's Garden ?Two novelties were present ed last night to a very full house, and the evening passed most pleasantly. "The Spirit of the Rhine" although a supetficinl production, has some highly effective points. Nickinson was the beau ideal of an old German Burgomaster, and the Gaoler's taciturnity well set off the domineering self impor tance of the old functionary. The ladies all did their parts to life, and except the splendid and en chanting scene in the second act, representing a moonlight view on the Rhine, there could not be any better. It would be unjust not to mention the merit which this production of Mr Bengough ex hibits; if there wer? nothing else, this beautiful find enchanting view would warrant us in saying that as a pupil of the great Standfield, he does credit to his preceptor. The second piece was " Aldgate Pump." It is a graphic sketch of life in London, and well hits off many strong characteristics of low life. Mitchell, the Philosopher on Mud, kept the house in an up roar of laughter. This is a most pleasant alter piece. Let us have it again by all means; the Aldgate Pump ia still far from being exhausted. Excursion.?fhe excursion to the fishing hanks yesterday in the R. L. Ptevens, whs acknowledged by the many who enjoyed it, as by -far the most delightful and profitable of any of the season The K L.

Ten counties are therefore yet to be heard from. Theae gave a Whig vote in 1840, of 3,482, and a Democratic vote of 1717, showing an aggregate majority for Harrison of 12,594. It is seen in the above table, that the aggregate popular vote has increased this year over that of 1842, and decreased from that of 1840, the year of Harrison's election, and of the greatest political ex citement ever known in this country. The increase of the vote this year over that of 1842, is larger on the Democratic side than on the Whig?thus: Total Increase 6 303 Whig increase, 3,376 Dem. increase 3,837 Thus showing a Democratic gain of 452 more than the Whigs exhibit. It is observed also, that the Whigs have fallen off prodigiously since 1840, while their opponents have made a large accession to iheir strength. Dem full vote in S3 counties in 1844 3ft 398 Dem full rote in 1840, 33 783 Gain 1,616 This gain will of course be swelled when the full returns for this year are received?swelled, perhaps, to three thousand or more. Notwithstanding this gain, however, in the popu lar vote, the Democrats have lost the Legislature, which they last year had in their hands. It is now Whig by a large majority in joint ballot.

This election, which is to choose a legislature, is looked upon as an im portant one, as a United States Senator is to be elected to supply the place of White, whose term expires next March. Kentucky Election.?No full returns have yet been received from this Slate. We should judge, however,from what we have heard that Owsley, the whig candidate for Governor, is elected, and as a matter of course, but not by a decisive majority. It was supposed that he would run behind his ticket. Illinois Election.?All the returns we have re ceived show that John Wentworth, democrat, is re-elected to Congress by a very large majority. Missouri Election.?No returns received. The Floods at ma Wxsr.?At last we hear some talk about a public meeting in this city, for the purpose of collecting funds to aid the sufferers by the recent disastrous floods in the West. We trust that the movement will be made at once. In St. Louis alone it will require an expenditure of $20,000 to remove the deposit of mud from the wharf. The destruction of private property has been incalculable. Let the great city of New Ycrk be the first to set the example in the work of be nevolence. From Caraccas.?Dreadful Destruction of Property.?Dates have been received frem Porto Cabetlo to the 23d ult. The small pox had nearly disappeared, but the inundations, caused by the excessive rains, had been fearful. The main road from Caraccas io Puerto Cabeilo is im passable, and the whole communication is now made by the old road round the cape. In the valley of the Tuy the >r plantations have lost their all. unfortunate proprietors of In fact, the destruction of"the coffee and cocoa trees is immense, and the soil is either ruined by being washed away, or ehe covered up by the sand brought down the river. The poor laborers aie beggared, and the landholder is in despair. Thus much lor the ieartul inundution of t ie river Tuy. In every fei tils district of Sinamaics, in the valley ol the river Linton, the loss by the flood is incalculable. The destruction of propeity far exceeds that of the great oveiflow of the year 183-). Cattle ot all kinds have pe rished in almost incredible numbers, and the tew houses on the plantations not actually washed away are so in jured as to be nearly worthless In the unfortunate city of Carora, half of the population have lost their homes, and the Governor has been obliged to offer the hospital and barracks as a shelter for the sul fering poor. From Bogota, Carabobo, Maracaibo lie the accounts ol suffering, caused by the desti uctiuu ot life and pioperty during the late inundations, are really mournful.
