MEIV YORK HERALD. !few To.k, Wrdum tny, November 6, INU. THE NEW YORK ELECTION. GREAT DEMOCRATIC VICTORY. THE MA.TIVK A!fD WH1U CMALITIOST SMASHED TO PIECES. The Empire City for Polk uod DaiJai, And Probably also the State. And Nothing more Likely than that POLK IS PRESIDENT. We ars astonished with the result of the elec tion iu the "Imperial City almost," us. Mr. Web ster calls Neiv York. (Chowder!) 'lhe demo orati'j rflecforii ticket, pledged for Polk and Dtl I ?s, T?xa>, Oregon and ?th?*r notions, hns been uurried by .t majority of more than two ihoutand? prf Wbly two thousand three hundred. The returns are aunexed. Of the Uonsr-.?im?l State tickets we can only form a conjecture, they not tiavtug ????.? i ounted last ni^ht ; but the probability is that til* democrats have carried the whole, for these iron listed ineu generally go the whole hog?they never scratch or split difierences. If, therefore, the "Imperial City" (Webster hijaio, by the powers of chowder, )Jhas gone for Polk by a majority of over 2,000, the best opinion is tuat New York State has gone in the same dircc tioa, all smash. We annex all the returns received at the latest hour lust night from the island and river counties. These tell their own tale. If the natives and whigs wish to form a new party under the name of " America.! Republicans" ?a party that can have any chance of victory in 1S4S, they must raise the banner of General Scott at onee?and if General Scott keeps a shut mouth for four years (which is a pretty hard job,) we pre dict that he will succeed Mr. Polk and beat the de mocracy in 1S48. Mark us. We have a multitude of thoughts on public men uud public affairs, struggling for utterance, which we will give at our leisure. Now for the returns IVardt. Polk. Clay. 1st, ... quo 234 21, 000 342 3J, - - - 000 769 4iti, 528 000 5.h, ... 000 251 6th, 948 000 7th, 56 000 8h, - - - 000 11 4 000 10:h, - - - 266 000 ll'h, - - - 1,066 000 12.h, 295 000 13th, 510 000 14h, 602 000 16th, 000 1,041 Win, 230 000 17ih, 262 000 4,812 2,658 2,658 Supposed 2,154 Polk majority. The above returns are all that could be clearly ascertained at the hour of our first edition's going to press last evening. Whatever transpires afier that hour will be found in our second, third, and fourth editions published this morning The election iu this city commenced yesterday morning at sun-rise, and proceeded with almost petted quietness und order. The whig papers abandoned their whole Couuty and Congressional tickets, and went over?n muue to the natives Large numbers of the natures voted for Silas Wright, und many others for the Polk Electoral ticket Nearly all the whigs supported the native county ticket, although some have voted for Wright. The general result depends upon the returnsfrotn the interior of the State. If the river counties show a full democratic vote in favor of Polk, and the abolitionists poll their strength, Mr. Clay must be dele ?ted. If otherwise, why Polk will be used up. perhaps, but not very likely. ncldents. In many of the Wards, the Germans, Irish, and French natnralued cituens fl >cked forward and blocked up the passage to the polls during the day, making an active canvass for "Polk und Dal las" us the crowds of electors went forward.? PJ*-Alderman Shakr, Mr James Bergen, and several leading Demoerat* in the Sixth Ward, were active ly engd^ed dunug the day in dis tributing the Potk and Dallas electoral ticket to the immense cowd who flocked to the polls in that vicinity, and swept every thing before them. The Fourth, Tenth, Eleventh, Thirteenth, and Fourteenth Wards, seemed to be the chief points of interest, as vast crowds rushed to the immediate scene of action, and spirited en the vo era in favor of the Demo cratic candidates At each booth, particularly in the I itter Wards, were to be seen detached groU|>?, in motley apparel, eiigaged in loudly dis cus? the comparative merits of the candidates ?their claims and qualification?as well as the general principles of their Leaders?their measures --and policy ---Here was to be seen an enthuei nstiej Frenchman, " sawing the air" with his cane, and cu'sing loudly, " de dam Vig, pro vision Clay"?while he extolled to the skies, " de Poik and de Dallas." In another quarter bomt Date.i or German might be heard loudly proclaim ing to the crowd, " me give ine vou wote, for the Polk; but the most humorous, and strenuous advocates for the Democratic Candidates were the Irish-?who were to be heard bawling oui at the top of their voices?the names ol Polk and Dillas?" Anserikee, and liberty forever." We give a correct and accurate report of n discussion which took place between a genuine Patlander and a "Native," in the 2.1 District ol the Sixth Ward, where a large crowd were col lected, both Natives, Whig*, and Democrats, who enjoye t the scene with admirable temptr, and cheered the disputants as they proceeded. Pat WU* dressed in a rough, threadbare jacket, which once might have been green, and which bore in numerable marks of brick and mortar, with the arms well patched up. Hw potato physiognomy proclaimed him a genuine specimen of tne soil of Connaught, with all the characteristic? of it* peasantry?broad, comic hutnur, shrewdness, and quick- wittedness? and he was supplied with a perfect armory of those weapons which are usual ly found most affective in the wordy wai tars," which distinguishes the fair deaizena of 'iie fish market. When our reporter reached, he found the disputants iu the midst of the discussion : Native.?-What claim have you to vote for n Chief Magistrate of our country, you who havi some here only on yesterday, perhaps, and hav< lust emerged from the Alms House T Patrick ?A better right than you have, frienr ?who the devil ure you, or where did you grow ?

Tina wua the appointed spot for the returns ot the different Words to be made officially from the partiea who had the direction of {-.flairs therein, which it was generally understood would be an nounced as received. If time and space allowed, we could enumerate many truly laughable instances of electioneering jokes, witticisms, &c. Shortly after five o'clock numbers assembled around the National Hall, in Canal street; and about six o'clock their numbers increased to such an extent that not fewer than 10,000 were present, and it was almost impossible to approach the doors. About seven o'clock J. O. Roberts Esq., was called to the chair. A few re turns were received, when that gentleman stated that he found himself so fatigued with his labors of the day, tiiat he must retire, and Dr. Bacon took the chair as his successor. Every re turn or rumor of return, was met with groans or cheers as it jumped in accordance with their ideas, notions or wishes. It was announced, on the authority of Alderman Crisp, of Kings county, that the Whig majority there was upwards of 200. (Great cheering ) Another account received was that in Williamsburg the whigs had a majority ol 82. The chairman, wbenthe figures were against the whi? party, took great pains to explain that it would not, in any great degree, prevent their ultimate triumph. The chairman stated that up wards ot 200 U. S. seamen were landed from dif ferent vessels in the harbor to assist the locofoco ticket. Shortly after 10 o'clock, the following, af ter having been read over upwards of a dozen times, was announced as the official returns efthe Whig Centrul Committee for this purpose:? Wardit Clay..

Several exaggerated ru mors, however, were sent the rounds, but they were not such as deserve to be mentioned. Westchester isieported to have gone for Polk by a majority of 500. In 1840 it was 300.

We have just ciucrued from the Red Sea. la a few days we will be able to contemplate in perfect peace and stillness, the scene of that conflict which for the Ust mx month* ha? agitated the whole Und, >md covered it with much that was disgrace lul and revolting; and the propel clear aud un clouded will lie before us of that better era of three or four years, 011 which we have at last entered. The violence?folly?recklessness?and demora lization of both parties, from the beginning to the end of the content, now rapidly drawing to a final close, have been such as filled the breast of every intelligent and true patriot with the most painful feelings. The ferocious and madden ed violence with which all the factions have prosecuted the past campaign was, we believe, altegethtr unexampled in this country. Who that recalls the vituperation, the calumny, the forgeri'e, the falsehood, the blasphemous admix ture of religion and immorality, the fiendish ma levolence, the utter unscrupulousneta of the party presnes throughout the Union, can avoid express ing the most devout gratification that this dis graceful warfare has been ended, and that the reign of decency, virtue and sobriety has again commenced 1 But let the past not be forgotten.? Now is the time to enforce its lesson. We have preserved a file of newspapers published during the contest, and we intend hereafter referring to it at length, in order to expose to men, when they have cooled down into rational and reflecting being*, the folly and wickedness into which they have been led by the accuracd apnit of p>ri!mMlnri<n^ and if possible to impress upon them the duty of preserving themselves and their country from like disgrace in ail time to come. We do indeed fervently trust that this painful but incumbent duty of serious sell-examination will be dischsrged. As men?as members of a christian civilized commu nity? as American citizens, the people of this land, of all parties, are bound now that the day of so briety has come, to reflcct deeply on the past, and in a repentant spirit to make high and noble re solves of conduct in the future, more in accordance with their great responsibilities and exalted privi leges. The past conflict trom the manner in which it has been conducted, is a sad blot and blur upon the chiracter of the republic. It did indeed seem as if the hope* of the true friends of liberty were about to be blasted. Every principle of genuine republicanism appeared to ba disappearing in the swollen tide of licentiousness. But the storm has at last subsided, and timely repentance with its blessed fruits, may soen atone for the folly and crime of the past. There ie, surely, everything in the aspect of af fairs just now, to induce men to conduct worthy of American citizenship. We are indeed a highly favored people. Whilst the wail of millions of op pressed men is ever coming to our ears acroEs the Atlantic?whilst the arrival of every .vessel from the shores of the ancient world brings us tidings o! the physical destitution of our fellow men?whilst every newspaper from those lands repeats to us the sad story of the regal magnificence of successful tyranny, and the hunger, thirst attd nakedness of the. millions?we can look abroad on our vast in heritance, and behold on every hand the soul gladdening evidences of unexampled national and individual prosperity. The teeming earth offers us its fruits with boundless profusion. Unshackled industry everywhere reaps it due reward. On all hanJs human enterprise is invited into new and pro fitable channels. The whole land seems to shout a loud hosannah to peace and liberty. Such is the present. Who can paint the great future that awaits us 1 Never has it y t entered into the mind cf the warmest lover of fr e institutions to conceive adequately the power, prosperity and glory that are in store for free America, if she be faithful to her tiust. And there is the solemn consideration which should press ever on the mind rf the good c.tizen. Alflst it ia the consideration which ie least of all remembered ! Here is the source of the evil which most we have to dread. With n tions, as with individuals, to whom great prosprrity is given, a narrow sel fishness?a cold, withering, blasting selfishness, is apt to creep in and fasten itself upon them, de stroying evi y holy aspiration, every generous emotion, every pure and exalted principle *f duty. Already this spirit dwe Is amnng t us. Like the very air wc breathe, tha; from its universality, ceases to be recognized as a blessing, the liberty which we possess is regarded with a cold, heartless, and callous indifference.? Mean and petty objects of a day?the election of some official? the triumph ol a clique?the getiin* up of a procession?ill" inscription on a painted fl tg?a thousand mean ami inconsiderable subjects divert the thoughts of men from the great work ol manhood and freedom which lies before us Was it only that we should be fed and clothed, and made rich in our generation, that this heritage ol liberty has been given unto us? It is a sad matter that many in our midst will fail to echo an indig nant "no." But there is thank Heaven, a goodly number who have not bo learned the duties of American citizenship, who know and feel that they have been net here for the defence and extension of liberty?that their sympathies are to go out and embrace all men, irrespective of creed and name and lineage?that the g orious institutions ef thi& land are to be sustained with firmness but modera tion?with zeal, but with sobriety? with jealousy, but with a generous devotion. Let all good citi zeue then improve the years of repoee allotted to them now, aud employ all their energies in promo ting the interests of the country?its commerce, itr science, its literature, its arts?all that can embel lish and ornament it?animated at the t>ame tiinr by the genuine, liberal, and open hearted spirit ol freemen worthy of that name. O.he Good Result?Jefeatof the Politicians. One Rood result at least has happened in this poli tical contest. Accmding to all probability, if Mr. Polk should be elected, it may be considered a general defeat of all the intriguing politicans of the day. Clay?Calhoun?Van Buren?Benton?Cass ?Webster?Tyler and the whole bunch ol those wrangling, intriguing politicians, who have kept the country in a stew all the time for years past, may be considered as effectually laid on tha shelf. Tney are all dead and buried, and have been de molished by a new man, generally unknown to the country, with only a good moral character and an intellect of ordinary capacity to sustain him. The whig party is alto demolished, and can never rally again under thut name. Mayhap, the American Republicans will take the place of this delunct party, and if they wish to succeed in 1M8, we re commend them at once to take tip a sound, con scientious, moral, patriotic man, against whose private character nothing can be said, and who it connected with the history of the country, whatever his sentiments may be on political affairs. Such n man we would say is General Winfield Scott?il the whigs had had him as their candidate in the present election, they would have got on much better. Political Cliques in New Yoie ?Now that the election is over, we siiall have a full develop ment of all the different political cliques into which the Democratic party is secretly divided We shall have the Tyler Clique?the Van Buren Clique?the Calhoun Clique?the Cass Clique?liar Respectable man's Clique?the Blackguard's Clique I ?all and every other kind of clique amongst the De mocracy of New York, all striving to take posses sion of Mr. Polk when he gets to Washington, should he be elected. We shall, in a day or two, 1 give a complete philosophical analysis of these various formations in the Democratic party*-th< materials of which they are re?|>eciively composed ?their objects and purposes?and all other particu lar' ;>ertaininv to the natural history of those aaiin ? A at ?'l 1 ' 0 1fr<il'ln >.?*!?'- N'a'ural History ?*il rouud I * O'Conmrll's Rbmarkablb Lbtter.Bacriho Out itrom Rctrai. ? We publuh en the tint page of this day's |?\per, the extraordiaary letter recently i^tiurd by O'Connell, and which ia at present at tracting no much attention on the other aide oi the water. It will doubileaa attract an equal decree o' notice and remark in this country, amovg the Irish poi>ulatiou of the United Statas. It will be perceived from this letter thut O'Con nell has abandoned his former project of repeal, and now auuounces his decided pielerence for the "federative system." And whyl Because that scheme "will tend more to the maintenance of the connection between Ireland and England than sim ple repeal"! It is easy to imagine the eflect pro duced amongst the violent repealers by this an nouncement. Surprise?astonishment?perplexity ? omiaous silence, on audible discontent, have marked its the repeal journals and leaders. Already tinny of the parishes have re fused to contribute a farthing to the repeal rent in future; and it would appear that at least some of the deluded Irish people are awaking to a convic tion of the real character of O'Connell, and the hypocrisy ol his schemes and projects. O'Connell's object is apparent enough. He labcrs to eflact a uaion once more with the Whigs?with the Whigs whom he has so violently abused?for the purpose of ousting the Tory administration, and then, uii der a Whig rtgimi, renewing his old game of agi ta'ion and bullying. ? It is very painful to contemplate the political de lusion inte which iha mass of the Irish people are led, b?>*ii kt home and abroad. In Ireland, they have, for a lon?' series of years, been made the dupes of a scheming, hypocritical, selfish man, who ims been enriehing himself and his fuMily on the proceeds of his successful imposture. What good has resulted to unhappy Ireland from all his schemes and all his agitation 1 None, whatever. On the contrary, tha country has been kept in a state of continual agitation?the bad passions of opposinftMetrfhave been inflamed?the minds of the people diverted from industry and the real nature of the evils which oppress them The whole move ment has been a sectarian movement, artfully de vised by a cunning and avaricious man who gain ed the support of the priesthood, and by this means succeeded in maintaining his rapacious hold upon the people. We trust that this letter and the move ments which will follow it, may sooner or later effectually open the eyes of the Irish people to their own folly and the real character of the so called leader. Rkt.icious Movbmrnts.?According to all ac counts from Illinois, it would appear that the Mer mons are on the eve of extinction. A very serioua difficulty lias taken place amongst them, in conse quence of the death of Joe Smith, aad the ambi tion of different sets of leaders to usurp the suc cession. Sidney Rigdon has established his branch of the church at Pittsburgh, and publishes a newspaper there, and the "Twelve Apostles," as they call themselves, are very busy at Nauvoo in the delectable business of defaming, abusing, and slandering each other. We trust they may al! succeed, for it is really most astonishing to see in this enlighteaed age such a set of hypocrites actu ally arrogating to themselves an intercourse with the Supreme being?blasphemously asserting thut they possess his ear?and that they are in commu nication with heaven for the purposes of publish ing a new gospel to the world. A more impudent piece of humbug than this wholo imposture has been, was never broached. The Milleritcs are pretty much in the same pre carious condition. They have run to seed in con sequence of their peculiar doctrines. But they are making some effort to pick up the scattered frag ments ef their faith and folly, in order to see if they can make some stand for a few years lenger. This is a worse folly than even that of Mormon ism. Their duperies are greater and more ridicu lous, and the hypocrisy of their leaders has an ad ditional spice ol impudence. Now that these religious humbugs are passing away, and that the election has also just passed, we may expect a new era of imposture. Fourierim will again begin to rear its head, and all other sorts of urns. Such crack-brained beings as (ireclev and others cannot rest satisfied with common sense business and rational attention to their worldly matters, like reasonable men, but must always be engaged in some ridiculous exploit or other. A Sprig of Ivy.?"We see it recorded in the newspapers as an item oi very important news, that Bishop Onderdouk has received from the palace at Lainbeth, London, a sprig of ivy, to plant by the new church of the Trinity, in B:oadway. This is till very good, arid no doubt, " the rare old plant," will be, when it spreads its broad and leafy tendriL on the walls of the church, a great ornament to thai magnificent cdifice. But there is another thint very much wanted in the Episcopal Church jas now. 11 a sprig of morality of the smallest size?a sprig of true piety of the moat tender proportions, could ouly be imported from any respectable quar ter, either in the heaven above, or the earth be low, and planted in the Episcopal Church, so as to give a savor to the Bishops themselves, we really do not think that much damage would be done to the purity of the atmosphere of these regions. We certniuly want in additiou to this important sprip oi ivy, a sprig of something pure and holy, fron< some uncontaminated source, to be planted it several of the churches amongst us. Tub Caisk of rm Difficulty ?It now appear* that ihe great object of the recent onslaught upoi Dr. Hawks in the Episcopal Convention, was tu prevent him from cairymg into eflect his avowed determination of bringing the conduct of a certaii. Bishop under review, when he himself should gel into the House ot Bisho|>s. Dr. Hawks was well acquainted with the " walk and conversation" ol the ecclesiastical dignitary alluded to, and was re solved to subject it to the scrutiny of his brethren Hence the effort to demolish Dr. Hawks. But i< failed, and now we await the second act in thi> interesting ecclesiastical drama. I alum Opira.?The materials now collected in this city for briaging forth this refined amusement in the highest style, are, it is said, better than w< have ever heretofore possessed. Perhaps in some one or two of the characters, the troujn cannot be compared to the Garcia company ; but setting Ma libran aside, we believe, after all, the present com pany is superior to any ever concentrated ia thib city. We have two prima donnas?Borghese and Pico?each superb in her line ; secundo donnas in any number; two tenors, and basses of excellent character. All that we want is good management, good temper, and good sense and decency of de meanor in the troupt itself. Since they failed in the reccnt attempt at a short season at Palmo's, they have been negotiating in all sorts of forms? now at Palmo's, and now at Niblo's?finally, they agreed to open at Niblo's; but it now appears that the majority of tha subscribers arc unwilling to leave Palmo's, and so they are back again nego tiating lor Palmo's theatre. There is alsoagood deal ot difficulty and many tumors afloat about salaries, costumes, music, and we know not what. It is, however, a philosophical question, worthy of discussion by a body of tavant, whether all these uilllculties and qunrrels and stormy negotia tions do not materially add to the energy, spirit and effect of the performances ot the company when they get before the public. But until we have the matter subjected to a rigid investigation by Dr Lardner, so as to obtain a full development of the nataral philosophy of the thing, just as he devel oped the phenomena attendant ou the explosion of the steam engine on the Reading railway, we shall consider ourselves on the fence in relation to this ma'ter In the meantime, we trust that the com p iuy will jo on and rome to a final ?n<l satUlncto* I rjr arrangement Thrateicaw ?Now that the election is over we have every reason to expect agreat revival in thea tncals in general, and all other amusement, in this city, of every description. For some time past ilieatrical amusements have been moil niggardly ittended ; and with the exception ol one or two minor theatricals, all ihe others, and the higher order of the drama has been almost deserted. It is true that Macready during his short engagement here, and the performance of Ole Bull, too, were wall attended; but the Italian opera, aud the legi timate drama of every kind during the present sea son, in consequence of the political excitement,has been iu some measure a failure. This depression in theatrical affairs allected the Park Theatre as much aa any other, but it is proba ble there will be a revival felt even there; and there is some reason to expect good houses during the remainder of the season, provided they get up good entertainments, and a select and well chosen suc cession of novelties. At present one of the princi pal features in the Park, is the engagement of Mr. May wood, whose representations of Scottish char acter are admitted to be unrivalled. He has brought over to this country with him a number of new pieces; among the rest an amusing and most hu morous little dramatic production, founded on the inimitable tale of Tam O'Shanter, by Burns. This was brought out on Monday evening, and was well received; the house was not large, yet respectable; it is one of tha neatest little gems we have seen at the Park for some time, and being a combination of raele-drama, sentiment and spectacle, und its characters peculiar in every point ol view, it is, in deed, an amusing p?ece. Every one kn jws the peaaliar characteristics of those little morceaux ex hibiting Irish character, in which the lamented Power was ao famous. Maywood is the first who has attempted to introduce similar sketches of Scot tish character, which, although without ell the rich humor of tha Irish charactar, is stamped with a vein of quiet humor, condensed sentiment, and a dash of deviltry, irresistibly comic, fresh avd piquant. The piece has been got up with much at tention, and Maywood plays the famous Tam O'Shanter with spirit and tas'e, whilst his crony, Souter Johnnv, is well sustained by Skerritt. The other theatres will probably all feel the ba" nefit of having passed over the election fever. The Bowery, Chatham, Olympic and Niblo's have all more or lees felt the depression arising from the political excitement of the day ; but above all we expect that the change about to take place will be as much beneficial to the legitimate drama and re gular opera as any other species of amusement. Mrs. Vernon's Bknwit ?We beg to direct the notice of our readers to the announcement of this lady'a benefit,which ia inserted in another column. Mrs. Vernon has friends and admirers, and she daaerves them ; and we ttust, that although her long and appreciated services, as an actress, have interfered with her health, that she will receive, in the shape of a bumper house, this evening, a proof that her position, in the esteem of her friends, will remain unimpaired during her absence. Theatrical*, Ac. Ot.x Bull ?Thi? great artiste gave his last eencert in Philadelphia on Manday evening.
