NEW YORK HERALD. ??w Work, IhuritUjr, Noveuikcr T, 1?44. The Hocnit hllcrtloii?I la Itameroni ilraulu, From the return# all ady received, givi-ig ihe result of the recent presidential eleotiou in tin* couuiry, it is very evident to the phtloeophical ob server, that a more important election has never been held since the establishment of the present constitution. It is probable, that on this occasion three inillious of independent men throughout tnese tweaty-six States, iiavi* coine up in the compass of two or three days?at almost contern|>o raneous periods?and declared by their vote*, de posited in the ballot boxes, who is to be ihe clue! magistrate of this mighty country. At this mo ment we are unable to say who is elected Presi dent?wheth-r it is Mr. Clay or Mr. Polk?for the treat mass of the whole population are so nearly divided, that it may take some days yet before that extraordinary result is ascertained aud when it has been ascertained, it is highly probable that the candidate may triumph by one of the smallest minorities that ever has determined such a contest. In thi ? contest a variety of issue* have been in volved? floral, political, social, religious, and, per hv?, commercial. From the extreme close aesi of the contes* it might be nrgoed that these is?ues, to a certain extent, have not been decided m?on, but yet we believe, fiom the general charac ter of the result ifiua far ??<>Mriained, that most likely the most ot them have received either a new im I'Ul .a or a depression, trom which the philosophical inind can discover the uatnral results growing out of this extraordinary movement of the people t>l the United States. Let us examiue this matter a little more closely. And first growing out of this extraordinary popular struggle for the chief magistracy of this great country, we have evolved the distinct ttuth aud great fact, which is still denied by the monarchists of Europe, that a free people?an intelligent people?a religious people?with cer tain exceptions in all points, ate yet capable ot going through one of the most extraordi nary movements?that of an election for chief magistrate, and presenting to the world at the same time, a spectacle of moral sublimity that the sun has never heretofore shone upon?and that is, in a population of twenty million*, such a contest should be peacefully determined without the shadow of military force to maintain the laws? without riot?without insurrection?with nothing whatever to mar or deface the moral beauty ot the movement, except the tolly and mismanagement of the press and certain politicians preceding the contest, and u. few little, paltry, contempti- j ble "rows" here and there in some of ihe large cities. This ought to teuch the monarchists and aristocracies of Europe, as well as the great popu'ar misses there, that the grand experiment ofmanV ca pacity tor self government is successful here to 11 degree transcending even the hopes of the friends of tree institutions. The enemies of republicanism in Europe are in .he habit of exclaiming agaimt tli<? insurrectionary spirit, which, bs they falsely ull'idge, prevails in the United States. That is all a silly fable. Popular outbreaks have, it is true, occasionally taken place?but what have they beenl Sudden, brief, and evanescent astbe explosion of a rocket. But here we have s^en the great princi ples of the government applied, and the right of u niversal suffrage exercised, whilst unusual popular excitement universally prevailed, and not an inci dent occurring to occasion the slightest pain to a true patriot?without any of the riot, and blood shed, and tumult which are exhibited at every elec tion in Great Britain. This is one of the principal points or issues es tablished and strengthened by the recent election. Another result is the complete and utter destruction ot all thoje mistaken ideas promulgated by the enemies of this government in Europe, that we are a divided nation?a divided people?and that there are elements at work among-tt us which will tie ft-oy ihe unity of the people and the government. But the very division of such a mass of intelligene .is is comprised in three millions of people, into 'wo great parties, distributed almost equally in every State?in every geographical division of the country, prevents any such idea from obtaining an aecendsncy in this country, as a division or disso lution of the Union. What can South Carolina on one side, and a few demagogues in Vermort on the other, or a little fraction of abolitionists in Boston, effect by their denunciations ot the Union, or resolutions declaring its dissolution, when w e see immense masses of the population all uniting oordially in one great movementl The perpetuity of this Union is therefore atrengihed and establish ed by every succeeding election for the Presidency. To thes? two most important points, there are a number of subsidiary or less important ones to be added, all growing out ot the ptesent election ? Amongst these, the most iinpoitnrit.ia, probably, the moral re-action that will now take place, both iu the press and th* people, when they cast a glance bt - hind th-ni.and see the excesses and errors they have committed in the recent canvass?when they re flect upon the outrages against both correct taste and sound morality. In public meetingc?in private conversations?in various associations of both par ties, errors and excesses were committed, of which all, we are sure, will now feel ashamed. A great re-action will now take place, in consequence ot this calm retrospection, and we are encouraged to hope that it will tend to a more rigid adhe rence hereafter to the principles of good taste and ' sound morality. Another result affecting oar foreign and domes tic relations will also grow out of this election. The very closeness of the contest between Polk and Clay, and the peculiarity of the issues in volved, have certainly given an impetus to that measure which is called the re-annexation o! Texas and also the acquisition of the Oregon tern tory. A strong opposition has been made to thi measure in New England, but we are persuaded, from the extreme closeness of the contest, that even if Mr. Clay should be elected President, that measure would still be successful sooner or later, together with the acquisition of Oregon to its full est extent. Another point which may be consider ed as established, is that in relation to the toriff? the gross delusions on this subject, to which the popular mind was subjected by the extreme aud unscrupulous electioneers of both parties, will now he understood. The whole country, with some slight exceptions in South Carolina and else a her., 1*, we believe, in favor of a reasonable tariff?not an exclusive tariff?hut a reasonable tariff, giving ample revenue to the country, and affording a fair and honest support to manufactures, agricultures, snd every otlvr industrial pursuit of life. We do not bel.eve it will be possible to make the tariff a parly issue hereafter. It is a broken reed at best, and nas been used by both parties in the recent nontest, merely to throw dust 111 the eyP? of tl.e people. With respect to the United States Bank, to the distribution of the public lands, utid to the great question ot internal improvements,we nre sati.fitd that, even should Mr Polk be elected, the charac ter of Congress will be such, and the position and power of the country are so peculiarly situated, that all those measures will, in process of tune, gradu ally acquire strength; and that, although it muy b some years, we think it is highly probable that ?very succeeding election will only increase popu lar opinion in favor of a National Bank, establish ing a new currency, and 01 a measure for the dis tribution of the public lands to aid the delinquert ?Stales, and probably of the principle of supporting internal improvements by the funds and energy t! the government. I he whole tendency ol the gre. popular movement ot the age is to give power an J momentum to the great central government of the country. Prom ihe peculiar abstractions of the Southern States, and particularly Virginia, the ma ris! movement originating in the middle .and in da stria I States ha. hitherto been retarded by that dreamy, vague, impracticable idea originating in the South; but we believe that a alow, silent, yei sure revolution in the social condition, as we as in the political opinions oi the Southern States, has commeucrd, ?ud is now going on, and that it will be developed in a lew yearn m some sig nal political result as to these opinions. Mary land, Virgiaia, and the Carolinaa have been depressed of their agricultural wealth during the last lew years, as much from exhaustiou ol their soil as from the successlul rivalry of the South-Western States on the Mississippi; without the ancient affluence which they possessed, they become discontented and dispirited, and have been in the habit lor some years past of attributing all their difficulties to the action of the general govern ment, while they really had their origin in their own social condition. The time is propitious to correct all these erroneous uotions, and to put an end to the unreal and unphilosophical abstractions, which had their birth in the time ot Jeflerson in Virginia. The movement of the present day is a material movement, embracing an in creuse of wealth, industry, camfort, and every thing connected with the improvement of mechanics and the arts. The rising gen eration are all imbued with that new industrial spirit, and as new fl iodi of voters come into the field, we are pi rsuaded that the old Virginian no tions of abstraction and restriction will be eutirel) overlooked and swept away. These are some ot the views which occur to us ?? irvwiog out ol this important election But they are not all. From the very importune* ??*' oc casion, and the influence exercised by the abolition vote in the free States,we are persuaded that there will be hereafter both in Congress and in the State Legislature, a full opening up of the abolition question in all its vaneties. But we do not apprehend any difficulty from that, nor from the isolated " native" movement in a few districts? These are mere sporadic eruptions?excrescences which appear every now "and then, but are speedily removed by the intelligence of the age. They can not and will not be allowed to impede in the slight est degree the growth and progress of this mighty land in any thing connected with civilization. And so we can contemplate,without the least draw back, the one grand result of this election?the triumph.nt vindication of the practicability and success ot democratic government, and with that the ultimate annexation of Texas?the acquisition of the Oregon?the establishment ?f a National Bauk and national currency?the principle of a protective tariff?-the distribution of the sur plus revenue for the benefit of delinquent States, and generally the gradual concurrence of the public mind in all schemes for internal improve ment that may advance and unite the country in one great community of freemen Our prospects, therefore, are brilliant in the extreme; and we can now point with hope and triumph to the great movement et independent men in the election of their chief magistrate, as a spectacle that ought to astonish and alarm the monarchists of Europe, awakening in their minds the conviction that their day is coming. City Affairs.?Now that the general election is over we wiil expect the corporation to pay a little attention to the city affairs. They merit great praise for their efforts to preserve the peace of the city, which the intelligence and good sense of the people happily rendered an easy work. First ol all wewillexpuct attention to a munici pal police. During the heat of the contest, the Common Council passed a bill for a new police system, which did not receive the at tention it deserved. Now let it be taken up pro perly. We now want a good police more than ever; for as the political fighting clubs will ol course rapidly dissolve into their original elements of burglars, thieves, rowdies, and pickpockets, the want of nn efficient police system will vefy soon be much felt. Again, the steamboat landings are in as bad a atate as ever. The cabmen are as disorderly aa ever, and all these matters must be attended to promptly. Then the had streets demand notice. Broadwav i? in a shockiug 6tate. It must be re-paved entirely?and not in the bungling manner heretofore seen. Let it be paved with blocks of granite, which can be so readily procured from Staten Island, and then that noble avenue will bo what it ought to be, a comfortable, clean, elegant and respectable thoroughfare. But perhaps the most pressing matter ol all is the taxation. It has been enormously increased in di rect violation of the solemn pledges of this new party. If they don't look to this and relieve the city from a portion of this intolerable burden, they will find out their error in the spring. Pictorial History of the United States.? We give in our columns to-day an extract from a very valuable work just published in Philadelphia, entitled " The Pictorial History of the United States, bylPro'essor Frost, in four octavo velumes, and embellished by three hundred and fifty engrav ings ftom original drawings. This is one of the most interesting, ss it is one of the most elegant histories of this country tver published, and is par ticularly adapted fur the use of schools arid col leges. In our paptr to-day we give an extract irom inis work, with an engraving illustrative of the landing of the. first emigrants or "foreigner#," on Ply mouth Rock. It will be perceived that these first bands of the " offscourings of Europe" were re ceived with a great deal of politeness and hospi tality 1 y the "natives" of that day. The spirit of enlightened and intelligent republicanism, which now exists in some quarters, had not then, it is to be presumed, appeared. It certainly excites some curious and not altogether unprofitable reflections to contrast the interesting period thus recalled to our mind w ith the present. Wm S. Archer of Vikqinia.?Some ol the " native" papers have, we perceive, nominated William S. Archer, as their candidate in 1848. A weaker and more contemptible candidate could not be selected from the lists of weuli politicians. He's an amiable man, but in intellect and capacity, be low the level of Captain Tyler. If the "natives" waul to do anything, let them take up the name of General Scott. Silas Wrioht in New Yore ?So far as the re turns have been received they indicate that Mr. Wnght is running ahead ol Mr. Polk. His vast popularity is, doubtless, one cause of this, but rt also indicates the depth and permanence of the hatred of the Van Buren clique to the nomination of Mr. Polk. They can't forgive that. Olr Bull.?This great genius passed through this city yesterday from Philadelphia en route to Boston, lie appears to have quite recovered from his recent indisposition ; indeed we have never seen him appear in better health and spirits. He will doubtless favor *he Bostonians with one or more of the new pieces which helms recenilycomposed The " Requiem to the Memory of Washington," is said to be equal if not surpassing his former compo sitions ; the "Solitude ol the Prairie," is alco worthy of the great artiste, and the " Falls of Nisgara," by those who have heard it, is estimated one ol his sublimest productions. It is hoped that ere long the residents of this city will have the op portunity ot hearing one or all ot these composi tions. Benefit of Mr Lennox ?The admirers ol Scot tish character will perceive Mr. Lennox takes n farewell benefit at the Chatham Theatre to-nigbt, i aided by Miss Nelson mid Mr. Freer. Pongs, danc ing, dec., make u;> an admirable night's performance We say, ro one, no all Vot. 6.?Owen Daily, of Brooklyn, wm arrested *t a late hour on Tuesday night, rhsrgad with illeiallr vet. iog to tits lata ward. UNPRECEDENTED EXCITEMENT. BOTH PARTIES CLAIMING NEW YO&t. Doubt and Closeness of the Election in this State. Chaneeiof Mr-Clay Increasing. We are in the midst of an unprecedented ex citemeat, alter having passed through an ex tremely quiet election in thia city; but the returns from the interior counties in thta State, throw a cloud over the proapecta of both parties. Both claim their candidatea as having been suc cessful?the whig* claim Mr. Clay; the locofocos present the same claim far Mr. Polk. The ex treme closeness of the conteat, compared with that of 1840, make the chances either way very doubtful. The extreme excitement of politicians, the crowds in the streets, the commotion that is gene rally prevailing in the city at the present time, ex ceed all we ever experienced during 'he laat quar ter of a century. All partiea are dissatisfied, except perhapa the American Republican party, who, with the aaaiatance of the whiga, have ear ned their Araembly ticket?and may thus hold the balatce of power in that house? besides the Senate, and several members of Congress. Amidst these conflicting views it may be asked wnat is our opinion 1 As far aa we can tell, all appears to depend on the Abolition vote in the weotcru couNtiwB, and in consequence of Birney's conduct aa respecta his connection with the Loco tocos, Mr. Clay may carry the State. In Ohio, the Abolitionists lost aome strength, but whether they will do so in this State remains to be seen. How ever, the neutrals have the power to aecure it if they have exercised their vote; whether or not, at present it ia impossible |to say. Nothing but the actual returna will do it. Some 600 or 700 vot#a may decide the question in this State. We have added the lateat returna up to the hour of going to prear, which will be found aa accurate aa can possibly be obtained at the present time, flew York Election. 1844. 1840. Count in.

It is to be seen by this, the above returns being correct, that the whiga out oi the city hold their own?that they are, indeed, nearly as strong us in 1840, when they carried the State by 13,290. It ia possible, however, I hut the abolition vote may afl-ct the general result, but it is difficult to tell how far that vote has had an influence on the whig ticket. In Oneida county, the strong hold of aboli tionism, where the abolitionists polled 1148 in 1843, the whiga have gain> d 396 in seven towns?show ing that Birney has, moet likely, been deserted by a portion of his party who have gone over to Clay If this runs through the western counties in the same way, Clay has certainly carried the State All is in doubt and contusion, and Polk may and may not come oil' with the thirty-six vlectoiul votes. Should Polk, however, lose the Stale, Wright will probably be elected Governor. It appears probable from the evidence we have received, that there has been a small defection in the de mocratic ranks on the part of some of Van Bu ren's friends. It is supposed that owing to Van Buren being thrown overboard, some of his ad mirers bolted the course on the Presidential tick et, und went powerfully for Wright. This ia madr more cleurly manifest, by thelact that Wright iun> ahead of his ticket in every county heard from. In the present aspect of the returns, it will b^ difficult to tell with much accuracy how the State has gone, till we hear from a few counties on th other side of Cayuga Bridge. Till then, therefore, let us watch and pray. To-day, look at the Post script head for later returns trom the interior, ami see what they indicate. Pennsylvania Elections, October. November.

Aa the shad?-s of evening droo|>ed upon that broad thoroughfare called Bowery, ita ample trottoiri were crowded with a bevy ol smart young men, cute politicians, ana a due sprinkling of pre cise, unbending, enthusiastic old heroeB, whose mathematical cut habihmenu and evangelical as pects, shewed they were determined?piously bent ?upon exhausting thescaut remains of their earth ly pilgrimage iu defence of the Bible?the whole Bible?the book ot the Maccabees and the whole Apocrypha included. "Here's to the Pilot that weathered the Storm," sung Geoige Canning, ol his departed prototype Wm. Pitt. Here's to the skilful voyagew, who, by good luck as well m good guiding, pas?ed the entrance door?fenced through the hall,and scrambled up the stairs to the room where the Native foices were assembled, without cut or contusion ; and from all we wit nessed alter our perilous arrival within the boister ous precincts ot that chamber, we are piously in clined to say?in relation to all who may " go and do likewise"?" may the Lord send you a happy deliverance." Arrived, however, inside the large assembly room, what sounds, what tumult fell upon the ear What were the orgies celebrated bv that sage, ss I aiduous, sanctimonious conclave of Native Ameri can Republicans? "Oh, there can be little loss to opine that," you are ready to say, "surely men who love the Bible akov# everything else, as they say ; men who hat# the Pope and the devil, who are jealous for the cause ot orthodox, could not spend the passing heuria aught else than "in improving the time, us the days urc evil " No, no. Sutely theae champions ol scripture, who are ready to cut their neighbors' throats lor God's sske, ate not so ready to anticipate the stern necessity ol that sanguinary ordeal, us to talk of deeds ot violence, to blast the reputation ol political foeB, because not possessed ot pliable consciences, to malign a nation, aye, & nation, whose greatest lault, they allege to be, their desperate fidelity to tne precious "lagacy of generations, to the lessons of their Jyouth and the guide ot thcii mature pilgrimvge in foreign lands." All this is quite plausible speculation ; nothing of the sort should be; but alas! since the days of old Oliver, who said that the Lord had moved him?to " take away that bauble"?to be " delivered of Sir Harry Vane," and maaeacre the garrison ot Drogheda in cold blood?there has been lar too frequently pei ceived an incompatibility between the practice and professions of those who become crazy by drinking deep of religioaa fanaticism.

And now ye victims of Cromwell, who said he was moved by the Lord?who put his trust in him and kept his powder dry in the meantime? ye shades of Patrick, Bishop of St. Andrews, ex terminated by that champion of the Bible, John Knox?and fervetus consumed by the godly fana tics of Holland?hear the endorsement ol the acts ot your assassins in Young America, in the lan guage ol the " natives" of iliat renowned Common we&lih ?
