JIAf.NE ELECTION. To day the State a> d Cooirre-.-ionnl elections occur in Maine. We have ju.-t retu ned from a short trip to the land of pine tree- ; but we must confess that we noticed very little en it? u;?nt among the people touching the election Indeert. it ; truck us that there was very little interest felt in the result. The same apathy, however, may not pnv.iil throughout the State. Aa we passed through Port In nd on Saturday, we observed notices stuck up round tbe -treats, culling meetings of both the whig and democratic parties. Vary little is heard of free soil in Maine, though the election may show that the principle I us taken deep root, it is im possible to predict the result The plurality law now Doing in force, some unexpected elections may occur . ?Koslan lice, Sryt II FREE SOlf, MOVEMENTS. Therein now but little if any, doubt that free sol electoral tickets, pledged to Van Duron, will be found In all of tho non-slave holding States. As we hare already noticed, a free soil electoral ticket had been nominated in Mas.-aehusitts, and we presume that State conventions, for the same purpose, will quickly follow in tho other New Kuglaud States; but the free* soil papers furnish but little information of the most Important movements i f their own party. Some of their editors claim ti e vote of New Hampshire, when they ought to know that eueh an event as Van Huron and Adams receiving the vote of that Statu is nearly Impossible. If the free soil tick-t should even obtain a plurality of tho Totes of the people, it would bo of no avail to Van Buren. as the choice devolves on the legislature when neither ticket has a majority, aud the Vans men have a majority iu that body; of course Cass must, In all probability, receive the vote of tho State. The same may be said hs to tho certainty of Mas.-achtoetts going for Taylor In the other New F.ngland States, a plurality governs in tho choice of electors. The free toil (oa^buruersi stato convention, meets at Utica, on Wednesday, Sept. 13, when a governor and other State officers, and a Van Huron electoral ticket will be nominated. The fere soil Statu convention of Pennsylvania meets at Heading, the eainu day; and in New Jersey a State convention, meets on Saturday, the 10th met, at Trenton. In Michigan, Illinois, and Wisconsin, similar State convouticus am to be lield this month. In Ind ana, an electoral ticket has been nominated, as we have noticed. In Ohio, the free soil men are very active, but we have not observed any notice of a State convention of the party. We are also unadvised as to the movements, in this respect, in Iowa, ''robably we shall be able in a few days to announce the final arrangements of the free soil party, for the -''residential contest, in all the fifteen free States NKVV YORK. The Albany Eitning Journal remarks thus on the date Clay movement in this city " Willis Ilall. who presided over the gathering, together with those who got it up are committed in favor of Mr. Van Buren ! Their object, ther-fore, is transparent. How tar that object is consistent with their professed regard for Mr. Clay whose name is used to pnomote the interests of Mr. Van Buren. wo will leave Mr Cley himself to determine 'This movement, though 'keeping the wor.l of promise to the car' of \ir. hillinore. is alike hostile to him and to General Taylor. The association of his name with that of Mr. Ciay to run on an independent electoral ticket, for the benefit of Mr. Van Buren, was a piece Of gratuitous treachery. " We infer, from this f.ido movement, that the direct efforts of Messrs flail, White. Sulden. Davis, ho., .Co., to beguile whigs into the support of Mr. Van Buren. has not been successful. And hence tho attempt to divide a party whose integrity and faith was tempted in vain. But the effort to (lisorgsnire whigs will prove equally abortive. The spirit of revenge, when the country is to be its victim, will find little sympathy in whig bosoms. Mr. Clay himself, if indeed he be himself, will refuse big name to, and wr IiDoij in* emotion irom. ibis evildesigned demonstration Mr. Clay baa devoted twenty year* to the able advocacy of whig principles, and to the feaTlcss exposition ef the evils of Jackson, Van Daren, I'olk and Ca** mi-rulo. Ho will not,now dim the brightness of his fame liy contributing to the election of men who have plunged the country, step by utep, into a long train or horrors, winding up with extended slavery, war and n enormous national debt."

Tho I'Htthurfh Cnmmrre'al Jmn mil (w hig), of the Nth Inst.tnt, throws some light upon the ellei t of the free soil movement. in the following r< t??i ks :? "The Usshinpton Union Is l>oth earnest and constunt in the duty of assuring Its friends that the nomination of Vau Burnt and Adams by the barnbnrn. u-u lu ti.nl,In.. V...-, .. nntn.w. M .. nkl... .? Ik. least, doing greater damage to that party than to the democracy! "When the 1'otl. and cthir deinocratlo papers of i tli's region, assert that the barnburner movement is doing more damage to the whlgs ti'an the democrats, thev shut their eyes to truths and facts, wLioii contradict them at every step. " Look *-t the movement in our very midst for the prcof*. Who are the conspicuous actors here in the barnburner fsrce. if we dare so call it ? ' We recite the names wh'ch first suggest themselves as prominent. Who are Edward D. Gazzaut, George W. Jackson, George R. Riddle, Aduui Wilson, J. A Bkin. VUlliB II Whituev. John Sarber? (Conspicuous democrats, every man of them ! Dr. Gazzam has been high in the confidence of his party?nominated by tbem for Congress and State Senate. George It. Riddle was elected I'rotlionntnry by the democrats, ai d enjoyed their confidence also in an eminent degree, until he bolted f uss arid ltutler The other genI tlenicir are well known democrats; but have not we believe, been elected to office as such except Colonel Whitney, who has been elected to the City Council aa a democrat, although editing what was called an 1 independent' newspaper. ' Now we have at random named seven consplcnoua democrats wbo have bolted Cass and Dutler, to go Van liuren and Adams. ' Can any man point out a ainglo conspicuous whig, and we do not recognize one. conspicuous or obscure. who has similarly 1 bolted' Taylor and Fillmore? Not one. We challenge examination of our facta. ' The Inference ie plain and irresistible, that Taylor and Fillmore are not affected by tbo barnburner movement, while the * back-handed blow at General Cass' is not only damaging, but blasting the pYospects of the democracy. "But why is it so, wo are asked? We will answer presently. " The whig party has already, and long ago, undergone the process of decimation, which resulted in the formation of a political liberty or freo soil party. It was the bosst of the democracy that abolitionism was thinning the ranks of the whigs in 1830, in 1810, and again and more seriously, in 1844. It was quite true that wo were parting steadily and regularly with that ingredient nf oar composition. But, fortunately, it is also true, that as inrch as fonr years ago, tbo whig party bad already been purged of nearly the entire political abolitionist element of tho mass. The whig party in Pennsylvania, then, has no free soil material to render to the new movement. Net so with our opponents. " The Wilmot proviso moroinent, and the barnburner nominations bring the (kraooratlc party, for tho first time, under the process*):' decimation, which, twelve years ago, was begun unn the whigs. It is their timo now, and see with what effect the draught upon democracy is answered. < " Just us we have said, years ago we suffered from the growth of a liberty party. And now, when wo have nothing to lose, the denmcrats are held to tho samo exhausting and injurious process ; and we look on with indifference as wo do frea from suffering or damage. " This is our answer toAlI who affect to believe that the freo soil movement l^kjuriug the whig party or the whig prospects in ^Hisylvanla. IVe assure our contemporaries abroad. we ask their attention to our dfciarutinn. that th^^fctcinunt we have made is a faithful exposition cf tn^B-luro of parties relative to the free soil nomination <Hnd they may rely on it, that wl at is so true of this county and city is generally true of Pennsylvania at largo." Beaver Cooxtv.?The same paper says: "There was a tremendous whig meeting at Beaver, night bofore last. It was eloquently addressed by Michael Dan Magteban. Esq , of this city, Hon Johu II.

I deiire to eall your attention to the following, and beg that you will notice it in your paper. Every ona knows the unaccommodating spirit which exists among the managers of the Morris and Kssex ltailroad; bub now it Las grown to such an extent as to become a perfect imposition on the liberality of the publlo. This afternoon. Sept. 11, the train has been more than ? five hours in coming from Morristown to New Yora, a distance of about thirty miles. This morning, I was from 7 to lu o'clock in getting from Morristown to the city.
