Jackson, Barry, Washtenaw, Wayne, Calhoun, Berrien, Cass, Kent, Ottawa, and Oakland counties have gone for Case, while Monroe and Gennesee counties give Gen. Taylor majorities.

Nov. 18 ] Koi.uery of thk Statu Jkwki.h?Thk Thucves. ?A robbery was perpetrated on the l'aicnt Oflice, in the city of Washington, on the night of Wednnsday, the 8th inst., which is deserving of the close attention of every citizen, for many reasons above and beyond the mere nominal value of the loss. The articles were contained in a larce double glass case, which stood nearly opposite the main entrance of the great hall ?n tne second i etoiy, and consisted of a splendid gold snufl box. Hi with diamonds, pretested bv the Sulian, and valued at six thousand dollars ; a gold scabbard, belonging to a sword presented to (Commodore | B ddle by some ther potentate, and valued at i three thousand five hundied dollars ; a pint bottle of the attar of roses, of three times the value of I its weight in gold, presented by an Kastern prince; l a necklace of the most resplendent pearls, of si- I irnlar donation ; two extra large pearls, which reposed in the gold box ; a sword and scabbard of i gold, presented fo Commodore Klliot; another 1 sword Willi a diamond bilt; and several gold nw dais and Roman coins, making an aggregate of ! \alunlionof fifteen thousand dollars. The maniif r and method of the robbery appear to have been ingenious and daring in the extreme, tnd give evidence ol having hren the plan ot ex- , (leneneed felonious minds. The time selected 'hows forethought and rare judgment; for though the juire nooajubt Blfbt would, m der ordinary I ireumstancfs, have been a moat mal-apropot aeection, the rasing storm of thf Presidential can- j ktiss obscured all nicer points of observation.

The criminal to whom we allude was the renowned Tom Walker, (the former companion of the Webbs,) now inn Southern penitentiary en a ten yean' xentcnae for robbing the mail. Tins man stood interlocked with some dozen or more ot daring and heavy burglaries in Haltmi jre and New York; and liav- j ing no hope of compromise by ordinary means, he summoned an outside friend or two to his assistance, and directed the Patent OHice to be robbed.

Th<-experienced oflicers took tin- hint, nod having made all the necessary arrangements with tin: local district attorneys, cunningly advif.-d the agents of the government to raise thu reward t? fifteen hundred dollars. The five hundred dollars were added ; when lo! as if by magic, the trunk containing the missing jewels was found reposing all r< ady to the hands of "ve vigilant police." upon the deck oi the brig Mary JJright; and Tom Walker, maugrc all his accumulated crimes, was hocus pocussed into the open air. No enquiry was made after the thieves, and the government, with a dirty fondness for its worthless baubles, paid the | rice for their recovery, without making any efforts to vindicate its outraged laws; and the thieves went by with the wind?no man to question them. It remains to be seen if this latter transaction ib to end in the same way. For our part, we hope it may not. We are opposed to compromise, in toto. liather than that the thieves should buy a single day from a ten year's sentence, omobtain a j thade of favcr for an associate, by restitution, we i would see the jewels thrown into the sea, or cou erslnp in them is as great as that of tlie President ! himself. They are worthless, in every sense ; in- ' ! deed, mere baubles of barbarian caprice, and ol a value puiely visionary. As trifling as they are, however, they will not be hurt, and, in good time, will all come back again. The attar of roses will ! never be uncorked, the thieves are not fools enough I for that; the jewelled snuffbox will remain unde- ' spoiled, and the scabbard of the diamond-hilted sword will never sutler under the crucible, or even the scratch of an irreverent pin. This isa matter, however, that should give a great government very small concern. Its true inquiry is After the despoilers, and its legitimate aim, the punisument of those who havs so audaciously defied its laws. Who Stole the Government Jewels T?Under this heading, the Hiraid, of yesterday, published our hypothesis that the government jewels had been stolen for the purpose of forcing a compromise in favor of Charley Webb, now in the State prison.

Ah your papers only reach me through occasional packets, froiu thet/aited States to the Pacific, touching ut Valparaiso, and a* they ure most usually studded with interesting intelligence from all parts of the world, f suppose that lie passengers have access to them to beguile th? ediousness of so lon^ a voyage, and neglect Jo 'eturn them to their envelops and addf-as, which iccounts for ho few of tiiem being received. I have heretofore concluded that the llritish iteam mail packet arrangement, by which a Brrish steamer from England touched monthly at Vew (Orleans, with a mail for the West Tudiea an</ he Pucific coast via Panama, and thut letter* and iapers, pre|>aid at New Orleans, would reach anjr oint on this coast, was generally circulated ami mown throughout the I'nlted States ; anc I con luded, moreover, that the ijoveromcnt of tlie I nited States would be enabled, seasonably, to* eflect an arrangement with the liritish Atlantic p.k.. .1.... mu j atiuv man *" v.wiu|?iiji,n, my wuiuu public functionaries abroad would be tar mulled with tb#- earliest intelligence from the United States ; but presuming worn* such difficulty has arisen hh that which caused the failure of that most just and liberal proffer of the Postmaster General ot the 1'nited States to the Postmaster General of (!reat Britain, touching postages on letters carried to, or brought from Southampton, by United States government steamers, making that port rn route to and from Bremen, &c. lie this tie it may, certain it is, that I never receive a newlpa> vr, and rarely, indeed, a letter by the British steamer; and the consequence is, that whsn ny paja-rs, if they come at all, reach their deetinaion, their contents have, tit many weeks?yea, or months?ceased to be news in this locality." Confiding jully, as I do, that the government has nude and is making every effort to diffuse speedy ntellivence to its diplomatic and consular agents tbroau, and to make permanent arrangements heretor. yet not knowing how much longer the iccomplishment of its objects may be frustrated, ->r deferred by the obstructions cast in their way, hroui'h the exactions and unreasonableness of jthers, I have concluded, thatud interim, I would ftersonally encounter the expense, so far as the Herald and my New ()rleans papers are concerned, jy having them regularly forwarded in the iiritith mails, by the steuiners touching at New Orleans. ?n route to the West Indies. * * _ * I can hardly suppose that what follown will be news in the Inited States, ntthia time of day, but is I have had occasiouto drop you a line, auu there istpace left for its insertion, I give it here for what it may he worth. The information, however,such as it is, is tulty to be relied on,?tor f have it officially irom the British Condulatr at Valparaiso s? r. \ Letter* and newnp?p?r8 addresied to New Orleans, ot to any other port in the l.'nitnd States, may be for- ' warded by the Britiah maU from Valparaiso, provided the postage be Urrt paJd. and the 'word* Via New Orleans," be legibly infcribed outside.
