The Presidential Klecllon, and Its Singular Results. The recent election oi General Taylor to the Presidency, is a singular fact in the history of this country. It is a revolution in all the elements of party and of faction; but it is a revolution only halt completed. The result of the triumph, thus far, is but she beginning ol other extraordinary movements that can be completed only by his selection, in 1852, for a second term. It presents the problem and solution oi that political revolution which made General Jackson President for a second term, in a former period o! our history; but it differs from that, inasmuch as it is a revolution 'ounded on more dignified, more national, and more intellectual elements of civilization aid numan progress. But to come to particulars. We have prepared, alter a great deal of trouble and attention* ihe following detailed statement of the element^ of the recent election, throughout the several States, as far as they have been ascertained up to his day: ?

IIHroii, B'titnckr, I/Ouiri?a?, UiMiifippi, and Virginia, *r# not ijUiifc lOBpUle, but rnuili no. These are the figures; and these figures disclose news of the past, and will scatter seeds of the future, worthy of the attention and study of the philosopher, in every country, and of every rank. The full details of this result will probably give us a popular vote of nearly three millions of intelligent freirnen, a majority in favor of General T .y. !or over Generti Cass of nearly one hundred and fifty thousand, tut yet leaving him in a inanifest minority compered with the whole vote. Be. or<? the election, it was supposed that tha movement of Mr. Van Kuren on the free ; oil question vould aid in the election of Genera] Taylor; but it is low evident, from the result, that had that question been narrowed down ihioughcut the country, between General Taylor Bid General < ass, without any separate movement f.y the free soil party, General Taylor would have probably received a popular majority in every State ol the l"nion, with the exception of South Carolina, New Hampshire, and perhaps Michigan. General Taylor's strength and the confidence which the people repose in him, have not been developed to their full extent, and will not be, until liis re election shall have come round in 1852?a le-eleetion which is positive and certain, and which la rendered indisputably necessary, from the present aspect and position of the different j tactions and elements that nave been preparing for the future, since the recent 7th of November. In some respects, th" movement that carried Gen*ral Taylor into the Preaidency is similar to that which ended in the elevation of Gen. Jackson to the seme office. When the people manifested a strong disposition for each of thoae distinguished men, the politicians at first deinu*i?d and objected against them ; and after that, divided, some for and some against them. In General Jackson's rase, h:s first term was spent and exhausted in efioit* to reduce the discordaat material* which elevattdhim to the Presidency, into a harmonious whole, and oigatuze an administration on a homoaeneous and national bails. Unfortunately for the j country, of the two leading spirits or politicians who avu led th< ms? Iv? * rf Gen. Jackson's popularity in ihaldsy?M* V*a Jiuren and JohnC. Calhoun j - ? t u i; i ' ud4* vt'y -r 'i -p I , liiiM is | .v* - ^ A 4 to get the ascendancy in C!en. Jackson's confidence, and that was Mr. Van Buren. Yet the atrcngth oj ' Grn. .Tacksen and his popularity with the American j people, were sufficient not only to give solidity and force to his administration during his two I teims, but enabled him to bring out those great nu amres which are connected with his name ? His adminifctration, however, ended, and was sue ' ce? d(ii by the unlwrtunate elevation of Mr. Van I>ur< n to. the succession, tinder the promise, on hit< part, of treading in his loot-steps?,1 promise which was violated in almost every particular, in hie subsequent policy, as it was likewise, in sum? dfgree, by lJolk and Tyler. The election ol General Taylor, and tlie prepa| rations already making (or the coming in ol the new administration upder his name, present a collection of as similar discordant materials amone those who united in his su/?i>ort, as those which characterized the first administration of Jackson ; | and it will probebly require as long a time for the intelligence and sense of the chiel magistrate elect, and the confidence of the American people 1 to reduce them to order, consistence, and nationaj ! spirit, as it did in General Jackson's case. Already the ultra whig politicians in the Northern States are beginning to organize factions and make demonstrations for the purpose of acquiring an exclusive control over General Taylor, and giving a shape to his administration for special interests, sectional issues, and miserable scrambling for office. We have had a celebrated festival in this city, at which speeches were made and claims put forth by men who were forced into the Taylor ranks and compelled to support him, after they lound the mass ot the people in his favor. A similar movement took place in Philadelphia; and a few of those who were most backward 'n acknowledging the virtue, popularity, and 1 repubhcanum of General Thy lor, before bis nomination and election, are now the mos' noisy in claiming all the merits of the vietory, and of acquiring an exclusive power over his cabinet and measures hereafter. We allude to the formation of the clubs in Philadelphia, calling themselves the " Taylor republican party," under the exclusive protection of the North Artie] rican, of that city, and the idea of establishing which is said to have emanated simply from the mind of Mr. Clayton, of Delaware, who wishes to establish, on a popular basis, a system from which he can bound into the cabinet and acquire the control of affairs at Washington. Al* ihe ultra whig journals and politicians who have assisted in the election of General Taylor in ihe great Northern cities, are preparing the same materials for acquiring control, influence, and power over the men and measures of the new administration. This is a mere repetition of the same tactics and the same [selfish scramble for office which characterized the first years of Gen. Jackson's administration, after his election in 1828. But we have much to say on these points, and we shall go into full details, personal and sectional, regarding measures and men, at our leisure, from time to time, as those factions and clubs disclose themselves to the public eye. We believe that the first term of General Taylor's administration will present a constant struggle or fight among ihe conflicting elements, which suddenly uaited previous to the great triumph, in sup.ioaing him, and that they will cause a great deal of trouble and discordance in the movements of the new administration at Washington, unless General Taylor takes time by the forelock, and is prepared to defeat their designs. The only policy, under such circumstances, for General Taylor to pur. sue, is to organize before coming to that hotbed of corruption, Washington, those general principles of action, and the measures which he means to support and associate with his name in our foreign and domesticpolicy, and then to select his cabinet advisers, as far as the lights of the dey can give him information as to their fitness and capacity ; but if those cabinet advisers should attempt to diverge from his plan of government, he should discharge them on the moment, whoever they may be?even if they are the highest men in the country. He must be clear in his views j and firm in mind ; and we mistake the character of Zacharv Taylor entirely, if he is not the man for the occasion, and has not a spirit that can meet the crisis. But there are other disclosures beginning to developc themselves among the factions of this coun" try, in relation to public affaire. What is to be" come of the remnants of that party which sup ported Gen. Cass ! What will become of the free soil organization set on foot by Mr. Van Buren 7 What are the scattering elements, small and minute as they may be, of the other factions, who did not vote at all, to do ? Where are they4to range themselves, or what direction are they to take? According to present appearances, the party which supported Gen. Cass in the recent contest is entirely disorganized, broken up, and scattered to the winds. The harmony that existed between the Northern and 'the Southern branches of it appears to be dissolved for ever. It is, we believe, from the elements of this party, North and South, that the best support will come, hereafter, to the administration of Gen. Taylor, if that administration be conducted with wisdom and foresight* and carried on with firmness. The disor* ganization of that party is nearly complete ' yet there is every appearance that some kind of organization, hostile to the admims* trntion, and carrying that hostility into the contest of 1862, will gather strength for some years to come, and endeavor to acquire aid from every quarter around it. The principal opposition may be expected to come from the free soil agitation, centering in New York and radiating throughout the Nerthern States generally. From the indications given out by the ultra whigjournals and the ultra whig politicians?such as the JViu York Erprcsi, the TribwM, the Courier and En/nircr,and other presses at the East?we should not be at all surprised to see, before three years ara past and gone, all those journals, together with Mr. Webster, ex-Governor Seward, and Tom Corwin of Ohio, united hand and glove with Mr. VanBuren and all those who created such a noise in the re" cent struggle. Already the New York Exprtu threatens to Tylerize the coming administration, jf its secret wishes and particular views are not acceded to. All of them, however, will find that General Taylor is not made of the tame imbecile and pliant materials that John Tyler exhr biird in his ch"iacter, in his short and inglorious career. In another quarter, national con. ventions of all kinds are denounced. That mode of selecting our Presidents has gone to the tcrnb of the Capulets, with the old caucus conventions. This idea is probably correct ; for there will be no necessity for any convention or any CQUCUD IU lltllllliaic ^V?. IVI aovwuuuiouil, if he have the courage, the sagacity and skill to overcome the difficulties that will spring up in his own camp during the first four years. These ?re only some views, brief glimpses, which the result of the recent election and the movements, 'hat have tince transpired, suggest to the mind. We exist in a revolutiotary age. The first nomination of (ienf rul Taylor, the progress of the canvat-s, and his triumphant election, comprised a revolution 'n itself; hut it is a revolution that is only halt completed. His first term of office will witness s constant series of email revolutions in detail, that will spring from the defeated hnj>es of ?>fiice hegaats and the sectional vif-ws of factions, tatb unci both knocking against the administration with the view of swaying it in their own particular direction, forselfish purooses. Everything jK>litical is in a state of confusion and efieivesf ence among all parties and factions throughout the Iftnd.jHfct as they were before the election which terminated so recently in the triumphant election of old Zack to the Presidency, through the means of the independent people and independent journals, aided nnd assisted by the politicians, w ho wi nt along with the current when they disrovereil its impetuosity so powerful that to resist ,ij|i jj. tnstffN?s. The Emei-tk at the Org*a IIuusk.?The recen{ turmoil at the Ojiera illustrates the characteristic! which we have, from the 1 esirsnnjr, predicted would be the ret-ult of Fry's management. Vaai* ty, pretension uud ignorance, in ecjual proportions' are ihe quitlities most in favor, it wnuld seem, with the Opera Committee, in their selectioa of a lessee. The principal achievement of Fry, so far in the campaign, has been to get up a feud with the best artiMs of hi!" company, for which he wa? signillf rebuked, on l- riuwy evening, by tue triumpnant demonstration fr< m the audience in fdvor of the great tenor. To avoid this rebuke, the house was packed? from the parquette to the amphitheatre, by the hmfera ol the fsee lift and the hirelings of the manager. At lr8st three hundred persons, who, by the F|>ei'iMl permit of Fry, were allowed to grace the Opera for the first time in their lives, wen1 there, on Friday night, drilled and trained for a performance before the curtain. The first act was to applaud Maretzek, as he entered the orchestra ; the second, to hiss Benedetti as soon as he appeared, and tc drive him off the stage at ail hazards, in order to prepare the way for the third act, which whs the appearance of Fry. The audience, anticipating sport fri>m the ludicrous figure and shaking knees of this last peiformer, listened to him for a moment, when he was promptly sent oil" the ttfege to nnnd his business. In justice to Fry, it ought to be said that he fully sustained his favorite character?t>f an ape?in which he appeared, by no means for the first time, on ths preceding Wednesday. Mortified and chagrined by his humiliating failure in the attempt to elicit sympathy from the pub lie, in the quarrel he had provoked with Benedetti, the redoubtable manager announced his intention to challenge the tenor, by the following intimation, which may be seen in our report of hia speech in yesterday's paper Circumstances betwee n us, of a private nature, are to be disposed of elsewhere." This remark was received with a shout of derisive laughter, from all parts of the houfe. Whether the preliminaries of this grand Hiwtt with mstols and coll'ee for two. are vet defi nitely arranged, we have not heard. It ia understood, however, that the meeting will take place at Coney Island, on Governor Davis's plantation. We advise Fry to devote all his spare time to carefol practice, for Benedetti is a dead shot. Anticipating, probably, the eccentric movements of his manager, Benedetti made himself a most expert marksman last summer, by shooting swallows on the wing, along the banks ot the Hudson, and exercising in the pistol galleries at Newport, with the fafamous Count Vasa Smith. Like the Count,he rings the bell on the bull's eye at every shot; and il the Opera committee wish to save their manager, we advise them to implore the prompt interference ot the Chief of Tolice; but if, as we do not duubt, they are anxious to get rid of him in some way, no matter how, leave him, we pray you, gentlemen, to the steady aim of Benedetti, who never misses his aim, either in a duello or in a duett. As for the ravings of the disappointed critics, whose ignorance an'd stupidity have encouraged Fry in a course of conduct which is certain to ruin the Opera in New ^ ork, unless the chastisement he has already received is followed by punishment, if possible still more severe, we shall devote a paragraph or two to them on Monday. We will then give the origin, history, and secret ma lives of this controversy, "lancing, as we pass along, at the giraffe who represents the Courier at the Opera; and perhaps bestowing a word upon the leader ?f a clique of polka dancers, * ho d>es up the criticism by the job for the Coitrrier de' Etat? Unit- We shall not trouble ourselves with the small fry of the 1Vibune, Mirror, fye. The Pilots.?We publish to-day the last speech of Senator Dix on the pilot system now ia operation in this city, under the act of Congress oflS87. It contains a careful examination of the whole question, in all its historical details, and in its bearings upon the commercial interests of this State, and of the Union, of which the city of New York is the emporium. We believe no disinterested pereon can read it without being satisfied that the existing law is gradually destroying the efficiency of our pilot system, ana that the only remedy is the one suggested in this apcech? a repeal of the act of ( onirress, and the organiI zation of a Board of Commissioners under a State law, with complete control over the subject of piletage, the board to consisl of three persons, one appointed by the Chamber of Commerce, one by the Hoard ot Underwriters, and one by the pilots. We ask every merchant and shipowner to read it. Its candor will commend it to their consideration; and we shall greatly err if the propriety of its suggestions is not concurred in by all excepting those who have a pecuniary interest in keeping up ihe present unjust, defective and ruinous system. Intelligence from Venezuela.?'We have before us a copy of the paper El Patriota, of the ftii November, published in Caracas. This, we believe. is the latest account received from thin re ' public, and we regret to Bay that its contents do not throw any light on the state of afiiiirs in thi* most ('istracted republic. The accounts from Maracaibo (the Beat of war) for the last few months, have been so tinsaMsfactory and confused, and the various statements published so much tinged with the partizan feelings of the writers, that we are absolutely in the dark as to what is going on. Kvery arrival from Curacoa brings news of Monngab'fleet or Paez's troops being about to do something or go somewhere; but we have never been able to learn tha' they have done anything* except cruise about and brag against one another, much after the tashion ol that famouB king of ancient timet, who, ' With ten thousand men Went up the hill and then came down again ! ? meantime keeping Venezuela in uproar, destroy, ing her commerce, and paralyzing all the resources of the country, which, at the time of the com. mencement of these movements, were just begin, ning to b? developed. The only positive item which we see in the Pairiota, however, seems to 'ndicate that the British government is inclined to interfere in the matter. The vast commercial inerefcts which British subjects have iu Venezuela, have probably induced their government to ake the step which is mentioned in the following notice, which we translate literally from the Patrwta.? Wa hava bean informnd. in a most po?it!ra manner, tli.i U n VI Mlnliltr />? i ?- - - ? - w,-'b? liuru ru? merston, bw given the British mlnlnter* in Holland. Denmark New Granada. St. Domingo, and Haiti, special Instructions to inform tha resoectire government* to which they ar? accredited, that H. B.

It is to be hoped that this will put a stop to the fittting out of expedition?, on either side, at neutrJ points. If either of the contending parties have the interests of their country really at heart, and per. sonal ambition has no place in their hearts or action?, surely in this enlightened age, something might be done to settle differences. The trouble in tht Be republics seems to be that the minority will not submit. Let them take a lesson from these United States in that particular. The cheerful submission of the minority to their defeat is one of the most shining features in the character of the masses in the United States. Marin* Affairs. A Nmw Losneit Packet.?Messrs.

Pile Theatre.?We are exceedingly happy In having it in our power to announce to our reader* and the public generally that the benefit for the family ef the late Edmund Simpson, K.pq , late lessee of this establishment. will positively take place on Thursday evening, the 7th instant. This intelligence, He are sure, will ba pleasant tidings to all who had the pleasure of Mr. Simpson's acquaint, ance during his life?to all who knew his ardent dev? tion to the drama, and his sacrifices to sustain it in 'ts dignity?to th* thousands of his friends and admirers, and to nil who are acquainted with the oir | ennisiances in wmcn ms demise mi nis numerous family, after nearly half a century of honorable exertion in contributing to the public amusement, and the cultivation of the intellectual taste of oitizens. Those clr mm-turces, we grieve to say, are quite different from what we wocld'like them to be; and far the pur pso of improving them, as well ax to pay a public tribute of respect to Mr. Simpson's memory, is the object cf the proposed benefit. That it will in every sense be a benefit, one worthy of the occasion, and of our character ft* a community, we do not entertain a doubt; it would be almost impious to do bo. We shil1 in due time give the programme of performances in full, and shall merely state Bow, that It will be worthy of the occasion, snd will be enacted by a galaxy of talent from the theatres of this and the neighboring cities, the equal of whioh has seldom been seen on one occasion before. Pakk Th? at it.?Tbere was a good attendance at the Park last evening, the occasion being the benefit of Mrs. Shaw. The patrons of the Park theatre hare, for weeks past, seen and acknowledged that Mrs. Shaw lent lustre to the attractions of the house; and it was to be expected that, on this occasion, they would havs come out, one and all. to show how much they valued such an acquisition as has been presented to them during ht-r enKug^ment at this house. The plays advertised for the occasion were ' Love's Sacrifice" and the " Love Chase " Of the first of thes? plays it is enough to say, that in every passage, in every line, Mrs. Shaw displayed the aotress and the artist. Her Margaret Elmore Is far beyond the ordinary list of popular characters; it is a beau idtal of its style, and if any one is onmnetnnt to the task of illustrating the Dart. that one is Mrs. Shaw. Suffice it to say that she did ample justice to the part last bight. In some of the characters ot the piece she was ably seconded?in some, indeed, she was not; this is but an honest expression. In fact, the pieoe was sot as well cast as we hare seen it by the same manager. With the after piece. ' The Love Chase," we can find no fault; it was well put upon tho stage, and went off well In both pleoes Nir?. Sbaw acquitted herself admirably, and concludes j bcr engagement with full as many friends as she com' menced it. She Is. beyond a doubt, one of the very first actresses in America. On Monday, the Monplaisir irouye are to appear at this house in the ballet of ' Ksmernlda,-' and no doubt the old friends of the trovj>t will all be there. Bowery Tiikathi. ? The new tragedy of " Gene_ viove" has been played ev?ry evening, save one, dur. ing the past week, with considerable suocess. The piece 1b tercied a tragedy?it might more justly be ttyled a melo-drama. as the Incidents in it are morg stirring, and in the style of the modern pieces termel " spectacles," than the serious, grave tragedy?dukes and barons, seneschals. retainers, scenes of combats, comic fighting men, warriors disguised as monks, and all the staple incidents of melo-drama, being plentifully interspersed. Miss Wemyss, as Genevieve, the unjustly suspected wife, enacted her part well. We should, however, prefer seeing this talented young a> tiets in some other parts, which, in the range of the modern drama, she could fill most admirably. The dancing of Signora Ciocca and Siguor Neri has been most rapturously hailed by the audiences. These dancers are certainly most excellent, and such good ones have not been presented on the Bowery stage for a length of time. The Signora, especially, is an immense favorite, and her appearance each evening is tbe signal for the most tremendous applause. The amusing farces in which Winans acts so comically, and pretty dramas wherein the little Misses Denin are so clever, have made up the bills each evening, muoh to the satisfaction of the audiences. During the comirir week quite a novelty will be brought forward, viz: Herr Driesbach and his lions, tigers, and other animals. They will appear in several dramas, written especially for the introduction of tbe animals. Broadway Theatbe.?The popular oomedy called 11 The Mountaineers, or Love and Madness," was performed here last evening, and by an excellent oast.? Mrs Blake, as Agnes, sustained the part with muoh cleverness, and the character of Ladi, by Hadaway, teas a humorous personation I ne cast was well cliopen. and all acquitted themselves with much ability. The entertainments of the evening pasted off with much success. A new and attractive feature is about to be added to tbe entertainments which are nightly presented at this excellent theatre, in the engagement of the renowned and original Tom Thumb, who will appear to-morrow evening, far the first a public theatre in this city. The fame and reputation of the little (Jeneral have already mad* a" loud noise in tbe world," and many whore curiosity has been gratified by a mere look at tbe smallest and most perfect specimen of humanity of the same age in the world, will Hock forward to hear him perform as a regular aster. The Je'.uf of tbe celebrated Tom Thumb will be an event in tbe history of the stage, and his engagement here will prove a source of much attraction. He will appear in an entirely new romantio and musical burletta, called " Hop o' my Thumb." NationalThf.atke ?Great have been tbe audiences at this house every evening daring the past week, and on Friday evening especially, (Mr. Purdy's benefit.) tbe orowd was immense, and the performances went off with much fclat. We were glad to see Mr. Flynn so well received as he was. He acted the part of Thomas, in the laughable farce of the '-Secret," in exoellent style, thus proving that though he was killed off. (by report.) a few weeks ago, he is all alire, and in firstrate condition. The great attraction of the week has been Mr. Canfleld. the strong man. who has baen performing feats that are almest incredible; for instance, having a large oannon, that makes six stout men bend 6 gain to raise it, placed o* his breast, and fired off while in that position-breaking a large sized rope, (four strand, we believe.) by muscular exertion alone ? and many other feats of the same nature. Burlesques, farces, and the beautiful speotacle of tbe "Spirit of the Waters," have formed the rest of the entertainments. The company at the National is a firit-rate one, and Chanfrau, by his judicious selection of pieces and casts of character, shows them all off to the best advantage. During the coming week a variety of novelties will be prodnced, and the entertainments will oontinue to be of the most pleasing nature. Bvstox's Theatre.?The entertainment last evening was set apart frr the benefit of Mr. T. Johnson and a well-filled house was the result. The perform! ance commenced with the u Printer's Apprentice,'' which is a very good thing, and was exceedingly well played. After which, the4'Musioal Arrivals," which, as ntual, received the renewed applause of the delighted audience. The evening's amusements concluded with the laughable piece called "Tom and Jerry in America," In which Mr. Barton and Mr. Brougham keep the bonse in one eonstant roar of laughter, by their wit and drolleries, not forgetting to gire a severe hit at the foreigner who visits America for the purpose of writing a hook.* The performances were goad throughout, and we don't know of a more amusing place than Barton's theatre, to spend the evening. Broadway Circus ? The entertainments here last tvening, were as attraetlve as usual, and the equestrian exercises wtre exoelient, as performed by the oonpany. Ibe engagemert of Mr. Sergeant, together with some of the members of the oompany who had been attached to the oircas of Sands. Lent fc Co , will ad J considerably to the excellent talents of the troupt who already sustain the high reputation of this splendid circus. The accommodations and great attentions paid to visiters, together with the general character of the performance, insure for the Broadway Circus a deserved share of publio patronage. Chrisiv's Minstrels will, during the ooming week, continue their very pleasing entertainments, whiohare now so celebrated throughout the Union E P. Christy, the manager, is most successful in all hii arrangements, and tha concerts given by him and his band are looked on by all musical amateurs as most elegant, and, indeed, scientific displays of music. New Ori.kaks Skrfnaokrs.?These elegant singers are rapidly increasing in public favor Their entertainments are most delightful ones, and elicit immense applause from the highly respectable audiences tbat attend nightly. The way in which they imitate tha European Opera celebrities, and tfte original and novel effects produced by tha bone player, surprise and delight every one. They will continue their eonoerts next wei k. CaMrBEt-i.'s Miw.-trfls , with their scientific touohes on the banjo, and the other instruments used in their Ethiopian performances, bava gathered around their Btai<dard lots of friends and patrons. They are continually adding to their stock of music, and their hearers are continually adding to their stock of fame, and cash too, we should think. Thus their names are now known fm* atirl wide as a most delightful Hut of nerformers. They will continue their concerts during the coming week.

Irssage of the Governor of North Carolina, Both branches of the Legislature of North Carolina havlnc finally organised at Ralelsh. N. C.. on tha 28th nit., Oovernor Uraham sent in hh biennial nnugi. It oonninoM with the expression of gratitude to an all bounteous Providence ror HU great favors. It then prooeeds to itate that the ramof $11,230 had been drawn by the Governor from the treasury at various times, for the returned Mexican volunteers of North Carolina, wbioh sum, on presentation of the proper vouchers, will be refunded by the United States. The message then proceeds to the fiscal affairs of the State. Its resouroes have been sufficient to uphold publio credit, yet little progress has been made in extinguishing the State debt The message refers to the several reports for fuller information on this Important head, it appears from the message that the revenue for the present year amounts to *(W H04 60, which, if raised to $100,000, will leave a deficit of $40,000. for the supply of which the (Governor suggests a tax of two cents additional on tha hundred dallars, which, with the claim on the War Department, and a mortgage ?n a toll bridge, will prove sufficient for the ne cesslties of the State. The message then proceed* to state ths condition of ths Raleigh and Oaaton Railroad, the lawjsuits going on to reoover moneys due the Stat e, and refers to the proper reports for further information on thii head. The message advooatea tis propriety of continuing to extend to those railroads the State's credit, upon the same terms as heretofore, so long as they continue to meet the aceruing interest with punctuality The measage then, after enlarging upon ths want and ths necessity of good roads and means of transport, urges the Legislature to abandon further hesitation, and adopt at onoa a suitable system of internal improvement. First, It recommend* a railroad from Ralstgh to Charlotte, ths distance beiing about 100 miles; states that ths coal would not axoeed $1 000 000. and urges, by many arguments, the benefits and advantage* to be derived from this and other roads to be oonatruotsd. Knrther, to stir up the Leglslatnrs to improve tha means of ooaveyance, the message concludes this point by assarting that the means of coaveyanea In North Carolina are In tha same state as thay wars In England In the times of Philip and Wary. The mearaga then proceeds to reoommend an extensive geological survey of the State, after which it recommends alterations to the oonditlon of the pauper luaatlet of tile State. It then proceed* to recommend a survey ?nl public r?l< of the Stats land*, I ? ?I deprecating the holding them bark any longer for higher price* Some change* In the legal arrangement* of th? State are then renommen led. An ao> count is then glren ot tho coad'tlcn of the llt*.~ar/ fund, and iU disposition among the several schooli, for the promotion of edocation. It then .- oom,n?nd4 a revision of the State military oode, and au^gest* tho propriety of erecting a simple monument of native material, for Oeaerals Nash and Davidson. who were both killed lr. bsftl?jn the war of independence It also give* notioe. that Mr. Badger's term expire* ru the 4th March next, and it will h;? th? ilniw nf f?.? l.egislatuie to eleot another United SUtea'S?n*ti; frfin the St?te of North Carolina. The then after a few local topics are di*po??d of ooneerninjr the rteu'b* of numbers. .\c . ooncluJe* ia terms of cordial thanks and assuranoes, See. Important from Ohio. The Lboislati hk?The (Jener,tl Assembly of Ohio will assemble (says the Cincinntti Gazette of the 28th tilt.> at Columbus, on Monday next ? The Senate is a lie, made eo by the election of a democrat in the whig district of Summit and Portage. In the House, the whigs have elected a m ijonty of four, including the two members from this city, though, bv the mistakes of some of the election clerks in Portage and Medina, in spelling and ceitifying the names ol the persons voted for, the certificates of election, in those two counties, have been isBUt d to democrats. But the whigs in both counties will obtain their seats, unless the House decides directly against all former precedents and rules established and acted upon by all all parties, ever since the government was organized?rules established by the nearly unanimous vote of the members of that body, when the democrats were in the majority. Violence has been threatened by our political opponents; and the i convention of May last sought to organize the party to carry out the disorganizing and revolui tionary plans of reckless and violent m?n. Great anxiety, therefore, pervades the community on this subject. Much, very much depends on the action ! of the wings on Monday next. If ouririends falter i or make a false step, the Legislature is put in i jeopardy. It the law is trampled under foot, and the two wliigs from this city are refused seats, and the two democrats admitted, the revolutionists obtain the control. What will be done we cannot tell. The remarks below, from the Ohio State Journal, I should be read and seriously pondered upon. We : concur with the Journal, that the whigs should ' take care to ascertain what is right, claim nothing i uut niiui uiiuti 111 %r i.wiicm 11 ui u/u HI1U Itt Wd IBCieririJT I right, and submit to nothing that is wrong, i'he Journal *ays:? " A very general impres-ion hM obtained throughout the State, that violent measures will be resorted to by the democrats, to maintain the monstrous claims put forth in their behalf We know of nothing in tha character of the members e'eot of the Legislature, to warrant any such supposition. And yet, we are aware that there are men of desperate character and fortunes wbo have resolved that, come what will, their party shall have and maintain a numerical asoendanoy in the Legislature. We brieve it to be the purpose o." these men to take jurisdiction of the subject, and compel their partisans in the Legislature, no lent rolem, t? assert and insist upon the monstrosities to which we have adverted What would be the ultimate edeot o ' buch an attempt, npen the minds of honest men of their own party, is not for us to prediot. That is a question for such men to determine for themselves. We may, however, be permitted to say in this oonneotion. that there is no obligation whatever, moral or political, resting upon the whigs of the Legislature to respeot there extravagant pretentions. It is their duty, in the first place, to nee well to it that they claim notbirg but what is clcarly r'ght; and hi\ing>4one t*<is, it is no less their duty to be able to say to their constituents on their return home, that they have submitted to nothing wrong. We have great oontideace that the whigs in the ooming Legislature will be found amply equal to these duties. We do not believe that there is a roan among them base enough to pander to more partisan pretence-nor one craven enough to cower before any bravadoes that mav bs put forth to intimidate ttiem We believe they will oome up to the councils of the State with an honest purpose of ascertaining what istheright? and an invincible determination ot doing it. ' Error of opinion may be tolerated when reason is left free to combat it," but if violenaa be resorted to for the maintainsnce of error, we hop* and believe that the whigs of the Legislature will b?? iouda competent to aevise ana euioroe the ampliV and appropriate remedy " >r<at Sjnilmt!l",Vr Meotlne for Germany A large meeting of the friend* of Germany was beld lafit night, at the Apollo Saloon, for the purpose of taking measure! to aid Gtrmany in her strngglo for freedom There were about one thousand persoaspre" sent, and a more enthusiastic meeting has not been witnessed in the city. The meetiDg was organized by calling Christian Scbwarzwaelder, Esq , to the ohair, and appointing a number of vice presidents and secretaries. John Cammerfcrd wan called upon, and delivered a very spirited address, in KngWsh. after which the Marsellaise was played by the Saiomans, who wer? in attendance. The followiog address and resolutions were then read by Dr. Makle, and unanimout<ly adopted:? AUDUKSS. An important crisis has arrived in the afUirs of Germany . The people are weary ot centuries of oppression and misery, brought about by the insatiable ambition of a host of traitorous princes, who reduoed the German nation, once the most powerful of Kurope, to beiDg the tools and laughing stock of foreigners. The people, therefore, with a wonderful unanimity, struck Isr freedom. The events of last Maroh -.the barrioadea of Vienna and Berlin?proved to the world thatin Germany there were still hearts worthy of the days of Hermann, who trod the eagles of Rome under his feet. The fact that the Germans, last spring, spared and forgave their princes, who bowed tremblingly and uncovered before the people-afterwards thanking them for their oontiding magnanimity by renewed acts of treason and tyranny?proves the want of political forecast on the part ot the people, but no laok of oeurage. The fall of Vienna, after a rtrugglw that reminds u? of the deeds of the Spartans, was the result of inexperience and treason, but it cannot shake, in the least, our belief in the ability and firmness of purpose of the German penple to throw off the yoke of their tyrants. The blood of the brave students and ?mkln?m?n nf tbat ill feted city, destroyed by barburlans, crioa aloud for Ttngence, and the day of retribution is near at band. A? American citizen*, we cannot butriew with tne deepeat emotions the death rtruggle of the German Kople, whose children form a large part of this power1 nation, and believing tbat free oonntrie* atone ara our safest friend*, we ctfer the following resolution*: ? Hteolved, That * e deem it no violation of our duties, as American citi/ana, to aid by poouniary mums the dcrinan psop'e in tlitir ttnifgit for freedom, vhUe ?e d.stard all idea* of au arncd invasion hom this country.

Dr. Korkch being called for, made an eloquent ad. drea* in the German language, which was followed by another from Dr. Makle. of tbe same character. Sevt ral other speeches, in English and German, were then made, and the band disooursed some of the patriotic airs of this country and Germany, which were received with *houts of approbation. Three hundred dollar* were contributed. The meeting adjourned at a late hour. The utmost harmony prevailed throughout.
