Tiik Li:<> isi.ati'uk. —The following, without being strictly accurate, says the Sacramento I'nion, is perhaps an ap proximate statement ot the results of the late election in regard to the politi cal complexion of the California Legis lative body. It is founded upon the popular vote and actual returns from most of the counties: !■• KXATK. Douglas 0, Lincoln 4, Biwkenridge 4. assucmhi.y. Douglas •)!>, Breckenridge 21, Lin coln 2<». XEIYN KI'MLH.IRY. It is also said that the (Jovernor of Virginia has resolved to call a meeting of Southern Governors at Richmond, shortly, for the purpose of conceiting measures lor the defensive, in view of Lincoln's election. Another statement is, that leading members of Congress from Virginia, re cently at Washington, said they had no idea the Virginia delegation would take their seats. It in rumored that a meeting of the Senators and lieprcsentatives Irom Vir ginia has been called, and will take place several weeks prior to the meet ing of Congress. The called session of the Virginia Legislature is believed re ally to be lor the purpose of consider ing this question. The Adjutant (Jeneral of Virginia recently visited Xcw York with a cred it of half a million of dollars, and or ders for the put-chase of complete nrin ament for the State. The secession press of South Caroli na and of other States continue violent ngitation on the subject. A strong conservative sentiment is expressed by the I'nion press South. The New York Herald s Washington correspondent says rumors are rife that extraordinary overtures from the Ue- J'Ublicans have been made to the South if Southern leaders will keep quiet; i' at Corwin sttvs Lincoln will execute tin- Fugitive Slave Law, and will not '■ouiitcnance the abolition <>f slavery in tile histrict of Columbia without the consent of the iuhabitiint ; . He alsore- polls tliiit combinations are forming which will astonish tin- count rv. Tin- Washington correspondent ot tin* X. V. Hcmidsay.c "Tin-determination and cordial union of the South against Lincoln cannot Ik mistaken. New York alone is now looked to for rescue from the dilemma of submission to sectional misrule or re sistance thereto. The Federal author ity in the slave holding States cannot possibly lie exerted by si Republican from mere default of the subordinate of ficers. What Southerner will dare in cur the odium of otHce-hnlding under a Republican President? Bailie Peyton, Bell's elector, denounces the Tciines sean who would do so, and excited crowds there indicate that they would drive the recipient of Lincoln's patron age from their midst, as if his neighbor hood was pollution. The feeling is still stronger in other Southern States. Whenever it shall become manifest that Lincoln is «to be President, there will be but one swell of popular sentiment in the South, and all the factions then will have to join in it or be over whelmed. Uncompromising opposition will be the universal crv." " Secretary Cobb retur led from Geor gia this morning, (ireat excitement, he says, prevails throughout the South on account of the probable election of Lincoln. lie is apprehensive that llien will be serious trouble in case Lincoln is elected. Tin* steamship City of Washington lias arrived from Liverpool 11111 inst. The news is important ami gives details of the battle of Voliurno. TIM* Neapoli tans estimated WU'OO strong, attacked the Oaribaldiaus on the Ist under cov er of a tli!<|< mist and carried some posi tions, and for a time succeeded in driv ing back the (iarihaldiaus whose num liers did not reach half theirs, Oarihaldi went forward revolver in hand cheering on his men, and after a desperate light of eight hours duration, the Neapolitans were broke and retreated and were pur sued dose under the walls of Capua. A Hrigadc of (iermans wasi-ut oil'from the main body of the Neapolitan army and driven to the mountains. The Oaribaldiaus took ">,OOO prisoners ami it was estimated that the Neapolitans had il,ooo killed and wounded. The loss of the Oaribaldiaus was stated at betweon 12.000 and 14.000 men. I«u --mors were current that Capua had sur rendered. (Jaribaldi had sent to the king of Sardinia for 40,000 men to be despatched immediately. Other news unimportant. Mr. Dwight I*. S. Commissioner sent to Havana, to take'the testimony oi'ex- I'ostniaster Fowler, in the case of the I'. S. against Law & Conover sureties on Fowler's ollicial bond, returned to New York oil the 2-Jd, with the rci|uiivd tes timony. A high official iu the Treasury De partment has divulged the plan of dis union at the South. The plan, if Lin i'oln is elected, is to convene a Southern Legislature by proclamation on the Nth of November, declare the I'liion dis solved, and pronouncing in favor of Hreckinridge as President of the South ern I nion. The Daily Morning Call, of the 10th novembcr, says: Tilt' I'ixiiitit>s 1 imiii which we have no returns ;it :ilI, polled vote- in 18/10. \\ e have probably about 8000 votes vet to hear IVoin. It is not expected that these will change the result, and tju«l€sjf i!it'roni the lights before us we are confident that Lincoln has curried the State. i'lumas is th<' only county that can help Douglas in the least, and that only polls a little over 2000 votes, of which Lincoln will receive more than one-third. In tliis connection we will remark that our election returns are more complete, as tlicy have been here tofore, tb.tii those published in any other journal, not excepting the Sacramento I nion. They have been carefully com piled from returns sent in by telegraph and mail, and, if false returns have not been sent in, our readers can rest as sured that Lincoln is now more than a thousand ahead, and is likclv to remain ' %■ so.

It has been our aim to let every candidate and other important personage speak for himself, make hit own platform, and vindicate (if he may) his owit consistency and the soundness of his views on the great questions which underlie our current poli tic.i. Of course, such a work can hr.vc but a compara tive merit. Make it ever so large, and still many things must be omitted that the compiler would wish to insert; and every critic will plausibly ask, "Why insert this and omit that? Why give sa» much of A and so little of 11?" Besides, it is not always possible to remember, or, if remembered, to lii!<J. all that would be valuable in a work like this. \\ e cau only say that we have done our best: let him do better who can. Inaccuracy of citation is one of the chief vices of our political discussions.- You can hardly listcu to a set speech, even from it wcll-frtform'cd and truthful canvasser, which is not marred by soratf misapprehension or unconscious misstatement of the position nnd views of this or that prominent statesman. Documents, heedlessly read and long since lost or mislaid, are quoted from thfe fluency and confidence, as though with iudubituble accu racy, when the citations so made do gross injustice to their author, and tend to mislead the hearer'. AN c believe the documents collected in this work are so j. r!:j'.cd that their general accuracy tuny be safely relied on. By canvassers of all parties, wo trust onr Text- Itook will be found convenient, not to snjr indis ponrablc. But those who only listen, and read, and retlert, will also find it a manifest hctp to n clear understanding of the issues and contentions of the day. They will be interested in comparing the actual positions taken bv Mr. Lincoln, or Mr. Douglas, or tien. Cass, or Jlr. Everett, us faithful ly set forth in this work, with those confidently at tributed to th.it statesman in the fluent hnranguo of some political opponent, who isintenton blazon ing inconsistency or proving his sincerity. To veri ty and correct the citations of a frothy declaimer is sometime i the easiest and most convincing refuta tion of his speech. If a trace of partisan Lias is betrayed in the thread of narrative which partially unites the suc cessive ro;>o:t.', bills, votes, etc., presented in this work, the error is unintentional and regretted.- Our purpose was to compile u record acceptable and convenient to men of nl( paftifrs, and which might be consulted nnd trusted by all. Whatever' is original herein is regarded us of 110 use or incrif, save as 11 necessary elucidation of the residue.— Without apology, therefore, or further explanation, the Text-Book is commended to the favor of the American public. Price £1 per copy, postpaid. The trade and clubs supplied at $l!t! per hundred. Cash orders solicited. Address. THE TRIBUNE, Tribune Buildings. New York* OPINIONS OF TIIE PRESS. '•This work will lie looked upon a* a valtiabld compendium i f the history mid position of parties, platforms, and opinions of the lending statesmen of the present times in the I'nited States. Wilito compiled doubtless with a view to fonvardittg the Interests of the Republican party during the pres ent campaign for the approaching {'residential election, its value is not confined to that ptlrtv alone but it will beseemed imlispensal/e to men of all parties, for its leading feature is the impartialit.' with which the opinions of ineu aud parties of every political shade are set forth, especially on the un happy <i<ie?tion of .Slavery generally, aud Slavery in the Territories in particular. As publicity is the breath of the nostrils to every man who aspires to, mid takes part in public life and as few such men would desire to ree their opinions without a record, even though their opinions at one time might differ from those of another—for change of opinion is one of the most legitimate of privileges, and one the most frequently practiced in all coun tries—this work can hardly be unwelcome to any of the eminent statesmen of our country, whoso record it sets forth."—f.N'ew York Transcript. '• Tlit? character and contents of this timely vol ume are very well indicated in the title page. For the manner, tod, in which the work has been done, no other assurance of its excellence can be needed after the announcement of Horace Urcely us one of its compilers. It is not intended as a partisan text-book. Tile Compilers state in their advertise ment : • '■ If a trace of partisan bias Is betrayed in tho thread of narrative which partially unites the suc cessive reports, bills, \otes. etc., presented in till* work, the error is unintentional and regretted.— Our purpose was to compile a record acceptable and convenient to men of all parties, and which might be consulted and trusted uy all." '• It Is a great mass of matter in. and we may say, of course, judiciously selected, so small a compass. We miss the Dred Scott decision. We think that might have had a place here with great propriety. It probably was (teemed supereroga tory, as too familiarly known, ortoo easily obtain able clscx*. here.
