It also pre- vailed at Salonica. Mis. Sarah L. Smith, wife of Rev. Eli Smith, American- Missionary at Bayrout, died at Smyrna September 30th. Smyrna, Nov. 80.—Wo have not heard that the Scriptures and other books have ac- tually been burnt in Smyrna, but the Greeks to deliver pver to the books, scientific, historical, the missionary presses, oks will be wanted fortheir Constantinople, Sept. 24.—Russia is pre- senting with indefatigable ardor the war against the indomitable hordes of the Cau- causes, who defend their territory inch by inch against the invaders. Mdre than 100,- 000 Russian troops are employed in this ser- vice, from which it is inferred tl>at the cam- paign will not pass away without their gain- ing some important advantages.

THE LATE ELECTION. Sufficient returns have been received from the western and south-western states, to in- sure the election of Mr. Van Buren, by a large majority of electpral vetes; probably not far from forty. This is indeed a mpst signal triumph of popular sovereignty and of sound political principles. Under any circumstances, sutli a result would have been abundant cause for proud and grateful exultation; but when viewed in reference ip. the extraordinary circumstances under wh'ch it has been accomplished, it has no parallel, at least in pur edijntry, in the history of po- litical contes^tj!)i°ugh the oppositipn af- itedjo^olilw^an Busjtm in cpntempt, Las \Srrog^tjl and absurd, his i!tr3e* presidency, it was most in utter dread ef his po- inding attitude befe'rethe Netwithstanding the stale SfS't ioiltffty, •*' What has Mr. Van Buren l«r|e|'* thev'saw the long recpMM4feR|b- Sfii„.. a lmpst every teallK^fe MEMBERS OF CONGRESS—N.

But disappointed ambition, burning for revenge, must, if possible, be gratified. If open, fair and honorable means will not ac- complish it, resort must be had te less cre- ditable alternatives and to more desperate expedients. «IJespairing of success through the influence of Webster, and Harrison in the New-Englahd and middle states, and of White and Harrison in the south and sotlth- *estern states, .it was found necessary to unite in one great coalition, to form a sort of allied power, which should embrace them all. In this wiv^, personal popularity, local interests, state pride and sectional prejudices could all be made subservient to the grand design of defeating an election of president by the people, ingly formed : The coalition was accord- each of the allied powers brought into the field its champion. Preju- dices were excited, entreaties were made of former friendships and political associations, sectional feeling was aroused, and every cir- cumstance .appealed to, which could in the least aid the success of each. Against this motley and incongruous host, the people stood firm, united and determined., With' A destruetive fire brokeout in the village of Johnstown, Mentgpmery ceanty, on the morning of the 26th tilt., which destroyed the fairest pertipn 'of the-village;, together' with the Episcopal church, and its fine bell apd, organ, presented te it by Sir William John-; stpn previeus to the revolutien.

Fellow-.citizens and friends—have not the unfortunate and suffering inmates pf pur coun- try., already found a place in your generous sympathies, in your charitable he?rtsj , s Or, ran you look upon iheinduS.bfjpus and respectable^po'dr around you, toiling\as they are under all the^iofirmities of poverty and want, and ye,t Stand; Ii(je a statue of marble, cold anil unmoved ? Can you behold the wid- owed mother leaning upon the feeble ami of her son, andjooking uptp him for help in tirhe of need, an^^t lend him your assistance,^' obtain a, home jrh the far west? Can ypul hear the oft-repeated tales of melanchely suf- fering of children, of whole families, laboring under the heavy chaius of poverty, and do as did the priest of old, pass by pn the other Side? Have yeu hearts of flesh that canhet, ^\yj|J. nbt feel anether's wee ? Shall we, or illlfiSMfce met with the cgldcontempt- Iglec); of this subject ? &bis within our reach approbation and at- ;d?and wealthy peo- pros- favor? Must we be tbldtfiat the poor are in a rich and fertile conntry and triay provide fer them- selves, er gp tp the pppr-hpuse ? We could \not have believed that we sheuld have met with this cpld and heartless, this unfeeling answer, if we had net already been ccmpel- led tp hear it. Well, be it so; we will not complain, nor will we present our petition to ^he worship- ers of Bacchus bending at the altar ef intem- perance ; we will make cur appeal tp good men, and to christians of all denominations; here is our last resort! our only hppe; they will not long remain unmoved, it is not in their hearts to see the poor in their-midst, espe- cially in their sanctuary where they acknow- ledge their dependence on God and tender him their many thanks for every thing, and yet say to the poor, in the spirit of ungrate- ful and infidel philosophy, \depart in peace.\ No, they will say no such thing. They will show by their example, the spirit of a gene- rous and sympathising heart. We cannot but hope that politicians of every name, and ministers and people of eve- ry description, will have the goodness to come forward jn favor pf petitioning .congress this winter, soliciting them to pass an act to give one hundred, and sixty acres of our public land,at the west, tc each pf our industrious and respectable poor, on conditions they go and become the actual settlers en the same. By so doing, we shall strengthen the hands of the enterprising poor, and encourage them to go and cultivate the wilderness—the un- settled lands of the west; in a few years.there JKOUI confidence and choice, republicans exhi- bited the great moral spectacle of a free peo- ple, discarding all local and sectional views** rising above all miner considerations and cordially .uniting from the east, the west, the north and the south, in the elevation, to the first office in their gift, of the man whose whole life furnishes the assurance that he will administer that nfnee in the same disin- terested spirit and davetion tp the general good, which contributed to his election. The people have not merely succeeded ; their triumph is complete. Not only has the coali'ioji been prostrated and driven from the field, but. each of tlie allies has been beaten on his own ground. Mr.. Van Buren' has not only succeedetJ-itr-Uie union, but in every part of it.. He hai TKftrfl VP'es than White in ihe south, more thar^vVjiite. and Harrison in the wesi, more than Welssler aud Harrison in the middle and eastern statesj' and throughout the union-more than all of them together. Aside front the assurance which this great and \glorious result furnish- es of a coutinuance of our prosperity and honor as a uatjon, it will teach a salutary lesson to those who may hereafter conceive the mad project of tampering with constitu- tional rights and of defeating the will of the people.

It is a good test of the imposing majesty of a large Vessel of war, that the oldest sailor will mark her every movement with as much interest as a novice who had never (rod a deck.

We are yet without positive results from Louisiana, Alabama, Illinois, ftlississippi or Arkansas. Enough has been received, however, lo render it nearly cer- tain that ihese states have gone for Mr. Van Buren. If so, his majoriiy^in the electoral colleges will be from 30 to 40. {L/\ The President's Message will be re- ceived on Thursday or Friday next.

Enough is ascertained, however, to make it certain that Mr* Van Buren can only be the representative in the Presidential chair,\ as he. was in the Governors chair pf this State, of a minority of the people.\ [N.

A few days since, ihe United States Tele- graph, the organ of nullification and disun- ion, and therefore the natural adjunct of the American, and the assailant pf Mr. Van Bu- ren, hazarded a similar assertion. It at- tempted tn prove it by figures; and by such figures as the following: For Mr. Van Buren. For the Whigs. Slates No votes Moj States Novaks Maj Pennsylvania, 30 New-York, Connecticut, Maine, N.

Is it a scarcity of the article of flour in the market, which raises the price te ten dollars per barrel, at a moment when meney is worth two per cent a month ? Or have those who had the control of money facilities, combin- ed to buy up all the wheat at moderate\pri- ces, with fhe design of speculating by a mo- nopoly of one of the necessaries of life ? Me- chanics and others have been indicted for combining to raise the price of labor; and it might be well to enquire whether combina- tions to raise the price of wood, pork, flour, and other necessaries of life, heyond a fair prefit, are net equally offences against socie- ty.

[Utica Observer.] INTERNAL IMPROVEMENTS IN LOUISIANA- From a Statement published in the New-Or- leans Standard of the 11th instant, prepared' by E. H. Barton, it would appear that when all the canals and railroads in progress or projected in the State of Louisiana are com- pleted, the length cf the canals will be 60 miles, and the cost J,450,000 .dollars; and the length of the rail roads will be very nearly 900 miles, at an expense of 15,438,- 000 dollars. The Standard adds\: There\ are private rail roads and canols-of consider- able length, on the estates of many planters, not included in the above statement. DISTRESSING SBIPWBECK.—A few weeks since we had occasion to record the loss of the British ship Doncastcr, Capt. Pritchard, which sailed on the 8th of August from the Mauritius for London, on the night of the 14tfi dftJuly.

Every soul en board perished ; and by a letter from Kleine River Valley, we learn thatthe bodies of 19 women and children, and 32 men and boys, had been washed on shore, and had been buried, The •Ship was lost about half a mile eastward to, the spot fatsd to the Jessie in 1889.

[New Era.] 1 . A correspondent at Washington says of the present acting Secretary of War, \ that it is much to be regretted, as well for the nation at large, as the army in particular, that such a man had not been selected in the first in- stance, for so hftportant a branch of the pub- lic service. Prom the shert space pf time since his entry on the duties of the office, he has closed the official docket of cases -which had been accumulating for years, and which, had they not been met by one 6f his acute- ness and business like habits and capacity, would in all probability have slumbered there for years lpnger. Mr. Butler's attention to the duties of his new department are honor- able to himself. I have known Mr. Butler to devote nine and ten hours a day to ardu- ous and incessant labor jn the War Depart- ment, and such are the? kind of men to make statesmen, and invaluable officers in this re- public. I have reason to believe, however, with all these rare requisites fpr official use* fulness and distinctien, that Mr. Butler Will retire after the 4th ef March next, as he finds to hold office ,*mder this government, is only to sacrifice fortune to disquietude and labor, without any thing like adequate compensa- tion.\ [Jour, of Com.] --£.' ^ .
