Tlie Result in North Carolina. , !
The result of the election iu thiState i
may be summed as follows: We have

rorn bv :i handsome n.aiority, estimated i
sit jS.tXKJ. We have redeemed tho hi st anu
third districts electing those gallant gen
tlemen, Latham aud Shackelford, in the
places of Martin and Russell. Latham
will have at least one thousand majority,
while Shackelford is elected by a still
lafger majority.Ve have elected Cox,
Dowd, Scales, Arm field and Vance. In
the second district,! tlie Dutch have taken
Holland, and our'indefatigablo and eflS-
cieut uojuinee, Hon. W. II. Kitchen, was
unable to overcome uic ei;cii wtwou
black majority wliich confronted him at
the polls. As the net result we have gain
ed one member of Congress. We have

elected our judicial ticket and have add
ed: per ma netttly to the strength of our
Srtperior Court bench in the persons ot
the pure, incorruptible and learned Ben
nett and Gilmer. We have e.ected a Lem
oclatic Legislature, and havethui perpet
uated the reforms j which Judge j Buxton
and the Republican, party were jcommit-r
ted to ieneal. We have carried every
thing in Nprth Carolina that could be
The details from! the counties j come m
so'slowly that wo postpone making any
tabulated statement of the votes until to
morrow. The reported raajoritjies from
fifty-five counties give Jarvis a iiet ma
jority over Buxton of 3,841. These coun
ties embrace two-thirds ot the Mate vote
as east in the Vance and Settle election,
thfeir aggregate vote being 157,597 in 76.
They gave Vance 7'013 majority.! In them
there has beenv falling ofl: of 3,172 from
Vance's majority. In the remaining 39
couuties.Vance's majority wasG ,172. We
ha!ve no reason for janticipating any fall
ing off in these counties? but if the same
ratio of loss should be continued, Jarvis'
majority in them would-be 5,000, making
in that event his total majority oyer 8,uuu.
jn the first district uine counties that
gave Yeates in 187G auiajority of 1,188,
are how reported as giving Latham the
same. The other counties in the district
will. not materially reduce this majority.

Saturday, Nov. 6th, 1830.' The- elec
tion returns are much more favorable to
day for the cause of Democracy, both in
the State and the country at large.

most brazen fraud, and if it is cast for
them Hancock must talce Ins seat. 1
Nothing, then, can deprive him of a
majority of the Electoral College except
the purchase of Florida, which is even
now being attemi)ted.
Let the Democrats guard whatisalrea-
dy theirs and see to it that the State of
New York is not wrested from them by
fraud, and the people will seat Hancock
in the White House despite the treachery
corruption and violence of the reckless
Philadelphia Timed Independent.
The Ttmes believed that the election of
a tried seldier, patriot and statesmau like
Wiufield Scott Haucock would have pari-
tied the administration of the government,
diiinified the the civil .ervice, promoted
the now assured business prosperity of
the country, and effaced forever the dem-
on of sectional strife; but, disc-bunting
tlie result bv all than power, money and
violence could acconinlish. the election of
Gen. Garfield -will be accepted by the
country and thd world as the considerate
choice of thtf American nconle.and to that

Yes, "it bnsted in Rowan," and liaised
up a spirit of indignation which will only
relent with, the Hie time ot those who
fousht the machine managers. !
The returns sofar received indicate that
the Republicans have bought the vote of
New York and Connecticut for Garfield.
They have intimidated not less than :J,000
voters of Connecticut and the entire Re
publican gains in the country towns can
be shown to be the direct result of bribery
of voters. Mechanics have'been bulldoz
od aud formers and rustics have beeu
bought. That is tho situation, j New
York's vote has been gained for tho Re
publicans by money and intimidation.
What will be the outcome of the election?
Congress should appoint committees of
investigation and trace this money to the
hands from . which it emanated.- Those
who have intimidated voters should be
shown up. - When the facts are all learn
ed it will ba established that Hancock is
thehoice of the people, and is the law
fully elected -President of the United
States. Corruption and iutimidation
should not be tolerated. The, truth should
be made plain and the trne result declar
