It means that tho country is saved frou! the sectionalism which threat? ened to disrupt it and that robber tariff schemes and force bill measures will not for the present, at least, overshadow us with their.evil influ? ences. It means the utter destruc? tion of the Republican party, iu fact, unless profiting by the lesson taught them on Tuesday; it turns over a new i leaf and especially remembers when the reform begins in its rank...

The question of the sale in fee of the oyster bottoms of our State aoerus to have been put to rest by a late decision of the Supreme Court of the United State in regard to the 1 ike front ownership at Chicago.
