Vermont Election* , Wo received last ni gh 1, slips from the Spirit of the Age, Windham County Democrat, and Ver->- inont Gazolte, giving returns of the Vote for Govornor from 28 towns, which will be found below. Tbe democratic vote is larger than it was last year; the whig vote also exhibits an increase; and the abolition vole has fallen off. This decrease in the abolitioT vote has evidently added strcngUa to the waigs. Paine is probablv elected by a small majority. Fifty-nine towns have elected 18 democratic and 40 whig representatives, and in one lown there is no choice. The democrats have gained a representative in each of the following towns:— Westminster, Newtane, Braintree, Slockbridge, Pownal, and Woolford; the vvhigs have gain 1 d one iniVernon. There is, therefore, in the towns heard from, a net democratic gain ' of five representatives. 1842. 1S41. 1 ? ~S F 2 = = 5 g = = 2 " ¥1 ' SBaltimnre 26 20 1 Barnard 202 185 4 194 169 4 Bethel 127 158 23 117 125 27 Br...

Skeletons. A London paper advertises for sale tbe skeleton of Jonathan Wild, price £63. Wild is one of the leading characters in the novel of Jack Sheppard, and according to the authentic history of the limes in which he lived. the intamous light in Which he is represented by Ihe novelist, does no injustice to his true character. ^ W.iat strikes us as singular in this advertisement is (he evi fence it gives ofthe disgusting taF-te-s of the people who so fr qusntly sneer at the "uncul tiv.tted manners" and "savage" propensities of ths Ameiicuns.

The Legislature of N. York, as wil be seen l<y our report, closed its ]1 a cots *nd adjourned yesterday noon. No business of public interest has been transacted ¦beyond tbe Apportionment of the Congressional districts; which has been effected *% a bill which appears to give muchmoie ^aneril-satisfaction than we bad expected any bill that could pass would receive.— The fact speaks well for our State Legis~ lature,and offers to the Legislators ofothor states—; Ohio included—an example to which we piont'with great pleasure. According to the Vote given for Van Burenand Harrison, at the last Presidential election, twenty of the districts under the new apportionment have whig majotities.

fj^-ILLINOK WOOL.—Large quantities of wool have been sent to market from Illinois during1 the past season. An Illinois man says that that state possesses natural advantages for [be growth of wool not excelled by any ot.'ier state in the union; her immense prairies are capable of feeding inumcr&ble flocks St comparatively no cost. ' There is no doubt but the facilities of Illinois for feeding sheep are unsurpassed, but we think her flat marshy lands are unfavorable lo llic rear ng of such stock-, as it is a faet well known to farmers that sheep always thrive better and yield finer fleeces when pastured on high, dry land. In this rjspect, no stale in the union is better adapted for rearing of sheep than Pennsylvania, and we. have no doubt but our farmers will find it, under the new Tariff regulations, to their interest to embark more extensively in the wool business tuun they have done heretofore.
