Up to the time of going to press on Wed nesday afternoon none bat the most meagre jsturns of Tuesday' election have reached ua, and they only from districts surrounding or within easy access of our town. In Eb ensburg borough and Cambria, Munster, Car roll and one or two other townships, there hare been Democratic gains, hat Blacklick, Jackson and a number of other districts are reported to have given still heavier gains to the Radicals, and as things now look. Cam bria county has done no better, if she did so well, for the Democracy as at the October election. The only other information we can gain is that Pennsylvania has gone Republican by a largely increased majority over the previous election, but it is impossible to determine at so early an hour whether tLis is true or not. Philadelphia, it is alleged, has given a Rad ical majority variously stated at from four to fifteen hundred. If this be true ...

THE FREEMAN. EBEH3BURG, PA., Thcesday, : : : : : Nov. 12, 1S63. Tbe Result or the Election. The election is over and the Demo crats are defeated. We bow submissively to the will of the people, an expressed through the legitimate channels. We labored earnestly and honestly to prevent thi3 result, believing, as we did, that Radical success would perpetuate the evils under which our country is laboring. Our gains have been large, as compared with the Presidential election of 18G-1, but not sufficient to overcome the majori ties by which the Radicals retained the power they had acquired in 18C0. Still those gains have given us a large increase of strength in Congress. In all of the Middle and some of the Western States we have shown additional strength. This will tend to check the downward tendency of our national legislation. While the Democrats have been defeat ed the Radicals have not been successful. An early survey of the field satisfied the Radicals that they could not carry the e...

BUir as oar candidates fur President and Vice President, was what Talleyrand, the French diplomat, would have termed "worse than a crime it was a blunder." We were quite as well satisfied before the election as since, that a majority of the legal vote of the United States was Dem ocratic and Conservative, and that all we needed to insure success was a ticket upon which all the Democratic and Conserva tive force could have been concentrated. This might easily have been done. Grant himself was a Democrat, and is a Conser Tutive. His sympathies never was, never oan be, with the Radicals. But leading Democrats of the ultra school exerted all their powers of centrifu gal attraction to repel him from our organ ization.
