Election Be suits. ] It appears, b^ our latent exchanges, that the election in Jhe State <ff New York, has resulted disastrously to thje Democratic party. In short, bur Democratic brethren of die Empire State, have beten "routed, borse,s foot and dragoon." To what this unexpect-? ed and astounding result is attributable, is of question of importance <^nd attended with no little intricacy. It cjertainly cannot be? ascribed to an unremitting rain storm, ai was a similar, disaster which occurred in thes old Keystone ^tate, on the 13th of Oct. ult< Indeed, we begin to suspejet that the editor of the HarrisburgtArgus was notanuch "wide of correct" when he"said:] • "We regret |o perceive that a large poH tion of the Democratic papers of this State continue to attribute the cause of our late! defeat to the storm which prevailed on the? day of election.

j Railroad Accident and Providential j Escape. The Philadelphia Inquirer of the 3d inst. says: "A serious nnd alarming accident occurred yesterday to the Radroad Line which left New York at 6i o'clock A. M. While] crossing the bridge over Rancocus Creek, { it was discovered that the " draw" was not i let completely down. The danger was im- i minrut, as there was not sufficient time to prevent the train from reaching the open j draw, such was the headway of the locomo-1 live. The conductor,, brakemnn nnd engineer behaved with the utmost coolness, and contrived to detach the cars just at the very moment that the engine touched the edge of the aperture or-chasm. Another instant, , and the locomotive was plunged into the creek, which is broad and deep, and disappeared beneath the waters—t|ie cars remaining, and the numerous passengers saved, as if by providential forethought and coolness on the part of the individuals we have named; from frightful danger, injury, wounds and death....
