Illinois- At the last election, Liberty votes were given in 23 Counties, 527 votes in all. Last year, 157. The Democratic majority in the State is 354. At the recent election for President in Texas, only about 10,000 votes were given. Consequently each voter's share of the public debt is upwards of eleven hundred dollars! Pretty fair for so young a Republic! How convenient it would be for these slave holders to become annexed to the Union, and get Uncle Sam to shoulder the whole load for them! A Steam Canal boat came through from Albany to Buffalo just before the canal closed. Its average speed in the canal was six miles: in Tonawanda Creek, ten miles per hour. It is said that the factory girls of Lowell, Mass. have on deposite in the Savings Bank, upwards of $305,000. The whole number of depositers is 978. It is said that it is very common for one girl to have $500 on deposite.
