Union City, Nov. 18, 1342. Mr. Eurron: - The result of the late election n the county waB highly grntifying. The number of votes polled for the Liberty party Senatorial nominees were 57,. which is decidedly more thsn was anticipated by the mDst ardent frienda ot the oppressed. The attempt was made some weeks since, to prganize n county society, which failed, owing to the ill henlih of aome, and the absence of the remainderof those who first instigated the project. You must be av;.re; that a failure of the kind, has a tendency to put a dampcr upon the ardor of the advocates of any cause, however noble and philanthropic. To this wo attributed, together with the unhappy, though una voidable cala mity of being disnppointed a shon limo previous to tho olcction, at not hearing a highly interesting lecture dclivered beforo our citizens. by a prominent advocate of human rights "residing somewhere in the ruighborhooi af your office," the wam of interest that was manifested in the adjicont towns on the subject of slavcry. Out of 93 votea that wcre polled in this town 42 of the number were for Messrs. Husscy and Mceker. Our county ticket did not as well sueceed, owing toa want of organization, which wo trust will shoitlv bc a(Tected.
