COLUMBUS, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 26. The Late Elections—Democracy. It is a matter of congratulation with every pa triot of the country that the Democracy at the North have fallen in a struggle for principle. Iti'-- ing above the horizon of present passion and local prejudice, they planted themselves upon those im mutable truths which have heretofore guided as a beacon light the Democratic party and preferred a temporary defeat ton sacritice of principle and on ill-gotten victory. The Republican party stooped to every subtifuge for success and had no bond of union except the cohesive power of spoils. They gathered to their embrace protective tariff and dis affected Douglas Democrats and free-labor Amer icans and fought with a desperation worthy a bet ter cause. The renegade Forney—whose vault ing ambition had overleaped itself, whose disap pointment and chagrin at not receiving n high of fice from the President burned as a brand in the quivering flesh—used all his great powers to de feat his old friends and accomplish a victory for his former enemies. Notwithstanding this unholy alliance against the Democracy, we find men, like Hon. Jf Glancey Jones of Pennsylvania, rejecting the olive branch tendered them of a high impost on iron and clinging to the old time-honored demo cratic principles with nil the zeal and honest en thusiasm, that the Christians of the Middle age hugged to their bosoms the Holy Cross. Is not the prestige of such a defeat worth a thousand vic tories? In lowa and Indiana, however, the Democracy have triumphed : and the true men of the party are encouraged to believe that in those places where it has met with defeat, it has been accom plished by an opposition whose elements are in congruous and whose union will prove to be a “rope of sand”—Then the democracy should not be dis heartened. The voice of the South will soon speak in tones of approbation to those true men at the North who recently fell in the hard-fought Le compton struggle— —“paying a tribute of just applause To those who died in such a cause.” The Administration, too, has gallantly stood by the South. The tone of the Washington Union to wards those democrats who hankered after the flesh pots of Federalism—who advocated an unjust dis crimination against the agriculturists of the coun try in fa vor of a-few manufacturers of iron—is in deed significant. It proves conclusively that the Administration with principle for its guide will oppose all false doctrines with the same purity of purpose and patriotic motive, which actuated the iron-nerved Jackson to demolish a United States bank or veto iniquitous internal improvement bills passed by Congress—All honor to the Administra tion and its faithful followers! Comptroller General's Report. We resign a large portion of our space, this morning, to the able report of Peterson Thweatt, Esq., Comptroller General for the State. The whole report displays a degree of energy and in dustry in the collection of facts, and of just obser vation upon our system of taxation which may not be-found in other papers issued from that otlice, before the installation of the present incumbent. cinct and lucid exhibition of the finances of the State, their manner of distribution, and the prob able condition of the Treasury at the close of the fiscal year 1859. It assumes, or rather demon strates, that alter paying the ordinary expenses of the State Government, reducing the public deb s4s,ooo, and setting apart for extraordinary apt propriations the sum of $50,000, a surplus will main in the Treasury of $219,325 10 to be devoted to whatever purpose the Legislature may direct. This is certainly a flattering representation of the financial condition and prospects of Georgia. It is based, mainly, upon the assumption (to the truth of which the experience of the last eight months imparts a high degree of fixedness) that the IV estern and Atlantic Railroad will continue to yield a nett income of $25,000 per month. In compliance with an Act of the Legislature making it the duty of the Comptroller General to accom pany his Annual Report with such recommenda tions with respect to the revenue laws of this State as to him may seem proper, Mr. Thweatt has in dulged his leisure at considerable, but not too great length. We have read his suggestions carefully, and heartily concur in every recommendation ho has made. Our space will not allow us to consid er them here, but we will advert to some of them at an early day. llis views are so just and bear upon subjects of such general interest that they deserve to be pressed upon public attention. It will appear from the tables annexed to the report, that the Comptroller General has not confined himself to the requirements of official duty, but has carried his exertions beyond them, and collec ted much statistical information having an inti mate nnd important relation with subjects which, doubtless, will claim tho early and earnest atten tion of our Legislature. We allude to the sub jects of Education, Free and Common Schools Ac. YV e feel confident that the report will commend itself to all who will take the trouble to examine it. and will win for Mr. Thweatt the meed of praise which it is always the pleasing duty of a people to accord to a public servant, who discharges his official obligations with so much energy and faith fulness. Give us a Chance. The receipts of the Muscogee Railroad, although large beyond precedent, are greatly diminished by insufficient means of transportation. The cause of this lies not in any deficiency of rolling stock owned by said Company, but in the fact that the ears, freighted at this point with cotton, are not returned with sufficient promptness by the roads east of us. Y\ e are not acquainted with the diffi culty which may lie in the way of a remedy for this state of things and cannot, therefore, charac terize the responsibility which they incur for this neglect; but, it is apparent that the result must be very prejudicial to this market. There are now awaiting shipment 3,000 bags of cotton and only a dozen cars are here to do the work. No wonder our market has been and is depressed. We hope the Central and South-Western Roads will have a care for our situation and do whatever in their power lies to relieve us. Tiie Next Elections.—Elections for members to Congress will be held in Massachusetts, New York, New Jersey, Delaware, Michigan, Illinois and Wisconsin, on Tuesday, the 2d day of No- Tmber.

To His Excellency Joseph E Brown, Governor : Sir :—ln compliance with the provisions of an act of the 28th December, 1843, I have the honor to lay before your Excellency a statement of the receipts und'disbursements at the Treasury during the fiscal year 1858, showing a balance in the Treasury at the end of the year, of $455,918 65. Of this balance $455,918 65, now in the Treas ury, there is, however, unavailable, the sum of $325,564, consisting of the following items, viz: Bank stock, (Education Fund.) - - $290,900 00 Stock in Milledgeville and G. Rail road, - - 20,000 00 Darien Bank bills, - 2,237 75 Western A Atlantic R. R. Script, - - 4,784 75 Uncurrent funds, - 7,642 0U Total, --- - $325,564 00 Leaving an available balance in the Treasury of $130,354 65 to meet the balance unpaid on the appropriations for 1858, amounting to the sum of $110,130 43. There was an available balance in the Treasury on the 2tth October, 1857, of 112,- 262 16, to meet appropriations unpaid, amount ing to $84,111 36; leaving the sum of $28,151 80, as a balance in the Treasury after paying all the appropriations for 1857. An abstract from the books of this office, accompanies this report as required by an act of the 23d of Dec., 1539, setting forth the amounts of the general appropriations, both common and special, under their respective heads: The dates and amounts of warrants approved : In whose fa vor drawn; and, The balance undrawn of each appropriation. And as required by the act of the 26th of Dec., 1821, an exhibit is herewith submitted, showing the amount of taxes with which the inhabitants of each county in the State stands charged in the digests returned to this office by the several Re ceivers of Tax Returns, for the year 1858, from which it appears that the tax assessed amounts, in the aggregate, to the sum of $441,965 06. Receipts and Disbursements ok the treas ury. Of the Receipts into the Treasury during the fiscal year, 1858, there was received : On account of the General Tax, 1857, $390,897 20 Net earnings, Western and Atlantic R.

The reason for this is: Ist, more of the old tax claims that were worth any thing, were collected last year; and, 2dly, there was received in ISSS, $11,332 68, less from the general tax 0f1557. than was received in 1557 from the general tax of 1556. The increased re ceipts from the Western and Atlantic Railroad be ing this year $91,500 more than that of last year. The payment intv the Treasury in 1857, from the road being $108,500. It will therefore be seen that, but for the follow ing monthly incomes into the State Treasury this year, from the net earnings of the Western and At lantic Railroad, the State could not have met the ordinary expenses of government, reduced the public debt and paid the interest on the same as it became due. and met the large appropriations of the last Legislature to the Lunatic Asylum, Aca demy for the Blind. Medical Colleges, Ac. Ac., as they have been called for, without temporarily borrowing money for this purpose: As it is, all demands have been prompty met, and there is an abundant surplus—and with the taxes for 1853, now coming in, and with further anticipated re ceipts from the railroad, this surplus will continue to increase from day to day. There is still due to the Atlantic and Gulf Rail road Company the sum of $400,000; (and the State is bound for a further subscription of $500,- 000. when the private stockholders raise an addi tional $600,000;) but the Act making the State’s subscription to this work, provided also for the is sue of State six per cent, bonds, payable at the ex piration of twenty years, in the event of there not being money in the Treasury to meet, the install ments as they are called for; consequently, this subscription has been charged to the Treasury only as the bonds have been issued and sold to the company. Having thus dwelt upon and exhibited the op erations of our State Government, financially, for the past twelve months, I will now turn with greater pleasure to the future, ensuing fiscal year, as it exhibits the financial affairs of Georgia in a still more flourishing and flattering condition. With an almost nominal State tax, - it being but three fourths of a mill on the dollar, or se\ enty-fiv e i cents on the one thousand dollars, on all the prop : erty in Georgia—except bank and railroad capital —we shall raise for the ensuing fiscal year, at least $375,000. Judging from the past eight months, and if the Superintendent of the ‘V estern A Atlantic Railroad be not greatly mistaken, said road will pay into the State treasury, as net earn ings, at least $300,000 annually. Add to this the bank tax of $31,120 11; the dividends from. bank stock, $29,575 00; the tax on railroads *0,204 9-4 ; and from miscellaneous items, $5,770 88, and we will have an income of $747,675 88. V\ bile on the other hand, it is not at all probable that the ex traordinary appropriations for ISA be as large as thev were this year by sloo,ooo. ine Lunatic Asylum, Academy for the Blind, Georgia Military Institute, and Medical Colleges of Sa\ - annah and Atlanta, having been provided lor to a liberal extent, it is not supposed that much more if any, will be asked for to complete their build ings, Ac., Ac. This being the case, it will be seen that there will be a large surplus at the endol the year, to be applied to the reduction of the Public Debt, to Education, or to any other purpose the representatives of the people may think proper. Assuming then, that the ordinary receipts into the Treasury for the fiscal year 1859, will be as follows, viz: From General Tax, - - $375,000 00 Net Earnings of W. A A. Railroad, 300,000 00 Bank tax, - 51,120 11 Bank Dividends, - - - 29,575 00 Railroad Tax, - 6>204 94 Miscellaneous items - - - 5,7(5 8S Balance after paying Appropiations for 1858, - - - 20,224 22 And we have total, - ■ $767,906 10 The demand upon the Treasury for the same year will approximate as follows: To pay members of the Legislature SIOO,OOO 00 “ Civil Establishment, 1859, 70,000 00 “ Contingent Fund, 1859, 14,000 00 *• Printing Fund, 1859, 24,000 00 “ Poor School Fund, 1858, 29,575 00 “ Reduction of Public Debt, 45,000 00 “ Interest on Public Debt 170,000 00 “ Support of pauper patients Lunatic Asylum, 15,000 00 “ Salary of Supt. do. 1,800 00 •• “ other officers and servts 10,000 00 “ Support of pupils, Deaf and Dumb Asylum, 8,000 00 “ Support of pupils, Academy for the Blind, 4,500 00 “ Support of Cadets Georgia Military Institute, 2.000 00 “ Purchase of Provisions for Penitentiary 2,500 00 “ Salary for Chaplain for do. 150 00 State Library—for purchase of books, 1,000 00 “ “ for Salary of Librarian, 600 00 Military Store Keeper at Savannah, 300 00 “ “ at Milledgeville, 150 00 For extraordinary appropriations, say 50,000 00 Total $548,755 00 It will thus be seen that after meeting the or dinary demands upon the treasury, and reducing the public debt $45,000, and allowing $50,000 for miscellaneous or extraordinary appropriations, there will still be a surplus of $219,325 10 to ap ply to a further reduction of the Public Debt, to Education, or to any other purpose the next Lcg islature may dGfJJk’iSßueu, < yci vcm.; to pay the liabilities of the Central Bank, amount ing in all now to $241,000, and which are annual ly falling due in comparatively small sums, there will be no State bonds due sooner than 1562. There are, however, $289,500 of State bonds issu ed in 184S, for the benefit of the railroad, and not due until 1863 and 1868, but the State in issuing them having reserved to itself the right to redeem them and stop interest at any time after ten years, these bonds can now be redeemed at any time the State chooses to do so. There are also’s2oo,oo 7 per cent, bonds, issued in 1852, to pay for rail road iron SIOO,OOO are due in 1862, and the State also reserved to itself the right to redeem the $200,- 000 in 1862, if it desired to do so. The Public Debt. So far as I can discover from the Treasurer’s report and the various Acts of the Legislature, tho Public Debt, in bonds, now amounts to $2,- 631,500, which will be increased to $3,530,500, (unless before-educed,) when the remainder (900,- 000) of the bonds for the subscription to the At lantic and Gulf Railroad are issued. The follow ing will shoAv tho character, and the amounts of the various bonds, and when due, viz : Due in 1859, 7 per cent.

R. 100,000 $2,630,500 To be issued, payable 20 years after date, .... 900,000 $3,530,500. *Note. —With the slight glance I have been able to give the late Tax Acts,within my reach, of several Southern States, I find,that in South Carolina, upon lands in cities, towns, villages, boroughs, &c., the tax is 124 cents on the SIOO, and upon other lands it is GOcentson the SIOO, and slaves pay 70 cents per head. In Kentucky, real and'personal estate is taxed at 17 cents (on the SIOO. In Texas, cents on the SIOO. In Mississippi, 16 cents on the SIOO on land, 20 cents on money, &c., and 40 cents on each slave. In Arkansas, 164 cents on the SIOO. In Florida, 16$ cents on the SIOO. In Virginia, 40 cents on the SIOO on real and personal estate, and $1 20 on each slave. In Alabama, 20 cents on the SIOO on real estate and other property, 50 cent on the SIOO on mo ney at interest, and an average tax of 60 cents on each slave, (those between 15 and 30 years of age being $1 10 each) —While in Georgia, the tax on land, and slaves, and other property, (except Bank and Rail Road capital) is now but 7£ cents on the SIOO. It will therefore be seen, that while the per cent, tax in South Carolina andTexas is near double of that of Georgia, the per cent, of the other States named are more than double that of Georgia, and in Alabama, it is nearly three times larger, while in Virginia, upon real and personal estate, it is more than five times larger than in Georgia. In Ohio, the per cent., 31 cents on the SIOO, is four times larger, and in Illinois, the per cent, tax, 67 cents on the SIOO, is nearly nine nmes more than it is in Georgia. FOR THE TIMES. “Brining our Sheaves with Is.” “The time for toil is past, ami night has come — The last and saddest of the harvest-eves; Worn out with labor long and wearisome, Drooping and faint, the reapers hasten home, Each laden with his sheaves. Last of the laborers, thy feet I gain, Lord of the harvest! and mv spirit grieves That I am burdened not so much with grain As with a heaviness of heart and brain:— Master, behold my sheaves! Full well I know I have more taers than wheat, Brambles and flowers, dry stalks and with’d leaves, Wherefore I blush and weep as at thy feet I kneel down, and reverently repeat, Master, behold my sheaves! 1 know these blossoms, clustering heavily With evening-dew upon their folded leaves, Can claim no value nor utility,— Therefore shall fragraney and beauty be The glory of my sheaves. So do I gather strength and hope anew: For well I know thy patient love perceives Not what I did, but what I strove to do,- — And tho’ the full-ripe ears be sadly few, Thou wilt accept my sheaves!” [From the Indianapolis Sentinel, Oct,, 19.] Democratic State Ticket. We figure up, this morning, 2,354 majority for the Democratic State ticket, and the lull official returns will increase it. This vote is evidence that the majority of the people of Indiana sympathize with* Democratic'pviaciples. The election of the State ticket is a great triumph. Four Democratic Judges of the Supreme Bench secured for six years, and the administration of the State government is confided to Democratic officers for the next two years. The Legislature.—We publish this morning a complete list of the members of the next Legis lature. We classify them as follows : SENATE.

The political character of the Legislature will depend mainly upon the six Americans and Whigs who are national in their sentiments, and who have no sympathy with abolitionism. In the Sen ate the Lieutenant Governor has the casting vote.

HAVING purchased land in the West, I now offer lor sale both my plantations, lying on the North Cowikee Creek. The place on which I now reside, known as the Barna Ivey Plantation contains 2,475 acres, with a large proportion of fresh and Hammock land. Ttv re are on the plan tation 1,400 acres cleared, and in a fine state of cultivation, thoroughly drained, with a large num ber of well located ditches. The dwelling is commodious, having 6 large rooms, neatly finish ed, and is situated within the corporate limits ot Glennville, convenient to the Colleges and Churches. The out houses are in good repair and sufficient for the accommodation of 100 negroes. On this place, are two new gin houses, one of which is propelled by water power, to which is attached a grist mill, all in good order. Lying broadside this place is mv other planta tion, recently owned by Col. W. ll* Owens, con taining 901 acres. The dwelling, out-bouses, gin house and screw are all new and well finished, and equally convenient to Glennville. Being de termined to sell, 1 would not object to dividing my lands to suit purchasers. To those acquainted with these lands I need not say more—to those at a distance, I would say that they cannot be ex celled in point of health or productiveness in east Alabama. Glennville is noted for the morality, intelligence and refinement of its citizens. It is situated 12 miles Irom the Mobile and Girard Railroad, 6 miles from Jemigan, a s'eamboat landing on the Chattahooehie river, and 10 miles from Eufaula, to which point the South-Western Railroad ot Georgia will soon be completed. For further par ticulars, address me at Glennvillo, Alabama. P.S. As 1 am axious"to carry out my plans west I propose if I can find a purchaser for the above named lands, to let them go at the low price ot twelve dollars and a half per acre, cash. And if not sold before Saturday the twentieth of November next, I will have them divided into two or more tracts by asuivey, and offer them on thatday at public outcry to the highest bidder. Land buyers might do well to examine the lands before buying elsewhere. 11. BASS.
