The Result.

Lincoln is re-elected. We are assured of this fact from late reports. Thus passeth away the glory of the American Republic.

Union County Erect.

Abolition and Secession Treason Rebuked

Negroes and Negro Lovers, Skedaddle!

Overwhelming Democratic Majority!

H. WATSON WEBB ELECTED.

How are You, Smith and Munn?

TWO AGAINST ONE NOW ENOUGH

The democracy of Union county done noble work on Tuesday. Owing to the inclemency of the weather, we are assured that the democratic majority is at least 200 less than it would otherwise have been. — The abolition vote of this county is mostly made up of temporary sojourners. The old citizens of the county are nearly all democrats, and from the exceeding severity of the weather, a large number were unable to attend the election. Sickness prevented nearly all the returned heroes of the 11th regiment from participating in the contest. This we exceedingly regret. The service they have performed in this war has endeared to them the truths of democracy.

Union county has made a glorious record, and every man that voted the democratic ticket can but feel proud of the act. Union is a democratic county. Abolitionism can never pollute its purity, nor elevate one of its misguided adherents to power. Democratic and conservative men of Union county, we congratulate you upon your labors. Continue the good work. Keep your county beyond the grasp of treason and abolitionism. Stand as you have done by the constitution. Stand as you have done by the constitution and its supporters, and when you have done all, stand.
