It is with feelings of no ordinary satisfaction, we announce one of the most glorious triumphs ever achieved at the ballot box. The STATE OF NEW-YORK is re deemed, regenerated, disenthralled. The Patriotic Whig ticket is trium phant. While the administration has succeeded with its money and official power, in stifling public sen- tiV.nent in Maine, and one or two other states, reason has wrought its perfect ?ork in the Empire State. " The sober second thought of the people" is at length expressed in way that will reah the tenant of the White House at Washington. His days are numbered. Belshaz zar was a monument of composure) compared with Van Buren, at Jhe present moment. From the bottom of our heart, we pity the rascal. But, to the RESULT. The returns already received ren der it certain that SEWARD is elected Governbr, by from TEN to FIFTEEN THOUSAND majority that the Whies have carried a large a majority of the Legislature, gain of ELEVEN MEMBERS OF CONGRESS already ascer tained. The City of N. York has given a majority of 1800 votes for the Whig ticket Albany 650, Troy 500, and so on. We might fill our sheet with the details of similar glorious majorities ; but the results are sufficient. And on this noint. we presume the reader will take the following, from the Albany Argus of Friday, as conclusive : qqqqqqqq From llie Albany Argus, of Frid.iy. THE ELECTION. So far, wo have returns from only twelve counties; but Hie indications nrc sufficient how that the state has "one adversely for the Democracy . Precisely to what ex tent I hey have been overborne by i he vast appliance and unwonted exertions nnd combinations of Federalism, we cannot a-' yet judge. But we have sufficient, we think, to render it probable that the Fed eral candidates for Governor and Lieuten ant Governor nru elected, bv considerable majorities anil a federal majority in the House of Assembly. For Congress, the republicans have Inr-t. as fnr as ascertained five members, viz : Albany, Rensselaer, UUter, Dutchess and Saratoga. To these may be added, judging from tho lenor ol our last information, the city of N. York. making a gain of two members. Ul the causes ol this result so unex peeled to every dcmnciot we shall speak hereafter. Meanwhile, we give the returns. reported anil ascertained, repeating some published in a part nfour edition yesterday LATER. Since the above was in typo wo have received tho Argus of Saturday, from which wo copy tho following. T ho results continue to be adverse to the democratic tickets ; and in some in stances Irom cuiiniies where such result wore least expected. We give below the roturns in aggregate tnajorttilies, leaving details to the local canvasses, which will not materially vary ihem. Majorizes for Governor as far oa oscor lamed, Seward 9481, Mahcv 5312. Tho remaining counties, including the eigth dis trict, will swell Seward's majority to from 10,000 to 15.000. The federalists have doubtless elected live of ilu' eight senators, vizj in the 1st, 4 It. Gil). 7ih nod 0th districts, with perhaps an equal chance (or the 3rd and probably irom iiu in his miMiioors n um assembly, to trom 4U to 4ii repiiuiicans. in thu present house the republicans have 28 members, Of the meiphqrs of congress, as, far as heard, fourteen are federalists and eight re publicans. Five members arc in doubt, viz: the double, district) of Greene, Colum biu and Schoharie, and Onondaga and Madi son. and the Delaware nnd Broome district, with chances in our favor. Of tho remain ing 13, the federnlits will probably elect 0 and t he republicans 4. ASSEMBLY, wiifo. loco roco.

V B. CWhat apology will the Tories make for their defeat in New-York this year ? Last fall they were "ta ken by surprise ; but the sober sec ond thought of the people would set matters right at the next elec tion." So it has. But it proves that the people were neither de ceived nor mistaken, last year, Stand up to the rack, my lads. Both parties agreed before elec tion in New-York that the re sult of the present contest in that state would be decisive of the next presidential canvass. So every sane man considers it. The whigs have but to agree upon their candi date, and his election is as certain as any future event. PAcadieand Napierville, were burned to the ground. Wo shall have further par ticulars in.a day or two. Gen. Van Ren selaor, went north in tho Winooski, on Saturday, for the purpose of joining Nelson but he is loo lalo for this campaign. Our opinion is thai tho patriot army is disban ded for the present. As to this, however, there are lomo conflicting rcporss. For Ladies' Cloaks.

Of the eight elected this year, the Albany Daily Advertiser says, c,we think the 1st, 3d, 4th, 6th, 7tli and 8th will be Whig ; the 2d and 5th Loco Foco. Should this be the case, the parties will stand 15 Whig, to ,17 Loco foco. FROM THE FRONTIER. On Tuesday the Gih instant, a detach ment was ordered by the commandor of the Patriot forces at Napierville, lo open a communication from that place to Chom prain. Dr Cote held the command of the party and executed the duty assigned him in gallant stylo ; assisted by Col. Gagnon he look the Stone Mills at La Colle garri soned by ono hundred men. I.n the exe cution of this duty he look a number of the Odletown Militia prisoners, whom ho pa rolled on their word of honor to remain neutral. Doct. Cote distinctly informed them that if any of them violated their pa role he would hold tho whole accountable On Wednesday thesu parolled (oric being joined by o body of regulars forgot their promise and uniting with them drove Dr Cote's rear guard, killing seven and cap luring ono piece of cannon. By the fol lowing extract of a communication it will bo seen that they have met their reward: "The Napierville Patriot forces moved upon that placo this morning, fought an nour and a hall recaptured tticir cannon and email arms which they lost day before yesterday." The patriots burned every tone's house from which they were fired upon, amount ing to seven. On Friday, Sir John Colborne came up to tho Islo Aux Nuix with a largo forco ol regulars, and on Saturday moved against Napierville, But Nelson finding himsell too weak to hazard an engagement, made good his retreat, without loss, leaving Sir John lo wreak his vengeance upon the property of the suspected patriots. Tho houece, bare, &c. of every patriot, both at Lower Canada. Our dales from Mon treal are to Thursday, and from Quebec to Mondsy niyht. On Tuesday, a de tachment cf the 2 4th Regiment met with some opposition from tho rebels at Cote St. Pierre, but they Micceodcd in disper sing their opponents, and burned six hou scs. On Thursday Mr Craig of the Roy? al Regiment, who was the bearer of des patches to Henry ville, narrowly escaped a party formed to tako him prisoner, A warrant was on Monday issued for the apprehension of an individual at Point aux Trembles, a few miles from Mon treal, but the constables were unable to cxecuto it, as the Canadians were all armed. On Sunday morning the Cana dians at Longueil destroyed all tho ca nocson the beach, and cut off the rud ders of the Jiorso boat, to prevent any communication between Montreal and the south of the St. Lawrence. Sir John Colborne has sent to the Lower Provinces for additional troops An order has been issued under Martial Law, declaring that two candles must be placed in the second story of every house in the city of Montreal, between the hours of sunset and midntglit. Tho printing press and types of the Montreal Express, a little paper pub lishcd in that city for the last two or three weeks, have been seizfld by the govern ment. On Wednesday morning, intelligence reached Montreal that Mr. John M'Don nell, advocate of that city, had been cap tured neatlv orjDOsitc to Three Rivers, endeavouring to raise the habitans in that part of the country. Some loyalists took him prisorcr, and delivered him up to the regiment tf Guards stationed at Three Rivers. On his person weie found some papers addressed to him as Major Gen eral of the Patriot Army, and a tncolor- ed flag wis found in his possession. He was brought up to Montreal the same day. When he landed, handcuffed to another piisoner, and under a guard of soldiers, the crowd groaned and shouted and yelled, and while on his way to the old gaol, along the beach so far as the New Market, he was oelted with stones and mud, was spat upon on the face, and insulted in every possible way. It was with extaortlinary difficulty that the more highly excited portion of the crowd was restrained from laying violent hands on htm, and securing his punishment on the spot ; & the feeling that he would certain ly be tried summarily by martial law, and immediately thereafter hanged, alone saved him from tho infuriated populace; on reaching the barracks, his guards per ceived that he was likely to bo sacrificed to the fury of tho populace, and he was very properly taken no farther. The Herald describes him as a gentle man of a prepossessing appearance and of very gentlemanly manners. As an advo cate he had a very good practice at the Montreal Bar. The Patriots had some thirtv prisoners. Borne of them men of note, at Beauliarnois. According to the Herald they "do not suffer any inconvc "niencc leyond the detention." A correspondent of tho Herald writing from St. Ours, on tho Richilieu River, states the number of Patriots at that place to be from seven to eight hundred, and that they are in possession of about a hundred and fifty American muskets, in- dependant of tho arms owned by tho bab itans, and those, who had no muskets were armed with long spears or pikes. Tho number of arrests and commitments lo prison at Montroal amounted on Thurs' day lo 130. No mail Irom Upper Canada had been received at Montreal for six or eight days. Sentinel ooiyxracsoRB johnston.j From tho Albany Family Newspaper. William Johnston is a native of Un- per Canada. His father was an indepen dent and wealthy farmer of that province, is respectable and honest a man as ever lived the:e or any whero else. When he died ho left his son. the subiect of these remarks, a handsome properly, which Will lam Johnston, at tho commencement of the war between Great Britain and the Utiiteu States, had greatly improved : It was supposed by his worst enemies to amount to gdO.OOO his friends said it was worth $60,000. We know that we speak in moderate terms only when we say it worth from $40,000 to 00,000. Wliun our troops invaded Canada, Wil liam Johnston, and one or two hundred others, all, like himself men of property and respectability, being republicans in principle, having long wished to throw oil' the yoke of British Supremacy, and which was very unfortunate for them thinking our government in earnest on their attack upon Canada did not hesi tate to risk at once their lives and pro perty by joining our standard. Thev soon found, however, that they had nobly and gionousiy r.sKeu inetr an in tite service of a government, which, to use a boat man's phrase, looked one way and rowed anotner. ' 1 hese brave men were immediately otit-lawcd, attainted of high-treason, and their property confiscated, by the British government. A reward was offered for their heads individually. They had no alternative but to leave their propeity prey to the British governmenaiid retreat with our army into our territory. They knew that our government had de ceived them but they knew it too late Whilo tho convict lasted, however, they adhered firmly to our arms, and rendered eueciuai service, lighting, precisely as Washington, and Greene, and Hamilton fought, in our Revolution, with tho cer tainty of being hung for traitors, if taken prisoners under a total failure of the en terprise. During the conflict William Johnston, In particular, rendored very important services to our cause services, (or which he deserved a far different re muneration to say nothing of his loss of property than ho has ever received ; for the only remuneration lie is Known to have received, was that of a confidential commission in the Custorn-IIouse Depart ment at French Creek, yielding him per haps $4000 or $5000 per annum. But let us come lo the facts in relation to at least one important service render ed to the American cause by the man who, when a man of fortune, living in the style of a gentleman, was calied William Johnston ; but since lie has lost his es tate in the service of tho United States, and has enjoyed what wc call " The plea' surcs of Poverty," it has become iash ionable to call him Bill Johnston. General Brown,knowing that Sackelt's Harbor would be attacked by Sir George Prevost, unless ho could anticipate the movements of the latter, sent William Johnston, at the head of half a dozen brave men, to intercept two mails con taining Sir George Provost's despatches to his Licutenants,in relation to the medi tated attack upon Sackelt's Harbor. Captain Johnston executed his orders faithfully and bmvcly seized the mails, and brought them unopened, unsoilcd, to General Brown, He opened thcm.and thanked William Johnston for having put it into ins power, to save Sackett s liar bor : For this heroic exploit, nnd its consequences in uio saving ot mat im portant post, Johnston has still thousands of friends on that frontier, who will never look on calmly and sno him sacrificed. Such were tho eminent sorvices which William Johnston rendered the American arms in the cause of lSl'2, His history since has been known to 'he frontiers in general ; and there arc porsons in this city of known voracity and respectability, who had much inter course with him ; and they say, that in that intercourse he proved himself uni formly a gentleman in his manners, and in all his deportment. When tho late outbreak occurred, thinking probably that tho way was open to nun to redeem Ins property, which was confiscated by tho British govern ment in 1813 1814 ho accepted the commission of Commodore ol tho Patri ot Navy a very small Navy wo admit but still nearly as largo as our own when our fathers commenced tho revolutionary war playing itiosamo part that William joiinston lias oecn playing ; lor it must bo recollected, that it was os Commodore in tho Patriot Sorvico, that ho attacked the Peel, and not as a" robber," or a buccaneer," neither of which hois in the proper 8en3o ol tho terms : For it turns out that nobody was robbed on board the Peel by his means, or by his order, Ins only object boinc to destroy that vessel, by way of retaliation, nnd as a war measure, for the destruction of tho Carolinq, and tho coldblooded massacre oi ner aeienceicss crew : indeed, as to generally understood, and wc have at least one authentic nrlicle to that effect, Micro was no robbery committed. There wero but thirteen of Johnston's party. The crew o( the Peel was equal to that num ber : and there were at cast from fiftv to a hundred male passengers. The men on board wero probably six to one of Johnston's corps; but they were so frurht- encd as to lose themselves instead of their property ; when, if they had possessed tho least energy, they might have saved tho boat, by beating off, if not capturing.thcir conquerois. It was perhaps the most cowardly and disgraceful surrender ever known ; and the captain should never hereafter bo allowed to command even a fishing boat. Wo have made these remarks from n pure regard lo justice alone. There in too much of that "low-browed baseness" in the world that turns from the declining to worship tho rising sun ; too much of that mean spirit which courts a man whilst he is prosperous, and helps to kick and keep him down whilst he is in adver sity. If we do not labor under a mis take, there arc men, now among the fore most to revile William Johnston, aa a " robber" and a vagabond," who for merly were proud to partake of his hospi tality, for which he was remarkable in tho days of his good fortune. POTATOE FLOUR, Wash the potatoes and peel them in the usual manner,thcn grate them through a common grater such as is used for bread into a pan of clean soft water ; place a cullender with a common cheese cloth over it in another pan, and pour the water with the grated potatoes into the cheese cloth, and strain as much of the grated potatoes through the cloth as you can, squeezing the cloth with your hands ; that which remains in the cloth, to bo put into a pan and mashed up with a little more water, and then to be submit ted to a second straining and squeezing ; the farinaceous part of the potatoe, nearly the whole of which is now in the water, and in a state of the most minute division must be allowed to settle at the bottom ; this will lake place in about the space of an hour, when the water must bo carefully poured off; then add a second lot of pure water to the potatoe, suller it to remain an hour as before, then pour of" the water: this may be sufli cicnt, but another course of water will help tho quality of the fiour, and make it whiter; when the uater ispoured off for the last time, turn the whole of the pulp of tho potatoes on a large open dish, and put it immediately before a good clear fire ; it must then be constantly stirred and beat about till quite dry ; the pro duct will be polatoe flour, fully equal in appearance to the best foreignjarrow-root and scarcely distinguishable from it when prepared in the usual way. The result of frequent trials is, that 6 pounds of po tatoes in the raw state, will yield 1 1-1 pound of ilour or arrowroot as it is termed ; the cost of which at the present prico of potatoes, 5s. per sack, is exactly I 1-2I. for 1 1-4 11)., or but littlo more than id. per lb., being beyond all com parison the cheapest farinaceous substance that can be procured ; and it is also ca pable of being applied in a greater va riety of ways and more advantageously than almost any other article we have. It will, however, bo found peculiarly val uable in affording, at tho mnst trifling cost, n highly nutritious breakfast ; and for children and invalids an excellent sup per when mixed up with a littlo milk and sugar, whatever else may be prefer red. For breakfast, mix up a tablo spoonful, first in a very small quantity of cold water, then put it into a pint of milk and water, equal quantities of each, with a tea spoonful or two of cocoa paste ; put the whole over the fire, stirring it constantly till it thickens, and you havo in a few minutes a very palatable and excellent breakfast ; a little sugar can afterwards bo added to advantage. Tho potatoe flour can nlso bo used most aib yantageously in making various kinds of puddings, especially batter puddings, and cakes, either by itself or with common flour, rice, or even with mashed potatoes that havo been boiled in the usual manner The peculiar excellence of this mode of preparing the potntoo flour is, that ono o our most staple articles of food, which is of so perishable a quality that n great loss invariably attends keeping it through oven ono season, is thus, at once, before any decay has taken place, converted into n substance which may bo required. iV. B. The proceFS of drying tho pulp heforo the fno, should commenco imme diately tho water is poured ofi'. Tho po tatoe flour is mode to greater advantago before tho spring of the year, after which time the quality of the potntoo is not so good. Tho principal difficulty consists in properly drying the flour ; but if made in tho autumn, it can bo pretty readily done by exposuro lo tho sun, -English paper. Why arc blankets so called ? cause thev wero first made in 1340. tho robbing on board the Peel, it is novby oirc Thomas Blanket.
