    John C. Breckinridge.

    The intelligence from Kentucky, the home of JOHN C. BRECKINRIDGE, is of the most gratifying character. DOUGLAS has not carried that State; but BRECKINRIDGE has not. BELL and EVERETT have, at least, it is reported, twenty five thousand majority. – This is the end of one traitor. It is true that Mr. BRECKINRIDGE has a seat in the Senate, which, if he lives, he will occupy for the next six years. But he will sit out his term without credit or influence. He will never be heard of again as a Presidential candidate. He is already broken in his fortune. – he is a pauper supported by his friends; – and in six years, if not before, he will retire unhappy and disgraced. Such is the reward of his weak treachery to the Democratic party.
