The returns.

The returns published to-day from the State are favorable to the Bell and Everett electoral ticket. In New York, on which the chief interest of the election centres, the result is doubtful. In 18 wards in the city the Union ticket has 25,000 majority; but in the counties the vote shows Republican gains. Pennsylvania has gone Republican by a large majority. The election for member of the Legislature from Prince Edward county, Va., resulted in the choice of Booker, the Bell candidate.

The following estimates of the New York papers are interesting in view of the returns published above:

The Daily News, upon an estimate of a total of one hundred thousand votes polled in the city, claims a majority of 60,000 for the Union fusion ticket. The Journal of Commerce thinks that 40,000 majority in the city will be sufficient to carry the State against Lincoln.--The Tribune gives the fusion ticket thirty thousand majority in the city, and claims that the combined majority in 1856 against Fremont will be overborne at the present contest by Republican gains in eight counties. It estimates the total vote of the State thus: --Lincoln 342,542; Fusion 302,947; majority for Lincoln 39,595. It is evident from these statements and estimates that whilst the result today, if any election is made by the people, will depend upon New York State, the focus of the contest will be New York city.
