The defeat of Burlingame.

--‘"Our game is Burlingame,"’ is the Union cry at this time in Boston. Of the defeat of this gentleman, the Advertiser says: ‘"In the hour of general triumph the Republicans experience a piece of pretty severe discipline in the defeat of Mr. Burlingame. He loses his election, in a very heavy poll, for the want of 257 votes. His own city of Cambridge, which gave him 243 plurality two years ago, turned yesterday against him the cold shoulder of 18 plurality for Mr. Appleton. But for this he would have been elected. Thus is a prophet not without honor save in his own home."’
