A New method of giving out Offices. We learn from the Cincinnati Enquirer, that the Republican Electoral College of Ohio, which gave its twenty-three electoral votes to Lincoln and Hamlin, was besieged with a large number of candidates for the honor and profit of bearing the vote of that State to Washington as messenger. In this extremity the college resorted to a very novel political method of designating the successful aspirant. It adopted a system of gambling by placing a number of tickets in a hat after the style of drawing a lottery. The lucky number was drawn by Mr. J. Ankemny, of Holmes county, who was thereby entitled to about $250 for his patriotic services. It is said that Judge Bates will call the attention of the Grand Jury to this extraordinary proceeding.
