The Elections at the North.

The State election in New York Tuesday resulted in an overwhelming Abolition majority. --The city of New York, which last year gave Seymour 1,000 majority, now gives the Abolitionists 15,000 majority. The Republican State officers elected are: Chauncey M. Depew, Secretary of State; Lucius Robinson, Comptroller; Jno. Cochrane, Attorney General; George W. Schuyler, Treasurer; Benj. F. Bruce, Canal Commissioner; James K. Bates, Inspector of Prisons, and Henry R. Selden, Judge of the Court of Appeals.

Gov. Andrews (Rep.) has been re-elected in Massachusetts. The republicans made a clean sweep in the State, carrying the Senate almost unanimously.

In New Jersey the returns show large Democratic gains.

In Maine and Wisconsin the Republicans carried their State tickets.

Meade Preparing to advance.

The news from Washington indicates the immediate advance of Meade. All the able-bodied troops under the command of Gen. Martindale, the Military Governor of Washington, had been relieved from duty and ordered to the field, their place to be filled by the invalid corps. The 157th Pennsylvania had already left to join Meade. A telegram says: ‘"It is reported that considerable information has recently been gleaned of the enemy's strength, position, &c., which will enable Gen. Meade to take active measures."’ The cars now run to Warrenton.

Later from Charleston.

Advices from Charleston to the 31st ult. say the bombardment of Sumter is to prevent the Confederates constructing new batteries and covered ways in the channel side of the fort by demolishing the gorge wall and levelling the foundations to the water's edge. Three shells from the rifled gun between Wagner and Gregg exploded in the city of Charleston on Tuesday last. Gillmore is getting up bronze medals for his men at a jewelry store in New York. Besides a picture of Sumter in ruins, it is to bear a fac simile of the General's autograph.
