CHARLESTON, November 7, 1857.
The great event of the week just closing was the
Municipal Election, which to the credit of our fair
city passed off very quietly and with less excitement
than many anticipated. A rumuor was afloat that two
of our Election bullies had given out, that in the event
of encountering each other at the p.:di+, there wold
be a regular knock-down and drag-out, by way tf
testing the physical capm.ities of ouch f..r the respoet
sible duties of their otlies. This denunstration was
interpreted in some quarters, as the prolule to some
thing rich about to happen, but the folks who were
green enough to be scared, were agreeably disap
pointed, and the knowing ones acknowledged them
selves "sold," as there was no fight to cono off while
the lovers of "sport" seeml to tid it " rather slow."

the Election--a condition of things highly favotable
to the purity of the elective franchise, and seriously
detrimental to the interests of the hatters, livury-sta
bsle men, and tavern-kcepors.
Financial matters are not quite so desperate as they
might be. There is mouch less borrowing of money
goingon now, iartly from the circumnstancc that no
one seems disposod to lend, and more especially fronm
the inability of the majority to lend, even if so dis
posed. The natuiral consequence is' a condition of
mutual independence, to which both piartics were en
tire strangers when transaetions between thecm were
more free and unrestricd. Erery man carries him.

WEDNESI)AY, NOVEMBEII 11. 1857.
In the late Report of the Treasurer of the Board
of Cotumissioners of the Poor, several typographical
errors occurred which we now correct. as follows:
The mccount of M. E-rieeOGE should have been
$62.10 instead of $72.00.
In 11. ilerloug's account the words "for slave"
should have been "for flour."
We are requested by the troasurer, Mr. A. J. Simy
ley, to state that a mistake of his own uinlunting to
$75.01 will be rectified in the next annual report.

Indian warriors and drunken sailors, will as usual
make up the bill of fare. Several novelties,.rare itnd

young men and maidens, priests and parishioners,
are referred to thle large bills for particulars. We
leave the affair to stand or fall upon its own merits.
COTTON ADVA NCING.
The great staple is going up again. Whether it
will continue to rise, is a matter of extremne uncer
tainty. In the preseut precarious condition of money
matters on both sides of the ocean, any calculations
upon the subject are little butter than guess-~work.
SO say somtie of the most sagacious merentile gentle
teen; and we believe they are right. We understand
that many of our planters are takting atdvantago of
the recent rise, an d ate selling all the cotton they have
in market. They look upon l21 cents a potttd as a
good price; and very sensibly shape their conclusions
in the premies in conformaity with the very just old
adage, "a bird in the handl is worth two in the bush."
Yet there tare some who will hold on for higher figures.
They may realize a slight gain by the operation; bt
what with costs of storage, diminution in the weight
of their bags, losJ of interest. andl the criplinig of
their creditors. they may find in the end that they
havie but "gatitned a loss."

TILE COURSE OF OOV. WALKER.
Recent accounts from Kansas Territory hold up the
course of Ronaur J. WALKEa in a light well caleu- al
lated to draw down upon him the indignation, not a
only of Democrats, but of all right thinking, conser- a
vative men in the country. The foolish gasconading,
of which this extraordinary politician has hitherto
been the perpetrator, was treated with a partial for
bearavee by many at the South, chiefly for two rea- It
sons: One of these was, the palpable stupidity of his
empty threats and high-flown pronunci amentos,
which were regarded as containing within themselves t
a sufficient antidote to any injury ho may have de- p
signed inflicting upon the Southern cause in Kansas,
if indeed such was really his design at that time.
The other ground of comparative lenity in view of
his romarkable conduct, was an indisposition to create
out of it a premature discontent with the administra
tion whose employee he was, the principles and poli- I
cy of which administration, as many Southerners be
lieved, were directly at. variance with the tone and 1i
tenor of GoV. WALtKEnS conduct. We cite no lower
names than R. M. T. HUNTn of Virginia, JEFFER- r
sox Divis of Mississippi, and Wn. L. YAxCEY of
Alabama, as representing that portion of the South- a
ern people who conceived this line of forbearance
just and proper under the circumstances which sur- f
rounded us; where the South stood in power before
the country, had but recently elected the President of
her choice, relied upon his patriotism and believed
that he would show himself true to her rights in this
very Kansas controversy with sufficient time to maui
feet the aims and intentions of his administration.
For these reasons chiefly, we repent, many of us,
while readily condemning the Kansas Governor, did
not think proper to indulge in those extreme terms
of censure (implicating the administration) which
enannted from others of our high-toned Southern
But it now appears that Mr. WALKr.I has stepped
beyond the' limits of vapid speech-making and im- I
pertinent .dvice. and, in connection with Mr. SECRE
-rAnT STAxtNo, has illegally defeated the success of f
pro-slavery candidates for office, by actually exerci- t
sing a power which was neither vested in hint by his
commissiou, by the territorial constitution of Kansas,
nor otherwise. In addition to this, as the evidence
now stands, he has been guilty of the extraordinary
lirocetitre of leading the military, stationed in Kcn
sas fur the purpose of quelling disturbances, into an
unwarrantable partie l:tiou in election matters, the
eheet of which has i.eeu adverse to the interests of
the pro-slavery party of the territory. If these state
tuent:: be ti s,--andi' from the condemnatory action
taken by pro.sluvory men upon the ground we con
elude that they are so,-then does ferboaranco to
wrds Gov. 1.atn cease to be a virtue in any point
of view. Then indeed should the President he called
upon b) the South and the Democracy to signify at
once his disapprobation of an agent, nliose actual t
treason cannot longer admit of extenuation. That t
this will be the course of the administration, we have
no doubt. Telegraphie dispatches to vurious parts of
the country have already indicated that such is its I
feeling and its intention. We trust these reports will
he speedily verified by a decisive step on the part of
the Executive of the Union. He owes it to his hon
or, to his party. to the South, and to the country.
We ditfor with the Charleston.frceuy. however, as
to the real control which WI.u.t:n has all along been
able to exert in Kansas. .Much has been said of his
using all the appliances of his posiiion. of his being
clothed with all the authority of the government, and
so on. Now what are " all these appliatces ?" what
this " authority of the Governient ?" The language j
is indefinite and unsatisfactory. WArxt.:n is no more
than situpliy the Gjovernor of lKansas territory, lie
has neither money, nor the gift of office, with which
to corrupit the people over whom he has been appoint
ed. He went amongst thea strangor, and cannot
be supposed to have suddenly acquired any such per.
sona~l popularity as would enable him to mould public
opinion to his wishes. On the contrary, he was
doubtless looked upon from the first with caution, if
not suspicion, by the independent men of Kansas;
and he has prob~ably been watched by themi through
out his entire course with all that shrewd intelligence
for which a frontier population is proverbially remar
kahle. It therefore seems to us irrational to conclude
that Roser .J. ALKEa has at any titme possessed
otte whit more of real influence in Kansss matters
than any other strong-minded iian in the territory.
In regard to the pro-slavery men especially, we know
many of them to be emigrants from the extreme
Southern States, a goodly number from South Caroli
na. We ktnow a controlling element of that party to
be the so-called Border-Ruffianism of Missouri, thtan
wich a sterner or more independent grade of South
ernism is nowhere to be found. Can we suppose that
WA.KER, even with the powver of money and patron
ge, could for a inoment control such men to the re
nunintion of a sing5e advantage, or to the yielding
of a single poitnt in the contest, which they felt them-.
selves secure of attaining ? So to suppose, is to un
derrate their intelligence andi insult their honor. It
is this conviction of W.tuns real influence in
Kansas which has puerhapls caused us to esteem his
coductt nmore lightly thtan others have dlone. We
hae leoked Ito the pro-slavery men ot the disputed
territitry as the lest juthies of their tivernor's course
andi its effect.<. We have awaited their aetionm upon

the subject of their open denuineintint ; and whether

A new opera of the inexhaustible Verdi, entitled
Aroldo,' just produced in Italy, has met with the

Grasping at rays that miockinigly siie,

Whth its rainbow tears and its sunlit shade,
And its thousands of beautics, that quickly ftade,
Oh thte spring of life ! the spring of life,
With its chatnging light, and loveliness rife !

Where the trees with their whisp'ring leaves
Attd the blue-eyed flower, the wildwood's gem,
She dIreamingly culls from its tiny stem;
Anud theidatrk blue leaves as she pulls them aptart,
Tell their mystic tale to her listtning heart:

Oh thuat low, fond voice, atnd thec clasping arm!

Her britiht face reflectittg life's joys as they shirne;

NEWYOR, Nov.3.-Advices from Lecompton,
Kansas to the 23d October, says that Goy. Wal-.
ter has issued another proclamation rejecting I
1200 votes returned from McGhee county, for J,
.he same reason that he rejected the returns
rom Oxford precinct. The proelimation states
:hat neither in this case or the otherhasthe Gov

right on his part to do so. but says the action is

form of the returns. tr

Cotton.-We are are often asked, when shall
we sell our Cotton? It is travelling out of the
way for a reporter to offer his opinion as to the
future ; but if it is worth nothing it shall cost
you nothing. Well when is the time? I say
now. Why? Because Europe wants her sup
ply now; and when she gets that the price will
g0 down, tor this reason, the United States have 't
have now on hand goods enough for a whole C
rear, and hence the first rise you will see in this s
country will be on cotton goods (for cotton is
now above the price of goods.) Again, the pan
ic in this country will require time to have its
cure; consequently manufactures cannot go on
now losing money as formerly, for the reason
that they have not got it, and capitalists will not
furnish it if they know they cannot get their r
money back witn interests. There is another .
view to look at. England needs all the gold she al
has hence she will not part with it unless she a
gets the worth of it. The panic in this country
has already had the effect of putting up interest
by the Bank of England, and cotton will feel it
first. Taking these things altogether, myhonest (
impression is, that the planter will get his best
prices between this and the 1st of February,
A STr.nnMOAr NEWsPAPER.-Among other in

AN AFECrTN IscinENT IN THE SEror MAs
sA. R.-An English otlicer was standing in his
bungalow, with only his wife with him. when he v
was assailed by a mutinous regiment ; he had a
rifle and two revolvers, each with four barrels, ,
and had nine charges in all. He beat off the
mutineers as lone as he could ; he shot their $
leader with his rile; he killed four of them with
his first revolver; he killed two more of them s
with his second; and he had two charges left.
He turned round and looked upon his wife-and $
who can estimate the power of such a look on
either side? Must she fill into the hands of
such barbarians? They did not fire, because
they wanted her, and would not risk her death
in shooting him. Ile saw it-she saw it. He
had two charges left. A short agonizing groan
he fired one into her heart and the other into his
own head, and they both fell dead before the
mutineers.-Letter from India.
TiE S-PENGTHi or MCLEs TEsTED.-Among
the interesting incidents observable at the Mary-,
land State Fair last week, was the trial of
strength of mules in the ring, the load to be
drawn consisting of a wagon weighing 2,000 lbs.
and 5,000 pounds of brick, the rear wheels of
the wagon locked with heavy chains. A team
of powerful built animals, belonging to G. W.
Worthington, were attached to the wagon, and
they drew this immense load a distance of sixty
feet. They gave evidence of extraordinary 4
strength, and were perfectly true to the work.1
A team belonging to Mr. Bond were also at.
tached to the wagon, and succeeded in drawing
the load, but not with the same facility, though
they proved themselves valuable animals.
