the Washington liberty pole. This beautiful structure, now in a state of com pletion in front of the City Ual), is decidedly the first in beauty of proportion, gymetry, and ivde pendence, that has ever been erected in the Me tropolis. It will be perfectly free from extrane ous support, and standing as it does upon an em inence, will display to all parts of the District the stars and stripes of the Union, and the names of the Whig candidates, Clay and Frelinghusen. The pole was raised without accident, and in a very skilful and seamanlike manner, under the superintendence of Capt. Peabody, and with the assistance of Mr. Francis Betty, rigger, and Messrs. Allen and Douglass, carpenters. The pole is in four parts. It is adorned by a cap of liberty, made by Mr. Schussler, arid handsomely gilded by Mr. John Purdy. To Joseph II. Brad ley, Esq , the President of the Clay Club, and other gentlemen of the neighborhood, the Whigs are much indebted for the erection of this pole, which is to be. permanently fixed and given to the city as a flag-staff, to be used on public occa sions. Criminal Court.?This Court, having dis posed of several [petty cases of assault and battery during the week, discharged the petit jury till Monday, the 11th of November. The Court, we learn, will on to-morrow adjourn over till that day, in order to hold a term next week in Alexandria. The Telegraph?Election Returns.?It will be seen by the cards of Professor Morse and W. Lenox, Esq., which we republish to-day for pub lie information, that election returns will no longer be announced from the Telegraph oflice ; but will be given to the Whigs of the city, imme diately upon their receipt, at the Club House. We see by the Globe of last night that the re turns will also be announced at the Hickory pole in front of the Globe office. MORSE'S MAGNETIC TELEGRAPH. To relieve the oflice from the great crovyds awaiting the election news during the ensuing season of political excitement, notice is hereby given that no election returns, received by the Telegraph, will be hereafter announced from the Telegraph Office, at the City Post Office. The correct returns, as transmitted by the Telegraph, will be given by the Superintendent, without any delay, to any such gentlemen as may be deputed to receive them by the respective political par ties, who will make suitable arrangements to an nounce them to the public, from their respective headquarters. The Telegraph will close at 12 o'clock, P. M., Saturday night, and remain closed till Monday morning. ? SAML. P. B. MORSE, Superintendent of Elec. Mag. Telegraph.
