BALTIMORE.
FRIDAY. OCTOBER 15, 1858.
On more than one occasion we have ventured
to call the attention of our merchants and cnpital
•<ts 10 the paramount importance of establishing
1 direr* trade with Europe by means of steara-
In i filers: and have pointed out the means we
io-.-i'Saed for the adequate support of a regular
line of Ocean steamers; the cheapness with which
supplies of bituminous coal could be shipped di
rect 1 v from our wharves, and the opportunity that
presented itself for touching at Norfolk, going and
returning. We are perfectly satisfied, that Balti
more alone could sustain a line of steam-propellers,
without regard to aid from any extraneous source;
but knowing that Norfolk is flic central point,
towards which several .Southern and South
western Railways are converging, and that the
p.i-scngcrs and products reaching that city, on
the way to ft foreign port, would, also, afford to
a line of steamers, from this city, additional se
curitv against the possibility of failure, it became
essential that we should notice the fact in con
nection with the enterprise we advocated. We
were conscious, moreover, that the citizens of
Virginia have, for quite a number of years, been
desirous of establishing a direct trade with Europe
from the Chesapeake Bay; but that their efforts,
cither to establish a line themselves, or to induce
foreign capitalists to do so, have proved abortive,
and it was therefore reasonable to suppose, that
they would gladly co-operate with Baltimore in
the purchase of a sufficient number of steamers
for ocean service, or, if not in the purchase, that
tluy would, at least, assist in furnishing a portion
of the freight and passengers. A letter,
written by Governor WISE, and recently pub
lished in the Norfolk Argus, affords us an
opportunity of recurring to the subject. In the
letter to which we have referred, Governor WISE,
addressing himself to the Virginians, and looking
simply to the means of Virginia, acknowledges
that while a direct trade wilh Europe is all im_
portnnt, it requires, to make it successful, a large
capital, mammoth steamers, and a peculiar mercan.
tile education. He thinks, too, that the Virginians
are premature in attempting to establish lines of
ocean steamers, before they have completed their
works of internal improvement, and piled the
pabulum of commerce on the quays of the Chesa
peake. But while he considers it would be diffi
cult to build up, at this time, a direct trade with
England, or the continent of Europe, he claims
that there is another trade, naturally and legiti
mately belonging to Virginia, which only waits
for a master merchant to develop it. "I mean,"
he says, "the trade with South America, the West
"Indies, Brazil, Buenos Ayres and Paraguay."
With reference to the advantages that might accrue
to his State from the opening up of direct Steam
Communication to Brazil, he poiqts to the fact
that, at present, there are no mails to that country
from the UNITED STATES. He says :
"England lias mails. Belgium has mails, France has
mails, and Brazil has mails carried by steamers from Rio
to Europe, but the United States have none. Coffee may
he falling and flour rising, and the European and United
States merchant may start even in the race to get intelli
gence home. The letter to Trieste will go direct by steam,
and the flour it sends for, he half way hack, whilst the
letter for Richmond has to go to Southampton, in England;
getting there, it finds England has no steam mail more
direct to Halifax or St. Thomas, and to Halifax our letters
have to go to get to Richmond, and by the time they get
here the prize is won by the Trieste trader in Rio.
Such indeed is the truth, and the disadvantages
to which those of our merchants who are engaged
in trading with Brazil are subjected in consequence
of the delays arising from the reception of their
letters by so indirect a route, could scarcely have
been more forcibly slated. Governor WISE docs
not; however, desire to urge a mail line; but to
present data for the estimate of profits on a com
mercial line from Norfolk to Rio. These are his
points :
Ist. 11 o—the United States—have no steam lines in
connection with South America; though tliey would, as
they have fur Europe, vastly increase our commerce with
the South.
2d. We having no steam line with South America, and
F.uropean Powers having several,our commerce is serious
ly injured thereby. Europe's commerce and intercourse
IS enlarged at our expense.
3d. I would start a line at Norfolk, touch at St. Thomas,
the great distributing point or the English and other
A\ est India mails; thence to Marhadoes; thence to Pernam
>ucn. Bahia and RioMe Janeiro. A smaller steamer here
would connect with Montevideo and Buenos Ayres
_4th. The distance would he from:
Norfolk to Cape Ilenrv, East, 25 miles
Cape Henry to St. Thomas. S. 28= E . 1,261 miles
St. Thomas to Barliadoes, S. 44" E.. 440 miles.
Barbadoes to I'ernamhiico, S. 4ft = E., 1.950 miles
Pernamhiieo to Bahia, S. 36= W , 365 miles
Bahia to Cap- Frio, S. 18= IV.. 630 miles
Cope Frio to Bin de Janeiro, West, 75 miles.
Total distance, 4,756 miles, in 24 days at 200 miles per
day.
By actual experience the European steamers make, in
cluding stoppage* and all delay, about two hundred miles
per day. Thus th • distance to Rio from Norfolk would
take at least 24 days, and 50 days only would he required
for a round trip to that port, and but little more to get re
turns from Buenos Ayres.
sth. Two large propellers, say of 1200 tons each, would
be sufficient for the beginning of the trade, and four would
soon he required.
6th. The exports of the United States to those countries
have been much less than the imports. This is mainly
the result of the greater facilities afforded trade with Eu
rope by steamers. Our articles cannot compete with those
of flu 1 English in the market of Brazil, from the dispatch
and freshness in which the latter can be sent out by
steamers.
Referring to the statistics of the Brazilian trade,
as published in Haul's Merchant 1 s Magazine, he
shows, that while the imports from the UNITED
STATES have fallen off fourteen per cent, in twelve
years, those from England—consisting chiefly of
cotton goods—had increased seventy per cent.,
"although the consumption of Brazilian produce
' in (rre:U Britain is not more than half in amount
"of that consumed in the UNITED STATES." lie
contends then, that the great question is—
"lN'there enterprise and capital enough in Richmond
and .Norfolk to establish four, if not four, two, or if not
two - we commercial steamer of 1000 or 1500 tons between
Norfolk am! Ki.. ? it will require from a quarter of a mil
lion to on" million only of capital; it requires agents sent
out immediately t> Brazil and depots of coal to be estab
.on route; and when established, it will lie the
speediest policy to draw to us a European foreign trade."
To which the New* York Post very pertinently
replies:
* < t if capital fr building the new steamers were to be
ioutid, and there were enterprise enough in Virginia to
build them, it strikes us that the projectors of the under

respect to the project In question,or more conclusive
with regard to the true policy of Virginia. In an en

line of steamers from Norfolk to Rio, will apply

In the opinion expressed by him, that a trade
with South America should, of necessity, precede
direct trade with Europe, we certainly do not
coincide. Of the two lines, that to Kurope-to
our merchants at least—otters th..
z•. , . e induce
ments, and if the interests of Maryland and Vir
ginia were united in prosecuting i„ common so
desirable an enterprise, it would not only prove
lucrative in itself, but of especial benefit to the
commeiMul interests of both parties.
We referred yesterday to the fact that a Munici
pal Election was to have been held in this City on
hut was Prevented by the fraud and
Aiolenec which then prevailed, and which turned
( w 10 e affair into the merest mockery of the
fZ tlnd a I>ositive UW upon our
free institutions. Our allusion to the subject was
rief and temperate, us we intended that it should
be. Such scenes and incidents as those of Wed
nesday aie unfortunately no new thing in Balti
more, and their occurrence, therefore, neither sur
prised nor shocked us. We said but little about
them, because, in our judgment, there was but
little to be said, and that little even, we would
rather have deferred saying, until after the public
had first been placed in possession of the facts and
had thereby been enabled to test the accuracy and
justice of our conclusions. To our home readers,
perhaps, any extended commentary upon those
facts may seem quite superfluous. For the most
part they are their own comment, and need no
other. Everybody knows, for example, that there
must have been illegal voting, and a great deal of
it, to have enabled the Bth Ward to give
3,307 majority for Col. SHUTT, and the 4th
Ward to give 2,507 for Mr. SWANN. The
mere formal record of votes sufficiently
explains the character of the Election.—
Out of the entire polLof 28,866 votes, Col. SHUTT
is reported to have received but 4,859, and of these
—3,428 are represented to have been cast in a single
Ward, leaving 1,430 as the whole number of the
ballots which were deposited in his favor through
out the rest of the city. To our citizens these
facts and figures are <[uite intelligible enough by
themselves. They only tell all too plainly the
story ot our shame and humiliation. 80, too
with the details and particulars of the various
outrages that were committed by the ruffians
who held undisturbed possession of the polls.
They are in everybody's mouth—and have been
repeated and discussed by every fireside, and in
every counting-room, shop, and tavern in the
city. They have been retailed from house to
house, and from man to man, until there is
scarcely an individual in this community who
has not heard, or does not know of some neigh
bor, friend or acquaintance who, on Wednesday
last, was driven and beaten from the polls, or was
threatened, insulted, and intimidated, in the vain
attempt to exercise the "inestimable" right of
suffrage. What opinion our readers at a distance
may form of these things, we cannot tell.—
That in any event, it must be unfavorable to our
city it is but safe to presume. Possibly—in ignor
ance of the facts, and of the means by which it
was obtained,—they may imagine Mr. SWANN'S
majority to have been an "endorsement," and a
vindication" of his administration, as we have
been told, he himself asserted it to be, in the
speech which he delivered last night to the drunk
en rowdies who surrounded his house, and with
whom he exchanged felicitations upon the suc
cess which had attended their mutual efforts in
a common cause. This impression, in justice to
ourselves, we must endeavor to remove. The fact
that Mr. SWANS has been re-elected to the MAYOR
ALTY by violence and fraud is less discreditable to
our city, than the supposition that he has been
retained in office by the voluntary suffrages of its
people. The truth is, that there was no Election
on Wednesday, nor even the form or pretense
of one. From the opening of the polls in the
morning until their closing in the evening, in
nineteen wards of the city, they were occu
pied and held by bands of armed bullies who,
with comparatively few exceptions, as the returns
will show, permitted nobody to vote who did not
openly show and as openly vote the "American"
ticket. That ticket, moreover, was so marked
upon the back with a blue chequered or diamond
shaped pattern, resembling that upon the back of
an ordinary playing-card, that, however folded, it
could be recognized without difficulty in the hand
of the voter. Ily this means, the secrecy of the
ballot was effectually destroyed, and the ruffians
who guarded every avenue to the polls were
enabled to tell at a glance whose votes might
be admitted, and whose were to beexcluded. Not
content, however, with excluding legal voters
opposed to the election of Mr. SWAXN, an immense
quantity,—probably not less than from two thirds
to three fourths of the whole number polled of
purely illegal votes, were cast in his favor—not
only men but boys, frequently voting—not twice
or thrice, but ten or twelve times, —not only
in different wards but in the same ward—not
at different hours of the day merely, but half a do
zen times in succession, with scarcely an attempt
at concealment or disguise. Other votes were poll
ed which were purely fictitious—tickets being
handed to the judges, and received by them which
were falsely represented to have been tendered by
persons in omnibnsses and carriages, who were
unable to get out and walk to the window. In
short, every trick and stratagem which fraud
could invent, and every extremity to which
violence could resort, were successfully em
ployed for the purpose of electing Mr.
SWANS. These outrages upon the ballot
box and upon the persons of voters, the judges
were unable and the police were unwilling to
prevent. The former did not so much as dare
to question an illegal vole, even when, as was fre
quently the case, they knew it to lie such. The
latter habitually refused to interfere for the protec
tion of anybody. If appealed to for the purpose,
their almost universal reply was—that "they had
"no authority to interfere,"—that "they could ar
"rest nobody without a warrant," or that "if peo
"ple wanted to vote the independent ticket the in
dependent candidates mightprotect them." We,
of course, do not mean to say that these outrages
were perpetrated to the same extent in all the
wards in the city, or that every policeman was
equally remiss in his duty. Some there were,
doubtless, who endeavored to do what was right,
and' Others there might have been, who only re
quired a little encouragement and the support of |
their comrades to follow the example. We mere- j
ly mean to assert that the general characteristics of
the election throughout the city were such as we |
have described, and that these were the means by [
which Mr. SWAXN has obtained a re-election.

Troupe from coming on here from New York, and
that La Sonnambula will not be performed to-night.

For. LIBERIA.— About twenty heads of families
and others in Cambridge anil that neighborhood, of
African "extraction," feeling the disadvantages
under which they labor here, have determined to
emigrate to Liberia. The whole party will number
a hundred. On Tuesday evening they held a meet
ing in Cambridge, over which ex-Gov. Washburn
presided, for the purpose of awakening interest in
the movement. The principal speaker was Judge
Jaines of Liberia, a native of Monrovia, some 40
years old, and quite intelligent. He gave a detailed
and interesting account of that country- -its natural
advantages, resources, population, history, Ac.—
There were in the limits of Liberia about 12.000
Americans (including children of American parent
age,) and the speaker thought 200,000 natives.—
There was excellent timber and stone, and a fertile
soil. On three acres of land 1,300 gallons of molas
ses had been produced in a year—worth 55 cents
per gallon there. The country was apapted to the
raising of cotton and sugar cane.— Neicbiiryport

RESUMED. —The nail factory of Mr. Pratt, near
Fairview, Cumberland county, Pennsylvania,
went into operation on Monday, the 13tli ult. it
gives employment to over one hundred hands.—
For two or three years the factory has been lvin"
idle. " •
The rolling mill of Messrs. Bertolet & Co., Read
ing, Pa., which has been lying idle for a month or
two past, re-commenced work this week, under a
new firm, consisting of Messrs. Bertolet, Henry
Cunard, Sr., and Samuel Bertolet. This mill has
been in operation about thirteen years. It begins
business with a sufficient number of orders ahead
to warrant the belief that it may be kept constantly
employed hereafter.
MORTALITY INTIIE ENGLISH ARMY. —An investiga
tion by Mr. Xeison, a distinguished actuary, has re
vealed the fact that in susceptibility to disease of
the respiratory organs, the British soldier, hither
to considered a model of health and vigor, "is more
fragile than a boarding school girl." The investiga
tion shows that consumption prevails in the army
to an extent made known bv no other series of ob
servations within the whole range of vital statistics.
Diseases of the respiratory organs cause sixty per
cent, of the entire mortality. The cavalry regi
ments sutler less than the infantry, and the infantry
of the liue less than the foot guards. Improper
dress, over-crowded barracks, and want of proper
exercise are named as probable causes.
During the month of September last past, forty"
five sailing vessels and eight steamers arrived at
New York, bringing passengers from foreign ports.
The whole number of passengers was—aliens, 7.135;
citizens, 675. In September, 1857, the arrivals
were —aliens, 1!i,326; citizens, 861. During the pre
sent month, to the 12th inclusive, eleven vessels
have arrived, bringing 133 cabin, and 2,622 steerage
passengers. The total number of arrivals, thus-far,
this year, is less than half the number during the
corresponding period of 1857.
The total receipts of the recent State Fair at In
dianapolis were $12,500, viz;— First day, $500; se
cond, $300; third, $3,000; fourth, $5,500; fifth
$3,000.
Among the exports from New York for the past
week is a sectional dock for Peru, valued at SSO,OOO.
It is to be located at Callao.
The receipts of the New York State Fair, just
closed, were only about ten thousand dollars.

ft-pTO THE CITIZENS OF BALTl
more.—My sudden withdrawal at noon yesterday
from the position, as a candidate for the Mayoralty, whi< a ii I
had at the request of large numbers of law-abiding citiz'!i?,
somewliat involuntarily and toe impossibility,
in my brief card, of explaining to you the reasons which
induced me very reluctantly 10 the adoption of my course,
renders it proper I should submit to you tlus letter.
My political predilections, as is generally known,
had attached me, with some devotion, to the Whig party.
Since the Ametican party came into existence, my posi
tion, politically, has been an isolated one, mixing actively
with neither of the political organizations of
the day. Like hundreds of others, formerly in
the Whig ranks, who could not anticipate in
the success of the American party that intolerant proscrip
tion of large classes of our citizens, and that abominable
affiliation with notoriously lawless characters which has
brought disgrace upon our city and seriously paralyzed
its groat interests, while making it a place of terror to
peace-loving people, i felt that sense of responsibility
which called for shell immediate action as would now
remedy what had become a eur.-e by sufferance, and did
not regard myself at liberty to decline any position which
circumstances indicated to me as proper to assume. The
Democratic party foreseeing that for a state of things so
desperate, other than partizan efforts should be resorted to,
and through their constituted party organ having left the
field open to the citizens, conservative and patriotic men,
coming together from the ranks of both political organiza
tions, called upon me to accept the candidacy upon indepen
dent grounds, and shrinking from no responsibility in
which I could serve the people, I still reluctanly entered
upon the contest. Until I was possessed of the unquestiona
ble evidences,through friends from every section of the city,
and my own personal observations on yesterday, I could
not and would not believe that a predetermined attempt
on the part of reckless clubs of men and police to so take
possession of the avenues to the polls and surround them
with impassible obstructions, could he met by the Mayor of
the city with that indifference which was equivalent to ap
proval, instead of prompt and manly interference. Re
garding Mayor Swann in that favorable light which we
are bound to assign to all men untried in this contest, in
volving his own election, 1 looked for a disinterested and
fair policy. I could not hold him as willing to accept an
election to an humble cilice like that of Mayor, upon
such terms as would make it a disgrace instead ot an
honor. I relied upon that efficiency to secure a fair elec
tion, or none, (from his Iningjiimsclf a candidate), which
all would naturally effect as the dictate of a sensitive
honor, and did not believe that such measures would be
taken as to compel the ballot-boxes to report an unfair and
dishonest election.
Under those impressions profoundly entertained, on the
morning of tiie Election I visited the polls in my own
ward, and there myself saw very clearly that no fair vote
could be had, hut, that while honest legal voters were by
force and intimidation kept hack from the polls, fraudu -
lent votes were freely offered and received. Reports from
other wards were continually coming to me from
undoubted sources, that the polls were in the
hands of armed and reckless men, and that the
many who were being driven from the places of
election were only the unwelcome messengers to warn
others, not prepared to risk their lives, from approaching
the polls. Added to these rumors came to me the more
painful ones that old and respectable citizens, some of
them old Defenders of our city, and one who had been its
Chief Magistrate, with others 110 less distinguished, were
insultingly maltreated and abused, and driven before
these hireling mobs, unprotected by the Police. To my
own >ad observations of wrong came these exciting evi
dences of crime, with the earnest importunities of
good citizens, for my withdrawal at once, to
relieve my friends from being objects of
political vengeance, by their efforts to vote. To these ap
peals I could not turn a deaf ear. By mid-day I saw
plainly that the previous farces in the 'shape of elections
were no parallels to what was intended for to-day. I saw
to my regret that any serious and determined efforts to
vote, 011 the part of those opposed to Mayor Swanti, would
he attended with general disfranchisement and fear
ful loss of life, and that the day inust end in a eon
test with arms and bludgeons, or quiet submission.—
Whatever indifference I felt to the consequences per
sonally I could not assume, despite the judgments .f
my friends, to continue in a position which would subject
them to sanguinary dangers in their attempts to vote for
m<\ The representative of 110 distinct organization of a
political character, and relying entirely upon the support
of the conservative masses of our citizens, (who I believe
to day constitute a large majority of the voters,) of all
parties. I could not shut my eyes to the fact that, against
the "well disciplined forces opposed to us, led on bv their
reckless mercenaries and backed by the Mayor and Police,
an unorganized party, no matter how greatly in the ma
jority, could not possibly succeed unless by an op u
physical contest with those forces, which must end in
fearful consequences. 1 saw that, though these out
rages would, ere the closing of the day. inspire some of the
more detemined of our citizens to a courageous main
tenance of their rights, still against the strong and
reckless powers arrayed before them, with the civil author
ities in their support and the ballot-boxes in their keeping,
any serious attempt to maintain their rights could only
end in defeat and disasters. And in all these opinions*l
was sustained b\ th<- great public sentiment of the city.
With no petty ambition to serve nor prejudices t > gratifv,
I could then find 110 difficulty in responding affirmatively
to the general wish of my nearest friends, and I promptly
proceeded to announce publicly my withdrawal from the
content.
The day has now passed, and the results are such as
have been gloomily foreshadowed. Mv connection with
the subject has ceased, and with this letter of ex
planation to you, fellow-citizens, closes my re
lations to the public. Except as on >of von, I
have no further interest in the fate of our city'and' its
government, you are launched again for another term
under the dominant sway of clubs and their
leaders. J hat the great human heart of Baltimore
throbs in painful anxiety at the condition of tilings sur
rounding us,cannot be questioned What vnur remedy is
to he time must determine. If it be as is gravely asserted
by the friends of Mayor Swann, that he and his Police are
powerless against the physical elements which control the
city through the clubs, then indeed have you fallen upon
dangerous times and the only relief left you is that fearful
resort which supplants civil power when civil
power fails to protect society in its rights, and
if that were true the friends of the Mayor and the Press
that supports him, should have coveted his retirement,
and the transfer of the municipal government to hands
less embarrassed and more able to rescue the city from
such a thraldom. But such is not the fact. Fellow-Citi
zens! Mayor Swann and his Police have been, and are
now, equal to the task of doing their duty successfully.
My experience, in connection with the police power of
Baltimore, enables me to assert this. The clubs, composed
of desperate men though they may be, are not respon
sible, for they are hut the corrupted and demoralized
means used to accomplish certain ends; the Police
are not responsible, for they are subject to the
influences of place and patronage; the Chief of
Police is not responsible, for he too is a suliordinate
controlled by superi r authority, but it is the Head
of all the Police, the Mayor himself, who is silono respon
sible for the fearful record of crimes and villanies and sis
sassinations which are perpetrated ly the hired minions
lie will not offend. His own oath and voluntary pledges
to protect citizens in the enjoyment of their constitutional
rights, as well as their lives, are willfully broken to an
outraged community. Evidences are not wanting to
the truth of what 1 say. Public gatherings of the largest
kind, "of classes, too, whom he affects to despise, may
meet and separate in undisturbed peace if it pleases the
caprice, or suits the iutere -ts of Mayor Swann, and just as
easily could he protect all citizens in their civil rights if
he desired to do so. It could be thus always with such
a police force as this city is now provided with. 1 main
tain that the responsibility rests alone with Mavor Swann
to answer for wilful disregard of official obligations, the
primary cause of the disfranchisement of citizens, and the
crimes and disgrace under which our city suffers. Re
leased as lam now from the silence that candidacy im
posed upon me. as a citizen interested in the fair fame of
our Metropolis, I speak thus plainly and truthfully, in ex
planation of my acts and my views.

LILLIE TRIUMPHANT—A GREAT TEST.—The fire at
I the Crystal Palace, New York, furnished a test of s tf.s
than which none more thorough could have been desired.
Those who were on the ground say that it was the hottest
i burning they ever saw. The wares of the Safe Manufac
i turers were in an exposed situation. Lewis Lillie, of Troy,
! Stearns k Marvin, of New York, and others were among
1 Die exhibitors. < >ll overhauling the ruins Stearns ft Mar
• vin s Safes were found burnt out; and others weie coin
j plete wrecks. LILI.IF'ss ALONE WERE UNINJURED, except
in the "frying" of the paint u|M>n the inside doors. The
Institute could not have arranged a better trial, had a
; special arrangement been made for the purpose, nor could
I Mr. Lillie possibly have secured a greater triumph for his
remarkable invention. Troy Safe s now take the l ad.—

' < RTSTAL PALACE CONFLAGRATION.—Among the greatest
j sufferers by the destruction of this edifice are Messrs. I
Stearns & Marvin, Sheet Iron Sale Manufacturers; also,
i one or two others. About $5,000 worth of these Safes j
were destroyed. LILLIK'S Chilled Iron Burglar Proof
