Each State is entitled to a number of Electors equal to its representation in both Houses of Congress. The Electoral College, under the election of 7th Novem ber next, will be constituted as follows: Maine, . 9 | Tennessee, 13 New Hampshire, 6 Ohio, 23 Massachusetts, 12 ; Louisiana, 6 Rhode Island, 4 Mississippi, C Connecticut, 6 Indiana, 12 Vermont, 6 Illinois, 9 Maryland, .8 Alabama,. 9 Virginia, 17 Missouri, 7 North Carolina, 11 j Arkansas, 3 New Vork, 30 ; Michiguu, 5 New Jersey, 7 : Florida, 3 Pennsylvania,...... 26 Texas 4 Delaware, 3 lowa, 4 South Carolina, 9 , Wisconsin, 4 Georgia It) Kentucky, 12 I 290 Necessary for a choice, 146. The four last mentioned States have been added since the election of 1844. By an act of Congress the Presidential election takes place on Tuesday, the 7th day* of November, throughout the Union. All the States vote directly for Electors, except South Carolina, which elects by the Legislature. An extra session of that body will be convened to meet the requisition of the law. In case there is no choice of President by the Elec toral College, the election devolves upon the House of Representatives; but in that case the votes are given by States, —the single member from Delaware, Florida, or Arkansas, having the same power as the thirty-four members froin New York. The politics of the State Delegations in Congress, stand at pre sent as follows: — Whig. Democratic. Tied. Vermont, Maine, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Virginia, Rhode Island, Connecticut, S. Carolina, Georgia—3. New York, Alabama, New Jersey, Mississippi, Pennsylvania, Louisiana, Delaware, Texas, Maryland, Arkansas, N. Carolina, Tennessee, Florida, Indiana, Ohio, Illinois, Kentucky—l 2. Michigan, Missouri, lowa, Wisconsin—ls. Should there be no election by the House, the Constitution provides that the "Vice President shall act as President." The election of Vice President, in case the Elec toral College fails to effect a choice, devolves upon the Senate. That body as now constituted, is strongly democratic. FOREIGN MARKETS. Per Uibernia.

By pri vate, a few selected dairies were disposed of at 60s. and upwards, and the market is again bare. Corn.^-c.—At Tuesday's market, the turn was in favor of the buyer, on all articles, with 325. for Western Canal Flour, and 355. 6d. for Indian Corn, at extreme rates; subsequently, a prevalence of east erly winds having ltd hi very light imports, the dc- i cline noted lias been fully recovered. At our mar ket to-day* a fair ordinary amount of business was ( transacted, at full' prices, and the only alteration on our quotations of this day week, is an advance of Is. ! on Indian Corn, which has been in active demand, j Cotton. —The import of the week is 4,323 bales; I the sales 24,860, with a moderate demand, at our re duced quotations. Importers of American Cotton continue to press their stocks upon the market, and i the authorised quotations for "Fair" are again redu- I ced gd. per lb. In the manufacturing districts, busi- | ness is without any animation. The sales to-day arc i 4,000 bales. Present stock, 53-1,400 bales against 420,750, at corresponding date last year.

Cotton —Wc have to report a dull and depressed 1 Cotton market with a decline in prices of £d. to Jd. per lb. The continued troubles on the Continent, : combined with the favorable prospects of the Cotton | crop in the United States, appear to have destroyed j ; all confidence, and a general disposition has been manifested by holders to meet purchasers almost on their own terms. The demand is still nearly exclu- j ! sively confined to the middling qualities worth 3Jd.a ' 3.id.,"the inferior descriptions of North Alabama and Tennessee Cotton being unsaleable even at 2*d. per j lb. The quotations are fair Orleans, 4*d.; middling, 3',d.; fair Mobile and Upland, 3d.; middling, 3£u. J per lb , at the same time the price of fair is consul- I crcd by many as per lb. too high. The sales for ; I the week are 24,860 bales, of which exporters have taken 4940 bales. The American descriptions sold are 5760 Upland at 3£d a4j.d.; 10,200 Orleans at 2id. as£il.; 3760 Alabama and Mobile at and , 14u Sea Islands at 7£al4d. per lb. The stock of Cot i ton in this port is 538,000 bales; of American 376,000 1 bales, against a total stock of 420.000 and of Ameri- ; can 311,000 bales, as compared with the same period ; of last year. Flour, Grain, —ln consequence of the more 1 favorable accounts of the Potato crop, and the late 1 heavy arrivals of Grain from the United States, our j Com market has been quiet at the quotations of our i last circular. Sweet free American Flour, 315.a325.; i sour, 28s. per brl. Wheat, 7s. bd.aSs. Sd. per 70 lbs. Indian Corn, 345.355. 6d. per quarter. Indian Meal, 175.a175. 6d. per brl. The duty is 4s. per qr.

Dublin Corn Market, Oct. 20.-—We had a large ami a dull market at our Corn Exchange to-day. Wheat and smutty Parley supported late rates. In dian Corn does not meet a ready sale, but prices re main at 345. and 375. per quarter. Manchester Corn Market, Oct. 21. We have to day a very dull market, the trade taking only small parcels. Glasgow. —We have had a very heavy business i to-day in our Commercial Markets. Yarns, Cotton, 1 and every description of goods and produce have ! been but little in demand, and that .at prices ir. favor of purchasers. In the Iron trade there is also but little business doing to-day. The prices for Pig arc generally without any change. A very large and increasing export business is doing at this port for the West Indies. Havre, Oct. 18.—Business here is very dull and spiritless. The sales of Cotton during the week have been 3,900 bales, so far as American descrip tions are concerned. Although the trade show a great want of confidence in ihe market, and the sales are only very limited, we can hardly quote prices as lower. Middling grades have been held at 59a | OOf. and fair descriptions 63a(4f. There has been j no American arrivals this week. Rice —This article is neglected; the quotations are 23f a3lf. Stock 600 tierces and 1,400 bags. A very considerable export of Potatoes has been going ou from this port to Eng land for some weeks past, the crop in this district being abundant and of excellent quality. The au thorities, however, becoming jealous have, by an order in Council, prohibited any farther export and will not even permit an English ship in the harbor to complete her cargo. It j<. said that a similar pro- . hibition will be made as regards Wheat. At Berlin , the Funds and Public Securities gene- ; rally had suffered depression from the riots which have lately taken place in that city. Late papers from Belgium which have come to hand, contain a review of the trade of that country during the past year. It is gratifying to find that. while almost all others on the Continent have seri ously retrograded, Belgian commerce has increased : lo to 27 per cent, in 1047, compared with 1-846 and the avcrag •of the previous five years. Great im provement is manifest in thecxporl branches of busi- Our accounts respecting the Vintage in France are satisfactory. They state that the crop is most abun- j dant, and the price of f Fines will rule low. L ipsic letters mention that the late wholesale , transactions at the fair had been limited. German goods sold readily, but English and French goods exceedingly dull, and the retail trade which had been previously active had been latterly rather lan guid. Accounts frorn St. Petersburg inform us that it is expected that Scchenoffs 14,000 casks Tallow will not come forward this season, or at least only a small portion.

Remarks —The river changed but little until Satur- | day, when it commenced rising very perceptibly and has since swollen about 2 feet—rose but slightly yes terday, indicating that the force of the present swell . is spent. The rise lias and will carry oft' a large j number of tlatboats, laden with Produce, and also j bring out a better class of steamers. In the Missis- i sippi there are 6 feet water in the channel below i St. Louis. In the Cumberland at last dates there was a moderate rise. Freights have been consider- j ably lessened HI prices since last date; to Pittsburgh, ; 2Ua25 cts. per 109 lbs.; Flour per brl. 40 cts.; Wbis- j key 70 cts. There is a large amount of Produce to go forward as soon as prices are reasonable. The ( receipts of Produce by the Railroad and Miami Canal arc increasing, but both carry less merchandise. The White Water is still bringing in Produce to consid erable extent. State of Trade —'The causes heieto- j fore noticed as holding trade ill check have contin ued. but there is some room now to hope for an im- 1 provement The only movement yet noticeable in ; the market, resulting from a better stage of water, ; i-. a demand for Bacon and Whiskey for Pittsburgh. ' The past week is mainly notable as having been the commencement of the Pork packing season of 1848-9. ; Money Mutters —The market is somewhat less strin- ' ge. t, but is nevertheless tight enough. Exchange i on the East is steady at 1 prem., at which there has ! been an increased firmness in the last two days. On New Orleans, 60 clay bills arc bought at 1 per cent, dis. and interest off.— Reporter. Cattle —Upon thorough enquiry, we find that here and in Covington about 1400 head have been packed this fall for a market. The supply this week is rather less than last, and prices are maintained; ex tremes 3a54.50. A sale of 19 head div. on 600 lbs. at 3a53.60; 30 do., av. wt. 650 lbs., at $3.85; on Monday 120, embracing good and ord. at $3 62.]. Cheese —The market has been inactive in conse quence of the want of supply, and the sales reported do not exceed 500 bxs.; 440 for shipment, at 6} cts.; small lots superior quality at 7]aß cts. Shipping lots would be seized upon with avidity at 6!6] cts. Hogs —The great business of the winter lias com menced, 850 head having been slaughtered for pack ing on last Thursday and Friday, and 700 yester day. About 5000 head have arrived, and other lota are on the road now. We have only heard of one contract within the week, which was at $3.25 per 100 lbs. net. Other lots have been offered since at same rate, without sale, operators being disposed to wait for a more full development of the influences which are to affect the market, the extent of the supply—about which there is doubt—and less proba lity of scarcity; the condition of the Ohio, the state of money matters, &c. The preparations for slaugh tering and packing, arc more extensive in Cincinnati and immediate vicinity than ever before, but we do not look for so large a number of hogs here, even if they arc in the country, as we had last season, as the* facilities for cutting in the country towns are constantly increasing, and the facilities for transport ation to our city are also likely to be greater than ! last year, when the White Water Canal was not navigable.
