eighteen days later than were before received. The Pana?

the blockading squadron a* an act of special courtesy to the
American flat:, by the British cornmander. It is understood
the Kosciusko had on board 13.000 chests Congo Tea, and
probably -ailed for Singapore
The political news by this arrival is of no erear import?
ance. The English commander was becoming distrustful oi
the intention* of the Celestials: the British fleet had been
been got ready for action, and an attack on the Bogue Forts
was to hare taken place on the 28:h of December. On the

The Chin.had junks, loaded with stor.e. stationed on

Bogue Korr* succwfully to oppose the British fleet- The
troops at Chusan had been reduced by death aad removals
of invalid-, nearly one-third in four month* and a half. They
had received a full -apply of provisions, which had done
much toward- relieving their distresses. Tne war was ap?

termination as ever.

PJf' If the gentleman who manages the County Clerk's
Otfice. alike under Whig and Tory supremacy, imagines that
?he official returns of vote- cast at Elections are deposited
in that office for 4tJ especial perusal or benefit, he mistakes
entirely. They are so deposited that the public mavhavc
the benefit of them. When, therefore, he refuses our re?
porter permission to take a copy, he is guilty of gross injus?
tice, not to u? ouly. br.t to our readers. But for hi* churl?
ish abuse of power, we should have given the official canvass
of many of the Wards yesterday. We shall no: take an?
other such refusal so tamely.
KF Robert H. Morris is elected Mayor of this Citv bv not

CT- - John Smith. Jr.. of Arkansas.- is amu*,nC the read?
ers of the Evening Post with his Munchauscnism-. dated at
Bostou. His last treats of the reception of President Tv
Jer'a Address, and plumply asserts that the Whig, of Bos
ton discredited its genuineness, and scouted its doctrines '?
That same' John Smith. Jr.,' practices the greatest 'econo- !
my of truth' of any man we ever heard of.
We are not yet enabled to lay before our readers penee*
return? of tie -rotes rast in this city a: the iate Election. It
is known, however, that the Loco-Focos have ejected their
Mayor and retained a much reduced majority in our Com?
mon Council ? by the skir. of riv.r teeth.' Their fair average
? majority trill not reach 300 votes.
We are as fully convinced as we ever were of any fact
that the late defeat of the Whig party in this city?ir rn:her
its nerlec: to triumph?is the best rjarraritee of it* future
- :?-.-? ?-. Many Whirs with an overweening cnnfid.-r.ee pe?
culiar to the party, and which has always rendered them
r..i: -.v.-:* ;r. the ey.-s of their opponent-, considered the bat
tie as assuredly won before had commenced: and looked
ur?on the Election as a mere formality, which was :o pu:
the Whig party ;?: possession of the City Government. Ir.
consequence of this prevalent opinion, all the usual ar.d ne?
cessary arranrements. to brine out the voters to the polls,
were shamefully neglected in many of the Words until the
; very day of the Election: and m.>re than a sufficient nuxn
j ber to have decided the result in favor of the Whig party
I were induced to remain at home, from a real conviction that
their votes were not required to ensure succes?. They
i scouted the idea that such a roan as Morris could possibly
e-t the vote* even of his own party, and they considered the
proofs cf the waste and corruption of the Common Council
so clearly established, that their defeat was deemed certain
and inevitable. Th'-se confiding gentlemen awoke the next
mornine and found the Whig party defeated by a very small
majority. Morris had been elected, and the Looo-r oco
I misrule perpetuated in the Common Council for nt least one
? more year. They had the mortification n!*o to perceive that
j this serious rni-fortune and di-eraee to the city had been en?
tirely produced by their own culpable negligence ; nnd very
! many of tliem. with evident contrition, have -ince admitted
j the fact.
The lesson will no: be forgotten in future, and those e->nd.
easy, confiding' souls will henceforth perceive, that leieo He?
roism in this city will nut die of itself?will not die becasse
it is prostrated elsewhere?is not t" be beaten without a seri?
ous effort, under any circumstance s. What can possibly be
more absurd than to suppose that a party which may be said
as such to subsist, from the highest to the lowest, either di
rcctlv, indirectly er hopefully, upon the offices and appoint
j meats'of the Mayor and Common Council, and the plunder
? of the City revenue should ever lack the means of makine a
I stotit stnicele for the preservation of the spoils ?. It is very
j true that there appeared to he much confusion and many ap
i parent divisions amone the Loro-Foco? just before the elec
j tion. But who, that has attended to the tactics of that party
! does no: know, that these pretended divisions, are usually
! preconcerted and designed, purposely continued, for the sake
of getting up an excitement among themselves, knowing that
j they ran be compromises! and allayed without the slieht^st
] difficulty, and that the only effect is to excite interest and
j stimulate their partisans to go to the polis 7 It is hieh time
that the Whigs should perfectly under-tand the true charac
f tcr of their opponents, and not continue forevrr to be the
I dupes of their tricks and artifices.
? The Whies have a decided majority over the Locc-Focos
j in this City, as appears by the Registry. There is no serious
I diversity of opinion nmonest them, as to the measures or the
! policy of the Government of their choice. Their nomina
j tions have all been made this spring without the least dissen
tion or difficulty: whilst the L.icn-Focos have boon disheart?
ened and dispirited by the overthrow af their party through?
out the country last fall, and the honest portion of them have
been diseusted with the numerous exposures of official frauds.
On the part of the Whigs there was every reason to expect
success, and every inducement to achieve it: whilst on the
part of the I.oco-Fo.-os. there was every reason for despon?
dency : and. with n very considerable portion of them, scarei Iv?
an object for mukine an effort, or a motive for desiring"suc

Wo shall recur to this subject very often : if there is any
I mysterious influence opcrutine upon the Whig party which
' could have produced its defeat at I he late Election, other
that; that to which we have alluded, we are not aware of it ;
and if we discover any sich hereafter we shall most certainly
expose it. Th-- prosperity of this City, and the eond of the
Country ? , that the principles of the Whig purtv
should c out and its measures have a fair triul; and
every Whig ? false to his duty, who neglects any opportunity
in his power to promote these ep-at ends.
} (?j~' The Albany Argus cannot conceal its chnjrin at the
result of t'tie Charter Election in our city. It leads off" in its
F.dt'.oriai matter with a tall flourish about the '! Triumph of
; the New-York Di ?craey!" but puts no returns in that
vicinity, though it i.as hitherto music them most conspicuous.
On tin- occasion it smuggles in the majorities for Muv?r at
the foot of a distant column of selections, pretending to copy
??from the Evening Post," but in truth falsifying the returns
, ofthat paper :o conceal the extent of the Loco-Foro disas?

ETT There is a neat specimen of hard cyphering tn las:
I evenine's Am,'. A note to the re:urns of the Thirteenth
; Ward reads as follows :
??In this Ward, adding together the votes given for Bon

i Simonsau and Tappan, Whigs, the Whig vote is 1,950. mak
' ing a Democrat! ? majority in the Ward of 941, as above."
j Of coe rse adding together the votes of their /reo cand'- I
dates, and subtracting the vote of their Whig opponents, gives
! just double their actual majority. If tney had carried out
the principle thoroughly, and added up the votes of all the
. candidates on each ticke:, they w ould make out a very re-v
I portable majority. Why not do so ? I: would doubtless
; have added io the ' moral sublimity ' of the Paper-Snatcher's
election: except for the unfortunate circumstance that the
same pr-vess carried through nil the Wards would show a
decided Whig majo.-itv in the Citv!

DzarSir: What a ccs^ee has our Governrr.ezt passed
tbrourh within the la*: six weeks ! And yet how barmoni
ojsIy and securely the system work*.' We bare passed
through revolutions that would have -.bakes the foundations
of the firaos: monarchies of Europe. The whirlwind is
passed?the gloom i* over?and there stands our GlORJOCS
I CoMTrrrnoy, like Ada*, propping the skies. I never until
( now felt the rr.orai p^ndevr of our fbraf ot Government,

ed that the events of the last few weeks had more deeply
imprisssed his mind with the safety and conservative power
of our ---stem, than all he had ever before read of or wit?

these events will produce upon all thinking minds in Europe.
You will see that Presides: Tt:.er. in accordance with the
J eenerai feelings of the People, ha* recommended a uay of
Fasune and National Humiliation. I think the simple and
brief prochunadon which be puts t?rth is a model tor com?
positions of that kind. Yon may rely upon it. President

One of the wisest acts of Genera'. Harrison, was the se?
lection of his Cabinet. An abler body of men. as a whole,
probably never sat in the Presidential councils. President

charactei entitles them to receive. They are ' working-men.

confusion in which the Departments were found, imposes an
additional amount of labor upon the Secp-taries. in ordct to

the pa-t Administration. But they are resolute and indefati?

Tnrd j'ir Murder.?Elias Thomas was tried week before
last at Amherst N. II., for tin1 murder of Charles Small on
the7th of September ia-t. It appeared in evidence that
Thomas on that day, was at the public house of Mr. McCol
lorn in Mt. Vernon deeply intoxicated anil verv noiev and
troublesome. McCollom urged him to go away from the
house, and led him ofl' some distance when Small comine up
told McC. to return to the house and he would eet Thomas
away. . Some dispute arose between them anil Small while
endeavoring, with his arm around the prisoner, to urre him
nlone. received a stab in the abdomen anil soon bled to death.
The trial occupied two days and the jury found Thomas guil
ty of murder in the second deeree. He was sentenced to
the Penitentiary for life. This is the fourth case of death bv
violence caused by drjnkeniioss in N -w Hampshire within
the last few months.

I Execution of Peter Robinson.?Agreeably to the sea
! tence of the Court, this wretched man expiate! hts murder
\ of Abraham Suydam on the gallows yesterday afternoon.
The annals of crime present no instance which equals this m
the cold-blooded atrocity of the art, or in the brutally ur
: .ea>a:c deportment of the murderer in view of hi* fast ap'
reaching and most terrible doom. No motive, worthy tne
name, could be discovered for the hellish act,?the mur?
derous thoughts of his own stony heart alone .prompted the
' deed: =? fiend could look upon death?violent, disgraceful
and .-'.ose at hand, with as much heartless indifference, and
\ such heaven-defying emotions as seem to have dwelt; within
i him c?en to the last. Not for a moment did he manifest any
, heartfelt sorrow?no thought ef a future retribution seemed
to stir within him. but in cold, unfeeling stolidity, or with a
ghastly, heart-chilling mirth?he died as the fool dioth?and
went with unwashed hands and with bloody thoughts to meet
' his unhappy victim at the bar of Eternal Ju-tice.
From the tenor of his life we can discover nothing ia his
I circumstances?no grinding poverty, no maddening reverses
of fortune, and no habits of intemperance whick would lead
him in ways ?f such fearful wickedness. His own heart's
passions. uncurU'd. and from his youth, left to riot in their
own violence, seem to have hurried him from vice :o ?nme
and from the scaffold to the bar of .Judgement. Like
thousands now among us. he spent the early part of his life
; unrestrained bv parents or instructors, untaught in the ways
of even decent morality, mingling with the low. vicious vaga
' bonds, both mab- and female, that infest our streets, and
' growing up with a heart dead to all good impressions.
fatally poisoned by bad example and unhallowed influences.
; and irnviaimnbly sunk in the mire of pollution and guilty
I indulgence. When ho left the city?though he escaped in
some degree the contamination of wicked associates, he yet
I carried with him the same depraved disposition, the same
j reckless disregard of law and right, and the same unholy
passions which had ever ruled his soul. For many years
i they seemed to sleep, or at least to break forth in no violent
acts winch have met the eye of man. But they seemed only
I to gather strength and calm intensity by this slumber: and
. when at last they went forth?it was with a still and terrible
i violence which finds no parallel in the records of guilt, l.w
I sickening interest and the fiendlike inhumanity which marked
the death scene of his murdered victim, we have never read
so dreadful a tale as that said to have been uttered by his
own lips.
But he has gone from the scene of his guilty life and his
ignominious death.?to the presence of his Maker and his
Judge. For him the Past is sealed up?and his -t?te is
fixed. But can we look upon tho ways which he trod, upon
j the mariner of his early life and the end of his days, and then
\ turn our eyes to the multitudes who throng our city, as
! uncared for. a< vicious and fur removed from all good intlu
1 ences as himself, and not learn wisdom' The lesson comes
? home to us with renewed force that these wTOtcbed,deserted
I outcasts must be cared for?must be taught obedience to law
j and duty, or when they grow up to the stature ot mi r.?
