The eleventh annual report of the managers of thf
State I.unatic Asylum, 'or the year ending Decern Hor 1, |
1853, submitted to t..e Assembly in February la*t. his :
been received. From the annual ieport of the Supsrin- <
tendent it appears that a larger number of patients
were received into the asylum than in auy prer un j
year, and that a large number of application* for ud
mittauce have been decline I for lack of accommodation. (
The whole number admitted since the a-vluni was
opened, on the 16th January, 1S43, is 3,923; of whim i
I.625 hare been discharged recovered. 85 mnoh i;n- l
pro Ted, 59f> improved, 763 unimproved. and 4(kl have died.
The number admitted duriu,; the y.ar was l.!4, giving ,
? toisl of 840 under ii eatnu ni iu tJie oourH of the year.
Of this number 16V were di?chan?ed recovered, 21 much
improved, 45 improved, li 19 unimproved, and 39 have
died, leaving 44t remaining at the end of the year.
We learn Irom the treasurer's report that the receipts
of t In* year amount to $114, 6o7 42, after all payments, a .
balai.ee remained in the treasury ol $2,5?il 05.
The number of admissions lias heed greater by 31 than
on the previoua year ? M more males and 27 lesi women. '
Jt is ?u observable fact that the number of males hM ex- \
ceedod that of any previous year. By far the largest j
number of patient* admitted were between the ages ol 20
and 30.
Of the total number admitted, eighty males and ten
females were intemperate; sixty-nfese males and thirty- i
one females addicted to the use of tobatyo. Twonfy-uine
of the whole number received an aca bunic and three
hundred and two a common school education. !?ixty-Qve
could lead and write, twenty eight had no education.
One hundred and forty two inen, and forty -litre women

In regard to the former occupation of the patients ad
milted, it appears that those engaged in domestic occu

we have 84 employe 1 in housework, nn 1 <15 housekeepers ,

A long and interesting list of the probable causes of
derangi mont is given in the Superintendent's report.
The greatest predisposing causes are: ?
Intemperance and vice 64
Onanism 67 j
Domestic troubles 30
Business perplexities 12
This lost item is beginning to constitute an alarming |
feature iu the report of o.ir insane asylums. The lists
of predisposing causes of insanity, issued by those insti- i
Unions during the Ust fen years, show with sufficient I
plainness the fearful ede ts ol indulge ico in this mise
rable delusion. And probably but a small pr iportiun of i
these causes iind their way Lulo an asylum for th ? insane. |
The injury actually accomplished by the spirit rapping l
mania, through the "medium'' of "circles," spiritual
publications and peripatetic lectures cannot be estimated
i>y annual reports.
During the year, the institution appears to have been
more than ordinarily successful in its mode of treatment,
lbV having been discharged recovered; 45 having been .
pronounced improved, and 21 much improved.
Tho asylum has been warmed and ventilated lately at |
a large outlay. The workhouses for patients have con- '
tinned in successful operation, and have been a source of
benefit to them as well as u prolit.

The Selection In !\>w Orleans and the Riot.
[From the New Orleans Cresccut. March U8.1
The excitement, the contest, an>l, we must a<id, the ;
disorder at some of the many polls of our city was yen- '
terday such as to forbid ail possibility of our to-day's 1
presenting any returns nt :? 11 to be relied upon.
Other thing*, however, of tlio most deplorable nature,
are, we lament to say, abetter ascertained. NTot only ?vas
there, at the Seventh wnrd poll, (heretofore the chief
scene of fraud and turbulence ) a vust deal of both, but
finally there was bloodshed aud death.
At that point where, from previouH practices, it was
?well known tlm\ all the vigilance, backed l>y all the
strength of the friends of legal voting, wo il i be neces
sary, in order to defend the ballot- box from unbounded
imposition we were, except for a short interval, person
ally present during the entire scene. We little thought
ever to witness such a one in a country which at least is
yet entitled to be free.
In spite of tbo throng of determined friends of order
and of fairness who guarded the polls, tho voting was
almost a continual scene of outrage aud of open perjury,
aided and abetted, in the must shucking manner, by the
one-sided commissioners, who. in total defiance of their
duty, and of the challenges of the must respectable citi
zens, admitted a great body of false votes, and uppa- (
rently in the end have preferred then. selves to eke out
to aay extent which the state of the polls elsewhere may
needful; even that iniquitous state of the poll
which their own violation of duty had created.
tor, while at the closing of tho polls, it was proclaimed
that but 9o2 votes had been registered, it is now, at the
hour when we write, one in the morning, declared that
they have counted no less than 1,400 vo.es ? a number
which they will, no doubt, be ready to change to a still
higher figure, should it be necessary. To give an idea of
the manner in which such things hare been brought !
about, we need recite but a .-ingle instance; in one case, :
a ?>ody of twenty men who liad vot>d at the Fourth pre
cinct, were seen to set out for 1he seventh ward, headed !
by severs I police office: s They wore thereupon followed i
by a citizen of great respectability, whose person and ;
character are known to almost everybody, l'as-ong into 1
the place of voting ahead of them, he warned the com
missioners and the bystanders of the approach ami pur- I
pose of these men. In A ain, however ; the commissioners !
were deaf to his information and to the protests of those 1
around them. They were Jmt only permitted to vote but.
we are assured, passed without i von the ceremony of
swearing. Beyond a question, multitudes of voters who '
were challenged were allowed to vote without really j
swearing, l or the questions and oath were repeated to
them as rapidly ?s possible, without Waiting for an an ?
?wer, so that no one could tell what he swore, nor hear
what he answered.
About two o'clock, .in attempt was n; ado to drug one
Of the indejiendent challengers from his stan !. The as
sailants were instantly driven back aud Ued with vast
After awhile, however, a fresh on?et, led by one of the
officers ?>f the police, and encouraged by other official '
.persons, burst into the large ball sndonee more attempt- ,
?d to drive out the reform party, wthoee only oHfoncc had \
consisted in ch:1 Merging bad voters and preventing i
frauds. The onslaught was led by one Uocler, the bro- |
ther of him who was killed on Sunday morning in a brawl '
provoked by his own uasaults. This second bro ber was
like him, a police officer. Ills followers were a band of \
picked vuftians, wielding clubs with bare arms. As in
the former esse, they dashed at the reform men, who oc- I
cupied a large part of the hall. The mere sight of such
An attempt by such a band kindled up, of course, a vio
lent indignation. They were met in the fiercest manner.
The clubs weie lifted in the air; but fe .. blows were
?dealt upon the crowd, before weapons still more decisive
were plucked forth; a rush was madt?upon them, and in
scarcely more than the twinkling of an eye thov were \
cast forth from the doors and the windows, in utter I
route. Their leader, Mocler, was struck bv a blow of a I
knife, from which he died almost at once; and another '
of the party wae laid out in little b-tter condition. Some j
others an Bald to hav e been wounded.
After this there was quiet voting for the rest of tho
Various efforts were no doubt made to lead on new par
ties to the attack, wined with musket < seized at one of |
the armories. i>0t fortunately these efforts were unsuc
cessful, or were given up. It was clear that American
Mood wns up. and that any fresh attempt to trample on
it would bo yet more signally punished.
Grievous is it that we should hare such things to re
late in a country of the laws, in a eountrj where the
rights of Americans have never before been so daringly
assailed, while they were attempting merely to exercise,
in peace and in honesty, the great right of suffrage. In
defending it they have been forced to spill blood, but it
must rest on the heads of those who had trained to c >r- I
ruption and tinalh urged on to a murderous assault the
body of men of whom 'lie two victims were a part.
lAst night, about eleven o'clock, a company of men
proceeded to the Seventh ward polls, where it was re
lated tho votes were being counte 1 without the pre
Bence of any witnesses of the reform party, and re '
quested admittance to th" room in which it was being
done, in order to see that no foul play ?as practised.
They were refused admittance, whereupon tho door of
the room was burst open. Those inside fired several
she's from pistols at the party outside, none of which,
however, took effect, save inflicting a slight wound upon
Mr. O' Leery. Chief of Police, who was outside.
We have heard of several rows which occurred in va
rious othes parts of the city during the day. but nom of
them were attended with very serious consequences.
?Several arrests were made during the day.
It was reported in the streets this morning, at four
o'clock, as wc were going to press, that the room whye
the ballot box of the Seventh ward wae deposited, had
been broken open by a Urge number of men, the ballot
box taken, and its contents scattered in tho streets.
In nearly all the precinct- he?rd from up to the time 1
of our going to megs this morning, the reform ticket had
been elected by large majorities.
Exnunntoov a Hi man Hody in a PrrKiFiw) ? Yes- j
terday afternoon, as some workmen were engage 1 in ex- j
cavatinga cellar on Linton street, a short distance below
John, ther came in contact with a hard substance about I
nine teet below the grade of the street, which, after some
trouble was exravsted ami brought to light, and proved
to be a human body in a jerfect state of pctriiactioa.
This extraordinary specimen of the human race is a tnalo
about five feet- seven inche., in length. The hair is cut
very short, snd seems to have l>ceu shaved in several
Jiarts, as its formation is perfect and ap|>arcntty unin
ured by time. The face is singularly formed, and differ
ing in shape and expression from any of the race* of the
present age What Is more remarkable, the body is perfect 1
in all its | arts, every muscle, fibre and sinew being per
fectly developed. The color is rather (fa lufct grey,
and in some parts approaches very near to the white
man, although this may hare been produced >y the ac
tion of the soil in which it has been buried, perhaps for
ages. A number of eminent scientific gentle men visited
this remarkable and strance exhumation yesterday after
noon, but nothing of a dc tin ;te character <v is arrived at re
lative to the cause, or what length of tim? it had lain
there, although all agreed that several hundred years
?null have elapsed since it was buried. The Ik>1v will be
removed to the City Council Chamber, in the City Build
ing!, this morning, where it may be seen by those of our
citizens who are desirous of witnessing mis' of the most
wonderful freaks of nature. On Monday it will be hi"
ped to the National Instil ute at Washington, where it '
will remain permanently for the inspect! n of the world I
at large. ? Cinrinnali A'1171/irer, Jpit I 1.
An affray took place in Charlottesville, Va., on the 3d
Inst., between a student of the Cniversity, named Flour
noy, and a young Mr Garth, of Albemarle, in which the
latter was wnunoed? mortally it Is thought. A difficulty
had occurred between the parties a few days before, near
the University, about some rattle which Mr. GArth was
driving. On this occasion i.srth met Hournoy, as weare
informed, in front of the MonticeJIo House, and the en
counter was at once commenced. Garth was shot in
several places and severely cut. He is not expected to
.survive. Hournoy received a severe cut in the arm, but

A correspondent in our paper of March 14, says the

lady resident in the town of Marshall, in this county,
who had attained the remarkable age of 107 years.
Hardly bad we published bis note, however, before she ,
passed away. On the 16th of March, with hardly any
I revious indications of so speedy a departure, she termi
nated her earthly career. She was born in October, 1747, 1
anil *?,- consequently a woman grown when the lirclarn
tion of Independence \fas signed. Her recollection of |
the events of those days were vivid in the extreme. She
was undoubtedly the oldest person in the county at tlie
time of her death.* We are informed her oldest daugh
ter survives l.cr, at the venerable age of 80 years.

geiioed to stream-then this supposition.

I seen dart'nf from the roof of the Messrs. Sturtwvant's
' extensive planing establishment, on the corner of Michi
gan and Seneca streets, near the canal. It seems to be
;i nfntter of debate whet hej this fire was the work of an
J incendiary or not. The wiad was carrying clouds of
! ?] arks in that direction, and the building was composed
i of, and contained, the most combustible materials.
I (Since writing tho abuve, we learn that one of the Messrs.
j Sturtevant saw the Are communicated by sparks to the
, roof.) The mill was soon consumed to the earth The
| loss of this establishment is $'20,000, with an insurance
I of $1,000. Tho exceedingly inflammable nature of the
j building prevented the obtaining of insurance. Much
sympathy is expressed for the Messrs. Sturtrvant, who
i have so suddenly lost their all, after having just got into
; successful operation in their business.
In addition to the planing mill a number of adjoining
building? were destroyed with astonishing rapidity. So
furiously did the flfttnes spre-.d that it w.is with difficulty
many ot 1lie inmates escaped. Considerable furniture
was destroyed. The house and brewery of John Sohenck,
mineral and soda water and ale maker, was partially
destroyed? loss $3,300. He was not insured. A larg ?
number of bottles containing various liquids were
broken, and several casks of alcoholic liquors were
destroyed. A good portion of hia stock was, however,
The rows of small buildings, stables, and residences
on and back from the street, were burned down. The
I horses and cattle wero saved with difficulty. Three
ana 11 cottages opposite the mill, on Seneca street, were
John Bappl'.e, carriage maker, was also a sufferer to
the amount of $1,000, with an insurance of $1,000. The
three houses of Mr. Martin Bill were worth $500, and no
insurance. The lumber burned outside of tbo mill must
have been worth several hundred dollars.

While this fire was raging with 'scarce any opposition
the btdl in the tall steeple of the Baptist church, near
; by, pealed forth another '? loud alarm." We could nut
help ob-erving tho expression of fesr and alarm on the
I countenances of tho crowd, when the deep notes of the
hell struck t heir ears. A large number immediately
started for Erie street , it being rumored that the third
, (ire was on the corner of that street and I<ake street,
j The (irrinen were by this time wearied out; but many of
them hastened to the new scene of devastation. In a
short time two houses were destroyed. Tbo one on the
corner, in which the tire originated, was unoccupied.
The incendiary had kindied the fire in the north east cor
ner, and the flames had made considerable headway be
fore they were discovered. A family was to have moved
into this bouse on Monday. It was owned by Mr. Keyser,
whose loss is probably $000 to $R00. The next building
was owned by the Widow McAnolly. and was occupied by
three Irish families. In the first story there was a gro
cery. We did not learn whether these buildings were
It is impossible at present to gi re I lie aggregate loss of
property by the three fires. Many families were driven
from llieir homes, but were hospitably cared for by
neighbors. There is no doubt but tbat two of these fires
, were caused by incendiaries, and we earnestly hope tne
' fcoundri Is may be caught and punished as their crimes
deserve. It becomes our city watch to keep an unusually
vigilant eye upon suspicious persons prowling about tho
streets late at night. i

It It was not Adopted tbAt eveniug, And they not meeting
until Monday next, why tbe LegislAture would Arrive here
unwelcomcd by tbe city Authorities, And it would be dis
grAcetul for them to neglect the members of the LegislAture
li. thAt WAy; therefore, as Mr. Clnncy objected t* the Adop
tion of the resolntion.it lAy over nnder tbe rule, And, to
Avoid tbAt difficulty, he moved for A suspension of tbe rule*.
Mr. Hodgeimon wonld like to know ii tbe Common Coun

lia<i charged and upset tbe different departments and bu
rei.us of the city government? Was, then, the Common
Council to bumble themselves before A set of Buncombe men,
who nevei did At . y good for their constituents except cre
ating confusion iu tho different departments and bureaus oi
our city government t He hoped the rules would not be
suspended, and the paper would take Its regular courso.
Mr Cooper ? 1 am in favor of suspending tho rules. It
may be thAt a great deal of interest is felt In tho matter,
became we hAve had A temperance? a Maino law defoated.
I hope tbe members of the Common Council do not wish to
five them A reception on this Account. However, I hope the
legislature will be received And cordially welcomed to our
city, Although I Am sorry thAt Governor Seymour did not
lign tbe Main Law bill.
Mr. North ? 1 would like to Ask the gentlemnu of the
Forty-fourth (Hodgkimon) if those members of the LegislA
ture who voted to tAke away from tho Common Council
their rights, were not rurAl members f
Mr. Hodgkinson ? I will Answer the gentleman of the
Sixtieth by informing lilm that Mr. Henry Waring. a mem
ber of the Legislaturo from the city of New York, when tho
matter of cleaning streets came up, said that $1*0,000 was
too much for keeping onr city clean. And he got thirty-four
members to vote against the meAsnre with him.
Mr. Mather ? The LegislAture intending to visit onr city
and its institutions, I think it would be shameful if we did
not welcome them According to the nsuAl custom. I think
they Are entitled to it from the high position they occupy,
aside from any power in onr hands. Let us do the thing
handsome, whatever else be said or done.
The question on the snspention of the rules was then put
And carried.
The question on tho adoption of the resolution was then
put, And declared carried (evidently so) by the Chair, when
Mr. IIcdgeinson rose and said that the Chair had not
stated the question properly. Hv bAd not Asked the Board if
they were rtady for the qua tion, and instead of doing so,
rushed the thing through, And dcolAred the resolutim
Adopted. Now the gentlciran of the Forty-fourth contend
ed that such being the facts in tho case, the resolution was
not adopted, as declArcd by the ChAir.
Chairman? The gentleman of the Forty-fourth is oat of
order, and will tAke bis scAt.
Mr. UorcKinaoii? I Am not out of order, And will not sit
Chairman? Tho gentleman of tbe Forty-fourth is groAtly
mistaken. 1 stated the question, asked tbe Board If they
were ready for it, And no one seeming to speak, the question
was pot by me, and tho resolution Almost unanimously car
tlcd. Therefore, tho gentleman of the Forty fourth will
take his scat, as ha is ont of order.
Mr. Hoi ckinson? I w ill not take my seat, as I am In or
cr. 1 beg 1 'Ave t? differ with the Chairman, and believo
o did not say, " Are you reAdy for tho question?"
Mr. KiNMDv-Then appeal from the decision of the
Chair. You can do that.
Mr. IIOLCKINSOA? I do not choose to do so, but am much
obliged to y iu for your information.
Mr. Kemnedy ? Then I move for tbe expulsion of the gen
tleman of tbe Forty fourth from the room. (Groat excite
( liAiRMAH? Sergeant-At- Arms, do your duty; removo the
pentlefenu of the Forty-fourth from the room, or make him
take his seat.
Ibe Sergeant at Arms went up to tbe gontlmnan of the
Forty-fourth, and placed his hAnd on hit shoulder; when
Mr. Mathf.r rose (amidtt the excited members,) and Ap
pealed to the gentleuittn of the Forty -fourth to take his seat,
as he rose to a point of order.
Mr Hodoeihion ? I Admit that I am somewhat exoited,
and It is tbe gavelllng of the Chairman that has wrought
them up to such a pitoh. Bnt be was to the best of his be
lief in order. And wonld not be bullied by Any body.
(haiiiman Asked permission of the Bonrd that the gen
tleman of the Forty-fourth might continue bin remark?,
although believing firmly thAt he was entirely t ut of order.
'Ibe question being put on Mr. Hodgkinson's retaining tho
floor, it WAS decidec that he was in ordnr. and that he might
continue his remarks. He said : Now that 1 have the pcrinis
sion of the Board to proceed In my remnrks. And oxplain tho
reason why I kept the floor in opposition to the repeated raps
of tho Chairman's hammer, 1 should like to know why it is
that whenever I rise In my place as A member of this Board, I
have been told to tAke mv Mint, and tho Chair Iias endeavor
ed to gag me by continually rapping with his hammer, which
i.i the means of irritAting me. as 1 have been lAboring undor
nervous disease for thelAst two or three yeArs. I have,
wl.en 1 cnpised any measure, been gagged and put down in
my teat hv tho Chair New, as regards the facts, 1 would
SAy tbAt tne Chairman put the question without Announc
ing thnt it was open (or debate. This rnshing business
throi gh has been tho means of a greAt ileal of ooufusion. Do
ycu suppose it Any member wished to make A remark he
wonld like to be called to order, and told to take liis seat r
No. 1 don't think bo would. And it was to prcicrvo my j
rights in this pArticular that I rose, and contend"'! ' tat as
the resolution was lot Adopted I had a perfect right to tho
Mr. KEWNEirr moved that a voto of thank* be t omtcred to
tho gentleman of the Forty-fourth, for his eloquent ha
Severai. Member* ? Oh no? ^ withdraw that.
Mr. Kennedy? "Well, then, I withdraw.
'Ibe President then said that ho had indulged the gen
tleman of tbe Forty-foortb more thAn uny other member of
tbo Board, perhaps; and had At All timos extended to him
w liat courtesies he possibly could. The Chair put the q ties
tion after he bad stated it, and asked the mcmbors if they
were ready for tbe question. The resolution was Adopted,
when the gentlemen of tho Forty-fourth SAid tho resolution
was not curried, as the question was not put properly. I,
however, did put the question properly, and the resolution
was Adopted. I will stick to my decision through thick And
thin. The CbAir it a man of hii ward.
After transActing some other important business, tho
BoArd Adjourned until Monday evening next.
