The War of the Bival Botes ?One ha< bat 1 to read the organs cf the vaiious aspirants for the next Presidency to realize that, at the I next session, we are to have as vehement and I violent succession of squabbles and intrigues I as have heretofore come off only daring the sot I s:on of Congress immediately prseeding a I Presidential election. A few years ago, the I leading Democratic and V? big journals in the I different States were organs of the party at I large?now they are organs of cliques, or (writing more corretftly) organs of different I aspiring gentlemen in the two great parties I Thus, the New Yerk Tribune and Times are J "rg*ns, not of the Whig party, but of Mr. I Stward, while the Express and Commercial I are organs of the Fillmore interest. The De troit Free Press is the organ of General Casa. 11he Chicago Time? that of Senator Douglas, and the Pennsylvanian Mr. buchanan s or gan; while the Richmond Enquirer is credited with being the organ of Senator Hunter. So they go. We might extend the list by naming, after a brief investigation, the newspaper I organ of every man, great or smail, in either b.anch of Congress It strikes us that the partizan press in our country has fallen amariDgly in coming to look after the lor tunes cf par icular men, rather than to the I conservation of great principles in the go\ I eminent. The eff ct of this deterioration is I seen in jealousy manifested against leading I ^uOlio men by journalist more keenly alive to ttie personal interests of other leaders, than to I a proper appreciation of theduty of doing jus (iue to all iu the party of which they them I skives profess to be members. We are led to I ihe.-e reflections by finding the Richmond En I quirer credited by the Alexandria Gazette with a pbilippio against the Union, in whioh | that journal is cuarged with a conspiracy to I run General Cass a second time, and to incor porate the squatter sovereignty doctrine in the J Democratic creed, by way of greasing the I lieneral's heels for the raco; as it were. Really, the Enquirer is coming to see snakes, L"he clever old Ueneral. we feel assured, would I aa soon think of g'ing to Kam-katka, as running I "gain f?r the Pieiidency at hia time of life. He *ill b? ?*ven y five years old before he could Lake his seat, it clected. This tact should be uflkient to drive any such phantom from the Enquirer man's mind. As for the squatter I *>vereignty doctiiue, we really do not know ihe first man in Wathiogton, Whig or Derno l orat, who belie.es in it in the ultra sense in J which tne Enquirer interprets it. That is, as I ihe right of settlers in Coited Sr.i esTerrito I ries by their action in any manner to inter II ere with the proprietory right* of the General I Government there, or with the political righs in connection with such territories whioh inuro to the citizens of the several States. As it* friends here interpret it, it is fimply the right oi settlers in United States Territories tomako all needful rules for their own government, which shall not interfere either with the rights of the General Government there, or with those of the citizens of the States, one and all. It does not acknowledge the ri^hc of settlers in a Territory to set themselves up as a complete sovereignty, like a State. That is, to take such action as a community, as will set metes and bounds to the rights of the citizens of the States there, whioh they can do on becom ing a State. The Fastern War.?Those who conceived that the Eastern oontest was about to termi nate, now realise that it has but commenced, it being known that an allied army or over sixty thousand men are tn the march to invade the Crimea; Sevastopol, the main military depot in southern Russia, beiug the Ultimate point aimed to be reached. Up to the moment of the commencement of the exe cution of this plan, H was pes-ible for Franoe and Eogland to draw out from the affair, with out awaiting the hazards of real war ' Now, however, the chance has pa*scd They are to fight it out, if it requires ton years to settle 'he questions involved by force of arms. To ua the invasicn of the Crimea is deemed of great importance, by public men i f all parties and nations now in Washiogtoa. Thus, it set tles the question as to the ability of France and England, if so disposed, to meddle with our interests and rights on this side of the Atlantic. They are to have their hands full in the East and Europe, for at least five years, inot for hve times five Our foreigQ commerce mutt greatly profit through their war, at the expense of tkei r tore gy commeree. The commercial effect of this surety that they have at length fairly en tered upon a long, expensive, and very uncer tain career of war, will be as remarkable upon American interests, as was the acquisition of California. We have no space to-day in which to comment at length on the contingencies to America of the invasion of the Crimea, though they crowd thick and fast on our mind. A New British Charge to Bogota ?We learn that Mr Griffith, the able and accomplished Bri.ish secretary of legation to this Govern ment has boen promoted by the Queen to the post of Charge to Bogota, Souih America. A Handsome Compliment.?The United Staea Light Hou e Board in this city have juat received from the wafers of the World's fcair. in New York, one of the sixty-two silver medals which ;hey have distributed, lhis with the diploma, was awarded to the Board for a Fresntre illumiDating apparatus of the firat o;der, manufactured by Mr Henry Le pante, of Paria. It is now in use at Cape Hat teraa Light House. The Board very properly design forwarding the beautifnl medal to M. Lepante, a* being more justly his than theirs. The Naval Engineer Board.?The Bo^rd of Naval Engineers, charged with tbo duty of determinir.g upon the plans and making the contracto for the six new steamers, are again in session in this city, and are now drawing up the contracts whioh were awarded not long since. As soon as they complete that duty, they will decide finally on the plans and ar rangements for the const; ucticn of the last two?one at New York and the other at Nor folk?not yet determined. The Texaa Coast Light-houses ?The Light house Board have information from the vari ot .s lights on the Texas ccast, that the terrible storm not long since occurring in that quarter, did no material damage to any one of those lights, though nearly every buoy on thatcoaat was swept from its position.

NEWS OF TH* FOKfMGHT. THE KLIiCTlOAg. [ From tlie Han Francisco Herald, j The late election was probably the most ex citing that ever took place in California, and in San Francisco in particular the excitement reached to an alarming height and the most seiious consequences were apprehended, in a resume of the.politic?l history of California, it will be necessary to remind our Eastern friends that California has always been a Democratic fct*te In the last Legislature the Democrats had an overwhelming mpjori'y At the last session of the Legislature, one section of the Democracy repeatedly attempted to bring on tue eleciiou of a U. S. Senator to fill a vaoaucy that will not ocour till M-i^ch '55, arid t&e du leaof which uffi^e will not commence till the fallowing December. They were on every ojoasion defeated. Day by day the split in t4e party became wider and wider, till a length t vo distinct factions began to be formed, and oue was de ignuted as the Electionist and tuo other as the Anti-Eiectioni.it party. Tne fight was contiuued to the Sute Conven tion. when a formal split took plaoe, which resulted in the nomination of two Democratic tickets. The Elec:ionists re-nominated our late npresentatives in the National Congress, aod the Anti-Eleotionists Messrs. Denver and Herbert. The Whigs, confident of success, nominated Messrs. Bowie and Benham. On the eve of the election Mr. Latham arrived from Washington, and having been made ac quainted with the position of affairs, withdrew his Fume, and the Electionists nominated in bis stead James Churchman of Nevada. Thos matters stood on the d.iy of electioo The election returns have not yet come in from all parts of the St?te, but it is generally under stood that Messrs. Denver aud Herbert, the nominees of the Anti-Eleciioniet convention, are elected beyond contingency So far av heard from, they are considerihly ahead In the Munioipal elections matters took a different tarn. Just previous to the election rumors were circulated with refereuoe to the org inuation of th-j Know Nothings all over the State, and it wjis expected that their in fluence would be telt to some extent Through out the state. these expectations were realised, but in S.in Francisco tbey carried all befoie them. During the election in this city, the most intenso exci ement prevailed Rumors of corruption bribery, and ballot box stuffing weie rife Several fights took plaoe, and sev era) persons were wounded. Attempts were made to destroy the ballot-boxes in some of the wards, and the popular indignation be came so grett that the most serious conse quences were apprehended Suspicion offoul play was directed in particular to the First Ward in this city, The lynching of all the parties connected with the election in this lo cality was freely discussed, aud to protect themselves cannons were got out, plauted at the corner of the streets, and loaded with deadly charges of pieces of iron, uaila, aud everything that came to band. The gloom n hich hung over tb^oity gradually disappear ed lhj returns came in, and the Know Nothings achieved a triumph, having elected their entire ticket, consisting of Mayor, (3. P. Webb,) Comptroller, City Treasurer. Tax Collecior, Ci<y Marshal, (Jity Attorney, Har bor Master, Judge of the Twelfth Judicial District, Judge ot the Superior Court, City Re corder Public Administrator, and both Boards of the Common Council, with the exception of the Alderman of the Eighth Ward and the Al derman and Assistant Alderman of the First Ward. Anew election will probably be or dered in this ward. - - ' The next Legislature will be constituted as follows: Assembly?Whigs, 34; Anti-Election Democrats, 34; Election DcmocraU, 11. Senate ? Whigs, 7; Anti Election Democrats, 13; Election Democrats, 13. The City. ?Notwithstanding the depression of the money market, which has continued for several months, building operations are being prosecuted with vigor. Maguifioent struct ares are going Up In every quarter of the oity, and in a short time San F rancisco can boast of as splendid edifices at any in the World. 1 he Jewish resident* in this city have re cently ereoted two coatlyJaynagogaee?one on ' Broadway and the other on6tookton strww Tho coat of the two will not fall short of &>0 . 000. They were both consecrated daring the last week and the ceremonies were witnessed by large numbers. 'Captain Thomas R. Hope committed sat aide daring the early part of last week, at his re side noe, on Pina street, by shooting himself through tha breast. Ha wai Captain of tha Steamer Gaadalope. Io the early part of tha month, soma ap prehension ? were entertained that the cholera would be introduced among us and as the Chiqete, from their filthy habits, would be likely to afford material for tha spread of the disease, a crusade was commenced against them. The Chinese merchant* becaae alarmed, and agreed to build an bopital for sick China men outside the limit*, within the space of one month; but some officious persons g.t umong them, and informed them tney were not com pelled to do so, and bo the matter fell through. A stringent ordinance waa parsed by the Com mon Council, and tba new Health Inspector will no doubt oome down pretty heavily on the Asiastics. The arrivals of Chinamen at this port daring the present year exceed tec thousand. The contract for building the House of Re fuge, to b? located about three miles from the city, has been awarded to Messrs Ordemann A Lord at the low sum of $55,000. 'The work is to be commenced immediately. Thk State.?The miners are represented as doing well in every section of the State. The ravages caused by the recent conflagrations throughout the State bave, in a great measure, been repaired. It is now well known that the wheat crop this year will be greatly in exoess of the consumption, and it is expeoted that large quantities of flour will be exported. By tde arrival of the Southerner on the 4:h ins'., from San Diego, we have the particulars of a desperate affray at Monterey, resulting in the death of an American and thelynchijg of a native Califvrnian. The American was a peace officer, named William Hardmou'h. He waa attempting to arrest the Californian for disorderly conduct in a danoe house, when he resised, and finally shot him in the abdc* men with buck shot. The Californian was afterwards dragged from hie bed by a mob, and hung from the eyes of the bouse in which he had committed the murder. Election in WASHiaeTow Territory.?We have as jet no return lrom the election in W shiegton Territory, except rumor, which says the Democrats have elected a majority to the Legislature. Sahdwich Islands ?The lates dates from the Sandwich Islands are to August 7th Nothing of any importance transpired sincr. The restoration of Hnwaiian independence was celebrated on the 31st ot July, with great pomp. There was much talk of annexation. Marquesas Islands.?By the arrival of the Swiss Boy we have received later intelligence from the.?e interesting islands. The natives were rapidly depopulating them by intestine wars, and the French looking on tflth com placency, as it tends to their lacility for occu pying theffir* TBe-mi?ri?naries Lad met with but litile success, and were about abandoning their positions. Society Islands ?Later dates from Huah eine give information of the cessation of the war. and the firm establishment of the revo lutionary chief on the throne. IMPORTANT FRO\l SINGAPORE. * We have received our files of Singapore papers to July 1st Tiik Chimkse Outbreak in Singapore? Punishmert of the Okpbxdkrs.?During the la ter part of May, there were violent eon flic s on the Islaud of Singapore, between rival parties of Chinese, who compose nine-tenths of the population of the Island So deadly be came tne feud, ard ro serious the disturbances, that the British Governor was obliged to call out the militaiy to suppress them This was finally accomplished, and a large number ot the rioters were arrested.

The Samatra waa on h cruise in he Molucca seat, and came to an anchor in Keina harbor on the 14th May, to take on board refreshment* and quinine for the crew, many of whom had h?-en attacked by fever. On the morning of the 18th, about half-pa.<<t four, a fire waa observed in the store room, and -o rapidly did irtspread, that by six all hope of saving the ship was abandoned ; very few of the ship's stores were saved, and the crew lost the whole of their clothes.

P. Kennedy. 8ALTIM0RE CORRESPONDENCE. Baltimore, Oot. 9,1854 Our city to-night is in a perfect blase of political excitement. I have never before Eeen so intense a feeling. The Democrat seem to bave put shoulder to the wheel in un mistakable earnest. They are sleeplessly vigilant, and leave no stone unturned. Watch tires are kindled all over the city. Shouts ascend from ton thousand tongues. The soul stirring dram is beard beating to arms As I write, immense processions, with banners, transparencies mosio, tbe big gun booming: at iutei vals, are passing en route to the grand rally or Democratic mass meeting ia Exchange Plaoe, where are now in council probably twenty thousand persons. The entire Square is literally packed with an attentive audience to the speake's who are addressing theui How it is possible for this vast phalanx of Democracy, with its bone and sinew, to be overcome by a secret, unseen opponent, oan not be eonjectured. There are those, how ever, who profess to know, and they ate freo in asserting that Hinks, will win the day. The Know Nothings, however, do not seem willing to wager ou such large ma jorities as they did some days ago, whilst their opponents seem to be gaining courage. It is estimated iLat not less than one thousand nat uralization papers were given out within the past few days, and what is singular, some ot them procured, as report has it, by theNatives, lor their foreign Protestant friends. Just now an immense procession of Know Nothings, with musio, banners, and transpa rencies, Ac , have passed down Baltimore street, towards the Point. The prooession was a half mile in length and seemed to spring into life without the slightest previous herald ing. They were a noisy set of fellows, and1 made night hideous with shouts, roaring of pis ols, groans, Ac. It is hinted that a con siderable portion of "he young Temocracy is among them ; but this, however may be a mis take. The Know Nothings as they aTe termed, have been lying low. They make no special publio demonstrations, but are undoubtedly s rong, especially so if backed by the Whigs. I would not tborefore bet either way. Nick Kelly, who seldom misses his mark, and often ventures largely upon the result of elections, generally backing his Democratic fai.h with the rhino, is taking bets freely, though at odds, on ihe suocesk of Mr. Thomas. We must wait until Thursiay night for the result Next Wednesday will, beyond all doubt, be a day of great excitement. There are serious apprehensions of disturbance atd bloodshed It an outbreak orce commences, no one .can tell where, when, or how it may end The ele ments in this contest are of a fierce and high ly explosive character. I hope, however, that we may escape the degradation and terrible consequences of rows and rowdyism.
