Froau tbe Baltimore .Suu, Nov. 8.
Election.?City Summaky.?Wo deferred the
re-insertion of our table yesterday morning, because
we fouiid it impossible to arrive at anything more
t ha a au approximation to the real vote cast in the
city for the several candidate*!. To-day we pub
lish the table complete, and according to the offi
cial returns, it having been revised from the Itooks
of the judges, and is therefore reliable lor future
reference.
? The vote for Ligon for governor is 12,880, and
for Bowie 9,84(1; Ligon's majority 3,010.
For comptroller, Wbyte 12,471; Thomas 9,939;
Whyte's majority 2,532.
For lottery commissioner, .Roberts 12,707 ; Ri
cmid 9,650; Roberts' majority 3,111.
For commissioner of public works, FalU 12,019;
Alexander, 9,303 ; FalU majority 3,289.
The above comprises the State ticket, and the
democratic candidates, whose majorities appear as
above, are elected.
The official return from the couuty portion of
the 3d district is not received, but it is not ex
pected to vary frointhe returns as reported, which
give Vansant 3,870, and Preston 5,002 ; Vansant's
majority 814.
In the 1th district May has 0.790, and Walsh
0,441 j May's majority 349.
Upon the delegate ticket, tbe aggregate vole is
for tne Main-law candidates 11,277; for the dem
ocratic candidates 10,237; Maine-law majority
1,040. By a comparison of the democratic dele
gate vote, with that given for Ligon, we find that
the latter received 2,049 votes more than the
former; in other words 2^019 persons voted for
Ligou who did not vote for the democratic dele
gates. This fact, with the large vote given to the
Maine-law candidates, induces the l>elief that the
larger portion, if not the whole of this defective
democratic vote was given to the Maine-law can
didates. This 2,049 is, therefore, the democratic
strength of tbe Maine-law at present. Allowing
the same from the whig party, the Maine-law vote
appears to be 5,298 in the city. Had a whig ticket
been run, however, it is reasonable to suppose
that some few,at-least, of the democrats who voted
the Maine-law ticket, would have adhered to their
party nominations.
Tne vote for Krebs, for judgu of the circuit
court, is 17,112: no opposition.
For sheriff, tne vote stands lor Hindes, Main
law whig, 11,568; Hellen, democrat, 10,295; Bos
ley, independent, 4,579; liiude's majority over
Hellen is 1,273.
For clerk of the circuit court, Turner, 12,013;
Maguire 0,807. Turner's majority, 5,800.
For surveyor, Chitfelle, dein., 11,190; Bouldin,

Tbe Sad Consequences of Carelessness*?
As tbe passenger train of cars between Wilming
ton and Charleston, going south, approached with
in about eight miles of the Camden junction, one
morning last week, ? man with a child in his arms
came rushing through the rear car, shouting
" save yourselves, the cars are on fire!" The peo
ple jumped up half frantic and crowded for the
door at the back end of the car." It appears that a
campbene lamp that had beeu leA burning, ex
ploded and set fire to one of the ears, which was
extinguished with a bucket of water without stop
ping the train. The alarm was soon over and no
body appeared to be hurt. But the serious part
of the aceident is yet to be told. Among the pas
sengers in the car when the alarm was sounded,
were Madame Le Vert and daughter, of Mobile,
and her faithful slave " Betsy," whom Miss Bremer
has made one of the heroines of her " Homes in
the New World."
On resuming their seats, " Betsy" was missing.
The conductor was sent for and requested by the
passengers to reverse the engine and go back a
mile or two to look for the poor slave who had
probably leaped from the car when the alarm was
sounded. This he refused to do, giving as n rea
son that he would be too late to connect at the
Camden junction. He was then offered one thou
sand dollars to comply with the humane request
of the passengers. This also he refused. On ar
riving at the station a gentleman promptly char
tered an engine and returned to tne spot where
the alurm occurred; and there he found the poor
woman lying beside the track, in a state of insen
sibility, with her body so bruised and swollen that
the physician could not decide whether her boneK
were broken or dislocated. At the time the letter
was written that we have just received from Au
gusta, her recovery was considered extremely
doubtful. It strikes us that there is great blame
to be attached to the conductor for his apparent
indifference to the life of tbe poor slave; and we
take it for granted we shall hear of some indig
nant proceedings on the part of the passengers in
relation to his inhuman conduct.?'iV. Y. Mirror.
Anniversary of Perry's Victory.?We make
the following interesting extracts from the oration
of Mr. Calvert, delivered at Newport on the occa
sion of the celebration of the fortieth anniversary
of Perry's victory on Lake Erie:
The work Captain Perry had to do was, first
to create a fleet, and then with that fleet to beat
the British fleet?work enough for a young man
of twenty-seven. The American fleet was still
growing on the shore of the lake. Little had been
done; of the materials and stores needed, scarcely
any had been provided. Not half the mechanics
had arrived. Not a cannon was yet on the ground,
nor iron, nor cordage, nor canvas. Everything
required to equip and arm a fleet had to be brought
long distauce? over bad roads. There was not
even a cartridge in the place for defence of the
ship-yards. Against obstacles and difficulties,
against delays and disappointments, through cha
grins and mortifications, Captain Perry worked on
with such rapid and intelligent energy, that by the
24th of May all his vessels were launched, two
twenty-gun brigs and three gun-boats.
As an example of the zeal and courage which
animated all the fleets the following anecdote is
told:
Captain Perry now made a final inspection of
his ship. Coming to some men who had been in
the Constitution, he said to them: "Well, boys,
are you ready ?" " AH ready, your honor."' But
1 need say nothing to you," nc added; "you know
how to beat those fellows." Recognizing some of
his townsmen, he exclaimed, "Ah! here are the
Newport boys; they'll do their duty, I warrant."
Then, taking from his state room a large flag, he
mounted on a gun, and calling his crew about him,
he addressed them:." My brave lads, on this flag
are the dying words of Captain Lawrence! Shall
I hoist itf' " Ay! ay! sir." And in a moment, from
the mast head of the Lawrence floated the flag,
on which, in large letters, as the battle cry of the
day, were inscribed tlie words,?"Don't give up
the ship."
As the crews of the others caught sight of them,
they sent up an enthusiastic shout. And the sick
below lesrning the csuse of the ?hout. many of
them came up on deck to offer their feeble ser
vices ; such life is there in the dying words of a
hero. To one of these, on board the Lawrence,
Mr. Taylor said, "Go below, Mays, you are too
weak to be here." "1 can do something, sir."
"What can you doi" 1 can sound the pump, sir,
and let a strong man go to the guns." He sat
down by the pump, and sent the strong man to the
guns; when the fight was ended, there he was
found, with a ball through his heart. He was
from Newport; his name. Wilson Mays."
. The Tragedy at Loulavllle^?Professor But
ler, principal of the high school, at Louisville, was
shot by Matthew F.Ward, oldest sou of R. J.
Ward, on Wednesday morning last, and died that
night. The Courier says of the lamentable trans
action :
?' He went to the high school accompanied by
two of his brothers, Robert Ward, a youth of six
teen. and William Ward, a smaller boy, and called
for Mr. Wm.'H. O. Butler, one of the teachers. A
few words passed between them, when Mr. Ward
pulled out a pistol and shot Mr. Butler down. The
ball penetrated his left breast, over the heart, and
he fell to the floor, exclaiming, in his agony,4 I
am killed?oh, my poor wife and child!' Ward
then dropped his pistol, and. accompanied by his
brother, retreated from the school-room.
" Mr. Butler was able to rise from the floor, and
left the room, assisted by some boys: but, when in
the sweet, he fell again, and was carried home.
The ball could not be extracted, and he bled in
wardly. Mr. Butler had corrected William Ward,
one of his pupils, the day previous, for telling a
falsehood, which led to the tragic affair.
" Robert Ward, who accompanied his brother,
drew a bowie-knife, and when Professor StUrfUS,
the other teacher in the school, advanced to the
assistance of Mr. Butler, he made such demonstra
tions that the professor retreated and made his
escape out of a window. The scholars in the
Hchool-room were also scattered in all directions
by the display of such warlike instruments in their
midst.
Mr. M. F. Ward and Robert J. Ward, jr., were
promptly arrested and lodged in jail; and as the
affair will undergo a judicial investigation, we for
bear narrating the particulars.
'? Mr. Butler was one of the best and most in
offensive men in tbe world, and we can appreciate
the anguish of his friends at bis being so untimely
cnt off, and in such a manner. The affair js gen
erally regarded as of a most atrocious and unpro
voked character, and, when it became known, the
deepest indignatiou prevailed fhroughout the city.
The Ward family is one of the wealthiest and most
prominent in Kentucky."
The Counterfeiter's Arrest?-The Cleveland
Herald, gives the following particular* respecting
the arrest of Baxter at FraolcUn Mills:
A year since the police of Cincinnati and Cov
ington obtained a clue to an organized gang ol
counterfeiters; and six weeks since, a mau was
arrested at Covington, in whose possession wa?
found $1,000 in counterfoil uioney. Through him
further particulars in regard to the gaug were as
certained. It con*i*is ol several hundred persons
some ol whom occupy respectable positions in
society.
The policemen came to Cleveland, took rooms
at the New England, and one of their number
went to Franklin Mills to purchase counterfeit
money ol Baxter. He succeeded in buyimr to the
amount ol $175. Baxter's arrest, as narrated yes
terday, soon followed.
Baxter was arrested at Covington, Ky., about a
year *?tce, having in his possession $80,000 of
counterfeit money. His bail was fixed at $'i,000.
but afterwards U was reduced to $100, the money
deposited, and Baxter disappeared.
On Tuesday, the same officers arrested Josiali
Davis, teller of the Forest City bank, who has
since been discharged on bail. The officers pub
lished a card m which they state they sus
pected Davis, from information gained in Coving
ton and Cincinnati, and accordingly arrested him
lor being concerned with a gang oi counterfeiters,
and took from him a small amount of counterfeit
money. At the request of the president and
cashier of the bank they examined the vault, and
found a small private package marked Josiah
Davis, containing time drafts and notes, and a lew
dollars broken bank money. It is found Davis
had been in the habit of dealing in broken bank
bills, unknown to the president and cashier, who
would not have suffered it had they known it.

Great Traveling and Telegraphic Scheme.
?Among other startjing announcements, that ol
communication between England and any part ol
India in ten day*, has been made. It seems that
the railway from Ostend to Trieste, a length of one
thousand five hundred miles, will be completed
within twelve months from this time. Letters
parcels and passengers will then occupy but little
more than two days from the shores of the channel
to those ol the Adriatic,* four days will take them
thence to Egypt, and by aid of the railway from
Alexandria to Cairo, which is now rapidly advanc
ing, they will be within thirty-six hours afloat on
the Red sea, and in twelve days afterwards be
anded safely in Bombay, within three weeks ol
leaving London. Within this date, the electric
telegraph, now preparing to be laid across the
Mediterranean, will have reached Suez, and four
thousand miles of wire,which have already reached
Calcutta, will connect every great town in India
with the port of Bombay, so that before the year
ltwo expires, London will have communication bv
electric telegraph in ten or eleven days' time with
every part of India, and by steamer and rail in
twenty-one days with Bombay.
The advices from Italy also state that the G-tor
ztue di Kama of the 4th, announces that the elec
tric telegraph, which already extends from Rome
to uologna and Modena, is to be continued to Ter
raciua. there to meet the Neapolitan wires; so that
Maples, Rome, Bologna, and Modena will form but
one uninterrupted line.?Bait. Hun.
?* Mrs. Gaines.?We have been in
?.Kiend^fx^r8: Myra Gaine"' *'??lbiR
lady passed through Wilmington a few days since
and told her while here, that an old gentleman
who has for a long time resided in the West In
dies, waited upon her (Mrs. Gaines) some time
since, and said he was present when her mother i
was duly married to her father, Daniel Clark, of
which fact he was ready to bear testimony. The
lack ol satisfactory proof of this fact was the sole
cause of her former defeats in hereflorts to recov
er her estate ; and that upon the existence of this
evidence being made to the defendant in a suit
now pending in the Louisiana courts, he bccame
fully satisfied of her right to recover, and therefore
offered to purchase the property at a fair equiva
lent, which she has accepted, since which trans
action Mrs. Games says she has compromised
with nearly all the possessors of her father's lands
for a very large sum of money in the aggregate
the payment ol which will soon be secured to her!
If our information is correct, of which we have no
reason to doubt, Mrs. Gaines, after a series of dis
heartening defeats, will at last obtain her patrimo
nial estates as the sole heir of her father, and i
hereafter be classed among the millionaires of
America.? Wilmington (Dei.) Gazette.
Suicide?The Pittsburgh Pout of Saturday
?ays: \esterday morning Richard M. Duncan, a
young man who has been for some time past em
ployed as clerk in the office of the engineer of the
Ohio and Pennsylvania railroad, was found dead
in his room in the Emmet Hotel, in Alleghany.
The deceased had been boarding there with his
wife and child, since last Tuesday. He had been
in the habit of drinking freely of late, and it is
supposed that he had become deranged in conse
quence.
1 ?n Thursday, he requested Mrs. Sweeney, the
landlady of the Emmet hotel, to send out and pur
chase some laudanum for him, but she refused
On the same evening he went out himself and
purchased some. His wife observed him lying
upon the carpet in his room about midnight, but
did not think anything about the matter, as he had
been in the habit of doing so for some time past.
She went to bed, and when she awoke in the morn
ing he was still there. She immediately summoned
the lady and the boarders, and Dr. Elliott was
called in, but it was too late," as he had breathed
his last. An empty vial, which had contained
laudanum, was found by his side. The deceased
had formerly resided in Baltimore, where his father
was a clergyman.
The State Fair?The executive committee of
the State Agricultural Society held a meeting at
their office in llarrisburg last week, when it was
ascertained that the receipts at the exhibition held
in this city amounted to $17,500?deducting $8,000
paid in premiums and other expenses, a balance
will lie left of $4,000, which, added to the appro
priation ol $ii,000 by the State, aud the sum in the
Treasuij and invested in stocks, will reach the
sum of $15,000. It is contemplated by the officers
of the society to use this sum for the purpose of
establishing an agricultural school, and applica
tion will be made to the legislature lor an act of
incorporation for the purpose. It is believed by
the officers of the society that an institution of
this kind, established upon a proper basis, could
be sustained by the resources of the society.

Death of Rahello.
Almost every person who visited the Connecti
cut Stale prison during the past seventeen years
knows something of Rabello, the maniac. He was
confined for murdering a boy, and was so furious
most of the time that the directors of the Retreat
for the Insan) decided ffcat he could not be better
provided for than he was in the prison, though the
legislature of the State had passed a resolution
authorizing his removal to the retreat, if the offi
cers should deem such a step more conducive to
his health or comfort, lie was kept in a cell on
the east side of the prison yard, and visitors could
see him through the gates, and hear him grate his
teeth and rave in madness in his native tongue.
When he was more calm, he was permitted to
walk in the prison yard; on these occasions his
carriage was proud, his step haughty, and his per
son beautifully erect; but roost of the time he was
a raving maniac. He was well educated, but there
is a mystery connected with his history.
Agostinho Rabello was a Portuguese, born in
the inland of Madeira, about the year 1803. For
several years he was a clerk at that place in the
house of an English wine merchant. Subequently
he went to Brazil, and for five years he took charge
of an English library. He thea returned to Ma
deira, aud was put on board of a vessel and sent
to the United States. He landed at Philadelphia,
an insane?iian. He strolled through the country,
usually lingering about and sleeping in graveyards,
and living upon charity. He appeared willing to
work for a living, and in March, 1635, he was
taken into the family of Mr. Beers Beardsley, of
New Preston, in Litchfield county.
On the 27th of April, Ferris Beardsley, an only
son. aged 12 years; went into the yard early in the
morning to get some firewood. He carried au
axe. Rabello followed him, took the axe away,
and at once cut his head open, killing him imme
diately. He cut off one of the boy's legs, and
otherwise mutilated his person. Rabello then
went into the house, took up a small bundle of
clothes, and started ofl. He was shortly after ar
rested, as he yas washing the blood of the mur
dered boy from his hands and clothes at a brook
by the roadside. He acknowledged the murder,
and said that he killed the boy for treading on his
toes the previous evening, and that he had a right
to kill him for that insult.
He was tried lor murder before Judges Waite
and Williams, at Litchfield, in August, 1835. The
evidence taken mostly related to his sanity?the
murder being udmitted. It appeared by the evi
dence of a number of witnesses, that he was in
the habit of lingering about graveyards, often
sleepingjjin them, even in drenching rains ; that he
often acted as if in a terrible passion, declaring
that everybody was ugainst him ; that "his frieuds
were enemiesthat ne had fallen out with his
arents and brotherg-'and sisters in Madeira; that
e would rather die than return there ; that he
seemed to be haunted with the idea that he was
constantly insulted and injured, aud that childreu
were sent to insult him. lie had a peculiar notion
about his toes, and if any one bit them or touched
his foot, he would fly into a great passion. As a
test, after his arrest, a physician purposely trod on
his toe, as if by accident, when he went into a furi
ous passion, his pulse increasing thirty beats in a
minute, lie declared " you did not hurt my foot,
but you did my feelings.'
Tnejury brought in a verdict of not guilty of
murder, on account of his insanity, and the court
ordered him to be coAfined, to prevent his injuring
others, as it appeared that he had previously at
tempted to kill a man with an axe, who accident
ally rolled a stone against his foot. He was placed
in the State prison, where lie has remained for sev
eral years a wild maniac. For several years he has
failed in strength, and became emaciated. Some
months since his limbs began to swell, and dropsy
set in. He died in the prison hospital, on the morn
ing of the 30th ult., aged about fifty years. As he
approached final dissolution, he appeared to be
more rational, and conversed like u sane man. He
declarred that lie wanted to die?that he had no
thing to live lor, and hoped to find rest to his
troubled spirit beyond the grave. He said that no
one could estimate the troubles and the sufferings
that he had passed through, arid alluded particu
larly to severe sharp pains that had frequently
darted from his bowels upward, reaching his back
and head. He seemed to be worn out, and died
in comparative ease.?Hartford Times. '

United States.
The French and British consuls protested to the
king against such an act, and the American com
missioners had replied in a firm and dignified man
ner. This movement has caused much excite
ment throughout the islands.
Arrested.?Our readers will rememl*er that we
stated on Saturday morning a mysterious affair
had taken place, in which an unknown muu was
knocked down while quietly walking along Coates
street, near Coates alley. Since then the wounded
man has been discovered. His name is Louis
Fearrer. He resided at 174 Vine street. It ap
pears that Fearrer was passing down Fourth
street with two friends, when Emory, without the
slightest provocation, made an attack on the in
offensive Germans. He was armed with a heavy
club, about four leet long, with which, it is alleged,
he struck one of the friends of Fearrer a tremen
dous blow on the back. He then attacked the lat
ter, and knocked several teeth out, broke his nose,
and otherwise abuaed him in a shocking manner.
While the officer was pursuing Emory, the Ger
mans made their way home. Emory wan on Sat
urday held by Mayor'Howel! in $t,000 to answer
the assault on Fearrer, who was at that time un
known, and in 6500 additional for beating a Ger
man, named Frederick Rower, at an earlier hour
in the evening. This last assault, it is also al
leged, was without provocation.?Phil. Sun.
The Recent Bank Failures, &c.?The New
York Commercial of yesterday evening, says :
We mention upon official authority that the Me
tropolitan Bank continues to receive the notes of
the Bank of Oswego upon the same terms at which
it receives the notes of the other New York banks.
The Tribune says: " Mr. Dwight, we, under
stand, owes the bank of Oswego $130,000, which,
should it prove a total loss, (of which there is no
possible chance,) would still leave them $100,000
ot their $200,000 of capital untouched. Mr. Hew
ett, one of the wealthiest citizens of Oswego, has
guaranteed the deposits and has assumed the tem
porary management of the bank."
The suspension of the Patchin Bank of Buffalo,
now known to have occurred to-day, will pro
duce, we think, general surprise, for Mr. Patchio,
its owner, in addition to the reputation of a skilful
and successful banker, has been always under
stood to possess a large estate not involved in his
bankiug operations. This unexpected result has
been brought about, it is said, by the large accom
modations made by the bank in nid of the Buffalo
and New York City Railroad Company, of which
Mr. Patchin is president and financial manager,
and whose bonds, owing to the stringent state of
the money market, are for the present totally un
available. But the road, which is the shortest
and perhaps the most important connexion of the
Erie road with the lakes, is now entirely com
pleted, thoroughly equipped, and doing a remuner
ating business.
There seems little reason for doubting its ability
soon to meet its engagements, and protecting the
bank from ultimate loss.
The Bank being an association under the gene
ral banking law. has secured its bills with the su
perintendent of the banking department, and the
characters of the securities are such as fully tp
protect the bill holder*. Mr. Patchin'a private
estate, in connection with the general asseiu of
the bank, will doubtless be ample for the protec
1 tion of its creditors.
The securities of the bank, deposited with the
superintendent of the banking department, accord
ing to the last annual report, were:
Bonds und mortgages $50,989
New York Stale 4J per cents If),000
Do. f> do 12,100
U (tiled Slates 5 do. ....... ZVJOO
Cash in deposit 10,021
Total $417,510
To protect a circulation of $115,679.
The failure of Mr. Lucius H. Pratt, a large for
warding merchant at Butlalo, is mentioned in a
telegraphic despatch. His liabilities nre said to
amount to two hundred thousand dollars.
The bunk of Masillon. Ohio, has stopped pay
ment, through involvements caused by the tail
of Mr. 'Henry Dwight, jr., of this city. This
bank is one of those chartered under the old
system, differing altogether from the State bank
and branches and independent banks of Ohio, all
the uotes of which nre secured by the highest
grade of stocks, deposited with the Stale authori
ties at Columbus.
