Baltimore, Oct. 5. Our Stale election is over, and the whigs have been defeated. Mr. Lowe, tho demo cratic candidate, is elected by a majority id 1551 in the State. All the counties have been houril from officially and iinolHcin'ly , Tho entiro vote, according to these returns, is Lowe 27,597, Clark 20,040. Tho official figures cannot differ much from Ihe above. The whigs feel a good dnal chagrined, in as mjch as they hnd reason to hope for suc cess. Thero were local causes, however, which operated powerfully against ihein. Mr. Clark (whether true or not) wos sup. posed to be connected with a dynasty here known as the Court House Clique. Ihi hod become unpopular, ond many of the whigs thinking justly too it had ruled long enough, lent their inlluence to the democratic side. Out of the seven State Senators, the whigs have elected five, thus securing them a decjded majority in this body for some years to como. Cor. Char Courier. Hints to Beaux. To please tho old folks while you court the daughter, agree with the father in politics, and keep the mother in snulF. To please the brother, loud him your rifle and buy him a dog. To please her sister, buy her a dress. Tt please your dulcinea, keep her in jewelry and call her an 'angel." To please your clf, be a foul. A suit has just been decided by the Cir cuit Court in New York in which the New Jersey Railroad Company have been mulcted in tho suns of 1,000 in consequence of oni of their can crushing the foot of a lady at the depot in Jersej City in August, 1847. Woitderf will never cease," at the old maid slid alter bidding her first beau good night." She went straight to bed and dreamed about little frocks, tiny shoes, and all that sort of thing. The only people that hope, are the poor. The rich live in fear. Reduce a man to one pair of breeches, and his view of futuri ty will be as buoyant as a cork. Make a millionaire of him, and he will worry from year end to year end. Every gale of wind not only sinks his vessels, but bis spirits, and the same conflagration that only breaks up the nap of the Shirtless loafer, Juls the mind of Croesus, the rich man, with fear and trembling for the slock he owns in some iosuiance company. A paper published among the "Tutch men," in Pennsylvania, says that Ihore is a great excitement in New York, in conse quence of the arrival of a foreigner, named Johnny Lind, who sings most beautifully. If you have anything to do, do it; bjt if you bavn't anything to do, for Heaven's take keep out of mischief. FROM WASHINGTON. Washington, Oct. 5, 1350. There is much agitation at the North, on the suiject of the fugitive slave act, which has so fur been successfully executed. The question is tu be tested whether the law can be executed or not. Mr. Seward, Mr. Win i drop, and others declared, when it was under consideration, that it could not be executed. So far, the rnas of the people have sustained the law, and it is believed that it is fully in accordance with public sentiment. It will be some time before llio department of the Interior will bo able to issue any warrants or ccilificotes under the land bounty act. The entry ledgers must be pre pared, Ihconny rolls copied, and certificates made ready. It will bo about two months before certificates con be issued. To effect a location and procure a patent will take about eight mouths more, and perhaps a longer lime. Until the patent is issued, the warranter! can mak! no disposition of his warrant. On account of this delay, Ihe new act will not much interfere with the Mexican land warrants. There aro but twelve or fifteen thousand on hand, nnd they will not fall below QViO. At tho land offices they are equivalent to g'."00 in co-h, and it is probable they will all be located within a year. After the patents are issued, under the now act, they will rapidly fall. Those first obla:iicd will sell has'. When the market is well glutted, they will fall to twenty or tinny dollars, and be engrossed by capitalists. Col. Fremont' letter in tho Baltimore Sml, shows ll.nl no amicable relations exist between li'in nnd Mr. Footo, Col. Fremont considers tho difficulty growing out tf the debate on thn California bill, as re-opened. Me alleges that the publications of Air, Gwin were dictated hy .Mr. Foote, and thai they arc false state neiits. It is evident that Ihe feud will be continued. I doub' very much whether tho matter after its ad justment was stirred up again at Mr. Footu's instance, but there are always good naturcd friends enough to do that for any man, GOV. QUIT.HAN'S PliOCLAMATION IN MlS- sissirri. The Vickhurg Whig says : We sre extremely glad that his Excelled cy has been relieved, tl gh, in bit quj-c serious, we do not helipve nine-tenths of the people of the Slate will look with any other feeling than contemptuous regret upon the result of tho travnil. The proclamation merely shows Hie strength of wish the Gov, ernor has to keep himself notoriously ''he. lore the people," and does no mora express their will or desire than did the last ukase of Nicholas or the last agonizing buzz of tho latest defunct humbug of Ihe limes. Ol this the friends of the compromise' every where limy rest assured. Quantities of arms and ammunition have passed through Drownsville, Texas, on tho way up the Rio Grando in Mexico, and a serious dist'irbonco is expected, whether Almonte or Arista succeeds in the prist dential election. A speculator in Paris has just arranged the departure of two hundred women for California, and those houris of the harem of Paris, Kouen, Lyons, and Havre, weie a- boul to sail fur thn gold country. Be it un derstood that these beauties are not diam onds of the first water; but no matter, they leave France with the strong resolution I" be good girls. Major Noah laughs at the idea of calling Ihe editorial class a fraternity." He says, "It is truo that at a public dinner, or a phi lanthropic mi cling, they shake hands and say civil things to each other; but this is evidently all hyrucrisy, for the next dsy they vill fall to reviling each other in print with as much vindictiveness as ever. We refer more particularly to political editors the neutrals, or independents, get along a little better, and yet even these, when they have a good opportunity to po!;e their fing ers in each others eyes, seldom neglect it. Acquitted. Some lime since, Mr. Jno S. Wise, of St. Louis, Mo., discovered the existence of an adulterous intercourse be tween his wife and Thos. B. Hart. Hereup. on he killed the paramour at Palmyra, Mo. For this act he has recently undergone a trial and been acquitted amid the cheers of a large assemblage. It is not in a splendid government sup ported by powerful monopolies and aristo cratical establishments that the people will find happiness or their liberties protection, but in a plain system, void of all pomp, protecting all and granting favors to none dispensing its blessings likt the dews of Heaven, unseen and unfelt, save in the freshness and beauty ibey contribute to produce. -"An old lady of Pennsylvania had an unac countable aversion to rye, and never could eat it in any form, "till of late ihey got" he said, "to making it into whiskey, and I find I can, now and then, worry down a little."

The Cincinnati Commercial of the 2nd inst. relates the following: Strange Revelation A colored woman, living on New street, having separated from her husband recently, has revealed s vrral singular incidents in relation to his mode of livelihood. She states, that relinquishing tho occupation of a cook, ho took sumo time ago to fortune telling, and that a number of while women were in the habit of resorting to him to have their fortunes told several of these having been seduced by him dur ng these interviews, whijli were generally in a small apartment, darkened. His wife break ing into ihe apartment, and discovering on one occasion ihe true character of his en gagements, is alleged to be the cause of Ihe .separation. She stales also that one man had been paying her husband $100 per month for certain directions in his mode ' business in other words fur instructions in charlatancy.

At 0 late hour yesterday oftern joii, thn Senator hailed the Gold Hunter in Suisun Bay, and the welcome response reached our ears: 'All right above every thing quiet in Sa cramento!" Judge of tho gloom that set. lied on every countenance, as the boat came to the Levee, when it was announced that another brave and generotishearled public officer hnd fallen beneath the murderous bill lets o'desperate outlaws. After the fune, ral of Mr. Assessor Woodland, yesterday aflermon, the Sheriff started with twenty men for the Five Mile House, to arrest any squatters ho might find there. A portion of tli? Sheriff's party were entirely unarmedi not knowing the purpose he had in view when they lelt the Fort. On thejr arrival nt the Five Mile House, no persons were found in arms, and thn parly proceeded on a quick gallop to the Pavillion. They had not ridden far, when they were informed that a parly of squatters had taken posses sion of a house a short d.stance beyond the Pavillion. After a short halt, the Sheriff divided his party into squads, under the command of Gen, Winn, Mr. Robinson, and himself. When the sheriff had reached the home, lit) ordered his parly to dismount, and invited them in a jocose manner to go and gel something to drink. Ho immedi aiely, with two or three others, entered the house while the rest were hitching their horses. In the room adjoining the bar, the squatters were waiting for an attack, anJu summons Irom the sheriff to them to lay down their arms, was answered by a volley from eight or ton muskets. Firing was kept up on both sides for a few mo ments. Tho Sheriff loft the house to look for the rest of his parly who were coming up, and was but a little distance from it, when a inn lift, loaded with buckshot, was dis charged by n tall man, supposed to be Al len, standing in tho inner door, and Slier. ifl'McKinncy fell, mortally wounded. He exclaimed two or three times, "I am killed!" walked a few steps and fell dead. Some of those who were present, say that the Sher iff was shot nt tho first lire of ihe squatters, as he entered the room. A.IUNI I'l'ter tho toll mnn iilint itjn t-bpritf, (I quote from the Transcript,) Dr. Baily, who was near, aimed his pistol at him and fired. The ball probably took effect, for ihe man dropped his gun nnd fell over. He, however, soon recovered himself. Previous to this, before many had got into the house, but after Ihe firing had commenced, ho fired from the bar-room window, and grazed ihe arm of Mr. Cromwell. Cromwell fired back j in return, and thinks that the bill must iiave taken effect. 'In the mcle, the squatters, who fired from Ihe bar, were shot dead. Capt. Rod ford wos severely wounded in the fore-arm-The bones were broken. Two were then brought out prisoners, and conveyed forth with to he Pavilion. After they reached ill'. Pavilion, two others were bruught in. We regret to learn that Capt. Hamn.ersley, after Iho firing commenced, was l' rown j from his hrsc. He was injured in Ihe back probably not severely. One of iho prisoners ! was then tukt 11 in a wagon to town, under guard. Parties pr( ceeded to town, to inform the citizens of ihe state of affairs. The 5rst re inforcement that reached the Pavilion from town, was a parly of ten men, led by Mr. Lundy. Tho second was a party of about twelve men, led by Mr. Tracy. Gen. Winn drew them up, and made a short speech to tdein." "The three remaining prisoners were placed in an omnibus, together with Capt, Radford and the remains of Sheriff McKin ney. A guard of horsemen were appointed to accompany the omnibus into town. 'I ha names of the prisoners who were in the omnibus were John Hughes, Jas. 11. Cullman, and Win, B. Ooiiiong. "The body of tho Sheriff was left at the fort, and the prisoners weie enveyed down J street, along Front, to the prison ship. "On the part of the authorities, Sheriff McKmney was killed, and Cap. Radford wounded, but not mortally. On tho part uf the squatters three were killed. One, prubably more, were wounded, and four were taken prisoners. Dr. Eriarly, Mr. Briarly, Mr. Milne, Mr. Cleal, Mr. Bruce and a German, (name unknown,) gave pvidene of distinguished bravery during the affray " Allen, who is supposed 10 have shot the Sheriff, has been a ringleader uf the squat. u-r, and is said to bn a most desperate old man. His wife, who has been sick for some lime, died in a bick room of tho same house where ihe fight took place, a lew hours af terward, a len nas not yei neen lounu. but traces of blood are observablo from the house to the river, a.id as Ihey are lost on the right bank, he is supposed 10 have been drowned in attempting to cross it.

HoRnrBLE Muiiukk at West Chester. The Philadelphia Ledger has ihn liillnw ing particulars relative to an awful murder that tccurred in the vicinity of West Ches ter, Pa., on Saturday morning : Some of the children belonging to the school at Rocky 1 1 i 1 1 , three miles aaove West Chester, on reaching iIip school. h it'se, found their teacher, Piu-be Sharpie?), lying at the door, weltering in her bluoJ, am! quite diad, Lyinr near her was I lie wad. ding used in loading Die gun, which, upon examination, was found tu b- a piece of the Saturdoy Evening Post.

He was committed to prison to wait a further examination. The deceased was an estimable young lady,ngeu about twenty eight, the daughter of Aaron Sharpie, She'll Do. The Dresden (Tenn.)
