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

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

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

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.

GOV. QUIT.HAN'S PliOCLAMATION IN MlS-

We sre extremely glad that his Excelled

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.

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.

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.

S. Wise, of St. Louis, Mo., discovered the
existence of an adulterous intercourse be
tween his wife and Thos. B. Hart. Hereup.

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

Heaven, unseen and unfelt, save in the
freshness and beauty ibey contribute to
produce.

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

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

one occasion ihe true character of his en

.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

'ANARCHY AT SACRAMENTO.
i
Sjichamf.nto, August 10, 1950. 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.
