An Alexandrian. Alexandria. Srpt. 11. 1834. Election Anecdote.—It is known to most of our readers, that Moore, in his recent contest against principles and Letcher, in Kentucky, contrived to obtain about 500 illegal votes for himself— but, with all that, he is beaten. We have heard an anecdote relative to the election, which we think worth repeating. Nearly three hundred Jackson men of Wash ington County, anxious to lend a hand to i Moore, though they did not belong to his dis | trict, took horse and carriage and rode over to Mercer county, in Moore and Letcher’s district, fording a creek, at that time nearly dry. While they were busy voting, us they could get an op portunity, for Moore, there came up a heavy tempest, and the rain fell in torrents. The con sequence was, that the stream which they had forded in the morning, was swollen so as to be come an impassable torrent, and the migrating voters were compelled to abide in it i i the next day, when, on reaching their own voting pre cinct. they found the poll closed, and u Whig elected by a small majority, which one quarter of their number would have turned the other way. This was an unprofitable expedition. U. S. Gaz. Enormous Medical Fees —We take the fol lowing paragraphs fiotn the New Yoik Trans cript. of Monday last. The statements are al most incredible. “ We have heard, within a few days, of seve ral instances of medical charges so enormous, that we think they ought to be exposed to the knowledge uml reprobation of the public. One of these is that of a practitioner in Brooklyn, who brought in his bill for about seven months attendance on a gentleman lately deceased, to the enormous amount ol three thousand Jire hun di ed dollars —being at the rate of nearly secen dnlldrs tier day. The executor, or administra tor. very justly refused to pay it; and the matter, we understand, has been left to the decision of arbitrators. The attendance of the physician, it is said, was arduous, consisting of three or four visits in a day. Allowing this to be the case, five dollars would no doubt have been am ple pay for each day’s attendance. But the pa tient was dead, and the doctor seems to have thought he could not well take too large a slice out of what was left to Ins heirs. How the ar bitrators will decide, remains to be seen. Another case of enormous charging occur red in this city. It was levied likewise against the effects of the dead—namely, those of an excellent and most lamented gentleman from the interior of the state, who died hereof the Cholera in 1932. The charge for ten days at tendance was two hundred dollars. It was dis puted. and left to arbitrators. Some half do zen of physicians were appointed to decide It had better have been left to the plaintiff - for, as it turned out, a majority of the judges w ere in the habit of charging still higher than lie. Their views, however, were various. One’s consci ence chalked as high as $350; another’s was content with 100; and the result was a sort of compromise, which gave the plaintiff hco hun dred uml ten dollars, instead of the two hun dred claimed by him!!” Mtine.—The Election of Governor, Senators, Representatives, and Members of Congress, takes place in Maine this day; and from all we have been able t» gather, in conversations held with gentlemen from thatstate, of different poli tical sentiments, we believe the following among other results will take place: In the first placa, we have come to the conclusion that the lar gest vote ever cast in the State will be giv en on this occasion;—that Mr. Dunlap, the can didate ofthe administration party, will he elect ed Governor, by about 1000 or 1500 majority over both the other candidates;—that there w ill be many changes in the Senatorial districts and in the House of Representatives, favorable to the VY’hig cause, but not enough to alter the com plexion of the Legislature, a majority of which will continue to be decided friends of tin* Pre si lent —that there will be one or more changes m the Congressional districts, and that Mr. Churchill, the Whig, condidate, has quite as good a prospect in Cumberland as Mr. Smith, if not a better one. Ofcourse there cannot beany thing like certainty about an affair of this kind; but we shall not be disappointed to hear of the election of Mr. Dunlaphy the people—and of changes in the Legislature and in one or two of the Congressional districts friendly to the V\ big party. Nous Perrons. Toniot row weshall hear from Cumberland, where there have been nu merous changes since last year, especially in Portland, Brunswick and Freeport. In the for mer place, it is believed there have been as ma ny as six or seven hundred. On the seaboard the cause of the Whigs has been strengthened, while in the interior, among the farmers, the ad ministration has gained friends. This we be lieve to be a true statement of the case. Boston Gaz. , — Michigan—The neglect of the application of Michigan to be admitted into the Union, as a State, «t the last session of Congress, has dissa tisfied the people there. They seem earnestly fixed on becoming a State at the earliest day. For this object, they have taken measuress for ascertaining how far they are entitled to claim the oenefit of the ordinance, and set up f *r themselves. A proclamation has been issued hy the acting Governor, for an extra session of the Legislative Council, to be held on the 1st | of September. The principal purpose is, so their ' papers inform ns, to cause a census of the popu lation to be taken, and if it exceeds 60,000 to exercise their right under the U States consti tution of framing a constitution for themselves, electin'* Senators and Representatives, and de manding admission as a right. If refused ad mission, according to the doctrines maintained on the Missouri question, they will be a sover ign State, though notin the Union. Another purpose for which the session is con voked is to take measures for extending juris diction over the Dubuque mines, part of the country west of the Mississippi, whose irregular political condition has been frequently noticed.

In this Institution will be taught, besides the usual branches, the Latin, 1 Greek, and French Languages, the Mathema tics, Natural Philosophy, Drawing, xc. The Classical Department will be under the special care of P. J. McLacchlin, a gentleman of high literary attainments, ol unexceptionable moral character, and who has had considerable experience in the instruction of youth. In this Institution the Explanatory Mode of Instruction is pursued; which is based upon the obvious principle, that abstract terms and defi nitions are less intelligible and pleasing to chil dren than real objects; and that the instruction which is given entirely in words, can never be so interesting and profitable, as that which is communicated with the aid of visible and tangi ble tilings. By thus explaining and illustrating the subjects of study before the students en ter upon them, they are well undeistood, and their progress is thereby facilitated and much | increased. The Proprietor is decidedly of the opinion that youth are more easily led than driven in the paths of science, and that order, in general, is more effectually secured by a system of mo ral. than physical discipline This Institution continues to be well support ed, is now in a flourishing condition, and ar rangements have been made for the accommo dation of an additional number of students. Tiie Proprietor hopes that no exertions on his part, or on that of his assistants, will be neglect ed, that will tend to the moral and intellectual improvement of his students. Alexandria.
