THE PENNSYLVANIA ELECTION.
No Philadelphia papers were received b yesterday’s mail. The passengers in the steam boat arrived at Baltimore, however, brough several of the morning papers, from two c which we copy the following accounts of th election, and the riots which followed it, attend with, bloodshed and destruction of life am operty. Some of the passengers in the steam boat report that as many as eight lives wen lost in the riot: yrom the Philadelphia Herald, Oct. 15. Philadelphia City Ticket—Congress.

Prom the Philadelphia Inquirer, Oct. 15. Whig Victory in Philadelphia.—The gene ral election took place throughout the State ol Pennsylvania yesterday. The Whips hurt srhiered a glorious victory in the city—have elected their whole ticket by an average majori tv of eighteen hundred votes. When it is ie ineniheied that last year the Whig majority was less than two hundred votes, the value of the result may be correctly estimated. The Cointy.—We have not the complete re turns from the county’, but sufficient to rendet it certain that both Ash and Sutherland (Jack son) have been elected to Congre s. Sutherland and Ash (the Jackson candi dates) are elected by 12 or 1400 majority each The Jackson triumph in the 2d and 3d Con gressional District is complete. SCENES UK THE INIUHI. We regret to be compelled to state that scene? of the most alarming character occurred ir Moyamensmg last night, after the polls were closed. Several persons were shot—eighteen itissaiJ. and we fear more than one life lost.— A person who was on the ground states that he saw one fireman carried off apparently dead, and a number of other individuals borne from theground severely injured. It is impossible for u>at this time to give a correct account nl the origin of the affray, so contradictory are the reports that have reached us. Neither wil we attempt at this time, with the public mind al ready inflamed, and the passions of hundreds greatly excited, to cast censure upon either par tv. the object of all good citizens should be tc allay rather than exasperate the excitement—tc restore order and decorum, and then to inves UMte all the circumstances and punish the guil tv. Several houses were burnt to the ground, the furniture scattered through the streets, and bro into fragments. At one time there c«»ul»J h-’t have been le>s than five thousand persons ir the immediate vicinity. The events we havr thus hastily recorded, occurred immediately in ' vtt i>t th ■ Moyameiising (’ommissioners’ Hall place where the election w as held.
