Klvettou Day in Baltimore. Never was there a more exciting election our city than that of yesterday, and we < gret to say that in several of the wards i iere were riots as disgraceful as they were iinecessarv. The morning was tine, and at : i ie opening of the polls there was an evident imposition on the part of some co promote j isorder as soon as opportunity should offer, he first disorder occurred at the fifteenth ar»l polls, where there was considerable tirmishing, which was kept up at intervals j i iroughout the whole day, without, however, j 1 ay serious results. About two o’clock in the afternoon, a diffi- j ; iltv occurred at the sixth ward polls, which i ►r a time threatened to be of the most serious tiaracter. At an early h< ur a hand of per ms known as the Kmpire b lub, stationed i lemsclves at the polls and ruthlessly knock-' i down several persons who voted in opposi- j on to their views. < One of the assaults was made upon an < god man, who quietly deposited his vote 1 nd was about retiring when he was cut cross the forehead with a knife, inflicting a evere wound. lie was then knocked down nd severely kicked in the face by a ruffian, ’here being danger in approaching the polls, he state of affairs was communicated to the ; Eighteenth ward, and immediately a deputa ion was sent to the ward where the difficulty xisted. Thev were met in fayette street, iear Kxeter, w hen one of tlie most terrible ►attics known in the annals of our city took dace. Pistols, stones, and clubs were tree- i v used, and we hear that one man was shot , hrough the head. All the houses in the ; leighborhood were at once closed, ami the , ight was carried through Kxeter t«» l»a»ti-i imre street, when the same precaution of ■ ilosin^ the houses was observed, for a time ; he firing ot pistols was incessant, hut the K»lice appeared, and after using the most ] trenuons efforts succeeded in restoring or [er. not. however, until the combatants from he Sixth ward agreed to leave the ground. There was also adiffieulty in the eighteenth vard, but the American party was so strong hat it was ot short duration. A rencountre • »ok place between -John Ploughman, a police- j nan and David Brothertuu, in which the for- • ner was shot through the head. He was iui- 1 nediatelv attended to and it is said the wound ; s not of a serious character. I About f> o’clock in the afternoon the ninth ; vard poll was the scene of a disgraceful fracas | )ut in this instance the combatants were all j if the same political faith, and to keep going , he excitement they entered into a free fight' n which one poor unlucky wight was terri dy beat. In this case liquor more than po ities was the moving cause <d disorder. There was a difficulty in the fourteenth j vard but several of the parties were arrested i ind lodged in the station house which at once 1 ;ut a stop to the disorder. The whole city at night was in the most i jproarious condition, and the streets were nade hideous with the yells of the victors, while the vanquished quietly retired to their tomes. Bonfires were to be seen in every i lirection. and rockets sped high in the air in j iionor of the victory. The greatest anxiety was manifested for the result, and a large :rowd gathered in front of the Clipper office, to await the returns from the several wards, upon the announcement ot nearly all of which there was a general hurrah and firing of pis tols, the greatest enthusiasm prevailing througout the whole time. After the returns , were all in. the throng formed into procession and inarched to Temperance Hall, where Mr. Hiuks was waiting to receive them. Hcj thanked them for the honor they had confer red on him, but declined to address the mul-; titude. The party would have proceeded to i the residence ot Mr. 11. but family affliction rendered it necessary that he should meet them elsewhere. When the procession was passing the corner of Hay and Baltimore streets, several shots were fired at it, hut the assailants at once tied, aud there was no iur ther difficulty. j Smaller parties waited <>n the successful candidate for the City Council, and not until the night was far spent was order restored throughout- the city.—Unit. -D/ot.

J*at. Health—Sudden Deaths. We stated, several days ago, that there were many cases of cholera morbus and dy sentery in this Pistrict, some ot them prov ing suddenly fatal ; and we now reiterate the remark as applicable to the present time, with a view of impressing on the minds ot our citizens the importance <4 paying strict attention i" their food, by rejecting such arti cles of consumption as are likely to cause derangement in the animal system. The i clothing, too, should be adapted to the chan ge's of the weather, and unnecessary exposure to heavy night dews avoided. The remark of a sensible physician was, “hut whatever best agrees with you, be calm, and culti vate an honest conscience. ’ He was libe ral enough not to charge a foe for the good advice. Pining the present week we have hear* 1 of j at least six sudden deaths. I he deceased, in two instances, (it is said on the authority ot a physician,) partook heartily of oysters, which were partially decayed. A tew hours suffering with cramps huyried them from ex istence, a- in the case oi a black man, a week ago, who made a dinner on unsound tisli. The others, as we believe, likewise died in consequence of imprudence in the use ot im proper food. In one of the churches of this city, on Tuesday night, the minister informed the congregation that, on Monday, he attended the funeral ol an old citizen. 1 lie son-in-law of the deceased was present at the obsequies, but was taken sick in the graveyard and j died at his home on Tuesday morning, at 2 o’clock. Wo would bv no means contribute, even in the lea>t degree, to cause unnecessary alarm in the public mind ; hut when various sudden deaths, in quick succession, occur in the community, from ascertained causes, it is but right tiiat the fact should be made known for the benefit of the residents at large, in order that they may, as far as possi ble, guard against the approach of disease, : by a proper attention both to their food and personal habits.— M </.*//.

A most diabolical murder was committed i -i l.i near Benedict, m \ mines tmiiuv him v>l*ck. Mr. William Webster, formerly ot Prince lieorge’s County, was returning home from Benedict about eight o’clock in the evening an horseback, and when about a mile and a half from his dwelling lie was shot by some unknown person. The gun, supposed to he a musket, was heavily charged with slugs or large shot, and the entire contents entered his left side and passed through the body.— From the tracks ot blood in the road, it is supposed that Mr. Webster remained on his horse for some time alter he was shot, and that he fell at least a mile from the place where he was murdered. His horse was found at the stable in the morning, and soon after his body was discovered in the road not far from his home. Mr. W. was manager for Colonel Sothorn, and suspicion rests on one of the Colonel’s negroes, hut we do not learn the grounds of the suspicion. The murder was a mo t foul one, and has created an intense feeling in the community, and every effort will be made to discover the ! guilty one. No attempt was made to rob, as the money in Mr. W.'s pocket was undisturbed.—Mod boro* (iUZCt((\ A li»l<l Knave.

He after wards represented to Joseph Champion, ot the main line wharf boat, that Father Loup told him to borrow some money ot him, and he forged an order to that effect. He forged a ! similar order, made payable to Mr. 0 Neil, a clothing merchant. on Third street, neither of which were honored. On fhursdav last, he obtained admittance into the house ot !
