The following extraordinary statement will confirm Hie suspicions which have ions been , entertained that the men i,-s •>! the Democrat- ; IC party in this Stale have been supplied with j vast sums lor the purpose ol corrupting the bal- | lot-box ; ami that these funds have been distri- | huted with a profligacy and a profusion never before equalled in political experience, ihe parties implicated in the following cxpase, have heretofore stood high in this community. '1 hey hear a dose relation to the immediate personal fortunes of John C. Fremont. Mr. P>. Rsh Plumfey, the person who paid mom y !o a Dem ocrat., William, McMullin. of Movameiisitig, is an uneasy lunatic ot the Lucre! ia Aloft school. Indeed, lie tvas tyern partner of (he son-in-law of Lucre!ia Afott, E. M. Davis, of this city, and is tile intimate associate ot the friends of John C . and doubtless identified witii t lemout and, tiivsy'iiicii in California and sjevnlatiuns. The rhonev thus paid to Mr. McMuilm is no doubt a puit'i n of the §70,000 subscribed to Wnw F. Johnston in New York and h sL.n, to corrupt the people of Pennsylvania, and defeat the will oi" the majority, v. Rich t> cntfon to be declared to-morrow in favor d James an and John C. Brecki: ridge. It will be seen that while this money is u.->rd in the interior of the State to i-uy tti tie- honest frienus of Mill ard Fillmore, here, in PnLadriphiu, it is cue,l - for the purpose of debauching our coble citizens. The facts disci sod, show that these funds have be, i. diArit uted to- outers , and it fs beyond doubt that * sjn-ctati. to are iit.u.ged that thev car. bo used to induce Democratic Of ficers of the Election to w fate their solemn pledges to the laws and to tin- |,s of their glorious party. 1' e </y not befotv • hou v ver, that millions oj money conll swerve a single horns' Democrat from his duty. This; disclosure, coming, as it does, at a time when j the whole community is rife with calumnies j circulated against the Democratic party, charg ing that party with the commission of certain j frauds on the elective franchise on the 14-th of j October, shows how little* reliance is to he p!a- j red in 1h- sanctimonious .and self-righteous] leaders of the Abolition Fremont party in this city. Wc advise our fri -nds in every i art of Penn sylvania. to be on the aleit- telegraphic des patches have been circulated to every point, ad monishing them of this great outrage on tire bal lot-box, and we also advise our friends in the citv of Philadelphia to-morrow to be vigilant and warv ; for it is beyond doubt that immense amounts of this corruption fund have beer, cir culated in Philadelphia. * . iWTWfttfeU of Mtitard ,#jUmare can mff. M>* vvney ol tii speculators and capitalists of n™ /fork and Nor England is brought into our / midst to buy them off and induce them to betray their candidate. Let our friends in New* York, Ohio and in this State be on their iruard. The following tacts may be relied on : On i riday last, a w<-il-known leader of the Fre mont forty m this city, B. Br '. Plumlev, whose residence is \o. bS North Tenth street, sought an interview at his own house, with sev er,l well-known individuals of the lower Wards •>t this city, lie disclosed to them what plans <■ fraud and collusion had been adopted by the l\i'publican leaders at the lr,le election. Jle cave the names of hi s confederates, who were at that time in session at the Girard House, and proposed a new scheme of villainy tor the Pres idential election, lie stated that !:<• had a de posit of five thousand dollars in the City Bank, applicable to such a purpose. The negotiation was adjourned until the next day, when it was resumed by Plnmley, he visiting the house of the parties in question for the purpose. The result of this was the promise Of five hundred dollars as ,1 first installment. On the following cay, Sunday, for iture seems no day of rest for such schemes, Plumhy called again upon the party in question, and paid to him, in pursu-, ••nee of the arrangement, the sum ol four bun- ! dred and seventy-five dollars, in three SIOO i notes on the Farmers and Mechanics' Bank, one SIOO note of the Soutl.vvark Bank, one s'so ! note of the Bank of Northern Liberties, and the j rest in gold, for this and the further payment j to be made to-day, file plan of fraud was to be I completed. Plum ley stated that arrangements ! of the same kind had been made in some of the t other Wards, specifying them, and with other j parties whose names the public authorities de- j riine furnishing. At this stage of the affair, the I facts were disclosed to the police and by them ! communicated to the District Attorney, who [ has the matter now in charge, and who has we \ learn, dn ected the arrest ol the principal oflen- i deng. John M. Butler, who ivsidt s at Tenth and Fitz-water, a copper-plate printer, and who is high in the confidence of the Fremont leaders, gave to the Democratic Inspector of the precint in which he resides SIOO, to be divided be tween fringe!! and two other persons, and also tile Democratic Clerk $lO, promising biiu £515 more ti he would help them all he could. In addition to the above startling facts, it is only necessary to add that Truman Smith, of Connecticut, and others, have been closeted at the Guard House, doubtless to prepare and to push forward this monstrous plot. We congratulate the community on the time ly discovery of this scheme of wrong. All the parties, and we learn there are some of high po sition, resident here, will be arrested to-day, and measures DO doubt have been taken to se cure some of the confederates from abroad, un- j less they have already tied. Warrants have been issued for the arrest of B. RUSH PLI'MLEY and JOHN M BUT LER. AFFIDAVIT. The following affidavit, whirh we have just rcctrv- ail, was given at The Mayor's office, this evening, gild discloses the character and the enormity cl the {fraud contemplated : MAYOR'S OIFICE, | Phila., Nov. a, ) U'IULIAM McMiU.rx, being duly sworn according to law, deposes antfoavs that he resides in Etgth street below South.

The following article from the Louisvuie (Old School) Presbyterian paper, reflects,SO viv- , id!v the principles we have advocated during j the present canvass, that we ar>- iniluced, not withstanding the pressure of other matter, to ; insert it entire : "The Christian who does lor his country all ; that the Bible requires him to do, will be the ve- . ry highest style <T patriot. His religion requires j him to love all men, even including his ene- ] mies,and to do good to all men as he has oppor- i tunitv. He is commanded to love his country, ; but he is not permitted to hate other countries, ] audio tear them down that lie may build bis' own up. He should love his whole count I\, and not "Simply the particular portion of it in which he resides. The patriotism of the Bible is wholly oppo sed to sectionalism or the feeling which seeks to aggrandize one particular section of the country at the expense of the Other. It was remarked of nations that their interests never clash with I each other, though there may at times appear to be a conflict. The same remark may be made touching the interests of different sections of one great country like ours. 1 here may, at limes, a pH fpt jjpu, .andth*■ South, and the Kast ] effects or Vt. ' That interest of which is promoted bv theinjurv of another sec tion, i> only a temporary one. The prosperity promoted in such way will eventual I v be seen | to he not a lasting prosperity, just as no man j can he permanently prospered by the ruin of | his neighbors. He may appear, for a season, - to prosper, but in the end the injury will be re flected hack upon himself. , It is impossible, therefore, in (he very nature of the, that Christian patriotism can be sre s tional. It seeks to promote the interests of the s whole country, because bv so doing it best pro motes the welfare ol every part of it. It seeks * no advantage for its set tion at the expense of t others. Mason and Dixon's line is not the I j boundary of its affections. If" it breathes in - the bosom of a man, South of that line, it ■ i makes liirn rejoice in the prosperity of those of , his fellow-citizens hose kits are cast North of ■ - as much as does the prosperity of his own ■ section, it it is found in a Northern bosom, it I is equally as expansive. It embraces the South as weil as the North in the arms of its love. The Christian patriot ought to ask himself the question "how would I regard the measure or • policy which 1 now advocate were I in the place of my fellow-citizens in another section. I What influence will my favorite measures or ■ men have upon the whole country, and not sim ' ply upon the part of it in which 1 reside!" I lie should expand his mind, and take enlarged ! \ lews of the subject. I here is nothing narrow ior contracted about Christianity. Those pro | feasors of it who have contracted views or feei- I j ings have them in spite of their religion, and 1 j not in virtue of it. If the enlarged patriotism 1 i ificuleafed in (he Bible, could only become I thoroughly predominant once more in the heart ' j of Christian own at the North and the South, if j I they could lie brought to Jay aside all reference ;to their particular sections, and would ali look ; at the greatest good of the whole country, the strife which is now racing with such violence would soon cense. If the North would do to the South, and the South do to the North just what they each would have the other do to them, were their circumstances reversed, all contention would soon cease, and peace arid harmony would soon prevail again. This is precisely the kind of patriotism which the JBi b<e inculcates. Without this no couniiy as large as ours is ran hold together and prosper, i With it, it may flourish and grow stronger to the ! end of time. A HINT ON BUTTER.

There will be much poorer but termilk, and, of course, more buffer where this is attended to. It is' better, too, not to churn (ream the same day it is taken from he milk. It should stand awhile with the rest, and be thoroughly mix-d together. It takes us 40 minutes to chum, and the butter comes hard and yellow.

FILL PARTKTLARS OF THE BATTLES OF ID ASSAY A A!Vl> GRANADA. Terrible Scenes in Grajwdn !—Wholesale .Mar il ars and Robberies ! Our tiles of .New Orleans papers to the - Id are at hand. They contain the details ot the late Nicaragua!! news. Capt. Williams, of Gen. Walker's army, who came as a passenger in the Tennessee, giv.-s de tailed accounts ot the bat tUs fought at M assay a and Granada. His report agrees with that tel egraphed. Ge. Walker was preparing to march in pursuit ot the enemy. The howitzers and Minnie rifles sent front New York were received previous to the re cent battles. Minister Wheeler was dangerously ill, hav ing been attacked with a tit of apoplexy. • CAPT.. WILLIAMS' STATEMENT. Gen. Walker was well ail vised of the move ments ofthe enemv, Silt with his usual caution he kept his information and plans from the pub lic. About the Ist of October, the order was given for the out-garrisons ut San Carlos, Kivas, Tipitapa and Managua, to concentrate on Gra nada. Shortly afterward the advanced guard at Massayt was ordered to fall back also upon the capital. It at once became evident that Genera! Walker had determined to draw the enemy on, and choose his own ground for the halt le. On the evening ofthe 11th, he ieit Granada with 1 100 men for Massava. i his is a town situated some fifteen miles- from Granada, con taining about 8000 inhabitants. .Nature has endowed it with many at vantages. It has two plazas, in the oenire of the principal one stands a large church, on.either side a lew shops. Ihe houses are principally built of adobe. It was here that Gen. Walker had determined to meet the forces of the Allies. Ihe troops maicheii .nearly all night over a muddy and slippery |road, and before the morning <>l the 12th, were before the town winch was in po.* ssinn of en em v who were said to he about 400 ) strong. Being advised of the approach of Gen. \\ aik er. thev had advanced on the road from tlm town with a strong body of troops. Cither side bf the road was lined with high hushes and cac tus. At daybreak Gen. Walker formed his tnen in column, and ordered a charge at once The rush was made, and the enemy broke and fled before the head ofthe column couid reach them. The Americans kept on and followed the enemv into the town, where they weie stronglv posled in the plazas and streets. A ton a gallant tight which had lasted all through the day and evening, Gen. Walker was in position at 1 P M. with his how it Zeis before the up between the walls of the houses, which .were cut through for that purpose. The troops were ordered at this hour to sleep on their arms. I hey had fought hard, and thev slept well. " ' S About half-past 2 A. P. 1., an express from Granada arrived, advising Gen. Walker that tile city had been attacked at noon of the dav before, by a force of nearly 1,400 men, these were from the hacienda of San Jacinto, and had been joined by bodies ol troops from San Salva dor and Guatemala, with a few Chamornstas. I hey had advanced upon Granada by a differ ent road from that leading to Massava, and had surrounded the city, attacking it on'all sides.— I here w ere very few troops, which, with the American citizens left in the city, did not a mount to over 150 men. These took posses-ion of the ordnance department, guard-house, hos pital, and principal church, all on the main pla- 1 za, and the ladies took refuge in the (muse of' the American Minister am) some ol the idreign consulates. Ihe handful of men defended the ; plaza successfully for t went v-fbnr hours. Ihe enemy ransacked everv house in search of Americans and money. Mr. Law less, the Rev. Mr. Wheeler, and Mr. Ferguson and son w ere dragged into the streets and murdered. Halker's residence was pillaged and his papers scattered over the floor in the wild hunt for plunder. About 10 A. M., of the 13th, the gallant band tn the plaza had the first intima tion that succor was at hand in the booming of the howitzers and the rattle of the musketry in the attack of Gen. V\ alker on the enemy at Jalteba church, about three-quarters of a mile immediately behind the Ordinance Depart ment. Immediately on receiving the ne\vs brought to Massaya by the express, Gen. Walker vaca ted that town with all bis troops,and commenc- j Ifd a forced march for Granada. At 10 A. M., | he attacked the enemy, who were posted in force on the height of the Jalteba church, and charging at once, captured two field pieces, and drove them, at the point of the bayonet, into and through ttie city. Ihe rout commenced in every direction. But on all sides tbey were met by parlies that Gen. Walker had "ordered to make a detour round the city, and their dis persion was complete. It is estimated that about 400 of the allies! were killed at Massaya, and an equal number J at Granada. Nearly every house on the even- ' ing of the 13th, when our informant left, was I filled with their wounded. The loss of the I Americans in both engagements was only 16 ! killed and 2b wounded. We have not been able to learn the names of any of the killed. Among the wounded are Capt. Bell, Dr. Scott, ■ Capt. Hardy, Mr. Tabor, editor of the JVYc/ira ffuerme: Capt. Green, Harbormaster, Capt.' Pickergiil, and Major Giles. The enemy were reported to be retreating ' from Massaya, and General Walker would ad vance northward as soon as his troops had some little rest. Capt. Williams informs us thai his baggage! was packed ready to start when the attack took place. He was rifled of everything by the en emy on the assault on Granada. In his trunk : was nearly two hundred letters from persons in the United Stairs, but he was able to gather j I up a few of them, and many of these without their envelope, after the mule of the enemy.— Those he saved have been mailed here. A company of General Walker's troops are stationed 4m the San Juan river, at the mouth of the Serapiqui, and about 100 recruits arrived at Grevtown on the Tennessee. They would proceed to Granada at once. .Capt. Williams informed us that he learned from one of the men who returned from the bat tle of San Jacinto, that Mr. Callahan, our late esteemed correspondent, was last seen wounded, and nearly exhausted, pursued by some cavalry, and endeavoring to get into the bush. Jn this he did not succeed, as the horses were nearly upon him at the time. THE SLAVERY DECREE. We find in the* papers no decree relative to \ the re-institution o! slavery, and think tiie an nouncement ot that step by the iexa, at |New , York a few days since, was unfounded. The following is a resume of th-> condition of Gen. Walker's f irces and resources, published on the i 11th, just before the advance on Massava : All the internal and external fo--s of the | States have been straining tlieir utmost energy ; to cripple ns at a season when it was impossible to take the field ; and \et, despite all these ob- j stacUs, the Government stands firmer than it ever did. VV ith two thousand men capable of ■ bearing arms, with all the improvements of war ; fare, with a better knowledge of the country, ! with a steamship line bringing means to us at every juncture, and with renewed confidence, ! how can we entertain an opinion conttary to the speedy and certain restoration of peace and executive authority over ail the departments of the State? It is "only a matter of time, ot weeks, before this whole difficulty will be ter | initiated. THE EA.IEEES fi.Ni TEX AS. The Galveston News correspondence from Castraville, .Medina county, Texas, dated ]9th : ultimo, from which we take the following in i teresting particulars in relation to the camels ' which have latelv been imported there by the j United Stales Government : "J had also the pleasure of making the ac- ! qnaintance ol Major Wayne, tor several years attached to the War Department in Washing ton, who went out last year to Asia and intro duced the camels into this country, which arri ved at Indianola last spring, and are now kept at this post. It has been selected by him a the I beat adapt'd to that service for w liich he in tends them. When we ailived they were gla zing some two miles distant, attended by the Arabs who have chaige of them, when Major Wayne very kindly sent out and had them driven in foi our inspection. There are alto gether thiiU-two, including some young ores, and all are in excellent health, and seeiil to he I doing well. Major Wavne gave us a very in teresting account of their habits and pecniiari j ties, and lie ordered one of them to be led out and loaded as il lor a journey. After keeelmg to receive the pack-saddle, a most cumbrous ! load of Osell, but such as are used in the countiy , from which thev came, a load ol CM n was plac ed on the animal's back, sufficient for two mules ! to draw in a wagon, with which he started ofi at a good round pace. A dromedary was next led out, w hick is the saddle animal of the camel, and, alter kneeltr.g to receive the saddle, he wa> mounted by an Arab, who started on across ! the prair ie at a | ace which seemed to me not much short of a two forty.

The Brad Sea. Though in breadth not extending ten miles the Dead Sea seems boundless to the eye w fieri looking from north and south, and the murmur Jof ' lie waves, as they break on its llint strewn ; .-hoi together with the lines ol drift wood and | fragments of bitumen on the beach, give to Us waters a resemblance to the ocean.

Henry Ward Beecber recently stated at a political meeting at Woodstock," Connecticut, that "any man that voted for Buchanan was guilty of committing a heinous crime in th sight of God, and as lie drew his hand away from ttie ballot-box it would turn red with blood." PIIKCIOUS MOUTHFUL.—A voting gentleman of this city called at an oyster stand a dav or two since, nnd ordered a "dozen in the shell.** The order was attended to in a moment, and when he attempted to swallow t-he fiot tester, he felt some hard substance in his mouth, which he took out and placed on the stand beside him. After the whole were disposed of, lie examined the hard substance, which he supfiosed to be a pebble,' and discovered that it was a large arid valuable pearl. Various jewellers estimate jig value from ten to forty dollais.—Syrnrn/se Stan dard. MARKETS. NEW YORK, NOV. 3.
