The Louisville Eiots.?We have at length a reliable aooount of these terrible^ffairs in the Louisville Courier of the 7th infant, the day after the election. The Washington reader will pereeive thai though no weapons were used in oar late municipal election, the arrangements of the Know Nothing managers here for tho perpetration of frauds on that oc casion. were closely parodied there, and were carried eut, by the aid of the torch of the in cendiary, the knife and fire-arms. As a matter of course, men who have sworn to perjure themselves, when acting as elec [ tion commissioners, on the witness stand, In the jury box, or wherever such acts may be ncceasary to justify and earry out any and everything designed for the benefit Of Know Nothingism, and who. professing to be law abiding citizen?, secretly countenance such f.Zts as wcro perpetrated ou Monday last in Louisville, and those which transpired in this city on the 4th of June last, (so well calculated to lead to the Louisville results,) will continue U> palliate and justify Know Nothing parti san ends, fraud, falsehood, murder and arson. {From the Louisville Courier, August 7 J Thr X KKKfDLE ELECTION RloTS IX Loi'IS v LLK.?We passed yesterday through the forms of an election. As provided by the statute, tuc polls were opened, and privilege ,ranted to such as were " right upon the goose, nth a few exceptions, to exercise their electtvo franchise. Never, perhaps, was a greater farce, or. as we should term it, tra Jj*dy, enacted. Hundreds and thousands were Ueterred from voting by direot acts of intimi ! ''at'On, others through fear of consequences, and a multitude from the lack of proper faci lities. The city, indeed, was. during the day. in possession of an armed mob, the base pas sions of which were infuriated to the highest pitch by the incendiary appeals of the news paper organ and the popular leaders of the know-nothing party. On Sunday uight largo detachments of men were sent to the first and second wards to see that the polls were properly opened. These men the ' American executive committee" supplied with requisite refreshments, and, as may be imagined. they wero in very fit con dition on yesterday morning to see that the rights of freemen were respected. Indeed, they discharged the important trusts com mitted to them in such manner as to commend tliem forever to the admiration of outlaws! They opened the polls ; they provided ways and means for their own party to vote ; they huffed and bullied all who could not show the sign ; they in fact converted the election into a perfect farce, without one redeeming or qualifying phase. We do not know when or how their plan of operations was devieed. Indeed, we do not care to know when such a system of outrage? such perfidy. such dastardy?was conceived. ?V c only blush for Kentucky that her soil wa? the scene of such outrages, and that some of tier sons were participants in the nefarious swindle. It would be impo&*iblo to know when or how this riot commenced. By day-break the polls were taken possession of by the American party, and, in pursuance ot their preconcerted game, they used every stratagem or device to hinder the vote of every man who could uot manifest to the 4- guardians of the palls" his soundness on the Know Nothing question. We were personally witnesses to the procedure ot the party in certain wards, and of these we ietd authorized to speak. At the Seventh Ward we discovered that for three hours in the outset in the morning it was impossible for those not "posted'' to vote without the great est difficulty. In the Sixth Ward a party of buliies were masters of tho polls. We saw two foreigners dri\cn from ! je polls, lorced so run a gauntlet, beat unmercifully, stoned, and stabbed. Iu the case of one fellow, the lion. >\ m. Thomasson, formerly a member of Con gress from this district, interfered, and while appealing to the maddened crowd to cease their arts of disorder and violence, Mr. Thomasaon was struck from behind and beat, liis gray hairs, his long public sen-ice, his manly presence, and his thorough American ism. availed nothing with the erased mob. Other and serious fights occurred in the Sixth Ward, of which we have no time to make mention now. The more serious and disgraceful disturb ances occurred in the upper wards. The vote cast was but a partial one, and nearly alto gctner on one side. No show was given to the iriends of Preston, who were largely in the majority, but who, in the face of cannon, mus kets, aud revolvers, could not. being an un armed and quiet populace, confront the mad mob. So the vote was cast one way. and the result stands before the public. In tno morning, as we state elsewhere, sSPl carPeutcr, living on the corner ot Nlth and Market streets, was killed near Hancock streets. A German named Fits, for merly a partner at the Gait House, was severe ly, if not fatally, beaten. ^teraodh a general row occurred on fchelby street extending from Main to Broad way. VVe are unable to ascertain the facts concerning the disturbance. Some fourteen or Siteen men were shot, including Officer Wil liams. Joe Selvage, and others. Two or three were killed, and a number of houses, chiefly Gorman coffee-houses, brok^i into and pill aged. About four o'cloci,;when the vast crowd, augmented by accessions from every part ot tho city, and armed with shot-guns, muskets, and rifles, were proceeding to aitack the Catholic church on Shelby street, Mayor Barbee arresied them with a speech, and the mob returned to the First Ward polls. Pres ently a large party arrived with a piece of nrass ordnance, followed by a number of men and boys with muskets. Iq an hour after wards the largo brewery on Jefferson street, near the junction of Green, was set firo to. In tho lower part of the city, the disturb ances were characterized by a greater degree of bloody work. Late in the afternoon, three Irishmen going down Main stroet, near Elev enth, were attacked, and one knocked down. Then ensued a terrible scene, the Irish firing from the windows of their houses, on Main street, repeated volleys. Mr. Rhodes, a river man. was jhot and killed by one in the upper story, and a Mr. Graham met with a similar fate. An Irishman who discharged a pistol at the back of a ifian's head, was shot and then hung, lie, however, survived both punish ments John Hudson, a carpenter, was shot dead during tuc fracas. After dusk, a row of frame houses on Main street, between Tenth and Eleventh, the prop erty of Air. Quinn, a well-known Irishman, was set ou fire. The flames extended across t he street, and twelve buildings were destroyed. These houses were chiefly tenanted by Irish, and upoo any of tho tenants venturing out to escape the flumes, they were immediately shot down. No idea could be formed of tho num ber killed. We are advised that Jive men wire roasted to death, having been so badly wounded by gun-shot wounds that they could not escape from the burning buildings. Of all the enormities auuoutrages commit ted by the American party yesterday and last night we have not now time to write. The mob having satisfied its appetite for blood, ie paired to Third street, and until midnight made demonstrations against the 11 Times'' and 4 Democrat" offices. The furious crowd satisfied itself, however, with breaking a few window-paues, and burning the sign of the Times office. At one o'clock this morning a large fire is razing in the upper part of tho city. t'pou the proceedings of yesterday and last night we have now no timo nor heart to com ment. We are sickened with the very thought of the men murdered, and houses burned and pillaged, that signalised the American victo ry yesterduy. Not leas than twenty corpses form the trophies of tliii wonderful achieve ment. Inter-Oceanic Ship Canal.?Wo learn, from a reliable soarce, that some enterprising citi zens of the Uriled States and New Granada have discovered and *rptor?d the long sought for r>>ute for connecting the Atlantic and Pa cific oceans by means of a jhip oanal This great desideratum to tho commercial w. rid is certainly the most grand and important enter pri-'v of this "fast'1 age, and worthy the at [ tention and consideration of every civilised people and government. The plan, as we understand it, is to go up the Atrato river some fifty miles from its mouth, with a depth of from six to ten fathoms, and from thence to the Pacific?a distanoe of tome ?ixty miles more?without a single lock or other obstruction in the contemplated canal. A liberal grant has been made by the Gov ernment of New Granada to the persons en gaged in this grand andertaking; and the whole rohte, frota one oCcah to the other, ha? been accurately surveyed, and the facts de veloped are beyond doubt or question, so far as the feasibility of the work is concerned. Nothing of which we are advised can equal the importance of this project, and the fact? presented to us are clearly presninptivo of the practicability of the enterprise. When we get the report in full of tho engineer who survey ed and measured the route, we will present it to our readers. The Br-iing Spirit of the Day?is much like that which distinguished the era in American public affairs that signalised tho adminis tration of the elder Adams. The only point jf difference is, that, then, tho cry was against infidelity, so far hs religion was concerned; while at this time it is against Catholicity, the religionists who take part in. the crusade of fho hour, huggirg to their hearts not only those who mast shamelessly deny tho existence >f a Supreme being in their habit of life, but -hose also whose infidelity is a matter of every lay boasting. The stato of popular senti ment that enacted the alien and sedition laws broke out in riot and bloodshed, wherover specious demagogues of position in society stepped forward to countcuanee such demon strations against the foreigh-born in our coun try, not more than against the letter and spirit jf our constitution and laws, and the eternal principles of justice, liberty, aiid rightj on which they (tho constitution and laws of the United States) are founded. It required but same two years for tho people to come to their senses, as was manifested not only in the re peal of the dangerous class-legislation to which ?te refer above, but in ostracising nearly all he public men who were conspicuous in the work of leading the popular mind astray tyr their own selfish and unprincipled ends, and n such a reaction in the popular mind Hi that ,'rom that day to the era of the burning of the ihurch of St. Augustine, in Phila lidphia. all were, with great unanimity, considered ene cies to the principles on which the con<titu lion of our country is based, who countenanced ;'?e idea that it was just, legal, and patriotic 0 make distinctions among citizens of the Uni .ed States on account of birth-place or religion. The existing phase of popular opinion to .vhich we refer, owes its origin, in agrc.it ir.ea iure, to the increasing hiibit of olfico-sceking .?mong our countrymen. Whcio one man ought office forty years ago, at least one hun Ired, if not five limes that number, seek office low. As it is impossible to gratify ail, an 1 as aany of the disappointed arc mere blather kiting, small-beer politicians, without either :haracter or true patriotism, they cast around hem for some means of obtaining revenge on he party whose election they aided, but rho preferred to entrust the business of the iovcrnment in other hands than theirs ; and >eing, most of them, cunning demagogues, hey essayed to play on two elements of he organization of the human mind, in which ho history of the progress of man, from the arbarism of the remotest times of which re have a record, shows that man i* weak :st. That is, to play on tho religi 'U? pre udices and the natural antipathies of race nate in the ignorant and pa.-sionatc thr?>ugh .ut all time and in every clime. The latter lement, by the by, may not fairly be pro tounced a weakness of humanity alone; as it .ever yet has happened that ;i strange d"g ap proached a lot of curs without instantly hcin;. ct upon, unless the latter, ou carefully sur veying tho etrangcr, became satisfied that in he tight they might possibly come ? ff second jest. But leaving this, our episode, we have emark that a portion of the politicians of the >ther party, ambitious of place at any sacrifice if American institutions and principled, at nee seized upon the burning hato and anti Imerican schemes of the disappointed Dcmo rats, on which to ride into power. Together. 11 most from tho date of the last presidential nauguration to this day, they have been proi cuting their plans; collecting large bodies of he ignorant, brutal, vicious, bigotted, fanati al and demagoguish in the secrecy of midnight, nducing them to forswear their integrity and illegiancc to the laws of the land and its con ititution,by specious appeals, which are success ul with even such persons, only because honest, patriotic, truthful, experienced and well in armed men are not permitted to bo present to :xpose, in the hearing of the masses, their langerous and really revolting tendency. In iuch secret meetings they aro taught that to lie is virtuous; that to perpetrate frauds | igainst their opponents is justifiable; and that X) commit violence under cover of tho dark less of the night, is patriotic. That this has ueon done for somo tirno past all over the United States, is proved not only by tho ritual jf the order, but by the affidavits of honest ind patriotic men who, having gone into their i?>dgof>, have felt it to be their duty to make public what transpired therein in their sight tnd hearing. Their system of operations, while well calculated to give the order evan escent success at the polls, is also just the thing to end in such riots as those of the pres ent season in Newark, Williamsburg, New Orleans, Cincinnati, Columbus (Ohio,) and Louisville; which being of a character almost unheard-of in the United States'since the days of Alien and Sedition law supremacy, are pal pably the result of the teaching of Know No thingism in the secrecy of its midnight con claves. Bounty Land Warrants.?In the case of a female warrantee, a femme covert, twenty years of age, the General Land Offico has decided that, if the statute of the State in which her domicil is situated allows females of tho age ?>f eighteen to transfer real estate, the local land officers are authorised to permit the war rant to be located in the name of an assignee, upon its being filed at tho proper district land office, with an assignment executed by the warrantee and her husband, according to the forms prescribed in tho general circular of 3d May, 1&>5, and accompanied by a duly certi fied copy of tho statute aforesaid, with evi. dcnce showing the place of her domicil. Hondacity ?Notwithstanding the dreadful features of the Louisville riots, we cannot help beir.g amused with the utter lack efprinciple, honc.ty, truth, justice, and sound American 1 at ui.tniiesied by the New York Exprtss in its oommonti on the dreadful occurrence* of Monday last The false veraion of the affair, telegraphed in all directions bj the man who has sworn that he will perjure himself in the witness' stand, or commit any crime that may be necessary to be perpetrated to serve " the ends cf the ordor," is instantly seised on by the Express; and by its similarly foresworn writer, is embellished with the addition of any number of monstrosities, coined to suit the oc casion, in that person's brain. In the face of the fact that every Know-Nothing original ac count of the murder and bloodshed resulting within the last year from their efforts to over turn law, fire or sack buildings, and kill individuals, in order to carry their political points, (as at Williamsburg, Newark, New Or leans, Cincinnati and Columbus, Ohio,) have been j.roved to be atrociously false on investi gation?the Express comments on the Louis ville riots, so as to create in clear heads and honest hearts the impression that the party or parties responsible for the article would not hesitate to steal, cut a throat, or fire a house, if under the belief that duo punishment for such acts could certainly bo avoided. Pardonsd?We understand that the Presi dent has directed the pardon of Thomas Harry, convicted some time ago in the criminal court for this county of an assault with intent to kill the late Psino Todd, Esq. Ilarry has been confined for four years in the peniten tiary of tho District of Columbia, and had about eighteen months to serve. f _____ - e Appointed.?Mr. Thomas J.

North Carolina.?This morning wc have news by tel jgraph from North Carolina, which increases tho prospect of the defeat of Puryear, (K. N.,) who, it will be recollected, was an opposition member in the last House. Scales, bis anti-Know Nothingopponent, is, in all prob ability elected, which will make tho North Carolina delegation in the next House stand anti-Know Nothing 6, Know Nothing 2. Alabama.?-Our correspondent at Montgom ery, than whom we know no more reliable man in such cases, telegraphs to us to-day as follows: Montgomery, Aug. 8.?Winston's majority M immense. We have returns sufficient to show the triumphant election of Dowdell. Har ris. Shorter, and Houston, (all anti-K. N.'s? lid ) Nothing decisive yet irorn Cobb's dis trict. In the Mobile district, there is a pros pect, so far, of the election of Stawlworth (anti) over Percy Walker (K. N.) The Legis lature is largely Democratic, and Fitxpatrick's re-election to the Senate is thus insured. Au hour before tho receipt of this dispatch, we received another from a distinguished pub lic man, as follows: Montgomery, Aug. 8.?Dowdell is elected i>jr five hundred majority. Winston will be sleeted by upwards of six thousand. Dowdell's district is composed of the coun ties of Chambers, Russell, Macon, Tallapoosa, Montgomery, and Autagua. They usually 5've an aggregate anti-Democratic majority of .'.000. Mr. Abcrcrombie, Whig, has been their representative in Congress for some years past. Dowdell, we know, had determined not to run. but was forced out as late as the last of June, (lis victory, under all these adverse circum stances, proves that Know Nothingism has greatly injured rather than strengthened the ?au?e of the opposition in Alabama. The dis trict borders on Georgia and is principally ?ettlcd by Georgians; which, in turn, is sig aificant of the fate that awaits Know Nothing sm in Georgia at the approaching election in that State. Tlnnessee. AV e are without additional re turns from that State. The last insure the slection of Smith, anti-K. N., and of Zolli koffer and Rivers, K. N.'g. Nothing decisive aas been heard from any other Congressional jontest in that State, though we take it for granted that the new delegation will stand Know Nothing 7, anti-Know Nothing 3. John son's majority for Governor will be about as large as he received at tho last Gubernatorial ulcetion there. Kentucky.?No further election details have reached us to-day from Kentucky. Know Nothing dispatches claim Morehead's election by between 6,000 an,! 7,000 majority-highly probable, if their election commissioners did ilsewhere in the State as at Louisville. (Vide the extract from the Louisville Courier of the 7th instant in anothor column.)
