EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: THIMDAY - JItTfmbfr 3, 1847, SPIRIT Of THB MOKNING PKbSS The Inte/fiwmetr republishes from that able and well-balanced journal. the Richmond nmuur,A recent article upon the present phase of the Kansas embrogHo, wherein it is held, with remarkable force o( argument, that the cause of the South has nothing to gain by the perpetuation of frauds in ita name, and Lake* occasion to sa* In the course of its remarks up<?n that article. '?Upon tbe*e lists of national controrersy the Federal Governor of the Territory has l>een railed to act somewhat the part of juds/e and arbiter. Hi* conduct and bis decision* In tt*e discharge of hi* delicate task have therefor* Wen canned w:tfc the utmost narrowness by toe clansmen of the contending factions; and these, in the pros pect of confusion a id overthrow, have severally sought to transfer the blame froin the weakness of their own cause or of its adherents to the shoulders of the Federal I mpire, which latter have seemed broad enough, in the rase of Goeer tror Walker, t.> bear every variety of crimination, however adverse. I'nder these circumstance*, evea If his conduct had not. in the main, seemed to us clearly defensible in the light of the positive farts by which It Was explained, the very contra riety of the strictures to which he has been sub jected by the prejudiced partisans of both sides in this miserable squabble would be no insignifl cant testimony to the general impartiality with which he has sought to discharge his difficult and thankless office.'* The Union eonoludes that the Baltimore election was a mere mockery, being peaceably conducted only where and when the Democrats refrained from risking their lives in attempting to avail themselves of their nominal right of eitiaensnip. The Union in this connection quotes the Republican's account of some of the outrages said to hare been committed. From the Union's quotation we quote as follows, for the information of the Star's readers : '* Outrage, vioienre and fraud are the order of the day. The law and th" constitution are a;:ain being trampled under foot, and peaceable citi xen* depriv?d?f their rights by rr ffian bands. At the Eighteenth Ward the band of Little Fel lows came to the polls about as soon as they were opened, and commenced to knn- k down and tire upon the Democratic voters, driving them from tbe pulls and following them with a volley of shot*. No arrests node or attempted. At the Fifteenth Ward the si me out ajjes were openly perperrated in the sight of the police. '? Captain Joel Vickers went up to vote In com pany with a naturalized citix-n. who was met at the outskirts of the crowd and a Know Nothing ticket th-iist at him. which declining to take, he was immediately knock-d down and kicked in an inhuman manner; and upon Ciptain Vickers calling upon a police officer to protect the man and procure him a chance to vote, he was rough ly told to no home and take his fiiend with him, or they w<>uld both be taken to the station-house. Captain Vickers immediately left a:id went to the .Mayo.-'* oiL e ;0 make complaint to that officer. The Mayo r wis not to be found, and thus the out rage wa? unredressed, and a good and peaceable citixen deprived of his vote." At 4 p. m we received a dispatch saying that the rotes of foreign born citizens were very gen erally deluded by such outrages as tho?e ex plained above. 1H7* The Pennsylvania Railroad Company have resolved that it is not advisable to declare their usual dividend Fire at Blades?bihg.?The storehouse of Mr Henry T. Scott, and its contents, in the village of Bladensburg, Aid., were consumed by lire on .Monday night last. Mr. Scott had no Insurance on his property. The houses in the vicinity nar Towly escaped destruction. Rairoae Depot Bcist ?The depot cf the Illi nois Cential Railroad, at Cairo, was destroyed by lire oa Sunday night, with four freight cars and the engine bouse. Loss jrJOO.OUO. Packages con taining ?3.000, belonging to the Express compa nies, were destroyed. Tbk Bank PiTTseiRG.?A meeting of the stockholders of the suspended banks of Pittsburg was held on Monday, and it was resolved to ac cept tbe provisions of the relief bill. The stock holders of the .Merchants and Manufacturers' Bank have appointed a commit tee to investigate the affairs of the bank, and pnblish the same. The Foreigx Markets.?Letters dated Octo ber 24th, received at Halifax, by the steamer Can ada, represent cottenas closing dull at decline during the week. The receipts were very mode rate and the stocks greatly reduced, but holders nevertheless c fl?red supplies freely at the dt-cliue above noted. Middling Orleans was 9 1-W# Flour had declined 6d., chiefly in medium grades. Wheat was dull and prices favored buyers, but the quotation was nominal. Indian corn in fair request, and choice lots saleable at previous prices Sugars weie exceedingly hea vy. and to move them to any considerable extent a large decline would have to be submitted to. The letters represent money as easily obtained at the current rates, and parties outside of banks were offering to loan on consols at 0 ^ per cent. There was no excitement in the market, nor any failures of moment American stocks were with out marked variation and transactions libsral. The New York Election.?The New York Pun says : "The result in this city i? a sweeping Democratic victory. For the first time in many years, if not for the first tiinesince New York has been a city, the Democrats have carried every Ward ; all the State Senators, and apparently all the members of Assembly. It is decidedly "a rlean" triumph in this city, and the result in Brooklyn, where the fusion opposition were more confident <1 sum see, is similar." The Journal of Commerce says - Their majori ty in the city at large, on Secretary of State, is 'J3.5S8 over the Republican candidate, '2?,1*24 over the American candidate, and 15,514 over both of them. The following are the county and judicial offi cers just chosen for this city : Supreme Conrt, D P Injrraham, Democrat, long term, Josiah Sutherland. Democrat, short; Superior Court, Joseph S Cos worth and Edward P.e-pont. Demociat* ; Common Pleas, Uenrv S. H:1 ton, Democrat; Marine Court, Florence Mc Carthy. Democrat; Surrogate. Edward C.

Such is an abstraet of detailed reports \\ batever there may lie exceptionable In the <l?in^?? of the day remains to be officially Invest gated and disposed of, If at all. We have seeu and beard enough to know that no practical remedy for existing evils is likely to t>e einployed at present.

' washing ton news and gossip Thi Prospect A?ead.?The New York Herald of a late date ?b?w? (Ml the banks af that citj increased their amtvfit of fptcie on hand, throughout the month of Octobir, about eight and a half millions of dollnn, inotu ding certificates of deposit received by the Persia to the amount of ortra million which are a.? good as specie in all business transactions, and more convenient in form. The total amount of specie sent out of the country in the conrse of the month is not more than two or three hundred thousand dollars. At the very lowest calculation we may safely set down the net increase of the specie in the New York ci^ banks, in the month, at seven and a half mil lions of dollars. The amount of prodacb that found it* way to that city, in tho month, must also have increased the available resources of the banks to more than a million of dollars. From the last mentioned source the increase in November is destined to be much greater than in October, daring most of whioh month tho basiness of forwarding produce from the Great West was entirely suspended under the influ ence of the panic. By the 1st of December we presume that the New York banks will be at least fifteen millions stronger than on the 1st of Oetobcr. Nevertheless, we perceive no movement among them looking to the resumption of spe cie payments. Bank? are afflicted with chronic disinclination to do that thing?to pay specie? in such times. The existing legal provisions in that State secure New York bank noteholders in realising par, past peradventure. Their enactment wns the result of disinclination pre viously manifested to pay specie. The expe rience of current times will doubtless have the effect of inducing such a movement on the part of the people at large, of the State as will ead in legal provisions making every bank stockholder as liable for all the transactions of the bank in which he is part proprietor, as he would be for the obligations of any commercial concern in which he might be a partner with out limit as to capital invested. That's the antidote for the disease?and that only. Cotto* is Kiwo '?The force and truth of this a<l?g? is most effectively set forth in a brief extract from an autfcoritatife quarter, which will be found below. It is not a little remarkable that the capital ists of the North should persist in warring on the interests and progress of the cotton States hs they do, by encouraging the fell spirit of Abolitionism among the prejudiced and ignorant in their midst. \\ bile cotton continues to hold its present position in the world of commerce, and it continues to be found impossible to ob .ain the increased supply of the raw material that commerce requires, elsewhere than in the Southern States, domestic and foreign combi nations against their interests will "all prove abortive. Thus, while elsewhere in this coun try at this moment commercial and individual embarrassment rules the hour, throughout the whole South bankruptcy of corporations or in dividuals is absolutely unknown, there never having been a time before when everybody and every thing throughout the South was so clear of debt, and held so much substantial and en t:rely-paid-for wealth. This condition of things Southern is not alone that of tho owners of the means of producing cotton?the slave holders. But of every one in the South rngngrd in any and all callings whatever JIow forcibly does the fact refute the arguments of those who are harping upon the falsehood that the existence of slavery mil itates against the interest of free labor in its midst! Tin: Cottom CJpestiok ? It is extremely inter esting?!!!; i?**. indeed, a term expressivebf some deeper euiotion should he employed?to remark t fie views and proceeding* of the manufacturing world at this moment with regard to the cotton supply.

There Is no delusion or ni <nia uh>ut all this.

As a matter of fact, it must I* presumed that this adjust nun: up to a certain period had actu .il.y' taken place; indeed, it is but just now that a positive dearth of cotton is appiehended.

Lo*<1oa Tismi, Oct. Lith Last Night, large crowds assembled around the telegraph offices in the National Hotel building and at Browns' Hotel, evidently called thither by interest in the Baltimore election. At one period nearly a thousand persons seemed to be in that vicinity, all apparently deeply engaged in discussing the numerous flying re ports from the Monumental City, said to have been brought to Washington by passengers on the last Baltimore train, and, subsequently, by telegraph It was at one time believed by the excited multitude that half the eity well-nigh was in aahes, and at another that hundreds ,'! 1" kiM?d in riots commencing at the polls. The truth concerning the alleged almost entire forcible denial of their political rights to the opponent, of the party that now controls Baltimore through their organized ruffian figh' mg clubs, was probhbly bad enough in all eot science, though not a tithe as bad as the raw head and bloody bones rumors aforesaid A New Wkiski.e ?Travelers North by the line leaving this city at half-past fonr p m are usually Tictinnof the unoomfortablenes* of the arrangements for making the connection be tween the Baltimore depot io Philadelphia and the New York depot in the same eity.

Th? McQbk OorMTY Election.?We pub lish below the eecond proclamation of Governor Walker relfttiag to the alleged fraudulent voting in the recent Kansas election, which came to hand yesterday. It will be perceived that Governor W. bases his action in this case on the fnct of the entire and glaring invalidity (illegality) of the returns in question made to him. expressly disclaiming any pretanoe what ever of right to go behind returns made to him in compliance with the Territorial law. This p iper (his proclamation) forms an interesting chapter of currer^ political history : Govkksor Walks a'* Skcoxd Proclamation TO THE PKOPLK O* kansas. LrCowpton, Oct. 22, 1857. Since our proclamation of the 19th instant, re jecting the so-called election returns from the Oxford precinct in Johnson county, another very similar ra.se has been presented for our official art ion. It is that of pretended returns from three precincts of Mr.Gee county, In this Territory, con taining an aggregate of inore than twelve hun dred vote*. The county is located in tke extreme southeastern portion of Kansas, is constituted from the lands of the Cherokee Indians, which ae not yet open to pre-emption of settlement, and is consequently one of the most sparsely popu lated counties of the Territory, containing less than one hundred qualified voters, and giving last J nne hut fourteen votes for delegates to the Constitutional Convention. Indeed, all persons actually conversant with the numlier of the nopulation'of this county,treat with derision the large vote pretended to have b^en given there. Our information also excludes the idea that there was any incursion of voters from the neighboring State of Mi?souri, whose people do not seem to have interfered with the recent election. It is, then, quite evident that no such vote as is presented in these pretended re turns was given at the late election in this county. It is not, however, on the grounds above stated that we reject these pretended returns, butfeeling confident that no such vote was given, or even one-tenth part of it, we are induced by such con siderations to give these alleged returns the most rigid scrutiny, in order to ascertain whether they aie genuine, legal, and valid. From intrinsic evidence on the face of the pa pers, we are convinced they are not gennine, but simulated and fictitious. Besides, they present no evidence that the oath required by'our stat utes was administered to the clerks or judges of the election, to secure from each and all of them the -impartial discharge oi their duties accord ing to law." but in addition to these grounds of decision against the legality and validity of these pre tended returns, there is yet a more conclusive wh5ch constrains us not to count tbein hue the names of the voters, and of the candi dates all apiiear to be entered on the lists, not one of the office* is mentioned for which the can didates respectively were intended to be desig iiated. We cannot determine, therefore, front the face of those papers, for what office anv one of the candidates was supj>orted The uniform ity in this particular of these pretended returns from three separate arid distinct precincts, espe cially as the forms are not made up in the same hand writing,nor?with certain exceptions, which only add force to the argument?on the same kin.1 of paper, renders, with other circumstances c onclusive to our minds the conviction that thev nre, as above .stated, fictitious and simulated It is most extraordinary, also, that not a single vote appears to have been given for any county officers In rejecting these papers we do not go behind the returns, because no legal or valid returns are made. Neither in the former instance nor in this have we claimed the power to judge of the qualifications of voters, and to exciud- votes ?teemed to be illegal. What constitutes a retu n is defined by the Territorial statutes; and to re ject a paper as spurious or fictitious, or because in points of vital importance, it deviates from the requisitions of the law, and therefore is not a le iuiii in legal parlance, is not L'oing behind the return, as we have been unjustly charged with If these papers, like those from the Oxford pre cinct, would increase bv n-arly twelve hundred the apparent votes for the candidates of our party although the officers are not named; our obliga tion is none the less paramount to rejei t them an we now do. as spurious and Illegal. An election . secured through our sanction, by frauds .o mon Mr. us, would be more fatal to our party than anv tlrfeet, howeverdisast ous. We deem it our dutV to state that according to our information, some. If not all the candidates, who it was supposed might claim their election by these frauds have refold to accept any advantage under them I hese disreputable attempts to destroy the elective f.ancbise, and all popular government which is Iws-d upon it. and to subject us to the responsibility of rejecting such papers, or len denng ourselves accomplices in the fraud, by L'lving it our endorsement and sanction will meet, we doubt not, the serious reprehension of honest men Of all parties in this Territory and throughout the Lmon. The intense and danger ous excitement produced in this Territory bv these enormous frauds has rendered it imperative cp<>n us, in this puWie, official minner. to make known our decision in regard to them, believing tint a just and impartial course of action on ou* w! serve to restore peace and harmony to ?hi agitated and distracted jKfopln. If instead of relying upon these papers them setves, as enthentic returns, it is sought to deny .h.it the results are spurious and simulated we adrnU U,0",! . 'J"?

R. J. Wai.xer, P..n p ? Governor of Kansas Territory. r bed P Stanto.x, Secretary. Pacific Coast India.* Affairs.?The Com missioner of Indian Affairs received this morn ing full reports from most of the U S. Indian Agencies west of the Rocky Mountains, all of which represent the Government's all airs with the different tribes as being, in the main, in a satisfactory condition. The Agent at Olympia. Waahington Terri tory, transmits an interesting account of the murder of Col. J. N. Ebey, a wealthy and influ ential citizen, at hia residence, on the 12th Au gust, by a predatory band of Northern (British) Indians, whom he represent* as being remark ably warlike, vigorous, sagacious, and well aruied, and as possesiing largo canoes, to carry 100 men, in which they move on such incur sions with great celerity. He suggests the pro priety of stationing one or two small ste m ers in that quarter as a defence against them. From the Utah Buperiutendency, the Com missioner has advices that the Piede Indians arc easily induced to labor, and he advises strenuously that their requests for ploughs and other agricultural and mcchanical instruments be acceded to. He evidently thinks that their disposition to improve their condition by in dustry and civilization should be promptly en couraged by the Government. He complains that the Indians of the Cache Valley are a sore tax on travelers, and dange ous to life and property passing in their way. He recommends immediate attention to their requirements as most important for the future of the emigration. Tub Nebraska Waoon Road?The lute rior Department hav* late advices from the su perintendent of this work. Ita location is com pleted. Ten bridges have been framed and three ereoted. By the time the working season over, temporary bridge* will h*ve been j orected on the northern end, and the road will be passable, generally. This work has been managed so far moat satisfactorily. The New Yoek Electioh.?The New York Lvmms: Pout of yesterday says that the Dem ocrats have carried the State?a consummation hardly to be hoped for, it even yet strike* us. It attributes the defeat of the Republicans? with their 80,tM>0 plurality last je?r-to the fact that that party waa organized only on Na tional issue* and were at sixes and sevens among themselves on all other questions, and to the state of financial matMH.

Before Court No. 3, to-day, the case of Lt. M. E. Hunt (furloughed) was taken up?the Hon. Reverdy Johnson acting as his counsel? and Surgeon G. Maulsby and Lts. W. Smith and J. L. Davis were examined on the Govern ment's behalf. Clerical Promotions ano Appointments. The following promotions and appointments have reoently been made in the Pension Bureau. Vii : R. W. Hamilton promoted to a permanent second class clerkship ($1,400 per annum.) John Calvert promoted to a third class ($1,600 per annum) clerkship. John A. Hunnieutt appointed to a third class temporary clerkship. A. V. Hofer appointed to a second class per manent clerkship. Governor R. J. Walker having obtained a brief leave of absence from his post in Kansas, is expected by his family, we bear, to reach his homo in this city on Saturday next. Great public interest is, of course, manifested in his so soon expected arrival at the seat of Govern ment, as well as such interest among his host of personal friends here as naturally arises from the prominent part be has borne in the late stirring affairs of the Territory.
