Elrctios is Nokth Carolina.?To-day the lection for Governor and members of the Legislature takes place In North Carolina. Thedemc. cratic candidate for Governor is the present Incumbent, John W.

The main iastie iu the canvass is the question of of ad valorem taxation on slave property?Pool being in favor of ad valorem and Ellis against it.

They were escorted to the Baltimore depot in the former city by the Philadelphia Washington Greys, and before before parting company with his military friends Capt. Ells, worth addressed them, acknowledging the distinguished kindness of which his company had the recipient, notwithstanding a slight clrcumatanre of which far more had been said than deserved. No where, be continued, had the Zou?vps been more considerately cared for than in the city of Brotherly Love. On the arrival of the train ct Baltimore it w?s greeted by a salvo from heavy ordnance in the hands of a Baltimore artillery company, and very soon the visiting company alighted and bees me the guests of the Independent Greys of Baltimore. They will continue In Haiti />?<> Hll c?-I ? ? ? tin cnuiaiy uo'iiiog, wtien they will pay this city a visit, gi ve a specimen of tbeir drill, and return again to Baltimore the same eveniug to take the cars for Harrisburg and Pittsburg, en route for Cincinnati and St. Louis.

Ihe Great Eastern arrived od Cape May at about 8 o'clock Tuesday morning She had 2,087 passengers aboard. Most of thr? steamboats which accompanied her dcwn tumid hack when ol1 Bedloe's Island, after giving flttinj: parting solutes. The ex itemeut on her departure was evt-n more intense th-rn that wh.cb accompanied her arrival at New York One of the sttamboat* at coiiponied the steamer to the bar. \\ h?'?i cr< >s:t; the bar the engines of the Great Eastern w-'? slacked The bar was safely crossed at biah Jitor at ! > ** ??* - * * ?... .. ..Muuira i iviunaay evening, the steamer having twn feet to spare under her keel The steamer then ft off on her voyage at full s^>eed. the bund playing several livelv airs On her arrival at Saody Hook tbe great SO tun anchor was secured for sea service. There was gre-t d.rtt- uity in getting it up The hook of the cat block uav ng been broken it had to be replaced The capstan was too small for the cable, the slack cf which was pulled out by the weight of the anchor. This jarred tne bow vtry heavily ebout a dozen times. The sea wss smooth, but the ship bad a slight though graceful roll, wbich sent many of the passengers to tt>e basins. At %% o'clock land was lost Bight of in a haze; the Highland Lights were last seen The vovage was commenced auspkiously, with a splendid moonlight. It was not until their appetites w?re sharpened that the passengers found reason to 'ompluiu, but wLenavery meagre supply of food was put before them tuey grumbled with a great unanimity, in consequence of tne cock of one of the compartments having been left open on Sunday night after the ship v* as trimmed, the ice house ana store rooms were flooded The meat* were cold aud of but little variety,and the delicacies were ruined While grumbling about the fo-jd, another serious matter catue up for consideration. At 11 o'clock water had given out, and none could be obtained at Irs* than ten cents a glass. Many used liquor 2nd fftn?lH#r?KU A r. V..~ " , -?...uiuuarunm wci idc result. A third aggravation was experienced in the sleeping accommodations, whiru were on a par with tbe otcers. Five hundred slept on the d< ek, on cfleap straw mattresses, aiid during tbe night tbey were burned withcind. rsand drenchrd with ram. Fortunately, there were ouly a hundred women present. On the arrival of the Great Eastern at Cape May a series of indignation resolutions were unanimously adopted by the passengers, censuring the directors for the singular conduct of the omclals towards them. A special dispatch to tbe New York Tribune gives the following act ountof the Great Eastern's excursion: *CoLC*Brs Hocse, Cape Island, July 31.?Tbe excursionists by the lireat Eastern arrived oil tbis point at seven o'clock ou Tuesday morning, tbe steamer having, through design or mismanr.geuient, run about thirty miles nut of her course. The atmosphere was still and stifling, and after a n:gbt of horrors thev rushed eagerly upon tbe propeller Shriver, the first boat brought aside, and In other steamers Nearly tbe whole company, numbering about t,000, were landed on the ourn\r\tr ' Without exception, tbe excursionists are disgusted and Indignant with tLe trip and its management throughout From the moment of starting they were made the prey of the most reckless avarice, and la no single instance, so far as I am Informed, were the simplest rights of the ticketholders regarded. 1 There was no accommodation whatever for baggage in all the ample store-rooirs of tbe ship, and articles were left loosely 011 deck. The grossest favoritism was shown in the disposition of the state-rooms. Huri ladies were tbe victims of Imposition in regard U? them. No definite information could be bad of anybody, and the responsibility was shifted from oue !o another, until the passenger, In despair, gave hitnstlf up to discomfort ' A large number of ladies, and nearly all the tbe gentlemen slept or straggled on rude mattresses on tbe decks in dirt and disorder. and were exposed to a smart storin of rain before tbe bour of waklog. Those who Lad state rooms were crowded together, and ? fit red from terrible heat and the great rocking of ttie vessel. In tne morning It was impossible, without bribery, to obtain water for washing, or the plainest article of the toilet The reporters were, with one exception, roughed with tue r?st The fortunate exception spent the night in a hen-coi n aii eaort was made to provoke music (nmu L>< dworth's b ind for dancing, but after a few melancholy (trains, the u.usictaus refuted further discourse unless they were paid twenty-five dollar* " A lighted clg.?r set a mattreaa on fire in the middle of the night, and the rigging wu endangered Tbe'e seemed to be no d.scipiiue whatever among the ofllers of tbe ship. Tbe rudder cbaias broke, and for nearly half an boar tbe steamer was guided by tbe engines alone Tbe wheels were frequently deserted "The restaurant was one grand swindle. It was given oat. as soou as the people Ml down to tbe first supper, that tbe most necessary a.tides bad run out; and only heavy fees to tbe waiters, after long waiting, r roduced any food at all Hracklsb water brought, in some cases, twenty-five csn's a glass, and tbe confusion and filth were simply revolting. There was not s single expression of pleasure. ' The general Indignation took tbe form of a formal m< etiug on deck this morning Mr Wai Fulner a- ted as chairman, and Dr John Howe as secretary, both of Mew York. A series of bitter resolutions were passed, snd obtained a large number of influential signatures. They denouuce tbe ex< ursion m a swindle, and the whole arr*n{feuirnia ss contemptibly disgraceful.

Ac., Ac. 1 was off at an early hour this morning, flahlng tackle In band, to try my luck after brook trout. Two miles of a laborious walk over a mountain top ridge?tbe apology for a road being shock, lngly broken?brought me to tbe banka of Snowy Creek, a famous trout stream. Albeit but for my experience in earlier life in traversing prairle? covered with tough grrsses waist high, and swamps knee deep with water, and spongy sur ftcesoll, my expedition of the day would have paid no dividend whatever. The stream Is a iwifl one and the tfnut wi/iontiw *? * J if any of the Siar't city reader* hereafter easay to fish it, 1 advise them by all means not to venture the task in patent leather Congress shoes, as I foolishly did this morning. But to come armed with a sharp hatchet to make alder-bush bridges in an instant, and to open, as occasion may require, space in the overhanging dense shrub foliage, through or over which to throw the rod, line and bait into the pools of the stream in which the trout use. Though muddied amazingly and tattered not inconsiderably,! managed to secure a string of twenty beauties In about three hours after first unwinding the reel, fishing (traversing) up the waters for a distance of about half a mileI dined, by-the-by, at the farmhouse of a very intelligent and clever mountaineer, David Freeland by name, who had resided on the bank of Snowy creek for twenty years, until he has a larvf. rlMinl hrm n ?vi; Luuuunauir in an * sion, to which now and then summer boardera from the cities resort, who are fond of exercise with the rod and line. lJisciple* of old Isaak Walton and families cottoning to substantial country living, while away to escape such a state of the thermometer as now prevails in Washington, will find hltn worth cultivating. 1 thus return my thanks for his frank and unexpected courtesy and hospitality. From him 1 learned much concerning ^he agricultural capabilities and methods and modes of his native glades region. While it is difficult for the farmer in them to realize half a fair remuneration in raising corn, rye, oats, and buckwheat hourish here astonishingly, and j>otatot s yield between three and four hundred bushels to the acre. Wheat has rarely been sown here, this year paying far better than ever before?from twelve to fifteen bushels to the acre. For summer grazing of horned stock, the ?" .in.1irn.M-l " n - ?uc nui iu over ? iLIP yl(iLi of timothy, red-top, and clover being enormous, without fertilization. These ^rtss"s spread into t^e timbered land* around the open fields very quickly, where the cattle carry the seed in grazing "in Uie range " Sleighing la not unfrequently good here for five consecutive months iu tUe year; and it rarely happens that any month passes with out experiencing (here) palpable and visible frost The mercury in the thermometer here hovers at about 75 degree Fahrenheit through the sum. mer, except when Jai k Frost sends it down occasionally for a single night. 1 am now writing in an unpretending but cowi fortablc couutry tavern, at Portland, late Cran* berry Summit, upon the head waters of the Monongalia river From the brow of the hill juat south of the railroad here, one enjoys a msgnltlcent view of the valley of the Salt Lick, a uiounain glade of exceedingly picturesque proportions ! Tuat hill would make a grand location, indeed, for a mountain-ton rp?nrt f?.r f/?iv-? ? , ?. uvm ?uc tlUCI who must flee to some inch refuse in July and August, to escape feeling in those monttia like luckless curs compelled to trot around with shaking sides and swollen tongue banging nut. As yet there seems to be no admixture of any description of foreign society?either native or otherwise?among the population here ; all being apparently rough and hearty mountaineers. Timber-getting is the employment of those too poor to Live altogether by farming?pipe staves, locustpins for ship building, tanner's bark and hoop poles being the articles they send to market These are shipped in very large quantities from this station ; making a trade of no little profit to the region, the results of which appear to be carefully husbanded and devoted to the Improvement of homesteads tpringing op in the glade* and mountain sidr*s and tops on all hands around. The tinr.e approaches for the arrival of ?he accommodation train going West?at 9 SO a. m (of Monday morning)?so 1 must close my portfolio, and prepare to be t>ff. Immediately on leaving Cranberry Summit we | entered upon a portion of tbe road embracing extensive rock cuts, and beavy embankments over short but deep gulches or gorges, md therefore exhibiting many fine panoramas of mountain scenery. A fine tunnel, too, was close at hard. The country on both sides of tbe road, though of course mountainous, appears to be fast coming into cultivation; and the varied crops uj'on it?dead ripe rve, oats just showing a disposition to htad, buckwheat beginning to bloom, and sombre-headed timothy fields?form charming contrasts with the rich hues of the surrounding foliage. The f>rade rapidly descends, and tunnels are frequently traversed; all thoroughly walled and arched overhead with brick. In nothing is the superiority of tbe construction of this great work more conspicuous than in the substantial manner In which arcid^uts from falling in of its tunnels are guarded agulnst by meatis of solid ui&soury. In half a dozen miles from Cranberry Summit We strike the >ait Lick, (head waters of the Cheat river.) and rourking along down by its side, tbe mountains again rear their heads souie hundreds of feet above the level of the rail track, appearing to grow higher as we descend lower from the regions of the clouds. Less signs of cultivation are now around us, the country being far more broken than upon the glades proper region, which we left a short time since. The flr tree of the far North is common here, and its draperv of dark green foliage and its graceful proportions are exquisite additions to the beauty of tbe momentarily changing pictures flitting before my eyea. For two miles ere reaching Rowlrsburg, where we strike tbe Cheat river for tbe llrst time, looking from tbe hindmost car's back window, I have exquisite views. The Salt Lick runs aiong. leaping over rocks and loose stones at but a little below tbe level of the rail track, at ita side suarp mountain tops forming tbe immediate back ground of both. Tbe number of curves hera almost cheats the observer into the belief that be has been journeying under the mountain tops, Instead of around them. Cheat river is crowed fnr ? -MV I?l?? time here, over a substantial covered bridge. Shortly after leaving Rowlesburg we are fairly In the mfcjjniflcnt Cheat river scenery, a view of which, from about a mile from Rowlesburg, la worth the trouble and coat of a Journey of thoomndi of miles Last night It rained heavily , hfreabout.and Cheat river is consequently swollen- t adding tbe pictures even more effect than usual The train stopped for a few moments at the celebr.ite.i high tnisei work, having an altitude of more than VUi feet above Its base In a deep gulch below. The paaaengers left the cars j and studied for a minute the combined wonders of art and nature there to be seen as, perhaps, nowhere else in the world. The river ran at the 1 base of the mountain, apparently 5U> feet below the rail track here, and the longest-armed passenger foiled of strength to cast a stone into Its waters, though to the eye la so close proximity ss i that one might conveniently spit into them.
