We have received advices from Montreal to the 18th inst. They give us particulars of terrible elec- \ tion riots in Montreal; intelligence that the seat of ? government was completely in the hands of the ' insurgents. I These accoun's are funnv and melancholy enough. It is only laat week that we rend violent ) articles in the leudingCitnatliiin papers,on the institu- , tions of thin country, and against our elective t franchise. lmmediatt Iv after these tirades, the , election took place in Montreal, a place about as i large as Brooklyn, and with about two or three r thousand voters ; and that city was at once t iken \ possession of by a thousand rioters, who kept the 8 polls entirely to themselves, notwithstanding the 8 appearance of a large military force, and the reading of the riot act. ??., c Ilere is a pretty state o? iings to bring in coin- x parison with the quiet elections,and their happy re- 1 suits, in this country. In .. is city, with a popul.i- s tion of four hundred thousand, and a vote of ( fifty-one thousand, there is not so much as a single ] head broken, or a link bruised. All is charac- ? teri/.ed with fun, goud humor, and quietness. No ' confusion, no ptislti , and lighting, no more dilli " culty, in fact, than in attending a crowded church ' Vet the Canadian editors would fain make their j readers believe that a democratic election was ono r of the most brutal affairs in the annals of a nation, t These two pictures should be looked upon in "] their true light, and we, therefore, place them he- <! fore the world. J (From Montreal Times. Apr.l 17 ) j First Day.?Yesterday the election Tor this city com- . mcnced. Upon the previous duy the whole of the laborers from the Lachine Canal, numbering about lout) men, were brought into the city for the purpose of carrying Mr. Drummond's election by force ; a large number of men were also brought in from other parts, and some from as great a distance lis Malone, in the United States. The houses of several farmers in the neighborhood of Lachine were broken open upon the previous evening by liodies of armed rutlians, who demanded their fire arms. A ipiaa tity of arms were also brought into the city from the cunal, and an affidavit was sworn on Monday, to the effect that Mr. Tully, the city councillor, boasted that lie bad plenty of powder and ball prepared to use against Mr Nielsen's friends. It has been stated by the opposite pat ty that a body of men from Glengarry were brought in by Mr Molson ; this is a most infamous falsehood, neither from Glengarry or any other place was ono man procured ; and we defy the originators of this story to prove to the con irary in ine morning me jioiii were taaen possession 01 by large bodies of canal men, who drove hack every elector who came forward to tender his vote in favor of Mr. Molson. Magistrates,merchants, and traders of the highest standing, endeavored again and again to enter the polling places, but were hustled and knockeJ down,and their clothes torn from them. At the Viger Market the two parties came into collision several times; and soon alter ten, ahout 140 of Mr. Molson's friends marched down with u number of electors to protect them in giving their votes, but no sooner did they approach the Weigh House, than they were received with volleys ol stones, of which there are large heaps in the neighbourhood, and a rush being made upon them bv about 600 canal men armed with bludgeons,alter a struggle for a tew minutes, during which time many were injured on both sides, and one wo understand mortally wounded by a pistol shot, they were driven back and the poll left in the hands of th? ruffians. After some time, Mr Delisle, the Returning Olticer, the Sheriff, Col. Ougy, and several other gentlemen, rode up and endeavored to obtain order; an arrangement was made for Mr. Molson's voters to go to the back part of the house, while Mr. Drummond's polled in the front ; but no sooner had they left, than the old game was renewed, and Mr. Molson's friends were driven hack. At length it was tuund necessary to obtain the assistance of the military power, and two companies of the 43rd were called out; hut, owing to had management, they were of no me. As soon as a vote was polled for Mr. Molson, the voter was literally stripped by the mob, the clothes being torn from his back, while the troops stood by without power to interfere. In other wards it fared much the same, bauds of canalmen intercepted and kept out the voters, and had proper steps been taken, the election would have hee:i suspended until troops could have been stationed at evury poll to keep back these armed ruffians who are brought in to diror.t the representation of the city. A more disgraceful scene than that of yesterday we never witnessed; the city was throughout the day in the possession of, and at the mercy of, a body of canalmeii ; the citizens were deprived of the liberty of exercising their franchise, by men having nei- I ther stake nor inturest in the country ; valuable lives have been endangered, und peaceable men seriously 1 wounded ; and even at the time we write, the city and the i citizens are without protection. As early as Monday an application was made to Mr Drummonrl, try Mr. .vioison, . to join him in a requisition to the Returning Officer to call out the troops to preserve order at the polling places, but although this requisition was backed by some of his suppoiters, Mr. Drummond refused to do so. The following was the state of the poll at the close Molson, 27i; Drummond, 423. [Krom the Montreal Gazette, April IB ] Ski.omd Da v.?Karly in the morning, requisitions wore 1 made to tlio military authorities from two quarters for ' troops; from the magistrates, for the puqiose of preserving . the general peace of the town ; and from the Returning , Ollicur, with the like, purnoso of preserving the general communications of the different districts with each other, 1 menaced and interrupted by hordes oi ruffians stationary ia the avenues of the polling places, or {patrolling in ' bands, and relieving guard with military punctuality. An ! attempt was made at renewing the polling, but the scenes of the preceding day were renewed witli even more violence. It was a work of danger such as there was no inducement to encounter, for us to keep an eye on all the different polling places ; and to combine all the accounts which have reached us up to this moment, into any thing ' like a consistent whole, is utterly impoatible. But tl e history of one is, troiu all that we can leant the history o( all. At the pollingplacein the Hay Market, the avenues were 1 all, from the opening, beset with crowds of the Dram- ' mondite canal laborers. These were organized under ' leaders, whose signs they obeyed, who recognized Die Iunties who came up to (roll ; if of Molson's party, they lustled and ohstruatcd, and, if they persevered, and even sometimes when they did not, most brutally maltreated 1 them. The military were then called out, and occupied the square in front of the polling-place. The only effect was, to make the Drummondites withdraw to a wider circle. There was no protection except under the bayonets ol the soldiers. Whoever approached the spot, and was hostile, or suspected to he so?indeed,generall} speak ' ing, every one who looked like a gentleman, waa assault- 1 cu, a 1114 Ills CIUIIICI urmiuyru i?y tuiwi)|( lunnimrmi, Him all access to the poll by Mr. Molson's friends effectually 1 debarred. Ah soon as this was known, Mr. Molson 1 resigned under protest against the legality of the election, 1 ap<l withdraw his jlolling clerks und agent-; from the ' booths From within an hour ot the opening of the poll, it may he said that the struggle had ceased, though indivi- j dual electors continued to offer themselves. Whenever this was the case, it was the signal for the renewal of the brutality. In the ward to which we hove just referred, one elector, attempting to get up to the poll, was thrown down, his clothes literally torn from his hark, and lie would reitainly have been murdered but that the soldiery rescued him, though not without inflicting some severe hiyonet wounds on his assailants. The absolute impossibility of clearing the polls without military execution, which must have hcen attended, not merely with the entire suspension of the election, hut with the shedding ol orients of blood both of the Innocent and 4he guilty, by indiscriminate tiring.must have been evident to every one The polls being deserted by Mr. Molson's friends, mi l open to all who chose to go up in Mr Dnimmond's name, a great number of persons went up in the course of tinday whose names were, of course, recorded without i|ucstion in his favor. The lollowing were the numhrrs drc.Iar d by the Drummond party, at Ihe shutting up of the polling places at live o'clock:? Dri'mwoxd. Moi sox.

The words charged in the indictment are those which iro imputed to thn -leieudant's wife, having used them , oncoming Mrs. lluhind. " I saw you in Mrs. Bourne's | tailor witli the box (a box of silver which had been , .toleu on the said 3bth of December liom u Mrs Bourne,) , n your bunds. I saw you suddenly throw down the box, | mil catch up somethiugin your apron, and suddenly dart rum the room. And utterwards I law you come tiptoe lawn stuirs, and act suspiciously, and then Mrs Journe discovered that she had lost some silver, and for ny own part, there is no doubt 011 my own mind that yon Hive stolen them, and I w ill tuke my outh of it'' ( rhis, gentlemen, is the allsgitiun put forth in the in- c lictrucnt. The circumstances in this casu are, that upon s he 1st January and un to the 7th February, there existed , 1 little unpleasant feeling between those two ladies, who ? ived in the same house, and it is unnecessary on this trial j o introduce what these difficulties were. Mrs. Jcfl'ords 1 >wed Mrs llaland a draft, and out of this transaction , ;row this diiticulty, and then Mrs. Jelfords commenced , his attack, accusing iny client of stealing silver. The , duiutilf ill this case is a respectable man, and of un ( ilcmished reputation. The defendant is, also, respect- ( ible ; but there is nothing in this to justify the prouiulgaiou of a foul slander 011 the part of his wile against the , bine, character and reputntion ot a defenceless and re- | ipcetuble lady, whose reputation she has sougtn to blast , lud injure. When she lirst was called upon to state whut tharges she had to make agaiust Mrs Roland, she did state hem, and then went to the upper police and got out a | warrant agaiust this respectable woman. Mrs. Kulaud , was brought before the police, and ox investigation was at j JUCJ discharged In this case there was something more | valuotde to the character than in ordinary actions of , ilauder. This lady sought to make a victim of an innocent anil helpless woman who has two children ; and the 1 dander, under all the circumstances, was of a most ng- | ;ravated and heinous cliaracter. The damages she bus mstained after the investigation at the police oflice, she would have looked over, ami allnu-r.l th?. matter tn ,lmi, I lad she not continued systematically to slander und nalign my client, by which sho exhibits the most wanton | malice. The case, gentlemen, alfecta the domestic and | private circles, and the moralr of society, and I ask you , ? look at the entire circumstances as husbands, as "athers, and to award such dumnge* as will compensate die honor and the reputation ol an injured lady for tho | words that were spoken. Mrs. Mart Bocmnic, sworn?Kxamined by Mr Ttaitr? I know thu parties; my husband is a ship news roller- I lor; I know Mrs. Kulund; 1 never heard anything bad i about Mrs. ltuland save what I heard sail by Mrs Job lords ; on the 7th of February I heard Mrs.t Jellbnls say that she saw Mrs. ltuland in my room near the box which contained articles that were stolen, end saw her roll up something in her apron, and then Raw her go into an adioining room, which Mrs Kulund occupied; and that she then saw her come on tiptoe down stuirs; I then asked Mrs. Jeffords it she was sure of this, and Mrs. ltuland aid she would go into any Court and provn it; I lost Rome liver out of my trunk; this was about the :10th of Deceml>er, and the conversation occurred in February; when my husband came home 1 called him and Mrs. Jeffords logether, and she repeated the same words in his presence; :he words were spoken deliberately, and not iu the heat if passion. Counsel here put various interrogatories hs to wi'lesses' impression of the motive of Xlrs. Jeffords, which were objected to.
