The Result of the Elections, APRIL 13, 1847. The Election in New York. Triumph of the Whigs. The going down of yesterday's sun concluded the charter election in this city for the year 1&47, and witnessed the complete triumph of the whigs. It will be seen from the returns published below inat the whigs have elected their Mayor und ; Alms House Commissioner, and a majority in both branches of the Common Council. It appears that Mr. Browntll has been repudiated, and Mr. Brady will be our next Mayor.? We cannot say that we are at all surprised at the result, for we expectod it for some time past. The enormous increase of our city taxes, fftirhlfmr with tli/> fvltlivr r?nn/itltnn a! t Ki *? streets during the year past, have had more j influence than any thing clue in bringing about this result. Indeed, we muy suy that the elec- j tion turned on the question of city reform. We , warned the democrats in season that the course i they were pursuing would inevitably lead to their j defeat at this election, but they were headstrong, i and c trcd for neither the warnings of any one or the threats of their opponents. They have now ( reaped what they sowed. We believe the city of New York has seldom or ever been the scene of a more quiet or peaceable election than the one just concluded. With the exception of some difficulty in the 4th, 6th and 17th wards, everything, we believe, was conducted peaceably and quietly throughout the city. In the first of these wards, a j<erson named Ellis, from Williamsburgh, was arrested for being concerned in an arrangement to introduce some 25 or 50 illegal voters from Williamsburgh, with the | understanding that a similar number should go I from the 4th ward and vote in Williamsburgh. In the 17th ward, a ballot bo,x, with some 500 ballots in it, was destroyed. With these excep- 1 tions, tho election was conducted peaceably, and in a manner that reflects credit on the city. 1 Now, that the whigs are elected,we confident- 1 iy loo.v ior a rriurui iu uur niuiuci}>ni govern. < ment. They have been elected on theexpresB un- | dcrstanding that they will keep the streets , clean, and reduce the taxes. Jfthey act tip to the j professions they made before the election, they ; inay be re-elected next year. If they do not, | they will "walk the plank" as surely as their op- I ponentn have done this year. Mark this ! Annexed ure the returns, so far as we could J gulher them last night.

In fact, the disagreeable concomitants of election day, the nob# of boisterous men, and the fumes of bad liquor and worse tobacco, were not made palpable to the ensee in moat parts of the city. The whig candidate for Mayor, F. B. Strvker, soems to be nt home in the hearts of the voters on all sides, and walked quietly over the course, carrying with him six out of nine wards. The eighth and ninth giving but small majorities against hitn. The fifth, of course, goes at ail times the regular democratic nomination. The majority for Stryker, for Mayor, in eight warde, is 1738 The Fifth, yet to he heard from, will probably reduce this 360, or to 1375, which will no doubt be very nearly the result. The new board of supervisors will probably be whig to a man, aome of the wnrds having elected democratic aldermen and whig supervisor The Aldermen elected are as follows Whin in Balica ; democrats In Roman W4,n. 1 ?

Tbe gatherings at head quarters, after the counting of the votes had commenced, were indicative of the state of affairs ut the polls. At National Ilall, the whig quarters, the greatest hilarity waa observable, and the friendly greetings ot tbe laborer# hot from tbe political held, told at a glance how well aseured they were that their woik had been effective. The citizens came in from all quarters, and the Mall wa? found far too strait for the numbers who docked together to ?eer 'i?e rwpone read bv 'he committee appointed to receive and announce them. But things were ! quite different at the Potirth NVnrd Hotel, where ! the democratic committee met to receive and an- j uounce to their brethren the result of the day's do- i ings. Up to u late hour at night they had received returns from hut two ward-, and were waiting patiently, pencil in hand, to note down the next triumph. It seems their messengers knew how unwelcome visiters were, when hearers of bad news, and so wisely left the gentlemen composing the committee to learn the mournful tidings as best they might. At about half past , 10 o'clock a procession was formed in front of National Hall, and preceded by a band of music, II *? ?5. I J mareneu away lO tail upon ra?jui .auyivcr, suu on their wuy was lighted up by numerous tar barrels and other combustible materials, which uncounted urchins procured, cither honestly or otherwise, from wharves, stores, new buildings, and elsewhere. As fur as we heard, there was no serious fighting, and it w ould appear that Brooklyn has quietly chosen whom she would have to rule over her; and in a quiet way, taken the steps to effect the necessary induction of said rulers into office. Thus we go up, up, up, and then down, down, down. The Albany Election. Our telegraphic report received last eveuing, states that William Parmlee, the whig candidate, was yesterday elected Mayor of Albany by a lurge majority. Our report reads that " the whigs retain their ascendancy in the city." Another report says, "the city election passed off very quietly. Mr. Parmlee, the whig and anti-temperance candidate elect, has about 2700 majority over Gould, the temperance candidate, and Hendrickson, the democratic nominee. A large majority of whig aldermen arc returned to the City Council." The election in Albany and the election in this city were at the same time, the pollB opening and closing, we believe, at the same hour; yet by the extraordinary power of the lightning line we received the result in Albany, a city one hundred and fifty miles distant from our office, before wo ascertained which party had succeeded in New York.

Tut Problem w the Age Solved.?We dewire to direct the attention of our readers to the long and interesting document, published on the outside of this day's paper, under the above caption.

The Venezuelian editors, however, have '.he advantage of our home writers, inasmuch as they back up their positions by quoting from the various purty journals of this country. Trade with Mexico.?We learn that a mor- j chant vessel, the Petersburg, is up for Vera Cruz, i She is to be the pioneer in the trade to be opened under the Americano-Mexican tariff of Mr. Se- j crctnry Walker. Another veswel will soon he idvcrtised for the same port. Spring Trade.?The Albany Journal of the I2th has the following paragraph :? Large quantities of merchandize ure arriving from New York, aud being forwarded West on the cars. But Llio pressure Is too great for the limited facilities of the roads. Only a comparatively small auantity of that arriving will seek transportation by this mode It must necessarily await the opening or the oanal, an event which cannot be expected before the 2Sth, and may not lake place until the 1st of May.

If sach a bill do not draw a large house, we are much mistaken. We hope that we may be able to give a critical notice of the new play. " Wleamuth k Co." in a day or two. Tho preseure on our columns for a ftw day* past has been bo great that we have been obliged to omit a proper notice of this new play, as well ss other matters, which ws shall find room for very soon. Bowebt Tmsatse.?The " Naiad Queen"?the "Somnambulist,1' and the great drama of 11 Brian Borolhtne," compose the bill offered at the Bowery theatre this evening. This bill needs no praiss. It speaks for Itself, and will afford a fund of amusement and entertainment, that will no doubt be eagerly enjoyed. We must inform the patrons of the Bowery thattuU is the last night but one of tb?i ' Naiad tjueen.'' It muit bo withdrawn, we are informed, after to-morrow evening. Bowmv Cmccs.?'This evening's receipts of the circus are set apart for the benefit of Klfasser Smith, (Joseph Smith, of the Half Wny House.) and that they will be large, we are sure from the fact that there is an extraordinary attractive bill put forth Oossin and Kemp, the 1 two great clowns, we perceive, will perform, as will also Mr. I arroll and Mies Madlgun. The negro Hereunder*, Mr. Howes. Master Nixon. Miss Jesselrne. anil the remainder of the oompauy, are determined to do their best. A pleasant evening can be spent fn the circus this jvenlng. Mnsleal. Italian Ovaba.?Donlsettl'a opera of Lucrezln Borgia will be performed, for the fourth time, this evening at i'almo's Open House, with the original cast. All who have heard this beautiful opera, will be glad to hoar it again this evening. Of Its merits, as well as of the manner In whicli it i* performed, we have already expressed our opinion Wo consider it sufficient to say, that It wlUbo repeated this evening. Cubists'* .Minitxbi.s present a number of pleasing and delightful negro melodies for this evening's enteruicnt. Their performances and respective abilities arc now well known, and rooulr^little eulogy. They leave here aftor this week, and those who have not as yet heurd them would do well to pay a visit to Mechanics"' Hall. New Italia* Company.?We understand that the company of Italian Opera singers which arrivod yesterday in the Sutton, from Havana, will appear at the Fork Theatre on Thursday night, and after that they intend giving a few concerts in this city, previooa to thoir leaving for Boston, where they go to fill an engagement.? They aro the most finished and excellent company that has over visited this city, and we have no doubt that the career before them, will be a most brilliant one.

We understand that the panic diffused among the Mexicans in the castlo. lest they might experience tba same disastrous fate which had fallen upon the city, principally contributed to its surrender. Au awful panic has now spread over the people. The loss of the city and castle, combined with the last viotory of less than 4000 men over 30.000, at Bucna Vista, has spread consternation over that infatuated nation.

The Tillage of Modcllln, ten miles from Vera C'ruz, in the direction of AlTarado, had already been occupied by our troops, had ] quietly submitted, and met with the most liberal treat- I jucnt on the part of our troops.

He leaves no hostile foe behind him. No very j formidable opposition Is expected at Puonto Nacionalo, (National Bridge, 30 miles from Vera Crus.) 1 nor even at Jalapa. (68 utiles.) The General will push ' on to the healthy table lands between the bridge and Jalapa ; thence, we presume, unless unexpected obstivclos occur, to the capital. It was said that Gen. Vega had two or three thousand cavalry with him, on tbe | rood to Mexico. One problem Is, will there be any government at Mexico capable of making peace ; for, as the condition of thiugs now stands in Mexico, there may be difficulty in finding an executive to treat for peace than for them to carry on the war. It was reported at the last accounts that Santa Anna was advancing to tbe capital. There is no absolute certainty of this.

Uurfey, , torn Cam&rgo, last evening, I have boon able to gather he following Gen. Taylor left Monterey on the 16th | nbtaut, in company wltn Bragg'i Light Artillery, (six i deoes), May's squadron of dragoons, under Capt. Ore- < torn, and the balance of the First Mississippi Regiment, 1 [the latter now numbering about 250 strong.) to oom? iown and clear the roads ; but, meeting with Col. Cur- ] its and his uommand at Marin, with the train going up, ae sent the train on from that point without an esoorl, i ind took Col. Curtls's command, which consisted of the rhlrd Ohio Regiment and three oompaniee of Virgi- J al&as. with him, and started in pursuit of Gen. Urrea, who, it was stated, had gone to a plaoe called Catarita, ind at last aeoounte, they say Gen. Taylor had got within Ave miles of him ; but, as Crrea's force must be prin:ipally cavalry. I think it rather doubtful of hlsovertating him. Colonel Marshall has sinoe arrived at Camar;o from Monterey, with his regiment of Kentucky Caralry?the balance of the army remaining at Agua Vueva. Major Mike Cbev&llcr arrived at Camargo on the 'J3d nstant. with about 300 Texans, who havo suffered very nucb in crossing the prairies, for want of forage ana rater, there being no grass on the prairie. The men Differed severely, and tney lost about fifty horses, fur ?ant of forage and water?and many of the men are in sad condition. There is no further news from above. We started from tills place this morning, a train of ibout 60 wagons, for Cam&rgo, with 130 extra mules, bong two to each wagon, escorted by Major Stokes's and wo companies of North Carolinians, which has taken all he troops from this place, with the exception of two oinpauies of the .Massachusetts Regiment, under Capt. Vubster. (Davis's company.)one of which is stationed in be I'laza, and the other in Kort Parades, with Capt. Morhant's company of Artillery at Kort Brown, the whole if the force at this point. 1 understand the balance of hose regiments (North Carolina and Massachusetts) ire off tne Brasos. but tbey have uot boon able to land, in account of the heavy blows.

We are to have a new Quarter-master here on tho 1st if next month?Captuiu Webb, who relieves Lieutenant Simmons of that office, he having acted here for some ;ime past as Ordnance officer, Commissary, and Quarternaster. Wo are all quiet hero, and many families are returning ,o their houses in this place. The Mexicans do not yet thiuk of quitting fighting, us hey say tbey fought w itli Spain fifteen years. 1 tell hem in less thun that many days, we will have Vera Jruz, and perhaps the city of Mexico. BaAtot, March 39,1847. We learn from above, that so soon as Gen. Taylor had >ut matters to right at his enoampment at Agua Nuova, le left with two ooinpuuiosof Bragg's Artillery and Col. May's squadron of dragoons, to look for Gen. Urrea and lis forces. Gen' Taylor met Col. Curtis on tho morning of the 6th.n oar Marin. The latter had about 1300 iufantry, imposed of the Ohio and Virginia volunteers, one ooui>ony of dragoons, and two pioces of artillery. General Jrrca left Marin the evening before; he was waiting to itt.firk (liirtisTrf train hut tindincr old Rouirh and Read? idvanciug in Ills roar be vGmoittd to Cadeudo. about 'JO niles distant from .Marin. Gen. Taylor followed in purmlt the next morning, taking with him all Curtis's comnand but one oompany, which accompanied the train ;o Monterey. From a spy that was captured by one of the Texas Rangers, it was found that Urreu had about 6003 cavalry and Raucheros. They have captured about two hunJLrod wagons, a large proportion of which they burnt, carrying off the iron work, and murdering the teamiters. Wo have a rumor that Gen. Taylor has written a letter to Camargo, stating that ho has got Urrea hemmed in. so as to make it impossible for the Mexican General to retreat without giving battle. If the latter should provo true, it require* out little foresight to predict the result. I am happy to inform you that our wounded at Buena Vista are ail doing well: but few wounded with artillery; Lhoy havo generally fallen hack into the ranks, and are ready to march upon Ban Luis. Haltillo, where the Mexican wounded wero carried, is t perfect charnel bouse, a* they wore much out up with )ur grape and canister. THE VOLUNTEERS AT BUENA VISTA. The effect of disclpllno in an army wax strongly lllusrated at the battle of Buenu Vista. The New Orleans Picayune says: In a conversation which we bad with an intelligent >fflcer who arrived yesterday from iiuena Vista, we earnod that the regiments of volunteers whose offlocrs lad taken pains to drill and exercise them in the art of war. distinguished themselves throughout the battles if the 33d and 33d of February. Of the Arkansas cavalry two companies (Captain Pike's and Captain Preston's) were well drilled, and fought with dlstluotion. 1 hat those companies which tied during the engagement were >o disorderly that nothing whs expected of them. Of the two lndiaua regiment* in the battle, one was well disciplined, and fought bravely ; the other was not, and gave way in the commencement of the tight. The Ken t u/?lf v fiukt it nd [)iiffid'> Mliiifiiuihiii roirimnnt. trtir sell imp uritli I Lane's Indiana regiment, and baker and BihsoU's Illinois troops, wore wi ll officorcd.and conducted themselves with the greatest gallantry and tlrmiiees. There was no accounting for the different conduct of the two regiments from Indiana, except upon the score ol discipline. They were both from the same Si ate, and appareuWy of the same staple, yet Bowie's regiment left their brave 0 jmmander, who, when deserted by the body of his men, selected some score of such as would follow him, and asked permission to tight in the ranks of the Mississippi reflment, where they did good service, till the close of the attle. An iucident is related of Col. Howies which excited no little Interest in the army. The morning after the bat tie. as Bowles was. passing over the Held, the Mississippi regiment rose voluntarily and presented arms, in token of tboir sense of the compliment he paid them in seeking their ranks when deserted by the mass of his own regiment. Col. Davis, whose oonduct, as was that of his oominand. was the admiration of the army, we are glad to learn is doing well. His wound is painful, and may possibly lame hiin for life ; but no apprehensions are entertained of a f..t 1 issue. Col. Mchce and Lieut. Col. Clay were both stripped by the enemy, as were such men and officers as fell Into their hands. It Is to be hoped that the compunlss of volunteers which deseited the Held will be particularly singled out. so that their misconduct may not cast a stigma upon the great body or this description of foroe, which certainly enacted wonders.
