We give below the returns of the charter election in this city, Brooklyn, Albany, Ac , yesterday, as complete as it was possible to obtain them up to the hour of our going to press. The vote in many of the wurds was extreme ly close?almost more so than on any previous occasion?and up to a late hour last night it was uncertain which party had gained the ascendancy. The democrats claimed the election ot their candidate for Mayor, and also a majority Of the members of the Common Council; and the whig* did the same. It will be seen by the table below, which is as accurate as could be obtained, that Messrs. Havemeyer and Leonard, the democratic candidates for Mayor and Alms House Commissioner, are elected. The political complexion ot the Common Council is somewhat doubtful. The Election In New York Cliy. MAYOR. ALMI HOUIC COM. , M ii i ... i . ? . . ' . WHin DAM. N.REP'.SM. YYMIO OEM. Wm V.

One man was knocked senseless by a stone, which struck him on the head, laying open the scalp; another had his arm broken, which having been set, he returned to the scene of action, and after having several times expressed his opinion in the most impressive manner, and with any quantity of epithets, was prevailed upon by his Iriends to retire. At another time, three dastardly young men assailed an old man, without the slightest provocation, and were thumping him most lustily, when a good natured and gentlemanly looking man stepped up, and planting his fist under the ear of one of them, felled him to the ground, and broke up the row. There were some five or six imutet only?something remarkable lor that ward. The police were actively engaged to preserve order, though had there been a general outbreak it would have required more than ihe whole force of the pol'ce ol the ward to quell the riot. In the Fourth word, there was a pretty good indication of a riot at one time; but the police of the ward, aided by a detachment from the Tenth, prevented an outbreak, and things went off with only a storm of loud words. In the Eighteenth ward there was a slight brush, which was immediately quelled, and one teliow, who had col>nized from the Twelfth ward, was marched oil' in double quick time to the atation house, for offering to vote illegally. In the Fourteenth ward quite a controversy occurred between two sons of the Green Isle, as to whether Mr. Brady was an Irishman. One ol them contended that every Irishman should vote for him (Brady) because he whs one ol their own countrymen. The other was not altogether satisfied that Mr. Brady drew his first breath in Erin, and would not vote for him until lie could know to his own satisfaction. At this time a man passed by, when the friend of Mr. B accosted hint; and asked him if Brady was not an Irishman The fellow understood the game, and replied, " if he is not, his father was a d?d Irishman." Ttiis contemptuous way ol speaking of the Irish perfectly satisfied the doubting one, and he immediately gave a hurrah and a vote tor Brady. About the time the returns from the different wards of the Mnvnrnltv ticket were exneeted. Tammnny Hall was lighted up, and the democrats assembled to pass away the while in speaking, but hud only begun, when a general tracaa broke out: the speaker was pulled trom the stand, and, for his own safety, made all hafi lo get out of the Hall. Tne crowd folio-' ed lum, and several of them falling, a lar-re nirnV r fell, and piled up at the foot of iN .-'airs, a general fight ensued, during whicn the lights of the hall were all put out Order was again restored, and things afterwards went on quietly; but Tammany was amot g the dark places. In all the other wards, the election was more than ordinarily quiet, the contending parties apparently not having the time to spare to commence a battle, lor fear they might thereby lose some ground.

Later from ihs Brazils?By the arrival of the bark Kathleen, Captain Drebert, from Rio Janeiro, we are placed in possession of files ot the Corrtio Mereantil, and Jornal do Comercio, to the 23d Frbruarv. We find but little of interest in them. The Emperor of Brazil was still in the provinces, visiting the various interesting n*rip and estates of the country. On the 6(h of February, a plot was discovered at, the town of J'eloias, for a general rising of the negro population. who intended butchering all the whites on theTih. Fonunsiely it v/us put down without any Iocs of life. From Buenos Ayres, accounts to the 7th of February hao been received at Rio. The only n< ws given in the Jornul do Comtrcio consists of a private letter from Dut nos Ayres, recapitulating the difficulties and troubles of that distr cted countiy, without, however, saying anything about the actual state o! things on that date. There were no American vessels of war at Rio on the 23J. New Code ok Procedure.?The commissioners on practice and pleadings have had passed through ihe Legislature, a temporary ac', entitled a nipplement to the code of procedure. This act has been very judiciously passed and will tend to considerably facilitate the in- , troduction of the new law, before it goes into ojieradon. The act takes effect immediately, with the exception of section 2. We shall be curious to see how it works. thi Frctteh Btfoiatbn-The Lmdon and American PreM. The French revolution of 18i8, and the down* fall of Louis Philippe, continue to be topics of conversation and discumion, in the public press and in private, over the whole of the civilized world. Tne magnitude and the importance of the results which must necessarily llow from them, on the future history and well beiny of the human race, entitle that revolution to be enumerated as first in the great events that have occurred in the world, and one that will open to nations a new career, which will change their deatiny and direct man towards that great ultimate end which it is the design of Providence he shall attain. Scarce a month has elapsed, and the overthrow of despotism has marched with a sure and steady progress; and governments formed by force, and supported by oppression and fraud, are scatte red like leaves before the autumn blast. Kings, ministers, and courtiers, grant concessions, or abdicate and fljr, and the whole of Christendom resounds with the cry of liberty. Oaward the principle of self-go%ernment strides, and ere many months are past, the whole of Europe?down-trodden, oppressed Europe, which has for ages been the victim of tyranny and oppression?will be embraced^ within the ample lolds of republicanism, and the people freed from the shackles which so long have bound them. We have already referred to the enthusiasm and the demonstrations of delight with which the intelligence of the recent revolution in France was hailed in this republic, and the cordial greeting which the people of the United States have extended to their self-emancipated brethren of France. The feeling of joy and congratulation was sincere and true; for the event which called it forth brings to mind the long struggle and the throes and agonising suffering which our own country endured to accomplish a similar end, and free this fair land from the yoke of monarchy. It is now our purpose to contrast these feelings, and the tone of the American press, with the sentiments and opinions uttered daily and hourly by the press of London, and other parts of England. From the time when the startling and astounding intelligence reached England, that the people o! France had revolted, and that Louis Philippe had been compelled to abdicate and seek safety in dight, disguised and whi&kerless, until the present, a old, ungracious, sneering and quibbling spirit has been manifested by the press of that country. The slight disturbances wh ch marked the three days have been magnified and paraded in their worst colors; the members of the provisional government have been termed anarchists and levellers, and the course they are pursuing as one that will lead to a state of things infinitely worse and more destructive than that which the people threw off. This may suit the taste of the upholders of Monarchy in England, from whom it would be unreasonable to expeot sympathy for republicanism; but the people and press of America view the matter in a far different light. Ia the sense of decorum and propriety which marked tne people of Paris during the three days?in the respect they showed for private rights and private property?in the maintenance of order, and the absence of all but a wholesome excitement?the people and press of America see every thing on which to base the hope that the French are as capable ot self government as their moderation, in tne hour of triumph, has shown them to be worthy of it. To be sure, a few of the occurrences that took place might well have been omitted; but we question if the same spirit of heroic moderation and self-respect would be exhibited by the people of any other country, under similar circumstances. The same may be said of the provisional government, the members of which have, thu9 far, at all events, proved themselves worthy of the great crisis in which they find themselves. They may have done things which it would be better to have left undone, and they may have omitted to do things which they ought to have done; but to expect that men charged in a day with the conduct of affairs of a great nation like France?with its complicated internal and external relations, and Likewise with the formation of a new govern inent, totally distinct from that which had been repudiated?could do better than the provisional government have done, is to expect too much. They are tjie admiration of the world, and have accomplished wonders, for which they are entitled to the gratitude of the friends ot liberty over the whole globe?proving themselves equal to the task ot preserving the new born spirit ot liberty until they commit it to the safe keeping of the nation. The writers for the press in England doubtless see in this French revolution an omen of the speedy downfall of monarchy, and the reorganisation of government in their own country. Despotism has virtually ceased to exist in Europe, and tyranny, under the name of constitutional monarchy, is destined to share the Hime fate. The spirit of liberty is abroad in Europe; and the rotten, corrupt, and profligate fabric of government in Britain must fall before it ere long. Despotism accomplished by force w bat constitutional monarchy accomplishes by corruption and fraud. The result of both on the people is tyranny, and the spirit which prostrated the one will crush the other. The people and the press oi the United States are the only impartial observers of the great events now occurring in Europe; and to this country the people of France, and other revolutionary countries, must direct theirattention for an impartial verdict, and when they deserve it, a fraternal embrace. France being now a republic, must expect to be the object of the shafts of England. She must expect to receive the saine treatment that the United States have teceived ever since the tree of liberty was planted here Even recently, in the Mexican war, our military were termed a rabble by the oreesof England, the war naelf nne nt unurpB. . -o- ? ? "fcfc"'" sion, and disaster, discomfiture and disgrace were predicted to the American cause. The same spirit of prejudice and misrepresentation will now be directed towards France, and for a like cause?because she is a republic. It is ot the utmost importance to the obtaining of a clear and comprehensive view ot matters in France, and the spread of republicanism in Europe by the American people, that tlie American press should employ none but the best and most unprejudiced observers as correspondents, and t mt tney should be Americans. Let the public read the admirable and philosophical letters from our ioreign correspondents, and contrast the views which they give of the present state of Europe with the sneering insinuations that characterise the correspondence of the Courier inquirer, and the Commercial Advertiser, ol this city. In our letters these ev> nts are, treated philosophically, and philosophical deductions are drawn from them?in the others, we see a sneering coldness, and want of sympathy with the liberty of the masses, if not a s?cret desire that the spread of republicanism will end in anarchy. It is unjust to the people of the United States to write and publish such sentiments; for it is to this country that the friends of liberty, in France and other countries, look lor approbation and sympathy.

With but comparatively little experience in the construction of this description j of vessels, our enterprising merchants, ship! builders and engine makers, rushed into the field | of competition with our great rival, Great Bri| tain?a nation that has almost from the very birth I of the discovery of steam as a means of propelling vessels, been engaged in building steamships? tnd with full confidence of success, sent the Washington on her first trip. The result of the first voyage was not as favortble as could be desired. It was evident that certain improvements were requisite in order to enable her to compete with the vessels of the British line; and these improvements were accordingly made, and also others, which developed them selves in subsequent voyages, Ureat was the mortification which this apparent failure caused in the hearts ot all the people; but it was to give way to a feeling of quitefa different character, when this noble vessel was to redeem

the character and the reputatton of the country to which she belongs. This she did on her last voyage to Europe, and her return. She made the first, in the face of many serious difficulties, in the short space of fourteen days, which, under the most favorable circumstances, is accounted t good trip; and returning, she made the port o New York in sixteen days, in the teeth of a sue cession of westerly gales, which served to hinder her speed in a very material degree. On ooth of these passages, her engines and machinery worked most beautifully, and as a sea boat, her qualities excited the admiration of all. Every one who was on board of her, including the passengers,' was loud in her praise, as an easy, comfortable, safe and quick-going vessel. In fact, she has become a favorite vessel; and although she did not at first fulfil the expectations of her owners and builders, nor the hopes ot the country, she has done so now, and may be looked upon as a triumph of American skill, and as good a vessel as floats on the Atlantic. This is in the highest degree satisfactory 1 a ? . in a encouraging, ana augurs well tor tne mon brilliant success which is in store for the United States as a steamship building country. Without a tithe of the experience which England has had in this branch of industry, we, at a jump, stand on an equality with her, and ere long will outstrip her in this respect, as fully as we have done in sailing vessels. The Hermann, the second of the line to which the Washington belongs, sailed a few days since; and \lthough she met with a terrible gale that compelled her to put into Halifax, we confidently believe that she will behave creditably, and make as good a passage as could reasonably be expected on a first trip. The latest specimen of ship building that this country has produced, is the splendid and mag nificent steamship, the United States, a vessel truly worthy of the great nation after which she is named. She left New York on Saturday last ror Liverpool, with a full cargo and a large list of passengers, and will, it is expected, confirm the reputation which we have acquired in the building of this description of vessels. Thue far she has far exceeded the anticipations of her fri^nrla Tt kaa knnn nonarfsino^ fenm navsono on bqard the Hibernia, arrived too on Sunday, that they met the United States at a quarter before six o'clock on Sunday morning, estimated distance from Sandy Hook 140 miles; and as the United States left the Hook at 4 o'clock in the lfternoon of Saturday, the time intervening is just fourteen hours, making her average speed ten knots per hour. It is contended and admitted that the Hibernia's speed coming in was not less than ten knots per hour, and according to the report from her pilot, she anchored at the Southwest Spit exactly at half past 8 o'clock in the evening, making the run in fourteen hours and thirty minutes. This is an excellent beginning, and is better than " eight miles per hour." P<iUe? Intelligence.

We understand jtha outlay hasexoeeded $3 009. and it Is now, beyond doubt, the most spacious, beautiful and perfect establishment in the eity. The vast area or the audienoe part of the theatre is dssslingly brll it ant, with buiniehed gold loroll work, and other magaifloent embellishments. The proscenium is entirely remodelled. with four beautiful private boxes, deoorated in a style of beanty and splendor whloh gives an imposing appearance to the vicinity of the atage.

Chatham Theatre.?Tha little Chatham is crowded nighily, and we are glad to see the maeajemsnt thus sustained In their endeavors to please their patrons. Advice Gratis," "Child of the Regiment," and tha " Spirit of the Waters," formed the bill last avenlng. They all went off well, and met with much applause. The Chatham theatre is now on the uppermost round of theatrical goed fortune, aud what la more, the manager intends to keep it there. It Is really a pleasure to visit It; the audlenesa ere genteel, the house well ventilated, actors and actresses perfect in their parte, box-keepers, be.attentive and polite, end everything, in fact, about toe place, it so well arranged as to give satisfaction to every one To-night the " Dream at 8sa," the '-8plrlt of the Waters," and " Sketches la India," form the bl<l. In tho last piece, Mr. Cbanfrau appears. Buoaowat Theatre ? Grattan'a new piece, " The Advcoate," was performed aga n laat night at the above theatre, and met with the oclrn and modeiate appn batten of a orowded house.

Though the plot is simple end eon nested. tea in* interest ointmued and uuabatad. thers 14 a C iiDBaui about thi waoln pie ?, whiob peroapt may be owing to the prosaic and elaborate etyU of tba dialogue. The den, vm-nt is too prsoipltately brought about ; and the cou version of Motis Oupree, from a murderer to a friend is too, sudden and inexplicable, though the scene itself is very effective. Toe pieoe was sucoes'fal, though hardly deserving of suooess The ballet whioh succeeded was stamped with medioorlty is all its paits. except the scenery Ttoe ferns, however, of the "Ringdoves," which wound up the evening's entertainments, is, without exoeption, the host fires, and the best played faree, we have ever seen. Ne acting could surpase that ot eaoh and every snt of the noMrs in this eminently entertaining end highly olever place It wae certainly the perfection of oomlcallty, and the as plus ultra of comic noting. Grand Concert ar thb Italian Opera Company.? This affair wiliooms off to-morrow, and from tne looks of the programme ws fancy that it will prove one of the finest conceits of the season. The whole of the company, ohorue and grand orchestra, will appear, and the whole of the musio of Verdi's now opera of "Nsbuohadnesaar," will be sung, as also selections from the compositions of Douissttl, Mercadante, and Rossini. The Tabernacle, we expect, will be orowded on the occasion, as many who do not visit the Open House will now havo an opportunity of bearing them m a more central point of the oiiy; and from tha reined and elegant nature of the concert, we expect to etc a lull and faihieaabla audienoe. French Operatic Troupe in NewYork.?Th* French operatio company, from tb - theatre d'Orleans, in N Orleans, it is said, will oorns this season to N. York M.
