A short time previous to the day of elecion, the two branches of the democratic party? reesoilers and radicals?agreed, for the time being, o bury the hatchet, and throughout the canvuss icted together with tolerable harmony. The ickut opposed to them was native throughout, but ,vas very generally acquiesced in by the whigs. rhere was a lukewannness, however, on both ides, which prevented a lull development of >arty strength, which is a thing very unusual in his city. The democratic majority for Mayor, luditor, llegister, and City Attorney, averaged ibout one hundred and fifty. The whigs carried heir cundidate for City Marshal by a small maority. The City Council is equally divided?that s, seven democratic and five whig Aldermen, and ive democratic und seven whig Delegates. The nuugurution of the Mayor, James CL Barry, takes luce to-day. lie is a man of moderate ability, jut highly esteemed us a citizen. According to an act of the last Legislature, granting to the city of St. Louis authority to subscribe naif a million to the Mississippi and Ohio lluilroad, if a majority of the voters should be in favor of the scheme, a test vote was taken at the lute election, and the result was favorable to the loan. The question was by no means a party one, as the majority in its favor?nearly three thousandproved. The vote on the question was larger in ihts city than in Cincinnati, where the population in some thirty thousand greater This railroad is an important link in the great Atlantic md Pacific road, and the people of the Western rulley look forward with much anxiety toitscoiudetion. It is thought that there will be an extra ession of the Legislature of Illinois during the oming summer, during which the right of way vill he granted. The people of a large portion of hat State ure dissatisfied with the action of the ust Legislature in refusing the grant, and are deemiined there shall be an early expression of pinion in its favor. General Shields arrived here yesterday, looking veil, and immediately departed for Belleville, 111., Die impression seems very general that he will be e-elected to the Senate, to fill the vacant seat to vhich he was deemed ineligible. There has been i decided reaction in his favor?the people of the vest thinking that entirely too much was made Kit of that implied threat against Senator Brccse. Much anxiety is felt among leading, or, rather, ed politicians, in relation to the Hon. Thomas H. tenton's talked-of visit to his constituency. The niestion is, " will he come?" and, if so, " when?" l'hey are at n dead loss to know what to say or do >n the vexed question of free soilism, and arc sailing in alj patience for their cue.

I was agreeably disappointed in the ni>pearance of the place. 1 low persons of common perception, with any candor at all, could write back to the United States such descriptions of Chagres hs I have seen going the rounds of the nepers, is more than I can understand. t As to its being "the sickliest place in all creation," 1 can see nothing to warrant the assertion. True? & Mr. TownsYey, of Ohio, lost his wife here, a few days ago, and he himself is considered upon the verge of death; and Dr. Smith, also of Ohio, is almost hopelessly ill; but ull these misfortunes are not chargeable to Chagres. The lady alluded to was wrecked, and in getting to shore was prematurely confined; and her husband's sickness originated from exposure &c. Dr. Smith was ill when he left New Orleans. Our surgeon, Dr. Chamberlain, a scientific inan, has made a close scrunity of the plain and the situation of the village, and reports that he can discover no cause why it should be a sickly place. The plain upon which the village is situated, is ouite circumscribed, and is hemmed in on ull sides by high mountains. So far from its being swampy, it is a hardx and, in most pluces, a rocky bottom. The natives are well disposed, and ouietly behaved. The females are dressed very clean, und wear fine linen, as clean and white as snow. They have ouite a passion for jewelry and trinkets. Capt.

[From the Miners' Journal.) The quantity sent by ruilroad this week, is 7.162 07 tons ; by canal. 3.096 10 ; total for the week, 11.447 17 tons ; about 300 tons less than last week. Dnring the corresponding week Inst yt-ur the shipments from Schuylkill county were 34.1N7 00 tons. The quantity sent to market from this region, this year, falls short of the supply to same period last yeai^ 03.000 tons, in round numbers. Including this deliciency. after allowing the other regions all thyy claim, it will require an increase in the supply of this region of at least 300.000 tons, to supply the market. This increase, we believe, it is impossible for the region to. furnish with the present means of transportation, and if coal should advance next winter, the purchaser will have to thank the " middle men " at Philadelphia. the pets of the railroad, who are endeavoring to control the trade, und who are engaged in distributing circulars throughout New Kngland, advising purchasers to hold back, on the ground that the coal moil in Schuylkill county cannot hold back much longer. We ran assure purchasers and consumers abroad, that if they had witnessed the enthusiasm displayed at tha last meeting, and the immense applause which followed the unanimous vote to continue the suspension, by not only the meeting, hut the large number engaged in other business, dependant on the coal trade, who were present, they would entertain different opinions. We firmly believe that tho trade will, at the meeting today. continue the suspension again?yes, and until the middle of the season, if necessary, to maintain their position in obtaining fair and reasonable prices for our commodity this season?not only a living for themselves hut also for the miners and laborers in their employ, and those dependant upon the business. If prices shonld rule high, let those be responsible who would endeavor to rob us of our lubor and industry. The Railroad Corajinny has advanced their rates,?the Canal Company lias advanced their rules, and compel us to pay them; und is it not unjust, improper, yes, infumous, for tlioso connected with tliem and their pets, to oppose a fair and equitable udvuucc of price to our coal operators, to preserve them from ruin also? Let them beware in time; there is a determination and spirit abroad in Schuylkill county, that will uover submit to such injustice. and they may be made to feel its effects when least they expect it. '1 he men in the employ of those in this region whocontinue to ship, ought to demand udvanced wages. I' they do not pursue this course, they may reap the advantages which others brought about; but, to their shame be it spoken, they cannot lay any claim to haling aided in bringing about better times. Better live ou breud and water for a few weeks, than to submit to und place yourselves hereafter in thy power of those who are hostile to the interests of this region, and would rob you of the fruits of your hard labor.

The parties are married, and when wc take into ( uiifiuriuuuii mai uoiii leave tamiiirs bemud, we are lead (o call ihe elopement one of an extraordiniiry character. The woman who eloped is Mary Edwards, of St. Clair ; the man's name is It. French, also of that place. The particulars of the case, as we have obtained them from an authentic source, are ns follows : .Tonkin Edwards, the husband of Mary Edwards, is an industrious and honest man ; hut having tnet with an accident some time since, by which ne was deprived of the use of an arm, and the sight of un eye, und being unable to obtain a livelihood by labor, he was compelled to seek relief by asking assistance from strangers ; and while upon such an ex|x'dition, French, who is a married man, became uiton intimate terms with Mrs. Edwards. Mr. Edwards x returned last week, and brought with him a considerable sum of money. Mr. French, loving Mrs. Edwards more than Mrs. French, and Mrs. fidwards thinking more, perhaps, of Mr. French than Edwards, they conceived a plot of eloping. This plot, last Monday, was put into execution, and both parties came to Pottsville as man and wife, wc presume, obtained passage in the morning train of cars, and started for parts unknown. Mr. Edwards, missing his w ife, was immediately upon the ilert, and suspecting something of the kind had recurred, as tlicy nad been seen wending their way to the depot, took the necessary precaution hv which to arrest the party. A telegraphic di?ptteli was sent to Heading ami Philadelphia, putting tho mlice of those places upon the watch for the rnniways. They escaped detection.
