Municipal election.

--The annual election of persons to fill the various offices in the gift of the people of Richmond occurred yesterday, and was conducted with remarkable quietness, and an entire absence of the usual bustle, parade and interest that ordinarily marks an occasion of the kind Between five and six hundred votes were polled, and the former incumbents of the different offices were nearly in every case elected where they did not positively decline a re-election. The following officers were elected:

Jefferson Ward — Aldermen: Richard D. Sanxay, Wm. Taylor, Abel F. Ploot, James A Icles, and John Hampden Pleasants. Common Council: Mcthaniel B. Hill, Richard O. Haskins, Edward A. J. Clopton, W.Deit Richardson, and Allen Y. Stokes.

Madison Ward — Aldermen: James K. Caskie, James Bray, George N. Gwathmey, George W. Gillism, and William B. Smith, Common Counch: David J. Burr, George W. Randolph, James A Scott, George K. Crutchfield, and Richard F. Walker.

Monroe Ward — Aldermen: John F. Regnault, Wm. W. Timberlake, N. C. Lipscomb, Adolphus Gary, and Thomas M. Jones.

Common Council: Thomas C. Epps, Larkin W. Glazebrook, Fleming Grimn, David J. Saunders, and Samuel D. Denoon.

In Monroe Ward the voters made the mistake of turning out two very good magistrates, and in Jefferson Ward a gentleman was elected to that office who declined being a candidate.
