ly maintained everywhere, and we regret to say that strong stimulants were freely resorted to in the course of the day. The vote in the city was between Messrs. Randolph, Steger and Robertson, State- Rights candidates, and Messrs. Macfarland, Johnson, Botts, and Gilmer, Union candidates. Mr. Gilmer withdrew from the contest about mid-day. Messrs. Randolph, Johnson and Macfarland were elected. After the result was announced at the City Hall, speeches were made by the delegates elect. The State-Rights party engaged the services of Smith's First Regiment Band, and the "Marsellaise," "Old Virginny Never Tire," and other enlivening airs, were play candidates.Jefferson Ward.Madison Ward.Monroe Ward.total vote.

The election. The election yesterday in this city was one of the most exciting that ever occurred. It has resulted in the election of one of the State Rights candidates, Mr. Randolph--and two of the so-called Union ticket: Messrs, Johnson and Macfarland.

The whole State-Rights ticket would have been elected but for the influence, 1st, of the cry of secession; 2nd, of the alarm excited among the foreigners relative to their oath of allegiance; and, 3rd, the rigging up of the rump of the Douglas party, and its introduction to take part in the election.

Certainly it was a disgraceful scene for even the "Five Points," much less for Richmond, and that, too, in a house for divine worship. I wonder that such a house — the house of God--should be allowed by its authorities thus to be desecrated. I have no acquaintance with two of the gentlemen, (Messrs. Randolph and Steger,) but suppose the latter gentleman the son of Maj. Sager, late of Amelia; if so, he has the right blood. Judge Robinson I do know, and "he will do (in Southern parlance) to tie to." I did not see the Judge whilst here, or I should have made myself known to him. He introduced me to the great Clay the first time I ever saw him, in Washington, in 1839. Our batteries go on. No relaxing of effort at all. There are a number of planters on the different islands with all their
