TSin FARM KltS' VOTE.
When the full returns of our late election shall
have been officially made, it wi.l be seen that tho
farmers bavo voted for Lincoln and Johnson
with a unanimity unprecedented lu any resolute
couteet. Tho gains in this State for McClelbin
over tbe Fusion voto of lSilOliavo all been ctfeeted
iu the cities and villages where Irish immigrants
most do congregate, and whero their votes,
whether they be naturalled or not, come in
freely. Not only bas Mr. Lineola received nioro
v tea in ltx;i than he did in IH'i I, but wo are con
vircedlhat a larger proportion of our na ivo
born citizens voted for him.
It is dillicult for any one to name a dozen New
Y rkus who voted tho Republican tienut in IsjoO
who did not voto the I'uioii ticket last week;
w bile those who voted against Lincoln iu Ihi )
but for him in ImM, may be enumerated by hun
dieils. Wo know an election distiict in West
chester county, wherein .Mr. Lincoln gains
twet ty-live votes, in good p irt by conversions,
bi.t these gains were balanced by twenty six
lnitiiralizri'ion-, mainly of laborers inn quarry,
ii I of w hom voted of course for MeClelhin. Wo
have already ins'am ed the township of Clint m,
on tl.e St. Lawrence, newly settled with Irish
nien, and of course largely MeClcilan, hut of
whose sixteen native voters fifteen voted for
It is like this tbrongbou1. In Pennsylvania,
the Mi Clellun vote is enormously swel ed by tho
mining counties Luzerne, Schuylkill, llerks,
Columbia, Wayne, Rc. 'j. nine-tenths of llio
miners I ting foreign born; apart from these, the
Lincoln majority iH overwhelming -,ve think not
less thun one huVdrcd thousand in tho aggregate
vote of the Slate. So thli Sr ito. bad the right of
enilruco been restricted to unlives, would bavo
given our President more than one hundred thou

wi u il both have supported loin.
We state these fads in uo spirit of hostility to

rights and fiarcbi-es. We Intend no impeach

On the Ith of October the Vni nt arrived at
1'ahiu, and anchored a short, distance inside of
ti e harbor. On this dny a plan was arranged on
board thu H'm A.vs..'i to attack the, I'lur.iln with a
tng, und by milling into her under a full head of
steam to sink her at her anchor. Lieutenant
Commander llcardslco and a number of men from
tho laitiiimtt volunteered for tho enterprise;
with permission from Captain Collins, he went
on shore and endeavored lo olitaiu a suitable tug.
Alter vainly seeking f-ir such a vessel, ho found
a unull light crait ; but she bad no coil and no
way ot gttting a mipplv, so this project had to lie
abandoned. On the next d iy,the ith, the Florida
uu ved to u cli-e ber.h under one of the forts.
On tho night of the 7th a council of war was
culled by Captain Collins, mid, niter mature de
liberation, it was decided to attack the Fluriilu
on that night. At :i o'clock A. M. of the Hth, the
H dcoMefr got under way under a full he id of
ctenm, and pushed directly towards the- place
where tho I'lutuin was at anchor. To do this she
bad to pass two forts and t.vo llm.ilian inen-uf-war
one id tin se a Urge sailing frigate. Captain
Collins diiected the bow of the tt'vrhmrtt so as to
strike nn.ldship ot the Florida, with the intention
of sinking her.
It b. im: tlood-titlo and very dark, tho H'arhn.
silt drilled, nnd when the collision looV plaej the
bow i f C.iptain Collin' vessel shear d and took
the pinite on tho quarter, carrying uwayt'io

ruined away the wa'er-elosc. On sir, king tint

Itiloio surrendering tho Florida, Lieutenant

with revolver in hand. He discharged every

Tho Florida lias two smoke-stacki, which, like
tbe masts, taper alt, and give the ship a lo,
rakish appearance. She is painted a jet black,
but tho weather has rather marred her beautvr.
The bow is very long and sharp, and gives Indi
cation of great speed. The ship is supplied with
a double engine, which bears the iiaine of the
makers : "Fawcett, Preston & Co., No. 212r,

Tho outsido view of the Florida only give! (be
beholder an idea of her good sailing qualities,
and without seeing the internal arrangements one
would imagine her to be a very modul of cleanli

Nkw Ciii:ssjit Snu;p.r Tiifathe. Lnhj And
tty'uStcrct is dramatized by Mr. llrou,hitm, and
has his usual faults Innumerable "carpontcr's
scenes," very heavy, pointless dialoguo, and so
much confusion in the story, that no one who h is
not read the novel could possibly understand tbe
play. Hut bo has given the part of "Luly Aud
ley" every possible advantage ; he has elaborated
every detail of tho character ; be has nude, her
concentrate tbe entire interest of the play; sho is
the plot, the interest, the sole o'ljeet ut tho pi y.
Mrs. Dowers has deeply studied this tnudcrn
' Lucrezia liorgia," who, like "Lucre-tin," has the
wondrous golden hair that custom assnci.it
with gentleness, but which in reality in aus "mis

sion, the endurance, the courage, tlie ruthless
ainbit'oii of Mi-s liiaddon's conation. It is a

e can see ;bo workings of llio evil tnind, how
gradually the thought of crime is bom iu it, and
wiih what resolute power it is sei. ed a id executed.
This terribly wilannan woman (ihougli there
have been such) is mod na'nrally portrayeii hy
Mrs. liowors, her playful childish manner, her
moments of tenderness, her mirthfulness, are all
last inatirg. Th old s.irctsru of her i scene with
"Tallboys," w here be appeals to her hear:, which'
is stone to all passions hut ambition, her great
scene with ' llobcit Audley," the bceno which
follows it, its incipient madness, aro all uduiir
uble c Meets otl.'ne suiitkst art, so perfect that the
nrt is concca ed. This is the part in which Mrs.
Dowers displays her intellectual and artistic
potters to the greatost advantage. In the crude
state of tho present style of acting it is a goal
amid false atoned, und should bo seen by all, lor
it is a performance to be remembored.
Mr. Mordaniit, though bo gave us a good
sketch of "llo ifit Audley," was a little too
rough and Impulsive for tho keen, subtle U.vyce,
who bandied lo tho last the Ilgie-s with gloves of
velvet, not of tied. Mr. Lawrence llu'ret',
c-seutialiy un iniellci: unl actor, played this part
in a manner mor.hyol the "Lady Audley of
Mrs. Dowers. The great soeno in the lirst act was
like a wo ll pluyctl game of chess, where each
watched the other's slightest look, and where
neither lost a move. Mr. J. T. Ward's "Luke
Minks" deserves pralo. It was a good picture
of a low country villain, but free from all exagge
ration nnd vulgarity.
Mrs. Flo, d was a good "l'ho bo ;" her mo lest
und unpretending in iiinoi' is a relief, surrounded
us she is t,y ladies who are all e.llcct tiiou and
piiteusiun. There is nothing to tie s lid to him
tut "Aviunt!" Mr. and Mrs. L. II urett made,
their arts quite ii.tere-ring when Auiy Audlrn
was last played here. M rs. Flood, by tho w ay.
has probably uot read Mi-s lliaddun's novel, or
else would bavo su n that "Pho'tiu"is nweri

monastic creature, ever dressed in sober r.ihsj of
giay and drab. This is a mere error of costume.

"Last Hose of Summer" entranced the audience.
Mad'lle Diduba made a good "Nancy." Gralf

YllllKCll AND A PlIILAllFlI'llIASI, A priz.C light
was expected to tako place this morning, some
where iu tbe vicinity of Scranton, botwoen two
brnlsers known as Doruey Harris and John Mir
tin, (he former of New Y"i k and tho latter of this
city. The principals, accompanied by their
backers, seconds, nnd others, left the city yester
day tor tho scene of battle. Iloth men are of the
bull-d"g breed, and are represented by the fancy
to be In excellent trim.
Ihey were to have Inula set to abnt three
weeks ago, and met for that purpose near l'jrt
Jems, a small place on tho line of the New York
a id Frie railroad, and directly on tin boundary
line of the three States of New York, Pennsylva
nia, nnd New Jersey. For sumo reason or oth ir
the tight did not como oil', ending in a grand ro
among tlicins'dves. Kvrry passenger on the
train was robbed bv tho tliieves n attendance,
und brutal outrages were committed npon several
of tho female passengers. One or two persons
were seriously injured, and 0110 111 in was killed.
The tight was postponed until to-day. Tho
same pany who were present at Port Jervis left
ins; li ght tor Stranton. The train from New
York last night broucht over the roughest and
most vilhiiioiis-lo'iking crowd that ever pissed
over any railroad. Several of tho psicncors
wire relieved of watches nnd pocket-books. Here
tiny were joined by Pliibnl dphia thieves and
juit-blrds, thus making a most chuice crowd
'llio ronghs, in order to throw the authorities
oil' the scent, announced that tbe tight would
take place nt Jcnklntown, on the line of the North
Pennsylvania railroad, 11 short distance out of
tbe city. A prize light took place a few months
since at this place. Tho police of this city tele
graphed 10 the Scranton authorities that the light
wculd lake place there, and it is to be hoped that
si me arrangement has been mado to arrest the
w hole party.
The services of the soldiers at Camp Willi un
Penn were secured, and the men were in roadi
i.en this morning to prevent the brutal eoudiet
fieni taking place ut Jcnklntown. Dot the roughs
had noidea of meeting at that place; the report
was circulated by them with a view of deceiving
nil except those directly interested.

The Stock Market, up to the close last evening,
was very much excited; and in the Oil shares
especially the orders to buy were very large. It
seems as if all the loose capital in riiiladeiphU
was finding its way Into oil stock; for men and
w omen of all classes send peremptory orders to
the brobeisto buy, aud commissions ro as thick
as blackberries. It will be well if some of tho
ardent purchasers ever see their mouey again ;
for in so wild an excitement there i.s but littlo
disci iniinution, aud "good, bad, aud indillerent"
stocks are alike in demand, and are purchased
blindly, us the votaries of fortune Invest in lot
ti ly lici.cts, iu the hope of drawing a prize. That
mm j of the Oil Companies are paying well, wo
do not deny ; but It would be the veriest madness
to suppose that one-half of tho several scores of
companies can ever pty their stockholders a
dollar by way of dividend. Our readers, if they
will dabble iu Ihe greasy waters, should make
careful invtstigulion and inquiry beforo parting
with their money. This by way of caafion only.
The demund for Heading shares was very
strong during Ihe day, and New York purchasers
took from the market four thousand shares at
pikes varying from U'.'i to 70 ; the shorts iu both
maikets experiencing a sort of 5care, without
having much chance to cover their engagements ;
for most of tbe shares were bought for "the full
account;" and the sellers were, in the main,
parties who go iu for a very small profit on their
operations. The near approach of the dividend,
which, it is said, will be 15 per cent lu stock, and
6 per cent, in cash, renders the Heading the most
promising investment among all the dividend
pay iug railways, and New York speculators are
quite shrewd enough to take advantage of the
market. Out readers may expect to see Heading
