fortune rose rapidly, and carried him to the post of the

' at, least he brought in requisition the heeds of his slaves
to dissipate his moments of ennui.
`-- It not only on the throne that ennui is found to be
the greatest enemy of morality, virtue and all good sen
timents. This plague of human nature and of society
exercises the same infinences on all classes. Almost

,grandeur, pay thin penalty, and thus maintain the e
`quill-brim= between social prosperity and misery.
Not long since, in the studio of one of our most dis
tinguished painters, a noble and opulent stranger, the
Count D—y, said, in presence of numerous auditors:
~ 'I will give twenty thousand francs to any one who

We see here the bad side of ahnndance, the radical
ennui: of Batley. The gaiety of the French character
ordinarily hinders this disease from arriving at its great
estheight; while in England it is called spleen, it Area
proves i-=aortal malady. But nothing would be easier
. to remedy; instead of jumping into the wee.er, threw
" riches into it; instead of blowing outone's brains, burn
the millions, often realized to the ruin of others; in
stead of killing yourself, destroy your ill-gotten gains,
and the spleen enjendered by opulence will fiy before

and in resisting its assaults they often employ mean
- fatal to themselves as well as to others. We will cite.
she example of Alfred Damvilliers.
Alfred was independently rich; he had twenty thou
sand pandas income, and led an easy life. He wanted
for nothing; happiness had taken a friendship for him;
he succeeded in all hi 3 wishes, in all his enterprises.
It is true his expenses diminished his fortune, yet he
saw no reason to disquiet himself about the future,
. . which be saw through a rich legacy—the inheritance of
his aunt. One day, Alfred felt a sharp attack of en
nui; ho tried to rid himself of it, but all his endeavors
were vain. He went to the Bois de Boulogne and then
to the opera; the wood and the opera redoubled his
... chagrin. He hastened the deuoument of a delicate in
gigue, and still remained cold and ennuye in the sue
ees that crowned his audacity. The fit lasted three
days, when he resolved to travel, to dissipate his
. gloomineee. He sent for the post-horses, and it seas
sot until after he had seated himself in the carriage
. , that he decided where to drive.
'Where shall I go 7 I know Italy, England, the
shores of the Rhine, Switzerland. No. Europe is too
• narrow for an ennui like me! I wilig,o to the East!'
' He traveled two years. On his return be was per
'fectly cured; but his aunt had died duringhis absen,
and her relations, who attendedher in her last moment ce s
( ,had secured her property.
'My fit of enuni centime a large sum,' said Alfred.
.:v. The sombre thoughts inspired by this result of his
..,;. - travels, flung him into another paroxysm. This time
he had recourse to violent and prompt measures. He
... sought a quarrel in the tiring-room of the Italian thea
tre. The next day he fought and killed his adversary.
.. . To kill a man because one happens to have the
:. . spleen, is acting very much like the sultan, and Alfred
would never have forgiven himself had he not learned
that his victim sus a duellist by profession, and had

He was almost ready to regret this third remedy,
when his wife unexpectedly Caine into the possession
of an income of fifty thousand pounds.
'We never thought of this fortune; said Alfred to

PITTSBURGH, MONDAY, OCTOBER ItC, 1843
RESOLT OT THE ELRCTIO% 114 ALLKOHE.SY COtrit-
TT.—On Saturday we published the Official Returns
of the election in this County, and our democratic
friends will agiee with us that the perusal of them is
perfectly refreshing. We recurred to them again and
again, and each time we found some new matter for
admiration ---some new cause fur triumph and gratula-
In our paper of Friday last, we said that the demo.
cratic candidate for Congress, Senate, Prothonotary
and Canal Commissioners, six in all, had beaten the
united vote of both the federal factions—we have now
the pleasure to state that the average vote on our As
sembly ticket is greater than that of the combined votes
of the Union and Antimasol candidates. So that
out of 15 candidates, the Democrats have elected ten
by majorities over the vote of both factions combined.
Judge WILEINS' majority over both of his competitors
is 317—Mr. Ns:cite-es majority over StmLivaa is
.19—Geo. R. RIDDLM'S majority over both his oppo
nents is 1'231! --our Assembly ticket, notwithstanding
the opposition to Maj. ANDEa}:6S, on the p art of some
fete democrats; has a small overage majority, and our
Canal ticket has nearly 1000 votes more than the whig
Under these circumstances, how preposterous it is
for our opponents to prate about what they could have
done had they been united, and to assume that all the
voterswho staid away from the polls on Tuesday last,
belonged to their part. , and wou7d have supported their
candidates had they come to the election. Every one
knows how bitterly the opposing factions contended to
heat each other—the struggle with the Antimasons
was fur existence 1..5 a party, and never did a set of
men make a mare fearful death struggle- The efforts
of the whips were not so constant nor so vehement. but
fargreater that . ; any they ever made before. Is it to be
supposed that, with such electioneering, and with the
motives to activity which existed, the federal vote could
have been so far shortas they wish to make it appear.
Does any reasonable man imagine, that with the dis
contents and feuds that must have existed, even if the
federalists had nominated but one ticket, they would
have polled as many votes as they have done under
their separate organization? The idea is ridiculous.
But the coons assert that the confidence of success
which prevailed among the democrats, incited them
to increased exertion, and contributed greatly to their
triumph. Now we should suppose that this very con
&lnce, if entertained, would be producti ve of apathy
and indifference; and would cause very many to stay
away from the polls in the belief thut the work could
be done without them. Such we know to have been
the case in several strong democratic district, as a com
parison of their vote, this year with that of 1841 will
Upon a careful examination of the returns, and a
dispassionate review of the whole campaign. every im
partial man man must see that the success of the
democratic party is entirely owing to accessions to its
strength; that any union the federalists may form, will
not procure them seeress; and that, hereafter, the dem
ocrats will have the strength to beat any ticket they
can bring out in Allegheny county-
So o aton.---The vote in this county for Senator, is a
better indication of the strength of parties than that
of any of the other candidates. It does not, however,
show the full democratic strength, as it was an office
for which our friends here did not make any struggle.—
But it shows the whole force of the opposition, 63 S ea-
LIVAIf was supported by three parties, that used eve
ry effort in their power to get out all their votes. He
was supported by the Whigs, Antitnasons and Aboli
tionists, and it will be seen by referring to the official
returns, that the democrats, without any exertion, beat
them all by a majority of forty-nine votes. It may be
observed also, as a curious circumstance, that Mr.
LET received received just the majority that would have elected
Dr. GAZZAM in 1841. That year Allegheny gave forty
seven majority to the democratic candidate, but
we lost the election by Butler giving the federal candi
date 48; to -make the matter sure this year, we gave
the Senator 49 majority, not supposit.g, that our friends
in Butler would let the whtgs get more than they did in
1841, but they appear to have forgotten entirely to vote
for Senator, and they are again defeated by a majority
of 500 or 600. But never mind; we will have "better
luck next time," and when we again vote for Senator,
Allegheny will give a sufficient majority to elect him
whether he receives any votes in Butler or not.
CANAL CONXISSIONERS.—Speaking of the candi
dates for Canal C o mmissioners, the Pennsylvanian re
marks, that it is a fact worthy of note at the present
moment, that the democratic nominations for Canal
Commissioners have a majority of about three hundred,
in the city and county of Philadelphia, thus showing
that the party had it in their power, under every adverse
circumstance, to have carried their city and county
ticket, and proving too that our disaster is but a tem
ALGERINE BARBARITY.—It is stated in a Provi
dence raper, that West and Potter, who were impri
soned by the Algerines of Rhode Island, were taken
before the court hand-cuffed and chained together!—
ThiA ignominious treatment is one of the petty abuses
of power which have marked the Whig party of Rhode
Island, brought disgrace on the ve name of the state,
and will cover the authors with infamy.
Death of Senator Linn.—The St. Lords papers
bring us the mournful intelligence that Dr. Linn, the
talented, amiable, and chivalrous Senator from Mis
souri, has departed this life, leaving mourners among
all parties and in all quarters of this Union, for his ear
ly separation from a people who loved him for his ma
ny virtues, his able and useful services, and the sudden
blight of his waiting honors.
The Reporter is in mourning, and pays midst and feel
ing tribute to his memory. We give the particulars of
his death from that paper ofFriday the 6th instant.
Death of Dr. Lin n .---Yesterday the mournful intelli
ligenc.e reached this city, that the Hon. L. F. Linn, U.
S. Senator from 'Missouri died at his residence at St.
Genevieve on the 3a inst. NV e learn that nfim dinner,
on the day of his death, he retired to his room, and was
shortly afterwards discovered to have passed without
a groan to a purer and abetter world.
Dr. Linn suffered severely last spring from an attack
of chronic rheumatism, and on his recovery made a visit
Philadelphihome,a, New York and other:Eastern cities.
On his retw n about a fortnight ago, he appeared
to be entirely restored to health, and his fa nily and
friends had just begun to congratulate themselves on his
renewed strength and activity, and the public on the
bright career which still awaited him, when the sad
truth broke upon them that he whom they so fondly ad
mired, had closed his pilgrimage on earth.

PHILIDELTHIA. ELECTIOS.—Although the result in
Philadelphia is not as favorable as we desired, yet it is
what might naturally be expected. The defeat of Mr
McCutti for Congress. was effected by getting out a
Volunteer, who received a sufficient number of votes to
elect the weft. The Pennsylvanian of the 12th says
that their successes in the conte.st ccmsist in the trium
phant election of the county ticket for Senators and
Representatives, and in the election of John T. Smith
in the Third Congressional district, and of Charles J.
Ingersoll in the fourth, by handsome majorities.
In the First District, two democratic candidates be
ing in the field, .lefeat was inevitable. Noeffort could
avert it, and that sleraucmtic district, for democratic it
is by a considerable majority, will be misrepresented in
Congress by a federal whig from the city—roe who
cannot be presumed to have feelings common with the
great body of his constituency. So much for open
schism in our ranks. There is, however, a moral in
the defeat which has thus been brought upon us, which
wo trust, will not be without its beneficial effects here-
Our nomination for Sheriff, and the rest of our city
and county ticket have been lost. through the influence
of discontents and dissensions, which, though not so op
enly manifested as in the case above alluded to, were
equally prejudicial in their operation. It would be ea
sy perhaps to point out the various elements of disaster
which were thus brought in play, and industriously
stimulated by our opponents, but probably the moment
of exultation on the one hand and of depression on the
other, is not the time when an analysis of this kind
could be most profitably carried out. It may be suffi
cient to say that had the party come into the field as it
could and as it should, in regard to these nominations,
there might have been a different tale ustell to—day.

GLORIOUS VICTORY IN NEW Jr.rtsEr.--We learn
from tho Pennsylvanian that the democrats hare swept
the state. This is indeed a glorious victory, as our
opponents seemed to think that New Jersey was com
pletely in their power, and that, for the future, it was
to be nothing more than a stamping ground for the same
old coon. It appears, however, that they were sadly
mistaken; the people having roused themselves for tha
contest, and overwhelming the enemy upon every point
which was at issue. But it is unnece_ssaty to dwell on
this subject. The returns speak for themselves, and
again we say, Well done, Rew Jersey!
The following is the result for Congress:
L. Q. C. ELMER,
MR. WRIGHT is also chosen in the Newark dis- I
trict. He was supported by the Democrats and a par-
tion of the whigs in opposition to Mr. Kinney, the reg
ular whig candidate—so that the whip have not elect
ed a nominated candidate.
To the Legislative Council the democrats have el
ected 12, and the coons 6; to the Assembly, the demo
crats 36, the coons 22.
Outo.—Mauers in this state look rather squally, and
frorripresent appearances we would not be surprised
if the whigs had carried both branches of the Legisla
ture. If this be the case it has been accomplished by
disunion among our friends; the same folly that defeat
addle part; in some portions of our own state.
