Haste then to help, for now on ruins blink they stand.

Corre;pon.ieEce of the Palladium, New York, Nov. 10, 1854. We are just emerging from the excite mcnt of one of the most xtrnordinnry M!i;ical contests, tlmt ever occurred in litis Stute. There wussn army, or rathor a lmlf a dozen armies of candidates in ihe field, i.nd the returns f "killed, wounded and uiistiing," ure awful. The official figures are not jet announc ed, but it may be set down us certain, tha' Morulio Seymour, the Soft-shell and Li-quor-dculfrs Candidate, is re-elected Go vernor, and llint Fernando Wood, who was on the s. me ticket, is M.iyor elect of this Ci'y. The Lieutenant (io ernursliip is yet in doubt, but the probability i", thai R iymond, Whig, is elected, still the vo'i i close, mill it may be, that the iinuiuriiil Scroeis Briiidier General GuViivu Scnrgs ("I'LcrLiis what a nmne,' ) i Ludlow, ihe Soft Candidate, has won ilu prize. , As fur us tlx returns have coint in, the three ure nearly neck mid neck. The Lrgisluture will be Whig, by a round majority, and morethun two-thirds of the Congressional deWation ditto. There i scarcely a corpora! guard of Nebruski men elected in the S:ule. In our common council, the Reformers and Whigs will have a decided majority. The Know-Nothinsr vote has ainnzed every body, although there was some oj posi:ion in their ranks, to Mr. J. V. ILr ker, the Know-Nothing Candidate for Mayor, he received about 17 500 votes and comes within about 200 voles of being elected. His party claim that he has uc- tually a plurality, and that lie has been do fcatcj by the rscalily of certain inspec tors of election, iu one or two of the strong 'fortijn' wards. Some ten llious and Know-No lihigs assembled in the l'ark last evening, and passed resolutions to thai eff-'ct. After the meeting had adjourned a portion of the crowd formed in columi and m irched up. Hroadwuy, with music light aihl bunners. Th proosi'i sura pi 1 ill iU bored about five thousand men. The election here, was unusually quiet. the friends of the liquor dealers being too hard at work, and having too tough a Jdj before them, to spend any time in fighting. The friends of 'license,' increibm rs i: inny seem, drank very sparingly during the utrucrtrle. At Willi imslnirg, there was riol and murder. The deput she ifTs were attack ed by the Irish, and one of them, named William Henry II; rrison, a respectable citizen, was so fearfully injured about th- head, that he died on Wednesday. Mr. Silk worth, another depu'y, wns seriously injured, and Mr. John II. Smilh, a fire man, in endeavoring, to rescue the t-flicers fixm the mob, h. J his skull fractured, anu will probably die. List evening, the Know-Nothings assembled ul Williams burg, in great force, wi.h the evident in tention of nvenging ihese outrages; bu!. ihrough the exertions of the M ivnr, and of Mr. Andrews, one of the E Iiior's of the New York Courier and Enquirer, bloodshed was prevented. An ullick was however made, upon the Roman Caiholic Churches of St. I'eler and St. Paul, and some dam ige done lo the exteriors of the buildings, The presence of a s' rung body oi ci iz ;n soldiers, alone prevenlcd the burning of bo:h edifices. I fear, that the end is not yet. We have hud two murders, and three attempts to murder in this city, since the date of my last letter. On Saturday even ing, a policeman, named David Gourlay. was stabbed throtig't the lungs, by John it. II. ilmes, u Candidate fur A Merman in the first ward. II jlutes was ut'.tinp iug to rescue some of his rowdy cons' Kuents from the i-ustody or the oiTiclth, and was seized by Goiirlny, when he inflicted three a:abs upon the unfortunate m m, one of which, proved almost immediately fatal. A coro ner's jury have found a vt-rdic'. tquivalen to wilful murder, against Hjim.'s, wl j i now iu iho Tombs. O.i the s.imu evening, (Saturday,) o vol i ri ir Irishman, of the name of Pttrick Quiun, was killed by the thrust of a knife, in the hands of a boy of seventeen, named Edward Allen. It seems that a drunken fellow, who was with 1 lie lad, slugered ag..inst Quiun, and a sculTli ensued be tween ihcin, during which, Allen stabled Q'tmu to the heart, and :n ide off. lie has not yet been taken. One of A rdio's boats have been pick ed up empty, by the suhooner, Lilly Dale, and another was also seen in the distance also etnp'y. The case of Chas. A.

For several dys he re tnniited there, engaged in transnctine the business which had brought him to the place, nn.1 from his exceedingly plain dress manners, and general appearance, attract ed but litile attention. Scon Mr. , wi'S suddenly seized vi:h illness, during which, ho was sadly neglected by his host; and '.he servants, taking iheir tone from the muster of the house, It Tt him lo hift for himself, is In best could. Thus matters went on, till one morning, he was found past prnyuig for. His papers were then examined, -tha ihe sad intelligence might be corrmimiiuat ed to his friendx; when, to the surprise ol nil, lie wns found to be one of the wealthi est men in the western country. Arrangements were accordingly made for the funeral; but, before the last rites were performed, the tulject came to life rgain, havii g been the vi'itiin of crtalep sy, ins'ead of the grim King of Terrors, All were overjoyed at his fortunate es ci'pe from so dread! ul a fate, and from lhat time, were profuse in their expres sions of solicitude, eliciied, however, ii we m.iy be judges, by "documentary evi deuce, rather than by uny personal regard. At length, some one ventured to ask how thines appeared to him while in his tranr-e; to which he thus replied: "I thought I had rome to the river of death, where I met an angel, who handed me a jewel to serve as a pass to the other side. On gi ing this to the ferry man, 1 received from him unnlher, which carried me forward another sli ge in my journey Going on thus for several sti ges, receiv ing at the termination of each, a ticket for ihe succeeding one, I ul last reached the gate ol lite neaveniy u v. anere found St. Peter, who opened, the door at my summons, pipe in mouth, seated by a small table, on which stood a goodly mug of steaming hot whisky toddy. 'Good morning, sir," said lie, very po litely. : ... "Good morning, St. Peter," said I Who are you, sir?" naked he, turning over the leaves of a huge leger. 'My name is J." "Very good, kiit where did you liv down below?" "1 lived at St. Louis, in' iIms S'.ate ol Missouri." ' Very well, sir; and now tell me where you died." "I died t.t Chicago, in Illinois.' "Chicago!" sii l he, shaking his head "there is no such plnce. sir." I brg your pardon, St. Peter, but hav you a map of the United Stales here?" "Yes, sir." "Allow me to look at it." "Certainly, sir." Willi lhat, he Landed down a sp'endid alias, and I pointed out to him Chicago on ihe map. All right, sir.,' said he, after a mo ment's pause, "it is there, sure enough, so walk in sir; but I'll be bltst, if you i.in'l ihe fir t person that have ever come ht:t from thf.t place." Thus ended Mr. J.'s account of his transition sl.le, and no more questions were asked. Spirit of tht Timet. Ancient Inhabitants or Nicsau. On the Upper Missouri, there exis's a I tract of hind known by the name of the Mauvdiset Terres. or Had Lmd;atone lime, probably iho bottom of an Immense lake, in which, perished thousands of ani mals having no representative on eanh. ll appears lhat the waters of this pond were removed in sane convulsion of na ture, and the sediment lit its bottom became indurated. The portion of the surface bus excavated, forms a valley of VO miles in length by 30 in width. There- mains of animals, which lived and breath ed long before the advent of m..n upon ihe earth, arc here found in such abundance, i.s to form oTil is tract, an immense ceme tery of verlebrata. The bones are said lo be completely petrified, and their cavi ties filled wi.h ftilicioits niiilltr. They are preserved in various degrees of inlfgri y some being beauiii'iiMy perfect, and oilier broken. Two remarkable species of rhinocero:, the first ever found in America, were dis covered here, and also a panther, smaller than the present vaiiety and likewise s number of strange animals wi.h long mevns, unlike hpj thing which man ever saw alive. We know then, lhat there were once individuals in Nebraska, cs en rious end S'rangely alutped, and pugua clous, as any squatter " hich the present rush of mri'jritiari will carry thi'her.
