" JAMES MONROE. By the president : JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, . Secretary of State. From the Connneticul Covranl,pullii!itdat Hart fum . At tha termination of the election of delegate! in this town umy excite surprise, and at tome singular circiiuiiunces allemlcu it, we think it will not be uumterealior to give a statement more minulu tlinn usual i especially as we are now trying an experiment under tbe boasted u ni venal suifraire law. The business of uia&inzfrecmen fowine to va rioos delays') was uot closed until about 1 o'clock Mr. Brace was then nnnikialed moderator, and chosen without opposiUoo. At the first ballot air. J erry had 4a votes. Dr. Wells 457. aud mere wero 17 scattering wtet. On tbe second oallot Mr. T. had 463 - vote. Dr. W. 466. and mere wero S scattering. On third ballot Dr. W ells was declared electee, and tha votes were raid to be for Dr. Walls 499 for gen. Terry 477, and 3 scattering. ' As it was well known that the democrats bad sarlv mustered all or cariy an innir troops, at on tha tecond ballot mere were lew scattering votes, and as there was no defection from the federal vote, this won - uarmi increase or above thirty democratic votes was considered tvry suspicious. This suspicion beciuie strengthened whet the next ballot dis - covered the whole democratic tlrenzth. includin? sca - :iivg voies, wat but 3 - aad at Uia next ballot their vote wat ttill lets. Heretofore tuc - cest hat alwayt increased itstead of diminishing Uieir strength. It teemed therefore certain that tome improper mode had been used to multiply their votes ; and at it might ba repeated, a num ber or young men whose patriotic exertions can. not be too much applauded, determined to en dcavor to ascertain the tact i and at Uie third ballot lor second delegate, nearly twenty, per sons were cnaiienged as having voted twice, and after a long examination Uie foct was so clearly established as to about a dozen of them, that their secoud vote was rejected. - dome vole wave not rejected, although several persons testified they had teen them vote before, at they brought other testimony to satisfy the authority that they had not Of Uie votes thus rejcetejall but one came from persons who were known democrats, or who acknowledged they voted for democrats Besides, several offered to vote who were not freemen Upon a former ballot one nut in his vote, and being challenged, said he waa but SO years oiu, that ba did not know who he voted for, that the voto was banded to him he did not know by whom, he believed Uia name of Syl - vas'cr waa u:oo it. Another when challenged said " he was admitted a freeman day before yesterday." At Uio last ballot several men ol tbe tame party camb forward to vote a second time being informed that they had voted before taucr awimei retired, without voting on oeio; directly challenged. Notwithstanding BU their attempts to secure tha election of another of their part - , they failed, and Mr, Terry wat elected. Although m - ui illegal votes were thus detected. there can be no doubt that many men have suc ceeded in gelling in a tecond vott ; among tuch number, it wat imimtnibla to know all who voted ; but uuiess some check had been put to this vile busincs, the federalists could not have tucceedfcd, although they were (it it believed) strong enough to meet opeu manly opposition. uuiin ad'iiiioo to me plan of voting twice, the tumult in the house waa well calculated, we will not say designed, to drive off the sober part of our cuneua, particularly our people. All regard for ordur and decorum seemed to be lost. anu it was u ju'jtmi whether there wat roost noise doors or out ; that silent and decent attention which nsed to pervade our nsiemblies. was ex changed for loud boisterous noiie, and the voice iuc magistrate was drowned iu that of the lowest of .he people. All authority seemed to no prcwiraieo, and the calls to order were an twered by iujults. From Uie specimen we have nau we nava great rea?on to fear that our elec uon meetings are to become as distinguished for violence at they used to be (of order, and that peaceable men art to ba driven from the polls to make u jre room for lliose who come ia nuder an universal tuffraga law. It uthoped that there yet virtus enoujh in tha peonle tn frown uoon tuch a ttate of things, and that there yet remains authority enough iu the state to prevent it. We did not intend to say any Uiios relaUve to the decision ol the board as to the adniirtion of freemen, because the new law is to drawn at to give countenance to almost any opinion. We only ask to have gentlemen consistent. But we cannot forbear to notice, for the information of tbe public, that one of our justices, who. holds an important law office under the general government, gave an official opinion that if a man wat enrolled and liable to do military duty, be was uuueo. io oa made tree, although he had not done the duty, and by the tame reason he who ia liable to pay taxe?, though he has not paid them, may oa maue iree, and thus the law wholly de feaid. Too much credit cannot be piren to our fede ral friends for their continued attendance ; our irienus at v atl - fiartlord were, as they generally have been, at their posts. Our voun mm have shewn that they know bow to value the an - cient reputation of Connecticut - Our old men subjected thcmelrcto great inconvenience once more U serve their couutrv. and we have an been taught by successful experiment not to despair iu consequence of one defeat.

Yesterday, tha remains of General Richard Montgomery were deposited, with civic and military honours, beneath the monument erected at St. Paul's Church, by Uie order of Congress, to hit memory. The arrangements for the occasion have been heretofore published ia this paper. Iu couformity with those arrangements, the rover nor's guards, the corps of artillery and cavalry, and Uie militia ofncCrtj together wifh tbe different societies, distinguished by their badges and banners, appeared at an early hour, and formtd the Una u Uroadway from the Uulterjr to Cham ber - street. The clergy, Uie students of Columbia Colletre, the free masons, the municipal authorities of the city, the members ot the state and national le gislature!, the consult of foreign powers, the vice president of the Uuited States and other character of distinction, formed a part of the procession. 1 be line, under the direction of the veteran col.

Fromtte Washingtun City Gazette, July 6. It is said that Col. Monroe hat recently given directions that a preference is to be given, iri making purchases on phblic account, to articles of domestic manufacture, where they can be had any thing like a fair price ; this, it is understood, extends to all that relates to the public buildings, aa well as oUier national contracts. We learn that the U. S. frigate Macedonian, capt Dowries, is under orders for the N. W. coast of South America, to co - operate with the Ontario in Uie protection of our trade ia those seas. Her assistance will be well - timed, and affords evidence of a judicioua distribution of our naval force, by atiengtheningour interests in this interesting quarter of the globe. From good information, it is conjectured she will not leave Boston, where she is repairing, till September. From the Pittsburgh Mercury of June 19. A nolher murder We are almost satiated with recording the fie - juent instances of the most atrocious and flagitious crimes. There it scarcely a par we open, but contains an account of either murder, a robbery, a theft, or some other instance of human depravity. This state of public morals is truly deplorable, and loudly calls for me most acuva exertions, not only of the civil magistrate, out also ol the statesman, the moral island Uie divine. Our last Zancsville papers, gives Um following account of another murder. On ihe night of the 16th of May, at about 12 or I o'clock", sundry shriekt were heard at or near me npper bridge at that place, but were not regarded. ' In Uie morning, a trail of blood wa discovered along the upper bridje, and leading over Uie railing. Tbeie circumstance gave rise to suspicious that aome foul act had been committed. In Uie course of the da v. a certain Joseph Teal, of that place, was arrested and commuted to prison on suspicion of bavin committed a murder. The circumstances apiinst turn were, blood found on some of hit clothes, having beeo out late at night on the 16th. No dead body, however, was at that time found, nor wat there any knowledge of any person being musing. In a few davt after, the court of quar ter sessions sat ; and there being no evidence at mat ume Dtlore uie grand jury to find a LiU a. gainst Teal, be was liberated. On the 6th inst. however, it was discovered that the apprehensions of the citizens were but too well founded. On that day, Uie dead body of a man wat found in tbe river, 20 miles below Zaoesville. Oa examining Uie body, there was louoa a atao in me neck, and two deep stabs in Uie breast, apparently with a dirk. The countenance and person of the corpse was so decayed, that the features could not be distinctly recognised.
