Brooklyn IBaiixj (Eagle. aMCRSHAY EVEMXG, NOV. 5. Our Defeat in the State. Well; it seems to bo generally agreed, now. that John Youug is the Governor elect of Hie Empire S'??eTa Prol'J honor which any man, however hijjKhis ambition, might bo satisfied with. Specu lations on the causes of this result on the causes of the immense, vote for Mr. Young, and the defection from Gov. Wright we reserve for another time, and an early one. For the present, wo content onrsclf with the remark, that, when a party is defeated it is always profitable to look what reasons there arc for tTiat defeat in the preceding action of the party itself. This 13 better, far belter, than to find fault with ' the people.' Xlie future - What can tlie Whigs do ? Whother wo liavo the Assembly or not, in the next convention of the State Legislature, tho Senate is of courso sure to be Democratic. Here, then, wc have a groat breakwater to the dashing waves of Whiggery, now rampant in triumph. The Senate will uot only act as a chock on Whig legislation but will bur the Gov. in any bad appointments arid nominations. It j3 to be recollected, too, that the New Constitution, (which is probably adopted,) prohibits the borrowing or loaning of money by tho State which is equivalent to taking tho fangs entirely out of the serpent's mouth, bito he ever so fiercely! Here, m tv, 1 .1 1 , . ,mj wgiutm!, men, rtu ! get an illustration of the prodigious good of such a provision ; for it is well known that the Whig leaders, under their doctrino of ' internal improvement,' go for tho most ample aid, from tho tato Treasury, to loeal works, speculations, and monopolies. If the New Constitution should not prove to be adoptod, we still have tho Democratic Seuate to fall back upon. So ! we are guarded at every poiut ; and bid Whiggery do its worst and wickedest ! 'JTJie 2Ycw Constitution. Although iu reference to the voto on the Constitu - tion,the law, we cannot get at any full authentic returns, even from those places where wo know definitely the vole on the mere ministers of tho law it is thoughtpretty generally that the Amended Consti - tion is ratified. Herein Brooklyn (as in New York city,) it had every disadvantage to contend with. Between the Radicals, who were not satisfied because the New Codo did not go far enoughand the Conservatives, who apprehended danger because they thought it went too far wc were almost in danger of getting no votes for it at all. For our own part, however, and in the luce of a firm and powerful prejudice among our friends we fought for the Amended Constitution with might and main ; and instead of being astonished at the majority in Brooklyn against it, we consider it a great deal gained' in getting so many votes as it did get. Assemblymen elect. Last winter's Assembly consisted of 7 - 1 Democrats, 52 Whigs, and 2 Anti - Renters, not included in the others. Since the election of 1845, a new apportionment has taken place, by which some counties are entitled to more members, and others to less, than they formerly were. The Assembly when full comprises 128 members. In tho thirty nine counties heard from, and which last year elected 49 Democrats and 39 Whigs the resnlt now gives 37 Democrats and 54 Whigs. Nativism qnahcd. We suppose nobody will dispute with us, the proposition that the Nativists, in tho just finished election, have uot only been killed dead, as a faction, but that they have beeu carried out and buried decently. They have not succeeded iu electing a siugle one of their candidates. Wc don't want to be hard on them ; but we must be allowed to remark that they hav'nt got a bit worse treatment than they deserve. Such proscriptive parties 71111st go by tho board sooner or later, however promising may be their temporary success. The N. Y. Mirror, speaking of tho recent ' slave case' in that city of tho gratuitous efforts .of tho police authorities, at tho instance of the Mayor, (that personage certainly not being called on by his office,) says: " There arc some contests from which both parties retire with disrace,and others from which they retire with houor, but this fight for a black boy was not of either kind. One party came out of tho contest with flying colors and covered with honor, whilo tho other must be regarded as disgraced by the cause ho espoused. Mr. Jay is especially entitled to the thanks of the law - loving and humane portion of our citizens, for his perseverance and disinterestedness, and Mr. White for his able argument and eloquent appeal, which have raised him high in the estimation of all who beard him, and will help to confirm hiin in popular esteem among the ablest lawyers at our bar. Mr. McKcon, too, the District Attorney, rendered essential service to the cause of law and good order. Mr. Brady appears to have been a volunteer in tho case, aud as for the other parties, we say nothing of them, lest we say too much or too little. The case was justly decidod on purely Constitutional grounds, aud no one has a right to find fault with the decision. The law gives a prescribed authority to the slave holder, in this State, and just what the law allows, the officers of the law are bound to grant, but not a jot more. All voluntary or hired works of supererogation on the part of individuals, in a free State, to cnablo the slaveowner to recover his property, we regard in the same light or rather darkness, that wo do the forcible abduction of negroes from tho coast of Africa : a deed which our national laws declare to bo piracy, and worthy of punishment by death. And we do not see how the human being, educated iu the light of the present day, can view tho deed ill any different maimer." Wreck found at sea. The captain of the brig Lady of the Lake, from New York, which arrived at Bermuda, when on her passage, boarded the schooner Bath, Maine, from Baltimore for Texas, dismasted and abandoned. Found a nolo nailed up in the cabin, stating that she capsized about 36 miles .from Haltexas 01, the 9th Sept., and that there were . a lady and two children, passengers, and that tlie two children were drowned ; the rest were taken oS" on the 18th by a whale ship (the name being defaced tho captain could not make otit where she was from or boqnd.) The Lady of the Lake boarded her nbout'36 miles W. of Bermuda, and took out of her a pile of saddles and harness, ofwhich aud provisions, sie was loaded ; night coming on, he loft her r Bhe had - very little water in. Worth knowing. When a crack is discovered in n stove, through which the firo and smok penetrate, the aperture may he readily closed m a moment with a composition consisting of wood ashes and common alt, made into a paste with a littlo water, plastered over trfo crack.

The general joy for our success here is materially dampened by tho non - election of Mr. Udall, the Democratic candidate for County Clerk, and of Mr. Thome to the Assembly. Even with the remembrance that our noble Brooklyn Democrats did so well as they did, we cannot but wish they had worked a little harder, and passed in Messrs. Udall aud Thome, too !

We are specially pleased to clench the assurance of Mr. Van Voorhis, the Democratic nominee's, election to the Sheriffalty : a better man were hard to be picked for that office His vote was 4869 and Mr. Hodges', Whig, 4567 ; making Mr. Van Voorhis' majority 302.

Sloat, who lately commanded our squadron on tho coast of the Pacific, arrived in Washington on Tuesday evening. Tho Union says the Commodore deserves the grati tude of his country, for the energy with which he has discharged his duty as Commander of hie squadron, and the promptitude with which he took possession of tho ports on the coasts of California. St;cli othcers as himself are the highest ornaments to tho navy. ..'As - the New Orleans Picayune re marks, n was his siirnal pood fortune to hold an important command at a critical moment in the history of tho country. Ho was equal to the emergency. Promptly and firmly ho carried into effect the wishes of the people and government, and his name win oe inseparably comiectod with the annexation of California to tho.U. S. The service was one of momentous consequence to the country, and not less honorable because performed without bloodhed or strife." .Morbid appetite for money. In - the course ofj an article on the subject of the influence of wealth, &c, in one of our exchange papers, we find this sentiment : "Poverty poverty, in the common acceptation of the term is a thing dreaded by mankind, aud is often planed among the catalogue of crimes. Such is the poverty that fellowships with rags and beggary. But there is another species of poverty, tho most despicable that can be imagined, and more to be dreaded than all other earthly ills and maladies combined. We mean tho poverty of soul, with which rich men are often afflicted, and the only poverty to be abhorred and despised. Men who oppress and cheat the poor men who make wealth the standard of worth and respectability men who make gold their god, and whose devotions consist of Dollar - Worship, are the self - made victims of this poverty of soul, compared to which destitution is a Heaven sent blessing." On no particular matter is the public mind more unhealthy than, tho appetite for money. Tho wild schemes of visionary men the religious excitements of misled enthusiasts the humbugs of ignorant pretenders to knowledge the quackery of tho thousand imposlers of all descriptions who swarm through the land have their followers and believers for a time ; though the weakness which always attends error soon carries them to oblivion. They glitter for a moment swim for a day on tho tide of public favor and then wnk to a deserred and endless repose. But the mad passion for getting rich does not die away in this manner. It eugrosses all the thoughts aud the time of men. It is the theme ol all their wishes. It enters into their hearts and reigns paramount there. It pushes aside the holy precepts of religion, aud violates the purity of justice. The unbridled desire for wealth breaks down Ihe barriers of morality, and leads to a thou sand deviations from those rules, the observance of which is necessary to tho well - being of our people. It is that, and nothing else, which has led to the commission of those robberies of tho public treasury that have in years past excited the astonishment and alarm of the American nation. It is the fever ish anxiety after riches, that leads year after year to the establishment of those immense moneyed institutions, which have so impudently practised in the faco of day, frauds aud violations of their engagements, that ought to make the cheek of every truly upright man burn with indignation. Reckless aud unprincipled controlled by persons who make them complete engines of selfishness at war with everything that farors our true interests unrepublican, unfair, untrue, and unworthy these bubbles are kept afloat solely and wholly by the fever for gaining wealth The same uuholy wish for groat riches enters into every transaction of society, and more or less taints its moral soundness. And from this it is that the great body of the working - men should seek to guard themselves. Let them not think that the best thinrr o:i earth, and the most lobe desired, is money. For of all the means necessary to happiness, wealth is at least a secondary one ; and yet all of us tacitly unite in making it the main object of our desire. For it we work and toil, and sweat away our youth and manhood, giving up tho improvement of our minds aud the cultivation of our physical nature; weakly thinking that a heap of money, when we are Old, can make up to us for these sacrifices. And yet when wo see the universal homage paid to the rich man, it appears uot very wonderful that people are so greedy for wealth. But let us think again, of what avail, or of what true gratification is. that re spect which is paid merely to money? Is it to win tb'iB at the last to hear men admire and listen to the deferential accents of the low for which hundreds plod on, and on, and on making that which was intended as the.pleasantest part of our journey here, a burden or a useless waste? Is it to gain these ends that men fritter away the sweet spring and summer of their lives, sinking premature wrinkles into their brows, closing their hearts to tho sweet promptings of nature to enjoy ; and finding themselves, at an advanced stage of their existence, with abundance of worldly means for happiness, but past the legitimate season for it? Foolish and miserable error! All the time of such men is devoted to their one great aim ; aud all their fear is that they may be poor. Want of wealth is, in their idea, the greatest of miseries. They look abroad into the world, aud their souls seem to grasp at but one object filthy lucre Now let us be more just to our own nature. Let - us cast our eyes over this beautiful earth, where so much of fair joy, of pure happiness, of grandeur, of love, of sunshine, exist ; looking on the human race with the gentle orbs of benevolence and philosophy ; sending our glance through the cool aud verdant lanes by the sides of the blue rivers over the buBy and crowded city among those who dwell far on the prairies or along the green savannahs or where the monarch of rivers pours his dark tide into the sea ; and wo shall see poor men every where ; and we shall see that those men are not wretched because they are poor; and we shall see that if thy were to prove luckier than they have been, and were to become rich, they would not be better men or happier men. And many of the most truly great mon that over lived, hare been poor have passed their days in the vale and never had their names sounded abroad by applauding mouths. Silent and unknown enjoying tho treasures of soul inherent within them superior to tho common desire for notoriety they have lived and died in obscuro stations Tho world heard not of them statues were not built to them nor domes consecrated to them nor cities houored with being named after them. But they were nevertheless of characters really sublime and grand : not the grandeur of common heroes, but the grandeur of some mighty river, existing iu apart of the world us yot undiscovered, holding its broad course through untrodden banks, and its capacious riches not open to tho world. Despicable .' If the reports are true, in reference to criminals from Blackwell's Island being conveyed to Now York city, to vote on Tuesday, tho fact is a deep disgrace to whoever prompted, promoted, or officiated in it, of whatever party he or they may be. We hope tho matter will bo thoroughly ferreted out. It is not the criminals from the Islund only who should be made to suffer. A far greater weight of guilt lies on the atrocious action of the official who connivud at the proceeding. Suffolk County.

NOTM ON TJIE NORTI1WKST, OR, THE VaIXIY OF TnE Mississippi. By W. J. A. Bradford. Wiley c Putnam. Public attention here is so widely turned for various reasoits - to the West and Northwest, that this book will doubtless bo very extensively sought after. Besides makiug an interesting volume for the general reader, it is, " though not strictly a guide, yot more useful to the emigrant than a book of mere details can bo, by imparting to him those general ideas of the country, which will bo always of no less 1 value than a knowledge of minute particulars in j relation to certain places." Schiller's Thirty Ykars' War. Harpers, N. Y. Well - known and highly approved as this work is among scholars of quite all countries, it is somewhat singular that an edition has been so long wanted here. The Harpers, in their publication, have of course supplied the want ; and as the book is cheap, aud well - printed, it is not too much to say that they have well supplied it It forms ono number of the New Miscellany an excellent series of selections, by the by, which we recommend to the special attention of our reading friend. It includes an agreeable variety of works in almost all the departments of literature, except novels. Dombky &. Son. By Chas. Dickens. Wl!ev& Putnam. Uuiform with their Books which are books, Wiley &. Putuam are issuing this new Tale of Dickens. It strikes us as promising something of tho reoZ Dickens sort the Nickleby and Twist style ; something much better than his later larger works. Sartor Rbsartus. By Thos. Curlyle. Wiley 4 - Pntnam. This has all of Mr. Carlyle's strange wild way ; and all his fiery - breath and profundity of meaning when you delve them out. It is well printed like the whole of the ' Library of Choice Reading,' of which it forms the 74th number. Hocoleoa ; or Enolaxd im the New World. Edited by Eliot Warburton, Author of the "Crescent amt tho uross." w nej - 4 - Putnam. One thing about this book recommends itself to special notico ; and that is involved in tho author's remark in tho preface, when he says : " This work, whatever else it may be, is work : it contains no hastily - written erudo impressions, but tho deeply - tested convictions of an earnestly iuquiringmind."... When we consider the difference between this, and the monotonous affectation of modesty in so mauy prefaces the reader being specially requested to 'excuse bad writing as the writer is in haste,' &c, it surely is something, indeed, to see an author willing to take the deliberate responsibility of his production - We have marked extracts from 'Hochlega.' Pictorial History or England. No. H. Harpers, The opinion is expressed very freely, and by good judges, that this History, as a true clear comprehen sive Narrative, will vie with any of the Standard Works of the time. As a specimen of typography and Ihe art ol wood - engraving, it certainly deserves to rank high, also. Mutiny on board the brak Pons. The bark Pons, Captain Cheyney, arrived at New Castle, on Tuesday morning, in forty four days from Malag and Gilralter. A letter from the Captain, dated on Tuesday afternoon, states that the bark was then above New Castle, the entire crew in a state of mutiny, and having control of the vessel, he a prisoner by thoir authority. Assistance was despatched to Capt. C. upon receipt of the intelligence, by the owner of the Pons. It will be recollected that this bark was the slaver carried into Monrovia, with some eight hundred Africans. Misa D. L. Dix. Hundreds whose eyes this paragraph will meet, will feci interested in learning that this untiring and devoted philanthropist is recovering from the recent severe illness at Columbus, Ohio, under which she had been suffering for about six weeks. Her disease was remitteut fever, with symptoms of congestion, accompanied by infiama - tion of the lungs. By the last accounts she was so much improved as to contemplate removing to Cin cinnati in a few days, but under the care of a phys - ican. What is the best sort of bread? It is gen rally supposed that the whiteness of fine flour is proof of purity and good nutritious qualities. It is not so in truth. Unrefined flour is most healthy and will alone sustain life when refined will not. Keep a man on brown bread and water, and he will live and enjoy good health ; give him white bread and water only, and he will gradually sink aud die. The coarse well baked brown bread used in alms - houses and prisons, is always highly nutritious. Two children burnt to death. A house in Ley den, belonging to Mr. James Miner, and occu pied by Mr. Lyman Lamb, was destroyed by fire on last Tuesday week, while Mr. Lamb and his wife were absent, and Mr. Lamb's two children, one four years old and tho other 2J years, perished in the flames. LOCAL 11VTELLIGJENCE : &c. Board of Education. Members expelled. At the meeting of the Board last evening a consider able degree of interest was excited by a debate which took place upon a commuuication from the desk of the Common Conncil, notifying the Board of Education that the C. C, as Commissioners of Common Schools, had appointed Messrs. S. E Johnson, W. M. Harris and CharleB R. Marvin trustees of the recently formed Colored School district which embraces the whole city of Brooklyn, and, by virtue of that office, members of the Board. Two of the gentlemen named Messrs. Johnson and Marvin appeared accordingly and took their seats. The print involved in the discussion which ensued upon the commuuication, was that the Common Council had no right to appoint the claimants as members of the Board, and that they had no right to appear upon tho floor. C. P. Smith contended that the whole city by single districts, was already represented in the Board, aud that the C. C. had no power to ap point a double representation. If the Colored dis trict were truly represented, it should be by colored persons. He was replied to Mr. Marvin, who waived any discssion as to the rights of the C. V. iu the matter ; but' stated that he and his colleagues appeared there by virtue of the notification by the clerk of the CO. which expressed in terms that they had been appointed " members of the Board." A motion - was made to lay the subject on the table, but as it was properly contended that such a course would not dispose of the question, but only have it open future similar difficulty, the motion was withdrawn, and "Mr.: Smith offered a resolution "disre garding the action of the C C. and denying the - rights or the trustees of the colored district to seats in that Board. This was passed by a strong majority. Hints wore thrown out of an intention on the part of the rejected members to suo out a writ of mandamus, jeaa'tnng the Board to show cause, why they should not be permitted to fulfil the appoint ment of tho commissioners. Thereupon several of the minority had their protests ogHiiist Jhe proceed - og ferMored pB - th.b.wintites... frjThe above expulsion is only another "exhibition of tho jealousy which appears to have grown up between the Common Council and the Board of Education. The former assume that by virtuo of their office as Commissioners they havo tho whole supervision and direction of the acts of the Board ; while the latter claim that they are a legislative body entirely independent of the Common Council. It is timo that the continual difficulties which arisooutof this question were ended, aud that the position of each body was distinctly defined ; and perhaps there will be no timo better than tho present to determine the relative powers of each. After the transaction of the usual financial business of tho Board, a long petition waB road from Mr. lioyle, the teacher of phonography, requesting permission to teach his system, free of charge, in all the public schools of the city, and offering to elucidate to the JJoard its advantages. He was accordingly permitted to make an address to the members, who seemed to coincide with the views which he set forth, aud the required permission was granted. Natural History Society. Tho meeting last evening was attended as fully as usual, and Judge Hammond was appointed chairman. Several interesting specimens were exhibited aud presented ; after which a long commuuication was read from Mr - Wm - . Bigelow, of Hartford, Ct, confirming the re sult of some experiments in the potato culture, which he had recently stated verbally to the society. He had finished harvesting a crop of potatoes, a portion of which had severally been manured with common manure, anthracite coal ashes, wood ashes, and plaster. The experiments had thoroughly convinced him of the efficacy of tho anthracite ashes in preventing the potato disease, while the other manures had produced potatoes very badly rotted. Where he used the coal ashes the yield was at the rate of two huudred bushels to the acre, of very fine, large and healthy fruit After a discussion on the subject of a fossilized human form, recently found in Alabama, tho society adjourned until next Tuesday evening the future evening of meeting. ILr" The recent heavy and prolonged rains have completely resuscitated vegetaiion, and the grass iu the rural portions of the city has again sprung forth with perennial freshness. The green appearance of the fields under the influence of tho bright, clear and beautiful sunlight was this morning truly paradisaical, after the gloomy ' spell " of weather which has of late hung around us. ILr Mr. Gliddon will commenco his series of lectures before the Brooklyn Institute, this evening, on the subject of the archreology of ancient Egypt, to bo illustrated with copious and splendid pictorial diagrams. These lectures, which will contain many - valuable additions to these heretofore delivered by this gentleman, have elicited from all who havo eard them tho highest degree of interest, and the room will probably be densely crowded.

Yesterday (4th) Mr. Ryder, who lives at the comer of 18th street and Broadway, discovered the dead body of an infant iu an open lot on the north side of 18th street, between 5th aud 6th avenues. It was wrapped in a piece of old calico, apparently part of a woman's dress, and had fragments of a puir of black panta - loous over. Dr. Van Buren made a post mortem examination of the body, and found the mouth, tongue and throat much lacerated and injured. Verdict, " death by injuries inflicted by some person or persons unknown to the jury." Police. Thomas McLaughlin, the deputy keeper of Blackwell s Island, who was arrested yesterdav with 13 of the convicts, for coming into the city for them to vote, was held to bail in 1000.
