It In Done !
The news by the Southern Mad yesterday wan
?ach as to dispel the last hupe of those who would
hope to the last of the Election of Mr. Clay. The
Electoral Votes of the Union will probably be
cast as follows:
Certain for Clay, j Certain for Polk.
Rhode Island. 4
South Carolina. 9
Delaware. 3 Tennessee.13
Louisiana. 6 Indiana.12?31
Should Mr. Clay receive all the votes now
doubtful, he would still be beaten by 29 votes,
unless, indeed, Mississippi should vote for him,
of which we have not been able to discern the
Rejoice, then, Laborers of America! for by

On Wednesday evening, 6th inst. the news
received from the interior of our State was
favorable to the success of Clay. It purported
that Ontida and Madison had gone for ue,
which indicated a heavy Abolition vote for
Clay, and, with the favorable results in Dutch
ess, Renaseiaer, Washington, Scheuectady and
Montgomery, looked like a Whig majority of
several thousands. If Oneida and Madison had
gone for us, there could be no rational doubt of
the result. Next morning we had different ad.
vices, putting Oneida and Madison moderately
against us, but giving us encouraging reports
from Delaware, Chenango, Seneca, Ontario end
Monroe. On. the strength of this news, which
left the chances nicely balanced if not a little in
favor of Clay, many Whigs bet largely on the
State and general result, stimulated by an un?
fortunate error of judgment in a leading Whig
journal. It now appears that the Ljco-Focos
had private advices that (Thursday) morning by
a steamboat which came down express from
Albany to within some ten or twelve miles of
this City. Aided by this, they had no trouble
in swindling the Whigs to the tune of Half a
Million or so, in addition to their previous heavy
loesfs. We don't ohject to sharp practice; but
is n't this a little too sharp ? What says the
Morning News ?_

the Whig party was prostrated in our recent

enactment would entail upon the country. Mr. W. showed in

contracted by those States which had not the more! courage
to tax their own people to pay."

OLD MASSACHUSETTS! GOD BLESS HER !
By Adams &, Co.'s Express we received Utt
evening at 7 o'clock the Boston Atlas of yester.
day, containing full returos of the Election held
in that State on Monday, with the exception of
six towns, viz ?Hull, in Plymouth County.
Shutcsbnry and Whatcly, in Franklin County;
Wales, in Hampden County; and Egremont
and Mount Washington, in Berkshire County.
The news is glorious beyoDd our most san
?Tjine anticipation?. The Wnig Presidential
Electors?the W hig Governor and Lieutenant
Governor of the Commonwealth?Seven Whig
Representatives in C/ngress, and an overwhelm
irg Whig majority of both branches of the Legis?
lature, have been elected by the People.
The Atlas says:
" The 11th of November is a day long to be
rerncmberpd in the annals of Old Massachu?
setts. We have beiten our enemv most thor?
oughly ;.nd completely. Tne Whigs of Massa
chusetU, with that proud and indomitable spirit
which wa4 a nnble trait in the characters of tbeir
Pilgrim ar;d Revolutionary Fathers, seem to have
si zed ihe occasion of the backsliding and falimg
?ff of th' ir brethren in other States, to show ho w

co Enemies at the ballot-boxes, wnenever it is
their pleasure to exert their power.
" We congratulate')ur Whig brethren through?
out the Commonwealth must heartily on the re?
sult of this grand and glorious victory. No
State in the Union, under parallel circumstances,
has exceeded this victory ia its amount or its
consequences. We think ourselves?the Whigs

The Election and tile CntholicMi
To thr Editor of Thr Tribune :
Amidst the intemperate and sometimes injudi?
cious language which defeat after a noble con?
test brings to the lips of men, I am glad to per?
ceive in the calm und rational observations of
your paper of this morning, which though now
p;ihaps restricted will become more general, when
reflection will take the place of feeling, and when
time shall have worn off the wire edge from dis?
appointment It appears that the great Whig
party, arc to be, or perhaps huve been already
defcuted, and tlxtse who anticipated with high
hope a different result, are now casting about to
ascertain the cause through which that result
has been brought about. I perceive that it is
variously charged upon the Abolitionists, the
Native Americans, and the Adopted Citizens?
especially those professing the Roman Catholic
faith. And it is to this last class that I would
call your uttcntiun iu the few rmunrks Which J
am about to make. I am myself of opinion that
it is injudicious to bring out the religious or sec?
tarian character of any portion of our citizens,
during a great political contest, in which they are
expected to act exclusively in their e vil capaci?
ty. Having paid seme attention to the subject 1
have not been able to discover that the Roman
Catholics at any time acted or professed the in.
tention of acting as Roman Catholics. Appeals
indeed have been made to them as such by bath
parties, and in this I think that both parties have
committed an error. But I have not been able
to discover any evidence of their having acted
as Catholics more than Presbyterians or Metho?
dists may be considered to have acted as such.
On the contrary I see in the reports of different
States, that the Catholics of the Union at large
are as divided and opposed to each other as the
parlies themselves to which they respectively be?
long. The great majority of the Catholics in
Maryland are Whigs, and v?.ted iar Henry Clay.
The majority uf the Catholics of Louisiana arc
of the same political party. The reports from
Ohio furnished in The Tribune attest that the
Catholics and Adopted Citizens s'ood up man.
fully !or the grtat statesman of Kentucky. A
large number of the Catholics of Penn?j lv^nia
have voted in the same way. And in our own
Stite, even in our own City, the voters in the
V\ hig ranks professing the same religious faith,
though a small minority, still in point of num?
bers were considerable Many of them indeed
arc known to have voted for Clay and Frelirg
huysen when thev thought they could not vote
for any other of their party.
What, then, is the result, if these statements
be correct ? Simply, that the Catholics are as
divided, taking the whole extent of the Union,
as any other class of citizens. If the Whigs
blame them for not voting more generally their
Electoral Ticket in New-York and Pennsylva?
nia, is it fair to forget that the success of the
Whig Party in Maryland, Ohio, and possibly
Louisiana, not to speak of Kentucky and In.
diana, may le ascribed on the same niles to the
voies of Catholics 1 I for one do not think thit
it is just or right in us to forget this view, when
we arc passing judgment upon what you your?
self h ite? pardon mo for saying it?improperly
de-ifMia'.cd tnc Catholic vole.
Perhaps, however, the tracing of consequences
to their antecedents and causes would turn the
censure which wo are reaoy to bestow upon the
Catholics into a theme of self reproach against
ourselves. There never was a period when the
Cath dies and Adopted Citizens were so perfectly
detached fiom the shackles of Party as they
I were at the commencement of the Presidential
erntest which may be considered now as termi?
nated ; and if the Election had taken place as
j things were twelve months airo, my own decided
imprt ssion is that the majority of what is called
the Naturalized Vote, both in New-York end
Pennsylvania, would have been found, perhaps
for the first time, on the side of the Whigs. But
the unhappy event3 which occurred in Philadel?
phia, when the Executive authority for protect,
ing the lives and property of the citizens was in
the hands of Whig Magistrates, must have pro?
duced injurious impressions in reference to that
Party. This may have been, and no doubt was,
unjust reasoning, but it is human nature. Hap.
pily fur the hoior of our City, nothing of that
kind occurred in New-York. But when the
Whig Party of this City list Spring abandoned
their own regular nominations for Municipal
Officers, and went over en rui-sse to a new Pariv
hiving hostility to Foreigners inscribed upon its
bam :n>, those Foreigners were by the same ruie
of nature itself, if not by just reasoning, alienated
from their attachments to the Whig Partv, and
? rced to thro*- themselves bs.kk into the open
arms of the antagonist Party. These are all
nttural consequences flo.ving from natural
ciuscs. Tee Whigs should either have made
n > ?nominations of their own, or they should have
be< iii loyal to the candidates whom they put for
werJ fur the suffrage of the citizens. Here, I
think, was the great mistake of the wh.le cam
pi g.i. Neither it for :ae t-> eay hew far the
neu Ptirty were faithful to the conditions ex
pt\*srd or implied in that Spring coalition. But
r ist, I think, if ne search fur the causes of
?A;ai, to reach tbotc that are primary, and to
sec whether the "Whig Party of New-York and
Pennsylvania ere compensated for the immo?
lation of Henry Clay, by the election of Mayor
Harper in this City, and Lewi. C. Levin of P?ila
Xe? York. Nor. U. 1S44. T. F.
Nntivc American P-rty.
From the Albany Evening Journal.
Now that, the Presidential Election is past, the
Native American Puny ot the City of New-York
is ? encoding its-tr^ttiiiz-tion over the State.
Several Whig- newspapers and mar.y Whig poli?
ticians have taken ground in favor of this en'er
pr.50. There has never been an occasion as fa?
vorable to this movement as the present The
experime .t c-,n now be tried with leas injury to
other interests than at any former period. And
as thie nperirnem m-ist and will b= tried, wc
shall offer no objections and thruw ao obstacles
:n its way.
Our o-n sentiments upon the question have
been frankly expressed. Tney remain un?
changed. Indeed, the reasons which now
prompt others to become Native Americans con
fi-m and strengthen us against the movement.?
It is said that the State has been l"st by an cm
b died naturalized vote against us. This, n
tru?, proves that the S'ate would have been
saved u we had not, by our demonstrations of
political hoeti?ty n_ani3t that class of citizens,
i d.iveti them against us. The success of the
Native American tiLk-.t in tbe city of New-York
last spring was cl-im-nd as a Whig triumph.?
Tr>e proposition to exitnd the period for n_tu
ralization to twenty-one years was received with
favor by le-iding Whig statesmen und newspa?
pers. Two Whig newspapers in this city have
labored perseveringly for 11 months to array
Native again.'. Adopted Citizens. The intention
of organizing a Native American Party in our
cities ana villages after the E'eetion was -psnly
and loudly proclaimed. We st< p not now to say
whether all this was right or wrong; but we ask
reflecting, rational men whether, with a know
iedge of these things, Adopted Citizens should
hare bern expected to vote the Whig ticket ? If,
then, we have lost the State by a course which
has driven Adopted Whig Citizens against us,
should we blame them or ourse-ives? While fa?
voring and uniting with the Native American
Party, was it reasonable to ask or expect those
whom that party proscribes to vote our ticket ?
Ft was believed, before the Election, that tRe
Native Americans in Ne?v.York would give us
a majority in thj-t City. Beguiled by this hope,
the Whigs abandoned their own and adopted the
Native candidates. Bui Loco-Focoism, true to
its instinct-, whether professing Abolition or
Nativism, generally adnered to the Polk Elect?
oral ticket, f-o thdt instead of /"raking any thing
by the Native movement even in New-York, we
are not certain that it did not rrpr.l us many
vottsas it attracted. Some, indeed, say that the
number of Adopted Whig Electors whu voted
against us in New-York exceeded the number of
Loco.Fuco Natives who voted for us.
There is a Urge class of naturalized citizens
in Ulsier County, most of whom, as was the case
to a greater or less degree throughout the State,
had abandoned Loco-Focoism. These Electors
voted witii us in November and in April. With
them wc h id u sure and decisive Wing majority
in Ulster. But by a strange infatuation, the
Whig Party of D stcr, by an official declaration
of its Ccntiai County Committee, was disbanded,
and a Native American Organization recommend
cd, for the purpose, as would seem, of punishing
Irishmen lor having voted the Whig Ticket.?
Simultaneously with llic movement of the Whig
Central Committee in I'lstcr, its Whig newspa
per broke ground in favor of Native American?
ism. Can we biame Adopted Citizens, under
such circumstances, for leaving us ?
It has Decn snpiiosed, most crronc lusly, that
the Adopted Citizens were nearly all opuosed to
us. That a very large majority of these Electors
wt re with our opponents, is true. But we have
fatal evidence now that we could not afford to
lose those who were Whigs. We have been in
debtcd, in this county, for the la6t two years, to
the votes of Adopted Cit z-ns, for the maj irity
we obtained. Colonel Barnard and Willis
Hall world have been b;aten in 1642, but lor
the votes cast foi them by Adopted Citizens.
Sheriff BaTTERHaD and Mr. stlivens would have
hern beaten in 1643, but for the s'itw Elect.ii-.
These Electors have now, by the warfare waged
against them in two Wnig newspapers, and the
avowal of our Whig friends that a Native Ame?
rican Par'y would be organized immediately after
the election, been driven into the ranks of our
opponents. And cur majority in the City has con?
sequently been cut down Irum 550 to 230, and
our candidate for Congress is defeated.
We have lost from a thousand to fifteen hun?
dred Adopted Whig Electors in the city of New
York ; from two to tnree hundred in each of the
Counties of Orangp, Ulster, Dutches*, Albany,
St. Lawrence, Jefferson, and Erie; and from one
to two hundred in at least twenty other Counties,
making, in the State, an aggregate of from tour
to five thousand. With a majority of only 5,U00
aguinst us, a change, of 2,5u0 votes from the
Whig to the Loco-Foco side, was sufficient to
defeat .Mr. Clat and to elect Pouc. And yet
these2500 Electors, wiih as many more who be
longed to us, had the Wh-g Party kept clear of
Native Awrrlcaiiism, would have voted for and
elected a W h>o President.
The Natural zed Electors have n- verthe'ess
voted against their own interests and the welfare
the country. But had they nut better reasons fur
doing s*, and aro they not more excusable, than
the two hundred thousand native born citizens
wno have voted for Pclk. Free Trade, Texas and
Slavery ? What would the Naturalized vote 'or
Polk have availed, had not more than two bun
dred thousand native brim Electors voted with
ihm ? And these natives have sinned against
political light and knowledge, while the cUes we
now seek to proscribe and punish, however wrong,
believed themselves right.
But we arc going farther than we intended.
Onr obj-ct was only to say that inasmuch as
Native Americanism must have its day, the
sooner it breaks out the better. We sbail pursue
the even tenor of our way, neither j lining with
nor warring against those who thus embark. We
have long acted together, tmd while we are con?
tent they should pursue their cuurse, we ask the
same privilege. The Whig platform is broad
enouga for us to stand on, and we shall trust to
its banner for protection. We ate not unused to
political defeat. We have seen as dark a day
for our Party, though perhaps not so dark for our
Country, as the present. The Whiir; Party is
beaten, it is true, but its course is as clear and i's
duties as imperative as if we had triumphed. Wc
can, by fidelity and devotion, restrain and check
the Destructives. Wo can watch, detect, expose
and rebuke niisgovernment. Wc can turn the
edge and dull the point of the evils and miseries
with which we are threatened. Wc, therefore,
shall resume our watch ujson the Whig ramparts.
We have seen Loco-Focoism, when soaring as
high, in 1624, and again in 1636, as it does now,
brought so low that thete were 'none to do it
himage.' Our opponents have gained, upon is?
sues ruinous to the country, an inglorious triumph.
They will Foon make work enough for Whigs.
The People, when loaded with I resit burthens,
will call again upon us for protection against
It may ntn be amiss to remind the friends why,
Bmarting under the painful sense of a most un?
just and disastrous defeat, are tempted to link
their political "munes with Native Americanism,
that tbe Alien and Sedition Laws rendered a
jjreat party odicus fur fifteen years, and that sub?
sequently the f-jtne party was finally r>\ ?whelmed
aad annihilated by the Hartford Convention ?
The lessons ef experience and the teachings of
history are lost upon those who forget tha^kin

From the Iihnois State Residier. Nov. L
Mormon A/fairs.?Westwa st itement in the
Missouri Republican, that the Mormons and In
diana had assembled in gre it force, near Car
thuge, in Hancock county, Illinois, as :t was tup?
ped, with lnsiile intentions towards sonic ot
the good citizens of t*ic county, i.e.
Ttie facts as we have learned thern ftom an
anthentic source, aro about as follows : The
Circuit Court of that county met on the 2lst.
Tnere were recognized to attend this court, all the
Comm n Council of the City of Nauvoj, and
manv other persons of that place, charged with a
riot in destroying the press and materials of the
Nauvoo Expositor in Juno Ia6t. Those perrons
and their witnesses, making in all about one nun
dred pcrsms, being dot, and most of them unn
b'e to pay tavern bill* in town, and wishing to
avoid trie show of so large a Mormon force ab >ut
the court, came to the very laudable conciu-ior.
of camping out some three or four miies from
town, where they coulu be ut all times ready so
attend court up m a short notice to answer the
charges against them.
In acdit-on to th:s, some twenty Putawatamie
Indians with li.eir women ai.d children, oa Hie-ir
way to hunt iriuskrtls in Iowa, passed through
the country about sixteen miles Irotn Carthene,
about the same time. They had no connection
with Mormons or any other persons in the coun?
ty, but passing through without molesting any
cne ; and this was the great Mormon end Indian
force referred to.
Now for the object of getting up this story,
and the use that was attempted to be made of
it. It was well understood that at the court an
attempt would be made to indict the persons
who were guilty of murdering Joseph and Hy
ram Smith, while they were confined in the Car?
thage Jail, in June last, to prevent which some?
thing must be done by the mob p:irty in Hancock.
They appointed a committee of safety, and di?
rected "that the Judge should be informed of the
resolutions of the meeting, that he might consult
his safety, &c.
Judge Thomas did not wait to be called upon,
but without much form or ceremony, he let those
paivc makers know that he should not obey their
order io adjourn ; und they with all their force
could not deter him from doing his duty. And
furthermore, if any of them appeared about the
Court House with arms or any other hostile de
monsirations, that he would order them instantly
to jail, and if necessary he would be one of the
posse to aid in the execution of the order. This
bo deterred the out-brcakcrs, that they dared not
even present their resolutions to the Court.
The Coulity Court of Hancock County, all of
horn were Mormons except one, at their last
term selected twenty-three Grand Jurymen in
their County : not" one of whom wns a Mormon;
rind this anti-Mormon jury has had the honesty
to indict both Mormons and unti-.Mormons for
uHegc.l violations of law; and among others,
they have indicted Levi Williams, Thomas C
Sharp, Mark Aldrich, Jacob C. Davis, William
.\ . Grover, John Allyn. Wm. Davis, John Wills,
and Wm. Galliher, f ?r the alleged murder of Jo?
seph arid Hyrum Smith. It will he remembered
that the Whig papers of Illinois said that nothing
would be done with those men lor this outrage.
