Wo underslpiid, from n gentleman who
left Raleigh on M outlay evening, and who
arrived in advance of the mail, that on
Monday evjning.retnrns had been received
from "7 counties in addition to those al
ready received, which gave Dudley, tho
Whig candidate for Governor, n majority
nf nearly Ihrcc Ihousiml voles. The coun
ties yet to be heard from will increase tho
majority, 'i'ho Van Huron party had given
up all hope ofclcctiug Spiight.bitt claimed
a majority in Iho House of Commons,
whilst the Whigs felt confident of success
there also. Two stages filled with whiirs
came into Grcenbnrnugh on Tuesday, hiv
ing Hags lying in honor ol the victory,
Wo believe all these particulars can be re
lied upon.
It will not bo forgotten that in 1 1i32 llicrc
were polled for Gen, Jackson in that Slate,
2-1,072 votes, and lor the opposition, only
1,503, giving Iho former n majority of CO,.
290 votes ! Now, when Mr Van Boron
corncs into the field, the majority is revers
ed, the Whig cause is 'triumphant, and the
Kinderhonk jockey is distanced. Tho
Richmond Inquirer admits that the Whigs
have carried tho Legislature and by pu'ting
this and that together, we infer that they
have carried all.

didate.
The utter djspair of tho Van Hurenites,
by the appalling intelligence from this slate,
may he judged of by tho following extract
ofa letter Irom thence, dated St. Louis,
Aug. .ith, io tho 1'ieschi of the Globe :
'"The way Ashley runs it 'beats tho Jews.'
There is no accounting for il." Another
remark of this letter wriier, who is a con
genial spirit with lllnir, says. Tho pat
rouugu ofthu General Government has not
been ucJ to biistain thu republican parly
as far ns wo have u right to expect, no: so
far as the opposition give credit for."
Q,ui:uu consolation. -An Alabama
Van Huron newspaper consoles itself for
defeat in tho following ingenious manner :
"We nro by nn means dispirited. Our
opponents wore beaten in 1 13 t nnd lOJ'i
rurthnr than we nro in 1030. Wo conn
dentlv look forward In thn next contest for
a different result. Tlio Presidential elec
tion will then have passed nway."
CT When wo hear eood nnd true Whigs
pay " What can wo do in Ih) coming clec
lion I fear Van Huron h too strong for us"
the answer should be, "Do your duty ex
nrt yourself, go to the Polls and vote, nnd
leave tho rest lo Providence and n good
caiHC." Timid politicians arc dead weighls
on the republic. When (Jen. Urown nskod
Col. Miller whether Im could carry n strong
fortress by storm, hi nnswnr wns, " will
try. Sir."" Tint is nil that is wanting j try
and defeat Van Huron, and ho i defeated j
never despair never give up never allow
tho vain boasting of vnur adversaries to
shako vnu from tho lino of your duty. If
we were to believe what tho army ofodico
holders tell us, Harrison would not get n
single state in tho Union. Now wo say
distinctly nnd unequivocally, Van Iiurcn
cnnnol be elected. Ho had gained all up lo
August that he could possibly gain ; from
that period to November next, ho low ho
goes down. Tho recent elections in Ken
tucky, Indiana. North Carolina. Louisiana,
Alabama and Missouri sufficiently indicate
the impossibility of Air Van Huron's receiv
ing the voles ol the South and West. Sime
of his friontls still, however, claim for his
Mippirt Virginia nnd Pennsylvania. The
Slntcs of Oliio, North Carolina, Kentucky,
Tenncsscoe, Massachusels, South Carolina,
Georgia, Maryland, Indiana, Alabama,
Vermont, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri,
Delaware and Arkansas, which will aU go
for Harrison, makes n majority againn Van
lluren, cxelutive of Pennsylvania or Virgin
ia, fourteen although wo consider Virginia
safe, and Pennsylvania sure. JV. I'. Star.
Our lukewarm politicians, the waiters
upin Providence, who have boon lamenting
over the inevitable ruin of our country, and
yet r 'fused to net like men nnd freemen to
recover t riot r rights, are now nobly relitiUcu
by the eflorts and the glorious triumph of
the North Carolina Wings. Had tliev too 1
folded l heir hands, and given up all for lost
without n struggle, ruthless proscription
and party violence, would have itill con
tinned their sway in that portion of our land.
Hut unintimidated by power, uinwed by
menace, uncnrriipted by the spoils, the gal
lon! sons nf North Carolina have rushed
gallantly to tho field, and with upwards of
15,000 majority agiinst them, nothing
daunted, contended hand to hand, and glo
riously conquered the enemy. Alb. Ado.
The Rkpuolican Pautv. It is well
known that the friends of Mr. Van Huron
assume to themselves the name of the re
publican party, but by what right wo should
like to know. Is it hecano Iheir favorite
has uniformly opposed tho leading men of
l lint parly, while he thought ho could tie
rive advantage from opposing them ? Is it
because ho was opposed to Madison, Clin
ton, and Jackson .' Isitbeciuso ho advo-
rated the election to the Senate of the U.
States, of that high Inncd Federa'ist, Ru-
rushmg? is it because lie was a Missouri
rcstriclionist f Is it because the federal
States of Rhode Island and Connecticut
have suddenly abandoned I heir principles,
and hoisted the Van Huron fl lg ? I i short,
is it because t It c republican slates of the
south n'ud west are almost unanimously op
posed to him ?
.Often was it said in 1023, that the con
test between Gen. Jackson and Mr. Adams
was a contest for principles, not for men
All the stnlos which vutud for Jackson
were called democratic states, and those
which sustained Adam- were termed fede
ral states. At l hut time. Maine, New
Hampshire, Rhode Islnnd, Connecticut and
New Jersey voted for Adams. These
stales arc all nou for Van Huron.

Ai.iiF.MAni.r. anceiioti:.-TIio wags made
somewhat free with the Hero in his lain
progress to the hermitage. A citizen of
Albemarle, tells tho following nnecdote:
A Mis.-ifSippian passing down Mio road, un
derMood that President Jackson was ex
pected in nn hour or Iwo tin his way west
wardly. He stopped at H iwen's null, nnd
informing tho miller that Gen. Jackson
would pass in a carriage and four while
horses in a little whllo, asked him to deliv
er the General the following message :
"That he was glad to hear lie was going
to the herfniiagu, and hoped he would stay
there, for ho had done mischief enough at
Washington." In a few minutes the Pres.
idcut cast up, and the miller, faithful to Ins
trust, hailed liun."Mr. Jackson! Mr. Jack
son !" The Pro.-ident, with bis accustom
cd courtesy, called a halt, and pulled oil'
his hat to the hailing party ; and the miller
coming up, nsk'd htm, if ho had met agon
lleman a mile or so down the road: The
Presider.t replied ho had. Well Mr. Jack

The editor of the Canton Democrat, the
most brawling v i 11 1 fi -r of General Harrison
that is known alntil those parts, having tho
cfironlery in his list sheet to pronounce
him a coward, the abortion was promptly
met nnd refuted by the very individual to
whom ho referred for nn endorsement of
tho fabrication. Jas. Downing, one of the
Commissioners of Slnrk county, is the gen
tleman that was appealed to by this mighty
politician. The Democrat says :
" We nro informed by responsible men,
that Jus. Dnoning. nno of ourcitinty com
missioncrs, whosorved under General Har
rison ns n captain during the last war, in
speaking of him ((Jen, Harrison) gavo It as
his opinion, tint General Harrison ahoiys
tort n coward, nnd that ho always looked
upon him as 6tieh. Wc could also add as
being worthy of remark, that wo look upon
Capt. Downing, although opposed to us in
politics, as a man unimpeachable. Our in
formants are also men ol unblemished cha
racters for truth and veracity."
Mr. Dawning says
" I pronounce tho assertion made in the
Democrat of the 2nd inst. that I should
have called Gdii. Harrison a coward, ns to'
tally untrue from beginning to end. I have
never made such an assertion nor do I bo
liovo it. I know him to have been a brave

eral Harrison's farm, at tho N'orth Iiond oflho

as fin a corn ground as nny in tho world, and it
is not suittod for whoat or small grain of nny

Who ark tiik Ani-Tocr.ATs. The Len
don Morning Herald, speaking of our new
Minister to England, Mr Stevenson, who
is ono of Mr Van Huron's followers and
friends, says he is " likely to be popular
with the Aristocracy. "
Tho Globe, whether ns "oflicinl" or ''un
official," wo n-o not informed, announces
that Mr Van Huron rides in an American,
and nut in an English carriage. Thonaugh.
ty Whigs, il appears, have put him into tin
English carriage, with English horses, and
English men ns drivers, and therefore, on
this account, it is probable tho Globe thinks
il nn nfi'ur of sufficient importance to take
him nut. The naughty Whigs nre very
wrong, and we must set them right.
When Mr Van Huron first came hack
from England, ho came back with many
airs, Willi much of the petit m'litrc in his
manners, and more in his eqtiippago : but
the correspondents in Wuslnugtnn, and the
male society there, which, inlhe absence
of men's wives, daughters, nnd lady-friends,
is not tho t nit it polished in the world, soon
rubbed him down and brought him back
within the American pale. Mr. Van llu
ren. we beliovo, did bring over with him
an English carriage; but be this as it may,
the one he sported in at Washington was a
splendid one, and an honor, if made here,
tu any American who made it. Ills horses
were the finest that could be found; but fur
this we do not blame him, as who would
not have fine horses when he could but gel
them. His servants and this was a piece
of fully wcro Knglish servants -and which
was a greater folly still- -wero clad in live
ry. Tho servants could not ho mistaken,
such fitio, full, 'leor.drinkiiig boys did they
seom lo hi. A folly wo say tho importing
of English servants was, for Mr. Van Hu
ron who stands nt I ho head of tho "Dcmo
cratio parly." which nt limes lliinks tho
unrso nl n man (soothe New Hampshire
Pntriot) for hiving a clean shirt on, should
never have madcuch an importation, there
by insinuating that none but those who had
been the livery men cf dukes, and viscounts
and lords, wore fit servants for liitn, though
by the way, wc don't blame ono for ob
taining English servants when ho can got
one. A fully ngam it was tn clutho theso
servants in livery, for a livery, like a coat
of arms, is not in very good taste in this part
of the country, where perhips half of our
rich men some day or other wurc a livery
themselves, nnd where not ono in ten of iu
can tell whoso sorvau's our fa'hers wore.
Hut ono of the most nmosing exhibitions
in Wnshington, tho fust winter Mr.Van
Huren came there, was tho witnessing of
tho manner in which he was forced to dofif
his plumage, feather by feather. The
Washington correspondent- -thu Whig
rogues began upon his livery, and anon
that went oh", and his lino portly English
servants, who had no doubt sported thoir
feathers and regimentals in Regent and
Hind streets, and upon tho Houlevards of
Paris, looked liko so many peacocks with
their tails cut oil'. Tho Washington cor
respondents, the greater rogues they were,
when flushed wild this triumph, then began
upon Iho English carriage, and there they
won nno'her victory, lor the English car
riage was put nside and a new republican
looking wa taken in its stead. Tho Eng
lish servan's as yet we belive, hold their
places. Tho correspondents to this day,
as wo understand, have not won a victory
over them. JV. Y. Ilcprcss.
