We should concede , the district, it we vyere not folly persuaded, not- J "withstanding the majority given for the Jackson can- j (Aidâtes, that Harford county is decidedly for the Administration, and will prove to be so next month, Harford county has had a series of political dis tractions, not unlike those ot Annapolis. 1 tie in veteracy of the dispute between the Federal and Republican paities, tor some years after it hadsuh sided considerably elsewhere, was continued in H ir ford by the expedient adopted by the Federalists, in conjunction With some aspiring and disappointed members from the Republican ranks who seceded under the name ot Anti-Caucus, and attempted by j the aid of former opponents to gain what iheir own party thought them not deserving of. The contest thus renewed under the new appellation of Caucus and Anti-Caucus, still continues with great warmth in Harford, and, had more influence in the late election than the presidential question itself. VV e have heard ot several veiy influential Administra- ■ 270 lion men wiio exerted every nerve for the success of the Jackson ticket, because it so happened that the Jaokson ticket was composed of Anti-Caucus men, and the Administration ticket uf Caucus m—. Colonel Sewpll himself of the state senate, with his extensive influence was in their ranks. YVe are authorised by a knowledge of those facts to calcu late upon a very material difference in the result ol the election in this county in November. We have heretofore claimed a majority of 200 in Harford, and we are strengthened in that opinion by the result ot the past election. Cecil county, associated with Harford, gave on Monday an average Jackson majority ot 9tl votes. Last year the Jackson ticket was elected in that l county by a majority of 500 votes.—This rate of change continued to November, insures us a major ity in that county. We also confidently calculate upon gaining this district. Seventh district. Kent county—average Administration majority Queer. Ann's do.

District 6, is now lor the Administration. District 5, will be alone for Jackson. TEN TO ONE!!". When Maryland is to decide the contest, this is the way she performs her duly. From the Baltimore Prtriot THE VOICE OF MARYLAND. The returns from all die counties are now in,and the parties in the House of Delegates, stand Ad ministration forty-nine —Jackson thirty-one. We therefore' congratulate the people of Mary land on the glorious restait (iftheir efforts in support of the civil institutions of their country, against the mos* formidable attack that ever was or that ever will be again made against them. We say the re sult of their efforts, because, although the battle is to be fought Over again in November, we have suffi cient evidence of our strength to assure us of a still more decisive victory—' -it will be a Yorktown battle , and a YO'RKTO*\'N SURRENDER TO HIE CAUSE OF LIBERTY! We shall have every district in the Stale except that of Baltimore coun ty. This district, composed of the city of Baltimore, Annapolis and Anne Arundle county, will, beyond all doubt, elect the two Administration Electors. That of Cecil and Harford will also elect the Ad ministration Elector, for we have conversed with gentlemen of the first respectability from Elkton, wlm say that that election district of Cecil, (who h was the only one in which the Administration had not a majority,) will certainly go with us in Novem ber, whea the Presidential question shall be voted upondiiectly—local considerations having influen ced the voters on Monday last. Harford also will put birth her full strength, which she did not do, from local causes on the Delegate ticket. The vote of Queen Anne's was also not a test ol the strength uf parties in that county. A gentleman from that county, and warm friend of General Jackson, says that die tickets were very much split and cut up by local considerations and personal preferences, that the vote given for Delegates is by no means consid ered there as indicative of the strength of parties on the Presidential.questinn, and that Queen Anne's ill without doubt give a handsome majority for the Administration in November next. These are all the districts that wear the least appearance of a doubtful character, and even that vanishes when these circumstances are properly considered and un derstood. We shall therefore give'TEN VOIES for the re-election of our present worthy Chief Mag istrate, JOHN QUINCY ADAMS, and in support of the American spstem. Maryland thus call-, up on her sister States, Pennsylvania, New York, Ken tucky and the rest of the sisterhood, to do likewise lor the good cause. 121 270 1 To out There 180 90 From the Marylander. j- hp rP?n |, n f the Delegate election in this State, , )S heard from, has proved a complete damper to the not- J iic | ss011 party.

We have heard of many of the most prominent friends of the Administration who not only voted for thp Jackson ticket, but who openly espoused their cause in consideration of their being the anti-caucus par ty. From the best sources of information we are enabled to state,that tiie real Administration vote of Harford County will give from two hundred to two hundred and fifty majority. As for Cecil, we think there is no one of candor and intelligence, who will deny but that it will go for the Adminis tration. Of the upper district there is ns little doubt ; and I as to the two lower districts on the Western Shore, 38 1 ibniel the the really is 27 in on came have the the he dence none but the zealots of the party have ever claimed ■ them. The Eastern.

From the National Intelligencer. If it be true of all nations heretolore^that no nation has ever paid oft'a public debt, the possibility uf it will be demonstrated, if the wise policy of the pre sent Administration be imitated by its successors, l'he fact that four millions of dollars more is to be paid oft'on the first of January,, making nine millions /laid off within one year, is a decisive testimony in lavor of the prudence, the economy, the sagacity of those now at the helm of affairs, under the direc noti of whom the finances have so improved, that not o dy the whole of the ten millions of the sinking fund annually appropriated has been applied to the payment of Public Debt, but also theurrears of that lurid have been paid, its deficiencies made good— an object the importance i f which will be duly es timated by ail thuse who have ever been in public life, or who have the least possible knowledge of fiscal operations. We have great pleasure in sub mitting to our readers the following statement, com piled from official sources, showing the effect of the measures of tins Administration on the finances, of the country : ci comparative view of the state of the Treasury of the United States, on the first day of January. 1825, and the probable state thereof, on the first of Janua ry. 1829,* in connexion with I he payments an account of The principal of the public debt, during the years 1825, 1826, 1827, and 1828.

This Iit>le state, faithful through the whole of the revolution, profusely mingling much of her best blood with that of the gallant and far-famed " Mar yland line"—and first to adopt the constitution of the United States, is the first also, by her late elec tion, in tlie field to defend the peace, liberty and safety of the republic, in the re-election of John Q. Adams; and Maryland is along side her generous neighbor again, having a'so triumphed in tlie same most worthy cause. As the patriotic soldiery from these states were among the foremost and most effi cient in turning the tide of the war in our favor in the South, in the revolution,—it is with great -atis fartion that we again find them as pioneers in the righteous cause of defending bv the ballot that which was won bv the sword. LA US DEO ! Noah, Judge ami King of Israel, who sometimes says the tru ll, on a certain occasion declared that ••Little Delaware had a heart big enough for a whole continent." This state has proved herself worthy of her M'Kean'sand Rodney's, Haslett's and Kirk wood's uf the days long past. We friends thp cause par are of two think who and Shore, From the National Journal■ B TRIUMPH IN DELAWARE. f| The elections in this Slate for a Representative If in Congress, and the State Legislature, took place IF on Tuesday. The result is such as we had antici- V pated. The whole strength of the Jackson party ! came into the field, to meet there only defeat and disappointment. Sleepless nights and days of toil have been vainly devoted bv Mr M'Lank to secure the State to the Jackson party. He has scattered the flowers of his oratory to the winds : hereafter, he will find sufficient employment, happy if suc cessful, in retrieving his lost giound in the confi dence of his constituents. "Louis ^M'Laoe. From the N. Y. American, Oct. 9. Mr. Senator Louis McLane, of Delaware, has been stumping it, recently in this State ; and in the course of his itinerant harangues, has, it would seem by the reports of bis speeches in the Dela ware. Journal, been particularly loud and confident in reiterating the charge of bargain and corruption against Mr. Clay, for accepting office under Mr ,Adams. This is quite in character for an individual who, from the extreme of aversion and distrust, has like Mr. McLane, passed to the opposite extreme of admiration and confidence, ns regarde General Jaekson. and his pretentions to the Presidency. Before doing so, and binding himself to the sup port of such a cause, by all the means which are so recklessly employed for it, doubtless Mr. McLane braced himseiftothe callous endurance of the ma ny irrefragable proofs of "apostacy" (this is his own word as applied to the President) from reason and sound principles, to which his change of opinion— disinterested, doubtless—has exposed him. We must lake leave to add one word more on the subject oft lie charge ofcorrupiioninMr.Clny'sappointment. We give the statement in the words of our informant whose name is at the service of Ml'. McLane. " In the Spring of 1826. Mr. McLane stated to a friend of the Administration that he considered the charge of bargain and corruption made against the President and Secretary of State as without the sli ghtest foundation, and that anv man of honor could, with perfect propriety, take office under the Admin istration, and inquired particularly, why Mr. Van Buren was not taken upby the Administration as a friend, instead of Noble and Thomas ; and said that such a course would do more to conciliate Mr. Crawford's friends than any other." Thus it would seem that, one year after Mr. Clay's appointment as Secretary of State, Mr. Me Lane considered the charge of bargain and corrup tion as *■ without the sligliest foundation;" expres sed the opinion, that ant one might, with honor, take office under the Administration, and surprise that Mr. Van Buren had not been taken up by them ! Is there any thing in this last idea that may serve to elucidate the present opposition both of Mr. Van Buren and Mr. McLane ? At the late election for Inspectors, in the county of Bucks, the friends of the Administration carried all before them. Even in Pnylestown and Bristol, the strong holds of Jacksnnism, the Administration tickets succeeded bv decided majorities. Bucks will cive die People's Electoral Ticket, a majority of at least one thousand. •tv From the .V. V. Statesman. NEW SPINNING MACHINE. Important invention. —We this morning examined and saw in operation a most ingenious and valuable machine for spinning flax and lu mp, invented by Dr. Bell and Mr. Dver, two intelligent and highly respectable gentlemen from New England, entered upon the prosecution of their plars last win ter, and have now brought them to a successful ter mination. As the patent has not been secured, we are not permitted to give a full description of the in vention ; but the following particulars will be in («resting to our readers, especially to those who wish well to the cause uf American Manufac tures. They 'This machine is constructed on an entirely upw principle, having no analogy to the process for the cotton, woollen, worsted, or other manufacture. The quality of the vartis produced is pronounced, l>y c.omneteut judges, to surpass other linen yarns in as great a proportion as cotton or woollen yarns, spun bv the present improved machinery, are super ior to those wrought bv hand. The size of the thread can be varied to anv extent, from that of cambric to that of the lopevarns used in the manu facture of cordage. In tiie degree of velocity, its operation is limited only bv the quickness which the The spindles and fliers are capable of supporting, instrument now in operation produces about the same quantity of thread per spindle, finenes being equal, as the throstle spindles in the cotton manu facture. The whole formation of tile thread from dressed flax is completed at one operation, material laid on the machine is wound upon the spools ready for the loom,without the intervention of anv assistance ; the whole being effected by the rotary motion communicated from drums. Indeed all the motions of the instrument at e uf a circular The of Q. in the kind. So far as our obseivation, or knowledge extends, this invention is entirely original, and nothing of the kind exists in the workshops of the United States or Europe, where fabrics from flax are entirely wrought bv hand. 'The manufactures or linens will now be placed upon tlie same ground and employ the same faculities as cottons. It has been estimated, that, up m moderate calculations.two million of dol lars may be saved annually to this country by the reduced expenses of linen fabrics, effected by this invention. If it be not introduced abroad, and foreign prices thus diminished, the products of our own looms will supply our markets and prevent im poriations from maintaining competition Such >s nur impression of the importance of this machine. Those who are incredulous on the subject, may have their doubts removed bv an examination of spe cimens of tlie thread at this office, or by inspecting the machina at the corner of Pine and Water streets.
