The political tournament at Salem, Fauquier
county, Vu., on Saturday last, between General
?ppa Hunton and Colonel John 8. Mosby, as already
Stated In these despatches, promised at one time
to result in an affair of honor between Dr. J. B.
withers, or warremon, anu tnc guerma convert.
Just how this was to be accomplished was a
mystery, but that serions work wa.s at one time
Contemplated Is not denied. It is stated that ever
since Mosbv resolved to support Grant as tho
lesser of two evils he has been overbearing and
* disposed to question the sanity or thoso who
favored the election of Greeley. Dr. Withers, who
I has been Mayor of Warrenton, and who enjoys the
esteem or a largo circle of friends, was one of the '
first to avow himself In favor of Greeley's election.
On Saturday last It is reported that a gentleman
Bt the Warrenton Hotel playfully remarked that the |
conservative party would not send its trained
'Speakers to Salem to answer Colonel Mosbv, but
fould send a novice in such mutters, referring to
r. Withers. This remark was communicated to
"Colonel Mosby. and, construing It into contemplated
affront, he In his h :at made it known that

The Official Vote of Eightytwo
KAi.Einu, N. 0., August 8, 1872,
The agony of suspense is not yet ovor. Doubt
darkens every countenance ana the pain of suspense,
metaphorically speaking, looks oat of every
eye. Public Interest has become fatigued and six
days of watching and waiting have wearied the
politicians as well as the people. Jnst think of
ii i pia uiiys gone ana tuc result ta North Carolina
still unknown. Speculation blunders in hopeless
confusion and sleep finds the weary watcher In that
state of perplexity that he dreams of fabulous
majorities and heavy losses In the same connection.
but that It requires the official count to determine
the result, and nothing but the officially ascertained
vote can extricate the returns from the utter confusion
In which exaggerated reports and lying
despatches have Involved them. All the ciphering
thus far has been done on a hypothetical basis,
and no two chalk the same result.
Tho fact 1a, they have 'been making returns
too much to order, and tho political
complexion of the party figuring has had much to
do with the figures set down. For example, the
Chairman of the Republican Executive Committee
figures out a handsomo majority for Caldwell of
from fifteen hundred to three thousand, allowing
for probable democratic gains and republican
losses lu the counties not yet heard from, and
In no event, he declares, can tho majority for Caldwell
fall below 1,500, let those absent counties go as
they may.
On the other hand, tho democrats continue to
make Merrlmon majorities, and so contradiction
keeps confusion worse conToundcd. I begin
to send you the official votes by counties
as they come In. So far I liavo received
thirty coantles, which I scud In these
despatches. Although thirty counties have
been heard from officially, all but the
following have been heard from through one
channel and another:?Clay, Alleghany, Ashe, vratanga,
Macon, Cherokee, Jackson, Transylvaniaeight
counties, which in l?70 gave Shtpp, democratic
Attorney General, a majority of 1,320. Polk,
a strong republican county of the West, this year
comes up with a democratic gain of 129, and Hyde,
in the east, separated from civilization by the
classic waters of the Tar and Pamlico Rivers and
their tributaries, has Just been heard from, and
brings a democratic gain ot fifty-live over the tihlpp
majority of 1870.
According to the counting at democratic head*
quarters Caldwell Is now ahead 550 votes, with the
eight above-named counties to hear from, which,
if they give Merriiuon Shlpp's majority of 1870, will
elect Merrlmon by 761 majority; but this result Is
figured on wild and totally unreliable speculation
born of reports commendable only in that thoy
"strive to please," but not founded on fact, like
Ned Duntllne's "Blood for Blood; or, "the Infatuated
The train from the west having failed of news
yesterday, everyoody stood on the tiptoe of expectation
to-day, but nothing came. That Inaccessible
nest of counties known as Transmountain, North
Carolina, are as silent and Indifferent to the universal
anxiety and Interest here a* that cool people
are Innocent of the national, If not universal, political
Importance with which the times have suddenly
invested them. Finding that the trains and
telegraph from the west brought nothing I telegraphed
all tlie nearest and most accessible
In the hope that some Intelligence had escaped
across the border, but these points responded to
me with tho unwelcome Intelligence that they had
nothing whatever. I am quite sure that an election
was held in tho transmountaln counties, as
all the returned summer tourists from that altitude
of civilization agree In their accounts that
the country Is inhabited; and as the tendency of
the average American 13 to vote, they must
have had an election, but when aud wherefore is
past finding out, even by Herald enterprise, and
so I leave It to time and chance to determine, I
rely with a faint hope on the train from tho mountains
to-morrow, but If nothing comes I shall insist
that you send me the Livingstone discoverer, and
let his instructions be "On, Stanley; on!" A3 the
result has suspended betting has gone on, and I
hear of considerable sums taken at a distance by
republicans of this city by telegraph.
in solemn and melancholy readiness, await the
torch at a hundred points in this State and Virginia,
but not one has been ligh'ed. The historic
democratic rooster was numerously displayed in
the pages of a Wilmington dally a few mornings
since, but he has ceased to crow, and
the radical organ here has sent to have
tho feathered lordling fetched np for their tieneflt
against the announcement of tho result, which they
now confidently assume must be In their favor. I
cannot hazard the prediction, but the appearances
to-night are more favorable to Caldwell's election,
while democrats concedc it, and are blue accordingly.

The counties to hear from In 1870 gave a democratic
majority of i,?75, and In 1871, in faror of the
Convention, thev gave a majority of 1,745. By this
showing, if these remaining counties vote pre- J
clsely as they did in 1870, Caldwell will have
a majority of 365; it they maintain their
democratic majority of 1871, Caldwell will
havo a majority of 295. It Is announced

iking the arm of Hon. Thomas Davis, again
reasted the beating "surf" of humanity, aud alter
esperatc struggles succeeded in reaohlng the dinig
hall. Considerable delay ensuod hi dishing up
lie clams, and iu tho meantime oruwds of tunbllous
Individuals tried to scale the windows and
teal their way Into tho honor ol dining with a
robable President, but thoy were neatly caught in

mbstantlai food the Philosopher and the two hunIred
ctyi&en ones who were permitted to share his
llnuor filled themselves to the utmost.
Then the Philosopher abruptly rose aud plunged

and remarked to a gentleman near him toot if he
made a speech everything he said would b? telegraphed
over the country and misinterpreted.
" Thoro are New York reporters enough here to
send It correctly,'' responded the gentleman.
Ah, yen," replied the Sage, "l ran trust them;
[ tint night editors and telegraph operators are too '
likely to get If wrong."
The hand shaking lasted fully half an hoar, lfr.
Oreeley standing during that time under the protecting
shelter or an umbrella to avoid the rays of >
the sun. During the hand shaking a lady
sent him a handsome bouquet, which ho
; carrrled with him during tne real of tho
day. The crowd had spread greatly, so that it
touched upon the edge of a slight blutT which waa

"That's typical, Mr. Oroeley," said ft gentleman

they tumbled over on your side." The Philosopher
expressed his approbation by a bland smile. It
was finally proponed that the Sane take a quiet
turn through the ground*, but a quiet turn was an
utter Impossibility. The moment ne left the friendly
defences of the piazza his guard of friends, comprising
Mr. Davis and Mr. Sprague, was swayed
buck and forth like reeds before tho wind, and it
' was only tho oak like steadiness of tho Philosopher
that saved him from being rent In twain. Tie was

It had itecn the intention of Mr. Greeley to proceed
to Providence by tlio boat, bnt fears were entertained
riiat hifl presence on the boat might occasion
Huch a crowd that it would be dangerous, and
It was finally determined he should go In Mr.
Davis' carriage. When lie got Into tho open carriage,
at nbout four o'clock to return, the crowd
about his Immediate neighborhood and on tho
piazzas of the various cottages numbered fully ten
thousand. A cheer from every throat burst forth
at once as he stood tip In the carriage and bowed
to them. Charles K. (ionium, liberal candidate for
Congress from this district, proposed
which was responded to with even a more hearty
zest, and Immediately afterwards proposed "Three
cheers for Universal Amnesty," which called forth
a perfect uproar of acclamation. To these demonstrations
Mr. Greeley responded by lifting his hat
and bowing. Mr. Davis and Mr. Wardwell jumped
lulo the carriage and tho panv drove oil". Tho skipper
