Breathitt, us u defeat of !\lr Clay, or have been imposed upon by tho Te Drums which Jackso. liism has chained for its pretended victory in Ken tucky, let thorn read the annexed article from the Iwxington Reporter of the 22d, and have their doubts removed. "The Result.—The probablo result of tho recent election for Governor &. Lt. Governor, nnd members ot tlio blate Legislature is now known, although the returns havo not yet reached us in such a form as to enable us t«# give the entire vote, or to determine with accuracy tho majorities of the successful candi dates. These wo shall dot know until the official returns aro published. Tho Sheriffs meet at Frank fort this day to compare the polls of tho several counties, and in our next paper we hope to give the entire vote of the State “John Breathitt, the Jackson candidate, Select ed Governor, over his competitor Judge Buckner, by a small majority, and James T. Morehead, the National Republican candidate, is elected Lieut. Governor, over Benjamin Taylor, by a probable majority of from two to three thousand votes. “In both branches of the Legislatuie, tho Na tional Republicans have an overwhelming majori ty. Tho Somite, which consists of 38 members, will stand—National Republicans twenty-tiro; Jackson sixteen. Tho House of Representatives, which consists of 100 members, will stand—Na tional Republicans sixty-five; Jackson thirty-Jire, or a majority in favor of tho National Republi cans of ahni.s’ tiro to one. Three counties, re ported to have elected National Republican Repre sentatives, uro not included in this estimate of majorities, which, if tho reports bo true, will in crease our number to 68, and reduce the Jackson members to 32. “The defeat of Judge Buckner in attributable solely to religious prejudices, and local feelings. In st ■ oral of the strongest National Republican districts, where these causes operated most, the vo ters could not bo prevailed upon to attend the polls. In one district alone, they caused us a loss of at least fifteen hundred votes, and in every section of tho State they operated more or loss against us. The •accurate returns, so far as they have been received, show an aggregate diminution in the poll of the se veral counties, since 1828, of many thousand votes. “We perceive that several of the Jackson presses in tho State have already raised the shout of victo ry! this is done to produce an effect abroad.— Victory!—a Jackson victory in Kentucky!! Where is it? Tho result of the election shows un almost total defeat of the Jackson party in the State.— In the general rout of their forces, they havo pre served nothing but nn accidental majority of a few votes for their Gubernatorial candidate. They have not a reasonable pretext for this claim to vic tory, which they urge by forced shouts. And their leaders, we are conceived, have scarcely the faintest hope of success in the November election. Those of the party who prefer to be candid, yield that the state is against them. The returns of the election nre proof positive that the National Re. publicans are in a large majority, and this is yield ed by almost unanimous consent. Tho shout of victory! by the Jackson presses, elicits no response from the bosoms of the members of their party, and is only raised to cover, if possible, their disgrace and almost complete overthrow. “A victory to the Jackson party! when the Lieut. 'Governor, a largo majority in the Senate, fc TWO to ONE in the House of Representatives are n gainst them! This looks much like a victory!— No; we assure our friends, both at homo and abroad, that the Jackhon party has gained no vic tory in this State, nor is there senreely a possible chance that they will ever gain one." MISSOURI ELECTION. The returns from Missouri are incomplete,but as far as they go, arc of an encouraging aspect.— Heretofore, Jncksonisin has been all ascendent in that State. The Bank Veto was tho signal for or ganizing, but unfortunately it was received too short a time before tho election to permit of a tho rough organization, or the principles to be made a test in all tho elections. In that of a Mem ber ofCongress alone, the line was distinctly drawn. Gen. Ashley, elected as a Jackson man, voted for the Bank, and in liia entire course in Congress, was found arrayed against Jacksonism, and is well known indeed to be a Jackson man but in nume, if lie is even one thus far. Tho best proof of this is, that tho “whole hog” Bcntonian Jackeonians renounced him, and started as their candidate for Congress in opposition to him, a Mr. Wells, a gentleman of congenial “whole hogism.” We aro assured that the relative vot'- given Messrs. Ashley and Wells, is the true criterion of the political com plexion of Missouri. Tho St. Louis Times says— “The vote for representative in Congress shows the true state of public sentiment, and was the only one in which principles alone were made the tes . In that election there was nosplitling—no division, and wo may also add, there were no foraign or im proper inlluonces. At the election last November, General Aslily bad a majority in this county of 402, at Ibis it amounts to 576. A faithful fact needs no comment.” Tho same paper of August 18th contains returns from twenty.seven counties, which display an ag gregate for Ashley of 6,443—for Wells, of 5,092.— The counties of Wayne, Scott, Rails, Gasconade, Crawford, and apart of Franklin, were to hear from. Tho contest has been closo, &, proves, ter minate ns it may have done, that Missouri is a doubtful Stale. For Governor, there has been also a close con. test, between Dr. John Bull, tho Republican, and Daniel Dunklin, the “whole hog" candidate. The same counties display this result—Bull 4,947— Dunklin 4,778—Bull ahead thus far. The same ob servation is suggested by the gubernatorial strug. gle—Missouri is proved to be doubtful. Jackson ism is declining there, as every whero else. It is moving downward, and it is the nature of that mo tion to acquire acceleration at every step. Were tho election 6 months off, there could be little doubt how it would result. As it is, there is enough tooncourgc sanguine expectation. INDIANA. Wo find the following in tho Louisville Journal A Focus, of the 23d. The sky in every quarter, looks lowering for the Hero. Indiana in all cal culations, has been given to Jackson. “INDIANA.” "The citizens of almost every county in Indiana fire holding public meetings to deliberate on the best means of sustaining the Bank of tho United Stales, and preventing tho re-election of Prerident Jackson, (in Tuesday evening, we received a let ter from a highly respectable genlloinan in Indian apolis, containing the following language:—“Wo have abundant reason to be satisfied with the re sult of the late election in this 8tatc. A largo ma jority of National Republicans aro elected to the Legislature, A. 1 have no hesitation in assuring you, that the Electoral Ticket, fuvoralde to Henry Clay and John Sergeant, will lie secured, in the fall, by pn overwhelming majority. I perceive, that some of the Jackson politicians are reckoning Indiana among the doubtful States. She is not doubtful.” PAYMENT OF TYTIIES IN IRELAND. Tho reader is aware of the universal combina tion into which tho Catholics o Ireland have enter rd, to resist the payment of tylhes. The univer fsality o the combination, and the orderly and peaceable means used to effect its objects, prove that the popular action is controulcd and directed by able heads. The success has answered to the expectation. The established Clergy arc starved out. No tythes are paid. Even thoso who would be willing • o pay, arc deterred by tho consequences, which leave them much in the condition of those mo narciis who incurred tho pcnulty of lire Papa! inter dict. II the law is called in, and property distrain, ed fo* payment, tho parson gains nothing. Nobo dy will buy—nobody durst buy—and Paddy’s cow branded “tythes,” returns in triumph from the p'ace of sale, to give milk anew for the “14 ehil der”. Wo hear some people exclaiming against this unruly conduct of the Irish; but for our single self, we are delighted with it. There is so much justice in chousing the parson—there is so much and so good reason, in eluding tho exactions of a Hierar chy imposed upon Ireland, contrary toiler wishes, and to every principle of religious and political li berty, that any means, (Revolution itself,) arc just ifiable, which can bring redress. English alarm anticipates an extension of the system to t lie rents of Absentees, and generally, to whatever is con nected with tho oppression of Ireland, and this alarm is certainly well grounded. No man can possibly believe that Ireland will ever again be pa cific, until one of two things has occurred—the concession in full, of all her just, political demands or the extinction of the insurrectionary spirit once more, in tho blood of the Irish People. That spirit is abroad in the world—jn England itself— nay, it animates those who influence tho destinies of (.real Britain—which renders a resort to the bayonet as the instrument of subjugation, extremely improbable. England will have to do that last, which had bettor have been done first—restore Ire land to her independence, and depend upon the af. fection of freemen, rathor than the submission of slaves, for that benefit which was anticipated from the Union. We invito attention to the extract from the New York American:— “We mentioned yesterday in our summary of foreign news, that much concern and somo appre hension was felt in England uSout the various movements taking place in the sister kingdom upon tho tithe question. I he Anii-tithc meetings, which aro now held in various parts of Ireland, aro characterized by a coolness in council and system atic form of procedure, from which England has more to apprehend than from the tumultuous as semblage and rash conduct of mere mobs, however large. There is a unity of purpose among them, and a general sobriety of demeanor, which enables them to act with all the energy arising from concert and good counsel. Of this our readers may judge by the instances us wo find them given in an English paper:—A farmer, or man of respectable landed estate for instance, offends against the gencrnl fiat and pays tithes. Instant, ly a meeting takes place upon a neighboring hill; lie is at once denounced; lie is placed under the bann cf civil excommunication; few will speak to him; none will work for him; the laborer is for bidden to mow his hay, rotting on the ground for want of hands to sever it; and the ostler is pro hibited from giving a drop of water to his cattle, famishing for thirst in a parching season. He is denied all assistance—his cattle, unmilkcd in tor rid weather, aro left to sicken, and madden, and die, becauso no man, or even woman, in his neigh borhood, dare yield to the impulses of common compassion, to relievo the agonized and perishing brutes of the denounced delinquent, and lie is com! polled, in order to save his whole herd from death, a nd his entire property from ruin, “to surrender the dignity of a man—to fall down upon his knees to this tyrannous populace, actually to kiss tho earth on which he kneels before lliem, to beg their pardon and in prostrato posture to declare that he will not longer pay a legal debt, becauso it forms a part of this prohibit* d impost.” Again, an extensive coach contractor offends, and his horses remain unbar, ncssod, when the vehicle arrives laden with passen. gers or goods, on ihe transmission of which the comfort*, the peace, the trade, perhaps the bread, of lamilies are dependent. The communications be. tween thcmelropolis and a whole line of thorough fare in a country, whose inhabitants live, and barely livo by their industry alone, is interrupted by the stoppage ofllic only vehicles that exist for that com munication; and the‘very springs from which life is supplied to hundreds of the laboring poor arc sudden ly dosed in obedience to the dictates of this rural le gislature. Where the movements of the peasantry are thus methodical and efficient, it is apparent there must be some individuals of intelligence and influ ence behind tlie curtain, who act as moderators, and regulate wnile they direct their measures.— Proceedings so advisedly conducted, must, while they alarm, still claim the respect of tho British Government. They offer a fearful comment upon the proud threat of Mr. O’Connell in the House of Commons, that if England did not at once relieve his country from the oppression ofthetythc system, the people of Ireland would soon place themselves beyond tho power of British legisla tion. “Were St. Paul (says tho Condon Morning Chronicle) to return to life and to pay a visit to Ireland, ho would he extremely puzzled to under stand how, in a Christian Church, a bishop should revel in tho produco of 100,000 acres of fertile land, and the tithes of a number of churches, while the poor, to whom all the funds *>f the church were originally given, wore perishing around him in the ditches, for want of rclidf.” To tiie Editors of the Whig. Gentlemen—There apjieared in a late No. of the Richmond Enquirer, a piece communicated to the Editors, signed “Toil.” That article was distinguish ed, even among the kindred effusions, which adorn tho columns of that fallen and degraded print, for its coarse and inolcgant abuse. This community is in tho habit of ascribing most of tho communica ted abuse which teems in the Enquirer, ouco the organ of Madison, Roane, liny <&. many othor emi nent men, now nlas! the vehicle of flatterers and sycophants, who pay their court through that me dium to Jackson, to the pen of tho Lt. Governor of Virginia. It tho article is particularly abusive, particularly destitute ot literary elegance, and is signed as such articles always nre, hy some virtu ous and illustrious name, as Crito, Tell, Cato or the like, the Lt. Governor is sure to get the credit. 'V illi this disposition, 'Fell was pretty generally as cribed to the pen of the I,t. Governor, but it is now reported, erroneously. A statement is in circula tion, that the author of that moral and patriotic ef fusion, in which Mr. Clay’s debauchery, depravity, gaming, and I know not what, bnd qualities besides, arc strenuously insisted upon, is no other than a late Co-Editor o( the Enquirer. Do you know, and will you inform the Richmond nnd Henrico com. munity, who, like Paul Pry, arc “curious to know” the interesting fact? SEVERAL. Remarks.—We have no moans of answering tho enquiry. We never read Tell until to-day, when from the conversation excited by the statement al luded to, wo were induced to hunt him tip, nnd read him. We took it for granted from what we had heard of the article, that P. V. Daniel, Esq the drier Crito, was the author. \ cry likely we did him in just icc—or perhaps hn may think, paid him too high a compliment. Very likely lie may bo tho author—very likely the quondam editor may be. That one or the other is, is likeliest of all. Our correspondent we presume, supposes the late Lieut. Governor to be now Lieut. Governor. He should inform himself better. Councillor Ro. bertson, is now Lieut. Governor. For the Whig. TO THE PUBLIC. An article in the Richmond Enquirer of the 21st of August, signed “Tell,” has attracted the alien, j lion of the public in an extraordinary degree. The author ofthat piece leaving all of his competitors m slander a sightless distance in the rear, and not content with aspersing tho public character of Mr. May, boldly charges him with acts (if true) calcula. ted to adect lnr standing cs a man and a gentleman: | w ith having led the life of a common black.leg.— lore is only one mini in the community from whom t'l,< 1 * ,l,;iss of stupidity & venom could have passed, •md the public were not slow in fixing upon that ni‘i\hum!. . I lio author of this begs pardon if the Known qualities of that person’s mind should have >:d him into an error; but lie is unwilling, for the ionor of human nature, to believo that there could >e two such in thu world. Assuming this position }*’ ,0.truo’ lie takes the liberty of asking tho pseudo * '* *'lr> * lay ever went to a faro-bank, lost 000, and then refused to pay it, pleading intox ication in justification of his nioanness, though it was apparent to every by.slander that he was more sober than usual? A certain person, who some times writes under the signature of a great Swiss patriot, has heard of u scene like this, and should therefore be cautious how lie inukcs charges against otiiers so well calculated to recall it to the recol lection of his readers. A CLAYITE. At a meeting of sundry Officers of the first Vir. ginia Regiment, held at Amelia Court-House, 22d Jyly. 183x2, Col. Jno. T. Bottom was called to the Chair, and Capt. A. B. Walthall was appointed Secretary—and on tnoliou of Eicut. Win. L.

And at another meeting held pursuant to ad. journinent, at Amelia Court-House, August 23d, 1832, the following preamble and resolutions were udopted, vir: This Meeting believing that tho present depress ion of militajy spirit, is attributable solely to the inefficient militia laws of the State, and also be lieving that a well organized and proper disciplin ed Militia is the only safeguard of our political in stitutions, that an army without discipline, is a mere mob in uniform, more dangerous to itself than an enemy, anil that standing armies in times of pence, have at all times proved destructive of liberty, we will use our best endeavours, in con junction with the Officers of the several Regiments, composing the fourth Brigade, to induce tho next Legislature, (by memorial) or otnerwise, so to amend the laws, as to make it honorable to bold a commission in, and to be enrolled among the mili tia ol this Common wealth. Resolved t/ici ejorc, *1 hat we highly approve of the contemplated meet ng of Delegates from the several Regiments of the 4th Brigade, at Amelia Court-House, on the 24th day of November next, in order to memorialize the Legislature, on the sub. ject of an amendment of the Militia I aws, and also to draft such a plan touecompany the said me morial as may seem best calculated to efiect tho same. jiauivru niso, i uni i_ oi. John r. Bottom, Col. Jacob Roberts, Maj. Alexander Allen, Capt. Geo. Moore, and Capt. John W . Bottom, he appoint ed Delegates to represent this Regiment in said Meeting. Resolved further, That Col. Joi.n T. Bottom, Lieut. Wm. L. Booker, and Capt. A. B. Walthall, ho appointed a Committee to correspond with such other corresponding Committees as have been, or may hereafter he appointed, bv the other Regi ments composing the 4th Brigade, on the subject of the contemplated meeting, and that they have power to change the time and place of holding the said Meeting, and it changed, that they give rea sonable notice thereof, to the Officers of the seve ral Regiments of the said Brigade. Resolved also. That the proceedings of this Meeting bo published :n the Richmond Enquirer and Constitutional Whig, and that the Secretary furnish a copy to the Editors of said papers, with a request that they will publish the same; and then, On motion, the Meeting adjourned sine die.

At a meeting of the Sheriffs in this plae.o on yes. terdav to compare tho polls for Governor and Lieu tenant Governor of this State, it was ascertained that Breathitt (the Jackson candidate for Governor) had 10,681 votes, and Buckner (tho Cloy candi date) had 39,421. Breathitt’s majority 1260. '1 hat Morehcad (the Clay candidate for Lieuten ant Governor) had 10,046 votes, and Taylor (the Jackson candidate) had 37,4.52. Morchcad’s ma jority, 2594. That Buckner’s and Morchcad’s aggregate vole was 79,467, and Breathitt and Taylor’s 78,133: m.i. king a clear majority in favor of the Clay candi dates of 1334. J I hut, in tho Senate, thoro were twenty-two friends of Mr. Clay and sixteen Jackson men, and in the House of Representatives sixty for Clay and forty for Jackson. A large majority of the Sheriffs present are also decidedly opposed to Juckson, Van Buron and Ken dall. At n meeting held by Ihom Innl evening, John B. Bamo, Es*|. of Bourbon county, was called to the ( hair, and Henry Gore, of Nelson county, ap pointed Secretary. On motion it was unanimously Resolved, 1st, That we will use all honorable means anrl our best exertions to promote the elec tion of Henry Clay as President, and John Sergeant as Vice President of t ho United States. 2nd. Resolved, That it is the deliberate opinion of this meeting that Henry (’lay and John Ser geant will obtain the electoral vote of Kentucky at the next Presidential election, 3d.

Resolved, That the proceedings of this meet ing he signed by the Chairman and Seciotary, and published in the several papers throughout flic Stale friendly to the election of Henry (.’lay and John Sergeant. JOHN B. RAINE, Chairman. Henry Gore, Secretary. Pennsylvania.—The most authentic information derived from this state, enables us to assure our rea dors that the whole opposition will act together in Pennsylvania, and that the Jackson electoral ticket will certainly be defeated. The Governor’s election in this state will bo held on the second Tuesday in October, and the election for Presidential Electors on an early day iri November. The Jackson Can didate for Governor is Wolf; the Anti-Masonic candidate is Ritner; there is no doubt entertained of the election of Ritner, and if fie succeeds, the opposition electoral tickets will succeed by a mush larger majority, and if Wolf should ho elected by n | small majority, the opposition electoral ticket will prevail, for there are very many opponent* of Jackson in Pennsylvania, who will nevertheless vote for Wolf; of tl ns description arc the recent I converts from the Jackson ranks, and the Tinmen ous friends of Mr. lugharu.—Advocate <J- Jour, Ohio.—Oor most judicious National Republican fricmlsin this state assure us that tiiero can be no doubt entertained, by any well informed man, of the success oft lie whole National Republican elec, toral ticket. 'I he National Repuhliaan strength is sufficient of itself to carry their ticket, hut this ticket which was made in the spirit of" conciliation will tindoubtly receive nearly the whole vote of the opposition.

CHOLERA REPORTS. Extract of a letter received in this City, dated “S.MITHVIKLU, Allg. 27. “ 1 hrcc eases of Cholera occurred in Sniithtield, last Sunday. The subjects wero two black men belonging to Mr. Todd, of this place. The first one, it is supposed, took the disease at Old Point, and the other took it from him. Both of them, on Monday, were convalescent. Dr. J. II.

President of the Board of Health: —I he Special Medical Council, having been requested by the Board of Health to express their opinion on the subject of inviting the return of ab sent citizens, have approached the subject with a deep sense of the responsibility which it involves. They are fully aware of tho extent to which tho great commercial intcresls of the city are suffer ing by the continued absence of many of tlioso whose occupations afford support not to themselves alone, but to largo numbers in the humbler walks of life. At the same time, ns modical men, they arc hound to regard the subject with reference to the paramount considerations of tho health and snfety of those who aro to he influenced hy its de cisions. I he number of cases of Malignant Cholera is now greatly diminished, notwithstanding the rapid increase at’ our population within the last week. Our long experience in the disease, while it has confirmed in every particular, the necessity of strict attention to diet and regimen, has given to us, and to the whole conununily, a sense of seeu rily under these precautions, which experience alone can inspire. Influenced hy these and other considerations of a like character, which they deem it unnecessary to detail, the Special Medical Council addressing themselves to the discreet portion of the coinuiu* nity, invite them to return to their business and their homes. While giving this advice, they beg to reiterate to the public authorities all their form er recommendations, and to individuals thoso of cleanliness, precaution in diet, and regimen, and early attention to premonitory symptoms, by a due regard to which, they and those who have duly fol lowed them ha Vo, hy the blessing of (Jod, gone through the season of pestilence unharmed.

ODE TO POLAND. Hoard ye yon murmur low and faint. Swoop o’or tin: spreading main. Like dying moan or funeral plaint? Tis Poland's clanking chain. Her heart is broke, her voice is huahed, Her fiery soul Porovcr crushed Beneath u tyrant’s rod; Her banner that lute streamed on high, Liko meteor o’er tho midnight sky. Is rent and soiled with blood. And where arc now those gallant few. Who late in martial pride, To Poland, fame and honor true, 'Phe northern horde defied? Nor this alone, but dared withstand 'Plie tyrant, though his savage hand Was numerous as the uncounted sand That lines the ocean’s shorn; And never yet the frozen north Sent bloodier, greedier hell-hounds forth, To deluge earth with gore. Aye! where nre they? Where yonder plain Displays its bosom green. Go ask tho listless drooping swain What those vast mounds may moan, Along the earth so thickly spread, I.ike such memorials of the dead As rustick hands might rear? lie answers with a tearful eye, “Lost Poland’s munlured heroes lie Enshrined in glory there." Ask why yon river* once so hold, Scarce moves towards the deep, Though thus its sullen stream of old Was never wont to sleep? It moves as though some task abhorred By fate the world’s despotic lord Upon its stream were laid; It' d are its waves with heroes’blood, Tho channel of its sluggish flood Is choked with Poland's dead. Ask why yon broad and fertile field Sends thus is products forth. With vigor none have e’er beheld, In regions of the north; Its rapid growth and verdure wild, Sccin as though nature here had smiled Like mother on a favorite child; ’Twas never thus before? The humblest sherplierd, standing by, The simplest swain can tell you why:— Yon plain that shoots its growth so high, Is rich with Poland’s gore. Why is yon unfrequented path, So riiinouH and hlaek. As though the Fire-King in his wrath Had passed along its track? As though lho lightning’s fiery wing Had blasted every living thing That tlourished in its way; And smouldering walls, and blnckcncd spiro, Sad relics of its deadly ire, Were left to grim decay. Has hell poured forth her demon race, To war against mankind? And is yon vast deserted spaco A track they left behind? No—man. frail man, more cruel far. Has caused the waste thou see’st thcro, So grim and desolate— The arch-fiend’s self would blush to seo, The havoc and the misery, * His subjects here create. Ah ! happy they who sank beneath Yon walls in rirfn piled; And happier stul who met with death Upon the ensanguined field; Whose glorious fate it was to die, While shouts of joy and victory, Still rang from Polish tongues; With hopes still high, the time might be, Their sons when they were gone, should see An end to Poland’s wrongs. Hark! to yon agonizing shrieks ; Oh! how they pierce the soul— 'Tis there the insensate tyrant wroaks His vengeance on the Pole; » With maddening grief, and gestures wild, I.o where-yon mother clasps her child, In vain attempt to save. The little wretch must join yon band, That seek Siberia’s frozen land. Predestined for a slave. And vainly may the mother try. The tyrant to uppense. Gods ! can a world stand hcedlcos by, And witness scenes liko these ? Britannia, thou who fam would’st be,r Earth’s queen, and mistress of the sea,, Why docs thy lion sleep? A tyrant’s doom could once awake That roar which made the nations quake, Yet not one ship for Poland’s sake, Is launched into the deep. And thou too France, did glory lose, Its every charm for thee, With him whoso hallowed hones repose. Far far beyond the sea? Tho empty boast, the valiant tlirent, Gate made, hut not accomplished yet; The tri-color still furled, The arms not used, though proudly borne, The Russian laughs the whole to scorn. Thou jest of all the world. Ah ! loudly did thy threats resound, When danger was afar, But never yet did beaten hound, Crouch lower when ’twas near: Go stack tho arms thou darst not use, ’Twero pity gallant sires should lose At onee their dear bought fame. By moans of sons who will not be, Purely through want of spirit, free, And yet will bear their name. Poes pitying heaven disdain io weep. For wretched Poland’s woes? Great God ! and will thy vengeance sleep, O’er crimes so dark as tliose? It slmnbcretb, hut it cannot sleep: Though late’tis certain, fierce and deep, Along tho hoavens its flood shall sweep And deluge earth with blood. Irfit tyrants rest, secure, nor think. How soon their bloody throne* may sink. Beneath the crimson flood. ii. r. r. * 1 he Natewka, on w hich Ostrolsnka 13 sjluatrd.^ i 'A lKbIMA.—At a superior court of chancery ™ holdcn at tins capiloJ, in tlie city of Rich inond, on Wednesday, tho 7th day of July, 1890, Robert 11.
