KENTUCKv.
If there bo any who havo construed the Election
of Col. 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.

1832, the following preamble and resolutions were

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.

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

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. Purdic, of
Smitlifiold, was called on Saturday lust, to visit a
negro girl about G miles below town, and on his
return home he reported her case to be a most vio
lent attack of the cholera. And on the Sunday
following, the Doctor was taken with the samo di
sease, ond some doubts are entertained us to his
recovery. No now ease had occurred since Sun
day.”

The Hoard of Health have tho satisfaction to an

has in a groat measure passed hy, and that in their

fell victims to the disease wore residents of crowd

been impaired, or who had from excessive fatigue
or gross imprudence in diet, subjected themselves
to disease.

• lie propriety of avoiding the causes of disease, tho
necessity of being careful iu diet, and of exposuro
to the rays ot the sun and tho night air; with such

NEW YORK BOARD OF HEALTH, Aug. 2f>.
The following communication was received from
the Special Medical Council, and directed to be
published. J. MORTON, Scc’ry.
New York, Aug. 28, 1832.
To Walter Bowse, Esq.
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

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.
