tionof both Huttie. Our rimdeii) will uUo be
ptoad to notice by the election of Speaker and
Clerk i.f the Ilouac of Representative!1, that our
political ull'airs lime, at last nseuinod a petition
much less cmbarraftiiig to the public interest nnd
to the progress of bueines.'. They will nlto learn
that ihe majority of t'tic predominant pirty i suITj
ciently largo in both branches of the Legislature
to enable lliem tu carry ull practical political moa
eures without being embarrassed by cloto votes,
tho House having about 50 and the Senate about
10 major!'.), adverse to the Vjn Huren intereeli).
It will furthermore be observed, on adverting to
the votes for Governor, that the large mnjonly with
which Gov. Jhmmsum obtained Ins election (being
10H0 votes) that the Stito is in no very great dan
ger of being miiugglti' over to Hie Dutch, this ) ear.
Tho impatient Van Huron office hunters must tlicrc-
foro wait another year before they cm be accom
modated ! In relation to the Presidential electoral
cnninsa, no msn of ordinary eagr.city can suppose,
as the Steto now Etninl.i, that any other than the
Whig Ticket can be elected. The mijorily will
probibly be much larger than Gov. Jennifon had.
Wo have reason to Mippose Iroin the political
poMlion in wlucii the Legislature is situated this
ynnr that the hut-moan of the mission il! b on.
patched with precision ; and it is to ho hoped with
