It is vcry diflicult to lash the Locofoco cdi

ofdeception to which thcy resortto prevent
their followers from sinkiug into absolutcdis
pondency which would be ihe result of a cor
rect eslimateof their chances of success, in
thePresidcmialcontest. The ncarly certaln
Statcs lor the Whigs theyset down doubt

themsclves, aud ofthose Statcs where they
riave but an cqual cbance thcy arc absolutely

nothing conccded cvcn io the face of the
J most iudispatable evidcnce of success to
; their opponenls where ashadow of hopcrc-
raains for tlietn.
They have recently invented a new meth0d
ofdeception, which consists iu rcprcscnting
the Whigs in uttcrdcspondenccin rehtiou to
States where they entertaiu in reality the
most Iivc,y hoPcs ofagwceping victory.
This is Apir game iu relation to thStatcs of
Pennsylrania, Virginia and New Ycrk.

Clay.
Every hour confirms our most dccidcd be
licf that this will bc the glorious rcsult, at
Ieast asto Virginia and New York. In our
humble opiu.on thcse States are as safefor
Ilcnry Clay as mauy ofthe Statcs which
havealready sbown their preferenccs for him
in their preliminary elections. Says tho re
liable Richmond Whig, "Virginia is for
Clay? Wewill not gire you Loco pronf!

Iciving with the most sagacions Whigs inthe
country who have the bcst odportuu'ities o
forminga correct judgcment, we inake our-
selves perfectly casy that Clay will succeed
at all events, and probably hy thc votes of

700 WHIG GAIN IN 3 WEEKS.
The Locos have foundcd a feeble claim to
the Elcctorial vote of Maryland upon the
nmall Wbig majority for P.ratt. But the is
sue ofthe mayorality election in Baltimore is
a wct blanket to all their hopes. This oc
currcd on Monday, Iast week, and rcsulted in
the success of thc Loco caudidate, by a fall
ing of! ofthe Loco majority at the Statc elec
tion of scveu hundred and twcnty-two votes.
At the Statc clcctiou thc Locos carrried, the
City by 1,222 majority. Now they carry it
by only 498. The result of this election cs"
tablishes the charge upon the Locos of illcga1
and fraudulent votes beyond controvcrsy.
