Correspondence of the J\ationul Intelligence!.
Pini.ADCi.riiu, Sept. 18, 1844.
Dear Sir: I wrote you a week or two ago expres
sing some doubts as to the election of Gen. Markle as
Governor of this Suite by the Whigs, though 1 did not
doubt but the vole of the State would he given lo Mr
Clay, Sim ® then 8 new aspect has been given lo the
conical. General Markle has heroine much bettor
known to the people in llm eastern section ol the Stale,
and the eonfidenec of tho Wings in electing him has
greatly increased. You know I am not apt to he sun
guine, hut I cannot help coming t • the conclusion that
.Markle will he elected. Ho is certainly gaining rapid
ly, and Shunk, who is looked Ujion ns one who hns been
cradled m the corruption which every body knows fill®
the atmosphere of Harrisburg, is lulling behind ns lust.
I cannot doubt, from s'l I can learn, and I have (he best
source* of inlormaiion, that Markin will leave tlm cily
and county ol Philadelphia w nii a majority varying
from i£,rdltl to 3,1 HHI, instead ol the same majority u»
gainst him, as other \\ lug candidates for tlm office
have. This will make a vast difference, and where
they are lo moke up this deficit I cannot He**. Again,
tho Whig majority will be increased very much in a
number of the largo Whig conn tier, ami tho Lm*of*co
majority decreased in pome of their former strong holds.
I know the l.oeofucos brag of carrying the. State by 15,*
IKK); they mighl, with just as mueli propriety, claim Vf>,
000 or 50,00(1. Depend upon it, their bragging is Inn
an evidence of aUrut. Jim Stale ol Pennsylvania hns
gone from them —it is o 'Tariff Slate, and their gr »**
fraud® and attempts to humbug the people in regard to
Mr. Polk’s position on the protective policy have been
exposed, nod are nrodncmg just such an effect as mighl
have been expected. They will find, ufier awhile, I
hope, that honesty fa tlm best policy even in politics, ami
that tlm people, cannot long he kept in llm dark by be
ing hood winked. Gen. Markle’® popularity is irrcsiw
tilde at the west,and is becoming so hero. This, to*
cello r with the re aeiion which is taking place, tlm ro
cull of their fraud ami deception "il i Jin lar.if subject, is
producing changes every day - swelling tlm luuks of the ,
Whigs nt the expense of those of llm l,oeos. Have no i
bar therefore of Pennsylvania. Site is alow, but, I
think, sure. AH that was necessary lo secure Markle’* (
election, was confidence in Ids success, that is now dai- ;
ly increasing, and will secure the result \v« nil si aux
lotisly desire. As to the vote of tho Slate being given 1
today, there is not tlm leant shadow of doubt. Mnugre
all t o defamatory, virulent and malicious attacks i
upon him, lie is gaining friends hourly. Our opponents
may scream and hum as loud and ns often an they
please, they cannot discourage iho Whig®, nor prevent
their ow n men front leavii g their ranks.
Mr. C/uy's Letters to /Jlair.
A vflty great nuiae has been made by Pulkery a 1»«>nt
these letters. The Locos, having heard that in conse ;
quonce of sornn persona! allusions to particular individ
uals, Mr. Clay lied insuperable objections tu their pub
lication, have, with their wonted regard fur truth and ,
fair dealing, been laboring tu persuade the public that
they contained evidence of the exploded calumny of bai
gain and corruption—a calumny, which we take it upon
ourselves to say, no gentleman credits or affects to credit,
v\ hatever desperate party hacks may do. 'Phese foul
detractors of the most illustrious of our living statesmen,
supposed they had the game in then own hands, and
they might, without fear of detection and exposure, give
any representation they chose of the contents of the let
lers—so long as Mr. day refused to publish them.
The candid portion of the public has long been sat
isfied that those letters contained nothing to justify the
imputatjuiiBupun .Mr. Clay,or to detract in the slight
tbi degree from his'lionor as a public or a private man —
because gentlemen, who have road the letters, have so
certified to the public. But there was another, and quite
as satisfactory a reason lor supposing the mnucency of
