The political chnngrs exhibited in the
results of she elections which have been
held during the present year, are so nu
merous and decisive as to indicate beyond
all question th d a complete and general
revolution in public opinion has taken
place. It is in vain that the r.dministra

party to local or incidental causes : they
are the evident results of a spontaneous
movement of the great body of Use people.

The Washington Union in making art
estimate of parties, before the recent elec
tion, conceded to t'ie Whigs 106 members
of the House,, to 121 locofcccs. In this
estimate New York was set down as 17
Whigs to 17 Locos, New Jersey as 3
Whigs to 2 Locos, and Ohio as 11 t 10.
Correcting these error- bv adding six to
