The contest between the whip and the
blue noses, is likely to he the warmest fac-
Lion fight ever %% itnessed in our cfyinty, or
perhaps in the State. The whigs are in
tip-top condition, as full of spirit as a well
trained thoroughbred, and almost as confi

attention of bungling grocrns. The stakes
are large and the conte.t will be propor
tionably desprt ale.
But independent of the possession of the
offices, thi re are other questions involved
that will impel each faction to strain every
nerve for victory. It is a grand trial of
strengqi between the vi hics and blue no
ses; which ever party is left behind at the
October election, will have to yield, and
ever after follow the lead of the success-•
ful faction. The strength of the two pit.-
ties we believe to be pretty evenly
ded, and if the contest were to come on
now, the race would be one of head and
shoulder. But unfortunately for the blue
Doses, it is some four months until the
election takes place, and the experience of
every day shows that their sun is setting,
and that the longer the contest is put off,
the more unable will they be to make a
vigorous struggle. They are not led on
by the prudent, cautious, clearsighted lead
ers of former campaigns; they have not the
skill or nerve to bring the "whippable ar
ticles" to proper subjection, and their only
hopes are,that by re-dressing their old raw
head and bloa3y bones' stories,and by gross
misrepresentation of their opponents, they
will be able to keep a sufficient number of
their dupes in ti e harness to drag them
over the course in October. On the other
hand, the whigs ere fresh and vigorous; the
desperatiin created by the harsh treatment
they received from their antimasimie allies
in former years, and which forced them to
rebel against their tyrants, is fast changing
to a feeling of self reliance, and their con•
fidence and hopes ;lie increasing in propor
tion as the prospects of their opponents
become more gloomy and desperate. In
Oleic case the.i Id adage that "power is al
ways stealing from the many to the few,"
is being:realized; and there are now but few
