NEW YORE ELECTION.
OF fIIE PEOPLE OVER THE COMBINED
FACTIONS OF FEDERALISM.
Whiggcry is most emphatically dead in the Empire
State--The -Coon is killed most certainly; and the
"Virgin heifer" candidate has no chance among the
Tamest hearted democracy of New York.
WESTERN 'NM YORE, the birth-place of Antircu
sonry, where. in the palmy days of that humbug, the
federalists could get what maiorities they pleased. the
Democrats have done gloriously. Gtar.d StastcrCLA r
will not do there.
N [AGAR& county. the Democrats has for thefirst
t;rric in 15years, carried their ticket. Majority about
100, and more on some of the officers.
Mosstos county luta elected a democratic Sheriff
surd Clerk, and possibly the whole democraiic ticket.
CATARAUCILIS county has also chosen democratic
county officers, and p - robably the balance of the ticket.
In ORLEAN s county tha whole democratic ticket elec

ees Staten Island, has elected a Dentecrntic Assembly
man, William Nickles, by ornajority of 164. The ma
jority in the county for David It. Floyd Jones, the de

The Goshen Orange County Whig says: "The Loco
majority in the county will probably be little over no
--on the Clerk about 300—Ikbert L Hathaway, the
whig candidate, having outrun his ticket.
The Plebeian of the 9th says: "As fur asheard from
we have elected 41 members of Assembly, and tat'
v.iiigs 10. The whigs will nut probably have in the
Assembly more than 30, member; out of the 123.
What says Massachusetts to this! Will the news be

During the absence of the Committee the meeting
was ably and eloquently addressed by .A. Bracken

The Committee reported, through their Chairman,
the following Address rand Resolutions:
Resolved, That the Commanwealth of Pennsylva
nia. since the first formation of parties in this country
h sit tamed with naftevi sting firmness the principles
of the Constitution as understood and explained by that
Democracy of which Mr. deffer , on and the eminent
St lit,3nle a of the Virginia School were the expounders.
That in all times of trial, and in all difficulties and dan
gore, the State of Penneylvania has formed the grand
rallying point atotind which the Democracy of the
Union have gathered.
That Pennsylvania has in every contest looked to the
greatcause of thecountry, and alwar; etood ready to sa
crifice her own wishes, nud set aside her own favolites
when by so doing she couldpromote the harmony and
union of the Demoemtic party.
That acrisis has now arisen in which any sacrificeby
the State of Penneylvunia, of her own eminent States
man, so far from promoting the harmony and union of
the democracy, would, in a great measure, be attended
with a contrary tendency, and would create imminent
risk of the total defeat of the party.
That the Democratic party in Pennsylvania will
therefore insist upon having their rights respected, and
will vehemently urge the n omination M the Hon. James
Buchanan, a distinguished eon of Pennsylvania, and
one of the most eminent statesmen of the

That we recommend to cur fellow citizens that the
delegates sent by us to the National Canvention be in
structed tn nominate and ineist upon the nomination, on
the part of this S•ate. of James-Buchanan alone, and
that Pennsylvania has no senora choice.
That however disappointed we may be in the result,

SPIRIT OP 111 E. Wit LC PKEis.—..Sonte da” since the
Boston Post publishedthe following paragraph:
"The Frankfort C'ommonwealthesaerts that Col. R.
' :‘l. Johnson 'never had the smallest share of military
I talent.' If this he true, most worthy patriots! what
becomes of the Colonel's endorsement of the courage
and conduct ttf Gen. Harrison. which the Whigs made
such good use of during the ca mpaign of 1840."
1 We don't know that we should precisely concur with ,
our Frankfort friend, in denying to the Cu!. the peas
' session of the "smallest share of militaryttalent" — but
we never had the least belief in the story of his having
killed Tecumseh. We recollect that a Western gentle
man, a friend of oars, who was perfectly comeromt
with the events of that time in the west, told us that
there was not a particle of evidenoe to show that Col
! J ohnsou killed Teruntseh—and that if he did killhint,
he killed a muck better mag shot ititaself. — Doston
Language like the above, remarks the Albany Ar
gus, would indicate as mach stupidity as malignity. if it
I were not addressed to men who, in heart, respond to
mid s ympathise with it. The spirit of the Hair:lota
Convention Festtrahim has indeed descended, a grow
ing legacy. to the hands of the IVhig party of Musse
-1 chusetts..when its leading press thus attempts to ele
vate the character of a savage enemy of the people of
the west over their gallantdefonder—the h
