_The reported majorities are in

.if. the official vote

The whole vote - polled in Berke- was

clare that , the Van Buren majority in Berks

cannot possibly exceed_2ooo. We have
therefore estimated it as above.
By the above table, it will be perceived
that the Whig majority, though small, is
' decided.. When it is recollected that in

r • ir hturaliZation
• • The alleged frauds committed by certain
individuals as yet unknown, in relation to
obtaining - Naturalization papers, continue
to excite much attention. We have already
statedlihat these frauds ctinsist'in a large
number of person's haViUg obtained certi
ficates of Naturalization on fraudulent Dec
laration papers. It is known that by the
laws of the Union and of Pennsylvania,
foreigners by birth must, in order to become
'entitled to vote, have resided in the
United States for , five years, and have
declared ,thiii. — lnt — entions formally and
under • oath or affirmation, to become
citizens of the United States, at least two
years prior to the time which they seek
to-übtain- their final 'or naturalization-
pers. Thus, declaration papers; dated two
years- bad! : are in_all_cases indispensable,
and thelfaud alleged, consists in the for
gery of a large number of these papers.=
It . has been usual for many' years, in- the
offices connected with our county courts 3
-to-have-large books or_recordicicantaining
frp'm 500 to 1000 'printed certificates of
declaration: with planes for the names, the
dates of birth s the time of arrival in "the
United Stites,' the country of nativity, ke.
in blank. 'The oath affirmation has been
taken - bv - the - officetof the coutti-andisigned
in the gook:above described, by the 'person
declaring his intent:On to become a citizen.
A, Certificate is then,given tolls deolamit
—but, should lie loSe such ceriificitei htl
can always - obtain-a duplicate, tiiireference
to the'book abOve alluded tii
• • The allegation is,. that: upwatds,.of 69'
sheets of declarations have been fraudulent.;
ly introduced into one Declaration Book
that Naturalization papers have been fraud; • ,
ulently. obtained on such declarations,
that individuals have voted -On such false
•- • ,
papers ! . • khe Clerk of the Court inwhich •
the false papers have been discovered, M. •
Eneu, Jr. has retained counsel, and is mit.
deavoring to' discover the authors of this- iii
famous fraud. The Amerieild Sentinel ,
'states that the book containing declarations
was freely loaned to both political corn=
mittees, and tlius; the •gentleirien compris=
ing those committees, will also feel bound
to exert* themselves to the utmost to ferret
out the true Sourcee of this iniquity.
be observed that in additiOn to the Ora(
frainlOhose who voted on such "Niers
committed perjury, as everyone naturaliv
'ed-under-such -citonmstances f elnust hav e= -
taken oath that lie had declared his inten '
_tions._t_tio___years before, v.vhile a citizen must •
also under oath; have vouched foillie resl4 .
donee of the others or five years. in the U.
States. It is clear, ''therefore, that there
has been gross fraud . and wilful perjury...
somewhere, and on a wholesale scale: .
Properly followed - up, the real offenders ~
will no doubt be detected—for the records. • •
of the office will not only show the names
of those who are naturalized, but the names

of this kind are tolerated, the right of suf
