Morrison'. moj: 1430
And his friends have the proud satisfaction of know
ing that he passed, unharmed, through a contest
that was characterised by the bitterest opposition of
the most unprincipled party that ever disgraced any
country. He passed through the fiery ordeal with
honor, crowned with victory. His political and
personal enemies carried on the meat con ardly and
skulking warfare against him, and resorted to the
most low, base, and contemptible Lams that malig
nant slanderers, despicable cowards, and unblushing
hypocrites could invent and propagate. Not a
stone was left unturned to defeat him; and yet he
leads his competitor nearly five hundred votes.
If some of the Whigs of the country, who had
been induced to vote against him, could have heard
the savage, demoniac yells and shouts of victory
which burst from the throat of Locofocoism in this
borough when the votes of this district and of Walker
were announced, they would perhaps have regretted
that they contributed by their ballots to bring about
that jubilation. They sung through our streets,
" That Coon, that Coon of twenty five,
That coots we'll skin alive,"
or something like tide, with the most sewage feroci
ty, disturbing the slumbers of the peaceable and
well disposed portion of the community. But, . that
coon of twenty five" they now find to have a whole
hide on him; and wo advise his Locofoco and
' Mongrel" calumniators to "stand off." That
. coon" will bite.
What's the Matter.
It ie now more than two weeks since the election,
and the returns must all have been in Harrisburg
long ago; but as yet the Locofoco organs—official
and "ucond fiddles"—have not published the full
returns! "Hurrah fora majority of from 5,000 to
8,000 !" is the cry of all the Locofoco papers and
braggadocios;—but where are the official returns
Why are they withheld on the eve of an important
Presidential election/ Are their effect upon that
contest dreaded/ Are the Locofocoa scared? And
would they spoil the cry of " 5 to 8 thousand majoi
ity 1" Who can fors any other conclusion /
The Harrisburg Telegraph gives the official re
turns of ail the counties except Bradford, Elk,
Greene, Indiana, deffers.n, McKean, Pike, Potter,
Tioga, Venange, Warren, Wayne and Wyoming;
and adds the reported majorities of the 13 counties
above named, and from its statement, Shunk's major
ity over Markle appears to be only 3,865!
Give ut more light—the people are anxious to
know if Mr. bunk is or is not a minority Gover
nor. M ow many cotes were east for Mr. Lemoyne?
Another Great " Ealhilashun."
Our neighbor of the veritable Globe excepts to
the sta•ement of the probable result of the Presiden
tial election which appeared in our paper week be
fore Inst. And who cares if he does He straight
way fell to work, and furnished the world with a
statement which, he say e, "will be recognized as
having some claims to candor and fairness." He
sets down 15 States as "certain for Polk and Da
llas," with 173 electors; gives Clay 5 States, with
45 electors; and sets down Connecticut, New Jer
sey, Delaware, Maryland, Ohio and Georgia as
doubtful. Unfortunately for our neighbor, this
half dozen of doubtful states have recently held
elections, and all of them have gone for the Whigs,
some of them by much greater majorities than
the Lecofocos claim in Pennsylvania, and the Globe
places Pennsylvania among the States "certain for
Polk and Dallas." In 3of the States "certain for
Polk and Dallas," to wit, Virginia, Louisiana and
Indiana, with 35 electors, elections have been held
during the present year, and they too, have gone
for the Whigs. Among the "certain for Polk and
Dallas," along with Pennsylvania we find New
York and Tennessee. The latter two are almost as
certain for Clay as any State in the Union, and
Pennsylvania can scarcely any longer be considered
doubtful. Before the late election, some of the
knowing Locofocos conceded that if Shunk's major
ity was under 10,000 the State would go for Clay.
The above "kalkilashun" is equalled by only
one other that was ever given to the world, and
that we insert below. It appeared in the Globe on
the 25th of September last—also original.

Shugert, how much? Shall we put down for you

Juniata, 250, in all 1750, leaving 1250 majority

bee opponent 2000, and by hard work can."
Look at one of these "kalkilashuna" and then at
the other, and you will know how much reliance to
place in either.
As the Globe clique consider themselves great at
figures, we give them this

Cipher it out, boyo.
The impaired memory of the Locos.
It is really amusing to see the Locofoco editors
„ dishing up" the returns of late elections for their
readers. They skip over a period of four years as
though it were but a span. Poor fellows, we pity
them. At the Presidential election in 1840 they
got so completely 0 licked" that their nerves wero
so severely affected that they lost their memory for
four long years. They are now just becoming con
scious of what is transpiring around them. The
ever memorable "licking" we gave them in 1840
made so indellible an impression upon their minds
as they are not likely to forget until after the worse
drubbing that awaits them at the Presidential elec
tion in 1844. When returns reach them, the first
thing they do is to compare them with the Harri
son and Van Buren vote of '4O, and if they are not
as badly heat now as they were then; they shout
victory!—if the Whig majority is not so over
whelmingly great as it was four years ago, " the
Locofocos consider the result as highly auspicious,"
and as "showing the downward tendency of the
Whig party." Even the general elections of 1840
are forgotten by the Locofocos; and in this State
they do not even recollect the Gubernatorial
election of 1841. when they had a majority of 23,000;
but, happily, they can recollect 1840, when they
were beaten; and because " Old Skunk" has a
meager plurality, when they boasted he would get
20,000 majority, they shout " glorious victory!"
Go it now, Locos, for after the election you'll feel
sick and sore.

The evidence we have of the above facts, so un

rough. They belonged to the late Robert Allison,
Esq. Let all who have doubts, examine the re
cords and see for themselves. We make no assertions
without backing them up with proof.
Q:" John Dougherty, in endeavoring to make out
that Polk will carry Ohio, says— , it is said Mr.
Todd, the Democratic candidate for Governor, is a
DEIST!" So it seem. the plow and moral Lo
cofocos of Ohio, who oppose Mr. Clay for his " irre.
ligion" and "immorality," took up a Deist as the
leader of their hosts! Their hypocrisy "sticks out
On the 2nd inst. the " Huntik;doi. w
ged us with having published •• an article purpor
ting to be from Roorbach's travels in the United
States, stating that Co! Polk sold slaves, burnt
them with his brand, &c." It was roundly asser
ted that we had given wings to the story (then) two
weeks since, and that although the contradiction
was almost as early as its publication, we withheld
the contradiction from the public.
This charge came at such a time and in such a
shape that it left no room to suspect mistake or in
advertence on the part of the Globe; and, in view
of this, Wb stated on the 12th that we never pub
lished the article referred to, nor any thing like it;
and as we were fully convinced that the charge was
made against us wilfully, maliciously and for poli
tical effect, we denounced it as a falsehood and its
publisher as an infamous liar and an unmitigated
scoundrel—terms which, although harsh and un
pleasant, wore richly merited by his conduct to
In our paper of the 12th we also published an
exposition of the "Roorbach Imposition," taken
from the Ithaca Chronicle extra, in which the " For
gery" was charged upon " WILLIAM LIMP, Esq.
of that village, a LOCOFOCO OFFICE OL
DER, the candidate of that party for justice of the
peace, to which office he was elected, and which he
now holds; and also examiner in chancery, appoin
ted by a Locoloco Senate, on the recommendation
of Governor Bouck."
Well, we arena to have "raised the dander" of
the Globe clique; and brought about two columns
of its wrath upon us. The Globe of last week
does not plead mistake, nor does it tell its readers
that we did not publish the Roorbach Imposition ;
but it makes a vain, silly, and ridiculous effort to
pull us down to its own degraded level, by attempt
ing to prove that said imposition or forgery was not
perpetrated try a Locofoco, as we stated on the au
thority of the Ithaca Chronicle, the paper ha which
both the " forgery" and its denial first appeared.—
Our veracious neighbor says he will not brand us
es an infamous liar and an unmitigated scoundrel"
—(how kind!) but that two affidavits, one from
" George G. Freer" and the otherfrom "E. Labar,"
would justify him in doing so.
Mr. Freer swears that the said William Linn
voted the Harrison electoral ticket in 1840, and
within 30 days last he has said in the hearing
of the deponent that he hoped Cloy would be elec
ted. E. Leber swears that since the nomination of
Clay "deponent has had frequent conversation with
William Linn on political topics, and that Linn has
always argued in favor of Henry Clay and Whig
It is remarkable that neither of these deponents
deny that William Linn is a Locofoco office holder,
elected justice of the peace by that party, and ap
pointed examiner in chancery on the recommend,.
twn of the present Locofoco Governor of New
York, by and with the adviceand consent of the
Locofoco Senate. Upon these facts the assertion
is founded, and they ate not denied. As to Prete,
he proves too much I How can he sweet: that
Linn voted the Harrison electoral ticket ashen the
law requires the tickets to be folded so that the
names of the candidates cannot be seen. But sup
pose it to be true, and what Locofoco paper has not
boasted of the changes since 1840. Perhaps Linn
is among them. Labor swears to conversations end
assertions. An unprincipled character, such as
Linn must be, would readily hold political cancer
' sations and make such assertions—without a spark
of sincerity—for the very purpose of getting some
other genuine Locofoco affidavit maker to swear to
them. It is e very shallow attempt at backing out
, Such is the Globe's " plain tale" to " fasten false
hood on the Journal." Try it again, Lewis, but
keep in good humor—don't get mad when the truth
is told about you.
HOW THEY BEAT THEMSELVES.
The Harrisburg Union, if we remember rightly,
predicted a very short time before the State election,
that Shunk'a ma;ority would be 25,000. It is less
It now predicts that Polk and Dallas will carry
the State by 15,000. Allow 20,000 for error, as in
its former estimate, and the State is ours by 5000.
Well, we will be satisfied with that if we cannot
get more.—U. S. Gazette.
IMPORTANCE OF A SINGLE VOTE.

markable instances of the importance of a single
One vote in the city of New York returned a
republican member to the Assembly, which made
a majority in the Legislature of that State for Thom
as Jefferson, and gave him the vote of New York,
without which he could riot have been elected.—
The whole policy of the United States during the
Jefferson and Madison administration, a period of
16 years, hung on that one vote.
One vote elected Marcus Morton Governor of
Massachusetts, in an aggregate popular vote of
nearly one hundred thousand.
Onevote elected William Allen in the Chilteothe
district to Congress, in 1834, and one vote subse
quently made him United States Senator for six
One vote elected Mr. White to Congress from
Vermont, in 1822, and a member was also chosen
in 1824 by a single vote, in a canvass where about
6000 were polled.

In 1830, Dan Stone, of thin city, was a candi

street on the morning of the election, lie overtook
an acquaintance going to the polls, who intended
to vote the opposite ticket. Stone solicited his vote.
"• We are old friends," said he, "and I know you
will show a friend that mark of kindness." Party
spirit was then comparative' , quiet. The voter re
plied, " Well, Dan, you're a pretty clever fellow, I
don't care if I do." That vote elected Stone, and gave
a majority of one in the Legislature, which made
Thomas Ewing United States Senator. Mr. Ewing's
