The following are the official returns of this Sen atorial district. Counties. John Morrison. Adolphus Patterson. Huntingdon, 3913 2819 Bedford, 3024 2888 6997 5507 5507 Morrison'. moj: 1430 Sheriff Armitage 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. "CONGRESSIONAL. Counties. Henderson. Blanchard. Huntingdon, 500 Inaj. Centre, 1200 maj. Milllin, 300 " Juniata, 250 " Henderson's majority, 1250. The Centre county exponent of Hartford Conventionism may get 500 majority in Old Huntingdon, but we think no more, and as to Centre county, what say you, brother Shugert, how much? Shall we put down for you 1500, 1200, certainly not less. Mifflin 300, Juniata, 250, in all 1750, leaving 1250 majority for Captain Henderson. He ought to beat his yan 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 QUESTION.-If a fellow can come within 1600 of the result of one Congressional district, how near can lie come to that of 223, composing the'United States? AM/WM - 356,800 II I 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. Beep it before the People, That on the passage of the bill, March 13, 1828, for the relief of surviving officer. of the revolution ary war, Mr. Polk voted IN THE NEGATIVE. Cong.

The evidence we have of the above facts, so un pleasant to Locofoco editors and orators, is contain ed in the Journals of the Lower House of Congress, above referred to. They may be seen in this bo 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 a feet." Globe aua 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 wards us. 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 principles." 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 than 5000 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. The Cincinnati Atlas publishes the following re 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 years afterwards. 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. The following elute of the kind is still more re markable. In 1830, Dan Stone, of thin city, was a candi date for the State Legislature. Walking up Main 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 vote on the question of confirming the appointment of Martin Van Duren as Minister Plenipotentiary to Great Britian, enabled the Vice President to give the casting vote against it, and recalled Mr. Van Duren home. That recall ii.ade Mr. Van Buren first Vice President. and then President • and determined the general policy of the country for four years.
