Voik Kiening Sinrof Saturday, oi.oiimus unsuLT nuni.nv cixcrnn Wo underslpiid, from n gentleman who left Raleigh on M outlay evening, and who arrived in advance of the mail, that on Monday evjning.retnrns had been received from "7 counties in addition to those al ready received, which gave Dudley, tho Whig candidate for Governor, n majority nf nearly Ihrcc Ihousiml voles. The coun ties yet to be heard from will increase tho majority, 'i'ho Van Huron party had given up all hope ofclcctiug Spiight.bitt claimed a majority in Iho House of Commons, whilst the Whigs felt confident of success there also. Two stages filled with whiirs came into Grcenbnrnugh on Tuesday, hiv ing Hags lying in honor ol the victory, Wo believe all these particulars can be re lied upon. It will not bo forgotten that in 1 1i32 llicrc were polled for Gen, Jackson in that Slate, 2-1,072 votes, and lor the opposition, only 1,503, giving Iho former n majority of CO,. 290 votes ! Now, when Mr Van Boron corncs into the field, the majority is revers ed, the Whig cause is 'triumphant, and the Kinderhonk jockey is distanced. Tho Richmond Inquirer admits that the Whigs have carried tho Legislature and by pu'ting this and that together, we infer that they have carried all. 7'ioo days Liter We la-t evening saw and conversed with a gentleman who left Halifax, N.

All hail, Nurth Carolina '. Phil. Lxq. A t.AiiAM v. The Mobile Mercantile Ad. vertiscr of tho O h inst. says, in regard to the iatc election, of which it contains some further items: "Wc hope nnd believe that Van Rurenism has now received its quietus in Alabama. It is a plant not congenial nt nil to the soil. In this county, it his been torn up root and branch. Colonel liatcs received three nnd General Everett two vitesio Mr Raven's one. Si much for Van Ilureni-m in Mobile city and county." 'I'ho New York Journal of Commerce, a Van Huron pap?r, udinits that the returns from Alabama, "as f u as received, nro f;i vorable to the Whig parly." li'MAN.t. As fur as heard from, there are elected 27 Harrison Representative?, and 5 Van Iiurcn 7 Harrison Senators and 1 Van Huron. Kkntuckv.

In St. Louis county nlotio he received n majority of 750 voles over Mr Hoggs, the Van Iiurcn can didate. The utter djspair of tho Van Hurenites, by the appalling intelligence from this slate, may he judged of by tho following extract ofa letter Irom thence, dated St. Louis, Aug. .ith, io tho 1'ieschi of the Globe : '"The way Ashley runs it 'beats tho Jews.' There is no accounting for il." Another remark of this letter wriier, who is a con genial spirit with lllnir, says. Tho pat rouugu ofthu General Government has not been ucJ to biistain thu republican parly as far ns wo have u right to expect, no: so far as the opposition give credit for." Q,ui:uu consolation. -An Alabama Van Huron newspaper consoles itself for defeat in tho following ingenious manner : "We nro by nn means dispirited. Our opponents wore beaten in 1 13 t nnd lOJ'i rurthnr than we nro in 1030. Wo conn dentlv look forward In thn next contest for a different result. Tlio Presidential elec tion will then have passed nway." CT When wo hear eood nnd true Whigs pay " What can wo do in Ih) coming clec lion I fear Van Huron h too strong for us" the answer should be, "Do your duty ex nrt yourself, go to the Polls and vote, nnd leave tho rest lo Providence and n good caiHC." Timid politicians arc dead weighls on the republic. When (Jen. Urown nskod Col. Miller whether Im could carry n strong fortress by storm, hi nnswnr wns, " will try. Sir."" Tint is nil that is wanting j try and defeat Van Huron, and ho i defeated j never despair never give up never allow tho vain boasting of vnur adversaries to shako vnu from tho lino of your duty. If we were to believe what tho army ofodico holders tell us, Harrison would not get n single state in tho Union. Now wo say distinctly nnd unequivocally, Van Iiurcn cnnnol be elected. Ho had gained all up lo August that he could possibly gain ; from that period to November next, ho low ho goes down. Tho recent elections in Ken tucky, Indiana. North Carolina. Louisiana, Alabama and Missouri sufficiently indicate the impossibility of Air Van Huron's receiv ing the voles ol the South and West. Sime of his friontls still, however, claim for his Mippirt Virginia nnd Pennsylvania. The Slntcs of Oliio, North Carolina, Kentucky, Tenncsscoe, Massachusels, South Carolina, Georgia, Maryland, Indiana, Alabama, Vermont, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Delaware and Arkansas, which will aU go for Harrison, makes n majority againn Van lluren, cxelutive of Pennsylvania or Virgin ia, fourteen although wo consider Virginia safe, and Pennsylvania sure. JV. I'. Star. Our lukewarm politicians, the waiters upin Providence, who have boon lamenting over the inevitable ruin of our country, and yet r 'fused to net like men nnd freemen to recover t riot r rights, are now nobly relitiUcu by the eflorts and the glorious triumph of the North Carolina Wings. Had tliev too 1 folded l heir hands, and given up all for lost without n struggle, ruthless proscription and party violence, would have itill con tinned their sway in that portion of our land. Hut unintimidated by power, uinwed by menace, uncnrriipted by the spoils, the gal lon! sons nf North Carolina have rushed gallantly to tho field, and with upwards of 15,000 majority agiinst them, nothing daunted, contended hand to hand, and glo riously conquered the enemy. Alb. Ado. The Rkpuolican Pautv. It is well known that the friends of Mr. Van Huron assume to themselves the name of the re publican party, but by what right wo should like to know. Is it hecano Iheir favorite has uniformly opposed tho leading men of l lint parly, while he thought ho could tie rive advantage from opposing them ? Is it because ho was opposed to Madison, Clin ton, and Jackson .' Isitbeciuso ho advo- rated the election to the Senate of the U. States, of that high Inncd Federa'ist, Ru- rushmg? is it because lie was a Missouri rcstriclionist f Is it because the federal States of Rhode Island and Connecticut have suddenly abandoned I heir principles, and hoisted the Van Huron fl lg ? I i short, is it because t It c republican slates of the south n'ud west are almost unanimously op posed to him ? .Often was it said in 1023, that the con test between Gen. Jackson and Mr. Adams was a contest for principles, not for men All the stnlos which vutud for Jackson were called democratic states, and those which sustained Adam- were termed fede ral states. At l hut time. Maine, New Hampshire, Rhode Islnnd, Connecticut and New Jersey voted for Adams. These stales arc all nou for Van Huron. The following States give their electoral vote for Gen. Jackson in 1020, viz: Ohio, Kentucky. Ttaiueiseo, North Cimlina Alabama, Louisiana and Mi"oun. VYtcy are now all nppisul It .Ur fan Iiurcn. Comment is tweloss. It is evident lint the states which elected Andrew Jiek-ou President arc fast uniting upon Judge While as Ins succosfur; and Ihe Mali's which were in a minority in 1020. will be again in a minority in ICJC.

He stopped at H iwen's null, nnd informing tho miller that Gen. Jackson would pass in a carriage and four while horses in a little whllo, asked him to deliv er the General the following message : "That he was glad to hear lie was going to the herfniiagu, and hoped he would stay there, for ho had done mischief enough at Washington." In a few minutes the Pres. idcut cast up, and the miller, faithful to Ins trust, hailed liun."Mr. Jackson! Mr. Jack son !" The Pro.-ident, with bis accustom cd courtesy, called a halt, and pulled oil' his hat to the hailing party ; and the miller coming up, nsk'd htm, if ho had met agon lleman a mile or so down the road: The Presider.t replied ho had.

Jas. Downing, one of the Commissioners of Slnrk county, is the gen tleman that was appealed to by this mighty politician. The Democrat says : " We nro informed by responsible men, that Jus.

Who ark tiik Ani-Tocr.ATs. The Len don Morning Herald, speaking of our new Minister to England, Mr Stevenson, who is ono of Mr Van Huron's followers and friends, says he is " likely to be popular with the Aristocracy. " Tho Globe, whether ns "oflicinl" or ''un official," wo n-o not informed, announces that Mr Van Huron rides in an American, and nut in an English carriage. Thonaugh. ty Whigs, il appears, have put him into tin English carriage, with English horses, and English men ns drivers, and therefore, on this account, it is probable tho Globe thinks il nn nfi'ur of sufficient importance to take him nut. The naughty Whigs nre very wrong, and we must set them right. When Mr Van Huron first came hack from England, ho came back with many airs, Willi much of the petit m'litrc in his manners, and more in his eqtiippago : but the correspondents in Wuslnugtnn, and the male society there, which, inlhe absence of men's wives, daughters, nnd lady-friends, is not tho t nit it polished in the world, soon rubbed him down and brought him back within the American pale. Mr. Van llu ren. we beliovo, did bring over with him an English carriage; but be this as it may, the one he sported in at Washington was a splendid one, and an honor, if made here, tu any American who made it. Ills horses were the finest that could be found; but fur this we do not blame him, as who would not have fine horses when he could but gel them. His servants and this was a piece of fully wcro Knglish servants -and which was a greater folly still- -wero clad in live ry. Tho servants could not ho mistaken, such fitio, full, 'leor.drinkiiig boys did they seom lo hi. A folly wo say tho importing of English servants was, for Mr. Van Hu ron who stands nt I ho head of tho "Dcmo cratio parly." which nt limes lliinks tho unrso nl n man (soothe New Hampshire Pntriot) for hiving a clean shirt on, should never have madcuch an importation, there by insinuating that none but those who had been the livery men cf dukes, and viscounts and lords, wore fit servants for liitn, though by the way, wc don't blame ono for ob taining English servants when ho can got one. A fully ngam it was tn clutho theso servants in livery, for a livery, like a coat of arms, is not in very good taste in this part of the country, where perhips half of our rich men some day or other wurc a livery themselves, nnd where not ono in ten of iu can tell whoso sorvau's our fa'hers wore. Hut ono of the most nmosing exhibitions in Wnshington, tho fust winter Mr.Van Huren came there, was tho witnessing of tho manner in which he was forced to dofif his plumage, feather by feather. The Washington correspondent- -thu Whig rogues began upon his livery, and anon that went oh", and his lino portly English servants, who had no doubt sported thoir feathers and regimentals in Regent and Hind streets, and upon tho Houlevards of Paris, looked liko so many peacocks with their tails cut oil'. Tho Washington cor respondents, the greater rogues they were, when flushed wild this triumph, then began upon Iho English carriage, and there they won nno'her victory, lor the English car riage was put nside and a new republican looking wa taken in its stead. Tho Eng lish servan's as yet we belive, hold their places. Tho correspondents to this day, as wo understand, have not won a victory over them. JV. Y. Ilcprcss. Notici: Ex nt l ! ! I To.
