INTENSELY INTERESTING 8TATE OF THE PRESIDENTIAL QUESTION! The Prevailing Opinions in the Various Camps. LATEST BULLETINS FROM THE FIELD OF CONFLICT! Manifesto of the Whlgf. [From the Daily Tribune J To Whios Afar ?This is the lust paper which will reach some thousands of our subscribers be fore the great contest is decided, and Henry Clay or James K. Polk elected President of the United States. Allow us to addresB a few words to you, then, brethren in the whig cause? We entreat you, by every consideration dear to Freeman, to 1. Be ture that every whig vote in your Town it polled for EUctort of tretident Do not trouble vourseif toe much about other counties and Slates; do not run off to distant Conventions and Mass Meetings ; but take care of things right at heme, and trurt your brethren elsewhere to do likewise. Do n?.t ask whether your State is certain or doubtful: we want all the whig votes for Henrv Clay. If you live in a State as safe as Vermont or as dark as South Carolina, just do your whole duty and trust consequences to the disposer of events It is not enough that we barely elect Mr. Clay; we must show a decided whig preoonderance in the popular vote of the Union, and to do thin every whig vole must come out. A vote in Alabama will couut just as much toward the aggregute as one in New Yotk. 2 Be ready for Rain?The day of election may be stormy?there may be a driving, blinding snow storm in some sections, and a northeast rain in others; this must not reduce.the whig vote?if you are prepared for it, it will not. But you mvut be ready, know where the carriages are to be had, and who is to bring to the polls each remote voter who has no conveyance of his own. Arrange this at once, and be sure that the men appointed can be relied upon. 3. Be wide awake for electioneering liei?You will very likely have new*, just on the eve of election, that Mr Clay is dead, or has dene some horrible thing, or that the whigs in iome section hare abandoned bim There ii nothing too incredible, nothing too monsti oui, to be fa bricated by a portion of >our adversaries. Tbevil.alns who can persist in assuring the people ot Pennsylvania tbat Poik is friendly to the present tariff, or at any rate to a protective tariff, will not hesitate to forge Mr Clay's name to any document which might aeem calculated to subserve their nefarious purposes 4 You have organized, we trust, the whig party in your townxhip and precinct; you have supplied every man of both parties who will read with whig documents ou the great questions of the day. Now will von just see that no loul means are used to ueprivu the wnig cause ol votes that fairly belong to it 7 If a man is set against us, that is euougb. But there are thousands even now op posed to us who would vote for Mr. Clay if the Tariff and Texaa Questions were clearly set before them. Thou sands are now supporting Polk in the full belief tbat he will not attempt to destroy the tariff, nor to annex Texas at the hazard of a war with Mexico. Press the facts home on their understandings, on their consciences, and tbey will, il not vote for Mr. Clay, withhold their vote* frem folk Will you each try to impress one candid, consci entious neighbor with such truths T i, Br on the watch fur etc ret lits ? Wherever a naturalis ed citizen is a whig, he will be a special mark for locofoco deception and wile. Such were told in 1840 that if Gen Harrison should be elected, they would all be sent out ol the country ; now they are told that the whigs burnt the Catholic churches in Philadelphia?that the whigs have adopted the native principle of requiriiig twenty-one years residence betore naturalization of all foreigners who shall hereafter come into the country, fcc. be. To igno rant men the tariff will be grossly belied and maligned in secret whispers. Are you ready for all such devices 7 6. Be sure to devote the day before election to making the last preparations lor the contest. See every man in your neighborhood-know that he has not been secretly tampered with and disaffected?know that he will start lor the polls early on the eventful morning, and has the means of getting there. Do not lay your head on a pillow tbat night until every thing is ready. Whig reader! do not understand us as speaking to soma one else?to some esquire, or captain, or head man?we mean you! Can you not affjrd a few days to your coun try7 They may aave you and your children peril, suffer, ing. taxation to sustain unjust, aggressive war?tbey may secure you yea- s of prosperity, oh, be not unfaithful to the cause of true freedom, of liberty guarded by law?of genuine national honor and national well being! The October Election* have not hten to decisive as either party expected. The four States ctaimid by both partiei have givn indecisive majoiitin Ohio and New Jersey have tone clearly whig, yet apathy and inattention might loie either of them; Pennsylvania has given just about at much against us as in the State election of 184#, and may be car ried fnr Prrsident now as she was then; Georgia gives a small majority against us on the popular vote, but our friends aiiwe us that she will go whig in November. Ml is to be de cided by the energy the ardor, the well-directed effort of the next three weeks. In one retard, we rejoice that this is so We would not have it ?aid that Henry Clay was elects) before New York could participate in it. If we are not grossly deceived, she is fully prepared to render a noble acceunt of her- elf on the 6th of November. Glorious will be the reflection that, unimpelled by the momentum of other Mates - uninfluenced by Pennsylvania or Virginia New York saved the tariff and the Union by giving her potential vote for Henry Clay! Whigs of the distant States! you may trust her. Do but your duty, and rely on the performance of hers ! manifesto of the Democrats. [From the Morning News.] Th* Quistion Skttmd.?All the Summer and Fall Elections (previous to the Presidential con test) are now over?with the exception of South Carohpa and Arkansas, which, as overwhelmingly Democratic, of coarse, are immaterial to our pre sent purpose. The time has now, therefore, arri ved for making a general recapitulation of the whole, to exhibit an unanswerable proof of the di rection and sweeping force of the political tide The present article, by the way, was prepared for yesterday's JVewi The Journal of Commerce of yesterday, went partly over the same ground, hut in a different manner, and in some respects less fully. The following are the States which have held elections since the making up of the great issue be tween the parties, by the nominations of their res nective Presidential tickets : ? Louisiuna, North Carolina, Alabama, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Missouri, Vermont, Maine, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Georgia, Ohio. We present in a tabular form the comparative results of ihese elections, and of the contest in 1840?to which a few preliminary remarks alone are necessary In Louisiana, the democratic majority of 1.000 is a very low estimate. There was only a partial con test at the last election, no opposition being made to the democratic tickets in two of the districts U would be nearer the truth to set it down at 2,00(f In Missouri, the actual majority of Edwards, the "Hard" candidate, was 6,651. The allowance of 2,000 "Soft" democratic votes to allow, is undeni ably far below the truth?all which are Polk and Dalits votes This makes a difference in majority ?f 4 000, making the actual democratic majority about as stated below. In New Jersey, we set down the popular vole as about balanced, it being now ascertained that Thomi?on was defeated only on local and personal grounds, causing him to run behind his ticket, there being an actual democratic majority on the Council tickets. In Pennsylvania, we deduct the accidental and temporary nt>i>arent whig majority in the city and comity of Philadelphia, which no honest reasoner will prrtend to regard as any party test. In 1840, they gave a small majority for Mr. Van Buten. 1940 Louisiana 8 880 W. North Carolina.. . W,6?4 W. Alabama 6,6i0 D. Illinois 1 939 D. Indiana 13 W. Kentucky 25 873 W. Missouri 0 788 D. Vermont 14, Wi W. *' aine 411 W. Delaware 1,08* W. Maryland 4,7B6 W. New Jersey 1,316 W. Pennsylvania 343 W. Georgia 8 340 W. Ohio ya 376 W. It thus appears that in these fifteen States, com prising about seven-twelfths of the popular vote of the Union, we have already gained above 133 00O votes on the contest of 1840. Harrison's nominal majority then (excluding South Carolina, which chos?S its electors by the Legislature) was 145 900 From 15,000 to 20,000 is a low estimate of the de mocratic majority in South Carolina, where they are accustomed to say that " there are not whigt enough to make milestones of;" so that HarrisonV real majority was less than 128,000. The whole whig majority of 1840 is therefore already annihilated, in the democratic gain already secured in the fifteen Huts* which have held elections since the nominations These States are distributed over all th.' respect ive section* of the Union. A corresponding gsin is therefore to be fairly 11,000 D. J 000 D. 1,900 W 1.13,416 expected in the rest, which muit give a total democratic gain of 228.000. ?overcoming the whig majority of 1840, and affording a surplus of absolute democratic majority of not lesa thau 90,000. But we will not content ouraelves with simply inferring the democratic gain in the other Statu* to be in the aame ratio with that ihown by all the elections of the present summer and fall. Those States are, New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New York, Virginia, Michigan, Mississippi, Teniesaee and Arkansas.

Nor can it be pretended that these results are caused by thinness of the vote, as the whigs eftcn seek to excuse their defeats. For the aggregate vote of the present year has considerably exoeeded the unprecedented vote of 1840 So much for the Popular Majorities?a few words now upon the Electoral Votes. The tollowing States may be set down aa certain for Polk, beyond peradventure. Few whigs will contest them?still fewer would hazard a cent upon any one of them Maine. 0 Alabama 9 New Hampshire 0 Illinois 0 Virginia .....17 Missouri 7 South Carolina 9 Michigan 6 Georgia 11 Arkansas 3 Mississippi 6 91 The following we admit as certain for Clay, and there are no others claimed by the Whigs which are not se riously questioned by the Democrats :? Vermont 6 Rhode Island . 4 Massachusetts 13 Kentucky 1'J 34 The throwing we regard as no less certain for Polk though not included in the preceding number, bepause the Whigs pretend to lay some small claim to them :? New York .36 Louisiana 6 Pennsylvania 26 Indiana 13 70 The following are doubtful, though we are willing to concede the advantage of probability to be more or less in Clay's favor :? Connecticut 6 Maryland 8 Delaware 3 North Carolina 11 28 The following are doubtful, with an even balance of probabilitiea s? New Jersey 7 Ohio 33 Tennessee 13 ? 43 Polk is thus sure of 161 (twenty-three more than he needs) with an even chance lor 43 more, and at least some considerable chance for 33 more. New Jersey, Tennessee and Ohio are all evenly doubt ful In New Jersey, the small whig majority on the Governor is merely personal and foreign to the general iwlitlcal issue; Thomson runs far behind his ticket, and though we have not yet the full official returns, we are assured on reliable authorities, that the democracy have the true popular majority on the Council ticket. There are at least Irom 1,000 to 1,600 members of the Society of Friends whe voted for Btrattou, hut who could never be brought te vote for Clay ; while he has also some loss to "offer from the abolitionists. In Ohio, the smaliness of Bartley's majority makes it an evenly balanced State, while no corrcctly informed person will say that the lull abolition vote was cast on this occasion, which will come out against Clay. Bart ley is so far tinctured with aboli tionism as to have cariiedlwith him a large proportion ol that vote,at an election whin they did not leel called upon to bring out a lull test measure of their strength, as they design to do in November. The agricultural character of the State cannot fail also to make Clay, with his anti-ag ricultural and anti-commercial excesses of unequal pro hibitory protection, a much weaker candidate than the popular and excellent Bartley, against whom, moreover, *Pi>ly none ol those personal objections which will be found every where to detract sensibly from Clay's regu lar party strength. And as for Tennessee, the small whig majority in 184-2, of only 3 833, which was material ly influenced by question* of State politics, can acarcely tail to be overcome by the apirit of State pride and inter est, co-operating too with the general cauaea affecting the whole aonth. which have swept away from the whigs all hope even of Georgia, a State relied upon by them aa one of tbeir meat aecure. In all theae three Statea, therefore, Mr. Polk haa, in our judgment, decidedly the best chance. These states, with only fear votes out of the rest, would enable him to spare even New York and Pennsylvania.? Half ol tbeir vote, with either New York or Pennsylvania, would enable him to spare all the rest Upon New York no special remark is needed. Oar friends every where in the State are confident of a brilliant triumph. The sole chance lelt the whigs ia the hope of transferring a great democratic "native" vote to Mr. Clay?a danger of which we have now small apprehen sion, even it the -late at large was not reliable to over balance any possible majority which even the fullest sue cess in such a corrupt intrigue could give againat us ? Without New Yoik even the 7Yt'6un? will not claim even a peg to hang a hope upon. With it we want only eleven votes out of tne whole catalogue of doubtfal Statea. Pennsylvania the whigs attect to claim on the ground of the Tariff, in the wee of the 19,000 real demo cratic majority, of the severely contested election just terminated ; and notwithstanding their own avowal* be fore the eleotien, that if th?.y could not elect Markle, they could not give the vote of the State to Clay. They forget, too, that thia Tariff excuae ia a two-edged sword, and that if that question is to lose us the manufacturing State of Pennsylvania, it mast gain us in equivalent in agricultu re Ohio?to say nothing of Indiana and Tennessee, Ma ryland and North Carolina. In both Louisiana and Indiana, (both of which we could abundantly spare) we had the popular majorities at the late elections , which the general influences of the timea must not only aecure but materially enlarge. Kor Connecticut we have a (air chance The majority to he overcome ia very amall; our frienda are zealous, well organised, and morn than hopeful-confident. Maryland atanda all but evenly balanced on the last (?opular vote ; we regard our chance for it as the better of the two, though we have classified it differently, as a con cession to the fact that the nominal majority (648) was against a*. North Carolina votes after the decision of the general result, and generally in accordance with it. We, there fore. very confidently expect the addition of her vote, too, to awell the majority for the Democratic candidates. So mnch, then, for the electoral votes, as well as the popular ma.iotitiea. By what process ol calculation the Whiga are able to begin to elect Clay even on paper, we are at a los* to conceive. Whichever we turn ft, Polk la already elected, over and over again ; nor can any feebly wild effort of desperation, clutching at the floating straws of Abolitionism, Nativeism, ko., avail to save the fast sink ing fortunes of Clay and Claylsm, from the abyia In which they are soon about to be engalphed forever.

Theae we omit, because in Rhode Island there waa no contest ; because in Virginia the election wna only for mem bers of the Legislature, aid the returns of votes are very incomplete; because in Missouri there were two democratic candidates for Governor, and mo whig; and because in Delaware the election was only for Inspectors, and may net have caused a general turn-out. Front eleven states we have the foil vote,?and from five of them it is official, viz: Maryland, Connecticut, Norih Carolina, Kentucky, and Vermont. The election in New Hampshire wan held in March,Connecticut in April, Louisiana in July,?North Carolina, Indiana, Kentucky, Il linois, and Alabama, in August,?Vermont and Maine in September,?Maryland, Georgia, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Ohio, in October.

By comparing the results of the elections this year with those ot the Presidential election in 1840, it will be seen in most cases the vote ia larger now than then, and that the aggregate vo'e of the eleven States from which we have full returns, is 31,083 greater now than then ; the whole ?umber in 1844 being 806,n0? And in November, 1840 784,016 Incresse of votes 31,083 In the four 8tates irom which full returns have not yet reached us, although we know the general results, and about the majorities, the increase upon 1840 will be found to be still greater than in the eleven States just mention ed. Annexed are oflcUl returns from nineteen counties in Puunsylvania at the recent election, showing an in crenseot 16,036 upon the number oi votes in November 1840, and we have no reason to doubt that the same pro portion holds good throughout the State. 1844. 1840.

And st the Presidential in 1840 9,686 Increase 3,030 B?ing at ihe rate of 1 ',004 or 16,000 in the State at large. Georgia shows a similar increase. The vote in that State was 1,863 greater at the gubernatorial election in 1843, than at the Presidential in 1840; and it is still greater at present. In 31 counties there is an increase upon 1843 of 786 votes; being at the rate of fully 3,000 for the Statu at large, and 4,000 compared with the Presidential vote of 1840. In the first named eleven States, it will be seen that the democratic vote at the recent elections, was larger, by 67,766. than at the Presidential election in 1840, ami a* large within 10,000 as the whig vote then was. ' While the democratic vote has increased 67,766, the whig vote haa diminished 36,683. Total, 94 440. From these facts, and others like them, we think it is evident that the whigs are to have a plenty of work 011 hand at the ensuing Presidential election, and il they gain the day, the zest of the triumph will be so much the greater. One peculiarity we have noticed in the elections this year, viz: that in several cases where the popular vote exhibited a democratic majority, the whigs navu earn, d the Legislature. Such was the case in Indiana and Lou isiana. j(3o also in Virginia If we take the Legislatures as a criterion, and suppose the States will go the same way in November, the results in the above fifteen would be as follows;?

Of seventeen United States Senators, whose terms expire on the 4th of March next,?including Mr Talmadge of this Stste, whose resignation has proba bly ere this been communicated to the Governor,?thir teen are whigs, aad lour Locos, as follows * Whigi lAtot.

By the rerults of the elections this year, the choice of whig Senators is secured in Vermont, New Jersey, Mary lam', Virginia, Indiana, and Ohio, the last a whig gain. In Connecticut, a whig Senator (Mr. Huntlngion) has already been chosen for the next six years, and there is no doubt that whigs will be chosen in Massachusetts and Rhode Islsnd. To go no further, the whigs are sure of 0 out of the 17 Senators embraced in the class of 184S, and have a chance in some ol the other States. Of the Senators who hold over, 16 are whigs, to which add 0, aa above, and the whigs have 36, beiQg only one short .if half the whole numher Two more will give them a majority, and these they will hsve a fair chance to get in some of the donblful States, viz.:?New York, Delaware, and Tennessee.

From Jamaica.?Dates to the 8ih of September have been received at New Orleans , the Governor had dissolved the House of Assembly on the 27ih ol August, and ordered writs for a general election in February next. This measure haB .been pro duced by the rapid increase ol the liberal party, who desire to separate the government from the church, a measure deemed almost treasonable by the existing government. It is believed that the nrw legislature will attempt to dissolve the union between church and etate ai now existing in the colony. But the legislative council appointed by the crown would no doubt veto the measure, while it is feared that the Home government would punish the colonists by de priving them of their present constitution, and estHblishing a military despotism instead.
