Til NO. 5251, MlKcllaiironi Political Intelligence. qen. Taylor's presknt prospects for the presidency. We have heretofore stated that the aspect of tha political horlcon was suoh that the electoral vote of either Pennsylvania or Ohio was absolutely necessary for the success of Gen. Taylor. The results of the elections in Georgia and Florida, and the recent dot\f miMiM Anlnint. In lM. ../I Wisconsin. have somewhat changed the political aspect; and supponing that Taylor stands a lair chance of carrying tho?e States it appears that he may be elected without the vote of eithpr Pennsylvania or Obio, although there States are and will be still considered tbe battle ground. The following is the table of States now likely to cte fi r Gen. Tsyior. leaving out of view Pennsylvania and Ohio, the former of which, sinee the election of Governor Johnston, and from other prospects, must be set down as more than probable for Taylor.

' Some persons are of opinion that a union will take place in Vtrmont between the free soil men and the dtrni crate,to as to give the vote to Van Buren If so, tbe vote of Taylor would bereducu.1 to 151, and it' wa even take oil Wiscon>-iD. also, he is still elected, supposing Indiana and Iowa vote for him. a? we believe they will.

The I'enmylvanian of yet-terday morning endeavors to hold out hopes to tbe democrats ofthe election of Longstreth m , Governor, but upon the whole,rather given it up. and say* that " at moat we can only be defeated by a very small majority." The table or majorities given in the Pennsylvania* cleaily showg the election of Johnston. We should think his majority would be about 200? the closest contfrt ever known in Pennsylvania In 1840 Harricou'g majority wag SfiO The democrat* elect their candidate, Paynter, for Canal CommiFsioner, by about 2.000 majority. Middlenwartb, the whig candidate, was a conspicuous anti ioahon, and lost many masonic as well as native totes. HARRiaBURd, Oot. 18.?12 o'clock, P M. The following estimate, made by an eminent politician, will give quite a different complexion to the result in this State.

(Coverly's Hotel,) on brandy and Water, and on official-returns It is absolutely amusing to see the excitement whioh pervades all classes; and every body ha* a piece of paper in their bands; and with pencil tbey rush from printing office to b?r-room, and every other channel, whereby a gleam of hope for tbeir respective symathies may be obtained On the first ifloeh of bope and victory, tbe whUs decorated the trontofSande s' Washington House with a transparency, from wblch a feeble light was seen. A* soon as the returns began to pour In from tke northern counties, tbe picture vanished, to await a further potting of tbe books. A grand jollification at (Poverty's Hotel In honor of the triumph, has been in like manner postponed much to tbe chagrin of mine host. If tbe domoeracy have succeeded in carrying Longatreth. If it be only by a majority of one vote, the moral effect will be to give the State to them in the approaching Presidential contest, unless tbe whig* concentrate all tbeir power in tbe commonwealth, aud attack it pith'a brilliant sortie of their b>-st spankers. A prophecy. SUSQUEHANNA. THE OHIO ELECTION. The election for Oovernor seems to be still in doubt> bat if we set aside reports, and look at the aotual returns in figures, it looks favorable for Kord. (whig) as elected. Thus, the Cincinnati Oazetlt, (whlg)gives return -. from 63 counties, showing a majority fur Ford of 1,203. There were 18 counties to be heard from,which in 1846 gave Tod, (democrat) a majority of 970. If they Lave done the same now, Kord's majority will be about 800. The Oczeitr, with regard to the probable vote of Oblofor President, remarks: ? " What influence will the result of the Ob!o State election exert upon the Presidential election.' Will ber 23 to ten be given to Cut4 They will, unles* tho.-c opt om d to him- really oppised him and hi* ways? foryet minor difference* and unite to oppose him. They will not, It the wblgt us a body, and the true opponent of the extension of slavery, unite in opposition to Mm. They will not. if the friends of General Taylor rally and exert themselves In his support. The friends of Tuylor and Kiklmoru ean give the* the vote ot Ohio If they will. This we firmly belie** and we are glad to learn, that the proper steps are taken to frcure the State " k The ( olumbus Slnte Journal, (also whig) of the even ? ingof the 14th Inst fays: ? Of the eighty-five counties in Ohio, the vote for Oo, Ternor official or unofficial, has been received from all but thirteen. The counties heard from give aggregate * majorities, for Seabury Kord 20.071, and for John R. Weiler of 17 928?showing a net majority for Kord of A (H3. The counties not beard from are ilanoook, Henry. Hocking. Monroe, Ottawa. Paulding, Putnam, Van Wert, Williams. Wood and Ueliunoe, wbioh. In 184(1, gave an aggregate majority for Tod (looo) of 2 81ft- and Lawrence and Meigs, which, in lMrt, g??e an aggregate majority for Bebb (whig) of 874. If, then fore, the 1U counties to be heard from shall vote as in 1946. there will be (according to our figures, which wn have taken some pains to current.) a majority for Kord in the State, of 6!?2.

Long before this reaches you yon will have been apprized of the result of a struggle here between the " old hunkers," who go for party, and nothing else, and a portion of the democratic party. who have determined to cut the leading strings by which the State baa been made to follow such de vious pains ior several years, noi auuougn you may h? v# beard of the remit, aom? of thn details may not be uninteresting or out of place at the present time. The first organisation of this party wan for the election of Mr. llntoheson for Mayor. an<l nobly have th?y succeeded ; defeating the old hunkers, breaking up their organisation, and soatterlng and dividing even their leaders. It was thought, however, this being a national question, that the old drill sergeants could whip the refractory into line with the oil party cries, but it was no go. Against the combined influence of the press, ifor the Taylor men have no paper to represent their views;) against the promises and threats of old political hacks ; and without lealers. the peo?le ol Charleston have at last determinid to think for themselves, and give free vent to their fueling!) of respect, love, and admiration, which they eutertaiu for the hero patriot, honest old Zaclt., who stauds on the platform of the cou titution, and has declared he will be the President 01 ilie* i uitcu ounce, auu doi oi a pariy?a pia.iunn loii^ unoccupied by ?ay ['residential candidate ; and win re honest men of all parties, throwing off the tr ramels of party backs, can freely support him This feeling of admiration for the peoples' candidate has ptiuck a chord in Carolina, which *ill sound the knell of tbore who attempt longer to control her by purely party drill It has re-elected Holmes. in spite of the low abuse h< aped < n him daily through the paper* it lm seut fourteen Taylor representatives and a Taylor Senator to the legislature, and would have sent the entire ticket, only fcr the running of Bianding (whip) independently It is the dawning of a new day in Carolina ; and, although Taylor may nat get the vote of the State at this election, you may safely predict that this freedom of action, once aroused among the vot?rs, urging theui to think for themselves, will spread until it fball predominate, and give a new tone to the future action of the State. JIM. Albany, Oct. 16, 1818. The 'IVouble among the Odd Fellows. Your correspondent here is in error with reference to the existing difficulties in the order of Odd Fellows, in this State. He attributes the cause of difference to a disposition on the part of the " country lodges" (meaning all out of the city of New York) of changing the location of the Grand Lodge, which is now located in your city, to some more central portion of the State;; which is not the question at issue between the belligerents. And, further, he does great injustice to a number of worthy members of the order, in charg. ing them with indecorous conduct towards the members of Ilooe Lodne. as I will be able to show hereafter; and, as jour paper stands first in the confidence of the publio, with regard to the truthfulnos" of its statements, I think you will not hesitate to oor. rect that which can be proved to be incorrect. I do not wish to be understood as imputing to your correspondent wilful misrepresentations; but that he has been deceived must be admitted by those Who are at all acquainted with the facts. It is well Known by members of the order that the Graqd Lodge of the United States directed the Urand Lo'lge ot the State to pass upon alorm of constitution which was to be submitted at the November nes?ion of 1847. and, if it passed (as it unquestionably was, and that, too, by a decided vote, of ayes 202, to noes 77), then It thould go immediately into provisional force, and become the fundamental law. The lodges favorable to it immediately organized in conformity with it* provisions, when it wax discovered by a few persons who weie hostile to it from tbe beginning, that it wan not lrgally adopted, and persuaded the then (irttnd Master Into the beliet, who, thereupon Issued a proclamation, setting aside the new ooustitution, aud declaring the old one to be the lair which bhoul<1 govtru the order in this State. This wan, as you may well suppose, received with astonishment as wull as indignation, by the great muss of the brotherhood throughout the 8tate. It was the Grand Master arrayed auainst the Grand Lodjjc aud calling upon lodgts aud members to obey Inua, instead of the body, whicb is the " supreme tribunal " over tb?in an well as him. This " document" received a merited disregard Iroui those who refused to bow to the rule of the " oneman power," and hence the Grand Sire w?? called upon to interpose his authority, by assumiug the right to deride the question at issue between the representatives of the Grand Lodge of this State and their Gland Master, by issuing a "commission" to live I prominent members of the order (a majority of whom had previously committed themselves upon tb? question) to take the testimony in to whether the new constitution had been legally adopted, aud !?}ort the facts for his ultimate dccison. Tim testimony in the case was entirely parte, ai the friends of tl:n new constitution refused to appear before the "commission" to give their evidence, brcftu&e tbuy questioned the legality of the steps taken by the tirand Sire in thus disposing of a question that should alone be decided in the Grand Lodne ot the Lnited States : and upon this piint was the appeal taken to that body, and there decided against the friends of the new onstltmton. This decision of the Giand Lodge is considered as nnjust, by a majority of the brethren, who are determined to resist such an usurpation of power, which creates in Odd-Fellowship a dsspotirm, aud makes the (Jrand Sire the autocra: of the order. Since this droiMon, a lew or the Loaves are disponed to jield to it ; nod among that niitnbt r, Hope Lodge, (Ibe only one in Ibe city) at a meeting a few evening-* since, when few of their members wore prudent, agteed to go back. by a vote of Keren in favor and three agsinf-t. ont of a Lodge containing l",u mi'iuber*. The Secretary it as directed immediately to notify the Gracd l.< dge. working under the old constitution, their villiugnefg to acknowledge them as their head ; and who immediately (the head) sent up a ''delegation" to " reinstate" these repentant brothers When these facts were circulated among the fraternity, it attracted a large attendance from oiher Lodge*, soma out of curicsity, and mm? by special invitation of the Hepe members, to witnem tbe proceeding*, and not " with a view of prevenliug the installation." As Invited guests of Hope Lodge, they refused to recognize the power of any perron, except those of the otll ;ers, to order them out of the room ; and hence they re fused to obey the mandate of the " delegation but, when requested to do so by the proper officers, quietly retired to the ante-room As to the charge of ' iasulting member* of Hope Lodge, on making their egress Iroin the room," it is utterly false ; and the *' uproar and rlitous conduct" attribnted to the ''beloved brethren out'ide," may have been confounded by those "dear brethren inside" with tbe old hunker meeting directly under > them, which wm in fall blaet at the time.

The horses were on a line find under good headway when lbe word was given, nnd they dashed round on the upper turn of the track at a tremendous rate, rather too fust, in fHUt, for the horse, as he broke and foil off about two lengths soon after passing the dratvgate, which advautvge the mare retained until she passed the ball'mile pele' She went the lirst quarter in thirtysevt n feconds, and the first half mile of the heat in 1:14.
