These fact no doubt prevented thousands from attending who otherwise would have done to. The 20th was plea Sant enough but the morning of the 2lbt was ushered in with cold winds and rain. Notwithstanding this the Star Epa ogled Banner was soon waving from several prominent Point. The military companies turned out with full ranks accompanied by the band and at 10 o clock the line was formed. By this hour the people had poured in by thousands and formed in the procession. The procession then moved up the Road about one mile and were formed on a Large vacant lot where notwithstanding the i clemency of the weather they maintained their position admirably. In the mean time the cavalry proceeded up the Road when they met and escorted the vice president to the line where he was duly received and passed Down the line under escort of the military greeted by the acclamations of thou Sant s. The procession then to cached into and through a number of streets in the town and halted at the Public Square where the vice president and his distinguished friends were conducted to the stand erect the elections. Picnic Sylvania. It is Gratifying to notice the result of the elections in this Noble state. It has been confidently asserted by the whig that Harrison must be sure of one of the three great states of Pennsylvania. New York or Virginia to stand any Chance of an election. Pennsylvania the one most calculated on by them has gone against them by a heavy majority. In 45 counties heard from the Correct democratic majorities amount to %,854 Federal majorities to 18,489 democratic maj. So far the nine counties to be heard lows in 1836 8 democratic 1 Federal from 7,385 voted As 2,244 477 1,767 this added to the above majorities stands thue in 4 it counties 7,.365 in 9 Quot in 1836 1,767 9,lb2 if the remaining nine counties Only do As Well As in 1836 and we Are inclined to think they will do better we shall have a democratic majority of Over 9,000.

T is state the opposition most confidently claim and we Are not disposed at this time to dispute this claim. Gen. Harr a Ltd at the last presidential election received a majority of near 9000 votes and it is quite probable that Cor win the whig candidate for governor will be elected by near the same majority.

In the evening the court House was crowded to a degree Seldom if Ever before witnessed. Gen. T. A. Howard took the stand col. Johnson being seated at his right Aud in speech of several hours he not Only astonished his enemies but even his friends. Such a torrent of truth reason argument biting sarcasm humor and anecdote we never listened to. To describe the speech or its effect transcends our Powers. The court House Shook with reiterated applause. Anon the silence of the grave reigned. Then the speaker s voice would in its deep full tones i break through like the rumbling Oft be Distant Thun i Der till reaching his Point it would assume the a i Ful grandeur of the Volcano.

It was in the vividness of Conception the Force of logic the strength of argument the Power of truth and the natural ease with which it was brought Home to the mind. He ended amid thunders of applause and far Distant is the Day when the effect of this speech is obliterated from the minds of those who heard it. We need no better evidence of its Power and effect than the Fri things of the courier Aad the fact also that a meeting was called by our opponents the next evening undoubtedly for the sole purpose of getting Back tii eee who were made to think. With what Suc oese the move was made we have not Learned. The next morning col. Johnson was escorted to Turman s Creek where he was met of a Large concourse and an excellent Barbecue prepared.

Thus far 6,667 six counties remain to be heard from namely Indiana Jefferson Potter Mckean Venango and Wayne the first Federal and the other five democratic. Since the above was in Type we have receive the returns from Indiana county which gives 475 majority for the whigs. In 1836, the 5 remaining counties gave a democratic majority of 1545 votes. The Pitt Burgher taking the vote of these counties to be the Sanae As in 1836, makes the popular majority we have no doubt of Pennsylvania going for Van Buren by a very heavy majority. New Lusty crowing of the Federal whigs Over this state began to Lead us into doubt about the correctness of their statements. The following from the Louisville advertiser makes it appear rather squally for them. We give it As embracing All that we have made up to our hand. Let not the federalists be deceived by their own lying organs. They Are not going to carry new Jersey in the sort of hand Gallop they imagine or rather feign to believe. We rather think it would be prudent of them to prepare for an Tackno wedge mint of defeat. Let us present the federalists with a recapitulation of the statements of their own press. The Fol lowing table is prepared from the returns Given by the Baltimore Patriot and a Zurnal of Commerce with the exception of Atlantic county which is taken at the majority of 18.

A More vice attempt to Humbug and cajole the a Oiin try people of the eve of an election we have eel Dorli seen. It eau out with an of Tai coached in the whig newspaper style of the Day filled with boasting and reiterating assertions which have been time and again refuted. It has the modesty to claim every sta9 in which elections have been held for Harrison. In it the result be what it May we ask the Oon try people to Lay aside this Donnie it till the official result is known beyond the Power of contradiction. Then examine it Aud see if you cannot pick out a few false hoods and if you find any ask yourselves Quot for what were they intended 1&Quot a Freeman will have but one answer Quot to operate on the vote you Are about to ask yourselves now if Harrison is so a lire of being elected if Quot the question is settled Quot Why All this extra exertion Why All this in a state decided to be for him by a Large portion of both parties 1 Why this sending out of political missionaries to every township in the county to Tell the people How to vote Are the people fools that they must Send out half a score of Terre haute gentlemen Judger office holders apothecaries and gentlemen of no particular business to see that they vote As they desire Here Are the Mission Aries Thomas Dov Iling to Prairie Creek Jot.

King to Nevins. What think you of this freemen ? those in italic Are office holders. Can you not see do you not feel that these men have something at stake besides a Reform in the government do they propose any meat net to Benefit the people ? do they place any code of print plos before you that you May know what they intend to do should they obtain the reins of government no. They have raised a Hue and cry against Martin Van Buren precisely similar to that raised against Andrew Jack Eon. Who is it done by ? by the very men who raised it against Gen. Jackson. Now and then they have deceived an old Jackson Man into their ranks. But will he say on his own responsibility that or. Van Buren does not follow out the measures Laid Down by Jackson himself and that too in the face and eyes of what Gen. Jackson says in the affirmative ? he will Why because these missionaries and their minions take Good care that he shall have but 07ie tide. That these men believe they can retain Power so unjustly obtained in Case they Are successful we cannot think. Therefore the belief forces itself on our mind that if they Are successful an open base and even violent attempt will be made to change our form of government and establish a limited monarchy on its ruins. They do not believe the assertions of this infamous electioneering Handbill. They cannot. The contrary facts Are before them. If any of the people Are foolish enough to risk their property in foolish betting and find themselves deceived at last who Are they to blame these men will shift the blame from their own shoulders to those of their Eastern co Tempora Ries and what satisfaction will that be to you beware of these far to a a Maine Bas gone for the whigs. Of Virginia last year Aud year before the brags should not be forgotten. Quot Hurra for old Virginne Quot a Quot Rives will be re elected u. S. Senator Quot said the courier. Was it so no Mark who Virginia and North Carolina Voles for for president. Now they Are claimed by the whigs As Quot settled Quot for Harrison As Well As Maine Georgia Louisiana Delaware new Jersey and Michigan. They also claim new York and Pennsylvania although returns Are in town and Correct ones giving the democrats a majority of Over six thousand. Before Dowling got his Cue he was disposed to give up the latter state. Why then has he All at once Laid claim to it to answer the demands of his masters and influence the elections. Scarcely a figure in the list in this Handbill As the votes of the different counties in Pennsylvania is Correct. And go far from the whigs Quot gaining two members of Congress Quot the very reverse is the truth. The election news in this paper shows the results truly As far As known. We have no time to handle this Handbill As it should be done. It was kept Back till near the election to prevent it being held up to Public gaze. We can Only say to the people see if you Ore not deceived. Learn if you cannot vote for yourselves without being led and shown How to do it by men whom you support by the sweat of your brows. If you Are not ready yet to throw off the Yoke and rid yourselves of the Burden which really oppresses you we cannot help it. But we have this Faith in your integrity and patriotism that when you learn what it really is which oppresses you you will come up to the work in Earnest. You will not Only throw from your shoulders the Load which a Bastard aristocracy has imposed on you and seeks to Continuo but you will Burl them to their native nothingness. We Appeal to freemen not to slaves to examine for themselves and suffer no dictation from a a Quarter. To the whig Farmers of Vigo we speak not to the democratic. There is no fear of the latter their eyes Are open. They have suffered too deeply to suffer themselves to be saddled again. They will be at the polls every Mother s son of them to Vole As they please. They consider the democrats of Terre haute no better than themselves but just As Good. They suffer no dictation but such As their consciences Tell them. In conclusion if any Democrat can spare the time we advise them to go and hear these missionaries. Behave like men. Listen attentively and find out whig principles if they can. Note if the speeches be not made up of denunciation of some and Gross flattery of others. If the whigs intend to better our condition Sci of How it is to be done. In Fine learn if any thing new is to be advanced and if so Why we have not heard of it before. Or. s speech.

We can Crow. this state the feds have succeeded but by the most unheard of frauds such As must eventually break up any party using or count enhancing them. It is not saying too much when we state that according to evidence of the facts published in the Ohio papers full 30,000 fraudulent votes were Given for the Federal abolition candidate. Or. Duncan the terror of the Federal whig bullies has been Defeated by open barefaced fraud by a few votes. We understand the doctor will contest his seat and if he does we think he will obtain it. The democrats have 22 senators out of 36, the whole number being a majority of d. The Feda have a majority in the House. The democracy of that Gallant state Are in no Wise discouraged but Are buckling on their Armor for a continuance of the fight. They deserve Success and will try Liard to ensure it. The tremendous in parity claimed by the whigs is fast dwindling Down and we doubt if the actual result does not reduce it at least one half. Harrison earned the state in 1836, and yet he was not elected. Fiary on done Day last St about 18 o clock our citizens were alarmed by Ery of fire.

Their improvement is surely rapid and evident and we Are glad to see that their services begin to be in demand. As Good evidence of this after they had played through the Day wading through the mud ankle deep they were engaged to go to Vermillion county and started off without even stopping for refreshments. We understand they visited several places during their absence one of which was Rock Ville in Parke county. And Here it is our pain Fri duty to a sort a Man happened to one at it. Members.

We had always thought very highly of the people of paric county but Little did we think it contained one who would whether deliberately or not we can t say shoot a Terre haute boy and he on an excursion for their amusement we advise them to hold a Public meeting at once and either confine such eyes or get a Parson to Compromise the matter and Send both parties to Terre haute.
