The Election. The Raleigh
Star has increased Gen. Dudley's
rhijority for Governor to 5,140,
the returns from Wilkes and Gates
having been incorrectly given.
The precise vote will not proba

to be sealed and transmitted to

is to open and publish them in

CJTlie Address of the Com

Presidential Election, is in prog

Keutucky, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois,
and even Virginia, and still he will
have but 124 Votes. The plot,
then, must be, on behalf of those
who urge the people to vote for
Judge White, and who profess to
consider it "unfortunate" that the
election should go to the House,
to transfer the voles of Judge
White, in the electoral college, to
Gen. Harrison. Are the honest
people of this Stale, to be thus
cheated and tricked out of their
ritiht to make a President? If
not, let them support the Republi
can Candidate, Martin Van Bu

nation that can, under any rea
sonable probability, be elected by
the people. ib.

The election of President.
-Now that our-State elections are
over, and the people have to look
forward to that of President, in
November, we may call upon
them to think and examine for
iheuiselves. The Editor of the
Halttigh Register says he should
consider it unfortunate for the
election of President to go to the
House of Representatives. Eve
ry man in the community who de-
iiies the correct administration of
the Government, will unite in this
patriotic sentiment. Yet the Edi
tor is a supporter of Judge White,
and is violently opposed lo Mr.
Van Buren. We ask then, in
candor, how does he, as a suppor
ter of Judge White, expect to pre
vent the election going to the
House, by voiing for him? Let
this question be answered; not by
mere words, but by naming the
States he is expected to icceive.
He has not an electoral ticket for
med with a view to his support,
except in the States of Virginia,
North Carolina, Georgia, Alaba
ma, Mississippi, Missouri, Louisi
ana, and Arkansas. These States
give but 87 votes, and no candid
man believes Judge White will re
ceive the one-half of them. Who
then is to be voted for? Mr. Web
ster; his support has settled down
in the single State of Massachu
setts, and possibly to that of little
Delaware. Can Gen. Harrison
be elected by the people? Give
him the Stales claimed; Pennsyl-
All the States choose by Gene

State Elections. In Alabama,
the Republicans have the ascen

said, will have a majority of 10

In Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois,
and Indiana, the Republicans have
the ascendancy by decided majorities.
In Kentucky the Whigs suc

Rail Road Aleeting. Dele

of the Western Rail Road, a in
vited to attend a meeting to be
held in Salisbury on the 10th of
October next, to assist the citizens
of Rowan county in their delibe
rations. The West is aroused.
This invitation has been respond
ed to by several counties. Meet
ings have been called, and strong
delegations appointed. No part
of the State is more deeply inter
ested in the determination of this
meeting, tlrfin the counties bor
dering on the Cape Fear, and the
line of the Wilmington and Ra
leigh Rail Road. The result
will decide the question, whether
the productive labor of the richest
portion of the State shall be bro'i
to a market within her own bor
ders, or carried oil" to benefit and
enrich an adjoining State. Our
Western brethren are patriotic,
and wish to act advisedly; they
are disposed to consider the sub
ject in all its bearings; they de
sire information, that they may
come to a safe and intelligent
conclusion. To attain this desi
