We congratulate our readers upon the cheering
-aspect of tlie times. The result of the elections in
Pennsylvania and Ohio places the re-election of
Genl. Jackson beyond all doubt. Indeed, were no
hotter evidence at hand, the lengthened phizzes of
(he Clay men here, would be enough to satisfy us
that they give it up.
ALL HAIL PENNSYLVANIA !
The official returns of the Pennsylvania election
give Governor Wolf a m ijority of 3,597 votes. Fif
teen Jackson men, Four .4 wfi-masons, and Nine
calks) Mr. it-Jackson are elected to Congress.
The Jackson party will have a decided majority in
the Legislature, and will therefore secure the election
of a Republican Senator. Pennsylvania is sound to
The Clay Flag struck in Pcnnsjrl-
- " vania J . r-; :
By the Harrisburg Reporter of the 19th we learn
that the Clay flag has been struck and the standard of
Mr. Wirtand the Anti-Masons reared in itsstead. This
is gratifying intelligence, as it seals the fate of Clay
ism. All hope of h is election is therefore abandoned.
jThe subjoined extract is referred to for a confirma
tion of this news. Now that the Coalition in Penn
sylvania have abandoned Mr. Clay, had not his friends
here better follow their example? j
" On Monday last, the Clay convention re-atsscm-bled
at this place. About 100 members were in at
tendance. Thev organized by appointing Joseph
Lawrence, President; Gabriel Hiester and Daniel
W. Coxe, Vice Presidents; and Joseph G. Clarkson
and John Dick, Secretaries. A committee was ap
pointed for the purpose, who reported resolutions, !
withdrawing the Clay and Sergeant electoral ticket,
and pledging themselves to support the anti-masonic
ticket, whichVwcre adopted, . with but few dissenting
voices. Many of the members of the convention, evi
dently entered iuto this measure with great reluctance.
One gentleman on the floor of the convention, staled,
shat he detested any thing like a connexion with so
polluted a thing as anti-masonry! Another gen
tleman stated in his place, that he viewed the pro
ceedings as the requiem of national republicanism in
Pennsylvania. The convention adjourned on Tues
day, at neon.
Preparations are making in Pennsylvania to bring
out the entire Jackson strength of that State. The
different members of the party, divided" by local dis
putes, are now rallying to maintain a 6ause on which
they have no disagreement. The following letter
shows the spirit which animates the partv.
" Harriseurg, Oct. 16, 1832.
Dear Sir Already are the democracy of the state
preparing for the coming fight- On Saturday even
ing a meeting of the friends of Jackson was assembled
on a notice of a few hours. It was the largest politi
cal meeting ever held in this town. Friends of Wolf
and supporters of Ritner met without regard to the
feeling engendered by the election that had just pas
sed, determined for union on the Presidential election.
Tl;e cry is now, Jackson and democracy against the
Bank and aristocracy, and there can be no doubt of
Jackson's success in Pennsylvania by forty-thousand.
You may rely with the utmost confidence in this as
sertion. The Presidential and Gubernatorial ques
tions will be decided on entirely distinct principles.
The reader is referred to our second page for the
reply of Mr. Van Buren to the Shoeco Committee,
in relation to his views upon the United States Bank
Internal Improvement, Nullification and the Tariff.
Upon the three first subjects, . he is every T thing
that the South could desire him to be, and his views
with regard to the Tariff, although not agreeing with
those entertained by many in this part of the Union,
are such, however, that little or no exception can be
taken to them. Mr. Van Buren thinks that a protec
tive Tariff is constitutional, but concurs entirely in
the views expressed by President Jackson in his last
message, in which he recommends "a modification of
the Tariff, which should produce a reduction of the
revenue to the wants of the government, and an ad
justment of the duty upon imports, with a view 1.o
eqatal justice in regard to all our nationalinterests,
and to the counteraction of foreign policy, so far as it
may be injurious to those interests." For "such a mo
dification, the South will look with confidence to the
next administration, and under the guidance of An
drew Jackson and Martin Van Buren, she will not
look in vain. We are gratified at the explicit avow
al by Mr. Van Buren of his sentiments upon these
important subjects, as it will silence the insinuations
of his opponents that he wrould avoid any expression
of his opinions until the elections were over. What

THE VETO TRIUMPHANT!
The Etiamy prostrated All Hall! 7
The Central Correspon ling Committee of the
State have the satisfaction to present their distant
friends with the following results of our late election.
By the list annexed, it will be seen that the Demo
cratic party of Ohio have achieved a proud and un
precedented victory over the most unholy of all com
binations that ever banded toge ther for political pur
poses. Lucas' majority for Governor over the confi-
bmatkrti candidate, Lyman, is estimated to be from 8 j
to 10,000. Making every allowance, it can cer-
tai.ily be.no less than 5,000. u Bank or no Bank,"
the honest DeaiocraUofOhio marched up to the. polls,
.mid the triumph they have achieved is the reward of
their fiuelity and firmness.
We have a majority of the members elected to
Congress, and it:ust have a most decided majority in
the Legislature of from 8 to 10. Stanbery, the no
torious Slanberv, is put own, and DUNCAN Mc-

Signs of Defeat. The irascible tone of the
Clay papers speaks too plainty for deception, the utter
annihilation of their hopes. Instead of reconciling
them to their fate, the certain verdict of the People
has called forth very unbecoming expressions of an
ger from the conductors dT the opposition pess.
The billingsgate language vith which their cblumns
have recently abounded, detraAs from the character
they have assumed of being the only respectable por
tion of society ; and their indiscriminate abuse of the
supporters of Genl. Jackson betrays not only the
weakness of their cause, but some of the bad passions
of the sheart.
FLASHING IN THE PAN.
The subjoined article shows the confidence that is
felt by the Clay men in New York about the votes
of that State and Pennsylvania. Webb has been
fairly hacked out, and his want of confidence is a
certain indication that he regards the triumph of
Jackson a3 beyond question. But this sentiment is
not peculiar to the New Yorkers. The more candid
of the party here, frankly confess that Jackson's elec
tion is certain.
From the New York Standard.
The Bets. The Courier, while in the very
act yesterday of confessing that the Democra
tic candidate had been elected Governor of
Pennsylvania, offered in the true spirit of bra
vado, two bets of $500 each one that the chic
toral vote of Pennsylvania, and one that that
of New York would not be given to Andrew
Jackson. If the proposition had been treated
with the neglect and contempt it merited, the
apostate would have bragged in his paper to
day, that the friends of the President were
afraid to bet on his prospects ; and it was better
to bring him to the test and lc him back out.
A friend of ours cut out the paragraph contain
ing the offer to bet, took a 81000 in his hand,
and went down to Webb, and stated his readi
ness to make the wager on the terms stated in
the Courier. Webb appointed 1 o'clock, as
the time for closing the bet, not being ready
on the instant. At the hour fixed, our friend
went to the place with but light hope howev
er of obtaining the bet and the, event justified
his estimate of the apostate's good faith. Webb
refused to stand by his proffer, .unless a condi
tion was added, to the effect, that the monev
should be his in case of General Jackson'' s
death. His paltry conduct excited less indigna
tion a id contempt than it- would, had it not
been in some measure expected.
gress in his place.
The young the vigorous,-the growinw west
is coming forth in its giant strength to the sup
port of Jackson and "correct principles. Our
course is onward, and a glorious triumph awaits
us. A most unholy and heterogeneous com
bination has been formed to defeat the re-election
of President Jackson; the Bank of the
United States put forth its strength, and pour
ed out its money to "secure the success of the
project, but the'people are found to be too pure
to be influenced by the bribes of the Bank, and
too intelligent to be deceived by the fabrications
of their own and the President's enemies. They
have discovered the designs of the advocates
of the Bank who have coalesced for the purpose
of putting down the President, and have nut
forth their strong arm to defeat their efforts.

She has, in her late glorious gain and tri

with new laurels, and earned nobly the thanks
of every lover of principle.
Her course is always onward, when danger
threatens, and her reward shall be the first and
foremost rank the van in the soul-stirring
struggle for the declaration of our liberties, and
after another victory, the adrpiration and gra
titude of the friends of democracy and Jackson,
throughout our beloved Union.
From the Baltimore Republican.
An election was held in this City yesterday
for the choice of Mayor, and Members of the
City Council, the returns-of which we lay be
fore our readers, from which it will be seen
that' Mr. HUNT, the Jackson Candidate for
Mayor, has been elected by the triumphant ma
jority of 1737. We have elected also 16 mem
bers of the First Branch of Council, and 6 of
the Second Branch. Even the Seventh
Ward which has always before given a large
majority against us, has returned a Jackson
man in the place of the Editor of the Patriot.
Ihis is a triumph of which the friends ol the
administration have reason to be proud, and
proves the determination of the people of Bal
timore to stand by the Hero of New Orleans,
and resist the efforts and the intrigues ol his
enemies, the United States Bank, and its myr
midons, and the Anti-Jackson men of every
form and complexion, whatever name they may
choose to assume. The people of Baltimore
are firm to their purpose; and are not to be mo
ved by flattery or frowns, by bribery or by force,
and in November they will march forth with
the name of Jackson upon their banner, and
give a triumphant majority for the man of the
people, the defender of their rights, who has
done so much for the honor and prosperity of
the country. "
