from the fact, lha.t tbe Whig majority is less
than it was last year. It is so in lhe House

and have made impressions on the strongest

ed that the representat ies elected will truly
and faithfully 'shoiejort h the prticipes and

do, the W hig papers say the. coun fry will
be still more disgusted than? before. The
