M A V O i\ U K O K ii 1 4 TELEGRAPH. GLORIOUS NE WS The Keystone of the Arch is safe. Pennsylvania regenerated aud disenthralled—When in tire year 99, she first broke the federal phalanx by electing Governor McKean, she scattered dismay into tliuir ranks, and gave the lint assurance of the success of die Republican cause. Her victory of the last week is still more deci sive and triumphant. Never has there been a more sig nal defeat. Never lias the democracy obtained a more glorious victory. It has coine upon the Whigs, like the iiaud-tvritiug upon the walls of Belshazzar's Palace. Thu Whigs had tiattered themselves, that the Rank of thesU. States had wound herself so completely a- round the interest 01 the State—that the Anti-Masons uud Whigs had formed so powerful a coalition—that tiie fnuuus of Wolf and .Muhlenburg had become so far alienated If om each other—that the patronage of office holders was *o powerful—that the presence of the Conquering Hero would work such miracles—and that it was -o c.isy to excite a jealousy between Pennsylvania and New fork—that those and other causes would prove irresistible, and that their victory was secure.— How little did they know the spirit of her People!— Thy have risen in all their strength, and burst asun- tier all the coils of the liauk, all the influence of Phila delphia, all the patronage of office, all the attempts £ reduce a jealousy he tween the two great States They ave risen in the majesty of their strength, and exhibi ted ouu of Cue strongest examples, that has ever been given, of the moral courage, with which a free people can subdue every difficulty.—The power of the Rank has even Jailed of it* effect: and that monstrous instr Vition, which was expected to conquer the People now cowering at their feet. We congratulate our republican fellows citizens upon lire glorious triumph 1 All hail, noble Pennsylvania!— lire great Key-stone of the Federal arch. Ju tile days of terror, in '99, Pennsylvania and Vir ginia stood by each other, and supported the same great Republican principles—In 1836, they will do the same. And surely, if Pennsylvania has stood to her principles, in defiance of the powerful institution which u mongrel and a, estate Legislature had quartered u- pon her, we in Virginia, who have no such obstacle to subdue, no such seduction to resist, can pursue the glorious course which Pennsylvania has marked out to us,—Richmond Enq.

PENNSYLVANIA. In the Key Stone Stale, there are, so far, sixteen Van Horen Democrats elected to Congress, and nine Jlai risen Whigs. Of the State Legislature, the Pennsylvanian has the -following-,: Pennsylvania Senate.—Eight members of this body are chosen annually, and it is a .significant sign of the limes to find that oftlie eight this year the friends of Van Rurcu have elected all! Yet the Senate in its outrageous proceedings last winter pretended popular opinion. The same paper remarks: It is a striking commeniaiy on whig tactics, that wherever Harrison lias liccn exhibited hi Pennsylvania —except in this city—his friends have been literally crushed at the late election. For tlio House of Assembly, Seventy-one Van Duren Democrats have been elected, and Id Harrison Whigs, There will probably be two added to the former, and nine to the latter, making a majority in 100 members of FORTY SIX.'! for Van Rukkn. These Gentlemen llhigs,arc the NorthemDemocracy. .Stand aside, and let tlic voice ofthc People be heard. OHIO. TiicIZanesville Aurora thus sums up the general result, us far as ascertained at that central point on the loth instant: Hamilton b.isgiven about-150 majority forthe whole Van Ruren ticket. Rutler 1-100, Knox 600, Coshocton 4-10, Morgan 300 and upwards, Wayne 900, Stark, 4 or500, and many other simlar majorities. On the other baud Clark, Green Champ aigne, Logan, aud many othercouuties, which have uniform ly been aganist us, have gone os usual; though the majorities in a number of them have been reduced. It is now given up by the wiggies here that we will have a majority of from ten to fifteen in the Legislature.— Consequently, SOLITUDE EWING is permitted to retire to solitude, therefore we hove gained our main object. It is possible, we many lore our Governor, but not probable. We have little doubt of the State going for Van Buren iu November. None of the previous acconnts which have been reeievod, make any mention of the state of parties in the Legislature; except that above given. We think it highly probable that Vance is elected by the heavy majorities obtained by him in the congressional dis trict so long represented by him. He has outrun his party strength greatly in that section, hut we do not neiieve however, that Harrison, who is defeated in liii|whnlu d : strict, can caminanp any portion of the democracy, which votes (or Vance from local and per sonal attachment. Wc had calculated on the gain of one member of Congress, but now believe the parties will stand precisely a* they do in the present Con gress.—Olobe. “Am. tiik Dccenct." The attempt made by some oftlie Northern Whigs to mix polities with religion, is pitiful in the extreme. 'The other day itsuited some of these Wiseacres to pro claim to the world that M. Van Buren was .(or is) a Homan Catholic." If he were, we arc at a loss to see how his religious sentiments could weigh a feather ei ther for, or against him—much lens the charge of being rolton.snmo religion, professed hv a Carroll of Car ol" the (now the honored dead) a Taney,or an England, weigh against him.

Sib.—In lookingover the Southern Whig, publish ed in Athens, I find that the Editor in making classi fication of the members elect to the Legislature, has thought preperto designate me a "White'’ man. The object of this note is to correct such an impression, aud to state that I cannot under any circumstance lend my aid, in elevating to office, any individual hostile to the administration, or one who would if elected give ennn- tenunre to measures, in direct opposition to the prin ciples brought into practice, and sustained by Presi dent Jackson. I consider Judge White in the ranks of the opposition, consequently feel myself bound to sacrifice ivliatever prejudices I may entertain in fa vour of a Southern candidate, partici larly, when that candidate lias no claims to my support except such as arise from sectionnl considerations alone. I remain Sir your friend aud obedient servant. CHAPMAN POWELL. From the Federal Union. CORRESPONDENCE WITH MR. FORSYTH. The letter from Mr. Forsyth, which we have been permitted to publish, is of the most conclusive charac ter, and ought to dispel every distrust of Mr Van Bu ren, which may have been felt by any southern man. Several citizens of Baldwin, old acquaintances of Mr- Forsyth, and each of whom owns a large number of slaves, believed that Mr. Forsyth would be able to in form them with certoiuty, whether their estates would be endangered by the election of Mr. Van Buren to the sresidency, or whether the South would have reason to "eel safe under his administration. To their enquiries .Mr. Forsyth gives explicit and satisfactory answers. We have two remarks to make on this testimony. 1st There has been a very close intimacy between Mr. Forsyth and Mr. Van Buren. The feelings, inten tions and plans of Mr. Van Buren nre better known to Mr. Forsyth, we believe, than to any other man. The Secretary of Suite is well acquainted with the subject, in relation to which he testifies. 2d. .Mr. Forsyth is a southern man, aud a gentleman of such firm and elevated diameter, that we may feel assured his opinions are well founded, and his state ments strictly true. Wo believe that no rational and candid man will question the truth of his statements, or reject the opin ions which he lias formed of Mr. Van Burcn’s course in relation to the abolitionists. This letter gives us an assurance in which we may safely rest, that Mr. Van Buren Is a friend of the South; and that when ducted to the Presidency, the measures of his administration will conform to the wishes and interests of the South. As a northern man, his liberal, and enlightened, and pa triotic course on a question which involves the vital in terests of the South, gives us a certain aud glorious pledge of the perpetuity of the Federal Union. this last place a detachment of300 Tennessee Volun teers under Col. Giji proceeded, who returned in the evening with 3 killed and 7 wounded, by a shot from an unseen foe, unable to cross the creek tram the depth of water. MISCELLANEOUS.

FROM TAMPA BAY". The steamer Meridian arrived at this place from Tampa Buy ou Monday last. There had been no fighting in that quarter since our former dates. The deputation of friendly Indians which had been sent out to hold a talk with the hostiles, and induce them to come to term without further fighting, had returned to Tampa, without having been able to effect any thing.—Harjo the head of the) deputation, reports that he limed the Chief of the Seminoles in a hammock within the Withlacoohce Swamp, which was sur rounded on all side by deep morasses, ponds and an almost impracticable underbrushwood, with ashe -cal- cuated, about 3500 of their people, men, women and children.

From the Baltimore American. A correspondent of tae New York^American, under the signature of “A New Englander," presents some valuable and pqrious statistical information as to the mortality among whites and blacks, i slaves and free, deduced from the bills of mortality of the cites of New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore, during the yean 1820, ’21, ’22, ’23, ’24, ’25, and ’26.1 The. following arc his calculations: Annual deaths among whites in New York.

It has been said, by some, that Mr. VAN BUREN is not opposed to the schemes of the abolitionists that his election to tiie presidency will encourage these fanatics to prosecute their notorious attempts; and that under his administration the rights of tiie slave-holding States will not be safe. On this most important subject we arc onx- iuus to obtain the best lights within our reach; aud we believe tbat your official relations to Mr. VAN BUREN, and tlic long continued and very intimate intercourse which wc understand that you have had with him, will enable you to give ns more correct information than we can obtain from any other source. We request tiiat you will state to us, what you believe to be the feelings and intentions of Mr. Van Buren, in relation to the ab olition question; and, if he shall be elected to the pres idency, how far his administration may bc expected to conform to the wishes and interests of the Soul tliis vital subject.

It speaks volumes in ftivor of tiie care bestowed on the slaves by their mas ters, who, it seems, have only half the chance of living which the slaresjhcrnse!;‘es hate, and the mortality among the latter is only one-fourth as great as among thefne. blacks of our own city. Indeed, in the year, 1834, there was but one death tc 102 of tiie slave population in but one in 88.73. The aver- for six years, is as stated a- bove. Again, in the country ofMiddlescx, Y'irginia, calcu lating for a population of 2000, there arc none of the free colored people who have attained the age of ICO and upwards, while of the slaves there are 18.7. In l’rincicss Anne county there are24, and in Orange20, to the same proportion ofstave population. 1 Through out the United States,according to the last census, there are 14. 1 in a population of 20,000 slaves, who Shave reached the age of 100 and! upwards, and-but 1.02 a- mong the same numberof the free. ’ According to the reports of interments for the. city of Baltimore, for tlic years 1831 and 1833, it appears that ‘eight persons at tained the age of 100 and upwards, where of serr.n were colored, whose united ages amounted to 759. It is al so a fact well ascertained, tiiat the slaves in the princi pal slavcholding States double their number in some thing less than28 years,’while it is evident that the free colored population would actually become cxbuct in tiie course of a few years, were their numbers not recruited by constant accession from the slave States.
