For instance, we read this morning in the- Philadel phia correspondence of the Tribune, the following reflections : 'You correctly say in the Tribune, that the success of Shuiik. in this State, by the paltry ma jority of three or lour thousand votes, is no cri terion by which to judge of the result of the Pre sidential election. My calculation is, and I have seldom failed in similar calculations, that Penn sylvania would be safe for Clay, should Shunk carry it by 10,0(10 ; and now, since his majority is not over ("that number, 1 deem the State as safe for Clay as if the election had already been held, and his success declared.
