The young man, who by the way was just 21, and had consequently never voted before, demurred, but his lady love was inexorable, and very justly isisted that notto bs a whig in these times, argued a lack ot intelligence and discernment, want of principle and true patriotism.-Neither deficiency was to be overlooked her, and he need never come and see again, therefore, if he did not vote the risoc ticket. Love and prejudice had a contest, but the former triumphed. The young man voted the entire whig ticket.and Thorpes, the whig candidate, vsras chosen by oae majority. The damsel is surely deserving the thanks, not only of the young man who she thus saved from the sin locofocoism. but of every true republican the stats.--Providence Journal
