Pontiac, November llth, 1841. I inclose, for the signal, an official statetient of the Liberty vote in the several towns d this County, politely furnished by a memier of the Board of County Canvassers. I Dut down tbc namo of each town in the County, because it may be convenient to citizens thereof, who take the Signal, for future reference.

Well,ifthe vote of old Oakland is a fair specimen of that of the north generally, a few niore such dem onstrations, and the Liberty party wiUbe prepared to die, as did that of Jackson on his elevation to to the Presidency; andas did the great national Whig party in 1840. I think I should have uo objection to the party undergoing the felicify of sucha polit ical death in 1844: If this be dymg, God speed the death. Respectfnllv,
