Iteynolds have au overwhelming raajoritj over their highest opponents. Uuchanan's majority for President was not quite ten thousand. Jaekson's majority may go to fifteen tbousand over Orr, if it does not exceed that vote, and our im pression is that he will beat the field. Never was a grcater victory aohiovcd, and never has such opposition been mado to any inan - so combined, untiring, and unscrupulous- in this State.
