"The federalists in Andover, supported and abetted by several members of the Essex Junto made great exertions at the late election to displace Dr. Kittredge, as Representative for that town. Mr. John Phillips, son of the late Lieut. Governor, was set up by the federalists, in opposition to Dr. Kitteridge; and happy are we to say, that the result has been highly honorable to the latter gentleman, and is the strongest mark of approbation which the inhabitants of that respectable town could bestow on his past conduct in the Legislature--while at the same time, it evinces their determination to support the only true and correct principles of our Republican government. Doctor Kittredge, the republican candidate, had 187 votes, and Mr. Phillips the federal candidate 157--majority for Dr. K. 30--and not 14 as the Gazette has purposely misstated."
