"In this district a change has taken place which will give great pleasure and satisfaction to every genuine Federalist thorughout the United States.--The Hon. JOSIAH QUINCY is ELECTED a Representative in Congress, in the room of the Hon. WILLIAM EUSTIS.--On this event the Federalists universally are felicitated.--The Federalists brought into action some of the old zeal and spirit which animated and invigorated them in the proud days of 1788, and at times during the WASHINGTON and ADAMS administration.--They organized their force;--the were faithful to principles; and they have been successful.--They will always be so, when they are in earnest. The hustings in this town were unusually crowded at an early hour;--the meeting was opened with prayer by the Rev. Mr. CHANNING; and at the close of the poll at three o'clock, the subjoined was the result.--Several hundred federal votes were lost by the novel mode of voting, which the Selectmen, to accommodate the democratic party, introduced."
