"The Election of last Monday resulted as follows: . . . It is necessary to observe, that this result is far from exhibiting the relative strength of parties in this county. The nomination of Messrs. Page, Smith and Milton was made but a few days previous to the election, and was done to unite the few federal votes which were expected to be given, rather than from the prospect of success. We venture the assertion, that not half the federalist in the county were apprized that a poll would be opened for the gentleman mentioned, and consequently did not attend the polls."

National Advocate (New York, NY) lists 368 votes for Jared Williams and 363 for Archibald Magill.
