[1]"The four first candidates were those regularly nominated by the anti-Clintonian county convention of delegates, and are all elected by an average majority of about 966. Fisk is also an anti-Clintonian and has formerly stood very high in the estimation of the people of this county - he was first nominated solely in opposition to Mr. Duer, by his anti-Clintonian friends in Newburgh and was afterwards nominated by a county meeting of all parties. This will account for Mr. Duer's falling below the other candidates with whom he was nominated. It will be recollected that Dr. Seward declined his nomination before the election: White and Blake were the only Clintonians nominated."
