I am not very sure about your exact requirement, since the second part of 
your message seems to suggest you want the entries aligned on the right, 
while in the table shone, the first entry is not aligned on the right with  
the rest. Assuming you want 


with equal space on each side of the last entry, here are a couple of 

1.	\begin{tabular}{|r@{}l|}
     	    & 1\\
  	 1  & 2\\
  	 12 & 3\\

2.  	\begin{tabular}{|c|}
I've included vertical lines to see the white space left within the cells.
