Our. County Ticket
The ticket placed in nomination by the
Democratic Delegate Convention will be found
at our mast head. One half, at least, of the
gentlemen who compose it, were placed in
nomination without, arid in fact, against their
consent ; hence some of them may decline,
and render it necessary - for the Convention to
re-assemble. Until we are assured that the
ticket will remain as it is, or the vacancies
which may occur arc filled, we shall refrain
from speaking of the candidates as their
known steadfastness to Democratic principles,
their high moral characters, private worth,
and qualifications, deserve. Better men, and
more deserving Democrats, could not have
been placed upon the ticket.. But there are
others equally as well qualified, as high in
moral character, and as deserving. ..1.11 could
not be honored with a nomination. In the
meantime it is understood that the
CRATIC TICKET cannot, by any combination of
circumstances, be defeated. The people have
willed its election. Victory must come
The Democratic Rally
The meeting at the Court House on Wed
nesday evening last was a grand rally of the
Democracy. It numbered at least as many
as were at both the opposition meetings on
the night previous. The Speakers—Camp
bell, Scott, Ashman, Wilson and Colon—were
more than equals for an army of Gov. Fords!

Y(9...The following resolution was adopted
by the New 'York Whig State Convention on
the 14th inst:
Resolved, That we will oppose, to the ut
most, estent of our ability, the election of Mr.

fied with it in every respect. Just step in

Absurd as the notions and principles of
government are, by which the Black Repub
licans hope to establish themselves in power,
they find numbers ready to adopt them, be
cause many are liable to be deceived, ready.
to be tempted, and prone to be corrupted.—
New systems of law and policy are not only
received, but zealously propogatcd. Some
men aro heated by opposition, and others ed
ucated in prejudice. The plainest rights of
the people are called in question, while the
least justifiable pretensions of a dangerous
faction are sought to be established as true
axioms of government, consistent with the
principles of the Constitution. Even the
pit is made subservient to their dark designs.
By affirming and denying boldly, and by in
sisting peremptorily, the Pack Republicans
have brought many things to be received as
certain, which have never been proved, and
many others td be looked upon as problemat
ical, which have been often demonstrated.—
Thus have divisions been created among the
people, which may yet eventuate in the des
truction of our liberties. Disputes upon a
subject which is sacredly guarded by the
Constitution, threatens to unsheath all the
swords of the Nation. Abolitionism, from its
very innate malignancy, is calculated to make
the most deadly wounds upon the body politic,
and when once made, the poison will fester in
the sores and render them mortal. This fanati
cism, if successful at the approaching elec
tion, would use tricks of government, in vio
lation of the Constitution, that would conjure
up a storm that would sweep our Union from
her moorings, and perhaps overwhelm both
fanatics and people alike. The prejudices
of its leaders, confirmed by habit, fortified
by flattery from, the pulpit, and provoked by
opposition, would induce them, if in power,
to commence an invasion of the rights of the
Southern" States, whilst they perhaps only
imagined that they were defending their own.
A fanaticism which seems to have tainted
the whole Northern portion of the Nation,
and given life and strength to factions, is a
dangerous thing . to give the least encourage
a .~~'. ~C'+T
If Abolitionism, with the whole moral
sense of the Nation against it, backed by the
great weight of the Constitution, has been
able to maintain so long and obstinate a re
sistance to both these powerful agents, by the
mere inveteracy of its own fanaticism, how
long would it be, if entrusted with the pow
er of government, before the very spirit of
liberty itself would be extinguished ? An
appeal to the sword would be a necessary
consequence, as the Constitution being des
-troyecl, no other arbiter would be left. To
reconcile the deadly feuds that an Abolition
triumph would engender, by treaty, Would
be impracticable, when neither side would
trust the other, and to terminate them by the
sword, would only be fighting fur the man
ner of destroying our Union, and not for pre
serving it. - If we were not eventually to fall
under absolute monarchy, we would at least
fall into absolute anarchy. Is it worth while
to allow a motley race-of precise knaves and
enthusiastic mad men to ruin the fair fabric
of our government, merely to gratify a mor
bid sympathy for a race that is most benefit
ted by their present dependence upon those
who scrupulously protect the health, morals
and dearest interests of their servants ? It
is idle to attempt to persuade men who feel
that the balance of property is largely on
their side, and that they are entitled to a share
of power under the Constitution;in their own
hands, that they have no right, or a very pre
carious one, to the protection of that Consti
tution. Hitherto, our country has been gov
erned mainly by the ties of affection and con
fidence. The Abolitionists would govern
without the concurrence of the whole Nation,
and in defiance of constitutional requirements.
The very chimera they follow is both wicked
and stupid. They never reflect that power
is in the nature of a spring, that by much
straining will certainly relax, and often break.
In the one case, it becomes of little use, and
in the other of none at all. It is better, there
fore, that constitutional powers only should
be exercised, either to cure a supposed evil,
or promote a positive good. We have lived,
thus far, as a Nation in harmony, and the
people of every clime have enjoyed the bene
fits of our institutions. Let us not rudely
destroy that which gives us the greatest secu
rity and happiness, by supporting the-fanat
icism of Abolition,

SEE.—Senator Jones, of Tennessee, delivered
a magnificent speech in the U. S. Senate on
Saturday. Without surrendering any of his
Whig principles, he deelared his purpose to
support the Democratic nominees for Presi
dent and Vice President, He takes this po
sition as the only sure means of averting the
dangers which now 'threaten the Union from
sectionalism. Ile examined at length the
several platforpis and - the candidates of the
three parties, and showed conclusively that
the true position of an old-line 'Whig in the
present contest is with the Democratic party.
Mr. Jones made a triumphant %indication of
Mr. Buchanan from the charge of having
done injustice to Mr. Clay in regard to the
charge of bargain and *corruption. The
Washington Union says : "His speech was
listened to by the Senate and a crowded gal
lery with marked interest, and is destined to
exert a powerful influence on the public mind."

The Vote for President—The Tribune's
The New York Tribune having finished
its political
.summary in the States and the
prospects therein as regards their Presiden
tial vote, foots it up as follows:
Maine, S Virginia, 15
N. Hampshire, 5 N. Carolina, 10
Massachusetts, 13 S. Carolina, 8
Rhode Island, 4 Georgia, 10
Connecticut, 6 Alabama, 9
Vermont, 5 Mississippi, "7

Ohio, 23 Texas, 4
6 Arkansas, 4
Wisconsin, 5 Tennessee, 12

lowa, 4

Total, 129
New, the Keystone contends, Mr. Buchanan
will carry every State set down in the "very
doubtful" column of the Tribune, which will
increase his electeral vote to 141. This, with
Kentucky—which the Tribune wrongly gives
to Fillinore, butwhich is certain for Buchanan
by a large majority—elects that gentleman
We say nothing about Maryland and Lou
isiana—given to Fillmore—or of lowa, Cali
fornia., Wisconsin, Illinois and Connecticut,
which the Tribune marks down for Fremont,
but which will go all of - them. for Buchanan
and Breckinridge. Neither is it necessary
to mention Maine, New Hampshire, New
.Ohio and Michigan; in all of which our
friends are sanguine and confident. It is
very evident, from the Tribune's calculation,
that that usually sanguine journal has no
confidence whatever .in Fremont's success,
and that it is throwing out its feelers for the
purpose of preventing any of its friends from
hazarding their pecuniary means upon the
result. When Greeley cannot make any more
favorable figures for his candidate than those
above, it is evident that ho is destined to a
bad defeat.
Good Notion of Jimmy Buck
After Gen. Harrison had been nominated
by the Whigs in 1840, Senator Buchanan, of
Pa., thus spoke of his preference over Mr.
Clay, before a Pennsylvania Locofoco Con
"The Whig party had in Mr. Clay, a can
didate of whom they might justly be proud—
a man of bold. and fearless heart—a man of
bold and commanding eloquence, and a man
of distinguished ability. Although opposed
to his political principles, yet I have ever felt
for him the highest regard."
The Sciota (Ohio) Gazette (an opposition
paper) of August 29th, 1844, contained the
above. We give it as one of the many evi
dences of the friendly relations which sub
sisted between those two great statesmen,
Buell - ANA - 1v and CLAY. Does this not give
the lie to the allegation of the opposition that
Mr. B. was• the vindictive slanderer of Mr.
C. ? The mongrels will have to manufacture
some more plausible falsehoods to.obtain the
votes of sane men.

Intense Excitement at Yreka,
[From the Sacramento Union.]
Mr. R. C. Gridley, yesterday, received a
letter from a gentleman in Yreka, written on
the sth of July, in which an account is giv
en of an affair scarcely second, in point of the
excitement created, to the startling events in
San Francisco. Mr. Gridley also had a con
versation with Mr. Correll, late of the firm of
Correll & Heath, merchants of that place,
who yesterday passed through this city for
Stockton, and from these sources we obtain
the following particulars of the excitement
On the Fourth of July, there were a great
many miners in Yreka, and one of them,
named J. Blunt, committed sonic offence,
when Deputy-Sheriff Millhouse attempted to
arrest him. Blunt offered, at first, no resis
tance, but the crowd of miners around him
urged upon him not to submit to the arrest,
as it was a d----d little offence, and on the
Fourth of July, should. not be noticed. An
altercation of words followed, and the Depu
ty-Sheriff; adhering to his determination, fi
nally struck Blunt, and knocked him down
and stamped upon his body. When he arose
to his feet he advanced towards Millhouse,
urged on by the crowd, and as he was ap
proaching, Millhouse drew his pistol and fired
at him, the ball striking him in the socket of
the throat and killing him instantly.
IVlillhouse was then hurried off to the jail
and secured there by the Sheriff and his pos
se; and in a very short time the jail was com
pletely surrounded by miners, while the force
of the Sheriff inside *as constantly augmen
ted by citizens summoned by the Sheriff,for
the protection of the prisoner. Meanwhile
the news spread over the country, and the
miners continued to flock into town from all
quarters. The deceased was from Greenhorn,
and a great many immediately left for Yreka.
-They also came in from Deadwood, a distance
of twelve miles ; from Indian Creek, fifteen
miles, and from Hamburg, about eight miles
distant. This was on Saturday, the sth,
By this time there were about 400 miners
around the jail, which was defended by apos
se of 100 on the inside, fully armed. The
arms used by the Sheriff were sent for and
obtained from Fort Jones, a distance of about
19 miles, where . there is a detachment of Uni
ted States troops. The guns and ammuni
tion were obtained during the night of the
After the occurrence—whether op. the 4th
or sth, we arc unable :to state-,-an extra was
issued from the office of the Yreka, Union,
giving an account of the affair, to which the
miners took exception, and becoming incen
sed, as Mr. Correll states, appointed a depu
tation from their number-to wait on Mr. Geo.
Freaner, the editor, and demand a retraction:
or contradiction of the article. The deputa
tion accordingly called upon him and made
the demand, when Mr. Freaner stated that if
they would convince him that lie was wrong•
in any particular, he would do so, butif they
could not convince him of his error, he would
adhere to his position. The deputation of
miners then stated to Mr. Freanor that they

draw the language he had used, and if ho
failed to do it at the expiration of that time,
they would introduce him to a coat of tar and
feathers. Mr. Corral' left on Sunday morn
ing, and consequently did not know what af
terwards took place. •
_. Before leaving, the excitement had reached
a high pitch, and the miners expressed their
determination to take the prisoner at all haz
ards, and that if they could not otherwise suc
ceed, they would burn the town.
In addition to the above, we have r a tele
graph dispatch from Sacramento, which says:
"An extra of the Fi-aca Union, of Sunday,
gives a statement of the killing, which makes
the deceased the aggressor. On Sunday, it
says, but few miners were in town, and there
was very , little excitement. It was rumored
that if the Deputy Sheriff is acquitted, an
effort will be made to ham. , him. There is
nothing about what happened after the extra
was received.
News from Oregon.
Advices from Oregon are received to the

The Indians have destroyed property to the
amount of $125,000 on Gold Beach, at the

DALLES, Sunday, July 0, 1850.
Major Layton, commanding the Oregon
Volunteers, left this post on the 25th ult., in
tending to go and see some Indians that were
reported to be in the vicinity of John Day's
river. He took with him only seventy-five
men, rank and file. An express c:rrived yes
terday, from his command stating that he had
found a large band of hostile Indians, num
bering 400 or 500. He states in his des
patch that his little command' "is in a tight
place;" and he desires more volunteers, and
sends a requisition for more powder and lead.
He says he is 135 miles from this post,, and
within 40 miles of liamiakin's whole army . .
Col. ShaT, with a command of about 200
mounted volunteers, belonging to Washing
ton Territory, arrived at WallalValla on or
near the 20th of June, having made the pas
sage of the Cascade Mountains through the
Naches Pass. He encountered no force of
Indians on the route. Two Indian guides
made their escape from him while in the
mountains. An expressman who came down
from his camp on the 4th, reports having seen
a party of apparently hostile Indians a little
below the mouth of the Umatilla. They were
in possession of some horses and cattle.

McGowan at Santa Barbara
[From the Alta California, July 21.]
By a gentleman who arrived yesterday
from Santa Barbara, we bare been told all
about the attempted capture of Edward Mc-
It appears that on Sunday morning, the
6th inst., a stranger appeared in the town of
Santa Barbara, and was seen talking for a
long time with Mr. Packard, a person well
known in this city. At length the two were
passed by Mr. Blake, who at once recognized
in the stranger none other than the notorious
McGowan. A short . time "afterwards Ned
went to the hotel and approached Maj. Bache,
of the coast survey, who was eatin ,, at the
table. The Major immediately knewthevis
itor, and McGowan smiled as le neared Mr.
Bache's seat, and withdrew.
By this time everybody had heard that the
runaway was in the place, and application
was made to the Sheriff that he might be ar
rested. But while this alder was satisfying
himself that there really was an indictment
against McGowan for murder in San Fran
cisco, Ned's friends became alarmed and run
him off to the fastnesses of a swamp. The
Sheriff collected a posse and started in pur
suit; but it being near night, it was not pos
sible to enter the swamp to make search with
any prospect of success ; so he spread his
posse around and set fire to the tubes, but
they being scarcely ripe enough to burn well,
made a big smoke that "fizzled out." Mean
while the darkness approached and the search
was given over.
It was now ascertained that the fugitive
had been accompanied to the place by two
men, one a Californian, and the other an
American, named "Jim Dennison," who had
acted as guides either from the Mission of
San Jose or Dolores. Dennison, who is a
butcher, and has a ranch at Half Moon Day,
stated that he was on his way to San Diego
to buy horses for the Governor (?) The two
were arrested, and were being examined
amidst great excitement, as our inibrmant
left; and about twenty Californians were
started to scour the country for the so long
invisible Nedp
Is it possible that the scamp has been out
here this while, or at the Mission of Dolores,
and read and heard all that has been said
about him? The three were, according to
Dennison's own statement, five days in search
ing Santa Barbara, and McGowan was so
much wearied by the journey that they were
forced to stop for a time at'a ranch, twenty
five miles north of Santa Barbara, to recruit
muscle. After McGowan had escaped, and
everybody was on the look out for him, a fel
low n'uned Parkison, an ex-lighthouse keep
er, went to the ranch of Pablo de la Guerra,
State Senator for Santa Barbara, and reques
ted him to secrete and protect his friend
"Mac," but Pablo indignantly refused to do
any such thing.
It is the general impression that the fugi
tive will be arrested, though his friends—
they are not - very many, however—will do all
in their power to aid his escape.
Look at the Figures.
Senator Bigler, in his recent speech at
Trenton, aver ridiculing the idea that any
man could regard Col. Fremont as fit and
worthy of the Presidential chair, and pre
senting in a forcible manner the dangerous
tendency of sectional parties, and proving
that Col. F., if elected, must bp a sectional
President, said
"That the experiment would be the more
hazardous because Col. Fremont, if his elec
tion were possible, would not have the sanc
tion of the mass of electors; that at the last
presidential election 3,147,000 votes were
cast, President Pierce .receiving 1,506,000,
Gen. Scott 1,393,000, and J. P. Hale 158,000.
The aggregate at the
_next election may be
safely estimated at 3,600,000, and, according
to his calculation, Col. Fremont could not re
ceive more than one million ; the estimates
he had seen of his friends would not give
him more than 1,150,000, leaving 2,450,000
votes against him, and placing him in a thi
nority of I,3oo,ooo—being 150,000 more
votes than the whole number cast in his fa.
vor II ! In fifteen out of the thirty-one States,
he will not receive 15,000 ; if he receives a
single vote in the remaining sixteen States,
lie will not have a majority in more than four
or five, and in ,the others his friends only
claim a plurality. We have, then, a stirring
contest for the Presidency between Mr. Bu
chanan and Col. Fremont, and yet there is
not a candid man in the opposition who will
not admit that Mr. B.' is certain.of a majori
ty of not less than 800,000 of the popular
vote. No wonder the republicans despise
the doctrine of popular sovereignty. They
have determined to defy it at the election.—
As for the Keystone, he said. Mr. Buchanan
could easily defeat the united opposition, and
that, divided as they now are, Col. Fremont
had not a ghost of a chance for the State."
These remarks of Senator Bigler furnish a
conclusive refutation of the idle stories cir
culated as to his entertaining doubts of the
triumphant success of the democracy in Penn
sylvania. There is no friend of Mr. Buchan
an laboring more zealously and efficiently
than Mr. Bigler, and none who has better
knowledge of the prospects in his State, and
none more confident of his success in Penn
sylvania and in the Union.
MAL, The following which we take from the
New York Democrat is excellent:—

the Know Nothings, is not the least clarions
fact in the curious history of that flinny par

them has been that of purcation. They
have been purifying themselves. Heaven
knows they needed it! First the National

—divided into two, a Northern and a South

that is to say arithmetically twice two make
one, or half of one unit is two units—just as
you please. That was the first day of puri

men. Then the Fillmore men met and puri

Stockton men met and purified out the Fill

And then the Fremont men met and purified
out the whole of them, except the Israelite

the tops of the highest mountains for forty

and a grizley Bar. Whar's the tarnal fool
who dares to say that the Know-Nothing par

We have already alluded to the rumor,
that the Ministers of England had advised
the Spanish Government to sell Cuba to the
United States. The story is repeated, and
with an air of probability, by the intelligent
Washington correspondent of the Baltimore
Sun. In a recent letter, he makes this state,
Movements of the highest importance in

out of the assumed designs of Napoleon la

If Napoleon succeeds in his intrigues, he
will ext43nd his empire over both Spain - and

The British Government have represented
to the late Government of Espartero, and the

the United States by removing every possible

The foregoing is highly important, if true,
and it is confirmed to some extent by the

It is quite certain that the. policy of the Em

that he seeks in fact to become the protector,
