F l 'R CANAL comanssinNEß,
The Election.
We most hea;tily congratulate our democratic friends
upon the favorable aspect presented in our political af
fairs Ihis fall. At no period within our recollection, hiss
the party in Bradford been more happily and harmimi
ously united. Never was a ticket selected which gave
more general and entire sati,fartion. We base not
heard the first note of discord. We hose )et to listen to
the first democrat, who deco not yield cheerful and
cordial assent to the nominations made by the Coun
ty Convention. This is as it should be, and affords the
highest possible guarantee of our triumphant success.
The ticket is eminently a good one, in all its parts.
There is no man upon•it, whose political fidelity has not
been attested, by active_and'zealous etlorts in support of
Republican principles, in seasons and under circumstan
ces, that tried the steadfastness of mew faith. With
each men as our candidates, no one need hesitate in their
support. through fear of sustaining on enemy under 'the
disguise of a friend. The campaigns of IS:38-40-II,
were as the crucible of fire, to separate the dross from
the pure metal. Every man upon our ticker, within the
circle of his influence, and the sphere of his action, exci
ted all his energies to sustain our principles, in these la
ter and most trying struggles oldie party.
Well may we place our confidence in such men.
Those who clung to the Republican banner in the dark
hour of defeat, and gallantly aided in raising it front the
Lot, to the high elevation of triumphant and glorious
success, are not of the clay of which traitors ,are made.
We again pronotince the ticket unqualifiedly a good
one; -combining a high order of talent and business capa
city with political integrity above suspicion or reproach.
All that is required to insure success is a reasonable de
gree of activity, on the part of our friends. No demo
crat should be absent from the polls, flattering himself
that his friends are strong enough without his aid. Such
security. open !did. Such strength is ter di-At:At
2Ve appeal then earnestly to every democrat to be as
vigilant as he is turn, in the support of the principles of
his party, and of the men who will sustain them. Let
no whining bet4gingsyeophant for votes, from the ranks
of ycur enemies, seduce you from the support of a ticket
formed under the usages of yogi party, and pledged to
the maintainance of its principles.
Ron tlEllS.—We understand that Miller Fox, of this
place fell a victim to the cunning schemes of the light
fingered gentry in New York one day last week. It
seems that Mr. Fox arrived in the city at a late hour
and went directly on his arrival to Dunning's,Hotel.
On retiring to his bed he locked his door and placed his
pocket hook, counting his money, $575, under his pillow.
Being much fatigued and feeling secure he slept soundly
while some'adroit rascal unlocked the dour, although the
key on the inside of the door was inithe lock, and alo•
!graded the entire contents of the pocket book, without
notice to its owner, and so Carefully that he had not the
slightest intimation of any intrusion until die discovered
his less in the morning.
The door key Lore marks of the iri.trument which had
been iuserkd in the luck, fur the purpose of turning it,
and would seem to imply that lucks are no security
ugainit the visits of the rogue, even with the key within.
Mr. Fox's watch was lett, fortunately, the' it had been
laid on the floor, by the unwelcome viAtur, who bad
wound the chain around
_l c he stem of the watch, and
nndoubtedly, had left through fear of detection ; the
watch being a very valuable one; and • easily" and cer
tainly described.

A reward of $3OO is offercd . for the detection of the ras.
cult The Gazette thus speaks of it : '
Last Sunday evening:about ten o'clock it fire broke out
in en old Wooden building unoccupied, situated on Main

Esq. The building we uuderstatal lehined to Mr.
Cluaens l'umer.u.r and was used by him fur the pur
pose of stowing lumber, of which there was a considera
ble quantity in the house, all of which was burned. This
fare was undoubtedly the wink of an incendiary or incen•

neck's raper, and vitae was convicted and sentenced of
the last term of the circuit court held here, to right year's
itnprisonment in the Auburn States' prison, we under

the lire on Sunday evening was the work of some of
them, we think is equally clear. The same night of the

shut on Monday morning, for the pupose of concealing
the fare until it should fairly communicate with the in

of the door undoubtedly saved the village from a most
destructive e.l.llsgration, as it prevented the atmosphere
from communicating With the fire within, and conse
quently the diabolical design to fire the tow n was, we
believe frustrated. 'On the same night an cut-building
belonging to C. P. Avettr, Esq., was attempted to be

perior to anything of the kind we have ever before seen.
one of the greatest, and we might bay principle objec
tions to the use of the pump is the disagreeable llavor
imparted to the water by the wooden pipes generally
used. This is entirely obviated in the kind of which we
are speaking, as the pipe is of lead from the water upwards
to within about four feet of the surface. If any body
wants a pomp in their well let them try Mr.lllrockartay.

of a letter from New York, dated Tuesday 9th inst., in
the Ledger.
"The recent change in the Presidency . and Direction of
the New York and ErieLiailroad, has given quite an im
pulse to the subscription for $3,000,000, required by the
law of the last Legislature, granting the use of the credit
of the State for that amount as soon as a corresponding
sum is subscribed for. Yesterday the stibscription had
run up to one half of the required sum, and today tho
officers and friends of the Road are busily engaged in
getting accessions to the list. The effect ofthese bright

this morning."

time the assault and battery was commuted.
Some testimony was introduced on the part
of the defendants, going to show that the New
York party-threw out some harsh and impro•
per epithets, calculated to provoke and irritate
their opponents, and thus lead to a breach of
the public peace. They also undertook to
show, that the affray took place between the
prosecutor and Austin Ellsworth., and that
These defendants were not engaged in it.
'lire Court charged the jury, that, although
it was very improper fur these men to attend
at the polls of a neighboring State on the day
of holding election, yet. that the fact of their
being there, would not justify the committing

The defendants were indicted for writing

songs, designed to injure the reputation of
Robert Mason, expose him to ridicule, and
bring lion into reproach among the citizens of
the community genenAv•
His name was rmvoirectly mentioned in the
eungs, but alleged to be meant by the words,

The songs were sung some time in Februa

elections in this county.
In defence, it was insisted t h at there was
another man in Armenia, to whom the term
Bob" would apply, and that the songs might
be construed to mean him, as well as Robert
It was contended on the part of the defen
dants, that, as it was the practice during the
last Presidential Campaign to compose and
sing stings about various individuals, Mr. Ma

in dispute was ailed. \ Before the execution
of this deed. Asa Gillet obtained a l judgment
against John Campbell, which was subsequent
ly assigned to John C. Campbell; and in this
issue, John C. Campbell in the first place,
claimed a sufficient amount to satisfy the Gillet
judgment; and in the second place, all the
nioucy except what is sufficient to pay the

John L. Webb alleged that the Gillet judg
ment had been satisfied ; that he li'3s the own
er of judgmenti against John Campbell and
Stephen Stiles, which were lietis before the
date of said deed, and also judgments entered
since the date of said deed ; and that the deed
from John Campbell to John C. Campbell is

the owner of ao undividek.half of the land 111
question on the fourth of September 1841:. and
that this interest continued until therlime 01
the Sheritrs sale in 1845.
'The testimony on the part of the defendant
was, that this deed was executed for the pur
pose of keeping off creditors, and that in truth
there was no consideration for it. The plain
tiff introduced some testimony, however, that
there was money paid as a consideration, &c.

the facts in the ease u ill be given.
Besley, Morley and Ily de vs. Job P. Kirby.
This was an action to recover for tnerchandize
sold to the defendant by the plailitiffs. The
account was admitted, and the only dispuie
was, in reference to some state scrip sent by
Mr. Kirby to the plaintiffs, with instmentros
to his agent not to pay it over unless taken at
tar. The plaintiffs, however, were importu
nate to have the scrip, which was accordingly
paid over to them, and they disposed of it in
market for less than par ; and in the present
suit, claimed to be allowed the discount they
paid. The Court charged the jury, that they
ought to allow the whole arnolint of the scrip,
and judgment was taken by consent, for the
plaintiff, the amount to be ascertained by the
James Martin vs. Christopher L. Ward and
Byron Kingsbury. In this case the plaintiff
claimed that CM the sale and delivery of filly
three thousand one hundred and eighty-six feel
of lumber, he paid the defendants one thou
sand dollars. and that in consideration of this
payment, the defendants agreed to deliver to
the plaintiff by the first reasonable rafting
freshet after the first day of April, 1E342, a fair
lot of culling, boards at the rate of ten dollars
per thousand.
This action was brought to recover damages
for the nun-performance of this contract.
The defendants contended that they did de
liver more than enough to satisfy the terms of
the contract.
The jury found for the defendants.
Daniel Kieffe vs. James Nestor. This was
an action of account-render, brought by the
plaintiff to recover of the defendant his share
of the profits of an alleged partnership between
the plaintiff and defendant.
The defendant proved that the plaintiff was
•merely employed by hint as foreman in over
seeing work on the canal, and that in a suit
between Fuller and him for blacksmith work,
Kiere was offered as a witness,. and that ob-'
jection being made on the ground of his betng
a partner with Nestor, he swore that he was
not ; and that, consequently, he had no tater
est in the event of that suit. The Court
charged the jury, that Kieffe fiat lug formerly
sworn that he was not a partner. woLid now be
precluded from coming into court and/recover
ing by setting up a partnership, and directed
them to find for the defendant ; which was ac
cordingly done.

James H. Clark vs. Thomas Wolcott. This
was an action of trespass for seizing and selling
a horse and harness as the property of Oliver
Sherman, which the plaintiff alleged belonged
to him.
The plaintiff called witnesses, who swore
that Oliver Sherman, being desirous to remove
to Indiana, agreed to sell this property to him
on condition of his taking him thittler. The
contract was entered into on the sixth day of
June 1843, and a few days alter, when Sher
man had started for the West, the property was
seized' on an attachment and subsequently
The defence set up was, that Sherman being
indebted beyond nut ability to pay, was desi
rou,s of leaving this county with as much of
his property as possible ; and that with this
intention, the pretended sale of this property
took place. That the property remained in
the possession of Sherman, and was used by
him as his own from the sixth day of June,
the time of the alleged transfer, till the tenth
of June, the day when was seized upon by
virtue of an attachment irtfavor of Dr. Wilder.
The jury in the case of Clark vs. Wolcott,
returned a Y rdict for the defendant.
The Gran jury during the present term,
returned seven een indictments, true bills, and
two ignoramus.
At the close of their labors, the ., Grand Jury
unanimously expressed their opinion that the
great multiplicity of suits with which our Court
Of Quarter Sessions is crowded, is a great pub
lic grievance, leading to increased taxation for
the purpose of paying the costs.

GENTLnaI :—Our New Orleans' friends
will doubtless be glad to bear about;.nrafters
and things at this noted place.whiCh is now
aic: theatre of Military. operations between two
great opposing republics—both immensely
greet. so far as territory is concerned., but big
and little in all other respects. Col. II: L-.
Kinney, the proprietor of the Rancho, arrived
here on the 22. d instant. from the convention at
Anson, having obtained leave of absence from
that body. On his route hither, he passed
through San Antonio de Bexar ; and while
there, lam informed. had an interview with
three .of the most thstingnised chiefs of the
Cumanche and Lipari tribes of Indians—Buffa
lo fluor, Yellow Well, and Same Anna. The
latter; as you niav live heard, is the famous
chief who. during the last year or two, has
been ianeing shout the country west of this,
and (taming such b ivoc. 111 isle nod property-.
On the Rio Grande and elsewhere; and who,
from his own account, as Well as from tutor
elation otherwise received, headed the parties
attacked this plaCe several times during
that period. It appears that he was determin
ed, if possible. to break up the Ranche, but
all his efforte to thotend proved fruitless. The -
;', - essunal appearance of this, noted w
w h eit ilressed . aud mounted for a\fight. snide - those whO have seen him too often
scribed it,s:
about here, as being 'very imposing; while,
at t h e sane time, nothing I can say would give
you ,et Idea of his brivery and energy in ac
tion. It appears, however. that in Col. Kin
ney, who headed the party which gwie him
battle at this place more than once last sum
mer. he (wind his match; and was willing to
retreat. having. in his last engagement, receiv
ed a ball from the colonel's pistol while in the
act of spearing one 0f his men. The meeting
of these two men at Dexar must have been very
exciting—finding themselves on friendly terms
so soon after having been opposed to each
other in deadly conflict, and so narrowly escap
ing with their lives.
Col. K. reports that about 400 Cumanches
had recently started from the interior, on a
campaign to Mexico, all of whom profess to
be on friendly terms with Texas. It is to be
inferred, therefore, that, should it be necessa
ry to increase the force of Uncle Sam and
Texas combined, to whip our bhotketted neigh
bors. (than Which, however ; nothing is more
absurd.) the aid of the brave Comanche could
be secured.
On the 20th instant. General Mehta arrived
at Matamoras, from the interior, with 1,500
men. That place has recently been doubly

'Gen. Taylor, of the United States forces
here, returned to die Ranche yesterday, from
an excnsion up the Nueees, whither he went
for the porn,.e_sif seeing the country and meet
ing the dragoons. now hourly - expected at this
place. He is much pleased with Corpus
Christi, and the country he has seen adjacent
to it. The stoup is located immediately above
town, on the Lank of the bay, in a very plea
sant, airy place, where a good supply of Water
is to be had by digging only soma five or six
feet deep. The steamer Dayton, from Galves

Joseph's island. together with some twelve or
fifteen small sad of vessels.

disposed to sustain the people of the place in
keeping it up.

•• We are happy, therefore. to understand
that the reintorcements are still advancing.--
Every day is increasing the regular force of
General Taylor. He is preparing to throw his
advance lines, with the dragoons in front, first
towards, and then upon the Rio Grande ; and
though he will not interrupt any Mexican post
which is now to the east of the river, yet he
will prevent any reinforcements which the
Mexicans may attempt to throw on this side of
the river. He should, however, employ the
utmost circumspection, and watch the impudent
and insidious Mexican,. Whilst our govern
ment will continue to arm themselves, and will
retaliate any hostile measures which the brag
gart Mexicans may attempt to carry into exe
cution, they will not •• keep the door of con
ciliation " closed; yet they will accept no
overture for negotiation which cannot be ac
