We cannot too strongly urge upon our Democrat
ic friends the necessity of an active and energetic
support of all the candidates on our county ticket.
Let every one remember that our motto is " princi
ples not men." As it is impossible for all to be grati
fied in the selection of candidates we adopt the
delegate system, as the mast democratic, and the
one best calculated to unite the action of the party
upon our candidate for each office, and in doing so,
there must of course, and of necessity, be. a sacri
fice to some extent of personal preferences to pre
ewe union er &length. Hence, it is the duty of
the delegates, when they assemble in convention,
to pursue a system of conciliation ; otherwise their
deliberations would , be characterizei by discord,
and result in disuniort, distraction, and defeat ; and
thus enable our enemies to strike a blow, which
would defeat our candidates and prostrate our re
, publican principles.
When a county ticket is formed, as it now is, by
the harmonious - action of the convention of dele
gates, composed of men who maintain and advo
rate true republican principles, it certainly becomes
the duty, and should be the pleasure of every one
who professes the name of Democrat—who is go
verned by the principles he professes, to give the
whole ticket his cheeiful, dent and- undivided
We have a ticket composeillof men, who in point
of moral and political integrity, are entirely nue:-
- ceptionable, and democrats should remember that
every deviation from the line of the party produces
a laity,' - which makes our succes hereafter more
in short let every democrat go to the polls with
this mato for his guide : " Dios= we STAND—
DIVIDED WC FALL ;" and with a determination to
sustain the principles of his political faith ; then,
when the hanle is ended and the victory won, be
will be able to mingle in the feelicgs of general joy,
w ith the friends of Democracy, in a complete-sad
glorious triumph over his enemies.

trict. The unanimity with - which this nomination
has been'made, is a certain guarantee of the tri.
nmphant election of Mr. ablator. As yet, there
is no opposing candidate in the field, and should
ewe be brought odt, it will be more for the 'sake
of keeping up• appearances, by the Whigs, than the
hope of defeating a man who has so strong a hold
upon the confidence and esteem of the people of
this District.

The extraordinary exertions which in years past
have employed by persons aspiring for the
nomination as the candidate for Sherift, in this case
have not been put forth. The attention orthe Demo
cratic party has for some time been directed to
CHESTER THOMAS, as the proper person to re
ceive the nomination: The untoward difficulties
which once defeated him at the polls—(the same
difficulties having on one or two occasions prevent.
ed his nominatioti) —the prejudices which by Mil , .
representation and catamny had operated power
fully against him—Having now become eradicated
and forgotten, pr thoroughly esposed, the Demo
crane party hare hastened to do justi: , :e to the truest
soldier that fights wider her banner, by nominating
him for this very - post, with an en:tallith) , and zeal
unparalleled. The nomination has been bestowed
noon him without effort upon his part, against a
disadvantageous location. solely through that feeling
which ever actuates the Democracy, not to.see her
faith lot solders struck down, byjprejudice and false- -
ow Triktariona Tr.
CHESTER THOMAS is worthy the support of
the Democratic party. He is a farmer active, en=
ergetie, and persevering in all his undertakes, and
has the repntation of being one of the most prompt
and entree business men in the county. It is uni
versally admitted by all who know him, that he will
make an efficient public officer. tle has ever been
a consistent and active Democrat, and has rendered
good service to the party. His election is now re-.
deceit to a certainty. The unanimity with which
the nomination was bestowed upon him--theenthusi
asm with which the Democracy are rallying to his
support is the sure precursor of a triumphant elect
ion Those who were foremost in defeating him
bef3re, are now the most zealous in his support, and
anxious to repay the injuries inflicted upon him
os Wyk
C. H. HERRICK, the nominee of the Democracy
for Prothonotary, &a., is a gentleman we take great
pleasure in recommending to the support of the par
ty which has placed him in nomination. The- du
ties of the important office fur which he hat been
named, will be -well discharged by Mr. H We
will not allow ourselves for a moment to doubt the
success of a campilate so worthy the support of any
party, in a county which has several hundreds of a
democratic majority. It is a stigma upon that party
to say that it will permit the detest of such a man
as C. H. Maws for any post for which he might
be named. Still, rendered bold by their former
success, the whig;party have put for ward the pres
ent gentlemanly incumbent of that office, and trill
strain every nerve to secure his election. Megrim
contest will be upon this office and that of Sheriff.
It needs but a small share of activity on the part of
the - Democracy to Irustrate all their plans. Shall
not that activity be exercised 1 Our candidates are
men of unblemished characters, of undoubted ability.
They are entitled to the undivided and cordial sup
ped of thei,WHOLE PARTY. They have a right to
expect it We trust there is no democrat so interim
as to be willing to occasionally be voting for whig,
nominees. Such a course is fraught with incalcula
ble dangers to the Democratic pr sty. It hazards our
ascendancy in Bradford. The occasional success
of a candidate spurs on the Whig party to increased
efforts and makes double amleity accessary among
the Democrats. Let as triumph this tall with the
WHOLE . TICKET. The word has but to go forth,
from one end of the Democratic ranks to the other,
and that fortunate result is accomplished.
The re•nomination of ADDISON WEE.IN and
HENRY GIBBS for Repreaentatives, was both in
acconlanee with the usual custom o the party, and
a testimonial to the ability and faithfulness which
characterized their legislative course last winter:.
It isa long time since Bradford could boast of having
abler Representatives in:the Legislature than she had
last winter, in the persona of the gentlemen who
have been again brought , forward by the Democratic
party. Punctual . in theiF attendance upon their du
ties, the interests of the North and of Bradford Conn
ty were guarded with vigilance. En;oying in the
highest degree, the confidence and e4eem of their
fellow.members, they will be enabled to effect
more for the Welfare of the North, at the next sea
pion, than any other two men whocoold be elected
01 their triumphant re-election there is not the
shadow of a doubt.

nominated for this offierr e is admirably tuned to dia.

The importance of this otlice is second to none,

wa near the scene of the tragedy, at New
ark, on Saturday evening, I am able to give a more
correct account than is perhaps yet known. The
murderer, Ginn, has been living with a woman by
the name of Pritchard, for several years, as her
husband. She, on the evening of Saturday, angered
him very much, so much so that he dress a pistol,
lifted the child reposing on her breast, tram it and
pulled the trigger ; she jumped aside, and the charge
tore the flesh oil her side, anti burned the chilli's
hand. Her brother, Henry Pritchard, then interter.

Henry then ran over to his house, about two hund
red yards nil, for assiitance, and in a little while re
turned, although persuaded by his family not to J 9
so, end wheel walking up the path to Gimes house,
Ginn met him, saying, " Now, I'll be d—sl it I
don't shoot you," and lifting a double-baneful - gun,
he riddled Pritchard with buck-shot, tearing the
heart and lungs kiragi. Ginn, after shaming, melt
no direct attempt to escape, but told the affrighted
people, who thronged around, and who were not
able, through fear, to touch him, " that he.hadshot
one, and that he would shoot five, amt - then he
would give himself op to be hung." He then went
away, and as soon as de affair became known,
some fifty people searched the swamp for him, but
were not able, up to this miming, (Monday,) when
I left Newark to catch him. He was seen, yeller.
day, sitting on a fence, with his gun, looking for
more victims.
Being close by the place, I am able to give full
and true particulais, although there are many m.
more about, and some very ridiculous and very

Gen. Enna, the bravest officer in the inny, was
shot white leading a charge at the head of a small
squadron of cavaliv. He was second in command
to Concha. At that charge every man was shot
down. The Spanish Generals said it was impossi
ble to rally their troops to charge on the assailants.
Lopez was garroted on Monday morning, Sept.
I, at 7 o'clock. The scene of execution was at the
" Punta," opposite the " Moro." There were tw
sembled from eight to ten thousand troops and u
many citizens.
A few minutes before 7 Lopez was brought for.
ward, and Xseended the platform with a firm and
steady step. Facing the multitude be made a
short speech, and his last words were, "I die for
my beloved Cuba."
He then took' his seat—the machine was adjust.

forward—and he was dead. -
Thus ended the career of Gen. Lope; so long

The excitement in Havana it fast subsiding since

the troops at eve . q onslaught maderby the latter:
HAVANA, Mon lay, Sept. lw , 1851.
After having defeated and wasted await, the
Spanish forces sent to capture him, Gen. Lopez
worn out in the struggle, has been obliged to suc
cumb—the Creoles not having lifted a hand to sus
tain Wm.—continually promising, but never coming
to the work. Having commenced with so much
spirit their redemption from bondage, it was sup
posed that after the landing of their friends had
been effected, and such noble battles fought against
the whole strength of the army in this vicinity that
they 'would not have hesitated—but they have nerve
for love—none for war.
Gen. Utpez was to have been executed this
morning at 6 o'clock—by the gorrot&—captured by
a Creole! in the mountains, after being worn out
by sickness and continued exposure—and in conse
quence of the opetalion of partial pardon offered by
the Governthent to those who would come in—

This community is in much excitement, owing
to the treatment of Spaniards in New °deans, and
our countrymen we not regarded with much favor.
The force of the law and order will protect them,

home for what evil may charms:
Our Consul has received threatening letters, but
there has been no violence upon foreig,ners in the
streets or their dwellings—nor will there be, as I
believe. Capt. Platt, sloop-ol war Albany, atm
his vessel had been visited on entering port, re
ceived very complimentary Idlers from the Captain
General—a slave tot the wounded honor of the flag,
TIIC fa r.cvnonr..
'The following is our conespondent'l account o
this 'event :
Gen. Lopez was executed this mominst, at the
ordinary place of execution, at 7 o'clock, in the
presence of an immense crowd. His effigy had
been worn out the two days previous in the extrava
gant ioy of the populace. His last words as near
as I can render them were :
" My Countrymen : Pardon_ me for the evil, if
any I have caused to you. I have not intended any
evil, but your good rather. Farewell !"
The bearing of Lopez as he was led to the gar
rote, which was placed on a platform some twelve
or fifteen feel above the ground, was perfectly firm
and manly. Whatever he may have said previous.
ly, he uttered no reproaches upon those who had
promised to support hini - , - but had failed to beep
their word. The execution was conducted in an
orderly manner, and with little noire on the part of
the crowd.
The Diaro de la Marina denies that the bodies of
the fifty who were shot at Havana suffered any
mutilation or outrage at the hands of the rabble : it
says that from their capture to their execution they
were treated with the utmost consideration possible
in their situation; that they were allowed to see
theirfamilies; that after their execution the bodies
were removed:in hearses used by people In good
circumstances, not in, those appropriated to crimi
nals; and even that the government permitted
some of the bodies tO be removed, and allowed the
opened letters they bid upon them to be sent home;
and that the population al the city on this occasion
ason others, exhibited perfect respect for the antbori•
ties and for the bodies of three who hail suffered
by the law. Such is the statement of The Diario,
made of course, under the direction of the Govern.

Cotton has advanced one-eighth of a penny On

America, and the market is very solve. The Havre

money market in the moment, but no long confine

The political-news is without much interest of a
spirited kind. Some uneasiness has been excited
at Madrid by the recent mad adventures connected
with the attempted revolution in Cuba, and it is
stated that General' Aspic had given the Minister
of Foreign Affairs assurances that France would
assist Spain in repelling attacks' upon the island of
Queen Whistle.
The propositions made some time ago by Austria,
to annex all her province to the Germanic confed
ration, has met with such a check from the Euro•
pearl pewees, that the project, it is stated, has been
abandoned. It is said' that Russia, which seemed
inclined to assist the movement originally, has taken
a sober second thought on the sutiect. France and
England still maintain that such annexation would
be contrary to the stipulations of the treaty between
the European powers. They maintain that the
project is European, and not simply a tuitional. one.

In all other respects the political traequillity of
Great Britain promises to be undisturbed. Two
subjects only engage the attention Of the people—
the Great Exhibition and the marvellous sailing
qualities of the yacht America, which sails on from
triumph to triumph. Scarcely have we, thepeo
ple of the United States, escaped unharmed from
the broadsides poured upon its for our meagre dis
play Nt the World's Fair, than in sails Brother
Jonathan vritta small schooner, that puts the whole
Crystal Palace into the shade. All the nation get
iumnated at the sight of such a littleponder of the
deep—the sporting boys who have lived on Bell's
Life !fur a dozen of-years, grove curious to know
what is in the wind--and Her Majesty, the interes.
ting, 'Victoria herself, cannot live without seeing
Brother Jonathan's yatch. She accordingly em
barks in the State barge, and goes on board the lit
tle " American"—and afterwards, delighted with
her visit; sends five pouads for distribution among
crew. This is not so large a sum moor pilot boys
get when they fall in with a craft three, or tour, or
five hundred miles at sea, bat we have no doubt
that they " graciously accepted" the present. By
the way, it is to these very pilot boys that we owe
our improvements in yachts. For the last half qr.
tory they have been an the habit of running down
upon the ocean, to the distance of several horidred
miles, in search of vessels wanting pilots, and to
obtain the news for the public journals. With the
establishment of the New York Herald came an
other epoch in their fame. It was recessary that
they should out-sail everything, and they struggled
to do it. They succeeded--and the credit is theirs
of having made our yatch system one of great in
terest and excitement, besides one of profit' and
honor. England capitol beat us in yachts or pilot
boats. She must be contented p to build the largest
Crystal Palace in the world, and to fill them with
the toys of other nations—bnt the yachts, or steam
ers, or cutlets, or clippers, or men of war, she is
beheld us. The smoke of one of oar steamers will

cent adoption by Congress of New Grenada of a
law by which slavery is abolished throughout the
Republic, has been already alluded to. The law
will go into effect on the IA oflanuary. It provides
that "all persons liberated shall be entitled to the
same privilages, and governed by the same laws,
as are other citizens of New Grenada. No slave
under forty five years shall be valued at a greater
sum than one thousan,l six hundred realm i if a male,
not onethouland two hundred mal es if a fe
male ; over forty-five, the value of a male slave
shall not exceed one thousand two hundred reals,
and a female slave eight hundred reels, which
compensation is to be paid to the owners by the
Government." The Bogota Gazette (official) says
a decree has been addressed to the Boards 01 Man
umission, which specifies the manner in which the
provisions of the above law shall be carried out.—
The slave, whose owner is not capable of proving
his rigit of ownership, shall be liberated without
farther legal proceedings; and the Boards will have
the authority to pronounce his manumission. Own.
em of slaves, who are to be emancipated from time
to time, will receive a remuneration,
to be arpor.
timed from the funds appropriated by law for this
purpose. The price of the slave must previously
be assessed by two appniisem—one appointed by
the Board, and the other by the owner. The same
journal says that a loan has been negotiated be
tween the Government and ?Jr. Theodore Moore,
far !bosom of 625,000 'francs, at' a rate of interest of
12 per cent. per annum. We suppose this is to
carry out the provisions of the law.
