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 support. 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 doubtful. 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. President Judge. fly reference to the proceedings of the Judicial Conference, it will be seen that lion. DAVID WIL MOT has been unanimously notitinved as the can didate fOr President Judge'ot the 13th Judicial die. 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 selection of Mr. W. to preside over our e'bnint will* fortunate for the tax-payers , and peo ple of the flfstriet, frowned of a clear, active legal mind, unitedi.r prom Its f and decision, the basin's, of the Coons will be despatched' in as speedy a manna as iseonsistant with the rights of Ate parties interested. Having been in Congress for the last six years, and consequently unable to attend to the practice of the law, he is employed in WI few cases now upon the calendar, and will be debarresr from trying lint few matters which may come before the Court, thus dispensing 'with. the necessity of expensiverand frequent special Courts, as is now the race. - -We might add, that ,while theiDemocratio party ace united almost to a man, in snpport of Mr. Wu, Nor, the rook of the District have fog soma time been- looking to. him as the - moea proper person to fill the station for which he has been nominated.

Men of character and ability; Passetseil'in a liberal degree of all qualifications requisite theirelevation to the bench wilflitan honor to the County. - IMI IN 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- - 'hood. 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 then. 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. The • popular young:Democrat, who has been nominated for this offierr e is admirably tuned to dia. charge its duties. He belongs to that claim who are the chief source of our nation's giriatnees—the Farmers of the Land—has teen from boyhood identified with the Democratic party and has ren. !beted the cause signal service on many important ,occasicuis. , the same time be is abundantly qualified• not anti ler this; bet for any office in ti e gift of the Democracy of Bradford. His abilities, gentlemanly manners, and obligingilisposition will make him an obliging and. popular officer. His election. is beyond) all' question-..thodgh the Whigs hue brought forwent in opposition to him, one of Iheir old anti well tried candidates. The importance of this otlice is second to none, to the tax payers of the county. The incumbent should be an honest man, of good business habits,. agouti accountant, and above all, animated by a desire to guard , the interests of the Comity against the povibility el wrong. Such qualification* are combined iwan eminent degree, in our candidate I.7,OI,VARDV. iVELLS, whose election will be a govriantee that the disfics• albs office wiII be fai fully perfartnedi ;hi J.liu Sherif., PArtipthotiotaiy.

The responsibilities of this office "are at present not very great—in fact, -we believe Bradlord has been without such an officer for the last-three years.

The disap pointed catalitlate left, we understand, with a rpm- ' ky determination to avenge the wrong Wyoming had suffered. The grime worked well in the Sen ator case, tut we should imagine would hardly pay for the trouble in the present instance.

THE TICE/MINIX TRAOILDIT RCM NICWARY,, DcLA 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. ad, when the ruffian shot him, tearing his hand.— 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 false —Correspondent of the Ledger.

EXECUTION OF GEL LOP Z ! asp Or tub arvassait • The Mail aleamshiP Ernpiie car, John Tanner Corn. f 'arrived at New Yorkist 2} o'clock M. on Saturday, from New Odeans and Havana. From the ;aver place she sailed on the Ist inst. Havana had been the secutt - efltibileirtunl re. joking for the three days previous owing to tie cap ture of Gen. Lopez add his forces. The news reached Havana on the 30th all. Flags were hoisted, guns fired. At night buildings were illuminated, and torch. light processions formed. In tact it was e day of general rejoicing. Loper wattaken in the interior wandesing alone —nearly exhausted from fatigue and hunger. lie asked for something to eat at a farmhouse,and permission to lay down ; while asleep he was ound and made prisoner. 01 his followers one hundred and fifty-bire are now imprisoned, and are to be sent to Spain for ten years confinement in a dun. germ. , They say their snflerings before taken were in. tense.

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. ed; at the first twist of the screw his head dropped forward—and he was dead. - Thus ended the career of Gen. Lope; so long .he dread and terror of Cuban authorities. In no instance, (the prisoners say,) have the Creoles of the Isaland manifested the least disposi tion to join them, The excitement in Havana it fast subsiding since the annihilation of Lopez and his forces. No more fears of an invasion are entertained. The French war steamer Asmodeos sailed from Havana on the Ist inst. The following letter trom our correspondent at Havana, confirms the story that the invaders repulsed 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— chains fir /ye ir. Africa, in lien of death. 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, robatity ; if not, they have only,4p thank those at 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, Sus. 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. ment. • - sictaigrrns 01 LOPEZ.

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. The Ecclesiastical Titles act seems likely to bring aboa: a good deal of rancor and polemical antago nism between! the British government and the Catholic ponien4of Ireland.

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 'darken Hyde Park, and the sails of the yacht America will throw a shadow over the Crystal Pal ace.—Herald. SLAVERY ABOLISHED IN NEW GRENADA —The re 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. o*...4lehmeholy Sight—Dr. Read, a traveller through the highlands of Peru, is said to have found lately, in the desert of Alacame, the dried remains or an assemblage of human eings, five or eix hundred in number, men, women, and children, seated in a setni,circle as when alive, starin g into the homing wage before them ; they had not been buried; life had' not departed before they thus sat around, but bops was gone; the Spanish invader was at hand, and no escape being left, they had came hither to die.. They still sat immovable in that dreary desert ; died like mummies by the el feet of the hot air, they still keep their position, sit. ting up as in solemn council, while over that dread' Areopagus silence broods everlas ingly.
