We and that we do nut exactly - Lyre in our conclusions with ot:r cotemporary, the Br.z.rford Ikmocrat, edited by the Seuator from tlik 'district who in speaking upon the !me subject, uses the tolloaing aiyMetious and 'bill;ulat language : • " Bradford county fell off amazingly in its vote for Cot. B i gi . er . Bowhould it otherwise have been expeeteil, by any familiar with the dissention in this county in by which General Taylors majori ty over Gen. Cass was aunut 1700. The issues at this election were not so dissimilar to those of 1848 in their e•Ife:1 upon the anti -slavery sympathy, as in have eneouraged,a Tesult so favorable to Col. Big ler to this county. Distrust of this Congressional district was expressed abroad, during the whole canvass, for the reasons we have stated. This d - trust was to some extent felt here ; it was very nat. lira]; it was Mar duty, however. to battle fearlessly ! and with assurances of confidence and success. This was one of the " Rural districts," froth which the Tribune promised so much for Gov. Johnston; But no such figures w e re attained a s Greely and others estimated for, Bradford county.— Tinder the circumstances, we have much to congrat ulate ourselves that it was no wore. W e met as, well as we could, the unremitting efforts•of the op position press, to make another slavery issue, and to enlist for Gov. Johnston the forces that sustained Martin Van Buren. The Democracy of Bradford generally stood firm, and repelled the attempt to harsess them to a car, whictl, in its progrese, was destined to crush their hopes for, the triumph of their long cherished principles " Now as nearly as we can understand the blind ,/and ambigunuslanguage in which the meaning of ( this paragraph is couched; it is a declaration that thopemocracy of Bradford who supported Martin Van Boren in were obliged, to preserve their crinsistencp ta`cote for Wm. F. Johnsten this fall, and further that they were expected to do en, and hence the falling oft in the vote for amen. It thi' -declaration lid comelrom a journal published re a distance, we should have had the charity to believe that it was the result of ignorance ; but appearing in our midst, and written by a man. who of his ele vation to professions for principles he has betrayed, we can only regard it as the cdApring of malice, I envy or disappointithent. It appears to have been the aim of the Democrat ihrough"the late contest, to drive off from the sop•, port of Ccil. Boma, as many of the free-soil votes of this courty as Pn;si&ie ; for in no other light can we view the efforts of that paper to. introduce into the.canvass the collateral issues of the Compromise. measures ;—matters which were in no wise heroic. ed in the contest—.and which'nnr Democracy, it is well known, while they maybe ready to acquiese in them, would never rally to the support of any man wtin fought upon that question solely. Thai it has damned the cause of Col. Bigler, is unques tionable ; but fortunately the limited circulation of she Democrat; awl the little respect paid to What it puts for h, rendered the attempt hi ii gieav Measure, unsoccessfu 1. We should not deem Ms paragraph we traulquo ted, worthy of attention, did it not bring forward the whole question, permitting us the opportunity we have desired of reviewing the Late j contest in its - length and breadth, and of noticing remarks which have appeared in other journals, some anticipaling a great vote for Johnston in the North ; others de. nouncing We.3tor for his support of Bigler ;'and others again heralding the vote in Bradford, as the vesult 01 the different positions of, the candidates. arm the Slavery question. • The nomination of Col. Blom was made unoni- Mously. Public sentiment had pointed him out as the candidate for months before the Contention met, and that body had only to ratifylhe popular voice. Why this unparalleled popularity Was it because of his position upon the Slavery questioni, Why, on the 26:h day of January, in the year of. grace. )947, WiLema Bioextt's name is the fir t recorded in the list of Servitors who voted for the passage of the Wilmot Proviso, which had previously been adopted in the Douse. lesthis same Witusta 14GLER, whom it is now contended that the Demo. crate of Bradford could not support, was then en dorsing the principles of Free Territory, and etrengthening atm) Wit.mov in 'he noble position he had assumed, of endeavoring to stay the progress of Slavery. flail the people any evidence, before his nomination, that he disavowed that vote—was it demanded of him that he should repudiate the damnable heresy," and come out for the eaten aim of Slavery'. No I the people took him as he was, Wilmot Proviso 'and ail. We have yet to learn 'that be has disavoweillhat Vote—and we know that he is the nnoompreinising opponent ot the Ex- tension of Slavery. The State Convention•which presented the two candidates to the people for the suffrages, adopted resolutions almost exactly similar in geniiment.— The following is the resolution of the Lancaster Convention, which re-nominated Gov. JenssTo% :— "Resolved. Taat the adjustment measures of. the last Congress shall he faithfully observed and res.- pected by the Whigs." . The Reading Convention which nominated • Col, %ma, adopted the folloling resolution upon the same subject t— "Resolved. That the Denthemtic party of Penn. syleania are true to the Union, the Constitution.and the' laws, and will faithfully observe and execute. so far as in them lies, alt the measures of Comm; 'mist-adopted by the late Congress, for the purpose of setAing the question arising out of domestic eta.

And pile the pv rannu of calumny. - -with a disposition to dive deeper in the dirty pool of falsehood and come up muddier,—it is the Korth American, the journal to which we refer. If there has been any moment in which we were disposed to find fault with Col. BIGLER. far attempts made by neWspapens to place hint in a position of servility to the South, we had only to turn to its columns for an antidote, - and we could find it almost any day since the nomination. It has outdone the Pennsylvania n —out fleroded Herod. I' has proven Gov. JOHN trio" a better friend to the South—a better Uttiott man—a better observer of the Compromise meas ures—than his opponent—and made-it appear per fectly plain, ton. We are able to lay our hoods upon but two copies of the North American, from which we shall make some extracts to show Sena. for Solomon how similar the contests of 1848 and 1851 were. The following, tiaragraph is from that paper of the date of Cietober 11, and appears andel:the head _of " Bigler and the Abolitionists." The article first at tempts to prove BIGLER'S Abolitionism from hie vote upon thq Proviso, and an asserted coalition with WILMOT, and then winde,up in ths following eloquent burst of patriotic indignation : "But since the Pennvloanian has dragged see done) issues Into the controversy, and has endeav ored t,, toduence our election by citing the ez parte opinions of other States, we do not hesitate to de clare that the South has much ground of complaint when ihelpeople tf Pen nsylvania are asked to sustain a candidate who is openly leagued with its worst and avowed enemy, and to sanction a coalition which threatens it with a still fiercer warfare than bas yet been attempted. ' The election of Bigler will be the triumph of Wilmot. It wilibeso proclaimed through% the South, and with abundant testimony to establish tta truth. When the tionth sees Van Bu ren, Preston King. and the Free boilers controlling the professed National Democrats of New York; Chase and his followers leading the same party in . Ohio ; a new and specific coalition between the De mocrats and Abolitionists of Massachusetts; ar rangements between the same parties in Vermont, Con nec:icut, Rhode Island and lowa vand finally as if it were to crown the base bargains, a perfect and carefully stipulated combination between David Wilmot and his followers and Wm. Bigler and his partizans; when such things-are demonstrated, we say what is the South to think, but that there is a con certed scheme, on the part of these coalitions, to continue tNe war on their institutions for the purpose of tibtaining political power. slf. after this exposition, there can be found a man of any party claiming to be a friend of the compromise. of peace and the Union, who can vote for the Bigler and Wilmot ticket. we do nut envy him the expansive capacity of his conscience." This editor, who was Jonittsrox's chief .fogleman in Pennsylvania, ales no reason why Mutar and his frienls should not support &Meg, but on the contrary, deems such a conclusion inevitable, from Bint.r.a's precious course; and by coopting the two names together, endeavors to provoke prejudice and turn from the support of Mr. Bunn those Democrats whose only care is to propitiate Southern sentiment. In the issue of October 13, Which is the day be fore the election, the genie ie played still stronger. A long article appears healed " Sectional Agitation;'' 1.1 prove the soundness of Gov. Johnston's views In regard to Southern rights.. His sentiments are 'de. dared to be identical with those of President Fill. more, Henry Clay and Daniel Webster, and th e e editor gives utterance to the following jeremiad : "S et thii honorable and honest Executive, who. upon all occasions, and under alt circumstances, has stood by the compromises of the Constitution, and vindicated their obligations, has been uescro pulonsly assailed as an " Abolitionist," and as an enemy to the Union. And by who has he been thus assailed 3 By the intriguing and mercenary poli ticians who are now fraternizing with David mot and his band. and who have raised this outcry with no other design than to conceal the villany of their own schemes. When we look abroad over the whole country; the only' real agitators at the north and the south are to be found in the ranks of the sat:ailed Democratic party. ID the former, Wilmot, Van Boren, Chase, Hale. Dix. Rantoul, Giddings, Wentworth, andihe like are the accepted tenders, and in the lotter t Quitman, Boalearaesdale leffenion Davis, McDonald, Troup./ohoston, Yoke. and such, wear the badges of authority.

Because, as the Democratic party of Vermont, Maesschusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Wand, Ohio, to. wa.. and other States, hate openly bargained and coalesced with the Free Boilers. the election of the Wilmot and Bigler ticket in this State, would give a great impetus to a concerted movement upon the next Congress. and lead to renewed agitation, under these continued and powerful aospices, which might seriously endanger the peace and safety of the Union." Now. all these charges may, or they may not be true. We have quoted she extracts to show in what manner Gov. Johnston was cond noting the can vass, and what little .claim he would Have had upo;i voles, if the questinit had entered in the contest. They are specimens of what ap poared every day in that journal, and show that the " Polk, Dallas and 'Ludo( 1842rdodge, was not lost upon cur whig f,ientk Credit was clairned for Gov...lolinston for pocket ing the bill repealing the 6th section of the act of 1847. This repealing section was adopted from a desire on the part of some oft our Sotone to shim' the derifof their servility to the South. It is a mailer of small importance in itself, involving no principle.. Had Gov. J., promptly vetoed the bill, we would have given him e•edit for a manly act, but we are nrd• willing to award him praise lot evading the re sponsibility. II the Democracy of Bradford could give Gong sired' 507 majority in 1848, what reason had they t i within Id their stippott Com Bigle•, now, and why should they be looked upon with distrust." Then, the gamiest of Free Territory was prominently b• fore them, • and a portion fen it their duty to with hold their support from Gen. Cass, upon that ques tine. Yet they rallied to Longstreth's support, as they have to the support of every State ticket since Did BIGLER stand in any more unfavorable position, with a vote recorded for the Proviso I The ri dis trust''that was felt of our Democracy, must have been in the breasts of those who would have been willing to have seen the Fiee Soil vote of the court ly cast against Bigler, and who endeavored in•every way, except openly, to produce that result, and who have experienced thrit when it is necessary to yin dicateprincipfc, our Democracy are not afraid to re• buke traitors. We hinted very briefly, in a former article, at some of .he causes which served to lessen'the vote for Bigler in Bradford. The Democrat has seen fit to lay it upon that portion of the Democracy who supported Van Buren in 1848, We brand the as• section as an unqualified and impudent falsehood. significant either of mental obtuseness or a luck of moral integrity. We have said, and we repeat it, that the " anti -Lavery sympathy" here did not pro cure Johnston a dozen votes. The editor of the Democrat knows this, it he would Lave the candor to acknowledge it. lie knows perfectly well, that it was not acktiow:erhzed at an issue ; that it it had teen, the course pursued by that.paper, in being a very feeble echo of the Pennsylvanian, would have driven oft from. BIGLaII hundreds of Democratic vo ters. But he falls behind the Democratic ticket on , ly about too votes. Extraordinary exertions were made for Jonas-Ton in Bradford. — Had his friends done as well throughout the State he would have been elected. He ran over 300 votes ahead of the Whig ticket generally, because the great effort was made for him. When we take into consideration all the mar-. rences Of our contest, we must say that we have done much better for BIGLan than we had any rea son to expect. We have been a furious onslaught made on a portion of the county ticket, by unscru lona men, who were determined to pally their malignancy by the aacrifiee of everything, and that they did not succeed in doing more injury to oar State ticket, is oar only wonder. Stich proceedings are calculated to do injury to the ticket, from the tact that honest men, when they come to the polls, and see men who profess to be Democrats engaged in a bold and traitorous warfare upon a part *at the ticket, are very apt to become disgusted, and after voting merely for the candidates whom they are anxious to see elected, leave'the scene of treachery. That Bigler lost votes by the fent-mouthed abuse of Mr. Wit.surr, from men who portended to be very anxious for the State ticket, had repudiated the County ticket, we do not doubt—nor is there any question that the same - men' sacrificed BIGLER to procure votes against Mr.WomoT. But the imputation amempted to be cast upon the Van Buren men of 18-18, in saying they should have been "distrusted," or that they did not support Bi gler, isa foul slander upon as toteligent and con sistent a body of ,Demoerats as ever oast a vote.:— It comes with a poor grate from that paper, at pres ent. The object ot'the editor is as transparent, as his exeninns to provoke a breach amongst oar De- , mocracy will be futile. Fire I About 12 otclock, on Thursday morning, a large wooden building on the river bank, above the dam, built and occupied by Packer, Bennett & Co., ea a blacksmith's shop and store-house, was discoiered to bo on fire, and erasspeedily, burned to the ground. The building contained a large amount of iron and steel, cement, wooden pins, and the working tools of this company, and the loss must be considerable. The adjacent buildings were in great danger for a time; but by strenuous exertiorks, and the wind favoring, its further progress was prevented.

CANINE lssTtscr.—We know of nothing in the story line that is better than a good dog story. The frilloaring, if not the very best of its kind, is certain. ly a very excellent one, and may be relied on as strictly true. We give the well known names of the partie4 as vouchers: Some three weeks since, Mr. Theo. Holbrook, of Milk street, broke up housekeeping in Roxbury and sent three of the children to South Hadley, Mass., to attend school. On leaving home, the children took with them their favorite spaniel dog. that Ited been their, companion and play-mate for eight years. He rode m the car with them to Had ley, and remained with the children during the af. temoon, but the next morning was missing, and could no where be found. The only trace that could be fonnd of him was that he was seen Cross ing the 101 l bridge. Twelve days:after the dog left Hadley, he arriv ed at his old home in Fluttery. But not finding any of brs old friends there, ho called at Mr. Wm. Whitin'g's, his master's next door neighbor, and sought admittance by scratching on the door. Mr. Whiting's family at once recognised him and ad. mitted him. He was vety much exhausted, and very. foot in flesh, and very hangs. Mr W.'s little girl immediately undertook the work of nursing, the poor travel worn spaniel. He rapidly Improv. ed under her care, and in a day or two ,corimeno. ed following her, end would not allow her to go ten steps with-ut him. He insisted on following her, even to school, and, lying at her feet during acoolhours.,, : gnii it was not until his old _master came for.bibx lbw he could be induced to leave his little klittfirt The 'great question now for the curious to answer is: How could this dog find his way to Roxbur from south Hadley, a distance of 150 miles? He was cattle(' all the way in the cars, and of course had no opportunity to see the road. And then again, it is evident, from the length of time-vonsumed in the journey, (twelve days.) that he did not come directly, for he probably would have travelled that 'distance in allay. He ninst,have wandered many hundreds of miles before he' struck some trail by which he could Make his way homeward.—Boston Mndler.
