Democratic County Convention
The Proceedings of the Convention which met at
this place on Tuesday evening lasi, wilt be found
reported at length in another column. The delibera
tions of that body were chanicterized by a goW
feeling, which he have rarely seen exhibited on
previous occasion., and the dele2 - ates separated,
carrying with theth universally.a feeling of satisfac
tion with the ticket formed, ahich previouspredi

manifested for the election of the successful com

We believe that ff campaign has never been en

inge of animosity have been engendered—the gen
tlemen whose aspirations have not been gratified,
ei becomes every good Democrat, bow in submit'.
sion to the chbice of the majority, and are ready
with their friends to render the ticket that support
they would have expected had the result in the
Convention been more favorable to themselves.
Of the ticket as a whole, none more worth-, of
the sopport of the party has been presented for the:r
euffrages fir years. It is composed of candidates
every way competent in discharge the duties of the
offices for which they have been named, and will
receive the cordial appmbarion of the whole party.
We bespeak for it an enthasiaslic and zealous sup
port; and a triumphant endorsement at the polls.
Decision of the Supreme Court
A telegraphic despatch from Pittl.arg, dated the
inst., states the decision of Ole Supreme Court
On Railroad F ub=cripttons was given that morning,
from a full bench. The despatch goes on to say
that the Court Room was crowded, in expectation
that a decision would be rendered upon the ques
tion of the constitu'ional power of the cities and
counties to subscribe in their corporate capacities
tb the construction of railroads. The case before
the coon was that ot- William Sharpless et als , vs.
the Mayor, &c , and was argued some time since.
Each Judge read a separate opinion, and certain
ly five such able opinions have rarely, if ever, pro.
ceeded from any legal tribunal. The learned Chief
Justice Black occupied about one hour and a quar
ter in reading hithopinion, refusing the injunction,
and deciding in favor of the constitutionality of the
acts of the Assembly authorising corporate subscrip
tions. Justice Lewis occupied more than an hour
in reading his opinion in the opposite view. Jus
tice Lowrie next followed, with a shorter opiniot.,
coinciding aith the vie as of Judge, Lewis Justice
IVoodward next followed, agreeing in substance,
with the views of Chief Justice Black. Thus far
the'fou'r Judges stood equally divided, when Justice
Knox, the new Judge, concluded, by reading his
opinion, in a brief but lucid mariner, and decided
the case, by concurring with Judges Black and
This decision, we have every reason to believe
removes every obstacle in the way of the immedi
ate commencement of work on the North Pennsyl
vania Railroad—which we hope soon to F ee put
under contract, fur its entire length, horn Philadel
phia to the State line.
_in pursuance of a call, published in the Reporter,
a-Temperance Convention was held at the Court
Muse, on Monday evening r d r Ast.. Its proceedings
are unknnwn to us, further than the nomination of
ZEBOLON VILISZIE, of Orwell, and Jona V. DANIELS,
of Burlington, as candidates for Beprestiniatives.—
We have not been favored with the proceedings for
publication 7, and cousequently are unwilling this
week, to make the remarks which naturally sug
gest themselves Irom the strange coincidence of
action of the Temperance and Whig.Conventioni-,
as we prefer the dames and proceedings as authori
lively reported. ----

The nomination for nosectiting Attorney, 'has
been bestowed opon our fallo w•towniman, J AMES
MA CFA RLAN E, who is already known to the pub.
lic as an able lawyer, and a correct and industrious
bn-fines.-man. We believe that the duties of the
office, which are of great importance to the public,
wilt be promptly and properly discharged, under
his 'administration, and in such a manner as to pre
vent uni.ecessary delay and expense on the part of
prosecutors and nliers, and to expedite the proceed
ings in Court. Mr M. possesses a good reputaticn
at the par, and the confidence and esteem of the
coin mutt ity.
STUART SMILgY, of Franklin, the candidate
for County Commissioner was a promhient candi
date fur the nomination last fall, and the strong
claims he has for the support of the party, was ac
knowledged by the flattering vote he received on
Tuesday evening. We takes pride in referring to
his niminiation—a pride which arises from a know
ledge of ills wo thiness as a mart, and his capacity
lin the office fur which he has been named. The
office of County County Commissioner is one of no
secondary importance. The voters of the County,
have no officer to select, whose competency should
be so closely examined. The interests of the lax•
payers has become of immense importance, and
the busine-s now transacted in the Commissioner's
office, of in .re mnottude and responsibility than
most of our people are aware. Mr. SMILLY is en
tirely qualdied to meet every emergency which
may arise, while his inieginy and sound judgment
are conceded. lie will prove a worthy co-adjutor
with the present efficient and economical Board.
• The nomination for Treasurer, appeals at once to
public support. No man in Bradford County, is
more thoroughly indentified in feeling with the peo
ple—the tax-payers—the bone and sinew of the
County—than NELSON GILBERT, of South To
wanda. Brought op to a life of toil, schooled by
stern necessity to habits of economy.and frugality—
his sympathies are with those who derive their sus
tenance by the sweat of the blow. Honest and un
yielding in his tivvotion to the tight, the public fi
nances can be safely entrusted to his care. Possess
ed of more than ordinary energy, and .'the strictest
integri y, the able mlnagemernt of the past tew
fears, will not be intermitted by him. If devotion
to the Democratic party—if years of labor, in sea
son and out of season, i its soppott—under mis
lortune a+ wvil as prosperity—entitle a man to the
cordial support of the party—NWON GILBERT will
receive vote not surpassed by any candidate upon
The nomina'inn for County Surveyor was be
stowed upon JAMES A PAINE, of Franklin, who
has the reputation of being a corrostent and Willful
Democrat, and admirably qualified , to perlorm the
duties of i!ie office fur which he has been named,
being possessed, by education and experience, of
the particular knowledge necessary to give public
satisfaction . as a Surveyor.
The office of Auditor is one of great importance
T o the tax-payers of the County. If its duties are
performed in a careless manner, many abuses
might creep in, where there is an annual expendi
ture of so many thousands of dollars. The person
selected for Auditor should be possessed of integri
ty, decision and judgment, and WI familiar with
the details of our County business. All these ne
cessary roalifications are.c9rnbined it CULLEN F
NICHOLS, of Burlington, to whom the nomination
has been given. Mr. N. is a young man, of good
abilities and education, and admirably fitted for the
satisfactory discharge of the duty of auditing the ac-
counts of our County.

DEPLORABLE CA:=UALTT.--A most melancholy oc
currence took place at Monroeton, on Fiaturday
evening lard, which has brought the deepest gloom
upon the community, and the profoundest regret up.
on all the parties concerned. As the matter wilibe
derided upon in a legal manner, we shall cuu:ent
ourselves with a mere mention of the circumstan
ces, which is, that NELSON WARFORD was almost
instantly killed by a blow on the neck, from Joni;
41ssielw. Mr. 11. immediately delivered
up, end gave bail for his appear,ance attoon. This
occurrence is the more to be regretted, as both pit.-
ties have the reputation of being - peaceable and ei
eMplary members of community; and affords a
warning to those who penult. themselves in Wail
guarded moment to commit a-breach of the peace.
The Convention of our Whig friends assembled
in the Court ifouie on Wednesday evening, to go
through the . form ornominating a CMinty tieket 'to
be beiten at the next election. Somewhat anxious
to Witness itrifirocedings, we attendid it, and wore
unipliaepaid.. for our time and troubliik

HOLCOMB to the chair, and electing two secretaries.

credentials. The ina}citity of the- untaa i were ap

delegates, and after repented unqtrirtes Yesprinses

Being now in woiking order, a motion was made
and carried to proeeed with the nominations for
Representatives, and our neighbor Palmas, of the
Argus, ZRBULON FRIONA:, of Orwell, and Josue A.
Comma, of Pike, were -ironed out. Upon the first
ballot, E. A PARSONS wee nominated by an almost
unanimous vote, and the Convention proceeded to
a sennnd vote, which resulted in the nomination of
The remainder of the business of the Convention
was pet formed in a very expeditious manner.—
There seemed to be no dispute about the candidates
who were to be beaten by the Democratic nomi
nees—the only difficulty being to find men who
would "stand the fire." One delegate - says, ".l
move you, Mr Chairman, that Paccerroa Formes,
of Rome, be nominated as the candidate for Trea
surer, by accilamation"—carried, nem. eon. Anoth
er moved that 0 H. P. Kirrnev, of Shersheqoin, be
nominated for Prosecuting Attorneyrin like man
ner, against which there was no objection.
The remaining nominations were moved and car
ried in a similar manner—the nomination of Com
missioner being allotted to D. Kru.nco, of Mon
roe; County Surveyor to Z F. WALKER, of Athens,
and Auditor to Exits Hoicriste, of Leßoy. At this
stage of the proceedings we left, charmed with the
harmonious action of our opponents, and the want
of strife far office apparent in their ranks.
One mutter, however, was a subject of considera
ble cariosity to as, and for which we in vain asked
for information. We observed that several dale
gates to this Convention of " Simon pare" Whigge
ry, were also delegates to the Temperance Con ven •
don held on Monday evening, and that the most
active and busy outsiders now, were those who had
controlled that Temperance movement. Perhaps
a solution may be found in the adoption by the
Whig Convention of Ztertna Patqsfe, the catli-
Oate of the Temperance Convention for Ropresen•
tative Any Democrat who honestly and conicien
tiongly concurred in the Temperance nominations,
and could have seen the movements and action of
pretended Temperance men in the Whig Conven
tion on Wednesday evening, would be'incredulous

has been made to deceive the Democratic portion

didates for Representatives, were the very man
who were delegates to the 11'hig Convention, and
by whose efforts , and votes the Wbig whom they
had brought into the field two evenings previous
was again nominated as the candidate of the Wliig
Convention. The hypocrisy of the movement is
too apparent to deceive any intelligent man.

success at the polls It is none of our business to
interfere in the domestic arrangements of our op.
ponents; but the esprit du corps leads us to protest
against any of the fraternity being John Rogered in
this manner. The tactics which place the most
meritorious in nomination, only to fill out the ticket,
and centres the exertions and expectations of the
party upon another, is a poor satisfaction, and poor
recompense lor years of pa.ient drudgery.
Negro Hunt at Ntrl:keabarr•
The following account of a recent negro hunt at
Wilkes-Barre, we take from the Luzerne Union, of
Wednesday, 7th inst. ' -
" Ott Saturday morning las: oar town was thrown
into quite an excitement by several deputy United
States marshals making their appearance in our
midst for the purpose of capturing an alleged fugi
tive slave by the name of William Thomas.
"The said Thomas has been airesidenttif Walks
Barre for the last two years and was formerly em
ployed at Hillman's Hotel, until within a shorttime
when he went to the Piumnix on river street. On
me morning of the 3] inst., while engaged in the
dining room, he was approached from behind and
altogether unaware by four or five persons who at
tacked him and attempted to put shackles upon his
arms. He immediately suspected their purpose,
and dashing them from him gave battle, when a
desperate fight ensued, the negro being repeatedly
knocked to the floor and in turn knocked his assail
ants down, until at length being freed from them
tie fled to the river, followed by the officers. On
arriving at the river he plunged in with the inten
lion of swimming to the other side, but found be
could not swim, when he teturtieil within a few
steps of his pursuers and remained in the water.—,
While fleeing and, while in the river be wet' sev
eral limes tired at by the officers, but one of which,
however, took effect, the ball entered the back part
of the head, and making a flesh wound. On being
requested to come out of the water and surrender
himself, he declared his determination to drown
himself rather than be taken as a slave. The offi
cers then gave up further pursuit, and immediately
left town. A warrant was issfued for .their appro.
,hension, but before an officer was found to serve it
'Ley had left.
" Thomas, was taken up and properly cared for
by. his friends:and although terribly wounded and
bruised, we hear he is doing well and will recover."
The gentlemen_wito engaged in this exciting and
rather novel *port, are of the class, we presume,
