Democratic Electoral Ticket.
The following is the regular Democratic elec
{oral ticket formed by the Reading Convention.
As there are spurious tickets in circulation,
Democrats should be careful to compare their
tickets with this before voting :
Sectionalism—Lincoln the Candidate of a
Sectional Minority.
The Republicans profess to see great danger
from throwing the election into the House of
Representatives. The only danger from such
an event would be the defeat of LINCOLN, which,
however gelling to sectionalism, would be grati
fying to every national men in the country who
loves the whole Union better than any part of
If Lincoln should obtain a. majority of elec- ‘
total votes on TueS'lay next, he will become
the President. not only of one section of the
Union, but also of a minority of the voters of
the country. If a President of the United
States was to be chosen by a- direct vote of the
people, there would not now be the most remote
prospect of Lincoln’s election. The citizens
of the Southern States will vote against him in
3 solid body; while in the North he will have
arrayed against him a very large minority of
the people. In the aggregate, the sum-ages of
the citizens of the United States will be against
him. It is not likely that. he can obtain the
votes of more than one-third of the whole peo
ple; and yet under the forms of the Constitu
tion he may be elected President of the United
For this reason, there is no form of govern
ment upon earth where sectionalism is more to
he dreaded, and more dangerous in its consc
quences, than in these United States. It is
possible for a. minority of the people to choose
I President in defiance of the wishes of the
majority, who will administer the government
contrary to their interests and wishes.
This evil was foreseen by the founders of
the government, who warned the people against
the growth of sectional parties. Parties or
ganized upon any other basis did not occasion
apprehension, because, when difi‘used over
every section of the country, they created a
bond of union rather than antagonism and con
sequent weakness ; but a party confined to one
section of the country, and deriving its strength
and vigor from opposition to the interests of
another section, was one of the calamities
against which Washington solemnly warned his
countrymen in his Farewell Address. This he
{oresaw as the rock upon which this Union
might split; and huddle been aprophet he could
nothave described with more accuracy this sec
tional Republican party.
Is it surprising that the Southern States,
whose interests are defied by the Republican
party, should murmur at the inauguration of
an administration obtaining power by reason
of its hostility to rights which they deem sa
cred? Can any man wonder that the Southern
States should feel as if they were outside of the
government when a President is set over them ‘
ngainst whom they unanimously protest ? ‘
Suppose for one moment that the case was
reversed ; that the united South had a majority
of the electoral votes; that. they should com
bine to elect a President pledged to the dis“.
sion of slavery throughout all the States—and
that the North opposed and protested against
this policy of forcing upon them a sectional
ruler. Would we say that it was all right ‘2—
Would we submit without a murmur to South—
ern aggression? 0n the contrary, would not
we seek to secure our rights against the threat- ‘
ened danger. and earnestly-protest against such
a perversion of the spirit of the Constitution?
Would we not look upon the election of a sec
tional President, by a minority of the people,
as an outrage, aud'would we not- be agitated
and excited as much as the South now is?
Talk about the danger of throwing the elec
tion of President into the House! The mo
ment that is accomplished the danger is past.
{the people wouldthen feel assured that no see
tional candidate could possibly be elected, and
flat whether Breckinridge, Douglas or Bell be
me President, he would have the support of
Northern and Southern men, and administer
the government upon national principles.
Am ran GABIBALDI—An agent of Garibaldi
has arrived inJamaica, endeavoring to obtain
Subscriptions to the work of Italian independ—
ence. There is much feeling in 'favor of the
Liberator, and the movement is general
throughout the Islam].
From the Baltimore Exchange.
The star ot‘Garibuldi is once more in the as
cendont. He has not only cost himself loose
from all afi‘ilintion with the Mezzinian faction,
but he has gloriously retrieved his partial de
feat at Caserta by a. signal victory on the banks
of the Volturno. Capua, indeed, still holds
out, and the port of Gaeta, which is silo occu
pied by the loyalists, continues to offer to the
fugitive King an outlet of escape Whenever his
posltion becomes nolonger tenable. The offen
sive movement by which he sought. to recover
possession of his Capital was wisely planned
and ably executed. The loyalists were thirty
thousand strong, whilst. the entire force of the
Goribaldians did not. number more than fifteen
thousand; and of these. as the event proved,
the Sicilian and Neapolitan recruits Were not
to be depended upon. ‘* They made a. great
deal of noise,” says an eye-witness, “ but they
showed but little stomach for fighting.” The
positions held by the troops of the Liberator
were also week when compared with those
around Caplla. If these were forced there was
nothing to prevent the young King from re-en
tering Naples in triumph.
5 For several hours after the battle commenced
the fortunes of the day were in his favor. The
' Garibaldians were driven from the heights they
; occupied; a battery defending one of [he most
‘ important. points was captured and spiked, and
but for the personal daring of Garibaldi, and
the extraordinary exertions which were made
by his chief officers, the courage of his troops
would have given way under the tremendous
fire to which they were exposed, and the con
stant reinforcements that the enemy received
from Capua. The reserves on both sides were
brought into action, and so closely was the
battle contested, that there were times when it
seemed almost impossible to prevent the Nea
politans from hearing down all opposition. As
it was, the final result of the conflict amounted
to nothing more, on the part of the Garibaldi
ans, than the re-capture of the positions which
they had lost early in the day. The N eapoli—
tans, though driven back, had evidently not yet
lost all hope of success, for the next mprning
they made a desperate attack upon Caserta, the
head-quarters of Garibaldi—captured by sur
prise the barracks and some adjacent houses,
and might have succeeded in holding the town
and in clearing the road to Naples had not the
Piedmontese troops in garrison at Naples
promptly respomlccl to the call of Garibaldi.
The arrival by rail of these fresh and well
disciplined soldiers, speedily changedthe aspect
of afi'airs. In a. brief space of time the ~Nea
politans were routed. A part of them flying in
the direction of Madaloni were attacked and
scattered by the volunteers who held that post
under Bixio, and some prisoners were made.—
Five hundred others surrendered to the Pied
montese, and two battalions whilst retreating
eastwardly towards the river were intercepted
by the Brigade Saulis and captured almost to a
man. The remainder being out oil” from
returning to Capua took to the mountains. A
diversion in favor of the latter was attempted
the following day, but met with no success.—
So that of the five thousand men who surprised
and nearly carried Caserta on the morning of
the 2d of October, not more than afew hundred
succeeded in rte-entering Capua. As three
thousand Neapolitans are reported to have been
placed 11.07.? du combat in the battle of Volturno,
they must have lost in that engagement and
in those of the two subsequent day, including
the twenty-five hundred prisoners taken by the
Garibaldians and the troops dispersed among
the mountains, not far short. of eight thou—
sand men. Yet, in spite of all these losses,
the Neapolitans are so strongly fortified within
their lines at Capua, that Garibaldi has found
it necessary to call upon Sardinia for assist
ance. '
It is, perhaps, a fortunate circumstance for
Italy that the Dictator has received this tem
porary check in his career of conquest. He
has learned, by the reverse which he sustained
at Caserta on the 19th of September, and by
the loss of the strong position at Cajazzo—
which he has not been able to recover—and
still more by the changing fortunes of the bat
tle of Volturno—so hardly contested and finally
won with so much difliculty—how dangerous it
is to place implicit reliance upon mere valor
and enthusiasm, when opposed by troops supe
rior in numbers; by no means deficient in con
rage and tenacity of purpose, and altogether
better disciplined than his own. The lesson
has not been thrown away. He has accepted
—perhaps reluctantly, but loyally neverthe
less—the more prudent and circumspect policy
of Csvour. He has consented to abandon his
own cherished scheme of assaulting Austria in
her Venetian strongholds, and of humiliating
‘ the Roman Pontifl' by battering down the gates
of Rome. He has done even more than this.
He has yielded to the wishes of the Italian
population for immediate annexation to Sar
dinia, and by inviting Victor Emmanuel to repair
in person to Naples, for the purpose of taking
charge of the affairs of that Kingdom, he has
‘ virtually surrendered his authority as Dictator
to the monarch in whose name he has so nobly
fought the battle of Constitutional liberty.
With the re-establishment of a complete accord
between Garibaldi and the Sardinian Govern
ment, all doubts as to the future of Italy may
he said to have been dispelled.
Count Cavour has triumphed, but the tri
umph of the great soldier of Liberty has not
been less signal, for he has achieved a conquest
over himself, and at the height of his power
has subordinated his own prejudices to the will
of his King and to the good of his country.
The volunteers and the troops of Sardinia will,
henceforth, fight shoulder to shoulder, if more
fighting is yet. to be done. Cialdini is already
on the march from the Roman frontier to co
operate With the Garibaldians in the reduction
of Capua; but the battle of Volturno must
have admonished Francis 11. that his last
stake has been played and lost, and that any
further attempt to defend a position which is
now threatened on all sides would result in a
wanton sacrifice of life. Victor Emmanual has ‘
already entered Naples. Ten days ago the
Sicilians were called upon to register their
votes for or against annexation to Piedmont,
and the only territories now remaining, which
are not embraced within the present scope of
the Italian movement, are Venetia, and that
portion of the Papal States which is known as
“ The Patrimony of St. Peter.” For these,
Cavour is content to wait, and he has confi
dently intimated that he will not have to wait
LETTER FROM Mn. BBchlxninaE.—~The Ma
rion (Alan) Commonwealth contains the follow—
ing letter from Mr. Breckinridge in correction
of certain statements respecting his recent trip
in the mountain region of Kentucky:
LEXINGTON, (Ky.,) Oct. 15.

been making stump speeches in Kentucky, and
do not intend to do so. My speech at Ash-lend,

corrections made, that I have ceased to notice
them; but I thank you for the friendly mter—

Rmmnxnnnn SUICIDE IN Pants—A very
singular suicide recently occurred in Paris, ac
cording to a correspondent of a New York pa
per ; the victim being a lady in comfortable
circumstances, and arrived at the ripe age of
seventy-three years! A nephew of this old
lady, employed in a business establishment. in
the quarter of Montmartre, received, by the
post, a letter conceived in the following terms:
“ My dear nephew: When you receive this
letter i shall have ceased to exist! Atmy age
to commit suicide seems a singular idea, 1 ad
mit. I have passed my seventy-third birth—
day, and 1 have always been happy. But I
feel that the hand of infirmity is about. to be
laid upon me, and I wish to avoid it. Of what
use to me would be a few remaining years of
life if they are to he passed in wretched bodily
sufferings? You are my only relative and
universal legatee. l’ropriety will doubtless
induce you to shed a tear for me, but confess
frankly that you will not profoundly regret my
demise. It will place you in possession of a
snug fortune, and give your family a comfort
able position.
“All my affairs are in order, and you will
find the papers in the hand of my notary.—
The only obligations I desire to impose upon
you are these: First, not to sell my house, but
to retain it for yourself and descendants. Sec
ond, to publish, in my name, two volumes,
one of poetry and the other a novel, of which
lam the author. You will find the manuscripts
in my desk. If you cannot obtaiu'a publisher,
print. them at your own cost. lam sure you
will not hesitate to make this trifling sacri
fice to my memory, and you will be grate
ful to me for thus permitting you to enjoy my
heritage some time sooner than you had ex
pected. . You see lam a good hearted creature.
Show yourself worthy of so kind an aunt.”
The recipient of this extraordinary docu—
ment immediately hastened to his aunt's resi
dence, and found that the old lady had as
phyxiated herself by means of the fumes of
» EDITORIAL CONFLICT—High Words and Df7‘lf3.
Two editors recently indulged in a fight at Sa—
vannah (Md) The origin of the difficulty was
polities. The Savannah Plaindealer of Satur
day, 20th inst, was severe and bitter in its
remarks towards the editor of the Democrat,
and early in the morning Mr. Whitaker, the
editor of the Plaz'na’ealer, filled his arms with
mail matter and started for the post ofiice.—
Some obstruction in the doorway of the post
office caused him to look in at the window of
the post ofliee, and while so doing, and when
loaded down with mail matter, Mr. Weich made
an assault upon him from behind. Whitaker
was somewhat surprised, being ignorant of the
presence of his antagonist, and did not know
who his assailant was until he had been struck
two or three times, when he turned upon
Weleh. Whitaker dropped his mail upon the
pavement and drew a. pistol, but owing to his
proximity andhis antagonist being on his back,
he was unable to use it. Welch got hold of
the pistol and endeavored to wrest it from
Whitaker, when the barrel broke loose from
the stock. Whitaker then drew a. dirk knife,
with a backward stroke struck the point of the
weapon upon the upper‘front button of Mr.
Welch’s pantaloons. The bystanders quickly
interfered before Whitaker had time to knife
his opponent. Mr. Welch certainly narrowly
escaped with his life, for had the knife pene
trated his abdomen, where Whitaker seems to
have aimed it, it would have been a fatal and
sad blow.
the Cushion of am. Editor's Chain—Now that, Mr.
Thackeray has got a magazine, says the Lon
don Critic, he is determined that nothing he has
done shall be wasted. The “Roundabout Pa
per” is, undoubtedly, the best of the editor’s
contributions, because the freshest and most
suited to the feelings of the moment. In the
present one he dwells upon the griefs of editor
ship. “The Thorns in the Cushion” of the
editor’s chair. There is the sad pleading letter
begging for employment for charity’s sake, and
accompanying the weak effusions that are quite
useless. What editor has not received such,
and has not been compelled to return the inev
itable answer? Now you see what I mean by
a thorn. Here is the case put with true female
logic: “I am poor; lam good; lam ill; I
work hard; I have a sick mother and hungry
brothers and sisters dependent on me. You can
help us if you will.” And then I look at the
paper, with the thousandth part of afaint hope
that it may be suitable, and I find it won’t do;
and I knew it wouldn’t do; and why is this
poor lady to appeal to my pity, and bring her
poor little ones kneeling to my bedside, and
calling for bread, which I can give them if I
choose 2 N 0 day passes but that argument ad
vizisericordiam is used. Day and night that sad
voice is crying out- for help. Thrice it appealed
to me yesterday. Twice this morning it cried
to me ; and, I have no doubt, when I go to get
my hat, I shall find it, with its piteons face and
its pale family about it, waiting for me in the
hall. One of the immense advantages which
women have over our sex is, that they actually
like to read these letters. Like letters? oh,
mercy on us! Before I was an editor I did not
like the postman much—but now?
The New York Express of Monday evening
saysz—“The once gay and gallant ‘Beau Hick
man.’ who figured so conspicuously in Wash
ington City for many years, noted particularly
for his politeness to members of Congress and
others who would pay handsomely for being
shown the elephant of Washington and various
others cities to which he might be invited to
accompany political celebrities, was arrested
last Monday morning by detective Wilson,
charged with having perpetrated some confi
dence swindle on a gentleman living about
Abingdon Square. The particulars of the
transaction ware not ascertained by our reporter
up to 12 o’clock, the officers up to that time
being absent in search ot‘ the complainant.
Beau was taken to police headquarters and de
tained to await further progress in the case.
During the absence of the officers arresting
him, Beau was very anixous to go to the
Metropolitan Hotel to call on some gentleman
from Washington, whom he wished to aid in
extricating him from his present difficulties;
but he was not allowed to depart. Hickman,
evidently, is now on the wane, as his personal
appearance fails to indicate him to be in the
full tide of success.

nun IxsnnAncn Commune—A large number of
insurance companies of the North have estab

large business. We are pleased to learn that
some of our leading mercantile houses have de.
termined tochange their insurers. 0n yester.
day a. firm that has $25,000 insured in four cam
ponies located at Hartford, Conn., one of the
policies having expired, took out a, new policy
in a. Southern insurance company. They have
determined, as soon as their policies expire,
which will be within a few days, to insure al
together in Southern companies. We under
stand there are agencies of six or seven relia
