The Flection.
The [news from this Congressional dis
trict loaves it uncertain whether Wright or
(Fuller is elected, for wo have conflicting re
ports from Luzerne. In Montour county,
Fuller's majority will be 1250, in Columbia
Wright's wll be 650. In Columbia and
Montour Buekalews majority will be about
550, and that of M'Reynolds about 200.
Staley, the Commissioner on the repeal tick
et is elected by a large majority. As many
of the Whigs in Columbia voted for Buck
alew and M'Reynolds, they threw all thoir
force to trude votes for Thomson tho volun
teer Whig, and he is elected by a small ma
We cannot regard this as a personal defeat,
but alone as the disaster of that parly which
made the nomination. Treason like this to
mens political faith in their party organiza

throw of their political principles, if such
men can be said to have any principles.
This system of gneirilla warfare commen

.Whigs, with the help of pretended Demo
crats, elected a volunteer candidate over the
ragular nominee of the Democratic party for
Register aud Recorder. Hero was a suffi
cient encouragement in disorganization, to
the Whigs for a second trial. So last year
hey played their card adroitly and elected
a Whig member of tho Legislature in Col
umbia county. This year they are success
ful in effecting still further disorganization;
and as on the election night, when the re
turns were coming in, over-heard a Whig,
■with the fumes of h ; s revelry giving strong
er stench to his utterance, exclaim—"Well
by G—d, at that rate we'll have tite next

Democratic majority in that Democratic
county is only a thing of acci'ueut. Demo

marked by Whigs, and. treacherously sacri
ficed by false Deiuo.crats, until everything
like political piinuiple is forgotten in the
.heat of personal animosities.

The Double Execution ut New Haven.
PALLADIUM OFFICE, N. Haven, Oct. 2, 12,
M.—At 11 o'clock this foreuoou, Henry be
amier Foote and James McCaffrey were ex
ecuted iu tho jail yard Now Haven, the first
for the murder of a young girl named Emily
Cooper, and the second for tho murder of
Mrs. Anne Smith, on the East Rock, near
this city. Mrs. Smith's husband was also
killed at the same time, and it is supposed
by the same hand.
Religious services were had in the prison
ers' cells at an early hour. Boih prisoners
expressed contrition, hut McCaffrey deniod
hi s guilt to the last.
They were brought out of their cells at
ten minutes before 11 o'clock, attended by
the clergy—McCaffrey by the Rev. Mr. O'
Reilly, Catholic. He said nothing to the
spectators, but continued to ejaculate
"Oh, God!" ''Oh, Christ,'' etc. About
11, Sheriff Parmilee Meppod on the spring of
the drop, and instantly both persons were
suspended by the nock. McCaffrey died
with hardly a s ruggle, but Foote suffered
more, the noose of tho rope slipping around
towards tho back of (lie neck. After a few
minutes of hard struggles, however, all was
over with liim. They are yet hanging upon
| the scaffold.
Row omoi.g the Whigs of N. York.
We learn from the Now Yotk papers, that
after the Syracuse Whig Slate Convention
passed a resolution endorsing lire course pur
sued by Senator Seward, during the present
session of Congress, on the slavery question,
the President of the Convention—the Hon.
Francis Granger—made a speech in which
he dissented from '.lie resolutions, and thon
| resigned iiis scat, and seceded from the Con
vention, followed by tho Secretaries and foi
ty delegates.—They proceeded to a treigb
boiiig Hotel and organized a meeting, at
which Mr. Granger presided.
A committee was appointed to draft an ad
dress, and resolutions for the support of tho
Whigs of the Stato, aud a resolution passed
ordering the proceedings to bo published.
The seceding members, wo learn, resolved
to hold a Convention on the 17th of this

rremendoaa Gold Stories.
Heretofore we have occasionally recor
ded discoveries of lumps of gold. Once we
said something about a mountain, which,
although true to Iho letter, provoked only a
little mirth at our expense. Truth, however,
is mighty. Converts are coming over daily.
The mountain is no longer a fable. Now
we have another weighty fact to record. At
Carson's new diggings, on last Friday, a
chunk ol gold, almost wholly free from
quartz, wfis taken out, weighing forty
pounds ! This fact we have from Col. D. J.
VVoodlief, collector of the foreign taxes for
Cnlaneras county. Carsoi's diggings are
about throe miles from Robison's ferry, On
the Stanislaus on the north side. Who says
the mines are failing?
The same gentleman from whom we ob
tained the information of the forty pound
lump, relnted another instance of fortune of
which the recipient does not complain. It
occurred at Murphy's diggings, for a long
time famed as tho richest in California. A
person by the name of Ashe took out of
ono hole last Friday or Saturday gold to the
amount of $4,000.
An Important Fact.
In the year 1845, whet; the tariff of 1842
was n operation, the exports of this country
front brQodstuffs and provisions, were sHlj
-7-Tj,421. In 1819, when the tariff of 1846
was in operation, they were $38,795,664, or
upwards of $22,000,000 more than in 1845.
These exports are the products of agricu -
ture in the middle and westeru States alone.
—Tlicy tlo not include the gp.lon and tobac
co of the south and other domestic articles,
which amount to the additional sum of $83,-
871,291. This is a full and complete refuta
tion of ali the Whig humbug about the bal
ance of trade and the exportation of spe
cie. The truth is, the balance of trade doc
trine has been shown to be a fallacy by
HUSKISSON, in England, and by WEBSTER in
1816, in America. Every step towards un
fettering commerce in all its branches has
proved decidedly beneficial, and we hope to
see all these badges of federalism finally ob
NEGRO POMP.— The Paris correspondent |
of tlie New York Joirnal of Commerce, in a
late letter, says:
"Amid the displays of Pari* workman

and several swords, in massive gold,
wrought for tho sublimo Kmperor of Hayti,
Faustin I. One of the crowns is surmount
ed by eight eagles, and weighs four pounds ;
the other, of two pounds, is formed of oak
and laurel leaves. The execution of both

thousand francs.
EXTRAVAGANCE — The Npw York Courier
and Enquirer closes an editorial article in
defence of the Gothamites' Litulmania, with
this florid passage :
"Honor, Donor, honor, then we say, to
her who sings like the angels—whose purity
is as stainless as the snow of her own na
tive hills—whose charity droppeth as boun
tifully, and yet as gently, as the dew of
heaven—in genius a St. Cecilia, the idol of
the rich, and in goodness a St. Theresa, the
servant of the poor."'
STILL ANOTHER FIRE occurred at Northum
berland about eight o'clock on Thursday
evening. It broke out in the stable of Capt.
VYm. Forsyth. By tho time this was uearly
reduced to ashes, an alarm was given in an
other quartor. Capt. Lee's stabling, attach
ed to his Hotel, was discovered to bo on fire.
This, too, was burned to the ground. In the
afternoon previous, fire was discovered ir.
Mr. Burr's stable, but it was put out before
any serious injury was done. It is very ev
ident that this is the woik of incendiary.

bout 8 o'clock, on Monday evening last, an
other fire occurred in the borough of North
umberland. It broke out in the stable at
tached to the Hotel of Mr. Peter Hanselman,
opposite the Town Hall, and in a short time
it reached the Hotel and a large dwelling
house in which several fancy stores were
kept by Mrs. McCteland and Miss A. Young

ing 80 bushels of grain, were entirely de
stroyed. These buildings belonged to Mr.
Hanselman, and were insured to the amount
of 81900. It is supposed that this property
