Our Democratic friends are re quested weall and supply themselves. sep 28—te. rZr The nada:mons art making a spasmodic effort to animate their drooping and dispirited friends, by as ..suriag them of the election of No vile B. Craig. ‘Vo • do not believe that the blue-nose candidate himself, or any of the old experienced politicians of the party, have the least idea of his success; the reckless false hotels and bold perversions of fact which Craig has, been guilty of, show conclusively that he himself con eiders his chance a desperate one. But it is of course prudent, by some such braggadocia, to keep up the fainting spirits of his friends. Let us turn to a former contest, when parties were in pretty much the same position that they are now, with - 4itis difference, that then the Antimasonic was the most powerful faction of the opposition—nor, the whigs ate believed to have the majority. In 1841, there were three candidetesfor the Senate: Dr. Gaszarn, Democrat, Wni. Little, Whig, and George Darsie, A ntimason. Wm. Little was a pure Whig candidate—or at least, pure sn l far as being un tainted with Antimasonry could make him—and, of COMMIS, did not receive the slightest support from the • Antioursonic faction. Many whigs, although they pre (sired Little, voted for Darsie, because they thought ids nomination was made mom legitimately than that of the whig candidate; and many Whig Masons, know. Darsie to be a member of the Lodge, believed that after the election, be would be a better Whig than An timuon, cart their votes for him. Yet, notwithstand ing these discouraging circumstances, Mr. Lertte re ceived 766 votes. Every person who has any knowl edge of the pelitical feeling of tho Jay, will admit, that Mr. Brackenridge will receive a larger votethan this in tie tent Mau alerse, and, backed as be is by the con ciliatory nomination of a Whig and Anlimasonic Con vention, he will receive a large Antimaxmic vote, for' which an exclusive Whig candidate could have no hope. out even suppose Mr. Brackenridge should get but the Lrert.r. vote, how stands Mr. Craig's prospects then? The most "impudent and ignorant" of his supporters, cannot claim for him a larger vote than that of Mr. Denim, and by referring to the returns it will be seen thattbatgentleman was beaten by the democratic can-, didatein tho county. Dr. Gaszarn received 4317,and Darsie 4267-47 votes less than the democratic candi date. Such was the result in 1841; and when they could sot then elect their candidate, with all the force of party centered upon him, and aided by a large Whig support, how preposterous is it to talk of success, when hundreds of Antimasons who then voted. their ticket, are now united with the whigs.— No one doubts but that Mr. Brackenridgo's vote in the two cities will exceed Mr. Little's whole vote in 1841, nor that he will receive a large vote throughout the county. Yet with the facts before them, that we hare stated, the blue-nose leaders are attempting to "gull tile simples" in their party,by talking of the chance of electing the Antimasouic candidate: ALL RiADY.—During the past week some cf our friends from almost every township in the county have called at our office to get a supply of tickets, and they all give the most encouraging assurances of a splendid triumph of the democrats throughout the county.— They are all ready, and feel confident that they will give the coons the greatest dusting that ever they received lathe county. =Dr. HAYS has contradicted a rumor to die ef feCt that if elected Sheriff he would appoint members of his own family to the subordinate stations about the of fice. The Doctor's word ought to be sufficient to, put down this rumor, but we had other reasons to suppose , it to be untrue. If we are rightly informed, a gentle men who will shortly go out of a good fat office at the Court House, and another who is very actively enga ged id electioneering for the Antimasonie candidate,are I to receive the richest favors that the office can bestow. But there is no danger that there will be any heart buntings as to th t appointment of the Doctor's depu ties; the Democrats will save him that trouble, and we would, with a sincere feeling for their welfare advise dame who are waiting to take office under him, to look out for some other business, as we can assure them that the Doctor won't appoint them. We received this in formation confidentially and are not at liberty to give geeemthority, but on next Tuesday the reasons will be wok public. rH. M.

TICKETS The persons who received their pay in orders were requested to rise, and they appeared to be about oat-- third' of the whole number present. Every statement made by any one of the narrators, received the prompt corroboration of those who took a leas active part in the proceedings; and all signified a firm determination to unite in making common cause in the endeavor to pro cure better prices. For this purpose, they confirmed a bill of prices which had been' prepared, the preamble to which contains the following paragmphst— "Regardless of name or sect.a multitude of kulies in this city have resolved to form themselves into a socie ty, to devise measures to raise the downcast and pover ty stricken widow and orphan of our beloved country, to a condition of comfort, by the blessing of God upon their well-directed efforts, which we believe would be the result, if our noble-hearted citizens could but feel that they were as dependent on the toil-worn laborer as the- Inhere, is on them. We cannot believe that the numerous gentlemen of , the city of Boston, who employ women as tailoresses l and semptresses, of every class, will refuse a just com pensation for their labor, to enrich themselves at the expense of the other sex, if they do but realize the a mount of suffering that might be so easily and honora bly prevented." This bill, or tat iff of prices, to which some of the em ployers have given their assent, contains about 150 i tems. For a Ain dress or frock coat, custom work, $3 25—shop work, $3. Pantaloons, custom, 75 cents to $1 25, according to the extra work—pantaloons, for shop, from 50 cents to 92. Plain single-breasted cus torn vests, 75 cents; other kinds, from 87,i cents to $1 25—vests for shops, 90 to 92 cents, according to the work. Shiite, from 17 to 20 cents FEDERALISM RZEOUNCED.-.-WS learn from the St. Clairsville Gazette, that Mr. Duggins, Editor of the Preble Register, has, in a long address, renounced the coon party, with which he has acted for years, and hoisted the Democratic Banner, and changed the name of his paper to that of "The Eaton Democrat." The way be uses up the coon frauds, lies, &c. is a caution to all airmen! DRUNKENNESS AND DREADFUL DEATH.—We learn from the Carbondale (Pa.) Gazette, that a shocking death occurred aboutfour miles below that village, on Sunday, the 20th instant. Two men were driving riously towards Carbondale in a drunken frolic, when one of them, named Gallagher, fell from the wagon and caught his head in the wheel in such a manner that he received a blow from every spoke as it passed round. The jugular vein was severed, and the face frightfully mutilated. The survivor was fined for drunkenness and Sabbath breaking. . TAB NEGROCOLON TOP MARYLAND.—The expedi tion sent out by the Maryland Colonization Society to Cape Palmas, on the African coast is expected to sail 1 on the first of November. The society promises the blacks resident in Maryland, (none others are entitled to the privilege) that it will take such as are willing to emigrate, “bag and baggage, from their own doors, and defray all necessary expenses of their transportation to Baltimore; will pay their expenses while in the city; will put them with all their effects on ship-board; will provide them with good spacious berths and fixtures; will supply them with good wholesome provisions for the passage, and will land them and their effects, pas sage free, at Cape Palmas." When they reach the Cape they will be furnished with a good dwelling for six months, and supplied gratuitously during that time with food and necessaries, including medical attend ance. Each male adult, or head of a family, is to re ceive on his arrival agrant of five acres of good land adjoining the land of the old settlers. The last cargo of emigrants to the Maryland colony was more than a hundred. The colony is prosperous, and the last intel ligence represented the inhabitants as being healthy, and provisions alma dant. SURE ENOUGH, WHY NOTE — Sam Slick in his last work, propounds the following query: "If a feller can't be ht shake hands witlfa girl except he has a glove on, why ain't he made to cover his lips, and kiss through kid skin too?" LESSON or NVlSDOM. — Washington correspondent of the Journal of Commerce thus advises: "If uny of your young men seek office this way, tell them in the words ofGen. Jackson, 'lf lhad a son, I would soon er send him with an axe on his shoulder, to cut his way through the forest, than give hint an office here.' This was said when thousands of offices were at his disposal." The Savannah Georgian states that Dr. Rich ard Wayne of that city, was recently shot by a ruffian named Farrelly, and without the slightest cause. The injury was not serious, and the villain has been arrest ed. Lake Trout, brought in ice, from one hundrec miles west of Plattsburgh, were selling in Wall street New York, on Wednesday, to the epicures, at eigh teen cents the pound. MAINE ELEcr toN.—According to the Portland Argus, 322 towns give Anderson 272 majority—and the towns and plantations remaining to be heard from last year gave Fairfield 1500 majority. They will pro bably do as well now—and we may therefore consider Anderson elected by some fifteen hundred majority over all. i"The Superintendent of the Sing Sing prison states that on the 27th ult., there were 843 convicts within the walls; 766 of whom are males and 77 fe males; 28 have been discharged during the month; 21 of whom had served out their term of senteece, and 7 have been pardoned by the Governor. T. 'az hitssocaiss.--Gen. Vs:: As 'mutt', late of the "lowa Reporter," has purchased the establishment of the St. Louis Standard and commenced the publica tion of a paper bearing the above title.

Spaulding was twice struck in the head with a piece of iron by one of the men set to keep guard about the tent, and his skull beaten in.— He lingered, however, till Sunday night, when he died, leaving a wife and three children to mourn his loss. The savage deed caused intense excitement at Canaan; a large bady of, the eithens armed themselves with guns, and hurried to the scene of the murder, and sev eral individuals connected with the menagerie were arrested. No clue to the gather of the murder had been &eamed. It is said, however, that two of the men who were in the employ of Messrs. Raymond & Co., have fled. Dusr.Litte.—Associalios at Nest, Orleans.—The New Orleans Bee says, a society is about being estab li,bed in New Orleans - for the avowed riurpose of array ing against the practice of duelling, the influence of a well directed, efficient and wholesome public opinion. Legislation it says, cannot extirpate it, as it is intimately blended with the feelings and sense of the citizen: and laws too severcand utterly repugnant to the sentiments of the communtty for which they have 1c..-on formed, are foyer enforced. The society is to beheaded says the Bee, by a number of our most respectable townsmen,—many of whom hove proved their valor on the field of honor, and are thereforo well fitted to become leaders in the philan throiic enterprise. One of the objects is t' engraft on the code of honor, the established practice in France, that where an insult has been offered, the aggrieved party shall have the choice of arms, the reverse being the case new. Also, that where the insult has been pushed to the extremity of a blow, the further privilege of the first shot is to be accorded to the insulted indi vidual, in the event of the selection of arms. THE THOTTIYG MATCH—PIZARIIO Boston Post of the 30th says, that the match for a purse of $lOO came of on the Cambridge trottin T course yes terday afternoon. Four horses entered; Pizarro took the first heat easy in 2m 3.55., but the Lady Susan, or "blind mare," name up within two lengths of P. The second heat Pizarro had all his own way; time 2m. 3045. On the third heat Pizaaro was closely pressed for three•- quarters of a mile, but fur the last quarter he kept the lead steadily, and came in in 2m 37ii. There were quite a number of gentlemen from New York on the ground. No accident occurred ; and every th;ng went off regularly. MANtIiACTURES IS CANADA.-TllO Montreal Her ald states that two enterprising gentlemen from the U. States ure erecting buildings for an extensive manu factory in the Charnherly District. They cannot well avoid making the business highly lucrative. It is found that in the coarser kind of Cotton goods manufactures from the United States already crowd out the British from the Canadian market. The duty in favor of the British article is only 7 per cent., and this does not meet the expenses attending two freights, the first of Cotton to England and the second of thr rods back again. Even at the high price of labor (from $2 to $3 per week) in the United Stacey, the Cotton Manufac ture for the Canadian market is found to be profitable. How greatly this will be increased when the labor is done in Canada may be conjectured from the fact sta ted by the Herald that in that province thousands work frr as little as two dollars per moiellt, and are well satisfied to get that! e'The Northern papers =peak in thehighest terms of Wm. B. FOSTER, Jr. and repel with warmth the in 4inuations which some of the most unprincipled of the federal journals have dared to utter against him. Mr. Foster's worth as a citizen, and abilities as a public ' officer, are more intimately known in the northern than in any other part of the state. It is there wherehe has been principally employed, and the excellence of his character has mado him a general favorite with the people. We are assured he will poll the largest vote in that region, that has ever been given at any state el ection. RT. REV. Da. OVONNOII.—The Cork Examiner says:—"We feel peculiarly gratified in being enabled to inform out fellow citizens that a towannan of ours, the Rev. Michael O'Connor, D. D., boo been appointed first bishop of the new ice of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, and that he was tohave been consecrated in the church of the Irish College, Rome, on the Feast of the Assutnih. tion, last month.

DEMOLISHING TOLL GATES.—The Cleveland Her states that the gates on the Wooster Turnpike be wean that city and Medina county have all been de stroyed by the "sovereign people," and we notice by the State Journal that the gates on the Columbus and San dusky t urnpike between Columbus and Delaware have also been demolished, and near Columbus the toll house as well as the gate. From the V. Y. Tribune. OPTHG EPTSeOPAL CONVENTION', IloW in session, at St. Paul's church took I decisive vote yesterday after noon on the exciting question involved in the "Pusey" Controversy. Judge OAKLEY had offerod the' follow ing resolutions: Whereas, it appears that a doubt exists as to the true construction of the rubric which directs that in the ordination of a candidate for orders in the church the Bishop shall call on the people, to make known the existence of any impediment to such ordination, wheth er any Presbyter in the church has a right to respond to such call, as one of the people—and whether in case any impediment be alleged, and the sante has under gone a previous investigation upon a private complaint, and has been determined by the Bishop to be linfound od. it is, or is not, the duty of the Bishop to suspend such ordination, Therefore, for the purpose of solving such doubt, Resolved, That the delegates from this diocese to the general convention be requested to bring the subject to the notice of that body, that such action may be had thereon as may seem meet. Resolved, That the delegates from this diocese to the general convention of the church be requested to propose, fur adoption, to that body, at its next meeting, a canon which shall, in substance, provide, that when the Pishop shall receive, from any two presbyters, ob jections, in writing, to the ordination of any candidate for orders in the church—notice of the time and place of the examination of such candidates ahull be riven to such presbyters, who shall thereupon have the right tc be ptesent at, and take part in, such examination; and that, for the avoidance of any misunderstanding or mis take, all questions put to such candidate, and the an swers made by him, shall be reduced to writing. They were sustained very ably in a somewhat ex tended debate, of which the Hon. Jou?' DUER main tained a very prominent part. Their passage was urged on grounds entirely disconnected with the par ticular case which gave rise to the controversy, namely the ordination of Mr. Carey. Judge Oakley said he had not made up his mind fully as to the issues involved; but that one point was very evident—namely that there was room for great difference of opinion as to the right or propriety of presbyter's interposing objections to candidates for ordination when the Bishop calls for such objections from the people; and he said that the reso lutions were intended to provide for the removal of this difference. It was necessary that the question should be definitely settled. The opponents of the resolutions contended that, whatever might have been the intention of the mover, the resolutions did in fact express a deci ded censure of the conduct of the Bishop in admitting Mr. Carey to ordination; and on that ground they main ly based their opposition. A motion was made to re fer the resolutions to a committee. - This was nega tived by a vote of 13 ayes to 10 nays, from the clergy, and 35 ayes to 53 nays from the laity. The was thou taken on the adoption of the resolutions and decided in the negative, as follows: clergy: 18 ayes, 97 nays: laity 35 ayes, 53 nays—total 53 ayes to 150 noes. This will probably end the discussion of the matter at the present Convention.

Scott, pre vinus to her departure on yesterday evening, was sent by the engineer into one of the wheelhouses to turn the engine of the centre. As soon as he did so ho was told to get out of the way. Instead of stepping back on the beam abaft of the wheel, he got on one side, be tween the wheel and the inside bulkhead of the boat, where there is not room for a man to stand, clear of the buckets. The consequence was, one of the buck ets struck him and severed one of his legs from the bodynt the thigh. The leg remained on board, and the man fell into the river. He rose once and clung to the wheel, which was stopped, fur a ectind—lte th 2n sunk to rise no more. His name was Jacob Fry.—..V 0. Tropic. THE PUBLIC LANDS, The following striking view of this important sob ject presented by Mr. EVCHIS AN, must appeal with grt'ntfciree to every intetigent mind and patriotic heart: "Tree, this wits a great, a magnificent inheritance; and though the Senator was anxious to give it away, he could not be more severe in his conviction that this was wise policy, than he (Mr. B.) was that it would prove dangerous and destructive. Without the lands what would be our condition in the event of a war with Great Britain or any other great naval power? Much of our commerceOwould be driven from the ocean. and our rev. enue ditties, would consequently cease. In such a mo ment ofdanger, where would be our resort? Could we then expect much aid from the States, whose citizens were already tatted as much, almost, as they could bear? Whilst this land fund is preserved by the generalgeyero meat, he repeated, we could at any time, raise fifty limns of dollars on the faith of its pledge. In the hour of danger, when duties could not be collected, the pub lic domain would be a sure resource for the relief and defence of the country. He believed it ought never to be surrendered. He knew it had been said that the distribution law would cease to operate, by its own terms, in time of war. But it would revive again on the conclusion of peace; and therefore, you could never pledge the fund for the payment of a debt contracted either to prepare for war, or to conduct it to a successful issue. All that you could 'obtain, would be only the receiptsfrom land sales during the actual continuance of the war." MACREADY. No one can say but that Macready, began at the first round of the ladder, after reading what "Osher ry's Budget" says of his primal essay in the art which is now his profession: The first part enacted by Ma cready, was Dame Ask*lel, in MORTON'S comedy of "Spted the Plough." This wad during his school boy days at . Rughby, where he was educated.
