We iiitree *Oh New Yo Times, that it
quite too soon to tell who will be candidates for
President in 1660. "A rea t many important
events may take place between this time and that.
New mattes may arise, and old candidates may
take new positions upon them We Indy have
ware waged or threatened,—we may have sub.
missions to foreign demands advised or made,—
we may have questions of Title, of Currency, of
l'ublic Expenditure, and public honor presented
to our public mon an`cl the country within the
next two years ;—iod men wbo may reem to be
right rind strong now, may prove to he wrong
and weak then Nobody eau tell what a }ear
or r session of Congress, in our bury
may bring forth ;" 4611, as matters stand now—
as parties are at present arrayed, and upon the
issues now before the country, we think it is very
evident the Republican candidate will be Mr.
Sewsnu Who the Democracy will rally around
is n o t an certain. It may be Beekenridge, or it
may be Douglas, ..r it may be, what the past tells
us is not at all unlikely, an entirely new man—
umit one who bu neither the taint of Lecomp.
ton nor toti - Lecompton attached to his shirts
Bat whoever it is, it matters not ; with the plat
form presented to no by Senator Sttektuo and
Senator SEWARD as a candidate, the result will
not be doubtful—the Democratic party will tri..
umph But will Mr. Swam, be the candidate
of the Republicans in 1860? We think the re
suit of the New York election has settled that
question The refusal of the republicans to
"fuse" with the Americans on a union state ticks
et, though the measure was earnestly advocated
by thousands of reliable republicans, was a Stmt.. I
.an triumph. It said to the Americans, in so
many words, we are now preparing for the great
contest of 1860—if we unite with you, the vie,
tory won will be a partnership victory, and hence
will indicate nothing,—while on the other hand,
if we maintain our separate orginiaation and
achieve a victory, it is a proclamation to the
world that we can carry the State in 1860 with
whoever we nominate. We say then that the refuse
of the republicans to unite with the Americans
in New York was a SzwAsn triumph ; the nomi
illation of MoRGAN was 'another; and his eleci
lion must be considered by every unprejudiced
politician as the most substantial triumph of all.
We know the Americans and that portion of the
Republicans in the State of New York who are
opposed to SIMARD try to look upon it in an.
other light; but it is all in vain. The victory
achieved in New York on the 2d of this month
11 a Seward victory, and as certainly makes him
the Republican candidate for President as the
day of nomination arrives. Chase, and Cam•
eron, and Banks, and the other aspiring gentle
men, of that ilk, may as well come down at once
ike Capt. Scott's coon, for the battle has been
fought sod the chaplet of victory rests upon the
b►ow of the New York agitator. Of course we mate
this prediction upon the supposition that the
11 nigger" question is to be kept open until 1860
and is to be the issue upon which the contest turns.
This being so, it may not be amiss to ezaniine
the platform upon which Mr. Seward proposes to
stand at that time We quote from his speech
delivered at Rochester, New York, on the 26th
alt :
"Hitherto the two systems have existed in dif
forint States, but side by side within tie Aineri
can Union, * * These antagonistic systems are
continually coming into closer contact, and col
lision results. Shall I tell you what this collis
ion means ? They who think that it is sooiden
tat, unnecessary, the work of interested or fanat
ical agitators, and therefore ephemeral, mistake
the out, altogether. It is an irrepressible con
flirt between opposing and enduring forces, and
tt means that the United States mast and will,
sooner or later, become either entirely slaves
holding nation, or entirely a free labor nation
Either the cotton and rice fields of South Car.
olina and the Sugar plantations of Louisiana
Ultimately be tilled by free labor, and
Charleston and New Orleans become marts for
leyitintate merchandise alone, or else the rye
fields end wheat fields of Idassachneetts Jed New
York must again be surrendered by their farm
ers to slave culture and to the production of
slaves, and Boston and New-York become once
more markets for trade in the bodies and souls of
men. It is the failure to apprehend this great
truth that induces so many unsuccessful attempts
at final compromise between the slave aqd free
States, and it is the existence of this grdai fact
that renders: all such pretended comprornsei, when
made, vain and ephemeral. Startling at this
saying may appear to you, fellow-citizens,. it is
by no means an original one"
Remarking upon this platform, she Detroit
Free Press says it supposes it is of no use lo ar
gue with Mr. SiWAtlar—to tell him that this is
not a consolidated government, but a confederacy
of independent States--independent of each
other, wholly and entirely, as regards their do
mestic institutions and conoerns—at perfect lib•
erty to establish this or that system of labor arid
to reject this or that system, just as they are at
perfect liberty to establish this or that system of
e ducation, or this or that system of internal im
provements, or this or that system of punishment
of crime, without eonsultation with or leave of
the Federal government or the other State gov
ernments. We suppose it is of no use to tell Mr.
Si warn this, for it has been told to him a thou
sand times before and he would not see
T here are none so blind as they who will not see,
and Mr. Sew/Lew is of this class He will Pot
see because, if he should see, be would be left
without occupation. The true theory of the gov
ernment is in direct and unrelenting Antagonism
with the doctrine of Mr. EitWARD's Rochester
speech. The true theory of the government
does not .admit of the agitation about slavery
which Mr. Sirwean seeks to promote. It is agi
cation at war with the separate rights of the
States, and cannot live a moment. longer than

tiers, especially in politici This remark will
apply with great farce to the Gazeitt, and s,)me
of its party, in connection with their rejoiciag
over the imeces4 of Senator Doucius In his re-
cent contest in Illinois ‘Vbst cause they have
to rejoice, and, a at least one of the leaders of
the ReEtiblieau pirty of the ootittty did, get
"gloriously fuddled" over the fact that the wish
of Senator Brown, of Mississippi, that Douglas
"would whip Lincoln out of his boots," has been
gratified, is more than we can •ce It seems to
us that the congratulatioo4 of the Gazette, and
the whisky of its leader, have both been wasted.
L►t a look at facts and see if this is not so. It
is a well known fact that Mr Douglas and his
"antl , Lesiotnpton" friends carried with thos the
regular oiganization of the Democratic party of
Illinois; and consequently in their late Contest
they enetuntered the most embittered opposition
ever kndwn from the Black Republican.; In
ulikStates, however, whore the regular organi
atrai of the party were uniformly favorable to
the Kansas policy of the Administration, every
bolting gang of disappointed offiee-eeekers and
their deluded dupes laid claim to anti-L,comp.,
ton scrupleA, and dubbed themselves "Douglas
men!" The falsity of their claim is apparent
from the fact that Mr Douglas never advocated,
but has repeatedly and publicly condemned
throughout the canvass, all bolting from the re
gular organization. The dissimilarity between
the rest Douglas men in Illinois and the factious
traitors and demagogues in this and other states,
who claim affinity with them, is furthertapparent
for the fact that, while the former were engaged
in one of di l e warmest eontesui with the Black
Itepublicans, the latter have uniformly fused
with tind received the most fanatical support of
that lifamons party So wide indeed is the dif
ferentia between Messrs. Douglas and Harris up
on the one side, and Forney, Basking, litokman
dr. Co., upon the other, that they are entirely at
antipodes in their affinities, associations and ten
denoies. With this fact in view, why the Ga.
mite should rejoice, and its late favorite for Se
n‘torial honors in this district, should waste good
liquor over the result, is not at all clear to our
But there is another view of this Illinois con
test Which shows most conclusively the gross ab
ritrdity of the Gamete.' s rejoioing and im late
candidate's waste of the "raw material" over the
result. To adopt the language of the Harrisburg
Patriot and Union, the contest in Illinois was
one "in which the future of Mr. Douglas and
Mr. Lincoln was immediately involved. They
spote in this spirit Mr. Lincoln proolaimed the
same treasonable doctrines which Mr Seward en
nuciated in hie Rochester speech; Mr, Douglas,
while differing from the Democratisi party in
some points, bore himself as a national man
They traversed the State, harangued the people,
exhibited each great ability, but often noncom t
nary personality. Air. Douglas conquered—and
we have new to contemplate the result It ls a
victory of nationality, over sectionalism; of pa
triotic views over fanaticism; of the Union over
abolitionism. Mr. Lincoln had proclaimed a
ceaseless war between free and slave labor; be
t Ween the North and the South; he placed him'
self at the head of a crusade which, however it
may be d'agnised, means the arraying of ono Dele
tion of the country against the other; a oonfliet
b e tween etrial and sovereign States; the conque;-
iog of the great South by the great North. Ifli
noie has repudiated him, has condemned the pg,i.
tater who preaches an antagonism of sections,
which, if it exists, patriots should ameliorate,
but not stimulate—we therefore rejoice in hie
discomfiture," but why a paper like the Gazette
should also rejoice—a paper that has not one
sentiment in common with the victor on any na
tional question that is likely to arise in the next
Presidential contest—why its leaders should
waste even poor whisky for the same reason—
is a little beyond our political arithmetic—and,
especially in view of the fact that the Chicago
Times, Mr. Douglas' home organ, made the tol
lowing emphatic pledge just previous to the elec
"We can safely say that Judge Douglas,
whether re-elected Senator or not, will for all
time act within the Democratic organisation,
never within any other; and we can further say,
that so sure as the Charleston Convention shall
be the National Democratic Nominating Conven•
tiou of , I*a,, so sure will Judge Douglas and the
Democrats of Illinois be found Aupporting its
tip' Our amiable neighbor of the Gazet/e
ought not to be quite so fast. The Observer has
not "come in" to the "standard" of Judge
Douowks. The Observer never did rejoice at
the defeat of a Democrat by a Republican, and
hence could not, with its post antecedents and
present views, otherwise than rejoice that such a
pestilential demagogue as Abe Lincoln will not
occupy the seat of Judge Douglas in the United
States Senate. This being our position, it does
not necessarily follow, however, that we have
"come in" to the "standard" of the "little
giant." if the Charleston Convention should
nominate him ie 1860, the Observer will then
"come in"—of that fact the Gazette can "bet
high on."
Mir The Gazette says "vicissitudes are tho
lot of mortals, especially polities! mortals." . As
our neighbor has never had any thing else but
"vieissitudes" since be entered "polities," it is
presumed he speaks from experience.

to command it, as is done in this handsome nisk:
net by the Washington correspondent of
Arorrlt American, in his Letter of the 2nd inst.:
"It is now understood here that Mr. (Haney
Jones will not start for his mission, until the ac
tion of the Senate upon the nomination, though
be sill I. ,ign his seat in the House, in order
that •oe vacancy may ba filled at once. This is
a becoming deference, inasmuch is the seeeting
of Congress is near at hand Much has been
in regard to the motives which prompted
this appointment, but there would seem to be
but ono fair interpretation fer the sot, which is,
that the President designed to testify his person
al estimation of the recipient, and to signify, at
the same time, that in his defeat he enlisted the
sympathies of those who were eqindlyinvolved
to the result But, whatever opinion may be
entertained, the President is certaioly entitled to
the credit of obeying a generous impulse, in ex
tending so high a mark of his countenance and
confidence to a friend, who had been stricken
down in vindicating his personal cause and the
policy of his Administration. And no one can
deny that this expression was rendered the more
graceful, is it was doubtless made the more ter
oeptable, by the prompt and handsome muner
in which Mr. Buchanan tendered the mission,
without suggestion from any quarter. There
were those, to be sure, who thought, from the
intimate relations which had so long subsisted
between the parties, that another position would
have been offered, but Austria, Mexico and
China were the only three points at the disposal
of the President when the necessity arose for him
t) art, and he selected that which appeared to
conflr the highest present distinction
Stir The Hon J Glancy Jones resigned hie
seat in Congress on Monday last, November lst,
and on the same day formally accepted the com,
mission recently tendered him by the President,
us Minister to Austria It is the desire of the
Government that Mr Jones should depart upon
hts mission as speedily as possible But it is
probable that his credentials may not be fully
prepared until the first or middle of Deoember.
In the event of his detention until the laat.oam'
ed period, the action of the Senate can be bad
upon his appointment The Washington corm.
pondent of the New York Tribune—soul au ,
thority in suoh a matter—says "no opposition to
his confirmation is anticipated."

his wife keeps a small dry goods store. The facts
of the oast are as follows: . At 8 o'clock last
evening be left the Western station house for his
home, and was cautioned by Captain Linewea,ver
not to go out, as threats had been made against
his life on account of the testimony be bad given
in the ease of Gambrill, to the effect that he
should die on the day that Gambrill was coo
rioted. These threats had also reached .the ears
of the deceased, but be was unable to trees them
to any direct source, and considered them as idle
or drunken threats On leaving the station
ti , ,use he proceeded directly to Ins home, and
was in hie sitting room, adjoining the store,
talking to his wife, at the time of his death.
At the corner of the sitting room a small win
dow opens into the yard, and Mr Higdon was
standing leaning on the mantel piece, with his
back to the window, from which be was not two
feet distant. His wife was sitting on the other
side of the room, and a little lost child, which he
had picked up in the street, was sitting on the
carpet at his feet. The assassin went up a small
alley at the side of the house, and with a large
horse pistol fired at him through the window, a
heavy load of sings entering his right side and
causing instant death. He exclaimed only—"I
am sbot,"—and fell dead on the floor, having
ceased breathing after one heavy groan. A large
horse pistol, with Which the deed was committed,
was left lying in the yard, immediately under the
window. '
Police officer John Cook was on the opposite
side of Baltimore street, and hearing the report
of the pistol started across to Mr. Bigdon's house,
when a man came running out of the side alley
with a revolver in his hand, and as cfficer Cook
warted to arrest him he fired twice at him, neith.
er of which took effect. The officer immediately
drew his revolver and started in purim_ l it firing
twice at the assassin as ho ran up Baltimore
street. On turning the corner of Pine street, the
assassin and the officer again exchanged shots
without effect, and continued the race on to Penn
street, when officer Cook succeeded in knocking
him down with his pistol, and with the assistance
of officers Jamison .and Higgins, carried him to
the station house. It proved to be Peter Corrie,
a butcher, residing on the Ileckstown road, and
an associate of Gambrill's.
