To-morrow ia the day for the assembling of the Vir ginia Democratic Conventions. The Breckinridge fac tion meets in Charlottesville, and the Douglas faction meets in Staunton. So far as we have observed, about as many counties have appointed delegates to the one as the other, and both, it is likely, will he pretty largely attend ed. As we understand it, the principle object of the Breck inridge Convention and of the Dougla* Convention is to . form a joint hr a separate electoral ticks', as the secs* of doty and the feelings of the two bodies may suggest The Breckinridge men, in particular, although they se ceded at Baltimore and disrupted the Democratic party. Npoa a principle, appear to be exceedingly anxious to retracetbeir steps, and they are consequently willing to cu*loose from their Gulf State brethren, and surrender Ike principle, for the sake of coalition with the DougU inee, in support of a common electoral ticket. Men o' easr virtue, looking to the spoils and cari-g nothing loi principle, notwithstanding they boast and prate about principle day in and day out. these Virginia Breckinridg er* are down upon their knees to the Douglas men, so hciliog them to torgel and forgire their Secession tuovc ‘ ...i .r IL.lt i more and to unite with them in support of at unprincipled and odious''double-headed electoral ticket. Though denouncing Douglas as “the enemy of the South,’ * and his Territorial doctrine on the subject of slavery as .“were* than the doctrine of Seward," and though decoune iug the !i .ends of Douglas, in the language of Senator Ma •on, as "|he /rprom /armorewvw,*’ the Breckinridger* ar. willing aud anxious and solicitous to make Irieud* will the Douglas men, aud are constantly imploring and bc ssecliiiig them to consent to the formation of “a double •hotted" ticket,and to vote iu common fo« such ticket,upon the understanding that the electors -hall vote lor Doug in, if Douglas obtains more votes out side of Virginia l»ian Bre. kinri.lge, or for Breckinridge, if BreckiuriJgc citato* more votes outside of Virginia than Douglas' — This *• the proposition of compromise—a proposition which, ihadopted by the two wing* of the party, wii mole principle and ail thought of principle, and subject the vote of V irginia to the dictation and control of her sister States! Iu a word, Virginia is to be virtually mum, Una Missouri, or other outside States shall determine ' Apart from the base and disgusting ignoring of principle involved in this proposition, in what a miserably depen dent and humiliating position will it place the proud old C minionweallh of Virginia' Always, heretofore, a /<•«■/ t \ iolluentiul in the councils of parties and of State V rgioia it to be gagged, humbled, having no indepeu d ;it voice in the contest, and her vote voluntari.'v rm jen iered into the hands of other aud outside States, to be given to Tom, Dick or Harry, as those other outsidi States, in the exercise of an unlimited discretion, may de termine ! Was there ever a proposition, not only so des titute of political principle aud political lioueeiy, but so ilishonci.ng to our State'’ State pride,State character, Htate independence, State influence, are all, all to te sacrificed upon the altar of a foul aud accursed coali tion ticket, for the sake of a miserable and corrupt party triumph ’ >‘or one, we express the earnest hope that sueh a co alition ticket may be agreed upon by the two wings of the Virgiuia Democracy. With such a ticket against us, we aboul-1 feel no apprehensiou of the result, satisfied that it would drive thousands of the beet and most hono rable Democrats io the State into the positive and active support of Bell and Everett. Numbers of Douglas men and numbers of Breckinridge men, many of them well known and influential, have recently assured us, in the atrongrat and moat emphatic terms, that, in the event of a coalition ticket being agreed to by the two Court r_ t on*, thee would at once declare for Bell and Everett, an 1 exert themselves to the utmost to secure the electo rs vote of Virginia for them! We believe that, at a m oh rate calculation, there are not less than ten the v. ■« d Democrats in Virginia, aud perhaps a larger m m ber, who would scorn to support *’ a doubled-beac’ei” in.and Breckinridge electoral ticket. A ticket in voiviog so palpable and shameless a surrender of prin . c pie, and which Jelittrt otcr the vote of Virginia io O the hands of omttij* States, can never command the sympathy and support of the independent and higt ui.nded freemen] of the old Domiaioo. The Kuhmotd Km./mrtr, when under the editorial control of the eldc Ritchie, is full of the moat emphatic and terrific denun ciations against " J>jnkit-tknl!ni lickt'.t ;** and, in the •vent of a ‘•double-shotted" Democratic electoral ticket In Virginia in the present canvass, we shall re produce the Uni/nirtr t philippics, and throw them in the face oi the unprincipled Democracy without stint and without meicy. As a matter of policy, therefore, so far as Bell and Everett are concerned,we could desire nothing more, from the two Democratic Conventions to-morrow, than a co it promise upon “a double-shotted” electoral ticket. |a codduaion, wo defy these two Conventions to do thiir best or their worst, for, in any event, with proper organization and effort on the part of the friends of Bell and Everett, we shall carry the State by a triumphant mij >rity! We care not the toss of a copper, theiefore, whrtber there are two separate electoral tickets, or whither there is '* a double-shotted" electoral ticket— k'rom consideration ot policy, we prefer the latter, but we have little coucern about the matter, one way or the other. Let the two factions crack their horses—and go it! A iHggeotloa to the Charlottesville tonven tloa. • We desire to make a reasonable and patriotic sugges Voo to the members of the Breckinridge Convention, which assembles at Charlottesville to-morrow. And if ftie members of that body are reasonable and patriotic meo, that suggestion will be adopted without hesitation, and with pleasure, and amid the unbounded applause of the conservatives throughout the country. You are aware, gentlemen, that John <Breckinridge, as a candidate for the Presidency, is dead, shrouded, laid out. aud ready for Ike grave, if not already buried. The result of the recent elections in North Carolus, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas and Alabama, ia the im * mediate cause of his sudden extinction—it was that that “slewed” him. While he was alive and kicking, though hw chances were always blue, there was nothing unnatu ral or unreasonable in your support of him. But now that ha has passed away, and while mourning friends are dropping tears .upon his grave, what’s the use ot your imagining him still alive, and incoherently talking about him as an actual candidate for the Presidency ? Though considerable of knaves, don’t, for Cod's sake, make in fernal fools of yourselves. There was a time when Breckinridge was a man of fiesh and blood, after a fash ion, as a candidate for the Presidency. But he sleeps quietly io his grave now, and don’t vex hi« spirit with your uonxeosa at Charlottesville. Name not his name' , • Me ia not ia the ring ! Breckinridge being dsad and gone, what ia your duty | dow • It !• to adopt a resolution at Charlottesville re .'.m men-ling to your wing of the patty to support Bell and Everett, as the only meant now left of defeating Lin coln and protecting the just rights of the South and the Union. We do no; ask you to aay that you prefer Bell to any other man In the nation. We don’t ask you to make aay sacrifices of your principle, (Oh! Jerusalem ;) all we ask of you is to hold your principles in abeyance, and defer a dissolution of the Union until a more convenient season ! In a word, what we desire you to do is, to an nounce your purpose, like men and patriots, to sustain the election of Bell and Everett, as a choice of evils, if you choose, but, at all hazards, to support Bell and Eve rett, as the best thing and the only|thiog you can do, un der the circumstances. You had a sort of a candidate, but you have uone now. W hy, then, not take ours ?— You prefer Bell to either Douglas or Lincoln, unless you are down-right disunionists aud traitors, which some of you are. and which we expect to see you swing for, long before Christmas. But, we implore you to save your characters and save your necks, by coming out boldly for Bell and Everett. We will allow you, as a matter of ac commodation and charity to.you, in your present melan choly aitualiou, to vote for Bell, and will promise you, in the bargain, not to wound vour feelings by mentioning the name of Breckimidge, or referring to the Kentucky election, during the entire canvass. We are generous and magnanimous men. aid, seeing you standing out, houseless and shivering in the pitiless storm, we would fain draw you beneath our broad and protecting wings, and give you shelter until after the much fiercer and wild er tempest in November! Come along—here’s our hand, the right and the left ; and here is your rock of refuge. Here are Bell and Everett—statesmen and patriots, schol ars, gentlemen, the poor man's friends, the hope of all political wanderers in a barren desert, like yourselves.— Rally around them—they will save you aud sa> e our com mon country! In conclusion, and seriously, we recommend to the Breckinridge Convention, at Charlottesville, to do the wiss and the patriotic thing, and declare for Belt aud Ev erett. No other ticket stands the ghost of a chance of defeating Lincoln! Why, Oh! why, by refusing to sup port it, will you play into the bands of the Black Repub licans T X Piece of Krleatlly and Patriotic advice to Hie Uoutflaa Cotticmiou at Stuuntou. You will assemble in Convention to-morrow, gentle men, and if you desire to prove to the world that you ire men of sense and patriotism, you will unquestiona bly abandon the aillv idea of supporting Douglas, and concentrate your entire strength upon Bell aud Everett! That is a moral and philosophical fact, which we com mend to your deliberate reflection, and which we charge you nothing for bringing to your notice. We are somewhat afraid that the unexpected exhibi tion of strength made by the Douglas men in the recent elections, especially in Kentucky and Missouri, will have ibe effect of misleading and deceiving you. Though Douglas' chances art better than Breckinridge’s, what of that? He still stands no chance of an election—not •ven the ghost of a chance' Though not exactly dead ind buried, like Breckinridge, he is still pale, weak, ca laveious, and looks as if he were not very long for this world. He may survive until the f-th of November, but hen he will be obliged to depart. Ho is not a nag, herefore, to put on the track iu a great race like the ire-eut. Possibly be may survive beyond the 6th of v*,-.-.,mt%A u.. nhiKsar think hn nrovided YOU _itc him off the track at ouce, and turu him iuto the pasture for the next four years. He can make no race uow, and if yon tnil run him, it will kill hint. Ue need* rest badly. Take him from the field, therefore, and in I $64 he may he the favorite of all attendants ou the turf. What you should undoubtedly do, under existing cir cumstances, is to spread yourselves in behalf of Bell and tlverett. Nagsot noble bottom and splendid speed, they a ill do for you to tie to, while the “Little Giant" refresh 's himself. Come out, then, at your Convention at Slauu on to-morrow, and say, that, in this canvass, you will support He 11 and Kverett, the ouly candidates in the field that stand the remotest chance of defeating Lincoln) tushing out the R- publicans, and opeuiug the way for conservative success in the future. There is no telling how Douglas might loom up for 1SC4, if his Iristids would tie wise and prudent now, holding out firmly against all ■•lie persuasions and solicitations aud suggestions of the Disunion Breckinridge re, repudiating all coalition with Diem, preserving their nationality and throwing their weight in the baiauee lor Bel!, wherever it can be made „ tell effectually tor him. Theto is no chance for Doug. Iss in the present contest—his chances are in the future 4id brill: nit chances they are, too, if his friends will play cvrnt' We sppeal fo you, Douglas meu, in Convention assent .!cd to morrow, to mind your points! We would have • ou come out straightly and boldly for Bell—for that is • our duty, and the duty of all patriotic men in the pros ut contest, which is a contest emphatically and csscu .ally between Itell and Lincoln But, at all events, if • ou would live as a putry, and have your candi date live, aud not only tive, but triumph, you must c -arly and decidedly, di-own and repudiate the thought of any compromise or affiliation with the Yancey Bis* union Breckinridgen»! ‘•Fan* lor the People.” Under this heading, the Bteckinridge organ in Petcts >urg, the Bull,tin, enumerates the following amoug its mdisputable facts: “It t* a Farr, That Srmirs A. Dorntas is in favor of 'i|uattor Sovereignty, a doctrine which, if endorsed by the American people by electing him to the Presidency, would forever exclude the Southern people with their property from the Territories, ami be as degrading to the South as the triumph of the principles of Black Re publicanism. Squatter Smrrei/nty is a short rut to all the suds of ilHtUltiOUisM." It will thus be seen that this Breckinridge organ main l tins that the enduisaliou of Douglas, by his election to the Presidency, woald “be *ia deijradiny to the South as thr triumph <-f the principles of Black Htpualicanitm" —'.hat Douglas “S</uattsr Sotertiynly is a short cut to all the ends of Abolitionism.” And yet, in the face of the emphatic opinion thus expressed in regard to the na ture and tendency of Douglas’ doctrines, many of the Breckinridge meu here in Virginia are not ouly willing, but anxious to form a coalition with the friends of Doug las, aud to unite with them in support of a common elec toral ticket, and thereby aid in carrying out a policy which they themselves declare is “a short cut to all ths ends of Abolitionism,”—and “the triumph of which wu!d be as degrading to the South as the triumph of the principles of Black Republicanism.” What unprinci pled hypocrites! Polity of the Hr< < Uiuridgrra. Speaking of the Chat lottesville Convention, which at scmliles to-morrow, the Dauville Appeal, a decided Breckinridge organ, says: “In our opinion more important results will follow its action than have ever been brought about by any State Convention assembled in Virginia for many years. Up on it depend the fortunes of the party iii the canvass which has already been commenced. More than that, we sincerely believe that it remains for the Convention to determine for all time, so far as the Virginia Democ raev are concerned, whether principle is paramount to reont. whether the principle of Stales' Rights consider ed in its relation to the South is to besu-taiued, by in d-ting upon the Constitutional right of Southern men to enter any territory of the United States with any •pedes of property they may own, and to hold such pro perty there during the territorial condition of such ter ritory, or whether it should be igtioiuiniously saciiiiced by adopting the dogma of “Squatter-Sovereignty” as the definite settlement of the policy of the party in regard to the slavery question. In other words, whether the Virginia Democracy will bupport Doculas or Brackin' kiiiuk. That tee cannot support both, ie too clear, we .hink, to be questioned. That soe cannot eupport the one without opposing the other is we think equally as clear. Ikeouhe possible condition upon which we think Doca i.AS and Brickirriim.i men of Virginia can form a t nrjn wilt be, that Docolas shall he ignored in the canvass and the electoral note of Virginia cart for Hrvckisriikji and Lari in any event, without excep tion.” Therejs, indeed, nothing clearer than that Brick ■ Riintii and Doiulas cannot both be supported, by means of a coalition electoral ticket, without an utter and base abandonment of principle on the part of both f.clioos. The Appeal is right. Douglaalaiu Iii Kenlaek) -He Terms with the Sleet-Mere! The Douglas Democratic Slate Couveotion of Kentuc ky met in Louisville, on Saturday, and eighty-seven counties, cut of the one hundred and four in the State, were represented, and 700 delegates were piesent, and a straight Douglas electoral ticket was put to vote!— ■tee the following dispatch : “Locisvillr, Aug. 12.—The Douglas Democratic State Convention met here yesterday.

William F. Ritchie and William W. Dunnivant, so long connected with the /inquirer, have retired from the concern, having sold out their in terests therein to Messrs. Nat. Tyler and 0. J. Wise, by whom the paper will hereafter be owned and conducted. We part with Mr. Ritchie with great regret, and wish him happiness and prosperity in whatever vocation he may engage. The name of Ritchie—a talismanlc name with the Democracy of Virginia—has been associated with the Richmond Enquirer for nearly sixty years. Its disconnection with that paper will, no doubt, excite un pleasant regrets in the mind of every member of the Dem ocratic |>arty, not only in Virginia, but throughout the country. The new proprietors_have our best wishes for their pe cuniary success, but not for the triumph of their political principles. Bather Scared. Professor DcBow, the very able editor of the Review which bears his name, in his editorial notes, on a re cent visit to Nashville, refers to a Breckinridge ratifica tion meeting, which was addressed by some of the ablest men in Tennessee. He says of the speeches aud the speakers: "It seemed to us, however, that they did not meet the issues as boldly as they should at such a time, and were not free from apprehensions of the resnlt of the part they had recently taken in Baltimore. In brief, they were a little tcared." DeBow is an inveterate fire eater, and knows what he is talking about The Missouri Elections. The Constitutional Union party have gained one mem ber of Congress, Rollins, in the second District, and have polled a much larger vote for their candidate for Gov ernor, Sample Orr, than we anticipated. The Breckin ridge faction under the lead of Senator Green, supported the Douglas candidate for Governor, C. F. Jackson, and at this writing it is supposed, though not positively as certained that, he is elected. Tho vote, under the circumstances, leaves no room for doubt that the Union ticket will carry the State tri umphantly in November. Breckinridge Convention In Muryland. The Maryland Brcckiuridge Slate Democratic Couvcn vention assembled in Baltimore, on Thursday, appoint ed Breckiuridge electors in the two districts where the preseut electors are Douglas men, (tho ".rd and 4th dis tricts, ) ratified the nomination of Breckinridge, and look all other necessary steps for a regular Breckiuridge or ganization, and no fiuion with the friends of Douglas.

Wo have despatched a special reporter to Staunton and another to Charlottesville, whoso business it will bo to sketch for our readers the proceedings of both the Douglas and the Breckinridge Conveutious. That these proceedings would be exceedingly piquant and racy, were both wings to assemble together, there can be no doubt, what tho character of them will be, with both wings apart, we Lave no means of determining in ad vance. Dull or spicy, however, our readers will soon have an opportunity of judging for themselves. A Good Mulls T'uo New Y ork Tribune Las turned the whole strength of its artillery upon Bell and Everett, and is pouring in broad side after broadside of its “ineffectual fires."

Our hotel Is situated oti a mountain, and we are surrounded by mountains. Imme diately in front ot us is a long chain of mountains, the highest point of which is culled "Ellen’s Knob" aud is said to be 8,755 feet above the level of the sea, which is much higher than the “Peaks of Otter." On the summit of this peak there art: about twenty acres of table land, so that parties who, either for pleasure or from curiosity, ascend this mountain, cau have a most unsurpassed and uninterrupted view of the surrounding counties for many, many miles. Within ouo hundred yards of the summit there is a very large freestone sptiug, which scuds out a stream of sufiicieul volume to turn a mill wheel. A short distance from its source this stream separates, one branch of which rushes dowu the mountain to form the waters of the broad Potomac, whilst the other branch pursues its singing course (a perfect Minnehaha) down the oppo site side ol the mountain to join the waters of our tic James. On the extreme summit of this “knob” is planted a flag-staff,from which lioats in the eveuing breeze the stars and stripes of our glorious country.

That town was destiueil to be burned, tbe people lo be poitoned aud slaughtered, and the remaining pro perty to be distributed umong the victorious blacks.— On Red Oak Creek the chief poisoner had been arrested 1 a_ J V--... tiBMliias l.ofi. t.Aasn <1**. reeled with the poisi* in tbeir poss -srion, and a runner iu town yesterday reports that there have been several executions at that place. We have not yet received the particulars. The Committee of Vigilance have been in sesalon all dixy, ar.d this evening they announced that three of the ringleaders ol the insurrection are to be bauged to morrow. TntiJai/, July 24.—This evening, at 4 o'clock, the three riuglcaders, Sam, Caio, and l'atrick, were escorted (torn the jail, under a strong guard, to the place of exe cution. An immense concourse of citizens and negroes assembled. As they passed through the town, they sur veyed with composure the ruins of the ouco nourishing town that uow lay a blackened mars before them. Patrick remained calm and collected during the whole day, and betrayed no remorse or leeling whatever, in view of his approaching doom. lie it was who fired the town, and the uight alter its destruction glorified himself for the died, and pronounced it 01 iy the commencement ol the good work. Sam Smith, so called from the name nf his master, was an old negro preacher, who had imbibed most of Ids villaiuoin principles from two abolition preachers, Blunt and McKinney, who lived in the coun try a year before, aud had much intercourse with him Oslo had always enjoyed a bad reputation. They met their fate with a composure worthy of a better cause.— Patrick, with uti|>arallelcd uvnchalnnct, died with a chew of tobacco in bis mouth, aud rclused to mike any state ment whatever. They were hung on the hank of the river, above town, and are buiied beneath the gallows. Investigations are going on throughout the country, all of which tend to confirm the facts elicited at this . The evidence obtained before the committee, *,!Lb*.fe‘. Ld iu due iime._ On the 17th ult., was found the body of a man by the name of Wm. 11. Crawford, suspended to a ocean tree, about three-quarters of a mile from town. A large num ber of persons visited the body during the day. At a meeting of the citizens (he same evening strong evidence was adduced, proving him to have been an Abolitionist. The meeting endorsed the action of the party who bung him. The Houston True Southerner, of 28th ult., has the fo 1 iwiug paragraph cn this sul j. ct: Just as we are goiug to press, nows has arrived here, from a reliable source, that twen'y-two negroes have been arrested aud are to be hung iu Waxxhachie to-day. A letter Irom Austin gives au account of a f larlul at tempt made about the 22d mat., to reduce our State cap itol to a heap of ashes. The daring experiment was made to set fire to some twenty-live of the principal edifices of the city; fortunately, however, the tl tinea were discover ed aud extinguished before toy serious damage had been sustained. 0:i the night previous, the Austin correspond ent had been keeping vigils over the sick bed of a friend when he observed a sheet cl Unite bursting from a neigh holing house, which, iu consequence of timely warning, the citizens were enabled to arrest, and save the building from iitipcuding ruin. At present, the whole population of the metropolis are under arms, and laboring under the most intense excite sent. A police force, consisting of from sixty to ninety men, are maintaining the strictest system ot vigilance, by night and by day. Iu all the counties visited lately by tires committees to investigate the subject have been appointed, and the most ellicient citizen patrols have been < stablished. In Grimes comity a meeting of citizens resolved : That there is among the negroes of the county a dia posiiiou to revolt aud ho insudordinste; that this feeling is produced by tho influence of certain white parsons in the county; that it is tiino steps be taken to rid the com munity ol these men; that preaching by thenrgroe- in the county he stopped, ut least for one year; that Northern ers coming into the county under pretence of being min isters, teachers, drummers, Ac., are to be regarded with suspicion . and received with caution; that a vigilance committee to appointed, patrols organized, and other measures for rate y^aken. THE PERILS OF SURF BATHING. TWO MEN DROWNED AT LONG BRANCH, AND TWO AT NEVER SINK HIGHLANDS. A sad casualty happened at Long Branch, Saturday, at the usual bathing hour. Among the bathers were Or. Edward 0. Hummer, of Jersey City, aud Mr. John Whit taker, ot Trenton, and a party ol ladies. From some cause the ladies became apprehensive of danger, and Ur. Hummer aud Mr. Whittaker proceeded to their relief, aud in their efforts became exhausted, aud before asaist aucc could reach them both were drowned. The Doctor was drawn into a boat as soon as ho could be reached by Mr. Green, a tisbeimxu, and taken ashore, aud as seve ral plivsiciaus were at hand, every available means and efforts were used to restore both of the geullcmco, but without success, they were passed beyond the power and skill of mau to bring back life. Mr. Whittaker was a large, stout man, who, it is said, a brother of Mr. Green swam ashore with. His wife and sou, about seventeen years of age, were with him at the time. He had been here about three weeks, and was about returning lor the rest of the family on Monday.— There are five or six other sons and daughters left to mourn the unexpected and sudden loss. It is said Dr. Hummer lost a mother and a sister in the steamship Lyonnaise, when she went down some years ago. The news of the catastrophe quickly spread from Long Brauch to the Ocean House and the Highlands. But twen ly-four hours afterward, and before the visitors at the place named had ceased to discuss the details, it was an nounced that two men had boon found in the surf oppo site Thompson’s Atlantic' ptvillioo; that these fresh vic tims were Gusiavus A. Katz, of New York, and Edward Gardiner, of Buffalo; and that the wife of the fornnr had uearly shared his lute. It appears that at 11 o’clock yes terday moniing,| Mr. *and Mrs. Raiz, who were staying at the Highlands, went to bathe on the outer beach, ac companied by the wife of Councilman Van Tine, and by Mr. Robert H. Evans and his sister, all ol New York. Mr. Gardiner belonged to auother party who went in at the same lime. The surf, under an easterly wind, was run ning very high, and Mr. Ralz, a strong swimmer, and fearless of danger, ventured out ton far, taking his wife with him. It was soon evident that they were carried off their feet by the undertow and were strug gling to regain the shore. Mr. John Welcher, of this city, was on the beach at the time, aud acized a rope, one cud of which he gave to Mr. Evans, who plunged in to the aid of Mrs. Rate, and succeeded iu lay ing hold of her. Mr. Evans then drew them both to shore. The lady was senseless. Placing her on the sand, the gentlemen then turned to rescue Mr. Ralz, but he had gone down, and was Been no more till half an hour afterwards, when the waves throw his corps far up on the beach. By continued efforts Mrs. Ratz was re suscitated, only lo gain tho dreadful knowledge of her husband's death. The deceased will probable be buried with military honors, as ho was a corporal in the First company of the National Guartls. It wus almost at the same moment that Mr. Gardner, a youug man of eighteen years, was swept away from bis fiieuJs who were bathing with him at a little distance from the first party, and lost his life in precisely the same manner—tho last of the four whose deaths have thus occurred. IIorrihli Mi-rdkr—A Son and Sister Killed.— George Aldrich, a convict, who had just served out a teim of five years in tbe Virginia penitentiary, for kil ling R man in Logan, left Richmond a few days since, tnd on arriving At Logan county, found that bU family ; Lad moved acioaa tlie river to Warfield, Lawrence coun ty, Ky. Tbe Kanawha Republican any*: He followed them. He murdered his sister In the most shocking manner, literally cutting her to pieces, uking out her heart and backing it to pieces, and then throwing the body into Sandy river. The body of his son, a lad of about thirteen years old, was found in a by-place, nearly eaten up by tbe hogs—but was readily identified by a remarkable scar, on one foot, which had been preserved by the shoe and stocking. The son was by a wife who bad obtained a divorce. After the per petration of these horrid deeds, the fiend, with bis gun in hand, fled to the woods, saying that he intended to kill his father and mother and two other persons—and then the people might take him, burn him at the stake, or do what they pleased with him. The excited people are af ter him. ___ POLITIC1AS RUN MAD. A DOUGLAS PRESS SEIZED UPON BY THE BRECK 1NR1DGKRS. FIGHT BETWEEN THE EDITOR AND THE POLI TICIAN. McConellbcro, Pa, Aug. 11—The Democracy held a County Meeting here last night, at which a regular skirmish was indulged in between the Douglas and Breckinridge parties. Much bitter feeling prevailed,and the meeting broke up in a row. During the absence of the editor of the Democrat, Mr. Sansom, atCresson, tbe Breckinridge party entered the office of that newspaper, mutilated the forms, run up the Breckinridge flag and issued an edition of the pa per under that banner. The affair has created considerable excitement. A personal recoutre also took place, last night, after the meeting, between Mr. Sansom, and G. A. Smith, a Breckinridge Attorney. Sansom give Smith the lie. when the latter collared him. The parties were then separated. KENTUCKY ELECTION.

Jackson, Douglas Democrat, so tar as heard from, leads Sample Orr, Union, for Governor, by 6,290 votes._ An Eleniast StvumiBn Across tiib Onto River — Dan Rice’s elephant, “Lalla ltookh,” swam across the Ohio river last Thursday, opposite Cincinnati. The Com inercul says: At times nothing but the end of her trunk would be visible, then the top of her head, and again she would dive entirely out of sight, remaining under water until those on shore begun to think she was drowned, when of s sudden she would come to the surface with a surge that would throw her huge bulk half-way out of the wa ter. ____ Blair Klictiii for Both Tsrms,—The Missouri De mocrat (Republican)of the 9th, Buys: “We were premature, it appears, in conceding the election of Bsrrelt for the short term. By official count there are over two hundred Republican tickets which were polled for ‘ P. Blair, for Congress,’ which he has not received credit lor so far, and which gives him a ma jority over Bairett of fifty or sixty votes."

The party arrived at Niagara on Tuesday, and the ca pacious accommodations of the Cataract, the Interna tional and the Clinton, were opened wide for their re ception. Yeaterday quite a Urge delegation of our citizens went down to make a friendly call upon our Southern vuitors, with the in'ention of making them more particularly the guests of Buffalo. A committee consisting of E. 0. Spaulding, P. Doraheimer, A. M. Clapp, E. R. Sewett, W. R. Barr and T. T. Bloomer, tendered an invitation to the excursionists to visit Buffalo at such time aa might suit their convenience. And a committee on the part of our Southern visitors, consisting of Col. Neil, of Mississippi, Dr. Jsckson, of Tennessee, and Judge Kennedy, of New Orleans, tendered their thanks, and accepted the invita tion.
