On last Thursday all the elements of op position to Democracy met in the Court House in this place to form a district, and county ticket. The following gentlemen were appointed conferees: Congressional Conferees—S. E. Walton, Jacob Melick. Senatorial Conferees—Thos. E. Eves, J. P. I Taggart. Representative Conferees—Benj. P. Fort ner, Andrew Madison. There were no instructions for any candi dates, though a motion was made to instruct for Dr. George W. Lott for Congress. It was voted down by a vote of three to seven, as we are told, for we were not there. This was unkind to the Doctor, but probably aJtM from the fact that he has occasionally the Democratic ticket, and so far as learn, would not go into the foolish Nothing organization. The time fora iJHy ing of the conferences was fixed for the 2otn September, which will be next Suoday.— This must be a Hindoo performance. The following persons were nominated as a coun ty ticket, by an indiscriminate vote of any person who chanced to be present, for there was no pretence that the voters represented the sentiment of the people. Prothonotary—B. F. Hartman. Register and Recorder—S B. Bowman. Commissioner—Elisha Hayman. Treasurer—S. B. Diemer. Auditor—Gilbert H. Fowler. Some, and perhaps all, of these men would make competent officers, but as much can be said of the Democratic nominees. Though one of the Democratic nominees may have been misl-d into the cbmp of the political enemy on several occasions, his opponent, like all the above ticket, is a Ife long opponent of Democracy. So nothing is to be made by any Democrat supporting a single nominee of the Opposition, and the line of principle is the only safe one. Tbe Keacllon. Every body went into business beyond his means, and the result is a general explosion in the money market. Banks break by the score, and merchants and manufacturers are involved in the general crash. Iron manu facturers sold rails lo Railroad Companies at double profit*, but for slock as pay. The market i now glutted with such stocks ; and me manufacture's have no money, while the Railroad Company has a crushing debt hang ing over it, for the h : gh prices it paid for ev ery thing in stock. Prices of all things went op to an nnmloral point, because credit was cheap. The expan sion benefited no persons except slew shrewd speculators, but the depression will squeeze many a man to ruin. The banks now refuse to discount, and the heads of the commercis! interest have the paper protested. This is all the necessary and natural result of a de parture from sound principles, and the 100 free use of credit. The lesson is an old one, an impressive one; but in many cases ■ dear bought one. The New York Post says: "The amount of floating railroad debt pded on the city ol New York ia stated, we know not on what authority, lo be quite as much as tweoiy-four millions ol dollars. This ia mostly al enor mous rates of interest—from two lo four per cent, a month. There is, ss there ought lo be, a pretty thorough collapse in railroad ■locks of the speculative class, including some that have paid regular divi dends. Tli* probability is, that many ol them will disappear entirely from the market in the course of a few months. The backbone of our etock exchange is growing weaker every day, and when it can no longer carry its inflations by doping outside capitalists, many will fall never to rise again." "We are told, on good authority, that the Reading Railroad Company is now paying four per cent, a month on a considerable pro portion, if tint all of its floating debt. Tried by the standard of moral rectitude, this i* no belter than fraud. Many other companies are in an equally bad or worse condition." A New Way to Nell Books. A fashion ha; started it) the cities, which, though perhaps more honored in the breach than the observance, sometimes betides luck to some fellow. It ia to tell books at the publishers' price and give the purchaser a chance to draw some gift worth from 25 cts. to #lOO. As the books are offered at trade sales, the vendors can afford to distribute gifts with them, and really do so. They are not such irresponsible vagrants as origina ted the gift concert humbug. Recently we published an advertisement far -k~ Uaummy ' of Sew York, for which we ordered a copy oi Dante as pay, thinking nothing about the gift. The book came, and after reading some eighty pages in it, there fell out from the leaves three fine gold shirt studs worth #3.00." The advertisement of Duane Rulison, Phil adelphia, is for an enterprise of the same sort. -Court 'Proceedings.

But it-did not appear otr-ar>y wtreitoer Hi to rvevpaae -was toe fore or after the lease herein eurt, nor that "Stroup knew of it. There was no wilful in terference in bad faith, and the defendants did not complain of it vatrtil'enit brought. The verdicts were for the plaintiff in one sail lor #387 14, in the other lor #199 OS. OR motion-of Mr. Bockulew, CHARLES M. BLARES, E.g., was sworn and admitted to practice as en attorney in the several courts ! this coun'y. He had previously been ad mitted in the Supreme Court for the Slate of Illinois, and was admitted ou the principle of reciprocity. The case of Com. us John Mason for for. and bas. was settled by the parties. The Grand Jury returned the following in dictments in addition to those we noticed last week: I Com. vs. Samuel Kostenborder: for selling liquor on Sunday. Not a true bill—county to pay the coats. Com. us. Henry Faus and John Comer: for not repairing roads, a true bill. Com. vs. Hendrick V. VV. Vanacket: fot telling liquor without license, a true bill. The case of Catharine Tanner vs. John D Weaver was next tried. It was an action for a bteacb of promise of marriage, and though it was not proved in express words, iliwett dence clearly proved by all the facts in the case that a promise existed. The defendant had courted the plaintiff for some eighteen months, and letters were given in evidence which indicated the most tender relations, consisting only with n pre mise of maf iage. It was, however, proved in defence that Miss Tanner afterthe alleged promise of marriage) denied that it existed. Other witnesses tes tified that after the etiit was brought the de fendant said she would not have sued Wea ver except to spite Mrs. Remley, his mother. This was what the defendant's counsel relied on, but in the opinion of the cnutl and jury it did not excuse his conduct, and the plain without license, a true bill. Com. vs. Isaac Leidy and Elisha Hartman: for not opening a road, a true bill. Com. vs. John V. Cresswell, Darnel Dull, and James Dull: for nuisance, a true bill. Com. vs. John Lewis and George Dills, for not repairing roads, a true bill- Same vs. Same : fur not repairing road, a true bill. The oase of Adam Gable'vs. the Adminis trator of Engle Fox was next tried. It was a claim of over $3OO for boarding and attend ing Engletfox in his last illness. It was prov ed that for some six or eight weeks his death Fox required very w4bb'lf*trtfo#j and careful nursing, Tot claimed $25 per claimed $3 a week, Mhim proved that there ivad i cSoifett Mr. Gable was to board KeV ( : $1 per week. The jury rendered a verdict for the plaintiff for $147 7t. Jonathan Modeller vs. Stephen Baldy was I a claim of some $l5O for building a stable, and other work. The evidence as to the sta- ■ ble made out that part of the ease, but the plaintiff failed lo prove that Bddy agreed to pay for any of the other work, or ordered it to be done. So thai part fell. Verdict for plaintiff for $77 50. Clark and Freeze for plaintiff; Baldy for defendant. j The case of James Ralston vs. admin istrator of James Ralston, Jr, was next tried. Claim fot bearding defendant in his last iti nes?. Verdict for defendant. The following is the report of the Grand Jury as presented on Wednesday: To the Honorable the Judges of the Court of Quarter Sessions of the Peace in undfor the County of Columbia: The Grand Inquest of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, inquiring for the body of the County of Columbia, respectfully REPORT: That they have examined the public build ings belonging to the said county and find them io good condition, the jail particularly* being neat and clean. We would respectfully recommend the Commissioners of the county to appropriate $l5O of the County fitnus for the purchase of a Clock to te put in the Bel fry or Steeple ol the Coorl House provided the citizens of Blusmsburg sanely them that they will pay the balance of said purchase money of said Clock. We would also rec ommend that the Supervisors of O-ange town ship be notified as soon as can be, lo open and make a mad which is already laid out, leading from Matthew M'Doweli's Furnanoe around the hill lo Stony Brook. All of which is respectfully submitted this 9.h day of Sep-' (ember. A. D 1857. CHARLES KAIILER, Foreman. The indictments were mostly found on the return of constables; and, the defendants not being ready for trial, were continued to the next term. GT Toe extensive Iron Manufacturing Firm of Colwell & Co. have suspended.— They own the furnaces and iron foundries at Conahohocken. In the department of Iron pipe for water and gass purposes, they have no auperiors in the United Slates. But a few years ago they furnished a lot of new pipe for the city of Boston, some of the pipe be ing thirty six inches in uiamelor. And tbey were, we.have understood, to supply the city of Brooklyn. Their difficulties were occa sioned, it is said, by 100 liberal investments in railroad enterprises. NEW PATENT.— Mr. Hiram F.

The honr of Court approaching, the Soci ety adjourned. EF* We tegrei to have to announce the suspension of the firms of Reeves, Buck & Co., and Reeves, Abbott & Co., manufactu rers of railroad iron, which look place yer terday, in consequence of their inability to realize the necessary means to meet their en gagements. These firms suspended payment three years ago, and obtained an extension from their creditors upon a favorable exhibit of their assets, every dollar of which, princi pal and interest, as we are assured, was paid promptly at maturity. Tltey were in a fair way to recover themselves, and to continue in operation their extensive works, which employ ovjr two thousand workmen, when the panic in railroad securities, and the con vulsion in the money market, cut short iheit orders for rails, upon the sales of which Ihey relied for means to meet their current en gagements. They are represented to have made lirge profits in the last two years, and we are assured have raw materials enough, when worked info shape, to pty all Their in debtedness, and real estate in addition, at a fair valuation, lor double the amount, alt of which can be made available upon of confidence, and a renewal of the Hem and lor railroad iron. Finding it impossible in the present condition of things to procure funds to pay their notes, even at enormous sacrifices which they have made, they have been compelled to suspend for the present.— It is to be hoped that this suspension may be only temporary, and that the extensive works opnraled by these firms, so important to the general community, may continue in opera lion. Double Tragedy. Canton, Bradford County, Pa. Sept. 12. ! W. H. Greeman Esq., a lawyer of this State committed suicide to day, by cutting his I throat, while laboring under a fit of delirium tremens. Mr. Spatoldin'g, the proprietor of the Canton Hotel, fell in a fit on seeing Mr. Graanman'e ewrpee, aud died immediately. There is the greatest excitement prevailing here, as the parties were widely known and respected.

The Maiae Law ■ Failure. Everywhere,the expenmenlof the Maine Liquor Law has proved a failure, end those who were among its most zealous advocates ara confessing timer mistake, and repudiating the idea of eompulsoryebsiinenoettyon which it was based, as a oere for the evils of in temperance. Tfce latkst instance of a con fession of ibis kind, figs just come under our notice, in Jt letter froerf Hon. Henry Wilson, one of the unllMf BtaMs Senators Ttom Mas sachusette, 10 Jo|(UKSou|li, the great tem perance orsmo wflfhts believe, has himself poMitHy fti tola of faith in the Maine Law. An eztracl liom the letter has been heretofore printed, but it was not until within the last fw days that it appeared en tire : "NAUCK, MASS., June 20, 1857. j "Dear Sir : —ls rssponse to your inquiries, I have to say that the Maine Law in Massa- I chusells has not met the expectations ol its Itiends. I advooated and voted for the law in the Legislature, end I have suppnr'ed it before the people, and I intend to continue to |do so. But the law has accomplished far less than ita friends expected when they pass ed it. In the first place tho law his not been fairly tested, owing to the embarrassments thrown in its way by the courts end juries. They may be corrected in process of time. At any rate, I hope so. Another cause of failure is that its friends depended too much upon the taw, and too little upon moral ac tion. W oik thai OogfM to have been done has been nbgfecied, because the friends of the cause have placed ao much reliance up on the force of law. I think they begin to see this, and am confident that they will hereafter not only sustain and foroe the law, but uphold it by appeals to the moral senti ments of the people. My idea is that we want laws—such laws as can be enforced, and that appeals should be continually made to the heart, conscience and reason of the people, to abandon the use of what the law proscribes. Yours truly, "HENRY WILSON." Admirably stated.

After describing how Kan sas might have been peaceably settled, the .editor adds: " But this peaceful proceeding would not have met the American requirement for ex citement; so men from, the south, who had never owned a negro, and never had money enough at any one time to pay for a negro's suit of summer clothing, marched to Kansas mm they meet, and fight, snqspecalate, and when thecnuntry is really sailed, and quietness and order succeed the disturbance and trials of pioneer life, half of thrfn will find the place too dull, and will seek fbme new field of ex citement. where danger and turmoil and con tention will pay lor existence and take from life its ennui." The Sub-Treasury. In "making chWtge" at* "or desk the other day, says the New Haven Register, there tnrned *p one of the old copper devices got up by the opponents of the "Independent Treasury" system in 1837. It is in the form of a penny—and has upon it the figure of a ship called the ''Ejjyariment," whose spars are ail goiifg 6y the while the light ning is represented se giving it the strongest kind of lick! Surrounding it are the words, "Van Buren's metallic currency." Twenty years had gone by—and to those of us who remember the warfare ol those days —how the Independent Treasury was inces- ridiculed and scouted; how wffemently the great statesmen of the opposition, predicted ruin to all business inter ests, if it was adopted ; how the timid trem bled, and the Democracy stood firm in faith of the measure which they had proposed; how the whole country was convulsed by mass meetings and violent harangues, how fear paralyzed business, and self protection closed the avenues to orvdit; how it* friends breasted the storm and alroveto convince its opponents ol the folly of their madness ; and how the Democratic paity, in 1840, were overborne by a panic Bloiwe resistless and ridiculous, growing out of the success of that measure ; to such, now that the Independent Treasury has long been conceded one of toe wisest plans ever adopted by our Government, there is "a sermon" fruitful of pleasing re flections. Ii tells of Demoeratio wisdom, ita strug gles, its endurance,its victorias; and it gives to Democratic faith in the intelligence nl the masses a firmer hold and a snore vigorous growth. Millions of these little scoffers at the "State Tlreasury" were dropped into the cur rents of trade to prejudice that measure; and they are occasionally "turning up," to remind us of ita usefulness, and the mistaken vio lence that opposed ita establishment. tJT Eleven persons, men, women, and boys were arrested In New York on Monday for passing a new counterfei>43 on the Hud son County Bank, Jera^rjy. 17* In New York-aba notes of the Ontario County Bank and the Bank of Orleans, at Al bion, N.

The Sheriff, Mr. Edward Young, entered Clark's room about that time with his breakfast, when the prisoner, parity concealed behind the door, suddenly pushed him violently against the wall, and then run out and quickly shut the door and boiled it. At the same lime, Mrs. Young, the Sheriff's wife, was taking breakfast to Mrs. Twiggs, Clark's accomplice in the poisoning affair.— Clark quickly shut that door also and bolted It, thus preventing the Sheriff and his lady from immediate pursuit. He then picked up '.he keys the Sheriff had left on the floor, ran down stairs pushing before him a young ladr son of the Sheriff, who was coming up stairs; unlocked the outer door of the jail, and es caped through the garden into an alley, and from thence into an out-lot of Mr. Deen, along the river bank, from whence it was his intention to wade through the river to the Blue Hill and conceal himself in the woods ontil night would aidbim in his fuither flight. In the meantime sever Sri of the other prison ers, hearing the noise, ran op stairs and lib erated the Sheriff and his lady from their in voluntary imprisonment. The alarm was then instantly given, and before Clark had crossed half the field, he was overtaken and brought back to bis cell where he now is se curely fastened by a chain to the floor, being both handcuffed and hoppled. in '.be night before his escape te had at tempted to break a hole through the flue of ihe chimney with a bone, but finding the fltio too small for him, he look the other slierna live related above.

Ttua'a CHANOXS.— The inventors of Steam power, Railroads, and machinery have dur ing thia century changed Ihe means and courses of living, while the discoveries of science have done even more for the ad vancement of human happiness and the a melioration of human soffering. Our fore fathers when they were sick, drank their bitter drugs thai did not cure, and bowed them down under diseases that are now easi ly broken. They tried crude roots and herbs, which r ailed them. Now scientific research has discovered that this peculiar property of one root and that ol artolher was requited. It is through this light, and on this principle Dr. Ayer has compounded his two great rem edies—Cherry Pectoral and Cathartic Pills.— He baa concentrated the curative virtues of our best vegetable remedies.

It was a conriot ship- It bnre as condemned prisorters Sir John Dean Paul and bis two partner*, Bate* and Sirahan; Redpath, a wholesale forger; Robeon, the Crystal Palace swindler j and Seward, a bar rister, who, after a successful career of fraud, that had lasted for more than twenty years, I had been finally delected. There men were | all educated, had enjoyed good social posi tion*, and were Apparently above the reach of tospiciqp. " The imputation of a petty false hood, of a mean shuffle," to quote the words of a London newspaper, "would hare filled them with indignation ; snd yet, at this mo ment, they wear the convict's dress, and herd with the common mob of vulgar criminals, the touch of whose passing garments would once have been helJ a foul pollution." It most be acknowledged that, whatever other faults England may have, aha at least vindicates the law, irrespective of rank and in fluence. This has been her boast forgener ations. Front the times when Bacon was stripped of his dignities—when Strafford was brought to the scaffold—when Earl Ferrers was hung for murdering his steward, down to our own day,no station has been high enough to protect a criminal fron, the justice of an outraged law. Neither rank, nor wealth, nor political importance—neither the friendship of the judges, nor a connection with the high est nobility, has bean able lo scteen the of fender. The court* stand above sttspioion. Juries are ftee from the imputation of being bribed. The freight of thia convict-ship ia a new proof, if one was wanting, that justice, in England, is inexorable as well as impar tial. Fracd itself—that vice of modem civ ilization, which so many consider compara tively venial—cannot escape. The commonwealths of these United Steles might lake a lesson from England. Political liberty is here in advance of what it is in Great Britain, especially political liberty in the Northern States; but personal rights ate hardly as secure, and crime is assuredly less certain of punishment. We could, if neces sary, quote numeroos instances where men, guilty ol climes similsr lo those of Sir John Dean Paul have escaped punishment. The records of the Courts, in this as well as in other States, show how frequently justice win It* t Ih* release of offender* who have wealth or political influence. Vainly may we boast ol our progress, vainly compare ourselves triumphantly with other people, while these things continue among us. In republics, even more than in monarchies, the law must be vindicated; for the law, in free governments especially, is the foundation ol order and prosperity. Laxity in administer ing the law leads to indifference ; indifference lo anarchy; anarchy lo ruin.—Ledger. New York Commission Agency. The V. B. PAl.mkr & Co , have established, in connection with (heir office, Tribune Buildings, New York, a Commission Agency, .through which persons residing out of the HHjmnd in any Stale of the Union, will he to purchase goods at the lowest mar-, HlHRces, and with every attention paid nk quality, &c. They have associated gentlemen who have had great efjwfrience in purchasing end selling goods, of every description, and will doubtless give satisfaction to all who may transact business through their agency. They will execute orders of any amount, or small, and for any xrlicle that can be purchased in that city. The necessary amount of CASH must ac company all orders—except when payment can be made orr delivery of the goods, which is usually the case if sent by express—unless the parties of whom tha goods are purchased assume the responsibility. To avoid delays and perplexing mistakes, great care should be used in making up or ders, that they may be clear anu perfectly intelligible. Tbeircommission charge on orders amount ing to $5 and less, is-25 cents; exceeding $5, and not above SlO, five per cent. On orders of a larger amount, five per cent is charged on SlO of the same, and 2i per cent on the balance. ur Our Black Republican contemporary, the Lewisburg Journal, has grown immensely eloquent over the vole lor Rollins, of Missou ri. It says. " Let the cannon's peal swaken every heart to this truth : that the murder* and outrages committed by Missouri Ruffians in Kansas, ur.der the protection of the Democratic party, which the party in Pennsylvania pronounced all a lie, 47,000 hones: voters in Missouri de nounce and manfully condemn where Ibe effec' of their noble conduct will be most ap preciated—at the Ballot-box." The beauty of the matter about all these hallelujahs euog over Rollins is, that while he is trampled as the Republican candidate, be is tbe owner, as be says himself, in one of his letters, of between twenty and thirty slaves, and has the control of as many more tnal he does not own ; while Stewart, the Democratic candidate—now Governor elect never owned a slave in bis life. No doubt Rollins is as good a Black Republican as any ol them, and quite as sincere. Every one of the leaders of that party, for aught they care about the negro, wauld just as soon own him as any other properly, if their own State laws would perm it them. But since they dare not nwn him, they put him to the next best use they can for themselves—they make an in strument of him to put themselves in office.
