NEWS ITEMS. The Virginia Democratic State con vention met in Richmond on August 3lst. A straight Douglas ticket was nominated and much enthusiasm ami coufidenca prevailed, lion. John S. Williams, M. C. for the Norfolk Dis trict in a speech to-night heartily ad vocates the election of Douglas. Senator Douglas spoke in Norfolk, Virginia on the 20th he met with an enthusiastic reception. During the speech one of the BreckenrMgo elect or* nsked him would the South be justified in seceding from the Union, in case of Lincoln's election, lie an swered N lie was then asked what action he would take in case the South did secede and he answered, boldly, that should they try it, he would serve them as they had served John Brown. This bold declaration, made in the presence and teeth of the.disunionists, elicited loud expressions of applause and admiration. Hundreds of hereto fore opponents declared their intention to support him. The people of the South are loyal to the Union, and the politicians cannot lead them astray. In another part of to-days paper we publish a story in regard to the resus citation of the pirate Hicks. Of course it is a hoax but it seems to have kick ed up considerable of an excitement iii the Metropolis. If such a thing had occurred, the questions arising out of it would have attended subjectibr con siderable discussion, and the fact it self would have made a iirst rate nu cleus lor a sensation romance. If is reported that Ganibaldi has landed in Calabria, with a large force and was expected soon to make a de scent upoiv Naples. Ganibaldi is a cruel thorn in the sklu of the Bour bons. He also intends to wrest Vene tia from the grasp of Austrian tyranny which if he attempts it will further complicate the political affairs of the continent and perhaps be the cause of a general European war. The San Francisco correspondent of the New York Tribune says: The Breckinridge men had a ratifi cation in the evening of the 27th ult.— The posters invited all "Democrats'" to bo present. The Douglas men under stood that they were included under this invitation, and they atttended, out numbered the other faction, and Out voted them whenever any question was put to the meeting. Breckinridge has lew sympathizers in this city, outside of the list of Federal office holders and professional politicians. Calhoun Ben ham, U. S. District Attorney, tried to speak at the meeting, but he was fre quently interrupted by such cries as "dry up your hands are bloody "who killed Broderiek?" and so forth. Such questions made Benham very angry, and the more furious he became the more they taunted him. The Breckinridge men will probably attempt to hold no more ratification meetings in San Francisco. The New York Times of Monday says that it has the best authority for stating that the Mexican question is on the point of being peremptorily set tled by a decisive intervention of four ot the great powers, viz: France, Eng land, Spain and Mexico, to which they invite the adhesion of the United States —but which they propose to carry into effect even should'the United States refuse that adhesion. The basis of toleration for all religions opinions, and of a modified establishment for a lio tnan Catholic church, arc Understood to have been already accepted hy the Constitutionalists under Juarez on the one part, and the clerical party under Miramon on the other.

We urge Democrats and Repub licans to be prescnt to judge and decide wise ly men should hear both sides. Our Ger man fellow citizens should be present to hear our able German elector, Joseph Weinn man, who will speak in German. Give one day to the Country and let all thoso who are opposed to sectionalism, who abhor the disunion tendencies of abolition ism as taught by the followers of Lincoln and of slave-codism as taught by seces sionists of the Yancey, Brcckcnridge school of disorganize!s, be present oa that day. Come from the farm, from the work shop and from places of business and listen to the eloquent and able speakers, who will address the Democracy on the 17th. It is time for the conservative and patriot ic and Union loving men, to arouse them selves and fight in the cause of the noble Douglas who boldly tells the secessionists to their teeth that if they dare strike down their country's flag, they shall suffer the traitors doom. Such patriotic words in this timeserving age should knit the hearts of Union men everywhere to Douglas.— Compare such acts with the fear-shaking Lincoln, who says he dare not visit his own birth place for fear of tar and feathers. A national party and a national candidate indeed When he fears to visit the home Henry Clay and the conservative State of Kentucky Comment is unnecessary*. Douglas animated by a devotion to the country, with warm and ardent admirers in every part of the country can visit every State from Maine to the Gulf.ai.d carry with him whenever he goes the hearts and the love of his countrymen. Choose ye Will ye vote for the muzzled Lincoln—who has Irccu tula W I •iUticc, and nkiu la not suttercd to have the liberty to speak, or even to wiite a letter on political subjects.

The writer is as sured that the citizens of Red Wing fully appreciate tho necessity of securing the Zumbrota trade. For that purpose all our citizens have contributed to the thorough improvement of the road leading to Zum brota, and we say to the writer and to the people of Zumbrota, that they will reap the advantages of tho good road we have made. The proper pride of our Zumbrota neigh bors in promoting the prosperity of that town, we do not believe will blind them to the necessities and wants of other parts of the county. We know that Zumbrota is on the direct lino to Ashland, Concord, Wasioja end Albert Lea. Your people should also remember, that you have a good bridge built at the County expense. The people of Red Wing say to you that should any casualty happen to that bridge that they are .willing to be taxed to replace it but your people should remember that there are other towns and farmers elsewhere, with heavy crops'- that are equally entitled to consideration and if they require abridge the people of Zumbrota should be the last to refuse their application and deny their just requests. It is clear that the North Braiich of the Zumbro should be bridged at the old ford luidgu haviiig been liuiu at Zumbrota tue justice of the demand is thereby increased. The people of Pine-Island and the farmers in that viciuity want it, and they should have it, and we say that the citizens of Red Wing will do all they can to complete the road West and South of Zambrota, so that the trade naturally flowing through Zumbrota will come there. We believe wehavo thus freely given expression to the \iews of thu citizcus of Red Wing and can assure our friends that there was no intention to ignore the claims of Zumbrota, As for the Republican proclivities of Zumbrota, thai has nothing to do with the OCT There is now growing in the gardens of Moorsend, near Uhcltanham, England, an ztraordinary white rose-tree, thirty feet iu height.

He spoke at Norfolk tho other day, to an im mense concourse of people, and boldly told the disunionists that the Jackseniui doctrine of hanging for traitors was his creed. The people of Norfolk endorsed him, and so it is nil over tho South.— The political' revolution' now going on is unequalled in the history of politics.— The same may be said at the North. 'TIs more quiet but hardly less extensive. The people are down, on the mum candidates who have keepers appointed to watch them, who if they dared to write a letter or make a speech Avould necessarily destroy them selves. They hold opinions they date not express—not so with Douglas, tho more the man and his principles aVe discussed the more popular fhoy both become For'the Sentinel. RQAiVftlATTEitS. ?. Zumbrota, August 21st, 1860: W. ,. W. PHELPS, DEAR SIB :—\Va. arc glad to sec by your last paper that active measures have been taken by the citizens Of Red Wing to improve the roads leading to the country. This wo consider very, de sirable on all accounts, yet as citizens of Zumbrota wo consider our trade and busi ness of some consequence and of growing importance. Wo know that three loads of wheat will cross our stream on its way to market, where two will cross it at any other point, above or bclow-to Red Wing, therefore We knowing theae things think it a little strange, to say tho least, that ini a notice of improvements upon roads which lead as directly to this point as any other for at least twelve miles, that no mention should bo made of us at all that we should be ig: nored entirely. Lake City people have an idea of policy, when they tap the Red Wing trade at this point, and have spent much money in making good roads to this point, and last fall as many as thirty loads of wheat have been sent to Lake City in a day by an agent of that town established here. As a citizen of Goodhue and of Zumbrota, interested alike in my own interest, and I claim for others also, I suggest to you that a fair consideration of tho business inter ests of Red Wing, which I understand to be the object of these improvements, would require a fair notico of all points situated on the same great route, which all wo have to say as far as Red Wing is concerned, is .'. exchangee brings the gladdcontinue this session uu^l .11 the affair• -'j« COUNTY A A I S (ling confession: their" »u A sii .. lit not that tho minds of some were so in I fore-themj and we hope they- will patiently' «..m0(i riin«t him «Wt »«,,ia STRIPPING OFF THE MASK. President Buchanan, in his reply to the British government, which urging upon the United States the necessity oi using more means for the suppression of the slave trade, has cleverly turned the table upon the di plomatic hypocrisy of our. .British cousins. The slave trade, at present, is almost en tirely supported by. the demand fair slave labor in Cuba, a Spanish colony. Spain.by the treaty 1820 with Great Britiu,,agreed to abolish tho slave-trade in- Cuba, for. theaffairs sum of two niillion of dollars.. Britain, therefore has had iu.hor power, any. time the past forty years, to nearly crush out, at a Word, the African Slave trades *, and yet, In stead of attempting, it in this straight for ward manner,, and soliciting the humanita rians of France and the United Slates,, to practice what they preach, and to contri bute to necessary funds, she" has preferred to expend, and induce us to expend, during that period, something like thirty millions of dollars, besides wasting oyer a thousand lives, in maintaing nearly useless fleets upon the pestilential African coast and in: theboldly Gulf of Mexico The President, has sug gested to Lord John -Russell the: existence of the significant facts, and peihaps Lord John may discover that it would be as chris tian like to.firstremove tho beam from his own eye, as to commence by. requesting us to extract the mote from ours. HOME'S S A N A SCALES. We take pleasure in chronicling the vari ous and multiplied improvements in the use ful machinery of the day. In this instance in calling the attention ef ever/ one using a scale, to the great improvements found in Howe's STANDARD SCALE. The principle of leverage as used in every scale heretofore manufactnred is the same as in that of scales fifty years ago an although the manufact ure of portable platform scales is more mod ern, still the old-fashioned check rods, with the platform resting and wearing upon the knife edges, has been the only scale ottered to the public. he Howe's scale requires no pit, which.in a prairie covntry particular ly, is of great advantage, and all friction, in stead of being received on knife edges, as in others, is by an ingenious device received the road stretching into the intern* At right on chilled iron balls, and it will weigh accu rately cither in or out of level.

Hoping you will receive these lines with the same candor in which they were writ ten, I remain, \ery respectfully *f% stance of this, we will mention that one of their two hundred ton scales put up seven feet out of level, has been in use four years, weighs as accurately to-day, as when first put down.

Ho had, Re said, on one occasion, been invited to go into Ken tucky and revisit some of the secnes with whose history his father in lifetime had been identified. On asking by letter wheth er Judge Lynch would be present, he re ceived noresponseI'j and ho therefore came to the conclusion that the invitation was a trap laid by some designing to invoigle hint, into a Slave State for the purpose of doing violcnco to his person. ilore is a man running for President of the Uuited States, who says ho is so obnox ipus-^iiot personally, bat oMng-to thb» po litical principles he advocates—to knr*Teo plo «f the slave holding States^ that 1* can not visit the homo of his father,without dan per of being subjected topersonal violence. This is Mr. Lincoln's own confession. We do not justifiy or dojTcni this Southern sen timent, but desire to point to tho fact that it exists auy'ohe believe that it would be in the least degree mitigated by Lincoln's election? Par from it. jJLt/.wo'd gather strength from his administrative acts his anti-slavery messages, and his abolition appointments. We would undoubtedly be hold, during his Administration, oven should the Union survive it tine' startling circum stance of a,President, of the JJnited States detered from setting foot in one-half of the Union, for fear of. incurring, .personal out rages and violence^ at the hands of the peo ple. How far removed is* such"it state of from civilwar? Does it not become conservative men, therefore, to ponder upon, tho results, which will certainly .transpire in the event of Lincoln's. election? Is a Hepublican victory worth its inevitable cost? ion -L,-:~ How1 different- it.is -with Douglas. Bo has been denounced at tho South, with a violence only.equalled by thesdotninciation heaped upon Lincoln. Many Southern ex tremists undoubtedly prefer the election of the Northern Sectional candidate, to the success of Judge Douglas 'and for obvious reasons. Yet the Democratic candidate has faced the fire-eaters and-secessionists, and in the chief cities of the South, .battled for the Union and tho success of sound constitutional priciples. No fear" of "lynch law" detered the* infrpeid Douglas, from car rying the war into the hot-beds of secession and treason. At Boston, he denounced Northern sectionalism and :.t Norfolk, with fully as much force and power, he condemed Southern sectionalism. Douglas combats the enemies of the Union wherever they are to be found. He does not, like Abolition oratory grow bold in denunciation of South ern radicals, at Boston, while speaking to a Northern audience but he goes right where the evils exist, and face to face, with the Secession leaders, brands them as disunion ists and traitors, before their own people. Who is the bust man for President:— Lincoln, who boo-hoos and snivels, at Springfield, that ho cannot visit a slave State for fear ofa coat tar and feathers, or something worse, or the gallant Douglas, who proclaims to the Southern ultraists, from their own door-steps, that if they at tempt disunion he will treat them as old Hickory did tho South Carolina nullifies? In whoso hands can the destinies of the Union be most safely confided, Lincoln or Douglas? RVJIOUED RESUSCITATION O HICK?, E I A E The New York Leader of Saturday pub lishes the following article, which i3 "im portant if true," and any way is calculated to make a sensation: There is now no further use in conceal ing that Albert W. Hicks, who was ostensi bly executed for piracy on Bedloo's Island, 02 the 13th of last July, is still living, thouzh in a dangerous St^'O but likely to" 'recover the full use of his faculties and .'jmbs. The sight ol his left "eye is gone, and his left arm and left leg continue, paralyzed but apart from these injuries he. would appear to have suffered nothing, and his residence at his sister's house in Poughkeepsie has proved every way beneficial. It will be remembered that, much com ment was excited by the utterly fearless manner in which Hicks conducted himself previous to his execution. He laughed at the idea of the gallows, and was only anxious as he repeatedly said, to have things conducted according to agreement." In this agreement it is now bolcived that a prominent.federal officer had part and it is on record, in the daily papers, that lie was present at the execution wearing his deputy marshal's badge, although no longer in the marshal'd force. ,,••,'*.••• It is also remarked at the time that Hicks was only pulled up a distance of two and a half feet—utterly insufficient to break his neck and that he was!only allowed to re main thirteen minutes, hanging. He was then cut down and pronounced dead, after which his body was immediately handed over to the care of Doctors J. T. IJuJl and Henry D.'O'iVeily, of Brooklyn. Thesi gentlemen are responsible for his resurrection, and the electro chemical bath,.invented by Professor Vorgues, was the immediate instrument. The body of the pirate was wrapped in warm blankets and removed at once to the house of Dr,' O'.Kielly, in Brooklyn, where Doctors O'Bielly and McIUery, of this city, weio in Attendance. Th* pulse was found to be wholy quiet, but after various experi ments the medical men came to the conclu sion that it was only a case of suspended animation. The body was therefore at once placed in the electro-chemical bath, and while subjected to the charges of the battery, and the action of the acids, Dr. Crane com menced a series of experiments for the infla tion of the lungs. In the course of about two hours these were partiaVly successful, the pirate beginning to give faint indications of resperations and these cheering signs animated the medical men iu attendance to redoubled exertions. A cautery was applied to .lie right foot, and received anwer in an immediate contraction of the leg the same experiment was repeat ed under the right ear, taking care not to in jure thejugular vein, ana the head at once commeuutd .to roll in a manner indicating ac ute feeling. Very fclowly, but seadily, Albert W. Hicks regained conciousuess, though for several days unable to speak, his throat being too severely injured. It was then found that his left eye—tlie side on which the noose had been—had lost all power of sight and that his left arm and his left leg were utter ly paralysed. In this condition he was con veyed to Poughkeepsie, where his-sister, Mis. Cravan, lives and under her roof he is now sheltered, though the friends of the fam ily do not desire to give too-much publicity to the fact n* n«~n„ %. 11. S a a S a For sale by TIIOMA.S S.
