Thos. P. AMrBELL, Eko., of Huntingdon
county, was yesterday Dominated by nrrhnnalion
as the candidate of the Democracy of this dis
trict for President Judge. He is a gentleman
of prepossessing appearance and pleasing u l
drrss. He ia a lawyer of acknowledged ability
and profound research. His niaie is placed at
the mast-head of the Sentinel and we beleive
he can and will be elected over Judge Taylor.

The conference, which met at Scdford on the
2nd instant, nominated, unanimously, Col. John
Kean, of Cambria, and Wm. P. Schell, Esq., of
Fulton, as the candidates of the democratic
party of this district for the Legislatue. The
name of Col. Kean has been at our mast head
since his nomination by the county convention,
of June last, and wc this week take pleasure in
placing along side of it the name of Wm. P.
Schell, as bis colleague. That both these gen
tlemen arc deserving of the suffrages of the
democratic party of Cambria, there can be no
doubt, and if we are to judge from the fact that
there is no opposition manifested towards either
of them, by members of their own party, we
must unhesitatingly say, that their election is
certain, and the triumph of the democracy will
Col. Kean is known to each and every demo
crat of this county. Born amongst us, he has
by untiring industry, and great perseverance,
established for himself a name near and dear
to all of you. He lias always been an indus
trious, hard-working man, one of the people,
one whose feelings and interests are, and al
ways will be, with the laboring and industrious
classes, and it is enough to know that he is
honored and beloved by those who earn their
livelihood by the sweat of their brow, men

gratification to possess. He deserves your sup
port, and we hope each and every democrat in
this county will do their utmost for his election,
thereby promoting the success of the party, and
establishing the true democratic doctrine, prin
ciples, not men.
Wm. P. Schell, Esq., to many of you, is a
new man. For the Legislature he is a new man,
but when you are aware of the confidence re
posed in him, by the democracy of Bedford and
Fulton counties, and recollect that those two
counties recommended him with singular unan
imity, for the office, it would occur to you that
if he is a young man, he is old in the hearts of
hia friends and neighbors. Wc know him well,
and know him to be a competent, worthy, and
excellent young man, one deserving of your
support, one who, if elected, would reflect
credit upon the district, and attend strictly and
faithfully to his duties. Let every democrat
manfully support him, and let Cambria in Octo
ber next, send greeting to the democracy of the
State, an increased majority for Messrs. Kean
and Schell, an unprecedented majority for our
gallant candidate for Governor, Hon. Wm. Big
ler, the Raftsman of the Susquehanna, for
Gen. Seth Clover, our candidate for Canal Com
missioner, for the able, learned, and erudite
candidates for the Supreme Bench, and last,
though not least, in importance, the .whole
county ticket, one and all. The California
Banner will then be yours, and the motto of the
Pennsylvania of the Pacific Eureka inscribed
upon it, will ehine with tenfold brightness upon
the summit of our own Alleghenics, and here
after lead us on to victory and the maintenance
of our time honored principles.
The Johnstown " Wreath," in speaking of the
nomination of Judge Taylor by the Whigs of
this district says: "In this nomination wc
heartily concur, and we arc sure Cambria will
give tier undivided support," and further that
"we do not remember to ever hare witnessed
such unanimity as is now manifest in this county,
ia iavor ot Judge T. as the candidate for the
next election." The editor is certainly mistaken.
there is no unanimity existing in this county for
Judge Taylor, and there arc large numbers of
higs who will not support him under any cir
cumstanccs. Whigs and Democrats respect him
as a citizen, but the Democracy and many mem
bers of the Whig party find fault with his slow
manner of dispatching business, and feel ag-

courts each of which increases the taxes of every

he goes to Washington, Fayette, Greene, Bed

it is quite probable that he will visit Cambria
about the 1st of October. If so, he will receive
a hearty welcome from our hardy mountaineers

From the west come the most flattening ac

some years he has been an Associate JuJo'e of

eloquent tribute to his memory ;
He had known the honored deceased, as a
public agent, a private gentleman, intimately
and for many years ; and he felt that the coun

The whig press throughout the State (says
the Pittsburg Dispatch,) arc very clamorous for
a representation in the canal board, and call
upon the democracy to vote for " honest John
Strohm," in order that they may be able to keep
an eye upon what goes on in tlie office of the
board. This sounds very fine but do the whigs
act up to their preaching or like boatmen look
one way and pull another ? Can they point to
au. instance where they allowed such views of
fairness to influence them in electing a democrat
when they could succeed in placing one of their
own party in power ?
Take our own county, for instance and when
did they ever place a democrat in the board of
county commissioners, or allow one to be put
there when they could help it? In the present
contest the democrats have nominated Capt. J.
D. W. White of Manchester for commissioner
a gentleman in every way qualified for the sta
tion, and against whom there can be no objec
tion. Let the whig press show their faith by
their works, and recommend their party friends
to give the democrats a representation by voting
for Mr. White for commissioner, and they may
catch some democratic and independent votes
for Strohm. Until they do this, wc must set
down their outcry upon this subject a3 pure

William Scaright, of Fayette county, who
was a prominent candidate for Canal Commis
sioner, in the Reading Convention, in a letter to
R. C. Hale, Esq., of Lcwistown, uses the fol
lowing language, which is highly creditable to
his democratic fidelity and consistency:
"Harvest being now over, I have gone to
work and will continue working, until the elec
tion, for the ticket, the whole ticket, and noth
ing but the ticket. Our friends in the southwest
have entered upon the campaign in good earnest,
and you may expect a good report from our lion
hearted democracy. I regard the usages of the
democracy as sound, and regular nominations
. as inviolable. I have iriven thirtv vcars of ser
vice to the cause of democracy, and I will devote
as many more years to that same just cause as
Providence will mete out to me of health and
strength. Yours very truly,
William Seabicut." .
Higgler in the JVortli.
An intelligent gentleman, who has travelled,
within the last two weeks, through considerable
portions of Northumberland, Lycoming, Clinton
and Clearfield counties, informs us, that of sev
eral hundred of whigs, with whom he conversed
upon the subject, only two of them ' declared
their intention to vote for William F. Johnston,
while the others are openly in favor of Bigler
and the Compromise. In Columbia county,
Colonel Joseph Taxton, heretofore one of the
staunchest and most influential whigs in the
State, openly repudiates Johnston and his Abo
litionism, and goes for Bigler and the Constitu
tion, while in Clarion, Mr. Benjamin Perry, well
known to our citizens as the " Iron King," ad
vocates the election of Bigler and Clover, with

The Captche of Lopez. Havana, Sept. 1st,
1851. General Don Narciso Lopez, Commander-in-chief
of the Republican forces, was taken
prisoner on the 29th of August, at or near San
Cristobal. He was secured hand and foot by
ropes, until some Spanish soldiers carac up to
the farm house where he was captured, and
then his hands were tightly bound behind him,
and he was hurried off to Bahia Honda, where
he was placed on board the steamer Pizarro.
At night on the 31st, Lopez was brought into
Havana, the Pizarro landing her prize at the
The news of Lopez's capture arrived at Ha
vana late at nijrht on the 2'Jth, but was not made
public until the morning of the 30th.
It is said that it was brought to the Captain
Genera! by express, in four hours from San
Cristobal, distance 48 miles, and that four horses
were killed by the rider, such was his speed,
and that the Captain General paid him $2,000
for the service.
The Execution. At the fatal hour General
Lopez was brought out, and ascended the plat
form with a firm step. His person was envel
oped in a white shroud. The executioner then
removed the shroud, and there stood the General
in his full military uniform before the assembled
His appearance was calm, dignified and heroic.
Not a muscle quivered. He looked upon the
preparations for death unmoved; his counte
nance changed not, and his whole bearing was
firm and manly.
The executioner now removed his embroidered
coat, his sash, cravat, and all the insignia of his
military rank, in token of disgrace.
General Lopez, with hi3 hands tightly bound
together in front, stepped forward, and in a
strong, clear voice, slowly spoke to those around
" I pray the persons who have compromised
me to pardon me as I pardon them.
" My death will not change the destinies of
Cuba." The executioner, standing a little
behind, here interrupted him iu an insulting
tone, with " Come be quick, be quick."
General Lopez, turning his head partly around,
fixed his eye on the man, and said sternly, grit
ting his teeth, "Wait, Sir." He then contin
"Adieu, my beloved Cuba! Adieu, my
The General then stepped back, seated him
self on the stool. A priest with the crucifix and
taper stood on one side of him, the executioner
on the other. The collar was then placed around
the prisoner's neck. The priest now placed the
crucifix between the General's hands, and just
as he was in the act of inclining his head to kiss
it, the executioner swung the fatal screw, and
the head of the unfortunate man at the same
instant dropped forward, touching the crucifix.
He never moved again. There sat the body of
one of the bravest men that ever drew breath,
but a moment ago alive, now a ghastly corpse.
The execution was conducted in the most or
derly manner, and in perfect silence. No shout
ing or any other exhibition of applause was
manifest. Whether this was the result of the
news from New Orleans, or the express orders
of the Captain General, is not known.
Immediately after the execution, General
Lopez's body was taken down, and privately

Blockade of the Mississippi.
New Orleans, Sept. 5. The U. S. steamer
Ve xin sailed from Pensacola on the 3d instant
to blockade the mouth of the Mississippi, and
intercept any expedition that may attempt to
leave with a view of invading Cuba.
The Vixen has been lying at Pensacola for
several days past undergoing repairs, but the
pressing nature of her orders has compelled her
to leave without finishing them, and but one of
her boilcra arc fit for use.
A Washington letter to the Journal of
Commerce says: "It is a remarkable, but not
well known fact that, in the archives of our
Government, we have an engagement made, in
Jackson's administration, between the United
States, England and France, to the effect that
Cuba shall not be Beized by cither party, and
that Spain shall remain in undisturbed posses
sion of the Island."
It appears that, notwithstanding the emigra
tion of the people, there has been an increase
of cultivation during the year 1850 to the ex
tent of 214,000 acres, and an addition to the
live stock on the various farms, equal to a mo
ney value of 1,230,000. This growth of pros
perity has resulted from the steady diminution
that has been going on in the number of smal
lings, and the introduction of British capital.

The garrote is a mode of punishment in Spain,

the throat of the victim, and one turn of the
screw produces immediate strangulation, It is
stated by some, also, that a sharp, broad blade
is inserted in the post, and that when the screw
is turned the knife penetrates the back of the
neck and severs the spinal chord. This produ
