Hereafter, the estab-j lisbnienl will be conducted by Wm. B. Sifes, Esq., who desigus uniting the Democrat and Stnlinel, and increasing the size, the appearance and general utility of the paper, so as to make it equal if not superior to any in the State. To hi3 charge we resign our trust, confident that he will so conduct both-papers, when united, as to merit the approbation of the citizens of this county. lie has the ability, the private worth, and unalterable attachment to the principles of the Democratic Tarty, to render complete satis faction to oar numerous patrons. He will pub lish a journal which, while it will prove to be iVif clpoi.loil advocate of the interests of the county, will recommend itself to your favor j irom its moral, instructive and useful tone. Jf incessant labor on his part, and a well founded desire to please, be indications of over-abundant success, ho is certain to receive it. Often have we thought that one well-conducted Democratic journal at this place was sufficient for the good interests of the party, therefore the union. We trust that the same cordial, flattering support, so generously extended to us by our friends may be bestowed upon our successor, whom we know to be most worthy of the same. Those subscribers who have paid us in ad vance will be furnished the number of papers to which they are entitled, while to those who have not paid, the paper will still be forwarded, confident that all will extend to it a generous and enthusiastic support. We have endeavored, luring the two and a half years wc have edited and controlled this paper, to discharge our du ties to the lest of our ability; to promote the harmony of our party; to further its interests by compromise and union ; to illustrate and make manifest its doctrines ; to increase the wealth, happiness and prosperity of the citizens; to encourage the improvements of the county ; and to treat our political opponents as fellow men, differing upon points of political faith. Whether successfully and courteously, or not, e thers may judge. To our kind, ever-to-be cherished patrons, for the sustenance they hare given, our heartfelt thanks are tendered, and the recollection of their generosity remains through life. To. cur brethren of the press, at Lome and Kbroad, we feel grateful for the many favors conferred time caunot obliterate nor new duties change the remembrance. AND. J. IUIEY. The Senator Question. The Whigs of this District seem to be in indescribable tribulation concerning who is to be cr who i3 not to be the candidate of their party for the office of Senator. Considerable ex citement prevails with regard to this matter, and criminations and recriminations thicken. The Cambrian of July 2?ih reads out of the Whig raaljs the i-eat Xestov of the party in this coun tyt R- 1; Jobnton, Esq , for which there is no Democrat but can throw up his cap and cry so mote it be..

Two watchmen, standing about 5C yards off, ran to him, as also Messrs. Renshaw, Rhodes and Dusenberry who lived near and were arous ed by the groans of the dying man. A physi cian was sent for but ere he came the wounded man was dead. He did not speak a word. Mr. Ogdcn states that when he first heard the groans, he distinctly heard a man running up Hay street from Penn to Liberty. Two watchmen about the time that Collins was discovered, started in search of tins murderers, but found no one in OK V-rj!ie streets. A few days previous Collins had in This possesTion a pocket book full of twenty dol lar gold pieces, ne had arrived in the city on Friday last from New Orleans. The body was recognized on Tuesday, by James A. Jackson formerly of this place, now of Pittsburgh, and a brother soldier of the deceased. The deceased has ndt resided in this county for some time. He leaves a wife, (formerly Miss Lieb) and one child, ho reside on the Portage Railroad, be twen PlVnes No. 2 and 3, in this county. This niysttriots murder is most remarkable, but wc hope soniVmforination may be obtained so as to bring the .suilty to justice.

The "Old Kentucky Homo" presents a fair and noble front, and her haidy Democracy have fought the battle well. The election of Euch men as Born and Bueckksbidge will meet with a hearty response from the Democracy of the old Keystone, who delight to learn of the suc cess of t wo such firm, unchanging and radical democrats. Previous to the election, a Whig correspondent of thc,Erie Gazette, writing from t'uo Ashland District, yields the following trib ute of praise to the talented aud gallant Breck enridge : "Letcher and Breckenridge caavas3 the dis trict together, epeakiug ence and sometimes twice every day. I have often heard of Gov. Letcher as an unrivalled etunip orator, but he must be heard to- be appreciated. , His forcible style aud manner, and hisinexhauetible fund of anecdote, are inimitable, and 4b e effect upon a promiscuous crowd indescribable. He is a per fect veteran iu the Whig ranks. Although 1 can seldom see anything in a Democrat I canf ap prove, much less applaud, I am constrained to say that Maj. Brackenridge is one of tho most gifted men in the nation. He is very youthful in appearance; tall and commanding, witholack hair and flashing eyes Ilis gestures are rapid and graceful, his language, pure and impassion ed, and in every reepect he is certainly a model of beauty, manliness and eloquence. I have heard many speakers, from Daniel Webster, down to a zealous Democratic leader iiyErie, but for puie, soul-stirring eloquence, Jhn C. Breckenridge stands unrivalled. Were he a Whig he would certainly be worthy to wear the mantle of Henry Clay." LOCAL AND EDITORIAL ITEMS.

Yesterday, Mr. Lewis RaJgers, exhibited to us a young chicken having fou legs and a double bill, which he procured fronia nest upon the farm, of James Myers. The latural part of the chicken was of the Chit tagou( breed, the two extra legs of the Shang hai. jy some means the egg was thrown out of the ned some ten hours previous to the fullness of hatcUng, otherwise a living and most singu lar specimen of nature would have existed. This strange production has been placed in al cohol to preserve it, and can be seen by the cu rious at My. Thompson's Hotel. James SinnLKY. This unfortunate man, found guilty of tha murder of his wife, will expiate his crime upon the gallows, in Hollidaysburg, on to-morrow Friday, 12th of August. It is stated by the journals of that place that he still preserves the same carelessness of demeancr, the same callous, recklessness of speech, that have characterized his conduct aud conversation ever bince the perpetration of the crime, for which he is bo soon to "Bhuffle off this mortal coil." A short time ago he addressed a letter to Gov. Bigler praying for a respite, but the Governor, we learn, has assured him that he cannot grant it. We pity the criminal notwith standing all his faults, but for his relatives, and especially those married, who are of great res pectability, wc, and others deeply feel. May their sorrows be lightened by the recollectiou of their own inuoceuce and the respect awarded them by "hosts of friends." We hope the wretched man has, ere this, exhibited some evi dence of contrition, repenting of his rankoffencej and making due preparation to meet his God, into whose presence be is so soon to be ush ered. - jggyMa. James Barr, son of Hugh Barr, of Philadelphia, who had his leg broken some weeks ago, but who had nearly recovered, was driving a buggy down from the Summit on yes terday, when the tire of the buggy broke and frightened the horse, and Mr. Barr was thrown out and had his leg broken over again. The fractured limb was set by Drs. Jackson and Walters, and the sufferer, who' is at Samuel Dil lon's House, is doing quite well. Proceedings of the Cambria County Temperance Convention.

An army of grasshoppers has made its appea ance on the northern confines of Guatemala and extended into Mexico as far as Oajaca. It is about three leagues long by half a league broad, and travels at the rate of twelve miles a day. It has already traversed 150 leagues of country, moving during the day and remaining quiet at night and during the cloudy days, keeping near the coast, and never beginning its march until 8 or 9 o'clock, when the sun is felt. Its prefer red fool is indigo aud corn, audit has not touch ed the sugar cane. It is described as being from two to two and a half inches long, of a deeperyellow color, and having four small winge of the same color.

At ail events, on the evening of the 22d June, he was quietly smoking in a Greek coffee-house on the wharf, (not a private dwelling of a Sardinian as was at lirst reported,) when a band of ten men came to the spot and arrested him as a Hunga rian, who was in banishment with Kossuth Ct Kutayah, and was permitted to go to Ameri ca, on pledging his word never to return to Tur kish territory. Costa struggled with his assail ants, and knocked one or two of them into the water, and atlength leaped into the stream" and swain towards a bhip. He was soon overtaken dragged into a boat, and taken on board the Austrian brig of war 11 uzzar, where he was heavily ironed. It was observed that six cf his captors remained on board the brig, and the rest returned ashore. The affair would appear to have blown over for that night, but the next morning it was generally talked of, and tke'iPost intense excitement arose. Mr. Brown the U S. Consul, learning that Costa was last from America, waited on the Consul General of Aus tria, saying that he understood thnt n r Hungary, who had become an American citizen, bad been taken by force on board the Austrian Dng ol war, and lie wished to see the inaa and asi lur.i tar pt" The Austrian Consul df led all knowledge of J.L:"?a.Ve' o the ui vfinoria. ui.gMuicuucsMjaiiu lflltlTieir with t. i r.ria- oner, which was refused, 1 meantime the ves-ii sei was preparing to detmrt. t tut ment, the corvette St. Louts.

The mean - est cabin boy in the American service would not be guilty of such cowardice." Demanding then to see the paisoner, Costa was brought on dock in iron's. Capt. Ingraham asked, "Are you an American !" "No, I am a Hungarian." "Have you an American pass port 1" To which (like a blockhead) he replied A'o, am a Hungarian, and will die a Ilun.sari- anV The American could do no more and left the brig. Learning, however, soon after, that Costa had taken the oath of citizenship, and seeing the Austrian brig preparing to depart, Capt. Ingraham sent a message that "as from a foreign independent territory, and who Jsad sworn allegiance to the Government of the Uni ted States, he should feel it his duty to insist upon the brig remaining under his guns until he received instructions from Constantinople, and if any attempt were made to depart he would at once fire into the brig." While this was passing in the Jiarl.or, the ex citement was no less on shore. All the Europe an merchants went in a body to Ali Pacha, the Turkish Governor of the city, and begged him not to suffer this violation of the Ottoman terri tory. The Pacha, in great trepidation, said he cjuld not lidp it, but would wntu to Constanti nople for instructions. The TTiercHiantd tln-n re paired to the Gabino, which is their reading room, ball-room and club, f.nd there passed a resolution to expunge the name of every Aus trian from their rolls. Toward evening, while the city was yet in ferment, three otlicers from the Austrian brig had the imprudence to go on shore and sit suio&ing in a cafe. They were speedily surrounded by an excited crowd of Italians, who began by brandishing their knives, and ended by stabbing one of the officers, Mid shipman the Baron Huckelberg, aged eighteen, and throwing him into the sea. Another of the officers, a Lieutenant, was bad ly beaten and the third, the physician of the brig, being in plain clothes, escaped unhurt. This cowarJly assassination was universally re probated by the respectable inhabitants. On the 25th the funeral of the young man took place, and all the Consulates, with the exception of the English and American, hoisted black flags. The Austrian and Prussian Consuls accompanied the body to the grave, but the other Consulates were not represented. On hearing of the affray, Baron Bruck, the Austrian Plenipotentiary at Constantinople, demanded ample satisfaction from the Porte within twenty-four hours, which the Porte instantly granted by dismissing Ali Pacha, and appointing the Governor of Rhodes in his place. Several of the refugees were also arrested, but the guilty ones were said to have effected their escape. It was even said that the Torte had pledged itself to put it out of the power of the refugees, four hundred In number, to do further mischief. Meantime Mr. Browu addressed a note to Mr. de Bruck, demanding the release of Costa. De Bruck replied, in a warm manner, that he could not take such a claim into consideration for a moment, since Costa was a Hungarian, conse quently an Austrian subject, and that the Em peror of Austria had full power over all his sub jects in the Ottoman territory. Mr. Brown, in return, reiterates his demand, and sends Bruck a copy oi tne oatn swern to oy uosia, in -sew York, promising adherence to the Government of the United States, stating his intention of be coming an American citizen, and discarding all other allegiance whatever, especially that to the Emperor of Austria. A dispatch from Constantinople, July 4, states that Costa bad been provisionally handed over to the keeping of the Austrian Consul at Smyr na. It was stated in Paris that Lord Redcliffe, th6 British Ambassador at Constantinople, had also interposed "in the name of humanity," to have Costa returned to the United States. A dis patch from Turin, 11th, states that the Sardini an Government denies having had anything to do with Costa's arrest"; the Sardinian Consul jn Smyrna had no communlcatian with the Austri an Consul on the subject. Another letter from Vienna states that the particular crime laid to Costa's charge is having assisted to hide the regalia of Hungary. Thero are three American ships (names not stated) at Constantinople. It was reported that the Cumberland had brought a large amount of money to Constantinople. The Austrian ships Artemise aud Castozza hnd been ordered to Smyrna to assist the Hussar brig, if attacked by the corvette St. Louis. It was also said that the St. Louis had received several refugees on board. Accidest.-A dreadful accident occurred on the Camden and Amboy Railrond, Tuesday afternoon, caused by a collision of trains, which resulted in the loss of five lives and the wound ing of a number of passengers.

From Sritish Guiana The Venezuelan Revolution, lc. Boston, August 3. Papers hive be?n receir. ed here from Georgetown, British Guiana, to July 14th. They report that there was consid erable dissatisfaction at the result of the impor tation of Chinese Coolies who were very quar relsome. The bark Appollone, had arrived from Calcutta with 190 Coolies 20 others had died on the passage. 400 more Chinese Coolies had Wen contracted for, and were expeoled. - They were siid to be the off-Bcouring of the Chinese nation. An article in one of the papers declares that if Cuba is allowed to continue to receive slaves, the British West Indies cannot compete with her in the production of sugar, &c. The same papers have details of the Venezue lan revolution, of which the Province of Cuman seems to be the hja l-quartors. They had form ed a provisional government, and had taken measures for a Convention of the disaffected Provinces to form a confederation. General Thaddeo, a rrenerr.l of Monai?os, was marching against them ut the head of 3,000 men.' "The Monagos family had fifnt 7,000 doubloons to Trinidad lor safe keepip. The IVinidaiiin thinks that the Venezuelans are unfit to be free, uud that an American rifle corps had l-.etter take possession of the country ami govern it. Execution of Thomas Connor.
