To Our Patrons.
This number closes our connection with the
''Mou.ntais Sentinel." 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
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.
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 knife or dagger used by the perpetrator, en
tered the heart of Collins about one inch, after
which he ran some distance and fell before the
window of the Hay street church ; ho lay a few
seconds and rose up again and ran to near the
corner of Hay and Liberty streets, when he fell
again. 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
V-rj!ie streets. A few days previous Collins had in

He leaves a wife, (formerly Miss Lieb) and one

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."

Salt. The Harrisburg Item says that a spe

habitants," and pronounced far superior to any
rock salt he ever examined.
Where this rock is, we know not, being unin
formed, as to its location. Time, however,
which unfoldeth all things, will necessarily de
monstrate that in minerals and hidden wealth
the soil of Cambria cannot be surpassed by any
in the State.

A Lcscs Nature. 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

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. -

Whereas, the friends of Temperance, compo

the day, have heretofore voted for the candi
dates of the-ir respective parties, hoping by peti

such a law, which petitions, to equal extent,
have been treated with marked contempt, and

cause they espouse,
Therefore, be it Resolved, That this Convention

An Army of Grasshoppers.
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. A similar plague took place
in 1771, when they invaded Yucatan and the
coast of Vera Cruz and New Mcxioo in formida

Koosta, or Costa, had been b
Smyrna, although another account says he had
uc-eu eigm. moums concealed in the city. 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

"Your Lieutenant, sir, has lied ? 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
