I understand that you have main and remote database , you have started deleting on the main database and now you have contacts on the remote , but not in the main database , right.
If I am right first let me explain in the act you do not have option to restore the deleted contacts
you have to take backup of the db where you have all contacts are then if it is remote database you have to click on tools sync panel and disable the synchronization then take backup again and move the backup file to the main computer and restore as new database

While the restoration of a backup (of the remote database) and then importing the contacts into the original main database will work, it may be easier to just start over. Imports can take a long time depending on how much data (contacts/notes/histories/activities) there are.
Create a backup of the unaffected remote (File > Backup > Database), restore the backup on the main computer (File > Restore > Database > Restore As) - this will create a new main database which contains all contacts. From the new main database, create a new remote database (Tools > Synchronization Panel) and restore it on the other machine.
You would then have to go through and delete the desired contacts, but that may be a easier/faster alternative.
