TUB BEDFORD (iiZETTE. Bftli'ord, .Sum* 'i9, I 5.1.1. t*. W. Bowman, Editor and Proprietor. K7" The annual examination of the classes of the Bedford Academy and Female Seminary will com mence on Thursday morning, June "JB, at 'J o'clock, and continue until Friday evening. The Academic Exhibit ion will take place on the evening ot the 4th of July at 7j o'clock, in the Pres byterian Church. An address will be delivered on Thursday evening the sth of July, at H o'clock, by Rev. Joseph Clark, of Chambersburg. The Principal of the Academy respectfully invites the patrons and friends of the In-litution, and the public generally, to bv present at the closing exerci ses of the Academy. WM. \V. CAMPBELL. beTFOBB RITT if IF CfTTapt. JOHN ALStP tendered his resignation as Captain of this Company on last Thursday, in con -eqtience of his business arrangements being such as to prevent hint from giving the command the neces sary attention. He was a great favorite with the company, and they parted with him with much re luctance. An election was held on the same day to supply the vacancy, which resulted in the choice of Lieut. A. J. SANSOM —a selection well calculated to give strength and efficiency to the corps. Capt. Sansom is young, active, aud energetic, and the re quisites to make a good and popular officer. He gave the command at the last parade with a clear and distinct voice, and in a manner calculated to in.pire confidence and respect. We presume there will be a full turn out on the tth, when they intend to have a public dinner in the woods. We hope they may have a pleasant time. l'Tiey expect to be join ed by a company about to be organized in Cumber land Valley. {£/- Gen. JOHN W. GEARY sold tin* "St. .Nicholas Hotel," in Cumberland, on the loth inst. to M'-ssis. J. T. Edwards and (J. A. C. IE Thruston, for the sum of $! (1,000. This was all he sold of the large amount of proper ty advertised. The General expects to visit the Bedford Springs in a week or two. Font HORSE COACHES. Four-horse Post Coaches commenced running between Bedford and Ilollidaysburg on last Monday. The first return stage brought 1 1- passengers, evidently a good beginning. The line is owned hv Maj.S. DAVIS, ot Bedford, and Col. \VM. K. PIPER, of Ilollidaysburg, gentle men well calculated for the enterprize. A large number of visitors are expected at the springs in the course ola few days, and the indications are. that our place will soon be thronged with strangers. are indebted to Rev. J. T. TOMLIN, Principal of the Cassville Seminary, lor an "Essay on Woman," written by Mr. Tnos. R. VICKKOT, a graduate of this office, and at [ire sent a student in the thriving Institution above named. Satisfied that it will be read with ge neral interest, we will publish it next week. It is well written, and indicates talent of no ordi nary character. THE LIQIOR LAW. No Important law lias ever been passed, since the organization of our Government, that did not find support from the friends of the Ad ministration in power, except the anti-license J EG law passed by the Know Nothing Legisla ture of Pennsylvania last winter—which does not seem to find a single advocate in the Com monwealth ! Even the K. X. IV hig papers are forced to remain silent, so infamous is the mea sure in all its provisions—and yet the Biil is the banlling of a know-nothing Legislature, was voted for bv FR. JORDAN, representing a Dis trict which had given a large majority against a Prohibitory Liquor Law, and was APPROVED and SIGNED by a K. N. Governor, exhibiting a de gree of contempt for public opinion unparallel ed in the history of Legislation. When this measure came before the Senate it met the tie- Terminer! opposition of every DEMOCRAT in that body not tainted with Know Nothing ism, an.! only passed by ONE VOTE—so that Mr. Jor dan, in utter defiance of the expressed will of his constituents, is entitled to the HONOR of car rying the JUG act through the Legislature, by which the tax-payers will be deprived of a re venue of about $200,000 annually, and drunk ards manufactured by wholesale. Under this law a dealer in liquors dare not sell less titan a quart, arid is prohibited from allowing the pur chaser to take a drink in his house or on the premises—so that a man who drinks at all will be compelled , under this dirty act, to buy a large quantity and take it home where he can barn his children how to become rum-suckers! This is Know Nothingism exemplified, and if the Farmers and Tax-payers of the country want more of it, then it is their duty to aid in building up midnight oath-bound Jxxlges to re gulate the business of the Commonwenlth, and with them be the responsibility. \Ye have nut laiied to warn the people of their danger. The Democratic Party is their only refuge. HOPEWELL COAL AM> IRON COMPANY.—This Company has its field of operations in Red ford county, at the proposed termination of the Broad Top Rail Road. The location far iron manu facturing purposes cannot he surpassed. The following gentlemen were recently elected di rectors lor the present year;—Henrv K. Strong, Andrew J. Jones, John M'Canles, Satnuei J. Christian, R. R. Coggshali, A. S. Gilhlt, Ste phen Miller, David J. linger, and Andrew Mehaffy. Xr* The people of Boston seem to have a proper appreciation of the late K. .V Legislature of Mass. At a meeting held in Faneuii Hall last week, the subjoined resolution was adopt ed: "Resolved, That the Legislature of 1555 stands without a parallel in its shame. Its in consistencies are glaring, its hypocrisy mani fest, Us immoralities gross, while foiiy and stupidity seemed t' lie the presiding genius of many ol its acts and enactments, so that, while the intention is manifest, there is no moral power in their laws to injure the character ol those at whom the blow is aimed." THE DEBOCR&TIC CBEED. Tbe Clevlanti Plaindealor .ays : Ihe Cardinal piineiples of the Dernocratic party arid its distinctive characteristics, are well set forth HI the following "confession of faith." They contrast proudly with the narow, illiberal, bigoted tenets ot our political opjxwients. Header, peruse them, and see if there i anything from which yon dissent. They were the doctrines of our Revolutionary fathers, and are gen era!! v incorporated into our Federal Constitution. 1.

As was anticipated, the Know-Nothing Conven tion, now assembled in our city, is convulsed to its centre with the slavery question. The North, led by Senator Wil-on and Governor Gardner, ot Massachu setts, is determined to have an ultra Anti-Slavery platlorin. To this the South will not agree, and hence the feud. <>ti the 11th ui-t. the Committee on Resolutions reported the following on the question of domestic servitude, which have -inee been discus.ed with tierce and bitter vindictiveness: AV.--...W, That the American Party having arisen npjn the ruins, and in spite of the opposition of the Whig ami Democratic parties, cannot he held in any manner responsible tor the obnoxious acts or violated pledges of either; that the systematic agitation of the S'averv question of those parties has elevated sectional hostility into a positive element of political power, and brought our institutions into peril. It Pas therefore, become the imjierative duty of the American party to inter[>se, for the purpose of giv ing peace to the country and perpetuity tothe Union. That as experience has shown it is impossible to re concile opinions so extreme as t;;0-e which seperate the disputants, anil as theiecan be no dishonor in sub mitting To the laws, the National Council lias deem ed it the best guarantee ol common justice and of fu ture peace to abide bv and maintain the existing taws upon the subject of Slavery, a* a finai and conclu sive settlement oi that subject in spirit and in sub stance. Rtso'ri'/, That regarding it the highest duty to avow these opinions upon a subject so important. in distinct and unequivocal terms, it is hereby declared as the sense of fins National Council, that Congress p ()> ,Hs?es no power under the Constitution to Legis late upon the subject of slavery in the State-, or to exclude any state from admission into the Union, be came ber Constitution does or.does not recognize the institution of slavery as a part of her social system ; and expre-slv pretermitting any expressions ol opin ion upon the power of Congress to establish or pro hibit slavery in any territory. It is the sen-e of the National Council That Congress ought not to legi-late upon the subject ol slavery within the territories ol the United States, and that any interference of Con gress with slavery as it exists in the District ol ( o iurnbia, would be a violation of the spirit and inten tion of the compact by which the State of Maryland ceded the District to the United States, and a breach of the national faith. The vote on the adoption of these resolutions in committee stood seventeen for them to fourteen against. New York and Massachusetts were the free States which voted for the majority resolutions, and these, with the Pi-tuct of Columbia, cnabl—l the South to report the resolutions as they are. The minority also submitted a resolution, embodying their ideas of the kind of a platform on which they are willing to meet their brethren from all sections of the Union. It is as follows : Kcso/vrrl, That the repeal of the Missouri Compro mise was an infraction of the phchted faith of the Nation,jand that it should be restored, ami if efforts to that end shall fail. Congress should refuse to admit any State tolerating Slavery which shall be formed out of any poition which was excluded by that Com promise. The minority resolution was signed by the repre sentatives of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, Rhode I-land, Vermont, Indi ana, Wisconsin, Michigan, Illinois—l 2in all. Dele ware and New Jersey, all endorsed the lir-t clau-e.— In discussing the resolutions. Gov. Gardner declared that neither he nor his State, nor a majority of the Free States would abide by the Resolutions first re ported. The party could not carry a village in Mas sachusetts upon them. He charged the New- Fork Delegation with deserting the North, and denounced the w hole affair us a mere echo of the pro-slavery party of the country. The Southern Delegation were equal ly vehement in their denunciations of the acts and motives of the men w ho would attempt to force upon the party a platform which would never cross the Po tomac. The experiment had been tried in Virginia, hacked by the recent action of the Massachusetts Legislature, and the result was before the country. It was a miserable- failure, and so would be every ef fort to place Abolitionism and Know Nothingism on the same basis. These were the positions taken by the two factions which compose this motley group. The North is in earnest. Its delegates are willing to show their hands, stained as they are with treason to the fingers' ends. The Southern delegates, wiih those of New York, are for attempting to cozen and cajole the country with a so-called Constitutional platform. This is the game to he played. But it will not succeed either with the North or South.— Senator Wilson and Governor Gardner with their Abolition friends will pour hot shot into it at the North, while the Constitutional men of the South are not to he duped by such a flimsy veil as that which is attempted to be cast over this party of civil arid religious bigotry and proscription. The turning point of this tide of f'analicisiii and illiberality has come. The convocation of traitors has written its own doom, and henceforth it will be a mere localism, used by a few small politicians to earn a scanty liv ing from. — Philadelphia Argux. FOURTH DEGREE.—The Boston Atlas, sug gests _that the know-nothing party needs a fourth degree to render it perfect, under which members shall obligate themselves not to seek office. There would'nt be much knocking at that door. It is believed that all the disappoint ed and broken down office-seekers of the two old parties have already joined the Councils and they would'nt feel disposed to take more than the third tlejrce, which requires members to vote lor brothers of that degree in preference to all others. We the undersigned, Merchants of the bo ougb of Bedford, do agree to close our respec tive houses of business on the lburth of July next. , Kelly and Dougdaie, Robert Fyan, Rupp 5c C>ter, S.

W'e sometimes tiiid men most strenuously claiming that to which thev have the feast right, hoping, by the strength of their demand, to make up for their weakness of title. Upon this principle the know-nothings have arrogated to themselves the name of the "American party lor never before has there existed in this Coun try a party so thoroughly anti-republican and anti-American, and it is no more entitled to the name of "American" than the devil is to the title of saint, merely because he sometimes assume tlie garb of "an angel of light." The American character is bold and open. — The know-nothing character skulks iu secret. Americanism seeks fhe light, and courts inves tigation. Know-nothingism seeks darkness, and shuns investigation. Americanism opens its arms to the oppressed of all nations, and says : "Come to this refuge and enjoy civil and re ligious liberty, worship Cod as your conscience dictates, and your religious belief shall not be a test of your fitness or unfitness for the rigfits and privileges of citizenship." Know-nolhing ism assumes a threatening attitude, and says to the down-trodden of other lands : "Stay where you are; fester and rot in the chains that ty lauts have thrown around you: we have liberty here, but you shall not share it with us." To both foreigners and natives it says: "Worship Cod in a particular av, whether your con science approves it or not, or you are unfit lor all fhe pi ivileges of citizenship. Vour religious opinions shall be the lest of vour fitness fur of fice." The American character emblazons its prin ciples and unfurls its flag to the world. The know-nothing character hides its principles in a dark lantern under a culvert. Americanism sels its light upon a hill and glories in its re splendent beams. Know-nothingisin puts its darkness under a bushel, and trembles and flees at the approach of light. Americanism is day ; know-nothingism i< night. Americanism speaks with a voice that is heard to the remotest parts of the earth, and at the sound of which tyrants quake and the oppressed look up and feel a thrill of joy. Know-nothingism whispers in low and tremulous tones—such tones as despots love to hear, and at which the heart panting for liberty sinks. The light of Americanism illumines the world, Daring in everv ray a hope and a con solation to struggling freedom. The darkness of know-nothingism broods with baleftil wing over tlie aspirations of liberty, ominous of evil to the cause of man. Americanism is progres sive : know-nothingism would wheel back the march of intellect and plunge (he world into the persecutions of the dark ages. The ''American party," indeed! They have not on.- feature in their whole creed in unison with the American character. They ace "spu rious"—they are "bogus" coin. The democrat ic. party is the true American party, and the only one: ami he that swaps it for know-noth ingmrii swaps the genuine for the counterfeit, and is miserably cheated.— Raleigh (. V. C.J Standard. Remarks of Mr. English at the Tammany Jubilee. At the late enthusiastic jubilee at Tammany Ilall, in New York, to exchange congratulations over the great Virginia triumph, the Hon. W. H. English, of Indiana, made the following pa triotic and eloquent remarks : '■GENTLEMEN : I am a stranger in your city; and although I have been a democrat from my earliest boyhood, as my father was before me, tliis is the first time my feet ever rested on the inside of tfie world-renowned Tammany Hall. [Cries of'you are welcome.'] I came, here to night rather to listen than to speak, and af this late hour shall attempt no more than to mingle my humble voice with yours in-cuiigratuialmg the noble democracy of Virginia on their late magnificent victory. [Loud applause.] That victory, gentlemen, has sent a thiiil ol joy to the heart ol the democracy of file whole L'uioii. (Applause.] It has sounded the death-knell of the party ol" proscription and religious intoler ance. The gallant Wise, ol Accomac, recentFv said that the rock of defence against kuow-noth ingism was the indomitable democracy. "He might have gone further, arid said that, at all times, and under all circumstances, when the vital principles of this government have been assailed, or the country been in danger, the rock ol defence has been this same indomi table democracy. [Loud cheering.] When the odious alien and sedition laws were fastened upon the people—measures no more repugnant to the genius <>f our institutions than the doc trines of the know-nothings—the rock of defence was the Ji-ffersonian democracy. In the second war ot independence, who was it burned blue lights and refused to vote supplies, though the em-mies of the country were battering down tin gates of the Capitol? Who were the rn<ii to proclaim moral treason in the Hartford Conven tion? I'hey were, thank Heaven! not the de mocracy. Democracy was again the rock ol defence. [Cheers.] "So, too, in the Mexican war that same rock stood (inn, and it was left to men of another faith to sympathize with the enemy, and wish that our brave soldiers might be welcomed to Mexico with bloody hands and hospitable graves. What party stood forth as the rock of defence in that scarcely less momentous contest between Jackson and the monster United States Bank' The indomitable democracy. And when the whig party had given to the country,*-heir meth od ol paying honest debts by a bankWtpt law, it was the democratic parly that came to (he ies cue. \\ ho has extended the boundaries of the republic ? Who resisted religious and sectional fanaticism ? Always the indomitable democra cy, and so it is now, ami will be to the end. [Applause.] "Gentlemen, you have nothing to fear. The result in Virginia has demonstrated that the know-nothing organization cannot exist as a national party. It must inevitably dwindle to a mere pililul sectional abolition concern.— [Cheers.] It can never raise its head bibber than that. Ur have but to stand firm bv our principles—by the constitution and the Union —discarding all sectional prejudice and all bick ering amongst ourselves—and victory is certain to perch iijon our standard. [Applause, during which Mr. English resumed his seat.] "The chairman said (hat the hour had now arrived when the grave-yards vawn and know nothing councils meet, and with three cheers for the democracy of Virginia and Henry A. Wise, lie adjourned the meeting." Rich Judicial Case in Dayton, Ohio— IV/ii-T Parly not yet Dead. A man hy the name of Gillis, as we learn from the Davton Empire, lately brought suit against some gen tlemen in that city for buggv hire.—The defen dant? were the Whig Central Committee in

Montgomery county, in 1853 and 185+, and the conveyances wen tor the use of that party. AH of the defendants made default one (Mr. Smith Davidson) who appeared and tiled a imilipn to dismiss the sod on the ground that the Whig puriy was the proper defendant—• that the said party was dead and no administra tor had been appointed. But we will give the principal reasons adduced by the defendant, us set forth in his written motion : "And said defendant further says that the dale Whig Central Committee,' mentioned in said petition, was appointed by the lute Whig party to represent its interests while said party was alive and recognized as a living organiza tion, having u habitation and a name, and that said committee is not the administrator, or rep resentative of said Whig party, defunct ; that the said Whig parly w as, and had become pre vious to the tiling of said petition, to all intents and purposes, deceased and entirely defunct : that a short time previous to tie* tall election in the year of our Dud eighteen hundred and lift v tour it went under, and since then has had no tangible existence; that there had been no ad ministrator appointed to settle the affairs of said deceased party, but in the event of the appoint ment of such administrator, the defendant will fee! it his duty to advise the payment of such hill if duly presented, provided, always, that the property and effects of said deceased party (consisting chiefly of old lumber used in build ing platforms).can be disposed of at a fair price. The defendant further states that fie is informed on reliable authority 1 hat the said party died in solvent," iVc. The case was argued at length by T. H. Til ton, Esq., for the plaintiff, and by Mr. Davison ill his own behalf. Both gentlemen, we are in formed. acquitted themselves handsoni'dy, and afforded great amusements to the audience in attendance. The Court held thai the "Whig party'" was not dead, or, at feast, that the evi dence offered was insufficient to show the fact. Motion overruled. Judgment for plaintiff for 50 and costs.— From the.

That the people rnav know u ho "Sam's" friends were in Cleveland, on what principles he was successful, and by whom elected, we copy the following statement from the Cleveland Express, the Know-Nothing organ in that city. Speak ing of the election, it says: "The colored population generally voted fir the American Ticket day before yesterday. In this th'-v showed goad judgment, and they will have no occasion to regret their action. They njoice with us in SAM'S triumph OVER a W ak, corrupt Nebraska Administration.

The District Committee of the Democratic j party invited the Hun. S. A. Douglas to be j present at the celebration of the victory of the Old Dominion. His replv is too good to remain . unpublished : | GENTLEMEN : I deeply regret that it will be impossible for me to be present and parte ipate j with von in celebrating tin glorious victory, re ; cent I v achieved by the Dem ocracv of Virginia over the most intolerant, proscriptive, insidious, and dangerous political organization ever form ed against the constitution and liberties of a ! free country. In all the elections which have ; taken place in the .Northern States during the last twelvemonths, Iviiow-Nothiiigisin has not only been the firm alls' of Abolitionism, higher lawism, and mob-lawism, and all other baneful j isms of the day, but has been the controling ! power which combined, directed, and led all | these allied factions in their savage and brutal ; warfare against the Detnocialic party, its prin ciples and organization. Let us not be deceived by their repeated changes of name. It matters not whether they call themselves "Know-Nothings," or "Know | Somethings," or the "sons of the sires of i f>r the "order of Star Spangled Banner," or the j "children of Sum," or the "sons ol Jotuilhan," j or by any other name they may assume when ; they have disgraced the previous one: their se lf, ret organization and clandestine proceedings, their intolerant and proscriptive spirit, their un lawful and horrid oaths, their unconstitutional and unholy purposes, remain unchanged. It is the duty, and 1 firmly believe, the destine, ot the Democratic party, under the guidance of Divine Providence, to confound, overwhelm, and utterly annihilate this secrect, insidious, and dangerous organization, j To at com; li.-h this great woik, ii is only ne cessary that w- should be true to ourselves, to : our principles and our party, whose triumphs have ever been identified with the interests, ho ; nor, ami glory of the republic. Let there be no , concessions to tlie enemy—none to faction— ; none to t be allied fanatical isms of the day, mi— j der whatever name or form they may appear. The Old Dominion lia- shown herself true to her principles, her history, and her renown.— Her democracy have fought the battle faithfully, gallantly, gloriously. With vnu I rejoice in her triumph. May Kentucky imitate the ex ample and rival tin* achievements of her illus trious mother! All eyes are now fixed upon your noble Stale. A similar victory in old i Kentucky would overwhelm the enemy with dismay and despair, while it would carry joy, hope, and confidence to the heart of every j friend of religious freedom and constitutional right throughout the length and breadth of the iand. Pardon the length of this letter, ami accept for i yourselves and those you represent my grateful j acknowledgements tin your kind invitation. I have the honor to he, very truly, your ! friend and obedient servant, S. A. DOi;LAS. .Messrs. F. S. J. Ronald, W. Tompkins, and others, Committee. Sale of the Main Line. We learn from the Huntingdon! Journal that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company has ; purchased the stock of the Forwarding Compa- Jnieson the Main Line of our Slate Improve ments, and we infer this statement to he well , founded, from the fact that a notice has been published by Messrs. Lewis & Butler, of Pitts burg, one of these Forwarding Companies, that they will cease to forward freight on the lfith instant. The Hollidaysburg Register, in no ticing this matter, says : We have contradictory reports in regard to the sale of the stock of the Forwarding Com panies on the Main Line of our State Improve ments, and are not able to say whether the ; sale has been consummated or not. We incline to the opinion, however, that a sale has been rfr.Tle.l, but (hat it is to h** smoth*r*l up for a time, in order to gain some other advantage to the greedy Corporation that has purchased. Certain it is that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company, has proposed to hoy out these lines —and when-fore f Has their road not the ca pacity to do all the business that its managers can secure for it ? Have they not already stock*enough to carry every pound of freight they can obtain for tlansjiortalion ujtoii it? What run tliey e want but to break down business on the State works, render them apparently valueless, buy them at a song, and thereby secure a monopoly of the transporting business between Philadelphia and Pittsburg, and then charge extortionate prices, if they ph-ase ? What, we ask, can he the object of this grasping, soulless, overshadowing Corporation, in buying, or s-ekiug to buy out the Forwar ding Lines which now are a wholesome rival to it ? Will not the people and tlie press, consider i this matter? It is ol vast moment—of general i concern. • The Ve\l Legislature. We are glad to perceive that our Democratic : friends in the interior appreciate the im|x>rtance ui making gw/d selections for the Legislature. It is, indeed, a matter ol the tirst moment. In attention to it has heretofore tended invariably to disgrace. What the people demand is a de cided change in the characters ol the men sent to Harrisburg : and they will have it. West moreland lias done well in nominating such a I man as Hon. 11. D. Foster, and other counties ' are emulating her example hv selecting men ol high character and unquestioned integrity. Our 1 city, too, will do her whole duty in this re- I gard, and the shameless traders, whose purpose was to make money, will, if Inard of at all about the capitol, at least not occupy positions i as members, but be looked upon as creeping j things about tin* Hall, whose very presence j speaks ol fraud an.l conspiracies to profit hv \ 10- ! lating the* wishes ol the people. Tln-v have ! had their ciav. The people know them, and j will not again their, or other hands like theirs, the high and responsible duties of legislators. Philadelphia . Irgus. The Virginia Election. I The Richmond Enquirer, in commenting on ; the fact that some ot the Know-.Nothing papers attribute th** election of Wise to the "lor. tgtl" vole although tliey are not ignorant of the rir j cumstance that his majority largely exceeds the entire foreign vote ot the State says:—"it is known that a considerable proportion ot the "foreign" vote.was cast against the Democratic candidates. A correspondent of the Baltimore Sun savs an examination ot the jxdls in Alexan dria has developed the surprising fart that a large number ot foreign horn citizens supported the Know-Nothing ticket. There is another fact which settles this dispute beyond coiitro i versy. J:i the cities, and iti the counties through which works of internal improvement are progressing—ln Richmond, in Petersburg, j in Norfolk, in Alexandria, in Wheeling, in Fredericksburg, 111 Augusta, and in Loudon in short, just where the "foreign" vote is the strongest, just there did the democracy sustain • the greatest loss. (Jii the other hand, in the : remote Southwest anil on the South side, where I nobody ever sees a Catholic or a foreigner, the : Democracy made the largest gains. These are tacts which the Know-Nothing papers can no more dispute, than they can make them con form to their fantastic theory, that the election of IV ie was the work of Catholics and foreign ers. INDIA\ TllOi DLLS 0\ THE ARKANSAS FROSTIER. The Van Bur en Intelligencer of the 2f)th nit. j has an article on the subject of Irulian troubles 'on the frontier. Alter referring to the antici pated conflict vvith the Indian tribes on the Plains further north, and to the fact that (Gov ernment is organizing large bodies of troops to i chastise the Indians, who have committed de predations there, the Intelligencer asseits that (■overiiriieiit has entirelv overlooked the Arkan- sis frontier, where numerous warlike l ands are now threatening hostilities which will great I v endanger the peace and safety of the frontier settlements. The Intelligencer then proceeds as follows : The Indians near us are hrave and warlike tribes, andean easilv form combinations whicii, if not early prevented, would cause much bloodshed and trouble to our border settle ments. The roving hands of Keehies, Camanches, Osages and others, ai e now at war, or are pre paring for hostilities with each other, which bids fair to bring into file conflict the large and numerous warlike bands upon our immediate border. The Creeks, Camanches and paits of the Shawnee and Kickapoo tribes have lately made demonstrations of hostilities against other tribes, which if not soon quenched may cause a general war among the the different tribes.— These tribes having lately been molested ami robbed by the Kechise, Osages, and others, have held councils and were on the eve of giving them battle, when they were arrested by the counsels of the more prudent, those who have confidence in the professions of our Govern ment which lias promised them protection from such incursions. About three weeks since a large council was held in the Creek nation, to send out warriors from the tribes to punish tfie Keehies, who commenced depredations uprin their frontier, at which there were piesrnt Creeks, Seminoles, Shawnees, Delawares, Camanches, and other tribes, who actually oiganized their forces and were fitting them out with amuniliou to punish the offenders, w hen they were deterred by the counsels of the more prudent, who advised them to make known the cause of the disturbance to tlie Government before taking steps that would involve the whole frontier in a war with the various tribes. They have agreed fo wait, and will in a few days hold another council and make known their grievances to the Government. Prompt and decisive steps should at once be taken in the matter, for if I hey once commence hostili ties the peace of this frontier would he greatly endangered, for the well known bravery of all the tribes who form a coalition justifies the im pression that the war would extend to all the roving hands. Although Congress is not in session, we hope that our Congressional delegation will remon strate against the contemplated removal of Ihe troops from this frontier at this critical junc ture.
