V V-X' V- - " C7"AN ELOQUENT ADDRFSS.—The address j delivered by Rev. Mr. CI.AKK, of Chamhershurg, on last Thursday evening, in the Presbyterian Church, was an intellectual treat of no ordinary character ter. We wish it had been hear.l hy all our citizens. i His brief F.ulogy upon Rev. JOHN WESLEY was |xW- j erful, eloquent, and to the point. Many a man j would "write a book" and rot say as much. EXAMINATION. Wf Our citizens had an opportunity recently of witnessing an examination of the Scholars under the ■ charge of Mr. WM. W. CA MP BELL, Principal of the Bedford Male and Female Seminary, and we hut give expression to the opinion of at! present, when we says that it was such as to reflect the highest honor upon the institution. Mr. C. is certainly master of his profess son. and is competent to impart a- good an education as can bo obtained in any oilier Academy j ii> the Common wealth. We hope to -ee his school liberally patronized at the opening o! the next ses- i -ion. Ir is worthy the encouragement of all our ci-! ti/.eus, who should feel a deep personal interest in its welfare. tlii of July, 1555. C'T'This glorious day was celebrated with rr> usual spirit in Beltord.-At an early hour our citizciss were aroused from their slmrsber-' by the ringing of bells, the firing of guns, and tl-e Se-t martial music to be found HI the State, and the citizensot the surrounding neighborhood visited our town in large numbers.— At 10 o'clock tin: vtilitary made their appearance iq>- rn our streets, looking as mat and clean as a dollar in-t from the mint. The lice consisted of the Bed ford Hides, Capt. SANSO.M —II.e Cumberland Valley Blues, ('apt. Miv—and tin- Bedford Caaets, (.'apt.-; DKI sKUHooK. The "Bedford Fire Company" joined the military, under the direction of Mr. GEO. D. SHI ex, and made a fine abearance. After performing a variety of evolutions, the sol diers and citizens marched Jo Deiibatigh's beAntifiil glove, near town, where a splendid dinner had been prepared by Mr. VALENTINE STEI KMAN of the "Globe I Hotel." Previous fo partaking of the dinner, however, at: Oration was delivered by (■". LI. SCAN.., F.-q., which, : for beauty of style and eloquence of thought, was quite equal to any address we have ever heard upon a similar oeca-ion. His views wore expansive, liber al, and patriotic in an eminent degree, ami the ease a. I elegance with which they were delivered attrac ted general admiration and applause. He had but few notes, and seldom referred to them. Mr. S. is, we have no doubt, destined Zo become eminent in his profession and highly usefn! to hi- native State as a member of the great Democratic Party. He would •idorn any station. Attire close of Mr. Spang's Address, Fr. Jordan, F.sq. addressed the "Fire Company" in an appropri ate manner. The entertainments of the Day were concluded by an -"Exibition" on the par! of the young gentlemen connected with the Bedford Academy, which termi nated in a manner highly creditable to Themselves and the Institution of which they are p.rpils. The Hoiiidaysburg Brass Band discoursed sweet music an the occasion. PKKSEXTATION OF A FLAG. L 7* The Ladies of Bedford presented the "Cadets" with a handsome Flag on the morning of the -lib ..f July, having selected Mr. ROCKET W. FY.-.S, Jr. as liieir Orator on the occasion—and it atlurd- us plea sure to say, that he fulfilled the trust in a manner That seemed to take every body by surprize, this be ing ins first effort at public speaking- His speech was truly eloquent and appropriate, and via- greatly admired hy all who heard it. As it was delivered i:i the Hall of the Court-House, (owing to the inch-men evofthe weather in the laoruiug,j but few heard r except The military: and, to gratify those who were not present, we will publish his reioaik- in the next Gazette, Mr. F. having furnished us with a copy.— He is certainly a young gentleman of line mind. \CT" Ma j ■ Samuel 11.

"~~*The Pennsylvania State Council of Know-Noth- } ings met in Reading on the 4th in-t., and repudiated ■the platform of the K. N. National Council which recently assembled in Philadelphia. A portion ol ! the Delegates seceded, however, and organized a State Council on the platfnrmathus repudiated bv the majority —so that the K. N's have now five National i and two State platforms! No other political party ever exhibited so little harmony and unity of senti ment. The Bedford Lodges have put their veto upon the action of the State Council, and it now remains to to he seen which will yield i\af:ir;tl Know Aolliiii^. BTT"The Chamhershurg Whig, in speaking of the Know-Nothing Delegate Convention recently held in Bedford, say-"These Bedford Delegates were j doubtless know-nothing- of the Natural sort, or they ; could not publicly have displayed their ignorance of the proceedings ofjhe Philadelphia Convention."— The TFAur further says it would "like to see such men as Senator Jordan stand on the Bedford Know- j A Nothing Platform."

M'CM:EE, of the Chambersbnrg Whig, has as many political -ins to answer lor, perhaps, a any other Inderal Journal ill the State—but hi- manly and straight-forward opposition to the dan gerous principles of know-noth ingism has blotted out a mountain of his pa-t offences, and given him a strong hold upon HIP confidence of the people. The Colonel, however, wants the nerve to go a little fur ther. Gov.

This is not fair, and exhibits a . partiality hy no means commendable. We do not wonder that the gallant Colonel was "hmftily sirL | nml at the fearful i orpor'anre accorded to foreitnt #//- flarnrr*," after the bold attempt made by himself and his party Iriern!- every where to appropriate to then - | selves the entire mass (Whigs ami Democrats) com posing the '' rirh Irish brogue and sweet llmuan nr. | cat'' in the last Presidential campaign. Such a : failure would naturally sicken any body ! The following article is bold, patriotic,and sensible, and will he read with general intere.-t ; TOO LATE LEARNING. Our friends of the Washington Commonwealth are ju-t now learning what we learned mouths ago— namely that a sworn arid secret political organiza tion is susceptible of the gios-e.-t ahuse. ami can scarcely escape being perverted to the service of de signing and dangerous men. Nor is our cofewpnra ry alone in feeling the scourge of such a despoti-m. We have felt it and only averted its more deadly blows try g-appling with it in its own threshhohl: and many of our Whig brethren of the press, who had aided to warn; it into life, atrd who thought u prompted by prejudices or imaginary wrongs m our early and decided hostility to it. are now threatened with the same dangers ami are cnn.pelled in self-de fence to follow our footsteps. The Commonwealth will now agree with us that had it realized at an ear lier day the dark treason li.-.iT rankles in the circle where it expected friendship, its task of ■ell-preser i vat ion would have been much more easily and more sncre.-sfolly performed. Our coteiaporarv need not warn u-"to beware'*— to be prepared lor charges of "bribery" and to be i accused of seeking to betray th" Whigs info the hands of the Democracy. We have no such fears— : The tim | t)l - s.rrh apprehensions is pa-t.

It still exi-ts—-Mil has a formidable array of nominal '■ members in this cnunfy, lint it can only nw he po - tent by inaugurating merit in men and measures and j reaching the popular heart hy seeking the public ; good. It i- no longer the firmly knit and ponder ! ons crushing power it once was. |r now but a loose | p aggregation of men as all other parties, and blind sub mission To the edicts of ? he council is among the " j things that have been. True, it is not declared an open organization in this county, for the Very go"! j reason that there are ambitious leaders whose only hope of using the order to promote their own selfish ends, depends upon secret councils and oath-bound ; i j submission ; but the great mass of the party is to all .• intents and purposes open and free, for in defiance of • the demagogues who would enforce discipline or im- j ' pose disgrace, they will act a- they please—talk as j ! they please—and ro'r as they please. They are sick- j I eried with dictation an i flummery, and the oath is j robbed of its moral lorce by its prostitution to so tin -3 j worthy a purpose. If trie Commonwealth has differ ent surroundings—if men still bow because oath , bound and proscribe because bidden so to do—it has ' ; a re-ponsihle task to perform, and it must conquer the ' - ; despotism that besets it or fall beneath its remorseless . | stroke.

The "Covenanters" Butier i county, Pa., are denounced and uprai'led on account of their religion. The Seeeders have a share of their i i persecution. The Rev.

Quite a number of candidates were presented, but the most prominent before the Convention were Hon. Arnold Plumer of \ eiiango, and William S. Campbell, Esq. of Alleghe ny county.

That the Democratic party needs not, on old and settled issues, to declare its principles in detail.

full ol promise to the Democratic party. Few -mi liar a-.-eroblages have been marked with the same order, dignity and good feeling, and few have pre sented in so striking a manner a leading desire lo ' merge all personal animosity in a union of effort for the welfare of the whole paity. Such a state of har mony was what might have been naturally expected from the history of political movements during the past year. The Democracy learned, at a bitter loos to themselves and to the be.-t interests of the State, j the folly of 10-iug sight for a moment of the paramount value of the principles which we maintain—of per mitting ourselves to suppose for a moment that they do not need the constant vigilance of every patriot, j and of allowing personal considerations and indrvidti- j al claims to obtain an undue influence in the selec tion of candidates tor office. The late '.invention; exhibited in this respect a most gratifying spectarle. It seemed as if every member had come to the place, of meeting, not with the .-ingle purpose of carrying the nomination of his favorite candidate, hut with ! an honest and sincere desire to pur-lie that course • which was be-t calculated to promote a union of sen timent, and ensure the cordial co-operation of Demo- : crats everywhere throughout the Stale. It is true there were a number ol rival candidates lor Canal Commissioner, but they were not arrayed against each other in the bitterness of personal hostility.— ! They were all men well know n throughout the State and with any one of the nnmberfora M .uidard-beat er against the distracted arid cotifu-ed ranks of the op position, we might probably have attained an ea-y victory. Those among them with whom vve have the pleasure ola personal acquaintance, were all strong practical thinkers, who have the necessary knowledge ot public affairs and iletaife of bu-uies- to ; in-ure their competency while their honesty has nev er been questioned. But, without any disposition to underrate the mer its of other.-, we may say that the choice of the Con vention seem- to be preeminently the mail lor the occa-ion. lie is a safe and prudent practical man, who has managed Ins own finance- and those of the State, while under hi- control, with equal care, vig ilance and success. He is a consistent member ola church ; and yet free from every taint of bigotry or intolerance, lie is a man of rigidly tempeiate hab its, and yet not one who would catch eageily at eve ry chimerical scheme for legi-luting mankind into morality. It was but lately that we had an op|x>itu luty of hearing him, in a mo-t enthusiastic democrat ic meeting, express in vigorousand appropriate terms his earnest hostility to The doctrines ol the proscrip tive organization, which he characterized m no un appropriate terms as the wooden-nutmeg party, and denouncing its corrupting and immoral tendencies.— Besides this, Mr. i'liuner belongs to that class of de mocrats who, in all the fluctuations of party ques tion-, have maintained a uniform consistent course. He lias nevei been anything else than a thorough rad ical He ha- been a rep,entative Con gress, Marshal of the We.-tern District of Pennsylva nia, under President Polk, and State Treasurer; and yet no man can he less entitled to the name of an office-seeker. Often when his friends have urged linn to become a candidate for more important sta tions, he has declined the proth red boon. His nom ination at the pre-ent time lias not been sought by hurt. He has made no bargains, promises o efforts toohtam it. But he is willing to assume the respon sibilities into which an aimo-t certain election will introduce him. and bring the lorce of In- judgment again into puldic service.

THE KNOW-NOTHING ATTEMPT TO EX CLUDE CATHOLICS FROM PARTICI PATING IN A FOURTH OF JULV CE LEBRATION IN CINCINNATI.

Tlip know-nothings have ac-j cused the Catholics of a want of American feeling, although ('barbs Carroll, the last sur viving signer of the Declaration ot Indepen- j fiance, belonged to that sect ; and now they ; : refuse to allow them to come into a public F iirtb-of-Jidv demonstration. A meaner and j more contemptible spirit was never exhibited, i Americans want every one to rejoice on the Fourth of July, without distinction ot race or religious creed.
