THE BEDFORD (MZETTE. Uctlioni, Ais". S, 1533. G. W. Bowman, Editor and Proprietor. RON. JANES < A WHEEL. Postmaster General Campbell was on a visit to Philadelphia last week, and received a cor dial and enthusiastic welcome. On Friday he rode down to the Navy Yard, where he was re ceived with a salute of seventeen guns, as a mark oY respect for the high official position he holds in the Government. The Judge arrived at the Bedford Springs on last Tuesday even ing, much to the gratification ol his numerous Irtends. A more honest, efficient, and courte ous officer never held position at \V ashington. His management of the intricate and complicat ed affairs of the Post Office Department will favorably compare with that of any other man ever appointed to the responsible trust. In fact it is generally conceded that he has been the most laborious officer ever placed at the head of that Department. Amidst all his duties, howe ver, he never fails lo treat those who call upon him with the greatest respect ami attention, a trait to be found in the character of the fewest number of our public men. THE ANTI-LICENSE LiOOtB LAW As passed by a K. A". Legisl.ntHre And aprroved S>y GOV. POL!,Of ft! Immediately after the pa-sage of the anti-License JPG Law, we published in the Gazette both the Bill and the VOTE by which it was passed—and, as the tmrc-ts close at hand for the measure to go into oper ation, we have deemed it proper to re-publish the Re cord in order that the people may be enabled to pas llport its provisions, tinderstanduigly, at the approach ing election. It will be seen that the Bill passed the Senate by only ME vote, FR. JORDAN, I.sq. ol Bedford, voting for it, notwithstanding the people of the District he professed to represent, decided a gainsl ANY Piohibitory Law by a majority oi near ly two thousand votes'.! It he had voted against the Dill, as he had bent instructed to do, it could not have passed, and the people would have been spared the humiliation of beholding an act of Assembly in the Old Keystone State which is a silly and contemptible mass of confused ideas, meaning anything and noth ing. ju-t as vou please. The Record shows that Mr. Jordan lipid the power of its passage through the Sen ate in his own hands, and, without venturing to ut ter n woul in exposition of its gross deformity, he quietly treated with contempt the instruction* of his constituents, and took upon himself the authority to rerr,,e their judgment, deliberately expressed at the Polls—an outrage upon papular sentiment such as the Press is Seldom called upon to record.—Now, if any thing could he meaner than the Jug Law itself, it is the conduct of this "honorable" Senator in trying to attach the odium of the measure to every other than the propei source! The people of this District and of the Slate having decided against a Prohibitory, liquor Law, the Legislature had no right to entertain the question in any other way than to submit it a gain to a popular vote. None but fanatics of the worst class will dare to enact laws which the people have rejected in a legal form. Now turn to the other side of the record, and you have the ear thai approval of Gov. "POLLOCK, to this Bill of Abominations, lie barLibe power, under the Constitution, with a single da„h of the pe:r._to have rendered void this extraordinary enactment of an ig noraut and corrupt Legislature, but be, too, tiam pled beneath his feet the voice of the people without even giving them a word of explanation ! Hence the proof is clear, beyond successful contradiction, tiiat a Know Nothing House —a Know Nothing beuate — and a know Nothing Governor—were the sole in struments in passing a jaw, which, in effect, is de signed to curtail the revenue of the State about two hundred tbou-and dollars aunuallt —i eimer almost valueless all llotel and Tavern property—and in crease drunkenness to an extent heretofore unknown ill this commonwealth. It has been lett for Kuov\ Nothiugism to treat the people as though they were slaves; and if they are still willing to bow their necks to receive the yoke, we have qt,hing to say. We ask them, however, to preserve the Pill and the vote, and keep them conspicuously before the voters, who are competent to be Their own judges. fty"We take the liberty o!" making the following ex tract front K letter recently received from an old and valued friend, which says a great deal in a lew j words : BALTIMORE, Jnly SI, 1853. j FRIEND BOWMAN The idea that in Tiio nineteenth 1 century, politicians should be called upon to aid one j party of professing Christians, in putting down an-| other, is, I was about to say, evidence that the world is retrograding—and that what vvecatl the dark "g< A , , were the ogos of light, to which we are now return- I uig!! 1 will not say, because I do not believe, that this I ouler called Kuow-Nothiiigs, had its origin in the Christian Church. There is a.class of men spread all over this country, who being neither hot nor co d, as politicians, have been spewed out of the mouths of both the Democratic and whig parties, as un worthy of confidence. 'I hese are the lathers o! 1 nis new ISM. They are like the troubled sea, constantly throwing up mod and filth. They re-ort to any means, however despicable, to attain their ends, in the North and West they ride the negro question, connected with know nothingism. In the Kast and some of the middle states they connect as far as they can, the question of Temperance with their new farce. North and West o* Mason's and l'ix-or. s line, the principle incentive offered to induce men to join the Lodges I- the hue and cry against Catholici ty. South of that line the Catholic is invited to join them. S>o that you .-e they are all things to all men. Fanning the flame ofpiejudice where prejudice ex ists. Raising discord wherever they find suitable material—giving credence to falsehood, misrepresen tation and fraud, in order to deceive and decoy. In this wav the uninformed are entrapped, and induced to Mtvr/r they will obey the orders of their mas ter.- in Council, and vote for only such men as they shall name through the vote of the Councils, wheth er they agree polttirally with such nominee or not! By this means they expect to rule rough-shod over the liberties of the People, into power and place. Viewing the matter in this light, as to its origin and objects, I feel bound, as a Protestant Christian and t Democrat, to oppose its progress. It is a dis grace to the name of America, and a counterfeit upon the true sentiments of her enlightened people. \VB shing you every success in your efforts in the cause of Religious and political Liberty, 1 remain your friend, 1).

ESPfThe Chambersburg Whig "supposes'' Gover ner Pollock to be a member of the Know-Nothing Party, but denies that he is "intolerant, illiberal, or proscriptive, either in polities or religion/' That Gov. pollock is not a man of this disposition, natu rally, we have always believed, and said so both be fore and after his election—but having assumed the dreadful obligations of the Order, he is as much ac countable lor the propagation of tiie '•revolting fea tures"'of Know-Notbingism as any nan connected with the Chambersburg or any other Lodge—and the only po-sible way to relieve himself from the deep odium which bangs to his skirts is to follow tlie ex ample set by Mr. BAIRD, by publicly denying his connection with this pestilential combination against the Constitution and t'ne best interests oi civilized life. Let him adopt the language of the 117 tig, and boldly proclaim to the world that no good citizen ought lo act with a party where "Jtce black-guard* respectable me t , and lie will receive credit for sincerity when he is an nounced as being ho-tile to intolerance and proscrip tion! Know Nothingism in Franklin county is no more revolting than Know-Xothingism in any other part of the State, and the man who, as Governor of this great Commonwealth, quietly acquiesces in their mill-night conspiracies, by declii: ing lo aid in expo sing them, is justly more censurable than those who hob! no official relation to the people. Does Mr. Pol lock endorse the policy of the Whip in its manly op position to this dark lantern oligarchy ? It he does and will make the tact appear, we will cordially join that Journal in tendering him the highest encomiums due to true Patriotism, But so long as Gov. Pollock maintains bis membership in the Order, the I'm innt of Pennsylvania will bold him accountable tor aid ing and abetting in upholding all the iniquity charg ed upon the Know-Nothings of Chambersburg. 31r. BAIRD, who was liieir candidate for justice of the Supreme Court has published a letter declaring that "he never has been, and never rau be, a Know-No thing," notwithstanding he was solemnly declared such, by the Kxecuttve Committee, betore the elec tion ! Then, it Gov. Pollock does not favor its enor mities, why does he not speak out like a man ? Why does he not lend the influence his position gives him to strike do ten a monster be helped to create, and which seeks to subvert everything t+irrt is dear to freemen ? Can the Whig give any good reason why the Governor, member of the Order,) should no re pudiate its gross violations of ail that pertains to de cency and right, if he does not sanction them? Is not this due to the Constitution, to his oath of offer, aricJ to llit? people whose interests he is sworn to pro tect ? We have no desire to do injustice to Governor Pollock, and in asking these questions, we trust the Whig will not consider us "censorious," but give the public what information he can touching the points alluded to. We say, in the sincerity of our heart, that if any prominent Democrat would refuse to give Li* opinion on this exciting question, we would hold him just as guilty as if he had subscribed to their oaths and cordially sanctioned all their acts—and, if a Democratic State Convention, or the Ihmocrahr Press , would evert lend their rouutevaaee to build up a secret oath-bound political association, we would denounce them as fully and as emphatically as we have denounced the present organization, regardlessoj trhont it slisjileased. Hence, we cannot but admire the bold and manly course now pursued by the edi- tor of the Whig K7"Tbe EXPOS! J RES of Know-Nothing ism, which we publish on the first page, will he read with thril- ; ling interest. These exposures, it will be remem bered, come from men who joined the Order in good i faith, and were driven from it by the dreadful out- j rages perpetrated in the Lodges to which they be longed. All true Democrats, who have been decoy ed into the organization, will follow the natriqiir ex- j WHO joined throng. l corrupt motives will stick and become th e ftg en<l of j the old federal party. The press of the nation is dai ly and weekly tilled with Know Nothing renuncia tions. LHler of Rev. John A. Collins. |"r The eloquent and masterly letter written by Rev. JOHN A.

Cbamlwfrsburg Repository ami Whig of ■ last Week contains a /iomr exposure of thedoings of j fciiou-N'othiugism, truly revolting, ami calotlafeif to j sicken nml disgust the reader with the gross wicked- | lies* which has taker) possess ion of a portun of the; people. The writer of this exposure is a niember of ! the order, and says lie is fully prepared to substan- , tiute the charges he prefers. In alluding 10-this ex- ' ! posure, the Whig says : ! "It is true, ns stated in the communication, that i Mr. Kwtixsox was authorized by ihe Kditor of this j j paper to pre.-ent bis name as a member of tlie Coun- ! ol.andvve never did anything in better faith. We bad | up to that period acted in consultation with the len ding members of that party, and sought to lilvnnce its interests, because we believed that it woujd prove j a powerful ally in our warfare upon the Deupcrary. ; Its alleged intolerance, in either politics or liligion, was uniformly and repeatedly denied, and ve had every reason to believe thai we could act vith it , consistently as a U'big. and that it would eventually become a part of the Whig party. We learned a lesson, however, when our narne got behind the scenes; and when we found a hanlliit of; irresponsible creatures contiolling the whole action i of the Order, and wielding it as a mere instrument to j minister to the wants of starving nPwspnpeis and ' broken-down politicians, we did not hesitate U> de nounce the system, and the record we give iff Moth- j er column fully vindicates us in the course we! pave taken. We could have been connected with thp Know- Nothing party both before and after the action of this Council; we have been waited upon repeatedly since, i both at home and ami abroad, and inaportbiied to be come a member of the Order ; but we can act with no party where live blackguards can overrule as many hundred respectable men. and where the names of men without political or moral lilemish, can be dragged belore the inquisition, without their knowl edge, for the avowed purpo-e of impairing their poli tical standing. That this was done here in this Council, in the case of ISAAC 11. MCCACI.KV, L 15,,., c-.- art f'tr/Ztf prry trrtl to . We give the names oi the persons who were conspicuous ill the effort ami who. supposing themselves sheltered by the oath bound secrecy of the members, earnestly urged the presentation of his name in order to reject him, and injure hint, as well as Cov. I'OU.OLK, in the Cosssil abroad. We were not surprised after the insight we got in to the system in December last. that the Council here should even gn so far as to dictate to it. mem bers what papers they should withdraw their sub scrijitions from, and what ones they should support.— Such a resolution was adopted in flu- Council, as our corre.-poiideut states, and copies of it were ordered !o Ire sent to the different Councils of the county. All thi the rejection of the Kditor of this paper in violation of all rules, alter having been thrice elect ed— the presentation and rejection of Mr. McCu i.KV'S name without his authority or knowledge, and the pa-sage ol the resolution requesting the members to withdraw their support f rom Ibis paper,—was done in camphance with the earnest begging of the little organ's friends to keep it fiom starving! It did not pretend to claim a living support on iis own merits; but it coaxed and bullied the Council- to take if tin der their e-pecial protection, tintd hundreds of intel ligent, high-minded members were driven !roni the party in di-gust. This series of outrages upon decency and justice perpetrated by Sri- uis.wun. K\ STICK, STUKAI.Y C'I.AKK fx Co., has left the Council in this place but a nomi nal existence. We shall bring forward any necessa ry number of men of undoubted veracity, to attest the correctness of the charges preferred again-t it under the lead of the few demagogues who control it; and if there are any reputable men still half-clinging to the tottering structure, they will he compelled by the force of popular opinion to seek safety by an ear ly withdrawal. Already a number have done so; and others mean tfo absent thems-lveg former with out a formal sepai at ion. A card signed lw eight or ten was sent into (lie Council last week, and the de cision of the very grave body, with about twelve men in attendance, was that those persons should not he permitted to withdraw unless tiiey should come and do so in person. Stuff)bangh, Kyster h: Strealy decreed it,and tbe "Yankee office-hunter" doubtless concurred ! —We submit the facts presented in this paper to the candid, dispassionate retieetion of every honora ble and just man, and we shall abide by the popular verdict as to the correctness of our course. We could long since have exposed 'be disreputable the LEADVJ> ALti* W&itirtttU frnVen fo "In-tray its s erefs. to divert public attention from its falsehoods and petty trickery ou other i-sues. It has now' rais ed The curtain, and we rejoice that we have an atffple opportunity of vindicating outsell, and ol exposing the unparalleled political villainy that has marked the Council of Chambersburg. It is but just to say that but few of the many who once belonged to this Council, can ill any degree he held responsible for these actions, as the better por tion of its members were soon driven fiom active participation in its proceedings by the tricksters uho Mill adhere to it, and who proscribe all who refus to -auction continued secret action. The names d" those u ho are responsible for these actio!.-, bowevel, can be forthcoming if neces-ary ! THE ELECTION OF GENERAL JO. LANE. As is usual with the opposition, now congreg.i <! under the narne oi know-uothings, great hopes wire enferta.iied and many predictions made that the in- j doubtable General Lane, of Oregon, would be deflat ed in his canvass for re-election to Congress; buMhe, result has been Ins complete and commanding tie umph.

All who stand oppose*? to Know Notlung .iti—who repudiate the abominable acts of the late pgislatnre—and who desire, honestly, the triumph ' DEMOCRATIC PRIXCIPLEsS-are cordially in- Attto attend. A titirnher of able speaker.- will be 'esent to address the meeting. II oit * Charles S. H on-head. The dilemma in which a gentleman is apt to involve himself by lending his name and giving his energies to a proscriplive party is aptly anil amusingly illustrated in the following sketch from the last Lexington (Kentucky) Statesman. We have had great respect for Mr. M.'s person al character, but this curious retrospect almost awakens our commiseration. It will not be forgotten that he is now the candidate for gov ernor of Kentucky of the spurious American party : "A CHANGE or TACTICS. —TO the know nothing ritual, as it appeared in their own or gans, an.! as it was republished the other (lav in this paper, our readers will remember that hav ing a Catholic wife disqualified a man from becoming a member of the secret order. Hut it will be seen that, in the secret circular of the Frankfort know-nothing executive committee, which we published in our Tuesday's paper, it is provided as follows: " f>. Having a Catholic wife does not NOW disquslify any such person from becoming a member of the order.' •'Some have supposed Ihnf this new piece ol tactics originated in a desire to get more vjtei> into the order: hut, while we do not deny that such a motive may have had its influence, w> can well conceive that the immediate cause o; this interpolation into the know-nothing creed had its origin in the peculiar antecedents of Mr Charles S. Morehead, the Hindoo candidate lot governor. ".Mr. M >rehead has been the husband of twc wives, hotli of who n fie married in this city both of whom were daughters of the same pa rents: and those parents were Catholics in reli gion, and reared their children in that faith. "The parents of Mr. ?.i irefnad's two wivet were not only Catholics in religion, but, what is still more astonishing when relied that the excellent Mr. Morehea l is the know-noth ing candidate for governor, lln'V were Irisl | people—very respectable, to |>e sure, and none the worse for that, in democratic estimation | hut still they were Irish, ami attested the coun try of their origin by the 'rich Irish brogue.'— Their name was J,'aw. On- nf Mr. More head's marriages took place dming the pa-lora administration of Father linden, n fnithlul Cath olic priest, who had charge of the Catholic Hock in this citv in those davs. Father linden wa also a native of the Emerald Isle, and his acceiu j was also eniiched bv the 'brogue :' ami he wa: (lie priest who officiated on (he occasion of oru ; of Mr. Moreliead's mairiages : but that was he fire the excellent Mr. Morehead got scared a' ; th-' Pop**, or thought of becoming the know ; nothing caiutTdate for governor. In those day? the excellent Mr. M trehea.i thought tiie Irish and the Catholics very clever people -. but, then, says' the adage,'wise men change their opinion: fools never.'" Tin: MISFORTUNE OF A SI-KCIT-ATOR. — Set! j T. Huril of the Hrownsville Clipper, tells tin : following: Not a thousand miles fsom this p.lace there re sides a man who, during the time of great scar city Ift winter, was the possessor of severa hundred barrels of flour. This be declared hi would not sell under £ I ."> per barrel, and though he had an opportunity of disposing oi it several tiim-s, at from >sl i fo §l2, h" yei field on to it, doubtless hoping that the crop? j this season would fail, and he would profit theiehv. The prospect of a beautiful harvest bcrami ; visions fe||-low-r and lower, when lie hecauu alarmed lest Ilour should come f<> s | or -ISb, and he shipped it to Pittsburg, where he sold it foi about §!) pur barrel. li •r- tin ned, supposing In- had made the hesl of a had bargain, but ere long he i.-reived a i n tt.-r from the person to whom h-- had sold the nonr, requesting him to come down immediate | Iv. He accordingly set out for Pittsburg, and |on arriving there he found all his floor ha I turned sour, and he was compelled to return the money and fake baek the flour, which he j afterwards sold to a starch maker for $-2 and per ! arrel. and again returned to bis home "a wiser if not a better man." - The Flour speculators in New York, ire severely caught, iii consequence of the ranid decline in prices, in view of tile promised abun dance of the coming hat vests, both here and in Europe. It is stated that some parties who purchased on time, in May, when prices were ' as high as §l2 and §l3 per bbl. are turning ; over their contracts now, and paving a differ ence of from §2 to §3,io per barrel. Some sales were made on Saturday, of good brands, at §7. Speculators in Philadelphia also sutler pretty severely in tile* same way. It is even said that many sales of Floor here have been made within the last few davs, at a greatly j reduced figure than what appears in the pub lished report of the market, hut kept secret with I a view not to affect the general market.

TUB NATIONAL Organ, the organ of the Know-Nothings, takes the Pennsylvania State Council to task for insubordination, and declares that "(lie members of the American Order have incurred a solemn obligation to abide by its decrees." The following is its language : THE PENNSYLVANIA SCHISM. —It has usually been considered that a party which accepts a representation in a common convention, is bound by the act ol that body. It in moreover known lluil I he. members of the . Imericnn order hnrv ' tneured n solemn obligation to abide by ifs dc- ' crees. In violation, as we conceive, of both j these principles, a large section of the American i order in Pennsylvania has separated itself, and ! whilst it lias adopted the greater part of the National Platform, it has repudiated that clause which proposed the settlement of the most dan gerous d u est ion that has ever presented itself to j the American people. "The Pittsburg I uion." The Pittsburg daily Union—published by Thomas - ,T. Keenan & Co—is one of the best papers in the i State—decidedly the best one in Pittsburg. In fact j it is now the only reliable democratic paper in I that city. Our readers ivilf notice that nearly all j our telegraphic reports arc from the "Pittsburg Dai- ! Iv Union." The T'niun is Democratic to the core, and free from all suspicions of being under Know- Nothing controf. Any prr-on desiring an excellent daily paper could not do better than send for the Union.
