EDWARD PEARSON, ESQ. | CORONOR: \ HENRY TAYLOR, ESQ. are happy to slate that the Editor is still improving, and is now on a fair way to recover. A WORD TO VOTERS! \U7 = " Freemen of Bedford County, the election is close at hand. On Tuesday next you will be called upon to deposit your votes for the candidates that have been placed in nomination. A more important election has not been held for manv years. If you love the Constitution for which your forefathers have bled and died— if vou cherish and wish to perpetuate the glori ous privileges of our institutions —under which some of you have lived so long, and that so hap pily—it is high time that you should arouse and assist in striking do\vn this vile monster of know nothingism. That the Democratic Party is able, if united, todo this, we want no better evidence than the fact that their regularly nominated candidate for Canal Commissioner has been made to withdraw and acquiesce in the nomi nation of another man who comes before the people as the candidate of all the factions in the Stale. They know too well that their Order is too weak to attempt to run a candidate of their own—they know that hundreds have left them, and many more are leaving every day—but, in order to defeat the Democratic candidate foi Ca nal Commissioner, and for this sole purpose a lone, the}' are wjlting to abandon their nominee and go \yith abolitionists. We hope the FREE MEN of Bedford County will shew, on Tues day next, by giving a united support to the Democratic Ticket, that there is something more than a mere preference for candidates to be gained by this contest; lhat there is a principle involved which is dear to every lover of the CONSTITUTION and of civil and religious liberty. We cannot believe that the people will again place in power, men who have not the interest of their constituents at heart, but are sworn to act in accordance to the dictates of a secret oath-bound Order. We think the people of this Commonwealth were sickened to the very heart by the acts ol the Kno;v Noth ing Legislature last winter ; and if they will but remember the manner in which the* s<jmn dered the money ol the tax-payer, the law they passed in direct opposition to the expressed will of the majority, voting themselves five hundred dollars for the session, endeavoring to remove the Capitol to Philadelphia, and thereby incur; a heavv expanse tor the tax-payer to pay, and many other laws which the people repudiate j as unjust and tyrannical, they will see that this , is the time to crush these fanatical spuit.-, a.id , teach them that the people rule. FREEMEN, 1 aiAise, and let the result ot luesday next, pro claim to the world that you still love the Con stitution and the Union. Arnold S'lumtr. ILfThis gentleman—the Democratic nomi nee for Canal Commissioner —is one ot the purest and best men in the Commonwealth, and will be elected by an overwhelming majority. The respectable papers of every party in the State speak of him in terms of praise—ail, even his bitterest political enemies, admit that he stands before the people with a character, both moral and political, unstained by a single blem ish. Such a man the people will always dt~ light to honor. OLIGARCHY. Pittsburg Union, speaking of the withdrawal of the Know-Nothing, Whig, and Abolition candidates, for Canal Commissioner, and acquiescing in the nomination of Nichol son, says: — •'But dangerous as must appear every innova tion which threatens the destruction ot the re publican sentiment —humiliating as is the con templation of laige masses of the American peo ple acquiescing calmly in the usurpation of authority, it cannot be denied, that there lias latelv appeared in one ot the political parties ol the day, a tendency to acknowledge and submit to the domination and dictation ol the lew, and to drown the voices ot the mass with the ty- lard's of necessity. But a few days ago the name ot 1 eler .Mar- j tin apeared at the head of the Know-Nothing tacket as the candidate tor Canal Commissioner. 11cannot denied that he was the regular nociime, of the Order in the State. Suddenly ,t is taken down, and the name o! .Mr. Nichol son appears in its place. How was the change effected 1 Simply by the wholesale usurpation j of authority by an Executive Committee—by a regular bargain and sale-by a piece ol trickery and management among the leaders and s[>oi!s men, with which the masses had nothing to do. Will they submit to it ' Of course they will. The majority does not control the Know-Noth ing order. It is in the hands ot the wire-pul lers —and the members are but the puppits. .To talk about the majority ruling, in an oath bound league, controlled and managed by the corrupt and broken down politicians ol ail the parties that have ever existed, is ridiculous. It in vain that here and there an independent voice attempts to assert its abhorrence at such bare-faced usurpation. The 2rand cnup tP elnf has been made. The order is in the hands of its own committee, and the oligarchy of Know- Nothing win is finally established. lUP'DEMOCRATS it is very essential to the success of our party this fall, that every voter is at the polls on the election. Let no Democrat remain at home—let no excuse be sufficient to keep him away. Every man should cast his vote on next Tuesday. The time is at hand Democrats must strike, and save the Con stitunon apd the Country. O\E 4'EEK LATER FROM EUROPE. ARRIVAL OF THE STEAMERS AMERICA AM) WASHINGTON. MOST IMPORTANT FROM THE CRIMEA ! SEBASTOPOL IN RUINS, A A 2J> 1; VAC I ATE. TERRIFIC SLAUGHTER OF FRENCH AND ENGLISH. Over 20,000 ot the Allies, and i 0,000 llussiasis Slain! ,\EW YORK, Sept. 27. The America brings European dates to the 15th inst. Her news from the Crimea is most important, announcing in full the fall of Sebasto pol, so long and so anxiously expected, on the i bth, after a bombardment ot three days and six ; repulses, one being a severe repulse of the ! French with terrific slaughter at the Redan Fort before the Malakotf tower, in which the I English and French troops lost about gO,OOU men, and the Russians more than half that num ber. The enemy evacuated the town alter blowing up the defences, sinking ali their ships and firing the city, leaving but a mass of smoul dering ruins. The total loss in this terrific af fair is" more than 30,000. Five French gener als, including General Bosquet, are among the ! killed. A large allied force is marching along the coast to intercept the inland retreat ot tiie Rus- sians. The Allies have captured an immense amount of the materials of war. It is reported that the Allies have demanded the unconditional surrender ot all the Russian troops, stores and defences in the Crimea, inclu ding the town of Odessa. . An attempt lias been made to assassinate Na poleon. PLAN OF THE ATTACK.—The place was at tacked in lour different diiections. i lie Brit ish attempted to storm Redan, the French to , attack Malakoff. The French extreme right J made a division on Little Redan, while the Eng lish, French and Sardinians made a united at tack on the central battery, l'he attacks were ; all made simultaneously with great spirit and energy, but the most eminently successful one was made bv Generals Bosquet and i\lac-.Ma hon, on Malakoff. Both the Redan and central batteries were at one time m the hands ot j the Allies, but it was found impossible to hold them under the accurate and murderous tire ot j the Russians. OPERATIONS IN THE SEA OF AZOFF.— A dis patch from the Sea of Azoff slates thai the : Allies are doing immense damage to th£ Rus sian vessels and merchandise along the coast. I The fisheries are almost entirely destroyed, and i the damage is estimated at several millions ol < francs. Two British steamers were about ascending the Gulf of Oukliook to destroy the government collected on the coast. FRANCE.—Bellmore, the would-be assassin, is undoubtedly a maniac, and will not be tried. 1 He will be sent to the Lunatic Hospital. The Emperor was to leave Paris on Tuesday,! the Sth, lor the camp at St. Outer, to review j the troops destined tor the Crimea. DENMARK.—It is reported that Austria has i j offered mediation to Denmark in the ditiicul ! ties with the United States concerning the ; ; Sound dues. RUSSIA.—A dispatch from St. Petersburg says the Czar intends going to Warsaw on the 13th with Count Nesse 1 rode, who will, it is supposed, there arrange for an interview with the King A Prussia. LATEST BV TELEGRAPH.—London, Saturday September lb.— A Paris correspondent says it is reported that 2b,000 troops embarked at Balaklava lor North of Sebastopol, and also that the Russian: are in lull retreat towards Pere kop. The Paris papers are discussing the quest ion whether Sevastopol is tenable by the Allies while the Russians are masters of the forts dn the .North sde, fronting tile sea. A dispatch from the Danube, dated the 14th, says the bJotkade. ships are expected to be or dered home immediately. It is rumord in the clubs to-dav, that the Allies have foind I*2oo guns in Sebastopol, and also, that the Russians were falling back cm Backsha SeraS ;but French rumors say that the Russians still cvtainiy hold the north side ol Sebastopol, and vj|l to the last extremity. It is also rumored in ?aris that the Allied admirals have decided that t is not expedient to enter the harbor ol Sebastopl, until Fort Constantine is silenced. It is proable that the Allies will at tack Fort Constantie from Fort Alexander and Artillery Bay. Later—Arrival ohhc Steamer U'ashing -011. NEW YORK, Sept. 2.— The steamship Wash ington, (rom Suuthainton, arrived at three o'- clock this altetnoon, tinging dates to the 12th mst. Iroin London ancf.iverjiooi. She brings 300 passengers. , Gen. Simpsoi, in adi a tch dated Sebaslopdfc Sept. 9th. says—Sebastijol is in the hands <*r the Allies. Tie enemy evacuated the sousf side, after exploding the, magazines, settirig tire to the towi, and burj n g a H the ships of war except thive strainers The bridge com municating wilh the orth ide was destroyed., A dispatch to the f minister of war, says: Karaheiuia and a (l th side of Sebas topol no longer exist, lie enemy perceiving, our solid occupation, evdiateA the place alter blowing up nearly all The chid lionots ol the day are du*i Generals Bosquet ; and Machmaker. A dispatch from Varna.ys : —Malakofl and Redan, batteries ol Careenj Bay, w rr carried by storm. On seeing the *ench eagles float ing on Malakof, General v Salles made two attacks upon the central b.y) fI , but failed. Prince Gortachakoff tel4iphs on the 9th that Sebastopol, alter sustailr a niost irtfetoal fire, and repulsing six succe| e as>aults, louftfl we could nut drive the errJrom Malakolfa of which they had Q ur biavej troops resisted to the last extremity. The ene my found nothing in the southern part of the town but blood-stained ruins. When the intelligence of the fall of Sebasto pol reached London and the provincial cities, demonstrations of jov were manifested at all the theatres and places of amusement. When the facts were officially announced at each place, hands struck up the national anthems of Eng land and France. The news of the evacuation of Petropaulowski by the Russians, reached London on the 11th. FRANCE. —The life of the Emperor of the French was attempted on the night of the 1 Oth, when some person tired two pistols at a carriage in which it was supposed the Emperor was.— The assassin was arrested. His name is Belle man, and he isevidenly a maniac. Tor the Gazette. A W ORD TO FREEMEN. In the approaching contest which is to come off on 1 the 9th inst., only let our Patriot forces he marshal ' led in solid colums and we shall perform a solemn . i duty to our Fathers, ami to ourselves—let the memo \ ry of the departed heroes, and sages of the Revolu : tion, stimulate us to assist in staying the rohing tide that would sweep away the Constitutional ob ligations so olten and so successfully defended by Jackson, Clay, Calhoun, Webster. Cass, and other noble spirits. .And you "Old line Whigs who con- i stitute the guard about the tomb of Clay—who love ] j to dwell with delight upon bis heroics devotion and I : almost super human efforts in the cause of the rights ' of man, and the honor of his beloved country, stirnu- I late you to the same patriotic devo'ion—now in the j ' winter of discontent made hideous by the bow lings ' of fanatics in all quarters of the tin ion—come up to: ! the work like men—unite your efforts with the ever 1 true Constitutional party,and once more, my friends, j 1 our beloved m-titutions will be preserved, and by the , Divine permission, handed down to the end of posteri- I j ty. So thai from generation to generation our de-"* cendant- may sit under their own vine arid tig tree, and worship God according to the dictates o! con, ' ] science with none lo make them afraid. Oh ! my deluded brethren you who have left the 1 1 line of safe precedents—and in tin evil moment of mi-conception fallen into an evil and destructive or ; ganization. Come out from its baneful influence as j j speedily as possible, and take your stand once again ' i on the side of your beloved country, and do or die in j the cause of liberty and Union. In 1812-11 ambitions and designing mer. asked j what is the Constitution worth, of what value is the i j Union / in that day courage and patriotism triumph- I ; eil and the country was saved, and this was the j answer the people gave to the Harford Convention, j Ihe country was then saved irorn impending ruin— j and we are now called on once again to stand to our ! colors and nail our (lag to the* mast-bead of "old Con- I stitutioii" and whip tbe enemy—as did that gallant old Sal! in the "Iron Sides" in the war of 1812—let our people only be made acquainted with the extent ot their danger, and arts, and combinations of their j | adversaries, and the result will be no longer doubt- I ful. i'he Democratic party will discomfit their oppo- i j nents hy a defeat so thorough and complete, that it 1 ! will be her-after regarded as a more firm re-adaption : I of the Constitution by the people and will bind lis j more strongly than ever in fraternal bonds in all the ■ ; States of tbe Union.

Read on our first page to-day, the remarks of Hon. A. H. STEPHENS, who is known as one of j the most able Whigs in Georgia. We have no j doubt that there are in Bedford County, many ; Whigs, who rnterlain the same sentiments, and \viff, on Tuesday next, show bv voting the De mocratic ticket, that they have not yet consent ed to be governed by a mid-night oath . " , bound association : ftuv. Dr.. • -0/7tW*r. -or. VutX.VTttrY OX til'!?. ! Tr.-T-ni Know Nothings, (says the Jfissisain jiian,) arid particularly those professing reli gion, ponder the following extracts from the Gospel oi Jesus : and we especially invite the | attention of Methodists to Rev. Dr. Clarke's comments thereon. Torn to (he first Epistle of James, 3th chapter, and 12th verse and read • : i; H U { above all things, my brethren, swear not, J : neither by heaven, neither by the earth, nei ther by any other oath, lest ye fall into con demnation." So likewise in Matthew, sth chapter, and 34-th verse : "But I say unto , you, swear not at all , neither by heaven, for it I is God's throne, nor by the earth, for it is His j footstool, nor by Jerusalem, far it is the city | of the great King.'" Rev. Dr. Clarke, in his commentary on these passages, says : "He that uses any oath, j except that which lie is solemnly called 'by the 1 magistrate to make, so fur from being a Chris tian, does not deserve the reputation of decency j or common sense." i 15 A SI U E Ei I?: j Cn the 25th day of September, in Cutnber !

DIED, At the residence of her Mother, on Saturday morn ! ins the 25th ult. of Pulmonary consumption, VICTO | uu, daughter of the late William and Mrs. Mary late, If it is a grateful task to he permitted to pen the last tribute to the memory of an heir of Grace at any ! time, how much more so is it to place on record the j names of those, who though children in years, under ! j the genial,'cherishing beams of the Sun of Right-I eousness, aer early ripened for Heaven. Oh! how good ! and how kind is the blessed God of our Salvation, in giving to his children here, not only his sure promt j ses to uphold them under the burden and heat of the conflict into which they have entered—the conflict "With sin— -1 emptatinn without and corruption within," j but aho lest their faltering taith should fail thern, amid the storms and strifes incident to our state of i probation, giving them, as their tVfevv prisoners of hope, one by one are passing, upheld St>y the everlast | ing arms, over the Jordan ol death, and casting their anchor,' sure and stiong, upon the other share, such glimpses of the bright, eternal glories within the | veil, as revives their drooping feats, and gives them ' courage and strength to wield the whole armor of '"'d, and fight anew the good tight of faith, until that j tpe, when the Master shall say "it is enough come ' j higher," Such was the privilege of those who j I witnessed the death scene of the subject of this me- ; | moir : Those who watched in her dying chamber. j "Were privileged beyond tbe common walks of life j titiite on the verge offleaveji." Her end was such as might have been expected i front her pure, con-istent life, but as the limits jot an obituary notice would tail us to describe. She : early gave her heart to God, and he early tried her ; faith in the turnace of affliction ; hut it only proved j ber foundation to be pure gold, arid the fires oply re fined it. Her experience was mq& precious during her protracted sufferings, and a tit-be end, her doubts all removed, her fears all fled. He Ivbo had given her living grace, made good his her dy ing grace and crowned that grace vvijtv j), lr . ing her dying hours there was no d&ubiing " that the "Angel of the Covenant" was with her. The pre cious Redeemer whs theie saying, "fear not 1 am with thee." and when with the last dying effort she prayed, "Jesus take me home," he answered the pe- j : tition, and the sentence of prayer begun on earth*] ended in a song ot triumphant praise in Heaven -Jtf. She was gone: and while the mourner lingered at her j' I couch, glory, bright, inedible glory burst upon her ■ ! vision, 1 j "The sunshine of Heaven beamed bright on tier wa-' king And the song fhjftt she heard, was the Seraphim's | song" <• | Oh! "let me die the death of the righteous and let IIIV LA-t end be like his." 11. On the morning of the 29th nit,, Mr. Philip Rltch py, son of Abraham llitrhey, of Snake Spring Valley, died suddenly. The deceased wa-> a man who de servedly enjoyed the highest esreem of the entire Community in which lie lived. The day before his

death he appeared to enjoy perfect health, and during the whole day and evening, he exhibited an unusu ally fine How of spirits and had purposed ri-ing early in the morning to pursue the labours of the day to advantage; but how strange are the ways of piovi dence; he arose very early and dres-ed himself.but thinking it to early, he stepped towards his bed to lie down a little while aghm when he suddenly fell to the floor and before a light could be procured he had passed from time to eternity! He was in the 3Sth of his age. "He ye also ready for ye know not when the Son of Man cometh." LIST OF LF.TTF.KS Remaining in the "Post Of fice at Bedford Pa., Sept. 20th, 1855.
