THE BEDFORD GAZETTE. Bedford, Bee. '2l, 1 G. W. Bowman, Editor and Proprietor- Bemocratic County leeling! The Democracy of Bedford County will meet, in Mass meeting, at the Court House in Bedford on MONDAY EVENING of the approaching Court to choose conferees to meet those of Fulton and Somerset to select a Senatorial delegate to the next State Convention and to make other ar rangements for a full and thorough organization of the Democratic Party of Bedford County.— It is hoped that every Democrat who can make it convenient to attend will <1 > so. Several speeches will be made on the occasion. JOHN P. HEED, Chairman County Committee. CC7* Absence fwm home, lor several days, has pre vented us from giving any attention to our editorial columns. GG?"Congress has not yet organized. The best part of a month has now been spent by that Know Noth ing body in trying to elect a Speaker, but without ef fect! Whilst these beautiful are acting out this farce, they are reckle>sly squandering about fifty thousand dollars per day of the People's money, according to the calculation of an intelligent gentle man we met in Harrisburg a few days since—lor, by the failure of the House to organize, the business of Ihe Senate, together with all the other Departments of the Government, have been brought to a dead stand 1 And three are the " Americans" that desire to rule "America !" rry We invite attention to ttie advertisement of Tiros. R. GF.TTVS, Jr., by which it will be seen that he has fitted op a room in the "Exchange Building," and is prepared to take pictures of the finest style.— Mr. Gettys' pictures ate good and handsome, and are said to "snatch a grace beyond the reach of art." i<r*SJT|#oaching; call and have your likeness taken, and present it to your friend. Exchange Hotel, liollitlaysbnrg, Pa. 017" Holiidaysburg has long been in want of a good Hotel, and the "Exchange" can now bp styled such, without any violation of the truth. It is kept by J. WINUATK, Esq., and is conducted in a manner that cannot fail to give entire satisfaction. The table is as good as any reasonable person could desire—the servants are attentive—and the beds and chambers are clean and comfortable. Whilst Mr. WIXOATK possesses all the qualifications of a good Landlord within himself, his assistant, WM. F. BAIICOCK, Esq. i- certainly one of the most accommodating and gen tiemeoly men we have ever met as the manager of a Hotel. The "Exchange" has recently undergone a thorough repair, being newly papered and painted— and we take pleasure in recommending it as a Hotel every way worthy the patronage of the travelling public. Another of the clever gentlemen to be found about the "Exchange" is A. HKAKMITT, Esq., agent for the Hack running between that place and Bedford, who does all in his pown to render comfortable those who travel the road, which, like most of country roads, is very rough at this season of the year. This, however, is no fault of the Proprietors of the Line. Robbery of the Arsenal. [{./""JAMES A. DRANE, Superintendent of the State Arsenal at Harrisburg, has been arrested and is now in the Dauphin County Jail on a charge of abstracting and fraudulently disposing of certain arms belonging to the Commonwealth. A. Cont'dv, a member elect to the Legislature from Philadelphia, and at present conductor on the Pennsylvania Rail Road, is also strongly implicated in this dirty transaction, and has been bound over to answer at the approaching Criminal Court in Harrisburg, which takes place in January, when all the facts connected with the case will be fully developed. The arms have been recovered and will be returned to the Arsenal. An example will be set in this case, which, we think, will he instrumental in putting a check to Commonwealth stealing, which lias been carrietl to an alarming extent during the past fifteen or twenty years, a fact generally admitted, whilst the ofleiiders have escaped punishment. No class of men should be so severely dealt with as those who violate the sacred trust reposed in them of administer ing the aflairs of government, whether in high V more obscure places. Gen. f ass autl the Presidency* We are authorized (says the Washington Union,) by General CASS to say that in the caucus of demo cratic senators on Wednesday last he declared that tie was 110 candidate for the presidency, and that he was unwilling for his name to be presented as such at the National Convention. Whilst General Cass thus positively writhdraws his name from the presi dential canvass, be has abated none of his zeal in be half of democratic principles, and none of his patrio tic devotion to the cause of the constitution and the Union. Since writting the above, we received the Peun sylvanian of yesterday morning, which contains the subjoined letter: DETROIT, Nov. 2'i, 15.75. GENTLEMEN : I have received your letter asking me if I arn a candidate for the office of President of tlre t inted States, and expressing the gratification it would give you to support me lor that high station. Whiie thanking you lor this manifestation of your kindness and confidence,of which 1 shall always pre serve a grateful recollection, I reply that 1 am not a candidate for the presidency, nor do 1 desire that my name should be presented iri connection with it to the consideration of the democratic party of the U riion. 1 am, gantlenieu, with great regard, truly yours, LEWIS CASS. Andrew J. Websters, Esq. and others.

The steamship Prometheus, from San J nan, arrived on Saturday, with California dates to the 20th ult. She lelt San Juan on the 2d instant, with the passengers brought down by the uncle sam. Her passengers consequently made the I trip in about 17 days. The transit over the Isthmus was effected in 28 hours. The Uncle Sam left San Francisco with 250 passenger s and §350,000 in Gold, i |Her news is anticipated by the Northern Light, at New York, yesterday, which will be 1 found below.| : New YOUK, Dec. 11. The steam ship Northern Light, from San Juan, arrived at her wharf at I o'clock this af ternoon, bringnig dates from California to the 20th ult. Gen. Win. H. Richardson, United States Marshal for the Nortben district of California, was assassinated at San Francisco on the night of tlie 17th of November, by an Italian gambler named Cossa. Isaac B. Wall, Collector of the Port at Mon terey, has been murdered near San Luis Chispo, together with a companion named Thomas Williamson. The murder of Gen. Richardson had caused intense excitement at San Francisco, and stren uous efforts were being made by certain parties to get the assassin out of the hands ot the au thorities for the punpose of lynching him, but these attempts had been frustrated by the thin ness of the Sheriff. Mr. Williamson who was killed in company with collector Wall, was th" assessor of Monte rey county. The murderers ol the latter gentle man were supposed to be a party of Mexicans and a trader named Corcia. Pursuit was made by a party of Americans under the Sheriff of the countv, the murderers were overtaken atSalina, when a fight ensued, during which two of the Sheriff's party were killed. Capt. Archibald Mcßea, of the Ravetiue Cut ter McLean, had committed suicide during a temporary (it of insanity. Tlit? Indian difficulties in the north continues. A battle had been fought on Bouge River, be tween 300 Indians and 4-00 Regulars under Capt. Smith ol Fort Lane. The light lasted 9 hours, when the troops were obliged to re treat, with the loss of IS killed and 25 wound ed. Gen. Wool had proceeded to the scene of trouble. Tho dates from Salt Lake are to the 11th of October. Difficulties had occurred between the Mormons and the Eutaw Indians. Several Mormons have been murdered. The banking house of Sanders Brennan,at San Francisco, had failed. T heir liabilities are 80,000 —their assets nothing. Some rain had lallen, and there was much snow in the mountains, but the winter rains had not set in. The minners are awaiting the rainy season, and not much gold is coming in. The steamer John L. Stephens arrived upon the 14-th, and the Sierra Nevaoa on the Kith, all well. RECEPTION or THE KINO OF SA-KDINIA IN PARIS. —The Paris correspondent of the London Times, under date of November 23, writes: The great event of this day is the arrival of the King of Sardinia in Paris. From 11 o'clock this morning* a.considerable portion of the pop ulation of Paris tiiruriged toward the terminus of the Lvotis railroad to receive, and welcome with their acclamations, Victor Emmanuel.— Though the MonHeur had announced that the royal COr/ege would pass aiong the quavs and the Rue de Rivoii, a great many houses on the Boulevards, the clubs and theatres, were from an earlv hour decorated with flags, displaying the nalional colors of France, England, Sardi nia, and Turkey. The Cirque An poison, in particular, was re marked for the elegance of its decorations.— The Rue de Rivoli, the jtlacz of the Hotel de Viile, and the quays—in fact, the entire line a long which the King was to pass—were similar ly adorned, as also the faqnade of the station and the large court-yard. On the pi net itself de tachments of lout chasseurs and of the line kept tlie ground, and the guards of honor within the court were selected from the grenadiers and vol tigeurs of the Imperial Guard. A canopy of crimson velvet, fringed with gold, hung over the door of the waiting-room, which had been transformed into a splendid saloon, hung with red velvet, fastened up with gold. Clusters of tiags belonging to the allied na tions, with the name of V ictor Emmanuel, and the shields with his roval arms, completed the ornament. A rich carpet extended from the doar to the path-way, on which the King was to step from the carriage, and galleries to the right and left had been prepared lor those who were specially invited. A detachment of the Cent-Gardes and Guides were drawn upon both sides of the entrance to the waiting-room, and seven of the imperial carriages awaited his Maj esty and suite. At !'2J o'clock Prince Napoleon left the Pa lais Royal in a stale carriage, preceded by two outriders wearing the imperial livery. Marshal Magnan, Col. Fleury, the Prefects of the Seine and Police, and a great number of public func tionaries, civil and military, awaited Prince Napoleon at the railroad station. The members of the council of administration, the station mas ters, and all the employes, were drawn up with in. .At 1 o'clock, precisely, the arrival of the royal train was announced, and in five minutes after the locomotive, decked out with the Sar dinian colors, stopper! ; the drums beat to arms, and the full hand of the Guides, who were sta tioned at the entrance of the reception room, struck up the .1 lurch o'e Snvtiic. The King, who wore the uniform of a colonel of Hussars, descended from the carriage, and was received first by Prince Napoleon, whose hand he shook warmly, and replied to the words of welcome ol tlie Prince. The loyal cortege entered the waiting room ; the whole of the persons who filled it rose, and received his Majesty with acclamations of "Vive le Roi"Vive It Prince JS'apolron which were taken up and repeated by the crowd which thronged the court of the station arid the ap proaches to it. The carriages soon drove up in order at the entrance, and the King and his attendants en tered them. Prince Napoleon and his Majesty entered the same carriage, which was preceded by four outriders wearing the imperial livery, and the whole of the cortege began to move in the following order : A squadron ol Guides, with the hand : three court carriages, preceded each bv thr-e outriders ; the royal carriage, pie ceded by outriders, and followed by a squadron of Cent-Gardes. Colonel Fleury rode at the right, and Col. New at the left, and a squadron of the Cuirassiers of the Imperial Guard closed tlie procession. Though rain was failling, the crowd was con- ; siderable along the line through which the King passed, and received the royal visiter with warm acclamations. The cortege soon alter entered the Palace do Carousal by the passage of the Pavilion de Rohan, and entered the Court of the Tuilerms by the triumphal arch. The drums were beating to arms, the troops present ted arms, and the acclamations became louder and louder as the King approached the Palace. The apartments of the Pavilion Marsan ai -0 those occupied bv the King during his stay at the Toil erics : and the aides-de-camp, orderly officers, and physicians occupy the next apart ments. SMOKING MEAT. A writer in the Reading Journal on this sub ject, says : "Smoking meat is rather ridiculed by some of our eastern Yankees, but if the thing is well done, we shall be encouraged, and continue to do so notwithstanding. "By some of our farmers it is often conducted with carelessness, selecting for that purpose a lot of old, half decayed stumps, wet and worm eaten in the bargain. The idea of smoking with wormy wood is not only unpleasant, but un wholesome, for by the burning of animal sub stance, empty retimatic oil is eliminated. "If the srnokt* is made of wet and half rotten wood, the wood is sour, the smoke bitter, and mostly steam. I have often heard people ask why it was that their meat drips so while smo king. The reason is plain. I'se proper mate rials (or making the tire, and there will be but little steam, and consequently little water to saturate the meat. "For this purpose select dry materials, and such as have not vet undergone any fermenta tion or decomposition, and the smoke thereof will he flavored after the peculiar woody fibre burned. Corn cobs produce, accordingto some, a "sweet smoke," containing little water, nmj will he found to answer the purpose admirably. "The method which, upon trial, I found to answer best, was to engage some sawdust with a sawyer, of live hickory, and this, before using, dry in the oven. "First kindle a fire with corn cobs, (but not so large as ordinarily) cover with dried sawdust, and lastly, throw upon this a few branches of Juniper. This contains an essential volatile oil. which will be found to mix with the smoke of the cob and hickory, and imparts a very palata ble and pleasant aroma to the meat. It beats gin.

FATAL RAILROAD ACCIDENT. —As the express train from Harrisburg to this city upon the Northern Central Railway was on its down ward trip on Saturday morning last, it ran over and caused the instantaneous death of an aged lady nnn,eu Rebecca Foreman, a resident of this city. The particulars of this deplorable affair were detailed to us as follows :—As tire train was running a short curve in the neighborhood of Freeland, some thirty-three miles from this city, the engineer discovered the lady about one hundred yards ahead, walking on the track, when lie immediately whistled down the breaks upon the train and reversed his engine, but all to no purpose as she was caught up by the cow catcher and so mangled a* to cause immediate death. The body was taken in charge by the officers of the train and conveyed to Parkton station, to which place C. C. Adreon, Esq., the superintendent of the road, repaired as soon as the affair was known here, with a view to hav ing an inquest field over the remains and taking charge of the same.— Baltimore Sun. Dec. 10th. Br. I:A OSTITI S. —Speaking of the prevailing high prices of breadstuff* and the immense sup plies lor exportation which the country is capa ble of affording, (he Buffalo Courier remarks : There is hardly any limit to our surplus of wheat and cm n, and if the demand abroad should carry 100,000,090 bushels, which is almost four times as much as we have ever expoited in one year, there would still he an abundant supply for home consumption. Strange as it may seem, that with a large surplus on hand, fully equal to supply the demand from abroad, prices should rule so higli: it is, nevertheless, in obedience to a law of trade, which makes a sudden impulse push the market values beyond a due limit, as well as to another law of trade which makes a derangement in the ordinary channels of sup ply, produce, for a time, all the consequences of an actual scarcity. TH AT ELOPEMENT CASE. — We staled on Wed nesday (savs the Troy Traveller) that a woman recently arrived at Chirago, from Kansas, with the dead body of her husband, which she was taking East lor burial, and that on the route she fell in with a young man, arid on arriving at

Chicago they went off' together, leaving the dead body of the husband in the depot. But it seems that the latter part of the statement was erroneous, for the woman forwarded the dead body on,and it arrived in this citv on Saturday, and she arrived with Iwr new husband on Mon day, and the funeral of the deceased husband was held at Waterford on Tuesday last.
