THE BEDFORD GAZETTE. Bedford, iTiarch 31, ISS6. G. W. Bowman, Editor and Proprietor- FCR PRESIDENT, ' jm,JAMES PHAiteL J j material change in the markets since !at vrcek. (X7"Tbe De„ jocra Ts have made a clear gain in y.fw Harr.psfure, since last sprirg, of upwards of SEVEN THOUSAND votes, and reduced the fu,ion majority in the House from 150 to almost nothing.— The Deinocracy Were never so active and determin ed as at present. rr?~W regret to learn, from the Washington L nion of .Monday of the death of Rev. Dr. BOND, an eminent Methodist divine, extensively known as the editor of the Christian Advocate. CC7"We rejoice to learn that Cnn.ereipeehas selrct ed a gentleman of fine capacity av Pa,tor oi the Al. F.. Church of Bedford, in the person of Rev. Mr. FISHER, last year located at Altoona. He bears tire reputation ol b-'ing a Christian in practice as well as in pr.ol-,sion, and is a gentleman ol courteous arid pleasing address, tt e extern! to him a cordial welcome, and trust he will be an instrument m the hands of the Lord in doing great good. THE LICENSE BILL. committee ot Conf'idiet* on trie LICENSE BILL Laving failed to agree, four members Lave been added to tlie committee: and, as three of them are lavorable to the House Bill, it is to bv hoped that this question will soon t>e settler'. T/~*VYe publish, on the first ol the Gazelle of to-day, a speech made bv Hon. (.'. A. Bockauew, LI-lure the late Democratic Stale Convention, which will be read with in terest and profit by ail into whose hands it may fill. It is pointed, forcible, eloquent, and hue ; and is altogether characteristic ol it- distinguish ed author, who is one of the most promising politicians of v. i.ich Pennsylvania can now boast. High honors are -n reserve for him.— Well ma v 11 is immediate constituency be proud of' such a Representative m the State Sen ate. Rev. *2oisa Chambers. \ r"ln th-- Gazette of Feb. 22, we published, with surpnze and mortification, a letter written hv the Rev. John Chambers, ol Philadelphia, jit which he proposes that the Pennsylvania Legislature forthwith pass a law " r.::Qnr.fxo " the Commissioners of each county to have e *v recteri, and placed at ail the cross-roads, a "TROUGH with a half tfoz"n* or more mugs "chained 1.-4, and the-- Troughs wct.L. and •• co.XtTAXTLV supplied with tt; ami Lacek, "that the thirsty whiskey Democrats may have " their fill." The Rr-v. geiilleman also inti mates in language too plaiu to be misund ?rstood, that ait who reiuse to bow before the k;o! ot Temperance Fanaticism, ore beneath the kou species—and that th- iU>us" ol Representa tives, in repealing the jug Law, were influ enced in the performance ol the act by the MO ney of the rum-seller?, a charge unsupported by the presentation of a single fact, i'o tin? letter we took exception, as being devoid of that dignity and candor which sboflld ever cha racterize tlie conduct oi those v. ho minister in hnlv things, and commented upon it us our judgment dictated to he right. In discharging this duty, we avoided saying any tiling harsh of Mr. Chambers, personally, and simply pointed out the grossabsuidilies and inconsistencies thus put upon record by a gentled an for whom we have always entertained an exulted regard, and who possesses gifts, both natural and acquired, which entitle him to rank with the m< .-t emi nent Divines in the land. A giant in intellect, and the admiration ofthe country at large as an orator, it gave us pain, and no pleasure, to re view Hit* unseemly letter alluded tn. We sent Mr. C. a copy of our paper containing the ar ticle; but he is not indebted tons f : the "mark ed" No. to which h'-alludes in a cry elaborate letter addressed to us in 1h Philadelphia Sun. a craze Know Nothing -beet, the columns oi which daily teems with articles which s-e:n to have been conccctvd and brought to light in the lowest resorts of drunkenness and debauchery! The letter will be found on the iiis: pag , and re-atlirms the uncharitable charges preferred in that of the 20th ult. The writer even seems to <!ory in tile rude manner in which Le sp of those who cannot ettvlor.se his political temper ance notions. We publish tin.- L tier for two reasons. First, because the writer requests us to do so—and, secondly, with the vievvoi -Low ing "how a strong man can sink th- mire" produced by L:.-> own tolly. Air. C. sivl-fthe jug Law a "restraining" law. True, it d -mesa mau tlie right to tak-- a gill in a bote! or eating house: but it invites him to lake as many quails, gallons, or barrels c? he ii able to pay for—and its practical workings has been realized in the establishing nt thousands of drinking saloons in the private dwelling and in the chambers of taverns throughout the state, in whicli many ofthe most violent temperance demagogues u! the pres-nt day take a willing hind ! All public m n know this b> he true, consequently the followers of the jug law are those who have defiled themselves by -m!traring the rum power. For mr part we can look with much more compas-don upon the poor in vhnate who "blasphemes and breaks the sab bath," being unable > vent-< "spell whiskey f than we can upon "high toned gentlemen" who can sji'dl all things, spout temperance for political gull-traps, drink rum by the quart in secret, are seldom seen in church, and never in a priifer meeting. Tlie drunkard clothed in purple and fine linen, is a far more disgraceful oiijeci than the one decora led in rags and not sufficiently educated to spell whiskey ! Such demand our deepest <y mpathu s. The Democracy will never follow tin-lea l of those who stand as the advocates ol the Jug Law, and, with this motto inscribed irion our Banner, we will go forward conquering and to ronquer. in which we will have the aid of al! rational temperance men. ihe Jug law allows m.-n "to make turn, sell rum, get on :;k on run . and beggar themselves and families by the use of rum," and yet even mir.iste: - have the effrontery to baptize it -is "r; straining" in i's eff.-nS. Tlie only thing it has donejor can do, is to reduce the value of property erected for tavern purpo ses. It is a matter of deep regret that ministers should be "proud of such comj any."' In reply to Mr. f V interrogatory as to when and wh< re the temperance [Jug-Law] n en have set the law at d fiance, we answ-r, in trying ti > for re ujxtn ti. people prohii ition tn defiance <>f their expressed will al toe ballot box, and in writing incendiary episties such as we are now speaking of. well calculated to arouse the v. est passions ofthe human beast ! A temperance life of 45- years, all the days of our exigence, should, we think, entitle us to the appellation ' fa T-. inp'ranceinan. Du!, whilst we repudiate all kind? of liquor, as a bev-rage,j we have neither right, law, nor r ason, lor at- j tempting to compel Freemen to abandon their jOvvti judgment for ours—rather let them be fully persuaded in iheir own mind. We have j i not courted the huzzas of the Liquor League,] ■ and know of no such organization."" We abhor : intemperance under any lorn:, and would re-. ijoice with joy unspeakable, if every man in the. land would voluntarily and conscientiously abandon the use ol intoxicating drinks. As I you cannot ftree a mart to become a Christian, the reck which is the sure foundation of every j thing that is pure and lovely, neither can you: drive him to support the cause of Temperance I j : Mr. C. could not have intentionally designed j to misrepresent us by the intimation that we j entertain "an exalted opinion of liquor drink- [ Ing," and vet he uttered the sentiment without producing a siugie fact to sustain the uuaiud charge. Mc. C. snvs he was horn a Jackson Democrat. ; and hopes to die one, which is ail very well— i but it won't do to sav that the old hero, if liv ing, would endorse him in his present course— j for, although (ioi. Jackson was a temperance ; man in the fullest sense of the term, y t he kepf : liquors in his house, and put them on his table,: at dinner parties, allowing his guests to exercise . their own judgment. This is evident Iroin the. 'fact that Mr. ("s sons were even offered wine j at the white house ! If Temperance advocates i would follow the example ot Jackson—"hies- j and not curse—if they would seek the good j will of the erring instead ot inviting their con tempt —how much better would it be for the : ' cause of both temperance and religion? Re- ; proach i! ver reformed any man. Meekness, love, and charity, should he the , watchwords of Christians, a fact beautifully , po'tiaved in Romans 14, troni the 11th to the j !Bth verse, inclu-ive. 10. But wltv dost thou judge thy brother? or j why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we ' shall al! stand before the judgment <eat of Christ. 11. For it is w iiten, ,7.v I live snith the Lord, every Lime shall bow to rne, and every tongue j ; shall confess to God. 12. So then every one of us shall give an j 'account of himself to God. I 13. Let us not therefore judge one another a- j ny mori . but judge this rather, that no man put j , a stumbling block, or an occasion to fall in Ins \ ; brothers way. If Christian teachers ofthe present day had a ] ! little of the faith that stimulated Eiias, who I : "prayed earnestly that it might not rain: and it ! I rained not on the earth for the space of three years and six months; and he prayed again and j j the Heaven gave lain, and the earth brought forth her fruits," we would not he shocked with the degrading systems empl >yed by carnally minded men to expel from the land evils that j can only be corrected by a fervent appeal to the A! mighty. Finally, to "tell nor readers u hat we think" —basing our r marks upon the obligations rest- 1 ing upon us as "a member of a Chi istiai: Church"—we have no hesitation in asserting ; , that the present Legislature are under positive instructions from the people to repeal the Jug • Law and pass- a fair License Bill—that minis ters should affectionately warn their hearers a gainst the use of intoxicating drinks in every sermon they preach—that they should refrain j from evil speaking—and that they should ever] earnestly ptav that we may be delivered from i the scourge of anv enactment "requiring the | Commissionersd each county to keep Troughs i at al! the cross roads, filled with rum," to indue men, and boys, too, to become drunkatds.
