Positions !' P. S. Siuatcrs. SKNATOH. JONES, oi Tennessee, mailt* an able speech in the U. S. Senate, on the 9th instant, defining his political position in the present cam- ! paign. He levievved the condition and pros pects oj the different patties, and concluded that as a patriot and friend of his country, which he j loved better than partv, there was no place left j for him to go hut to the support of Buchanan \ and Breckinridge. One of his old friends hav- ■ ing reminded him "that new converts to a par ty were generally placed at the foot of it," In- | replied that "he was not governed by a paltry \ desire for office, as some others were, and that the step he had taken might he into his political I grave, ami if so, all he asked was, that he might ; he buried beneath the folds oi that glorious Hag ; of the Union, and that it might be written on I his tombstone that lie had died in defence oi , it." Thus fur, the following old-line \Y hig Sena- j tors have spoken out : Senators PRATT and PUAP.IE of Mary laud, for ; the Union, Buchanan and Breckinridge. Senator TOOMBS, of Georgia, ditto BKA.IAM IN of Louisiana, ditto " JUNKS of Tennessee, ditto " CLAVU.V of Delaware, cannot and will I not support Fillmore or Fremont. British Hatred of Democracy. Our neighbours '-over the water" take a deep interest in the success of the Black Republican party, and urge the election of Fremont with j ardor. According to them, the success of that! gentleman would greatly benefit and gratiiy the citizens of Great Britain. We have no doubt that such v. ouid be the case, and that (fit* Aboli tionists of the .North would find powerful allies , in the white slave diivers o! Manchester and j Loudon, Birmingham ami Sheffield. But wol the people of tlie United States elect a Presi dent to gratify a nation which set a price upon the head of Washington and his compatriots? Will thev obey the dictation of the organs of British tyranny, and crush the Democracy of the New World. The London Chronicle, a pa per high in the confidence of the British Gov ernment, holds tile following language in refer- \ once to our Presidential struggle : "We should be sorry to see Mr. Buchanan ; elected, because 1m is in favor ot preserving the obnoxious institutions as thev exist, A M) THE UNITY GFTHE STATES." There is no safe ty for European monarchial governments, if the progressive spirit of the Democracy of the f ni ted States is allowed to succeed.

AND TUKN ON THIS.—"A door way to the Senate Chamber, Senator Foote, a little old j man, bald head and with spectacles, is suddenly • met by the rptfian Fremont, knocked down, ■ brought to his knees, his glasses jammed into I his eyes, and the blood flowing." Horrible, ain't it ?— Cleveland Plnindeala DEATH F::OM LOCK* JAU. —On Friday last, Thos. Silvers, of Germantown, died of lock jaw, superinduced bv a wound lie had received j seven days previously iiom a nail running in j his foot near the toes. It was not a very se- | vere wound, and it had apparently healed up, j when symptoms of the dreadful disease appear- ; mi, which of course baffled all the efforts ol man to remove. He was a man of family, and was mnch thought of in his neighborhood as a useful j citizen. One of the best remedies for injuries in the 1 feet by rusty nails, is the application of slices of raw beet, taken directly from the earth, renew- \ eit every fifteen minutes. We have heard of bad accidents of this kind being completely cured by this application. BAHALLEL. —To 1851, says the Pittsburg Post, John 0. Fremont beat Senator Foote at j the door of the Senate chamber. He struck hrm on the head, and since then Senator Foote's ' brain has so far softened thut he lias become a know-nothing. What shall be done for the "ruffian" Fremont ? What punishment is se vere enough for him ? He has never even j been fined yet. Mr. Foote was struck by Fre mont for words spoken in debate ; uas assailed by Fremont when off his juani. Ought not Fremont to be punished ? Yet the same people I who bawl out their vengeance against Brooks ' make Fremont their idol 1 Pure and L nadulterated Ij/tit le Republican ism.— Ibe True American, a black-republican organ in Erie counlv, Pennsylvania, in com- j menting upon a speech delivered at a democrat ic meeting, says : "This twaddle about th*'f/uon' and its > i <preservation is too >il!v and sickening for any good effect. M c think that the■ liberty of n sin- \ <slc slave is worth more Ihun ALL THE UNIONS j (ion's R\IVEI:>E CAN HOLD!" In the above atrocious sentiment we have a ; beautiful illustration of the preponderating ne- j gro-w orshipping feature of black republican- I ism. In the opinion of the demagogues, fanat ics, and madmen who have nominated Mr. Fre- I rnont for the presidency one negro is of tnore consequence than the safety and perpetuity of" our glorious Union.

GREAT MEETING IX BEDFORD On SATURDAY. Aug. 10. A meeting was determined upon late on Wednes day evening. The Gazette announced it next triom ; ing, and the Dernociacy stopped their ploughs-:—the 1 anvil ceased its music, and the people gathered in.— They don't need any runners, nor hand-hills, nor any j other kind of manoeuvring to get up a meeting.— ! The announcement matle, and the people do the bal ance. The masses are moving as if the spirit of the , times were volcanoes beneath them. The black, cloud of Abolition.sin is even now scattering. The ' I spectre of Know Xotbingism is horrified and vanish i ins. At •'! o'clock a large delegation came- in from Na i pier and Juniata, headed by a band of rnu-ic and fly ing colors. The people IIOITJ all directions came pouring in, till the streets, pavements and aiieys were filled with live democrats. Hundreds called j upon Mr BCCUANAN, who vvas stopping at the Bed ford Hotel. Men, women and children rushed to see him. It is no strange tiling to see Mr. BUCHANAN here. Trie people of this county see him almost ev ery Spring Season. He is not only our choice now, i but our cherished choice, lie is now a candidate for the highest otfice in the world, and with brighter 1 prospects of success than any candidate that has ever proceed him, except, probably, Washington , yet he is the same plain, unvarnished Mr. Buchanan that we have always seen. When you see him, yoo like i him best. i Alter many gratulafions and greetings, the people, ' in mass, moved up to the Court House, which, stretched to its utmost capacity, would not hold j j them all ! Col. SAML. YV. BLACK was there, and it was not long tili we all knew it ; lor his thundering was heard. The eagle was in the skies, and we sat '■ beneath the branches of the foliage. His argument 1 | constitutional and historical, as well as upon the signs of the times, together with his thrilling p-als j of eloquence peculiar to himself, made it the best i ! speech, we will venture to say, that has been made since the campaign opened. His reply to the Abo ! lition Ford, of Ohio, was the axe laid to the root of , the tree. Gov. Ford told us, in bis speech, that he i j had been to Mexico. Col. BLACK did not tell us he ; ! had been there; but we all knew it. i When the Col. spoke of what the Koeth and the ! ! South did there, we don't exaggerate when we say i that we saw tears shed by some biave spirits in the j audience, who had been there too. The Ladies who j were there in gieat numbers from Bedford, and from the Springs, did not fail to let the hero and orator I know bow he was appreciated. He was followed by Geo. H. BKEWSR, Esq. of Chambersburg, in a mas terly and eloquent speech. This over, and every body having found their lungs to be good ones, the meeting dispersed. We say to every county in the State, do as we are doing and the majority tor Liu- j chatian and Creckenridge will be lity thousand. _ ___ Mr. Jordan, in reply to a request that lie would i furnish the names of the Democrats who demanded' the removal of Wm. McMullin from the Telegraph , Office because u he teas a Mechanic," says "it is not j necessary to give the names." Reason, because the fabrication was manufactured out of the whole cloth, and, consequently, if is not convenient to give names. CC7" It was generous in the iv. N. County Commit tee to announce that they were in "error" in char ging Mr. Niccxfernus with being an applicant for Clerk to the FOOT House, after one of the Director.-, their political friend, bad branded the statement'as a premeditated falsehood, destitute of any foundation. K7"The Philadelphia News occupies about six, columns to prove that Mr. Buchanan advocated the j reduction of the wages of labor to ten cents a day when if there was any truth in the charge, it would only be necessary" to quote the language as u-ed by Mr. B. himself. The iVrwi asks, "V\ hat did Mr. Buchanan mean when he said ' reduce the nominal to the real standard of prices throughout the world?'" We will tell the gentleman. He meant that a Bank note should be made equal to its face 111 gold or silver, which is the only standard, acknowl edged throughout the world. He meant this and nothing else—and out of this remark, intended to protect the laboring man against the swindling ope rations of swindling Banks, was the infamous ten cent slander manufactured. We have now in our possession a five dollar note on the Bank ol Circle ville, for which we gave the value ot s•"> in gold. A lew davs after we received it the Bank broke, and, having kept it two years, it is only now worth about $2. Had this nominal been reduced to the real stan dard, the people would not have been thus defrauded in open day-light. It was expressly to meet case like this that induced Mr. 15. to say, "reduce the nominal To the real standard of prices throughout the world,and you cover the country with blessings and benefits." Conferee meeting. rT7°*The conferees for Bedford, Fulton, and ( am bria. met at the Bedford Hotel on last Monday even ing, and, after organizing, and balloting severa 1 times, unanimously nominated Col. \\ . C. Reamrk of Fulton, and ('apt. <!. Nrasov Sarin, oi Cambria for the Assembly. r Our ticket is now full, and is composed of nr.rn £ -telling worth and integrity from the top to the b^* s torn. That it will meet the cordial support ot T./ 1 Freemen of Bedford county we have no doubt. " c Ve A man by the name of Kra.itus King, and oix, by the name of James Jlf. Tut/lor, both ol Nap.ty Township, arknotaledge that they signed a pap*] published in the Bedford Gazette, renouncing Nothingism. The first, however, says that he w;*j so beastly drank as not to know what he was doii.tj and the other declares /untie//' to be little less tha4 an id/ot, scarcely knowing any thing in the paper. He savs he was told the Americans were in iavor of making the "negroes jree,"' and lunre his renuncia tion— but itoir he k notes this to be false, and he re nounces back again ! Not only so, he is "font'inced that a large sum of money has been sent from Wash ington to buy up votes!" lie also discusses the Kansas question, Mr. Buchanan's speech on the In dependnt Treasury, and proclaims himself the hearty friend and co-worker of Fr. Jordan iu the cause of Americanism. May the three long flourish to en lighten the people. A\ OtTßAfse.'* this head, Fr. Jordan K Co. make dread ful charges against the Post Office Department in general, and Col. Bkim.i.e in particular, because their organ did not go to Ailtim Bar.k on Saturday of last week. They charge Col. Beegle, the P. M. at St. Clairsville, with having kept them back intentional ly, whilst the admittedX acts are that the papers were not sent to the P. O. in Bedford until Friday, and, as a matter oi course, (the mail being a tri-weekly) could not go over until the follow ing Monday. Tins is the way the "OUTRAGES" in Kansas are manu factured. Will honest men submit to be thus trilled with ? CC7"Ai'ter a great flouri-h of Hand bills. Lieut. Gov. For.u, of Ohio, made a speech in t'he Court House in Bedford on Thursday evening of last week, which is represented hv competent judges as being both coarse and vulgar, destitute of either ar gument or w it. The only sensible thing he said was that all the issues which divided the Whig and Dem ocratic Parties had been setlled by the people in fa vor of the Democracy, a fact well known even to School boy#. If, then, the Democratic Party have always been right, why should any rational man continue to oppose it? But few people attended from the rout/hy, and the affair pas-ed otl as a silly proceeding. The speech had but one ellect. and that to add to the disgust which generally pervades our community on the subject of Abolitionism. Fremont a lailiotic! [L7"We copy the following paragraphs from the Philadelphia JWw.v of a late date, the leading organ of Mr. Fii.lmokf. in Pennsylvania, and formerly the old Wliig organ ol Philadelphia. So it appears that the Know Nothings in Bedford who had but a single, idea last year, and that the prostration oi' Catholi cism. now call upon the people to elect n Catholic to the Presidency ol the United States! liven many of the K. N. I'rrnr/ins who were so crazy about crush ing out the Catholics last year, have not a word to utter against them now. Their present energies are devoted to the humane cause of placing a negro upon an equality with a white man! But hear what the lending champion of Fillr. ore says: Still Tiiey Come!— One hundred and sev enteen members ol the AFlhodist Churches in Pittsburg, who wn e Republicans, and in ge, a oi Fremont lor the Presidency, have, sit. -o all statement of Alderman Fulmer, air.em"'> "Bis ; their own Church, harked as it is by j tlioritv, that Fremont is a Roman Catholic—f'*| which is not satisfactorily disputed, when it uJ could be easily done if tie were not, and would j he—declared their determination not to support him.

TO Ti*a: VI HS3.SC. I Gen. Bowman :By the (iuzettc of the loth iust. I see my name (among others) announced as a mem ber of the committee,forColeratn Township, ot that infamous Order, called Know Nothings. Now , in order to set myself l ight before the people, 1 deem it my duty to make a plain statement. And, first—l must say that I never considered my sell a member ol any such order or Faction—neither have 1, on any occasion, been present at any of lheir meetings or I : lodges or whatever they rnay see fit To call them. I i consider the whole thing u, subversive of American j principles, and degrading to the American name! i I'he reason why the Know Nothings have used my j name as one o| their secret committee is about this, j In the year 1 H?>/> a prominent (arid as I supposed an | officio!) member of the order questioned me fre ; quently on the subject of Know Nothingism. At last 1 asked him to explain the principles of the order, when he remarked that if 1 would go with him he would show me all about it—so we walked out by ourselves. He a-ked me it 1 could keep secrets ' 1 said 1 could, lie then took from his pocket a small j book, bill said when thev initialed members they u j sed a lit/ile. I told him 1 wanted no Bible—o he at l tempted to read from the Book something, but it ; was printed, a- near as I can recollect, about one thiid or perhaps one-half, IN FIGURES, instead ol letter-, and he w as unable to read or even explain it. 1 laughed heartily at him for attempting to impose upon me such disgraceful mummery for American principles, and expressed surprize that any man of I -ound mind or judgment could he entiapped by such I inlamoiis delusion. If thi.- is considered as joining : Know Nothingism, I hereby publicly abandon, now and forever, any such wicked political order, which ; is a mere screen to hide the odious and lepulsive de '"yriities of Republican Abolitionism.

Of/"The following highly important extracts are j from the San Francisco Herald, and were written i immediately on the receipt of Mr. Buchanan's nom ination by the Cincinnati Convention. The Herald has always heretofore been neutral in jiolilirs, hut it i cannot remain neutral iu a content like this: From the Sun Francisco Daily Herald, July 1 "At a time like this when accumulated ('angers i menace the permanence of our glorious Union, when treasonous fanaticism is rampant and Abolitionism rear- its head defiantly,—and strange doctrines sub ; versive of constitutional rights and destructive of constitutional guarantees are boldly proomlged by • tiaitors to the Stare, it does infuse hope and confi dence that all patriotism is not smothered in the breast of the nation when a great party which lias heretofore been pre-eminently the party of progres-, chooses the exponent of its principles a man un i tainted by sectionalism, irreproachable in character, and vr ho has been throughout his whole career an unwavering advocate for preserving the integrity of the Constitution. He is liie cotemporury, the friend, 1 , the co-laborer of the sags who have passed away— of Lynn. Wright, Clay. Cplhoun and Webster: —and among those giants of a foimer day he was honored and esteemed. His brilliant statesmanship had eai ned for him the warm admiration of the whole peo ple. Of all men in the United States. he is best lif ted, by his antecedents, by his geriius, hv his purity oi character, by the splendor of his state-man-like attainments, and bv his known loyalty and fidelity to the Union, to command, at a crisis like the pre-- ent, the confidence and the hearts of the people. He is, besides, the trusted standard-bearer of a party which is now confessedly Uie■co-uservati ve party of ■ -Itr* ivrutitry. There is, indeed-, tiojofher party in the Union. The other organizations do not deserve the name. We have no doubt that nine-Tenths of the old Clay Whig-will vote for James Buchanan. In this conte-t we cannot remain neutral. In a i battle between Whigs and Demoimat- we have never taken sides. But between fb-mocracy and the wretched factions which endeavor to abolish the Constitution of the United States and threaten the . integrity of the Union, we cannot hesitate to choose, i More than this: as American citizens we cannot re ; main idle spectators of such a fight. Heart and soul, then, we pledge ourselves to The support of James I Buchanan for the Presidency of the United Slates."' Front the same paper, July 19. "The true is-ue is not as to the Democratic, or Whig, or Know Nothing doctrines, but it is really an issue of alternatives—Democracy or Disunion, ft is impo-sibie to view aright the plan of the cam paign and the state of parties, and riot see that, if • the Free-Soil party -ucceed, carrying as they will the doctrine of sectional inequality and discrimina tion—the doctrine that Congre-s can legislate on the I vexed subject ol slavery —that sixteen States can legislate for fourteen or fifteen—that the power of all j shall be exerted against the interests of neatly half; in that event the I'nifcn will be dis-nlved as soon a ' it is understood that this is the declared national policy, and the election of the sectional candidates will i><: considered the most authentic enunciation of this purpose. lJ - We have said that the issue was between Free- filism and Democracy.

What lie j ever did for California, when acting in a political I capacity, as her representative, we do not know; nor |do we know—as a gentleman said yesterday—of any | cltijks he has on California, —except the Mariposa and the Alcatraz. Certainly, even the most furious partisanship could scarcely compare his qualifications for the Presidency with those of so ripe and eminent a statesman as Jas. Buchanan. An honest, calm, cool intellect— a large national heart—an experienced, practical statesmanship, an acquaintance with our whole poli cy, foreign and domestic, with the genius and char acter of our people, and with the men all over The nation who can best aid in its administration; a ra tional love of his own country and her institutions; a knowledge ami reverence of her Constitution, and the firmness which will enable him to do his duty and see that the laws are faithfully executed—these are the prime requirement-of the time and for the place. At this time something more is needed at the helm of affairs; and that is a general confidence in the government. It is much better for the public good that the President should be respected py all, than that, with many enthusiastic and devoted friends and admirers, lie should also be the object ei ther of wide-spread ditru-t or of many enmities which are the usual accompaniments of forced na tures. And the culm, even virtuous Course of Mr. Buchanan. ha- inspired his countrymen with sncli I confidence m his purity and wisdom, that his admin- I isTration promises a reign ol order, peace and good will at home and ahioad.

Wal-| ker, in responding to an invitation to attend and j aldress a Democratic mass meeting, states the issues in the pending contest with a degree of conciseness and clearness that we have rarely seen. Here is an extract from Ins letter ; "Relieving that the Democratic party is the only national party now in existence, and that upon its success in the present contest depends the preservation of the rights of the South, if not, indeed, the vert/ existence of the govern ment itself, 1 teel it rny duty to forego all old prejudices, I irget firmer differences, and give inv earnest support to the nominees ol the Ciu- | cinnati Convention. "it I were asked to name (he fundamental principles which lie at ihe basis ol our govern ment, and on which our free institutions have been - built, as a house upon its foundations, I should answer, the equality of Ihe States trhich i compose the Fnion, and the equality nf the cif-\ iz '/is vho constitute the States. The first of j these principles is denied and assailed bv the Black Republicans : the second, if not openly controverted, is at least insidiously attacked, bv tiie Know-Nothings. The errors of these parties, then, (if the terms be not too mild,) are errors of fundamental and ! vital principles, menacing, in the one instance,! the civil privileges and the religious liberty of j the private citizen ; and in the other, the gov- j ereign rights ol the States and the existence of i the Union. The Democratic party alone, of j all the organizations now in the Held, maintains I and defends both of these essential principles, j and thus, in my humble judgment, entitles itself j : to the cordial support and co-operation ol all na- ! tional men of every section and party. Very respectfully, vour obed't serv't. R. VV. WALKER, j From the Philadelphia Evening Journal THE VALUE OF THE INION |\ \ MLUUAL ASPLIT.

At e same period there were not less than $80,000,000 u vested in the bus.ne-- ot cotton tr annlacture.clii-py in New England. '1 his capital maintained luo,i o operatives, male and female, wl.ovy joint annual 1 wage- were $17,000,000, and the product oi \vL-e labor wa- worth, at a low estimate, $70,000,1 Oil. There w ere fie-ide- 23,000 or 30,000 persons in the i United States who w ere employed amWliriciiei! ; receiving, selling, and shipping the above amount of domestic cotton fabrics. In addition to the cou-r --wi-e navigation beiore mentioned, there were hi c. . 000 tons ot the mercantile marine of the country, owned chiefly at the North ; occupied in carry ; - American cotton to Europe. In !819-'3O the vuiue ol cotton fabrics made in our lactone- and coti-um ed in the State- was $.77,134,700. During the same period the value of the total amount ot raw Ameri can cotton consumed in our manufactures wa- sfi.. ; 3 10.800 ; while the whole amount of cotton labrir consumed in the country—foreign and rioiiie-'u;— exceeded m value S- J.OllO.OOO—three-fourth- o; the entire product being the creation of domestic indus try. Again, Ihe domestic cotton maiiuh c'urer:- ave. tint only exceeded, in the proportion of Th'-ir ii frea-r, the augmentation of the gio-s popntat . of tri-c..: - try, as well as that of any other prominent att.cie o mariufuctiire, but that increase, since 1-so, in it-re i iation tu ex[ioitatioii, surpasses in value die wi., • ii ciease of all o:ber American maunfactutes cor: ' • - i ed. .Moieover, the cotton crop of the States ip:> - I ' quite seven-tenths ot'all the cotton product J ti.-r I world; while the portion yeaily expuite; is at- I eight-tenths of the total quantity sent to n- I i from all regions o: the Globe. Since -21, •• i ei ports of cotton have multiplied nine-fold, wl. e I i import- ol foreign cotton goods have liar y r j i than doubled. Hence cotton is rapidly ranceilii.g I j one big item in the account of interr.atitmal trade .u I . which the ballaitce ba- been against u>. We may j ! add lurther, hv way of comment be're, that mere 1 j than $.78,000,000 of bullion and specie, over a: ! \ i above what has been aetualfy exported, would have I , , been annually needed, since 1821, fur shipn.ei.t j abroad, to square exchanges with Europe, ha .it i.i - ' i been tor the exportation thither of our raw cot'or-. j "i j The aggregate of our exportation® ol raw coltou ha-, , since 1803, increased upwards of twenty-eight : !in quantity, and more than nine hundred pet cent ■ ! value. It is likewise noticeable that the gin-- vi-u : t ; o! our importations ol foreign merchandize ha- ■ | dined relatively to the increasing exportation j { i American raw cotton. But cotton i- hut one ot t. ■ j staples ol the South.

Another notable 'act i-. fl the expoits of domestic cotton in ! 8-0, eXfe>-i.- ■ tho-e of tobacco, and the whole poductsot fl ture, the forest and the sea added together. 9 have shown that the people ot the Noith are ■ stii[>per-, the insurers and the-tilers ot. a- r. ■ the speculators in cotton, and, of course, the reaper- H ot the great bulk of the profit upon the article—.. ■ planter realizing the very smallest portion oi • jfl j nett proceeds. Let us s-e now where, in 1 : try, the cotton of the South is manufacture-j- ' ■ cloth and the like. The gro-s value °" r 9 rriaiHiiiictures in 1830, was $C1.809. 1 B whole amount, Connecticut, Maine, M is-ach: - S j New Hampshire, New Jersey.
