The Bedfortl Gazette. LOCAL AND PERSONAL. On Saturday Last, the good people of the rural districts, the sturdy farmers of Bedford county, came into town in large numbers for the purpose of enjoying themselves after the hard 'obor of the harvest season. Our town wascon iderablv enlivened by their visit, the rattle and rrgor of their carriages and wagons, remind us forcibly of the "noise and confusion" of r crowded city thoroughfare. The rosy-cheek j ] aS £ies of the country also graced the occasion <vith their presence, and gave life and beauty to the scene. __lt does one's heart good to see the honest, bird-working husbandman, with his plain exte •irr, with the stamp of his heart upon his very -arments, with no guile on his lip, no falsehood i his smile, after having for weeks looked dai ly and hour I v upon the bandy-legged, puffVd-up aristocrats of dandyism. When we see the healthv, heaity, happy yeomanry of the coun t-v and contrast their mode of living with that l the pent-up city, we cannot resist the excla mation: — How ble-t the Farmer's simple life, How pure the joy it yields, far from the towtt.'s tempestuous strife, Free mid the scented fields!" loons the distinguished arrivals at the Bed t ;d Springs, during the last week, we notice Unos Kendall, Gen. Jackson's renowned Post Master General. We hopp the old veteran may ; be rejuvenated during his slay, and that his life which has been devoted to the best interests of his country, may be prolonged for years to j come. V. P' Cropper, Esq., of the Philadelphia; Pennsylvania!!, paid our town a visit during : the earl v part of the present we-'k. Mr. Crop- P-r is a good fellow, a "gentleman and a schol ar." Judging from his weight and height, as well as the proverbial proportions of his senior, Col. Rice, there must be editors of "considera '|e parts" about the Ptnnsylvuniun office.— : IVe commend Mr. Propper to our brethren ofthe < press, who may fall in with him, as a gentle nan with whom they will find pleasure in asso ciating. We observe bv the Ebehshurg Sentinel, that ' '!;•* very Rev. Father Hayden of this place, will deliver a lecture, at Jefferson, on the occasion I' i he Fair at that place. The Sentinel savs i :!,at Father Havden has long enjoyed the repu. j tation ofbeing one of the most eloquent men in Western Pennsylvania. THE BLU'K REPUBLICAN Conferees for ' •bis Senatorial district, met at the Washington , I Hotel in this place, on Tuesday last, and after J ishort and unparlainentarv session, a ballot hav- j i ng been taken in which the Bedford Conferees vjte.l and the rest didn't, adjourned until Wed- I n"slay, when Win. 11. Koontz, of Somerset, was ' i -flared the nominee. J. Sevveli Stewart, of \ Huntingdon, was presented to the Conference, I 'v the delegates from that county, and his de ; vat evidently did not contribute much to their j ; ! will towards his successful opponent. UP call the attention nf our readers to the rlisernent of Nicholas Lyons, Esq., offering eJ ' r - lie a large body of valuable real estate, in I ■ * v: township.
