THE PEOPLE BLACK REPUBLICAN HYROC RAC Y AN I) KNO\V N(>T HING THUGGERY REBUKED::! Bedford Couutv Raisins Iter Voice for the THREE P'S, PURER, PENNSYLVANIA AND PEACE!!!! On Monday evening last, the noble Democ racy of Bedford county, met in Mass Meeting at the Court House, literally crowding the court-room with their numbers. A larger, more intelligent, more enthusiastic assemblage, it has never Been our good fortune to witness within the confines of our county, ll was a glorious out-pouring ot the gallant men who last Fall gave James Buchanan a triumphant majority over the combined factions of Know Nothing ism and' Black Republicanism. It showed plain ly that the spirit which animated the honest yeomanry of Bedford county, during the fierce contest of 1856, still nerves their hearts and impels them to action. It showed that the broad, bright flag of Democracy which our conservative citizens have borne in triumph through many a well-fought battle, is still the chosen banner of true patriots, under which they intend to march to victory and glory. The great feature of the meeting was the ad dress of Gen IG. U . Bowman. For upwards ol two hours the Gen'l field his large audience enchained with his eloquence—advocating the principles of the Democratic party with a pow er of argumentation that was irresistable. and drawing a picture of the depravity and profli gacy of the Opposition to the Democracy, that was startling and loathsome to contemplate.— He laid bare the hidden machinery and secret appliances—the clandestine plottings and mid night trickery—with which the reckless and unscrupulous politicians of the Black Republi can and Know Nothing parties, are working upon unsuspecting Democrats, for the purpose of getting their votes. He showed .how Know Nothiug were made, saying that a dozen or more men were huddled together into the vault of the Beiflord County Commissioner's OtSce, and at the risk ot the destruction of the public rec ords kept there, were sworn into the fellowship of the Secret Order ! His speech abounded in happy iiiti at the ridiculous doctrines of the Opposition, and the oath-bound minions of Sam and the Negro-Smitten followers of Sambo shrank back, abashed and ashamed, at the with ering' rebuke received at his bands. He was frequently interrupted with the loud and enthu siastic pjaudits of his hearers, and sat down a mid a perfect storm of cheers. The rpeeting was also ably addressed bv Mai. S. H. Tate and O. E. Shannon, Esq., and alter the latter gentleman had concluded, it adjourn ed with three hearty cheers for the State Ticket, and three more, long and loud, for the County Ticket, ttr meet'again at th-* <9me plac on ThursdaJ^eVenutg.* Q JlemQ<V4Uc Siate convention uHowa, ominate#Kßfcr , Governor ifeojamin S. Samuels, .nd lor lieutenant governor Geoige Gillaspie. 3".** yd fis " VHLTIOT. VVellj "the mouutain has labored and | brought forth"—not the " ridiculous mouse" ' we read of—but an inflated political bull-frog ! puf*ed up with the wind of his own arrogance i and egotism, and able to croak lor two mortal hours or. the dead, abstract, settled question of "Slavery." David Wilmot, the great Ajax Telemon, the Jupiter Tonans, of Abolitionism | in Pennsylvania, paid his promised visit to Bed | ford onTuesday last and spoke to quite a respect able audience in front of the Court House on the eveniog of the same day. The people as sembled to h~ar him had met in the Court Room, but not crowding it so densely as the Demo cratic Meeting theevemng previous, the "artful dodger" who acted as "chief cook and plate cleaner" in the organization of the meeting, deemed it necessary in order to hide the paucity i of his Black Republican sympathisers, to trans fer the audience in front of the Court House.— | He (the "dodger" ) said that he had got him- j self into a "quan-da-ry" (in which we agreed j with him entirely) and that, therefore, he) would trouble the meeting to help him out bv asking them to go out themselves where thev could scatter about and spread over the Public Square adlibitum. After every body had rub bed his eyes the twentieth timetosee whether the "animal" would not soon Ire exhibited, the "dodger" introduced to the meeting, the "Hon. David Wilmot," for whom he bespoke are-! spectftil hearing. Well, the huge caicass of j David f loomed up—his well rounded paunch protruded and every eye rested with admirrtion upon the rotundity of his "Coi poration"—but | no cheer greeted him a3 he rose, no shout went ; up for him such as should welcome the appear- I ance of a man beloved by his fellows—all was still and motionless—the crowd even seemed to shrink back—for they felt that they were com ing in contact with a man who is notorious as ; a blasphemer, a political mountebank and a trif ler with the prejudices and passions of the hu man heart. David sp >k' fir nearlv two hours, but his remaks "fell dead from his lips, eliciting! no applause whatever save when he made some j obscene allusion totally unworthy the dignity of a man asking the suffrages of the people for the high office to which he aspires. The staple of j his entire address abolitionism. A friend informs us that he mentioned the word "Slave ry," 250 times, the word "Kansas," 50 times, the personal pronoun, 200 times, the word j "dirt" 20 times. The tact is if these words were subtracted from his speech there would be a neit balance of— empty twaddle —Among oth er things David said that he had been misreprr. i sented, that he was called an abolitionist which j he was not. A short time after he had said ! this, he proclaimed that "the interests of slavery and freedom have come in direct con tact, and one or the other must give way!"— Now, what did he mean by this save and ex cept that slavery mus-t be extendi.:!, or abolish ed, and therefore, as he pretends to be anti-slave- i ry in his seoi musi tie not, ot necessity, I rank with those who are in favor of its aboli tion7 V\ e submit this question for the solution j of hi: pimps and "second fiddles" who will, j doubtless go about from place to place, and try to make unsuspecting people believe that he is no abolitionist. David also wanted the Demo cratic party to point their finger to any act, or expression of opinion, of his, that was wrong. Well, inasmuch as lie is so anxious to have his faults pointed out, we will accommodate him and charge—That David Wilmot is an agita tor ola dead and buried issue—that he is trying the raise the slavery question which the people of the Union disposed of last Fall, and that iie is doing so in order to excite the poople so that he can obtain their votes. That in doing this he is guilty of the most shameful charlatanism that ever dragged manhood down from its true dig nity. That he is reckless of the real interests of the Commonwealth, and that it has been char ged upon him and he has never denied it. that he said he was "determined to arouse the people to tiie importance of the slavery issue" ami that it he tailed in this, he''would join the party that would send the country to h-—II the quick est !" David repeated the stale stories of the N. V. Tribune concerning "Bleeding Kansas" and talked about the ''.Missouri Border Ruffians" making incursions into the Territory. He for got, however, to tell us how many wooden nut meg pedlars, from Massachusetts, shouldered Sharp's rifles and invaded the same country and for similar purposes as those of their Ruffians." When he came to the subject of "American, ism ' he went sneaking around it for about a minute and a half, and then said he had not time to discuss it. lie then sat down, as he arose, -without creating any enthusaism among his hearers. Gen. Koontz, the "white vest and perfume ry" candidate for Senator, was then called out. but as we had heard the General many times and ott, and knew that his whole speech would be wool from beginning to end, we left, satis fied that nothing better has happened the Demo cracy of Bedford county for many a year, thau the holding of this same Wilmot meeting. EQUALITY OF WHITES A ND NEGROES. In lowa, in submitting the new constitution, question of equality of whites and negroes as to political privileges was submitted to the people. Neatly the whole vote of the State was against the assumed equality. After all the pretences ofblack-repuhlicanism in favor of negro equality nearly the whole party voted against it. Few men in lowa were found voluntarily to vote themselves the equals of negroes. When brought to the test their negro professions were found to be mere political expedients which lionest men despise. Black-republicanism is Mead irt I ova, as well as almost everywhere else, and only needs its merited burial to he finally -forgotten, unless remembered for the wautori mischiefs if has brought upon the conn try.—lFos/i. Union. DEMOCRATIC COUNTY MEET i ING. Agreeably to notice, one of the largest, • most respectable, and enthusiastic meetings that ■ ever convened in Bedford, assembled at the Court House on last Wednesday evening, and : was organized by the appointment of the fol lowing officers: President, Maj. Samuel Davis; Vice Presi dents, Gen. James Burns, John Bowser, Simon Beard, Joseph Barkman, Col. J. C. EvwharW Maj. Moses MThvaine, Frederick Samuel Reighart, Maj. James' jfttf' Jwn Patton, Joljn S. Ritchey, Esq., Jacob win ms; I Secritaries, John W. Crismun, John B.rluck, Adolphis A ke, Isaac Menglt, Jr. The meeting thus organized, the subjoined resolutions were presented far the consideration j of the meeting, and passed unanimously and with great enthusiasm: after which addresses! were delivered by Messrs. S. H. l ate, G. W. j ■ Bowman, 13. F. Meyers, E. Shannon, when nine hearty cheers were given for the State and county Ticket: Resolved , That the Democracy of Bedford j county cordially approve of the Administration ' of JAMES BUCHANAN, and believe that under his wise and patriotic counselt, and his able and experienced cabinet, the foreign and domestic : affairs of the General Government, will lie so directed and controlled, as to/esult in the con i tinned prosperityand glory ofrwjrcomnion coun try. The quiet and prosperous state of the N'a- ' tion at this time, is conclus,ve proof that the I people were not mistaken in their choice of aj President in the alarming crisis of 1856., Tliat we hail with lively satisfac- | tion the nomination of GEN. WM. F. PACK ER. as the Democratic tandieate for Governor at the approaching election, llis high moral j j chaftcter, connected with his ilnswerving devo ; tion to the principles of the Democratic party, | and his acknowledged ability, qualify him, in an j eminent degree, for a faithful discharge of the ! duties of dm high trust for wljich he f>as been ! nominated, and we pledge ourselves to give him 1 a cordial, iTnited, and energeticsnpport, satisfied ; that he will be elected by a triumphant majority j over all opposition. Resolved , That the candidates chosen bv the I Democratic party for the offifes of Supreme Judge and Canal Cornmisioner,jare men every way worthy our hearty support, and we recom mend them to the voters of Bedford county as • entitled to their fullest confidence, arid as men ! who will adorn the high offices!or which they have been nominated. Resolved, That the Democratic Ticket nomi- j nated by the people of Bedford county, is t unexceptionable in every resp'ct, composed of men of fried integrity and cacacitv, and we | pledge ourselves to give the Ticket our undivi 1- ed support, from top to bottom. Resolved, That the Bill for (be sale of the Maine Line of the Public Workspl Pennsylva nia, passed by the last Legislature] in its various; details, was a measure of unparalleled iniquity \ and fraud upon the tax pavers of the Common wealth, reflecting infamy upon those who pass ed it, and we sincerely thank* the Supreme ; Court lor their able defence of the interests of, the. Commonwealth, in declairing void, the provisos in favor of the exemjlion of the i Pennsylvania Rail Road Company, from the payment of property and tonnage fa.ys, amount mg to several'hundred thousand -dollur,* j,.... y'r. Resolved. That the recent decisbn of the Supreme Court of the United States in the Dred ' Scott case, is one fraught with interest to the people of the whole country, and cilculated to j have an important bearing upon th future ib-s-j tiny ol our Union, ami that we corurally recog- j nize the sound policy jf its and give I our unqualified asssent to its principief. Resolved, That we re-affirm aatj declare; eternal hostility to all secret political assnci- I at ions—to all attempts to abridge the rights of > freemen, on account oi' their buth or religious j belief—and that we look with confideoceto the speedy and told overthrow of the Abolition fa- j natics whose sectional doctrines are calculated j to array one portion of our country agaiijt the other, and thus weaken the Bonds of thtscom rnon union which has made our pep pit free, happy, prosperous and contented. Resolved, 1 hat the election of Simon Gmer- ! on, an ABOLITJONJST, to the Senate c the I cited States, by the last Legislature, vm an ! act of profligacy unparalleled, in the pojtical history of the world. Whilst theoppositfn to the Democratic party, headed by FK. JoinvN, of Bedford, only a few months had declared, in an official paper, that they jould not vote for Cameron without throwing wav | their self-respect and violating their oaths;hey j rallied, to a man, to what they had denoticed as a "Buzzard 1* east, and bv the aid of cttain recreants, elected as Democrats, succeede in! thwarting the popular will as expressed though ' the ballot-box. Resolved, 1 hat the treachery, trickery'.land fraud, practised by the leaders of our appoints j last year, in professing to go for Fillifore whilst they were secretly pledged to Frei*oni, I should brand them forever as.unworthy Ihe ton- i fidence and respect ol honest and conscientious 1 men, no matter what their former political pre dilections. Resolved, That the nomination of Wilmot, by the Black Republican Know Nothings, as their candidate lor Governor, presents a singular contrast when compared with their Opinion of him, the said V\ iimot, as expressed in all their papers, Conventions and political meetings a few years since, when they declared him to he the "ONLY BRITISH FREE TRADE TORY IN PENN SYLVANIA, who "would forever stink in their nostrils," and whom they pledged themselves to pursue to that place "where the worm dieth not and where the fire is not quenched." Resolved f i hat we approve of the Township Meetings called by the County Committee, and pledge ourselves to use all diligence to procure a good turn out of the people at said meetings, satisfied that discussion is all that is required to carry our Ticket, State and County, to triumph ant success. Resolved , I hat we are net navy, and never have been, the advocates ol Slavery—that we leave this question where the law places it, in the haads oi ihp people of the States and Territories—and boldly assert that we have nothing more to do with settling the Slavery Question in Kansas than the people of Kansas have in settling the Taxes of the people of Pennsylvania. We contend that a NEGRO is not the equal ef a white mar., and we repudi ate ail attempts to confer upon them the right of suffrage, place them in the Jury Box, on the Bench, or i n the Legislative Halls, which is at the bottom of all abolition movements, r.o matter what their professions. Resolved, That the only issue between the Democracy and our Black Republican oppa nenls is, to ascertain whether a white man is as good as a black man, and we do not fear that

this question will be so settled in faver of the white man on the 2d Tuesday of October as to crush out forever this unnatural element in the political affairs of the country. The following resolution, prefaced by a few remarks, was offered by Hon. Jon MANX, and passed with much applause: Resolved , That this meeting of Democratic ; citizens of Bedford county, approve of the reourse of General Bowman, during the long ■period he conducted the Bedford Gazelle, >eing that of a faithful Sentinel on the Watch-tower of Democracy, and that we part with him as such wrth much regret, yet at the same time we are gratified that his mantle has fallen upon | worthy and competent gentlemen, from whom j we can expect important aid in the good cause : of Democracy. HOIS, W.M. p. SCfpl** It will be seed by reference to the proceed ings of the Democratic Senatorial Conference for this district, published in another column, that the gentleman who heads this article has been nominated as the candidate of the Demo cratic party for Senator for the district compos . Ed o! the counties of Somerset, Bedford and Huntingdon. Jt is unnecessary for ss to speak of the personal or political character of MR. | SCHELL. He is known to the citftens of this Senatorial district, as an unexceptional man, in I every sense of the term. lie is deserved I v pop- I ular wherever he j.s known, and he will poll i such a vote as will astonish those who are cred- : : ulous enough to believe that we shall bemisrepre ' sented by a Black Republican Senator in the j next legislature. Let every Democrat do his duty, and WM. P. SHELL will be ejected be yond a pcrad venture. I —4-e—j T - ' Our landidates for Asscmliiy. i o-day we raise to the head of our paper,' the name GEN'L JAMES BURNS, Jn., on Bedford County, and that of DAVID HAY, of. Somerset County, as the candidates to he suppor ted by the Democratic party of Bedford county, for the next Assembly. General BURNS needs no eulogy at our hands, for he has long been tried in the balances of Democracy ami has never been found vvariti ng. We are con vinced that every Democrat in Bedford county ' I vvili raily to his support. MR. HAY is one of the sturdy yeomanry of Somerset county a' ! plain, honest, practical man. He will run an unprecedented vote in his own county. With : i such candidates as Burns and Hay, we may well 1 j hope for a triumph. AMERICAN MEETING. At the close of the W iimot Abolition meeting on I iiesday night, Dr. Compiler announced to the audience liiat an "American" meeting would be held in the Court House on the follow ing evening, to which he invited all who were disposed to give them a fair hearing.—The hour tor meeting having arrived, which was atunxw red by the ringing of tl e bell, tar.;. 1.01 .course , of people made their way to the Court House,) who were addressed by Dr. Compher in a speech of considerable length, in which he was warmly and enthusiastically clipered by his "American brethren.—The Doctor having passed rough shod i over the Democratic party, lie next proceeded to dissect the principles of "Republicanism" as promulgated by Wilinot, which he did in a ( manner tfiat struck terror to the hearts of the ' few Abolition leaders present, and t c/10 "sneak ed" out of the house when lie was about bait through, unable to stand thy withering ex- i posures he was making, lie expressed great disappointment with Wilmot pronounced bis ! speech an abortion—and said that bis appear-| in Bedford had,weakened the 'Republican'! cause, and that the ofteuer they brought him I here, the fewer votes they would have. He denounced the Republican doctrine, any filing to heed the J.oco Focos , as mean and contempti ble, and declared that he and tbe true "Ameri cans of Bedford county stood pledged to op pose Wilmot to the bitter end—that he was the unrelenting enemy cf Henry Clay, and was the only man in Congress from Pennsylvania who voted for fhe repeal of the tariff" of 1812! The Doctor charged tbe leaders of the "Amer caii party who had travelled the county with him last fall, making Fillmore, speeches, with having dastardly sold the "American" party to 1' n-'-inoiit on the eve of the election He said heeould name the men, (all knew who he truant) but as they were not present to defend thimselves he would not do so then, lie chal lerged the Republicans to refute what he was saving, and paused for a reply—but thev dared not Je also stated that SIOO,OOO had been sent intt Pennsylvania to buy politicians ami presses aru that that accounts for tire sudden change Iron Fillmore to Freemont! It is plain to be, therefore, tfiat there is a bitter l'ued be tueen the Abolitionists and the Americans, lo! tlnse many years. In view of this state of af fairs, what conscientious farmer and working nan fount! acting with a set of deprav. ■d leaders who, for gold, sold their party and heir honor (if they t -ver had any) as Arnold lid his country? At the close of Dr. Com >her's speed cheers long and loud went up for •Hazelhorst \nd the candidates running on his cket." Deluled as Dr. Compher is on the ibject of "Aoericanism," all must give him redit for being/tones/ in standing by his pro ssiour.

David Stringer M'Kim, convicted of the mur ' der of young Norcross, near Altoona, in Janu ary last, has paid the penalty of the 3W f u l cfime jby an ignominious death upon the gallons. He died protesting his innocence, and denounc ing, as .perjure! s and murderers, those who tes tified against him. lie made a rambling, wild and denunciatory ! speech of some length, in which blessing and j curses were mingled, protesting vehemently his innocence, and professing to have found the ! road to eternal salvation. On the scatfold, he was attended by R>v. I). X. Junkin, of J[ dli daysburg, and Rev. O O. M'Lean, of Hunting don, both of whom faithfully endeavored topn j pare him for his unknown voyage At 15 minutes to 11, he was brought upon the scaffold, 3nd about half past 1 the drop fell, ! and the unfortunate man was launched into eter nity. He diil not appear to die hard, his feet raised two or threetirnes, and his fingers twitch ed a little. The drop was about four feet, and did not dislocate his neck, though it is supposed to have rendered him insensible to pain. He was taken down, and placed in his coffin, after hanging about an hour. But a slight dif ference was observed in his appearance, his eyes were half-closed, his mouth was open, and his tongue, which protruded slightly, was cov ered with blood, ihs neck bore marks of the cord, and in one place the skin was badly cut. Immediately after the bodv was placed in the' coffin it was conveyed to the Pooi House, arid i buried at the expense of the county, his friends j having failed to fulfill their promise to call for | ami take charge of it. A large crowd of people were drawn to Hol lidayshurg by a desire to obtain a sisrht of the ] execution, and a morbid curiosity 10 witness j the horrible scene of a murderer's death; but : | they were dissppointeti, every one being exclu- j : ded except the clergymen, reporters, officers 1 and jurors. Much intoxication prevailed, sev j eral fights occured, and the county furnished lodgings for some of the disorderly ones, to w it: in jail. During the night preceding his execution, theuufortunate man attempted to commit suicide, i by opening a vein in his left arm, immediately j above the wrist, with a steel pen, but the guard discovered it, and the attempt was balked. He had written a speech, u hich is S3id to have covered some forty or fifty pages of manuscript, | but destroyed it before attempting suicide.— Tyrone Herald.' NORTH CAROLINA ELECTION".
