During the last Presidential campaign, VYw. H. KOONTZ, and FRANCIS JORDAN, were em ployed in making Fillmore speeches at various points in this countv, and were then recognised as the stump orators, par excellence, of the "American" party in this region. At the same time, ALEXANDER KING, S. L. RUSSELL, and JOHN H. FILLER, were the Fremont speakers, and the champions of what they called "Re publicanism," being also the hitter enemies of "Americanism." Now we see all these men, Koontz, Jordan, King, Russell and Filler, an nounced in conjunction with each other to ad dress the Wilmot meetings that are to lie held throughout the county. We are naturally led to inquire what this means. The mystery is easily solved. Koontz and Jordan, who were so loud in their declarations of fidelity to "A mericanism," flattering themselves that, as thev were successful in gulling the "American" par ty of this county into voting the Fremont Elec toral Ticket , last Fall, they will he able again to delude them into supporting the enemy of Fillmore, have gone, over to the Fremont speakers, King, Russell, and Filler, to assist I hem in building up the Abolition party —the party against which Mr. Fillmore again and again warned his fellow citizens. That is what it means and nothing else. IJOli DAVIS. The above named gentleman, ttip Democratic nominee for Treasurer of Bedford county, has been visiting different parts of the county, and we are glad to hear, has made a very favorable impression wherever he has gone. The Major is a man with whom one needs only become thoroughly acquainted to like ami respect him. He is emphatically one of the people ■ a man who hides under a careles-, exterior, a warm and honest heart. His past life has built up such a character tor him as will pass through the slanderous assaults of his political enemies, unspotted and unscathed. The fierceness and insidiousness with which they are secretly working against hiir., shows plainly enough that they believe him invincible in a (air and open tight. When they find that the Democratic party id Bedford county, is determined to hurl back the insult offered it by asking some of its members to vote (or that representative of Know Nothing Abolitionism. Mr. George Oster, and when they see, as they will see, that party present an front, in suppport of Maj. Davis, then will their despair be black indeed, for every hope of success that ever cheered (heir sorrowing hearts, will have taken its flight. ilsfLet it be remembered that every man on the opposition County Ticket, is a supporter of David Wilmot, the man, who, the Whigs said in IS4-G, would "stink (oiever in the nostrils of every tiue-hearted Pennsyl vanian." This cannot be denied. Will any of the opposition candidates dare to say that he will not vote for David Wilmot for Governor, and that he is a supporter of Isaac Hazlehurst ? We challenge them to do so. The candidate for Poor House Director, Thomas Imler, said a short time ago, that he was in favor of Mr. Hazlehurst, but on being interrogated on the subject by the aboli tionists, remarked that he was "only in fun when he said so." The truth is, neither he, nor any of the men on his ticket, dare define their positions, as to whether they are tor Wil mot, or Hazlehurst. DEMOCRATIC PROPHECIES FULFILLED THE "AMERICAN" PARTY DRAGGED INTO ABOLITIONISM AND ITS LEADERS THE SUPPORTERS OF THE ABOLITION CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNOR! ! Last Fall the charge was made that the Fill- ! more party of Bedford county, would be dis posed of by its venal leaders, for the benefit of Fremont and Abolitionism. For doing this,' Democrats were pronounced liac. and scoun drels, and the vials of Abolition wrath were ; poured out upon their heads in unceasing i streams. Nevertheless, the result at the No- ' vember election, proved the charge to have been I well-founded, and verified the prophecy to the very letter. Notwithstanding the repeated as surances given bv the Fillmore leaders, both j from the stump and through their newspaper oigan, that they would remain steadfast in their support of the "American" candidate, Election day found them voting and working for the "Union Electoral Ticket," planned by Fre mont wire-workers, and gotten up for thespeci-J al benefit of the Abolitionists and their candi date. The speakers of the Fillmore party, ; made it a point particularly to deny that they i were in league with the Fremont faction.— They were unsparing in their denunciations of those who charged them with being in favor pf > the election of that candidate. They insisted ! that they were Fillmore men and nothing else, j But, mark the end! Two of Ihose speakers,: Francis Jordan and VVrn. H. Koontz, after having endorsed the Str-iie'/it Fillmore Ticket, after having made the loudest professions of at- j tachment to the interests of Mr. Fillmore, when j the election came on, turned around and became ; the uncompromising advocates of the " Union Electoral Ticket ," composed of Fremont eject ors, with Fillmore's name at the head, as a "blind!" Another of th- Fillmore speakers, and one who took a very active part in the last campaign, Dr. Compiler, now says that the Fill more party was sold out last Fall to the Fre monters—"sold," to use the strong language employed by the Doctor, " like sheep in the shambles!" Here, then, is the proof, drawn not only from their conduct in turning from the Straight Fillmore Ticket, (which they kept standing at the mast-head of their organ until within a short time of the election, and which they had approved time and again,) to the sup ; port ot the Fremont Ticket, but directly given in the declarations of one of their own leading j men, establishing clearly and incontrovertiblv : the truth of the charge made by the Democrats that the Fillmore men of Bedford county would ! be humbugged into voting for John C. Fremont. If evidence were wanting that this infamous trickery was accomplished, it would only be i necessary to advert to the fact that the two prin cipal Fillmore speakers that last Fall canvass- I ed this county, are now warmly supporting for Governor, the right hand man of John C. Fremont, in Pennsylvania, and who was also : one (if the men that signed and published the I call for the Convention which met at Philadel phia, and nominated Fremont in opposition to Fillmore, DAVID VVII. MOT, the Bradford Aboli jtiotlist. These Fillmore speakers, Messrs. Koontz and Jordan, are now, where the Democrats predicted last Fall, they would be, in the ranks |of Abolitionism. The Fillmore candidate, Mr. Hazlehurst, has no charms for them. They are ! for VVilmot, the pimp of Horace Greeley, who ! denounced Fillmore as a traitor to his country ! They are for the doctrines of which Fremont was the representative in the iast campaign, and which Fillmore declared to be fraught with : danger to the best interests of the nation Should not men, therefore, who respect them selves, turn away from them in disgust, and •give a deaf ear to their reckless asseverations ? Should they not be met when they come with promises like those made by them last fall, and which they did not fulfil, with that contempt which their shameless conduct so richly merits? Citizens of Bedford county, be warned against their political quackery ! Measure these men hy the standard of their past deeds, ami teach them that they cannot foist their sophisms upon you with impunity. organ of the Plug Uglies in our neighbor county of Somerset, is very cross on account o( the opposition made by us to its can didate for Senator because of his Abolitionism, ft says that we oppose Koontz on the ground of his being an Abolitionist, whilst in Somerset county his opponents urge as an objection to his claims, his connection with the order of Know Nothings. We would ask the Somerset Plug, how can we helpdoing this, when Koontz isone thing hete and another there—vvhetl he pretends to he an "American" with "Americans" and an Abolitionist with Abolitionists? It isour priv ilege to shoot at the General on either horse, whether be bestrides the coat-black, negro-skin ned, wind-broken, spavin-heeled charger of Abolitionism, or whether he ambles along on the snotting, stamping, prancing Rosinante of Know Notbingism: and the sai l General's past political lile, is a perfect magazine of powder and shot from which we cati draw ammunition far the broad-sides which, if he does not ride his two homes very straight, will he poured into him. IBOMTIOSfSTS, FACE THE WISH ! lire Washington bnion , says an opportunity is now afforded the Abolition philanthropists to reduce their theories to practice. A Mr. Jenk ins. through oneof theSelma (Alabama) papers, proposes to sell 733 Slaves at an average o! s'oo each to the compensatory emancipationists who recently held a national convention at Cleveland, Ohio. They are to remove them in twenty days, beyond the limits of the Slave States, and provide for ail their wants twelve months afterwards. \ow then, let us see wheth er these pretended friends of the black man will f.icc the music. AMBITS, TO THE RESfIE! Election day is fast approaching. A few more weeks will bring us upon its threshold. Are you 'prepared, fellow Democrats, for the contest ■ Have you girded on your armor for the fight, and brightened up your arms for the battle ? If not, see that you do so.—- See that you are ready to meet your foe. See that every soldier in the cause uf Democracy, docs bis duty.— Make new conscripts on your rolls. Make old ones fresh in their ardor. Let no energy of mind, or body. Gag in the vindication of our glorious princi ples. Let no man depend on bis neigh bor lor that which he should do him self. Hemember the old patriotic aph orism— "'Eternal \ igilance i- tbe price of Liberty." Ucntember that a tri umphant victory awaits us —but nnlv if we all do our duty. Therefore, rally to \our Township meetings! Work for the doctrines and candidates of your party ! And above all, >ve that every man of \ on turn-out tu the polls on the Second Tuesday of October. WHAT 18 THE HKYSRY ? The Abolitionists head their call for Town, ship Meetings, "Political Meetings," not daring to call them H i/mot .Meetings . What is the ; reason of this? Are they afraid there will be too many Hazfehurst men present at those meet ings to justify them in calling them Wilmot meetings, or are they in the market again to lie sold as the Fillmore men were last Fall, like sheep in the shambles? THE BRIBERY OF FILLMORE EDITORS BY GOV. FORD. The Daily -Yews, the organ of the Ameri can party in Pennsylvania, is verv severe upon the editors who last Fall changed from Fillmore to Fremont. It keeps the gentlemen who were bought by the Fremont agent, Gov. Ford, and , others who were bribed in a different way and Ibv different Fremont puisers, continually in "hot water." It taunts them with bitterest sarcasms,and when they pick up courage enough to reply, it laughs at them "consumedly." W'e f . . copy the following interesting morceau from its | columns, which, we have no doubt, will oper ate to the extreme delectation of our readeis: ANOTHER MAN ON THE ANXIOUS BENCH.— The editor of the Lewi-tow 11 Gazette, w ho lu.-t year started out for Fillmore, then for Fremont and finally for fusion, is anxious to know wheth , er his paper is on the Ford list now in the pos session of Mr. Swoope, He makes ail softs of 1 protestations of his innocence, and after going on ! to say what hard names he will tail any one j who accuses him of having been bribed, winds iup as follows;—" Let the list !>e published, and the parties made known, so that justice rnav be done to at]: am! we pledge ourselves, so far as the Gazette is concerned, if it will appear that Gov. Ford has set 11- down among the number, we will spend something U) know what he Las done with the money." '-\s Mr. Swoope has ; this job on hand, and is abundantly able tu satis -1 fy the public, we can only a-sure tl(e Gazette j man that his curiosity will he satisfied indue I time, and that he will probably have a chance to "spend something" to find out w hat Ford did with the money. There i>- rare sport ahead. I The publication of the Ford list we apprehend, j will >lir up a pretty kettle of fish. When rogues ! are once brought at loggerheads, then hones! i men will get their dues. H. f. STEWART, O\K OF THE I ABOLITION CANDIDATES, FOR AS SEMBLY, FOR THIS DISTRICT. WHAT HE IS THOUGHT OF AT HOME. The Somerset Democrat , of the 9th inst. in : an editorial on the reckless stories and fahricn tions which were set afloat by the opposition in that county, during the last campaign, holds the ! following language in reference to 11. C. Stew art, the Abolition-fxnow-Notliing candidate for ' Assembly from Somerset county, whose pro pensities for falsification are the "common talk" ; of all his neighbors: Another story, which did our cause some'in ; jury, was that charging that the democratic pole i at Meyer's Mill was sprinkled by members of ; our party- alter its'erection, with "holy water!" This barefaced lie, this mean, dirty, unmanly , and "niggerly" charge, claims parentage of that ; beautiful j ink of political rascality, H. C Stewart ! the Plug Ugly nominee for the Legislature. ! He was the only member of that party in the j county degraded enough, so steeped in falsehood I and iniquity as to imagine it and give it the ! start, and others, better rep.it,,l f or honesty and j truth, gave it that impetus which his r.'pnta j tion would have prevented him from doin-r. |j there is any one bail trait in a man's character I which w-e abhor more than another, it is his greedy appetite for falsehood, which makes him not only its retailer, hut likewise the concoctor Jof the lowest and most malicious fabrications. : This is one of S;-nvart's frailties, perhaps his greatest, and we, therefore, consider him a d an gerous personage and utteily unworthy of anv honest man's support. Were he a member uf the Anti-Know Nothing party, (which God he thanked he is not,) with ail his present stains upon his character, he never could receive our support for the most trifling position. We ! loathe, abhor and despise a liar, and, there fore, such is our state of mind towards Henry C. i Stewart. The DfmofratU- Nomination for Senator. It will be seen by reference to the proceedings ol the Democratic Senatorial Conference, held !at Bedford on the 3lst lilt., published m our i paper of to-day, that WILLIAM J\ SCHELL, i Esq.,of Bedford county, has received ttie nom i ination of tliat body for Senator. ' We feel strong in the beliel, that no better selection could have been made. Mr. Schell is a first iate man, possessed of fine talents, a fluent and logical debater, and decidedly popular with the people. In his Case, strange as it may seem in these degenerate times, the office is seeking the man, as he had no ambition or desire fi>r official honors or emoluments. Unlike his office-seek ing opponent, General Koontz, he made no effort |to obtain a nomination, and was unaware of it until it was publicly announced. It was a free will offering of his democratic fellow-citizens, and we have assurances that he will accept the nomination so spontaneously tendered, and de vote himself thoroughly to the work before him. We are told -hat the announcement of his nom ination at the Democratic meeting in Bedford on the same evening, was received with thunders of applause and every demonstration of joy. He is a favorite son of the people of that county and they will roll up for him a heavy majority in October. The Opposition will find in the democratic nominee a man not easily defeated, and one much the superior in every respect of

their own candidate.— Somerset Democrat. X ctu 3i>ur rll scm cnt s.

We barn tiiat these leaders have Iving scoundrels, who are of course, paid for their services, travelling about stating positively that Mr. Hazlehurst either had already or soon would,decline oeiug a candidate. I he whole story is a deliberate and willful false ! hood. Mr. Hazlehurst has not and will not de~ I dine. He is in the fir-!ii as the American candi date, and will remain there until the close of the election. On this point we speak positively and authoritatively.—Daily JWios. *5 A It St I E I> : Oil the 10th inst., by the Rev. C.
