Tbe Bedford Gazette. LOCAL AND PERSONAL. PR. UiCKOK delivered an address before the teachers attending the Teachers' School, in the lecture room of the Presbyterian Church, on the evening of the 24th ult. The Doctor's effort is well spoken of by all who had the pleasure of hearing him. The County superintendent, Mr. Heckerman, also delivered an excellent address 0 n theocrasion. THE GALL*INT DEMOCRATS of East Providence Township, held a meeting at the house ot D. A. T. Black, Esq., in that town ship, on Saturday, the J Bth of September. The list of the officers of this meeting has been mis laid. We remember only that YVM. GRAY, Esq., was President, YVm. Richey, John Barton and Joseph Chamberlain, Esqs., Vice Presidents, and Wot. Morgart and John C. Black, Esqs. Secretaries. Addresses were made by G. H. Spang, £ s q- and Major Tate. The meeting was large and full of enthusiasm.

The meeting adjourned with three loud and hearty cheers for the Democratic State and County Tickets.— Juniata will be right side up with care, on the Second Tuesday of October. Slick a pin there ! Ao interesting reminiscence (to us, at least,) of this meeting, is the recollection of the elegant supper served uj) by Jtuige Snively ol Schelis burg, loceitain parties, on their return from Buena Vista. Commend us to the table of the Judge, for good eating. MEE T ISC Of THE BUCHANAN CLUB— The largest merlin? of this association that has yet been held during the present campaign, assembled in the Court House, on Saturday eve ning last. The meeting was called to order by HON. JOB MANN, President of the Club, and was ably and effectively addressed by Gen. Bowman, O. E. Shannon and G. H. Spang, Esqs. The speakers were frequently interrupted : with loud and continued applause. The speech of Mr. Shannon, was an able j and searching exposition of'Che frauds practised I by the Abolitionists of tnistounty, last Fall, in obtaining the Fillmore vote for their own can- 1 didate, Fremont. He showed from thp files of j the Abolition organ in this place, that whilst it ! pretended to be supporting Fillmore, it was publishing articles deeply tinged with the doc trines of the Fremont party, and that with Fill- i more's name at the mast-head, it was secretly ! and indirectly laboring for the success of his Abolition opponent. He referred to the fact that thu same Abolition organ had made a very ; IjV'Cm afair notice of OW. FV>ftt/s speech tine ( last Fall, and of the Fremont meeting before i which it was delivered, and that it published 1 calls for Fremont and Dayton meetings, all of which, said the speaker, were proofs incontro- ; vertibl* that those who managed its editorial de partment, although insisting that they were friends of Fillmore, were Fremont men in dis- ! guise. He then adverted to the ciiarge of bri bery preferred against certain of the Fillmore j press, by Air. Swoope, the Chairman of the A- ' mericssi State Committee. The people of Bed- | lord county, said he, were warned during the: last campaign, against the corruption and ve rality of the Opposition leaders. The proofs j are now before us, that that warning was not j given wrthout suthcient cause. One of the j principal newspapers belonging to the Opposi- J tion press of the state, publishes a communica tion from the Chairman of the American State i Committee in which the statement is made and | sustained by affidavit, Gov. Ford left the sum oj s.ioo in this county as a bribe for the so-called Fillmore paper! The wriggling and twisting of that paper, under the charge, said Ur. Shannon, serves but to convince the people that there is "more truth than poetry" in the allegations of Mr Swoope. Mi. S. might well have added, in the language of the gifted Loaiva y: "'•The man who takes a bribe would strip the dead, vJr.tahthe orphan of his crust of bread; tkvlest to justice, equity and right, this man would steal the aged widow's mite; He is prepared for every kind of fraud his country, or betray his God, 'Pillage the palace of the King of Kings, Ant!-strip the gilding from an angel's wings." After the speakers had concluded, the meet tag-adjourned amid deafening cheers, and loud eamacstrations of joy. II \ R K I ED: Gn Sunday the 20th of Sep., ultimo, by P. F.
