THE BEDFORD HZSTTI. Eitriiord, - B. F. Meyers &G. W. Benford, Editors. WHO SHALL DECUTC WHEN DOCTORS DISAGREE? Senator DOUULAS, in in.- Lie sp-rdi on Kan sas affairs, lavs paiticular sties- on what he pro nounces the illegality of the Lt-compton Con vention. Hi* whole argument rests on the ba sis of an assumption: viz : Thai the Convention which formed the Lecomp'nn Constitution was not a legal body, for this reason lie urges Con gress to refuse the admisiot. ol Kansas under that Constitution. For this reason lie insists that an "enabling act" is necessary. On the other hand, Gov. WALKER acLnow ledges the legality of the aforesaid Convention, llis op position to the admission of Kansas under the form of government adopted by that Conven tion, is based* on quite different foundations.— He says that sovereignty can not he delegated— that the people cannot appoint agents to make a Constitution for them which shall bind them any length of time unless it be ratified by a ma jority of them. Therefore, Senator Douglas and Gov. Walker differ very materially in their theories, in fact the argument of the one greatly weakens thatjof the other. Again : Mr. Secre tary Stanton, disagrees with both of these illus trious theorists. He savs in plainand unequiv ocal terms that the refusal of a majorily (the free state Abolitionists) to vote for delegates to the constitutional Cvnvention teas the cause oj all the evils and dangers of the present crisis. He truthfully attributes all the trouble which we are now having in relation to the affairs of Kansas, to the stubbornness and hypocrisy of the Abolitionists. Thus we see the vast differ ence between the opinions of the men who, the Abolitionists say are opposed to the Kansas poli cy of the Administration. They contradict pact) other time and again. There is scarcely a sin gle position, save that of hostility to the Le compton Constitution, held in common by them. The Abolitionists had, therefore, better set about reconciling these contradictions, lest the people propound to them'the question "WhoJ; shall de cide when doctors disagree?" and answer it for them in a voice of thunder, JAMES BUCHANAN ; GOV- WISE, OF VIRGINIA- The Abolitionists felicitate themselves ex ceedingly over a letter lately written bv this gentleman to the Tammany Society of .Yew York city, in which the ground is taken that Congress should admit Kansas with the Lecomp. ton Constitution, the said constitution to be submitted to the people of Kansas for ratifica tion after their admission into the Union. How these very consistent gentlemen could ever bring themselves to rejoice over any position assumed by that "arch-priest of slavery propagandists, Henry A. Wise," as tlu-v w.-re wont to call him, we find it impossible to conjecture; much less able are we to comprehend how such ardent haters of the "Lecompton swindle" ( so denom inated in Abolition parlance) as they profess to be, could become so boisterously jubilant over the opinion of that "arch priest"—that Con gress should receive Kansas into the Union un der the Constitution adopted on the 21st ult.— But "every day brings something new"—espe cially in regard to the Abolitionists. The next thing we shall hear of, will, doubtless, be that they propose to erect a monument to the heath en who first engaged in the African slave-trade. The following is the concluding portion of Gov. Wise's letter; the Abolitionists are lieaiti ly welcome to all the comfort they can derive from that: "The great State of \eiv York should realize the responsibility resting upon her. If she will j stand by Mr. Buchanan as she did by Gen. Jack- I son; if her democracy will only firmly unite- : if she will maintain no other rule of law and the constitution ; if she will remember her great- I est stake in swelling the late democratic tri umphs into a permanency of power, and in : maintaining law, order, justice, peace, and uni- j on ; if her democracy will cease their factions 1 divisions and devotedly and unitedly come up to the patriotic work of saving a happy ami prosperous confederacy from the dangers of dis solution, or the disasters of civil war, then, tru- • ly, New York will resume her empire ande an arbitress thrice blessed as the peace'n aWr. All the sister State? already contribute tomer beauty and strength; she is in position pnd pqw- ' er lobe an arbitress, but to be so in truth and! with effect she must be sanctified to the hfoh and holy office.'" Abolition Rilhngsgalr, The clique of black-guanis who does up j the fish-woman slang that pass, s for etiiorinL (heaven save the mark !} to the muddy columns i of the Abolition organ in this place, seem to think that they make a very happv hit when they call the Gazette the "/Agger org///? We have no doubt the epithet is a very witty one for, cert e.<t, a "buzzard feast" Senator would not say anything dull. We do not know, howev er, whether the Democracy of Bedford county will consider it either u illy, or complimentary. They may, for aught we know, object to beiDg called "niggers." They mav even go so far as to say that the aforesaid ••piiii.t would applv with equal torce to that party of fag-ends which has strained its utmost to curtail the pri- j vileges <-V the while man ghe foreigner) and which are even tng to enlarge those of' the black. Th.v will at least remember next; lall, wh n Ab.i!f'oii-lvn.|. \y!;ing candidates 1 wiil be again sneaking ixmi.j begging theirij voles, thai the Abolitionist* ks?W upon the Bed ford Gazette as the nigger ar<r, i/>," and per consequence, upon Democrats as "niggers." j Don't, you thiuk so, Buzzard! i£r*The New York Herald publishes a letter from Senator Brown, of Mississippi, denying having abandoned the Lecompton Constitution and saying that he has no doubt of its adoption. HON. WM P SCHELL- We notice that our able and attentive Sena tor has been made chairman of one of the stand ing committees of the Senate and that he is a member of several others. Mr. Schel! is deser vedly held in high esteem by his fellow sena tors, and we have no doubt that lie will in his present position, do great honor both to himself and the glorious Democracy of this Senatorial district. HON- J NO- CESSNA. We are informed that Gov. PACKER had ten dered the Sea etaryship since accepted by Mr. ! Heister, to 1 lon. John Cessna, of this place.— We regret that Mr. C. did not accept the ap pointment as he would certainly have made an excellent officer. speaking of the charges of corruption now before Congress, the Philadelphia Jlrgu*, j says:— Grave charges of fraud and corruption are now before the Congress of the United States. First we have a charge against Mr. Cullom, late Black Republican Clerk of the House ot Repres entatives, for defrauding the Treasury of $25,- | 000 in the distribution ol books to the members, i Then there is a charge of bribery and corrup ! tion against certain Black Republican members of the last Congress, arising from the item in the books of Lawrence, Stone be Co., of Boston, of $87,000, for passing the amended tariff act: : then the private sale oi Fort Snelling reserva tion by the government at a price which some j Black Republican growler alleges to be far less than might have been obtained for it; and last ! though not least, the movement for the re-expul- I sion of the notorious, O. B. Matteson, member I from the Oneida District, from the House of ! Representatives. Highly interesting view of ■ tilings to the lovers of justice of molality. THE FAILURE OF THE OUTRAGE CROP. —The editor of the Albany Argus and .'lt I as is evi dently a wag in his way. In a late number he roasts the Republicans and their allies unmerci fully on account of their deplorable condition, arising from the late entire failure of the Kan sas outrage crop. Hear him : "The Tribune pointed with pride to its story of'two free State men burned to death to Fort Scott,' and 'the hanging of a clergyman named Stewart,' while 'Civil War,' 'Siege of Fort Scott,' 'defeat of United Slates Troops,' 'March of Gen. Lane and 130U,troops,''Arrest Lane,' &.C., brought .forward by its colleagues. All these fruits of Black Republican culture, In 11 of promise, have been blighted—nipped in the bud by a kiliing frost. "Poets speak of 'the luxury of woe,' but this is not a question of luxury. Outrages have come to be a matter of necessity ; and the ca lamity will deprive people of their livelihood. What will Greeley do without his outrages '? He can set up the cry for 'Protection to Amer ican Outrages,' and require of Congress to inter fen- in behalf of this branch of home industry : but in the meantime what are his readers to do without their daily outrage—their brown-toast- j ed free State men and hung clericals, which they are accustomed to partake of lor break fast' ? "We know that, by a wise provision, the growers oi' tins profitable political crop, have at tempted to extend it beyond Kansas and have put Utah under cultivation. A few weeks ago, we had a glowing account of murder, star vation, poison, and defeat, oi which the United States troops were the victims! It promised well ; but it peiished ere its bloom! Yesterday a first-rate outrage was brought out for the de lectation of tfie iiJack Republicans in the shape of rumor that a division of Government troops in Utah had been intercepted, overpowered by Mormons, butchered fo the number of 200, and taken prisoners to a large extent besides, and the officers hung. This was a most gratifying evidence of the capacity of the distant soil of .Utah for tfie growth of outrages ; but we fear that this beautiful and efjbrescent specimen has been brought out too !at- in the year, and perish in the fro>t ! "The contemplation of th* misery caused by the failure of this great staple is heart-rending. Greeley may be compeljeU {.. tej| (he riutb: Beecher to Pun to religion: and Heaven knowns to what extremities others mav be driven in mid-winter. We draw the veil upon the picture, ami wait for some philanthropist to propose a subscription." LATEST NEWS FROM UTAH- 1 he St. Bonis Republican of the l.'Jlii announ ces the arrival in that city pi Lieutenant Cor nd, 10th regiment I rutnl States infantry, di recj from tin' army at Fort Bridger, having left Colonel Johnson's command on the Ist De cember. Tile whole of tfee troops sent out upon this expedition have been concentrated, and wre in winter quarters on Black's Fork, about one and a quarter mile above Fait Bridger, with the ex ception of Colr#nel ( ooke's command of dragoons, inch was posted forty miles distant, on Hen ry s fork, where there was some scant supply of grass for the hnr>es. Five companies of in fantry were stationed at old Fort Bridger, and ivefe engaged m rebuilding the works, for the purpose of protecting the provisions, and to he occupied hereafter as a permanapt fbrt by the I iiited States. To • whole of the works, it was anticipated, would be completed by the spring, ihe locality is an excellent one for this ofej?fct. 1 here is an abundance of wood lor fuel and of water. The troops were all comfortably sta tioned in tents, with stoves, and the weather had been, luckily, very mild. Tiiev were in excellent health, and numbered some twelve or fifteen hundred in addition to which, it may he staled, that there were about a thousand team sters. and other attaches of an army. Ihe rumors that the .Mormons proposed to abandon their settlment at Salt Lake City and remove to the British possessions are repeated, and the impression prevails '.hat a removal in the spring is contemplated. , : Col. Johnson is represented to be so firmly of this belief, that he asks no increase of the numerical force of the aimy under his command, although supplies will be needed. KBKTCCKT DEMOCRACY.— At the Convention of the Kentucky Democracy, assembled at Frankfort, January 8, the fblhuvirf£ resolution was adopted : That we have undiminished confidence in the patriotism and wisdom of our distinguished ( hief Magistrate, and believe that the views ex pressed t>y him in his first annual message to the ( ongn-ss u f (tie United States, in leh r- nce 1o the admission ol the State ot Kansas into the federal t nion, patriotic and just. 33rcritics. —>Jhe City of Chicago is only twenty-six years old.

Utli, 1858. 1 stepped into the Supreme Court Room a few days ago, and, to mv astonishment, found it crowded with the most distinguished men o! the Capitol, and being curious to know the cause of this unusual gathering of great minds, I soon learned that it was the occasion of Judge Black s debut before this Court in a case of great impor tance. All seemed anxious to hear how his first forensic effort before the most august legal tri bunal in the world, would sustain his high char acter tor talents ami learning. As a Pennsylvania!), 1 felt an unusual inter est in his success, and 1 must admit that I was restless and uncertain of the result ; tor, with all my confidence in Judge Black's great inind, I well knew that he had been for years upon the bench, and in the character of Judge J feared he had forgotten th>* cunning of the advocate, and that the cairn deliberation requisite in the decision of casf-s, had unfitted him for the "rough and tumble" of the bar : and J feared lest the constraint of a first appearance before this exalted tribunal might so embarrass him, that his effort would not be worthy the man. The case was that of the United States vs. Hen ry Cambuston, and the questions involved some of the most abstruse legal learning found in the hooks. The defendant claimed title to a large and valuable tract of land in California,and the defence to his title was the allegation that his -papers w?re forged and his evidence manufac

tured for the occasion. Attorney General Black rose calm, easy, dignified and collected, and with a logic clear, forcible and convincing, h>* proceeded to unwind the tangled skein of the defendant's claim to bring to light the secret machinery employed to perfect this pretended title. With illustrations simple and familiar, yet pertinent and expressive, the whole case was made to assume a new appearance. You could almost see the li3nd that wrote the spu rious grant faltering in its work of fraud. You looked upon and pitied the poor perjured witness who craved the wrath of Heaven and invoked the terrors of the last great day on his tale of falsehood; he stood before you with the secret witness of his heart laid hare—a revolting spec tacle of the degradation of man. You know that I love Judge Black, but never before did I feel so proud of him, and never be fore did he rise so much above himself as on the occasion of his debut in this great case. The deep tones ofhis manly voice, the coolness and clearness with which he dissected and exposed to view the intricate secrets which hung around the inception of the defendant's title, clothed in the rich drapery of racy, pure old Anglo-Saxon words, combined sentences terse and so powerful, all contributed to heighten the man and the occasion, and to win from the auditory full admiration. It is admitted on ail bands that Judge Biack is one of the ablest Attorney-Generals we eve r had. This is saying much, but nevertheless it is true. Here, as at his Keystone home, he is a universal favorite—admired for his excellent talents, and loved for his social virtues, SEPOY" VICTIMS IN ENGLAND- fhe Medical Jimes says : "It has become the fashion for certain writers to throw doubts upon the truth oi the reports of the atrocities commit ted by the Sepoy mutineers upon our countrv loen in India. It is said that these reports have come through native spies, have been col ored by Indian press, and have not been authen ticated by European testimony. How for these irgnments are ivorrhy of credit our readers may judge from the following statement.— We have Oeen assured by a medical friend that he has been consulted by a ladv who has recently arrived at Bayswater, fiom India, whose noes has been cutoff. H>T child, three ve.irs old, has neither hands nor feet ; thev were all cut off by tiie mutineers. How the child survived is a mystery. The governess to the family escaped with the loss of her ears, which were cut off as an easy way of getting her ear-rings. Another friend is attending a lady whose nose has been slit open, and her ears have been cut off. She has brought home to England three young chil dren, all blind. 1 heir eyes have all been gou ged out by the Sepoys. We have heard from another source, quite beyond question, (a lady who speaks from personal knowledge,) that there air several ladies now in Calcutta, who have undergone such unspeakable degradation that they obstinately refuse to give their names. They prefer to be thought of bv their relations in England as dead. There are also in Calcutta several young children whose names are quite tnknown. One little creature says "she is namma's pet," and that is all we are likely to know of her past history. TJIE JEWS IN NEW YORK- A New York correspondent of the Boston Journal mentions the following recent modifica- in the religious observance ol the Jews in tiat citv, who number, we believe, nut tar from &,000 : j 4l H)e old slyleol singing, in one or more of tie lip-town synagogues, has given place to a modern choir, organ and all the accompaniment?, ibis has brr-n done ir; the face of tire most virulent opposition from the staid old Jews, aid to the inhntle disgust ot all who ask for the oil paths, But the innovation does not end \yilh the organ and the choir. The question of tie day ol worship has on many occasions agi tated the Hebrews. Some are uncharitable erough to say, that the Jews cannot alibi J to lc*e two days in the week; and as Saturday, their Sabbath, is one of the best days in the wfek lor trade, and Sunday, our Sabbath, is ere of the worst, it is proposed to adopt the Sunday of the Christians. And this latter plan has already been put into practical use by Rev. Di. Raphael, who on Sunday last preached on the death of the late Judah Touro. "Touro is the Girard of the Jews, and at the title ol iiis death he distnbuted his immense walth among the Hebrews in America, and an annual service is held in commemoration of his buieficeiice. Jt was a marked sight to see the synagogue of the Israelites open on the day sa ctvd as that on which the Lord arose from the dtad. It may indicate the near approach of that time when those who crucified the Son of the Highest, shall through their descendants say, 'Blessed is he that cometh in the name ot the Lord!' ,We learn from the Hartford Times that the Emperor of Russia had contracted with Cijlonel Sam Colt for a large amount cf machi mry lor making arms, and a part of it hasalrea dy been shipped- He has also employed Colo nel Colt to build for him two steain engines, suitable for driving this machinery.
