TSie Bedford Gazette. AT HOME AND ASPtOAD. "Whither are we drifting —This is a ques tion that is often asked t.he "dear people" by anxious politicians, but w< p. .pound r, now . to the "Clerk of the Weather" whose record of the last two months shows so many might and sunshiny pages. We want to know whether we are "drifting" into the Southern latitudes, or • whether the discussion of Kansas aihurs has only temporarily frightened "grim-visaged Winter" from our shores. Has the "King of Frost" got the "panics" and have the snow banks "suspended," too, like the other hanks? Has old Boreas gone into liquidation, that we have so much rain and no snow, or has the growling of the "Wall Street bears disturbed the equanimity of the Pole Star and thus brought us into a warmer climate 1 ■ We want to know. To be serious, the state of the weather during the last two months has been astonishingly mild and pleasant. We hear of the farmers in various parts of the State being engaged in ploughing for their Spring Crops. In Somerset County, where live the "Frosty sons of Thunder," who but rare ly thaw cut of their snow-banks before May, we hear that maple sugar is being made and that some of the farmers talk about sow ing oats in a few days ! In "little Fulton" where dwe! | the "Thundering Sons of Frost" we .saw plough ing done last week. In shirt the weather, so far, has been so extianrdiiiarily summ-risb that we begin to despair of having any winter. We put our trust, however, in "Ground-hog-day." If that cannot turn the in favor Y Old Icicles, then—"lh-re is no use talking." : Printers' JYetef Letter.' —Chichester k Co., Philadelphia, have commenced the pn licalion of a periodical under 'tie above title, "the prin cipal object of which is to pr< > :>t to printers and publi f heis valuable information, relative to the 'Art preservative of ail arts,'' together with all new inventions in the printing art. at as ear ly a dale as they can be obtained." The *' News Letter" is a beautifully printed sheet k contains much ?' it is of interest to ifie craft. It is pub lished monthly t the rate of N 1.00 per annum. Encoumrring to printers. — The "News Let ter" has , t jittje article under the foregoing head in'wli'u h it is stated for the cotnfoit of the poor sons of Faustus, that "Lord Stanhope was a prin ter; Franklin was a printer; Heranger, the great French poet, was a printer: Thiers, the renown ed French historian, was a printer." And to make the ragged typo feel particularly good, the little article winds up as fallows : " If a brilliant star Were stricken from the dome of night, A printer's pre-s if planted there, Would hit the vacua no to a hair. And a"e, perhaps, a better light," Now, this may be supposed to be vei v "en couraging to printers," but we know that it is not half so much sons plenty of new advance paying subscribers. If "outsiders" doubt this, let them "jump into" the publisher's harness and be convinced. lie invite the attention of our readers to Gettys' A mbrotype Gallery where now are be ing taken the most beautiful, life-like pictures we have ever seen. Mr. G. is an Artist of the first class, and as he is permanently located here, deserv s the patronage of all. Rooms in the Exchange Building nearly opposite the Post Office. Public Docunu J Js, <S c.— Hon. Wm. P. Schell, J.S. Africa and Theo. Snyder, K-qs., of the State Senate Ab - rs. Hay and Castn-r, of the House, and 1). J. Chapman, Esq., of Philadelphia, will accept our thanks far their kind attention in sending us many and vaiu i *!<• documents. We a-cknoufledge the receipt of a copv of the "Congressional Directory for the first sess on of the Thirty Fifth Congress." from our attentive representative at Washington, Mr. Reillv, who will please accept our thanks for the same. 3T7" We ought to make a very liberal allow ance in discussing the political issues of the day, for the fact that for more than thirty-five years we have had a speci sof political North an; j a political South. The habit of a great public is not unlike that of an individual. Th v have a way of coloring subjects very similar . away of imbibing ppjudic-s and prejudging cas-s almost the same. Let us apply these suggestions to the Kansas controversy. There is in realitv in that controversy, as it now stands, not one element of the old slavery quarrel. It has dwindled down into a dispute about the construction of laws—whether the act of 185-1- conferred suffi cient authority upon the'people to authorize them to frame a State government ? whether j delegates elected by the people for specific pur- j poses are to be presumed to express the will of the latter ' Some few men, who never forget and never learu anything, still talk about the slave oligarchy in connexion with Kansas affairs as old soldiers fight their battles over and over again ; but in honest truth there is nothing of the slavery question left. There is not a conn- ! ty court in all this Union which is not railed upon to decide questions, from month to month, of more practical importance than that which is involved in the turrit rial issue now before the country.— Washington Union. NOTICE. —The following notice of Dr. Key sets Pectoral Syrup, is from the Evening Chron icle, published in Pittsburgh, Pa. If you have a Cough, go to Samuel Brown, Bedford, and at Ooh'in &.

We mav tiere ob— serve, as we mention no that this friend was out on election night. and anxious to hear theseivs from Maine, tarried long on the corners. The news came, but not until he had absorbed sufficient damp to give him the chills. Another friend invited him to take a glass of Scotch ale, which was put up in very black bottles. Our friend's thirst was hnsre, and was only quench ed after a number of empty bottles stood before him : a cold in the head wss the consequence, which consequence was in*eis hours by using Keyset's Pectoral.

Gov. EisStr's Great Speech. A Washington correspondent of the York Gazette, in his letter of the 21st ult., thus refers to the great speech of Gov. Bigler in answer to the ''Little Giant," upon the Kansas policy of the Administration: The great event of the dav was the delivery, this morning, of the great speech of Senator Bigler, upon the Kansas policy of the Adminis tration. Long before the hour of twelve, the tloor of the Senate, and the galleries, and every available stand-point were densclv crowded. The ladies' galleries were thronged with th fairest of the beautiful women, from far and near, of whom Washington is so justly proud— while the floor of the Senate was tilled with distinguished men from all parts of our great country. Among the latter J observed the imposing form of Attorney Genera! Black. Gen. G. VV. Bowman, of Bedford, the newly appointed Su perintendent of Public Printing, wasaiso pres ent, receiving the congratulations of tiis fiiend-, and Hon. W. H. Wide, of Pa., with a lvt of others. At one o'clock, the Hon. Win. Big ler took the floor. Gov. Bigler never looked better. Time lias but iighiiv touched his locks his face is rounded and full, and his firm and resolute manner, his dignity ol carriage, and im posing mien, give a majesty to his .retenc . His style is quiet, forcible, arid very impressive, and at times, when he yields to the force of his emotions, rising to thrilling hursts of impassion ed oratory. His able exposition, and lofty vindication, of the Kansas policy of the Admin istration, was listened to with quiet and earn est attention for nearly two hours. His telling points weie loudly applauded, and a murmur of approbation ran through the Senate. IVsuisvl vanians-, here, have cause, to-day, to feel proud of William Bigler, Tin: TEIBC.M: AS D THE HARPERS.—A very curious piece of literary maneuvering is just now being enacted in this city. Some time since th" Messrs. Harper purchased ol .Mr. Tbackeiav, for •32000, the advance sheets of his new novel, "The Virginians," to be published in their ma gazine. ihe Tribune, without leave or licens •, stole it, upon which the Harjieis retorted, when the Tribune slated tha' ihnj also had an origin al copy of the story. The Harpers, Ivmwer, doubted it, 3nd laid a trap to catch the immacu late organ of all the isms. They altered a lew unimportant words- in the next portion of it published, and waited to see whether the Tri bune would follow their copy or the original one which they pretended to have. They did not wait in vain, for the next day alter the at pearance of the story in the magazine, it appear ed in ihe 7 ribune verbuiimet lilir<Uim! Mere was a decided proof of the Tribune's dishonesty. Hut this is not ail : this morning the Tribune an nounces the publication of the portion appearing in the February number of Harper, and accuses that periodical of "mutilating" the „torv, "a fact,"continues the Tribune, "its publishers have boldfV avowed." This is about the c ol est piece of impudence we ttave ever met with. After stealing the story, and getting caught in the act, it brazenly turns around and charges the Harpers with "mutilating" the story, thus intimating to its readers thev can only get "The Virginians" in a correct farm in the columns of the Tribune'. This will do. It beats Uriah Heep all over.— JV. Y. Dmj Book. WILD CAT CUKCENCY AT THE WEST. —The folio wins from the Chicago Tribune oi January l9tb, is a sample of the complaints which till the Western papers : "Minnesota is the paradise of the feline tribe. As in Michigan in earlier days, they flourish with a vigor of growth, and length of claw, and sharpness of voice, that are nowhere eiseattain ed. 'J'tie latest litter, as noticed in the .St. Paul papers, consists of two kittens, one called tin- Central Bank, Gray, and the other vcleped the Charcoai Bank ot .Nowhere. The swindliru •■missions of both are endorsed by parties in St. Paul, and both are doubtless worthless. The peculiarity of tire notes of the Charcoal Bank is that they promise redemption, if presented to 'he ntterer, at his office, 'on the- first day of July'—not a day later or earlier. Who doubts that St. Paul and Minnesota are hard up, when such stuff can be used as a substitute for monev ? "lowa is but little better off than her north ern neighbor. We publish to day a letter from Davenport, in which the effect of .Nebraska money—they have no other in that region—is graphically described ; and we have, in the Galena .Idvertiser specimens of the prevailing currency at Dubuque, which we copy, for the delectation of those who never passed through a shinplaster era. Two specimens will suffi ciently jjdescrib- t lh e lot." WHY WE HAVE NO THUNDER IN THE WINTER. Prof. Espy, in his .Meteorological Report, thus explains why we have no thunder in the winter: If it be asked why we have no thunder in the winter, though the tops of the storm clouds rise even in this season to a region where the air is at least considerably charged with electri city, perhaps the answer may be found in this— | that the storm clouds in the winter are of great j extent, and of course the tension of the electri city, being extended over a very large surface, is very feeble : and the subsiance of the cloud being itself framed out of vapor much less dense than that ofsummer clouds, this tension may not be able to strike from one particle of the cloud to the next adjacent one : no general discharge can take place. Besides, even in the winter, during a very warm spell of ,weather with a high dew point for the season, we some times have a violent thunderstorm from a cloud of very limited horizontal extent, as the thun der clouds always are in the summer. Such a cloud is in reality an insulated pillar of hot ais, mingled with condensed vapor, having just given out into the air itself its latent caloric, causing the air at the top of this cloud, in many cases, to he 60 degrees warmer at its lop fhati the air on the outside at the same level. PICKPOCKET-! AT HARRISJIURG. —During the inauguration of Co v. Packer on Tuesday, Mr. Calhoun, of the H jse, had his pocket picked of some $225. Mr. Drake, reporter, also had his pocket picked of a large [>orte-ir.onnaie and some $lO. Col. G. T. Hummel lost a pocket book containing SSO and some valuable papers. FOREIGN NEWS.
