BEDFORD GAZETTE. 3 BEDFOK FRIDAY, JI IVE 8, I 860. B. F. Meyers, Editor and Proprietor, FOR GOVERNOR: HENRY D. FOSTHK, OF WESTMORELAND COUNTY. "The principle of the tariff of 1342. as far as related to the manufacture of IRON, of any description, or of every description was NOT TOO HIGH,"— HEJ\RY D. FOSTER. The Irrepressible Conflict. ABRAHAM LINCOLN, the Black Republican aominee for President of the United States, is the author of the annexed treasonable, fanatical and revolutionary doctrine. It was announced by him prior t<v Seward's "Irrepressible Conflict" Roches ter speech, the leading idea of which it embodies, end was the basis of all his arguments against Ste phen A. Douglas in IS-SB, by whom he was defeated for the U. S. Senate. Let the conservative masses reflect upon this startling doctrine, and let patriots shrink from it as from a serpent whose sting is death ! "We are now far into the fifth yearsince apolicy was initiated with the avowed object and confident promise of putting an end to slavery agitation Under the operation of that policy, that agitation has not only not ceased, but has constantly aug mented. In my opinion, it will not cease until a crisis shall have been leached and passed. A house divided against itself cannot stand. I believe this government cannot endure permanently half slave and half free. Ido not expect the Union to be dis solved—l do not expect the house to fall—but Ido expect it will cease to be divided. It will lecome all one thing or all the other. Either the opponents of slavery will arrest the farther spread of it, and place it where the public mind shall rest in the be lief that it is in the course of ultimate extinction, or its advocates will push it forward till it shall be come alike lawful in all the States, old as well as new—North as well as South." $/§& DELEGATE ELECTIONS. i Pursuant to rules adopted by the Democratic party of Bedford county, at their regu lar Meeting held in February, 1856, which roles are now in force, the Democratic Vigilance Committees of the several townships and boroughs of Bedford county, are hereby requested to give written notice that elections will be held in their respective dis tricts, on SATURDAY, THE 16TH DAY OF JUNE, nexi, for the purpose of selecting two delegatesjfrom each district, to represent such district in the com ing Democratic County Convention, said Conven tion to meet in the borough of Bedford, on TUES DAY, THE 19th DAY OF JUNE, NEXT, at 2 o'- clock, P.

FOSTER, the Democratic candidate tor Governor, is at VVashington, work ing lor the Tariff and the interests of Penn sylvania. He is making strong appeals to the Senate to pass the Tariff bill. How noble hi# conduct wnen contrasted with that ol his com petitor, Mr. Curtin, who instead of going to VVashington to help the Tariff on its passage, goes to Chicago and in company with such fanatics as GIDDINGS, CURTIS and other Aboli tionists, delivers windy and gaseous harangues in favor of Black Republicanism ! What sav the Tariff men of Bedford county tojsuch.canduct when their best interests are at stake ? "Harry of the West," is the man for Pennsylvania ! requested to announce that the Annual Exhibition ol the Allegheny Seminary, at Rainsburg, will take place on Thursday, the 21st inst. The Exercises will commence at 1 o'clock, P. M. " The Hit at the American Party." The organ o( the abolitionized Opposition i n this county, contained the tallowing remarks in regard to the "Republican" platform, in its issue ol June 29th, 1856 : "We publish the Republican platform in auother column. The Platform is all right in itself, except the kit at the American party contained in its last plank." Now, what was this "last plank" that gave such a hard ''hit" to Americanism ? We quote it from the same issue ol the same paper, word for word, as follows : "Resolved, That we cordially invite the affiliation and co-operation of the men of all parties, however different from us in other re spects, in support of the principles herein de clared, and believing that the spirit of our in stitutions, as well as the Constitution of our country, guarantees liberty of conscience and equality of rights among citizens, we oppose all legislation impairing their security." This was a mere "glittering generality" when compared with the direct repudiation of Americanism by the Chicago Convention, and it it a blow at the peculiar doctrine ol the "Americans," it was certainly levelled at random. Notwithstanding this, however, it was sufficient to arouse the ire of the then watchful Cerberus of Bedford county "Ameri canism." But, alas ! and alack ! for the "Sons of the Sires!" "Republican" Conventions can now meet and insult "Americanism" with out eveD so much as eliciting a bark or a growl from their former watcn-dog. That once ter rible mastiff has lost all his "native" teeth, and now shows nothing but the simon-pure African ivory. The Chicago Convention can just say what it pleases about Americanism and Cer berus swallows it right down. The sop thrown him by Tom Ford has wonderfully improved his appetite for Black Republican dictation.— He "strains"*tremendouslv at a "Constitutional Union" gnat, but swallows a Black Republi can camel with the greatest imaginable ease. He has no idea of becoming lean baying the declining moon of Americanism. Not he.— His eye is steadily directed to the main chance. What is principle to him, when money is sta ked against it ? The Chicago Convention might have put forty "Dutcn planks" in its platform, and might have manufactured them all out of "Dutch cheese," seasoned with splin ters of Lincoln's rails, and he would have gulp ed them all down his political gullet, without even winking an eye or making a wry face. HARMONY AT BALTIMORE. There is at present a fair prospect of a Harmonious result at Baltimore. The Rich mond Convention, called by the delegates who seceded from the Charleston Convention, will adjourn over to Baltimore, without making a nomination. Besides this, some of the best men in the South are using every effort to secure peace and harmony in the ranks. Even many of the seceders seem now to be anxio us for con ciliation. There will, doubtless, be a stormy time during the first sittings of the Convention, but we doubt not that better counsels will pre vail in the eQd. Should there be another se cession and should the extremists nominate a ticket of their own, we will at least notj be worse off than the Opposition who are already divided between rival candidates. In 1852, when Franklin Pierce was elected by such an overwhelming majority, the Democracy had a similar trouble to contend against in the South. A separate ticket was run in a number of the Southern states, and yet it came to nothing in the end. The same men were at the head of that movement that are now trying to disrupt the party and they succeeded about as well as they will in their present attempt. Stick a I pin there. BELL AND EVERETT. A sharp contest is at present going on in the Opposition ranks, between the so-called "Re publican" leaders and the old Whig and "A merican" champions that have recently been assisting the "Republicans" in fighting their battles. Nearly all ol the latter repudiate Lin coln and the "Dutch plank," and go for Bell and Everett. In the Eastern part of this state, in New Jersey, New York and Rhode Island, this is especially the case. We are informed that in Philadelphia alone, the Bell ticket will run half, if not more, of the Opposition vote. In Montgomery, Carbon, Luzerne, Huntingdon and Bla<r, the "Americans" are bitterly opposed to the Chicago nominations, and even here in Bedford, we have signs of an out-break in favor of Bell and Everett. We know of some fifteen, or twenty, of the most respectable men in the Opposition ranks in this borough, who have declared themselves for Bell. We hear of numbers in other parts of the county. In fact there is no telling but what the Demociacy will be called upon to fighi Bell instead of Lincoln. We hope the Opposition in this county will stick to Lincoln, for we think "Old Abe's" abolitionism, togeth er with his "Dutch plank," will operate most I effectually to cool the ardor of the faithful. NOT NATIONAL. One of the Resolutions contained in the Chicago" Republican" platform when read to the Convention, referred to the party as the "National Republican Party," whereupon JUDGE JESSUP, of this state, Chairman of the Committee on Platform, arose and said that the word jYitional had no connexion with and was no part of the "Republican" name. The word was accordingly expunged, and the "Re publican" party now boldly sails under section al colors. This fact appears in the proceedings of the Chicago Convention as published in the Black Republican papers, and, therefore, can not be denied by the members of that party. Great Britain represented in the Chicago Republican Convention! It has frequently been charged upon the Black Republican party, that like its ante'.ype, the "blue light" Federal party, it is in close communion and sympathy with the British.— This charge has been well sustained by the evidence of circumstances, for instance such men as W. Lloyd Garrison, an unnaturalized Englishman, publishing papers and delivering j speeches in advocacy ol the election of John C. I Fremont, or the fact that the leaders of Black Republicanism proclaimed themselves in lavor of disunion and preached the doctrine of a higher civil law than the Constitution, or the connexion of RICHARD REALF, a British subject, with the Harper's Ferry raid, of which W. H. Seward, Joshua R. Giddings and other eminent "Republicans" knew long before it was attempted. But now we have positive evidence that Black Republicanism is buf the lineal successor of the Toryism of the Revolu tion. It has been ascertained that M. T. E. CHANDLER, a delegate to the Chicago Con vention and one of the Vice Presidents of that body, is a BRITISH SUBJECT, a resident of Canada East, and is not now and nev er was a citizen of the United States ! This is true, every word of it, and for a more detailed account ol the matter, we refer our readers to the article on the first page, headed "the Chica go Convention," copied from the columns of the Philadelphia Inquirer, air Opposition pa per. buch is Black Republicanism, aod by such means has ABRAHAM LINCOLN been foisted upon the people as a candidate for the highest office in their gift ! Omy country, has it come to this ! LIFE OF GEN. FOSTER.—MESSRS. JAMES KEENAN & Co., Greensburg, Pa., have just issued in pamphlet farm, a LIFE OF HENRY D. FOSTER, the Democratic candidate for Gover nor of Pennsylvania. It is gotten up in good style, and should be in the hands of every wor king Democrat in the State. Local and Miscellaneous. . .. .EARLY VEGETABLES.—MR. JOHN FLEM ING, Gardener at the Bedford Springs, brought us, a few days ago, some fine specimens of full grown peas raised by him the present season. Accompanying these extraordinary peas, was a stalk of asparagus an inch in thickness. Truly the soil of Old Bedlord is productive ! ... .We learn with profound rpgret, of the decease of NICHOLAS KEGG, ESQ., of Juniata "tp. MR. KEGG was a useful and highly respected citizen. We knew him intimately for tne last few years, and found in his character the vir tues of a Chi istian gentleman, and frequently had occasion to admire his kindness of heart and generous nature. May he rest in peace ! "RAIN! RAIN! RAIN! Will it never cease raining ?" is the halt-angry question upon the lips of many, who have grown somewhat weary of the pluvious state of the weather The fact is that we have had a little more mois ture than we could relish, but June rains are infinitely preferable to June frosts. So, like the old fellow who, being troubled at intervals with a number of painful diseases, thanked bis stars that he had not all of them at once, let us be thankful that we have nothing worse to com plain of than the bounteous rain. . .. .The Regimental Parade at Bloody Run, on Tuesday last, came off in fine style. Three companies were in attendance, the Hopewell Riflemen, Bloody Run Blues and Clearville Blues, and also a portion ol the Cumberland Valley Blues. The regiment was formed into line by Adjutant Gump, and commanded by Col. Thomas W. Horton, assisted by Lieut. Col. Tate, iMaj. Dibertand Capt. Jos. Reed, Aid to Col. Horton. The new company, Clearville Blues, Capt. Mixell, was organized by Maj. Sansom, the the Brigade Inspector, and made a very fine appearance. Ihe Clearville boys deserve great credit for the manner in which they have got ten up their company. Military displays are becoming quite fashionable in Bedford county, and we think the Major General of this Divi sion should recognize this spirit of enterprise on the part of our Military, by giving us an en campment during the summer, or fall. What you, General Bell ? ... .A SLY FELLOW.— We observe by the list of arrivals at the Cross Keys Hotel, McC'on nellsburg, as published in the Fulton Republi can, that "Dr. C. JV*. Hickok and wife," of Bedford, have been stopping at that place. The Doctor is a sly fellow and needs watching. He has returned to this place and insists that the registration at the "Cross Keys," is incor rect. We see, also, that he has subsidized the local of the Fulton Democrat, who pretends to correct the Hotel register. ... .It will be seen by reference to an arti cle in to-day's Gazette, over the signature of JOHN CESSNA, Esq., that that gentleman declines to allow bis name to be used in con nection with the Democratic nomination fer Congress. Mr. Cessna's letter breathes the spirit of a true Democrat, and its temper is eminently worthy of emulation on the part of those who someTimes suffer their personal ambition to override the interests and welfare of their party. ....The Democratic delegate elections which are to come off in a short time through out the county, should be conducted in a spirit of harmony and mutual concession. It should be the object of the County Convention to pro mote the interests of the party, rather than of individuals. Let there be a good ticket nominated, the merits and demerits of the re spective candidates fairly and fearlessly weighed in the balance of justice, and all will be well. ... .Flat, stale and unprofitable,—the meet ing ol the "Spotties," on Tuesday night.— "Spotty Lincoln" and the modern Hannibal are a heavy dose tor the Opposition. ... .See advertisement of Shires' Machine Shop in another column. Mr. Shires' manufac tures give great satislaction. [Gr~The following is from one of the firmest and most influential Democrats in the Northern part of the county : STONERSTOWN, June 2d,'60. MR. MEYERS : I beg leave to introduce the name of Mi chael I luke, Esq., of Hopewell township, as a candidate for County Commissioner. He has always been a Democrat, working tor the party and advancing its interests in his own locality, has never asked for the most humble office, and the township in which he lives (Hopewell) has heretofore been overlooked by the Democra cyin selecting candidates. He is deserving, com petent and reliable, and will make an economi cal officer, as the management of his own do mestic affaus charl)* demonstrates. Yours Truly, LIBERTY. TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF BEDFORD COUNTY : Several inquiries have been made of me du ring the last few months, upon the subject of the next nomination tor Congress in this Dis trict. Until recently I have not given a deci ded answer to such inquiries. 1 desire to say, now, to my friends of the party, that I am not a candidate for any office, nor do I wish my name used in connection with the Congressional nomination. The District can and must elect a Democrat next fall, and no matter what candidate shall be nominated, my aid will be cheerfully given to promote his election. To my friends who have urged me for the posi tion, I return my hearty thanks. JOHN CESSNA. BEDFORD, June Bth, 1860. Douglas and Lincoln. A great deal of stress is laid, by the Repub lican press, upon the alleged fact that ABRA HAM LINCOLN, in the great contest for the Uni ted States Senatorship in 1858, carried the pop ular majority, although DOUGLAS succeeded in carrying the Legislature. There is a slight mis take in this. The alleged fact is not a fact. The vote of Illinois in 1858 on the Stat? ticket was for MILLER, Republican candidate for State Treasurer, 125,4-62 ; for FONDEY, Douglas Democrat, 121,889; DOUGHERTY, Buchanan Democrat, 5,021 —making the result: For Miller, Rep 125,462. " Fondey, Doug. Dem. 121,889 " Dougherty, Bucb 5,021 126,910 Actual Democratic maj. 1,4-4-8 In 1856 MILLER'S major ity, as a candidate for the same office was 21,032 ; so that the ac tual Democratic gain in 1858, when DOUGLAS slumped the Slate against LINCOLN, was 22,- 480. A Democratic colemporary well observes, "Now, it being a fact that Mr. DOUGLAS pitted' against Mr. Lincoln did wipe out a Republican majority of over 21.000 in two years in a sin gle State, when the contest was only for the Ser.atorship, what do our Republican friends suppose would become of Mr. Lincoln and his party at the end of another two years, when the contest is for the Presidency of the United States f Surely, their fate will be like that of Pharaoh's host in the Rec! Sea." KICKING AGAINST THE PLATFORM The Dai ly News, one of the organs of the so-called "People's Party" in Philadelphia, hesi'ates a bout supporting the nominations of the Chicago Convention. It takes great offence at what°it calls, in derision, the "Dutch plank'' in the Republican platform, which it considers a mean and truckling attempt to barter away the "A mtjrican" vote of the Eastern States for the German vote ol the North-west. The News says: "This we esteem to be simply an insult to the American element, which constitutes so jiowerlul a portion of the People's Party in Pennsylvania, and as such we not only eschew it, but denounce it is a proposition unfit to be put forth by any body of men professing to act in opposition to the Loco Foco party. The day has not yeCcorae when Americans will give up their Shibboleth, and although it may be es teemed as expedient and prudent to postpone a discussion of these distinctive viws, until the great question of "black or white" shall be de termined and disposed of in some way the gentlemen who voted in this plank, as well as the crowd which dictated it, may rest assured that the paramount doctrines of Americanism must and shall be respected." THE IRREFRESSJBLE CONFLICT. —The testi mony of the Albany Evening Journal (Thur low Weed's paper, Seward's organ) in regard to the peculiar stripe of Abram Lincoln's politics, is presumed to be disinterested, and therefore is of some value. Says that paper : "Conservatism, in its modern and odious sense, has no representative in Mr. Lincoln.— His war against injustice, inhumanity and sla very is of the "irrepressible" sort, and he has no sympathy with those who would whisper epithets against oppression in any form if he be a rough diamond he is a sound one. He holds time-servers and cowards in contempt, and would as soon "cotton" to a pickpocket as to a "doughface." This is his attitude now. Hhe be as wise as he is thorough, he will permit no titmd friend to swerve him lrom his position, and will "take no step backward" to conciliate those "whose touch is deatti:** STAND FROM UNDER. The friends of Seward in New York, a pow erful majority of the Abolition party, are all ready manifesting symptoms of a grand bolt. The Tribune, anti-Seward organ, thus sneering ly announces the fact and threatens its authors: "We hear that some prominent members of the Albany lobby, who have hitherto professed to be Republicans, express their determination to bolt the Chicago nomination. This is *ood news. If a few members of the Legislature of the same stripe would join them, it would be a great blessing to the party, and a great help to the ticked." CHURCH DEDICATION. The second Quarterly meeting, for Pleasant Grove circuit, will be held at Centrevilfe Bed ford Co., Pa., on the 23d and 24th of this month, at which time, the new Church, will be dedi cated to the worship of God. A number of Ministers are expected to be present. The com munity generally are invited to attend. CHAS. KALBFUS THE RAILROAD EXCITEMENT. The Railroad Convention recently held at Harrisburg, the object of which seemed to be to demonstrate the feasibility of a proposed pro ject to connect New York by a direct line with some point on the Connellsville Railroad, has i created quite a buzz among capitalists and o ! thers interested in rival routes. The annexed article, which we take from the Cumberland (Md.) Bulletin, serves to show that Baltimore is for once becoming slightly awake to ber inter ests, and gives a faint assurance that probably her monied men will get their eyes open bv and-by. We can assure the Baltimore Patriot that the object of the Harrisburg Convention will not "evaporate in promises and resolves," and even if it should, there is a power before which the financiers of Baltimore may well fear and tremble, whose interest it will be to extend the Bedford Railroad, now in course of con struction, westward to the great coal basin through which the route of the Connellsville Railroad passes. The Pennsylvania Railroad Company reaps already an immense revenue from such "feeders," and we doubt not that if the people of Somerset and Bedford would put their shoulders to the wheel, they could reason ably expect todeiive such assistance from that Company as would insure the making of a road over the fifty miles between this place and the Somerset county coal regions. As we announced several weeks back a con vention has beeen held at Harrisburg, Pa., to divert the Connellsville Rail-road connection, eastward and northward from its original design, which was to connect with the Baltimore and Ohio Rail-road, here at Cumberland. That this has not been done or cannot be done is cer tainly a misfortune for Cumberland, and now, as may be seen from the movements on the part of northern interests this prize is in a fair way ol being for ever lost to Cumberland. We com mend the following remarks from the Baltimore Patriot of a late date to the attention of the rea der. Baltimore has many natural and acquired advantages but like Cumberland she too is some times rather slow to move. The New Yorkers, says the Patriot, have been sirring up the Pennsy Ivanians through the tract o! country leading from Harrisburg to the South-West, and so well have they succeeded that the latter have recently held a grand rail road meeting at Harrisburg, to find out wheth er they cannot circumvent the stirrers up in their designs. The question is, who shall have the trade of the region Soulh-West of Harris burg, Baltimore or New York ? The New Yorkers are determined to build a road from Harrisburg to the South-West, and the Cham bersburgeans want to connect the Tape Worm Road with Connellsville. Wh'ch ever party is first in the field, will get the trade. The New Yorkers already own the Lebanon Valley or Dauphin Railroad, and what they want now is to extend it South-Westward. It will cost them over a million, but they will nevertheless build it, and unless those on the spot step in, and make the connection at once from Thad Stevens' Tape Worm Road to Con nellsville, they will get the "cream oflhejoke." It is proposed to use the charter for the Road from Chambersburg to Connellsvillp, and it is believed, that the counties of Fulton, Bedford, and Somerset, will subscribe lipavily towards the capital, if the balance can be gotten else where, say, in this city. It is suggested that the Tape Worm Road be tapped West of Gettysburg, by a line direct to Chambersburg, (which ha* already been surveyed,) thence to Burnt Cabins, 30 miles, and thence to Connells vi lie. This would give a Central Road from Balti more to Wheeling and Pittsburg, about equi distant between the Baltimore and Ohio and Pennsylvania Central, and some fifty miles shor ter, while it would penetrate the coal and iron regions of Pennsylvania, and drain to Baltimore the vast trade of those sections of Pennsylva nia. Here is an opportunity for Baltimore mer chants and capitalists to strike a blow in favor of our city, which can never be availed of a gain. What the Harrishurg meeting did, we do not know, but presume it evaporated in prom ises and resolves. Ten monied men from this city, who would repair to Chambersburg, and examine Bhis route for themselves, mine to build the road under the Connelisville charter, would speedily consummate the desi red connection. But the chances are, that the New Yorkers will tap the Chambersburg re gion by a line from Harrisburg to Burnt Cabins, 72 miles in length, much of it on trussel work and thiough tunnels, while we shall be talking about the matter. We hope these hints will meet the eye and attention of our capitalists, and that they will not let the matter sleep. Baltimore is alwavs far too sleepy for her best interests. P- S.— But we of Cumberland very much doubt whether it is as greatly to the interest of Baltimore to consummate the above arrange ment as it would be to complete the Connelis ville road to this point, and it certainly would not result advantageously to the Baltimore and Ohio Rail-road. The Bulletin wants to see the Connelisville road extended to Cumberland—a double track hence to Baltimore—railroad or cood turn-pike northward, and the same south ward with a bridge over the Potomac,—and reasonable way freights and free tickets to ed itors on the Baltimore and Ohio rail-road. [rr-Keep it before the people, that Hamlin, the nominee of the Republicans for Vice Presi dent, is and always has been, an open and deci ded free-trade man ! The Republicans of Penn sylvahia profess great friendship and zeal for a protective tariff, but they always support free traders for office. Thus, thej' nominated "tree trade Wilmot" for Governor in 1857, and now they nominate Hamlin, another free-trader for Vice President. What miserable hypocrisy Let the people of the Old Keystone, who a'r honestly in favor of a protective tariff, think of these facts, and then act.— Clinton Democrat.

D I E • On the 13th o 1 March, last, Mrs. Mary, wife of Mr. Frederick Sill, agd 18 years, 4 months and 16 days. Death is a scene with which we can never become lamiliar. In whatever form it may pre sent itself to our view, it is still appalling, and the heart must ever recoil at the idea of seeing those near and dear to it clasped in the icy em brace of Death. Our lamented friend was tried by Providence with lingering and severe affliction, and, though short her pilgrimage upon earth, she vet died m full maturity, having lived for God and eter nity. j Oh ! how reluctantly have not for.d parents and a devoted husband yielded up the precious ; treasure ; and yet howevei repugnant it may have been to the feelings, fhe mandate ofhi*h Heaven has oeen obeyed in restoring that form to its mother earth. She is gone, forever gone; no kindness, no sorrow of nature can re-anni mate the clay. But raised your thoughts from the grave in which you have deposited the body—and though the event has caused many painful sen sations, forget not, that it was ordered by a God of love. True, you cannot judge os His object in afflicting so grievously, yet rest asssured it will ultimately result in benefit.—This world is at best but a varied scene of trials and disap pointments—prolonged life is but a prolonga tion of sorrow and suffering. Regret not, then, that an inscrutable Provi nence has removed your friend from it ; the pangs of death are now over, and she whose loss you mourn as a companion—a mother for help less infancy—a daughter and friend, is now hap py in that spirit-land, where care can never reach her, for the Lamb is the light of it—and in His presence sorrow and sighing shall forev er nee away.
