IMst, 1860. Treason ! Treason J Treason J It has always been our opinion that the ob ject of W. L. Yaneev and other leaders of the bolters at Charleston, was to break up (he Dero oerat'e parlv for the purpose of allowing Lin coln to lie elected, s > that they would have a good excuse for maki.ig an attempt t > dissolve this Union. We do not soy, nor do we be lieve, that Mr. Breckinridie had, or has, any knowledge of Yancey &.Co.'s schemes. II? is, doubtless, their innocent victim. But the evi dence is now clear that a conspiracy has been formed between many of the leading suppor ters of Mr. Breckinridge and the Black Repub licans, to effect the election of Abraham Lin coln. We are informed on good authority, that a iide-dour arrangement exists between tlu Breckinridge and Lincoln Committees a! Wash ington, whereby they are enabled to frank such documents over the country as will best suit their dark and evil purposes. The Black Re publican Committee is flooding the country with the speech of BENJAMIN, of Louisiana, and the Breckinridge Committee sends its documents to R-publican clubs to insure their distribution. THOMAS B. FLORENCE, the member of the Breckinridge Committee for this State, last week, sent under his own frank, a large bundle of documents to the Bedford P. 0., directed to PETER H. SHIRES, who is the President of the Lincoln Club, of this jjtr.ee. How far this base conspiracy extends, we do not know, but we leei it our duty as a Democratic editor to warn Democrats to be on their guard. If we were the strongest Breckinridge .nan in the county, treason like this would make tis a friend of Mr. DOUGLAS. We refer to this matter more in sorrow than in anger, for surely we have fallen upon evil times, when our own friends are striving to destroy us. JUNIATA COUNTY. —The Democratic county Convention of Juniata county, has presented the name of Edsund S. DOTY, ESQ., ol that county, as a candidate for the Democratic nom ination for Congress in this district. MR. DOTY is said to be a man of bne abilities and great personal worth. Should the choice of the Con ference fall upon him, we doubt not the parly oi the district will yield him their earnest sup port. i The Railro?d BooDieraug. I The honest iiid itiMligeiil masses of the Op | position in this county, are completely disgus j t d with the i'fibrt of some of their leaders in i Bedford Borough, to prevent the completion ol the Bedford Railroad. They denounce the ! course ol their organ in this place, and declare tlj.it as the President of the Road, Mr.. SCHELL, his been assailed and Glided by that sheet, they h ill come forward and sustain; him a! the polls. | An exhibition ol this feeling among the Opposi -11 •! , was had in the Lincoln Club of this place, at its meeting nn Tuesday night list. Hon. S. i L. Russell addressed the Club, pouring a perfect storm of hot shot into (he malignant and un principled set ibbiers for Jordan's organ. Among othr-i things, he said that if Mr. Schell would he elected > Cmgress, '.heeditors ol that paper, in attacking him lor doing his duty as President ! of the Railroad Company, would alone be re \ sponsible for his success. 'I hey, said he, have made Mr. Scheil the Railroad candidate, and, j per consequenc-, Mr. McPherson the anti-Rail | road candidate. Mr. Russell's remarks on this j occasion, have excited quite .1 tiubbub in the Republican camp, and it Jordan is. Co. persist I in their vilification of the men who are honest* | Iv striving to complete the Railroad, there is no j telling where this matter will end. Thus have ; the weapons raised by Jordan fx Co. against Mr. j Schei! and the Directors of the Railroad Com pany, recoiled upon them Ike so many Bootne ' rangs it: the hands of men unaccustomed to han dle them. Significant. I IVJI, H. POLK, brother of Ex-President Polk, is one of the Douglas Electors in Tenes i see. ; ALEX. H. STEPHENS, the great Georgian I orator and statesman, the man who was Mr. Buchanan's great general and leader in Con gress. in favor of the passage ol the L-comnton j Constitution, is one of the Douglas Electors at large for the State ol Georgia. Bath Polk and ; Stephens will canvass th. ir states for Dou ' gla. i EX-GOV. FOOTE, of Mississippi, who de feated Jefferson Da vis, for Governor, in I8">1, when tlie same issues that are now being Cis- cussed, were involved in the canvass, is stump ing tiie Southern states lor Douglas. PJERRE SOULE, of Louisiana, latt Minis ter to Spain, and with Mr. Buchanan in the Ostend conference, is strong for Douglas. ALBERT RUST, Member of Congress from Arkansas, is for Douglas. A. J. HAMILTON, Membet of Congress from Texa, is for Douglas. W. Y. BROWN, M. C\, EX-GOV. WJCK LIFFE, JOHN 0. MASON and Ex-Senator ARCHIBALD DIXON, of Kentucky, are for Douglas. All the Democratic Congressmen from Mis souri, are for Douglas. SENATOR CLING MAN and U. S. District Attorney DICK, of North Carolina, are for Douglas. Ex-Congressman CABELL, of Florida, is for Douglas. JOHN FORSYTH, late minister to Mexico, Congressmen Cobb and Houston and E\-Gov. WINSTON, of Alabama, aie for Douglas. Significant, is it not ? Who says the Little Giant has no strength in the South ? GEN. H. D. FOSTER. —The Centre Democrat, (the Republican organ of Centre county.) has at length concluded to pitch in to Gen. Foster, cur worthy candidate, fir Governor.—We take the'suhjoined extract from that paper of the ! 9th oh. "A finer gentleman than General Foster can not Le found in t!ie State, and it is an infernal outrage for his parly to treat him so shabbily. He is the model of an American gentler; in and sta'esmaii. He is an upright consistent man, and such men are always welcome 11 <ur ranks. One thing we will promise him if lie joins us we will at least treat him decently, and that is more than the Democrats are doing <Ol him at •lie piesent lime. We are sorry that we are placed in a hostile positon toward Ger.eia! Fos t-r, for we like him very much, and come what may, uo word of abus<* shall ever escape our lips when speaking of him, nor will we stand bvasid hear him traduced bv any one.— The man that maligns him in our presence, will he told he is mistaken —if he repeats his abuse he will he told lie is a iiar—and il he reiterates a third time, that which we know to be false, we will smash his teeth down his liiroa'. For Gen. Foster we have ihe warmest feelings of personal friendship." ANOTHER FIRE. —On Saturday morning last, between the IIOUIS of one and two o'clock, the siabie of MR. L. JAMISON, in the eastern part of town, was discovered to be on fire. A nuni ber of people at once repaired to the spot; but it was soon found impossible to save the buil ding, or any of its contents. Two fine hoises were horned to death. Mr. Jamison's loss is estimated at about SI9OO. As fires ate becom ing a little too fashionable far comfort, we fhink it is time something should be done to prevent them. Would it not he proper for flie Town Council to offer a reward f>r the detection and apprehension oi'inceuditries ? CONGRESSIONAL CONFERENCE.— We are re quested to announce that the Democratic con ferees appointed by ihe Democrats of the seve ral counties composing this Congressional dis trict, will assemble at Chambersburg, on Tues day, the 11th of September next, for the pur pose of putting in nomination a candidate fur Congress. DETARTURE or THE PKESHJIVNT. — President Buchanan, Judge Black and suite, left Bedford Springs on Tuesday morning lasi, en mute for Washington.

'LITTLE B:fiKS'' r'OR THE LITTLE GIANT! CUHEBERLA.PJB VALLEY SPEAKS ! The following account of the movements ol the Democracy in Cumberland Valley :p., will be interesting and cheering to Democrats all over the Slate and the Union. That loyal and true Democratic district is widely known among Demounts for its solid majorities and unwaver ing adherence to regular nominations and tin" true Democratic faith. All honor to the gal ,ant band that so firmly maintain the right. Mr. Am tor ; Believing it to be i>r the mteiest of the D'mociatic Parly in B-clford Count v. to know tie real sentiments ol Cum berland Vuiley Township in the pnsent cam paign, tin' democracy were called toge'hei on Satunia- evening, 25th inst., when it was u i.animously resolved to institute a D >uglas l lub, ol which Lewis A. May waiVlected President, and a Vice President was chosen from each sub-district in the Township. J. 13. Anderson was elected Secretary of the Club, and a Com mittee appointed to liiaft resolutions expressive ol the sense of the community, which reported as billows: We, the citizens of Cumberland Valley Tp., believing the doctrine of Non-intervention |as represented by STEPHEN A. DOL'GLAS in li s debates in Congress,on the subject ot the government of the Territories, to he the only true Democratic doctrine, and b-dieving the Cincinnati Platform as explained to Hie people ot Pennsy Ivania in 1856, and at the present j time, to be correct in princip'e • and further more, regarding the Convention that nominated r STEPHEN A. DOUGLAS as the only regular Convention, according to the rules and mages of the Democratic Parly : Therefore, Resolved , That we cordially ap- I prove the nomination ol STEPHEN A. DOUG ! LAS, and HfiRSCHEL V. JOHNSON for the ' offices of President and Vice President of tne | United States. Resolved, That we approve of the nomina tion ol Henry D. Foster for the office ol Gov . trr.or ol this Sta'e, Resolved, That we consider a modification of the present Tariff as necessary for the purpose I ol lai.-ing sufficient revenue lor the support <d the Government, and are in favor of a proper discrimination for the protection of the manu facturing interests of Peiiusyivani-E. Resolved, That we will exeil OUTSPIWS to get the largest majority at iii j coming elections thai this Township has ever given to any cgo j riidate. Resolved, That our thanks aie due to the HON. JOHN CESSN A lor the able .services lie lendered at Charleston and Baltimore in the cause of Non-inter vent i in. The speakers were John Blair, Dr. H. Hud son, J. Snider and T. ii. Cessna, the latter of whom has just launched on the sea of Politics, and although young in years, bids fair to excel a? a public speaker, if we may judge from the ease and elegance of ids diction, the truly logi cal method in which lie arranges his discourse, and the almost imperceptible manner in which he leads us to adopt his conclusions. As the meeting closed lor the night, three en thusiastic cheers were given for the cause—and from my observation in traveling over the town ship, 1 can safely say that you can rely on a United Demociacy 111 "LITTLE BERKS." Prom the Missouri Republican. JjEOFJr.u SpsiMis, Pa., August 14, 1860. Nearly three weeks ago I left St. Louis for this point, \ia Terre HaulP, Crestline, Pitts burgh, Huntingdon and Hopewell. From lUt> degrees at St. Louis, the thermometer fell to 7U degrees at the Springs, where I arrived with my family the second day of my journey. We enjoyed our rest in the sleeping cars of the Terre Haute road and at the Huntingdon Ex change Hotel, far better than we could have done at home. The trip over these to? is in warm weather is delightful. We felt nothing more of the heal after nrdit-fill, and the trac -s are in capital o; !er. This is a tit lightful spot; the nights are al ways cool, and the dr. ale in the u urines! davs is bracing and salubrious. The valley where the bpnngs are situate is about 1800 feel nb we tlie level oi ttie tea, and the suirounding moun tain scem-iy tsol rare beauty. The Springs aie in a gorge or a mountain pass, not over4oo feet in width, and on this narrow plain the ho tel building and court yard van !, almost sur rounded on three sides by mountains covered with native forest trees. There are accommo dations here of the best quality for eight hun dred persons, and the fare is excellent. The rides and drives are romantic and picturesque, and a variety of amusements charm away the lazy hours. bt. Louis has been repres-nled here this sea son by General Coaiter and family, Benj. A. Soulard, Esq., and family, Air. Ci.-t and family, Mr Jiokohl and family, 11. A. Hill, Esq., and family, Mrs. Switzer, and some others whose names Ido not reccollect. All I hose with Whom I have spoken are charmed with the cli mate and the waters. Tne great mass of visit ors are from the Eastern cities, and she majority of them are invalids'who come here under med ical advice: !t is claimed that the Bedford Sining lias peculiar virtues. The following F the published analysis of one quart of the wa ter : '2O grs. sulphate magnesia, 4 grs. sulphate of lime, 2i grs. muriate of soda, i' gr. muriate of Jmie, 1 i grs. carbonate of iron, 2 grs. carbo nate of time, and IBi cubic inches of carbonic rv. id gas. Many eminent physicians of Phila delphia and Baltimore send iheir patients here far the cuie. There is no doubt of tfie bene ficial e/lrct of these waters in a great variety of chronic diseases of the stomach, liver and kid neys. VVondei/ul cures are performed every seasrfti. We have been inactive spectators of I hp great political confest, which closed last week in Mt*- souri, ar.d ttie disastrous eflectf of (he disunion secession nominations, has heen manifested very clearly, throughout your Ltote as tar as heard Irorn. It is generally understood here, that the secession nominations, are merely a continua tion of the treasonable scheme of disunion, bold ly proclaimed at the jast session of Congress, bv Southern Democrats in the Senate and House, and carried out by a treasonable alternpt to pre vent the election of a Speaker. After the nom ination of Mr. Douglas, there could be no appa ient purpose served by the secession nomina tions, other than the defeat of the regular Dem ocratic nominees and the almost inevitable tri umph ol Messrs. Lincoln and Hamlin. Not a member of the Secession Convention pxpected to elect the victims nominated for the sacriSce I but the design wj- to divide the party—to de feat Air. Douglas, and to give the greatest I chance for success to the Black Republicans. The Bell and Everett chances were regarded then as desperate. The motives that led to ttus seccersion tiea-on ai-* thus made manifest.— | The voiy men who declared at (he last session ! ol Congress ibat the electionof a BJa k Republi j can President, Would authorize a dissolution of the Union, uriite with their co-cott.-pirißors to divid" and destroy the Democratic parly, and i aid thereby the .• clion ot Lincoln and Handm. It therefore the Secession Democrats were sin ; cere in their solemn declarations made in both ! Houses of Congress during the late session,and I if they had any design in the nomination ol John C. Breckinridge, they must have known that their policy tended directly towards the r lectionol Lincoln and Hamlin, and would fur nish them, the Sec-etiers, with the excuse for ! a treasonable attempt to dissolve the Union, nn <:i the electi in of a Black Republican President. There were doubtless other motives, but this was (he main secret object ol the managers of : Hie Secession Convention ; and the Convention itself was hut one of the acts in a tragedy— th uijiri plot of which was designed to represent j the destruction ol the Republic, by the drssolu | tion of the Union. This arclMreasoc has been i contemplated since 1850, and the unexpected i failure of the conspirators, to defeat the nomi • nation of Air. Douglas, hastened them to a more I direct accomplishment ol their purpose than ; they desired.

T. DA UGHERTY, of this pluce, for a copy ol the following interesting and instructive arti cle : iVfw ind Cumpltfp IrraugfiHfnls for lite Shipmeuf of Broad Top ( uai on ihv Pcitt:- sjlvania and Reading liailroatfo. The Huntingdon ami Broad Top Railroad which constitutes tlmsnle outlet from the Broad Top (semi-bituminous) coal basin, intersects with the Pennsylvania Railioad at Hunting don, 97 miles from Harrisburg, when- aiso it has lacilities for loading coal into boat-, upon the Pennsylvania Railioad Company's canal. The water-line iioni Huntingdon, ov.-r which the coal is carried to tidewater markets, pursues the Juina;a river lo the Susquehanna and the Susquehanna livei to its juiictnn with the Chesapeake Bay, bv one route, whilst anoth er route, deflecting east horn the Susquehanna at Aliddietown, pursues the ( man t ana! to Reading and the Schuylkill Canal to this city. I tie rail-line troin Huntingdon, bv one ronte, is over the Pennsylvania Railroad to tins ci'\, whilst troin its connection \> ;'!i the Pennsvlva tiia Railroad at Harrisburg, by i's Lebanon ley Branch, liie i'hiladelphia and Reading Railroad opens anotliet ioule to 'lns city. With ail these outlets, however, tlm Broad Top coal interest have felt the want of a'satis factory working programme for the transporta tion ol their coal to tile-water : yet, notwith standing the difficulties which beset them be tween their own load and their customers I>r their mineral fuel, they have preserved in es tablishing a character for their cea! in the mar ket, ami in adding largely to th • quantity l >r warded each year ; till now, Broad I'op coai it not only a favorite but is a preferred coal for n.an v uses, in the general maiket : whilst, at the fame tune, the Broad Top region ha- arisen to Hie rank ot a competitor of the Cumberland re gion, in all the tide-water cities east of italti iii'jrf. Having attained to this position, it only re mained tor the Broad Tup interest to secure tor their cm! an outlet to tidewater over the best of ail the routes, so that with an efficient trans nortatmn programme working in tin ir favor, they might the more ranidly it ci'-a-e j, ru . duct: ol ol their coal at ill- tr.iiies, an ! qui; ken its contmmp'fon in the n ark-t. An i t.b side rat urii, we .ire iiappv tu announce, the v ha compassed tlrough the co-operative action of the Pennsyivarua and the Philadelphia and Ke i.iii'i: Riil: >a 1 Companies, vhv tiave agi-ed to furnish three bundre I new eight-wheel ten dun tar.- . also, to pro-rate the charges for trans portation over their lespective roads; Hi- mute from Huntingdon to the Richmond wharves in this city, compiises 97 milesof the P-nnsv!- \ania Railroad ami 112 miles ot the Reading Railioad, the gradients on the entire joint route being ivundei fully moderate, with long reaches of gentle descents ill the direction of the heavy trade. l ii j cars will differ from the eight-wheel cars built for carrying anthracite, in having in the bottom a drop the lull width of th car, with a sbeet-ifon lining on the sections of the l.ottom sloping down from the hack and front, to the trap through which the load fails, when Hie contents are discharged. Jn the hard coal car the interior is hooper shaped, with the drop in the centre oj the bot tom, but in such a car tiie soft coal becomes packed and will not pass through when the drop is opened. Hence to avoid tnis difficulty the new cars will he lined with metal, and, as stated, provided with a drop, to which llie sides descent.! vertically, and the bottom slopes down hum the ends of the tar. The new cars will be furnished wuh steel springs and Lightnr's box : in short, they will combine the Pennsylvania Railroad truck, with liie Reading Railioad soft coal car body. For some cme past Broad Top coal lias been passed over the Reading Railroad to Richmond, and the route has beer, jo satisfactory to ail parlies, that a special equipment has been ur det ed. The diversion of the Broad Top coal trade, over ill* 1 Reading Railroad to the Delaware at the Richmond wharves in this city, should stim ulate the mining interests in the Lower Susque hanna coal basins, fo seek the great markets over ifie same outlet ; for certain we are, and as these columns testify we have long believed, that the Richmond terminus of the Readme Railroad is destined to become as well the en ttep it of the soft coals oI Pennsylvania, as of her hard^aothracites. — Mining Register. cratic papers for Douglas and two for Breckin ridge.
