At no t ..ie iu '. history of our country was your ac- ' lion invested with deeper interest nor fraught with greater consequences. Pennsylvania is again the battle ground of the Union : and up on her decision in October n-xi, wii! depend in a great measure, the triumph or defeat of the Republican party in the November contest. Deeply impressed with this truth, the Demo cratic Stale Executive C mmitte** desirLr• f- Vto address you. It needs no lengthy argu ment at this time to oai! you to a sense of duty. In tile cri>is now impending, every 'rue rv.r:- ci can see at a single glance the pathway he should tread with unfaltering fiost-ps Ever since the separation of the National De mocracy at Baltimore, the S'ate Ommitt-e has earnestly labored to promote the union of tne Democratic party in Pennsylvania. It has -ought no oilier object, a has struggled to pro duce no other result. When the chasm yawn ed that threatened to engulf the rful orga nization which, in past, has -een able to contend successfully with lilt* l'-es of the Con stitution and the contemners of the equality r>f the States, the grent heart of the Ame'-ican peo ple was filled with dread, and the Democratic masses were overwhelmed with consternation. The Republican party viewed our internecine warfare with ili-disguised delight. Its leaders, confident of success, noioiy enunciated their dan gerous and treasonable sentiments. The advo cates of the odious doctrines of Seward, Sumner, mcoln and John Brown, became reckless and .-Cant. I hey believed that the prestige of suc cess which had crowned the laborsol the Read ing Convention was irrevocably broken, and ' h *\>' promptly made the Keystone Slate the 6-id oi their active and energetic exertions. On our soil the battle is to be fought, and with cur people the victory or defeat must be accom plished. In this emergency, the State Committee, ac tuated by leelmgs of patriotism, and prompted °nly by a wish to secure the triumph of the food old cause," endeavored to agree upon a course of action that would enable the Demo cratic masses to unite upon one Electoral ticket, ■ltd thus permit them to make a common effort •gainst the candidates of the Republican party. After much deliberation, a plan of union, was ogfeed upon, which, if faithfully executed, will unquestionably produce this patriotic result such a crisis it requires no words to prove 'be widom of any efiort that will firmly con solidate the opposition to our common jiolitical "nemy. It j s simply a question between Re publicanism and Democracy ; and, as such, it is • 'Jir.Rjitted with confidence to the calm good n e of the people of Pennsylvania. R cannot be denied that the union of the i Democratic party wili result in a brilliant tci j urnph in October. O that initial battle all nut energies must now be concentrated. We have a (.-ader worthy of our cause. With an enthu siasm never before equalled in any political as semulage, H„ liry D . Foster, ol Westmorland, | j was selected as our standard bearer in that im portant contest. Ife iiid not seek the nomina tion. He repeatedly declined being a candi ilite tor the blfice. When strugg.'ing partisans met at fG-ading to advance the interests ol tueu peculiar favorites, he r-.nained in the quiet re tirement ol his own home, with no th night ol personal advancement, and anxious nnlv lor the success. I Democratic principles. The' presen tation of tiis name to the Convention was met i by a prompt withdrawal, at tns urgent solicita tion. Lut when the voice ol the people unani mously proclaimed him the leader of the parly ! m his native Commonwealth, he did not refuse to obey the call to duty, yet seeking no prefe,- raent by anv word or act of his own! The rec ord of his lile is the record of a Pennsylvania patriot, in every position he has occupied, he has obeyed the instincts of his nature in labor ing for the goo I of those who gave him place and power. J'he purity of his private charac- : , ter; the ability which marks every act of his I : public file; the devotion he has shown to the i j industrial interests ol Pennsylvania in the nails' I of our National Congress and State Legislature: ' the z-ai lie h H ever brought to hear upon a!' questions involving the true o,licy of our State G ivertiment; atid the cons . vatism which has : always characieriz- J h.s views up in National issues, make hitn eminently worthy *of the sun- : i port and confidence oi : 'i who have at heart the abiding welfare of Pennsylvania freemen, in asking you to <io battle for such a champion, the State Committee iV-lstfMt it is only calling' : up.m vHI to guard and protect y-ir vital inter- ' ' 1 1 1 will ii t;.os appealed lotti vain.

STEPHENS UN Tllri STUMP- < the Hin. A. H. Stephens, of Georgia, has! already taken the stump for Douglas and Jotin- \ ' son. He made his fust speech at Augusta, on j 'he Ist of September. The telegraph fur- • j rushes us the following outline of his re- I marks : u Mr. Step ens .-aid he appeared reluctantly ! before the people, and only did -a because he i ' could not refuse the invitation of his old con stituents. The signs of the limes portend evil. Everything seems tending to national disrup tional and general anarchy. Whether tins tendency was to he arrested depended on the virtue, intelligence and patriotism of th>* peo ple of all parts of Ihe country in the present great crisis. He was for D >ug!as and J,,h.ns >n, the regular nominees. Whether Douglas re ceived two thirds of the electoral vte or not according to the usages of the party, he reci iv->,j ■;ie two thirds VI te of the conier,! inn. Th | two-third rule was adopted upon parliamentary understanding, such as is provided bv the rnii stitufion, to pass a law over the veto of the Pre- S"ient. Any other Construction is impractica-i .'bit*. Whether Douglas got two hundred and 1 twelve votes as asserted on one side, or one hun- i fired and fifty-four, as a.'itged on tfie other he ' (Do rolas) receive.) more than a two third 'vote si'-', seceders left. He (Stephens) suppor- • led the ticket because the candidates stood upon i the time honored platform ol non-itifirven- ! 'ion, the only principle which can preserve the ! i Union. The objections urged against Douglas j by the seceders, were that he refused to say that i it was ihe duty of Congress fo do what "they '■ wool i not do themselves. ; -D)g!as refused to say that it was the duty ! of Congres* to pass law Kt> protect shivery in! tfie Territories ; hence they oppose him, and re- ; fuse to vote for such a law themselves. Mr. Stephens defended Douglas against the charge} that he would not yield to the decision of the Supreme Court, and said that Douglas agreed \ with every principle decided in the Ored Scott case, but also insisted that (be point how fa- a territorial Legislature might constitutionally j regulate slavery had not been decided. N > case j involving this principle had hen t-fore the' court, fhe position of Douglas is that of per- j feet equality between Hit* citizens .f afl the Sta'es vi ith respect to the rights of persons and j property. Mr. Douglas believed a Terri-j torial Legislature might, by a system of laws, virtually exclude slavery. He (Stephens) dif-I ered with Mr. Douglas on this point, but it wa a matter of no practical importance because if the majority of the people of a Tenitoryl opposed slavery i' would not go there. Me saw no injury to the South resulting from it. fresh from the sod, and anxious fo secure a humming bird, caught a hornet instead. It stung him, when Pat in stantly exclaimed "Houly Saint Pathrick ! how hot his little! fut is." i BEDFORD, PA., FRIDA MORNING, SEPTEMBER 21,1560.

As he could ; no longer drink i:i quiet, he sniffed an image ; of himself, left the 1-gs hanging down between j ■ the staging where he was accustomed to work,! [ and sent one of his boon companions to move' ! 'he image a little two or three times a day, and ; take it away at noon and night. By means of j this deception, he drank, without the least j disturbance, a whole fortnight, the innkeeper i being aware ot the plot. The otiiceis came a- j round twice a day to look alter him, and see- j ing the well-known stocking which he was; accustomed to wear, suspected nothing wrong,' ar.d went their way, greatly extolling their new convert as the most industrious and con-- scientious painter in the 'vorld.

When you and I shall be no more; when 1 this glorious Union shall have gone to eternal i smash ; when Baroum shall have secured his ; last curiosity, at a great expense; then will the i historian dip his pen in a gorgeous bottle of blue : black ink, and write—"Edication was the crownin' glory of the United'n States'n."— Knickerbocker. Tjp*A country girl whose sisters had mar j ri"d badly was about to take the noose hei j self. "How dare you get married," asked a cousin | of hers, "after having before you the unfortunate j example of your sisters The young girl replied with spirit : ; "I choose to make a trial myself. Did you ! ever see a parcel ol pigs running to a trough of hot swill ? The firt one sticks in his nc3e, gets it scalded, and then draws back and squeals. The second burns his nose and stands squealing in the same manner. The third follows suit, ; and he squeals too. But still it makes noditl.-r --ence with those behind. They never take I warnmg of those before j but all in turn thrust i.n their t ses, jus! as it they hadn't got burnt or | squealed at ail. So it is with girls in regard to | matrimony—and now, cousin, I hope you are | satisfied." L*r.ct: MOSQUITOES. — Jo speaking r.f mn?- quitot s of a large s:z-*, seen by one of the party in a Southern lake, Lemon, (who was a sea faring [man many years,) remarked : "H eil, there, Surinam is the darrdest place for miskeeters I ever seed. Last time J went for a load of merlasses, my cousin d:iw rr\e e bout to a plantation, and "mong other things on a fnrrr. 1 seed one of the prettiest voke of cattle I ever laid my eyes on. Neow, (I'm ' teiiin' the tiuth, you needn't laugh,) when I ; came back where them cattle was fust, one ox i was missin', or there was nolhin' of him Jell i but skin and bone, any way ; and if you be | lieve me, I squinted up a tree, aud there was ; the cussedest big miskeeter I ever seed, a pick in his teeth with one of the horns.' THE PREFERENCE. —In Massachusetts a black man, by a recent, special law, can vote alter one year's residence, while a German or Irish man, or any other European, must wait two years after being naturalized, making seven years in all. Yet Carl Shurz is "stumping" Pennsylvania for the party which makes this distinction between the African ana the Ger man, the negro and the Irishman. GEORGIA. — The Atlanta (Ga ) Confederacy says: "If Mr. Stephens canvasses Georgia, ss we learn he intends doing thoroughly, the State will go for Douglas by fifteen thousand majori ty. If lie only makes two speeches in the State, it is safe for Douglas by six or eight thousand majority." THE election ot Foster is conceded by most ! of the intelligent politicians of our State.
