The nomination ol the above-named gentle man as the Democratic candidate (or Congress ID this district, is hailed with the liveliest satisfaction by men of all parties who desire; lhat our National Legislature shall be com posed of good and worth}- men. In Bed lord and Fulton, the name of William P. Schell is a household word. In the remaining counties 111 this district, Mr. Schell's public services, and his integrity of character, are well known j anrt highly appreciated. We might give arti cle after article from newspapers published in various parts of the Slate, speaking of Mr. Schell's public career in the most flattering j terms. But this would be a work of supereroga tion. Our readers know the man too well , to make it necessary lor us to write or quole i utogiums upon his character. To the people id our county, Mr. Scheli has always proved a friend in all their interests. Every public enter prise calculated lor the good of the communi ty, has found him an earnest, untiring advocate, and a liberal and manly supporter. Possessing a clear and strong mind, and having at an arlj age tonr.ed habits of sobrietv and close attention to business, he has been able to accomplish wha* many would have turned from in despair. As an instance of this, we need but refer to his connection with the Broad Top improvement, which opened up a source of unbounded wealth in tiiat erewhile neglected region. Or should we desire evi dence nearer home, our readers ail know that to Wm. P. Scheli we are mainly, almost wholly, indebted for the origination and prosecution of the project to build Ihe Bedford Railroad. Everv dollar that has been expended upon the work done upon that road, was raised by Wm. P. Sclieil. When it was promised that if Mr. Scheli would be elected to the Senate, he would do ail he could lor a railroad to .Bedford, no person expected tiiat he would be able to ac complish hall that he has. His friends thought it an idle, though honest promise : his enemies denounced it as an electioneering scheme.— Yet how nobly has he redeemed his word ! How manfully has he fulfilled his promise ! Citizens of Bedford county! Democrats, Re publicans, Bell men ! Is not such a man worthy of your votes ? Is not such a citizen worthy of your encouragement ' Daniel B. Troutmsn. Esq. We owe an apology to our readers, as well as to the a!>ove named gentleman, lor not noticing in our last issue, the nomination for Assembly, made by the Democratic conferees lor this coun ty. The nomination was made during our ab sence from home, ami we were not informed of it until after our paper wns pu l to pre,-. We shall endeavor, nevertheless, to mane ample a mends for fhis unintentional omission. The nomination of Mr. Trontman H A-T excellent one and wiil bo responded to with i rousing vote in his favor wherever he is known. Should he be elected he will make an active, atfentne and faithful member. led the people of Bed ford county rally around htm, and tv securing his election, rebuke the lutle clique in Bedford which by intrigue and bargain and -ile, effec ted the nomination of C. W. Ashcom. Mr. Troutman has many friends in Somerset coun ty, where hi is weli known, and will run a large vote in ihat county. Let Bedford do her I duty anu his election is certain. djr*We are crowded with communications Our traends must have patience. Democrats, Organize! Il ts r.)w but little mrn-e than two weeks till the initial baf'le ol the present campaign will be fought in the liiHa and valleys of Penn | sylvania. Democrats, ate yau prepared fir the tontlict ? Are you ready to 20 to the jrolis on that day, an 1 (o fight once mnr the battle ol your party and your country- ? Have yon or ganize i your districts? Have you had yourselves assessed > Have you made preparations to get • very single vote to the polls ? Il not, go to woik at once. Let not a day pass by unim proved. A victory in October insures a victo ry m November. Go to work, then, ant! let vour rallying crv be "FOSTER and VICTO RY 1" Arc you Assessed i SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER THE '29711. will be the last clay on which voters can be as sessed so as to give them the right to vote at the first election. We caii upon the Demo cratic Vigilance Committees in the various dis tricts, to have every Democratic voter assessed within the proper time, and hope that they will . at once examine the lists. The County tickets. We have thus far said but little in regard to .the claims of the candidates for the several; county offices to be filled at the coming Octo- ' her election. We have treated the Opposition nominees as gentlemen. In fact we have not . said a word against anv ol them personally, not because we could not have done so with truth,! but because we are averse to dragging perso- • nabties into politics. In dark contrast with * our course is that of the abolition organ of this place. Abuse, and slander and olackgnardisrn !of the Democratic candidates, fill its columns j j weekly. We have refrained from noticing i that paper's attacks upon our candidates, for; the reason that the PEOPLE KNOW ITS j CHARACTER, and that the PEOPLE KNOW OC ROAN DI DATES. Men like S. H. TATE, j JOHN J. CESSNA, RICHARD McMCLLIN, JOHN S. BRUMBAUGH, GEO. BAUGH -IYIAN and JACOB WALTER, need no vindi cation at our hands. The people know them \ and w ili vindicate them at the polls. On the olher hand, we oppose Messrs. BOWLES, MULLIN, FEIGHTNEK, and the rest of the Black Republican count v ticket, be cause they stand upon an unsound political plat form. because they are the nominees of a clique in Bedford borough which have chalked out for themselves ofbces and nominations to the ex clusion ot worthier men in (heir own ranks, and because, taken as a whole, the candidates on the Black Repnblican ticket, are ' not .10 well qualified to discharge the duties ot j the offices for which they are candidates, as those on the Democratic ticket. A Base Falsehood. The reckless and unscrupulous orgar. of ihe Republican party of this county, charges JOHN SCOr T , Esq., the Democratic candidate for Senator, with being in lavor of the repeal of the Tonnage Tax. This shameless falsehood is perpetrated hv that paper, in order to pot Scott on a par "vith Wharton, who is opposed by his own party on account of his being a tool of the Pennsylvania Railroad Company. That dodge won't go, Mr. Jordan. Try again, Francis. W. P. Schell's Record. We reler our readers to the record ol Mr. Sr hell on the Tariff and Extra Pay, published in this week's paper. Mr Scheli always has been in lavor of a better taritl than the present, and as everybody who knows the two men will admit, can and will do more for the Tariff, in one week, than McPherson in two years.— He has aigj been consistent ir. his opposition to Extra Pay, has ing so late as April, voted for its repeal. Ecu- John Scott. This gentleman, the Democratic candidate for Slate Senator for this district, paid our town a short visit a few days ago. %r. SCOTT IS a gentleman of fine social qualities, and made many friends here during his brief stav. We are authorized by him to state that it is not true that he is iu favor of the repeal of the Tonnage Tax. He has always been, and is now, opposed to its unconditional repeal. Mr. Scott's prospects ol success are improving daily. .T?°"The paper which first published the article concerning Mr. Curtin's calling the Hermans •'two-skulled," lias since retratcted it. It gives us pleasure to correct the state ment. The letter of FRANCIS PICARD, the Herman huckster of Snvder county, is, however, uncontradicted, and shows Mr. Cur tin to be a man unworthy to occupy so dignifi ed a position as that of Hovernor of Pennsylva nia. I'he letter, it will be remembered, re lates the incident of Curtin's shooting Mr. P.ckard's dog and then turning round and threatening to shoot Pickard himself. XF~The Adams Sentinel attacks Mr. Scheli on the score that when he was in the Stale Senate, he refused to vote with the Black Re publicans, for a resolution reflecting upon and condemning President Buchanan. The same pa| er, also, misquotes Mr. Schell's votes on the Tariff and Extra Pay. lv "e a>k the Sentinel as a matter ot justice to Mr. Sctieli, to publish his record on the Tariff and Extra Pav,as copied from the Senate Journal ir. our rtaper ol this week. Will vou do it, Mr. Sentinel ' .Cr"J. Seweli Stewart, Esq., ot Huntingdon, is announced as an independent Republican candidate for Slate Senator. The way he'll n ake Wharton's fur flv will be a caution. Democratic Meetings THE DEMOCRACY AROUSED ( THE COUNTRY ABLAZE WITH ENTHUSIASM Pursnant to the request of a number of tin leading Democrat-- of Union township, a inecj ting of the citizens of that township was calle| H at the town ol Lewisville,on Friday, Sept. 14-thl for the purpose of raising a Douglas, ami Foster pole. By eleven o clock in thty, forenoon, a large crowd had assembled to wit ness and assi>t in the raising of the pole, whic!\, was a beautiful hickory ninety four feet itc length, without splice. By noon about three;, hundred persons had gatheied in, and the lofty l , hickory, with the flag of Douglas, Johnson arid . Foster floating from its top, soon rose erect to-1 : ward the skv, ainid the cheers and shouts of the multitude. After the pole had been raised, a meeting was organized in front n( Mr. John M. Waller's store, the following named gentlemen acting as officers : President, JOHN ROYER, Sr.: \ ice Presidents, Jacob G. Divelv, Peter Sliupp, Adam Brigle, Jacob Corby, Samuel I Beaid, David Lewis, David Dickey and Henry Corle; SecretarieA, Samuel Burket, John M. Walter, Josiah Burk, Michael Wyant. The j meeting was then addressed bv Messrs. John Palmer and B. IN Meyeis, on the general issues before the people, and by Maj. S. H. Tate on j local politics. The meeting was full of enthu siasm and good feeling, and adjourned with cheers for tiie Democracy and the whole Demo : cratic ticket. Union wll give a good account ot herself in October and November, notwith standing the trick of the Opposition in having the place of holding the election moved as far from tlie Democratic voters as possible. But we must not conclude our account of this meet ing without expressing our thanks to Alr. David Lewis and family, for the kindness with which they treated us on the occasion. Long may they live and prosper. MEETINGS IN CUMBERLAND VALLEY. On Thursday night, Sept. 13th, tlie Douglas Club of Cumberland Valley, held a meeting at Crouse's School House, in that township, which was largely attended. JOHN GROUSE was appointed President; Jno. A. Gump, A. Blair, Esq., Jas. Cessna Esq., ami others whose names have not been reported to us, acted as Vice Presidents and Secretaries. Speeches viere made by O. H. Gaithep, E c q., of Bedford, and Dr. H. Hudson and Jacob Snider, of Centre viile. The best feeling prevailed in the meet ing, and all present expressed their determina tion to do all in their power for the good cause. The meeting adjourned amid great enthusiasm. . On Saturday night last, a large and enthusi astic meeting of the Democracy of'the Southern end of Cumberland Valley, was held at Houck's School House, in that township. About one hundred voters were in attendance. The meet- ing was organized by the appointment of LEVI HA RDINGER, as President: John Pool, Price Twigg, Solomon Rice, John Elliott, and Joseph Brant, as Vice Presidents; and John W. Rice and Sarn'l Wolford Secretaries. Speeches were then made by B. F. Meyers and John Cessna, Esq., after which the meeting adjourned with laud hurrahs for Democracy and the whole Democratic ticket. Our friends in Cumber land Valley deserve the highest praise for the thorough organization which they have effec ted in their township. They are a gallant hand and always light. "Little Berks" will tell a glorious tale at the coming elections. DOUGLAS & FOSTER CLUB, BEDFORD. On Saturday night last, the Douglas and Fos ter Club of Bedford borough, held their stated meeting in the Court II esse. The attendance was good. Sneeches were made |.y Mes-rs. Gailher, Dickerson, Palmer and Fisher. A bout fifteen persons added their names to the Constitution. The Club then adjourned to n --et on Saturday evening next, at wirch time a full attendance is requested. Bloody Run, Pa., Sept. 15th, ISP>O. iln. MEYERS ; Is it true, Mr. Editoi, tha C. W. ASMCOM, the R -publican candidate for itie Legislature, voted against WILMOT in 1*37, when he was presented bv the Repnbli i*n party as their candidate for Governor ? Js it true that ASHCOM and MULLIV were nominated through the influence of Fr. Jordan,Mor the purpose of keeping all the nominations outside of Bedford borough, at this time, so that his brother-in-law. Over, may receive the nomination for the L-gislaturt in 1862 ? These are stated to be facts, m our Township, anc some of us would like to know whether or not they are correct. Answer and oblige a voter of WEST PROVIDENCE TN. LUUIt is hardly expected of us that we should answer the above questions. We know only tins in regard to the fust, viz ; that we have been informed by a gentleman who knows the fact, that Mr. Aschom did vote against WIL MOT when he was the Republican candidate for Governor three years ago. We know like wise that JONATHAN FEIGHTNER, the Re publican candidate for Commissioner, voted for JAMES BUCHANAN, in 1856. Then we have COL. WHARTON, who helped to defeat KOON TZ in IBsr. Surely, the Republicans of Bedford county have a good appetite for swallowing fishy candidates. As to the bar gain and sale by which Ashcom and Mullin were nominated, that is in every body's mouth, though the idea of nominating the brother-in law in 1862, is laughed at by ail f>arlies. Democratic Meetings, There will be a grand rallv ot the Democra cy at THOMAS C. REIGHARD'S, in Union township, on Friday, September 28th. A mass meeting ot the Democrats of Union township, will he held at the house of MICHA EL W \ AN T, in that township, on Fridav, Oc tober s:h. Able speakers will be present to address these meetings.

In order thai our Opposition friends mav be enlightened as to the position Mr. Wharton, their nominee tor State Senator, occupies in his ; own county, we give the following extracts from Ihe PeoptCe Defender , a Republican pa per published in Huntingdon, the town in U bicli Mr. Wharton resides. Jt will be ob served that that paper charge? Wharton with j ;>eing in favor ol the repeal of the Tonnage Tax mil also that he opposed Gen. Koontz for the -enate in 18f>7. j>. £!. Wharton and the Three Mill Tax- Tiiat Urn triumvirate which controlled the ate Republican county convention had an eye i business is as plain as the noon-day's sun to giose who are observant of political events. — 'hey not only thwarted the will of the prople jj the selection ol candidates by their chicanery, it .-tilled an expression of the sentiments ol the I utv upon one ol tlie most vital questions of the j iy, with regard to the financial affairs ot our j unman wealth—to wit : (tie Repeal of the Itiree Mil! lax. Chat the opponents of Loco icoism in this county are opposed to the repeal • the tax is a fact beyond disnute. For several ' I years pas', their Conventions have passed res tit ions ot instruction upon the -übject, 3iid all (miniates for legislative honors were given to iJersland tfiat tliey could not receive the sup : ptof the party without giving an emphatic : eiorsement ot those sentiments. No longer faa than last fall did the people of this county I raise to elect R. B. Wigton because he was 1 p-sumed to be favorable to the repeal, not wlistanding he was pledged against it. Did : tt late Convention re-assert tfie will of those tht placed tliem in power. NO! And why ? B;ause Wharton, Blair and Leas controlled tlir action, and the former two did not want . an ie.-traint thrown upon them should they be eltked. They wanted to go to the legislative hali with their votes untrammelled so that they mijt vote in whatever direction their own pecuniary advancement lay, not careing for the inteest of the people. It is a significant fact I thaJthissubject was allowed to remain sileni by ie Convention, and especially at this time vvhn it ha 3 culminated to one of importance ; andis about to be brought to a direct issue.— Thee is something in this thing, ami a "good thitj," can be made out of it by those who have thevoting power in their hands in the legtsia tivehalls. Imagine tor yourself Wharton in tiieSenat" and Blair in the House, both unpled gedbpon the subject. The bill come/up—the strugs of the deep purse of the lYnusy Ivanid Raixoad Company are loosened—coal, crosstie andwcod contracts held up to their view, and whi do you suppose the result would be. To use >ur poetical correspondent's words they ""•on!d vote it through," without repaid to the inters! of those whom they represent. That Win* ton is a railroad man is evidenced from tin tact fiat he rides in the cars of the Central coni panyupon a "Free Ticket," {a tiring not gener ally jestowod upon private citizens) and his son is th<j Agent of the company at this place. If he is }iot in lavor with the company why did they give him a "pass" over their road. They had a motive in view in giving it to him. He has Itil them to believe that he is a prominent politician, and will be likely to get into a po sition in which he may no thern a favor. Yet, not withstanding the "pass" and the agency, he pretends *< be opposed to the comptnv : and whv ' Because tie wants, in the first place, to b<- elected, and in the second to lie bought Wiiartou Sold Koontz Three Years The Journal and .Jmerimn of iast week, in an editorial article, which was certainly writ ten by S. S. Wharton, judging from the bung ling and ungrammatical manner in which it was pnt up, charg-s J S. Stewart with oppo-itig the election ot Gen. iv ■ ontz three years ago. The statement is unqnaliti-div false, beside be ing written in miserable English, and the edi tion should not adopt, -s editorial, the writings of a man who spells blood, "IVMC/," and Jeremi ah with a "G." Mr. Stewart supported Gen. K. all through the campaign and voted (or him, which is more I ■ *ri Wi a: tort did. Wharton and at least for ty of hi s friends in to is town, voted for Schell, tn consideration of which, an equal number of \ Democrats vote<! for Wharton. For the truth ; of this statement, we refer to William Colon, Post Master, and Wiiliain Lewis. Editor of the J Globe, and others here conversant with the ar- ! langement. There is any quantity ot proof here to show it. The other charge that Wharton's friends : gave to Mr. S. the conferees three years ago, is I simply not true and too contemptible tor notice, j His own friends gave them to him. The inen i that Wharton could influence cast their votes j tor another man. Is this satisfactory ? I-or the. Gazette. A "Political" meeting was held at Stoners- i town, last Friday evening. Tile attendance was very small. Hon. E. McPherson opened the proceedings by stating that "he did not come here to make a speech—only a talk."— .Mr. McPiiersun remarked that the only ques tion before the people in this canvass was the Tariff, all others were merely modifications of it. His elaboration of the ' Tariff dodge" produced considerable yawning and ne gentle man remarked —"what's the use of you talking about it J Don't you see a lot o( locofocos laughing at you ? Nothing daunted, Mr. Mc- Pherson went oil to appeal to the voters. h° said if they did not wish to vote for Lincoln, they could vote for the Republican, or the People's party. Now it has puzzled many in this section to know which shade ot the union splitting party, is engaged in the tariif dodge— Mr. McPherson spoke in terms ofpra t seo! Hon. W. P. Schell, but contended that he was the better Tariff man—tried to show that from the want of a protective tariffthe district embraced m a few miles here has lost "hundreds of thousands of dollars!"—accused the democrat ic party with being extravagant, and modestly wound up by informing - the 'audience '.hat he saved the country four millions of dollars, by his vote on the government expenditure esti mates. Great is Diana of the Ephesians ! Sambo was entirely ignored. At this stage of the Pow wow, ennui had set in, with many decided symptoms ofa general stampede. The spirit, however, moved Mr. Abe. Moore, of Coalmont, and Mr. Moore moved Mr. ShirJv to address the meeting— Mr. Stiiriy declined to speak, but suggested! that Mr. Moore officiale. Mr. Moore advances to the desk, with the "slow and steady march of a jockos- to a perk of oat?," and with a majestic wave of his hand to (he President, and "feller citizens" he opened his "speech"— I reminds his lell. r citizens that In* is not in the habit of making speeches, but • bought lie would get up ami talk—or amuse them —remarked that the Honorable gentleman who has jus', sat down, has made a logical speech, in fact, that he has no inferior in the State of Penn- ; svlvania—opposes Guerrilla tactics in politics : sacs that Douglas is the regular nominee of tlie Democratic party—that Breckinridge is only a Guerrilla—(we trust this will effectually settle the question)—thinks that politics are very treacherous—"would steal the bread and|butter from a man"—again notifies the audience that lie is not making a speech (no person doubted this fact) —in conclusion hopes that everv voter would vnte for Lincoln—thinks that Wharton should be elected—and concluded by slating that lie was impelled to make a speech for two grand reasons, first for the tariff, and second, he was "so striking/if struck by the Honorable •gentleman just sat down." This meeting caps the cliinax. LIBERTY. iii i i iSi i 1; MR. SCHELL'S TARIFF RECORD. In the Slate Senate, on the 19th day of Jan uary, IS:>9, the following tariff"resolutions were voted lor, viz : WHEREAS, The experience of the past and present most fully demon-Irate that if is a wise ; and beneficent policy ol the General Govern ment, which declares the imposition of duties on such products of foreign nations as come m such ' direct contact with those of our own country, as to injure and prostiafe the trade in our own soil, ami among our own citizens. '1 he artizans an i laborers in many department of trade are compelled to abandon then- accus- ' turned pursuits—especially do ouruvvncoal and iron interests suffer : therefore Kesotved by the Sertoli? and House of llepre srntrifives of the Commonwealth of l'ennsi/l rutin, i ,-t Gene/til tenth! t/ ni't , That our Sen ators in Congress be instructed, ami our Repre sentatives requested to labor for the passage (at the present session) of such an act as will not on- ly tend to increase the revenue bv the imposi tion of duties, but afl'ird ample encouragement In a!l the interests of the country, injured by the productions of the cheap labor of other na tions ; but more especially t<> urge an increase of duties on coal and iron, in which a portion ot our own people are deeply interested. Resoivsd , That the views of the President, expressed iii his late annual message jn reference to the advantage of definite or specific duties o ver ad ttolorem duties, as more uniform, less lia ble to frauds, and affording I he most certain and uniform amount of revenue, meet our hearty approbation.

"At noon, a delegation o ipjteen came p a! ,t this place lor Palton.sville. They had t V o r/raras {an i 1 heard a httirtin horn blovi/,<r. When they came back quite a crowd was witn them —all say t0, viz: about 4-0 men and 20 boys. In this crowd I saw a number from Hopewell Tp , South Woo J berry, Blair Coun ty, and the rest— If), only belonging to Middle Woodberrv. I was very much impressed with the propri ety of one of their banners. Shall I describe it It was of rather dusky line, indeed, so much so that the difference betweeen its color and that of "Old Hen" could not be detected. Was it not appropriate ? A significant answer will be found in the fact, that when it was brought nut this morning, a verv good Republican said "/ wis n Lincoln man but that Jlnar mokes rne vote for DOUGLAS." —Well, AlcPherson came. I, with many others thought a speech worth hearing might be forthcoming, and from what was reported, it was to be a least of intellect. But what a delusion ! If he is a sample of the "wise men" of the great "Sanhedrim" of our country, we may well cry "God save the com mit! Wealth !" Self-importance is his whole stock in trade. He savs he can beat Mr. Schell but tfiat lie is sorry to do so. What a pity If Mr. McPherson could be bought at the valua tion other people put U|>ou torn, and be sold at his own, a little fortune could be made by the operation. Air. McPnerson lound quite a hobby when he touched upon the union ot the Douglas and Hell men in New York. Oh! what a shame lor conservative parties to unite to bring about the defeat of Abraham, the union-splitter. Said he, "The Republican party fuses with none if never wanted the. tail ends of other parties to help it. The Honorable gentleman must be vety iorgetlul if he cannot remember that in 1856, ln> party sought the aid of the American party in every state where it could command a vote. Oh ! liu, they nevei t'used ! But let him alone m his confidence, hi-, atrogauce and con ceit. Let him go on despising the assistance ot those who formerly elected him, and we'll Scfiell him out of his Congressional nest on the second Tuesday of October. I have heard some talk of profanities being used bv Democratic speakers at Bedford. If you had heard a certain one of the orators (?) at this meeting you would have come to the con clusion that Black Republican speakers are not ail aints. This thing I speak of did say he "tcot/A/ rather approach the gorge of hell than the Democratic party." That must be good moral (?) g > £ pel. fie said "Douglas' mouth was a fit abyss tor devils to dwell in." That's not had language; not at all to be uttered from a pieacher's potcb. But I will leave him—the contempt ot a good man would (he long before it could reach the depths in which he wallows. The upshot is that the great Republican mee ting in Woodberry of September Bth., iB6O, was a giand fizzle.
