BEDFORD GAZETTE. -BIIOFORO, Pa.- FRID.AY <MT. 18, M®* B. F Meyers, Editor ana Proprietor. FOR PRESIDENT, HON. STEPHEN BOICLAS, OF ILLINOIS. FOR VICE-PRESIDENT, HON. HERSdIEL V. JOHNSON, OF GEORGIA. h DISINTERESTED PATRIOT. The morning after the eiection, that pious and patriotic politician, the Ex-Honorable Francis Jordan, wrote to Andrew G- Curtin, Gov. elect of Pennsylvania. The subject ot his latter was the result of the election, unon which he unselfishly congratulated Mr. Curtin, and with which he mysteriously connec'ed a few sly hints concerning the nice little berth of Sec retary of the Commonwealth. The insatiable Jordan knocks at the official 'cupboard of Mr. Curtin, and demands his crumb, before the he ro of Picard's dog-fight has awakened to hear the news of his election. Office ! office !is the secret watch-word of the blethering bell-weth er of Bedford Black Republicanism. Office! office! is the last aspiration upon his lips, as he lays him down at night, and the first thought that moves in his plotting brain when he rises at morn. Office ! office ! He helped to sell the Wb ig party for office ! Hp helped to betray the American party lor office ! He assisted in defrauding Fillmore for office ! He sat in judgment upon Cameron for office ! He turned and licked the slime of his own tongue lrom Cameron's devoted head, for the sake of office! It is meet and fit that the most corrupt man that ever was chosen Governor of Pennsylva nia, should appoint this buzzard that feeds and lattens upon politics, his adviser and counsel or in the affairs of State. Let him be appoin ted, and let others like him fill the remaining offices in the gift of the Governor, so that the Democracy, three years hence, may bury, in one political giave, these desperate and pestif erous demagogues, who for the sake of office and emolument, have corrupted the people, pollu ted the ballot-box and defrauded the majo-ity of its rights. A BASE CALOmATOR! On Friday night last, Fr. Jordan made a speech in the Court House, to a promiscuous rabble composed of a few decent white men, a number of brawling boys and half a dozen ne groes. This select audience Mi. Jordan en tertained with the most venomous abuse ol the Democratic party, that ever dropped from the lips ot any traitor that ever, for office, or spoils, sold his country to its enemies. This base ca lumniator ola party whose principles are too pure for him to comprehend or profess,jeeringly declared that the Black Republican paitv had been successful at the recent election, every where except in a few districts where the School Law had been rejected. This pattern o a Black Republican gentleman has the brazer effrontery to claim for his negro-loving party all the intelligence and all the patriotism in tin country. According to his reckoning, Democrat! are ignoiamuses, fools and traitors. When Mr Jordan made the fling about the School Law he could not have named more than one Dem ocratic district in the county which has not ac cepted the provisions of the School Law, and we are not sure of even that 'one. But even il Ihe people ot all the districts in the county thai give Democratic majorities, chose to educate their children in private instead of public schools, it would be none of Mr. Jordan's busi ness, and would have nothing to do with their right to vote according to the dictates ot theii own consciences. Besides there are Democrat! in every township in the county as intelligent as Mr. Jordan, and what is better, a little less given 10 the manners ot a blackguard, as well as a little more honest in their |litical actions than that patent Black Republican gas-bag, Fr. Jordan. Not so bad after all, Whilst the Slate has gone Black Republican, we gam members of Congress in the following districts: In the York district Bailey, Dem., in place ot Junkin, Rep., in the Bucks district, Cooper, Dem., in place of Longenecke>-, in the Beiks district, Ancona, Dem., in place of Schwailz, Forney ite. This is a gain ot three Democrats in the next Congress horn Penn sylvania. In Ohio the Democrats gam foui members of Congress and in Indiana one Phis insures the organization ot the next Congress against the Republicans. Amid the treachery bribery and corruption of one enemies, we slii progress. Old Berks Herself again. Beck# county gives Foster nearly -1000 ma jority. Last year Wnght's majority was onlv t RU.

The Empire State the Battle-ground ! The Breckinridge Ticket withdrawn ! From the very inception of the Presidential contest, we have regarded New York as the battle ground. The defeat ol Seward for the Republican nomination at Chica?o, dispirited the Republicans of that State, in such a degree as to render them cold towards Lincoln and indifferent to the prospect of his success or his defeat. Besides the corruption of the Repu.i can Legislature ot New York had greatly dis gusted the masses, and when the nomination of Judge Douglas was announced, 'hundreds of moderate men iormerly connected with the Republican party ol New York, formally a bandoned that organization and rallied under the standard of the Little Giant. Ther, too, the Fillmore wing of the Opposition refuses to support Lincoln and has coalesced with thp Democrats upon one electoral ticket. This union bet ween all the parties opposed to Litr coln is now perfect and complete. The Breck inridge ticket is withdrawn, and the fiiends of that candidate will give a cordialjsupport to the Union ticket. The battle will be fiercely con tested, but if the past is any guaranty of the future, the Union ticket certainly has the ad vantage. Last year tbe Democratic candidates for State officers who were also supported by the Fillmore men, were elected by handsome majorities over the Republican candidates. In 1856. Buchanan and had over 40,0(10 majority over Fremont. Hence we have good reason to hope that the 35 electoral votes ot New York will be cast against Lincoln, which will secure his defeat. A FllAl 1)1 LENT VICTORY ! CURTIN'S MAJORITY IMPORTED! The most stupendous aud audacious frauds were perpetrated by the Black Republican wire-workers at the recent State election.— In almost every election-district [in the Stale where there was a Republican majority in the Election-board, numbers of fraudulent votes were polled. In some such districts in our own county, the TEN DAT LIST was swelled to the number ot fifty and sixty ! In Philadel phia, we are inlormed by a gentlpman who resides in that city, and who at the late election acted as a watcher at one of the precincts, there were at least 10,000 fraudulent votes polled j lor the Republican candidates. This was done i by importing votes irom New Jersey and New | England and having their names put upon the I Ten Day List.* In Bradford, Tioga and Erie | counties, thousands of votes were cast for Cur tin, bv persons shipped over from New York. In Allegheny and Lancaster counties the same game was piayed. The vote of thpse places shows it. Take up the Census reports and in most ot them you can't find within a thousand or two as many voters as there are votes polled, and this, too, in the face of the fact that a con siderable number of voters never turn out to tbe election. On the 6th of November next, these imported votes will be needed in New Jersey and New Yoik, and the fraudulent majority of Curtin in Pennsylvania can be ,e --duced to nothing if every Democrat rallies to ■ lint post. ....CENSUS RETURNS OF BEDFORD COUN TY.— We give below the number of inhabitants ot the several boroughs and townships of this county, as returned by the census marshals in their reports filed in the Piothonotary's office.

A BASE AND AUDACIOUS FRAUD! THE PHILADELPHIA BLACK RE PUBLICANS ATTEMPT TO COUNT OUT CONGRESSMAN LEHMAN ! PROSECUTION FOR FORGERY! A general system of fraud seems to have been practised by (be Black Republican wire-workers all over the State. The ! trail of the serpent can now be descried in almost every election district. A stupendous i and villainous attempt at fraud has just been : discovered in the Fust Congressional District in the city of Philadelphia. W. 12. Leh man, the Democratic candidate, was elected in this district, by 132 majority. In the j Fourth waid Mr. Lehman had 555 majority, ! but when the Return Judges met, the return tor that Ward was found to have bpen so altered las to give Lehman but 255 majority, thus de feating him by about 200 votes. The City papers are filled with speculations upon this i audacious fraud. The Democratic organs de | nounce it with great vehemence, and even Forney's Press considers it an outrage ; but j the Republican presses, like detected and con j victed criminals, are shamefully 3ilent. Thus j have the Republicans cariied their candidates, by fraud and corruption, by ballot-box-stuffing | and imported votes. The indignation and the ctrrse of a betrayed and defrauded people, will ing their political death-knell before many davs. We give below some testimony which will show conclusively the dastard attempt to de lraud the people ot the First district of their choice for member of Congress : THE CONTESTED ELECTION IN THE FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT. After the action ot the Return Judges, Mr. Lehman proceeded to the Court ol Common Plesis, and commenced proceedings, as follows : William E. Lehman, Esq., being duly sworn, saillr that lie carefully examined the returns of the judges of the several precincts in the F-rst Congressional district, of the election held on Tuesday last, and that the result was as fol lows : LEHMAN.

TRIBUTE OF RESPECT. A; a meeting of the Schellsburg Mack Plu med Riflemen, Sept. ,30, 1860, Capt. G. S. Mullin was appointed President, and Wm. J. Smith Secretary. The following preamble and resolutions, in regard to the death of Archibald Finley, were proposed and unanimously adop ted : WHEREAS, it has pleased Almighty God, in his intinite wisdom, to remove from our midst by the hand of death our worthy and beloved comrade, Archibald Finley, be it therefore, Resolved, That while we bow in humble sub mission to the will of God, we can but deeply deplore the departure ot him whose, death has thrown a deep gloom over all our hearts : liesulved, That by this sore dispensation of Providence, the company has lost one of its most worthy members, one ol its brightest orna ments—tn short, a loss that will not soon be re paired. Resolved, That we unite our sorrow for his death with the bereaved widow and friends ol the deceased, and in this sad dispensation we recognize the voice of God, speaking to us, "Be ye also ready." Resolved, That we attend the funeral in a body, showing to the deceased the usual milita ry respect to which he is entitled, and also that we wear the usual badge of mourning for thirty days. Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the faintly of the deceased, and also to both the county papers for publication. WM. J. SMITH, WM. Y. POOR MAX, JUSTUS GOLLIPHEK, Committee. For the Bedford Gazette. SABBATH SCHOOL CELEBRATION. On Saturday, Oct. the Pleasant Hill Sabbath School, Middle Woodbeny township, held a celebration in the beautiful oak grove on the land of Mr. Robert Elder. Scaicely had the bright orb of day illumined our lovely land scape, when the young ladies began their march to the appointed place, carrying the choicest luxuries from their homes, to greet the bright eyes, and satisfy the appetites of the happy children, and it possible, happier parents about to assemble together. About noon a goodlv number were gathered together, when the ex ercises were commenced by Sa.n'l. W. Hahn, the worthy Superintendent, who read an appro priate hymn from the Sunday School Hymn Book, which was beautifully sung by the School; after which an address was delivered by John E. Satterfield, suited to the occasion. When dinner was announced, the long table almost groaning beneath the load of viands carefully arranged, was soon surrounded and the good things rapidly disappeared. Miss Eliza Price, Miss Matilda Elder, Miss Margaret Smith, Miss M. Ann Smouse, and Miss Esther Smith were most active in getting up the collation. The Martinsburg band was taiso in attendance and enlivened th* scene with its delightful strains. Thus the beautiful day passed away and at the going down of the sun, the happy crowd dis persed, thinking pleasant thoughts and hoping bright things of the future. Pattonsvilie, Oct. Bth, IS6O. PHILO. Xegro Hide Awakes—John Brownisja. The real spirit that animates Abraham Lin coln's party was pretty well exhibited by the motto inscribed on a banner paraded at the great Republican den.onslration in Pittsburg, week before last. "We revere the memory of John Brown" were the magic words, emblazon ed in living letters, which inspired the enthusi asm of a body ol Republicans (?) marching in public through the streets of a populous city. It was, of course, to be expected, that, the publicity of such treasonable'sentiinents, by a party that is preponderant in numbers an d in fluence would give a powerful impetus to trea son of that kind which is '-revered." Hence as a legitimate consequence, we have the following, which we find in the advertising columns of the Pittsburg Dispatch—a paper so deeply steeped that it is well nigh Abolition : iTF'COLORED MEX OF PITT.iBURG AND VICINITY—You are requested to meet and form yourselves .into WIDE AWAKE CLUBS immediately, for the purpose of further ing the. interest of the friend of the human race, ABRAHAM LINCOLN. Our brethren had a tremendous demonstration in Boston recently. Already|New York has spoken in favor, of univer sal suffrage. "They who would be free them selves must strike the blow." And if colored men would have their rights, thev should move for the success of their friends. Do not leave the Dutch and Irish monopolize all the honor of electing Lincoln and Hamlin. Colored men have a right to act at the Foils as a Vigilance Commil'ee for the prevention of illegal voting. John Brown, the hero of Har per's Ferry, is vet to be avenged. OSSAVVATTOMJE. " ,1 u I A Prediction. We publish the subjoined extract from the i protest of the member ofthe National Comm tte ] for Pennsylvania, which, coupled with a request j for a meeting ol g mass and delegate Oonven j tion in Harnsburg on the 26tti cl July, was put j lished on the 16th ol the same month. This comprises many ol the objections urged by the Douglas men oi the State against the : most unfortunate, unwarranted, irregular and | suicidal conduct of the V\ eish Committee at its j meeting ;n Philadelphia on the 2d of July.— i Had that Committee done its dutv, and nothing | but its duty ; recognizing Douglas, Johnson, ; and Foster as the Democratic nominees, and | vigorously organizing tor the campaign, who can doubt that Foster would have been trium phantly elected ? instead of that, by its filling and backing, by its attempt to conduct a cam paign upon two sets of principles, and by igno ring 'he Presidential contest, (which is impos sible,) it has defeated the Democracy. It will be observed that the predictions are now facts . 1 "Under such circumstances, J was exceed j ingly astonished that the State Committee of Pennsylvania, at its meeting on the 2d of this month, should have tailed to endorse the tegu lar nominees and proceed to a vigorous organi zation for the campaign. Had it done so, 1 sin- I Cereiy believe that besides the election of our I Governor, which I could not doubt, we should ha*e elected a majority ot the Legislature—se curing a United States Senator, in place ofthe Hon. Win. Bigler—a larger number of Con gressmen than at the preceding election, and more than cur usual share of county officials. I'his course was incumbent upon a State Com mittee, which received its authori'y from a j Convention where a resolution was unanimous ly adopted pledging the delegates loth- .im port of the nominees of the Convention at Reading, abeady made, and those to be made at Charleston. The Hon. President ot the Con vention, by express resolution, was empowered to appoint this Committee and made Chairman thereof. Through him, therefore, the will ol the Convention was conveyed to the committee, ft had the power to endoise the regular nomi nations—nothing beyond this. It was and is an Executive Committee, appointed to conduct the campaign in behalf of the Democratic par ty —but with no authority to enter into compro mises with either Mr. Hell or .Mr. Breckinridge or Mr. Lincoln or Mr. Houston, it did not ie ceive power to recognize any otfwr platform than that of the National Democratic Conven tion, IO su.-tain any other than the regular Dem ocratic nominees, to encourage secessyjn and ! disorganization. Yet it has done ail this. "Therefore, I, in behalf of (he National Dem ocratic. Committee, with a deep sense of the ie sponsibility of my position, and a sincere re gret that it is not held by an abler and more experienced person, PROTEST against this ac tion as undemocratic, unauthorized and impo litic. It is undemocratic, because it countenan ces the claim of a minority, however small, to rule the majority ; unauthorized, because the committee had no power to exceed its execu tive duties, or ignore the resolution of the Con vention which created it; impolitic, because it demoralizes the Democratic organization. "The resolution adopted by the State Com mittee is virtually one of instruction, and a pledge for the electors as also a recommendation to the Democracy. They are firs: to vote for Douglas and Johnson, if their votes will elect them ; but failing in this, they are next to vote for Breckinridge and Lane, if their votes will alect them. The disorganizing tendency ol the resolution has already been adverted to, and I consider it too clear for argument, that when an Executive Committee undertakes to endorse non-intervention and intervention, organization and disorganization, regular nominees and bol ters' nominees, Douglas and Breckinridge, that the Committee can no longer be executive, but must be a divided anrl impotent body. What addresses could it put forth, what pamphlets could it circulate, what speakers could it em ploy, in what manner could it conduct the cam paign ? The disorganization of the chief Com mittee would necessarily be felt in every Coun ty Committee, and a dissolution of party bonds commencing at the heart, would necessarily be felt in every member. Instead of electing our candidate lor Governor, our candidates tor Con gress or the Legislature or for county offices by such a policy, we would defeat them all.— The disintegration would be universal and re sult in apathy among the Democratic masses. Further, this resolution not only introduces contusion, not only pardons the secession of these gentlemen at Charleston with their slave trade and slave code propositions, or their se cession at Ball-more with an intervention plat form, but absolutely puts a premium upon the long series ot their labors." —MARRIED— On the 11th inst., by Joseph Barney, at the residence of the bride's father, in Southampton, Mr. Tiighman Northcraf? and Miss Ann Maria Lash ley. - E - V I In Friend's Cove, on Fie 3d Sept. ult , Mrs. Hershheiser, wile of Mr. John Hrrsh'heiser, aged 31 years, 5 months and 5 da vs. On Sept. 25th, ult., at 11 o'clock, A.
