BEDFORD GAZETTE -BEDIORIK Pa.— FRIDAY XOV. 23, 1860. i BTf. Meyers, Editor and Proprietor THE SACRAMENT (J ft he Lord's Supper, (D. V.) will be administered i in the Presbyterian Church of this place, on rex? | Sabbath. The Pastor expects the .assistance of ! Rev. VV. B. Craig, of Bloomfield, Pa. The Rock on which Republicanism must split. It i the hope of some people who cannot arrive at the conclusion thai Mr. Lincoln really intends to carry out his doctriue or that of his platform in regard to the question ot slavery, that lie will pursue a moderate and conservative course. It is very likely lha. Mr. Lincoln will be compelled to abandon his plat form and repudiate his anti-slavery views, and this is the rock cn which Black Republicanism is bound to split. Many of Mr. Lincoln s sup porters believed him to be conservative, for some of the demagogues who advocated hi 3 elec tion, put his claims upon the ground o! con servatism. Ti.is class will demand of him the surrender of the ultraism of the Chicago Flat form and of his Springfield and Peoria speeches. If he does not do this, he is shorn of at least one Unrd of the strength he had when elected. If he does, he will be ostracised and huntrd down by the ultra wing of bis party, who com pose a large majority of his supporters. He stands, therefore, upon Scvlia, and no matter which way he leaps, plunges into the dark and whelming Charybdis. The following from the Pittsburg Dispatch, a Lincoln paper, will serve to show what •'Republicans" expect of their President: Throw that tub of Personal Liberty Bills to this insatiable whale, the arrogant Slave Pow ei, and if it dares the madness of actual secess ion, will not appease, but stimulate to greater arrogance, and the whole work must be done over again. The same trouble would follow if Mr. Lincoln , (ire do not Jear it) should at tempt to appease that hungry Power by any milk and water conservatism of Administra tion. He would sink irretrievably ; the South would be more unreasonable than ever ; and the North must fight another battle, against still greater odds, or be for ever dragooned by the Overseers. Aud whaia mean, cowardly, cruel desertion would it be of the brave Republicans of the Siave States, who have nobly stood in the front of the fierce fight against the Terrorism of that Power in those States—where it is only possible to speak or vole at great personal sacrifice and risk. Figures will not lie ! The following appeared in that mendacious aheet edited by would-be Attorney General Fr. Jordan, the Esdford Abolition organ, of last week : At the October election, we were beaten in Bed ford County 97 votes. We have for President a ma jority of 231 over the Reading electoral ticket, and 181 over Foster, and now Lincoln has from 60,000 to 100,000 majority in the State. Prettv good, considering that the voters irom New England, New Jetsey and New York were "needed" at home "on the 6th of November. Try again, our ex-Know- Nothing friend. Maybe you can give as good an excuse lor the November thrashing your new love party has received. Perhaps this time they were imported from the South I Now, as we have said before, the Lincolnites were successful in this county, as elsewhere, only because tbe Democrats did not turn out and suffered the election to go by default. If half a tight had been marie against Lincoln, the black banner of republicanism would have been humbled to the dust.— But it will not do for Mr. Jordan to attempt to exaggerate the victo ry of hss party. In the above quoted article he savs that Lincoln has a majority, in this connty of ll lßl over Foster." This is a fiat and positive falsehood. Foster had 356 1 votes, whilst Lincoln had but 3505> leaving a majority for Foster over Lincoln of 5*5. We tall upon Mr. Jordan to correct bis false state ment. Will be do it! Frightened and Backing Down ! The Black Republicans al Itieir meeting on Tuesday night last. assumed a very conserva tive tone indeed. Forgetting that their Presi dent elect avowed himself in favor of '"putting slavery in the course of ultimate extinction," they take ground in favor of maintaining the UnioD. The truth is that they are frighten ed at the prospect before them and would like to back down from their fanaticism and folly.— Sut their mode of maintaining the Ucior, must, ex necessitate, be one of coercion and compulsion. It will not be hat of granting the Southern people the equality to which they are ( entit!ed under the constitution, but it will be like the argument of John Brown, vi tt armtt ! The end will be that the South cannot be coer ced and troublous times must follow. would-be Attorney General said in his speech iD the Court House, on Tuesday nigh', that the Southern States were arming themselves against the Government, which they had no right to do, and that the Execu tive ought to interfere and put them down Why did not Mr. Jordan ask the Executive to interfere when Massachusetts, New Hampshire and other Northern States took up arms to re sist the Government in the execution of the Fugitive Slave Law 1 NULLIFICATION* IN PENNSYLVANIA. Some nine oi ten of the Southern States, since they have fallen under the misrule of the Black Republican parly, have passed laws or, ha I judicial nullifying one of the! compromises of ISuO, the law tor the renuition j ot fugitive slaves. Among these states, aud we j blush to sav if, is our own once conservative but now abolitionized Commonwealth. An act ; was passed by the Black Republican Legisla- j ture of our Stale, on the 31st day of March last, I entitled "An act to consolidate, revise and I amend the Penal Laws of this Commonwealth," and in the i#sth section thereof it is enacted as I follows: "No Judge of any of the Courts of this Commonwealth, nor any Alderman or Justice of j the* Peace of said Commonwealth, shall have , jurisdiction, or take cognizance of the case .of any fugitive from labor from any of the Uni- j ted States, or Territories, under any Act of j Congre.s ; nor shaii any such Judge, Alderman, or Justice of the Peace ot this Commonwealth, issue or grant ar.v certificate or warrant ot re- j moval of any such fugitive from labor, under , any Act of Congress ; and if any Alderman or' Justice of the peace cf this Commonwealth, j i shall take cognizance, or jurisdiction, of the | i case of any 6ucfi fugitive, or shall grantor issue ; i any certificate, or warrant of removal, as afore j said, (hen, and in either case, he shall be deem j ei guilty of a tnLdemeanor in office, and shall,' 'on conviction thereof, be sentenced to pay, at; j the direction of the Court, any sum not ex-; ' ceedirtg one thousand dollars, the onehalf; to the party prosecuting for the same, and the other half to the use of this Commonwealth. If any person cr persons, claiming any ne ) gro or mulatto as a fugitive from servitude or , j labor, shall, under any pretense of authority j whatsoever, violently and tumultuously, seize ; upon and carry away to any place, or attempt ; to seize and carry awav, in a riotous, violent, tumultuous and unreasonable manner, and so as to disturb or endanger the public peace, any negro or mulatto within this Commonwealth, either with or without the intention of taking such negro or mulatto before any Dislrict or Circuit Judge the person or persons so offend ing against the peace of this Commonwealth, shaii be guilty of a misdemeanor; andon convic tion thereof shall be sentenced to pay a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars, and further to joe imprisoned in the County Jail, for any J period at the discretion of the Court, not ex i ceeding three months Now, this law sets at defiance the Fugitive j Slave Law which is founded upon Constitution, and which was adopted by Con gress, through the advocacy and earnest re commendation of such patriots as Webster and Clay. The Fugitive Siave Law was con ceded to the South as a set-off to (be admission of California as a free state. This was a sol emn compromise entered info on the part of the North, and from which the North was to de rive tenfold more benefit than the South. * And yet the treachery and dishonesty of the Black Republicans have placed upon our statute-books a law absolutely cheating the South out of their rights under the Compromise of 1850 ! Is j it any wouder that the Southern people talk of secession, when a party has gained the ascen- Idency in the Government which has already violated the Constitution j wherever it has been in powtr ? The loss of the Locofocos in Cumberland Val ley, on the October election, is -JI votes. Suppose they had the same majority they had before, we would still have carried the County by 137 over all. They lost 14 votes in Southampton, and 33 in Juniata, add these together, and we still would have carried the County by 90 over all. We think Bed ord County is a pretty safe Linco'n County—Jor dan's Inquirer. It was well enough for your purpose, to stop at Juniata in counting the Democratic absen tees. If you had proceeded with the remain ing districts, you would probably have discov ered that in Bedford borough the Democratic loss was 18, whilst Lincoln gained but two and those two transient voters ; tnat in Bedford tp., the Democratic absentees were 33, whilst Lincoln gained but 7 ; that in Broad 'l\-p the Democratic absentees were 7, whiist Lincoln had 4 votes less than Curtio ; that in Cole rain, the Democratic aosentees were 19, Lin coln receiving 2 votes less than Curtin; that in Hopewell the Democratic absentees numbered 37, whilst Lincoln had but 3 more votes than Curtin ; that in Monroe the Demo cratic absentees were 11, in Napier 10, Lincoln receiving but 2 votes more than Curtin , in East Providence 11; in West Providence 7 ; in Middle Woodberry 11 ; in South Woodberry 11. In 3hort, a? the tooting up shows, there were but 2238 Democrat.c votes polled in the county for President, whilst Foster had 2561, showing that 323 Democratic votes vvpre un polled at the Presidential election. This is bas.ng the calculation on the October election, when there were at least 125 Democratic vo ters not out. Wt think Bedford county is "a pretty safe" Democratic county, bv at least 200 majority when the full vote is polled. Let the Attorney General try again. TF*The Bedford county office-seekers at tempted a glorification on Tuesday night over Lincoln's election. The signal for the begin ing of ceremonies, was the running up of the t?ag by one of the applicants for the Post OflEc. As twilight came on, another applicant for the Post Office was seen to shoulder his baton, and march a half-a-doznn Beboickfrs around town, other would-be Postmasters look ing on and "grinning horribly a ghastly smile." The bell rang, and a dozen or more applicants for Flour Inrpector, Sergeant at Arms at Har risburg, Transcribing Clerks, etc., etc., saun tered up to the Court House, to tiear an appli cant for the Attorney Generalship under Cur tin, and a candidate for President Judge, abuse those dreadful fellows, the "Locofocos." There was no enthusiasm, but jealousy, green-eyed monster, stared continuously from the free of one prospective Postmaster to that of another. It was trulv[a melancholy assemblage and look ed more like a funeral than a triumphant gath ering. Competition tor office, Southern thun der, and the effect of Lincoln's election upon ! the monev market, is doing its work among the j poor Republicans. The Presidential Election. We have the following additional particu lars in regard to the result of the recent eiec ! tion : Virginia is now certain for Bell by 400 or ; s(io majority. Maryland has gone for Breckinridge by about I 300 majority. Kentucky gives Bell 12,000 to 15,000 majori ty. Douglas receives a heavy vote in this : \ state. Tennessee has gone for Bell by several thou- I j sand majority. Douglas received upwards of j 11,000 votes in Tennessee. Missouri is still in doubt, but the latest re ports give it to Douglas by about 500 majority f over Bell, 40,000 over Breckinridge and 45,- ' i 000 over Lincoln. ' The rest ol the Southern States have gone for } Breckinridge, with the exception ol Georgia • which failed to choose electors by the vote of i the neople. The Legislature will choose the : Electors. Douglas carries New Jersey by 3000 major- j ■j'tj. ,! Despatches from reliable sources give C&i --' ifornia to Douglas by 3000 majority over Lin j-i coin and 20,000 over Breckinridge. The re ,, n.ainder of the Northern States, Oregon excep • ted, (which is not heard from) have gone for j - Lincoln. A comparison of the popular vote of i ' i each of the candidates, develops the, fact that i ' Lincoln is larg-Iy in the minority, and that I I Douglas, though not receiving as many electo , j ral votes as either Bell or Breckinridge, exceeds > \ them largely in the vote of the people.

The Governor of the Salt River Territory, heartng that we were from the same county from which hailed his former subject, Mr. Jordan, of tire Inquirer, came to the conclusion to send us speedily back ; "for," remarked he, with a very serious counte nance, "my old friend Jordan needs a little watching, now and then, not only lor bis own but tor his country's good, and, therefore, as a well-wisher of the people of Pennsylvania generally and of Bedford county particularly, I deem it my duty to advise you to return at once and keep an eve upon him and ail who are of his way of thinking."

FLUCE Now that the great political deluge, which for the last six months, has inundated the col umnsof newspapers of political proclivities, has subsided, and that the great political battle of 1860, has been fought, and it remains only to give the statistics of the victorious, wounded, dead and dying, which may be done by a tabu lar arrangement, in a comparatively small space, we hope to find, through th local press, an awakening interest in education and school matters ; so that our home paper may continue to be, as it ever has been, a welcome guest, and an iuteresting companion in the family cir cle. We anxiously hope that our Educational m°n—Superintendent, Teachers, Directors, friends ol children—will make an arrangement with our Editors, to l)3ve, for home or school reading, at least one interesting article per week, inserted in our county papers for the benefit ol Teachers, Parents, and Children. Who will be the first to contribute a heart cheering proem ior the school-boys, that will make them hail with exquisite delight, the sound of (he merry school-bell, as it "throws its wel come on the air," and thus adds wings to their feet as they hasten to school to greet the Teach er, who stands ready to welcome them with a smile ? Who will be our first lady friend, (or the gentleman if the lady should fail,) to ex hilarate the dull and dreaded task, impending over the little girls' entering school, by con tributing some sweet words of encouragement, entwined with assurance of a speeiiy reward for industry and constancy in ascending the hill of science, thus rendered easy and pleas ant ? We ask the attention of our readers to the following article from "CLARE'S SCHOOL VISI TOR," (by the way an excellent little paper fo children,) under the caption of S'IPTORT YOUR HOME PAVER "The world is flooded with papers—all sorts of papers—secular papers, religious papers; papers for the farmer, trie mechanic, the teach er, the child ; daily, weekly, monthly papers ; papers pictorial and papers congressional ; fun ny papers and stupid papers Posts, Tribunes, Forums Messengers, Advocates, Heralds— Banners, Flag>, Trumpets—Day-Books, Jour nals, Ledgers —Worlds, Suns, Stars—Dispatch es, Expresses, Couriers, —Chronicles, Examin ers, Reporters, arid a thousand other famous pipers, all of which are scattered broad-cast throughout the land ; but one of the best pa pers for a family of young persons, and the one deserving the first and promptest patronage from the head of the household, is the indis pensable local or county paper—the home pa per. We would earnestly recommend farmers and mechanics, teachers, lawyers, doctors, preachers, by all means, encourage first your own paper, published in your county-town and containing all the local news of your neigh borhood. It is a grand mistake for persons in the country or at a remote distance from the great cities, to send their money hundreds of miles away in exchange either lor a stale daily, or a weekly made up of dead dailies, and ex pect thus to find profitable and entertaining reading for a family ! Be neighborly. Subscribe ar.d pay your dollar or two, as ihe price may be, for your home paper. If it happens to he a little dull at times, breathe new life into it by writing something lively for its columns, or sending a few new subscribers and as many dollars to the Editor. Sure cure for dullness; Encourage home enterprise and home industry. Encour age home talent by teaching your children to contribute articles, short, pointed, uselul, sug gestive, to the juvenile department of your home paper. , Friends, think of this, and resolve to assist your neighbor, the publisher of the paper established and continued to promote your in terest and your happiness. Give your nearest paper a hearty welcome these winter evenings ; and snould you have an extra quarter or halt dollar left for reading money, give it to John nie or Mary, and let it be expended in secu ring the regular visitant some live youth's pa per. Such investments will pay a thousand fold." BEDFORD BIBLE SOCIETY. Editor "Gazette Dear Sir : As the Com mittees o!

CuARLESTon, Nov. 16.—The demonstration j of welcome lust evening to the members of the Legislature returning from the Capital, were very enthusiastic. A larpe Palmetto tree was : planted in front of the Institute Hall, where the meeting was held, and facing the speakers' stand was a large transparency, "Well done, I good aud faithful servants." Mr. Macbeth, the President, made a fiue speech. K. N. Gordon also addressed tne delegates, and the response ol Mr. Porter, the Presidenlof j the Senate, called forth prolonged applause. Several other speakers made telling addres : ses, and the greatest enthusiasm prevailed. I'here were abundant eisplays of fireworks, and many houses were illuminated. During the day canoons were fired as flags were rai sed and State mottoes inscribed ! upon them. SECESSION MEETING AT MOBILE. i MOBILE, Ala., Nov. 16 —At the meeting of citizens irrespective of party, held here to day, resolutions were unanimously adopted favoring a secession from the Union. A resolution to await the action of the other States was voted down and withdrawn. .MOBILE, NOV. 17. —The Register declares t for the secession of Alabama, and savs that the large sectional vote at the North and the South proves that a common government is imnossi- I ole. Ail efforts to save the Union will be j fruitless, and this journal appeals to the cor.ser ; valive men to take th" movement in their own ; hands, as the only means of avoiding the worst j consequences of ail inevitable revolution. GEORGIA. AUGUSTA, NOV. IS. —The general impress ion is that Senator Toombs has not yet resigned l but that he will resign on the 3d of March, un less Georgia secedes. The bill appropriating a million of dollars to arm and equip Georgia, is a complete law. FLORIDA. | NEW ORLEANS, NOV. 17. —The Legislature |of Florida at fact session, passed a resolu tion promising decided action in cas= of the election ola ReDublican President, requiring I the Governor to convene the Legislature. The Jacksonville Standard and other papers urge the ; Governor to a compliance with \hu resolution. SOUTH CAROLINA. CHARLESTON, NOV. 17.— The people inaugu j rated the revolution at 11 o'clock this rooming. Our leading importing merchants have erected i<t mammoth poie near the Charleston Hotel, | and the hoisting of the State flag on it has been ! duly celebrated. The pale was made of Caroii jna pine, one hundred feet high, and surmoun ; ted by the cap of liberty. The neighboring ; house tops were crowded with people. Thou ' sands of the highest respectability thronged the i balconies ana windows, waving their handker ! chiefs. Impromlu stands were erected, aud the i principal merchants took seats. The flag was • then hoisted amid the tremendous cheering ; the populace and the greatest excitement ever 1 known here. COLOMBIA, S. C., NOV. 17. —Political affairs i are quiet. There is such an unanimity among j South Carolinians in favor of secession that it I seems to be a fixed and recognized fact. Messrs. Perry, Orr, and other Union men in j former times, now eiiher co-operate with, or do ; not oppos® the movement. ] Meetings are being held in all the districts i and oarishes of South Carolina in favor ofae -4 . cession. A QUESTION. If the main purpose ol the Republicrn party was not aggression on the South, why were not Bell and Everett adopted by the Chicago Convention ? Their nomination certainly would have sufficed for all North and South op posed to Democracy. It was a nomination which, ifsuccessful, would have carried appre hension of disaster nowhere. The only difference between it and Lincoln is that the Bell-Everett ticket was composed of men not pledged to put slavery in a process of extinction, while Lincoln did stand thus pledg ed, and this difference made Lincoln acceptable to Giddings and all of that stripe, as being the man for their purpose, while B-! 1 and Everett were not suited to their anti-slavery purpose. Let every one put the question closely to himse|f ) and he will say that Lincoln's pledged hostility to Southern institutions was the sole cause of his being preferred.— Pennsylvi.uan.

TH2 FRIENDS OF LAMARTINE THINK IT IS. We are utterly disgusted with the se!f-lau dstior. which some ol our second class great men are in the hoat! of practicing •, and we mean !t "tpose it. even though the task is a distasteful one. Th vice is peculiarly, though not exclusively, Frenc.i ; and is found among the second ciassof great men, but never among the first wno are the real b-nefactors o! the woi Id. Thomas Holloway, nn- of the latter, whoa* name is idolized in ail parts of Ihe world, and to whom it is not too much to sayifcbat miliionr of i,ll creeds and complexions are indebted for the preservation of their lives.—Thomas Hollo way, we say, is never heard appealing either to the gratitude or generosity of those who have derived the greatest of all earthly blessing* frorn hisskiii; he contents himself with the assurance that his work has been done, and that the price has been paid. We have ben led into these reflections bv an appeal which is now put forward on behalf ola second c!a? French po-t. Moneur Al phor.se Lamartine, it seems, though munificent ly paid lor the productions of his pen, neglec ted to lay up any sufficient store for the sup port of his declining days : and now his voice is raised against "the ingratitude of the human race." The argument which he produces to strengthen his claim, is one which should ra ther make him blush fo r his extravagance : he says that millions of his productions have ber> sold, and that therefore the world is in his debt ' But why ? War he not paid the price he as ked for every cony ? Or doe# he think that it rounds like common pro3e honesty to ark to be paid twice over. Hi* will answer, doubtless, that his poems gave a pleasure the vaiu- of vvf ich their price could not approximate. Let us admit this :u!e, and apply it to another cas.* to test its merits. Health we a!' know, is the chief of earthly blessings; and ajboon which must be purchased, let the cost be what it may : a blessing, to be blessed with which the sinking monarch would resign his kingdom. Suppose then, that Hol foway, instead of fixing such a price on his remedies as would afford him (when myriads wtre his customers) a fair and honorable pro 6', had apportioned the price of his piils and oint ment to the exigencies of each case and the la bility of the sufferer to pay lor his physical sal vation 1 \\ hy, in such a case, the great ofay sician would long ago have owned ail Eoroiu* in fee simple, and three-fourths of the remain der of the world—for tb** royalties and nobili ties of Lnrope were among bis earliest patients, but are still too provid to acknowledge that \hey owe their iives to the same simple hut all suffi cing remedies which have been brouglst, by Hol!oway%> •philanfhrophy, within reach of the meanest of their serfs '•// BtHcs Lett re "VT OTICE iary Board of Auditors of the r'iist Brigade, 16th Division, P, A|-,_tbat they are required to meet at the public bouse of Col.
