BEDFORD GAZETTE. I —BEDFORD, Pa ratit — ***- so, mm. B. F. Meyers, Editor and Proprietor First Fruits cf Lincoln's Election According to the promises and predictions ot blacli republican leaders, Lincoln's election was to bring us good times—prosperity to every thing and every body—peace to the country j on the slavery question —and in fact, every- : thing was to go "merry as a marriage beil."— Alas! and alack ! how sad the illusion. The very announcement of the success of Mr. Lin- j coin has well nigh ruined the integrity of our government, and has given business and financial matters a shock the effects of which will be felt for many a day to come. The warnings of Democratic statesmen and of the Democratic press, heedlessly passed over by the people in the recent election, are now j unfortunately fully verified. The people ol the South, justly alarmed for their safety, arej in a state of turbulent excitement which may soon end in lawiess and revolutionary move ments. The nullification of the Fugitive Slave Law by the enactment ofNorthern Legislatures, the mal-treatment,' and in some cases, the murder of Southern citizens by Northern mobs, w hen in pursuit of their fugitive or stolen property, the raid of Old Brown into Virginia, the "irrepressible conflict" speeches of Seward and Lincoln, together with the aggressive and inimical attitude of the Republican party in its platforms, have operated to int'ame the South ern mind to such a pitch of hostility toward the newly elected President, that secession and disunion have become the watchword, as it were, ol Southern safety and honor. South Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi and other Southern states are openly preparing for a severance from the remainder of the con federacy. As a natural consequence, the com "<•<•> relations between the North and the is paralyzed. Banks suspend and business generally is, prostrated ; money becomes scarce and "HARD TIMES," with their attendant ter rors, cast their gloom upon the land. Such i are the first fruits of the election of Abraham ! Lincoln. Instead of improving the condition i of the country, it has plunged us info ten-fold ! greater difficulties than we have ever yet ex- | perienced. And if the rnere anncunceaaciii f ol Liucoln's success was sufficient to involve j ua in so great a trouble, what would be the result, if his doctrines or those embodied in Re-' publican platform, were to be made the policy °f his Administration 7 Our only hope 19 that Mr. Lincoln will not dare to make an effort to . put his Anti-slavery theory into mactice. He; must recede from his Atwlition radicalism, or j this Republic,glorious as it has been in the, past and more noble and glorious as it might be ' in the future, will soon be but a faint echo ! of Jepaited greatness, another Rome reft of em pire and torn by the bloody feuds of rival and ! jealous factions. Another John Brown War. By accounts from Kansas published in the present issue, our readers will learn the alar ming intelligence that an armed descent has beep made by the Abolitionists upon the territory and property ol the Southern people. The notori ous MONTGOMERY, the companion and bosom friend of JOHN BROWN, with a chosen band of ■ fanatics, ruffians and outlaws, armed with Sharpe'a rifles, ,has taken possession of Fort Scott and other towns ou the Missouri border, and is carrying indiscriminate murder and ra pine into the country adjacent. Judge Wil liams (formerly from Somerset 111 this-State) and the other United States officers, were 'compelled to flee for their lives, and the citizens of Missouri on the Osage and Merriwater rivers, were leav ing their homes for rafety in the interior.— Montgomery's avowed purpose is to hold possession of Fort Scott and the towns along the border, until he will bave cleared out South Western Missouri of its slaves. Such is the oil which Northern Abolitionism pourt upon the troubled waters of Secession snd Disunion ' Blood, Southern blood, is upon the hand that the people of the South are asked to grasp in 7 token, of luture friendship! Thank Heaven, this crime against God and our country, cannot be laid at the door of the men who opposed Abraham Lincoln. Thank God that our ballot did not approve of the sentiment of the newly elected President, that slavery ought to be put in course of ultimate extinc tion ! "Thou canst not say I did it . Shake not thy glory locks at me." "ACbauge! A Change!" This was the cry of the black republicans be fore the late election, and deluded many honest people into voting for Lincoln. Well, they have got their "change." Lincoln is elected, and tire very first "change" is that made by the banks in suspending specie payments. How do you like yonr "change" Messrs. Republi cans. (Lf"Tbe secession of a rmnru>° -■ n —r —v" '""J "Of the case, but lb® jirospect certainly looks gloomy. Turning ''Union Savers.'' ABOLITIONISM ON THE BACK-TRACK. A few weeks ago ,when Democrats warned the people against the troubles that would inev itably follow the election of Lincoln, their ad monitions of danger were received with ribald sneers and insulting jibes. The crazy enthusi asts that followed the sectional banner of Lin coln, would have nothing to do with the "U --nion-savers," as they derisively called the De mocracy. It was "all a humbug, a stale elec tioneering cry," said they, "that this Union was in danger, or that anv trouble between the North and the South would result from Lin coln's "lection." But, now how changed! Dow that the predicted crisis of the Union is certainly upon us. These courageous, devil may-care Republicans, who were continually engaged in denouncing, vilifying and taunting the South, now fall upon their knees before us and a:k}u-; for God's sak", "to save the Unioo Their newspaper organs and their stump-oratora have suddenly imbibed a most fraternal and con ciliatory spirit toward their "Southern breth ren," as they now affectionately style them.— (They are no longer the Slave Oligarchy, but "our brethren !") Even their President elect makes it convenient to say a tew words at diff erent raiiroad stations in Illinois, to give the Southern people some reason to think that he will not attempt to carry out the doctrines of his platform. The latest conversion of a rabid enemy of the South to a Union-saver, is that of the Philadelphia Bulla'in t a rank Abolition con cern, and a paper that has done its full share in exasperating the people of the Southern states a gamst those of the North. In a recent article, headed "PRESERVE THE UNION," the Bulletin makes the following remarks (which if they had appeared in a Democratic paper four weeks ago, the Bulletin would have pro nounced dough-face-urn and toady-ism to the South) in regard*to the Nullification Lawa of this State : " But the men of the South, who are no frenzied, are asking the people ol the North to l do something else, bj' way of restoring confi dence and harmony. They ask (hat the Nor thern States repeal all such enactments as in any way interfere with the operation of the fed eral laws in reference to fugitives from labor— This is not an unreasonable request, and t! should be cheerfully and frankly complied with. The tenor of most of these State laws has been much misrepresented. But this matters little. Even if the laws were meaningless and inoperative, j yet if their titles or phraseology are offensive to | our Southern fellow citizens, if by any forced construct on they could be made to appear hos ; ute books. Thia is no time for punctilio. The Union is in danger, and the people of the free States can afford to make many sacrifices to save Jhey gJjould prompt , v an(J cheerfu| . 1 y comply with the demand made by the South 10 repeal every law that can possioiv be con strued into an interference with the federal Xr gD Up ° nthe Property of Southern We think We'rjn r*f'.l.. Pennsylvania Legislature, which is to meet in January next, will, without delav, repeal the statute of 184-7, which, although having no re ference to the present Fugitive Slave law, is still an offence to the people of the South. It is aimoet a dead letter, as it is ; and its contin uance is not needed. But even it it were, we could readily give it up, for the sake of resto ring peace to the country. The same mav be said ol the laws passed by other States, some of which are far more sevpre than ours, and were enacted with special reference to the Fugitive Slave law It is doubtful whether the repeal of these laws will satisfy ail the South. Still, as it is demanded by many Southern people as the only thing that can tend to abate the present excite ment, we should yieldNo the demand. Those who advocated the election of Mr. Lincoln should advocate such repeals. They owe it to the man whom they have called to'a place of such mighty responsibility, that they should, as tar as is possible, remove all obs'acles in the way of a peaceful and successful administration. It these offensive statutes remain unrepealed— supposing even that there be no secession— they would still be causes ol disagreement and quarreling during his whole term of office, and would seriously interfere with his efforts togovern the country properly and peacefully. Resolved, That we deplore and lament the madness and folly that proposes disunion ami secession, on the flimsy pretext that a majority of the people of the United States have exerci sed the right of elevating to the Chief Magistra cy, the candidate of their choice, aud sincerely trust that the good sense and patriotism of our Southern brethren will induce an early aban donment of such a scheme. The above is one of a series of resolutions passed by the black republican meeting on Tuesday night of Court week. It is a fair spe cimen of the mendacity and false presentment of political issues so generally resorted to bv our opponents during the late campaign. In the first place the Southern States do not pro pos/"diunion atnlG. cefsi.jn,"[merely because of the election of Mr. Liucolu. The people of the Sjuih say (and say it with entire truth) that the North has nullified a plain provision ol the Con stitution, in setting at defiance the Fugitive Slave Law, and that with Mr. Lincoln in the Presidential Chair, whose views are well known to be thoroughly anti-slavery, there is no lon ger any guaranty that their stolen or runaway negroes can be recovered under that law Besides, invasions of the slave states, by Aboli tion fanatics,are apprehended with just fear, un der the administration of an anti-siaverv Presi dent. Such are the reasons given by the Sou thern people for their present attitude toward the North, instead of the."flimsy {[pretext" re ferred to in the above resolution. Again, it is not true that "a majority of the people of the I United Slides have exercised the right of eleva j ting to the Chief MaoostrAr.v. „ thn.Jtandidate of 'y one million of the votes cast at the recent eiec .on. He ti a minonty p am] well o,d the author of the above resolution know il. La •'/, we would beg leave to express our agreeable astonishment at the tact that the au thor of the resolution io question, could have so far condescended from the grandeur of his mor al and political dignity, as to style those terri ble "barbarians," "oligarchs," "slave-ocrats," and "rugger-drivers" of South Carolina and Mississippi, bis "Southern brethren!" Verily, some men "can smile and murder while they smile," cau stab their fellow, whilst they af fectionately, inquire, "is it well with thee, my brother V' Resolved, That in the present state of af fairs, it is the duty of the people every where to express and maintain their fidelity to the Union of the States, and pledge themselves to the support and maintenance of the rights ol the people in every State, slaveholding or free, but at the same time to declare their readiness to stand by and defend the Union in every emergency.— King's resolutions passed at the Black Republican meeting on Tuesday night of Court week. What has brought about "the present state of affairs," Mr. King ? The unholy crusade of your fanaucal and sectional party against the South and her institutions, hat done it, sir ! It is a litltle late in ihe day, for you and your co agitators of the anti-slavery dogma # to begin talking about preserving Ihe Union and giving the Southern people their rights. A pretty way, indeed, you have had, hitherto, ot preser ving the Union and giving the Suuii her rights. Io 1556 you laid down your platfoim and said that the "peculiar institution" of the I South was one of the "relics of barbarism." In 1860 you vote for a candidate for President who declares that be ''hates slavery almost as much as any Abolitionist," that he is 19 favor ot "putting it in the course ot ultimate ex tinction," and that il thit\Union cannot endure permanently half dace and half free" whiist your great apostle of Republicanism, W. H. Seward, rays there is an '-irrepressible owilhct" between freedom and slavery, arid that the one must crush out the other. If you are a.Union man why did you not long ago discard and repudiate the men that hold such doctrinev ? Why did you not do as the Democratic party has done, at it still does and ever will con tinue to do, stand by the Constitutional lights j ol the people of all sections of the Union, and j ! turn your lace against and trown upon all [ i agitation calculated to bring the different por- i tio.'isof the Union into sectional conflict ? j Had you arid your party done this we would not now be called upon to "deplore and la- j inent" "the present slate ol affairs." From the Constitution. Renewed troubles in Kansas The following despatch, from an entirely Ye iiaole source, was received here yesterday : • "WARSAW, Mo., Nov. 21. ' ihe abolitionists, with arms newly impor ter. <rom Boston, or the East somewhere, under • mtgornery, from,.three to five hundred strong, and increasing, have attacked Fort Scott, and <roken opthr United State district court there, ttrW'Tfir their lives. They have also taken the towns on the lines of Missouri, the land offices, &c. They intend at once in vading Missouri.'' Montgomery is already known to our readers as a lawless miscreant, who, a? leader of ari equally lawless band of "free S ate" men, com mitted numerous outrages on the inhabitant; of Kansas during the former trouoles. We have no doubt that prompt and effective measures will be taken by the Government to suppress this insurrection, which, as a force of United States troops are in a situation to be readily moved against the insurrectionists, will probably be early accomplished. The. follow rng contains some additional in formation, being a letter addressed to Governor Stewart, of Missouri : CLINTON, MO.. Thursday, Nov 21, 1860. SIR : I am her* to inform the citizens of this place of the following facts, and I have been requested to present them to you as : governor of the State : the abolitionists, under, command of Montgomery and Director Pecoy son, to the number of 300 (o 500, armed *• i"th Sharpe's rifles, dragoon sabres, navy revolvers and bowe knives, have suddenly commenced a war of extreme ferocity on the law-abiding citizens of __ Southern Kansas in the counties of Lima and Bourbon. These arms arrived by the wagon load at or near Mount City about one month since, in boxes marked as donations for Kansas sufferers. Montgomery has been in Boston during a part of the summer, and re turned with plenty of money to enlist recruits. Many of his men ate newly imported. He has taken possession of Fort Scott, and other owns on the border, near the Missouri line., H ' has murdered 'Mr. Moore, a grand juror Mr. Hartison, Mr. Samuel Scott, Mr. Hindi, and obliged aii the United Slates olficers, incsding myself, to fly tor our lives. His own expessed design, made in a public speech, as If said without concealment, is to keep possessor) of fort Scott and other places near the .Vissouii line, to prevent a fire in the rear, wtile fie cleared out Southwest Missouri of Slavs. So he has carried out litteraliy his declare! pro gramme. The citizens of Missouri, ol Osage and Meri'.vater rivers, in Bates and Ver non, are flying from their houses into he in terior. He boasts that hp has money aod arms to equip and sustain 1,000 men. My court was broken up by (hem, the Uni | ted States court for the southern district and I I suspect they have seized,the records, tnd also of the land office, as he publicly doclafed that ! he woulu do so.

Where tlie Blame Bests—The north Drives the South to secessiou. The Albany Evening Journal , a high Lin coln authority, says, ".\othing Uns been done to injure or wrong the Soul h, and not king hos tile is even apprehended" So sa-.stlie lead ing Black Republican org3n of this city and, indeed, so say all the oigans of that party eve rywhere. They say the South is excited" about nothing, and they ridicule, mock and laugh at ; her. Let us see how the case stands. Lt us see if the North has been true to her constitutional obligations, and if the great stir :n the South de serves to be characterized as "much ado about nothing." When the thirteen original States formed the Union under which we live to dav, out may | not live to-morrow, twelve of the;n wereslave -1 holding States, '1 hey inserted in the Consti tution a clause providing lor the rendition of fugitive slaves to their masters. They even went so far as to legalize u.e African slave trade, prohibiting all interference with it betore the year 1808. i ne Northern slave-owners, finding that slave labor was not sufficiently remunerative in that region, sold their slaves to the citizens ol the ; Southern Slates. Thus profitably nJ ol their j slaves, they began to look oh slaveholders with ;an evil eye. They began to talk and write ; about slavery as immoral and wrong. They | next got to denouncing it, and to proposing ! Congressional legislation lor arresting its exten ' sion and for confining it to the States in which |it exists. From this they proceeded to devis° i measuies for its abolition everywhere. Nor • thern emissaries, under various pretexts, have ! gone South and made it their business to 3tir up j servile insurrections, and it is but a year siuce | one of the States, Virginia, was invaded by an ; armed force ol these fanatics, whose object was jto liberate all the slaves. But the anti-slave. | party at the .North get over these lawless c i.• — J /a g *U~ r --- -r.ij o.i. j i ow lei us see wni th, recognized authorities j ol the Northern States hare done, j The States ol Maine, New Hampshire, Yer j mom, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecti- , ; cut, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michi ■ gaa and VV isconsin have nullified that clause of ; the Constitution which prouues lor the return ; j of iugitive slaves to their owners, thus criminal- I |iy breaking faith with the South. This they ! ; iiave done through their Legislatures, with the I j approval ol their Governors and with theac j quiesbence ol their people. Some of these States i thiough t.ieir Legislatures, declare the master,] v. it >, under the Constitution, endeavors to re- j ' claim and recover his property, a malefactor: j wh, shall be puni-Ded with a 'fijne and impris- : | onineui. Some punish their citizens, who in : j obedience to the Fugitive Slave law, aid the! ( master in such efforts. Ail of them have adop- j | ted legislation alike hostile and hurtful to the' South, and in violation of the Constitution arid j i the Fugitive Slave law. Thy have followed j I up thisjoy the election, by the Free States alone, I ' ol Abraham Lincoln as President, who is their i chosen leader to carry on the war against sla-j very, against the South, and against the equali- i ty ol the Slates. . The South has submitted to all this until, a- ! farmed and disgusted by 'the growth and the I late signal success ol tiie pestilent sectionalism : which promises her nothing and threatens her j with unmixed evil, she declares that she will j submit no longer. She asks the Northern ; States to go back to a nullified Constitution, to | desist from wrong, to repeal hostile legislation ! and to keep laith with her. If the North shall i do this the South will be satisfied. If jhe North shall refuse, then the South will not remain in the Union to be oppressed, outraged and degra ded. The crisis is on us, and now is the lime for action. As we have before fsuggested, let steps be taken by means ol public meeting to call on the Governors of the free Stales to con vene their several Legislatures, that it may be decided whether they will repeal obnoxious and unconstitutional laws and give satisfactory as surances and guarantees tc the South, or wheth er the crusade the South shall be per sisted in. The responsibility is on the North. W hen the crash comes j when the Banks break ; when merchants and manufacturers shut up their establishments ; when Northern labor ers shall be thrown out of employment, and hun dreds ol thousands of unemployed and hungry people in the North shall clamor for work and bread, and clamor in vain, then will the people repent, when repentance will be unavailing of the great error they have committed, and in stead ot cursing the South, they will curse the demagogues and office seekers who have de ceived them.— Pennsylvania n.
