BEDFORD GJLZETTE. -BdOFORO, £*a.— FRIDAY DEI'. 7, 1861). B. F. Meyers, Editor and Proprietor What i 3 the cause ? A few months ago the prospect of a speedy restoration of the former financial prosperity of the' country, seemed fair indeed. An abun dant harvest had just been gathered, man ufactures again began to flourish, and every department of business once more resumed an aspect of activity and prosperity. The last faint trace of the great panic of 185?,, had and *we were about to emergeonce more from the clouds and darkness ct the much-bewildered ' Hard Tunes." So matters stood as the sun went down on the 6th o' November Hst. That day was the last of tfce new era of "Good Times." All over the ti ll ton there was alarm and consternation in the minds of the leading business men of the nation. Banks began to suspend, stocks to Mepreciate, and merchants to fail. Commerce between the North and the South suddenly ceased, as j if palsied by some unseen and supernatural j power. As an inevitable consequence, | thousands of mechanics, operative! and labor-! ing men in the North, have been thrown out j of employment, without any means of main-j taining themselves and their families through j the winter near at hand, whilst those who are i in less dependent circumstances, are again re- j duced to the straits and difficulties undergone during the pressure of 1857 and ISSS. The j question naturally presents itself, what is the cause of this sudden revulsion ? and the an swer is readily made, The election of a section al President lt is the success of the candi date of that parly which owes its origin to and is founded upon hatred of the institutions of the Southern half of this Union. Had the advice of Democratic statesmen been followed, no ' such calamity as now threatens the American j people could have befallen us. Had the peo ple crushed the serpent Abolitionism, instead . ol eating of the forbidden fruit which it proffered them, we would not now be called j upon to pass through a severe and trying j financial crisis, nor (what is worse) to witness, j perhaps, ere many days, the disruption of our ! loved and gloiious Republic. It was not so when the earlier Presidents of the Republic * were k chosen. It was not so when Jackson, Harrison, Polk, Taylor, Pierce and Buchanan j ■were elected. And why I Because they wert National men and sectionalism was their j especiat loathing. Would to God the same could be said of Abraham Lincoln ' ''The Flag of our Union Forever!" Ever since we have had the right to vote, j in lact ever since when a9 a beardless boy we first learned from the historic page, the difficul- j ties and trials that attended the foundation of the glorious Government under which we i live, it has been our ardent and cherished senti ment that this Union ought to be regarded as the shield, the very Palladium, of our liber ties, and that in order to insure iu strength and permanence, the Constitution, the bond which holds the Union together, should be faithfully observed by the people of all the States and that a spirit of fraternal charity and kindness, should be cultivated between the different sections. For this reason we opposed, during the last campaign, the "Republican" agitators of the North, as well as those men in the South, who, irritated and annoyed by the aggressions of Northern fanaticism, seek for redress of their grievances in secession and disunion. Our position is unchanged. We are for the Union as we have always been— But whilst we are in favor of maintaining the Union at all hazards, facts compel us to lay the biame of its present,'peri I wholly charge of the Abolitionists and Republicans of the North. "Honest Old Abe!" The only reply that our poor "Republican" brethien can make when it is charged upon them that the election of their candidate for the Presidency has caused the present financial panic, is that Mr. Lincoln i 9 not yet in power. Very well, Messrs. Republicans, if be is net in power, bl9 platform is. Mr. Lincoln was elec ted upon the principle of hostility to the "oecu liar institutions" ot the South, avowing himself "in favor of putting slavery in the course of ultimate extinction," saying that he "hated slavery almost as much as any Aboliiionist," and declaring that "thia Union cannot continue to endure permanently balf free and half slave" This is the gist of the policy which the N >rth has just endorsed, and by endorsing which, ha? well nigh driven the Slave States out of the Union and has certainly brought upon ua severe commercial and pecuniary dis tress. TfceSouth takes this for granted as Lin coln's future policy. His partitans insisted during the campaign, that he was a peculiarly "honest" man, and the South takes them at their word, and believes that he was "honest" aod meant what be said, when he made the above quoted declarations. Who would ask the South to postpone her alarm, if Lincoln is an "hoet" man and intends to takxee bia Anti-slavery doctrines I Local and Miscellaneous. ... .There is a place in South Carolina called "Punch 'em Slightly." . .. .When liars die and can lie oo lon ger, their epitaphs generally lie for them. ... .Vanity Fair thinks a link* that could be easily broken is Seward's L:a-colnism. ....A galley siave—a compositor oo a morning paper. ... .A slave in Charleston, S.

Wendell Phillips says the "spectre hand of John Brown lifted Abraham Lincoln to the Presidency." And that "John Brown was be hind the curtain at Chicago when Lincoln step ped out in Iront." ... .Bloody Run, in this county, was incor porated into a Borough at our last Court. . .. .Henry K.

It contains a vast a mounf of legal mfo: mation and is certainly a very uselul book. H. C. Reamer is the agent of Mr. James in this place, at whose store the work will be on sale hereafter. ... .A great reaction is already taking place in political matters. At the charter election in Norwafk, Conn., a few days ago, the Dem ocratic candidate for mayor, was elected by a large majority, andon a re-canvass of one of the legislative districts in Massachusetts where the candidates had run a tie vote, the Democratic candidate was elected by over 100 majori ty- ....POOß HOUSE APPOINTMENTS.— At the meeting of the Directors of the Poor, on Tues day last, MR. GEO. W. WEIDEL was appointed Steward for the ensuing year. Mr. Weidel's appointment is a good on e and we have no doubt will give genpral satisfaction. A num ber of the best men in the county were appli cants. The retiring Steward, Mr. Leary, goes out with great credit, having for three years past discharged the duties of the position with Cnrrpftnpca VI- v A Ir IK ert Miller, is continued, as are also the rest of the officers. ... .The Abolition organ tries to creep out , of the lie it uttered som* time ago to the effect that Lincoln had 181 majority over Foster in this county, by saying that it was a typograph ical error. If so, why did it not make the cor rection in the next issue t We always correct j typographical errors, especially if they should happen to make us tell a falsehood. ....BEDFORD LYCEUM.-— The members of •this Lyceum, will meet at the Couit House, on Saturday evening next, at 6i o'clock. Perfor mances for said evemngj: Declamation by John Palmer ; essay by A. M. Raub. Question for : discussion, ''Has a State a right to secede ?" ; affirmative O. E Shannon, negative A. King. The public are invited to attend. ....MEETING of CONGRESS. —Congrest as sembled on Monday last. Nothing si importance transpired. Judge Dcuglas and his triends are ta king strong Union ground and the President, it is said, will also oppose Ihe Secession move ment. The Message will be laid before our readers as soon as it is published. FROM MEXICO. —Additional news from Mex ico confirms beyond any doubt the capture of Guadalajara and the complete rout of Marquez. • At last accounts the constitutionalists were al ready in possession of Tacubaya, Gaudalupe, and other places in the vicinity of the capital, i and it was believed that on the approach of the army from Gaudalajara the city would at onc e surrender almost without a struggle. The courts have decided that there must be a pro rata distribution of the s<loo,ooo recovered from Degollado. CAFT. M'LANE'S REMAINS. —The remains of the lamented Capt. M'Lane, who was killed in .conflict with the Indians in New Mexico, have been sent to Fort Defiance, and will remain tbere until the termination of the campaign, when they will betaken to Fort Albuquerque, tne present home of his afflicted family. The entire army seems to have been exceedingly pained at tne loss of this gallant officer. THANKSGIVING IN NEW YORK.—Thanksgiv ing was very generally observed in New York city and vicinity on Thursday. In most of of the churches sermons were preached bearing moie or lessNipon the present aspect of political aGairs. Nearly all of these sermons were ol a conservative character. The day passed oB without accident or senoui disorerd. Cjr~A poor widow in Lansing, Michigan, named Mrs. Sparrow, who has several childien depeodeot upon her, was "consoled," the oth er day, by the intelligence that $20,000 had been bequeathed to her recently by a dying rel ative. We wish all "poor widows could get such bequeets just at this time. Movements of (be Abolitionists, From the Harrisburg State Sentinel of the 24th inat. The following letter signed James Redpath, Secretary, was recently received by Governor Packer, inviting him to participate in the pro posed meeting at Tremont Temple, in Boston, on the anniversary of the execution ot John Brown. Governor Packer promptly returned the invitation, with the subjoined reply, writ ten on a blank page ol iMr. Redpalh's letter: LETTER TO GOVERNOR PACKER. Boston, November, 16, 1860. SSR : A number ot young men, unconnected, at this time, with any organization, but earnest ly desirous of devoting themselves to the work ot eradicating slavery in the United States, re spectfully invite you to meet them in a public Convention, to be held at Tremont Temple in this city, 011 Monday, the 3d of December next, and there address them in reply to the question so vital to the interests and the honor of our country and the progress of freedom in the world ; " How can American slavery be abol ished ?" It seems to them that the anniversary of the death of John Brown, who, on the 3d of De cember, 1859, was killed for attempting to de cide this problem in the mode that he believed to be the most efficient, is an occasion peculiar ly appropriate lor the discussion ot our duty to the race for whom he suffered, and more espe cially for the unfolding ot practical methods of achieving the holy object he desired to attain by his descent 011 Harper's Ferry, Virginia. An invitation, therefore, will be exlended to the leaders and representatives of all the diff erent anti-slavery bodies, and to various men ot eminence who have done honor to their own souls by advocating the cause of impartial free dom. . Every one, thus invited, is expected, in his speeches or letters, to confine himself exclusive ly to the great question of the day, for it would be a work of supererogation, now to defend John Brown, and a useless waste of time to eu logize him. Leaving both of these duties to the coming ages, let us seek to continue his life by striving to accomplish what he left us to fin-! ish. An immediate or speedy answer will greatly oblige, by enabling us to make the necessary ar tangements on a plan sufficiently extensive. For tile Committee, JAMES REDPATH, Secretary. COMMITTEE : C. W.

EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, Harrishurg, Pa., ) November 21, 1860. J Sir : In mv opinion, the young men whose names are attached to the loregoing letter, would better serve God ar.d their country by at tending to their own business. John Brown was rightfully hanged, aod his fate should be a warning to others having jimijar proclivities. Governor of Penn'a. Mr. James Redpath, Boston. The Kansas Troubles. WARSAW, MO., Dec. I.— A special messen ger who arrived here to-night, brings the following important items from the West. It is from a reliable source : CLINTON, HENRY CO., Dec. 2.--That that public mind may not be misinformed and misled uy tff many emissaries the Abolitionists are runnirs to and fro through the country, as we are i>- formed, and to justify those who have act'd promptly to prevent the accomplishment of tie dark designs of the Abolition marauders uncei the notorious Montgomery, in Kansas, and r the borders, we state the following facts r addition to those heretofore given. The arme Abolitionists have continued their murderct operations in Bourbon and Linn counties, Kat sas, hunting down and driving from the Teiriti ry ail men who have disapproved of the robberies, murders, etc., and who have in manner acted to sustain the laws. The roai leading eastward from the Territory, have bei crowded with wagons end persons, male at female, escaping from these fiends. Jn one ii stance a mother gave birth to an infant on tl road, near Pappinville, in this State. On Monday night of this week, a Mr. Bis op, who lived on the Osage river, about 1 miles north ot Fort Scott, having been arous by a noise in the night, and going to the do was instantly shot down and killed, I body being pierced by several balls. We have seen here for several days waga loaded with goods, furniture, See., passi through not only from the Territory but fr< West Point in this State, and other plai within the line. Families living on and ni the old Jackson place within jthis State, ha been notified to leave their homes by ( these o' laws, and having no means of defence, ha fled to Butler and (places in the interior security, leaving their homes and effects, Yesterday the slaves owned by those liv: near the line, (25 miles or more within State, arrived here for safe keeping. Thus hi the citizens of Bales and Vernon count since the commencement of the insurrecli been threatened with the destruction ol life) property. Being without adequate meanrf defence or protection up to this time, this * of things has continued. Capt. Dark, of Butler, has arrived here his* way for arms and ammunition, and & biml we have learned some of the ab facts. Signed by D. D. Stone, K. K. Murwell, Williams, Wm. Dark, B. J. Boone, Gf Worth, Joseph Bond, W. A. Duncan, Jt I Davis, J. M. Caule, B. L. Quarles, John, Rodgers, B. Halcomb. LATER PARTICULARS. Captain Dark briber stated that the citfc of West Point, fearing an attack from .Mont gomery s party, held a meeting a few days smce, calling on theSheriffot Bates county to raise a force lor the protection of the border.— j Captain Dark, who is Deputy Sheriff o( I>Ae3 county, despatched forty muskets to the citizens there, who stand guard every night to prevent a surprise. This is the case also in Pappinviile and all the border towns. A large meeting ot citizens of this county was held to-day to take into consideration the border troubles. G. H. Worth acted as Presi dent and James G. Alexander as Secretary. Speeches were made by Colonel J. Davis, Col

onel Tutt, Judge Williams, R. K. Morrill and others. WARSAW, Dec. 2.—Gen. Frost's brigade en camped last night between Calhoun and Bel mont. They are moving slowly, having be come loot-sore from marching over the rough roads. Gen. Parsons passed through Calhoun yester day on a secret mission to the border. At the last accounts Montgomery wa9 en camped near Fort Scott, and defied the world to take him. It is thought that he will Lave when he hears of the approach of Gen Maruey and Gen. Frost. The people in ail the border counties strong ly endorse the action of Gov. Stewait in send ing out troops. If they can only catch Mont gomery, a general day of thanksgiving will be held in the Osage valley. Gen. Frost's command will encamp to-night at Calhoun. Two suspicious characters, suppo sed to be Montgomery's spies, were seen yester day in the Northern part of Henry county, ma king tracks in the diiection of Fort Scott. Montgomery's men are all through the coun try* g' v ' n g out reports to mislead the people. These frequent outrages in the West, by Aboli tion bands, are kindling in that section a strong disunion spirit. THE ECONOMY OF HEALTH. —This busy na tion of Americans have 12,000,000 working people, whose services may be estimated at;s2 j a day, and their annual loss by sickness at an average of ton days each in the year. This J gives a total loss of $240,000,000 a sum three ! times as large as the whole cost ol the General , Government, including ihe Army, Navy, Post j Offices, Legislators, Foreign Ministers and all. ; The amoun weighs over six hundred tons in pure gold. A large proportion of this costly suffering might, be averted by attention to diet, cleanli ness, and above all, by the proper use of the right remedy in season. When a25 cent box of Ayer's Pills will avert an attack of illness- | which it would take several days to recover from, or a dollar bottle ol Aver's Sarsapanlla 1 will expel a lurking disorder that would ' " i the sufferer to his back for weeks or months, does take any figures to show the good econ- , omy of the investment When Fever and your" fi/c oafVi' you" is It worth" the ' dolfar "ft' costs for his Ague Cure to have the villainous disorder expelled, which it doe, ?U rely and j quickly 1 When you have taken a cold is it i prudent to wait until it has settled on the lungs, 1 when days or weeks or months must be spent | in trying[to cure it, even if it can be cured at ! all, or is it cheaper to lake Ayer's Cherrv P.-cto- : ral, costing a few shillings, and remove the j trouble before it is serious 1 It takes no wis- ' dom to decide. SWINDLER IN SYRACUSE. — A confidence man has been operating in Syracuse, N. V. His manner of procedure was to drop into a hotel or store in a quiet, easy way, and approaching the proprietor in a friendly manner, would state that he was a clerk employed by some one of the leading business firm 3of our city, and having use fiir a small sum of money be fore morning, when he would obtain it of his employers and repay it, was compelled to a*k the loan of S2J, to secure which he would leave his gold watch, worth at least three or four times that amount. The watches left as security, appear by gaslight to be quite showy andj elaborate time-pieces, in fine gold hunter cases . but when exposed to daylight, thev are be poor things, the works next to woithless, and the cases of "Philadelphia gold." The highest appraisal of their value is eight dollars. The imposition wag discovered very soon after it was perpetrated in each instance, and the police notified to the occurrence!, but nothing has been heard of the "spruce youn<* j man," who "would surely pay the borrowed j money early in the morning." TERRIFIC SCENE—A Thousand Animals Burnt Alive ! —We announced the burning of the Pacific at Uniontown, Ky., one of the fi nest steamers on the western waters. She had a very large quantity of live s t oc k on and the burning of these poor creatures must have been a sickening sight One account says Mr. Robert Ford, a passenger, cut the halter of one of his fine horses, which swam ashore.—A large bullock also swam out but died as soon as it reached the shore. The scene ol the burn ing boat and its thousand head of live stock, all tied stake, a prey to the devouring flames, was fearful and horrible in the extreme. There were seven hundred and fifty sheep, and one hundred and thirty head of fat cattle, mules and horses, all burnt alive, with no chance of escape. In addition to the live stock was up wards of three tons of pork, bacon and flour on board, which, together with tbe destruction of the splendid steamer, involved a loss ol nearly SIOO,OOO. Several large manufacturing establishments io Richmond have discharged the greater por tion of tbeir workmeo, and others may have occasion to do so, in view of the squally times abead. THE PRINCE or WALES AT HOME. —The sale return to England, altera long and dangerous passage, ot the Prince of Wales, caused general ; rejoicing, but the courtesies shown him in the United States seem to have touched most deep ly the Eoglish heart. All the journals are un reserved in their acknowledgement of our A merican hospitality, and they fully realize that in the honors paid here to the heir apparent to the British throne, our democratic population and their official representatives intended to manifest their good will to a kindred people and a friendly nation.—The London jYews in an editorial says : "The Prince has seen a nation of soldiers without an army—civil order without a police 1 —wealth, luxury and culture, without a court or an aristocracy. He has learned to mingle with a busy crowd of men without the inter vention of chamberlains and courtiers, he has found respect without certmony, and honor without adulation." The London papers give glowing accounts ol the reception of the Prince on his return home. The Times says : The Prince proceeded to Windsor Castle a midsUthe hearty cheers of the inhabitants, the tiring ola royal salute from the corporation or dinance, and the ringing of joyous peals from the bells ol the Chapel Royal of St. George and St. John' 3 church. The ro3'al cortege was lighted through the High street and Castle hill bv a splendid electric light Irom the house of Mr. C. P. L. Russell. The Prince was in the best of health and spirits, and apparently under no fatigue after so long a journey. CINCINNATI HOG TRADE. —The Price Cur rent ol Wednesday says : The market lor hogs j became more depressed, and packers having \ pretty generally withdrawn Pom the market, j they became unsaleable, pxcept to a very limit- j ed extent towards I he clo3" of the week, even j at the reduced prices, but drovers having paid j a price for their hogs above the current rat-, j showed a great declination to sell at the decline, j so that they also withdrew their stocks Irom ! the market, and the receipts since Saturday j have been quite light, and the number in the 1 market small, but large enough to supply the i existing demand. Saturday and 'Monday $5.75 i and 5.80 were about the rates obtainable for 1 good hogs, and no anxiety to buy or sell at these rates. On Tuesday, however, small sales were made at -$G and $5 90. There are ; but five or six [houses doing anything ; over i thirty are holding off, waiting lower prices. 1 ANOTHER RICH MAN CUTS OFF HIS DAUGH TER FOR MARRYING WITHOUT HIS CONSENT.— | Burtis Skidmore, of New York, worth nearly ! half a million dollais, recently deceased, left a will bequeathing one hundred dollars to his 1 daughter, and the remainder of his property to his son. In 1856, the family of Mr Skidmore ; consisted of a wife, son and daughter. The | daughter, Marian L., was wooed and won by ! Simon Camancho, at that time Venezuela Con i snl, and now Secretary ot legation of Venezue posed to the match and the daughter married j without his consent. During his lifetime the ; parties were not reconciled. Mrs. Skidmore, , however, who lias since died, relented and be | came friendly to her daughter, but the hostile : feeling ol the father was unchangeable. The ! will is to be contested. J I IRE AT READING—LANTZ'S PERIODICAL , BUCK STORE BURNT OUT.—RCADIMG, Dec. 3. file extensive book, stationary and newspaper store ol H. A. Lantz, on the Market s'reet Square, in this city, caught fire on Saturday night, about !1 o'clock, and was, with its con tents, destroyed. Mr. Lantz's loss is about eighteen thousand dollars, and insured for fif teen thousand. Mr. Hoflman, owner of the property, sustains a loss of two thousand dollars, fully insured. The fire is supposed to have o riginated from the flue of the heater. Mr. Laotz will still continue the uevvs business as usual. ■ MORE HONOR TO CAPT WILSON. —The gat ■ lant captain ot the Minnie Schiffer, who re j scued the crew and passengers of the burning steamer Connaught, has been awarded a gold chronometer and chain, his mate a telescope, and each of the crew $lO, by the Liverpool Hoard of Trade. As a further reward, the owners of the steamer have to the captain, and si>o J to the officers and crew, and Mr. William Malcolmson, the chairman of ihe company, has sent Capt. Wilson a check for SIOO as a persons gift. OUR MINISTER TOPERO.— John B. Clay, who is or> his way home from P<ru, is a veteran diplomatist. He went from Pennsylvania in 1830, with John Randolph, as his Secretary ot legation at St. Petersburg, where he after wards acted in the same capacity with Mr. Buchanan, who has ever since been his friend. In 183S,Mr. Clay was transferred to Vienna, where he was secretary of legation until 18*5, when he was restored to his position at St. Petersburg by Mr. Buchanan, then Secreta ry of State. In 18*7, Mr. Buchanan obtained from President Polk the appointment of charge d affairs to Peru for Mr. Clay, and in 1853 be was made a minister plenipotentiary.
