BEDFORD GAZETTE. —BEDFORD, l*a.— FRIDAY APRIL 12, IS6I. B. F. Meyers, Editor & Proprietor. CALL AND SETTLE. We ate compelled lo call upon all person" indebted to us, to make payment as soon as they conveniently can. Our necessities are urgeut and v:e must have money. We shall confidently expec' ail our Iriends who may be in attendance- at the earning Court, lo pay up their arrearages. We hope this appeal will not be in vain. J CIVIL WAR. The so-called "peace policy" of the Lincoln Administration has all at once been turned info one of blood and horror. As the white and placid moon when storms are gathering in the firmament, sometimes changes her wonted pal lor to a lurid red, so the fickle "powers that be," have suddenly yielded up their prolessed desire lor peace and are now engaged in the wicked and desperate attempt to precipitate up on the country a conflict, unnatural and unne cessary, brutal and horrible, and calculated to bring destruction, famine and desolation to the hearlh-etone of every American family. It is r.ow almost certain that the pretence of peace on tfie part of Lincoln, was a mere ruse to gain time for preparation for war ; to lull the sece ded states ir.to security, and bring about the ad journment of the Conventions in the Border Slave Slates without any definite result. This hypocritic policy, Mr. Lincoln, doubtless, im agined, would not be discovered by the Sou thern people until too late to resist its consum mation. How sadh', how lamentably he has erred, he will learn when Maryland, Virginia and the remainder of those slave stales which have so firmly and nobly stood by the Union, shall have joined hands and shouldered mus kets with their brothers ol the Southern Con federacy. Too late will he then discover that a bold and straight-forward course, an open and unconcealed front, eveu though it had been warlike, would have been far better for broken and detracted nation over whose desti nies he presides. Too late also, may he rec ognize the fact that the adoption by his Admin istration of some one of the numerous plan 3 suggested lor a pacific adjustment of the Sou thern difficulties, would have been ineffably preferable to the barbarous wager of battle to which he has chosen lo resort. When he shall behold his country lorn and bleeding, the prey of civil teuds excited and precipitated bv his own immediate agency ; when the cruel fe rocity of the liberated slave shall bring fire and rapine to the homes of the North, as weil as to the plantations ol the South ; when this lovely land, ere while an Eden of love and peace, shall havtfbeen turned into a very hell of hate and strife , Mr. Lincoln and bis partizansmay learn pray that the curse placed upon their polit ical sins may be removed. Perhaps, says one, civil war will not bring all this. Fiiend, it has never brought {less. Do you rempmber Greece ? Rome ? York and Lancaster ? Thte French Revolution ? Do yon remember the disasters that resulted to mother England when she at tempted to coerce our lathers, her children ? Rut how much better would it have been if Mr. Lincoln hafl made the Crittenden Compro mise, or even the Peace Conference Plan, a , measure of his Administration. The Slavery question would have been settled. No civil strife would have ensued. The adoption of the Crittenden plan, would have brought back into the Union all ol the seceded States, for their President, Jefferson Davis, their Vice Presi dent, Mr. Stephens, and even Mr. Toombs, expressed themselves satisfied with that meas ure il acceded to by (he "Republicans."— When this sectional conflict shall rage, when the Northern man shall be called upon to bathe his fraternal sword in his own blood flowing ?n th a veins of his Southern brother, let it be remembered that this unjust and unholy war could have been avoided, but that Mr. Lincoln and his Cabinet peremptorily refused to make any compromise with the Southern people, stolidly insisting upon construing the Constitu tion as they please, no matter how the Supreme Court, the proper anil only tribunal erected for the decision of' Constitutional questions, may expound it. WORE REPUBLICAN ECONOMY. The People to pay the Piper ! Those particularly honest and scrupulously economical gentlemen, the politicians of the Disunion Black Republican party, are begin ning to exhibit some sjiecimens ol their speciali ty in saving the dear people from corrupt and burdensome legislation. After their howls of disapprobation at the conduct of Democratic officials, it was hardly to be expected that they themselves would be guilty of such profligacy as the following : IN THE STATE SENATE, APRIL 21, 1851. Mr. BOUND, Rep., read in place an act to pay the expenses of the reception and entertain ment of the President Mr. BOUND moved that the Senate proceed to the consideration of the above bill. The first and only section was read. It authorizes the State Treasurer to pay the sum of $2,115 expenses incurred. The items of the total were called for, and given by Mr. BOUND, as follows : Colder, horse hire $178.00 Continental Hotel refreshments 97.50 Coverly, (Jcnes House) 640.00 Committee, each, SIOO 2,200.00 2,115.50 Here we have the cost of the visit of Abra ham Lincoln to Harrisburg, involving an ex panse ol $2,115.50, an outlay unnecessarily and extravagantly large, entailed ufn the over-burdened shoulders ol the taxpayers ot Pennsylvania. Mr. Lincoln spent just about j twelve hours in Harrisburg. and yet his hotel ! bill is $64-0.00, and the Committee appointed by the Legislature to wait upon him are to be paid at the rate of SIOO each! This is "Honest Old Abe" for you with a vengeance ! When did Mr. Buchanan ever ask his fellow citizens to pay his expenses when on a visit o any of the States of the Union? Never! He was a plain, Democratic citizen, paid his own hotel bills, and never attempted to play the lion at the expense ot his fellow citizens. THE GLORIOUS REACTION. THE SOBER SECOND THOUGHT' j "OLD ABE" HEARS DISTANT THUNDER ! We give below a few extracts of telegraph ic lightning which have recently given Oid Abe and his Administration a peculiar pain in the region of the fifth rib. There are more of the same sort in the political atmosphere. It the Southern folks will give us a little more time, we will rid the North of the pestilerous party that has arrayed the two sections in an attitude of hostility. The States Rights De mocracy, the Constitutional Union men of the country, are determined to uproot and extermi nate everv seed and off-shoot of sectional <a na'icism. As witness the following brilliant and significant victories: THE RHODE ISLAND ELECTION. Defeat of the Republicans—Re-election of Governor Sprague—Loss of two Republi can Congressmen. PROVIDENCE, R. 1., April 3, midnight.—The State election was held to-day, with the fol lowing result : The Republican ticket, headed by James Y. Smith, for Governor, is defeated. Governor Sprague, the Demociatic Union candidate, is re-elected by a large majority.— The Legislature is of the same political char acter. The Democratic Union candidates for Con gress, William P. Sheffield from the Eastern, and George H. Brown, from the Western Dis tricts, are elected over the late Republican mem bers, Messrs. Robinson and Brayton. CONNECTICUT ELECTION. The Democrats elect two of the four Con gressmen in this State, being a clear gain. The Republicans elect their Governor by about 1500 maj., being a Republican loss from last fall ol nearly 9000. CLEVELAND MUNICIPAL ELECTION. CLEVELAND, April 2.—The City election yesterday resulted in the choice of Edward S. Flint, Democrat, as Mayor. The entire Dem ocratic ticket is probably elected. MUNICIPAL ELECTION. ATTICA, April 3.—At the village election, field at Rome, N. Y., yesterday, the Democrats elected all the village officers and two-thirds of the Ward officers. The majorities average 350. George Barnard is chosen President. ST. LOUIS MUNICIPAL ELECTION. ST. LOUIS, April 2.—ln the municioal elec tion yesterday the Anti-Republican ticket was elected by from 2,000 to 3,000 majority. Th "Unconditional Party" ticket, having Mr. Howe for its candidate <ot#Mayor, was success ful in only two wards. CLEVELAND, 0., April 2.—The municipal election at Sandusky yesterday, resulted in the election ol the Democratic candidate for Mayor, by 155 majority. The Democratic candidates lor Treasurer and Solicitor, were elected ; also two Republicans and three Democrats as C'oun cilmen. CINCINNATI, April 2—Full returns of the city election yesterday show a Democratic Union average majority of 2,800. BROOKLYN ELECTION. BROOKLYN, N. Y., April 6ih.—The Demo crats have carried this city by fi oin -1000 to 6000 majority. The Great Reaction. One of the most striking evidences of the change that has taken place in public sentiment at the North in regard to the continued agila i tion of the subject of slavery, is found in the recent action of the Philadelphia Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, on a re port from the Committee on the State of the Chuicft, recommending to the General Con ference to repeal the Chapter on Slavery, and declaring a division of thejConference by State lines inexpedient at this time. The" report in cluded the two following resolutions : Resolved, That we concur in the resolutions of the East Baltimore Conference, requesting the General Conference, at its next session, to repeal the Chapter on Slavery ;. and instead thereof, empowereach annual Conference,with in whose bounds the institution exists, to make such regulations upon this subject as in their judgment may best subserve the interest of the Redeemer's Kingdom among them. Resolved, In view of our present national difficulties and embarrassments, and the con sequent dis'urbed condition of the public mind on the one hand, and the conflicting opinions ol our churches in Delaware and Maryland on this subject, we deem it inexpedient to divide the Philadelphia Conference by the State lines at this time. But we recommend all the Quarterly Conferences of the Peninsula, du ring the coming year, to consider this matter, and give such expression of their working as may aid in determining the action of this body at its next annual session. The resolution in favor of the repeal of the Slavery Chapter, was adopted by a vote of 174. yeas to 35 nays ; the second resolution by a vote of 143 yeas to 31 nays ; a call for the previous question on the adoption of the report as a whole was then sustained by the decisive vote of 181 yeas to 5 nays—showing'the determina tion of the Conference not to allow the once exciting question to provoke a debate—and it was finally adopted by general assent.—Read ing (iazeJte. Local and Miscellaneous. .... We are informed that the nominal editor j ol the Inquirer, lias been appointed to a second j class cleikship at Washington, under Simon Cameron. We have often wondered how any man, or any half a man, could swallow the filth the aforesaid editor uttered against Came ron in 1855. We see it alt now. The pro mise of a little office, was the salad that made the "Buzzard Feast" palatable. ... .Mr. G. W. WEIDEL, the newly appoin ted Steward of the Poor House, has been in stalled, and is now in the active discharge of the duties pertaining to his otfice. The crow ded state of our columns precluded us Irom making a notice of a very pleasant day spent at the Poor House on the occasion of the last monthly meeting of the Directors. Suffice it, at this late day, to say, that we found every thing in excellent order, the public properly well taken care of and the paupers comlorlably clothed and properly fed and attended. Messrs. Amos and Keinery wpre in attendance, perfu ming their duties as Directors with great care and fidelity. The dinner prepared on the \ occasion, by the family of the Steward, afior | ded to our mind ample evidence that the Poor House will surely have an excellent house wfe ! during th'e term of the present Steward. Mr. ! Leary, the late Steward, carries with him the ' good wishes ol many friends, having discharged | the duties of the otfice with correctness and j fidelity. ... .An election was recently held in West Providence township, to change the place of holding the election in said township. The following was the For Bloody Run, 27 " Joseph Fisher's, 39 " David Sparks' School House, 52 . . . .The difference between Black Republi can Unionism and that ol Democrats and Con servatives, is this : Tlie'Republicans are in fa vor of compelling the Southern people to stay in the Union and submit to the working of the Government under the Black Republican con struction of the Constitution. On the other hand, the true Union men are in favor of ma king the Constitution, as expounded by the tribunal established for that purpose by the Constitution itself, the bond of Union between the North and the South. This is the whole difference. Is it hard to decide which is right ? .... We understand that tbe Messrs. Baer, of Somerset, are making preparations to bore for oil in Hermon's Bottom, in tbe Western part of Ihis county. It is said that the "surface in dications" are excellent, and those skilled in oil-ology assure us that the geological forma tion in that region is similar to that of the great oil regions in the western part of this State.— One thing is certain, if the oleaginous fluid ex ists in Hermon's Bottom, those Baers are bound to scratch it out. ....The following are the appointments made by tbe late M. E. Con fere r>> \ at Chambersburg, for this (Juniata) district . Presiding Elder, Rev. G. D. CHENOWITU. Hotlidaysbtirg, F. B. Snyder. Altoona, W. L. Spottswood. Woodbury, J. A Melick, J.B. Mann.

Several anonymous articles are re ceived, but as we never publish such without kuowing the author's name, they will not ap pear. ~. .We learn with profound regret t h e sud den death of a bright and promising young lad, the second son of Hon. E. M. Sciirock, one of the members of the House of Represen tatives from this district. The bereaved father has our heartfelt sympathy in his loss. ....Rev. S. Kepler, the new ly installed Methodist Minister at this place, preached his first sermon on Sunday last. It is highly spo ken of by all who heard it. Wanted—A Policy. The New York Times , one of the most for midabie organs of the Republican party, opens its guns upon the Lincoln Administration with deadly effect. With every disposition to fur nish support, it is compelled to administer cen sure. An extract will serve to show the opin ion entertained by many of Mr. Lincoln's party friends ot the conduct of his Adrmnistration : It is idle to conceal the tact that the Admin istration thus far has not met public expecta lion. The country feels no more assurance as j to the future—knows nothing more of the pro bable results of.the secession movement—than j it did on the day Mr. Buchanan left Washing ton. It seeins no indications of an Administra tive policy adequate to the emergency—or, indeed, of any policy beyond that of listless waiting to see what may "turn up." * * The fact is, our government has done abso lutely nothing towards carrying the country through the tremendous crisis which is so rapidly and so steadily settling down upon us. It allows everything to drift— to float along without guidance or impulse of any kind.— This might do well enough, if the Southern States were pursuing the same policy. But while we are idle, tfiey are active. While we leave everything at loose ends they make everything tight and and snug lorj the coming storm 'NEWS FROM WASHINGTON CITY.' We mike the following extracts from tele- | | graphic despatches received by the Philadel- I phia Inquirer of a late date : ANXIETY AND PREPARATION. There is an uneasy and anxious feeling man ifested by everybody who comes within imme diate range of the Government, that indicates that the comparative calm existing for the last month is about being broken up by storms.— The Departments ol War and the Navy are a live with the proceedings necessarily antece dent to great undertakings by sea or by land. Ihe Cabinet preserve a piofound and ominous silence, but hold frequent and long sessions, in which it is certain that tlie Southern complica tions occupy more of their time than the wran glings of office-seekers, 'to the great disgust of the latter. OFF FOR THE WARS. Some of the officers who have just returned liom Texas to New York, and who expected soon to join their families here, have telegraph ed that they sail to day for unknown service. EXTRA SESSION. Ihe New Yorkers are gaining ground in their deman d foi an extra session, as they say : nothing about the tariff, but urge warlike prep arations, which will require the authorization ■ of Congress. The President has asked the opinion of sev eral Senators here, in writing, on the necessity for calling an extra session. VIRGINIA APPEALS TO LINCOLN. Senator Chandler and Colonel Segar, mem : bers of the Virginia Convention, with John Mi j nor Bolts, are here from Richmond, and are

j having an inter view with Mr. Lincoln urging t 1 peace and depiecating activity in the War De i par'ment. ' | FORT PICKENS. General Scott is of the opinion that Fort Pickens cannot stand a continuous siege if the j Secessionists continue to throw up batteries, j encircling it and commanding all approaches, ■ai ha< been done at Charleston. It Pickens is -:to be maintained, a force must be hmded on - shore to silence the batteries. . SOUTHERN COMMISSIONERS INDIG NANT. The Southern Comn issioners now in Wash ington . are indignant. The first intimatiou which they rrc*ived of the warlike policy of r j the Administration, was given to-day. READY FOR WAR. ; j The Commissioners immediately telegraphed ? to Jefferson Davis "to prepare for war." The answer which they received was, "VVe are all . ready, let it come , APPOINTMENT OF AN ALLEGED SE CESSIONIST. ' : Great excitement exists in consequence of r ; the rumored appointment, by Secretary Bates, l ;of E C. Carrington to the office of Distuct . Attorney of the District of Columbia. He is a | nephew of ex-Secretary Floyd, and reputed to i be a Secessionist. It is rumored that the Ohio delegation pre fer the appointment of Mr. Gholson to the Su preme Bench. CABINET TROUBLES. Messengers are continually passing to ami ho between the offices ot the members of the Cabinet. There is trouble in the wind! i AFFAIRS begjn to have a warlike aspect. — The Administration has determined to re-in lorce Fort Pickens at all hazards, and troops being concentrated at New York preparato ry to a descent upon the South. The Soutb i ern Government is also preparing lor the con j fiicl, having collected an artny of at least four I housand men at Pensacola, which i; being daily ■ augmented, to repel any assault that may be : made, or, possibly, to attack the fort in case jan attempt is made to re-inforce it. Charles ton was thrown into a great state ot excite | ment on Thursday by the appearance of a schooner off"the harbor, and her attempt to pass the batteries. Sfie was fired into and turned about and disappeared. It is supposed that she contained reinforcements for Foil Sumpter. While the Admmislration hesitate concern ing the evacuation of Sumpter, the Charlesto ) nians are becoming impatient, and rumors were I current that an attack would be made upon it frcm the fortifications in case the troops were not withdrawn. The suspicion begins to pre vail that the Administration have delayed the evacuation for the purpose of inciting the South ern Government to make an attack upon the fort, and thus to throw upon it the responsibili ty of commencing a war which the Lincoln Administration has determined upon.— Patriot and Union, HEAL THE SICK. — Diseases of the Bowels and Stomach are always caused bv lirge de posits of hurtful matter, left by impure blood in those important organs, and the poisonous material in this vinated blood, acting on the system, makes it too weak to throw ofF this matter by the natural channels, or if any is carried off it is a very small 'portion. So arise diarrhoea and dysentery, colic, costiveiiess, bad breath, indigestion, nausea, loss ol appetite, belching of wind ol stomach, etc. To cure all these "the blood is the life," and must be perfectly pure and clean, then you cannot be sick. A short use of JUDSON'S MOUN TAIN HERB PILLS v/ill delight you. You will feel with surprise their mighty power, and be willing to say with the red men of the wes 1 , truly they are 'he "mighty healer."

But a few days ago In* greeted us With childish welcome; now lies his inani mate form in that narrow cell which all aie doomed to occupy. He was a bright, promis-1 ing boy the pride of a fond father—but, alas ! how soon are our brightest hopes crushed. — Youthful friend, rest in peace ! Thy mother hath called thee to her, "in childhood to give back the spirit to its maker." Mourn r.ot dear friends, that from jour side, This flower fair is torn ; For brighter colors now it wears Than here on earth are worn.
