_ Pa.— FtlMvl AFRIL 20, !SCI. B. F. Meyers, Editor & Proprietor. CcxLL AND SETTLE. We aie compelled to call upon all persons indebted to us, to make payment as soon as they conveniently can. Our necessities are urgent and me must have money. We shall confidently expec* all our friends who may be in attendance at the coming Court, to pay up their arrearages. We hope this appeal will not be in vain. Our Position. Our readers will, doubties?, be thoroughly con* inced by this time that the predictions made in these columns from licre to time, have been fully verified. We are now in the midst, in the verv white heat, of civil war. The revo lution in the Southern States is spreading so rantdiy that it now threatens to overwhelm every one of (he fifteen slave-holding states. — The conthc' is now approaching our own bor ders, and it becomes us as good citizens to unite as one man, for the defence ol our State and our homes, against invasion lrom the border ing stales. Deeply impressed with the impor tance of unanimity when such danger threat ens us, we will suspend, for a time, the discus sion of the causes which led to the present un happy condition of our country and devote our jpace and attention to the preparation ofoor people for the defence of their country and their homes. Under the time-honored banner of the Unioo, we will stand or fall, tor the lib erty, equality and protection of which it is the symbol. Stand by the Union ! Democrats ! We have fought, in other times, to maintain the Union against the attacks of its sectional enemies. Now that we are in the midst of this bloody civil feud, let us stand by the old banner under which we have marched to many a political battle. Let us not be heard crying, "The North against the South," or "The South against the North," but "THE GOVERNMENT AND THE UNION'" It becomes our duty, our sacred, solemn duty, as citizens of a Slate loyal to the Government, to stand up for the maintenance of the authority ol that Government. Let us b® true to the covenant formed by our fathers, and discarding vwvlontttoiii i.g.it A. the vindication of the Constitution and the res toration of the Union. i'The Union, Ob! the Union, So glorious and so pure ! We'll shoulder stand to shoulder, To keep our Union sure." Senator Douglas. This distinguished Democrat takes the posi t.on that whiLt he was entirely and emphati cally opposed to the policy of the Administra tion, which has involved us in our present dif ficulties, and ..Ist he will be unalterably bos !i'e to the political doctrines of that Adminis uation, k? believes it his duly to lend all the aid ii** tan give to the President in the exercise of those powers which the Constitution has ves ted ia his otiice. This is the position (or Dem ocrats to take. Stand by the Government, but preserve your organization, 3 cur principles, your opinions, and never, never, yield one jot of that creed which you believe to be the hope and the salvation of your country. Our Flag. The glorious banner of stars, floats majestical ly above our ctfice, bearing upon its azure field the whole constellation of the Union. That flag.to us i 3 full of meaning. It is the emblem of liberty. It is the ensign of the Constitution. It means not only stars and stripes, but it means freedom of opiaion, freedom of slfrech, the e quality ct American citizerls, the protection of all men equally and alike. It does not mean lynch law, it dots not mean mobs, but equity, justice, order, the laws of the land. Let its meaning not be perverted. Let it be main tained in all the unsullied splendor of its primal purity. A word to our Southern Neighbors. The latest reports by Telegraph bring us the intelligence of skirmishes and battles in Mary land, and ol an intended descent upon the bor der villages in Pennsylvania. We would say 10 our neighbors, bethink yourselves of the past. The people of the border counties in Pennsyl vania, have always fought valiantly for your rights and yielded not till the last foothold slip ped from under them. Repay not their kind otiices with such ingratitude. Should you at tempt to do so, former frieud and former foe will be compelled to unite for the purpose of repelling your assaults. Let us have no gueril la warfare like this. Having maintained our freedom of] speech,and believing the threatened reign of terror a faiiuie, we shall cease, with this issue, to speak of the causes which produced the re sults that are now upon us, until public affairs assume a more settled condition. We make this statement, so that our position may not be misunderstood. Personal The tongue ol malice has been wagging bu sily irj this community during the last week.— Hoary-headed pusallanimily, joined hands with the lily-livered cowardice ot oveTgrown brag garts, and the neighborhood, nay the whole county, war flooded with malevolent, but ridic ulous and harmless falsehoods concerning out po sition in regard to the war. It was reported thai we were a Secessionist (!!!); that our of fice had been surrounded by a mob ; that we were to bp hung ; that we were compelled to hoist the Stars and Stripes, &c., .Sic. Now, it is hardly necessary to give a formal contradic tion to this puerile gasconade of a malicious, frightened and excited opposition. But for the benefit of those weak enough to be misled by such silly fabrications, we would sav, 1. It is a he that we are a Secessionist, and the man who dares to say it, is a coward and poltroon. 2. Our office was not mobbed, nor was theie any attempt to do so, and it is just as well for ail parties concerned, that there was not. 3. We have not been hanged as yet; if we have, we must have been under the influence of chloroform, whilst that pleasant operation was going on. 4. We hoisted the flag of our country ot our own free will, and its folds were unfurled above our office by the hands of our friends, unpollu ted by the touch of those who are our enemies for opinion's sake. Local and Miscellaneous. ....The greatest excitement has prevail ed in our town during the last ten days, owing to the breaking out of the civil war between the Government and the people of the South. Business has been IO a measure abandoned.— The implements ot peace have been thrown a side lor the weapons ol war. The measured tread of the soldier is h°ard in the street, and all is bustle and preparation for the bloody strife. The heart of the true patriot sickens within him, as he contemplates this melancholy con dition of things. To the thoughtless and gid dy, it may be ail a frolic ; to us it is the harbin ger of a most dreadful and devastating storm.— But it behooves us to prepare for the safety of our own country, as well as for the defence of our flag, and, therefore, we must needs put on the soldier and learn the "rude and ruthless arts of war." ... .A number of the young men of this place and the surrounding country, have form ed themselves into a company and tendered their services to the Governor. We believe their offer has been accepted. John H. Filler, of this place, was elected Captain, and Edwin S. Mops, of Bloody Run, First Lieutenant. i ... .We have had several war speeches in j our town recently. Hon. John Cessna has la ken the most prominent part ir. urging the peo ple to arms. Wm. Harllpy, Esq., made a ; speech on Saturday night last, in which he said that he was for the Union, the Constitu tion aud the enforcement of the laws ; but that he would bear the olive branch in the left.— j Mr. Hartley spoke the sentiments of the great mass of the people in Bedford county. Maj. Tate also addressed the soldiers on Monday e rening, but we did not have the pleasure ol hearing his address j ....Wouldn't work— the atones sent out 1 by certain malicious cowards to the effect that our office had been mobbed and that a flag' bad been placed upon it against our will. The peo ple knew too weil that the Stars and Stripes are our own Hag, the (lag of the Democracy, to require any force-work to hive it hoisted on cur establishment. Those who knew us best, j were well aware, too, that we would never be j forced to do anything against our will. Gen tlemen malignants, that flag is the ensign of Democracy, and you can't steal it from us, no j how ! . .. .The Post office has been removed to the .hatter shop of the Messrs. Kis**r, on Juliana street. The new P. M., William Riser, Esq., j though an uncompromising "Republican," is a ; good citizen and we doubt not, will make a ! good officer. ... .We have received an anonymous com munication, informing us that our visit to "Se cessionist II " on Monday night last, was strictly watched I Well Weill Has it come to this! Must a frpeman ask the privilege of the town to visit a neighbor in distress ?—Mr. B is not a secessionist, as he has fre quently declared to us, but has brothers and sis ters living in Maryland, in regard to whose welfare he is deeply concerned. Happening to know this, we deemed it our duty as a friend, to advise brm of occurrences in Maryland as re ported by telegraph, and having heard that he was fearful of certain threats made against him, to assure him that he was in no danger. We spent just ten minutes in Mr. B's house. If any old woman in breeches disapproves of our conduct, let her (him) statelier objections to us, and the next time call upon any of our neighbors, we will ask her (his) permis sion to do so. . .. .Capt. Phil. Morgart has organized a fine company whose services will be tendered to the Governor. The Captain is a man of the true grit and as "whole-souled a fellow" as can be found anywhere. . ... We call the attention of our readers to the advertisement of Mr. J. B. Farquhar, late of Bloody Run, who has opened a Grocerv and Confectionary Store in the old Brown stand late ly occupied by Col. John A Dip. Mr. Far auhar will be able to accommodate the public with anything desired in his line of business. . . . .Mr. Wm. Cook, late of Bloody Run, has established himself in the old CUar blacksmith ' shop, in the Western pait of the town. Cook is said to be a good mechanic. Try him. . .. .Several robberies have been committed in our town, within the last few nights. Sev eral persons have had watches and other arti cles taken from them. A night police has been organized by the borough fathers. [TT The latest news trom the South, indi cates that the Federal Capital is in no dang-r ot capture. The road to Washington from the North is open. It is supposed that 20,000 troops will have concentrated a', that point by this time. M, Shoemaker &Co , have just re ceived a large assortment of splendid new spring and summer Goods, which they will dispose of at panic prices. Give them a call. LET THE UNPREJUDICED READ ! How they talked four weeks ago ! The Bedford Inquirer , of April sth, copied the annexed article into its second editoria 1 col umn, without comment, or explanation, thus adopting it as its own sentiments. Four weeks ago this precious stickler for the Union, in structed his readers that the return of the sece ded states was not de-sireJ, and that, "To such a Union the Providence of God has said, 'Two i nabons are m thy womb, and two manner of j people shall be separated from thy bowpls !" Then, the cry was, "Let the seceding States go. "And i( the dwellers on the Atlantic slope ol North Carolina and Virginia choose that destiny, let them too go." But now how changed ! [Fiom the Bedford Inquirer, April sth, 1861.] JS THE VOLUNTARY RETURN OF THE SECEDING STATES DESIRABLE 1 This question, we think, has not been suffi ciently considered. It ought to be considered now, r.ot only by the Government, but much more by the people. Unthinkingly, it seems .o be assumed that, if those Slates will return voluntarily, in mere disconte.it with the grow ing inconveniencies and expenses of secession, all wiil be well. We are of a different opin ion ; and we are confident that thinking minds throughout the country are coming to the con clusion that the re-annexation ol those States, even by their spon'aneous return, is not to be desired at present. Such a re-annexation is not to be desired,' unless the principle is first established, by pre cedents never to be forgotten, that secession is 1 (reason, and that treason is a crime lo be pun ished. The leaders ol the present secession have levied war against the United Stales After employing themselves in this way for ; six months, shall they be permitted to return, and to remain within the reach of Federal mar shals and the jurisdiction of Federal courts, without being hanged for their treason ? If we live to see this, why may we not live to see Toombs and Wigfall again adorning the Sen ate, and Jefferson Davis the successor of Wash ington ? Why shall not Twiggs be restored to his rank in the army ? Why shall we not as sume all the debts of the Montgomery Govern- | ment, and pension ali those who have served more than ninety days in the revolutionary ar my ? A ' reconstruction," even by the volun tary return of the secessionists, presumes that there will be, on the part ol the United States., < <..11 KUIMAIJ URMR IN-AS'IN. XJUCU u/i amnes ty would b*a virtual destruction of tiie Gov ernment. Therefore, we say that the return o< the seceded states, even voluntarily, is not to be desired, unless some of the leaders in the treason are to receive the due punishment of their crime with the full consent ot the South and North. Nor is it to be desired, unless the cause which 1 has produced this secession is removed. Less i than ten j ears ago the Union of these Slates seemed, to us, indissoluble. The balancp be- tween internal self government in the several | StaJ"3j and a more than imperial strength and ! benefiic?nce in the Union, is so marvelcusljr ad 'justed bv the' arrangements of the Constitu tion, —the benefits which the Union confers on ! every state are so imfftant, so numerous, and 1 so clieaply purchased,—thif if seemed impossi i ble for any English-speaking republic to exist i in proximity to this Union without lading into j it, as Texas did, by a gravitation too powerful to be resisted : and especially impossible lor any state, alter the experience of those benefits, to tear itself away from its place and orbit in the system, and make itself a "wandering star for which is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever." We knew indeed the chronic insanity of South Carolina, but we did not admit th° possibility of the same insanity in other states Our mistake was that we did not adequately consider the fact (obvious even (hen) that in the ; cotton states the structure, genius, and all the j tendencies of society, are controlled by the bar i barous and barbarizing institution of negro j slavery. It is the distinction of those states that there the interest of slavery predominates over every other interest in society, and the influence of slavery over every other influence. There is no impossibility of permanent union between states in which slavery exists and states in which all men are free, if slavery rnav |be regarded as abnormal, an accidental and | temporary inconsistency, an evil which must : be endured till the progress of civilization shall | remove it. But when, in any portion of such I a union, the institution of slavery has become I paramount—the idea of slavery, as intrinsical- I ly right and good, controlling all legislation and public policy, all social and public morality, all i religious doctrine, and mingling with all 'he ! impulses and aspirations of patriotism—then it j is no longer pos-ible for those states to be coan ; preliended with free states in one nationality. To such a Union the providence of God has said "Two nations are in thy womb, and two manner of people shall be separated from thy bowels." We must accept the fact. It is no j accident that has caused I his secession. The j predominance of slavery in the cotton states ! has produced there, a distinct nationality, and unless Ihnt cause of the present secession can be removed, the return cf the seceded states to their place in the Union is not to he desired. Let the Seceding States go ! How evident , is it that God, for great and beneficent purposes ! of his own, has permitted this insanity to come ; upon them. Let them go to work out their i own destiny by ihemseives ! And if Iktdvoel- Urs on the Atlantic slope of jYcr'h Carolina and Virginia choose hurt destiny, let them too got The policy of coercion is impolicy. The 1 boundary between the two inevitable national ities will be most wisely determined by the elective affinities of the population. Where-' ever that boundary may be established, it will . be moveable, southward, it Eastern Virginia, or | Virginia entire, chooses to go with secession.— Virginia will return whenever the interests of freedom there shall predominate over the slave ; breeding interest. Till then let her go, it she ' will .—lndependent. lirgiuia Armed Agaiusi Hie Union- JBY THE GOVERNOR OF VIRGINIA—A PROCLA MATION. J RICHMOND, Va., April 18.— WHEREAS, sev i en ol the States formerly composing a part of the United Slates, have, by authority of their people, solemnly resumed the powers granted j by them to the United Stales, and have framed l a Constitution and organized a Government tor themselves, to which the ptople of those States | are yielding willing obedience, and have so no i tified the President of the United States by all i formalities incident to such action, and thereby becom ß to the United States a separate, inde pendent, and foreign power, And, whereas, the Constitution of the Uui j ted States has invested Congress with the sole ; power "to declare war," and until such decla j ration is made, the President has no authority | to call for an extraordinary force to wage offen | sive war against any foreign power ; and where as, on the 15th inst., the President of the Uni j ted States, in plain violation of the Constitu tion, issued a proclamation calling for a force
of S l . venly five thousand men, to the laws of the United States to be duly executed over j a people who are no longer a part of the Union, I and in said proclamation threatens to exert this j unusual force to compel obedience to his man ; dates ; and whereas, the General Assembly of ! V irginia, by a majority approaching to entire | unanimity, declared at its last session that the | State oi V irginia would consider such an exer j tion of force as a virtual declaration of war, to i be resisted by all the power at the command ol I V irginia , and, subsequently, the Convention i now :n session, representing the sovereignty of this State, has re-affirmed in substance the same ; policy, with almost equal unanimity ; and, : whereas, the State of Virginia deeply' sympa- J thizes with the Southern S'ates in the wrongs they liave suffered, and in the position thev have assumed ; and having made earnest "efTirls peaceably to compose the differences which have severed the Uoiun, and havinc- failed in that atlempt, through this unwarranted acton iti e part of the President; and it is believed that the influences which operated to produce this proclamation against the Seceded States, w ill be brought lo bear upon this Common wealth, if she should exercise her undoubted right (o resume the powers granted by her peo pie, and it is due to the honor of Virginia that | an improper exercise of force against %er peo ple should be repelled : Therefore, I, John Letcher, Governor of the Commonwealth of V irginia, have thought proper to order all arm ed volunteer regiments or companies within this State forthwith to hold themselves in read iness for immediate orders, and upon the recep tion of this proclamation to report to the Ad jutant-General of the State their organization I and numbers, and prepare themselves for effi cient service.

A letter from a prominent citizen of Prince Edward county, Va., lo a gentleman in Rich mond, says a large number ol slav. holders in that section are preparing to emigrate with their negroes to Texas and other States farther south, and declares that "if this state of things con tinues, the slaveholding portion of Virgina will soon be impoverished."
