LINDEN LAURIE. THE SPY SYSTEM. I Every despotism is compelled to maintain a : system of espionage in order to secure its usurp- | ations. Our own is no exception. Its spies ■ I and emissaries, who are paid outof the fund set i i aside by Congress for "secret service," are in I every city, town and community. Some are i resident, and some are of the nomadic tvibe, but i all are of the most unenviable character—sneak ing mischief-work rs who, before the war, could be found at the bottom of every domestic diffi culty, every community slander, and every un j founded lie and disturbance. Being paid for their dirty work, they rind it necessary to make ; some show of earning their greenbacks ; but, as 1 itTequires less work to invent than to peek about eves, windows and keyholes, they therefore— invent, as a general thing. The one of this class who has succeeded in making up the biggest yarn to tickle his employ ers and rake in his monthly dues, is Sanderson, ; who invented and worked up a "thousand pa ges of legal cap" about the "Northwestern Con * spiracy." There are numerous specimens of , the genus whose speciality is the concocting of * "loyal"' newspaper correspondence. At tLj y a _ I "<AIS sprL---- lUK j watering prices will bq j , One or more of them. A few day? ago one of them regaled the readers of the "loyal" I'hila- j del phi a BtUktin with a big story to theeffect that ! Cape May was made up of secessionists—that the stars and bars were publicly displayed there— that loyal people had to pack their trunks and leave in a body, &e. After the correspondent | had drawn his pay and the "loyal" country press had caught til-: bait, the IJtdleltn was constrained to deny the whole story. Another of this tribe tickles the "loyalty" of . the Washington Chronicle's readers with a story about secessionist!! and treason at the Bedford Springs, where "chief among these vicious se cession sympathisers was James Buchanan and j his niece, Miss Lane." Another of this class | ol pimps, who have no respect fur the sanctity i ot private life, for honorable gray hairs, or for I female worth or innocence, makes an attack. : front the same place, in the N. Y. Herald, up on General BueU, who has had the temerity to receive the courtesies of personal friends. And so, throughout the country, are scatter * ed a multitude of these 3pies, (who are paid di | rectly out of the Government treasury, as a ! general thing.) to render odious to the people such eminent men as are opposed to the rotten despotism of shoddy. For the most part the 1 persons composing this class of villains are vig | orous and able-bodied, but always exempt from military set vice. They always carry some pass, certificate or "open sesame;" and Government officials feel honored in their acquaintance. This is where a large portion of the people's money goes. 1 heir hard earned taxes must go to pay the wages of such scamps as are appoint ed to dodge their footst'eps, listen at their key- I holes and peek and pry generally into their most | private affairs. How do our people fancy the I work of this triHo of Uriah Ueeps, who receive the funds of t?ie "Secret Service?"— Patriot ty Union. A rIENDISH OUTRAGE. A correspondent of the Atlanta A/yea! nar rates tbo annexed fiendish outrage: A body of Yankees went to the residence of Mr. Wm. Iveson, who lives about sixteeii miles north of Decatur, Georgia, on last Saturday, and after destroying his etfeets to their heart's content, laid hands on his daughter, about six teen years of age, and by force, one sifter anoth er, satisfying their hellish lust. Her father at tempted to take her from them. They then set on him with clubs, which soon disabled the old tn;;n, and, in all probability will die of his inju ries. This beantiful and virtuous young lady expired before they left. The Yankees came back next morning and dug a hole near the well, in the yard, and put the corpse in and cov ered it. Such accounts as these wo are aware arc not generally fit to be inserted in newspaper col umns. We publish this simply because we hope it will have the effect of rousing our people to more energetic action in their endeavors to drive back a foe who is seeking to devastate our fair State and to lay waste and render desolate hap py homes and firesides. Freedom of Thought and Opinion. BEDFORD, PA., FRIDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 2, 1864. Pterin Ihe Ncif York Herald. } THE YANKEE TYRANNY. The Central and Western States Mere "Hewers of Wood" to New England. Previous to the present civil wur the agitators of New England were eternally denouncing the alleged ascendancy of the seven Cotton States in shaping and controlling the policy of our na tional government. "Everything is shaped* to benefit the cotton States," was the ery of the New England fanatic 3. "The whole govern ment is in the hands of the South, and every measure of legislation is held subordinate to ! Southern interests." That there was a small basis of fact for these assertions is not to be de nied, and that basis had this extent, no more: Ihe seven cotton States demanded that the con stitution of the United States should be upheld, and that no legislation hostile to their projag ty interests in the institution of slavery shot/Id he undertaken by Congress. They ulso further de manded, in one single instance,—the Fugitive Slave law—that Congress should make some legislative provision to enforce one of the rigFts guaranteed to them by the constitution against the treasonable and unconstitutional opposition thereto of these sauio New England fanatics. This was about all the "peculiar legislation" the Soutii demanded, and, in return for receiv ing it, they—a wholly agricultural and produc ing people —acquiesced without murmur in all the legislation demanded by the complex com mercial, agricultural and manufacturing inter ests of the remainder of the Union. Well, the Union was at last broken up, the South being no longer able to bear peacefully the constant irritation and dangers resulting from the aggressive character of New England's anti-slavery fanaticism. The fourteen Senators from the seven cotton Slates not only lost their ascendancy in our national affairs, but stepped I out of the Union altogether. And now what do we find to be the result? Just this:-—That the twelve Senators of the six New England States have adopted the rote which they so ye- i hemently denounced in what they were pleased ; to call the "Black Gulf Squadron," and that our whole national policy is to-day subservient to the interests and dictates, the bigotries and narrow, puritanical prejudices, of the twelve j Senators who, forming "the "Black Republican 1 Squadron," are Bent from the New England States to Washington. Our present actual mas- ' ters are more sordid, grasping and cruel tiiin were the alleged Southern managers of the past. I They legislate with a view exclusively to New j 1 England interests, and their object would <see(p to bo to throw all the burdens of taxaiiuij and j revenue upon the other, portions of the loyal i States, while compelling us all, by high profec- j live and importalT >n duties, to pur-; chase New England manufactures, however in ferior to those we could obtain much cheaper ■ „i i .. -• ' . U.......u i ai just sue., as may su.. t ,... ft?—-we will not say Conscience*. for ihey ap- : pear to have none—of New England's mayu-' facturing aristocracy. The main burdens of our internal revenue were thrown by the legislation of la;t winter upon two articles —whiskey and tobacco —in which the New England States have but the slightest interest, while our custom house du ties were advanced to figures making regular importation all buL certainly unprofitable, and of necessity driving the trade, heretofore cen tred in New York, to be mainly transacted there after by active parties of smugglers along the Canadian border. Su much is this the ease that the Secretary of the Treasury is now devising means to check this very smuggling, which has reached, even while yet in its infancy, enormous proportions—Secretary Fessenden apparently forgetting Sir Robert I'eeie's maxim, as the re sult of English experience, that "it is utterly impossible to check any smuggling which, if successful, will pay a profit of over 30 per cent." In our case, however, the profits of running cer tain articles into the United States from Cana da will be many hundred percent.; nor can this be stopped in any manner, unless we build along the Canadian frontier such a wall as divides the Chinese from the old Tartar empire. Even this would hardly suffice; tor, with such a profit as New England greed has left open to the smug glers, it would be a remunerative speculation to start a hund.ed large balloons in this species of traffic. In the last session of the Senate, let it not be forgotten, the chairman of every importantcom- j mittee was a New Englander, the presiding of ficer was a New Englander, and all the legisla tion ground out was either to benefit New Kit gland interests, or to supply food to New En gland bigotries and hates. The trade of New York city was to be destroyed by imposing du ties which would force foreign merchandise up to Canada, and thence, by smuggling, into the U. States; while New England was to avoid the heavy burden of taxation, in great measure, by placing the heaviest excise duties on our in ternal revenue upon two articles in which her interests are insignificant. ller six States, with an aggregate population of three millions one hundred and thirty-five thousand three hundred and one, according to the census of iB6O, are represented by 12 Senators, holding the chair manships of all the most important committees of the Senate of the Union; while New York, with a population of three millions eight hun dred and eighty-seven thousand five hundred and forty-two, according to the same census, has but two members in the Senate; and these two, upon every occasion in which they attempt ed to defend the interests of New York and the Central States, were roughly overridden and vo ted down by the "lilack Republican Squadron" from Now England. Thus it is that history repeats itself. The Puritans fled to this country under pretence of a desire to secure religious liberty; but no soon ! er had they obtained it for themselves than they commenced burning Quakers, non-conformists, witches and all others whose practices they could not understand. They protested against the as- j cendancy of the "Black Gulf Squadron" in our I national affairs, even provoking a civil war ra- I ther than submit to it; but no sooner are they . given a chance of power than we find the "Black | Republican Squadron" in full sweep, with the black fiag hoisted against the rights, interests | and opinions of every section of the Union.— Our whole government to-day is one of Yankee ideas and the most miserable sort of Yankee philanthropic notions. The sceptre thrown down by the extreme South as it rushed out of the Union is now wielded mora fiercely and remorse lessly by the extreme Northeastern section of : our people. hen will the day come, it may be asked, in which the great Central or Western Statc3 will assert their natural supremacy, and crush out the extremists, or corner-men of the conti nent, as we may call them—ona faction of these residing in the southeast, and the other in the northeast corner of the Atlantic seaboard?— * When will tlie day come that we of the Centre and\\ est shall bo "Americans," and not "Yan kees," in the eyes of Europe, and indeed of all j the world? We are called "Yankees'' now even by our Southern foes, who know better, geographically—merely because it is seen that we are the helots of a Yankee oligarchy, pa paliently submitting to Yankee rule, and fight j lng out a war which had its origin in Yankee intolerance and bigotry. With seven hundred and lit ty thousand more population than the six Now England States put together, we have but two representatives in the Senate of the United States, while New England has twelve; and, not content with foisting on us the greater part of the burdens of the war, while at the same time ruining the trade and marine of our great est city—the greatest city on the continent— i New England has now capped the climax of her oppressions by so arranging it that, while but twelve and a half per cent, of her popula , tion has been enrolled for the coming draft, no less than twenty-six per cent, of our population • in the first ten districts of New York have been \ ! enrolled for the same purpose! Does this really : ! mean that the lives of two and a fraction cili- , zens of New York are but wortli the life of one i Massachusetts man? Or will the Bay State as- J * sert that one of her lanky sons is able to whip | two and something over of our New York ath- j j letes- The question is a pertinent one; fdr, as ! tilings are now progressing, no one can tell how Soon these questions may be brought to a very . practical test. The only remedy for these evils i i* for the Central and Northern States to make ua strong alliance, offensive and defensive, during "the progress of the Chicago Convention, and to ; place upon a platform, opposed alike to South • eastern and Northeastern extremists, some con- 1 i: native soldier or statesman who shall be the vigorous exponent rtf a national, anti-corner ' ptffn'y- "To Whom it may Concern."

' ABRAHAM LTNCOLN. ABRAHAM LINCOLN. WHO IS THE GOVERNMENT. Are we not tired of bearing so much about "■supporting the government," —"resisting the government" —"destroying the government" and a great deal of like nonsense ? Who resists the government t Before we can answer that ques tion, it is important to settle the matter us to | yvho is the government. Mr. Lincoln is not the government. Congress is not the government. The Supreme Court is not the government. All these united do not form the governing pow er of the country. Under our system TIIE PEOI'LE is the government; and the President, the Congress, and the Supreme Court, are only the official agents to execute the will of the ( sovereign people, or to administer their laws un-{! i der carefully guarded Constitutional limitations, j All of Mr. Lincoln's usurpations are assaults upon the government. He is the guilty party, ; who is opposing and seeking to destroy the gov l em men t! In England, the governing power, i instead of being tbe people is the aidstocracy. Suppress the aristocracy in England, and there is no political organization left—the govern ment of that country would be overthrown, just i as Lincoln is seeking to overthrow the govern i ment of this country by suppressing the rights and powers of the people. Napoleon s*id: Ii religion had been taken away from Home, noth ing would have been left. — The reason was that the government of Rome was the priesthood. If we take sovereignty from the people of Amer ! ica, there is nothing left of our government. It would be as effectually destroyed as the gov ernment of Great Britain would be by the over ; throw of the aristocracy, or as the government of Austria would l>e by the ignoring of the crown. So if it be true, as these noisy imbe -1 ciles declare, that those who are opposing, and trying to destroy our government, ought to be hanged, Mr. Lincoln's neck is the one to which thoy must fit their halter Ho is the traitor who is opposing the government established by th Q people of the United States. — Old Guard. Among the wounded prisoners taken at I Atlanta were two women. The sex of one ■ was discovered during the amputation of her i leg. The other was mortally wounded through ' the breast by a grape shot.

This war is assuming vast proportions, Ritd shocking atrocities, demanding immediate pun ishment, have been committed. It is said up on good authority, that 6,000 warriors oi the Sioux ti : he are on the war pith, animated by a fixed pnrpo.-e to si.ty all the whites they may meet, and to destroy all the property within their reach. Other tribes aro engaged in the same work and with the .same purpose in view. As yet, the preparations to meet and punish them have been mud inadequate, and the only organized military expedition —that of Gen. Sully—it is feared never will come up to time. It has been delayed so much in its movements as to give the sanguinary savages full time to rob, kill and destroy before he can possibly o vertake them. This Indian war is design". Ito add many millions ot dollars to tae debt of the country, to say nothing of the many valu able lives sacrificed anil the interruption of all commercial relations with our W esioni lerri tories. ' ASCITOK to HE:; Xlxjuatx. —The French papers contain the following odd story ; Letters from Abyssinia state that Theodore, Emperor of that country, has just crowned his imperial eccentricities by au act which exceeds them all in extravagance. Having learned of the wid owhood of Queen Victoria he has had a letter written to her, offering her his hand. Mr. Cameron, the English Consul, was charged to forward this missive to his sovereign. The re ply to so unforeseen an offer not being immedi ately forthcoming, the Emperor Theodore gt angry, and had Mr. Cameron put in chains un til lii's Majesty should have obtained satisfaction for such a want of attention towards him. On hearing of the imprisonment ?f Mr. Cameron, her Britauic Majesty is said to have decided on replying by a polite refusal, the sending of which by post was more economic than a special mis sion to Abyssinia.
