TLe meeting on Monday evening was in# of; th. grandest cut-louring* of the good old D- i mocraev of Bedford County that we have ever Wi.nc-ssed. No eilort had be"n made to get up ' a dvESon-lrctiun, nothing hut the usual of the Chairman of the County Committee, and yet the people Cocked here in numbers that stiuck terror into the hearts of 'he enemies of the Constitution and the Old Union It was em phatically a meeting of thaPsoiix, of men who j know- their rights and whose presence d<.-muE;ra- ; ted their detenu:- atior. to maintain them. It was convincing evidence of the fact that the yeomanry of the country are sick and tired of the mal-idnnnistration cf oar present rulers srd in uvor f>. the time honored principles ©t the Democratic party whoso restoration t power alone can save the nattoa and bring back - that PEACE, HARMONY and Union of old. for which the whole Country is now sighing. The spoocL acf the evening rose far above the usual harangues of political gatherings.— They w ere the broad, logical and Constitutional arguments of Statesmen, whose love c-f country •s not limited by "ii?, and "anla"' nor circuni cribed by distinctions. They were full of cp.prals to the go. i ssr.se of t'.u petiole whose capability for self-governmeHt is never lost sight by the Dera>orat;c party, thouglt de nted by its opponents. The abuses of power lial tb.e violations of the sacred Charter of Lib erty by the present Administration were elo quently pointed cut with telling effect, which sank deep into the hearts of the immense crowd j present. They were the old Raman appeals of patriotism to an oppressed people, calling upon them to rise in the majesty of their might and the sublimity of their strength, and rescue their distracted country from iLe hands of its enemies. This meeting, which has sot the ball o* the great Presidential cor" stin morion. augurs well. Every where the people are *iiTe to the great strngg'e that is before then : and era the Ides of November they will have fully determined to root, with a Waterloo defeat, the fanaticism that now rules, end place in its stead the con servative aid conciliatory principles of Dcmoc f**y. Then shall the white-winged Angel of PEACE once mofe spread her fair pinions over the whole country, and the devest lag-demon .of WJR shali forever be a stranger. HON. A H.

INVASION. Our qui:.

Ivcontz s nom ination cnust have ccn r onnded him, for he was 1 i confoundedly unhappy in his style and mannner. He had better cot attempted to answer JucGe Kimmell, for it looked like a little dog with bristles and tail up, barking r.t an Elepbnnt. ! The Judge must have hurt—wounded some-1 : body—-for the gallant Colonel, (who has been in | the military service, as he told u?, for three years at 3 or 4,000 dollars a year,) in his attempts ' to answer him, failed to feme to time. Y7:,u.L, a warm friend of the soldier the Colonel would ■ | like to appear to he! It would suit hini and his friends exactly if he could get them to do 1 his dirty fighting for him, and then his voting ! ;too, and leave him in his ofS. e three or four years logger.

Kimmell, Esq., Hiram Findlpy, Esq., Gen. W. 11. Koonta and the clever "mine hoeC of the "KG House," J. W. Parker. Mr. Find- ! ley has r>?eeived the nomination of h'ts county for ti\e Legislature, and as we are "hitched - ' to ' Somerset on the Legislative question, we will • no doubt l called upon to vote for him.

Stol-KS.—Not lor? sine* Coring the late m-'J federate raid into UiU State—the ritiiens in [ some parts of Fulton County, and especially J t:. MtCotiHcUs Cove, became very much exci- j 1 tsL and thought it tl - best policy to remove j i their goods and slothing farther from the bor- j | der and -.out of reach of the iv.-ndcrs. One j ( man thinking more of Ms bed clothing than any i thing else, removed diem Into Brush Creek Town- j j ship, to his father'.- domicil for their safety—l . But owing to the success of the invasion aad . , the plundering of houses, stores, &c.. the goods ! became unsafe even there, and the plan of bu- I i Tying or concealing them in the wood* on j mountain wai hit upon as a capital idea. The J • ;oods were concealed in the woods until after i ■ i! | the excitement had ceased, ut which time they ■ ! were tc IA) brought home. Eut on the arrival j ! at the spot where the goods were left, they could j | not he found. Then the conclusion was, that i j a democrat had stolen them.

Words can- I r.ut *xp my disgust at Abo Lincoln's whole j • dniiuistrafio i, tl.e only •Ping I have to nd-l is that the sooner Ms place is filled by ., man/the Letter it wid be for the national gov- ' era men; generally ••* iGCiXI t JjO VI*U it is welt known I:dw comtilet.-'y air. Lia- j c v.m was governed in hie war measures by the : ultra Abolitionists up till a very shoct while r.gc. Tb cause of the final i iter-u: lion was tnis: As the radical drivers bec-am-* more furi ous '.be nearer they saw coming about a realiza tion of their schemes for t'.j dsainu'.Mn . sMvery, the Republican party leaders found it ; necessary—they expected to retain any p*w - } er at all—to put the brakes down hard uj on I i the president i.,1 mnchine. They did so, and J t'lereupon tha Abolition ehment fi,nr entirely ' : out of the vehicle and before they could be*' COJit;* cr Wheedled back .o?" their scats, they i i Wt nt .rft and nomir -sted JoLu C. Fremont. * llere was the dcu<M to pay by both tactions. ! i One couldn't ft on without the 'Fuere J wa? n- insapcrable difficulty in the way of a i perl.ct fu-ion, only . ..e needed blowing up to i the welding het of the other. The Repubii- j i Car. wing didn't care a fig for negro freedom: out everytb.ng for the spoils. The Abolition I i wing cared much for his colored brother in '"] mawkish scrt of way, sn 1 did not sc-.ru a full • purse. Holding such view 4, the question of M !as ion was only rr* oi time—u few spirits of indignant el imination and recrimination, and I I i;.o severed parts would come again together. ' i to be held tighter than ever by the cohesive i power of public plunder. Accordingly, after the runaway black ele ment had cooled its ardor somewhat, by stand ing oul ;n the cold, Mr. Lincoln issued his "To j, whom it may concern,'' and the work was done, j Scarcely had his ultimatum been issued, —that , the abandonment of slavery must he the main j , condition of peace and reunion—than the old j < Abolition drivers worr found preparing to mount, j j They saw at once the eternal fitness of things, ; ( and the invitation to mount to their accustom- \ ed perch was a godsend. And now u will not : , belong until the ola presidential rawbones, with j | the bit set hard between his tcctb, will coca- ( meace the old familiar jog trot undeT the vici- 11 ous lash of the Eeechers, the Garrisons, ar..l . the Greeieys; and. before he knows it, the < Fathrtnder will find hi 4 pathway strewn with j ( greenbacks, and he well on his way to eiaims : j of greater than Mariposa richness. But what is to become of the Republican co- i ] Ob, that is all arranged. Some of them have long ago feathered themselves and are setting their pinions oceanwnrd. Others Lrttve commencetl to sst up on their own hook; j BO that the remainder are content to either take a seat in tha wagon or the place in the harness, j only stipulating for a sufficiency of pay. That 1 1 secured, it is not so much matter to them wbeth-; er Abe or John, or some ons else runs the ma chine. The progress of the fusion is indicated by letters passing between Elizur Wright and S. G. Howe, prominent Abolitionists, aiul Jt>hu C. Fremont, The former conclude the-letter as fellows: t< "Ferodt tie, sir, to ask whc'Vr, !u enso Mr ' i Lirxieta will wnklnu', you ill do eo i j TOUT fehew citizeu 4 is ar attempt to jflace an [ administnition in power on a basl-Tbroad as the l patriotism of the country an! its neetls." General Fremont, under date cf Nahant, ■ Aug. 25, replica at considerable length. He 1 does not feol at libeny to withdraw bis name | without first consulting the patrioftic party who I nominated him, but auggcrts thtit a dire< t effort t be made to obtain an immediate noderstandiog : between the supporters of the Raitimcre and j Cleveland nominations, in order that the friend !of both.may coalesce and unite upon an early . day for holding such a convention. The following is extracted from Gen. Free ! mont's letter: j "Much has been said of late about pence, and ; you will, therefore, excuse me if I say here what j 1 understand by it. j "bor me peace signifies the integral establisb • ment of the I nion without slavery, because I slavery is the source of all our poliiical dis*en ' lions, and because the institution itself is con ! derailed by the enlightened and liberal spirit of the age. These are to me the essential condi '• lions of peace " t All that is now necessary is for Mr. Lincoln j tasignify publxely bis acquiescence in the prop j to withdraw in favor of a new conven tion, nud the thing is done. Both these polit i ical public failures can thus be taken off the I track, and the great 1 iad of "unfinished bui --! nees bequeathed to some luckless successor. J The "Great Incompetent" can then retire to ! obscurity, easing his soul with the specious re flection that his ret'.remsnt was alone dictated by "pure patriotism." Lst all the people pray for a new conveatioo, if that convention will bring out a new man: but if not for that pur pose. let them contemn it as securing only tho return of the old, vicious Abolition driver 4 who have already ruined and devastated the j country. — Pat. <£ Unwn. Terrible State of Affairs. The terrible outrages, corruption and mii management of the Lincoln Administrati ;n. have become so apparent that there Ls wide spread alarm throughout the land in regard to i the fate of ohr country, which w.a> so prosoer • ous and happy when they assumed the m inagc | ment of our afiairs. This feeling of alarm and j distress is not of a partisan character—it i not the effect of n "Ccfppcrhead caaspiracr.*' •it is fell the be.-t and bravest of all parties and sections, and has been expressed on many occasions by the wisest of our .Statesmen, sl --diers, editors and correspondents.

Does not the bervavau parent, widow, orphan and cripple feel that Senator Cowan has well expressed tMlr feelings ? and do not t the sorrow etricken throughout the land daiiv ; exclaim "these things are enough to make a sivntf man mad."

The N. Y. World comments upon the recent peace negotiations in Canada, a? follows: "The 1 orential fact which loom* up above the mirage cf this fiasco is, that the President of the Uni- . ted States hr.a defined his position on the most vital question of the time. He ha? declared, in the face of the world, 'to whom it may con cern,' that ho will listen to no proposition for tlse return of the Southern States to their aiie gianee which does not include the complete a bandonmcßt of slavery. Now, if Mr. Lincoln doe? not know, the people of the loyal States will teach him, thai ?bey will no: supply J aM treasure to prosecute a war in the interest ; of the black rao. He has no rigG to contin- I ue the war a dav for that purpose, nor will 'oe j people sustain him in so doing a day beyond the j time when they can constitutionally depose him from office. EASY AGAIN. "Tbank God, I am easy again," said Mr. Freeley. who had suffered for nine months with fiheotnatism.

Tba other dxy we heard a rich neighbor say j I.CH.AC rather hava railroad stock* limn the I.', tS. stock?, fcr they paid higher interest. Jc*t } then l'oor Richard carcc up, and said that he ' jast bought some of Uncle Sum's three years . notes, paying seven and three-tenths per cent, j interest. Mv rich friend exclaimed, You 1 I ; thought yon had no money to buy with. ••Ye?,'' said Richard, "I had a little laid up, for yon know it is well to have something laid np a- I gainst a wet day, and I have kept a iittle of my j , earnings by me." Now Poor Richard is known to all the country round lo IMJ U very prudent ■ and industrious, and withal, wise man: for, ! Richard never learned anything ha didn't know how to make use of, and his wisdom and pru p deuce had become a proverb. So, when he took ' out his savings and bought the nute?, more than one was surprised, and it wits no wonder rich Mr. Smith asked why. So Poor Richard, in ; a ve-y qui*! humble way—-for he never assumed _ | anything —replied, "I suppose, Mr. Smith, you , j know a great deal better than I do what to do - with money, and how to invest ; for I neter had much, and all I got I had to work Lard fur. ' ; But I have looked round a good deal upon my I ' neighbors, and sees what they did with their ' - j money and I will tell you some things I mw I and what I thought of it. One very rich man • was always deaiing in monev, and he made h s ! , great deal, but was never satisfied without high interest. So Ire lent most ~,f bis money to some - ; t ' people who he thought were vrv r:oh, at a • . i j very high rate ; and he often told bow much ' he got, till one day the people he lent to went to smash. He got back about ten cents on the dollar o: his money. I know another old gen , ; tleraan, who had so ne bank stock and he went , • to the bank and go*, ten per cent, dividend. The r Prctident and everybody euid it was the best' 1 in the couniry—paiu lea per cent Put what i did the* old man do but aeii his stock next dy! , , Why ? Why ? soi l everybody. Because, it pays ' toe tiiu. dividend. And in six months the bank went to smash. Now, that I know to be a fact Wed. Mr. Smith, you say railroad stocks are i . i i best, because they pay l.iji dividends? Can . you tell how long they will pay ihem 7 I like r.-iilroads. I helped to build one, and Igo in f< r useful things. But I tell you what I know ai at oi. One-third of the railroads don't pay any di*. i.lead, aru two thirds (and some of j them cracked up, too.) do uot pay as much a? j Government stocks. Now that brings ms to i the Government securities, and I will tell ycu why I prefer them. I take it you will admit, ! , Mr. ' ai.th, that in the long ran the investment which is Ltd should have these qualities: First, i it should be perfectly secure: secondly, that the in me should be uniform and permanent—• n. t up one year acd down the acxt; and thirdly, that it should be marketable, so when your wet : day comes, and yea want your money, you can ! ■ get it back And I think the?j notes or bonds ' hare got these qua..lies more than any other ' kind of personal property you can name. 1 1 "r:rst. then, I have been looking into that great b<x>k von call the Census Statistics.

Then the debt will bo paid, anyhovr, i no matter how long the war is. Besides, did j you ever hear of a Government that broke be- j fore the usaple did ? Look into your big histor- j ie, Mr. Smith, un-J you will find the people ' break before the Governments.
