By order of the Democratic State Committee. WM. A. WALLACE, •hair man. B. L. FORSTER, Sec'y. A BLACK REBELLIftX IX SOI'TII CAROLINA. Some of the negroes of South Caroli na have risen in rebellion against the U. S. authorities. A fight has occurr ed between the colored insurgents and a force under an agent of the Freed men:s Bureau, Lieut. Lemon, in which the latter was badly wounded. The following despatches to the Associated Press, show the state of affairs existing at last accounts. SAVANNAH, Ga., Jan. 30. —Colonel Sibley returned in the boat, and reports that all is quiet now, but he deemed it necessary to leave a heavy guard to maintain order. The whole of the trou ble is laid to Aaron Bradley, a colored lawyer from Boston, who makes a boast that he would like to see blood shed, and promises the negroes that if they will resist the United States forces at the point of the bayonet the land will be theirs. The burning of the steamer General Sheply is attributed to thesamesouree. There is a general spiritof insubordina tion among the negroes in thisdistrict. CHARLESTON, S. C, Jan. 31.—A1l is quiet in Carolina to-day. The negro Bradley was arrested this morning by the United States authorities. Lieut. Lemon is doing well. "The whole of the trouble is laid to Aaron Bradley a colored lawyer." What a sermon is this to the men who are continually engaged in hampering the negroes with ideas of white and black equality ! What a lesson to the people as to the necessity of restoring the Southern States to their normal re lations to the Government! What a rebuke to the mischievous Radical Congress which keeps the subject of ne gro rights in unending agitation! What a commentary upon the New England idea of sending "colored lawyers" from Boston to the South to teach the ne groes their duty! Do the quiet, law abiding people of Pennsylvania appre ciate, in all its enormity, the policy which makes "Aaron Bradley a color ed lawyer from Boston, who boasts that he would like to see blood-shed," a missionary among the blacks of the South, to stir them up to insurrection and murder? If not, it is high time that they begin to think upon the sub ject. Here we have aU. S. officer shot in the discharge of his duty, a vessel burned, and the negroes called upon to resist the U. S. forces at the point of the bayonet, and all this in the name of ne gro rights. A few more speeches from our members of Congress, a few more "colored lawyers" sent on missions to their brethren, and we shall have a black rebellion in comparison with which the horrors of San Domingo will pale into insignificance. WE again call attention to the fact that the Democratic County Commit tee is requested to met t at the Court House, at 7 o'clock, on Tuesday eve ning next, and urge upon its members the importance of a full tun>out. WHO PAYS ? A special detective agent of the Treas ury department was recently sent to the Canada border, among the Custom Houses. He succeeded in making ar rangements with twenty two revenue officers fall "loyal men," too, no doubt} to engage in smuggling goods from Canada into the United .States. The Yankees have now a good enough Rec iprocity Treaty with Canada, in the present infamous tariff. They smug gle all the foreign goods they need from Canada, and compel the rest of the country to pay exorbitant prices for their own manufactures. The other day every New England member of Congress voted to reduce the duty on Nova Scotia coal, an article which they consume very heavily, and find at the same time, too "unhandy" to smuggle through by the underground railroad. THE MARKETS. —PhiI'a, Jan. 30. Whisky. Nothing doing except in the contraband article, which sells free ly at $1.50 and $1.75 per gal.— BhiCa Press. Such is the unvarying refrain in the market reports of the daily press. Whisky is selling in the open market, at one-third less than thelnternal Rev enue tax, and yet not the slightest ef fort is being made to modify this un just and ineffective law, which offers constant temptations to violate it, and bears oppressively upon no one but the honest dealer. The retailer of liquor has begun to discover that he can buy whisky in Philadelphia at half the price he pays for that made at home— if there should be a little strychnine in it. This is the only way to account for the number of agents for liquor houses in Philadelphia, who are traveling the country in all directions. Unless Con gress alters the law, the domestic man ufacturer willengagein the contraband business too, and the fight tlill then become a free one between the home distiller, the Eastern smuggler and the revenue officers, the latter of whom can soon be "counted out." THE " Cambria Freeman'''' is the title of a new paper published at Ebensburg, by R. L. Johnston and H. A. McPike. It is edited with much sprightliness and is in every respect an improvement upon the old Sentinel now defunct. With the inimitalfle "Bob" as its ed itor, the Freeman is bound to succeed. We do not see, however, how he he can devote much attention to the editorial business, as he is always on the stump. THE Indiana Democrat , edited and published by our old friend James B. Sansom, Esq., comes to us enlarged and printed on new type. The Demo crat i doing good service in the benight ed regions of Indiana county, and de serves the united and liberal support of the true men of that county. THE Huntingdon Monitor has late ly been enlarged and otherwise im proved. Mr. Cornman makes a good paper and should be liberally support ed by the democracy of Huntingdon. HARRISBURG. I.ex falls on Genry; legislation for Bed ford County: Contested Seats: Hcetin;; of Democratic State Committee. Correspondence of the Bedford Gazette . HARRISBURG, Feb. 2 Mn. EDITOR:— Tired of looking on in the galleriesof the Senate and llou.se, I concluded, to-day, to make a recon noissance of Gen. Geary's position on "The Hill." Accordingly, 1 flanked the Legislature, and by adroitly pick eting my advance, secured a point of propinquity to the General. Was it unnatural, or singular, to note careful ly, as 1 did, the manners, speech and general appearance of the new Execu tive? If so, I can only plead in exten uation of the fault, that—/ could not help if. Geary and I are old friends. I knew him, years ago, in old Cambria; talked Democracy (what his present supporters used to call "loco-foco-ism") with him in old Westmoreland ; puffed him when he fell (in the ditch) at Che pultepec; "legged" for him with Mr. Buchanan when he aspired to the Gov ernorship of Kansas, and, during the late war, assisted somewhat (may the Lord forgive me!) in building up his newspaper reputation. Notwithstand ing the fact that I know the man so well, I felt curious to know how he de ports himself as Executive of the Com monwealth of Pennsylvania. Well, the Governor bears his blushing hon ors as meekly as his nature will per mit. He confesses that the Guberna torial chair is not cushioned with roses. From the very hour of his inaugura tion he has felt the lacerating thorns placed in tte Executive seat by men of his o\Vn party, with whom he had but lately b en on the best of terms. Even whilst hislnaugural was being deliver ed, he beheld impatience written all over the faces of those who ought not only to have tolerated, but applauded, his labored address. Even in that crowning hour of his triumph, he heard his predecessor in office, Gov. Curtin, whisper between his clenched teeth, "My God ! Will the thing nev er end ?" He feels deeply the enmity of Curtin and his friends; thinks that thelatter will secretly endeavor toleave him in a minority, politically speaking, in the next Legislature; but, with his finger on one sideof his nose, intimates that he is expert enough in turning po litical somersaults to be always with the party that is in power. Judging from his conversation* I think that 6i* j mon Cameron's position in politics will always indicate where His Excellency is to be found. For, says Geary, "1 | made Cameron Senator, and as Simon I is proverbially true to his friends, he i cannot be so ungrateful as to refuse to follow where I may choose to lead." i But affairs of State crowd upon theat ! tention of the Governor, and 1 must take my departure. "Call often," ; said the Governor, "we old Democrats have a fellow feeling which nothing on earth is puissant enough to aberun cate, eradicate, uproot or exterminate!" and with a bend of his body and a flourish of his hand, hewaved me from the Executive presence. Some legislation affecting your ooun ; ty, has been inaugurated. Senator Stutzman read, in his place, a few days | ago, "A bill to remit the Five per Cent um Penalty to the county of Bedford," which was referred to the Committee |of Judiciary Local. A bill has also ! passed the Senate changing the time of holding the courts in your district, i This bill provides that after the first day of March next, thecourts shall be gin as follows: In Fulton, on the first • Monday of April and August; the | third Monday of October and thesec ; ond Monday of January ; in Frankiin, on the second Monday of April and j August; the fourth Monday of Octo ; her and the third Monday of January; : in Bedford, on the fourth Monday of ! April and August; thesecond Monday i of November and the first Monday of I February; in Somerset, on the first \ Monday of May, the second Monday ! of September, the fourth Monday of November and the third Monday of February. A bill has also been repor ted from the Committee on Education | to attach certain lands and tenements in Bedford township to Bedford Bor | ough, for school purposes. One of the three contested seats in the House, has been decided, viz: that of Glass vs. Linton, from the Cambria district. Col. Linton, the sitting mem ber, was elected by a majority of over SOU, but his opponent, Mr. Glass, rely ing upon the precedents set by his par ty, supposed that it would be only nec essary for him to present himself as a contestant to insure the ousting of Col. Linton. But soflimsy was Mr. Glass' case that his party friends compelled him to withdraw from the contest. Two contested cases, one from Phila delphia, and one from the Lycoming district, are undecided. The sitting member in the Philadelphia case (Mr. Muliin) will, doubtless, retain his seat, but as to the case in the Lycoming dis trict, I think the Committee will oust Mr. Roush, the sitting member. His majority was only two votes, and the contestantalleges thatanumber of "de serters" voted for Mr. Roush. Of course, the Committee will pay no at tention to the decision of the Supreme Court which bears upon this subject. If they were to regard that decision, Mr. Roush would retain his seat. I have just been informed that Gov. Geary has issued a "previous pardon" to a Judge of Election, convicted in the Quarter Sessions of Berks county, of refusing the vote of a citizen on the ground of his being an alleged "deser ter." Truly "justice has fled to bru tish beasts." The Democratic State Committee met hereon Tuesday last. Notwithstand ing the inclemency of the weather, there was a pretty full attendance. The Committee determined to issue a call for a State Convention to nominate a candidate for Supreme Judge, to be held on the second Tuesday of June, next, and also recommended the elec tion of two delegates for each Repre sentative and Senator in the Legisla ture, to a Mass Convention to be held at Harrisburg, on a day to be fixed by the Chairman of the Democratic State Com mittee. The meeting was very harmo nious. Hon. S. L.Russell, of your place, was in town, a few days ago, looking after some local legislation for your county. More anon. LEX. WASHINGTON. Imppariimenl: The Radicals vs. the Cath olics: Koontz Speaketh : .Wore Vetoes, Af., Ac. Correspondence of the Bedford Gazette. WASHINGTON, Feb. 2. MR. EDITOR:— The impeachment scheme hangs fire, and as has been pre dicted, not much, if any, progress will be made in it by the present Con gress. The Judiciary Committee which has the matter in charge, is composed of the most radical of Radicals, and will, doubtless, hatch out some trick or other, by which they expect thev fur therance of their scheme to lie promo ted. The infamous Baker, who has been in the criminal courts time and again, has presented himself before the Committee to testify. Other wit nesses of a similar character are to be made the instruments of Ashley & Co., and had not the notorious Sanford Conover, upon whose testimony Mrs. Surratt was convicted' confessed his perjury in that case, he would, doubt less, figure as largely in the impeach ment movement as he did in the trials of the Assassination Conspirators. The Conovers have not all confessed yet, and, I doubt not, plenty ot them will be on hand to assist the enemies of the President. It is said that John H. Surratt is to be brought before the Committee, and if he can be suborned to testify to something that will dam age Mr. Johnson, he is to be set at lib erty. Wouldn't such an arrangement speak highly for the justice and honesty of a Radical Congress. But with all these convenient witnesses at hand, 1 do not think that the present Congress will be able to accomplish anything in the way of impeachment. The For tieth Congress may undertake to carry the matter further, as "Old Cock-eye" j (Ben. Butler) will be a member of that body, and he is a terrible fellow, to-be sure, having already impeached Brick Pomeroy. At present the Radical Mon grelsaje so divided into factions, that they are unable to agree upon any measure, and I hope and believe that they will not be more harmonious In the next Congress. Tliad. Stevens has lost the control of his fellow destruc tives, the Pennsylvania Legislature having used him up most effectually. He has succeeded but once, since his defeat for U. S. Senator, in tallying a majority for any measure he has advo cated. The other day he njoved to utrikeout the mission to Rome, on the ground thkt protectant worship was prohibited within the wails of that city. He was asked for proof of this allegation, but could give nothing but hearsay. The Government hail receiv ed no official information whatever, upon the subject. But the old hatred of the Catholics still cherished by the Mungrel Know Nothings now trans formed into Radicals, found vent in the resolution offered by Stevens and it was carried. How any Catholic can, in future, vote with these men, passes my comprehension. Your representative, Mr. Koontz, "spoke a piece," the** other day. His speech was almost entirely devoted to a discus-ion of the right of the negro "to wield the ballot." He argued in favor of granting suffrage to the negroes, without limit or qualification. Did the people of your district bargain for tiffs, when they voted for him last fall? The President has vetoed the bills for the admission of Nebraska and Colora do. In the case of the former it is al leged that it does not contain sufficient population, and that about one half of its inhabitants are opposed to admis sion. Colorado, itself, protests against admission, through its territorial House of Representatives. Yet the Radicals, for thesake ofstrengthening themselves in Congress and in the Electoral Col lege, insist upon forcing these States into ihe Union. Hon. Philip John son, of the "Tenth Legion" district in your State, died night before last, of congestion of the liver. His death was sudden and unexpected, though he had not been in good health for some time. His remains will be interred in the Congressional Cemetery in this city. Hon. Henry S. Magraw, formerly State Treasurer of Pennsylvania, died here, on Thursday last, of apoplexy. Mr. Magraw has latterly been a citizen of Maryland, and at his death, represent ed the county of Cecil in the Maryland Legislature. PRY. Cori-espoinleiice Between General B. F. Butler ami Brick Pomeroy. The La Crosse (Wisconsin) Democrat publishes thefollowing correspondence, as having taken place bet ween General Butler and its editor, Mr. Pomeroy. It explains itself: "No. 71 BROADWAY, N.Y. CITY, ) "January 13, 1867. j "M. M.

SPECIAL NOTICES. CONSUMPTION CURABLE BY DR. SCHENCK'S MEDICINES.—TO cure consumption, the system must be prepared so that the lungs will heal. To accomplish this, the liver and stomach must first be cleansed and an appetite created for good wholesome food, which, by these medicines will be digested properly, and good healthy blood made; thus building up the constitution. Schenek's JSanarake Pills cleanse the stomach of all bilious or mucous accumulations; and, by using the Sea Weed Tonic in connection, the appetite is restored. Schenck's Pulmonic Syrup is nutritious as well as medicinal, and, by using the three remedies, all impurities are expelled from the system, and good, wholesome blood made, which will repel all dis ease. If patients will take there medicines ac cording to directions, consumption very frequently in its last stage yields readily to their action.— Take the pills frequency, to cleanse the liver and stomach. It does not follow that because the bow els are not costive they are not required, for some times in diarrhoea they are necessary. The stom ach must be kept healthy, and an appetite created to allow the Pulmonic Syrup to act on the respir atory organs properly and allay any irritation. Then all that is required to perform a permanent cure is, to prevent taking cold. Exercise about the rooms as much as possible, eat iall the richest food—fat meat, game, and, in fact, anything the appetite craves; but be particular and masticate twh. 2d w PREPARED OIL OF PALM AND MACE for PRESERVING.
