[CP'VVe issue the Gazette this week uader most j embarrassing circumstances. The editor Gen. BOWMAN, since our last issue, has been so ex ceedingly low that his Physician deems it ex pedient to exclude all persons from holding any ■ intercourse with him whatever. V\ lien, or, whether he shall ever again be able to resume his duties as editor, we are unable to say, as lie is still in rather a critical condition. This is truly j to be regreted—it is unfortunate that he is pro*- trated with disease at this particular time when his services are so much needed when it is so essential that the claims of the different Demo cratic candidates should be properly placed be- , fore the voters of the county. It is not indis pensable, however, that this should be done now. We believe the candidates are men well knowq to the people throughout the county, and , that they shall receive, as they are justly enti tled, a majority of the votes polled on the second Tuesday ot October, 1555. 1 heir claim to the j suffrages of the people was strongly urged in the Gazette of last week—they were sepken of as men in every way qualified to discharge the duties of the offices for which they were nomi nated, and all who know them know this to be trite: hence we can see no reason why they should not receive the united support of the Democratic Party, as well as that of those honest Whigs who have such an abhorrence to the mid-night prowlings of the dark lantern order. FREEMEN" of Bedford County vote the Demo cratic Ticket, and bv so doing you will vindicate your love for civil and religious freedom. P. S. Since the above was set in type, the editor has been improving and is now consider ed out of danger. Appointment. XjP'We learn from the Greensburg papers that the Hon. J. M.

Nor is it any more likely to be re pealed bv the next Congress. The fact is there is no-such thing as a retrogtade movement possi ble. No single one of the great measures of the Democratic party has ever yt been repealed. Already! rG "The Know-N'othingCrder was establish ed, ostensibly, to break down office seekers. In Philadelphia, the Daily Sun was the Organ of the Order. But it has become weary of its functions, and thus discourses of the patriots who make up the fraternity in that city "We are no longer disposed to be made the • caps paw for designing demagogues, to pluck from the hot ashes of political contention all the honors and profits while our principles are not in the least advanced. We have seen enough to make the heart sicken at the corruption and degeneracy of the new school politicians, and active cauterv must be applied to eat out their proud flesh, 'if selfish, greedy, and unworthy anxiety after place, shall induce a departure from the straight path of honest integrity, the most lamentable disasters must result." This portrait, like a universal Almanac, will answer for all latitudes. Hear Mr. Carroll I rr/-JOUN CARROLL, Esq., the great-grandson j of Charles Carroll of Carrollton, who, when j signing his name to the Declaration of lndepen- I dence, put that of his residence also that when the King would come over he might find him at home, his now running on the Democratic anti-Know-Nothing ticket in Howard county, Maryland, made his first speech on the Stn inst. at a meeting of both parties. After speaking of the position of both parties in the State and tlm couutiy, he declared to the Know-Noth- ings: "I am a Catholic; but if you must proscribe, do not commence upon so humble an individu al as myself. Go back to the past, and erase from fhe record of the Declaration of Indepen dence the name of my ancestor, and the com panion of your forefathers, Charles Carroll of CttrroLUon.'" [C^ i *An error occurred 1 m our Editorial Col umn last week, in which the word " cnn ,r ap peared instead of "cannol.' 1 OPPOSITION TO THE JUG LAW!" r XF"Wf make the following extract from a letter written bv JUDGE VVIEKINS, the Demo cratic candidate for State Senate in Allegheny county, in opposition to the infamous Liquor Law which was passed by the Know Nothing 'Legislature last winter, and goes into effect on Monday next. Would space permit, we would delight to lay the entire letter before our rea ders, as it contains the. honest sentiments of a man who has lived long enough to he thorough ly acquainted with the subject which he discus ses—who has sat for many years on the Bench, and tested the utter impraet ibi lit y of severe pe nal enatcments, which beai no just proportion to the magnitude of the offence which they un dertake to create and punish. The Pittsburg Union, speaking in reference to this letter, says of Judge W. that be is a man who has lived beyond his three score years and ten, mingled much in society, passed through an active career of varied service both at home and abroad, and while still possessing the clearness and vigor of mind that marked his earlier years, affords a striking illustration ofthe doctrine that individ ual virtue has its true foundation in the heart, and not in the adventitious circumstances by which the man is surrounded. But to the ex tract : "I am not an example ol reformation. 1 have been throughout my long days, and in the course of many vicissitudes, a rigidly temperate man. I have never, in the midst of the revel and the frolics ol others, been intoxicated. I have never drank malt liquor, wine or spirits in the many and varied sceues ol diversified so ciety in which I have been thrown at home and abroad. I am, sincerely, the advocate of Temperance, and my soul yearns for the whole some reform whicti would expel from our com munity habits of over indulgence and the im prudent use ot drinks so ruinous to our advance ment and happiness in life. But, the great and deeply interesting ques tion is—How is this reform to he brought a hout? I answer, by example, reason and moral suasion ; by the training of our youth and by education : by the teaching of your neighbor, the schoolmasters, and the Ministers of the Church, and by models, brightly serving lor illustration, placed before us by our enthusias tic legislators themselves. This great social and absorbing object cannot lie obtained by per secution, nor by wild and extravagant enthusi asm : nor by the imposition ol heavy fines and imprisonment, making the poor poorer, and ruinous to the unoffending family of the delin quent. Nor by laws so novel and penal as to be almost impossible to be carried into execu tion, and, certainly so repulsive to the good sense of the community that nothing but the peril of forfeiture would excite and bring out the ihlormer and extort the odious accusation jelore the magistrate. Nor could any good or > a hob-some efficacy he found in the enactment j )f a statute, already abjured and condemned at i ts birth place, the "Maine Liquor Law," passed , >V the people of a State whose liquor flows as : jJentifutly as their own liver of Penobscot. I •vonld as soon think of reviving in Pennsylva- : lissome of the laws of those fellow ritizens against witchcraft and sorcery, as to allow their modern example, manifesting how rifted they are in the office of intolerance. "orm, an<Tin my"fiwtitffy K f6 VveTsevSre pjVai :ies, and to the imposition of disproportioned ones and imprisonment, 1 should have voted, lad I been a member ofthe Legislature, against he present "License Law," and am of opinion t should not remain upon our statute book. It aas not called for by the public voice, and was n positive disregard of the vote of the people >f the State. It was in mockery of the solemn udgment of the freemen of the Common wealth, railed for by the Legislature itself." FREEMEN of Bedford County, our candi dates for the Legislature stand pledged to vote ' for the repeal of this iniquitous "JUG LAW," and, therefore, all w ho vote against them, sanc tion its absurd provisions. Qjr* We understand that Mr. Jacob Reed has just returned from the Eastern cities where he has purchased a large and extensive assort ment of Drv Goods, Groceries, Hardware, Kc., which he intends opening out on Saturday next, in the room formerly occupied by A. B. Cra mer & Co. He purchased his goods low, and consequently will sell cheap. The Result in Maine! "HAVE YOU HEARD THE NEWS FROM MAINE ? ' The Maine election has resulted in a com oletc victory ofthe friends ol civil and religious liberty and the constitution of our common countrv. The unscrupulous combination ot abolitionism, Know-Nothingism,and fanaticism, has been routed, horse, foot, and dragoons.— The triumph seems to lack no element of com pleteness. All honor to the sterling Maine Democracy and the patriotic men who have vo ted with them against heresy, bigotry and wrong. The tidings of their victory, flying now on the lightning wires, will give joy to ev ery true patriot in the Union. As the Boston Post well observes, this result is no ordinary one : and one destined to have no common ef fect.-" It is a victory ofthe right sort, and at the right time, and in the right place. Kit is it that the people of Maine, who have so much cause to love the Union, should repudiate the politi cians who, with alien hearts, tell them there is no Union. Fit is it, too, that it should be the first New England Slate that should make Know-Nothingism bite the dust. Fit is it, again, that the State in which Neal Dowism arose, i should be the first to cast it down. Maine has i done all this, and now she will stand with the kindling word Diriuo, "I lead the way," on tier motto. —. irgus. Sudden Disappearance and Death. On the 7th, inst., John Bolinger, of Pluin stead township, in this county, went to Phila delphia market, with two wagons, his father, an aged man driving one ot them. W hen they had reached the city, Samuei. Boli.m.eu, the father, and the young man put up at different houses, and in the morning, Samuel, who at times is wrong in hrs mind, left tow n on loot, and without his wagon, alleging to some per son that his son had gone off without him. He was seen at the Seven Presidents tavern, then on the track of the North Pennsylvania Rail road, near Tacony station, then on the street r ad near Dav'wville. and after that he called at a house on thp Bristol road below Hartsville, ; where he 'fathered up some weeds and other i rubbish, piled them against the fence, and asked j a woman lor some fire. She refused to let him s have it, stating that he would burn it. He j then attempted to enter the house for it, hut she refused him an entrance, as she did not know him, and was fearful he might do her i bodily harm. He was next seen at the farm of > AMOS SNVOEU in Warminster, but Mr. S. could nut understand a word he said. He left and t went to the woods of JOHN BRADY, near by, and the saine evening he was seen coming out <. of it and was afterwards observed piling up 1 ' rails and oven wood against a fence, and pull- j ing up carrots and weeds. The next day some . children saw a man in the same woods, on Fri- j i day last, his body was found by a son of Mr. ' SNYDER. Notice was given and an inquest j held over the body by LBMEN BANKS, Esq., ! which reported a verdict in accordance with the facts of the case. The remains were sent ■ to the Bucks county Almshouse for interment. The woods showed evidences of his labor, as it j abounded in places where he had piled up | brush, and in several spots there were large j collections of withs tied around trees as if lor ; the purpose of kindling a fire. The body when j found was partly decomposed and was in a hoi- j rible slate. His son carne home from the city on Safur day, and hearing that the fa!her was seen com- i ing out of town on the right road for Dovles- j town, expected to find him at home. Not j finding him there, he immediately had him adveitisedln papers and bills, but they did not i hear anything from him until his body was j brought to the Almshouse, when it was identi- j fietl and interred in the Doylestown Cemetry • on Saturday last.— Duylcstown Democrat Sep tember IS.

LETTER FROM liEV. THUS. K. DAVIS, j following letter from Rev. DAVIS, \ formerly of this place, will no doubt be read j with interest by his many friends in Bedford j md elsewhere : SAX FRANCISCO, CAR. Aug. 17, ISS-3. GKN. G. VV. BOWMAN— My Dear Friend :—1 promised to write to you, up 3fi my arrival at San Francisco, that you might, through ttie (lazrttr, let my friends in Bedford County know how we had been prospered on the way. Mon lay, the 2&th of May, was a day of sadness as I left Bedford, wondering whether I should ever see again , !he beautiful mountains which encircle it, or ever j tirain look upon the familiar faces ot ftie dear friends ■villi whom I had ju-t bid good bye, and whether I should ever find, on the far-off Pacific cosi-T, as sweet . i home as that i wa-. leaving. A more melancholy | lay "as Friday, the Sth of June, w hen our darling VI;\n11. was laid in her liitle grave at Carlisle, uev •rntore in this life to gladden us with the light of j ler deep blue eyes, and the music of her merry ; angh. But in view of her delicate health, and of he perils which were ever before us, we felt that it ! sasbe-t—that it a precious comfort to leave m chihi sleeping in he green and beautiful bory ng ground at home, where the e-e of affection would ilteii rest upon her lowly couch, and the hand often - lerne-s be stretched lorth to guard it. We saiieii from New York, in the Mail Steamer 1.1.1N015, at 2 o'clock, on Wednesday, the 20th of une. We had about 500 pa-sengers, including 50 htldren. The crew numbered 107. By 0 o'clock and rr>y littie family wpre regularly and thoroughly ea sick, and here ihe curtain must drop, ll 1 were o tell of all the distresses of Mrs. DAVIS, who eon inued to be sick until we landed at Sail Framjlscn lers would be excited. And if 1 were to tell how A" l ni.i K and 1 lecovered alter a day or two, and how he restless and mischievous little urchin kept me rotting alter him, up stairs arid down -Tsirs, and all hroifh Ihe ship, during the remainder of our voyage _my*mind tilled with anxiety, all the time, lest be -hould fall overboard, or pitch into the midst ot the machinery, I have no doubt that a faithful deserip :ion of this, my daily employment, would be amus ins to some of our old acquaintances. On Tuesday the 26th we hail a view, lor some hours, ol Queen Isabella, JevM il, "The bright littie isle of the Ocean," the beautiful Cuba, which some of our people, not having the 10th Commandment before their eyes, seem to covet so much. On the afternoon of Friday, the 2'Jth we landed, about o o'clock, at Aspiuw&il a new pott, established by the C. S. M. Steamsbij L'o. about six miles from the old town ol I hagres. o which we heard so much,and that so dreadful, in lh> days of 184f> and 50. We spent the night at the "Ci?; Hotel" in Aspttiwall, and when, in the morning, tin -tin arose in his splendor, we were treated to a van ety of Tropical sight- and sounds, full of novelty am interest. If I we're giving more than a bare outlin ol our trip, I would sp-ak'of the coca-nut trees, tli monkeys and parrots. Isthmian natives and Jamaici ne-roes, that abound at Aspinwall. About ten if clock we started in the cars, for Panama, 48 milti distant. The scenery, by .this way, was altogethti different from any we had ever seen before, artdl places very romantic and beautiful. Ihe frail an open dwellings ot the natives, and these latter Ano! lounging half-dressed or naked in the shade, w. l strange novelties to the passengers. As long as tl cars were in motion we had a plea,ant breeze, I e, joyed our ride, through Die groves of tig and coci trees, very much. Hut the stoppages were lrequ**f on account ot" the dubious condition ot the road, aj then the heat was rather great for comfort. Bet we 3 and I o'clock we arrived at Panama and exp"! enceil the -trauge emotions attending the first sis of that mighty Ocean, whose waters wash neuj halt the globe. Then ensued, in the course of tiaj jiorting passengers and baggage from the shore to | Map. which being two miles distant, a scene of c| fusion, and a war of tongues, altogether iiidescribaljj The scolding and swearing ol the native boatmen| their efforts to get ahead of each other iu putr| their passengers on boatd, were appaling. By Si clock, all were on board—all in safety, with the | ception of those fooli-h steerage passengers who | taken advantage ol the day on land to get drunkl At 9 o'clock the noble -teamer, JOHN L. STEPJIJ was on her way to tsan Francisco. The moon siji brightly, and a lovelier scene I think 1 never bel than that moon-light scene as we rapidly glided f the Bay ot Panama. Wednesday the 4th of July, was celebrated board our vessel in a truly patriotic and enthusij manner. At midday the passengers, ladies audi tlemer.. assembled on deck, where we had an I tion, from a Democratic Young American, precel by the reading ol the Declaration, and by prayerj followed by several patriotic song-. At 5 o'J we had u dinner extraordinary, followed by nJ ous toasts and excellent speeches: On the morning of the lith we put into the s did harbor of Acapulco, on the Mexican coa-t coal. We were there from 5 o'clock until noj As we appioached the Bay in the cool ol the I morning hour, 1 thought the scene equalled, if not sttrpa-s, that 1 had enjoyed so much on thl of Panama. M;>y of us went on shore. Acaj is said to be the hottest place in North Amend can well helieve it- "ever alraid of J stroke belore, 1 believe; but as 1 walked ove heated pavements of that Mexican town, arid Itj influence of its scorshing sun, 1 was alraid ol itj I complained of the heat to the lady of the Am Consul, Col.

And true enough :it was mid-winter crossed the 1-thrnns, and visited Acapuleo, j such be their winter—what, O what, mus'J summer be I On Tuesday, the HJtb, we exp.

Keen the sea sick ladies smiled, and lett their roucbes for a look at the California coast and the Gate that opens into ; San Francisco Bay. J have devoted to much of my sheet to reminiscen ces of the voyage that I must reserve for a future letter my impressions of this new and wonderous Mate. My time has been spent principally in this citv. For a weak or ten days after landing, I was ,11 " 0 f the Panama fever, of which I hope that lam i reapingh and shall still further reap the benefits. I shall he here tor some months, supplying the pulpit j of the First Presbyterian Church. San Francisco is . a most a*toni*hiug city. Every one who vi>its it must be tilled with astonishment. It is hard to rea- j lize that this vast city, with all its magnificence, is j the growth of but six years; and when we recollect j that brief period, it has twice been ties- j troyed by lire, its present condition seems marvel lous. the politeness, hospitality and kindness of heart of the people here—at least of those with whom 1 have become acquainted could haidly be sur passed. Now that so many ladies have <t late come out to California, there is at least so far as this city , is concerned as intelligent, relined and chiistiau so- j ciety as can be found anywhere. Fevertheless in a place so new, and among a people brought suddenly! together Irom the lour quarters of the earth, by the cry ol gold! gold 1 it would be strange if there were j not many of the meanest, basest of mankind. You, are now, I suppose,suffering Irorn the intense heat of the dog days, and the Springs have not yet lost their attractions lor lhe heated, weaned citi zens of Baltimore and Pittsburgh. Do you not al most envy me when 1 tell you that we now have the mild mornings ol May and June; in the af ternoon, we have nothing worse than a sharp blow such as you have on a clear day in March, and in i the evenings and nights, we have a delightful bear \ mg tempeiatuie like that which you enjoy on an au tumnal evening. I wear my flannels con-tanily. — When 1 go out in alternooii and evening, 1 button my overcoat up to my chin. At night I lie down and sleep soundly beneath two pair of blankets, to arise in the morning strengthened and relre-hed. And then the great beauty of this climate is, that we are not now looking lorward, with shivering apprehen sions, to a cold, harsh, changeful winter—but that all are anticipating, with feelings of delight, the ar rival, in a lew mouths, of the mild and pleasant sea son of refreshing showers and flowery landscapes. 1 have not yet heard trom Bedford. It will give ! me siocere and lively pleasure to receive letters and ! papers from ther, and to hear tfiat God is smiling j upon and helping the good people of the place, and especially fbe congregation 1 had the happiness of i serving during seveiai pleasant years, is favored ' withtfhe ministry of an able and acceptable pastor.

One ol the most dreadful accidents took place in our city yesterday which it has ever been our duty to record. As Mr. James Daniel oi the fjnri of Headman Co., gas fitters, was eti ■ gaged in stopping a leakage in the grocery store |of Mr. John V. Barbee, corner of Junes and I Abercorn streets, the gas exploded with terrible I effect, destroying every thing therein, and dread j fully mangling not only Mr. Daniel, but the wile, mother and child of Mr. Barbee, who ; chanced to be in the room. The building was a wooden one, and occu i pied for the double purpose of a store and resi dence. The former had but recently been opened, and contained a stock v alued at §I,BOO |to §2,000. It appears that gas was introduced j into the building for the first time on Tuesday. I Since that time the odor has been very offensive, ami it was believed there was an important leakage. Yesterday afternoon, as, engaged in j the same search, he was moving a light alone | the crack in the floor, just above the pipe, the .: gas took fire and exploded, as stated above, ..Avalll tm.ibJe effect. The tables, counters, gru pletely destroyed. Ibe floor was blown up and that above broken in many pieces. Fur i nilure in the second story was badly injured 'land windows in the third broken out. Tin ; report of the explosion was like that of a can . non, and was heard in distant parts of the city I rom a careful examination, we are satisfiec there was no leakage in the pipes. They re main uninjured. It is more probable that gar accumulated beneath the floor, since Tuesday. ,t was the cause ol the terrible accident. '■ Ihe flrst that Mr. Daniel remembers he found J himself lying in the street. He must hav> ~ been blown directly through the window. Hi j| right leg was badly broken ju>t below the knee, otherwise he miraculously escaped injury. M was taken to the house ot Mr. Headman, where l; he was attended by Dr. Fish. At latest ac i< counts lie was doing well. We have our state d rnent in regard to the explosion directly from ' him. u f Mrs. Sarah Barbee, the wife, had her left tj ankle badly broken and her foot liorri'dv bruised. ' J)r. Bullock thought amputation was necessary. J Mrs. B. was otherwise badly injured. Her J sufferings were very severe. She was taken I to her own room in the story above the store. J Mrs. Mary Barbee, the mother, who was in ,i the store at the time, escaped without serious J injury. She was taken to the house of Mrs. Reyes, her daughter, where she was doing well at our last accounts.— Savannah Georgian of the Bth.
