Men and brothers! ye aro voting for liberty! strike laird, strike home! JJow's the day Rnd now's the hour to break tho tyrant's hated pow er ! Up strong-armed and true-hearted Demo crats of Bedford county, "up and at them!" Go to the Foils Early! The Whole Ticket. Democrats will lie asked by their Abolition enemies to split their .ticket, and vote for some of the Abolition candidates. Tell these scamps when they ask you to do this, that you are not in the lmbit of voting for men who call Demo crats Copperheads and Traitors and want them hung and their property taken from them. G. D. Trout Has said in the presence of respeetublo men who can be produced that bo would rather have his head cut off than vote for a.democrat.— Yet this same jtihy candidato will have tho ef frontery to ask democrats to vote for him—the man who thinks it "nobody's buisinoss if he did marry a niggef." Millard Fillmore. That tine patriot, Ex-President Millard Kill more. has united himself with (lie Democratic party and will address tho people of Philadel phia in behalf of Judgr Woodward. His speech will linvc great weight with every honest reflect ing man. He is also announced 1o speak at Erie. Gen. McClellan. The hero of the Peninsula and Aiitictam. is flow in Philadelphia and appeals to his old friends, tho soldiers of the Army of the Poto mac, to vote (or his friend, Woodward. Gen. McClellan desires the election of Woodward. How can anj- soldier voto against the favorite candidate of glorious "Little Mac?" Barnburning, &c. That diabolical specimen of mondacity, tho lledford Inquirer, charges Democrats with burn ing barns, <£c. If Wheelbarrow, or any of his correspondents know niiy Democrat to have been guilty of snch work, why don't they prosecute him! If guilty he ought to he punished. Wheel barrow also charges us with having counseled resistance to tho draft. If this be trao, why not havo us arrested and tried for tho offence ? It ißi Wheelbarrow'# duty to have us brought to justice. Why doesn't he do it I—further the Democratic nominees aro accused of being "Se cessionists," "Traitors*!' etc.. If thdy are, why not have.them at once taken before the U. S. Court at Pittsburg and tried ? That would put an cad to such men's troubling the "loyal" peo ple of the county. Why don't you do it, Abo litionists? Ah! you know that they would bo honorably acquitted and- then you would be es topped froth slandering them in the future Look at This! lied lord county's shave of the war debt, is at present $4,598,502 002 The valuation of Bedford county, 1)V the last Revenue Board, is $3,458,223 00. — How we do prosper under Abolition rule. Vote for 0.. E. Shannon, for I'rothonotary. His election will save you many dollars in the way of fees. Vote for Samuel Davis, for Associate Judge. He is a man of in tegrity, sound judgment and great fjjmncss of character. It is very important that a man like Maj. Davis should be on the bench. Vote for James B. Farquhar, for Treasurer. He is an upright man, who w ill sec that the public moneys are safely kept. He is a good and true Democrat. Remember Farquhar, and be sure to have 1 his hanie on the ticket. Vote for Capt. Aldstadt. for Sheriff. The old J Jomoeratie veteran who stood up for so many years against the whelming tide of Abolitionism in St. Clair, deserves the support of every Democrat. Let all personal feelings be laid aside for the good of the cause and let Capt. Aldstadt' . receive the full Democratic vote. Voto for George Rhoads, for Commissioner. The office of Commis sioner is very important, just now. If the Abolitionists bad been in power in that o#- iice during the past 3 years, our county debt would have been twice as great a3 it is, for the reason that the leaders of that party have been desirous of dragging the county into all kinds of schemes connected with the war. Beware of voting for a man like V illiam Smith, the Abolition candidate for Commissioner, for ho will bo controlled by the Abolition leaders in Bedford, who are ever ready to plunge the county in debt to further their own plans concerning.the war. Vote For j 11LNR\ MOSES, for Poor Director, for j DAN'L. BARLEY, for Auditor, for J AS. j MATTINGLY, for Coroner, allot' them ) good and true men. Remember That it is all-important that a Democratic Senator and a Democratic Representative he chosen. The majority in tho Senate may depend upon the result in this district. The State will be re-apportioned into dis tricts for Members and Senators, at the coin ing session. Democrats, if you want to [ keep Bedford courtty separate from Somer set, vote for It. F MV.Virij T , (C __ ~ very important to the party, and, there | fore, let every Democrat stand up firmly for the nominees. Gro to the Polls Early! s2l per Pay! GEO. W. HOUSEHOLDER, the Abo lition candidate for Senate, (eok s2l per ; day, out of the people's pockets for occu pying a seat in the Legislature which his own party friends decided, belonged to an other man. How can any honest man vote for George W. Householder? A Change. Let us haw a change. Co.me, men of reason, help us make a change. ' Now's your time! Delay not till next year what ought to be and can be done to-day. Miners Laborers! Men of Broadtop! Look to your own in terests and vote against Andrew G. Cur tin, who is in favor of the EmancipJfon Proclamation, which will operate to send the negroes North to take your places, at lower priee.tuin the mines and WQrk-sliops of the couiiff,' 1 Remember this and vote accordingly! Bets and Brag! The Abolitionists are trying to frighten the timid by bragging and offering to bet. They arc furnished with green-backs by Curlin to do this. After you have voted, yon can easily back them down by staking your change on Woodward. "We have seen a number of tlwm beaten at this game already. Don't Believe Them. To bolster up their sinking cause, the Abolitionists circulate all kinds of stories a bout this, that and the other Democrat go ing over 1o their party. These stories are not true, at least so ijar as Bedford county is concerned. Those Democrats who are now with them, went over a year or two ago. On the other hand, tho Democracy arc daily gaining from tlie ranks of the enemy. Bed ford county is all right by an overwhelming majority. Let the Democrats Stand linn and turn out in their strength and that ma jority will run up to J\ooo. The State is ailsQjigiit and will give Woodward a large majority. . 40,0011! Well informed Democrats estimate tlio majority for Woodward at 40,000! If a fair vote be taken, we have not the lenst doubt that it will be 50,000. Go to the Polls Early! Fraud upon the Soldiers. ; The Abolitionists have made arrange ments to get furloughs for such Boldiers as will vote for Curtin. No Woodward soldier will be permitted to go home. The Aboli tion committee have issued a circular to have their soldiers assessed, even-though they be thousands of miles away. Upon this vote, selected from the army, they build such slight hopes of success as they yet possess. But they will he disappointed. The PEO PLE are rising in their might, and nil the frauds Abolitionism can resort to, can not slay the avalanche of public indignation how rushing upon Curtin and his minions. ; Wheelbarrow Electioneering! Fraud and Forgery! Ia the Bedford Inqtiirrer, of week before last, appeared what purported to lie a letter written by 15. F. Meyers to aM r. Reed, in Woodberry. Tills publication was made to inoense thofiicuds of Mr. Hall and the Abolition tricksters thought, when they accomplished this, fraud, that they would certainly make great capital against the Dcnicratic nominee for Assembly. But they have been circumvented and their FORGERY will avail them nothing.—There arc but two persons of the name of Reed in Middle and South Wood berry tps., and they liave made the following statements which place Mr. Wheelbarrow in about as enviable a light before the public as did tins brand recently put upon him by the Burgess and Council. Read these statements, Republi cans, and blush for tho fraud and meanness of which those who claim to bo your leaders have been guilty. [LETTER FROM N. P. REED.J WOODREUKY, Oct. 5, 18G3. MR. MEYERS: A letter having recently appeared in the Bedford Inquirer , with your signature appended, representing to have hecn writ ten to "Mr. Reed," of Woodberry, I here by state that if any such letter as that, over your signature, is in the hands of the editor of that paper, it is a forgerv. Yours, &c.;, N. P. REED. [LETTER FROM AARON REED.] S. WooomutuY Tp., Sept. 20, 1803. MA. METERS: I see by tho last issue of the Bedford Inquirer , that a letter to "Mr. Reed," pur porting to have been written by you, in re gard to Mr. Hall's claims as a candidate for the Democratic nomination for Assembly, is published in that paper. Now, I take this method of stating that I never received any such letter from you. AARON REED. cJiiTir"*"* j. The active, working supporters ofCurtin n;o the OFFICE-HOLDERS, CQNTUACTOTIjs nnd these Shoulder-strapped gentry who love to see "greenbacks" hot fear to go within see ing distance of the "graybneks." Federal As sessors, Collectors nnd Deputy Collectors, Mar shals and Enrolling Officers are the men who support Curtin. These cormorants fatten upon the substance of the people flung into their caps by Lincoln and Curtin, who wring it from tho honest yeomanry of the country, by laws passed by themselves and their agents. How can such men look the hard-working people of the country in the face and ask them for their votes"? Capt. John Aldstadt. h'lic Democratic candidate for Sheriff, Capt. John Aldstadt, has been made tho target of ev ery arrow in tho Abolition quiver. But lie is clothed in the armor of purity and honesty and the shafts of his enemies fall harmless at his feet. He has been abused by tho branded slan derer of the Inquirer without stint and without the slightest reason. Just as Andy Crisman was, last year, assailed by that miserable crea ture, so Capt. Aldstadt is now made the object of his attacks, Crismnn was elected and now we hear no more of his "disloyalty." The same will be the case with Capt. Aldstadt. lie will bo elected by an unprecedented majority, and then poor Wheelbarrow will go whinin" and fawning around him to get printing favors, just as ho does now with Andy Crisman. That Subscription. GI DLON D. TROUT subscribed to the coun ty fund which was promised tho nino months' volunteers, the people of Bedford county, are now called upon to pay Mr. Trout's subscrip tion in the shape of a nice littlo hit of county [tax. Mr. Trout and his political friends brought this tax upon the county, by declining to make' good their promises and subscriptions to the Sol diers. What think you of that, Tax-payers ? A Pledge. The editor of this paper, although a candidate, j refrained from "blowing his own trumpet" and bus hitherto permitted his political enemies to assail him almost without reply. Hq now takes this opportunity to say, (what is unnecessary to be said to any man of sense) that he is, as he has always been and always will be, a UNION MAN, in favor of the Union as Washington and his compeers made it, and now pledges him self, if elected, to use every effort in his power to bring about a restoration of tho Union as it was. ff3?-l'rof. Edward Hrookd, of tho MHlersville State Normal School, will lcctifrcin the Luther an Church, to the students of the Normal Schoo' now in session in this place, on Friday cveniug next. Subject, "Thought and the Thinker." The public are invited, and we advise all who wish to enjoy a rare treat to attend. Examine Your Tick ets! When a hunter wants to make n sure shot lie first examines the priming of his gun, before lie pulls tho trigger. So let every Democratic voter tirsi examine his ticket before he presents it at tlno ballot-box. Democrats, let every man of you, this time, fire a SURE SIIOT and a SOLID SHOT. Let your ammunition boas follows, and compare it carefully with the fol lowing before you use it: Governor, George W. Woodward. Senator, William J. Baer. , Representative,, lienj. T. Meyers. I'rotlionotury, Register and Recorder and Clerk \ of the Courts, O. E. Shannon. Sheriff, John Aldstadt. Associate Judge, Samuel Davis. Treasurer, James 13. Farquhar. Commissioner, George Rlioads. Auditor, Daniel Barley. Poor Director, Henry Moses. Coroner, James Mattingly. Judge of Supremo Court, Walter H. Lowrie. The ticket for Supreme Judge must bo cut off from the bottom ot" tho ticket and tied up with the balance. Have your tickets carefully pre pared and tied, before you go to the polls. Bo sure to have both pieces of tho ticket. Boasting. Some of the Abolition leaders arc going about, the country bragging about what they expect to do. To hear them talk you would think there will not be a single Democrat left in all Penn sylvania by election-day. They are only whist ling to keep up their courage. They know that many of their men are daily deserting them and coming over to tho true Union party, tho Democracy, and hence they blow loud and lus tily in order to prevent others from following their example. Tlicy have offered to bet on Curtin, but when it came to putting up the money, they "weren't there." Let no man bo alarmed at tho gassing of tlieso tricksters. Cnrtin's Scavenger. • The Chief of the Arsenal at Harrisburg, Maj. D. Washabaugh, instead of being at his post attending to his duties, has been here for weeks, trying to warm up the tepid veins of his party in this county. Every "Republican" fc-ho is found out by hiin to have expressed an fifcvillingness to vote ho visits and drums at until ho gets him to promiso that he will attend tmfflli L 3 It kiuq uC BCUICiIUCi iui Curtin and is trying to sweep every lane and by-way with his Aliolition besom. The reason of the Major's activity for Curtin is the fact that lie gets a nice little salary of Seven dollars per dug in his present position and ho knows very well that if Curtin is not re-elected he will havo to take his hand out of tho public crib. Let tho people bear this in mind when they are approached by this gentleman. Democrats, Be Firm! Democrats, firmness nnd resolution on your part will win a great victory for your principles on the thirteenth of October. Falter not an instant, hut march straight forward in the path of duty. No matter what calumnies aro ut tered against tho Democratic nominees, or how loud rtic boasts of tho paid tools of Curtin, regard them not, but push on the good work for Democracy and the old Union. The Abo lition tricksters will say any thing, even if they know it to he false, to mislead the people.— They will garble and misquote extracts from Democratic spocches and papers, as the Bedford Inquirer is now doing. They will circulate lies about prominent Democrats refusing to support the Democratic ticket. They wHI attempt to stigmatise Democratic candidates as "Secession ists" and call them all kinds of viUanons names. They will heart of what they intend doing, and hating plenty of "greenbacks," furnished them out of the President's "Secret Service Fund" raised by taxation of the people, they will of fer to bet on the success of their Slate Ticket, Remember that tlicso things aro all more parts of a game which the Abolition wire pullers are trying to play for their own benefit. Be firm and determined and all will he well! The Meeting at Woodberry On Monday last, was a grand success. A bout 500 peoplo were present. Our lilair comi ty friends turned out in tine stylo. The Newry Band was present and discoursed most eloquent music. Speeches were made by M. A. Points, John Palmer and B. F. Meyers.—On Monday evening a largo Democratic meeting was held at Lafayetteville and on Tuesday evening at Willow Grove. We havo not the room for tho list of officers of theso meetings. If you want another Draft, vote for Curtin ! If you want to have more Taxation, vote for Cfirtin! If you want to have the negroes set free, vote for Curtin !

If you want to have the Union restored, vote for Woodward ! If you wmit to have your rights as citizens, vote for Woodward! If yon want to have your state protected agiihst invasion, vote for Wuodwaril! Democratic Mass Meetings! Grand Popular Outpourings! The Democracy Aroused! The two Mass Meetings of the Democracy of Bedford county, advertised to be held respective ly at Bloody Run and Ryan's siore, the former on Wednesday evcuing, Sept. 30tli, and the lat ter on Thursday, Oct. 1, came oft' at the times appointed and were the largest meetings of the : kind ever held in this county, outside of Bed ford Borough. The meeting at Bloody Run j numbered about 1000 persons, according to tho 1 estimate of tho best judges, being about four j times the number present at the Abolition meet-1 ing at tho same place, notwithstanding the fact that Bloody Run is the centre of what was here tofore the stronghold of the enemy. GEORGrE BAUGIIMAN, Esq., of West Providence, pre sided, assisted by a largo number of Vice Pres idents and Secretaries. Speeches were made by Col. Jos. VV. Tate, Capt. George F. Baer (who distinguished himself in the battles of Freder icksburg and Chaneellorsville.) Valentitae Hay, Esq., of the Somerset Democrat, B. F. Meyers, 31. A. Points and John Palmer, Esq'*. The speakers were frequently interrupted with rounds of applause. The meeting was held immediate ly in front of the residence of Col. S. B. Tate, where a fino stand, beautifully decorated, Lad been erected during the clay, by the gallant and fearless Democrats of Bloody Run. Largo del egations were present from Bedford borough, Bedford township, Coleraiti, .Snake Spring, the two Providences and other districts. Tho meet ing adjourned at a late hour, amid great enthu siasm. AT F TAN'S. A bright and glorious day for the Democra cy, was Thursday, Oct. 1. On that day from 1200 to 1500 Democrats met together at Fy an's Store, Juniata township. Delegation after delegation came pouring in, until the ground se lected for the meeting, was literally swarming with people. The Schellsburg delegation was quite a tine ona, and when that from Bedford united with it, the scene was truly splendid.— This meeting was presided over by DANIEL W-EYAND, Esq., of Somerset, supported by a long list of Vice Presidents and Secretaries from Bedford and Somerset counties. Our memoran dum of the Officers has becu mislaid and we are, therefore, unable to give the list. James Cur boy, sr., was Yico President for Bedford Bor ough. Speeches were made by John Palmer, .Esq., lion. A. 11. Cotfroth, 15. F. Meyers, Col. Joseph YV. Tate and Valentine Hay, Esq. The speech of Gen. Coffroth was truly able and was received with repeated shouts of applauso. The speeches of Messrs. Palmer, Tate and Hay wore also fine efforts, and the portion of our friend Hay's speech delivered in the German, was es pecially well received. Our amiable friend, L. T. j.->„ —_ iu „e ti.o r>~ mocracy present on this occasion, for his gener ous hospitality and kindness. That glorious corps of musicians, tho Berlin Brass Band, were also present, discoursing most charming music, for which they are entitled to tho thanks of the Democracy. As for the Democratic ladies who graced the occasion with their presence, we can only say, their firmness and fearlessness in giv ing countenance to the great cause of their fa thers, husbands and brothers, will yet have its good effect. God bless them forever! BUENA VISTA. • According to previous announcement the Dem ocrats of Juniata and surrounding townships assembled at Buenu Vista, on Thursday even ing, Oct.. 1. PETER IIILLEGASS, sr., was President, Lewis Straney, Jacob Adams, Alfred Miller, Michael Iliilogass, Crouse Long and John Kisling, Vice Presidents, and Albert Ly nn, George Bridge, Wm.

I<\ Meyers and John Pal mer, of Bedford. This meeting was very large, about 700 persons being in attendance, and the enthusiasm was intense. After the meeting, tho speakers and a largo party of Democrats wore entertained at tho homo of that prince of good fellows, Wm. Keyser, Esq., whose hospi tality will long he remembered by tho delegation from Bedford. The Benin Band was also pres ent at this meeting, and culivoiied tho occasion with its soul-stirring straiijs. SCIIELLSBURG. On Saturday hist, the Democracy of Schclls burg and vicinity had a grand rally. Not in tended for a mass meeting, yet the people would ■ have it such, upwards <<f 200 being in attend ance. . A finodelegation/eanic in from St. Clair, with music and flags, t'ho meeting was presi ded over by WM. ROCK, assisted by Jacob Dull, Peter Wincgardaer, Solomon Shrader, Daniel Horn, Feter Dewalt and Cornelius Whet stone, as Vice l'residents, and A. E. Schell, Samuel W. Miller, Esq., and W. J.

Black, ®q., on Wednesday, Septem ber 30th, The mleting was addressed by John Palmer, Esq., and B. F. Meyers. We owe our East Providence friends an apology for not be ing able to publisi the names of the officers of their utceting, c.spur typos have mislaid the list. Our friend Black will please accept our thanks for his kind attentions. Go to tie Foils Early! "Tho (Ticket, The Whole Ticket, and Hothing hut the Ticket." A SOLID SHOT THIS TIME. Ai'fur cursing and abusing the Democrats us "Coop 'heads" and "Traitors" tho abolitionists a; new busy begging Democratic votes for their candidates. There is not a Democrat in tho county who has not been stigmatized as a "Se cessionist," a "Copperhead" or a "Tory," and t he Abolitionists will liud out on the 2d Tuesday of October that this fact will bo remembered. Democrats can't 'split' nor 'scratch' this time, to accommodate men who want them hanged- , Every true Democrat in Bedford county wilt lire a SOLID SHOT—a whole, pure, unadul terated, unscratehed ticket—at his Abolition foe, at the nest election. Hark that! to the Polls Early! HAY'S HILL, Oct. 2, 18G3. FttiKSD MEYERS: I have concluded to give you a few sfc-ay lines iu relation to the grand (!) Abolition gath ering which Davy Over was to have addressed yesterday at Fairview. Davy was no doubt in buoyant spirits, thinking of tiio immense gath ering of citizens he would have under the sound of his voice to listen to his eloquence in this stronghold of Abolitionism. At the hour ap pointed for tho meeting, tho delegations began to arrive, each delegation was composed of .1 1 sing I': MM, ar.d ere long there were present seven 1 Abolitionisms and one Democrat. Davy thought i tho tissc-.ablage too small and too much scatter ed for him to waste his precious breath in spcak , met (o so few, and the Abolitionists sneaked hack I Without hearing any of Davy's eloquence. Poor | Davy 1 there ho sat by tho Liitle King of the II La bor, who was trying to console him by tell ; ing him that they would bo out on the day of I election, wringing his hands aad looking to soo 1 the masses gathering, but they wore not visible; I then turning his head downward, evidently sur veying those infernal regions, where, ero long, he no doubt expects to join the rest of his polit ical friends in sirring praises to Father Abe. 'The Little King appeared anxious tohavo some I advice from Davy, if his Abolition friends fail ed, as a great many of them will, to bo present on the day of election, how lie coiiH rest fold two tickets together to make up tho deficiency of absent Republicans, without being detected again by tho Inspector. This meeting was a sad affair to soma of those sapient gentlemen in | this township, who have heretofore led tiiemae i sos by falsehood and deception, but which they I can do no longer, as tho decreased majority | which East Providence will give sluddy Andy, ! will abundantly show. Yours, truly, A. | "THE SOLDIERS' FRIEND.'', i Grandmother [Andy G.l Curtin Saving the State Oapitol I "Halloa! Seymour and Parker! you nin't Copperheads any more ! Hurry, for God's sake, hurry up with your Militia! Lee's going to drive mo out of house and homo ! 00-00-00-oo! What I shall I do! Where shall I go? Hurry Seymour, | hurry Parker Is Gurtin a Baron and the Soldiers his Serfs? "liemoraber, loyal men, that in two years nearly two hundred thousand men, to aid in crushing a wicked and causeless rebellion, were furnished froiu Pennsylvania by Andrew G. Curtin!" We dip the above from that v ile Abolition sheet, the Harrisburg Telegraph. We had al ways supposed that all the soldiers of Pennsyl vania, exoept those who were drafted, had vol unteered. But, according to the Harrisburg Telegraph, the Pennsylvania soldiers did not vol unteer at all, but were "furnished by Andrew G. Curtin" —pretty much as an ancient English Huron used to furnish his King with a certain number of vassals, in tide of war, or as a drover supplies a butcher with so many head of cattle, to be slaughtered. Curtin is a great man, truly. He seems to think that the soldiers who liavo gone to the war from this State are I his property—his slaves—and that he is entitled to the credit of having "furnished" them to the Government, while they aro denied all credit whatever. Indeed, his own heartless words, uttered oil the bloody field of Gettysburg, after tho battles, show tnat ho regards the soldiers as no better than ''food for powder," and that tho killing and wounding of several regiments .of them is a small matter. After the terrible bat tle at Gettysburg, Andrew G. Curtin rode o vor tho bloody field, and hearing a wounded officer exclaim, -'thisJs an awful slaughtor of l'ennsylvanians," ho flippantly remarked, "it matters little, there tiro plenty more to take their places." The thousands of widows and orphans in Pennsylvania, whose protectors \ve?e slaughtered in that fearful fight, will cherish in bitter remembrance tho heartless uttcraneo f him who now shamelessly uspiros to tiic title of "the soldier's feiend !!" , It ia not often that we come in contact with an nrticlc that we feel justified in recommending to our numerous roadors, but the artiolo of Fam ily Dye.
