B. F. MEYERS, EDITOR. tRIDAI / t ! OCTOBER 23, 1883.. Call and Settle. Our friends who are in arrears for subscrip tion, advertising and jqb work, are requested to come forward and settle. If you have not the money, come and settle at nny rate. We have accounts running for six years and up wards and they must be settled. Our friends will bear us out in saying that wo have never pressed them. Hence it is but right that they should show some appreciation of our leniency by promptly responding to this call. We have old debts to pay and those who owe us old debts ■iubi raise the money for us. Command settle! The Old Gaineoock Will Crow I Bedford County All Right!" The election in this county on the 13th inst., resulted in a complete and sweeping triumph of the Democratic Ticket. The Democratic gain over the vote of 1860, is upwards of 200, and this in spite of the greatest effort ever made against the Democ racy of the county. Our opponents resorted to every means possible to compass the de feat of our ticket. Money was their po tent weapon and they used it without stint, frauds of the most glaring character were committed by them in some of the districts, voters having been imported by the score and men swearing falsely for the purpose of getting a vote. Besides, the candidates on the Democratic ticket were denounced as "sympathizers with Secession," "trai tors" and "fories," and every timid Demo crat was bullied until lie consented to scratch his ticket. Notwithstanding all this, the eounty never, hut once, gave as large a majority for the Democratic ticket as at the late election. The Abolitionists have done their best and with all their fraud and false hood have met a Waterloo defeat. Demo crats of Bedford county, you have cause to be proud of the victory which you have ju3t achieved! Persevere in the good cause, look to the future with hope and confidence in the right, and still greater triumphs will crown your efforts for tho welfare of your country. Tho Result in the State. We had hoped to be able to give our read erstthe exact vote of the State, but at the present writing we are unable to state what it is. Our own opinion, from such returns as we have seen, is that Curtin is re-elected by from 10,000 to 12,000. That Judge Woodward received a majority of the legal rotes of the State, admits of no reasonable doubt. Immense frauds were committed in Allegheny, Philadelphia, and other counties. The vote of Allegheny is to be received un der protest. Notwithstanding these frauds and the free use of Government money and patronage, the Democracy have gained up wards of 20,000 votes since the last gub ernatorial election. This is truly encourag ing, and we have no doubt that by next year we will have such a solid majority as cannot be overcome by fraud and corruption or all the arts combined of the wicked men in power. By that time the traitors who ■tabbed us in the dark at the late election, will have been sent "across the lines" to the enemy, in whose lanks they can do us po harm, and thus purified, every vote gained from our opponents will be clear gain, thus united, harmonized and solidified, we ■hall make a campaign that will be irresis tible. Therefore, let Democrats be up and doing. Now is the time to work. To im prove on the lines of the poet, let us Fear no future howe'er gloomy, "Let the dead Past bury its dead i Act, act in the living Present, Heart within and God o'crheaill" Connecticut and Indiana. Whilst the Democrats have lost Ohio, Penn sylvania and lowa, they have carried Connec ticut and Indiana. Connecticut is a cloar gain ts the Democracy. Cleaned Out. Not a single Abolitionist remains in office in Bedford county. The people have "clean ed out" the offices recently filled by Gov. Curtin's appointees and have placed men of their own choice in their stead. We now have a Democratic Prothonotary, Sheriff, Associate Judges, Board of Commissioners, Poor Directors and Auditors. . The Aboli tion Jacobins commenced the game of pro scription in this county and now "their chickens have come home to roost." A Bootless Business. As an instance of the bribery and cor ruption practised by the Abolition wire pullers at the late election, a friend in St. Clair township, desires us to state that the Abolition candidate for Assembly gave a cer tain person in that township, a pair of new boots to obtain his vote for the Abolition ticket. The voter who was thus tempted, took the pair of boots and voted the Demo cratic ticket. Truly this wa3 a bootless business for Mr. Trout. He had better kept his boots and worn them himself, —he might have run better. Tho "Barnburner" Regiment. : This much slandered body of Union J troops, achieved a glorious victory on the 13th j inst. It routed the Disunion Horse-thief j Brigade, "horse, foot and dragoons." Capt. Aldstadt, "Co. Q," charged the enemy in fine style, whilst Adjutant Farquhar storm ed their works and took many prisoners. A for the Colonel of the regiment, whilst over seeing the general movements of his troops, he was coolly engaged in fishing for Trout, and the Major, being a great gormandizer, literally swallowed Bunn. How do you , like the Regiment, by this time, Mr. Wheel barrow f 63-The Administration reinforced Penn sylvania with about 20,000 soldiers, in order to gain a political victory. By doing this they so weakened Gen. Meade's army that Lee was enabled to drive it into Wash ington. How long, oh! how long, will the people endorse such diabolical trifling with the best interests of the nation 1 A Feast for "War Democrats." The Bedford Inquirer, after glorifying over the rc-oleetion of Curtin, says: "Go to work, next fall Abraham Lincoln must ho re-elected." Did the "War Democrats" who voted for Cur tin, expect to be invited to a feast like that* We rather think not. It is one thing to sop port Curtin, but quite another to rote for Lin coln. A Verdict. The Abolition Inquirer and the clique which controls it, nay, every dog in the Jacobin ken nel—Tray, Blancho and Swcctlioart—mongrel, puppy, whelp and hound —cur and terrier, bull and poodle—were let looso on us during tho late campaign, for tho purpose of compassing our defeat as the Democratic nominee for Repre sentative. The foulest nbuse, tho meanest rib aldry, the darkest, basest tricks, were resorted to by our Abolition enemies (wo can't call them opponents) to accomplish their darling purpose. Besides, at every poll in the county, they had men posted whose special business it was to in duco some timid, good-natured Democrat to scratch our name off his ticket. How utterlv they failed in this, the returns which we publish to-day fully exhibit. Especially do wo refer with pride to the endorsement which wo receiv ed in Bedford borough and township, where we and our slanderers are equally well known. This district gave Woodward 112 votes over Curtin, whilst our majority is 117, showing that even a number of men in the Inquirer's own party, were disgusted with its scurrility and incunncss. Tho same kind of effort was also mndo a gainst Cupt. Aldstadt, Mnj. Davis and Mr. Shannon. In this borough Woodward was bea ten one vote, whilst Capt. Aldstadt had 5 ma jority ; so much for tho Inquirer's barnburner stories: Mnj. Davis tied his opponent, leading Woodward one vote; so much for the intluenco of political preachers: and as for Mr. Shannon, he had £9 majority; so much for that great n do about Mr. S. "pointing his gun North."— The verdict of tho people of this neighborhood who know the men who composed tho Domo ocratie ticket, as well as their si stale re rs, is there fore, that the Bedford Inquirer nnd those who assisted its attacks upon the Democratic nomi nees, arc guilty of falsehood and unworthy rf of the confidence of tho public. ©-Owing to the illness of two of our hands, we were unable to get out our paper last week. Our subscribers will still receive their 52 num bers in the current year. ©"Ohio has gone for Brough, War Democrat, by about the same majority as Tod received two years ago. Ohio is a changeable State aud next year will again be Democratic. CiTlt is estimated that at least 20,000 sol diers were sent into this Stute pledged to vote for Curtin. Had these remained at tbeir posts, or had an equal number of Democrats been |>cr mittcd to return home, Curtin, uotwitlistanding all tbe other frauds perpetrated by his party, would have been in a minority of about 7,000 vptes. __ CON. —Why are the election returns of| Bed ford county like good cspaps' Because they make A-Bunn-dsnce!

It is our Henry, or our James, or our John, that lies with bis poor limbs at tho hospital, or dead—still, and with ghastly face—on tho battle field. Alas for the eyes that read! "He was my pretty boy, that I have sung to sleep so rainy times in ray arras!" says thepoor mother, bowing hi anguish that cannot be uttered. "He was my brave, noble but band, the father of ray little orphan children!" sobs the stricken wife. "lie was my darling brother, that I was proud of!" murmurs the sister, amid tears; and so the terrible stroke falls on the homes throughout the land. Wound- Ed and Killed!" Every name in that list is a lightning stroke to some heart, and breaks the thunder over some borne, and falls along, black shadow upon some hearthstone. CoLER Vis TOWNSHIP, Oct 11th, 1 Bd3 Mr. EDITOR: I notice aa attempted der.r.l in tire Inquirer of last week of my rfateinent concerning the Shod ly Uniforms in th. tbi. e months Service. This denial is Signed X. Y. 1 don't know what that Stands for, unless it is the whole Abolition Crew and I would like for the author to sign his right name to it, but I am confident that he is nobody but a liar, a coward and a woolly-headed Abolitionist or lie would have signed his name. I dare the cowardly scoundrel to come out and give his name. As to the Pennsylvania troops going on dress parade atJViiliamsport, Md, if X. Y. had hot been a coward, lie might have been there and seen it. lie stated iiiat I didn't belong to one party three years in succession. Well, bow can a man belong to a party three years in succession wbeu that party does.i't live that long, but is succeeded by a new party every year or two. I never voted the Democrat ticket till this fall, I intend voting it heieufter. I have follow ed the party I formerly be longedto, till it became abolitionized, aud I am "oft" now and forever hereafter. X. Y. says I came horns from the three months service with a much better suit than ever he saw me wear. As hecalls Kentucky Jean good cloth, lie must have worn blue drilling all his life. X Y. puts me down as a Copperhead because i am in favor of G. IV. Woodward. If lam a Cooperhead 1 liavo been in service and done my dm/as a Soldier for our country, but am no w.'olly headed Abolitionist like my neighbor, X. Y. who lias been staying at home like all loud tnikiiig cowards; such men as ho will soon put down this rebellion. Whenever Government sends them a ticket, they go limping along, and if not exempted, they pay their money and go home to talk about men ihnt have been in ser vice. Such is Abolition practice. X. Y. will please come out in the next week's Inquirer over his own proper name I dare him to do so. Yours truly, JACOB KEGG, 55th Penn. Vols. P. S. Mr. Inquirer also charges me with be iug a deserter from the army. I say it is a false hood. lie made a mistake. I am a deserter from the Abolition party. Ho stated that I came home some months ago on sick leave and had my time extended. If lam too sick, lam not like Mr Inquirer, too cowardly, to fight. Mr. Inquirer, go and take your turn as I did till you arecrippled, and then talk about "Copperheads," you coward. The Election. Last year's experience bad taught us that no dependence could be pluced upon the first reports of Tuesday's election, so that, although vvc had no wish to excite our friends by delusive hopes, We were not willing to concede that wo were de feated until some better evidence was furnished than tho imjicrfect returns given us on Tuesday and Wednesday. But the figures which we pub lish tnis morning show thai our gains in the country have not been suificient to overcome tho vote of Philadelphia and Allegheny, and that the State has gone for Governor CURTIS. How this result has been attained is very well under stood by the people. Nothing is more certain than that, if a fair election had been held, ludge Woodward would iiave been successful; but, in timidated by the resolute stand token by the Democratic party at the outset of the campaign, the Administration resolved to effect their object by fraud. Accordingly, fifteen or twenty thous and Ceteris men were sorted out of tho army and sent home, manufacturers were visited by an agent of the Departments and directed to use their inlluence with their operatives; and voters wero everywhere purchased like sheep in the shambles. But even with all these odds a gainst us, wc-have every reason to believe that more Democratic than Republican votes were polled on Tuesday lust. In this r > aggre gate was larger thai, ibatot !8t ,■> , i .Lroiiglt out the State it vrll he found t' •; we .avogained very largely on the vote of ' .rt year; but in man\ localities our elect on officers were openly bought up, and in every district more or less fraud was doubtless committed. Having con trol of the telegraph, it was an easy matter for our opponents to asoertain where and how much to cheat in order to manufacture the necessary majorities, and that they did this the facts in our possession forbid us to doubt. We do, there for , deliberately assert it as ourconviction that not only did the friends of Governor CIRTIN employ corrupt and dishonest means in obtaining voters, but we further say that from the evidence before us we aro fully convinced that after the polls were closed they systematically falsified the returns. Henco it is that little else than vague and contradictory rumors liavo been al lowed to come over the wires, up to the present time, though there was no reason why the vote of half the counties in the State should not have been known on Wednesday morning. These charges, we are well aware, aro of a very seri ous and sweeping character, but they are not made hastily or without good renson.— Age. DRAFT DECISION. —It has been decided by the Prov st Marshal General that men drafted, who have paid three hundred dollars without being examined, and aro subsequently examinod and t'/und entitled to exemption, can have their com ci'.,t : on money refunded. Those having substitutes in the service of MarhS, 1863, and, being drafted, have paid commutation, are en titled to have it reimbursed- And thews who, under these circumstances, have furnislied sub stitutes, are entitled to have the amount actually paid for such substitutes refunded on making u claim, and producing the proof of pnyuaeut. From the Pittsburg Post Oct. 14. The Result Yesterday, The election yesterday in the cities of Pitts burg and Allegheny, and throughout the county, so tar as wo heard from it, was one which will be remembered by the Democrats who partici pated in it as long as they live. We have heard of outrages upon the sacred right of suffrage, but never, until yesterday, did we know the ex tent to which reckless partisan oppression was capable of going. Men, having an indisputable right lo vote were prevented from doing so, while fellows, who never knew what u tax-receipt was, walked boldly to the pulls aud were receiv e 1 by leading Abolitionists with open arms. Money was scattered about in profusion, tempt ing the needy and encouraging the reckless, in short there was no appliance which money and desperation could command that was not array ed against us in yesterday's contest. The con sequence is, of course, that we are beaten lie yond our expectations. And no wondor. Ia addition to the powerful influence of money we bad to contend against camps of soldiers, hav ing no right to vote in this county, but who of course went almost unanimously for CCHTIN. At this writing we can not form an estimate of the majority against us in the county; judg ing from what returns we have in, however, it is unusually large. In relation to the result in the State we can form no idea; but judging from the extensive and extravagant reports of our opponents, we should judge that they had swept the State by a large majority. But as is generally the case, the official returns will doubtless reduce their majorities. In conclusion, if the Abolitionists have beat en us. we will submit to our defeat with the best grace in the world, with the pleasing reflec tion that if they can stand the further oppres sion of the General and State Governments so can the Democracy. "THE GOVERNMENT" WANTS Mont WAGES. The New York Independent, in a recent num ber, starts the proposition for an increase of salary for Mr. Lincoln. liy all moans. When the financial department of the government can print money by the cartload every day. why should "Old Abe" he restricted to $25,000 a year? Why, that is a mere bagatelle—a beg gar's pittance—a contractor could gair. such a sum in a day's operations. To be suro, men who have filled the Presidential office heretofore have not sought it for its perquisites—but when a great war is raging—when debt is piled moun tain high upon tho nation, it is " military ne cessity" that "the government" should have his share of the public plunder. Don't be modest, gentlemen shoddyites. How will SIOO,OOO do for his immediate and personal wants; then create a yearly stipend for "Mrs. Government" —say of $20,000 a year to keep her in scarlet cloaks, "loves of bonnets," &c., that have "nothing to wear." Then we must not forget Hob and Thod; let them not want for spending money—we cannot be too generous to this in estimable family. Why not get up a scale of salaries and incomes for them all, taking for a pattern the royal house of England? Why should not our "shoddy" court vie with that of St. James? Our debt is almost as large—we have a tax on everything—we are better than the old dynasties of Europe, for they are fetter ed with the habeas corpus ami such relics of old fogyism—they cannot conscript and drag from their homes, to fight for an idea, their poor and laboring classes, as can our "strong" govern ment—men do not grow rich in a day there fat tening and profiting by a nation's ruin and the people's misery. Oh yes ; by all means increase "the government's'' salary—it would be a fit ting and preliminary step to declaring him dic tator while the war lasted, and then making the war perpetual. Is there anything elso "Honest Abe" would like that Uncle Sam can procure for him ? To be sure, the spare change of that benevolent old uncle of ours could be profitably laid out in relieving the wnnts of soldier's families, and making the soldiers them selves more comfortable this coming winter, but then it would not show near so well.— Biidgeton Farmer. CONNECTICUT ELECTION. —A few days ago the telegraph gave us the first intimation of the Connecticut elections. Three or four towns were announced as carried by the Abolitionists, or .Republicans, or Unionists, or whatever the hybrids now call themselves.—Suddenly tho telegraph became silent. It announced no more results. It turns out that the Democrats have carried a large majority of the towns. Even the Tri bune. Bays "the Copperheads have come out pretty strong !" While the New Haven Register and Hartford Times claim a Democratic victory in the State. The former paper published a list of 115 towns, of which the Democrats carry G2 and their opponents only 52—and the Register points to it as showing "that the conservative and Democratic element is growing in strength and earnestness, in Connecticut, and that many who lmve heretofore sustained the Republican party, will follow its fortunes no longer, in ita down ward path to despotism and ruin." Last year the Republicans claimed a majority of 12 towns. Conceding that, the result shows a net Democratic gain of abopt iJO tpvnfr The Democratic Party. Lot llio.- v c that now assail the Democratic party remember always ono fact—that history has vindicated every position and justified overy important act of that party from the organiza tion of the Government down to now. Dis creet men, who anticipate a future, and do not object to the enjoyment of self-respect in time to come, better ruminate a little on this signifi cant truth. Without dunning absolute infalli bility. the Democracy have it right to dwell with satisfaction and pride upon the fact 'that their success has been uniformly the prosperity and progress of the country UJHI the increased hap piness of the people; that their cardinal princi ples have passed into laws, that their theories of self-government are the well settled convic tions of anti-monarchists all tho world over. They can therefore bear reproach with com parative indifference. They adhcrcstill to their cardinal principles and rely upon the sober sec ond thought of the people, knovriDg that their principles possess a vitality which can never be weakened either by calumny or defeat.—-d/d --wauhe Netvs. Proclamation by the President. 300,000 Volunteers Called out, OnSaturdny last the President issued th following proclamation, calling for three hundred thousand volunteers, to serve for three years.
