"Light, more light!" is the start ling cry of the honest people groping in thodarkness of Radicalism. "Light, more light!" shouts the groaning tax payer, bending under the load which a Radical Congress has heaped upon him. "Light, more light!" is the pleading cry that comes to us from those who earnestly seek a remedy for the disease that is tugging at the vi tals of the nation. Look and ye shall •ee! Read and ye shall know! The BEDFORD GAZETTE, for the Presi dential Campaign, will be a complete com pendi u m of pol itical news, speeches, documents and every thing that per tains to a political canvass in the col umns of a weekly newspaper.

This is the plan upon which our opponents have acted for years, and it is about time that Democrats do something of the same sort. NOW, GO T(> WORK and put your Democratic newspaper into (he hands o/ every Republican who nil/ read. Tf you will do this you will accomplish -more g<ad in-six months than you will by any other means in six years. Democratic politicians, throughout the county, are enabled, by the above low terms, to circulate Dem ocratic newspapers at a very small cost. We appeal to them to see to get ting up clubs, and to see to it in time. .Vote is the time to sow the seed. Af ter a little while the heat of passion and prejudice will 'oeam upon the pub lic mind in all its intcn-e fierceness, and then seed-time will have passed. Friends, let us hear from you ! THE REGISTRY LAW. We publish, on our outside, a copy of the Registry Law, passed at the late session of the Legislature. This Know- Nothing gag should be thoroughly studied by every Democrat, so that he and his friends may not suffer disfran chisement under it. File it away for reference. . • .. _ - We ask people to note, 1. That under this law,- an odious dis crimination is'made ago ilist foreign born citizens. Germans, Englishmen, Welsh men, Scotchmen, who have hitherto voted the "Republican" ticket, behold how your party strikes at your citizen ship! Is such a party favorable to equal rights ? 2. That it puts every citizen who would exercise the right of suffrage, to much trouble and vexation, in atten dance upon the meeting of the board of registration, making proof of his right to vote, &e. • 3. That it changes the hour of clos ing the polls from seven to six o'clock, thus aiming to disfranchise the labor ing classes. 4. That it entails an additional ex pense of thousands of dollars upon the tax-payers, for extra services on the part of Assessors and Election officers. That it i.- in direct conflict with the Constitution of Pennsylvania, which defines the qualifications of a voter as follows: "In elections by the citizens, every white person of the age of twenty one years, having resided in this state one year, and in the election district where he offers to vote ten days immediately preceding such election, and within two years paid a state or county tax, which shall have been assessed at h ast ten days before the election, shall en joy the rights of ail elector." IM PEACH ME N'T. The "High Old Court of Impeach ment," having ruled out the evidence proposed to bo given by the President in proof of his proper and lawful in tent in attempting to remove Stanton, the defence closed their part of the ease. 11 was offered by the President's counsel to prove, by the members of I the Cabinet, that Johnson's motive in attempting the removal of Stanton, | was to bring the Tenure of Office Bill I to a judicial test, in order that the ques tion of its validity might be decided |by the proper tribunal. It was also of fered by tbeui to prove, by the same witnesses, that Stanton and the re mainder of the Cabinet advised the President that the Tenure of Office Bill is unconstitutional, and that Stan ton and Seward made the draft of the message in which the President vetoed that Bill. None of this evidence was admitted, notwithstanding the fact that Chief Justice Chase ruled it to be clear ly admissible. This action of the Sen ate shows that the President is being tried by a packed jury, incapable of giving him a fair and impartial trial. His removal seems to be a foregone conclusion. A majority of the Senate had made up their minds to convict him, before they heard any of the evi dence in the case. Their partizans openly and shamelessly proclaim that Johnson must be convicted and gotten rid of, right or wrong! They say such a course is dictated by party necessity ! They besiege those Radical Senators who have refused to commit themselves to their desperate scheme, with threats and all sorts of party appliances, in or der to force them to vote for convic tion! Expectants of office under Wade, are in the lobby, button-holing and dragooning Senators ?<> vote for conviction! Radical newspapers are hectoring Senators to compel them to vo e for conviction ! Even the pulpit (hide your faces, ye followers of the meek and lowly Nazarene) is belching forth its anathemas against Senators who are suspected of being against con viction ! 4 -nil ye this justice? Call ye this a fair and impartial trial? His tory will record it as the crowning shame of that party, which, in order to retain its leaders in office, has chang ed our form of government and now seeks to destroy the whole fabric of Re publican liberty. A few more days will end this wicked and infamous proceeding. A few more days will determine whether there is virtue enough left in the Senatorial Sodom to save it from the, fire and brimstone of the ('oming \\ rath. "If the assassination could trammel up the con sequence, and catch. With its surcease, success But, Senators, ye "But reach bloody instructions which, being taught, return To plague the inventor." NOI'TII KK.N EI.ECTIONS. There have recently been held in Georgia and North Carolina, elections to ratify the Negro Reconstruction Constitutions, and for .St ate officers and members of Congres*. These elections have lieen continued for four or five days, in order to enable the negroes to repeat their votes at different polls. They were managed on the Radical side by the agents of the Freedmen's Bureau. Notwithstanding tno disfran chisement of large numbers of the whites, the contest in each of these states, was a very close one. Many ne groes, already disgusted with Radical treachery and meanness, voted the Democratic ticket. "Dem mules" promised them by the "carpet-baggers," have not been forth-coming. At this writing it is not known whether the Negro Constitutions are ratified or not. At the elections on the Convention question, some months ago, in Georgia and North Carolina, the Radical Ne groes carried those States by large ma jorities, the latter by 50,000. Now, they are close. Negro Suffrage will be the death of Radicalism yet. A XEW SECRET ABY OF WAR. The President, on Friday last, with drew the nomination of Thomas Ew ing, as Secretary of War, and appoin ted Gen. John M. Sehofield, the pre sent commander ol'the Virginia, Mil itary District. Sehofield is a '•Repub lican," and by this appointment the President shows that his reasons for desiring Stanton's removal, are perso nal and not political. Is Johnson, then, to he removed for trying to put out one "Republican" in order that another may take his place? Sehofield is one ofthe great Union commanders; yet, we venture to predict, that the Senate will not confirm him. '•PICKJ.I i'*" is on the rampp.se a gain. He screeched sit the Radical meeting on Tuesday night. For want of argument, he uttered a wilful and deliierate falsehood in regard to the editor of this paper. We shall attend to his case upon the stump. He once prosecuted us for libel, (on tiie ground that we had charged him with certain crimes,) and didn't make much. The next time we take the stump, we shall ffivp hpii a oh a nop to sue us for slander. Great Popular Demonstration! Till: DEMOCRATS IV COUNCIL! Sppet-beft, Resolution*, ie. Pursuant to previous notice a large number of the Democrats and Conser vative people of Bedford county, assem bled in the Court House, iii Bedford, on Monday evening last, 27th ult. On motion, JOHN* C. FIGARO, ESQ., of j Broad Top, was appointed President, i assisted by the following named gentle ; men as Vice Presidents: Hon. \V . T. j Daugherty, Isaac E. Reighard, Geo. ! Elder, Esq., David Karns, "W. L. Weeks, Col. F. I>. Beegle, Hon. Jos. B. Noble, Isaac Kensinger, Esq., Jacob Beck ley, Esq., Tbos. Fisher, Caselton Ake, \Y. >J. Pearson, Esq., James I Cessna, Esq., J. B. Anderson, Esq., H. P. Dield,George Bauglunan, David Ilowsare, Daniel Fletcher, Henry Fluke, Esq., Caspar St roup, James C. Devore, Esq., John Koons, and John B. Fluke, Esq., and by J. M. Gephart, J. M. Van horn, Esq., Henry W. Reed, Jacob Kensinger and Richard Sill, as Secretaries. The meeting was then addressed by B. F. MEYERS and (). E. SHANNON, ESQS., who discussed the issues before the people, at length, and handled with out gloves, the revolutionary and des perate men who lead the Radical par ty. Hie meeting was enlivened by choice music discoursed by the Democratic Brass Band, to which the people of the county are indebted for frequent and very fine musical entertainments. The following resolutions were unan imously adopted and the meeting ad journed with three cheers for the Con stitution and the Union, and three more for General \V. S. Hancock, the man who saved Useless Grant at the Wilderness: Jleso'ved, By the Democrats of Bed ford county, in Mass Meeting assem bled, that in this momentous crisis in public affairs, when the Constitution is set at naught, when tho Executive and .Judicial branches of the Govern ment are made subservient to a plot ting faction in the legislative branch, and when that faction is declared to be "a law unto itself," it behooves each and every citizen to reflect with calm ness, and decide with patriotic solici tude, upon a proper remedy for the evils which beset us. Resolved, That the impeachment and threatened removal of the President of the United States, for no other alleged reasons than that he attempted to re move an odious member of his Cabi net, and that he exercised the privilege of publicly expressing his opinions on great political issues," privileges exer cised by the best of presidents, is an outrage tin parallel led in the history of any civilized country, and will cover the nation with unutterable and eter nal shame. Resolved , That we, the people, plain ly perceive the motives of the men who are plotting to remove the President, to be simply greed for the spoils of office and the sore necessity of a reek less party which is determined to keep itself in power, though it be at the cost of the honor, the peace and the liberty of the people, but which is doomed to disaster and defeat, even by its own desperate and despicable meas ures to save itself from annihilation. The assassination ol Lincoln was the deed of a misguided enthusiast; the impeachment of Johnson is the delib erate and malicious act of corrupt and unscrupulous politicians. The Im peachers are assassins actuated by malice prepense. Resolved , That we call upon the peo ple to rebuke the greediness for office which seeks to remove the lawful Exec utive, which throttles the Supreme Court by partizan legislation, which forces Negroes to vote at the point of the bayonet, which disfranchises thous ands of intelligent White Americans, and which stops at 110 outrage upon law, liberty, decency, or right, to satis fy its insatiable and beastly lust. ' Resolved , That we are in favor of reducing the Army and Navy to a peace establishment, thereby saving at least one hundred millions of dollars to the Government, annually , and that we are, furthermore, in favor of the dis continuance of the National Loafing School for Southern Negro Lazzaroni, commonly called the Freedmen's Bu reau, thus saving millions more of the people's taxes, and at the same time causing the idle blacks to earn their bread and to-assist in re-building the wasted prosperity of the South. Resolved , That we are in favor of equal taxation of all species of proper ty, that we are opposed to all legisla tion lor the benefit of a class, at the ex pense of the many, that we believe the financial system which enables the Na tional Banks to draw compound inter est upon their bonds, to be wrong and dangerous in principle, and we are anxious that the Revenue laws be so modified that the burdens of Govern ment shall be equally distributed in proportion to the wealth of individu als, and that the National Debt may be paid at the earliest possible period and in the manner least hurtful to the interests of the people. Resolved , That wo condemn and hold up to the execration of the public, the reckless and extravagant appro priations made by the late State Legis lature, attacking as they did, even the Sinking Fund of the Commonwealth, and that the thanks of the axpayers are clue to Hon. \V. .V. Wallace, and other Democratic members of the Leg islature, who, by their sleepless vigi lance, obtained a reduction in the ap propriations to the amount of three hundred thousand dollars. Resolved , That the country needs A CHANGE in its Lawgivers; Com merce cries out, from coast to coast, for A CHANGE; the Manafacturing Interest calls, with the voice of ten thousand starving operatives, for A CHANGE; the Farmer, :v he ploughs his land mortgaged for the payment of the increasing Public Debt, demands A CHANGE; the Mechanic, as he counts the cost of the necessaries of life and finds that the prices of his wares do not increase in a corresponding degree, sighs for A CHANGE;and the Labor ing Man, he "who eats his bread in the s\\*eat of his free," as he sees penury stare him in the fuee, prays from the depths of his soul, for A CHANGE! Resolved , Therefore, that all who de sire this "consummation so devoutly to be wished," A CHANGE from Rad ical Destructiveness to Constitutional Healthfulness and Soundness, are in vited to act with the Democratic or ganization, whose mission it is to re store the conn try to perfect peace and to that normal financial condition in which filone the various avocations of life can bo pursued with safety and suc cess. Resolved , That in the nominationsof Hon. Charles E. Boyle, for Auditor General, and Gen. W. H. Ent, for Surveyor General, the people of Penn sylvania are presented with candidates in every way wiydby of their suppoit. The former a civilian, trained in tlie school of honesty and tried and proved as a faithful representative of the peo ple, the latter a gallant and faithful soldier, whose name is a household word with the brave and never-to-be fargotten Pennsylvania Reserves; let us rally around these noble standard bearers and push foward to assured vietorv! OR iXT*S IXTEMI'EStA A't'E. For a year past, the press of both po litical parties, have been engaged in discussing the alleged intemperance of Gen. U. S. Grant. We have thus far studiously avoided any reference to the j subject, for we try to make it a rule not | to bring charge- against any candidate, i unless we believe them to be true, i Lately we have become Satisfied that the allegation that Grant is in the hab it of getting drunk, is, indeed, too true. The subject has been brought before the public by Grant's own political as sociates. Wendell Phillips, theavant eourier of Radicalism, lias printed the accusation of drunkenness against Grant, time after time, whilst Anna Dickinson, the Radical lectures-, has made it before a dozen audiences. We append a letter written by Wendell Phillips, copied from the Anti-Slavery Standard, of April 11, upon this sub ject : "So of Grant's intemperance. We think the evidence was sufficient lie fore. But if anything in the way of proof was lacking, P is amply supplied by a speech of Mr. Dodge, of New York, the President of the National Temperance Society, and by the letter of Mr. Senator Wilson, published in the Boston Daily Advertiser , April L Mr. Dodge has been in and assures temperance men they need have 110 fears. lie knows of the re porks of the General's recent published intoxication. At such a moment, and speaking as an officer of a temperance society, Mr. Dodge would have denied the truth of those reports if he had been able to do so. IDs omission to do that, and the evasive, general terms in which he indulges, will convince any thoughtful tetotaller that 3D'. Dodge knows and feels that he cannot deny the General's intemperance. He iias schooled himself into thinking that it does not amount to enough to peril the State, and hence, letting his party feel ing override his temperance principles, he is willing to run the risk. What we claim, is, that, before lie asks us to run the risk, he let us know the exact facts. Then we will decide whether to run it or not. Mr. Wilson's letter is even more characteristic, and therefore more eva sive. He, too, knows of the reports >1 Grant's public drunkenness on a par ticular day in last January. If we mis take not, these reports were brought more than once to his notice. In his leiter he says: "I have seen Gen. Grant in camp,'iii his office, at hisown house, and at dinner parties where liquors were freely used by others, but have never seen him drink even a glass ol wine, nor have I ever seen him when I had the slightest reason to think he was in any degree, under the influence of drink." Of course, no doubt. We can bring 10,000 people in that very city of Wash ington who never saw Grant drunk. There are 10,090,000 in the North who never saw Grant drunk. We never saw Grant drunk or sober. But Mr. Wilson knows well that the country never asked him, as a prominent teto taller, whether he had seen Grant druiik. The question was, "Sir, living in Washington, knowing the facts or easily able to know them, what are the facts as to these alleged public ex posures of your Presidential candi date?" Mr. Senator Wilson under takes to answer that question.—llisan swer is, he never saw Grant drunk. II any shrewd lawyer had, in such cir cumstances, received from a witness such an answer, he would have asked no further question ; but taken it for granted and argued to the jury, that the witness substantially admitted the drunkenness. To us no further evi dence is necessary. Knowing Henry Wilson, we see in this equivocation convincing evidence that iie cannot and dares not deny that he lias heard from trustworthy sources of this public drunken exposure of his. candidate. Mr. Wilson's course on this occasion is precisely the same he pursued a year ago, when, having originated a report 'as to the drunkenness of a Massachu setts Congressman, and afraid to meet the consequences, he equivocated him self out of the responsibility. Now, wben all that Congressman's constitu ents admit his intoxication, it is not probable that Mr. Wilson would think it worth while to sliullle. II Grant as President, should show himself in Mr. Dodge's felicitous language, "fully ca pable of filling Andy Johnson's place," drunkenness and all; or when Grant is thrown aside, because he bad been President, oris not needed for that of fice, we shall hear the absolute truth about this vice even .from Henry Wil son. Now when the temperance body need his knowledge, he obeys that same law of timid self-preservation which shocked his admirers when it carried him selfishly into the Know nothing party to save his place. We call this letter equivocation. It is a mild phrase considering the vast peril, and the value the writer professes to set on temperance. We should be am ply justified in describing it by a much stronger term. And the constant rep etition of this offense by this public servant seems almost to call for such frank description. In view of this element in his career the success of Mr. Wilson is one of the most alarming results of Democratic institutions ; sad evidence of how of ten they throw worthless men to the top.

That will do for Chi cage Grant used to live out that way. There is some talk of the Radicals changing their place of holding their National Convention, since this result in the Lake City.

ADDISON, PA., April 18, 18(58. 1 >FAK GAZETTE If anything could surprise one, acquainted with the events of the past eight years, the pa tience ol' that overburdened ass, Public, would. A few months ago, and yours truly, in common with hundreds of others, lirinly believed that the addi tion of a few more feathers, would cause it to turn and rend the cruel taskmas ters in the State and National Legisla tures, whose energies seemed to be concentrated upon increasing the bur den of public indebtedness beyond all 11ope of liquidation. The exemplary patience displayed since, has convin ced us all that there is a deeper depth, to which we must passively descend, or be rudely thrust by the Law-break ing, Constitution-destroying, and God defy ing m i screa n ts,ru 1i ng the Congress, and through it, the once free people of the United States. But the theme is not inspiriting; let us change it. The Bondholders in the East are still vigorously at work, through the aid of venal pens an I their large cor ruption fund, to force upon the Nation another Illinois prodigy, as President. The former one was distinguished for a certain species of wit and readiness at repartee. The present one is distin guished for being devoid of wit, words and ideas, and having great talent for silence. From one extreme to another. Grant, however, is reputed to be hard to beat dancing Jim Crow or executing the Double Shuffle in reg ular Broadhorn style; arrumor we are disposed to credit, as none but very good performers would undertake to execute those difficult steps on Penn sylvania Avenue, on Sunday after noons, when the Terpsiehorean critics of the Capital, would have nothing to distract their attention from the performance. That nations should liberally pay for services rendered and benefits con ferred, is conceded. Individual econo my is praiseworthy; National economy is meanness. Therefore, when A. T. Stewart, the ew York Millionaire and Bondholder, and Henry Hilton, "Chairman Ex. Com.," speak of re warding Gen. Grant's services, we ful ly agree with them, as it is right and proper that his services should be paid lor. It were a joke, indeed, if common soldiers, who only risked life, limb, and health, who for the loss of an arm or leg, should receive from a greatful and munificent Government, the sti pend of SB.OO, or $15.00 per month, and that so readily and easily that they' don't earn more than twice that sum j in drawing it, if the services and saeri- ' fices of the Illinois Heroare tube forgot ten. Let us see how matters stand. | In the year 1861, Hiram U,, or Ulysses! S. Grant was a porter in a Galena leath er store, at a salary of one dollar per day, payable every Saturday night, of tener, if the saloon keepers and land lords required it, and refused to wait. On the breaking out of the unholy re bellion, he unhesitatingly threw up his porter's situation, to accept a captaincy, sacrificed his business connection with out a sigh, and eventually condescen ded to accept a colonel's commission, with the"few paltry emoluments there to appertaining." 1 was informed by a member of his regiment, that the offi cers at one time held a meeting, asking for his dismissal from the service, on the groundsof drunkenness and incom petency. The war was fiercely waged ; battles, siege and storm succeeded each other; the eartii was sodden with gore, was drunken with human blood, but through it all Hirs n Ulysses calmly smoked on. It is not on record thai he ever went without a full meal, ever wet his feet or was deprived of a cigar dur ing all that fearful time. 'Tis true, the rftnk and file underwent suffering in every form, but watchful eyes and wil ling hands carefully guarded the mod- Crn Ulysses, and turned asideprivations, fatigue and suffering from hirnj to be borne by others, born undera less lucky aspect. And when theendwas come and Lee had surrendered, when at last the spinal eoluinn of the rebellion was fractured, there wereSherman, Thomas, ltosecranz, and hundreds of others, who had made vigorous and repeated efforts against the aforesaid vertebrae, all cast aside hv the watchful eyes and willing hands that guarded the slum bers and covered his blunders, and blew the trumpets for the modern Ulysses; and Jie alone received the praise and glory, with "the few paltry emoluments thereto appertaining." For instance, palatial residences furnished in the highest style of modern art, in Wash ington, Philadelphia, Galena and oth er places "too tedious to < numerate." Bonds,; old-bearing, of course, horses, earring! , pianos, greenbacks, an office especially created for him, with a "few paltry emoluments, &c.," say about TWENTY THOUSAND DOLLARS A YEAR FOR LIFE, Ac., Ac, Not withstanding all this, A. T. Stewart and the Bondholders, like the horse leech, are lustily bawling to the people, GIVE! GIVE! MORE! MORE. .Mid while on the Grant question, let us not forget the Old .ll<tn Imfteri/e , the disgustingly garrulous old Grant, the Biographer of Ulysses, the correspon dent of Bonner, the pet of the " Ledg er" an illustrious example of igno rance, i m pudenee and over ween i ng sel f eoneeit.
