Able speeches by ll'mi. Jf. Hall, &</., Hon. .John Scott, of HttnUnffdon, and Hon. John Cessna. According to time honored custom the Re publicans of Bedford County assembled in mass meeting at the Court House on Tues day evening. Though no more than the or dinary notice of a court week meeting had been given, a large delegation from Bloody Run made its appearance about 5 o'clock and was met and escorted through the town by tbe Bedford Silver Cornet Band. The pro cession, consisting of abont twenty or twenty five wagons and carriages with the stars and stripes flying and accompanied with music made a fine display and was in striking con trast with the meagre and solemn cortege of the Democracy the evening before. At the hour of meeting the Court House was filled to overflowing and hundreds could not gain admission. The meeting was called to order by the Chairman of the County Commitec, J. W. Lingenfelter Esq., and the following officers were appointed : PRESIDENT: JASON HANKS, of Bloody Run. VICE PRESIDENTS : . Jacob Bittineer, Colerain. Jaqpb B. Baker, Snake Spring, A. J. Wigton, Broadtop, Jacob Barndoiiar, Bloody Run, Daniel Sams, West Providence, Wm. Lysinger, East Providence, James Fink, Hopewell, Wm.

Gracy, Wm. 11. Whisel, Capt. Wm. Hafer, Capt. John Eiehelberger, Wm. Kirk, Martin D. Barn dollar, Lieut. W. W. Sparks, Dr. B. F. Harry. On motion the followin gentlemen were appointed a COMMITTEE OS RESOLUTIONS: M. A. Points, Esq., Chairman': B. R. Ash com. J. B. Williams, John F. Lowry, John J. Wolf, Jr., Joseph H. Griffith. Charles L. Buck, Joseph C. Long, George W. Figard. For the better accommodation of the im mense audience, and that all might have au opportunity of hearing, the meeting then ad journed to the Bquare in front of the Court house. The meeting was then addressed in a brief but neat and telling speech by W. M. Hall Esq. Hon. John Scott of Huntingdon was then introduced and in an eloquent speech of an hour and a half held the im mense audience spelt bound. His expose of the hypocrisy and rascality of the New York platform could not tail to convince the un prejudiced mind, that the New York conven tion was the creature of, and managed entirely for the benefit of the late rebels. The decep tive, dishonest and unconstitutional charac ter of the proposition to tax government bonds was conclusively shown from the most incontrovertible authority, and the shallow sophistry of Copperhead speeches and plat forms most effectually exposed. But time and space forbid the enumeration of the many happy bits and telling points made by the eloquent speaker, suffice it to say that it has seldom been our good fortune to listen to so cogent, logical, argumentativeand yet eloque n a speech. This was Mr. Scott's first appear ance among as as a political speaker, but the highly favorable impression be has made leads us to hope that we may be favored with his presence frequently hereafter. At the elose of Mr. Scott's speech the Chairman of the Committee on resolutions M. A. Points Esq, reported the following resolutions, which were unanimously adop ted. 1. That the Union Republicans of Bedford eounty, in mass meeting assembled, do hereby ex press their cordial approval of the platform of principles adopted at Chicago. 2. That we especially approve the doctrine that in the rebellious States, as a matter of ne cessity, superinduced by the defiant conduct of unr.pentaot rebels, the ballot, as the only safe gar.l of freedom, had to be placed in the hands of all patriotic citizens without regard to color or race, and that elsewhere the question of suffrage is one that each State is to determine for itself. 3. That, as a corollary of the foregoing prop osition, it is eminently just that representation iu Congress shall be based upon the voting popula tion. and that no State which denies the rightof suffrage to tne blacks shall be permitted to count them in the enumeration for representation. 4. That we cordially endorse the reconstruc tion acts of Congress, believing that the loyal - people of.the nation, through their representatives hare a right to declare and establish upon what terms th-.se who by fraud and force sought to de stroy the Government, shall be re-admitted to its privileges: and that the terms proposed are hon orable and fair, and unprecedented in the history of the world for liberality and magnanimity. 5. That Ulysses S. Grant and Schuyler Colfax are standard bearers worthy of the cause of high principle. That the country demands their elec tion not, as the representatives of any party in the narrow sense of that word, but as Patriots representing the loyal heart of the nation, de manding pence as the proper sequel to a bloody and costly war. t>. Tbat Gen. Geary by his integrity and abili ty, and by the high moral and patriotic character of his administration of our .State Government commands our admiration and esteem? 7. That we look with fear and trembling for the safety of free Government upon the infamous frauds perpetrated by unscrupulous partisans by means of fraudulent naturalization papers, and we call upon the next Legislature to promptly in terpose by the passage of a proper registry law. 8. That local and special Legislation has grown to be an enormous evil, and that some plan to supercede it by general laws is imperatively de manded 9. That we cordially endorse the patriotic and statesman-like course of the iiou. Simon Cameron, oar Senator in Congress, and that we approve his vote on all questions affecting important in terests. 10. That the Hon. W. H. Koontz has won our reepeet and esteem by his patriotic course in Congress, and by the faithfulness and ability with which he has devoted himself to the interests of his district. 11. That the Union Republicans of this dis trict bave done themselves bet justiee in the se lection ef Hon. John Cessna as their nominee for the next Congress. His patriotism, ability, and zeal, and his position in thcfore-frnt of the ranks of the party in this district, during the war, as well as the deadly hatred manifested towards him, by the leaders of the so-called Democrat!? party, made his nomination eminently suitable and proper, and Bedford county will show by her rote, tbat she fully appreciates this action. 12. That we endorse the State and County ticket as worthy of the entire support of every Union Republican, and we cordially approve the Crawford County system of nominating by direct vote, adopted by the last Delegate Convention, and urge upon the County Committee, and the Township Vigilance Committees, to give this matter their careful attention, so that there inay be a satisfactory and faiT election after full no tice. Hon John Cessta then followed with ooe of his usual powerful speeches, eliciting thunders of applause from the immense audi ence, as keen thrust and scathing rebuke of j treason, copperheadismand rebellion, follow jed each other in quick succession. The most unbounded enthusiasm prevailed and the crowd remained undiminished nntil after ten o'clock when the meeting adjourned with three rousing cheers for Graut, Colfax and the whole Republican ticket. BrRct.ABT.-Ou Monday night, the P. R. R. Station house at ('reason was broken into and despoiled of a number of books, a quanti ty of cigars and tobacco, and some other arti cles—the property of the news agent at tbat point. Two men were seen in the vicinity at a_ late boor of the night- under suspicious circumstances, but they made off before the fact of the burglary had been discovered, and have not since been heard from— The AUe , jjantan.

THE NORTH AHERICAN REVIEW FOR JN.Y has been on our table for some time awaiting a perusal. We always turn to its pages with pleasure, knowing that within its plain look ing cover we will be sure to find profitable as well as pleasant reading, all couched in the most chaste and elegant English, quite a de sideratum in the magazine literature of the day. A hasty glance at the present number, which completes the one huudred nd sixth volume, shows a variety of attractive articles. It opens with an appreciative article on Law rence Sterne by Adams Sherman Hill in which be defends the author of Tristram Shan dy against aome of the worst charges of his earlier critics a* J biographers. In "Meteoric Showers'' after a brief discussion of some of the most remarkable meteoric phenomena, S. Newcomb expresses the rather wild opinion, in the shape of a hope, that the scientific in vestigation of these phenomena may yet solve the problem of the origin of the Uni verse. The Religious Reform movement iu Italy is discussed in a hopeful vein by H. C. Lea. C. H. Bigbam gives an interesting his tory of "The Lumber Region of Michigan and W. D. Howells contributes a highly ap' preciative and flattering sketch of George William Curtis. "The Chicago Convention" by A. S. Hill is a racy and discriminating ar ticle in which the western members of that body come in for their full share of credit for ability as well as energy and earnestness. "Liberal Education" by John Fiske," John Hookman Frere by Chatles Elliott Norton and Dryden by James Russell L-owell com plete the biographical articles of this number and will command the attention of the scholar and literary amateur. "Commercial Immo rality and Political corruption" by E. L God kin is an article for the times and well de serves the attention of every thinking man. Moral social and political sores are fearlessly probed and some of the means of cure and reformation pointed out. A good deal of sound doctrine and practical common sense is displayed in the following bit of advice in regard to the too prevalent custom of smooth ing social intercourse by denouncing the crime and smiling upon the criminal. "No one therefore, who wants to aid the work of reform can begin better than by displaying in his walk and conversation a sincere and hearty detestation, not of corrupt practices alone, but of those whom he and others know to be engaged in them and of the newspapers which gloss over ill-deeds and defend evil doers.'' Thousands of croakers, over the wickedness and corruption of the times, in every community would do well to take, and act upon, this well-timed advice. We are heartily glad the North American is giving its attention to the discussion of the vital, practical issues of the day. There is here a wide field of usefulness, opened for the stu dent, the scholar and philanthropist and it is highly becoming that New England should lead the van.

HOHORAJH.E MESTIO*.— On account of the kindness and liberality of the people of Bloody lit"a and vicinity towards the colored l>eoplc on the occasion of their pic nic at the Run, I desire to state tbat I bave attended many pic uics, and witnessed the kindness, attention and hospitality of many communi ties; but have never seen greater respect show the people of cmr race by any commu nity than was shown ns by the visitors st our grounds, or those who came to the Star Hotel of whioh Mr. Samuel Bottomfield is the proprietor, and where we partook of a delicious supper E. Rorst. Akotheb Cori'ERUEAB FIZZLE OK RECOBU. —The Democrats used every effort last week : to secure one of their rousing meetings for Monday night. They succeeded like their I Vermont brethren at the last election. It was the most miserable failure we have ever known them to have during any court. The committee on delegations were busy for weeks past, making arrangements for a grand copperheud display. Between four and five o'clock on Monday evening, we were notified that "'Old Democracy" were rolling in. In order to get a good view of the long ralked of delegation we repaired to Pitt St. O! what a sight! enough to inspire Seymour and Blair with new energy and zeal. We presume Mr. Kimmell telt highly elated at this outpouring of the Bedford county Democrats. We pitied the Judge, for it n-nst be a sore thing for a man in his posish to see those whom be has called his constituents stand back and thus show to the world that party ties must be severed when it comes to decide the questions of the day. That false doctrines must die and that the men that uphold them can never receive the reins of the Government from the hands of the people—that they are doomed to a political death; that every hour of our exis tence proves this clearly and that as the Dem ocratic party grows older it waxes weaker Their big delegation consisted of two spring wagons, three one horse dearborns, eight voters and seventeen boys. What a grand procession! Ashamed of shemselves they passed through town quietly and ordered a halt at the Poor House. We presume that j the recruits stationed at this strong hob! were i not sufficiently equipped to join the proees sion for in a short lime they wended their ' way back in a manner that language cannot describe. Note bit of enthusiasm, no life, no noise, but long faces and sullen cooute nances which showed plainly that tbey were realizing the fact that Democracy is dying and that they must yield the ghost. We involun tarily exclaimed look out for the scull and cross hones (for we have read of the quiet lours of the Ku Klux.) The meeting was held in the Court House: the room was full, but about one third of the audience were Republicans who through cu riosity went to hear what was to be said. Judge Kimmell was the first speaker and pro ceeded in his usual way to exagerate aud fal sify, he said that he had received news from a Southern friend (he has lots of em) who said that the" negroes were sound Democrats I and were conring back to the principles of ! "ole massa' this brought three rousing cheers from the Democrats present. The Judge didn't announce his text, but we were able to deduce it when be had done. It is, "Steel pens, Gold pens, stationery and pen ! knives" merchants engaged in this line might receive some instruction in regard to the biz., we don't know his terms. The next speaker introduced was Mr. Schreiner of Lewistown, I who informed the house that he was a rene gade Republican, and proceeded with a his torical account to show how he was "fotched over." This was the most interesting part of his speech and when he had finished it, he was at the end of his string. The ''Fotch , over" anecdote of his friend Wade Hampton, may be very good, but we think if we had the : appointment of the revenue collectors we i could fotch some of our deserters back again, eh! lA.voxr; the reminiscences of the watering season just closed, the following piece of po etry, descriptive of some of the amuging | scenes that transpired at Mrs. Filler's during the month of August and showing how happily the guests pass their time, was handed to the editor by a gentleman who has just left: What are you doing war, Doctor K p? (Jetting from -'spirits" a thundering rap. Asking Planchetle to inform you why That love illumines a lady's eye, ! Or where are your friends that so latch- laughed With you as they Bedford's waters quafle-1? | Are you on the porch in this bright moonlight. Laughing and chatting with great delight With E , or with the Braces three That arc so garnished with witchery? j Or in the parlor, with wider range, ! Telling of matters wild and strange: Showing the "elephant," gloomy and strand. To those wbu the trick don't understand: Selling the "chicken" with feathers and spurs, That will crow whenever the chance tecurs: Guiding the ship from the far off sea, I Laden with "notions" from A to Z? j Showing the "menage rie" with beasts so rate, i Crfolding their history with judgment and earn; Or playing the "lawyer" with honest face And pleading a lady's cause with grace? Or giving long lectures of wonderful things That can only be seen and heard near the Springs? Presenting the "Colonel" to beauties bright, : That rival in charms the queen of night? I Instructing "Tecutnsch" in peaceful arts, Or acting some other important parts; : Or playing the "ghest" on this summer uight, | Till all the ladies are pale with fright' I Or putting the versatile "Judge" to sleep, j While by turns the audience laugh and weep : Or, in order the long programme ts vary, Asking the "mosquito missionary," To argue the claims of the people with wings Who sometimes visit at Bedford Springs? ! How B and I would like to be Mere, Breathing the cool and fragrant air, That comer from the mountains high and blue, That are misty now with the evening dew! But here we muse on the pleasures past That seem'd too bright long time to last: Then plead with the sylphs with starry eyes, ; Not to forget that their charms ice prise; And as laugh and joke and games go round, May in their hearts some regrets be found, That -re are absrnt who late were there I Breathing the same bright, balmy air ! P. F. S. LOCAL CORRESPONDENCE. Sunday School Celebration. > NAPIER TOWSSHIP, Bedford County PN> August 29th, IR6S. / MB. Kt'iroß: —This was a great day for the young folksof the vicinity of''Bethel church." —This church is situated about six miles North West of Schellsburg—as nearly as guess work can locate it and two miles west of New Paris. It was erected by the United Breth ren two years ago. It entered into the minds of a number of the citizens of this community to give a treat to the young folks, in the form of that ladnable, institution, — a Sabbath-School celebration, as a reward for the attention, and industry of the Scholars. Though Sabbath School celebrations are not so rare that they should receive publicity, yet the Sabbath-School is such a noble in. stitution, and productive of so much good, that we think it deserves more attention, and should receive more notice by the Press than it does. This fault of course, is not with the Editors, but with the citizens, who should pay more attention to the local affairs of their respective communities. About 9 A. M. upon all the "highways'' and "byways" leading to the church conld be seen a number of blooming boys and girls from the little lad and lassie ot five or six summers, to the bnxom yotith of "sweet sixteen;" all tripping, with light hearts, to the Sabbath-School celebration.', A more beautiful sight cannot be contemplated than the innocence and cheerfulness of sucjj a throng of children, who from Sabbath to Sabbath meet to receive moral instruction, assembling for the purpose of celebrating that glorious institution found by Robert liaikes, for the welfare of tbe poor children of Gloucester, which has since become worldwide. Children, tbe personification of purity and innocence, their hearts untainted by the vanities and vices of tbe world, con stitute the soul of society. At 10 o'clock the school formed in classes, inside tbe church, aud marched to a beautiful grove on the farm of Mr. H. Lansou, near tbe church, 'lite assembly beiag properly disposed of here, Rev. N. H. Skyles. the officiating clergyman, read a hymn which was sung by the audience, making the forest vocal with the melody, telling us that 'The groves were God's first temples" a fervent and earnest petition was made then to the Throne of Grace. The minister then delivered an appropriate address, portraying the beauties and benefitsof the Sabbath School, tbe influence it wields upon society, and the aid it affords the church, in eloquent lan guage , yet at the same time so plain and simple that the children could understand it. 1 bis is the secret of success in addressing the young folks: too often public speakers, in addressing Sabbath-Schools, and day-schools use language beyond the comprehension of those for whose especial benefit tbey are speaking. During the discourse, whilst the minister was relating some affecting incident we could see that the eloquence of his tongue had touched the heart of some of his atten tive little listeners, by the impressive tear drop dimming the bright eye. After the speaker concluded the scholars were formed around the tables, which were spread with the choicest collection of food that the best skill in the science of cooking coold produce; lhanks, were returned to the Great Donor on high and the children proceeded to do honor to the viands as they hsd heretofore done to the school. \\ hen the sharpened appetites of the little folks were appeased, the tables were again loaded down, and a general invi tation given to all present to partake of the bouniiful repast. Special praise is due the Superintendent and other officer" of the school for the zeal manifested on this occa sion, and also to the "committee of arrange ments" for the praiseworthy manner in which their task was performed. The officers of the school are Herbert Otto, Superintendent, G. N, Ellis, Secretary, and Joseph Black, jr., Librarian. Truly Yours, SPECTATOR. Mas. PARTINGTON - INSULTED.— The White Mountains of New Hampshire are evidently a great institution—very high, heavy frosts, beautiful view, four dollar dinners. But the practical eye of a certain renowned Drake saw those smooth faced rocks, and thereupon adorned and variegated the bridle path to the Tip-top House with his familiar S. T. —lW>o —X. PI-ABTATIOS BITTERS. This raised the ire of the Mrs. Partingtons composing the Legislature of the Granite State, who got their wise heads together, outlawed Dr. Drake, and made it a penal offense to ply the artistic brush on their beloved hills. Ver ily, the fine arts are at a discount in New Hampshire. Query.—Did Drake pay them I for this splendid advertisement?
