BE CAREITL.—We understand the Registry
list 3 posted at the places of election in some
districts have been torn down and carried of
by some ignorant or evil disposed parties.
There is a heavy penalty inflicted for this of
fense which shontd be bom in mind.
V. E would call the attention of our reader
to the advertisement of "Leasare Hours'
which will be found in another column. Itn
a very popular magazine, published by

WK cannot understand why people should
any longer buy the miserable preparations
advertised as hair restorers, when the Alisma
which is really the finest article for the hair
in use, can be procured tor so reasonable a
price as one dollar a bottle.
Prominent over all other medicines is Sew

ABE Yor REGISTERED ?—Let every Repub

Don't depend upon any one else, but go tc
the Asses-or yourself, and go at once, so lha<
there may be no mistake about it Natural
ized citizens must present their certificates
thereof to the Assessor when applying fo:
registration, unless they have been voters in
the district for five consecutive years.
COMMEXDABI.E ENTERPRISE.—Mr. D. W
Crissman of Pieasantviile. during the present
summer purchased a new steam engine and
connected it with his "flouring tniil so as to
enable him to use it in emergencies. During
the recent dry term, the forethought and en
enterprise of Mr. Crissman were demonstra
ted in the fact that be was able to keep his
mill in operaticn daring all the dry weather
to the great advantage not only of himself but
whole community around Pieasantviile.
THE Bedford Springs were closed for ths
season on Tuesday last. The season La
been an average one. A few visitors still re
main in the town. A railroad to Bedforc
would quad ruple the number of visitors in i
single year. There is one already projects
and we an - trying bard to raise the funds t<
put it und ;r contract. Let the proprietors o
the Spring s give it their hearty sappc-rt and
liberal pecuniary aid and Bedford Springs wil
soon be nabled to assume its proper positiot
as the first watering place in the Union.
THAI.ES.—Our kind patrons, who called
upon us during Court week and renewed tbeii
subscriptions and cheered the heart of the
printer by banding over a few greenbacks
will accept onr thanks. We are only sorrj
we have not the pleasure of thanking a grea

THE Methodists of Bedford charge have ta
ken active measures to raise subscriptions fo
the erection of a new church in this place
Be are g'ad to see a move in this direction
Though the old edifice was a credit to th<
Methodists of ancient days, it is a very poo;
monument of honor to the people or tin
Lord, in this progressive age. In winter it i:
a sacrifice of comfort to sit in the buildi.-.j
during hours of service, as it is almost im
possible to make it comfortably warm, aod it
windy weather the smoke from the stoves ant

The cracked walls, faded curtains and paper
and the perforated roof call in load tones foi
a new building. We hope the mcmbershi|
will hearken unto the call, and erect achurci
which will be an honor to themselves and ai
ornament to the town.

RAILROAD MEETlNG.— Bedford must have a
Railroad. —A large number of the citizens of
Bedford pursuant to notice given, assembled
in the Court House, on Thursday evening,
the l!>tb inst., for the purpose of making pre
liminary arrangements for the holding o(
a railroad meeting daring the term of a spe
cial Court, commencing on the 27th inst., at
which time one or several propositions for
the construction ola railroad to this point, it
is expected, will be submitted.
The meeting was called to order by the
selection of Hon. GEORGE W. Grate as Chair
man, aud J. 11. Ihirborrow as Secretary.
The object of the meeting was stated at
length by Hon. ALEXANDER KIXO, who
stated in the course ol his remarks, that he
had an interview a week or two since with
Col. James Worrall, President of the South
Pennsylvania Railroad Company : a company
chartered by the Legislature of Pennsylvania
in the year 1804, to run from flarrisburg.
through Bedford and other counties, to points
ir. Western Pennsylvania, who proposed to
assist us in the construction of our road from
Bedford to Bridgeport, provided, that the
citizens of this county were willing to avail
themselves of the charter of the South Penn
sylvania Company, and that at the meeting
coutemplated this proposition would, in all
probability, be submitted for the approval of
those who are subscribers to the stock of the
Bedford and Bridgeport Railroad. Should
our people conclude to accept this proposi
tion, they will be asked to invest stock in the
beginning of an independent line of railroad
connecting from Harrisburg west by the
Pittsburgh and Connellsvilie Railroad with
Pittsburgh, and the Hempfield with Wheeling,
thus forming a great through line to the
Great West, the stock of which cannot fail
to become as valuable as that of any. of the
great trunk lines.
1 j At the conclusion of his remarks, Juged King
! moved that a committee of five be appointed
forthe purpose ot makingarrangements for the
I holding ot a meeting during the term of our
I special court, and subsequent meetings, if
p necessary: and that the committee correspond
with Col. James Worrall and secure his at
tendance at the time of holding the meeting
stated, which was unanimously adopted.
The Chair appointed Hon. Alexander King.
Joha Lutz Esq., Hon. Samuel L. Russell.
Jacob Reed, and Thomas M. Lynch, _uiu com
i i mittee.
Brief speeches were then made by J. R.
Durborrow, John Lutz, and Samuel Lysing
er, Esqs.
On motion, the meeting adjourned to meet
at the call of the committee. The feeling
manifested was of a much better order than
i we have heretofore witnessed at Bedford rail
road meetings. Everybody admits the feasi
bility of the proposition.
The Republican Silver Band enlivened the
occasion with choice music, for which they
have the thanks of the meeting.
George W. Gump, Pres't.
J. R. DritiiOßKOw, Sec'y.

In addition to the above there are $5,000
or $6,000 subscribed by parties in the neigh
borhood of Black s Tannery, whose names
w% have not been able to obta ; n. Thus it
•till be seen that there are about $30,000 al
ready subscribed. We have no hesitation in
aying that $20,000 more will secure us a
. railroad. Let it be subscribed promptly, what
-1 -ver course may be adopted. With $50,000 we
j can secure either the Bedford and Bridge
| port, or- extension of the Huntingdon and
Broadtop; or perhaps both upon the charter
i of the South Pennsylvania as above proposed,
at the option of the stockholders. Now is
j : be time to move. Let there be a full at
Tendance, of ail who wish to secure an early
; completion of our railroad, at the next meet
ing.
South Pexsstc.va.vu Railroad.— The
citizens of Bedford county are respectfully
requested to meet at the Court House in Bed
ford, on Wed.vesday evev.wg, 20th Sept.,
at 7 o'clock, to subscribe stock in the books
of the South Pennsylvania Railroad Company.
I'. S. We have an assurance from Eastern
capitalists that if we can raise Five Hundred
I bousand Dollars local subscription on the
line of the road, that the road will be built.
It is a through road from Harrisburg to the
ConoelUville Road. Josuu EsrY,
Agent to receive subscriptions for stock.
AT THE QILAKTER SESSIONS, Sept. Term,
the following are among the camber ot con
victs:
Zigler Cam, indicted for the larceny of a
horse and riding saddle. The defence proved
his mind to be in a rather ansound condition
prior to and at the time he committed the
deed. He was sent to the House of Refuge
in Allegheny county, to be clothed, maintain
ed and instructed at the expense of Bedford
county. The boy is about sixteen years old.
Robert Barnes, indicted for larceny of bags
and tools, was convicted and sentenced to
hard work in the Western Penitentiary for
three years. This is the third or fourth time
he has been admitted as a member of that in
stitution, but we have no doubt this trip will
tame him completely. A short time before
the Sheriff started with the prisoners, Barnes
attempted to make his escape. When the
dl.-bes used by the prisoners at their meals
were returned to the Sheriff"s kitchen, one
knife was missing, and this excited the sus
picion of the Sheriff, who immediately went
in search of it. He,found it in Barnes' pos
session, and before it was secured, quite a
lively scuffle ensued between them, in which
Barnes and the other prisoners would have
made good their escape, had it not been for
the intervention of the Sheriff's wile and sev
eral other ladies belonging to the house, who
anticipating the movement locked the outer
doors. Nobody seriously hurt.
John O'Contier and Patrick Glliget indict
ed for stealing clothing from Peter F. Hi He
gass were convicted and sentenced to the Pen
itentiary for three years.
Abm. Davis was convicted on two indict
ments —one for stealing cattle from John
Shoemaker and the other for stealing a horse
from George Smith. On the first he was
sentenced three years and on the second one
year (making four! to hard labor in the West
ern Penitentiary.
On Monday morning last the Sheriff started
to Pittsburgh in charge of the prisoners.
Let this be a warning.
THE Turnpike Bridge, ia thenarrcnvs which
! tell down of its own weight last Tuesday a
j week, still lies in the river a complete
wreck. Nothing has yet been done toward its
j removal or the erection of a new one. It be
: longs to the Bedford and Chambersbnrg
j Turnpike Company whose franchises will be
f forfeited if the bridge is not promptly rebuilt.
Mr. T. B. Kennedy, President of the board of
Directors, was here a few days ago to look
I after the matter and after examining into the
vase went to Philadelphia to ascertain the
i cost of an iron bridge. We understand that
| the company asks the aid of the county to
the amount of $l,OOO in rebuilding the bridge.
There are nearly $2,000 a year taken in for
tolls at this bridge, nearly all being on travel
betwen Bedford and Mt. Dallas: we hardly
think it reasonable for the county to sub
scribe $l,OOO to build a bridge for the use of
which our citizens are afterward to be taxed
nearly $2,000 per year. As to the use of the
road from here to Mt. Dallas one ought
rather to be paid than to pay for travelling
over it. It is impossible yet to tell what will
be done, but we will keep our readers posted
on the matter as things progress.
HEAD! READ! READ!—THE IKQPJREB
FOR THE CAMPAIGN. —An important campaign
is before us in which are to be elected a Gov
ernor, a Judge of the Supreme court, a State
Senator and two members of the Legislature,
a Sheriff and Prothonatory beside the regular
county ticket. The best interests of our
Stav demand a continuation of Republican
rule and if there is ever to be any economy in
the expenditure of the hard earned money of
the tax payers of Bedford county it can only
come through a change from Democratic to
Republican management. That our people
may be informed npon these matters and ena
bled to vote intelligently at the coming elec- .
tion. we wiil furnish the INQITKER at tae fol
lowing rates for the campaign :
One copy $0 40cts !
hive copies.— 1 7-5
Ten copies 8 00
Twenty copies 6 00
Let the active working men of the party go
to work at once and get up clubs at every
Post Office in the county and rlace the IN
QUIRER in the bands not only of every Repub- j
Lean but of every doubtful voter. It will do
more good than days or weeks of talking and
electioneering jus; before the election. Cop
erheadism aims a death blow at the industrial
inv-rests of our State and must be defeated.
Copperhead mismanagement of the finances
of Bedford county has loaded us with debt
and tax3 from which there is no hope of de
liverance except in the election of Republic
an county officers. Now is the time to ac
complish our deliverance. Let no time be
10-t. Get up your clubs and send in your
subscriptions at once. Address JOHN Lnz,
