MOTTOES FOR THE DA Y. 1 will tuffer death before I will content or ad vita my friendt to consent to any concession or com promit. which looks like buying the privilege of taking possession of the Government to which we have n Constitutional right; because, whatever I might think of the merit of the various propositions before Congress, I should regard any concession in the face of menace as the destrnction of the Govern ment itself, and a aonsent on all hands that our sys tem shall be brought down to a level with the exiting disorganized state of affairs in Mexico. But this thing will hereafter be, as it is note, in the hands of the people ; and if they desire to call a Convention to remove any grievances complained of or to give nets uaranties for the permanence of vested rights, it to not mine to oppose. [ABRAHAM LINCOLN-] tnangurntion first ; adjustment afterward. [SALMON P. CHAB. I owe it to myet'.f, J sice it to truth, I owe it to ho eubject, to stall that no earthly power could in due* mt to rote for a specific measure for the intro duction of Slavery others it had not before existed, either South or Mifi'l if hat line. Coming as Ido from o Slave Sta/l, . is my solemn, deliberate, and well-matured de.lt'.iua'.ion that no power—no earthly power—ehiY. e:n:pel me to vote for the poe itve introduction of Slavery either south or nothr *f that line. Sir, while you reproach, and justly, too, our British ancestors for the introduction of this institution upon the continent of America, ea m , /or one, unwilling that the posterity of the pre e ,it inhabitants of California and Mew Mexico shall reproach us for doing just what we re proach Great Britain for doing to us. If the citizens of those Territories choose to establish Slaverylam for admitting them with such provisions in their Constitutions ; but then, it will be their own work, and not ours, and their posterity will have to reproach them, and not us, for forming Constitutions allowing the in* stiiuiion of Slavery to exist among them. [ HENRY CLAY. Off with their Heads. The Watchman last week published an ex tract from " the private letter of a friend who hk for some time filled a clerkship in one of tba Departments at Washington."— Wa enppase the gentleman referred to is Mr. Shngert af this plaos, who owns the Watch' man■ The correspondent grows sick at heart at the mere thought of giving up the geod fat office he has held under the Govern ment for the last sixteen years, and clutches at the least hope of remaining as a drowning man would grasp at a straw. He says : " The only hope I have of remaining, is that they oannot accommodate more than one •ut of fifty ; that the besieged will soon get tired of the annoyance, and send these hung ry, starvig applicants home. But lam not building much even upon this. To be hon- SSt about it, I do not expect to stay, as I have been a strong opponent of the present party. They cannot, however, torn all out at once ae they must retain Borne te inatruct the new ones." So this fat, slick office-bolder, that has sponged the Goyernment out of enough of money to buy a good farm, a paper, and put out a considerable sum ou interest, besides hopes to hold on while the hungry, starving applicants are sent home, These hungry, starving applicants, as he calls them, are good and true men, who battled through sun shine and storm for the success of our glori ous principles, and now that the party has triumphed, are they to be set aside and men retained in place who have done all in tboir power to defeat us ? If that is the pclicy to bo pursued by the Republican party, we have fought our last fight for it, and it has achieved its last victory. We have scores of good and true men for every offiee ; men who are fully capable, and will fill them better than any sneaking, thieving democrat that over held place under the Federal Govern ment; aßd they must be appointed. Let the robbing horde who have brought our Government to bankruptcy and ruin, be sent home to feed on their ill gotten gains, while honest and true men administer the Govern ment. But, says the Watchman correspon dent, ' They cannot turn out all at once, ae they must retain some to instruct the new snei." Instruct them to do what ? Steal, we suppose. You had better rotain Mr. Thompson a few months to teach Mr. Smith how to sxtract Indian Bonds : or perhaps it would be well to recall Mr. Flnjd to instruct Mr. Cameron bow to arm Southern rebels.— Evil communications corrupt good man ners, and God forbid that these men should fceoome tbe teachers of our young and inex perienced office holders. If they must.have iastructors let the honest old men who served under Harrison and Taylor, sod who are now living in retirement, be recalled for a few months, but for Heaven's sake don't let them fall into the hands of modern democrat ie officials. "To the victors belong the spoils, " that was Mr. Van Bureo'e motto it is good democracy, and we are in favor of adopting it as a rule to guide the present ad ministration. It is tho way they have al ways done, and surely they will not object to being done by as thoy have done to oth ers. Parties, as well as armies, must be kepi up by rewarding tba deserving. It is this, the hope of proferment, that makes the seenmon soldier fight a good fight. Our par ty has met with a signal triumph, and if we ere not to rsap tbe benefits, we will not scon htve another victory to boast of. The lead ers of our party will not suffer themselves to he set aside in ordsr to accommodate, with •ffice, corrupt men who have growed fat by sucking the life blood from their unhappy country. More than that yet, the rank and file will not stand by and sea tbe claims of their leaders ignored. Such a policy would be fatal ta our party and it must not be pur sued. Mr. Shugert must come borne, no matter bow unpleasant it may be to his feel iags to do so- Every Government official must be onsted and new and better men ap pointed to take their places. Then, and not till then, can the nation be cleansed of cor ruption, and tbe Government brought back to its original simplicity and purity. Again we repeat, off with their beads. 19* When tbo Governments of Europe hear that the Nation has surrendered its strongest Ferts inte the bands of the Rebels what impression will it produce f Why, that tbe rebels have licked the government— that's all. The Surrender of Fort Sumpter. Fcrt Sumpter ie to be surrendered—not given up—but absolutely surrendered with all its arms and amunitions of war. This humiliation will be deeply felt by the Amer' ican people, but tbere is now no alternative. That newspaper great man, Maj, Anderson, has laved behind his guns and saw the rebels erect battery after battery, until now they cover him all over. It would require 10,000 men, and 1,000 lives to reinforce Fort Surnp ter. The advantage to be gained is not worth the sacrifice. What do we want with Fort Sumpter 7 It is placed at the mouth of Charleston Harbor to protect the city, and the city being new iu the hands of the rebels it becomes useless. Little doubt now re mains that Maj. Anderson is a traitor tc his country. If so, he is tbe worst that ever liv ed. Before the inauguration all bis dispatch es informed our Government that he did not need re-inforcements and supplies—now be fore the Administration is three weeks old be is out of provisions, and asks to be re-inforo ed, or says he must surrender. The Govern ment investigates the affair, and ascertains that he cannot be re-inforced without the as sistance of an i turn ease armament which would necessarily inyolvo tbe nation in an immense expense, and result in the loss of many valuable lives. Why did Maj. Ander son permit himself to be surrounded ? When the enemy commenced erecting batteries around Fort Pickens Lieut. Slemmer notified fhem that if they did not stop he wonld fire on them, and the work was stopped. Maj. Anderson's conduct will not compare favora bly with that of Lieut. Slemmer. Again, why did Maj. Anderson allow the regulars to withdraw from the Fort as their time run out, when he had the power to re tain them in service, and when he knew that the services of every man was important. If Anderson is a traitor at all, the abandonment of Fort Moultrie was a part of tbe plot, and he has been in the employ of the South all the time we have been engaged in making him a great man. We hope be may be able to clear himself of the suspicion that now rests upon him. Time will tell what he is, and we will rot condemn him until we hear mare. New County. A bill was read in place last Satnrday, in the Legislature, to form a new county out of Centre and Clearfield ; taking Rush, Taylor, Worth and Huston, off Centre County. This we gnppose is the result of the doe trine of secession. Will go out, will you? Well you wont, see if you will, got to stay in the County, and behave well, too ; if you don't, we will call out the Fencibles, well we will. Can't secede, no you can't. Centre County as it is, one and inseperablo, now and forever. LATEX. Our latest advicss inform as that the Southern part of the County has seceded. Another despatch says that the Northern Townships are also preparing to go out.— Hurrah for secession 1 Where is Gen. Wolf, and the army ? Hare the Centre Dragoons and Warriors Mark Cavalry, gone over to the Secessionists? Wen't somebody tell us, quick ? Do the rebels intend besieging the 1 Old Fort, and seizing Potters Bank ? Hold, brother ! we'll surrender, don't shoot. Port Matilda is already in the hands of the rebel lioniets. Col. M&cmannus will, in all prob ability, march at the head of a strong force next week, to attack Uniooville, which is said to still be loyal. Benj. Rich and Dr. Blair are fortifying the town, aDd it may hold out over night. The Democratic Watchman, o( this place, has been purchased by the reb els. Great excitement prevails. Harris Township will not secede. Squire Jack, it is said, will take strong grounds against the secession movement. The Post -Master, The contest for the Pest Office at this plaoe is carried on in earnest. Since the return of Judge Hale, tbe friends of the several candi dates have been busily engaged in urging the Judge to use his influence in favor of their respective candidates- We believe the Judge has concluded to leave it to a vote of tbe people. This would be fair. Tbe Post Master comes in more direct eontact with tbe people than anv other official in the Govern ment, and a full and fair expression of tbsir preference should be bad. Tbe polls is the preper method to get this. To tba polls then sovereigns, and decide who shall reign over tht mail bags. To tbe victors belong the spoils, and none but Republicans should vote. We would suggest that the board propound the following questions to every one who is not known to have voted our party ticket.— " Did you vote for Lincoln ? " "Do you get your mail matter at Bellefonte ? " To those who have become twenty-one since the elec tion, let the following be put: " Would you bave voted for Lineoln ? " Every one who gets hie mail at this office, (if a should be allowed to vote. The following gentlemen will be candidates : Martin Stone, Delaune Grey, Wo. Tripple, Wm. Raphile, Geo. Graffias, Chas. Mcßride, Albert Am merraau, and Maj. A. B. Snyder. Why is it ? We are asked why it ia that the Northern Lecofoco leaders are so averse to having the Southern traitors " coerced" into obedicnee to the laws, aud why they are so anxious to make concessions on se large a scale as to induee these Traitors te disband and re turn to their allegiance ? The reasons are plain. Tbe Northern Locofooos for years have been in psrtnership with the Tcaitors— have participated sinoe 1650 ia tbe conspira cy to nationalize Slavery; bave had " the spoils" under two administrations mainly by the votes of these Southern conspirators; and hope by seme juggle, dignified bv the name of compromise, to get baok to the pub* lie tstalls where they have fattened. These are tbe reaeons. May they be doomf? to defeat. THEE CE3VTEE OEiaOCRAT. Latest from Washington. The last reports seem to indicate that the Cabinet will shortly recognize the indepen dence of the Southern Confederacy. We are informed that tho Administration will not receive the Southern Commissioners in their proper character. Tbey will be re ceived but the President will not see them. The abondonment of Fort Sumter ia as muoh as we can stand at one doss, so the dough faces at Washington think, and therefore they have decided not to receive the Commis sioners at present. Senator Wilson made a sharp speech in tbe Senate, in which be rebuked Mr. Doug las for his impudence in speaking for Mr. Lincoln's Administration, and plainly told him td mind his own business. No extra session of Congress will be cal led. The New Yorkers want tbe new Tariff re pealed. Tbey had better wait until they see bow it works. The appointments corns in slow.' It is te dious work. The Senate will, in all proba bility adjourn, and leave many unconfirmed. The latest Despatches say that Fort Pick ens had been attacked, and a fight occurred. The news produced great excitement at Washington. Tbe lights at Pensecola were extinguished by order of Col. Forney, the Collector, on the 7th. This is another Southern outrage, as Northern yessels cannot enter without running the risk of being wrecked. The latest news from Texas inform us that Fort Brown was surrendered on the 12tb, to the secessionists. All the Government troops are leaving Texas, and eyerylhing is in the of tbe rebels. Important Nominations. MINISTERS TO THE GREAT ruREIGN POWERS. WASHINGTON, March 18, —Ths President to-day nominated to the Senate as Minister to England— Cbarlss F. Adams, of Massachusetts. Minister to France— William L. Dayton, of New Jersey. Minister to Sardinia —George P. Marsh, of Vermont. Minister to Turkey— James Watson Webb, of New York. It is thought that the following gentlemen will be appointed Mr. Burlingame will go to Austria- Mr. Motley will be sent to Hague, Mr.'Shurtz will go to Brazil. Mr. Cassius M, Clay is to go to Spain. The nomination of Mr. Dayton, as Minis ter to Franoe, was immediately confirmed, the rule requiring it to be refered having been suspended, as that gentleman was for merly a member of the Senate, and his char acter is, therefore, sufficiently known with out formal investigation. This is the usual courtesy in such cases. The Senate also confirmed the following nominations:— Benjamin M. Trumbull as reeeiyer of Pub lie Moneys at Omaha, N. T. Ex-Congressman Wm. A. Howard as Postmaster at Detroit, Michigan, Wm. S. Thaver was nominated for Con sul General to Egypt, and Patrick J. Devine as Coosul at Cork. Dr. Lock, of Indiana haa been appointed Chief of the Agiicultural Bureau of the Pat ent Office. Shugert to be Removed, Just as we go to Press we clip the follow ing from tbe New York Iribune: " Great efforts are making to induce tbe President to withdraw tbe nomination of Mr. Ilalloway as Commissioner of Patents. In tbut event Mr. Fogg of New Hampshire, wilt piobably be nominated. When that office is filled, one cf tbe first removals will be that of Mr. SLugart, present Chief Clerk. It was he who endeavor- d to force through an ex tension ot Mr. McCormick's Reaper patent, until stopped by Congress. He did extend the four liuseey patents, and, alter hearing the argument at night, made the decision early next morning, and had all the papers signed in one day, which, in tbe ordinary routine, consumes a week or more. THE POWER OF TRUTH.— The secession journals denounce Mr. Lincoln's inaugural with characteristic vehemence. The Rich mond Enquirer says "it is couched in the cool, unimnassioned, deliberate language oi a fanatic," and with other fire eating papers the calm, circumspect and self-possessed manner cf its delivery is a matter of much fault finding. Our traitorous friends should know (bat Mr. Lincoln has no reason for ex citement or passion. They may remember the anecdote of Swift. When the Dean was arguing one day with great coolness, with a gentleman who had become exceedingly warm is the dispute, one of the company asked, " How do you keep your temper so well ? " " The reason is, " replied the Dean, " I have truth on my side. " S&" Parson Brownlow does not seem to desire South Carolina's return to the Union. He says : " South Carolina baa drawn more money from the National Treasury than any other State in the Union, according to her population. She has had a larger represen tation in Congress than oDy other State of no greater white population. And she has paid less into tbe National Treasury than any other State of equal population, consuming less of foreign importation. She has been a tax upon the General Government, and to get rid of her and her burdens is a God-send— Let her go, and Gad. jn bis mercy, forbid that she ever return ! " g@~ Locomotives, to be driven by Ameri can anthracite coal, are now constructing by the Paris and Orleans Railway company, at their work-shops at Irvy, under the direction of a Philadelpbian, of the name of Milbnl land. The coal can be laid down on the line for $6,70 per ton, and the experiment annoys the English coal dealers very much. It is said to be owing to the enterprise of a French nobleman recently in this country, whose attention waa drawn to the subject while travelling with Lord Lyons, tbe British min ister, over tbe Reading Railway. ITALY. —The course of politics indicate that ere long Napoleon will abandon the protection which he has given to ths Pope, since 1848, leaving that Pontiff to settle matt ters with Victor Emmanuel as bes* be can— In a short time Viator Emmanuel will sol emnly assume the title of King of Italy Venetia will probably be purchased from Austria, and war be prevented. This is the more probable, as Austria bas her bands full ia attending to Hungary, which ia ripe for revolt. East Baltimore M. E. Conference CHAMBIRSBURG, March 15, The East Baltimore Csnferecce of the Methodist Episcopal Church is now in ess. sion here. There arc ovsr two hundred min isters in attendance. WASHINGTON LAYING THE CORNER STONE or THE CAPITOL. —A correspondent of the Bangor Whig tells the following very inter esting anecdote of Washington: "Recent events have recalled very forcibly to my mind tbe following incident wbioh may perhaps prove interesting to yiur readers at tbe present time. Bjiog on a visit to Washington during the recess of Congress in the spring of 1857, I walked one day with a friend to view the works whiob warp already in progress for the extension of the Capitol. As we sanntered among the pillars in tbe basement of the old building, we fell in with a venerable looking man, having tbe appearance of a country man, who seemed to be there upon the same business that we were. We entered into conversation with bim, and be informed ue that he was a Virginian, 'raised' a few miles fronv Mount Vernon. ' Very likely ; then,' we remarked, ' you may recollect General Washington.' ' Perfectly well' he replied. ' Indeed, I saw hits when be laid the foundation of this building. I was but a boy then,' he contin ued, ' but I remember very distinctly bow be looked as he stood in this way over the stone and settled it in its place with a pry. It was a huge stone, and %a placed, it must have re quired no little strength to move it. But tbe Geneaal was a very athletic man, and moved it apparently with ease. There was a num ber of boys tbere from our neighborhood, and it was a standing marvel to us all, how tbe General moved that stone. A few days after, tbe General happened to be riding by our school house on horseback, as we were playing outside. We all pulled off our hats to him and be stopped bis horse for a mo ment and spoke to us very pleasantly. One of the boys cried out, ' Please, General, tell us how it was you moved that great stone, up yonder, the other day ?' ' O yes, General, you moved it, we all saw you.' ' Well boys, said the General, looking very serious, and speaking slowly, and shaking his long finger as he spoke, ' Do you see that nobody moves that stone again.'" Cassics M. Clav, the new Minister to the Court of SpaiD, was born in Madison county, Ky., on the 19th of October, JBIO. After studying in Transylvania University at Lex ington, in that State, be entered the Junior claes of Yale Colleg o , where he was gardua ted in 1832, and returned to Kentucky. He devoted himself to the law, and in 1835, was elected to the State Legislature. He was re elected in 1837, and in 1839 was a member of the National Whig Convention at Harris burg which nominated General Harrison for President. Taking up his residence at Lex ington be was eleoted to the Legislature in 1840. He was, however defeated in 1841, owing to his opinions on the slavery question which he everywhere fearlessly expressed.— He denounded the scheme for the annexation of Texas, and in 1844 traversed the Northern States, addressing immense audiences in fa vor of the Whig Presidential candidate. In 1845 be established the True American, an emancipation journal, in Lexington, amid great opposition. Upon the declaration of war with Mexico, he entered the service as captain of the " Old Infantry," a volunteer company which had distinguised itself at the battle of Tippecanoe in 1811. lie was taken prisoner at Encarnacion in January, 1847. — He was exchanged, and returned home in the Autumn of that year, and was presented with a sword in honor of bis services. In 1848 he labored hard for the eleotion of Gen. Taylor, and in 1850 presented himself as a candidate for Governor of the State of Kentucky, on tLe basia of a political oiganizatioa against slav ery. He received some 5000 votes. He has not since been a candidate before the people, through active iu political life. THE FINANCIAL RESULTS OF BUCHANAN'S ADMINISTRATION. —Hon. John Sherman re cently made, in the House of Representa tives, a concise and very forcible exhibit of the condition in which the national finances arc placed. The absolute public debt nut* standing at this moment, is no less than SB7, 000,000; and adding what is required to satisfy the Choctaw and other Indian war debts, to make good the Indian trust fund, and other special objects, the amount of debt becomes $90,188,904. The public debt, four years ago, was only $29,090,386, against which there was a balance in the treasury of $17,710,114, making the net actual debt at that time only $11,350,562. The increase of debt in four years has been no less than SB4, 838.722, or at the rate of $21,500,000 per an num. EQy- " Antelope, " ths New York corres pondent of the New Orleans Picayune, had a look at President Lincoln while he was there, and concludes that while therb is gen iality and merited worth speaking from that face, there is at the same time an iron cast presented, and an indomitable will. Indeed, at a first glance be reminded me of one of my sledge hammers, with whieh I break rocks at home—his body slender like the handle, but tcpped off with a head all solidity, all firm endurance, all iron. His bands, too, are all muscle, and a strong grip from them must be like the grasp of a vice. Everybody is drunk in Charleston— The houses are illuminated, and there ia a general rejoicing over the contemplated sur render of Fort Sumptor. South Carolinia swears she has licked the eld Government, and that the Confederacy is triumphant.— Commissioners will shortly sail for Europe to negotiate the recognition of ihe indepen dence of the Southern Confederacy. So much for Secession. They are gating on famously, and if the Government and everyboey else lets them alone a while longer they will get np some sort of a paper nation. Merchants visiting Philadelphia will find the largest carpet warehouse, and the largest and best stock of goods in the carpet lino, at No. 509 Chestnut street, Messrs. McCallum & Co.. Proprietors, possessing great faoilitiss for manufacturing and im porting extensively feel assured that they can offer inducements to purobaseps. See their card ia another column, and make a note of it. |@~The principles involved in the aur render of Fort Sumpter is no more than that at (take in giviDg up any other Fort. What is the difference between giving up Fort Sumpter and surrendering nny other piece of Government property ? Have they not got all our Forts in Texas ? Have they not got the Mint at New Orleans ? Let them have Fort Sumpter—it is of DO use to us. " A GOOD SIGX." —The Anti Slavery Stan dard denounces Mr. Lincoln's Inaugural a* illiterate and not sufficiently hostile to the South. The Charleston Mercury attacks it also for its grammatical defects, and because it is down on tha South. When these ex tremes meet, it is evidenoe that the inaugu ral must be nearer the right thing than we a uppoeed. J©- Prof- Sands, the celebrated wizard and expoaer of the so called spiritual mani festations, will give an exhibition this even ing, (Thursday.) in Reynold's Ilali.

A cold settles somewhere lu the body, and ob etructs Its natural functions.

While in this condition, oppressed by the derangements, take Ayer's Fills, and see how directly they reetore the natural action of the system, and with It the buoyant feeling of health again.
