OI it FORTHCOMING EM VRUEMEST, —Lest
'•or friends led -me restive concerning our pro*
poswl eulaijrcuwut and new dress, we would
just say that the Power Press now building for
us in \' tv York, will not be ready for ship
ment lielore the IHli of October, and, therefore,
wc cannot enlarge before that time. The rea
on of th'es is, that there is a great rush for
prce.se?, just at this time, the Southern printers
being about to renew their establishments and
many country offices throwing out their hand
and replacing thein with power ma
chine- We hope, however, before the end of
October, to give our subscribers a paper so
greatly improved in typographical appearance,
as well ::i in quantity and variety of reading
matter, that it will merit the largely increased
patronage which we must have to sustain the
kind ol journal we intend giving the public.
In this connection, we would again urge every
Democrat who is not now a subscriber to the
liazittc, to become one at once. Send in your
Two DOLE A its, and we promise that you will
not regret having done so, at the end of the
rear. Every family should have a newspaper,
and there is noue of so much importance to
the household, as your own home paper.
THE ARREST OV MENGEL REED. —Last week
wc stated that Mengel Reed, after his acquittal
by the Grand Jury, of the charge of complic
•tv m the shooting of Jacob Crouse, had been
arrested by ati Assistant U. S. Marshal, on a
warrant issued from the L. S. District Court
: r the Western. District of Pennsylvania, on
t!i<* charge of Treason. The arrest was at
: tapted in the court room, but his honor, Judge
King, fitly rebuked it. The U. S. officer who
■ ;.-led Reed entered into an agreement with
Judge Kionnell, counseWor John P. Reed, Jr.,
th°n about to be tried for his life, to produce
Mongol the next morning, in Court,he (Mengel)
having been subpoenaed as a witness in his
brother's case. On the night after the arrest,
the IK' tore- mentioned U. S officer took Mengel
out of the charge of the sheriff, inarched him
to the. Washington Hotel, where he kept him
over night, and the next morning, before Court
was in session, in violation of his agreement
with Judge Kiinnieil, started with his prisoner
for Pittsburg. Arrived at that city, Mengel
was taken before U. S. Commissioner Sproul,
who, after bearing the manner of the arrest,
pronounced it an insult to the United States
government, directed the party who arrested
Mengel to take him hack to Bedford at once, to
treat him kindly and to havre hiui report at
Pittsburg again on the 21st inst. Mr. Purvi*
unce, a distinguished Republican lawyer, hap
pened to be present when Mengel was produced
betore the U. S. Commissioner. Upon hear
ing the nature of the case, Mr. Purviaoce re
marked that he thought he saw m it "a conspir
acy in which he would uot like to- have any
part" —ln compliance with the injunction of
fi e U. S. Commissioner, Meugel was brought
back to this place where he uow is patiently
waiting fur the day when lie is to bo confronted

Kr.cr.NT ELECTIONS —Two of the black New
England states have just voted. Vermont has
elected an Abolition Governor, as usual but by
a decreased majority. The Democrats have
also gained a number of representatives.
Maine ha? just re-elected her present Abolition
Governor, the majority, being, however, some
5,000 less than last year. Of course, nothing
can be expected from that quarter. —Califor-
nia has also just voted for members of the Leg
islature. For the first time in live years, the
Democrats have succeeded in electing a part
ot their ticket in San Francisco, securing
seven of the fourteen members. It looks very
much as though the next Legislature of Cal
ifornia will bo controlled by the Democracy.
COME TO LIKE AGAIN. —Our old friend Nich
olas Sleek, of Napier tp., enlisted, some years
ago, in the Fifty fifth P. V., and at the battle
of Drury's lilutf, was lost sight of and given
up by his friends as dead. On Tuesday, last,
however, the long lost volunteer returned, to
the gratification of many who had shared in the
general belief that he was dead. lie had been
badly wounded at Drury's lilutf, being shot
through both thighs, was takeu prisoner and re
mained in hospital at Richmond until exchang
ed. Welcome home, Nick !
MERCERS BURG COLLEGE. —The valuable prop
erty formerly known as the Marshall Collegi
ate Institute, at Mcrcersburg, Pa , lias recently
been purchased by the Mercersburg Clasris of
the German Reformed Church, and a classical
institution of tiie highest order, is being organ
ized under the management of an efficient
Board of Trustees. Rev. G. W. Augbinbaugh,
favorably known to this community as an ex
cellent teacher and able minister of the Gospel,
has been elected President of tlie Faculty, und
will be supported by competent male and fe
male assistants. Parents and guardians anx
ious to give their children and wards a good ed
ucation, will do well to patronize this new in
stitution, Boon to be formally opened under the
most favorable auspices. The location pos
sesses unusual advantages, as regards the pro
motion of health and morals. The beauty of
the mountain scenery is unsurpassed. The
course of instruction will be full and thorough
and the discipline such as is best calculated to
develop sterling character. The students will
be under the immediate supervision of the fac
ulty as one well-regulated family. The inaug
ural exeicises will take place about the Ist of
October, and it is very important that all appli
cants for admission be in attendance at the com
mencement of the term. Circulars containing
satisfactory information on all potats of inter
est, will soon be issued and may be had with
additional particulars, by applying to Rev. II

Remarkable Cases of Conscience.
MI:. EDITOR :
At times there are rfc mark able develop
ments in the moral as well as in the intellectual
and material world. A striking illustration of
this truth was exemplified in the ca9e of Mr.
li and his two neighbors, one of the Ar
minian and the other of the Geneva school —
parties forming a portion of an aristocratic cir
cle in one of the loWer Counties of "Maryland,
my Maryland." Mr. 15 flourished a broad
brim , spoke the plain language, and had an in
stinctive dread of war, with its untold horrors.
However, when the recent unhappy agitation
in our country culminated in the clash of arras,
and the din of battles, the peaceful disciple of
Ponn, discerning, as the result of the struggle,
"the future desenthfatmont and elevation of the
negro," rejoiced at the indications of Providence.
It was all l ight. The great problem, was be
ing solved —the nation chastised, and though
the revolution progressed amid scenes of devas
tation, tears and blood—draping the land in
mourning, nnd rending the air with shrieks of
anguish—" the end justified the means.'" The
brightness and moral grandeur of the good time
coming," would more than make amends for all!"
Hut a change, a sad change, came over the
spirit of his dream! A bounty tax was levied
by the county commissioners. The levy was
legalized by the state legislature, and a publi
can called upon Mr. 15 for his portion of
the "needful." Though possessed of abundance
of gold and silver—-and "greenbacks" —• not one
cent would he grve to support the unrighteous war.
It was contrary to his principles—his conscience
was involved in the matter. "Thee can oppress
the innocent, thee can sacrifice my property, il
thee chooses. I am willing to sutler for the
i sake of my principles !' The publican, armed
! with legal authority, was not to be thwarted
in his purposes. Accordingly, property was
seized and advertised. The Geneva ami the
Arminian neighbors (though professing the pur
est loyalty) sympathized greatly with their chris
tian brother in his afflictions. "It was hard
that a man should suffer for conscience' sake ;
yet it was noble to make sacrifices for principle"
&c. Being themselves quite conscientious (for
j their pockets' sake), they arranged to turn the
affair to a good account- Knowing that but
few persons would attend the auction, they a
greed aot to bid against each other, so that the
property might be secured At a very low figure,
and be divided between them. With an ingen
uity highly creditable to shrewd business- men,
; they carried out their well arranged purpose,
and obtained the property at less than one third
of its real value. Now, Mr. Editor, it strikes
the writer that such eases of conscience might
Ibe relieved and improved, without any serious
difficulty. Mr. 15 by observing the scriptur
al precepts, "submit to the powers which be,"
I "render unto Cesar the things which are Casar's"
&c., would learn to yield obedience to the civil
uthorii ; es, and thereby relieve the publican from
the unpleasant necessity of having recourse to [
extreme measures. And the Arminian andGe- ;
neva lights would lose nothing, either in lustre, •
or in morals, by considering, and carrying into :
practical operation, the golden rule. As ye would
that men do unto you, do ye even so unto them,
for this is the law and the prophets." True, j
their pockets might be lighter, but their con- j
sciences would be easier. At least so thinks
September 11th 1865.
ONCE MORE UNTO THE BREACH !—The fol
lowing communication from a worthy soldier,
came too late for last week's issue. We give it
with pleasure, this week :
- WooDßEimy, BEDFORD CO., PA.,
Sept. +, 1865.
FRIEND MEYERS:—I take the present oppor
tunity to drop you a few lines to let you know
that 1 want the GAZETTE one year longer, be
cause it is the most satisfactory paper 1 ever
had. Last summer, in the army, I got Mc-
Clure's paper, from Charubersburg. I like to
read a '•Republican" paper, hut every week
that sheet was filled witii Abolition stuff and
talk in favor of the "nigger," and I became
completely disgusted with it. My own opinion
is, if a white man thinks more of a "nigger'' j
than of his own race, let hint go with the j
blacks. For my own part, I like a darkey—
if he keeps his distance. 1 have some very
good neighbors who are "Republicans," but
some of them ti.lk iti favor of giving negroes
the right to vote, which is rather "strong cof- j
fee" for me. Such men ought to eat, drink and
sleep with negroes, and have a little bunch of
wool tied to the end of their nose. Our "Re
publican" friends have some sweet words for
the soldiers, but they can't honey tip us "boys |
in blue" to vote for "Negro Suffrage." We j
know too much about the "American citizen j
of African descent," to act so foolish a part.
We believe that God did not intend the black t
to be the equal of the white, or else lie would
have created him such. But, the sweet words
of the Abolitionists, are well understood by us.
They don't care half as much about us as they
pretend, or they wouldu't call us "skulkers," j
"skedaddlers," "bounty-jumpers," and other j
hard names. Besides, if they really felt for
the soldiers, they would rather try to get a vote
for the young men under twenty-one years of I
age, who were in the army, than make such a
great fuss about the rights of "niggers." There >
are thousands of brave young men from sixteen j
to twenty years of age, who were .wounded in ;
the service, that ought to have the right to vote, !
rather than the black pets of the Abolitionists. ■
Why don't these great friends of ours advocate !
the young soldiers' rights ? I was in fourteen j
battles and never saw hut two dead niggers, ;
except at the Crater, on the 30th of July, 18G1,
where they fell into a trap and quite a number
of them were killed. I believe in White Men
.ruling America. I fought for a White Man's
•Government and intend to vote for it also.
Fellow soldiers, we must mount guard on the
tenth of October next. Hurrah for Col. Da- i
vis and Major Linton !
late of Co. 11, 149 th I*. V., (Bucktaila).
Thad. Stevens' Platform.
The Abolition platform upon which Hartranft,
Campbell and the Abolition county ticket stand,
was drafted by Thaddeus Stevens, who is the op
ponent and enemy of Andrew Johnson. Stevens
made a speech, in Lancaster, a few day ago, in
Which he pitched into President Johnson's restor
ation policy iu the most furiousstyle, and wound
up by saying that the Southern states must be
kept out of the Union for a period of time in
order to save the Republican party. Hence, the
resolution in the Abolition state platform which
declares that the Southern States must be "held
in subjugation." The question therefore, uow is,
ahull the Union, or the Republican party, have
the preference in the hearts of the people ?
The Abolitionists arc secretly at Work, or
ganizing their party. They will exert every
nerve to get out their vote. Democrats of the
country! Roll up your sleeves and determine
that you will increase your vote of last fall.
Bedford Borough will do its share. Let every
district aim to increase its Democratic vote.
OBSERVE THE FACT ! —Although it has been
charged over and over again by the Democratic
journals of .the State that Messrs. Hartranft
and Campbell are standing on a Negro Suffrage
platform, and that the Republicans of Penn
sylvania ate running the Black Issue, not one
of the Shoddy organs has even denied the fact.
By their silence they admit the truth of the
charge ! They dare not deny it! White men
—soldiers ! ate you prepared to cast your bal
lots for negro suffrage und equality ?

It is hardly possible for us to accurately describe
