The splendid victory achwved by the
Democrats of Bedford county, at the
late election, will inspire every friend
of constitutional liberty within the
bounds of the county, with renewed
hope for the cause and renewed en -rgy
to prosecute the struggle for the redemp
tion of the country from the clutches of
the vainpyres that have battened upon
its blood. Many successive defeats (not
in the county, it is true, but in the coun
try at large) had wrought a feeling of
despair in tiie hearts of Democrats, and
it is really a matter of wonder that in
the face of repeated disaster, they ralli
ed again and again, until finally their
banner waved triumphantly above
their fallen foe. in 1803, tic county
gave but 137 Democratic majority. In
186G, we added 107 to this, making the
majority 211. In 1867, we again added
9-3, making the majority 339. During
the last three years the contest has been
most fierce and determined, the enemy
straining their utmost to poll every
vote they could muster. But their ef
forts have culminated, and they will
never again be able to rally their forces
as in the past. It is for the triumphant
Democracy, to improve their victory,
by moderation, fairness and justice to
ward the vanquished, whilst seeking
to exert every proper influence to in
crease the strength of the party. Go to
work now, and keep up the work until
the Presidential election.
WE will publish the official vote of
the State in our next. Philadelphia
gives Sharswood 2487 majority; Berks,
5,795; Northampton, 2,952; Luzerne,
2,305; Lehigh, 1,027; Schuylkill, 1,123;
Westmoreland, 1,433; Greene, 1,413;
Clearfie'd 1,263; Clarion, 1,193; Colum
bia, 1,757; Cambria, 952; Monroe, 1 ,SIG j
York, 2,823.
Williams has 6,425 majority in Alle
gheny; 3,208 in Bradford; 1,898 in Ches
ter; 1,401 in Dauphin; 1,967 in Erie;
5,324 in Lancaster; 1,547 in Lawrence;
1,124 in Lebanon; 1,215 in Somerset;
1,276 in Susquehannah ; 2,655 in Tioga;
and 1,059 in Deleware.
JUDGE SHARSWOOD'S real majority
is upwards of 1,000, as the Philadelphia
Return judges counted several hundred
votes polled for Williams, by regulars
at Fort Delaware. Even the Radical
Act of Assembly permitting soldiers to
vote outside of the State, does not pro
vide for this. It provides only for the
reception of votes cast by volunteers
called into service by the President of
the United States.
THE defeat of Messrs. Sehell and
Findlay, our candidates for the legisla
ture, is greatly regretted. In the
midst of the general rejoicing, we must
pause to express our sorrow for their
fate. Bedford county did all that was
expected of her. She gave Mr. ScheH
53d majority and Mr. Findlay a gain
of 100 over Sharswood. Little Fulton
also did well. But Somerset is joined
to her idols. She loves her politics bet
ter than her own material welfare.
Well, if her people can stand that sort
of business, we can.
As "Swan's militia" are about to in
vade Pennsylvania, ought not "loyal
people" at once to rush to the defence
of the State? Let none wait for the
editors of the Inquirer to "enlist." One
of them has "varicose veins," and the
other is singularly afflicted with peri
odical lameness during war times.
Poor fellows! Nature has forbidden
that they should enter the lists of mar
tial glory.
"SCHELDER deine gewc-hr! Abs,
peif! Uhly, drumm! Hamsparger,
kumm !" Such is, doubtless, the battle
cry of Bro. Scull, of t'.ie Somerset Her
ald, as he marshals the hosts of Som
erset to defend tb e sacred soil of Penn
sylvania again-, t the threatened inroad
of "Swan's railitia." Hurry up your
recruits, >* e d! Pennsylvania must not
be captured by 12,000 militia !
IT is hinted in certain Radical quar
ters that there is to be a change in the
editorship of the Inquirer , the elections
having repeatedly demonstrated that
the more violently a Democratic candi
date is opposed by that sheet, the great
er is sure to he his majority.
THE laggards were taught a lesson
at the late election, which they will
not soon forget. They said to their
neighbors, "Oh! it's of no use to go to the
election ! We'll be beaten any how !"
They will know better hereafter.
JOHN CESSNA is a "buster." He
stumped Franklin county this year-
Result, 180 Democratic majority. Last
year it gave Geary, 19.3.
THE Democrats gain a .-senator and
Representative in the Huntingdon
district. Farewell, Gerrymander.
i*ex xxy lva x i a redeem f.d :
Official returns from all the counties
ofthis State show theelectionof HON.
GEORGE SH A Its WOOD to the office
of Supreme Judge for the ensuing fif
teen years, by a majority of 791. This
makes the Democratic gain in the
State since hist year about 18,000, and
since 1.863, 23,.300! The Legislature is
close, but owing to the infamous ap
portionment under which the people
labor, will be again in the hands of the
Radicals. A number of Democratic
candidates for the Legislature, were
defeated by but a few votes. Another
tire along the lino, and the Legislature
will also be Democratic.
In Ohio, the Democrats have curried
both houses of the Legislature, secur
ing the election of a Democratic U. S.
Senator in place of Ben. Wade. The
Governor is in doubt, the majority be
ing but a few hundred either way. A
bout 1,500 negroes voted for the Radi
cal candidate, and the chances are that
there will be a contested election. The
Democratic gain in Ohio, since last
year, is fully 40,000, and since 18G3,100,-
000! That will do for this time.
lowa, also, has made large Demo
cratic gains, probably about 20,000
since last year. Such is the story from
every quarter, and it will be better still
next year, if the Radicals do not repent
of their sins, quit their agitation of the
Negro question, and cease talking a
bout impeachment, confiscation, agra
rianism, and the rest of their deviltries.
The return judges for this Represen
tative district met in this place, on
Tuesday last, and upon examination
of the returns, it appeared that the vote
for Representatives stood as follows:
Schell Findlny. Welter. Richards.
Bedford, 2751 2649 2214 2217
Fulton 1035 1010 60S 711
Somerset, 1523 1623 2746 2632
5309 5232 5653 5610
Richards over Schell, 301, over Find
lav, 328. Weller over Schell, 349, over
Findlay, 376. Enough Democratic
votes remained at home in the district
to have overcome these majorities by
at least 200. How do you feel, lag
gards ?
The vote in this Congressional dis
trict stands :
Devi. Maj. Rctd. Maj.
Adams, 392
Bedford, 339
Franklin, 189
Fulton, 310
Somerset, 1,215
Dern. maj. in district. 15
Will Gen. Koontz please make a note
of this ? *
THE majority for Peter M. Barton,
for county Commissioner, is 377, just
38 more than that for Sharswood. So
much for the Inquirer's great "discov
ery" of the "316,000" which the county
isiuflebted to the State. If the Inquirer
keeps on with its "discoveries," its par
ty will have trouble to find candidates
after awhile.
JOHN' I. NOBLE, the Democratic can
didate for Poor Director, has 317 major
ity, 9 more than Sharswood. Thus
have the people rebuked the vile cal
umnies heaped upon the late Treasurer
of the Poor House, and manifested their
utter contempt for the lying electioneer
ing stories of the Bedford Inquirer.
DREADFUL ! It appears that the peo
ple wanted "a District Attorney who
drank toasts to Jeff. Davis during the
war and proposed to raise the rebel fiag
in their midst!" The election of Kerr
renders "another war" almost cer
MR. KERR, the Democratic candidate
for District Attorney, has 310 majority,
10 more than Sharswood. What a pity
that he drank that "toast to Jeff. Da
vis!" There is no telling what might
have been his majority, if he hadn't
done that awful deed.
THE Inquirer is great on Mother
Goose's Melodies. In its last issue it
sang thus of its candidates:
•-Little 80-peep,
lie lost his sheep,
And don't know where to find them-
Let them alone,
And they'll forne home,
With their little tails behind them !"
And they did.
THE question is, mis John Brown
made drunk on "Copperhead whis
A NUMBER of Democratic meetings
were held, which were not reported in
our paper, for the reason that we did not
get an account of the proceedings un
til after the election.
Below will be found a full and accu
rate table of the returns of the late elec
tion for this county. It will be seen
that Judge Sharswood's majority, is
339, a gain of 95 votes since last year.
Nearly all the Democratic candidates
for county offices run ahead of Khars
wood. In justice to Capt. Swart/, it
should be remembered that he declin
ed the Radical nomination for Audi
tor. and was, therefore, no candidate.

some gains they made over last year.

ALBANY, N. Y., October 11. —The
Democrats of the Knickerbocker City
have had a public rejoicingthisevening
over the result of the October elections.
Salutes, torchlight processions, bands
of music and a tumult generally expres
sed the satisfaction of tlie Albanians.
Among the transparencies was one
stating that "Ohio has been Wade and
found wanting," and another promi
sing forty thousand Democratic major

in honor of the supposed Democratic
victory was fully as enthusiastic as the

The Ohio Election.
The result of the Ohio election is as
yet so far in doubt that it is thought
nothing but the official count will de
termine the issue. Charges are made
that negroes were permitted to vote,
and in ease the Radicals should make
out a small majority, sufficient to have
been made by these votes, the election
is to he contested. The Cincinnati En
quirer calls on the Democracy not to
yield the governorship if negro votes
can be proven to have been polled. In
the legislature the Democrats have a
majority often on joint ballot, a change
from the Radical majority of the last
body of forty-six.

Fori ACTS OF CHARITY and Benevo
lence Philadelphia stands prominent a
mong her sister cities. During the war
she had our refreshment saloons where
thousands were fed while on their way
to the "front,"and now, in order that the
good work may be continued, it is pro
posed to provide for the orphans of ma
ny of those brave heroes who feli in de
fense of the stars and stripes. For this
purpose the Washington Library Com
pany of Philadelphia was organized in
aid of the Riverside Institute of New
Jersey. Here the Orphans of Soldie s
and Sailors in all parts of the country
will be gratuitously educated and made
useful members of society. The just
and honorable plan adopted for raising
the necessary funds for this charitable
object has received the endorsement of
every one. Read advertisement.

—Since the year 1812 when the first
load of anthracite coal was taken back
to Philadelphia and given away, the
production consequent upon an extend

regularity, and now it reaches from ten
to twelve million tuns a year. It is es
timated that in ten years it will have
reached the enormous annual produc

This great medicine cured Dr. J. 11. Schenck, the
proprietor, of Pulmonary Consumption, when it
had assumed its most formidable aspect, and when
speedy death appeared to be inevitable. Hisphy
sicians pronounced his case incurable, when he
commenced the isc of this simple but powerful
remedy. His health was restored in a very short
time, and no return of the disease has been appre
hended, for all the symptoms quickly disappeared,
and his present weight is more than two hundred
Since his recovery, he has devoted his attention
exclusively to the cure of Consumption, and the
diseases which aro usually complicated with it.
and the cures effected by his medicines have been
very numerous and truly wonderful. Dr. Schenck
makes professional visits to several of tho larger
cities weekly, where he has a large concourse of
patients, and it is truly astonishing to see poor
consumptives that have to be lifted out of their
carriages, and in a few months healthy, robust
persons. Dr. Schenck's PULMONIC SYRUP, SEA
WEED TONIC, and MANDRAKE PILLS, are generally
all required in curing Consumption. Full direc
tions accompany each, so that any one can take
them without seeing Dr. Schenck, but when it is
convenient it is best to see him. He gives advice
free, but for a thorough examination with his Re
spirometer his fee is three dollars.
Please observe, when purchasing, that the two
likenesses of the Doctor, one when in the last stnge
of consumption, and the other as ho now is, in per
