FOR THE CAMPAIGN!
RALLY IX VOI R MIGHT!
Road. Think and -Act !
Our appeal is to the intelligent, the candid and
the independent. We ask only that people shall
understand the issues before them, and that, un
derstanding them, they reflect upon their duty
in the premisos and then discharge what they be
lieve to be that duty when they come to cast
their ballots. Ia order that the questions to be
voted upon at the coming election, may be fairly
and fully presented to the public, the BKDFOHD
GAZETTE will be furnished fur the campaign, at
the following low rates
Three copies 1.20
Five copies I ' 3
Ten copies AO®
In ail cases the cash must accompany the order.
We respectfully ask the active men ot our party
to get up clubs for the campaign at every post
offiee in the county. In no other way can the good
cause be more effectively supported than by the
circulation of Democratic newspap .rs. It ought
to be saeasy matter to raise a club of twenty at
any post office. Address METERS A MKVUKL,
WHAT IS A LUXURY?
By a sort of common consent, both
the high tariff party and the free-tra
ders agree that silk goods are a luxury,
and it is therefore supposed that they
stand highest on the list of textile fale
rics upon which taxes are imposed
under our tariff, the rate being Of) per
cent ad valorem; but this is very far
from beiug the case.
The duties upon carpets are much
higher. Upon a cheap Tapestry car
pet, costing in England 57 cents per
yard, the duty is 41 cents, or 72 per
cent; upon a Brussels it is 69 per cent,
and upon bockings, druggets, fellings,
and other low-priced goods the duties
are so high as to amount to prohi
bition. Upon coarse, heavy broad
cloth the duty is Stated by Mr. Edward
Harris, a most skilful manufacturer, to
amount to 135 per cent.
Upon a cheap poplin, a fabric made
of cotton and worsted, costing 7 pence
sterling, or about 14 cents i>er yard in
England, the duty is 12-3 per cent.
Which is the luxury? the low-priced
poplin d.-ess, the coarse broadcloth,
the common carjtet, or the silks and
satins at tin per cent duty.
Why this difference? Itecause an at
tempt has been made to deprive con
sumers of their supply of the cheap
clothing ana combing wools of other
countries by a duty which is almost
prohibitory, while the carpet wools
are still admitted at a very low rate;
next we have attempted to ffirco our
own manufacturers to use wool raised
here at far higher cost, and unfit for
many purposes for which foreign wools
are absolutely needed, and have thus
crippled and almost destroyed several
branches of manufacturing which were
successfully established under a low
tariff; and lastly to compensate the
wool manufacturer for all the disad
vantage thus imposed upon him by
forcing his customers to pay double or
treble price for the goods they need.
What has been the result? An ov
er-supply of one kind of wool chiefiy
raised by us; scarcity and dearness of
other kinds, and a check to the diver
sity of employment in the manufac
ture of woolen and worsted goods in
this country, with a good measure of
protection to the spinners of Europe,
to whom we have scut a full supply of
cheap South American and other
wool. The furniture and wooden
ware which we used to sell to South
America for wool are now made in
Bohemia and Germany; the boots and
shoes in France, and the cotton goods
in England; and as our direct trade
has been almost destroyed, we have
ceased to send the butter, cheese, and
flour which used to form a considerable
portion of every South American and
.South African cargo ; but we pay for
what we still import from these and
other countries either in gold or cheap
bonds. For the latter we have taken
out a patent, and no other country
cares to compete with ns, as they all
admit that we have succeeded in es
tablishing our owu discredit in the
most complete manner possible.

THK lI.AKH CRY IX PESSXTLVA
Says Brick Pomeroy, when the ship
is aleak, her timbers strained and crack
ing under every heavy sea, her ligging
going with every returning squall, the
cabin passengers always i>egin to pock
et their valuables, blow up their life
preservers, and get them nicely and
firmly strapped under their arms, with
a sizeable bladder of wind right under
their chins. The Slate Guard, a Radi
cal paper, in Harrisburg has just com
pleted that necessary preliminary
work, and now, with its chin well up,
it sings out:
"The Radical party has one more chance "
We don't believe it. And we have
grave suspicion that the State Guard
really holds our opinion in relation to
the future of the Radical party. It
does not speak out as plainly on
the subject as we do. It's not to
be expected that it should, while
it remains on board the awfully leaky
hulk ; but it does very well for a Rad
ical paper. It declares that unless that
party adopts a new rule, there will !>e
serious trouble at the coming election
there. We agree with it. in fact we
would have agreed with it if it had
gone further and unburdened itself en
tirely, by declaring that it would have
insurmountable troubles, turn any way
The advice of the State Guard would
do very well if the party were only "up
fora first offence," but it won'tdo for a
party after a long career of continuous
wrongs, when in the hands of the po
lice, and tip for trial before the tribu
nal of public opinion. Copious weep
ing and tearful promise of reform won't
do. I t's "played out." You have en
tered that plea for power too often to
rentier it effective now. And in proof
that the State Guard is not in earnest,
we quote a portion of its queerly cheer
ing effort, which will be felt by Radi
cals as cruelly severe. In addition to
the absolute necessity for adopting a
new rule, it says the party must
"Adhere to an old pledge "
Could there be anything said more
bitingly sarcastic than that, even by the
most open enemy? Will the Guard
please lengthen the above icicle which
it so graefully slips down the heated
Radical back, by asking the shivering
party to name an instance 111 which it
ever adhered to any pledge. It has
promised to revive trade; but it has
only heaped additional burdens upon its
previously overladen back. It prom
ised to give encouragment to healthful
industries, but it has only busied it
self with taxing them at every step.
It promised to reduce the premium
upon gold; but it sent it kiting as
soon as in again, and has kept the
string at its utmost tension ever since.
It promised to reduce the debt; but it
has increased it more than eleven mil
lions during the past year. It promis
ed to lessen taxation ; but it has volun
tarily and villianously added more
than eighty millions to the gokl-inter
est-bearing portion of the foul pretense.
And, now thai we think of it, there is
another thing that it did, which was
not a promise, and may therefore possi
bly be done —it shouted "free trade''
right into the ear of Pennsylvania
Iron is an excellent conductor of
more than electricity, and that shout,
treacherous though it was, was an aw
ful shock to Pennsylvania Radicalism.
FORNEY hasn't quacked since and it
knocked the 111 >re portly Mr. GREE
LEY endwise, through a five column e
pistle on an exalted tariff for the pro
tection of Pennsylvania at the expense
of the United -States.
No; promise of adherauce to old
pledges, or promise of adherence to
any that may now be made, won't tlo.
The sturdy agriculturalists, miners and
mechanics of Pennsylvania have heard
too much in the Radical line of prom
ise of reform. They have resolved up
on a change by which they can yet re
form ; where they have often got it be
fore, and where they will get it again,
and that is with Democracy.
SOME discussion having been aroused
upon the question whether Gen. Grant
did or did not snub Minister Bassett
by declining an interview, has brought
out the latter individual, who gives
the details of the disputed interview,
i le says:
"When I went into Mr, Grant's of
fice I found him talking with Mr.
Cross well —both smoking cigars. They
both received me pleasantly, and 1
was given a cigar by Mr. Grant, the
remains of which I still have. Our
conversation was free and cordial. Mr.
Grant asked me several questions a
bout the resourcesnf Havti, its history,
customs of the people, etc., which I
answered as well us 1 knew how. Mr.
Grant opened a map of the West in
dies as big as that table, and referred
to it. During our conversation Mr.
C'ressweli also examined a cyclopedia
regarding some points that arose."
The President of the United States,
hunting up Hayti on the map, and
making inquiries about it of a confessed
ly ignorant negro, while iiis Cabinet
Minister despairingly rushes into a
"Cyclopedia," is about as tinea bur
lesque upon the important ceremony
of dispatching Envoys, as could well
be conceived. If the Government is to
l>c "run" 111 this style, it will soon run

Ex-President Johnson does not pro
pose to give the Tennessee Radicals any
rest. Some of his speeches, delivered
since his retirement from office, have
been very powerful. Theex-President
has for a long time had the reputation
of being one of the best stump speakers
in the country, and his Claiksville
speech was fully np to any of bis previ
ous efforts. It is very evident that Mr.
Johnson will yet be a power in Ten
nessee i>olities. In a recent speech,
he is reported to have said:
I think the Radical party are disin
tegrating and crumbling away. lam
opposed to making a soft bed for them
to recline on in death. The offices are
not enough for all, money is getting
scarce, and things lying around loose
have been all picked up. Now they
are filled with dissensions and dissat
isfaction, and are fighting for the little
residum of plunder. Our duty is to
give it to them now, to press home up
on them and hasten their death by adhe
re nee—by bold, manly, courageous ad
herence —to the essential principles of
true republican government.
If ever a party was corrupt it is the
radical organization which at present
rules this country. It has scarcely one
single element of honesty or decency
within its folds. There are doubtless
honest well-meaning men in its ranks,
but they are deluded and cheated by
the rascally leaders, whohave commit
ted the most outrageous and horrible
crimes, and all, too, in the name of lib
erty, humanity, and religion. They
have murdered the innocent, plunder
ed the poor, and robbed the country.
But we hope and believe that the days
of their power are drawing to a close.
The people begin to see through their
hypocriey and comprehend the extent
of their meanness. They have made
every effort in their power to destroy
the country, and have brought it tothe
very vergeof ruin. Now, however, the
people are waking toa sense of their dan
ger, and they will rally to stive the
eountry v aud to preserve the free insti
tutions transmitted to us by our fath
ers. In the darkest hours of the past
eight years, we have had faith enough
in the conservatism and intelligence of
the American people to believe that
they would not allow the country to be
entirely destroyed, that after the pas
sion and hate engendered by the war
had worn otff, they would come to their
senses, and see how badly they have
been fooled, and how their patriotism
had been playedffipon for the basest of
purposes. And we have stonger reason
now for such hope and belief than ever
before. The light is breaking. The
American people are coining out from
the worse than Egyptian bondage of
radicalism. The blows which radical
ism will recieve at the polls next Octo
ber, in this and other States, will stag
ger the monster, and before the time
for another Presidential election rolls
round, the heel of Democracy will be
planted upon its neck. Either radical
ism or the country must die, and we be
lieve that the people prefer that the
countrv should live. Titusvitle Star.

The nation cannot too tenderly cher
ish the memory of her dead heroes, or
too watchfully guard the well-being of
those who survive. And may we not
indulge the hope that ere long we who
adhered to the national cause will lie
prompt also to join in commemorating
the heroism of our countrymen who
fell 011 the other side, and that those
who now especially mourn their loss,
consenting to the arbitrament of arms
and resuming all their old love for their
country and our country, one and in

memoration of the fallen brave of the
army of the Union?
The dead are not dead. They have on

Why may not we all borrow from
their sacred graves oblivion of
vast differences, and henceforth
unite in noble and generous endeavor
to assure the honor and welfare of our
whole country, of all her States and of
all her citizens?
Very respectfully, yours,
S. P. CHASE.
LET US HAVE A CHANGE! The
Radical party has been in power so
long that it has become hopelessly cor
rupt. The poison of its rottenness in
fects every branch of business, every
artery of trade. Times are dull, mon
ey is scarce, the farmer gats no price for
his produce, the la'torer is out of em
ployment, the mechanic fails to sell his
wares, the merchant does business on
a long trust. To continue the Radi
cals in power is to prolong this state
of tilings. Men of Bedford county !
Look to your interests and get ready
to vote for a change.
WE again call attention to the pros
pectus of the GAZETTE for the cam

take the GAZETTE may become a sub

once go to work to solicit subscrip
tions for the CAMPAIGN GAZETTE.

DUTIES OF FARMERS. —Farming is
not only a profession, hut of all profes
sions, it embraces the widest range of
Scientificpropositionsand practical facts
and affords the widest field for the
exercise of the philosophic and analytic
mind. Instead of the brightest boys
being sent to a medical college for a
field worthy of their talents, they
should be educated in the science, an i
instructed practically in the duties of
It is a prominent duty of the farmer
so to pursue his calling as to inspire a
respect for it in the minds of his chil
dren, and so train them that they shall
be able to pursue it successfully, which
can only be effected by his availing
himself of every advantage resulting
from the discoveries ofscience and the
accumulated experience of the past.
This will at once strip farming of al
most every disagreeable feature, and
clothe it with attractions possessed by
no other business.
As at present conducted there is a
large amount of very disagreeable la
bor required to be performed in far
ming, and it is mainly to this fact that
we owe the desertion of that busine&s
for others by country boys. Science
and human skill must relieve this, and
undoubtedly will, if the farmer will
avail himself of their aids.— Ex.

Schenck's Pu 1m on icSyrup,
Seaweed Tonic ami Mandrake Pills, will cure Con
sumption, Liver Complaint, and Dyspepsia, if ta
ken according to directions They are all three
to be taken at the same time. Tbey cleanse the
stomach, relax the liver, and put it to work : then
the appetite becomes good ; the food digests and
makes good blood ; the patieut begins to grow in
flesh; the diseased matter ripens in the lungs,
and the patient outgrows the disease and gets
weli. This is the only way to cure consumption
To those three medicines Dr. J. 11. Schenck, of
Philadelphia, owes his unrivalled success in the
treatment of pulmonary consumption The Pul
monic Syrup ripens the morbid matter in the
lungs, nature throws it off by an easy expectora
tion. for when the phlegm or matter is ripe, a
slight cough will throw it off, and the patient has
rest and the lungs begin to heal.
To do this, the Seaweed Tonic and Mandrake
Pills must be freely used to cleanse the stomach
and liver, so that the Pulmonic Syrup and tho
food will make good blood
Schenck's Mandrake Pills act upon the liver,
removing ail obstructions, reiax the ducts of the
gall-bladder, the bile starts freely, and the liver
is soon relieved ; the stools will show what the
Pills can do ; nothing hag ever been invented ex
cept calomel (a deadly poison which is very dan
gerous to use unless with great care), that will
unlock the gall-bladder and starts the secretions
of the liver like Schenck's Mandrake Pills
Liver Complaint is one of the most prominent
causes of Consumption.
Schenck's Seaweed Tonic is a gentle stimulant
and alterative, and the Alkali in the Seawoed,
which this preparation is made of, assists the
stomach to throw out the gastric juice to dissolve
the food with the Pulmonic Syrup, and it is made
into good blood without fermentation or souring
in the stomach.
The great reason why physicians do not cure
consumption is, they try to do too much ; they
give medicine to stop the cough, to stop chills, to
stop night sweats, hectic fever, and by so doing
they derange the whole digestive powers, locking
up the secretions, and eventually the patient
sinks and dies.
Dr. Schenck, in his treatment, does not try to
stop a cough, night sweats, chills, or fever. Re
move the cause, and tbey will all stop of their
own accord. No one can be cured of Consump
tion, Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, Cataarh, Can
ker, Ulcerated Throat, unless the liver and stom
ach are made healthy.
If a person has Consumption, of course the lungs
in some way are diseased, either tubercles, ah
scesses, bronchial irritation, pleura adhesion, or
the lungs are a mass of inflammation and fast de
caying In such cases what must be done ! It
is not only tbe lungs that are wasting, but it is
the whole body. The stomach and liver have lost
their power to make blood out of food. Now the
only chance is to take Schenck s three medicines,
which will bring up a tone to tbe stomach, the
patient will begin to want food, it will digest easi.
ly and make good blood : then the patient begins
to gain in flesh, and as soon as tbe body begins to
grow, the lungs commence to beal up, and the pa
tient gets fleshy and well. This is the only way
to cure consumpt ion.
When there is no lung disease, and only Liver
Complaint and Dyspepsia, Schenck's Seaweed
Tonic and Maodrake Fills are sufficient without
the Pulmonic Syrup. Take tbe Mandrake Pills
freely in all hillious complaints, as they are per
Dr. Schenck, who has enjoyed uninterrupted
health for many years past, and now weighs 225
pounds, was wasted awav to a mere skeleton, in
the very last stage of Pulmonary Consumption,
his physicians having pronounced his case hope
less and abandoned him to his fate. Ho was cured
by the aforesaid medicines, and since his recovery
many thousands similarly afflicted have used Dr.

success. Full directions accompanying each,

J ET EVERY MAN, WOMAN
REA 1> THIS!
Their own interests are at stake in
this matter. Everybody has suffered so mueh
from the accursed CREDIT SYSTEM, if system
it can be called, that I intend to offer to every
body a panacea lor the evil in the future.
Oa and alter the first day of June, 1869, I will
sell goods EXCLUSIVELY FOR CASH OR PRO
DUCE. No doubt some customers may be lost to
me, hut I flatter myself that it will be only those
from whom I cannot collect present accounts.
All goods will be sold at about one-half the
profit now pa'd by consumers. The people often
complain of Bedford prices being higher than else
where, and it is douttloss true, to some extent, for
the reason that good customers have had to pay
for others' goods with an additional profit on tkeir
Let an intelligent community sustain nyt in this
enterprise and they WILL SAVE F'saDM TEN
TO FIFTEEN PER CENT. ON EVERYTHING.
N'OTICE.— All accounts not settled
by the first day of June. 1869, either by cash
or note, will be put in the hands of an ofiieci for
collection. Friends will please take notice, and
by so doing will save trouble and costs.
