From what the philadelphia "News" sta
ted last winter, and from what the Chairman
of the " straightout" Know Nothing State
Committee has lately promised, as we learn
from the Bedford "Gazette" of last week,
there are some rich developments shortly to
be made by the leaders of that faction, as to
the stupendous Bribery that was effected by
the Fremont leaders last Fall. Over one hun
dred thousand dollars are said to have been
brought into this State at one time and ex
pended by that pink of Black Republican
honesty, Tom Ford, of Ohio, and strictly ac
counted for by that gentleman. This fund,
it seems was devoted to the purchase with
gold of the Fillmore press of the State, and
intended to secure the electoral vote to Fre
mont, in case the "Union Electoral Ticket"
was successful. We await with impatience
the promised exposition, as we are rather
prone to believe that a neighbor of ours, from
the sudden rise that took place in his finances
about that time, had his pockets pretty well
lined-'With banknotes, in consideration for
some special duty that had been, or was
thereafter to be performed. However, time
will unravel the mystery. That thousands
and hundreds of thousands of dollars were
sent into this State by the "shriekers" for
"freedom in Kansas," to defeat the election
of Mr. Buchanan, is a fact which is becoming
more apparent every day. In truth, it has
been demonstrated beyond the shadow of a
doubt, and the most startling evidence .of it
comes from the Opposition themselves. Yet
justice, truth, honesty and patriotism pre
vaned over the infamous resorte.and applian
ces of Black Republicanism, and its utter de
molition for the time being, was the .conse
CORRESPONDENCE OF TIME GLOBE.
3/11i. EDITOR, :—Laving bad the pleasure of
attending a Sabbath School celebration held
near McConnellstown on Saturday_ last, I
thought a short report of the proceedings
might be worth 'a place in Your paper; so I
have seated myself for that purpose. The
German Reformed and Methodist Sabbath
schools united and formed in procession in
McConnellstown, about nine o'clock A. M.,
and walked in regular order to a beautiful
grove on the bank of Crooked Creek, one
mile below town. After some time they were
called to order by Rev. S. H. Reid, and the
exercises commenced by singing and prayer.
Rev. A. B. Still was then introduced -to the
audience and made an excellent address, par
ticularly to Sabbath school teachers. Rev.
0. 0. McLean addressed the children and ev
ery one present will agree with me in saying
that the Rev. gentleman deserves to be as
much noted for his ability to amuse and in
terest children, as for his eloquence and ear
nestness in the pulpit. The committee of ar
rangement was then announced, and they
proceeded to prepare and arrange the " good
things" which were so abundantly provided.
The Rev. D. Sheaff entertained the audience
with a few well-timed remarks while all
things were being made ready. At length
they were summoned to the table, and, al
though there was a large number in attend
ance, there was enough for all, and several
baskets of fragments. Dinner being over,
they were allowed to enjoy themselves, ram
bling through the grove, swinging, &c. Early
in the evening, the company was called toge
ther and dismissed by singing and prayer,
after which they marched in good order back
to town. Everything passed off pleasantly,
and all seemed to enjoy themselves. One
thing about this celebration I was pleased to
see—the ministers of four denominations
meeting together and joining in the exercise
in such harmony. May the day not be far
distant when both ministers and people will
step over the walls that stand between denom
inations, and unite in furthering the cause of
their Redeemer. Yours truly,
SPRUCE CREEIi . S August 27.
FRIEND LEWIS :-I feel communicative this
evening, and since the poet says
"Thoughts shut up want. air,
Au spoil like bales unopened to the sun,"
I will use my pen and paper as a safety valve,
and let off a few thoughts which you may in
sert or destroy, just as you please. Since the
date of my last letter to you I have visited
the old homestead ; and with feelings which
words know nothing of, wandered amid the
scenes where the happiest years of my life
were spent. When I reached my childhood
home the sun was just kissing good-bye to
the lofty old pines which stand near "the old
house at home." Busy with recollections of
by-gone days, I had almost unconsciously
gained the threshold, and could scarcely re
frain from rushing in and shouting " home
again I" But ah ! no loved one was there to
welcome me home. True the water bubbled
up from the bottom of the spring with the
low sweet music it did years ago ; and the
Sing of the purling brook was as musical as
ever, and there too, stood the old pear trees,
from whose wide-spreading branches I have
so often gathered the golden fruit, but the
ivi:;d sighing through their lofty boughs seem
ed to whiP'er
Tis no longer home,"
" But now the old house cuing for me—
The home of the stranger henceforth it must be."
As night came stealing along through the
shady groves and began to conceal the dis
tant mountains in her sable robes I turned
slowly away from those hallowed scenes—
scenes sacred to memory's shrines.
On Sabbath I accompanied ni3)- friends to
the place of worship. Here, too, I felt my
self a stranger. The venerable man whose
constant labor was to
'• :Allure to brighter worlds and lead the way,"
no longer filled the sacred desk.
Called from works of love on earth
Up to those of greater worth,
Smiling in the arms of death,
Gladly yielded up his breath.
A strange voice proclaimed the way of life,
and new songs of praise arose from the wor
shiping throng. Yet to me the music, though
performed in modern style, sounded not half
so sweet as the good old fashioned tunes that
charmed my ears in the days of childhood ;
and the truths of the Gospel, though spoken
with energy, wanted the attractions they pos
sessed when they fell from the lips of the
dear old man I learned to love in my boy
hood. Yours, &c. LEROY.
THE ANXIETY or WILMOT.—The recent
letter of David Wilmot, the Black Republi
can candidate for Governor, to the Mow-
Nothings, is a most cringing and imploring
document. He begs that party for their
support with the fervor of desperation, He
puts himself "square" on the proscriptive
platform. He is for having all the offices
held by " Americans"—in other words, he
wants " Americans to rule America." He
thinks that German and. Irish mechanics
ought not to be allowed to compete with na
tive-born workmen. Negroes born on the
soil are natives, and according to his doc
trine, should have the preference over white
men who happened to be born on. the other
side of the Atlantic. To such degradation
has Black Republicanism sunk. Let the
German and Irish population of Pennsylva
nia remember this when they are asked to
vote for Wilmot; and especially, let the Ger
mans of this section who were asked last
year by this same 'Wilmot, and other speak
ers, to support the falsely-named Republican
party, .solely on account of its opposition to
slavery, read his over-anxious and cringing
letter to • the 'Know-Nothings.—Allentorna

THE EXCEEDING VITALITY or MORMAND33f
INDIGNANT EDITOR.—Mr. Appleby, the
Editor of the litornion, and President of the
Mormon (lurch in the Atlantic States, in
dulges in the following flight in the last Mor-
MOM: Mormonism, it appears, is a faith of
seventeen years standing with the Editor.—
"We are heartily tired at being compelled
every week to have to answer or note some
ridiculous article against Gov. Young and the
Mormons. Indeed, to answer all would re
quire a standing army of<writers, and keep in
operation all the printing presses in New
York. We know that Mormonism is a
"thorn in the side" of this apostate genera
tion, and something new to cope with. The
devil bas not had anything like it to contend
with since the days of Jesus, and this gener
ation never had. Hate it, kick it, or drive
it, spurn it, or love it, still Mormonism is just
the same—upward, onward, and eternal.—
In the short space of twenty seven years it
has gone almost to every country and clime,
with all the combined powers of hell and
earth arrayed against it, because God is its
author, upholder and protector, and this gen
eration will yet have to acknowledge it, and
that by the potent aim of Almighty power.—
It is known by millions of holy beings in the
eternal world, and by hundreds of thousands
on the earth, that Mormonism (so called) is
true; we know it, and dare testify of it, and
have known it for almost seventeen long
years, and all the slander, mobbing, or mur
dering, of our enemies, cannot dispossess us
of this fact. Our Elders are nearly all over
the world, and. Mormonism is still forward."
THE " SECRET " CANCER CURE.--Much has
been written about Dr. Fell's secret, 'now be
ing employed by surgeons at the Middlesex
Hospital, London, where the unfortunate
American sculptor Crawford is now under
treatment for this dread affliction. Dr. Fell's
treatment is prescribed in a late medical work
"In the first instance, the skin over the tu
mor is removed by some liquid caustic—ni
tric acid. The thus exposed tumor is then
covered with a layer of an ordinary caustic,
chloride of zinc, spread on linen. This cre
ates a superficial slough. This slough is then
scored to a certain depth by several incisions
of the knife ; into these furrows strips of linen
covered with the caustic are inserted. In this
way the tumor is destroyed still deeper. The
incisions are gradually extended in depth
from time to time, fresh caustic being intro
duced into them at - each dressing, till in this
way the -whole tumor is seriatim converted
into one large eschar, which seperates by a
surface of demarcation, according to the or
dinary principles of surgery."
The constitutional treatment which has
been affirmed to eradicate from the systems
the tendency again to originate cancers, is
affirmed by the same authority to consist in
the internal administration of iodine of arse
AN INTERESTING EXPERIMENT.—Iron Rail
road Superstructure.—The Erie Railroad is
making an interesting experiment of laying
an iron road way for its track. It is com
posed entirely of cast iron, and includes
everything pertaining to the roadway except
the rails. It requires no bolts or spikes of
any kind; and the New York Times says that
it may be taken from the furnace and adjusted
upon the road, with less labor and expense
than is usually required to lay the ordinary
wooden sleepers. This iron casting is imbed
ded in the ground on stone, or a similar
solid foundation, where it is secure from
frost and other disturbing causes. The rails
rest upon India Rubber springs, which den
the noise of a train, and at the same Mae
ease off those heavy blows and shocks of the
engines and cars while running, thus dimin
ishing their wear and tear. As the super
structure of a railroad wears out, it is estima
ted, every seven years, a road laid of a ma
terial more durable than wood is an improve
