THE JOURNAL. CLEARFIELD, PA., DEC. 15, 1858. A number of matters intended Tor this ""week'a paper are unavoidably crowded out. A Correction. In noticing the fact of the freezing of Mr. Ellis, a couple weeks since, we said the Irishman who accompanied the Unfortunate man, returned to Kadebachs. This, it seems, was not the case, neither hav ing been there that day. The Irishman re turned about daylight to Connor's shanty. We make this correction, lest a wrong impres sion might be created by our former statement. PixB County.

Soon after the battle of Leipsic, a wit ob served that Bonaparte must now be in funds, for he had received a check on the Bank of the Elbe. ' "Now, Sam, if you don't stop lickin' that 'lasses, HI tell the man." "Gosh! .you tell the man, and I'll lick you and the 'lasses too."

Til 1IFT11W 4 Satam's $0iintaL S. B. ROW, EDITOR AND rm.eiUKTOR. CLEARFIELD, FA., DEC. 20, 1858. FREE TRADE. The Democratic party is the avowed advo cate of "progressive free trade," which, it is contended, is the policy that our country should pursue, if she desires a wholesome sys tem. As long as the free-traders confine them selves to theorizing, they make out what ap pears to some a plausible case. When, how ever, they como to put their doctrines into practice, their fallacy is at once apparent.' It will do well enough to enunciate their views at political meetings to humbug those who are not sufficiently acquainted with the subject ; but when their policy is put to the test, it wiil be found that its effects are pernicious, and - avill inevitably prove destructive, to a great extent, to many branches of home industry. In truth, one of the best evidences that free trado is not adapted to a growing country, and that its advocates are not sincere in their pro fessions, is found in...

THE ; ;TJ1E JOURNAL; CLEARFIELD, PA., JAN. 5, 1859. PotrtESEss". Politeness is certainly one of the Tirtnea that is calculated to make neigh bors social, and to hold each other in high es timation. While, on the other hand,' impo liteness will most assuredly, create a coldness and a dislike for each other. One of the most impolite practices indulged ia by many young persons, ia the habit of talking in church ; of which fact, we have recently been reminded, by hearing several persons talk in a loud voice dating prayers and singing, in one of our churches. : Persons had much better stay away from the house of God, than to engage in con versation that is calculated to annoy, and give rise to unpleasant feelings in others. It is certainly not genteel. Always "judge a tree by its fruits." 2iEXf Year. The first of January passed oil without bringing forth any extraordinary events.

U U i consistent with the act of repeal itself. 1 do not doubt that the Legislators mar alter, re voke, or annul, any existing bank ohartcr,when eTer in its opinion the continuance of the charter, mar be injurious to the citizens of the Commonwealth. Any other contraction of the constitational reservation would make the interests and safety of the public subser vient to the gain of tbe private stockholder. Believing, therefore, that there is no want of power, I cannot refrain from expressing my decided opinion, that whenever it is clear that a bank is insolvent, or in great danger of be coming so, or whenever its privileges are used or abased as to seriously prejudice the inter stsof the public, it is"the,daty of the law making power to protect the people, by des troying its corporate existence.
