u u A Lokdox Fog. The London Star of Janu ary 15th, tbns describes one of the fogs for which the English metropolis is famous : "We had another dense fog in the metropolis yes terday morning, necessitating the use of gas in the shops and all places of business, and impeding traffic in every direction. About ten o'clock a remarkable phenomenon was wit nessed with great interest by thousands ot per sons. To the westward of London the fog ap peared to open, showing in the gap, which stretched across the hemisphere, a beautiful violet sky, from which fell a broad, bright belt of light. It was altogether a remarkable sight, and, as seen from Waterloo bridge, its efiect was most striking. The light spread across the Thames, over Hungerford bridge, and the tide being almost at the flow, the water was il laminated as by an electric reflector. All a round and below the bridge was darkness ; but borerthe ontline of the riTer, with its float ing craft was rendered sharply clear by the rays str...

Raftsman's Jmtraal; S. B. BOW, EDITOR ASO PBOPBIKTOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., MARCH 2, 1859. " THE FIZZ'S PEAK GOLD MANIA. The Pike's Peak gold fever scorns to be pre vailing to almost as great an extent at the present time, as the California did in its palm iest days. From all quarters we hear of the formation of companies, preparatory to start ing for the new Eldorado as soon as the sea son will permit ; indeed, we understand, that onr own county is not entirely tree from the contagion, and til at quite a number of persons are talking about "pulling up stakes" in the spring, and going to the t;diggin'.' We presume there is little use in telling the infected to "keep cool" about the matter, for once the excitement is up, but few will listen to advice of any kind. Nor are we surprised that the fever is spreading. Most of the ac counts represent the gold as being plenty at the mines, and that digging pays from $4 to $10, and perhaps more, a day to the man This may be .all true, and yet noth...

The Administration oi James Buchanan will, through all future time, be regarded as the most corrupt that has ever had the control of oar Government. Recent developments force the conclusion upon us that nearly every act thus far has been marked with the most outra geous favoritism and reckless squandering of the public treasure. The- reports of the In vestigating Committees appointed by Con gress expose some of these disreputable trans actions, and, startling as the assertion may be, show that the President himself, as well as his Secretary of the Navy, countenanced and en couraged the corruption. The Naval Investigating Committee report that the Navy Tards are stocked with political favorites, whose appointment is dictated by democratic members of Congress as a politi cal reward, and that men are employed in them by the hundreds, jnst before e...

u t Til . 4E1M TFIE GUNMAKER OF MOSCOW'. A Tale of the Empire under Peter tha Great. CHAPTER I. The time at wbicb we open onr story is mid winter, .and towards the close of the seTer "teenth century. Russia is the scene. In lhe snbnrbs of Moscow, and very near the river Moskwa, stood an humble cot, which betrayed a neatness of arrangement and show of taste that more than made cp for its small ness of size. Back of the cot was an artisan's shop, and other out-buildings. The shop was devoted to the manufacture oi fire-arms, most ly, borne swords, and other edged weapons, were made here upon special application. The master of this tenement was the hero of onr tale, Ruric Nevel. We find him standing by his forge, watching the white smoke as it curled np towards the throat of the chimney. He was a young man, not overthree-ani-twen- ty, and possessed a frame of more than ordi nary symmetry and muscular development He was not large not above a medium size but a single glance at the swellin...

Or why should you seek to borrow tJricf thy spirit to annoy : Every day viiy have its sorrow, But each day icill bring its joy : Ever hope on. for to-morrow May bring peace without alloy.

IS IT HOT EOT Corruption, squandering, peculation, revel ry, debauchery, perfidy, wantonness, murder these are just now a few of the distinguishing features of our National Capital. Washing ton City, we think, can vie in that which is wicked and debasing with those ancient "cities of the plain," which the Almighty visited with such terrible vengeance. The heart grows sick as we contemplate the fearful depth of iniquity into which she is sunken. Noth ing seemstoo villainous nothing too perfidi ous nothing too immoral, not to be perpetra ted there. There is no use in mincing words about it it is the truth, and no one who has any regard for veracity will dare gainsay it. Xor is Washington alone so the other great cities of the land are contaminated more or less in the same way, and traces of this degra ded state of morality are plainly discernable all over the country.

TILE JOURNAL. CLEARFIELD, PA., MARCH 23, 18.30. KIVEB NEWS. Tue Limber Business Two Men ii&owscd at Lock Haven LIicu Water Raits adrift Bbidge swept awat. The West Branch of the Susquehanna River has for two weeks past been most of the time in good rafting or der, and nearly all the timber, sawed lumber and shingles that had been hauled, have pass ed down. The quantity, as we have hereto fore stated, will fall considerably short of what it has been for a number of yesrs, and will not supply the demand. In consequence of this, we have reason to hope that our hard-working and deserving lumbermen will this spring get better prices than they have for the last three or lour seasons. We have not heard or any sales having as yet been made at Marietta, which is in all probability owing to the fact of the "flood" having come on very unexpected ly, and that the eastern dealers havo scarcely had timu to reach that place and look around. At Lock Haven, as we learn by the Walchman of the 17t...

Thou didst for sins pon the e'roef Shed thy atoning blood ; Then let it wash my sin away, And seal xny peace with God. Help me forsake all other trust, And trust alone in thee : Eelp me repent of every lust, And thy young servant be. Renew my heart, by grace divine', That I may never stray : And let thy light within me shine, And guide me all the way.

And now, it seems, in order to distinguish those who adhere to Buchanan and sustain the action of the late office-holders and place-seekers convention, from those who go with Gov. Packer in carrying out the pro fessions they made in the campaign of 1S56, we are to have a new species added to the long catalogne,whcb is to bear the expressive appel lation of "The Regenerated Democracy."
