Ef^We undersland that the Bellefonte Fencibles, at a recent meeting, passed resolutions in response to an article in the Central Prcn on the subject of petitioning Congress to locate the proposed National Foundry in the vicinity of Bellefonte. We have had' no official account of the meeting, nor are we aware that anything more than the mere passage of resoluiions has been accomplished. The subject is one of such paramount im portance, that we will not believe it will be allowed to rest without some effort at least to bring the immense advantages of Central Pennsylvania properly before Congress. We are still of the opinion that Centre county, both by her locality and her immense mineral resources, is betler adapted for these ¦works than any part of the middle or eastern elates. A topographical survey would demonstrate the truth of this assertion, and if the people of Centre county are only willing to bring the great claims of this region before Congress, we almost feel certain that...

S*We feel like apologising for the matter and appearance of the Press this week. Our excuse must be the large amount of Job-work which prevented us from giving that attention to the paper whbh it deserves. We hope to give The usual variety next week.

©ifacc-SeeliCE's A desire for office, among pailizans in this country, has led lo a disposition of se.-vility to popular prejudice. Unfortunately for the Democracy of a republic, it is never properly understood—ar.d in some of the republics in ihis hemisphere, it has led lo a spiiit of -atheism alike repugnant to civil liberty and religious toleration. The republics of South America illustrate this fact. Mexico herself is a striking ins-lance of the extreme of Democracy, which teaches a disregard for civil law, engendering an utter ignorance of the responsibility of the people, until at last from the anarchy of a perfectly free stale of society, the people of Mexico have fallen into ihe power of a priesthood, who under the seeming teaching of religion, inculcaie worse lessons than Atheism, when they teach the doctrine of a union of Church and State, and a reliance on the priesthood for political as well as religious advice. T is condition of other nations might be quoted, but ...

ualize, because the practice has become as general as it is ridiculous. The chince for the next Presidency is played as a game as common as "old sledge," and has become, as fascinating to the uninitiated as ' fairo" or "euchre." In this delusive applause of men, the people are enthusiastically enlisted, as candidates suit themselves to the prejudices of sections, or adapt their srmiments to the popular demand—rand no Statesman can possibly enter the lists of such a contest, without either having his motives impugned or his patriotism damaged. He loses his character both for dignity and decency, the moment he becomes the tool of an office-seek ing faction—and can add little lo the public sentiment or intelligence by harranguing mulliludes from the guards of steamboats or the balconies of hotels. We protest against the whole proceedings as anti republican and indecent. Such exhibitions promote neither the polices or the morals of the people, and the good sense of the conservative ...

Id^We invite attention lo the speech of Hon. Simon Cameron, on the subject of the Tariff, published on the first page of the Press. At this time, the facts and the'R' gures adduced in this speech will be found to be highly interesting as arguments in faVor of protection to the great interests of Pennsylvania. They show how necessary it is to foster the different branches of labor, by throwing around all the protections of government — and until this is done, government itself will fail in ils objects and purposes. The Pennsylvania Senator proves in a few woids how inconsistent it is longer lo resist the necessity. He proves by his own argument and compiled statistics that by protecting tbe iron trade we eneouiage agriculture and increase the revenue of the country. He also proves that under well devised revenue laws, labor is encouraged to a useful emulation of industry, and must eventually become the great shield of al! our national inpnstnyarrdreal prosperity. We advise every fa...

GiPIt will be remembered that Jeff". Davis recently counselled the sovereign Stale of Mississippi to prepare for war. We are indebted to the Vicksburg',Whig-'! for the fol lowing inventory of the "circumstances of war discovered lo be on hand:—Four flintlock muskets, all rusty, with no points: a pile of belts and scabb.irds, but no swords j fifty cartridge boxes." The "Whig" adds —"We now have 5 Major Generals, 10 Brig adier Generals and 60 Colonels, 60 Lieutenant Colonels. 09 Majors, and will soon have 600 Captains, 1200 Lieutenants, 1800 Sergeants and 4800 Corporals.

EPThe Washington correspondent of the New York Eveniitg Post, writing under the date of December 27, says lhal "The statement thai nothing will be done with the tariffthis session is considered erroneous. Those who know best about the matter are laboring lo prepare a bill, and Mr. Phelps, of the Committee of Ways and Means, thinks such a measure can be presented as will be satisfactory to the great manufacturing interests of ihe North—the iron interests of Pennsylvania —and yel meet the approbntion of ihe Southern free-traders. A prevailing idea seems to be to enlarge the free list and provide for specific duties on certain articles." f^The Richmond Enquirer says : "We do not believe that the African slave trade will eve.r be opened, either legally or illegally, with the Southern Slates. There is not, so far as we are informed, any respectable number of advocates in any ofth-eSoulhern Slales to form the nucleus, of a parly likely to be productive-of any action. But- these are ma...

^ EarThe United S:ales Mint hascoined another new cent which is expected to be issued shoitly, and, to our taste, is an improvement over the ' fish hawk" eagle which disfigures the nickel last issued, its place being taken by a neal likeness of an Indian maiden. The lettering on the old cent" and the wreath are in our opinion, handsomer than that of the new design. "e i Fi'OBM IlarB'lspairs'.

_ New Orleans, Dec 31.—Private advices have been received, which confirm, positively, the report that a squad of Americans are in Cuba, ready to aid the revolutionists. It is further stated that all have gone with regular passports. Washington, Dec. 31.—Late and direct intelligence from Havana reiterates that much excitement prevails there concerning tlm President's message, but affords no basis for the belief that a revolutionary movement is contemplated. The genera! tone of the advices is such as to warrant the assertion that the intervention of the French Government has not been requested for any purpose. While it is repeated that the authorities at Tampico have, through ihe efforts of the Captain General of Cuba, satitfied the claims of certain Spanish subjects (this being «n isolated case), the additional statement is made that the difficulties between the Government of Spain and that of Mexico, are in a fair way of an early adjustment.

Latest from the Filibusters : A schooner, which had arrived at Mobile from Ruatan, reports that the schooner which recently left Mobile with the filibusters had landed them successfully at Puerto Cabello, Honduras, and that they were preparing to cross the country to Leon, Nicaragua. A pary of rebels was in arms at Leon, awaiting the arrival of the filibusters to join them. A later dispatch, from Mobile, announces that the schooner Susan had been wrecked on a coral reef, sixty miles from Belize, and that one bun! ^J., ofh"; Pagers had returned to Mobile.

"Yellowplush, how old are yob?-"- interrogated Charley's friend, rather abruptly,.as he was reguiling himself with one. of his York county segars, and evidently at peace with himself and the world.

"Oh, well, you need'til b.: so huffy about it. Suppose I can ask a courteous question, without giving offense." "Do you call that a courteous question ? In my opinion, it is about as rude as even yon could form it. But I am not huffy, and lo prove that 1 am not. just lake a seal and let me teach you a les son on courtesy.

DEATHS On the 3nd inst, at- the Farmer's High School. Bernard McClain, aged 40 yeals Death, at all limes, casts, an impressive gloom over the neighborhood in which it occurrs, but when our intimate friends are struck down, and those with whom we have daily associated are carried to the grave, we feel a sorrow poignant for words to express. The subject of this brief notice was an inlirnate friend of the writer of this paragraph—and no One outside the circle of his family, can deplore his death more than we do. He was our friend, and as such he is worthy of our sincerest regret. He was no man's enemy and few men have had the grave to close over their remains, who left behind the memory of mote friendship, and the kind regards growing out of an honorable career. Itjs enough to say that Bernard McClain was an honorable man in his actions towards all men—that he was a sincere friend and a most devoted husband and father. Death might have spared him for a few years, for the sake of hi...
