The People's County Convention, which as sembled In this place last Friday, was one of the largest and most respectable gatherings of the kind that has ever convened ia Clearfield. The proceedings were marked throughout by great unanimity, harmony and enthusiasm. The position taken by the Convention, in re gard to National and State candidates, is plain and unequivocal. Anything short of a free and fnll endorsement of Lincoln, Hamlin, and Curtin, would have been moral cowardice, and would, beyond all doubt, have operated against the whole ticket.

HIDDEN EMOTIONS There is no heart but has its inner anguish ; There is no eve but hath with tears been wet ; There is no voice but hath been heard to languish O'er hours of darkness it can ne'er forget. There is no cheek, however bright its ro3es, But perished buds beneath its hues are hid ; No eye that in its dewy light reposes, But broken star-beams tremble 'neath its lid. There is no lip, howe'cr with laughter ringing, However light and gay its words may be, But it hath trembled at some dark upspringing Of stern affliction and deep misery. We all are brothers in this land of dreaming. Yet hand meets hand, and eye to eye replies, Nor dream wc that beneath an eye all beaming, The flower of its life in broken beauty lies. Oh ! blessed light that gilds our night of sorrow, Oh ! balm of gilead, fur our healing found ; Veknow that peace will come with thee to-morrow And that afflictions spring not from the gro...
