And wondering at the question, said, "I rise to seek the light." . 1 asked the eagle why his wing To ceaseless flight was given, As if he spurned each eartly thing, And knew no home but heaven ! -lie answered, as he fixed his gaze, Undaxzled at the sight, I'pon the Sun's meridian blaze, "I rise to seek the Light.'1 I asked my soul.

At Stowe, Vt., there are five factories in which starch is made from potatoes. Each consumes about 20,000 bushels per annum, and eight pound of starch is the yield of each bushel.

A ' s. b. now, etiitor ad proprietor. CLEARFIELD, PA., MARCH 20, 1861. - ;; I TOLD YOU SO. There arc men in every, community who consider it the very acme of wisdom to use the cant, threadbare expression 'I told you so' whenever an event happens which a crude o pinion of theirs, fonn.led on no sufficient data, may have predicted. It is a species of self glorification, harmless in itself, but some times irritating to men of mature judgment who are accustomed to reason lrom cause to eflectand weigh well every step they intend to take. Although in ninety-niue instances such either fall short of or overshoot the mark, should one accidental shot drive the center it makes them, in their own estimation, deposi tories of all the wisdom and sagacity of the age. Such a lucky circumstance dilates the gdal to the massive proportions of the mam moth. Such men arc occasionally officious intermeddlers, but their meddling being caus ed by the union of a weak intellect with a kind disposition, the o...

For many years these men have ruled the Democratic party, and have used its organization as a mere machine for advancing their purposes. When the party nominates a northern candidate for the Presidency they contrive that be shall be a Pierce or a Bu chanan, whom they can mould and sway as they please. Thus having the organization of the party and the President they calculated, and very correctly too, that tbey could con trol the whole party. And their success was great.
