He brought his whole family in a two horse wagon, .lie still belieTed that General Taylor was Presi dent, and wanted to know ii the "Kamschat kians" had taken Cuba, and If so where they had taken it. He had sold his corn for twen-ty-flr cents, the price being thirty-one ; but upon going to deposit the money, they told him It was mostly counterfeit. The only hard- money he had was some three cent pie ces, and those some sharper had "run on him" for half dimes! His old lady smoked a "cob pipe," and would not believe that anything else could be used.

' The editors of the Clearfietd Republican, in their issue of May 8th, endeavored to convict us of Treason, and volunteered to "swear point blank" that our assertion waa not true. In their last issue they, however, shift position, and instead of Treason, try to convict us of 'Misprison of Treason." Oar offence con sists in publishing a ues item, in which it is said,' "It is reported, that quite a number of strong sympathisers with the Southern traitors are still in our midst." And again, "Traitors there are in our land." How, the wonderful ly comprehensive, and acute and penetrating minds of the editors of the Republican, have enabled them to construe the words "in our Midst" and "in onr land," to mean, "our town" Clearfield Borough and by a leap of Imagination we are guilty of "communicating information to them," i. e. the enemies of ourtountry.

It appears that much dissatisfaction exists at the miser able way in which the Pennsylvania troops have been supplied with clothing and food un der our State authorities. The blankets and clothing, according to accounts, have many of them been cheap, flimsy, rotten 6tuff ; al most ready to tall to pieces. The shoes have, In some cases, been pasted together or the soles filled with pine shavings. In truth, it is said that the .Pennsylvania troops are the most miserably clad, of all volunteers called into the service j and, after all, the State has to pay more for it, than the cost of uniform clothing of the first quality. Making full al lowance for exagerations, we are still con vinced that there has been some mismanage ment and fraud somewhere. It is a burning disgrace to our State, and especially to the State officers who have the control of this thirg, that it is so. Some corrupt men hav...

The immediate wanta of the National treasury, having been supplied by the recent Joan, the government can look about at leisure to see what is to be done next. The fact, that a Stock which will be worth 10 per cent premium in a few months, having bserj taken at a discount of 15 per cent, is a ttrong argument against any more dealings of that sort ; and, it Is now suggested, that an ap peal be made direct to the Popular Masses, for a loan of one hundred millions of dollars. It is thought that this sum could be raised in duo time, and on far better terms, than the last loan, if proper means are employed and proper inducements held out. The recent ex perience of France in the agony of the Crime an War is most instructive and encouraging, when it'is remembered that $150,000,000 were eagerly and readily loaned to that government in a crisis of general depression, by the work ...

CLEABFIELD, JUNE 12, 1861. There are some human tongues which &ve two sides, like that of a certain quadrupeds, one smooth, the other very rough. Ohio has prepared for an army of 100 000 men one thousand companies of one hundred men each as a reserve lorce for the war. II the league of friendship is once broken, the cabinet of secresy is unlocked and loving confidences fly wildly about like uncaged birds. The wheat and corn crops of Tennessee, it is stated, promises to be very abundant. Many persons are plowing up cotton and planting corn. The farmers of Ohio are putting in seed of Chinese sugar cane, for the purpose oi having a supply of molasses, and sugar independent of the South. - A writer called at his printer's and accused the compositor of not having punctuated his poem, when the typo earnestly replied, "I'm not a pointer, I'm a setter."
