Douglas, in one of the last speeches he ever made in regard to . oar present troubles, ."That the shortest road to peace is tho most stupendous preparation for war, the more prompt and energetic the movement, and the more important it is in numbers, the shorter will be the druggie." In this spirit the government has been act ing; and in this spirit the majority of our cit izens of all parties have responded. The ob ject is to crush the rebellion in the Bhortest possible time. This is the n!y way to save bloodshed and give permanent peace. The great body of the people, both Democrats and Republicans, feel this to be the fact and talk and act accordingly. To compromise with trea son, or even parley w ith it, is to destroy the nation. Tho only way to treat the traitors Is to subdue and punish them. The poli...

II el 1 .1 lit J h. V. H i. CLEAEFIELD, JUNE 20, 1861. In the game of life, men frequently play the knave, and women the deuce. Most men have in their aoula no locomotives strong enough to draw a train of thought. Tradesmen often lose their custom as field .portsmen do their finger by high charges. The honrs are very fugacious, but an ex emplATj husband is careful to keep good ones. Navigators on ibe sea of life, if their voyage is a long one, generally have to send under bdrtpoit'- . Probably the men who can boast the posses, ion of the most varied and numerous gilts re tbe beggars.

Speed, Esq My dear Sir : The recent TerwhIuiiDg vote in favor of the Union, in Kentucky, has afforded unspeakable gratifica tion to all true men throughout the country. That rote indicates that the people of that gal lant State Lave been neither seduced by the arts nor terrified by the menaces of the revo lutionists in their midst, and that it is their fixed purpose to remain faithful to a Govern ment which, for now nearly seventy years, has remained faithful to them. Still, it cannot be denied that there is in the bosom of that State a band of agitators, who, though few in hum 'her, are yet powerful from the public confi dence they have enjoyed, and who bavo been, and doubtless will continue to be, unceasing i...

THE IF! BT SAMUEL J. ROW. CLEARFIELD, PA., JULY 3, 1861. THE CLEARFIELD BEPUBLICAIf AG A IK, , , The editors of the Clearfield 'Republican seem to think that somebody is annoyed by the course Of their paper. Pretty correct in one point of view. It is annoying for any ol our loyal citizens traveling abroad, to have a copj of the Clearfield Republican stuck under his nose, with the inquiry" as to whether that paper represents the people of his county, and whether they are all secessionists up there ? Such things sometimes occur ; and under the circumstances a loyal Cloarfield man leels both annoyed and disgraced, by the fact that such a sheet is published in bis county. : The ruling passion of the editors of that pa per is, an intense hatred of tho Republican party, and it seems to afford them an especial - delight to misrepresent Lincoln and Greely. Their last paper, for instanco, has an article in it for the second time ; purporting to show that Lincoln in 1848 made "a speech, in wh...

Two elections have been lately held to fill vacancies in Congress; one in the Luzerne district to fill the Vacancy caused by the death of Mr. Scranton, and one in Philadelphia to fill the vacancy cansed by the resignation of Mr. Morris.

the .BAFT laftsman's Journal. BY SAMUEL J. ROW. CLEARFIELD. PA.. JULY IT, 1861. THE QUESTION. Union or disunion, is the great question be fore the country, and it must now be decided. If this infamous rebellion is allowed to suc ceed, we have disunion and our national pros perity is gone forever. But if the rebellion is promptly and decisively crushed, our name and power as a nation will be increased, rather than diminished ; for such a result would show that we are able, not only to resist attacks from without, but also to put down the most widespread rebellion at home,- that the world ever knew. On this great question there can be only two parties; those who want the government to overcome rebellion, and those who want rebel lion to overcome the government and divide the Union. Those who side with rebellion are ot two classes ; first are the armed rebels and traitors, who claim that the Union is al ready dissolved and that they no longer bold any allegianco to it. They are chiefly...
