That wondrous book, whose leaves are the etratas of rocks, waited six thousand years lor readers. A woman, in a New York paper gives no tice that she is willing to take a respectable baby to nurse. Most of the secessionists say there isn't any U S. Government. Those in Fort Lafayette think there is. Some bachelors go to war because they like fighting ; and some married men go because they like peace. "What are the "Fortunes" of War ?

By reference to our column of War News on the first page of to-days Journal, it will be seen that General Fremont has been recalled from the command of the Western Military Department. The news created great excitement in the army, and many of the officers expressed their in tention to resign, and many of the soldiers threw down their arms and declared that they would fight under no one but ' Fremont. Through the urgent solicitations of General Fremont all, however, remained.

jm rafts mm CLEARFIELD, NOV. 13, 1861. A pretty face attracts a good heart gener ally secures. The mind, like the eye, sees all things rath er than itself. A bad wound may heal ; bat a bad name is almost sure to kill. Let children honor their parents, and their parents will honor them. . Many men lite miserably and meanly, just to die majniflcently and rich. If o man can leave a better legacy to the world than a well-educated family.

We apprehend that tho project of colonizing the negroes will be' found open to more objections thaa occur at first sight.
