A Clerk in a mercantile establishment writes to his friend at home : "I have a plagucy easy time or it now-a-days very little work to do our firm don't advertise."

A clergyman once prefaced his service with "my friends, let us say a' few words before we begin." , This is about equal to the gentleman who took a short nap before he went to sleep.

JOHN PATTON. 1 1 In the present extremity of the coun fry, the people of the "Wild-cat' District" have good reason to be . thankful that they have such an efficient and reliable Representative in Con gress, as the one whose name heads this par agraph. At Washington , City, Gen. Patton enjoys an enviable reputation that of being an active, energetic, straight-forward man,who means work, not talk, and who has accom plished more than any new, and quite as much as some of the old Members. . On ' the great question of the day, be has no concealments to make. The preservation of the Union and the maintenance of the Constitution he regards as paramount objects. In the language of an eminent and popular military officer, he fiolds that "the Government must go on, and what ever is in the way of its progress must get out of it or abide by the consequences."

the if! CLEARFIELD, JAN. 29, 1862. Defeated Plot to Resder our Catalrt asd Artillery Useless. On Thursday night the 16th, between eight and nine o'clock, while the army of the Potomac was enveloped in a dense fog, a mysterious occurrence took place in some of our divisions across the river. It was ascertained that the halters of many of the horses in the 1st New York cavalry regi ment in Gen. Franklin's division ; of the 8th Illinois cavalry regiment in Gen. Sumner's division, and ol the batteries, were cut, the horses running loose all over the encamp ments. Upon examination it was found that the baiters had been cut with sharp knive's, and that several individuals must have been engaged in the business.. The 1st New York cavalry had nearly two hundred horses cut loose, five or six of which have been lost. It is believed that there was some secret plan on foot the successful execution of which would have redounded to the benefit of the rebel). It is said that a demonstration on our...

Eira Jovbsal: In the bill of war ru 'jnora, which has been experienced fo some weeks, with the exception of the stirring event in Kentucky, the people of this goodly . city iave got up quite an excitement on what is known as "The Pickled Slush Question." It seems the street railway companies are in the habit of using salt to remove the snow from the tracks, which produces, as a matter of course, an intolerable slash. This, it is con tended by the anti-salt party, is productive ef diphtheria, colds, wet feet and other miseries of a like nature that the mixture of salt with snow freezes horses' feet, and is thus, not only expensive to owners, but destructive of large numbers of horses. The railway men have brought into the controversy a number ot ,yhysicfans,and the papers are filled with learned ...

A correspondent of the Cincirnati Commercial, in firing a de scription of the battle of Mill Spring, makes use of the following language, which will serve to show how gallantly the Union forces fonght on that occasion : "The Tenth Indiana went into the woods about a quarter of a mile in advance of their tents, to the support of their pickets, and bravely did they . support them, too, for over half an hour, against the whole force led against them ; and never le treated a step, nor give an inch of ground, until nearly surrounded by overwhelming numbers ; then, to save themselves from be ing entirely surrounded, they unwillingly gavo way. Here was a crisis ; and yell on yell went tip from the lantern-jawed Secessionists , they thought the day was their own. But, happily, any disastrous consequence was prevented by the arrival of the Fourth Kentucky and Ninth Ohio, to the support of the gallant Tenth. Again our men ...

kftsmnn's frontal. BY SAMUEL J. ROW. . CLEARFIELD, PA., FEB. 12, 18G2. EXPULSION OF SENATOR EBIGHT. - Last Wednesday, January the 5tb,the U. S. Senate, by a vote of 32 yeas to 14 naya, ex pelled Jesso D. Bright, U. S. Senator from the State ol Indiana, for disloyal conduct. Viewed in its personal aspects, it is said to have boen one of the most solemn and affect ing scenes ever witnessed in the Senate Chamber. Every eye of the concourse of spectators was fixed on the man, who, after serving seventeen years in the capacity of Senator, was to be expelled for encouraging, if not being guilty of, one of the most henious offences known to the laws. Tbo expulsion of Mr. Bright must not, however, be looked up on as amounting to a conviction of treason, as was contended by some of those who weie opposed to tha resolution. The simple ques tion was, whether Jesse D. Bright, after wri ting the letter he did to Jeff. Davis, was a fit person to perforin the duties devolving upon him in bis repre...

THE IMTlilMre mm mm CLEARFIELD, FEB. 12, 1862. p Washington, Feb. 5. The flag of truce from rebeldom corered an impudent demand, aach as should not be countenance in honor able warfare. The message is said to hare been from Jeff. Davis to President Lincoln, announcing that, it the Federal Government permit the rebel bridge burners to be hung, under the order of Gen. llalleck, that tho Federal prisoners Cols. Corcoran, Lee, Wil cox and others, held as hostages for the safe ty of the pirates, shall be immediately hung in retaliation. A Cabinet meeting was called to consider the subject, but I am roquested not to announce the result. Jeff. Davis will learn soon enough. It is probable that the news of the recent order of tho War Depart- , ment directing the pmateersmen to be re garded as prisoners of war had not reached rebeldom, when this last message was sent from Richmond. The sentiment expressed by those who know the purport of the message is, that the officer who brought it, thereb...
