BY S. B. KOW. CLEABFIELD,J WEDNESDAY, AUGUST-20, 1856. VOL. 3.E0. 1. From the Dublin University Magazine. A maid reclined beside a stream,- At fall of rammer day. And half awake and half adream, She watched the ripples piny ; She marked the waters fall and heave, The deepening shadows throng, And heard, as darkened down the ere, The river's babbling song ; And thus it sung, with thinking tongue, That rippling, shadowy river -Touth's brightest day will fade away, Forever and forever !" The twilight past, the moon at last Rose broadly o'er the night. Each ripple gleams beneath her beams As wrought in silver bright. The heaving waters glide along, But mingling with their voice, The nightingale now pours his song, And makes the shades rejoice. And thus he sung, with tuneful tongue, That bird beside the river "When youth is gone, true love shines on, Forever and forever!" TIIE SEVEN LOST BRIDES. A 1EGESD OF SEW ORLEANS.

u JU the mwmmmmmmmu COL. FREMONT'S RELIGION. Some of the newspapers have started the re port and it has been industriously circulated, with a view to injure the peoples candidate fvr the Presidency, that he is a catholic. "A lie will travel ten leagues, while truth is putting on her boots;" but the annexed fctatt-ment, made br Mr. Nelson, a gentleman who was raised and educated with Fremont, will fully arrest this falsehood. It was published in the New York Times of the 21st of July last, and is as follows : "In the Morning Express of Saturday, Mr. Brooks asserts that Col. Fremont received his education in a Konian Catholic Institute, in Charleston, S. C, under the late Bishop Eng land. Although opposed to the party which nom inated him in justice to himself and the mem ory of his mother I brand those assertions as utterly false from beginning to end.

BY S. B. ROW. YOL. 3.-NO. 4. CLEARFIELD, WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 1856, THE I'NION TORBVER. Terish the band that would destroy The temple of our eircs ! Perish the heart that hopes for Joy . In its consuming fires ! Let not the monster be forgot, Who dares to light the flame, But curse him with a traitor's lot, And with a traitor's name ! Our fainting hopes refuse to die, Our tottering bulwarks stand, And Freedom's banner still floats high O'er a united land ! The stars that gem the azure fold - May cease awhile to shine : But tremble not, the arm that holds The flagstaff is Divino ! While the dark raven bodes despair, And still onr fear renews, The noble eagle, high in air, His onward way pursues, lie dreads not there the tempest's wrath, Though all its thunders roll : Cut soars above the tempest's path, Exalting to the goal.

THE E&FTS rers. Labor became subservient to capital, and the laborer almost a slave, and the capi talist almost his master. Ireland poured out its exodus or laborers ; and now behold the la boring men of that country earning the com forts and even the luxuries or life, and you see the effects of the depletion of overburdened ranks of labor. Go to China. This system has been in operation there, and again the rruth of this position has been demonstrated. There has been no emigration ho seeking of new homes no interest of the soil ; and the people, denied emigration, have been filling up and thickening year by year, until they Jiave become, as I have already remarked, one mass of degradation, poverty, ignorance and crime ; and now depletion at length takes place, by selling them as slaves to the West Indies and this Continent. Is there any man in the North who wishes to see this state of things here ? Are we ready to dedicate all that vast territory to the negro? If it were dedicat...

fit mft mmmm SPEECH OT EX-GO V. iEEDES. We take up a large portion of our paper thin week with the speech of Ex-Go v. Keedcr, of Kansas, delivered recertly at the Tabernacle, Jew Tork. It is a plain', unvarnished state ment of fact?, which should be well pondered by every voter in the whole country. .We, therefore, would ask every one, whether you are an American, Republican, Democrac,Whig or anything el6e, to read it it won't hurt vou. WHAT DOES IT HEAN I Under this head, the Lewistown Gazette states that a couple individuals visited Mifflin county, for the purpose of teaching Americans now to vote, and advised a council that the only course to pursue was to stick to Fillmore or vote for Buchanan ! This comes up to what we mentioned some weeks ago, that there are individuals who, whilst pretcuding to be A rucrienns, are r.cally for Buchanan, and are acting thus hypocritically for the purpose of betraying true men into the hands of their Locofoco enemies.

(i BUCM&I AID LOW WAGES ! ' On the 22nd January 1840, Jlr. Buchanan made a speech in the United States Senate, (vide Congressional Globe, for Jan. 1810, pp-135-6, or Niles' Eegister vols. 67 and C8,) in which the following passages occur : "In Germany, where the currency i3 purely metalic, and the cost of everything is EEurc ed to a bard money standard, a piece of broad cloth can be manufactured for fifty do!lars,tlie manufacture of which, in our country from the expansion of paper currency would cost one hundred dollars. What is the consequence 7 The foreign French and German manufacturer imports this cloth into our country and sells it for a hundred. Does not every person per ceive that the redundancy of our currency is equal to a premium of one hundred per cent, in favor of the manufacturer. Xo tariff of protection, unless it amounted to prohibition, could counteract these advan tages in favor of foreign manufactures. I would to heaven that I could arouse the atten tion of ev...
