Raftsman's fmmtal. r S. B. ROW, Editor asd Proprietor. CLEARFIELD, PA., NOV. 26, 1856. WHAT THE SOUTH EXPECTS. Immediately after it was known that James Buchanan bad received sufficient electoral rotes to make him the next President, the leading papers of his party at the South threw out intimations of what their section of the Union exDected of him. At first, their sug gestions were made cautiously and guardedly; but soon they were expressed more boldly and unequivocally. The Richmond Enquirer seem ed to take the lead in this matter, and a mere hint from it that a revival of the slave trade ,..would be acceptable to the South, was follow ed by an open avowal on the part of the Char leston, South Carolina, Standard, New Orleans Delia, and other prominent journals, that this obnoxious trade must be resuscitated. Simul taneous with this unequivocal announcement, the first named paper gave Mr. Buchanan his orders relative to his appointments that as N. York had done nothing for him, he...

GOOD-BYE. gome words may often touch the heart, Home oft create a sigh ; But none more meaning can impart, Than one fond last 'good-bye.'', 'Good-bye !" an aged mother said Unto the infant son; A word of prayer, a tear was shed O'er that sweet angel one.

EThere are some facts connected with the late Presidential contest, and the attitude of the forces opposed to Locofocoism, in Penn sylvania, winch it may not be inappropriate to allude to n(tw,whcn all can consider them with a fair degree of placitude. In the latter part of the campaign, as will be remembered, the Impression was attempted to be created that Mr. Fillmore was the only available candidate against Buchanan that the former would car ry a majority of the Southern States that X. Jersey, New York, and other northern States were certain for hicu and that Fremont did not stand the ghost of a chance. Whether these declarations were the offspring of honest opinions, or whether the persons who made them were actaated by individual interest or sinister motives, are problems which we do not now propose to solve; all we have to sav j 1 v ' - on th...

Still there was no barm in poshing Mr. Fill more in the South if be was willing to place himself in the breach, but it was madness to attempt to stem the resistless torrent of the FreeSoil sentiment of theNorth, where almost with one accord the people had for two years determined to averfge the cause of Free Labor and Free Speeeh against the aggressions and assaults of Southrons. It was worse than mad ness to push Fillmore and Fremont to each other's disadvantage in the North. Each should have been pushed to the other's advan tage, and both with a single eye to the defeat of Buchanan. But while Fremont was not ur ged to the injury of Fillmore the Fillmore presses were found assuming attitudes of the . most fatal hostility to Fremont, and ...

We perceive that controversy concerning its future domestic institutions was inevitable ; that no tumin prtidense, no form of legisla tion, no wisdom on the part of Congress, could have preferred this.

A cotemporary ex presses the belief tLat the small clique of pol iticians who, by keeping up a division among the. forces opposed to Locofocoism, secured this State for Buchanan, and thus elected him, have only partially carried out their purpose that they will attempt to play off the same game in the approaching Gubernatorial con test, at which they succeeded but too well in the late Presidential campaign. These trick sters, it would seem, are now busily engaged finding fault with men, prominent in both the American and Republican ranks, who are likely to be candidates, for what purpose can readily be judged : if they are not preparing excuses to oppose the candidates of the Oppo sition, no matter who they are whether they are pure Americans or pure Republicans, or compromise candidates then we will acknowl edge that the conduct of men is sometimes de ceptive.
