So, when the bright, brief flame is quenched, : A deeper darkness falls ; So, of thoe dreams, the waking hour Saddens, if not appals. Whil yet the spring of buoyant life .- Is bounding on ;he breast, And hope and faith too credulous, In their wild dreams ore blest, , A magic spell, a witard charm, teems o er all nature cast, Ever the brighter that they are, Too beautiful to last. ' They rise, they shine, they fade, they die, And leave no trace behind ; Is there no powr to seize the joy, " To chain it to the mind ? ' ' The flowret droops, the sweet song ends, The sunshino leaves the lea; tut tho' the present charm is gone, , It lives in memory. O'er pleasant fields, through noble woods, Our earlier footsteps stray ; Tcrchance the path we tread but leads To deeper shad...

U U it 7tf 1 ! t r t fc- S. B. ROW, Editor asp Proprietor. CLEARFIELD, PA , JUNE 17, 1857. THE HIGH PRICE OF LIVING. Our city coteuiporari.es are complaining much of the greatly enhanced cost of air the necessaries ot life. Meats, vegetables, bread, coffee, and sugar, are all at most extravagant prices, and it is difficult, for the laboring man to supply the wants of his family from the wa ges he earns. Here, in Clearfield, we feel it as sensibly as it ia possible to be felt anywhere. Ia reply to an inquiry, a few days since, as to the price of flour, we were told that sellers asked "eleven dollars a barrel, or five dollars and a half a hundred." AVe have been watch ing the market reports, and nowhere has flour reached such enormous prices as with us. In .New York, Philadelphia and PPtsburgb, it Las been selling at from S" to SS,jO, as per quality. We incline to tire belief that the un usual heighth of prices is owing in a great de gree to speculation in produce, for wo do not think...
