The lumbering business t Clearfield county, as all here know, is immense. ' Away from thosrt nl.iees with which the trade comes di rectly in contact, it is not known that the epo- rations of this business are felt in so wide a range, as is actually .the case. For ' instance, It is not generally known that the spars which are placed in the waters of the Susquehanna in the upper part of this county, are floated to Xorfolk, Virginia, or to Bangor, in the State f Maine ; aud yet this is really the case, and at cheaper rates, vi e believe, than they can be procured from anywhere cls. The ship and boat yards, and manufacturing mills of Phila delphia, Baltimore, Xew York, and other im portant points, receive large supplies of square timber, decking, keels, plank, &c, from onr lumbermen, and scarcely a wharf, bridge, or ImiUUng of any cons...

In the last issue of that sheet we find an article -which is evidently designed to serve the pur pose f proof; but which is really little else than a rcLash of stale arguments and absurd conjectures. The editor is a lawyer, and ought to know, if he does not, that he is of-f-'rliip no evidence at all that his own asser tions, suppositious and strained inferences can not be taken as proof against a person against whom he makes a charge.

Since , the commencement of the prevailing pressure in monetary afliiis through out the country, many speculations as to the cause which produced it, have been indulged in. One idea is, that the medium of traffic termed currency, is not only coin, bullion, Lank-notes, &c, but shares in stock compa nies, transferable from hand to hand, answer to a great extent the same purpose. If not actually received aud paid out as so much money, yet they frequently occupy the same relat'or; to currency that checks do to a bank deposit that ol being capable of being con verted into money on short notice. Many of the city merchants, dealers, &c, beside their deposits in banks, have been in the habit of keeping another reserve, bearing interest, in the shape of railroad and other stocks, upon which they relied as a means of raising mone...
