On lact Thursday afternoon, whilst the Sheriff' was in attendance at the Court House, the prisoners in our conn- ! ty Jail made an attempt to break out. They Succeeded in divesting themselves of nearly all their "jewelry" and doubtless would hare "effected their escape if they bad not been op- j portnnely discovered. Our jail is a poor concern, and it is a matter f surprise to us that prisoners can be kept in It at all. It Is a waste of money to fix it np. What is needed is a new prison. ...

mm For the "Rafsts man's Journal." THE FLOWER. BTJOHSSY. O, the charms, the charms that Nature has !" Behold the beautiful flower! These were the words which were almost unconsciously poken as I was one day walking along a well beaten path in a musing mood. My eye had caught sight of a beautiful boqnet, which had been formed by the delicate and tasteful hand f nature. Hard by the wayside it stodd, in the open wood. It looked so lovely, so charm ing, that it was almost impossible to resist the temptation of stopping to feast one's eyesight on its rare bcanty. I looked around, and, lo ! It seemed companionless. No others of its own kind graced the lonely spot. I said, a lone, all alone ; but catching myself, as a Toice seemed to whisper, 'my companions are the shrubbery of the fields of na!ure and the tall oaks of the forest." The rock-oak, which had mocked the rage of many a wintery storm, waved gently in the summer breeze, above its head. The pines of the surrounding hillocks ung in...

When Eve had led her lord away, And Cain had killed his brother, The stars and flowers, the poets eay, Agreed with one another, : To cheat the cunning tempters art, And teach the race its duty, By keeping on its wicked heart Their eyes of light and beauty. A mill ion sleepless lida, they say, . Will be at least a warning ; And so the flowers would watch by day, The' stars front eve to morning. On hill and prairie, field and lawn, Their dewy eyes npturning. The flowers still watch from red'ning dawn Till western skies are burning. .Alas! each hour of daylight tells A tale of shame so crushing. That some turn white as sea-bleached shells, And some are always blushing. But when the patient stars look down ' On all their light discovers The traitor's smile, the murderer's frown, The lips of lying lovers They try to shut their saddening eyes, And in the vain endeavor, We see the...

T Hi Raftsman's ournal 8. B. HO'.', EDITOR AND PROPRIETOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., DEC. 2, 1857. THE KANSAS QUESTION. On last Wednesday, the 25th ult., Governor "Walker," of Kansas, arrived in Washington City. On the following day he had an inter view with President Buchanan. Walker's op position to the Kansas Constitution is not founded on the Slavery clause, but on the re fusal of the Convention to permit the people to vote on it. This lie regards as a violation of the Federal Constitution, of the Kansas Nebraska bill, of Popular Sovereignty, and the rizhts of self-government. The President Is represented as feeling" himself bound to sus tain the action of the Kansas Constitutional Convention, whatever it may have been, if the Convention was authorized by Congress, and the Cabinet are said to be united in favor of sustaining its action. It is thought that open hostility is inevitable between the President and Walker. A correspondent of the N. . Times says "Walker has never yet seen the C...

AGRICULTURAL. Keeping Potatoes is "Winter. Potatoes spoil in winter, if buried, from three causes. First and greatest, want of ventilation. Sec ondly, and nearly allied, dampness. Thirdly, and more rare, freezing. Farmers find most of their potatoes spoiled at the top of tho heap; where they suppose they became frozen; but this is not the nsual cause, the damp, foul, steamy air ascended there, and could not es cape, and this spoiled them. A hole made in the top, with a crowbar, and closed with a wisp of straw, would have allowed egress to the confined air, and saved the potatoes. The best way to seenre potatoes out-door, is to take large heaps, say 50 or 60 bushels ; see that they are dry and clean, by digging before wet weather comes on ; cover them all over with one foot of packed straw, and three Inches of earth. The straw will prevent damp ness, and the lew inches of earth will favor ventilation. A farmer who raises many pota oes, and practices this mods, dozs uot los3 a peck, o...

True, we have a great many educational paper?, jour nals, and periodicals; but how very few find their way to the home ot the needy, especial ly so in rural life. Then how necessary that every opportunity should be embraced, and every means laid hold of to support the best interest of our happy people.

Robert J.Walser, in a letter to the Secretary of State, tinder date of Dec. 15th, resiamed the Governorship of Kansas. He says that he was pledged to the people of Kan sas to oppose by all lawful means the adoption of any Constitution which was fairly and fully submitted to their vote, and that as the posi tion assumed by the President in Lis message, and in instructions recently issued, would em barrass him in carrying out those pledges, his only course is to resign. He holds that the LecomptoD Constitution was a vitally defee tire body : that, as in nineteen counties there was no census, and in fifteen out of the thirty four no registry, a very large proportion of the people of Kansas were entirely disfranchised, having, by no fault of their own, no Represen tatives from those counties in that body.
