BY S. B. ROW. VOL. 4.-ArO. 19. CLEARFIELD, PA., "WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 30, 1857. "THE WIND AND STREAM." A brook came stealing from the ground : You scarcely saw its silver gleam Among the herbs that hung around The borders of the winding stream. A pretty stream, aplaeid stream, A softly gliding, bashful stream. A treeze came wandering from the sky, Light as the whispers of a dream ; lie put the overhanging grasses by. And gayly stooped to kiss the stream. The pretty stream, the flattered stream, The bhy yet unreluotant stream. The water as the wind passed o'er. Shot upward many a glancing beam, Pimpled and quivered more and more, And tripped along a livelier stream. The flattered stream, the simpering stream, The fond, delighted, silly stream. Away the airy wanderer flew To where Use fields with blossoms teem, To sparkling springs aud rivers blue, And left alone that little stream. The flattered stream, the cheated stream, The sad, forsaken, lonely stream. That careless wind no more c...

The G.'obe, a Demo cratic paper in Huntingdon county, which is not wilting to comply with the r.ew demands of the Slave Power as made in the Lecompton Constitution, is quite severe on him. It pub lishes, among other things, the following cx tract, italics and all, from Bigler's speech at Huntington last summer, in answer to one from J edge Wilmot : t; We claimed that the Democracy were more the friends of 'Free Kansas,' because they wished to have her people perfectly free to se lect all their domestic institutions."
