8. B. ROW, BDITOB AMD PROPRIETOR. CLEARFIELD, PA., DEC. 1, 1858. PROTECTION TO AMEBIC AS INDUSTRY. The recent election established, we think, one thing that the people of Pennsylvania want their Laboring Interests adequately pro tected. Under the workings of tho "progres aire free trade"jolicy of tho so-called Demo cratic party, nearly every branch of Industry, especially the Iron business and Coal trade, were immeasurably injured, and there is no dobt of this fact having had much to do with bringing about the defeat of the Administra tion forces in the late contest in this State. With this emphatic expression of the wishes of the people of his own State before him, it was to be hoped that Mr. Buchanan would, in his forthcoming message, recommend a return to the protective policy, which, it is true, he had more recently eschewed, but which as a U. S. Senator he advocated in 1842. In this expectation, however, it seems we are likely to te disappointed. Washington letter wri ten say i...

Tit :ftJMm8IMra'43mHA! For the "Raftsman's Journal." V- WHAT IS EDUCATION 1 This Is & question that is often asked, and nearly as often improperly answered. It is Tery evident, to every candid observer, that there are wrong impressions prevalent in re gard to this subject. Any who doubt this as sertion, to be convinced of its truthfulness, only need mingle with the masses of the peo ple, for a short time, and converse with them on the . subject of education. Every man seems to have his own peculiar ideas about what constitntes an education. And it is per fectly right, in this land ot freedom, for every man to enjoy his own opinion ; but a person who has the happiness ol thinking as he pleas es, should be very careful that be thinks right that he comes to correct conclusions before he establishes himself in his opinions. On subjects of minor importance it is not so ne cessary thai all see, think and act alike, bet on a subject so momentous as Education it is highly important that...

Considerable discussion has recently been .going on in the newspapers as to the probabil- - lty of effecting a complete and substantial .union of tbe Opposition to the Buchanan De . mocracy in the canvass of 1800. Several pro positions have been made one asking the Re publicans to discard their distinguishing name and to abandon their most prominent idea, and another suggesting that tbe Americans should -drop their organization and throw aside the main feature of their platform. Neither of these, as a matter of course, are practicable, because there are men in both wings of the Opposition who would not submit to an entire obliteration of their principles, though all aro doubtless willing to make fair and reasonable concessions. The X. Y. Tribune, of a recent date, bas an articlo on tbe subject, which it concludes with the following proposition : That...
