lo Mitchell, tho "much married" Unit
ed States Senator from Oregon, signs
an address to tho pooplo of the United
States containing words of encourage
ment fringed with golden promises of
good bobavior for tho future on the
part of tho Republican party. John
approaches very near a "Christian
Statosman" in tho matter of precept,
but liko tho bjlunco, is dreadfully loose
in his practice.
How is This? Wo notico that one
of tbo county Commissioners in Ve
nango county drew $1,088 ont of tho
Treasury tho past year as wages.
There wore but 313 working days last
year, and tho Commissioners aro al
lowed 83 per day In that county, (fifty
cents more than in Clearfield), which
would make but $939,001 Well, Ve
nango is a "loyal" comity, and wo pro
Biime men aro paid for Sunday work,
and the balanco, $149, is no doubt ap
plied to charitablo purposes.
What a Prrr? It is announced
that tho "clarion voico of Beechcr"
will not bo heard in tho pulpit for some
time, and tho rostrum will not be em
bellished with the manly form of "tho
Sainted Tilton" for an indefinite poriod.

A Watfr Siwt. A dispatch from
Eureka, Nevada, dated tho 25th, says
a terriblo water spout hurst up in the
monutnius on that day, and swept
through tho town, killing twenty por-

property. At Wells,in tho same State,
, about thirty foot of tho Central Pacific

biimting of a rain cloud, twonty-oight

causing great destruction of proporty,
but no live wore lost.

by the honest inquirer after truth that

Look at our National and State aflttirs.
Wo need not go bo far from home.
What is tho situation of Indiana coun
ty? Compare tho indebtedness, fraud
and peculations in that county with
ours. There tho court records estab
lish tho corruption of tho Radical offi
cials to a largo amount. Hero ui our
county we dure and defy any one to
charge that a single dollar has ovrJr
been corruptly taken out of tho County
Treasury. In tho former county, as
woll as in a number of othor Radical
counties, there still hangs a huge bounty
debt, while ours is canocllod. M istakc

have occurred and show us tho coun

best of our knowledge, and if tho Rad
ical leaders know of any, why do they
not point them out and send tho per
petrators thereof to koep coinany

It Is remarkable that those largo-
brained, Godly men, who stand nt the
head of the Radical party in this county,
fool their time away npon so small a
territory as Clearfield 'comity, when
two such lat-ge fields as tho Stato and
Nation are open for competition in the

started out to do by simply helping;
to band our Congressional, Judicial and
Senatorial districts and our oou nty over

Brazkn I mmtknob. The Radical
Address Issued by tho National Con

truth and more fitlakoods than were
ever embellished in a similar document
It has not ono word to say touching

issues of tho day arc left In tho dark,
and a few columns of lying mid point

they do, the foul corruptions that per

a party with "loftier aspirations," "wiser

elect honest men to Congrest this year,
They do not consider it necessary to

THE INSURANCE SXTS1XESS.
We have before us tho first annual

It will bo observed that tho pooplo
have paid tbeso companies nearly two
million dollars tho past year for tho
purposo'of protecting their property,
whilo they have receivod in return less
than twelvo hundred thousand dullai-s
fur losses, while $511,000, (nearly half
as much as was paid for losses) is con
sumed in Ralarie and expenses, and
$283,000, sticking in tho pockets or the
officer and agents.
If any man will pay us $20, or $2,000,
or $200,000, for tho protection of his
property during 1874, or any other
year, wo will enter into bonds to pay
bun back tbo one hulf of nil money at
the end of tho year should his house
bo burned down. That would be busi

And this loss ocelli's in one of the

ment and people of tho United Slates.
Yet, it seems not to be heeded. A far
worse method of depopulation is now
going on In South Carolina and Louisi
ana. What shower of tears have been
shed by Americans over tho political
wrongs of Ireland, yet tbo Irish people
have not suffered half tbo wrongs at
tho hands of the British government
that the pooplo of tho States named
have at the hands of the Washington
authorities. Tho agents of the former
government sent into Ireland aro gen
erally educated and understand their
duties, whilo the agents of the latter
sent to tho Mntos named are negroes,
carpet-bagger and Rcaluwags, of the
most venal and degraded stamp, one
of whom will consume more of tho real
products or a State in ono month than
an Englishman will in twelvo months.
Americans had better understand that
wo havo tho Greeks nt our own doom.
God knows that Ireland is governed
badly enough, but look at tho "free aud

Their wrongs aro four fold when con
trasted with thoso of tho Irish people.
