Irr'csU in Clearfield Coantf.
TVe"h'ave notioed "some of-'iEe outrages
perpetrated in Clearfield county by subor
dinate government officials, by whom many
of the citizens of that county; have been' ar
rested .without authority of law, aad incar
ceraled in dniiyeons without any distinct
charge of crime, under the brdad pretext of
'military nece9ily,,, These arrests, we
learn on good authority, still continue.
Any loafer, professing "loyalty" and "pa
triotism," or 'Lincoluisaj," which is equiv
alent lo aJl the cardinal virtues, can avenge
a private grief against ene of the best citi
zensof lhe,coantyy,inveniing some story
to the prejudice of the offending party al-
tm6flt any ..(aje wilf answer .the purpose
anq wnipering in idq ears or a government
pimp, who is, it seems, clothed wi,ih the
awlul power of bearing, jodgir.g and deter
ininirg the conditions upon which the free
men of Clearfield fcball bold their rights of
person and property. :
i A statement has reached us in connec
lion with these outrages, which we record
with pleasure, ! andr sincerely hope may
! prove to bewell founded. It is that Gov!
Curti'h has; addressed a letter of remon
strance to the authorities at Vashington
against a continuance ; of these moimtrous
Crimes against. public liberty. Wa do not
propose to indulge ia, any comment upon
this 'atafement, Until Jujly assured of the
troth,. If it be .true. Governor Cunin has
won, honor more, lasting by such an act
than i any.that may be attached to the mere
occupancy of the gubernatorial chair; and
he will have made large progress in secur
ing for himself the respect and confidence
of "every Iawahiding citizen, every true
friend oT'epublican gove'timent not.onl in
(his 'Common ?ea;h, but throughout the
country. Ve are not over sanguine ; but
we confess that we are encouraged and
strengthened in ths hope that Gov. Curtin
has acted in this matter as becomes his
high posilioc, t'y a jecent act Pf hid that
has bur fullett approval, and endorsement.
We refer to his late alIe, manly, dignified
appeal to the President of the fjni'ed States
against his subordinates, who, as the Gov
ernor 'plainly and truthfully charges, are
acting, in the enforcement of the conscrip
tion, wholly regardless of the law. In that
letter Governor Curtin said that it was'hard
ly to be tolerated that "joar (the Prei
dent's) subordinate should be permitted
longer to pursue ihe' system of subs itoling
fotihe law an ecceninic plan of their own'?
There spoke the Governor of a mighty
sovereign State, not . the mere satrap of a
'despot. And as he thus in fitting terms re
fesked the violator of law in that case, may
we not hope that there is troth in the staie
meot that he has found stern words to con
demn the outrages in Clearfield ? Age. ',
1. W. Hartmak has received a letter from
Washington stating , thai a petition has been
sent lo Mr. Bopkalew, Irom this place ask
ing lor the pardon of John Ran'z, and that
among others his name is attached to it. He
pronounces it a forgery. We should like
jo know how many ether - names were af
fixed lo said petition ia .the same manner.
Repubiican. ; t
We give publicity to the above item cf
the Republican for- two purposes.' First to
call it a lie, and secondly to let' Mr. I. W.
Hartman have the benefit of -announcing
his malignant spirit toward John Ratrz. We
have reliable information from a gentleman j
who was one of the'principal parties o the !
petition above named; that j. W. Hartmati's !
name was uot attacbeJ to it, nor was he re- I
ques'ed to sign it.- .We cannot say that Mr.
Hartman d.d not receive a letter from Wash- j
ingtpn, but .we feel satisfied that if be did ',
the. letter was a.complete 'sell, wh-ch j
brought him out in a declaration of "for-'
gery,' thereby showing bis disposition of
hatred towards John Rantz and his many
friends ia this county. If he wishes to pro- -'
claim that he is unconditionally ia favor of !
tyranny and despotism, let bim continue to
desire the incarceration of John Rantz. who
was 'unlawfully confined in prison from the
first instant,' unlawfully brought to trial be
fore1 a Military Commission which had no
jurisdiction,' and therefore'ebnvicted without
due process of law and confined, under sen
tence not legal because , not obtained thro'
legal proceedings. .We say. if Mr. Hartman
desires notoriety, let him continue to pro
claim, through the organ of fanaticism, to
the people of Colombia county, that he de
spises a move -waich was originated by a
respectable citizen of this ton one who
sees the oppression of the administra'ion
and knows its wrong though he is a stern
member of the Republican, party. ' '

7 30 Loan.), Mr., Jay Cooke has been ap
poin ed as General Subscription , Agent by
the Secretary of tbe, Treasury. The ob
ject of the Secretary is to bring the - man

sue of gold-bearing' bonds; within their
present Jimijs for not less than three years
when the 7 30s will be convertible. Tbe
New ,York Examiner says ,
-.The .general rate, of interest is six per
cent., payable annually. This is seven and
tbree-ienths payable semi-annually. It yoa
lend on mortgage, there must be a search
ing of titles lawyers' .fees, stamp du'ies
and delays, and -yoa, will finally .have re
turned to you the same kind of money you
would receive from .the government and
less of it.' If you invest in this loan, you
have 00 trouble..-. Any bank or banker
will obtain it for yoa wi houl charge To
each note' or bond are. afSxed five ' con
pins" or interest rickets, doe at the expira
lion of each successive ball-year. The
bolder of a note has simply to ' cot off one
of these coupons, present it to ihe nearest
batik' or Government Agency, and receive
his interest the note . itself need not be
presented ! all. Or a coupon thus payable
will everywhere be equivalent, when due,
to money. If you wish to borrow ninety

Alter a call of the representatives pres
ent, on motion, a committee ot seven was
appointed to draft a series of resolutions
expressive of the sense of the convention ,
upon the repeal of. the duty upon priming

which were unanimously adopted :

trAerMS.'ihe. hih price of printing paper,
and the enhanced value of everything con
sumed by printers, have operated to raise
(he price of books and newspapers in tuch
a degree that a large portion of the read-
ing community can no longer afford to buy
the former or subscribe for the latter, and
have"in many cases caused the suspension
of the publication of newspapers, thus
placing a seriou obstacle in ihe way of the
dissemination ol wholesome reading, and
striking at the foundation ol our republican
system, - the intelligence ' of Ihe masses ;

General Shermane advance ha's , entered
Colombia, the Capital of South Carolina
The confederates yielded Ihe towrt without
any contest. On Tuesday of last week
General Sherman's advance was at Orange
burg,, eighteen mile- norrh." ..of the 'EJislo
river His iroops were being concentrated
at that place, and west of iL Gen. Howard
with the right flank of his army, wa at
Orangeburg on Wednesday, and Slocom,
with the left flank, was .twelve miles west
of Oranaebprg. Kilpairick was west of Slo
com with the Federal cavalry. The entire
lic-e moved lorward on Wednesday to at
tack Reauregard, who was posted behind
the swamps of the Congaree river, east of
Colombia On Thursday the Federal troops
reached the river opposite Columbia. There
are no swamps at that point and they suc
ceeded in throwing several shells - across
the river into the city. As there was no op
portunity for delense, Beauregard .deter
mined to abandon Columbia. On Thursday
night a large amount of stores was burned.
But a 6tna!l force of Confederates was in
the town, it being on the extreme western
' flank of Beauregard's army. During Thurs-
day a large body of Federal troops marched
up the Congaree, northwest of Columbia;
crossed the Saluda and Broad r'vers, and
several other shallow streams forming their
head waters, acd before daylight ' were on
the northern bank 6f the Congaree, but a
few miles from Columbia. At daylight
they marched down to the city. The Con
federate garrison retreated out of it before
them, and with scarcely a shot fired the
town changed possessors. Colombia being
captured, communication was at once open
ed with the Federal iroops on the opposite
side of the Congaree. The Confederate
garrison retreated east along the river bank,
and joined the main body. Beauregard'n
headquarters are supposed to be at Kings
viMe, on the "north side, of the Congaree,
twenty miles east of Columbia. It is ihe
point where the rsilroaJ from Branchville
to Columbia crosfes the river.
All the railroads connecting Charleston
(with the interior of South Carolina being
i now cnt a single line only remaining in
Confederate possession ; the one running to
Florence and thence northward-Charleston
I ceases to be of much military importance,
j and may be evacuated at at any lime ; for it
j wbald be foolishness to . fight a battle for
j possession. But it will not be evacuated
until the Federal troops reach its gates and
demand a surrender. Everything of valae
to the Confederacy is no doubt removed
from Charleston by this time, but a garri
son still remains there, that will not leave
until the Federal movements lorce them to
do so. No city is ever voluntarily aban
doned by its possessors until capture stares
them in the face.
General Terry, the Federal commander
at Fort Fioher, has been reinforced, but at
j the .earn time has teen virtualk relieved
