CLEARFIELD, PA.. DEC. 12, 1860.
We print in onr paper to-day the most Im
portant parts or President Buchanan's last an
nual message. True to the slave power, the
Old Public Functionaiyi tries to throw the
blame of the present agitated condition of the
country upon the North.. In this connection,
lio asserts that "the long-continued and intern
pcrate interference of the Northern people with
the question of slavery in the Southern States,
has at length produced its natnral effects."
Who does not know that this is false 7 If
there had been any 'intemperate interference,',
during the last eight years, at least, it would
only prove that Mr. Buchanan nnd his Demo
cratic predecessor were ctoo weak to perform
their sworn duty. ' The secession movement,
however, is not the result of such "interfe
rence" as the President refers to it is the di
rect offspring of the treasonable dogmas that,
tor the last quarter of a century, have been
propagated by Southern Disunionists, and fed
and encouraged by doughfaces at the' North.
There are other glaring misrepresentations in
she oiessago, which the intelligent reader will
discern as readily as this one. Whilst tho
President holds that no State has a right to
secede, he says the Constitution confers upoii
Congress no power to coerce her Into submis
sion if she does withdraw from the Union ; by
which ho probably means that South Carolina
lis no right to secede, but if she does, he has
no right to prevent her. Gen. Jackson took
altogether a different view of the matter, and
soon put a stop to the Disunion movement in
ftis-day. The President says it would be easy
to settle the slavery question forever, by siru
4ly letting the Slave States alone and permit
ting them to manage their domestic institu
tions in their own way ; and yet, In the face of
this, he proposes certain "explanatory amend
ments" to the Constitution, which would make
it just what the South wants, a slavery expand
ing instrument, and would also go far towards
justifying the President's part in the Lccomp
ton iniquity. That seems to be Mr. Buchan
an's idea of "letting the Slave States alone."
A portion of his views on the Tariff, and the
god word he says for the famishing people to
Kansas, are redeeming features in the mes
sage. But, as a whole, It is unsatisfactory to
all parties, unless the Secessionists can draw
ncouragoment from it. This even, it would
seem, depends upon a, contingency, fur Wig
111, oi ioxhs, says the more he reads the
uesage the less he comprehends it.
Joiixsox, of the Mansion House, did a good
thing one day last week. Having purchased a
couple flue turkeys and given directions to
:have thrm served up for dinner, he called at
our office and invited us to assist at eating
!.im a branch of domestic science in which
we are proficient. At tha appointed hour we
were on hand, and found present, besides the
lever fellows who board there," several gentle
nien from abroad ; and it can readily bo irn
sgined that the turkeys well failed and roast-
ed in the most perfect and savoury manner
disappcaied la "a little less than no time.'
So well pleased were all with the dinner that
we shouldn't wonder if Johnson would repeat it
on Christmas, and perhaps on New Year's day.
However, under any state of circumstances, we
iiope "bis shadow may never grow less."

There are those, even here in Clearfield,
where one would suppose the moral atmosphere
to be almost as pure as the mountain air, who
contend' that Slavery is of Diving origin and
the result of direct reyeUtkwK il Wcy' may not
at aTf times avow if In so marly Words, but their
arguments' on the subject are generally based
upon that hypothesis, and their sensibilities are
frightfully shocked at anything that; may be
said to the contrary. The editor of the Char-
"liav :Ane CQUOr 01 iner tor-
field Republican seems to be one of this class ;
and hence it is not surprising to find' him, in
his last issue, censuring, indiscriminately, all
the clergymen who on Thanksgiving Day said
anght againstTfegro' Slavery fn this boasted
"free" country of ours. ; According tohisar
tide, these preachers must be a dreadful set of
" the livery of heaven to serve the Devil more
" fully than they otherwise could." They are

" who come fully up to the standard of their

They do it for gain for pelf for " money,"
ejaculates our immaculate neighbor, with well-
affected: astonishment ; and then, very charita
bly, ho ' hopes, or " expects" to hear of them
closing their lives in the same manner" in
which the unfortunate Mister J. Iscariot wound
up his earthly career. In the meantime, as
Thanksgiving Day is an "opportunity" which
is "always embraced" by these preachers "to
spread themselves in their pulpits" on the sla
very question, our neighbor very philanthropi
cally proposes to prevent tho recurrence of
such improper conduct by doing away with this
annual custom. "For our part," says he, "we
hope the-day as such may be abolished"
wiped out, entirely obliterated. That is the
sovereign remedy or, rather, the great pre
ventive, which khc intends applying to stop
these "vipers" and "hypocrites" from talking
so much upon "a subject not found within the
"lids of, the Bible negroes and American
Slavery." It may be that the Bible does not
contain anything on this "subject" wo will

more than we -could believe did we not our-'

the apologists of human bondage io our section
of the land when he said, "I envy neither the

" who rises to defend Slavery on principle."

county will compare this winter with what it
has been in former seasons. We know, how
ever, that our hard-working lumbermen are
busy in the woods, and advantage was taken of
the snow during the past week to haul some
ot the timber to the streams. Efforts, we are
told, are being made by interested parties to
create a panic in the business here, on the
strength of the secession excitement, with
what prospects of success we cannot say. Our
adviee 'to all would be, not to make any un
necessary sacrifices, bat to calmly await the
development of events, learn the condition of
financial affairs, and then act as prndence may
dictate or circumstances demand. Money mat
ters, it is true, are tightened up somewhat just
now, but we have four or five months ahead of
us yet, in the course of which' they may re
sume a healthier tone, and restore full confi
dence among business men generally.

man, immediately after the reading, arose and
delivered himself of a violent sectional speech',
in the course or which ho denounced the Pres
ident elect as a totaHy seetiwnal mam who had
promoted the principles- of Ibo- "IrreDressibln

pay the National debt, and then divide the
public property as equally as possible between
wio two sections ot the Union.' lie was repli
ed to l,y Mr' Crittenden, who hoped that the
frtfinj, nf tha ITninr, ' , . tK A
agree upon some plan for its preservation. In
the House, Mr. Sherman moved the reference
of the President's message to the committee
of the whole on the state of the Union. This
was opposed by Mr. Bolder of Virginia, who
offered an mendment referrine that document
to a special committee of one from each State,
with leave to report any time. This amend-

S. B. Row : Sir : In the Republican of last
week 1 see a communication, beaded "That

what I bad inserted. The affair is not very

or considered as such. The actions of the man
... - J
were strange, and led to all tho suppositions
which I stated, and which I think and believe
to be correct, from the fact of his asking,
when be saw strangers coming to the house, if j
they were going to arrest him. His horse was
sick, as I before stated, bad the blind staggers.
Men who profess to be judges, and whom I
know to be such, looked at the horse and pro
nounced it the blind staggers. The informant
of the Republican says the horse got down in
the stall to roll. 1 wish him to understand
that there was no stall or any other obstruction
in the way by which he could hurt himself.
Then the writer in the Republican says, "They
say," he s offered ' some very advantageous
trades. I wish to know who says so. ylf the
gentleman of Salt-LiclAan inform me, I wish
lie would do so. The gentleman then goes on
to speak of the value of the horse being $200;
but judges, that perhaps are better and more
competent, say from $75 to $100. The buggy
and harness he puts down at $125 ; they may
be worth $00, but no more. It has been a
good rig onee, bqt has been run down. It
seems to me a though the gentleman of Salt-
Lick, whoever he rn,ay be, is meddling with
what does, not belong to him.
