CLEARFIELD, FA., JUNE 25, 186J.
WHAT THEY HAVE IN VIEW.
It ia qnito refreshing to read some of the
organs of the Bredkinridge-Vallandigham
Democracy they are snch amiable, truthful,
patriotic affairs. We have just now before ns
one of those delectable sheets, bearing the
euphonious title of "Patriot and Union," in
which it is asserted that "the blood-stained
records of the Spanish holy inquisition are
the models which inspire .the legislation" of
the present Congress, that "this unchristian
policy, evidently pursued to protract the
war, is upheld by blood-thirsty fanatics and
professional robbers, leagued together for
" the unholy purpose of gratifying an insane
" hatred of Southern institutions and the lust
of spoils, stimulated by official impurity."
That, we should think, is rather "rich," com
ing, as it does, from an editor who belonged
to the old corrupt Buchanan dynasty, one of
the Cabinet officers of which was implicated
in a wholesale robbery of the Treasury, whilst
another was stealing all the cannons, muskets,
and munitions of war for their "dear brothers"
who, through devotion to the "Southern in
stitutions," for which the editor of the Patriot
and Union seems so deeply concerned, have
taken np arms and are fighting against the
United States Government.
But this immaculate editor does not stop
here. Firing np with his subject, he wants to
know if the "brave and patriotic volunteers,"
and the "deluded, wheedled, tax-ridded peo-
pie, will longer submit to the rule and legis
" lation," of those whose acts have caused
his ire to rage so fiercely. . The editor of the
Patriot and Union thinks not. He says, "this
ruthless and absurd management of the
war; this degradation abroad of our once
glorious Union, can no longer be tolerated
" by a deceived and injured people." Ob,
no f thi people will not "tolerate" anything
of that sort, if the editor of the Patriot and
Union can make them believe that they are
half, as badly "deluded," "wheedled," "tax
ridden," and "injured," as he would have it
appear, and induce them to repudiate their
obligations to the best Government the sun
ever shone upon.
Nor is ha content with pointing out the dan
gers which exist in his fanciful imagination
he also offers a remedy. "To save the nation
from impending ruin," be says "the reins
of Government must return into the hands
" oP of whom do yon suppose, dear reader ?
Why no others, of a verity, than those of we
pause lor breath of "the Democratic party I"
There it is at last. The proposition is cer
toinly plain enough to be understood, but the
ground upon which these Breckinridge-Val-landigbamites
base their pretensions of being
the "only party capable of re-uniting" the
States, is not so clear, unless they state in
versely the problem that "the power which can
make, can likewise unmake."
It has been suspected, however, that a res
toration of the Union does not concern these
disinterested, patriotic editors of the Breck
and Vallandigham stripe, nearly so much as
does a restoration of their party to power.
This manifests itself even in their call for a
State Convention, where "the welfare of the
Democratic party" is made by its position,
paramount to the welfare of the country.
With this object constantly In view, their
policy is to ombarass the war, to misrepresent
the Administration, and, if possible, to fright
en the people with the cry of "heavy taxes,"
"abolition war," and all that sort of stuff, into
the support of their candidates the coming
fall. And it is scarcely to be doubted that
they base their calculations largely upon the
hope that the war may continue until after
tho election, knowing full well that a large
majority of the men who are in tne field, fight
ing under the glorious "Stars and Stripes,"
are Republicans, whilst hundreds who have
heretofore acted with the Democracy, would
indignantly spurn the invitation to join a po
litical organization, the leaders of which are
as chary at praising our Union soldiers as tbey
are profuse in apologies for rebels and traitors
The editors of the Clearfield Republican boast
in their last 'issue that they devote a large
hare ot their outside to a description of the
late battle near Richmond, in which the Union
soldiers are stigmatized as "cowards," "pol
troons," and as "looking mean as sheep
thieves." Tbey also exult at the idea of copy.
ing an article reflecting on the conduct of
Bawkia'a New York Zouaves at Camden, N.
C. 11 ad either of these accounts praised our
soldiers, they probably would never have ap
peared in the Republican ; but being calculat
ed to throw reproach upon them, as a matter
of course tbey are promptly transferred to the
columns of that sheet. In order to do all
the harm possiblo to our men who took part
in the desperate fight near Richmond, the ed
d iters of the Republican' might have added
Gen. McClellan's official dispatch, in which
be speaks of the conduct of Gen. Casey's Di
vision as being "discreditable," notwithstand
ing some of its regiments lost fifty percent,
of the number they took into the battle.
We fear our old friend, tbo New York XV
4. bmne, is getting on the wrong track. At least
' it Is auspicious to And the Clearfield Republican
copying so largely from its correspondence.'
FREEDOM THE FUNDAMENTAL LAW.
Monday, June 16th, the Congress of the Uni
ted States settled the long pending controver
sy concerning the Territories of the Union,
and settled it rightly, too on the principle
and in the exact language of Jefferson, the
immortal Democrat, patriot and statesman.
On that day the House concurred in the Sen
ate's amendment (purely verbal) to the bill
prohibiting Slavery for ever in all Territories
of the United States. As now fully passed,
the bill reads :
" To the end that Freedom may be and re
main forever the fundamental law of the land
in all places whatsoever, so far as it lies within
the power or depends upon the action f the
Government of the United States to make it
" Be it enacted, 4-c. That from and after the
passage of this act there shall be neither Slavery
nor involuntary servitude in any of the Territo
ries of the United States now existing, or
which may at any time hereafter be formed on
acquired by the United States, otherwise than
in punishment of crimes whereof the party shall
have been duly convicted."
The part of the act which we have placed in
italic is in the exact words of the ordinance
drawn by Jefferson in 1784, prohibiting slavery
in all the Territories, and which received six
teen votes for and seven against in the IXth
Continental Congress. Six States voted lor
it, three (South Carolina, Virginia and Mary
land) against it, while North Carolina was di
vided and New Jersey was without a quorum.
As it lacked one of a majority of all tho
States, the proposition then failed.
In 1787, the States of North Carolina and
Georgia having refused to cede their portion
of the territory, (now constituting the States
of Tennessee, Alabama and Mississippi) a
committee, of which Mr. Dane was chairman,
reported an ordinance for the government of
the territories northwest of the Ohio, in Which
the exact words of Jefferson, as above reen-
acted, were incorporated. The action of Con
gress in 1862 is therefore simply coming back
to the principles of Jefferson and his patriotic
compeers of 1784-7, and the bill needs only
the signatne of the President which it will
not need long to make it a law of the land.
FAETY BEFORE COUNTRY.
True to their instincts the Democratic State
Committee, under the leadership of their
Breckinridge chairman, William H. Welsh,
have issued a call for a State Convention, on
the fourth of July next. The object of the
Convention, as stated in their call is,
"To nominate candidates for Auditor-Gen
eral and Surveyor-General, and to adopt such
measures as may be deemed necessary for the
welllare of the Democratic party and the coun
The "welfare of the Democratic party" is
the primary object : that of their country a
mere secondary consideration. The leaders
who second the movements of Vallandigham
and his traitorous accomplices In their efforts
to resuscitate and reorganize the doomed and
defunct organization which nurtured and
strengthened southern treason, vainly hope
that by holding their conclave on the anniver
sary of American independence they may be
able to excite an interest in their operations
and induce loyal Democrats to give them an
enthusiastic support. But their nicely ar
ranged plans are well understood and their in
tentions too transparent to deceive any but
deluded partisans. Loyal men are by this
time pretty generally aware that this new or
ganization professing to be Democracy reviv
ed and regenerated, is simply a masked bat
tery of treason intended to impede the govern
ment in its work of crushing rebellion. Or,
in other words, it is nothing better than a
shrewdly contrived tender attached to the loco
motive Secession. The trick will not deceive
any but those whose proclivities naturally at
tract them to the side of the rebels and their
FACTS WOETH REMEMBERING.
The Brekinridge- Vallandigham leaders
have j?f late been engaged in trying to deceive
the people in reference to the expense of th
present National Administration. In view of
these assertions made by unscrupulous poli
ticians, the official records of the Govern
ment have been produced, and, upon compa
ring the present ordinary outlays with those
of the Buchanan Administration, it was found
that the expenses duriDg the first year of
Mr. Lincoln's Adm inistration was some eight
millions less than it was under that of his
Democratic predecessor for a like period. In
speaking of these facts, a coternporary says:
" Keep it before thk Peopt k I Thnt th.
expenses of the first year of the administration
oj sioranam Lincoln, aside Jrom those growing
out of our military nneralinn.i mr r,nt nm 1nrr
by Eight Millions of Dollars, as those under
me aaminisiraiion oj James Jiucnanan for the
. Let it also be kept before the people, that the
cause of the enormous expenses growing out of
these military operations, can be directlt tra
ced TO THE "DEMOCRATIC" PABTV AND THE AD
MINISTRATION of James Buchanan."
Tho above is the best answer that can pos
sibly be made to the shifts and misrepresenta
tions of the Democratic organs and leaders
on the subject of the expenses of the govern
ment. The Democratic party is responsible
for all the burdens which may grow out of
these expenses. Let tbe loaders of that par
ty, then, pay their quota of these expenses,
in the shape of the taxation which is about to
bo. levied, and forever heroafter hold their
peace in regard to corruption and evtrava
gance. Secesh Prisoners. Four hundred and thir

THE "DEMOCRATIC" MEETING.
On Tuesday evening of last week, after the
ringing of the Court Hous'e bell, we wended
our way to the Court Room, to see and hear
what was going on. On entering the door, the
first object that attracted our attention, was
the vehement gesticulations of some person
at the farther end of room, which we did not
fully comprehend at first sight. But after
"reconnoitering" a short time, we got the
hang of the subject, and found that onr friend
was trying his utmost to resurrect and recon
struct the "Democratic par-ee," as it was, by
relating quite a number of anecdotes, and
some negroisms, which produced slight ap
plause in the assembly. This done, he tried
to make the audience believe that the Demo
cratic was the only Union party in the land
that there were no Secessionists or sympathi
sers with the rebels in this State that he was
in favor of sustaining the Government and
the war, but, (hark ye,) he would hold "Old
Abe up to the scratch," and that the Democ
racy was in favor of aiding the Union men of
South, and relieving them from their present
unpleasant situation. Och ! Mister Speaker
and don't yez know" that the people are not
such "blockheads" as not to know that that
is just the thing that "Old Abe" has been doing;
and if the leaders of your party were not so
much for holding the President "up to tho
scratch," the Southern Union men would all
tho sooner be relieved. This being for the
Union with an "if," or "holding Old Abe up
to the scratch," reminds us of a colloquy that
occurred between two Irish Democrats, re
cently. One asked :
"Indade, Barney, and what does in mane
where it says in the call for our Dimecrat con
vention 'the vigorous prosecution of the war
should be accompanied by the most liberal
proffers of peace ?' "
"Och ! ye blockhead; don't yez know what
it manes it manes yis it manes the itame
as if two of yez was having a bit of discoosbun
wid sticks, and ivery time the ither one should
hit yez a pelt in the gob yez should sing out
now let's be paceable !' "
"Bedad, Barney, I think that it would be a
lengthy discooshin thin, for he'd think 1 was
afther being whipped. Faix, I'd give him the
licks first and thin talk the paceable after
wards. Sure, tjiat's the sinsible way."
"Ah ! Mickey, I'm afraid ye do too much
of your own tbinkin' to be a good Dimecrat."
Now, our opinion is, that this "scratohing"
or fault-finding with "Old Abe" at present,
because of his management of the war, is cal
culated to strengthen the rebels and the means
of making a more "lengthy discooshin" out
of the rebellion. The true Union men, like
Mickey, are in favor of giving the rebels "the
licks first," and then talk about the "scratch
ing" afterwards. "Sure that's the sincible
way ;" and, we presume, the intelligent and
patriotic people, who love the Stars and
btripes more than party, "do too much of
their own thinking" to be good Breckinridge
"Diraecrats," and this trying to "hit" them
"a pelt in the gob," was labor in vain. The
people understand all about these matters, and
consequently can't be much deceived by
throwing dust into their eyes. So much for
tho first part of the performance.
The second speaker followed pretty nearly
the same track trodden by the one who pre
ceded him. nis speech, however, was more
than usually moderate, and be made a most
prodigious effort to appear sedate and sober in
his remarks. He very solemnly exhorted his
Democratic brethern not to be "alarmed"
when called secessionists, "as that did Bot
hurt ;" but the mere allusion to the subject,
made quite a sanctimonious Impression upon
them. At this juncture, however, an anec
dote anegroism was related, which had the
effect to dispel the gloom that had settled on
the audience, and it become hilarious, and all
seemed pleased that they had been so sudden
ly relieved from an unpleasant dilemma.
The third speaker was announced, but as we
felt wearied, we retired, and therefore are un
able to give a report of his remarks.
But, the most important feature of the
meeting was, that the assembled wisdom of the
"Democracy" of Clearfield county, did not
exhibit their principles to their followers. If
we are correctly informed, the leaders omit
ted to present their usual platform ; from
which we are left to infer, that tbey are "all
things, to all men." Not a resolution did they
pass commending the National Administra
tion for its efforts in quelling the rebellion
which is being waged against the Government
by their "dear brothers" of the South. Not
a resolution did these self-applauded Union
men pass commending our brave and gallant
soldiers who are sacrificing their all, even life,
to maintain the integrity of the Constitution
and the permanency of the Union. Not a res
olution did they pass condemning the rebels
and traitors of the South, who are straining
every nerve to destroy the free Institutions
under which we live. Not tbey. They were
"mum." Surely, a rather ominous position
to occupy in these momentous times, we should
say ; and one which reminds us ot an old
"saw" about a certain individual who thought
he was about to die. Being very wicked and
uncertain of his future anode, he began to
pray, "Good Lord, good Devil," not sure in
to whose bands he might fall. So with our
"Democratic" leaders in Clearfield county.
They know that their party sins have been
many and very grevious, (especially tbo Na
tional,) and therefore they sing "mum," not
certain whether they shall remain in the Union
or fall Into the bands of the Rebels. . ,
Such is the position of the Breckinridge
Vallandigham party leaders In Clearfield coun
ty. Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Their
conrse is enigmatical and uncertain. Surely,
the Romans couldn't
'Make plays that would fit
. The public humor, with lens wit;
1 Write funnier dances, quainter shows,', 1
Or fight with more equlrieal blows ;
' Nor does the man in the Moon tho' big,
Wear a more grotesque periwig,
. Or show in bis gait or face more tricks i '
Than do our native" Dimmycrits.
- Indeed they seem to be afraid to let the peo
ple know where tbey . stand s and, tbereforo,
they promulgate neither principles nor plat
form. Bnt this will avail them nothing. The
people know their own interests, ard the time
has come when all must take sides boldly,
either for or against the Union.
"Stonewall" Jackson's Escape. Mrs.
Legget, wife of Lieut. A. Legget of the
Eighth N. Y. Cavalry, left in Winchester,
Va., during the late Rebel occupation of that
place, her husband having retreated at short
notice with his regiment. She has since re
turned to Rochester, after having enjoyed sev
eral days' intercourse with the Rebel chiefs,
and she says Jackson's force cannot have fal
len below 40,000 men. It was all day in pas
sing through Winchester on its retreat, when
it had every reason for economizing time. It
was this army that Gen. Fremont, with less
than 25,000 men, fought at Cross-Keys, hold
ing his ground firmly, though the Rebels were
very strongly posted ; it was this army against
which Gen. Fremont advanced next morning
in battle array, but it had stolen away during
the night. "Stonewall" Jackson is one of the
best officers in the Rebel service; we do not
say he was beaten at Cross Keys, but he
certainly won no victory and he would have
been caught between Fremont and Shields
next day but for the mistake of Col. Carroll in
not burning the Port Republic bridge. That
mistake has probably cost, the Union cause
1,000 men Shield's advance being crushed
by the whole weight of Jackson's army and
pushed back down the river, while Stone
wall" made his escape over the Blue Ridge.
He rushed down the Valley very rapidly, but
he has been runout of it at full speed. His
great strength and intimate knowledge of the
country have saved turn from capture or de
struction. The last Clearfield Republican asserts that
we have devoted "almost exclusively" two
issues of our paper to refute the "unanswer
able arguments" ot the Vallandigham Demo
cratic address. In the issues referred to, we
gave 27 columns of reading matter, a little
over five of which had reference to the address
alluded to, leaving nearly 22 columns for
other news, whilst our neighbors gave less
than 22 columns, in all, in the same two weeks.
Five out of twenty-seven Is "almost exclusive
ly," is it, eh 1 Come, neighbors, you should
not tell such a "bare-naked" whopper, lest
your readers might infer that you were given
to telling falsehcods.
Speech of Hon. John Patton. The Mc
Kean Miner, in speaking of Mr. Patten's
speech on the bill for the Confiscation of Reb
el property says :
"It is moderate in tone and right to the
point. Mr. Patton has proved himself to be
an active and efficient member, working hard
with but few words, always in the right place.
He has stood upright and foremost in advocat
ing all true measures for the suppression of
this infamous rebellion, for which he deserves
the thanks of the people of this district. We
would suggest to the voters of this district
the propriety of again nominating and elect
ing him ; be is one who has been tried and is
found true to his trust."
Vindication of Secretary Stanton. On
our outside will be found an article from the
Boston Transcript, in vindication of Hon. E.
M. Stanton, Secrataiy of War. The article
appeared in the N. Y. Herald without com
ment ; and was copied into, and that portion
of it which relates to Mr. Stanton, endorsed,
by the Philadelphia Inquirer. We give it as a
matter of newsand leave the reader put bis
own construction upon it.
Growlers. The Brcckinridge-Vallandig-hamites,
are purely a party of opposition.
They oppose the pending measures upon taxa
tion, confiscation, the prosecution of the war,
gradual emancipation, etc., but never present
any measures of their own. For all the dis
position that they have ever shown to favor
the Government In its present difficulties, the
country might have gone to the dogs long ago.
The Nashville iwion thus speaks of the Val
landigham Democratic Address :
"The Union men of the South regard it as
the production or a pack of traitors. They
detest both the Address and its authors."
Storm and Fiie at Cincinnati.
Cincinnati June 18. About three o'clock
yesterday asternoon a heavy storm prevailed
here. The lightning struck the manufactory
connected with the extensive liquor ware
house of Fletcher, Hobert & Co., and passing
through the roof it struck one of the stills,
causing its instantaneous explosion. The
burning fluid spread in every direction, and
the workmen barely escaped with their lives.
The building , was speedily . consumed the
walls falling and crushing several frame bouses
adjoining. A woman who resided in one of
these bouses was killed. By this time the
warehouse of the same firm on Front street
was completely enveloped in flames and was
entirely destroyed, consuming one thousand
barrels of whiskey, two hundred barrels of
linseed oil, one hundred barrels ot lard oil,
besides a quantity of alcohol and other stock.
The loss of Fletcher & Co., was about $00,000
on which there was an insurance of $38,000.
The loss on the frame buildings which were
crushed and paitially burned was $15,000. A
large store on Front street occupied by Geo.
M. Hord & Co., adjoining the burnt ware
bouse, was damaged to the amount of several
thousand dollars. At 3 o'clock this morning
the walls of Hord & Co.'s store, which were so
much damaged by the fire ol yesterday, fell in,
the contents ot the store which were 800 bbls.
of whiskey and a large amount of baled hemp
taking fire, and being all destroyed by fire and
water. The loss reaches, perhaps $40,000 ;
the Insurance has not been ascertained.

FROM GEN. McCLELLAN'S ARMY.
Recent Rebel Demonstration.
McClellan's Headquarters, June 14.
The rebels, yesterday, after driving from Old
Church a squadron of the Fifth Cavalry, pro
ceeded to Garlick'a Landing, on the Pumun
key River, about four miles above the White
House, where they burnt two schooners and
some wagons, and drove off the mules. Here
their conduct is represented as barbarous, hav
ing killed several of our teamsters without any
necessity. Those who failed to make their
escape were taken prisoners. From here they
proceeded toTunstall's Station, 4 miles from
White House, with a view of burning the rail
road bridge. A train which was passing down
at tbe time was fir-d into killing two and
wounding several. A colonel belonging to
the Excelsior Brigade was made prisoner, but
succeeded in making his escape during the
night. A paymaster jumped from the train,
and hid himself in the woods until morning,
leaving $125,000 in the cars. The train never
stopped but passed on to the White House.
After destroying the telegraph wire at this
point, they proceeded to Baltimore Cross
Roads, near New Kent Court house, on their
way to Richmond, crossing tho Chickahomi
ny, between Bottom's bridge and the James
river, about two o'clock this morning. The
force that accompanied this was composed of
fifteen hundred cavalry and six pieces of ar
tillery, under Gen. Stewart, most oi whom
were resideuts of this locality, and therefore,
were no strangers to the roads. At White
House, which is a rendezvous of suttlers and
venders of small wares, a regular stampede
took place. Lieut. Col. Ingalls, command
ant it that post, had all the corps ordered out,
and posted in favorable positions to resist any
attack that might have been made. The mail
boat Nellie Baker, which left this morning,
was crowded with hangers-on of the army and
civilians who thought Fort Monroe to be a
more congenial climate. At Old Church the
rebels had in reserve .-ix regiments of infantry
with artillery. As soon as the facts were fully
known pursuit by cavalry was immediately or
dered, but the enemy having so much of a
start, only five were captured. Several ar
rests have been made to-day of citizens within
our lines, on suspicion oi having given infor
mation to the enemy.
A despatch received af the War Depart
ment, from Gen. McClellan, this afternoon,
states that Col. Averill had just returned from
a scout to tho Matiapony, in search of a band
of guerrillas, but tbey were found to have left
the previous day. He destroyed the bridge,
took a number of wagons and carts loaded with
supplies for Richmond, destroyed a large
amount of rebel grain, and captured several
important prisoners. Colonel Gregg had
made a reconnoissance to Charles City Court
House, and recovered some mules, which were
driven off by Gen. Stewart in the Pumunky
raid. Gen. McClellan compliments Colonels
Averill and Gregg for the handsome manner
in which the expeditions were conducted.
By the arrival of the White House boat we
learn that shirmishing has been going on in
front of the army. The rebels have assumed
a more menacing attitude, and will probably
try to bring on a general engagement in front
of their works in order to draw onr troops
within range of their batteries. Three de
serters from the 3d Georgia regulars, who
came in yesterday, reiterate the report that
the rebels are becoming more desperate and
greatly disheartened at their recent defeats.
Orders have been issued preventing any per
son not connected with the army of the Poto
mac from visiting the frout under any circum
stances. FROM GEN. FREMONT'S ARMY.
Gen. Fremont, has fallen back to Mount
Jackson, midway between Port Republic and
Front Royal, where be has taken a strong de
fensive position the ordering of Gen. Shield 's
to Richmond having made this movement im
perative. This movement, however, will af
ford Gen. Fremont to rest and recruit his
men, who have been constantly on the march
for some three or four weeks.
Winchester, June 17. There is nothing
worthy of note transpiring here at present,
but we hear a multitude of rumors in reird
to Gen. Fremont's army. The latest report,
coming through a rebel channel to Strasburg,
is that Jackson had fallen back to some de
fensible point, where he had been reinforced
by 70,000 men, 10,000 of whm he would em
ploy to keep Fremont engaged while the re
mainde9 were to march down the valley west
of North mountain, cut Fremont off, and sweep
him from the valley. Gen. Fremont's front
tested on Mount Jackson, his line extending
from the Massachusetts to the foot of the
North mountain, south of Mill creek.
A Rrilliant Engagement.
Memphis, Jine 19. An expedition compos
ed of the gunboats St. Louis, Lexington, Con
estoga and Mound city, with transports carry
ing the 43d and 46th Indiana regiments un
der Col. Fitch, was sent hence some days
since to removo tho obstructions from the
White river. On the 17th the expedition
reached St. Charles, 8-5 miles above the motitb
of the river where the rebels had elected a
battery. An engagement ensued lasting an
hour and a half ; while tbe gunboats engaged
the batteries the troops under Colonel Fitch
landftd. a short distance below, and proceeded
to storm the place. During the cannonading
a ball entered the boiler of the gunboat
Mound City, causing a fearful explosion and
loss of life. The crew consisted of 175, 125
of whom were killed and wounded.
Col. Fitch's charge on the battery was a
perfect success, driving the enemy out at the
point of the bayonet. The rebel loss is 125
killed and wounded and 30 prisoners.
