CLEARFIELD, FA ," JAN.1:
AM Ht)iT. GW. SCOfJELD. j : ;
The "Washington correspondent of the
Philadelphia Daily Keux, in wilting' ta that
paper under date of January 11th,. makes
the following allusion to lion. G. W. Sco
field and his reply to Mr. Brooks of New
"One of the rising men of Pennsylvania is
Hon. Glenxi W. Scofield, the able repre
sentative of the Nineteenth Congressional
District. On Friday last he delivered upon
the floor of the House of Representatives
what id by common consent acknowledged
to be one of the ablest speeches of either ses
sion of the present Congress. It was a reply
to one delivered by James Brooks, of New
York, who, in a most elaborate mariner,
undertook to pronounce, a criticism upon
the anti-slavery portion of the President's
message. Mr. Brooks, with all his idiosyn
crasies, is a man of no mean abilities, and he
who can so well succeed, as has Mr. co
field, in making him wince, and briuging
him to his feet to let otT such a wonderful
discharge of bile as the delivery of Mr.
Brooks' rejoinder proved, may well lay claim
to no small share of self-gratification. I
doubt if a more complete exposure of the
falacies of our opponents could well be
made; certainly I have never seen a better.
It is refreshing to behold how. Mr. S co
field shows up his opponent' s iue.onsist.en
cies how the hollowness of his objections
to the Constitution of the United States are
revealed; how he portrays to the core the
arrogance of the slave power, not only with
great vigor and clearness, but in a style of
diction as grand as it is faultless. His refu
tation of the absurdity that life South can
not be subjugated was as inimitable as. his
proof of the utter want of a parallel between
the revolution and the slave holders rebel
lion except in the existance of the tories
and copperheads w is graceful and sarcastic.
I regret that your limited space forbids the
publication entire of this speech, as I regret
my inability to extract pasts lest I should
mar the beaut' and harmony of the whole.
The nation owes thanks to Mr. Seoiield for
hi? truly admirable and timely speech; and
while the noble effort has won for its author
an enviable position among his fellow mem
bers, I know his loyal constituency will hail
him with, if possible, greater acclaim and
deeper pri do.' -

We have received a letter from Patrick Cur

Ilubler all citizens of Graham township,
in this county,now in Fort Mifflin request
ing us through our paper, to call upon 'eve
ry drafted man, every deserter, every bounty
jumper, and every man who is demanded
by authority, to come forward and report.' "
Why not publish the letter, Daniel '! You
was requested cither to publish it or return
it why not do one or the other? After re
ceiving it, you wrote that you was not goinpc
to issue a paper that week, and that it would
doubtless be too late to do any good in the
paper of the week following. You receiv
ed an answer; to publish the letter at all c
vents. Now, why did you not do it? It is
only just to its authors that their letter, pre
cisely as they wrote it, should be published,
and publLshod by you. It was on account
of your teachings, and others of like kid
ney, that they were placed in their present
position. They demanded of you, as your
supporters and followers, that you publish
their letter, iu vindication of their charac
ters as citizens willing to oley the laws
themselves, and encourage others to obey
them. Why then do you suppress it?
Why not give it to the public, and let these
men have the benefit they expected to de

"Senator Wallace put ir a substitute this
morning by a special- order from Provost
Marshal Dodge." llarrixbvrg Td graph,
January ,6, 1805.
Five months have worked a considerable
revolution in the Senator's sentiments. Had
the "precept" been omitted, and the "ex
ample" set at the proper time, numbers of
Jus, constituents who, from following his ad-
vice, are now in Fort Mifflin or in the army,
would be safe at- home with their families.
We sincerely trust that the 'example' will
be as effectual in inducing his followers to
obey the. laws, as tho 'precept' was perni
cious in leading fheui to disregard them.
We are not surprised that the Senator has
discovered the; propriety of abandoning his
position of five months ago, and that his
native shrewdness has induced him, volun
tarily, i furnish both "a man" and money
to carry on the war. We congratulate him
upon what he ha3 dona for his country, and
hope that others of his party "will go and
do likewise." -

EDWARD EVESETT. :
The profound regret excited by the death
of Edward Everett is unexampled since
the death of Washington. The sense of
national bereavement which followed the
decease of Jefferson, Jackson, the Adam
ses, Wedster, Clay and Caltiocn was
akin 1-v.t not ciual to it. Mr. Everett
was not a participant in the original strug
gle for national independence; he was not a
partisan nor tho leader of a party; he has
held office but little, and has not been an
actor to any great extent iu our great politi
cal struggle. Hence there is nothing in the
universal feeling of sorrow that arise.? from
political attachment or partisan affection.
It is a spontaneous tribute to his great worth
as a pure. Statesmen, without fear and with
out reproach as a scholar who cmp!o3red his
learning and abilities for the common good,
and as a patriot who served his country
without holding office and without the sus
picion of a base motive. Surc-'y no higher
compliment can be paid to any public man
than this. His epitaph is already written
on the national heart he livedj a life, of ex
alted usefulness and died universally be
Tha Excess of Quotas.
The Trovost Marshal General recently is
sued an order, in which he decided that no
reduction of quotas on the last call for a
draft would be made, except on actual en
listments since that call. This order was re
garded at the time of it- issue as manifest
ly unjust, for the reason that many sub-districts
had furnished an excess on previous
drafts, with the object of being prepared for
new calls. The order contemplates a repu
diation of all credits for such excess, and we
now see that a resolution has been introduc
ed in Congress to inquire into the justice of
th-3 decision of the Provost Marshal Gener
al It is clearly just that the people of all
districts should be treated alike. Jf the
people in one district by their activity and
liberality in paying bounties more than fill
their quota, they should receive credit for
their liberality and exertions ; and if tlioe
of another district are tardy and penurious
in this respect, they should reap the conse
quences of their neglect. We hope that
Congress will clearly define the meaning of
the law on this subject, and that justice will
be done to those districts that have furnish
ed an excess of men heretofore.
A Letter from Jeff. Davis.
The Richmond Whig of the listh publish
es an important letter from Jeff. Davis, in
reply to a letter of Senators-from Georgia,
in which they took ground against the reso
lutions introduced in the rebel House, in fa
vor of reconstruction. Jefferson Davis ar
gues that a convention of the States is en
tirely impracticable, and that any peace
movements on the jiart of individual States
tend only to the creation of discord in the
Confederacy, lie ,&xys that the only plan
by which peace can be obtained is provided
for in the rebel Constitution. - 'He docs not
state what this . plan . Is, but - proceeds at
length to show thy.t all propositions are fu
tile; that the United States will not negoti
ate, that they will only accept a surrender,'
which the rebel States cannot and will nit
grant.' "" " : . i . ' . : . . , .

- -Henry C. Cary is publishing, a series of
essays on the question of tariff duties, from
which we'" quote the following,-which-expresses
the essence of the policy wliich alone
will carry the country through its trials:
To the internal revenue, therefore, must
we look for little, if any, less than $450,000,
000. To the enforcement of protection we
must look for ils enlargement, and thus it is
that now, more than ever, we are to look to
the tariff as the means of raising revenue.
The more mills we build, the more mines
we sink, the more water-powers we improve,
the lar,gerwill -bo the value of land, ami the
lanrer will be the revenue. of counties and
of States. The greater the variety and ex
tent of our manufactures the more numer
ous will be the exchanges, the greater will ,
be the value of shops and ware-houses, and
the larger will be the revenues ot towns and
cities. The greater the quantity of com
modities produced the larger will be the
contributions of manufacturers towards the
Federal revenue. -'The greater demand for
labor the-higher will be wages, and the
greater the consumption of tea and coffee,
rice and sugar, to the great advantage of that
revenue. The larger the reward of labor
the greater will be the immigration of labor
ers,' to the great advantage of the owners of
the lanl and of the men by whom it is tilled.
The nearer the market to the farmer the
richer he will grow, and the greater will be
his power to make, without inconvenience
to himself, contributions or the support of
the governments of the State and of the U
nion. It is the reverse of all this, however,
that is desired by the ''wealthy capitalists"
of Europe. Thsy wish to separate the pro
ducer and the co:iumcr, and thus to in
crease to the utmost, the tax of transporta
tion. They desire that mills and furnaces
shall not be built. They would have" our vast
mineral wealth remain undeveloped. They
would compel us to carry rags and corn to
England, to be returned in the form of. pa
per. ' They would have the price of labor
kept down to the "famine price," and thus
destroy the existing inducements to immi
gration. . They would, if . they could. 'drive
the government into bankruptcy, and thus
forever destroy all hope for any permanent
maintenance of the Unioni.
Sellable from Eebeldom.
A. D. Richardson, the Tribune corres
Dondent who h?ts just escaped from Sails
bury, North Carolina, speaks of the suffer
ings of our men there as most distressing,
and -asserts that the rebels arc deliberately,
remorselessly, starving and freezing them to
death. His information and statements are
explicit, and go to establish the necessity
of making a complete exchange of prisoners,
or immediate retaliation on the rebels in our
hands. It is the opinion of Mr. Richard
son, that the rebels can not increase largely
the force of white men in their army.
Western North Carolina is full of faithful
Union people, and the negroes are evry
where and all the time, the friends and hel
pers of our soldiers. The Unionists in
North Caro'iua are, latterly; doing a good
work ia the way of bushwhacking the rebel
home guards, devoting" themselves especial
ly to the shouting of officers. , The Rich

culation is the Examiner, the sheet that so
bitterly assails Jeff. Davis.

. At a special meeting of the Union Lenguc,
in New York city to honor the memory of
Edward Everett, Mr. Bryant, in the
course of an exceedingly appropriate address
said: If I have ever uttered am'thing in
derogation of Mr. Everett's public char
acter at times when it seemed to me that he
did not resist, with becoming .spirit, the
aggressions of wrong, I now, lookir.g back
upon his noble'record of the last f our years,
retract it at his grave. I lay upon his:
hearse the declaration of my sorrow that I
saw not then the depth of his worth, that I
did not discern under the conversatism
which f irmed a part of his nature, that
generous courage which a great emergency
could so nobly awaken."
Humors About Blair's ilioslon.
The IL raltVs Washington special has va

Richmond. ; One is that Blair brought au
tograph letters from Davis to Lincoln, say
ing that he was ready to treat for peace, and
that a communication from Lincoln, has
been taken back to Richmond expressing
a willingness to send or receive commission
ers. Many well informed people in Wash
ington look for important results from
Blair's second visit to the rebel Capital.
A Singular Eebel Admission.
A significant article appears in the Rich
mond Eiiqvircx of last Thursday, which
says After every manly effort the cbels
may fail, and policy and interest, would in
cline the rebels' to submit to the United
States rather than to England, France or
Maximilian. Joining their military force
they could then make a clean sweep of thij
continent and thus hide their shanio, 'while
America would become the collosal power of
the world. '

: In a speech before the Kentucky Legis
lature, on Friday.JIon. W. P. Kenney said
he bad heretofore sustained the legal enact

slavery in some respects beneficial to both
races, although he had never believed in
the inherent right of one man to hold anoth
er man in bondage, but that those benefits had
ceased to accrue and tho rebellion was res
ponsible therefor. He jutifiV.d the acts of
the Administration in regard to slavery, and
vindicated the right of the people to amend
the Constitution and abolish slavery, believ
ing the Union to be the immutable basis of
Government and the Constitution its muta
ble policy, to be changed as necessity, or ex
perience required. He concluded that Ken

mendment as slavery had retarded her de

Admiral Porter on the Monitors.
A dispatch 'dated Washington, January

id tho Navy Department on the Subject of
monitors and iron-clads, in which he states
hat his experience has been with the Mon

and built, he believes, by different construct
ors, lie says the last r.amed left Hampton
Roads on the 13th ultimo. On the 21st it
blew hard ftom the Soutliwot. They made
the best weather and rode easier than any of
the other vessels in the fleet. All the tran
sports cut and ran, though he thoucht'that
quilts unnecessary. After the light he in
quired of the commanders of the monitors
how they passed the ordeal, and they seem
ed to think they got along well. The smal
ler monitors, Mahopie andC'auonicvs, at the
time almost disappeared from view, and tho
commander of the former vessel complained
of discomfort, owing to the decks leaking,
but the vessel was iu no danger. At any
time the Monadnoek could ride out a gale
in the Atlantic ocean, and is capable of cros
sing the ocean alone when her compasses
are once adjusted properly, and could de
stroy any vessel in the French or British na
vy, lay their towns under contribution, and
return again, provided she could pick up
coal, without fear of beiru followed. She
cotiid certainly clear any harbor on our coast
of blockaders iu case we were at war with a
foreign power, as strong . and thick fchot
from Fort Fisher only indented her side ar

An Enterprising Oil Man.
Col. Go wan, of Boston," coming down
from St. Petersburg, throu'.h Georgia and

which the natives were working in a very
different way, and which the Colonel bought.
He then came to Paris and London, organ
ized a company, sent out men to work the
wells, and ships to carry to London and Liv
erpool the products, and they are now pay
ing handsome dividends. But what is more
surprising still, the Colonel, in eturning
lately from the Black Sea to Paris, : popped
on the way at the Island at Sames, on the
eastern shore of the Mediterranean, where
he found and bought another oil well.
What is still more curious, this well was
spoken ot by liEUoDorrs, the Greek histo
rian, tour hundred and fifty years before
Cuhist, and from that day to this no one
has thought of turning to use this import
ant discovery. Col. Gowan has bought fif
