Raftsman's journal. S. B. ROW, EDITOR A! D PROPRIETOR. CLEARFIELD, PA..SOV. 3, 1858. WHAT THE EFFECT WILL BE. We bear a great many conjectures as to the probable effect;" of the recent victory of the i'eoole's Partv in Pennsylvania. Some con tend that no permanent good to the party will result irom it ; that it is but a transitory vic tory a brief interlude in the success of Loco- focoisni a trifling reverse which will be fol lowed speedily by a re-action that will again throw us in the shade. For our own part, we entertain no such idea. The contest was a calm, dispassionate one no extraordinary ex citement was manifested no sudden efferves cence of public feeling was witnessed ; and bence we regard the victory as a salutary, ef fective triumph of the people, which is the re sult of due consideration and thoughtful con viction on their part. James Buchanan was elected because the masses in 1800 were made to believe that he would faithfully carry out certain principles. This he not only failed to do ; but men who were elected to Congress on the same ground violated their pledges and betrayed their con stituents. Besides this, the country was sul feting from the ruinous effects of the "pro gressive free trade"' policy of the so-called Democratic party our industrial Interests were prostrated, and thousands of laborers were out of employment the National Gov ernment running rapidly into debt, and a "hard money" Administration not only issuing trea sury notes, but borrowing millions of dollars to keep things moving. All these facts were fresh iu the minds of the people they appeal ed directly to their intelligence, and induced them to take a stand against the dictation of tho leaders of that party. It was "the sober second thought" of the voters themselves that dictated their course, and resulted in the tri umph of the People's Party. And it is this makes us think that permanent good will in ure to our party from this victory. When men once take a position from self-persuasion, they cancot be easily induced to change ; and we feel confident that every individual who acted with the People's Party this fall, will re main true to his integrity, and in I860 aid in hurling from power those who are now misru ling our country and destroying her laboring interests. The British government has given formal notice to the United States government that they will interfere to prevent any further filli bustering enterprises from the United States upon Nicaragua, Costa Kica, or any of tho Central American States. This is no empty declaration, but a positive and grave determi nation. To enforce it, the British government are about to send a strong fleet to the port of (Jreytown, and also to San Juan del Stir. It is probable that some cnterprizes, of a charac ter similar to that imputed to General Walker, arc on foot, in regard to Nicaragua. Some mysterious movements from New York in the direction of Nicaragua can only be accounted for cn this supposition, and hence the interfer ence of Great Britain at this time. Os-EGO. The overland mail brings accounts ef a battle at Four Lakes, Oregon, on the 1st of September, between three hundred troops under Col. Wright, and five hundred Indians, in which the Indians were completely routed, with the less of seventeen killed and many wounded. The troops sustained no loss what ever. The Oregon Ssate Legislature met at Salem on the loth of September, and adjourn ed sine die, thus giving up the State Organiza tion until the regular admission of Oregon in to (lie Union by Congress. Delazon Smith and L. F. G rover, elected to represent the State in the United States Senate, were about leaving Portland for Washington. The Washington Union of a recent dale con tains a leader bitterly opposing the doctrine of Protection, and ridiculing the iron mongers of Pennsylvania in particular, for asking such a revision of the Turin as will promote their in terests. This article undoubtedly expresses the views of tho Administration. The Government horses and mules sold at Fort Leavenworth, a few days ago, brought prices ranging from $5 to $80 each. AU these animals cost the Government as much as $80, and many of them twice that snm. A great many of them sold for $15 and $20 each ; on ly a few brought as much as $S0. By late news from Utah we loam that good feelings prevailed between the Mormons and the gentiles, and Gov. Cnmming's administra tion seems to bo satisfactory to tho former. Gov. Johnston's command, consisting of from 7,000 to 83(Mi0 men, will remain together du ring the winter. The Secretary of War has received a dis patch from Gen. Twiggs, confirming the here tofore published accounts of the fight with the Indiana of Texas, and he will take imme diate measures for increasing the military force in that State. The great chess match in Paris has been terminated, and Morphy, the American player, declared winner. He had five games, and Harwitztwo. They were to have plajed un til one or ether had won seven games, but Tlarwitr gave it up when Morphy had five and be had two. . 1 LETTER FROM THE WEST. Correspondence of the "Raftsman's Journal." .Omaha Citt, N. T., Oct. 18, 18-58. Feiexb Row : The gold excitement through this part of the countty continues, to a great extent, unabated. Cheering news is brought to our settlements almost daily by old moun taineers and others coming in from Cherry Creek and Pike's Peak. Large numbers of persons have gene there from our Nebraska and Iowa towns along the Missouri River. But the lateness of the season, scarcity of money, &c, will pretty effectually prevent any further emigration thither this fall. Large numbers, however, are making preparations to start in the spring, should not the whole thing prove to be a delusion. I have just had a. long con versation with a gentleman just arrived from Salt Lake He made the trip from Salt Lake to Omaha in about thirty-six days. The gen tleman referred to states "that he found quan tities of lino gold in the bank of a stream call ed Strawberry creek, and that it appeared to exist there in large quantities. Gold had also been discovered on Brier creek and Sweet Water creek, in the same vicinity." These creeks are some distance west of Fort Lara mie. He "saw plenty of specimens in dust and in lumps in the hands of the soldiers, as it had been collected at Cherry Creek. He met about one hundred teams, between Lara mie and Omaha, on their way to Cherry creek. Each team takes about four men with their ne cessary provisions for eight or nine months. The same gentleman informed me that the Mormons are now quiet, and that the disap pointed and vexed officers aud soldiers had nothing to do but to prepare for winter quar ters. Tho army was healthy and in good con dition. On his way in he met one hundred and three Government trains bound for Salt Lake. Each train consists of twenty-six wag ons, "each one of which is drawn by six yoke of oxen." The Cheyenne Indians, hitherto very troublesome and unmanageable, are re ported to be "peaceable, friendly and well disposed towards their white masters." Great interest is manifested here to learn the result ot ttie late elections held in Penn sylvania, Ohio, Iowa and otherStates. Poli tics in this Territory have, until quite recent ly, lain dormant. But party strife is almost as bitter here now as it is in the old settled States, where the great contending parties of the day are prompted to action by the hope of the spoils of office in view before them. Ne braska will, beyond doubt, adopt a constitu tion prohibiting slavery within its limits, as soon as it is ready for admission into the Union of States. The Democrats claim to have majority in the Territory, but the people are not at all willing to make any such admission The Legislature of the Territory is yet ii session, and will contiuue its session tor about twenty-five days. A large amount of business has been disposed of during the session, and much more of a public nature yet remains to dispose of. On the 21st of Sept., at the be ginning of the session, the Territory was al most without law. No laws for punishing crimes exi ted at that time, as a former Legis lature repealed all tho criminal laws, broke np, and passed no others. Yours, very respectfully, D.... "Clearfield. While we arc proud of our Democratic little county we would' not over look the glorious result in our neighbor Clear field. With a largely reduced Democratic vote she came up to nearly her usual majority. Senator Biglcr may well be proud of his adopt ed county. . . . Both Democratic members in that district and the whole county ticket are elected." Clarion Democrat. These Lecompton editors are really queer chaps, and it seenis as if they can draw conso lation from almost anything. But the idea of seriously boasting of the result in Clearfield, and that ''Senator Bigler may well be proud of his adopted county," is a little the strongest stretch of the imagination we have lately heard of. Two years ago Gillis had C20 ma jority in our county. This fall he bad but 417 maj. ; and one of the "Democratic members" had only 204. This we should say was going it crab fashion "progressing backwards" and if our brother Alexander can console him self with such a result, ha is easily pleased. He should not, however, we think, be "poking fun" at his "distinguished" friend. That is almost too bad. It is too much like "laugh ing at his calamities, and mocking when his fear coraeth upon him." Kentucky Moviso. The Louisville Journal contains a call for an "Opposition" State Con vention at Louisville, on the 22d of February next, to nominate candidates for .Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and other State officers. An invitation is extended to '"Americans and Old Line Whigs of Kentucky, and all others who are desirous of uniting in the overthrow of the present corrupt Administration of tho General Government. The Journal says : 'There is no good reason why there should not be a union of the Opposition strength ne cessary to success. With it, we shall carry the State by on old-fashioned majority, and the loundation will be laid broad and deep for a great national triumph in 1SG0." The French Emperor. The Liverpool JVer cury says, persons residing in Paris are of opinion that the star of the Emperor Napoleon is waxing dim. "That talent and intelligence of the country 8ay they, are exceedingly hostile to the present system ; the trades peo ple of Pans are all Orleanuts, and the work men are getting very tired ot the man of their choice. The speculators on change, are per haps, the only persons in France who hope the reign of Louis Napoleon may be a long one." On the same authority it may be sta ted that tho Legitimist party exists but in name. Col. .Forney made another characteristic po litical speech on last Wednesday night, at Camden. His hostility to the Administration is, if possible, stronger than ever.- He pro duced considerable merriment In the audience by announcing that The Press had been stop ped not the establishment, but the single copy taken by the President of the United States; adding, as "the bright side of the picture," that in a few days he expected to receive $7.50 in payment, which was almost the on! rfr.llar , he had ever received from the Administration.

Great efforts were made to obtain a pardon for Mrs. Twiggs, but they sailed. Public opinion is somewhat di vided in regard to her guilt, but the commu nity generally believed her guilty. On the scaffold she protested that she was innocent, and behavad with great fortitude. We are not in the habit of puffing patent medicines, hut when such an article as Du Vall's Galvanic Oil, which sustains fullv what it claims, is presented to the public, we feel no hesitancy in speaking the truth free of charge. Th above mentioned medicine has obtained for itself a world-wide name, never to go down with the common articles of the day. It is one of the very best remedies, for an kind of pain, that can bo produced. It often gives relief in five minutes. Troy Blade.

PENNSYLVANIA ITEMS. , , rKEPAKEB FOB THE "BAFTSMAN'S JOCRSAt." Blais CorjiTv. Another mysterious mur der has been perpetrated in Blair county. On the morning of the 20th, the body or a rnan was found on the railroad track m Altoona, fatally injured, but not quite dead. A mark on the left side of his bead was-doubtless made with a "slung shot," and there is no doubt of his naviug been murdered. From. papers found on his person it would "appear that his name wis Joseph Beiuier; that he was a native of Belgium ; and that he had lived some ten months at Latrobe, in this State. Letters of recommendation from Professors at St. Mary's College to Catholic clergy at Chicago ; a Passport from the Consul at Chi cago to Belgium ; and a through ticket from Chicago to New York were found on his per son, and some $3G money,' in quarters and halves. He was a stout built man, about 5 ft. 6 in. high and supposed to be between 35 and 40 years of age. It is thought that he was a passenger on the 3 o clock nignt train A little daughter ol Mr. Wm.

It was but a good Providence that he was not killed on the spot. Centre Covstt. Wo clip the following items from the Bellefonte Press, of Oct. 29: The central part of Pennsylvania, and par ticularly Centre county, is beginning to be in fested with a gang of horse thieves, whose or ganized operations are of a character which deserve the attention of the public and the Horse Associations. These adroit villains succeeded in stealing a very valuable horse from the iron works of Moses Thompson &: C., on Saturday evening last. The carters had just finished feeding, and were at supper themselves, when the horse was stolen. Pur suit in this instance was almost impossible, aud the thief has thus far escaped detection. . . . . One of the laboring men engaged on the Snow-shoe railroad, (Raphiles Section) died siulder.lv ou Monday last, from the effects of Mania-portu. ... A band of Gipseys have en camped a few miles from town for several days, trading horses, telling fortunes, and doing a little of everything but keep themselves clean . . . . Ihe corn-croD of Centre county, this year, Is one ot tiie largest and best ever gathered. The shipments to Bellefonte are are of the very best quality, and prices range from 40 to 45 cts per bushel. The potatoe crop is also represented to have been abun dant over the county. With an ample yield of these two articles, we can laugh a siege ot hard times to scorn. ... A new coal vein has been opened by the Bald Eagle & Allegheny Kail Koad Company measuring five feet in thickness, and seventy feet below the vein now mined- Immediately over the coal is a strata of Iron oar, measuring from 10 to 14 feet in thickness which has been tested, and lioved to be of excellent quality. ... The masonry at Beech Creek for the tressle work of the Bald E;:gle & Allegheny Rail Road consisting of two abutments about 30 feet high and twentv-two piers is completed and ready to receive the timber. Good judges pronounce this the best job of second class masonry they have ever seen. Indiana Cocntt. On the 19th, a car filled with fat cattle, took fire at Homer station on the Indiana Branch railroad, and before the flames could be extinguished, eight were burnt to death and the remaining one so severely injuredjthat it had to be killed next day.

TEMPEST IN WHIPPY SWAMP. Whippy Swamp is the name of a famous district, or township, in South Carolina, cele brated for its fogs and disunion sentiments, and the especial utterance of them the senti ments on tbe Fourth of July. The New York "Express" says there are not many in habitants in that particular swamp, but what of importance they lack numerically, be sure it is no fault of theirs if it be not made up in loud talk. Col. Keitt was down in the swamp, it seems, a few days since, and got off a regu lar fire-eating, nullification, Union deploring yarn, in the course of which he said : "I have seen it stated that all the Northern Democratic nominees for Congressare pledged to disregard the provision in the Conference bill requiring the ratio of population lor a meniler of Congress before Kansas should be admitted into the Union. This provision, just in itself, necessary to fair dealing between the members of the Confederacy, was incorporated in the bill with more than ordinary legislative solemnity. ' It was an agreement entered into under circumstances which invested it with the sanctities of a compact. To it faith was plighted. It cannot be broken by the Northern party to it without perfidy. If it be true that theNorthernDemocratic nominees arc pledged to violate it, then it shows to my mind that Northern fanaticism is increasing, and that re sistance to it is giving way. ii' the North breaks faith upon this point, the ties lctwcen ttie two wings of the party will be weakened if not dissolved. The South cannot hold com munion with those who betray faith and hound on fanaticism. If Kansas is now thrust into the Union as a Free State, against and over the provisions of the Conference bill ; if the South is to be outraged by seeing th's Terri tory, with its rele!Iioiis and marauding popu lation, and its licentious and anarchical agita tions, lassoed and dragged into the Federal sisterhood, in defiance of law and right and justice and pledged faith, then she must tear asunder party ties, and take her safety into her own hands. The fulfillment of the bond the South must and will exact, and any violation of it must be followed by retribution." That's the idea. The fire-eaters are bonnd to cany out the English swindle, il possible, and every Northern man who voted for it will be expected to support it to the end. A Swret and Pleasant Fellow. Michael Elk, who murdered his wife in Cincinnati, a few days ago, by plunging a knife into her bosom, gave as a reason lor the bloody deed that she had the phthisic, and had kept him awake all night by her hard breathing. He would, he said, kill anybody who disturbed his rest. Michael is said to be of an exceed ingly sweet and amiable disposition ! HEW ADVERTISEMENTS. A PPEALS FROM TRI-ENNIAL AS- - SES.SMt.XT.
