CLEARFIELD, PA., NOV. 22, 1SG5.
Vallandigham visited Eaton, Ohio, a few
days since, to transact some business, when
it was noised about that he came to make a
speech. The result was that a number of
young men called at the hotel where he was
stopping, and upon Yal., ascertainig there
was trouble ahead, made a hasty exit from
the house. It seems the "Buckeye" boys
don't like traitors.

Death of Hon. Pieston Eng.
The startling intelligence of the death of
Hon. Preston King, Collector of the Port
of New York, by leaping into the'. Hudson
river, opposite New York, from a Iloboken
ferryboat, while laboring under an aberra
tion of the mind, on Monday morning, Nov.
13th, produced a profound sensation through
out the community, on receipt of the news.
Mr. King was born in the State of New
York, and settled in Ogdensburg, St. Law
rence county, then-a comparative wilder
ness. He studied law under an able and dis
tinguished member of the legal profession,
and was successful from the outset, for he
was diligent, methodical, learned and elo
quent He was moreover sensitively alive
to the public questions of the day, and soon
after reaching his majority, entered the po
litical arena, espousing the Democratic
cause. His peculiar and eminent fitness
for public service soon became apparent to
the part', and for several successive terms
he represented his district in the House of
Representatives, having previously, how
ever, served with distinction in the State
Legislature. In Congress, Mr. King, rank
ed among the ablest of its working mem
bers, and on many occasions distinguished
himself in forensic debate. Subsequently,
the tendency of the Democrat party compell
ed him,- for principle's sake, to abandon it,
and he entered into the spirit of the great
battle for freedom, giving to the" Repub
lican party, in which he rightly recognized
the true Democracy of the country, a mot
cordial and vigorous support. He was
nominated for Secretary of State, for which
office he suffered defeat, but he was after
ward elected to the United States Senate,
and served until the close of his term in
1SG3, when he was succeeded by Governor
.Morgan. Mr. King, was an active support
er ot Mr. Lincoln's administration, and the
warm personal friend of President Johnson,
upon whose accession tothe Chief Magis
tracy, Mr. King became Collector of the
Port of New York, succeeding Hon. Simon
Draper. Mr King, had been in oSce about
Important to Salt-River Residents.
The New York Herald of Monday. Nov.
6th, the day previous to the election in that
State, said :
"This contest in New York is the first
sharply defined skirmish for the in.-j le track
for the next. Presidency, which will proba
bly determine the governiug party, of the
country for fifty years to come."
Do you hear that? Fifty years? to browse
on the short pickings up Salt River ! That
is the result of the New Y'ork election ac
cording to the Herald. Poor, disconsolate
mortals, these Copperheads are. In New
York they tried to cheat the people and
themselves, by nominating soldiers and per
sons pretending to be Republicans. Rut
all to no purpose. The patriotic people
could not be deceived by any such miserable
pretence. After voting the war a failure at
Chicago one year ago, they changed front,
pronounced the war a success, and endors
ed Andy Johnson, and got boaren worse
than when they fought under their own pi
ratical flag. Rut, it is settled, according to
the Herald, far fifty years. The next dodge
is expected to be in favor of universal suf
frage and genuine Democracy. "All men
are equal," and the Democratic party al
icay favored it.
Johnson and Kilpatrick.
One of the most significant things, in a
political sense, which President Johnson has
yet done, is his appointment of General
Kilpatrick as Miuister to Chili, one of the
most desirable offices in the gift of the Gov
ernment. Kilpatrick, although rctainhis
his rank in the army, put in his time for
several weeks before the election in making
Republican stump speeches in New Jersey
and New Y'ork. One of his most telling
efforts was a speech delivered at Cooper In
stitute, New Y'ork, in denunciation of the
Democratic party of New York, for pretend
ing to support the policy of President John
son. In this speech, Kilpatrick asserted
with great positiveness that the President
had no sympathy with his pretended Demo
cratic friends and admirers. ' For this decla
ration he was roundly abused by Copper
head orators and Newspapers generally, but
the President has certainty given a very em
phatic endorsement to his words. We won
der what these Copperheads, who have been
saying so much about "ratifying" the Presi
dent, will say about the matter now. How
will they like to hurrah for Johnson and
Lost' its "Chick."
The Democratic party used to have, as
au emblem, the "Cock;" but for someyears
the Hen, and not the "Rooster" was conce
ded the most appropriate. All thai re
mained of the party (the hen) was one poor
little -'chick" (New Jersey) for which a
continual scratching and cockling was kept
up, as though the old ben had lots of chicks
to feed and keep warm. "The old hen (the
Democratic party,) loved her one chick (New
Jersey,) but the "Old Coon," regardless of
her cries carried off her last chic k, and the
poor old hen is alone in the world !

Correspondence of the "Journal."
Pittsburg, Pa., Nov. 15, 1S65.
Mr. Editor: This has leen, in a weath
er point of view, one of Pittsburg's men
weeks. Smoke, soot, and fog commingling,
press down, like a wet blanket, upon the
devoted city, obscuring the light of da-,
and, at as late an hour as ten o'clock, a. m..
making the sun look like a piece of faded
old calico pasted on a weather-beaten build
ins. A convention of the Episcopal church as
sembles to-day in Trinity church for the pur
pose .of electing a Bishop for the new dio
cese, which is composed of the counties
west of the Allegheny mountains. Consid
erable feeling has been engendered by the
effort to foist Dr. Kerfoot, of Maryland, up
on the new diocese as its Bishop. Dr. Ker
foot is one of those who speaks of slavery
and rebellion, as "national topics," "topics
civil and social," and "political manifesta
tions." He was also one of those who. on
the 13th of October, in the General Con
vention at Philadelphia, voted against Hor
ace Binney's resolution, which asked that
in the religious services to be appointed for
the day of thanksgiving "especial thanks be
"offered to Almighty God for the re-estab-"lishment
of the national authority over our
"whole country, and for the removal of the
"great occasion -of national distention and
"estrangement to which cur late troubles
"are due." It is true, Dr. Kerffcot, in a
letter, says that he personally thanks God
that slavery and rebellion are at an end ;
but he does not seem to think that they are
matters with which the church has any con
cern. Hence it is not surprising that his
loyalty should be questioned, and that he
should be regarded as truckling to the
Church South, which had at least one Bish
op (Polk) acting in the capacity of a Gener
al in the Rebel army, and which, even after
the rebellion had collapsed, manifested a
disposition to keep up a separate organiza
tion. Dr. Howe, of Philadelphia, who wa.
prominent when Bishop Stevens was elect
ed, and who lacked, I believe, but one vote,
will be supported by the opponents of Dr.
It is reported that a firm of extensive
cotton manufacturers, in this city, has fail
ed with liabilities amounting to perhaps, a
million of dollars. All sorts of rumors are,
as a matter of course, floating about, one of
which affected the standing of one of the
city banks. Though an officer of the bank
in question is an endorser of no tiifling a
mount of the paper of the firm, yet it is not
likely that the bank can in any way suffer,
unless it be as a creditor. Even, in this
respect, there may be an exaggeration, and
it is now understood that the firm is trying
to arrange an extension with the batiks.
The cause of the reported failure is not ful
ly known, but as the concern was heavily
"in the oil," that fact may furnish a better
explanation than a try thing el.;e.
ilou. George Y. Lawrence, member of
Congress elect from the Washington dis
trict, whose death was announced in the
papers of this city a few weeks since, is in
town. He is still feeble, but no apprehen
sions of recovery, from his attack of illness,
are now entertained. He has the rare.pp-.
portunity of reading his own obituary noti
ces, and knowing what people have to say
of a good man after he has "shuffled oiF
this mortal coil." I hope his "days may be
long on the earth," and that his constituen
cy will have the benefit of his ability and
experience for many years to ccaie.

Persistent in their Hate of Soldiers.
It was fair to suppose that the Copper
heads, alter the experience of the late elee
tions. would suffer the brave men who peril
ed their lives to preserve a country for these
sneaks, to live iu peace. ' But the copper
heads seem determined never to cease in
their persecutions of the soldiers. The lead
ers of this faction in New Jersey, though
scotched, are not yet killed. They retain
their venom even after they hove been ren
dered powerless iu their ability to strike.
The latest dodge, as we learn from the Sus
sex Herald, is the arrest ot a number of
prominent Republican politicians, on the
charge of bribery. Among those arrested
we notice the nanie cf Major General Jud
son Kilpatrick, whose eloquent Uarrangues
during the late political campaign were only
equaled by the dashing brilliancy of his raids
through Virginia. We suspect that the
Jersey rebels have caught a Tartar, or at
least have hold of the hot end of the poker.
If we do not greatly mistake the man, Gen.
Kilpatrick, who has stood before the guns
of an armed enemy, will not be found lacking
ing in personal courage necessary to meet
these Northern sycophants and hirelings.
We hope that this matter will be thorough
ly investigated, so that the snimus of the
Northern liek-st ittals may be clearly shown.

Losses in the' Navy.
It has been ascertained that during the
entire war the navy has lost only fourteen
hundred and six men in killed, and sixteen
hundred and thirty-eight in wounded, out
of the seventy-fire "thousand sailors and ma
rines who have been on the rolls. This is
inclusive of all losses in the grand battles on
the Mississippi, at Charleston, Mobile, and
Fort Fisher, and elsewhere. In a word, th
splendid victories of Farragut and Porter
have been aeiewti v. ;h less loss of mo
than that win. :i has I... i-n suffered in :i ::t
pie battle by & -in-";-' division of tro ; :.
This is due in part t she fact that the enor
mous range of our navy guns has in the
main kept the men out of musket range.
It js worthy of note that the whole expense
of the navy since the begiuning of the war,
including the construction and equipment
of all its vessels and their maintenance, has
been less than $20 000,000, or only about
seven and a half per cent, of the national
debt. Moreover, we have at the close of
the war, ships eno igh to show for the mon
ey spent to constitute what is probably a
better navy than that of either of the Euro
pean Powers. We have constructed, since
161, two hundred and ten vessels of war,
all of which are of the most improved model,
and contain all the appliances of modern of
fensive and defensive warfare.
.o More Faxons for Leading Traitors.
It is a fact thit the great majority of those
pardoned by the President are of a class
who, while they were identified with the
movements against the Government, were
not leading traitors were not in a position
to control the tendencies of treason. The
President has now declined to pardon any
more military or civil leaders of treason.
This is an important fact. The spirit which
first prompted the pr.-don of some of the
loading men in the South, was alike, patriot
ic and generously manly; out the spirit in
which Executive clemency has been appre
ciated by many of those who were the first
to enjoy it? advantages, has doubtless induc

The people of Wisconsin, according to

President Johnson's democracy has a
golden, not a copper halo. He has changed
the name of Fort Runyon (one of the forti
fications near Washington) to Fort Kilpat
rick, and has sent the gallant raider on an
important mission to Chili. This must cer
tainly mean that if Andrew Johnson had

over the appointment of Gen. Logan to the

is also asserted to have said that if this
country wanted a war with France, it could
have it "on demand." "I cannot believe,"

to say such a thing, but the story came
very straight from the French Minister's
house, and is said the remark was uttered
in the presence of an Amer'can. Mr. Sew
