it ha been raining almost incessantly, with
only one, two, or three days' intermission

issued his Proclamation, directing an elec

Extra Session. It appears that Con
gress is to nv-et on the 3 1 t May. VVc
lay the following ollieial Proclamation
from the official piper (the N. Intelligen
cer) before our readers. The onlv reason
specified for the call is the state of the Fi
nancesbut the Clique, who surround
Gen. Harrison and controlled his course,
even before he reached Washington,
thought fit at that time to trump up the ve
ry same reasons for the rail. The call,
therefore, is made, not in consequence of
any discoveries which they have made in
the state of the finances, since they hive
come into power: not so much even from
considerations connected with the resour
ces of the Treasury, whbdi it was in tin
power of the list s.'SMon to understand and
provide for but really to cury out the
great measures of the Administration.
They wish to abolish the Sob-Treasury,
and to lay the foundation of a National
Hank to distribute the proceeds of the
Publi Land-, and to devise a new svtem
of Tariff. These are the greit objects
they have in view, and which they wish to
carry out, before their motley party break
to pieces, before the people have time to
awaken from the dangers that surround
them, and before Ihe Suite Legislatures can
meet to instruct their Senators.
Vy the President of the United Slates of
Whereas sundry important and weighty
manors, p'incipilly growing out of the
condition of the revenue and finances of
the country, appear to me to call for the
consideration of Congress at an earlier day
than its m xtannual session, and thus form
an extraordinary occasion, such as renders
ne.-essary, in my ji'lgm-nt, ihe convention
of the two Houses as soon as may be prac
ticable, I do, therefore, by this my Procla
mation, convene the two Houses of Con
gress, to meet in the Capitol at the city of
VV ashington, on the last Monday, being
the thirty-fir't day of May next. And i
reqnire the respective Senators and Repre
sentatives then and there to assemble, in
order to receive such information respect
ing the state of the Union as may be given
to them, and to devise and adopt such mea
sures as the go(.d of the country may seem
tothem,in the exercise of their wisdom
and discretion, tori quire.
In testimony wlWtof, I have caused the
seal of the United Slates to be hereunto af
fixed, and signed the wme with my hand.

Thc condition of the revenue and finan- j
cesi"Vhy this call was inuicai.., u.
forc Congress met, in the Message of the
Governor of Kentucky. And it is a fact,
as the Globe states, that as soon as Con
grew met, Mr. Clay p.onounced that there
must be an Extra Session to repeal the In
dependent Treasury. It was no discovery
of the condition of the finances, made dur
ing the Session, or since, which seems to
have principally prompted the call. It is
lrt f-.an unon our necks the obnoxious
measures of Messrs. Clay, Webster & Co.
g3ttThc following is Vice President
Johnson's Address to the Senate, upon his
relinquishing the Speaker's Chair in that
'In taking my leave of this body no
language is adequate to express my feel
ings. 1 have been associated many years
in the councils of our common country,
and it has been my great pleasure and hap
piness, that my personal relations have al
ways been kind and friendly, without dis
tinction of party. I was elected to the
place I occupy by an equal vote of the Elec
toral Colleges, and a majority of the Peo
ple. "After having served my country for
thirtv-lwo years two years in the Legis-
litm-o orwl thirtv vears in the service of
the Government it is natural that my re
membrances should be awakened to the
pat. My situation here has been plea
sant and agreeable. Such has been the
generous and magnanimous course of con
duct of all towards me, that it could not he
otherwise. If, in the discharge of my olli
cial duties, I have ever failed to meet your
approbation, it has been rather from the
want of ability than of will. My intentions
have always been, to preside with impar
tiality and justice.
4 ' The place I hold is hereafter to be oc
cupied by a distinguished son of Virginia,
and in leaving the place I occupy, it is
with no feeling of dissatisfaction towards
any one, or towards the verdict of the peo
pie against me: I have always bowed, ami
shall always bow in deference Jo the will
of the majority. Permit me to take tin's
occasion to bid you an atfeclionate farewell.
Whatever destiny may await you, my best
wishes attend you, both in your affairs in
ibis world, and in your destiny in the
world to come."
Col. Johnson exhibited much emotion
during the delivery of this valedictory.
Mr. Mangum moved a vote of thanks, upon
which Mr. Clay, of Kentucky, paid a high
compliment to the impartiality of Col
Johnson as Speaker of the Senate, and to
his long and various public services.

New York and Georgia. The Govern
or of New York has made a demand on the
Governor of Georgia, for the surrender of
Hubert F. Curry, charged with the crime
of forgery under the laws of the former
Stale. Curry was am sled in consequence
of this demand, whirh will be complied
with whenever a similar demand for the
surrender of Peter Johnson, Edward
Smith Salsaac Gansey, heretofore charged
wiili felony under the laws of the State of
Georgia, shall be complied with by the
Governor or other authorities of the State
of New York. The Executive of New
V01U has refused to accede to demands of
a like nature, both from Virginia and Geor
gia; and has now an opportunity of exac
ting by according justice. The constitu
tionality of the demand is not denied by
either of the Southern States above-mentioned;
but Gov. Seward having denied it
in the case of slave-stealers, we do not see
how he assumes the right, upon his own
Mi mm. Clay and King. We have the
heartfelt satisfaction to announce that the
difficulty between these two distinguished
Seuatois, after reciprocal explanations,
thro' the intervention of Mr. Preston, in
the Senate, on the 15th, was satisfactorily
and amicably adjusted. The Globe states: her. had secured the confidence and cs-j
that "after it was done, Mr. Clay advane- teem of a large number of friends. She

shook hands, and irreeted each other;" keenly alive to the wants and the happi
and further remarks, that "the settlement
of the dispute was highly honorable to
both parties." Ral. Star.

(pThe Superior Court of this County
was in session this week, Judge Pearson
Richard, the slave of Mr. John Tapp.
charged with the murder of Mr. Tapp and
his son three weeks ago, was tried on the
indictment for the murder of the son, and
convicted. He has been sentenced to be
hung on Friday the 16th of April next.
Jarrot, slave of Mr. Trotter, .of Person,
charged with the murder of Thomas Chath

sentenced to be branded at four o'clock on
Saturday, and discharged. Jarrot was
convicted at the Superior Court of Person
for murder; the case was afterwards taken
up to the Supreme Court, and a new trial
ordered; it was then removed to this coun

ness of others. By the urbanity of her
manners and the frankness and uniformity
of her deportment, she found an easy ac
cess to the hearts of all who were ctpable
of appreciating those endearments and esli
mable qualities; she was the centre of affec
tion and idol of her now bereaved and
disconsolate husband, and perhaps too dear
ly prized by her family. Dutiful and af
fectionate as a wife, a daughter, and ar
dent and devoted as sister candid and
confiding as a friend, she was beloved in
life and is now tendeily mourned in death.
The void which this heavy bereavement
has made in the domestic circle must long
befell; ami the only consolation which
can sooth the bosom thus bleeding and
wounded, is the rich consolation of reli
gion. She made profession and united
herself 10 the C. P. church in the year 1839
and so lived until her death.
I have taken much pains to know every

of all acceptation that Christ Jesus came
into the world to save sinners. To this 1
