Extraordinary Births. A la

now residing in Wolf creek town

cently from Ireland, has had five
little children at one birth! They
all died shortly after. Previous
to her leaving Ireland, this same

facts were stated. The "brown

823,000,000. They are said to
consist of 30,000 souls. One of

which appear uider a typhus character,

Law. The Superior Court of Law

Gen. Jackson and Mr. Clay. Our
readers are presented in this parser with
the substance of Mr. Clay's speech at
Lexington, in reference to the proposi
tion made to Gen. Jackson. The com
ments on the specific terms of the pro
position we have omitted, n no positive
proof has appeared that Mr. Clay sanc
tioned them this must be decided be
fore a Committee of Congress, as it is
evident that the "whole truth" can only
become at in that manner Mr. Clay's
friends will not testify against him un
less upon compulsion; and there are but
few of his opponents who would volun
tarily encounter, the denunciations utter
ed in advance by Mr. Clay. There are
three other prominent features in Mr.
Clay's speech, which we will notice in
the Older in which they stand: 1st. Mr.
Clay says it can be "proved" that before
leaving Kentucky the preceding fall, he
expressed his "fixed determination not
to vote for Gen. Jackson;" hence he
could not have authorised any proposi
tions which might have been made to
him. In an address to his constituents
after the Presidential election, Mr. Clay
in attempting to justify his conduct on
that occasion, observed:
(:l found myself transformed
from a candidate before the peo
ple to an elector for the people; I
deliberate! examined the duties
incident to this new attitude, and
weighed all the facts before me
upon which my judgment was to
bo formed or reviewed. If the
eagerness of any of the heated
partisans of the respective candi
dates suggested a tardiuess in the
declaration of my intention, I be
lieved that the 'new relation in
which 1 was placed to the subject,
imposed on me an additional ob
ligation to pay some respect to
ddtcaai and decorum"

is an evident contradiction between thjs

be proved if Mr. Clay appeals t0

(Mr. C.) left there. This fact, it
is proper to state, is not derived
from Gen. Jackson himself, but it.,

ty of which Mr. Clay himself can-j,
not impeach. It is a fact, that
iur. Jiay, alter lie nau ascertained '
that he was net returned to the
House, did walk across Pennsyl
vania Avenue to salute Gen.
Jackson congratulated him on,
the vote which he had received,
and said that he had no doubt
that Gen. Jackson would be elec
ted by the House. It is a fact,
that Gen. Jackson, instead of invi
ting Mr. Clay to participate with
him in the cares of State, said, that
he would endeavor faithfully to
discharge the duties which would,
in that event, devolve upon him.
It is a fact, which can be proved
by witnesses now in this city,
that Mr. Clay did, afterwards call
at Gadsby's, where Gen. Jackson
then boarded; that he enquired
whether Gen. Jackson was in;
that the bar keeper went up to ;
Gen. Jackson's room to ascertain 6
whether Mr. Clay could be admit
ted; that Mr. Clay remained below
until the barkeeper returned with
an invitation from Gen. Jackson,
and then spent some time, tete-a-tete,
with the dangerous military
chieftain. It is a fact, that, in the
uicu oi luesu liiuis, nil . vyiay an- ;
thoriscd the Journal to say that
he did not call on Gen. Jackson,
exceot to leave his formal card."
With these extracts before them, our
readers will doubtless he convinced, that
Mr. Clay "labors under some extraordi- 1
nary delusion," in reference to this fact. t

Gen. J. is "incompetent," "devoid oi

the principles of humanity." If Gen.
J. has in some instances trampled on the
constitution of his country and violated
the principles of humanity, which wean
not prepared to admit, his acts wen
