Ratified this, 11th day of January ,1841 A hard case. The Rochester Daily Advertiser, in an excellent article under the head "Deal Justly," intending to en force the importance of honest dealing and the faithful performance of promises,relate .i e . " - - uie louowing We knew a man of open and confiding disposition who had invested what he had of worldly goods, in the purchase of a farm paying part down and promising the rest at a future day. , I hat day was approach. ing, but not too rapidly for him, as he was prepared to meet its claims according to his promise. In the mean time, a re spectable" man, as the world goes, wish. ed to borrow mv friend a money for a few days, promising fuithfulW,to return it in time to meet the demand it was intended to satisfy. The promise was taken the mo ney lent The time came round, but not the fulfilment of the promise of the borrow; er the " respectable man" then and now found it convenient " to fail " with his bands full, while the one who reposed on his honor, lost his money and the farm it was intended U secure to him .with all he had previously paid. Did the consequences of this single broken promise end here f Far from it. The confiding, but duped man, reduced to penury, grew morbid and melancholy, and soon thereafter went down to the grave by a self-inflicted death. An expected bride was overwhelmed with sor. row, while his aged mother and sire were compelled to-end their days - in the- poor house. These were among the evils of a single broken promise a promise made without the remotest intention of fulfilling it Such are the consequences resulting from a disregard of the injunction to " deal jutWy.' . qacsflem ef Extra Seirfmn. With the Richmond Whig, Alexandria Gazette, Albany Evening Journal, If. Y. Loir Cabin. Cincinnati Republican,, and other respectable democratic Journals, and with Mr. Webster, we nave muy concur red in the opinion that an extra session of . ' , j :r ?t.i- Uongress-Shouia OB sveneu, u puastuio u do so, with due regard to the public inter esU. ... We have, howevee, on several oc casions, and as early as December last, ex. pressed our appreliension that the conduct of the expiring dynnsty would, render an early convocation of Congress absolutely necessary. The experience of the winter, thus far, has strengthened our impressions. The efforts of nearly every democratic member of Congress have been directed to the passage of such measures at this sea. sioh as would obviate the necessity of new legislation before the next regular meeting of Congress; but in vaim Tbe Loco-fo-cos have been as obstinate and perverse, as they are obdurate to all the crying wants ofihe country. They have resisted or im peded every democratic measure, and wast ed , more than two-thirds of the session in passing in one branch a five million Trea sury note bill, and in the other, in enact ing a prospective pre-emption law not at present called for, or necessary. : All bills, amendments, . or motions of relief, they have invariably voted down or refused to take up. The Loco-foco party going out, know very well that, they will leave behind them an exhausted Treasury, a decreasing revenue, and millions of suspended appro priations, unsettled claims? and dead debt. The liabilities of the Government, accord ing to Mr. Barnard s estimate, are c40, 380,000! And with a full knowledge of all this indebtedness,' with a full knowledge of the additional exactions of specie under the Sub-Treasury law, and of the fact that five millions of revenue is still to be cut off within the next twelve months by the ope rations of the compromise act, what do they propose T -iVfiat will they permit t Why the stoppage of all legislation excepting an act authorizing the issue of five millions Treasury notes.' Of this amount they will probably expend two milions before the 4th of March, so that Mr, .Wise's amendment, which has already led some to suppsse au thorizea five millions of Treasury notes to be issued by the new administration, in re ality authorizes not more . than two millions; an amount which would not last more than a month. But at best it is only borrowing of Peter Jo pay Paul, not knowing when or where theyn jrocurethejaeans tovjre imburse PeterT Islhls permanent, Tproyr provi- dent, sensible statesmanship? Is it more than postponing their own debts for Geo. Ilarnaon to pay without means T Beyond the embarrassments of the Gov ernment itself, look at the condition of the country ! A third time since Mr. Van Bu ren undertook the administration of public affairs, have the banks suspended payment a third time lias all confidence been dissi pated, and disaster and confusion, fallen like a pall upon the circles of trade and commerce. We have seen an hundred millions of banking capital struck out of existence within the last few years, and that which exists confined mostly to the vaults of banks. We have seen the chan nels of industry torn from those natural con junctions and mutually dependent relations. which are so essential to. tranquility and Drosneritv. "We see multitudes petitioning for the benefits of a national system of bankruptcy. We see the public stocks sinking to comparatively nothing. We see a majority of the States themselves strug. gling in debt-f end absolutely threatened with bankruptcy. Even Virgin ia, remaining comparetrvelyive7"wei see seeking a loon to pay her current ex. pensea. As for American credit, at home and abroad, it has received a shock from which scarce half a century will relieve it Nor is this paralysis confined merely to our fiscal and commercial affairs Ila. tends to our arms and defences. Our Ar- is nearly wfcoNy absorbed' in tneswamps of Florida our Navy is but a spectre on the sea, while in scarcely an instance are our coast defences in a condition to repel the invasion of an enemy. Great Britain knows all this, and hence seizes and search es our vessels with indifference, pushes on her settlements in Oregon K with impunity, and laughs at our demands upon her to set tle the Northeastern boundary of Maine, and the Northern boundary line of VViskon san. Have wrr no sagacity, bo resources, no patriotism X ' It is in the power of Congress to restore confidence, regulate the currency, lay a tax for adequate revenue, pay off tho pub lic debt created by Mr, Van Burcn, re-bur- nish and replenish our arms and ammuni tion, maintain our national rights, and re animate the Republic in such' a manner I that, if tranquility and prosperity are not fully restored and maintained, it will be no fault of the Government. Wil Congress ao tBIOessionT Tho way for beginning at least, to ac complish some, of these benefits, is clear. It is as clear to the present Congress as it possibly may be to tbe next. If it is not seen and pursued, it is to be attributed to the blindness of faction, and the pcrverse ness of Locorfocoism. Past experience admonishes us that little is to be hoped for from the existing Con- gress much less can be expected from the present Executive. ... The will of the peo ple cannot be executed until both these ob structions have passed owoy. Tlie moment they are removed, therefore, is it not prop er that immediate steps should be taken, to give to the country as soon as possible whatever benefits are to be derived from the great and radical changes in the men,' measures, and policy of the Government which the late elections indicated T. It will be for President Harrison and his Cabinet to determine whether an extra ses sion should bo called. We have nrrdoubr they will weigh well the arguments for and against such a step. And it the inconve nience, the expense, and the danger of pre cipitating legislation or of doing nothing, with other reasons calculated to raise doubt, outweigh those which grow out of the ne- cesshies of tbe Treasury ftnd tbe expects tions of the cxKintrythen, we frost, indeed expect that no extra session will be caHed. But if, on the contrary, tbe condition of fbe Treasury, the burdens of the Sub-Treasury operations, the state of the currency, &&,&., etc , are found to require new legislation, we cannot doubt, but that Con gress will be convoked at an early day. For ourselves, we are content to leave the whole question, to Gen. Harrison and his Cabinet, la whose justice and wisdom we have entire confidence, and we are dispos ed to leave their Judgment to be made upon the facts and tbe reasons they shall discov er for themselves, without any reference whatever to newspaper opinions. Madi- We have seen a eerie of letters m a Northern print, arraigning in so measured term tb conduct of the Secretary of ta Navy, and the decision of tb Court Martial, and exposing tbe conduct of certain officer of the Navy, which, if the allega tion be true, go to prove that there a crying and a pressing necessity for a thorough overhaul. ftg of our naval System.

We casually mentioned a day or two ago, that the newly elected Mayor of BehX more was a short timesincea Journeyman printer. Tbe instance are not rare in which those bred to the profession of printing, have become distinguish ed and honored. To y nothing of Franklin, tbe beaeoa light of the craft, we have in our day more than one in. stance of this honorable distinction. . Isaac Hill, the Governor of New Hampshire, was a journey. man printer ; Samuel T. Armstrong, late Mayor of this eity, was a ioarneyroaa printer; Mr. Knapp, the Secretary of the State of Vermont, was a prin ter. And what is of more consequence in the editorial profession, some of the most distinguished were regularly bred in the craft. ' Oar neighbour breen, the popular editor of the Morning rost, was once a ragged little roller boy. Mr, Homer, of the Gasette, wa brought up on Pic and Br. strrv rw recollect many year since of seeing a tow-headed overgiown boy, in an obscure printing office in Vermont. That boy know Mr. U roe ley, the talented editor of the New Yorker. Of equally obscure origin wa the editor of the N. Y. Spirit of tne Time. Mr. Wm. I . rorter. The first we ever saw of Deacon Weld, the edi. torof the New York Sun, and cleref writer for various magazines, &C-, wa in a printing office at liowell, when be wa no higher in trade than " printer deril." Tbe troth is, if a man b a ge nius, the art of printing will draw it out and set it to work. Printers, with the same amount of nat ural talent, always make the most popular editor. because they imbibe the tact of the profession. bcbooled among ".type and shadows," they have erery opportunity of studying public tasto, and of oirerung ineir Bunas so a 10 meet uie various readers. The discipline of their joind may not he so sever and rigid a that required for emi. ncuee In tne legal profeeMon; but this Is a pceub. arity which the great mass of the people care no. uung about, and it t unfavorable to the free inter. change of mind with mind.

A girt, for example, snakes an im provident marriage; she puts her neck mto the noose with hereyes shut, and when she find it an iron chain instead of a silken chord, she lay the fault not upon her own indiscretion, but upon her destiny; while her friends, not more reflective than herself, console ber with the assurance that marriage are made in neaveu. .

But what! 'aye there was the rub! our town, what little there is of it, has no thing transpjring about it, out of which we could make readable matter; so we turned to tho country, and at first, it bethought us to tell of the tliray heights the craggy precipices, and pendant horrors of the cliffs along the French Broad River, which roan, foams and dashes along over ten thousand rocks. " But then we recollected bow many newspaper andjnagaxiD0 writers bad at tempted this already, and thought it would be idle to swell the number of those who .have gone on ', ' ..' H Snivelling, drivelling nonsense without end," merely to fill up tbe columns of their pa pers ; so we abandoned that idea at once Next we thought of the Teruree falls in Georgia, which we bad tbe pleasure of vis iting not long since. Here thought we, is an admirable subject then to work." But stayVTetVayeaTplanr-IIoW" shall we write! Let's see, first give the geography of the country, its latitude and longitude, soil and productions. Secondly, its histo ry 1st, under the different sachems or In dian chiefs 2ndly, its grant to Oglethorpe and the adventures-ofJus settlers, with all the important changes, down to the time of thej-evolutionary war -3d, during the rev. olution, how many whigs and how many tories were; there, and 4th, from tbe revo lution to the present time. Then as a third general division,-we must note therdiscov. course, width; depth and length of the river and lastly the falls themselves, tbeir number, height, depth of the water at the foot of eacb their means of access- height and appearance of the cliffs on each tide ; the eagles that annually nestle there how loud and shrill they scream the feelings of tbe visitor and finally the scenery as a whole, when all the particulars are summed up. This was the plan,, and no wonder we in despair gave up the thought of writing on Ibis subject. But why did you not write a plain, account of tke fall without 'all this rigmarole T A plain ae count, indeed ! who would read a plai common sense article in these days ! who will read any thing that has not been heat ed in tbe furnace; of political excitement or carried through such a round of romance as to give it more shadow than: substance No! every thing to take in these days, must have a great long preface.' If a law yer speak, his preface must be as long as his argument If a political aspirant de claim before a popular assembly, or a legi Iator bold forth, be must hem and haw and tell what he it going to say, and what be it not going to say, until he ought to be through with his speech. And if a minister preach, he must have a long preface; drag along until he gets toabout ninthly," and then concludeas be may be enabled.
