ilr. a Clars 9Propoßition to Settle the
Slavery. Question.,
Correspondence of the North American
Mr. Clay has fulfilled the expectation
which was occasioned by the announce
ment made though this correspondence,
and offered a compromise for the adjust
ment of all the questions appertaining to
the territory acquired from Mexico. As
the publication of the proposition will
have been anticipated by telegraph, it is
only necessary to refer to its prdnfinent
features, for the purpose of elucidating
the remarks which are proper to this im
portant occasion. In brief, then, Mr.
Clay Proptities io eatis6 , the North and
South, by. admittin,,4 California as a State
with suitable boundaries; by assuming
the debit of Teids; iiti consideration of
her relinquishment of the territory
known as New Mexico; by establish
ing territorial governments over the
country not included within the limits
bf California, without the proviso ; by
providing legislation for the better re
covery of fugitive slaves ; by abolishing
the slave trade in this District, and de
claring it inexpedient for Congress to
abolish slavery without the consent of
Maryland and the people of the District
and payment for the slaves.
Mr. Clay supported his proposition in
a speech characterized by great ability
and eloquence, and took up the resolu
tions seriatem, defending each in its ap
propriate order, and maintaining that all
were necessary to the ndoption'of a com
promise in which both sections could
concur. There were passages in this
effort, in which he appeared for
the preservation of the Union, and invo
iced the patriotism of both parties that
were worthy of his best days, and will
survive while his fame as a statesman
and orator endures. When about con
cluding, he expressed the hope that the
resolutions would not be discussed at
present, but be allowed to lie over and
be printed, with a view of enablinc , the
Senate to consider them maturely before
being debated.
But it was evident from the moroetit
that the resolutions were read, that the
South was not satisfied, and Mr. Clay
had hardly resumed his seat, before Mr.
Butler, Mr. Berrien, Mr. Rusk, Mr. Foote,
Mr. Mason, Mr. Davis, of Miss., Mr.
King and Mr. Downs followed each other
in quick succession, with expressions
of dissent to the principles which the
proposition asserted. Mr. Mason, who
is usually moderate and composed, al
lowed himself to become deeply excited,
and denounced the resolution which de
clared that, as slavery was now exclu
ded by law in the territory, it was not
necessary to irripose a restriction: He
contended that this admission or assump
tion surrendered the whole question, and
with such a conviction, he could not sup
port the compromise.
Mr. Davis, of Miss. took extreme
ground, and attempted td prove that the
position now occupied by Mr. Clay was
inconsistent with the course he had
adopted twelve years ago. lie said that
cinder compelled him to declare that he
would sustain no compromise which did
not extend the Missouri line td the Pa-
cific, and concede the distinct recogni
tion of slaVery south of that parallel.
Mr. Clay was evidently moved ut this
announcement, and at the intimations
which had been thrown out, that, as a
Southern Senator, he was deserting the
sectional interests which he ought to
sustain. He took occasion to vindicate
the consistency of his present policy,
End then to meet the particular sugges
tion of the Senator from Mississippi in
regard to the recognition of slavery, by
affirming that no human power Could in
duce him to vote for any measure which
proposed to extend slavery tiorth or
South of the Missouri line.
This sentiment was expressed with a
solemnity and emphasis whtch seemed
to electrify the Chamber, and was an
etvered, from the galeries, with marked
demonstrations of applause, which the
presiding officer with difficulty suppres
sed. After some further discussion, the
subject was postponed until Tuesday
The Comprbmise presented by Mr.
Clay affects too many important inter
ests and involves consequences too seri
ous to be treated with levity. His expe
rience, the patriotic motiVes by which
he is influenced, and the public position
which he occupies, entitle him to the
justice, of A calm
. and honest examina
tion of the proposition in all its parts.—
If it fails to receive that favor which its
author naturally expects; it may sug
gest4e basis of an arrangement that
Will be more acceptable to the country.
Neither Mr. Clay, nor any one else,
could hope, in offering a compromise,
to accommodate the extreme opinions of
either section, or to rally a cordial and
prompt support upon its first presenta
tion. Compromise implies mutual con
cession; and, in the present excited con
dition'of sectional feeling, an exaction
like this is accompanied with serious
embarrassments. Entertaining, as an
humble individual, what may be tegar
ded as conservative views on this sub
ject, I am free to say, for one, that this
proposition asserts some doctrines, and
fails to assert others, which strike me,
at the outset, as presenting decided ob
jections to its support. This conviction
may be modified by reflection or by
amendments covering the difficulty.—
Othvp, whose opinions are of more con-
sequence to the public, have expressed
similar inclinations, and it is, therefore,
due to Mr. Clay, and to the question,
that it should be measured according to
all its relations before public judgment
is pronounced.
This proposition, so far as it relates
to the territory, differs materially from
the recommendation of the Preiclent,
in not recogniting the boundary adopted
in the constitution of Caltfortfia, and in
establishing territorial goiernfnents.—
Opinion may be honestly diiided upon
the Volley of these respectiJe views;
but there are Considerations which would
seem to giV'e a decided adiantage to at
least a portion of the recommendation
of the President. If the question of
limits is raised on the admission of Utti'
ifornia now, who can foresee what the
result will be hereafter 1 The example
of Michigan, in which an issue of boun
dary was raised with Ohio, cannot be
cited with force or propriety. One was
a contiguous territory, within reach of
every proper influertee ; the other is re
moved by thousands ofrOiles, and strong
ly inclined to try the experiment of an
independent government:
Southern Senators ; on the Democratic
side, disclosed enough of theit policy
to-day to satisfy the public that the mis
givings expressed in my recent letters,
as to the admission of California, were
well founded, and predicted upon the
most reliable information. If California
earl be kept out by their votes, and by
the aid of Northertt allies who sympa
thise with their sentiments; her Senators
and Representatives will be sent brick;
with the proof in their hands that the
party which professed most friendship
for California was that which, in the
hour of trial, exerted every power and
influence to defeat her admission into the

of the Superintendent of Common Schools
in this State, exhibit the following condi

The Mitchell Family.
The editor of the .dlbany Journal, in
writing from Washington, locations hay.
ing met at the President's levee two sis
ters of Mitchell the Irish Patriot, whose
efforts to enfranchise his down trodden
country have been rewarded by exile
and outlawry. They are in Washington
with their mother,
under the protection
cif a younger brcitlier, to whom secretary
Ewing gai+e n clerlcship, the duties of
which he is discharging faithfully. The
father of Mitchell was a Presbyterian
clergyrtian settled at Newry, The family
are well educated and agreeable;
las expresses the opinion that our annu
al production of Wool is not lets than
70,000,000 pounds ; and that it is worth
at present prices, about $25,000,000.
The importation of 1848 was 11,000,000
pounds, valued at $857,000. This whole
quantity is worked up by our own peo
ple; and the fabrics made from it are
consumed in this country:
DARK AND' CoLv.=ln an tfccount of the
recent expedition in search of Sir John
Franklin, it is stated they were eight
days without seeing the sun, and had the
thermometer fifty degrees below zero.—
They served out their rations of fith
proof brandy by chopping it up with a
hatchet, it being frozen solid. We don't
believe they're troubled much in that re
gion with fleas or bed bugs.
re-The number of hogs slaughtered
in Cincinnati, during the recent season,
is stated by the Gazette at 380, 555 head
including those killed in Covington.—
This statement shows a deficiency com
