Sentence Commuted—Extraordinary
Clemency.
RALEIGH, N. C., Dec. 5.
-
The Herald's special says : To the utter
snrnrise of the entire community here,
rcr.vf.rnor Holden has commuted the sen'
tfnoe'of the negro Alexander Willis, con
,i.mni to be executed to-day for the
murder of Anderson, to imprisonmend tor
life. It is a matter 01 conjecture among
many what could have influenced sucn ex
traordinary executive clemency. The mur
der was brutal and atrocious beyond com
parison and still excites the highest indig
nation among the colored citizens here.
A prominent Judge ot the Supreme Court
i3 reported to have said W illis has been a
lunatic his entire life. This may account
for the Governor's executive action.

for the Board Of Trade for Philadelphia.
He commenced by reading several propo
sitions favoring redemption of specie pay

also, that no further sales of gold shall be

be receivable for duties on imports; that-after

deemable in gold. He thought that the
