' MR VENABLE'S SPEECH. We have received a copj of the speech of the Hon. A. W. Venable, on the subject of the late case oi negro stealing io the District of Colum bia. We read it with satisfaction for it shews to the people of North Carolina, that Mr Vena ble is a true representative of their interests, views ana leelings; and is ever on the alert when their rights are invaded. He has shown that the high estimate placed upon his abilities, by the canoroi the Washington Union, when it was as certained that he was elected to Congress, was not overwrought. VIRGINIA. The result of the recent election for members of the Legislature, has resulted in the election of a large majority of democrats. In the last House of Delegates, the whigs had a ma jority of 7; in the next House, the democrats will have a majority of 15, being a gain of 22 members ! In the last Senate, the democrats had a majority of 10; in the next Senate, there will be a democratic majority of 12 ! RESIGNED. The Raleigh Standard announces that the Hon. Edward Stanly has resigned the office of Attorney General of the State of North Carolina, probably with the' view of going to the Legislature. 0C3- On the first page will be found an interest ing description of a human automaton, invented by an ingenious German. Also an account of the presentation of a flag to the 3d Regiment of Dra goons. Capt. Caldwell, who received the flag, and replied to the Colonel, is our own Green W. Caldwell, of Charlotte. CLAIRVOYANCE. A most remarkable case of clairvoyance was mentioned to us some weeks ago. One of our merchants, to gratify his'family, induced a young gentleman (of education and standing) who had been on several occasions " thoroughly magnetized," to consent to be put into the clairvoyant state" by a gentleman who had before magnetised him. The family then suggested an experiment, and the young man was told to go to a certain house in a certain city, and say who he saw there, and how the house was furnished, &c. He described everything as he said he saw it. He had never been there, nor had the gentleman who magnetised him. But the family declared that he had described the house, the furniture, and the persons in the house with the greatest accuracy. A letter was immediately sent off to the persons, to ascertain if he hud correctly described the dresses of the ladies, and what they were doing at that particu lar time; and the answers corroborate the state- ; mcnts of the clairvoyant. A member of the family has also been on, and is fully satisfied of the correctness, of the statements. It must be confessed these are strange. times we live in ! THIRTIETH CONGRESSlst SESSION. ; Mat 10. In the Senate, Mr Green presented a petition from Rhode Island, praying Congress to purchase Mount Vernon. Mr Dickinson presented a petition from eiti. zens of Champlain county, ' New York, praying for the port of entry to be moved from Plattsbury to Rouse's Point. - Mr Diz presented several petitions from New York, praying remuneration for the invention of a cast-iron plough by Charles Newbold.' Mr Underwood, on leave, introduced a joint resolution requiring the Commissioner of Patent to report annually on the prices of labor and the productions of agriculture and manufacture: which was read a first time, and ordered to be printed. ' On motion of Mr Westcott, the previous orders were postponed, and the Senate took up the bill for the relief of bona fide settlers under the act for the armed occupation of the Territory of Flori- : da; and it was ordered to be -engrossed, and passed. - . The consideration of the resolution submitted by Mr Johnson- of Maryland was resumed ; and Mr Johnson replied to the remarks of Mr Allen, vent the importation of spurious drugs and me dicines. ' : Mr Dickinson, presented a petition from 223 mechanics and workmen of the navy -yard, Wash ington, praying for the purchase of Mount Vernon. The Senate then proceeded to consider the bill to enable the President to take temporary mili tary occupation of Yucatan ; when Mr Miller spoke at great length against the bill. Mr Clarke submitted a resolution calling on the President to inform the Senate if any orders have been given to our navy to proceed to Yuca tan for the protection of the inhabitants ; and if so, to communicate a copy of such orders to the Senate, which was agreed to, and the Senate adjourned. " In the House, the day was occupied with the consideration of a bill on the private calendar, proposing to remunerate the legal representa tives of Benj. Hodges, deceased, for a slave cap tured by the enemy in the late war with Great Britain. The debate upon this bill took range into the question whether it is proper, in legisla tion, to recognize slaves as property. ' Mr Brodhead made an effort to introduce his joint resolution to amend the Csnstitution of the but, before he had concluded, he gave way f a United States; but it being objected to, the A fire at Detroit, Michigan, on the 10th inst.. destroy ed a lare amount of property, and burnt out about 300 families. - Hon Edmund Deberry has been appointed a delegate to the Whig National Convention, by the wliigs of the 3d Congressional District. The district convention expressed a decided .choice for ("I iv.- ' - - ' " - - - fetters similar to the above were addressed V- Messrs Perain and Dobbin, and received the 3ame signatures.- Faykttkvii.i.k, May 14, 1848.

If, however, I should be so honored iwith the public confidence as to become a . ,;member of the next Legislature, allow me to say that while Cumberland has many worthy sons who can represent her with Tnore ability, she has none who will strug - jle to serve her with more zeal and fidelity. , Very respectfully, vr - Your ob't serv't,- 4 ' ...

THE SENATOR FROM ARKANSAS. 5-- It was but a few weeks ago, that the Fay ettcvillc Observer said, upon the authority ot some one of its informant, that Major Borland, (recently-appointed ' Senator from Arkansas, in pi ce of Mr Sevier) was a very ordinary - man ; there being in Fayetteville more than one hun dred men more capable of being a Senator than he. We suspected at the time that the Observer only said so because he has not soul enough to think any " locofoco" as smart as the most " or dinary " whig ; and since then, we see that Mr Borland has delivered a very excellent eulogy, f considerable " length, upon his deceased col league, Mr Ashley. Mr Brecs paid the highest compliment to the eulogy, and said he doubted if he could say anything worth listening to after hearing that; indeed he said he was afraid of m-irring it, and destroying the charm with which it lingered on the cars of the, Senate ; and yet his early intimacy with the deceased called for some remarks from hira. We see, too, that a number of the newspapers have copied the eulogy of Major Borland into their columns. This shows that Major Borland's-services in Mexico are not sufficient to prevent the detrac tion of the whig press from visiting him; while it any thing is said against Gen. Taylor, or any whig officer, the whig press consider it sacrilege almost. We must mention a fact stated by Major Bor land, (who it also appears is a physician) to-wit: that although appointed a Senator from Arkan sas, he had not yet been a resident of that State five years. This shews, either that he is not a very-4 ordinary man," or that the Governor has done gross injustice to the State, and to many of its talented and older citizens. flC- The Whig State Convention of Georgia, nominated Gen. Taylor for the Presidency. It seems to have given dissatisfaction to some of the whigs, according to an article in the Augusta (G.) Republican. . The name of the Post Office lately called Laurel Hill is changed to Springfield M. W. McNair, Esq., Postmaster, and a neT Office is established at Laurel Hill, and Mr Wm. Briggs is appointed Postmaster. The Tost Office at White Hall, Bladen county, is called White's Creek, instead of Clear Greek, as published some time since. Observer. INCENDIARIES. We see notices in a number of papers, of fires occurring, which the citizens know to have occurred by other means than by accident." Every body should be on the alert. WISCONSIN Democratic Victory. The new State of Wisconsin comes into the Union demo cratic to the back bone. The entire democratic State ticket is undoubtedly elected. At last ac counts the democratic candidate for Governor was four thousand ahead of his whig competitor, and full returns would add to his majority. Both branches of the Legislature are overwhelmingly democratic. - J, J. JACKSON, Esq., we learn from the Pitts borough Communicator, has been elected Solic itor for Chatham county, in place of Mr Manly. motion forthe special order. Senate then resumed the consideration of the bill to enable the President to take temporary military occupation of Yucatan. " MrCass spoke at much length in support of the bill as it was reported from the Committee on Foreign Relations. Mr Davis of Massachusetts rose, and On motion of Mr Breese, the Senate proceeded to the consideration of executive business In the House, the vote on the resolution authorizing the Clerk to receive propostls for binding, was reconsidered, and the resolution re ferred again to the Committee on Accounts, with instructions to inquire into the printers' arrange ments fordoing the binding. The remainder of the day was spent in Com mittee of the Whole on the state of the Union, (Mr Cobb of Georgia in the chair,) upon the con sideration of the bill for the admission of the State of Wisconsin ; which was reported with amendments; but before final action could be had, the House adjourned May II, The Senate then resumed the con sideration of the bill to enable the President of the United States to take temporary military oc-j cupation of Yucatan. Mr Davis of Massachusetts then took the floori which he occupied until the hour of adjourn- ment, in an argument against an interference with Yucatan, because it would involve us xm the danger of a conflict with England, and Spain. He pointed at the course of the commissioner frem Yucatan, in opposition to a treaty with Mexico, which did not secure protection of Yuca tan ; and'hence inferred that it was the true in terest of that country to prevent the present treaty from being ratified Mr Miller obtained the floor, when the Senata adjourned. In the House, the bill for the admission of the State of Wisconsin into the Union was read third time aod passed -the amendment ia reIa- tion to certain grants of land being rejected. Mr Bocock's motion to reconsider the House concurrence in the Senate bill relative to the franking privilege, and the compensation of depu ty postmasters, with a view to increase the said compensation, was then taken up and agreed to; and the bill was referred to the Committee on the Post Office and Post Roads. The House then went into Committee of the Whole on the state of the Union, -(Mr Toombs, of Georgia, in the chair, and took up the consi deration of the revolutionary pension appropria tion bill ; when Mr Rockwell, of Connecticut, spoke an hour, by way of review, upon the an nail report of the Secretary of the Treasury on the state of the finances. The business in hand was then resumed, and the bill received sundry amendments reported from the Committee of Ways and Means; but the committee rose, at length, reported no conclusion, and the House adjourned. May 12. Ir. the Senate, the bill for the ad mission of the State of Wisconsin into the Union was received from the House of Representatives, read twice, and referred. Mr Douglas, on leave, introduced a bill grant ing to the State of Iowa the right of way, and a donation of public lands, for making a railroad connecting the Mississippi and Missouri rivers. On motion by Mr Davis of Mississippi, the Se nate proceeded to consider the bill explanatory of the act entitled " An act to raise for a limited time an additional forct, and for other purposes," j approved February 11, 1S47. The amendments were concurred in, and the bill was ordered to be engrossed for a third reading. It was then read a third time and passed The resolution-submitted bv Mr Johnson of Maryland, relative to nominations withheld by the President, was taken up for consideration. Mr Johnson spoke at great length'on the usur pations of the Executive in the application of the veto power to the bills for the improvement of rivers and harbors, and granting indemnity for French spoliations prior to 1S00, &c. When he had concluded, Mr Johnson of Louisiana, moved the postponement of the resolution which was agreed to. Mr llannegan said he was anxious that the Yucatan bill should be pressed through this week. If there was any disposition on eith er side of the Senate to keep that question open for the purpose of making political capital of it, he was not one concerned in it. He was for Yucatan, and if the motion to include to-morrow was persisted in, he must call for the yeas and nays. Mr Badger said he stood precisely in the opposite position. He was against Yucatan, and he hoped the motion to include to-morrow would prevail. . In the House, the Senate bill in relation to the franking privilege and the compensation of Post masters was taken out of the hands of the com mittee on the Post Office and Post Reads, by re consideration; and the bill was again passed with out further modification. ; - May 13. In the Senate, Mr Calhoun present ed a petition from citizens of Charleston, South Carolina, praying for a reduction of the rates of postage. Mr Davis of Mississippi presented a petition from A. King and Ceyler Youngoffering their own services and those of a body of volun teers raised by the petitioners, to assist the in habitants of Yucatan against their oppressors. Mr Mason presented a petition-- from Alexan dria, Va,, for some legislative measures to pre- uHouse adjourned till Monday. 'H te May 15. In the Senate on motion of Mr f Yolee, the previous orders were postponed , and the Senate proceeded to consider the bill con cerning school lands, in the State, of Florida, which had been amended in committee. The bill was ordered to be engrossed, as amended, and was subsequently passed. Mr Calhoun then addressed the Senate in op position to the bill, and to any interference with Yucatan. He gave as his opinion that England had no design to interfere; that our interposition was not in accordance with the declaration of Mr Monroe; that the cost and extent of any war in which we should become involved by this inter ference could not be ascertained! Some explanations ensued between Mr Cass, Mr Calhoun, and Mr Foote, in consequence of a remark of Mr Calhoun, that there were no har bors in Yucatan, which principally turned on the meaning of " colony " and " colonization ;" when Mr Bagby obtained the floor, and the further consideration of the bill was postponed until to morrow. The Senate then proceeded, on motion by Mr Davis, of Massachusetts, to consider the bill to provide for the ventilation of passenger vessels, and for other purposes ; which was ordered to be engrossed, as amended by the Committee on Com merce, I and was then read a third time, and passed. In the House, the bill to refund money for ex penses incurred, and subsistence or transporta tion furnished, for the use of .volunteers before they were mustered into service, was taken out of committee, put upon its passage, and carried $3- Lord Brougham applied to the new author ities of the French Republic for, naturalization papers, to enable him the better to protect bis property in France ; bat the Government inform ed him that he could not be Lord Brougham, an English peer, and citizen Brougham of prance, both at the same time ; so he declined the Boner. MARYLAND. The whig State Convention of Maryland passed a resolution instructing the delegates to the Whig National Convention to " use their best efforts to secure the nomination of Mr Clay ; and failing in that, then to vote for the nomination of Gen. Taylor." , Gt Capt Wm. J. Clark, who "was wounded in t he battle of the National Bridge, on the memo rable march of Major LaUy s train from Vera Cruz to Jalappa, has returned to Raleigh with his bride. He has entirely recovered from the e fleets ot his wound. . HOW IS THIS? We thought from reading some whig papers, that Gen. Taylor was ' powerful" popular in the Southwest ; but the following from the Natchez Free Trader, published in his own neighborhood almost, does not prove his popularity: Yesterday the great Taylor demon stration was held in the Court House in this city it was rather a slim affair small in numbers, wanting in enthusiasm and spirit, and altogether such as would be called a 4dead failure" if it was properly designat ed. There were so few present that it was deemed necessary for Col. Bingaman to deter ins great speech to last night, in or der to give time we suppose to make a bet ter rally of the no party whigs of the city.'' Richard H.Toler,Esq editor of the Richmond Whig, died in Richmond on Wednesday last. CANDIDATES. The Grcensborough Patriot of Saturday 13th, says: This being the regular week of Surry County Court, each party availed itself of the occasion, in accordance with custom, to hold political meetings. On Tuesday the. democrats held theirs, which was ad dressed by Robert P. Dick, Esq., in a speech marked with ability and strong par tizan feelings. His party were evidently well satisfied with it. - A committee of 25, appointed by the Chairman, (II. M. Waugh, Esq.. ) made the following nomi nations for the Legislature, to-wit, for the Senate, Allen Gentry, of Ashe; for the Commons, Jas. R. McLean, Chas. Whit lock, and James Sheek." The whigs nominated Col. A. B. McMillan for Jthe Senate from Surry and Ashe. The Com inpners were not nominated. The Asheville Messenger says that N. W. Woodfin is the whig candidate for the Senate from Buncombe. Henderson and Yancy. No op position. Messrs Thrash, Kelly, Cameron, (for midable names) are the whig candidates for the Commons. Mr Newton Coleman, a democrat, declared himself a candidate. .; ' . - The whigs of Chatham county h-ve nominated says the Communicator, Wm Albright, Tsq., for the Senate, and Dr S. McLenahan and Daniel Hackney and James Heading, for the Commons. The whig candidates in Northampton county are John M. Moody for the Senate, and Etheldred J.Peebles and David A.Barnes for theCommons. In Randolph county, the whig candidates are Alex. W. Hogan and Daniel Bulla for the Senate, and J. G. Hinshaw for the Commons. C. C. Battle, Esq., now in Mexico, is a whig candidate for the House of Commons in Wake county. Benj. F. Eborn is the whig candidate in Pitt county for the Senate, and F. B. Satterthwaite and Dr. E.'Blount for the Commons. A whig convention held at Hillsborough, to nominate a delegate to the Whig National Convention, from the fifth Congressional district of North Carolina, nominated Edwin G. Read, Esq., of Person county. The convention rejected a resolution declaring Gen. Taylor the choice of the district. - DEMOCRATIC FLAG."

In the late foreign, news, it is stat ed that the Society of the Jesuits have been or dered to quit Rome and its dominions forever. ' 0C5- We learn from the Raleigh Standard that Col. Reid met Mr Manly at Newbern, and fully sustained the expectations of the democratic par ty, showing the conduct of that party to be per fectly defensible. 5 l" a Bill reported to the House of Representatives by the Committee tm Com merce, the following appropriations - are proposed for the Cape Fear River: For a beacon light on the upper jettee, S3,500. For a beacon light on Campbell's Island, 83,500. For a beacon light at Orton point 83,500. For a light boat at the Horse Shoe, between the new inlet and Price's creek, S 10,000.
