Neto Paper.-We have receivud the three r
first numbers of a paper, published at Char
lotte C. H., Mecklenburg county., N. C.,
tinder the title of the " Mecklenburg Jef
rersoniau," by Jos. W. Hampton, Esqr.
The " Jefrersonian" is of the good old I
Democratic stamp, and wv sincerely hope
the publisher may reap a good harvest, in
" well doing."
The Hon. Samuel L. Southard, of N. J.,
has been elected President pro tem. of the
Senate of the United States, which bedy"
adjourned sine die, on the 15th ult.
The Washington Correspondent of the
N. York Commercial Advertiser, writing
u:nder date of the 15th March, says:
1 Mr. Crittenden, the Attorney General,
leaves this afternoon for Lockport, New
York. He takes with him an authenticated
copy of despatches from the British Go- c
vernment, containing the distinct and un- d
equivocal avowal of the burning of the I
Caroline. And upon this ground our go- v
vernment will request the release of Mc- b
Leod-and for this purpose has Mr. Crit- n
tenden gone. If he is not delivered up, it o
is understood Mr. Crittenden remains to be 1:
present at the trial, though he will take no
part.
We lay before our readers the Farewell
Address of Adjutant General JoNEs, to the
Militia of South Carolina, accompanied
with the remarks of the talented Editor of c
the South Carolinian. On account of in- d
,disposition, we are forced to defer our own
remarks until a future day.
From the South Carolinian. C
TO THE MILITIA OF S. CAROLINA. c
Having tendered to the Commander-in
Chief my resignation of the office of Ad- I
jutant and Inspector General, I cannot look
forward to the dissolultion of those ties by
which we have been so long united
strengthened and consecrated as they are
by so many gratifying recollections-with
out being affected by ;the strongest emo
tions; nor can I permit the occasion to
pass without bidding you an affectionate
farewell, and offering to you individually
and collectively, my best wishes for your
success, in all your pursuits, whether as
citizens or soldiers. Profoundly grateful
to you for your orderly aid respectful de
portment towards me while olliciating as
your Military Instructor, and to the State, I
for the flattering proofs of its partiality and
confidence, which I have repeatedly expe
Srienced, I should do violence to my feel
ings were I to retire from the office with
which I have been honored, without a pub
lic expression of these sentiments, and 1
without explaining the motives which in- t
duced my resignation. r
I accepted this high and responsible trust, I
in the hope and belief that I could " ren- s
der the State some service," by devoting
my best efforts to the improvement of the
discipline of our Militia, so as to render it,
in fact, as it is in theory, the great bulwark t
of our civil and political institutions. I be- t
lieved that the Legislature, admonished b
by our then recent experience, had devised
SJ.04:Wj imfaithfellvexecuted, would
fulf1 all the hopes of patrfotism, by provid
ing a body of intelligent and well instructed
Officers, at all times prepared to conduct
the troops of the State, when any public
emergency might call them to the field.
This system. as you are awvare, was re
pealed by the Legislature, at its recent
session; and though I may not presume
to question the wisdom of that body, in
adopting that course, I may be permit ted,
without arrogance, to decide upon the di-a
mtinished yalue of my owvn services, pro
duced by it. Conscientiously believing I
that any services I could now render would
be purely nominal, I cannot but feel that 1
owe it to the State, not less than to my- I
self, to retire fromastation in which I cait
he no longer useful, and where my coin
pensation would he withot an equivalent
return ofhbenefit to the ptublic.C
A Board of Officers, appointed by the
Legislature, at its session in 1838, to digest
the Militia Law, submitted the result of ae
careful and laborious examination of the
subject, in the form of a Bill, embodying
what was conceived to be the whole Mili- I
hia L aw of South Carolina, dlivested of the
intricacy pro~duced by a miul:iplicity of
conflicting enactments, and intelligible to
all. I cannot otherwise regard the rejec
tion of that Bill, by two successive Legis- '
latures, than as the highest evidence of the
declining importance of the Militia, in the
estimation of the State, and believe ty
any future efforts on my part, to revivegan
efficient system, would not be apprectj itedt
or sustained.
In taking leave of you, and of-the ser-r
vice of our 1"-oved State, I beg you to lie b
assured, that the deep interest I have here.
tofore felt in your Military improvomcnt is g
id no degree diminishpd, and if a conjunc-p
ture should occur, in/which South Caroli- i
na may be constrairned to defend her fire- o
sides and altars, I shall always be prepar-n
ed to rally wi'h you under the Palmettov
banner, and devote myself to her defence,.
in any rank she may be pleased to assign
me. Again, brother officers and fellow
soldiers, I bid you an affectionatc fare- 1I
well. JAMES JONES.
COLMBIA, March 22, 1841.
From Mue SoutM Carolinian. r
RESIGNATION OF AD.T. GENERAL JoNE.S..
Our readers cannot but unite with us init
the sincere regret we feel at the iesigna
tion of so valuable and efficient a public
officer, as the late Adjutant General of this li
State, whose farewell address "To thea
Militia of South Carolina," will be founde
in our paper of to-day. But especially, wec
think should they regret with us the unifor-s
tunale cause of it-the abolishment of Bri -
gade Encampments-which, with the re
zurn tothe old system of Company Courts
Martial-(a virtual abolishment of all Com
pany fines, and consequently of Company
duty)-must soon effect so general and
thorough a derangement of the whole Mili-t
tia system anid organization of the State,
that it might as well have been abolished
altogether. In this, the resignation of Gen- gj
eral Jones leaves no dotubt that he fully
agrees with us: and while his generous, t
manly, and disinterested resignation of an h
office in wvhich he is deprived of the power t
en rendear ny efficient public servicaen ca-.
iut rail to command respect and regard. <
ve trust it will serve to awaken the peo- 4
Ie to a proper sense of-the great and latal <
rror of the Act of the last session. The
;tate had begun to acquire much credit I
Dr its military organization; and we great- 1
y mistake the signs of the times, if a re- i
urn to it will not soon he absolutely essen- I
ial to the safety of the State and the peo
le. Can any one look around him and
lot see that they are deeply portentous of
anger, both from within and without
uch danger as rendered the present mo- 1
nent the last of all, for utterly breaking
lown the military organization & strength
if the State, and throwing away, as tho'
literly worthless, the valuable knowledge
md discipline that have been attained with
a much labor and expense. We have not
vords to express our mortification at this
xtraordinary movement; and. it is the
riore surprising to us, as, so far as we have I
een, or learned from ot hers, the oppositioti
> the Encampment system seemed to be
onfined almost exclusively to those who
id not perform tho Encampment duty.
'hose who did, appeared to us generally
tell satisfied with it, and most of them
ighly pleased with it; while its most cla.
lorous opponents were men who bore none
f its burthens. and seemed actuated mere
F hy the desire of making it a political
obby, on which to ride into popular fa
'or.
What is worth doing at all, is worth do
g well; and as it is so done, or other
rise, is the labor expended on it rewarded,
r thrown away. If it be desirable to have
Militia, let it lie an ef'ective one, and
ne that will be a credit to the State, not a
isgrace to it, and a useless hurthen. If
r be not desirable, why not do it away al
gether, and not make a mere mockery of
-a thing of utter scorn and contempt,
alculated only to destroy every particle
if military pride and patriotism in those
ngaged in it, and to banish military know
edge and experience entirely from the
ountry.

A PROCLAMATION.
WHEREAs sundry important and weigh
y matters, principally growing out of the
ondition of the revenue and finances of
he country, appear to me to call for the
onsideration of Congress at an earlier day
han its next annual session, and thus forni
in extraordinary occasion, such as renders
iecessnry. in ny judgment, the conven
ion of the two Houises as soon as may be
racticable, I do, therefore, by this. my
)roclamation, convene the two Houses of
,ongress. to meet in the Capitol, at the
$ity of Washington, on the last Monday,
ieing the thirty-first (lay of May next
kid I require the respective Senators and
tepresentatives then and there to assen
ile, in order to receive such information
espectina the state of the Union, as may
ie given to them, and to devise and adopt
uch measures as the good of the country
nay seem to them, in the exercise of their
visdom and discretion, to require.
In testimony whereof, I have caused
he seal of the United States to he hereun

The Offcial Circular.-We have read
his dlocumetnt with much pleasure'. It is
speedy practical fulfilment of at least
ne inautgural pledge. It forbids such of
cial interference with elections as may
ritg the patronage of the general govern
ient in conflict with their freedom; but al
wa and even couris, in federal oflicers,
'the free and proper expression and main
enance of their opinions respecting public
nen or public mecasure6," and '-the exer
ise to the futllest degree of the constitution
1 right ofsuffrage."
The detertinitation. expressed in the cir
tlar, promptly to dismniss all delinquentI
meiers ini money matters is also a praise
torthy step), and should he rigorously en
irce.-Chaarleston Curier.

DEPAaTM1ENT OF STATF.,
Marecb 20, 1841.
'o the Hion. Thomas E wing.
Secretary of Treasury:
Sir: The President is of opinion that it
Sa great abuse to bring the patronage of
he General Government itnto conflict with
ho freedom of elections, andl that this
huse ought to be corrected wherever it
na have been permitted to exist, and to
elrevetnted for the future.
He therefore directs that information beI
iven to all offcers and agenits in your De
art menti of the public ser vice that partisan
iterference in popular election., whether
f State offcers oir offeers of this Govern
ien, and for whomsoever or against
homsoever it may he exercised, or the
ay meat of any cotribution or assessment
n salaries or omfcial compensamion for par:
y or election purposes, will be regarded by
itm as a cause of removal.
It is not intended that any officer shall
e restrained in the free and proper ax-.
ression andC maintenance of his opinions
especting public men and public measures,
r in the exercise, to the futllest degree, of
h constitutional right of suffrage. But
ersons employed unider the Government,
id paid for their services out of the pub
c Treasury, are not expected to take an
tivo or officious part in attempts to influ
ce the minds or votes of others; such
onuct being deemed inconsistent with the
piit of the Cotnstitution and the dluties of
ublic agents acting under it, and the Pro
ient is resolved, so far as depends upon
im, that while the exercise of the elective
ranchise by the People shall he free from
ndue influences of offcial station and au
tority, opinion shall also he free among
e officers and agets of the Government.
The President wishes it further to he
nnounced and distinctly utnderstood, that
-om all collecting and disbursing offcers
romptitude in rendering accouints, and en
re punctuality in paying balances, will
e rigorously exacitd. In his opinion it is
me to return, in this respect, to the early
,...tice of Governmen, andto ol ny
legree of delinquency on the part of those
utrusted with th-e public money just cause c
if immediate removal. Ile deems the se- i
Pere observance of this rule to be essential m
o the public service, as every dollar lost to i
he 'Treasury by unfaithfulness in office '
treates a necessity for a new-charge upon .
he People.
I have the honor to be, sir, your obe
lient servant. t

From the Charleston Mercury.
On the nomination of Judge Daniel-com
ng before the Senate, it will he remember
d. that Mr.-Clay, to prevent a quorum, 1
narched out his Senatorial followers, Mr.
?reston retiring for a while behind the
?resident's seat, and afterards, absenting
fimself, whether " accidentally and unin
entionally," is not said, but being absent
vhen the vote was taken, and by such ab- I
ence meeting I the potential" wish of Mr.
3lay, as much as if he had gone with the
egular march of the rest of the rank and.
ile. Alluding to this dignified scene, and
he opening ofMr. Clay's drivership in the
ienate, Kendall's Expositor says:
" What is our country to expect from i
Party which submits itself to such a lead
r? Already we have secession from the
:enate, violation of a contract, gross at
acks on private character, and an attempt
o silence those who would attempt to de
'end the victim b) deliberate insult and an
appeal to the Pistol !!"

FIRE !-On Monday morning last, be
ween the hours or three and four o'clock,
sur citizens were alarmed by the cry of
ire, which w"as ascertained to be in the dry
;ood store of Mr. Benjamin Mordecni, in
herman's Building, Main street. Great (
lihiculty was at first apprehended in gain- I
ng access to it, for ;abhotugh the whble 4
ittilding and street were filled with smoke.
was some time before the firemen were
tble to determine in what part of the store
he fire existed, and they were -fearful of
petning the doors and admitting a current I
f air, lest it should cause a more rapid ig- i
it ion. T'wo enterprising individuals, how-(
ver, made an entry with a hose and pipe,
brougha a middle door in the passage,
rawling on their hands and knees, to prc
'ent suffocation, and discovering the fire
non succeeded in extinguishing it; not,
owever, until it had done considerable
lamage to the goods as wvell as the build
ng. It was truly a fortunate circumstance
bat the front doors were not broken open,
5s were desired by several individuals, for
he floor, ceiling and shelving had become
o heated that the least cttrrent of air would
ave roused a blaze whbich, very probably,
t-otuld have piroved fatal to the whole block
f buildings with which the store is con-a
tected. Tphe damage done to the goods I
if Mr. Mordecai is probably seven thou.
and dollars. The room immediately above
he store was occupied by Messrs. Sher
nan & Stratton as a furtniture ware-room,
Lnd the furniture wvas all, more or less,
lamaged by the fire, beat and smoke. We
earn that lMr. Mordecai is inasured to the
imount of $10,000 in the Charleston In
trance and Trust Company; and Mr.
hcrman, wvho owns the building, and,
,herman & Stratton are insttred in the
kugusta Insuratnce and Banking Compa
ty's office. Fourteen or fifteen hutndred
lollars, however, will probably cover the
lamages, sustained by the latter indivi
loals. The origin of the fire is enveloped
n mystery. Much praise is due to pur
l're Company : the whole of Brick Range
agether with the opposite square, proba
ly owe their preservation to the great
rudence, foresight, activity and vigilance
n anifested by its member.- Chronicle.
Look Out For Afligators.-Last Sun
lay we was informed by a man of this
lace, who was then passing by our office t
vith a small shot gun in his hands, that he
yes going to shoot a large Alligator which
te had je~st seen in 'the r'iver. H-e likewise
tated, that he had seen as many as three
n the river near to llambturg, since the
reshet. Now we will only give the news
s we received it. We howvever think,
hat if fresbets brittg alligators from down

hat our friend endeavored to place this
