That prolatelntiotn was a: follows : ',By lbe President-A paeolamatioa: I Whereas, the oausatitutlQo of 4 erlqg provides that the President ma on extraordinkry occasions, convene b6th" houwes of Congress, and' Wh6*ThCs, an extraordinary occasion exists for con. venilng. congress apd divers weightyt matters claim their conheration. I have, therefore, -thought it necessaty to convene, and so do, by these pres ants, convene the Congresrsof the Uni ted States of America, at the city of Philadelphia, on Monday, the 15tb day of May next, hereby requiring the sen. ators and representatives in congress of the United States of America and evldry I one of them, that, in laying aside all other matters and cares, they then and I there meet and easemble ip congress in order to consult and determine on such 1 meastres for the safety and welfare of the United States. In testimony whereof, etc. Jonl ADAMr." The directory had then possession of the French government. Three mili tary directors had been appointed. The first advance had been made toward a military despotlsm QGarnet and other leaders of the royalist councils had been ttansported, and among other facts of I the directory had been the expulsion of ' ChaIt les Cnteswcrth. P.iLDk y,.minister r of the United S!ates, from J?rance. r Presildent Adams, in a very'spirited c message and in an equally spirited correspondence, resented this act, and , it was deemed expedient to convenet congress in extraeesslgh ihi 6rder that the United States might be prepared to malutain its rights. There was a tang diplomatic correspondence upon tlhe subject, after which the war-cloud disappeared. Congress was convened for the second. time in October, 1802, upon the practla tOation of President Jefferson. The special purpose of this session was to attthorize the purchase by the United States, of Iutlianla, which bhad been conceied by. Spain to France. The purchase was consummated by thel United 8Sates on April' 30, 1803, for $16.000,000, immediately alter whilch provision was made for the territories of Missisl,ppi and Orleans. President Jefferson found it necessary I to convene congress in extra sessiton five years later. Ills proelamallon was issued July :)0, 1807, and congress met October 26t, of that year. Tne Immedi ate caue was the aggressions of Great Britain and the capture of the United States war ves el Chesapeake in WTamp ton RIoads on June 22. This seizure was one of the results of the dispute with 1aglantl, arising from the-capture and condemnation of several American vetsels about to enter blockeded ports, and from the aR'umption by England of the right of search. The British goverotnent of the admiralty courts revivet.( the maxim of 1766, which as sunedl that neutrals in time of war could carry out on trade which they had not been accustomed to carry out in time of pleace. This neutral trade was therefore considered as destructive to i:uglsnti's property and as a war in disguise. England adopted at that time a t-mtporizing policy, and the war, which then seemed inevitable, was postponed. In the debates at this ses sion of congress, the tail of the British lion was twisted as it had seldom hern before. Tihe controversy with (treat liritain wa' niot, however, to be ended without a war, and P'resident badtsov, in July, 1811, found it necessary to convene col gress in advance of the usual time. Tie twelfth congress was convened in special session on November 4, 1811, letnry (:lay, of Kentucky, being speaker. W\ar withl Great Britain was then deemed inevilable, and President Madison sought to have supplies voted. in order that the vacancies in the army could be lilled and authority secured to recruit additional men. lie was an. lthoriz-d to ctll for 25,000 volunteers; and an embargo for sixty days was de clared on April 4, 1812, and war wasi tdeclared against Englaend on Joune 18. 1 The continuance of the war made it omcessary for President Madison to con- I vene cnglres in special session agate on Spiember 19, 1814, in order that a place might be provided for the govern- I mett oftices, the British in their iove. sitln havint hurted the capitol and the lfedratl ofiles. During Ihia year the wa:tr eotted. I .slty ytars elapsed before amother eatled sesiolt was deemed necessary. 'The audminitrations of Monroe, John Quir:ey Adtatms and Jackson passed w'lithut any deviation fronm thue regu lar (,course lt congress. But when the panic of 1837 came, Presidenat Van Burun convened coogress in extra sea. ' tin uwtite 4th of Slptember, Id. order t1o consider what measuree cuul 4 be devrsii ftor'reef.'

C here were no more extr stsaions I until the war of the rebellion. Then e President Ioncolo, y. a proclamation a of April 16, 1861, convened both houses t of congress for the 4th day of July of r that year. Galusha A. Grow, of r 'Peeunsylvania, was elected speaker; It the supply bills were voIted, and, al- ( though there were very long sessions D of congress until the war closed, and b congress assembled at different periods, Si no further extra session was called. It y was the policy of the administration a not to have adjournments, hut to take a recesses, in order to be readly for any it contingency which might occur. h The tenth called session, like the a' eighth, was due to the failure of the t appropriation bill for maintenance of r the army. The demooratie1-mjority of lhe houser of the forty.illth cqngtess having failed to pass the regular army I appropriation bill on account of the I very animatted controversey relative to t the use of troops at tte 1)olls, President.

Harrison has been remarkably circumtnpect and e~ga- a clous in his speeches, anti untill now all a his publicutterances have hen sensible t enough. On the evening of New Year's IDay, however, he made at speech at ai meeting of the Grand Army post to which be belongs, in which, according b to the report in the Now York Tribnelto, he used this language : 64I wish to say to you before p,:,ting with you, and I believe I can say it without offense to any UGrand Armly man, that the parting request I would make. of you would be that P;ich of you, if the bugleshoulld soundl agtinH , should stand shoulder to shoulder, as we didl through tihe war to pr-e,.rvt a fr at ad honest ballot." What loss any pot-sible Ibgle iili to iito with a free and honest ballot ? We have been tnecuttnetl to thisl sort of military talk from fiery spirits like John Sheriran, of Ohio, and George F. Ilhor, of Massachu.et.., but we hardly expected it from the coul andI1 conservative l'resralent- eliet. It is somewhat amrusing, too, to Ihcar lepublican leaders saying si olluch nowadays about a "free ,isI1t hiuntesl ballot." If (ien. Harrtis,n waits t lo sorrl thing to promote a freu sand honest bal. lot, why does he not invcestigate inl isclose tile dlings a, well ktlown gentleman from Indiana named I)ud lay, who was recently exerting ilmself in behalf of the Ill.pubiican ticket in the Stlate by nlean of 'flonters in blocksl o five?" lfe can tlo lhi wi i 'tiout any bugle ull or the utstictm. ,r noy jOratd Army ,post.
