We pub itsh the proceedings of this body in to Jay's paper. The attend jnce was not as large as usual, owing to the very bad weather of yesterday. The proceed ings were conducted with harmony. ; The designation of Messrs. Vinton and Harris as Senatorial delegates and the 'appointment of Col. Trump as dis trict delegate and Dr. Toland as alter nate, could not have been bettered. Either of these gentlemen will properly represent the . publio sentiment of the State and will make excellent arid influ ential delegates. ' tSTThe New York Tribune of the 9th inst. ssys, Vwe gave by special telegraph despatch the proceedings of the Whig caucus ot Albany.

News narrates the following extraordinary incidents in the life of a man named Watson, who some fifteen year ago, left Alexandria, settled in King George county as a meichant, married a highly respectable young lady, by whom he had four childien, and subse quently became a widower and a bank rupt: "With his litlle children, twn of whom were daughters, he lived on a small farm which he rented, three miles below the line seperaiiug Stafford and King George Dining the coldest of the weather in ihe latter part of December last, his child ren were seized with the whooping cough, and everyna of them prostrated Whilst thus confined, their father was taken with erysipelas, and in the same, room lay thefaiher snd childien, peilect ly helpless. Whilst th us confined, some fiends broke in his meat and fowl houses and stole every fowl and piece of meat on the farm, induing so they passed through the garden, levelling the fence and thereby permitting the cattle and hogs to destroy el III he vegetables intend ed for winter use. The only thing left for the support of that family was a small quantity of com meal and some unroaat ed cottee. In that condition they lay a largo portion of the time without water, without fire and without food. "A poor widow in the neighborhood sent them a small piece ot meat, and the oldest hoy. not quite so ill as the test, d'd, as long as hissirengih would enable him, crawl to the fire place, stir up the dying embers, half cook some bread, fiy a piece of meat, and with coffee without milk or sugar, attempt to relieve the hun ier of his dying father and sisters. On one occasion, weak and feeble as he was ho "staggered" through the snow to nei Idiot's house to procure fire At one time the father and children won I he crying for water, ami not a drop in the house and no one lo hi inn it. 1 hits they lay tor several days, until liod, in his rneicy, took two of the children. Two days did they lay coipses ry the side of their sii k parent, and no one lo prepare them for sepulture and convey them 'to the tomb A man arcidenily passing by, called in, found the family as we have described them, the lather hluid and inseie-ihle, with his two dead child ren one fiozen to death lying by his side, and letl th m in that condition, Two days after this iho father died. The night preceding his death he had hemotifiHge ii ml bled most profusely. By his side were his son and his daugh ter barely able to raise their heads, hut nerved lo the occasion they sat by him the whole night ahum, using evciy means Iheii infant minds could suggest in staunching the blood. A poor widow, ihe dsy of Watson's death, heard of it, came to his house, had him and his two dead children buried, took ihe sick ones home with her, nursed ihem, and has since restored them lo health."
