“Proclamacion Extraordinaria!” or in plain English, “Proclamation Extraordinary!”  To the Spanish Americans, by P.P. Pratt, has been before us some time; and from a hasty perusal, we judged to be a word in season to those for whom it was intended.  Also elder Pratt’s “Especial Chapter for the Especial Edification of certain inquisitive News Editors,” &c; all good in its place; San Francisco, July 13, 1852; but behind the times for Deseretians.  The long delay of the receipt of these, as of many other articles, is sufficient apology for our apparent neglect in notice; and this, we suppose, must continue till we have earlier mails, which we hope will be soon.
