MADRID, June 7.-The Constitution
waa promulgated on Saturday with great
pomp. The Executive Council and
Cortes appeared on the platform, where
the 3eeretary of the Cortes read the
Constitution. Thore was an immense
concourse, which applauded loudly. Re?
turning to the Chamber, each member of
the Corten was sworn to protect and sup
Eort the Constitution. Some hisses were
card. After tho promulgation of tho
Constitution, a tumult ensued, which
only subsided when tho military np
5eared. The Governor of tho city of
lad rid rushed among tho foremost of
the rioters, shouting "Viva Sovcrariia
Nacional." This changed tho feeling of
the fluctuating mob, which joined in
cheering the Governor, and the tumult
subsided. Only two were killed and
several wounded. Subsequently tho de?
puties returned to the platform and re?
viewed 30,000 troops. The enthusiasm
on all sides was very great. It was no?
ticed, however, that none of the Repub?
lican deputies participated in tho pro?
ceedings. The oivio procession was fol?
lowed by a grand banquet and fire-works.
Over .100,000 persons from tho country
visited Madrid during the dny. A bill
will be introduced in the Cortes to-mor?
row, creating Seriano Regent of Spain,
but without the power or sanction of the
laws, or to dissolve the Chamber. Di?
rect taxes in tho Spanish colonies are
reduced one-half, and a small export duty
on sugar, rum and tobacco has been im?

WASHINGTON, June7.-Treasurer Spin- j

The radicals carried the election. The
opponents made littlo contest, and the
polls were abandoned to the negroes. A
riot occurred i ti tho Second Ward to-day. j
The negroes chased a conservative black I
man to his house and assailed tho house, j
The inmates escaped to tho rear. The
conservative found refuge in tho upper |
storN.when tho police surrounded the
house and brought tho conservative
down, enclosed him in a hollow square,
and took him to tho polls, when he
voted. Tho negroes now being furious,
threw a volley of stones, and fired pistols
occasionally. Tho chief of police was
hurt in tlic nrm. Tre nnlereijjjis force
to fire over thc mob. This increased the
mob's violence, when the polico were
compelled to fire I. volley directly into
them, killing ono and wounding three,
when tho mob fled. Earlier in tho dny
a policeman Avas cut with a razor and se?
riously beaton, in tho Sixth Ward. Tho
rioting has been confined entirely to ne?
groes. Tho negroes show no disposition
to molest the whites so fur, but they are
drinking freely, which causes much ap?
prehension for safety during tho night.
The marines have been ordered to hold
themselves in readiness, to quiet tho
fears of tho people. It is just to say that
no respectable colored citizens of Wash?
ington participated in or encouraged the
Delano -decides that tho States have no
right to throw convict produced articles
on the market until tho Federal tax has
been paid. The President has submit?

TU* StA te Conitnbnlary and the PkUlIc
Among all the costly contrivance); de?
signed by the Solona in Columbia tojbro
mote the interest of tho few at Ifta ex?
pense of tho mnny-few combine il so
eminent a degree the elements of mst,
uselessness and inefficiency-tho larjeat
expenditure of means, and the sui ulest
economy of results-tho greatest ineffi?
ciency for good, and the hugest potelcy
for evil-us that model bureau, the Sate
constabulary, with its headquarters, at
1st. Consider for n moment the Ulm
of cost. We have a chief constable, wah
a salary of ?1,500 a year, and deputy
constables iu every County, drawing
three dollars for every day of nctunl no?
vice. And that these tours of pretenda
duty will be protracted beyond tho exi?
gencies of the occasion, and that llb
constables will make the degreo of thc t
"impecuuiosity," and not tho demain*
of tho public service, tho mensuro cf
their labors, it requires neither tho pri*
science of tho seer or the experienco ot
tho sago to determino. Wo have a prac
tical illustration of this in the experience
of our District, for the past two weeks,
with a portion of this same State consta?
bulary. For that period some half-dozen
of them have beeu harrnssing whites and
tantalizing blacks - "vexing the drowsy
car of ,night" with tho sound of patter?
ing hoofs, nnd flaunting their baud-cuffs
and other insignia in "the garish light
of day"-arresting this man nnd letting
that mun escapo-and at last accomplish?
ing a two weeks' work of "sowing the
wind and reaping"-a rich harvest of
fees. $1,500 per annum-three dollars
per day! with the incidentals! Truly we
pay dearly for t'-e expensive luxury of
2d. But how useless the whole ma?
chinery! Dow entirely uncalled for by
tho exigencies of the public service!
Tbero was nothing in the condition of
the country to demand its establishment,
and them has been no occasion for its I
exercise since. When has there been,
or where has there been any armed re-1
sistanco of authority-any violation of
law which the ordinary ministers of jus?
tice were not fully competent to repress? ?
The proof of this is seen in the history
of our own District for tho past six
months. Not a homicide-scarcely n
breach of tho pence to disturb thu even ?
current of our law-respecting obedience j
- until tho advent of this troop of legal
?zed incendiaries, who toss hither and
thither fire brands of discord, and seek ?
to irritate old wounds and intensify old j
3d. How iueflicieut for good, how po- , ,
tent for evil, is this model State police! '
To bo efficient they should be "vigilant,
active and brave." But does the State
police possess a siuglo one of these re
piisites? If Sii, let their past deeds
?peak "trnmpet-tougned." Wliat- re
ilotlbted outlaw or convicted felon have
they arrested? Was Tolbert "treed in a
iwamp?" They will scarcely have the j |
hardihood now lo revamp that old story.
Does bravery consist in shooting around
die houses of lone widows? does activity
in tho performances of duty comport
with the arrest of beardless boys, who
ire innocent of crime? does legal vigi
ance lind exercise in hand-cul?ing a
iiirmless, inoffensive old mun, and drag?
ging him at tho rope's end, under a na?
rro escort, to the county seat, miles
iway from homo? If so, then tho State
constabulary are "vigilant, activo und
nave"-tho pillars of tho State-as
\rgns, with bis hundred eyes, and
Uriureus, with his hundred bauds.
Inefficient for good, but potent for
?vii-such is tho State constabulary
md such do their acts prove them to bo.
They ure the mero tools of a party,
locking neither the geuoral weal nor
lubscving tho ends of public justice,
mt sacrificing all to tho advancement
if narrow partisan purposes. For these
im poses tliey have been sent among us
now, ou the heels of the coming election.

O HAMME-HOW TO LEGISLATE.-Tile im
maoolate eight in the City Council, who
have been so delightfully flauked in their
indecent haste to legislate themselves
into office, and to curb the dignity and
powers of the Mayor, have planned and
stratugemed a long while to recover
their lost position. Every possible in?
fluence bas been brought to bear npon
Mr. Pillsbury; the League has been
called into requisition, that powerful eu?
gine that seldom fails in accomplishing
the ends of the skillful politicians who
wield it, and the Governor hirseelf, after
thrco days fruitless effort, has been forced
to give up the trial to make peuce. Mr.
Pillsbury and his supporters refuso to
recede'au inch from their position, and
Democrats, good, sound, reponeible men
still continue to hold the city offices.
This state of things ia of course extreme?
ly distasteful to the extremists, and ac?
cordingly, not being able to fiud any
other way ont of their perplexing posi?
tion, they offered a proposition to com?
promise by resigning, and ordering an?
other election. Even this failed to
effect tho object for which it was intend?
ed, and one would suppoao that tho fc" -
rious eight would surrender. Not so,
however; these Republicans have a win?
ning way of doing business, and on
Saturday a now dodge ivudo its appear?
ance, in tho shape of a petition to the
Legislature for an extra session, for the
purpose of repealing tho validating Act
ind authorizing a new election.
Of courso, it is just as competent for
flio Legislature to repeal one of its own
.Vets, ns it is for it to deolare an illegal
ilectiou valid; and it is one of the least
lowers that tho reconstructed Legisla?
ture of South Carolina possesses. Bat
we do not believe, with all tho boldness
of successful politicians, that a represen
t uti ve body pretending to work for the
common good, will involve tho State iu
an extra expense of fifty or a hundred
thousand dollars, in order to legislate
eight disappointed Aldermen into power,
in tho City Council of Charleston, lt
will not bo done. The scheme, a very I
bold one, will fall to the ground, and its]
primo movers will have to devise some i
other means for effecting thc avowed ob-1

injudicious allotment of the tent?, great
excitement prevailed. Five priuted tick

When Mr. Davis was Seoretary of War,
ho issued circulars to all tho army of?
ficers, asking of them specifications for a
new uniform. Pheonix, who was an ex?
cellent draftsman, set to work and pro?
duced a design. Ho tundo no great
chango in the uniform, but he proposed
revolutionizing tho entire system of mo?
dern tactics by an iron hook. This hook
was to be attached to tho seat of every
soldier's pants. It applied to overy arm
of tho service, cavalry, infantry and ar?
tillery. Ho illustrated its uso by a series
of weii-execntcd designs. Ho quoted
high medical authority, proving its ad?
vantages in a sunitury point of view. Tho
heavy kunpsack, Le argued, induced a
stooping position and a very great con
traction of tho chest. But hung on a
hook by a strap connecting with the
shoulder, it would brace the body back
aud expand the chest. The cavalry thus
were to bo reudored more secure iu their
seats, hooked to a ring in tho saddle. All
the commissioned officers were to carry
a light twenty foot pole, with a ring at- j
tached to the end. This was to bo used
during an engagement in drawing tho
stragglers back iuto tho ranks. He il?
lustrated a terrifio battle, the generals
and colonels being thus occupied, run?
ning about hauling stragglers back to
tho ranks. lu many other unheard of
ways did he expatiate on the value of his
hook. Mr. Davis was enraged. His
dignity wat> wounded and the service in?
sulted. Ho instantly made ont an order
directing Pheonix to be court martialcd
for contempt. Marcy was made aware
of Phoenix's transaction, as well os the
cloud hanging over him.
He looked over tho plates. He saw a
regiment, their backs toward him, drawn
up in liue, knapsacks, blankets, hams
and all manner of camp equipage, pend?
ing from each soldier. Marcy broke
down. Said bo to Davis: "It's no uso
to court martial this mau. Tho matter
will bo made public; the laugh will settle
entirely on UH, and besides, a man who
bas the inventive ingenuity hero dis
p'ayod, as well as this faculty of design,
illy-directed though it be, is too valuable
to the service to bo trifled with." John
Phoenix was not brought to grief, and
Davis' anger was at length sufficiently
mollified for him to enjoy tho joko. It
does not appear, however, that they !
adopted Phoenix's pian. j
