(r The result of the vote so far received
indicates the adoption of the New Constitu
tion. ' There is one thing, however, that is
demonstrated by the result, that the People
never experienced any serious inconveni
ence from the' working of the old Constitu
tion. The movement was decidedly , pre
mature, and we believe the new pno has
been adopted by tbe votes of mon who sup
ported it mostly upon the ground of ihe su
ponor facilities which it embodies for its
own amendment. We feel satisfied, iiowev
er at the result, it: received our support
upon other and higher grounds, and we feel
saftguind in Eaying that we believe ten years
will demonstrate tho wisdom of the majority
.. oelow wo give the vote so far as obtained
before going to press. ; . .
From the vote, which is not fully report

has been adopted. . .

ity and feasibility of a steamship communi

marks that such a line would complete the
chain of steam communication around the
world, except a small break in crossing the
isthmus of Suez, connecting Asia with Afri
ca. The, paper then says:
" This link completed the traveller leav
irg New York, can proceed to Chagros by
steam, Irom thence by railroad to Panama
thence to San Francisco, to Macao via the
the Sandwich Islands. Guam and Manila
thence to Suez, via Singapore, Penang.Cev
Ion, and Adin. Thence to Cairo and Alex
andria to Southampton, via Malta and Gib
ralter, and from thence by steam again lo
INew York. Ihe only break in seam trav
elling will be in crossing tho Isthmus of Su
ez. Thus he would be able to circumnav
igate the world, visiting many points of in
terest, making the trip in one. hundred and
forty days !t The commercial advantages
which must flow 10 the United States from

Wonderful .Deposit or Coal. Mr. J
Dill has communicated to the Family Visit
er,a brief account of a wonderful depositor
mineral at Siruitsvillo, Perry county, Ohio,
which is said 10 exceed anything of the kind
discovered In tho world. Ho writes : ,
"Reports of an immense structure of coal
in ihe vicinity of 'this place,, have long been
circulated in-central Ohio. I first beard of
it in the Winter of 1848-9; it was then re
ported to bo about ninety feet thick. Fur
ther examinations ascertained the thickness
of the uncovered pan, in the face of a deep
ravine at 1 iz leet. a low days since a gen
tleman of high standing, informed me-that
an acquaintance of bis with some others,
had stripped the upper surface of the bed
and bored through the coal stratum lo ascer
tain its thickness and found it 10 be 136 feet.
About ten miles north of that mino, I found
a vein of carbonate of iron implanted simi
lar to a slaty stratum, with an easy cleavnire
which is full of well preserved leaves of th;,
coal lormation. Some of them on 'oreaking
open, exhibit tho creen of the W.. Tim

This was the path of of the multitudinous
hosts of Amru, the successor of Mahomet,
when ho led his fanatical and victorious
trotisunds from Syria to Cairo and Alexan
dria, poured : his dense dark masses upon
southern Europe, and aimed to subject the
Cross to the Crescent. These vast and ai id
deserti, over which the bald and rocky Sinai
frowns in stern grandeur,- long afterwards
trembled beneath tlie tread of arinud mil
lions, whirling like some horrible tempest
through the scone of Israel's triul and pun
ishment. He who, from ihe position of an
humble subulturn. reached tho throne of the
Bsurbons by a series of usurpations the
most wonderful. on record, would rival the
fame and miraoles of the Hebrew iuwgiver.

the engulfed chariots and horsemen of

But what was this desecration in compar

iron horse, within view of the spot where
the burning bush exhibited its mysterious
sign to tho trembling Moses, where the
tables of the law were broken into fragments
and over which the pillar of cloud by day
and fire by night, hovered, and guided the
people ol Israel to the lovely region ol the
Philistines and Canaanins.
The tour of the Holy Land, which, in
