From the advertisement of the Super
intendent of the Portage Kail Road, which
will be found in our columns this week,
it will be perceived that the Canal Board
contemplate putting twelve new truck up
on the road so as to accommodate the large
and increasing trade upon it. Proposals
for their construction will' be received at
the office of the Superintendent at the
Summit until the 19th hist. This is all
light and proper and we are pleased Jo see
the efforts made by the officers of the
Commonwealth to accommodate the sec
tion boatmen, and to avoid delays heieto
fore occasioned for want ol a sufficient
number of trucks in transporting their
boats over the mountain.

JS'ew York United States Senator.
The recent election in New York gives
the "Whigs the majority in the Legislature
and defeats Mr. Dickenson's re-election to
the United States Senate. The Whigs,
it is said, intend to elect the Hon. Hamil
ton Fish, the present Governor; or, if
Washington Hunt is defeated, as seems
probable, in the election for Governor his
name will be proposed as a candidate.

General Cuvaignac and the French
lit public. - Considerable discussion is
going on in the French papers as to the
probable course that may be taken by the
military' members of i lie Left in the As
sembly in the case of an attempt at a re
vision of the Constitution, or the prolon
gation of the powers of the President. By
some it is contended that Gen. Cavaignac
would place himself at the head of a party
to resist vi ct annis, it necessary, any
attempt at revision, unless in the manner,
and at the period prescribed by the Con
stitution. There are few who will deny
the title of General Cavaignac to public
gratitude for the eminent services he ren
dered in days of danger; and his ability rs
a parliamentary debater is equally admit
ted. But it must be a calumny on the
General to presume that, in case the na
tion, by the voice of its representatives
elected freely by universal suffrage, and
in whose hands, to use the language of
the day, the popular sovereignty has been
deposited for a period, demand the revision
of a Constitution so full of defects, he will
enrol himself amongst mere revolutionists,
and become the general-in-chief of insur
gents in arms against the National Assem
bly, of which he himself is a member.
Gen. Cavaignac will, there is no doubt,
express his opinion on the question of
revision, as on all other questions brought
forward in the Assembly; but it is very
doubtful that, with the memory of his
own treatment of the insuigents of June
still fresh, Gen. Cavaignac would himself
become what armed resistance to the
decision of the Assembly would unques
tionably make him. It is stated, however,
in well-informed quarters, that there is no
intention of mooting the question of the
revision of the Constitution until May,
1851, the period prescribed by the Con
stitution itself. It such be the case, noth
