Constitution-making has been in teady progress in the United (States for a century, curmlnafing In three threat periods of activity at the close of the Revolutionary war, in the ten years lying just before and after 1850 and in the year just -succeeding the var. Eachtif these periods was marked ty the adoption of a large number of important constitutions, bearing a family resemblance, and showing tignsofa successive development in the conception of the organic law of a late. In the years now passing pro jects for constitutional conventions are rettjr generally voted down, the last proposal negatived being In Kansas In 1881, and constitutional changes are chiefly minor amendments, rarely af fecting the vital structures of State Government. Mr. Mcpherson's "hand book of American Politics," shortly to fce issued, gives, as usual, a compre hensive summary of State amend ments pending and adopted during the feast two years us well as Federal amendments before Congress. Xxperience has shown that nothing abort of a civil war or a great national exigency is likely to work an amend ment in the fundamental law of the Uuiou, but this circumstance bus little effect upon Congressmen who yearly add to the long series of forgot ten amendments which, begun with the lirst session of the first Congress, nave continued ever since, and re main chiefly valuable for the light they throw on current political the ories. It Is barely possible that the Bouse will next wluter pass the Senate law regulating theeounting of theelec toral vote. More is not to be expected, and the amendments before Congress, fcy Mr. Hammond, of Georgia, pro posing three vice-presidents so as to provide a secure succession, by Mr. Townsend, of Ohio, for a direct elec tion by the people, by Mr. Cravens, of Arkansas, and Mr. Beltzhoover, of Pennsylvania, for an exact arithmeti cal appointment of the electoral vote by population, and by Mr. McCoid, of Iowa, continuing the tenure of presi dential electors four years so as to have a body ready to till vacancies, are as little likely of adoption as Mr- Wal lace's proposal in the last Congress to hoose electors by districts, or Senator ' Morgan's formal attempt to clothe Congress with .legislative power on this subject. Mr. Buyne, of this State, like Mr. White in the last Congress, proposed to have Senators elected by the people; the former with a proviso for additional Senators for the larger States, and Mr. Belzhoover seeks to Incorporate in the House the worst feature of Senatorial tenure, a six-year term in biennial sections,- while Mr. Browne, of Indiana, asks for a House limited to 350 members. The Civil Reform agitation has led to amend ments by Mr. Pendleton for the elec tion of all Federal civil officers by the people in each district, and by Senator George, of Mississippi, of these and the Federal judiciary; while Mr. Ged des, of Ohio, proposes a board to make all nominations to the Senate, and Mr. Buckner, of Missouri, seeks to limit the President's power of removal to changes for cause, except in the case f heads of departments and bureaus. Prohibitory amendments have been presented by Senators Rolllngs.Plumb, and Representative Joyce, a measure Whose adoption will, unless all signs fail, be the subject of a national agita tion in a few years over .unfortunately, the only other sane amendment in this entire batch. Mr. Springer, of Illinois, relegating claims to the court, has as little chance of adoption as the rest, having been defeated, yeas 81, nays 48. State amendments hi the past two years have dealt chiefly with the judi ciary and election laws. Missouri sub mits to the people next full an elabor ate and somewhat novel judicial system, which, while It continues the carious independent judiciary enjoyed by St. Louis, provides for the rest of the rate a supreme court of six, in - stead of three as now, to be divided into civil and criminal branches, the former having superior Jurisdiction, and tne united court sitting iu banc whenever the Chief Justice certifies that the criminal side has ruled in law or practice contrary to the past cases or the decisions of the civil side. An attempt is made to di vide peremp tory writs of relief between the two courts, but experience will show the difficulty of these artificial distinc tions in the application of law. The new supreme court in banc is- to hear appear from St. Louis Courts of Ap peals, as from the criminal half of its own bench, so thatMissourl willcease, If this amendment is adopted, to' pre eat the-anomalous spectacle' of a State' with- two- Supreme Courts. Arkaas, in-1880; and TexAa.Ic 188 f, both vottdtlown new judicial systems. , West Virginia provided, in 1880, for a Jury of fllx, liy consent, in civil cases, and Iowa last year reduced grand juries to from five to fifteen members, and empowered the Legislature to provide for indictment "In any x:riml nal offense, without the Intervention o( a grand Jury." Connecticut, 1880, has vested he selection -of higher judges In the Governor and 'Legisla ture ; Iowa gives the Legislature the dangerous power of changing districts at will Instead of once in four years, and Maryland has changed thecurious (uticiuii wii Km gave any judge elec ted to fill n vacancy In the fifteen year judical term, fifteen years to serve. Legislative powers have been sharply restricted in Minnesota, 1881, by the Usual llmrtations on special legislation, the sixty days' limit on the session adopted In 1800 has been abandoned, and a stay tat ou sessions by paying members $?5 a day ; the pay has been $3 for only ninety days In future. Wisconsin in the same year decided on biennial sessions, and raised . legia- aiive pay to a session, a sum which, iu frugal Western States, is still the average legislative pay, as It was iu the East up to the close of war, and a few years after. Maine, 1880, extended the term of its House of Representatives to two years ; but the Legislature sits annually. The solitary change made or proposed in the olllce or Uoveruor is his election by a plurality vote In future lu the same State. Election law has received more than customary attention in the last two years. Indiana has moved out of the October States, and Iowa will do the same thing next fall, while the useful provision requiring thirty days' re.ii dedce In the precinct was adopted by the former in lai. Virginia passes next fall on the abolition of the poll- tax as a qualification for suffrage, Massachusetts last fall enfranchised pauper soldiers, Nevada has struck out the word "white" from its Const! tution, and, curiously enough, at an election, where Chinese immigration was overwhelmingly condemned, passed a provision which will permit naturalized Chinamen to vote. An amendment permitting female suff rage is pending between two Indiana Legislatures, as it is iu Iowa. Constitutional provisions relating to taxation are usually brief and chiefly negative. Their amendment is rare, Minnesota has found it necessary to exteud the right of municipal taxa tion perhaps one should say confisca tionwithout regard to value and based ou benefits conferred to the constructions of water works in towns of 6,000 inhabitants, a dangerous liberty. Kansas has refused to strike out the exemption of $200 of personal property now existing. Nevada has prohibited taxation for any but now sectarian purposes, and New York passes next fall upon an amendment which lays on taxation the burden of maintaining the canals and paying the canal debt. The economic effects of this measure are likely to make it the most important of all the amend ments summed up here. Prohibition, an issue whose rising importance is little appreciated in the East, has been placed in the organic law of two Stales, Kansas and Iowa, and it is pending iu Indiana. It is a mere question of time when this amendment, for defeat or success as the case may be, appears in half the States in the Union. THE GREAT JOB YETOED. PRESIDENT ARTHUR HKfUSES TO BION THE RIVER AND HARBOR BILL. Washington, Aug. I. Here is the text of the President's message veto ing the River and Harbor bill : To the House of Representatives : Having watched with much interest the progress of House bill, No. 6,242, entitled. "An act making appropria tions for the construction, repair, and preservation of certain works on rivers and harbors, and for other purposes," and having since it was received care fully examined it, after mature con sideration I am constrained to return it herewith to the House of Represen tatives In which it originated without my signature and with my objections to its passage. Many of the appropriations in the bill are clearly for the general welfare and most beneficent iu their character Two of the objects for which provision is made were by me considered so Important that I felt it my duty to direct them to the attention of Con gress. In my annual message in De cember last I urged the vital impor tance of legislation for the reclamation of the marshes and for the establish ment of the harbor lines along the Potomac front. In April last, by special message,! recommended an ap propriation for the improvement of the Mississippi River. It is not neces sary that I say that when my signature would make the bill appropriating for these and other Valuable national ob jects a law, it is with great reluctance and only under a sense of duty that I withhold it. My principal objection to the bill Is that it con tains appropria tions for purjKwes not for the common defence or geueral welfare, and which do not promote commerce among the States. These provisions, on the contrary, are entirely for the benefit of the particular localities in which it Is proposed to make the improvements I regard such appropriation of the public money as beyond the power given the Constitution to Congress and the President. I feel the more bound to withhold my signature from the bill because of the peculiar evils which manifestly result from this iu fraction of the Constitution. Appro priations of this nature, to be devoted purely to local objects, tend to an in crease Id b umber and-in'aruount- A -he cltlaoBs of one State find that moneyto raise which they in com mon with the whole country are taxed is to "be expended for local improve ments in another State, they demand slrullar benefits for thOfLselves, and It is not unnatural that they should seek to indemnify themselves for such use of the public funds by securing appro priations for similar Improvements in their own neighborhood. Thus, as the bill becomes more objectionable, It secures more support. This result is invariable, and necessarily follows a neglect to observe the constitutional limitations Imposed upon th law making power. The appropriations for river and harbor Improvement have, iuder the influences to which I have alluded, Increased year by year outof proportion to the progress of the country, great as that has been. In 1870 the aggregate appropriation was '$8,975,900 in 1875, $8,648,617,60; in 1880, $8,976,500; andln 1881, $11,451,300; while by the present act there is appropriated $18,713,875, While feeling every -disposition to leave to the Legislature the responsl bility of determining what amount should be appropriated for the pur poses or the bill, so long as the appro priations are confined to objects indi cated, by the grant of power I cannot escape the conclusion that, -as a partof the law-making power of the Govern ment, the duty devolves upon me to withhold my signature from the bill containing 'appropriations which iu my opinion, greatly exceed In arhouht the needs of the country for the present fiscal year. It being the usage to provide money for these purposes by annual appropriation bills, the President is in effect directed to ex pend so large amount of mrriiey with in so brief a period that the expend! ture cannot be made economically aud advantageously. The extravagant expenditure of public money Is an evil uot to be measured by the value of that money to the people who are taxed for it. They sustain a great Injury In the de moralizing effect produced upon those who are intrusted With official duty through all the ramifications of govern meut. These objects could be removed, and every constitutional purpose readily obtained, should Congress enact that one-half of the aggregate amount pro vided for in the bill be appropriated for expenditure during the fiscal year, and that the sum so appropriated be expended only for such objects named iu the bill as the Secretary of War un der the direction of the President, shall determine, provided that in no case shall the expenditure for any one purpose exceed the sum now designa ted by the bill for that purpose. I feel authorized to make this sug gestion because of the duty imposed upon the President by theConstitution to recommend to the consideration of Congress such measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient, and be cause it is my earnest desire that the public works which are in progress shall suffer no injury. Congress will also convene again in four months, when this whole subject will be open for their consideration. Chester A Arthur. Executive Mansion, Aug. 1, 1882. There has been a long discussion in the Cabinet about it, and the message was uot sent to the House uutil quite late. Members had been expecting a message of some sort all day, aud us the time passed and none came those who were despondent plucked up hope. The humorous Horr, who has bieu lu the dumps for three days over the prospect, began to hope that the President would sign the bill. He thought that if there were to be a veto it would have been sent to the House early to-day. The big Chairman of the Commerce Committee of the House, Page of Califoruia,oscillated nervously between the Senate aud House. In the Senate he held lougaud whispered consultations with the anxious Mc Millan, Chairman of the Senate Com merce Committee. The President hud kept them all absolutely in the dark respecting his intention. Oue member who had talked with Gen. Arthur was certaiu from a Presidential look that the bill would be signed, while another would come away cast dowu with apprehen sion. Members discussed the proba bilities iu groups lu the cloak rooms, aud all admitted that the President's designs were a mystery. At last about 4 o'clock, Page Came into the Hous-e aud sat down gloomily aftd petulantly in his seat. His manner was sufficient. Members did not have need of asking him what the matter was. Nor did he feel disposed to talk. The cause of this gloom was a telephouic message from the other eud of the avenue, to the effect that the Cabinet had quitted the White House, aud that a veto message was ou its way to the Capitol. What was done at the session of the Cabinet to-day is.of course.not known in detail, but it is understood that the President . informed his advisers as soon as they met that be bad decided to veto the bill unless he should, during the session of the Cabinet, learn some reason that would be suf ficient to cause him to alter his mind He suid that b had beeu listening to theexpluualionsof members for seveial days, and' while be recognized the force of many of their objections to a veto, still he hud heard nothing which led him to believe that it was not his duty to veto the bill. The consulta tion 1b the Cu bluet wus largely re specting the form that the uwssage ought to take, and Mr. Freliugbuyseu submitted a draft on one, which, with some modifications, was that which was sent to the House. When the message reached the House Clerk McPerson thought it was of importance enough to read himself, a duty be seldom performs II read it though with tome . rhetorical effect, which was partially marred by his evident desire to see what was coming next. Wheu the passage was reached in which it is asserted that the more objectionable a message . is the more popular it seems to be, liiembers threw bitck their heads aud laughed. The effect of the message as a whole on the members was rather queer. Their disappointment eee'nied for a time to be shadowed by their astonish ment. They seemed to be surprised at t he tone of the message, and when some of them were asked to explain such .peculiar reception they said that they thought that the tone of the mes sage was not at al complimentary to the members of the House. Sonfeof them used stronger terms. More than half were very sorry, and a considerable proportion were also yery angry Wheu Mr. McPerson finished reading, nobody made any move for a moment or two. Then they silently adjourned. But if adjournment was silent, pro ceediugs afterwards wete not. There was a little excited talk. Some members went so fur as to say that the President had no right to veto an appropriation bill. Others said that a veto would work great damage to the Republican party. But the members of the Commerce Committee who had spent mouths preparing the bill, and had steered it through shoals and rocks of such a turbulent parlia mentary eu ns the House, were the saddest set of men seen in the House for some lime. At last oue of them struck his list violently on his desk and used words which seemed to give the others some slight relief, for they at once began to talk about what would b'e best to do. ' Some members were for attempting to rush the bill through the House over the veto. Then t here was a rapid estimate taken of the number and character of members who have Hot deserted Congress, and it was soon seen Unit such a step would fail to-day if attempted. While the bill was pending in th e House Gen. Arthur made himself an examination into many of the items, aud he informed a Senator that he early became satisfied that money was being appropriated . for which the Government ..would never get any good. It was his intention to veto the bill unless some", way ttoilld be pro vided by which he could indirectly veto the items that were objectionable to him. He, however, came to the conclusion that the bill ought cither to be vetoed or signed, and if vetoed, then perhaps by some supplementary legislation could be had by which the important aud proper appropriations could be made. This ii the view he has taken iu his mestage; From the Associate Preit. Washington, Aug. 1. A meeting of the House Committee on Commerce wus held to-uight, at which the mes sage of the Presideut vetoing the River and Harbor bill was the topic of discus&ion. Members are veiy recent as to the result of the meeting, but enough has beeu gathered to war rant the statement that the sentiment of the members was decidedly iu favor of recommending the message of the vetoed bill notwithstanding the dis approval. A member of Congress who is thoroughly familiar with the pro ceedings of the meeting goes so far as to say that there will be no attempt made to draft another bill, and that unless the original bill be passed by a two-thirds vote in both Houses no ap propriations will be made for rivers aud harbors during the present session. From another equally trusted source it is ascertained that the committee has practically and unanimously agreed to report a resolution to the House to morrow recommending the passage of the bill over the veto. Another meet ing of tlie committee has beeu called for to-morrow morning, wheu, members say, the subject will lie further considered aud a deutiuite plan of actiou formally determined. There is much speculation to-uight concerning the chances of success, ol theuttempt, which will doubtless be made to-morruw to pass the River and Harbor bill over the veto. The origi nal bill passed the House ou 17th of June by a vote of 119 to 47, and was the Seuate July U by 89 to 23, with leu Seuators paired on the question of iti passage. Thecoufereiicecommittee's report embodying the bill in its present form was finally agreed to in the House on the 26tb ult., 112 to 182, with 9j members recorded as "uot voting." The conference report was adopted by the Senate ou the previous day by a viva voce vote. It is argued by the friends of the bill that the vote iu the House on its original passage more fairly Indicates fts actual strength tbau does the vote ou the adoption of the conference re port, which they assert was opposed by some members simply iu the hope that ariefher coiifereuce committee would do better for their respective districts. The votes of these men are confidently claimed in aid of the at tempt to puss it over the veto. It ulso asserted that a much larger proportion of the opponent of the bill than of its pronounced friends have left this city, not to return during- the session. The yea and nay Vote being' taken in the House to-day ou the references of the adjournment - resolution, dis closed the presence of only 167 members, or just one more than the total vote recorded on the erlglnul passageof the River aud Harbor bill. Since the death of Representative Hawk, aud the unseating of Repre sentative Shelly, a quorum consists of 146 members. On the basis of the total number of members present and voting to-day, 112 affirmative responses will be required to-morrow in order to pass the bill over the veto in the House, and unless it obtains a two-thirds majoretyln that body it cannot be made the subject of a vote in the Rebate. If the vetoed bill reaches the Sentrtea change of 8 Votes from the recorded 23, which were cast against Its GtMgt nal passage, would be suffici ent to make it a law. The Job Put Through. From the Philadelphia Press. The action of Congress on the River and Harbor bill yesterday is an apt illustration V)f the President's observa tion that the more objectionable such a bill the stronger is its support. The vetoed bill was the most extravagant and indefensible of any River and Harbor bill passed by Congrss, and it is, perhaps, the first one that could have rallied sufficient votes to over come an Executive veto. The bill was originally passed in the House by HO yeas to 1 uays. It yesterday re ceived 122 yeas to 60 nays, In the Senate the original was 38 yeas to 23 nays : yesterday it was 41 .yeas to 16 nays. As far as parties are concerned, neither can reproach the other with the responsibility for the glgautic jobbery. In the Senate the affirma tive was seventeen Republicans and twenty-four Democrats; the uegative was twelve Republicans, three De mocrats, at id the Independent member from Illinois. In the House parlTea were Very nearly evenly bal uuced hi the vote, pro and con. The responsibility auacnes to C'ongreua as against the Executive and against the people. It is one of a number of recent instances wherein Congressmen have neither represented the popular will nor respected it. The local improve ments, whteh make up half the items of the bill, ure clearly unconstitutional, and if there is any demand for one half of them, aside from the Congress' meu and the contractors, who hope to pocket the money for themselves, that demand bus tailed to make itself heard. The President did his duty In Veto ing the bill, and his action at once nlet with flu endorsement from the pressof the country, heartily, emphatic and almost universal. His lucid ex position of the viciods features of the bill has intensified the popular con victiou of its impropriety. He has stated that it is Impossible for him to expend within the year so large a sum of money economically and udvauta geously. He further declares his con viction that the purely local grant have no warrant iu the Constitution While he feels that It Is Incumben upon til in to expend all the money appropriated by Congress forlegilmutt objects, even though the amount is excessive, it is a matter for grave con sideratioti wheather it may uot be his duty to withhold the purely local grants altogether. If Congress has n right to vote the money the Presidcu has as little right to expend it. If the former disregards the Constitution the President is in no degree relieved from his sworn obligations to look t that instrument for hi authority to act. It may be, therefore, that Presi dent Arthur will yet be able to pro tectthe Treasury from the full force o. the raid which a reckless and ex travagant majority in Congress have conspired to make upon it to promote their own personal and private ends. A Peculiar Funeral Ceremony. HOW THE CHINESE OF BOSTON PA IP THEIK LAST HONORS TO MOV 1ICK QAM. Boston. Jul v "81. A verv neculiaraml interesting ceremony was performed by iue Chinese at the funeral of Moy Dick Gam to-day, who uied of pneu monia a day or two uu. between thirty and forty Chinamen assemble d.

The first section of the mourners numbered about fif teen, carrying red and black trimmed with white, which form some Chinese character!). Headed by the Metropoli tan Baud of twenty pieces, the proces sion mached through some or' the prin cipal streets to the place of funeral, l'he Colli n was placed ou two stools iu the centre of Hie street- A hburton piuce, u quiet and retired locality aud two tables covered with white cloths were placed at ei.ds of colli n. A rousted pig uild dead sheep were laid ou the first table, beside a bowl ot rice, la which we're placed number of small lighted torches ami candles; on the stood table there were a large dish of baked rice and a Chinese box, besides a number of small cups Itlled with rice aud the chopsticks. Alter a few minutes of silence six Chinese, who assumed the duties of the Buddhist priests, and who were dressed iu white and black costumes, appeared at th sides of the coffiu and luuies ami cnanieu pravers and re sponses. The tables were cleared of tue nrsi ioou, ana on the first table they laid a large piece" of pork and another roasted pig, while ou the secoud table orangey and varieties of Chinese tood were placed. Theprayer for the dead was again resumed, last lug neurly a half-hour. After prayers to ' Joss" had been duly rendered, those of the Chinese who wished paid their respects to the dead by c6ming In front of the first table, two by two. aud kneeling aud bowing tbeir heads to the ground a liumlier of times, During the services, the Chinese bund. consisting of a "Tom Tom," cymbals aud otner lusturmeiits, played d liter ent selections.
