Maine Law Vole; On Monday, the 20th ult., the people of Michigan voted on the Liauor Law W A question. The enactment is similar in its provisions to the 'Maine Law,' and a proviso was contained in it that it should be submitted to a vote of the people, to be approved or rejected by them. From the returns which we see published, we judge that it has been carried by at least 25,000 majority many counties voting for it in mass, and even the city of Detroit, giving 300 majority for it. Brownson, Catholic in the last number of his review, maintains. 'That if the Church should direct the Cath olic citizens of this Republic to abolish the Constitution, the liberty and very existence of their country-; ns a sovereign State, and, transfer it to the crown of Louis Napoleon Bonaparte, they are bound by a Divine ordi nance to obey. 07 All funerals in Paris are performed by one chartered, registered company.

The Portland Adverti ser explains how it happened that the splendid chaise, built as a present to Gen eral Pierce from his friends in Portland, came to be given to Col. Strickland. The chaise unfortunately was not completed until after the offices had been disturbed whereupon the zeal of the givers was so much cooled that it was put in a store instead of being sent to Washington. 1 Finally it was given to Col. Strickland, who was a disappointed applicant for the Bangor Colletorship. What a falling off! Intended for the President of the United States, and given to a rejected office-seeker !

From the same highly respectable and reliable source to which we have been previously indebted for important information from Chinaj we have received a copy of a pri vate telegraphic despatch received in London, from Trieste , by one of the first mercantile firms in tbe British metropolis: The India and China mails have ar rived, with advices from Canton to the 20th of April, and from Hong Kong to a latcr"date. The capture of the city of Nankin by the insurgents is fully con firmed. 'The Hong Kong Gazette of April 22 confirms this information, a"nd says that the capture was effected on the 21st of March. It adds, however, the important intelligence that the insurgents were sub sequently compelled to evactuate the city, and that on the 6th of April they were defeated in an engagement -vrith the Im perial troops about thirty miles south of the city of Nankins' There was also in circulation at the closing of the Africa's mails, a report to this effect 'Shanghae abandoned.' The information, however, was too vague to produce much effect, for it was impossible to decide whether Shanghae was 'aban doned' by European residents, by the peo ple generally, by the Imperial forceSj or by the insurgents. The most probable version seems to us the latter or that they had abandoned all attempts on Shanghae after being compelled to evac tuate Nankin. N. Y. Commercial Adver ser. Crew Match Race, On the 20th ult., a thorse race was to have taken place near Mon erey, California distance 10 miles, over a level country. The following were the stakes: 810,000 in cash (a side,) one thousand head of cattle (valued at $23,000,) and five hun dred young mates, (valued at JoOOO,) making in all 30,00040,000 a side. The Chinese think that the inventor of ink was one of the greatest men that ever lived ; that he enjoys a blessed immortality, and is charged with keeping an account of the man ner in which all ink is used here below, and for every abuse of it he records a black mark against the offender. A horse in North Carolina has turned out a magnificent mustache. The animal belongs to Dr. James, of Salisbury. The mustache is described as being as neat a one as can be found under the nose of any dandy in the country. The hair is about an inch in length just under the nostril; and branches out from the center. The Cincinnati Gazette says that two young men, near that city, recently caught a calf, and while alive, commenced taking its hide off. As they got it nearly off, the bellowings of the animal brought together some of the neighbors, and the scoundrels fled. They have not yet been caught, but an eftbrt is be ing made to arrest them, when we trust they may be punished to the fullest extent of the law.- Fast Traveling Mr. S. Lawrdnce, of Boston Mass., left La salle, Illinois, at three o'clock Wednesday afternoon, last week, for home, going by way of Chicago, Cleaveland and Buffalo, a tench of which cities he made a short stop. At Buffalo he took the "lightning express train" to Al bany, and from there reached Bosten via the Western and Worcester Railroads, arriving on Friday afternoon, at half-past four o'clock. The actual distance traveled was eleven hun dred and fifty miles, and the time consumed only for'y-nine and one half hours! The Hot Week in June. For five days, commencing on tho 19th, the weather was truly exhausting and op pressive. Many lives have been lost, a larger number, it is probable, from a similar cause, than we have ever before been called upon to chronicle. On Thurs day eveuining we had a fine shower, aud thereafter there was a decided change for the better. The range of the thermome ter, at the merchants exchange, from the 18th to the 24th inclusive, at 3 P.

At as late an hour as six o'clock last evening, the thermometer in dicated a temperature of 95 a remark able degree of heat for so late a period in the day. Journal of the 22d. The Hot June. The present month is likely to prove memorable in the annals of the weather a.s the hot June. We have had nothing like it for many years. According to the Register at McAllister's in Chesnut street above Second, the following has been the condition of the temperature since 1843 June 16, 1843, 95deg., June 28, 1844, 95; June 9, 1845 95; June 19, 184G, 92; Juue 28, 1847 97 ; June 27, 1848, 96; June 22, 1849, 97; June 29, 1850, 93; June 30, 1S51, 95; June 30, 1852, 95; Juue 20, 1853, 9G On Thursday, the loth, at noon their thermometer stood at On the lGfchj same hour " 17th, " 18th, " 20th, " 21st, " 22d, " 23d, ou octrees On t 88 do 91 80 93 95 93 93 do do do do do do On Wednesday last, at 3 P.

The Boston Traveler gives the following particulars in relation to the weather m that city The greatest altitude we ever observed in Juue was 97, for a few minutes only on the 30th, in 1841, and which within an hour was followed by a shower of the largest hail we have ever seen. Since that time tho thermometer has risen in June to 93 and upwards, on G days, viz : on June 25th, 1843, to 93 k a it it 9th, 1845, to 93 22d, 1849, to 95. 20th, 1S50, to 94V i r?f u i sr.o fr nysl But the hottest day in J unc, on the average, within the last 12 years, was the 20th in 1350, when at Brooklyn, N.

At the Observatory at Cambridge, the thermometer yesterday as is usual in the country, on a hot day, rose two degrees higher than in this city, or to 97, the change in the wind took place at oh 47ra., or 17 minutes later than here, and the fall in the thermometer thereby pro duced, was twenty degrees. Inquirer. The Beginning of the End. Gen. Scott was defeated last fall, main ly -by the cry of the Locofocos that he would appoint Mr. Seward and other free soilers to office, and put down the agita tion of the slave question was the object of the silver gray leaders who opposed and defeated Scott. Gen. Pierce was held up as the Union Compromise can didate pledged to sustain both and show no favor to Disunionists, north or south. The Pierce men denounced Sew ard and all who opposed the Compromise measures, as enemies of their country. Well, three months of the Pierce reign hag passed. That shows that his pledges have been violated that rampant Dis unionists, north and south, have been awarded, to the exclusion of Union and Compromise men. Indeed his favors have been generally extended to the advocates of the Nashville and Buffalo Conventions. This fact has become so notorious that prominent Locofoco editors and individu als, all over the country, aro denouncing him. The Union men of the South, gen erally, the New York Democrat and others north, join in denouncing his course. Even in New Hampshire, at a State Con vention, Edmund Burke, late Commis sioner of Patents, and editor of the Union at Washington, offered a resolution cen suring him for having appointed Free Soilers and Secessionist o office, to the neglect of the National men of the p'arty. Even in the New York Legislature, Sen ator Coolcy, a leading Locofoco, declared war against him for holding Martin and John Van Buren in regard, without ask ing pardon for defeating Cass in 1848. This is the beginning of the end of three months, but not the end of four years. Canton (Ohio) Repository.

The borough' of Pottsville wishes to borrowS16,000, to cancel some of its outstanding orders.- The iate Robbery. We published a few weeks since a fattier from Mr. Merriman, late Representative from this county, explaining his position, arid sus taining the charges made by him against tire Canal Commissioners. But we come now to the figures and facts. Before the Legislature, and in his letter, he charges the Canal Board with fraud, and suys that they 'defrauded the Taxpayers out of $150,000 ih letting 2G miles of grading on the New Portage Rail road, by letting the work to favorites, when as good men as are in the State bid for the work that much lower.' It will be remem bered that a locofoco committee white-washed the conduct of the Canal Board, notwith standing the evidence produced against them was of the most conclusive kind. She an nexed statement of a portion of the lettings, on the work referred to, with the amounts at which the different sections were let, and the bids thereon, will show the Tax Payers of the State that the charges preferred by Mr. Merriman were too true. These figures are taken from the published testimony taken before a committee of investigation, and from a part of the Legislative Record. Read and ponder these fncts : SECTION, No. 14.

It is seldom that so large and respon sible an enterprise is pushed with so much energy and vigor ; a result attributable to the strong, influential willing, working stockholders embarked in this important and most valuable undertaking. The in terest and exertions bestowed upon this object by the wealthy and substantial cit izens of New York and their neighbors, amount almost to enthusiam, and betoken a bright future in the destiny of the Wy oming and Lackawanna valleys. Lackaivamia Herald. Coup do Solid or Sun Stroke. A correspondent of the New York Times , gives a few precautionary hints upon this subject, which are important, lie says,. Coupde Soliel is caused by the di rect action of the sun's rays upon the head, producing severe congestion of the brain, or effusions of blood in and over its sub stance. The patient, when attacked, falls or drops suddenly, deprived of sense and motion, and frequently dies on tbe spot. Sometimes, however, reaction takes place, ending in inflamation of the brain. All persons exposed to the influences of tho sun in hot weather, are, of course, liable to an attack of coup de sol tel. But from a variety of circumstance?, both in rela tion to the constitutional habits of individ uals and extraneous influences, some peo ple are more liable to it than others. Tho principal predisposing causes, or circum stances which predispose to this affection, lie in that peculiar conformation of the body, consisting in a large head, full face, florid complexion, short, thick neck. broad shoulders, ample chest, globular abdo men, short stature, inclined to plethora, and obesity. Such individuals are often subject to bleeding from the nose, and to sensations, of weight and fullness in tho head, particularly when, or after stooping or making unusual body exertion. When in bed they find it necessary to have their heads elevated, as when low they aro restless: and their breathing more difficult. Individuals of this description, whose vo cations exposo them to the sun, should most assuredly change their business in summer to in-door work. The symptoms of its approach differ somewhat. In some cases its attack is very sudden, with slight indications, if any, of its approach ; though as a gener al thing, vertigo, or dizziuess, ringing iri the ears, dimness of sight, pain and heav iness in the head, are the precursors of an attack of coup de soliel, and of apoplexy. rersons experiencing tnese symptoms, or their approach, should immediately quit work and ride home: and by making as soon as they cany free use of cold applica tions to the head, will, in all probability, recover. 1 lie treatment ot coup de solid should be prompt and sinrple. Cold wa- or, in affections of this kind,- possesses surpassing efficacy; though much depends- upon its sudden, as well as upon its time- y application; Therefore, while same one goes for a ikilful physician, put into immediate prac tice the following directions ; and in all irobabihty, the lite of the patient will bo saved, viz : Place tho patient in a Cdol md airy situation, with his head and shoulders elevated, and while some one is removiug his cravat, unbuttoning his shirt collar, aud removing, or loosening what ever else that maybe tight about his per son, dash suddenly eold water on tho lead. Ibis may bo done with a pitcher, or any suitable vessel, held at some little distance above the head, pouring out up on it a large and steady stream. Mustard plasters may also be used o- ver the upper parfc of the feet, and on tho wrists. But continue the water, and the patient must be saved. It is hardly pos sible to speak too highly of the beneficial influences of cold water in the treatment ot'eoup de solid. Many violent case3 of this1 anu aiso or apopiexy, nave Deen most suc cessfully cured by it. As to afer treat ment, the attending physician will advise, on that subjecfi. HQueer, that since the Whig party is dead our Locofoco brethern should bo making such a fuss about tho next elec-r . " "at s ln the wind, gentlemen not frightened at your own shadows, wo; uope.
