MONTGOMERY Vl(l AUGUSTA, fSOptflllbOl' 22. Tho State Convention to-day passed an Ordi nance abolishing -slavery by a vote of eighty-nine to three. It also adopted an amendment to the Constitution erasing all provisions relativo to slaves, making it the duty of the Legislature at its ?ext session to pass the necessary tan to protect tho Frcedmcn in their persons and property, and to guard the Stato against the evils which may aviso from their sudden emancipation. Litcrury Gossip. Tho Harpers have issued the sixteenth edition of Major Nichols's "Story of the Great March." It contains General Sherman's own corrections of ?is official report? contained in the Appendix? ono of tho emendations making a serious differ ence in the sense of an important passage, where the words "General Government" were misprinted "General Grant" in the earlier editions. A volu minous report from General Easton. Quartermas ter-General of Sherman's army, and a full index, Lavo also been added. A. K. Loring, of Boston, has issued a fresh war story, entitled "Standish," the plot of which is lo calized in Boston. It is a readahlo hook. Martin F. Tupper writOH to the London Athc nreum a protest against literary forgeries, in stancing a poem entitled "Portrait of a Puseyite," to which his namo was fraudulently attached. Ho adds a paragraph which contains a pun: "Now, your equity will take notice that this is not tho common ease of a parody; no one in his Heiises would complain of what is only* a more cheerful form of advertisement; and I for one re turn humble thanks to dear old Punch, and his younger brother Fun, for many of (here's a new joko for thom) vituperation; I'm used to it, and tako it as good-nature, though perhaps not always so intended." Tho London Atheiincum observes that "critics have long been at war as to tho power of tho hand to baino the power of sight, by work almost in finitely minute. Optical work is exceedingly deli cate, a thousandth part of an inch being quite a considerable space. Mr. lluskin asserted, aud Mr. Kingsloy proved, that Turner's dots ami lines were finer than tho linest work done upon such lenses as those of Lord Rosae's telescope. By-and-by the aun may be able to distance even the artist's pen cil hi producing small and yet perfect work. A fricndhaB sent to. us from Melbourne a eopy.oi" the Colonial Land Act of 18C5, dono in the photogra phic department of the Laud Office in that city, so minuto as to be scarcely visible to tho eye," the "whole fifty-two pages, folio, being printed on a bit of paper* about the size of a bank-note. This dainty production is the work of Mr. Moone." Mr. H. W. Flicker has jii6t published in London a volume of poems which he calls "A Quarter of a Century," giviner the odd reason for choosing this title that ho "has been acquainted with the gentleman to whom it is dedicated for five-aud iwenty years." An international scholastic competition is pro posed by the French Government. M. Duruy, Minister of Public Instruction, recently took oc casion, while addressing the professors and pupils of tho schools of Paris aud Versailles, at the an nual distribution of prizes, to announce that tho Emperor had determined that tho results of edu cation should have place beside those of art and industry at the coming Universal Exhibition. "I warn you, then, future laureates of the general competition of 18G7," ?aid II. Duruy, " that your works, whatever they may be, will bo sent to* tho committee of tho Universal Exhibition. If Ger many, England, Italy, and other powers will fol low our examplo, and oirliko conditions, we shall boo who is in best course." Aril further on tho Minister added : "Whilo tho immenso edifice is being orectod which is to encaso all the marvels of industrv, the Emperor desires to seo another temple raised by able hands for thogenius of France. Tho sciences, arts and letters, recounting their progress and his tory for the net tweuty years, showing what theories they have produced, what ideas thoy liavo given birth to, what facts they have dis covered or explained, what new forms of imagina tion or of art they have produced?in a word, what France has thought, set side bv side with what ehe has done, will be a noblo exhibition, full of interest as regards the past, and rich in prom ise for the future; for the future loans on the past in order to raise itself higher, and can onlv make the most of the support by thoroughly 'under standing it. If other nations will imitate our example, the moral exhibition will be worthy of the material show, and have the samo happy conse quences." , . * ?-.

The State Dopartinont is in receipt, thin morn ing, of intelligence from tho United StatCB CoubuI stationed at Constantinople, dated August 14, in which he says : I had hoped to bo able to report aomo abatement in tho ravagea of tho cholera, which ha_ been unusually virulent and malignant hero for moro than a month, causing almost an unprecedented panic among tho inhabitant-of Constantinople and vicinitv. It ?b estimated that the victims of this direful scourge already number twenty thousand? tho number of deaths in a Binglo day having reached one thousand. it i- anid that probably two hundred thousand of tho terror-slric-On l-Uabitauts havo loft the city. Business has beon almost ontuoiy suspend ed," and many places of business arc cloaed. Among tho MuBselmcn population nightly pro cessions perainbulato tho streotB, chanting hymns and prayerB for tho averting of tho scourge. Among the Greek population tho fright has almost resulted in a famine?bakers refusing to make bread, butchers to kill meat, and grocers to sell provisions. The panic among tho masses i3 out of all proportion to tho dangor,? Washington Re publican, 18th inst. - t 9 1 The New French Breech-Loadinq Rifle and Military Costume.?TboLondon Baily News' cor respondent, writing from tho camp nt Chalons, says: I havo juBt seen tho now breech-loading rifle, which has been decided upon aH the futuro fire arm of tho French infantry. It is an admirable weapon. The bore is about tho same as our long Enlieid. The breech is opened by the most simplo method, mid I should say was next to impossible to get out of order. The barrel is pulled away, as it were, from tho person who holds it, and pulled back in an instant. It can bo loaded and fired with tho greatest eaeo from thirty-one to thirty-three times in a minute. The bayonet it will have is to be tho sword bavonct, the samo as now used by the Chasseurs a Pied and the Zouaves. A new head-dress is also about to bo issued to the infantry. It is a very low shako, much the same make, Bhapo and height an that worn by Lord Rauclagh and the South Middlesex Volunteers; but it in made of scarlet cloth, and is most comforta ble and convenient to wear. With this and the scarlet knickerbockers, tho lengthy leggings, and the loose blue tunic, the Emperor has certainly managed to make Ii?b infantry of tho lino the best dressed in Europe; and they will certainly be tho best armed with the new breech-loaders they are now to have. ??? India?The Bhootan Ultimatum.?Tho Govern ment of India has sent an ultimatum to tho Ilujah of Bhootan. The viceroy sent a letter from Simla threatening tho Bhootcas with au advance of our foreo in the cold weather to wipe out the insulta suffered by the Mission. Tho letter was altogother so bonevofent and restrained in its tone, so liko the dignified dispatches which ono civilized Tower would address to another in Buch circumstances, that it ?b quite misunderstood by these savages of the hills. This misunderstanding as to tho extent uf our power and the depth of our weakness must have been increased in their eyes by tho disasters at Dewangiri and in front of Bula, and by tho mis erable conclusion of the cold weather campaign. But the Rajah has now been informed that unless he makes the most humble submission, yields to all our demands, and gives guarantees for the fu ture, we shall march to Toouakha and lay it low next November. In any case we are prepared to inarch a force of three thousand Sepoys and one thousand Europeans from Biixnr up the valley of the Cliinchu to Poonakha and Tassisuden?the other capital?on tho 1st November next. This force seems to be much too large, for tho Com missariat officers have calculated that, in a hilly country where, men must go in Bingle file over unbridged, and in ono case unfordable rivers, no less than 13,000 eoolies will be required. It is true that most of our great failures hitherto have aris en, as Sir Hugh Rose prophesied, from undervalu ing our enemy; but surely a force of 500 Europeans and a Gorkha regiment 680 strong would be suffi cient. At least such is tho opinion of military men here, and of all the officers who know the coun try. It is well that an end seems to bo at hand, so* sad is the state of our troops posted in the ma laria of the Dooars and a bolt of marshy jungle, below which is received the drainage of the hills. Correspondents on tho spot write most depressing account?, which are more than borne out by the officers, who pass sick through Calcutta ou'their yray home. . ? . The Gu.vno Suttlt.?A recent lecturer on Gu ano and the Guano Islands, before tho royal agri cultural college, says: "It is now twenty-two or twenty-three years since tho first crop of Guam? was imported from the Chinea Islands, on the coast of Tern. These islands comprise threo rocks, the joint area of which ia under threo thousand statute acres; and tho quantity of guano still upon these rocks is commonly estimated at fifteen mil lions of tons, rained at moro than ono hundred millions of money." His brother had visited the Quano Islands last year, and, as to the result, wo have the followirig statement: 'His account oi these islands is totally different from any I have over yet seen published, for instead of tho guano being exhausted in eight or ten years, which most writers assert, he says that the supply, compara tively speaking, is inexhaustible, the beds of guano being ia many places more than ono hundred feet thick, and two of the threo principal islands being yet untouched. On climbing tho cliffs an innumerable quantity of skeletons of largo marine animals woro pre sented to his view, such as those of tho soal and walrus or sea-horse, striking up out of tho Burface in such quantities that tho place appeared to bo completely white all ovor. PasBing along over tho island lie could scarcely take a step without liis foot breaking through into a liolo in which tho guano bird makes its nest. These holes extend five or six yards into tho bed of tho guano, and the birds are continually occupied in fetching fish from the sea to feed their young ones. Tho nuni bor is so immense that the air seems completely alive with them. By this account it seems tha't guano is not all excromenitious matter, as wo have hitherto .been led to suppose, but consists of a considerable amount of decomposed animal mat ter, in addition to tho excrement of birds. It is evident from this brief sketch that tho supply of guano will be at present by no means limited. - ? t 4 PERSONAL iNTELLIClENCE.-^Hon. Taul Dilling liam, who has been elected Governor of Vermont, was ono of tho old line Democrats, and in years past was run by them, of courso unsuccessfully, for Governor. Tho Democratic papers havo liad some fun ont of him in tho canvass. They have exhumed n letter written by him to John B. Floyd, Sir. Buchanan's Secretary of War, asking ah op portunity to buy the Fort Snelling property in Minnesota. Ho says he wants to removo from Vermont, "where genuine democracy is so poorly thought of by the great colored party who rule, and always will here," Ho refers the Secretary to several gentlemen who, he says, "will vouch for me as a man standing well wherever known."" -??? New Orleans, Septenibov 17.?Two-thirds of the people of A voyelles Parish, Louisiana, are in a i destituto condition, and an appoal has beon made to Gen. Canby, who has ordered immediate rolief. A serious row occurred on Itooket's grounds be ? tweeh tho cre?les and negroes on Sunday, and feava 6f another outbreak next Sunday has been prevented by a m?itai'y order. General Kwavno, of the Frcedmen's Bureau, in Alabama, alluding in a circular to the impression prevailing among negroes that plantations will be parcelled amongst them at tho beginning of the next year, tells them thoy need not hope.for any thing of tho sort, but must go to work and boh a vo themselves. - ? ? - A company of forty-throo women recently at tempted to ?leo from the bonds of Mnrmonism in Utah, but they were overtaken and carried back to thoir masters.

One sturdy man in the Mississippi State Conven tion ? a delegate named Crawford, from Jones county ? mado his mark as an original talker. One of his speeches was as follows: "Mr. PrcBidont?Sir: I havo come up hers to express tho fceUns of my constituents on the great snbjee. I como up here, sir, to represent my constituents whore 1 como from. Peoplo hoot and wink up tho streets, and Bay, 'tnj?>rc goes mossy-back from Jones*,' but, Bir, I have no pre judices; I am disposed to treat my enemies in a moro Christian, a moro missionary spirit than they treated mo. I am a mossy-back, sir, and I stand hero to-day to ropresont tho county of Jones, otherwise known as 'the free Stato of Jones'. "But let not people think to insult mo with im punity. I lovo a dog for lit? faithfulness, but the yolping of nappies I despiBO. Peoplo said that tho county of Jones, 'tho freo Sfato o? Jones,' seceded from NisBlboippi.

Wo did fight thorn liko dogB and will kill them | like helhoua?liko hellions. I say, sir. But I didn't come up hero to gas, sir, and 1 surrender my rights to tho floor, sir, expressing only tho ono sentiment, that I stand up for tho county of Jones in general; yes, sir, I am for Jones all tho time." At another time, referring to the opposition to the Constitutional Amendment because it ?lid not pr?vido for compensating slave-owners, Mr. CnAwronn said: "The principle 01 the opposition to the sec tion introduced in tho report of tho committee seems to be remuneration. I agre?; to that amendment, were it broad enough, but in tho essential all the provisos fall short. Those provisos havo only aimed at the remuneration to certain classes Who hive heretofore been tho owners of African slavis, while I, Mr. Presi dent, represent women and children of the Cau casian race whose crice are now ascending in my down-trodden county for bread. Yes, sir, in my suffering county of Jones, to-day, tho wails of three hundred and eijjity widowed women and shirt-tail children are Iisccndins before the God of right, and appealing'in tears to the powers ap pointed for relief ; yet, Ji tho midst of these facts, it appears that the entro sympathies of this body are ?lirecfed to that clips who arc presumptively Buffering from the puisage of tho section under consideration. I appeil, m honesty, to this* con vention to remember [ho white race, and not to be wholly absorbed in pe African. -W? Auago.?A inonunierjt erected to tho memory of the celebrated physiftst, astronomer and states man, Arago, has neoa raised at Perpignan, his birthplace, tho villuo? Estagel being within a short distance fromi that city. His son, Mr. Emanuel Arago, not Jess distinguished as a bar rister than as an active and able participator in tho revolution of 18f, was invited to attend tho inauguration of tho monument, but declined, upon the ground thit the high character of his father as an ardent ntriot and republican states man had been ostensibly ignored in the pro gramme pt the ccrcmiuy, which was consequently incomplete, since t&: scientific genius of his father could not bo ?separated from his zealous advocacy of progresdand liberty. The authorities of Perpignan were, lo doubt, anxiona to render all dun honor to tli4 national services of t lit ir illustrious fellow titii'ii, but were prevented from doing so by instructi?is from headquarters, Louis Napole?n being not'only jealous of living great men, but also of tin influence of the dead. It might militate too fojcibly against bis popularity to parade tho fact benro the peoplo that Arago, one of tho foremost den of European science, was also foremost in his reposition to the empire. - - -?
