The Constitutional Convention.
This body re-assembled on Monday
-last la the city of Cincinnati, pursu
ant to the resolution of adjournment
" Tbe length of time it will require to
finish their labors, no one who gave
them the slightest attention previous
to the adjournment, can form any
opinion. Instead of confining their
time and attention to amending the
constitution in parts which experi
ence had taught might be made bet
ter, the majority of the Convention
resolved upon the labor of making a
new c o n s t i t ution throughout
throwing wide open the door for the
discussion at least, at the people's
expense, of every new notion set
afloat by the progressives of the day,
a class who have discovered a more
luminous light than experience to
guide them.
Had the Convention turned its at
tention lit first to the consideration
of the really defective parts, the Leg
islative,Jodiciary,and perhaps one or
two others, it could properly have
closed its labors by the 1st of July,
and the new constitution would have
been accepted or rejected by the
people at the last election. As the
matter stands now, the Convention,
judging as a mere looker on, is no
nearer the completion of the work
the delegates were sent there to do,
than after the organization last
Spring nothing has been settled,
although a great mount of talking
has been done. All but some $8,000
of the $40,000, appropriated by the
Legislature to defray the expenses,
has been expended. Of this state of
facts the people justly complain. Al
though there are just grounds of
complaint, let the responsibility rest
with those who chose from the first
to assume it. It is customary to hold
that party responsible for the meas
ures of deliberative bodies which
have a controlling majority. This,
as parties are constituted, usually go
ing together on all important mat
ters, is in general correct. But we
do "not wish to make our opponents
responsible as a matter of course, be
cause tbey have a large majority in
the convention. We wish to make
them responsible becanse they chose
to make themselves so. Every one
that has given the least attention to
the doings of this body, knows that
the Locofoco majority would be sat
fied with nothing less than setting in
judgment upon every feature of the
present constitution, condemning ev
ery thing in advance, if for no other
reason than that it was the result of
the labors of men who lived 40 years
ago. It is this majority that are just
ly accountable for this delay , which
requires a new appropriation by the
Legislature, and defers the adoption
ot the new constitution a year. J By
no hocus focus can anything else be
made to appear. With, what mo
fives and designs this majority re-assemble
will soon appear. We shall
be agreeably disappointed if, after
displaying their much learning, they
give us on the whole as good a con
stitution as the present.

For the incorporation of a company
to construct a bridge across tbe Ohio
river at Louisville. To avoid any
interference with navigation, the
bridge is required to be one hundred
feet above the highest known point
of high water, which will make the
structure one hundred and thirty-two
feet above low water mark, suffi
cient, it is alleged, to clear the high
est chimneys of any steamboat upon
the river at all times and stages of
water. The piers, also, are to be 700
feet apart

vorable advices have deen received
by the Crescent City from the En

report that they have discovered a

the Pacific Ocean, and having no

than had been hoped for, and will
largely reduce the cost of the work.

Air Important Decision. At Buf

having smuggled goods on board his

and he procured an indictment
against the offender. The case was
brought to trial before the court now

gave a decision that a custom house

Important Postal Arrange
ments with Mexico. We have
seen a private letter from Mexico
which states that Col. Ramsey, on
behalf of a company in New York.
has affected an arrangement with
the Mexican Minister of Finance
and of the Post Office, by which he
obtains the exclusive contract, for
ten years, for the privilege of carry
ing all loreign or transit mails
through the Republic from sea to sea.
The mail bags are not to be opened
n Mexico, but are to be weighed
and sealed. This was not conceded
in the Tehuantepec grant or treaty;
and according to the contract with
Col. Ramsey, that gentleman can
take the Tehuantepec, Acapulco or
any other route. This arrangement
is of the highest importance to this
country. It will enable us in a short
time to communicate with San Fran

Tbb Cholera in Jamaica. The
deaths from this terrible scourge, at
Kingston, are said to amount to over
250 a week. In other parts of the
island the mortality is .proportion

tions was suspended id consequence.
The Kingston Standard, of the 4th
instant says:
' Nothing can equal the distress
which exists on every side, ot the
anxiety visible on every countenance.
The deaths within the last twenty
four hours cannot be short of one
hundred; and a medical gentleman
has assured us that he had just left
thirteen dead and dying in one house.
Some idea may be formed of the
actual fatality in Kingston, by the
fact that by an official return, the
burials of persons who have died
from cholera, in the Episcopal burial
ground alone amounted to 4S0, be
tween the 1st of October and the 1st
of November. One third more may
be added to this number for burials
in other grounds not connected with
the establishment which would bring
the total of mortality to upwards of

The Sacramento Transcript gives
the particulars of a murder and exe
cution near Georgetown, on election
A man by the name of De vine had
taken to gambling, and as he was in
the habit of losing his money, his
wife hid all that came into his pos
session. On Sunday, as he had got
"broke," he demanded the money
which she had hid. She refused to
deliver it if he intended to use it in
gambling, whereupon Devine threat
ened to kill her. As he seized his gun
she blew out the candle and fled in
to another room; he however dis
charged it at her. The contents pass
ed through the door and killed her.
An enraged crowd, several hundred
strong, assembled forthwith, set De
vine on a horse, and rode him off to
a tree. Here they made him kneel
upon the horse's back, put the rope
around his neck and drove the horse
off, leaving him hanging from the
branch ol the tree.
With deep regret we announce
the death of one of our most aged
and respectable citizens, Daniel C.
Webb, while in attendance upon Di
vine worship, yesterday afternoon,
in the Unitarian church. He was.
apparently, in his usual health when
he entered the church participated
in the singing and other services, and
seemed deeply absorbed in the ser
mon; but just as the preacher; in il
lustrating the power of religion to
disarm death of its terrors, had quo
ted the dying words of I'tesident
Taylor, 'I have endeavored to do my
duty, and am ready to die,' Mr.
Webb was observed to droop, ap
parently in a swoon; and although
immediate assistance was rendered
by Drs. Moultrie and Whittredge,
who were present, all efforts to re
suscitate him were ineffectual, and
his lifeless body was conveyed from
the church to his residence.
Mr. weob was tor many years
connected with the - business of
