We have before us an old pamphlet entitled "Jocrsai op the Cohvettioh, of the Territory of the United Slates, north-west of the Ohio, began and held at Chiilicothe, on Monday, the first day of Novem ber, 1802, and of the independence of the United States the twenty-seventh. From the Press of N. Willis, Printer lo the Convention." ' This Journal, with all its affixes and prefixes, numbers but 46 pages, and, therefore, can in noway com pare with the vast and voluminous book, which the present Convention is preparing for. the delight and edifi cation of posteritv. In fact, we re gret that the Old Convention was so impressed with the idea, that brevity is the soul of wit, that they have left us a bare skeleton of their acts and scarcely a vestige of their thoughts. But they did leave us a Constitution a free Constitution in which the sovereignty ol the people was not restrained by despotic prohibitions, and uuder which they have lived happily, comfortably and prosperous ly lor half a century. I he best luck, which can be wished for the people of Ohio under the New Con stitution is, that they may fare no worse than they did under the old one. it was tormed, when Uhio knew no party divisions, and when the Convention itself save a willing tribute to the administration of Mr. Jefferson. A brief reference to the Convention may not bs uninteresting now. The Convention consisted of thirty Jive members.representing nine coun ties. 1 he whole Miami country was then divided into the two counties of Hamilton and Clermont: the whole Scioto country into the coun ties of Ross and Adams; the whole Muskingum country was contained n the county of Washington, and the whole Western Reserve in th count' of Trumbull. The residue of the State was divided into the counties of Jefferson, Belmont and Fairfield. About one half the Terri tory of Ohio then belonged to the Indians. Among the members of the Con vention were four, who afterwards became Governors ol the State, viz: Tiffin, Huntington, Worlhington and Morrow, and three who were sena tors, viz: Morrow, Worlhington and John Smith, who was expelled, for aiding Burrs expedition. The Printer to the Convention was N. Willis (the father of N. P. Willis the poet,) who also claimed to have established, at Chiilicothe, the first religious newspaper printed in the United States. The President pro tern of the Con vention was one of the most remar kable men in it Dr. William Go- forth, of Cincinnati. He was a practising physician ol merit, of in telligence, and scientific taste. John W. Browne of this county, was an Englishman by birth, and a Llergv man, the father of S. J. Browne, and one of the first persons interested in advancing the Cincinnati College. Governor Morrow, then represented this county, and so did John Smith, the after expel led Senator. J he reg ular President of the Convention was Dr. Tiffin, of Ross, by birth an Englishman, one of the earliest set tlers of Chiilicothe, and afterwards Governor. The Western Reserve had a single member, in the person of Samuel Huntington, afterwards Governor, It may be remembered, as an ex ample of sectional and popular mu tation of opinion, that Mr. Hunting don, who then represented the Web tern Reserve, voted against every proposition to give the colored people the right of suffrage; while all the Hamilton county members, (ten in number,) except John Smith, voted for their right to suffrage. I hings atmear to be reversed in the present Convention. ' On the question of negro suffrage, the representatives of Ross and Fairfield occupied the same ground then ihat they do now; al ways opposed to any mingling of races and rights. The question whether the negroes then in the State should vote was finally decided in the negative, by the casting vote of the President of the Convention.'Dr. Tiffin. The Convention met on Monday, the 1st day of November, and ad journed Monday, the 29th day of November, having been in session just four calender weeks. Each ar ticle of. the Constitution was refer red lo a Committee, which repor.led nrcmptly, and very little debate was indulged on ths amendments propo- easf ; Some omissions . in -the doings of the Convention are worthy ot re mark, as contrasted with what many think the work of supererogation the present Convention, t First, no attempt was made to prevent or res trict the existence of Banks; for, the State was then ia the midst of hard-monev miUetuum! It wa realized on all sides, i Farmers paid their neighbors for land or goods in cut mmey, whereby . a dollar was made into nve quarters! - Merchants transported specie in - saddle-bags, and settlers who bought land of gov ernment carted their dollars over the mountains, and General Findlay, the Receiver at Cincinnati, locked it up in his Sub treasury box. Next, we find nothing about repeal, or prohibitions on credit, or restric tion on corporations; tor, it never entered into their heads that com mercial corporations, for beneficial purposes, could be such awful crea tures as they are now represented to be! Finally, we find no attempt to bridle the sovereignty of the people. On the contrary, the old Convention seemed to think that the people were able to govern themselves and at the close of their labors passed a vote of thanks to President Jefferson and Congress that they also had looked upon it in that point of view; and the young State of Ohio was about to legislate for her own affairs. These were some of the things in which the Old and New Conventions seem to have thought not exactly alike. We may only hope again, that if the new Constitution should ever have a real existence, that this State may grow and flourish under its influence for half a century to come. Cin. Gaz. Modern Inventions—A New Composing Modern Inventions—A New Composing Machine. The Courrier des Etats Unis pub lishes the following account of a new composing machine, which has been invented in France: "An important problem has just been solved; the means of putting together with speed, and at small cost, moveable type, is discovered. A French engineer, after having ta ken everr precaution against imita tion or counterfeit, as well in France as abroad, has entered for exhibition at the World's fair, a composing machine, which surpasses all the improvements which have been at tempted up to the present day. The new machine, which rejects the whole system now in use, comprises within itself, a distributor and a set ting-stick; being each, cases inclu ded, about twenty tour inches in depth. Within tins space are con tained sixtv-four thousand letters re quired by the compositor in the dav The same cases adopt themselves al ternately to the distributor and the compositor. After an intelligent disposition of the new cases, a man can compose with four different characters, Ro man or Italic, without distributing the cases, or leaving his place. The machine distributes, regulates and interlines, at a rate of ten thousand ems per hour; it does not require, on the part of the compositor, any new apprenticeship. The inventor, who has labored fifteen years at his work, has endeavored to preserve as much as possible of the actual meth od, and to employ the characters, tools, and accessories, now used in printing. This remarkable inven tion is of immense importance to the typographical art; and it is consider ed that it may yet be applied with advantage to the electric telegraph." In connection with this invention, and the American invention of Col. Hoe, our cotemporary, the Courrier des hlats Unts, makes the following just remarks: "We here behold a practical, and most happy solution, of new problems; and such improve ments could not come more oppor tunely to respond to the wants cre ated in modern society, bv the im mense development of the press. When we reflect on the predominent part, which this agent ol thought performs amongst every civilised peo ple; when we reflect upon all the in terests, the wants, the necessities, in the relations of people to people, family to family, man to man, which t embraces, we have a right to ex pect that the human mind should apply itself to produce in this de-" partment ol invention, Ml the won ders of which God has placed wilh- n it, the germ and the power. Casualty. While the steamer Wihtman was leaving the wharf on Saturday her guards came in con tact with the steamer Paul Ander son with such force as to break the lashings of one of her guard 'fenders, which fell upon the head of the Mite of the Wightman Morgan Day, and killed him almost instantly. His skull was fractured shockingly, and blood flowed from his mouth, ears and nose very, freely. The deceas ed resided near Franklin Furnace. - Ports. Enq. The Six Law Students. a s Some twenty years ago there were at Lebanon, Warren county, O., six Students at Law, who were all. admitted to practice in the sever al judicial courts of Ohio. They were Courtland Cushmg, Kobert C Schenck, William B. Probasco, Milton Williams, Charles S. Bryant and Richard R. McNemar. Since the "admission" of these Sprigs of the Law" we have looked with anx ious solicitude to see how well, or how ill, they would succeed in the vicissitudes of life. Mr. Cashing lo cated at Madison, Ind., and soon rose to the station of one of . the District Attorneys of that State; and thence was elected to the office of President Judge of the "Common Pleas, in which capacity he served many years with honor to himself. and satisfaction to the Baf. He is, bv a recent appointment, U. S. Charge de1 A fairs at Quito, South America. . Mr. Schenck established himself at Dayton, Ohio, in the practice of his profession, in company with Judge Crane, and was in due time- "sent to Congress" from that District, where he acquired, for himself, name worthy "an Ohioan," and an American Statesman. He is now appointed Minister of the U. S. to Brazil. Mr. Probasco went to"' Florence, Alabama, and entered, with high hopes, and a brilliant promise, upon the business of his profession. Hav ing succeeded to a lucrative practice, he died in n few years thereafter, res pected and beloved by all who knew him. We mourned his death as that of a brother. Mr. Williams remained at Leba non, where he opened an office, and succeeded almost immediately to a business nearly equal to the old brethren. He still resides there, and js eminent among "the Lebanon Lawyers." He is now a prominent member of the Constitutional Con vention in session at Cincinnati. Mr. Bryant, after pitching his tent, first at Granville, then at Day ton, finally obtained "a habitation and a name" in Cincinnati, where by diligence and application in the busi ness of his many clients, it is said, he has "become rich. ' "' The lust one named in the list, went to Urbana, to play his part in the busy world, and where he remained in "the practice," with more or less success till May last, when he migrated to Springfield, opened a Law office, and became the Editor of the "Republic" In this new field o! Industry, he hopes through the kind indulgence of trier.ds, and the increasing patronage ot the public, lor which he is truly grateful, to make his labors, more than ever, subserve the cause of his country, and the welfare of his fellow- men. jnougn said. Who can name an equal number, starting into business life at the same time, from the same place, who, leaving our humble self out ol view, have succeeded more favorably than these "Six Law Stu dents?" We give the hand of a kindly greeting, to the survivors of our little company, and wish them all a happy and still more useful, life here, and one of joy hereafter. Spring. Rep. CTWe find the following in the Memphis Enquirer: Mr. Victor St. Victor, an elderly gentleman, aged nearly eighty, who has for a great many years been en gnged as a teller in the Bank of Louisiana, was so affected by being supplanted in his omce, at iew Or leans the other day, that he went crazy, snatched some $80,000 of bills and ran off.. He was found by the police the next day, in a sta'e of nu- ditv.and some o0,000 of the money recovered. The officers of the Bank had told Mr. V. that his removal from the office ol Teller was not dismissal from the service of the Bank, but to assign him lighter du ties, more suitable to "his age; but the effect seem3 to have been to un settle his reason. .It is a melancholy affair. . ; ' We learn from tne Louisville Courier that the Louisville and Frankfort Railroad is now completed fifty-three miles. The cars run with in 12 miles of Frankfort . The Com pany will soon commence extending the rails in that city in the direction of the depot . Tb4 inflaenza prevails extensively at Berlin. A letter frotn Berlin, Prussia, dated January 7, says: . The medical reports ol the health of Berlin are not very satisfactory; in a population of 400,000 there are' no less than 60.000 persons ill ' of the grippe and influenza, the results of the chang Bble and unusually mild weather." -fappnrentlv Trahstcsioji or thr Blood. We find in the Courier des Etats Unis of the 23d instant, a curious and interesting case which occurred in the Hospital of Saint Louis, in Paris lately, in which the blood of one person was transfused into the veins of another, and the life of the recipient saved or at least prolonged by the operation. The patient was a woman and after her accouchement a profuse and exhausting "hemorage followed. Her pulse had ceased to beat for several minutes, and noth ing more than a slight undulatory shuddering could be perceived from time to time. She was evidently dying, and as the last resort of his art, the surgeon, M. Nelaton, deter mined to try what effect transfusion would have, which determination was soon carried out One of the attendants, M. Dufour, voluntarily offered to lose his blood in the cause of humanity, and the required quan tity being taken from his arm, it was injected from a syringe into a vein of the head of the patient, and passed immediately into the system. The blood was injected at about it natural temperature. The whole quantity was from thirteen to four teen ounces. There were two in jections, the first of about eicht oun ces and alter an interval ol five mm utes, five or six ounces more. The woman revived immediately and was doing well lor a week after the operation, when she was enrned off by an inflammation of the bowels, 1 he transfusion was considered to be perfectly successlul. A minute account of tne process of transfusion is given, but that we omit, as every surgeon would know how to perform the operation. 1 ransfusion of the blood was tried n England and France 'nearly two hundred years ago, and after being a medical hobby for a few years, fell into disrepute and was altogether abandoned. At Paris it was pro hibiled,on account of some unsuc cessful experiments, and Perrault, a distinguished anatomist, give it the coup de grace by a bon mot: A man could not chan je his blood, he said, as he does his shirt. And so this theory, like a thou sand others, was raid upon the shelf, forever, until resuscita ted by M M. Prcvost and Dumas, about thirty years ago, who demon strated, by experiments on animals, that Hood artificially supplied by transfusion would renn;mate them and restore the vital energies; but the blood transfused must be from an animal of the same specie of the recipient, and the physical and chem ical properties or the same. And it ought always to be the blood of a young and healthy person, when the experiment is to be tried on a hu man being. The old experimenters erreH by injecting the blond of quadiipeds into the human system and thevdid not enploy the same degree of skill that is now employ ed. Within the last twenty five jears there have been not less than ten or twelve cases of transfusion in England and Germany, and nil have been successful the account says. But, upon the supposition that they have not all been still if a mijty has, it is encouraging enough to jus tify the experiment in desperate and very doubtful cases. If the blood of nil healthy persons is physically and chemically the same, or very nearly so, reason would seem to in dicate, that in cases where a defi ciency in the quantity of blood in ihe system is what makes the danger, then an artificial supply would be a natural remedy. Washington Globe. Tiie St. Lawrence. This fine frigate is almost ready for sea, and will sail in the course of a few davs. She carries out, as we learn from the New York Courier, a much more respectable cargo, as to quantity. than was at first anticipated the contribution from the United States to the great Fair being about five hundred seperate consignments. This, we think, considering the shortness of the time, and the fact that our pursuits are "chiefly agricul tural, will prove acceptable. The train on the Knishtstown Rail road, Indiana, was last week precinita' ted down an embankment twenty feet, smash?ngup a locomotive, one passen ger and three burthen cars, breaking the leg of a fireman and severely inju ring an engineer and a lady passenger. A gentleman, in Boston, who has relatives on board the. Atlantic, has offered to contribute one thousand dollars-towards the immediate fitting out a steamer to proceed, to the Azores in search of her. ,'Thi suffi ciently indicates the great anxiety respecting her. ' to in to of the 4th in Correspondence of Gallipolis Journal. CINCINNATI, Feb. 15, 1851. Eds. Journal: The scripture ay, "There is a time to siDg, and a time to dance," and I am pretty well convinced that there is a proper time for all things, else would we so jumble together events and actions, that it would be hard to tell whether we were singing or dancing in this world to any other music than that of folly, or any other piping than that of idleness. I was forcibly impressed with this fact, by a few moments observation yesterday in the Convention. It appears as if some of the members were impres sed wi.h the idea that they are tent to this Convention, solely for the purpose of expressing all the folly they could, (and some are capable of a great deal I assure you) and then to wrangle with their fellow-laborers, because they are disappointed in their own-powers to en act foolishness. A few days since bow ever, the real working portion of the members urged forward and adopted a rule limiting each member to 20 min utes at a time, and compelling them to say in two speeches, all they should have to offer on any proposition before the house. This has had the effect to put a quietus on several of the spouters, and a great improvement is already dis ccrnab'e in their labor and actions A rather spicy deUnte was bad the other day on the proposition to give the female portion of our community the right to vote, and several per lie men took the occasion to deliver their opinions upon the principles of universal suffrage, but it was evident from the general appear ance of the members, that the Con ! o, .ne moniuer., . ui o- ir.n is not yet so far in the advance, , adopt and incorporate into our fun- ental 'law, a proposition so innova - venti as to daraental law, a propos tins and novel. Every sensib!o matron in our land fand they are lesion! already exerts as powerful an influence on the I minds and character of our peoplo as j they would if allowed to mix up their time with electioneering speech-making voting. 1 have long held to tho J opinion, that a proper system of uni-j versal education would correct a vastj,he number of the real evils that exist ' ( .ociety; and the true P'P'"f ernmenl, when fmrly understood and practically carried out, would do away with all the imaginary evils that have ' so long haunted the minds nnd disturbed imnginotions of a gaodly number of philosophers and reformers. Your from Gallia, whencverhe puts(ty in his say it is to some purpose and he j will leave hi mark upon tho new Con-jan(j ef.fiifistn I om nr. mnrrn nl hurnnn nature: and in connection with this I will add, that Mr. Iforton of Meigs oc casionally gets into tho chair, and he seems perfectly at home. Business is put forward in regular locomotive fash ion, and yet with sufficient care and tact to avoid all seeming carelessness or want of consideration. He would make his mark in whatever station he might be placed, and if ever called to a mora cnmmadinng position in the public ser vice, will eminently fill it with credit to hinifelf and honor to the country. : The weather hero during the -. tor has been unusually mild and occa sionally snrinclikc; so that wo have hardly realized the fact of old winter's presence among us. Politics and politicians - seem very quiet just now, and the only thing that has excited the public mind of Icte, was the recapture, in this city, of a fugitive slave a few days since, and her volun tary return to slavery. She was accompanying her young master to his home in Kentucky, and while tho boat was aying at our wharf, ' she went on shore with her chi d and ' hid away on another boat, thinking probably, that her master wou d leave, the city on the same boat that brought rhem to town. She was discovered however in her biding place, but again j attempted to escape on reaching the j shore. Her master overtook and seized upon her, but her colored friends co'lec ted around, and a battle commenced in which police officers, abolitionists, negroes, &.C., engaged, and ended in the reenpture of the girl, who was at once hurried off to the lockup. The examination took place next day, but before it was concluded, she requested be returned without further trouble to her master. Thus ended the nffiiir. In my next I will give you some items regard to the game that is now being played by certain individuals, in order commence a constitutional assau'i the financial of this ; i I LAMINGTON. Arrest of Theatricals. Junius Brutus Boote, Jr., (comedian,) and Miss Harriet Mace, both of the theatrical profession, were arrested on Thursday night nt Hoston, just after the close of the performance, lor Being entirely ioo familiar, i he arrest was al rne insiance Mr. Booth's wife, Clementina, a well known actress here.

They were earned to Brookline, Mr. Booth giving 8403 bait, and Miss Mace 830 do., to appear at Bedham on the Monday In April for trial. The report of the . keeper of the at Boston, for the year 1S50, shows the startling fact that of 5,JU9 persons committed, mostly for crime 1S50, 3.194 were foreigners, while only 1 315 were natives of this coun try, thus giving 1,373 more foreign! criminals than natives - It LAWS OF OHIO. .

The Columbus correspondent of the Portsmouth Inquirer gives the f0lowing os tho resuU 0, th e com promise between the Iron and Scioto and Hocking Valley Road relative to the Jackson county subscription: ' Our railroad bill, reported a day or two since from the Judiciary com mittee, was on motion of Mr." Moore yesterday, referred to a select com mittee, . consisting of himself, Mr. Bundv and Mr. Clierrinirton.

The leading leaiures oi me pmpuseu amenaments are: to permit tho two companies to unite at the present proposed junc tion, if they can agree upon terms, which there can be no doubt they will do. II not it gives the Iron company power to use so much of ur road in Jackson county as will be built witlAhe $100,000, paying reasonable sum for such use; if they agree within three months to do so, ' they are to relinquish any claims 'hey may now have to the right of way along liaie s creek. 1 think thin was a happy conception of our . Representatives, and I should think would be satisfactory to our compa ny. It should, though it may not be to the Iron company.
