The Constitution was then adopted as a whole with but six dissenting voices. viz: Messrs. Win. IT. Cooler;, Thos. S. Crawford, Geo. W. Detriing, J;r., G. W. Ferguson, Thos. 1'. Harrison and John B. Vandergrifl. Mr. Ilackburu, of Claiborne, voted for it under protest. Twitchell, of B3ienville, voted for it, but protested against the Oth article. The announcement of the vote created applause. LANDS LAYINc+ TDLE.-Tho Iberville South says that while there are tLhou sands upon thousands of acres of land in the country, which were formely under culture, and which are to-day lying idle and growing np into weeds and forests, And a very large number of good people, who have no hinds of their own, would be willing to obtain patches of such un cunltivated spots to raise a crop to live upon and subsist their families, that the land owners are demanding such beavy rents that no poor man can afford to pay them; lands now perfectly useless and which give no revenue whatever, priced at four, five and even as high as ten dol lare yearly rent per acre. These very same lands, if sold, would not bring four dollars an acre. How-then can the rent for one year be placed higher the actual value of the land?-[ Picayune. THE FORTUNATE ISLES.-Perhaps the most beautiful of the old myths is the one that tells of the existence of the Fortunate Isles-a paradise in the west, where peace antd joy reign forever. The idea rests upon the combined desire to believe in, and a conviction of the truth of, the existence of another world. Man would not willingly let faith in that bless ed circumstance depart from him. Every nation has had its dream as well as its revelation on this matter. Rpmanceand reality have created wondrous future worlds between them, and ofthese were the Hesperides of mythology and the Avalon or Apple Island ofour Arthurian romance. The Crystal Palace of to-day is but a reproduction of the transparent mansion in which dwqlt all that had been noble, and where was deposited all that was useful and beautiful. It was no more difficult for a man to believe in a future existence or which lie knew nothing, than in his present, of which he knew little more. A sublime sense of religion was at the bottom of the old pagan idea which looked from this to another'and a happier land. ---- -~~ .--- -- The Oriqia of Cofini;ag .7'Irnra from Meat oand Drink.-The GothiC nation were famous of old, in Europe, for the quantities of food and'drink which they consumed. The ancient Germans, and their Saxon descendants in England were remarkable for their hearty meals. Gluttony and drunkenness were so very common, that those vices were not thought diagraceful; and Tacitus repre sents the former as capable of being as easily overcome by strong drink as arms. Intemperance was so general and habitual, that no one was thought to be fit for serious business after dinner; and under this persuasion it was enacted in the laws, that judges should hear and determine eanuses fating, and ot qfter dinner. An ItnTian nothor in his "An tiqnities," plainly affirmsthat this regu latibn was framed for the purpose of avoiding the unsound decrees conse quent upon intoxication; and Dr. Gil bert very patiently and ingeniously ob serves that from this propensity of the old Britons to indulge excessively in eating and drinking has proceeded the restriction onjurymen, to refrain from meat and drink, and to be even held in custody, until they had agreed upon their verdict. The entire dry goods trade of New York are loud in complaint against A. T. Stewart, who, they assert, is driving them aef tobankraptcy, by sellinggoods at thirty per cent, less than cost. His store is packed with customers day and nigtht, while the small steres are almost empty. His losses are estimated at the rate of one million per month, but with his immense wealth this i is' eafly provi ded for. It takes 16,000 bales of cotton, or 6,480,000 pounds, to supply the daily de mand of the ootton mills of the world. The Artlees :of Impeahmenat. On the 29th ult. Mr. Boutwell presen ted the following report of the Select Committee appointed by the House of Bipresentatrves to prepare articles of 'iimpeachment against the President. On the following day the frst article was adopted by a vote of 126 to 40, and nearly the saine vote on all others; ex cept the last, which was 108 to 48I The 7th article was stricken out: A4RTIcri 1. That Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, nmi aind ful of the duties of his office :und the requirements of the Constitution; re moved'Edwin M.

IIi.

IV. That Andrew Johnson, President of the United States, did unlawifully conspire with Lorenzo Thomas and others, to prevent E. M.

That said Andrew Johnson, Pre sident of the United States, (lid unlaw fully conspire with Lorenzo Thomas, by force to t-iko the property of the United States in the War Office, contrary to the act punishing certain conspiracies, and with the intent to violate the Tenure of Office bill, whereby said Andrew Johnson committed a high crime. VII.

WAD'E's CArnET.-One of the Wash ington evening papers, confident of the removal of the President, talks about Mr. Wade's cabinet, and prints the fol lowing names as likely to be selected: Chas. Sumner, of Mass., Secretary of State; Freeman Clarke, of New York, Becretary of the Treasury; William 1)D. Kelley, of Penn., Secretary of the Navy; Fred. Douglas, of New York, Secretary of the Interior; John M. L3ngston, of Ohio, Postmaster General; W. II. Car penter, of Wisconsin, Attorney General; Edwin Mf. Stanton, Secretatry of War of course. A plantation was sold in the rich amllu vial of St. Mary's parish, recently, at o10 per acre, which has 800 acres cleared and 150 anader fence, mostly high land, never koown to be overtowed, has plen ty of timtMt, amnd is only ten miles from a shipping port to any point in the world. Why cannot we have immigra tion with lands so eheap? SAssesmems m Propert y. Glea. HIanook's .recept-order in rela tion to State. fliances dteoares that the taxes for the current year, 1808. shall'be collected oi:the basis of the assessments of 1$8G, The xeasoh given for this in novitiou on the usual lmthod--avoiding the expense ofn new assesoy tut--would be sufficient, if the plait were not atten ded with serious difficulties and embar rassments, and if it were not stsre to -work great. injustice and. inelnality. Th9 ahla.nges in the .tenure of property from'noear to year are such that a large proportion o:' the taxes, based: on the assessments oft' a ptevious year, could not .be .eOlleoted at all. .Thousands of ieces of. praperty change handsiu this city alone, in the couroe of ayear; and in sucl cases the name. of .a fictitious owner,- in all probability, totally irre Jlponsiblo, wonldf appear on theu asesu mont books.. Of course the State would lose the taxes on all property in this sit uation. In this city, likewise,, manay buildings are' destroyed by tihe, in the course tof i: year; .yit the losers would be taxed just as if, they. had suifered( no loss. In all such eases as these either the State would los10 the taxes, or per sons wbuld' be taxed on propertyv hich they do not Own; the real owners totally elmdiug ipaymeat. There are. many in stances, too, in which the unproductive property of last year has been improved, and consoqneitly become liabe to a much heavier taxation than befoto. For instance on the square bonnded by Ful. tol, RIosseau, Second and Third streets, there were only+, three Iuildings when the assessessment rolls for 18S7 were made out--now there are nineteen tenements on that square. The battnre betweenu Canal and Conti streets was, last year, assessed as vacant lots, at $aiO,WO0. Now there are warehouses on this site, valued a:t $750,000. In other delpartments, likewise, there have -been great changes. Many cotm mercial firms have dissolved or failed since the last assessments were made; and many new firms have been estab lished. How will it be possible to re ieve the former; or to collect licenises from, the latter if the old assessment rolls govern the tax collectors? Besides this there are licenses to 110 provided for the new markets, shoe- makers, black. snliths, hucksters, peldlIers,' nd other tradesmen. contractors, pawfibrokers, bankers, etc. In short, the changes which take place in a great city like this, from year to year, are so numerous as almost to defy estimate. The conse queneo, therefore, of adhering to the assessment of 1867 would be great injus tice to individuals and sertion loss to the State. It is to be hoped that Gen. Hanceck will revise this portion of his order, and thus obviate the perplexities and emnbarranssimentts which would other wise be sure to ensue.-[.V. O. Crescent. STARTLING FACTs.-Olthio pays more tr.res than all the Southera States.--I a slbeh at Mansficlid, Ohio, liou. A. (G. Thurman, United States Senator elect, stated some facts which are well calcn lated to impress the people of the North with the direct interest which they have in restoring the peace and prosper ity of the South. Speaking of the taxes derived from internal tevenue alone, Mr.Thurman says that the amount paid by the whole ten of the Southern States for the last fiscal year was $19,69:3,740; hi the same year Ohio paid 235,0Sl1,109, so that the Southern States, which fo nmerly prid their full share, if not, more, of the taxation of the country, are now so reduced that, in the last fiscal year, Ohio paid $5,3S7,000 more than them all. Senator Thurman then under takes to demonstrate that the taxation of the people of this country is far greater than ever was imposed upon any people. In the last fiscal year, five hundred millions were collected in taxes by the General (Government alone. The taxes collected by the States amount to not. quite two hundred millions more, making the entire tax ation, in round lnlumbers, seven huindredC million of dollars. The gross annual production of the industry of the United States, according to the census of 1860, was two thousand millions of dollars. Allowing for the diminished production of the South, and for increased prices, it is not supposed to be greater inow. Thus more than one-third ofi' the whlolo product oftho country is absorbed by taxes. THE CATnoIIC LENTEN 1EGULTkTTON. -A pastoral letter from Archbishop Odin was read in the Catholic churches on Sunday, publishing the regulations prescribed by his grace for the approach ing Lent, which are as follows: "Owing to the existing presuro and to the difficualty for most persons to pro cure Lenten diet,the use of meat is again allowed every da3, excepting Friday, during Lant. All who first should on last days eat meat only at one meal, but it may be eaten at every meal by such as are exemnpted from faisting. 'Erery day, during Lent, it is prohi bited to use fish and meat at the same meal. "They who deem themselves reason ably exempted wholly or in part, from these regulations concerning fasting and abstinence, should consult their pastors or thetir codtifessors, and be governed by their advice. "The time assigned for the perform ance of the Eaater duty begins on the let Sunday of Lent, and ends on Trinity Sunday. "In every elinrh there shalf be, astar as possible, a course of staitable instrac tion, unfolding the obligations of Chris tians, and inducing the willing practice thereof."-[N. O. Vresoet. IAMPENDNQ I)ESPERCTION . Op SALT LAKE CITY,-The cors p fondei of the ClOveland (0.) Herald writing $om salt Lake City, makes tle'followvlig' re niarkable statements in relAtlon to the impending destruction of that town: The beautiful and pieturesqe Salt Lake, with its hundred mountain inlets, has now long been in sight, with its even varied and clha ping grand views -with its plan:d, unruffled bosom. He who beholds, beholds but to tnlhii'e. It is about 135 miles long, and about 75 miles across at its swidest place. I am informed that into it are. drained and poured, by river and rivulets, the waters of over 300,000 square miles. A vast amount of water, and yet this lake has no outlet. What, becomes of this water? Cam evaporation alone dispose of,(t? In a alsoinformed that the w"-ter of the lake rose last year three feet,. and 'a now continuing to riso at the same rate.. Should this continue tbe .a few years louger-beware, ye saints of the saintly city! Ye will be swallowed up as were the saints of the cities, of old, to)gether with theircities, by that other Dead Sea! On thosideof the mountains surrounding the lake, ata vertical height of at least 200 feet, distinctly traceable, can be seen the evidences of water mark, niado by the laving of waves, perhaps of centuries' duration, making it plainly evident to even the most incredulous, that in sonma former ago the lake had been very much larger than it now is, possibly at twenty times its present area. If it is true, as it surely is, that the lake is now rising, why may it not attain to its former level? What drained it? We cannot see nor do I believe that reasons can be given therefor. The cause of draining having ceased, or ceasing, it will again fill up. The lake is generally shallow, and no living thing exists below the surfoce-of its water, or floats upon its bosom. What kind of a throat is the best to reach high notes with? A sore throat. NGxao JLO;rIO ON VOTINo.-The Huntsville (Ala.) Democrat says: A friend who overheard it conversa tion between a non-voting negro and a neg~to voter, reports the former's argu ment as follows: ."Didn't I tell you dat you all was fools for votin', datde white folks had more sense dan you? You all voted, and do white folks didn't vote, and dey beat you." A talkative man neither hears nor is heard. IHe won't listen to others nor they to him. The following persons are entitled to vote in the severalStates: Maine--Every male citizenu; New Hamaphire--Every male inhabitant; Vermnont-Every man; Massachusetts--Every citizen; Rhode Island-E- very male citizen; Connecticut, Indiana, Illinois, Missouri, Iowa, New Jersey, Ohio, California, Oregon, Nevada, West Virginia and Colorado -Every white male citizon; New York -Every male citizen, but colored men required to own *250 worth of taxable property; Pennsylvania-Every white freeman; Wi scon sin--Every male person; Minnesota-E:very male person; Kansas-Every whitp male adult- l)ele ware-Every free white male citizeu; Marylaud--Every free white male citi zen; Tennessee-Every free white man formerly, now colored meln vote. If a man could make a noise like a locust, corresponding to the difference in weight, lie could be heard 1,600 miles. Secretary Seward has issued an order recommending all citizens of the United States, native or naturallzed, who have occasion to visit (great Britain or Ire land to procure passporLs tiron the I)e partmucnt of State, while the writ of ha. bce;s corpus remains suspended in Ire Ia mmd. Only c(nt, white person voted in Ala bama to every 150 negroes. Charles Sunner thinks that Ohio in annulling the acceptance of the consti tutional amendment, has been guilty of virtual secession. Capital pmnishment in Kansas-to be locked up tno days with eleven pretty git-ls in a jury-box. Oh! my! Who would ever find a verdict? In all the American national comete ries are the remains of 328,000 soldiers. The armed peace of kurope costs $1,500,000,000 a yea r. It has cost nearly three millions of (lollars to supply the Natioual banks with notes. The Montgomery State Sientinel (rad ical,) aTys CiGen.
