• Alabama has just held a convention,

Inaugurated by the Cortes, he !nay be
again deposed by the same, sovereign
power. And herein lies the danger,—
that the new Regent will be more or less
than man, if he abstains from intrigues
for the enlargenient orperpetuation of his
functions, seeking to mould the majority
of the Cortes to his ambitions purpose.
The intrigues which are to be expected
'in that body-against him •will supply to
himla - motive, if not a justification, for
core espondid efforts to maintain and in
crease the Regent's authority. The
Statecraft of each. department of • the
government will hinge upon the unset

direction may be seen the most critical
peril for the internal peace of Spain.
With each stage of advance toward the
complete adjustment of their internal
polity, the Spaniards give new proof of
their sincere, grave and earnest devotion
to the leading idea of national progress.
They present thus far, the first example,
inthe history of Europe, of a great nation
perfecting its substitution of the national
authority, according to republican ideas,
although under monarchical forms,- for
an arbitrary despotism pre-existing for
centuries, without passing- through the
crisis of a - bloody and protracted revolu
tion. If they shall thus persevere to the
end, which may not now be far off, en
trusting the crown to a ruler who will
know how to prove himselt worthy of it,
and of their continued obedience under
the fundamental law which has just been
promulgated, the latter glory of that an

PRODUCTION OF PETROLEUM , .
The Titusville /braid,. of yesterday
contained its regular monthly report, of
the production and development in the
Pennsylvania Oil regions, for the month
ending May 31st. It asserts that under a
large falling off in the product of the
wells in the older districts, and but a
moderate degree of success in the devel
opment of new territory, there was a Ma
terial decrease during the period under
review, and the daily average, as shown
by the difference between the stocks at
the beginning and the close of the month
and the shipments meantime, was 10,15§
barrels, or about 900 barrels lesit than tha
daily average during April, and an in
crease of about 375 barrels over the aver
age for May. During May, last year, the
daily awerage was about 9,450 barrels.
The decrease in the old districts was
caused by the gradual failing of the welly
and by but few of the old wells havink
been torpedoed and recuscitated.
The Pleasantville district -shows a fall
ing off about two hundred and fifty bar
rels-per day. There were also marked
decreases at nearly all theother producing
The largest increase took place along
the Allegheny river south of Franklin,
where four large producing wells were
struck. 4CParker's Landing, in this dis
trict, four wells were struck during the
last week, which yielded an average of
twenty barrels each. On Cherry Tree

Three hundred and forty-five,new wells
are now being drilled in the regions, an
increase of thirteen from the first of May.
Development has not been attended with
much success, but fifteen wells producing
from fifteen to one hundred and fifty bar
rels per day being struck during the
month, and fifteen moils which fail to
produce in paying quantities. The stock
at the wells and in tankage underwent no
change from the qutintity on the first of
May, the production about equaling

tankage, there are 1385,450 barrels. am
prising the total stock held in the re one.
We must confess, 11 the figures fu sh
ed be correct, that the large deer of
nearly thirty*thousaad barrels per onth
is not encouraging. There are the here
who think some - large error has been
made, and that the May yield w as
large if not huger than that of pril.

This proposed corPoration is to bold and
administer the property and franchises
now held by the Hildson River, the New
York Central, the Buffalo and Erie, the
Lake Shore and eveland and Toledo,
the Michigan Soo t] ern and the Chicago
and Northwestern i Railroads, including
2,48 t: miles -of completed and equipped
railway, the value of which, on the gen
eral balance sheets of those companies
appears to be ;164,985,056; and is rep
resented by a stock capital of $129,594,862,
besides a vast debt secured by mortgages

these companies for the last year was
$44.820, 8 9 3 .

The other scheme, which is but' a sort
of counterpart and rival of the first, is
that which the Pennsylvania Railway
Company is said to be prosecuting. It
contemplates the concentration in the
hands of that corporation of the railways

the Pittsburgh, Fort Wayne and Chicago,
and the Chicago and Rock Island, besides
its own. This consolidation, which
seems already to be far advanced
towards completion, will unite 1,534.
miles of completed 'road, now represent
ed on the books of the companfes as of
the value of $122,110,164; estimated by a
stock capital of $67,540,762, besides mort
gage debt; and which earned last year in
all ;86,260,213. It will be observeil that,
if both plans are consummated, the
Pennsylvania route to Omaha will be
more than one hundred miles shorter '
than the New York route; and that the
whole capital of stock and debt represent
ing it' is more than twenty-five per bent:
less than that of the latter. •
If the earnings of last year be taken as
;the standard, and the present stock and
debt of all the roads remain nnwatered,
then, assuming that each of the oonsoll
dated companies will pay sixty per cent.
of the gross earnings in expenses, the
New 'York through line could pay seven
'per cent. on all its debt, and nine per
\cent. on its stock capital; and - the Penn
sylvania through line could pay the same
interest on its debt and sixteen per cent.
'on its stock capital. The stock , capital in
both cases is nominal, consisting in but '
a small part of money actually paid in to
build the roads, and chiefly of "water."
There is not one of the companies inclu
ded whole capital is less than twice the
cost of building its road; and the money
actually required to build and equip a'
first-class railway from this city to-Oma
ha even at the present enormous cost of
labori and materials, • could not exceed
aeventy.five millionsof dollars.
