Maine Law Vole;
On Monday, the 20th ult., the people
of Michigan voted on the Liauor Law
question. The enactment is similar in
its provisions to the 'Maine Law,' and a
proviso was contained in it that it should
be submitted to a vote of the people, to
be approved or rejected by them. From
the returns which we see published, we
judge that it has been carried by at least
25,000 majority many counties voting
for it in mass, and even the city of Detroit,
giving 300 majority for it.

intelligence that the insurgents were sub

There was also in circulation at the

information, however, was too vague to

to decide whether Shanghae was 'aban

by the insurgents. The most probable
version seems to us the latter or that

The Hot Week in June.
For five days, commencing on tho 19th,
the weather was truly exhausting and op
pressive. Many lives have been lost, a
larger number, it is probable, from a
similar cause, than we have ever before
been called upon to chronicle. On Thurs

thereafter there was a decided change for
the better. The range of the thermome

The Beginning of the End.
Gen. Scott was defeated last fall, main
ly -by the cry of the Locofocos that he
would appoint Mr. Seward and other free
soilers to office, and put down the agita
tion of the slave question was the object
of the silver gray leaders who opposed
and defeated Scott. Gen. Pierce was
held up as the Union Compromise can
didate pledged to sustain both and
show no favor to Disunionists, north or
south. The Pierce men denounced Sew
ard and all who opposed the Compromise
measures, as enemies of their country.
Well, three months of the Pierce reign
hag passed. That shows that his pledges
have been violated that rampant Dis
unionists, north and south, have been
awarded, to the exclusion of Union and
Compromise men. Indeed his favors have
been generally extended to the advocates
of the Nashville and Buffalo Conventions.
This fact has become so notorious that
prominent Locofoco editors and individu
als, all over the country, aro denouncing
him. The Union men of the South, gen
erally, the New York Democrat and
others north, join in denouncing his course.
Even in New Hampshire, at a State Con
vention, Edmund Burke, late Commis
sioner of Patents, and editor of the Union
at Washington, offered a resolution cen
suring him for having appointed Free
Soilers and Secessionist o office, to the
neglect of the National men of the p'arty.
Even in the New York Legislature, Sen
ator Coolcy, a leading Locofoco, declared
war against him for holding Martin and
John Van Buren in regard, without ask
ing pardon for defeating Cass in 1848.
This is the beginning of the end of three
months, but not the end of four years.

The iate Robbery.
We published a few weeks since a fattier
from Mr. Merriman, late Representative from
this county, explaining his position, arid sus
taining the charges made by him against tire
Canal Commissioners. But we come now to
the figures and facts. Before the Legislature,
and in his letter, he charges the Canal Board
with fraud, and suys that they 'defrauded the
Taxpayers out of $150,000 ih letting 2G
miles of grading on the New Portage Rail
road, by letting the work to favorites, when
as good men as are in the State bid for the
work that much lower.' It will be remem
bered that a locofoco committee white-washed
the conduct of the Canal Board, notwith
standing the evidence produced against them
was of the most conclusive kind. She an
nexed statement of a portion of the lettings,
on the work referred to, with the amounts
at which the different sections were let, and
the bids thereon, will show the Tax Payers
of the State that the charges preferred by
Mr. Merriman were too true. These figures
are taken from the published testimony taken
before a committee of investigation, and from
a part of the Legislative Record. Read and

Coup do Solid or Sun Stroke.
A correspondent of the New York
Times , gives a few precautionary hints
upon this subject, which are important,
lie says,. Coupde Soliel is caused by the di
rect action of the sun's rays upon the head,
producing severe congestion of the brain,
or effusions of blood in and over its sub
stance. The patient, when attacked, falls
or drops suddenly, deprived of sense and
motion, and frequently dies on tbe spot.
Sometimes, however, reaction takes place,
ending in inflamation of the brain. All
persons exposed to the influences of tho
sun in hot weather, are, of course, liable
to an attack of coup de sol tel. But from
a variety of circumstance?, both in rela
tion to the constitutional habits of individ
uals and extraneous influences, some peo
ple are more liable to it than others. Tho
principal predisposing causes, or circum
stances which predispose to this affection,
lie in that peculiar conformation of the
body, consisting in a large head, full face,
florid complexion, short, thick neck. broad
shoulders, ample chest, globular abdo
men, short stature, inclined to plethora,
and obesity. Such individuals are often
subject to bleeding from the nose, and to
sensations, of weight and fullness in tho
head, particularly when, or after stooping
or making unusual body exertion. When
in bed they find it necessary to have their
heads elevated, as when low they aro
restless: and their breathing more difficult.
Individuals of this description, whose vo
cations exposo them to the sun, should
most assuredly change their business in
summer to in-door work.
The symptoms of its approach differ
somewhat. In some cases its attack is
very sudden, with slight indications, if
