BUSINESS AT MARIETTA.—The York Republican says; The recent freshet on the Susquehanna and its tributaries has brot' down a large number of-timber rafts—About four hundred and fifty ; also some seventy fice of lumber. The manufacturers from the up country ask from $2O to $22 per 1,000 for the for6er,and $22 to $24 for the latter. The terms being considered rather high, of course purchasers are holding off for a fall. The new Texas Constitution fixes the Goy ernoes term of office at four years instead of two ; and the salary at $4,000 instead of $2,- 000. ; It also gives the Legislature power to, guarantee the bonds of railroads for the pur chase of Iron. The article abolishing slavery says "Africans and, their descendants , shall be protected in their rights of persons nod prop erty 'by appropriate legislation ; they shall havelthe right to contract and be contracted with; to sue and bey sued ; and to acquir l e, hold%and transmit property ; and all criminal prosecutions for like offenses against the white race, and they shall be subject to like penal ties." The Constitution Will be submitted. to the people for their acceptance or rejection on the .fourth Monday in June. It will be ob served that in its wording and scope the Texas Constitution is nearly identical with the Civil Rights act. ey BO ungrate Tho secretary of the Treasury has de cided that farmers aro not required,in making their income returns, to include the value of their farm prodncts consumed by themselves and their families.

John Tyler. .4 By James K. Polk. . . 3 By James Buchanan. ' 1 By Andrew Johnson ; i 2 larThe Democratie'organs are predicting with great unanimity, that if Cohgress does not give way to the President and concede to him the functions of the Executive,Legislative and Judicial power, there will be civil war. In the same spirit the slaveholders constantly asserted, while they were preparing for the per petration of the crime, that if Congress did not accord to slavery more than constitutional rights, there would be a rebellion. That re bellion did take place and it was crushed.— Now let us ask whether the Democracy,while they are claiming more than constitutional power for the President, are, like the slave holders, preparing for rebellion? if they are, like the sisveholders, the Democracy will be crushed. That's all. I How Mtnnons ARE Mxos.—Probably few of our readers have a very clear idea how the huge mirrors that are so fashionable and ex penSive nre made. The plate-glass which conies from France or German is first polished by means of rouge' brushes; next a bag con taining the common potato, reduced by a pul zerizing process to nu almost impalpable pow der is applied to the glass, the potato dust e'staping the meshes of the bag; then a plate fotf is spread upon a setting bed of marble, and on it is placed tue prepared quicksilver ; the, glass is then laid pn the top of this and pressed down with heavy weights. Here it remains about twenty-four hours, when it is examined, and if found free from flaws, is ready for -use. I ' Fidoenss Movrinten.—There seems to be no end to "plagues!' A letter from Genoa announces that the birds are dying off by 1 thousands, owing to miasmakic vapors 111 the atmosphere. They fall exhausted, and it is found that the roots of their feathers are de cayed.. An epidemic in the oyster beds of the coast of France has raised the price of these bivalves mere than a third, and late news from England gives reason to fear that the sheep have been attacked with s similar mal ady to that which has destroyed cattle. More than a hundred thousand head of cattle were bought in France' last week for exportation to. England, and there is every reason to an ticipate a very great rise in the price of butcher's meat. Since the fright about trichime, the charculiers (the pork butchers) Ido not sell half their usual quantity of swine flesh. The government has done, and is doing, all in its power to keep down the panic, but cannot succeed. Pork is decidedly )at a discount! State Currency. It seems very probable that before long the notes of the State Banks will go out of circu lation. The act of Congress of March 3d, directs that they shall be taxed ten per cent, if in circulation after the first of July next. It is therefore necessary that they should be redeemed before that time, and the National Banks, which must suffer the tax if they hold the notes at the date mentioned, are relieving themselves of their liability by throwing out the State Bank notes, or by' receiving them at a small discount sufficient to pay for the cost of sending them home for redemption. This action will soon, hurry them out of sight, and there will be no currency in circulation but greenbacks and the notes of the National • Banks. '1 Tan Filarial nt Msxrco.—The lest arrivals from Europe confirm previoui reports that Nr.seoxcilir has agreed to withdraw his troops from ; but the process will be so dila tory , its to give Slazimimax all the benefity3f tlieralas long as he can hope to maintain his throe'? theie.
