Mr. DRAKE said he did not like the provisions of the bi’J as reported on the subject. He did sot think the Individuals clcctcu as members of lie Convention should have It ia Hicir power to make as official expression of what they choose i..dcc;aie to be the wishes of the people, but that ihepcoolc themselves should, by their votes, di rectly declare their wishes on that subject.

Grent Damage to Property at New Al bnxiy—lubabltaxitM Drowned out of lltelr Honsrs, [From the New Albany ledger, March 12.] Contrary to all expectation, a fresh impetus was given to the great flood In the Ohio River last night and about II o'clock o. m., the rise commenced increasing in volume with a rapidity never before known at each a stage. From 11 o’clock last night until 12 m., to-day tbe rise was foil seventeen inches; and ot 1 o'clock tils afternoon the stage of water is but two incite* below the great flood of 1853, which was the high est water since 1847. In IM7 Ihc water reached half way np the hill to Mam street. It reached tbo upper corner ot the iraroc house oa the east side ol Slate street, be tween the Jeffersonville depot cud the comer of Main and Slate erects. To bring it up to (his point during the present flood will require an ad oitiona! rise ol about six feet. Aiieadr all the low grounds between the sonville Railroad and Water street are covered by water from two inches to eight feet in depth, water street, from Upper Thirteenth to Lower Eighth Is under water, except the ground on which the Ase manufactory, the GlassjWoiks. the inierican Font-dry. New Aluany Rolling Mills and the iioosicr Rolling Mill are hulk. These buildings arc still high and dry, hut If the water continues to rise during the nest twenty-four bourses fast as it bos done in the past twenty lonr, all Uie. : c establishments will be Hooded. On Upper Fifth street, where the ferry landing is located, the water is four to five feet deep, ana many leaded teams have had tbo goods in them damaged in crossing the water, in order to get on or os the ferry-boats. A large crowd has been assembled at this crossing during the day to wit ness the many funny scenes enacted there by the teamsters in making the passage. Nearly all the residences between the rail road and the river, from Upper Tenth to Pearl, ate flooded to a depth of from three Inches to six feel. The people who live in one-story houses 10 this district have nil been driven irom their residences, while those whose honses arc two- Btorlea high are living In the second stories. 1 lie damage that will ensne from this flood will be imrrcnse.and It Is feared that when the waters subside much sickness will be produced by per eons moving Into damp houses and living over ci llura Ailed witu water. As soon as the watcis abate rufficienUy every flooded house should ho ttoroogb'y cleansed and dried. and the water should be pumped irom the cellars and drained Bom the premises. In Falling Run bottom all the bouses are Inun dated, and in some of them the water reaches to the celling on the first floor. Hundreds of persons arc to-day engaged m moving, and if the riv-r contnuei* to rise, many more will be ousted from ll.cir dwellings by to-morrow. On the bottom lands, below the city, great damage Ha* been done the fencis and out-houses of the farmers. Hnn dieds have been driven from tbcxr houses by ine flood, and compelled to eeek refuge on the nigh grounds. At Fort'and one-half the town is under water. From this city to Cairo Ihc river spreads out like a vast sea. Millions ot dollars will bo re quired to make good the damage done. Nearly all the towns arc so Inundated that steamboats are not able to land; and thousands of bushels of craiu, stacked on the banks ol the river tor ship mint iouth, have been swept away or submerged ami ruined. ITie river, at th! o writing, 2 o’clock p. m.. Is risii-gatthc rate of one inch per hour, and, as heavy rains have been falling along thcupp*,r river, as far np ns Pilisnargh, since Saturday, we lear the flood will be increased over its present boundaries. All the foundries on Water street bare been compelled (o suspend operations by tbe flood, except the American. It, with the Now Albany rolling mills, will probably bare to succumb to morrow. VZBGZHZA. A Disastrous Fresh cl In tbe Appomat* tox Diver. (From the Petersburg Express, March B.} The Appomattox River, which for several days has been gradually rising in consequence of the recent heavy and continued rains, arose night be fore last, and during the day yesterday, to within thirty-one inches of the mark reached by the wa ter in the great fresbel of 1552. Tbe upper wharves are submerged, and the wa ter extends out to the embankment of City Point Railroad. The old brick warehouse below Poca hontas b idge Is ent otTfrom dry land, and one or more of the yards, nnd the wharf-way immediate ly below arc under water. Vessels tied lo the wharves are many yards onl trom land, and have to be icicbvu by small boats. On the oppo-ite side, the Chesterfield pike ia submerged waist deep, and only the upper planks of the fence which separates the pike from Gilliam's meadow are visible. The southern ahntment of Pocahontas bridge was partially washed awav by (he violence of tne current, and one-half of tbe rccond trestle of the bridge was carried off. By the prompt action of tbe Mayor and several of bis officers, the threatened abutment was saved from great dam age, ifiiot entire destruction. Rocks, gravel aud other material were thrown in in such quantities as to turn aside the force of the water. The bridge was considerably weakened by tbe oarttal loss of the trestle, and the flooring sank fully two inches in consequence. Officers were stationed at cither end to prevent more than one vehicle cross ing at a time. This was considered UeCCsgarv, because at the crossing of even of a single one, the timbers at this point were sensible ailectett. Imtuedlat- ly above and across the treaties of the bridge, at the southern end. lies the bull of the city’s plJe-ariver, partially submerged. It is pressed with great force aramst (he bridge, and ;e ipardizes the safety of that structure, its shears have been wast ed away and lost. The water was silt] rapidly rising yesterday evening, and It is feared it has not reached Its ticliht Thcbridce was groat dangt-r. Its loss wouldbc a calamity. Dlxtrcta at Richmond, fFiom the Richmond limes, March 8.1 Since twelve o’clock Wednesday night, most of the hydrants throughout tbc city have ciostd opera'ine, thcrebv causing incalculable incon veniences to families, printing offices aad manu factories. Large quantities of driftwood hive floated down the tails, while in several instances yesterday cows and hogs were hurried along by thv same lelentlnss current. The rations furnished by the city are issued (o thirteen hundred families. Each family util aver age lour persons, Urns making the total number of persons five thousand two hundred. Ot this number none have regular. and very few any employment, while two-thirds are prevented by age or sickness from woikingat all, even could employment be obtained. During the month of February rations wore la sued by ice United Stales Government to seven teen thousand difiercnt persons, of which number one thousand were white. None of these arew rations from tbc city supplies. Ibo above statements show the appalling fact tratoutof a population of about seventy thou sand souls, twenty-two thousand two hundred, ora wholly or partially dependent upon the chanty of the public. Of the whole number, six thousand two hundred are whites and the rest negroes. How many instances of d- stitinlon there arc unre ported we do not know, doubtless many. ARKANSAS.

In the opinion of eminent lawyers who hare examined the nuf.er; hot to set the question at rest, so far as verbal phrase ology could Indicate the same, the Company obtained a re-lssae ol their patents on the 3Sd of October. iyw, covering the ground In dispute In positive terms.

So fhr, therefore, as Mr. Meech or )U3 assigns attempt tome Pneumatic Pressure in a revolving or ratarr cylinder, tha set wIU be a direct Infringement on oar rights, and wc again aotll/ all persons concerned, that prosecution will Immediately follow their attempt* to me this mode of pressure la the manufacture ot paper. As to Oliver piocew of Mr. Meech we have at prtsoit nothing to say, being entirely satisHeJ bj our ova and the experience of others, that the processes we claim under our paicnfs are far superior to all others la um la this country or abroad. We invite the attention of an Paper Mannlhcrtrers to the practical working ot oor prcceis. Over ffcrty ol the tint mannlactarers in theKorthern States have purchased rights, and so far as thev have pat them la practical operation, they hare met with anvarjlnc success. An:ng others this using the process and whose mills arc most convenient of access, we refir ta the Niagara FallsPsper Company, and the Rochester Paper Company, of Rochester, K. T. In these nrnt. the process lias been in use on a large scale for over eight months.
