Houston Telegraph writes from Ellis connty
on 2Sth nit.:
The wheat crop vat never more flittering than al

ratification of the Permanent Coastltotlon by the
Convention. The debate rat psrllelpltd la by.
many members. Messrs. Sheaan Branch Crorki
and others spoke against the resolutions express-
ing the opinion that it was an act of usurpation on
ihe part of the Contention to ratify that Constitu-
tion; that It should have been referred to the piii-
pla. It was admitted however on all sides that the
Permanent Constitution was free from all objections
and that the changes made In ths old Federal Con-

We present in cxUUo the remarks before

Judge Campbell of Galveston said that the ques-

nower to aet. every centlemiu conceding that tha
right to accept' and approve the Constitution was
clearly accorded. It was a jqaeatlon of expediency
merely ana la bis Judgment every eonraersuoa or
expediency demanded the prompt and Immediate
adoption of the Constitution. Wera.tlie Convention
not to adopt this course they would leave Incom-
plete the structure; they hay's for-'weeks beea engag-
ed In erecting; the creation of a permanent tie w tn
the other seceded Slates was the cap stone of the
great political edifice. Were he to cast any other
vote than one sustaining sncnndltlonal approval be
should expect to hear the rebuke ofthe constituency

J. A. Boole of New York oily has been awar
ded tbe contract for tha construction of forty

eracy. The 17. T. Leader has the following
details of the matter :
These boats are to be seventy feat Use bv twenty-
two wide and five feet deep Uoublcplanked and
with sides of ths regular naval thickness. Etch

two thirty-four pound carronad'S. They ara an-
chored ta Ike months of the .Mississippi and vartoua
exposed points up. the river thus guarding alike
against attack from the sea or a descent from ths .
northwestern Sutec. With their full snaamentou.
hoard they will draw thirty-six leches of water thus
presenting but a very narrow target to tha enemy.
The plan of these boats as a cheap substitute for si
Southern navy. Is due to Commander Hartatelo aod
they are to be completed f.r S3200 each the arma-
ments to be fqruei by tbe Richmond foundry.

tives at Frankfort on the 26 tb ult.
Ha believed the South right and the North wrong
In the controversy which has given rise to the pres-
ent gloomy state of affairs lie had no confidence la
politicians but thought If a baste of settlement
could be brought before the people ot the North
they would eodose It. Us waa strongly and decided-
ly against coercion and In favor of letting the sece-
ded Statei try tbetrexperlment In peace. He be-
lieved ths experiment would fall and they would
yet come back to their allegiance. Any attempt
at coercion ho said would destroy at ones and for-
ever all hopes ot reconstruction. Ua was la favor
of'Xeaiucky remaining for the present wth the UtH
Ion but adfaltted that there might be soma great
