On the 21st inst., the Alabama State con
vention adopted an ordinance which pro
vides that all the laws enacted by the legis
lature since the 11th of •J.in'hary, 1861, that
have not since been repealiAi; and which are
not in conflict with the constitution of the
United States ttjiil laws made in pursuance
thereof, or of the constitution of the State, be
ratified, and declared to be valid from their
respective dates: and shall remain in fall
force and effect until repealed according to
law; except, however, ail such laws as au
thorized the issue of bonds, treasury notes
and change bills by the state; and ail laws
which authorized the payment of all debts to
the State for moneys loaned to individuals
or corporations in Confederate uumey or
bonds, and the payment of dues and taxes to
the State in Confederate liond8,.or State
treasury notes, and all laws in relation to
The 2nd section of the skiue ordinance pro
vides that in coniputjingtlio time necessary to
create the bar of the statutes of limitations
and non-claims; the tint? elapsing between
the 11th day til ‘.raunsty, 1861, and the pass
age of this ordinance shati not he estimated.

iiance was yeas "
■ On the same day the ordinance in relation
to the abolition of slavery was adopted—

Be it ordained by the people of the State
of Alabama in convention assembled, That
as the institution of slavery has been des
troyed in the State - of Alabama, hereafter
-there shall be neither slavery nor involuntary

punishment of crime, wliereof the party shall
be duly convicted. *
And be it further .ordained, That the con-
stittition lie amended by striking out all pro
visions in relatiou to slaves and slavery.
And be it further ordained, That it shall
be the duty of the legislature at its next ses

The Great Fire at Constantinople.
The Ghihe publishes the following particu
lars respecting the great fire which broke
out in Stamhoui qn Tuesday night, Sept. 5 :
This terrible fire has been attended witli a
far more serious los : , of property than was
expected when the that telegram was sent to
London; aud it now funis out that no fewer
than 2,800 houses.''"-public buildings, and
places dedicated for ili vine service, have been
till tins mo l part lereled to tile ground.—
There are ccitnimy n hrtw e.-icvptions, where
it... -..m art staudjng, but the principal
mosque.- tire now nowhere to lie scrip The
accounts lor warded this (Friday! morning in
the <lifl'crem»H)sura'ttf'e companies in this city
are of a harrowing luriure. Some 25,500 per
sons had to rush Mi?of their habitations al
most naked Jo escape from the frames. It
would appeal that the conflagration com
menced in tDbuiidjng two'stories high. From
that part the flimie« spread with rapidity,
lighting Jn sime'erfta
and stores j>U the uii#^.vest side. The" scene
among the poor people, was pitiable iu tbe
The ineagermeans of contending with such
a lire were found perfectly inadequate, and
added to tlrnt the water supply’was equally in
sufficient. Explosions of a fearful character
followed in rapid succession, and it tvns feared
that, as the building came toppling doivu.ifttV-
eral men who were - assisting i find been
crushed to death. It was not, however, clearly
stated whether any lives had been us orifice^ 1
the excitement and confusion being so
great that the agents of the different
insurance olhces were’ unable to ascer
tain, but then: was strong ground for
supposing that a great loss of life-had taken
place. It was-found perfectly impractica
ble to find shelter for the whole of the
luimed-out people and their children, and
they had to content themselves by sleeping
iu fields and .gardens near.- When the last
telegram Was received, prayers were being
offered up to tilt Almighty to stop the rava
ges.of the tire. The principal portionsof the
house were composed in ii great measure of
timber, which of coarse will account for the
extraordinary spread of the flames. The fire
is now considered to have been fairly stop
ped at each point, and unless the wind should

squares, mosques,’arid government i mildings
were blazing away at the same time.

Material for the Future History of the
The Washington correspondent of the Chi
cago Tribune gives some interesting particu
lars in regard to the arrangements made and
in contemplation by tlie government for se
curing a full and reliable history of the war.
It will be remembered that, until last win
ter, every year a number ot military reports
were specially ordered to be printed by con
gress. General McClellan’s, General Rose-
crans’s, and a few other reports, were tliu4"
published at the public expense. During 1
the last congress, however, a resolution was'
passed putting a stop to tlie desultory pub-'
licatioDS, arid authorizing and directing the
secretary of war to have collected and print
ed, in proper form, all the papers and
documents of every description, of any his
toric character, having been collected in his
department from the tall of 1860'to tlie close
of the civil war. This congressional mandate,
will life faithfully acted upon, and will result
ill due course ol" time in the fullest possible
military history of the war. Of course tlie
compilation will embody only loyal material.
To carry this undertaking through in a cred
itable manner will require the continuous la
bors of a number of compliers for several
years; The public can form no idea of the
vastness of the material already piled away
and still pouring into the war department in
a steady stream. In a number of rooms the
walls are covered irom floor to ceiling with
.shelves, cases, aiid boxes, in which the vast
accumulations are stored away. Ol'course a
large portion of these records consists of ir
relevant matter not required for the military
history. To separate the “wheat from tlie
chaff" will be a most tedious,' protracted pro
The magnitude of the task of getting the
essential matter ready for publication may be
inferred from the' fact that it is the intention
to print every dispatch, every order, every
letter, every report, from generals command-
ing.down to the commanders of the small
est bodies. Of course, it is impossible at this
time to estimate the Dumber - of volumes to
which the work will swell. I would not be
surprised if it exceeded Jifty large sized Dnes.
The sub-reports of General McClellan’s pen
insular Campaign alone are said to contain
matter enough to’fill a dozen. The work of
collating, has beep progressing for some
months', but so far only the matter relating to
the events of the first six months of 1861 "has
[been pitIntcf shajie. 'The first volumes wiH
probably be printed during the coming
winter. As I stated, this proposed milita
ry history will be as fall as- it can.be made
with the material within the reach of tbe
war department. But there are indications
that tlie material relating to some of the
most interesting episodes, even at its com
mand, will be very incomplete. There, are

coi respondent of the Philadelrlhia Eiquirer,

“I had an opportunity of going over sever
al of the French ships, aiid murt say that I
have very little respect for them. Externally
they are the most repulsive specimens of na-
yal iireliitecfttre I ev.;rsaw,. If?.ne r di<Fnot
know what .they really were they juightr very
naturally be taken for old’ coal bulks. ’Even;
tlie Solferino and Magenta, and especially tno
Gloirc (the crack ship of the French navy)
are utterly devoid of gracefulness, and can
only, at best, be called huge floating batteries.
They are, indeed, ugly customers to look at,
but from all I can see or learn of them, I am
inclined to think that their bark is worse
than their bite. I do not betievefliaf one of
them could ever cross the Atlantic, unless in
<J protracted;, dead .calm ; and if once .there I
feel confident' that a shot from a' Dahlgreu
gun would perforate them as readily as if
made of pastebourd. The French navy must

Fashionable Feminine Gamesters.
Special Correspondence of Cincinnati Gazette.]
In one of,my recent letters I spoke of gam
bling as one' of the vices of our fashionable
women, and I have since learned that it is
practiced in r. - iV. more
than I had supposed? In Fifth Avenue, and
Fourteenth and Twenty-third streets, there
are often parties of ladies from which the op
posite sex are sternly excluded, where the fair
gamesters play untii dayli ght for large stakes; ft
and it not uhfrequently happens that when
their purses are depleted, they put up their
bracelets, necklaces and watches as wagers.
Some of the feminine gamesters lose heavily,
and the desperate shifts—ho allusion to their
wardrobes—to which thevareput to conceal
their losses and replace them, must be fear- -t"
Ayoiing woman, the daughter of one of -
our most opulent citizens, was pointed out to
me last Saturday in the Park, as a notorious
gambler, by one of her ownsex, who inform

since she went to Saratoga, in July, and made
her doting papa believe she had expended
the sum in dress and charity.
The young woman in question is very pret
ty, not more than twenty, and no one re
garding her apiritnelle race, her ’soft; Blue .
eyes, and gentle and reserved manner, would
imagine she had fallen, a victim to one of the
njost dangerous vices. One , might almcpt
apply to her the famous couplet that Pope
employs for his Belinda? ; ‘ -

Look on her face and yon’U forget them all.

1 Produce of Oil in Pennsylvania.—The
actual product of (ill in Pennsylvania is set
down'at 3,500,000 barrels of crude oil for the
year 1865. and worth, taking an average of
prices, $24,000,000 at the mouth o£ tlie wells.
The process of refining increases its value to
over $50,000,000, ior half as much as the
wheat ero}): The consuinption of this newly
discovered illuminator and lubricator is in
creasing very rapidly, both at home and
abroad. In 1862,J;urope consumed 10,000,-
000 of gallons, in 1864, the importation had
increased three hundred per cent., 30,000,000
of 'gallons Iieing consumed there, and
in 1866 it'is ^estimated that 90,000,000 will
be required'! -There is a brisk market
for it the world over—Asia, Africa, South
America, and Island of the seas are all
calling for" it. The best authorities ori
the subject, consider eighteen months the
life of an oil well. Some last longer than
this, but the great majority give out before
they are a year old. But experience shows
that oil may be struck and good yields ob
tained in Close proximity to exhausted wells."
Some,wells that refuse, under the most vigor
ous pumping, to yield a barrel more, are made
productive by boring them deeper. The
deepest wells in operation are about 500 to
000 feet. Scientific" men contend that tlie
greatest oil deposits underlie the earth’s
surface 1,000 to 1,200 feet. Considerable
oil is produced in Canada and West Virginia
but the produc t tis siuall compared with that
of Pennsylvania. • * ’’

Visit to the Bieth Place on Wash
ington, Lee and Others.—A correspond
ent of fhe Fredericksburg Ledger writes:
On Saturday last I paid a visit to the birth
place of Washington; yes, the immortal fa
ther of his country, Wakefield, for that is the
name of the place, is situated on Pope’s (not
Bridge’s, as Washington Irving erroneously
states it) creek. Not one stone is left upou
another of the building in which the father
of his country first saw the light of earth, and
even the stone erected on the place by the
late G. W. P. Custis to denote the spot, has
been destroyed or carried off. The identical
spot as pointed out by on^of the descend
ants, and probably the oldest of the family,
is now a com field. The land is owned by
Mr. Wilson who married a Miss Washington.
This estate has been in the Washington fam
ily for over two hundred years.
The family tomb is on Bridge’s creek, about
one half mile distant from Pope’s creek. It
is this, probably, which misled Mr. Irving in
starting that the birth spot was on Bridge’s
creek. Lack of time and the condition of
the weather prevented me from visiting the
birth spots of the other characters. The
house in which Monroe was bom and also
that in which Richard Henry Lee was bom
-are both gone, not a trace of them remains.
That-in which Robert E. Lee was bom, the
Stafford House is still standing in all ita
splendor. The legislature of Virginia had
prior to the war, appropriated a sum of
money to enclose the birth spot of Mr. Mon
roe, but for some unexplained reason it was
CanonsCaseof Matrimonial Inconstancy.
From the Lowell (Mass.) News.]
A married woriian, moving iu high circles,
left her home one evening last week, anti tak
ing a conveyance to a hotel in the rural dis
tricts, was soon joined by an unfaithful hus
band, who ought to have been at home tak
ing care of his own family instead of engag
ing in intimate companionship with those
outside of his own household. The couple
ordered a room together, representing them
selves as husband and-wifo. At a later hour
the same night. » carriage drove up to the
door of the hotel with another couple, who
engagaged lodgings in an adjoining chamber.
All passed off quietly until the next morning,
when the .two couples were summoned to tlie
breakfast table. There they met, when, lo
and behold, there was a mere change of part
ners, each gentleman bearing upon his arm
the wife of the other h Although there was
mutual blushing, mentai cursing and recrimi
nation, it .was deemed best, after a sober sec
ond thought, to let the matter rest as quiet
ly as possible; but the coincidence was too
remarkable a one to avoid the ear of the ever
