A Tolerable Inanimate.

--If anybody is seriously distressed about division in Public sentiment over the Constitution of the Confederate States, we recommend them to study the following statement of the vote upon the question of its adoption:

Vote

States.TimeYeas.Nays.
AlabamaMarch 16, 1861875
GeorgiaMarch 18, 18611966
LouisianaMarch 21, 18611617
TexasMarch, 25, 1861682
MississippiMarch 30, 1861787

Two States, South Carolina and Florida, are yet to adopt the new Constitution.

It will be seen the total vote of the five States in Convention stands — for adoption 500, against it 21. We call that about as near unanimity as we can expect to attain in this mundane sphere.--Macon Telegraph.
