The Dcuatui ial VacancyCol.
Ork will not consent that his name
inay he used in connection with the "Senatorial
vacancy. The friends of other gentlemen,
however, are bringing them forward and laying
before tho public their rmnlifwiiiimnu (",-??

prominently Hon. J. I<. Manning, n gentleman
of ability and everyway acceptable to
the people of the State. As Chief Magistrate
of 'he. State, ho displayed great firmness and
' wisdom, and was deservedly the most popular
man that over retired from that office.
We should hail his election to the U. S. Senate

The Lawrence people lmvc given up to Gov.
Walker, and the force of law and order (tup- ^
ported by dragoons. Our correspondont j
states that tho pro-slavery party had given up
the contest for slavery beforo the arrival of
Gov. Walker?that tho country is not muted ,
for slaves?that Judge Elmoro's negroes had J
nv>si 01 mem neon frost-bitten during the win- 1
tor?that the cold winds from the Hooky R
Mountains, sweeping over the land, with no "
wood to keep tlie negroes as warm us they re- c
quiro. render the country unsuited to them.

who have just visited Kansas, that this infor- ?
mation is correct. t
From Europe. fi
Tho intelligence from Europe is iuipor- ^
tant. From India wo learn that a m unity
has brokcu out amongst the native troops,
and many of the British have fallen.
The lust advices from India represent the ..
revolt among the native troops as assuming f
a formidable aspect. The mutineers have
committed great atrooitiea, murdering and
brutally mutilating tha MHmpnono, nl?o c
toll into their hands in Meerut, of which e
the mutineers took possession, the inhabit- tl
ants committed for greater atrocities than a

Correspondence of the Baltimore Sun.
Washington, July 'l\.?The state of
parties in tho country at this timo is somewhat
confused. Tho old Whig party of
tho Northern States went over ohicfly to
the Republicans'or to. the Know-Nothings,
and tho remainder to tho Democrats, at tno
late Presidential election. In tho South
(.he Whigs fused with the Domocrats or tho
Know Nothings. There are signs everywhere
tlmt ?the last named organisation
cannot be maintained, and will ho abandoned.
Tho Know Nolhiuga of tho North
are, it appears, preparing.to go over, almost
in a mass, to the Republicans; The Whig
element of the party revolts at this fusion,
iiiul will go h ick to t!io Whig camp, where
nn independent few still keep their watch
Tho Heptibllcan party, brought together
under political excitement, finds its bondtf
very weak, nnd every future election will
show n dimunitiou of its strength. TliouHiinds

conservative men, arc well Satisfied with
the Walker-Kansas policy and disapprove
of the iusnhordinato and factious Spirit of
the Topeka men. The question is "whero

The Republican party of New York hare

local predominance, and no one will be surprised
at the next .State election to witufe?s
a political revolution.
Tho calculations which have been made
upon the Success of the Republicans in
1HG0 ore without any solid basis, for tho
party, instead of growing, has shown already
signs of decadence.
The August and fall elections for Congress,
in several Southern States, arc looked
to with some intercut, as indications ot tlio
fate of Americanism in that quarter. There

party will have tho organization of tho

[11 the -noxt Congress, neither North
Americanism nor South Americanism will
make much show ; hut it appears probable
that a new party?a Central American party?may
disclose itself?n party which
may advocate a more decided and rigorous
polioy in regard to our relations with Central
America, than that which the administration
may put forth. Ion.
Albany, N. Y., July 25.?-A littlo before
noon, 0110 of the most terrific rain, hail,
thunder and lightning storms ever experienced
here, visited us. State street. and
all the parajlcl strocts leading to tho river
were Hooded. State street looked like tho
rapids of Niagara.
The torrent tore up paving stones and
carried away boxe.< ami barrels, whirling
| tnetn towards the llutlxon like mnny
straws. Tho storm lasted ihreo (iu<irtcr? of
an hour, entirely suspending business nnd
travel. The stores nnd cellars on Beaver
and State streets, Maiden Lane, BroadwaJ,
etc., arc flooded, and "tin immense Amount
of dauingo has been done. TroJidwcll's iron
foundry on Beaver street suffered considernh!y.
There lias been a fjrent flood in the
neighborhood of Cuba. There are two bad
