Afot dinner the Lord Mayor, in firing one of the toaotr aaid: We ore thia day honored with the praaence of the Prime Minn'rr of tbl* r?uolty and we, tu i iticeao of Loudon, frel It a proud privilege to b*?a ibe opportunity of aaaenibtiug i tubaaaadorr, noUemeu, abd the great commercial Interval* of the cooutrr in thie ball. The ooooalon upon which we hare met ie to rapreaa the conddenoe we hare In the nobleman at the bead of her Ma)*oty e government, who baa upon *o many ocraaion#. in timeo of groat diH culty, nobly etood forward, weathered the atom and brought affaire tu n autceenful iaauau I am aura I aha 11 he aepported when I aaoert, Woe beta Mnglnnd whan oar bwee aoldirra nod eat lure ate not thoroughly aupportod by the government when uovipertedly ralhd ou to take derteive iiitMUiN on any great emergrm-y I Tba noble Premier U H about to appeal to the nation la eapram lhair opinion on the to be right, mid which we, if placed in the name circumstances, should have deemed it oar duty to have pursutd. [Cheeie.] Well, uiy lord, under ordinary circumstances, wbeu It* House of Commons censures a government, that govern uieut has but one course to pursue?to retire, especially it it thinks (list the country at large shares the opinion pronounced by the House of Coimnous upou its conduct and policy. lint on the present occasion our conrictiou was very different. We did not believe that the country at large shared the opinion of the majority of the House ot Commons. I took the liberty of stating in tbe House of Commons tbal I was sure their verdict would not be ratified by the opiuion of tbe country, and the result has proved that our predictions were wr.ll founded, and that we were justified in entertaining that opinion. We hare even uow, even before the constituenciea of tbe country have bad un opportunity of recording their voUs, received numerous expressions ot opinion, coming from all parts of the United Kingdom, addresses signed by men of all ranks in society, and of all shades of opinion, by whig*, by tories, und by radicals, all thinking It right, when the interests of the country were affected, that party differences should be forgotten, and that the whole nation should bebiuded together in support of its honor and of Its dignity. [Cheers.] We knew our fellow-countrymen too well to doubt what would be the result of the appeal we were about to make to theui; and oven now, though the time when that appeal would practically be answered has not yet arrived, still we know that the heart of the country is sound, that its judgment is just, and that they will not endorse such censure as has been pronounced upon us by the House of Commons. [Cheera.J I am uot allowed, uiy Lord Mayor, to talk of coalilioui or of combinations, because tbey bare bten distinctly repudiated; but tbere was that accidental occurrence oi l. aders of parlies met in that lobby, and tbere wers in that lobby elements of a government which expected to succeed to power by making tbe humiliation and degradation of their countrv tbe stepping-stouo to office. [Loud and prolonged cbeers] We were told, and truly, that party lies are essential. Party ties and party spirit are csseutial to tbe working of tbe British constitution. There were party ties which were remembered on this occasion; but there were also party ties which were wholly forgotten. And those ties which were forgotten were the feelings which ought to animate alt parties hi supporting tbe diguity and honor of their country. [Cheers.] Now, what would be the logical and inevitable consequence of the vote which tbe House of Commons came to T They had agreed that tbe proceedings in China were unjustifiable ; as a consequence of thut vote they must have rent word to that Chinese barbarian, Yeb, that they were anxious to apologise to liiiu for the wrong which they had done. Tbey would have had to send from Woolwich some fresh cannon in lien ot those our sailors had rendered unserviceable ; they would have had to restoie the forts which our uaval forces have destroyed, and probably, in order to complete their aprflogy, tbey would have repaid the rewards given by the authorities of Cantou for the heads of the murdered Englishmen, and the expenses of the arson which bad been committed in tbe town by tbe Chinese. [Cheers and laughter.] I cannot envy tbe feeliuge of tbose men who could witness with calmness rewards offered for tbe beads of these British merchants by the Chinese authorities, or for murders, assassinations, and poisonings committed on our fellow-subjects, and who, instead of feeling tbeir blood boiling with indignation at sncb proceedings, would have bent the knee in abject submission to the barbarian by whom such atrocities were ordered to be committed. But we are told by others that we are guilty of making war, and that, while we contiuue to hold tbe direction of the pnblic affairs of this countrv, we shall always be embroiled with other nations. My lord, the course of our conduot is s sufficient refutation of that charge. Some of those who are now the loudest in their denunciation of us, and in proclaiming the doctrines of peace, are among those who concurred in engaging in that just and necessary war . . " . - .V _ i,;,.v. i WKU KUSSia?II1C UIIl KICTl la J u?? engaged during the laet forty years. These men, unable to carry on that war lo a successful conclusion, did not hesitate to abandon the task which we, in oonnexion with our glorious allies?the French aud the Sardinians? brought to an honorable and safe peace, [cheers;] aud that, too, upon conditions which these men had before announced would be unreasonable to ask and hopeless to obtain. [Cheers.J These men forgot to assist us in attaining that end, and they now accuse us of being ready and anxious to enter into war, while they forget that we hate been instrumental in obtaining peace. [Cheer*. J We, too, arc for peace?peace abroad and for progressive improvement at home, [cheers;] but the peace which we want is peace with honor, peace with safety, peace with the maintenance of our national rights, peace with security for our lellow-countrymeu abroad. [Cheers.] That I believe also is the opinion of the British nation; and that, so loug sa the BiitUh nation entertains that opinion, these are principles upon which the government ought to be conducted. So loug as they continue to lienor us with their confidence, so long we shall be proud of discharging the duly, however laborious and responsible it may I e, which our sovereign and the country may expect ue to perform. [Cheers.] If, however, a day should come when different doctrines should prevail, when [ware is to be accompanied by humiliation and degradation, then the pyun.ry uiuat look elsewhere?1 will not now say where, ouurM he hMadopt- C, anil n?? lo??r of hi* country look* with confidence to the rrauli. I therefor* propose to ton, "The health of Vieoouat Pwlmvrstoo, and may he long be (pared to guide the councils of our laudf" [Loud cheer*.] In reply to this compliment, Lord 1'aimer*too rote end addressed the company aa folio** . Often as it ha* been our g-tod fortune to partake of the splendid hospitality of the liliaros of Lot-doa, oaiUiuly never did it tall to the lot ot any adminlatration to reeeiv* tbeee testimonies of courtesy and good will upon a more important and interesting occasion than the present. We nrc uot, we feel convinced, deceiving uurat'lvee win u wc in terprel the manner in which tuy Lord Mayor baa Wo pleased to propose our health, and the mode in which it hue been drunk, ee a renewal of that expression of confidence and good will towards her Majesty * minister*, which I had the honor of receiving not many day* ago Irom hi* lordship, a* among the feelings and opinions ot the citiaen* ' ftf thin urMt iai>trnruilii. ftiheers.l We were, as it ia well known, not loug ago placed in > minority in tlic IJouac of Commons on question which involved censure upon her Majesty1! government I knew veiy well that some of those who honored ua with their general support looked upon tbat question only aa n sinijf pie expression of tbeir judgment of particular transactions which bad taken place at the antipodes some three months before, and persuaded themwlve* tbat in giving tbeir votes against the government on tbat occasion they were not expressing censure upon the administration; and tome ol those honorable gentlemen assured me, with the deepest sincerity, that they did not intend by that rote to withdraw from the government tbat general confidence which tbey bad hitherto confided to it. [Cheers.] liut the great majority of those who voted on that occasion knew very well the full political effect of the vote they' were about to give. The resolution was tbat the proceedings which the government bad appreved in China were unjustifiable, it the government had lu this case approved y of unjustifiable proceedings, tbsy bad undoubtedly followed a course which detirrved to incur the censure of Parliament aud of the country. We were persuaded, however, on the contrary, that those proceedings were necessary and rital. We felt that a great wrong had been inflicted on our country. We felt that our feilow-counlry men in a distant part of the globe liai been t xposcd to a series of insults, outrages, and atrocities which could not be pissed over in sileuce. We felt tbat the treati-rights of this conntry bad been broken, and that those locally charged with ilia defence of our interests in tbat quarter of the world were not only justified, but obliged to latent those outrages, as far at the power in their hands would enable them to do so. We fell that we should be betraying the trusts which the citizaus of the country had reposed in us if we had not suuroved of the proceedings w hit h wo thought Scheers and laughter J?for the instrument! of it! national gradation and disgrace. [Cheers.J My Lord Major and gentlemen, I again beg to assure jou that we feel proud, justly proud, of the noble support which the country has displayed towards us on the present occasion?a support which It will ever display whenever the national interests are at stake. But we feel deeply proud of being the Instrument of the national will; and, bo long as we feel that we are so backed up, we eball set at defiance the concurrence of uncoueerted and unconnected gentlemen, who, by a strange fatality, may find themselves united in a vote to turn out the governweut of the day. [Loud and prolonged cbecrm.] The Lord Mayor, in proposing another toast, said : Nations are like individuals, strengthened aud yphsld by the confidence felt In tbem, aud the uprightness with which they deal with others. The public relations of this country to olber States are of the highest importance to its dignity and welfare, whether viewed as regards the benefits yielded by commerce, the advantage of social intrroourss, or the maintenance of those relations of friendship by whlcb tbe progress of society and the improvement of mankind are gradually developed. England occupies a proud position in tbe eyes of tbe world, aud her foreign relations aro consequently placed at all limes In tbe bands of statesmen of great ability and high character. In tbe present ius'anee we have a nobleman cor.dueling our foreign relations who bears one of the great names of English history, and who has proved by his ability and energy in times of trial that he can maintain the reputation of a great title. [Cheers.] Byhiscare and aatchi'ulness difficult questions affecting tbe peace aud tranquility of Europe are dealt with, and I propose with peculiar satisfaction that the cordial expression of tbe feelings of this sseeinbly be offered to Lord Clarendon, with ' their beet wishes that be may long continue to administer I tbe foreign relations of this country so as to maintain its . honor and preserve the peace of world. [Loud cheers.] Tbe Karl of Clarendon, In responding to the toast, said : 1 am truly grateful to you, my Lord Mayor, for having coupled ray name with tbe toast which has just been proposed to this distinguished company. Tbe suoceos and permaneuce of our foreign all inner h involve considerations the importance of which it is impossible to overrate: und no one who shall fill the office I which 1 have the honor to bold tun fall to b? deeply sensible of tbr responsibility of the government of the coun| try for the manner in which the foreign policy of the , country, or, on the other bend, of the right of the country to inquiic whether the government, while upholding | the national honor, dignity, and interests of Kogland abroad, is carelul at the same time to respect the honor and dignity of other powers, end to do nothing which may weaken the esteem of our friends nor threaten tha se1 rurity of our foreign alliance. [Cheers.] This I trust has hten the feeling by which our policy ha? been guided, and we may confidently appeal to facts, ' notorious to all the world, whether the interests of Kng; land have beeu aaeaihd, whether her dignity has been I lowired, and whether her interests have sulTered. [Cheers ] 1 think that no one who has listened to the eloquent aud impressive address of the French ambassador on behalf of the ministers, of tbs friends aud allies of our sovereign, who are so nuuieroaslv represented on this occasion, amongst whom we havs the satisfaction of seeing the l'rraian ambassador, can entertain doubt na to the firmness of our foreign alliances. With respect to the Persian ambassador, he has arrived to present his credentials granted by hie own sovereign in anticipation of au event which bee been so happily realised, and by virtue of which the negotiations into which he was instructed to enter have terminated in a just and honorable peace, which has been so satisfactory to all classes of the country. [Cheers.] Hut, my lord, we gre told that our foreign policy is a turbulent and sggreteivc one. Although it may be difficult to prove a negative, I think that that policy is not a tuiliulent one which exhibits such extreme reluctauce to go to war, aud which within twelve mouths has led to the signature of two treaties of peace. [Cheers.] Nor can I think that that policy can l>e called aggressive which has suggested no territorial aggrandixeioeut, which has desired no eicluitrn advantages, and which has not ever been led by great surest a to demand anything beyond the objects 1 for which the war may have been undertaken. [Cheers.] At no period of our history has tin re been so great a muss of official corirspoudeuce connected with our foreign policy laid Iwfore Parliament as in the last three or four years ; and I appeal to any one whether, although we have firmly upheld those principles and opinions which we believe to he just?1 would appeal to any ooe whether we hare Mid or written anything to which the term ol "braggadocio" could justly be applied ? [Cheers.] Vet we are told again that we hare alienated our friend*, and that our alliance* abroad are not tuch aa you, my Lord Mayor, bare juat desired that they ahould be. We hare been la'ely told that we were teady to aacriGce al; liancee for worthlea* ohjnels We have heard the eloquent ' speech of the ambassador of the Ktuperor of the French upon tbe state of ouralltauce with France; and, let me add, If we hare had tiny differences with tho government of France, they have been those difference* of honest opinion | which may iakc place between Itieoda, and where these l differences bare existed we hare sought for and have found au honorable solution of thrui. [Cutter*.] We bare maintained an alliance io all i s integrity and all that cordiality which bai been beneficial to built counttlee, and with that mutual reepect and eatreui without which uo alliance or friendship, be It btiaeeu indiriduels or uations, can be either solid or enduring. [Cheers, j I must also obeerre, with iespial to that great country I with which we bare been lately at war, that all thoae diffi: culties which had arisen, tboae ditferrmej which were ; urged as difflcullit* to the final adjustment of peace, have now diMppeared, and hare all bteu atliied in an honor, able and satisfactory manner, and in a mode which 1 ; trust will learn mi ill baling behind, and that time? and a abort time, loo?will alone he necessary to knit together more flrmly the alliance between this country aud Russia. ! I will not rrnlure further lo tiespase on your lenience, J but I should like (to add that I belie re at uo time of late years has there existed so tbo oughly sound and wholesome a etata of feeiiog as that which rxiata at preaent be twaen the people of (bit country sua the United ,State*. I ; believe that tbi* fueling u tbarvd by the preicat government of the United Hiatal with the aamr tincerity by that of her Mejeety, and we have the advantage that that eminent man Who hai been called by the voice of hie countrymen to prralde over the deettnlee of the United .State* he* but recently left our kboree. He it on* who baa lived among ua, who ha* mixed among all claeea* of People, and who ha* been able to aacertain for hitnaelf the feeling* of i*apect felt toward* hi* country by all olaaaea of people in the Coiled Kingdom. I cannot help atao adverting to what Ml from ray right honorable friend with reepect to what ha* taken place In China. In the court* which her Majeaty't governuitni adopted they had only done that which any goeeriimrnt inuat have done under the a*me rlrcuuivtaoc.* who Mt that a deliberate iuault bad been offered to the Britieh flag, and if tbey kuew, * we did, that upon the protection ot the honor of our flag depended the eafvty of every britieh iuterent in China. [Cheer*.] My right honorable friend be* very juatly defended U?? character of Admiral .Sir Michael ? ) injur , and I would wiab al*o to add that Mir John Uowring ha* lieeo in my opiuion moat uujuatly treated in thi* matter. Kvery aperiee of filtiperation and abuse haa been poured upon him, and I atu convinced tbat Admiral Seymour, like every proud and honorable man, would not only dteire, but would claim to have n a hare in lb* teaponaibility of affaire with Sir John Soaring.

The nomination of Mr. Buchanan by the Olncinnati Convention wag hailed by the country aa an omen of good to the nation. Men who were not members of the democratic party felt a relief when it waa known that a atalesmun so accomplished and experienced was to be the standard-bearer of the great party of the people; and the unanimous acceptance and ratification of the nomination of the convention by the people, and the subsequent triumphant election of Mr. Buchanan, indicated the confidence of the people in Mr. Buchanan to meet the ciisis that bad been thrust upon the country. Initiated from early life in the affairs of the country? having walked up through all the departments oi public service from the lowest to the highest?in all places the just and upright man, the able and faithful public servant?discreet, wise, ready, and capable to meet ail exigencies incident to the position he filled?the Prctidentaeeuiud to have come to the chair of State "for ruch a time as this." The season before the election had been one of uuujual political agitation. The periodical election of President cf the United States must always be an eveut of surpassing interest. So noble is the elevation, so profound the institutions and principhs affected by the election of a new man to so high a place, that the national election cann>t pass without tome agitation. Probably, since the election of President JeffersoD, we have had no campaign that has been as virulent on the part of the opposition as the pas'. Sectionalism, goaded bjr designing men, who, like a hoide of barbarians, would willingly sack the city if they could divide the plunder, was rampant and defiant. Fanaticism, always a dangerous element in the hands of bad men, dec'aimed against the democratic party?maligned ils chief. It took its texts on the Sabbath out of the Tribune, and harangued the people with a "Gospel acoording to Horace Greeley. Prayer meetings were held in all New Kngland to pray that God would avert the terrible calamity threatened in the success of the democratic party and the election of James Bu' chanau ; and the fa'se issue was made that Fremont would free the slave, and Mr. Buchanan euslave the free. The party of the people triumphed, aud bore on to the high place of the nation "the man whom the people delighted to honor." The will of the people b. cime the potent voice which said to the winds and wave] of popular tumult and commotion "be still." "Immediately there was a great calm." All the acts of the Preeident have justified the wisdom which chose him from among the people, and the confidence and enthusiasm that ratified that choice in the ?lection. His cabinet commands the lespect aud confidence of the country for the character, ability, statesmanship, and integrity of its members ; and the responsible, delicate and often difficult task, of filling the important offices in the gift of the President, have promoted the harmony of the democratic party and the efficiency of the public service. Perhaps no appointment yet made by the President has Ki>an an nuivuraullv upn?ntfth1rt >i4 flint r*j inferred fin Hon. Hubert J. Walker an governor of Kaulas. Tbe nomination has been bailed by acclamation as one moat eminently "Gt | to be made," and tbe publication of Mr. Walker's teller of acceptance baa been received as joyfully, apparently, by the black republican! a! by tbe democratic party. Tbe long public service, the eminent ability, of Mr. Walker, bis wisdom, prudence, firmness, and unblencblng integrity, all point him out as tbe inwu whose talents and patience are needed in Kansas; and the personal sacrifices be makes in meeting this call of duly it ill long be lemembeied by bis countrymisn. Notwithstanding tbe valuable aid Kansas bar atfurded to the sectional men of tbe North, tbe employment she has given to men, not usually well paid, the " good enough Morgan" she bus proved till tbe close of tbe presidential election, these " freedom-shriekera" bate bad quite enough of this, we imagine. Tin re is danger ahead; men have raised spirits that they can now scarcely control?epii its that ir a abort time would rule or ruiu. Uut, tu accepting the appointment of Mr. Walker on tbe basis of bis published letter, the black republicans confess tbe folly and error of their opposition to the Kansas-Nebraska bill; for Mr. Walker proposes to do no more than carry out tbe principles of that bill, and allow tbe luna jiJt., settlers of that Territory to form snch a constitution as to Ibeta shall seem meet, acd to arrange their domestic matte s as may best suit themselves. This done, where are the ' wrongs of KansssT"?where her "bleeding body?"? wher* her crlee, lika " Abel's blood," going up from the ground for revenge T Agitation must cease?Kansas have quisl -ronft Ji ute be restored?and, under au able and wiae ruler, her land will be at peace and bur bordrrs filled with as inrrveeing and prosperous population, who will join all tbe land iu wiling tb? conilitutioo and upholding the hand* which faithfully administer Its beneficent provisions and lawa.

Til* CONNECTICUT ELECTION. The New York Evening Poet w, or affect* to lar, euUirly satisfied with the result of. the Connecticut election II can perceive no change in public feeling in that Stat*?uu reaction iu public sentiment?and although the figure* are moat pointed and significant, it is quite confident that the opposition, to all appearance, is now as strong in Connecticut as it was in the time of Presideut Pierce. We give below the Pual's own language : " Connecticut, therefore, is now where she was last November. tier people have no more confidence in the preeeut administration than they had in the last, and consider the reign of Buchanan as a continuation of that of Pieroe. In ordinary times the balance of parties in Connecticut is doubtful. A sort of see-saw in politics is generally going on; sometimes one party kieks the beam and sometimes the other. The polioy of the uieo now in power, manifested, as it li, by declarations which cannot be misunderstood, and by publio acts of equal significance, have fired for a time the vacillating public opinion of this State. The opposition, to all appearance, is now as strong in that State as it was in the time of Pierce." If the opposition is as strong now iu Connecticut as it was iu the time of Preeident Pierce, they certainly took a most singular method on Monday last of manifesting their slrenglb. They permitted the democrats to make large gaiua on theState ticket, large gsiue in both branches of the State legislatuie, and their strength was further manifested in suffering, iu the most obliging manner, their candidates for Congress to be defeated in the second and fourth districts. One more manifestation of this kind would give to the democracy complete and undisputed supremacy iu the State. If we are not greatly mistaken in the signs ol the time*, it will be presenUd at the next general eleclioo The Post forgets to tell its readers that at the late election in Connecticut there was a complete fusion of every element of opposition to the democratic party. The abo Iilionists, the know-nothings, the black republicans, the Maine-law men, the highir-law men, and the whole army of isinaticx a id Karuas-shriekers were arrayed under one banner and agaiost one party, the party of the Union, the constitution, and the equal rights of the States. Notwithstanding this fusion ? notwithstanding the recollection of pant defeats, and the consciousness of the large oddi which were against them?the democracy of Connecticut entered into the contest with confidence and enthusiasm, and with the determination uot to coucede or temporize with their enemies in any one article of their faith, 110 matter what temporary advantages were,likely to Ibllow conoeisions. The issues were broadly uad distinctly msde, and if the democracy of Connecticut have not met with full and complete success, they have the satisfaction ol knowing that they have secured the substantial fruits of a partial Tictory. The revolution commenced in Connecticut is, we ate firmly persuaded, destined to spread over the largest portion of New Eoglaud. The great body of the (Kiopie in that section of the Uniou will sooner or later shake otf the thraldom of an unscrupulous priesthood. Connecticut has already virtually severed the connexion between Church aud State, and it will not be long before her glorious exumpls will he followed by Maine, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island. Row long Massachusetts and Vermont will r main joined to their idols we Vill not venture to predict. The "sober second thought" of the people of New England is still at work, and it will bring forth a far more abundant harvest of patriotic votes than were secured in Connecticut on Monday last. Honest but misguided men now recall with astonishment, if not altrm, the exciting scenes ol last year, and in which they participated at the instigation f their politico-s-piritnal guides. While blinded by falsehood aud misrepresentation, carried away by the low influences ef sectional prejudice*, or stimulated to the vcrg? of insanity by tbe mad appeals of traitors an J demagogues they could we no impropriety in defecratiug the bouse o God to the bawst of purposes, or iu the ambassador 01 Christ leaving bis sacred desk to mingle in the tvild strife and debasing associations of the political arena. The elevation of Mr. Bochnnan to the presidency, and the general recognition by the people in nearly every section of the Union of the wisdom which bus thus far characterized hit counsels, and tbe patriotism which has thus far matkeii his acts, has partially opened their ey?s to the wicked machinations of their false prophets. The predictions of the "three thousand clergymen" of New England Lave not only not b-:eu fulfilled, but in several instances these political demagogues have not only shown themselves to be destitute of all claims to prophetic vision, but bave likewist shewn hy their acts that they were thoroughly and hopeleisly depruv.d la mind and bjdy. Several of these political priests are now fugitives from justice. Oue of ibcm i; now on trial iu Boston for an oflVnce the particulars o which are tos disgusting for publication. Is it auy wonder, then, tbat the fusionists of Connecticut "manifested their strength" in tbe mauner already noticed ' COLLECTION OF THE PUBLIC REVENUE. Tbe New York Journal of Commerce, in some remaiks in telalion to the collection of the public revenue, says : "W( can scarcely give a better definition of the true spirit it which our revenue laws should be adu inistered than b contained in tbe following circular from a former Secretary of the Treasury, well known as a distinguished southern statesman "The sovereign power of taxation is tbe soured Iron whence the most wide-spread wrongs, oppressions, end ruit of the people tl >w In all government*. The safeguard against abuse of the taxing power or government intendec bv our comtitution it in confiding that power to the Con greee. It would ill become the executive department to taki money from the pockete of the people by implication and con etruetire enlargement of the acta of the legialature. Whei the Congress, in the exercise of their power of taxation, hav< not spoken expressly or clearly, when the worde of the las learo room for rational doubt ai to a higher or lower rate o taxation, the deciaion of the executive officers should be it favor of the lower rate. In so doing the executive actior is certainly within the limit prescribed by tbo law. To taki the highest rate of taxation in such dubious cases wouli be hazarding a supplement to the legislative will, and an in road into the region of the legislative department. Buch i mode of construction by the executive department woulc not be lenient and remedial, but onerous and penal." Since he entered on the duties of his office, Secretary Cobb has, in three several decisions already published taken the liberal view above expressed. SEASONABLE ADVICE. The McMinnville (Tennessee) New Ere, alluding to th< pending canvass in that State, indulges in the following timely and sensible remarks: " We earnestly appeal to the 'unterrlfied' democracy o old Warren for a hearty response to the above call.

While human enterprise has been shortening the oceanic passage to California, the energy which has been expended in discovering tu improved overlaud route hue mut with equal soccers. The unprecedented emigration at row the plains iu 1849 and 1850 was la advance of auy preparation ou the part of the government, and consequently aut fered uuuibeilees obstacles in the want of deliuite explorations, aud In the unsubdued condition of the Indian?. The report of Staubury aud the uarrative of Parkuiau show . that even parties who started with the best preparations i encountered great difficulties and some dangers. Hut the hardships which emigrants endured would hardly be credited by the popular miud, nor have they been made known as a general thing, except iu the limited range of fire-side Uiled. The best overland route to California which was kuowu when the heaviest emigration occurred was by the way of Salt Lake and Carson's Valley. Since then the route ha* been shortened about two hundred and fifty miles by the explorations made by Mr. Wm. H. Nobles ; his principal discovery beiug that of the l'ass?bearing his name? through the Sierra Navsda. Col. Fremont's party bad previously passed over those mountains within from fire to fifteen miles of the pass, entirely unconscious, it appear?, of its existence. The adventure which resulted in this grnd^achieveiueiil was undertakeu by Mr. Nobles in 1850, on his individual responsibility, and at his own expense. It was an adventure which, considering all the circumstances, has hardly a parallel in pioneer h:story, and displayed a perseverance which common disasters could not battle. His discovery was not accidental. On the contrary, he was for eight months in the Sierra Nevada tuoun' tains, accompanied only by two inep, whom be pai l eight . dollars per day. Seuator Douglas bad predicted iu a speech at St. Louis, in 1849, that a route would some time be discovered across the Sierra Nevada, near the 41st degree of latitude; and we have been told that thie prediction stimulated tbe exertions of Mr. Nobles. It was in 1851 that he ' made this discovery, a knowledge of which was first given ' to the public through the columns of the Sau Francisco apprehension. As pro ectors of national interest and houor 1 no country can command its rights wiilio it them. Gun powder and steel are terrible agencies in the bands of ig noraut and mercenary men, and under the control of tyrants and demagogues. Armed nun, instigated by the sinister designs of unprincipled apostates and traitors, may overturn a govtrnm 'Ut in a day. And thus it is that Standing atiniee, w hen necessary to protect the ruleis, may be perverted to purposes of revolution. In the United States every man is a sovereign, a citizen, and a soldier when his country calls to arm'. The people enact flair own lane, and alter tbem at their will. I revolution is needed, it is accomplished quietly and peaceably by the ballot-box, and not by latteries and barricades in the streets of the metropolis. There is no cause for rebellion, no Geld for traitors in arms, and consequently uo need for au army to defeud the government from popular outbreaks. Hut even here it is indispensable that we should hare not ouly an orgauized military force for a nucleus of the citizen-soldiery, in lime of war, but a standing army, large enough to garrison our forts, defend our frontiers, aud diive out the hostile Indian tribe3. The territory of the United States is extending lapidiy westward and southward, onr population is multiplying almost incalculably, aud yet our army is coaGned within contracted limits, numbering not more than men enough to furnish a single fort, if war Bbould be proclaimed against us to-morrow. Wo would oot advocate a Tory Urge standing arniv, but at present we havo not soldiers enough enlisted, ail told, to make a much uiorc imposing parade tbau a regimental muster of the old Virginia militia. The number of West Point cadets should at least bj doubled ; for however brave, patriotic, sud loyal the legions we send into the Geld, it is indisputably established, ilia', to be (flfectlvo in proportion to their strength, tbey must be under the direoliou and authority of well-trained officers. An innumerable bos', without discipline, may be easily routed by a far iuievior force, arrayed and manoeuvred iu accordance with the aits of war. Woolwich and West Point belong as legitimately to Mars as Lowell and Manchester to manufactures, or the medical colleges of the world to the .iiiculapian science, s The Davy of the United States is much more inadequate ; and disproportionate than the army. Oar commerce extends to the furthest limits of navigation, aud our merf chantmen are increasing in numbers constantly. The land . is being forsaken for the sea more than at any previous pef riod in the history of tha world. And as commerce in creases, it if highly important that the means for its pro> tection should be increased in a corresponding ratio. In ) timea of pence, we should have armed vessels enough to be I always at hand, to be employed at the bidding of our rtpt resentatives abroad, for the protection of the interests and honor of the nation, when the occasion calls for forte; aud in time of war tbey are indispensable, not only to convey commerce, but to protect the coast from ravages of the en, amy. There is an illimitable Geld of science, too, always open and inviting for the employment of naval officers and gov' ernment vessels. Puget Sound, without the aid of the 1 navy in co-operation wnn mo military forces sgmnsi mo 1 Indiana, might have boon immortalized in a<td long a* I another Wyoming. The telegraph under the ocean, conjoining two continent! once unknown to each other, and r transmitting intelligence through an agency and with a . rapidity that almost staggers the understanding, will be a monument to the memory of lierryman and Brooke, aa well aa to the immortal Morae. Thus oirilizttion and acienoe, the arts of peace and war, go hand in hand together for the development of the resources of mind and matter. , A comparison of our commerce with that of England suggest* at once the propriety of no inconsiderable increase of the government vessels of the United Stales. It ' is to be hoped that effective effort* for a liberal enlarge' ment of both our army and nary will be witnessed within ' the next four years. The country baa tha means, and we i have little doubt that the administration will avail itatlf r of the opportunity, to itrengtben both arms of public proteclion and defence. tic-ram. to overcome ine increuuiuy or uaairorniane, uuu satisfy the country that his discover/ was not a fiction, he roturued from California hy the same route. Thus much has individual enterprise accomplished unaided by the patronage of the government or even those ordinary combinations of numbers and wealth without which such arduous and untried schemes are seldom undertaken.

OUR ARMY AND NAVY. An imrmueot both the ariuy-unl navy of the United States is eminently needed. Never very imputing in their number of men or guns, neither has kept pace with the progress of the country they are designed to defend. It is true, an immense standing army argues little for the fteedom of the people from whom it is drawn, or the lenity and legitimacy of the government which it protects. VVhete despots rule bayone s must bristle between the populace and the throne, and standing armies are employed as much, or more, fur the preservation of prace at home as to wage war with Daliooa abroad, or repel the attacks of foreign invaders. Among a republican people the government needs no physical force to sustain it Rut nliiluslaudiog t.rmies. considered only at conservators cf s ciety, are superfluous and idle institutions iu democratic countries, they are in all other res] ects as indispensable a3 under aDy other form ol government, llaviog to double duties to pei form in republics, tkeir site and streogth should, of course, be apportioned to the strictly military demands of the nation, with[ out refeienee to purpotes of polite; and, therefore, they are smaller in free than in monarchical countries. As elements of government, armies are to be watched with mistrust and AUklUULTUKAL IKFOUUATION.

The chief mover in the matter is the Hon. Marshall P.

Tto tune diet upou by the Massachusetts Suit Board is the 20lb, 21st, if J, and 23d of October.

Crops asd pruit.?Up to tbe 1st of April the proipseti in the western and northwestern Slates for good cro(iof wInset weie not very encouraging, especially in Illinois. The excessive Severity of the winter, unattended, as It wu by auy considerable quantity of snow, which might Laic protocted the young blades trom the froat, bad told ihuut giogly ou lbs crop in many parts of the State. In Sangamon county, tmtny fields, it is slid, had been eutirely destroyed, though, from tbe great breadth of ground sown, it was hoped that the yield will not fall considerably below an avirage. In McLean county a similar, if not worse, condition of things was reported. Some farmers bad lost their crops, and abandoned all hope of reapiug anything from their fields. In Marion county, further south, thing* wore a belter aspect. The crop was said to ba in a flourUbiug condition, and the prospect for the yield to be unusually large was quite promising. The fruit crop, it was expected, would he a rich though not u plenteous ona. Peaches 1m 1 been wholly killed io the hud in sjiou localities in the Ohio Valley, while in others very little damage was dune, and in a tew hardly any. The famed Valley of Pewee wan one of the favored (pots. In this, not only was there a fina project for poaches, but pears, .cherries, plums, grapes, apples, raspberries, strawberiies, gooseberries, and curruuts, all hid fair to bo abundant. In several sections of Kentucky and Tennessee, uot only had lh? fruit germ of the peach been destroyed, but the trees themselves had been killed to the ground. Take the Ohio Valley in its extent, however, and it was evidently the oplniou of the fruit-meu that there was a good prospect for a good crop. The following telegraphic despatches show that it dees not auswer to count too early on a fruit crop, aud that orchards, like every other purl of a farm, cannot always be relied upon: " Lot/'UVlUJC, April tt.?Despatches from Nashville My that three inches suow fell there yesterday. The thermometer, at 7 o'clock this morning, was 25 degrees in this city, Much damage to the corn has been occasioned, and the IVuit crop, it is feared, Is en'irely destroyed. Snow fell here nlso yesterday a'tcinoon, and the tobacco crop in Tennessee and Kentucky has doubtless been very seriously injured. "Cincinnati, April g.?The weather is cold aud cloudy.

We see every reason to believe tbst grape cullura is soon to become a productive branch ofour agricultural industry. The hilly slopes ol lb* Aileghnniei are evidently peculiarly adapted to tho growth of the vine, and the experiments that have been made have demonstrated that it rnsy be uude very profitable: " The Boonville (Me.) Observer learns from the vinegrowcisof Cooper that the grape is uninjured, and at moderate calculation there wilt be manufiicturtd frsm eight to tea thousand gallons of wine there, and in the immediate vicinity, this season. There were about five thousand gallons ef Catawba wine manufactured there in the fall of 1355, and the increased age and number of bearing vims will probably double tbat product. ' In the neighborhood uf Cbatanooga considerable attention is given to tbfl cultivation of tho Catawba grape It in aiti.t Siuiui-I J finvne inn la ultnlinir abnut fhirtr acres, and Cel. J. A. Whiteside and Col. Reese B. Brabsou three acres each. We hare heard of several other gentlemen in East and Middle Tennessee, who are paying much attention to this branch of culture. " Mr. Longworth, of Cincinnati, who is an experienced grape-grower, uigrs the raising ot seedlings from our best native grapes, without a cross with European grapes; thereby, be thinks, we shall equal their best table grapes, surpass their wine grapes, and supplv them with wine. The Catawba, first produced by Col. Murray, Buncombe, North Carolina, iu 1802, is rapidly extending over the whole South and West." Wool i;no.unu in run South.?A gentleman who bai been sugared in the wool-growing business iu Tennessee, and who has recently traversed northern Alabama, informs the Mobile Tribune that the raising of sheep iu that State would be more profitable than the culture of cotton. Thousands of acres, fit for nothing else but sheep pastures, could be bad for 12 J cents per acre. Suoaa in Illinois.?K. S. Baker, of Wabash county, Illinois, writes to the Belleville Advocate that be iball plant tweuly-flve acres with the Chinese sugar cane the present season. ' ! am convinced," he says, "ibat the Stats of Illinois will, in five year.-', make btr own tugar; and If I have luck I shall make this seasoa enough sugar, aud certainly enough molasses, to supply tuy little town. At all events I shall try." Mr. Krob, of Wabash county, who sjuis tune ago made a statement ot the result of bis experiment with the sngar-cane last year, offers to bet the ''sKrptical editor of the Charleston Courier" fivo hundred dollars that be will manufacture from one acre, "planted with tbe Cbiutse tern/, five hundred gallons of molasses, a superior ariicie to any raanuracturea in me euuiu, una soiu uj i?? merchants lu Coles county in 18 6 for seventy-five cent! per gallon ; and, further, that he will manufacture it et the coat of tea ceute per gallon. " FaIUIKHB TBI UHKATKST fKl'KtlllttANS IN TBI COUNT**.? The practical farmer is, says llie St Louis Republican, uodoutledly the greatest walking citizen in the ropublic. Our readers may be skeptical about this. But let any one of them follow thu track of a cultivator of one hundred acrrt of corn during the contiug summer, and he will travsl distant^ that, measured with a surveyor's chain, would scarcely fall shot I of five thousand miles. Tbeie is, in fact, befote the farmer who determines on planting one buudrtd acres of corn a joutuev of more than four thousand mile* Kvrry farmer who cultivates a thirty-acre held journey! twelve or fifteen bundled miles. There are more thsu two uiilesofrjwslne.il acre of corn planted four feet apart. (In au acre, four rods wide by forty long, there are silken and a hulf rows, euch one-eighth of a mile long ) Beckoning four fuirows to each row, there are eight miles of ploughing in breaking up an acre. It takes two miles of ploughing to lay ofT one way aud two miles the other, two mileH walking to drop, and'two miles hoeiug or plougbiof to cover, or eight miles travel to lay off and plant an sere Then there are four miles ot ploughing in cultivating tbi first time, going one round each row ; four miles the *" ond, six the third, where the middle is broken out, and "i the fourth, or twenty miles ploughing In cultivating one acre. Sometimes the corn is ploughed Irss than this; often It is ploughed more. So far we have thlrty-sli mil* of travel in the breaking up, planting, and cultivating one acre. Add to this six miles or more of walk in cutting and shocking, with re-planting, tanning out, Ac., Ac, and there are nearly fifty miles walking in every acreeultlvatw, or four or five thousand in one nncdred acres, as abort stated. What thousands and millions of miles are travelled on foot every season by our farmers! Such foot j?or' neys, of so many inilrs, across the continent would be chronicled as among the noticeable pedestrian feats of the times. The farmer is, in fact, the great pedestrian of the age, and he goes plough in hand. We have, howeve^ no ticed odIt hit walking along the rows aud furtows.
