The Concert To-mcht.?To-night will bo a
new Avatar In oar musical history?the tint ap
pearacce of another divinity in the world of Song.
It will be an occasion n irely unprecedented in
tbia country ; for even the divine Malibran asng to
comparatively small audiences and to a much more
imperfect musical taste. Jerny Lind cornea among
us in the maturity of her powers and the zenith of
her fame. The sp endid reception which has oeen
given her, no lets t-n account of her splendid be?
nevolence and lofty persona' character than her
transcendent genius, is an earnest of the prepos?
session with which her appearance to-night will be
baiic d. To justify all this inordinate expectation
?to fill up with i.a!pable truth the outlines drawn
by so many escited imaginations?will benoslight
achievement; but we believe Mdlle. Lind is equa'
I to it. The power of a name that, without actual
performance, can bring together six or seven thou?
sand people, at a cost of some 835,000 for tioket?
alone, must rest on a msrvelou* gift Indeed, to re?
tain its spell on the public mind. Nevertheless
we have no fear that the spell will be broken or
the gilt grow dim.
! Even leaving cut of view the expectations which
will be gathered within the space of Castle Oar
den this ever in//, the sight of the hall and the au?
dience will be woith at least half tho price of a
ticket. The improvements are advancing rapid'y,
and every thing will be completed in ample time
ftr this evening's performance. Mr. Barnum has
furnished tickets tf admission to ten Boston and flf
teen Philadelphia papers, every one of which has
signified its intention of being represented. There
were only about -100 promenade tickets sold, when
the sale was stopped, to prevent an inconvenient
crowd inside the walls.
To mcrrow morning the tickets for the Concert
of ifriday night, will be sold at public auction, in
the Garden.
We are authorized to announce the following
regulatiors for the goven ment of carriages and
hacks, which are made to prevent confusion this
evening at Castle Garden. All oarriages will en?
ter the large gate at the corner of State street and
Whitehall, and pass out through t! e gate in Bat?
tery Place, at the.hesd of Greenwich street. At
the close of the Concert the carriages will take up
their company in precisely the same order. When
a carriage arrives at the ent-arce gate at the end
oi the bridge the names of parties will be called
out by the Inspector of Ha<ks, and if not present
the carriage will pass on and come around again in
Persons who come in carriages are advised to
remain a few minutes, in or 'er to lettheother por.
tion of the audience pass out first, and those who
are not in carriages will have the kindness to pass
out without delay as so;n as the Concert is finish?
ed. Particular attention to these instructions will
prevent much confasion and materially expedite
tbe egress ar.d comf.-rt of the audience.
Two flo?KS at Keheausal.-?The second re.
hearsai of to-night's grand concert came off yester
day at Castle Garden. About 100 persons were
present, principally musical amateurs and mem?
bers of tbe Press. The Orchestra is composed of
excellent material, and with a little more of Mr.
Benedict's driding, will eiual, if not surpass, the
beat wo have ever had in this country. The Over
tares to " Oboron" and "The Crusades" gave
ample evidecc; of its capacity. Of tho vocalists,
Belletti appeared first and sang the " Sorgele"
from Rossini's Maometlo Secondo. All present
were surprised and delighted with the richness
and purity of his voice and the remarkable finish
and gr c- of his execution. He is, unquestionably
the most satisfactory barytone who has yet visited
us. Molie. Lirid was about to commence Costa
Diva when tho first of the hundred guns fired for
California, New-Mexic\ Texas and the Ten Mil.
lions, thundered just outside the Castle. The Or
obettra la d d-. w.i their instruments and the ex?
pectant visit rs were obliged to wait fcalf an hour,
until patriotism could be satisfied. When, at last,
the strain was resumed, Mdile. Lii d again came for?
ward. She was very pale, and seemed to exercise
a stroig efilrt to < onamen e the first notes. But
the sound of her own voice ri fissured her, and los?
ing herself in the inspiration of the music, she took
her hearers with her into a region of wonder and
delight, where cold, unsympathetic criticism was
i thing impossible. Her voice is electrical in its
effect, and we do no: think there is an audience in
the nation capable of hearing it unmoved.
After what we have said yerterday concerning
her performance, and what expectation* we have
still reserved for this evening, it is hardly necessary
to foresta'l public curiosity by a further account of
whatWf have heard. It will b? enough to say,
that the favored few who heard her yesterday
were, to use a Southern expres ion, completoly
" enthused," and that there is no difference of
opinion among 1 hem in regard to the effect on the
grand audience that assembles to-nig .:.
The Democracy aud the Slavery Q.uestio5.
?The meeting of the Tammanyitea last evening
resulted in the accomplishment of nothing, and
they adjourned to meet again this evening. It is
not the Ui.lon which is in danger now but the
party, their thunder being almost gone. By to.
n ght they will learn the action of the Syracuse
Convention on the contested seats in this City, and
tha "Democratic Republican General Committee"
will then see whether their proceedings are con?
sidered " regular " at " Headquarters " or not.
Movements are already making for the reorganiza?
tion of t^e " Democratic party in a way to secure
tbe confidence of all true Democrats." 8o the
calls say. These organizations are to be formed in
all the Wards, and are to be styled " The Demo
I cratic Union of ?-Ward," and the several As?
sociations will contain the names and residences
of all the legal " Democratic " voters of the Ward.
Fraudulent voting can thus be prevented, which
will be a severe blow to the Committees of Tam?
many, and the Ward Committees which have b?on
recently " legalized " by it, awl carried by rowdy

should consent to a charge of the location. It is
not improbable, therefore, that the regular session
of this year will be prevented at Ciccinnati by the
intentional absence cf members. Thus far they

The Present Condition and Haler? Franc?.
Constaniihopi.e, Aug. 6, I860.
To Vm Zdltort of The Tribun*:
Before I write a more acoorata aooount of the
real condition of affairs in this country, and before
I examinehow much the Moslem law on the family,
or fit least the Mustalman's law respecting the ties
between man and woman, parents and children, is
to bo regarded as the cause of that condition, I
think it better to turn back ence moro to the Euro
pean world, and to draw a few brief sketches of
tho actual state of its different races and nations
placed as they are under a heavy yoke which
weighs them more than ever to tho dust. Id so
doing I shnl! have to trace pictures which (so, you,
the happy inhabitants of a free and well regulated
country, may appear false or exaggerate', but
which are, nevertheless, perfectly correot.
And to begin with the nation leading or pre?
tending to lead all others on the way of progress
and liberty; let us say that Fratco has never been
worse nor mere tyrannically ruled than now. Nev?
er, from tho dreaded Committee of Public Safety
till this day, existed in Franco a rule so disdainful
of all political and national right or fooling as the
brutal and clumsy government of the Napoleonia
President. You are well awaro of {he ?intecedent?
of the man. His obstinate endeavors to Ovorthro?*
the established government of Louis Philippe, and
his repeated appeals to the national choice between
that King and bis own pretensions, bad impressed
the multitude with a strong belief that, whatever
might be the Prince's faults, be would strictly res.
pect the popular will and wo ill never revolt
'gainst it. And when, arter the February revolu?
tion, he oarae out rolterating' *-hat appeal, and offer.
iDg himself to the national choLe, it was that very
belief that made him acceptable to a greater pari
of the French people. The election was after ail
a very difficult business. General Cavaignac rep?
resented at that period the Moderate Republicans,
or in other words the incipient reaction. Ledru
Kollin was accused of pecuniary transactions unlit,
jing him for the Chief Magistracy of the country;
whilst Prince Louis Napoleon represented nothing
at tho time, but a great, cherished, and glorious
name, arid unlimited respect for the popular will.
True it is, moreover, that the various partisans of
monarchy had, previous to their adopting him, as?
certained his real intentions, so that their sympa?
thies were bestowed npon him, es the future des?
troyer of the Republic, the arm that was to over,
throw tbe barrier which kept out from France and
tbe Tuileries the young Count of Pari?, or the
Count of Ohambord.
Words are unable to express the childish delight
with which the President saw himself honored
with ihe apparent regard of the Ministers of tho old
regime. It wag the rapture cf the school-boy gel
ting suddenly on equal footing with his own mas
tors, gentlemen most dreaded, who had flogged him
only a fortnight before. There was he, the Prince
President, a very embodiement of power 1 All bis
rolics were then forgott.n. Those who had laughed
at him, shrugged their shoulders, shook their beads
at him, who had long given bim up as past all re?
demption from folly and absurdity, those very judges
who feared to inflict upon him any severe chas?
tisement, lest compaaaioD ahculd get the better of
