Our Diplomatic ?yntcui.
In diplomacy, the United States are behind
every prominent European government. There is
scarcely a petty German principality that is not
more ably represented near foreign governments.
Our diplomatic system is all wrong?radically defective,
and defective in almost every branch and
detail. There is no lack of diplomatic talent in
the country; on the contrary, there is a superabundance
of it; but the system which at present
prevails in the selection of men to represent us at
the seats of foreign governments precludes the
employment of this talent, and nothing could be
devised better calculated to make us despised
abroad. This system, framed when the Union
consisted of but thirteen States, is continued now
that it consists of thirty, and is as unsuitable to
our present growth, as would be tne swatning
clothes of an infant to a man of mature age. I1
was framed, too, at a time when we only began to
learn the rudiments of republicanism; when we
had net yet unlearned the errors and prejudices of
monarclnsm and aristocracy; and is one of the
few features in our institutions which have not
kept pace with the advancing spirit of democracy.
"When this government was founded, there was no
such thing in exi&tence as republican diplomacy;
and the consequence was, that we were forced to
adopt a system fashioned on the model ol the
miserable, hackneyed, knavish aristocracies of
benighted Europe?benighted, not in arts and
sciences, but in regard to ihe relations that ought
to exist between the governors and the governed
Accordingly, our present diplomatic system is an
utter anomaly, and a sad delect in our otherwise
glorious institutions.
It is true that to this evil should be applied a
thorough, sweeping, and radical cure ; and fur
effecting this cure, there is no time more appropriate
than that which approaches, when, by the
solemn judgment of the American people, we are
about to witness a change of rulers.
We have three species of diplomatic representatives?the
minister plenipotentiary, at a salary of
nine thousand dollars; the minister resident, at a
alary of six thousand ; and the charge u'ajfaircs,
at a salary of lour thousand live hundred. (The
commissioner is a special officer, and may rank as
either minister plenipotentiary, minister resident,
or charge, as occasion may require.) The charge
d'affairct is an anomalous rank, and should be
totally abolished, except in Us original use, which
?u altogether special and temporary. It was,
originally, an officer delegated by the minuter to
act for him in hi? absence. Our ministers plenipotentiary'
are recre ministers resident. They
have not, and ought not to have, full powers. They
cannot close any negotiation without consulting
their government, nor can they act at all, in any
weighty affair, on their own responsibility. The
minister resident is vested with as much power an
the minister plenipotentiary, the only difference
being in the amount oi salary. The same may be
aid of the chargt d'affaires.
We would have the latter grade abolished
altogether, as it exists at present, and would have
three species of diplomatic agency instituted?the
ambassador, or' minister plenipotentiary, a special
office, to be filled whenever the settlement
oi gme questions requires an extraordinary
iiiirc i vii , uir (CPiurui JiiiiiJ.-Mn, u |?r i iiiaiiru i jn??i
tion, to be substituted 111 eveiy case where there
arc at present lull missions; and consnlf general,
to be invented with ordinary diplomatic [towers
and to reside wherever a lull mission is unneces
sary The salary ot an ambassador should be a
leai t fiiteen thousand dollars; of a minister resi
dent, twelve; and ol a consul general, six. Thus,
there should be but two permanent missions, that
o) the minister resident, and of the consul general.
The present salaries of our diplomatic agents
ere too -rnall. No man < an aflord to accept a
mission to nnyof the larger States of Karopi* who
is not eutlicienil) wealthy to spend at least double
the amount oi his salary. J? fans and Loudon,
especially, our ministers are compelled to maintain
a lavish expenditure. It is too bad that, for
the Mike of a few thousand dcllars, the dignity of
this nation should be lowered abroad, and that
the reprebentatives ot every small State in Kurope
should be enabled to take precedence ot our
l*ut what tends more than all to jeo;.ard our
rei'Utntioii abroad, is the mode of electing our
representatives. Our ministers are generally appoiuted
because oi their political frvices to the
party in power, and not fr. m any special apititude
Jor the inistion, or any experience or talent in
diplomatic afluirs. 1 his is all wrong. We are a
present ditgratfd by tin? cyan m, and it would he
well chat aeveralol our iepr<*?entatives should he re'
placed by mm ?ho are somewhat conversant, at
least, with the common tudiments of diplomacy.
This should be one of the flret duties of the incoming
administration Our diplomatic system requires
a thorough reorganisation, and we hope, ere long,
to ??- tint if organization ellttua.

The annexed items are not, strictly speaking,
all new ; but they give some items of importance,
more in detail than before published.
iu? i'iei ci v luuuii, or some influential parties in
power, have betrayed the people who effected tbe late
Indirection. While an affected negotiation with the
K.iupeior wai in progress, the troops were concentrating
round the city, and tbe Hungarians denied the privilej.e
of entering Austria. Of this Kossuth complaint.
Vienna is certain to fall, and then the fate of Hungary
is sealed for the present. The Kmperor haa issued a
proclamation, which is directed against the radical
party. More than a hundred thousand persons have
tied from Vienna Tbe latt rumor was that the oity
was formally beleaguered.
Tbe armii-tire between Piedmont and Austria has
been prolonged.
, According to the Bmlau Gazette, the news had
been received that peace was concluded with Italy.

constitution, and its nationality acknowledged. Tbe
German troops are to be withdrawn from Italy. This
is important?if true.
The French ministry have had another victory.
Great efforts were made by the clubs to have the election
of President postponed until after Christmas,
and evil consequences were apprehended; but. oontrary
to all anticipation, the National Assembly, on
Thursday evening, came to a vote on the subject. Of
the 819 present, 587 voted for the election on the 1-th
set down the day as the 10th, instead of the 12th.?
December, and 232 against it.
Our previous accounts set down the day as the
10th instead of the 12th
St'i luoirs Dkugsand Medic ines.?Dr. Edwards,
of Ohio, Chairman of the Select Committee of
the House, which reported the medicine bill passed
at the last session ot Congress, has been spending
tw o or three days in our city. The faculty of
New York, at their annual dinner a few days
since at the Astor House, expected the presence
of the doctor as an invited guest; but irom an un
expected delay, he did not arrive in season to
l>articipate in this agreeable re-union of the profession.
The bill of last Congress provides lor a special
inspection of drugs and medicines arriving in the
ports of the United States, aud for the rejection of
all spurious articles. We are glad to learn that
the medical profession are pleased with the safeguards
of the bill; and that with a view to render
it as efficient as possible, Dr. Edwards has been
visiting the apothecaries and physicians of our
j principal seiports, lor the good object of acquiring
such mfoimation as maybe useful in rendering
his bill a permanent sanitary law. Another ad,

It may, also, be a matter of interest to the universal
panacea inventors and dealers in quack,
medicines for the cure of all imaginable diseases,
i to be infoimed that Dr. Edwards contemplates introducing
a bill into the House at the coming ses.

eion, by requiring an analysis of all nostrums for
i which a patent may be asked, and a decision in
their favor respectively by competent medical men,

The doctor has gathered a mass of information
relating to the business of the importation and sales
of medicines lr. the United States, which will>
doubtless, be embedied in a report to the House.
We wish the gentleman success in his laudable
efforts to secure, for the benefit of the faculty and
| the alHicted, genuine medicines, in lieu of the
, worthless drugs, and worse than useless poisons,
which have entered so lirgely into the trade as to
lead to the almost unanimous passage of the proj
hibiting act of the last session.

At State elections, since 1811, these 11 counties
have voted as follows:?
1816. 1847.
Governor. Lt. Governor.
Young, (whig,) 28,671 Fish, (whig,) 25,2!*7
Wright, (dent ) 26,691 Dayton, (huuk.) 18,233
Whig majority, 1,980 Whig majority, 7,061
11 Gen. Taylor's vote in the 11 counties to come
in, equals that of Gov. Young in 1816?say 23,671?
his total vote in the State will be over 217,000.
About 30,000 democratic aid abolition votes in
these 11 counties are to be divided between Cass
and Van Buren?the largest propoition to Van Huron,
so that their united vote will be about 228,000;
Van Buren probably coming out ahead of Cass.
The combined vote of the two candidates against
Gen. Taylor will, therefore, show a majority
against him of 11,000, which is a whig gain siuce
1844, of about ten thousand?the majority of Polk
and Birney over Clay having beea 2J,918. There
was also then a majority against Mr. Polk of 10,706
in the State, in 1844?the following being the
aggregate vote at that time, viz:?
Clay 282,432
Birney 15,812
Polk 237,583
Majority against Polk 10,706
Thus, although the democratic electoral ticket
received 5,10C plurality over that of the whi^s,
Mr. Polk was in the minority in the State, 10,71)6 :
According to the Philadelphia Republic, a
free soil paper, the following are the reported
votes in eight of the counties to come in :?
Tiylar. Cat*. V. Buren.
Cataraugus, (part) 2,048 1,560 830

If these returns are nearly correct, Taylor's

however, but the official returns will b?
deemed entirely satisfactory.
