Bemlug Election in New York?Prospect of |
an Entire Revolution. ,
According to all appearances, from Tammany
Hall to Buffalo, we arc on the eve of another extraordinary
political revolution in this State?a i
revolution, too, based on good sense, the preservation
of the Union, and the triumph of those
principles that have been tried and tested for half
a century in this great and growing country. Let
?s survey the ground and the position of the contending
The two parties into which the democrats have
been temporarily divided,~did not, it is true, unite
I Rome. But they approached each other. They
bad an interchange of views and sentiments, in
the most approved style, and with all the amusing
formalities in which political leaders amuse themselves
and edify the people. Both sections have
issued their " addresses." These documents are
before the public, and have doubtless been spelled
over or dozed over by half a score of indefatigable
readers. One great fact, howtver, has been * limited
by the proceedings at Rome, and the subse
quint publication of those addresses; and it is j
this on the subjeet of slavery, in the abstract,
both parties are agreed. The only difference between
them is, that the " hunkers," as they are
ailed, plant themselves upon the old constitutional
plutlorm on which the great democrat is
party of the Union has maintained itself for fifty
years -, while the barnburners take a position
utterly hostile to the rights and interests of the
Southern State a. The barnburners claim a monopoly
of philanthropy and anti-sluvery feeliiig.
But, in point of fact, the hunkers take still more
nltra ground than their brethren of the opposite
section. They reject the doctrine of the barnburners,
that Congress hus the |>ower to exclude
slavery from the t? rntones, because, for one
reason, if Congress have the power to exclude
that institution from tbe territories, it must, of necessity,
possess tbe pow er of establishing it there.
They hold that Congress cannot legislate on the
subject at all, uod that the whole matter must be
left, under the constitution, to the people of the
trrntoties tlu meelves. But the discussion ot this
question is now idle. It has ceased to possess any
practical interest, it is quietly settling itself forover
Indeed, the quarrel between the members of the
democratic party, who huve for the last year or
1*0 arranged themselves tinder different banners,
has bt en much more of a personal difficulty, than
nf a controversy resulting from a difference of
opinion on great political principles. It has been
n dispute among the leaders, rather than a dis- I
union of the masses. Offended by the defeat of i
bis nomination in 1HH, while still smarting under
his rejection by the people in the election of J.*4 ID,
Van Huren eageily at ized upon the Wiltnot proviso
agitation as a convenient means sf gratifying
his spleen and feeding his mal.imity. A serious |
misunderstanding among the prominent democratic
leaders in this State, in relation to the management
and distribution of the s|>oils, hapi?-n< d
%> favor the designs of the Van Iittren family, and
he dependents snd follow era. The result w as seen
is the Presidential election. Casa was defeated,
nd the Van Btiren r/tywe proudly und joyfully "liid

looking, then, at the present eign* of the timea,
with an impartial eye, we are atrongly inclined to
believe that the pronpect of a coalition of the democratic

ore hopeful than it would have been even had
there been a formal anion at Home. The
maeera of the people are ready to come together.

Whigs in this city, have tended to demoralize and
break down the party. Thus, the truth of the
Chakepearinn adage hoe been again illustrated;?

Here have been these whigs in power, using the
power and patronage of their position to their own
destruction! The moat obnoxious appointments
have been made under the government of the city,
the State, and the general government. Unpopular
inen, and the descendants of unpopular men,
have been chosen as the recipients of whig favor
w hile the rank and hie have been contumeliously
thrust aside. The result has been a degree of indignatiou
and dissatisfaction in the whig ranks,
which we have not seen displayed in the history
of that purty for many years past.
All things, then, concur in enforcing tha conviction
upon the mind, that the hunker democracy, at
it ia called, will unite in this State at the coming
election, with all the other elements of discontent,
and produce a complete and entire revolution from
New York to Buffalo. In tills city itself, there
can be no doubt as to the result. The faction
called the barnburners received all their force
and impetus from the brilliant speeches and
sparkling witticisms of Johu Van Buren. But he
is now disposed, at all reasonable hazards, tc
re-unite with Tammany Hull, and take his chance
in the game of the future. In the metropolis, the
i barnburners never numbered more than a few
I miserable hundreds; and in the coming election
| the democrucy of Tammany Hall will take theii
j measures, muke their Dominations, and go into the
I field without regard to any particular clique o;

in regard to the continued union of the States, and
the preservation of the great principles of the federal

Thk Secret Expedition to Ccha or SoMK'.viinni
Ei.se.?When we first gave intimation of the ex
istence of the secret expedition, it was ruliculee
by the boobies of journalism, from the head boobj
in this city to the lowest and smallest in a conn
try village. The fact is now admitted in all quur
ters, North and South. In this city it seems the ad
venturers, in great numbers, meet every night at cer
tain public places,discuss the project to a certain ex
tent, enlist recruits, and make preparations for sail
'ng in a few days. Soms of the most courageoui
and adventurous characters that were engaged in
the Mexican war, are at the heud of this secret
enterprise. Money seems to be quite abundant,
both in New Orleans and New York. Another curious
feature in the mutter is the fact that the arrang'
ments are mnde with so much discretion in
regard to the laws of the country, as to prevent the
government at Washington from legally interfering
with the movement or the preparations. In fact,

Familv At eointmznts ami Family IVvtrowue
?We are credibly iaturmed that eonie twelve ot
fotirternof the family connections of Mr. Mere
dith. Secretary of the Treaaury, living in thia re'
gi?n, have been appointed to fat |iiacea in the
custom house, by Mr. Maxwell, under orders fron:
Washington. We also learn that live or six of the
family connections of Mr. Brady, the Postmastei
in this city, have aleo received fat nppointmentsscme
m the custom house, and some in the post
office. Many other appointments of n aiinilat
character huvr been nuide in tlio.c publia ollicea,
and some one acquainted with the aubiect is preparing
a curious ?r.d interesting list of those new
appointments, which will rather startle some ol
(he old politicians, wbrait makes its appearance.
We have already noticed that one of the new appoin'nr
ents has been urrrsted for being a thief, and
we understand that aorne half dozen offices in
the custom house have been given to that highly
resj?? etable class of society who spend their time
in ntt? riding the stews and gambling bells nbout
town. Now, in making those blunders, wc do not
much blame Mr. Maxwell, whose moral character
i- be)< nd reproaeh, but whose sagacity is at leaat
twenty years behind the age. He has been impose
d upon by bad advice, and we would ask the
Collector if it would not be preferable for him to

aid tmi IVoaro <>r Hkai.tm.? We have obtained
an elaborate statement of facts, fully subatantiated,
in reference to the conduct of the city authorities
and the Board of Health, in relation to the cholera,
which will ahaolutely astound liir public, prepared
ss this community is for almost any rrpnti of the
incoinpeloney, stupidity and recklessness of these
e.fTii lals. The other day, we took occision to exp?-?e
and denounce the horriola neglect of the poor,
of winch the authorities have been guilty during
ihe prevalence of the pretilence. Wa are now

of our most respectable physicians, and by the

of the corporation and the Hoard of Health, is to
he aecrtbrd, probably, twiethirde of lie mortality
which ban marked the visitation of the cholera.?
Tomorrow* we rlia.ll enter into the detitil*. It is
nough to elate, at present, that the upi?*r ward* of
the city, w here the poor reside, were shamefully
neglected, nnd that in several instances in whi< h

Ckmetkky Rwom.-We have recently exposed
'be abominations that have been practised in Putter**
Field, Hundull's Island, and nearer the heart
of the city, too, in burying men like dogs, and pol.
luting the pure air of heaven with the noisome
tench of the putriiying remain* of poor humanity.
We perceive that a partial reform has been coerced
by the force of opinion. A new Potter's
Field is to supersede the old ; and the outruges
upon law, decency, and the moral sense of the
community, are to cease?at least, at Randall's
Island. That the malpractices perpetr^ml in the
cemetery on that island wers contrary to 1m, there
cannot be a doubt. An act ot the State Legislature
provides, under a heavy penalty, that no dead
body shall be interred less than six feet below the
surfuce of the ground surrounding the cemetery.
Now, in the Potter's Field?which in iy well be
i called " the weltering field of the toothless dead"?
the coffins are not only not below the surface at all,
, but piled more than six feet above it?in fact, not
i buned at all, unless, indeed, we can apply the term
. burial to the lower tiers, which are three or four
i feet below tbe level of the sand ; for, in theBe pits,
, There are dead above, and tbe dead below
Lie cold in many a coltln'd row.
The Uugiant violation, then, of the sanitary provision
of burying the dead six feet below the sur.
' face of the earth, has been connived at by the municipal
authorities, and particularly by the " Sani
' tary Committee" of the body called the Board of
Health. The Board of Health consists of the
' members of the Common Council, with associated
r medical advisers. The Sanitary Committee is
a part of that body, deputed by the rest to
r attend to the health of the city, and make
such saninry regulations as the necessities of the
inhabitants demand. Now, this Board of Health,
H and this Sanitary Committee have not only tolera1
! ted nuisances of all kinds, poisoning the atmos^
pherr with tllluvia, but in the case of cemeteries,
l they have themselves set the worst of examples.
e | The Potter's Fit Id, on Randall's Island, is their
' pjoperty; it was purchased by the funds of the corporation,
and it is idle to be shifting the responsie
bihty upon the Alms House Governors, who have
only legal control of the nurseries, and not of the
' cemetery. The latter has been in existence for
e years, whereas the governors are only in office for
' a few months. Besides, front the limited and defined
nature of their duties, it would be strange,
1 indeed, if the public health, the ubating of uui1
eunces in general, or of those connected with ceme'
teries in particular, came under their cognisance.
This bandying about, therefore, of responsibility,
1 from one to another, like a shuttle-cock or a football,
aiises from a want of moral courage to meet
difficulties, or an honc6t desire to advance the pub1
lie interests committed to the trust of officials. If
a gross nuisance is pointed out by the press, or
' complained of by individuals, there is nobody in
i fault, from the Mayor dewn to the policeman. His
honor has no power; the charter has taken it from
' j liini; the officer cannot act without orders, or he
cannot find out (he names of the delinquents, havj
inp probably, got a bint to that eflect, from the Aldeiman
of the ward. A Board of Health has been
1 appointed to look alter such matters and things.
r But this body, when appesled to, refer to the Alms
IIoufc Governors, or to the City Inspector, who
refers back to the Board of Health, and thus the
round of references And shuflling goes on, while
nothing is done, and the people who "pay so dearly
. for their whistle," are victimized.
The Board of Health (and this shows that, noti
withstanding all their disclaimers, they do feel
i ronrrious of their responsibility) have been treatt
ing about Berrian's Island for the new cemetery,
, ^pd have had it surveyed for the pur|>ose. The
. residents, however, in the vicinity of the island
. ! kicked up such a muss about it that they battled
i | the job. Nothing can more decidedly prove the
' incompetence of the Board of Health for the task
they have undertaken than the selrction of such a
site for a cemetery. In the first place, there are
i only sixteen acres in this island, though the cost
, Mould l>c, we are informed, $30,000. Hut six
teen acrra of ground will only suffice lo bury
i annually 2,17t> <l--ad, at the rate of 136 to the acre,
! which ia the prr>|>er average. The dead oi thia
I city, luat year, were 15,919, of which only
| were removed from the city?the remainder,
I therefore, namely, II,03??, were interred in the
i cemeteries of the city, including 2, *97 in Potter's
field. Now, the number buried in the latter, even
last year, with a entailer population, and no cholera,
would exceed tb- capacity of the aixtern acre
i bland. W hut then would be done with the remainng
8,159 interred in the other cemeteries of
the city, which have been either cloaed, or ought
to be cloaed I Tliia year our dead will lie found
1 to ba 20,000, and thia number it would t.ike 150
acrra to bury decently, without making any provision
for the future increase of population.
Nothing leas, therefore, tlun 200 or IKK) acre*
I aught to be thought ot. Secondly, in the winter,
(he obstructions from the ice would aoinctimea
' 1 render that ialand inaccessible.
The la?t place that hai been apoken of ia Hempstead
riame, on Long Island, rituate about aixtern
miles from New York. If not too distant, thismight
answer very well, us there is ample ground winch
could be purchased cheap, and the railroad nins
right through it. Certainly, it is infinitely preferable
to the small islands in the lbist ltivei. There are
many reason* which might be urged sgainst them.
The same difficulty that apphea to Itandall'a Island
with regard to depth ol sod, probably applies
to every other island in the Sound. Then again,
instead of bring further removed trnm the people,
it ought to be brought nearer to them. It is a na;
tural w ish, common to all men, to see their dead
properly and decently buried. What in the prac'
lice at I'otter'n Field! The dead are brought to
, the dead house at Bellevue, and that is the last
i their relatives see of them When the bodies accumulate
in sufhsient number, they are conveyed
by a steamer to Toiler's Field How they are dis|o??.d
of there, the readers of the IhruU have
seen. The feelings of the survivors are revolted
j si a barbuiity never practised even by heathens or ;
savages. We say the people have a right to see
their dead interred} and the new rrraetery ought,
there fore, to be somewhere* near, in New Jersey,
Long Island, or in the upper part ol this island, say

Jvsticb at Last.?The announcement that the
trial of the Astor Flacc rioters mould be commenced
at the earliest possible period at the next term
of the Court of Sessions, has been received with
interne satisfaction by the great masses of this
community. Our confidence in the integrity of
eur criminal judiciary, shaken by the extraordinary
delay in this important case, begins to revive. We
do not believe, indeed, that the public, in general,
have any idea of the pertinacious, ingenious, and
desperate e Hints made by the authorities themselves?we
mean the corporate authorities?to
stave o(T this investigation. Nor do we wonder
at this uneasiness or these efTorts.
During the recent investigation which was prosecuted
by Judge Edmonds, some very curious
fucts were elicited, and a portion of them found
their way to the public eye, through the instrumentality
of this journal. It was in this way that the
community was startled by the revelation of the
important'part taken in the riot by certain of the
individuals who signed the card to Macready
which paved the way for the final catastrophe.
Nobody had till that moment suspected that gentlemen
of the highest respectability had actually
distiibuted tickets gratuitously to individuals who
pledged themselves to go to the theatre, and sustain
Macready, if necessary, by brute force. But
such was the extraordinary fact revealed on that
investigation. A flood of light was thus cast, by
the unfolding of this single circumstance, upon the
mode and manner In which the magnates of the ton
were accustomed to coerce opinion, and maintain
their own supremacy as dictators in matters of
taste and theatrical movements. It was shrewdly
suspected by many, that a great deal more curious
matter might be exhumed and dragged to the
light of day, it we could only get a public trial of
the persons arrested on the night of that memorable
tenth ofMay. Hence the intensity of the feeling
of indignation that the dispensation of justice
whs delayed; and hence, too, the extraordinary
degree of satisfaction which the movements
of Mr. District Attorney M'Keon, have now
It is not at all strange, that the present civic authorities
should feel nervous with regard to these
singular trials. An election is approaching. The
people, often apathetic in regard to the capacities,
the crimes or the virtues oi the local authorities,
have been rudely and thoroughly aroused in this
instance. Those futal volleys still ring in their
?ars. The sight of the bleeding bodies of their
fellow-citizens, shot down without a moment's
warning, has not ceased to present itself again to
thousands oi our hard-working people, as at night
they seek the repose which attends on the pillow
of honorable toil. It was, Indeed, a temble example
of the weakness and incompetence of the
present rulers of the city, that was presented on
that fatal night; and it is only human nature that
the authorities should seek to bury all in everlasting
oblivion. But justice must be done. Tbe whole
I tiuth must be revealed. We await these trials
I with unaffected anxiety. Whosoever stands, or
I whosoever falls, let us have truth made manifest,
' and justice measured out to all.
Tiik Cholkra anii Business prospe.rrs.?By
! reference to the report of the Sanitary Committee
of this city, published in another column, it will
' be perceived that the cholera is decreasing very
rapidly, and the proppect is good that it will disappear
entirely in a few days. Only eleven deaths
are reported for the twenty-four hours ending yesterdhy
at noon, which is hardly anything, compared
to our population of half a million or more.
t It is full time, we think, thut the Sanitary Committee
ct asrd rej>orting. The city never was more
healthy than it is at present, but those reports de
ter persons at n distance from visiting the metropolis,
although they may do bo with |*rfect safety,
'lite < holera is confined to certain localities, which
are klwayR unhealthy. The general health is as
i good an it ever was.
I The protect before our business men ia very
flattering. As it is, our first hotels?the Aator
| House, the Irving House, the New York Hotel,
and others, are crowded to overflowing with
company ; and when the season ends at the
fashionable watering places, which will be the
case in a few days, New York will wear a more
bustling aspect than it ever did. After the fancy
bull at Newport, the city will be as guy as ever,
; and more so.
Tiik Posts?! lirrstios. ?Some of the cheap
and dirty newspapers are clamorous for a law of
Congress, permitting all new*pa|?rs to pass free
through the mails, for any di'tauoe and in any
quantity. Such a proposition is perfectly preposterous,
and can meet with little favor even among
those classes of society who are aoi particularly
well Informed. As the law stands at present, all
exchange newspapers are conveyed free by the
Post Office department; that is, the publishers of
over twothousand newspapers tn the Vnitrd States
receive each their journals and transmit their ow n,
to all their contemporaries, free of postage. This
I is certainly a liberal arrangement, and shows that
there is no tax imposed upon the diffusion of intelligence.
iiut the demand, that all nrwspnjiers
should be free, is rather too impudent. With just
as much justice or decency, these dirty newspaper
publishers might call upon the people of the (nitcd
States to pay their compositors' wages and their
ps|<er-mfckrr?' bills What we want is n low, uniform
rate of postage on letters and newspapers, in
all cases to be prepaid ; and these clap-trap demands
for the free conveyance of newspapers impede,
rather than promote, the accomplishment of
this great measure.

It hktltf kMi announced yesterday, through the
medium of the newspapers, that this intrepid aeromut
would, nt Vauxball Oardens, give an extraordinary eibibltton
with hla balloon, some persons collected to
witness the novel and dahgerous feat. During the
prretis of Inflation, there was a good deal of koon pun
wit in circulation, and more than once the Are
bed nearly disappointed the hopes of the spectators,
by the redoctioif of the whole affair to ashes. Once it
actually caught Are. which, however, was extinguished
before much damage wan done. Shortly before six
o'clock tbe inflation was completed, when toe m waa
attschid. and on the siguul to let go the ropes being
given, the excitement became very great. This part
of the business having been managed very unskilfully,
tbe balloou struck against a tree, and then went a abort
distance in a slanting direetlon, tearing up a polo
which had been several feet in the ground, and tc
which waa alill fastened one of tha ropes. By the
effort of the aeronant himself and the exertlona of one
or two in the gardens, thia difficjlty waa surmounted,
and tbe hallo.u ascended amidst the elicers of those
on krta Jit ma; but it bad nut proceeded far when it
came in "violent contact with Doctor tiray's hooae, in
Lafayette place, the oar lodgiffft on the front, and the
main part of the balloon hanging from the ohimney
top, Yardalle die played great eourage and self,
poesersion while iu hia perilous situation He tried
to open tbe bliuda of tbe window, which he was
unable to do. hut he held on till he was relieved
by those Inside. At first it waa thought that he
could not, by any possibility, escape with bit life.
Thousands surrounded Dr. (iray's house, to see the
uiau who in* short time made his appearance, and
seemed quite unoonoerned at what had oceurred, and
only regrettlDg tbe serious injury which his stock in
trade bad suffered. Tbe balloon having been disengaged
from tbe chimney top, which has become of late
a lavorite stopping place fur such vehiolea, it waa aonvejed
to the garden, it is a bad wind which blowa nabody
good; the failure of tbe ascent, and the elroumstances
attending it. drew some thousands of men, women
and boys together, very many of whom, after thw
excitement had cooled down a bit, repaired to the bar
of tbe bouse and there recruited their exhausted spirit*
j by pouring spirits down The landlord made a good
: thing of the business, but we think that thefewi(tiarI
ters which Victor Vaidalle received will uot by any _
! means cover tbe expense of the iuflation and the loaalie
bus sustained by tbo uutoward event. On a former
occasion, a similar accident happened to the same person
in New Orleans; and if he went up by the heels ho
came d swn head foremost, and bad well nigh beeu dash ed
to pieces But nothing daunted, be tried his luck
again, and made a beautiful ascent. The remarks wislrli
were made during the preparation for the visit to Lh? '
clouds were exceedingly laughable One person said,
" This speculation won't pay." " Ob ' said anoth-u-, |
"there's no speculation iu it?it's life insurance that's
concerned." A third exclaimed, at tho top of his voice,
to the musicians who were perched up upon the roof ot
the house, "liive us a tune?give as one of ths
latest Polkas In your beat style. You are sitting there,
like Kerrubs and tburribs, doing nothing; the people
outside will think you are asleep.'' Here there was a
retreat from the scene of the inflation?the stuff being
turned over, caused a klazo ?when a chap roared out.
"tbey will burn it up before they are done with it!"
Tbe crowd theu dispersed.

his bvrtb, which was ut the toot of Deforest's, there waa
an open space of some 0 inches, enough for any man ta
put Lis baud and arm through. In the morning, on
waking up. Mr. Wise discovered hie lose, and immediately
suspected Deforest, whom he eaussd to be arrested
iwuicd.ately ou the airival of tbe boat; on searching
the person ot Deforest, none of the stolen property waa
