All the reports which we are enabled to mibI*h
to-iliy from the Richmond |>a|iet'4 relative to
the wtite of tvtiuivs in Chuttanongu are of the most
favorable character. The Richmond Ex uiikier

that Geieral Burnside ha' joined h!iu, and
that the attempt 'if the rebel General Imboden tc
out. off the conirnmri'atioii bet ween Rosecrans ami

road had prove.1 a failure. At last accounts botl
armies were confronting each other, ami Genera!
Rnaecranx had established three linen of defencc
in front oi the town, while Genera! Bragg was at
th?Hame time fortifying Missionary Ridge. The
Richmond Dispntc'i warns the "orer-ianguine
multitude"' that the capture of General
KonecrflDV uimy by Bragg is no easy
Job. The rebel atta>:k on McMlnnville, which w?
reported yesterday, indicates a flank movement or
the army of General Rosecrans, which cannot b<
ucoeasful, owing to the precautions taken by thi
General to prepare for such an attempt.
We learn by a despatch from Nashville yester

thousand cavalry: m >de a raid on the railroad lim
between Nashville and Bridgeport, with wha

The Opinion Ni tic-Hale of Paris, Prince Napo;

t By the arrival at thia port yesterday of the
I steamship Roanoke, from Havana on the 30th
ult., we have later advices in reference to tbe progress
of the struggle In St. Domingo between the
I natives and the Spaniards. The rebellion appears
\ to be spreading, and the guerilla style of fighting
. pursued by the Dominicans gives no rest to the
Snaninh troons. The renort of the burning of the
1 town of Santiago de los Caballeros by the natives
is confirmed. General Gaudara had aiaumed comI
niand of the Spanish forces and transferred hia
, base of operationa from Puerto Plato to Monte
Christi.
By the Roanoke we have also advices from Ve8
nezuela to the 7th of September. General Falcon
' was preparing to besiege Porto Cabello, and had
ii given.notice that he would treat as mutineera
, snch of the troops in that city as might be made
prisoners. Falcon had refused to recognise the
contract entered into by the Veneenelan Consul in
n this city for a line of steamers to run between this
i- port and Laguayrn.
? The government transport steam-hip Cosmopolitan.
from Hilton Head, S. C., on the morning of
Saturday last, arrived at this port about two
r> o'clock this morning, bringing two hundred and
n twenty sick and wounded soldiers from Morris
r Inland uud Beaufort. She brings no wws from
Charleston later than that previously received.

' of the dummy engines used within the <; ty limits

and afterwards referred to the Finance Committee.

8ome months ago Won dell l*hillipd an- b?
nounoed that ha bad made the discovery thut "a
Mr. Lincoln aud his Cabinet had resolved th
themselves into a committee to manage the w
next l'reahleutial election, and he at the sainc ex
time dealt moat unmercifully with the bland bt
but not brMliant Postmaster General, who was ' ft?
engaged just then ia stumping one of the New w
England States in support of the conservative of
policy of the administration. The silver- eh
tongued abolitionist was not mistaken, as the th
course of events since then abundantly proves. H
The war against the armies of Lee, or Bragg, se
or Magruder may relax; the Anglo-rebel co
pirate vessels may with impunity make the Ei
sea their heritage; our financial system may tei
be sinking us into more irretrievable ruin, and
our foreign affairs may be getting more and im
more muddled; but not for all or any of these mi
causes can there be, or has there been, any, th
slackening of efforts, any mitigation of antago- co
nisin on the part of Mr. Lincoln's Secretaries ii(
against each other and all others on the sub- th
ject of the next Presidency. th
The other day the Tribune published the pro- ha
Kt'ainmo of Chase, Stanton and the unmanage- of
ablen of the abolition party, and we gave to it, j8
as iv political document, the benefit of our eir- tit
culation. so that all might know what the ultras aB
are driving at. To-day wo publish the re- Jf
sponsive manifesto of the conservative ole- j
ments of the Cabinet, comprising Lincoln,
Seward, Bates and Blair, issued in the shape of it
a speech delivered by the last named gentle- d?
man at a political meeting held in Rockville, a,
Md., on the 3d inst.?the first appearance of the 4)1
Postmaster General, we believe* since the ni
ruthless assault made upon him by Wendell th
Phillips. m
We are delighted to be assured In the very rc
Opening of this address that "there is good rea- to
Bon for believing that peace will soon be re- ^
wtor?<l to our oountry." In that assurance we tfc
lecugDisc me minu ana vuougar-flr our pro- n(
phetic Premier, and we swallow It with m t?
much faith as zealot ever embraced a dogma, g
Soon 1 Certainly; but it it to be In sixty days, a
Mr. Seward! Or must we contain onr souls in ^
patience until after the for mwe important m
question of the succession is deeided? We very 0
much fear so. In the next sentence we are told u
by this most conservative but most iliogioal of
Cabinet officers, that peaoe Is to be "follows^ w
by (he early suppression from onr system, of
the institution of domestio slayery." And here. v
we pause, lost in wonder snd amaze, aud,we ai
ask ourselves, can it be pewlble that tbe ant!- ],
abolitionist and antl-amalgamatlonist Postmas- tt
tar Oeneral can haVe uttered this rather deci- a
dedly abolitionist doctrine f Well, perhaps Mr. j,
Seward's finger was in the pie to that extent, t|
and so we pass on to its more delicious ingre- ?
dients. We soon come upon them. In tbe ^
very next paragraph we find that "Richard's t|
himself again;" aud, as we read on, we realize i
that the whole abolition cohort is routed,
horse, foot and dragoon, before the trenchant 0
cimetar of tbe apostolic knight of conserva- ?
tism. Hark! how heavily fall his blows npon p
the strongholds "of amalgamation, equality and p
fraternity"?heavily as did the battle axe of t,
Cceur de Lion on tbe heavily knobbed castle n
gate of Torquilstone. The Washington Chro- v
nick, led on by tbe truckling Forney, and dis- r
playing tbe banners of Chase and Stanton?the w
man of mouey and the man of war?goes down \
before him; the Missouri Democrat, repret-ent- 0
ing tbe Fremont graft of abolitionism, and
backed by the whole Teutonic element of tbe fc
Southwest, is sought Oi^t as a personal enemy v
in tbe melee of opposing forces and crushed to v
earth, though perhaps to rise agnln; ami, n
finally, that heaviest of the beavW, tie n
' Atlantic Monthly, Is encountered by this young a
David, and, like Goliath of old, Is soon j
writhing under th? well directed missile from n
his sling. Than on the field of Rockville have f
the triple factions that are arri\yejl against a
Pre?ident Lincoln and his conservative pollcy?tbe
factions of Chase and Stanton, of Fre- n
mont and tirri lay*r. of Sumner nn?l abolition ,,
New Hngland?b?>en encountered and dlscomfi'"<l
by tbe postal paladin ?eut out from a
Washington and commissioned by Mr. Lincoln ](
to charge tho abolitionists, as David wa* com* ?
missioned by King Soul to erertl . w I'hil- t,
inline*. t
And yet, amid tbe ticeanr.ale of vkt-jry and
tho sbonte of triumph over a r< red enemy, we t
arc haunted witb the dread suspicit n it at after
all th?re wee very little principle Involved in 1
tbe contest Tbe battle ory of tbe abolition a
bordee waa 'negroemancipation and tbe wiping r
out of rebel State organisation*" Afalnst
these destructive doitilne* Mr. Blair waa aenl a
to do battle, and did it well. But at the going f
down of tbe mm, aa be ia returning the vietor i
from this well fought field, what strange song
does he sing? Ia it possible tbat in overthrow- t
ing tbe abolitionists be ha* adopted theJr worst n
here?i<-s Fore feed it heaven au<l all the saints s,
afcd ii ai lyrs! And yet hearken unto th? word* d
of his mouth: -"Slavery in tbe Territories is ' p
unconstitutional; but if tie rebel territory falls d
under the exclusive jurisdiction of the national F
government then slavery will be Impossible t<
tbsre. In a legal and constitutional rouse il p
will die at oace. Tbe air will be too pure
for a slave. 1 cannot doubt bnt tbat a
this great triumph has been already wen." a
Is ii Mr- Montgomery Blair wbo uses this lan- s

fords do material for groping one's' irk/
it of the labyrinth. There are quotation
arks covering a preceding sentence, which
ads:?1-Slavery, says the programme, is tmxuible
within the exclusive jurisdiction of tlm
itional goveruuieut." But the quotation
arks end with that st*uteuoe, i?d it Is lol vi-d

but we cannot poa^bly se.t it right. Then

ud so on to the end of our first extiacU
jo personal pronoun "I" has no re!etenco,

lybody but Mr. BlAir himself; and we must,
erefore. in equal surprise and sadness, conns
that the Postmaster C.eueral, who *tarts

But tor all that, and bating this remarkable
congruity near the close of the speech, which
?y be, alter all, only a blunder on the part of
e speaker, the reporter or the copyist, we
nitneiKl this conservative manifesto to pub:

In another part of this journal we publish a
tter from our Paris correspondent giving the
ttails of a reported alliance between France
id the Davis government. It will be seen
iat the rebels in Paris assert that Prince Maxiilian
makes it a condition of bis accepting
e Mexican throne that the Southern governent
shall renounce the Monroe doctrine and
cognize the new Mexican empire, according
i it the old boundaries of Mexico, including
aw Mexico, California and Arizona; also that
ie D*vis government shall guarantee the
wr Mexican empire against all American inirference.
The rebels in Paris assert that
Udell agreed to these conditions, and tfeat, at
consequence, France entered into an alliance

It is quite unnecessary for u* to add that
place no reliance upon the fulfilment of
iy of those promises said to have been made
y Napoleon. On the. contrary, we deem
. much more than likely that theM assertion)*
re made by the rebels in Europe with the
itention of stirring up bad feelings betweeu
be people of our loyal States and France, and
rlth the hope of entangling Napoleon in somi
ray in his relations with .this government, sc

hat Prince Maximilian should have made anj
nch conditions as regards his acceptanw
f the new throne offered to him we dc
ot believe, as we cannot for one moment impose
that he or any man ia bis senses would
lace any reliance upon the assistance of a reellloua
government now so near its end. I(
iust be apparent to all Europe that the North
rill ere long compel the seeded State* to i
econstructton of the Union, and that U* n?>xl
tep to be taken by the government of tb?
Inited States will b? the complete vindicatior
f the Monroe doctrine.
The ambitious, overweening schemes attii
hi tod to the Emperor of the French by hit
ronld-be allies are too absurd to gain credence
nth us. We are nware that his position or
bis continent is difficult in the extreme, arK
hat, as he undertook his invasion of M?*xic<
gainst the feelings of his people, he munt en
[savor to get out of it with as little loss as pos
Ihle: but we cannot imagine for a nivmenl

'Russia has boldly thrown down the gauntlet

(M'Cidiar condition of affair* doe* uot exist. ?e<
In one of the most exciting cauvasaen known th<
in this State one year ago, with an aggregate ci<
rote of a fraction over six hundred tbonsaad, t0i
the democrats elected their Governor by about |0|
ten thousand majority. This majority, although fa
email when the aggregate vote is considered, - j0|
in ordinary times might be looked upon as m
carrying with it a prestige that would' decide jy
the matt this year. But in times like the n(
present it amounts to nothing in regard to the to
success or failure of either side. tS<
The result in this State will be decided by 8n
different causes from that of any other State. fa
Tn tftiA Am* nId/>A KnHt aMm htvn nlft?id their til
candidates on a conservative war platform; but
ach party baa a faction in it laboring for tbe pi
defeat of their ticket. Tbe Seward-Weed sec- 0j
tlon of the republican party were successful at OI
tti? State Convention, and the ether aide consider j\
that tbe success of the ticket in November will |ii
be interpreted as tbe triumph of Seward, and M
thus be an important spoke in the wheel for tbe q,
nomination of Seward or LtncolB for Presi- th
dent next year, and thus defeat alt the e<
plans of Chase and his radical fac- th
tion. The course of Jim Lane and the ether 0
extreme niggerheads East and West shows tfa
tbe recklessness and the rule or ruin determi- ai
nation of that faction thronghout the country; n<
while the insane copperhead clique in tliia n<
State are equally determined upon the de- L
struction of their party. In short, then, Horc. si
Greeley and tbe Hon. Ben. Wood have more to di
do in deciding the result in tbe Empire State hi
than any one else. It all depends upon which tc
of these two men can do tbe most mischief to q<
his party. We are inclined to think that in
Greeley can damage the republicans more than e<
the Hon. Ben. Wood can tbe democracy. We ei
are inclined to believe that Greeley h
has the advantage of Beq. Wood, u
Greeley has taken the very Devil for his e<
god. whilst Ben. Wood makes Moloch his king. 01
Greeley, being the embodiment of Satan, has p
the advantage of Ben. Wood. Although Moiocb tl

and far outstrips Greeley in his strawberry,
i gold pen and other lottery schemes;
) yet all the lesser devils have to give way to
i Satan himself, and we therefore believe that
' Greeley will come out ahead of Ben. Wood in
the end.
This extraordinary condition of affairs places
a different phase on the issues in this State
than that of any other. It narrows the contest
and the excitement of the canvass down to the
" point as to which of two men can do the most
i mischief. Greeley, with Satan to back bitn, is <
just now ahead; trot the Hon. Ben. Wood, with
i his devil. Moloeh, may, before the csnvass is
ended, make such a turn and twist with
i bis lotteries and copperhead Insanity as
1 will ruin the entire party and out)
Herod Greeley. Both are bound on mischief.

and Satan or Ben. Wood and Moloch arc the
most powerful. It is an amusing content, and
will no doubt aoon be far more interesting
than all the operas, theatres and negro minstrel
performances put together.
Tiik Matorai.tt contksr.?The politician*
are now twisting and turning over the candidate*
for county officers to be elected in November;
but it makes but little or no difference
I a* to what they do if they will only keep In
view the great question or a more vigorous
proiiecntien of the war and stand Arm in favor
of that issue. The question of Mayor at the
D-'oerubor electiou is. however, one of great
i importance. Among the candidates we no!
tice. in the first place, the name of James B.
Nicholson. We do not remember of having
! beard of him before. lie may be a very good
! Commissioner for Charities and Correction; but
we want in these times men of positive character
fur Mayor. It is no time to try experiments
i with new and unknown men. In tho next
i place we have John Anderson, whose name is
' mentioned in coanectlon with thin office. Anderson
Is* very good man. a successful tobae- c
i conist, and knows how to make money; but he j(
is not a nan of nerve, of bold and pesitiv* f
character necessary for the chief magistrate of a .1
ity like New York in these days of revolution j
| and riot, and is therefore until for the position j t
at prwnt. C. Godfrey Gunther is urged by f
another interest. Il?. too, lacks the reqnislte d
talent tor the position. He is ft successful (
dealer in furs and aa excellent citic*n; but be
bos shown oo quality that proves him to be >
tbe man for that position (a these revolutionary *
times. | t|

' of tbe Inspector's oflhe it proof positive that '

qualities needed at tbm time in a Mayor of ; J

trying a donbtful experiment with an unknown ' ><i
man: for our citizens will be assured beforehand I ^
that there can be ne doubt but tbut in him we w
m
shall hare a man who knows bis duty, and hns
tbe aerve to discharge that duty, let what will |

As to the republicans, we presume that they ! ix
have already had enough of Mayor Opdyke b
and his sbftky condition when ner.e and bold- ui
nees are required; and we see no other name M
mentioned that has any chance for success with A
ft bold and fe*rless man like Boole running w
agninst him. Whatever the democracy may do, U
