In no city in the world wonld such a nnl inoce be permitted to remain for half the time. Highly Impartial from Karopf-Th* Proposed Peace Ceagreai Imtilled Out hy Aactrla. The foar days later news by the steamship City of Paris, the details of which we submit to our readers this morning, will be found In one particular at least, of the highest moment. We refer to the snuffing out by Austria of the proposed Peace Congress. Invited to join this Congress by Napoleon, and in the courteous style of the spider's invitation to the fly, Austria proves too old a fly to be oaught In the web of the gay deceiver. She will not go into the propoeed congress to be victimised. She requires before hand an assurance from all the Powers concerned that they each renounce any special or particular interest calculated to disturb the general tranquillity; or in other words that they respectively disclaim in ad vance any purpose of a territorial augmenta tion or increase of power, iu becoming parties to thia'Congreas. This sins guti not* of Austria quashed the proceedings at once. The three neutral Powers, England, Franoe and Russia, coincided in the opinion that In \ ..?w of this Austrian ultimatum the proposed congress would be without any useful result, snd that it may therefore be considered aa indefinitely postponed. Mr. Gladstone had communicated I this intelligence to the British House of Com mons, and the Impreasion produced In England, as on the continent, was that a widespread con tinental war must inevitably and speedily fol low. Austria, in this treacherous business of a congress, has shown a remarkable degree of j sagacity and pluck. Without the conditions she interposed in regard to that congress her position therein would have been that of the sheep to be sacrificed by the council of wolves. Through the influence of Nupoloon and his sup porters she would havo been required to sur render to Prussia those Danish Duchies, the spoils of a joint robbery in tho north, and to give up Venotia to Italy in the south, and all for the sake of pence. Of course Napoleon would havo had his compensations troin Prus sia (say to the left bank of the Rhine), and from Italy (say in the Island of Sardinia), and everything would have been beautifully settled at the expense un<l humiliation of Austria for th? present and greatly to her prejudice in view of Allure European complications. At all tho hazards of a war, therefore, with two or three Powers and on two or three sides at once, Aus tria politely rays to Napoleon, if peace can be secured to Europe only by territorial spolia tions from our empire, including Yenetia, let there be war. Tho drama, as wo anticipate it, w ill be opened in Yenelia first, in acino overt act by the Ital ians. and then in a regular invasion of Italy by a well appointed Austrian army, exceeding, perhaps, one hue mil ? nd fifty thousand fight ing men. Then wo n?vy I ok for the movement of another French a'my over tho Alps to res cue young Italy and to reduce Austria to terras. In the meantimo there may or there may not bo a war between Austria and Prussia, hut if those two important characters in the play avoid a collision there will be a slight bitch In Louis Napoleon's scheme of European recon struction. For his imperinl purposes, however, ho can honestly bay, with Sir Lucius O'Trigger, 1 tua? this German imbroglio is "a mighty pretty qunrr-l cs it stands" and that "it would bo a pity to spoil it." France desires war and a regular Napoleonic imperial campaign against the old dynasties and those detested treaties of the Holy Alliance of 1815. Russia is ready nnd eager for war, with a hungry eye upon that doomed "sick man of Turkey." England, however, is bound to keep the peace, and is tho only one or the three neutruls really anxious for j?caoe. This is why the projected conference was so earily snuffed out. Had Franco and Ru?sia really desired peace they could, with England, havo dictated their own terms to Austria, Piussla and Italy, and compelled them to accept tlio e terms nnd 10 come into a conference with Ih * understanding. As tb" matter stands wc may look for actual war any moment; and if orcc commcuo d then is no telling what shape it will assume, what c ements wili rise to con trol it or v bat in-ilea will est upo it, as between the divine r'. 'ita of kings and the inherent und bmlienahlo rights of tho people. V?"c apprehend that the republican revolu tionary elements of the Germanic States, in clttdinL' I! ingiuy, will boou take a command ing position in tho foreground and give a new direction to the chapter of events; and wc up prehend tha* England, in spite of herself, will Im drawn nf or n while Into another llnly Alli ance. It -o, then the hour w ill be at hand for ? rls'ng of the Fenians of Ireland, for France will b ? lucre to help tit"m. In any event, front nil the tigns of the times, as It if apparent that tin- old feudal system of England will not es cape the general shaking up of the kings and aristocracies ol F.urojs- by tho people, Irel?nd'a opportunity, with England's difficulty, may not lie tar off. The war which Austria has accepted as preferable to Napoleon's Peace Conference will iuvolve larger questions and greater con sequences than .^chleswig-Holsteln and Yenetia. Th* Phesipeht'h Vbto or a Mi vino PnsruLi tion Itiix.?Pome speculators, called the New York and Montana Iron Mining Company,adroit ly engineered through Congress a bill givintr them the exclusive right to take a large and TnluaMe body of mineral landa in Montana Territory at one-?iixteoiitb minimum gover mrnt price required frcm other pre-emptcra. Thia la one of the many scheme* for robbing the government and the people which our radi cal Congressmen and leginlalor* are in the habit of rnvoring. The present Congreee is rivalling the corrupt Legislature of New York in such jobs. The principal engineer In the Senate of this Montana job, it is reported, was Hen Wade, one of the chiefs of the radical party and a man who is most bitter in liia de nunciation of President Johnson and every other conservative man in the country. The loud-mcu hed and violent radicul Puritans are always the first in such schemes. It is always thns in revolutionary tim ?* when extreme fkctlntis attain the ascendancy In public affairs. The lenders talk loudly of humanity, virtue and the public good, while at the same time they are gsilly of the groaeest condnot. Such demoralisation teems to be Incident to periods of great domeatlo convulsions aud revolution*, and unhappily we do not escape from lt> The President will intensify the hostility of tho corrupt fkction controlling Congress by hi* v*to of the bill; but he will have the satisfaction of knowing lust be has done his duty to the country. This bill, as ho saj*, traa but the precursor of a systsm of land distribution to i privileged oUas, and bo has had the patriotism and oouraga to veto It in spite of the hostility bo may provoke. It lo fortunate there is a breakwater somewhere to stem the torrent of oorruptioa that now ' threatens the country. I The Summer Season at the Watering Plaeoe. Prom present appearances this will be the most brilliant season that our watering places have ever seen. The war is over; there is no danger of a financial crisis; everybody has plenty of money and all the world is going out of town. The warm weather of the past few days has inaugurated the exodus. City residences are being shut np and the adver tisements of country board art the best read artioles in the papers. At Saratoga the season has already opened aQd its glories will culmi nate during the excitement of the race week. Unlike Newport, with its beautiful cottages; Long Branch and Cape May, with their ocean bathing, and all of our otbor watering places, Saratoga is a transient resort Nearly every body goes there; but it is only to stay a week or two while travelling tp or from other summer haunts. This and the burn ing of one hotel a year and the drinking of medicinal waters are the peculiarities of the place, which is the Bath oi this conn try, as Newport is the Brighton. Within a fortnight at latest Saratoga and all the other retreats will be in full blast. The waiters, now so very polite, will then do nothing if not bribed. The landlords, now cordially welcoming their guests, will then be engrossed in the manufac ture of long bills. We presume that Ibere wil\ be the same bH<] cookery and bad wines, the same impoliteness and inattention, the earns flirtation and dissipation and a greater rush and crowd than ever. There toro so many watering places in the Uuiled States, and they are ull eo naturally or artificially attractive, that we cannot be mis taken in anticipating the time when Europeans will come over hero to spend their fa<hionablo recess or vacation, instead of;*oing to tbeirown old resorts, of which they are getting pretty thoroughly tired. In a few years, when half a dozen English lines are running from Liverpool to New Ifork, half a dozen French lines from various ports to this city, and half a dozen German lines Irom the free ci tes of Europe to the freer cities of the United States, there will be a tremendous influx of visitors every year, who will patronize our watering places during the summer and return when the wcathor grows cool. Just as crowds of Americans rush over to Europe now so crowds of Europeans will rush over to America thon. We have grandor and more beautiful sceuery than Europe; the recent war has given us that historical interest which we previously lacked, and as the number of lines of stcumers is increased the expense of a trip to this country will be proportionately diminished. We hoped at one time that Ameri can steamers would take the lead in this matter ?nd reap the bent fits ot the increasing travel; but It is now evident that Congress cures nothing for our O 'ean lines, a id that, by tho general cousonl of our officials, our repre sentatives and our merchants, England and I rauce are to be left to rule the sous between tbcin. But no matter who owns the steamers, the Europeans will certainly come: There is so muoh to eeo here; our white, red, blue and hot sulphur springs have such medicinal virtues; our mineral waters are so varied and so efficacious and life at our watering places is so delightful, in spite of many little hotel unnoyanc.w-wblrh will soon be reformed, now thai such landlords as Stetson, of the Astor, who has opened a hotel at Loug Branch, aro taking the field that before very long Bath, Brighton, Vichy, Badcu Baden and all the European resorts will be comparatively deserted in our favor. While the landlords look forward to this golden future there is quite enough to make them complacent in the greenbacked present. Never before were there ho many woulthy peo ple in this country, and never before wore so many persons desirous to be considered fash ionable. The men who made money during tho war have now learned how to spend it liberally, and their wives and daughters count upon the watering place season as a grand field-day for the display of thoir charms, the r dresses and tfolr nowly acquired gentility. Beside* this, the Southerners, wno used to l?e the best patrons of tho sum mer hotels, are beginning to reappear among us. The despotism of the rebel lion did not deprive them of all ?heir gold, nor was tt|i their cotton burned by t'on tederate soldiers. They rorne with a great deal ? >t the old style and the new paper currency. Tho poorest of them are able to live at first class houses, and before the season is over they will be found as oxtrav.igaut as of yore. They have very much to learn in the way of fashion. There are mysteries of crinoline, of hair and of trimming which did not not run the blockade, and ran only bo acquired by association with Northern belles and milliners. When this is accomplished we any expect a friendly rivalry between the beauties of the two sections which will give an unusual piquancy to tho season, and the restoration of the national Union will doubtless ha prefigured by numerous matri monial alliances. With the universal exodus of the city population, the advent of thousands of sojourners from the South and the prospect of sn immense European immigration, we can not be wrong in predicting that this season will be the most splendid in the annals of our watering places. Tim Fuukciju. Krr?:rr or th* Nhws mo* Emora.?The failure of the projected Peace Conference in Europe, in combination with the continued monetary depression there, had the effect, with the assistance of tho speculators, of putting up the price of gold yesterday to 160,an advanco of thirteon per cent aince Friday evening. In onr opinion, however, the alarm and diatruat which thU would under ordinary cirounwtancna seem to indicate, is without warrant Thare is nothing to be feared from the threatened war more than we have already felt in the drain of gold to Europe, which ia probably nearly over, aa very soon there a likely to b<> an export demand for our securities, which oiler a more secure as well aa a hotter paying investment than those of any other nation in the world. Moreover, war in Germany and Italy would stimulate the demand for our breadstuff's without impairing our mar ket for cotton, and this country wonld thrive upon the national calamities of the belligorenta. The tide of immigration toward* our shore* would at Um same Ume be quickened and i aa ImpulM given to dome*tlo industry, while, m ear monej market b entm>"V separated from gold, it is free from foreign influenoea. Gold b ? oommodltj the prioe of which b dependent upon the same causes m regulate the price of anything elee; and, although we wish to see it lower, the higher H goes the more it will stimulate exports and check importations. The main danger we see in the recent rapid advance of j the premium b that it may give rise to a fever ot speculation, baaed upon the old idea of cur rency inflation, which will carry prions far higher than we have any desire to see them. American credit abroad b being greatly benefited by the heavy shipmenta of coin from thb side; and while war seems to be considered inevitable it b noticeable that financial prospects are improving in England and that it was generally considered there that the actual outbreak of hostilities would be a relief In monetary quarters and promote a recovery of prioeB, instead of pro ducing ftirther depression. We are disposed to take a similarly hopeful view of affairs, but in any case this country b likely to gain more than it cau lose by such a war as now threatens the Old World. Ta* Blocks d* la Oar Streets. The complete jam which has existed in Broadway and the principal streets In the lower part ot the city during the last three or four days furnishes conclusive proof of the neces sity of providing additional facility for travel, by widening some of the streets. Broadway, from Chambers street down, has been constant-' ly packed with vehicles of all classes, often matting it necessary for a cart and omnibus to remain at a standstill for hall an hour at a time. As to tioss ng that slrcot, it has been almost an impossibility during many hours of the day. Nor has thb jsm and ciush of vehicles been con fined ulone to Broadway. The adjacent streots on both sides liaro been almost as bad, while several of the cross streetB have, if anything, been worse blockaded than Broadway. The loss to tho business interest of this city by this delay and detention will in a short time be suf ficient to cover the entire expense of providing sufficient room by widening some of tho princi pal streets to the extent necessary to obviate the whole difficulty. It is high time that steps wore taken to pro vide against this evil, which is daily increas ing. The entire business community are in terested in it. It something is not done the time is not far distant when the blookadc in all the principal streets down town will become a serious impediment to the business of tho me tropolis. Lower Broadway or some of the streets parallel to it should be widened and also two or throo of the cross streets running toward the lorries. We care not which of the cross streets are takcD, whether it is Fulton or some other; but that Additional room tor vehi cles is demanded must be admitted by every oue. The only thing required is that those streets should be widoued which by their loca tion wr furnish the greatest relief with the least expense to the city. The sooner tho work ia done the bettor it will be and the less will be the cost. The absurd project of cutting off the stoops of the houses in Filth avenue has now, no doubt, served its purpose, and our city authorities should turn their attention to the urgent de mand of the city in the business portion. As to the Fifth avenue scheme, we doubt very much if there ever was any very serious intention to pass it. The City Hall plotters saw that there were several very highly respectable and elderly gcntl -men on that avenuo who could lio easily frightened, aud the scheme whs pro posed in the boiiefthut by working upon their fears they could be, to use the phra3c of the lobby, made to "come-down." The sohemo was nursed, several public meetings held to give the parlies a hearing, and this kept up until the respectable gi .itlemon of Fifth avenue were worked up to the right pitch. This accom plished, a private meeting was held, at which were sev< ral of these elderly and respectable i residents of Fifth avenuo. The stoop question was no doubt amicably settled for this year, or until this Common Council expires ind a new one Is elected, when they too will look around fur somebody to "come down." Taking the expe rience of their predecessors as their guide, they too will be anxious to remove the stoops in Fifth avenue. We are surprised that a certain Mejor of this city should bite at this bait so readily. Having been a Mayor of tbc city and rubbed up against the politicians aronnd the City Halt for two years, we should Lave supposed that he would have known enough to have seen through these trleks. But, as to the other highly respectable eidorly gentlemen who bare-1 taken part in this business and were closeted with the committee, we are not at all surprised at their course. They belong to the Citizens' Association, and it U only on a par with all the proceedings or that singular association. Nothing else conldbe expected of men connect ed with it These respectable gentlemen having been attended to, now let as have something done that will bring practical relief to the over crowded streets in the lower part of the city. Out Toadtino Foiibios Pouct.?We again nek Mr. Secretary Sewanl or Mr. Secretary Welles, whichever of these gentlemen ha* the document in hia keeping, to produce the official statement of Captain Walker, of the De Soto, concerning the outrage committed by the Brit ish gunboat Dulldog at Cape Hayticn. The public want to know the nature of the offence and all the circumstances relating to It. Cap tain Walker undoubtedly forwarded a state ment of the affair to the Navy Department, as in dnty bound, and unless Mr. Wellea baa fallen asleep and forgotten where he laid it, It must be available somewhere In the pnbllc archives. The whole spirit of our foreign policy appears to be diverging very rapidly Into toadyism. Mr. Seward seems only to think of keeping on good terms with all foreign nations and taking care of their interests all over the world, re gardless of what is due to the dignity of this great nation. England, it would appear. Is his special ward, over whom he has estublisbed himself na a faithful old ?guardy." Although the United States have arisen from the Are of the late civil war the greatest coun try on the globe, our foreign policy la weaker, more contemptible, and tnoro vacillating to day than it ever was before. Even England, wblcb, under the management of old and weak minded statesmen has fallen from tha position of a leading power to that ot a second or third rate powor, can afford to laugh at the toadyism that rules in our State Department, and does I not hesitate to use It for her own purposes. We remember that when Mr. Seward was on 1 hU late four through the Antilles and that. region lie spoke of these outlying islands and the republics of South and Central America m the bulwarks ot this great republic; but alae' even these little petty States despise Mr' Seward's vacillating policy, disregard our power nnd pay no attention to our bo anted Monroe doctrine, for tbey are fsvoring a league to support Maximilian in Mexico. If the ooa duet of the Secretary of State does not ma terially change, the " bulwarks" will be apt to turn their guns the other way, and Instead of a protection, become a menses. Seriously, the policy of the State DeperO ment is entirely unworthy the dignity of a great nation like ours, which should lead aai not follow the diplomacy of the world. Ik Is a poor figure to present, that of playing the pact of police guard over n British colony, tempo* izing with France upon the Austrian usurpa tion in Mexico, dilly-dallying with the liVffMTh government about our olaims for the destruc tion of American commerce on the high eeaa and permitting Spain to bombard uaanasd ports in South America. Upon all these points Mr. Seward may ho assured that the people re quire a more firm action and are becoming clamorous for an entire change in our foreign policy. To begin with, let us have the documents concerning the Bulldog outrage, without delsg. Ubitnsrjr. HON.
