Tke Meeting ol the Tain ma wy funeral Caw.
anitiee?Netilenient of the Quarrel Over
fomented Seait-The Inntlidalee tar Noini allows.
The long anxiously looked forward to mooting ot the
kmou; tleoeral Committee awe of! Thursday night.
The great magnates of the party put tu an appearance m
great strength, and the Oghtmg elements were not wantIng
to make a bold front. It was hoped that a pro
gramme would be laid doom to restore harmony and ,
bind together by uea of a common interest the diacordaat
elemente tbet are at praaont giving eueli infinity of
trouble to the "rtug." The business of the mealing was
principally to eettle the question of the couteeled sents
af delegates to tbo Tammany convention soon to be
held. As much depends upon the delegates from the
various wards with regard to tba making of a slate lor
candidates, there was, as w.ght be expected, a warm
contest in some wards, and two sets of delegates
were appointed. To eetlla the question as to the deleealtw
orooerl* stecieo wis the nhiec.t cl the meeting
of the Gensral Commute? last night. The ?uh.committee
appointed to investigate tl>e matter hal prepared
thetr report, end la t evening subni.it'*d it lite Third,
Fifth, Eighth, Tenth, Thirteenth, tifie.-nth, Eighteenth
end Twenty-second ?aid delegations were contested in
pert. Some compromises wore effbeted, hut the ruling
powers managed to secure s sufficient number of thick
end tlitn supporters to encourage tbem in making a slate
according to tlieir own news, and for ilietpecisl beneiit of
the "ring." In the i'ifth ward Colonel Michael Murphy
got the best of George M. < urtis; Michael Norton, a candidate
for .-enator in the Kiftb district, secured the
K gbth ward over lielavan. Judge Gale overthrew
Samuel T. Webster ia the Tonlb; the Thirteenth ward
waa given to Councilman Thomas Brady, against Thomas
H Feme In the Kighteenth ward John J. Bradley got
the best of Robert f. Hatchings, which probably secures
for the former the Senatorial nomination. This waa
about all tbe business done. But one thing was dls- I
closed, and that is that ex-Congre<stuan John Fox will I
not surrender hie olaimi to the shrievalty. A deadlock |
la thus put in the wheels of tbe Tammanv machine
that it was hoped woeld be avoided. But Fox in res ohile,
sad tbe ring ie again in a fit of tbe queudarie* over
the state. Tweed, bis principal hacker, is anxious to
* get him oat of the wey; but as yet no salve, anything
like the fifty thousand dollars a'year, the pickings of
tbe Shrievalty, has been offerod. and Fox is immovable.
Tweed, too, ia in e fix as to tbe Senator-ship In tbe
Fourth Senatorial district, and oannot afford to fall out
with Fox. A cry is going np that Tweed has too many
good things, and that bo is not to bo tbo recipient of any
more if tbo young rising men, tbo bono and sinew of
what Is loft ot the party, can prevent it. A forced
change in the programme was made a (Vvr days
ago, and which at the time was thought would work
well, inasmuch m tbo parties most inlawed in tbo
Batter appear to give aa-eat to it. It was this: Turnmany
began to get nervous over tbo Shrievalty, and
looked with eyes of apprehension upon the bulkv aud
threatening form of tbo ill* Judi'e, Mirbae! Connolly, tbo
nominee of the democratic L'mou party, their opponent
for that fat office. A fresh toss of the political teacup
and another shuttle of the prophetic card* hy the crones
of the ring, and, sure enough, like the Irish woman's
dhrames that always go by contrar es, who turns up
for Fhertff hut Alderman James O" Bricn, their hitherto
candidate tor County Clerk. Then was there wagging
of beads aud gleei.-h chuckling that the fates had at
la t given them the rgfct man The proposition to
chan o was made to >lr. O'Brien, and he unwillingly
assented, he having asked for pedges of support
from his friends in case he got the nomination
for County lerk only, however, If Fox aud
bhaanon were willing to agree to ret re their
claims upon thp Shrievalty, he had no objection to be
put in nomination it orofor. This being once amicably
Mttled, I.new, to secure the German interest, tho Irish
clement being secured by the n im.n.nlou of their
favorite, was to get the nomination of county Clerk.
Bat "the best laid schemes t>' in c an.l men gang nft
a-gley." So this boptiu. pr igramuie wad tendered futile
by the recusancy of Fox, who will not he comforted
unless he gets the nomination for She rift. And this is
the dilemma the ring >1 placed In Hut another candidate
la promised by the Mozart party that threatens to uiake
confusion in the Tamruany camp worso confounded.
The Mo/arters are really becoming a power in the cily
ore more, and their whole end and situ, as their leaders
assert. Is to annihilate their old ally .'Tammany, and
particularly tho Grand t-'acbeui thereof. The Mo.
tartars have chosen as tl.clr ctndl lam for Sheriff,
as against both lammnnv and the ( ooprr Institute deaaocracy,
Judge Thomas K:v!iu, of the Mxlh ward, civil
Justice of the lower district, and formerly a member of
the l egislature, always nn energetic and active adherent
of the Mozart party in p.aat times. Use Mozarters calcaN

The republican party have not set bestirred thein elvee
in the contest, and, so far as the Mayoralty m rmneernel,
it it positively Mated that the late candidate,
Marshall O. Roberts, ebo ia considered the strongest man

The Kepnblii'nn Convention and Malf
Ticket? Prospective Kow In the Democratic
Con vent inn?Wnr to the Death Declared
Against the Albany Regency.
SaiutoOA, Sept. 5, 1867.
Tou would hardly think what glimpses of the political
world are aiTord'-d one who keeps hi* eye* and ears open
at Saratoga. Whlla mammae aud daughters drink ths
waters and flirt and gossip aud indulge in lbs other
frivolities of fashionable life, papus and husbands, hetwo
n the sips of the.r brandy aud water and the pull's
of their e\gars, discuss and settle the affairs of
the State and nation. Saratoga ia a sort of
political Stock Exchange, where yon can get. at any
time daring the fashionable season, tire quotations on
market values of ths principal candidates. Here yoa
may draw aside lbs curtain, as did the witches in iiacbetb,
and behold the lino of "tho succession.1' All of
which brings n?' to tell yon something of what the politicians
are d dag here, or rather have been doing, for
the chill winds of autumn are beginning to sigh among
the trees, and the spota which knew the slate makers
know them no longer. All, or nearly all, are gone?all
aave Thurlow, the Wolsoy of hie party, who conies to
ruminate amid tho scones where he was once tho ooblast
Roman of them all.
The political campaign has iieen entered upon without
repair of the breach between ths two factions of the re
publican party. Not that their differences will enter
into the constitution of tho Stato ticket to be nominated
on the 25th iust. at Syracuse. The offices to
be Oiled at the next election are not of
such great importance as to bs worth tho struggle,
but the breach will be so effectually widened by next
year that it will hare an important hearing upon the
Presidential campaign. This quarrel entered tho last
Sluto election, when, such was tho anitnus of Iburlow
Weed and his party, that at lesst twenty thousand republican
votos wore diverted from tho regular re
publican Stats ticket, which strategy came very near
defeating Governor Fenton. The same feeling entered
the last Legislature, and was even an is-ne .in the
election of United Mates Senator. It also eutored the
prweui i>uni<uluuuuai vuutcuuum anu iiui:iiivm?u hbhi
m early as tho time of appointment of tbe committees?
the struggle iu tills instance be.ng in particular on tho
oaual questions. Since that time the animus of both
factions hua been quite latent, so far as any rhetorical
demonstrations are ooncemod, but the private intrigues
and bargaius with the balance-of-power-lioldlng democrats
are plainly obvious. ?o bitter baa tbls variety of
aeniluient become that 1 thing 1 am hazarding little m
prophesying that New York Rtato will send two rival republican
delegations to the National Convention of J808.
Tbe two prominent candidate for the Presidency with
tbe party are, of course, General Grant and thief Justice
Chose. Tbe policy or the more radical wing, as has been
intimated to me, will be to nominate a man of undoubted
radical aonliments, but one wtioeO popularity has not
been impaired by any really verv extreme language or
measures. A military man is not neceaaarv to insure
tbe success of the ticket, and hence Grant Is not for an
instant tboucni of?tbat is by tbe radicals. Let me
analyze the feeling morn closely. The party In tbis
State, take it man for man, Is about evenly divided tor
and against tbe claims of General Grant. A majority
could, howev r. be easily won over avainst him. Not
more than a tblnt ar? really nod earnestly In favor of
Ins choice as a candidate The remainder or tbo half
think his nomination expedient, and the other half aro
fully and unequivocally con,milled against mm,
and for ionic politician. The radicals are deterluined
t > aele t no mnn who lias any stain
upon his escutcheon of pari v. rant was a democrat.
Ho may be really .so still. He will not malce any pledges
and will not be a party man. lognn, Butler and liko
eonrerta from the democratic faitb have as little chance
of radical favor In the matter of Iho Presidency the
radical cry Is, "Auf C,rtar, au' na/liM." The followinf
little clrciilar has been issued and circulated <y the opponents
of General Grant. I feel very certain its origin
might be traced to the political club bouse In Seven,
teenih street, on I'mon square. It is important as one
of the first manlfe'tjea ef the anti-Grant faction of tba
republicans ?

the telegram by declaring his uuwillingness to use the

Subsequently General Barry, who was at Buffalo, telegraphed

tiie frontier, be had nothing 10 do with it. Vast political
capital has been made out of the ;o facta for the Governor
in ttie pro-em canvass of candidates for the Vice Presidential
nomination, and it is pretty certain that all the
Irish repuollcane in the contention will cast their influence
for Mr. Fern on.
But ha has played another trump card in the Constitutional
Convention. You remerabtr the Senatorial
Canal Invostlgatng Committee appointed last winter.
The revelations of that body, so damaging to the canal
"ring," might have beau withheld a while longer, bad
it been pleasing to the Governor. The canal "ring,"
the conferral!ve republicans and lha adherents of cxG'o'.
eruor Morgan are all of the same political kidney.
It is true the Constitutional Convention ca lud for the
report; hot it is equally true that the committee might,
hud thej^l chosen, avoided presenting it I told vou
last wiutor how Governor Fonton was going to hold the
investigations of this committee in terror* over the
heads of the faction which opposes him. That laciiou
had soon fit to continue tiie war and nominate Morgan.
The revelations of the rommittoe are bofore the Convention
and i he public. They place tho canal "ring " in
no enviable light
The Now Y >rk radicals will go to the convention of 1868
unpledged as to the Presidency. While desirous of the
choice of Chase they will remain uncommiued in order
if possible to make soino bargain or combination which
will secure the nomination of Fenton. I bey would
throw up ih ir hats in exultation for the joint ticket?
Cha-o tod Fenton. If two delegations?1 speak with confidence
in saving two Uelegat ons, for the signs for tho
tunes polut to such a result of tho present quarrel
boiwecu tho two factions?if two are admitted, ea -li
with a half vote, or if oniy ono delegation is sent, comprising
representatives from ooth factions, the scheming
on tho part of the conservatives will be to aacure the
choice of thu ticket Grant and Morgan, and on the pun
of the radicals to effect the Domination of Chase sud
Fenton. So much for the plots of the republican party
in New York State lor the next Presidential campaign.
As I have already intimated, there will be no quarrol
over tho State ticket to bo made up on tho lioth inst. It
is goaeruliy conceded that the pre-enl incumbents of the
first four oBcea on the ticket will be renominated if
they are willing to accept. Tb.iso arc Secretary of State

A> Arrrm?r to RnrooLi Wwmrer.?Yesterday after- I
noon poiice officer John McRnroe arrested Adam Hess,
P?ter Mcl'on, Bernard Falkner and Mason Loeh, for
assaulting and Interfering wrh bim while In the discharge
of bie duty. PI rested of Its legal verbiage,
McEnroe's statement m tubs tan' tally aa follows:?-The
officer, while parsing by Mason I-orb's distillery, in
Thirty-third street, between Tenth and Eleventh
avenues, saw a Dumber of barrels of whiskey without
tbe brand of the Lolled States inspector on ibera, and
(mm certain movemeots which he noticed was cod.
vlnced thai It was the intention of the parties to so dispose
of the whiskey that the government would be
defrauded of its reveouo. He stated as much to Mason
Loeh, and was by that poraon informed that the be.,t
thing ho could do would bo to mind bis own husincrs.
Not to bo put off, he gut on a truck on which barrels of
this unbonded whiskey had been placed for the purpose
of causing It to bo tali en to the station bouse, when he
was violently as-nulled by Adam Hess, who was lucltod
thereto by his confederate, as be believed him to
be, Peter Mcl'on, with bis cart whip. t-uWquently
McEnroe, ass -ted by otbor officers, arrested the parties
named, and Hesa sad McCon, peuding-an examination,
were held each to bail In tha sum of (300. while Kslk
nor and i.oebjsere d.ac&argea rrom custody.
At noon on the 6th instant tha Swedish friga's Norrhoping
arrived in thta harbor front Quebei and aut hored
in tho North rivor, opposite pier No. 8. The Norrhoping
la a sailing frigate of the old school, of about
1,.T00 tons burden, and earrtea a battery of eighteen
thirty-pounders and four six and a-half Inch guns, all
smooth bore. 8be Is bow need as a son of scbootsbip
for training seamen for the Swedish navy; and included
In her crew of three hundred tneu are one hundred parson?
who have never been at son before. Tbe Swedish
law compels all landownars who posset* land on the seashore
to send a certain Dumber of substliiitas Into the
royal nary, and the seamen now being train?4 on board
thla vessel belong to tbla class.
In tbe middle of July tbe Norrkoping left Sweden,
and passing to the northward of the HriUsh Isles
after a favorable voyage of live weeks she arrived at
Halifa*, N. P. Remaining but Ave days in that harbor,
she lefi for Quebec, and slopped there lor fjurteea days
New York being her nest port of destination, she
dropped down tbe St. Lawrence on Augnst J4 and had
(adorable weather on the voyage to this harbor until
during the last three days, wb:n ahs was htcaJmod the
greater part or tbe Urns.
Although not possessing the graceful lines end proportions
of the naval creations of the present day, and presenting
to the eye the bluff, chunky appear.vuce usual
with sailing frigates or the old class, tbe Norrkoping has
proved herself a very good seaboat. and on several occasions
during her prssoni ocean voyage her log showed
from eleven to thirteen knots nn hour.
Nothing could exceed the cleanliness and netlnc** apparent
e\er> where on board. The brass mountings
shone brightly, and th* declt? and woodwork were as
white a* scouring and brickbat could make them,
so thai a visitor rould scarcely real!/a the fact that she
was only lust cenie into harbor from sea. Pome pretty
flowers which were brought from cwedon were ranged
in pots around the after part of the ship, and seemed
none the wor-e for the sea air.
Neithar the Norrkoping nor any of her officers were
here before, and the attention of the latter wm. very
moch engag"sA during their progress up the harbor, by
the many points of interact that presented them.-en as.
the fortiffcationt and monster gun at tort Richmond
being ap-cialiy not;red.
After a stay here of about a fortnight the Norrkoping
will leavo on liar return voyaga to tJutienherg.
