They hare been a long time about it, but they have hit It at last. They have l'ound out that their copperhead leaders lead them only to defeat, and so the party, in solemn State Convention assembled, have taken a new departure. They have dropped Vallandigham and all his tribe and have drawn upon the Union army of the war for their standard bearer, and General Rosecrans is their man for next Governor of Ohio. It seems that this foreward movement was not made without a stubborn resistance, but that even the powerful name of Pendleton was vainly brought into the convention to head off the Union hero of | Murfreesboro. This is very remarkable, in view of the fact that during the war, us a rebel sympathizer, Vallandigham. from Ihirnside's military court in Ohio, was sent under guard to Rosecrans in Tennessee, and by him j passed over to the Southern confederacy, | where it waa thought said Vallandigham properly belonged; but the change of front in question is not so remarkable, in view of anothe- fact, that on returning from the South Vallandigham was made the democratic candidate for Governor of Ohio, only to be beaten by a hundred thousand majority. We incliue to the opinion, however, that Mr. Vallandigham and his followers will cheerfully support this new movement of the Ohio democracy. With all his copperhead crotchets he is a democrat of progressive ideas: and we think he has mastered this difficult problem to the Bourbon, that there has been a deluge which has changed the face of the whole political world. At all events, General Rosecrans is a strong candidate and will be hard to beat. His military record, down to his disastrous day at Chickamauga, is one of the most brilliant of the half dozen leading Union generals of the war. That day at Chickamauga, however, ended his military career. But still ills grear services in lae neiu were not lorgoiten, for when nominated for the Mexican mission by President Johnson he was promptly confirmed by the Senate as a recognition of the deserving soldier, patriot, gentleman and scholar. From this point we may date the political flowering out of General Rosecrans, in his volunteer diplomatic mission to the famous j constellation of generals of the hite Southern I confederacy, assembled last summer at the j , Virginia White Sulphur Springs. His con- j ] dilatory negotiations with those generals j i placed him by common consent en rapport ! with the grand national democratic reunion in j Tammany Hall. His recall from Mexico by President Grant, we presume, has, from the political laws of gravitation, landed General Rosecrans a full fledged democrat once more in Ohio. His nomination, we say, is a hit as a new departure for the Ohio democracy. It relieves them of the stigma of copperheadism, and in spiking that radical gun they guin, perhaps, not less than thirty thousand votes. In the new democratic platform Bet up for General Rosecraus there is not much of general imnortance that is new. The nartv in Ohio adhere to the3e doctrines?that the government bonds ought to be taxed; that the bondholders in their redemption ought to be satisfied with greenbacks ; that a high protective tariff serves only to enrich New England manufacturers ; that each State should regulate the elective franchise for itself, and that the fifteenth amendment is subversive of the principles of the federal constitution, as if an amendment, good or bad, could have any other purpose than to change the constitution. The Convention further declares that the radical policy is tending to a consolidated despotism ; that our national banking system (Mr. Chase's) is one of the worst outgrowths of the bonded debt, and that the doings of the military commissions in Texas, under President Grant, "arc violations of the most sacred rights of American citizens,"' Ac. The issue, then, in Ohio is sharply drawn against the administration; but, strangely enough, Cuba, Mexico and the Alabama claims are left out. But to sum up*:?The nomination of General Rosecrans, of itself, is a great step forward by the Ohio democracy. It falls far behind the forward movement of the Virginia conservatives, but it is still a movement in the same direction; and in the same direction, it will doubtless soon appear, all the opposition fnrn.AR nf tlif* nminlrv arp drifting In uhnrt the elements of a new political revolution are forming, and while the administration is resting upon its oars the wide-awake democracy, instructed by many defeats, may shape their tactics to some purpose, in view of the approaching fall elections, not only in Ohio, but throughout the North. Indicia) Independence and Dignity. In the Court of General Sessions yesterday City Judge Bedford sentenced John Howard, a sailor, who was jointly indicted with Thomas Brenr.an and Willium Valley, alias "Reddy the Blacksmith," for participation in the robbery perpetrated in the liquor saloon of Varley, in Chatham square, some time since. Brenuan has been sent to the State Prison for a term of fifteen ycurs, but Varley, as is known, has not been made amenable to the law. Strict but discriminating in his administration of justice Judge Bedford drew a carefully marked line of distinction between the case of Howard and that of Brennan?the one a seaman in a drink ing frolic, and the other an ex-convict, and, as described by the District Attorney, "a notorious thief and the associate of cutthroats"?and in consequence ordered Howard to the State prison for a term of five years, the lowest known to the statute in such a case, at the same time reviewing his case fully, giving him i some excellent advice, and announcing that he would himself intercede with the Governor for his pardon. The Assistant District Attorney supported the Court. For such action the radical press of New York assails Judge Bedford with its usual braymouthed violence, attributing political motives j and considerations, and criticising his decision like party hacks who acknowledge no law. MSW YORK HKliALD 1 except it coincide with their rule of fanatic organization.

The Crista in Frnnee?The Kntperor Yielding to Popular Demand. The cable despatches which we print this morning, taken in connection with those which we gave yesterday, show that the recent elections are already bringing forth fruit. The F.mperor has made up his mind to grant constitutional reforms. The reforms point in the direction of a government by responsible Ministers. The Emperor has given up the ide/i of continuing the system which has lasted since the coup d'itat?a system which has vested ail the governing power in himself, and made what seemed a parliament only a mockery and a sham. It appears from our latest despatches that since the decision of the Emperor became known very considerable excitement has prevailed in political circles, and great anxiety has been manifested to know what class of men should be called upon to act with the Emperor in organizing the new government. Rumor has it that great difficulties are being experienced; but the presumption is thut the Ministry will be a kind of compromise, composed of men selected from the ranks of the radical minority and from a certain section of the adherents of the empire. The centre of the opposition, it. seems, insists upon the adoption of the Parliamentary system of England. From the outlines thus furnished it is manifest that a great point has been gained. The Emperor has a better and surer means of ascertaining the sentiments of the French people than are possessed by any other. He knows exactly what France wants and what it is safe to grant. The popular sentiment is stronger and more imperious than it has been at any former time during the history of the empire. But the Emperor knows his strength; and in yielding he acts not as one who is helplessly driven, b??t as one who is thorough master of the situation. Concessions, it is certain, will now be made, but we may rest assured the concessions will be of such a kind that the reins will still be left in the Emperor's own strong and skilful hand. If Parliamentary government and a responsible Ministry are found to work well the Emperor will not be sorry; for a popular government with a Bonaparte at its neau is uie cumax 01 tue emperor 8 am dition. As matters now arc we know that his death would be ruinous to his family. With a Ministry responsible to the Parliament rather than to himself, and the government machine working well, he would have less reason to dread trouble on the occasion of his son's succession. It is not to be denied, however, that if the rumored changes are made in the French government the empire has entered upon a new career. There must be more freedom of speeoh in the Legislative Chamber, and it remains to be seen whether this freedom of speech can be tolerated. If the opposition conducts itself reasonably and well it may yet be Napoleon's privilege to crown the edifice by combining a strong executive with a free and unfettered Parliament. If the opposition abuses its power the alternatives are anarchy or absolutism. The Tebuanteper Railroad. The growth of the commercial interests on our Pacific shore, stimulated as it iB by the opening of the Pacific Railroad, is awakening attention evervwhere to the need of inereased facilities for transit and the carriage of goods across the isthmuB. Besides the canal project across the Darien route French capitalists are pushing the Nicaragua Canal question, English interests are stimulating the construction of the Honduras Railroad, and American capitalists hare turned their attention to the Tehuantepec route. Valuable concessions have recently been added by the Mexican Congress to the original grant for the Tehuantopec Railroad, and we learn that the operations of the company will soon be pushed with activity. This route is the nearest of all the isthmuB routes to our own territory, and, therefore, merits attentive consideration at our hands. The eastern terminus lies in the Gulf of Mexico, within easy sail of our shores, and there is no reason why goods from New York should not be placed, by the Tehuantepec route, in seven days on the shore of the Pacific. All that we need to enable our city to attain its due share in the rising commerce of that great ocean is an increase of the facilities of access. Let the Tehuantepec Railroad bo built at once. It cannot be opened a day too soon. Proposed Assassination of the Cuban Minister.?One of the city morning papers has a special from Washington to the effect that the Spanish volunteers in Havana propose to open a subscription to pay for the assassination of Reilor Morales Lemus, the envoy of President Cespedes in the United States. The idea is a good one on the part of the volunteers if it iB their wish to help Cespedes and the Cuban cause; but we hardly think that was their intention. We suggest to them that they can do a great deal better with their money by offering a reward for the capture of the Cuban envoy's papers. Soma of our smart detectives could soon put up such a job and make a good showing for the Spanish gold. It Will Not Do.?It is given out that, according to the interpretation of General Canbv of the reconstruction test oath rtnn. gress, less than a quorum of the members just elected to the Virginia Legislature will be qualified to take their seats ; and that if Attorney General Iloar shall giro an opinion sustaining General Canby there will probably have to be a new election. This dodge will not do; for we have no doubt that General Grant will consider the late Virginia election sufficiently conclusive to let it stand, Legislature and all. nil DAY, JULY 9, 1869. The fuming Election* In This 8t?t? and City?'Tammany llall f unfldont and Defiant. The Run is hot. The fields are green. The seaside ie luxurious. But as fierce an are the rays of the bud, as beautiful as are the lawuu of the country and as soothing as are the solemn surges at the seaside, the politicians keep at their Sisypheian labors. Many of them hare gone from town, but even at Long Branch, at Saratoga, at Newport, at the lovely Highlands of Navesink, amid the wholesome atmosphere of the pleasure resortB of the interior, coteries ure busily engaged in arranging the schedules for the coining fall elections in this State. Crossing the Atluntic, possibly you might find at Baden-Baden, at Wiesbaden, at Brighton, at Bath, at the crack summer centres of the royal households of Great Britain, France, Russia, Prussia, Austria and wherever else the golden eagles of America, carrying upon their precious wings the fame of prominent American statesmen and millionnaires, are recognized as the pioneers of American wealth, Americau talent, American position and American genius, even there, if you look closely and carefully, yon will discover some American political Bismarck arranging his slate for the coming fall election in the Empire State of America. It may seem strange that the dispensation of the official pap of this State has such extensive ramifications ; but it is nevertheless true; for it is by that pap, that pabulum, many of the most distinguished Americans abroad are enabled to enjoy those costly luxuries indulged in by few except tho crowned head% of the Old World and their innumerable satellites. King Tammany, whose lodgings are in this city, sways the sceptre in this grand kingdom of official plunder and pabulum. Whatever he wills is won. Whenever he deignB to sneeze no political aspirant dares to snooze. Let King Tarn many frown, and the victim is down. Let him smile, and he lives. Great is King Tammany, and his profits are reckoned from mills to millions, all paid by thai easy-going but sometimes obstinate institution called the taxpayer. The sums annually appropriated and expended for the government of the city of New York alone are equal to the revenue of many a kingdom and principality. It is no wonder, then, that there should be so many rapacious office-seekerB among us. Unfortunately it is not always tho honest man who succeeds in obtaining official position. The temptation is so great and the examples of official peculation so illustrious that even the most righteous and conscientious are led to err and be gathered in the fold of the knavish and unscrupulous. Now is the time, then, for the true men of the gitv and the State to prepare themselves for the State election in November and the municipal election in December next. An entirely new Legislature is to be chosen, Senate and House, throughout. Most of the judges of the different courts are to be elected?either a reinstatement ot the present incumbents or the substitution of other, and, it is to be expected, better men. The State will not elect a Governor in place of Governor Hoffman, who has proved himself to be a good and worthy executive, but a majority of the other State offices are to be chosen. It is a mooted question whether there will be an election for Mayor of the city at the coming charter election, the impression becoming general that Mayor Hall, who was elected to fill the unexpired term of Governor Ilotfrnan, is entitled to his full two years' tenure of office. But this is a mere technical point about which judges may disagree and lawyers squabble; for Mayor Hall, if the necessity arises, would not only be renominated by the democracy, but re-elected by an overwhelming majority. The county will have to elect three supervisors, two by the expiration of their terms of office and one to fill a vacancy. Of the score or so of district judges to be elected the republicans think they can carry about four. A surrogate is also to be elected in place of Mr. Tucker, who has filled the office acceptably for six years. A bright and popular young man named Hutchings, Assistant District Attorney, is named as TuckerB successor. The City Judgeship will rest in the hands of the able young gentleman who now discharges the duties of the office with so much honor to himself and service to the community, Judge Bedford. The great effort among the politicians is to secure fho nrnninnfinn nf thf?ir ffivnritA nn.m1?<1fifur the Legislature, and to that end wire-pulling, private bargains, "tickle me and I'll tickle you" operations are going on, not only in the wards and districts, but, as wo have intimated, at the watering placeB at home and abroad. The temperance men and the liquor dealers will have a contest of unusual vigor and interest, as the teetotalers arc organizing all over the State and are determined to be not osly prohibitory, but proscriptive. All we have to ask is that King Tammany will exercise his tremendous influence to send honest men to Albany and to see that the judicial ermine remains untainted and unsullied. Then the next year we may again rejoice in a benign sun gladdening emerald fields and pastures new. ? Our Three fix-Presidents ? Natters and Thine* Political. Through a Herald commissioner, in each case, the opinions at the present day on our political affairs of ex-President Fillmore, exPresident Pierce and ex-President Johnson have been made known to the world. Mr. Fillmore, almost unknown to the public, has quietly passed from the glittering generalities of Know Nothingism to the thirty-nine articles of the democratic creed, and he may probably turn up next time as the most available democratic candidate for Governor of New York. We can't tell. We don't know what may happen in these days from one day to another in the ups and downs and ins and outs of our fluctuating politicians and shifting politico, parties. We are sorry to learn, however, that Mr. Fillmore thinks there is "danger that the government will become an oligarchy or politicians." Anything but that, If yon love us; anything but an oligarchy of politicians, though we are not sure that the government has ever been anything else. Ex-President Pierce has become a democratic philosopher. Having nothing any longer to do in the business of party politics he has but j littlo to sav. He has settled down into ' the qiiiot life of absolute retirement from the fights of our political gladiators, though Btill no doubt a strong believer in the Kentucky resolutions of '96 and '99. And one is a hundred, or a thousand, or anything you please with him in the petty party squabbles of the hour. We aro glad to report that he uoi-B not uespair 01 tue repuouc, una uao nothing to say against either of his successors in the White JlouBe?Buchanan, Lincoln, Johnson or Grant. A philosopher and a courteous and amiable gentleman iB ex-President Pierce. Ex-President Johnson is a sorrel horse of another color. He likes to be in hot water, and he has not yet had his satisfaction out of the radicals, or Congress or General Grant. And so he ha9 given us his opinion of General Grant without mincing or wincing. We say, as a Tennessee doctor once said to a patient, " i'ou lmvp been very sick, my friend; but now, wilh all thnt vlllanous bile off your stomach, you are sure to feel better." We regret none the less the opinion of Mr. Johnson that we are drifting to an imperial despotism, which, though not quite so contemptible, is almost as bad as Mr. Fillmore's "oligarchy of politicians." Our ex-Presidents who still live are three, thauk God?Fillmore, Pierco and Johnson. We have a certain liking for Fillmore; we cannot help but admire certain things in Pierce; but as a nover-say-die sort of man, we have a special weakness for Andy Johnson. There ure nine stout meu in that one chunky tailor. Tub Central National Bank of this city has sustained a heavy loss by official defalcation or robbery, just as the lapsus may come to be classed in law. The President states that the loss does not "eaceed" one hundred thousand dollars, which he evidently rates as a small sum after the Ocean Bank affair. Unfortunately, however, it is the cash of the de positors of tho banks which disappears for the most part on such occasions. TROTTIttf AT IBK DA.OA (ODRSK. A trotting match for $1,0.hi, mile heats, best three in Ave, in harness, came orr yesterday afternoon at the Union Course between W. McMuhon's white gelding White Horse and It. Walter's bay gelding Now York, which was won by White Horse in four heats. The winner of the race is a horse that has done a great deal of trotting around the country, and made a good trot at Newburg a few weeks ago. He was brought to McMahon's stable, where lie was passed off as a hack, and by this dodge he was matched against New York, the latter also being what is generally denominated "a sleeper." The race was made play 01- pay, ruin or shine, and both of the contracting parties Imagined that they lnul "sure things." Before the horses were taken to the track, however, their character and antecedents were pretty well ventilated, und betting set in strong, at first at even, but afterwards largely in lavor of White Horse.

The bay broke up badly soon afterwards, and he did not settle squarely to his work afterwards. The white horse won the heal by four lengths la 2:47. Third I/eat.?There were no otters to bet on the race, the Impression being that tue white horse' could not lose It, burring accidents.

[Washington (July 8) Correspondence of Evening Pout.] A quarrel has been going on for some time between certain members of the Indian l'cace Commission, Commissioner Parker and Secretary Cox, which at one time assumed a very serious aspect, but through t he decision of President Grant an open rupture was averted and the affair partially arrangod. Thus far the matter has been kept secret from the public. it appears that after the appointmont of this commission bv President Grant certain members. Including Wllilam Welch, Its president, maintained that the commission was not merely an advisory body, bui possessed, under the law, executive power, and that all moneys appropriated by Congress to be distributed among the Indians and to carry into effect the law which created tno Board ought properly to puss Into their hands and not to the Indian Bureau. Secretary Cox and Commissioner Parker took the opposite ground, saying that If this construction was placed upon the law they would ho nothing more than mere clerks, and t ongross certainly never Intended this. Considerable reeling seems to be manilested by one or two iueinb"r* of the commission, who prepared a confidential letter addressed to their asso' dates, In which both .secretary Cox and Commissioner Parker were assailed In not very coiupluncutury terms. Finally President Grant was appealed to, and heisustalued the views of ."Secretary Cox and Commissioner J'arker, that the commission was merely an advisory body, not vested with executive power. An interchange of views between the members of the commission disclosed ihat ill !...t fits#! I..,....l...ru wawi in fuvnr nf ucliiur In ?#. cordance witti the interpretation placed upon the law hv the President and his Cahinct, to whom the question was submitted. This not being satisfactory to Mr. Welch, the president of the commission, and Mr. Campbell, of Missouri, they tendered their team nations to the President, who promptly accepted them. It Is understood that Hie President will not All these two vacancies, for the present, at least. The commission leave next week for the Indian country on an extensive tour of observation. The country has been cut up into three districts, and the commission so divided that each district can l>? visited at the sauic time by one or more members. fOJ.I.Ef.E COTITIEKETIEXrS.
