The weather in How York and its vicinity to-dar will be slighilv Warmer and lair. jsMoblv followed bv inereucing cloudiness: To morrow it promises to be warm and nurily cloudy. The frvr (iovrrnor (!riivr>l< I I ha people of the Dominion are looking forward to the events of the present week with anticipations not uu mingled with care. Ihe preparations which they have made for testifying their joy, their loyalty, the heartiness of their welcome and their en thusiastic attachment to the royal Princess who has come to reside among them are on a scale suitable to the occasion ; but the success of the festivities, and especially of the pageants, depends so much on ac cidents of weather that soma anxiety must be felt nntil it is seen whut the week will bring. A blinding snow storm is not unusual in Canada at this leu son of the year, and it would be unfor tunate it the rough voyage across the At lantic should be followed by the eariy set ting in of a Canadian winter. But the protracted Lad weather of the lust week makes it not improbable that a bright sun and cloudless skies will add lustre to the successive pageants in different cities and mak9 every part of the reception as brill iant and joyous in fact as it is meant to be in intention. I Most assuredly there is nothing of politi cal calculation in the grand demonstrations of welcome which are intended to convert this November week into a brighter holiday season than Canada lias ever witnessed or enjoyed. Tho visit of the Prince of Wules in 1800 was, perhaps, attended with an equal outburst of loyal feeling, and tho season of the year was more propitious for outdoor parades and profuse floral decorations. But in the thronging multitudes in the streets which' form a great part of the spectacle j which they come to wituess ; in the turnout of troops and the display cf flags ; in the i multitude of carriages and extent of caval- [ cades; iu the bright eyes which "rain influ ence," and gloved hands that flutter hand kerchiefs from several stories of windows which line the streets; in the heartiness ot tho glad huzzas which will greet the vice regal couple as they pass, the receptions of I860 will be outdone, because the feeling is equal and Canada is more populous, more opulent and has larger means of making a grand scenic display. If the Prince of Wales was more illustrious as being the immediate heir to the throne the Princess Lonise inspires warmer affection and a more home like fondness as a scion of the royal family transplanted to the sooioty of Can ada, which she is to lead by her station and adorn by her intelligence, virtues and graces. If a higher deference was due to the rank of tho Prince a more chivalrous sentiment is awakened by the sex of the Princess. A kindlier and mora affectionate feeling, equal enthusiasm and more afflu ent means of imparting splendor and eciat tp a great festive occasion, will enable our neighbors to surpass the ovutions which they p^id to the youthiul heir-apparent eighteen years ago. But, although this groat parade of wel comiug loyalty is not prompted by political motives, it tends to important political re sults. It will strengthen the ties of ul legiance which bind Canada to the British Crown and postpone for a long period both the desire for independence and latent leanings toward annexation to the United States. This expected consequence ? is, of course, founded on the supposition that the permanent popularity of Lord Lome and the Princess Louise will fulfil | the bright promise of their first setting out. 1 These exuberant rejoicings bear, indeed, I some resemblance to a gay christening or a brilliant wedding, which are no gnarantee that the new born infant will not grieve his parents or that the parties united in wed lock will lead a happy life. But there is no apparent reason for fearing that this grand welcome is a prelude to anything but gracious condescension on the one side and devoted loyalty on the other. All the omens are auspicious, and although the enthusiasm cannot be kept up to its present pitch there is no reason why the family of the new Viceroy should not grow in popularity and esteem as the people of the Dominion become better ac quainted with them. If no blight should intervene and the harvest fnltil the promise of the blossoms the loyalty of the Cana dians to the British Crown will bo so deep ened and strengthened that independence will not be sought in our time, nor, per haps, in the time of our children. . The magical effect of a near approach to royalty is one of those unaccountable spells which defy cold reasoning and political philosophy. The sturdiest democrat in the Dominion, even if he be a demagogue and an Irishman to boot,,is not proof against i:s influence. When the Princess appears in the streets of any Catiadinn town the veriest democrat, nay, the veriest Fenian of them all, will catch the contagion and swing his bat arid shout his huzzas as lustily as any rojnlist in the crowd. The gcnerul feeling will not be w- akened unless the Governor General falls into tho error of taking an active part in politics. The government of the Dominion is organ ized on the principle that the Viceroy shall maintain a neutral attitude to ward political parties, as the sov ereign does in England, and thereby escape their hostility and a\oid the mor tification of having his presumed wishes defeated by a patty triumph. This theorv of the Canadian constitut.on is now for the first time to bo fully tested. ft lias hero toioro bpen thought necessary that the Gov ernor General should be a statesmen of mature age and faculties, large experience in responsible stations and tried capacity lor government. This was indispensable previous to the union of the Provinces by th" act of the imperial Parliament creating the Dominion, and the practice hus been continued during the first ten years of the new institutions. It was a wise measure ot precaution in the early stages of the experiment. Although neither .Sir John I'ming nor his successor, Lord Dufferin, overstepped the theory ot the new constitution, it w is pru dent to have in the government house at Ottawa a statesman qualified to assume di rection if affairs should tall info Confusion by some unseen source of failure iu'tbe new plan of government. The constitution of the Dominion h^s been long enough on trial to l>e regarded as established and capable of self-working according to its theory, and Lord Bcaconstield has given a signal mark of his confidence in the Canadian people and their states men in sending them a Viceroy who will play the same part that the Qucon does in England, neither inter vening nor standing prepared to intervene if the native statesmen should prove in competent. The theory of sole ministerial responsibility is now* as fully established and as completely acknowledged in the Dominion as it is in Great Britain, where the sovereign "reigns hut does not govern." Lord Lorne being thus set free by the constitution of Canada and the circum stances of his appointment from any con nection with party politics, there is no danger that his popularity can be im paired by political causes. If the Governor General and the Princess Louise shall he gracious and affable, and do not make themselves too difficult of access to persons who think that they possess social claims ; if they show themselves frequently to the people without too much ostentation of dignity ; if they take an active interest in education, charities and all beneficent movements which are not political ; if they make it their study to diffuse good taste, good breeding and refinement, without any airs of assumption, the fervid loyalty which is awakened by their arrival will at tend them during their sojourn in the country and strengthen immeastxrnbly the allegiance of Canada to the mother country. South Carolina Politics. We print elsewhere this morning a curi ous and interesting exposure, by a promi nent and honorable South Carolina demo crat, of the gross misconduct of tbo men who have got control of the democratic or ganization in the lower counties of that State, including the city of Charleston. This democratic Ting, as Mr. Campbell rightly calls it, has not bull-dozed the blacks; it has undertaken to bull-doze the whites. Its policy appears to be the literal realization of what is called a "solid South," for the political aim of this ring is to force all the white voters to remain in one party, subject to the dictation of tho ring, whose members have made themselves the masters of this party, and to reject the negro vote, pass laws making it difficult for the blacks to get in their votes, and then stuff the ballot boxe's and put their men in by deliberate fraud. Tbc IIzbild has often warned the demo crats of the political dangers of a "solid South;" it has olten pointed out to them that the maintenance of the coly line was 1 justifiable only while their States were de nied local self-government, and would be impossible without fraud whenever the in terference of tho federal government ceased. This letter of Mr. Campbell shows the truth of all we have urged on this head. All the events of the recent election show tho impossibility of maintaining a "solid South," or a solid white democratic vote in uuy Southern State, except where, as in Louisinna, the federal officers and repub lican leaders are particularly and justly odious to the people; or except where, as iu South Carolina, intimidation, not of tke blacks, but of the whites, united to un blushing fraud, is practised by the demo cratic leaders. Mr. Campbell deserves lasting honor from his State and the country for his manly stand for justice and fair play and lor the solemn engagements made by Governor Hampton and tho democrats of the State. That he had not the open and determined support of Governor Hampton is a disgrace to the Governor which must sink him very deep in the contempt of honorable men of both parties everywhere. But we wait to see if no protest will come from Charles ton and from South Carolina, and whether that State does not contain a sufficient number of honorable and bigli gpirited democrats to unite in a public re pudiation of the misconduct of their party loaders. It is plain that if the democrats in the negro counties of the State had been faithful to the Hampton policy of justice to the blacks these would have freely supported the democratic candidates. Mr. Campbell ! writes, "But for the conduct of the (demo cratic) executive committee the republican vote of tbis county would have been given heretofore and would now be given to such democrats as stand by the Hampton policy, which means merely the observance of good l'aitb, Inir play, justice and the protection of the colored man in bis rights. " W e warn the Southern democrats of one thing?their States arc now restored to local self-government; the responsibility of giving the colored men justice and fair play rests upon them. The old system of federal interference will not be re-estab lished, and it is even probahlo that the next Congress will repeal the federal elec tion laws or many pnrts of them. But the Northern public, feeliug that lull justice bus now been done to tbo .South, will hence forth watch the conduct of the democrats there with redoubled jealousy, and so long I as public opinion in the South tolerates ! such a policy as that of theso South Caro j lina deinecr its so long the North will unite against the democratic party of the country. | The recent events in South Carolina, of which Mr. Campbell in his letter gives only tin incomplete history, will be found to have decided the Presidential election in 1X80 against tho democratic party unless ' public opinion in the South promptly and conspicuously condemns and disowns them. 'Ihat is the moral of the whole mutter, and it is worth whilo for Northern democrats to | consider it. An Interview with Kwing, We copy from tho Cleveland Herald a conversation with tho Ohio chnmpion of 1 inflation and silver money. 1 ho note worthy thing in this interview is Mr. Ewing's admission that resumption will b? accomplished on the 1st of January, since there will be no opportunity lor passing a bill for defeating or retarding resumption before that date. There is just us little likelihood ol the passage of such a bill atter as belore the 1st of January. Kven if it could be carried through tho Hcnuto, which no good judge believes, it would cerlninly bo stranded on n veto. Mr. Ewing uvows his strong preference for Senator Thurnmn us the next democratic candidate for the Presidency, but the course which has gained Mr. Thuriuan the support of men like Ewing must provoke ttie opposi tion of nil sincere hard money democrats. Uoanoil ?ii?| (?eorgjua Wcklau. That '*the old ones ure tiie worst," whether in love or folly, holds good in the eyes of the young, who can always find ex cuses for their own weakness or stupidity. The snows of age are supposed to be so cooling on the heart that the fire of pretty eyes cannot make it stir a single fibre, and when it is iound that, on the con trary, the tough old cardiAo region has been palpitating like a steam engine under the glance of a siren, public opinion oolls the owner of the heart a fool. So it was with the wizard Merlin, in the "Idyls of the King," and so it bus been with the musician Gounod. The Vivien of the Arthurian legend coquet tishly wtayfped herself in the old man's hoary heard "like a lovely baleful star veiled in gray vapor." The charming Mrs. Weldon in the contemporary story patted the com poser on his bald head and called him pet names. The legend has all the light o! poetry upon it and is seen, too, through the softening mist of time; in the plain prose ot to-day the story is under all the sun-glare that makes unpo etio details stick out. lfut the old semi-savage medicine man whom Ten nyson made so much like an Angli can bishop is a thing of rags beside the polished wizard of the tonic scale?the first French composer of tho time. The first forest, uncleared of underbrush, that came to hand, was a good enough scene for Ten nyson, in which to show how his old man was made a l'ool; hut itneeded the late home of the great novelist Dickens, in the largest city in the world, for Gounod to come to grief in. Pretty and ambitious women ore the same in all ages in their way of dealing with men, and if we make allowance for the difference which is implied by scented note paper and a house in Tavistock square we shall not find much difference between the flattery and "soul homage" of Mrs. Weldon and the wiles of artful Vivien. It was with Gounod as with Merlin. Those who read the strange story elsewhere can almost see Georgina Gaze upon him Willi such a fixt devotion that the old loaa, Tho' doubtful, felt the flattery, and at times Would flatter his own wish 111 a?e for love And hulf believe h<*r true. We do not know that there was a Mrs. Merlin, but we are certain there was a Mme. Gounod, which made a difference. The savage little Vivien shut her old foci up in a damp forest, "lost to liie and use and name and fame;" but Mrs. Weldqn put her old man to work and kept him at it for three years, turning out operas and oratorios, songs and symphonies in a way that shows some supe riority in the modern method, although it drove the composer crazy for a time. Gounod, however, got away, while old Mer lin, us we. know, is left by the poet befud dled und asleep in the thicket. There is some merit in civilization utter all. Holy Kisses. Why did the clerical investigators of the Waliingford church soandal, upon which wo publish a letter to-day, omit to notice the charge that the accused pastor was fond of kissing female parishioners? If, as seems most likely, the apostolic injunction to salute the faithful \fitha holy kiss seemed to lorbid them, we beg to say, in our humble capacity of laymen, that the nineteenth century of the Christian era is not the first, and that the pastor of to-day is a differ ent man from his apostolic prototypes, and is living among entirely different social and religious conditions. When an unpaid, unkempt, persecuted, utterly religious enthusiast, as all the immediate successors of Jesus were, hurried about from place to placo, exhorting men and women to purity and to preparation for that etui of all things which he believed to be jnstathdnd, the kiss he bestowed was likely to be given and received as a mere saluta tion, according to the custom of the lime. It gave no offence to the receiver or her friends. To-day, however, there is scarcely nnv one who expects to hear the last trump except from a reserved seat in the next world. The preacher of the Gospel is, out of the pulpit, a man like ourselves, and is judged by the social standards which arc admitted by other people proteas ing to be respectable. There is another apotitoiic injunction, fur-more emphatically cxpressed than that upon kissing, to the effect that under no circumstances should a man do anything which causes his spiritual brother to offend. It being an oft-proved fact that the pastoral kiss causes many men to wish black eyes and bloody noses to tbe bestower, and to occasionally inflict tbein, we submit to conferences, presbyteries and synods the question whether the peace and reputation of churches is not of more con sequence than any social precedent what ever? Will I lit- Ml rect Cleaner* Uo to Work! The attention of the fctiv-t Cleaning Bu reau is directed to the report in to-day's Herald of(the condition of the streets on the east side between Twentieth and Fifty seventh streets, and also to the complaints as to the irrcgulaiity and insufficiency of the visits of the ash and garbage carts in that locality. The latter evil is not, indeed, confined to any particular district, but may be said to be general all over the city and demands n prompt remedy. By some unaccountable arrangement the carts stem to make their collections nt undesirable hours, and very frequently to skip whole blocks, apparently through oversight or carelessness. It is not unusual to see cav.s collecting ashes nloTrg Nassau street and other crowded thoroughfares at four or five o'clock in the afternoon, when the sidewalks are thronged and when the bcoU teiingof tlio dust and dirt is particularly offensive. Certainly such blunders as these ought to bi avoided and fixed hours named lor the collection of the contents of Inrrels and ash pans, win n the work will be as little ot a public nuisance as possible. It is to be hoped that the street cleaning authorities will set ns efficiently to work to clean such streets as our reports show to be neglected as tlie^ did during the summer Wot)the. It is important that we have thoroughly clean streets before the snow uud lrost set in. If garbage heaps are allowed to be covered up anil froze# in they tend to promote sickness and disease iu the spring. Tho bureau authorities should take hold of the work in earnest. They have shown that tboy are able to keep the greets clean when they choose to do so, and there is no good teuson why they should wait fcr an agitation of the subject in tho press beforo tboy make up their minds to do their duty in un efficient manner. Wlijr Slake Us Blush 1 Mr. Tnlmage, with a few flaps of his wings, took his Tabernacle of Brooklyn saints yes terday morning and set it down in a deu of New York thieves. Then he proceeded to exhibit burglars, bank robbers, male and female pickpockets, footpads, sneak thieves and so lorth, who tsteal au aggregate of six million dollars a year. With what palpitating interest the good people were moved at seeing on what familiar terms their pastor was with theso criminals may be imagined by picturing an innocent rustic gloating and Jblushing over his first dip into those flashy sketches of metropolitan .wickedness which are circulated with make-believe secrecy among gulliblo countrymen and which are usually called "mysteries." It is not probable that the saints will be any better for this reverend comedian's fine im itation of a runaway window smasher shouting "Stop thiol!" than the country man lor his gliuipse of tho Rlleged orgies of ballet girls and young "bloods." They are both on the same plane, and tho one will as little help the rustic to a high sense of tho purity of life as the other will fit the Tabernueler for a berth on board that bizarre craft with "five doors," which is Mr. l'almage's idea of the vessel of salvation. A luuny thing about these sermons is that they have stimulated some ministers to recount, per contra, how good we are in New York. The record of our charities is slapped against the tabulation of our crimes and goes it half a million dol lars better. Between these rival statements wc feel in doubt whether it is the blush of criminnl shame or of modest worth that mantles onr countenance. Sim-oimI Hand Huiuanltjr. All exchange tells of a pedestrian ?who happened to nee a boy fall into a brook. The observer had a tender heart, bnt he had also a pair of new trousers for which he had great regard, so he hntried to a house some distance away and gave the alarm. It is needless to say that the boy was drowned before help could reach him. As for the humane pedestrian, a jury of unregeneratcs were so stupid as to censure him severely, apparently under the impression that ho had done something improper. If the jury men were really correct, and the careful guardian of his own tronsers was wrong, the last named gentleman deserves a great deal of sympathy, for humanity like his is quite the general thing. A very great number of men and women who behold the sufferings and dangers of others are deeply affected by them, but, out of regard either for property which they have or hope to have, they hurry about to get relief for the sufferer?by telling somebody else. Among these dispensers of humanity at sec ond hand are many of the godly folk of this city, who are jost now. weeping over the drunkards of their acquaintance and turning them over to the prnyers of the faithful aud the efforts of Mr. Murphy. If after thus quieting their own consciences the humane souls look backward and discover that the drunkard is no more, they have themselves to blame. The man who really wants a drunkard saved should himself plunge in and give the poor wretch a baud, even at the risk of the operation costing something; and though there may be no regularly empanelled jury to censure him in case of non-performance of his mani fest duty the stupidest person of his ac quaintance is fully competent to perceive that he is a contemptible hypocrite, and to say so. Yellyw Fever mid (iuarautlne. Quarantine?rigorous und absolute quar antine?quarantine that effectively isolates a place at which the epidemic has made its appearance and maintains non-intercourse for the whole time of its prevalence?this, a special committee informed the National Health Association, is the only resource that is effective against yellow fever. Having made elaborate and thorough in quiry on the scene of the epidemic, and with all facilities extended to assist the effectiveness of their investigation, these doctors are satisfied that the infection of the fever was carried into every place in which it rage by personal or commercial communication, and was brought to New Orleans by the Emily Sou der; that disinfectants have been of no value, but often have done harm; that proph ylactic medicines are of doubtful benefit, and that the most rigid quarantine is the only hope of any threatened community. Everybody interested in the welfare and prosperity of the city of New Orleans should take especial notice of this declara tion, for its point will ba remembered next summer, and n rigid quarantine will be adopted against the Crescent City uuleas it enforces a very effective one against ports from which yellow fever can come. It New Orleans cam ot make a goo I quarantine, some of tho cities up the river can?as was seen this year?and doubtless will. The II u ma it Form Divine. The u ml rape I hmuan figure in art is ex citing a groat deal of discussion just now, even although tho photograph ot Makart's great picture no longer hangs in the window of tho Fulton stroet confectioner, and Bon guerean's study of a feminine figure has been retired iroin the Loan Exhibition. Across tho occau a social science congress lias b< en discussing a paper on the relations of the nude figure to icithetics and in ovals, and the fight, though inconclusive, was delightfully vigorous. As usual in such struggles, however, the real features of the case are entirely Inst to sight. Because wilful exposure of the person is immodest and iudc-cent it seems to be assumed on the one side that there is something shameful and wrong about tho human form itself; while, on the other, it appears to be claimed that because physical outlines are beautiful and honorable in themselves artists of vicious tendencies are to be justilied in adapting human lines and tints to any purpose which a depraved nature may tie. sire to express upon canvas. After the quarrel is over, however, the public will be pretty sure to go on deciding tho question according to the pictures themselves, as it lias done heretofore, 'iho morality or irn morality of a picture is to be found in its sentiment, instead of its material. If an artist has any imagination, either good or bad, his picture will express its exact quality, whether the figures are d.raped or not; and by this alone is the moral influ. ence of bis picture to be estimated. If he is a mere copyist, as nine out of every ten painters are, bis nude figures will have na more influence than the hundreds of theii kind which hung iu European galleries and which are passed without a second glance by any observer, no matter what his per? sonal character may be.
