H« I null Everett at the North.
There is already a Bell and Everett Electoral ticket in
nearly every Northern State. There will be a Bell and
Everett Electoral ticket in every Northern State, with
the single exception, perhaps, of New Hampshire, in a
Mhort lime. In New York. Pennsylvania, New Jersey,
Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Michigan, Iowa, Wisconsin.
Kbo-le Island, Connecticut, Massachusetts, Vermont and
Maiue, electoral tickets for Bell and EvervU are already
in the held. The last news from California shows that
there will soon be a Bell and Everett ticket in that State;
aud so, also, we have good reason to believe, in regard
to Oregon. In a word, there cannot be, at the outside,
more than two or three Northern States, in which there
will be no Bell and Everett electoral ticket. We are of
the opinion, from facts within our knowledge, that mere
will V an electoral ticket in all of them, long before the
dav of election.
Uow differeut the condition of things now from what
it was l'onr years ago! At th.it'time. Mr. Fillmore had
no electoral tickets in more than half of the Northern
States' Such were the iuteuse agitation and excite
ment prevailing at the North four year ago, and pro
du vd by the repeal of the Missouri Compromise and the
chastisemMt oi Sumner by Brooks, that the peopie if
the North seemed to have abandoued4their reason, and
yielded entirely to the wild and reckless Sway of passion.
The Northern people, at that time, were stirred up and
* exasperated beyond mea.ure, aud the canvass was the
m-vst enthusiastic and exciting ever known in that re
gion. It appeared, indeed, as if Freemont would sweep
Hie North and;carry every Northern electoral vote —
* There was a xcal and an enthusiasm displayed in his be
half. throughout the canvass, which has never been
»iUMKsed in lie Northern Bates, and which Northern
u»eu aud Southern men seriously thought would lead to
liia'lrmmphaiiA election by the people.
But, look at the condition of things at the North now'
Is there such agitation there as prevailed four years ago ’
1- there such deep and universal excitement and enthu
siasm there in behalf of the election ot Lincoln, as there
was iu behalf yf the election of Fremont ? Not at all'
Oi the contrary, an apparently dead calm prevails
throughout ill the Northern Bates. The noicina'ion ol
’Lincoln has evidently been received with coldness by all,
and «ilh positive aversion by a Urge number of those
wh > supported Fremont. There Is no enthusiasm whaf
e»er iu behalf of Lincoln’s election; and the Republican
organs are bitterly complaining that the people in that
Mctiau—that is, the Republican people—seem to take
Lttl.- or no interest in the result of the present contest.
And w« believe it is true. We believe that thousands
aud lens of thousands of those who supported Fremout
have abandoned the Republican, party, and gone over to
either Bell or Douglas. We believe, furthermore, that
there is no chance for the election of Lincoln by the peo
ple. unless the. triends of Breckinridge at the North are
determined to vote indirectly for him by continuing
B eckiuridge electoral tickets in the field. We incline,
indeed, to the belief that Lincoln can, and will he de
feated, in apite of the aid and comfort given him by the
friends of Breckinridge. But, about 1 we unfortunately
a,- mistaken iu this, and Lincoln should be elected. <A«
\rh.Jc responsibility of Am flection trill rut upon Breck
' .urtthu ami kit friends. There is no evading or dodg.
mg this palpable, incontrovertible fact. We have the
authority of the Lvochbuig Republican for saying "that
tecra colt ytwa to lirtckinrubn at tht Surth is a rote
, oh rcctl c for Lincoln.”
Why, then. Weep Breckinridge in the field* Nobody
.- but a consummate fool believes that he stands the slight
est potable chance of an election either by the people or
by the House of Representative* He is simply out of
, \r juesfion. And every vote givrn to him, whether at
• the North or at the South, is a vote in aid of the elec
uoo of Lincoln. To support Breckinridge at the South
i*ao encourage the friends of Breckinridge at the North
,o continue Breckinridge electoral tickets in the field in
ibat section ; and to continue Breckinridge electoral tick
eisuu the field in the Northern Sates is, in all probabili

i-.nlgt men of Virginia and the South perceive the result
which their leaders are madly driving them» And
wUl they longer continue, vainly and factiously, to adhere
t: and support the Yancey candidate' If they really do
not desire the election of Lincoln, they should, as boceet
m-n and patriots, abandon Breckinridge at once, andral
lj. with might and main, to the support ol Bell and Eve
• r^ti*
Bell can be elected, and he can be elected by the peo
ple, if the Southern States will sustain him in a body, as
it iii the.r duty to do. All that is necessary to secure
bi m enough Northern votes to elect him, is to assure the
Northern people that the Southern States will vote for
lupi. A’e can indeed assure them, and we do a. sure
iIkih. that Beil will crrbiinf.v carry twelve out of tbs lif
l*en Southern States; and we honestly believe that he
will carry every one of them with the single exception of
hqpth Carolina : and even South Carolines vote will be
•giien to him if her vote can elect him.
We call upon oir Northern friends, therefore, to notly
rally to the rescue, and carry at least (Airfyfwo North
ern electoral vows for Bell and E.’ertt, and thus ensure
, ,„jr el^cuou by the people. Fifty, Nurlhcru elejioral
soles will make their election by the people, in our judg
ment, ab-tolultlf rrrd.a—for Breckinridge cannot pos
sibly obtain, according to present indications, more
than eighteen Southern electoral votes, and we do not
believe he will get the half of that number.
To the rescue, then, you gallant and devoted 1’uiou
men of the North, and all will be wet!1
A Sag jeetlou to the Whig Ladle* of Blchnsowd!
After consultation with many of our Whig friends, as
hive been instructed to suggest to the Whig young la
dies of Richmond to take into their own fair and ener
gvtic hands the work of decorating the dub Hols •. It
will lx- completed by Saturday, we presume, or by Mon
d .v eveniug at farthest, and the ladies can then devote
T icsduy and Wednesday to the matter designated. One
of our candidates at lei at has done much for the ladies,
and the ladies now have an opportunity of doing some
thing in honor of him.
We threw out the foregoing suggestion to them, and
express the ferveut hope that, with their usual patriotic,
, obliging and indomitable spirit, they will carry it out a
a successful issue. The young gentlemen of the city w 11
n i doubt be rejoiced to lead the ladies their uwtanie
in the works
What say you ladies, yes or no, ? Do say “ yes "
just once, and who knows bat you may be induced to
say “yea” again some of these days, in relation to a
much more important question ! As for oarselves, we
know that “yes,” as to either matter, would gladder. and
elate us mightily!__
Judge Dougina iu Hlchistouil.
We understand that a telegraphic dispatch was receiv
ed from Judge Douglas on yesterday, announcing hie
purpose to eddrent the ciliaens of Richmond oo Friday
evetrfog next. A vast concourse of persons will, of
, >urm, be prevent to greet and to bear the distinguished
fetrsuiau and stranger.
Breckinridge OB'the ttump-Aaother .“Tra*
veil I B( Jlouatebank.**
Our able contemporary of the Nashville Banner calls
a'.tentiou to the fact that the National Committee of the
Bat< eineidoi wing of the late Democratic party recent
lv issued an address to the people over the signature of
Gov. Stevens, the Chairman, in which Judge Dorotas
was spoken of, in connection with his public speeches
since his nomination, as a “ Travelling Mountebank.”—
And it now appears, it adds, that we are to have a pair
of them on the stump, for the appellation is, we pre
sume, equally applicable to one as to the other, for the
same cause. Brickiskidoi is announced to address a
Mass Meeting in Kentucky. lie has, indeed, taken a
step in advance of all (irecedeuta, for his Democratic
competitor, thus far, has only been found speaking to
impromptu gatherings. The Yancey colt, however, is
about to make a set speech for a campaign document, in
which bo will “ group together" in an “ authentic man.
uer,” whatever material may be deemed useful to his
party, and which will be scattered over the country.
We are not surprised at this course of the unfortunate
young gentleman who has been placed at the head of
the Yancet ticket. It is entirely in consonance with the
guerilla warfare which the Disunion faction of which he
is the leader have been waging from the beginning.—
Desperate cases demand desperate remedies. Mr. Bekck
isBiixis feels that he is in a strait which uo other Presi.
dential candidate has ever been in before. Besides not
having the remotest chance of an election, be has be.
come identified with a set of agitators and dUunionists,
and has pledged himself to strive to earn their confi
dence, thereby losing the confidence of the rest of the
country. Iu this dire contingency he has determined
not to stand upon ceremony. No delicate sense of pro
prietv—no respect tor honored precedents, no apprecia
tion of the high diguity of the Presidential office, will
restrain Mr. BaECXtSRioviE from pursuing any course by
which he can hope to gain an advantage. Mr. Bbeck
inehmie, therefore, upon.the shallow plea that he has
been misrepresented—will take the stump iu advocacy of
his own claims for the Presidency, and no doubt will
keep it during the canvass. We are content. We can
have no doubt of the result. He can never reply to the
speech made by Kentucky at the lateelection.if he should
address rhe people every day until the ti'h of November.
The Government ou the Stomp.
The Rome (Ga.) Advertiser, a Democratic paper, says
it understands that an arrangement In consummated, by
which the President and all the members of his Cabinet,
will, in turn, take the stump for Breckinridge and Lane.
Mr. Buchanan has already delivered oue speech in
Washington. When Mr. Cobb returns W hU post from
his stumping tour through Georgia, the arrangement is
for Mr. Buchanan to make a visit to Pennsylvania, through
the more important cities of that State, when his office
holders are ordered to serenade him, and he will respond
at each place in a lengthy speech, each time expressing
his suprise (?) at the unexpected houor. Mr. Buchanan
will return when Mr. Jacob Thompson, Secretary of In
terior, will take a trip to Mississippi, and make speeches
through that Slate and Alabama. Aud iu that way, each
of the Cabinet officers, Hons. J. Holt, Isaac Toucey and
Jeremiah Black will, iu their turn,tske, ostensibly, a trip
home, but iu fuel, a stumping tour for Breckinridge aud
Lane. Gentlemen can afford to do that who receive
eight thousand dollars a year salary.
It is generally believed that the Post Master General
has issued a circular,in which his subalterns, all over the
1'nioo are commauded to do all they can for the cause
iu the way of writiug communications for the country
papers, distributing campaign documents to the voters
of their respective localities, under the frank of “J. B.,”
and "H. C.,” offering to bet all sort* of p./rs on Brock*
success, which has been furnished for the purpose from
“Head If lartcrs," and in every possible way promoting
and bolstering up the cause of disunion and treason.—
And for the beufiit of those interested, we feel safe in
announcing that Mr. Cobb will grant any of the editors
u i Jer him leave of absence, if they desire to take the
stump or otherwise aid the “suiciders.”
What a corrupt and infamous Administration is cow
plundering and oppressing the people! Breckinridge is
the candidate of that Administration !
The ComwtUutionwl liiton Parly.
Henry Clay, in 1851, foreseeing just such sectiocal'o;
ganixiliou* and just such sectional parties, as have now
arisen, upon the distracting subject of slavery, lid
oil'in the following Pledge from prominent members of
Congress of both parties:
THK rLKlMIK.
“The undersigned, members of the Thirty-first Con
gee* of the l uiied States, believing the renewal of sec
tional controversy upon the sub ject of slavery would be
both dangerous to the L'uion aud destructive of it* ob
jects. and seeing no mode by which such controversy
can be avoided, except by a strict adherence to the set
tlement thereof effected by the compromise acts passed
at the last se-oiou of Congress, do hereby declare their
intention to maintain the said settlement inviolate, aud
o resist all attempts to repeal or alter the act aforesaid,
unless bv the general consent cl frieud* of the measures,
and to remedy such evils, if any, as time and expericuco
may dcvclopc.
"And for the purpose of making this resolution effec
tive, they further declare hat they will uot support for
the office ot President or Vice President, or of Senator
or of Representative in Congress, or «■* member of a
State Legislature,*!!* man, of whatever party, who is not
known to be opposed to the disturbance oi the settle
ment aforesuid, and to the renewal, in any form, of agi
tation upon the subject of slavery,

Here is the pledge; and now we call for its redemp
tion. The L'uion [candidates. Bell and Everett, stand
squarely upon that platform—they plant themselves up
on the “settlement” of 1850 in good faith, and are pledg
ed to oppose any “disturbance of that settlement,” and
i»L - ..—.I in anw I'.xrm nf atrtlolinn It Win Uilh'»»<-*♦
oi slavery." That settlement has since received an addi
tional sanction in the decision of the highest judicial tri
bunal of the land, and they renew their pledge to uphold
it. What is more, uo other candidites stand on that
platform. Ooe is for giving it a new interpretation, and
the other openly avows his determination to demand ad
ditional legislation,thereby prescribing new conditions of
peace, and, as a consequence, “renewing the agitation."
■ • II and I veretl In Arkansas.
The Arkanaas State Gazette says that from the West
ern part of the State, heretofore the stronghold of the
Democracy, it hat the most cheering accounts of the
Union cause. Hon. David Walker, one of the truest,
purest and most eloquent men in the State, has taken
the field for Bell and Everett, and his efforts have had a
very telling effect. Gen. Thomason, Union Elector, is
out with a list of appointments. He is one of the best
speaker* in the country, and DisunionUm will fiy or fail
before him. In the hands of Walker and Thomason and
Spring and Gunter and Bedford and other good ami true
men, the Union banner in theJ|West will waivehighjin
victory over all Disunion opposition.
We are also in great hopes that Mr. Cypert, the Union
candidate for Congress, has beaten Hindman in the First
District, though it is almost hoping against hope. The
H lena Shield says Col. Hindman concedes his defeat,
but to overcome the u?ui! Democratic majority of near
ly 10,iitsi seems impossible even in this age of political
revolution._
‘•Scripture Dlrlz” In 1850.
In the great struggle of 1850, about the newly acquir
ed Territory from the Republic of Mexico, there were
many amendments and aubstitutes offered in the Senate
bv different members, to Mr. Clay's celebrated Compro
mise Resolutions, reported by him as Chairman of a spe
cial Committee of thirteen. One of these amendments
was introduced by Mr. Davis, of Mississippi, which reads
as follows:
“And that all laws and usages existing iu said Territo
ry. at the date of its acquisition by the United States,
which deny or obstruct the right of any cilizsu of the
Uuited State* to remove to and reside in said Territory,
■ ith auy specie# of property legally held in any State of
this Union, be and arc ben by declared to be uull and
void.”
We see by the you* and Mays, that Daniel S. Dickinson,
the “Seceders" iinf of New York, voted again*! this
resolution.
Of course that is ail right now, as “Scripture Diek" be
loug- to the Seceders party, and expects to be appointed
Secretary of State, if Breck is elected.
Graail Sally to Ike Club House To-Day !
Let there l>e a grand rally to the Club House to-day
of all who are disposed to lend a helping hand to the
work! l.H the active and energetic young men all turn
out, and lets see who is the best at lifting timber and
driving a nail! And let the old men be there, and aid
Jby their presence and their counsels! Let all come, and
what a glorious house-raising we shall have!
Acknowledgment.
We are indebted to Messrs. Van Lew, Taylor A Co.,
for a most beautiful and excellent pen-knife. It is ol
the Bell and Everett stamp, we presume, as it is made of
first-rate metal. We are tbm enabled, through the kind!
ness of these gentlemen, to wield a sharper pen for the
remainder of the canvass.
How They Drop Him.
The Evening .Star and Columbus Ktpotilor, formet
advocates of Breckinridge, are now for Douglas. Hurrah
for Mississippi! She, too, will pronounce against rebel
lion and disunion.
John Hell at Home.
The Nashville Banner thus refers to the real and en
thusiasm in behalf of the election of Bell and Everett at
Mr. Bell's own home :
“In no time in the history of political campaigns it
Nashville, have the men of our party mustered strongei
in numbers or have they been so thoroughly organixec
for action—so energetic, and earnest and active in the
cause as they seem at the present time. The disunion
movement of certain Democratic leaders in the South
bas driven into our ranks, aud under the broad bannei
of “run Union," many who have heretofore remained
under the generalship of a Nashville Democratic wire
pulling clique, and up to the time when the ruptures al
at Charleston and Baltimore exposed to tiii rxoi-LX the
secret motives of the office-seekers aud the spoilsmen.
The friends of the Union all over these States, united,
may rest assured that the glorious cause lags not here
at the borne of Bell! Young men and old are mingling
together at the club meetings, and are weildi ig a mighty
influence upon the minds of men hitherto uninterested iu
the result of Presidential campaigns, the aged met of the
county, personal frieudsaud acquaintances of the states
man of Tennessee, the young volunteers—the ‘maiden
voters’of 1860—who have from their mother's knee beeu
taught to love and revere aud honor John Bell as the
greatest man their Stale has ever produced—are ming
ling together in the Union processions, and may
bo seen at all times exhorting their wavering
Democratic frieuds to join in with them iu
the cause of “the Constitution, the Union, and
the Enforcement of the Laws.” The young men arc
<eorking—unceasingly working, as will be seen by the
steadv increase of the Clubs, and the nightly accessions
to their ranks. Iu some of these club meetings we have
beard old men declare—and the declaration came with
double truth and force and sincerity, from lips tremu
lous with age, and heads silvered o’er by the frosts of
many winters—we have heard them declare they had
stood with the Democracy all their lives, and that they
would have stood with it yet, had not the party by the
action of its delegates at Charleston, at Baltimore, at
Richmond, presented a broken front to the black army
of the North. The cunttrvatxvt element of the old Jack
sonian Dtmocraev, will never vote with a sectional party'
The salvation of their country, aud the happiness of its
people, and our mutual prosperity and strength as a na
tion, will cause them to even forget party differences, iu
a cause of greater inomea'.—the preservation of the Fed
eral Union.
The Wan! Clubs of this city form a powerful combi
nation against the enemies of the Union, and the patri
otic efforts of the members of these clubs will tell in No
vember. Let the Clubs all over the State, at the cross
roads and the village school-houses, emulate their exam
ple. Let them see who can be most active when the
safety of a nation is in danger. Work, work, ever work 1
To the persevering aud the brave belongs the victor’s
wreath of laurel. _
POLITICAL ITEMS.
Straws Show now tiik Wino Blows.—A few days
siuce, a party of some thirty-five gentlemen were assem
bled in the tieii-hbnrhootl of (iloucester. to eniov the
pleasures of a claui bake. No refcreuce to politics what
ever was bad in the selection of the party; but only to
their clant-bakc-ical qualities; but on taking the solid
sense of the meeting, it appeared that all but two were
for Bell aud Everett—Motion Courier.
Sot'runs Georuun—Rev. George Bright, who pur
chased this piper souie two or three months ago, aud who
changed it I rout a political to a religious paper, has sold
out to Mr. James I. Remolds. Mr. Remolds makes his
how in a very neat and appropriate salutatory, and an
nounces his intention to support Bell aud Everett in the
following language:
‘•We shall advocate the election of Bell and Everett to
the Presidency of the United States, feeling that the duty
of every lover of the Union and the equality of the
Slates, North and South, is so plain and uutuistakable in
the present crisis of public affairs, that alter a careful
survey of the several political organizations now in the
political arena,tho man who is open to conviction cannot
fail decide in their favor.”—La Grange (fra.) AN porter.
Pennsylvania is wide awake. The Philadelphia Kee
ning Journal of Tuesday has notices of twenty-two Bell
aud Everett meetings at different points in the iutenor.
Among the speakers are J. R. Ingersoll, Edward King,
Henry M. Fuller, David Paul Brown, Sen. and Jun., Jacob
Brown, Ac.
The Livingston (Ala.) Vettenger and the Troy (Ala.)
American, the former heretofore a neutral, and the latter
a Democra'ic journal, have declared for Beil and Everett
lb the pending canvass.— Moll. Clipper.
ILLINOIS IN THE HELD.
The National Uuion party held their Slate Convention
at Decatur, ou the ltilh inst. The proceedings were en
tirely harmonious.
The following resolutions indicate the spirit with which
our Illinois brethreu are imbued ;
Re*olc<d. That as National Union men, we hail the

MORE NEWS FROM GEN. WALKER.
The New Orleans Picayune has the following des
patch.
SorT«n est Pass , Aug. 2!i.—The schooner Dew Drop,
from the Ruatau Islands, arrived at the bar this morn
ing
This artival pats us in possession of further particulars
regarding the capture of the town of Truxillo. Honduras,
by Gen. Walker and his small army of SO men.
The tight was more serious and bloody than was pre
viously reported. There were 12 Spanish Americans kill
ed and Id wounded, while ou the Walker side only J re
ceived slight injuries.
Geu. Walker was still in possession of Truxillo. lie has
decl rred himself iu favor of Cabanas, aud issued a proc
lamation to that effect.
The Delta publishes the proclamation, which is as fol
lows :
To the People of Honduras:
More th in five years ago I, with others, was invited
to the republic of Nicaragua, ami was promised certain
rights and privilegea on the condition of certain services
rendered the Slate. We performed the services requir
ed of us; but the existing authorities of Honduras joiued
a combination to drive us from Central America.
In the course of events the people of the Hay Islands
find themselves in nearly the suite position the Ameri
cans held in Nicaragua, iD November, 1855. The same
policy which led Guardiola to make war on as will in
duce him tc drive the people of the Islauds from Hondu
ras. A knowledge of the fret has led certain residents
of the Islands to call on the adopted citizens of Nica
■ agua for aid in the maiuteuace of their rights of per
son and property.
Hut no sooaer had a few adopted citiiens of Nicara
gua answered this call of the residents of the Island by
repairing to Knatan. than the acting authorities of Hon
duras, alarmed for their safety, put obstacles in the wav
of carryiug out the treaty of the 28th of November, 1859.
Guardiola delays to receive the Islauds, because of the
presence of a few men he has injured; aud thus, for par
ty purposes, not only jeopards the territorial interests of
Honduras, but thwarts for the moment a cardinal object
of Central American policy.
The people of the Bay Islands can be engrafted on
Tour republic only by wise concessions properly made.
The existing authorities of Honduras have, by their past
acts, given proof that they would not make the requisite
concessions. The same policy which Guardiola pursued
towards the naturalized Nicaraguans prevents him from
pursuing the only course by which Honduras can expect
to hold the islands.
It becomes, therefore, a common object with the natu
ralized Nicaraguans, aud with the people of the Bay
Islands, to place in the government of Honduras those
who will yield the rights lawfully required in the two
Mutes. Thus the Nicaraguans will secure a return to
tbeir adopted country, and the Hay Islanders will obtain
full guarautees from the sovereignty under which they
are to be placed bv the treaty of the 20th of Novem
b-r, 1859.
To obtain, however, the object at which we aim, we do
not make war against the people of Honduras, but only
against a government which stands in the way of the in
terests not only of Honduras, but of all Central America.
The people of Honduras may, therefore, rely on all the
protection they may require for their rights both of per
son and property. WM. WALKER.
Trcxii.lo, Aug. 7. I860.
The Delta also mentions the following details ;
“Gen. Walker took prisoners the collector of the port
and a lieutenant, but afterwards released them. He also

INTERESTING MEXICAN RUMORS.
The New Orleans Delta of tho 24th says that “by the
last arrival from Vera Cruz letters from high authorities
at that place, containing exceedingly inqiorlanl intelli
gence, were received here. Their contents which are of
a highly exciting nature, have been commuuicatcd to us
by persons every way worthy of credit." This intelli
gence is to the effect, that in consequence of the peremp
tory demand of the Spanish commander at Vera Crux for
the immediate restoration of the barque Maria Concep
cion, which demand, the Delta says, it “now appears was
made in a peremptory form,* and accompanied with a
threat of immediate hostilities in cose the demand should
not be complied with in twenty-four hours. Tho consti
tutional government immediately made preparations fer
defence."
The Delta’s news thus proceeds:
“Everything was placed in readiness to repel the ex
pected attack. The guns were kcptloaded, the artillery
men at their posts, the garrison under arms, and the peo
ple of the town were set to work preptring ammunition.
At the last accounts it wasexpocted momentarily that the
Spanish fleet would commence a bombardment.
"We are iuformod that the greatest enthusiasm pre
vailed among the population of the city. So far from
dreading the attack, it was universally desired that the
Spanish fleet should carry its threat into execution.
“This feeling was produced and stimulated by the con
fidence that the United States would embrace the oppor
tunity of coming to the assistance of the constitutional
government. In fact, immediately on the occurrence of
these events, President Juarez despatched letters to this
country, which have since gone on to Washington, and
have before this time been laid before the Administra
tion,'askiug American assistance, or at least the privilege
of raising volunteers and procuring anna aud munitions
of war within our territory.
i “There can be no doubt, likewise, that, should our Gov
ernmcnt, through these means, become involved in diffi
culties with Spain, an excellent dpport unity would be af
forded for realizing our Cuban aspirations.”
TOE PRINCE OF WALES—LAYING THE CORNER
STONE OF VICTORIA BRIDGE.
The dispatch published yesterday, left tbe Prince of
Wales in Montreal on Saturday, but just about to start
for tbe great Victoria Bridge, the coruer-stoue of which
be was to lay. This ceremony he performed about noon,
in tbe presence of an immense concourse of persons —
From a despatch in tbe New York Herald, we copy the
following: *
Tbe approach to the Bridge was lined with seats, to
which persons were admitted only by ticket. Inside the
abutment were seats for tbe higher classes, covered with
red cloth, while tbe gallery above was reserved for the
families of the legislators.
A scaffold was erected for the Prince near tbe corner
stone, wbicb was (lightly raised, together with an apara
tus lor lowering the stone. Tbe Prince and suit having
ascended tbe platform, tbe builder of the bridge handed
him a silver trowel, the handle of which was made of
Canadian beaver, and connected with the blade by the
Princes feather. Or. the blade was an inscription com
memorative of the completion of the bridge by the
Prince. On tbe reverse was a representation of Victo
ria Bridge.
Tlie mortar having been placed under the stone by the
masons, and the Prince, having received directions from
the Duke of Newcastle, took a little mortar on a trowel
and spread it uuder tbe stono in line style. Tbe stone
was then slowly lowered, aud the Priuce tapped it three
times with a wooden mallet. Tbe ceremony being coui
$teted, cheers aud salutes thundered out upon the air.
be Priuce then entered tbe car, proceeded to the crnlie
arch of the bridge,fastened two rivets, and theu proceed
ed acrosi to St. Lamberts, returned iu time for tbe de
jeuner which was giveD iu one of the building of the com
pany, and proved a grand affair. One thousand people
were feasted. Tbe Prince occupied a seat at a raised ta
ble with his suite. Tbe Governor General proposed
three regular toasts, “The tjueen,” “Tbe Priuce Consort,"
and “The 1’Hdob of Wales," all of which were received
with immense cheering. The I’riucc bowed iu respouse,
and then, in a char and audible voice, proposed, “Tbe
Governor Geueral of Cauada and the prosperity of the
Grand Truuk lUilway." These were received with tre
meuduous cbeeriug, during which tbe Prince bowed and
retired. lie then walked about inspecting tbe works,
guarded by hi* suite, but followed by a rabole like that
which used to gather around the Japautse iu the street*
of New York. He seemed very much annoyed, as this
is the first lime such a thing has occurred. Soon after he
entered a carriage aud drove to bis quarters, the house
of dou. John Rose, which is uow occupied by Sir Fen
wick Williams.
The gcutlemcn of the New York committee were in
troduced to the Prince by Lord Lyons, and they were
well received and netted with every possible attention.
They rode iu tbe royal car.
During the Prince's absence a great scramb'e, in which
the ladies joined, occurred at the bridge, over the flow
ers, evergreens, gold fringe and other decoratious,as me
morials of the occasion. All the curtains aud tioweis
were thus torn down.
The Boston Fusiliers took a prominent part in the re
ception, and were heartily cheered. On Friday night
they serenaded Lady Franklin, and were introduced to
her.
On Saturday night the city and shipping in the harbour
were splendidly illuminated.
The Victoria Bridge is a part of the Grand Trunk rail
way, aud spaas the river St. Lawrence a short distance
from Montreal. It was commenced in 1854 and fiuLhel
iu 1858, at a cost of (7,0011,000. Iu rouud figures theie
are 8,000,000 cubic feet of masonry, 10,0oo tons of iron
iu the tubes, 2,000,000 rivits, each ouc fastened by a
peculiar process, aud 168 acres of painting.
The bridge contains twenty-five openings of 242 feet,
with tbe exception of the centre span, which is 830
feet, hence the leugtb ol tunc is o.oihi reel, approacneu
hy embankments, the Montreal eml being 1,200 feel, the
Southern shore of 800 feet, which, including the abut
meuts, makes a total of 2,084 feet, or one and three
quarter miles, nearly. Tbe abutments are, at tbe base,
each 278 feet long, divided iuto cells of twenty-four feet,
with intervening lie walls of five icet, but at tbe top
they correspond exactly with the length of a tube 242
feet iu leng-ti, aud, indeed, are carried up to the same
height, the cells being tilled with gravel. To resist the
thrust of tbc ice, both the abutments aud piers are fur
nished with a cut-water, which meets the pier proper 30
feet above summer water, tbc whole height ol tbe abut
ment being thirty-six feet above summer water, the cen
tre pier being sixty feet.
The force on tbo river during the last season of its
construction was a small artny. It consisted ol six
steamboats, seventy-two barges, besides several small
craft, in timed, in all, by fiOO, besides 450 men at work
in the stone quarries, and 2,00u others, variously em
ployed.
LATF.R FRt*M CALIFORNIA.
THE DEMOCRATIC SPLIT—TliF, PARTY EQUALLY
DIVIDED.
Sr. Jossrns, <M Umuri) August 24 —San Francisco ad
vices to August 11 were received in litis city last night.
The various county Democratic Committees throughout
the State have been holding meetings and have divided
iuto Douglas and Breckinridge wings, each wiug calling
separate county Conventions to elect delegates to one or
the other of the Democratic State ami Electoral Conven
tions. All these county committees were composed last
y, a- of Adminis ration Democrats. They row average
about an equal number of Douglas aud llteckinridge
ntcu. Tina is a favorable indication of tbe Douglas strug
gle in the State, as tbe Anti-Lecompton wing of the party,
composed last year almost entirely of Douglas men, was
not leprcHCtited in any of the county committees.
It is now understood that tbc sixteen State Senators
who bold over, acd will vote for the United States Sena
tor next winter, are about equally divided into Douglas
and Breckinridge men.
The El Dorado county Committee have had two meet
ings, and stood live for Brcckiuridge, four for Douglas,
and three on the fence. The Breckinridge wiug called a
county Convention for thp 8d ol September, and the bal
ance of the committee adjourned till to-day without any
action.
Thirty-seven Democrats of Nevada county, who sup
ported the Administration candidate last year, have pub
i.-ht-d a long address to the Democrats of that county,
urging them to support Douglas and Johnson. The list
is headed by John K. McConnell.
The Tuoiumne county Democratic central committe
met at Sonora on the mb of August. Eight members
were present and one proxy. They stood 5 for Breckin
ridge aud 4 for Douglas, and being unable to agree, they
separated. The Breckinridge wiug called a convention
at Sonora on the 1st of September, and the Douglas
branch on the 30th of August.
It is stated by bis frieuds that Senator I.atham con
templates returning to Washington with his family by
the Overland Mail route, aud that be will commence the
journey by the 1st of September. This indicates that he
will take little or no part iu the political canvass iu this
State.
A correspondent writing from Shaws Flat, Tuolumne
county, says ns to political matters in that county : “Old
Tuolumne you may sot down for the regular nominees.
Douglas and Johnson sure, unless a great change shall
take place before the election."
The San Jose Reporter, after putting up the Breckin
ridge (lag, has pulled it down again.
Senator Watson, of Santa fruz, whoac time does not
expire till the close of the next Legislature, is represent
ed by the Placerville Californian to be a Douglas man.
Tint Tkxas Taot nuts.—It would appear from the fol
lowing extract from the New Orleans Picayune, that the
idea of freedom for the slave, in any other than a merely
licentious sense, has never been entertained by the mov
ers or abettors of the insurrection in Texas. Tbe Pica
“In looking through the great mass of detail* with
which the Texas paper* have been loaded, we see no evi
dence of any concerted plot among the negroes for per
manent insurrection against the authority of the whites.
There are no specifications given, even surmised, that
those who were m the plot agaiust life or properly had
any serious plan for setting themselves at liberty, or pro
ject* arranged for escaping from the punishment of those
crimes. So far as we can understand it, as developed,
the purpose* of the conspiracy were mere wanton mis
chief—murder and arson—without any definite idea of
what the actors were to gain for themselves. Doubtless,
the uppermost idea was that of unrestrained not, the
luxury of unbounded license, in the immediate gratifica
tion of every animat appetite, the orgies of idleness,
gluttony and lust. But there does not seem to have been
a directing mind or definite purpose, beyond the satur
nalia of the hour, where they should go, and what they
should do after the success of their murderous purposes,
iu order to escape the iroo grasp of punishment.”
A Political Party Attacked with Stoxis. Ac.—
Car* and Htn l* Smaihrd.—Tbe delegation of Philadel
phia People’s Clubs, that went to Norristown on Thurs
day Digbt, were attacked upon their arrival by a strong
party of ruffians, who dislike the evident popular move
ment against the ranks of the Democracy. The rowdies
were beaten off and di*nersed, but not until they had
wounded a number of Philadelphians with stone* and
missiles. When the Philadelphians got Into the cars to
return home, the attack was renewed, and a volley of
stones thrown into the cars. One of the vehicles was bad
ly smashed in, and some of the passengers hurt, though
not seriously. Not satisfied with this, a further attempt
wus made. Besides the twenty-two cars that carried out
the People’s Clubs, there were a number of large Omni
busses, one of which was loaded with more than fifty
passengers. In hope of overturning the vehicle, the vil
Hans so blockaded the road with fence rails a* to throw
the omnibus down a bill in case they approached the
barrier.

A geod deal of Btrley has also nearly retched maturity; but ike

THE HARVEST IN ENGLAND.
The Mark Lane Express, of 13th, presents a gloomy
and discouraging account of the agricultural pospecta In England.
It says:
The further the season advances, the more do we live agilnst the
hope of a earveet A co d t^getiial spring might b? followed by a
more propitious wmmir, arAl vrgtta lon burst out all at ouce Into
that bioom a d bk atom, which shall change as with the wave of a
wand the whole face of the country. But this year It has not been
so, and we now hepa aim st agaimt heps. The westher has only
S»ne on from bad to worse; and with the corn crop doe, the hay la
Dot yet carried. l>av by day the prospect only becomes ll.e more
serious, while the very pleaeur j ssekeis put aside their own little
personal comforts and enioymeot-, lo turn to the graver conside
ration of what the people will do for bread. Thu least gtlmp'e of
sunshine bu; leads one, Wiil o-ihe Wisp like, to tr .-aur disapp* ir.t
m-nt. Tli- m.ton's changes lira g only the m.-re raia; and the eorte
p uittota o fieri no other spectacula than another wet day. * 0
The bad w«a'h-r of the last few days has, we are ln:lin-d to fear,
come only as the climax to all that has ar tl -patsd It. In a word.
Uit if jury note irrepurxilU. Harvest, of course, will be Utr.
while, 'f we are to believe wt at we see, It mutt he an unusually bad
one Nothing coo d be more deplorable than the scene that every
wh« re met the eye from our seat In the up train. lo place of the
rich waving wheat ears standing well up from «h- stem, and grad
u illy but quickly ripen'ng to their golden hue, whit a co d chill
blasted the vtrw ! There, in place of the ready boun Iful crop was
a dank, tangle I mass of win might be coarse, uncared-for, reedy
herbage- lsld everywhere«o flat, s » hopelessly beaten down by the
wind and the rriu, that if It he coro lo Die ear, It must sorely rot
or rnllUtw sell lief, never to riaj ag4 n to welcome the too tardy
sole of the long urrylr g sun ! Aul still the rain comes merciltss
ly down, ouly to flatun tyct more closely into the rauce sodden
earth, while jaar neighbor bids yoa mark the h«y that hr knows
has t ern out for three weeks or more, an I that can never be worth
carting at ad, save .t be Into the dung yard.
The weather, la fa t. In Its influence on agriculture is fait tend
iug’to the most calamitous consequences. The loss, of course, will
be a national mr; for su h “bid limes for farm.ra" will he bad
times f r everybody. At so trying a period It may be weti to take
the iiiott encouraging view we can of our prrsnecU, but is a yet
greater duty n t to clfruite or to at empt to shirk the Ills we have
to contend with Every pasting ahower will tell mors heavily
agaist the harvest, c:roe when this mar; while cne or two tro*esuch ,
wet days as we have experienced during the past viek will so to
make tome of the wheat not world cutting. Aa It is, there Is a de*l i
of hay not w rth carrying home; and many farmers hare already
nckoned up their heavy ionci and future outlay in tills w ee. Bo
far, the sad certamtv Is but tio pslpably apppsrent. Th re Is the
chance of s »ine ote* r district* n A being so serious'? affected ae
trio#e we have rcc-ntly posed t rough. Indeed, oo th-* bo;den of
flcotland, only a Week sloe**, appraranc*--* srere far better, but we
can only repeat that the mDchief must r»e grcsier the claacr we
approtch the in gathering time. It i« the eff.-ct of the psst few
days we base to look to But It rains even aa we wr.te. The sun
has not he* n seen the wh dr day thiough; and while the harvest
must c backward, we fear It ruust al o he In every way deficient—
bad in the sample and short In th* bulk.
