' The arrival of Hie Canada brings later news from Europe, and shows definitely that nego tiations are steadily progressing, and the pros pec's of a speedy peace beyond a doubt. . The Cincinnati Commercial of Tuesday says : "The fact that Western Europe is dancing with joy at the prospect of peace, while Ihe movement is unpopular, and received with sullen anger in Russia, shows that the Allies will not be likely to insist upon very rigid and Severe interpretations of the peace propose tions; but, though assuming the swagger victors, they will be disposed lo conciliation and compromise. In Paris and Vienna the prospect of a speedy pacification, is hailed with enthusiastic joy. The English and Rus sians grumble. John Bull feel very badly, ud would like another smashing round, counts the costs, and while he is resolved eeem very warlike, and it is the policy of ceprrsenlstive man, Palmerston, lo give voice for war, there is no doubt but be will suffer himself to be let down easy and recon ciled to assume the virtue (having it not,) generosity lo his foe.- The real victory of Allies is in snatching the "sick man" from Autocratic physician. The Russian march to ward the Mediterranean is checked. The course of Empire, which has rolled westward for ages, is turned back. Imperial Constan tinople has fallen into the hands of the pow ers of the west. Instead of Cossa ks on the Rhine, the Zouaves are on the Hellespont.'

The f.rst Slate election which comes off in 1855 is New Hampshire, says Hie Cincinnati Enquirer, which makes choice of Governor anil Legislature on the lllh of March next. U being the opening of the Presidential cam paign, as well as the resilience of President Pir.acR, the result will be lookid to with much nterest. Since 1S?9 the Sta'e has been Dem mratic every'year, witn the excepiijn of 184G and IS 55. She stood firm even in the hold cider exci ement or 1810. and, save Illinois, wu the only Northern Slate that gave Let electoral vote to Mr. Van Cur km, the Demo cratic candidate. But last year the Know. Nothing and Black Republican fanaticism combined were too much for her gallant De mocracy. The allied force of fanaticism ard bigotry carried the Slate b) majorities varying from five to ten thousand, and by that means seemed the two United Slates Senators. There has been since a great reaction in pub- lio opinion in favor of the Democrat, and we have great confidence that she will return this vcar into the I emocralic camp. We do nit believe her sterling Democratic yeomanry can be huml'Uvgcd twice in succession. They have in the field a very able and popular candidate for Gjvenior, Mr. Jous S. Wells, who has been for some lime very industriously canvass ing the State, n is Hindoo and Black-Repub lican compettitor is H on Metcale, the pies ent incumbent. The Democrats are working vigorously for success.- Notwithstanding the very inclement weather they had lately, a very large mast meeting at Concord, Ibe capital of the State, which was addressed by Senator Wrtis of California, Mr. Oaa of South Car olina. General Lmir of Oregon, nod Howki.l Cobb of Georgia. These gentlemen made able and splendid addresses, and coming as they do from all purls of the country, and uttering the same' polii ica I sentiments from thes.-.me desk, it afforded a beautiful illustration of Ihe nationality of the Democratic parly. - Every where through this broad Union the creed o the Democratic party is the same. N-jw Hampshire Democrats agree with those of South Carolina and Georgia, that the people f every State and Territory should decide the nature of '.heir own local and Democratic in stitutions without Congressional interference, Messrs. Cobb and Oaa are to address other meetings in the State, and will draw immenre rowds to liear them. While Senator Welle was speaking in Concord, over a thousand persons were unable to get into the large hall where the meeting was held. Such is the spirit of the people that the Black-RepuLli Cans and Know-Nothings may expect with great certainty a severe thrashing at tbetlec- lion. ' ' ' Harmony of the Black Republican and Know Nothings. From different sections of the slate we that sly work is going on by secret hitters from Washington, dictated by members of Ihe Ohio delegation, and written by their friends loun deimine others, in their respective districts, and thereby affect Hietr political destruction in the . "Republican" party. We had heard of these things some time smce, but was not satisfied oi i' truth until we saw it confirmed by letter in the Cleveland Leader. ' This had special reference to Mr. Leiler, and we learn that the same course of policy is being pur sued towst'ls others who were heretofore members of the democratic party. Of course it is no business of ours, but we mention it only to say that, it only confirms what we have so often said, Ihnt these men were only used ssa tail lo the Abolition Know Nothing kite, which was to earry the old abolition whig el ementi into power, over the cry of Kansas anil Nebraska.
