We publish' below the letter of Lord Macaulay, written on the subject of our Government, and before result! con firmed in this country that a Democracy must at laBt prove a failur. It ia clearly time for men, who have endured, as we have, the tortures of a Democratic despotism, to think id reason about the future which must be pregnant with important change. Therefore, we give the opinion of a dis tinguiBned historian on the Jefferson sys tem, and which was the Democracy that controlled the Government for seventy five years. ' The old politician who is alive to-day will look back on these halcyon days of the Republic with eyes swimming in affection, and sigh for the return of their brightness, which lasted bat a short period, and then was obscured by the dark passion and corruption of our peo ple. The very foundation upon which this temporary structure was built con tained a little silken worm, which soon burst its covering, and then began to feed upon the very life of the govern ment, the effect of which can be easily traced in our times. Democracies have in all ages of the world's history contained the germ from whence springs into exis tence the many-headed monster, that consumes its life after having pulled down the temple wherein the Goddess of Liberty was wont to dwell. It ii the - extreme of folly for men now to think of rebuilding onr old Government upon the ideas of Jefferson and Jackson, who but conferred a brief beneGt upon their race; and as for the country now, it would have been better they had never lived. This is the letter referred to aboe: Holly Lodok, Kkksinotok, LowppK.l May 23, labl. i Saury S. Randall, Esq., Dear Sib: You are surprised to learn that I have not a high opinion of Mr. Jef ferson, and I am surprised at your sur prise. 1 am certaia that I never wrote a line, and that I never, in Parliament, in conversation, or even on Ibe hustings a place where it ii the fashion to court the populace uttered a word indicating an opinion that the supreme authority in a State ought to be entrusted to the mi-jor-iiy of citizens told by the bead; to other words, to the poorest and most ignorant part or society. 1 Dave long Deen con vinced that institutions purely Demo cratic must, sooner or later, destroy lib erty or civilization, or both. ' In Europe, where the population is dense, the effect of such institutions weald be almost instantaneous. What happened lately ia France is an example. In 1848 a pure Democracy was estab lished there. During a short time there was reason to expect a general spoliation a natural bankruptcy, new partition of the soil, a maximum of prioes, a ruio oos load of taxation laid on the rich for the purpose of supporting the poor in idleness. finch a syitem would in twenty years have made France as poor and barbarous as France of the Carlovingians. Hap pily the danger was averted; and now there is a despotism, a silent tribune, and enslaved pre. Liberty is gone, but civilization has been saved. I have not the smallest doubt that if we had a purely Democratic government here, the effect would be the same. Either the poor would plunder the rich, and civilization , would perish, or order, and property would be saved by a strong military gov ernment and liberty would perish. Yon may think that your country enjoys an exemption from these evil. I will frankly own to you that I am of f ery different opinion. Your fate I believe to to be certain, though it is deferred by a physical cause. As long as yon have a boundless extent of fertile and unoccu nid land, vour laboring: classes will be fur more at ease than the laborer of the Old World: and while that is the re. the Jeffersonian Dolicy may con tinoe to exist without cansing any fatal ..l.miiv. Bat the time will come when New England will be as thickly peopled as Old England. Wages wilt be as low nd will fluctuate os much with yon as with as. You will have your Manches i.ra and Birminebamt: and in these Bir mingham! and Manchester hundreds of thousands ot artisans win assuredly no ..m.infi out of work. Ibeo your in amotions will be fairly brought to the Distress every where makes the laborer mutinous and discontented, and inclines him to listen with eagerness to agitators, hntaii Kim that it is a monstrous in iotilii that on man should have a mil lion while another cannot get a full meal. In bad years there is plenty rf grumbling here, and a little rioting; but it matters little; for here the sufferer are not the rulers the supreme power is in tb hands of a class numerous indeed, bnt select. of an educated class of a class which is1 and know itself to be deeply interested in tht security of property and the main tenance of order. Accordingly, the mat' content are firmly, yet gently, re. trained The bad time is got aver without robbing the wealthy to relieve the indigent The enrint-s of siliooal prosperity ioon begin 10 flow again; work is plentiful, wage ana til ( tranauilitr and cheerful ness. . I have eeen Englaad pass three or four time through such cnticai sea .nn. . T h.v nWribed. Threugh such tba TTnimd States will have to 'pan in the course of the next century, if not ot this, now, win juu f ""! them? . .... I t,ort!l w!h vou ttood deliverance, unn and wishes are at war. and T .nnnt hnln foreboding the worst. It is quite plain that your Government will never be able to restrain a distressed and discontented majority. For with you the majority is the Goverrnment, and has the rich, who are alway a minority, abso lutely at it mercy. The day will come when in the State of New York a multi tude of ueoDle. none of whom ha had more than half a breakfaat or expect to have more than half a dinner, will choose a Legislature. Is it possible to doubt what sort of Legislature will be chosen ? On one side i a statesman preaching pa t lence, respect for vested rights, and strict observance of public faitb. On the other . . . . 1 a. il. . hand is a demagogue ranting uouui iuo tyranny of capitalist usurers, and asking why anybody should be permitted to drink champagne and ride in a carriage, while thousands of honest folks are in want of necessaries. Which of the two candidate ia likely to be preferred by a workingman who hear his children cry in. nnra hra.H ? I seriously aDDrehend that vnn will, in some such season of adversity as I have deseribed, do things which will prevent prosperity from re turning; that you will act like people would in a year of scarcity, devour all the seed corn, and thus make the next year a year not of scarcity, but of abso lute famine. There will be, I fear, spoliation. 1 he spoliation will increase distress. The distress will produce fresh spoliation. There is nothing to stay you. Your Con stitution is all tail and no anchor. A I aid before, when a society has entered on this downward progress, either civili zation or liberty must perish. Either some Cieiar or Napoleon will seize the reins of government with a strong hand, or your Republic will be as fearfully plundered and laid waste by barbarians in the twentieth century as the Roman Empire was in the fifth, with this differ ence, that the Huns and Vandals, who ravaged the Roman Empire, came from without, and that your Huns and Vandals . will have been engen dered within your country by your own institutions. Thinking this, of course I cannot reckon Jefferson among the benefactor of mankind; I readily admit that hi intention were good and his abilities considerable. Odious stories have been circulated about hi private life; but I do not know on what evidence those rest, and I think it probable that they are false, or monstrously exagger ated. I have no doubt that I shall derive both pleasure and information from yonr account of him. I have the honor to be, dear sir, yonr faithful servant, T. B. Macacl.t. THE t'ITT COUNCIL. The City Council meet this evening again, we are informed, and it is to be hoped tbey may consider, favorably, the proposition of T. E. Brown & Co., who have performed faithfully their contract in laying a most excellent pavement.and thereby improving the condition and ap pearance of our streets so much. It is merely a question of business to bo con sidered by the Board of Aldermen, who should deal even-handed justice to both the city and Messrs. Brown k Co. The city ia without doubt liable for the work doue, and should make the best trade possible one that would be just and equitable between all parties conoerned. We have confidence in the Board, and hope they will view thi matter in it proper light. The President and the Conservative Committee from Virginia. Wash. Cor. Charleston Courier, May 28. Tbe President has had another, and, no doubt, final interview, with the Conserva tive Committee from Virginia, in rela tion to the article of the State Constitu tion fjr county organiz ilioos. The President's own suggestion in opposi tion to that article were repeated to him and again acknowledged as very weiubty. He bad said that the plan would answer for a densely peopled State like Massa chusetts, but would be too expensive and troublesome for a sparse population, its listened with courtesy to all tbe views pre sented bv tha committee, but finally ob jected to the proposed exception of the article on the ground tnai it was toe ooij provision under which the education ol the blacks could be provided tor and se cured. Therefore, it is now certain that the Constitution, if adopted, must be taken with tbe county and township or ganization. In some counties, where the blacks predominate, they can vote them selves into all the local offices. On the other hand the Legislature is to fix the salaries of all these officers, and it will be proposed that tbey shall be honorary and not comDeocative. The blacks are in a minority in Virginia, and their numbers are diminishing very rapidly ny reason of emigration and mortality. While the demand and supply of white labor in1 oreases there is less room for the blacks, and they must go south to tbe cotton fields for employment A Texas Committee ha also waited on the President, and urged an early day (or the constitutional election in that state, so that the State muy he represented at the next session, ibe 'resident ex pressed his hearty concurrence in their views, and sari tbat be would Dl a day for the election, quite as early as General Reynolds would deem advisable. It will be before November, and perhaps as early as Asizu.t. Mr. Motley, tbe frendent says, did not go without instructions., no. ue went, as General Butler says, with instructions to do nothing and say nothing about the Alabama claims, lie ia not to oiler to John Bull tbe dish of " hnmble pie " pre pared by Mr. Kumner, and a to which, Punch, in it clever carioalure, masts Reverdy Johnson say, "I've dined with him a good deal lately, and he won't eat that I'll promise you. ' The President and Secretary Fish may well hesitate, as tbey do, before they commit this Government to tbe view taken by Mr, Sumner upon the effect of our blockade. 1 hat our blockade jasti fied the recognition of belligerency, there can be little doubt The Uaited States Supreme Curt so considered it For instance, there was the case of the Hia watha, a vessel and cargo belonging to citizens oi the lonlederate States, sail ing from Buenos Ayre and bound for New York, before her master knew of tbe war or of the block ado. Tha vessel was captured and held by onr courts to be good prize, under the prize laws. Thus tbe blockade was not a merely municipal recognitioa as Mr. bumner hold. Lio.

Last evening a few ama teurs and professional musicians and members of the press assembled at the residence of Rev. Dr. Wheat, on Madi son street, to hear some music from Miss Generes, an accomplished and beautiful young lady of New Orleans. This lady baa one of tbe most charming soprano voices it has ever been onr good fortune to listen to. During the past year she has been tbe leading voice in the choir of Trinity Chnrcb, in New Orleans, and that she succeeded in satisfying the crit ical taste of that most fastidious congre gation, guarantees a certainty of her great excellence. The musical service of Trinity has a world-wide reputation, and the vocalization that has made name for it, is due to this lady especially. It is m possible for ns to discuss the peculiar merits of ber voice, but we are positive o stating that it is one of the most vig orous, sweet, soft and clear organs tbat our good people have ever listened to. In its ringing and ornamental tones there are much freshness, flexibility and wonderful beauty. We hope that our citizens will warmly welcome this lady, who is uol ouly one of the most thorough musicians in New Orleans, but also one of tbe most cherished and beloved orna ments of soeiety In tbat city. She has consented, with Mr. Leo Wheat, the pianist, to assist Mr. Henry Farmer at his concert, next Friday evening, when the lovers of music will enjoy a rare en tertainment, CHAMBI or COMMSKC.

NEW YORK. Niw Yosk, June 2. Tbe UeraliS London special says : " Mr. Motley, it is understood to-day, addressed a letter to Lord Clarendon, informing him of his arrival in London, and officially request ing the appointment of a day for the pre sentation of his credentials. As the Prince of Wales holds a levee to-dy, to-morrow has been named as the more fitting time for thu mipisterial introduc tion, Mr. Moran, Charge HAJfairts, at tended the levee and was presented. The burden of the newspaper articles published here to-day, on the subject of Mr. Motley's arrival, are generally to the. effect that the writers find in his speech in Liverpool an indication of the spirit of the instructions given to him by Pres ident Gra,n.t The Pall Mill Gazette beasts that America has backtd down before British pluck, end that under theso circum stances the arrival of the new Minister ia of small importance; and the best result they anticipate from Mf.

It is anxious to know tbe basis on which the new deliberation are to be conducted, and adds: "But if Mr. Motley's snggeslions to Lord Claren don are pervaded by the spiilt breathed at Liverpool, the Americans may reason ably hope tor success. Eogland would be content to accept a settlement ar ranged by Lord Clarendon and Mr. Mot ley." Tbe Telegraph says any proposals made by Mr. Motley will be weighed on their merits.

It is rumored that E.rl Sponcer, Lord Lieutenant of Ire land, is about to resign. Paiis, June 1. The JJeraliT t special says a splendid farewell American ban quet was givea to General Dix at the Grand Hotel last aieht Between three and four hundred persons were present Washburne, the General' successor, Bur- lingame, and Bullock, of Mas.acha.etta, were guest. Mr. Cawdine, of New York presided. General Dix, in response to the tosit of his health, delivered an elo quent speech, thanking the assembly for the compliment paid him. He reviewed the patt progress ard referred to the fu lure prospeot of their common country alluded to tbe completion of tbe Pacifio railroad, and said it realized the prophslio dream and great thought of Columbus, y opening a western passage from Europe to the Indies. After alluding to the ambition of the American people, tho General said: " We may trust in Providence for a con tinnance of our national prosperity jfin our intercourse with foreign States we oonform to those rules of international right and obligation which have received tbe sanction of the civilized world, de manding only that the same maxims of reciprocal justice shall be sacredly re spected by olhers; that the high seas shall be recognized as a common pathway, end that all nations shalr be free from all pretension of supe riority or arbitrary control". Ia rela tion to France, he said there existed be tweon America and France from the earliest period a strong bond of sffinity, which should neverbe forgotlea. France came to our aid at a trying period in the infancy of our country, and during the very throes of national prostration she rendered essential services to Washing ton by the sword.' ef her soldiers, Ro- cbatnbeau and Count De Grace; while D'Estainge, Trainon and the celebrated Paul Jones at sea un sheeted their swords in .the cease of independence. Owing to this fact, misunderstandings between the two conntries, for nearly a century, have been few, unimportant, and brief in .duration, leaving no rankling feeling of resentment behind. After an eloquent tribute to the generosity of Na poleon and the worth' and virtne of the Empress, he referred to the qualifica tions of his successor, Mr. Washbnrne. Speeches were subsequently made by Burlingame, Washburne and others.
