(L/"A new secret political association has been or ganized at Albany, calling themselves ''Rabbits."— Its character is not divulged. OLyKnow-Nothingism is below par in Arkansas. The Legislature of that State has passed resolutions denouncing the Order, by a vote ot 'JI to (>. l)?ath of the tzar Nicholas. By the Africa, which arrived at Halifax 17th inst. we have the important announcement o! the death ol Nicholas, Czar of Russia. This intelligence was communicated To the House ol Peers by Lord >' b-ar endon on March 2d. It came from two points—Ber lin and the Hague—and in both instances wa- tele graphed by the British resident ministers at the city. Lord Pal rue rs ton made a similar statement, o.i the same evening, in the House of Commons. i here seems to be no doubt of the correctness of the report. The Emperor had been suffering from an attack ol in fluenza, but his death was occasioned by pulmonary apoplexy. Nicholas 1., Paulovitch, will be-a ceed ed by the crown prince, Alexander, who is thirty seven years of age. He at present commands the Imperial Guatdsor the army, and is stationedut War saw, as chief of that division. The late F.mperor was a man of daring anil un equalled ambition, of great powers ol endurance both mental and physical, capable ot planning vast enter prises, and gifted with those qualities of mind which enabled him to grasp the necessities as well as the outlines of all fcis schemes. His bold, resolute bear ing, combined with the serious, religious element of his character,made him almo.-t a god with the Russian people, who are superstitmusly inclined, and wed ded to the Greek Church as firmly as they are to the Russian Emperor. In the early part ot his reign Nicholas laid his iron hand with terrible severity up on a budding rebellion against his authority. One bloody, remorseless sacrifice was enough. It exhib ited the character of the man to his people; ami those who loved him not, at least flesi-ted from any furth er machinations against his authority. The one main object that, tike a star, led Nicholas all his hie-long iournev, was the glory and renown of his Empire.— For that he lived, labored, and fought fierce battles, both on.the field and in the Councils of Nation-. With him Russia was all. He hd dwelt upon the past with all a student's love, with all a warrior's stern delight, and what his anre-tors had begun be deteimined to carry forward. This promise iia- been kept faithfully, and in the midst ot a war partly na tional, fully religious; but still intended to strength en Russian influence in Europe, death cFo-ed ins e vehtful career. W hat effect the death of Nicholas will have upon the present conflict cannot be even surmised at tin earlv day. It is said that in Europe the peace party are -anguine that it will lie followed by a cessation of hostilities and permanent peace. But that is mere conjecture. Alexander wa- not only deeply attach ed to his lather as a son, but as a statesman he plac ed the most unbounded confidence in the purity ol his mot ives, the comprehensiveness of his plans, and the fidelity of his patriotism. He knew the secrcl springs and motives which actuated the late Emper or, familiar with all bis plans for the future, and hence w ill not rudely be driven fioru TEat "course which commanded the confidence of his father when living. Beside'-, an abandonment of the c i pu'gp, immediately at the death of the Emperor, would l> a reflection on his conduct not likely to receive t lit sanction of the crown Prince. Like Ids father, A1 exander has now a lii-torica! character to su-tuin.— The glory anil renown of Russia is committed to hi? care. The war commenced by tbe late Czar is r.oi without a great leading idea. Wilh that idea Alex ander i familiar. To it he no doubt gave rns assent and hence any peace to meet Ins concurrence wil have to bring with it the darling objects of Rus-iar ambition. In this light we view the death'of Nicho las. It does not, to our mind, increase the chances o peace, though it may produce a material change ii European policy on the port of the Allies— Arfru*. The rumored death of the Czar is doubted by sev eral ofour coterrporaries. but is generally believed a: Washington. Alexander I!., his oldest son, succeed. . to the throne. SPRING ELECTIONS.

A Party cl Vitality. Our fi iends behold clearly now what many of them saw but darkly belbre. Except the Democratic party, there is no public political organization in Michigan of any vitality. —De- ; trait Advertiser. Such is the confession of the Detroit Adver | User (Whig) in an article concerning the recent . chatter election in Detroit, at which the Demo • i ctatic ticket was elected over a "fusion" of all j ' other political elements. The admission of the 1 Advertiser that "except th- Democratic party, j . there is no public political organization in Mich- j ' igan of any vitality," is equally true in its ap- j • plication to most of the other states of the Union, j i The Whig party ex'sts in fragmentary sec . j tions in some parts of the country, but it is so j - | hopelessly distracted, and in different States j ' | holds to such diverse views, and is to such an i ' j extent, merged in other organizations and isms, ; I that it cannot be said to have any "vitality." J i | There has been during the last six or eight -! months an attempt to tbrm a new party, under ; 1 j the cognomen of "Republican," based on the j j i anli-slaverv element, and composed ofthe Whigs, j l ! the Abolitionists, and such Democrats as could j i ! be seduced into " fusion," but we hardly think j " j it can be said to have " any vitality" now, al- ; j j though it showed some signs of Lie during the _ j fall campaign. e j The Know-Nothings constitute the only party ■ ! except the Democratic, which can now be said ' e lo be really "alive and kicking." But theirs is n | a sort of spasmodic "vitality," which has no cle- i g i ment of life to sustain it permanently, and which, - i how* ver lively and active it may be for a time, j *' j must with no great delay expire. e j The Democratic party lias the vitality' of full i • j developed, vigorous manhood. It rests upon e j principles sound and enduring, and embracing j the whole country in their scope. It can ral _l ly its followers throughout the length and - i breadth of the land, animated by a common pur- j j pose, and co-operating ki support of doctrines j j ■ equally cherished by all.

" A gentleman by the name of Josselyn, who, I „! understand* was a native of New York city, e and who received a portion of his medical niu -1 cation in that city, has been h re for the last six ~I or eight years, and occasionally practising bis >t j profession as a physician. He married a weai ;- j thy lady, a native of the island, some three or T > lour years ago, and his life since that time has been comparatively quiet and retired He was known as a most peaceable and inoffensive man, Ai l and was never suspected, that I could learn, ol n being engaged in anv of the attempts at revolu tion which are so much talked about, and about which everybody knows so little. But in some ,r way he became obnoxious to (heauthorities, and it is supposed he has been watched for a consid erable length of lime. Yesterday morning he received some insolence horn a straggler from one of the captain general's most respectable body of troops. A quarrel was the result, which ett- I ded in the man with the musket having the \\>ap ' | on wrenched from his hands, and himself spraw ' j led upon the plaza, where the rencontre took j place. In about an hour afterwards his house • v | was entered with the least possible ceremony bv ' j a dozen or more of such wretches as tiit' onp Sit* ; j had just used so roughly, a pair of irons put upon a his hands, and himself walked off to the Moro. i A double-barrel shot gun and a revolver, which '* j were found on the premises, were taken along ' i with him; but whether these will be sufficient j to convict film ofa conspiracy against the gov ., i eminent, lam unable to say. Perhaps Concha, it , under whose authority the arrest was made, could give a more certain answer." ~ n Applications jor Bounty Lund Warrants.— ._ It is stated that already some fifteen hundred e applications have been made for bounty lands under the law passed by Congress only a week p ago. On Monday three hundred and fifty such applications were received. The Star says : It is estimated at the Pension Bureau that 5 ~ about 301),000 such applications will be made ie under the Jaw, requiring 32,000,000 of acres 5 ~ to satisfy them. The amendments made in the bill by the House, reduced the quantity of lands - to le taken up under it from more than 100,- ie j 000,000 acres to about the quantity we name 1 above. From tbe Philadelphia Argus. tiii; Biirnsn misjstry. The news bv th< Pacific announces another Ministerial crisis in England. Tbe Palmerston composite ministry has dissolved. Four of the principal members, Mr. Gladstone, Sir James Graham, Mr. Sidney Herbert, and Mr, Card well, have seceded. The reasons assigned for this step on the part of the late Ministers is the adoption of .Mr. Roebuck's motion For a Commit tee of Inquiry into the management of war.— The notice of tbis committee was the burnt! that exploded under Lord Derby and bis Ministry, and now its selection has bjowti at least four of the new Ministry out of their seats. It was supposed that a reconstruction ot the Ministry would have satisfied Mr. Roebuck and the par ty he represents, but Lord Palmerston had ! scarce announced his assistants, when it became j apparent that there was a settled, determined* ninthly in the house of Commons, r.one the less formidable and determined because it did not burst forth with impatience or vehemence at the very commencement of the new adminis tration of the government. This state of feeling was early appreciated by the new Premier, and he offered to the House of Commons the gov ernment as its committee, and stated that gov ernment, in fact, bad commenced, those very re forms, and had sent nut commissioners, or was sending them, to inquire into all those abuses j which it was alleged existed in the Crimea.— | In this manner the crafty Minister endeavored to lull the storm which lie felt was pent up in the majority of the House of Commons. Hut this movement would not satisfy the progressive party. They clamored for the knife, not plaster and ointment to patch up the old system. The Horse Guard policy was be lieved to be at the bottom of those disasters which have destroyed (he finest army that ever left the shores of England, and inflicted a slain on the nation almost indelible in its effects, and this was the point to which a!! arrows were (lighted. After all the explanations and protestation* of the Premier, .Mr. Roebuck stat ed that he would persevere with his Commit tee: ami nominated an extremely hostile lisf.ev- j identiv constructed for the purpose of getting r,t all til" facts, no matter how hard tie v might tell against the government, or the Derby Min istry. At this juncture, a Cabinet Council was i held to consult with reference to this movement; which pietended mischief if not checked. Three j : of the members held firm to a tacit understand ing, strengthened bv Lord Palmerston's conver | sation and the admitted merits of the case, that! | Mr. Roebuck's motion for an incriminatory in-j qiiirv was to be resisted, lies position appeal-.i to have been contested bv Lord Palmerston, | with the support of the majority in the Cabinet, j Negotiations had been going on with Mr. Roe- j buck, and he had consented to what Ministers | considered a material change in the terms of! this motion ; and instead of a committee corr.po- j I ss-d entire!v of Members presumed to be anxious : fir a conviction, the list consisted of four gen tlemen usually regarded as supporters ol Gov- ; ernment, four opponents of Government, with j three regarded as independent, hut certainly not of a highly Ministerial cast. With the mo j tion thus modified, Lord Palmerston proposed to ; j agree : and from the sequel, it appears, that the ' ! majority of the Cabinet acquiesced to his course. The difference between* the majority and the j three dissentients proved to he irreconcilable, j j and then came the resignation of Mr. Cardwell, j and the selection of persons to till the vacant j Ministerial posts. Who are and who are not Ministers of Eng land isofsmall moment when compared with the question, What does the upheaving of the middling classes, represented by Mr. Roebuck, indicate? This management of the war, or j want of confience in Lord D--rbv, or Lord John Russell, mav he the surface reason. But are i there not deeper causes lying far beneath, whose , ! volcanic fires, long smothered, are now moving ! I the whole political fabric of England 1 Do not ! tiie cheers and sympathy which greet the labors j of Roebuck and b is associates show t hat the De ! mocracv of England are beginning to feel their true strength, and, like an awak'-ned giant, are j eager to meet their foe ? The Derby ministry failed. Then came Palmerston's and that, in less j than two weeks, has lost four of its members, j with a certainty also that, on a division in the j House of Commons, the majority would be ad j verse to the balance. The question now is, What ministry is likely to succeed when these i have failed ? The only possible government ' seems to lie a ministry acting under the d.irec- I tion of tlie House of Commons. In other i words, the people seem determined on acting ! through their immediate representatives in the I more popular branch of tin* legislature, and are j calling upou ministers to reflect their will, rath er than exercise ministerial functions without j accountability to trie country. Whatever may : be the conjectures which these changes' suggest, | one tbir.g is Certain, something more is de manded than any kind of reform yet indicated, | either official or parliamentary. A mere change jof men, either Whig, Tory, or conservative , i j wiil net satisfy the public. ,i Should Lord Palm'Tston's patchwork minis try he defeated on some important measure— which is more than probable—then cornea a dissolution of Parliament, and a new election, • which is, in fact, a bloodless ami partial revolu tion. The whole system and practice of the . aristocracy as exemplified in the history of the • present miserable and disgraceful conduct of the war will be put at issue before tin* people, examined and ciiticised. Can there be a doubt of the people's verdict? If—in the present House of Commons, elected with no reference . to this question of reform— the progressive spir it is strong enough to overleap all the old barri • ers and fasten its fingers around the throat of old systems and abuses, what may not be ex • pec ted of the people when aroused to net inn bv such events as have taken place within a twelve month? Tbe* working classes are already in

arms lor bread and the small land-holders whis per vengeance fiorn between their tight clench ed teeth. One Ministry after another passes . i before them like a picture, and still they are not , j satisfied. They have some how or other got , ! an idea that the institutions under which they j li*e require some invigorating renovation, some j principle which will bring them nearer to the | people, and this forms a staple ingredient in ail i their hopes. It is because Mr. Roebuck repre , seiits. to some fixtent, that leading thought in ' the House of Commons, that he is the idol of : the English middle classes at the present time. The distant future i pregnant with mighty re sults for England. Peace may be conquered or ' j won by diplomacy from Russia, but who shall • j still that tide which now swells to overflowing ' j in ten thousands of English hearts when think > j ingand talking of Constitutional liberty? That ■ j is the issue to be met and hetbre which a change 1 ; in the Ministry sinks into insignificance. i The advices by the Africa::, which arc to tbe 3d inst., represent Mr. Roebuck's committee as proceeding vigorously, and as an evidence of the earnestness with which the inquiry is to he pros ecuted, it is stated that on th- Ist ins!., Mr. Roebuck appeared at the Bar of the House of of Lord* with a message from the Commons, cit ing the Duke of New Castle to give evidence before the committee. TUG rKEMBGMV. Bennett, of the N. York -Herald, whose friend- : ship for the Know-Nothing Order was already j announced, in speaking of the Order and the next Presidency, says : "Who knows? Who can tell now whether this mysterious but powerful patty " ill exist in tact so long. Jf may in the interval he broken jup and dispersed.
