Nearly seventy years of uninterrupted rrosperity and secure re pone ? upen the foundation of that go?4rmncnt e? tablisbad by our ancestors had made an im pression upon the public mind that it tPsrita potsible a traitor would dare to enter for tho purpose of destruction?to change peace inH domestic war, the happiness of the millions Into [misery, their prosperity into adversity, ond their fidelity to our institutions into hatred of their existence. But that time Las come. It cannot be concealed?it cannot be denied." The Intelligencer pays a handsome compli ment to the ability displayed by Mr. Marcy in his reply to the declaration concerning Maritime Law adopted bj the Plenipoten tiaries of the Seven Powers in April last, but cannot yiekl full concurrence "to the senti ment cf the President as expressed in his an nual message to Congress of December 4.1854, and reproduced in the body of Mr. Marcy's present despatch, to ?he effect that " the pro position to enter into engagement* to forego a resort to privateers, in caae thia country should be forced into a war with a great naval Power, ia not entitled to more favorable consideration than would be a proposition to agree not to aeeept the aervicea of voluntoera for operations on land." The Intelligencer is none the less decided in its conviction that every consider ation of reason, humanity, and morality calls for the adoption of the principle now com mended by the United States to tho maritime nations of the world. EDITORIAL CORRESPONDENCE. Naw York, September 14, 1&>?. mw von*. i Nothing strikes the observing traveler with g 1 ater fnrce^th*n the ever-changing f?c9 of an American ci'y, nor is that an observable olsewbere within my experience as in this city cf Gotham. I bad cot been here pre vioualy for eighteen months, now a long time for an active business man in this country to be absent from New York, our great centre of commerce and enterprise. In that timo alter ations have taken place in the appearance of tiny of the city'a well known features and in cot a few of ita customs and manners I Cannot step to note here many particulars, yet I may mention the improvement on the Jersey side of the landing from which one crosses the North river from the New Jersey railroad. The docks of the railroad company iave been extended cut into the river hun dreds cf feet in lergtb, at a coat of hundreds of thousands of dollars. Thia had evidently beocme necessary thrcugh the great increase of interccurae between the two fides of the river, and thus illu'tratea the progress of the business of New York city. A change in the manners cf the runners for backs who are al lowed on the ferry boats, too, formed quite an agreeable feature of my entrance into the city. They were all extremely civil and aeemed to vie with each other in giving as little anoyance to travelers as possible. This is a capital change, indeed, bo far as the pub lic's comfort ia concerned. Heretofore I have fcund them aa great a nuisance aa those exer cising a similar calling in other American cities usually are. On Friday morning last nil orthem appeared to content them3elve3 with offering to accommodate the traveler in few and respectful words, and scrupulously t-> abstain from pressing themselves upon such cs did not aecm to bo gratified with their atten tions. It will be well indeed for tho tribe to i iiitate their example universally. There is an evident great decrease r,f street pauperism in New York I an# not now suffi ciently familiar with the statistics of the city to knew the exact causes of this decrease which is ao apjarcnt throughout all its great thoroughfares. Indeed, in tbo three days I have been here, I have not been accosted by a single beggar. Formerly they beiet me at ?very turn and coincr. Ihe poorest class of laboring people who formerly wore an air of tie mo t atject misery, se?m greatly to have im proved their condition. Indeed, the very apple women of New York now wear an air of con tentment and comparative independence, to which they formerly appeared, to nie at least, to be etrsngera. The general business of the eity waa never before ao prosperous ; and to that fact do I, in the absence of a familiar knowledge of the details of their histoVy for eighteen months past, attribute the remarka ble change that seems to have occurred in the status of th'ss who perform the hardest and meanest labwr hero. run orkra MareUek, the indefatigable, has com meneed hia season at the Academy cf Mu-ic, with La Grange, Amodi, Brignoli and a Mia* Phillip#, aiJ English or American girl.

Miss PhHlipt', though inferior professiomilly to the little French woman (whose namo I forget) who rei tiered the role of Azucena in Washington, svng it with much success. For an English or Ameri can woman she is s (great vocalist doubtlc.if; but not for an Itattaf or French woman. While the latter appeer born fcr singing and dancing professionally, it is exceedingly rare to find a female bom either in the United .'States or England bcoome really great in eriher of those branches of artistic life.

Suchr however, is the admitted fact among those abroad who know the details of tho history of opera. I predict for Max Maretsek a profitable seaeou.

American habits and Americas sympathies his profound studies, and to have profited amazingly by his labors first to ap preciate their peculiarities, and next to avail himself of them. rnc politics or the hour. The result of the Maine election has com pletely turned the heads of the Republicans here. The mass of them know little or noth ing about politics, and imagine that popular sentiment every where is identical with pop ular ?ent:scent in New England. They are anticipating the jr(mpt formation of Fremont and Dayton olectoral tickets in Virginia .u:d Maryland, and loragine that they have a fair chance of carrying those States in November next. The very recont -peech of tuo inevita ble Botts, in Richmond, is already being in stanced as proof that their hope for southern States is a reasonable one. It is useless to tell them that Botts, though a mau of talent, is universally considered a deranged man (at home) upon politics; and that however much a crowd may shout over hia points abusing or misrepresenting their opponents, he could not be elected to be a constable arn^ng those who know his political idioeyncracies; and further, that in the whole State of Virginia tbero are not ten men to the manor born, except Qua kers, who sympathize with him up?>n the slavery question; that it is mo&t unsafe to judge of southern purposes, southern views, &o . as prosented by Botts in his singular spccehc s, Ac., Ac. They are as crazed as he is up- u the slavery question, and will hearken only to those who follow hi3 example in practically pandering to their insane determination to de stroy tho Union In attempting to force tho South to submit to tho abolition of African slavery which is the ultima t/nt/e of their po litical movements I confess that I have lost all patience with them, and am prepared to await the issue of the approaching presiden tial election patiently and with unrutlled tem per. The Union, as made by our fathers, is as dear to me as to any man living. With the government in the hands of thoso holding to the doctrines of the Republican party as cnun ciatcd in their speeches and newspapers, I bc lievo it will bo a far greater curic to uiy own section of the Confederacy than anything that can possibly grow out of the prompt and firm exercise (f tho right to go out of the Union when that may be necersary for tho self-pres ervation of tho South. Knowing well that the South will not dream of continuing a national existcnco in connection with the North when tho government is in the hands of those ob taining power only on the northern popular prejudice against hor, who at the same time acknowledge no constitutional, legal, or moral obligation that cctflicts with their ha tred to her, I have not the least idea that the i United Statej will hold together in case of the election of Fremont. It is unfa?hion able to tell these truths in priut. They am truths, however; and I feel it to bo my duty to aid in making them known. Not caring the snap of my flrger for the prcjudicos of any one in the discharge of a publb duty, I am prepared to find those who pandor to abolitionism rolling up tho whites of their eyes at what I am now writing Should Buchanan be defeated, however, thoy will prompt'y appreciate the warning I ntn giving them. They will Cnl Georgia leadiog off. Governor Johnson will instantly convene the Legislature of that State; which will as promptly call a convention to determine hor duty in the crisis. One by one every South ern State will follow her example. Th^ir con clusion will bo to repnrato from the North, peaceably if possible?forcibly if necessary. That determination will bo carried out. I anticipate no war to follow it. The South wishes no war. The North will loso enough by a termination of the Union, without risk ing more through eivil war. Direct taxation and favorable commercial treaties with for eign governments that may make it to the interest of the South to form them will be her certain policy. The exclusive possession of the four great agricultural staples of North American exportation?Cotton, 8agar, Tobac co and Rice?places it within her power to malie any treaty with England the msy de sire. The seeret of Northern prosperity has been the fact that the South hss up to this time sacrificed all her advantage, arising from the exclusive agricultural character of the pursuits of her people (including her ex elusive possession of those staples) in her com mercial intercourse with foreign nations, in compliance with her obligations under the Constitution of tke United States. Without tho South to supply as at present with nearly all laanufactares she requires, from pins up to iron houses, of which tho North has enjoyed a practical monopoly up to this time through our duties on imports, and without the prac tical bounties to tho North at the expense of the South involved in our navigation laws, the condition of things at the North must at once change. Her wealth and power will vanish without them, in an hour as it were Her lease upon them expires with the defeat of James Buchanan, should that take place. I do not anticipate Buchanan's defeat. Yet I am prepared to stand where every men living south of Mason and Dixon' line should b? f und on the Instant tho present General Government must be surrendered into the hands of the Sewards, Hales, Burlingames, Greeley*. Giddingscs, and Wades of the land, if the Union is to continuo W. D. W a. WASHINGTON NEWS AND GOSSIP The Number of Slaveholders in the United States ?The Abolitionists make if one of the laost frequont of their points of attack upon slavery that the actual number of slavehold ers, as given by the census, is only about 350, 000, or one-seventeenth of tho entire white population of the South, and that this "oli garchy," while it does not represent the in terests of the great mass of the people, con trols the action both of the State and Federal Governments. In the first place, the 350,000 slavaholders represent nearly an cquil nam ber of families, all the members of which have an equal degreo of interest in slavery. Now, makitg the ccmus estimate of 5 7 to a family, the result will be 2,000,000, or about one-third of the ti-ta! whito population who havo a direct interost in the institution. Of the remainder a large number are indircetly interested, in somuch. as though, at present, they may be too poor, or other circumstances may prevent them from owning slaves, yet they entertain the h??pe and reasonable expectation of being able, at some future period, to possess them selves of this species of property. There is another class of persons who, possibly without the desiro to own slaves, yet regard slavery it self as a valuable political and social institnt'on, and therefore feel tho same desire for ita preser vation as it they were pecuniarily concerned. There is vet another class, st ill more numerous, who from motives common to human nature, such as we cannot approve, yet at tho same time canuot severely condcmn, as man is con stituted, ettceui their own freedom, in the language of Burke, "ma privilege and an enjoyment," contrasted with tho condition of the servile class below them. The humblest white man feels, and the feeling gives him a certain dignity of character, that where there are glares he is not at the foot of the social ladder, and his own stains is not tho lowest in tlie community. Thii feeling does cot make him regard labor generally as degra ding, but only menial labor, such as a free man could not perform without loss of pelf respect. No Southern man could be induced to black bis employer's boots or attend at his table, while he might not have the slightest objection to work in the field or in the shop even by the side of the negro. It wiil be perceived, then, that although tho actual cumber of slaveholders is only about 350.000, the entire Southern commu nily is, directly or indirectly, pecuniarily or for Eocial, moral or political reasons, interest ed iu tho preservation of slavery. It may be that slaveholders influence and control the policy of the local, and, to a certain extent, of the (ieneral (iovernmeut, but we do not perceive that this is a disparagement to th:m un]er3 it be proved that they acquire or use their power unjustly. On the contrary, it is creditable to them that they have the char acter to acquire and tho talents to wield this influence. If they rule their fellows, it is not by divine right, or because they are privi leged by tho laws so to do, but because they bavo honorably won thoir positions by the gifts of nature, or by superior culture. The road to honors and preferment is closed to ncno to ar\j greater extent in the South than in the North, and humble talents may there, as elsewhere, securo their appropriate reward Slaveholders of the South have not been the lea^t distinguished of the great men who bavo illustrated the annals and conferred glory upon our common country- They may lairly claim to havo contributed their full sharo to the national reputation, whether by deeds of arms or by peaceful achievement ia the legislative hall, the forum, the cabinet, or tho mcro retired walks of literaturo. Nicaragua.?Somo day3 ago we woro in formed by several gentlemen, who had ar rived from Nicaragua direct, that General AValker's prospect* woro growing brighter and brighter, and that there was no doubt what soever of his ultimate triumph over enemies within and foes without tho borders of that Central American military republic. The newspaper accounts, however, as lato as the ISth of August, are not so encouraging to the friends cf the enterprise in which Walker is engnged, an J now it i3 said ?? his fate is soon to be decided by a battle." At Greytown there was no scarcity of rumors, which, wo are informed, 41 must be received with extreme caution and among them arc the following: "Guatemala is said to bo advancing with 4 000 men under Carrera, and Costa Rica has notified her intention of again trying her for tune under tho tamo commander Rivas still holds his position at Loon with 700 men, and is fortifying its outposts. If deserters aro to be believed, Walkor a position at the prososit is veiy critical, to say the least." It is stated, with much parade, that General Walker is from time to time receiving recruils from this country, and now an agent of his, Colonel Young, is in cur neighborhood Alexandria?for the purpose of encouraging emigration to and eccuriDg material aid in behalf of Nioaragua-iu continuation of his mission in other cities. From this it is res ronable to infer that the native population are either unfit for soldiers, or are not enthusias tic in the support of the measures which he has inaugurated ; hence the military powe* necessary to uphold his cause must be drawn from the United States, which, owing to the divisions of the inhabitants, places his move ment in tho light of an attempted conquest men from this country against the|Rivas party of the republio, for the mastery. Colonel Wheeler, the United States Minis ter to Nicaragua, has recognised Walker's new Government, as the newspapers vveeks ago informed us ; and in consequence of this fact, Walker has appointed another envoy to this Government, in the person of Mr. Smith, of New York, who, if rumor tells the truth, is not even a citisen of Nicaragua?he being a substitute for Padre Vijil, who was received ia the capacity of minister in May Uat We are satisfied that our Government will not. at present, receive a minister from Nica ragua, owing to the unsettled political condi tion of that country, if for no other reason.
