Lincoln or Hell A more disingenuous, fallacious, and we will nr. nUsurd iliterpri-tation than this was never uttered It is cl^ar to every honest mind after reading the President's remark*, that vrhat he meint was. that, according to the old stages of the deni jcratic party, neither Mr Dougla* nor Mr Breckinridge nad been regularly nominated. that democrats who might vote for* cither candidate would not violate that rule of pa'ty discipline which enjoin* obedience to regular nominations: and that such being the case, it was their duty to vote for the candidates who hold.

HMWHHHHIi How the LaxdI.ati.? By this time there must be frw indeed who watch the signs political, who fail to comprehend that the contest for the Presidency has narrowed down to a choice l?etween Breckinridge and Lincoln, if an election is to be made cither by the people or the Ho'ise of Representatives? Lincoln receiving, as he doubtless will, the mass of the electoral votes of the nonslaveholdlng States; and. Breckinridge, in all probability, all the electoral votes of all the slaveholding States So those who vote for electors favorable to any other candidates will simply tkrow their votes away. The ett'ort to generate a Douglas party at the South has everywhere fallen still born to the ground notwithstanding the ' blowing" of the Douglas newspapers over It.

From all the signs it is fair to estimate that a Douglas electoral ticket In the Old Dominion will not poll more than an average of ten votes to a county .Not that there are not more than that number of persons in the State who under ordinary circumstances would prefer Don las to Brecki nridge But not more than that number of Virginia Democrats will prove bent on doing their best to give the State's vote to Bell and Kverett. and thus help to tbrow the State's atlairs into the bands of the opposition. 'J'he belief is now Increasing everywhere that Douglas, in persisting in running, without being able to calculate with any reasonable deg re? of certainty upon receiving a single electoral vote, 1* simply aiming to strengthen his pretensions to the Republican party nomination in ISM upon the plea that in continuing in the present ( ontestue is materially aiding the iirosneet C?

The only new matter is some correspondence lietwren Harden and his family, after his conviction. The confession contains none of those disgusting revelations which were anticipated, and is a mere record of Harden's external life Concerning his connection with Miss Dorland?his wife afterwards?the impression sought to be <re?U*d is that the engagement and marriage were thrust on him by his mother-in-law The po soiling of his wife is openly conf?*sed, but ocrupies only a little over a page, and merely confirms what has before i>een Dubinhed IU administered :ir*enir to he^ on an apple. saying it was a powder to prevent pregnancy.

An extra of the Progress repeats the rumors mentioned by our correspondent, that Zuloa?a had escaped to Degallado's camp, and pronounced in favor of the constitutional course; also, that Charles Mlramon, brother of the President, commanding the fifth battalion of the reactionary army, had gone over to the same side. The same paper alto recods a rumor that Mlramon has escaped from the Sayula marshes, though with the loss of all his artillery, and a great part of bis men. But this, like the other rumors, would seem to lack confirmation.
