Seward's Rc-Klcctloii? The Know Nothings? A Sectional Scrub Race for tbe Fmldenoy. The re-election of W. II. Seward to the United States Senate establishes the great fact that the antl- slavery sentiment ia paramount and predominant in the North. The issue between him and the Know Nothings was distinct and decisive. He had thrown down the gauntlet as their sworn enemy in the Senate, and they had taken it up. It surmounted their flag-staff in our November elections, and, bearing it aloft, the Know Nothings entered the Assembly to super sede him or prevent his election. The more sanguine of their members were confident of success ? the order commanded tbe balance of power, and yet, on the appointed day of the tournament, they surrendered the glove with out even breaking a lance. In the Senate five Know Nothings voted for Seward and his majority was five ? a clear Know Nothing majority. In the Assembly his majority waB twelve; but had the seven Know Nothings voting for him opposed him, there woukl have been a majority against him of two. Thus the vote of each house and the election of Seward were decided by Know Kothing votes. The result may be charged partly to the despotic discipline of the Kuow Nothings and the consequent mutiny of some members; partly to the spoils and the superior tactics of the Seward pipe layers; but, more than to all other causes combined, to the predominant anti-slavery sentiment in the Assembly in the State and throughout the Northern States. Our Pierce administration is responsible for this. It is but one item of the fruita of the general anti-slavery reaction brought about by | the Nebraska bill? a constitutional measure, unquestionably, but sprung upon the country without instructions, without warning, and for no other than the selfish purposes ot thia same sinking and desperate Fierce administration. Elected by the spontaneous uprising of the Union Bentimcnt of the country, Mr. Pierce went to the White llouse under that delusion oi a peddling politician, that he was elected by the suffrages of the Van Buren free soilera and Jeff. Davis secessionists of the Baltimore Con vention. His sympathies in '-1C were openly with the Wilmot proviso party ; his predllec | lions in '48 were in favor of Van Boron and Lis New York partizans, (auk John Cochrane for the Scarlet Letter ;) and his division of the plun der in the appointment of his Cabinet, hia diplo mats, Ac., attested his antecedents in the lion's share of the spoils accorded to the free soilers of the Buffalo rebellion, and the filibustering Southern disunionista. The Union sentiment of the country was roused against this outrage? the national conservative democracy were in dignant?the party in the North was broken up, and in the South it was paralyzed by Mr Fierce'* unblushing free coil spoils affiliations' and by the disclosure, through the independent press, of his pre-existing anti-slavery principles and pnr'y associations. The case was desperate. The burden of proof was against the Northern favorite of Vir ginia and fhe South, chosen at a venture. They had selected a free soiler. Ilis largesses of the spoils to the Van Buren Buffalo leaders had established the fact. He must do tome- 1 thing to wipe out the stigma. Senator Dixon, | a whig, of Kentucky, suggested the repjal of the Missouri compromise. Nobody had thought ' of it before; and at first the Cabinet or^an i scouted the proportion as utterly out of the | question. But Judge Douglas, a lover of start ling effects and of active excitements, turned the matter over, consulted Southern secession i ists upon the subject, and they resolved that I Dixon had hit the mark. Mr. Douglas reported | progress to the President. A caucus was called at the White House ? a Sunday causus ? the repeal was carried, and Mr. Pierce was con strained to endorse it in writing. It would rave him ? nationalize him, and put his admin istration right side up before the country. The Nebraska bill was passed. The anti slavery agitation in the North was instant- j ly revived? nothing like it before? and the late round ot Northern elections gives us i the consequences thus far. The administra- I tion party from New Hampshire to Missouri is literally destroyed. The national whig party was broken np and disbanded with tho election of Pieroe. Chaos had come again. ' when the mysterious Know Nothings rose to the surface against the huckstering corruptions of the old parties and this rotten administra^ tion, and in favor of a conservative staad upon the slavery question. On this whole some platform we had supposed that th? Know Kothings had swept the State of Massa chusetts. and that they possibly might signal ize their national consistency in the defeat of Seward's re-election. But they have elected an ultra free soilcr from Massachusetts as their first Senator in Congress, and their second Senatorial achievement is the re-elec tion of Seward himself. The conclusion i? manifest. The Know No things in the North are powerless against the anti slavery sentiment evoked by the desperate administration self-saving expedient of the Nebraska bill. They must pull with the cur- i rent or be driven a?hore, clear as daylight. Thus, in the election of Wilson and the re-elec tion of Seward, we have the key to the ! next Presidential campaign. It will be a 1 sectional canvass, a medley, a confased guerilla fght, a scrub race. No demo cratic Baltimore Convent/en c*o patch up j a platform that will stand tn both aides of Mat-on and Dixout line. ft "will be top-heavy, sad must fall <rm on one aide or the other No wLip national eouvention will, wc dare say, Ix: htt? ropteft. We shall probably have a North ern eualitM* anti-slavery ticket; a Northern ui Djucrttic con-en ative ticket, as far as coa vtrient; a Southern democratic ticket; a South ern opposition ticket, and independent electoral Ki.ow Nothing tickets in all the States, leavi >g ilie i9*ue of their candidate for President, as fa-* ws -J.cj are concerned, North and Soath, to be ?dewrmined in a national council. Among these ?ocntiieting sectional parties and factions, the election <rf the next President will probnoly be thrown upon the House of Representatives; and there Use constitution has provided a rewcu-. The 'constitution ordains that, in the event of the failure to elect a President by the people, the three highest candi latcs shall go up to the Howe of Representatives, and that one of them shall there be chosen. Bat in the mode of thi> election lies the self protecting reservation to the South. Eich State Khali only cast one vote; ana thus Florida, with her one representative in the House, will be equal to New York with <her thirty -three. There are now thirty-one States ? sixteen free States, and fifteen slave States, including Delaware. The North have a ma jority of one vote; but in the conflict between rival Northern candidates, the vote of Califor nia will be sufficient to turn the scale in favor of any conservative candidate upon whjm the South may be united. From the present complexion of things, then, it will be the policy of the Soath, in the next Presidental canvass, to secure one of the throe highest candidates from the people, as a candi date before the House. Otherwise they may have to choose between thr<se men, each man of them more or less pledged against the ex tension of slavery, in any shape or form. The anti-slavery sentiment, as illustrated in the election of Wilson, and the return of Se ward to the Senate, with the support of the Know Nothings, is paramount and predominant in the North, and cannot be resisted. It will give a sectional character to the Presidential campaign, while the diversion of the Kiow Nothings, and the independent fragment's of the old political parties, will reduce the contest to a scrub race of the highest excitement and im portance, not ui' mixed with the elements of sc' cession and disunion. In this view, we repeat, it is the policy of the Sooth to abandon all Baltimore Conventions* and make Bure of their candidate for the House of Representatives. There the Know Nothings may come to the rescue. Who knows? Who can tell now whether this mysterious but powerful party will exist intact so long? It may in the interval be broken up and dispersed. There are tome symptoms of this in this State and in Mas sachusetts. Their oaths of submission are too rigid, their discipline too despotic, long to hold independent free born men together. They must reform this feature of their sacred mys teries. Where a pledge of honor cannot be re lied upon in politics, vain are the restraints of inquisitorial espionage, spells and tortures. These things will not answer. The rebel lion at Albany proves it. Let the Know Nothings act accordingly, or abandon at ono? all their estimates of the Presidency. In any event, North and South, let all par ties prepare for the most exciting and momen tous sectional scrub race for the succession. 1 Let all the outstanding candidates pat is? can't have too many. But let the South make sure of one for the House. It is the last ohafioe against Seward and his Northern coalition. Ma tor Wood and His Detractors. ? We copy from the New Orleans Delta a flattering^ but not overdrawn, tribute of praise to the commendable efforts made by our new Mayor to render his term of officc one of utility and benefit to his fellow-citizens, and not, as in the case of his predecessors, a mere honorary and profitless distinction. Our contemporary 1> right in saying that the men who are the objects ot the most abuse and scurrility are frequently those whose qualities are of a su perior order, aud certainly, thus far, since his election to office, Mr. Wood has, by his untiring enerjiy and uprightness of purpose, confirmed the justice of the observation. No system of administration, however perfect, can be ef fectively carried out unless men of the requisite capacity are placed at its head. Under the political influences which govern our municipal elections, it unfortunately but too often hap pens that candidates arc chosen let* for their i personal abilities than for a pliant and time- ' serving disposition, which may l?c turned to profitable account by office- seekers and spoils men. The result is, that with an expenditure ? which might render our city one of the beat regulated and comfortable in the world, we have more abuses and corporate neglect to complaiu of than any other community that we know of. Whatever, therefore, may be the ex ceptions taken to Mayor Wood's antecedent* j by his enemies, we are content to ignore them, in the acknowledgment that, as a public servant, we have never had a man who has, in bis office, 1 displayed more capacity, more untiring activi ty, and more zealous devotion to his duties than he has done since his brief term of offloe. It only requires a steady and unflinching per severance in his present course to effectually ocutralize th; efforts of his assailant*. European Emigration.? In {another column ? will be found a decree which has been just is sued by the French Emperor, regulating the whole system of emigration both from and to Trench ports, which is remarkable for the wis dom and humanity of its provisions. Every possible precaution Is taken in it to anticipate and guard against the abuse* which have hitherto caused so much suffering and lose of life amongst tbe unfortunates who are compelled to desert their homes in search of a subsistence in other lands. Not only is every facility afforded to German and other ftreign emi grants passing through rrance to transatlantic ports, by the exemption af their baggage from examination at the frontier, but certain modi fications are made in their favor in the pus port system, which will relieve them from a great d? al of annoyance and difficulty. Emi grant vessels arc placed by it under such severe regulations, as regards rpace. cleanliness, ven- ! filiation, quality and sufficiency of provisions, and the number of passengers allowed to be taken on board, that it seems iapoe.-iblc that any violation of the law in these respect* can escape punishment. This decrc. may be taken as a model of salutary and clearly defined pre ventive legislation on a subject respecting which sufficient vlgilanoe has never yet been exercised.

Mr. June*, of TenneKsea, anil tbe majority of the Iloane, ?>avr written themselves down asses to day, by their ac tion on tbe Texas debt bill. The House bill passed grants precisely the amount eono?J?d to belong to Texan and the creditor* under the law of 18j>0 ; but the House say, in addition to the condition* imposed by that law, that Teias shall also release the United States from throe mil lions and a half, claimed by her for Indian depredations. The absurdity of the action to day is manifest. The Senate will not agree to the House bill, but, adhering to their own bill, will domsnd a committee of conference. Upon iti composition will depend tbe ultimate fate of the measure. It is not doubted in any well informed quarter thatt)w> Pretident will veto the French Spoliation bill. Mr. Marcy's letter in this morning's Union is regarded as a death blow to the Kinney expedition. Mr. Buchanan's Mends are trying to kick Nicholson out of the Uni"n. Seward's, Wilkinson's, and Durkee's election to tbe Senate has paralyxed Know Nothingism in Maryland and Virginia. Unless the Northern Know Nothings make some authorized statement proving they have not been instrumental m electing these abolitionists, the order is already used up In the South, tireat excitement pre vails kbere on tbe subject, and teveral delegates have arrived to confer upon the proper steps to be adoped. Mr. Houston's failure to get up his tantr bill to-day proves there is no great inclination to tinker with the subj<ct this session. Independent of this, there is some fcelinp against certain Boston .partial interested in tbe pasi-sge of a tariff bill, which helps to block up further legislation in their behalf.
