The translations which we give from the edito rials of the Mexican papers to-day are suggestive to the highest degree. The Trait d1 Union, iu one ot those articles, discusses the subject of Know Mwtbtogism, and exhibits it nnder the light of an Ignorant and suicidal movement, antagonizes! to llw institutions, the character, and the past of the United States. The Universal devotes a seiies of awttotos to the discussion of the Cnba question; | mils apon the Spanish American people to inter vene first in all diplomatic attempts either to change tha present condition of the island by a transfer of Ms sovereignty, or to establish emancipation, which woold be equally dangerous; and af etwards, if foroa to retorted toon the part cf the United Statss, to sally under the standa-d of the race, which would be anre to be unfurled by Mexico. Both these arti cles are deserving of attention. Our oonespotdent at Rio Janeiro, writing on April 28, furnishes an abstract of all the laws in faece in the Brazilian empire, by which the rights of citizens are guaranteed, and their duties towards Me executive sud society defined. lie also gives bis version ot the aff-tir of the Ameruen schooner Bay City, said to have been unnecessarily fired on by a British cruiser, as before reported, with an aaecnnt of the fc eatment of the mate and ths notion af eur Consul at Rto in the matter.

Some rg tbe c^mos and fomenting ?on u-. ion id d wbich our political parties were thrown j ear ag0 hy this most wretched Pieree admink; trail on still prevail throughout the cooo* jy f while here andtcere the general revo 1?'' unary reaction is assuming someiaing of *h ape and consistency. In this State it is 'pretty evident that we are to have three dis tinct, well aefmedk and antagonistic parties in the field for the ^accession, to wit:? 1. The Know Nothings, or new American party. 2. The Seward anti slavery disunion party. >3. The spofe democracy. , Info these three parties the bulk of all the outside factions of the day will probably be merged?the liquor law faction, the anti-liquor law faction, the demoeratio bard shells and ooft shells, the Seward and toe silver gray whigs, the ultra liberty faction of Gerrit Smith and Fred Douglass, the land reformers, the anti-renters, the women's rights women, and the Fourierite philosophers and free colored Americans, inclusive. In this view, let us see, from present indications, the relative strength of these three new parties in the Empire State, from and after our next November elestion. At our State election of last November, the vote for Governor resulted as follows:? For Clark, Seward liquor law whig 166,803 For S'ey nour, aoft abell auti liquor law demo crat 166,406 For Uilman, Know Nothing 133,f82 For Brooaon, bard aboil democrat 34,002 For B. B. Wood, independent free aoilar 8,631 Total popular vote of the State 678,102 This exceeds by fifty thousand the aggregate vote lor President in 1852, and upon the Bame ratio of increase we shali probably have by November next a total popular vote of six hundred thousand. The vote for Governor, as distributed last year, affords scarcely an ap proximation to the relative strength of the parties involved, omitting the liquor question. Upon that issue there waB an inexplicable amount of cross-firing. The result, however, establishes the important fact that with all the force of the Nebraska agitation, in its first gloss, with all the unpopularity of Pierce, Mercy, Cushing and Forney, with all the de fections of the democracy, all the novelty of the liquor law, and all the inexperience of the Know Nothings, whoBe organization &b a State party had then scarcely commenced, the Sew ard anti-Nebraska-temperance and anti-slavery coalition were unable to muster one-third of the aggregate vote of the State. How stands the matter now f The democra cy are still disorganized?the Seward coali tion have nothing to stand upon but the slavery agitation and *hc lnjuui law. The approach* ing election involves neither Governor nor Congressmen. It io limited to Beveral State officers, the Legislature and town and city officials. Nor will the Assembly be rendered a political test upon the election of a Senator. That question has been settled. But upon the maintenance, or modification, or repeal of this odious and despotic liquor law, the election of the new Legislature will inevitably turn, and the re sult will most probably give to the victorious party the inside track for the great campaign of 1856. This liquor issue cannot be smothered up in the repeal of the Nebraska bill. Too many substantial business int?Mta, too many positive individual political i^ts are in volved in this law to admit of the idea that the question of its repeal can be suffocated in the impracticable abstraction of the restoration of the Missouri line. The liquor interest, in all its ramifications, will exert a tremendous influence in our No vember State canvass. Where will it go ? Not with the Seward disunion coalition establish ing this despotic law?not, most assuredly, with the disorganized and unreliable democracy; but with that party most likely to possess the strength and the will to defeat the law? this new American party. Since November last, it has Increased it* to full two hundred thousand men, atfd the work is still progressing. Can Seward muster the fifty thousand reinforcements, according to his vote of last fall, necessary to bring up his force to two hundred thousand? Extremely doubt ful. Can the spoils democracy hit upon any plan of democratic fusion i-ufficient to control in thiB State two hundred thousand votes, during the remnant of the allotted exist ence of this Pierce administration? Exceeding ly doubtful. Can any plan of fusion be invent ed between the spoils democracy and the Se ward coalition, upon auy pretence or for any purpose whatever? No. We must then con elude that the contest next fall will be between the Seward party and the American party ; and from the instincts, interests, antecedents and fixed principles of the democracy in favor of free trade and free liquor, we must also con clude that the pressure of the liquor question will bring over a prodigious democratic balance of power to the Know Nothings. Jlere, however, the question arises, what ground do the Know Nothings oecupy od this liquor law ? It was-doubtful last fall; it seems now to be a sort of neutral ground. But when a definite stand upon this issue is all that is wanted to defeat the Seward holy alliance, not only in this State, bat In other States, we are quite flute that the Know Nothings will ap propriate the means and the opportunity to do the work. the American party is et them carry New York, plvania next fall, and the i elections, and they may w England and Ohio se npunity in referonce to the all important, however, November. Tney can, Know Nothings, there prk of singling out their |t Assembly with refc )l question of the can also, to some legisla regarding the man them carry the As eb-agitator, and the io. New York is theirs, frank for the great cam and the Southr stand geme 1$ secured and the What say out Know No can if they will. j Ita*1ah Opera?Close op the First Sea rch o? the Aoadeht?Itb Rbsolis. The first | regular season of the Academy of Music terminated as no other Opera Beasou erer before terminated in this city?w'.'nh the pres tige of complete success, and a feeling of gene ral satisfaction on the part of th? public, the n>anag> ment and the artir'ts. No party has to complain of promises uii^r formed.engagements uuinldlled, or heavy losses incurred on one side or the other. For once in operatio affairs tfcere are no clouds to darken the feelings of gratification with which we can afford to look back on the events of the past season, er the brilliant prospects which open for the next. Both are conclusive as to the permanent and prosperous establishment of the Italian lyrical drama as one of our local institutions. Various causes have contributed to bring about this happy result. One is undoubtedly he position and respectability of the two prin cipal directors?Messrs. Phalen and Goit?and the basin eso talent they have bronght to beav on the affairs of the establishment. Another is in their choice of an associate having consi derable experience in theatrical matters, con joined with well known address and tact?the Chevalier Wikoff. But the third, and not the least important, Is the faot of the two first nam ed gentlemen being private individnals, with out any previous connection either with artists or journaliBtB. From the independence of their position as regards both, they have been able at once to Bee ore the sup port of the most sensible and influential portion of the press, and to exercise an effective control over the artists with whom they have had to deal, by treating them fairly and kindly, and thus soothing the feelings and conciliating the good will of a proverbially irritable class. We have watched with extreme interest the (successive efforts that have been made within the last twenty years to establish Italian Opera in this city, and we probably know as much of the history and causes of failure of these attempts as any one. The first great ex periment of this sort was made by Palmo, him self an Italian, and a great amateur of the Opera. He had been successful in accumulating a fortune of from $100,000 to $150,000 in a caf? in Broadway, and his love of muBic induc ed him to hazard the hard earned fruits of his industry in a speculation which, however con genial it might have been to his tastes, was en tirely out of his line. He opened in Chambers street the first regular Italian Opera house established here; but after a few sea sons of heavy losses, which swallowed up the entire of his fortune, it broke down. One of the principal canseB of Palmo's failure was his incompetency to reconcile and control the jealousies and difficulties arising from the sensitiveness and irritability of hiB artists; bat a more serious one still, was the readiness with which he allowed himself to be influenced by the ignorant suggestions and evil counsels of a na?UoUqa? coxu&ootod with the press, who have I raibeequently ?wdm1 tor UunnuWeR the denomi nation of oyster hooBe critics. The next attempt at Italian Opera was made in the Astor place house, under the manage ment of Sanquirico and Patti. These persons were artists themselves, and consequently the oyster house critics had full sway over their affairs. The result was that before two seasons the enterprise went by the board from bad management The third effort was made by Mr. Edward P. Fry. He began his career by giving his confi dence to a particular section of the oyster house critics, and proscribing the sensible and independent portion of the press by refusing them the usual privileges. Under such in fluences there occurred what will always occur when vanity and ignorance reign supreme. Quarrels between the manager and his troupe, and quarrels between the press and the manager marked the whole of this unfortunate enterprise, and of necessity soon bi ought It to a disastrous close. After Fry came Maretzek, who, undismayed by the fate of his predecessor, assumed all the painB and responsibilities of the Astor House management. Mr. Maretzek being an artist himself, of course had the same difficulties to contend with that all artists have to encounter when they become managers. They usually carry into the business administration of a tne atre too much professional prejudice and bigot ry, and too little tact and knowledge of the world, to conduot matters to a successful re sult. Between the dictation of the oyster house critics, and the rivalries of artists, Maret zek got along for some years with varying fortunes, but on the whole unfortunately, and it was evident that from his efforts there was little to be hoped for as regards the permanent establishment of the Italian Opera amongst us. On the completion the Academy of Music, Ole Bull, conjointly with Ullmann and Stra koech?two of them artists, and without any of the experience requisite in the management of great business enterprises?assumed the direc tion of that house. As usual, the rivalries of the singers, to say nothing of the quarrels of the piincipals themselves, and the old blighting influence of the oyster house critics, soon brought ruin upon the speculation; and a com mittee of the stockholders?private gentlemen, having hut very little previous experience in such matters, but still competent from their general business acquirements?were compelled to assume the management of the ooncern. Here was an entirely new regime, differing in their habits, notions and positions from th j persons who are generally placed at the head of theatrical affairs, independent of all low and paltry influences, whether arising from tbe miserable jealousies of artists or the ridiculous intrigues of the oyster bouse critics, and ani mated by but one laudable motive?a desire to elevate tbe public taste in musical matters, and advance the interests of art. By pursuing this juat, impartial and well considered oourse towards tbe press as well as towards their srtie's, composers, et hoe gentu ormne urrita bile, they have sucoeeded in demonstrating what had previously been considered doubt ful?that Italian Opera may be rendered suc cessful as a commercial speculation, when it unites tbe oonditions of talent, gentlemanly feeling and judicious management. The BnsF.cn of Major Do.vei.sov.?The great feature of the meotiug of the Know Nothings in the Park, the other day, was the speech of Major Andrew Jackson Donclson, of Tennessee, against onr imbecile and faithless Pierce ad ministration. It is a bombshell from the Her mitage thrown into the ranks of the spoils de mocracy. They must now either definitely abandon Mr. Pieree or sink with him. This speech tells the whole story. It defines the trw national policy of the Know Nothings, * . 40 a war of ex terra nation against this r-?t?a Pierce dynaefry and all concerned. Major Dooelson pate the question in its legiti mate shape to the conn try, whether we shall have a new government, administered by men of Union principles, or the coatinnanoe of a eorrnpt and trading coalition of Northern and Southern nniliflers, Van Bnren free Rollers of the Buffalo stamp, and Jeff. Davis secessionists and filibusters. Let the Know Notuiugs circu late this speech of the adopted eon and inti mate political confidant of Old Hickory. We want to know what the democracy propose to do with Mr. Pierce, and wnere they will tarn up Our Relations with thb Dominican Repub lic?Anothkk Specimen op our Pierce and Marcy Diplomacy?We published yesterday a letter from Washington, from a reliable and well informed source, explanatory of the American diplomacy of Pieroe and Marcy with the interesting repnblie of Dominica, the white end of the island of Hay ti. The facts are very simple, and much of a piece with the doings of this treacherous and sknlking administration in reference to Spain, Cuba, the Sandwich Islands and Central America. Oar Minister at Dominica made a favorable treaty with that government?the French and English with their ships of war, thereupon came op, and bul lied and threatened the poor Dominicans at such a rate that they were compelled to eat their own words, and oanoel the treaty with onr ambassador. And there the matter stands. Ordinary men would say that here was an outrage committed by the French and English calling for instant redress?for reparation, even at the cannon's month, and at the risk of a general war. Bat where was that bold Ameri can spirit of Pierce, Marcy and Forney, nader which they carried the terror of our bombshells and torches into Grey town? Oozed oat, like the courage of Bob Acres, at their fingers' ends. It was the difference between an armed fleet of the Britfch and French, and a defence lees village of merchants and their inoffensive people. French and English terrorism has driven onr Minister from Dominica, and has substantially appropriated that hitherto inde pendent power. Such is the Pierce interpreta tion oi the Monroe dootrine in the face of dan ger. Such is the rendering of the inaugural, when England or France stands in the way. Pierce and Marcy bopk out, and so very stealthily that nothing would be known of it but for the correspondents of the public press. Will the Washington Union be good enongh, since the secret is out, to inform as whether the administration has or has not finally con sented to submit to the armed occupation of Dominica by England and France ? Are we to swallow this outrage as an offset to the Grey town bombardment, or is our Forney Cabinet waiting for those new frigates to be built T The Administration and the Late Cuban

Movement.?The more light that is thrown upon the lute movement In Unbt, the more un accountable appears the conduct of the Pierce administration, and the stronger the grounds for indignation among the Creoles. It appears that the discovery was made in this way: A government agent, in the confidence of the State Department, placed himself in close com munication with the Junta and their friends here. This was the easier to do as at first pub licly and privately Mr. Pierce had professed deep sympathy for the cause of Cuban inde pendence, and had assured the leaders of as much, with many oaths and many promises, at several private interviews. Having wormed himself into the confidence of the Cuban sym pathizers here, the government agent had the address to persuade them that it was absolutely necessary that some one should go from hence to Cuba to ascertain by ocular inspection what might be expected from an insurrectionary movement. The principle adopted, the spy offered to go himself provided the Junta here would accredit him to the principal Creoles of their party on the island; and assuredly no political party ever allowed itself to be more completely hoodwinked?his offer was accept ed, and he left On the island he met Manuel Pinto, Estrampes, and the other revolutionary chiefs; as they supposed, concerted measures with them; as was the case in reality, sounded them as to their prospects, means and objects, and departed brimful oi information. Instantly on his return, he repaired to the State Department to draw his pay and commu nicate what he knew. Mr. Pierce and Mr. Marcy were placed in possession of the whole facts of the Cuban conspiracy. They had no sooner learned all than in their turn they trans ferred their information to the Spanish Minis ter, who sent it to the Captain General. Hence it appears that the shocking deaths of Manuel Pinto, Estrampes and the other victims of the late coup d'ftat in Cuba are wholly the work of the present administration. It is difficult to conceive either a baser pros titution of the authority with which the Ame rican people have entrusted Mr. Pierce, or a grosser insult to their feelings. It may tie lawful for the despotic authorities of Cuba to secure the submission of the unfortunates set under them by steeping their hands in blood, whenever their enormities are objected to ; but in God's name, the time has not come when the government of the United States can play the executioner or the spy. Wallace's Tueatrs?Gsriiin Opkra The Gtrmii Opera troupe commenced their new series of perform anoss at this theatre last night with the " Dough tar of the Regiment."

Madame D'Ormy sustained with great spirit the rdle of Marie, and was loudly applauded in her flrst aria and in the finale of the flrst act. The terzetto in the mcond act, with M.

The Prohlbtaory Uqnor Law. Saratoga Springs, June 16,1866. Jambs Gordon Bbnnbt, Esq.:? In the Hkrald of this day I am eet down In one of the columns of the comparative list of those who have given opinions since the passage of the Prohibitory Liquor law, "in favor ef. or against its eooatitutionaUty,'' as "for the law." This is aa error. Met hearing been so fortunate as to reoetre a retaining fee, small or large, from the Carson Leagn# or the Liquor Dealers' Assec.a tion, of course I have not given any gratuitous opinion for or against the law. Permit me to add, that I am, and ever have been, opposed to the Prohibitory Liquor law, and will do all in my power to have it repealed. JOHN B. HA4K1N. CouitCalMutar-Thli Bay.
