The Commissioners of the Canal Fund yesterday opened the bids for the million and a qncrter loan. Tht various bids are given in another cultimo.

Favorable accounts continue to reach us In re. gare to the growing and ripening crops. In Geor Alabama, the Carolinas, Florida, Tennessee, Indiana, and even ia sumv sections of Vi'ginia, the harvesting has already ommanced, and from all those htaws, with the exception of Virginia, we have reports that the yield Is unprecedented. In Vi gitia, the wheat crop was somswaat injared by tan fly aad the army worm, bat as tho nnmbw of arras put under cultivation In that 8t*te this year, for exceeds auy previous s:aaon, there is no doubt bnt the yield will surpass the average.

The ides of July will settle all ques tions in regard to the wheat crop of the oouo'ry, and If tl ia season does not outstrip any prsvioas year in the number of bushels produ ed, there is no tenth in favorebie reports of crops.

The political events of the last six weeks have sharply defined the three great parties of the campaigu, and the ebb nip ion of each lor the succession. These th'ee parties are?the American party, the Seward anti-slavery coalition party, and the democratic party ; and the candidate of each, ss broadly foreshadowed by these late events, Of the American party?George Law, of New York. Of the Seward coalition party?W. H. Sew ard, of New York. Of the democratic party?Henry A Wise, of Virginia. Beginning with Mr. Wise, we find him brought forward as the forlorn hope ftf the democracy in the late Virginia election. It was the last chance. Everywhere else the party, with their old fogy or administration |ead"rs. had been borne down and utterly routed and d'sp^rsed In New York, they hud split aud foundered up on Marcy; in Pennsylvania,th ?y had beeu pros trated in spite of the ancient prcst'ge of Ba chanan; in Michigan, Gen. Cass had been a stumbling block; in Ililuois, Douglas had brought about a democratic defeat; iu Indiana, Bright nDd Pettit had been repudiated; in Missouri, Atchison bod failed; in Califor nia, Gwin had fallen through; in Mai snchusetts, Cashing had been scornfully overlooked; in N*w Hampshire. Mr. Pierce himself bad been publicly condemned and re morselessly trodden under foot; aud even in Old Virginia the integrity of the democracy had been shaken upon the White ll>use preten sions of Mr. Senator Hunter. At such a crisis, and in the face of such dis asters and drawbacks, Mr Wise was nominated as the Virginia democratic candidate for Gov ernor. and the life or death of the party was thus placed in his hands. He accepted the trust?he fought the battle as never apolitical battle was fought before. Had the fate of this Union de pended upon the result?had the question been its preservation or immediate dissolution?he could not have exercised more energy, activity, zeal, courage, talent aud perseverance than be did exercise. He carried the day; it was his victory, against all disasters, ail drawbacks, all defections. He Ignored the administration, and made the issue between the principles of the democracy and the practices of the Know Nothings, and gained the day. The democracy of New York, appreciating this victory upon its real merits, as a victory with which the administration and the old de mocratic fogies had nothing to do, but as a triumph achieved by Mr. Wise in spite of all such obstructions, promptly met in Tammany Hall, and expressed themselves accordingly. The very fact that none of our old fogy democratic leaders were present, such as George Bancroft, Lorenzo B. Sbepard. Au gustus Schell, John McKeon, Charles O'Conor, Francis B. Cutting, James T. Brady, and such, was tantamount to a confession that the victory of Mr. Wise was an affair ia which they had no interest. But the young, progressive and living democracy, headed by Captain Rynders and other bold and fear less spirits, felt that they bad an Inte rest in the result; and it afforded the mediam for the practical reconstruction of the demo cratic party here and throughout the country. Thos cur hard shells and soft shells, for the first time since 1852, were brought enthusiastically t gather j aud from this Tux ma Henry A. Wise was distinctly Indicated as the tifmtcratic champion for I860. We have thought, too, >bat the cour-tge and consistency of Captain Rynnere entitled him to tbc seco/id | lace on the ticket; but however that amy be, the only " live candidate" of thed* m^craey at tb's day- a candidate witb a backbone that is not broken?is Henry A. Wise. IV e next come to VAe champion of the Ku w Nothings "Live 0,k George Law" is evi dently the man ^iththe rapid progress and multiplication ot 'he Know Nothings during the past year, -^uite a number of old fogy aspirants bav<s offered them their services lor the tuccesiion? Millard Fillmore, General Sbiu Honstqfe, Garrett DaviB of Kentucky, Commodore Stockton, Kenneth Rayner and ctlierft B at hero, also, late events have over ruled all the old fogy estimates, and brought a new mun, with a sound backbone, into the front. 'sLive Oak George Law" is that man. Since the first movement of the Pennsylvania ^Legislature down to the adjournment of the late National Council at Philadelphia, he has b. en gathering strength on every side. Two thirds ot the delegates of this late Council were in hiB favor, representing all sections of the Union. Since the adjournment of this Council, the ' numbers of intelligent men of this new Ameri can party, from the North, So?*h Eos', and West, that have thronged the parlors of " Live Oak George" from day to day, rain or shine, at hiB comfortable residence in the Fifth avenue, have been perfectly surprising. Aud they all say that he is the man?that his general intelli gence and administrative talents cannot be ques tioned that he has more of the solid good sense, pluck, independence, and nerve of Old Hickory than almost any ether man they have ever seen tbat he .Is "%e very man for a new ad ministration, and ah id, straightforward, honest and fearless America^ policy; and that he must and shall be the national American nominee in I806. They say that it li due to the conser vatives of New York?due to our substantial Aincricbn interests?due to the Mechanics aud working men of the Union, and u.\ to the peace of the country, that "Live Oak George" should have the American nomination. # These visitors at Mr. Law'B residence;also say that it is a great mistake to suppostf that because he has become rich from his falents and industry, his mind is of the contracted, money grasping calibre of that of the late John Jacob Astor or the late Stephen Girurd. He is, they declare, altogether a different sort of a man?a man of liberal sentiments, enlarged ideas, and conversant, to a most extraordinary extent, with the politicians and politios of the last twenty yearB; that his perceptions of the merits and peculiar qualities of other men are wonderfully quick and accurate; and that just such a man is wanted to fill correotly the thirty thousand offices of the federal govern ment. Concluding, then, that "Live Oak George" is the inevitable nominee of tbe Ame rican party, we pass next to" the great North ern Holy Auti-Slavery Alliance. Here, from the pressure of these recent ?everts, W. H. Seward, as tbe champion of ins party, comes into the same bold relief as Henry A. Wiee and "T.iv* Oak George." His party is a mixed commission of all the odds and ends of tbe ar>ti-slavery agitation, and all the isms and heresies of the North. Last fall, upon the basis of the Nebraska bill, a deliberate attempt was m?de to fuse the people of all parties opposed to that measure In a great Seward or ganization, to be called the republican party. But, from the poweiful diversiou of the new American party in a more con tervative direction, this seditious Seward move ment of last September was a failure. Since bis re-election to the Senate, however, and since tbe Virginia election and the late Philadelphia Council, a new impulse has been given to the Seward programme. That curious Know Some thing anti-slavery gathering at Cleveland, upon the heels of tbe Philadelphia Council, particu larly warns us that Seward is the anti-slavery favorite. They did not nominate him at Cleve land?the time had not yet come for that; but they dearly Indicated their first choice to be oar cunning and active arch-agitator. And wby Dot? He is a man of some learning, of great experience as a political sche.mer, and with the prestige of a certain sort of populari ty among hiB followers, which scarcely any other man of tbe gang could command Sew ard. ilnn, will be tbeir man, and Wil-on of Massachusetts, or Chase of Ohio, or Hale of New Hampshire, will probably be bis second on the ticket Such are tbe tisclosures of ths events of the last, six woks. We are to Have three gnat parties in the field in 1856, aud a friangu'ar fight of the most violent ch.. racier, on all sides, between these three candidates. These candidates, we under take to pay, are also clearly indicated; end all their conventions or ooaucils from this time henceforward to a positive nomina tion for 1856. respectively, by these three par ties. will result in placing definitely before the people these three aforesaid m?-u for the honors and the rpoils of tbe succession Let our read ers, then, of all sections, and of a'I parties, pre pare to make up the r minds for a choice in 1856 between Henry A. Wise as the democratic candidate. George Law ai the Amerioan caudi date, and W. II. Seward as the candidate of the nnti slavery holy alliance. In drawing our horoscope of recent events, snch are the ai?ns o' tbe times. From the facte before us, aud the movements srouDd us, nothing in the future seems to us to stand out in bolder relief. W ho is for Wise? who for Sewaro? and who for "Live Oak George?" The Depression in Newspaper Property. ?We understand that the depression in t^e circulation of our city newspapers, to which we alluded a short time since, still continues, and that without any prospect of relief Lart month one of our Wall street cotempo'arles, the Courier and Enquirer, reduced i's size four inches, which is equivalent to a dollar in the ream, or a saving in its circulation of ten dollars a day, sixty dollars a week, or three thousand dollars a year. It will be recollected ihi.t most of our cotemporaries. such as the Ttmct, the Tribune, and the Journal of Com merce, bad previously curtailed their size from one to two, three, and four incheB. During all this process of curtailment, we are hippy to say that the prosperity, as well as the size of the IIerald, has continued undiminished. Da ring the last twelve months, our business, both as regards circulation and advertisements, has been greater than it ever was at any previous period. This fact shown conclusively that the management oi tho IIerald has secured, a?d will continue to secure, the approval and pi | ,?r?M III III llTlP' A OrgulMim of Uk? *?trPMutki. A number of delegate* from various sor.ieMes organized throughout the State for the purpose of opposing the Prohibitory lav, assembled at Aihany on the 19th inst. to form a State or >arization. The prospect is, that they will organise a powerful aid united body. Toe liquor deoleis may be we k la the Interior, but the interests they control in the large ctttes are qnite irop< rtant enough to give to any party v bich they lead a pr?pooderauce o*er a m-re KCarirn faction. In New York, Albaoy, Troy, licflulo, and the other imoortant cities, th-y will constitute a majority of the voters. A id it is a'mort certain, as there wi 1 be three p*r tias in the field this fall, tba the balance of power wll rest with tbem. At tlie sumo time we notice a meeting called by cundry peri-ots for the purpose of takiag meat-urea to enforce the Prohibitory taw. This, it must be confessed, is at least a very singular proceeding. The people of this State have se veral officers of various autborhy aud designat ion whoee sole or special business it is to see that the laws are executed. Have these officers abdicated? Have tbey declined to perform their functions? Have they a'ked for the posse comitutus 1 Nothing of the kind Oil the contrary, from the Mayor down to the lw>t policeman, everybody pretends to be desirous of doing his duty. The Mayor says ha will ex ecute the law so far as his legal advisers coun sel bim. Not an offioer of the executive has expressed either unwillingness or ina bility to carry out the law. Whence, then, the interference of these people In a ma tier sp> cially delegated by the citizens of this State to officers who are paid fov doing it ? What if they take it into their Heads to see to the ex cution of other laws, to institute prosecutions right and left against xhis or that man, wnona they choose to consider an offender against the laws? We should be in a pretty state of con tusion before they had goue far; and as to the District Attorney and Attorney General, their vocation would be gone. Put if they were half a million instead of half a dozen mischievous busy bodies, the law would none the less be nullified. It is perfectly amaz ir g to think that in the middle of the nineteenth century, people bo intelligent as the Legisla ture of New York should need to be told that a large city like New York cannot be governed by the same rule as a country village. They seem never to have perceived that in the vil lage there is but one grogshop or perhaps two, and halt a dozen topers at most, whom every one knows, and whom it is easy to watch : whereas in a city like New York, it would be easier for the moderate drinkers to keep watch over the teetotallers than the latter over them. An army of detectives would not bring to light all the quiet tippling in this city. All the spies the Carson League could hire?even if twice the forty thousand dollars it asks for were paid into its chest?would not answer the pur pose. And at this moment, when the Liquor law is to go into effect in a fortnight, there is not a householder who entertains the sural test fear of being able to recruit his cellar a* formerly. Excessive drinking la bad, unquestionably: and we must prevent it if we oan: but we eau no more attain that ead by a prohibitory law than we could obeek the growth of infidelity by reviving the InquiHition, or destroy the passions of humaD nature by laying a fin on anger or deceit. Lies are a great source of crime. Save crimes of violence, almost all crimes resolve themselves at bottom into a lie; and it would bean unparalleled blessing if we could get rid of lying. Yet should we gain auything by making a law agaiuBt lying? We have tried the .experiment in one or two timilar cases, and know what fruit it has borne. We have made taws against disorderly houses, aud year by year they increase on our hands We have made laws against lottery offices and gambliug , house?, yet no one is ever at a loss to find a ticket for a lottery, or a table of faro or brag We have laid the heaviest penalties on seduc tion and adultery ?are we auy the more virtu ons in consequence? Let him who doubts real history. There can be little question but the most strait-laced communities have bceu these where sin has flourished the most vigorously; audbyood a doubt it is, accord ing to the unmistakable verdict of experi ence. that though the severities of the law may in some lew couutries operate to restrain certain crimes, there never was a law yet in any conn try opposed to the gen us and wishes of the people which attained its object. Grc gorovius in his book on Corsica, laments eloquently that notwithstanding the severity of the French laws, it has been found impossi ble to check the vendtita; because it was of the nature of Corsicaus to kii each other. Just in the same way, the Lquor law aud others which are intended to put down prac tices which arc in our-natore, will fail, aad the quieter the failure is the better it will be for The Silly Know Nothing Editor at "Wash ington.?The Know Nothing newspaper at Wash ington, conducted by Vespasian Ellis, has for some time past exhibited increasing sy mptoms of progressive folly and imbecility, until at length his unhappy state of mind calls for the speedy action of the proprietors of the journal in ques tion. in order to save it from bankruptcy and the party from public ridicule. It was a vuy unfortunate thing that this man Ellis had the management of this Wash ington organ during the late Virginia canvass. Bis lack of ordinary sagacity, and his abounding crciMBy, contributed largely not only to the defeat of the Know Nothings, but to the most extravagant betting on their part, and the loss of immeuse sums of money from a loolish confidence in the boastings and estimates of this unfortunate prophet. He de ceived himself, he betrayed his friends; and the only excuse for him is that he and they lost tbeir reason and their money together. We cannot mend the matter, but we do say that the frame of mind into which this disastrous Virginia election and the late Philadelphia Council have thrown this unlucky man Ellis, call for his speedy removal from the editorial chair of the American Organ. and the sub stitution in his place of some rational man who has lost neither bis money nor his wits in a reckless political gambling speculation. Since his return to Washington from the late PhiladelphiaCouucil, thisnnhappy man Ellis has betrayed a state of mental aberration strongly suggesting to his friends the expediency of his timely removal to some safe place, liis bead is ail wrong, bis nerves are unhinged, and there is danger that if not soon restrained from the excitements of composition, he may hurt him telf, or jump off fh bridge. 8ametoing terri dons of the Philadelphia Council?something which preys upon his mind, and demands a Tent, f< r never before have we seen the editor of ar.y organ at Washington, good luck or >hw1 husk, full pockets or empty pockets, stamp his ieet, blaspheme, and t? ar hiahai r at such an awf ul rate cs this wretched man Ellis. Ia a late jere iniad, ot? rflowiug with wrath and froth, ho g~ts oil the following among other frightful and desperate expletives :?" Prince of pbti'ioal hucksters;" ??black mail m< rcenary"worther cock;" " incarnate fiend;'' " caae.i and cow hides ;" "malicious slanders;" "splenetic ex crescence of humanity;" (what's that ?) "money king;" "hero of the Dry Dock Bauk;" -Presi dency at public auction;" "purcha-e presses;" "New Yi rk, Albany, Pittsburg, New Orleans manufacture public opinion;" "newspaper scrib blers ;" "political hirelings;" "disgraceful schemes;-' "bags of gold." And yet this unfor tunate lunatic is not provided with r. strait jacket. There is, however, sopac method in this mad* ness. Like Ham'ct, Master Ellis " can tell a hawk from a handsaw when the wind is Nor' Nor'-EaeV" Like some other political backs ? and party organ grimlcrs, this amiable and pleasant fellow at Washington has a crow to pick with "Live Oak George." It appears that the indignation of the Washington Sentinel, the Albany Atlas, and the New York Evening Post, at the bare ioea of naming George Law for the Presidency, may be traced to certain loans of hard cash a.-ked of Mr. Law in behalf of these journals and their respective Presidential schemes, and which loans, for reasons best known to himself, Mr. Law declined to make. We understand that the bland, high-toned, patriotic, aad disinterest-d Vespasian Ellis belongs to this list. Some years ago, on his return from South America, he came upon "Live Oak George" with a splendid scheme for a mighty speculation? being nothing more nor less than the establish ment of a line of steamers to run upon the great river Oronoco. Ellis applied to Law for a good stiff subscription to the stock in this en terprise. With Law's name, and cash to back it, there was " no such word as fail." But being a practical man, "Live Oak George" had no money for the Orouoco. He could make better investments nearer home. To be sure, there was a great demand for sarsaparilla in the United States, and large supplies on the Oronoco; but " Live Oak George" thought it would hardly justify a line of steam ers, and so the project of Ellis fell through. How, then, could Ellis be expected to second the Domination of " Live Oak George " for the Presidency, after refusing this proffered part nership in the sarsaparilla business of the Oronoco ? The fact is that all these " venal politicians" of the Albany Atlas, New York Evening Post, and the Washington Sentinel,' and the Kaow Nothing organ there, are opposed to George Law from the same great fundamental princi ple?"he bad money and they had none." But be bad none to lend them. In contrast with these men, the case of Thurlow Weed ex hibits him as a man of extraordinary magnani mity and honor. For the sake of the American cause, it is to be hoptd that the Know Nothing proprietors of their organ at Washington will transfer Vespa sian Ellis to Kansas, or Bome other frontier place, where his belligerent propensities may have full vent among the balf-breeds and " border ruffians;" and that some new and rational editor may be provided in bis place. Otherwise, from the jnggling game of Ellis with Wilson and Seward, the Kuow Nothing party will be inevitably swamped in the South. Women Doctors.? We have received the eixth annual announcement of the Female Medical College of Pennsylvania for the sec tion of 1855-'6. Most of our readers may be aware that this is an institution for the instruc tion of young ladies in the higher branches of medicine and surgery; that it coolers degrees, and sends forth its lady students into the world with the title of M D., and the right, as Moliere says, of Conptndi, tei'landi, purgandi, Et oocideuc i per totam terrain. We notice that at the last session, thirty five ladies registered their names as students, and that greater facilities still are about to be extended to those who will study this coming year. Thr re can be no question ba. women were intended by their Creator to be nnrses. They BTe better adapted for it than men Tney suf fer ir es when tbey watch; are more patient and gentler; understand a thousand things which the rougher sex do not. It is also clear that women are naturally adapted for the office of midlives; and nothing appears to be wanting that they should exclude the accoucheur alto gether but a sufficient knowledge of the busi ness. It is likewise obvious that all women require to be acquainted with the diseases of children. In so far, therefore, as this Pennsyl vania college or any other institntiou of the like nature proposes to teach women to be nnrses, mothers and midwives, it deserves to be commetded. But the idea of teaching women the general practice of surgery and medicine, of placing them in a position where tbey most acquaint themselves with all the diseases of loathsome humanity, and may be called upon to tend them, is equally destructive of their modesty, and in jurious to the science of medicine. Newspaper Conventions.?We notice that the editors and proprietors of newspapers in several adjacent States are holding conven tions. There are some two hundred newspapers published in New York. Why do they not hold a convention ? Marine Affairs.

As to tbe reported number of vessels destroy ed in the (fee of Aioff,be remarks that it far surpasses alj that the Russians ever bed there.
