We see that Chief Justice Shipley, of Maine, has decided that police justices and other magistrates cannot have jurisdiction ondcr the Maine law, and that every case m<j*t be tried before a jury. Now. it is pretty nearly impossible to ?et a jury, even in M iltie, to con vict under this law. lo New York it would b? otterly impossible to draw twelve m n. all of whom are satisfied th it the lnw is right and c ?* gtitntlonal. The decision of the Chi?f Justice of Maiae is considered in State as a vir tual nullification of the law. iu Hetr it. Micbi gan, we ieara that the law i* an entire mil mi* .>a arfvWvK jhe Soule Horcy Imhroglln- T?nVce CuiiiiI?H (tfO MocU for Ftfeiittt AMpJomacy. lion Pierre Soul 6 baa just paid fc'iljiog visit to New Yoik for tue par^o of makiug ar rangements with some odc of oa? bi>okm iking boutts for the publication of hiB work oa American diplomacy. especially the diplomacy of our promt adiuiuitilration, as illustrated in his ta4>: extraordinary Spmit>b mission, aud its exciting and -wonderful results. This bwik, we uuder&tumi, will be a large octavo of '.'our or live hundred pages, und will be issued to the public in September, so as to take the wind out of the fails of Marcy and hia confederates in our Northern autumnal elections. The gravamen of this Spanish imbreglio lies in a nutshell. The appointment of Marcy as j Secretary of State solves the whole mys'-ery, and was tho beginning of that chain of bai measures, bad appointments, bad diplomacy, and bad luck, which has foundered the adminis tration and shivered the democratic pirty Co pieces. The original organisation of Mr. Pierce's official family rested upon Mr. Hun ter of Virginia, as Secretary of State; and up<in this political basis-half ''Young Ameri ca" and half Southern seceesionism? m*ny sub ordinate appointments, including that of Mr. Souk, a chip of tt?e same block, were made. But Hunter, upon reflection, looking bick to the unfortunate case of Eenry Clay, and looking iorward to a higher promotion than the post ot Premier, positively declined the State Department, and the result w?s the Una lodgment ?of Mr. Pierce upon Karcy aa his m*n. Marcv being an " old fogy," and the most ob jectionable of the whole tribe to Youag Ami nes and Southern ultraism. the immediate con sequence was a declaratioa of war against him by all of that peculiar progressive demo cratic ccbool of which Hunter, Souk, Daniel, Sanders, and such, were the admitted leader*. On his side, Marcy was equally belligerent, as his efforts to defeat the appointment of Souk to Spain, of Daniel to Sardinia, and of Sanders to London, abundantly attest. These appoint ments were made, however, in spite of M*rcy, because Mr. Pierce had gone too far to recede. Sonli, ut least, had received his reward for his services in the Baltimore Convention before the appointment of Marcy himself, and it would have been dangerous, therefore, to touch Souk. Indeed, to conciliate the Southern secessionists to Marcy. it was found necessary not only to retain Soule, but to give them a voice in the Cabinet; and hence the selection of Jefferson Davis as Secretary of War. Soul6 having thus triumphed over Marcy, anft b?ving secured the consent and approval of Mr. Tierce to a boV\ ftUWtwing policy at Madrid, thought himself perfectly secure. This was his fatal mistake. Acting upon the presumption that the administration was J unit, and that Mr. Pierce controlled it. Mr. Souk wrote out at length his Spanish programme, as approved by Mr. Pierce, and laid it before the Secretary of Sta'e. Mircy took it, read it, said nothing, but laid it by lor future use. Souk had shown his hanl; but the Premier reserved his best cards for the end of the game. The subsequent published corres pondence between him and Soule, including the fatal coup d'itatot the Ostend Conference, te* the rest of the story. French diplomacy ww defeated by Yankee cunning. Souk had de pended too much upon the slippery promises and the nominal authority of Mr. Pierce, and had too lightly regarded the hatred, the treach ery, and the deep cunning and power of Marcy. The forthcoming l>ook we presume will fully eubstantiate this view of the case. Wc under Hand that it will embrace Mr. Souk's original chart of his mission as laid before Marcy. and a good lot of diplomatic correspondence which Marcy thought proper to suppress, in the batch which, upon their call, he transmitted to Cm gress. and which has been published. We learn, however, that none of the Becreta of this mission will be given calculated to prejudice our pending negotiations with Spain, but that the ex-Minister will limit himself to such do:u ments, letters, and statements of facts, as the case may seem to require to v indie ite his offi cial conduct against Messrs. Marcy aud Perry. ? - a considerable margin of generous for* bearance in b^Wfof the misguided and unfor tunate Mr. "fierce. We are inlormed, also, that this brochure of Mr. Soule will not be conlined to hisSpanish mif ?ion "and its consequences," but that it will embrace a scathing review of, and commentary upon, the Mexican diplomacy of Mr. ?l?ore Mr Webster, tt>? results which have followed, and which ma, be expee'ed from the return , through their management, of SanU Anna to power. With the publication of this book, then, all that will b3 required to give a perfect inside history of the diplomacy of this administration, and a part ot the last, will be a * quel trom A. Dudley Mann. As tha author of the original draft of the filibustering and red republican European programme upon which Mr. Pierce began bis foreign policy, a full con fefsion from Mr. Maun is indispensable to a per fectly clear understanding of the subject. Let him imitate the example of Souk, and come ou with his book. More About ths Postal Blunders ? Son's t-me since one of our Souther n frub^cribere- Mr. J. B. Lindsey, of Lebanon, Tennessee? com plained that the Herald which hid been sen', to bini had not been received. We called the attention of the Font Oflice Department and fte public at large to the fact, and some cofres pondence ensued. The late Postmaster at Le banon writes that the paper was directed to ?'J. B. Lindsley."' and fha* as he could not find any such person, he gave the piper to another Llndsley. Now, the books <.f this office show that the paper was sent to "J. B. Lindley," and i? was the duty of the Postmaster to have re turned the paper to this office, with the reason why it was returned. There is a rule of the de partment to tha*. effect. He hvi no right to give it to any person except the owner, as in dicated t>y the fuperrcription. Our subscriber is well known in and about Lebanon, and it appears that the new Postmaster bidnodiffl culty ic finding him. Anti Liquor Law Mrrrnio in thk Park ? See the call in our advertising columns for the meeting of the opponents of the Liquor law in the Park this evening. Interesting develops- i ments of the probable working and consequet ces of this despotic law from and alter Wednes day may be expected. The subject to be dl? cnsied strike* directly home to the business -?ml subsistence of thousands of oar fellow citi Tub Hcmcu'al Revolution.-- Six mouths ago yesterduy, Fcrnaodj Wood was iri"m>>u rated May >r ofNew York, and iuasuiicli as UN administrutwa has uttraocd in>ri: or less of public attention, not only iu the State, but in various 8?ctu>usof the Union, it is prjparti take a, retrospective glance at the Kstnalf ycar'a rccors), and see wuivt be ?na rotlly <io:iu. Tins severity of the ontest 1 *st fait for the. mayoralty wiu> a proof tha*. 'ho corruption temptations of the oGlc<} were a trouper ttaa* th?; ties of patiy or toe obligation- i.f patUta^X compunionsbip. In this nerub race for thn ?chief magistracy of the city Mr. Woo* was tlie successful candidate; a>sd men wli? now lo?k back dispassionately to the diBFipbt>'d scenes aiid beart-burniagK of that contort**! cojnpaittu, even those who opposed the present incumbent moot violently, admit that it isweil for New York ttat ho was elected. The venal politicians who tia<l given Mr Wood their adherence at the lent moment, only b?cacse they expected to mal.e hirn an instrii meni for plundering the treasury, hailed hit, elevation with shouts of triumph; while the re ?ortaers, and tno?e who had long been disgusted with the wholesale iniquities of the City H?M, bung down their heads with shame at the pros pect ot increased taxation, paup<-ri*m and crime. Such af. least was the complexion of affairs on the advent of the present year. In assuming the duties of the office of Mayor, under such inauspicious circumstances, it wan no easy task at the first leap into the stream to stem the strong current that was running against bim; but his first message to the Common Council give ?hopes of a better administration, and contained such a clear and forcible interpretation of the duties and obligations of the office, that even the bitterest enemies of Fernando Wood ac corded to him their meed of praise. At that time we expressed onr determination to give the new Mayor a fair trial; and it is a satisfac tion to know that tbas far he has not disap pointed onr first impressions, although there are some personal foibles of which we might oomplain. Lntil the second communication of the Mayor to the Common Council, there was not more than a tenth of tbe population of New York who understood, or pretended to understand, the administration of our municipal govern- J ment, and even these, either from their laok of executive ability, or want of moral courage to expose the festers of official delinquency, were unable to effect or suggest a practicable plan for the reforms they so well knew to be neces sary. May of Wood, with a boldness that en titles him to credit, unveiled in a single page of his message the venality of tbe whole ey sttm, and, in language that could not be mis interpreted, indicated his determination to give> | at all hazards, the people of our metropolis what they had so long clamored for in vain, viz public order, the suppression of crime and vice, clean streets, the removal of nui sances, the abolition of abuses, a restriction of taxation, and a prompt execution of the laws. It is due -o bim to say that, thus far at least, be has redeemed this voluntary pledge. The opening of the complaint book alone ha * wrought a revolution in the social condition of our city, and has been the moans not oaly of redressing innumerable private wrongs among the poorer classes, but has led to the restora tion of a large amount of property, and reach ed a class of cases which, by being ingenious evasions of the law, never came under legal cognizance. The sanitary condition of the city at this season is another gratifying proof of tbe prac ticability of these reforms. The suppression of the sale of diseased meat, impure milk, and the removal of filth lrom the streets, is clearly indicited by a comparison of the bills of mor tality of this year with those of last year, not withstanding the immense aggregation to tic population of New York? a difference of near ly fifty per cent. The reformation in our police system is equally visible; and instead of findiug. a* in times gone by. a host of demi-uniformed con stabulary lounging on the steps of the Ci?y Ha!J. and at street corners, so man in the de partment is now exempt from the performance of his duty. A dignity ha* tnu< p*e:i impa^e'l to the position of the policeman, while atrtu same time efficiency and discipline have taken the place of laxity and neglect in tin c irp-. By means such as these an example has >>een furnished to the magistrates of other cities, which they have manifested a commendable anxiety to im'tate; aud although tic sphere of the Mayor's duty Is limited to New York, yet we arc not the only ones who have been benefitted by his official conduct. In nnst of the popu lous townB of the Union similar methods for tbe correction cf abuses have been adopted, ? id found to be eminently feasible. Ilut there are difficulties surrounding Mayor Wood's positiou of which he ought not to be insensible. The popularity of his measures cannot fail to make him a target for political sharpshooters. The conduct of the last Logis lature is proof of this: nni doubtless the p sage of the Prohibitory law became a line qui non after the efforts to enforce the Sunday or dinance. llis oourse on tbe liqaor question, as compared with the conduct of the rub r< of other oities, has been commendable; ami we venture to .< -ay. that in th-j existing disorgani zation of society and parties, few men c uH have si> successfully steered between 'he S vlla offanaticism and the Chary Mis of ru n Tee attempt to wrest tbe control ot the police from the hands of tbe present Commissioner" wa? ano ther indication of the terror he had occasioned to th? "little villains'" who swayed 'he coun cils of tbe Stat*-; and they were aaly deterred from the accomplishment ef tbeir design by the spontaneonn outcry of the people ol N>;* York. If Mr. Wood int?nls to ?oo*.'noe bis course of retrenchment and reform, wc venture to ?ay that he will n t only have to combat, the Seward fa" ion. bm a host of green-eyed monsters amonv the r*uk and file of his own party. The result of hU ttrnt six m >ntb*' adta'ahtr** tlon has shown conclusively what an t-fficient magistrate, evin with limited means, c m do. Amid the complexity of hi* avisterial, m nic' pal and police dntie?, he ha? exhibited marked i txecutive ability; and if the Legislature wilt hut | give an a new charter. based upon the i>r>uci- i pie 0 of tht> federal government an 1 pi vce all j the department* of the ci*y under tike control | of ite chief magistrate w>* bav no fear* th it New York will be badly governed.

Now, it appears that the araiaWe Max MareV zek, who has been manager and conductor of the Italian Opera in New York for tbe past seven ycarB, who has been entirely rutned a great many times, and looks healthy enough to stand several more pecuniary earthquakes, has a pretty marine villa on Staten Island, to which he retires during the summer months. Here the vivacieus Maximilian realises to some ex tent the passionate prayer of Horace : ? 0 Rusa qnando te a*piciam," &c. He catches weak tishj when there are aDy ? he writes polkas occasion ally ? and makes preparations to sacrifice himself once more for the sike ot art in the ungrateful city of New York. In this " Chateau Maretzek" the conductor will compose his great work, whereof we have given tbe contents above. It will be noticed that he chooses the form of letters addressed to Hector Berlioz, FioTenkno, Frederick Gye, M. W. Balfe, Thai berg, Lablache, and other artists* managers and critics. The last letter is the crime <le la erbne of all?" To my friends unl patroDS in New York." Some of the m *t piquant of our standard literature is in lett-rs. Horace Walpole, Mme. de Sevigae, Mme. d'Ar blny, Lord Chesterfield, and many other*, have left imperishable proofs of their epistolary grniun. May rot the voluntary exile of Staten Island give us something equally brilliant? The subjects to be discussed are fall of in terest. The Opera at Astor place, with notices of the oyster house critics ? the episode by the Swedish Nightingale and the Chevalier of Iranlstan ? the arrival of ihe Mirti troupe ft em Havana ? Kate Hayes ai;d William Niblo ?Max's flight to foreign parts, and his adven tures by flood and field ? the tour of Sontag aid Alboni- Grisi and Mario in America? and Jirj?llyf laet and most important, like she po t scripl of a lady's letter, the late sea son at the Academy, with all a?>out Fhahn, Coit. LaUrange, Vestvali, the Chevalier WikofT, aDd ? a great deal more than nil tbe reft, we suspect? the amiable, tide, indomitable and uncrusbable MvxmUiin M?ret?k, director ot tbe Opera, chef d'orchrs tre , proprietor of a mwine villa on Staten 1-land, and ostensible author of "Mu?ic in Hcspria." We preiuae that Max, if he is really ?he wtiter of this b:*>k, intends to pay off his ol<l scores, make a clean breast of all matters im portant to the public, and leave the confes sional with a mind at peace with all the world. It may. however, be the joint work of Ma* and the immortal composer of the '? S?bat Mater, ' whose Dame is mentioned twice in the p.o gramme. Master Fry is boiling over with rage t tecause the Academy preferred Rossini's and Verdi's foreign operas to his native American composition, and Maretzek in vry strongly impressed with the Idea that the directors of the Academy have ascertained that there is more than one conductor in the world. It nny be that Fry and Max have favored the world with tbe'r " reflection*'' on American minager*, by severely pitching into the committee that has lately conducted the Opera at the Academy llut let Mux keep his promise? let him tel ? vis nil he knows abont the Opera siuoe he has I een in America? although he did not originate the " institution '' with us, by any mcans-r-it will pnt money in his purse, and it will give the public a great deal of that personal tattle abxit artists which is thought so piquant in the world of fashion. We shall thus have another contri bution to our standard literature? we have had the confessions, experiences, and adventures of the Chevaliers WikofT, Ilarnum and Greeley. Look out for the letters of the Chevalier Ma ietz.ek ! A Nr.w Cuban Purrr ? Tkotblk thk I- iMRfsTrRH. ?

The Pueblo Is tbo organ of that large siction of Cuban residents who are disgusted with the mismanagement of affairs, and the squandering of funds, by the Junta.

The soft shells of the Young Men's Democratic Union Club, at their anniversary meeting at the Metropolitan theatre, on Satur day night, accoidiog to our extended report of their proceedings, published yesterday, had a very interesting time of it. To be sure, the prospect of a fusion with the hards appears. I rom these proceedings, to be very slim; for, if Mr. John Cochrane may be relied upjn. Mr. Dickinson and his set are but little better tban Know Nothings of the third degree; but, in spite of all this, this eol't meeting was a rather cheerful affair. The letters from Senator Ton- J cey, Gen. Pillow, Governor Trice of New Jer sey, George M. Dallas, late Vice President, of the United StateB, and Daniel E. Sickles, were quite encouraging to thewe Union soft shells. But there was still another letter of the very greatest importance in the case -the letter of nenry A. Wise. The hards expected bim. but didn't get him; but, writing to this soft shell Union club, he says:? "My bcirt and son' are with you, with all my might'' Tha1 ?ettles the question. When a man gives hid beart and soul to a party with all h"s might, it m y be oafely concluded thar- he ha' made up hm mind that it is the right party. In this way. Mr. Whe having dfcided tint this democratic soft shell Union Club of New York are the real Simon Pure democracy, the outside hard sb<-lls will pleatc tske a note of it for their future guidance. Mr. John Cochrane, by arid with tbe advice and consent of the administration, under the direction of Mr. Wise, will tell theu whtt to do. Apply to Mr. Cochrane. Rumored Extra Session ot this Lujmla tthe. ? By reference to the extracts ^shich we publish to day, from that "peculiar institution" of New York the Sunday press it wili be per ceived that " Governor Cla'k, Thurtar Wwd. and other magnate of tbe whig party.*' during tbeir visit to this city, lait week, " agreed that an extra scss-ion of the Legislator# shall be con vcred on the 17th of September, to apportion the State, and to do up such oth"r legislation as may be deemed necee?ary for the benefit of tbe party." Now, wo snspect there is something in this. The call of an extTa se-Mon brings the old Le gislature together; and the Seward party have that, and can do what they please w' h it; whereas, by waiting for tbe regnlar meeting of the Assembly. Mr Seward and his pipe-layers will bave to rely upoii tbe desperate chances of the new House sn ' tbe n*1 w Senate to be elected in November. Looking, therefore, to the ! n portant nrntter of the apportionment of the State, and to the equally important matter of pitching up tbe Liquor law, so a? to save it from an otherwise absolute repeal, let all b\nds prepare for an extra session oi the Legislature. Even as a Presiden ial dodge, tbe temptation to Governor Clnrk a? ;he Ag<int of Seward, to rail an extra session, is aim ?st irresistible. IVbr n our Seward ec inomVts can do their elec tioneering and pipt-l+vtng at tue expense of tbe people, it can hardly be cx{ :;t;J they will let ?lipihe opportunity. Wno ik Hk? ?
