Whig S<?tt Central Committee," tor tue purpose ot u ppoi nt'oir a day f,*- rbe meeting of the tVbig Stau- Convention iu re<e<ence to our November election; aud hi re was a meeting of ">bo Republican State C?ntr?l Committee" ap pointed at the anti Nebraska State Couveatiou beid at Auburn l,et tall; and, by a unit >>ea<t ttful, fratcnal aid bnmonioue arrangeweut, bt.'b tbese committees met at the 6ame hour, oa Wednesday, at th? Ast.rr H um;, and in ttie fame loom. The result of this artmirab e fra ternization, an might Lave been expected, w u& that, ae a party , the "wbigs" agreed aod tlie "republicans" agreed each to hold their State Convention on the game day, at theBaroe p'aea, ai>d for the Sijne common objects. Furtucr mcre, in order to adapt themselves to the movements ol all the other parties in the field, thi* "wr ig" convention, and this ' republic in" convention have been put the last upon the list, to wit: the 2<> today cf September. From the extracts concerning this decree of tbe Amor House coalitionists, which we hive placed elsewhere In this pap*r. from the columns editorial of our cotemporaries, it will be seen that tbe Seward orgaas are in a blard and heavenly state of satisfac tion that the usually ponderous and sonorous Courier and Enquirer, though in a oof ; and eub? ued strain, sings the same song? that the Kirprttit has little or nothing to say, boiog still in the market; and that upon the whole, it is a ''fixed tact' that the fo^sl] remains of the late great wnig party of the Empire State are to be merged at Syracuse into this piebald, hy brid, heterogeneous ooagiom&ratton of free soil and abolition fag ends and factions, bearing the modest and musical title ot the "republican party." It farther appears that while Thar low Weed is to hold tbe string of the kite, Mr Joseph Blunt, John Jav Co., and the Lieutenant Governor aud bis aids, are to balance the tail. This was a great day 's work for tbe Astor House conferees, confioering tho state of the the rmometT nn<l the working of the new Liquor law. Aud, speakiog of liquor, wo are remi id ed that neither the 'whigs" nor republicans" did anything, suggested aoy thing, or siid any thing in this Astor Hease caucus in lerereace to the amendment, repeal or modification of ?his prohibitory law. 'i'he evidence was b.-1'ore their eyes that it was a failure, a mockery in fact, little b?tter than a nuisance; they ktew that a regular and wide spread move, ment is on foot to mnke the repeal of rhis odious law a direct question before the people in November; and jet they had nothing to pro. pose and nothing tosny upon the subject. Phis is. a very enrious fact? a very ominous circuin stance indeed. What docs it mean? We thi >k we cau tell ilij Carton League and State tem perance Alliance. In mi aDs that tho Sewart anti slavery (unionists intend to throw ttie liquor quest.un overboard ii November? that they intend to dru;> temperance and everything else that uuiy interkie with the onject of a gene ral Northern fusion upon Sward and his auti-slv ve<y programme for the Fr jeiuentia" cumpaigu. Wh have suspected of late, from the r,- ,ieP ootid treatment of this liqno.- qms'toa by our Sew ard organs, that they were backing oat; and in truth, their narrow escape from Gov ernor Seymour last fall would hardly justify ttie same risk again with lhe liquor interest, in al' | its ramifications, organizing for active resist ance in every hoie and corner. We trust, however, that the party or parties opposed to this Seward negro worshipping aud Maine law coalition will hold it responsible before the people, and upon the distinc: issue that thin abominable and demoralizing proii bitory statute shall be repealed, an-i that ihc party enacting it shall bj superseded in the admiuir>trat'on of our State government, as unworthy of oflbo aid unworthy the confidence of the peo pie aLy longer. A common understanding of the opposition forces upon this issue, ia ttnir nominations for the Legislature, will, more than anything else, we dare say, contribute to spoil tbe election eerlm ites yf Mr Weed and His big and '?little vtll.ins." When a polrical coalition upon tbe false pretences of "Aa A-t for the suppression ot Intemperance, Vies and Crme," gives a new impulse to imempenaae in d all its attendant tvils, and wcakeus ti-reiy tbat public reject for the laws in general, which Is the only reliance of a free people, the jartiis thus guilty should be held oc oumablo for tne conseqm nees Nor should a dispo itio > partto "biek out" bs permitted t, forestall the verdict of t he ecmnanity. Hold thi m ?o it. Th. re is at other feature in this joint decree of the Astet llc ii-u conferences worthy of no tice They appoint the 2G-.h day ol September lor the meeting at Syracuse of their Siaine-e twin convMitloos; and singularly enough, it so happens tfa'. tho Know Nothings hold their nominating State Council on the 25th. Of course, the Seward leaders will be in to*u on the 26th, while many of the Know Nothing* will remain uear the s*lt works to *Une-s t5?

The t-toek of the (irow'h ? f 1854, which were a full average, remained to a consider ible exteut uu toio up to the a tuma and wintor t '54 and '55.

Grain ad vu net d in about the same ratio; the highest price obtained for prime white Gene?ee wbeat was about $2 75 per bushel. The highest price realized tor corn in large quantities, was about SI 18 a $1 19 for prime Western mix^d . and $1 20 for S uthern white, per bushel. These high figures cut off, in a measure, a' I demand for export to Europe, as prices for same time before and since, ruled above quo tations m the Eoglish market*. The home demand, however, was so great, as to absorb all tbat was offering, and at high rates. The stock getting low dariog the winter, as the mild er ce jfion advanced, the chief reliance l'or re ceipts was on railroad*. Fortunately for consumers, the crops of wheat in Canada bad been tali; and under the recipro city treaty, when Western aud Southern stocks were comparatively exhausted, aud famine threati.nod the papulation on the Atlantic sea board, large .quantities of Canadian four were received in New York by railroad and tbe Hudson river, which tended to keep down prices. For the first time in the history of the trade, Canadian fl^ur, on its receipt (a New York, waB actually re-shipped to a consider able extent to Richmond, Baltimore, Norfolk and Charleston, and other Southern points, for domestic use. It was not until abaut the advent of June, that any serious relaxation was commenced in prices, acd after receipts by the Grand Can il augmented stocks beyond the immediate do mestic wants of the trade. As soon as curn dropped down to a point that would admit ot export at a low rate of freights, priccs aga-n became better supported, and the decline checked. Such t? as the confidence of dealers in a con tinuance of high prices, that large contracts were made in March tor the delivery of Iudiaa corn in June and July, as high a9 105o . and some of those time engagements were settled in June at. 98c a 100c., and sc me have been since settled in Juiy, as low as 9L\ a !)2c. F our con tracts were made for June aud July , deliverable at about $8 75 a $9, which ' av>- s nee in many cates been settled at much lower figures. There still remains confidence in the value ot' Indian corn, as near six months must pass ov-r b tore supplies of the new crop will b a suffi ciently dry for shipment ; and soure three months or more must elapse before much of it will be in a lit state of dryness to eater ioto domestic consumption. In the meantime the pist year havii g been one of a very ehorc ctop, the country must be pretty well drained of supplies of old corn before the newctncom'! fairly into consumption. We learn that in Ten nessee ? the best Indian cam country ot the vVeat ? where, in plentiful years, this grain lias b:ea sold as low as 10 cents per bushel, such wis the deficiency there awl in the adjoining Stages, that the article, at points convenient to trans portation, actually reached oue dollar per bethel, which was forwarded by railroad to des titute districts of Georgia in lar/e quantities, wbere the crops of the past sea-o j were in a meamre cut cff. The largest purchases in this market were made for tbe New Eoglaud States, wture supplies were ? xceedingly bar ren. Nex to New England, the English, later in the sea?on, were the heav est buj ers. Wheat being iu very light supply, kept u.? longer than corn; bur. since tie increase, of re ceipts of old trom the Went and of new from the Sou h, prices have gradually yielded la fa vor of bujers. The growing crops are universally repre sen ted to be good; but many suppose tint tli etlVct of this prospective abundance will bi lc>s sudden on prices than many persons l?e !i?ve. Under the idea of a future decline, millers probably will only buy from baud to mouth; while the taruiers, when Uiey Hud pri :es rtctding b- low their views, will be disposed to withho'i t.b"ir supplies frOul mar set. a very decided and material r< duction mas sooner or la'er be readied, stuulit no accident* 3 et occur to the unmatured aud unsaved oroo<. nil ure Ui-po-ed to admit.

We observe that here ai.d 'here iu ?be interior there are souie pros# cutiotB going ou against liquor sellers ant 1 qucr dealers. From all that we can learn, however, the rural districts we very lit'.le ahead of 'he city of New York iu the en fore -i j u?eijt ot the law. K> re, an anybody may w e, bj nifiht and by day, the law, ho for from ar jeeting or o mmi-biiiL', has largely increased the selling and driukiug of all sorts of ioioxi cating liquo;s The only point where tbe Uw appears to have a iy vitality ou this issue, is wbtre the liquor drinker gets bis skin so full as to conbne bis ideas-of the principles of locxno tion. Then the police are down upon him, and be becomes another offering to "the Tombs." After hia arrest the law requires the intoxicated individual to testify the placeor places where he procured his iiqeor or liquors, spirituous, malt or mixed. This is generally attempted, but according to the "Drunkard's Directory'* of the present "hea-ed term," the victims of the rumeellers are so completely obfuscated, in most cat-es, as scarcely to remeaber whether they got their potations in New York, New ?Jersey, -or Coney Island. In the. country, they appear to be laooring under thesam^ dilliculty in tracing the effect to tbe cause. We had leared that this prohibitory law would play the mischief with oar fashionable watering places of the interior; and that Sara tofifti where distilled, fermented aud mixed liquors have always been ia greater request than Congress water, would especially suffer by this restriction oi all alcoholic stimulants to ctiur-ofoes and private houses, purely for "sa cr amenta!, medicinal, chemical, or mauufactur ing purposes." But it aupoars that our appre hensions were premature, auJ that the glory of Saratoga is still uudimmed. After chilling their stomachs with the purgative salts and iuagnetta of the Springs, the privilege 1* still in lorce of warming up the vacuum witb any thing you like, from FreLch brandy do vn r,o Laid cider and lager bier. The Saratoga Re pvbUcan says: ?

This is conclusive. We confess that the law is a humbug, aud that old stagers whj tiave lieen slaying away from Saratoga, from fear of tbe Liquor law, need- stay away no longer. If tbe principal virtue ol the water of the Sara tc?a Springs be tln> qualification of the stomacn for branny, let oar old campaigners go np.

We are afraid that tbe Department does not ex ercise a proper surveillance over its subordi nate". Compla-nts ol the miscarriage and din nppearar ce of all kinds of mail matter are con tinually made to us, and it is very evident that tbe Department needs a thorough ? verhaul ing. We do not think that matters will b? im proved until C-n^ress is driven by the outside presmre to take the matter in hand. In the meantime thousands of letters ar : carried by ejpre?ses in defiance of the law. In some cum h our merchants prefer to pay tbe postage, ai,d ihen an extra fee to the express? so our ch?ap postage does no* .amount to maoh after all It is only a ax on every letter this we write, while to ensure safety we mist send our letters outside of the mails. in t.he specitl case above mentioned, we hav? a right to d> maud the interfere'ica of the head of the department.

Our advice to all during the present " heated term," ia to keep as quiet aa possible, bathe frequently, (remembering that swimming bath* Aould never be taken in the middle of the day, but in the morning aud evening, and n?vrr continued more than fifteen minutes,) eat sparingly, and read Merriam's bulletins JlfjTupvx dea bottes, will the Sage of Brooklyn be good enough to tell ua when it will be cool tnougta to eat, drii k, work, read, or sleep com tortably ?

New Rule is IUuvari* UunruitHTT. ? The Board of Overseers of Harvard University, Matwchu^etts, lately refused the compliment of the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws to Sam'l A. EUot, o t Boston. Why ? Because he voted in Congress for the Fugitive Slave law. in pur suance of the constitution of the Uoited State*, and his oath to suoport it. " Old Harvard," however, has adopted the new doctrine of the higher law, aid her doctors of law are measured by the nullification principles of the Hiss Legis lature. Yet, after all, Mr. Eliot has received a hightr compliment than an empty degree, in being voted unworthy in this case This re fusal will make him a man of mark and in rit, and if he remains but true to the constitution, as heretofore, it will procure him a thousand distinctions more desirable by far than the empty appendage he has lost.
