The analysis of the brine in which the American died beef wes raked, pro re* that that meat had lost a -eat proportion of ite nourishing essences, aa well saline organic. According to M.

But, in order that the teats exported from America shr uld be u*ed mure gen ially In Europe, there U still an important precaution b be taken, namely, to cat up the animals In about tbe me mamer n* our butchers do with beef and mutton, i leave aside the poor pioces and send over but those ot ie fl'st quslitv. If the American speculators do not take more care of heir ii>voices of meat, and do not look for some other I gent than salt lo preserve it from decomposition, ibey 111 soon see their pristi ce fall Into tbe greatest dis iredit. iud ibis is already the cue. This kind of trade has al caily ceasid in our city, not because these salted meat* re not to lie found in our markets, but because tnere are io more purchasers.

DKllOCTIONrt. From the fuel* snd observations in this memorandum, re are enabled to draw the following inferences:? 1. That the American sailed beef, trough richer in azote rd in phosphoric acid than the fresh meat at 76 per cent rater, and although offering a quantity net-ly d >uble of hose principles at tne same pric-, cou-titutes, neverthe sss, an alimeut far le.* sucoulent savory and appetU ug, and for these reasons cannot yield ac beneficial a a iJmrnt as fiesh n eat. 2. That the Ami tlcan bacon is tar lofeiior to the bacon f our country, and gives a great loss t< the consumer. 3. That our citizens have given up the use ol Americaa sited meets, not from groundless prejudice or incon llsncy. but atler an experience of several month* anl mr well-founded ressou*, ut which we liUJy approve.

It la ustful to bring these fact* uii lsr :he notice of [he exporters, in order that they may send us American ueals in another form, and in better condition, ao that Ire may be tnabled tosubstltu ethoiu for butcher's meat. | 1.

In order that the culiuary comparisons of Messrs.

Tliey have dune the entrary, and have thereby obtained results which lo not prove anything. .Salted meats have never, kt will ever, anywhere be c< ns'dered as equal to freiu neat.

CINCINNATI THE MECCA Of THE DEMOCRACY. The Opposition Elements Taking Soundings. Call for Two American National Councils, Atb, Ac., Ac. A GENERAL DEMOCRATIC VIEW. The Cincinnati Enquirer takes a survey of the field, thinks there is plenty of good deioocrutic tim ber, but ia opposed to trjlng the experiment of try ing again u new and obscure candidate. Hear him:? We have said nothing on the sultfect hitherto; hut, uh the election is now over, and the choice of our delegates is near at hand, it come., np legitimately and properly before ns. The most prominent names that vie ice urged in connection with the post are the followingFranklin Fierce, James Buchanan, George fi. Dallas, it. M. T. Hunter, Heury A. Wise Jesse D. Bright, Stephen A. Douglas and William Allen. Then are other respectable gentlemen spoken of hilt public opinion, so far as It has been developed, inclines to a choice out of the list we have put down. The present exeoutiv?, Mr. Fierce, will doubtle-ut have partisans in the National Convention, who base their support upon the fact that his administration, in its principal measures, has commanded and re ceived the luvor of the people, and especially of the democratic party. Ilia vetoes of prodigal and un constitutional expenditures?the faitbfulues* with which be has adhered to a strict construction of tbe constitution and to the reserved rights of the States his courage In enforcing aud maintaining, even against loon I prejudice, national laws?his upright fidelity to the principles of tho organization which elected liim. and the inexpediency of selecting an untried over a tried man, w ill be tbe arguments urged by some inbis lavor, and will give him, proba bly, a strong vote. Pennsylvania seems to he divided in her prefer ences between her two distinguished statesmen, Mr. Buchanan and Mr. Dallas. Both are aide and strong men, who have had much experien-e in po litical adults, and who have filled, for u series of years, the highest stations, with credit to them selves and usefulness to tbe country. The dein >? c.racy of neither can be questioned, aud they come from u J-tn'e which, though second in the Union, has never had a President. Mr. Buchanan has been a United States Senator, Secretary of State and Minister to England?Mr. Dallas, Senator and Vice President; und tbey have long ranked among the brightest stars in the democratic constellation, as respects talents and attainments. The fact, how ever, that quit* a bitter rivalry prevails at home between their partisans, aud the belief of many that to nominate either would dissatisfy many denoowts in Pennsylvania, and perhaps peal the State at the election, will have a great deal of influence among delegates in the convention, it being important that a candidate should run who can re :eivc tho united vote of the time great Htate^ of New York, Penn sylvania and Ohio. B. M. T. Hunter and Henry A. Wise appear ta be the favorite Souihern candidates. The glorious and extraordinary canvuss made by the latter for the ottireof Governor of Virginia, tho'eloquence ln,j zeal displayed by him in overthrowing Kuow N >? thiiigisru, and the muny strong points of his charac ter, have made him many friends with the national democrat y, notwithstanding his uufortnnate and bud antecedents in tbe days of Jackson aud Van Boreu. Mr. Huutcr is the well known United States Sena tor from tbe Old Dominion, who. since the death or Mr. Calhoun, lius been universally recogniaed as the leading Southern man in that body. He possesses an active and philosophical mind,'of great native fore?, which has been strengthened b> the mo.-.t as aiduonsstudy and reflection; hri private rhara t.-r is pure and nu allied: and. from Inn ability .md versa* tile attainment-, and the orthodoxy of hpolitical creed, commands an attention in the Senate which is conceded to but one or two individuals. He i* in every respect a flint class state -man, of the old Vir ginia stamp; and ii the President is taken from the South? a very pr ilasble contingency?he is undoubt edly the I est choice that could he in.ide. Mr Wright and Mr. Douglas are Western men, whose characters arc familiar to our readers as well as tluir pant history sud servic< s 11 the democratic cause. The former is the present icting Vice Presi dent, and a man of sounder judgment, clearer head, stronger natural sagacity, and ui re wisdom, learned from actual contact with the world, it would is- diffi cult tolind in the land,as it also would a better d-mo crak Of Mr. Douglas, the "little giant." we can hardly speak in terms of too great commendation. In point of Intellect he has no superior, and few epulis, while l is boldness, vigor and declai in strongly re mind one <>f (irnerul Ja< k-*<>n. The rancor an I vio lence with which Mr. Douglas ha- been purs ied i?y the oppesition, for l?elng the author or that wise, just and beneficent mea*iire. the Kmsns-Nehrask i hill, is sensibly dinrini.-hing. a b le it ba- endeared him to the heart of every democrat who lores tlie ft ? ?' mental principles of his party. Mr. Douglas d ot desire to be considered ? < andidata f ir the list Presidency; but, nevertheless, he will have Bom* friends for that station. Thu same remark c :i lc applied to Mr. Allen, of our own State, who. ft i many years, has Ixs-n a lepresentative man <?{ ti e Obi i democracy ami who, by bis great ability and -tri< t political integrity, has well dererred that distiru tiob. Vi e believe a President and Vice President ticket can be made out of the lftt we have named, whi -h will be ( Id ted by an overwhelming majority, and whore administration would dignify and adorn our political history. We trust sin fi a ?c(action will be made, and that no new candidate wh mo merits have n t Keen discussed bctore the people will bo brought in rs a compromise man, and nominated at ao late r- ' ur as to preclude a popular examination into h rits and titness previous to hia sele ;tion.

The capital error oou mitted by Sewurd ?a? the common mistake of mediocrity, which Is too spt to under value popular honesty and intelligence, lie imtv Slrcd that tbo people of the North, because they ittliked slavery, could be Induced to organize the u selvut into a party with do other olyect than to wage war upon the South, and maintain a danger cm. aection?I agitation. But he forgot that honesty, wilh all its f-iiQtilioity, is often au overmatch for ill Is out knavery, with a if its astuteness; and that the people of the North, though fhey had no aflbction for slav ery. were warn ly and devotedly attached to the Union.

[From '.ho Few York letch Auierlran. ] William Henry Howard's chances for the Presiden cy are very good; over the Western, Eastern, and Northern States he has an immense vote, and in the scrub race that will tsko place betwisin the other candidates, the prosperts of his winning are very fair. The binds and softs, the fusion party, the limpet nice men, and, though last, not least, the Know Nothings, will each have their candidate. The division tluit will ensue upon this, the scratch ing of tiekits, the opposition of interests. ]K>titical or d personal, will he such that Mr. Hewurd may go in with a noli. But we have liecn informed that his watrhfuliiesH Is so gient, and his jealous anxiety shout his peri-onul position so strong, that unless lie have a juried certainty of currying the Union ho will not rbk it. Of course it is unnecessary for us to define our po litical creed. A united democracy would command tvety aiu-istanre In our power to m ike its candidate triumphant. Hut, unhappily, division destroys Its inherent elements of success, and whilst the Van ltui tun and Bransons are waging an internecine war, how cun we expect that a democratic candidate for the Presidency run have unv hope to wiu ? We should like to tre Henry A. \Vi-e, of Virginia, or Stephen A.

But in the ?l?cnco of this hope, we fear, as we h ive said before, that the republican party will carry Wlllinm H. Hi ward upon its shoulders, at least into the Home of Representatives.
