The edi 'or of the Charleston Mrrcvry, who, now as tbe tim" draw* near, is fil ed with regret at the pro?p?*t of Mr. Buchanan's election, because he fears it will delay disunion for lour years, ought to lie clapped in an asylum directly. Waste of time to talk to th?*e people; mild cathartics, plenty of frr eh air g-xvi water, and a gentle course of mors I inalinwt In the #nly course to be pursued with any bopv of suc The Great ??ttli The Prapect In Ptmyl* Tula and Blew Jersey Thus far, since the October elections, the chances of carrying Pennsylvania and N w Jer sey against Buchanan have not materially fan pi oved. aud the probabilities are still in favor of his election. In Pennsylvania there is the impracti cable third ticket, pure and simple, of Fillmore aud Done bun in the way, and should it carry off tive thousand, two thousand, or one thousand votes from the opposition union ticket, it may decide the campaign. In New Jersey, the Fre mont and Fillmore conventions, assembled for the purpose of a compromise upon a union ticket, have adjourned without accomplishing anything; and New Jersey, therefore, as far as Fremont or Fillmore is concerned, may be considered as abandoned to the common enemy. In addition 'o Pennsylvania and New Jersey, the late Indiana election indicates pretty strongly that that State also will cast her electoral vote for Buchanan, and we need go no further in the North to secure his election by iho people, considering the l i mentable weakness of Mr. Fillmore in the Sj.ith. The suicidal division of the opposition Jo *cee in this contest into two discordant and 'shin^. parties was a step <vVi u promised nothing but universal defeat in ;1 th nomination ol' Fre mont. Atter his i jtoifiaiiou, the astouibhing popularity of this ne v candidate and his plat form very soon promised to override all opposi tion, and to carry everything before them, con sidering the demoralized, corrupted and de bauched condition of the spoils democracy. But the late Pennsylvania and Indiana elections have shown us that this part of the spoils demo cracy. when driven to desperation, is still strong, and that faithless allies and treache rous friends are still open to the appliances of bribery and corruption. Independently, how ever, of all these drawbacks to the republican Fremont movement in these late elections, there have been yet some other considerations ope rating in favor of the democracy, which cannot be overlooked. We have no doubt that a vast majority of the people of the Union, including nine-tenths of the people of the Northern States, upon the simple and unmixed issue of this Kansas question, would pronounce against the bor der ruffian policy adopted and pursued to this hour by the Pi?ree administration and the democratic party to make Kansas a slave State. No sensible man cau beliefs for u moment that any considerable number o; the conservative and independent American people. North or South, can ki their hearts do anything but condemn the hor rid atrocities in Kansas committed by and with ill" advice and consent of the administration, under which the plains of tha', Territory for a I twelve month past have been the scene of battles, fire, devastation, robbery, rapine, murder, and all the crimes ineident to a war of extermination, by TOvtrnment ofticers. regu'ar troops and ruffian in-reeuaj ies, against a oody ol tree State settlers, weak in numbers and in mean?, but stubborn in defenc; of their constitutional rights. Again, the mind of ev< ry i:.dependent and honest American :ur t revolt against that policy of the Ostend manifesto which would convert our President iuto the chiet of a Rang 01' pirates against the rich stands of our weaker neighbors. Yet, assured as we are of these facte, and that our people arc a law abiding, magnanimous and honest people. North and South: aod aasarrd as we are. too,, that the universal sentiment of the Nortv. is against the extension of slavery into :ree Territory, especially by force of arms, there has still been a higher consideration operating upon the public mind, of higher moment thaa the oppression of border ruffianism in Kansas or the piratical < Mend manifesto, or the d spotic policy of extending the area of Southern slavery and Southern political power by force of arm*. This higher considerate in. notwithstanding all others is involved in this very questioa of " disunion !" ?? disunion !*'?the hue and cry df G ivernor Wise, Chevalier Brooks, Mr. Tooml*, Mr. Fill more. Mr. K'.itt. Mr. Hlidell and company, upon which, with th"ir secession furorr. they have s ic ce?d?d in neutralizing to a great extent in the North the popular indignation against Pierce and >rs border ruffianwm. against Brooks and hn brutal outrage in the Senate, against the (Mead manifesto. and against the tyrannical and lawless polfcj of making Bousac a sla-- State by lire and ward.

Ours is th?* fir^t example of a gT'-at and suc ce-c lul republic covering half a continent a id ?h? dilb rent < limat's and prelections of Maine, V'iiginia and Louisiana it is th first example of a popular confederation under tb<? -am feral government, with a system of free whit,' labor in one half the .-Utt and a system of Afri i an slave labor in the other halt -eurh half form ing itself a solid section of the Union, thus dis tinctly mark* d ty the existence or none xistence of this peculiar African institution. To form such a Union as our-. of such apparently dl-< ordant elements, required a compact of mutual concewions and compromises, and a steady adhesion to theae can alone maintain the Union. Fully aware of this, the Amerlcm people, ambitious of the glorious future before them within the Union, and of the certain disasters which await them with the dis ruption of toe Union, an* particularly sensitive upon this great issue; and if they are at times l?d astray by d' -ignitig dtinaffOgMi and despe rate noihmen. we ha\e still in tb< ir patriotism a reliable guaranty of tbe saf- ty of the Union.

But it does not follow tliat with his election if he nhoul^be elected?the Kansas ruffian policy will stand ap proved by *be people nor the Oteadmanifesto, He will probably find that to save hi* administration from quicV d?*tnictlon he will hrve to cut adrift ftom those secession and d^utiion demagogue* that have ruled the roast and the party in the business of this carpsign. He will probably, also, discover that the game of intimidatir?n and nbjugation is played out, and that the very peo ple that have been frightened into his support will have discovered the trick. We a?*e speaking this in anticipation of Mr. Buchanan s election. But he is not yet elected. The narrow margin of two or th^ee thousand * 'ites. out of an aggregate of nearly four hundred and fifty thousand east, in the Penroylvafiia Oc to'? r election, ie not an absolute assurance of success in November. Possibly with a rebound o< the people to the real practical living issues of the contest in Pennsylvania and Tn^i?n?, Mr. Buchanan may still be defeated. The probabili ties are in his favor; but the result may be against him. We await the result John McKom m Um Ha^onlty. The United States District ^torney has been giving a few more votes to Mayor Wood, by making a speech ostensibly in favor of Libby This charming oratorical effort, which combines the solid Demosthenic periods of Webster with the playful wit and stinging sarcasm of Clay, is published in the Libb) organ, and will probably make an immense sensation among the Custom House democracy. We pur jKJse to devote a few minutes this moro ng to an examination of the Honorable John's point a After a rather theatrical opening, some ihing in the style of a ten dollar meto-drarna, Mr. McKcon reiterates the old charge of fraud t gainst the Mayor in relation to his California peculations in connection with a partner of the ame of Marvine. The facts of the case are, hat Wood and Marvine disagreed about certain pecuniary matters; that alter some time and money spent in the courts, both parties, like sen sible men, left the settlement of the disputed ac counts to referees, and that these referees decided that Mr. Wood owed Mr. Marvine seven thousand dollais. w hich is the end of the matter. We need not tell our readers that very few copartnership accounts are settled without a dispute, and that very frequently both parties charge each other with fraud. It is the easiest thing in the world to charge a man with fraud, but not quite so easy to prove it. In Done of the documents quoted by Mr. McKcon is there adduced the slightest morsel oi proof that the Mayor was guilty of criminality. Mr. McKeon further desires to know why Mayor Wood does not deny the charges made agninst him by a miserable hanger-on of some of the Sunday papers. This is a copy of the Express; tactics in relation to Colonel Fremont. Suppose a drunken loafer should call Mr. McKeon a thiel and a murderer. Would Mr. McKeon think it ne cessary to deny the accusation over his own hand? Mr MKeon proceeds to deny the regul(\rity of Mr. Wood's nomination, when the fact is pateui ? hat the nomination was as regular as any that ever cume from Tammany, and that it is sup ported by all democrats, save a few disappointed oyster house politicians, who did not hud Wood so ready a tool as they expected. It is very late in the day for Mr. John McKeon to come out and talk about frauds at Tammany. Who and *h t is Mr. John McKeon ? He was a briefless dv yt r, and by the regular gTadationd became a potato politician. He has fed af the pub lic crib for years, and has been one of the bitter eel, grt . diest and most unscrupulous of parti /,iv. He has bad but one rule for his political life, that is? not which was the oest party for the public good, but which party would put the most mi ney in the purse of John McKeon. He has hten opposed to every party that did not nominate him to some office, and to every candi date from whom he could nat reap some mate rial ndvantage to John McKeon. He was op posed to Pierce until Pierce gave him a fat of fice, since which he has become one of the Pre sident's most abject toadies and most slavish or lickspittles. He is nothing but a party tool, and has bud nothing that he did not get by party machinery. Mr. McKeon charges Mayor Wood with using doubtful powers, when the real cause of com plaint among the people in that the chief magis tiateof the city has not power enough. He abuses the Mayor for endeavoring to get two hundred thousand dollars with which to improve our Central Tark, and make a place within the limits of the metropolis where the weary artisan might breathe the fresh u rf heaven and ' look through nature up to nature e God.'' And this attempt to beautify our city is. according to the Honorable John, a crime. Is he so stupid as not to know that the people are one and all in favor of the immediate impro\ ment of the Park, and that they would be perfectly willing to place a million in the hands of the commission to ad vance so good a work? Another one of the Major's awful crime3, according to the Honora ble John, is that he caused the old Aim - bou.-e to be taken down, thus giving eiu l?lojm? nt to a large number of workingmen alio most have starved, or been ted by charity. That's a terrible crime, isn't it, John? Another crime, thut the Mayor attempt*' 1 to remove certain street nuisances, but was not ncc< ssful-?the strict letter of the law not jusUfy ing bis course. " That's wormwood." ^ys the Hnorable John, when, iu fact, It reflects credit upon the Mayor. He certainly tried to do om thing, which cannot be said of his predecesmrx. Hut 'be Honorable John had now only tired hi* ?mail rhot He comes imm< diately after* jr. 1 to his long gun?. and discbarges a br^adsid^ wb.rh he fancies will demolish the Mayor for ? <. r. Pome time ago the United State* Coorals ?t several ports on the continent of Europe wrote to the Mayor, informing him that numbers of cri minals had been taken from the bouse* of come Hon ami shipped to New York. The Mayor too,? (SOBpt measures, and sent baek the cariroes ot crime mid pauperism indl-atid by the Consuls For this act b?- receives the applause of the entire community, with the matftka of the Honotable John MeKeon. We do not presume that the Hon. John intf ds to claim kindn-d with any of foes* criminals: but be goes on in a frightful way alsitit bis father's blood, and bis blood beiug In sulted. so that it would engender a suspicion in a mind not fully informed as to the purity of the Honorable John s lineage. People have a great fancy lately for talking of their blood. John A King talks about bis revolutionary blood, and now?/nr./,* d,cnwi* Artrm we have John Me K? on talking about "my name'' and "my blood. ' Pray, is his name any better than anylmdy else's t.ame. or bis blood any purer than that of any of his democratic friend-? These fellows ought ?o remember the apothegm of Sir Tliorw Browne? when one boasts ol bis ancestors be is like a po tato: the bent part of him is under the ground. Mayor Wood's crimes, so far, according to John M< K< on. are that be desired to improve the Cen tral I'nr k. and todiminish our taxes by seuditigliaek foreign criminal paupers. That'a a terrible Vteord , but in the further examination of this most absurd, bombastic and illogical harangue.we find the greatest crime of all in this sentence:? Ho far ?? we can judge of the mar/* aota, be has an party attschnents. That is an awful thing in the eyes of the Honorable John, but it Is a good platform to go to the people upon after two years in the City Halt It shows precisely the ammw> of all the small oyster honse democrats. John McKeoa in cluded. They wanted something from the May or. and not getting it, they turn about ami oppose him with ail the rancor of disappointed place hunters. After Mr. McKeon had got pretty well along in hia speech, kv began to strike wild and to for get what be had said before. He charges the Mayor with taking the Police Department " out of the bands of the Chief." He forgets that the Legislature has placed the entire control of the department in the hands of the Mayor, the Re corder and the City Judge; and that by this commission the Chief may be tried, suspended or removed precisely like a private in the foroe. And further, McKeon dashes about, abusing the Mayor for what he has done, and for what he has not done, and for what he ought to have done, according to McKeon, and did not do. There is a little bit of clap-trap for the Irish and Germany who the sapient John thinks will desert Wood, so that the Know Nothing aandidate may be elected. The Honorable John closes with a tremendous literary reminiscence, in which he compares Wood to Marino Faliero, some time Doge of Venice. McKeon desires that Wood should not have his portrait in the Governor's room, but in its place an inscription: "Decapi tated as a politician/' which is an effort of wit worthy of Punch or Burton. Mr. McKeon says that he has " stood in Venice on the Bridge of ighs.'' The next time that he does so we ad vise him to jump off. As a parting word to the oyster house demo cracy, we advise them to stop McKeon's mouth til) after election. Their Bhow at the polls will tie small enough under the most favorable cir cumstances, but with another speech from McKeon they would be extinguished beyond the

possibility of revival. Good morning, John. The Financial Crisis in Europe.?There is no reason for believing that the difficulties of the Dank of France have been in any degree miti gated since we had lust occasion to refer to them. There are rumors that silver is increasing in the vaults of the bank and its branches. There is a tumor that the Rothschilds have agreed, for a consideration, to furnish the bank with $30,000 - 000 of gold, to be procured of course mainly from America. But we find no better foundation for these stories than on dits in the newspapers or on the Bourse. Meanwhile the bank statement is viewed by the public as such a document can only be viewed?namely, as the most disastrous financial exhibit published in France since the crisis ot 1817. A loss of sixty-nine millions of franc* in one single month, and that accompanied, in crtdable to state, by?not a curtailment, but? an increase of issues, is enough to induce any man of ordinary prudence to withdraw his funds from the bunk to a place of greater safety. The Bank of France is rapidly passing the point at which those who control her can choose between suspension and contraction. So long as tome decent proportion was preserved between btr circulating paper and the gold in her vaults, the Emperor might hope to avert the crisis by ^crilicing the speculators. He might save the country at the cost of the Credit Mobilier. But, unltts we arc much mistaken, the time for such an election is now paBt. Contraction will not save the bank if the depositors and note hold ers lose confidence and make a run upon her vaults lor specie. We know that >lie could not pay one quarter of her debts in gold and silver. Should this occur, therefore, an absolute failure of the bank would be the necessary consequence: and it is not unlikely that the Emperor might be driven to anticipate this catastrophe by authoriz ing a precautionary suspension. It is conjectured, however, that the rumored substitution of M Magne lor M. d'Argout as Governor of the Bank indicates a desire on the part of the Emperor to tesist the pressure a little longer, and to hazard the bank's existence in order to save his credit. Inquiry is made what becomes of this gold which is disappearing??when will the gold return rom the East? The answers to the queries are very simple. The gold passing out of the bank coders in France and England is being hoarded up by the country people in France, and to a still larger extent in Germany. Rumors of ap proaching revolutions are rife on the Rhine, and m< n a ho saw the severe times of 1848 know the value of the hard coin in revolutionary days. In parts of Germany the banks are hoarding. As to the gold which has gone to the East, we believe that the whole aggregate of this outlet of specie is bat tmall. The armies in the Crimea spent lar less there than is imagined : thanks to steam, ihey got almost everything from home; and even the few sovereigns and napoleons that were scat tered through Turkey were sent lock almost di rectly for European manufactures. Those err gnatly who ascribe the present Eu ropean trouble to the outgo of specie caused by the wur. Its causes ar<? really very different. It criws Hist from the inordinate speculation and extravagant living in the continental capitals; ai.d secondly, from the general mistrust whi?!b prevail* among the people, and the universal diMid of revolution, leading m< n to hoard their money, and deny to the banks and each other the co operation necessary for a wholesome state of things. Tiir. Affair of Nafij*.?From the news by th<' A tlnntic, it appears quite likely that any mail may bring us news of a general explosion at Naples. When the intention of the Eagli?h and French governments to send squadrons to Naples was made known in that city, the Direc tor of fhe Police announced to the King that h" y. ould not answer for the public peace for an In stant after the fleets hove in sight. So heartily do the Neapolitans hate their government that the very sight of a foreign fleet was enough, in the opinion of this functionary, to arouse them to n bellion. Under these circumstances the King has ordered that the moment the ships of the Allied squadron are seen In the bay. the city ard adjoining country shall be placed in a state of siege. These measures arc not calculated to strengthen the diversion made In favor of Naples by the Russian Cabinet. Whatever one's sympathies may be, one can form but one] opinion about a throne so unstable that the very sight of foreign rihips would destroy it. and a people so inflam matory that they require martial law to re ?train tbetn whenever foreign vessels enter the harbor. The right of the British and French to interfere may be as questionable as the Russian diplomatist makes it out; but at any rate, the right of the King of Naples to rub1 as he is doing is still more doubtful} between the two wrongs one may prefer the one that is least offensive to humanity. The revolution of 1848 began, as everybody remembers, in January, at Rome. We shall soon be in January again, and the Neapolitan soldiers a ill need to watch closely, as tbere will be a be ginning of revolution again. Estatfs of Intfstatk Forkiovkr*?Rtoirrs or Fouhion CoxWU. -Elsewhere we publish an important opinion of Mr. Attorney General Cushing rm the right* of intervention claimed by foreign consuls in the settlement of the estates of fhfir intestate countrymen. At a good deal of misconception prevailed on this subject, it vu time that it should be set at rest bj some distinct declaration of the law from the proper quarter. It will be seen from this document that the es tates of intestate foreigners are, like those of citirens, subject to the local jurisdiction of each State, and that foreign Consuls have no right of interference unless expressly given by treaty. The distribution of the property in case of intes tacy, and its testamentary destination in case of testacy, are governed by the law of the de cedent's proper domicil, with some few excep tions, where the competing claims of domestic and foreign creditors affect the property. Foreign Consuls have no jurisdiction in such cases, but they may intervene by way of advice or in the sense of surveillance, but not otherwise, as Consul, and of right. In the case of a foreigner leaving a minor heir in the United States, it is the duty of his Consul to see that a proper guardian be appointed to secure his interests in the succes sion ; and in the absence of adult heirs he iB also bound, if the circumstances require it, to see to the eal'e keeping of the will and its transmission to the parties entitled to the property. If there be no litigious matter involved, as in the case of a traveller, or other transient person, dying with personal effects in hand, his Consul is permitted to take possession of the property i'or transmis sion to the decedent's country. Such are the laws of the State of New York, and. with some slight difference of detail, such are the principles which regulate the laws of every other State of the Union. In faet, amongst all civilized na tions there is an identity of legislation on this subject?the rule, unless where special treaty stipulations intervene, being* that the local authority has the power to take the inventory, if it will, the functions of the Consul being then limited to the right of assisting in behalf of the legal representatives of the deceased. thjb latest mews, ?Y MAGNETIC AND PRINTING TELEGRAPH*.
