We have Just gone through the celebration of the feaat of dantc Antonio, whloe has lasted for several days, and to a great estenl retarded, If not put a stop to all bustnem; the town is consequently unusually dull. Paring the fancvm the great oatbedral of Saalo Antonio has been brilliantly Uluminated Inside and out, and the private bouses have not been lacking In their religious zeal of a like na ture The feast of St John the Baptist has also recently taken plaoe, and the season may be said to have been about equally divided between religious ceremonies and business Itanclng, featting and music have been the ruling passion for some weeks. Stnoe the establishment of two steamship companies in Brazil, there Is scarcely any limit to the commercial progress of (he oounlry. We have two lines regularly ouching here, one, the Brazllan Steamship Company, have two Koglitb built steamers, the Tapajis and dan Salvador, which brtng us news from Rio Ja.iero and the ports to the southward every few weeks, and keep ui posted in relation to things In he outside world. Tbe other company Is kbown here as tbe Com mina do Amasonas, the stock of which la principally bold, 1 believe, In Englanlandln ltlo There are also Kogllth built boats, and the assocta tion en.ioys exclusive privileges from tbe government The names of these steamers are the Rio Negro. Capt ? i?al . the Oameta, Lt. Flguetredo ; the 8olem<i??, Lt. Pa rabybuna dos Rsts ; and one other whoae name I have not at hand. These boats ply on the river Amazon, atd receive a constantly tncreaitng support In the way of pat sengers and freight. The population of Para Is slowly but stesdily Increasing Various government improvement* are going forward, aucb af quays, wharves ani public buildings ; but those matters. Unugb constantly operated upon by laborers, will be several years in process of construct on ; the lethargic movements of these intertropical people is actually catch lng, and your correspondent, if he resides here much longer, will doubtless become Initiated Into their snail paced movements and pais bis time at luxuriously as any of them, swinging In his hammock and looking out upon the srest estuary upon which i'ara is slluat.d. The harbor ol this port Is one of the be it on the Brazilian coast, and only exceeded by that o' Rto Janeiro. It Is formed by a long narrow island (one of a group), which stretches along the main land and affordi an ample and secure shelter from the sea. Veisels are loaded by lighters, though the water Is of sufficient depth to admit them of any size to Me at the wharves. About this time hides, India rubber and the other exports of the region are rather scarce, and a high market Is anticipated There are do# In the harbor quite a little Heel c vessels, which 1 can plainly count from my win dow These are the English brlf Isab. 1, Cspl Hoott; tbe Brazilian ship Recife; the American brigs Adelpbl and M Shepsrd. and the brig Mmtiuiosnl eb > Belem, both Por tugueae. lhe above are discharged. The following ves sela are loading for foreign ports:?The English bark El leslrei; Portuguese bark Ulirlera; English tcboonsr Shark; American brig IsturetU; rpanl'h schooner Claudlna; and English brig Freeman We have also here the Brazilian i war steamer Tbet's and the steamers Tapajos and Sole moes. belonging to the Ann/ m Uimpauy. You will see by the steamers above me Atoned, that Brazil is an exoepUon to the general rule which sank* tbe American descendants of the la in races as dectdent and esbeustel the government within the past few years has been wide awake to tbe advantages of steam naviga lion, and though our own countrymen save not yet bad a hand in the construction of loeir vessels and machinery, the silly jealously and fear tber have always had of us 1s fast disappearing before the advaacs of our oommeretal power Rinre 18.'>4 the country nas been at peace, and ao man could be more popu'ar than the Emperor is among the more Intelligent classes The trade ol this port Is really important and ts fast Increasing It extends in sll directions? up the Amazon to an aim let endless distance, and down Iks South American coast It ts in particularly intimate re ations with Menus, Baleo, and Ms anhao, coast wise, and I need not mention the forels n commerce that centres here. Tbe place has above 14,000 inhabitants,Is agreeably and bealthi'y situated, asd bids fair to be In future times to tbe great Amazon what New Orleans ts to the Mississippi A gocd deal of ex< dement has recently existed here In relat on to tbe expected comet, and so tearful were the anticipations that public prayers wers offered up in tbe cnurrors to avert me uireaieueo aaoger tao leading journal (Dinrio do Oram Para) c tine out dally with solemn ] dissertations in learned Portuguese on tbe sub ect, bat tne day predicted by tbe German astronomer came and parsed without any oometlc mature-tall one, and a general jubilee wai the reault of tbe rovirstm of public tecilnf.

The battle of the campaign was in a great measure JecldeJ during the past fortnight at the primary elections held in the various counties of the State, and the returns, If reliable, are such u to assure Weller's success It has become the rule in California, owing to the weakness of tbe opposition, to cause the democratic nominations to be the certain precursor of elections before the people. Consequently the contest amor, the rival candidates in the democratic ranks was waged at the lime of selecting delegates to the convent on which Is to assemble on the 14.b Instant. The prei -nee of Mr. Brodorick here, who It Is said returned front the Fast dtssal.stled with the manner the admtnistra don had dispensed its patronage, end resolved to obtain an expression of opinion frcm the people in his favor, gave peculiar nolnt and seriousness to the proceedings attend d? the pr'mary elections Then Weller takes the tie.3 in favor of the administration, (though no one had usailed It), and the most objectionable means adopted to puroe htm on the party ar.d forestall the action of the convention. 80 far was this course pursued, and by papers whit a have heretofore opposed tbe demoeratlo party, that many good men profess themselves perfectly dtsgusteJ, and will hesitate before voting for a candidate force ! holent volens on the people by a few newspapers who gained reputations only by aiding the enemies of the deerc eracy. The pross injustice, It is conceived and keen ly felt, that has been done by tbe exclusive nature of the federil appointments in this State, was also an clement wh ch wu kci t in view but not debated by voters, all was serenity and quiet until their character wu diicover M. and it must he acknowledged the intelligence had the offect of rarrowing the ba'Ls and 'oarenmg tbe ardor of the present administration's supporters on the Pac.Bc I' nearly every other State in the Union, the orl mary election'system In its operation is made to determine beforehand w bo are ti receive nominations when tbe convention assembles. Eacn aspirant has bis ticket, 'and those on It bound by an Implied, and in many oases an expressed, obligation to support a particular per son Sach was the case m the recent elections here, and we en In courcqnence Weller, MCorkle and Nugent ticketc. The champions of each aspirant worked as vigorously and wub a* much earnestness aa the lmporance of toe remit demanded. The eieciiin of delegates furuisboe a singular example of the power of party machinery and party fealty It seems, from the well understood fast that the nomtree of the ronventl n U certain to be elected, by the people, provided all goes well, Mr. We.ler is to be our next Governor. The votes of about one fourth of the party were brought out in his support. and in moet counties the friends or his opponent. Mr. McCo kle, were defeated by the ba est majorities It is especied of course that Weller wl 1 receive the fall vote of the party in the event of b's nomination, but there are tbo?e who place uuboi.ided faith in the power and pollute ssgacity possessed by Senator Brodenck, an 1 cannot believe any other than his choice, (on this ncsaslon Mc Oor.le) can be put forward by the convention Those who know Broderick, the leader of the opposition to Wei ler, are aa'isfled that the loud xtio ;U of victory now re oualtng fsi an- near among the chivalry, or as they prefer to be considered, administration democrats, par ex -v..*, iray soon be turned into the lamentation and m .rtitlcstion of disappointment. Political conventions are rathe uncertain things, and under the influence of a master genius in political management, as Brodnrick has p-oved himself to be, they can be moulded and directed to purposes very different from what their reputed stripe would indicate. The friends of Weller, heated by unexpected advantages at the primary elections, ( 'aim full two thirds of the delegates returned, to be pVdged tirmly in snpport of the gallant Colonel, but this pretension is flsti* and emphatically Controverted by the Brodenck jourials They, though acknowledging the t'gns to be in fttvor of Weller, yet by no means exhibit any wast of confidence ai to .he proepeols of their own especial favorite. Mr Mc'Jorkle. Then Nugent, who<balso in the fleld with a number of delegates elected in bis Interest, It Is announce*' tn the Herald, will go Into the convent", on with a sufficiency ef votes to give him the nomination. Bis friends, it is stated, have never felt to sang- ne of his sue* ess as at the present moment.

Position of tilt Pro-Slavery Party-SpwcS mf a Border Human. I Correspondence of tbe 81. Louia Democrat.) Lbayimwortu City, July 21, IHAT I wu summoned to oourt m a witness yesterday, and v heard a rpeech teade In the Court Honae by Peter T. Able, which, regarding a* Important, 1 hare concluded to giro you the main pointa of the remarkable atU.r. Mr. Able, * 1 after thanking the people for calling upon him, aaid that he bad frequently beard it charged that the pro tlarery men In Kansas had aold oat tr the tree State men. Thia wan false, and he wl ibed to atate the poaitlon of tbe proslavery men of Kanaaa, ao that their frienda in Miaaourt . might aee Into their plana and policy, rhey had not aben doned the idea of making Kanaaa a alave Slate by a jug full On the contrary, they were greatly encouraged, and * be took thla occaiion to aay to pro slavery men mat the nrninAP-fta nf th? narlw In k'nneua urora hriirhfar nnH mnro hopeful than they bad ever been. It seemed that there *ai a (real deal or misunderstanding In Miasouil in regard to the party In Kansas, and he would give a history of the paity and tut policy; for he knew ah about it. In the flrst place, he iftld, they organized the party under the came ol the pro slavery party, and it worked well, because it brought all men who wore la favor of the South into one solid, compact body. Am time paaied on a great many pnrtous came into the Territory I from the Northern States who were not pro slavery men In their feelings, but who were against the free State men In Uelr redttunoo to tne la it of the Kansas Legislature. They found out that thle claai of Northern men would not I act with the free Slate men in reeigianne to th.< laws, nor would they att * lib tho pi o slavery men because they were not In favor of slavery. In order to get ihti clan , of Northern men to act with them, the pro slavery party agreed, alter consultation,to change the naice ef the party ' from pro slavery to the law and order party. Thisohange ol names had a happy eQ'ect, because it brought a good ' many men into the party that tney could not , have gotten into their ranks In any other way After a while a still larger number ol people from the Northern S'ates came In. and polity dictated another . move. He had written a ca J for delegates from all the counties In the Territory to ateemble In Lecomp ton last winter, and they did meet and deliberate upon ihe future action of tho party. A great many men had moved Into the Torrltory from (he No thern Slates . who had voted for Mr. Buchanan and who were opposed both to the black republican and pro slavery parties, and | It was the polloy of the pro slavery men to propitiate this class of men It was admitted in their deliberations thai the name of law and order party did not have a national reputation, and that tho name of the party must be I changed. It was admitted that the whig party was dead, and its name would not answer the pui |?o?e vhey ha* la 1 view. It was deemed unwise to assume the name of Americans or Kcow Nothings, for that parly nad been able to take bat one trluk In the Presidential game, and must soon die out After viewing the whole ground, it was agreed that the party should change Its name from the law and 1 order party to that of the national democracy. The democrats had just elected the Pi. allien'. and would have a majority In Congress, and If the pro slavery party In Kansas should assume the name of national democracy. It weuld bring them Into favor with the administration and with Gongrtas, and at the same time secure to ilielr party the services of tho free State democrats from the Northern States. Time bat proved that this wat a good move and great adran'ages would result 10 the party from It This was the history of the pro slavery party In Kansas, and under all its names It had remaineo sound on the goose, and the charge that the ore slavery men In Kansas had sold out to the tree Hollers was Infamously false. He was glad to Inform the proslavery men or Platte that the prospects of the party were bright, and that If we el l do oar duty In toe future as well as we have done In the past, success was oertaiu la regard to Governor Walker be said he did no endorse evtryining ne wi run, nui ogi pre^irou in una grounds against him yet Walker was a good manager and a keen man, and be thought be undent >od bioi He believed when Walker held his secret council! with the President and bis cabinet tbat ihey were chalklog out a policy for Kansas. The people should remember, ra'd he, that a majority of the cabinet were 8ojtbe?n men, and be believed tbat Walker's trip to the Northern States atVr bis oonsultations with the President and all bis talk North about Kansas becoming a free State bad a dcslun in IV The object was to get himself endorsed by the Northern press and the tree State papers In Kansas, and after be bad succeeded in this be could pnt down the free state men In Kansas by the strong arm of the government, and poinl to hit endorsement by the Northern press and the free State press In Kansas for bis jut ideation. He believed In Walker, tbougb be would not endorse blm fully, and believed tbat he could be managed very easily. In regard to the nomination of exGovernor Ransom for Congress in Kansas, be regarded this the best piece of policy they bad yet done. It was a capital move, lie wou'd get tbc democrats from lbs Northern States to a man Ransom was sennd oa the goose, as sound as General Calhoun, sad bs must not bs suspected by the pro slavery niea Mr. Buobanao sad bis admin 1st ration were to oome down to tbe work right and not pig? false. His sincerity and thai of his Cabinet was to be tested, end he should and would be made to de right or they would blow him and his ad mi a Mrs tlon Into ten thousand pieces. They should do right, or the national lemocratlc party should be broken op, for Kansas was deiermlned to have her >ight. He expressed himself sanguine about tbe soundness of Mr. Buchanan, and knew he had to do right or be blown up. Tbe na'loaal democracy bad sleeted a large majority to the constitutional convention, and a pro a avery ooneti tutton would be made, and be believed tbat It would be submitted to a vote of all tbe people that were in the Territory on a certain day, of whlcn due notion would be given to tbe people of Missouri When tbat was does tbe poople must protect tbelr slave property, and get np tbe seme feeling tliey once bad up, and that election would be carried as easily as they had carried say of tbe other lections. Tbe free Slate met In Kansas were resting sailer tbe beller that ibey had a large majority In the Tem lory, which was n fact, but luey were not on their guard; the men of the Northern -bates were not on tbelr guard either, but tbe pro slavery men were He enjoined It upon them to keep this matter still and not blab It about, but lay low and keep dark, and wrrk for tbe great stake Properly managed suocess was cer aln He katw more about Kansas and the pro slavery party than any one else. He had spent a large sum of bit own money, and raised n greet deal from others, all for the cause In Kansas, and professed to know all about It. He had organized more of tbelr lodges and taken more people Into tbem than any other man, and be knew what was going on. [Correspondence of tbe Cladaaati Resette.) I.*w muses K tunas, July tf>, 1H67.
