Wulker as worse than ''Cbw, Hale or any other abolitionist;" and a flaming and consuming "White Sulphur" letter from Col Keitt against Walker, the democratic pwty and Mr Buchanan and bis Cabinet. This chapter of rich materials we submit as the text for a few passing observations upon the present aspects of the Kansas imbroglio, and the crisis to our political parties, sections and institutions. The Charleston Mercury informs us that the proda very part j in Kansas ere confident of success? that they will (at their September Convention) adopt a constitution with slavery acknowledged ji it," and that " if this constitution is referred to he people for ratification, it is intended to refer t only to the registered voters, who rill, doubtless, ratify it," But the next two euti-Dces in this connection wear n very auspicious and bloody complexion, to wit:?" We iave more hopes of Kansas than we over hod. IVe have gre?-t faith in tfcr: fighting capacities of Southern men " We wy that there is something >f a sinister and sanguinary muiniig in tnis language. and particularly in juxtaposition with the remark of G i. Atchison, that if the Kansas con titution "if to Ix referred, as Gov, Walker says, to ill the pe?flt who shall be in the Territory/ on the day tf voting,-then nt rrvt-il and uill hare a majority a' the tolls on that day." Now taking this " majority " of Gen. Atchison, ind tbo Southern " fighting capacities" of the Hi-rciny together, we inter pre I them us signifying bat oh the <lay of voting referred to, aaotber irmed invasion of Mi'sotnians may l>e exacted in Kansas, which ' must and will have a oajority'ut tb? polls on that day." We regret hvt our Charleston coteinporary should be uivou to an extremity so desncratc as to chuckle ind rub its hands at the prospect of the success >f slavery in Kansas, through the lawless and demoralizing agencies of a plot so wicked and reasonable as this. We, too, have ' great faith n the fighting capacities of Southern men;" bat iiough there be furions fire-eaters and foolish fanatics in the South, as in the North, we seriously incline to the opinion that this threatened Missouri invasion of Kansas will be a fizzle. Since the fall of 185G not less tbau thirty thouiand free white settlers have bom added to the k>pulation of Kansas, including some ten or welve thousand voters?a force of itself which, luly notified, will be fully competent to protect be polls of Kansas against any force which can e brought over from Missouri by General Atchi>n. Under this impression, we apprehend there 'ill be no armed inva-ion from Missouri "on the ay of voting," and for the all-sufficient and selfvident rea-on that "it cannot be mane to pay Hut, sunjKjeing that the people of Kansas shall tfer no resistance to an aimed pro-slavery iuva' A?, f XCifc^-Arif" tliof /"** a*> "l'"H ivu ttvui i, uai uutciu.ii it uimti runii link at it, and slyly encourage it; and that thus he majority which (General Atchison ' must and kill have" is secured in l'avor of a pro slavery ;tate constitution, what will it amount to? ?othing?worse than nothing; for it is utterly ireportt roup to suppo^: for au i us taut that uch a State constitution for Kansas, so atified, can secure the upproval of >ugre?. Nor must we be considered so very erdant as to entertain the idea that our Southern ece**jon fighting men count upon this bringing Ca'isas into the L'olon as a slave State. This is , lot (he'r game. Their game is the destruction of ' he administration ?a sectional re construction ' f parties?a Perce sectional contest for the sue- i estion?the division of the Union and the spoils nd plunder of a Southern confederacy. Here the letter of Col. Keitt com> s into play. I le is a young and enthusiastic man, clever ( ithal, and naturally ambitious of Southern prolotion and distinction. What may be expected J f him and the whole secession school in this next on press, he has, with his usual frankness, broad- j r foreshadowed in this consuming letter. Ho , oes not beat about the btn-h, like the Richmond 'i/uth, nor fix his eyes upon Mr. Buchanaa whilu ithcring poor Walker; but he boldly lashes the ! latter as well a? the man, and flatly confesses , hat he has as little faith in the existing demorntlc party as in the present democratic ad- ; ,^ia)n.?mn II,. _u tl.-t I. 1 luui.i-iauvii. lit nujn ui?i l\ OJi."Vii it iWk i o the South " through the nefarious ad fraudulent intervention of the fodeal government," which, with a good deal oort of Fuch language wo construe Into a formal iltia Southern declaration of war ngmnet the dminntration and tho Northern democracy.

SEW YORK HEgAIJ), M The totemMBh Bwta WImU ?w Um frW We publish elsewhere the new charter of th Louisiana Tefcuautepec Coupony, and with it at ! article fre?n the New Orleans Delia, and a lotte i fr . f oenre<f>oiident, explaining the paat hie to;/ and present condition of the famous Te huantepec project. From all of those docu rnents it appears that the okrads whloh haw obscured the prospects of the Tehoantepec Cam par.j art' probably dispelled, aad that all th< rival interests which for the past ooople of yean have defeated the practical objects of the sehemi by their oonU-ntioos ase now harmoniously blended into one ooncera. The Garay aad Slo< grants, and the Horgoos, F&lconett and La Sdr< interests are ail possessed and embodied in th< "Louisiana Tefcuautepec Company," just organ ized at New Orleans. So it is said. It is therefore not Utopian to hope that norm | practical step may shortly be taken to turn th< : grants to good account and open the route U actual traveL We hear already that arrange j mente have been made or are In progress for th< j establishment of a line of mail coaches from th< ' Atlantic to the Pacific terminus of the route; anc j likewise of contracts with eminent steamshij owner? for line? of steamers to connect in cithei oceau. The eminent advantages of the Teliuau tepee route will indeed justify a considorjvbli outlay of capital in throwing it open t< j commerce; we trust that now that poac< | and b ?xmony have succeeded quarrels am | suicidal contentious, the gentlemen whocontro i the scheme will not allow it to be wrecked ot | that great peril for incorporated companies, in ; adequate financial arrangements. Simultaneously with this consideration of in i tcrcfals we bear that the republic of Costa Rlci I has granted the interoce mic right of way by th< I river Son Juan to a company of which Websto; ; wag a principal or tl>e principal representative ii i Central America. It instated that the pre^n ' government of Nicaragua has concurred in th< i grant; this however is denied by persons claiming J to be well informed, who a?sert that some linn since the government of Nicaragua conceded th< grant to "a party of gentlemen in this city"? Commodore Vanderbilt and his friends, we pre si me. It is likely that thin route will not b opened until these rival interests arc consolidated or tight it out till the extinction of one or ttv other; the government of Nicaragua, should i avoid now filibustering schemes, will, like tic lady in the old story, sit by quietly to sea whicl whips. Further North, the Honduras Railroad enter prise is progressing with commendable vigor One hundred Intelligent. Anglo-Savons are on th< spot, directing the labors of the iuferior racvs and, up to this time, nothing has occurfd to in jure tne prospects or dim the hopes of the com pany. This line of interoceanio communication will naturally be one of tne most important; no other bus so good harbors on both ocea n. In New Granada the Panama Railroad is in a peck of troubles, of which the unadjusted claitr of the Untied State# for indemnity for tbe April massacre, is one of the least complicated. On more than one occasion hostilities with New Granada have hardly been avoided; though, now the best information from Washington promise* a satisfactory solution of the difficulties through the agency of Mr. ilerran. I Finally, the government of this country, as ii ! known, have appropriated $25,000 for furthei surveys of the Isthmus of Darien, witv a view tc i muk- another final attempt to discover a w;ij across that inconvenient belt of land These are the projects and enterprises by whict j it Is now proposed to cross from the Atlantic W ! the Pacific. They may ail be said to be feasible -semt more so than others, bat all sufficiently so foi prudent men to invest their money in tbem ?c long as tliev arc in tbe hands of honest managers In the course of the next four- or five years it ii likely that all of them will lie in successful opc ration, from the Tehuantepee to the Darien route the Iloncluras Railroad, which is sustained by English capital, will be ready before then, ami will probably prove a most serious rival to the Panama line. There is reason to believe that these route* may all be opened withoat intertercnce or trou ble fioni G*cat Britain.

Judge lagnduuu'i OtrMon-Oowmr Adjudgtd In Owlmpt. According to previous announcement, Judge ingraham delivered hie deoieions on Saturday on the two cases relating to the Street Com missi oner's office pending before him in the Court of Common Pleas. The first ease was on a motion for attachment against Conorer for contempt, in violating the injunction order issued by his honor, restraining him, the Sheriff, his agents or attorneys, from interfering with the books and papers appertaining to the office of Street Commissioner. The second case was on a motion to continue said njnnction, made on behalf of the Mayor and Commonalty of the city of New York. In a lengthened exposition his opinion, which we published in oar columns yesterday, ( Judge ingraaara adjudged Mr. Conover in ooatexspt He declared that the evidence showed the contempt to be deliberate and pre-arranged, and therefore meriting punishment But ia order to give the defendant un opportunity to escape the penalties due to the offence, his Honor xeierved bis order on the case uutil Monday, suggesting that it Mr. Conover restored a'.l the * books and papers, and surrendered possession of the office to the luwlul officer, he might purge 1 himself of the contempt, and thereby escape puu ishmcut ou payment of costs. Thus cne act of this tedious drama is concluded for tbe nonce. And now let us have no 1 more applications for oortioraris; no more legal shifts and cvptdients to cvude the law; but let r there be on the part of Conover und his counsel 3 a respectful 'ubmiar.ion to tne order of the Court. ' The public are sick io disgust of this protracted ' j legal skirmishing. To the lawyers aud the ins ! 1 and out' of the Street Commissioner's department 1 | it is no doubt very exciting; but the people want the busings of the city to be attended to. It has txeu neglected too loug, and it is only by some | thing like a miracle that the public health has 3 not suffered materially long since in conjoin :nce. ' We hope, then, Mr. Conover anil take advice fr^m Judge In graham aud come into Court 1 today, confess liimscif willing to defer to its . decrees, restore the documents he has taken 1 I from their lawful guardian, put his band in his i pocket and pay the costs; end then retire like a ! respectable citizen into private life. It is due to public decency as well as the public interests ' j that he should do so. But from the course of his counsel all through the ease, we think it highly probable that no such result will bo obtained. I Although nothing emanated from the Supreme ' ' Court up to the close of business on Saturday, it ' is very likely that a certiorari in this case. a? well ^ t as m the o*here, has been privately applied for; so that we may look out for a' other scene in .hidge lngraham s Court this morning In :hc Injunction cav Judgelogr&hura decided that the order should continue in force against nil the defendants exefpt Mr. Field; but as to him it was dissolved, as be did not seem to have done anything except what fell strictly within his province as counsel. In delivering this op'nion 1 his Honor took occasion to mark his dlsapprobv tion of Mr. Field's course in regard to the v iclatiou ot the injunction, and to repeat the opinion , he gave in the habeas corpus case that the appointment under which Couover claims to bold the office of Street Commissioner is not, in his ) judgment, valid, and confers no right thereto. In tliis opinion, as well as in the justice of >h ; Judge's decisions on Saturday, a vast majority of the citizens of New York agree: but for the will ( of that majority the adherents of the Albany faction have ao respect. They will persist obstinately in their mischievous course, in utter disregard of the interests of this metropolis and of the public peace. For weeks past we bn\ n seen | this case dragged from court to court; the proceedI ings before one Judge reviewed and annulled by another: political parlizonship Hashing out | through tho eloquence of counsel, and interwoven i with their subtlest arguments; a spectacle calcuj lated to lesten popular respect for the law, to affect the dignity of the hcucn and to damage the reputation of the legal profession. Let us have done with this discreditable litlga gation, in order that the functions of the Street Commissioner's department be resumed. We have suffered too much already from the delay caused by a fanatical passion for usurpation of uower in a clique whose wicked machinations ( | have involved this prat and prosperous city in i almost inextricable turmoiL ' Out Cur Ls.ui.m.aTor*,- It is a fact which cannot be controverted, that for some time Withe h *iooa of the Common Council have been I devot< ?l to prating about politico to the neglect of Impottint practical measure*. The mrmb:re > bare Urn engaged in angry and undignified di-eus*icns, rather than in legislating for I the best interests of the city. At the close of i the last session of the Board of Councilmcn various .important measures, affecting not only the l comfort but the health of our citizens, were ! passed over for want of t'mc to act upon them, among w hich *c may mention tlie confirmxtlon of 3 the contracts an! specifications for cleaoiug the r streets and !he laying of sewers in those streets \ and avenues which are not already provided with r them. It will be remembered that -ome time ago 3 the Common Council ordered the sewers to be laid, but in consequence of a technical objection ? on the part of the Comptroller not one of the r contracts has Wen commenced. Thus an im r port ant wheel of our municipal machinery is k. tk. mUIsm. /vf ? awdskal. I m ut iut whiuip vm ? <NiiCiil. ?

We pubhsh to-dif ft full report of the l?a first sittings of the Southern Conuncryial Comsa tk? assembled &t Knorvttle, Teim'wee, with n reply by a Southerner to the etri< in- rio suy pibscd b/ tu cu tho pnx if fx1 Old lv>lut Convection Vbaicver iu*y be excited co tue part of the membeie of these convaiuooB by the commentaries we have indulged in regarding them, they cannot complain that we have not afforded them the fullest opportunities of making toemselves beard. No o her Northern, or even Southern paper, has devoted so much of its space to reports of their proceedings and statements of their individual views. We deserve the more credit for this, as we place but little faith in the practicability of the schemes pro pounded at these conventions, and we have not in general to thanlc them for macfc courtesy in their relatione with us. . Witness the < Sorts made by Mr. Pry or, and certain other rabid tccessionista at the present convention, to < xolude the r porters of the Northern pr? ss?efforts nndci vtood to be specially directed against the New York Hn:.\u> for ite end<;avcra to protect the people of the South from toe delusions attempted to oe practiced upon them. Pupping by a matter which only affords us amusement, and which, besides, has been set right by the commoa Reuse of the majority of the delegates, we have again to repeat that no journal in the Union is more disposed than ourselves to further any project promising to advance the interests of the South, always provided that it be Lot obnoxious to 'he welfare of the country 'tenet ally. We invite the members of thtse conventions to show us any one measure suggested hy then: whieh can l?o rai.t foliar that char,icier, or which iDdvfcd has been attended with any practical nsutt iu connrctioa with the ioterests of the South itself. If they wilt cast a retrospective elonce at the schemes brought forward at their Southern commercial diets, tuey will, wo thick, be forced to arrive with us at the conclusion that never was so much deliberative and oratorical energy expended with so tittle real an vant? go. Out of seven or eight ol these eon vrntions held at Richmond, Nashville, Memphis, Charleston, New Orleans ard Savannah, what have ^cen the actual fruits? Flenty of novel and ingenious theories, such as Maury's idea of the Amazon and Mujsistinni. ard Calhoun's famous idea trivinrr to the liven and lakes of the South the designation of " inland boss;" but nothing, we repeat, like substantial or practical results. Of the multitude nt projects for the multiplication of railways and canals, the establishment of direct lines of transatlantic communication, the extension of Sou?b"rn trade in South America and a ho?!; of other such schemes, not a single one has been realized. Tht first step of a really practical nature that hat been taken by any of these conventions was that adopted at the Bristol meeting this year. Tht delegates actually decided to send Mr. W Ballard Preston to England, to indue the projectors of the Great E^stfrn to let her make her first trip to Norfolk. We will say no'bina more of the other effort made at the Old Point Convention to give a helping hand te Dudley Mann's transatlantic steamship scheme the magnificent subvention of $8,000, the calculated cost of the four steamers necessary for this service being 87,000,000. Tt will be seen by the letter appended to tho KnoTville proceeding* ! that the subject is a sore one with our Old Point friends, and therefore, out of consideration for their susceptibilities, we will make no further allusion to 11 ' In regard to tbe other complaints advanced i against us in that letter, we Lave only to refer tbe writer to Mr. Blunt's speech, reported elsewhere, for a full confirmation of the opinions that we have advanced in reference to this scheme. Whether the Knorvilte South'rn Convention i* resolved to turn oier a new leaf in the history of the* bodice and to eeUlilUi for IHelf a cha racter for practical good sense and energy ol action, wc ar? not as yet in a portion to determine.

Another of Uio*e appalling disaster* which shed. a gloom over no many homes, and dhioh an' nnfortucately too frequent ' on our water*, occurred on the Socnd on Saturday morning, the harrowing details of which wc 1 gave in the Hkrmji of yeeterday. The circumstance* under which the colli*.on j between the *teamer Metropolis and the prop Her ' J. N. Harris occurred, indicate a singular n-mi wnee# in carrying out the regulation* governing or opposed to govern yi-ssrls trading on thr Sound. 1 or they show a serious want of some pro vision in three regulations a* regards propeller* It appear* thai the rule is when steamer* meet head to bend, that tb^y shall both port th*il helme and pans to the rlcht; but when a *t oner mi-, ta o ?allinrr ioaci>l uhd must wltn Kor K, course free, and avoid her an beat aha may. I n this instance the propeller had a forward mil up, which mom* to have obnenred her head light, which, as well as the fact of having bcr canvasspread, gave her the appearance of a sailing vow eel. The pilot of the Metropolis accordingly, in ; stead of taking the course he would have done ; bad he known the approaching vowel to be a steamer, attempted to pam her on the left; and ' aa the propeller kept on her regular course, a I collision was of coarse inevitable. In this account the officers of both agree , o that there does not appear, as maf 1 tors now stand, to be any ground* for censure on either side. But we think that [ while there is a possibility of such a catastrophe as this occurring, whereby fifteen persons, sleeping in fancied security, can be hurried into eternity without a note of warning and that too when all was still and calm on the waters, with out a gale to ruffle them, without a fog to obscure the vision, and in '> bright clear rtarligb! of a sutmm r morning , e such a thing is pos sible. we say, under anc.i circumstances, it i? evident that there is either a glaring defect in the law whirh regulates navigation in there waters, or there is culpable negligence In enforcing Ik Why should not propel lets, which are "0 likely to be mistaken for saillnj craft, < p-Jkv! to carry eoae signal at night by wfcoh ; they cm. be distinguished jrithoat uj danger of ' 1 BUJ-tttkC 'i If there bo any diToct It tLo Irk govemng the* matters, I tb; Pnivd States District At ' i toroty, wt:o- ?Ja!y wt Ut,.- it In to UtL? rv 1 ovRcne o*' u30*d aUi occur" eg ov the water miyi of this district, look into it at ?kxv, and have it corrected.

On Saturday one of the boats ou the Peck slip and Williamsburg ferry -the Niagara? ran down a email boat containing bvo boyn, wfca would unquestionably bare been drowned bad they not, fortunately for them, been good n.riotmeiu Had it been otherwise no erection or. the part of those in the ferry boat coald hare saved them, for there was not a Binglc boat on the bUameis deck to bo iwd in i-uch an emergency; and the boys had actually to be drawn on board by mean* of coats which the passengers extended to them. There are times when, on all the East river ferric, any collision would ine\ bably result in a fearful loss of life; for as many as Ave hundred people are often crowded into the boats; yet in none of them arc there the necessary applianoeH for rescuing any ono ftom tlx! water. In some, indeed, an old boat may be found on the haraicane deck, but in such a position that, even if she was seaworthy, which is doubtfal, she could not be made available in time. Qow it* this? The law requires that every ferry boat < shall be provided with a row boat, attached in 1 such a manner that it can be launched instant^ in , case of need; yet we will venture to say that on not a single ferry boat ou the two rivers is this f rule observed. On the 23d of July the Super in' Undent of Police, Mr. T&llmadgc, issued an or der on this matter, which was published in the Ui.kald of that date, in the following terms:?

I i Firkxikn's Fiubts.?In the Hkkaiji of yea > k luuj uii'i uui^ wc gave ac account m a fiftit between two lire companies, which took place under the window* of our office oa Saturday evening. Happily, It wm les? serious in Hi results than many previous affairs of the same kind, bot that does not lessen the disgrace which attaches to the transaction, and necewarOy to the whole Fire Department. It is much to be regretted that such things should occur to rtais the fair fame of a body so respectable and roxpcctod as a whole so devoted to their praiseworthy duties?so gallant, self-sacrificing and brave. There is an class in the community to which the public are so much indebted, nor whom they are more ready to honor. If a fireman falls, pub, lie ympathy Is poured out lavishly, without stint or bound* As the protectors of property and life?as the unpaid and willing defenders of the j city in case of riot or invasion, they are entitled to all respect and honor. Rot unless the recurrence of such scenes as that which was witnessed on Saturday evening be prevented, our citizens will cry out. as have the citizens of other cities, against the lire organization as a shame and a nuisance. The scenes enacted in Baltimore and Philadslnhia at various times. (wv.iallT in thr Uttrr city. have left a cloud upon the reputation of thn | Fire Department which it will take a Ion* time to remove. In Cincinnati, turbulence and rioilif among the fireman reached such a pitch, name four years ago, that peaceful people became die I gueted. and finally the volunteer force was dh' | band< d and a paid department establiabed in itn 1 i skatL ' Such muet lie the inevitable result in all caera ! when forbearance ie exhausted. In juatlce to oar | Fire Department it muet be aaid that It la leas ob' J noxious to censure on this eoore than that of 1 I other cities.
