Aud it always happens tout in the first one or two local elections sue* ceeding the Presidential contest the popular vote is runarkably light. This is especially the case i, in those elections in wticn no direct national is- f t sues are before the people. Our forthcoming ^ election, in this view, is purely local, as neither a 1 04 , United States Senator nor members of Congress la are involved in it. We think it, therefore, high- T' )f ly probable that the popular vote of the State this fall will be reduced to something near tae vote of 1855, or say 150 000 less than the \ ote ot " last November. We also undertake to say that 11 1 two-thirds ot this reduction will fall upon the re- *( 0 publican party, the overwhelming iufiaence of 01 c Fremont's popularity, and the pressure of "bleed- u' ing Kansas" being token away, on the one hand while the odium of this last corrupt Seward Le- w 1 pislatuie will be introduced ?s tne dead weight on the other. n' ( Next, with regard to the democratic rote. Outside of this city and its suburb.-, last fall the de- w mocracy made no serious effort because th-y <0 , had not the remotest hope to carry the State for '? ? Mr. Buchanan. But now they are furnished with j the b?st weapons for assuming the offensive in ' 3 these aforesaid abominable legislative acts o ut-urpupon and corruption. Through a judicious 11 h management of their cards, and by active and et 0 united exertions throughout the State, the demo- ?.' crats can not only maintain the vote cast tor n y ti Mr. Buchanan, but increase it by tnouaauds of p ? lt accessions both from the republican and the Know Nothing camp*. c * The dcmociaU united have called a Slat" Con- 0 >f ventiou to meet at Syracuse on the 10th of Sep- ft * (ember; the Seward republicans will aw-emble at a >f the same place In convention on the 23d. la the r medfitime, the remains of the late Know Nothing v party are to he the subject of special consider a- M [. . tion before a State Council appointed to meet in , Brooklyn on the 23th inst. which is near at u | hand. This Council will probably ap- b r point a State Convention, to come ofT * I- ' at Syracuse a few dajs after the rcoubli- 11 * '? y c?ae skill have nominated their Slate ticket '* und proclaimed their platform. But ae it is evi-' ^ r* deat that the Know Nothing leader* are in the n I mark? t, there may poaaibly be an extraordinary c '' ambassador or two at the democratic Convention, 11 with overtures of some practical import, in view n of the commou desideratum of au anti-Se ward t- Legislature. ,1 We can hardly euppo><\ after their di astroun " J ami financially exhausting opt rations ot lust ' yi ax, that the American party of New York arc t!

The government bjinj t Pi kin will not hear of the Iosb; the boats Tl ill not even be missed ; the dead men will oaly agen lake room for others. For the peculiarity of stati Ihtna?and that which makes a war with the hu)(6e so different Irom any other war--is the thosi ibubms nutntKT of the people and the exhaust- rent *s resources cf the country. An army of a tion lillion Chinese, cut off to the last man, would not pfcou npair the strength ot the government or necee- the t tate a change of policy : and, as to gunboats wuJ by, China could afford to lose as many every then torning us the English have just destroyed m ht]m lis naval engagement, and never feel it.

For, ^ f cm the very same reason which impairs the efct oi British victories, if the Chinese have mrage and skill, a war with them becomes a jj, eiy desperate matter indeed. If they could lrn out as brave soldiers as those which have 0^0 n-t sailed from England ; and were they officered. pTac p they may be, by graduates of the Russian lilitiuy schools, China would at once become the tjje < >remost belligerent Power in the world. She was, uld send into the field and replace at intervals pUy a army greater than the whole of the Rossiao nglish. French, Sardinian and Turkish armies verfl to fought at Sebastopol: and as all war, in the p7ac nguuge of Napoleon, is merely the science of |tue( imbeis, and the gods are always on the side of ft rt? e largest battalions, she would of course be ' p0rti ithout an equal in the world. It is the tendency I ^ ^ that state of things which looks so disquieting r the English. Tt Sober second thought?on the files brought prop the last Indian mail?has satisfied even the tu,c( ost English of the English journals that the war ^ a i India is going to be no child's play.
