CORNER OF TTTTRTEENTn BTRFET AND BROAD WAY.?fxiiroania Mbmagbiiib. lew York, Thursday* Jams %H, 1WO. Thr Kewa. The Senate transacted no business of importance In open session yesterday. In executive action the Mevican treaty was postponed till the first Monday in December. The treaty with Spain, for the settlement of claims between the two countries. wa* rejected, the republicans opposing the clau.-e providing for payment for the A mis tad negroes. Several treatim with Indian tribes were ratified. The appointment of Mr. W. Y. Ru-.sell, as Navy Agent at New York, In place of George N. Sanders, was confirmed, as was also that of Colonel Wright, as Superintendent of the Springfield Armory. The nomination of lieutenant Celunel Joseph E. Johnston, of the Plrst regiment of cavalry, to the post of Quartermaster General of the Army, was rent to the Senate, when it was laid a -ide for further consideration. The Senate will probaby adjourn as aoou an it acte upon this* appointment. The atramship Northern Light arrived at thi* port yesterday from A spin wall, with the Pacific maili and $I,j4I,5H0 in treasure. The news from California has been mainly anticipated by the overland mail. The letter of onr correspondent at San Franciaco, published in to-day'* paper, give* the details of the advice* from California, Oregon, Washington Territory and British Columbia. The Northern Light brought no new* from or Central America, with the exception of New Granada in progressing slowly. General Uosqnera had declared the State of Cauca independent, and threatens to march on the capital with the force he ha- at hi* disposal, some 5,000 men. From Mexico we learn, through onr Maxatlan correspondence, that the English had not only blockaded the port of San Bias, but had landed troops and kept posses-ion of the town for about a month. On the 2?th ult. the blockade was raised and the town evacuated by the troops. The cause is aaid to have been the imprisonment of the British Consul by the authorities for smuggling. Advices from Jamaica to the 8th mst. hare been received. The want of rain was still felt. The anniversary of the great earthquake of June 7, 1G92, was observed at a holiday by the churches of all denomination*. The volnnteer movement was progressing successfully. Typhoid fever was pretalent in Kingston and the neighborhood, and the weather was oppressively warm. We have files of Bermuda papers to tho linh inst. The corporation of Hamilton had placed the new hotel at the dispoeul of the Governor for the accommodation of the Prince of Wales, *honld bis Royal Highneaa honor Bermuda with a visit. Tho weather for the la?t month had Iwen cool and pleasant and there had been a considerable fall of rain, and up to tha linh tho summer boat had not aet in. Tbc Central Park Investigating Committee held their eighth .-r.-sion yesteidsy. The main feature of the day waa the testimony of Frederick Law Ohnstend, about the change that has been made in the pi in aad the general work on the Park. He testified that most of the changes had been made by the Board principally from hi* suggestion, and that it was done to adapt the Park to the wanta of the public. A republican mass meeting was held last evening in the City Hall Park, Brooklyn, for the pnrpoM of ratifying the action of tho Chicago Convention in nominating Abraham IJncoln, of Illinois, for President. and Hannibal Hamlin, of Maine, for Tic# President. There waa a large concourse of people present, and it wna found necesaary to divide tho netting and to draw off some of the speakers to address the people from the republic** wigwam la Fblloa utieet. Both meeting* were nurked with a more than uanal decree of order and good honor. It wa? eleven o'clock before the proceeding* ter minuted, a report of which will be found in another column. The Exriee ComiaWioaer* met yesterday aid created fifteen licenses, at the general charge of *30 for each. They have now held thirty eight of the Ml y meeting* which the law require* to be held annually. The CuinmiaOiiWfra of KmigraUon foiled to hare a quorum present at their meeting yesterday, and conaeqoontly no bmfneaa of an unamal nature was acted upon. The weekly atatemeat submitted to the Board Miowed the number of emigrants landed here during the past week to be 3,643, which swell* the total number of arrtrala for the present year to 47,130. The commutation balance is bow 034,434. The special committee of the Board of Educatioo appoieted to inrestigat* the reaaoao why the toacbem of the Fourth ward arhoola were dismissed, held their find meetiag yesterday, and heard a good deal of ertdenee oa both aMen of the qufstiea, oa sbrirect of which we publish ia our report of their proceedings.

Not ements Among tht uriumr* r ) n Looking over the Presidential field the other c day, und at the relative .strength and positions g of the contending forces, we were irresistibly 1 drawn to these conclusion*- first, that the elec- tl torul vote of New York would decide the Pre- a sidential election: and secondly, that as there I exists n heavy popular majority in this State opposed to the republicans, it is quite probable J that a combination electoral ticket, on the part * of the supporters of Bell, Douglas and Breckfn- c ridge, would take away the vote of New York g from Lincoln, and thus defeat him. s It now appears that some of the active leaders jof the democracy have seized upon this idea, <] und have been for a day or two actively at w ork t to reduce it to a practical experiment between c the two factions of their own party. Thus, it 1 appears that Mayor Wood, who was on Tues- i day in Washington, comparing notes with the t PresidtHd. and with Vice President Breckinridge i and Mr. Douglas, respectively. In behalf of a sys- < tem of joint stock electoral tickets, was yesterday i in this city (having travelled all night to be | in time), engaged in an earnest consultation ' with Dean Richmond, that profound nnd long t beaded old quack doctor of the Albany Re- < gency. * . i Of the results of these patriotic endeavors of t our indefatigable Mayor to stop tho leaks in the ] old broken bucked hulk of the forlorn democracy we are uot officially informed. The case, we i understand, however, pronounced somewhat ( It) no! />aiilj!/1 oiuk/1 tiHowl \r Knwoloao . uvr|?iUIV| ?? UVI VVIIOIUV 1 VU UUVHJ UV|/V IVTOJ I and that further efforts arc to be made to get the wreck off the bar before extreme low tide, when, if not removed, the heavy surf of black republicanism will certainly tear her all to pieces. In other words. Mayor Wood has taken hold of this idea of a joint stock Douglas and Breckinridge ticket, like a man of whom a phrenologist would say, his faith will remove mountains, und his motto Is''Never say died' I>et him proceed; and when he shnll have consummated a junction between the Breckinridge and Douglas faction?, it will be comparatively , easy work to take the Bell party into the firm. Meantime our republican cotcmpor&ries are taking the ulHrm. The Courier and Enquirer, in a serious tone of warning to the Lincoln party, devotes a long leading editorial to the threatened danger of this "more than probable" combination electoral ticket between the demoacknowledges that N<*w York Is to be the battle ground against the republicans, and that a fusion ticket of the opposing forces would place Lincoln's election in great jeopardy. The Tribune, on the other hund, affects the treatment of this fusion ticket as a very good joke. I>o push it along, gentlemen?we will help yon; an) thing for a little fun. Our proposition of a fusion ticket, and its probable results, are thus set down by the Tribune:? Whole number of electoral rotes .IS?to be apportioned on llie baai- of tlie popular rote of the several factions for tbetr common ticket, as follows ? If the Dw.gla* vote be 175.000 30 If the Bre< kinrnifc 100.000 12 If the Hell and Kverctt 80,000 11 But the mutual hostilities among those par ties arc considered so intense as to render it absolutely impossible even for the lion tamer, Van Ambnrg, or the bone tamer, Rarer, to bring them together in the same enclosure. Still, many stranger things in politics than this suggested coalition have happened, and, in view of the spoils, our hungry politicians of all stripes may be caged together as readily as Barnum's happy family of eagles and rabbits, owls and Guinea pigs, cats, rats and monkeys. There Is. however, a dark aide to the picture, Sanders, our late Wavy Agent, and the fnithftil Snnrbo Penza to Mr. Douglas, has been beheaded. Ominous execution, this. None could be more so. Who next? Tammany Hall, with her banner of Douglas and Johnson hung on her battlements, turns pale even in the Coal Hole at this startling news. Rumor says, too. that the Cabinet at Washington were engaged all day yesterday and all night greasing the guillotine; that the (bustituftou newspaper, by authority, has thrown out the flag of Breckinridge and Lane to the breeze, and that this ticket or the headsman's basket Is to be the sole alternative of every democrat kn < uirtI fur tita rmintr* at llu> araonaa nf Ika federal treasury. On the other side, it appear* that the Douglas National Committee at Washington. August Belmont in the chair, hare reaolred that In each State mean res be taken to secure an electoral ticket, "pledged to the unequivocal rapport of the nominees of the National Democratic Convention, Stephen A. Douglas and H. V. Johnson." The object of this policy is declared to lie, "to preserve the democratic party intact, nguinst open as well as secret enemies of the constitution and the Union." All these things, thrown into the general ac count, do not promise a very large success to the labor of lore undertaken by Mayor Wood. He may fail to bring about the coalition which be neeks. The republicans may thus ride roughshod oTer and trample down the disbanded democracy as a corps of heavy drngroons would disperse an undisciplined mob;undae have ao objection to this rough prwedlng. If H be more Important to the wrangling democratic factions to wreak their vengeance against each other than to combine against the common enemy, even so let it be. We are In the midst of a revolution, a great and far reaching revolution; we are for this revolution. If It be necessary to Its progress that the broken fragments of the rotten democracy shall be ground to powder, as between the upper and the nether millstone, even so let it be. The next step will be the violent dispersion of the republicans over the spoils.and then we ahall hare a new order of things 'JEW YORK HERALD, T1 fh* Central Park lumtlgatlon nmd the Disappointed Architect*, Contractor* and Jobber*. The committee appointed by the Legislature to nvestigat.1 the management of the Central Park lave nop been in ecssioo eight day*. mid have xnmmsd twenty-eight witness, without susaining any of the numerous charge* that have >een brought against the Commissioner". When n application was made, at the last Legislature. for authority to raise additional fhnds for he completion of the Park, a squad of inalontente posted off to Albany, and were xceedingly busy in the lobby charging the lommivnoners with doing everything but what hey should do, as well as wilfully squnnering the money placed in their hands, 'hey succeeded, by their plausible stories, in elaying tbe passage of the bill, and would proably have defeated it. and thus retarded the rogress of that noble work, had it not been or the almost unanimous opinion-) of the res? of tbe city in favor of its parage. Fear ig that they w ould not obtain the additional and? required, the Commissioner-* proposed to ompromise the matter by inviting an investiation during the recess of the Legislature, "hi- proposition was accepted, the approprialon parsed, and the committee appointed who re now discharging their duty at the Astor louae. At the second meeting of the committee, Mr. amc> Hogg, formerly a Commissioner, preented eighteen specific charges against the Central Park managers, every one of vhich, if attained. would have furnished sufficient reaon for the removal of the Commissioners, A esolution was also adopted at that raeeeting lirecting the Secretary to notify Mr. Dillon hat they were ready to hear the proof if certain charges that he made in Albany, dr. Dillon immediately declined, pleading i vant of time to attend to it. lie has bus left the labor of prosing his assertions n the hands of Mr. Hogg, and three or four lisappointod and busines seeking architects, abo were anxiou? to inform the public that they considered themselves ' expert-." rhe testimony, thus far. plainly proves that these gentlemen have undertaken u task that they are unable to accomplish. They are daily lot only removing suspicion from the CoinmK doners. but proving tnat iiioir own action was prompted by a mortified and vindictive spirit. The course taken bv those who have been ussailing the Commissioners, is pretty nearly Ihe same that was adopted by Chevalier Forney and his political associates against President Buchanan, in first applying for office, and. on being refused for incompetency, in immediately asserting that such and such situations hud been offered them as bribe'. Thus the statement of Mr. Hogg, that he was offered a situation with the salary of $2,500 per annum if he would not make charges before the Legislature, ia disproved by the fact shown by his own hand-' writing, that he offered to remain at home if the Commissioners would pledge themselves to appoint him, which they refused to do. Mr. Daniels ienounces the general plan of the Park, because it is not like the unsuccessful plua presented by him. Mi'. Hughes, whose plan was ilso rejected, stated under oath that he volunteered his testimony because his plan had been refused. Mr. Warner swears that a large amount at sand fe wa*i#d on the dock, and it L shown that the only sand that has been lost was uu? were arrested. Mr. Vivian comes forward to prore that the blacksmith! are in the habit of making tools out of the steel belonging to the Park and selling them; but upon cross-exmiuation it appears that the only instance he hud iny knowledge of was that in which he was himself the culpable party, and for which he was discharged. Mr. Olmsta-od, the architect-in-chief. waa on the itund three hours yesterday, and was thoroughly questioned, both in regard to the plan and the reasons for the departure from the original design. From his testimony the fact is made tnown that all the changes that have been made were for the purpose of adapting the Park to ihe requirements) of the public, and the multiludea of carriages, equestrians and pedestrians hat dally visit it. He abo testifies that the pre>ent plan, although cos ting about four millioos, ivill be more economical in the end than would lie original design, and that It will be better suited to the objects for which the Park is being onstructed. This is the opinion that has all he time been entertained by the public at arge? no one but a set of disappointed place lookers making any objections. The public s ill have the Tark and care nothing about the "oat. cnl,) (bat it be suited to their wants when completed. Tbe investigation, however, is not without ts fruits. Whilst those making the charges .re unable to sustain them, they are proving, rem the mouths of their own witnesses, hat the management of the Park has fallen nto the hands of as good a set of men as New fork affords, and that if the grumblers had unco obtained control, there would have been 10 end to the peculation that would have been <an iril on at the nuhlir evnense. The vknln thing resolves itself simply la to the wailing* ind repining* of a few disappointed office teekers and contractors, because the Comnbeioneis will not allow them to plunder the public. From all appearance thg Senatorial Committee pre conducting the investigation aith great fairness to both sides. We trust that their report will be draw a up in the same spirit of impartiality. The Concuss or 8ottui?ns.?' All the a orld and the reet of mankind" are agog about the mysterious meeting of the crowned heads of Europe at Baden. They cannot tell what it ncanv The moat conspicuous figure In the ?icture is the Emperor of the French. To 'very mind it will occur to ask:-What is his text mora on the political chessboard o( Euro* >ean politics? What combination is be now brming with which to startle the world ? What tew allies is he about to draw into his designs? rbe Germans were alarmed at his projects, and tcciune incensed against him, as in his march if conquest he approached their frontier. As he preliminary step to soma ulterior design, he leslres to soothe and quiet their fears?to become Wends with them, as be did with England, t has been stated that the Prince of Prowls iddrrwed letter to Prince Albert, reflecting >n the course of Louis Napoleon, and that the after is rery desirous to know lt? exact conrots, with a tlew, perhaps, to remove the inrd feeling entertained of him. and to break p aoy holy alliance which msv be In ontetiplatlon again t his dynasty, liowerer his m?7 be, I4 is certain that the vbit of the BURSDAY, JUh-E 1860 Emperor of the French to .a* time, it uot without an object. There w' son|e~ thing in the wind, and a short f>eriod w ill JH.?~ bablj bring forth developement* of the policy I of Napoleon that will astonish both the Old World and the New. The Great Eautern. After many delays In her date of sailing from Southampton, the mammoth steamship Great Eastern left that port on the 16th inst. for New York. Her arrival at this port has been hourly expected since the evening of Tuesday, the 26th. upon the presumption that she would moke the voyage in ten days. According'' m rate of sailing on the last trial trip?of which we give a highly interesting ace" v, our special reporter to-day?she n' uii in average speed of ubout thirt""" ,es a. our, or three hundred and tweive miles a day. The distance from Southampton to New York being about o.itM) mile-, she migut have compassed that space within ten days at her full rate of speed. But the probability is that she is proceeding slowly and cautiously; possibly taking a southerly course to avoid the ice; or it may be that she is subjected to some delay from the newness of her ponderous machinery, or her foul bottom, wipi several feet of grass and weeds attached. Her arrival, however, cannot be far distant; and perhaps before these pages have reached all our readers she may be floating in the waters of New York bay. The advent of the Great Ea?tern, after a safe journey across the Atlantic, may be looked upon as the crowning triumph of ocean steam navigation. No craft of such enormous dimensions and wonderful power has ever parsed from jmo port to another in the history of maritime adventure; and yet we may look upon her?majestic nnd astounding as her proportion are?but as the pioneer of a class of steam-hips which are one day destined to dot the ocean, and bind the furthermost parts of the earth together. The Hudson river possesses a historic interest in connection with steam navigation. Its shores witnessed the eurly efforts of Robert Fulton's ambition, and its waters receh ed the first steamship that ever crossed the Atlantic from the Old World; but with the arrival of the Great Eastern the brightest chapter In the history of our lovely river Is filled up. From all quarters of the republic and the neighboring British provinces thousands will batten to bobolu tnis wonder ot marine arcbltecture?this mighty tribute of the victory of mind over that inert matter which Providence has subjected to human energy and human genius. The Gake or the Alba> v Rkoexct.?In the late democratic conventions the cunning of. the Albany Regency has apparently overreached itself, and Richmond's prestige for sagacity is gone. Ilis object, as declared by himself, in persisting in a course which has brought two democratic candidates for President into the field, is to maintain his ascendancy in the State of New York, and win the local elections by the war cry of the Douglas. But he must be blind indeed who does not see that the same cause which w ill defeat the democracy in the Presidential contest will defeat it in the State elections. In every county and tow n, from Governor and Congressman.down to constable, there will be two democratic tickets for every office? * ? - a ?1? ot 4M.IU1*' the victory belongs to the black "f<fpublicons. and to the victors belong the spoils. But it is highly probable there is on understanding with the Seward and Weed faction that the Regency and their Swiss troops will participate in the plunder thrown into the hands of the republican party by the sinister action of Richmond, Cugger, Cusddy, Ludlow and the rest. Then the business arrangement with Slawart, of Michigan, and others, by which the directors of the Illinois and the Michigan railroads, in the event of the New York delegation voting for Douglas, were to play into the hands of Dean Richmond and the other owners of the New York Central, to the loss and detriment of the Erie Railroad, involves a consideration of no small moment to the clique who, through their railroad interest, have managed to control the politics of the State for many years. In this concern Weed & Co. are partners. Hence the game of the Regency, if they could not get their own man. Seymour, nominated by some trick, was to break up the party and give the election to their friends the republicans. The Hovbton Movkxvnt ui this Eunas State.?The friends of Sam Houston seem encouraged by the spilt In the democratic ranks, and they are organising their party as rapidly as possible. The executive committee has called a State convention, to meet at Schenectady on the 18th of next month, to ?. a!-*--a nm uuiuiu?H7 m uviriuu rirviuiui utMV. 1 Be Houston convention will be the earliest in the Held, and with the old hero of San Jacinto we shall have five candidate* in the field. Well, the more the merrier. It ia an ill wind that blow* nobody good, and with half a . dozen candidate* ia the field there will be three time* aa many salute* to be fired, bills to be printed and banner* to be painted. Then the increased demand for stump orators will develop the national love for speech making to a wonderful extent, and everybody will be able to work off his political bile, no as to have things clean, healthy and comfortable by the time Congress meet*. So go ahead with the candidates. The political field, like the Broadway stage*. Is never Ml. Jump in gentlemen; there is room for half a donen more. Remember the new rule, however, and have your small change ready, so that you amy pas* up your fare before you enter for the race. A Fuout I>dttkil\cb or OrrKiox.?Governor Johnson, in his speech accepting the nomination for the Vice Presidency, gave us some important information. Among other things, he stated that the national democratic party vm in "peculiar condition," and the country wan, on account of the peculiar condition of the party, in imminent danger of ruin; that o?r miration, in point of fcet, depended upon the national democratic party, and the election of Pougiaa and Johnaon. This remark in more to be noted for its utter fallacy than its extreme modesty. We beliere that the country will manage to get along very comfortably without the national democratic or any other party. It is Uie beet thing that could happen to the conntry, this war among the factions, for when rogues fall out honest men get their dnea. If every political orgs ni rati on In the country should be swept away to-morrow, we should still caivy on the business of government; and It would go hard if we could not manage nutter? as well as they nre conducted now.

( U?a Taiata Agirnm. ^ We learn ttom Washington that the Spanish <. army, having returned, covered with mud and c ctfery, from Morocco, is about to be sent to t Me.rico t0 *** affeirs right in that republic, and that the Cabinet of Madrid are about to bring tbe United to their senses, and bridle our progressive policy. It is quite time thAt our pending questions ' and anomalous relations J*lth Spain were taken up and settled; and as Congress has so pertinaciously refused to do its duty in this respect, we are glad that tbe Spanish government has determined to take them up. and force our government to face tbe music. There are mutual claims which should no longer remain unadjusted. We should pay Spain for the Amistad negroes stolen by our abolitionists twenty-five years ago; and if we have made a mistake in n capturing a Spanish filibuster expedition lately ? in the Mexican waters, we should at once ac- d knowledge It and make "the amende honorable p y itli due reparation to the injured Dons. tl We have some little claims on our part to p have settled, and tbe time is propitious for their ^ examination. Our citizens have not yet been h paid for the hundreds of thousands of extra b duties they were plundered of by faithless * changes in the Cuban tariff, after the hurricane e of 1844; our insulted Consuls have not yet ? been apologized for?Mr. Cross imprisoned at c Matanzas, Mr. Sewall driven from St. Jugo, Mr. * West Imprisoned and plundered at Sagua, Mr. r Thompson insulted and compelled to hide the c American aim.- at the same place; the Georginnn and Susan Loud, American ships.'cap-. ? ttired at C'ontoy, in the waters of Mexico, and t condemned flagitiously; our mail steamships s fired into und seized; and a long list of indivi- 11 dual citizens arrested, fined, maltreated, plun- ? dered. nnd driven from their innocent and , peaceful occupations In Cltba. through the igno- s ranee and ntulice of ignorant officials. And t more than all. the neglect by Spain of all the * relations of good neighborhood, in keeping open the African slave mart iu Cuba, in violation ot her plighted faith, r her public treaties, the spirit of the age. and * the highest Interests of the American commitni- * ties she got ems. ller subjects, after making 0 their nefarious arrangements with the local authorities in Cuba, come here, and availing o themselves of the freedom of our ports, and our 1 jealous regard for the immunity of our flag upon the sea, combine with the evil disposed, ( and prostitute our flag and laws to their slave ( trade operations. r It is quite time that our Spanish accounts ' were looked into, and Spain does right in bring- t ing them np. We hope she will kick Congress into ? a sense of national dignity, and bare the items ? settled. We are obliged to keep an expensive fleet on the coasts of Africa and Cuba solely ^ through her acts; for if there were no African j slave mart in Cuba there would be no African i slave traders on the ocean. Mr. Buchanan has repeatedly called the attention of Congress to the disgraceful state of our relations with Spain; , Mr. Slidell has endeavored to plant the germ of g o Cuba policy in our government with the < Thirty Million bill; our citisens have repre- ( sented, our diplomatic representatives have 1 protested, and our press has thundered, thus far In vain.

It seems?from the fact that t the battle field where Ormsby's men were so i cut up two weeks before was visited, and twenty ' bodies interred with military honors?the coun- % try was quiet enough, so far as the Indians are , concerned. We arc told that "another battle i is expected;" but we opine that the Indians will not be the first to offer it. o As we hnve before stated, the difficulty was c commenced by the whites, one of whom shot the 1 bead man of the Pah Utes in cold blood and r without provocation. Subsequently some of * the Pah Uteo made a descent upon a white set- a Uement, end killed one or two persons. When the party which was organised for the purpose of arresting the offending Indians reached Pyre- 1 mid Lake, thoj descried nn Indian in the front f) with a white flag. One Elliott, a white man, ? bad a telescopic rifle, with which he shot the m truce offering Indian dead. Hereupon the com- a msnder of the whites, who numbered one ban- 1 dred men, ordered a charge, to which order only e ihirtv of the men retmnnded? the other* ran awnj. The result of the battle wu most disos- t Irons to the whites, their captain and some twenty-fire others being killed. The Indians h had no firearm*, but fought with poisoned , arrows. The little party of whitea behaved a moat gallantly. Ormxhy, the commander, had a two horses shot under him, and fell mortally J wounded and pierced with aereral arrows. It * see ma a great pity that to much pluck should hare been thrown away upon so bad a cause? a quarrel in which our people, ocoording to their own accounts, were clearly In the wrong n from the beginning to the end. We are very ? glad to see that the affair is now in the hands y of the United States Army oAeere, who will t act, we doubt not. with firmness and disarotion, ? bringing this latest and shabbiest of our Indian * affairs to a speedy and honorable close.
