Their pfcf'uaving been fl'.led by a wt < ! tradiug office teeleri, spoilsmen and rowdies, we are not surprised at the bethgurett demonstrations that transptrci at their conventions and have since followed in their wake It is, bowever, only by a ItnowleJge of the secrct operations I the dtticrent cliques, their objects and aims, that the public can fully understand who control (heir parti'*. of well us appreciate the motives under which the jvoliticauis act. Tbe IiKiutU' ba? already given many of llie Mmersaults of the managers of the Albany Regency. I will cow furnish another chapter devoted totbetrn ks and traps of the managing politicians. V..,? hia llnnc.p Wnrnr Jims trailKferr) J M .Ziirl Ball lu the Douglas democracy, a great deal has been -aid about hie movements by portion or tbe metropolitan pre-**, but no one I n.? given a full sketch of tbe part that ut stayed in making the nominations, which, although be did not occupy a teat in either convention, was no unimportant part in the programme. These facts have one by nc cone to the knowledge or your correspondent, und m ? .11 nuy drew them up Tor the readers or the IHrald. Prior to his departure for Charleston, he and his eut re wing of the democratic party, or at least the managers, pursued a uou cotutn ttal course, as Ur as their preference *>r candidates was concerned. Even at the np]>er at the AsUr House before they left, not a word Cm aped the lips 1 Mayor Wood in regard to his choice for the Presidential ron :r.ati"n. From the conversation that did transpire, a person i.ot in the secret would have considered th'- Mo. /art democracy for anybody and everybody, and no one m farticular, a.eitUr would they have susjiectel that at cliort was being made to get one of the party that was am king the wine at that table upon the ticket ! be vnimated at Cliarl< ston for the Vice Presidency, and that lit accomplishment of that object was really th? game What was be ng played, but that such was the case the wq'iei will show. The outside trip to Charleston was not marked with anything peculiar in the political line; having the venael t" themselves there was no opjiortunity for political specu?uiol or harga.) ng The tlrst stratagem that we aid him at uork utiou of any moment was at CbuiestOB, cheek by Jowl ' with til' representatives ol the cotton Jr Half Stale*. an I laboring, as al! suppled, to obtain bis admission t> the Convention. 3up|?osii:. everything in bis own uau Is. fce was somewhat surprised al tbe dctisiou of Judge 'sin in behalf T the Uougla* democracy in refusing fc:m tekets of admission, showing conclusively that IS'an Sichtmnd and his confidence band had outtlgured him a tlx cutset.

Here lay the secret f aM their lurnT movements, furnishing an explana t ? c for the'r silet-v upon Uie Pn 1 den I .?! auestton. This la-t reqwst prov?a to be one step t?> much, aul on that fcw chances for a seat in the Convention wi re lost, ou'y stven or eight States voting for his nlni>*i?ii h Ihe wrangle that took plaee over the platf rm every tnu.g pointed to a rupture lung before it took place, an ' U-e S'eeSEi n tliat ttnally transpired, U not done under the direct counsel of " Mayor Wood, at least hat ts> sympathies and best wishes, as was publicly *? ? oust rated at the tlrst m?et:ng of tlie seoedera TbsjUiitatSi Andrew s Hall, and irganized by placing Mr Preston, of South Carolina, In the chair.

His tirst move, however, was to visit the W : tc House; hul whatever was the nature of Ira communication with the President, nothing cane of it Wedt;Osduy morning found him back in the city of Now York. That day vraa made memorable by a fnenily meet |r| b?W W king of the Albany Biflimj and fmb nun do Wood, who had, for a long time, occupied a belligerent attitude toward each other The mewing w?s an important one. and why should it not be where the ]>arty, yea, tli< spoil*, were at stake. With but oue ? ituew present the business or the hour was reached. There in the quiet room arrangements were made lor the ransfer of a body of men, yes,a warrantee deed given nd witnessed, handing over to Dean Richmond the fac lot; n the State known an the national democracy, Mozart Ha.1 and ull that follow in its wake, as well as all other organizations and clubs that have heretofore opposed the Albany Kegt rev making a clean sweep of them all, in consideration of this great transfer of chattels which was mm!i' without any compunctions of conscience, or any oul'tf in regard to the title, or the right to hand them all vi r to Douglas. The Mayor was to receive the influence f th. Regency to secure his nomination for Governor; f;. : ng in that, he should be placed at the head of theclecU'rul ticket ii->oue of the electors for the State at large, gulf by side Dean Richmond; and last, though perhaps not lian. the recognition by the Regency of the li lends of Wood, they to be received in full communiou, a. ttiough they had alwayH been faithful adherents to the articles of covenant of that organizatiou. An attempt was also in.uie to bring the AVuil into tho bargain, Richmond said that he would go it blind and ;if < i vi' f-'0,000, and, la bis refined and aristocratic lu.Tuagc, "Not one damn cent more." No agreement Wa made with this, an < ne lien Wood beld something of an tereet in thin establishment, and it was necessary ft him to be consulted. Here the caucus adjourned, with Uit expression of friendly coinrliments all around, tho Daily Aens, in the meantime, on the fenco, having two heads editorially, ready to swear hard or soft, as the case might he Tim offor ofi'JO.OOO by Richmond in behalf of the <">tis for that sheet is said to have Bince been o:t-et by an offer ol #30,000 by the hards. It is said that Ben Wood, who lioids m name the Wooden interest in that uetab'iirhmeiit, is dec.dedly liard, preferring the W0.000 to i lie J.' Trior to his Honor's leaving for this city to make terms with the powers here, ho requested perfect silenco on the Iia tol his organ, and, like Joshua of old, that his sun (g .ti)s should stand still, viz: that John A. tirecn.

Stephen I'. Russel, John A. Green and Gideon J. Tucker, Informing thi'm that Mr. Wood desired to see ib- in at his ofl,re at once. Messrs. Russet and Green obeyed the summons, aud proceeded to tl?e Mayor'! prtvale oiiice. t |?>n their arrival they were informed by his Houor that they had fume in an opportune moment, stating also that ho returned from Washington that morning, where h'' had been for the purpose of seeing Preside! t ftuchaiiun in regard to their sup|>orling Hrockinrldge. 'I offered," sayR the Mayor, " to guarantee tho support el the national democracy of the State to lireokln rW e aud lane, and to insure that ticket 40,000 votes in i lb< city of New Vork, provided tkat the President would give lam the Post OtUcc i>?trouage and one third of the other government offices in New York." " To which Mr. , Buchanan replied," continued the Mayor,41 that he would , not make a slaughter house out of his New Yolk offices." We cannot make u>y terms with the Beccders, says Mr. Woo,1, but iKiuglas has promised to recognise us. and I have ton eluded satisfactory arrangements with Mr Richmond to day, in which I have promised that Mozart lla.ll shall gofer Douglas. Mr. Rush I th. n said that he thought if they pursued Dial c<" it would show that they were simply after ili< spoils and not fighting for principles. "If the bargain Mint you have made with r?can Richmond compromises principles, then 1 cannot be considered us a parly to tho bargain, and most re spectfully decline having anything to do with it. After tcuie further general conversation relative to the {ueition of the several candidates, Messrs Russel and Gr n then left the room. Messrs. Green am! Tucker soon after met, and proceeded together U> the Mayor's office. Mr. Wood repealed to Mr. Tucki r the story of h.s visit to Washington, and his bar- ! gain wilh Richmond, but did nut in tnc leant allude to the terms of imp afwmfU with the latter. Says Mr Tucker, "What are the terms of the bargain, Mayor Mayor Wood replied. ' Xo matter about that: the arratigecient is >>crftectly satisfactory to myself, and 1 hare pro\ ided for a. or my friend!?you tn particular.'' Mr. Tu ker then sa'id he could not give his consent %ny such arrangement, and j>oremptorily declined being coc-, '.ered in that bargain. Mayor Wood replied, ' We shall theu have to part. let us thake hamis and part as friends!" Mr. Tucker replied, " Wo will part. Mayor, but dispense v. 1th the t eremony of shaking hands.''

Many friends of Mr. Seward think that he repudiated the supposed "firm'' by the scorn of Bllence, but it is now in my power?without giving the cxact words of the original? to Ftatc its entire substance. A n ugh draft or copy of the letter was shown to me to day; and, with the aid of a keen memory, you may rely oa the following as being almost a verbatim reproduction. The letter is dated Aubun, somewhere about the 24th November, and begins by apologizing for the delay in answering Greeley's letter, dated the lltb ?f the same month. Mr. Seward expla us that by some carelessness on the part of his householi tbo letter was not forwarded to him, and that he only received It on his return home, the evening before his ansver, lie then says:? Your letter is a prickly letter?a very porcupine of a letter?bristling with sharp points ail over, so that 1 scarce know how to handle it, and cannot handle it at all without pain. I have a sort of sad hope tin the exhaustion of your noble labors in the campagn which has Just closed may be in great part respond blc for the sharpness uf your censures, which 1 am sfcll not prepared to pronounce w holly unjust. But on one point I must hasten to clear myself. At the time when you describe yourself as sutieriug ariual want at Albany, I bait no idea :hat you were or couM bo so circumstanced. If you bad then let mi1 know your condition it should at once hate been remedied. But is it quite just to blame me to day for an solely tbe result of four own over xensltlvc ualure- You were entitled to better terms than yon bad, and you should have bad them had I known your necessities. As to your right to withdraw f rom the firm of "Seward, Weed 4: tirecltythat ?f course cannot bo questioned, however much ycur ktOttff partners may regret it. I think, too, that whethe- with vis in name or not we shall always have the benefit of your services. For this tirm was it>cori>oratcd under divine charter, if at all, for high and holy purpose*. It .'ias so far successfully fulfilled a high and lofty mission-, and while tbe nature of Horace Gcontinues what 1 have known it, he cannot?let him try ever so hard?dissever the bonds of principle which unite bira to one action mid ultimate design. As to many of the cWges in your letter, so far as they apply to nic personal y, they are absolutely new to me. My position at Wash ngton has compelled me to resign even such slight inleretU or part a* I at ono time took in local management, nor am 1 at this moment aware of wbat steps are being taken by Mr. Weed to secure my reelection to tbe Senato, though assured that my interests are safe iu bis baud*. You know, that in the machinery or party, It is necessary that come one bead should be in command, and that place m our combination has devolved on Weed. That be may not always have filled It wisely is quite possible; but that he acted < a his best jurgment I ieel suie. A8 HtllMWi ipi>MIOf you to hitn, but u I would have spoken ha.' you been o\erheuring me, ao, ku"w inR our relations, y< i cauaot expect tc- u> speak of bmi to 3 ou otherwiie than t* of a friend ta whom 1 stand under obligations not easy U> be ?pokeu. <*f mai y details menlio'u(.ii in your letter I must still Plead ignorance, confessing myself partly in fault, perl. ips. lur not having taken more int- rect in things inte rotiog tn sen But mr th? i;-4iie!4 MHef. : t hinance. of which you complain. I had no control v?liatever. I am sure il you think this |iart of your letter over i.^ain. von will confetw having done to nie some injt.*.,ce. Hut the main dlfllculty and fountain of all tlie apparent lieglecl of which you coiiiplain, or ratbtr which fvu now es|K?e. arose from a misconception on my Side oi o ir |><*ttions. To ine It ban always .seemed that Horace Greeley, editor, wag tbe main prop uf the firm, md lur from ever dreaming that he could need any aid row me, 1 always looked to him for thai support which ihe more powerful brother extends to the weaker. This - the exact fountain of our mutual misunderstanding, nd 1 frankly confess. as I deeply regret, nr. share in it. Ait to yet another j>art of jour fetter?that .u which you S]>eak of a nomination personally ottensiv aud injurious to you?I can only repeal what I have already said ?l>out my non interference in local matters: and try as fou may. my friend, you can l ,er force me. by any taunt or misconception, to write your honored name on the yami page with that of either Webb or Raymond. We think alike about people of this claw, and the vewa put forward by me in our last conversation at Washington as to their cbaructers and tbe injuries they have done to v,s are those to which 1 still adhere. As to the Arm of Reward, Weed fc t.reeley, I think, on a f r review oi the whole matter, that you will come ij the conclusion that you hare not been without an immortal reward for your service* in the business of that |}rm. Von have gained name aad lame, power aud position?your sentiments finding an echo tn a million hearts, and your history as a reformer being sure to go down t<> an admiring i?aterity. 1 know you may think it cool of me to thus refer you to future generations for a reward which it mav an: ear to you 1 have nbun.ed while sull ou thin side of Jordan but such in the Immutable law of compensation, and nature nsfgiis din*rent reward* to different d?-gr>-et anl varletWt of service.

This result is in' ov liable if the present divisions are not healed The zeal manifested by the papers in the interest of Douglas offers but little hope of reconciliation, for it is evidently dictated by a full conviction that they are acting in con' formity with the popular sentiment of their respective districts. Indeed, they are but following up the policy inaugurated by the delegates from time-1 districts who refused to secede from the Douglas Convention in Baltimore. And this policy was pursued In obedience to the will of their constituents, made known through the medium of formal meetings held in several, if not all, the lountii* of their districts. These districts may, thereore be regarded as fully committed to Douglas?irrevo iui'ij i"?>, u* nuuiy urmiy Deueve. The foreshadow ings from this state of things are omi nous of dire consequences to the democratic party; for what hope is there for it if Virginia give* way? This bad prosj>ect ban no terror, it Deem*, for the Are eaters or dwuiitniigti. On the contrary, I it-am they exult 111 the hope that out of this chaos something will come to necessitate a report to their principle* by the South in general. If my information be correct, this feeling is already very generally indulged in throughout the cotton Suites; and the ellorts of the prominent stump speakers in these State*, while ostensibly directed to promote the election of Breckinridge and Iat.o, will be in fact applied to engender still stronger hostilities between both sections of tin I'nlou. Such is the opinion of a gentleman who is well iioAled upon the public tentiment of the .South. There Is very little doubt but that influences will be developed within the next six months which will test severely the conservatism and Union loving spirit of the South. The evils foreshadowed in this connection will do more to producc harmony among the democracy of the border slave States than any other Influence I know of. Believe me that, so far as regards these states, the public plunder has not that cohesive i?wer now which was once attributed to it. In the presence of danger so imminent at that which is now foreshadowed, considerations of sffloe and emoluments must give way to motive! of a more exalted and patriotic character. 1 am persuaded that the efforts which Virginia is putting forward to effect a reconciliation ol the democracy are lnlliienced solely by a conviction that in preserving the liarmony of the democratic party she is doing the best service for perpetuatmg the Union. No wonder taat tnis 11 so, for no other State would si.fler so much flrnm the evils which disunion would entail. It is this conviction thai renders any movement with such a tendency g> very unpopular in th.1 State, Mnl that actuates, to a great extent, the efforts which arc now being made to hannouize the demoera y. A Mate Convention of the party oners the*only hope to effect this, and a cjiII fur it will accordingly be issued by the State Executive Committee which meets here on the 10th Inst. Many seriously question the probability of accomplishing the desired object, in view of the determined attitude assumed by the "Tenth Legion" in favor of [kiuglae. Tho "Tenth Legiou" district combines more than half the democratic majority of the State. The recording of its vote for IVmglaF, with many other scattering votes which he would be certain to get in the State it a reconciliation in not effected, would secure the electoral vote of Virginia to Bell and Kverctt. It is intnnatci that the '-Tenth I/yt >u'' will insist upon a scale vote in the Convention, so a? t.? secure U> herself a representation proportioned to her <Wmocratic str? ngth II'this policy succeeds, and a similar ruleis applied to other districts in the Slate wherein IXmglas Is underplotd to have some strength, it is not at all improbable that the democratic vote of the Stute may be carried for IVmglas. Tins system or scale voting, however, is not cuftomary in Virginia; and. with theargu mcniof dem<<cratlc usage on the side of the Breckinridge men, I should not wonder if the "Tenth Legiou'' wou d be made to suxumb. If she does, it will be after a hard struggle and with bitter protests against her being overslaughed by anti-democratic districts The Old Dominion is certainly verging upon a great crisis in |>arty politics; and >r the democracy come out of it unscathed it will be by skilf il engineering. The unit rule, which she has to pertinaciously adhered to in the past, and her proverbial attachment lo long established party usages, will furnish a basis of argument to the majority which will probably save the deialtracy in the Slate. I learn thsrrbe triendsof Breckinridge are somewhat disappointed at the postponement of the ratification meeting appo.ntcd to come on at .Norfolk on the 21 inst. Tins disappointment proceeds from at: idea that the presentation of ?>ov Wise's views in advance of a State Convention, would excrcisc a salutary intlueuce upon the adherents ?f 1 "ouglas, among w hom are some of his warmest friends. TJi' knowledge, lowever, lhat the Governor is In favor of Breckinridge. wt:l probably have some effect In winning them over. There are general apprehensions here that l.iucolu will be elected, and the filorl w ill be to forcc the election luto the House of Kcprescutal ives. In 11 .at event I.ine's chances arc deemeu best, the idea being thai the H i use will fail to elect before the 4th of March, and that an election by tbe Senate from amoug the candidates for the Vice 1 "residency w ill follow. In such a contingency, Ijuie, it t> presumed, would bo the choice. I'AVIS ANI> torn; ON ?IlilillllKH. sfux iu-d or the 11 ok. Jtcrr. day is am? tub iio.v. howell cobb in w ashl.nurok.

(Applause.) MISCELLANEOUS POLITICAL INTELLIGENCE. Ton* of ths Soctherx Pub*.?The Nicholasville (Kentucky) Democrat, published in Mr. Breckinridge's district, hoists the flag of Douglas and Johnson. The editor say si? It has ever been, and is now, oar fixed and determined purpose to support the man Cor I'resident who fairly and justly obtained the nomination While wo admire and love Mr. Breckinridge, we cannot forsake the modicum of nationality that yet remains to the democracy to promote his interest to the detriment of that party whose recent rupture has cast such a gloom over our land and nation. We love the Union. We will never knowingly lake a position which will array one section of the Union against another. Mr. Breckinridge did not receive the vote of Kentucky in convention, and be will not receive it iu November next. If he accepts the nomination from the handftil of delegates who seceded at Baltimore, it will militate against the success of Mr. Douglas while it insures his own overwhelming defeat. At a timo like the present, when the greatest, harmony is needed to insure success, It is suicidal to attempt a victory with a divide! front. Our banner is now unfurled to the breeze, with the honored names of Stephen A. Douglas, of Illinois, for President, aud Herscbel V. Johnson, for Vice Prisident, Inscribed upon Its national folds. Under this banner wo expect to achieve a triumphant and glorious victory, to the utter dismay and confusion of all the fragments of sectional parties against which the pure and unlimited democracy may have to toteud. Mr Bradley T. Johnson, the senior editor of the Maryland Vnxon. of Frederick city, announced last week that his connection with the Union wus terminated, and that he meant to support Breckinridge and Lane, but in the absence of the Junior editor ho did not feel Justified In placing the paper In positive position. Mr. Cole has sine* returned, and rumor bath it that the Union will advocate Douglas and Johnson. The Nashville Union and American states as follows'.*? We have received sixteen democratic papers published in tins State since the nominations were tnado, and thirteen of these have run up the Breckinridge aud Lano ticket, two have indicated a preference for Douglas, and one has not taken position. There are still t?>n democra tic (tape in this stale that have issued no paper that has been received at tbis ofltce since the action of the Convention, but we think all these, with perhaps a single exception, will support the Breckinridge ticket. The Carroll County (Hd.) Democrat Is thoroughly perplexed as to which faction of the democracy it should cling to. It defines its position thus:? Inasmuch as by a concatenation of unfortunate circumstances the democratic party Is temporarily divided, and two candidates thrust upon them, let each one exercise his own judgment, and accord the same privilego to bis brother and let us not fall out if we can help it. The l.ynchburg (Va.) Keyitilican says:? The Rockingham hajutcr. Valley Democrat and Staunton 1'iiiilmUor. have each hoisted the name of Judge iK/ugluis lor the l*re?td?ncy. These are the three leading democratic papers in the Tenth legion, and nay be tak-'u at: an index ot popular opiui?n in that important quarter 11 the t late. Without the vote of the Tenth Legion do ?

Whatever others may do, we unfurl their banner to the breese, with the Arm conviction that the beet interest* of ttie country and the sal v alum of the South are tnyotved in their election.

Tlicve have been tlatly and persist* utly deuied to Uer by the North, and the result of tliis contest will determine whether ber people shall herealter r< mam aa equals in the luion or assert their independence oat of it. The Salem (Va.) Rtguttr professes to bate had a partiality for Iwuflap, which has changed, however, into a feeling of indignation and a determination to support the seceders' nomination, which it aunouncett follows, after deploring tbe dissolution ot the democratic parly ?

The Monmouth Democrat is equally forcible In its advocacy of the compromise electoral ticket To this plan we cannot perceive that reasonable objection can be made; and the persons who do or may object place themselves in a false position, as democrats, of preferring the election of a black republican abolitionist to n democratic, a conservative candidate for the Presidency.
