Salmagundi is described a? a mixture of chopped meat, pickled herring", oil, onion?, vir-gw, Ac., and it is therefore, to a dish of pc iticai halir.figi ndi that we specially invite, r^ls morning, the attention of our readers. In the s'.me gi nerul chapter, in four distinct lette~p each from a different quarter and a different port ol politician, we present the views, opinions and calculation? of the managers of [ the republican party, the Breckinridge demo> 'atic party, the Bell and Everett Union party, I and the Douglas democtatic party. We project these different party view? in the <>rder of th? ,r .oparent strength, respectively before the couture as Presidential parties, and we apprehend that no intelligent person will dispute the correctness of our classification. 1 he -everal parties concerned, however, will discover, from this drst instalment, that our columns ore onen to all?Lincoln men. Kreckioridge men B<-11 men and Douglas men, so far a." tbey may be able (? chrow any additional light upon the broad and general question of this Presidential content. Thus, to intelligent correspondents of the four parties in the field we throw open our columns, in order that the independent American people, through the medium of this journal, at least, may huve the means and materials for a fair judgment between these lour contesting parties. The two most prominent features of the letters which we publish to-day are?first, the high confidence of the republicans in what they call the inevitable election of Lincoln: and. secondly, the self-evident necessity of a combination or co-operation among the three other parties to defeat him. Thus, while the friends of llreckinridge are coasting about for an arrangement whereby they may carry Pennsylvania. ..-kL,k ?!?? ? tk'ml will si a 1a main a*** 4Ka ol no WUIIU lur; "... _ ? -r .... toral vote necessary to elect their man. the party supporting John Boll aro ready to help to secure the lion's share of the vote ol Now York to Douglas, so as to throw the election into Congress, where they think Bell, in the House, may turn up our next President. It will be remembered that in 1836. when Martin Van Buren was the regular nominee of the democratic party, the odds and ends of the opposition put up three candidates?Harrison. Webster, and White, of Tennessee and that Van Buren beat them all. They were weakened by their divisions, 'while Van Buren was strengthened by the unity of his party. So now the divisions ot the odds and ends opposed to the republican party, although representing a large majority of the popular vote, are so much weakened by their three candidates I Breckinridge. Lfugjas ana wii mat ume*s (hey can all agree to pull together they must all ugrve to a common defeat. If the Douglas (action and the Breckinridge faction could only, in this State, be brought into the same frame of mind a* the Brook.* Brother*, of the firm of Bell and Everett, heaven and earth would be turned inside out if necessary to defeat Lincoln. But we fear that while Mr. Douglas goes forth on the holy mission of hunting down the Southern fire-caters. Mr. Biechinridge has been put on his track to hunt down the Little Giant. Still, we think thut at a half a loaf is better than no bread at all. the Douglas faction and the Breckinridge faction may l?e persuaded in these hard times to combine ci < n nnon the same Presidential electoral tick. t.

We have an interval yet of three months and a half to the Presidential election, and aitbia this time the defeat of Lincoln may \ cease to las a difficult enterprise, and become a j matter of manifest destiny. Tun l'ui'ii Crops?a Cnkkriit. l'nfHtu it. The reports of the crops from all quarter* of the country continue to be of the most cheerful character. It is evident that, unless some unforeseen and unusual disaster should occur between this and harvest time, we are about to have one of the most abundant years which has ever blessed this country. The cereal crops of the West promise to afford a very large yield, and the abundant return, it is bop. d. will enable that region of country to extricate itself completely from the financial difficulties with which the panic of 1K57 stir- | rounded it. and from which it has not sinc<* been wholly relieved. In plain word*, we hope this year of plenty will enable the West to pay its debt*. The coiton crop of the South for the past year has been a eery lucrative one. and the reports for this year indicate that it will not fall short of. if it does not exceed, the yield of 1S5!>. We hare received a first instalment of this year 's crop, in the shape of an excellent specimen of ew coiton from Texas. The prospects of a good crop i.i Great Btitn'm are gloomy enough, for. ow ing to the repeated violent storms and tains which havt occurred tl..riag the spring and earl/ summer, the probability L? that there aid not be na average yteid this yea:, in which esent we shall t br'd?-r marlcct foe oir nb.nd?nc* NRW YORK HERALD, 1 T*e Ka?wr? of Mr. PftU?e-VVh?t Omr 6*rtnun?t ohonld Do la Mevtco. We learn by telegraph that Mr MrLane our Minieter to Mexico, has arrived at Mobile, di riet from VeraCroz: but ae have no advices of the state of affair* in that republic, nor whether Mr. Mcl.ane intends to return to his pet \Wi heahculd return there we cannot conceive It is new much more than a year since V. J...I? ? "V T-:ui w UICAIVU. uiil liig W UWU MUir ui ?? labored assiduously to accomplish something toward* establishing a policy ia the relation." between the two countries that should be conducive to the highest interests of both. He has been untiring in hi." efforts. He has gone back and forth, between Washington and Vera Cruz. in season and out of seuson; he has consulted with the President and conferred with the Cabinet of Mexico; he has argued with United States Senators and Mexican leaders: and after all, when he has consummated a treaty calculated more than any other to give peace to Mexico and benefits to our commerce, and 6&fety and progress to that portion of our country contiguous to the Mexican republic, a vile spirit of faction and party greed consiga" it to the sleep of death in the Senatorial Committee tombs. If any policy could hare been wisely and skilfully devised to annul the influence of an American Minister abroad, and to overthrow the good he hud uchieved, it would have been that which has been pursued by the Senate of ' the United States towards the recent treaty with Mexico. Hope delayed has marked every step of that body in its consideration of that instrument, and finally, when party motives had prevailed over statesmanship und public spirit, and killed the treaty, good care was taken to prevent divulgation of the ignoble reason which bad triumphed over the national policy of the President, by a refusal to remove the seal of secresy from the debates. Why, then, should Mr. McLane be forced to return to Mexico? He has long since urged upou the consideration of the government the fact that the influence of our national name was diminished, if not destroyed, in Mexico, by the factious course of the Senate, and that even his personal influence there was endangered by the i murkt'ii dwenurte?v that hud been exhibited to wards the treaty be bud succeeded in negotiating. He has asked to be relieved from su?h an anomalous and useless position, over and over again, pointing out the evident fact that, as tbe moral force of his official representation bad been destroyed, by acts to which he was not a party and over which be had no control, tbe interests of the country and of our citizens in Mexico would be advanced by permitting him to withdraw and sending some new man to tbe scene of labor and of disappointment In this Mr. McLane is in the right. New combinations are now necessary in Mexico, and though our Minister sees the fact clearly, he feels that tbe Senate has wilfully destroyed his power to make them. The great objects to be attained have been clearly pointed out by him. and they may yet be achieved by a proper course of action. A friendly policy and a moral support to the liberal cause in that republic. which shall contribute to restore peace to its borders; tbe removal of present bars to Inuicr thp cstrthlUhment nf roonlur m?il mm. munications by steam between our ports and here; the opening of routes of ingress and egre?s for our rich mineral regions in Arizona, across her territory to the ports on the Gulf of California, and a reciprocity treaty for the exchange of products and mails along the extended boundary line between us and thut republic. Those are feasible things, and worth millions of dollars yearly to the industry and commerce of each country, and we commend to the government the common sense advice of llr. McLane to send some fresh mun to fini.-h the work he has so handsomely begun. Attractions ok the Metropolis?Inhkx ok Strangers.?The tide of summer travel has set towards the metropolis with extraordinary vigor; and while all of our own people who can arrange their business so as to make a tour to Kurope, cr fly away for a month or so to the springs, the ocean beach or mountain side, are getting away from town with the utmost alacrity; their places in Broadway, in the shops. in the theatres, in the Central Park, and in fact in all place* of public resort, are filled by persons to whom the gayeties of the great city are aa fresh and delightful aa they ht<.taatelepo and worn out to the tired hdbitu , who sigbs for the green fields, fresh air. bug sea bathing, mosquitoes and sand flies. The rush of strangers to New Vork is greater than ever before, and all through August the i cry will be that still they come. From the time when the Japanese arrived, a month ago, up to the present writing, we have had a continuous series of excitements?the Great Eastern and the Chicago Zouaves Wing just at this meuieut the chief attractions. As for the big ship, she is the magnet which draws the larger number of our count tv friends, who ar? never tired of examining her vast proportion*. The strangers' trade is a sort of monopoly for New York merchant*, and makes the retail trade lively all the year round. So we are glad to meet and greet them all, from the North. South. East and West - all except the country editors, who come here for a spree, and very otten get into the station house. They add insult to injury by going home and giving a description of their sprees as the habitual amusement of New Yorkers. Decidedly the countiy ediior* must behave better when in the metropolis. or be suppressed altogether. We ad* v ise the police to keep a sharp lookout for them. Tut P?

Ia another column we publish an article from the New York Tribune, which shows that the republican chiefs hare not got over their panic, and that they still shake and look aghast, and vociferate in the broken language of alarm and terror. The rumbling riund of he earthquake under their feet, prelitr'nary to the shock, chills their blood and ma' "? mem turn pale. Horace Greeley, of the 1 oune, though he does not drink anything stronger than water, reels to and fro like a drunken man, and is at bis wit's end. The immediate cause of his strange behavior is the apprehension of a combination between Dell and Douglas, by which the Southern States should be given to one and the Northern States to the other, or a sufficient number of them to defeat the election of Lincoln. He still J !>;u i?s upon combination against the republican j candidate, because it sticks in hL- stomach and he cannot digest it. lie is sorely troubled. W?* pity his sorrows, though we cannot say that it U ia our power to alleviate them. The bull of political revolution being once set ia motion, we cannot determine where it is goiug to stop Recently Greeley ot .'ted over the disruption and d.-j-v ion oi the demo era tic party. He muj sooa hart- to mourn over the defeat of the r j -ilcari*. He evidently forebodes some such disaster. lie well knows that his party ur" in ft iaority, and that it is impossible for th<-ui to tcceed. if all the conservative elements at the North unite against llieni. Any approach to such a comb-nation throws him into hysterics. The union of Bell and Douglas would blast his hopes, and if Breckinridge should become a member of the alliance Greeley would striko his colors at once, and give up the contest, like the coon which came down from the tall tree to save Captain Scott the trouble of fetching him down with his unerring rifle. In this country the reserve voters, numbering a million, always come out strong when their interests and their fears are appealed to by the signs of the times. On ordinary occasions they do not vote at all. But either should become President, he would uot be able to carry on the government, owing to the want of support in Congress, and that "such an administration would test the strength of any free government on earth." The lion. Mussu Greeley appears to be greatly alaimed about our political structure, being broken down, in the event of a combination and division of parties defeating his man. and placing some other candidate in the Presidential chair. The real cause of his alarm, however, is not that the government will be overthrown, but that republicanism will be laid low by the next shock of the revolutionary earthquake. The popular will which will bring any candidate to the bead of the government will know bow to sustain him against any dan .a a.L a a. vr .l a ,v.. jjiT uiuv uirj uriw, nvurr ai uir ^uiiu ui ai uit" South. and the tire-eaters and tbe nigger worshippers will tlnd themselves both extinguished t??g<ther by tbe common sense and tbe patriotism of the people. A Sptj:\i>id Yacht Rack ln Pko*pk<t. We are glad to announce that there is a actuation ahead for all people who enjoy nautical sp u ta (and who does not*) in the forthcoming race between the sloops Julia and Rebec**, which has been arranged to take plae.* oa the second day of August.

At thi* sen?on there is, almost invariably, a fre?h southerly breere. and if the rile should hold on the day of the race, there will be plenty of sport, Mid a wet jacket or two for some of the yachtsmen. Tie race will be one of the finest nautical contests that Ima ever taken place here. The yachts are both noted for speed; they are of nearly the same tonnage, and well matched in every way. The Julia stands the acknowledged qiiefa of the yacht squadron. She has been in ihe water six or seven years, and has never yet been beaten in any race. Modelled by the late George Steer;, she i?, as a matter of course, a m ulct of symmetry and beauty. Among yachts she holds the position of the l>elle of the season at Saratoga or Newport, and the compliments which she receives are infinitely more sincere than those whimpered into the velvet ear of Aruminta as she sip# hvgeiua draughts at Congress Spring, or awims along the corrid t* of the Ocean Hoit?e. The Rebec ra which eppears as the antagonist of the J il# i n 'hi* pcc e'e a. ha? b < I her v.cci\'*oi and h . in a revolutionary crisis like this their last vote will be polled. Greeley is aware of this, and hence his tears and gfroans. If the conservatives of all sectiou* hare any practical sense they will take a lesson horn the enemy, and give him good reason for wetting and v iiing and gnashing of teeth What odds to his troubles is the appfcie.ni1 > i that not only will the conservatives combine, but that the republicans will be split by the entering wedge inserted by Wendell Philups. Subjoined to the article from the Tribune will be found a letter of this uncompromising brave, in reply to the feeble comments and special pleading of Greeley, who attempted to sustain Lincoln under the damaging fire of a division of his own rebellious army. The Tribune has evidently made matters worse by bringing out another shot from th * big gun of tKa Rnninn *?*?Ks?1a in f)ia mr /vU unik canister and grape. We perceive that the Tribune was silenced yesterday, and declined to accept the challenge of Phillips to insert his letter and reply to it. The Boston chief exposes the inconsistency and insincerity of Honest Abe" with telling effect He arrives at the conclude a, from the evidence which he produces, that the rail splitter is a "slave hound," and that Horace Greeley, who suppoi him. is another. Lincoln, therefore, will never do for the "red" section of the republican army. Such letters as that of Phillips will damage him seriously, and the split in the party will widen every day, as the day of election approaches and the fight waxes hot. It is no wonder, then-fore, th it Greeley should be ahmied. and that he should labor to show that neither Pouglas nor Bell has any strength, and that, if rt verws M well, and and uodctbteJly find in tiila race bet tcugneat unUguoiht The affair v,i:ibe, undoubtedly, the moet exciting event o' tl.e kind eince the fumoui Co wet- regatta, ea the America carried off the cup from the Yacht Squadron.

The princely gift by the Japanese Envoys to the police seems to be received, on all hand#, with the proper spirit. So far as the apportionment of the sum placed in Mr. Belmont's huads is concerned, towerer. it seems particularly absurd that any part of it Bhould be given to the Philadelphia police. And we protest against any such action in the premises, for the reasons, first, that the Philadelphia police altogether refused or neglected to secure the comfort of iK/i InnonorA in Pliit Ail/ilnlit t 014V\i*ki* n4 iko limn iuv ?/ojiaurcc iu a ruiu i n? iu< iiuu of their reception or during their stay at the Continental E< Id; ar d secondly. because, if tie Philadelphia police ure to %e rewarded in the same proportion for doing nothing as the New York officers wLo did their duty and more, there is no longer any stimulus for the latter nor any adequate punishment for the m:-cor\duct of the former. If we examine the facts in the case, as regards our first poiut, we shall find that the Philadelphia police have always been notoriously inefficient. Philadelphia is a quiet, aleepy sort of place; it gives to the stranger the idea of u large manufacturing village in a state of profound repose. One can fancy, w'thout a very violent exercise of the imagination, that he hears the beetle's drowsy hum in Chestnut street, and persons of a volatile turn of mind ure irresistibly impelled to chase butterflies in the Exchange. When the Philadelphia comes to New York his ear? are deafened by the roar of a great city. His head aches from the nobe. the bustle, the excitement of the immense tide of humanity which hurries him. he hardly knows whither; like the Latin poet, he sighs in vain for the quiet bliss of his rural home. This delightful state of things is occasionally disturbed by a sensation. Sometimes the pleasurable thrill is caused by the opening of a new dry goods shop; sometimes by a fireman's fight, or an election row, and once in a long while by some such novel sight as that wj 'ch was afforded by the entrit of the JapaTKon tKo tvAAnla at a art/Id awul-n Tl?nn ? ?mvm kMv j/* imv n??v wnu uv? A jicu the good old Quakers abut up their houses and lock their plate chests; then the Philadelphia rowdy came forth in all his glory; then the police went to sleep more resolutely than ever; then ruffianism became rampant, and the control of the city was given up to the mob. Such was the case with the Japanese reception. The Ambassadors were dragged at a very slow pace over three miles of the almost interminable streets of the city. The police were totally powerless against the mob. which behaved most disgracefully, insulting and annoying the Ambuv-tidors in every possible way. So marked was the behavior of the crowd that the Japanese, although they could not ucderita.-.d the meaning of the exclamuth is i \ . ? > tvr very plainly that the r: ' i . .a ;h? people newest to " *r.- * tljecn During theetay of ttic ?: <J Ud Hotel, their quarters ?*-e not prvper'y guarded, and strangers were permitted to tone themselves into the private apartments of the Prince* And it has been universally Jt*cl;ue<l that the conduct of the police of Philadelphia. throughout the stay of the Japanese in that city, was a disgrace to the country. The mob took their tone, of course, from the , police. That is the case everywhere. In Paris one finds a polite police, ruling a polite crowd with civil phrases and gentle remonstrances. In London the mob is oot so easily handled; but the police are civil and patient, and Unpeople always listen to reason. In New York the police improve every duy. The constant accessions to our population of criminals and disorderly persons, who flee to the metropolis r ^ iruiu iurrj, 11 p.n is ui iiuuj uiurr .xvuudb ui uur own counti/, make the work of the police here harder than it is anywhere else in the world, and the men are obliged to use more severity than a Philadelphia Quaker would approve of. The mob. however. stands in awe of the police, and the latter have thereby a greater power than the club or fce revolver could give them. Therefore, while the Japanese were guarded by the New York police, they were as safe from intrusion and annoyance as if they had been in their ow n Jeddo palaces. The city guests' suffered some" from the Aldermen, who got up a ball nomiually for the Embassy, but really for the scum of the city's population. We can make a police, however, much more easily than we can reform the Aldermen. They say. in \ England, that it requires three generation* to | make a gentleman, but no one could give even an approximate idea of bow long it would take to polish an Alderman into anything like good breeding, or to instil an idea of his duty into tbe head of a Philadelphia policeman. They are even more obtuse than the Philadelphia editor?. We have made the^e strictures upon the Philadelphia police in all sorioii>n?-?. They are especially needed at this time, in view of the approaching ri-it of J'ue Piiuie of Wales, who will n.'i** throv ill Philuilelolii.i <>n Ui* Washington lbe Japanese knew but little of what wa* going uu about them: but the Prince and the noblemen accompanying him will thoroughly understand the conduct of the Philadelphia mob. which may be, if unreal: allied by the police. as insulting to th<? heir apparent of Victoria as to the Ambassador* of tin 't ycoon. Under all the-e circumstance* tome j uverf I corrective should be applied to the police of the (junker l it). They need a stimulus tnuie* thing t<t wake them up tn it reali/Jng wwe of their duty.

Thus we shall have official and duly authenticated accci.aU of how the Prince fulfilled daiiy the different important functions of life Tub Wstzmno Puvcts.?ULtll within the last few days there hae been a lamer table dearth of cc mpaay at the fashionable watering places. In no former year, not even after th? last panic, have there been so few visiters. The landlords have been in despair at their pros prvva, iui w jm vucjr uu iucv u^yi? w uvi lu vu?5 course of a few week*; and the? bad arrived at their harvest time in the harrowing position of Sifter Anne, without seeing anybody coating. Several cause* have contributed to this state of thing# In the fir-t place. New York has been the great centre of attraction for pleasure seekers up to the present time. The visit of the Japanese, the arrival of the tenth wonder of the world?the Great Eastern?the triumphal entry of the distinguished ltgion which acquired African tactics in Chicago, and the advent of the Benicia Boy, have all had their share in concentrating upon our city the tide of summer travel, while they have also had tha effect of keeping our own population at home. Add to these inducements th? fact that until within the last day or two the temperature u* town hw> been delightfully pleasant; that we bu\ e hud our country cousins to chaperon and cntettain, and that we could not possibly mk? the Aldermen's Japanese court ball, the gr< at Hicks nautical drama, and the Heeuae ovation, and it will be readily understood why the w atering place" have missed their accustomed guests up to this late period. There are other influences which have no doubt equally operated to diminish the number of visiters to our fashionable summer resorts. The travel to Kurope this season is unprecedentedly I urge, each steamer taking out as many passenger* of the tourist cluss as it can possibly accommodate. The visit of the Prince of Wales to Canada of course retains at home ail those who usually comedown from the Prortnnna fn S\ftt*? r?rro Vo?rnnrt XhftfAn anH place?. The Canadians are so brimfull of loyalty at the pysent moment, and feel so big at the honor which their sovereign has conferred upon them, that they have no time for either pleasure or business. Then, again, the tide of fashionable inclination has altered somewhat in regard to what are called the first clam watering places. People who cccupy comfortable bouses in town are beginning to discover that there is no pleasure in being shut up in huge country caravansaries, where people eat badly, sleep worse, and divide their couches with a multitude of uapleasant companions, to say nothing of the shameless way in which they are fleeced for tln-ir miserable accommodations. Instead of going to such places, persons of means are now very generally adopting the European plan of hiring cottages in pleasant country spots, where they can enjoy rural advantages or sea bathing wi^iout being compelled to sacrifice for them ' aii the domestic comforts to which they have been accustomed. At Newport, which is favorably situated for such a mode of living, the number of new villas and cottages which have been built to gratify this taste since last season 1 have absorbed a large amount of capital, and cannot fail to do serious injury to the hotels. There is but one way in which landlords at | those places can resuscitate the popularity of their establishments, and that is by paying greater attention to the comfort of their guests 1 and lowering their charges If they do ' not ghe heed to this co,.a?el they may rest u- -red that thcjr all! soon find their houses dOFerterl. The fa e Hit it a for summer travel to Knrope and the britiah Province* are new so (Treat that unless the inducements of greater economy and comlnrt -ire held out to tourists at the watering places, tbev will prefer taking either of the former trip*. Let hotel keepers then take warning in time, unless they want to tind their apprehensions of the pre-cnt season converted into realities. We understand that within the last few da/a there has been a marked increase in the arrivals at all our fashionable summer resorts. Mill it is not sufficiently large to justify the expectation that the season will be an average one.. Too much time has been already lost, and too many counteracting influences are at work, . | to enable the hotel keeper* to count upon their usual proni.?
