F., yesterday, wc have news from Europe to the 11th inst.. one week later than the accounts previously received. The news is unimportant. The Prince of Wales sailed from Plymouth on the morning of the 10th inst., in the Hero, for Canada. Nothing new had transpired with regard to Garibaldi's movements. Reports of^ighting near Messina had been circulated, but had not been confirmed. The royalist forces for the defence of Messina numbered 20,000 men. It was considered certain that all the great European Pow ers had agreed to the proposed conference. and that it would be held ut Paris in the month of October. France had notified Turkey that the European Powers would interfere to stop the massacre of Christians in Ryria. In I/Hidon two additional failures in the leather trade were reported. Consols on the 11th were quoted at P3 a !>3J for money, and !KJJ a 03^ (or account. In the Liverpool markets cotton was active at (steady pi ices, while breadstufls and provisions were dull. The Connaoght brings later advices from India, China. Australia and New Zealand, but they contain nothing of importance. By the arrival of the overland mail we have news from San Francisco to the 'J0th ult.. and later advices from Oregon and British Columbia. The new* from California is unimportant. St. John's day w as celebrated by the Masonic fraternity of San Francisco with appropiiate ceremonies. The corner atone of a new Masonic hall, which is to cost lltiC,000, was laid, and more than ten thousand Masons marched in procession through the streets. The exports from San Francisco for the past six months show an increase of $1,200.000 as compared with the corresponding period last year, and the statistics of travel show an increase of thirteen thousand to the population during the -ame period. The trips ol the pony expresa were to be renamed in the first week of July. The mining account* from Canton Valley continued highly larorablc. The advices from Oregon concede the election of the democratic rnndidate to Congress, but represented that the legislature will be so composed a* to prevent the election of Cnitcd States Senators, unless the democrats compromise their differences. The mining news from British Columbia is encouraging. The war between the Indian tribe* rages tatiously, and the goeerntnent did not evince the slightest disposition to interfere in their quarrel*. The steamship I>o Soto, from New Orleans 12th and Havana 16th in*t., arrived at thi* port jesterday. The westher at New Orleans wn? unusually hot, but the city continued healthy, not A single ca?e of yellow fever having occurred. Havana wa* al-o healthy, much more so than for some year* pM-t. Business was dull at Havana, except the sugar market, which was tolerably active. There had been a large number of arrivals, yet freights were active. Our correspondent at Ponce, Porto Rico, writing on the 2d iust., say*:?The stock of sngar and molasses of the old crop is nearly run out. but the new one will be right on its heels, and io tbi* district the yield will exceed an average. The prospects from all parts of the island are most encouraging, as the whole is under successful cultivation from the abundance of slave labor. Within the past fifteen months about nine hundred slavea 1 Lave been imported from Africa, via Cuba, whose ! Annaninn triil i-.rn aftr >1 t t(in narti.tilar . I of the master*. The latter give them comparalively comfortable dwelling, with ground sufficient to raise vegetable* and feed poultry, and a moderate but cnconrnefng pay for extra labor, which create* peace and contentment. The weather here is rather dry, but ?till favorable. The Chicago Zouavea gave an exhibition drill laat night at the Academy of Muaic, before an audience of five thoaanod people, which crowded that immense edifice from parquette to amphitheatre. The audience wa* composed of our tirat clasa citizen*, among them many military men. The Zouavea acquitted them* Ives in anch a manner a* to elicit the unauimou* applause of thoae preaent. The aflair waa well managed, under the direction of the office re of th? Twelfth regiment, and proved a perfect success. Accounts from liuatan state that Gen. Walker left that plare on the '.'Tth alt., it was supposed for Central Araerba. Honduras waa to take posses ion of the Bay Islands on the H)th ult., and it wa* aid the people would resist the transfer with iorce of atma. At the meeting ot the Commissioners of Charities and Correction yesterday, the Committee of the Whole reported that circulars were Issued to several builders inviting (hem to estimate on plans and specification* for the erection of a house of recreation for the boy* on Kendall's Uland. They also . reported in favor of reducing the salaries of the Deputy Resident Physician* in the Institutions from $Tlf. to 1216, and that in future no refreshments gUss let JtiUaitU 10 m VUC lifting lift UaUU tiouH. Tlit report recommended that hereafter a" vt jHTnonn having friends or acquaintances/hwiwce- jjj rated in the city prison* whom they are" desirous gj ot vimting must apply at the office of the Com- ^ inisaioners, to prevent persona from holding promts- ^ cuous intercourse with prisoners. The report was adopted, and the Commissioners adjourned. The number in the institution* now is 7,321, an increase |D of til for the past week; the number admitted in 1(1 that time being 1J68, while those discharged, ft transferred, or who died, numbered 1,897. The examination of Frederic Hoffman, the allodged defaulting Secretary of the Pacific Mail dj steamship Company, held before Justice Connolly, ic :it the Jefferson Market Police Court, was con- tb luded yesterday morning. The prisoner was com- ai mitted to await trial on four distinct and separate ^ charges?two for illegal issue of stock and two for forgery. The amount of bail was fixed at $22,000, to reduce which an application will be made to the Supremo Court. A report of the final examination 01 will be found in another column. w b, An exciting gome of base ball took place yesterday in Brooklyn, between the Kxcclsior Club, of South Brooklyn, and the Atlantic Club, of Bed- m lord. Long Island. The play was witnessed by tb about four thousand spectators. The game termi- ol uated in favor of tho Excelsior Club by twenty- gt three rnns to four, a result altogether unexpected, fcj The contest lasted three hours and twelve minutes. A sweepstakes for four oared boats came off yes- ^ terdny afternoon at Quarantine. The entries were the Charles McCoy, of New York; Stranger, of Poughlteepsto, and Judgo Yoorhees, of Williamsburg. The purse was >:t00, and was won by the 01 Stranger, the Mr Coy coming in second. Distance rowed about three miles. Time 19 minutes 26 la aeconds. hi The sales of cotton yesterday embraced about 1,500 a! bales, a considerable portion of which was taken by w spinneia, in lots; the prices continued to be quite irregu p| tar, especially for middling aud lower qualities; it is difficult to give a reliable rauge of prices: middling uplands al and Florida middlings we quote at 10'4'c. a loj^c. Flour 01 wa= heavy and Irregular, but more active; the purchases If were cbielly ou domestic account and for export, hi .Southern flour was heavy, while sales were to a ^ fair extent. New wheat was ou the increase, while y i the market for old wai lefts buoyant, but with tolerably* free sales, at rates given in another v column. Corn was in good supply, aud prices d less buoyant, while sales were pretty active. Among the g sales was a lot of handsome Southern white at 84c., and a of Western yellow at 65c. a 66c., and choice Western mixed at 62c. Fork was tlrm for mess, with sales of new ^ at 810 87 >, a >10 60, and new prime at >14 25. Sugars ^ were active and firm, with sales of &,500 bhds, .1,200 p bbls. aud 55 bhds. melado, al prices given in another col- b umn. Coflee was quite Arm, with sales of government ^ .lava at 10>?c., and 400 do. Maracaibo at 14 ^'c. Freights f were heavy and firmer, especially for Liverpool, while engagemeuti were moderate. ai ' ??? Ki Tlie Firat Erho from the Popular Heart? vi The Tm? Opealag of the tampalga. nr The great gathering or the mercantile and industrial classes of New York at the Breckin- ? ridge and Lane ratification meeting on Wednesday night was the first breaking ground? j the first spadefull thrown with a will by the people?in the tharp, clear and defined political contest which is to elect the President and F decide the policy of the federal government so for the next four years. p Two montha ago the old regime of the demo- r cracy was brought to trial at Charleston by its *'! own partisans. After a long discussion the ? ' court adjourned to Baltimore, and there it was n formally condemned and executed, with general consent, on the night of the 2lid of June. Wf Everywhere the people rejoiced in their new 1 freedom. The tyranny and corruption of the on whole party organization had become un- ** bearable, and when it was dead the feeling of relief was universal. Only the professional politicians were perplexed and anxious. They saw the system by which they ^ had so long secured for themselves the ar public spoils broken and shattered to 0(J pieces, and in their despair some clung to the j ( larger fragments, claiming that that was the ^ true ark, while others endeavored to patch up ^ the remnants and make a semblance of the old VT , n<> concern. i'ew pians anu programme* were also brought forward by hop?ful politicians, and during the past month every one has won- ' dered at the apathy of the people in such a lal momentous crisis. tit But it was not apathy that existed. The fa people saw the hollowness of the Bell move- ri< ment, notwithstanding the hopeful faces of his u[ political managers. They perceived the ab- ce straetions and fallacies of the Douglas scheme, tei notwithstanding the confident tone of his ad- th herents. Houston's name failed to make an eh echo, and the Gerrit Smith side movement was de comprehended. Instinctively the people felt gr that in none of these was there the vitality and ta strength necessary to encounter and defeat the St black danger in which Lincoln and bis destntc- W tive allies and followers threatened to involve m< the highest and dearest interests of all. And N< therefore not a hand was lifted, not a sign went in forth, to show bow the popular heart listed, bl Yet it thrills before the common danger of a 1 black republican triumph, and is ready and tc w illing for the contest. bti The Breckinridge and Lane ratification meet- wi incr has awakened the first eeho I'mm the tinnn. th lar heart, and given to the whole country the th< key note for the national bugles, and the true va plan for the opening campaign. The contest is fn one of conservative resistance to the revolu- pe tionary and destructive schemes of the black republican fanatics and demagcgues. and it is el< in the central, commercial, manufacturing and th< mining States that the people can be rallied. un and are ready to rally, upon the constitutional rig principles involved. New York has given the lirst sign. Our commercial and industrial *ti classes have shown that in Breckinridge and tic Lane they have found the true representative tb< men of the constitutional principles which form th the sonl of the coming contest, and that their cr names have awakened the only real and living Bt enthusiasm which has shown itself in the on popular revolution through which we are co now passing. This feeling will find its Ai echo among the same classes and in* pe to rests in Tennsylvania and New Jersey, ri< and there the issue lies. The battle of fu IfM is to be repeated, but on a grander Si scale, and in a more distinct and clearly defined of form. It is not In New York, but in the central and commercial States on the Southern border, Br that the thickest of the fight will rage, and the tb< battle be lost or won. tic These facts will soon be patent to the whole tb< conntiy, and men everywhere will begin to lit range ibemeelves on the only living principle# su which enter into the issues ot the day.

OLK IlutBOK DhtBNCES AND VOU.NTH.KR SOLticRir.?One of the most interesting as well as oportant displays by our volunteer soldiery lat ever took place in New York was the rtillery drill of the Chty Guard with the barftte guns, at Fort Hamilton, on Wednesday, id great credit is due to Captain Mansfield ovell, not alone for conceiving and carrying it tbe idea of familiarizing our citizen soldiers Ub the use of tbe guns on the forts in the bar[>r, but for the admirable training to which he is brought tbe company under bis comand. Captain Lovell was formerly an officer of ie United States Army, in the artillery service which he displayed a remarkable efficiency, id it is-highly creditable in him to devote his lowledge and experience to the task of lucating our volunteers as artillerists?a ranch of the military profession upon which e would have to rely more tban any other in me of war for the defence of our splendid etropolis. It is unnecessary to say that the regur army is wholly incompetent in point of umbers to man the forts of New York harbor lone. Moreover, it is scattered on the frontier, here its services will be always required more r less. The artillery service is very small, ad, such as it is, the men are trained to the use f light batteries, and would have much to un'arn and to learn before they could tight these eavy guns with effect. Our forts, then, must epend for their garrisons upon the militia and olunteers, and hence it becomes a matter of ital importance that they should be properly rilled in the service of casemate and barbette tins. It will be seen by tbe following table that force of over five thousand men would be reuired to garrison the defences of the hui bor, as iey now stand, and the figures below, we think, resent a very low estimate of the numer necessary to work the thirteen hunred guns mounted on the different >rts. The annexed table shows the number ad location of our harbor defences, the numpr of guns, the men required for their serce, and the estimated cost of the works and mament:?

The Democracy oi the Empire Citt.?'The Le powerful demonstration of the conservare democracy of the city of New York in vor of the ticket and platform of the BreckinJge wing of the party throws a flood of light >on this Presidential contest. We thus perive that the solid democratic commercial forest* of New York are true to their sympaies with the South; and so. we doubt not. we all find the name substantial elements of the mocratic party in every commercial centre, eat and small, of the Northern States. Susined by the unbroken column of the Southern ates, backed up by the administration at < ashington. and supported by the solid cotni'ti ial and financial classes of the party in the arth, the Breckinridge ticket Is the only ticket the field that can make a fight against the atk republicans. The supporter* of Mr. Douglas make some prensions to strength in the bonier slave States; i it as the campaign goes on their weakness J ill become more ami more apptrent. until sir last calculation of breaking the unity of p South upon Breckinridge will have j ni-hed. There is good reason to believe. ? >m the prevailing sentiment of the Southern ople. that all the supposed doubtful Southern ates will swing round to Breckinridge on i ?ction day. and upon this paramount idea. ! it in this crisis the South must stand a* a i it upon the platform of her constitutional ? [htS. Nor is this all. Pennsylvania may possibly 11 be secured to Breckinridge; for the poslm of Hickman and Forney in that State, as < p leaders of the Douglas movement against j p administration, has turned over the demo- J scv there into the undisputed cnntrnl of tho i -eckinridge interest. Not i? this ticket with- ] it hopes or a powerful assistance from the nservative elements of the old line whig and merican parties. Thus there is a hope of shire victory, which will strengthen Breckinlge. not only in the Sauth and In the doubt1 Northern States, but in ?vory Northern ate. county, city and town, to the prejudice Douglas. In this city we hare no doubt th>?t the eckinridge movement Is already largely in e ascendancy over the oppovng Douglas facto; for in the interest of Bre kinridge are all p sinews of war. Old Tammuny has been a tie too fast in defining ber position. It may it such free soil counties as St. I^awrence. rkimer and Orwego, but squatter sovereignis not the democratic panacea for this com>rcial metropolis. Unless Timmany Hall, srefore. is prepared not only to sink or swim tii Mr. Douglas for tlx Presidency, but also relinquish the rich municipal spoils of this perlal city, the sachem* wi'l have to tack p so a? to catch the prevailing southerly nds which blow over " (Li- tight little Uld." 0 ratlDAY, JULY 20, 1660. The OiiAMincmuu* in Bad* Bau.? Phtskel Thao^no in th? unjjui sfites.- -.Base bull has grown in a few jean into a optional game in this country, at cricket has long been in England, each being suited to the genius of the people. A grand match of base ball took place yesterday in Brooklyn for the championship. The KxceUdor Club has just made the tour of the State from here to Buffalo, and has beaten with ease every club with which it came in contact. One of the astonished Buffalo papers observed that such ball playing was never witnessed in that city before. Now, on their return to Brooklyn, they have contested the belt with the champion club, the Atlantic, who had never yet been beaten in any match, although they had played in hundreds of contests. The greatest interest was excited. Vast numbers attended. The Excelsior won by very unex- j pec ted odds?nearly six to one?twenty-three to four; showing the effect of training and practice. This game is only one out of three, and the Excelsior must win another game to win the match. The second game is to be played on tbe 9th of August, and if the Atlantic do not make great improvement in the interim. the Excelsior will become the Champion Clvib, and retain "the Belt"' till some other aspiring Nine \ indicate their right to it. This excellent manly game ought to be encouraged, calculated as it is to develope the physical powers of our youth, and to withdraw them in their leisure hours from tbe seductions of vice. In recent years there is a general ten dency in this direction which is highly gratifying. It is evinced in a great variety of forms? at one time in gymnastic exercises, at another in horseback riding and driving fleet horses; in bout racing, in rowing, in fire companies, in base ball, and in the drill of military companies. Vast sums of money are spent on these things, particularly excursions, which are peculiar to this country, where money is easily earned, and lavished as freely. Military companies are constantly in the habit of going on long excursions, sometimes a distance as great as from one end of Europe to the other, and all at their own expense. For instance, a company of Zouaves are here now from Chicago, in the far West, after having travelled through Canada and various parts of this country, and they carry with them a prize which they offer to any military com- | pany who can outdrill them. None, as yet, not even "the crack'' company of our Seventh regiment, has been found able to bear away from them the palm of victory. In the same way, a base ball club, the Excelsior, of Brooklyn. consisting of young gentlemen of means, set out from here at their own expense on a tour to the extreme Western frontier of the State, and, playing ball in numerous towns, came back victors in every contest. It was tbis club who challenged to a friendly game the great cricketers ot England?"the eleven"? picked men who made their appearance here last year. This spirit of generous emulation deserves to be cultivated. In the palmy and glorious days of the Grecian republics, the prize which was contended for in the Olympic games was a wreath of the leaves of the bay tree; and to him who saved the life of a citizen was awarded the civic crown, which consisted of 'oak leaves. It was not the intrinsic value of the prize, but the honor which attached to it, that rendered it an object of ambition. In a new and prosperous community, abounding with all the material resources which can minister to the sustenance of man, and where the natural tendency is to materialism, the spirit of chivalry and honor ought to be encouraged, so as to correct the evil effect produced on tbe population by excessive devotion to tbe grovelling pursuits of mere money getting. Thus, among tbe Greeks and Romans tbe fine arts were encouraged to elevate tbe popular taste above tbe gross indulgences of animal life. Tbe steps in human progress are, first, food, clothing and lodging: then tbe useful arts, recreation for tbe body and physical training, including games of all kinds; and lastly, adornment of tbe dwelling and person, with high cultivation of tbe mind, and the developemeot of tbe fine arts. Such is civilization, and it is making rapid headway among us. Excessive Charce* rt Hitei. Keepers.? Every year, as soon as tbe season for pleasure travelling sets in. we receive a large number of letters from persons who have been subject to excessive charges by hotel keepers, either at tbe watering places or in provincial cities and towns e?> rovfe.

We have frequently called attention to the >xtortioDs of the hotel keepers at the watt-ring dnres, the ruling idea with them seeming to be 0 make money without paying the slightest atention to the comfort of tbeir patrons, or guests." as they elegantly call their victim*. iVith a lew exceptions, the American hotels out >f New York are very bad and very dear, and here la not the slightest excuse for it. as our >eople are more lavish with their money, when ravelling, than any other on the face of the arth. Then, as a rule, the hotel keeper is too [rand to attend personally to the comfort of tls patrons, and they are compelled to make up or hie neglect by liberal gratuities to the arrant*. The system U all wrong, and until it la adtcally reformed such bills aa those paid by nir correspondent will be more or leas fre- i |uent.

He has paid them off in full, compound interest and all. Little did Dean Richmond, Cogger, Confidence Caesidy A Co. expect to be brought to such a reckoning for their treaoherous doings at Syracuse. They foolishly imagined that they had caught the Sage of Bingbamton in their toils, and that tbey would clip bis wings so that he could do no further mischief against their darling schemes of spoils and plunder. But he has turned the tables upon them most effectively. The most telling and terrible exposition of the loathsome rottenness of this Regency that has ever been made was made by Mr. Dickinson at the Cooper Institute this last Wednesday evening. The provocations were ample, and the castigation was administered with a will and with a pungency peculiarly refreshing. He paints the Regency delegation to the life as tbey betrayed themselves at Charleston and at Baltimore. He says that " the ruling faction had snuffed up the scent of lour hundred millions of spoils, and that for them the administration of Douglas was expected to rain milk and honey, snow powdered sugar, and bail vegetable life pills;'' tnat such are tne creatures that thrive in tbe fetid atmosphere of corrupt legislation, "and swell to obese proportions, like vultures upon offal;" that they are "office brokers who crawl and cringe around the footsteps of power, and by false pretences procure themselves or their vile tools places of official trust and emolument, that they may pack and control caucuses and conventions, at the expense of the people they defraud and betray." Who can dispute the fidelity of this picture? Who can doubt the conclusion to which Mr. Dickinson is drawn, to wit: that henceforward this Albany Regency gang "will be held and treated as political outlaws, and Bet at defiance;" that "there is no fox so crafty but his hide finally goes to the hatters;" and that this treacherous Albany clique henceforth will only be daogerous to those who trust them? It was a bad day for them when they thought they bad taken in the Sage of Binghamton to offer up as a burnt offering to squatter sovereignty at Charleston and at Baltimore. We may expect to hear some dismal howling from the Albany curiosity shop before many days are over. The Breckinridge Organization in This State.?The following circular has been issued by Mr. Schell, Collector of this port, and it is evident that a powerful Breckinridge organization will be established in the State, embracing i all the conservative elements. The Binews of i war, too, are with this movement, and It will have its effect, not only in this city, but through- < out the rural districts of the State, and proba- j bly in other States of the Union. It is evident 1 that compromise with Mr. Douglas is out of the , question. "The constitution and the equality of the States" is the motto, and war to tbe knife will be waged for that ^principle against | all odl>onent8.

On the 2d of August in North Carolina an election for State officers will take place; and in Arkansas, Texas and Missouri elections will be held on the Cth of the same month for State officers and mem- ^ bers of Congress. In Vermont and Maine simi- r lar elections will be held in September; and in . Florida, Mississippi, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio and tj Pennsylvania these contests will take place in a October. As premonitory signs of the result of tbe Presidential struggle, these preliminary batties are highly important, and will be looked forward to with deep interest. No doubt the division of tbe democracy which has taken place p ?Ill 1 * * *-* vu mm a v^luruuai ijurnuvu win wr farnru irilO g the State contests, and the relative strength of t< the Oreckinridge and Douglas faction.-* will be ti tested, as well as the strength of Bell and Lin- T coin: and there will be some indication also of n the amount and value of political combinations, a should any take place. The first skirmish will si be fought in North Carolina, where the Douglas if party boast of great strength. The 2d of Au- ft gust, therefore, may tell bow that Is, and afford C a clue to the ftiture. If be has the strength his friends say in the South, his partisans ought to ? be elected in North Carolina. ^ _ Tiik WaI.TOk-Math*ws Mi ri?f.h?Kbsu.T or w th? Isyi kft.?A* our reader? are aware, the i, Coroner's jury, in the case of the murder of ei Mr. Walton in Kigbteenth street, on the night M of the Mth of June, hare elicited sufficient In- 11 formation out of the testimony to partially unravel the mystery, and fasten the crime upon ?* the eldest step son of the deceased. It is true * that the evidence was wholly circumstantial. 'N< and that the identification of the accused wa? w by no mean? clear; yet there was a chain of %b circumstance* encircling the suspected party strong enough to warrant the finding of the " jury. For example: the existence of an ap t parent motive, the threats, and the custom of carrying arms; and perhaps the strongest link in that chain was his refusal, by the advice of " counsel, to prove an alibi. ? It la not always, however, that the verdict of t" a Coroner's jnry Is followed by an indictment in mysterious cases of this kind. The story has yet to undergo a carefbl scrutiny by the u, Grand Jury, and perhaps the pri?oner may be ^ able to present a case to that body, as be ?lleges he can do. which will relieve him from the charge of murder, nnd thefprnaltie* wihiih xwalf convicfion.

M?a Greeley is out with an elaborate howt becanae there is no demand for the campaign documents, which are printed in the Tribrmt office by the cord, and which, from present appearances, will be liable to remain on the publisher's hands till doomsday, or some other distant and indefinite period. In order to sell bis documents, Greeley endeavors to make out that there is an immediate necessity for the distribution of large numbers of copies of Lincoln's Life, in order that the republicans may carry the day, and calls on the local organisations to make the " wealthy and aspiring" bleed freely in payment for the documents. Now, this may be all very well for H. Greeley & Co., who, like the belated newsboys, have "got stuck" with a lot of pamphlets, and are obliged to cry loudly in order to get rid of them; but 4 the real fact in the case is that there is no * need of campaign documents, because | there is no campaign. Lincoln is virtually ? elected. Breckinridge and Douglas have elected him between them, and all that Oid Abe has to do now is to select his Cabinet and get his things ready for a journey to Washington. So ire warn the " wealthy and aspiring" republicans against Hon. Massa Greeley's insidious attacks upon their bank accounts. They need not give a cent unless they wish to help along Hon. MaBea Greeley. Lincoln is all right. As for Greeley, he can sell bis documents to the grocers and bakers, or keep them till 1864, when, perhaps, they will come in as good as new. Stephen D. Dnun amd the Pittshcro Forgery Cask.?Mr. Dillaye has issued a pamphlet giving au account of his unpleasant connection with the Pittsburg forgery case, and ! assailing in unmeasured terms the motives of , those who caused charges to be brought against bim. which the Judge and jury who tried the case pronounced to be entirely groundless. Mr. Dillaye Bays the prosecution has its origin in politics, and that be stood high in his official position as Appraiser at Large, both with the late and the present Secretary of the Treasury, "until he came in contact with Daniel E. Sickles and Emanuel B. Hart, by exposing and denounc- I ing a plan by which they and their confederates in Tammany Hall attempted to deprive the democracy of New York, through the scheme of ward organizations, of all representation in Convention except such as they might dictate." This he says led to his dismissal from office by the present Secretary of the Treasury, when he made further exposures of official misdeeds in high places. "A spy'' was then put on his track, who followed him up till an opportunity offered of manufacturing false and malicious charges against him in connection with the Bank of- , McKeesport. He says the result was that "nearly every paper of consequence in the land published an astounding account of the Pittsburg forgery, and heralded his name from one extreme of the country to another as a forger, who could not be found, but in pursuit of scorn me omcers 01 tne law were actively en gaged." lie was, however, content to wait for ten months till his trial disposed of the case?a trial on an indictment for "forging and uttering ? the certificates of deposit, knowing them to be lorgeries." Mr. Dillaye. being triumphantly acquitted, can now aAord to deal terrible retribution to his "enemies, persecutors and slanderers," and be does so with a vengeance. A Good Move or the Rioht Duntcriov.?1The Breckinridge and Lane meeting on Wednesday light passed unanimously a resolution " that a :ommittce of one from each Congressional disxict be appointed to call a State Convention to lominate an electoral ticket and candidates for be coming election.'* This is a right move in be right direction.
