The Great Eastern returned to Iter anchorage , fcere yesterday morning, bringing, in addition to those she took away, many who came from Cape May. Great dUsatisfartion appears to have been c xpreaned, owing to the inefficiency of the arrangeraeato for eating and sleeping. Ladies were compelled to sleep on deck, drinking and washing water vih? bor-gkt at all prices, and the occasion generally seems, in a pleasurable senje, to have been a failure. Several rich scenes occurred on board i during the first night out. which, together with | ether interesting matter, will be found fully re- , ported elsewhere.

The Committee of Investigation reported that the boiler was one that bad been rejected as of no further use by a propeller, on which it was employed before being placed ia the steamtug. and exhibited a specimen of the metal of the boiler-a piece of rust eaten iron about one fourth of an inch in thickness. The inspectors. on motion, were censured for neglecting to condemn the boiler. The Board of Councilmen met last evening, when a large number of reports were disposed of. The bill of John H. Steel, amounting to $339 46, for reminding and repairing books in the Street Commissioner's office during the year 1855, was referred to the Committee on Finance. The Comptroller's communication, asking for an additional appropriation for the year i860, including the sum of 1103,000 for the Japanese entertainment, will be discussed at the next meeting of the Board. The Comptroller^ weekly report was presented, and shows the following: -Balance ia Treasury July 26, $?370.303 t>7; receipts from all sources to July 31, $131,736 28; total amount, $802,039 85.

The investigation before Coroner Jackman, in the case of John Spriging, who ws? faulty stabbed at Jones' Wood on Monday evening, waa concluded yesterday.

The Wsy to U?r?st Lincoln* The disruption of the democratic party has brown the political element* of the South into i Btate of confusion from which it is difficult low to estimate the relative strength of the several parties in the field in that section. While the supporters of Bell and Everett would bare us believe that they will certainly slip In between Douglas and Breckinridge, and carry off at least half a dozen Southern States; and while ffce Southern supporters of Douglas profess some confidence in their ability to run the election into Congress, so as to leave out Breckinridge and Lane, the Breckinridge party, which is much the strongest in the South, is evidently becoming stronger every day. Thus the probabilities are that, on the day of the Presidential election, the South will be a unit in support of the Breckinridge ticket. This concentration upon Breckinridge will be a Southern but not a disunion movement, it will be a conservative effort to supersede that disunion alternative which will inevitably follow the occupation of the federal government by the anti-slavery coalition of the North. At present, except from the parties opposed to Breckinridge in the South, we hear very little of any disunion agitation in that section. These parties, however, are industriously ventilating the secession speeches, propositions, correspondence. conventions and resolutions for which the Southern democracy have been sc distinguished for the last three or four years down to the explosion of the Charleston Convention; and all these disunion souvenirs are thus being reproduced in order to weaken the Breckinridge ticket among the conservative democracy of the North. The Northern democracy should not be led astray by these devices. The only danger tc it. . TT_f 1_1 -L 1 A _ 111 1. - it. me Li Dion wuicu we uuve w irm win ue vn< danger which will follow Lincoln's election The defeat of Lincoln, whether by the Electora Colleges or by Congress, will be equivalent t< a new lease of security to the Union. And h< may be defeated. But how? Not by running two contesting democratic electoral tickets it this State, that State or the other, but by the union of the party upon a single electoral tlckel In every State, and for their strongest candi dates. And who are thoir strongest candidates. They are Breckinridge and Lane. The Breckinridge ticket, we have said, will, In all probability, command the suffrages of all the Southern States. We think so, because, in vi?w of the future, the neceaeity for the present more pressing than in 1&>C, of the unity of tb< South, will make the South a unit. The peopl< of that section will discover that, so far as the] are immediately concerned. Mr. Douglas is it the way. and that Mr. Bell can do nothing. W< suspect, too, that all such Southern co?litioa< as that lately entered into in Georgia, in the adoption of a mixed Bell and Douglas part] electoral ticket, will operate to strengthet Breckinridge with recruit* from both those par tie*. The slavery question, paramount in the North, is the vital issue in the South; and upot this taue of life or death the position of Breck inridge. being clear, pimple and unmixed will doubts or equivocations, will command th( support of the Southern States. in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, under th< guidance of the Breckinridge wing, the demo cracy are in a fair way to an organization which may carry both these States. Tht masses of the party of both wings in New York would readily coalesce if the Marplots oi the Albany Regency wore out of the way. Ii wis the Albany Regency that interposed the Van Buren movement of 1M8, by which Gen Com and the democratic party in that campaign were defeated. The .<.?me game of rule or ruin Is again re.-orted to by this desperate Albany cabal of huckstering spoil-men. TVy ohould be repudiated and kicked out. and th<> party should proceed to reorganize, not fur the purpoM of proTing the strength or weakness ol Douglas or Breckinridgqf but for the purpose of defeating Lincoln.

Thus these three SUtes may yet be turned against Lincoln, and upon that single inane, that while bis election will inevitably inaugurate a practical and revolutionary disunion movement in the South. hia defeat will be a decisive step to the annihilation of this aggressive and dangerous anti-slavery republican party. lawi.bp*we an'p Bi/x?iwhkt? is Dkwkh Crrr.?Affairs are looking badly in the vicinity of the Pike's Teak gold regions.

Bros gham'n Surer and Dallas' Silenrc? England and tht Inlltd MUU* aiRalen of Inferior Rare*. 1 The conduct of Mr. Dallas, the Minister of i the United State* in England, in not resenting the insulting sneer addressed to him, in his capacity as the representative of his country and its institutions, by Lord Brougham, at the meeting of the Statistical Congress of all nations, is deserving of the severest reprobation at the hands of the American people and the American government It was not alone the words, the speaker and his tone and manner that d?landed an instant rebuke and reply from the Americas Minister, but the occasion and the assembly rendered aiirh n rmirflp nn tKa narf ftf Ifr Hallaa *>a a/ imperious necessity. In a Congre* presided over by the Prince Consort of Eagtead. and where Ministers of the Crown, many of the highest personages of the realm, representatives from most of the civilized nations, and from all the widely scattered colonies of the British empire, were present, a deliberate sneer, emanating from ignorance and malice, and directed personally at himself, and through him at his country and its social and political institutions, called for instant refutation. He was either incompetent for, or falne to, his trust; and it remains ior the independent press of New York, In permanent Congress of intellect assembled, to fill the duty which Mi. Dallas has neglected. We pass over the speaker and his malice. lie belongp to that class of people tfcat for two generations have ruled the public opinion and the public policy of England, and who, quick to pcrceive the mote In their brother's eye, and failing to perceive the beam that is in their own, have placed their pride in a self-satisfied ability to organize and govern inferior races, of whose capacity and Instincts they know nothing, except through fallacious and impracticable theories. It is the two kindred nations, sprung from the same stock, that stand arraigned before the assembled world: and by their works shall they be judged. They come not as mother and daughter, for their career as free and constitutionally governed nations dates, In fact, from about the same period of time. If either nation has precedence of age 1 as a free people it is the United States. However far back in history the germs of English uoony may De traced, tney were nearly tr not quite extinguished during the infamous reign of George the Third. While our fathers were struggling for their rights, and after securing independence?bringing their genius to the mighty task of laying the permanent foundations of freedom in our constitution and Union? the liberties of England were as though they bad never existed. Fox, Burke and ho?ti of EnglUh freemen went down to their graves despairing of their country, while the younger Pitt deserted to the King, and the representative places of the people were filled with corrupt war contractors and the paid mercenaries of the Court It was our victory and our ext ample that gave new life to the cause of popu' lar freedom in Great Britain, and really secured the establishment of the boasted liberties of England. Since that time the two nations have trodden i rival paths of greatness. Beginning the present I century with greatly disproportionate popula, tiony ?the one having eleven and the other three > millions of people?wealth, trade and mechani? cal appliances, they stand, at the end of sixty r years of intense application, side by side in the i possession of all the material elements of na> tional greatness. In the moral elements a critii I cal examination would show that we far surpass > | Britain. With a government still fearing to educate and arm her people, England still stands on the verge^ of revolution; while oar common school system, the activity and energy of our religious establishments, the intelligence, enterprise and versatility of our people; the vitality of our institutions, and the policy of our government, all defy intestine commotion, and challenge the admiration of the world. With this brief allnaion to the material and moral results produoed by the social and political theories and policies of the two nations, we come to the point in question?that on which Lord Brougham founded his ignorant and malicious sneer?the demonstrated capacity of the two countries to organize and govern inferior races. In this field each has develcped both theory and practice to their highest results, and by their fruits must they be judged. African slavery in this country we owe to English , greed- The colonists protested again and again, without effect, before a corrupt Court and a greedy people, against the Introduction here of negro slaves. Having them forced p upon us. the question rose how best to govern , them for the good of all. That question we have solved with the maintenance of the InstiI tution of domestic servitude. Under that institution tha black race in America exhibit! to day a material, a moral and a religious progress such m the came raoe cannot exhibit In any ether part of the world. Their immense increase in numbers proves beyond denial their physical well bring. The absence of crime among thorn, the prosperity of their churches, their docility, faithfulness and lore fur their masters, and. above all, the peaceful confidence in each other which it presented by the great mass of the white and black racei in our Southern States, prove the happy adaptability of our policy to the social wants and feelinga of both. The material results of a society thus wisely constituted are felt in every pulsation of commerce and in every throb of Industry in the civilized world. Let ua now contemplate the contrast presented by the results of England's rule over inferior races. Guided by the false philanthropy of Lord Brougham and his fellow? ruin has attended it everywhere. The once prosperous British West India colonies are now gasping on the verge of social barbarism, and the argosies of commerce that once crowdt <1 their ports are seen no more. In Indh a still sadder picture Is presented. The starving ryot* Mid plundered rajaK after enduring jenrs of oppres^'en, were drven bydopftlInto ? rebellion thaA shook tie fc nd^Uons of While foa^H TTonso^JHHMM^lending a powerful aup port to Britain's sway, one hundred and eight millions ot laborious Hindoos, guided by Eog land's skill and ruled by her wisdom, canno maintain social and political vitality withou assistance from the imperial treasury and im perial armies. Enthusiasts may proclaim visionary theories fanatics may cite individual instances of hard ship or cruelty, such as all society presents and self-sufficient philanthropists may assert thi purity and holiness ef their motives; but all o these must be judged by the aggregate of goo< or evil, of misery or happiness, which the] bring to mankind. It was these aggregate! which Mr. Dallas should have presented to th< assemblage where he was insulted with phari saical.pride, that the world might judge of Um value of the social and political theories o America and Europe, as best adapted for th< government of inferior races. Whether it wai incapacity or moral cowardice that caused hin to sit and silently permit his country to be in suited in his person is of little consequence The fact shows hw unfitness to be a representa tive of the American people, and the govern ment owes to itself and the country his imme dlate recall. Progress of the Prince of Wales* As the Prince of Wales approaches nearer t< the United States, in his progress through th< British Colonies, his character shines ou brighter and brighter, so that by the time hi arrives among us all will be prepossessed in hi favor. Already every one pronounces him i capital, whole-souled fellow. Unlike a haughty, supercilious, empty headed unfledged lorilling, looking down upon all mei without titles ua an inferior set of huraai beings, to take any notice of whom would bi amazing condescension on his part, this younj gentleman, who is every inch a prince, puts 01 no airs, but, on the contrary, makes every persoi feel happy and at home in his presenc? lie evince? his delight and gratitude a what is done to entertain and honor him and be enters into the spirit of th proceeding? with a gusto and an unaffected heartiness that captivate every spectatoi He shows that he is not too much of a princ* to be a man. He rides in the rain perfectl; unconcerned: he is in raptures with the troops He is fond of gayety and excitement, >ays ou correspondent, and enjoys the scenes in whicl he mingles immensely. He talks and smile with the officers near him, laughs heartily a the ludicrous games and scenes, and appear very much interested in the foot races. In th< ball room he is good humored, courteous anc affable to all. He is a capital waltzer and i very entertaining partner. He rests his part ner frequently, and fills up the Interval wit! cheerful conversation and remarks upon th company. " It is amusing," says a looker on " to observe the eyes of the ladies in the rooi and gallery watching his every movement am gesture, and casting envious glances at hi fortunate partners. I heard more than on whisper. 'What a beautiful dancer!' as h glided in the dance/' He must be very banc some. Before, we heard of hia brilliant haze eyea; now we are told his " almost Roma nose" is equally fine. Halifax is one gran carnival, so popular is the Prince; and as fc the ladies, they are dying about him. Since the time of the Blarfe Prince, who wa the idol of the English people, none other ha erer been half so popular as Albert Edward Be is a prince, therefore, of the good old school The Black Prince Edward, who, at the battl of Creasy, adopted from the brave King of B? hernia the three ostrich feathers and the Gei man motto, "Ich dim"?I serve?which ere since haa been the motto of the Princes of Walei was equally distinguished for his military et thuslasm, his valor in the field, and his chiral rous gallantry to the fair. The present Princ la evidently a worthy successor of that histori name. lie also recalls the memory of another Princ of Wales. ' Hal," the " sweet wag." who wa the boon companion of jolly lalstaff. am whose sayings and doings are recorded b, Shakspere. llal, who was as natural .as if h were not born a prince, was a terrible fclloi among the ladies; and by all accounts Alber Ldward Is breaking their hearts by the score And it is not to be wondered at He is younj and good looking, has good sense, makes goo< speeches, is good humored and good natured. i beautiful dancer, highly accomplished. an< above all he is devoted to the sex. We hope hia heart will not be caught be fore he reaches the United States, and that b will reserve it for an American lady to conquei lift (TTand 1) AI ll h* orot tin nn t mitmiflnAn scale, so that there may be a good opportu nity of liming this splendid bird. lie wil tuke great delight in a dance It was a a bull in Baltimore that Prince Jerome Bo naparte was captivated bj Miss Patterson There are thouiands as beautiful and attracts as she in the country. And the heart of th< Briton ia jnst as susceptible of the tender pan sion as that of the Frenchman. Lot the ladta be arrayed in their most killing charms, and al try to see who will get the Prince. In ererj w ay he Is worth a hundred lords. When thej com* to America they will not dance with the daughters of the people. But the son of I Queen, the heir to the throne of the greal British empire, is ready to dance, and laugh and joke, with eTery decent pretty g'.rl who comes in his way. Tur Ax.pr.rmkx a.\t> the Japamsh v .? i ? The Aldermen seem determined to clutch thai f 10T?,000 ostensibly expended upon the Japanese; but we trust that thej may be defeated yet if the Comptroller performs his duty in the matter as the public hare a right to expect. The Aldermen pawed an ordinance on Tuesday authorising the appropriation, It is tme; but Mr. Haws Is not bound thereby to pay it until he is satisfied that the items of the bill are genuine and not extravagant, which we certainly think be never can be, Inasmuch as he is an intelligent and honest man. The Comptroller has exercised his prerogative on other occasions ia curbing unnecessary squandering of the public money, and there never was a case of gross swindling so strong as this presented to him before. The public will be very much disappointed in Mr. Ilaws if he dce? not put his foot upon the neck of this impudent fraud. Seme of the Aldermen were m usual, very violeo*. ruljv and abulve In the debate over pv-"???^ WPmnronEe violent epeechmaken. He thought k proper to assert that the reason why the press j of the city, with one accord, exposed and opposed this outrageous swindie, was because a it reporter of some obscure paper did not get t enough of champagne. The prospect of losiog i- a share of the proceeds of this base cheat seems to have driven some of the Aldermen mad. and i; they are naturally indignant with the indepen dent press, which stands between these forty i, bandite and the people's pockets; for?

As to the South, in one letter we are told that th* frlend? of Douglas, in Tennessee, are going over to Breokianage, wtuie m uuother we are informed that in I Louisiana fc a ' prospect of a union between the Bell ana Douglas men. In Georgia we are told none but Douglas hag any chance, and there is the > most bitter hostility that can be conoeived ? against Breckinridge and Lane?a statement t which our readers will do well to qualify with a 9 very large quantity of salt. A writer from Alas bama says Bell is the only man for that State and i for the South, but against Lincoln they are all united to a man. It is a pity they do not prove 1, that fact in come practical form which would n Wo A?A?lk?An Tn Tnroa a onvrnunnn/1 un ^ UiBlUC UU3 vvn iiuvni xu a \ " vvi?vrj/vuu\ ui a states that Douglas will have no ticket, and the e rote of the State will be given to Breckinridge. X In Virginia the democracy are all at sea; and 11 unless they do something very decisive, and that a soon, Bell will get the electoral vote of that >. State. In Missouri the democracy are equally t in a fog, and Bell's chance* there are the best, i. When we come to the Northwest and the e Northeastern States we find the same confusion. 1 An Illinois Douglasite attempts to show that ' Douglas can carry his own State. Hp ould as e soon carry the Union, while Breckinridge and J Bell run against him. If there were no other i. candidates but Douglas and Lincoln, it would r be very problematical whether the Little h Giant would succeed or not; but as matters s now stand his success in Illinois is t simply an impossibility. In Wisconsin the pos pularity of Douglas is great, but so is the popua larity of Lincoln. In this State our Albany 1 correspondence informs us the Bell and Douglas ? forces will unite; but that will not prevent the State from giving itB vote to Lincoln, unless h they both unite their forces with those of Brecke inridge, the only man who, except Lincoln, has i, any chance ot being elected by the people. In a Rhode Island the principal portion of the ded mocracy will go for Douglas, but there is not is the slightest probability of his getting the elece toral vote of that little State. e This man of correspondence shows that while I- the forces of Lincoln are united and compact, >1 the hosts opposed to him are divided and split n up and warring against each other. If they j d were all united to a man against him, his bare I ?r defeat would be just as mu<;| w they could accomplish. But divided as they are, What other s result can there be than the triumph of Lincoln? " Pcblic Decknct.?George N. Sanders, the , discharged Nary Agent at this place, has write ten a letter abusing the President Nothing K more natural. Every one, in private life, expects to be abused by the servants he disr charges; Sanders did precisely what Pat does 9 when he is kicked ont for insolence, or John, when he is shown the door for making free I v*ith the contents of the pantry. In Sanders e case the solace of abuse was the more congec nial. as Sanders has, in his time, abused almost every good and honorable man whom he has ? been permitted to know. His grass attacks on M Senator Hunter, General Cass, and about half $ the Senate, because he could not secure the Lony don Consulate, are still a source of shame and 0 sorrow to the few good natured persons who v entertain a pitying regard for him. 1 Some wag said that Sanders' letter was like i.

There appears to be serious trouble among the republican politicians of this State. They are abusing each other with as much bitterness as the democratic politicians. War to the knife seems to be declared between Horace (Ireelej on the one side, and Webb and Weed on the other, as to who shall control the nominations for Governor and the other offices at the com Ing State election. The Chevalier Webb is in a terrible way abont Greeley. He comes out yesterday In a perfect rage, abusing the non. Massa Greeley without mercy for defeating Seward at Chicago, and for attempting to "engineer the machine for the ccming election." He eren threatens that if Greeley per?M?

Their bargain ana their friendships can only be compared to On embraces of the bear, who hugs to death that which he loves. Van Buren was thus hugged. The Regency used him as their instrument to divide and defeat the democratic party in 1848. lie is, politically, defunct ever since. During the present year they killed Governor Wise, and they slaughtered Daniel S. Dickinson. They tried to kill Douglas at Charleston and Baltimore. but he was too much for them there. They are now, however, more successful. Having got him fairly in their clutches, they have slipped the thugs' noose adroitly around his neck, and that will be the last of the Little Giant They will consign him to retirement in somerLindenwold in Illinois, as they have done with Vaa Buren in this State for the last twelve years. Together with Douglas, they are preparing a political tomb for a number of other men mixed up with bis fortunes, among them Mayor Wood, who gave up everything?sacrificed hii fine position at the South, and his great strength in this city?in order to be hand and glove with the Regency. They are embracing him to death, and will cheat him in whatever bargain they make with him, as they have alwayt cheated and always will cheat those who let them come too close to them. As the bear of the Regency has made no bargain with us. and can make none, we are perfectly free to send an arrow into his side whenever we find him husrsrin? his nrev In that loving manner bo peculiar to him.
