Tte excitement ooneeijueBt upon the recent vUstt to thia city of the Chicago Zouavea, alae by their performano** In giving our military men and others a specimen of their military skill in this city and olaewhere, having somewhat subsided, we think it but an act of juatice to all, and especially to our military readers at large, to give a more critical notice of the peculiar drill of the Zouaves, which we wev unable to do from the preay upon our military column until now. The Western chumniona m are now homeward bound, and In their absence rank*, nor in It derirablo, a* iuch exaciuuu would ante r .Ally interfere w ith prompt eaoculioa, mid the movements will be habitually Indicate! by the soui.l of tbe bngle.

We are v free to confess, in common with the majority of our citl sens who with oar national military institution, that wo were at first moat favorably impressed upoa th? first appearance of the Zouaves at their exhibition drill in front of the City Hall?their unique uniforms, the energy and naturalness with which they moved, and the power of enduring htisue which they clearly demonilrated during three and one-half hours' drill under the rays of a Jaly bud. While we are frank to confess that the Chicago Zouaves poraessj many military excellences, as, tor Instance, In the manual of arms and company manoeuvres, they uphold and adopt a system which, in many ot its details, violate icportuit Laws of military tactics, aod to which we are obliged to take exceptions. Ia the first place, we shall allude to that part of the drill known as "fancy" movements, such as "forming a cross," "forming circles," and silting in each others' laps, which is the latter position: placing bands upon the shoulders to give a scenic effect to the drill; all this, we say, is auti military in Its inception and practice. We will not dwell further upon this point, but proceed to the other branchas of the Zouave drill The exhibitions given in this city and elsewhere consisted of a consecutive series of man'vuvres arranged In programmatlcal order, so that the exhibition dri Is by the Zouaves, from the tlm? they left Chicago until they reached this city, was a repetition of the same manoeuvres in which they had for the year previous been unremittingly practiced. At their exhibition drill in the Park, the first movement they executed requiring a delicacy of execution was the formation of company "on right by file into line." and of which we shall speak more fully hereafter. Again, the Zouaves use a " side step " to the right nrjeft, which la not recognised by Scott or Hardee, for obvious reasons. Their " order arms " was admirably executed, and some of their other movements were entitled to commendatory notice. Their drill in the loadings and firings Is not op to the standard of many of our first class New York military companies. It is Wdly necessary to proceed any further in our criticism of the Important feature above named In the school of the soldier, but as several of our otherwise good military companies fall into the same error, it will be a sufficient excuse to pay a degree of dlscrimating attention to the subject. "Load at Wiu.."?The order "load" ia so explicit that its definition Is unmiitakeable. %et to the Zouaves must we aocord the palm of violating this the most important put of the manual of armi; tor each loads ana fires at his neighbor's will, not his own. Mil iary authors, apprehending the violation of this rule, have particularly called the attention of Instructors to habituate the recruits by degrees to load with the greatest possible promptitude, each without regulating himself by hie neighbor, and above all without waiting tor him. Firing by file, which Is mod used in war, commencct on the right of each company at once, and every man alter firing load* bis piece and continues tiring without regard to any one around him. Yet this rule is violated by the Zouaves. The ulterior object of company drill is a preparation for the battalion. It is evident that as a squad to aot independently the Zouaves would prove invincible, but for a battalion they are most sidly deficient. After the firings, ranks were closed with a stamping of fret. Mirching by the dank was exceedingly well done. The distance*) were well sustained, and, in fact, tbeir marching deserves all praise. There Is an elasticity about their step that is really captivating to tbe mil'tary enthusiast, and flies the maxim that "one of the mysto ries of warlike operations is contained in tbe legs.'' "On right by file into line." The front rank, with the two rank formation, is nearly all formed before the war rank moves. The magnitude of this error caa be imagined by tbe several companies of a battalion attempting to carry out the same principle. Their double quick step was w?ll timed, tholr wheeling-' good, and the company front excellent; but there in a vast difference between a small front o' twelve or fourteen Glee and a front *ucb as the battalion of cadets presents at West Point. Their advance in line of battle, at double quick, was accomplished with the greatest accuracy?no floating* or curves?and at otteft established the font of their having attained the highest poas ble standard of discipline. After'the marchings a manauvre was executed for whi' h no authority In the tactics could be found, nor rnutd its utility be divined, cx< spt >>n the Kiore of its being a very beautiful arrangement for the benefit of tbe enemy's artillery. The un and fixing or bayonet* waa lar interior to me --? m-jTi-ment by uovaral companies ihat nan ?> ?ain-?d in the First division. "Stack arms" was very good, which closed tb* flrrt part.

It is not surprising, therefore, that ttcy should (Wm this part of ;be drill a new featore In the of arms peculiar to the Zouaves. Skirmishing is essentially an tmer.cso it.ode of warlare, and since the Revolution It U.i* been mora or I'M practised in all the Kastern State*. At ooo time to this city the old Tompkm* Blues was, :o th.s respect, the admiration and pride of thecltizeos.

Tlie Sixtieth re glment will be out io full force, as also will be the Wash : UK ton regiment. Several of our city bands have alrea^l' volunteered their services, and doubtless every band wil do the same. The entire Are department, hand and steam it'll be out with their engines. and of course the Fin Rrgade will brush up their uniforms and appear in ful force. One hundred guns will be flred by the artillery and a grand display of fireworks will be made. The proprietors of the Br iggs Hooee will entertain th< 7nuavc* with a yimplimcntiry supper, and the affair wil doubtless wind up with a grand civic and miliary ball.

Juls 31.] Pursuant to call, a large number of our citizens, military and civilians, mot at the Supervisors' room, in the court bouse, last night, to take measures for extending a fitting reception to the Zouave Cadets on their return, which Is expected in a few days. Hod. John Wentworth was called to the chair, and Henry Howland. &q., appointed secretary Several spirited and commendatory speeches were made by Col. Russell, Hon. I. N. Arnold; Gen. Swift, Col. Tucker, Col. Hubt>ard, Col, Johnston, Aid. Jones, Col. CMmmings, J. C. Miller, Esq., Mayor Wentworth, and others. Col. Russell offered the following preamble and resolutions, which were received with much enthusiasm, and unanimously adopted Whereas, th? United States Zouave Cadets of Chicago are about to return from a visit to the principal Eastern cities, and, whereas, their strict adherence to the rules of temperance and morality, which form the basis of their organization, as well as their gentlemanly deportment and soldierly bearing, have won the esteem and respect of our Eastern friends; and, whereas, their whole conduct, both as civilians and military men, has been such as to reflect honor upon our city, as well as themse ves: therefore we deem It due to them, and eminently proper, that the citizens of Chicago should honor them by some public token of respect, and to this endResolved, That the citizens of Chicago will reoetve the Zouave Cadets, on their return home, with the proud feeling of their well deserved title of the champion military company of the United States. Resoled, That we enjoy a feeling of unalloyed pride at the universal meed of praise bestowed upon our gallant young Cadets at every town, and hamlet, sod city which they nave visited In their extended tour?such an ova tixi to a military organization has never been surpassed, if ever equalled in America. Resolved, That we, as citizens of Chicago, appreciate, to the fullest extent, the meritorious conduct of the Zouave Cadets, and in such wc feel an honest pride, enhanced as It has been by the worthy bestowal or all DraiN and commendation on thn mrrwit d*nnrtm?nt and W Y O MORNING EDITION?SATl ' | The Gnat Eutern Agala.

Froai our Philadelphia exchangee It appear* that tbe excursionist* from that quarter had but little to boaat of in tbe way of comfort and accommodation during tbe'.r absence from the Quaker City. In fact, their indignation, J aa popular indignation usually doea, round a safety valve ^ in the shape of a public meeting; and on Thursday laat a uu'eiixig was uciu, in me worGB ui iuc caii, "ux i secgers of the steamer John A. Warner, swindled, vio* timlzed and left on board of the Ureat Eastern, to consult in regard to further action against the proprietor! of th? John A. Warner." i At the hour for the meeting about thirty persona were assembled in front of the hall, and they saluted each i fresh accession with the cry, "Here's another victim," > and similar ejaculations. The trouble was as followsThe steamer John A. War) ner was chartered for an excursion to Gape May to see f the Great Eastern, by a gentleman of Baltimore. On Tueei day the Warner left Philadelphia with from 800 to 1,000 t passengers on board, who had purchased tickets for (aa they supposed) the round trip. , The trip to Cape May was pleasant enough, but when i the panengers got th<re they bad to land and buy a I ticket to go from Gape Isjipd to the big ship by a steami boat commonly used tW freight purpoaee, called the i Shriver. There were no scats on the Shriver, and the passengers were kept standing on board her for two hours and a half before they could get on board the Great > Eastern. When they did get on board the Shriver did not "come te time" and take them to the Warner, nor did the Warner wait for tbem. Steam waa got up \ju wc v* uucr i/nvio uio j'pjiuicu nuir, nuu i obe put off to Philadelphia again, leaving half of her luckless passengers cursing their fate on the Great Eastern and the Shriver. Home sixty of the Warner's passengers were actually brought to New York by the Great Eastern, about tnree hundred were left at Cape May, and the rest were carried back to Philadelphia. I TllK INDIGNATION MEETING. . The meeting was called to order at eight o'clock P. M. Otto Maas was called to the chair. In opening, Mr Maas made some remarks, regretting that not more of the victims were present, as they were quite numerous the night previous. He had escaped much of the bad treatment complained of, but still be felt strongly enough on the subject. The excursionists were swindled til various ways. They were brought to Oa|>e May by the Warner, but were charged fifty cents extra i for a canal freight boat, on which they stood (there were no seats), parked like sheep, for two hours and a hair, or more, before they could get on the Great Eastern This freight boat was overloaded in leaving the Great Eastern, and the officers of the Great Eastern knockei down some of the speaker's friends' to prevent their getting on board the freight boat. Then the Shriver did not oome back to the Great Eastern, so that several hundred passengers i were left on tha big ship. When the speaker (who got on board the Warner early to return to Philadelphia) remonstrated with the captain of the Warner, the captain said he did not care; that It was none of his business; that he did not care what became of them. Mr. 8. L. Btrxms, a highly indignant victim, next took the floor. Be, In company with Mr. Maas, was lucky enough to escape from the Warner to the Great Eastern quite early In the aflkir. In attempting to get off the big ship the speaker was roughly grabbed by tne neck by an officer and flung back. Be then waited for the Warner or Shriver to come and take him off. Finally the speaker saw the Warner head for Philadelphia, and he got ashore by the Shriver, and had to walk about the streets of Gape May all night, In company with others. Some sixty of the Warner's passengers went to New York on the Great Eastern, others came up from Cape May on the Kennebec, while the speaker and some of his friends got on the Warner (which had come down to Cape May on another trip), and the officers of the Warner refused to take the tickets of the victims of the trip to the big ship without the payment of another fare. Mr Parks* also added his testimony to the swindle. He added that the object of this meeting was to hire La * jers, and to see If legal redress could not be obtained. Mr. Job* Salmon, one of the Cape May night promenaders, added htastory. Be bo ight hit ticket all square at Adams' Express office, and suffered the same shameful ' treatment. The captain of the Shriver deceived the Warner's pasrengera by leaving the Great Eastern twenty mlI nnli>a hofnra Ihr timo ho itnnminritH mat th?? inoklf I er had got into the saloon of the Ureal tits lorn. Tlie captain of the Warner knew perfectly well that three hun [ dred of hi? passenger* were on board Ibe Great Eastern HbPft he bid us Rood hj and lofl for Philadelphia. The 1 speaker was on a committee to seie if the Wamur'? "" r passenger* could be provided with bed* on board the Shrlver, but we could not obtalu this. Every effort was rebuffed.

It haa been my good fortune to spend considerable time of late in this eection of the SUto?a nee t ion, it la true, isolated in thia day of railroads and telegraphs, but thoroughly interesting to one who atudiea those essential qualities of Industry and integrity which make a region or Stats as well as an individual influential and groat. Here men follow the only calling ordained of heaven, and "earn their bread by the sweat of their brow." They havo never yet learned the corrupting Influences attached to modern political life; they knew no conduct but thut which honor dictates; and It is truly refreshing to feel, an one catches the odor of an hundred harvest flelds, that there is Indeed a place where men believe what thoy pro fees, and no city Alderman at your elbow to pick one's pocket. Bellevtog that the voice of such people must be potential In the coming election, I have taken considerable pains to ascertain their political preferences?a feat much eaaier to aocompliah than in your city, where every other man you meet baa seme local political axe to gnnJ, at.J la consequently wonderfully wise and non-committa on all occasion* where political frankness 1* called for As a general thing, I believe all parlies wore disappointed at the start with the Presidential nominations. The republicans bad generally anticipated the nomination of Mr. Seward. and the democrats either Mr. Dickinson or some other equally reliable man, under circumstances which wonld secure tho united support of all branches of the distracted democratic family. It was consequently some time before the waters became settled, and the steady undercurrent of public feeling became apparent. At piesent It If cloar. ! think, that the nomination of Mr. Lincoln lias failed to meet the espectationn of bis party, and that lie will receive a cold and com paratively IndUfereet i?upjx>rt, thuugh tho divisions of hm rr mar render bis success tolerably n*rr*jn The republican party, however, to uot without Its divisions, and in the western part of this county, Chenango, an 1 throughout the Sunqoehajiua Valley, from Coopers town to Bwgbamton, the ropubi.uut ll' ket wlit receive but poor sup|K>rt ou account of tho troachery evinced toward the people of that region by Weed and Morgan in regard to the construction of their propoMd railroad. Douglas is even worse off than Linonlu. The people say they have always regarded him as a demagogue, who, like Milton's fallen hero, ?? Had rather reign In hell Than serve In heaveu? and that they will have nothing to Ho him.

This county, I think, may be set down for Breckinridge, while kr. Ilouglas will obtain no more than two hundred votes. In thi* town of Nreeee eriwciallj I took pains to obtain as near the probable vote as possible. Tbe town usually gives about two hundred democratic majority, all of which will be given this fall for Brock In rlc'g*, e* rept eight, the precise number for Douglas. In Otsego county the Ilouglas vote wilt be a little heavier, and the county may go Lincoln. Tompkins county is about equally divided between Ilouglas and Breckinridge. In Cortland county tbe democracy are generally fur lipTklnndge Broome county, the borne of Dickinson, is for Breckinridge, and not enough Dotigl?a men to form a corporal's guard Madison county proba bly Dougis*, in preference to Breckinridge, but turo t??r tbe "rail splitter."

It is this fact in bis ewe that goes farthest to render kta nomination a little doubiful Neit cm the Hit stands probably the moat disinterested gentleman in the Slate, one who has never held an office, though he baa been urgently solicited to scoept several. I mean James M. Cook. That Rentieman ia not a candidate He never waa a candidate. He La only in the hand* of bis friends. * Mr. Opdyke, the gentleman who waa deluded Into the Idea that he could be elected Mayor of your city laat fall and came out third beet, ia alao an aspirant for gubernatorial honor*. It ia understood that an edition of hta ceatvg before the Chamber of Commerce on the subject <.f the currency, cola, &c , ia soon to be isaucd in chcap form for popular circulation, from which hia single colebruted speech in the Assembly, denouncing Weed aa supreme ic gislatlve jobber and dictator, will be omitted. ] Among the gentlemen who aro understood to be willing are Judge Ira Harris, E. W Leavenworth, who ha? thua far had Dad luck; Speaker I.ltllejokn, Senator Dlven, 4c., Ac. There la one gentleman who, though he ba^ the greatest number of friends, is, nevertheless no willing to take the nomination for Governor. I mean oxI.ieutenant Governor Scldtn. lie Is the favorite of the West. Nothing waa ever more certain than that there la not the usual Interem relt in the pending canvaaa by the peo pie at large. There is ihr from beiug as yet anything like an awakeninir anion? the republicans, who sufTfer mawt i fatally from apathy, to whom excitement ia an absolute necessity, and who, notwithstanding tbii marked absence of it, or even tbe most moderate amount of zeal other tban thai manifested by leaden, proteod the utmost confluence. Nothing is more certain, however, than that nobody take* so deep an interest in whatever relate* to the piopoeed alliance of all aorta and every name on a slugle electoral ticket in opposition to Lincoln as tbe republican leaders In general, and Greeley in particular . This can be accounted tor on no other ground than that they are entirely conscious that such an union would change the wholo Presidential prospect by rendering the defeat of Lincoln highly probable, If not absolutely certain. Indeed, tbe prevailing sentimont appctts to be that such an alliance would take tbe State from Lincoln, which would end tbe cotteet so lkr as he would be concerned. There ia an entire absence of the extraordinary helps wbich gave the republicans tbe advantage and their extra votes In I860. There are no murders of free State men in Kansas, or bloody heads in the Senate, to influence tbe public mind to an unheard of pitch. What, perhaps, was of the grettest service to Fremont was the voluuteer, constant and perfectly disciplined efforts of tbe pulpits of tho land, enlisting tbe religions sentiment and intiaming the public mind to a degree that would of itself move an empire. None of these helps have the republicans now. They have lost them all; nor hive they acquired others In their place. Added to this loss, not only la there an absolute lade of enthusiasm, but a serious bolt from the republican ranks by the radical abolitionista, under the lead of Phillips, Smith & Cx Indeed, notwithstanding tho broken condition of the democrats and disordered condition of tbe opposition generally, the prospect now is that the republicans will preaent the only example of a divided front at the ballot box. we are enjoying immensely tbe tilt between editor Greeley and Governor Hunt, who, by tbe way, baa astonished everybody by the way he lela drive at his opponent. Ue was wont to catch his ttlea with molasses to pour oil into the wounds which controversy or circumstances compelled him to make. Not so In the esse of Greeley. He cuts and thrusts without mercy, and Instead of oil ponra aalt and vinegar into the ugly wounds be makes. Whatever may be the final result of their eflbrts, there is no doubt that the "high contracting parties" who are arranging tbe proposed all lance in this State against Lin coin, are tnemseives entirely in earnest, ana tnorougniy convinced that their scheme la practicable. It ia said that the negotiation* for the alliance have proceeded so for as to remove maM <>f the principal obstacles. The electoral ticket wflflaAado up on the prlncipleof equity, at..1 ,t is haul that au'l Everett Interest will have twelve names on their own selection, the remainder to bo dl^MflMlwecn Douglas and Breckinridge. Thus fkr the gr?HH?obatacle haa been the stubbornness with which RmgUui himself baa restated a union, I until he came to place himself In the poaitlon of appear log to prefer the election of Lincoln to the recognition of Breckinridge, and of reducing the canvass to a mere struggle between himself and his rival? a contest which at oncc left the field free to Lincoln. From such a position Douglas was compelled to llee and take the more tenable one which was pressed ui>on him, to wit: that the defeat of Lincoln waa the paramount doty ot all who had not already gone Into the ranks of the republicans. This position once acknowledged, an it now la, the way la clear for a united successful effort. In this primary proposition there is coming to be a thorough anil general acquiescence. Probably It is a knowledge 01 this fact tliat gives the republicans trouble, and fully accounts fur the ext.a virulence of the Tribune. 0V*? A l.BAN Y COKRgSPOKnESC*. At.B4.TT, August 3,1S80.
