The telegraphic announcements of the result of the election in North Carolina indicate a complete revolution in that State in favor of the Bell and Everett party. Retnrno nearly complete from Wake county, which includes the city of Ituleigh, show that Pool, the opposition candidate for Governor, fins made great gains, and succeeded in carrying the county, which in 1^6 gave Buchauau 789 majority over Fillmore, out of less than twenty-three Lundred votes. If the returns from other portions of the State bear a similar aspect to those already received. North Caroliua may be safely set down for the opposition in Nove mber next. The steamship Great Eastern, hence for Annapolis, was seen off Cape May yesterday morning, at half past four o'clock. By the arrival at thi- port of the brig Golden I-ead, Captain Johnson, from Minatitlan. we have advices to the 4th nit.

The Prince of Wales landed at St. John. N.

By a communication in another column it will be teen that a number of British residents of thia city have requested Mr. Archibald, the British Consul, to call a meeting for the purpose of adopting mesures for extending to the Prince of Wales, on the occaaion of his visit to thia city, some appropriate demonstration of rcspect aud welcome. In accordance with the request a met'Ttmc of British residents will be hold at the Astor House on Monday evening next, at eight o'clock, for the purpose of considering the subject referred to. The Board of Councilraen at it* session yesterday, refuaed. by a vote of seventeen to six, to concur with the Board of Aldermen in appropriating the *100,000 for defriuing the expenses of receiving the Japanese. A motion to reconsider subsequently prevailed and the matter will sgtun come up for consideration on Tuesday next. A serious accident occurred on the I.ong Island Railroad about eight o'clock yeiterday morning. The morning fast train from Syoseot started at the usual hour for Brooklyn, and when opposite a place called New Brooklyn, in the Ninth ward, the locomotive struck a cow, aud was thrown from the track-Was so great that two baggage ran were forced upon the locomotive and dashed In pieces. Two passenger cars were also broken, but not wrecked to such an extent aa the baggage cars. Several passengers were injured, but it was thought that none were killed. The fireman of the locomotive was instantly killed, and the engineor severely injured. Men were sent from the depot with all practicable speed to clcar away the wreck and afford other necessary assistance.

We published yesterday the upmh of Mpovernor Foot*, at Saratoga, on the politl^u\ questions and leaders of the day- As the speaker and his policy for the present can* paiga constitute a fair type of the professional politicians and their measures in the impending crisis, an analysis of his character and position will convey an instructive lesson to all Mr. Foote L a man of mark. He has held numerous offices in the gift of the people, ranging from the representation of a district in a State Legislature up to the Governorship of a sovereign State, and from that to a beat in the national Senate, the highest deliberative body the world ever knew. He has lacked but one short step?the limited one that intervenes between the Senatorial seat and the Presidency?of attaining the highest honor that a nation of freemen can bestow. His pifrate and public career have combined to give him a wide practical acquaintance with the wants and hopes of the country. Born in Virginia, the State of great memories, he has filled J-.?l -e . .111... I. Ulaiiutmil Uir UUllCD Ut ? t:UKm AM California and Tennessee, and acquired by long personal Intercourse an extensive knowledge of the Central, Northern, Em tern and Western States. In bis public career be has taken part in some of the greatest political contests that this.country has witne??ed> aQd is not without honor for his dee<fs. Such is the speaker. His delineation, therefore, of the requirements of the country, the present political divisions that agitate it. and the inevitable results that will attend in a given case, are not the echoes of mere hearsay, but they are the fruit of a wide scene of practical observation. Ripe from these labors, he comes into the present contest as a working politician. He recognises the great fact that a united and strong sectional party has been built tip by a combination of the social prejudices, the misled moral real, and the baneful religious fanaticism of the people of the Northern States. His practice in statesmanship, his knowledge of the different sections of the confederacy, and the findings of bis common sense, all warn him of the dangers in which the triumph of such a party must involve the highest and dearest interests of his fellow citizens and his country. But if these were wanting, he has the acknowledged aims of the leaders of that party. Lincoln, its head and front to-day, proclaims the social superiority of the North, and that the Union cannot exist between States half slave and half free. Seward, its master spirit, repeats the announcement of the "irrepressible conflict," and vauntingly boasts that "where freedom is there Is my home."7 Spooner, Its lawgiver, demonstrates with Irrefutable logic, If you accept his black republican premises, that the constitution is an abolition instrument sufficient for the utter destruction of the slave half of our Union. Greeley, its mouthpiece, flaunt| ingly announces his hatred of the social organi1 wotirtn nf (Ka Qnn i Via ft* SfafAfl an/1 that Ka nrUI I ' "labor for its eradication from our own and all I other countries so long as I live.'' And these j revolutionary, destructive and atrocious senti1 ments, are repeated in the ears of Mr. Foote, and before the whole country, by hundreds of presses and speakers of the black republican party. They are not lost upon him. Ho feels the danger in every nerve, and in the speech we have now before us he makes acknowledgment of the convictions of his practical experience in these words:? Much oppoaed m aome to the South wore to aeceaaion, and though tome of them might b? inclined to prote?: ugainat the act of breaking up the I'titon, to the erect of Lincoln'* being elected, It ?u hi* duty to aay, with hi* bund oo hi* heart, that if I incoln be electa! <m the plat form CD which ba la running, all the effbrta of all the ! i n men North and South would not be (ufflcient to ( rtTcot the destruction of tb? confederacy. With this confession of his conviction of the duty of defeating the election of Lincoln, with the honors he won in the battle for the Union in 1W0 still hanging worthily upon him, what is the practical tenor of Mr. Foote's late speech at Saratoga and his present labors as a work ing politician ? They contain no word of rebuke for tl* fanatics who would carry an " irrepressible conflict" to the shedding of torrents of fraternal blood, nor one well directed effort to the defeat of a candidate whose triumph he believes to be so inimical to his country's good. It cannot escape his practised eye that the conservative masses of the people outnumber by far the fanatics, zealots and fomentora of local prejudice: and that if they are not divided in their action during the present contest they will not only save the country from the fate he deprecate#, but will consign Northern sectionalism anS fanaticism to a? deep a grave as that in which he helped to inter Southern folly and disunioAisin ten years ago. Vet with the inevitable result? of division and bickering among the conservatire interests standing plain to his view, he heaps abuse upon his fellow conservatives, and counsels war to the hilt with them, simply because they will not accept bis personal preferences in the selection of their candidate: and that, too, when the one he would have them adopt haa not a probable chance of being supported by the electoral vote of one State in the Union. Where, then, is the logical connection between the words and deed* of Mr. Foote?between his long exercised statesmanship and patriotic. anil the necessities of hla country, la this hour of danger* Unfortunately, such a connection docs not exist; and he, blinded to the fact by his personal feelings, docs not see that be is laboring to bring about itiA rr>rr romll irHcV tia u?iir<u hii ^nnnlrrmfln that ho deprecates with all hL? utf&rt. Like Mr. Foot*. there are hundreds of men. who hare occupied higher or more modest posit ioM of political leadership, that at* working for the election cf I.lncoln while pretending to be opposed to him. They are like lookout! upon a ship navigating in dangerous seas, who, perceiving the peril, crj out, "Breakers ahead! breakers ahead! pull. boys. pull!" thus rushing their craft upon the destruction manifest to their view. No one of them lift* hla voice to cry out, ' Wear ship;" and the logical conclusion is that their heart* are with the pirates upon the shore, who are displaying luring signals and fal^e lights to lead I them to their toils. When the hour comes to plunder the wreck, these false pilots, these short ylghted or treacherous political leaders, will be found sharing with the pirates they pretended to detest. The only logical termination of the carecr upon which Mr. Foote and hi? fellcw parl'Mins hare entered upon, is In the sectional ar.d fa"nf!cM c*irp cf the republic EW YORK HERALD, SA PaKTT COKTK OCTION9 FOB PllISrDK'JITUL PcBfosics No Nkjsd ot Thkm Thls Tuul?We feel authorized to announce to the money contributors of all parties and factions concerned, that tbej will be acting w isely this time to treat all applications for money tor Presidential purposes in this campaign with a flat refusal to give a copper. There b< no necessity for any such contributions to the cause of "Old Abe Lincoln," and all moneys bestowed to aid in the work of electing either Breckinridge, Bell or Douglas, are moneys foolishly thrown away. The result of the election is a foregone concluT X ? 1? ill V- -1 A-J A. ?? ? tv..4 muu. iJiiicoia YfUi uv circu'u; uvi vmy au. uui from present appearances be will walk over the course. How can a beleaguered city stand against a formidable outside enemy with the forces of the garrison divided into hostile parties aad fighting among themselves? The democracy are involved in the wars of the roses. The Douglas faction wear the white rose of York, and the Breckinridge faction sport the red rose of Lancaster. There are also six Richmond! in the field, exclusive of the Dean of the Albany Regency. And with what an unction do the Douglas and the Breckinridge factions pitch into each other. If we may believe the one side, Breckinridge is a disunionist, a conspirator, a secession tire-eater, aad Mr. Buchanan's administration is the most corrupt despotism the world has ever seen; if we may credit the other side, Douglas is a demagogue, a traitor, an abolition incendiary in the flimsy disguise of squatter sovereignty, and is only playing the game of Van Buren of 1848. Thus, on the side of Douglas we find his organ? and orators. North and South. East and West, almost entirely overlooking the existence of Lincoln, while they are pouring their shot and shells, grape, cannister and musketry, front aud flank, Into the Breckinridge democracy. And the same noios gooa witn tne urecKmriage faction, though not to the same extent. Meantime, the Bell and Everett pipelayers, confessing their weakness before they have made any trial of their strength, have been bobbing, hobnobbing around, patching up in one place a trade with the Breckinridge men, selling out in another place to Douglas on trust; here seeking to sandwich .themselves between Breokinridge and Douglas, und there urging on the fight between the two factions, so that the Bell and Everett ticket may be slipped in between them. If there were any positive assurance that Breckinridge would carry the whole South, then a hundred thousand dollars or so might turn the tide of battle in Pennsylvania and save the day; for the politicians and newspapers there may be bought, like anthracUftoal, by the ton, although, as compared wH (be coal, those politicians are very poor stuff. Bat it now appears that the chances are against the unity of the South, and so it would be folly to waste money to rescue Pennsylvania. The Chevalier Forney, we believe, got somewhere near a hundred thousand dollars from New York in 1856 with which to save Pennsylvania and our glorious Union; and, though he burnt his vouchers after the election, it is admitted that he bought up Know Nothings enough in October to settle the hash for Fremont. Tom Ford, row Printer to Congress, was at the same time sent out to Pennsylvania with a puree of twenty thousand or bo: but it wm too light, and, If we are nut miatakcn, Tom's vouchers of his disbursements never did come over five thousand. And so Tom lost the election in failing to look as liberally after the floating newspapers and politicians of Pennsylvania as Forney with the funds of the New York committee. But with the democracy on all sides going to the dogs, what i-> the use of money to them In this campaign ? The thing is fixed. The republicans have it all their own way, and the documents from their distributing committee at Washington, and Greeley's documents, are all so much waste paper. They might just as well go at once to the grocer 's at two cents a pound, as to be sent all over the country, lumbering up the malls, and only to be sent at last to the grocery. In short, while it in folly to waste money for Breckinridge, Bell or Douglas In this canvass, upon wandering stumpers and loafers who can do nothing, it is ugeless to be throwing money away for Lincoln orators, organs, clubs and vagrant minstrels and Greeley's documents, when it is clear that Lincoln can do just as well without them. The democracy have arranged It that he shall be elected, and the raising of funds for his cause or any other cause Is sheer nonsense. Thk Eucction df North Carolina.?The election returns from North Carolina, which we publish in are mixed un,4 between the vote for Governor and Legislatureand are not sufficiently complete to found any decided opinion upon them as to the result But there can be no disguising the tact that pre Bent uppmruucen ?rt* ominous h regard* tile hopes of the democratic party The gain of the opposition In some counties U certain: and if, with only one democratic candidate in the field, the election is considered doubtful, what are we to expect when the democratic strength Is divided between two candidates? The prospects of the democracy ia North Carolina arc, tA say the least, clouded by the intelligence of this election, to far as it has come to hand: and if UiO event should prove ad>cwe w&eu ?omplete figures reach lis. it may be regarded as symptomatic of a general revolution in the South, brought about mainly by the disgust of the people with the fire eaten of the school of Yancey andKeitt.who hare been unfortunately tni.ttd up with the Prockinridare ticket, But before we arrive at any definitive conclusion we must see some further returns. Political Reports kor toe Awx-uncn Press.?We hare received a communication from the chairman of the National Democratic Committee of the State of New York, complaining of the biased and unfair character of the telegraphic reports for the New York Associated Press, particularly from Albany, where they are furnished by one of the associate edl tor* of the Alias and Argm.

Jocrx a lis*?Dec at of Political.?We learn from all quarters that the merely political papers throughout the country find it very hard to get along these times. They are in a very poor plight, and can with difficulty keep going. The campaign papers have Btarted without a campaign, for as yet the battle has not fairly begun; while as for the campaign pamphlets and documents, they are lying in piles on the shelf?there is literally no sale for them. The truth is that the tone and language of the political papers are so dirty, abusive and uninteresting to the masses of the people, that very few of any taste will read them at all. There appears to be a greater general apathy aa to the sayings and doings of tvAlWinSano (Kan Kai avAr Knnn vHfnaafipH ha. fore pending a Presidential contest. But while the political papers are decaying in influence and circulation, on the other hand, those journals which devote themselves to general literature and news and the legitimate mission of journalism?the papers which analyze all parties and politicians, and give the position of each from day to day without predilection or prejudice?are thriving in proportion as the merely political papers decline. We can ' ppeak for ourselves in this regard. The increase in the circulation of the IIeraxd for the past six months has been greater than within any Btated period before; aad the increase goes on steadily. and promises to continue. The same is true of literature generally and of the arts. They are growing and flourishing with vigor, although we are on the eve of the ' most important Presidential election ever held In the republic?an election without parallel in its issues, and without precedent in the mode by which it is to be fought. The public are so disgusted with the course of the politicians that they take no notice whatever of them, but look on with'indifference and see them abusing each other in all kinds of vile language. As far as the people are concerned, never was apathy mere universal before a Presidential contest than it is now. The New York Dkmoctucv.?The demoralized. disorganized and disjointed democracy of New York, were never in a more pitiful condition than they are at this day. They have long been divided into two factions, but now they mnst be subdivided into four?two for Breckinridge and two for Douglas. One of the Breckinridge factions is under the control of Collector Schell, member for New York of the National Democratic Executive Committee, holding over from 1856; the other is under the management of John A. Green, chairman of the Hard Shell anti-Albany Regency State Committee, appointed at Syracuse last fall. The original Douglas faction is under the management of the Albany Regency and Tammany Hall; and the other Douglas organization is that of Mozart Hall, which is engineered by Fernando Wood. It will be perceived, too, from the resolutions adopted at Mozart Hall the other evening. that while this detachment of the terrified democracy repudiate John A. Green's organization, and accept that of the Albany Regency as the legitimate State organization of the party, according to the judgment of the Charleston Convention before it exploded, they still declare that the democracy of this city (of Mozart Hall) "will sustain itsalf in this crisis, despite the corrupt influences of either the New York Custom House or tlie Albany Kegency. The Mozart 11*11 democracy, after adopting these resolutions, will, of course, steer clear of the Breckinridge State Convention of the 7th Instant, and will go op to the regular Regency Douglas Convention, which meets a week later. The contenting Tammany Ilall delegates will go up at the same time, and will doubtlees again declare the Mozart delegates intruders, and demand that they be turned out of doors. Taking the test of our last December election, however, between Wood and Havemeyer for the Mayoralty, Mozart, according to the rule of ' popular sovereignty," will have the legitimate claim to represent the party of this city. The issue will be about aa perplexing to Dean Richmond as was the Gordlan knot of the Baltimore Convention. His sympathies and affiliations are with the dirty Indiana 'of Tammany, while the majority of the city democracy is largely against Tammany. Richmond, in feet, will be placed somewhat like the jackass between the 1 two bundles of hay. If he should decide in favor of Tammany, he will only bring down upon that poor old rickety concern a pair of snuffers that will snuff it out entirety; and vhould the decision be in favor of the Mozart delegation, then the dirty old Wigwam will be compelled to sell out and close up, and become a defunct institution. Such are the little rival side shows of the New York democracy around the grand menagerie of the republican party. Talk of carrying the State of New York against Lincoln, with fonr democratic factions and two or three little fussy Hell-Everett cliques, all wrangling among thenwejyffl; The Idea is perfectly absurd. Talk b? harmony among these conflicting elements! As well talk of brotherly love among the fighting fflCUOB* at a DonnyWook fair, assembled for the express purpose of breaking each other's 1 beads, But. at all events, in the Mozart delega tion at Syracuse Dean Richmond will have a hard nut to crack.

Ward's Island is not the proper place for ship fever patients; they should be Isolated in the floating hospital, or somewhere apart from patients suffering from other diseases. But what is to be done if * there is no money to support a quarantine hospital of any kind? The Board of Health should take some action in this matter, and immediately, too. This is no season of the year to trifle with contagious disease in anv form: and if the Board of Health hare do fun da to appropriate to the purpose, the merchants and citizens generally should take the matter in their own hands, and raise money enough to keep the floating hospital in operation during the hot months of summer. j ? Reception or the Prince ov Waijbsj in New York.?The following piece of intelligence has been aent to ub for publication by some of the parties concerned:? The foreign residents of New York are Baking arrangement* with the LeUnds, or the Metropolitan Hotel, to give a grand reception and ball in honor of the Prince of Wale*. It will surpass the great ball recently giren by the city authorities to the Japanese Embas-y. The com pony will be the most select and elegant ever assembled in the United StaUs. Now. we should like to know why n ball to the Prince should be given by the foreign residents exclusively, or why any invidious distinction should Le made between natives and foreigners. Do a handful of English residents mean to monopolize the Prince among themselves on the ground that they are " most select and elegant ?" What right have they to anticipate the action of the people of New York, or to exclude those who are as respectable as themselves from participating in the compliment. Let us have no such narrow affair as this. It would be mean in the last degree to the American ladies, who know how to appreciate the distinguished stranger as well as English women or any other women in the world. The proposition to make the ball emanate from foreign residents in the city is, moreover, a reflection upon American hospitality which ia entirely uncalled for. The Spirit of the Campaign?Henrt A. Wise.?Among a mass of correspondence ex niDiung uie spirit 01 ice campaign, we puDiisu j a letter from Norfolk, Va.. giving the views of j Governor Wise. After a long silence the Governor baa recovered the use of his speech, and though he has not spoken himself in public, he has delivered his sentiments in private to his son, and authorized him to pronounce in favor of Breckinridge and Lane. It would have been more satisfactory if Mr. Wise had spoken himself; but as Uknsa prevented him, he did the next best thing that could be done under the circumstances. The position of affairs io the South, the divided and distracted state of the democratic party, the fear that if two democratic tickets should be run in Virginia and other Southern States Bell and Everett would obtain the electoral vote of those States, has hitherto paralyzed the tongue and pen of Wise, who has been always so prompt in his decisions and so swift in action. Of all the Southern leaders he is the most quick in perception and the most rapid in his political combinations. Ills silence was, therefore, ominous and significant. He speaks out at last: but, strange to say, just as he does, the news from North Carolina speaks in a different tone. If the State should go as the returns from the election so far indicate, it is of very small consequence what Governor Wise says or does, for as North Carolina goes the greater part of the South will probably go. If the election in that State should be in favor of the Union party, it is but the prelude to the success of the Presidential Bell ticket in November next, and the evidence of the strength of the current of revo lotion which cannot be stemmed by Wise or any of the other democratic leaden in the South.

Amm m is~etiU (tend a reasnant of those who In the last century wKmhM wad partookof the Jey ud eothsslssm with which your Royal Highness' grandfather, the Dak* <rf Kent, waa receivsd on his vidit to the infant city, upon the fooader of which, In token sT royal approbation, great beneflu had bean reeeatly conferred by the royal charter of hia Majesty 0? vn the Third, and with just pride we declare to your Royal HighDees that the feelings of loyalty and attachment which led to the shores tbe founder- of this city, still eminently characterise the entire population of thill colony. It b ' our prayer tbst your Royal Highness will bare a propitious termination to the t>ur through her M^jwtjr^ North American dominions, in which you are now engaged . and we hope that you will vouchsafe to aasure our gracious Queen that petce and contentment are found among us under her rale, and that lore and attachment te the pei son and crown is tbe common sentiment of her devoted subjects in this the commercial capital of her province of New Brunswick. The Prince receircd the address personally from W. R. M. Burtis, to whom it was handed by the Recorder, and returned the answer direct, instead of through the Duke:? GnrnJtifilf?I thank you with all sincerity for the address which you bare Just presented tome, and for the welcome which it conveys to the colony of New Brunawick and the important city of which you are the municipal representatives. When my grandfather,the Duke of Kent, paid to this place the visit to which you makeae gratifying a reference, he found it but little more than a village. It ia my good fortune to receive on the aame spot from a city?which affords a striking example at what may be eilected under the Influence of free Institutions by tbe spirit and energy of the British ract? these demonstrations of love and loyalty to the Queen, which at this moment are reflected upon me. Your oommercial enterprise has made this port the emporium of the trade of New Brunswick, and as the noble river which flows into it brings dowa for export tbe products of your soil, so I trust the vessels which crowd its piers will reward your successful industry with the wealth of other lands. I am not unmiadfnl of the origin of this city, and it will be a subject of pride and pleasure to me to report to the Queen that the descendants of lis founders have not departed from their first attachment to the crown of England, which brought them to these shores. The city Is illuminated and fireworks are being aet off. There la a great crowd in the city, and triumphal arches and processions are the order of the day. His Royal Highness has been much pleaaed with the reception aad decorations of the streets. VISIT OF TBI PRTNCI OF WAUS TO NXW TORJC? DEMONSTRATION IT TOT BRITISH RX8IDKN1*. To E.
