Arkansas will choose a Governor and two members of Cong roes. Tbe democrats seem to be united upon Richard H. Johnson as their candidate for tbe executiTe cbalr, against Henry U. Rector, who is also a democrat, running without any regular nomination, and who, although be does not represent tbe opposition party, will nevertheless be supported by tbe Bell and Everett men. Hon. Thomas I C. Hind man has tbe democratic nomination for re election to Cor gross is tbe First district, without any organized opposition against him. hdward W. Gantt is the democratic n< m.nee in the Second district, to take tbe place of Una. Albert Rust, who has nvent'v rendered himself somewhat obnoxious to the main body of tbe democrats. An opposition candidate named Dr. Mitchell is alao running in the Second district. All the democratic regularly nominated candidates will unquestionably be elected. The only State officer to be chosen in Kentucky is Clerk of tbe Coort of Appeals, for which office there arc three candidates. The lines have been distinctly drawn between the Breckinridge and Douglsa factions, and both wings have their candidates, upon whom the strength of each party will be exhibited. Clinton UcClarty is tbe regular democratic nominee on tbe Breckinridge side; R. R. Boiling is put forward by tbe Douglas branch, tud Leslie Coombs is the candidate of tbe Bell party. The vote last fall stood for Governor as follows:? Democratic 78,187 opposition 87,271 Giving to the democrats a majority of nearly nine thousand in the State. That party now being divided, it is reasonable to predict the success of tbe I'nionites in this contest. In Missouri there are four complete political organizations, all striving for the mastery, and each apparently sanguine of success. The following are tbe names of tbe candidates on the different Slate tickets:? Breckinridge. Douglas. Governor Hancock Jackson. Cla.borne F. Ja:kson. Lieut. Gov Monroe Parsons. Thos. C. Reynolds.

In the First district, Albert Todd la running as the representative of the Union party, and in the Fifth district, Thomas C Staples is stumpuig In his own behalf, Independent of all parties. The contest in the St. Louis district, between J. Richard Barrett, democrat, and Francis r. Blair, Jr., black republican, has been waged with uncommon fury. It will be recollected that two years ago Mr Barrett was elected, and took his seat in the Bouse of nepreseniatives at the last session of Congress; but near the close of the session be was sent home by s party vnto 1 of that body, and bis place given to Mr. Blair. In 1850 the popular vote for President was as follows ? Buchanan ' 58,104 F llmore 4* ,624 Since the last I'residential ram pa go there has been no election held In Missouri which In the least Indicated the slate of parties. In T"sai three officers on the State ticket are to be chosen.

The North Carolina Election* OIK RALEIGH CORRESPONDENCE. Raleigh, N\ C., August 1,1800. The Qubernat?rial Contest?Past Position qf Parties? Change of the CpposUion?T\e AVui Local Issue?Kenneth Raytwr Oul for Breckinridge, 4c. To morrow we go into our election for Governor and members of Assembly. That it will eventuate in the success of tbe democratic party I have no doubt, though I am also certain that the opposition will poll a very heavy vote and greatly reduce Ellis' minority of two years since? which you will remember was oror 10,000. The present contest is on purely local issues, of great interest to those immediately concerned, end to none others; issues that have not a particle of national policy in their composition, and whose support, or the contrary, cannot be said to de pend on any national partisanship; issues, moreover, which were made up and determined long before any of the Presidential nominations were made. The opposition in this State is peculiar. It was tbe old whig party, and on its dismemberment became Know Nothing. Beaten on that ground, It cast around for some idea, some principle, some fallacy, anything by which it might break down the democracy Anything w.is good and laudable, provided it riitocd and broke up democracy. Without principle?for they clung to mere dead issues?and with nothing to lone, they resolved to flu for popular favor by holdtrg out tbe most tempting baits that ingenuity could suggest Tbe first was distribution of tbe public lands?a measure upon wbicb the Ntate had been canvassed nearly a quarter of a century before, without success. This was the issue, revived two years and a half ago. upon which Judge Ellis and Duncan McRae, an ex-dcmocrat, entered upon the gubernatorial onmpalgn, and which resulted In the great est democratic victory ever achieved in the State. It was evident that something else must be tried, and during the session of the last Legislature a proposition was brought forward by tbe opposition to change the sys tern of taxation on slave property. Hitherto Hits species of property baa contributed to the burthens of the tliate bv a tax per eontio Tats, It was contended, was an un just discrimination in favor of that species of property, and thus Increased the burlbeu upou the small property holders wl.o do not own slaves. A proposition was introduced in the legislature that slave property should be taxed on its assessed value, which baa given rise to a heat, d debate here, and or this Issue the preset contest has been made. It is well adapted to win a large popular vote, tt It is agrur.Jiiiam pure and simple, being nothing more nor leas than a scheme to chanyo the taxation from its pr< sent re?tings le the shoulders ul the slaveholders. The issue of this contest will not be any indication of how matters will go in tbts State n the November ek-olion, for thouih Kills, the democratic candidate for Governor, will probably carry the Stale, It will, no doubt, be by a reduced majority. Itot there are tbouaarols who will to morrow vote for Toole, the opposition candidate, that will n November vote for Rrvltinridge and I.sno. As a proof of this 1 will stale that Kenneth Raysor, who 1 as long been one of the roost ptominent leaders of the old w big and Know Nolbiog organisations, has determine! to go for the Brock.orIdge ticket In this he will be fol lowed by uisny others, aa that ticket Is regarded aa the only one on which the Buuth ran safely unite. Tewt Presetting at Central Park* Tie first ol a scrloa of rellg one meetings rs held yea ' terday afternoon, under a large tout "reeled at the junction of Rroadway, F.gbtb aven'ie, Central I'ark and Fifty ntnth street, for the i urpoee oTcarrying the Ooepel Into the .mmroae crowds who travel in that direction on their way to the tempting atmosphere ot the rural suburb! beyond. The movement Is under the supervision of a number of churches in the city, and la simply a continuation of the meetngs ?> common a year or two ago, of which the Fulton street prayer meeting Is an example. It is tx-lteved that much good can be done upon a thoroughly organised plan, through the concert of several denominations, and we were Informed that ampie funds would be contributed fbr carrying on the good work o auspiciously commenced. If the scene there yeeterday is any :nd,cation of future success, there Is .title to apprehend n this r. apart but the novelty of the occ**.om evidently drew q ; te as many Into the lent as any actual dos.re to participate in the services.

Mr. Forrest's last appearance in this City was at the Broadway tbea'.re, about three years ago, and be gave after that time, we believe, only a few farewell representations in the provinces. His engage ment with Mr. Nix on is for the term of six mwtbs, and he will play, not only at New York, but also at Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore -ad other, of our principal cities, enacting all of his original, and, wo understand, one or two new characters. It is not stated whether this Is to be Mr. Forrest's farewell engagement, bnt Uie probabilities are that New Yorkers will not soon have Another opportunity of seeing their tavorite actor In his beet rot-i. The bare announcement of Mr. Forrest's appearance will doubtless create a sensation rivalling the greatest with which New York has recently been visited, and Mr. Nixon will undoubtedly achieve a success far surpassing that of any of his former enterprises, is this his latest, boldest and most popular coup de theatre. From present lnd ications the approaching season will fkr surpass In brilliancy any which New York has witnessed fbr mnny years. Although the attractions at our principal places of amusement hare been but slightly varied during the past fortnight, there is little or no abatement in the interest manifested by the public, and each of our leading theatres has generally been well filled every night during the past week. At Laura Keene's "Our American Cousin" is In tall tide of success, and will be continued until further notice. Mr. Jefferson's managerial career has thus far been decidedly successful, and he will doubtless make an appropriate finis of the season with the popular comedy now on the beards. At Winter Garden the Ravels have been astonishing and ueugniing large audiences nignuy during me jw iwinighl. To-night will b? given, for the flret tune, It* fairy pantomime entitled "Magic Pills." The Florence* oonunenoe the aeventh week of their aummcr season at Wallaskt to night, when "Dombey & Son" will bo presented for the laat time during the seaaon. Xboee who bare not aeen Mr. Floraeoe aa Captain Edward Cuttle, mariner, should avail themaelvoe of the present opportunity. Mr. and Mr*. Florence will, during the week, appear in several of their favorite characters. At Niblo's Garden Nixon's equestrian troupe comes in for its share of public favor. The "Fox Hunters' Jubilee" is announced for to night, and every night daring the week. At the New Bowery theatre Mr. E. Eddy will appear to night in the thrilling Indian drams, written expressly for Mr. Eddy, entitled "Miantinimo, Tha Last of the Xarragansetta.1' The bill also embraces the Scotch drama of "Wallace," and a laughable afterpiece. At Barnuni'a, in addition to the extensive cabinet of curl leities, several attractive features sre announced. Bryanta Minstrels announce a "Grand Gala Opening" to night, and off. r an attractive bill. Mr. Sam Co well boa been engaged at Canterbury Hall, and will make his drat appearance to night.

The exercises of ths occasion were introduced by the singing of the Thirty sixth Psalm. An ekxioent and impressive prayer was offered by the Rev. Dr Ferris, Chancellor of the New York L'slversily. The line solo. ' The lord is mindful of bis own," from Menddaudbn'a "St Paul," wan then sung.

All His works exhibit a regular gradation, but all derire whatever importance or Interest tbey may have from their relation to redemption. The preacher went on to consider the subject st length, and concluded with the following cla'm fbr the office of the Christian ministry ? f or thl- reason we magnify the offlco of the Christian minister, because of the intimate relation which It bus Uios to this redemption.

Consecration of a Jewish Synagogue. INTDllflTINO AND IMP08ING C?R*MONl?8?ADDHkB-iES BY REV. PB. HAPBALL AND JllV. MBSHKd. ISAACS AND BONDI. The oonrecrntlou services or the new synagogue of tbe congregation B'nai Israel, situated at the corner of Kor syth and Stanton streets, took place yesterday, which, according to the Jewish mode of reckoning time, Is call ed the 17 th day of Abb., 6020. The building was formerly occupied as a place of worship by the Baptist do nomination, and bas been remodelled for tbe purpose to which it Is now devoted. In the oentre of the synagogue is located the el mtmor or reading desk, where the cfcuort (correapondlog to the minister in Christian churches) officiates. It is an ele rated platform, seven or eight feet square, surrounded by railings, w tu steps l>'adiug to it on either side. N.-ar the front of it is the inclined desk, covered with a man tie of red and gilt satin, upon which are laid the holy books used in divine service. In that portion of tbc building where in other churches the chancel and altar are located Is the ark. Hi re, in a semicircular recess, the Hi-hoi or sacred scrolls of ths law of Moses are kept. The whole device of the arc Is in imitation of the portico of a Grecian temple. An orna minted architrave projecting over the top is supported by two tluted columns, which are surmounted by Ionic capitals and rest upon octagonal pedestals of marble. A flight of three steps, arranged in a semicircle, lead to the platform In front of tne ark where the lectures (or sermons) are delivered. Between Ave and six hundred members of tbe congregation (the number whicb the building comfortably holds,) assembled yesterday, to witness and take part in tbe cousecrative ceremonies, which were under the direction of the Rev. M. R. De Leeuw. The male portion, according to the Jewish custom, occupied the body of tbc synagogue, and the females tbe galleries. On either aide of the ark were seated the Rev. Dr. Raphal), Rev. J. J. Lyons, Rev. Mr. Isaacs, Rev. E. L. Goldsmith, and Rev. Mr. Bondi. At half past two o'clock the Rev. Dr. Raphall, Chief Rabbi of New York, who was dressed In a long flowing gown or toga of black silk, ass imed tbe !alrtte. a cloak of white satin with purple and black stripes, and commenced the services, which were oooducted in the Hebrew tongue. Going outside tbe synsgoguc, be knocked at the door and exclaimed ? Open the gates of righteousness for me that I may enter through them to praise tbe I>ord. To which tbe choir, gathers 1 at tbe reading desk, responded ? This Is the gate of the Lord, into which tbe righteous shall enter. The doors were opened end the chazan chaunted:? How awful ia this place! To which tbe choir again responded:? This Is none but the house of God, and this is tbe gate of heaven 1 Tbe cAomm then ascended tbe reading deak, and, assist ed by tbe choir, sang :? bow goodly are thy tents, O Jacob! tby tabernacles, O Israel! And in the greatness of thy benevolence, will I enter thine house: in reverence of thee, will 1 bow down towards tbe temple of thine holiness. O Lord1 1 have loved tbe habitation of thine house and the dwelling plaoe of tby glory. I, therefore, will worship, bow down, end bend th? knee before tbe Lord, my Maker. And I will offer my prayer unto thee, O Lord, in an acceptable time in thine abundant mercy, 0 God, answer me in tbe truth of thy salvation. At the conclusion of which a procession of little girls to tbe number of thirty, between tbe ages of tire and ten years, dressed in white with blue sash is and spangles, with baskets of flowers in their hands and wreaths of green leaves upon their beads, entered the synagogue, and marching to tbc front took up a position on either side or tbe space between the ark and reading desk. The officers and honorary officers of the congregation, covered with the talrffc, then brought the nacred swells of the Holy Law to the door, ar.d thence proceeded to the Ark while the (baton and choir sany- ? Blessed if lie ?ho cometh in the name of the I/ird! We Mciss you from the house of the lord. A low rumbling noise was then heard, and the heavy curtains in front of the urk nnd the circular door* glide 1 back, disclosing the reccw in which the scrolls were to be deposited. These scroll*, fire In number, with two roller*, upon one of which the iwrcLment folds a* It comes ofl the other, couta n copiesjof the live book* of Moves, and were beautifully encased in velvet, satin and silk, with gold and (liver ornamental ion. The aeren circuits around the synagogue were then commenced, the children strewing the bearers of Die scroll* With (lowers each lime they passed thein, until thu floor beneath * covered wi;h the offerings from their lit I tie baskets. The Jtatan and choir cliaunled hymn-', and ' as tho procession arrive* before the unveiled ark each time the bearer* were relieved of their wilting burthen [ by new aspirants to thl* highly esteemed honor. At the termination of the eeveoth circuit the sacred scrolls were carried up the steps and placed In the ark. The lighting ot the perpetual lamp, a duty devolving upon ii.c o!,>>i nu mber of the rongrifgatIon. then took pice. The lamp, which was after the Fashion of thoee use.I by the ancienis. with the taper at one ettremity, was suspended I in front of the ark, upon wh!:b its never dying light is intended to shine. The cAaton then t hauirt-d? Blessed art thou,O lord, our God, King of the Universe, who hath preserved us alive, turUiued u| and brought us to rntoy this season To w'bj- h a response was made by the congregation After which the Ittv. It. Rai-iiau., dinning the taltt* as before, advanced to the platform in front of the ark, wn:ra i?utr tin u'a:upa w in tue u?rm 01 um garment, and reverently kissel It.

It is now four years since an accidental circumstance brought me to this place. I happened to be at N agar*, and learning that an Invalid friend was slaying here I took the cars en the Great Western line and in luaa than three quarters of an hour was seated beside hun under the plazta of tho Stephenson House. I had purposed only remaining a few hours, my condition of health not being such as to require the powerfully stimulating waters of those springs. My tlrst impressions of the place were not calculated to induce tne to depart from my resolution. The company ware nearly all on crutches, and of young people there were only about half a dozen,and these compulsory attendants upon their gouty papas or rbeumstic mamas. And yet, notwithstanding this apparent absence of attractions, I found myself at the end of a fortnight dreaming away my time very pleasantly at St. Catharine's. The fact was that it was one of thoeo places which grow upon one insensibly. The clunato was delicious, the surrounding country picturesque and full of variety, and even out of the aillictcd elements, to which I had to look for society, there was much to be gleaned that was genial ami companionable. Since that time St. Catharine's has altered greatly. From being a mere resort tor inrulids it has assumed all (be features of an important watering plaoo. Crowds flock from the British provinces for the sake of the society which it affords, whilst the rapidly increasing reputation of the waters brings Invalids from all points of the Union, even the most remote. St. Catharine's is, in fact, growing into the same degree of estimation amongst the medical men of this continent that Chrlsbad occupies In the other bemisphe'c. And it well deserves this. More patients go away benefitted from bere than from tbe sulphur, iron and magnesia springs to which American inralids are in the habit of resorting. The intensely saline properties of the water, combined with ths powerful minerals which It holds in solution, impart to it at oocc the properties of sea and medicated baths Unlike tbe sulphur springs, which enervate and render the patient more sensitive to oold.it fortifies tbe system against atmospheric influences, whilst It st the same time eliminates from it all morbific aouroes of irritation. Tbla year the number of visiter* exhibits a large increase upon last reason, which was the beet since tho openmg of the spriugs The hotels and boarding bouses are ail crowded, and still guests continue to pour in. Thia is in a great degree to be accounted for by tbe efforts that arc beiug made to add to the attractions and amusements of the place. The proprietor lias wisely arrived at the conclusion that something besides a mere sanitary reputation is required to place these springs on a permanently prosperous fooling Invalid- tool, us well as other people, the necessity of amusement, and even though they may not be able to participate actively m what is going oo, they take an interest in it as spectators, wbicb helps to divert their minds from the contemplation ot their own ailments If it be true that half the ills that tl?-, h is heir to owe their origin to tho overtaxing of tho brain or to local influences, it is evident that their cure Is as much to be Bought in chuuge of -cenc and ploaxura blc excitement as in medical treatment and the remedial processes supplied by nature through the agency of mineral waUrs. For this reason the German springs are ren doled as attractive as possible to invalids. Medical men abroad bestow us much attention on the mental as on tbe physic al condition of their patients, and this is why, perj haps, the German baths have the reputation of effecting < so many more ourt-s than American springs, which have I precisely analogous properties. At the former from the ! time lbo patient ri-es in tbe morn eg until be retires rot it nifbt, hi* regimen, exercise, occupations and I amusements are all uncer tbc constant supci vision of bta medical attendant Mental employment of a pleasurable and heallkrul kind forma an imjNirtant feature In bia course of treatment, and public enterprise faddy tup plies tlie mcane of giving efleet to bia doctors' pr?*cci lplions.
