At two o'clock it had fallen to a difl rcnce of about six degrees with the ?ame time on the day before. Ia the afternoon there was a good deal of air stirring, and a dense mass of cloud, which came up about three o'clock, added much to the comfort and coolness of the city.

This return refers to the city proper only, comprised within the limits of Manhattan Island. If we take the Metropolitan Police district, which is composed of the counties of New York, Kings (Brooklyn.) Richmond and Westchester, all of which may be said to comprise New York, tbe population will turn out to be close upon a million and a ? half. Thus we shall count as tbe third city on tbe globe in population, exclusive of Canton, , Jeddo, snd It may possibly be one or two other ! Asiatic cities. London.

It is settled that the one hundred aad twenty electoral votes ol the South will be CMt against Lincoln in the approaching Preaideatial election, and that accordingly only thirty-two of the one hundred and eighty-three electoral vote* of the North are required to defeat him. There is a popular majority against him in New York, New Jersey, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Indiana, Oregon and California; and to can y all these States over his head it U only necessary that the conservative forces opposed to this disunion sectional republican party of the North should combine against it But how is this to be done? In the outset, supposing the defeat of Lincoln to be the paramount object among the supporters of Breckinridge, Bell and Douglas, we broached the plan of a system of fusion electoral tickets among them. But it was aoon apparent that this scheme of co-operation was, as yet, impracticable. Next, under the impression that the South would be a unit in support of Mr. Breckinridge. we advised a general rally in the North to his standard, as the shortest way to secure the Northern ba- i lance of power. But the late southern | elections hare dissipated this idea. Not jet disposed to give up the ship, we next recom- , mended the withdrawal?bj an agreement among themselves? of Breckinridge and Lane, Bell and Everett. Douglas and Johnson, and the recommendation bj them of a joint stock ticket upon which all their supporters might combine. But this proposition appears to have fallen upon the candidates indicated like the voice of a man upon the winds or the angrj waves of the swelling sea. With an overwhelming popular vote in the manufacturing and commercial State# of the North opposed to Lincoln, the several parties in the held to which his defeat is the first necessity appear to have surrendered themselves to the idea that the case is foreclosed, aud that Lincoln is already elected. We are not yet disposed to concur in this conclusion. On the contrary, we believe that Lincoln may still be defeated. The means are at hand; there is time enough yet to put them into shape for practical action, although there is no more time to waste in beating the empty air. The late Southern elections show that the Bell and Everett party in that section has become a nartv of nositive nower?a ere at nartv for (he future, whatever may be the issue of this election. It has already achieved enough in the conservative States of the South to recommend it to the cordial support of the great Union masses of the conservative States of the North. Should Lincoln be elected, what will become of the clashing factions of the democracy? They will most probably be absorbed in other party organizations, as were the fragments of the whig party after their crushing defeat of 1852, and as the remains of the American party have been absorbed since 185G?their- first and last national battle. On the other band, this Bell-Everett party, founded upon the Union as it is, including the organic institution of slavery in the Southern States, is the natural antagonist of disunionispi in both sections? of the republican pirty, which Beeks to abolish slavery in the South, aud of the Southern fire-eaters, who make the indefinite expansion of slavery the test of their submission to the Union. We have had sufficient manifestations of the strength of this new conj stitutional party in the South to satisfy us that * there it will hold; and it is upon the ticket of ' this established nucleus of a great party in the future that we now call upon the independent | l nion loving men r?f all p*itic3 and claws in t!,.' North to rnlly. Our conservative financial, commercial and manufacturing cities, in thlj movement'should at once load the waj. I'ndor the Immediate excitements resultirfg from the John Brown foray, we had numerous Union meetings here, there and everywhere, to reassure the people of the South that their Northern brethren were not all f nntical. cut-throat, abolition revolutionists. ! Those demonstrations did no harm; but now they would do much positive good. Let the good work. then, be commenced, as usual, in this commercial metropolis, and upon the basis of the Bell and Everett movement, as the most practical Union foundation of this crisis, and we may soon have such a response from all sides as will indicate that Lincoln is by uo means already elected. We are gratified to hear thai in this city and State the Breckinridge men are very favorably disposed to ? fusion w ith the Bell and Everett party. Such a fusion has already been consummated in New Jersey, and we expect the same thing in Pennsylvania. Let the Bell and Everett party push forward their cause. Thousands of con?er\ atire old line wtjigs. American.', democrats. and republicans, ten, may be brought in by!mielyand energetic ac?ioo, who may be otherwise left out among the vaste ammunition of the campaign.

SA' Tut LtNOOUN OlUiAN ON FlUCk, L?V fc..?A NaW Plane in nut U*.ii blic vn Pt.atkok*.?TV pet metropolitan organ of ' Honest Old Abe" has printed a letter, purporting to have been written by the wife of John Henry Gurney, a well known English banker, a member of the Imperial Parliament, and the aon of Joseph John Gurney, who came with hit sutler, Mrs. Elizabeth Fry, upon a philanthropic auti slavery mission to the United States some thirty years ago, and was warmly received by the Garrisons, Molts, Tappane and others of the game clique, the predecessors of the 7'ritnmt philosophers in the Bame line of business. Mrs. Gurney, it appears. has eloped from her lawful husband, the banker before named, and taken up with her groom?whether he is a white or a black man is not distinctly stated; but that does not signify. Mrs. Gurney has chosen to cafly out in a practical way the peculiar theories of a school of philosophers with which the Tribune has long been identified, and it is quite in accordance with the doctrine of the eternal fitness of things that her defence should appear in that iaiienol fKn Aeernn nf tka 1 ammaqI 1?ka?f*? *n all JVUAUHt M<v VI^Ml VI IUV lUlglOl 11 VVI IJ AM OU matters, social as well as political. The Tetter itself is one of the most extraordinary publieations of this most remarkable age. If it 1b authentic, if it has really been written by the proper bands of Mrs. Gurney?and we hare the TWbtme's statement to the effect that it is genuine, and no proof to the contrary?this curious document marks a new era in the social history of the race, and affords a marked example of the inevitable tendency of the doctrines which the Tribxnxt philosophers have advocated during the last ten or fifteen years. Commencing wikh abolitionism, the new lights of Spruce street passed on to Fourrieriam, socialism, agrarianism, spiritualism and free-loveism. Their avowed platform is free soil, free farms, free speech, free labor, and fiee men, of all colors and conditions. To that comprehensive programme it would appear they purpose to add entire freedom for women. That L? Mrs. Gurney > platform. Her letter is by far the cleverest exposition of the doctrines of free love, as taught by the philosophers of Berlin Heights, and endorsed indirectly by the 7ViInine. The fact is that the Guraeys, and all the rest of the Exeter Hall school of philanthropists, are er, rapport with the abolition party on this side of the Atlantic; and, therefore, it was eminently proper that Mrs. Gurney should have selected Lincoln's organ as the medium whereby her apology for her escapade might be laid before a sympathizing and an appreciative audience. It might be ns well, however, to ask. as the election of Lincoln is considered by many to be a matter beyond reasonable doubt, whether or not the Gurney plank is to be definite ly engrailed into the Chicago platform? Shall we hare, in addition to free negroea, free women ? l>oea the lion. Mama Greeley, when he takes hie seat in the Lincoln Cabinet, intend to lay down the free love doctrine as one of the bases whereon the govern- ( ment is to be conducted? Is Mrs. Carney's letter to be considered as a semi-official declaration of the principles whereupon the new administration is to conducted? Its publication at I the present juncture must be considered in the light of such a declaration, and it will be the duty of the conservative opposition to use the very extraordinary document which the Tribune has promulgated as a weapon against the p irty which Is endeavoring to still further excite the unhappy sectiwnal differences which have aiiten among us. The first step anterior to the redaction of the republic to soc'al and political anarchy has already been taken. The question now before the country is: how much further shall these things go? The Gurney letter gives some clue to the solution of this problem. From it we are able to obtain a better idea of the Ti ilnme'a notions as to "freedom" than bv anv other means. The miMtlnn is con: bow far Hon. Kmu Greeley and his candidate. Old Abo Lincoln, are willing to go on the Giuney platform* Let them put themselves right on thin record without further delay. Tn? Cxysra?Growth axd Rmotbcih or mi U.vm p States.?The census returns are rapidlj pouring into Washington, and bj the first of .September, the limit fixed for their reception, it is expected that tbey will be fully completed. From the figures, as they at present show, it may be confidently assumed that the total population of the Union will not fall short of thirty-two million*, being an increase of nearly one-third since 1K50, when the last census was uiken. The history of no country, either In an(iect or mcdern timee. has exhibited the same extraordinarily rapid multiplication of its people. and in none bare the agricultural and industrial resources developed in their progress kept such even pace with their numerical growth. There are not. we will venture to say. on the surface of the globe, any thirty two millions of people who poseses the amount of wealth and comfort enjoyed by the inhabitant* of these United State*. Our cotton crop I* in itself almost sufficient scurce of national proaperlty; but in addition to tbe income which it brings us, we have that derived from supplying the rest of tbe world with the surplus of our breadstuff* after ow- own want* are provided for. Owing to the inflnr* variety of climate that Is to be found with 111 win <?riiioriai we are not dependent, like other nation*, on any one clan of production?. and art therefore exempt from the wholerale calamities u which a drought, a froet, or excessive mine. frequently subject them. If there 1a a fail u re of the crop? to one part of the country, they are generally made up for by their superabundance In another: and tVum our people are never made to feel the sufferings and privation? arising from an exclusive reliance on any one of earth's products. In mineral wealth Providence has been equally bcuntiful to us. Our coal fields are ten times the extent of those of Great Itrltaln or of any other nation, whilst as regards the precious metals, no estimate can be foimed of the riches that lie hidden In the auriferous regions which yet remain to be explored In our outlying States and Territories. Thus blessed by nature, and aided by the perseverance and energy which are the dominant traits of the national character it will not be surprising if the census now being taken should exhibit results far more striking than any that have as yet been anticipated. In the growth of the metropolis alone we have an example of the enormous strides which o(\r populati in has been making without people being aware of their exUeit; and In the new cen si.s we expect that we shall find many facts e ,' ally illustrative of tbs unexampled fecundity in Bombers *ud wealth to which frovi * # rURDAY, AUGUST 11, 186( deoce seems to bare destinod us.

TlIK COTNCIIJfKN SiiniKINO TIIK Jai'-VNKSr Swindle.?'The Board of Oouncilmen are fighting aby of the Japanese swindle. The debate upon that unparalleled scheme to cbeal the city treasury was set down for yesterday, atter baring been postponed from Tuesday, but the Councilman did not rentore to touch It at the meeting last evening. It was pWfeed over as a thing that never was. It is evident that the Councilmen intend to let the matter lie in abeyance until the public attention is directed away from it, and then to let it slip through without attracting any particular notice. Tbey are mistaken, however, if they suppose that we are going to let it die out, for we are determined to see it to the end. If it be, as It is universally believed, a gross fraud deliberately concoeted, it should be squelched; or if it be a legitimate claim for moneys honestly expended upon the entertainment of the Js pao?M* unoasay, cne puouc nave a rigbt to know the items which make up the bfil. There can be no objection to a liberal expenditure upon an occasion such as the visit or the Japanese Ambassadors, for it was an event fraught with the highest importance to the commercial interests of the country. If it oost twice as much to entertain them we would not complain; but if $105,000, or any part of it, was put to any other use, then we have strong objections to make against levying that sum upon the taxpayers; just as we object to the Corporation charging $2,500 for the expenses of a committee who visited Boston the other day on some sanitary mission, which occupied about a day and a-h&lf, and could not have cost more than two hundred dollars at the outside. That the Councilmen intend to pass this appropriation for $105,000 sooner or later we

have no donbl, and when they consummate the act we look to the Grand Jury to aifl the whole matter to the bottom. Netos from Uit Natiosal Capital. OCX SrECIAX WASHINGTON DSSI'ATCH.
