The great features of the present political campaign are beginning to stand out with a ri distinctness that even he who runs may read ^ them, and comprehend the tendencies of the ^ deep and all pervading revolution which is I* working itself out in every section of the dl Union. N For nearly twenty years parties have been without any great political issues. The policy n of the government in finance and material de- B( velopement was settled in the struggle of giant " intellects which commenced soon after the in- *i auguration of President Adams, in 1824, and 'r which for three Presidential terms ranged the r' advocates of conflicting interesU and ideas with Tl a sharpness that left no room even to imagine ? the existence of a third party. The democratic ^ policy triumphed, and its antagonist* dissolved. c confessing that the theories for which tbey 0 had so long battled had become obso- ^ lete ideas. Without a strong opposition P to concentrate it* energies and its aims, it was * natural that the democratic party should '* become degenerate. Its triumphant organize tion passed into the bauds uf minor capacities M with only private and selfish ends to servp, and a for the last dozen years their corruption has c offended the sense of nil right minded men. A temporary reaction, a few year* since. gave a ^ sudden vitality tc the Know Nothinsr organization: but the proscrlptive sentiment which animated that movement was utterly distaste- ** ful to the American heart, and its party ^ organization sank with the same rapidity with ^ which it had risen. ? In this state of things the crowning act 0 cf the rotten and corrupt democracy was con- ^ summated. The Kansas Nebraska bill, with its * repeal of the Missouri Compromise, and its n formal introduction of the moral question of D slavery as a political issue. was the fruit of the l' petty minds that controlled the democratic a organization. Its results soon began to be l' seen. Instead of giving a living issue and new ^ life to a worn out party organization, it F fostered the impracticable and worthless aims ^ of a set of ultra Southern politicians, '' and disgusted the common sense of (1 the people North and South. Professional a politicians and demagogues in the North, of the r< same petty calibre in statesmanship with the a Southern party wirepullers, seized the occasion ^ in order to turn it te their own profit. A moral t! propaganda, based on the question of slavery. ** but embracing, also, temperance, woman's e rights, and a host of isms, was preached from T pulpit and platform in every Northern commu- b nits. Klaverv. stlematlzed as a OTeat moral T evil and sin, as " the sum of all villanies." was , 1 made the object of a political crusade, and three thousand clergymen entered the political field 1 as agitators in the campaign of 1856. The mo- 11 ral sentiment of the masses, in the absence of i( an7 real political issue, was stimulated to fana. u ticlsm as a motive In political action. This movement culminated in 1859 with the V John Brown raid in Virginia. In the course r of its developement Spooner had demon- A strated how the constitution could be made ?< an abolition instrument, and every slave s! liberated by habeas corpus; Ilelper had a published his hand book of Incendiary re- il volution; Lincoln had proclaimed in Illi- il nois the Irrepressible conflict" between ii the North and the South, and So ward had pro- n nounced at Rochester his brutal and bloody a manifesto. John Brown's raid awoke the con- c servative sentiment in the North to a sense of n the danger that was imminent, and the reaction el commenced. The Helper candidate for Speak- fi er of the House was del ated when Con- v gress met; Seward returned from Europe, a; and, acceding, for a time, to the clamors <i of his conservative friends, delivered In w the Senate a speech receding from the r bmtal and bloody positions he had assumed s at Rochester; minor leader^ made concilia- Ii tory speeches in and out ot Congress, and o< deprecated the violence of Souner and other ?< pure and simple abolitionists: the fanatics wre h d. d in the local elections of ilhcde Ismon r and Wiacon.-dn. nnd brought to the verge o? tr defeat in Connecticut, and finally Seward ass m rejected at Chicago as too radically revolution ?l ary. although Lincoln, a still more radical revo o lutlonist. was foisted upon the unwitting dele- tl EDNESDAY, AUGUST 15, 1* 3D Vlitt mt the Prtare of Wales to Hew York?Uraad Metropolitan Banqwet. We invite attention to the proceeding* of a ry meeting held yesterday, at the Merchants' im Bank, to consider the character of the compliment which it would be proper to offer to the ^ l'rince of Wales on the occasion of bU visit to _ New York. The call emanated from some half dozen gentlemen occupying a foremost poei^ tion amongst our citizens for their wealth and ,e influence, and it wa* responded to in a manner a which not only marked the interest taken in j. the subject matter of the requisition, but the u confidence felt by the public in the individuals whose names were attached to it The at(0 tendance comprised an unusually large represcnlation ot our mercantile aristocracy, and the Qf ? ' ue utmost eagerness was manifested to render t0 whatever demonstration might be agreed upon in every way worthy of a community which is ,x. second to none in intelligence, activity, enterlte prise and all the other elements of commercial he g'^atness. }ir Cooeistently with the business habits and pracw tica1 character of the gentlemen who assumed ^ the initiative in this matter, it took but few ftS words to arrange a programme which promises h0 to give full eftect to the opinions so frequently 3(j expressed in this journal. In view of the dism. grace brought upon our community by the n. shameless proceedings of the Aldermen and r; their iriends at the Japanese ball, all civic co0 operation was ignored, and the arrangements ... confided to gentlemen whose social and com}D merci&l standing oilers a guarantee that we shall have nothing to blush for in connection with an event which will naturally excite a Q. great deal of attention and comment abroad. w In order that all the political benefit of which 0( it is susceptible may be derived from it, it was ;l? resolved that the demonstration should be ot a er character to elicit a free and genial interchange ln of sentiments between the statesmen of the two he countries who may be enabled to take part in ?4. it ^ ith this view it was agreed that a grand ,n. banquet at the Academy of Music would be the wnimr ?nit fi Miner crnrt-Hninn of the RPnRP IU- "J*'?* K1VKV4 ?r. ttl. entertained by the citizens of New York of le. the compliment conferred upon them by the he Prince's visit No less than ten committees tic were appointed to carry out the different arfC. rangements consequent upon this decision. One, irD composed of Messrs. W. B. Astor, Jno. A. King, 0f W. F. Hsvemeyer. Robt B. Mlnturn, Hamilton is. Fish. Wilson G. Hunt and Robert L. Kennedy, re. was instructed to proceed to Canada to tender ;ir the invitation to the Prince. Another is to m go to Washington to invite the President L.n and the members of his Cabinet. The reto tnaining committees are to have charge of ce all the details connected with the banquet, ie upon which no expense is to be spared. The decorations are to be of the most goral geors description, the parquette of the AcaLn demy is to be boarded over, and the tables exf* tended from the balcony to the end of the a- stage. On the arrangements for cooking, seve0f rai thousand dollars are to be expended, the a- building being deficient in all the requirements a- which the entertainment of such a large numof ber of people necessitates. The boxes are to be a- almost entirely devoted to ladies, and the effect o- which the presence of so many beautiful and _ elegantly dressed women will impart to the id scene will be unusually brilliant aud dazzling, w In the many ovations to which the young heir to a- the British throne is destined In the course of >ir the splendid oareer that lies before him, he will probably never receive any that will leave a in more agreeable and intoxicating impression it' upon his mind. He may, perhaps, derive from le it the conclusion that republican simplicity is, ic after all. not such a very severe and self-denyit ing a condition of things as he has been taught to believe. e It is proper to add that, although this d banquet originates with the merchants, its mana. agement is not to be confined to that body, d The list of the general committee embraces n gentlemen of all the different professions, as >e well as commercial men. This Is as it should if be. It will prevent the spirit of jealousy from ty marring the effect of a compliment which is intended to be the spontaneous tribute of a ip whole community. e, It is the Intention of the Managing Committee, M we understand, to invite General Scott to pret? side on this occasion. No better selection id could be made than that of the first soldier of iil the republic, whose gallant de?da have gained d. for him a world wide reputation, and whoae m cool judgment and conciliatory spirit hare so a frequently elicited warn eulogioms from >n Biltihh statesmen. From no lips can the words is- of welcome and of friendly greeting fall more er acceptably on the ear of the young Prinoe, and n. we only trust that the gallant chief a occupac tlons and health will permit him to discharge *t the duties which the committee seek to impoee 11 upon him. s. The judicious and discriminating spirit in e which these arrangements have been entered lt tipon inspires us with the fullest confidence as >f to the manner in which they will be carried a- out Unless unforeseen obstacles should preie sent themselves to mar the plans of the gentleie men who have the management of it, this banit quet will, we predict, be one of the most brili liant and memorable ever given to Prince or Kaiser. - Ttik Prvcrta.utt or Royalty.?A remarksIs ble peculiarity in the tour of the Prince ot ?e Wales through the British Provinces is the it punctuality with which all his movements are le made.

He W YORK HERALD, W atea. To-day the contest of fanatic fartii gain rages, and though the three thousai lergynren are not seen in the political del bo leaden tire reiterating their revolutions nd destructive appeals to excited fanaticis .ad the wildest local prejudices of the North While this condition of things has been d 'eloping in the sectional Northern party, othe if equal importance have been working out he old democratic organization, and in t south. Intent on petty ends, the political wii sullen and demagogues began at Charlesto md consummated at Baltimore, the Inal bres ng up of that organization, which had cu inued its triumphs loug after the political i iues that had constituted its life had ceased xist It was a significant indication of t eeiing in the popular heart, when that tit jonored and once mighty power *as seen rreak to pieces and fall, without a tingle wi rom any quarter, or even hardly a csminon e pression of regret. The two great fragmei )f the old organization proceeded U act oat customary forms, and brought forward th? platforms and their candidates. But the rave tailed to awaken any enthusiasm amoi he people. The partisans of Douglas ha ;ried in vain to make a strong party in t JJorth, and are forced to seek alliances ai combinations in order to preserve even a sei dance of life; while the defeat ot the Brecki idge tickets in Kentucky and Missuu ind the immerse falling off from the old dem ;ratic vote in North Carolina, show conclusiv ly the conservative revolution mat is going < u the South. It is this conservative uprising in the Sou hat new points out to the conservative i treats of the North the path they should folio ind the duty they should fulfil A series iltra Southern resolutions, got up by pet loliticians. who believe they will be great aeD in a smull confederation than they are >ne majestic and mighty, and passed by t llubama Legislature, led to the Yancey sec< ion movement at the Charleston Conventii ,ud culminated in the nomination of Brecki idge at Baltimore. The instincts of the Soul in people led them at once to suspect the <! igns of the disuuiou plotters. They Baw in t livided nominations of the old democra tarty a determination to contribute to the eli ion of a sectional and fanatical Korthe 'resident, and thus bring about a state Lings whicb would by force make them d nionists in self defence. While, therefoi hey are resolved to a man to defend tht igbts, it attacked by an aggressive Nortbe inaticism. they have determined to rebuke e\ < te suspicion of disunioniem at home, and ave to their brethren in the North the lil iity of defeating the destructive designs of tl orthern fanatics. This is the key to the remarkable politic: evolution which has already been wituessed I ome of the Southern States, and which is ri 1 many others of them. The great conserv ve vote, which comes out only on occasions nminent danger, will accept neither Brecki rige nor Douglas, but throws its weight in f or of the seemingly empty nomination < ell. But it is the weakness of this nomin on which constitutes its strength. It pr laims no policy tor future political action >nly present defence of the constitution at be Union?and thus binds men to no ne arty theories. In taking this course, the co ervative interests of the South exhibit the we for and perform the whole of their pr fnt duty to the wise and beneficial Unit -hich our fathers established, without at nimadversion or threat for the probab jurse of the North. There is in it a tri -aternity, which the conservative interests i ie North should imitate. It is then the duty of all the conservatif iteresta here to unite for the defeat an buke of Northern fanatical sectiunalisn bey should all combine for that purpose, an teir vast majorities, even in localities whei >ey are now little suspected to exist, will t verwhelmingly demonstrated in November, ie corrupt and selfish politicians and pari 'irepullerb will permit the combinations to t lade. If there is not time to bring out son cw man before the election is to take plac ben let the conservatives in every State tal t once such action as will prevent the voi hereof from being thrown for Lincoln an be revolutionary schemes which his fanatici arly will force blm to prosecute if electe 'he partisans of Breckinridge, Bell and Dough s the North all claim to be true conserv ivet, and to have the perpetuation of theUnlc t heart Let them unite, then, without ref ence to future political action, in such manm s may best conduce to the defeat of Lincol lew York, Pennsylvania.

The Chevalier Webb Rfpuoiateh the Gurnet Pi.ank ok t11e reji blican platform.? The Trilmut doctrine of free love, as well as free soil and free negroes, as set forth in the famous Gurney letter, has created no little sensation among the republicans. The journals comment upon it very freely, and. as a general thing, seem to think that Hon. Maasa Greeley has come out rather too strongly in favor of the Fourrierite and free love section of the party. The Chevalier Webb la in an awful state of miod about it. Our military and diplomatic cotemporary takes upon himself the task of keeping the morals of hia political associates in good order. Although he is eminently fitted by age. experience and associations for the office of Mentor, yet such is the depravity of the young scamps, like Greeley & Co., that they only laugh at the old chap, and go on in the paths of wickedness just the same as ever. The Chevalier is so terribly cut up by this Gurney letter, and so annoyed by the damaging effect which it will have upon the party prospects, that he loses his temper and scolds away like an enraged fish wife, calling the Tribune philosophers filthy and licentious fellows, and declaring that nice, clean republicans of the Courier school will have nothing to do with such naughty people, who prostitute the press, and cause the upright Webb to come to grief. We can see why the Chevalier sets up this terrific howl. He hopes by abusing his confrbes of the Tribune to relieve the party from the stigma of its pestiferous social doctrines. But this sort of thing will not work. Such affairs as that of the Gurney people er ne as the logical results of the doctrines accepted by a very large proportion of the republican party. They also accept Lincoln as the representative of the new social movement by which the overthrow of all laws which interfere with entire freedom of action for men and women?white and black?is to be practically initiated. The fact stands boldly forth in the writings and speeches of the radical abolitionists, in which category Lincoln must be reckoned, and the Tribune's publication of the Gurney letter is only a pieoe of corroborative testimony. The Tribune has been true to the tenets of its party, while the Chevalier Webb endeavors to cloak them under a veil of morality altogether too flimsy to deceive any body for a single moment The Modern Greeks in the Takkee Atukxs.? We bear that the Puritan city is on the tiptoe of expectation with reference to the advent in Boston of the Benicia Boy and his attendant apostles of muscular Christianity. This auspicious event Is to take place on Friday next, and it is evidently regarded as most im' portant The distinguished modern Greek will hold his leveee in a temple of art, the Boston Music Hall; his gladiatorial arena will be pitched over against the statue of Beethoven, and the Isthmian games will take place directly under the august nose of the great composer, whose works cannot be properly illustrated outside of the Trimountaln City. We presume that a select company of musicians will perform the Ninth Symphony between rounds, and the Handel and Haydn Society might give the "Hallelujah" chorus as a finule to the show. President Felton should be on hand with a salutatory in Greek, and, as ail the Boetonians understand Latin, there will be no difficulty in obtaining a Ciceronian valedictory. There are poets, too, on every corner, so that ptrans are as plenty as pork and beans. Thus the affair may be made truly classical and Bostonian?the terms are synonymous. In order still further to maintain the antique forms, we perceive that the "Boy" is to hold a laws mmsrlsllw fnr 1 artios snH nhilHrun Thiers* is to bo a sLictly crinoline "Muscular Mutineer?no men are to be admitted on any av count to this delightful affair fur the fair. It is related in ancient history that patrician ladiea were among the most constant attendants at the Olympic games, and in Rome they watehed the death throes of the gladiators with eager eyes and parted lips, when strong men shuddered and turned awuy. Juvenal satirizes a noble Roman lady for throwing herself at the head of a fighter who was old, ugly and battered aimoet into small bits. The women of modern times have degenerated from the antique muscular standard and faint at the sight of a Uttle blood. But now that the new era ef muscular civilization has commenced. the women must indurate themselves. They must be ail Amazonian maids or Spartan mothers. The strong minded woman?the well informed woman?the woman who wears blue spectacles, knows mathematics (plain and mixed), and don't talk nonsense -abounds in New England, and she is the proper person to i be chosen as the pioneer of the new movement. Why shouldn't we have muscle-women as well as muscle men ? In the good old days of Merry England, when they banged men for sheep stealing, women fought in the prize ring Why should we not revive those halcyon days, and < redeem the age from the stigma of degeneracy : Let us hear from the modern Athens on this l vastly important subject. The metropolis ha? ; already spoken. W? wait now for the rural districts. As Ot.r> Stout.?Mr. Benjamin F. Butler, of Massachusetts, a delegate to the Charleston and BaHmore Conventions, has been making a speech to his constituents defining bis antt-Douglas course of action In said Conventions, and how the factions doings of the Douglas managers hronirht about the terrific explosion of the etitnlturtihle democracy.

In Mew Jersey the BreokInridge men and Bell men have fused upon a Ci/uimon electoral ticket, while the Douglas faction have set up a ticket of their own. Uouldnl fuse with the " Breckinridge disunionlata" cm any terrr .'. In Pennsylvania a nominal fusion haa been agreed upon between the Breckinridge and Douglaa democracy, but acme of the Douglaa men have kicked out of the traces. In New York fusion and confusion are nearly equally mixed, but confusion will probably carry the day. Gen. Gustavus Adolphus Scroggs, the right-band man of Millard Fillmore, haa lately made a flaming speech for " Lincoln and victory," and yet he still exercises the authority of calling a Slate Convention of the subordinate councils of the late great American party. It will thus be seen that our political parties, here, there and everywhere, are inexplicably mixed up, and that the various elements opposm) to Lincoln are ficrhtino- mnre vtnlonHw against each other the a against the comtnoa enemy. Who could hare supposed that one little experiment In Congress for the sweet voice of the South could have done all this mischief? And yet the whole of it may be traced to that little Presidential experiment of the Kansaa-Nsbrnska bill. With that act began the dissolution of the democratic party and the Americas party, and the uprising of this present overshadowing anti slavery republican party. But the end is not yet We are only approaching the beginuing of the end; for the indications of the day are that this revolutionary condition of parties is but the prelude to the most tremendoua revolutionary events. AN iNTEBEiTDiO QUESTION KK SHIPOWNMW.? A very curious case, which cannot be devoid tf interest to the owners and masters of ships, occurred recently in the port of Bremerhaven te the American bark Sarah Park. According to law a seaman voluntarily discharged by a shipmaster in a foreign port is entitled to throe months' wages, and the United States Consul is required to demand the same from the captain before furnishing his clearance papers. In this CAse, however, a seaman was arrested and imprisoned by the municipal authorities of Bremerhaven for wounding a citizen of that place while drunk, by pushing him of the plank, and the captain of the bark, after a fruitless application for his release, was compelled to go to tea without him. The United States Consular Agent, acting under the instructions of his an-perior, the United States Consul at Bremen, demanded and obtained from Captain Pendletow the master of the bark, three months' wages for the imprisoned seaman, and twelve dollars das to him at the time of his arrest, which sum the shipmaster paid under protest, because unless he complied with the demand he could not obtain his papers from the Consulate. On arriving in England, it appears that the captain laid the case before Mr. Campbell, the United States Consul at London, and Mr. Davy, i the Consul at Kewcustle-on-Tyne, both of whoa gave as their opinion that the demand for extra wages in behalf of an imprisoned seaman would affect a ship unjustly, and should not have been made. The case is a peculiar one, and we think should be laid before the Secretary of State, and the opinion of the Attorney General as te the interpretation of the law be obtained apoa it. It is at beet a question of doubtful justice; and it appears to us that if a seaman can obtain three monihs' wages, and procure a release from bis obligations, upon deserting his ship in a foreign port, by committing some slight breaoh of a municipal law, Involving perhaps a merely nominal penalty, it may be very hard apoa ship captains and owners. Om Douglas Democratic Stats Goktsktton.?This body, which meets at Syracuse today. will be charged with a very grave reepoaalbllity. It will devolve upon this Conventioa to decide whether the forces in this State opposed to Lincoln shall be united or divided la the November election. The Regency orgea at Albany has been throwing out some sign 111cant threats of a confirmed rupture between the Douglas and Breckinridge factions, and this is generally expected. The Breckinridge Convention of the 7th appointed a Committee of Conference to sound this Douvlas Conventioa upon the subject of a coalition, and if that committee be decently received there may be a treaty of peace. The Boll and Everett mw stand ready U bitch on; ao that everything depends upon the game of the Regency. The only chancee of anything good from them are their chancee for the epoile. and they appaar now eo exceedingly slim that Richmond, Cagger and Confidence Casaidy may prefer to rarntdei the citadel to the enemy at once, and trust to tb" generoelty of Thurlow Weed This day will eettle the question.
