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. Before he left England the programme >n of his journey was Uld down, and the time ;b fixed for his arrivals snd departures at the dlfiy ferent points, and in no Instance has there been a- the slightest deviation from that time table, if id we make one exception, and that was that he of waa announced to arrive at 8L John*. N. F., on 8- the 25th of June, and the fleet arrived there on te the 24th, having created the Atlantic in fourit teen daya. In every other instance he haa been a' exactly up to time, neither too soon nor too >n late. On the programme we And hU arrival at
