The speech of Senator Seward a' Boston, which we published yesterday, i? an Important landmark in the contest now before us. and. though bin words were brief, they are full of evil omen to the highest and dearest interests of this whole land. A significance is added to them by the past conduct of Mr. Seward towards other Presidential candidates of his party. When General Scott wtw brought forward in IS."2 Mr. Seward refused to mipport him, and went through the campaign in silence, because he knew that he i was in every way a national and conservative man, who could not be governed by radical revolutionists. In 185C his part in the campaign was also an inactive one, because be knew that Colonel Fremont was a Southern man by birth arid education, and that if elected his government, too. would have been a conservative one. Bnt now the case is changed. Although hi* party rejected him as ita Presidential candidate, It has brought forward a man who confessedly could neither read nor write till he was twenty-cne, and consequently ?A lrnA?

Helper. Greeley. Phillips, Garrison and their coadjutors and followers in the Massachusetts school. It tneuns revolution of the most thorough kind, the interpretation of the constitution as an abolition instrument, the reorganization of the federal Courts under abolition Judge?, the issuance of writs of habeas corpus for every slave, the guarding of these Courts in the Southern States by armed bands of negroes, and the thorough and complete denial to fifteen States of this Union of the right of self government. An administration of the federal powers in such a spirit cannot but produce the moot disastrous agitation and contest between the North.ern and Southern States of the Union. The South will be forced to act in self-defence, and every tie between us will be gradually severed until we ar precipitated into a civil war. for which, in bitterness and bloodshed, no parallel will be found in history. In the face of such a future, the South is nobly evincing her determination to rebuke at j home tue men who moan disunion, and to leave to their brother conservatives ia : t!n? North to ileal with the fanatic m>ctionali*ts ! here. When it corner to the wont they will take their stand in defence of their right*; but they hope and trust that the great body of Northern conservative* will not permit, through their divisions, a fanatic minority to succeed in their preedy clutch at power. The duty oi the honeat con.-erv-atives in the Northern State* Is. therefore, plain before them. The d.inger is imminent, and they must unite upon a ?in^le electoral ticket in every State, not to elect ?ny one man, but to prevent a minority from casting the votf of such State for Lincoln. It matter* not who it is cast for, be it Breckinridge. Bell. Donglaa or Houston; tha happy remit will be secured by a popular condemn tl >n of the odious and dangerous theory that tbere i* a "higher law" than the constitution mJ the statutes. of which every man is a judge In himi-lf.

Should they not unite for the common good they consign themselves to oblivion, and a scattered and divided people will mn*>mber them with a just indignation when the bitter fniits of their Insane bickering* in this time of larger rip??) for the country. \ EW TOKK HERALD, THU The Bm? from F.orop<? Intervention vt tbe <>r?-wt I'owrrt in gj-riii. According to the advices rec?ived by the Persia :ind Parana the Convention for an armed intervention in Syria has been finally agreed to and signed by the European governments. The force is to consist of twelve thousand men, oue half to be furnished by France and the rest to be supplied by another Power when required. The occupation is to be a limited one. the period fixed for Its duration being six months It is to be conducted in unison with the views of the Porte, credit being given that government for a desire to put a stop to the persecution of its Christian subjects. It will be readily seen, however, that in its limitation as to time, and its faith in the sincerity of the Turkish government, there is more than the usual amount of diplomatic hypocrisy. No one believes thaf a six months1 occupation by foreign troops will have tbe effect of over- ' awing the hostile sects; nor is it for a moment ' supposed that difficulties will not arise with ' the Sultan, or rather with his Cabinet, as to the manner and form in which the intervention is < to be carried out. All the precautions possible have, to be sure, been taken against any one of 1 the high contracting Powers taking advantage ( of any misunderstanding of this sort. A ? clause has been inserted fci the cou- 1 vention declaring the intention of the ' aignataires not to seek lor exclusive f influence or privileges, and no doubt such are ' the present sentiment* with which they all ' enter into this arrangement. It must be ob- ( vious to every reflecting mind, however, that ' there never wa.1- a diplomatic agreement which ' was more liable to the disturbance of its condi- ' tions, or which offered less chances of its being 1 honestly carried ouL ' Let us look at the facts. By tbe terms of ( the Convention. France, which hus already 1 despatched troops to the spot, is to have the 1 field to herself, so long as the 6ix thousand men 1 who are to constitute her proportion of the stipulated force are sufficient to overawe the fanatics to whom these atrocities are due. It may be safely concluded that France will not acknowledge the necessity for a further reinforcement to have arisen until she is herself prepared to take the consequences of the infringement of the stipulation which limits her contingent to the nnmber of men specified. In the meanwhile, she will have time to consolidate that ascendancy over tbe Turkish government und tbe Turkish population at which her diplomacy has so long aimed. Tbe circumstances under which this arrangement has been agreed to exhibit as plainly its possible the fears entertained by tbe other go- ( vernraenta on this head. Russia endeavored, as tbe condition of her conscnt to it, to obtain permission to interfere on behalf of the Greek Christians is other parte of the empire; whilst 1 | England insisted on the limitation of the inter- I vention to the briefest possible period. The c one stipulation was overruled because of the ' additional complications to which it was oer- * tain to lead ; and the other was assented to only 1 because France, having anticipated the action of the Conference by the despatch of troops to Syria, felt indifferent us to a condition the fulfilment of which could only be determined by events. The insertion, therefore, of this clause in the Convention. n? well as the language of Lord Stratford de Redcliffe in Parliament, prove that, notwithstanding the reiterated friendly assurances of the French Emperor, the distrust and jealousy in regard to him, which found expression in Lord I'al mors ton's recent speech, continue undiminished among British statesmen. It L> not that they hare any actual fears of aggressive intention of invasion on his part. We do not believe that amongst any class of Enplifli politicians such apprehensions have been fur a moment entertained. What they dread is not his augmentations of the military and naval strength oi France, but bis political genius, his diplomatic adroitness, his in- . cetsant activity and watchfulness, and hi* efforts to stimulate the industrial and commercial energie-of France. They *ee in all this the prospect of his raL-ing the French empire to a position of political influence and greatness far transcending that of Great Britain. And. in fiict. thus far all his measure* have tended to th'a result No war ha* b<>en undertaken, no diplomatic conference ba< been held, no treaty ha- been ratified that has not in some way or other contributed to the glory and material ad\antage of Franc*. The occupation of Home led to the humiliation of Austria and th?- sscendancy of F rench influence in Italy; the Crimean war contrasted the military weakness and the internal \ ices of the administrative system of England with the perfect organization and immense military resource* of France; the campaign against Austria secured for her Nice and Savoy, whilst it won for her chief the prestige as an able general, which be had so long coveted: the promptness with which Ijf has profited by the disturbances in Syria marks the-ame wonderful prescience with which he has hitherto anticipated the course of political events, and secured to his people the advantages that the b>>sitation and slow action of his rivals have missed. Whilst helping to give to Italy the unity which wai alone wanting to constitute her a great nation, and which, since the decline of the Roman republic. she now for the firyt time enjoys, he has guarded against the ch.inoe- of her future in- , gratitude bj obtaining for Sp.iin the privileges i of a first class Power, thus raising a counter- j f acting influence to that which Italy may here- ( after exercise aeiinst Urn in the diplomatic j councils of Europe. With the same prompt ( appreciation of the ndvauU. :> s to be gained y by a show of benevolence to royalty under a cloud, he no sooner h- irs of the evacuation of ^ Me??ina an<l the landing of (loribaldi in Cala- ( i bria than hp despatch^ a man-of-war to Na- j pies. to be in readiness to off-T shelter and the ^ ' means of escape to the royal famny. Thus, , 1 whil-t he has been the main instrument in bringing about the triumph of revolutionary principle* on the Continent, he conciliates the ] good will and esteem f his brother sovereigns j by providing for the p? m>nui safety of their , victim* \ It is plain that, in the preM-nt stunted condi- l tion of statesmanship in Kngland. a ruler en- i dowed with this wonderful sagacity and energy i cannot be other than an object of suspicion 1 and dislike to the small politician-' who control 1 her destinies They see France dally elevated \ by the genius of thi.? one man a step nearer to 1 the pr<-ud pre eminence that their own country | has hltherle occupied.

V:r.GDii.v ant> ILit.txam)?Hot Work Among Ht DEMocRAcr.?The Breckinridge (official* leciocracy cf Virginia held a State Convention o-day at Charlottesville, and the Douglas demo-acy meet in convention at Sta; ntoc.

The Breckinridge faction are cry nnsious for a fusion; but the Douglaa facion appear to be resolved upon fighting out beir fight with the fire-eaters, hip and thigh. The jrobabilities are that there will be a Breckin idge electoral ticket and a Douglas electoral

icket, between which Bell and Everett will nalk over the course in November, to the tune >f, perhaps, as much as twenty thousand plurality. It is barely possible that a fusion ticket may >e patched up; but the universal conservative knithern reaction going on, as indicated in the ate Kentucky ^pd other election?, it is now ipparent, will settle the business for the Virginia lemocrasy in November, do what they may. rhere are thousands of Virginia Douglas men K-ho. if they cannot have a clean ticket of theLr >wn, will vote the Bell and Everett ticket tgain.*t the fire-eaters, or etay at heme, and let Jell run through by default- ?uch a result as he defeat of the democracy in Virrinin Will Smlaail V. a *? .unit finv auuvw* i/r c* invu.uvu, or that State bh* never y<?t. oa any occasion, or inder any pressure, given her vote against the lemocratic party. She had a narrow e-cope rom the sweeping tornado of 1810. but she leathered the storm ; and Bince that day, down o her last election for Governor, the opposition ?et themselves up like tenpins. only to be ;nccked down. But lust year Goggin. opposition rundidate for Governor, cut down the democratic majority of 00.000 for Buchanan to f>,000, showing that this Southern reaction hod been commenced some time before the late Charleston Convention. rutting this fact in the same pipe with the present divisions and distractions of the democracy in Virginia and everywhere else, the -moke tinells very Btroag of Bell and Kverett tobacco, oi the Mount Vernon brand. Set down Old Virginia for Bell and Kverett. Who could have believed it a few months ago ? Who can loubt it now ? But this ground-swell against the Southern Ire eating democracy fctcps not here. The Douglas taction of Maryland hold a State Conrention in Baltimore to-day ; and as Maryland oted for Fillmore, against the united democray, she will, of course, vote for Bell against the livided democracy. Thus Virginia, Maryland. )elaware, North Carolina. Tennessee and Kenucky are all drifting in the same direction to a egular smash up of the Southern fire-eating denocracy. To go no further here into Southern >robabilitiefl. is not this enough to rouse up the lonservatives of the North to active co-operaion with the Union men of the South to save he country ? And is not the Bell and Everett ticket the ticket for the work? intrir.rts ov the Bi.ack Retcbucan M.vna;eps.?The nomination for Governor f this state is the subject of keen intrigue just now unoog tbe black republican leaders. It has been said that the Greeley party and the Weed party uA both for the renomioation of Morgan, the present Governor; that the delegates also torn thin city are in his favor, and that there is rery little doubt of his success. Let nobody be too sore of this. The fame ran paid and believed about the nomination of William H. Seward for President, and yet he ras cheated out of the nomination by the same arty managers who have now taken llr. Mor;an in hand. Both the Weed faction and the Jreeley faction are trying to cheat each other. >nd to humbug Morgan into the bargain. The Chevalier Webb, who is very leaky of political lecreta. lets out enough to show that there is n icrew loose somewhere. He is opposed to the lomination of Morgan because he vetoed the bankrupt law last year. The Chevalier Is coninuall v watching for the passage of a measure of his kind, that he may take advantage of It. The ast bankrupt bill was in 1840, which he ex>ected would whitewash him from top to toe; ind last year he was again greviously disappointed at the upright conne of tbe Governor, irho. being an honorable merchant, could not :onsont to the approval of a bill which relieved men in business from the obligation to pay their debts. Flence his hostility to Mr. Morgan, md he will defeat him If he can. Indeed, there L? good reason to believe that both the neea ami ureeiey cliques ar? deceiving nun, so that they may slip in some friend of their own it the hint minute. Tbe Greeleyites hare a aTorite in their eye whom they expect to play into their hand*; and the Weedites bare an)ther instrument in view, whom they hope to im to good purpose: and while they both talk Morgan. they secretly mean somebody else. This appears to b? the more likely from the op that Webb throws out to Greeley -tbe lomination for Congress from Westchester md Rockland. Mr. Greeley may possibly tibWe at this bait, though nothing 1?"? than he office of Postmaster General will satisfy lim If Lincoln should be elected. Itut tbe treat contest in this State is not for members >f Congpw, or eren for the Governorship, but 'or members of the State Legislature, who will Save the control of the plunder of the public l?y railroad scheme* snd other netarious jobs. The maniffers raise a dust about tbe (."orernorhip in order to blind the public to their real bjects. Of course they want a very different tind of man from Morgan?a man afW their >wn heart, who will do all their bidding: but hey xre ten times more exercised about tbe election of Assemblymen and State Senators, Kith whom they want to be silent partners in be thriving business of robbing the public by aw? n business even mora prosperous and profitable than the slave trade in which they ire so heavily embarked.

Stiucusb, Aucut li, IBM. Thtf has been a gloomy <l*j for Tammany. Bee doiegatloa haa been virtually repudiated by the Stale OoarMiitoB, and Mozart Ball has again boec placed upon m equality with her, and been admitted to equal boMtB ! I ud tnSaeoc* la the Convection . The actios of the Convention has been in reality , triumph over the Richmond ud Csggcr dictetlea. Yesterday Richmond resolutely refused to recognize j Mozart, or to consent to any act that would (ire eclat to Wood, whom be designated aa a dangeroos acquisition to any party. The final result, which la a I great triumph of Mosart, baa been principally broaghft <J about by the discreet action of the Mozart deiegatioa, j which has been well managed by Ben. Wood. Tammaay Buffered severely, as much from the Insignificant character or ber delegation?which does not present a single name of rmpcct&ble ability?as from the indiscreet action of Clanty and Kennedy, who threw themselves bask cpon the old dignity of Sachemdom, and made a miserable failure. After their admls&.on to the Convention the Mozarten I made a good point. When Clancy ^requested leave Par Tammany to withdraw for consultation, Bradford jumped up an>' gave tbe Instant concurrence of the Mozartera la . the actic r of the Convention This took tho country deli-pa*.es by storm, and was greeted ? ith warm ap?>laufie. , Clancy's silly blunder broke down the last barrier^aod | after tbe delegates from tbe rural districts did not hesitate to express the opinion that Tammany was piayed cat. U will be a hard matter for the Regency ever again to redeem their promise mads to conciliate Tammany, that nest year Wood and Mozart thnuld be slaughtered, and Tammany again admitted to cjckstff communion. It <s confidently stated that the Mozart delegates are only playing a game, and that tbe majority are already > laughing at tbe Regency, and declaring that all they wanUd whs endorsement that would deprive Taamsay nominees of tbe advantage of assumed regularity la ^ city nominations. Tbe result of the admission of both seU will probably be to insure double nominations al 1 over the city, and tbe opening of a regular auction matt for State and electoral votes by all who secure nomina, t'.ons ror any o"io from constable to alderman or mens- 1 > ber of Assembly. r Tarr.iraay leaders, as Clancy, Kennedy tad OXoeCs openly dec Are Kellr will not get ten thousand votce la the city. ^ The Bel; committee have taken possession of Deaa's I parlcr In ti.e Syracuse Boose, and the Caggsr [ electoral cemm.ttee are meeting In an adjoining " , room. Strjker, wbo was last year krocked frost the platform of tbe Convention by one of bis soft friends, H 1 quite recovered from lameness, and acts as message carrier between the two rooms. 'Bunt, or more probably i Lorenzo Burrows, will be put oc the electoral ticket aa one of the electors at Urge. Tbe Convention ran smoothly to day, for no one wanted combat loss in so desperate a cause as the Regency bo v presents. The nominations wont by default. Kelly accepts his oom nation, bat tt is believed Allan will deoline. II Le accepts, It will on'y be because he ; believes defeat certain. W, W.

The crowd is laiftely increased. liucb interest 1* manifested this to learn what disposition will be made of tbe contest between the Taamany and Mozart Hall delegations. i Tbo excitement among the contestant i this moruinf was renewed, but tbe tone of the Tammany delegates has somewhat moderated.
