That of the ! National Committee is addressed "to the friends ol American industry, especially in the States ' of Pennsylvania and New Jersey," and opens > with u seusible retrospective glance at the history of politic- during the last ten years. It shows how the slavery question has been j sedulously appropriated by sectional political i ! leaders, until the honest judgments of men I in both sections of the country have been j perverted and misapplied, to an attempt to j array the two extremes in hostile attitude to | wards eac h other. Through the unwise course of the democratic party, in assuming to be. the peculiar champion of Southern rights, it shows that it lost the confidence and support of the Northern people, "numbers of whom were induced temporarily to array themselves in the ranks of the republican organization." The great changes that have been made in fhe aims and objects of the republican party are then set forth. At first springing into existence from the opening of that box of Pandora, the Kansas-Nebraska bill, "it made the practical restoration of the Missouri compromise line the sole atid avowed end of its ex- l i-tcnce." It was asserted that when this was attained it? rnisMon would be ended: and in this belief "multitudes of conservative citizens at the North gave in thdr adhesion to the new organization In the last Presidential dec- j tion the new party erected, as its sole criterion of political fellowship, the reclamation of knnsas from the eucroachments of slavery. This olije :t is attained-Kansas is free; and now the republican party aban- j dons its old position, ami proclaims '-an internecine war between the North and Scutb." One o'ber point in the course of the black republican leaders is presented truthfully. The "friends of American industry" are culled to contemplate the radical division existing. Dot only among the rank aad file, but also among the chiefs of the black republicans, on the tariff question, and how antagonistic are the two schools represented by the New York Trttume and the New York Evening Post. The twelf th resolution of the black republican platb rra is exposed in its double meaning, and the people are called to observe that these political organs have merely made a peace which is to endure no longer than the struggle for office: that once attained their war will begin. I.. il.A .xf si... fT-l W?i 1 ? in m?- miuirv ui mi- l uiuu r.ifuiorai vommittee similar ground in gone over, and the anomaly of perpetuating party dividons among the conservatives, in order to permit the election of a sectional President by a minority of one million ol tb?- people, is pointedly referred to. The design of the black republican party "to oreithrow sl?\ery in the States, or, failing in that, to overthrow the I'nion itself," L- unmi-takably condemned, and the Northern people are called upon to exhibit the same fraternal feelings which the recent elections in the South hare shown to exist there, where "the latent love of I'nion has burst forth with new and surprising force." (loth adreews cull for a restoration of peace to the country by the putting down of fanatic sec ' ticnali.-m in the North as well as in the South. Thi-se addresses both exhibit another erl- j dence of good sense on the part of those who j base got them up. They hare not lost sight of the great fact that the object of a union among the conservatives is to defeat the election of Lincoln a violent sectionalist and a fanatic. The other conservative candidates are accordingly spoken kindly of, and their par tifnns are cordially invited to unite in the one g-eat object which all should have first at heart. There l? a danger in endeavoring to make the pi inclples of this or that school ol politicians too prominent in the combinations on a union tliket. which the deli men. as well as all the J .v.. _:ti __n . 1J Ti.? -? ??

They are determined that the vote of the K:n pire State shall not be cast for a practical Mack republican disunionist any more than for a Southern Yancey disunionist That is the sentiment which we call upon the vast com- 1 mercinl and industrial public ot this city to come out and express, in a public meeting 1 woitby of the metropolitan centre of the I'nion.

The National Executive Committee of the constitutional Union party and the Union Elec- ! toral Committee of the State of New York have each sent us proof copies of addresses they are about to put before the public. We have not space to publish all the long argumentative documents which the several i political committees are putting forth to defend ; their own positions and to attract voters, und therefore the most we can do is to present j whatever live ideas they contain to our readers j in a condensed form. Each of these addresses j K. HERALD, SATLRDAT, The Amtrliiin Horse at Home and Abroad. Wo have hoard a groal doal of nons> nse about the running horn* which a well known Kentucky turfman took some time ago over to 1 England, with the avowed intention of beating the British nobility and gentry on their own ground. The cureer of Mr. Ten Brooch's horses in England has not been a brilliant one in a racing point of view?that is, they have j been often entered against English thorough- i breds. and hnve been almost invariably unsuc- j cesaful. At the same time, however, it must be ; acknowledged that the visit of the American borsbs in England hae attracted attention to our stock, and incited gentlemen farmers and others to emulate each other in the breeding and rearing of fine animals. As the country ha- increased in population and wealth, the demand for line horses has been greatly augmented. In the metropolis alone there are a hundred private equipages where there was one ten years ago. and there is a corre-poiuling increase all over the country. The opening of a portion of the Central Tark bos created such a demand for saddle horses that it is very difficult to obtain a good . one for love or money; but that difficulty will soon be remedied. Then, again, many of our best horses are sold to foreign customers, and among the best of them is the Emperor oi the French. The Imperial stud is known to be the best in Europe, and contains four hundred horses, of all breeds and nativities. The Kin percr's favorite amusement is driving a pair of horses in a light open ph.rton. Like his uncle, he always wishes to go fast, and he may be seen almost any fine day dashing through the Bois de Boulogne or the i'ark ut St. Cloud, with a pair of fast trotters, "raised in Vermont.'" Latterly he has purchased, through M. Merrier, the French Minister here, five more Ver- I mont horses, fifteen hands high, and trotting a mile together in a little under three minutes. With these accessions, the Emperor's stud will | contain twenty-nine American horses. Of course the Imperial example is imitated by the Court, and. therefore, the number of Yankee trotters in and about Paris must be very considerable. Havana, also, is a very excellent market for our horses, and many are sold at very high prices to Mexicans and South Americans. While the American horse has been improving in beauty, style, speed and endurance, the old love of racing seems to have been dyiDg out. As in Kngland, the turf here appears to bare fallen into the hands of gamblers and persons with whom gentlemen will not associate. A better method of testing the quality of the 1 horse fcas been instituted, and with the most 1 tlatteriBg success. We allude to the horse conventions w hich have become so common all over the country. The first of these unique affairs took place at Springfield, five years ago, ! under fhe patronage of the lute Abbott Law- | rence arm omer gentlemen or nign cnaracter. i The show was so successful that three others , 1 bare since been given at the same place, ard the fourth is to take place during tbe first week of September next, when a very large sum will be distributed in premiums. There will j be an immense number of burses on tbe 1 ground from all parts of tbe country. We have received, also, programmes of the ' Third National Inhibition of Horses at Kalamazoo, .Michigan, on September 11, 12, IS and 11 next." The Miebiganders give six thousand five hundred dollars in premium-, including one thousand to the best trotting stallion under six v ars old and two thousand ' for the faite-d horse of uny age or sex." The Northwestern Horse Growers' Association will give their second annual show at Wuukegau. Illinois, on next Wednesday and Thursday. ( On the 21st ot this mouth a horse exhibition ' ww commenced at North Andover. Massacfau- 1 Bttts. and some eccentric Bostcninn introduced . a new feature by offering a premium for the 4aslowest horse."' The California State Agricultural Society gives liberal premiums for horses exhibited at it* Seventh Annual Fair, af Sacramento, September Id to 26, and nearly all the State and county fairs throughout th<* Union hare gone into the horse trotting business, more or less. It affords a most agreeable relief to the tedium inseparable from such affairs, gives the horse dealer an excellent chance to show off hi* beat stock, and protects the buyer from being swindled, the standard of excellence being so high as to ex- 1 elude all inferior animals. It may be well enough to remark, in conciu.-ion, th our horses are bred for hard work, and that while we are rearing a breed of horse* unequalled for speed aud endurance, tbe English horse has been deteriorating, on account of being trained too finely, and for speed alone. American horse stock is consequently the very best in tbe market. Timi>k am> Poijtich.?'Tbe fall trade has ?et in with great activity. This week, the busiest thus far. the returns of the import* and exports imore particularly In specie) will show a considerable excess over those ot any corre sponding period in former years.

I AUGUST 25, I860.?TRIP! Our Central Ciolrt Rtglbn-Th* Pike's Peak ninlug OUtrict. We pnbllsh to day an accurate and interesting histury of tlie discovery of gold on the ea-tern Blope of the Rocky Mountains, and of the subsequent operations of the gold hunters, with the latest intelligence from that region, and u carefully prepared map of the mining di-trict. It seems that so long ago as 1>1- the Erst trace of gold was discovered by some Cherokee hunters on the banks of the stream known as Cacbe-la Poudre, one of the tributaries of the South Platte. The following summer similar evidence of the existence of gold in the Pike's Peak district was reported by another expedition. The facta were made known to some settlers in the Indian country who hail formerly been residents of the gold mining district of Georgia, and by them they were communicated to some friends in their native State. These latter determined to explore the country where the reported discoveries were made, but were prevented irom carrying out tneir aesiga uuui IK"8, when a party was formed under the leadership of oue Green Russell, whose name has t een given to diggings discovered by the party. About the same time (spring. lSofe) a Delaware Indian offered for sale in the town of Lawrence, in Kansas Territory, some scale gold which he said he bad found on the sources of the South Platte. The news spread, and within a few months numerous companies were formed in Kansas, Nebraska and Missouri to prospect the eastern slope of the Rocky Muiintains. The Georgia and the Lawrence companies united in the neighborhood of what is now Denver City. Gold was discovered but in small quantities, and many of the gold seekers returned to the settlements disappointed and disheartened. This occurred only, two years ago. Since then the gold fever has several times increased almost to the degree in which the California gold fever raged ten or twelve yearB before, and it has as often subsided. But, on the whole, such encouragement waB held out to our enterprising population as to cause a very large in11.. V ftf Immu.pontj */. !.!? rnn eo 1 r."?nrlr?n 111IA VI iv liuo i'5?"U' TLe extent of the movement may be judged of from the fact that during the month of May lu>t no less than seven thousand teams passed through Denver City on their way to the diggings: and it is estimated that from the 1st of February last to the 1st of August sixty thousand immigrants bad arrived, most of whom were bound for the Tarrya'l and Blue river diggings, in the neighborhood of the South Park. And now, in the language of cae of our correspondents. the countless tributaries of th? Grand and Green rivers, on the western slope, aud the sources of the South Platte and Arkansas. arc fairly lined with miners and pros pectors. It does rot appear, however, that the fortune of these adventurous spirits difTers materially fiom that which fell to the lot of the earliest California and Australian gold hunters. By far the larger number have been and are doomed to difappcintment, although many are obtaining rich rewards. It is supposed that there ate no lei? than a couple of hundred quartz crashing machines at work, but very few of them have turned out to be fortunate speculations. Still our correspondent informs us that the paying mines, already discovered, are extensive enough to secure the permanent settlement of a mining community half way between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. The Pike's Peak rr.iUt r mr\ nf 1 Wl P.O I? <t*tirouted at mp rat'. i lion of dollar?, and already an assay and mint- j iug office ha- been opened at Denver City, and J is kept profitably employed. Tt e growth of that mining town is equal to that of similar towns in Calitoruia and Australia. t?n the 1st of November. lfvS, it contained just about a dozen log bouses. In another year it had grown up to a town of thieo hundred log bouses. The first brick house was erected in it in Oi tober. lbo'1: and now It contain- about eight hundnd buildings and six thousand inhabitants. It bus five private banking house*. , two daily and two weekly newspaper", and five stage lines. The K.\press Company which sup plies postal facilities handled in one day 1,700 letters and their payment to the Overland Company for the carriage of Pastern bound letters amounted in the month of July to $1.2.7. These are encouraging e\ ideuces of the pro* perity mid growth of the central gold region, and justify 11* tn devoting to the subject the space in our columns which we to-day give to iv The I'lke's Peak mining district may not provi so rich to the mere digger* a* the California gold regions have done, because generally the quartz is not sufficiently disintegrated to render the mere manual labor profitable; but the fact is established that the district is rich j in gold snd silver mines, aod there is no doubt [hat it will yield Its riches to the power of ma- j rhinerv. The Tike's Peak district may there- j lore be henceforth regarded as one of the gold j iroducirg regions of the world, and as destine! toon to become tbe centre of a large and floursbing community.

All these have been thoroughly venti- , lated. and a grateful public has been unanimous j in awarding to our quadrilateral cotemporary j the combined honors of Mars and Clio. After such toih and such triumphs one would imagine that our Chevalier would settle down quietly, and dispense the very accurate Information obtained during his stay in foreign parts. But <rreat men are ever restless. Napoleon chafed and fretted against the bais of his cage at St. Helena; nobody believes that Charles the Filth was easy in hi* mind after he gave up hi" crown: and Bolingbroke, for the want of something to do, played at being Premier tor a king out of employment. And. like the^e great men. Jenkins is restless. He backs hi? ear? like a war horse w ben he hears that the Trince of Wale? is on the St. Lawrence, and a? quickly as rail and steamboat can convey him he speed? towards the vice regal party. Behold him, Jenkins, the hero of Solferino and the historian of the quadrilateral, at Quebec. Read bis charming descriptions of the fite, and it will be seen that the hand which penned the accounts of the great events in J Piedmont and Lombardy h.ith not lost its cun- j ning. In fact, the Chevalier's style?so clear. , so terse, ro witty, so dignified, so chaste and -o I entertuining- improves, like Madeira, with age. ; His personal descriptions are delightful.

Jenkins then says. , ' I like him" (If. R. If. ought to feel highly flattered); "hi- head would indicate flrnnew, beuevolence. quickness of perception and love of music." His -very large hands and feet are but reproductions of those of his royal mother;" he "can't be easily fooled;" he Is a "young boy from the island, only nineteen years old:" "he is a good boy." saith the Chevalier, who patronises the Prince, and thinks he will do. We would be glad to know, however, Jenkins' authority for the statement that when II. R. II. dined with the Governor General he behaved dignifiedly and with graceful conrtesy."

In a few weeks he will crust the frontier, and commence a tour through the model republic. Con sidered as bearing upon the possible future of I.Dgland and America, the close commercial sill nee between the two countries, and the fact that AH?ert Kdwu.-d represents the only one of the five great Powers not bound in the rhnins of absolutism, the visit of the Prince of Wales is one of the most important events in the his tory of both countries. Andi'he can l e protected from Jenkins as well as from the New York Aldermen, we have no doubt that his travels Is this cor ntry will be as pleasant in a personal as they may be hirportant in a political point of view. Ot R Ct MMiRc t w;th Jatuuv.?The news which we published yesterday from Japan shows that ' the opening of that country by American enterprise has already resulted in a wonderful amount of commerce between the I'nited stales and the once "hermetic empire." Americans are in high faTor there, because the Japanese i know from our history and our antecedents ! that we will not plunder them of their property j and despoil them of their territory and indepen- ! dence, as filibustering European Powers have done with the other nations of the East. They L ? r .J . a lb. a f a f. r..

' Vet the American government baa not opened the commerce of Japan for it* I own citizens aloae, but for all the world, i This g: .1 public ha* no petty jealousy 1 of the commercial rivalry of any other 1 nation. All it want* is a free atogc and no < favor, and it ia willing to depend for ita success i on fair competition with all other nations, i There is one advantage nature has conferred j on us in relation to the Japanese empire: it is 1 our geographical situation?cur proximity to * those Islands?which, with fte principle and ' i practice of our government, not to fo nd Colo- !

When writing or. the subject of the negro slave and coolie trade, the London Ti>r.e? mournfUlly admits that the sceptre of the seas has departed from British hands, and that Britannia no longer rules the waves as she did in other days. The young giant of the West henceforth assume- the trident of commerce, and in a few short year* will extend its peaceful conquest-) over every sea, from pole to pole. Important Movkmems in Central America? Wai.ker's New FmiBt sTER ami Revolution-art Expedition.?Walker and some four or five hundred followers are once more on the soil of Central America. Thi* time they are there under very remarkable auspices, as will be seen by the important correspondence from Briti-h Honduras which we publish in another part of to-day's Herald. The mode In which the expedition was secretly fitted out is almost as curious as is the origin of the enterprise. It seems that New Orleans was the focus of the movement, and that Bquads of twenties were sent from there in fruit vessels t? Ituatan. and landed on that island without ......i*!.... Woii-o.- I--J.1 AI CAi'HUJg oui9|utiuu. tiaian lauuru lutro himself one 'fine ?lay, collected his recruits, and crossed over to the mainland. Then, and not till then, did the British authorities appear to wake up. They sent the steamer Icarus after him: but. curiously enough, the Icarus did not go where Walker and his men were to be found. It now turn? out that it is not exclusively cn Walker's own account that this piece of work has been taken in hand. In the first place, exPresident Cubanas is paid to be anxious to oust from the Presidential chair of Honduras the present incumbent, General Guardiolu, and has employed Walker to do the fighting for him. That does not look to be an improbable story. In the second place, there are some very curious developements taking place in the island of Ruatan, where the expedition rendezvoused. This itland has been in the possession of the British for several year?, but they have recently agreed to restore it to Honduras. This action is resisted by the British residents there, as well as by the native Hondurenos. and the commissioners who were recently sent to receive the island heard of the popular hos tility. and they returned without executing their mission. Nevertheless. Fugland seems determined, for some secret motive of her own, to abandon her sovereignty over the bland, ami has given notice that she was to do so at the close of last month, while preparations were being made by the foreign reeldents and native Hondurenos to establish in that event an independent government. Walker's expedition Is somehow or other complicated with that movement, and his ultimate design, after settling the Cabanas succession and the Iiuatan matter, is to march through Ilonduras to the invasion of Nicaragua. Whether he will ever be allowed by the American or British governments to execute all or any of his designs is a question the answer to which may produce some very important results. In a communication from n resident of Honduras, which we a'so publish, it is denied that Walker has the sympathy or will have the aid of Oabanos or the liberal party of the country; and it is declared that Walker is universally hated there, nnd that if again captured his tate is sealed. This movement, therefore, differs very materially from the former expeditions of Walker. Our government has had its attention awakened to the matter, and some of our vessela-ofwar are on the alert, watching the developement of events. The next neww from that region will be looked for with intense interest. It may acquaint us with the fall of Guardiolt, the installation of Cabanas, and the departure of the filibusters for Nicaragua. PtooRF.89 oj The Movkmmnt Against Nari-Ep.?The advices bv the Citv of Raltlmor* confirm the statement contained in the private letter*, to which we alh.dod yesterday, that Garibaldi is on the mainland. The last accounts go to far as to aflSrm that he had even been to Naples tc ccnfer with the revolutionary chiefs; and improbable as this may seem, it is not at all in oosistent with the daring and adventurous character of the man. Besides, after all, in the present state of feeling in the capital, where the spirit of disaffection has sei. ed even upon the pnbllc functionaries, then* would not be much risk In the Dictator committing his personal safety to the protection of the affiliated societies which hare the directum of the moroment. Seeing that the government is powerless to put down open manifestations of disloyalty on the part of the Neapolitan press, it is not likely that it* agents would be allowed an opportunity cf laying hands upon the man whom it would be wc rth a king's ransom to get into their clutches. Considering how little was to be gained by a personal Interview between Garibaldi and the revolutionary leaders in the capital, the report of hi.* having visited them does not wear an ai: of much probability. What he might have wanted to d< in person he could just as well have effected by deputy. There is nothing la the military defences of the city which required any preliminary examination, or which could not have been made clear te him by plans forwards! to him by the Central Committee. The fact we believe to be, what we stated yesterday, that the Dictator was rapidly advancing upon the capital at the head of his advanced force, which, we learn by tha last accounts, had been strengthened by an addition of eighteen hundred men. Ry this time be is in all probability at the gates of Naples, If not master oi the cltv itself, for it required but his presence with n few troops to induce the inhabitants to shake off the yoke of the detested Bourbons and welcome him with opes arms aa their deliverer. We see It stated that Austria Is about to repudiate the treaty of Villafranca. and to oppeee Garibaldi in Naples. We have no donbt that the foolhardincs* of Francis Joseph has long before this prompted him to such a step; but rulers bare the Inclination to do many things which t'.iey hare not the means to carry out. Fhe lineal difficulties of Austria are tha best security that Europe can bars against her disposition to complicate still further the embarrassnents of which her own bigoted and obstinate >olicy has been the main cause.
