The Abolition Charartrr of Blattk ltrl>nMI< mi lam Prot id-It* Import to tlir Otitrnl Matrii The blnck and bitter abolition character of the republican party stand* out more and more clearly to view as the campaign advance*, rending deep and portentous lesson* to every conservative interest in this country. iVe have the public and authoritative avowul of Mr. Seward that " tte Massachusetts school' is the tnie school of black republicanism. and of Lincoln, whose only claim to the Presidential chair is that he is an avowed soldier in its ranks, enlisted for life or death to the bitter end. The character of "the Massachusetts school" bus received a new exposition in the nomination of John A. Andrew as the black rep .blican nominee for Gcvernor of the old Buy State. Mr. Andrew la a clear- and unmitigated abolitionist of the Garrison and Wendell Phillips school, and has been nominated by his party on that explicit ground. It was he who not only gnve money him-elf, but actively procured subscription* from others for the purpose, and sent counsel of "the Massachusetts school'' to Virginia to defend John Brown from the just punishment for Lis bloody raid into that State, and be has been for many years one of the most influential of lilt* rauid aDomiomsis. ins nominnnon is a practical ratification of Lincoln's declaration of an "irrepressible conflict" between the North and the South; of Seward's brutal and bloody speech at Rochester; of Helper's incendiary uud treasonable teachings; of Suyinor's murderous harangue, and of John Brown's re; olutlonary practice. It is such events as these that form nn irrefutable declaration of character for the black republican parly. In view of them, no man can doubt what is the true tenor of the teachings of "the Massachusetts school," and orery one who has present interests at stake, who has children to whom to leave the bright inheritance he received from bis fathers, who has a patriotic hope for a future career of greatness and prosperity for his country, must tremble at the prospect of such fanatics obtaining possession of the federal power of the confedera tion. Men calling themselves moderate repnb licans. who believe that their party is merely animated by a desire to prevent the extension of slavery in the Territories, and that it means no hostile aggn-ssion upon the sovereign rights and social safety of fifteen sister States, must now begin to see where they really stand. They must perceive that they are deceived into sup- j nortinir fh?? nrnierta of the most intn!i>mnt and bloody minded set of bigots that it is possible to conceive of. They must learn that they hare no control of the party organization to which they nre affiliated, but that its whole manage mont and impulse- are in the hands of fanatic* whose aspiration* they do not share, whose de*tnutlve schemes they detest, and whose plans they had vainly hoped to restrain and control. In a word, they mr.*t now be convinced that they are nothing more than tools In the hands of Wm. Lloyd Garrison. Wendell rhillips. and the rabid abolitionists of "the Mas-achnsetts school," which will scorn their counsel*, and fling them aside when the triumph they aim at is attained. To the conservative, industrial, commercial and intellectual interests of the country this Mn*-achusett* nomination comes with a thunder tone of warning. If the cloud in our political horizon has seemed to them, hitherto, no bigger than a man's band this sudden clap mnsfforetell to them the black tempest that will soon overcast our political sky if they do not coD.iure the storm. It He* IB their hand* to do this. The key position of the Presidential ccnte*t lies in the Central States?New York, lVunsyhania and New Jersey?the heart of our commercial, manufacturing and mining interest*, and if they do not now roll back the fanatic tide of black republicanism of 1 the kla.a-achusetts school," they will soon have to roll tack a stronger tide of hosts of aggressive lanalice. bent on the subjugation of the Southern ccmm nities to their demoralizing and destructive free negro teaching*. Let no man flatter hlir.-elf that when the hour of contest comts thise Central States will be free from , th? bitter and bloody fruits of tne fray.

A Piax for Settling the Eastern Qie=. no\.?1That troublesome and indefinite issue, the Eastern question, promises to give busy occupation to European diplomatists for some years to come. The difficulty in bringing it to a settlement is occasioned, however, less by inherent obstacles than by the interest which the leading European Powers ht?ve in continuing the present unsatisfactory condition of things in Turkey. They all feel, like the Emperor Nicholas. that it will be better to let that empire ful' to piecee than to reconstruct it, for they may then come in for a ehare of the fragments. If they could only be prevailed on to make a sacrifice of their selfish views the Eastern question would t>e susceptible of an easy and deli nits solution. The idea that has been recently started, of erecting iryiia into an independent Pashalik. arid making Abd-el Kuder its sovereign, presents the germ of this solution. When the Mahometan conquests were consolidated intc one empire, with Constantinople as its seat of government, the sway of the Sultan extended from the pillars of Hercules to the Persian gulf, and from the Caucasus to the Lybian desert. Tire encroachments of Russia, the revolt of Mebemet All, the revolution in Greece and the conquests of France in Algeria, have contracted this once \ ast dominion within comparatively narrow limits. But even this the decrepit government of the Sultan is unable to keep under subjection, and it is to its weakness that we owe the atrocities that have recently shocked the Christian world. It being admitted thut the present political system of Turkey is inadequate to the protection of its Christian subjects, who form more than half its population, and that owing to the jealousies of the three leading European Powers there is no possibility of its being so reconstructed as to insure that object, what is the plan that recommends itself u being likely at once to effect it. and, at the same time, to place out of the reach of France, Russia and England the bone of contention over which they are ever ready to come to blows? Obviously that of so dividing up its provinces into small but independent Stales that the unruly population of each can be kept in perfect control by its chief. The example of Egypt will suffice to demonstrate the feasibility of this scheme. Its Pueha is equal to all the requirements of bis pv?u while bis responsibility to the Euronoun ffftmrnmiMitfi U full an^ snmhlntii !'?.? ?. gv>t .UUI? UK> K7 (Ull WUU W, Vf I'iiUlli occasioning him any anxiety as to their designs upon bis territory. Let the other provinces ot the empire be disposed of in the same manner. Syria, which is distinct from Turkey in its language, its custom and its prejudices, might be given to Abd el Koder, whose abilities as a ruler nnd friendly disposition towards thv Christian population point him out as eminently fitted for its government The two Armenian provinces could be combined under the rule of one of their old princes, many families of which aTe still in existence. This would leave Turkey, on the Asiatic side, the whole of the peninsula, from Kizll Irmak to Maro*h, or thereabouts, as well as the command of the Block Sea. In Europe it would be good policy to make the Balkans her artificial, as it is her natural, boundary, which would still leave to be; a noble territory, comprising the,rlna, Albania. Macedonia and Roumeliawith Constantinople as its capital. Bosnia and Servla might then be united under one prince, as are Wutlacbia and Moldavia. whilst Bulgaria should have a scpa rate government of its own. By this arrangement the misgoverned provinces of Turkey would be placed under better, or at least more stringent rule, and rendered separately responsible to Europe for their treatment of their Christian population. The sick man. thus relievt d from the cares with which he is at present unable to cope, would be in a condition to do full justice to his people, and Europe would no longer be fretted by anxieties regarding the fate of Constantinople and the disposition of an inheritance which so many covet A ptxasjutt Sioht to Witvejm.?One of the pleusantest things to contemplate just now is the revival of bu?ine->s in every quarter, and the opening promise of a profitable trade which dawn? upon the land. With abundant harvests and a general activity la all branches of trade, the legitimate aim of this commercial nation nppenrt tc bo rapidly reaching it? accomplishment in the present season. The thousands of pec pie who have been recreating at the waterirp place? nnd otlier si u met re'ert? are pour tap back tat? the cities to resume tapir commercial occupation* and with a prospect before them such as they nerer Lad before.

Sept mbiT, for Governor and members cf Cor gram. may l.e regarded as of very great importance, from its bearing on the Presidential election. It will be'the first since the elections in th< South which will hare any political signify ance. The election in Vermont ou the 4th September will not amount to much, for in that the elections have always gone sc decidedly one way that there is no probability of a change ne w. Even in 1332 it gave Scott 22.171'.,against 13,014 for Pierce; and in 1350 it gave bl,3t>7 for the republican candidate for Governor against 14,430 for the democratic. The case of the Maine election is different. It will test the strength of the repnbllcan sent! mint, and foreshadow the result of the subsequent 1'residential straggle in November. Maine bus in late your? gone republican; but recent events may have produced a reaction whose evidence will be revealed in the coming Str.te election. Lu the olden time Muire went democratic : Hf. fur example, In 1348, when the returns of the Presidential election were as follows:? Cars C9.RW T?.lor S6 125 V an Huron 12 096 In 18r.2 the Presidential election was fought on the .basis of the Compromise measures of WO, and the Union sentiment prevailed. The result was:? fierce 41,609 * ,,? 32.64S OulP 8.030 This was not a personal triumph for Pierce, for Scott wa- a fur more popular mun. nor yet u triumph of democracy, for there was no democratic Issue, but a victory over the disunion agitation which sought to disturb the settlement of 1850 agreed to by the leading statesmen of loth the whig and democratic parties in Congress. inc!tiding Clay, Webster and Calhoun. Maine, for its patriotic action at that time, in contradistinction to Vermont and Massachusetts, was greeted as "the star in the East." But by the corruption and mismanagement ot the republican leaders ever since 1854, the State has gone republican. In the election for Governor that year the numbers were:? Republican 44 ,Bo2 D-moc.-al 28 Whin 14 Oil Anil Liquor law 8.424 In 1856 the result of the State election for Governor was as follows:? Kepubl^aa 64 .C90 Piui'crat 42,668 The difference was greater in the case of the Presidential candidates in the same year: ? Frctnnot 67,179 Rucnanan 89.UHU lillnaore S.C26 Mr. Fremont, however, was not regarded as a sectional candidate. but as a conservative Southern man. in whom was embodied the opposition of the whole country against the democracy. The republican party, which had not then developed itself, and was supported by thousands on probation, as an element of oppo| sition to the corrupt party in power, gave its nomination to Fremont, and be accepted it, republicanism then professing to be conservative, and opposed to abolition. The result in Maine was, therefore, far more favorable to him than to the candidate for Governor, the difference being 12,780 votes. Owing to the continued demoralization and corruption of the democratic party, and the factious conduct of its leaders in Congress, the republican sentiment still prevailed in Maine last year, when the result of the election for Governor was as follows:? Republican 56,201 Ivmocrmt 44,372 Since that election the republican party has more fully developed its designs, and the John Drown raid has opened the eyes of thousands of conservative men at the North to the dangerous and revolutionary nature of the organization. as avowed by its leaders in their speeches and in " Helper's Impending Crisis of the South/' which they have all endorsed, from the Senators and representatives in Congress downward. What effect thi* handbook of treason atd John Brown's overt act at Harper's Ferry may have produced on the conservative portion of the republican party in Maine remains to be seen. The ensuing election will tell the whole story. If the people of that State should reject the republican caadidate for Governor?and it requires only a change ot six thousand vote?? the act will speak volumes, and the effect produced over the whole North will be tremendous. It would be a declaration, not in favor of democracy, for that organisation is shut trred to piece*. but for the I'niua sentiment, wbjcb U the real sentiment of the country. And the republican journals and leaders are afruid of this result in Maine. While they are making a great noise In this State over local matters. and talking about Duer, and Brooks, and flunt, tbey are sending money and agents to Maine to secure the election there, of whose significance they are fully aware. a.? an index to the existing sentiment of the North. The result of the contest, therefore, on the 10th of the next month, will be looked forward to with the deepest interest by statesmen and politicians of ail parties, and by the people of very section of the country.

" A Fireman and Working Man" is. it seems to us. a I'ttle hasty. The committee to which he refers represent all classes of citizens. Many of them have raised themselves, by hard work, j from indigence and ob?curitv to affluence and position. *1 bey purpose simply not to '-mono- g ize" the Prince, but to give him n grand ball. ^ in which all respectable eitizen3 will be requested to participate. This committee, it seems to us. have nothing to do with processions or reviews contemplated by others; but if the firemen?in w hose ranks there are many rich ^ men?or the military?who are equally able? should object to appearing on account of the ^ expense, we have no doubt that the city will be j, ready to foot the bills, which will be only a ? bagatelle after all. It is to be sincerely hoped that all classes will j join in the endeavor which is to be made to Bhow the Prince and the representative? of the British government who accompany him that the power find the greatness and the glory of the United State? have not been overrated, and that they may have the evidence of their own eyes to confirm w hat they have heard w ith their ears. Ab to the ball, there will be no difficulty: but the more important matters are the military and firemon's parade?, the like of which cannot be seen in Europe. Just now the volunteer taiilitla system is at- a trading particular attention abroad, and the j perfection which our citizen soldiery have at- ^ tained is a sufficient proof of the efficiency of this arm of military service. Then the firemen p present to the European view a most formidable brigade. Nearly all of them are trained to bear arms, and *o them danger is as a pastime. They may be appropriately termed the T Zouaves of civil life. From these two independent bodies the Prince and bis retinue will obtain a better idea of our peculiar institutions 6( and theory of self-government than any other. t And we put it to our correspondent, and all u who may think with him. that whatever mea- ^ sure of Importance the Prince's visit may have ^ for one class in the community it possesses for g every other. Whatever tends to attract the attention of the European governments to the city r of New York, as a great commercial metropolis. ^ having within itself the foundations of its own p pro?perity. is as important to the working man. i( the mechanic or laborer, as to] the capital- tj ist. the merchant or the professional man. All or us. waeiner we biuta s-ips or house-, or im- ^ port goods ?r engage in any profession or trade, are equally interested in promoting the e proeperity and increasing the fame of our me- c tropolitan city, of which we are so justly proud. ^ Tur. Conservatives or the Corvniv.? ' Ax Esxxrix Worth v o? Imitation.?The 11 South has given to the rest of the Union ? an example well worthy of imitation. One of the Southern candidates for the Presidenry was?we can hardly say is-Mr. Breck- r inridge. This gentleman is young, able, ' gallant of winning manners and address. 6 and extremeij popular, me oouin could net v have had a candidate more completely to its 0 taste. But, unfortunately for hie chances of po- t! litical elevation, he had accepted his ntmiaation from men who allowed themselves to he 11 headed and controlled by secessionists. That l! fact mined Mr. Breckinridge's Presidential as 11 plratlons. Deservedly esteemed as he was in ^ hie own section, and indeed ever/where, the popular verdict in almsst every Southern State f that has since spoken has been adverse to him. i: This I* a warrant and assurance to the world that so far ns tho South is concerned that section is devoted to the maintenance of the I'nion P and the perpetuity of our institutions, and 'll will continue in that petition it the North n will give them a chance tc do so.

Stump;? ve: was there a Presidential election before i which ><o many of the candidates took tho li mp as in the present content. Seldom, iaieed, have candidate- so ice before the people t all. General Scott was Induced to do it ia | <-z Now nearly all the candidates for Prootle t? ?nd Vice President have entered the lists n person with their armor on. It seems that in iroportion tc the absence of excitement among be people is the zeal cf the a^Irants for the hlef magistracy. There is an evident want of onfidence on the part of one and all. Lincoln was the first to take the field, but inly succeeded in making one speech. In that peech, however, he said enough to lad for the e-t of the rnmn>I?n It not fop tho root Ar hio be. He declared his determination not only o carry out the irrepressible conflict to the itter end. but that he and all other republics would by degrees go greater and greater rngths, thus showing that revolutionary re?ublicani=m Is not only aggressive but proxcssive. Where it will stop, if not stopped at >ncc none can tell. Mr. Douglas takes the stump at the North ad South. Instead of meeting the issue as laid km by the republican candidate, he goes off nto side issues dead and gone, and talks about uuutter sovereignty, which is nothing to the urpose. Breckinridge is to follow him imncdiutely, having been announced to address a nass meeting next week in Kentucky. If he hould take the same course as some of his superiors. the fire eating leaden at the South, rho threaten a dissolution of the Union in a * riuiu contingency, he will find his words as ride of the mark as these of the Douglas. We tope he will repudiate the disunioaists at the louth. and fairly and squarely meet the Issue aised by the republicans and their candidate, ohnson on the same ticket with Douglas, has tumped the South, and, what is curious, his irinciples are opposite to those of the "Little iiant." Mr. Lane, on the same ticket with Ireckinridge. ha? made a speech, of which a re. >o:t will be found in another column. It peaks for itself. Thus three candidates for the Presidency, and wc for the Vice Presidency, are either cut oc oming out stumping for themselves. 6am iouston has retired, else he would have been in the stump, and it on'.y remains for Harnlia jjd Bell and Everett to come forward to have he whole of the candidate# in propria persona iefore the people, who would thus be the beter able to judge of the respective merits and iriaciples of each, and render a more iateliient decision. Tut: Fall Tkapk?Inixcx or Strangers Lsra he II mtoror is.?Judging from present iadicaions. the trade of New York this fall bids fair o exceed by a large figure that of any former euson. The Custom House returns, the wee&j arnings of the railroads and canals, and the nprecedentedly crowded condition of the otels, all denote a degree of commercial acLvity which has not till now been witnessed ince 1857. The rapid rise which has taken place in rail* oad shares of all kinds is another evidence of he confidence which is felt in our business respects. This feeling is. Jo a certain extent, ratified by the extraordinarily favorable reports bat are being received of the results of the resent harvest. In seven of the Northwestern tate3 alone the Chicago papers estimate the coduce o! the wheat crop at 118,000.000 bushIs. It is no wonder that, with these facts, oupled with gloomy accounts of the European arrests to work upon, speculators in railway hares should have recovered some of the foolardineas which had been damped by the panic f 1837. However they may err on the sanguine side, here is no doubt that the earnings of the raiioads will this year be larger than usual, 'he returns of the canals since their opening how already an excess in the receipts of 604.S3G over those of 1839, and before the close f narijpa'.ion it will probably amount to more inn a million. The same influences that aJect ie revenue of the canals of cour-o, also conributt to swell that of the railroads. whilst the itter have, in addition, an amount of puutengar affic over their lines exci sing that of any wtner pc riod. The stimulus imparted by abundant barren^ r abined with the rush _?f visiters attracted ere by the vL-it of the Priuee of Wales cannot J1 to confer a run amount of benefit on the cal trade of our city. Our merchant* are rep-ring to take advantage of it by laying in irge stocks of nee good-; and if they can oaly rc '.d over speculation, there is but little doubt lat the remit c-f the season'e bttsbeaa will en jle most of them to put a fair amount to the refit side of the account when tl.ey co%e t? rlke the rear'.- balance 1 at Iaf?llig*n< ?.
