TRIPLE SHEET. ??or York, tYtrinnday, Boptoinb'r IV, ISttO The by t ie arrival of the Foropa off Cape Race wc haxe K -opcan advices to the Oth inst., two days later it.au the accounts published yesterday. The news j important, both politically and commer cially. The reports of Garibaldi's march npon Naples ami o? the King's flight to Gacta are fully con firmed. Garibaldi was at Cava on the 6th. and was expected at Naples the next day. The city was perfectly tranquil. In the Papal States the revolutionary element had aasnmed activity. An outbreak had hap pened at Peaaro, in which the populace attacked and defeated the Papal troops. The weather in Knglaad continued favorable for the crcps, and there was reason to anticipate a plratfui harvest. This satisfactory prospect as re gard; the supply of cereals had paralyzed the breadstoffs markets, and. as compared with the quotation* of the week previoua, flonr had de clined two to three ahilllngs per barrel, wheat niaepence. and corn one shilling and sixpence. The cotton market waa Arm, and provi-ions quiet. We have advices from Vera Cruz to the 2d inst. The liberal* were concentrating their forces upon the capital, where Miramon awaited their approach. The attack w as expected to commence on the 8th last., and a bloody battle, on the Mexican plan, may be anticipated. Tue ateamship EmpL-e City, Captain Baxter, ar rived here from New Orleans and Havana yester day. There is no local news of any importance from Ha tana. A railroad accident had occnned on tae morning of Sunday, the Pth, cau-ed by the giving way of an iron bridge over the Rio Seco, betweeoOtunesaud Ban Nicolas, which precipitated the last cars down an embankment. The conduc tor and brakeman were thrown into the Led of the river* yet strange to say their injuries were very sl.ght. Fortunately there were no paaaengcra iu tlio e cars. The Spanish war steamer Francisco do A sis had arrived at Havana from Tntxillo. confirming, by the news she brings, the accounts already published in regard to Walker and his companions. By let ters Ironi corespondents we learn that Walker's forre would soon hare been doubled if the British had not Interfered. He would hare had at lea?t one hundred and fifty men under him by this time. We are in receipt of fib* of Cara as. Vcneznela, papers to the 24th ult. There is no great variation in the news. The war continues with the same barbarity and the same fruitless efforts as erer. Sotillo. it appears, is not dead, as was reported, but quite a lire and rery troublesome in Barcelona. Me'.ia wax still in the hands of the face',moe, tho.gb troops had been despah hc.i from Marai aibo and other points to assist <<eneral Andrade in his eforts to retake the piace. Falcon was atill in Curacao, and Coro was watching him. There la the usual complaint ot utagnation in I miners, and pvibl. work* are almost, entirely suspended. The government was endes- ormg to eflbct a home ioan of a mil,ion of dollars, and a foreign one of a million and a half of pounds* er ing. The terms of these loan* are not made known. From Jamaica we b-arn that the recent elections are I kely to be subje- t, in n me cases, to review in the Assembly, by scrutiny committees. In the parish of f?t. George. for instance. Mr. !.awton. the ?dito ??(the John!,, } look a preliminary objection to the elect aral Ust. which hud not been made t p according to law. The objection is said to ?* fata), and W. t.eorge ?. therefore disfran chised for a year.

It ?*? announced, however. Ibat Governor Dai ling would cut the Cord.au knot, by elevating Mr. Hoeack to the Legislative Council, add bestowing that gentle- | mau s vacant portfolio on the Hon. George Bolo- ! mou the new member for St. Thomas in the Eari. and the almost equally new chief magGlrato of Portland. Add.t.onal parti dara of the effect of the tenlflc gVe that swept the coaata of M'xsiasippi and Alabama on Saturday last are given am-mg our telegraphic despatches At the mouth of the Muvixsippi the brig Weet Indian w.?a wrecked and ten of her crew drowned. Several li;'ithousea were prostrated by the violence of the wind. At Mobut the gale was very severe. The ship R. H. Digey, Capt. Dixey, which sailed from this port on the loth ult.. was driven ashore in the lower l.ay and became a total loss, and her captain and erveml of the crew perished. Five steamboats were sunk during the storm. The gale waa uo docbtedlyone of unusual force, and II it not un likely that it awept the Mexican Golf from Vocatan to Florida. We may therefore expect shortly to learn of terrible disasters to the shipping in those water.. It is stated that the government hare decided to award the contract for construe ting the Pacific telegraph to Harmon A Clark, of Detroit, they being the lowest bidders. The sum bid for the contract la twenty fivs thousand dollars. We pobliah under the appropriate head a letter from our special correspondent at Honey Lake Valley, Worth era California, of the MA nit. giving the particulars of the wbereabonta and progress of Colonel land.r's wagon road expedition. The latter officer, with his command had a light with the Pah Ute Indians, which resulted in the chief ?coking an interview with Colonel Under, and the negotiation of a treaty of peace. This fbet caused fiwt laUfctiou aaeog the white inhabitant* of Honey Luke Valley, a* these Indian* had bssn * constant source of annoyance.

TUe funeral of Don Juan Br Ho, Chilean Minister to this country, took place yesterday from the Church of St. Francis Xuvier, West Sixteenth street. It ? as attended by a large number of our most influential citizens, and the whole of the diplomatic corps of this city. The remains will be forwarded to Chile lor interment. The bids for the >3,000,000 Corporation loan were opened yesterday by the proper officers. A list of the names of the bidders, the amounts proposed for, and the. nanus of the successful bid ders, are given among our financial matter in to day's paper. The cotton market was firm yesterday, w.th sales of about 1,600 balea. TUe market closod without change .n pricee. TUe receipts at the ports eiaoe the 1st of Sep tember met.

Tlie Greet Iwat?Tht Dmly *f New Vork Thc People RUlef. As the great day of our Presidential contest approaches, the spirit of the fight in support of our conservative element? is everywhere de veloping itself among the masses of the people. Still, as it is manifest, looking to the East, the West, the North and the South, that the forlorn hope of the Union cause rests upon the Im perial State of New York, we might almost despair, but for the mighty outpouring of the people to our late great metropolitan Union mass meeting. This meeting, however, changes the complexion of the campaign from gloom to cheerfulness, from despondency to a living faith In the resources and the will among the people of New York to turn the tide of the battle, like Bragg's battery at Buena Vista, and to "save the day." .Nor Is this all: for not only have we seen in this great Union gathering that among the op ponents of the republican party there are the fo tves and the resources essential to a glorious tri umpb. but this meeting has also Indicated the sin pie plan of operations by which the work ma}' be done. It never can be done by any log-rolling experiments to har monize the personal feuds, Intrigues, aspira tions, demands and cross purposes which thus far ha ve controlled the several parties, factions and cl iques concerned. This is the never end ing ami still beginning work of Syslphus, this labor o f compounding between Douglas, Breck inridge und Bell-Everett leaders. All ideas of concessl ons and equivalents among such con flicting engineers as Dickinson, Richmond, Cag ger. Tucker. Green and Brooks must be sunk In the paramount idea of a cordial coalition tor the de feat of this sectional disunion repub lican part T The mat ses of the people assembled at the Cooper Imititute Union demonstration. Breck inridge men. Douglhs men. Bell men. eld line whig* and Americans, Tammany Ilall and Mo zart men, in tbcir homogeneous character as a Union paity. in opposition to the republican disunion purty, furnished the example and the platform for a similar combination throughout the State, to wit: a common electoral ticket among all the conservative elements of the State, In or 3er. by saving the State, to save the country from the inauguration of the "irre pressible conflict" at Washington. To do this. Dean Richmond and his clique of selfish intriguers. Mr. Dickinson and his per sonal grievances, Mr. John A. Green and his small calculations, and all such partisan claptrap as Congressional Intervention, squatter sove reignty. regularity, aid all men and all abstrac tions standing In the way, must be made secon dary to the one grand. all-important and uni versal idea?the defeat of Lincoln. In this view. New York city krlll do her duty. We dare say that from the northern end of Manhat tan Island the I nion electoral ticket will start up the Hudson with a majority of fifty thousand, and it will only need a corresponding co-opera tion among our conservative men throughout the State to carry this majority safely through to Dunkirk. The professions of the republican party are smooth and silky. They tell us thatj they will preserve the Union, that they will respect the rights or the States, that they will maintain the iinstitution, and sll that: but they also admoni-h us that there shall be no more slave territory?no more slave States: that slavery is sectional, while freedom Is national; that the two systems of free labor and slave labor cannot co-exist under the same government, but that the ooe or the other must be exterminated from the length and breadth of the land, because there is an "irrepressible coofllct raging between the two ?ytem? which It Is beyond the power of man to arrest. They tell us. too. that the federal constitution is an anti-slavery charter; that it contemplates the extinction of slavery, and that the Supreme Court, prostituted to the interests of the slave power, must be remodelled on the side of free dom. They admonish us of all these things, and L? there no danger in them : We cannot ?hut our eyee to the fact that this republic %n programme means the beginning ef a war by the federal government against the Southern institution of slavery with the In auguration of Mr. Lincoln, which must speedily be followed by the eeceesion of some of the Southern States, or the subjugation of the South to the decreet of an active anti slavery adml nistratiou. We know that the people of the South will not Wmelj submit; we are sure they will reals! the federal authority and the federal forces, when directed to weaken their present securities and safe guard? against abolition emissaries and servile, insurrections. We may safely predict, too, thtfv the republican party, once in power at Wash ington. will lose no time In bringing the South to a settlement? peace or war. Among all conservative Northern men. there fore. all old party animositiee?all tie feuds of local cliques and rival politicians-are, or should be. but the dust In the balance, weighed in the scales with this overwhelming duty of patriotism, the defeat of Lincoln. Upon the SUte of New York this paramount duty U now thro wn. The city of New York leads the way Let the Union rank and file throughout the State follow her example, and their triumph i will be decisive in Caror of the Union. The people opposed to Lincoln are rising. Let the politicians concerned more with them, or stand out of the way, eo that the will of the ma jority may be heard. Let the conservative voice of New York have vent, and the country will be saved. Oar Historic Drvdoptmcst-Shsll It ?? Superseded by s ttsr sf Races? The political issue that is now before the country is a far more momentous one than has ever before been presented here, and the con sequences flowing from its decision will aflect our historic developement for ages to come, if they do not establish an early period to our e. istence as a nation. Party divisions among us have hitherto been based on questions of policy in government, but without departing from the great principle of the rightful preponderance of the white race. Thus, in the first division of parties after the establishment of the constitution, the Ltne= of the federal and republican organizations were drawn on the great question of a stronger or weaker form of federal government, involving the right of controlling personal liberty, the freedom of the press, and other questions ot a similar character, which marked our legis lation and political agitation during the closing years of the last century. This was succeeded by party divisions on the question of a second war with England in defence of our rights on the ocean and the patriotic sacrifices the war party then led the country to make In the face of the bitter oppo sition of " the Massachusetts school were the foundations of our present commercial glory. After this came the grot division under Jack bod. on the questions of bank, tariff and inter nal improvements by the general government. All of these questions were discussed with par tisan bltteme??, but in them the doubt of the right of the white man to rule never entered. The only party division that exists to-day. aside from the bickerings of selfish and unscru pulous leaden, who are each endeavoring, with their petty cockle boats, to gather the fragments that are floating upon the tide of party revolu tion, involve- a far deeper and older question than any that has previously been discussed among us during our national career. The is sue that is presented by the black republican party involves the whole question of our social and national existence. Black republicanism, founded on and animated by the anti slavery idea, and pursuing an exaggerated notion of individual rights, involves not only an attempt to equalize Hi?ImiUr and discordant races in their social and political immunities, but also , the most destnc"~ &*?[Z fe ?wl to the organization of society. Socialism in its worst form, including the most advanced theories of women's rights, the division of land, free love and the exaltation of the desires of the indi vidual over the rights of the family, and the forced equality of all men in phalansteries, or similar organizations, are a part of the logical chain of ideas that flow from the anti-slavery theory which forma the soul of black republi cantata. This anti-slaver j idea alms to establish a new social policy in this country?Um policy of an equalization of the white and black races?which has never produced anything but bloodshed in other parts of the world, and which can only result in the subjugation or destruction of the numerically weaker race. There is no possibi lity of the black and the white existing harmo > nlously together in social and political equality. Even the blacks and mulattos* cannot do it We have pregnant examples of this truth in the bloody history of Haytl and the Dominican re public: in the scenes that have been witnessed wherever European coloal/.ation*has been estab lished In Africa; In the events now passing In every Spanish-American repi bite within the tropics, and even among ourselves, in the popu lar feeling in the southern counties of the free States bordering on those holding slaves. It is then the question of a revolution in our social organization that the black republicans present to th? people -a revolution that brings with it a perpetual war of races, which must endure when once inaugurated, until the blacks now on this continent have been swept from the face of the earth. With the abolition of slavery in the Northern States, the negroe- that once existed amc>Dg us In family servitude hsve been almost exterminated. The pav.clty of their numbers prevented their presenting any resistance to this social extermination, and the same resson ap plies to the fact that the loee of their labor woe not felt to any great degree by the material In terests of the community. But this does not and cannot apply to the Southern States, where four millicos of blacks are now held la a position of social subjection, which contributes to their own moral and mate rial welfare, and to that of the whole commu nity in which they exist The triumph of the anU-slavery sentiment, through the election of Lincoln to the Fre-ldency, will initlste a so cial revolution among us which will require generations, and perhaps centuries, for its con summation. If we exist through it so long. Such a war of races will absorb all the powers of our society, diverting them from the prosec Hon of domestic industry and fore:gn trade. Abo-e all. it will produce division and conflict among ourselves as it has divided the white- every where that It has prevailed, while the blacks, without other policy or impulses, will be united by the bond of color. There Is no escape from these logical conclusion*. We are sublet to tbe came-laws that rule mankind everywhere. There are thousands of conservatives among the black republicans who believe that they can restrain their party trom these exti ?me results: but they deceive themselves. Their party or ganization is Dtmed on an Idea fomented by the abolition societies of tha North for tbe paat twenty-five years, and It cannot escape from the rule of that idea. This is clearly seen in tbe public declarations of Lincoln, tbe teach ing* of Spooner, the Incendiary instigations of Helper, the approval that followed tbe bloody acts of John Brown, the outpourings of Sumner and Wilson, tbe diatribes of Greeley, and the reoent speeches of Seward st Boston, Detroit, Lansing and Madison. The real question, therefore, now presented to tbe people of the United States is the question of our social developement for generations yet to come, aad involv ing our very existence as s nation. If we once begin the war of races, which will inevitably follow from the triumph of tbe abolition idea and U* c:ntroi cf our government, it cannot cease until the black race has been exterminated or driveu Lob among us. 8oca a war will involve the cessa tion of the prosecution of many of the indus trial pursuits that now constitute our prosperi ty and national greatness. It will bring civil and servile war to our new peaceful land. It will consume ail the elements that new contri bute to our intellectual and material de. elope ment With euch certainties before us, involving our posterity for centuries in conflict and ruin, it becomes ever;/ man to take heart and do his utmost to defeat the fanatical and revolution ary black republicans, whe. blinded by their own zeal, following a fallacy that elsewhere has conduced only to destruction, and obsti nately refusing to learn wisdom from the expe rience and disasters of other lands and nations, are bent on establishing here the most destruc tive conflict of races that the world ha: ever witnessed. Gkuat Arcusaioa ioth- Rk-xwl:cjl.\ Cacti:.? The republican journals are making a great noise about the conversion of Dr. Orestes A. Brownson. We congratulate them on the ac cession. The republican ca .se is surely safe now, and there can be no longer a doubt of Lincoln's election. The vote of this remarkable convert villi settle the whole matter, provided it can only be taken while he is in the humor; for. alas, he may change before the election. Orestes has been ' everything by turns, and nothing long." He has bo ed the compass in religion. He has been at every point of it till the wind shifted. lie was born a Protestant, and is now a Catholic; but what he will become next, who can tell! He has been a Presbyte rian. a Methodist, an Episcopalian, an infidel, if not an atheist, and, lastly, a Romanist: and he tas run all these religions a? he does everything else, into the ground. His po litics have been a- vario.j a; his re ligions, shifting like quicksands. At one time he was an advocate cf despotism, and opposed to all human liberty. In 1848 he opposed revolution and backed the despots. He uttered the strange doctrine that '? there are no human rights." He was an ardent admirer of Louis Napoleon as long as he seemed to be playing the part ofCn"-ar : but the Emperor has lost terribly in his estimation within the last four years, since he show -d a disposition to espouse human rights and to place himself at the head of the popular movement, riding upon the whirlwind and controlling the storm. In domestic politics he his been equally erratic?a whig, a democrat, a Knew Nothing, and now a black republican, though Helper's handbook of revolution, endorsed by the leaders of the party, denounces the Catholic religion and all who profess it. But whether Brownson is still a Catholic may well be a matter ?f doubt, seeing that his changes are so nnmeroas and so great. He may jiave been a Catholic yesterday, but may npj ft t9 d?J. h Hk* mwnej ft may change his politics before the end of the week. The only way to make sure of his vote, which is to be the casting one in the "irrepressible conflict." is to take him before a commissioner of deeds and get his affidavit that he votes for Lincoln, for he may turri round to the other side long before the first Tuesday after the first Monday In Novem ber. It is important. Not a day ought to be lost, for the fate of the election and the destiny of the country hang upon his kissing the book, and upon the dash of his pen at the foot of the affidavit. A verbal adhesion is unrellabU as the wind, but the oath remains. By all means ! swear him. Lttera tcr^la mant'. The Pott- a>d rar Petxce or Wale?.? The hotel keepers are all oa the track of H. R. H.; Jenkins, like Mrs. Micawber. will aerer desert him; the hatters, tailors and bootmakers will use him as an advertisement; and. worse than all. the poets hare commenced to pipe their little lays in his honor. We have re. ceived several of the effusions of these new votaries of the tuneful Nine, and find them even worse than the campaign lyrics which we have printed as literary and political curiosities. One disciple of Apollo informs us that his verses have a slight tinge of satire in them; but we have failed to perceive anything of the sort. The ??poem" is a parody upon "Young Lochinvar." and starts off with the statement that "Young Boron Renfrew has come out to the West." and that "of all Britiah lordlings he's reckoaed the best;" that ' he's of p-.re royal blood and the Queen's eldest son so must needs rank with gentlemen A No. 1." Again, we are told that, "being aow In his prime, tbe B. R. makes no auch pretension* at looking sublime,', which may be very flae; it is certainly somewhat ob scure. A firemen's parade is to "swell his young bosom with glee," w hlcb he "enjoys with as hearty a gusto as one of the bTx>yi;" and more to the same purpose. W# are afraid that all these poems art too clever for us, and there fore must decline publishing them in our "valu able journal." We auggest. however, that they be sent to General Morris, the Horace, or Bry ant, tbe Homt r. of American poets. They print green poetry enough in a month to set up half a do-en country newspapers for a couple of ye -ra. The Heroar or the Wn? A^akfs.?We publish to-day a fill and concise history of the new black republican organ!ration of "Wide Awakes"?a body of voters numbering through out the Northern States nearly half a million strong. They are a regularly disciplined, drilled and uniformed force, and are to the republican party just what tbe Know Nothing club* were to tbe American party. The account wa give In another column was, of course, obtained from republican source* and the Wide Awakee them selves . It will be seen from that de-eription and the statements of the party generally that the du ty of these clubs is to brio; up voters at the elec tion and to keep order?that is to say. order for the republican port;?at the polls: but it L? the opinion of many Southerner- that they are in tended to be used for another purpose. Seeing that these half a million of men are regularly trained by military officers, march with remark able precision, and that each man carries his lantern like a musket on his shoulder, some Southerners are of opinion that they are de signed to act aa a kind of lifts guard to Abra ham Lincoln at his inauguration at Washing ton-should it ever take placw?and help to keep everything straight there, in case of acci dents. The Wide Awakes are to have a grand torchlight procession in this city on the 3d of October, when they will probably tan out some thirty thousand strong from ail quarters of the State. We presume H will he a very impoelhg affair: it ought to be a very luminous one cer tainly, for we understand that two hundred bar rels of oil have been purchased for the occa sion, and we may expect that the metropolis will smell like a b?J"Ui oil factory for a week aftecwnr&i. Th? LftlMl Tomb T?pl??* Hew J??t I?* Ut Hick of Time. la view cf the spirit manifested at the great I'nioc meeting on Monday night, end in con sideration of the fact that this grand uprising of the people had completely demolished the I politicians: that all the bad language and bad liquor employed by the radons fusion commit tees had evaporated and left nothing but ? bad smell behind; thst Richmond; with his un bounded ntomach; little Cagger. who acts and looks Uke a reed bird in an advanced stage of delirium; Green, of green grocery aad fine i table salt (Syracuse; fame; Tucker, an exceed f irgly small pattern for an elector at large, and all the rest of the patriots, had been finally submerged in the general resolre to rote'for any ticket by which Old Abe can be beaten, we bad begun to be afraid that New York would be without one of its standing attrac tions, to wit?some kir.d of a row. We are quite sure of everything else. The weather is lovely beyond all precedent; Broadway and the Central Park are gayer than ever before, and the drawing rooms of the fashionable hotels are the scenes of soirees wherein the beauty, aad wit, and learning, and folly and frivolity of every section "of the country, aad a considera ble portion of the rest of mankind, are fully rep reseate d. But, in addition to all this, there is demanded s tcpic?something for the news papers to write and the town to talk about Politics, as we have said, are done up. The Prince of Wsles approaches, but he is not yet a full fiedged sensation. He has managed to worry through Canada, not without troubles, the like of which, thank Heaven, cannot assail him here. To be sure, there will be a difficulty among the ladies as to whom he shall dance with, lie will be surrounded by so many pretty women that the selection of a partner will be a difficult matter, but one that he can solve without troubling the Duke of Newcastle, which must be a great relief to that worthy nobleman's mind. However, this is not an immediate sen sation. It is not, in fact, a row such as we must hare, and we look in vain for the desirable article. We are in despair, because we are in a state of profound peace. Must we then abandon all hope? No; for here comes a speck?a cloud no bigger than a man's hand. Need we say that it rises over the temple of Euterpe, and that the army of Irving place is again upon a war footing? Scarcely; although things operatic looked hopelessly pacific a week ago. Maretzek, the fighting impressario par exceVrict, assumes the baton for the Strakosch troupe, and the lion lies down with the lamb. I'll man. fertile in warlike resources, is reposing on his laurels at Paris, dining, probably, Ti*1*. Freres. or I'.clking with, ike angels of the MabUie. The amiable Strakoech announces ^ (he companies iuFe been Consolidated: I thst the dove has gone forth, and is momenta rily expected to return with the olive branch in his month. What a disgusting state of things! Is the truth of history to be upset in this way ? Is it possible that there can bs an Opera sea son without a rowForbid it. Mars, and all the gods of war! It cannot be. It is not according to the fitness of artis tic things; and so we heard, last week, the mutterings of the distant thunder. On two occasions the public was done out of its "Tra viata;" on another "Norma" was pu! up with the prima donna who had been annonnteo i? the Traviata" (Cortesi), but was sung by Pa rod I. On this latter occasion, the director first informed the public that Madame Cortesi con tinued to be indisposed, and immediately After wards issued s bulletin to the eflVct that she had "again disappointed the public and the manage ment*' That means flgbt; and ao Serradio, im pressario of the Cortesi troupe,cleared his decks for action and poured a broadside into Irving place, in the shape of a card, stating that his company would perform at Niblo's Garden, alternating with Mr. Forrest Hereupon Stre kosch returns the fire, saying that he really don't want the Cortes! party at all. but that 8ervadio promised that he would not perform anywhere after his engagement at the Academy, ex cept in the blond of Cuba. Serradio ral lies. state* that it would be absurd for him to go to Cnba and get the yellow fever to oblige Strakosch, and that his contract con tains no (ucfe proviso as that mentioned by the Academy manager. Now the crinoline be gins to expend; Minerva joins Man. Madame Cortesi takes a bond in the free fight, and re plies to an attack upon her made by an even ing paper. She declares that she sent word on the day before the performance that she would not be able to sing in "Norma,'' and that Strakesch. not she. disappointed the public. And the npahct b that there will be two Opera companies for the present; that the quid vitmet will have something to talk about, and that after the rival managers have fought their fight out, wheu they have cut each other into small bits, broken up the business, thrown away the few dolian they might have made out of the strangers and sojourners in the me tropolis?in fact, when they are utterly ruined? they will probably come together again, em brace and have a grand reconciliation dinner and pacific soiree?on credit On tie whole, we can hardly say whether the politicians or the Opera folks are the more ab surd in their small quarrels and inlhntile broils. Both, however, help to keep the public mind in a lively stale of excitement, and while we have them with us we need not fear that we shell sigh in vain for our periodical row. We have only to aay presto! and lo there Is a light at once. A charming state of things. It is true, and one for which we all ought to be truly thank ful. Let us hope that the day b far dbtant when harmony will be the rule and not the ex ception among the sons and daughters of soog. Fusion Dou wknts.?The fusion documents which have been put forward for the last fort night are perfectly ridiculous. None of them hits the point et issue. Each one is Inspired by the idea of aggrandizing a section oi a party or glorifying an individual as its standard bearer, and decrying the rival section and Its leaders, while ail this time the common enemy Is overlooked, though making his advances with steady step, shoulder to shoulder, and e bold, unflinching front. The attempts et fusion have only made greater division and tendered "confusion worse confounded.'' Party has been well defined as " the madness of many for the gain of a flow," and never has this dsflnl- ' tion been better illustrated than in the. present campaign. The conservatives had the game in their hands, and their leaders havs been ab solutely doing their utmost to throw it away ever since the meeting of the Charleston Con vention. But the recent fusion document* cap tit* ;liaax of political folly. Triumph of tlkr Revelwtlo* M KapU*-^ Mrtiwutl Italia* PnitwuM. Tbe Euro pa brings us positive information of the fact for which the last advice* K?ii prepared ua?that the King of Naples had abandoned his capital at the first newi of Garibaldi's approach. He embarked immediately oa board a Spanuffi frigate and proceeded to Gaata. where it is his intention to await the course of events. As this place ia strongly fortified and within a short distance of the Papal frontiers, its selec tion for his present retreat shows that the King is not without hope that a reaction may be pro voked amongst the lower orders of Naples, or that the complications to which an Invasion of the Roman territories and of Venice by Gari baldi most lead would operate in his favor. It Is unnecessary to point out the utter improba bility of these expectations. The authority of Victor Emanuel onoe proclaimed in the capital, and backed by a few regiments of Bersaglieri. the Twa Sicilies are as effectually lost to the Bourbons as If they had never reigaed there. The only chances of a revolutionary movement lie with the lazzaroni, and they will be kept under effectual check by the precau tions which Count Garour has adopted. As to the royal troops, their {disposition has bee* sufficiently tested by the readiness with which they have abandoned their colors when ever they have been confronted with the volunteers. Any expectations, there fore, built upon the fidelity of either tha rabble or the garrison, are certain to be disap pointed. As to the further proceedings of Ga ribaldi compromising the success of the revolu tion, so far as the Two Sicilies are concerned, it is equally unlikely. France and England, if not exactly assenting parties to its objects, are pledged to non-intervention with them them selves. and to the prevention of interference by the other Powere. It is only the prosecution of his designs against Rome and Venice that can make them act hostilely to Gari baldi, aud for these Sardinia will not be held responsible, If she gives no encou ragement to tbem, and consequently will not lose her newly acquired rights in Naples. Her acquisition of the Two Sicilies, once'rathied by the vote of their population, will be a title good against all the world. It remains to be seen whether the Liberator, who has exhibited such splendid military quali ties throughout the whole of this movement, will risk his reputation for judgment and accurate calculation by pushing the cam paign further at present. He must know that be c??oot Stance ami^er l*fr yithout involving in tuin and death the crowds ot gal lant Italian youtha who will bb tempted to fol low his fortunes. The odds are just now too many against him for him to hope to win for the people of Borne and Venice the liberties that he has conquered for their compatriots. Although daring and reckless of life where he sees an important object to be gained, Garibaldi Is not a man to run a muck against improbabi lities. the more eepeciallj when he knows that by waiting a short time the chances that he covets will be placed within his reach. Nothing would gratify the partisans of despotism more than to see him rush blindly on the obstacles that are opposed to the completion of his Italian programme. His own good sense will prevent him committing such a folly; but should the in toxication of success overpower it. the cool head that inaugurated all these movements will Infer?0** to save Italy from the consequences of bis too tod*nt zeal. As the Dictator was expected In Naples no the 7th. the Mxt arrival will probably bring a? the decrees esta Wishing a provisional got era rnent until the will of the people can be ascer tained. It is to be hoped that the change has been quietly effected, and that the persecutions and sufferings in which It originated haze marked their triumph by no violent excesses of any kind. The Ji-'umsi Donation- to the Fourcx.?We publish in another column the replies of the au thorities of Washington, Baltimore and Phila delphia to August Belmont, in acknowledgment of the amount donated to the police force of those cities out of the handsome sum presented by the Japanese Ambassadors for that purpose. Thir teen thousand dollars, we believe, was the pro portion allotted to the police of New York, and that sum, we understand, has been misappropri ated by our Police Commissioners, by deposit ing it in some fund or other for the benefit of the widows and orphans of policemen, instead of dividing it among the men. It was clearly the intention of the Japanese Princes to reward the individual policemen who kept order during the procession, at the ball, and around their apartments at the Metropolitaa Hotel ?thus in suring them quietness and comfort during their stay in the city?and therefore we conceive thai the di-posal made of the mosey by the Com missioners was a misappropriation. Tbe money was designed for the polios themselves, and not for their posterity; and we will venture to say that most of them would prefer to receive their ten dollars, or whatever the proportion per capita may be, just now, when the winter is approaching; and it may be an object to men with moderate salaries, some of whom may be discharged from the foroe at any time. The probability is, that with the present disposition of tbe money, it will be ap propriated to some political purpose, possibly to reward some favorites of the Commissioners, or to compensate for servfoee rendered to the re publican party in the coming election. In die posing of donations tbe Intention of the donors should be ft'.thfullj carried out, and we hardly think it is with regard to tbe share of the Japa nese gift to tbe New York police. Assembly Nomkitiob*.?The Breckinridge wing of the democracy In foe Fourth Assembly district of Kings oounty have renominated James Darcy for member of Assembly, and it is stated that he is conddent, not only of re ceiving tbe nomination of foe other wing, bat also of securing his re-election.
