The greatest excitement prevailed throughout last evening to ascertain the result of the contest in Pennsylvania. The returns that hare reached tis may be found tinder the appropriate head in another column. The steamship North Briton, which left Liver pool on the 27tli nnd Londonderry on tlie 21th nit., passed Father Point at six o'clock las' evening. Iler European dati-a are one day later than those we have yet published: but as the telegraph wires between St. Thomas and River du I/>np were down la-t night, r e were unable to receive her news. We rcr ved yesterday intelligence of the total Inaa of the steamship Cannaugbt, of the (>alway line while on the passage from Bt. Johns N. F., f >r Boston. In the account of the disaater which re publish it is stated that on the evening of Saturday last, when about one hundred and flf:y milcs from Boiton. the ship sprang aleak in the engine room and in spite of every effort to keep her free the leak gsined so rapidly as to finally j extinguish the fires.

On the other hand it appears that Foster's majority in hiladelphia. trom the returns reported, is be tween four and five thousand, which is some two or three thousand better than the repub lican estimate. But, almost without an excep tion. where the first reports of an important elecuon indicate a decisive revolutionary re sult in our political affairs, it is safe to conclude that the popular majority will be increased rather than diminished by the full returns. We shall therefore experience no surprise if the majority for Curtin in Pennsylvania should exceed fifteen, twenty, or even twenty fire thousand. At all events, enough is known 10 enable us to form a final opinion with re gard to the vote of Pennsylvania in November. It will oe Lincoln. The hopes of the conserve Uvea now rest upon New York. They have a majority in this SUte against the revolutionary anti slavery crusade of the republican party of at least fifty thousand. A few days will deter mine whether It is to be mustered into a solid column, or frittered away. We have no satisfactory returns at hand from Ohio. Indiana. Iowa or Mlnne-ota. at the time of closing these remarks; but. from the results in Pennsylvania, it is probable that the whole brunt of the battle now rests upon New i ork. M*. Limisat Bi:kirk Tn?: Nuw York Cham ;,tR ?r <>>**?< *-Mr. I.indsay, the free lance in diplomacy, who has come over here from I-ogland to agitate the removal of sundry re strictions on commerce, the opening of our coasting trade and the abolition of the right of capture of private property at sea. addressed the Chamber of Commerce last evening, in a speech which will he found in another column. The speech reiterates the points of that he de livered some days since in Boston, without the addition of any new matter?upon which we commented on a previous occasion. We can only repeat that Mr. I.indsay can achieve nothing here at this time of political excite ment, but he may learn much. It is desirable that uniform rules shall be adopted for the guidance of navigation; bat the opening of the coasting trade to foreign fltgs, and the aban donment of our volunteer system of naval de fence, we cannot concede, with safety to our ?elves and justice to our national Interests llis labors may do something towsrds awaken ing oar widely extended mercantile communi ty to a uniformity of action regarding their in terests. from which good may flow. PtiTisM Punters o.v Tun* Tiurxta,?We have already alluded to the fact tbst while the I rince ol ale* h?s been journeying through North America, his little brother" Alfred has been representing the borne government at the ether end of the world.

Laaa ?! the ttlra?ihlp Cmua||lit> ! In another column will be found tbe deuils of the burning of the steamship Connaught, one of the last constructed and finest vessels of the Galway line. From tbe statement of her cap- , tain, it appears that ou the evening of Satur j day, tbe tith inst., when about one hundred and fifty miles east ot Boston, she sprang aleak in the engine room. Notwithstanding the exer tions made to keep it below the lires, it began towards morning to gain rapidly, and finally extinguished them. About half past nine A. M. on Sunday smoke was discovered issuing from the aft smoke hole, and the flames and water jointly made such bead that the passengers were driven on deck. It soon became evident that there were no hopes of saving the vessel, and preparations were accordingly made to abau don her. Fortunately, the steamer was abun dantly provided with boats, and although the first launched was stove by the heavy sea which was running at the time, tbe remaining six were got off with the whole of the passengers and crew. 591 in number. A brig, the Minnie Scbitfer, which had observed the steamer s sig nals of distress, bore down to them about noon, and by half-past nine in the evening all the pas sengers were safely placed on board of her. No opinion has as yet been offered as to the origin of tbe leak. Captain Leach is unable to explain bow it occurred, the vessel being a new one, built of iron and divided into water-tight compartments. Iier workmanship was of the best and most substantial description, and she was justly regatded as one of the finest vessels afloat. The discovery of fire so soon after the leak was detected, and the rapid progress which the flames made after the alarm was given, supply to our mind a clear explanation of the whole accident. There can be no doubt that this no ble vessel owes her destruction to the same cause by which bo many English steamers, amongst others the Royal William, have been lost, namely, spontaneous combustion. Tbe soft English coal which is commonly used on board these steamers frequently ignites from the heat evolved in the decomposition of tbe eulphoret of iron which it contains. Even at the entrances of the pits the slack or refuse coals in which decomposition bus been has tened by the heaps being saturated with rain are frequently to be seen in combustion from this cause. If, as there is reason to believe from the statement of the captain, the fire had been smouldering in the coal bunks for some time, the expansion of the vessel's plates by the beat unquestionably occasioned the leak. We do not see how in any other way such an acci dent in a new and substantially built iron ves sel could have occurred. As there is no calamity without some com pensating benefit, there are two valuable lessons which the loss of this noble steamer will im press upon shipowners. The first is the culpa bility of their sending their vessels to sea with out a sufficient number of boats to provide for the Bafety of the passengers and crew in the event of shipwreck. In tbe present case, owing to the humane and liberal precautions of tbe Galway company, nearly six hundred beings were preserved from tbe certain death to which they would have been expoeed had they been on board some of our American vessels under the same circum stances. Our laws should be so framed as to leave no alternative on this point to ship owners. No passenger, or, Indeed, any other kind of vessel, should be allowed to leave our ports without passing an Inspection which would satisfy the authorities that she was pro vided with the number of boats requisite to accommodate the full number of those on board In the next place, it is to be hoped that the lorn of this fine vessel will have tbe effect of impressing upon .-teanvhip companies tbe dan gers resulting from the use of bituminous coal. , As a general rule, no coal in which pyrites abound in considerable quantity should be employed at sea. There may be a disadvan tage, both in point of economy aad speed, in u?ing other fuel, but humanity dictates that these considerations should exercise no weight where tbe safety of hiunan life is concerned. Resignation oi Juxji Pikhrkpovt Rc MARKsni.K Lkttkr.- We publish in another column a remarkable letter addressed yester day by Judge Plerrepont to Governor Morgan, resigning his office as Judge of the Superior Court, on the ground of the wretched accommo dation afforded for a court room, while millions are expeoded In all sorts of extravsganoe aad public plucder. "More than six years ago," be observes, "the old City Hall was burned down, and the court took temporary refuge In the fireman's lofts of nu engine bouse. It has been compelled to re main there ever since.'' Three years ago the bar held a meeting and passed resolutions de claring ' the rooms unfit for the transaction of its business, ruinous to the health and danger ous to the lives of those who were obliged to utiend within them." Yet not a stone has yet been laid for a new court. Under these cir cumstam ?*. Judge l'ierrepont declares that, as "tbe freedom of vacation has restored him to Ms former health, be is not willing to imperil it again by daily confinement in poisoned air." Tbe Judge is perfectly right. Ills admirable letter draws a graphic picture of our city government, to which we invite tbe attention of our re aders. He truly says that "no man is held re-ponslble for anything, and no one op pears to have tbe power to do anything but mischief.'' lie points out the inroneistenjy of lavishing money upon the entertainment of foreign princes, and yet neglecting to provide a building for the administration of public jus tice. or "to construct a government which can protect us in the enjoyment of our lives, our liberties and our properties."' Tbe affairs of the city are every day proceeding from bad to worse. ' making harlots of our women and rogues of our men.'' This satire upon our folly is itistly merited, and we are glad to see Judge l'ierrepont exhibit so much indepen dence as to tell the truth, however unpalatable it msy be to thousands ainoog us. His letter ought to be read, marked, learned and digest ed by every cltiaen. As to our court rooms and other public buildings, they are disgraceful, and unworthy of the character of the Empire City of tbe United States, the centre of its wealth and tbe great rmporii m of its < "tnmeroe. The ?roundtela who are plundering us every year have other fish to fry besi *es attending to the proper business for which they were elect ed. and they will pursue this game to the end ! of the chapter, till the people rise rp and make a revolution which will clew out this Angeaa stable of the corruptions which have accumu latvd in It for bo many yea" British Md America* Jcwraallsm c""*

It is a fact which ought to be pretty well known by thto time that one of our cardm prlnoiplee w to glee everybody fair p ay. an< to treat the topic* of the day with entire free dom fiom bias or prejudice of any kind wba ever It ie in thle spirit that we have paid par ticular attentiop to the American tour of the Prince ot Wales. At all the ^ ^ royal party have visited we have had one or more reporters especially detailed toiwn e down exact accounts of what was said a done by everybody concerned in the recep tion, official and otherwise, and to send them without delay and by telegraph. And in no one instance has the Hkkauj of the day failed to give the public full information as to what the Prince did on the previous one Ourl special despatches from Halifax, St. Johns and other places in the provinces cost a great deal of mosey; but we believe that if anything is worth doing at all it is worth doing well. We have thus been able, thanks to the tele- i graph aud our own reporters, to give a de tailed history of the Priuoe s tour. It has no been a dry record ot the main events of the journey : but the absurd, amusing and ludlorous side as well as the more Beiious view has been taken. That is our system. We have a right to call it ours, for although it is now known as the American system, the Nkw York kiui.o was the first journal that ever tried the expert ment of reporting passing events ? they take place, and giving pen aud ink photo graphs of all remarkable scenes and incident.. . The English call this "sensation journalism MU*?. T* MM .J*>? is quite different from ours, although the cheap LoLdou dally press is rapidly making wnova ,ions aud copying from us. TheLondonTW, and other high priced papers adhere to the old plan; they are intensely heavy, terribly re^ spectable, and permeated with ^^ment, 0Pf the most profound Terence for the three estates of the realm. In theli articles, reports and letters, they often pay more attention to style than to facto. and consider manner more ?^Port^t th^ matter; they are awfully shocked at the free and easy journalism of the United States, and Sold up their hands in holy horror at our " beads." They cannot understand why wedo not treat distinguished persons with that awfn respect which is considered their due in ,alkdU this is very English, ami therefore to be expected. We know that our system is the best, because it is founded on this theory. the news first: other things may be considered afterwards. We have given the news of the princely tour to the London rimes and other British journals a week or ten dayt before they obtained it from any other source. The 7W* sent over a special correspondent *^'?lUr have been eysomatically forestalled by the arrival of the American accounts. a fortnight before them. It was well that this happened, as the letters of the reporter re ferred to were not only singularly stupid but were full of the most absurd blunder* M to matter, of fact, statistics, and go neral Information which is at the hands of every traveller. We find, in a letter from New York, that convicts are sent to Blackwell's Island "for life, and almost Invaria bly pardoned out directly afterwards; thit battles between a Western tribe of ludians and the -settlers of New England have been fought on top of the-Palisades, and many other items more novel than correct Nor was this veracious chronicler any better Informed as to the history and geography of the British ro vinces. As is very properly hinted in one of bis letters, the Engltoh people know more ?f Mesopotamia than Nova Scotia, of Timbnctoo than of New Brunswick, of Nineveh than of Canada. The London Vtnts correspondent was careful not to enlighten hto readers, but could not refrain from a sneer at the United States, in ? letter from New Brunswick, advising to buy lands there rather than to be deluded by "smart'* agents who deal In Mtostoeippl swamps. The Tirms has so great and generally well deserved a reputation for its correspondence, that everybody has been much disap^ pointed at the way in which so capital a subject as the Prince*, visit ha. been slaughtered. It to idle for the foreftn reporters to attempt to divert attention from their failure by abusing the American journalists, and then writing pathetic letters to the same papers ask log for the courtesies due to rrmfmrt. bnch tricks only expose still more openly the disap pointmeot snd cbsgrln which they are intended to hide. We claim the reports of the Trince of Wales* tour as triumphs of the American e ver the British system of journalism. And it does not speak well for the profession on the other side of the water, that, while every one attached to the reyal party has behaved in a manner cal culated to win the esteem and even affection of all with whom they have come in contact, the only persons who have made any trouble, or behaved discourteously in any way, have been the representatives of the English and Ca nadian press. IM us hope that they will even tually be taught better manners. Tin PriNCK or Wai.iw akb the Nsw Yoiu FiH.iMniiRn. Th*' proprietors of our fashion able millinery establishments, of the great Broadway bazars, the jewellers. dressmakers, Uulor* and fancy good- dealer*, owe a very large debt of gratitude to the Prince of Wales. Never before has their business been so active. The bent artificer* in the metropolis have had their band* full of work dnring the last nix week*, end now. as they are just completing their labor of love, we have collected some in formation as to it* results, giving an account of the chef flWM, in the way of dreeee*. jewel ry and other matter* of personal adornment, manufactured expressly for the ball. This in formation will be found in another part of to day's paper. New York Is the centre of taste and refinement, as well as of trade, finance and commerce for this country, and our modtsfe* and cunning worker* in the precious metals and costly gem* are hut a li?* le behind the best Paris artists, la fact, many of the best workmen and women in the gay city bar* found New Y'ork a more profitable field of operations than Paris, snd have exchanged the Boulevards for Broadway. As many of our belles have sent abroad for their dresses, while others bare patronized native or expa triated crtlsts. the Prince'* ball will give to con noisseur* in crinoline a splendid opportunity to criticise the vartons styles by the toet o* abso lute comparison City Politic* and Polttlctaa*. Ever the smash up of the democratic party at Charles.'on end .Baltimore, we have had a general bedlaC confusion amongst the cliques and political fac tions of this city, with every appearance of the city being repYeseuted at Washington and Albany by a set of men totally unqualified for those important posi tions. During the last three er four weeks the squabbles of the fag ends of the numerous frig menta have been going on in our midst, and the conventions that have assembled and nominated their candidates have put forward representa tives of at least half a dozen factions. Among those nominated for the State Assembly are several members of tbe last Legislature who were found voting with the piratical crew of that body; and among the list of Congressional candidates are some of tbe ex-Aldermen who have brought disgrace upon the city by their action at the City Hall, and several other worth less philosophers who have no idea of the duties of a member of Congress. There is, however, a gleam of hope that a better order of things is about to take place, and that the political vagabonds who have had everything their own way so long will be driven back to their hiding places, from which they should have never emerged. The forma tion of a Union electoral ticket is working like magic upon these barroom combinations, and is destroying the feuds which have given the pothouse politicians their food and stock in trade. The great outpouring of the masses at tbe Union ratification meeting Monday night is one of the significant features of this ne w order of things. That assemblage, in and around the Cooper Institute, is the triumph of the inde pendent press and public opinion over the' combined efforts of the trading politicians of all grades and importance, and is an emphatic warning to all such small fry politicians as John A. Green, Gid. Tucker and Jim Brady, who are trying to elect Lincoln, that they must stand from under, or they will be crushed by the onward march of this mighty conservative army. There is now no mistaking the signs of tbe times, that whatever other States may do there is a fair prospect of a triumph of the Union forces in the Empire State over the sec tional republican party and their new allies?Green, Tucker and Brady; not, however, a victory of the Regency faction, tbe Tammany faction, the Moxart faction, the Douglas faction, or the Bell faction, but a triumph of a new Union party that has sprung up. as if by magic, from tbe ruins left by the crazy politicians at Charleston and Baltimore? a party that owes its origin to tbe Indignation in the public mind toward the action of the sel fish and unscrupulous politicians that have so long had the control of the parties of the day. This same feeling, so thoroughly aroused upon the Presidential question, is being extended to our local affairs, and there are already symp toms that tbe wrangles of tbe petty, trading ward cabals will be forced to give way to the pres sure, and a better class of men be brought forward for the several offices to be filled at the coming election. Now that the Union electoral ticket haa been completed and emphatically endorced by the people, let aoae attention he paid to the judi cial, county. legislative and Congressional tickets, which are of vital importance to the city. let the buying and selling coalitions, and the worthless philosophers placed in nom ination by them, be cleared away as so much rubbish, and let there be a concert ed action of all Union loving men upon such men for Congressmen as Hon. John Coch rane, that a delegation may be sent to Washing ton from this city that will have some voice in the halls of Congress. Let there be such an arrangement in regard to the Assembly candi dab s that none of thole engaged in the bucca neering operations of last session will find their way back to Albany. Every movement that baa for its objects tbe defeat and overthrow of tbe numerous trading and mercenary political factions that have so long disgraced tbe city, and the selection of worthy and upright men to fill the several city and county offices, and to represent the city at Albany and Washington, will receive our hearty co-oration. Thk Gmcat Annan vr Agai.vst LtxcouV F.i.riTiov? Our republican organs affect to be disgusted at the Union coalition movements aimed at the defeat of Lincoln. We are thus told that there is no principle recognized among these Union elements in their opposition to Lincoln, but that, with ail their lifelong hostilities against each other upon great prin ciples. the various factions concerned are ope rating together for no other object than Lin coin'? defeat Admitting all this to be true, there it still a greet argument in favor of these Union coali tions which completely overshadows all other considerations ; and here it is:?Lincoln is the candidate of a sectional anti-slavery party, pledged to the prosecution of their war against "tbe slave power" until "all the States shall be free States." Tbe rej uhlican programme for the prosecution of this war, tinder lbs forms and pro fessions of constitutions! authority, strikes at the very roots of the constitution. The policy of the republican party, in short, on the subject of slavery. Involves the subjugation of the South ern States to the demands of the abolitionists, or the bloody dissolution of ths Union. To defeat this revolutionary programme it is only necessary to defeat the republican party in this Pieaidential contest and this is argument enough in favor of the fusion of all conserva tive men in the North of all parties against the republicans. Ail governmental measures concerning tbe tatiff. internal improvements, tbe public lands, and all other questions affecting tbe domestic and foreign policy of the next administration at aahington, are as dust in tbe balanoe when weighed against this paramount and vital ques tion of tbe preservation of tbe Union. It can only be presort i d by the adhesion of the fede ral government to the constitution, including the constitutional rights of the 8outb. Under a republican administration?if we look to the latest teachings of Mr. Seward, tbe great beid of hta party?the rights of the*Bonth under the constitution will not be respected, but they will be trampled under foot Ths conssqueuces of Mr. Sewarda pro gramme. which is Mr. Lincoln*, will first bt scenes of discord and strife between tbe federal and Southern local authorities, rapidly culmi nating in tbe secession of some of the Southern Mates and In a civil war. which will be the end of the only popular institutions on the race of the earth competent to make good 'ha Dtvtu ' ,'ight of ttie pvt.ple? cf every notion to govern tt ?*?'ef*lvrt< The pre^rv:itioB cf tiie popular Institutions of ti ts I nion, ps lab listi?<l npon the federal con stitution, therefore, is an ail-snffirfeut argument for the ,'ufion of all good Union men every where agu ins' the republican Presidential ticket. We are waging time in discussing mere party measures, ana party abstractions, and peraonat rivalries of part/ candidates, when the conatitn tioir and the Union are at stake upon the vital issue of the "iireptegsible conflict.'' A Soitbkrk Lion Among Uh.?TMs even ing Mr. Yancey, the great Southern flie-easar, celebrated for bis eloquence and the pecu liarity of his views, will deliver an addrsae at the Cooper Institute, in this city. Of course ba will have a large attendance. Everybody wants to know what he has to say. NEW8 FROM THE NATIONAL CAPITAL. WAftHiMUTjir, Oct. 9, 1800. ouu Dimcrmxs vrrm rur aid cans Despatches were received at the Department of Stats th s morning from our Ministers at Peru and Chile. Is regard t) Peruvian aflalra, Minuter Clay states thst nothing new bad transpired since the date of bu last des patcbts Me, however, expected a definite answer horn Castilla during the ensuing week. What that answer would be of course be bad no means of knowing. Judging from the recent friendly manifestations of Castilla and ether oQicl&ls, be was half persuaded to believe that mat ters would yet be adjusted. A few days, he saya, wlU de termine It one way or the other. The statement that Mr. Biglsr, our Minister to Chile, bad received perm'ssion from our govern moot to return Ik me. Is untrue. The government think It iaexedieat, la llie present unsettled state of affairs between the twe governments, for him to leave his post. Tbo Chilian government soem to be decidedly averse te any honorable or satisfactory adjustment of pending dif ficulties Matters therefore remain in statu quo. TBS DlSTTSBaSrSS AT PANAMA.
