The ball which look place at the Academy of Music *w the mo?t brilliant ?fl?ir of the kind which hat ever been wit bea?ed in New York. All the effort* which were tnade in other part* of the countrj sink into insig nificance in comparison vt ith this the most rauRiiifl cent testimonial of respect and friendship which he Laa yet received. The acene at th? Academy was gorgeous and brilliant in the extreme, anl pre sented the greatest galaxy of genius, wealth and beauty which haa ever been witnessed within the limits of the Empire City. We h?ve devoted it large portion of our space to a description of the v hole affair? the scenes, incidents, celebrated per sons present, Ac., as well as reports of the move ments of the l*rince during the day. The atcamship Pe Soto, from New Orleans 6tli and Havana Sth but, arrived at U.is port last even ing. The general news by 'his arrival is devoid of interest. The sugar market was quiet; the atock in band at Havana and Mataazas amounted to 143,000 boxei, against IC^.000 at the Mue time last year. On the morning of the l^t inst. a Spanish man of war steamer discovered a vessel ashore |ie?r Sierra Morena, which proved to be the Ame rican screw strsmer City of Norfolk, hhe had landed, the night previous, eight hundred as likely negroes as were ever brought from the coast of Africa. Alter the cargo Rnd crew had landed full steam was put on, the valves opened. Iier fted pipes cut, and the City of Norfolk was Leaded seswsrd and abondoued, and it was the ex pectation of her captain that she wou'd aoon founder, but the currrnt.it appears, carried her |t?hore, which led to th? discovery and rapture of roe hundred negroes, together with the crew. The l'slsnce of the cargo had been disposed of. The American officers and crew were sent to Havana Mid confined for a few da/s in the Navy Yard bar racks, and finally sent by the American Con-nil to Jvey West, on the I'nittd States steamer Crusader, which tailed on the eve of the "il. inst. A epecisl meeting of the Board of Supervisors was held yesterday for the purpose of taking up Uie T*x Levy fur confirmation. Mr. Paid/ an rcuDced that the Committee ou Annual Taxes had firep?red the report on the Tax Levy, but it waa tinned only by the minority, although the other two member* acquiesced in it. He therefore pro ceed that the report be taken up and considered until the ethtr members arrived. Mr. Tweed ob jected to the report, a* no distinctive list of Items ?vaa appended to the ordinance. The only item he wa* really opposed to was that of >.'>0,000 for the Central Park, yet he was satisfied that it would Ultimately pass. Mr. Purdy stated that the com inittee wera now ready to formally present their report, signed by a majority. The budget transmitted to the Board by the Comp troller amounted to ?.'>,923tflu2 01. The alter ations and additions proposed by the com mittee were:? For Commissioners of Record, add t72,03?| 26; Almshouse Department, deduct $4 1,591; Reekman street extension, strike ont 92,300. Thcsa would make an addition to the Comptroller s budget of 13*1,111 26. In reference to the proposed appropriation for the Record Com- i fciissioner*. Mr Pordy stat* d that it was inserted in ftbcdience to the mandamus of the Suoreme Court, tut It was done with the understanding that no p symenta would be made on account of it by the Comptroller until the legality of the demand was Mly tested in the coorta. Mr. Tweed moved, on the report being taken up for action, to strike out the special appropriate n of fw.OCQ for mainte- | Cance an 1 government of the Central Park. The motion waa lost by a vote of ten to two Messrs. Tweed and Rrigg* toting in the affirmative. The report and ordinance were accepted and onsm I pioueljr adopted. The body of an old man named Urals Peitr was found dead at 52 Troy street, on Wednesday after ft?e? , by the Ninth pre< i?et police, but for some cause tic Coroner received no notice of tha oceor- [ fence until yeeUrdajV pr essed, it appears, had recently been arrested for Mae pre eacet, which Wtigfced npon M* mind to ? i kan extent that h< de- | termlned to commit suicide. When found, an empty i tumbler and a te:i?p<*'n were lying by Li* nide. ! It has not yet been ascertaio?d what kind of poi- < Son he took, but it ia sapfourd tint Im u?ed Uuda turn. Deceased was sixty five J ears of sge, and Wsa a native of this P ate. An inquest will be I. eld npon the body to day. There was a great deal of mystery in the City Ball yesterday evening. Telegraphic despatches Were sect to the Aldermen and CouncMuitn to at tend an "informal Joint meeting" at seven ?'clock. ' They met. 'twas In a crowd, "bnt they ?banned the reporters, en I so secret was the ttoslnee* of the conclave that nothing could ba ((leaned for the information of the public, ft was rumored that the camus wae political, that it was ft aort of compromise ah n:t the Japanese ball bill, i ftnd a meeting of censure upon aomeboJy or some Committee for the slight to the suppoaad Common Council. It appeared to be a dirk laate.-n' j meeting, for no member would divulge what had keen done, and no clerk was permitted to be pre 1 ?ent. If aomethlng astounding subsequently oc fnea the valance of the pre as csntot be celled In qr.s??; n, ftr. Iobi A<1 ui I ??!??< * I loll uikI I fie 4ext tu?nrcN. Tl ?? d? niuraHz' <1 demoor??y cleared uw i> the nMriietiow nurt opened the channel, in April, and Jane la?t, at Charleston, Wa^hiogt'iu and Baltimore, for tbi* puMiiff of the ami sla very rrpiihMrHU nquiftruD iuto the citadel of th# Cuius. Tb* Noitberii popular tide instantly hi'itan to set into this channel; the Vermont and Maine elections indicated a swelling stream of gte?? power; hut a month later the Pennsylva nia, Ohio and Indiana elections betray a sweep ing current of resistless force, borne upon which, and apparently without further effort, the republican party wljl rise into power. The administrative, government at Washing ton, however, is made up of two co operative department* ? the executive and legislative. The Republicans, though advanced into the possession of the executive department, will be powerless to carry out their party programme, with the legislative, or with either branch of t. opposed to them. That the Senate, during the first Congress at least, of Lincoln's adminls ration, will be opposed to the 'Ing meas ! ures of public policy embodied in ide Chicago I platform, we know. At present the Seuite 1 tands thirty eight democrats to twenty-fire I republicans, two Southern opposition men, and one vacancy, showing an anti republican majority which cannot be overcome, under or I dinary contingencies, until the second Congress of Lincoln's administration. The present House of Representativee is thus divided : ? Republican* Democrats pi Southern opposition , 23 Anti-I^econiptouitcs 8 Vacancies 2 Mr Pennington. the republican second choice candidate, was elected Speaker by the majority vote of 11 8, including three anti Lecomptonites, Georg- Brigps. and one Southern opposition man, lienry Winter Davis. After this achieve ment, too, the republican party in the House found very little Difficulty in carrying out their project*, big and little, except in the matter of the organization of some five new Territories, where they stuck fast between the Wilmot pro : viso and squatter sovereignty. From all this It would appear that while a I conservative opposition majority in the House may be ufed by the republicans upon almost every question except the almighty nigger, this Is the point at wblc6 they will fail. It is of the i highest moment, therefore, to secure a conaer vative anti republican majority in the next House of Representatives, to which Mr. Lincoln, from the White House, will address bis first an nual message. Thus far, for the next Congress, seventy six members of the Home have been eleoled, and thus far the republicans have lost four, having secured bat forty eight In the next, while tbey have fifty-two from the same States in the present House. Tbey have also lost seve ral assistant anti Lecomptonites; so that with anything like proper management among the conservative anti-republican factions in New York and New Jersey, a decidedly conservative Copgress in both branches will be secured for the management of the firtt two years of Lin coln's administration. On the other hand, If our conservative force* in New York and New Jersey choose to let the next Congms go by default, the republicans ma j make good, In these two States, their losses in others, and thus bring themselves within reach of a convenient majority in the House, even upon incurs of groat danger to the public safety. In this city the several democratic fac tions have commenced their Congressional ope rations in a very loose and disjointed way, and one very well adapted to encourage the republicans in their hope of se veral gains on this island. Nor can we i hold out any promise of adlfferent result so long as the republican candidate here and there has the advantage of a division of his oppo nents upon two. three, four, fire or half a down candidates. In this business there must be a new shuffle of the cards, or the game is lost If the Umpire State cannot be recovered upon the Presidential issue, she may still turn the scale in the next Congress so decidedly against the republicans as to check them in their "Irrepresflble conflict" for the first two yeais. at least, of Lincoln's term of office; or she may throw a power into their hands in the House which will be the beginning of the re publican programme of universal free labor, peace or war. In this view of the matter the peace, the bu?lnesa interests and general safe ty of the country now depend much upon the State, but chUfly upon the conservative city of New York. The Rk?oih>atiox or thk Lbaders in thk Last Lr.utiil.ATVRK? The black republican press throughout the State are in testacies over the renominations of Messrs. Littlejohn, McQuade and Myers, who were at the head and In the front ranks of nearly all the combinations for the peculating schemes of the last session, and were the acknow ledged leaders of that Infamous Legisla ture. One of the leading journals of that party In the Interior, of the Seward school, comes out with a glowing endorsement, and says:? "We %re glad to see that those staunch and efficient republicans- P. C. Littlejohn, of Oswego; Cap tain Austin Myers, of Syracuse, and James McQuade.'of Oneida have been renominated to the Assembly." This endorsement is exten siroly copied by the rural press of the Seward W n i! republican faith, and fully coincided In l?y them. We l-nve for a long time charged the republi can party with being one of the most corrupt political organizations of the day. and its lead ers the advocates and authors of the venality at Albany; but we did not expect to see their party crgaos acknowledging the fact so univer rally as has been done lo thi? cose. The fact of their admitting that those who were foremost In? and bectnse they were the captains and generals In the buccaneering cru sade* of last winter, are therefore "staunch act} efficient republican*," at onse clinches everything that the HraAt.n has said, and makes fwsbrfoting one of the oardinal principles of the party, and the most Im portant plank in tteir platform. With this acknowledgment on the part of the party organs reprosentli g the #ew*rd Weed Interest, the public know what to expect If they are con tinned in power. Under that programme the clt Irene of this metropolis may look for a gene ral Invasion of their rights at Albany as long as there is a rich placer to be found In the city. When there is no longer a green spot leit on Manhattan Island, the inhabitants of the interior towns and cities may expect a deeoeat "pen them. Hy that time we Inagtne that ?"! fi.My i ri1' r*?ard !l:f fry of free n'g gers and free Territories, through which they 1 manage to keep la office. We gee ao prospect , of a change until then, for the people in the ; Intel lor spend to much time looking after the ] well fed and fat negroes of the Southern States that they have no time to attend to the rights of the inhabitants of their own Slate. The Prlncc'a Ball Last Might. When the Mayor's Secretary met the Duke of Newcastle at Quebec it was arranged that the reception of 11. R H. In the commercial metro polls of the Union should include a military i parade, a ball, and a firemen's torchlight pro I cxt ? Ion. We all*have done, and some of us | have suffered, the military parade on Thurs ? day. The next step in the programme was the | ball, which came off last night at the Academy ol Muftic, and was. as might have been expect ed from the elaborate character of the prelimi naries, a very brilliant ffte. Tbe accounts of our reporters will supply the ' outside public with all the information to be j gathered bh to tbe ball and its participants. It ww a reunion of the culture, wealth and fashion i of tbe great city, such as must have surprised | pome of the distinguished strangers in whose ' honor it was gotten up. Since tbe Dickens ball, given some twenty years ago at tbe Park thea tre, there has never till now been such a turn out of what is called the npper ten thousand of our population. This Mite legion was necessarily cut down two-thirds for the Prince's ball, and the exclusiveness of the affair made it still more interesting and tempting. The Ja panese ball was a vulgar jam, and the people who arranged the Irving place affair took a lesson from tbe blunders of the Aldermen, and rigidly adhered to the limit originally fixed, and based upon calculations as to tbe capacity of the theatre. if is to be regretted that anything should have taken place even to cause a momentary interruption to tbe general pleasure of tbe oc casion ; but unfortunately one of those jeeur rences which are owing to mismanagement and want of proper caution in some quarter happened in the midst of the enjoyment A portion of the flooring gave way, but happily without serious consequences to life or limb. Such a thing, however, should not aad could not have occurred bad proper precaction been taken at tbe right time. Tbe accounts of this aristocratic-iepublican democnttic court ball will attract agreat deal of attention abroad. Comparing them with then' of the Dickens fft?,%re can see how New York has changed and progressed in wealth, taste and refinement in the shor! space of twenty years. As for the Prince aid his suite tbey will manage to obtain, even ii the very short time that they remain with m, a pretty fair idea of New York in its bett clothes. Everybody, high and low, seems to >e anxious that our royal guest should leave "Jew York with the pleasantest souvenirs, and to believe that such will be the facts in the can. The Firemen's Grand Torchllg&t Proc?f ?Ion T*>Nlfht The turnout of the New Yorl Fire De partment to night in honor of tb-* Prince of W?lea will be the grandest and mo?t imp res tive spectacle of the kind that has ever been witnessed. Close upon lire thousand members of the force, including two companies from Brooklyn, will take part in It, and their en gines, which have been newly furbished up and ornamented for the occasion, will exceed in the splendor and novelty of their decora tions all previous displays of a similar charao U>r. The effect of such a pageant moving by torchlight through streets swarming with hu man beings, and whoee windows and balconies will present a brilliant array of beauty and fashion, cannot but be in the highest degree Imposing. No scene that has as yet greeted the eyes of our royal visiter and his suite since their arrival in this country will have pro- ^ duoed half the impresaion upon them that this must leave upon their minds. Military reviews and parade* they are accustomed to on a scale that we do not pretend to vie with; but no where else can there be witnessed a spectaole like that presented by a full turnout of our Fire Department? as organisation unique in its constitution, and unequalled for the fine phy ileal development, the gallantry and di? Intereetedness of the young men of whoa it is oomposed. The Prince cannot fail to be deeply interested by such an exhi bition of civic patriotism, and we are much mistaken if he does not derive from it a better idea of the hardy and energetic character of our people than from any thing else that be has observed sinoe his arrival amongst us. In order that the spectacle may not be shorn of any portion of its effect, we trust that the police arrangements will be strictly enforoed. The streets along which the procession is to p?M should be kept Blear for It from curb to curb. There will be no difficulty in carrying out this regulation if the police are properly dis tributed and are good tempered, as well as firm, in the enforcement of their orders. In no city in the world are the m? n more managea ble or patient on such occasions. Bat to prevent theee qualities being too severely tried, as on the day of the Prince's arrival, we would recommend that the order fixed for the prooea sion be strictly observed, and that there be no deviation from the time set down in the programme. It is a circumstance worthy of remark that the Prince of Wales, since he has ret foot on our shores, has been punctual to the minute in all the appointments that he has tiiade. \Sa would recommead the practice as not entirely beneath the observance of our Yankee sovereigns. Taktxo Lbmom mo* thk Emcmv? Tint Rn rt M.icAVB Miking Votkm.? The black republi cans do not despise the oustotn of profiting by tie lessor,* of the enemy, it would appear, for they are makirg desperate efforts to "manu facture" natnrali/ed citizens in advance of the November election. The republican journals, it will be remembered, were accustomed to de nounce Tammany Hall in unmeasured term* for "manufacturing" cit>ens previous to former elections; but now the politicians of their own party, it seems, are almost entirely monopoii rtng that branch of business. In tact, we learn tbat their artlvlty la this line quite eclipees Terr ninny In Its palmiest days The TrSmnt if taking considerable trouble to explain how "any adult male Immigrant of Eorop*an birth" can become entitled to vote, and reminds this 1 class? whom It expects of course to go for the republican ticket that tbey cannot vote unlese they are naturallred on or before the 2f?th insl, urging them at the same time to looe not a noment in completing the proeeea. The i TT?t "fac'ure of *>y tV i -Jf f?<-.-?v was hold by the Tribune and other republican journals as a highly immoral prooeedlng, but it appears to be estimated somewhat differently
when practised by republican politicians. Iu this instance It is the judge's ball that gored the farmer's ox, and so, in the words of the fable, "that alters the case." Tfe? rormstloa of LUeola's Cabinet? ConniiBicmtat of tli? Bqubbli for tbe Since tbe split of the democratio party at Charleston and Baltimore, and the baby twad die of the leaders of the opponents to the re publican Party in Pennsylvania, have given that State to tbe republicans with such an over whelming majority that it places tbe election of Lincoln almost beyond a contingency, we find tlS" generals in the rail splitting army engaged In a squabble over tbe formation of Linooln's Cabinet Tbe combinations are already develop ing themselves, with indications of a free light and a break down of tbe administration at the first start Foremost In this controversy are to be found Seward, Weed, Greeley and Cameron. It is said that Senator Seward refuses to take any position In the Cabinet or to go a* Minister to England, but prefers a re election to the Uuited States Senate, where he can hold tbe hammer over the administration, and torm such combinations with democratic Senators as will enable him to administer summiry punish meat to every person engaged in the conspiracy against bis nomination at Chicago. With this programme agreed upon with Thurlow Weed, tbe latter is demanding, it is reported, the ap pointment of Moses H. Grinnell as Secretary of tbe Treasury? a position that will give to hia friends the handling of the money and many of the most Important offices. On the other hand, the friends of Greeley are poshing j the claims of the Spruce street philosoper for Postmaster General, an office that has its agents in every town, village and city In the Union. Prominent among Greeley's aids In this work are to be found David Dudley Field and W. Cullen Bryant, ol the Post, and one part of the programme adopted to bring about this result is tbe election of members to the next Legisla ture of their way of thinking, and opposed to Weed, with a view to either defeat the re election of Seward, or force blm to consent to and ask for Greeley's appointment They have already gone so far under this arrangement as to select their candidate for Speaker of the next State Aesembly in the person of R. M. Blatchford, nominated In tbe Seventh Assembly district of this city; Weed's candidate for the same post is Mr. Littlejohn. We thus have an interesting fight in embryo. Tbe Tribune philosoper Js endeavoring to bring to bis aid Simon Cameron and Chevalier Forney, of Pennsylvania; but Cameron will have nothing to do with the lat ter, excepting where be can make a tool of him to accomplish his objects; and since it is through tbe enormous majority of that State that the election of Lincoln is secured, Cameron will claim the honor of placing "Honest Abe" in tbe White House, and has no idea of playing second fiddle to any of these parties. On the contrary, be is setting himself up ar the administration, and will force Weed, Seward, Greeley and the whole batch of them to take just such seats aa be may select, or there will be a general row. In the centest for United States Senator In Pennsylvania In 1(155, Cameron, who had been acting with the democracy until after the election the fall pre | riois, managed to get the caucus nomination fron the American republican party for that portion. A portion of the party bblted and coalnated another person. In this bolt they vere sustained by the Tribune, m well as Weed ind Seward, but the Winnebago chief informed (Mm '-that they would elect him or no one," ind carried his point, the election being post poned until the next winter, and a democrat, Mr. Blgler, elected. The position of Cameron is a member of the United States Senate will i rnable him to carry out the same programme In regard to Lincoln's Cabinet; and as he never forgets nor forgives a political enemy, there Is a slim chance for either Weed or Greeley using him to further their schemes Be will hare nothing to do with them further than he finds it necessary to use them to punish tome one else. It will thus be seen that the oonflict over the spoils of the new republican administration bids fair to use up Lincoln before be puts on the ('residential robes. If be steer* the republican craft with the mixed crew and wrangling cap tains safely through the shoals and quicksands of the first six months, it may well be recorded as a miracle in the nineteenth century. Take It altogether, this personal quarrel over the Cabinet will be the moet interesting feature of the canvass from now to the f>th of November. Lincoln having then gone through with the forms of election, we shall see a squabble of theee philosophers ever that question, until after the 4th of March, such as was nevar before known in this country. VixpiCATiox or tux Fcomvx Slo e Law tx Ottawa.? An instance of the vindication of the Fugitive Slave law has just occurred in Ot tawa, which shows that even in the moet north ern part of this State, in immediate contiguity | to the depot of the underground railroad, juries can be found to carry out constitutional laws without regard to prejudloe. The case referred to Is that of the United States against John Boseack and others, the defendants baring, in October last, rescued a fugitive from Missouri from the hands of an officer after be bad been delivered up upon a warrant from a United States commissioner. The defendants were duly convicted by a jury, and were called up for sentence at tbe present term cf the United States District Court Bossack, in answer to the question why sentecse should not be pa/>*ed, it appears, read a paper, in which be claimed exemption from punishment on the ground that the Fugltire Slave law was unconstitutional, and protesting against the action of the court. Judge Ptummond, instead of disregarding such a plea, as be might have dene, and proceeding to sentence the prisoner forthwith, entered into aa elaborate reply to Bossack's protest, and ably vindicated the constitutionality of tbe law and the jurisdiction of tbe oourt This was an unusual proceeding; but It may hare a good sffect upon tbose violator* of the law who lean upon the weak support of tbelr own interpreta tion of law as a protection against punish mf tt, and deliberately become criminals in th? fallacious hope that what they denominate con science will screen them frcm the just penalty of crime. Ilossnck was fined a hundred dollars and sent to prison for ten d*y? -a very mild p?inbt:ment considering 'he nature of the *?i r re. Palace"* Omy la N?w 1 oik? l(a Political ?Igalflctact. Tbe scene thi* was wi nessedin N*w York on Thursday, In the recepiioa of the heir appa r*nt to the crown of England, will convey a political lesson of great siguifloduce to the peo ples and the dynasties of Europe. It to not in the fact that the Prince of Wale* has been received here in a m inner eminently becoming to his worth and tbe private charac ter be has chosen to assume among us that the importance of that popular demonstration lie#. The greatest import of the event lies in the fact that the act was voluntary, and the feeling that accompanied It sprang spontaneously from the hearts of the people. With the excep tion of tbe neoearary orders for the parade of tbe military, no effort was made or was re quislte on the part of any of the publio autho rities to stimulate the movement of the masses. Everywhere they poured forth of their own accord, and not only Mew York, but the circumjacent cities and towns contributed their tens of thousands to the gathering of wel come. The streets, except in the immediate' neighborhood of the line of the procession, were abandoned, the stores and places of bu?i ness were closed, all the publio and private offices were emptied of their wonted occupants, tbe labors of the day were suspended by all classes, for all thronged to greet the welcome stranger. Yet he was not looked upon as a stranger. The bond of kindred was felt In every bosom, and its utterances welled forth from every lip. But while all the rest of the city was left in comparative solitude, every available spot from which there was a possibility of catching a sight of the face of the Prinoe was thronged, piled and crowded with people. From the Battery to Madison square ? a distance of Are miles there was but one continuous mass of human beings. No class or nationality formed an ex ception to the general good feeling. Our adopted citizens of Irish, Scotch, German and other national origin were as numerously re presented and as hearty and sincere in their testimony of respect and kindly feeling as were the Americans. The most perfect order and good humor pre vailed, too. Though the police were scattered singly and at.lntervals along the line of march, no effort was necessary to preserve order; that was kept by the people themselves; and It is a remarkable fact that, though the procession was delayed far beyond the expected time, the people held their plaoes, and the dinner hour passed without diminishing the throng. Nor was this peculiar to any one class of people. In the first class hotels that stand on Broadway the dinner gong soondsd without avail; no one would leave the view point until after the Prince had passed, and the five o'olock repast waited until after seven for its con turners. Another fact worthy of notice was the volun tary twining of the English And American oolors by all olasses of people. Not only tbe public buildings, but numerous private ones, were decorated with the kindred flags, and carmen deoorated their horses, and all the ap plianoes of the people exhibited in some way the emblems of fraternal union. And all this was done by each individual of his own im ?pulse and at his own expense. It was a spon taneous exhibition of the same feeling that dictated the display when tbe Alantic telegraph was laid, only far more intense and pervad ?lag. Among the people the concord of the two nations wss a general theme of conversa tion and congratulation. The popular idea re garding them was frequently expressed in a rough but energetic way: "If they hang tog?th er they may defy the world;" and In some form or other this was the universal sentiment, and the desire for national concord was heightened by the amiable and modest bearing of tbe Prinoe. To the dynasties and monarchical systems of Europe th? Increasing of these friendly ties between the United States and England ? the only ooiin tries In the world possessing truly popolar representative governments ? U of vast ly more importance than the hopes and fears that attend the path of Garibaldi la Iuly, the heartburnings that pervade Germtny, or the aims of the crowned heads and a*pir vtlon* of the popular heart throughout Europe. The Prince of Walet must carry back with him V? England, and to the throne he will one day ascend, the conviction that Eaglish liberty has a hold on the popular feelings of this eonfede ration, which is of more value to It than all the alliances that the old and falllog system* of Europe can offer to it. In the order, without the external signs of government, which pervaded the hundreds of thousands that gathered to wel come him, he has had the best pro it of the \ irtue of free institutions; and in the enthusiastic out pouring of a free people to welcome the heir ct a friendly crown, he may dad the assurance that true liberty is the moet conservative ele ment in political organizations. Bad MisssiacBt at tk? Prtan's Re (ipllM~Wh? Is to BlSMt It Is impossible to describe In any ordinary way the disappointment and vexation of the people in upper Broadway, caused by the mis mansgement of some of the persons In authority on the day before yesterday. It bad been offi cially nnncunced that the Prince would arrive at the Battery at one o'clock, and, as there were no speeches, he might reasonably expect to be at his hotel four, or half past four at I the outside. With this understanding the ladies aud children, to the number of tens of thousands, took their place* in the shop windows, in balconies. In hotels, on the tops of bouses. In the streets? In fact, everywhere? as early as two o'clock, and tome came before that hour. The cutter was an hour behind time, then there was a review on the Bat* teiy, another at the City Ilall. and a series of al moet interminable delays, so that th? Prlnoe did not arrive at Canal street until th? day was very far advanced. Beyond this point sll th.it the people Could see was a slight figure, dresstd in scarlct uniform, wi'h a white plumed , chnpex.i which rose and Tell amine a host of | bnyonets glistening In the Rusllght. Mat>rs would have been still worse had not the Mayor I Interfered arid ?topp?-d the Park parade. As it wns, the crowd in the be?t part of the city con'd not see the Prince, and he was deprived of what would have been the very finest view In all of his reception, namely the ride through tipper Broadway and around Union and Madi ?oa squares, on a planrant autum day, with the bright st n nhit ing. and the people's facet beam |pg with pleaMire. We do not desire to speak harshly of at. \ body; but as the procession was er.tlrely wiiltury. the weight of public censure ' mnst fhll rn the c< trwmider n( the forces. ' v ?? r# ? ,1 i ~??,'v ft-r t.*>>> p trade in tbe City Hull Park! Why was not the line of march taken up directly after tbe arrival of the Piiuce at the Battery, and the it* viewing gone through with at Madiaon square? It is evident that there have been arrows miamnn Hgt-ment and utter stupidity somewhere. While we share in the general indignation ex cited by tb< blunders of some jacks in offloe, we canuot leave this subject without referring particularly to the demeanor of the fatigued and impatient people, who sat or stood four or five weary hours, looking anxiously for the "true Prinoe," and then were disappointed at last. The people endured their crosses in al ienee. There were curses, undoubtedly, bat they were deep, not loud. The muoh-lnjared and long suffering public seemed to understand Intuitively that the fair fame of the city wee entrusted to their keeping, and they resolved that it should not be tarnished by even a suspi cion of rudeness or disorder. We have oftsa heard the mopt extravagant laudations of the Parisian crowds, who are never kept wait ing. Only the militia offioer and the democratic servant oi the people are unpunctual ? the real military man and the despot are up to time, whether they give you a ftU or send you to the guillotine; but we believe that our people die played on Wednesday more of the essential ele ments of good breeding than any other crowd which was ever collected together anywhere la (he world. The patience of the publio was as angelic as the stupidity of its tormentors was colossal. Tax Disunion Question in South Carolina. ? We clip the following from the editorial oe lumns of the Charleston M^pry of Monday last, in reference to that day's eleotion for a new Legislature for the fiery little State of South Carolina: ? to day's klsction. We regard tbe p-teeut mad near future si very critical to tbe civilization and Institutions of tbe Sooth. If Lin coln be elected Id November, m seemfebighly probable, and none of the Mutes of tbe Sooth mots to reeist aaa withdraw from tbe domination of a hostile sectional SMk jor It;, our condition will be daageroua and humiliating hi tbe extreme Property of every description must fall, and insecurity aid alarm ex lend from Harper's Ferry to Ibe borders of Texas Nor can we per or lee any orert ask of aggression tfcat would be potent enough to arouse toe Sji.ib from a speed; decline, to establish her safety and Independence, at any rata, delay must require a oosa poond and usurious I (iter eat of blood. Therefore Is It Isa portsat to day for th- people or South Carolina to obsess such a body of men ss will see tint, so far as ther are empowered tbe flute receives no detriment from their incapacity or tloilditf This simply means that such a Legislature ie wanted as will strike the signal for diiunion oe tbe part of South Carolina, upon the heels of Lincoln's election, without waiting to be qui etly lubricated and swallowed by the abolitioa boa constrictor of the North. Of the oharaotsr of tbe Legislature in question actually elected, we have learned nothing; but we should not be surprised if it were to develope, even before the meeting of Congress, a state of things in South Carolina calculated to "precipitate the Southern States into a revolution." The crisis of submis sion or secession is near at hand, with its new order of things, for good or evil, for a restore* tion ot sectional concord or for civil strife. NEW8 FROM THE NATIONAL CAPITAL.
