The Growth and Prosperity of the Ameri can Republic. (Trom the l/>nrt>ti Times, Jan. 28.1 If the threatened di.-solutionof the United SUtes should be actually cousuminitUd, its citizens will enjoy a sing 1 lar opjoit unity of conienip'.ating, at the very crisis of their oestum-s, the magnitude and splendor or the point, cat fabric which they have just destroyed. The yoar of the secession was also the year of the census. At tho moment that the federal government was receiving tho onvoys 01 imupenoent Carolina it whs receiving also ilio returns ol the imputation and progress 1 roni tho several States of iho I For the eighth time onlv since the crtgin of tho coiiiedcincy, and yet lor the Usi'tiuie, per htt|>s, tn its history, the great republic lias taken stock of its people. It has numbered and claRsitled its c.tizens, counteo its gaiis ma put its growth upon rocord, and now it seems as u it were resolved on terniluatimi its existence. If it -oed so It will die in a blazu. Its progress has out ?tripped even the speculations of its own rulers Teu years ,.g;>, at the taking of the seventh census, some Americans s.il down to calculate the probable numbers of the population iu i860,,just as a thritly trader ou ba lancing ins accounts will indulge himself iu computing the prospective accumulations of such n surplus as ho ha.- just discovered. They made out that the United States would contain at the period which has now arm c 1 an nggiegato population of 31 095,665 The reckoning has actually boeu verillel, and with a little, to spare. The numbers arc 31,874,656. Notlmg liko eucn grow th has ever been witnessed in the old states of Europe. Tho increase during tho rte cade has beou upwards or8.0W),C00; the per centage thir ty-five. Out own country has made great strides, con sidering the numbers who emigrate but we can only feliow such a per c< niage of increase in very rare in stances, upon insignificant areas, and under special con ditions. Ot all th- counties or Kuglaud and Wales two ooly duiing the present century have grown at this rale and Uk*h< are the contiguous shires of Monmouth and Glamorgan. In the year 1801 they contained 115 000 11 o pie. They now coutain some 400,000, and Merthyr l v dvil can account probably for a good deal of tho result.' The gro*s incroaee, however, or the entire population was never like thirty -dve per cent in a decade: iu fact, it was never ha;r as much. At tho last cotsus it was between twelve and thirteen per cent tor the w hole of Croat flrl tain. In a few months' time wo shill again be able to suri ey our progioss, but it w ill certainly not approach the American ialo, however satisfactory it may prove. The Ftaiisucs of the provincial returns are Iu some cases perlecuy astounding. Not only -inglo citire. but whole 5tat< s have actually doubled their number?, and Chicago ha. all but quadrupled its popul it ion. In 1S50 it contained leas than 30,0C0 inhabitants: it udw contain. nearly 1)0 0U). 'I he Stale of New York has increased by about 800 OO0, I'ennsylrania by 000 000, .Massachusetts by 400,000, ami Illinois by little short of a million. In the Northwest the progress has been ext, ordinary. The three stales of Michigan, Wisconsin, aud Iowa hardly contained between them more inhabitants in 1SC0 than ' Wiseont in alone contains at the present time. Iow.i.tnpir J licular, had a population of 192,214 in 1850, whereas itn?w numbers its 67b.436 souls. The Americana carry into these reckonings a spirit or rivalry which is quite amusing 1 They pe li iheir population* a th. y do their cle:tois, an.i Us k tor tho returns or th? enumerators aR wu do for the declaration of the Mayor on the day after a tremendous contest between w hig and tory. The roccnt census h ip l-encd to place Cincinnati 2,110 below St I/juIs on the ^reat national poll, lis citizens protested against the return, d. nianded a scrutiny. and instituted a private c u?us ci thuir owu to test tbeofliriul tigun-s. Their procw-ditgs resulted in a decisive victory. They unco vered thai ibey had been underrated by 11,238 in ha hitants, and pulled down accordingly tho majority of St Lernis with a g<s>d 8,000 to spare. It will not surprise any one to learn that tho Southern States are let t in arrear by the Northern 111 th<*e st itl? tica; but the contrast is not quite *0 strong as it appear* to be at first Right. The Southwest mukes progrese, just as the Northwest does, and for the same reason tint the push of the whole population is westward. Still, l enn sylvanlu and New York have not tared like \ lrginia. \ lrginia began in 1700 by heading the whole list of the Htates in the numbers of its population, in 1KG0 it hid ?IrojuK d to the fourth place, and anotlier place had been lost by the return' Just made. North Carolina was originally fmirth in the list, and South Caro lina seventh; they were tenth and fourteenth re spectively in I860, and are uow, peih.11* lower stiil. On the other hand Georgia had ri-.-n from twel'tli to ninth, and Missouri from twenty s**c<.ad to Udrteenth. Ihere can be no doubt, however, ab >ut tho general superiority of vigor atts< hm? to the free State! vf Uie Union.

We aie glad to see that these views have at last found cxpretsion in the elaborate speech which Mr. Seward, the proximate Prime Minister of Hr. Lincoln, has ad l?l.he ***** on the state of the Union. These !h? . L should n*ve 5??? lal<1 ?>d elucidated iu bb this ft" fa""? President now tnoflloe; but, fall '7, ?* 18 at rate something to know that they will guide the councils of his succetuor. With this im port ant exception, however, we confess that we do not see much to admire in the speech of Mr. Seward It was meant, uo doubt, to be a great success, but fortune hag not entirely seconded tho efforts of the orator. The state or afla.ru tn America at the present moment is not favorable to merely rhetorical cxercitation. When a certain line or conduct has been firmly and deli berately adrpted. oratory is very useful to convince men . pi opri.ity, and uerauade them to follow it. But tho .tJ. ufederal K?Tercment !s, that while pr -vided to satiety with .sophists, rhetoricians, Irgijians, and lawyers, it has no men of action, no men who can cloaj ly see and boldly state the exact course which it is the duty of the United States to ta^co in the present emergency. The Southegn leaders are afflicted with no Huch scruples. Rebellion lay In their way, and they re be .led. Ihey do not trouble tUem.?elres with arguments about compacts anil delegations , they are determined to bieak up the I nion, and tor that purpose they employ tho whole energy of the States they represent, and their own ti. e , Congre?o? the countrv against w u;ch the) are ;n tla^rant rebellion. Mr. Suward is evident ly not a n:uu of ibis u<u<;!d Me can teU ua what will not t-are tlie In ion. It will not be saved bv recrimination 1 or by debates on the conititutional power of Congress on tbe bubjcct or t.avery in the Territories, nor by prov ing secession to be illegal or unconstitutional, nor bv diHcussiug the right ef the federal government to coerce seceding States ; utr is the Union to bo saved by Oon ^national compromises, cor by any person in particu lar, nor by some cunning and insincere compact of conciliation. Ibis Li a long list or negatives, and in the remaining part ol Mr. Seward's speech, extending over two columns of the Tmn. wo seek in vtun for the awwer to the question, "What will save tho I nion 1 \\ e have abundance of praise of tlie form or government over which destruction is im pending. We are reminded, in rather inflate! language, ol tbe benefits which the I'niou has conferred cn tho nation at home, and of the sttength which it has given to it abn ad. We have a picture of an American luau of war eulei ing a Luropeon port with all tho honors, aim of what the reception of an American man of-war ia likely to be under a divided confederacy. We have a contrast drawn between Young and Old America in tho persona of the page and the clerk or tho Senate, tho re rmer of whom seems to be carried nwaj bv therhetoric while the elder ia shucked by the treason or the Southern orators,,just ns the jounger Jews rejoiced, whil" the eider, who remembered the glories of the edifice or Solo men, wept at the dedication of the second Temple. AjI this we have waded through iu hopes of lindiae what it is tint Mr. Seward we>uld recommend as tho tneans of saving the Union. It sct-ina to como to thl- ?. The idea or the withdrawal of the t.ulf States and their permanent reorganization, with or without others, in a distinct coal oileracy, is ?> impossible,? and is therefore dismiisod by Mr. Seward. We only wish, and there aro many who will join with us, that Mr. Seward had as large a jurisdiction over the actual as over the ideal. IVhUr he ts dnmitsinr, the vka qf the Southern confederacy the South em confederacy is actually fur>,icd, and will doublet* find , mme meant of creatine, that " idea, notion, or conception" 22?"

Mr. Seward is in favor of doing all these thitgs which he has already assured I db will cot sa\e the Union, lie is ready to repeal tho 1 orsonal Ijbcrtv acts, which trei ch on the police of the Fugitive Slave law. He is willing to vede for the amend meet ef the ce ustittitien, declaring that honcoforth it enail not ho lawful to abolish slaverr by an act of Uon gress?an ame ndment utterly futile,'since it can always Dfl reacludcd by the same power that enact(U it.

Thia Is all that the efiicial adviser eif the incoming President can ?-u?gkht as a remedy for dangers so urgent and so threat ening. Tbe thtnH'which has happened is "impossible " and in two or three years we may have a convention.

It will thus be seen Uiat the bonds are to be Hxc?, running twenty years; that the bids must be sent in 1 ?y Saturday, 23d, and the deposits on ac count of New York bids made with the Sub-Troa surcr ct this point before four P. M. on Friday, 22d. It seems to be snpposcd that the loan will not command a higher price than 90, unless events should change the complexion of affairs between th<s and the 22d. Had Mr. Sherman's project for obtaining the endorsement of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Now \ojk and Massachusetts been adopted, the bonds could pru'ably have been sold at par. Wr. '?arnett's objection thus bids fair to cost the couu try $800,COd; and is the eight millions now called for are wanted, not to carry out the purpose of the Incoming administration, hut to pay the over due claims of poor sailors, soldiers and others, who ore starting for want of their dues, it is diffi cult to detect any compensating merit in the ob jection. 1 he law under which Mr. Dix acts reads as follows;?

The panic ho long expected se^ms no nearer; it looks aa though Eng land, which, after all, as the parent country of Australia, is quite aa large a producer of gold aa the United States, watt as well able to spare us $20,000,000 in sovereigns aa we are to spare her $40,000,000 or $*'>0,000,000 a year in eagleg ant ban.
