Domingo has at length taken a visible shape A concerted plan for causing disaffection in the island, by the emi gration there of persons hired for th$ work, has been g?ing on for some time, and no little con sternation was created by the hoisting in St. Do mingo of the Spanish flag on the 16th inst. Spain Is ostensibly to create a protectorate over these emissaries, Tor which purpose three vessels-of-war, with troops, arms and munitions, have been sent to fit. Domingo. The result will be the forcible ac quisition of the island. O her vessels-of-war, with 10,(i00 troops, are to be seut from Cuba and from hpain.

The republican corruptiouiste at the State capital are once moie at wotk, at the dirty business of concoct ing schemes to plunder this city, under preUmt of amending its charter.

Diplomatic A.ppointmkvts? Mwtakkv Pouct OK THE AOMIIOSrRATIoM.? The last bveh of diplomatic appointments sent to the Senate in Very curious and suggesUre. Tbe President snd bis advisers have carefully pa-sed over all the prominent journalists hereabout*. and have given important places to Ug-r bier ora tors like Carl Scburz, and Washington report ers and correspondents, persons who have no part whatever in the real profession of jour oalism. The de-'gn of the administration seems to be to secure the rUuport ot tbe New York prei-s by provrdlng for its subaltern-., aad several of tlu?e so rewarded are Swiss merce naries in the service of tbe lobby. They use ?he honorable profession of journalism as a cloak for their ne'arious practices. Tbe administration makes a great blunder in these appointments. During tbe last q ?arcer of a century tbe New Y.?ik press has me*Jily advanced in intelligence, in en'er^rse and iu power. Now tbe press is king. Toe press makes and unmakes parties. Tbe press is tb flrst estate tn the realm, and from the leading metropolitan journals flow tbe ideas whereby the country is governed. A New York jour nalist of the first rank is quite a* power'ul w a cabinet Minister. Just at this m ?ment tb? combined New York press is more important ?ban the executive branch of the govern, nent The country la undergoing a revolution, peaceful as yet; but bloodshed is only pre vented by the free discussion of the questions of tbe day through tbe newspapers of the day. In tte South the people at Urge h*ve no voice in the government, and in the North there ?s a vast majority against tbe govern ment This majority oan only be heard through the press. The republican party Us?-lt is divided upon sundry important questions, and the journals r<inge themselves upon one side or the other, according to their interests or conviction?. The ?im? when a newspaper followed blindly in the path of party has, we are glad to say, gone by. And If Mr. Lincoln t* agtnes that by throwing a bone here and there to a reporter he can secure immunity from newspaper criticism, he is very much mis taken. It is very evident that the forsils at Washington have not progressed an inch in twenty years. That is not the jase with the press of New York If the border States are kept in the Union, if ? satlsfcc u.ry settlement with the Gulf Sties shall be made, If peace, plenty and prosperity shall be res'oied to the country, tbe result will be due entirely to the effort of the Combined press of New York and the large cities North and South. W .elding this power, and knowing its importance, is it likely that such men as Greeley, Bryant, Webb and Rty mond will seek important oIHoms? N it by any means. They have a right to expect that office will bo tendered to tbem. If journalism la to be officially recognized, if ?be ^etvices of edi'or. a>e to be appreciated in any way, tbe po?ts of honor sh mid be offeted to the commtnding officers, and th? can.p followers should be Baffled with the btoken victuals from tbe kitobem Tbe Presi dent and bis advisers, by pursuing an opposite course, will defeat 'he very object which tney nope to gain.

Not having answered atonoe the polite request of oar Wall street military oo temporary, to in form him what we would do at this crisis were we Id tbe position of President Lincoln, it is assumed by our Interrogator that we hare no amwer to make In this conclusion he was mistaken. Our answer is before him, and we shall probably bare his views upon it this morning We think it will puzzle him to prore oar peace propositions either insufficient or impra' tirable. We have great faith in them. We believe that if the Crittenden constitutional amendments were submitted to the sereral States by a two thirds rote of each ?f Congress, under tbe auspices of our republican administration, those amendments would be earried in three-fourths of the States. And tbey could be brought speedily to the judgment of tbe by * Co of regional provision sub mitting it/ em to a State Convention in each State, and naming an early day, and the same day in each State, for the election of the Con vention We beliere that in this way the border Blare States would be secured to the Union, and that ttey would soon bring back the seceded States. Meantime, as a preliminary peace measure, this Morrill tariff should be repealed; and Congress siiould be ca'led together as soon as the policv of fair play to all tbe States will allow, to do this work, and to try the compromise we have suggested. Tbe Union cannot be re stored by gunpowder; it canm t be restored by " masterly inactivity " on the p trt of tbe government at Washington. Something rnus be done in the way of a compromise to secure tbe bot der tlave States or tney will be gone Old Abe's ad ministration rmist act, or it will bo n be compelled to give up one-half the loaf io order to i-ave the otber half. Tnere lie? the whole case in a nutrbell. ^ Amkkican Yachting. ? For a number ot yean* there bas not heen experienced such a cpiriu-d feeling as has been manifested within tbe la*t month or two in regard to tbis delight ful pastime. Usually tbe month of M*y is Hilly upon us before the yachtsmen begin to think of biinging their boats out of wintei quarters. Tbis season, however, the idea in already entertained by a number of gentle men of availing themselves of the fresh bieezes wbicb prevail in early spriog, and starting out on a sort of preliminary cruise All, however, depends upon mild weather. Tbe esprit to wbich we allude is, in part, to be accounted for by the addition to the Club of several new boats ? models of beauty and speed? wbich have excited the mingled curi osity and expectations of tbe entire yachting fraternity. It is al*o due to that feeling ot emulation wbicb has sprung up on the occa sion of squadron cruises, and grown oat ef frequent visits to the United States of gentle men connected with tbe English clubs Yachting, too, is becoming more fashionable than formerly, and those who have the means of enjoying the luxary of a trim craft, with its concomitant enjoyments, find in the sport a re creative and healthy compensation for their outlay wbich is afforded by no other pleasure that can be selected Much rtmaintt to be done, however, before 'be pastime can be brought to the high stand ard at wbich it is main'ained in Great Britain, -uperior as are ot<r yachts in point of speed nid beauty, th?y ye' Ia~;k that durability which characterizes tbe British craft, and enable* their owners to travel, if necessary, from one end of the world to the otbsr, defying wind and waves. Their owners, too, are hearty, sturdy specimens of gentlemen, who haudl** their b' ats as well as tbelr captains, and "rough it" in all weatbers tnat may attend them on their voyages. In this country, on tbe contrary, thete is 1-ss of science and more indulgence in the m?-re enj >ym nt of yaohting. Tbey se*-k rather the pl-a?uieof a single day's sail in smooth water thin the excitements of a month or two at sea. We trust, this defect may be cured. Ther?* is ample room and opportunity for improve ment, and there is no reason why, with a fleet that is nnrtvalled in the world for its rnagnifl ceAt models, a stretch of seaboard with har bors unhurpassed, a Wmperate climate and moderate g?les, American yachtsmen shonlii not avail themselves of facilities to make them selves famous. Turn nut, gentleman; put on your coats of paint, polish your irons, store your lockers for a cruise, and give us an op portunity to chronicle yonr movements a month or two earlier than u?u>tl.
