The numerous maps, plans and diagrams of the operations of the Union and rebel troops in Virginia, Missouri, Illinois, Florida, and on the Mississippi and Missouri rivers, which have been published from time to time in the NettYork liwur.d, aro now printed on one sheet, and is ready for delivery. Agents desiriug copies are requested to send in their orders immediately. Single copies six cents. Wholesale pri#e the same as for the Weekly IIeiuld. TIIE SITUATION. From St. Louis papers ?ro givo aome details of another brilliant victory foi our troops?this time a land force. It will be seen that some four huudred and thirty Union troops repulsed as many thousands of Confederates at Lexington, Missouri? leaving sixty (lead on the spot, besides a number of wounded. Of late tlic news from the seat of war ha? been rather encouraging to the government and the country. First, there was the iuiportaut naval victory at the entrance to tho Inlet of llatteras. According to our telegraphic intelligonco to-day it is likely enough there may be soon another naval victory at the entrance to Beaufort. Hut already there Is a land triumph in Missouri, reflecting almost equal credit npon the federal arms as the victory at Hatteras. There in a third victory over the enemy, but it was not accomplished by our troops. It was done by the hand of Providence. It is the wreck of the pri- 1 vateer Jeff. Davis at the mouth of the harbor of St. Augustine, in Florida, by which a mischievous piratical craft that prayed so ferociously on our commerce is not only for ever disposed of, but the harbor is more effectually closed than if throe of our ehips-of-war were stationed at it, or if it had been blocked up by old hulks tilled with stones, a* has been done on the coast of North Carolina. The entrance to the harbor of St Augustine? ooe ?f the most important ports in the Btate?is so narrow at the bar where the , Jeff. Davis was grounded, that when the sand ae. cumulates over and around the wreck it will be 1 impossible for trading vessels to enter. But not only have we had the newo of the wreck of the Jeff'. Davis, but of the end of him ( after whom the pirate craft was called. Some f doubt has been thrown on the truth of 1 the intelligence which we published yesterday; but there is confirmation of the report in our ? Washington despatch *f this morning, and it is \ added that his death took place, not on Saturday, but on Monday morning, and that the bllicers at Manassas arc wearing crape on their arm*. This would also account for the rebel flag being at half- f laast in the vicinity of Washington. It may be eaid that if Jefferson Davis were dead there would be more noise about it. There may be, however, * very good reason for concealing the d< atli j , as long as possible nt the present critical position of Kentucky, when there is a deep design ' to spirit that State out of the Union as Virginia was spirited out; and news of the death of Jefferson Davis would Badly embarrass the plans of the secessionists. Prom nil appearances the news is probable, and if it should be Anally confirmed it will be a heavy blow to the Confederate cause. Wo have the important intelligence that hostilities have aetually begun in Kentucky, and that shots have been exchanged between the federal gunboats on the Mississippi and the rebel gunboat Yankee, as well as with rebel batteries on the Kentucky shore at Hickman, aud also with i mall arms at Columbus and Clmlk Hinfr rnrtn. juately none of the federal troops were injured. ' It is stated iu our news from Missouri that Hen. ' McCulloch's array is demoralized, and that be is , retreating with five thousand men to Arkansas, < while Hardee wan moving in the same direction I with six thousand men. Yet we are told the < enemy arc fortifying a position at Sykestou, and ihat General Price and other Confederate Generals were marching with twelve thousand men towaads ' Jefferson City, and fifteen thousand rebels under Pillow are reported at New Madrid. Arrangements ' had been made between General Pillow and Colo- ( tsel Wallace for an exchange of prisoner*. Tho army of General Prentiss had reached , Jackson, some ten miles west of Cape Girardeau, and he had met with no enemy. The report that lie took ISO prisoners is, therefore, untrue. From Western Virginia intelligence has been received from General Hosencrans that he is safe, ' ttixl in lit) danger of capture. I In the vicinity of Washington the rebels ktill ' liold their positions, but according to the accounts ve receWe of the condition of their army?fifty per cent being sick?they will be able to eflcct but i Lulu eitlict iu MUck or dvfenye, NE T1112 NEWS. The New York Democratic Btate Convention, for tho nomination of candidates for State officest assembled at Syracuse yesterday, at noon, anti proceeded to business by appointing Hon. Francis Kiornun, of Oneida, temporary cliuirman. Mr. Kieninn roturned his thanks in a speech which, it is believed, embodied the sentiments of the platform that will ultimately be adopted by the Convention. Tho Committee on Permanent Organization reported the name of Ileman J. Uedileld for President, with the usual ulWwauoo of vice presidents and secretaries, and the selection was duly ratified. Tho Committee oil Contested Peats made a report with reference to the rival Tainmany aud Mozurt delegations, and after some discussion the Convention decided to admit bolh sets of delegates. The vote stood 110 to VS. The Tammany delegates did not relish this mode of settling the question, and withdrew to deliberate. Meantime the Convention appointed a Committee on ltesolulions, composed entirely of anti-Mozart men, and subsequently a>ljourned till this morning. A (till report of the proceedings of tho Convention, together with an account of the doings of the politicians outside of the Convention, may be found elsewhere in oar columns. The schooner H. Middleton?a prize to the United States?arrived at this port yesterday, in cluirpe of a prize crew commanded l>y Midshipman Kernpf, having beon captured on the 2lst of August, oil Charleston, by the Bloop-of-war Vandalia. was from Charleston, bound to Liverpool, with a cargo of naval stores, and had attempted to run the blockade. During the chase she had thrown overboard the entire deck load. The captain and crew of the prize were transferred to the frigate Roanoke. The United States gunboat Wyandot, Commander Baldwin, from Fort Pickens '.id and Key West 23th ult., arrived at this port yesterday. She reports the health of the troops at Fort Pickens as good, and that 11 l.irge number of the rebel troops at Pctisaoola had deserted and gone to their homes. The rebel prisoners that arrived here in the legate Minnesota from Fort Ilatteras were yesterday conveyed to Governor's and Hedloe's islands. The New Orleans Picayune states that the rebels have released ou parole the Union prisoners taken at Fort Fillmore and elsewhere in Texas. In our columns this morning wili be found an interesting jetter from Gun'ralLnna.of the Spanish army, on the condition of the Union anny of the Potomac ten days after the battle of Full rim. This gentleman is the Spanish General alluded to by Mr. Russell in his letter of August 5, which apo^ared in yesterday's Ukualp, and the General's let or certainly confirms the opinions attributed to hia by our cotemporary of the London Time*. B't it is not to ba wondered at that regiments Wwcl had been in camp three months, many of thoin at hard work, exposed to all kinds of weather and cheated l>y all kinds of contractors, should bo a little, or even very, dirty looking. Ten days after the Bull run disaster the camps around Washington were not in the very best order, and it was a bad time for a stranger to gather impressions of our army from what he must have seen at that time, before (ieneral McClellau undertook the task of restoring order and organization. Let (ieneral I,ana pay our army of the Potomac a visit now, and he will find things very diflerent; and in another letter he might reverse all he 1ms said, even to the taking bark his predictions in regard to the "certain" success of the Southerner*. The Madrid journals of August 10 state that the explanations given by Senor Toro, F.nvoy from the republic of Venezuela, lead to the hope of a speedy re-establishment of the relations between Hpain and that State. It was thought likely that Senor Toro would be officially received by the Queen at Santander as Minister Plenipotentiary for Venezuela. Our advices from Kingston, Jamaica, are tic 21st ult., but the news is unimportant. Southern accounts of the Bull run battle had been received and were apparently credited. The question of procuring from this country liberated slaves as emigrants was beginning to bo agitated. The census returns showed, unexpectedly, a large increase of population since 1*14, notwithstanding the terrible ravages of cholera and umal'pox in the interim. The dioccsa of Jamaica is to be divided by detaching the Bahamas therefrom. A regular meeting of the Hoard of Education was held last evening, but no business of public importance was brought before the Commission- 1 ers, all the business transacted being of a routine natiiPA nrKinli tittu -??-I n.?.w ?? i'?8 WC BUUllUt'I | reccM. | The Commissioners of Emigration held their . cgular weekly meeting yesterday, when the sum jf $'2,500 was appropriated to the Quarantine Cora- , niasinners for the support of the dick.

Tho newspapers pro filled with praises of the Bpoech delivered at Irving Hull by Mr. llolt, formerly Postmaster General ami Secretary of War under Mr. Buchanan. The spccch is no doubta very good one in its way, and in its proper time and place would merit all that is said of it. It seems, however, like a was?? of the flowers of oratory for the speaker to delt\ er there brilliant and patriotic effusions in New York, Boston and other Northern cities, where people ate all of the same way of thinking, und where there is absolutely nobody to convince. It is time that Mr. llolt, und others like him, should understand that the era of stump speeches has passed away, and that we are entering upon one in which genius and action will alone suit (he exigencies of the times. Stump speaking has debauched and ruined the country, and those who, on the strength of this single qualification, have contrived to push themselves into places of power and influence, are being rapidly thrust aside to make way for m>'U of capacity and energy. General McClollan understands the drama and the ugc, and nukes no stump speeches. When, returning from his victories in Virginia to a*-ume the commaiid of the army oi tut* loioiimc, ne was ciuiiMi ujiou in Fliihulclphia to address tho crow d that assembled to offer hiui an ovation, ho declined, with the emphatic remark that this was not a time for speaking, but for action. Nor d?>o* General Fremont make stump speeches. Friends," said he at Cairo, when called out by the crowd, " 1 have too much work before rae to thiuk of spending it hi idle talk. Wait until tho war is over, and I will give you as many speeches :is you will care to listen to." And bo with General Wool and General Hanks. The former uses no more words than are necessary to make hit* orders understood ; and the latter, though one of tho finest stump speakers iu the country, finds that he has something more important to do than to gratify his tastes or the tastes of others in this respect. Inter anna silent Urnjuie is now the motto and rule of conduct of our representative men. The talkers will constvijuently have to yield the st:i(?e to the worker.^ and retire to the background until the shifting scenes of the drama admit of another interval o' suspended action, when the monologue and chorus may again resume their places. Mr. llolt surely does not wish to occupy the portion of the uuluoky comedian who got shut out before the ilrop cur tain, thus affording the audienoe a surplusage of mirth. We are sick to nausea of spcecheH here in New York, and certainly do not desire a larger supply just now. 1.(4 him go to Kentucky, whose fortunes tire balancing in the wind, and where his accomplishments ns a stump speaker may be of some use. If there, as here, the time be gone | by for talking, he can at least shoulder a musket and do good service in (be lleld in defence of the Union and of his native State against the encroaclunentH of the Southern traitors. There are among the men of action, too, some who need a word of advice. Our successes since the commencement of the war have not been either so important or so numerous as to afford much room for self-congratulation. We arc afruid that our people are getting into the bad habit of making much of small victories. The effect of this is to give our ofticers ami soldiers a false' estimate of the merit of their own deeds, if j we make heroes out of men who have performed but very ordinary acts of duty, wheiv will be the rewards of those who accomplish extraordinary result*? It is not thus that great armies are formed. The highest honor thai the ambition of the English or French soldier craves in a few words of favorable recognition i in the report of his chief. None but the con- ! qnerorv of provinces and kingdoms receive public ovations. It is not ho with us. No ^?oner does the commander of ft small expedL Lion aceompliah the duty that he ia sent upon Limit ho hurries buck to receive the honors that lie knows await him in the large cities. This is Ml wrong. Great services are entitled to great rewards, and wo do injustice to the deserving by lavishing indiscriminately upon all the tributes which are due only to extraordinary merit, its effect upon the morale >f our officers, too, is moat injurious. Instead if stimulating them to greater efforts it relaxes ;beir energies. The leader who gains a unall advantage over the enemy, instead o' studying how to prosecute it to greater results, inly busies himself to find a pretext to get 1 ionic to enjoy the felicitations of hi* friends and ! leighbors. This must be stopped, and the best j ivay to stop it is for the government to appoint ! ;o important commands officers that it can :ely upon, and then to entrust them with i larger discretionary powers.

The ;oast survey, in its maps and charts and soundings, has furnished all the needful information concerning the inlets, channels, harbors, ! Ve., of our whole Atlantic coast; so that the j government, before moving to this point, tlu?t i [>oint or the other, has all tin- means of knowing the depth of water to be prov ided fur, and the shoals and sandbars to he avoided. What, t strikes us, is immediately needed now, in :onncction with our occupation of ihittcrus Inlet, is a half dozen, or more or less, light lraught steam gunboats, to cruise about in those extensive inland waters?Albemarle and l'amico Sounds. In this way we may give c-mploynent lo fifty thousand rebels on the shores of :hoso sounds; while, in the absence of any .tuimh's lucrein, uje renew may quietly collect m overwhelming force, and precipitate it npon ITuttoros Inlet, anil recapture it. We must .irge, therefore, the importance, not only of fol" i iowing up this I latter as victory with other i nterprises of the same character, hut of im- J uediately securing against all accidents the in valuable lodgment gained. exfumcmknt ok Fkdkku.

A day or two ago we were shown a petition to tlio New York Typographical Society, signed by Greeley & Co. for the Tribune, and liuyniond & Co. for the Times associate us, and asking that the rates of wnges of journeymen j printers be reduced, in consequence of the present war. This petition was presented to us for our signature, and, us may readily be supposed, we refused to have anything to do with the matter, aud steadfastly oppose that reduction of wages which these twin secession abolition journals advocate. We conduct our business upon the principle of paying every man just what his labor is worth, and we do not believe that w e are paying our journeymen printers uny more than J they fairly earn. The price for composition is now thirty-five cents per thousand, and, when

I ill.. li.lw* of ll... - ?-??i.i 1 *1?4 sum doe? not appear any too groat lor the work. Indeed, bo generally is this acknowledged, that the price has varied but very little for fifteen years. A compositor must possess great manual dexterity, and Homo intelligence, education and quickness, llo works while others sleep, and turns night into day for his labor's sake. By the rate of wages now fixed he is enabled, if a good workman, to make a decent livelihood, and his daily earnings increase only in proportion to his increased proficiency iu his business. To attempt to reduce his wages now> or at any time, by a potitiou to the Typogruphi cal Society, is an interference with the rights of labor to which neither we nor the printer himself will submit. By this appeal to the Typographical Society the 1 imea and Tribune managers attempt to cut down the wages, not only of their own employes, but TIT nil the printers in the city. This is showing the white feather in their business with a vengeance. The war furnishes them not the slightest excuse for this movement, for they, more than any other journals in the country, have contributed to bring this war about, and, by their "Onward lo Richmond" articles, have added many months to its duration. Last winter we urged them to support a compromise which would have settled the matter peaceably I and forever, but they truculently refused, and succeeded at length in plunging this country into civil war. Finding the war, with its accompaniments of bloodslu d, ruin and commercial demoralization, inevitable, we urged the Times and Tribune to heartily support the administration, and bo make tbe war as short as possible, instead of this they embarrassed the government in every possible way; advocated anarchy and George Law for Dictator; frantically urged our half-disciplined and ill-provided army into an enemy's country; pushed our brave soldiers within a fatal cuL-dt-anc of masked batteries, and finally brought upon us tho disastrous rout of Pull run? thus giving tbe rebels the substantial aid and comfort of an apparent victory, and adding millions to the cost and month* to tho duration of the war. Now that, in return for these fauatical outrages, they brgin t > feel the pressure of tbe times ar.d have justly lost the confidence of the administration and the support < f the public, it is as contemptible of them to attempt to retrieve th< ir pecunia y losses from tbe pockets of tho journeymen printers as it was for them to attempt to place the blame of their fanatical conduct upon tho President and the veteran General fcfeott. The printers ought to call a public meeting immediately, to express their sentiments upon th?s rattii\g interference with their rights and tlicir wages. If tbe Time* and Tribune desiie to retrench in the expenses of their type-setting, let the two journals coalesce and form a combination organ of accession, abolition and anarchy. Ily such a course they may be able to secure a small daily circulation, for the people would buy tbe mongrel sheet at half its present price, as a journalistic curiosity or ''What Is It"' just as they go to see llarnum's "connecting link between the negro and the brute creation." This quotation, too, would answer admirably as a motto for tbe combination journal, and bean ! apt definition of its object and its character. Greeley, Raymond and Co. seriously consider this plan, and, in any event, leave the Typographical Society and the printers'wages alone. The IUnkk and thk Tkbasiky Notkh.?We are gratified to find that. In accordance with a suggestion of the Herald, the associated hanks of this city are now receiving subscriptions to the seven and three-tenths per cent Treasury notes. For the past few days the subscriptions Lave simply been received and transmitted hy j the hanks to the Sub-Treasury; but we under- i stand that an arrangement bas been, or is about being made, under which the banks are to act independently In the matter, instead of being merely the intermediary of the Sub-Treasury. In other words,the banks will themselves issue certificates of subscription, and when the Treasury notes ate ready for delivery will deliver them to the subscribers. This, besides being the natural courec of business, was rendered necessary by the tremendous and daily increasing pressure on the Sub-Treasury for subscriptions to the loan, those of yesterday amounting to $*00,000, It can hardly be said llral any effort lias been made, up to thit* lime, to induce snrnl 1 capitalits to invest their money in these Treasury notes. The necessity of going lo the SubTreasury, carrying the amount tit tiicir subscriptions in gold, going through the form of tilling up printed applications and mailing litem to the Secretary of the Treasury, with the certainty of having to wait week* before receiving an answer, acted ?. % a drawback upon those who would otherwise be prompt in coining to the pecuniary aid of the government. Hut now that the banks have stepped in and simplified the process, and that men can hand over uhccks to the amount of their subscriptions, leaving the notes on deposit in the banks, wemay naturally expect to see the popular subscriptions to the loan flow in lo an extent that will prove to the government thut its deepest and tirmcst roots aro in llio patriotism and liberality of the people.

It wui Je' Hvered at a corporation banquet in thaV )' It will be recollected by tmr readers that \tocbuck, though a profejped radical uud Chartist, is remarkable for always voting witk the tory side of the House, and against the whigs, among whom are to be found the liberal portion of Parliament. Roebuck its therefore a false liberal, and bin policy has ever been to embarrass aud defeat every generous measure offered in Pari la. j ment by the whigs. Faithful toliis vocation, he now seeks to overthrow the alliance of the I French Emperor with the English goveruuii*nt> and to excite a war spirit in the popular mind against Franco, by representing Napoleon as menacing the very existence of England. It is true that be pretends to desire an intimate alliance between the people of Frauce and the people of England, while he aims a deadly blow at the monarch of France. lint this is too flimsy a veil j to cover his truo des'gn, which is to sub3erve tbe wishes ami purposes of the Cobnrg Camarilla iu England, tho German iutlueuce behind the throne, supposed to be more potent than the throne itself. During the Crimean war the most strenuous efforts were made by this faction, the tool of the German Powers, to break up the cntctJe cordiale between France and England, and to isolate Franco ami form another coalition against Napoleon Hi. like that which dethroned the elder Napoleon; and it so far succeeded then as to prevent the immediate realization ef the independence of Italy, though not the ultimate success of the cause. The old attempt is now revived, and Roebuck fairly exhibits the cloven foot by lauding despotic Austria and denounclng'liborty-loving lluhgury and democratic America in the same breath. "The unspeakable audacity," he Bays, '"the overbearing insolence of Americans, had withdrawn from them all sympathy on the part of the people of England." Whether any nation has ever yot equalled the English in overbearing insolence we leave all disinterested persons to judRC. It is evident that the cherished design of the British tory aristocracy is to destroy tho principles of liberty in Europe and iu America at ono fell stroke. Hence they rejoice at the Americau rebellion, and the separation of North and South, which they pronouuee eternal ; and they are plotting to take advantage of tho cloutl which overshadows democracy ou this side of the Atlantic in order to get rid of every vestige of liberal ideas in Europe. They may, however, rest assured, of one thing, and that is that they will be disappointed iu their hopes that the American republic will prove a failure. And, furthermore' they may as well give up at once the fallacious notion that there is any antagonism between the French people and the Emperor of France?the most popular monarch who ever wielded the s.Tentre sinp.o fhc (lava nf r!1iar!<>m:nrno?ntiil who is popular precisely because bis ideas are in unison with the wishes of the people over whom he rules. The votaries of despotism are building castles in the air, which have no moro foundation thun the baseless fabric of a vision. They hate and they fear Napoleon because, though nominally an Emperor, he is the lav reditary friend of well regulated liberty in Europe, and a terror to all crowned heads who seek to oppress weak nationalities or to swallow up their independence. Lotal Kkntttckt?Thk Skckssion Cut ok Taxation.?The eecff-sl in ct nsp'ralors of Kentucky, as a last expedient, ha\e leaorled to the cry of '-Taxation! taxation! Look at Lincoln's income tax of eight hundred thousand dollars, which you will be called upon to pay by re* maining under his government'/' But there are two sides to the medal. What is the figure on i the other side? What will Kentucky have to pay in the way of direct taxes for the first year nr lrwjl iKitn u vi??p nF tho ,.f 41.n .1? potism of Jeff. Davis? Three millions. And what in the way of forced contributions, seiz. urea and confiscations for the rebel armies, if 1 once invited within her borders? Perhaps a hundred millions. And what from losses in the shape of fugitive, contraband and confiscated negroes on the aide of the Union armies? Perhaps another hundred millions. Such is the other side of the picture. The people of Kentucky have before them the disastrous consequences to Virginia for her folly iu becoming the mere beast of burthen of South Carolina and the other cotton States. Tliey are exempt, for the present, while she is wasted by fire and sword. Kentucky will avoid her fatal example. To see the consequences of secession in Virginia is quite enough for Kentucky, setting all such things as patriotism and honor aside. Tiik Ai.iu.nv Hkuknct at SrRAcraE.?Dean Richmond, Peter Cagger and the other desperate intriguers of the Albany Regency, will find it harder work to keep alive their miserable rump of the democratic party than was their treacherous enterprise of breaking up their party at Charleston und Baltimore. The pe;\co programme of Cagger & Co. was chalked out too soon after the disastrous battle of ManassasSince they concluded, like the h'nglish cockney Russell, that the Union cause was lost, that cause has wonderfully recuperated und looks exceedingly blight. And so, if the trieky Regency do not fall back upon , the prudent patriotism of Tammany Hall, we shall have the pleasure 01 reooruing me last kick 01 lav kogency. Who Can Explain??While a pretty sharp eye is kept by the government upon secession newspapers in the North, it appoars'that no measures of ' co?rci?n " have been resorted to against the rabid secession organs of Baltimore, where, of all places, one woo hi suppose the necessities of the government and its very safety demand* ed the suppression of all treasonable publications. llow are we to account for this remarka" ble leniency to those organs of treason in Lk?l timore?
