Shoddy, therefore, will be apt to p ay tbe cheat wtli Lincoln, and fall in at Bilt?u? >re with the popular current In favor of t. "neral Graut. Unquestionably, the notnlnatio. 'r General Grant at Baltimore would eeille the Presidential question at once. It would aatist'y and harmonize the people of all tbe loyal States, and would relieve us of all fears and all dangers of a turbulent and d isorder y poli tical campaign. On the contrary, as the nomi nation of Abraham Itaicoln-will let loose the apirita of discoid, violence and confusion, and as it will give no assuianco of bio election even at the point of tne bayonet, we shall not be surprised if Old Abo, at Baltimore, is voted on the retired list with Fillmore, poor Pierce and poor old Buchanan, which will be just the thing, exactly General Grant in unquestionably master of the political well km the military situation. 11m hands are not tied, lie ie not the sil'v slave of any pnrty or any clique of politician!*. If nominated at Baltimore he will, we dare sav, accept, or if pass-d over at Baltimore, and nominated honestly and on a broad and liberal platform at Chicago, he will consent to run. We do not believe a word of the silly story that those political ?bus>ybodies of the BUir family have "made it all right'' between Old Abe and General Grant. If the Baltimore Convention would 1iot wisely it will make sure of tbe succession by nominating General Grant. Otherwise, even with this great favorite of the people out of the canvass, the conservative opposition elements will find some other popu* lar soldier and able and practical man upon whom, combining tbeir forces, and ai led by the independent radical St. John the Baptist Fremont movement, tyey will prove that Abra ham Lincoln and bis shoddy men are not the choice of the people. The Rights of Our JMerehiinta? What | They Should Da. Our merchants, kind, quiet, docile and sub missive for years uuder a system more arbi trary than was ever adopted by any other gov ernment jn tbe world, appear to have discov ered at last that they, in common with the rest of mankind, have rights. In their quiet sub mission to any and all the wrongs which have been inflicted on them, they seem to have for gotten ' that in them lie the real strength and power of the natio i. Thoy seem to have for gotten that to them belongs the credit of sus taining our government in it? dangers and perils, and that to them, in fostering and ex tending our commerce, we owe our past and pre sent greatness and prosperity. In past years the policy of our government was to foster, aid and protect*the band that fed it: but now tbe contrary course seems to be the most popular, at least hero, and, if wo may judge by tbe re sults of the present policy, which lias &u seri ously crippled tho the corumerct of New York we are driven to the conclusion that our great ness as> a commercial city has culminated, and that we are now in our decline. Hitherto our merchants hare had equal ad vantages and privileges with those of other port?: but now it would appear that Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and many other places are permitted to advance their intercuts at our expense, by the possession and enjoymont. of privileges which are denied to us. We reter to tho "bonding system" enforced at this port by order of tbe Treasury Department, as prescribed by . it of Congress, May 20. 18<?2. TV,.- have repeatedly called the attention of tbe government to the folly of attempting to blockade the rebel ports at the New York Cus tom lloHse, and bave endeavored to show the fallacy of the belief that our nn-rchaats were supplying tbe rebel government with goods to any amount by means of our trade with Nas sau, Bermuda or other ports, except Matamo ros. With the lust named port there can be no mistake, as we bave hitherto shown; for tbe landing of goods at tbe mouth of the< Rio Grande, oeleus ibly for Matamoros, was simply placing them, we might say, within rebel con trol; bnt in onr trade with tbe West Indies the facilities for carrying on u traffic between them and the rebel ports is limited: and, while trtir tra^.e with Mexieo has increased one thou sand per cent, onr trade with the We?t Indies has only increased about one hundred per cent. It cannot 1?c denied that goods shipped here have occasionally peiohld the bloc.ka<ied porl3 by way of the West Indies, but la suoh limited quantities, in comparison with the amount carried in there by the numerous and regularly established Hues of steamers between Liverpool and Wilmington, via Bermuda and Nas?au. that the f.?ot is scarcely worth the mention. If is undoubtedly the duty of govern ment to use all tbe power it possesses to put n stop to this contraband trade; but due caution should be uted in the excrete* of thfc power to ; see that the rules and restrictions by which It : is sonjht to 1 e accomplished should apply to ' all alike. I If the Caatom , llo??e bonding *ystem is t<J be continued, and is believed by the author'. I ties to be t lie only way by Vnvh iLe rebel , ports can be blookad^, tf-, e , j , y [Tori nafreuauts bare an ?q:ial cliaticr with i there of other ports. Tbey have a right to and should insist that the "governmental *?nl*?'' of juat'c* should be evenly balanced. Bnt to the uninrtiatcd this "telescopic or stand ffaad see ' system cf blockading bpp? ?rti rather inef. fectire. But if It J a? beca discovered tb-U we car. do it better nt a distance, no ? ne h?a a right to complain, and certainly no ?r,e will d?uy that it in much better, at leant for the vic tim. to l.ang the would-be murderer L' fore he eommUf. the crime :h?u to wait till the deed ie done and he ba> l,.?d a cbftr.ce to es.ape by trial in a covrt cf law. A contrary vie# ia taken by irany. wbo ieain that the only way to blockade & port 1? to -end a r.llioien* num ber ef v?*aeW there to prevent ingreMi aad ejma; but then it ia it ict better it we can stop the vesfeis at eir wharves. andputiah th* owiart of the {: ..odr or. s>.sp'c'/?>a that tbey in tend to commit a crime. Now let ns carcfnllj tevitw tuia ayttem aa prae,f?ed at 'hit pert A ve?gel ie leading for a eoapcci*d fort, and an ellliccr la not unfte q tently defil ed, a ? the revest of the merchant, to eee thai not! iig contraband go*a on board. The thipper. clearing h!a veaael at the Cmtfim Bouse. rr .it give a b nfl, with real estair i un ties, in do ib.'ei tho Vtlue of A* good* that they shall not ri'di;h a rebel port, and hi* tiond raonot, by Itt term. , be cancelled until evidence it pi >.Juc?d Uut ' lie proftlloiis he ships have found tlu :r way to ' neutral'' stomachs, and ti.e clothing has boan Worn out ^ on ueutial teriitotf, and nerrt ilvca w mth to lebel backs. Few m?rflMnU are .rilliug to give a bond 60 indefinite as to dura t on uiid spec "fication; yet it must be done, or their eoods mn^t remain in their stores, and l be customers Wt h whom tbey have dealt, in many cases during * period of forty years, mu8t seek their Biip^U t el^ewttew. Who suffers by tbU system! All. The government, by plaoing such restrictions on trade that forui?ri goods 8eek otbtu- markets, und hence we lose the revenue durived from increased imports. Tbe shipper, because he must, in addition to his regular commission, charge his customer ten per cent, in Home cases, tor a surety to his bond, making fifteen per cent in all, which makes his prices equal or giv-vtor than what would be charged tor the situ. - goods In Liverpool. The merchant, be oausi shipper dsre no^fill the orders of his ouatonu ?< v?u account of our refusal to permit [lis goods to leave our port except under ro strctions which are nowhere Hse imposed. Now, admitting the fact that there are among our merchants those who would wilfully vio late our laws by giving aid and comfort to tl. a enemy, it is believed that the number is small, and therefore it is manifestly unjust that all our loyal merchants ? the teal bone and sinew of our commercial system ? should suffer sim ply because wo have discovered a thief or a rascal among them, it is wrong and unjust to them to continue and enforce a regulation so^ arbitrary in its application, and one which, after a trial of two years, has been found so utterly inadequate to compass the object intended by its originators. We labor here for weeks to stop, overhau1 and examino a little cargo bound to some small town in the West Iudies, on sus- , picion that a small portion mij?ht, peradven ture, reach Rebcldom, and during that week a dozen steamers from Liverpool, Havana or St. Thorn an may have reached and landed at Wil mington more goods than we have shipped tQ those suspected ports in a whole year. With these facts beforo them, our merchants should lose no time In preparing a plain state ment of the case to present to the Secretary of the Treasury, earnestly protesting against the continuance id force of a regulation so mani festly unjust and arbitrary in its operation. Let them petition Congress to amend or modify the law, and, if necessary, let them come for ward nnd in their own practical, common sense way ask that they be empowered to establish a blockade of the rebel ports. They have ever cheerfully responded to the calls of government, and if they may be per mitted to devise means to blockade tbe South ern ports we may rest assured that they will inaugurate and establish a system as effective and as perfect as that which governs their own commercial transactions. 'I he Mass Meeting at Vnlom fqn?re ThH Afternoon. * The great meeting at Unioa square this afternoon to express the nation's gratitude to Grant ought to be immense in numbers, and wilL certainly be most enthusiastic in senti ment. of our citizens who have any love for their country and it3 Institutions, any re^urd for its glory and its unity, should allow trHling engagements to detain them from this great gathering. We hope that General Grant will add to the interest of the occasion by giving us the tidings of another great victory during the dav. just as be ce?cbrated last Fourth of July by the capture of Vicksburg. It is by no means certain that this meeting will not nominate our next President. Tbe Baltimore Convention is said to be bought up for Lincoln; but the old adage fn regard to the slip 'twivt the cap nnd the lip is often true of nominating conventions, hi 1844 every thing was arranged for the nomination of Van 15 n r en at the Democratic Convention at Balti more: but Van It.iren was laid upon the shelf, and'Polk was nrininatod on the Texas ques tion, and triumphantly elected. In 1848 the nomination of C^ay was decided upon before the Philadelphia Convention met, and all the delegations wor* instructed to go for him; but the kept Taylor steadily before the people, and tbe result was that Hall, Webb and other New York politicians went over to Taylor just iu time to turn tbe scale, and so old Rough nnd Ready got the nomination and the Presidency. In 18f>2 Case, Buchanan and Douglas were the prominent candidates for the democratic nomi nation. A short time before the convention met there was an assemblage of the frienda of Frank Fierce in New Hampshire, and he was talked about in conncetion with the Presiden tial nomination. We happened to notice this, and placed Pieroc's name among those of the other a-plrauta, remarking that, after all, he mi$ht be the lucky man. Our prediction was verilled, and Pierce was elected. But the Chicago Convention of 1860 furnishes us w ith an example even more iu point, aince Mr. T ir.iola hi - only to call upon his Secretary of State in order to get all the particulars. The republicans wore as onttiu<jiastio for Sew ard theu as they avo fo? Lincoln now. Nay, their unanimity w?n much more remarkable. Statq convolutions declared for Seward as lory n6w declare for Lincoln. Legislatures recom mend^ Sewarfl as tliey no^ recommend Lin ear. Tie norc:nation of Seward was as much ; a ma'.ler of certainty as tho renomlnatiott Of L?n!flii? pow aeeuis to be. Yet when the dele gates assembled Seward stock fell below par at once, and an unknown lawyer from the backwood", whom nobody had ever heard or thought of beforo. b-vamo the nom'nea af tbe par'* and fbe President of the I'nitcA States. Now if such ar. aecHsnt eoitldbappcn to Seward, how mneh more Ukcly Is it to happen to Lineofci? If a person like '.he railspliVer could take tha norahiation away fcv>m .-sward, how much more likely is a h' ro like Hrant to take the oemiaa tlun away from di'henest Old Abr? Every body concedes that if Grant lx? nominated he will ba almost unanimously ejected; and but few are willing to believe that all parties will be foolish enough to decline to run suoh a candi date. Terhaps the BaUIseore Convention may be thus foo'Wh: but. the chances are aa nine to tan that It maybe wis*. The great meeting (this afternoon will probably a* eft a deoisive Influence upon this question. ?n<" : 1 Bi u'sp.

Notwithstanding tbe great and immediate excitements of tbe war, and although the publio attention seems bo oonoentrated on the achieve ments of our armies in Virginia and Geovgia, we are stoll wery day in wwipt of contribu tions tow aid* a sword fer Gcowal MoClellau* If we were to aocept a description of the human family from the cynical satirists, we might sup pose that the heroes of the hour were the only heroes of existence the people took any note. We might suppose that while such Illus trious and magnificent soldiorts as Grant and Sbernmn, Hancock, Warren, Wright, Tbomus and McPherson were every day acbieviug the most splendid successes ovor the enemy the people would hurdly consider that there were any other soldiers in existence but these. But we liavo the practical evidence of a nice little sum of money that this is not so. W e got dol lars from Bailors, afloat nnd ashore; from sol diers in camp, at home or in the hospital; from old men and boyB, women and children, and eves from plodding, busy civilians- little offer ings. making earnest tbe simple expression that comes with each ot' admiration o.nd love for General McClellan, and all showing how deeply the popularity of this hero Las t >kon hold of the national life. And all these offerings ? oartfest expressions of lovo towards a man who has served the country? are for the purchase of a swt.rd. Massachusetts bits given twenty-two thousand dollars worth of sword to Gen. Banks, Califor nia has given six thousand dollars worth to God. Hooker, and the people of this ctty ro cantly paid about a hundred thousand dollars for swords for several horoes. Now, perhaps the best practical sword for serrioe that a man can get is the ordinary lino officer's sabre. Very good copies of that weapon can bo pur chased for fifteen P words that Cost ;mmep,gftly more than that become baubles. Unquestionably they are still the expression of the noble admiration of the people for noble acts: but we are of opinion that if the people want to express their gratitude towards a great man by tbe gift of an article of value they might choose fl better article. They might make their expressioit move practical, and therefore better. In Europe--P8Pecia^y in England? this is done. Popular ber<>e9 are there rewarded very practically. It acin,? to b? assumed by stolid Bull that mere expres sions of admiration and honor must always be plentiful to great men, and he therefore does not lock up his appreciation of service done in a golden compliment that the recipient must bang upon the wall. John Bull provides for tho man he admires a house, or the money to buy one with, and a fund that shall furnish his hero with an Income. He assumes an inevitable association between genius and mutton, and argues simply and clearly that if a man gives to the service or tho people, all those years of his life in which other mm earn the money that they are to live on, it is the busiiress of the people to see that that man shall never experience so m?'an a wf.nt as th?' want of money. Nelson, Wellington and Cobden are instances of men who have received from the British government and people sueh an acknowledgment of their services. We are not by any moans so practical. Al though not one or our great generals is wealthy, though they are all dependent upon their pay. we subscribe thousands of dollars at tho mare mention of their names, and give them- these dollars in a way that c ompels them not to use a dollar. Wo tantalize a man who may have need of money with the gift of ton thousand dollars that he cannot spend ? that are of no more tise a? money than ten thousand barleycorns would be. We put our money in a form that associates It with a soldier's honor, and to spend tbe one is to tar nish the other. We de not believe that the people con tern pi ate or intend this solecism, and we suggest a change in the manner of th^fe popular expressions. Let the money be de voted to Ilia man in some other way. Wo have now received four hundred and sixty dol lars tor the purchase of a sword for Gene lal McClellan. This is so far a spon taneous expression of the adthlrers ?f tfcat sol ' dler. There has been no organization to solicit J or rit'^e money; but if there were a large sum would be brought out. and we would hope that it might not be spent on the goldsmiths. General McClellan probably does uek want any otlier sword than tbe one he wore st An ?Unaji. _ , Mnilr ?n the Park.
