They have leng since discovered that it wonld be greatly against their interest to Interfere in our business, nnd hence they have wisely concluded to keep out of a muss where they would be likely to get more blows than ha'pence. But lor eomo time past these usually shrewd Euro pean diplomat! ta Lave beeu deceived into believing that the people of the Nort'u were about to coin nit political suicide, and that what Eur i pe* da rod not do by iutervcution in our affairs we would ourselves accompEsh by in testine feuds and divisions. They labored un der the idea that there was a firm, compact and powerful peace parly in the North?a pnrty resolved od having peace with the rebels on any terms, cveu with the utter dissolution and destruction of the Union; and they further believed that the influence and power of this party were so great and irresistible that it would weuken, divide and demoralize the loyal North to such an extent that the recognition of Jeff. Davis' confederacy would follow a mat ter of course. The rebel organs and agents on this side of the Atlantic, as well us in Europe, lost no opportunity to circulate these ideas and foree them upon public attention. John Slidcll and his followers in Pans, and Mason aud his coterie in London, have done everything in their power to lead the European world to be lieve that the issue would be triumphantly de cioed by tho peace party in favor of Jeff. I)av s and the confederacy. It was through such fallacious reports that tebal stuck oc casionally became slightly inflated, and that the Rothschilds, of Paris and London, were in duced to advance five millions of francs to as sist Maximilian in his endeavors to npset the Mexican republic. In fact, the gre.it "peace party" of the North bad come to be the sheet anchor of the rebels nnd their friends?in cluding Napoleon, Palmerston and the London Tims?and its movements and operations were watched with moro tbun absorbing interest. Put, alas! for human hopes and combina tions. what will be tbe feelings of the friends and allies of the rebellion when they hear of the briliiaut and magnificent political cam paign just begun by the loyal North? We already know tb&t Jeff. Davis and his crew, with tbe remnant of his army, and the whole press of the -bogus confederacy, are in the lost stage of desperation at tbe Union successes and sentiments of the North. Napoleon and Palnu-rston, who have placed so much faith in tho vain boastings of Slidell and Mason, wdl be more than ever enraged and dif-pusted with their rebel friends. The noble Union and war letter of General McClel lan in reletvn'-c to the Chicago nomination will t ike tuem all by surprise. It has com plexly flanked every one of them. It has flanked Napoleon and Palmerston in their schemes for recognizing a rebel confederacy. It Las completely flanked J eff. Davis hv blocking the game of the peace party; aud it has flanked the Vallandigt ains, the Seymours and the Woods as thoroughly a? S-hcrman flanked llood at Atlanta, or Grant his accomplished opponent on the Weldon Railroad. McClellau is just as loyal as the other two Union candidates now before the people for tbe Presidency?-Lincoln and Fremont. The only question now is, which of these three candidates shall be chosen as the next President? Certainly tbe people will say. he who will most speedily end the war and restore the Union. As far as Fremont is concerned, he has not tbe ghost of a chance. The only support, he can get will be from a few ultra radicals and abolitionists, who alto gether will not muster a baker's dozen of votes for him. The peace party is vui fjrn?ri?, and has no affiliation with tbe masses of tbe Northern people. Fo its movements nepd not be taken into serious account. It is led and sustained by such persons as Val landightun, Fernando and Ben Wood, and en couraged by a number of characterless indi viduals. either in or out of the State Prison. The question of a choice for the next President is therefore still further reduced to the two remaining Union candidates?Lincoln . and McClellan. Tbe people of the North are re reived that there can be no separation of any of tbe States of tbe Union; and this at once decides the recession part of the question, killing off the peace men entirely. B"twe?n Lincoln and MoClellan it is easy for the people to choose. The great problem is. wbo is the most competent, who is the most fit to govern, and who will reflect most credit and honor upon our conn'ry? It is also necessary for the people to decide which of the two caudiAfos ! has the most education and patriotism, and which one will be most likely to accomplish the paramount work of reuniting tbe country. It is unnecessary for us'to forestall the popular decision, as any one who reads the newspapers carefully can decide for himself. At any rate, the plans nnd plotting* of the peace party are at an end. and a very few weeks will show us a government in power strong enough to put down rebellion at heme and to extinguish the last lingering hopes of Palmerston and Napo ! leou and all the "neutrals.'' whose best wish is tho destruction of tbe republic. Ntw YoreCitt Congressional Det.eoatiok. Now that tbe issues on the Presidential contest have been made plain and certain by the letter of McClellan, tbe demociacy should at once nominate the Ablest men that they can find to represent this city in tbe next Congress. Wba1 ever may be tbe result elsewhere, no person for a moment doubts that this city will roll up a larger majority for "Little Mac than has ever beeo given to a candidate for any office heretofore. Under this feeling and en thusiasm the democracy bavo the opportunity to reform our Congressional delegation, and sand men to Congress who will stand foremost in our national councils. and secure for us the position there which the wealth, intelligence and commercial importance of the city de mand. Tbe Woods, in coming out against "Little Mac," have completely shelved them selves, and any far lion which attempts to make barga ns with them will he annihilated by the pspuiai vote. Tammany has now the opportunity to regain her time-honored glory, and once more resume her place croon g the political powers of tbe day. if ?he will snly drop her little bargaining aud nominate men of known integrity and un dented ability for Congress. Let her throw overbosrd tbe trading and poddiiog politicians wbo have heretofore disgraced us In the halls of Congress, snd select men who appreciate and can represent tbe city as it should be ra presented ifi Uit national cquacUi. ?ftd railj her force* under the Modellen henner, end bat one result cen follow, end thet everwhelmingly in ber favor. The golden opportunity now presents iteelf for Tammany to redeem berseir from alt i.er peat follies, and remove the disgrace which our late Congressional delegation have brought upon the city. Will she do itt We hope and expect that she will. A tell I'poe NiiCltllua tar 'Mar* lilgdt. The Daily Neica, tbe organ of the copper head*. ic daily calling for another letter from McClellan on Issues involved in the foi theom iug Presidential election. It seems these patri otic brothers?Ben and Fernando?are not sat isfied with the platform McOlollan baa made for himself, but wiah to know Lis opinion upon the resolutions and platform of the Shent-per shent ? KiVvDtinn at Chicago. We are not mire but McClellan might throw a great deal of light on tbe obscure platform of that Convention if he would entirely uuburthen bis mind about the men who constructed It and the purposes for which it was made. 1 bis shent-per-sbent platform, we under stand, was concocted by Belmont and Barlow, tbe new regency of tbe democracy, sonic day last summer, in Wall street, and was purposely intended to be vague and inconclu sive?pretending much about peace, without determining tbe terms thereof. We fui therm ore understand, however, that that platform means a Northwestern confederacy, and tbe breaking up of the present Union, in order to initials the ridiculous sovi reign ties and principal ibee which have heretofore ex!.-ted in Germany. The finan ciers and speculators in Wall street have been trying to ?et the democrats into their clutches for several years past, and thought they had them now completely iu their hands; but McCleilan. in his letter of acceptance, has knocked their calculations all to pieces. If, however, McCtellnn should write another let ter, it will doubtless afford additional attrac tions and eclat to the campaign. He will have to show the difference between the democrats and tbe republicans, between himself and Lin coln. and explain the matter of his arrest of the members of the Maryland Legislature and other similat^arbitrary acts, which the radicals have on the record against him, and from which they endeavor to provo that in this respect he iR as bad as Lincoln himself. A second letter from McClellan. If he fully un burtheus himself, will therefore be both enter taining arid important; it will constitute a rare chapter in the history of the crashing political element" in the midst of which we nre whirl ing; it will throw light upon dark and hulden places among money changers, where plat forms are made as the Devil's broth is made by the witches in Macbeth, and upon sacred chaoels, in which corrupt political intriguers mingle in secrol and gamble away the nation's honor and existence, iu thimblerigging about the disposal of government offices. The truth is. a correct analysis of tbe records of Lincoln, McCleilan and Fremont, since the conutaencetr.enf of the war, would show that the necessities of the country are rtmniug us into a system of government similar to that which was developed in cer tain epochs in the histories of Rome and France, and in England during the Cominon Wf alth. As those nations were then transmuted from a condition of republicanism to imperial ism. co is this republic in a similar transition State. The cry is that this feeling lies alto gether, in the South. L is not so. The ten dency to imperialism is as strong North as it is South. It is true Lincoln .is not making as rapid stride in that diiection as Jeff. Davis: but he is drifting that way as fast as bis cur rency is approaching the inflated condition of tbe currency of the rebel imperialist. Whoever m iy be elected the next President of the United States will have either to ac knowledge the independence of the South or destroy their power. The power of Jeff. Duris must be destroyed at all hazaiUs, or the nation is lost forever. It must be destroyed, we say, or, hav ing run the race of other republics having had its day of. prosperity, domestic tranquillity, power and glory?the American republic, by its terrible and desolating civil' war. by the Fnb-cility of its rulers, by the un b'ushing corruption of its public agents, by tbe senility and timidity of its statesmen, and by the vicious and demoralizing tenden- - ties of the teachings lif petty and unscrupu lous demagogues, will gradually, pass away, and lsave upon the records of time only a fleeting memorial of its once stupendous great ness. Another and fuller letter from McClellan is therefore called for; , for'we doubt very much it he can be elected on the several plat forms on which he stands. The New Coi.t.E?*roR avp ytnvsTnjt.?Poor Greeley is very angry because Surveyor An drews it removed and Postmaster Wakeman is appointed in his place. Greeley abuses Wake mar. and Weed and Lincoln, and growls gene rally. Andrews is a very nice, clever gentle man: but then these republican patriots must loss their heads some time or other, and it is sweet to die for one's party, an Horace appro priately remarks The appointment of Wakeinnn to the Pur ?eyrrsbip was an attempt on tbe part of Mi Lincoln to extricate himself from a dilemma. It appears that his promises, like pie crust, are made to be broken, and that, like a shrewd pettifogger, he leaves a loophole by which to creep out ef every contract. He promised to make Wakeman Collector, and Chase resigned partly on account of a disagreement with Lin coln ab<>nt this appointment. The way being thus cleared. Wakemah's papers were made out. and Thurlow Weed carried them about in bis breast pockst for several weeks, waiting for orders to deliver them Then Fesscnden interfered not Seward, as is usually stated. Feseendsn, who knows nothing of financial nuiu.-ptncnt. wanted to secure tke friendship of Moses Taylor, who knows a great deal. Mr. Taylor was offered Cisco's place, but declined it. This only made Fos^enden more anxious to get a hold upon him, and s* he urged tbe appoint ment of Simeon Draper, who is a crony of Moses Taylor's, to the Cailectorship. Lincoln's backbone gave way. as usual,?and Draper got the ofllc*. The next thing was for Lincoln to escape from his promise to Wakeman, and this he did by giving him tbe Snrveyorshlp, which is not so good as tbe CoIIectorahip however. These changes about will maka some dis turbance in tbe republican ranks. Barney goes iuto retirement, end Draper goes into office, and Wakeman lnnvse the Foot Office; but what is to be done with Andrewaf He onnnot take Wakeman's deserted plaoe; for that is promised to James Kelly. Well, Wakeman will make a good Stmjor, m he Una made ? good Poatmaster. Draper may afao make ? good Collector. He is a portly, rosy fellow, full of ready wit and joviality, and foBs' of tb<" beat claret and of claret colored co*''- *n many respect* he reminds as of old 8am Swart wont. What will be his final*? Nofvthe same ua Swartwont's, we sincerely hope. Seymour tp Agsta for Rc-eleetlow. | To the a.HtoniHhment of everybody Horutio Seymour is np again for re-election as Governor of this Byte, llis renorainatlon la characteristic of the man and the faction by winch he is sur rounded. 1 Seymour tried to get the nomination at Chicago by tbo same tricky means he has se cured it at Albany?by declaring beforehand that be would not be a candid.de. He failed at Chicago on account of the overwhelming popularity of McOlellan; he succeeded at Albany by his friend* seizing a moment to nominate him when the Convention was in a delirium of enthusiasm at his appnrent self sacriflce in persisting to decline.# Seymour be longs to that order of politicians which has bad considerable notoriety within the past few years, and of which poor Pierce was the most prominent type. He has succeeded in getting the Albany nomination with the 6ame adroit ness that Old Abe succeeded in overcoming all competitors at Baltimore and securing the re publican nomination for the Presidency. But the most Impudent thing in the proceed ings of the Albany Convention is the adoption of the following resolution endorsing Sey mour:? Rrsrilvsd, Thftt to Ooverror Horatio S-vmour the gra titude or the democracy te ever due. Ttiey can ne\er lorgoi that It vit bp who. In lh- mtrtat of our dimmers nod in the face of an overbearing advi-rrary, wnR 'orn nviHt in uplifting the bannrr of constitutional ilberrv, which he has since borne unsullied through every bstllo: Hint It waa bo wbo by hi* wisdom srroeled public dis cid, by his tlrmripHS repelled MsrasMon* upon Stsie rlghir and personal llboity, and by the purity of hU pub lic lire and the elevation of bis purposes exhibited. In the midst of general corruntion and fiici iousuws, the highest qualities ol n tUteenun and a patriot. This is the boldest pteee of political effrontery we have encountered for a long time, ^bat bus Seymour done to entitle hirn to the prsti tude of the democracy? Who enubled him to '?uplift the banner of constitutional liberty?" We deny that either Seymour or his faction is entitled to any credit whatever in the case, and if the democracy hare any gratitude to give it is upon us, and not upon Seymour, it should be bestowed. In 1862. when a candi date for Governor, Seymour would have been defeated had we not taken up his cause and compelled the Regency to come out for the war and to plant Seymour on a thorough war platform. It was a tremendous job?the hardest we ever undertook. When Seymour began his speec1 es in the western part of tbe State, on bis way to New York and Brooklyn, it was with the greatest difficulty we could get him straightened be'ore reaching here. We say it required a mighty effort. He had no back bone himself, but by our exertions and those of John Van Buren, who was our assistant In this great work of political surgery, we man aged to get Seymour's vertebne in a tolerably firm condition. This elected him But he was^ no sooner elected thnu be showed his weak ness, went back upon the war democracy and came oul against tin? war. This p.ece of treach ery was followed by like movement? among the democracy in Connecticut, under Tom Seymour; -in Ohio, under Valiandigham; in Indiana, under Yoorbees. and elsewhere. What was tl>e conse quence? Wherever the democracy gained a foothold upon a war policy in 1862 they lost it in 1863 by rejecting it and following the lead of Seymour. Ti ns all the victories of the democ racy in one year were wiped out the next through the folly, the treachery and the cop-' perheadism of democratic leaders. On a War platform they were everywhere successful. When they abandoned it they were everywhere defeated. Aud now. having piloted Seymour and the dirty democracy by which he was sur rounded through the green and tdimy streams of copperhcadisna. and through ihe Red Sea ol disuniopism. in which he would have been on gulnbed and sent to political perdition for ever, we see him and his faotion, wlih astounding effronterv. coining ont and affnm ing that to them belong the fiuits of demo cratic successes two years ago. all of which would Imvri been 'inglorious -defeats had it not been for us. Here is complete evidence of the foul means politicians will sometimes resort to, to accomplish their ends. Seymour did not deserve to be nominated, and he does not deserve to be elected. His nomination was accomplished by a delusion, by humbnggery and trickery. It will Impart n6 enthusiasm to tbe nntional ticket, and thee who were parties to tie deception may take to themselves the credit if the Stale of Now York W utterly lost to the democracy next No vein bar Two Gruat Pi.ATFnr.Ms?During the past few woks we have been deluged with platforn *. The conventions issued platforms for their different candidates, and tbeso. in reply, issued their own platforms. Seeing tbN a host ot individuals, all more or less celebrated or notorious, fol lowed tbe example set by Lincoln, Fremont and McOellao. even down to Colorado Jewett and the Chevalier George Francis Train. Taking these all in all. however, they are eclipsed by tbe platforms just issued by Lieu tenant General Grant and Major General Sher man To these truly great and energetic men we owe whatever successes btTe cr? wred our arms. To their determined and undaunted Talor as well undoubted strategical ability are we indebted for the greatest and most de cided victories to which we can point. These fwo great generals bare, we repeat, issued their platforms, end the public seem to Uke less notice of these important document* than they should. Grant and ehe-man demand more men. thai tbey may. thus reinforced, strike tbe last blow, gain the final victory, which shall destroy the rebellior and restore onr glorious Union. We knjw that General llcOellan ignored the rotten peace platform of tbe Chicago Convention. What does be say to those of Generals Grant and Sherman* Ti ey aak for men. even by a draft if they are not to be procured In time by other means Tbey are determired to conquer a peace, and must have the reqnlslte force te carry out their great purpose What does General McOellan think about these last but greatest platforms* W# are anxious to hear from bin. and may safely odd that tbe people dealre information upon this subject ae ardently ae we do.

A Con* ms Gkack for thk Woods.?The W oods have played their last card, and it bus failed; or, to make the simile more appro priate, their last ticket in tbe political lottery has drawn a blank. Turned out of the State ( ouvention, they Lave come back to tbe city out ol spirits, out of pocket and out at tbe el bows. Ben Wood, who still sticks to peace at any price, denounces the Convention as "a fatce in yesterday's 2VYv>*. Tammany Hall bos been declared the only regular organiza tion, and Mozart Hall is closed up. Of conrBO Fernando is closed up also. He has been biased In Congress, and hissed at Chicago, and now a Democratic State Convention has hissed iiim, refused to hear him speuk, and turned off his faction as irregular. Fernando may at tempt to speak at the McClellan meeting to day; bat wo hone, that, unlike Pecksnifl, he will not impudently incur further abasement. 1 he Woods and the peace faction have received their coup de grace.
