Mew Tnrk, latirday, Manh S0* HUH, THE SUNDAY HERALD. Triple Sheet Te-Merrew. The business advertisements of the Herald hare increased so enormously that we shall lie Obligod to resort to the unusual step of publishing ? triple sheet to-morrow (Sunday). The most advantageous medium for city adver tisements is, we need scarcely tell our readers, oar Sunday issue. It gives tliem a larger circu lation than that of all the Sunday papers put to gether. It has this additional advantage, that it parthkes more of a fatpily character than that of tkeioircolatien of the week. The proper classification of advertisements adds greatly to their value. In order to insure this benefit the business community will have to send their orders to our office before half past eight this evening. mm oti, ETTROPZ.

So tho republicans, who have hardly yet succeeded in reorganising the South, are busily employsd in disorganising themselves. They are about to diverge into three distinct factions?one under Greeley, a second nnder Weed and a third under Dans, each with an organ sinng nbont bis neck, rnther burdensome to carry bat capable of making a great noise and creating considerable discord. Well, we wish Dsns luck in his enterprise and a full third for his share; and as to the republicans generally, we wish they may have a good timo end plenty of ht offices to enable them to enjoy it Thi Political K?t?IiUn Otwa a*^ik-Tb* New Ac* ?f N*M? W?i*htp?l?? " Lord, we know what we are, bat know not what we may be/' eaja toe unhappy Ophelia; and bow forcibly is this solemn foci impressed npon us when we look at the vicissitudes and transformations in ear party politics and poli ticians of the last half doaea-years. It seems as if it were but yesterday that we had a deci sion from the Sapieaae Court of the United States sllnniaf that "toe negro, under the constitution, has no righta which s white man is bound to respect" Bui where stands Sambo now? On the French tripod of "Liberty, Equality and Fraternity" he has become the Hindoo Brahma of American politics. To the disgust of Wendell Phillips even the old line democracy and the late higher caste Southern chivalry are down In the dirt muttering tbeir prayers and promises to "the almighty nigger." Truly, in this political revolution, as in the Niagara Falls and the big cedars of Caluoroia, fht women and living skeletons, and various other things, America beats the World. .... ?; - . Under "the Union as it wee" General Wade Hampton, with the addition of a thousand negro slaves, absolutely his, was the Bike of Devonshire of South Carolina. HI* favorite and hospitable country seat at Columbia was that of a principality in its luxurious appoint ments, accessories and surroundings. His de pendents and his slaves, his cotton fields, vine yards, flower gardens, stables and granaries were those of a prince. " Fallen from his high estate" what ia he now? We will let him answer for himself as he spoke at Columbia tbe other day, in his fraternising speech to the sym pathetic blacks for their political ftisiou with their late white masters. No personal motives, he oontended, conld influence him in this ap peal; "for," said he, "I em no longer a eitisen or the United States or or Sonth Carolina. The biU which gives tbe right of suffrage to you (his emancipated slaves') disfranchises me. I have not even a home here; for my home and the homes of sit who love my name have been laid in ashes. I have no political rights. I have nothing to bind me to this ruined land but the memories of the past, the affections I cherish for its people and the graves of my kindred." How oold and pointless, compared with this warm and living picture, is the figure of Marias brooding over tbe rains of Carthage. But our point in this case is the negro vote of the South. It is a Southern political balance of power; it covers the popular majority in South Carolina, the importance of which to the ruling white class is thoroughly grasped by Hampton. Like a wise man he accepts the issnes of the war and bows to the terms Congress. He appeals to the blacks, lately his slaves, as his political superiors, to try the political ex periment of harmonizing with their late white masters before they go over into the political service of strangers. There is In this appeal a degree of chivalry and political sagacity for higher than anything else in tbe line of chivalry of which. South Carolina nan Jityyfvtot The broad fact that the two races in'the South must henceforth harmonbie on a political bas? to avoid a bloody conflict of races is the ground covered by Wade Hampton. But the Northern radicals, and even the old Northern Bourbon democracy, are in the field lor this Southern negro balance of power. What, then, is most likely to follow from this rivalry tor the smiles of Sambo? Black though it maybe, we have to fpbk {his thing in the face. You cannot give "the South ern colored gentleman" the ballot and s'.ill expect to keep him out of office. Where he has the majority in the matter of color be must be bought off or the white man must stand back when the time comes. From the political ne cessities of this party or that party, therefore, it will be no matter for surprise if we hsve in the next Cougrees from toe Sonth five, ten or fifteen or twenty members of the House, and a scattering shot or two in the shape of a "dark complected" Senator. Colored gentle men for foreign missions, the Cabinet and the White House will then be In ordfr- When James Buohanan was our Minister at London, on one occasion at a court reception he waa asked what he thought of the ambassador from Haytl, a strapping African, gorgeous in gold lace, at his elbow. "I think," said "Old Buck," quizzing the glittering negro ; "I think that that iellow would fetch fifteen hundred dollars in New Orleans." Upon that platform "the favorite eon of Pennsylvania" (oh, Moses!) in 18M was elected President by the Southern white balance of power. But now, slavery out or the way, tbe contest in for the Southern black balance of power, and unless the radi cals In tbe North prove their professions by their acts they will lose it, notwithstanding the Southern machinery in tbe hands of Secretary Stanton. Frederick Douglass, the Rev. Mr. Smith or Box Brown, as representative blacks of tbe North, must be advanced to equal suf frage and a division of the spoils, or Sambo and Pompey in the South will follow the Southern banner of Wade Hampton. Governor Brown, Longstreet and Lee. The logical pro gramme irom negro suffrage in the South must be carried out by the republicans in the North, or the party will be broken to pieces. Thus there is a fair prospect that tho, radical Wade Hampton, of South Carolina, on his Southern platform, will yet be more than a match for the radicals of Massachusetts. Mhtrman'a PII(rlmiK?. General Sherman has obtalnott official lctve from the War Department to fo on his eonttm plated pilgrimage to the Holy Land.

Tooooo Coot Aaolo* Thorlow Wood, with a number of hk friends, office holders of thk city, have dabbed together and made ap a pone to parehase the Commer cial Advertiser, a New York evening paper, intending to oonvert it into a special organ for the purpose of sustaining them and helping them to hold on to the good plaoes they have secured under President Johnson. We have no doubt they will suooeed In their inmediate object; but we are very certain that they will kill the paper. In his salutatory a fbw days ago, which, from its enormous length as well as from the similarity it bore to a "last dying speech and oonfession," read more like a vale dictory, Weed entered Into a review of his past political history, telling what Presidents, Vice Presidents, Governors and Lieutenant Gover nors -hare befto owned by him, and naming those who have ventured to eet themselves up as independent men. Bat now that people have had time to wade through the article they find lb a singular pieok of work. It k like f|ie plgy of Hamlet with the character of j Hamlet left out. It contains a great man; of Tburlow Weed's personal reminiscences; but it omits the principal incident upon which hk subsequent political career was mainly founded?his connection with the anti Masonic excitement in the western part of thie State in 1836. -Ia the latter part of that year a man named William Morgan, who lived in Batavia with a very good looking yellow haired wife, threatened to expqae the secrets of masonry, of whioh Order he was a member; and it was currently reported that he had published a book for the purpose of j oarrying oat his threat Soon afterwards he disappeared suddenly and mysteriously, to the consternation of hk neighbors and the deep grief of hk wife, who, however, ooon afterwards oonsoled herself with another husband. Morgan's disappearance created Intense excitement and raised a strong feeling against secret societies, the Masons being suspected of having disposed of their refractory brother somewhere in the unfetfa | omable depths of Lake Ontario. Thnriow Weed wps at that time publishing a little paper out at Rochester, and wu feet going to the doga Seeing a chance of making something out of the Morgan excitement he jumped aboard, gave bis paper a new start under tbe name of the Anti-Mcuome Enquirer and took a prominent part in bnilding np a political and Masonic party in Western New York. On the eve of the next general election an old fellow named Tim Monroe was found drowned in Oak Orchard creek. The suggestive mind of Weed instantly hit upon the policy of passing poor Tim off for the missing Morgan. The report, was set afloat and the body brought to Rochester, when if was' discovered that Tim Monroe wore a heavy beard, while Morgan was a smooth-faced man. This was to-We?d a trifling difficulty. The mortal remains of old Tim were kept concealed from all eyes save those of a faithful lew until bo had been closely shaved, when he was publicly exhibited and passed off for Morgan. Some of tbe more timid who were in the plot expressed fears of tbe disoovery of the fraud, but were told by Weed that old Tim would make "a good enough Morgan until after election," a saying that has since passed into a proverb. It was this operation upon the corpse of Tim Monroe tbat gave to Tburlow Wood tbe title of the State barber, although of reoent years many persons have supposed that he obtained that nickname from his shaving operations in tbe lobby. The anti-Masonic excitement made Weed the leader of a powerful party in Western New York, and laid the foundation for the subsequent political success of William H. Seward. The vote of the anti-Masons increased from year to year, being thirty-three thousand for Solomon Sonthwlck in 1828, and one hun dred and twenty-eight thousand for Franok Granger in 1836. The party spread into other 8tatrs, ond ran a candidate for the Presidency, William Wirt, of Maryland, in 183L In 1838 Thuriow Weed went to Washington and made arrangements with Henry City to cany New York for John Qulncy Adams through the vote of the anti-Masons. But the secret bargain was discovered by Mordecai Manasseh Noah, of the Enquirer of this city, and hk exposure of it was the very means of oarrying New York for Andrew Jackson. Now, thk ia a very important page In tbe I political history of Thuriow Weed, and yet In ; hk voluminous reminiscences in hk new office holder's organ be forgets ad about ft, as well as about a groat many other interesting even's of thirty or forty years ago, to wbioh wa have not time to allude, aud which seem to demand a second and revised edition of hk valediotory salutatory. ITowever, we wish bim success in his enterprise, and power to sustain bis friends in the conlortable offices whioh luck has sent them. The Kenme .Hllitnry lt?jrriiiin?. The rejection by the Senate of such nomina tions as General Conch for Collector of Boston, General Frank Blair for Minister to Austria, and General Siocum as Naval Officer for this por% has created a very general fcoling of in dignation. These gentlemen are among the bravest and most deserving of the officers who gave their services towgrds putting down the rebellion. General Conch distinguished him self during Lee's invasion of Pennsylvania; General Blair earned high military honors in the West and Sontb, and General Slocum served ss division commander under Sherman in his famous march to the sea and back throngb the Carolines. Now, the rejection of such men for offices demanding a far interior capacity to theirs, and that in favor of mere partisans, can only be characterized as atrocious insolence. The whole country feels insulted In the Indig nity offered them. This is the worst thing that the radicals bare as yet attempted in Congress, and they may rest assured that they will be te suffer for it. Til New Theatrical Movement. We bear of a number of projects for the erection of new theatres and the Improvement of existing ones, all more or less consequent on the burning of the Winter Garden. Fore most among them is an enterprise started by the veteran nctor Hackett, who intends, in con junction with some of our moneyed men, erecting a first class t? mplo of the drama, in one of our fashionable centr s. Messrs. Stuart and Booth are also exerting themselves to effect a similar combination. We know no two gentlemen who are better ealoalated to plan n theatre that will be a credit to the metropolis. Barney Williams has taken a two yean' lease of the Broadway, and in addition to the improve ments already sCbetad by Manager Wood has in ooatemptation others which will contribute greatly to the attractiveness of that popular establishment During the intervale when the theatre will not bo oocupied for (he particular class of entertainments fa which he and Us talented wife appear it will be devoted to high clans oomedy. All these projects indicate a revival of the legitimate drama which has been so long thnut aside for the imported In decencies that have held possession of our boards. Of another and not less important reform we have a reasonable prospect, and that is the better construction of any new theatrical establishments that may be erected. As regards ventilation, comfortable seating and facility Of egress In case of lire, most of the existing theatres are a disgrace to the metropolis. TJm Eastern muddle still continues. It Jr impossible, ~ however^ not - to feel that events some eolation of Ms difficulty. One atysog terday's telegrams announced that the govern ment ot Gteoeo had asked the leading Eoro pean Powers to intervene he as to preventfto ther effusion of blood fa the island of Candia. From this It fa manifest that Greece is assum ing a more plueky and spirited attitude towards her natural and hereditary rival. Nothing, in fact, has been mom curious in connection with tide whole Eastern question than the hesitation and, apparent Tearfulness on the part both of Turkey and Greeoe to come into open collision. Neither on the pgr side nor on the other have hostile feelings been wanting. If Turkey bus provoked Greeoe by the rigorous measures ahe has adopted to maintain the integrity of the empire, Greeoe bee not toe torn provoked Turkey by the sym pathy which she haa extended and the asaistanoe whkh ebe haa lent to her fasurgent subjects. Nothing but n dread of uncertain but probable consequences has hitherto kept those two Powers from open oonflict The Ottoman gov ernment, knowing toll well the sympathy which is felt all over Europe for toe struggling Christians, has wisely abstained, in the midst of much provocation, from attacking Greece. Greeoe, on the other hand, sensible of her inability to struggle alone against the government of the Saltan, and uncertain of the light in which ber conduct might be viewed by the other European Powers, has not allowed W sympathy for the Cretans io carry her to too wild an extreme. There has been reserve on both sides. If we rightly understand this last tfelegram Greece has at length resolved to lling that reserve to the winds. Were .we called upoa to explain this grow ing boldness oi Greece, it would not, we think, be difficult to diacov?r sufficient reason for it in the ground Whioh Russia has taken and the in creasing anxiety which she is manifesting in toe Interests of thh Christian populations of Turkey. It is more than probable (hat Greece, in the re quest which she has presented to the European Powers, is backed np by the influence of Rus sia. It is ot least significant that Greeoe should adopt this course so soon after the pub lication of those diplomatic notes addressed by the Russian government to their representative at toe Court of St James. Russia has no desire to attempt the solution of the Eastern question by another Crimean war; bat recent events make it no longer doubtful that she has not yet finally abandoned those ambitions designs which, if realised, would seat ber in trinmph on the shores of the Bosphorus and make her flag the symbol of power on the waters of the Mediterranean. What sncoeaa will attend this move on the part of Groeoe, or what fresh com plications may spring from it, a few more days wiil determine. U?n?rtl Steeem. Major General Henry^W. Slocum area named by the President for the vacant position of naval officer of the port of New York and the Unit States Senate has refused to confirm this ad mirable nomination. General Slocum was educated at West Point He went to the war as Colonel of the Twenty-seventh regiment of New York Volunteers, and served in the battle of Bull run. Prompt thus to be present in the first possible battle, there was scarcely afterwards a great field on which the national cause was to be npheld from which he wee absent He went to foe Peninsula with the Army of the Potomac and did beroio service through all that terribly destructive campaign. He went through the memorable seven days aroned Richmond. At Crampton's Pom on foe 8outh Mountain he stormed and carried by assault a rebel position on a hill side, so rough and of such difficult access that the men who voted again*1 him would probably refuse to climb it in even these pcacefial, pastoral days, lie was at the battle of Antietam t He was at the Ohauccllorsville fight, commanding the Twelfth corps, and when lhn Eleventh corps broke Slocara's lines were what the enemy found In their way, and what kept them from sweeping like a deluge down the rear of our lines. There Slocnm saved the army. Slocum also commanded the Twelfth oorps through foe glorious three days of the Gettysburg battle, and opposed immediately all tbat magnificent fighting by whieb tbe enemy endeavored to turn the right?fighting their way all along his front from Spangleris Spring to Cemetery Hill. Slocum next went to the Western Army, and did snch efficient service that when tbe force was made op for Sherman's march from Atlanta to tbe eea, be was given tbe com mand of one of tbe two eoinmns into which Sherman's force was organised. Thus' from tbe first fight to tbe field of Joe Johnson's sur render Slocnm was in the front line of glorious service. He was fit for that servioe, bnt his opinions do not suit certain United States Senators, and be cannot have ofloe. Does not tbe party that rejects such candidates write its own sentence? ' ?? fowi Amis the Dead Mm." Heister Qymer, J. Glancy Jones, W. B.

"Old Back" clasps his haade in prayer, as usual, and, appealing to Providence, be thinks there is a chance under tbe utterly worthless constitu tion of Buchanan.
