It is said tnat Governor Blgler is now in the field for that high office, and bis claim will be warmly pressed by his friends. The Star of the West brought 1413,791 in gold dust. Our correspondent at Great Salt Lake describes a wanton assault by a Mormon mob v ,)on a party of a 'K> officers and some ladies, and gives a sample ff Mormon justice in deciding cases where tne 8*iiit* and Gentiles are opponents. It is clear the Mormons will not fraternize with the oulaide kurba rians, and one or the other party must soon evacu. ate Utah, or a bloody collision will ensue. Oae of Costa Rica correspondents, writing on May 16th, refutes an assertion made by our correspond ent in IttvaM (NiiarsRua,) in March last, which itfkcted ad'irtely on the t run alt and c induct of the d*mecwjic army at the late siege of Granada ai d dn:'rg the revolutionary war.

The democratic reunion at Tammany Sail, tbe other night, in honor of the signal triumph ?f Henry A. Wise and the Virginia, democracy over tbe terrible Know Nothings is the only democratic meeting of any national importance which htut taken place in this city since the ratification of the nomination of Franklin Pierce in 1852. Since hit} election, oar demo cratic assemblages have been of a factious character, and chiefly upon the squabble* of individuals and cliques concerning the public plunder. This meeting of Thursday night, on the other band, was a reunion of these hitherto discordant elements, as by common consent, dropping the past, and lookiug to the future. In this light, the importance andsiguifkuncy of this spontaneous movement may well challenge our special attention. Tbe reunion of the New York democrats in 1852 waB achieved by the nomination of Frank lin Pierc, which was received as a satisfactory compromise both by Cass men and Van Buren men, national men and free soilem. This re union of 1855 is upon a tacit understanding that Mr. Pierce, hie Cabinet, Kitchen Cabinet and administration are to be thrown overboard, and counted out in the reconstruction ot the democratic party. Neither iu the resolutions, nor in the letters, nor in the speeches of this Tammany love feast of hard shells and soft shells, do we fiad any glorification of Mr. Pierce's publicly condemned and rotten estab* litbment at Washington. It is studiously avoided. Tammany Hall, thus following the sagacious policy af Mr. Wise in the Virginia canvass, initiates the great democratic move ment for 1856. It iB to cut loose tr<?m the ad ministration, to drop it, and to take a new de parture, upon new men and new issues, for the approaching Presidential contest. This is the most striking feature of this Tammany demon stration; and upon tbe platform thus indicated we may now confidently expect the reorganiza tion of tbe democratic party throughout the Union. It is the only basis upon which a re union can be achieved. There are some o'-her salient points in the proceedings of this Tammany celebration which cannot be overlooked. Fir-t, there is some thing very remarkable in the exultation of all concerned at the sweeping defeat suffered by tbe Know Nothings in Virginia. Their prestige of invincibility is broken; timid men pluck up courage, doubting men pluck up hope, despond ing men pluck up confidence, and our late des pairing adopted citizens of the demojratic faith are overflowing with enthusiasm. From an equally remarkable. ?but perfectly consistent unanimity of senti:^^??a.U this courage, hopo, confides* ?u?<i Jo^^F*b tres upon Henry A. Wise. He has suddenly become the lion of the democracy by acclamation; for even John Van Buren frankly unites iu aocording him thii high distinction. Thus Mr Wise is proclaimed the victorious standard bearer, not only of th?> Virginia demociacy, but of the party in New York, in Pennsylvania, and throughout the Union. Mr. Wife is now the living and tbe leading d( jdi cratic champion in the Held. Ilis splen did fight and his splendid success, with ail the fortunes, all tbe iears and all tbe hopes of the [ democracy resting upon his shoulders, have made bim so. Mr. Pierce, his Cabinet, his diplomats, and the prominent supporters of his imbecile and worthless administration, in chiding Ifnrcy, Cut-hing, Jell'. Davis, Buobanan, Hunter, Cas* [and Douglas, are all over shadowed by the pre-eminent claim* and ac'.ive talents aLd energy of H-nry A. Wise. This is a very carious and interesting feature of this new movement, and will unquestionably create a great fensation among the democratic old ;bgies and ustd up politicians. They mast sub mit, however, to stern necessity, and tak<> things as they come. Another important indication of this Tam many reunion celebration is the new programme dtfinid in its proceedings. It the Know No thing* are a little vainglorious and self con ceited in their party cre?d of th? political pro scription of foreigners and Catholic*, the demo crats may congratulite themselves on the dis covery of their true policy aj laid down hy Mr. Wise. This is now declared t > lie war to the knife upon Know N-ithin,?ism from the impre?rn-tble platform of th*; federal constitution. The ad ministration, its acts, professions, lailures and corruptions, are to be bljtted olf the b ok* ? the flavi ry question is to become a secondary ifsnc ? the liqnor law is to be considered a mere bagatelle ? everything, in fact, is to bo super seded by the new democratic idea of a direct hand-to hand fi^ht with Know Nothingism. ac cording to the brilliant example of Henry A. Wipe. The reunited New York democracy have thus decreed it, and initiated the cam paign of '56. Wo are thus f urly introduced into a new po litical epoch The old par ies nnd "heir old Is sues bare been sponged out as by a sort ot ge neral bankrupt law. The new American p arty, tak ng the course upon their novel and strin gent unconstitutional exaction*. have forced upon the democracy the policy of changing their tactics and their order of battle nccord ingly. The whig party having been sub-tan tially absorbed by the Know Nothings, the latter organization becomes tho living antago nistof tho "unterrified democracy " The demo orncy having placed themselves iu ha' tie arny to snit this new order of things, the question arises, what Is the prospect of the impendiug fight ? The first really important contest will be here Jn New York, at our next November election. The Know Nothings have upwards of two hundred thousand enrolled members in the lodge* of the State. This is nearly half onr aggregate popular vote. Can the demo cracy rally ft plurality against this formidable host? Hards and softs have shown tlut thry can mnater upwards of two hundred thousand men; nnd the re is now a prospect that they will , unite. Tuinni 'ny Il.dl aud the Custom Uou:C having led the way in casting oat that oorrupt inc?t>u8 to the p*rty kuowu as our Pierce ad ministration. We may then anticipate a tremendous coufitot in New York next November, tnstweeu the re united democracy and 'he Know NotMagi. Between there formidable purlieu tbe S?w*rd faction, the temperance faction, and all other secondary and third fractions and cliques, will probably be ground to powder as between '-tie upper and the nether millstone." Nor in it to be supposed that the Enow Nothings will per mit the democracy te plan the order of battle exuctly to suit taemeelvej. We apprehend that the former will hold the latter responsible for thiB tteree and Marcy failure at Washington; for its follies, blunders and corruptions; and for its unparalleled peace expenditures of eighty mil lion* u year. W< suspect that the Know No bin>ie will make the ou.-ting of this corrupt de mocratic concera a test question, and urge the t-ubcUtution ot a new admiaistration upon new principles, and with new men, as a public ae cewiiy. Ttie Philadelphia Know Nothing National Council of the Iflfc instant, in this general view litems up into an affair of national importance to all parties, all sections, and all candidates, especially of the American party. We presume that lbr the purpose of re-forming the scattered fragments of their party into a homogeneous ma- s, the Know Nothings at Philadelphia will see the importance of putting forward as their -champion, a new and popular man, North and South, East and West. Nor should we tie surprised were they to indicate their first choice as Live Oak George Law. It is very evident that Mr. Fillmore's popularity would be limited to tbe whig silver grays, a very small and inefficient clique. Nor do we believe that Clayton would answer a better purpose, or any old broken backed politician of either of the two old parties. In fact, we know ot no better man to bring forward against Henry A. Wise than this same Live Oak George Law. If the one is eloqueut in words, the other is eloquent in his works. If Wise can make great speeches, Law can make gr->at bridges, canals, and steamships. If Wise is a keen and sagacious politician, Law is a sjlid, reliable practical man. To turn up: The re union of the democracy has been started upon a new card, ignoring the administration, and sinking all minor ques tions in a crossing of bayonets with the Know Nothings, and against their unconstitutional oaths and obligations for the extirpation of Ca tholics and foreigners. The Know Nothings on their side, will have to soften down their in tolerance, and bigotry, and hold the democracy accountable for this Pierce dynasty and its corruptions, nolens volens. Such are the Bigns and suggestions of this momentous Tammany celebration. Now, let us see what can be done J at Philadelphia, to counteract this movemeat. 1 Dark lanterns and hard swearing have failed. Sound principles and Btrongmen are demanded by the people. One of flutsrcb'* Blen We devote a column or two elsewhere to a biography of George Law, after the manner of Plutarch. The firs'; peculiarity that will strike tbe reader is the manner of the sketch. It is couched in familiar simple language, such as every hod-carrier can understand, without long phrases or learned words: just such a style, in frhort, as we can suppose the plain homely narra'.ive of l'lutarch appeared to the Greek*. The great Greciau biographer said all that the i>aV>iic rii iiir<><] *u Know of the greatest heroes ana legislators in a few pages, about as many us there are in a modern sermon; our modera heroes have not been usually content with so (?mail a pittance. A volume is sc>mt allowance fur' them. Our presidential candidates h*ve all had tbeir volume, though, as a general thing, the book ends with the beginning of the noteworthy portion of the mau's lite; where firom it may happen singularly enough that the antiquary who in the year 3850 shill explor . tbe relics of the old American republic, might bud that there was a General uam^d Jacksoa who fought battles against the British *ud Creeks, and ran for President, but was beaten by another man named Adam'*, after which he probably died; likewise a man named Van Buren who was a Secretary of State, and ran tor President. after which hie name disap pears, and he alt-o probably died. Which is one of the Km all inconveniences o< these bio graphical volumes in anticipation of men's real lives. Plutarch and the author of the sketch of George Law did not wrire volumes about tbeir men: a few pages sufficed, and the an tiqnary wonld see at a glance that the life was unfinished. It appears that George Law, like almost all distinguished men, was country born and couu ti j bred. His father was known by the name ol " Butter John," from the fine quality of that nutritious article produced on his farm. George ft d cows, and read Burns, the Bible, and the life of William Ray till he was eighteen; theu fought bis lortune as a (lay laborer at $1 a day, carrying mortar, bricks and stone for m vou* His first employer tailed owing him all his wages. He could not pay his board bill. Harder than ever be wrought for com'* one else, saved tbe nioiey.and walked forty four miles in a day to pay it. 1b 1826, he got a step in tbe warld; be received 14s. a day; and being tweuty, read Sbnkfpeare, Pope'# Homer, and Byron. Very ?oon be learnt how to build locks oa canals, and wrought fvr a contractor at 20s. ad+y: w*nt to Virginia, took fever and ague, and bad bnd health for a year or two, as well as bad pay from some of his employers, who failed when pay day came round. Every thing stsemed against the joung man. Wrought still, however, at aqueducts aid canal locks; in 1830, had $2,600 faved, and bought a gold watch for $300. It was not till 1837 that he came to New York to live, and got two contracts on the Croion water works. Then fallowed the High Bridge, which he completed in 1849. Mean while, bo had been the leading man In Ihe Dry Dock Bank, the Harlem and tfob&wl- . clroads. and hi d been successful in all. II !Uen went into steamers: bnilt some, bought others, owned an immense number; to->k tbe lead in tbe es tablishment of regular intercourse between this and Califori'ia; and finally became one of the most influential capitalists in New York One thing Is certain from all this George Law must be a man of vast administrative ability must be admirably competent to ranrag* men and combine materials. Ho must lave a clear head, and bf gtfM with great de cision. energy, and powers of calculation; or be never would have become what he is Irom what be was. It f"> happens that of all the qualities which j arest present required lor the chief magistrate w' iV- rejublie, none Is so much ntetfel a? 'his j ?pame administrative ability, and knowledge of men and things. At Washington all is corrup- j tion and confusion. A man ia needed who ( have the capacity to unravel all these webs of confusion, and the honesty to preveat i their re-entangle went. From the skotoh thit ia printed elsewhere, George Law appears to i j poetess these qualities. The Law of Libel. ? We publish elsewhere the judgment in the case of Emery Mathews against Moses S. Beach, et at, proprietors of the Sun newspaper. The action was for pub lishing tbe account of an assault which wa* given to a reporter of the Sun by the party assaulted, and was published in the ordinary course of business. The defendants pleaded the truth of tbe libel and established it to the satisfaction ot the jury ; whereupon, Julge Bos worth having lucidly laid down the law ia his charge, a verdict was found for the defendants. This case will have a good effect in putting ? stop to a class ot libel .uits wheh have been Rowing too common ot late yeara. It has of ten happened here tbat a man who was unfor tunate in business or otherwise, and whose mis fortunes found their way into the papers, has attempted to revenge himself on society and retrieve his losses by an action of libel against the press. Hence newspaper proprietors have been placed in a dilemma between omitting es sential items of news, or running the risk of an action for libel. Tbe law allows them of course, to prove the truth of their libel; out juries are often hard to convince on this point, and witnesses are often not to be found at the right time. The rule which applies to the publication of an account of an assault will also, of course, cover the publication of a fair criticism of a play or an opera. It the truth of the facts stated can be proved, it will not matter whether simultaneously with the appearance of the cri ticism charged as libellous, the player or ma nager failed: that is his business, not that of editors. In the Fry case, for instance, we were prosecuted for criticising the Opera management, of Mr. Fry, and it was urged that as Mr. Fry had failed as a manager, therefore our critiques had injured him. We proved the truth of what we had stated. Yet by some misunderstanding of the law and the fact, the jury came to the conclusion that we ought to reimburse Mr. Fry the money he bad lost as a manager, be cause we had seen from afar the causes which would lead to his failure. It is to be hoped that this case of the Sun, together with the re cent legislation on the subject of libels, will guard juries against the repetition of such blun ders. Newspapers must be free to tell the truth about operas ani theatres, as weU as as saults in the streets, or there will be no more freedom of the press.
