The translations which we give bom the edito rials of the Mexican papers to-day are suggestive to the highest degree. The Trait d' Union, in one ef thorn articles, discusses the subject of Know Metfategtam, and exhibits it under the light of an Ignorant and suicidal movement, antagonistical to torn institutions, the character, and the past of the United States. The Universal devotee a eeiies of atlalesto the discussion of the Cuba question; eaile upon the Spanish American pevple to inter vene first in all diplomatic attempts either to change toe present condition of the island by a transfer of Me sovereignty, or to establish emancipation, which would be equally dangerous; and af etwards, if foroe torviorted to on the part cf the United Statas, to under the standa-d of the race, which would he sure to be unfurled by Mexico. Both these arti cles are deserving of attention. Our correspondent at Rio Janeiro, writing on April 28, furnishes an abstract of all the laws in feroe in the Brazilian ampire, by which the rights of citizens are guaranteed, and thetr duties towards toe executive aud society defined. He also gives Ala version ot the affair of the Amensaa schooner Bay City, mid to have been unnecessarily fired on by a British cruiser, as before reported, with an ?secant of the tteatmcnt of the mate and ths notion ef ear Consnl at Rto in the matter. The Know Nothing office holders at Washington one doomed to the guillotine. The Cabinet, after considerable cogitation, have decided to removs same two hundred of those pestilent fellows, and WOson, Commissioner of the General Laid Office, aed Clayton, Second Auiitor, are among the most prominent of the victims, the small fry are to walk the plank as soon as circumstances permit. It appears, firm oar despatch, that Major B. B. French, late Commissioner of Pabiic Buildings, who resigned his office and published a penitential incantation of hie Know Nothing errors just prior fie the municipal election in Washington, is to he provided for by another appointment. Thie looks like a bint to each Know Nothing sinner to wa'k up to the confessional and enter int.-) negotiations for a dispensation.

In this State it is pretty evident thai we are to have three dis tinct, well oefineds and antagonistic parties in | the fieW for the anccessiOD, to wit:? 1 1. The Know Nothings, or new American party. , . . 2. The Stward anti slavery diBamon party. 3. The f-poAs democracy lato these three parties the balk of all the outside factions of the day will probably be merged?the liquor law faction, the anti-liquor law faction, the demooratio hard shells and -soft shells, the Seward and toe silver gray whigs, the ultra liberty faction of Gerrit Smith and Fred Douglass, the laud reformers, the anti-renters, the women's rights women, and the Fourierite philosophers and free colored Americans, inclusive. In this view, let as see, from present indications, the relative strength of these three new parties in the Empire State, from and after oar next November elestion. At oar State election of last November, the vote for Governor resulted as follows:? For Clark, Seward liquor law whig............. 1M, 803 For Soy mour, eolt abetl anti-liquor law demo era* ?, For Ullman, Know Nothing 122,882 For Bronaon, hard sbell democrat 34,002 For B. B. Wood, independent free toiler 8,531 Total popular vote of the Stat* 678,102 ThiB exceeds by fifty thousand the aggregate vote for President in 1852, and upon the same ratio of increase we shall probably have by November next a total popular vote of six hundred thousand. The vote for Governor, as distributed last year, affords scarcely an ap proximation to the relative strength of the parties involved, omitting the liquor question. Upon that issne there was an inexplicable amount of cross-firing. The result, however, establishes the important fact that with all the force of the Nebraska agitation, In its first gloss, with all the unpopularity of Pierce, Mercy, Cushing and Forney, with all the de fections of the democracy, all the novelty of the liquor law, and all the inexperience of the Enow Nothinge, whose organization as a State party had then scarcely commenced, the Sew ard anti-Nebraska-temperanoe and anti-slavery coalition were unable to master one-third of the aggregate vote of the State. How stands the matter now ? The democra cy are still disorganized?the Seward coali tion have nothing to stand upon but the slavery agitation and ihc lhjuui law. The approach* ing election involves neither Governor nor Congressmen. It is limited to several State officers, the Legislature and town and city officials. Nor will the Assembly lie rendered a political test upon the election of a Senator. That question has been settled. Bat apon the maintenance, or modification, or repeal of this odious and despotic liquor law, the election of the new Legislature will inevitably turn, and the re sult will most probably give to the victorious party the inside track for the great campaign of 1856. This liquor issue cannot be smothered up in the repeal of the Nebraska bill. Too many substantial business int?Mto, too many positive individual political r^ts are in- | volved in this law to admit of the idea that the question of its repeal can be suffocated in the impracticable abstraction of the restoration of the Missouri line. The liquor interest, in ail its ramifications, will exert a tremendous Influence in our No vember State canvass. Where will it go ? Not with the Seward disunion coalition establish ing this despotic law?not, most assuredly, with the disorganized and unreliable democracy; bat with that party most likely to possess the strength and the will to defeat the law? this new American party. Since November last, it has Increased itftHpRgth to foil two hundred thousand men, atfd the work is still progressing. Can Seward muster the fifty thousand reinforcements, according to his vote of last fall, necessary to bring up his force to two hundred thousand? Extremely doubt ful. Can the spoils democracy hit upon any plan of democratic fusion sufficient to control in this State two hundred thousand votes, during the remnant of the allotted exist ence of this Pierce administration? Exceeding ly doubtful. Can any plan of fusion be invent ed between the spoils democracy and the Se ward coalition, upon any pretenoe or for any purpose whatever? No. Wc must then con clude that the contest next fall will be between the Seward party and the American party ; and from the instincts, interests, antecedents and fixed principles of the democracy in favor of free trade and free liquor, we must also con clude that the pressure of the liquor question will bring over a prodigious democratic balance of powtr to the Know Nothings. Here, however, the question arises, what ground do the Know Nothings occupy on this liquor law ? It wassloubtlul last fall; it seems now to be a sort of central ground. But wheu a definite stand upon this issue is all that is wanted to defeat the Seward holy alliance, not only in this State, but in other States, we are quite sure that the Know Nothings will ap propriate the means and the opportunity to do the work. ore the American party H \et them carry New York, ylvania next fall, and the rn election*, and they may New England and Ohio se .gipunity in reference to the fa all important, however, 1 November.

No party has to complain of promises unperformed,engagements unfulfilled, or heavy losses incurred on one side or the other. For once in operatio affairs there are no clouds to darken the feelings of gratification with which we can afford to look back on the events of the past season, er the brilliant prespects which open for the next. Both are conclusive as to the permanent and prosperous establishment of the Italian lyrical drama as one of cur local iaetiiutioaa. Various causes have contributed to bring about this happy result. One is undoubtedly he position and respectability of the two prin cipal directors?Messrs. Phalen and Goit?and the businete talent they have brought to beat on the affairs of the establishment. Another is in their choice of an associate having consi derable experience in theatrical matters, eon joined with well known address and tact?the Chevalier Wikoff. But the third, and not the least important, Is the faot of the two first nam ed gen tit men being private individuals, with out any previous connection either with artists or journalists. From the independence of their position as regards both, they have been able at once to secure the sup port of the most sensible and influential portion of the press, and to exercise an effective control over the artists with whom they have had to deal, by treating them fairly and kindly, and that) soothing the feelings and conciliating the good will of a proverbially irritable class. We have watched with extreme interest the successive efforts that have been made within the last twenty years to establish Italian Opera in this oity, and we probably know as much of the history and causes of failure of these attempts as any one. The first great ex periment of this sort was made by Palmo, him self an Italian, and a great amateur of the Opera. He had been successful in accumulating a fortune of from $100,000 to $150,000 in a caf? in Broadway, and his love of music induc ed him to hazard the hard earned fruits of his industry in a speculation which, however con genial it might have been to his tastes, was en tirely out of his line. He opened in Chambers street the first regular Italian Opera house established here; but after a few sea sons of heavy losses, which swallowed up the entire of his fortune, it broke down. One of the prinoipal causes of Palmo's failure was his incompetency to reconcile and control the jealousies and difficulties arising from the sensitiveness and irritability of his artists; but a more serious one still, was the readiness with which he allowed himself to be influenced by the ignorant suggestions and evil counsels of a email clique connootod with the press, who have subsequently earned far tlumuRWm the denomi nation of oyster house critics. The next attempt at Italian Opera was made In the Astor place house, under the manage ment of Sanquirioo and Patti. These persons were artists themselves, and consequently the oyster house critics had full sway over their affairs. The result was that before two seasons the enterprise went by the board from bad management. The third effort was made bj Mr. Edward P. Fry. He began his career by giving Mb confi dence to a particular section of the oyster house critics, and proscribing the sensible and independent portion of the press by refusing them the usual privileges. Under such in fluences there occurred what will always occur when vanity and ignorance reign supreme. Quarrels between the manager and his troupe, and quarrels between the press and the manager marked the whole of this unfortunate enterprise, and of necessity soon bionght It to a disastrous close. After Fry came Maretzek, who, undismayed by the fate of his predecessor, assumed all the pains and responsibilities of the Astor House management. Mr. Maretzek being an artist himself, of course had the same difficulties to contend with that all artists have to encounter when they become managers. They usually carry into the business administration of a the atre too much professional prejudice and bigot ry, and too little tact and knowledge of the world, to conduct matters to a successful re sult. Between the dictation of the oyster house critics, and the rivalries of artists, Maret zek got along for some years with varying fortunes, but on the whole unfortunately, and it was evident that from his efforts there was little to be hoped for as regards the permanent establishment of the Italian Opera amongst us. On the completion the Academy of Music, Ole Bull, conjointly with Ullmann and Stra kosch?two of them artists, and without any of the experience requisite in the management of great business enterprises?assumed the direc tion of that house. As usual, the rivalries of the singers, to say nothing of the quarrels of the principals themselves, and the old blighting influence of the oyster house critics, soon brought ruin upon the speculation; and a com mittee of the stockholder*?private gentlemen, having but very little previous experience in such matters, but still competent from their general business acquirements?were compelled to assume the management of the concern. Here was an entirely new rtgime, differing in their habits, notions and positions from tin persons who are generally placed at the head of theatrical affairs, independent of all low and paltry influences, whether arising from the miserable jealousies of artiste or the ridiculous intrigues ot the oyster bouse critics, and ani mated by but one laudable motive?a desire to elevate the public taste in musical matters, and advance the interests of art. By pursuing this just, impartial and well considered course towards the press as well as towards their ertis*s, composers, et hoe genu* ormne irrita bile, they have succeeded In demonstrating what had previously been considered doubt ful?that Italian Opera may be rendered suc cessful as a commercial speculation, when It unites the conditions of talent, gentlemanly feeling and judicious management. The SrEECH of Major Donkmox.?The great feature of the meeting of the Know Nothings in the Park, the other day, was the speech of Major Andrew Jackson Donelson, of Tennessee, against oar imbecile and faithless Pierce ad ministration. It in a bombshell from the Her mitage thrown Into the ranks of the spoils de mocracy. They mast now either definitely abandon Mr. Pierce or sink with him. This ?p??ch tells the whole story. It defines the troe national policy of the Know Nothings, , wbieb Jfl%wmr ezierrjinatioa Against this r*?t?i Pierce dynas*/ sad all concerned. Major Dooeison pntr the question in its legiti mate ebnpe to th? country, whether we shall hare a new government, administered by men of Union principles, or the oontinnanoe of a eorrnpt and trading coalition of Northern and Southern nniliflers, Van Baren free soil era of the Buffalo stamp, and Jeff. Davis secessionists and bBbrnters. Let the Know Notoinga circu late this speech of the adopted son and inti mate political confidant of Old Hickory. We want to know what the democracy propose to ?do with Mr. Pierce, and wnere they will tarn up Our Relations with thb Dominioan Repub lic?Another Stkoimkn op our Pierce and Marcy Diplomacy?We published yesterday a letter from Washington, from a reliable and well informed source, explanatory of the American diplomacy of Pieroe and Marcy with the interesting republic of Dominica, the white end oi the island of Hay it. The facts are very simple, and mnch of a piece with the doings of this treacherous and skulking administration in reference to Spain, Cuba, the Sandwich Islands snd Central America. Our Minister at Dominica made a favorable treaty with that government?the French and English with their ships of war, therenponcame up, and bul lied and threatened the poor Dominicans at such a rate that they were compelled to eat their own words, and oanoel the treaty with our ambassador. And there the matter stands. Ordinary men would say that here was au outrage committed by the French and Eaglish calling for instant redress?for reparation, even at the cannon's month, and at the risk of a general war. But where was that bold Ameri can spirit of Pierce, Marcy and Forney, under which tbey carried the terror of our bombshells and torches into Grey town? Oozed out, like the courage of Bob Acres, at their fingers' ends. It was the difference between an armed fleet of the Britfeh and French, and a defence less village of merchants and their inoffensive people. French and English terrorism has driven our Minister from Dominica, and has substantially appropriated that hitherto inde pendent power. Such is the Pierce interpreta tion oi the Monroe dootrine in the face of dan ger. Such 1b the rendering of the inaugural, when England or France stands in the way. Pierce and Marcy bapk oat, and so very stealthily that nothing wonld be known of it bat for the correspondents of the public press. Will the Washington Union be good enough, since the secret is out, to inform us whether the administration has or has not finally con sented to submit to the armed occupation of Dominica by England and France ? Are we to swallow this outrage as an offset to the Grey town bombardment, or is our Forney Cabinet waiting for those new frigates to be built ? The Administration and the Late Cuban Movement.?The more light that is thrown upon the late movement in Cuba, the more un accountable appears the conduct of the Pieroe administration, and the stronger the grounds for indignation among the Creoles. It appears that the discovery was made in this way: A government agent, in the confidence of the .State Department, placed himself in close com munication with the Junta and their friends here. This was the easier to do as at first pub licly and privately Mr. Pierce had professed deep sympathy for the cause of Cnban inde pendence, and had assured the leaders of as mnch, with many oaths and many promises, at several private interviews. Having wormed himself into the confidence of the Cabon sym pathizers here, the government agent had the address to persuade them that it was absolutely necessary that some one should go from hence to Cuba to asoertain by ocular inspection what might he expected from aa insurrectionary movement. The principle adopted, the spy offered to go himself provided the Junta here wonld accredit him to the principal Creoles of their party on the island; and assuredly no political party ever allowed itself to be more completely hoodwinked?his offer was accept ed, and he left On the island he met Manuel Pinto, Estrampes, and the other revolutionary chiefs; as they supposed, concerted measures with them ; as was the case in reality, sounded them as to their prospects, means and objects, and departed brimful oi information. Instantly on his return, he repaired to the State Department to draw his pay and commu nicate what he knew. Mr. Pierce and Mr. Marcy were placed in possession of the whole facte of the Cnban conspiracy. They had no sooner learned all than in their turn they trans ferred their information to the Spanish M'nia ter, who sent it to the Captain General. Hence it appears that the shocking deaths of Manuel Pinto, Estrampes and the other victims of the late coup d'ttat in Cuba are wholly the work of the present administration. It is difficult to conceive either a baser pros titution of the authority with which the Ame rican people have entrusted Mr. Pierce, or a grosser insult to their feelings. It may tie lawful for the despotic authorities of Caba to secure the submission of the unfortunates set under them by steeping their hands in blood, whenever their enormities are objected to ; but in God's name, the time has not come when the government of the United States can play the executioner or the spy.
