The report of the oouderana ton and confiscation of the Spanish bark Maria Conccpcioa at Vera Cruz ia confirmed. In conse quence of this action of the Mexican authorities the commander of the Spanish fleet had threatened to j bombard the city, but was deterred from so doing by Com. Jarvis, of the American squadron, and the j catire Spanish fleet, with tlio exception of one vet- , sel, returned to Havana. I>egolJ?do, the liberal 1 general, had, it was believed, seized a conducts i with $1.100,000, bound tor Tutnpico, intending to I use the money in aid of tire expedition against the I capital. We have a brief telegraphic account of tire rav ages of a terrible storm which swept over a largo portion of the Southern country on Tuesday. At New Orleans buildings were prostrated, and boats were swamped in the river. Along the line of the Jackson Railroad a portion of the track was washed away, and a large number of houses were < arried off by the flood. Steamboits were blow n ashore and sugar houses demolished. The crops suffered severely. The storm was also very heavy at Baton Bonge and in portions of Hcorgia and Florida. The steamship Northern l.ight. from Aspiuwall, with two hundred and thirty two passengers, the mails and t'.'T.',000 in treasure, brought down to Panama by the steamship John L. Stephens, from Baa Francisco on the 11th ult., had not arrived wLco our paper went to press. The trip from San Francisco to New York ia usually made in from twenty two to twenty three days. The European mails to the l'2d uit., brought by the steamship Canada, arrived in this city from Boston last evening. We have already given it teiegraphio seminary of the news brought by the Canada.

A fanatical party, organized in one half of the country Ou principle, of deadly hostility to the other half, are making a violent effort to seize the reins of power: and in many portions of the Union a blinded and deluded people eeem determined to give their enaction to the insane proceeding, by permitting them to carry the popular elections through pluralities if not majorities. This prospective success of fanati cism is already beginning to affect the niore sensitive interests both North and South, while at th. same time it em boldens the demagogical lenders of the assailants to a more unblushing and threaten ing declaration of their aim*. In the East Wil son and Sumner proclaim the most bitter and violent abolition sentiments; and Seward is now returning from an almost triumphal pro gress through the Northwest, in which the plans of levolutlon have been avowed by hirn sell und followers with a distinctness never be fore attained, lie proclaims that the European idea must be applied to Americ an society, aad because Americans themselves will not do it. it must be done through European emigrants, who. escaping trom the alternative oi anarchy or oppression in their own country, have sought new hemes here. That the manner of obtaining these aims may be more clearly aad pointedly seen, Senator Seward has, in a moment of triumphant feeling, vaunted hi. brotherhood with John Crown. These facts are already producing commotion in many quarters. The South, alarmed at the prospect of a government avowedly hostile to its state of society, turns on every side looking for the path of safety. Sensible and pnu dent men look upon the future with unmingled alarm. Keitt and the South Caro lina school of politicians proclaim secession and resistance as the only resort Botts, on the other hand, announces that three hundred thou- I sand volunteers, even in the South, will turn their sickles into swords, and, abandoning the peaceful avocations of industry, compel sub mission at the point of the bayonet The brutal element, which unfortunately is too often listened to in times when a sense of danger rouses public feeling, displays itself already, and finds a mouthpiece La its congenial repre sentative. Pryor, who declaree himself ready to turn atsassin and plunge a dagger In the breast ol Lincoln if he should be elected. Whatever opinion we may entertain of these men and their sentiments, there I* one thing we muBt not forget. They are demagogues, and each in his own section studies the popular feeling, and gives expression to what he be lieves to be the thought aud desire of those arouud him. Nor is it alone in the South that these thunder mutterings can be caught by the attentive ear. They are heard here i in the Noitb, too. Those who live In the currents of trade may hear them in the in creasing distrust with which the paper of those whose business lies with the South is looked upon in financial circle*. Sensitive capital does not needlessly advance it* rate of interest from seven to eighteen per cent for this class cf in vestment One bank, the Artisans', has already given way before the pre?<ure ol distrust. and there are others, more than cautious citizens imagine, who In case of the installation of Lin coln aud a revolutionary policy at Washington would fall beneath the load of falling eecuri tiee. Ask those who know the course, of trade what cause, the difficulty that attends the col lection of Southern debta. or the granting of new redits to Southern merchants, and they will tell you that it is the fear of the inaugura tion of a revolutionary policy of government The ebullitions of brutality and faction are rife here in the North, too, and are evident to ?very careful ob.erver. Because we have fear lessly pursued the path of eur duty aa a jour nals. and held up the mirror of truth to paee ing event, on every side around ua. Northern demagogue, proclaim that we. too, should be the victim of brutal violence. Those who coincide with ua !a the view we take of the political necessities of the country? as the Boston Post?vent their spite in personal vituperation of us; tho-e whoae destructive policy we oppose?as the Providence Joui a'.? deny the >tatemenU of their own leader, and representative men, that their aim is to abolish slavery everywhere A little country paper in New Jeney prints in ita editorial column a violent and brutal letter against " the editor or the Hriut.n, ? ? ? whom It would be merciful to commit to the gallows." We cite these things merely as indications of the spirit of violence and unreason that is abroad in the land. Its anticipations may be wen in the unusual character that has Wen given to political clubs and organizations In the present canvas.. The old .ystem of ban ners. mottoes device., and shouta of the name of tome popular leader, has been displaced by one with military drill, cimuiated muskets and lancee. real cannon, a regular battle cry, and recognized rank and command. The sullen silence with which the multitude of people beheld ten thousand of these half -oldlrr* march through our streets a few nigbt ?ince is an unerring testimony of the feeling of dread that is beginning to pervade the public ?lad. Neither the drilled performers nor the spectators gave any evidence of honest entbu ?U-m. It was the premonitory dead march through the streets cf this commercial metropo lis. All of these signs of the time, are but the thuoder mattering, of the coming temp^t Let the leader, and the people all be fore warned. and roue, themselves to their utmost to prevent the destructive agitation that will follow the succem of the black republican ' psr'y.

' Cw,-I,to" ?* rnin tm Umly ^^^*p9bUemmUm Agmt* BMUlMf lu T1j? *d*ioes received by tbe City of Balti more confirm the impression that the rupture between Garibaldi and Count favour ia likely to lead to the moat aerioua consequences. With Ihe decided views entertained by both there eeema to be no chance of a reconcilement of tueir respective poiiciea. The Sardinian Pre mier believes that the werk of revolution has been carried aa far aa is con.uatent with the interests of Sardinia. Garibaldi takes the broad Italian view of the subject, and looks t.pon the work of national independence aa but half accomplished so long as any por tion ot the Italian people are left enslaved. To accomplish their liberation he would risk ail that has been already gained; and, consider ing the wonders that he has already achieved, we have no right to say that he proposes to him- j eelf an impossible task. It is, however, less with the prudence of his resolves than with the consequences likely to result from the se paration of his policy from that of Sardinia | that we have now to deal. Although the support of the latter in hia contemplated attack upon-Venice would Inevitably lead to a waro! the most formidable proportions, there ia far less risk to the cause of Italian independ ence in such an eventnality than in the opposi tion of interests which is being brought about by the apparently irreooncileable differences which have sprung up between him and the Tu rin Vabiaet. The effect is to divide and weaken the patriotic sentiment of Itaip. and to increase the chances of a reactionary movement. We see its influence in the statement contained in the last news, that the republican cause w..s gaming ground in Naples, and that the Dictator was inclining a favorable ear to its arguments. Now it is evident that, unless efforts be at once made to patch up the difficulties between the Sardinian government aad Garibaldi, the latter will be won over to the views of the red republicans. The result will then be that, in stead of tbe Two Sicilies being anneied to Sar dinia, they will receive republican institutions, and be rendered the general refuge ot all the rest less and discontented spirits of Europe. What the effect of such a state of things will be on the other continental populations may be judged of by the rapidity with which the revolutionary flame spread from country to country in 1818. In I ranee red republicanism, though scotched, is not dead, and only awaits a favorable oppor I tunity to again emerge from its hiding places. The German republicans do not give signs of life, but they are not the less eagerly watching the progress of events in Italy. Hungary is ripe tor revolt, and the government feels in such a ?Ute of insecurity there that all the garrisons have been replaced on a war footing. Even the newly anneied provinces of Sardinia would not be insensible to the republican infection, their fresh bora loyalty being aura to be over powered by the appeals of the man whom they regard as a sort of demi god. Thus the unity of Italy is placed be- j tween two dangers-tbat of a too precipitate I advance to tbe fulfilment of its objects by j an attack upon Venice, and of a division of its interests by the repudiation hy Gari- ' baldi of the policy of France and Sardinia. Ineiber case war is inevitable, and it will be for I Victor Emanuel to choose whether he will con tinue to unite his fortunes with those of his compatriots who have elevated him to his pre sent proud position, or await the chances of the reactionary combination which the unfurling of the red republican flag w ill be sure to provoke amongst the continental despots. A bold policy is. in our opinion, the only one for the King to pursue under the circumstances. It ia better to brave the power of Austria, even though unsupported by France, than to break up the bonds that at present unite all the Italian populations, and thus give to the red rvpubii- ! cans the chance of ruining the liberties which they have so gallantly woo. Either alternative, it will be seen, Involves a conflict of formidable proportions and of un certain duration. There is but one thing that can avert it and that is a chance too remote to dwell upon. The sale of Venice to Sardinia is a compromise of such obvious and pressing ex pediency and prudence that Austrian stateame, with their characteristic blindness are sure onlr to appreciate its wisdom when it is too lute to effect it Thk Metropolitan and Cocstt Nomina tions.?Tbe conventions of the different parties are very busy just now making nominations for all the office* to be filled at the approach ing election for tbe county, for the Legislature and for Congreaa. We do not attach any im- , portance to the dictum of any party or any convention, but are dbpoaed to support such men only as are qualified by their good charac ter and intelligence to administer faithfully the duties imposed upon them, whether it be upon i the bench, in the State Legislature or in the j halls of Congreaa. We peroelve that Keccrder Barnard has re- | calved the nomination of Tammany for the Su- 1 preme bench, and alao the nomination of Mo- | rart Hall. This will undoubtedly give him a j prestige when be comes before the people We see also that Judge Ruiaell got the no .linatu a for Recorder fiem a majority of the Tammany Convention, but by some means or other a row was got up before business wan concluded, aud the Convention broke up Mcrart Ilail ho* ever, has nominated him. and this will give bi n also a handsome prestige; while the fearless and upright course he haa pursued for '.he pa.-; four years as criminal ji dge h>c? commended him to tbe good will ot all tbe respectable por tion of the comm. nity?a frieodiy teeling which has not be?n diminished by ;be abuse heaped upon bin by a portion ot the press It is true that be has shown no mercy to convict ed criminals; on the contrary, he has been .ti* versally severe in his dealing? with them, anl it is only natural that this class ?.f p- pie and their friends should be hard In their denuncia tions of him. The nomination lor member? of the Assem bly Is only partially compiet.ui so that It Is difficult to pronounce any epia.on to what tbe result will be. The same may be aai-i of the no inatlons for member? of Congr-is; but ?e perceive a disposition to run some f the pi- a derer? of tbe Corporation for the-e places of and we can only hope that not one cf that , Infamous gang will be nominated; or If they are. that they will be rejected at the polls. We see that for representative of the Third dis trict Benjamin Wood ha? received tbe nomination of Tammany Hall and Mozart IT all, and there- ? fore stands a fair chance of election Mr Wcod ' is a crw man, btst be is a on cf s pericr b'.Jtl-' mm talents &i d understands the interests of the cit j far better then e mere politician or lew jer; he knowa more about the business of hia constituents than Mr. Sickles, who now rwpre eente the district, or than the editor of a Sunday paper, who knows still lees, Mr. Wood has the capacity to serve bis constituents well, and he is by far the beet mail at present in nomination in thst district, and having no one to compete with him who bis any chance at all, we presume he will be elected. In the Siath district, now represented by Boa. John Cochrane, there appears to be eotne opposition to his rerxmlnatioa; and there could not be a more forcible evidence of the dep a vity of the democratic party than to see the grogshop politicians who control the nomina tors endeavoring to reject such a representa tive as Br. Cochrane?a man of spotless charac ter, upright, refined, intelligent as a statesman, and a man of undoubted talent, who has proved himself not only an bonor to the metropolis, a portion of which he represents. but to Congress to substitute in hi.? place one of the plunderers of the Corporation. When party conventions go to such lengths as to supplant worthy men for the refuse ol the community, they are eati tled only to contempt, and no man who has the interest of the city or the country at heart will be bound by their action. We shall see. how ever, what the upshot of these convections will be, and we fancy that we have a great many scores jet to reckon up against them. The Saipeuloa of tb? Artlnai' Baak, aad the Trtbwwe aad Tlmas. I The Tnbv>i? acd Times are making a great l>''.uter over the suspension of the Artie ana Bank, and are both trying to say a great deal about it. and yet tell ae few facts as possible. Under the plea of unravelling the mystery, they are throwing dust in the eye* ol the public, so as to hide their own complicity in the a9air. Their whole course, however, reveals the fact that they are treading upon dangerous grourd, where one misstep may show to the world the part that they have played in this financial drama. They have attempted to drag Benjamin Wood into the snarl aad make him responsible, when. In fact, be ha- no more to do with it than any other depositor; and as to Fernando Wood, about whom so much has been said, he has no connection whatever with it, farther than the appointment of Mr Piatt to the Chamberlaincy. The fact of the matter is, the whole difficulty has been brought about by a family quarrel be tween those two journals and their managers. It appears from the report of the judicial pro ceedings and that of the stockholders over the question of Receiver, that Mr. Camp is a share holder in the Artisans' Bank; be is like wise a large owner of stock in the "Tribune Association." having purchased McLlrath's interest when that gentleman failed in the Nassau Bank, and wields more or lees in fluence over the course of that journal. Mr. Stout, the former City Chamberlain, is a large stockholder in the Shoe and Leather Bank, which has great power over the Ti nes, through funds advanced on the stock of that newspaper association, which lies in its vaults hypothecated. These gentlemen have thus been able to get up a newspaper w arfare over their operations in this affair, which has been conducted under the pretence of looking after the public interests. Mr. Stout w as appointed City Chamberlain by Fernando Wood, soon alter his first election to the office of Mayor, and was retained by Mayor Tit-maun. At that time Mr. Camp was a stock holder in the Shoe and Leather Bank, where Mr. Stout deposited the city funds. Those two gen tlemen were alio on quite Intimate terms, and were engaged together in several schemes; but | at length they had some misunderstanding about an eighty thousand dollar legacy, of which Mr. Stout wa one of the legatees. Since the last Legislature passed the act extending the term of office of the City Chamberlain, Mr. Camp, we are inlormed. f roished the Mayor a statement in connection with that legacy that made hrn have tears aa to the safety of the eity money. He ac ordingly appointed Mr. Piatt a respectable me: .bant, la hi? piece. That gentleman trun.-t terre.l the fund? of '.he city from the Shoe and Leather Baak to the Artisans'. The Times im mediately opened its ba'terie*,' and Mr. ! Stout operated upon the Clearing House and ? tin- bunks of the city, by managing in some i mysterious way to throw suspicions over the J operations of the Artisans' Brnk. The bank was th-.a force! *o withdraw frcm the Clearing ? I1ou-e. and his wa? followed by a systematic attack on all s'.d-s until, at la*t. it was forced j to yield to the p-essure. and now the Trib'ne 1 and T eg are both engaged in tnl?le*ding the public, for fear that the real facts will shew the .nsonndn e? of their concerns. Loans made to Senator Douglas we are told, are among 'he causae that brought this trouble i pen the Artisan*' Bank: but In 'his. a- In all other statements, the maia history is left unno ticed itcme two years since when Mr. Doug las wts engaged in hie Senatorial contest, it is t-tared that he obtained a loan of several thou sand dollars of the t-hoe and Leather Bank, and after the quarrel between Messrs Cemp atd Ctout it was transferred to the Artisan* Baak through the influence of the former. There being an impression at that time In the mlids ot the TWlrwe philosophers that they were ?oon to here the ?? Little Giant." with hie bag and br?*srage. In their party they took ?peclal Interest in this loan. He thus find these journal* mixed up in this fight and at tb* very bottom ot the Imbroglio, ar.d yet defrp ail within their power to mystify It. top-fTent the public at large from seeing the utter rottenness of tbelr establishments. They ere <uirrylr*on this republican family squab ble orer the city funds, which each desires to have in the bands of their friends, to bolster themselves up and enable them to scatter black republican dogmas throughout the North era Mates and are trembling lest an Investiga tiro will reveal this fact to the public Tit Tawunt Faction* Contra Oft or Irs S . . We perceive that the Tammany faction Is coml~g out of its shell at lad and support- J log the nion electoral ticket It Is about '> time that it did so. because It cannot help Itself. It- power is gone, and as an individual organ ization It can effect nothing any longer. The trinshrmation now going on among the differ ent p rties in the city Is of a chara ter that the grogshop politicians do not understand. It is a revolution fhr beyond their ken, and they are fr eed to fall into the stream without ecactly knowing the r?a-on why. They have drifted into a fog and are obliged to go with the cur rent The democratic party has been dead In Ceng res' for the last two ot three years, and the late convention* in Charleston and Balti more have laid it out stiff and flat all over tbe country. The new organization which haa sprung up is this city, composed of all tbe fr rmeats of parties which the exigencies of tbe umes have utterly broken up and demolished, is a great Union, constitutional, conservative party, whose origin and aims are wholly incomprehensible to the grogshop politicians, office holders and office seekers of Tammany, who see no farther than the spoils. It is equally incomprehensible to the men of the rotten and oorrupt Regency, though they are forced to chime in with it. The Regency is compelled to jump into the train, though much against its will, and travel on the grand Union railroad, being all the time in the dark as to the reason why it should be obliged to go out of its old track laid in the filth and mire of politics. But this great Union conservative party is am organization of new ideas aid statesmanlike views and purpose- and is therefore not presumed to come within the comprehension of the worn out political hacks ol Tammany, or the Albany Regency. K?m tad Hkitorlc?Am Editor Three Sheet* In Che Wled. The solid men of Boston tell rather a good story at the expense of a gentleman who once received a nomination to the highest office in the republic. The hero of the legend was much given to strong potations, and had a bad habit of mixing hit liquors quite "permiscuous," as Mr?. Gamp would say. Directly after the news of bis nomination was received at his favorite hoeielrie. the barkeeper thereof, a philosopher noted for the serenity of his de meanor, was observed to be Lmpermeated with that disease which a colored gentleman once termed "the disgust."' He declared, most em phatically. that the nomination was one not fit to be made, and that If the nominee should be elected it would be a dL-gr&ce to the country. When pressed foi his reasons, the knight of the toddy stick proceeded to say that the "stand ard bearer" ot his party drank, on one occa sion. before breakfast, and in the space of an bot.r, first, a bottle of Congress water; second, a glass of ale: third, a gin cocktail; fourth, a kali Lottie of champagne; fifth, a rum punch, and sixth, a brandy toddy; and the conclusion to which the man of spirit arrived was that a man who was so stupid as to mix his liquors in the manner above described was altogether too great a fool to be President of the United States. We might go a little further, aad say tW the result quite justified the barkeeper's predic tion ; but we are not writing political history. We have referred to the Boston anecdote aa being germane to a speciality In journalism which has been introduced by wit philosophical and philanthropic cotemporarias of the Tribune. In organizing their establishment upon the strictest Fourierlte principles they made pro vision for every department of labor, and, by a flight of enterprise far beyoad rivalry, they | have introduced a new element into the metro politan press. We refer to the drunken edito ' rial which appears in the Tribune once a month, or thereabouts. The bibulous philosopher who indites these remarkable effusion- is probably In the gutter three weeks out of four, and WTites In the intervals of his sprees. His latest article opens rather obscurely, as If he was gradually recovering from an extended drunk. It Is presumed to be a review of an ar ticle by a half crazy Southern editor, whose theory is that the safety of the Union can only be secured by the election of Mr. Douglas. The Southern editor Is particularly severe upon Yan cey. Jeff. Dark*, and the other fire-eaters; and the 7> ibio t man a? nearly as we can ascertain, seems to bure endeavored to cn-t ridicule upon bis rural cotemporary. The first paragraph of the Tribune article give.* token of cold water, lin gering headache and remorse. After drifting along In this calm sea for a matter of forty lines, the scribe waxes uthirst and imbibes some mild decoction, say small or lager bier. The effect of this potation Is not sufficiently inspiriting; so the writer takes to champagne, which leads to a brilliant rhetorical burst, wherein we are told that 'it is a most remarkable circumstance that the great danger of the South is in its perpetual propensity to be lulled; we would think that seventy millions of sirens were singing in those latitudes continually," and so on. Going along a little further, we flr.d trace* of the ene my Burgundy, or some stronger tipple, peeps out in this sentence :?"Yancey, the destroyer! Yancey, the disunionist!

These luminous sentences bring a paragraph to an effective close, and our bsro again eeeka inspiration from tbs bottle. This time he pro bsbly patronizes old port, and waxes eloquent, thus ?"Alas ' we can only say, catcb Yancey, comer Yancey, knock down Yancey, chain Yancey, gag Yancey, suppress Yancey, impri son Yancey lynch Ynncey.

Occasionally we get a faint glimmering of the purport of the article, but It is so terribly mixed up that even a Philadelphia lawyer would be puz/led to make out what the author was driving at The Idea seem* to be however, that the treasoa to the Union is not confined to the republican party, but is shared by the Southern fire eater* which is a wonderful discovery, perhap*.

Th* Pt#? of Ilia SabhaUrUM. Yesterday we published the laet Sunday law. pawed in April of thia year, which has *o e< cited the German population and other tid/eos as to induce them, in several district*. to insist upon a pledge for its repeal from candidate# for the, re This bill is worthy of the puritanical Jesuits who drew up a previous bill, which, uader a false name, they attempted te impose upon the State, and actually succeeded in cheating the whole Legislature who pawed it into tbe^belief that It was for a totally differ ent purpose than the observance of Sunday. Governor Morgan, though agreeing with the Sabbath Cofamittee in their main object, could not consent to lend himself to so palpable a ^ fraud, and accordingly vetoed the bill cu the ground that it was not what its title indicated, and that ft went to such, an extreme leagtii as to strike a deadly blow at innocent amusements' on the other six dajs of the week as well as oa Sunday. The title of the bill was An act to amend an act c-atitled an act to creab- a fund in aid oi th', | Society for the Reformation of Juvenile Delin quents in the City of New York, and for other purposes." Who would suppose that under this blind was hidden one of the most puritanical Sun day laws ever passed, worthy of the palmy days of Cotton Mather. An act had been previously j in existence creating a fund for the charitable j society above named by applying fines of vari ous kinds to that object, but there was nothing whatever about Sunday in it -The title,'"says ? Governor Morgan, "wholly fails to convey any idea of the contents or actual purposes of th>* ! bill, and I have reason to believe that it was in j consequence of this that it was allowed to pass without discussion, so that its true character and object were only discovered after its passage through both houses.'' This quotation is a two edged sword?it cuts both ways-it shows how little attention the republican Legis lature of the last Bession paid to the publio business, when such a bill could pass without ' any of the members knowing its contents; and the fraud of the title is well worthy of the Tar tuffes, the Mawworas, the Cantwells and the Joseph Surfaces who have originated the lata agitation against drinking lager bier -o t "the , Lord s day," and whose true types may be found in the saints who used to kill a cat oa Monday for catching mice on Sunday. This bill was levelled at all places of amuse ment, by compelling them to pay, even for oon i cert rooms, a license of $500 per annum. "The I result of this provision," says the Governor, "would be to close upon the other days of the - week many innoceat and beneficial places of amusement, whose profits are not sufficiently large to enable them to pay the sum." The other parts of the bill were of such a nature as to induce Mr. Morgan to say that "its provisions are so sweeping as to defeat the objects of its framera." It might be justly called a bill to make prisoners in their own houses of the whole population of the city for one day out of seven. This was too bad for even the Commissioners of I olice to attempt to engineer through the Le gislature. Though very willing to oblige the committee, tbey did not think it prudent or safe to run tilt to such an extent against public opinion. Tbey declined to make such a whole sale onslaught upon the civil and religious liberties of the people. There was nothing left but to smuggle it through the Legislature, like a slaver under false colors. They succeeded with the vigilant Legislature, but Governor Morgan discovered the cheat and would not take the responsibility of endorsing it. Nothing dnunted, they go to work again and perpetrate another pious fraud, which this time the pious Morgan swallows. Tbey got up a aew bill, which, with the most lad neon t baste, tbdy hurried through the Legislature at the fag end of the session, before the public were awnre of the movement That the republican party are responsible for it we proved yester day by the votes and the committee who put it through. Though ws republished it yesterday, we now wish to call special attention to some of its provision/* By tbi* measure the Innocent enjoyment* of "the gulden" and "the concert room" are pro hibited, and every description of "dramatic performance" or "parts of the tame." Of course oratorio* and aacred concerts are in cluded, and the beautiful air* from the operas sometimes played without the word* in *ur churches, and sometimes with other words suited to the occasion, accord ing to the example of John Wesley, who stole for his hymns the tunes of the most popular songs, remarking that the devil had appropriated all the beautiful music. The penalty for violation of this act is flee hundred dollars, betides imprisonment for the offence as a misdemeanor; and the nice point of the law is that "the Society for the Refor ? mation of Juvenile Delinquents" are authorized to sue for and recover the penalty, and apply it to their own use. This was deemed essential tbe Sabbatarians knew that If so un? popular and unconstitutional a law were left to be administered in tbe ordinary way, it would not be carried out to their satisfaction any more than the other Sunday laws. They con cluded that the bait of tbe fine would work like a charm, and that n charitable so ciety. s>a<' of whose member* are members of the Sabbath Committee, would be induced to prosecute, in order to get bold of tbe offender "s money. It seems that they have not been mistaken in their calculations, and that the society are getting up a number of cases, from which they expect to reap a rich harvest. We hope that in every instance la which there D a decision in tbeir favor an appeal will be taken to a higher court, on the ground of unconstitu tionality. The act carries a fraud and false hood on its face. It is entitled "An act to pre serve the public peace and order on the first day of the week, commonly called Sunday.'* In what respect can the public peace and or der" be said to be violated by the Innocent enjoyment cf a German "garden," or "the oon cord of *weet eouada" in a concert room? As well might the*e legislators call the anisic of pature-the melody of tbe birds, the rustling of tbe trees, the murmuring of the waves, the bab bling of brooks, tbe pattering of rain and the whistling of the winds?breaches of the publio peace. The very title of the bill Is a misnomer. Such is the blue law enacted for this city alone, by a tyrannical Legislature of black re publicans. and suck is tbe sneaking manner in which It has been fo!?ted into the statute
