The steamship Vanderbilt, Capt.iin Lefevre, did not. go to sea yesterday, in t< e of the heavy swell on the bar, Captain L. deeming it im prudent to cross on a falling tide, ^he will pro teei on her voyage at ten o'clock this forenoon. We shall send our latest edition, containing news to four o'clock this morning, by the V"., thua giving Karope one day later American intel ligent c. She will reach England before the squadron, which left Portland yesterday a' ternoon with the Prince of Wales aad suite, will arrive in England. The news of the de parture of the royal fleet, and of the completion of the triumphal tour of the Prince through the United States, will thus be known in England tw j or three days in advance of the appearance of the squadron off Plymouth, where It la to be met by the Channel squadron. The Vanderbilt will arrive at Southampton on the 30th instant. The Duke of Newcastle promised to return to England with the Prince on the fiM of November. He will probably artive at home on the 2d or 3d of that month. Til* Nawi, The steamship City of Manchester. Captain Mier houae, from Liverpool 3d, and Queenstown 4th inat.. arrived at this port yesterday. She brings oo news, her advices having been anticipated by the Arabia. The steamship Vanderbilt left this port yester day for Southampton and Havre, with 181 passen gers and |->'.'l in specie. The City of Balti more also left thin (port yesterday for Qa sens town and Liverpool, with 265 pa?engers. She takes no specie. Owing to the strong northeaster ly gale whit h prevailed yesterday, the Vanderbilt came to anchor at Quarantine, from whence ahe will depart at ten o'clock this forenoon for Europe. It is reported that the City of Baltimore anchored In the lower bay. The northeasterly winds that prevailed during all of last week increased to a violent gale on Friday evening, which continued without abatement up to an early hour this morning. We have as yet heard of no disasters to shipping in the neighborhood of New York, but none of the Southern steamers due st this port had arrived up to the hour of going to press. Despatches from Norfolk and Baltimore state that the gale was very severe in Chesapeake Bay, and that the lower portion of the first men tioned city was completely submerged by the storm. The Prior* of Wales and his suits left Boston yesterday forenoon, smid enthusiastic cheers from the cit^ens, and accompanied by Governor (tanks snd other distincuishe J gentlemen, for Portland, where he waa received hy the Governor ofthe State ?f M ?;ne the Mayor of Portland, a respectable Oody of military and the entire population. He was escorted through the street ?> of the city, and Anally embarked on board the British war steamer tlero. The cannon of the war ships snd the bat teries thundered, the bsnds played the nstionai am of Britain and America, the vast concourse of people shouted their sdieux, snd the royal squsdron steamed away for Metric England. The < losing scenes of the Prince's tour are graphically de scribed in oar columna this morning. The Republican City snd County Convention met laat evening at the headquarters . No. 619 Broadway, to make a nomination for candidate for Judge of the Superior Court, in place of Judge Plsrrepont. resigned. thres years of whose term are yet unexpired. The convention went into an In formal ballot, with the following result : James W. White, 76; John Slauseon, 6: scsttering, 4. Mr. White was then unanimously nominated by acclamation, after whhh the convention s<\jourMd. The National Democratic City and County Con vention assembled last evening at Mosart Hall, for the purpose of nominating a person to fill the plsct f Judge Pierrepont, as Judge of the superior C >urt. After a short session . which was hel l with < loss J loors, they nominated Frederick A. Tal tnadxe by acclamation. The Cmoner's investigation Into the clr um stance- stteudmg the desth of Mrs. Jane Augusta Blankman, formerly known as Fanny White, was resumed v esterday. A full report of the testimony is given in another column. At the conclusion of the evidence the jury rendered a verdict that the deceased died of spoplexy. The counsel of Mr. Devlin have moved, before Judge leonard. in the Supreme Court, for a writ of certi jrari to bring the matter before the General Term. The plea of Mr. Devlin, which was to have been given in the Court of Oyer and Terminer, was postponed nntil Monday morning, in order to give Judge Leonard time to read the pspers on the w.otk?n for a certiorari.

In nearly all the Southern States the public in anticipation of Lincoln's election, appears to be confused and paralyzed, driiurg ubout, apprehensive of danger and mischief to SoutLetn institutions, yet undetermined what to do. There is one State, however, in which it is very evident, from her organs of public opinim, that the minds of the people are made tip. That State, of course, is South Carolina. Nearly all ber public journals concur in the opinion that she must and will secede on re ceipt of satisfactory information that Abraham Lincoln is elected President of the United States. Nor do the newspapers of South C&'olina stand unsupported upon this point by the action of the people. On the contrary, they have lately elected a State Legislature in which the K'ceselon element, Including R. Barnwell Khett, from Charleston, largely predominates. This Legislature is to meet at Columbia on the <;th day of November, to elect the electors whose duty it will be to cast the vote of the Mate for President and Vice President ; and said Legislature is to attend to such other busi ness on tbe occasion, according to the Gover nor's proclamation. " a? the safety of the State may require " This is generally con-trued aj meaning that active legislation will be re quired, providing for the withdrawal of South Carolina from the Union, including the proper notice in advance to the other copartners as to the general government, that South Carolina, from and after, say the 4 th dty of March next, must be counted out. This idea of South Carolina leading off in the work of a Southern confederacy meets w ith en couragement from the secessionists of Georgia Alabama and Mississippi, and even in Tennessee they are sympathizers in the movement. Mean time the young men of the Palmetto chivalry are organizing themselves as a volunteer po litico military body, of the style and title of " Minute Men." The badge adopted is blue rosette, two anil a half inches in diameter. with a military button in the centre, to be worn on tbe side of the hat " Some of them also wear "? red scarf, with the letters M. M. imprinted on It." The Columbia ( hroHnian , speaking of this organization, sajs ''the recent elections wHl doubtless stimulate its growth, and we would not be eurprifed if, in a month, with proper drill and discipline, it furnishes an army strong enough to maintain any independent move that msy be made by the Southern States." AU this has a very revolutionary aspect; but we find in our last received issue of the Charleston Mercury a little paragraph which gives "a silver lining to this cloud" of war. It is a public no tice in behalf of Seaator Hammond. whose sound and statesmanlike conservatism U well known to our readers, that ''he will be a candi date before the Legislature for re election to tbe United States Senate;" that "as rumors of his withdrawal have brm current, we deem it an act of justice to him to state the fact" that be does not withdraw; but that "whatever may have been his intentions at a previous period, the present critical aspect of affairs prevents hi* voluntary retirement from the public service."' Now we dare say that Senator Hammond is not prepared to hold the election of Lincoln as our next President a sufficient cause in itself for the secession of South Carolina, but that he holds to the opinion that she should await from the new administration some official action le veiled at the peace and safety of the Southern States. To this end. we presume, Mr. Ham mond desires to be present in tly Senate at Washington after the 4th of March next, in order that he may consult with Southern Sena tors and representatives as to the course they stall pursue, should the composition of "Old Abe's" Cabinet, or the drift of his Inaugural ad dress, foreshadow the prosecution of an active abolition programme against Southern slavery and "the slave power." On the day of the Presidential election, how ever. the new secession Legislature of South Carolina will assemble to deliberate upon this very question. Tbe news of Lincoln's election among these men will be very apt to drown all considerations of prudent delay; and so it Uby no means impossible that South Carolina may cross the Rubicon, or do something which will compel Mr. Buchanan. In his annual December message, to call the attention of Congress to the subject, in order to avert the catastrophe of a threatened collision between the federal and the local authorities of tbe State. In any event, with Lincoln's election we shall have a great upheaving, overturning and re construction in all our political affairs. It is not surprising that, foteseelng this war of the elements gathering in the horizon, our kite-fly ers, speculators and fancy men of Wall street should be walking about with their heads to the ground, impatiently awaiting the issue of i this Presidential battle. OomjtboUi B Haws and the Prcuc Caa I Errors. ? It Is stated that Comptroller Haws is preparing a statement of all the sums of money appropriated out of the public funds for some j ears past to the different charitable institu tions of the city, and, as far as can be obtained, the amount of good resulting from those appro priations. We cannot commend toe highly the value of such a report. If it be made full and thorough. Vast sums of money are ezpeniled T Jfar out of the tax levy, by various or dinances of the Legislature and Common Coun cil, and if the publlo were acquainted with the mode of distribution, and the actual amount of good otherwise resulting from the proper or improper disposition of it, it would lead, perhaps, to the exercise of more discrimination in raaklcg these donations We have very little doubt that there are plenty of evils in the management of oar public charities which cry aloud for ccrrectioo; and it would be well to know what institutions are governed it a nsrr w and Bceaa sjitit.ani ahvi of ti?a are productive of moat good to the objects for which they are specially designed. As an in b'.aace of tie ungenerous spirit* in which some of these institutions may be managed, we may mention incidentally that students of the Ho meop&thic College, chartered by the last Legis lature, made application to visit the wards of one of our public hospitals, as the students of all medical colleges are entitled to do; they were refused admittance, and upon inquiry they found that they were excluded at the or der of an allopathic physician. We merely cite this incident to show how narrow minded are the managers of some of these public charities, which are supported in part by funds contributed from a common source, when thete young men could be excluded from a hospital because they chose to study medicine according to a different theory from that of the conductors thereof. Upon investigating the ma nagement of other public charities it will per haps be found that they are not administered with a view to the public good so much as In a personal and narrow spirit. We trust, then, that Mr. Haws will be enabled to give us a full and true history of every charitable Institution in the city which may be the recipient of any portion of the public money. Such an expo sition will do a great deal of good. Am?rlran 8?nwtlon? Daring 18GO? What Nut : The Prince of Wales sailed for home jehtenluy. embarking at Portland, Maine; and % etds our latest sensation. The year I860 has beeu fruitful in exciting events; our wide awake, mercmial people have had their binds and theii heads full all the time. As the man in the play says, "there has been so much goint? on that hardly anybody could tell what was going on." Those indomitable fellows, the New York reporters, liave had just as much as they could do (and that is saying a great deal) to keep pace with the railway progress of events. As for the ISritbh journalists who came over with a view to astonish iia by their superiority, they have been a week or ten <l?ys behind. an<l #0 completely bothered by the whirl and roar and bustle about their hea ls as to be reduced to a condition bordering upon helpless idiocy. We started off iu this memorable sensation year with the general smashing up of the democratic party, an organization which ouje assumed a Divine right to govern the country, but which became so utterly unprincipled and corrupt as to inspire nothing but sentiments of the most pro found contempt in the mind of every sensible man. So, at Charleston, the democratic party, after a fierce struggle for life? a tremendoty effort for existence? expired before the eyes of the nation, and went to its grave unwept, un honored and unsung: ita only mourners were a few scurvy politicians who wept over the pros pect that they might be forced to earn an honest living. A little sensation was caused by a feeble at tempt to galvanize the democratic corpse at Baltimore; but this was crushed out by the near approach of the great event of the year, the ar rival of the Japanese Embassy, the first mix tion ever sent by the Oriental Britons to any Western Power. The Japanese princes c:eated a very great sensation. At Washing ton, Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York there was a Japanese fever, and the public pulse rose to an unprece dented be'ght. Nor was there time enough for us to ccol cff before the Great Eastern came stesmiog up the bay. amid the roar of cannon, the fluttering of counties* flags, and the accla matioos o( thousands of delighted people. The big ship made a sensation only second to that caused by our Japanese guests. If the G re it Eastern bad been decently managed the public cutiosity about her might have been turned to much more profitable account Let us hope Mr Bull got an idea or two upon that bead. As the Great Eastern departs, much after the manner of an overgrown schoolboy who has b? en justly snubbed, a royal squadron is seen ridicg at anchor In the Gulf of St. Lawrence. It bas borne to the shores of the New World the heir apparent to one of the oldest and proudest o( European thrones. Under triumphal arches, over rose strewn pathways, tnrough gaily deco rated cities, followed by the shouts of thousands of loyal provincials, this young Prince makts his way to the frontier of the United States. The republic greets him most cotdially, as the immediate representative of a great and friendly Power. For the first time In the history of the nation a Prince of the blood royal Is lodged In the White House, and rides up Broadway side by side with the chief m.igisuateof the city. Old Boston? the scene of the massacre, of tte mustering of the Conti nental armies, of the desperate encounter on Breed '*,0111? old Boston pours out all her learn ing, her wit. her refinement and her beauty to do honor to the lineal descendant of George the Third. And with the debarkation at a port often menaced by British arms, the eventful drama is brought to an appropriate close. The question now Is. alter all this excitement, are we to have a little quiet, or is there another teosation following cloeely upon the heels of those we have already experienced! We do not pretend to looh Into futurity, but it seems to us that our neat sensation may be one of % vety serious character. On the 6th of next month we are to elect a President of the United btatee. If Mr. Lincoln should be chosen ? and t' ere U every probability that his party will succeed? then we shall have a President for tbe North rather than for the whole Union. At any rate, that is the ground already taken by tbe Scuth, where, it is useless to deny or at t? nrpt to conceal the fact, a storm Is brewing. Wall street, ever sensitive to real danger, bas already begun to scent gunpowder in the Southern breezes. The stock speculators are holding tiff, and will not operate, one way or tbe other, t ntll after tie election. How far the feeling of dUaffpction in the South extends, or what will be its results, are mat*ers beyond human ken. We hope that our next sensaticn will be as harmless as those which have pre ceded It: but we have very serious fears that such will not be tbe case. Tux Diumsttc OormtWT Law -As Iw pout ant Ph to v?

In view of the import ance of this decision, we have print ed it in full elsewhere, and persons who are hereafter tempted to indnlge in the very economical, though not very praiseworthy, practice of stealing the fruits of other people's mental labor, can no longer set up the plea that the law is worthless. Mr. Justice Sprague is a sound jurist, and bis decision will scarcely be revere# d by any federal judge In the country. The decision In this case U of Importance to the gtneral public aB well as to the authors and managers. The public demand fresh plays, acd the history, romance and poetry of our country offer a splendid field to dramatic an thers. If they can be secured in their copy tight, so as to be remunerated for their labors like other literary men. it will not be many years before we shall have an American drama wot thy of the name. The Missionary Brail at Conatantlwople. Elsewhere will be found a translation of the correspondence which has patsed between the English Ambassador at Constantinople and the Armenian. Patriarch, in reference to the riot that lately took place at the interment of an American Protestant in that city. The long standing animosity between the two antagonistic creeds, Mahomedanism and Chiistiauity. the representatives respectively of baibaiism and civilization, culminated to a crisis in the recent atrocities in Syria. When these two religious elements come into colli sion the interests of humanity demand that all Christendom should combine to give the su premacy to Christianity: but where lojai dis putes break out amongst Eastern Christians themselves, the intervention of foreign Powers carries us back to a period whi:h none but fanatics would wish to see recalled. The policy of the European governments at the close of the seventeenth century was mark ed by a spirit of exaggerated religious enthu siasm. and although our own century is too far advanced in civilization to tolernte its re vival, jet modern European diplomatists appa rently consider that policy too advan tageous to be relinquished. Constantino ple is the field in which they are at present prosecuting their rival interests, under cover of this pretended zeal for religion Russia through the Greeks and Armenians France through the Catholics, and Great Bri tain and the other Protestant Power* through a new community recently created by the Ameri can missionaries, of whom our own Minister has. it seems, also constituted himself the protector. The riot which recently took place over the grave of a proselyte of this sect furnished a pre text to championize Protestantism which was eagerly seized upon. The affair had been, to all appearance, arranged, when the representatives of the Protestant governments undertook to resettle it When Informed that by the treaty of Paris they were debarred from interfering? the Sultan alone having jurisdiction in the maUer? the American Minister declared himself exempt from its stipulations, the United States not hav ing been a party to it. It should be added that Mr. Williams Is stated to have assigned as a rea son for the part which he took, that the offl:iat ing clergyman at the interment was an Amerl can ; but we cannot see why that circumstance should involve diplomatic interference, since he was simply discharging a Christian duty. If the account that we have received be correct, the officiating priest was the Armenian pastor of the Protestant branch of that nationality. American citizenship had. therefore, nothing to do with the matter- the missionaries having made use of this pretext only to Intimidate the Porte through our Minister? their motive being evident in the demand which they are said to have forwarded to our government for a man of-war. Such are the facts as they have been reported to us. We trust that they have been exag gerated. and that oar Minister has not been led by the persuasions of these men to forget his position as representative of the United States, whose policy is opposed to everything like ag gr* ssion. or political or religious meddling In the affairs of other countries. When we want a territory we pay for it, as in the case of Califor nia and New Mexico, and as we shonld be glad to do for Cuba; and when we desire to secure commercial influenoe we go straight to our object, as we did in the case or Japan. How ever strong may be our religious sympathies with our fellow Christians abroad, we do not allow them to betray us into disputes which our political system has made no provision for. We are a commercial republic, and not an in tiiguing despotism. Our diplomatic text book is the ledger, and our m W-- dollars and cents. Our interest In Turkey lies la her drugs and spices, her fruits, wool and other products, for which we exchange our cot ton fabrics, rum. Yankee notions. A:.; and if we feel any particular sympathy towards the Armenians, it is because they are the Yankees of the East, as well as Christians like ourselvee. Hence it neither comports with the spirit of our constitution nor with our commercial In terests that we should interfere in the religious differences of other nationalities, and strict watch should bt kept over our diplomatic agents to prevent them being ma le the d ipes and instruments of a set of lanaiics who wo i'd embroil the world for the sake of making a single proselyte. We trust that s'epi will be taken to retnore any unfavorable impression which the cond i:t of cur representative may have created a'. Con stantinople. This should b# done promptly, as the Biltish Minister. Sir Ilenrv Lyttoa Hi'. wer. setms Inclined to withdraw from aay further action in the affair. It i?

Mr. Yancey luformed us that the Vice {'residency bad been tendered to him If be would unite in the nom.nation of Mr Douglaa.

After ?< me general conversation about tbe proapect* of Douglas and of uniting the party on bim. Mr Smders urgel Mr. Yancey to accept the oiler that bad been male him, and, aa an Inducement to aocept it, auured Mr Yancey (hat bauglai mutt die within nx aft*r Ail intufuratiin, and that then Mr. Yanc*f would have Ikt uhule matter \n Ml power.

Mr. I- .sner was preaeut I am not sure whether Mr Poah and Colonel Bubbard were present at the t ine, but 1 be.,evu they were Kespeat fully, yours, S. 3. BAXTER. Now, if this does not prov$ that "politics* make strange bed fellows," we will give it up that honest John Tyler and honest John Minor Rotts never slept under the same blanket It must also be conceded that, after resisting the tempting offer of Sander*, this terrible man Yancey is - tbe greatest Roman of them all." Btar in mind, brother Yancey, that in being elected Vice President with Douglas there is something better behind. ' Douglas must die within six months after his inauguration.'' Only think of that. Was there ever such a flattering offer made to a fire eater before? A campaign Douglas song was started some time ago, with some such chorus as thl-:? And must our Dougiaadie? And shall our Douglas die ? Then twice several hundred thousand me a Will know the reaaon why. But Sanders explains the reason. It all de pended on Yancey; but as Yancey declined, tbe bargain falls to the ground, and there is no necessity for the death of Douglas.
