New York, Peuusyl van la, New Jersey, Iowa, Michigan and Illinois, which were than repreaenled by dsmo-rats, In whole or In part, are now represented by republicans, an^ each democratic Manator, as his term bos expired, baa been oompelled to gtre way tc a republican. In the Bouse >i Representa tives every district of New Kogland and every district of several of the Western, and large majorities of other of the nou- slave bold leg Stales, formerly democratic, are now represented by republloats Scarcely a Northern State (but two or thraa at most) hss at this time either a democratic Governor or Legislature. Not only that, bat probably the municipal councils of four flfths of die cities and towns in the North are In tbe bauds of the republi cans These are beta of fearful import when It Is remember ad tbat the republioan la wholly a Northern party, with prtuciplea in direct antagonism to Southern domestic In stllntiocs and fcrms or social life, to Southern Ideas of government, and to Southern construction of the federal euro pact, and that It has acquired power solely because it faithfully represents the opinions, the fct'liois aad the dasires of the Northern people. Party sreeds heretofore have represented tbe enlightened an i well oodsI dered views of prominent aad leading statesmen upon queatlons of foreign and domeatic policy , and upon the construction of the powers or the general govern SMnt, rather than the particular opinion* of the masses of the people. Tbe republioan party, however, Is an exact aad truthful retlex of the real conviotions ou social as well as political questions, of tbe half educated, agrarian and fanatical elements of Northern society, as well as, perbape, of a large majority of tbe cultivated classes. The deadly hostility of this party to tbe South is mani fested in every oonoelvabte mode, aad Ita object seems to he w pnt that section or the country, aa far as it W possi ble, under tbe ban not only of the public opinion or this essntry, but of the civilised world. It makea use of not only the ordinary weapons of politloal warfare, but it presses into Its service all the complex ageaclea of social lire, and accomplishes Ita ends, partly by the deaecration ot the pulpit, by abase of the school and tbe lecture room, by perversion of the genial intluences of lite rature, but cbiefly by persistent misrepresentations of the press, religious and literary, as well as politloal Tbe John ?roan invasion was the legitimate result of such teach tags and althouch but few persons were directly connect ad with it, yet the admiration of '.lie Northern masses, at least outside of tbe democratic party, ror tbe cba raster of tbat deaperate outlaw, and sympathy for bis fete, and, deny It aa they will, for the enterprise In which he wss engaged, was all but universal. Tbe same feeling ot sympathy is manifested whenever a case arises undsr ttie Fugitive Slave law, and it has beoome next to Impos sible at the North for a slaveholder to'reoapture the pro perty gutranteed to blm by the constitution and tbe plain provisions or an act of Congress passed ;u fulfilment of hs requirements. Not only is this species of hostility exhibited by the ?eople, but It has found expression In tbe legislative trill, Wy the enactment. In at least nite of tbe Northern stales, ef Personal Liberty bills, so called, Indicting lines ana Imprisonment on the claimant or bis agent, and In some of these Stales disfranchising every person whatever, whether commissioner, bailiff or counstl, in any manner concealed with tlie return of a fugitive to his iwner. In Ibe executive branch of the State governments tbe same hostility is sbown by tbe refusal of tfovernirs to surren der fugitives from tbe justioe of the Souther? Slaves, If tbe crime Is alleged to have been committed against tbe Institution of slavery Two cases or this kind have oo curred within a recent period, one In Iowa and the other hi Ohio, in which tbe Governors of those Slates, u grounds manifestly frivolous and dishonest, refused to give up, on the requisition of tbe Governor of Virginia, per sons charged on adequate proof of being present, and of aiding sad participating in tbe abolition invasion of Har B'S Kerry. Hostility to tbe South has even invaded the tela! branch of ibo S*l? governments, where we would Wast have expecte 1 to have tound its imiuence. After long years of litigation, and of denying justioe by dslsy lag It. tbe Court of Appeals is the largest Stats in tbe Union has, at last, decided In the Lemmnn esse, sgalnst the right of a slaveholder with bis properly even to loach in transitu, from one slsvebolding State to ano ther, at apart in a non llavebolding Slate. There are numerous ILsUnoes of Rimilar hostile deel Ions, aguiust tbe property rigfcts of the South, cited in one of tne ni ut terly series of "Python" articles publtsbed in this Review. It would be ucjust not to mention that the democratic party hsH opposed all these things, an 1 a! 1. >ugb in Itself h Is s strong party, It is relatively weak lo m ?t or the Northern States, and has only tbe useless power to make n feeble orotest.

It scarcely mil an arvnment to show tbat the North has greater abifty ?f colonisation than the South The fact la patent, 'rum her larger eitsttnf population: fm? tbe constant acces sion w> this population by foreign emigration ; from the greater rase with which Northern property can be coo verted Into ra?b, preparatory to removal Into tho Terri tories, from tbe more migratory babita of her penile; from superior enterprise, for It is filly to deny <l; from better organized a| | ilance*. such aa tncoporated aid com paste*, for assisting emigration, but nhiefly because of tbe reluctance of Southern men to take slave proper tr wber* tt will be exposed to the contingency of oontlaca lion The operation of all theae causes combined, will Iraviiably give to tbe Nortb in a few brief years the control of eacb and all of the Territories of tne I'd loo, present and prospective. Tbe South will ihm to es |>os*<l to tbe deadly crossBre of Giugreasional ?o ere k'oIt on the one hand, and of T-rrltorlal or squat lir sovereignty on tbe other, and the rerruoriea will march, one ?IVr another, in aolemn pnvasion . au l bi admitted as frm S'au-a Into tbe I'ulon. When ail tbla has b-. n 'udy ?<xn iii|> sbed. or even before, lbs neit great measure of tbe republican or Northern party, for tbe term* are synotyms In a correct sens. ? lifl-rent names for the same tbti , ? will be to abolish slavery, first, in tbe D'strtct of Ool .mita, where Coogrem haa the oo or of joracwtlon, and then in tbe Davy yards, forts, ant arret al* of the Catted States, wherever situated. This will be followed by a prohibition to transport slavea by sea under tbe federal flag, from one port In a slavebolding State to another This will result aa a MNNMf from the doctriee which baa already been proclaimed, that slave properly can only be protected by Stat/* authority, under paailive law, and tt not evl?<ad to recognition outside of I M Haiti of the State in which tbe domicil of the owner ?f tins property may be.

There la no doubt but that acme such proTnlon wouM ht?? been Incorporated Into the constitution of the lilted Btaws, If sectional dlviaiona and collisions of Interests and 1 fe? lings bad been anticipated by the wise and good men who framed that Instrument, the beat deserving of all human political contrivances, to ?e called, lu tbe language or]x)rd Hacon, applied to another svhjeot, Umporu par tut maximut It is more than mere roily, it is positive iatuity , it is almost idiotcy, to expect thai the North would now consent to any such limitations upon her power as those implied la the plans above ladtoatel. She leeds restive under the existing restraints of the constitu tion, and certainly would rever agree to multiply them, or to give 'he South any benefits which are not already nominated in the very letter of the bond. It is possible that Northers sentiment may undergo a radical change on the subject of slavery. However im probable this may seem, examples in the history of every people of similar revolutions of opinion are cot uaoomoaoo Individual# often change their moat matured opinions; and why may not entire nations, which are but the ag grtgates of Individuals? It la a familiar fact that New gland waa once strongly opposed to a protective tarifl, and partly from motives of Interest, and partly? it would be illiberal to deny ? from honest council on, without reference to interests, the people of those States at thia time as strongly oppose the polloy of free trade. Ho, too, onttl within a comparatively recent period, there were but few persons at the South who de fended negro slavery aa right and proper in ttaelf, Inde pendent of the mode and circumstaaoes of lu introduc tion ; yet, at thin time, It would be difficult to find a Southern mas who even doubts the proposition. The most memorable example of change of g^ucal opinion, recorded in history, was, perhaps, the great Catholic rt act Ion In the sixteenth oentury.'agatnsl Protestantism, when the ancient faith, in a few years, regained all tta losses, and bis since maintained ita ground In daxony, Bohtmla, Hungary, Austria, Belgium, Poland and In parts of Switzerland. Certainly the aatl slavery seuti ment baa made no deeper Impresalon upon the people of the North than that produoed in the countries mentioned, by the great religious feud which grew out of the Refor mation. Abolition animosity in the one is not now more Intense than hostility to the Romish faith waa In the other Antagonism between Northern and Southern political creeds is not at this day more sharply defined than the cdrum OmlOflam between the rival sections of that period. II aiOerencea so fundamental were reconciled then, It may not be too much to hope that some perma nent adjustment of our sectional difflc allies may now or hereafter be made. But supposing (and It Is unspeakably painful to make such a supposition) that no change In the purposes or policy of tlie North shall take place, and that the Souin shall be driven to the last resort, we will no* proceed to otcsider, as a necessary but unpleasant part of our sub ject, some of the leading objections to a dissolution of the Union. 1. The first objection made is. that the secession of the Southern States would Inevitably produce civil war. We do not think that this would necessarily be the case, if ail the Southern or sla-eholdlrg States should secede in a body. It li not at all likely, In view of Jbe manifest and flagrant injustice of such an act, as well aa lu probable failure of suooess, that the North would attempt to co erce fifteen sovereign Stales to remain In the Union from which they had deliberately withdrawn, because. In their opinion, It had failed to administer equal and exact justice, because it bad failed to "insure domestlo tran quility," and because It had railed ?o "provide for their defenoe and to promote their welfare." If, however, seassion should produoe war, war Is not the only, nor Is It the greatest evil to which a people can be subjected. War is preferable to dishonor; it is preferable to tame sobmssion to injustice for which there is uo peace ful remedy; It Is even preferable to a per petua ? sense of Insti urlty. Besides, all na tions have had civil wars, and we have no right to ex pect exemption from the common lot. The tireeks, the Romans and the Hebrews bad civil wart; England, Franoe, Italy, Germany and Spain have not escaped tbem. Our own Revolution waa but a successful civil war. I*> seems to be, In the order of Divine Provtdenoe, that liber ty can only be won aod maintained at the costly sacrifice of human life. No great political principle has ever been achieved except by the baptism of blood. Kach suc cessive EWp In tho enfranchisement of the Roman /Mi waa gamed frc m their own countrymen at the point of the spear and the edge of the sword. They conquered , one by one, by throats, by secessions aad by rorce tg arms, their right to be elected t> each of the great dlgni ties of the commonwealth, and, at last, the right of inter marriage into tbe patrician order So, loo, by the bard fought battles of the .Social war tbe Italian confederate States gained admifslon to tbe privilege* of I'.oman cltl zeiship Magi a Charts waa wrested with the armed l and, by rebellious barons, from a reluctant king, at Runnymede. The IVlltion of Rights, Habeas Corpus, Re ilglous I.ioerty, Liberty of the I'rwr, an 1 the great prin ciples embodied In ihe Iwclaratlon of Rights and the Act of Settlement, were the direct fruits of tbo great r< bellu n and the Kugltsb revolution of 16SS Civil wars, although unquestionably evils, are cot therefore unmixed evils They are sometimes agencies In tbe bands or Pro ! vidmce for the accomplishment of important ends, and while ?e deplore tbeir oor ;rreiiOe, we mu?t often aocept tbem ts tbe appointed means of dellverauoe from wrongs, i from tvrannv and from iniustloe 1. Them At objection in reoeaalon In that, In otic of war, the South would be aubjugated. The Nirlhern peo ple are of tbe >an>e race, bare equal court*, and per ha,'* more per a lute Doe t an the Southern.

Thrae are Important ad van .atft* cer tainly, and we bare made tbe *troo?g*l atate m<bt of them On tho other hand, It muat be remembered that, If a war doea take place, H will be a war of lnvaaton and agfreatloo upon the South by the North, aad not the reverae Tbe South will be in the mi dot of her reaoorOM, and the North dliiaat frombir*.

If tbe wbole South secede, then the withdrawal of s'aves from the border oountles of the border States, with mili tary poata at proper points, will give ample security agaltiat thla kind of aggressien. 6 Another objection Is made ? that It would be Im possible to fix upoo boundaries, either by previous agreement or by treaty after war. We think 1> probable that the Ohio and the Missis sippi rivers would be the boundaries agreed upoo, together with, perhaps, the StasqiKthanna or the Poto mas. It Is asserted mat there would be a never ceasing war If tbedlflertnt franks, and If the upper water) and tbe months of these great rivers, so Imp >r taut to tbe commerce and defenoe of tbo States bordering upon them, were held by different Powers This, la our opinion, is more an apparent than a real dittloulty. It could easily be settled l>y a treaty providing for tbe free navigation of those rivers. It la always safe to tako tbe lamp of experience as a guide The Khlne, the Danube and tbe Elbe di not Sow, In their entire oourse, through the fame conntry, and tbe pisteaslon of tbe aouroes and the mouths of these gieal highways bv lif erent nations doe" Dot produce lotermlnable conflicts, nor any conflicts at all. No European wars have ever taken place on account of the navigation of these streams. Tne Amazon, also. Is owned by both Brazil and Peru, fat tbe harmony between the governments of those ouuuiries Is not disturbed by this fact. The mouth of tbe Mis sissippi wss formerly owned by Franoe and Spain, yet no threatening difficult) between these Powers and the United States ever occurred on tbat aooount. It cannot be denied that it Is a oonvenlenoe for on* nation to possess tbs whole of a great stream like the Mississippi, bnt It Is not a prime nooes alty. Nations bate got along In tbe past, and do now and can in future, get along very amicably togetber, with out such exclusive |Kwaeesion 6 That a dissolution of the Union would prostrate Southern Industry This may be so The Northern mar ket for Southern products would be destroyed, or certain ly suspended temporarily, and this would produce a stag nation of business Tbe very fsct of dlaaolutloa, of It self, would bave tbat effect In both sections; but we think it rigidly demonstrable tbat tbo ultimate result of disunion would be to give Increased activity and Impetus to ever) branch of Southern indualry In the Union, by far tbe largeat portion (probably lour tlftha) of all tbe foreign gooda oonsumed at tbe South la Imported into New York anu other Northern porta, and, after paying the customs' duty there, Is transhipped and received Into the foutbern States free ol duty In oase of separation these goods mult be brought directly to Southern ports, and there pay the Import duty. As a matter of course, In accordance with tbe laws of all commercial nations, ships owned in the Northern confederacy, lr that be the form of government adopted, would not be allowed to brine English, French or German products, or any other products except their own lntoSoulhern ports. The consumption of foreign Importations In the South for I860 is estimated at >106,000 100. If to thla bo added $240 000.000 for the consumption of Northern manufactures and the produce of tne free States of the West, the amount thus inert ased wl'l reach nearly tS60.000.000 (dee Kottell'a Southern Wealth and Northern Protlta, p. 74.) Direct importation to this extent, of Itself, while furnishing moat ample re venues, at a low tariff, to the new government, would produce a moat sensible effect In bunding up Southern cltl'S and diffusing a beneAoeot activity Into all branch** of trade. Manufactories would iben grow up, oommcrce would extend, mecbanlral arts would llouriab, and. In short, every Industrial and every profeaaional pursuit would receive a vlvi'ying impulse. A large portion of tbe commercial capital of the North Is owned by foreign ers, who, In case or a separation, would immediately transfer much of thts capitil to the South, and this could be done almtel without Interruption to their ordi nary cruise if business Northern shipowners, too, In large numbers, would remove with their property to tbe South, and a commercial marine of Imposing mag nltude would thus be created In a few years Eng land, our natural ally, would then become moro friendly still, ano, from motives of pounds, shil lings and pecoe.

An article from your correspondent bore, which showed tbe progress of this country in the arts an! sciences that are purely North American, lately gave great oflfenoe to some foglisb residents here. A ride to the country would satisfy any one that there la yet much room for such In nocent imitation. I lately saw a man ploughing with one horse bitched to a one bandied plough, the horse being ridden by a half grown girl. Further on were four men winnowing wheat by throwing It up agaii st tbe wind with shovels, while In an adjoining Held was a man harrowing ground, using a tree top (or a harrow. These and a score of similar things I saw while riding tn a diligence of tbe style of one hundred years ago, drawn by horses which drew tbe load by bands of leather tied tightly round tbelr bodies, and having no other barnesa, not even a bridle, except those which had riders. From North America there ha* come the modern omnibus to take the place of theae lumbering horse killers. There ure In tbls city agrlcultn ral stores which are selling ploughs, barrows, windmills and threshing machines in large quantities. As far as I know, no other nation sends such Implements here. The Ericsson engine prints the leading dally of tbls city, and another will soon be tn a warehouse which bales thou sands of tons annually for the United States. This para graph, If published, will doubtless offend our sensitive British brethren here, and there will be another sermon or two from tbe text, " wooden nutmegs." 1 could till this letter with proofs that "the world moves ' Two d:i>s ago, upon tbe admission of a MM ^'otto man to tbe legal profession, tbe oration sustained two pro positions: ? 1.

The award of the government loan is the subject of general conversation in the street. It is freely used by the bears and bulls on the Stock Ex change?the lormer of whom affect to believe that the smallness of the premium is an indication of de clining pubkc confidence in the permanence of the Union, while the bulls aver that the successful award of a five per oent loan, at a premium, aflbrds substantial evidence that financiers are not disturbed by the prevalent rumors of secession and civil war. The public at large seem to be some what puzzled by the award. A reference to Mr. Cobb's previous experience asa borrower may help to solve some of the doubts and uncertainties which appear so embarrassing. In August, 1858, the first half of the loan of 1858 was awarded. It was a 1 $20,000,000 loan, bearing five per cent interest, and redeemable in fifteen years; it was awarded at an average premium of 4J per cent. Money, at the ! time, was worth in Wall street about 3? per cent per annum; nor was there any prospect of an ad vance in the market, as trade was generally de pressed, the importations nominal, the export of gold small, the bank reserve unprecedentediy large, and railway credit so shattered that borrow- ! ing for railway building was out of the question. 1 Under these circumstances a government five per cent loan was a most desirable security, and the large premium obtained surprised no one. Again, [ In January, 1859, the remaining half of the loan of 1858 was awarded. It went at a premium averag ing 2j. At the time money was worth in Wall J street about 4} per cent, and there was a tendency toward a general recovery in business; , but still there was nothing more than a tendency; 1 the Imports were still small, the export* of gold light, and money consuming enterprises extremely few in number. The third experiment of the Kind has just taken place. Mr. Cobb awarded yester day ten millions of the new loan (of I860), bearing five per oent interest, at an average premium of less than 4 per cent. Money is now worth in Wall street 6 a 7 per cent per annum on call, aud though there is no immediate prospect of any vio lent change in the market, the enormously in creased production of cereals and cotton renders it pretty certain that we shall have a large trado next year, a remarkable developement of enter prise and industrial activity, and consequently + largely increased demand for money, llence, to city capitalists, the new loan was not a desirable investment ; they can do better by lending money on call in Wall street, and still better by buying lint class paper. Thia class of bidders ont of the way, the only customers upon whom the government could rely were retired rich men and families, who might wish to place a portion of their means in ao safe a security as United States fives. But, in the first place, in this country at all events, the class of people who are 1 satisfied with five per cent is becoming smaller daily, and by fixing the time for the award so sooo after ita announcement, Mr. Cobb practically ex cluded Europeans from the oompetttion; and, secondly, the loan of lst?0, unlike the loan of 1858, and all other United States loans, has only ten years to run, and is therefore uot at all a desirable security for parties who are in want of a per manent Investment. There is auother point which must be borne in mind by those who wish to understand how the award of I yesterday was made at m low a figure. There are certain seasons of the year when money is abundant, and certain other seasons when it is scarce. Every merchant knows these seasons, and that in average year* they are invariable. Now it so happens that tho two awarda of the loan 1 of lk >8 wers both made at seasons when there is sure to be plenty of money in Wall street in search of employment, while the award of yesterday came at a time when money hi Invariably in demand. In the latter part of January Wall street overflows with money, received in the shape of dividends and 1 coupons? this was the time chosen for the award of the first half of the loan of K>"; In August the banks always touch the highest point of their ex pansion for the year? this waa the time chosen for 1 the award of the second half of that loan; in Octo ber the banks are alwaya contracting, mo ney is always wanted by merchant*? and this was the time choscn for the award of the first half of the loan of l**#. There is but one other point worth noting in reference to this mstter. Some journals, we notice, remark omi nously that all the bids came from the North and none from the South, evidently intending to create the impression that the South baa lost confidence in the Union and in ita securities. Thia ia more in 1 genioue than true. In the first place, Messrs. Itiirsr* A Co., of Washington, who are veil known to be the bankers and financial agent* of the richest rum in the South, and who are the treasurers of the Itrcckinridge Executive Committee, wore by far the heaviest bidder* for the l?an, and obtained more of it than any other bidder. And, in the * cond place, no Southern capitalist of any ?.igv city would vend hm bid direct from hia bouihern home; he would employ a New York house to bid for him, and would save money by doing so. \Vh? n the award of January, 1869, was ma-lw, the liatik of Washington, Xortii Carolina, thought it would safe a brokerage by bidding dfrectJy for $SO,utO of the new loan. It did so; but, being of course isrnorant of the probabl" rate at which it would nil it, bid 104, while nearly all the New \ or k Udder* got all they wanted at 1014. South- i ein capitalist* g? nerslly are too shrewd to commit so obvious a blunder. The following was the business of Uie Sjb Trea sury to day: ? Receipt* *311 <W 24 ? h>t Its 000 00 P?)
