The political pot is boiling, and of the nominees of the lato inass-mesting are not happy. Contrary to the earnest ho|>e auii desire of all the peopleof this section, and doubtless of the entire State, it is now evident that the visit of the commission representing the English bondholders will not result in a final settlement of our State debt question.

From an account of the conference, published in tho J>ispotch of the 4th instant, it can bo seen that the representatives of the bondholders do not intend to accept a reasonable settlement, and complain that tiie State is " too liberal in its appropriations to t...
