PARTY NOMINATIONS The last Sunday papers contained the usual comments upon party nominations. Some of their views are just and opportune. The discussion of such topics can scarcely bo too stringent and searching. - Let the people have light.: Let tho facts be known, so that no convention, of any party, will-dare to place before the community any bnt its best, most competent, and most trust-worthy, men.. We have entire respect for the decision of a nominating convention. "Wo believe every party man in bound by tho fairly expressed decree of thu delegates, primarily chosen, of his organization, and We regard rebellion against their decision as onritled to reprobation. But there are precedentdutieSjObtiguUonii to advance of conventions, which demand attention, and which , if neglected, will produce a harvest of defeats. We must recollect that while devotion to party usages is an essential, in. all political organizations, yet that even this fidelity will crow weak belore the no...

Wasuinqtom, August 16,1857. Thero will be two now States asking for admission into tho Union at the next session of Congress-Minnesota and Kansas. Both will, in my opinion, be free States. Tho letter of General Atchi-8on to the Charleston Mercury was not neoepsnry to convince the oonntry that Kansas would not be a slave State. You havo vory properly re-called the oandid prophecies of much more moderate and far-seeing Southern men, that this was certain. Those true conservatives of of the South will not complain of this result. Destiny, nnd not demagoguory, has done the work. Climate and tho courao of emigration, and the interests of men, havo done it. The Now Orleans Delta and tho Charleston Mercitry cannot deduce, from a state of facts like this, an appeal, entitled to tho appellation of an argument, against the friends of the Constitution in the free States. Thoy may uso strong language, and attempt to stimulate tho local passions, and, for a while, thoy may euccocd, but in th...

Goodwood Cup. The Morning Star (London paper) of August 4, says: "The Goodwood Cup has now been carriod off four times by our ttllies—allies In sport as well as in war. The American venturo was not discouraging, and it was attended by oircunistimces which will doubtless induoo ' Mr. Ten Broeok| and Ills countrymen to prolong their stny amongst English sportsmen. Hoth the American horses that run for the Qoodwood Cup ovidently lacked an English preparation. Pryor, in particular, seemed fat; and, after tho impationco which ho displayed before tho start, people wero surprised to Roe him figure so prominently In tho race. I havo no hesitation In stating, however, that If the American horses had icon ridden by English jookeys, they would have been much, nearer the winner at tho finish. Indeedat tho distance, Prioress looked quite formidable, and her Bucccsa appeared to bu within tho rango of possibility. Her rider, howover, sat bolt upright upon hor and held her in a manner which wou...

SOUND ADVICE. Saturday's Norlh American, speaking of Kansas, and of the late harmless opinion of Judge Cato, of . that Territory, speaks to its friends in Kansas as follows: " In consequence of the opinion given by Judgo Cato, and tho obvious intention of thtf party having possession of tho election officersit is now snitt that tho freo State men will refuse to voto. Wo trust that this may not provo true The taxes in dispute arc scarcely worth the sacrifice meditated to avoid their payment. It is high time that the do-notliing policy was abandoned in Kansas, and that tho majority, acknowledged on all hands to bo overwhelming in favor of a free Stato, should assert its powor in the lecritiinuto way of nn elcotoral triumph at tho polls. There is good sense in this counsel. If there is a majority in favor of a free State, let it be shown. Before the decision of a legal majority of citizens, inhabitants of tho Territory, and submitting to the laws of the legally chosen Legislature, al...

The Delaware Ca nal Break. The Trenton State Gazette learns the break in the Delaware canal, below Now Hope, will require a week or ten days to repair. A temporary dam lias been thrown across the canal below the outlet lock, which will enable transporters to reach Philadelphia or New York by tho Delaware and Karitan Canal; but it is probable that the break will cause a serious interruption to the coal transportation. A large number of boats are already gathered in the dam at Easton, and will, perhaps, lio up there until the repairs are completed and the entire navigation of the canal is resumed. Southern Commercial Convention.—The convention met at Knoxvillc, Tennessee, on Monday. Eight hundred delegates were pro. sent. Mr. DeBow, of Louisiana, was chosen president of the Convention, Vice presidents were chosen from Tennessee, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Alabama.

Tho statement in the different ^ papers, th»t Mr, Btfoha.vak does not intend to make Any further diplomatic appointments until the Senate U In Eefmlon, it1 h*vo every reason for believing, without foundation, inasmuch as he has already named a number of gentlemen, )n accordance with custom, without anraltlDg for the assembling of CongreBS.
