THK ASPECT OF PARTIES There can be little doubt'that we are rapidly approaching another " era of good feeling" in politics. Factions seem to have worn them-i selves out with Over-excitement. At least one of the old parties has been dissolved, and is now in a transition state. The two c-pposition divisions of "Republicans" and "Americans" arc engaged in moderating or remoddling their respective platforms, in deference to public sentiment. Meanwhile, the Kansas dispute is rapidly reaching the point of settler ment. The great principle, " shall tho majority of the people of Kansas decide 1" is broadly at issue in the territory. It is no longer diSicnt to predict the result. The belligerent extremes aro dally yielding to It, a« well in the territory as in the country.

In 1834, aftor a long struggle, the British Parliament enacted that negro slavery should cease in the British dominions, and appropriated the sum of $100,000,000 to bo expended in " compensation)" among tho proprietors of estates in tho West Indies. Subsequently, the Frenob, Government also abolished slavery, but without deeming it necessary to draw 011 the public treasury, to rc-iniburse tho planters. The. result Is a matter of public notoriety. The Aftlcan race, froed fnm tho necessity of labor, yielded to their natural pre-dispositiou of inaction, we're content to idle in a state of complete laziness, and, for the most part used as much industry as would procure for them tha moro necessities of nature. If they did isfprls, it was only by fits and start*, and their ideas of compensation were so extravagant, that, 'alter repeated trials, most ot the West India proprietors found themselves uriablo to meet ^ the expense.
