The people of the United States, not being sufficiently drunk with military excitement, are preparing to work themselves up into a grand furore over the election of a President. The present incumbent is desirous of re-election, if indeed it can be called a re-election, seeing he has never yet enjoyed the coveted felicity of being President of what was once the United States, but which ceased to be the United States when he assumed the reins of power. We are not at all surprised that Mr. Seward insists on Mr. Lincoln holding his place till all the States over which he was chosen to preside, acknowledge his benignant away. If he holds on till that period he will have a longer reign than all the monarchs of all time together.--It is natural that he should desire some compensation for being kept out of his own, the whole term for which he was originally elected. What a sorry time he has had of it! The votes of the Black Republicans could make him President of the United States, b

He wished farther to have a copy of any papers relative to Yankee threats of violence in British waters, a dispatch from Seward to Adams having been published in Washington, in which the former threatened to follow the Alabama and Florida into British waters, and destroy them there. Russe the capture of certain English vessels by the Yankees, and the murder of an English sailor by a Yankee lieutenant. Russell, it seems, had modestly insinuated to Seward that the murder ought to be punished, but did not insist lest he might give offence to the Yankees.

In the exercise of a discretion which is also somewhat peculiar, re is a little mystery about the matter in regard to the subsequent dispatch from Mr. Adams to Mr. Seward, to which Lord Derby adverted; but in whatever manner the American Minister here and the Ameriurs. We can understand the pressure of political necessity, and we know that greater men than Mr. Seward have been constrained to acknowledge the force of circumstances.--Still, it is very much to beshould have been made public by the Government whose Minister refrained from presenting it.

State Convention which met at Louisville the other, day closed its proceedings with a set of anti Lincoln resolutions. Wendell Phillips and his Abolition pioneers, after turning and twisting Old Abe in every possible way, give him up in despair as a trimmer, a temporizer, a blunderer, and a bad bargain. Greeley and the New York radical entertain the same ideas; but Greeley desires to shelve Old Abe as quietly as possible, so as not to disturb the peace of the happy family. But only let Mr. Seward and his good man Friday, Thurlow Weed, try the experiment of a set of Lincoln nominating resolutions in the New York Legislature, and they will see the fur fly. Senator Pomeroy thus speaks with the leading abolition radicals, and with New York at his back, in denouncing the shortcomings of Old Abe, and in pronouncing against him as a candidate for another term. President Lincoln has had some show of strength from various State Legislatures; but while New York and Ohio stand dead again
