PARIS, Constitutwnnel publishes an article signed by Mr. Grandguillot, of which the following is a summary: "Europe will, like France, answer by the most energetic adhesion to the noble initiative of the Em- peror. Nobody will be astonished to learn that French troops will very soon be embarked, in or- der to carry assistance to the Christians in the East, and thus to support a cause which is common to all the interests of Europe. The peaceful and lawful existence of the Chris- tians in the East has been guaranteed by the Pow- ers who signed the treaties of I85S. The initiative which wo are taking in, therefore, but faithful of our engagements.' Tho Sultan well understood this when he address- ed his letter to the Emperor. Unhappily, is is to be feared that Turkey is incapable of arresting the massacre of the Christians, and it is impossible to allow the hazards of an uncertain repression. The defection of tho Turkish troops is also Tho destinies of the inhabitants are placed under the double safeguard of tlic treaties and of the hon- or of France. It is evidently in concert with the Powers and with the Sultan, that France is about to act in Syria. The Eastern question has for a, long while been considered as one 'of those which may most disturb tho world. The best means for preventing grave complications to resolve, by adocisiveand sincere course of action from tho beginning, those difficul- ties which want of energy and frankness might per- haps render irremediable."

Tin: CONVENTIONS assembling of tho two Breekinndge Conventions to-morrow, at Syracuse, will be initiatory proceedings in Ihe polit- ical campaign in this State. Upon their action will in no small degree depend the result of tho Presiden- tial Election. Now York is the battle-field, and upon Iho result in this State way, in fact we think will, depend the question whether we are lo have a Re- publican or sectional or a national administration of trie government, during the next four years. Doubtless the two Conventions to assemble to morrow, will be merged into one, arid thus form a single of the friends of Mr. Breckin- ridge in this Slate. Wo trust- their action will be such as to promote the success of the Brockinridge and Lane ticket in November. There is room for much differences of opinion respecting the proper course to pursue, but if moderate counsels and good judgment shall be in tho ascendant, it is not too much to hope for such action us shi.ll leave the way open for accommodation, and enable tho anti-Lin- coln men of tho State to co-operate on an Electoral ticket, We know that the sentiment of the State demands united action, and that the warmest midmost niucert friends nf Jlr. Bi'fckinr'ulge throughout the Union Hint llicir trifndx here shall adopt welt course consistent witJi limor, an will deprive the ItepuUi erins of the Electoral tote of New Yorl: Lot no the Conventions now about to assemble disappoin this reasonable just demand upon Iho patriotism and good sense of the Breckinridgi men of New York. The cause in ichidi they are en littedean only succeed carrying this State liy co operation' icilh all the opponents of Lincoln. Lc these two facts be borne in mind by every delegati to Syracuse, and let riot the doings of tho Conven tion to-morrow bo referred to as a bar to such united action. Different views will of course be entertained, ast hope not favor the plan of State and electoral tickets throughout, and absolute ly, without offering any mode of co-operating witl tho Convention to assemble on the 13th inst. Thi is the extreme side, and moots a defiant respons fiom a class of tho Douglas men, just as vindictiv and bitter as those on tho Brockinridge side, wh advocate this policy. Another plan is to adjoin1! tho. Convention to the 15th or a subsequent day, without final action, thus giving the other Conven- tion an opportunity to act upon such propositions as may be submitted for joint support. There are some who favor tho nomination of a full ticket for State officers and electors, and the appointment of a Committee with power to withdraw a portion there- of, on the .signification, by tho other Convention, of a willingness to fill up the ticket, and ui.tko a com- mon effort against Republicanism. And still others there are, who uonld be willing to on trust the whole subject to a judicious Committee, as has been done by tho old Y. Journal of Commerce, TIME ISJMONEY. E.

SOUTHBRSUKS IN BosTos, Our hotel registers the past few weeks show a list of names if any- thing, more than usual at this season, and onr mer- chants here, who have been stoking southern trade, are shipping a large quantity of goods mostly, however, to the larger markets South. The steamer Joseph 'Whitney tailed Friday with a Crowded freight. A full Electoral ticket for Douglas and Johnson has been formed in Tennessee. W. H. Polk and 'H. M. Waterson have been chosen Electors for the State at large. Neaily a hundred years ago, Dr. Lind suggested to Captain Kennedy that thirst might be quenched at se.'i by dipping the clothing into salt water and putting'it on without wringing, Subsequently, the captain, on being cast away, had an opportunity of making the experiment. With great difficulty he succeeded in persuading a part of the men to follow his example, and they all survived, while the men who refused, and drank salt water, became delirious and died. Tn addition to putting on the clothes, while wet, night and morning, they may me wetted while on, two or three times during the day. Capt. K. goes on to say "After these operations we uni- formly found that the violent drought went off, and the parched tongue was cured in a few minutes after bathing and washing our clothes, while we found ourselves as much refreshed as if we had received some actual nourishment." The bare possibility of the truth of the statement makes it a humanity for any paper to give it a wide publicity, since there are not many readers in a hundred who may not go to seii and get Chronicle and Seiitinel. A YOUNG WHEAT committee on farms of the State Agricultural Society of Wiscon- sin have made a careful estimate, from which they set down the wheat crop of Wisconsin for the year 1860 nt ticenty-two Millions of bushels. This will probably exceed the crop of any ojthcr State in the Union. In 1850, according to the census, the heav- iest wheat-growing State was Pennsylvania, whose crop amounted to bushels. The crop of Wisconsin in that year was bushels. For a comparatively young State, the crop estimated for the present year is amazing. IN SPA PERI A. VVAHDIJIl. VM. BAHKETT.
