THURSDAY AFTERNOON, OCTOBER L'3 Approaching Revolutions I All minds appear to have attained, with tin- | j usual unanimity, the conclusion that the era of | general revolution is about to dawn, and that I Europe is soon to witness a terrible struggle ^ between the fricuds of freedom on the one side ^ and the ruling powers and their hii-ed soldiery on the other, 1 c On the part of the republicans, such prepa ratory measures are being concerted as time and opportunity warrant, while there is little 11 doubt that the rulers of the different govern- v mcuts, from the Emperor of Russia down to the 8 President, or whatever he may be called, of 11 France, are ngreed to make common their con- , ^ tests with the people, and to oppose and crush 8 each revolutionary effort by their united power, j 8 We look with awe upon the prospect, antici- ? pating a dreadful conflict, a terrible aggregate 1 of human suffering, and the flowing of blood * like water upon the battle-field and scaffold! And what the great result will be, heaven only ^ knows! Whether it is to prove the triumph or , the prostration of civil and religious liberty ( may not be known to man until the great eon- ( summation is before us. II e are not without our apprehensions as to this result. In the right of the people of every clime to ibe enjoy- u ment of "life, liberty, and the pursuit of hap- c piness," we firmly believe; but it has not ap- t peared in the past that a condition of thraldom ti and oppression affords a good school in which 5 * to acquire the moderation and liberality that j 0 will prepare men for self-government; nor is ^ the transition through blood and carnage ; adapted to soothe the harsher asperities of our c nature. SU11, if this be the ouly avenue to freedom, j let us enter it, and rest our hopes on the sue- i j cess of a good cause and the courage and endu- j , ranee of its champions. The blasphemy of , those who claim the "divine right of kings" will surely be rebuked, and the miserable ab surdity must be swept from before the vision of men. God, and nature, and human experience ^ concurrently approve the spirit of republicanism and the representative form of government.; peace and prosperity attend those governments established iu obedience thereto; and the oc cupant of every throne is unhappy and inaecorc in his jealous regard of the growth of this spirit 1 in the bosoms of his people. These, things arc but premonitions that the day ot regal and im perial power is passing away, and that thrones , can heueeforth depend for their perpetuity upon . nought but the power of the bayonet and tl?e base servitude of parasites and sycophants. | But how shall men arise in their disunited helplessness, and oppose the organized tyranny by which they are oppressed ? How shall the lovers of pcace, whose path has ever been in the i humble and lowly pursuits of private life, arise , in the name of freedom to oppose the tutored and disciplined men of blood, who know nothing of justice or duty beyond obeying a master and * receiving for their maintenance the price of tk blood they shed ? These are fearful ?|uestions, and well may we tremble in anticipation of the realities before us; but let it be remembered that the indomit able will, the coosctoueae? of right, and the glorious end in view, have heretofore inspired such strength and peowens ne hnw hwnfaM the most magei&ceet ef tyramu m th* and borne the standard * KixrtJ aa>4 to triumphant victory It is the omfc/Ttaae ?f m**,. m <4* ?**&?-**?? nees of a dinwganiserf ow**ub, to wtmrk Wv vaguely upon the fearfai mm ?<f wimAwGh* shHI the failure to raecend ia Lmk*.

I At the present moment, however, another; course is being attempted; and meu ot wi e reputation and acknowledged iutegnty uU deavoring to unite tiie sentiments aud e menus of lbo republicans of Europe i" one gruud concerted struggle lor political emanci pation, and they are everywhere calling upon the family of man for sympathy and aid. Shall that call be made in vain? Will the people of a new born, successful, and glorious republic , turn to it a deaf oar, or disregard the cause for I which the blood of their fathers was poured out as a willing oblatiou? Never, never. In e>eiy camp there may be traitors-among the scions of gallant men there may be bastards and de generate nous?but among the true republicans of America there arc not, and cannot bo, those who would scorn, deride, and repudiate the cause ol republican freedom, or silence its cry i for sympathy and succor, whether proceeding , from Spanish or Italian dungeons, or the gory 1 fields of France, of Poland, or of Hungary! Vihoinia Elections.?An election will bo held this day for fifteen Representatives in Con gress ; for State Senators for the Amelia, Bed ford, Spotsylvania, Albemarle, Fauquier, Au gusta, Shenandoah, and Monongaheladistricts; and for Delegates to the Assembly from all the counties. This election will be held under the present constitution, and those persons only will be entitled to a vote who are qualified un der its provisions. The election will be limited to one day, unless kept open for the special j reasons now allowed bylaw. A vote will be j taken throughout the State on the question of ( ratifying or rejecting the amended constitution recommended by the late State convention. On this question the polls will be kept open three days, beginning with to-day, and all persons qualified under the txitting or amended constitu tion will be entitled to exercise the right of suffrage. If a majority of the votes taken on , these three days be for the ratification of the > new constitution, and the Governor having pro- . claimed the fact, an election will be held, throughout the State, on the 8th of December next, for a Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and Attorney General, and for members of the Senate and House of Delegates. All persons qualified according to the provisions of the new constitution, and no others, will be entitled to vote in this election; and it will vacate the seats of the members of the General Assembly elected to day.

Bailey Tyler?Fatal Accident, and Death of Washington Carr?Religious Revival .?The Elections. Lkesbuiiu, Loudoun Co., (Va.) Oct. 21. To the Editors of the American Telegraph. Gentlemen : I have painful news to impart to you. William Bailey Tyler, esq., is no more! lie tarried in town on Sunday night, on his way from Prince William couuty to Davis's Mills, in Maryland. Yesterday morning he left for the Mills, and arrived there iu the evening, and died iu about teu minutes after getting out of his buggy. This morning a distressing and fatal accident happeucd near Leesburg : W ashiugton Carr was out gunning, and having stopped at a mill near Mr. N. ?5. Bradcu's to see a friend, was stand ing with his foot on a log, when a fine team of horses passed by. He turned his head to look at them, when his foot slipped from the log, aud striking the trigger the gun went off nud the whole load passed through his head. lie died in about three hours after he was shot, having never spokeu. Mr. Carr was very rich, and is one of the best young men in this county. The M. E. Church, South, have had some very fine meetings within the last few weeks at Farewell, Belmont, the Grove, Secolin, and White Post, all withiu a few miles of this town. Some fifty or sixty converts have been made, the meetings being conducted by Rev. G. W. Carter, D. P. Wills, and Wm. Berry. The electious are at hand. Morton will beat Strother in this couuty roundly. The " Fill niorcists" don't like either of them, as they are too strongly southern. The Whigs have pro mised to give Summers 1,500 majority in Lou doun. I hear a good deal of complaint in their party, and they don't like mixed basis. Yours, Loudoun. The Aquia Cheek Affair.?A misstatement has been going the rounds of several newspa- , pcrs in relation to an affray which occurred at Aquia Creek, on Tuesday last, between J. A. Morrison and J. Cantwell. These papers have it that Morrison stabbed or cut Cautwell so that his (CuntwcH's) life was despaired of, &c. This is wrong. Morrison had no weapon at all. It was Cantwell who cut Morrison in ten different places: but, as good fortune would have it, _ none of the wounds were very serious. Mor- , rison is now at the United States Hotel, nnd j doing well uuder the care of Dr. May; and Cantwell was arrested promptly, and lodged in jail at Fredericksburg. Diplomatic.?A despatch from this city yes terday says: A communication was recently addressed to < our Government by Lord l'almerston, respect- 1 ing expeditions fitted out in the United States against Cubd, in violotion of the spirit of treaty stipulations; but it was answered in a dignified nnd truly American paper by Mr. Crittenden, Acting Secretary of State, who intimated in very plain terms, that England had better oc cupy herself with her own affairs?meaning, in downright vernacular, mind her own Yiusiness. This reply will probably prevent all European interference, or, at all events, will warn those Powers what may be expected should they ob- j trude in our concerns. The document docs Mr. Crittenden and the Administration great credit. Sir Henry L. Bulwer has retired from the , British mission at Washington, and, it is said, i is to receive a European appointment. Anticipated Removal or 0^ ice-Holders.? ; A special correspondent of the New \ ork Ilerald says: " It is believed that the personal abuse in- j dulged in by the Johnston papers in l'enusylva nia, nnd especially by the Harrisburg American, j (edited by Johnston's brother,) of Mr. Fillmore j and Mr. Webster, will have the effect of stirring up the administration to a defence of its friends in that State, and the removal of the Johnston cliijue, who now fill almost every office in it. There will be some shaking among the dry bones there before long." Wyman, the Magician and Ventniloquiit, fills Odd-Fellows' Hall nightly with delighted . spectators. South Carolina.?The defeat of the Seces- j sionists iu South Caroliua, which is complete in , every Congressional district except one, affords a striking illustration of the power of a few agitators to make n great noise, and to give to I their own clamor tho outward appearance of the expression of public opinion. The co operationists in South Carolina, it i may be urged, are in favor of secession, as well as their adversaries ; they only wish to defer it until sonic other Southern State is prepared to | seccde with tlicm. If there was no contest then in the State, avowedly on the abstract right of secession, it matters not much since the ques tion of its practical enforcement has been pretty j decidedly settled. So long as the question re mains abstract, it cannot do a great deal of harm. . . . %?? The result of tho elections in fieorRia, Mis sissippi, and Alabama, gives a fair assurance that in the determination of South Carolina not to attempt secession until some of her sister States are prepared to go with her, there is to be found a guaranty against the danger of any such attempt by her. The co-operationists have gained a victory for the Union. There is however, one thing to be especially noted; and that is, the inflexible condition upon which Union men of the South stand, requiring the faithful observance of the oompacts of the | Constitution by the people of the North.

UreuUr weight of testimony cannot be given?the first men in this country. Baltimore, Sept. 18, 1851. Gentlemen: After a full and satisfactory trial of the medicine prepared by you, and very generally known as Dr. Hampton's Vegetable Tincture, which you recom mended me to use as a relief for the debility and general prostration of my system, the result of taking three bot tles of this wonderful compound lias, I am pleased to say, resulted in a restoration of strength, a keen appetite, and an activity of body which I . have not onjoyed for a long time. So satisfied am I of the virtues of this medicine, that 1 have confidently recommended it to many of my friends and acquaintances, and am happy to learn that in a great majority of cases the most beneficial results have stamped the infallibility of the Tincture. In my own case I am satisfied that your advice to me to give-it a trial has', under the Messing of a kind Providence, resulted iu a' restoration to health, for which I am truly thankful.

MORE HOME TESTIMONY.?NONE NEED DE?PAIR TRY IT AND BE CURED.?WONDERFUL AND PER MANENT CURE OF DYSPEPSIA. . Baltimore, Sept. 13,1861. Messrs. Mortimer d Mowbray?Gentlemen: This is to certify that in the year 1843 1 was attacked with a ner vous affection, in consequence of Dyspepsia or Indiges tion, which continued some eighteen months, during which time my sufferings were intense, both of bodv aud mind. I tried every thing 1 could think or hear of, (as there was much sympathy for me,) and at length all ef forts failed to cure me. I liecame much weakened, and could walk but a very short distance at a time, and was often in the act of falling upon the pavement, (1 would stop in some door or alley to preveut it.) in conm-quence of frequent palpitations; and, from what I could learn I supposed I had disease of the heart, from frequ. lit dis-' trcssing pains about the same; as also my chest and ab domen?the latter being much distended. At this stage of my disorder 1 could neither cat, nUe/> or walk with any satisfaction to my??lf. Life seemed to be a burden to me. My feelings were gloomy beyond description. I at length heard of Dr. Hampton's Vegetable Tincture, and made trial of it. I had but taken the. first dose when 1 felt a change for the better, and hope immediately sprang up. I continued, with the use of this invaluable Tincture, to improve daily, until I bad taken the contents of three bottles, which, under Divine Providence, made a perfect cure of mo. 1 found 1 had an excellent appetite, and could partake of any food, which 1 could not do for years previously without the most distressing sensations. I now enjov uninterrupted good health, and have done so for the last six years; and would say to all afflicted as I hare been to cast aside your prejudices, and try Hamr,ton's Veaetahle Tincture. Any Information beside this but inea -re de f.r,5t'?n ?1"7 r-V111 given cheerfully for the ben. - St Of the afflicted. Yours, WILLIAM M.OLDIIAM Custom-llousc; dwelling, Fayette St., near Fremont.

Ill* case of extremely excruciating suffering, from Chronic Inflammatory Rheumatism, came immediately under my own observation, through the last four years, which I considered entirely hopeless. Through my earnest persuasion, he was induced to try yourinval uablo Tincture. I was prompted to remark at (be time. that If medicine would cure Sir. Oanlt, It certainly would " remove mountains." The know)<>dge of this miraculous cure compels me toconslder it a duty 1 owe to the afflicted (and particularly to those with complaints like his) to make generally known the healing power of this truly wonderful medicine.
