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
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

At the present moment, however, another;
course is being attempted; and meu ot wi e

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.
Mr. Weusteu.?This great statesman was
enthusiastically received at Miss Hayes's con
cert, at Boston, on Tuesday night. He on the j
same night was serenaded by Bond's Cornet j
Baud. He appeared at the window, and was ,
received with tremendous cheering, and ad
dressed the multitude substantially as follows:
"Friends?1 am greatly honored by this call,
I assure you. Nothing is sweeter than the con
rratulatiou of friends, such as has now been
;iven me. Sleep is sweet, but 1 am always
'lad to be waked up on such occasions, and at
uch times. Best assured, fellow citizens, I aui
leeply thankful lor this kind remembrance. I (
rish you all a good night.

Death of Mm. 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
" 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 .
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.

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.
Respectfully, JOS. K. STAPLETON,

Messrs. Mortimer A Mowbray, Baltimore, Md.
. 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

Baltimore, Sep. 18,1851.
Messrs. Mortimer <t Mowbray?Gentlemen : The cure of
Mr. Robert Oault, by the use of three liottjps or Hamp
tons Vegetable Tincture, as per his certificate, i?, I think,
almost unpreccdcnU-d. 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. Yours, most respectfully,
187 Baltimore street.
