The rumors of an advance of our army into Vir ginia which created some excitement yesterday receive confirmation by later despatches from va rious point*. General McCltllau moved his bead quarters yesterday to the Virginia side of the Po tomac. At daylight General Plcasanlon's cavalry crossed ths river at Berlin and pushed on to | Lovettarille, in the direction of l.cesburg, which point he was supposed to have occupied immedi ately. General Burnside followed with his corps, and took op a position near Lnvettsvillc. No bat tle appcys to liava occurred. Up to last evening everything was quiet. General Plcasanton was ?aid to be within a few hours' march of the rebel Longstreet's forces. The recent rains, which ceased at ten o'clot k yesterday, have not materially interfered with the fords at either Ishepherdstown or Williamsport. At Harper's Ferry the water rose two inches, and the Shenandoah was increased four inches at the same point. The rebel cavalry, in considerable numbers, con tinue to show themselves between liartinsbnrg and Cherry Rnn, and a regiment was seen and fired at opposite Sharpsburg on Monday; but the main body of the em my st em to have fallen back beyond Winchester. It is thought that (Jen. l^ee is making as fast as possible for Gordonsvillc. despatches from Cairo, 111., tell of a desperate fight which took place at Waverley, in Tennessee, on Thursday last. It appears that a rebel force WO strong attacked a party of 200 Union troops at that place, which ia located about twenty miles southwest of Fort Ponelson. After a severe fight our men, though greatly inferior in aombers, com pletely rented the enemy, killing twenty-four and | capturing twenty-live of them. Rumors were rife | in Cairo yesterday of a fight going on at Bolivar, i ?ml other statements would eeem to confirm it, tor ft. was reported at Corinth that the rebel General Prioe was within four miles of that place the day before yesterday, with a very large reroe. General Rosecrana arrived at Cairo m rowfe to join his new command. Great activity was observed among the" rebels in the neighborhood of Helena. Vioksburg and Holly tpriags. It was said that seventy thousand men were at the latter place, under Generals Lovell and Vaa Don. A report waa prevalent in Memphis on iiuuday the* a force of a thousand rebel osvalry have stationed themselves nine miles from thsre, on the Memphis end Charleston road, and have token possession of the line, with their head quarters in the vic.iuity-of Nonconat, and is sup posed to be the adrsnce of a large retiel force, who have designs upon the city. Morgan's rebel guerillas in Kentucky have met with some end reverses of late. Colonel Edward Mi'Cook, with five hundred cavalry, left Crab Orchard on Thursday morning, and encountered several bands of thesn. and Scott's rebel cavalry at Point lick and Big Hill, killing four or five and capturing their telegraph operator, with his ap paratus; also thirty-three wagons, partly loaded. The remainder of the rebels went towards Mount Vernon. The city of Galveston, Texas, has been evacuat ed by the rebels, and was occupied by our troops >d the 6th mutant Our news from the Southern papers to-day is very important. The Richmond Di-patch lis* an official report from General Beauregard an nouncing an attack by the Union troops on the Cbarleeton and Savannah Railroad at Coosa w&tohie and Pocotaligo, on Thuraday. and wort "gallantly repulsed" by the rebel forces. The enemy, he says, had come in thirteen trans ports and gunboats. The Charleston Railroad la uninjured. The "abolition i*4.*' l?ft their dead and wounded on the field. Central Bragg has ftirnisbed an official report of lbs battle at Perryville, Ky., In which he claims a great victory, which, he says only for the ap proach of night would have been completed by driving our troops from tlieir position. The bin pat* ef the 24th says that Brsgg'e army hat re tired to s safe position .which it would be imprudent to state. General Bragg, it says, haa secured four thousand seven hundred wagons loaded with pro visions, which have been brought sway in safety w.th his army. He lost two thousand five hundred barrets of pork, which was left at Lexington, and fell into the hands of the Yankees. Great dieaetis fw tion was felt among the officers of Bragg'e army at the falling bar^, and many of them litarally wept whea the order was given ^ The conclusions to bo drawn from all the newt n our poasesalon, continues the blnpatnh, are, that Bragg hat either met tuck an overwhelming force of tike enemy, and successfully retreated be l ?re it. With large stores of provisions, or that he A ,a beea too HoiM sad made forced marches, and fought nud wearied his troop* for an object which 1? had not dariug enough toaeooespMab. Oovtrnor Vance, of North Carolina, make* a pa thetic appeal to the generosity of the people to as sist In clothing the rebel soldiers before the winter set* in. He describes them a* already suffering for" want of socks, shoes and blanket*. He calls upon the farmer* w ho are tanning hides to supply the shoes, the mothers of North Carolina to knit llo- socks, and the wealthy to give their parlor carpets for blankets. MISCELLANEOUS NEWS. rtm Vent Oni? correspondent. writing on the ^ptomber. states tiist the lata* advices from the city of Mexico show that great preparations are being made there to resist the French in truders. All the fortifications erected by Miraiuou be('n down, and more substantial ones were being substituted. Great scarcity existed ia the capital. Heveral Vera Crua houses were ahip ping goods to Tuxpan, to be forwarded thence to the otty of Mexico, expecting to realise tremen dous profits. Great complaints are made of the arbitrary and tyrannical ooaduot of the French soldiers in the interior. The Ohaasenre d'Aft-ique are always gettiaggnto collisions with th<unatiree On one occasion an officer of the Ohaseeure kicked ? railroad employe rather brutally. The case was brought to the notice of Admiral Koae. who pro mined (b pot a stop to such abases. Several changes hero been made sinoe the arrival of Jurien in the local administration of Vera Crua. The Admiral still remains on board ship. Admi Roi5# wi" return home toon. The iron plated frigate Normaodie was being repainted at baonncios. She is represented by the officers as hot and disagreeable; in fact, almost intolerable on a hot day, as she lays exposed to the full force of the sun at 8acrificios. The Prenta de la Havana of the 17th of Octo ber states that the Spanish war steamer Blasco de Oaray, on her last voyage from New Orleans brought one million of dollars in specie, which wm entrusted to the care of the captain, and which on his arrival, he deposited in several banks in Ha vana, refusing te receive the per centage usually paid by the banks for spcoic, although the pre mium in this case would have amounted to a con siderable sum. ^This money belongs to some pas sengers from New Orleans, who proposed to give ft graud banquet to the captain of the frigate. A regular meeting of the Board of Councilmen was held last evening. After transacting a small amount of routine husiuoss the ordinance adopted m the Board of Aldermen providing for the defence of the city and harbor of New York was brought up ami laid over. The ordinance providiug for the issue of half a million of dollars in small notes of the fractional parts of a dollar by the Common Council of the city of New York was, after some discussion, laid over and made the special order for next Thursday night. The Board then ad journed. In the Court of General .Sessions yesterday a young man named Jacob Wheeler was indicted for the murder of his wife, by shooting her with a pintol on the 26th of August last. The defence set ?P is that the deceased shot herself in a moment of frenay. Assistant District Attorney O. L. Stewart conducts the prosecution and Mr. William K Howe the defence. The case will be resumed thi- morning at eleven o'clock. The St. Louis Republican of the 35th instant says that Madame Anna Bishop, the vocalist, who sang in that city not long since, was burned in St Paul on Wednesday, the 15th instant, by her clothes taking fire, from the effects of which she died on the Friday following. At St. Louis yesterday the steamers H. D. Bacon, McGill, 4A. McDowell, Estelle and W H Russell, together with their cargoes, were totally destroyed by Are, involving . |09? of property estimated at 1150,000. 7 Ibeeteck market was generally better yesterday, the chici advance being in Hudson River and some of the Western sbaree.

We rather think it la the journal which gives utterance to what Is cal culated to atford such "aid and comfort to the eueiuy" that is really demoralized. General McC'lollnn himself was first.assailod by these dis union sheets, and now they assail the army itself a* worthless, and charge the government? that is, Mr. Lincoln and General McClellan? with having destroyed it. Is it not clear that these revolutionary radical journals are playing into the bands of Jeff. Pavls A Co., and are pre paring the way for peace and a final separation of the North from the South ? So far from Eu rope having any intention of interfering in our concerns, there is every reason to believe that the contrary is the case; and as for the Army of the Potomac being demoralized, it never was in such fighting order, and never more ardently desired to be ted against the foe?a wish in whioh it will be gratified at the proper time. The PmvATEKK Alabama.?It has been pretty generally understood that the English mer chants who built and fitted out the privateer 290 had done so on their own account, and had not sold or parted with their interest in the vessel to the Confederate Htates. They simply made use of Captain 8emmes and his letters of marque, expecting te realize large profits out of the venture. The statement which we pub lished yesterday, from good authority, that, in consequence of an understanding between the owners of the Alabama and bsr captain, Ameri can packots having passengers on hoard sro not to be meddled with, affords, we think, con clusive evidence that the above assumptions arb berreot. TM Two Ureal Rer?l?llMU ipprMek ???. The abolition party aaiu the endorsement of the people at the coming eleotiooa. It doee not and. dare not aak this endorsement openly, hon estly and frankly. On the contrary, it seek* to disguise and conceal this issue beneath the flimsy veils of other questions, such as those In regard to the prosecution of the war and tb* support of the President. The sophistry of this begging the real issue is apparent Ail parties agree iu desiring a vigorous prosecution of the war; and how, therefore, cau this be a question at the pollst AU parties unite in supporting the President; and how, therefore, oan this sup port be effected by the result of the election* ? Be not deceived by such weak attempts to cover up the real designs of the abolition lender*. If they can by any means trick the people iutot giving them a majority at the approaching elec tions the radical abolitionists will triumphantly interpret this victory into a cordial endorse ment of their dangerous policy. The honest voters may not and will not intend that their votes shall be thus misrepresented; but this fact will not at all affeot those arrogant radicals who. only a short time ago, impudently pre tended to be the representatives of twenty mil lions Of people. The freemen of Pennsylvania' Ohio and Indiana understood the real issue, In spite of the contemptible endeavors to obscure it, and voted aocorcUegly. Let not the freemen who vote in November be deceived and de-~ luded. Th? question for every voter to oonsider is, whether or not he thoroughly approves of the radical abolitiou polioy. Candidates, be they good, bad er indifferent, are of ne importance whatever in these elections. Great principles are at stake. The fut ure polioy of the nation is to be deoided. The constitution is to be main tained as the supreme law of the land or thrown aside as a useless bit of paper. The Union is to be restored in six months or forover lost in the tremendous convulsions of a twenty years' war. Jeff. Davis' despotism is to be condemned or justified in the minds of his oppressed sub jccts. The outraged and tyraunized people of the South are to be encouraged to return to the Union, or the door of reconciliation and reunion is to be shut and barred in their faces, nevor again to be opened until the negroes remain the only inhabitants of the seceded States. Our soldiers are to be loyally supported in their bat tles for the Union, or betrayed at the polls and forced to become assistants at slave insurrec tions and accomplices in the horrors of murders and massacres, rapes and rapine, committed by brutal and infuriated negroes upon the women and children of the South. In fine, the^antago nistic polioiee of the conservatives and the radi cals, of those who desire the Union with or without slavery, and those who desire the aboli tion of slavery with or without the Union, are now arrayed against each other in these elec tions, and the voters of the North are called upon to indicate *.' the ballot box which of the two they desire to be adopted and sustained. If every man could and would understand this fact the elections would be almost unanimously conservative. As it is, however, we hope that enough will understand it to make the con servative majorities in November almost unpre cedented. The radical abolition policy is unconstitu tional, and the radical abolition lsaders have ! repeatedly acknowledged its unconstitutionali ty. Therefore, before. this war began, they de liberately and avowedly aimed to destroy the constitution in order to destroy slavery. Therefore, also, when the first slave State seoeded,the radical abolitionists, from the plat form and in the Tribune, sympathised with the secession leaders and gloried in the ida tbata the constitution was rent m twain and the Union dissolved. Now, however, they have changed their tactics, and desire, first, to use the constitution to oall out the military power of the North, and then to throw aside the constitu tion in order to use that military power to abolish slavery. But this making use of the constitution in order to abuse it is a most trans parent trick. If the constitution bo still in J force, then we must abide by its provisions and I reject the abelltlon policy. If, on the other hand, the abolition dogma that this rebellion has superseded the constitution be correot, then we are without a government, without n national existeace, without any but State and local laws, and in a condition of deplorable anareby; and the President has no right to call for troops, to command our armiss, or to exorcise any ot the prerogatives granted by, dependent upon and abrogated with the constitution. Thus, whether or not the constitution still remains our su preme law, the doctrines of the abolitionists are absurd. But they are more than absurd? they are destructive both to the North aad the South. They will iuvolve us iu a war of at least twenty years' duration, conducted at an enormous expense and with a terrible loss of life, and cuding, not in reunion, but In the inau guration of a aeries of insane experiments, on a gigautic scale, in regard to amalgamation and a mulatto republic. At the South they wiU justify every statement made by Jeff. Davis, and rivet more strongly the chains by which he binds the masses of the people to his throne aud drags them to deduction. Just so long as we maintain the Union aud the constitution we have a good oause and a lair prospect of success. The moment we supersede the constitu tion and transform the Uuion inte an abolition society our cause is lost, and we have no right to compel the South to return to a govern meat, which has really become what they imagined it to be when they rebelled. Push forward our armies to destroy the mili tary power by which Jeff. Davis enthralls the Southern people. Follow up our bayonets by our ballots, and show these people that we come to deliver and not to destroy them While we show them the power ot the Union by our conservative armies, let us nhow them also, by our conservative votes, that the Union is, as it over was, the only guanntee of their constilutienal rights. Then bullets and ballots, working to gether. will inaugurate a revolution at the South close upon the heels of the political revolution ut the North. Then, la six month# from November, we shall see the Southern peo ple punish the perfidy of their Infernal sedu cer* by hanging them in every seceded State ami voluntarily returning to the Union. The luarful sufferings of the rebel murses have only been borne because they feared the greater sufferings of abolition rule. Convince them that these fears are groundless, aad they will eadure no longer. A conservative triumph will kill Jeff. Dafls and end the rebellion. An aboli tion triumph will kill the nation to end negro slavery. Lot the people decide whether Jeff, Davis or 'ho uatlvo "kali Ow Army of Mo Mww ItfM d m A4tom?. ? Our latest drioie frees WnMnytoB Ml froa Harper's Ferry Indicate aa early advaaoo upon the rebel army of Virginia. The main body of thai-army is still bettered to be in the neigh borhood of Win chaster, although it appears that, byeereral roads, General Lee has been actually preparing for a retreat back to Oor donaville. We dare say, however, that his movements and designs are understood at Har per's Ferry and at Washington, and that, al though he may be permitted to cross orer from the Shenandoah valley to the'eastern side of the Blue Ridge without a battle, he will be inter cepted and compelled to tight somewhere on the way to Richmond. We anticipate, upon the approach of our forces, the retreat of Lee out of the Shenandoah valley by the nearest rotds for Riohmond, with the idea of drawing General MoClellan after him iuto an exhausted country so far that he may be out off from his supplies, and be out up in detail. But we do not imagine that General McClellan will be ied astray upon any suoh wild goose cbase as this, but that with the rebel forces, bag and baggage, removed' from the rear of Washington, he will adopt one of several other plans for outting them off froih the rebel capita!. .With the recoat chilling rains upon-his shoe less and half naked troops< Lee cannot- remain among the sold mountains of Northern Vir ginia. He will be oorapeHed to move south ward to get into a more genial climate, and with his removal all our forces, from Williams port to Washington, may be put in motion against him. In the West it is probable that the late rains will uot only very much facilitate our army transportation on the Ohio and up the Great Kanawha to the salt works of Charles ton, but also oa the Cumberland and Tennessee rivers. With anything of a rise in these two streams, the army of Bragg will soon be cleared out of Tennessee, and all the remaining frag ments of the rebel forces of Price, Lovell and Van Born from Northern Mississippi and Ala' bama. But the paramount object, desire and expectation of our loyal pct.ple is a decisive campaign in Virgiuia, before the rains, snows frosts, thaws and mud of the winter in that rogion have rendered ull military operations there impracticable till the return of spring We are gratified to bear that our Army of the Potomac is beginning to show some signs of an advance, and it is to be hoped that the govern ment at Washington and all coucerned will re gard an immediate forward movement of that army as superior to all other questiou3 and movements of the day. Thk Tribune's Arithmktio ok thi: Kukv ttonh.?Horace Greeley's education in arithme tic and mathematics must have been sadly ne fleeted, when be attempts to palm off upon the public such fallacious figures as he exhibited yesterday to account for the republican defeat in Pennsylvania by the alleged fact that the re publicans have gone to the war, while the de mocrats have remained at home. The argu ment is based on the fact that the democratic vote has only fallen off very little, while the re publican vote has fallen off to a great extent. Now it does not follow that those who have fallen off have gone to the war. It is true that some of them have gone; but it is more proba ble that the majority have joined the democratic ranks, and have supplied the place of the far more numerous voters who have enlisted in the army of the Union from the conservative masses. It is evident that, as a general rate, the fighting element is the democracy. The re publicans, radicals and abolitionists rarely fight. They do not believe in fighting them selvee, bnt are very anxious to get o$er men to flgjit for them. Greeley not loo# since ad mitted that his "909,000" abolitionists " never smelled battle," and they have not yet come up to the scratch* Consequently their presence in the field could not have affected the elections. Nor have we Afferd anything of Gov. Andrew's myriads who were to swarm the roads from Massachusetts If only " the chorus of liberty" were once raised. The chorus of liberty meant by Greeley and Andrew is the emancipation proclamation. Before the elections Greeley denounced the army as a democratic, pro slavery army. Now, for a different purpose, he oleims that it is republican. Savvm Qci Pair.?The Richmond journal-* are devoting ? good deftl or space to the discussion of the question as to whftt terms the South would accept as the basis of a settlement with the North. That is a good sigu; for it shows that rbey are beg lining to realise tije peceseity of speedily coming to some conclusionTipofl the subject. A better symptom still is the fact (stated by the Richmond Enqubrtr of the 2:?d. that large numbers of persons, principally aliens, are seeking aud obtaining permission to leave the douthem confederacy. Can there be a clearer proof I hat the cau*e of the South i? despaired of by Miose baring opportunities of judging of its mourres, and that they Hie de serting its failing fortunes to avoid being in volved iu the punishment and ruin which thur expect will tali upon ail who have cast tneir lot with it? The statement of General Edwin Price, son of the r?bol Major General Price, who lias just taken the oath of allegiance to the United States government, that the rebellion is nearly broken, and that the Confederate army can exist bat a short time longer, receives strong confirmation from the above facts. It therefore only requires the campaign to be vigorously pushed forward by land and water to insure the realization of our assertion that the war can be brought to a close by the first of the new year. A PwriNcrioN with a Dn kxrknck. -.Some of the English papers assert that the "North ia no longer attempting the subjugation of the South, but is merely fighting for a boundary. Wo perfectly agree with the English papers, but differ with them as to what that boundary is They believe that we are fighting only for the boundary of the Potomac aad the Ohio, where as we really insist upon aad are determined to possess the boundary of the Gulf of Mexico and the Rio Grande. This war is no fifty-four forty matter. We will never compromise on this boundary question Saucic for thi Goose ano Gamhk,?Tbe IVi frune'eonly argument against Seymour is that he will probably receive the votes of a few seces sion sympathisers If a candidate is to be attacked because a lew bogus patriots intend to vote for him, oertaialy Wadsworth cannot escape for be Is supported by all tbe oontraot swindlers, Ave I per cent brokers, stay at borne soldiers, Ores- j leyttes and free nlggere of tbo republican party.

If this news sheuld turn out not to be true hereafter, it is no proof that it was not true when it was first announced If the convention should not be held, it will only bo because the premature publication of the pro. gramme shall have disconcerted the plans of the conspirators. Their objects at Providence and Altoona, and the objects whioh they contem plate at Washington, are the same. Their de sigu is to put Mr. Lincoln under their teet, to virtually and practically nullify the federal authority, and to act as independently as the Southern rebels. The effect of this movement on the coming elections cannot fail to be very great. The radical spirit of disloyalty, or conditional loyal ty (which amounts te the same thing), can ?o longer be endured by the people, and they will show their indignation against it In a very de cisive tvay at the ballot bo*. The course of the rebels at the South and the disunion. nulli tiers at the North is substantially and practi cally the same. The diflbrence is not in prin ciple, but only in degree The notion of "the Governors will increase the conservative ma jorities everywhere, and perfect the popular revolution inaugurated by the misconduct and fail u re of the republican party. Out of evil comes good. The law of com pensation pervades the world. The defeat of the republicans will not injure the nation. Though they have the political power in their hands, and their overthrow might saem at first sight to be injurious, their discomfiture will prepare the way for more vigorous and ener getic action. It will unite and consolidate the fighting and governing element oftiio North. The radicals have equally failed to g??vern and to fight. The conservative element will furnish the ruling and the combative qualities. From narrow-minded fanaticism nothing large or great can spring. From conservatism must 1 come the salvation of the country. When the insurgent chiefs find that the radicals and abo | litionisls are defeated in the coming elections, as they have been in the contests of this month, i their hearts will quail within tbetn; for they | know what, awaits themselves. Tho triumph j of conservatism at the North is but the pre. cursor of the conservative reaction at the South. As the Northern population become discon tented with the conduct of the war and with ' the results of the financial disturbances caused by Secretary Chase, so will the Southern popu lation become awakened to the reality of their situation. The great conservative masses. North and South, have been drawn iuto the vortex, of civil war by the extreme factions of both sections, and the people of the South will find it to be their interest to put down the faction in their section who have usurped the government, just as the. people of the North are rising in their majesty to crush the party who ?have temporarily ob tained power under false pretences, and b?*e brought the Northern Suites to the verge 0f de struction. Instead of carrying on the war for the Union with vigor and energy, the republicans have obstructed and paralyzed it by their dishonest | schemes to pervert it to a war for the abolition of slavery. Tbe elections are the denunciation of tbe popular wrath against tbein, and if they will not heed this manifestation let them look ! out for more terrible consequence* They "might as well attempt to arrast the progress of the flewiog tide of the ocean as to stop the reva. lution which has now set in. Their wisdom will be to submit with a good grace to what is inevitable. Tbe completion of the Northern revolution at tbe polls will be tbe signal lor a similar revolution > at the Seutb, whioh will overthrow Jeff. Davis k Co. The people of the South will sooa understand that they have bees deceived by politicians and demagogues, and have expended their blood and treasure in vain. The restore, tion of amicable relations will follow, and the authors of tbe disruption of tbe Union will meet with the i sward* due to their crimes. Taa Naa Rkbki. Hub os Otr CovurRcur.
