Dembcrat , ic Victory. . - The Election in Virginia too'li place last , -Thursday, aad so far aa We can at present learn, Wise the Democratic candidate for Governor, ia chosen Over Flour set the K. N. candidate, by about 6 ve thousand ma jority. Bacoce, Millsos. Caskie, Good, Powell, Smith, and Faclkner (Demo crats) are elected to Congress. Still it is Impossible to determined with any degree of accuracy, the majorities for any of the can didates at present. Virginia is a large State. Many of the counties aro -separated from -each other by mountainous Midges without I any communication by raiiroaa or teiegrapn, "and it will take several days to bring all the returns together and foot up the actual results. We confess that we are eomfiwhat sur prised at the election ol Wise, to 'he Gov ernorship' of the old commonwealth. We had anticipated that Know Nothtiigism would sweep every State in the Unitftl, at the Jirst general election after its introduc turn. We never dreamed that it could ex ist in the country a great -while, but it is dying out sooner even, than we expected. According, to present prospects, it is des tined in the course of a few months to be numbered among the "things that were." The election of Wise is a brilliant triumph and will inspire new zeal and determina tion ia the hearts of the Democracy all over the Uuion. i XVe nave frequently' tlluS'ed to the des- ft-tie character of the Know Nothing creed, and called attention to the fact, that ia an, the conventions held by that order both Stats and natloaa), the subject of slavery ia ithet-ortrf, or snti-alavery sentiments condemned. At s convention held in Cali fornia a short time aince, a part of the pro ceeding! of which, we published is tbe Sen tinel, strong ground was taEen'h favor of the "peculiar institution." .So it is in all parts of the South. Know Nothingism is but an other-name 'far tyranny In its most revolting atftl degrading form tyranny not only over the body, but over the mind, the heart aad the conscience. We wish to ca"W attention to a few facts which show most clearly the ground occupied by the Order on the ques tion. The Kaaw tVothine State council of Georgia, haa promulgated the following ar tide Of faith: "Resolved, That slavery and alave'institu tions are protected by the eonstilutionofthe United States, and the obligation to main tain them ia not sectidnel, but national; that the right to establish them in the orgsniza tion of State governments belongs to the citizens; and that Congress has no constitu tional power to intervene, by excluding a new State applying for aiimissiun into the Union, upon the ground that the constitution of such State recognizes siuvery." The "American Organ" ut Washington which ia the leading and most influential Know Nothing 'Journal in the union, and is supposed 'to "speak by authority of these secret councils, while commenting upon theTecent Kansas fraud has the following, which we commend to the careful perusal of our reader: "'Governor Reeder "is "to be sent back anions the 'bdrder rumans' (as ttiey are stvled by himself,) and told by the presi dent that 'not for a single (noment has Gov srnor Reeder been diverted fiom the straight forward path of duty!' That the 'ruffians (and not Gov. Reeder) are wrong that they have been ruffianly enough to make a 'pre text' of the conduct of. the Anti-Slavery is regarded by socio as a State entitled to unusual praise fer the soperlority ol her In telligence, refinement and liberality. It haa become a habit with a portion of the Amer ican people to laud that venerable common wealth, and to set forth her laws, institu tions and usages as not merely the evidences but the sctual results of progress. Recent events, however, have awakened the public mind in a degree to a sense of the absolute ridiculousness of irraBy of her loftiest preten- os. Too-following from theNew Yorl Herald is a truthful statement of some of the facts which stand on the record as evidences of the folly and vanity of that state.'. Her con duct will serve better aa a warning thai as an example: Massachusetts IIuMAHiTr Massachu setts Morality A I'aIb or Blue Light SrECTlCLEs. Under the oid blue laws of Massachusetts it was a penal offense to give shelter to a houseless Quaker, and witches were devoutly executed as burnt offerings to bieotry the most intense, and to supersti- tion the most atrocious, in tnese lauer days, however, after two hundred years ol active purincutionamrrelorm,lLlassaciiu8eii8 claims to have risen to the rank of the most enlightened, moral, religious, and liberty loving State in the Union. Her capital is the "Athens of America; she plumes her self upon her colleges, her common schools, her churches, tier liquor laws, ana ner oe nevolent institutions. Now for the fruits of this boasted enlightenment and civilization. First we give a specimen ot Massachusetts humanity. . We copy lront one oi our ex changes: . ' "Mary Williams and her infant daughter, the latter born iu Massachusetts, were sent to 'EUrope on Monday, from the town of Menson, Mass., for the crime of being too poor to live in that commonwealth. 1 he woman had come away from Ireland, be cause she was too poor to live there. Ac cording to these two facts, the poor creature has no right to live at all. Massachusetts about a year ago, was in a terrible feruieut because the law sent Burns duck io Virgin ia. The Boston Advertiser says "The treasury of the United States bore the expense ot the rendition ot Antuuny men to do Wrong themselves that 'Gover-i Burns. The treasury of Massachusetts paid Ucfortris iti England. Among the bills now pending in the Brit ish Parliament are the following: '1. The National Education (England) Three Bills one by Sir J. Packingtou, another by Lord John Russell, a third by Milner Gibson." "2. Natisnal Education for Scotland, by the Lord Advocate." . "3. A bill for the repeal of the Newepa . per Stamp Tax." "4. A bill for the reform of Cambridge University." , . "5. A bill for the Abolition of Ecclesias tical Courts, (England and Ireland.") "6. A bill for the Abolition of Church Rates, by Sir W. Clay." "7. A bill to Legalize Marriage with a deceased wife's sister or niece." ""8. A bill to increase the powers of Char itable Trusts Commission. (A commission estaolished to superintend the management of public charities.") The principle of all these bills, if carried out, will have a tendency to liberalize the character of the English government, and abolish caste In English society. The peo- hl of tlmt nntion are crowing more and r w more restless every day. The disasters at tending the campaign in the Crimea, not only the loss of life and property, but the humiliating condition of the British forces, has done much to impress on the minds of that .people, the conviction that there is some radical defect in the constitution of their government and society. There are strong men and brave hearts enough among the yeomanry of England to defend her rights and preserve her honor in a controversy with any power of Europe. But these men must have leaders. Their general? must be men ef talent, energy and courage. Their title to command must be founded upon worth, made evident by years of meritorious toil and patriotic service. Of all the despicable doctrines that ever found a recognition .among men or governments, none is more , detestable than that which allows the mere accident of birth to determine a man's right to govern or command. It is not only wrong in itself but leads to countless evils wherever it exists. To this evil more than any othflrj may be attributed the misfortunes ol the English army. England Is to day, without a general worthy of the name. She never can achieve any honorable success until these birth-titled dignitaries are brought down, and men permitted to rise up from the ranks of the people to take their places. . Present indications go to show that this state of affairs, will tit duo time, be brought about. The British nation is learning the fact, that "Beggars may b fit for princes, ,.'.. . f duces fit for something less." nor Keeder has maintained in a aiutuoe which General Pierce 'expected' him 'to maintain,' and that he goes back to discour aee every movement that will disturb the public mind!' "Now, tbe president ana v;oi. rorney both know full well, that Governor Reed er a reappearance in Kansas will be the sig nal for civil war. We do not believe that there will be one moment's peace in Kan sas if he returns. Right or wrong, (and we say not which,) a provisional government will spring up as suddenly into existence in Kansas as it did in Paris; the people of Kan sas will not allow General -Pierce to force Anti-fjlaveryism, Or any Anti-Slavery Gov ernor upon them, and he ought to know it, atrd doubtless does know it. The country will bear us witness that we have over again made this declaration, that the Forney and the Pierce men were not wor thy of Southern confidence, but we did not expect so soon a formal acknowledgement of this truth. We supposed that it would be postponed till after the Virginia elec tion. The result in Virginia, however, is now so Bure to be adverse to the views of the Administration, and ' "so clearly see it, that it ia not deemed important to pnt off what they cannot evade; end they have now thrown off the mask, and declared for Gov ernor Reeder and against the South-" The American Crusader published at Boston, holds the same sentiments. This is National Know Nothingism. It would not only support slavery where it already ex ists, but It would extend it over a still lar ger area of territory. It would earry it in- to Kansas: it would make the institution national, in every form and feature But it is claimed that several Know Nothing councils of the North have anti-slavery resolutions. This is true in some instances; and when we fully under stand their motives, for so doing their aa tion is rendered more despicable still. They are willing to act with the national party on a pr-oslavery platform-; bnt for the purpose of carrying local elections, they are antr-slaVery in Bentiment. The organ ization is controlled by corrupt, baa men who are determined to acquire power at whatever sacrifice of principle. They are therefore "all thing to all men." Their order accommodates itself to all circum stances and all shades of sectional preju dice and opinion. Its foundations are laid in fraud and corruption, and the elements of its power are the vilest passions and prejudices of the people. tWer fteinsv. it The way it Is Working-. The Know Nothings carried the Town shfp of Athens in Harrison county, last ' April, by 40 majority. ' At an election for ' Justice of the .Peace in the same Township on the 15th inst., the Democrats elected "their candidate George Cook, by 13 major itr. So warm was the contest that there . t wer only 6 votes less polled, says the ' Cadiz Sentind, than at theelection in April VThis is another evidence pf the Democratic . spirit arousing all over the Bute.-1 .

The Columbus Columbian assumes that the Know Nothings at Cincinnati nomina ted a State Ticket, with Mr. Brineerkoff, of Mansfield, at its head, for Governor. This is a false assumption. Many individu als have been named fur the several offices to be filled. In some places, complete tick ets have been made Out. But these are on ly expressions of individual preferences. Neither K.

But then he was a negro "a man and a broth er;' while she was only a white woman "a woman and a mother." Can anything be found more revolting to every feeling of humanity in all the tiorrid and disgusting Massachusetts Diue law leg islation of two hundred years ago! If this be Puritanism, what is Barbarism! if this be Christianity, what is Paganism! if this be Liberty, what is Despotism! If this is the hospitality of a refined civilization, the wild Apaches, who drink the blood of their enemies, have been wofully libelled. They 6re accounted Uavages, yet fhey are at least true to their own race. They have neither churches, colleges, nor schools, yet they are evidently competent to teach our excessive ly Puritanicul brethren ot Massachusetts the first principles of Christianity and civilized society. The morality of the Old Bay -state nas been pretty fairly exhibited in official legis lative explorations ot Mr. Joseph hiss o& Co., of the Nunnery Committee. Mr. Hiss says that he has been made the scape-goat of his equally guilty legislative colleagues that at least one hundred and eighty mem bers of a Legislature about one-filth clergy men, have familiarized themselves with the Boston houses of prostitution. And a New Hampshire editor, who happened lately to be on a Tailroad train, containing a select committee of our Massachusetts law makers, says: "The Committee behaved in the car a great deal like men who had drank large quantities of wine and brandy. They smok ed, swore and hallooed freely, and fjr an hour or so enjoyed themselves in attempts to outdo each other in relating disgusting anecdotes, worthy of a grog-shop or house of ill-fame. The name of Mrs. .Patterson was frequently invoked by the legislators, and in terms so familiar os to leave little doubt on the minds of the hearers that she is quite a favorite with others than Joseph Hiss, of the Nunnery Committee." These two extracts make a pair of blue light spectacles through which Massachu setts humanity is discovered as a vile im posture, and Massachusetts morality and re ligion, churches, clergy, negro worship, Maine Linuor law and all, appear a repul sive humbug. But we cease to wonder that her authorities should send a native Ameri can infant across the seas for the crime ol being the child of a poor Irishwoman; that negro fugitives should he invested with the right of suffrage, while foreign-born whites are disfranchised; that negro children should be placed upon a footing of equality in the public schools with the whites we cease to wonder at any of these atrocities, on find ing that negro worship, bigotry, and hypoc risy are the ruling elements of the Massa chusetts Legislature. There must be another revolution in Mas sachusetts politics at the next popular lection, or we may next expect some run way negro to supercede the comparatively true American Know Nothing, Governor Gardner; Mrs. Patterson in the place of Judge Loring; a premium for fugitive slaves, nd a general interdict ot expulsion against the poor Irish.

The Indian tribes along our whole western frontiers appear to be com bining and arming for a general war; and it is suspected, with some reason, that the Mormons are Inciting them 10 nosiutues. It has bnen s point of Mormon policy ever since they settled in Utah to secure the friendship of the Indian tribes slong the routes of travel across the plaint, and in the regions around the Mormon settlements.

Should some genius arise among the savages like Tecum sell of old, that war would be trouble some and expensive, bdt in the end most disastrous to the Indians. They seem des tined to utter extermination; and a war now, provoked by themselves, would hasten their theirultiniate, fate. Then, the s'truggle oh (he Soil of Kansas, between the friends and foes of Blavery, bids fair to assume u dangerous aspect. Atchi son and his band of .marauders seem resolv ed to force slavery on the territory at the point of the 'bayonet; and the settlers from the north will not long submit to such an outrage. A civil war, and a bloody one, may yet determine tbe question of slavery or freedom in Kansas. We have no doubt as 'to 'the ultimate result, but in the mean time the country may be again agitated more furiously than ever before en the Blavery question, l o admit Kansas into the Union as a slave State when the majority of the people are opposed to the institution can hardly he expected of tbe northern States.

We learn from a gen tleman who res des in the vicinity of O' PJnin Statisn, on the Illinois and Wiscon sin Railroad, that an awful whirlwind swept over that neighborhood on . Tuesday after noon last. 'Persons at O'Plain witnessed about four o'clock, a spectacle like dense smoke rising in a huge column from the earth, at a distance of a few. miles to the west Tbe column extended upwards to the clouds, when it became violently agita- tea wun a winning mouon, ami coinmenc ed moving over the country towards the southeast. It bore some resemblance I a "water spout," but was more terrible ia itf sppearance and , movements. Lightning flushtd from the heavens and descended through tltd ''column, contrasting streaks of flume with its dark outlines, and lending to the whole an aspect truly learlul. The column cuntihue'd moving in a circu lar direction toward the southeast, through a segment ot about rortv-tive apgrees, wuen it suddeti'ly broke in two and disappeared. In a fe"w minutes, at the point where the column went down, it was observed , to rise again, this time apparently but a few feet in diameter. It expanded as it went whirling upward, until nearly as large as before, and in reaching the clouds (to appearance; mov ed back again towards the hjrthwest over almost precisely the eama'pnth as . before. When about halt way back to its nrst start ing point, the column-disappeared and Was no more seen. ' i l ; . This strange looking phenomenon was a whirlwind. On hear from the neighborhood where it was first observed to rise, (about twenty miles from this city,) it was lound to have been of the most terrible character uprooting and destroying everything which happened to be in its path. The 'hoiie Of Mr. Page, about a mile 'south bf O'Plain station, was 'totally demolished, and four of the inmates were killed. Three others the son and daughter-in-law of Mr. Page, and one of their children were badly, and our informant tells us, dangerously injured. The persons killed were, the wife of Mr. Page, senior,' and three of liis grand-children. Two other children were hurt, mak ing nine altegeth'e'r w'ho were either killed or injured by the calamity. : One of the children was found twenty rods from where the house stood, its body mutilated in moat shocking manner, and stripped of ev ery -particle of clothing. The house was a frume, and stood upon a solid stone foun dution, from which it was lifted bodily by the wind, and dashed to fragments Farther west, 'the whirlwind demolished a large bam, and instantly killed a fine horse a'hd a number of calves which were inside. Fences' were leveled, trees, uproot ed and twisted from their trunks by the awful power of the wind. The destruction along the path which it traveled ttiust huVe been very great. We fear that more hu man lives have been' lost. The wind, it is suid, was the most terrific which has ever been known in this region of country where whirlwinds nave not been an un common occurrence! The wind was accompnhied by a heavy fall of rain and hail. The accounts given of the size of hail stones which fell in the vicinity of OTluin are almost incredible, The conductor of the passenger train, which left here on Tuesday alternoon, assures us that he picked up a hail stone tt O Plain Station and carried it in the cars to Fox River, where it was still lurger thun lien's egg. Similar facts are vouched for by other witnesses. In this city, hail fell plentifully, many of the stones being the size of hickory nuts. Knew-Ofoiblnjrlsu In. New York.
