THE DAILY DISPATCH.
■ ff" TO ADVERTMERS.—Thecirculatloo of the Dispatch is tbiii timzs as large as that o' any other Daily paper is the city of Richmond. 11 Is therefore greatly superior to any other aa a vidian) of advertising. RICHMOND, VA.i Taeaday Naming Awynat 17, ry Person* abroad from the city cat have the Ditpatch sent to them for any period of time they may deaire, by leavin* their orders and paying the cash for the timespeciiled. THE PROTEST OF THE HOLY ALLI ANCE AGAINST THE RESTAB LISHMENT OF THE EMPIRE IN FRANCE. Napoleon naid of the Bourbons, that not withstanding all the sufferings tbev had en dured during their exile, they had learned notb j-.r nr.J ft." • v.ct. nuthiiifc. They went awey the moe: ignorant, stupid, bigoted, of the whole human race, and they came back precisely as tbey had gone. The same thing, we believe, bad been said of the Stuarts, and with quite as much reason. Indeed, we doubt if there is a royal race in the world to whem the remark may r.otjusily be applied, were they placed under circumstances calculated to draw it forth. Kings have not the opportunity of judging of the progress of the world and of the world's ideas, as other men have. To them the idea of three centuries ago, is the idea of to-day, and w ill be the idea cf to-morrow. Expel the in from the throne, for offences of the most flagrant nature, and they are never cor rected by Hie infliction. Reinstal them, and thev commit the same offence with the most unerring certainty. That is not all, however. Their brother Kings, tho 1 spectators merely, cannot see the follies they commit—cannot see that their whole movements are against the age. The French revolution caused the death of a! least six millions of human beings. It was produced by the follies of a race of Kings which had been accumulating for centuries, and which finally led one of them to the block. It caused a general massacre or expulsion of the nobles and priests and it ended in the erec tion of a military empire. The head of that empire, after such a profusion of bloodshed as the world had never seen—was at lust over thrown. The old race of Kings is brought back to be expelled a second time. France has thus shown that she will not have them— that .she will endure everything rather than submit to them. Yet the three principal pow ers of Europe—they who profanely call them selves the Holy Alliance—are determined that they shall return—that they shall govern France—that if it can be done in no other manner, it shall be done at the point of the bayonet! The wickedness—the atrocity—the appalling criminality of this determination, let them be veiled under what cunning terms of diplomacy they may, are apparent enough.— They meun that legitimacy, that for which so much blood has been shed, is to be the cause of shedding still mole. They mean that France shall not govern herself—that the people have no rights—that their liberties are to be extin guished at all hazirds. All this might have been expected from the Holy Alliance, be* cause it is perfectly consistent with their known principles, and it is not for this that we denounce this convention as so supremely wicked. It is because the authors of it know that they are deliberately preparing a war which may lust for half a century, anil involve the who's world. They cannot believe that France will submit to have the Bourbons forced upon her a second time ut ths point of the bayonet, save after a terrible struggle. They are therefore deliberately preparing, for the sake of a family, detested by a large majority of the French people, to force that family upon them, though it cost ten millions of lives, audit can scarce ly cost less. We are, we hope, true republicans. We are something even more than that. \\ • are in favor of allowing every people to choose their own form of government. We detest compul sion. We would not force people to do any thing—even to become freemen—if they did not wish it. We hoped, when the Revolution of 1848 broke out, the French would be re publicans. We hoped that they bad learned wisdom by sixty years of experience and suf fering. But they have not thought proper to fall iuto our views, and they were at perfect liberty to do so or not, as they might think proper. They have preferred to take Louis Napoleon, for belter,for worse, as a man takes his wife. As republicans we assert that no man has a right to gainsay their choice. If they choose, in their own country, and without interfering with any one else, to eiect the em pire a second time, and to pJt him on it, we say let them do it. As for the Holy Alliance, we think Nicholas would do much betier with out Francis Joseph than with him. He will prove a heavy drug on Lim, or »e are very much deceived. It is only by his assistance that Hungury and Italy ate kept down. ANOTHER STEAMBOAT RACE ON THE HUDSON'. We pnoiild have thought that the disaster of the Henry Clay would have kepi rtcing at a discount on the North River for son # time to come. But it seems to be as lively as ever. A correspondent of the New Vork Herald de scribes one of a very exciting and dangerous character which touk place on Friday last be tween two boats called the Alida and the Francis Skiddy. Neither of them blew up. THE DEFEAT OF THE AMERICA. The English papers speak with considera» ble exultation of the defeat of this yacht, for no other reason that we can see, than the fact of her having been built in the United States. She wu not, at the time, owned by Americans' and what is still more important, she was not manned by Americans. Had her crew been American, there might have been some cause for exultation; hut as lone as she was in Yan kee handa, she slipped away from every thing that could be brought against her with the moat perfect eaae. ia any thing more wanted to prove aatiafactorily that the Yankee sailo. ia the beat in the world? rr Seven dwellings were burnt in Ham burg atreet, Baltimore, Saturday night, by ib •tadiariee. j\ CAMELS FOE NEW MEXICO. In the debate upon the Army Appropriation Bill, in the House of Representatnrn on Fri day laat, Mr. Biaael, of Ohio, offered an amend ment appropriating $20,000 for the purpose of introducing the camel into the aerrice, to be employed in the vast deaertaofour posaeaaiona acquired from Mexico. Mr. Biaael told the House that thia aubject had occupied the at. tention of the Secretary of War for several years— that he had resorted to all the means in the power of the government to obtain the best and fullest information—and that the re sult had been a firm conviction that camels were the best means of communication across those immense deserts. The amendment was opposed, but finally prevailed. We are glad to hear that this appropriation has been put into the general bill, and we hope it will succeed. The experiment is one that deserves to be made. How else, for the pre sent tit least, ore *•* to those immense barriers, the most formidable, »e believe, ot their kind, in the world, with the exception of the Great Sahara? Innumerable lives are lost there every year, on account of the difficulty of getting water, the animals dying first, and as a matter of course, the men afterwards. This may be obviated by the employment of theca mel. That animal travels, with ease, sixty miles a dav. and is in no danger of dying of thirst. The traveller, therefore, will never lose his mode of transportation, whatever else he may be compelled to suffer. He may always have along with him ail that is neces sary for subsistence, because the camel can carry more than almost Bny other beast of bur den. Besides, we might learn from the expe rience of others that the camel is the only, or at least, the best animal to be employed in desert wars. Napoleon, when in Egypt, had a regiment of dromedaries to fight the Arabs in their deserts, and we believe the English em ploy them in the same way in India. We had much conversation with Mr. Glid don upon this subject, and we became convinc ed that this was the only way of carrying on a successful war against the savages who in - fest the cultivated portions of that distant country, murder the inhabitants, and take to the desert, as to a place perfectly inaccessible. — We suspect the Secretary has had some com munication with him, for the suggestion was originally his. We hope to see the camel na turalised in that part of our territories, as there is no doubt that he may be, with ease. THE LYNCHBURG VIRGINIAN. We should have mentioned that this ancient and well edited sheet has been converted into a daily, no change being made in the editorial and proprietary departments. Over the for mer, Mr. McDonald still continues to presido with his accustomed ability, while the names of Shields &, Terry are retained as heads o! the latter. Lynchburg has now two excellent dailies, the one on the old system of subscription, the other on the penny plan. We do not know, however, that they are at all antagonistic, for the one is political, and the other neutral, so that the fields tiiey occupy are essentially dif ferent. As the town is growing, and the peo ple are enterprising, we have no doubt there will be aplenty for both, and we hope both may enjoy a plenty. The Republican, also an excellent paper, and taking the opposite politi cal side to the Virginian, hangs back yet awhile from the daily arrangement. We think it will be obliged to come over, however, in the end. The magnetic telegraph, indeed, wiJJ be get dailies wherever it goes, even in places where, but a short time since, they would not have been dreamed of. It is proper, in the mean time, to observe, that we know no town of the same size with Lynchburg so well supplied with newspapers, both as to number and quali ly. A view of the pretty sheet on which the Vir ginian is piinted. recalls to our recollection the v ast change which has been made in journal ism, even in Virginia, where new ideas are not apt to take hold with great facility. We re member the Virginian longer than we do any other newspaper in existence. It was original ly called the Lynchburg Press, and was owned when we first knew it, by William Duffie.— About the beginning of the year 1820, the late John H. Pleasantß bought into it, and n<imed it the " Virginian." From that time we remem ber it well, and we perfectly remember th; first sheet of it we ever saw. It was a little, d»rk colored, old locking sheet, the type having b«en in lit rd use probably for twenty years. IV e congratulate the proprietors upon its change for H>e better in this particular, and wist tiiem all the success they can desire. From South America. Baltimore, Aug. 13, 1852.—A letter rec*Sv ed ut the American office, from Ciudad Boli var, under date 11th ult., contains gome poli tical and commercial intelligence. The elections were going on, and treated much excitement. The American residents celebrated he 4th with national salutes,and a grand bull in the evening.

Alexandria, Va., Aug. 15. The bark Veaa*iu», of Baltimore. Captain Woodburn,arrived here on Thursday from Cal lao. Her crew, shipped at that port, were represented to be "able aeamen" and "ordina ry seamen." On going to eea, the officers soon discovered that but two of the former were able to perform duly : wbil«t the "ordinary men did nol know one rope from another— nor are thev much wiser now, as the captain states. On the 26th June, at n.idnieht, about lati tude 37 South, longitude 36 West, the vessel experienced a heavy blow. It became necea sary to double reef the maintopsa 1. In reef in?, the vard is laid to the wind, so that the sail' may slake instead of being full, in order to knot the points with ea»e. Mr. Henry Cross, chief mate, whose proper station was on deck, at the brace?, perceiving the inefficiency of the msn, went aloft to assist them. Capt. Wood huin took the wheel, and sent the helmsman aloft also. In the operation of reefing, the sail gave a tremendous shake and threw off into the sea one of the hands, named Edwd. Town, said to be originally from Cincinnati, Ohio, and he was drowned. The melancholy circumstance was attribu ted to accident. The vessel pursued her course homeward without the slightest allega tion or suspicion against any one. On Friday evening two of the crew went before Justice William H. Fowler, and charged the chief mate with having knocked the man Town overboard on the occasion referred to, and after investigation, Mr. Cross was committed tojail. This action on the oart of the two men equally astonished the captain, second male, the other men, who at the time were on the vard, as well as others who had for more than two months been messmates with the de ceased. Except the two tnen alluded to, all on board certify to the ability and uniform the chief mate, and the second mute testifies that in reefing the prisoner was himself in im inent peril of his own safety. Mr. Cross, tfie chief mate, was formerly of Cincinnati, but has a family now residing in New York, where he claims citizenship. The captain and second mate are held by their own recocnizance to appear at the .Supe rior Court, in Richmond, Va., where the trial will take place. From Tampico.—By an arrival at New Or» leans, the Picayune has dates from Tampico to the 21st ult. The only news we find is the arrival of a Go/eminent express on the 20th, with permis sion for the introduction into the port of Tam pico of 1500 bbls. of flour and sufficient lard to satisfy the exigencies of the moment. The editor of the Comerico says that the Government has thus given a proof that it is animated with the best intentions in favor of towns which like Tampico, are in a decaying state. French Cure for Hydrophobia.—The Paris Board of Health, in view of the preva lence of hydrophobia among the dogs of thu* city, has published the following notice : 1. Every person bit by an animal who is mnd, or suspected of being mad, should itn:iie» diatelv press the wound on all sides, to force out the blood and the virus. 2. The wound should then be immediately washed with volatile alkali, soap suds, with lime water, with salt water, or pure water, or if none of these are at hand, with urine. 3. An iron, at white heat, should nest le pressed deeply into the wound. These directions, if rigidly followed, will be found sufficient to ensure against the possibili ty of the appearunce of this frightful conta gious disease. Led into error, as we too often are, by the Telegraphic reports of distant elections, we, in common with our neighbors, announced in our ast number the election of two Whig Represen tatives to Congress and of a Whig Legislature in the State of lowu. Such a success in that State could not have been expected, and was hardly credible. We could not, however, doubt apositive averment received through several channels, and we give the news as it cauie to us. Subsequent accounts, through the same chan nel, now represent that the Democrats have elected one of the Representatives in Congress, (Mr Henn,) and also a majority of the members of the State Legislature.— National Inlel/i --geucer. Melancholy Occurrence.—'The body ot Mr Balaam Burch,Carpenter, was found yes terday afternoon under the arch nt 3d and D streets. He went from home on Wednesday evening last to a part of the city called English Hill, on an eirnnd of kindness to soine|newly ar rived immigrants, w hotn he left abou l 9 o'clock, and nothing more could be heard of him until yesterday afternoon, when his body was found, as above mentioned. His watch and other va luables were still on his person, discouraging the idea of violence; and it is supposed that in the dark he missed iiis path and fell into the large open conduit, swollen by the heavy ram of that evening, and was swept under the arch across 3d street and drowned. Mr. B. was a very worthy and much esteemed citizen, and has left many relatives and friends to de plore his loss.—Nat. Int. of yesterday. Two barrels of liquor were seized and de stroyed, according to law, in Cabotville, Mass., a lew days since. Ihe liquor was poured into the street in presence of a large crowd, and took its way through a wooden sewer, »hen a mischievous boy, at the lower end of the sew er, applied a match to the fluid, which flamed up, the flame running back through the se»ver ami setting it on tire.

Fn»<—About half part eight o'clock last night, the alarm of Are waa given, and it wu aoon found to proceed from theestablishment ranted by J-A. Glaxebrook, and occupied by IMac J. Mercer a* a sash, door and blind manufactory, and J A. Glaze brook aa a steam planing mill, on the south aide of the Dock, nearly oppoaite the Dock office. Tba locality is well known to our citizen* by the planing .machine which was • part of the establishment. The whole building burned down with inconceiv able rapidity. An. immense quantity of lumber be irg" within and areund it, took fire and was a!s o consumed. The conflagration was a most bril liant, but at tbe same time, a molt rapid one. The loss was great, and we learn was covered by no in surance of any consequence. We understand there was on the premises a very good steam engine used to drive tbe works. We understand Mr. Mercer's loss is between $1200 and $1500, upon which there was no insu rance. The entire loss is believed to be very great, but no correct e«tiraate cou'd be made of it last night. Fbotractkd Meetings —This is the period of the year selected by Methodist congregations, loca ted in the different circuits of Virginia, for holding protracted meetings. These meetings usually com. menceon Sunday—and are held in neat and retired country edifices, where peace, quietness and sim plicity, are the chief characteristics. More pleat ant seasons of enjoyment cannot be imagined. When a meeting is appointed to commence at a particular place, at an early hour of the day sele:ted, the peo ple fur miles around gather to the consecrated edi fice- They bring with them large hampers of choicely prepared refreshments wherewith to sup ply the cravings of hunger between the morning and evening servicf. The discission of these home-made, old fashioned and delicious country dinners, affords full opportunity for a free inter change of neighborly enquiries and social courte sies. These meetings continue three or four days The difference between them and camp meetings, consists in the fact that the visitors go home every evening and do not camp out in tents. The objects of both are alike, viz: the conversion of souls.— Sunday last we paid a visit to a meeting that had just commenced under the auspices of the Hev. Mr. McMullen, at North Cut Church, situated about 9 miles from Richmond, in Henrico county. Tne church is a plain and substantial one, and delight fully located amongst grovel of trees. We found but few on the ground at 10 o'clock, but by 11 the pe >p'e commenced pouring in troin every direc tion. The road, for a brief season, was literally covered with vehicles. Here would come a stately» old-fashioned formed coach, containing a dignified gentleman of the old school and his graceful farni. ly. Then the more democratic wagon filled with high backed chairs tnat were lade l with trim and smiling Methodist girls, would drive up. What a scrambling the arrival of these democretic coaches occasioned among the boys! The race of gallantry was short but vigorous. A rustling of dresses and subdued laughter is heard, ani a marry bound pla ces the comely persons of the damsels oa mother earth. Then comes a vigorous crookiyg ofelbows, and a clou J of waving umbrellas shades the pass age of beauty and manliness to the church. Arri ved there, the triumphant gallants leave their ladies arid take scats on the opposite side of the road as "outsiders," until the minister arrives. A cloud ot dust announces the arrival of several buggy loads ofthe"boys"lrom Richmond who gladly exchange the heat and bustle of the city for the calm and refreshing rural loveliness of the country. But now the minister is seen entering the church, and a general movement takes place for seats insiie by tne "outsiders." The church it speedily filled, and those excluded from seats coctent themselves with standing by the windows, where they can whisper "salt talk" with some mischievous and tenderhear t ed Miss* But now the assembly rite, and their united voice wafts to the upper sphere a holy song of praise. Soon the solemn silence proclaims the period of pi ay er, and in revereatial tones the meed ot intercession with a Divine B»ing is offered. We have not time to enlarge upon the eloquent and touching 6ermou which followed from one ot the "old style" preachers. It was replete with practi cal advice, beautiful imagery, and touching allu sions. We think, however, if Mr. McD. had cut oil from both ends, and given only the middle of tae discourse, there wouid have been a decidtd i nprovement upon its effect Short and pointed remarks of advice are easily understood and more generally iollowed. In these days we have too much sermonising and too little practice. We have a decided aversion to a 90 minute sermon of a hot August day. The scene that followed the breaking up of the morning service was a joyous one. Groups were ipeeuiiy formed arttund tables; and as many hands make light work in a trice, chick ens, ducks, hams, beef pies, cakea, and fruit of all varieties, were spread out, and the eating set in Tnere certainly was no stint of the larder; and the proverbial hospitality of Virginians was fully exhi bited in the ardur with which tne proprietors of the respective tables pressed upon/riends and visitors their home-brewed luxuries Judging from the profusion, there certainly must have been "twelve baskets full" of the iragments gathered up alter all had partaken. A few moment's rest was then pro fitably spent by the old folks ia talking about "crops," "times," "politics,' -religion," and the ge ner.-tl health; and by the young ones in chatting and walking and eociaoly talking. There is cer tainly a simple confidence of manner iu U ur coun try ladies that is absolutely bewitching. Like na ture they are guileless and tree trom the restraint* and fashions of the city. We trust our lady read ers will pardon us in saying that if they would graft some of the simple unstudied graces of our bumble country maidtns upon their own tree hearted na tures, th-y would make perfection perlect. Buj we have been led to extend this notice to an un due length, and must conclude by spying that we left the afternoon meeting at the church still in progress, and returned to our city invigorated, and we trust instructed by our trip, A meeting will commence at Shady Grove on tbe Mechanicsville road, 7 miles from Richmond, next Suaday; and on the Sunday following at Brook Caurch. Assault.—On Saturday last, an altercation took place in Watson A Hughea' office on Governor street, between Sstnuel Laird and John A. Temple, respecting some business aff-drs, which resulted in Laird's striking T -inple a severe blow. On yesterday Mr. Laird was examined before the Mayor, on the cnarge of atsault, which being clearly proven, the Mayor recognized Laird in the sum of feiiOO to app-ar to antwer the charge belore tfce Grand Jury cf the Hustings Court in November next. Threatening —Lewis Scott, a free negro, on Saturday threatened to whip another free negro named Washington May. Yesterday the Mayor ordered Scott 2j lashes, and in defaultof $100 se curity committed him to jail Whifpikg.—A man named James Ford, for waippir.g, without cause or provocation, Thomas, •lave to A. M. Braxton, od Saturday last,wasbound over in the turn ot $100. Fined.— Horace L. Kent was, on yesterday, fined •l and costs, for ifce misdemeanor of his servant in roiling a wheeibarrow on a portion ul the aid*, wa k of Broad street. CoaucTioN —In our notice of tbe content* of the Aofutt number of tbe Southern Literary Me»- senger,on yerterday, the mm »«impaired by two serioui typographical error* which, howerer, we truat the good sense of our reader* corrected for themselves. On tbe sixteenth line, instead of "one," read "areand on the eighteenth Hne, for ' ie*iew«," read "review." Corrected, the Para graph read* aa followa: Some "reflectiona auggeated by the death and character of Henry Clay," are remarkably clear, terae, and appropriate. But the able, elaborate, and profound review of lectures on the "Eviden cea of Chriatianity," delivered at the University of Virginia, in 1850-51, ia the chief feature of thia number. The evidences of our faith are developed by it in a masterly manner. Chabges Dismissed —Samuel Overton,slave to James Winston, was arrested Saturday evening on suspicion of stealing a small quantity of soap found in his possession. On proving that he had pro cured the soap honestly, the Mayor discharged the negro from custody. Joseph Logan, a slave hired to the city, was also arrei,U;d tfctuid.y evening on the charge of steal ing a pair ofshoea from a white man named Thorn as Westman. The charge was not proved before the Mayor, yesterday, and the accused was dis charged from custody. Without Pass A slave naved William, hired to R. A. Mayo, was found by the watch asleep in the lower market housa Saturday evening, and haviDg no pass, was taken to the cage. Yesterday he was punished with ten lashes. Stealing [Chickeks —Albert Brown, a alave hired to Dickenson & Vizer, was on yesterday brought before the Mayor on the charge of stealing several ducks and chickens from Samuel S. Birck on Saturday last The charge was proven and Brown was ordered 39 lashes. Excubsion. —The Young Guard make their third anuuai excursion down the river, in the steam boat Curtis Peck, on Monday, the 30th of August, at 7 o'clock PM. The fact that the members of this company are all joung and mostly tingle men, with stout hearts, impervious to every fear but that of woman's hute, will certainly tend to draw togeth er on this trip, one of the most loving and lovable, dutiful and beautiful parties of ladies that ever lett Rocketts for pleasure. Stealing a Watch. —A negro named Thomas Hal°y, toe propertj of S. S. Myers, some days •incestolea watcn worth $25,"from a fellow labor er employed in the same factory, named James Tompkins. Haley on yesterday was ordered by the Mayor 39 lashes. James Yateman, an accessory to the thelt, was ordered 25 lashes. Asleep.—Carter Rutherford, a slave hired to Royster Si Gentry, was found by the watch asleep in tne lower market house, on Sunday night, and taken to the cage. Yesterday he received ten lashes. Dbcnk.—James Morgan, arrested for drunken* ne6s Sunday night, was on yesterday discharged from custody by the Mayor with an admonition.

In the summer ot 1650, I was aitacked with a vio lent diarrhcca, and after try trig the remedies pre scribed by two or three eminent physicians tor 18 months, without any etfect, and betag reduced al most to a skeleton, and scarcely able to walk across my room, I accidentally received one of your cir culars, in which I found my disease exactly de scribed. My son went to Petersburg and purchas ed a bottle ot tne DYSPEPTIC COMPOUND, with a box of your FAMILY on ALTERATI VE PILLS, and to my great astonishment and satisfaction, I tound gr.eat relief in a lew days; and in two we«kt> I was entirely well. At this time I am iu better health than 1 have been in ten o r twelve ycar». In short, sir, your medicine saved my life. Your, with respect, GEO. J. JONES. The above preparations, and all ur.
