Intelligent men in nonalaveholding States witness with aston ishment this magnificent exhibition of the en ergy of a people who they had been taught to believe had no taste except for political abstractions, and no enterprise except in the barren and unprofitable business of Presi dent-making. It had become a received ar ticle of belief in the Northern States, that sla very had crushed out all the life and stamina of the Virginia people, and left their minds and their fields in an exhausted condition, with no power of recuperation. All the ar guments in the world could not have convin ced them of the fallacy of this theory, but the late Agricultural Fair has blown it sky high, and satisfied all men with eyes and brains in their heads, that the old Commonwealth hay been most wofully slandered. Virginia has just concluded an Agricultural Exhibition surpassing in uuinbers and spirit any similar display on the American continent, and show ing a degree of agricultural improvement and efficiency rarely equalled in this country. In connection with this grand Agricultural movement, there has been the establishment of a Mechanics' Institute, which has daily and nightly drawn admiring crowds, and elicited the most striking and gratifying evidence of the general andheartfelt interest of the whole Virginia community in the development of her mechanical industry. If the adversaries and revilers of our State could have been present at the late Agricul tural Exhibition, the impression which the report of its grand demonstration has created would have been immensely strengthened and deepened. It was not merely that the largest multitude was gathered at this Fair ever seen on a similar occasion in Ainerica- That was much indeed, for a State of the wide territorial extent, and the comparatively lim ited facilities ef travel and intercommunica tion, of Virginia. But it was the character of the assemblage, the noble appearance of the men, and the universal and uninterrupted good order and decorum, which every where and all the time prevailed. We verily be lieve that the earth might be hunted over in vain to find such another body of men, intel lectually, morally and physically, as the agri culturists of Virginia. The slave institutions of the South give leisure to the landed pro prietors for intellectual culture, and render the rural districts pre-eminent in intelligence, in dignified and manly bearing, and in the refinements and courtesies of social life. At the same time, the soil is not so generous as to yield its rewards without labor, care and skill on the part of the farmer, so that the. great body of our agriculturists are necessa rily industrious and practical men, as well as educated and courteous gentlemen. There are few drones in the Virginia hive, aud the number is becoming smaller and smaller every year. We do not believe that any where in this country can be found such a combination of the thorough farmer and the intelligent and accomplished gentleman as is to be found universally among the agricultu rists of Virginia. We hope the soil censors, who have exulted so triumphantly over the imagined decline and degeneracy of this great Com monwealth will make a note of these agricul tural and mechanical demonstrations in Vir ginia. They have laughed and jeered at the resolutions of '98 and '99 ; at Virginia ab stractions ; at Virginia statesmen and orators; what do they think of Virginia farmers and mechanics? Is there not some hope for us in the noble cultivators of the soil, and in our strong limbed and enterprising artisans ? Is there not a tolerably bright prospect for a State which caa raise more than enough from her own soil to feed her own people ; which has manufacturing capacity sufficient to clothe the world; which has noble bays, har bors and rivers; which is geographically the centre and backbone of the Union ; which has mineral treasures incalculable ; which has laid the foundation of a noble system of internal improvements, and which has resol ved hereafter to employ these practical means of greatness and wealth, instead windy speeches and resolutions ? Come on then, with your free-soil, sectional politics; we will meet you with the spindle, the rail road, the ship, the hammer aud the plough. New York State Election.—Astonish ing Result.—We confes we have never been more surprised at the result of an elec tion thau at that which has just occurred in New York. We had supposed the election of Clark, the Seward whig candidate, almost inevitable. Supported by free-soilers, abo tionists and the fag-ends of factions and isms of every kind, we looked upon the lamentable result of a great Seward victory in New York as beyond the power of man to avert. Yet, al though at the date of writing this article, it is not known " who is Governor," yet it seems almost certain that Clark is defeated. He runs far behind the ordinary whig vote. The New York Herald asks, why i* this, and what has become of the vote of the demo cratic hard shells? To these inquiries it thua respond*: "The figures for Ullman tel} the story The bulk of the Know Nothings is from the whig party—the whig silvergrays who are not of the Know Nothing fraternity, still preferred one of the order to a disunion let of the Seward coalition. These wer4 awful losses to Clark. The democratic bard shells, having foreseen the drift of the battle in the event of their adhering to Bronson, sagaciously dropped him and threw the mass of their party into the scale of Ullman. They appear to have taken this coarse as the only choice between two evils—Clark and Sey mour. Tbey could not vote for Clark, be. oaaM of his anti-slavery affiliations; they did not wish to give the drop of comfort to the administration which it wooid derive from th# election of Seymour—tbey knew that the conservative old Judge was oat of (he question and sa, by common consent— perhaps by a pro-concerted arrangement, in olading circulars or special mesiengers to all the hard shell clubs throughout the State— they have thrown the bulk of their vote for the candidate of the Know Nothings." The Herald thinks it possible there may be a majority against Seward in the lower house of the New Tork Legislature. Should this be so, says the Herald, " the arch-agita tor will hardly have any further use for an anti-Nebraska House of Representatives at Washington; for New York, in securing the advantage of a Union man in his plaoe in the Senate, will find it comparatively easy to upset his scheme for Ihe Presidency. Fel low-citizens, according to our returns, Dan iel Ullman or Horatio Seymour is Governor, and Clark and the Seward disunion coali tion are defeated. It is one of the most ex traordinary incidents of the wonderful po litical revulsion and revolution of 1834. Hut Ve think the worst is now over, and, in the solid reconstruction of things, the best is yet to come." We heartily trust the anticipations of the Herald may be realized, and the Seward clique be made to Hite the dust. With such a result, the New York elections will prove a pillar of fire to letd and guide the country out of the fearful perils by which it has been environed. Monetary Exc-tement in Cincinnati. — Me«r». Ellis & Stur|l», Banker*, of Cincinnati, sus pended on Wednesday morning, and there was a heavy run on Mes>ri. T.S.

DUDLEY it JOHNSTON, ■e 1* 146 Eagle Sqaere. • LOCAL MATTJUR*. A. Jcdson Crake. —The mechanics t)i Richmond, at well na all those lond of hearing • good ad lrraa, will doubtless bwarattti'd to lenrn that this centlrman ha* conaented to aridres, the Mechanics' lostitute to-night at 8 o'clock. Mr, C ha» long been known aa th" fast and firm iriend of the mechanic* of the city, and i; it to be hoped that they will attend the hall to-nieht to hear what he has to say The ladiea, too, may pr< tit by hia re marks, and all classes will fin<l food for reflection in the sldreas of this gentleman. We ask lor him • large and intelligent audience. The Audrey or Judge Caskie before the Mechanics' Institute, last nijjht, proved a rich intellectual treat to the large and fashionable au diencc in attendance at Corinthian Hall. Judge C. fully sustained his high reputation as an orator, and gave abundant proof in what he sd|fl of bis high regard tor the mcchanical interest* of Richmond and the South. Attempted Incendiarism. —An effort was made yesterday morning to fire and bum the old workshop on Franklin street nearly opposite Metropolitan Hall, occupied by Messrs. W. D. Selden and John Wilkerson, but owing to the timely arrival of Mr. Selden, the fire was extin guished after having burned through the first floor, and the building, wirh those around it, saved from destruction. Had the torch been applied in the nixht time, there is no telling what would have been the destruction ol property, as the shop is completely hemmed in with frame buildings. Henrico Count* Court.—This Court was engaged yesterday in the examination ol Jack son Hampton, an old man, charged with shooting with attempting to kill Benjamin Knight. These parties had a difficulty about a row, and Knieht, by iavitation of Hampton's Bon, called at the old man's house to see him. While there, unpleasant words passed between the parties, and Knight was ordered to leave the house, which he did, and repaired to the yard, where young Hampton and himself were in conversation when the prisoner caine to thg door. Here again unpleasant words passed be twaen the parties, when the prisoner told Knight if he threw down a pole against which he was leaning, he would shoot him. After applying abusive epi thets to each other for some time. Knight finally threw down the pole, when the prisoner seized his gun and shot him, putting about IliO shot in his legs and thereby endangering his life. After h careful hearing of the evidence and the argument of counsel, the Court committed the pri soner for nnal trial at the next term of the Circuit Court Is vit at ion to Orphan Children. —The Hoard of Managers of the Mechanics' Institute have passed a resolution, inviting the teachers and pupils of the Richmond Female Orphan Asylum, theSt Joseph's Orphau Asvlurfi and the Boys' Or pliau Asplum, to visit the Fair now being held at Corinthian Hall, on Saturday next, betwo p n the hours of 0 o'clock, A. M , and ■'> o'clock, P. M , free ol charge. We trust that the invitation will be ac cepted, and that every child included in it will at tend the hall ana least ti.eir little eyes on the strange sigl to to be seen therein. House Breakers.—Between the hours of 3 and 4 o'clock yesterday morning, as Lieuten ant Wheat was passing lilong liroad street between Bth and 9th, be heard a noise in an alley adjoining Mr. D. L. Cabbott's shoe store, and on making an examination into the cause, discovered two men ripping off the weather-boarding ol the house. As soon as they saw him, one ol the men shouldered a bar of iron and made off, when the officer pur sued him and gave hiin a blow with bis stick, but cot sufficiently severe to prevent bis escape. Mr.« Wheat, determined on securing one of tho two, seized John Lamb and bore him to the cape. On examining the premises, the officer found that the staple hoiding the locking had been broken, and several pieces of weatber-boardinz ripped oft", as if to effect an entry into the store On tbeper6onof the prisoner was discovered a wrench, and in the alley a short bar of iron. Veaterday the Lamb in woll's clothing was arraigned before the Mayor, who, after hearing the evidence, committed him lor examination before the Hustings Court on tb# charge of attempting to commit a felony. Useful.—Mrs. Keogh has on exhibition at the Fair of the Mechanics' Institute, two beauti ful bonnets manufactured by herself out of wheat straw, th at could not he surpassed in style or finish in any section of the Union. We also noticed at the Fair a hat made ot wheat straw, by a lady of Pow liatau, that surpassed anything of the kind sold in our market last summer. If the ladies ol Virginia can manufacture such articles in such style, with out the benefit of experience or prastice, what might not be expected of them, if they were once to determine to supply the South with Southern pro ductions. We trim the day is not far distant when the dauahters and sous ot Virginia will, by their skill and industry, be prepared to furnish her with every necessary ot life, and that her great na tural resources now lying dormant, may be speed i ly brought into use to enrich her people and in crease her wealth. Theatre.—We are happy to learn that the theatre has been well attended during the pre sent week The performance* have been of a high dramatic character, and have elicited warm prai9o from the public.

The plays se lected are The Gamester, and The Venetian, in both of which Mrs. F. appears. Every admirer of fine acting will attend the Iheatre to-night. Vagabondizing.—William Moser, hail ing from North Carolina, was found drunk and asieep in the street last Wednesday night, and as • matter of course had to be taken to the cage.— Vecterday morning he was brought before the Meyor, nod after a hearing, bid to go in place and »ia no more. Red Eif.—the famous race horse—the mention of whose name seemed to put even the children of the c:ty in a fever, has retired from the turf and is now on his way to Pittsylvania Cou»"t- a '' w ' lere he will be under the supervision of Col John L. White, to favorably known to the admirers of thoroughbred horses throughout the State. Waugh'b Italia.—A view of this beauti" fjl Panorama has fully convinced us of the truth of ali wy had heard of it. It is really magnificent. The beholder looks upon the soft and sunny tints of the Italian landscapes, and only regrets that the shifting scene so soon shuts it from his vision ; but in an in stant he is looking with wender and delight upon some other scene, more beautiful and more grand.— There is much to study, too, in the ruins of ancient greatnesi, which have been beautifully portrayed by the artist. We know of no more profitable way of spending an evening than bv a visit to the Panorama. Lecomte Tobacco.—We are indebted to our old friend David E. Booker,'Esq., of Lynchburg, of the firm of Booker 4l Halsey, for specimens of theirLiecomte brand of manufactured tobacco, which after trial, we pronounce to be very inpeiier. Whipping a Slave.—lsaac Sharp, eharged with beating Ryall, slave to Edward Majo, oo Sunday last, appeared before the Mayor yester day, to undergo an examination. Tbe evidence proved that Mr. Sharp and a man named Walker, passed over Mayo'i bridge without paying toll, at which Ryall remarked that they were no better than rogues. For this insolence Shaip chastised the servant. His Honor dismissed the warrant, and Ed vised Mr. Mayo to employ a white toll-gatherer, in stead of a black one, and thereby avoid similar dif ficulties in future Shikglk Machine.—Payn'e patent shin gle machine, now on exhibition at Corinthian Hall, perform! it work with the greatut ea<e imaginable, and lurna out ibingle* of tuperior quality.
