Wo presume that tho people of the "Old Dominion" were mover as much excited on political subjects as at the present moment. The party papers, - all over the State, are full to ovcrflow i*g, with revelations and denunciations designed to break down their opponents, and with all manner of stultifications of <??their own candidates, They can find scarcely room for oven a passing glance at the war in tho Crimea. Well," we do not covot tho labors nor the rewards ?of a political editor. In days of yore, ive published a " Democratic" paper? ?somewhat spicy at that?and not half a century afterwards, in the course of our namc figged at the ever rar' a " ^"g" journal?and abund' ^?6' 0U1 knowledge aud Mjjet, wc jhave never changed an item ?? 'a our political crccd. We have seen ?that parties chango, but^n'nMp/cs nev or. Editors who belong to a party must not only sustain the principles ?and practices of the party, but are un der the necessity of doing its drudgery and supporting its candidates, however contrary to their own predilections and convictions of right and duty. Wc set out in eur editorial career, in tho days of our verdancy, tfith the improssion that there was patriotism in politics? or, in o:her words, that the professions mado by candidates for office, of deop ?concern for the rights and interests of the dear people, wero something more III ^ ?? I that notion?and our rule of action is to judge of what men will be, when in office, by what they are and have been in the walks of private lifo; and, as a consequence, if a man worms himsolf into nomination for an office, however high or low, who is not a good: citizen, or whoso moral character is tainted, Lc cannot hare onr vote. And we aro truly happy that our position, as the publisher of a no party paper, relieves us from the necessity of endorsing the unworthy. So far as we arc concerned, every candidate must stand forth upon his own merits or demerits, and sink or swim as the totrreign voter? shall de cree?for upon them, after all, rests I th **^'r>,'"': " principles, and of electing men worthy to represent them. We do not claim, from our editorial position, to havo no opinions of our own. We have always succeeded in _ >11(041 ?; . J, i m . 1m< forming an opinion, upon sufficient data, und in expressing it at tho polls. Wo havo been taking a calm survey of the present campaign?have listened to as many speeches, and read as many doc uments,-on both sides, as our patience ?would permit. Wc havo seen personal friends?whom we have esteemed as good men and true?occupying unon viable.positions?endorsing principles', lauding practiccs, and eulogising men, which hotter information, or. more so ber reflection, will ccrtaiuly lead them to repudiate. We do not believe, as a general thing, that any compensating advantage will result to candidates from the present practice of "stumping" the " 'Til ditlMct lendt cnchintv.cnt la the clew." And from llenry A- Wise, down, down to Mr.-?Wli.-.t's-hisname? we should have felt more like giving them a vote if we had not heard and soon them! As to the position of our Mihror? wc havo always declared our intention that it should be independent, but not neutral lie columns aro equally open to our Democratic friends its to their/ opponents. It is true that, having foi the presout, an " organ" of their ow/. they do not use their liberty in fxis quarter as formerly---but this no/our fault. If a larger share of our /apcr isioccupicd in tho advocacy of qr> P01' tj (huti sf BMtlier, at lb" prcrflt OT-j sis, it 18 bccauso tliose who contribute most to its support have furnished the matter. To us, as doubtless to the reflecting portion of the community generally, it is a matter of felicitation that the con test is drawing to a close. Tiyo weeks more will givo it a quietus?and let who may. be elected or defeated, the Monongahela will still pursue its-wind ing way towards the Gulf of-Mexico? the sun yrill still rise in the East and set in the West,?and political oppo nAits will" beat their swords into plow shares," -and bo good neighbors as-be fore.

The Atlantio arrived at New York on the 4 th instant, bringing Liverpool dater to the 23d ult. The news is the most important and interesting receiv ed for some time past. The impression held of the improbability of peaco fol lowing tho efforts of negotiations at Vienna, havo been fully confirmed.? broken up, and the English and French Ministers had retired from Vienna.? War, of the most desperate and deter mined character, seoms now to bo the only resort of either party. Equally important with this unfavorable result of the Conference is the announcement that but slight hopes are now enter tained that Austria will unite with the allies a'fainst Russia. Having failed is her efforts at pacification, she returns to her former predilections for Russia, and is more likely to be found fighting for than against the Czar. The im mense importance of this result upon the war, if the announcement of Aus tria's withdrawal is confirmed, cannot be overrated. It will be likely to change the whole aspect of the struggle, and precipitate Europo into a general war. Prussia will bo confirmed in her Rus sian proclivities by the position of Aus tria, and as tho entire neutrality of these two powers can scarcely bo pro serve^ the scat of war may bo remov ed from Russia to tho banks of the Rhine. England and France would then, by the pressure of circumstances, bo forced to fall back upon the projects that woro indicated at the opening of tho war, and tho re-establishment of Poland and tho independence of Hun gary constitute tho cry that would call all Europo to arms. From the Crimea the nows is also of absorbing interest. The bombardmont of "Sevastopol commenced on the 9th, and continued up to the 15th, but with out results that would encourage the allies in attempting the assault. The allied fire is said to have been superior to that of the be'seiged, and considera ble advantages over tho Russians had been gained. Wo must wait, however, for fuller accounts before wo can cor rectly estimate the value of those re ported advantages, as tho telegraphic "xngge rated. Gortschakoff had published an address to his troops, in which he says that mattors bear an encouraging as pect for the besieged.

Editors:?I wish, through (lie medium of jour paper, to ihrow out a few thoughts for the consideration of Farmerp, Mechanics, fee., in Monongalia and the neigh boring-counties, upon a subject in which wo are all, more or less, interested. It is the a doption of somo means whereby the inter ests of Agriculture luid Ihe Mechanic Arts, amtStig'us.'may bo advanced,?their products more fully developed, aud the discoveries and improvements, in these branches of Sci ence, may be brought in to use mid thrived-1 -vantages realized here, as elsewhere. It is | certainly time that the " sons of loll'' in this region of country shoulrt catch the spirit of improvement that is abroad in the land, and prove to those who have taken the lead of us in these matters, that this portion of West ern Virginia can produce wonders in Srieuce as well as other places. The products of our " fat hills and valleys," have only to be brought into mote general notice, and a com petition gotten up among our Fanners to prove that tbpir productions will compare favorably with those of our cuuutrj^general ly. 1 might go larther, and boast a prece dence- in - these matters, but it the proper means are used, a few years will prove this. The genius aud enterprise ufrOjr Mechanics have only to be taxed by' inducements and encouragements to rivalry, tu bring out a brilliant display of Mechanism, which will elevate us, as a class, in the r) e* ol t he world. I will venture the assertion that no Town or County in the Union can compete with us in the number of valuable Inventions in Ma chinery of various kinds, which have origi nated here, and for which Patents have been obtained by our citizens. We have among us a large class ofluventors, Machinists, &c.i who are now laboring to supply a large and increasing demand for labor saving machin ery from all parts of the United Stales, and ' whose ingenuity and skill have already won for Ihem an enviable reputation. We have also produced fine specimens in the Fino Arts, Painting, Sculpturing, &c., aud can j challenge competition in this branch, with other places which have boasted lender. In short, we have a soil of superior richness, combining all the elements of Agricultural and Mineral wealth j we have rivers and smaller streams, water-power almost une qualled, and many other udvantagr-s inviting to extensive manufacturing. We have great natural facilities for, promoting the various industrial pursuits, sucb us should nut, in this progiessive age, be left to mock us with the dull murmur of their power; and which! are bound,-iWith the use of the proper means, to leap, into activity and usefulness, and to; command a flow of interchange and trade, the elements of wealth and greatness. But it is needless to go on boasting of our advantages, while we live in neglect of Ihem, unless we set about adopting active measures for blending together these several elements r. ?? ??.)??> wtng 0uuuT trw aeftrea end,?

NO PROSPEcFOF PEACE! Er Active Bombardment af 9evaitot>ol RENEWED 1 ?Sandy Hook, May 4. the steamer Atlantic has just pass ed this point going up to New York. I send you the following abstract of her important advices, which embrace Lon don and Liverpool dates to tho 23d ult. The Vienna Conference has been broken off and Russia has rejected tho demand of the allies. Sevastopol has been bombarded sineo the 9 th, and the result was doubtful. The new British loan has been taken by the Rothschilds in jEIOO consols at 15s. 6d. in the shape of tin annuity terminable in 80 years. The taxes have been increased. Tho Emperor Napoleon accompanied by tho Empress have been a week in England and immensely glorified. England assents to Louis Napoleon taking command of the allied army in the Crimea. This, however, is regard ed by many as only a doubtful rumor. The Vionna Conference was broken off after ihe 12th session. Thero are strong indications that Austria will now reftise to act against Russia. Lord John Russell and M. Drouyn de l'Huys have left Vienna. The bombardment of Sevastopol with 600 guns commenced on the 9th, and was continued incessantly up to tho 15th, at which time an assault was not doomed practicable, but the intention was to storm the place, if possible. SECOND DISPATCH. Sandy Hook, Mav4.?The Atlantic dates are two days later than was ex pected, as she did not sail until Monday the 23d ult. Tho Asia arrived out at Liverpool on the 22d. All hopes of Austria taking the field against Russia arc at an end for the present. From the seat of war we learn that during the first two days oi tlio bom bardment the firo of the besiegers was , ***** y* am aw f a ^ aI ? ? damage was done to the Russian works. During the night of the 13th the left attack of the allies obtained a consider able advantage over tho Russians, who wpre twice dislodged from a strongly ?fortified position, which remained in the hands of the French. The posses sion of this position enables the allies to fortify the summit of the ravine, which is of groat importance. Since tho siege began five of tho seven Admi rals of tho Russian fleet, in Sevastopol, had either died of wounds or been killed. Gortschakoff has published an ad dress to the garrison in which he states that matters look inoro encouraging to the besieged. Official statements roturn two hun dred and forty-seven killed on both sides. The excitement continues, and a deputation is to be sent to the Sultan to demand justicc. The operations for strengthening tho Russiun forts in tho Baltic were going forward 'with great aotivity, and .one hundred and twenty thousand troops woro concentrated in tho Russo-Baltic provinces. Most of the British advance squadron was detained in the Great Belt by the ice. Parliament assembled on the 16th. The estimates for expenses of govern ment for the year is eighty-six million pounds. The revenue is estimated at sixty-three millions three hundred and thirty-nine thousand pounds. It is thought that much party discord will arise from tho manner of securing the new loan, as it involves a great princi ple of financo.

On tihe 10th ult., both tho Frcnch aftd English tieived tho bombardment as effective, but nothing docisivo had occurred to warrant a conclusion as to the immediate issue. Tho French left ?batteries had made a treach in tho in dontod wall. The two fronts of the last erected ftttssian battery were much in jured, and one of the Russian works of counter approach near the harbor was silenced. Advices from Balaklava have been received to the 17th. Tho fire of the 'allies had done considerable damC.ge, but tho Russians displayed extreme ac tivity in repairing the injured works. Several French mines had been sprung which did considerable damago to the place. A Russian lady has been captured making drawings of the Frcnch trench es. Stio said her husband was named Benneff and was killed at Afeia, and she had since acted as a volunteer spy. St. Petersburg, April 16.?Prince Gortschakoff announces from Sevasto pol that at 5 o'clock on tho morning of : tiie Uth of Aprd the allies opened a I cannonade from all their batteries, whicli lasted till evening, and was car ried on in a lesser d&gree throughout: the night. On the 10th the bombard 1 inent was resumed.and the Russians rc Jilicd with success, causing a sensible oss to the besiegers, but with a loss to | the garrison of838 killed and wounded. April 15.?Prince Gortschakoff re1 ports from Sevastopol as follows: The bombardment of tho city contin ued without intermission since April 19th. The damages are repaired during I the night, and Sevastopol is to-day in ! almost the same state of defence as on i the 9th. The loss sustained by the 'garrison, considering tho tremendous lire of the enemy, is but small. | There is nothing new from the other parts of the Crimea. FROM UTAH. Col Steptoe iii now the Territorial Governor of Salt Lake City. Oh New year's day quite a serious collision took place between the United States sol biers and the citizens at a datnking shop. Fire-arms were freely used, and sev en or eight persons were shut, but fol tunately uoue of them wtire killed.? Two of the soldiers wore severely I wounded, and for a lime it was thought ! could not recover The Mormons or deted out the "Legion,"' thieutuning to destroy the whole battalion of th$ United States Hoops In the <ity undere ll.hil.. I I i ? I 1 1 ? United States troops were quickly par aded under arras. They strengthened their position and waited for the assault of the "'Legion," which was evety mo ment expected. This state of quasi watf'are lasted for three days, when calmer counsels prevailed and hostil ities ceased. As the affair grew out of drunTten lit, an order was ii-sued by the civil authorities forbidding the fuither ?ale of ardent spirits in the city. The Territorial Legislature of Utah, at their late session, passed an act or ganizing Carson Valley into a county of i that name. They hud appointed one Styles as Distiict Judge and Otsdn Hyde as Probate Judge of the county.

In another ?column of our paper will be found detailed a"deaciipii?n of noma vi_. olent and vehement proceeding j? Parkville, Plalto county, of iliin Stale last Sa'uiday. It seems that lliu Purk ville Luminary newspaper, conducted by George S. Park and Wi J.

They did abate it. in quite a summary way loo. They proceeded to the office,'fore the proas from the building, mounted it with a cap labelled "Boston Aid,1' parched it de liberately through the streets of the town and tossed it into the Missouri river. They had determined not only to reak their vengeance on the mute w heels and levers of the printing press, but to gi>e the owners thereof a laste of then wrath also.
