The Know Nothing Hominatiana is Vir ginia.?We have jut before going to press, ft private dispatch from Winchester, announcing tie following as tha ncminationi made last trght g iid this morning by tha Know Nothing State Congestion, now in session in Winches tar, Tii: Thos. S Flournoy, (whig ) of Halifax county, for Governor. J M. II Beale, (democrat,) of Mason county, lor Lieatenatt Governor. John M. Pattoo, (democrat,) of Klchmond city, for Attorney General. All these nomination* were made on the first ballot Magic ?The habitue of New York city for the fire years ending six months since, who has been ab.ent from its thoroughfares since that time, will be astounded at the change? which the energy and sagacity of Mayor Wood, (aidtd by under-officials really disposed to assist his work of reform) has effected. Broad way, and all the other of the city's grsat thoroughfares, through the whole of their length, looked, last week, as clean as the parade ground of a ltusjian fortification; while the cross streets do not contain a tithe of the filth which not long since rendered it a sickening job, indeed, for a stranger to per ambulate the high ways of the commercial me tropolis. The " corner groccry keepers"?the wretches who retail most villainous compounds under the soubriquet of liquors, to young and o!d, good, bad and indifferent, in places which the poor of the neighborhood, of both sexes, a^d all rges, frequent necessarily almost hourly?are at length comp!etely in subjection to the law. Not one of t-iora can now bo irduced to sell oven bread on Sunday, the risk of prosecution fcr keeping open on that day being almost an absolute certainty, owing to the vigilance cf the police. Ii a passer drops his handkerchief in Broadway, a policeman overtakes and hands it to him in a miaute. If an elderly lady or little gir! desires to cross that bu?y street, a policeman is sure to be at hand, to secure for her a suro transit amid the animals and wheels cf the multitude of vehicles Now, a policemen has but to rai:e hi* finger, and any o. o whti;e conduct teems likely to need his interference, obeys the s?gn with wonder ful alacrity; the crrtainty of sn arrest, other wii9, nnc con^cq'teut in 'ant punkhtnent by the fiat cf tfce M tyor, being ever present ap parently before the eye* of al! who not long sin-e wero a^caitemei to behave like rufuauf to those in the street* who m-.ght ha unable to protcct themselves. Tha Par* is now always clear of decide! loaters, nor arc persons of known bad character (of whom the New York police know tecs cf th..u-an Is by sight) al lowed to linger a momeut anywhere in a par ticular place. The fcackmen seem all to have beoome cor taous to every body, r.nd no longer annoy travelers at the landings and d<?po'?, or visitors cf places of amusemert. The Five Points have vanished. a differt-iit population being vUitle around th?t lntely so disreputab'e quarter. The cri i.e3 of the harpiea who prey on the emigrant?, of tbo meek auctioneers rrd of tho=e who practice the hundred other callings in New York, tho basis of suc:?s in wbich li:-s in swiudiia^ ml bullying, nre new pnnuked within one or two hour* after inr)r ma'icn boj been ledgeu; which insures the lodgnent ot the necessary information, as toon as the victim finds that he or she has been tahen in a-d done for. Any one who trenches in any manner on the rights of bis ne;gh o r. or of the public, in New York, now ex pects to be quickly fummoned by a policeman to attend btfore bis honor tho Mayor, who bears toth sides of a ease, given judgment, and signa the order to have it carried out, all in an average of five minutes to the cause, and m*ke3 it a rule rarely to listen to an appeal for a stay of*execution! Tha consequence of all this is, that New \ork is besoming a more truly polite city than Paris, every one rocking to avoid iatcrfering with the comfort or r ghts of any ore else. The police are already satisfied wiih too order compelling them always to ap pear ia a conspicuous uniform. While they assiduously watch the public, the lattor quite as assiduously wat hes them. 'Jheir efficient dijchargc of thair duties 13 noticed by all im mediately interested; so they get due credit lor all their faithful services. An esprit flu rorps on thoir pert has already teen the result, such is we never bcrore saw among that class of public functionaries. Instant di?m?jsil or other punishment now follows the slightest derelictica from duty or improper eonduot on the pari of a policsman, as it is noted by hun dreds, and quickly repoaei to the chief. The Mayor and the Chief who h?ve together worked these magical reform?, very frequeUly over step their lawful authority, beyond all ques tion, in so doing. Yet public opinion eo main tains them, t^at thoso whose legal rights are thus trenc:.ed upon haruiy daro to compluin Tha changes whrh tbtsa two efficient func tionaries hava effected ia the .ttuiu* of tha commercial metropolis of tho New World, amount, ia fact, to a social revolution essen tially altering the face cf sojiaty thera. fo thit i*. is difficult for one who Las boon ab sent for a few months from the city, to recog nize tae Laaring aad habits of its denizens, in public. louutt'alAst ?Tuesday a New York Ihr. a'.d has the following : n x .

The Palmerston ministry has fallen to pieeea.

Rumor says thai Roefoffk's party will aot real satisfied without tbe impeachment of Lord Raglan and one or more of the ex-ministers. Lord Palmerstoa Is.much troubled about the re construction of the cabinet, not having ful-y completed it. Lord Joha Russell takes the Colonial Secretaryship as a stop gap, but will complete his mission to Vienna. Rumor given Lord Raglan a seat in the cab inet, and the Earl of Carlisle, Viceroy of Ire land, and the new chancellorship of the Ex* cbeqner, to Mr. Lewis, an untried man. Members of tho Government express confi dent hope* that tbe pending negotiations will lead to an honorable peace, although war measures continue all over Europe. Very inclement weather has caused much suffering among the poor in England. Riots have occurred at Liverpool and Leadon, but no oharge for the better is yet apparent.

[8SCOMD DISPATCH I Lord John Russell has published an address to bis constituents defining bis position, and places himself in their han^s as a oandidate for a renewal of their confidence. Oa tbe 14th the royal assent was given to the North American Fisheries bill A Convention between Great Britain and the Porte has been eigned for the enlistment of a Turkish contingent. An interesting debate arose upon the ques tion of going into committee on the army esti mates. Lord Palmerston said the sufferings of the /.r?>arose from physioal oauses, beyond tho control of man, and was not confined to the British The sick and wounded in the Russian army had been estimated at 35.000 He also announced the recall of the Earl of Lucan, in consequence of his difference with Lord R.iglan. On tbe 20ih the Duke of Cambridge took his .seat in the House of Lord3. Lord Panmure said compulsory measures mast unquestionably be resorted to, to fill tbe ranks of tho service. la the lloiue of CommonB a discussion arose in regard to commeroe with Rufsla since the oommenoement of the war. It was stated in debate, that under the prosent system of block ading. the interior trade of Russia suffered no injury, and that ten millions of pounds sterl ing bad gone from Great Britain to that country. Tbe right of eeach was urged as a necessity in order to prevent the introduction of Rus sian goods iato Great Britain. It was deemed not advisable to lay before tbe House the correspondence between Great Britain and the United States on international arrangements during the war. It was stated, however, that the two countries continued on the most friendly terms. Destitution in England had almost reached its height. The unusually high prices of pro visions, stagnation of business, and an unusu ally severe winter, had thrown thousands out of employment, with no food. Every two or three days disturbances occur among the un employed in London and Liverpool. Tho weather in the Crimea has considerably moderated, and the snow has almost entirely disappaarod. Tbe health of the army Is bet. ur. The doge operations are progressing with considerable vigor. Orders have been re ceived at Constantinople to prepare a hospital, with bads for 5.000 men; from which it is in ferred that an assault is soon to be made upon Sebaete^cl. The Baltic fleet Is to consist of fifty war aeamers, carrying 2,060 guns, and five float ing batteries, oarrying8 guns each; eight mor tar ships, and twenty eight steam gun boats, carrying 68 guns; making a total of 100 ves sels, carrying 2,278 guvs. Whether Louis Napoleon will go to the Crimea is a matter of question. It is said that he has drawn a plan of vast military strategy, which be wishes to personally superintend. England and Austria think he had better leave it with his Generals. The Americans in Paris gave a grand ball io commemoration of Washington's birth day. Nearly all of the members of the diplomatic corps, as well as many members of the French government, were present The French papers mention that a most de ?tructive earthquake had oecurred in Italy, almost entirely destroyieg the city of Catania.
