The topic is not otly an exciting cne because of the taterert always atta:hed in Virginia to an important ekctun, which fully equals in degree, and is closely akin la kind to tb? ntereet felt heie in a rnce between two blooCed hor*?i, but b< 'iiih ot the undeniable fact that Ik* result of the approtch'og election in Virginia de pends, in great measure, npon th? character of the ticket which is prevented by tne Knew Nothings to the State. V U.i v male an unfortunate selection, they will be killed ac dead as Julius Cs-sar. Even Wise can't sire them Lard as he ?t laboring to kill hi* own party. Thtrc are various rocks on which Know Xothingism in Virginia may ?p!it. One of these I referred to in my last letter If tbe Kcow Nothings at theNoitb permit them ?Ives to be abolitionized. which I hope and believe tuey will sot. the p*rty here are gone suckers certain. 1) it hat is an evil wkich cannot be avoided by Virginia Know Nothings. Ihey mast leave that to their brethren nlne wlir.'i itu are. no doubt equally reerlved with the Know Nothing* of the South tc sustain tiie constitution mm) the Vnioo. Bat aoroe of the <l?Df? r? in their way are within the power of tie Know Nothings to mana/e and avert, anil II the/ do not do it, the fault and responsibility are ?a Uiely their owe. They must avoid, as the; would tbe pJngtt. tak ng up any of those old ;oliticaJ ha:ta who have made prlltic* a trade, and hire ne?er had uy ctb.'r vo.-ation, or any other purpose in life, except M> dubble in a miry political pool, and who care not how muddy the water*, so they caa ride upon the surface. Ie ir ing oat one of theee spavined and odioui creatures woald tie deprive Ki ow Nothingiara at once of ail the tirtiliyt which it now po**ea?os for it* well founded eilauna to being independent of all the eld party kaao etuticna, to being a bran new, froth, virgin aasoc.a'.ion ?f .ktcerican 'reeTen, wboee principal aim is to secure America to American*, and preserve the glorious Union ?f these Kates. We inuet nave men? whether former. y wbigs or demo.-rat* it matters not ? wnoxe past aistory ? ??i wbose character will command the aonfijence of that vast ir^jority of the people of Virginia, who, at th:a mtuif ?t, are willing acd anxious ta support any honest, iel'Uigtnt, firm, wteie- hearted American for the ofllce of Governor ci the (.'ommoneeaUh.

Smith, Kaq., will accept the nomination Ainoig tbe whig* whose names I have heard mentioned is Wm. C. Rive's, a man of national re putation. and who is now living in ret.rement on his tue ? state In Albemarle. I hare no hesitation in *x {ifismg the opinion that Mr. Rives U, at this moment, be first statesman lu Aut>n:>. There is no man who as a even approach him in all tbe qualities of ths gr<at. thorough and practised statesman. He is, moreover, of the uicst aci oinpHtiLel s.holar* in the country? a Snishefl orator, great alike in argument and eloquent**, sad as a diplomatist, ho commanded in France the re spect of tbe Iten.-h (ouit, snd of rhe whole dlplomutie ?erp* at that great world's capital.

Iler Catholic Majtsty 'a Consul, Laborde, occupies a pretentious four story " brick" on Common street, in this city, from the tir<t floor window of which the yellow flag of Spain is seen oc casionally courting the stn ??>i our tojttern breeies. A few days bock, clone 1 c?oor conferences in tbe xauctum of this Consulate put tbe wide awake to their wita, wondering wbat was out; when, )o ! on the evening of tbe 9th instant, a post- haste courier was seen to emerge from the suspi:ionrly closed door, jnirp into a cab and drive to the shipping. It was a special messenger despatched to Havana with " full particulars " of filibusterism, ihe roovesaentn, plana, design*, nchctnes and views of the cbi?fs in theexpudi tion in tile, together wi'h a lint of the forces, their munitions of war, rendezvous, when and whence they wer? to sail, where land, and, in short, the whole wcr?t and more besides. Itlrn with briing and possessing an inkling of facta, looked poiten ous. Men without brain j, tbe head nappliod n lieu with liquor, blabbed outright, tilling all they supposed they know. A brief period ha* elapsed. ao<l the result ot the mission of the hot t ante courier is Concha's proclamation, innumerable arrests in Cuba and missives lor publication inflated with news, reeolution nipped in the bud, grand display of valorous cohort* and du? preparation to receive the to-be-shown-no-mercy ''miscreants," all fieah in each particular paper of thu exc.teraent teeming city, from ' our own upecU/ Havana Correspondent." Now . whether a move was to have been ma'e. or is to )? made, or can be made, some patriotic annexationists, familiar with the subject, may surmise or really know; but the manses, all agog with the spirit of progressive reus, and the eager desire to know* hat's next, are wrapped in perplexing doubt, "caught by the ears at ono catches a pot by the handle. " The tines are rife with momentous projtlx ,ani a deed mast be line. I am tl noet reminded of tlie impotent madman who wanted "a ?iece of wet paper to t-e a-r," and thus appease his ire. 'hen t-ometning fierce and decisive transpires here, you shall be duly posted of the circumstance As an evidence of the "barbarism of tae slave States," I quote the following advertisements, published in our city papers of to-daj Ladikb' Faiii.? Benefit of the Fourth Colored Baptist church, over the Carrolton Railroad depot, corner of Baronnc and Ttrdido street*, First district, to be held at said hall, daily, for one week, from February 1 - to 17, from to ll>? 1'.

They announce ibat they have made every exertion to procure all tbe riehcacieB of the sea>3B. and invite a call and liberal patronage from their friends and the public, at 141 Canal street. This is truly a dark proceeding, and should, nay, will, be looked into. 1 count upon some thousao la givirg it their special attention, and sbo<ld not marvel if a very mug sum of money was expended ;n the investigation. I.o, tie poor Afrlc, whose nntutcr'd mind, Bees God in clouds and hears hJn in the wind. The impartial administration of justice in the Pelisaa State is now becoming a by wtrd, a very aiiom.

Truth is, Baton Rougo cot a thousandth part of the dainties and deli cacies of life to be found In the Crescent City, in which politicians ate wont to luxuriate, and absence and denial but sli&rptu the appetitu. Hence it may be reasonably inftired tbe honorable in quenieu exceeded Charley's idea of discretion, order and due observance of law. With us, who are not exiled, the wonder is, "Can suck thing:-, he, and over ome u* like a summer's cloud," &<:.

The lawyer called on Justice Oabora to diimiae the com plaint. and to grant an honorable discharge to the party against wbom it had been made. The press, he said, had committed a great Injustice in publishing a preju diced account of the matter, and even the justice him self had allowed himself to be swayed too much by his sympathies. Having expressed himself in this manner he went to the Mayer, where he made the same complaint agaiuxt the prees. Be desired to know the decision of hit Honor, and was beginning (o make a speech in b ibalf of his clients, when the Mayor interrupted him and declined to hear anything further regarding it, stating that he had the -testimony before him in the shape of affidavits. He then asked the lawyer whether there was any dis pute as to the fact of 12 haying been received by the parties, and as to the three shilling* which they owed the complainant lor the work she had done t To this he replied lhat there was none as to that, aud was proceeding to enter into the merits of the case, ? hen tee Mayor agniu i idinei hearing hi u. There is, said the Mayor, a general principle Involved in the deci sion of this ma(>r wli'ch is of a groat deal of importing an air< cling s mitr instances. There is, he continued, a clars o' oftem ? k n this city which are so ingeniously committed at to evade any criminal law, and whith are

of the won character Among these he considered the wrong perpetrated upon these poor women was of the worst class. He did not refer alone to this particu lar case, hut a.) cases of the kind were a double wrong. In the flrit piece, it was oppressing that portion of the laboring It axes who had no means of protecting cbnm ealvei. n l bp case of this poor girl a gr.iss wrong had b<en committed n withholding, not only tbe money for the work sbo bad performed, but the deposit of 92, which she had left with the party as security . Here gretted that tBis clans of offenses was not made penal by tbe statute. Before rendering hit decision la this caee he would require them to pay the money to this poor girl. In conclusion, ho stated he was glad to tiud that such offcnoes, if tbey could not bo reached by Ktainte, could, through the medium of newspaper pub lications, be brought before the tribunal of public opinion. The parties here took their leave, with the under standing that the money would be paid to the com plainant, Mrs. Byrnes. A BREST OF A LIQUOR DEALER AND GAMBLHB8. The following statement was made yesterday to the Mayor by John Bradley, of the Sixth ward police:? On Sue day morning, about ten minutes past twelve o'clock, I no ulied Micbael Sexton, who keeps a grocery and liquor store at 61 Mulberry street, to close up his place, (filing him tliat it was the Habbath morning. Be did r.ot do so, and paid no attention to my orders; about half paat twerte I exiled the attention of oltiee Martin, of tb? Sixth wardj to the fact that the home was opeu. We both ordered him to close. He told us to go ahead and dc ihe best we could. While standing at the door, we saw a number of men playing cards lor money on the counter. 1 thin proceeded to the station house for aid, and en procuring it we went to the place and arrested six of tbe men, who were taken to the station house. In the morning, they were temporarily committed by fudge Eogart for examination. At 11 o'clock, the examination took place, ?hnn they were fully committed by Judge Eogait for trial: subsequently they were discharged, during that day. by Ju^ge Bogart. I arre-ite ' the pro Jrletor to-day. Tuesday, for ksep ng a disorderly hou-e. udgo Bogart field him to bail in ?vOO to answer? his own reuogn case* vai taken. This is a very disorderly house, and causes much trouble to the officers. $1 2<t and some cards were taken from the counter by Sergeant Caveny, THE COMPLAINT BOOK. Martin Mnclr. of the ship India, complains that he was defrauded by a moik auctioneer or 116, for a worthless wateb, at a mock auction ?tore in Broadway. Them^m-y was recovered by officer Wines. Mary Byan, of 44 ilamersley street, complaioii that she mailed a letter on Feb 1, 18?>6, for Mr. Ky in, of New Haven, Conn., containing $11, and that the same has not been received. Referred to the Postmaster of New York. Hen*y OiTner complains that his a?b box is full and running over, at il avenue B, and that the as a carts have not otlied for the same a long time. Referred to Commissioner of Streets and Lamps. -H?nry Tjeibold complains that Hagne street is so on enmbered with *now, ice and other nuisances, that it is almost impassable. Referred to Gommisiioner of streets and limps. W. Pennington, of 20 Sixth avenue, complains that Caroline Htedman, a very resnectsble colored wr.uian. waa not al'owed to enter one ot the .-ixth avenue jars at Bin-clay e'reet. by the agent of said car, on toe morning of tbe 2Mb February, she being on her ? ay up town to work a* seamstress, it being a very cold morning, aud aba having come from Brooklyn, conoequontly had bs o<ne cold and fatigued, and wishes a request oi l be made to aaid company to admit and allow such respect able persons to enter and ride in raid fcnth avenue cars.

Referred to Committee of Streets and i?*mps SXa) or Wood and tltt Effect ot Good Clover ri me nt In tlie Country. [From tbe Baltimore American. Feb. 13.] MsyorWood, of Ntw York, has shown how quickly and bow certainly an enviable repute' io-. may be gained by the honest, impartial and persevering discharge of h'gb public duties. The mitance is a striking one ; and whilst it reflects 'be crust exalted honor npon tbe indivi dual, we also recognise in it the sura oridenoe that tbe people of our great citteo are, In the main, and by an overwhelming majority, in favor of the stricte-t, tbe moot unfaltering enforcement of tbe laws It is In this aspect that tbe great social revolution that has eharac ler'iod >ew York ? for so it deserves to bo eat*em?l? is most worthy of notice. Mayor Wood has demonstrated not only for New York, hut for tbe people of every Ameri:aa city, tbat it is possible for them to be well governed ? tbat tbe causes of disorder, of rlit, and of crime, that have grown and stKngtbeee.1 among them, have oot their foundation in any inevitable necessity from which tbey cannot escape ? that the people are well disposed to raBy in defence of law, order ai*d justice, and willing to protect with their countenance and appro bation there who stand forward as their defenders against the social disturbers of a well-disposed, law obeying comrannity. Among tbe victories of whloh peace can boast there ii n.f re worthy of high appreciation than that effort of moTal authority wbiih conquera the turbulent, awn into peaceful obedience the passions of thiee that have heretofore set the law at naught, and exercses over se rret as well as open crime the wholesome fear of detec tion and puniabiaaut. Tbe man who, clothing himself in the trust confided to him by bis fellow cluxens, ac complishes th?se results, is a victor of the proudeU merit: he is, indeed, tbe ''conqueror of a city'' in an eminent sense, and deserves the civic crown of a good name and a revered memory Judging tbe future course of Mayor Ww>d by tuat which be hao so far pursued there fa nothing or forced m applying to him such langusM. He took New Yorli in the very ?cme of her w!ck?dnesp? the law appeared to hiro fallen foweilf?s before the number and the daring of its assailants ? corruption had established a permanent location where rig d honesty ihould have oeen found, and the evil influence of fraud amongst public func tionaries, of eonn vance at outrage and disorder on the pert of professed censrva'tves of the pesce, lad apnarcntly undermined the very foon cations upon which tfce moral and social economy of the city re?ted. 1 he press confessed the city authorities go* tiling or unav.e to attempt a refor-n, and there seemel to lie no hope, except through some powerful and ov?rwb?lm^g populir demoustration, of finding an eth.Unt che :k to the srov.n^ and pionstrous evils by wliirh tfce city afBii ted Sut at the very mom" at that necr?iity had become the greatcs', help wis af forded 'roru an unexpected quarter. It i< not contended that Mayor Wo->l at one effort, and in ?o short a period, curcd all *hase evils ; ?uch an accompllshmsnt would '30 well eirned by a life-timo effort of the strictest reformer. But lie has uone what is almost as vtluable ; he bas proved that tbey arc not incunbl", and that the laws promptly, sternly, and unremlfingly enforced arc equal to tbo ?mergiacy of meeting and le ttraining the concentrated vioe of a gr'a*. city. Be bas pmye.l, too, that tbe pu'ilic officer wbo assumes all the responsibilities and duties of his position, with a manly determinutiou to leave none of thtm unperfrrmed, is sure to secur- the sympathy, ap proval, and suppo-t of the onmmunltjrj tbat whatever may haTt been b's ant. indents, and however gr?*t nuy have he*n the political or per?ooa! animosity en terUined toward him, it will lie ohiiteratxl by the re membranco sf th? benefits received from the soi-l officer, and thit he nuty even oolldently rely upon the zealous co operation of those who have most bitterly oppooerf his elevation. U is tobring prominently forward these resulti that we dwell upon the example of M?yor Wood, an 1 not from the K"-re desire of aditlug to the general cry of approval which has made his name familiar in all parts of tne land. He baa been the Brat to encounter, upon the field ol Its greatest power, tbe evils wbt':b, as all good citi zens hnve seen were becoming more and more fastened upon the line cities of onr land, foe attick was bold ly, succesafuily and resolutely made and the cause of iewand orter reje.ieea ia t:ie result. But the victory will he comparatively barren of benefit If its influence doea rot eitend bejond New York.
