Virginia PollUea. Or* KJCHMOND CORUSrONDBNOC. Richmond, March 24, 1856. J*? Proffrut ef the Camnu?Tkt Secessions from the Whift and /row th* DtmocraU?The Filing in Che WUU. <te. 1 gave you In ray U?t a sketch of our candidates for (?rernor, Uauteaant governor, attorney gwnsral, Md aaauniraioner of the bona of public works. I have now t? my that, as the news comes in from *11 quartern of thi* *'^*^7 extended State, tho nominations are every where responded to in the most satisfactory manner, Ike whig* of the State are generally satisfied. Her# and there are some stiff-backed old fellows, who lore a demo wat as the old boy loves holy wat?r, and who vow tber ?annat go a ticket with one whig and three democrats on H. Some of them, perhaps most of the few who thui talk, are perfectly sincere In this, but there are also aame who. if their particular friend had betn the "one whi^," could have swallowed with gr?at esse three or tfcraa doien democrats. As a general thing, the whigs ?I the Stat* are delighted with the ticket, and the inde pendent democrats stand up to it in a solid phalanx. Iha Enquirer, of yesterday, made a great shout of tri uapb over the fact that Thomas J. Michie, of Staunton, wham it pronounces the first lawyer of the first bar of Virginia, and who wan formerly an unflinching whig, has announced his determination to support the Wise ticket 1 eheerfnlly admit all that the Enquirer can say in favor ?f Mr. Mich ton' talents and virtues. lie is an ornament to a bar which waa once graced by the mighty intellect ?f the Ulustrions Daniel ShefTey, and at which Johnson, Paytan and Baldwin exerted their lofty powers. Bat if w* Lave lost Michie, who is the bead of the Western har, have we not gained Patton, who is the head of the Eastern bar' Moreover, Michie Is not a recent acqui. ?Won io the democracy. He refund to vote for Scoit, and, as I doubt not, from conscientious motives. Now, a* a get off against an accesion here and there to the de ?socra'y, the rank and file of the democracy are desert ing the Wise standard by multitudes. The Wise papers kave got up a cock-and-bull story about there being but one democrat in the Winchester nominating convention, ?a rest being all whigs. Now, Sir, although I have no personal knowledge of the fact, I am informed by high and undoubted authority io the Order, that of this con vention, which consisted of one hundred members, ilfty ?wo were whigs, and forty-nine democrat*. 7 hat ia a tact, and those who feel interested in the subject may with confidence adopt it as the basis of any calau. Jatkm* they irfty see fit to make. This fact, as well a? the nominations thtt were made, show that party tie* were forgotten, and that the Know Nothings were looking to the most competsnt men for the service of 'he State, and not to the political asoendancy of either ?f the old parties. Fram all quarters we hear of prominent rrewbers of ?e demacratio party bolting in the most opsn and de laat manner, lieale, Patton, Morris, the Know N'o nominees, are all old line democrats.

The rapid increase of foreign im migration is well cal culated to excite alarm, and the power of the govern ment both State and federal, should be exerted to check it It xrma almost impossible to doubt that the laflox of between four and five hundred thotsand foreign?rs into our country annually will ultimately be subversive of eur republican institution!. Washington, Jefferson, Madison and Jackson gave early warning to the coan try of the danger to be apprehended from foreign influ ence. The naturalization laws should either be repealed or so modified, and inch restrictions Imposed, as to avert the evil. _ Tbe South i( especially and deeply interested in this question. This immente and annual addition to our population settle in the non-alavthslding Mates, and the extensive territories of the Wt?t and Northwest, out of which free States will, in consequence, be more speedily formed, increasing with fearful rapidity the balanse of power against us. ? Intimately connected with this question ofToreign im migration is the growth cf the Romm Catholic Church in our country. Despotic, prescriptive, and intolerant, its ascendancy, as all history teaali* a, has ever been de structive of medom of opinion; and while I would un compromisingly oppose any interference with the rights if its membxra as citizens, by any legislative enactment, yet by a full and independent exercse of the right of ulTrogi', and the appointing power, they should bo ex laded from the offices of the government in all its de partments. It may be said that thsre are comparatively few fo reigners and Roman Catholics ia Virginia. (She is not acting for herself alone. She is a leading member of thla great sisterhood of States, and her action will be felt for weal or woe, by them ail. Her destiny is identified with theirs, and she cannot look with indifference to the fact that tie great valley of the Mississippi, watered by twenty thousand miles of navigable rivers, and the im mense and fertile territories, M retching beyond to the Pacific, capable of sustaining a population of one hun dred millions, are rapidly filling up with this class of people. 1 will advert particularly to one other principle of the American party ? the " non intervention of the federal and State governments with themunicipal r.fTaira of each otter." The strict observance^ this principle will make the ULicn of the States perpetual. I shall not have it in my power to meet the people of the State ?nd discuss these questions with the/n faae to face. It !s cow about sixty days to tbe election, and if 1 were to devote every day to the canv.-. s?, I should not bo ?.ble to visit much more than one third of tbe counties. An additional, and with me an important reason, is, that I shall bo fully occupied in the preparation for, ani attendance upon the courts in which I practice, until the t taction shall have pas-ed. If, with three opinions and tliis position, the people of Virginia hull elect me to the distinguish 1 office of Go vernor of the Commonwealth, I will db -.barge its duties with fidelity and what ability I possess I will endeavor to advance the prosperity, guard the honor and protect the Interests and Institutions of Virginia, by all the power vested in me, and I shall do all that I can, consistent with her inter* ft and horor, for the preservation of the Union. THOMAS S. FLOURNOY. POLITICAL M4TTEHS IN VIBGIKIA. Hon. Thos. H. Bayly, of Accomac, has come out in a letter announcing himself a democratic sandidate for re election to Cougreit in the First district. Be says he will, upon the hustings, express his opinion* in the faoe of Us late constituents, upon a'l the questions propounded to him, snd in the meantime declares that there has un dergone no change in his political opinions. Mr K. T. Hupp, of Accomae, i? also spoken of as a can didate for Congress by the American party. The canvass In the Fifth Congressional district, be tween Messrs. tlui'iorne, American, and Bocock, dem., promises to be quite snimated. Tho Washington I'nitm admit;- that tbs nomination of Henry A.

Breckinridge declines making a canvass for Congress the present yt ar:? % Lextnotox, March 17. 18C5. 7 have observed that the county meetings ana the de mocratic press of this district havn expressed a prefer ence for me is the nominee for Congress, and perhaps I am justified in supposing it to be the desire of my party that I .'hail strain tie a candidate For nearly a year 1 have fore area that it would not be in my power, at pre sent, to inaio arother canvass; and I should have ma le this . unuunccmeni earlier, but that it seemed to me more decorous first to complete the term for which I was elected. At the ?arliest moment after my return home, 1 aomninDlcated this conclusion to the oelvgat?a irorn tho district, assembled at the Pemocratis State Con vention, and now make It moro public in this form, that the democracy may lake the proder steps to select a can didate. Feeling strongly the bonds of pcl.tical and personal friendships, forged in the heat of anient contests, nothing li-ss than the most controlling reasons ooull in. ,duce ae to decline the canva.iM. These reasons are purely private and domestic, b'lt thoy are such as the obligations of honor and duty do not permit m? to dis eeard. And in asking, for the present, an honirable discharge, 1 hope It is not improper for me to say here, t hot I do it wilh a heart, full of gratitude to the peoplo of this district for their unwavering confidence, and the teinembranje of thair kindness will be che rished by uie with enthusiastic memory until the pulses ol life forever cease to beat. To my political opponents 1 desire to express my a? knoaledrments for tlie general fairness and courtesy of their coura? in conflicts characterized bv great exiite meat. If. lile myeelf, they feel no sting in recurring to tlio past, I am sure we shall jog on together in social life with reciprocal sentiments of good will, lu.'.eel. the old whig par'y of the Ashland di?trlct was a bold and manly party, and for my part, 1 have seen itsumn'er its name and lower Its Hag with regret. We retire from the field ! together; but should it ever be my fortune to re appear on the political theatre. I shall be happy to walcome our ddfricnd.s in their old uniform? of whom, at least, it could be said that under the name of wh gt they offered a lair field and an open encounter. JOHN C BRECXENRTDOE.

The Govern ment Statements of kit Victory at Iguala entirely #W* ?Humeri that he Intends Leaving Mexico ? Reasons for Crediting said Ru mors ? Revolution Expected in Yuca tan ? Official Changes and Movements ? Fears qf the Kinney Expedition? The Governor of Mexico? Line of Steamers Between Vera Cruz and Havana ? das for the Capital ? Passengers by the Orisaba? Business? Finan cial Distress of the Government, de. dc. Although I pro mi ted on my departure to writ* to 70a often, moving from one place to ahothcr hu prevented me keeping my promise. I have now, however, some news to tend yon, and hasten to do so. General Santa Anna, accompanied by Oeneral Blineo, bli Minister of War and Marine, loft the city of Mexico on the 26th ultimo for Cuornavacca. ' It waa stated by the government press that the cangf of his absence was mainly to re-establish his health ? that he was going for a few days to a warmer climate, aud at the tame time desired to be ncaror the focus of the revolution, and be able to dictate prompt and energetic meat ares to check it. Seme of the newspapers even feared for his Serene Highntps's life, as he might, In the heat of passion, ex pose himself to all kinds of privations and fatigues. It is to be observed, however, that before his Serene High nets left, his troops, and even the majority of his body guard (Qvias de S. A. S ) bad left, with the intended purposed- according to the papers ? of attacking the re volutionist*. Geo. Woll, a Frenchman, It is said has also accompanied the one-legged hero. On the 6th Inat. the only paper in the city, (El Eco del Comercio) published an extra, giving an account of a battle won by H. 8. H . over the rebels, and the capture of a city ? Alvarez and his ton having had a very narrow escape. The same paper also stated that Col. Moreno, who had passed over to Alvarez with the column under his command, had been captured by some of Santa Anna's tioops and shot; itnd that his Highness was about re turning to Mexico city. But the trnth of the whole affair is, that there is no such battle won or fought, and that Santa Anna himself caused said report to be made out and spread, in order to entertain the public attention while he retreats to Tampico, where, it is said and be lieved, he will embark in the English mall steamer for Havana or Jaa1 aca. His wife left Mexico city some day s ago, taking v.ith her several articles of furniture, and it is believed she went away by the last trip of the English packet, which left hore on the iifth instant. And this report is further to be credited on account of a rumor current here that on the evening of the 3d instant Madame Santa Anna had arrived in Vera ?ruz. and being cheered by the Guards, she stated her wian of passing unno ticed. A carriage belonging to Gen. Santa Audi, and three mill ons of dol.&rs, were embark e 4 on board the British mall steamer which left on the Itb. A revolution is daily expected in Yucatan, of which State Gen. Ampudia, of fried oil memory, Is at present Governor. His two nephews, Col. Enrique and Francisco de Ampudia, together with several officers, are here awaiting the arrival of one of the Mexican steamers, at present on the Rio Grande, to convey them to Cam peachy. Gen. Ampudia lias asked of the government to send tee steamer Iturbide to cruise on the coast, so as to help him, in case of any movement, to keep the poor Yucateeos down; but it is most likely they wilt not send any steamer tteie before the revolution breaks out. Gen. ilarln, the' new Governor of the Island del Car men, residing at 1-aguna de Termmos, has sent over a delegation to tbe government, with n view of making them acquainted with the necessities of the country, and authorize liini to establish a dosk yard and a navi gation school at J.aguns. Mr Lara, the Captain of the poit of Lag una, is a member of the delegation which arrived here last night in tbe French packet Frungia y Mr.jico. Tii* re have been some changes lately in this quiet and old city of thy turkey buzzards and aoukeys. Josu M. Fspino, Ciptaiu of thU port, has been removed, and ap pointed Commander General of the Poutbera depart ment, residing at fan Bias; while lieutenant Miguel Bousquet (formeily of the Venezuelan navy under the Pacz administration) has been appointed in the place of Fepico. Commodore Valle left on tbe l.r>th of February for the city of Mexico, to return m fifteen days, but at latest accounts be had followed Santa fcnna to Cucruavaci. His place of Comnmnder General of the Navy is pro visionally occupitd by Captain Mateos. lhe sU liners Iturbide and Santa Ansa, which left for the Hio Grande on the 15th and 17thoT February, are daily expected with troop:' from Vfatamoras and Tampico. They took with them $100,000 to pay the troops in Mata mnras. Tbe government here has entertained so no fears that the Kinney exptditicn was destined to iuvade dome of th? norttun frontier of this republic, in connection with Caravajal's plans ? at least 1 have keen told so by a person who holds a high oUlce under the government. Gen. Corona, the Governor of this State, U frightened to death on account of the rumors nil at He cannot eat, drink or sleep, at ease.

A generil denial of all the allegations set up in the compUint was made by the counsel for defendants, Mensrs Sanford and Brace, and a motion was made to dismiss the com plaint as to the three iirst causes of action mentioned in tte complaint, on the ground that they did not set forth sufficient cause of action; tbe motion, which w?s at first denied, was subsequently granted, after the evidence was in; and the counsel for plaintiff, L. 8.

The Railway Committee of the Legialature of Massachusetts have reported a bill to the House iu iavor of loaning the credit of the State to the Ver mont aid Massachusetts Railroad Company for one million of dollars. The report was unanimous, and has been ordered to be printed. Advices from the Albton mine of FortageLike to the 1st of March, have been received. Up to that date the product of the mine bad averaged about sixteen tons of copper per month. The company have sixteen heads of stamps at work, with an increased force in the mine, while thi Iile Royale, Portage, Quincy, and others have been compelled, while their mines were looking well, to reduce their foroe, or entirely suspend, on account of the embarrassed oondltiin of their treasuries. The Albien company intend to increase its operations and send np during the ap proaching season of navigation, forty-eight head of stampB. From present appearances Captain Ed wards thinks he will ship at the opening of com munication, from fifty to sewtnty-flve tons of cop per, and during the summer over one hundred aud fifty tons.

Also, have opened on the vein one mile north of present work ings, finding the vein good. The Eagle River and Humboldt mines, near, the mouth of Eagle river, have cut down forces, bat are at work upon good veins. The Norwich and Windsor mines have improved great ly. In U(e former they have a large moss exposed, which will weigh twenty or twenty. five tons? some esti male it higher? but the above ftgurea can be relied upon. ThiB mine ban now 100 tons at their landing, and the Wind'Or has 26 tons. The Forest Vein is improving west. The product for January was 22 tons, stamp and barrel work, They bave 24 brad of stamps working, and will dress 30 tons this month, including barrel work. They commence* working 24 head of stamps the 1st inst., and the ma chinery works splendidly. The Toltec is looking first rate at every point; they bave just taken out a mass weighing sis tone.

The line of discount* is expanding rapidly, and i? now neaHy np to the highest point of last year. Bince the 30th of December last-a period of only abont three months- the regular discount line of the banks of this city has increased nearly twelve mil lions of dollar*, la tfcf aaac ilajejbe amount ef 88,626 90,218 86, '.>51 12,449 .'?0 148 93,462 93,887 311,297 492,72* 250,467 158,257 100, t'.?5 113,210 102,271 specie on hud bM increased about tbw ud I bitf ' miliums of dollars. The expansion in bank credit has not been on account of the eommevdai comma* nity. The mercantile claaaea have not bean appli cants for money at the banks, for business haa beefl so contracted that iole oapltal haa ben accumulating In the hands of the merchants. There ia not mora than one half aa much boatneaa doing no* as at this time last year, and tbe aeaaon ia about over. Thfl banks hare for aome time past bsen ia want of first class bniineu paper, and ooold not get it. The) have therefore been compelled to loan largely od Btocka to give employment to their meaaa, and it Ig this that eeros to sustain the market value of cer tain classes of fancy stocks. Sa long aa tbe banks keep so much specie on haul, so long must they keep up an extended line of discounts to squeeze out even fair dividends. The Baltimore American gives the following synopsis of an important case affecting a prominent mining company, about earning np in the United States Circuit Court, at Philadelphia:? A moit important trial is about to be brought before tbe United Mated Circuit Court, at Philadelphia, ia which Dr. Tallmadge F. Cherry, of Baltimore, is tbe claimant, and which Involves In its issue a line mine valued at aa amount of money reashlng to miUMma of dollar*. It appears that Dr. C. claim* title to certain zinc mines in 1/ehigh county, Pennsylvania, as assignee ot the Bret and origin*! lease given by a German named Uberouth. After the value of the mines was ascertains), certain parties of Wall street, New York, by paying a large bonus, obtained a second lease, and formed a cor poration known as the Pennsylvania and Lehigh Zinc Company, which isBuod stock to the amount of oil mil lion of dollars. The whole of the stock was taken by parties residing iu. New York and Philadelphia. The ap plication it now made for an Injunction to restrain tbe oompany from working the mines; for a receiver, to ac count, 4c. The defendants attempt to invalidate th? first case, and set up the second, that forming the basis of the company's claim; and unless sustained, the Pennsyl vania and Lehigh Company will be another example of Wall street financiering. The case came up on Friday last, before Judge Kane, but the trial was not proceeded with, because of the defendants not being ready to answer the allegations of the plaintiff, which cover up wards of one hundred pages. The case was postponed for oae week, when it will b* taken np for trial. Milton Whitney, Esq., of thU city, F. C. Brewster and W. B Reed were present an counsel for plaintiff: and 0t. O. T. Campbell, Esq., an 1 Judge Mallorv, for the defendants. The cace will Involve a good deal of Interest, and the legal talent employed will thoroughly silt every point of law bearing on the question; and, If we mistake not, the legal representative from our city will prove himself fully equal to the solution of th? most intricate polaia of law involved in the trial.
