to speak elsewhere. Since he had taken the liberty of alluding to his position with his constituents, he supposed he would have no objection to giving the names of those from whom he had received letters. Mr. Goode emphatically denied that he had sought opportunities to speak elsewhere; he had only spoken when called upon by the people to do so. He was responsible for any thing he said, here or elsewhere. Before closing the remarks he gave the names of the authors of the letters--Messrs. Garrett and Dillard, of Franklin county. Mr. Early replied that one of them he did not know. The other was a gentleman for whom he had the highest personal respect, but he was his competitor for a seat in the Convention, over whom he (Mr. E.) was elected on the Union platform by something like a thousand majority. [Laughter] He disclaimed having said that the member from Bedford had "sought" opportunities to speak, but merely that he had spoken elsewhere. Mr. Goode made a brief and

Fourth--If refused, then a peaceable separation. If this last be refused, then let a General Convention be called, in 1862, to act in the matter of separation. This was signed by Messrs. Armstrong, Cook, Corckran. Addison, Sullivan, Watkins, Thomas, Brundige, Sheckels, Garrett, Hiss, Steinemann Watkins, and Watkins, and some 12 others. J. W. Hoover presented the resolutions of Calvert Circuit, addressed to the Conference. They were similar to the last paper. They were made the order of the day with the other memorials. On motion of E. P. Phelps, a committee of 15 was ordered, to which the memorials before the Conference should be referred, that a plan might be reported to secure, if possible, harmony, this committee to be selected by Messrs.

Resolved, That should this be deemed expedient, then said committee shall inquire into the expediency of disposing of the fabrics in the Penitentiary now on hand, and rent out the entire Penitentiary to responsible contractors. The Speaker announced the following as the committee; Messrs. McCue, Fleming, Bassil, Garrett, and Boreman. Aid to Defaulting Sheriffs.--On motion of Mr. Phelps, the substitute "authorizing the Auditor of Public Accounts to release the sureties of defaulting Sheriffs from the payment of damages in certain cases," for special bill No. 146, was taken up and ordered to its engrossment. Mr. Duckwall moved to put the bill upon its passage, and it was agreed to. The roll was then called and the bill passed — ayes 84; noes 3. The following is a copy of the bill authorizing t
$50 reward. --Ranaway from my plantation, in the county of Halifax, near Clover Depot. on the 22d of August, a negro man named William. He is bright complected; about 5 feet 8 or 9 inches high; rather stout; has very large feet and hands; holes in his ears. He was taken up at Keysville about the middle of September, but made his escape — He was heard to say that he was trying to get to Williamsburg, where he was raised. He was sold by Dr. Garrett, of that place, about six years ago. I think it very probable that he is in Williamsburg, or working about Richmond. I will pay $50 reward for his delivery or lodgment in jail where I can get him, if taken up out of the county; if in the county, a liberal reward James B. Carden.

Cappanousic, Gloucester Co.,Va., August 30, 1861. I have just returned on a visit from Gloucester Point. An immense crowd gathered there to-day to witness the presentation of a most beautiful flag to the Gloucester Light Dragoons from the patriotic ladies of this county. It was a beautiful blue banner, bearing on one side the coat of arms of Virginia, and on the reverse the words "From beauty's hand to valor given. " Major Thomas S. Taliaferro presented it in behalf of the ladies, and in a few patriotic remarks explained the motives which induced them to make such a presentation. Mr. John T. Bray accepted, in behalf of the Troop, (of which he is a member,) and in a short and eloquent address assured them that they would stand by that "bright, blue banner," until their last man expired; and the several toasts were responded to by Capt. Jeff. Pope, Major Early of Alabama, John. T. Seawell, Major T. S. Taliaferro, Lieut. Clopton, Capt. Garrett, and Professor Hogg. Jackson.
