C., has sent her son, her sole support, to the service of the State. This is akin to the spirit of Mrs. Lewis, (so handsomely alluded to by Hon. Jeremiah Morton in his thrilling and manly speech at the Floyd Banquet,) who, in the Revolution, sent her three sons to resist the attempt of Tarlton to cross the Blue Ridge, telling them if he crossed that mountain, never to see her face again. This incident led to Washington's famous exclamation, in the darkest hour of the Revolution, "Give me but a banner, and let me plant it on the mountains of West Augusta, and I will yet save the independence of the country." And with such a spirit still alive

JoeSegar and Jeremiah Morton came near getting into a personal difficulty growing out of some statement, made by the former gentleman in regard to the action of Virginia. How it ended, is not certainly known. " I wish I was in Dixie" is getting to be a favorite run here. Niggers whistle it, and bonds play it. If "Dixie" means Virginia in the Southern Confederacy, then consider me whistling it all over, If I had a mouth in every square inch from the top of my head to the to of my host. A new, neat, "good

After the ceremonies at the ground were concluded, the people assembled with music and cheers in front of the Exchange Hotel, where they were addressed in eloquent terms by Col. Isbell, Senator from Jefferson county. Proceeding thence to the Spotswood House, the people were again addressed most acceptably, in the Southern-Rights view, by Hon. Jeremiah Morton, and Messrs. Preston, Miers W. Fisher, Sheffey, Skeen of Buchanan, and Hall of Wetzel. During the time of the proceedings at the last-mentioned place, the flag of the Southern Confederacy, (red, white and blue, with seven stars,) was recognized floating from one of the windows, and enthusiastically saluted.

In regard to the proposed Convention, he said it ought to meet and declare Virginia out of the Union at once. He wanted this to be regarded as a part of his political record. The next sentiment was announced, as follows: "The Principle of Coercion — Conceived in folly and born of tyranny; we despise its weakness and defy its power." Hon. Jeremiah Morton, of Culpeper county, responded to this sentiment. He commented with stern severity upon the tardiness of the Virginia Legislature.
