Secession at Ashland. --The citizens of Ashland, Hanover county, made arrangements for raising a secession flag last Saturday, and St. George Tucker was to make a speech on the occasion. We suppose the affair came off according to the programme.
Secession in Hanover. --On Tuesday, the 12th inst., the good people of old Hanover assembled at their Court-House and gave expression to their sentiments in the existing crisis, by the erection of a secession flag.--Amid the approving shouts of the crowd, Mr. James Lyons, of Henrico, in eloquent strains, addressed the people, hailing the flag as a happy omen of a purer and better feeling in Virginia. He was followed in brief speeches by Capt. George W. Bassett, St. George Tucker, Chastain White, Dr. E. S. Talley, John H. Taliaferro, and Dr. John B. Fontaine, who were present, breathing the right spirit and bearing decided testimony to the unanimity of the secession sentiment in Hanover. The glorious old county which was a pioneer in the cause of Freedom in 1776, has resolved to be among the first in asserting the rights of the South, and in a firm determination to maintain them.

Capt. Cabell's Card. --It will be seen by a notice in another column that Capt. J. Grattan Cabell contradicts the rumor that had somehow or other gained currency, that the death of young Henry. St. George Tucker, a member of the Governor's Mounted Guard, was caused by "unnecessary exposure" while on duty. Even if Capt. Cabell did not contradict the rumor on his own authority, it is sufficiently refuted by the circumstances connected with the affair narrated by him. We deem it hardly possible that the parties who started the rumor referred to could have designed to reflect, save by implication, on the commanding officer of the Guard.
There was a time when nearly all the intelligence of Virginia was opposed to slavery. Jefferson has left his opinion upon record; Washington provided in his will for the emancipation of his slaves, and St. George Tucker (the elder) devoted to the subject sixty pages of his notes upon Blackstone, in which he decidedly condemned it. Indeed, so general was the feeling that it may be said all Virginia, during the first thirty years after the Revolution, was anti-slavery. The only stumbling block in the way of emancipation seems to have been the difficulty of disposing of the emancipated negroes. Jefferson himself thought the two races ought not to live together. That great, but eccentric genius, John Randolph of Roanoke, though one among the largest slaveholders in the State, and though wont to resent any interference In 1803 he was chairman of a committee upon a memorial from Indiana to dispense, temporarily, with the ordinance of 1787 so far as it was applicable to that Sta
