Political excitement in Accomac.

--At the election for a member of the Virginia State Convention in Accomac county, Mr. Curtis, Conservative, was chosen. His opponents have since held a meeting expressing their want of confidence in their delegate, and requesting Hon. Henry A. Wise and M. W. Fisher to act their representatives in the Convention. The Norfolk Argus, which states the above facts, adds that there was great excitement at Pungoteague on Saturday last; W. H. B. Custis, (the Union candidate,) Judge E. P. Pitts, Dr. Geo. Tyler, and Fred Douglass were burnt in effigy, by the people.
