Western Virginia.

If the New York Tribune desires an illustration of the fidelity of Western Virginia to the South, we commend it to the spirit-stirring speech, on Wednesday last, of James W. Sheffey, Esq., of Smythe, one of the ablest and most influential members of the Convention. We believe that the patriotic and gallant tone of Mr. Sheffey, on the subject of coercion, indicates the unanimous spirit of all Virginia, East and West, mountain and lowland, as the day of trial will incontestably prove.
