--This county spoke in thunder tones in general meeting some time since. But a few days since there was a large meeting at Curdsville, at which a secession pole was raised, and eloquent speeches made by Dr. W. J. Epes, E. W. Hubard, J. L. Hubard, T. G. Reynolds, and H. C. Thornton. Resolutions were unanimously adopted, declaring the action of the Convention in derogation of the interest and honor of Virginia — denouncing a Border State Convention as ‘"the last resort of those who would basely deliver Virginia, bound hand and foot, to the tender mercies of her enemies;"’ and in favor of the immediate secession of Virginia from the North, and her union with the Southern Confederacy.
