The secession of Virginia.

--The news of the secession of Virginia was communicated to Mr. Pryor at Augusta, as he was departing in the cars for Montgomery. The news was greeted with universal cheering, ringing of bells, firing of cannon and general expressions of joy. At Mobile the intelligence was received with great enthusiasm. Bells were rung, salutes fired, and the people seemed half frantic with delight.
