county of Botetourt; to incorporate the Newport and Gap Mills Turnpike Company; to amend and re-enact the second section of the act passed May 11, 1852, entitled an act to authorize the construction of the Wolf Creek Turnpike Road, in Giles and Tazewell counties; to incorporate the Old Dominion Mining and Manufacturing Company; refunding to Jas. A. Russell excess of taxes paid by him, and authorizing the County Court of Frederick county to correct erroneous assessment.

Strong secession speeches were made by Mr. Thornton, (Bell elector,) Mr. Dickinson, (Breckinridge elector,) and Col. Bolling, a leading Douglas man. When the vote was about to be taken the chairman urgently requested that every man present would vote distinctly aye or no, that the sentiment of the county might be fully no, that the sentiment of the county might be fully known. Upon putting the vote there was a general shout of Aye and one solitary no. At this stage of the proceedings Mr. Dickinson arose in the bar, and renewed the request that if there was any other gentleman in the meeting who dissented from the resolutions he would signify it by voting no. But no other "no" could be elicited. So Prince Edward may be set down as perhaps the most unanimous county for immediate secession in the State.
