Our Circuit Court is now in session, his Honor Judge Gilmer presiding, and has just fairly commenced upon a large docket, upon which there are, all told, over five hundred cases. The Grand Jury is now in session, and is doing a big business. To-day an indictment was found against a man named Dodson, for advising and inciting negroes in this State to rebel and make insurrection. He was examined last night, and the proof was as follows, almost verbatim: Dodson was overheard to tell negroes in their cabin at a late hour of the night, "that the children of Israel were in greater bondage than they, (i.e., the negroes,) and that they threw off the yoke of slavery by themselves; that the negroes of St. Domingo had overpowered their masters and set themselves free, and that if they (the negroes of Virginia) would only be determined, and show that they w

Correction. -- I am informed that it is still asserted that I was the author of the editorial from the Whig, which was read by Gen. Kemper in our discussion on Wednesday evening, and that it was signed by me. It is not true that I wrote the article. I so stated at the moment, and supposed all heard me. Gen. Kemper did not assert that I was the author. I dislike these personal explanations, but it is now rendered necessary by the misrepresentations busily circulated. In conclusion, I say that any one who asserts that I was the author of that piece or who asserts that at any time, in any way, or to any one. I have ever uttered or written anything adverse to Judge Douglas, asserts that which is utterly and absolutely untrue. no 3-- 1t John H. Gilmer.

the Convention by presenting a candidate. This is proper. I only wish an abler and more enlightened man than myself could have received the nomination. It is a fact undisputed, that the honor, never before enjoyed by the Opposition, of securing the electoral vote of this State, was attributable entirely to the "Douglas men," Why, then, should they be now overlooked, in the very first effort at conservative action, rendered necessary by the recent Presidential election? I will do all in my power to see that your rights are properly respected and duly considered. I accept with diffidence in my own abilities, but with an honest and grateful heart, the important trust you have reposed in me, and have only to say, in addition to what I expressed in my recent letter to you, that I am seriously in favor of referring the action of the Convention back to the people, for their revision.
