Gov. Letcher's communication. --In another column will be found an extract from a late communication of Gov. Letcher to the Convention, upon a subject of universal interest. The whole country, and the army especially, will emphatically commend the recommendations of the Executive, who, we may add, has been behind no other man in the country in his laborious and faithful devotion to the Southern cause. Gov. Letcher's communication. --In another column will be found an extract from a late communication of Gov. Letcher to the Convention, upon a subject of universal interest.

Virginia's contributions to the war — the Governor's views of Extertion. We append that portion of Governor Letcher's recent communication to the State Convention from which the injunction of secrecy has been removed. The report from the Ordnances Department, to which allusion is made, exhibits an amount of material aid furnished by the State of Virginia which would astonish those who have been led to believe that the old Commonwealth has proved herself a "slow coach" in this campaign and my appeal to the convention to interfere. The volunteer who receives only eleven dollar per month for his services, cannot afford to supply his family with salt at from $20 to per sack, and shoes, clothing, etc., in like . Men who are neither contribution physical nor pecuniary aid to the constitution of the war, should not be allowed to reap exorbitant profits. I suggest, therefore, with great respect, that this subject should claim early consideration. Respectfully, John Letcher.
-Whereas, a vacancy has occurred, in the representation of this Commonwealth, in the General Assembly, by the resignation of James G. Paxton, the Senator for the District composed of the counties of Bath, Highland, and Rockbridge: Therefore, I John Letcher, Governor of the Commonwealth of Virginia, do hereby require the Sheriffs of the said counties to hold elections in their respective counties, on the 12th day of December next, for a Senator to fill the vacancy aforesaid. Given under my he Commonwealth of Virginia, do hereby require the Sheriffs of the said counties to hold elections in their respective counties, on the 12th day of December next, for a Senator to fill the vacancy aforesaid. Given under my hand as Governor, and under the less seal of the Commonwealth, at Richmond, this 18th day of November, A. D. 1861, and in the 86th year of the Commonwealth. John Letcher. By the Governor! Geo. W. Munford, no 19--4ds Sec'y of the Commonwealth. Lexington papers copy.
