sends us the following correction of the statement: The suit at law referred to was not instituted against "the parties who purchased" the property. It was not necessary to coerce them. They have been anxious to make payment. The tender of it has been refused. A large portion, if not all, or indeed more than all the purchased money has been on deposit in our Savings Banks at 5 per cent., while they are required to pay on their bond 6 per cent. The truth is, the trustees (Messrs. Mallory and Hendren,) instituted the suit for their own protection. "The resident trustees" did not have the wisdom to manage the affairs of the concern in such a manner as to save it from failure and complication. Such a complication existed as required the wisdom and the authority of the Court to secure an adjustment of the claims and decree an equitable and legal distribution of the assets. "The parties who purchased," are gentlemen of large means. It was because of this fact that all
Return. --The battalion which left this place on Wednesday, the 17th instant, for Harper's Ferry 'have' returned home. The battalion consists of the Monticello Guards, Captain Mallory; the Albemarle Rifles, Capt. Duke; the Sons of Liberty, Captain Tosh; and the Southern Guard, Capt. Hutter, of the University. These gallant men were welcomed by the Cornet Band and a vast concourse of citizens, the ladies waving their handkerchiefs and the throng cheering. All the companies returned with new Minnie muskets, captured at Harper's Ferry. We learn that these companies will remain at home only five days, when they will again march to serve on some other field of action. Each and every one of them is eager to meet the enemies of his State and the South.--Charlottesville Jeffersonian.

of these covered a communication from Asa Rogers, of Londoun, informing the Governor that a Black Republican, named Downey, was elected in his Magisterial District a Justice of the Peace; that he ought not to be commissioned, and that if he were he, Rogers, would emigrate to Hayti before he would sit on the bench with him. The communications, with their enclosures, were ordered to be printed. Pursnant to a resolution authorizing the Governor to institute the inquiry, a letter from Secretary Mallory of the Confederate Navy was read, giving the names of officers in the Provisional Navy of Virginia who were either undergraded or not appointed in the Confederate Navy. We believe this communication should have been reserved for a secret session. And therefore refrain from copying the list. This communication was referred to James Barbour's Committee on Confederate Relations. On motion of Wm. P. Cecil, the name of Scott county was ordered to be changed to Davis county, and Buch

therefore, be a test as to the sense of the Convention in reference to the duration of the session, as it looked to a speedy adjournment sine die. Mr. Price, of Greenbrier, opposed an adjournment until the State Constitution was thoroughly reformed and submitted to the people for their sanction. This subject evoked a lengthy discussion, in which the old Constitution, the elective franchise, popular rights, and be "dear people" generally, were thoroughly discussed. Messrs. Morton, Mallory, Haymond, Bearch, Carter, and others, took part in the debate. In the course of the discussion, Mr. Hall, of Wetzel, said that, as we have severed our political connection with the Yankees, we ought to go the whole figure, and abolish everything of Yankee origin or Yankee tendency. Our old Constitution was decidedly of this character and we should abolish it or reform it before we adjourn. By general permission, Mr. A. H. H.
