omote the introduction of Southern spun cotton yarns into the markets of France, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and Russia. The Convention was largely attended by cotton planters and others. A report was adopted, in favor of making up a complete set of samples of Southern spun yarns to be forwarded to Europe, and of taking steps to obtain accurate information from abroad as to prices, styles, numbers and kinds of cotton yarns saleable in foreign markets. The Convention was addressed by Messrs. Fulton, Brumby, Bayton and other gentlemen. Mr. Bayton made a statement of the financial, commercial and industrial issues, bound up in the political future of the South. He argued that separate political existence, unaccompanied by financial and commercial independence, was but the shadow without the substance of liberty. A resolution was adopted in favor of a Cotton Spinners' and Planters' Convention, at Atlanta, on the 19th ult., --and inviting all the Cotton States, in favor of Direct Tr

The Jura, Kangaroo, Nova Scotian, and Fulton had arrived out. The city of Messina had surrendered to the Sardinian forces. The Hibernia, of the Galway line, would make her first trip on the 26th inst. The French Legislature was engaged in debating the Emperor's address. The main topic was his Orleans policy. Several members strongly denounced associating with the English policy, which had proved victorious in Italy. One member warned the Government against the suicidal policy, and predicted internal danger ahead. All was quiet at Warsaw. Russian troops continued to arrive. The Conference on the Syrian question was being held. It was expected an agreement would soon be decided upon. Dispatches were received announcing that the Mussulman of Syria were assuming a threatening att
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Court day — Speeches — liberal Appropriations — Catholics in the Army — their duty to the South--more troops — the Dispatch, &c Wytheville, May 13, 1861. We had another grand rally at our Court to-day, before a full bench of Magistrates. Judge Fulton addressed the Court in eloquent terms on behalf of the county making a liberal appropriation towards organizing and equipping the military companies now forming throughout the county. He was followed in a speech of much power and patriotism by our friend Robert C. Kent, Esq. late delegate to the Convention, who reviewed the action of that body, the forbearance of the secession party, and their ultimate triumph over the submissionists, who would have this glorious old Commonwealth tied to the tail of a mercenary Black Republican Government. His speech created the greatest enthusiasm on the bench as well as the floor, and received a verdict in the sum of ten thousand dollars from th
ekem and Dr. Preston had been Union men as long as they could remain so honorably, but after Lincoln issued his war proclamation, they were for secession. Judge Fulton, of the Wytheville District, arrived here to hold a special term for Judge Fulkerson, for the purpose of trying Mr. Duncan, who about a year ago killed Mr. G. W. Raine, his father-in-law. As neither side were ready, by mutual application of the parties, the trial was postponed. After Court was adjourned, Judge Fulton and James W. Sheffey, Esq., of Smyth county, by invitation, addressed the people who were present. Judge Fulton stated that he had seized upon the cars a bag of inflJudge Fulton stated that he had seized upon the cars a bag of inflammatory Union documents sent out to the people of Northwestern Virginia, and had had them burned at the Post-Office in this place. He appealed to all to be up and doing; a war stared us in the face; but be not afraid, success would crown our efforts for liberty and our homes. He asked the people of Washington county if they wou

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the Federal troops of Ohio — their Inefficiency--Major Anderson, &c. Cincinnati, May 18, 1861. Permit a citizen of Richmond, now in this city, to give you a few items of news. There are three encampments of men in this vicinity. At two of them — Camps Dennison and Harrison, on the Little Miami and near the Big Miami rivers — there are about 7,000 or 8,000 at each place. Just above this city, in Fulton, on the Ohio, about 1,000. The men on the Miamis are totally undrilled and unarmed, or but partially so. I see it stated in the Gazette here that the inhabitants at Memphis are much alarmed, for fear of an onslaught from this quarter. I inform them that there is not the least danger. They are not prepared to fight here — I mean in this State generally. You will have seen a statement in the papers that the "Hero of Fort Sumter" has arrived in this city. You are aware he is now much lauded for the valor he displayed in
Later from Europe.Arrival of the Canadian. Portland, Dec. 5. --The Canadian, from Liverpool on the 21st ult., has arrived. The Asia, Borussia, Fulton, and Vigo, had arrived out. The political news is unimportant. The Prince of Wales had resumed his studies at Oxford. There was considerable excitement in London on the 21st, by a report that the Emperor Napoleon had arrived quietly in England, and would reach the city that afternoon. Commercial. Liverpool, Nov. 22.--Cotton market opened very dull and declined , and even more on interior qualities. On Thursday it improved in tone but did not advance-closed firm. Breadstuffs quiet — buyers demand a reduction. Inferior wheat slightly declined. Provisions dull and steady. Consols 93½@93. Money sightly easier. The Bank of England has agreed to exchange £2,000,000 of gold, for the same amount in silver, with the Bank of France. A better feeling prevails everywher

utler's hands, at the Tredegar works, and have it ready for service in six weeks, if the authorities will give him authority to do so. The writer does not hesitate to say it will be a great blunder on the part of the powers that be if they decline his proposition, which, if a failure ensue, can only involve the loss of a few hundred dollars, whilst if successful, it will prove a more effectual peace-maker and better champion of Southern rights than all the diplomatists and small politicians in the land I do not know what a board of scientific officers may say about this gun. It is very certain that sensible, practical men, who are good judges, and have seen it work, are warm and decided in opinion that it is a great success, and that one of these guns is more effective than one thousand men, however armed. The opinions of scientific men have almost always been found against all new discoveries. Witness Galileo, Fulton, &c. Progress. Charlottesville, July 2, 1861.
