Accident. --On Saturday, a barge lying loaded at Blackwater, Suffolk county, Va., sprang a leak and sank very suddenly, the captain and crew having barely time to escape. She had in 2,500 bushels of corn for Mr. Wood, and 500 for Mr. Geo. A. Wilson, of Norfolk county. The loss is probably not less than $1,000.
Alleged Forgery. --Franklin Richmond, a white man, was arraigned before the Recover on Saturday, charged with forging H. M. Smith's name to two orders--one on A. E. & P. F. Wolfe for $15 worth of clothing, and the other on John M. Higgins, Franklin street, for $2 worth of groceries. On information furnished him, officer Blankinship committed the accused to the first station-house last Friday evening. The Recorder declined to proceed with the examination, on account of the absence of material witnesses. The case will be heard again on the 25th inst.
Affairs of honor. --A duel was fought in Georgia, on the 8th inst., between Edwin Hart, editor of the Tallahassee (Fia.) Sentinel, and a gentleman named Coleman, in which both parties were killed. Rev. Wm.W. Walker and J. E. R. Crabb were arrested in Westmoreland county, Va., last week, and bound over not to fight a duel, which had been arranged to come off with rifles. The difficulty originated in politics.
The Convention. In the State Convention, on Saturday, Mr. Stuart, of Augusta, made a personal explanation touching the letter read by Mr. Wise on the day previous. A Committee on Federal Relations, with Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, as Chairman, was appointed, and a Committee on Elections, of which Mr. Hatmond is Chairman. Quite a large number of resolutions, relating to the National troubles, were introduced and referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Several speeches were made in which there were strong foreshadowing of the course to be pursued by the leaders in the Convention. The Southern Commissioners will be received to-day, and no spectators will be admitted except those who receive tickets. This rule, however, does not apply to the ladies, who will be admitted as usual.
The cannel Coal business ruined. --The discovery of immense reservoirs of oil under ground, needing only the use of an auger to render it available, has utterly ruined the cannel coal business. The works in this county and Taylor are lying unfinished and idle. Meanwhile hundreds and thousands of persons are making money out of the oil business in our neighboring counties. Coopers are in great demand, it being found impossible to have barrels made as fast as they are needed. In a word, oil is the source from whence Wirt and Ritchie and perhaps other counties are drawing vast sums of money.--Marion County Virginian.
