pet; but these merely appeared as bright spots on the dark background of the Elizabethan wood-work.--Many lights were burning, but the blackness of the walls and roof seemed absolutely to swallow up their rays, like the mouth of a cavern. A hundred candles could not have given that apartment the cheerful lightness of a modern drawing-room. But the gloomy richness of the panels matched well with the ruddy gleam from the enormous wood fire, in which, crackling, and glowing, now lay the mighty Yule log. Quite a blood-red lustre poured forth from the fire, and quivered on the walls and the groined roof. We had gathered round the vast antique hearth in a wide circle. The quivering light of the fire and candles fell upon us all, but not equally, for some were in the shadow. I remember still how tall and manly and handsome Reginald looked that night, taller by the head than any there, and full of high spirits and gaiety. I, too, was in the highest spirits; never had my bosom felt lighte

Mr. Stuart asked to be excused from service as he was a member of the Senate as well this body, and would be compelled to neglect his duties there if he were to give the attention to this committee that its importance demanded.

Messrs, Imboden and Harman, read yesterday by Mr. Wise, and said he had since read it himself. The on that there was a movement on foot to place Mr. Wise in the Gubernatorial chair.

occasion I allude to was one of great interest and novelty to me, being quite a young man. When I entered the hall Mr. Wise was speaking. I shall never forget his appearance. His stand was on the right of the Speaker; Mr. Adams' on the left. Mr. Wise was pouring hot shot into the abolition ranks generally, and into Adams particularly. It was the first time I had heard Mr. Wise. He was then in his prime. He wore his hair long; he was dressed in a plain suit of black, and he seemed to Mr. Wise. He was then in his prime. He wore his hair long; he was dressed in a plain suit of black, and he seemed to address himself to Mr. Adams and not to the Speaker. I can never forget that fierce-flashing eye; that long, bony finger, shaking tremblingly into the very face of the old lion; and, as the burning, hissing hot words of sarcasm and defiance rolled o feet and cried, "Mr. Speaker," and was about to proceed, when he was called Justify to order, and had to take his seat. "Wise, turning to him, coolly said, be still, old man, I have a few more shot in the locker for you," and proceeded; and of all

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.
