There was an extensive gathering of the people of this county on the 23d inst., it being court day. James Barbour, of Cui peper. addressed the people in behalf of Kemper, Withers and Daniel. Only a few people went to the court-house to hear Bar bour. He spoke about an hour, and in dulged in the usual misrepiesentations of Colonel Hughes and the Republican party. There was no enthusiasm manifested dur ing the entire meeting. The speeches of Colonel Hughes and Chandler here last court day wrought such a change that the Conservatives tremble for old Madison. Madison will astonish Kemper & Co. by the vote she gives the Republican ticket on November 4. Orange County. A gathering of Conservatives took place at Locust Grove, in this county, on the 18th inst. The county canvassers, and also Dr. David Pannell, candidate for the house of delegates, were present.

The people present condemned the efforts of the Conservative leaders to gag ' Oaptain P., and admired his pluck when ;. he would be heard. - New Kent County.

They will he addressed by Hon. Horace F. Maynard, of Ten nessee, Colonel Robert W. Hughes, and General Williams C. Wickham. These names of themselves would be suf ficient to draw to their presence all who hold true Republican princi ples, as well as many of our oppo nents who are honest, fair-minded, and unprejudiced, to hear the truths of the present exciting political campaign vividly presented, fairly expounded, and argumen tativcly discussed.

They appear to mind their own business, so much so as to be almost clan nish, keeping to themselves, although polite and respectful when addressed, fhey are from various parts of the state of Indiana. These "yearly meetings" of the Friends correspond to the church conferences of other denomi nations, when all their church affairs are discussed, all being on an equality, with no delegates, and no particular preference shown to one individual more than anotner. The excursion is under the management of Friend Addison Coffin, a jolly large man, and who seems well calcuLtid to cairy it through successfully, being constantly on the alert to tho wants of all. Round trip tickets have been obtained from Indianapo lis good for one year. The meeting will continue in session about one week. The James River and Kanawha Canal.—The Journal of Industry contains a communication signed "Hen rico," relative to the above subject. Its production is induced by the ''vigorous effort to engage the Federal government, at tho next session of Congress, in the work of completing the James River and 'Kanawha canal,'' evidences of which our readers have lately witnessed here in Richmond and which "Henrico totally objects to. He entertains a most exalted opinion of the value of the canal to Virginia and the United States, and thinks that on the proper representation the latter would finish the work and still leave it in the possession of Virginia. The canal has cost the state ten millions of dollars and is a yearly drain on its resources. Mr. John M. Daniel, late editor of The Examiner, was in favor of letting the water out of the canal and laying down therein a double raHroad track. The Dunlap Case.—A Columbus, Ohio, paper says: "Captain Keeler has received a letter from Alfred Shiftlett, of Staunton, Vrginia, with whom Robert Dun lap boarded at the time of his arrest, ask ing for information as to the murderer of James Carpenter.

Captain Jack's Gun,—Tho gun which the defunct Modoc chieftain, Cap tain Jack, fired during the late unpleasant ness between him and the government, is now in the office occupied by Geneial Davis as his headquarters. It shows the effect of hard service and apparently often came in contact with hard rocks, for it is scratched in every part, scarcely a spot an eight of an inch in extent being untouched. It is one of the old muzzle-luading rifles of the paltern of 1803. The lock-plate contains the following inscription: "U. S. Colt'sPt. &F. A. MfK.Oo., Harford, Conn., 1863." It ii rather an unwiedlv weapon, and i 3 very long— about four and a half feet. Tho barrel alone is forty inches in length. It has three sights, one being f marked for a hundred yards, another for throe, and the third for live hundred yards. The sling is mado of a piece of leather, which was apparently broken in the center, for at that point it is kept together by two copper rivets, and it is fastened in the bands by pieces of buckskin. The upper band is made of tin, and is fastened to tho ock with four small headless nails. This ccc of mechanism is apparently the work of the hero of the lava beds, nnd it shows that he prided himself on how neatly it. was done.— Portland (0.) llulle tin. _————_——I__.——__■———_——— SPECIAL NOI'KIESi. *_f" ANYTHING YOU WANT— From a Needle to nn Anchor, from a German Sto a Penny Whistle, manufactured or raw ial, foreign or domestic production—that 1 bought in New York city can lie obtained cheapness nnd dispatch through ISBON RDICT.GENERAL PURCHASING AGENT, !MOND, VA. sale, PASSAGE TICKETS TO AND FROM IPE BT THE WHITE STAR LINE, the it and finest steamships afloat, and carry he Unitod Hates mail between Liverpool ewYorh.
