Mr Minor objected to the substitute offered by the gentleman from Richmond. A running discusiion w»« kept up between mNiri Minor and N A Sturdivant, touching the re port and eubaUtu e Her Mr Fle«cher, of Jefferson, thought there had bsen much deliberation r,n the subject; he was op posed to baste; but it was his deliberate conviction that no recommendation should go forth frtm this Conventicn or any other Convention, except ote of a prohibitory law character —he was in favor of the substitute, m it contained all ih<*t was essential cn that Doint in the Committee'* report, and con tained other things he was in tavor of. Mr F made a strcng speech m favor of the substitute. E Davis,of Albemarle, was opposed to all partial legislation, as it loat the moral force of a general »w. Kev Mr Isaacs, of Clarke county, was in favor of the original resolutions far absolute prohibition.— The difference of the two substitutes it that be tween tweedledum and tweedle dee. In Clarke ountf all want prohibitory law and mean to have it. It seems to be assumed that th; public are not ready for it How do we know thai? Mr F R Farrar, of Amelia, has always been a friend of temperance—* firm friend of tamper a icc—ha gloried in being a Son of Temperance, and has ever done ao since he first united witb them, which has been a long time. But he was for cau tion—and would say to the Convention, let us be ware of what we do. All ct the eyes of the State were upon us, therefore iet us be deliberate in what we do. Let us enlighten the people first, and then preas the matter. He was in tavor of the substi tute—liked mild measures—was in favor ot persua aion—was opposed to coercion Mr H Ripp'tce, ot Augusta, did not believe in the gentleman's, of Amelia, philanthropy—he never theless admired hl< zeal. He was m favor of the most stringent prohibitory measures, and spoke fully to the subject. The above report brought down the pro ceedings of the Convention to 11 o'clock, on Thursday. The Convention adjourned at 11 o'clock yesterday. The substitute offered by Mr. Sturdivant was adopted.. An Executive Committee was eppointed consisting ofthe following gentlemen : Gen. John H. Cocke of Fluvanna, Capfain Din,mock, Alfred S Lee, Samuel Reeve and Col Thomas J. Evans, of this city; F. N. Watkins ot Farmville; Lucien Minor of Loui sa; John B. Minor of Albemarle; D.

Au((u:t6, 1853. liiiitrial Correspondence. Green Springs, Aug. 4. I ana thus far on my way home, having spent a moat agreeable ten dayi in the moun tains. We left the White Sulphur on Monday last, and stayed that night at the Warm Springs. For the first time, I had an opportu nity of inspecting the famous Warm Spring bath. Truly, a man who wished to spend a summer in oriental luxury, could go no where to secure that olject with a greater certainly of succeeding than to the Warm Springs. The accommodations are superb in e*ery respect. Airy rooms, excellent beds, snow white sheets, and the entire absence of mosquitoes, or other more objectionable visitants, invite to repose • I should lear, only, that 1 should sleep too much, were Ito stay there a fortnight. et there is enough, too, to keep a man awake, and to make him enjoy life with a keen relish. The table is not merely good—it is sumptuous. It h such an one as a priaca might sit down to every day, and bless his stars that it was no worse. I found that the lady undei whose im mediate charge this part of the establishment was, was an old friend and acquaintance of mine, and i was welcomed by her with a cor" diali y which gave zest to the admirable fare. They are said to live remarkably well at seve ral of the other Springs. They cannot live better, anywhere, than they do at the Warm. At least, if they do, I feel satisfied that they keep something to eat of which I never heard, and which Ido not care to see. Then there is the baih—the glorious, sparkling, crystal bath—forty feet wide and five feet deep. Talk about luxury ! Can there be any luxury great er than immersion in such a stream of living water 7 The ssrvanls at the Warm Springs are extremely attentive, and they are so neat and tidy, that it is a positive pleasure to be waited on by them. I fell in, at that place, with a gentleman from Richmond, with whom I was well acquainted, and who pressed me so hard to spend the week, that I found great dif. ficulty in resisting, especially as I had every disposition to do so without any solicitation. The Central Railroad does not pass within twenty miles of the Warm and Hot Springe, I believe ; yet they must be benefitted in almost an equal degree with the rest, by the comple tion of the great line to the Ohio. The Virgi nia Springs form a great system, of which the White Sulphur is the centre. They all pos sess medicinal properties ofvalue, and of such a character, that it seems necessary to go through them all, as through a course of me dicine. First, there re the White Sulphur, to set right the liver and the digestive organs' which, it seems to me, who am no doctor, are at the bottom of nearly all ex diseases. When the functions of these two important organs have been restored, their action must be con firmed, and then come in the tonic waters of the Sweet Springs. Next, the patient must have his baths, etc , which he can get no where so well as at the Warm or Hot. 1 do not know what part the other Springs play in this grand drama of restoration, but I believe each has its part. The reputation of the White Sulphur, however, is, and must contin ue to be, until at least the discovery of other waters equal to them, like the sun in the s>s tem—alone and unapproachable. It is this Spring that has given tone and character to all the Virginia Spring region. Wiihout it, pro bably, the many valuable waters that have since been discovered, wculd have been, com" paratively, unknown. And now, even at this late hour, the prosperity of the White Sulphur is the prosperity of every other watering place in the mountains. Extingaish that, and you blot out the sun—you throw the system into ir remediable confusion. Taken all together, there is no where, upon the face of the earth, com parable to the western part of Virgiuia for its mineral waters. To ir.e it seems wonderful, that people should flock to them in the way they do, considering the difficulties they have to encounter, for the present, let them come from which direction they may. If they were merely in pursuit of pleasure, from the West and Southwest, they might easily pass on up the Ohio, to Wheeling or Pittsburg, without a day's stagiug. From the Southern Atlantic country it would be even easier to reach the grand centres of gaiety and fashion, Saratoga, Niagara, Newport, Canada and the Lakes.— There must be some very powerful motive which can induce them to stage it from Guy" acdotte, on the one side, or from Salem or Mecham's on 4 the other. That motive is, to me, sufficiently palpable. It lies in a simple truth : there are no Springs like the Virginia Springs, there ara no mountains like the Vir ginia mountains, there are no breezes like the breezes of Western Virginia. To drink the waters, to take the baths, to breathe the air, ihs sick will run the risk of being stranded upon sand bars for weeks, will climb raoun tains at the imminent peril of life and limb, will spend days upon bad roads in the most execrable weather, travelling distances which, on a railroad, they would traverse in as many hours. They press forward to the ehrine of health, with all the enthusiasm of pilgrims, who know that when they once reach it they may hope to live. Do not these facts plead powerfully for the Springs 1 Ought not Vir" ginia, while she is pouring out her treasures like water in other quarters, to open the ap« proach to them, the pride of her children, the very jewels of highest price in her crown ?— During the present season, the number of visi ters from the Southwest has been immense, and they have come in spite of every obstacle which it has been found possible to throw in heir way. Nor will it be found at the end of the season, that the crowd has been less from this side of ihe mountains. Already, before I left the White Sulphur, they had begun to pour in ; by rt»ie time the stream was swelled to a deluge, ni thei second of August, the Central Railroad third* T P pa *" BngeM > BU( 1 tt " many on the of - ° have D 0 doubt, the number as treat"' 6 '* *** l< > have been fully - dimiaiahed ].U.« Mm to K«i (bf«u|li our grttt liaea. The mountains now count their vtaitera by thousands. Why not let them be counted by acorea of thousands T Every thing which attracta visiters ia beneficial to a State. They al! bring money, and they apend it hsre, ol course, adding, every one ef them, hia mite to the wealth of the State. In the mean time, there is no limit to the means of accommodat ing visile a in the great Western Empire of the Old Dominion. Let them know that they ere coining, and they can provide for them, though they be as numerous as the locusts of Egypt, and as voracious too "—as wban the votant rod Of Amram'aaon. in Egypt's evil day, \Vnted round the coast, u|-cal<ed a pitchy cloud Of locusts warping on the western breea>, That oer ihe realms of impious Pcaraoli annj Like night, and tokened all the land of Nile " Our legislature holds in its hand the warn' that can conjure up a crowd aa numerous, but of a very different character, every year, in the mountains of Virginia. I truat it may ba its pleasure to try its virtues as soon as possible- After a long day's staging from the Warm Springs, we arrived safe and sound, though aoreiy fatigued, in Staunton, about 9 o'clock on Tuesday evening. Weiound our friends, Mc- Clung 6c Peyten, up to their eye lashes in bu- Biness, Their house was full tooverfiowing be fore we arrived, and we added four full coaches to their numbera. We had not been very long in beiora we received a tremendous accession from the Eastern coaches. I lound Judge Mason and Major Ellis from Richmond, among the visitors. 1 think I hardly ever saw so large a pile of trunks iu a hotel before, and I have been in some pretty considerable hotels in my day. This house must be doing a tre mendous business, and really I think the pro prietors deserve it, for I have never.seen one in which a traveller was treated with more uni form kindness, or in which his wishes, or even his caprices, were treated with more indul gence. Warm advacate, as 1 am, of the Cen tral Railroad, I almost regret to think of the injury which it will do our friends, who so well deserve all they receive at the hands of the public. I trust, however, it will be more than made up to them in some other way, and I feel very certain that such activity as they possess will not ait down quietly and count over its losses, while it has bo many resources open to its exercise. On going up the mountain I took occasion, in company with our friend Sturdivant, of the Era, and several other gentlemen, to get down and pay a visit to the western mouth of the Blue Ridge Tunnel, though I could see no thing after I got there. I merely wished to have it to say that I have seen it. Knowing nothing about the merits of the question, I of course can say nothing about the complaints made against the Engineer with regard to the tardy execution of the work. It is, however, a stupendous undertaking, and it is probab'c that its difficulties may have been underrated. One thing, however, I hope to see done very shortly, and that is the connection of the bridge near Way nesbotough, about which so much has been said, and which is so indispensably necessary to the successful operation of the road projected by Col. Ellett, fhere is another man restored to his proper title,) across the gap. I had hoped to see the cars running to Staunton during the winter, and I am told that t'ley will thus run, provided the bridge in ques tion be put up. I hope Col. Crozet will turn his energies in that direction as soon as possi ble. In Waynesborough, where we took break fast, I learned that Alexander did not exagge rate, in the least, when he gave such an amus ing account of the excitement produced by the arrival of Col. Cih's black horse. The Colo nel is just now the most popular man in all that region. They would vote for him for Pre sident, if he would offer, to-morrow. Nothing, depend upon it, makes a railroad so popular, as the sight of the engine in motion. When we patsed through Charlottesville I learned, for the first time, that there was a grand Convention of Temperance men assem bled there. That accounted, in some degree, no doubt, for the unusually large crowd which I saw about the Railroad House. Among them was our triend Alexander, with whom I had about half a minute's conversation, and was just about entering into a regular chat' when the whistle warned him to go ashore, un" less he wished to accompany us. I took din« ner at Gordonsville, an excellent dinner it was, too, and I was glad to see the worthy proprie tor so well patronised. I arrived safe and sound here among my friends, took an excel lent night's rest, and this morning sat down to write this letter. And so endeth the chapier. H. R. P. The State Agricultural Fair.—Gene •ral Richardson is exerting himself manful'y for the Slate Society, and the Fair next fall. — We see notices of his career in the valley in the newspapers of different places which shew that he leaves nothing undone which he can do tor the good of the Society ; and he can do, we reckon, about as much as any other man. We have no doubt he will strengthen tie Society greatly by assistance from the valley. The Pacific Railroad.—The Journal of Commerce, of New York, is out against the Pacific Railioad on constitutional grounds.— It says that if the government "shall enter into the business of carrying freight and passengers it will constitute a declaration of war Qgainst all the reserved powers of the constitution;" and it contends that the construction of a road for this object will divert the entire revenue of the counfiy for years from the legitimate ob ject to w*uch it is oow applied. The Journal hints that the road is a scheme to divert trade from the Atlantic seuboard to the interior, in the rain hope of making some Western city the point of distribution for the West. The U. S. Navy.—The Journal ol Com merce urged the attention of government to the increase of our naval power, as necessary to secure a due respect for our neutrality, and for our commerce. When our Minister to France complained to Napoleon of the viola tion of our neutrality, under his edicts, which were retaliatory to the British orders in Coun cil, he exclaimed—"Let America declare her rights, and defend them on the ocean with her cannon." ty The anniveraarjr of the embarkation 61 (he Pilgrims at Delft Haven, in 1020, was cele brated iu Plymouth, Monday. Mr. Everett made a speech on lha occasion, which ia at tracting much attention. TOBACCO INSPECTORS.

Conrad— not insured, but loss only $1000. The chief sufferer was the editor of the Fairfax News> who loses not only all his printing materials, but his books and accounts The High Bridce.—The bridge across the Appomattox, on the Southside Railroad, called the "High Bridge," is a very heavy piece of work. The Farmville Journal thinks it will take twelve months to complete it.

LOCAL MATTERS. Dismissed—A warrant Waued at the inatance of Jamea W. Alien, charging Waiter 8. Chandler with aaaaahing him (Allen ) was on yesterday, dismissed by the Mayor at the request of the complainant, and upon payment of costs. A warrant charging Mra. Catharine Ford with using threatening language towards Mrs. Harris, and a warrant against James A. Harris, charging h m with threatening to ehoot Emanuel Raymond* and burn hia(R'i) house, were on yesterday, tried and diimiated by his Honor. The parties lire in and near the famous 2d street A great many witnesses were introduced and the amount of Ihelr testimony waa thit there had long been a neighborhood qjar rel between th 9 Harria's and the Ford'a and K«v mond'a, but no overt breach of the peace hid been committed. It wou'd appear from the many caaea of a similar character to the above, brought before hia Honor, that there are a good many backbiting, contentious people located about Richmond, who, every time Ihey get into a snarl with eacn other about women, child.en, fences, chicken*, dogs, pigs, land titles and water privileges, think they matt come to the Mayor and bother him tor an hour or two with their petty allegation!, childish com plaints and incoherent testimony. If in all auch trivial cases, the Mayor would fine the partiea in good round sums, they might perhapa concu.t their pockets before they consu tad his Honor. In the case of Mr. Raymond, above mentioned> it is due to him to say that it was not at his inatance that the warrant waa issued against Harris- That warrant waa the result of some testimony sff;ctinj Harria's character, given by Raymond in deience of Mrs Ford. Bound Oveb. —The continued case of James Gill, charged with assaulting Jamea Stevenson,on Tuesday evening last, on sth street, came ap in due order before the Mayor yesterday. Mr James Martin corroborated Mr J B Smith's statement made Thursday that Gill followed Stevenson about for upward* of half an hour, threatening ta whip him. Stevenson seeing that Cill was intoxicated avoided him at much as possible until the final attack when he struck him in telf defence. Yes terday Gill frankly acknowledged that liquor had made him act in a most foolish manner. Thesa •'bits of sprees" will bring the boys into trouble some time or other. Gill was required to give se curity ia the sum of $150 for future good behavior, and the case was sent to the Grand Jury. Suspicious —William, (lave to John Shield* of Eearico countv, wai arreited on Thun day evening, with some corn and chicxem in his possession, supposed to be stolen. On yesterday, Mr S s*nt word to the Mayor thai the neirro bad doubtless atolec the chickens, but that business prevented his attendance as • witness. A summons was issued for Mr 8 returnable this morning, and the negro was remanded to jail. Continued.—Tee continued case of Otway Smith, who stands charged with forging the nane of Robert J Pace o! Goochland, to a promissory note for H2lO, came up before the Mayor yesterday but Mr Pace not having arrived from Goochland it was further continued until half past 2 PM. At that hour, Mr Pace still being aosent, the Mayor further adjourned the examination over until Tuesday next, it being understood that if Mr P arrives in the meanwhile he wiilbe recognized to appear before the Mayor on that day. Mr Smith was remanded to jail. Recjveeing — Mies Rebecca Crabin who on Sunday and Monday last, attempted to commit suicide by taking creosote—under the careiul at t ntion of Drs Waring and Hill is steadi y recov ering from the effects of the poison. We are informed also that Wi lism McCready, injured by tne fail of tha deriiek near Rockfield, one day last week, is much better. We have not from Patrick Newman, the other person In. j ured by the same derrick. ExcuasioN.—One good thing very often follows another, and we are pleased to-day to announce that the Caledonian Guard, under the command of the gallant Captain Caskle, wi 1 fciveagraai mili tary and civic exsutsion down the river, in ths'Cu:- tis Peck, on Monday evening the 15th inst.
