NOVEMBER 19. I&SS. KICHMOSD AND YOUK R.VER R AILROad ._ OA Goucester moving. ~.W C are glad to ob serve that a meeting was held at Gloucester Court House, on the 12th of November, for the purpose of inviting the attention aad in voking the co-operation of other counties, to some decisive action with regard to the proposed improvement known and chartered as the Richmond and York River Railroad. A preamble and resolutions were adopted referring to the importance of the scheme, and urging upon the commissioners already appointed the necessity of immediate action. Twenty delegates, whose names we give be low, were selected to attend a convention at King and Queen Court House on the 13th of December next, and all other counties inter ested in the improvement were invited to send delegates to the same convention. -We observe among the names of the gen tlemen composing the Gloucester meeting many of the first citizens of the county in point of enterprise and intelligence, and as they have taken the matter in hand we hope they will push it on with vigor. The following persons compose the delega tion to the proposed Convention : Thomas B. Booth, John C. Hughes, John Leigh, Wm. R. Jones, Samuel R. Medlicott, John L. Hibble, John T. Seawell, C. W. Mon tague, Joel Hayes, Jr., John R. Bryan, Jas. M. Nicholson, John W. O. Catlett, Wm. B. Taliaferro, Edward H. Rnwe, John W. Back house, John Hughes, Wyndham Kemp, Josiah L. Dean 3, M. B. Seawell and Jeff. W. Stubbs. We suggest the propriety of calling a meet ing of our citizens, at an early day, for the appointment of delegates to attend this Con vention. The matter is one of great impor tance to Richmond, and she should unques tionably be represented. This subject will be referred to again. IMPORTANT TO CONTRACTORS. By reference to the advertisement of the Chief Engineer of the Covington and Ohio Railroad, it will be seen that there are to be let, on the 15th of December, seventy-five miles of that Road. Fifty of the distance at the Eastern end, and twenty-five between the Kanawha and the Big Sandy Rivers. The work, from its heavy nature, is considered very desirable. This letting offers a fine op portunity to Contractors. tsF*Ou? friend Alexander, of the Char lottesville Jeffersonian, has our warm thanks for the too flattering notice he has taken of the Dispatch. It is only requisite that his splendid predictions shall come to pass, to se cure to us the blessing of a delicious repose from the active cares of an arduous profes sion in that sweet cove which he describes in such glowing language. He is at present, however, much nearer this promised land than we are, and more likely to enter into all its joys. No man will better deserve them. But really our friend must forget himself in his enthusiastic predictions. Such earthly bliss is not intended for printers. They only have the pleasure of serving the public and working their way through life with such con solation as well meant efforts, without world ly compensation, can afford. Their reward is supposed to be laid up in Heaven —we trust with good reason; for their case, without that hope, would be hopeless. From the report of the President and Directors of the Raleigh and Gaston Railroad, we learn that the receipts for the fiscal year, from freight, pas sengers and mail service amounted to about 8100, 000; and the expenses for the same period, exclu sive of construction account, about 860,000. A diTidend of 3 per cent, has been declared by the Directors, and 80,500 appropriated to the sinking fund. SPIRIT OF THE PRESs". Yesterday's Whig re-produces extracts from the Washington Sentinel for the purpose of showing "the amiable condition of the Democracy.'' The remaining portion of the editorial columns of the Whig is filled with communications, among which we observe one warmly urging the extension of the Lynchburg and Little Tennessee Railroad, so as to make Eltham, on York river, its eastern terminus. The Ezamintr has a leader cn Money Matters, which goes at some length into the general causes of money scarci'y. Passing from the consideration of the condition of affairs ia New York, which it says is the sure precursor and cause of tightness all over the Union, it comes home to Virginia, and thus remarks: Thf re is a local cause operatina in Virginia dis tinct Jrom and additional to those already mention ed. The business of Tobacco manufacturing has been greatly overdone for a year or two past; a'd immense stocks ot the manufactured article aje now accumulated in all the great markets, which cannot be readily sold except at a sacrifice. Hence the eeverity of pressure upon this large class in Vir ginia. The examiner concludcs that while the tightness may last still longer in N. York, and consequently in. tensify itself still more in the interior of the country) it has an abiding faith in the elasticity ofcommerce ( and in the capacity of free trade to work out its own redemption and to achieve its own success. The Mail has an article on Railroad stock, wherein it holds that while the prosperity of a joint stock company may as a general rule be tested by its dividends, the rule cannot be infallible, since at times even the most prosperous enterprises are those which declare but few dividends, owing to the fact that the works are in an unfinished condi tion, and large expenditures are absolutely necea eary to their successful prosecution. The Enquirer publishes, with commendatory re marks, the opinion of Attorney General Cushinsr' in regard to the execution ef the Fugitive Sla\4 Law, which has been approved by the President, and shows that the ad mini-it rat icn intend to stand by those Marshals who are faithful in executing their trust. But, (reasons our cotemporary in con elusion,) the President may speak out and do every thing in his power, to do justice to the South—as his whole words and acts have demonstrated—still he will be denounced by Southern journals as faithless and hypocritical.

Tbe Carrier of the Dispatch on Marshall, Cl*y, Leigh and Jackson streets, beyond 7th street, being sick, tbe subscribers to the paper, residing in that lection of the city, will pleaae call or .end foe their paper« for a day or twe. For this reason they were not served with the Dispatch yesterday. Coprt or Appeals.—Mr. Bocock closed hxs arsmaent «ain«t the petition of Lewi. Monta goe, before this Court, yesterday, and Mr. Fatten will continue for the application to-day. The grounds tk application is based, are these: Firs' was ruled into tri»l by the Circuit Court ? fter for a continuance, having made affidavit that an important witness to his ce hv , SecoD a- the setting aside a juror hJ, Court, who bad beard a great deal of the case ini T-i v-v M heard the evidence, tbe juror doubrl Si„„L , K? b,llty *? « iv " th « Prisoner a fair tria!, 3 . thlt he could decide the case ae- law and the evidence.

A por tion of tbe dealers he says, have endeavored to re sist this monopoly, but have had the wholesale price raised upon them to compel them into terms For merly the price of pine wood was S3 per cord Last vnnter it was advanced to $I—then to So, and now to «>S, with an intimation that it may be much higher during the winter. This exaction bears particularly heavy on the poor, and upon those who cannot store away a large quantity early io the season, and unless steps are taken to counteract its effects, great suffer ing may be produced by it during the approaching winter. If there was any good cause for this sudden r.se in the price of wood, owing to the scarcity, it might be tolerated for a time; but when the fact is notorious that large supplies are coming to market every day, and that quantities of it have been board ed up, rather than it should have been dealt out at a fair price, we think it time that the people were ta king steps ta remedy the monstrous evil complained of. The only way to do this, is for the consumers to unite in refusing to buy from the monopolises, and let their wood rot in their yards. Give a preference to country wagons and to those wood dealers who re sist the monopoly, and thus put a stop to the schemes of those who would starve the poor to fill their own pockets. A few years since, when subscriptions were being sought te the various railroads now terminating in our city, one of the arguments used to induce subscrip tions, was, that they would greatly reduce the price of fuel. How far this pledge has been redeemed, we leave the public to say; but if the President and Di rectors of the Companies will now resolve to offer every facility for bringing wood to market, they can render aid in time of need to the masses, and save the poor and destitute from suffering and from star vation. It the tconcpoly exists, of which our correspon dent writes, the authors and participators of it should be_ made known, that the seal of pubiic reprobation might be set upon them. Speculating upon tbe ac tual necessities af the public, is an act no: to be ove> looked, and cannot be too severely condemued. Coal.—Why is it that coal has risen to such high prices, within a few months past? Is it be cause the pits a-e tailing aad the supply becoming exhausted? Or is it because the dealers have deter mined to make those who use it pay as exorbitantly as they choose to do, knowing that they have no other recourse than to submit to the demand made upon their purses, however great? We would like to hear an explanation given of the rise, because we have been assured that coal can be bought for seve ral cents per bushel less, if intended for shipment, than when it is to be brought to Richmond for retail purposes. If this be true, it is time the facts were made known to our readers, who are deeply inte rested in the matter. More of the Burglar.—Before the Mayor, yesterday, Allen, a slave to Miss Harriet Cat lett of Caroline, was arraigned, charged with enter ing the kitchen of Mr. R. W. Allen, on the night of the 4th inst., with intent to commit a felony, and with shooting Edward, one of Mr. Allen's servants. Mr. R. W. Allen and his two servant men, Edward (called Bosin) and Alfred were called. Their evi dence was just the same as in a former examination, and we shall not, therefore, repeat it. But that our readers may understand the mode of entering the house, we will attempt to describe its situation. The "Arbour" stands at the north-east corner of Main and 12th streets. Upon the first floor are four rooms ; the first of which is used as a bar room, the second as dining rooma, the third as a kitchen, and the fourth for lumber. Alien, on the night in ques tion, after having tried to enter the window on 12th street and failed, (the identical window which he voluntarily acknowledged having forcibly entered on the night of the 26 th of August, and robbed the house of S2OO worth of cigars and other articles; and fox which he was tried last Wednesday on the charge of burgiary, and acquitted by the Hnstings Court,) be then went to the rear of the house, crept under the steps, through a hole, into the fourth room, through a window into the kitchen, or third room, and open ing a door leading from the kitchen info the dining room, which was fastened by a pully, was there dis covered by Edward, who was guarding the house, and attempted to make his escape, but was over ttfkec while endeavoring to get through the kitchen window, when a scuffle ensued between the watch man and the thief, during which the former was shct by the latter with a pistol, loaded with shot, in in the left hand, and severely wounded. The Mayor then called Allen, the prisoner at the bar, and apprised him of the charges on which he was now arraigned. Mr. Mavo stated that he could not send Allen on to the Hustings Court, on the charges now preferred against hira, because he took it for granted that he would be found guilty of the charge upon which he was sent on, the punishment for which would have been hanging hy tne neck un til he was dead, or transportation for life ; but as some gentleman had been kind enough to save him from that punishment, he would now be required to an swer the charge of entering Mr. Allen's house in the nighttime, with intent to commit a felony, and with shooting Edward, a slave. The prisoner was then remanded to jail, to answer at the next term of the Hustings Court. Correction. —In noticing the acquittal of AHen, a slave, on the charge of burglary, we stated that he was tried for entering the "Arbour" on the night of the 4th inst. This was an error. He was then arraigned and tried for entering the Arbour on the 26th of August—the time at which he voluntarily confessed he had entered the house by forcing the window. Dr. Merritt.—We have received a com munication from a member of the bar complaining of our notice of the decision of the Hustings Court last Wednesday, in the case of Alien, a slave, charged with burglary. The writer thinks we have held up Dr. Merritt to public censure for a teas'en expressu n cf a convirntiout conviction. We certainly attributed no improper motives to Dr. Merritt in the decision he gave, and confess our surpr.se that our notice should thus have been construed. Dr. M. is well known in the city, and hardly requires the en dorsation of a public print. We thought then, and think now, that his decision was not In accordance with the law and the evidence, as we understood it, and without intending to 'impute to him improper motives stated that the decision was one that would have an injurious effect upon a certain c'as* of our population. Sellisg without a Lickhsk.—A young man named Augus'us Wilkinson, from the. city of Gotham, appeared before the Mayor yesterday, toan swer for selling ware* and merchandise with out having obtained a license so to do. on the con> piaint of Wo. P. Chatuberlayne The warrant was i sued under section 10, chapter 33, of the Bevued Code of Virginia, which reads thus: 'VNo person, snail, without obtaining a licensees a merchant, sell at any store or place within this state, any goods, wares, merchandise or other articles, ex cept such as may hare been manufactured by the sefer, in thia State, or provisions or com modifies, the growth or product of thU State, or •ome of the United States," ke. gg •. .°j this section, a fine of not less than §20 nor moie than $20C, sball be imposed by the court. merchants, m 4 forwarding their order, to ha*, them fi led This course of procedure was looked upon as an evasion »l the revsnoe law*, and the Mayor esse one of sufficient Importance to be investigated tribunal than i slngle magi* toSSiH merchants from other Stat* are allowed ill" S of «orf. b. rtj-rf. uJ tk.

Miss A. Ince.—Thia is the last opporto mty the patrons of the drama are to have of seeing Miss Ince, one of the few filled young Udiei bow upon the stage, and we therefore advise a general turnout. Since her short sojourn among us, and she came here unheralded, for she had bees upon the atage but a short time, she hai won the applauae of all who have *een her, and will be parted from with regret by rach of our citizen* a* have learned her in teresting history, and had an opportunity of judging of her bright and sparkling histrionic talents. Though a mere novice upon tbe stage, her carriage, pronun ciation and general deportment are almost faultless, while her conceptions of the thought* of her au thor*, are most life-like and natural. We bid her Uod speed in her professional tour, with the earnest hope that the admirer* of the drama in Richmond may goon again have the pleasure of wtlcoainc htr back to tbe board* of the Marshall. The Alarm of Fire last evening, about 6 o'clock, was produced by the burning of a chimney on Shockoe Hill. * Alarm No. 2, which occurred about 7 o'clock, waa caused by the breaking of a fluid lamp at a house on the corner of 18th ana Main streets, which set the window curtains on fire. Damage small. Alarm No. 3.—About 8 o'clock the bells rang for the third time, and the firemen were out in force — The incendiary torch had been applied to a pile of old lumber, at \\aldeV* carpenter shop, north ercd of 7th street, which wa* considerably damaged. The building was saved. Loss small. Hastings Court.—Recorder Pulliam'and Aldermen Wingfield, Bray, Tyrer and Sanxay pre siding.—Dosha Ann Cole, a free negro, charged with making a violent assault upon an old negro slave, named Ann Byrd. was found guilty and sentenced to the Penitentiary for one year. George Jones, a free negro, indicted for remaining in the Commonwealth contrary to law. was contin ued until tbe next term, but released from prison by payinit his fee*. If he does not leave the State now, he will probably be sold into slavery. William Southard, on an appeal from the Mayor, was continued until the next tcrjn and released from prison. Henry Harding, indicted for an assault upon a ne gro. cottinned until the next term, and admitted to bail for hi* appearance. To be Heard.— Anderson, a teamster, in the service of Ellis k. Peer*, was complained of to the Mayor by officer Page, for trotting hi* hone* in the street, giving the name* of wrong gentlemen aa the owner of his wagon, substituting another name for his own, and talking impertinently to the officer when asked questions. A warrant w*i issued for the arrest of the fellow, who will be brought bp and dis posed of this morning, if he can found. ■ ■ 11 1 Continued.—A summons against George Starratt, for obstructfng the sidewalk of Main street, on the night of the 14th Inst, was called yesterday, but continued until to-day at the request of officer Kelley, for material witnesses. Savage.—George, a slave in the service of William H. Grant, wu arraigned tor fighting with another negro In Mr. G.'s factory. The examination was postponed until tbia morning. Dismissed. —Frances, a slave in the ser vice of the Mesara. Haxall, was examined before the Mayor yesterday and discharged, for running hie wagon against John Johnson's cart, while passing along Cary street, and upsetting it, witnesses proving that the cart was not injured, and the upsetting pure ly accidental. Almost Drowned.—A little negro boy, while playing about the boats on the south side of the basin, near the mill, yesterday morning, fell In, and would have drowned in a short time, the water being quite deep, but for a free fellow named Henry Scott, who seeing tbe boy when he fell in, jumped in after him and saved his life. Our informant, wbo witnessed the accident, says tbe rescue was the most remarkable one he ever saw, and that Scott deserves great credit for his daring bravery on the occasion. Codfish Choweer.—We received this morning a smoking dish of Codfish Chowder, fr< m Allen's Arbour, served np in a regular down Kasi style. How codfish can be made to emit as flagrant and delightful an aroma as tnrtle soup, is a mystery which we do not pretend, to solve, but it is neverthe less a feat accomplished by the magical power of A'« len. We make our best love to r> raine host," and recommend his codfish as a rare compound. Metropolitan Hali..—Haworth & Hor to&'a Opera Troupe attracted a large audience to Metrcpo'itan Hall, last and we bavs heard but one expression of the merits of the performance.

Moore ia a comieal genius, of no ordinary stamp: and if anvDody can re-i*t the inclination to laugh at his drolleries, we will give him credit for s desrree of philosoaby we do not possess. We msy further state that Mr. P. Rivers, probably the beet dancer ia the United Sta'es, will appear. Mile. Lefolle, the pretty, graceful danseuse, and C. W. Kendall, the Yankee comedian, will likewise add to the attractions of the exhibition.
