Sci.pui'H.? Company "C," Guard of the Commonwealth, Lieutenant J. V. Bidgood commanding, returned to the city at 4.30 A. M. Sunday, by the express train, after having spent a most delightful week at the Greenbrier White Sulphur Springs. Lieu tenant Bidgood did not carry the full strength of this fine company, many of the members being unable to leave their places of business at the time. Those who did so, however, have returned greatly pleased with the trip, and are doubtless anxious that it may be repeated at an early day. The com pany was quartered at the White Sulphur in the basement ot t*he Methodist chapel, where they received every possible attention. 'Du ring their stay the band at the Springs kindly served the company at drill and dress-pa rade every attcrnoon, and on other Oc eanians when requested. The Rich mond military, hut especially this crack company, seem to have made a decided im pression upon the lady-visitors at the White, to say nothing of the others. The fact is, the girls ?? made quitca fuss" over our Rich mond boys, and were not sparse in their eonipliuicnts or attentions. A number of the members have returned minus several brass buttons, while others had even their epaulets taken from them, much to the detri ment of the soldier-boys' pocket-books, une young lady, 3Iiss Thomas, of Philadelphia, a belle of the Springs, was so much fasci nated that she went so far as to request au introduction to each mem Iter of the com pany, and even wanted to become an hon orary member. This compliment was, of course, paid her, and she was saluted ac cordingly. (Mi Friday a photograph of the company was taken, and a copy kept at the White as a memorial of their visit. The soldier-boys appeared in full uniform at the grand dress-hall on Friday night and created quite a sensation. Upon leaving the Spring-, Saturday night, the company pre MMih-u their surplus quartermaster stores, consisting of buckets, candles, <fee., ?fce., amounting iu value to about thirty dollars, to Rev. B. S. Highly, pastor of the Methodist chapel, in which the company was quartered. Nothing occurred during the entire visit to mar the pleasure of the excursionists, aud i heir trip to the White Sulphur this summer a ill doubtless be long remembered by all who enjoyed it. Dkii.l and Insfkition.? In spite of the bail weather there was a good attendance at the drill of Company A (.,ee Guard) ut Old Market Hall last night. Lieutenant-Colonel Whitehead inspected (he company, and they returned their old. arms to the State. The company was in uniform, and everything was in soldierly order. A Coon C'kop ok Wheat.?On the Presque Isle farm, on James river, this year, the fol lowing wheat crop was raised: Seventy acres ! sowed in amber red produced i.iMJO bushels, I and it'/ acres sowed in early white produced 1,7<V> bushels. The above wheat weighs 63 pounds to the bushel. Sunday-School 1'ic-Nic.?The Sunday school ot Leigh-Street Baptist church will hive a pie-nic at West Point to-morrow I week. Mr. J. 1*. J list is is chairman of the committee of arrangements, and he and his associates will see that all who attend have an enjoyable time. Conskkvativk City Committee.?The Con servative City Committee will meet this eve ning at 8 o'clock, at headquarters, to receive the report of the sub-committee uu arrange ments lur the muss-meetiug. I'akade.?The Christian Sons of Peace, a society composed of colored jKTsons of this city, paraded yesterday. A IVote from ilie Adjutant-General. To the Ediiors of the Dispatch : In your paper of this morning is an Article headed " The Richmond Grays," iu which it is said "it was expected that the company would be inspected by the Adjutant-General of the State, but he did not uutke his ap|>ear anee." I do not fear being suspected of neglect of duty, and should not reply to this but to say that my absence was not voluntary, uud in volved no intentional neglect or disrespect towards the otlicers and members of a corps which J have always held in the highest esti mation as a model for the citizen-soldiery of Virginia. 1 so reported it officially to Gov ernor Wise during his administration, and received from him authority to include in the annual quota of arms furnished by the I United States one hundred stand of Spring lield percussion muskets,?the best then ! known?which were presented, by the Gov ernor's order, to the Grays, theu commanded by Captain (now Major) Wyatt M. Elliott, as a testimonial of his approbation. As regards the inspection referred to, there was present, iu addition to Captain Jiossicux(a capital officer),Lieutenant-Colonel Whitehead, of the First. Regiment of Virginia Volunteer?, commanding in the absence of the colonel, one of the best officers known to me, with all needful official instructions in regard to the insj>e?tion. William IT. Richardson, A. U. August 18, 1873. MANCHESTER ITEMS. CnriRCH Notes.?The regular pastors offi ciated at the Methodist and Baptist churches Sunday morning. At the Presbvterian ctfureli the pulpit was tilled by KeV. Dr. Hrmvtw The attendance at all the churches and Sa hi Kith schools was small, owing to the threatening aspect of the weather, and in consequence ol the rain the missionary meeting at the Baptist church in the after noon was postponed, and no services were held at any of the churches at night. Personal.?Rev. Mr. Lumpkin and family leave to-day on a visit to King and Queen county. Kcv. Mr. Campbell is attending a called Presbytery in Powhatan county. Kev. Mr. Hammond Is still detained from his charge in quest of health. Tiie Manufacture of Bricks.?This branch of business has of late assumed lap'e proportions, and at this time is a most im portant item in our general prosperity, theie being four large yards in sneee-sfui opera tion. About forty thousand bricks are made per day at these yards, among them some first-class stock-brick, and ready sale is found for all made. The supplv of water at all of the yards except one *is plentiful, the owners being compelled, at a heavy ex pense, to haul from the river. One eonccrn have connected their yards with tlie town water-works. The clay roundabout this place is pronounced excellent, and a large increase in this important source of wealth may be expected. The combined yards use about 3,500 cords of wood per year, and the saving to them by tlie completion of the free bridge is about 8300 per day. Political Matters.?The Conservatives of Dale township tired the first gun in the cam paign Saturday. An abundance of good "beer was provided, and admirable addresses made by William E. Martin, Esq., and others. This township is safe for Kemper, Brooks, and the couuty ticket. The Radicals had a pow-wow at night.. The chairman was Lawsou Burfoot, who was re cently the recipient of thirty-nine stripes for stealing. Daniel Trent made a most incen diary speech. There were no white Radicals present. Relics of the Past.?The workmen at the brick-yard of Davis, RaglandA Co., Scmines street and Eighth avenue, have recently ex humed a number of bones and pieces of a skeleton, also a number of beads and other trinkets, and half and quarter clipped Span ish coins of the reign of Ferdinand VI. This was doubtless one of tjie primitive burial-places of the hamlet, as it has not been used as such for over a century. These relics are in possession of Mr. Rugland. Alert Fjre-Compaxy.?A town of the size ot' Manchester needs a well-organized lire department. Most of the buildings are frame oucs. and a tire conld not fail to be dis astrous. For some cause the Alerts arc not. satisfied. Their apparatus is out of order, and the men, it. is said, are losing interest in the matter. A meeting of the company will be held to-morrow night, when every mem ber is expected to be present. A petition for aid will be sent to the Trustees, and the Alerts, who have never failed to respond when duty called, will doubtless be placed in first-class working order. Minor Topics.?Justice Chiles had a num ber of disorderly characters before him yes terday. who were dealt, with to the full ex I tent of the law. The Union (juard. titty ?trong, Captain A. E. Worshain, and a host of friends, male and female, exeurted to Petersburg yester day. There will be a called meeting of the Widc Awakes to-night at the old Continental. Every memberjis expected to be present. The Jefferson Literary Society meets to night at the county court-house. Subject: "Is the homestead law beneficial 'i " A meeting to organize a military company will be held at the Town llall to-night at o'clock. A festival and concert, at Providence church, will take place on Wednesday. Among the attractions is a lectine by R- v. Dr. Edwards. The Manchester tannery and sumac mills are doing a large business in sumac. The yield is the lamest for some years. The Marshall Mills are closed this week to allow necessary repairs. At a late hour yes terday affair* remained in statu quo atllie Manchester corn-mills. Notwithstanding the abatement, of the goose l:?.w the people roundabout the mar ket-house arc not happy.

EDU CATIONAL?SI1ADB0LT VS. CA1RNES?RAILROAD ACCIDENT. [Correspondence of the Klchmond Dispatch.J Petersburg, August 18,1873. At a meeting of the male members ot St. Joseph's Catholic congregation held yester dav it was unanimously resolved to appoint a committee of three to inquire into and re port upon purchasing a lot in Blandford Cemetery to be known as the clerical lot, where shall be interred all priests who die in this city, and where also shall be deposited the remains of the late Revs. Mulvey and Vau cler Plus. It was a ho suggested at the same meeting to establish at an early day a branch of the .Sisters of Charity. On the latter subject no definite action was taken, it being considered desirable to ascertain the feeling of the congregation. In case it is approved the matter will be pushed to a speedy consummation. Information was received in this city to* div stating that Daniels Reynolds, an em ploye of the Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio railroad, in Lynchburg, in attempting to jump upon the eastern-bound train while in motion, yesterday morning, fell between the coaches and was run over by a sleeping coach, crushing both of his legs horribly. He died in two hours after the accident. The remains of the unfortunate man were sent to his wife, in Appomattox county, this morning. ..... ,, 'J here seems to be in this city a well-organ ized band of burglars, who have been ope rating successfully in the Fifth Ward. Be* sides instances of house-breaking, already reported in this correspondence, on last Saturday night at a late hour the dwellings of Messrs. Sheffield and Cullen were en tered and various articles of food, clothing, &c., stolen. Not the slightest clue exists as to the perpetrators. A light occurred in the lirst National Bank to-dav between Messrs. C. W. Spicer and William Long, two well-known gentle men of ibis city. They were separated be fore either sustained serious injury. The difficulty grew out of a misunderstanding in reference to money. The colored milita'.y ot Richmond and Manchester visited this city to-day. The Petersburg (Juards (the colored company here) considered it to be more blessed to ?rive than to receive, and so exeurted to Farmville, leaving their visitors to take care of themselves. An excited runaway occurred here to dav. A horse belonging to Richard Kin naril (colored) took fright at the Southern depot and da-lied wildly down Union street, draining a heavy dumper-cart alter him. From Union street down Tabli into .\vca ,nore seemed the work of a moment, smash in- lamp-posts, dry goods boxes,etc. At the corner of Sycamore and Bollingbrook street, the frightened steed collided with the fancy wagon ot the Domestic Sevung-M.i chiue Company, and paused just long enough to smash it up. The last glimpse ot the flee ing animal revealed bitu on his way to Cil\ Point. . , The Conference of the Methodist R pisco pal Church adjourned on last Saturday, and a protracted religious meeting has been inau gurated in its stead. I here was a large at tendance yesterday, and deep interest mani fested in the proceedings. In the afternoon a tiirht occurred between the Richmond and Petersburg boys, in which both sides suffered noblv. . . . ... Professor Odell, of Connecticut, is in this city to-day. He will probably tuke charge ot the St. Joseph's (Catholic) Mule School here. Professor Thomas D. Davidson has de clined the position tendered him as principal of the white High School in this city, and will go to Abingdon to take charge ot the Stonewall Jackson Female College in that place. , . . ?? Mr. J. C. Shadbolt, we learn, is not satis tied with the decision rendered bv Mayor Wood in the case of policeman Catrnes (whosesentence was as I predicted), and will have the ease brought before the grand jury. To-day a heavy box-car became detached from a train on the Petersburg and \Y eldou railroad near Mount Airy aud started back slowly towards the city. Gathering force as it descended the grade, it continued to rol on until it reached the heavy grade ju>t above the Appomattox depot, when it came with a thundering force to the level below. An engine was Ktandiuj? on the bridge over the river, and the engineer discovering the danger in time put the engine in motion, but not quick enough to avoid altogether a collision. The car came upon the moving engine with such force as to knock otf the cow-catcher and to almost overwhelm the engine. Robin Adair. Thurlow Weed's ]>rivate life eontinues to be made up of deeds of charity. Old and in tiriu as be H be walks about seekiug out de serving objects and throwing rays of sun shine into the homes of the poor. Last week 1 learned that he had given $1,000 to an old, superannuated subaltern who, in earlier years, had jjerformed service for him in the political primaries. The latter was thunder struck when the thousand-dollar check was banded him. Were Mr. Weed's charities to be known it would be found that he has scattered three or four fortunes in this man ner.? New York Letter. Gales burg, 111., lias forfeited the renown which she retained in former years as a "Black Abolition Hole." She now refuses to admit colored children to her public schools. She rel'u>ed last Friday to lend the colored citizeus an American flag to carry iu the procession. On the same day a respecta ble colored man attempted to procure a cup of tea. or coflee there, but he was repulsed from three or four restaurants and eating houses on account of his eolor.

[fcppclal telegram to ihe Dispatch.] Montgomery W hite Sulpopb Spblngs, Va August 18.?Governor Letcher called feouthern Historical Convention to order Proceedings of last meeting were read approved. Governor Letcher said that as chairman the committed appointed to wait on General Hardee he had discharged that duty by de livering to Mrs. Hardee a copy of the resolu tion, the General not being able to receiv him in person. At this point Admiral Semmes, chairman of the Committee of Reception, entered the hall escorting Mr. Jefferson Davis. Admiral Semmes said: "Mr. President, I have the honor to present to you and the gentlemen of the Convention Mr. Jefferson Davis, our esteemed president of the late Confederate states." 31 r. Davis was received by the audience standing and with prolonged applause. Governor Letcher said : 44 As the organ of this Convention it is my pleasure as well as my duty, Mr. Davis, to give you a hearty welcome?a welcome to the ? honors, the affections, and hospitalities of Virginia." Mr. Davis responded: 441 am deeply thankful for your kind wclcome. I feel at home iu Virginia. She gave her bosom to be torn by ail the horrors of war, and her sons aud her treasure for the cause, and I look upon her mountains in their peaceful gran deur, her verdant vales and her material wealth; yet, above all, her men excel her soil, and her women excel her men. Fresh in my memory is the devotion and self-sacri fice of her noble women. When the Shenun doah V alley was laid in waste the fair women whose hands had never known an hour's toil labored for the support and the comfort of the army. I am most happy to know the cause for which we have con vened. Much time lias passed away; m;iny of the participants have been culled to their fathers. It is hard for those whose hearts were in the cause to think of those days without feeling their mother's softness coming to their eyes. We have been cheated rather than conquered, and could we have foreseen the results of the surren der we wouid have been free to-day. The time has come for us to vindicate the truth tor tbe sake of the unrecorded dead who fought for truth and died iu a patriotic cause. These scraps of history do us injustice. AVe must collect the material for the future historian. It may have been well to wait until passion and- feeling should subside, but we should delay no longer. l)o we not see decadence in all that makes a people great and happy ? Therefore the higher duty on us. I have received a letter from a gentleman in Massa chusetts in which he wrote : 4 Our people owe you a debt of gratitude for maintaining those principles of constitutional lib^to- on which the safety of tin? country depcnd*?nd which would have been lost sight of but for your struggle.'" 44 Ladies, I have often said iu you was my greatest hoi>c for the future of our country. I have never seen a southern woman who had been reconstructed. The men of this day may yield the principles for which they contended, but the children who succeed them will cherish and perpetuate them. "Gentlemen of the Society, may your steps ever be onward and upward. I urge you to all diligence and fidelity. You must succeed with the grand old Early at your head, whose brave heart never failed or fal tered, and who had the manliness, whether in a foreign land or on his native soil, to as sert the glorious principles for which he so nobly struggled." Mr. Davis took his seat amid great ap plause. He spoke with all his accustomed grace and elegance, and while he showed deep feeling he uttered no sentiment of hos tility to the Government, but only evinced a dc-; '.ttd earnest devotion to constitutional priiM-iples. At the conclusion of 31 r. Davis's speech the Convention adjourned sine die. SOUTHERN HISTORICAL SOCIETY. Montgomery White Sulphur Springs, Va., August IS.?General Early then culled the Society to order. Admiral Semmes submitted the following resolution ; which was unanimously adopted: " Be it resolved by the Convention of the Southern Historical Society, now in session at the Montgomery White Sulphur Springs, in Virginia, and composed of delegates from all the Southern States, That his Excellency Pre sident Grant, of the United States, be respect fully requested to permit the secretary of the Southern Historical Society to inspect all pa pers that were captured by the forces of the United States during the late war from the Confederate Slates officers or other persons, and to make copies of such of them iis he may think fit, now in the possession or under the control of the Government of the Uuited States, for the purpose of enabling the said Society the better to perform the duty which it has prescribed to itself of per petuating the testimony on which the future historian of this the most memorable of the wars is to base his history." The resolution was seconded by General Martin, of Mississippi. The President said he could not now ap point the Executive Committee, but would announce that General Dabney II. Maury has been selected as its chairman. Colonel Johnson submitted a series of res olutions : '* First. That the funds of the Society be deposited at present in one of the banks of Lynchburg.

Ctocaoo,. August 18.?A collision has oc curred on the Chicago and Alton railroad between a passenger and a coal train, which [las resulted in the loss of a number of Jives. Ihe blame for the accident attaches to the inductor and enjriueer of the coal train, who moved their train contrary to regula ;ions. They have disappeared. Fl'BTHER PARTICULARS. Nkw York, August 18.?Additional ac counts of the disaster on the Chicago and Alton road state that the passenger train left Willow station, according to the best evi ience, ten minutes behind time, and, as it is customary on this road to make up lost time, undoubtedly the rate of speed was somewhat tccelerated. The conductor and engineer knew they were to pass a coal train at Le inont, seven miles distant, but unhappily that train did not wait at Lemont as it should bave done, but came on towards the passen ger train, expecting to make Willow station. The conductor and engineer of the coal train kDew that the passenger train, laden with precious lives, was in front, aud if they did not reach the switch by a certain time a collision was inevitable. Both trains were rushing towards their destruction sis tbey (lew over the ironway through the dark ness, their speed increasing at every revolu tion of the wheels. There were three concussions- the tirst, when the engines met and were destroyed ; the second, when the baggage-cars struck and were smashed into fragments; and the third, when the smoking-car collided and leaped in the air and alighted on the frac tured boiler of the freight engine. The re mains of the passenger eugine were thrown from the track towards the east, and so were the ruins of the baggage-ear. Then came the smoking-car on the top of the boiler, where it remained standing at an angle of thirty degrees, with the passengers impri soned in the broken iron and wood, while the deadly steam came up with terrific force from the boiler below, scalding those whom it touched and causing the most excrutiating agony. One moment in this condition was sufficient to cause death, but many were tbere several minutes before being extri cated. One breath while in the deadly vapor was fatal, the inner surface of the chest aud lungs being fearfully scalded. Chicago, August 18.?J. H. Smith aud S. W.
