FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 10. Io speaking of iron in Virginia the Amherst Enterprise says:?"In Virginia valuable iron ore lands are cheap and millions ot acres are on the marker. Labor is abundant and cheap, and coal, by means of railroads, is getting nearer to ore, so that io a short time, if not already, iron and steel can be manufactured here in Virginia cheaper than elsewhere in the world. All we want is capital. It is said that Pennsylvania iron costs to make it nearly $8, per ton more than Virginia, and that English iron cannot compete against Virginiau, even without any tariff. She could compete with the world, if she had capital, and make money at Euglish prices. When the great iron-mas ters ot Pennsylvania aud Michigan find that, on accout ot the high price of lands and mines and labor, they can not compete with tounh iron, they will transfer the bulk of their capital to Virginia, and will continue their busiuess at a profit, simply by a change ot location. It is questionable whether many are not now pre paring so to do." The Democratic convention ot Pennsylvania last night, after a stormy session, nominated Judge Cyrus P. Pershing, for Governor. The platform adopted declares in favor of equal and exact justicc to all men; the removal of the present federal leaders; the reduction of public i fficers, and greater economy in the administra tion of the Government; opposing further con traction of the currency; favoring the retiring of National Bank notes, and the issuing in their stead Of legal-tenders, and making legal-tcuders receivable for all public dues; the extinction of National Banks aud the establishment of free banks under State regulations. Mr. Pershing, it is said, is personally in favor of hard money, but will sacrifice his views to party policy.

Littell &, Gay, Boston, Pub lishers. Washington Produce Fxcliaiiuc. At a tucetiug of tlie Washiugtou Produce Exchange, yesterday, Mr. Duiruw moved lo reconsider the vote of* the Exchange at the last meeting by which the Weuger braod ol fl^ur was inserted ia the Price Curreut, and upon its passage also moved that the same be stricken troin the list. Mr. Ream spoke in opposition to the motion, and asked Mr. Dutruw what was his object in having it expunged. Mr. Duiruw uffered as his reason that he did not think it was right to advertise any particu lar brand of flour in the Price Current. Mr. Ream, the ayent lor the fluur, said that it was not bis object to advertise it, but be doubted the right ol the .Exchange to rucousidi r action on such an impurtaut question without due notiee as is constitutional }' provided. 1 he Chair decided that the consideration of the question was in order, and ou the putting '?>f the question it was voted that the Weuger be sirickeu from the list. Mr. R am moved to reconsider the vote by winch thu Weuger was expunged from the Pnee Current, (which motion was not second ed,) aud asked the three gentlemen who voted in the affirmative to give their reasons for so doing, and he wou'd toke their arguments as a basis upon which to reply. Mr. Spindle theu moved to reconsider the vote by which the brand had beeu expunged, which was agreed to. Mr. Spindle said ho would give other reasons for voting in the affirmative than merely to re capitulate what had beeu said by Mr. Dutrow. The Exchange might well quote Welch's aud other brands as the Wenger. Mr. Ream asked how 11 affected Mr. Spin dle. Mr. Spindle did not recognize the right of Mr. Ream, or that of uny gentleman, to de mand the reasons for voting in the affirmative. Mr. Weoger would uot waut it quoted, for it wuuld put up the price ol wheat iu Rocking ham eouuty. Mr. Ream said that io an Exchange all ques tions were expected to be discussed freely trom a business standpoint, aud that the inquiry was made for the purpose ol bringing out the fullest expression, aud it was uot a case io which a inau was called to accouut iu a persoual mat ter. l'he lallacy of the gentleman's statement in regard to affecting the price ol" wheat in Rockingham county lie* in this?that there are one hundred or more millers iu the county, who say to the farmers, "We will pay you so much for wheat," and then does Mr. Weuger cliu-io aud say. "1 will give 5al0c more for the choice,' leaviun the general market price to be fixed by a majority uf the millers, aud not by Mr. Weoger. Therefore Mr. Spindle's objection on those grounds was uot valid, aud his patronizing argument was not appreciated. On the contrary, it was uot only an advant age and a justice to Weuger to have the quota tion stated, but it was also a benefit to those parties who have claimed that they have equal ly as good a brand. 1 he difference in the price of wheat in Roekinghaui county was wholly at tributable to the quality of the grain, for which no member of the Exchange could be held re sponsible. W as this Exchange organized to bow to the fancies of the people in the country, or to makj the fair and legitimate quotations to this market ? Mr. Saum said he hud a fl ;ur equal to any in the District of Columbia, aud, if questioned as to it.s being as good as the Weoger, he would answer that it was uot only equal, but superior, aud soid lower, lie had no argument to offer against presuut rates, but they were allowing (by specifying the \\ euger) a privilege to one manufacturer which they were not granting to others. If any gentleman wanted to advertise his flour, let hiui carry the business to the paid columns of the uewspapers, where it belongs. Mr. Ream explained that Wcnger could loi come under standard family brands, as it was an $8 50 flour without range, while standard families were $i.60a7.75. It demanded a se parate place in the report, unless "standards" were raised to $8 00. Lie inquired it it was the intention of the Exchange to attempt to damage him by expuutjiun it from the report. Mr; Saum said not iu the least; that was not his idea of the correct way of doing business. It was only his desire to speci'fy oo particular manufacturer; Mr. W euger knew that. Mr. Spindle also declaimed any intention whatever of damaging Mr. Ream or Mr. Weo ger. lie had accepted too mauy hospitalities of the former to attempt anything of that kind. But when he made the motion to reconsider he did it with the iutootion that the whole ques tion was to be disposed of summarily, as be had a private engagement. Mr. Ream williugly exeuscd Mr. Spindle oo the plea ol a personal engagement, but could not submit to being summiriiy sacrificed. He stood there as the agent of Mr. Weoger in de fense of his interests, aod at this juncture "de maoded" of the Exehauge for the first time to do the market justice as coostitutioually pro vided. Mr. Saum said it was advertised in a news paper and appeared in its commercial reports, for which Mr. Ream, aud no one else, received the benefit, and that was sufficient. Mr. R am saiu it was the custom of com mercial editors aud exchanges to specify, once a week or ofieuer, the principal brands of fl >ur in the market, but he had never known of an instance of payment beiug made for their ap pearance iu the reports, ft was never consid ered or treated as paid matter by exchanges or those reportiog for newspapers. Mr. Saum claimed that Mr. Ream was no longer entitled to the fl.?nr by the clause which prevented auy gentleman's speaking more thao once oo oue subject except by cousent. The Chair decided that the point was well takan. Hie main question on expunging the Weu ger from the report was theu called, and by a vote ol four to two it was dropped from a place oo the Price Current A motion was iiero made to adjourn. Mr. Ream hoped the Exehauge would not adjourn for a few moments, as he had a paper to introduce. While Mr. Ream was prepariog his paper, (understood to be his withdrawal from the Ex change,) the motiou to adjourn was renewed, put to a vote by the chair, aud declared car ried, aud the Exchange adjourned. Flow the Nortii Carolina Convention was Olio an i zed. ?The Morth Carolina Con stitutional Couveutiou baliotted tbirteeo times for a president without effecting an election, the vote being within one of a tie between Dr. Riusotn, democrat, and Judge Doekery, re publican, while one scattering vote, cast by au independent, made a perfect dead-lock. When the fourteenth baliqt was callcd lor Dr. Ran som arose and said: "This balloting has gone on lone: enough. I have not smiiht this position; I d; not desire ?; 1 have ca<t my vote twice to defeat myself; i ut the people seem to desire that this convc.* uou shall be organ.z.'d. I have made every ef fort to effest a compromise; failing in this, I now cast my vote, let the consequences be what thi:y wiil, tor Eiward Ransom, of Tyreil coun iy, as president of this convention." The ballot was announced - Ransoo 6U, D >ck cry 5S, Durham 1, so the dead-lock was ended by Dr. Ransom voting for himself, Dockery voting for Durham. Death fhom an Opiate.?In Richmond, Va., ou Mondiy evening, Miss Bettie Tinsley, an estimable lady and sister of Mr. J. B.

And now, Irom ''the sublime to to the ridicu lous A few days ago a paragraph copied from a New York paper, appeared in the Ga zette, in which it was stated that "John A. Seaton enj >yed the confidence of his tellow citiz :us of Alexandria to such an extent, that wheo ho was elected to the Board of Aldermen, he was appoiuted by the votes of his lellows as chairman of the Finance Committee," &c. ! Well, to our esteemed Herculean African friend this will indeed be new.-. John was an humble, good citiz iu his sphere, aud was perhaps, in common with many of his race who "were na tives and to the manner born," and who con ducted i hemselves with propriety during "limes that tried men's suuls," thought well of by his Caucasian friends?but he owed hiselection to the Hoard of Aider men entirely to the fact that in his ward Ethiopia was largely the pre ponderatiug element and class, ^o much for the truth of history ! 11. Alfred Wright, better known in this com munity us "Gilmore'e Alfred," died io this town on Friday uight last, in about the 70th year of his age. "U icle Alfred," was for many years a preacher io the Old iSchool Bap tist Church, and if those to whom he broke the bread of life in his plain, simple minded, unpretendiug way, will hut profit by the exam ple he has left them of holy living, well will it be with them. Quiet, respcciful and polite iD his daily walk auu conversation, he was univer sally respected, as well by the whites, as those of his own race and he died in the enjoyment of the fullest coufidenccaod respect ot a!l who know him. On Sunday lie was buried by the colored beuevoleut society, of which organization he was a member, aud his luuera! was one of the largest, for one of his color, that we have ever seen in this low n.?Loudoun Mirror.
