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."

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
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
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
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

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

wheo ho was elected to the Board of Aldermen,
he was appoiuted by the votes of his lellows as

Well, to our esteemed Herculean African friend
this will indeed be new.-. John was an humble,

common with many of his race who "were na
