in a The General Assembly of Virginia is j

the Virginia has taken her position, and
aat she hIas dolne it with unaniinity and
nttr firmnein% and shl will not shrink from
str it. If the legislators had not taken it,
the people would have taken it for
Al- tlhemselves. If thl Legislature had not
ae reflecc d tIme public sentimeut, it could

ary We truist, now, the General Assembly
red will pass promptly a bill calling a con
Car- vention at an early day. The counties
gia, have, with great nnanimity, favored a
lr of onvention; and if it be called at once, L
outh it will very much relieve the public
