It Is questionable, under present circnm stances, whether it is the greatest danger, for however rash and ill*advised such an act would be, still there may be other ac tion that would be less startling at the time, but equally deplorable in result.? These considerations have been brought to mind by the dispatch under the. heading "Virginia Convention," in this morning'B paper.
