The Convention. Mr. Wysor, of Pulaski, yesterday submitted a proposition in the form of an ordinance, for dissolving all political relations between Virginia and the other States. Referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Early, of Franklin, made a personal explanation, and produced copies of letters which had passed between himself and Mr. Goode, of Bedford, resulting in an amicable settlement of their little misunderstanding. Mr. Brent, of Alexandria, made a speech on the Union side of the question. He opposed the policy of secession, but admitted the right; his view being that Virginia would be much better taken care of under the Federal Government than in the Southern Confederacy. He did not fully endorse Lincoln's Inaugural, for he opposed coercion; but did not look upon it as a warlike document. He goes for a Border State Conference. Mr. Ambler commenced a speech on the Southern side, and will conclude to-day.
