House of Delegates, (search)
The Convention. A motion to take up Mr. Richardson's resolution of inquiry concerning the military strength of the Commonwealth, was yesterday voted down. Secession resolutions from the counties of Northampton, Mecklenburg, Pulaski, and Buckingham, were presented by the respective delegates, with suitable comments, and referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. The debate upon the committee's reports was opened by Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, in Committee of the Whole. He advocated the majority report, and made a strong argument in favor of the legal right of secession, but conceives it to be the duty of the Convention to make further efforts for the restoration of the Union. Mr. Randolph, of Richmond city, has the floor for to-day.
