The Convention should wait no longer — now was the time to strike.-- While the gentleman from Franklin was opposing hasty action, he (Mr. Goode,) had received letters from two prominent citizens of Franklin, stating that the people were impatient for action. Mr. Goode proceeded to give the Inaugural Address of Lincoln a raking broadside, and drew a vivid contrast between the Illinois politician and Jefferson Davis, the "bright Saladin of the South." Virginia would resist coercion to the death. The first at tempt on the part of Lincoln, in that direction, would light up the fire of civil war in every portion of the Commonwealth. He thought the only way to preserve the peace was for Virginia to speak at once. Mr. Johnson, of Richmond, next addressed the Convention. He thought gentlemen exhibited too much of passion, and were indisposed to do deliberately what could not well be done hastily.
esources. -- We are ready. [From the Charleston Mercury.] But still we would say to our people, for the present keep cool, and bide your time.-- The honor of this State is no further involved in this matter. It has been transferred to the shoulders of the Government of the Confederate States of America. Whether wisely or not, it is now too late to discuss. Our course now is one entirely of policy and war strategy. We do not profess to be accurately cognizant of the plans of President Davis. If there is to be a war, there must be a plan and a policy for the campaign. These must originate from the heads of the Government. We have now nothing to lose by time — everything to gain. -- War six weeks ago might have placed Virginia now by our side. War would have been in the name of the State of South Carolina.--The glory, prestige, and historic fame, would have been hers. It is no longer so. The blood will be hers; but little of the profit. That blood, however, her people

Mayor's Court. --The Mayor yesterday disposed of a number of cases, in a majority of which, as usual, the colored folks figured prominently. Albert, slave of M. Mangum, was ordered 39 lashes for substituting a formidable slung-shot for a pass. Jim Harris, free, was ordered the same punishment for having a "fancy colored ball" at his house. There were seventeen darkies at the party aforesaid, and the "perlice" captured them. We might add their names, and the fact that they were admonished in the usual way, but it is unnecessary. A musky odor pervaded the Mayor's sanctum yesterday, and there was much darkness prevalent. In addition to the above, Stephen, slave of Wm. Breeden, was whipped for giving a forged pass to Taylor, slave of Kersey & Davis. Pat and Ann Ri, for preventing Mike O'Neil from moving his goods from his own house, were required to give security for their good behavior.
