guard, and he replied with warmth: Sir, if you were, as you should be, a Christian man, you would not think or say so. Thus also thrown off my guard, I replied tartly, in words not now remembered; when he turned upon his heel and walked to his house on the opposite side of the street. I passed on home, and had not gone half way when I began to rebuke myself for my rudeness to Major Jackson, and determined to return and apologize to him. Reaching home, I found my wife and relative, Major Dorman, sitting together. I told them what had occurred, and requested my wife to give me an early supper, that I might return and make my apology. I returned to my office after dusk taking with me a negro boy to bear my apology in writing to Major Jackson. The following is a copy of the unfinished note of apology referred to: Saturday night, May 1, 1858. Major Jackson, Dear Sir,--As I shall not have an opportunity of meeting you again before Monday, I will not rest content until I sh

Mr. Dorman had foreseen the difficulties that would arise under the rules adopted, and would move, as a substitute for the resolution, the following: Resolved, That . Rules of the Convention. Mr. Nelson moved to take up his resolution, offered yesterday, to appoint a Committee on Rules, Negatived. On motion of Mr. Dorman, the Convention reconsidered the vote adopting the rules of the House of Delegates.

On motion of Mr. Montague, the resolution was amended by inserting "so far as they are applicable," and passed. Place of meeting. Mr. Speed offered the following: Resolved. That a committee of five be appointed, with instruct

Notwithstanding all the precautions, however, there was considerable confusion in the lobby, which at one moment, seemed likely to result in knock-down arguments. The Convention met at 12 o'clock, pursuant to adjournment. Prayer by the Rev. Dr. Beid, of the Presbyterian Church. Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, offered a resolution, which was adopted, authorizing the Committee on Federal Relations to employ a Clerk. Mr. Dorman, of Rockbridge, desired to state, before the Convention proceeded to the execution of the order of the day, that the Governor of the Commonwealth was prevented from attending here to-day by the state of his health; otherwise he would have been present to participate in the reception of the Southern Commissioners. On motion of Mr. Wm. Ballard Preston, the Convention voted to proceed to the execution of the order of the day, namely, the Reception of the Southern Commissioners. T

Mr. Dorman said that the gentleman from Jefferson, who was now absent from his seat, was deeply interest motion. Mr. Wise raised a question of order, but did not press it.

his Convention adjourn, it adjourn to meet again on Monday next. Mr. Fisher moved to amend by inserting "Saturday" in the place of Monday. Mr. Hall, of Wetzel, was opposed to adjourning over at all. It was rumored that the Peace Conference was about to conclude its labors, and he thought no time should be lost, in view of that fact. If the gentleman from Harrison (Mr. Carlile) wanted to hear Washington's Farewell Address, he would agree to go to his room and read it to him. Mr. Dorman explained why he should vote against adjourning over to Monday. A resolution was laid on the table yesterday in consideration of the absence of the gentleman from Jefferson, who would probably be in his seat on Saturday, when the resolution could be called up. The amendment was adopted, and the resolution, as amended, passed. Invitation. A letter was read from Messrs. Ettenger & Edmond, inviting the members of the Convention to witness a trial of a steam fire-engine, of thei

Mr. Goggin also alluded to the threatened prohibition of the inter-State slave trade, and to other subjects in connection there with. The time was past when we should ask the people of the North to go into consultation; but had we asked it, and had it been denied us, we should not to-day have witnessed the spectacle here of divided counsels. The whole South would have been united, and peace and quietness restored. As matters now stood, he conceived the conference of the border States to be the only right and just plan of settlement. He did not believe coercion would be attempted, yet was in favor of ample preparation for any emergency. After Mr. Goggin had spoken some two hours, (we have given but an outline of his remarks,) he gave way at the suggestion of Mr. Dorman, for a motion to adjourn — and then, on his motion, The Convention adjourned.
wealth — and if, in their opinion, an appropriation should be made, that they report such ordinance, and the amount which ought to be appropriated. Mr. Early moved to lay the resolution upon the table. The President said that he understood the gentleman from Northampton as desiring to offer a resolution which would cause no debate. The unfinished business of yesterday must be disposed of before the Convention can proceed to the consideration of the resolution just offered. Mr. Dorman moved that the unfinished business of yesterday be taken up. This having been carried in the affirmative, Mr. Goggin, of Bedford, resumed the floor, and proceeded with his remarks. His views, he said, had been presented in no partisan sense, and without any purpose to make them the basis of his ultimate action, in case the Convention should determine to pursue a different course. His purpose was to discuss these grave questions in such a way as to arrive at the truth; to compare opi
The Convention. A number of resolutions were offered yesterday, and referred to the Committee on Federal Relations; among them one by Mr. Garland, contemplating the passage of an ordinance submitting the question to the vote of the people, whether they will remain with the North, or secede and unite with the Southern States; and another by Mr. Dorman, for a vote of the people of all the States, on the question of Union or Disunion, on the basis of the Peace Conference proposition. Mr. Baylor concluded his Union speech, and endorsed the proposition emanating from the Conference at Washington, which was subsequently denounced by Mr. Goode, of Mecklenburg, who has the floor for to-day. An animated debate sprang up on a resolution offered by Mr. Sheffet, inviting the Virginia Commissioners to the Conference to address the Convention, at their convenience, and to occupy seats on the floor. A substitute, offered by Mr. Price, merely inviting the Commissioners to seats, was finally a
