Virginia State Convention.Sixth day.--[Second session.] Richmond June 19. In the absence of Mr. President Janney Mr. Southall took the chair, and, at 10 o'clock, called the Convention to order. A brief and fervent prayer was pronounced by Rev. Mr. Peterkin, of the Episcopal Church. Mr. Macfarland offered from a Committee to whom it had been referred, the following ordinance: Be it Ordained. That when the Court of any county in this Commonwealth shall fail to meet for the transaction of business, or the people thereof or any of them, shall be prevented from attending thereupon by reason of the public enemy, the Court of the county next thereto where such obstruction does not exist, and the Clerk thereof, shall have jurisdiction of all matters, and authority to do and perform all acts which, as the law now is referable to the Circuit Court or the Clerk of said Court now obstructed. The following ordinances were submitted, and ordered to be printed: 1. B
ion.Eighth day--[second session.] Richmond, June 21, 1861. The Convention was called to order at 10 o'clock, President Janney in the chair. The session was opened with prayer by Rev. Burwell Sturlock, a member of the Convention. The Comecessity, and in such cases the people of the localities should pay the expense. Pending the debate on this ordinance, Mr. Janney announced that the regular business was now before the House — namely, the election of eleven members to the Confederat order of the day was postponed till 5 o'clock this afternoon. Leave of absence was asked in behalf of Mr. President Janney, who explained the necessity of absence for four days from to-morrow. Mr. Janney took occasion to thank the House fo of Mr. President Janney, who explained the necessity of absence for four days from to-morrow. Mr. Janney took occasion to thank the House for the numerous courtesies and favors he has received at their hands. Adjourned over to 5 o'clock.
State Convention. This body met at the Capitol yesterday morning, and was called to order by Mr. Jas B. Mallory, of Brunswick, on whose motion Mr. James. H. Cox, of Chesterfield, was appointed temporary Chairman. The President, Mr. Janney, it will be remembered, resigned during the recess. It was ascertained by a call of the roll that only forty-six members were in attendance — not enough to constitute a quorum — when, by general consent, the body adjourned over until this morning. There is some little curiosity to learn what subject will especially occupy the time of the Convention, in the event that a sufficient number of members to proceed with the organization present themselves. A revision of the Constitution is suggested as probable, and if this proves correct we may safely calculate upon a protracted session. The memorial of the Corporation of Richmond, in regard to legalizing the issue of its small notes, will be presented at an early da

The State Convention. On Saturday the Convention proceeded to the election of a presiding officer in place of Mr. Janney, resigned, when 56 votes were cast for Robert L. Montague, of Middlesex, and 28 for James H. Cox, of Chesterfield. Mr. Montague was declared elected, and, on taking the chair, delivered an appropriate address. The Convention then proceeded to business. A resolution, offered by Mr. Fisher, of Northampton, for the expulsion of a member named Waitman T. Willey, on account of his disloyalty to the Confederate States and his adherence to the enemies of the same, was adopted. A communication from certain citizens of Northwestern. Virginia, recommending the appointment of representatives to fill vacancies in the Legislature for the counties identified with the Wheeling treason, was laid on the table. Mr. Mallory, of Brunswick, offered a resolution to adjourn sinc die on Thursday next, and Mr. Scott, of Fauquier, proposed as a substitute "That the pre
has become a terror to the enemy, is composed in great part of old Union men. That the enemy takes the same view of the subject, is indicated by their arrest, under circumstances of great cruelty and oppression, of old Union men.-- The case of Mr. Janney, the President of the Virginia Convention, is a case in point. Not withstanding he was in delicate health, and was also confined to his house by the illness of his wife, he was visited, says the Enquirer, by some officers of the detested crew who have invaded our State, and required to provide food and other accommodations for them. They told him that they called on him with the greater pleasure, because they knew him by report as a good Union man. Mr. Janney replied that he had no part or lot in their Union; that he; with his State, belonged to another; that he had nothing for them; no aid or comfort in any way: that he knew he was in their power; and that they could exercise their pleasure upon him. The scoundrels carried off the
Mr. Janney has not taken the Lincoln Oath — some News from Loudoun. A gentleman recently from Leesburg, Londoun, informs us that there is no truth whatever in these statement by the Washington Republican, (copied into this paper yesterday,) that Mr. Janney had taken the cath to support the Lincoln Government. On the contrarMr. Janney had taken the cath to support the Lincoln Government. On the contrary, he had positively and persistently refused to do so, declaring that he was a citizen of Virginia, and that his allegiance was due to Virginia and the Southern Confederacy. Gen. Geary, the Federal commander, had taken possession of a room in Mr. J.'s house against his (Mr. J.'s) consent, and occupied it during his say in Leesburg which continued until the battle of Kerns.' town, when his troops, (amounting to about 2,000,) were withdrawn for some purpose. --Mr. Janney maintained his position with dignity and firmness, and made no concessions whatever. We learn that the Yankee soldiery behaved with much brutality in Loudoun. They robbed and pillaged

Mr. Janney and the Yankee correspondent. Washington Irving the most respectful of all the Yankee writers took occasion, upon having vented the historian, Roscoe at his residence in Liverpool, or wherever he then lived, to write one or the papers of his sketch-book, in which he brought that gentleman prominently before the world in the character of a ruined merchant, supporting our reverses with philosophy and solacing himself with literature. Though the compliments were of the most delicad are shut against him. He goes to your house to try into your secret thoughts and to betray them to the world through the newspaper he corresponds with. Under such circumstances we were amazed to find that a man of so much intelligence as Mr. Janney had permitted one of these eavesdropping to enter his house, but not at all surprised — since he had thus adopted him — to find him publishing what he called his conversation to all the We thing the reported conversation hears upon its face o
