Mr. Hall.of Wetzel, introduced the following resolutions, which were referred to the Committee on Federal Relations; Resolved.That in the opinion of this Convention, Virginia has a legal right at any time to resume to herself the powers that she delegated to the Federal Government, but she should never exercise that right when the interest of others are involved, only for good cause, and that the mere election of Abraham Lincoln to the Presidency of the United States, under the forms of the Constitution, affords no just grounds for Virginia to resume to herself the powers granted to the General Government; but in view of the fact that a portion of our sisters of the South composing this Confederacy have seen proper to break up their connection with this Government. and have formed a new Confederacy thereby leaving the State of Virginia in connection with the balance of the border States. greatly in the minori
For sonorous and brassy resolves, two weeks after they can be of any account except as farcical commentaries on tame and feeble action, give me your Virginia against the world. President Davis' allusions to Southern gun powder, etc., rival Lincoln's jocose babbling about an artificial crisis. Good taste and discretion seem to have evacuated the American mind. That Southern people will fight — that they will carry the war into Africa if it is ever begun, nobody doubts; but gunpowder threans, some days ago, said: "Gentlemen, you must give us something. Anything will do.--The Southern people want a pretext; it matters little what. Give us a brickbat, a spittoon, anything." Seward has given a quietus to the Morrill tariff. Lincoln has declared against its passage during the present session. A new Congress will be called as soon as possible — say the 1st of June--and by that time Abe expects to have mastered the subject by arduous study. It is reported here that the Sewa
protect the city, should Maryland and Virginia secede. Mr. Bocock, of Va., said this was a declaration of war, and appealed to those around him, in favor of preserving Southern Rights, to stand up in resistance to the bill. Mr. Boteler, of Va.,thought a more efficient measure to dissolve the Union than this bill could not be devised. Mr. Hindman, of Ark.,viewed the bill as the very best means to dissolve the Union. Mr. Sickles said there was no occasion for the bill, as Lincoln had declared that "there is no danger to anybody." Mr. Burnett said, a bill involving such momentous consequences ought to be discussed. There was great excitement throughout the proceedings. While the roll was being called on Winslow's motion to lay the bill on the table, several members defined their positions against the bill. The House refused to lay the bill on the table. Ayes 68; nayes 105. Pending the discussion of the bill. The report of the Committee of T
Louisiana Legislature. Baton Bouge, Feb. 16. --In the House of Representatives Mr. Lindsay, of New Orleans, introduced yesterday a joint resolution inviting the southern portion of Indiana and Illinois, which gave large majorities against Lincoln, to form a pro-slavery State and join the southern Confederacy — was referred to to-day. Mr. Haynes, of East Feliciana, introduced a resolution returning thanks to Gen. Lane, of Oregon, for his assurance of aid to the Southern States and ingainst Lincoln, to form a pro-slavery State and join the southern Confederacy — was referred to to-day.

are for War." Such is the advice which the Louisville Courter informs us Mr. Lincoln gave an influential and conservative citizen of Kentucky, who had an interview with him in Springfield a short time before Mr. Lincoln left for Washington. The Courter states that Mr. Thomas Hutchison, a wealthy and eminently respectable cid knowing that the question of peace or war is substantially in the hands of Mr. Lincoln, through the influence which his position gives him over the members of his through the crisis. He has returned home without hope for the future. Mr. Lincoln in the conversation, referred to the anti-coercion resolutions passed throug-that he believed the resolutions expressed the sentiment of the State. Mr. Lincoln then said with emphasis: "If Kentucky means to say that if the Federal Goverir sons will be compelled to defend their homes against the mercenaries of Abraham Lincoln! It is possible — barely possible — even yet, that by bold and manly
Prospects of reconstruction. A Northern paper intimates that when Lincoln reaches Washington he will become more conservative, and that, under the auspices of the border States, the seceding States will be tolled back into the Union. It founds this idea in part upon the fact that gentlemen of such well known moderation and weight of character as Jefferson Davis, A. H. Stephens, &c., are at the head of the new Confederacy. We draw an inference entirely opposite from that fact. Men of that cast do not embark their fortunes in perishable schemes. Moreover, they all declare, with one voice, that reconstruction is now out of the question. A gentleman of this city who has lately returned from a tour in the States of the new Confederacy, says that the people universally hoot at the idea of reconstruction. They declare that they have been so often deceived by pretended concessions and compromises that they have no idea on the face of the earth of being finally duped to their destr
Seward and Chase. The "Washington Confederacy," of Monday, referring to a rumor that Chase, of Ohio, has been selected by Mr. Lincoln as his Premier, instead of Seward, says: As much as we detest abolitionism, we prefer Wm. H. Seward, because he is a statesman and the best of his kind. And, "as much as we detest abolitionism," we respect honesty more than hypocrisy. We respect Gerrit Smith, or any sincere abolitionist, infinitely more than Wm. H. Seward. The first is simply a monomaniac; the last a hypocrite, who practices upon the delusions of others for his own personal benefit. The whole class of politicians, from the aspirant to the Presidency of the United States, down to the village demagogue, who lies his petty way to four dollars per diem, are all of the same buzzard tribe, differing only in dimensions, but alike obscene, rapacious and execrable.
