ed the movement, as another effort to fire the Southern heart. The course of events thus far had been as the harpoon driven into the vitals of the whale, and it was natural that the blood should spout and the waters be discolored; but if the Union men stood firm, the whale would soon show the white of his belly. [Laughter.] He did not want to go home and tell his constituents that he got so frightened that he had to send men right off to Washington as hard as they could rip, to see what Mr. Lincoln was going to do. He opposed secession, opposed coercion, and believed that the course of Virginia, thus far, had stayed the hand of civil war. Mr. Tredway, of Pittsylvania, was not among those referred to by the gentleman who had just taken his seat. He had come here with a view to make every honorable effort to adjust the difficulties, on condition that a policy of peace was to be preserved. Unusual events were now transpiring, and it was the duty of Virginia to make a respectful
e party, of which the gentleman from Montgomery was a representative; and another a little lower down. A voice.--"A little higher up!" Mr. Montague.--No sir, a little lower down; the extreme Union party, to which the gentleman from Augusta belongs — and he thought that each of these parties was entitled to one of the Commissioners. For his own part, while thanking the gentleman who nominated him, he declined the mission; no power could drag him to Washington to ask a favor of Abraham Lincoln. [Symptoms of applause.] Mr. Speed, of Campbell, nominated Hon. Robt. E. Scott, of the county of Fauquier. Mr. Scott declined, being, he said, unable to leave the city at present. He cordially endorsed the nomination of the gentleman from Augusta, (Mr. Stuart.) Mr. Morton, of Orange, nominated Mr. Samuel McDowell Moore, of the county of Rockbridge, as a fairer exponent of the principles of the "submissionists," as he would term them, if he preserved the same courtesy of
t, the people may take the matter in their own hands. Montgomery, April 6. --The people here are pleased at the prospect of a brush, but are afraid President Lincoln will evade a conflict. The firing into the schooner at Charleston brightens all faces. New Orleans, April 6. --The news from Washington and New Yohe Southern Confederacy, said he anticipated only peace, and declared that he spoke advisedly in saying that the Confederate States desired nothing else. But, if Lincoln did not desire peace, they were prepared to accept whatever was in store for them. That they would open civil war rather than submit to coercive execution of anydependence at all hazards.--He claims that the Confederate States Government is growing daily in strength, and can afford to wait peaceably for the development of Lincoln's policy. To-day he again declared his conviction that there was nothing in the rumors of warlike movements by the Administration. The sloop-of-war Pawnee, w
with a riffed, it is of course your duty to advance towards him in a polite and deferential manner, and ask him what he means by it! When a robber aims a slungshot at your head, or a burglar breaks the fastenings of your door, or an incendiary applies the match to the inflammable materials which he has prepared for a conflagration, by all means, before you prepare to defend your life and property, ask him what he means by it? Ten to one, in each of these cases, he will assure you, as Abe. Lincoln does his Southern interrogators, that he means no harm whatever, and that his intentions are of the most pacific character. Three thousand troops and a squadron of war ships sent to the South, are such evident measure of conciliation and compromise that, but for politeness sake, we can't conceive why Virginia should inquire of the Black Republican President what he means by it. His purpose is just as plain as was that of his illustrious prototype, John Brown, when he proceeded to "occu
Humiliating Appeals of Virginia. The everlasting appeals of Virginia to Lincoln are a source of profound humiliation to the people of this once majestic Commonwealth. In the name of all that is proud and glorious in the past history of Virginia, let us invoke her official representatives to appear no more as petitioners and suppliants at the bar of the John Brown Administration, if the State is to fall, let her at least fall with Roman dignity, and refrain from pilling up dishonor upon the graves of her dead, and causing the checks of her living to tingle with shame.
The Convention. The whole of yesterday was devoted to the consideration of the resolutions to appoint three Commissioners to wait on the President of the Northern States, for the purpose of requesting him to disclose his policy towards the seceded States. They passed by a vote of 63 to 57, and Mr. Preston, of Montgomery, (Conservative,) Mr. Stuart, of Augusta, (extreme Union,) and Mr. Randolph, of Richmond city, (Secession,) were appointed to convey the message of the Convention to Mr. Lincoln. We understand that they will leave for Washington this morning.
A Federal Court to be held in North Alabama. --The Montgomery (Ala.) Advertiser, of the 2nd, says it is reported that George W. Lane, recently appointed by Mr. Lincoln as Judge for Alabama, will attempt to hold his Court at Athens, and wonders whether "he will have the temerity to do so." The appointee was formerly a Judge in the State, but his intellectual qualifications are of such a character that when the appointment was made the Alabama papers laughed at it.
