Mr. Goode, of Bedford, being entitled to the floor, proceeded to say that it was not his purpose to speak to the resolutions, but to reply to the gentleman from Rockbridge, (Mr. Moore.) He regrettedMr. Moore.) He regretted that his physical condition rendered him wholly unable to do justice to a case of such vast interest, and regretted also that circumstances prevented him from concluding his remarks yesterday. He hoped the citizens would in future abstain from all demonstrations of applause in the hall. It was a solemn work in which the Convention was now engaged. Its action might, and doubtless would, determine the destiny of Virginia for all time to come; and while it was natural that the eagle eye of the
