In the House a resolution to send a Commissioner to Georgia was laid over until Saturday. It was attacked by its opponents as disastrous in its delays, and the result of the Commission to Virginia was cited. A dispatch f Eight hundred Minute Men are drilling here to-night. Cheering dispatches from all parts of the South are received, and the services of volunteers proffered from Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Kentucky and Tennessee. Charleston dispatches state that unsuccessful attempt were made to-day by troops to remove the government arms
the part of South Carolina, and inviting the co-operation of other States, which was tabled. The bill thus amended passed unanimously, after an exciting debate, in which it was said that all had favored the Senate bill, but developments had been made within the last twenty-five hours which made decided action necessary. Telegraphic messages were constantly receiving calling upon them to act. The Senate also unanimously concurred in the amendments. It is expected that Georgia, Florida Alabama, Texas and Mississippi will go with South Carolina. In the House a resolution was offered, to be considered Monday, that the Governor raise 10,000 volunteers. Saturday evening a crowd of two thousand persons assembled in front of the Congaree House. The Minute men turned out and marched down Main street, amid a great display of fire-works. Judge McGrath and Messrs.

Fatal affairs in Georgia. --An altercation occurred on the 6th inst., at Dalton, Ga, between Jesse A. Glenn, a young attorney, and Dr. Moffit, which resulted in the death of the latter by a pistol shot in the hands of the former. The difficulty originated about which of the two gentlemen should vote a drunken floater. In Dahlonega, Ga., on the 4th instant, Gen. Riley, member of the Georgia Senate, from Lumpkin county, was fired upon by a man named Davis, while sitting at his own fireside, and mortally wounded.

It was resolved, further, that the meeting pledge themselves to submit to a rate of taxation sufficient to raise a million of dollars to organize and arm the military of the State. A further resolution was adopted, condemning the action of the citizens' meeting this afternoon, and declaring that the resolutions adopted thereat do not express the sense of the community. Colonel Anderson, of Savannah, addressed the meeting, decidedly in favor of immediate action by the South. Intense excitement prevailed. Resignation of Senators Toombs and Chestnut. Augusta, Nov. 10.--Senator Toombs, of Georgia, and Senator Chestnut, of South Carolina, have severally resigned their offices as Senators of the United States. Volunteers in Alabama.

f the Union shall outnumber its benefits, is sound and universally accepted Democratic doctrine.-- Whether North Carolina should now assert that right, is a question for the people to determine. We, for one of her citizens at least, oppose the taking of any such step at present. We say, let North Carolina stay in the Union! Let her not ingloriously abandon the Government with its immortal trophies and worldwide prestige to the exclusive possession of the North! But, if South Carolina, or Georgia, or any other State, shall decide upon secession, in God's name, and in the name of civil liberty and State rights, let her withdraw! This is not the hour for rash counsel, or precipitate action. Moderation was never more desirable than now. Referring to the position of the Georgia Legislature, with reference to action in this crisis, the Augusta (Ga.) Dispatch says: The rights and powers of the Legislature are conferred on it by the Constitution, and the framers of that instru
Gen. Henry Lee. The remains of this distinguished officer, who is better known by the soubriquet of "Light-Horse Harry Lee." derived from his brilliant services as commander of the famous Legion which performed so many signal exploits in the South Carolina Campaigns, lie buried in the garden of a Mr. Nightingale, a grandson of Gen. Nathaniel Greene, in the Island of Cumberland, off the coast of Georgia. Not a stone marks the grave of a man who was esteemed the best cavalry officer of his day — who was, above all his compeers, the personal friend of Washington--whom Washington selected as his second in command when it was supposed that we were to have a war with France — who spent seven years of the seed time and harvest of his life in the military service of his country — who was Governor of Virginia — and who poured out his money and his blood like water, in defence of our rights. It is a reproach to Virginia that this thing should be so. Yet we are pleased to believe th
Meeting of Southern Legislatures --In view of the menaced assemblage and subsequent action of Southern Legislatures in case of Lincoln's election, it becomes a matter of interest to know when those Legislatures meet, although some of them are to be called together in special session immediately.
