The Convention The 12th resolution of the Committee on Federal Relations came up in the order of business, in Committee of the Whole, yesterday morning. This resolution makes it an indispensable condition that a pacific shall be adopted towards the seceded States, that they shall not be subjected to Federal authority, that no attempt shall be made to reinforce the forts possessed by the United States, or to recapture those within the seceded States, or exact payment of imposts, &c. An effort was made by the extreme Union men, headed by Mr. Carlile, to strike out a material portion of the resolution, but it secured only seventeen votes. A modification was made, however, drawing a distinction between forts, which Messrs. Summers, Baldwin, and their friends, maintain are of "national" importance, (such as Fort Jefferson on the Tortugas, and Fort Taylor at Key West,) and those which are situated inland. The resolution, as thus amended, was adopted. The 13th resolution was amende

At Fort Johnson, there are one hundred enlisted men, under Capt. James; thirty-one enlisted men, under Lieut. Blanding, at Castle Pinckney; and one hundred and forty-six men, composed of artillery and infantry, under Capt. Pope, at Fort Palmetto; making in all, three thousand twenty-seven men; which force has been placed under the command of Brigadier-General Beauregard, an officer of the army of the Confederate States of America. The military force consists of nine regiments of infantry, not including two regiments now being formed, or the volunteer soldiers of Charleston. The troops are enlisted for six months. The estimate given of the force does not extend as far as up to the last three days, during which period the number has been largely increased, in view of the expected attempt to reinforce Fort Sumter.
or inspection and to be mustered into the Federal service for a temporary period. The Government keeps its own secrets, but this movement, it is believed, is for the purpose of forming a strong military guard for the protection of the public buildings and archives.--The companies were inspected at their respective quarters, and the volunteers mustered into service were required to take the test oath in addition to the usual military one, merely to obey the orders of the President of the United States. Many refused to take the oath, though willing to take that usually prescribed. A majority of the company called the "National Rifles"declined to take it, and it is thought the company will be disbanded. It is reported in intelligent quarters that one or more companies of Federal troops have been ordered here from the North, and are shortly to arrive. Great diversity of sentiment on the National crisis begins to manifest itself here, and sectional feeling is becoming strongly

He entered the Navy on the 3d of February, 1829--had been thirty-two years in service, nearly nineteen of which he was on sea. I believe he loved the South, and would have resigned had his native State seceded. He leaves a wife and family to mourn his sudden demise. His remains are to be temporarily deposited in the old cemetery vault to-day, there to remain until his relatives are heard from. Another letter says: "His remains were followed to their resting place in the cemetery here, by a large concourse of officers and men from the fleet, and Fort Pickens; officers and men of the Confederate Army, and citizens. The flag (Confederate States of America) in the yard was half-mast, and the best feeling existed; officers and men of either side mangling together freely. One would think (not knowing) that no hostile attitude existed among them."
