extent; but he was called upon as a member of this body to deliberate with calmness upon the propositions before it. He differed entirely from the interpretation given to his own amendment by the gentleman from Princess Anne. He regretted exceedingly if anything was occurring at Charleston, or elsewhere, to disturb the peace of the country, but maintained that we were not to be driven from our propriety by any telegraphic dispatches. When the path of duty and honor was fully pointed out, Virginians would not hesitate as to the line of policy they should pursue. Mr. Wise replied, and read the dispatch to which he previously referred, to the effect that the Pawnee had sailed from Norfolk with sealed orders for the South. (The development called forth a laugh from the "Union" side.) Mr. Wise, in continuing his remarks, paid an eloquent tribute to the "Southern cross," and said he would never consent that any Yankee foe should filch the Union, or the forts, or the Capital, from him
But the public mind is convinced that the appeal must be from the Convention to the people, and to the people all are looking. To the people we look with hope, and we will not be disappointed. Such a revolution in public sentiment as has occurred in the last three months, in this State, is without precedent in the history of the country. The fact, that country after country has spoken in primary assemblage upon such a momentous question as that which agitates the country, we may say, unanimously on one side of that question, is without parallel. Can such a revolution fail to sweep the State, and decide her course? The indications cannot be mistaken, nor can the result be doubted. The people cannot be bought — they will never submit — Virginians never, Never will be Slaves! We have noticed the counties, one after another, as they declared, with united voice, their determination. Below we sketch the recent movements of some of our oldest and most respected communitie
, distrusted liege-servant, in the train of the North--is there a man in all her limits who dare assert that those noble matrons would have voted 90 to 45 for submission? If the age of eligibility to the Convention had been limited to thirty-three, as the maximum, and its members had been as youthful as those who composed the Legislatures of Virginia from 1770 to 1778, or as Jefferson, when he wrote the Declaration of Independence--is it within the range of credibility that such a body of Virginians, in the bloom of manhood, and in the fresh exuberance of patriotism, would have voted, 90 to 45, for submission?--The fame of Virginia is in the sear and yellow leaf; for her counsellors have passed the age of generous impulse, and entered the sombre years in which misanthropy and moody stubbornness are apt to predominate over all the better and nobler emotions. Like the old Bourbons, they are too opinionative to learn any new thing, or to accept any change in the temper of the times, or
happiness are invaded by a foe more deadly in its hatred than any foreign power, and more potent for evil — shall men sit and discuss the blessed attractions belonging to that foe, and permit ourselves to be beguiled, deltoded and deceived into syren security --The fact that Lincolns Cabinet keeps from your own State all its secrets — a State which has the largest interest at stake of all the Union--when secret sessions are constantly held, when no one is permitted to know its doings except their own political stripe — is that not enough to satisfy every Virginian that they are objects of suspicion. Virginians, rise in the power of your might, wipe out the foul stain put upon you by your servants, assume your own powers, and teach them, and all your would-be masters, that you still have flowing in your veins the blood of your renowned ancestors. Aye, put your foot firmly upon the necks of your deadliest foes, and stamp with infamy those who would sell you to that enemy. Virgin
