he evils which now overshadow the country existed previous to the secession of the Southern States. That was precipitate action; and yet we were told that the way to restore peace and prosperity to the country is to secede immediately.--In the canvass previous to the assembling of this Convention, he disagreed with those who told him that unless Virginia was out of the Union before the 4th of March, civil war, with all its horrors, would be desolating the land. He deplored the election of Lincoln, but still he knew that with an overwhelming majority of the people of the country against him, he was powerless for harm. He thought it a remarkable fact that every fresh item of news that flashed over the telegraphic wires, looking to the preservation of peace, seemed to disappoint the precipitators. At that time, the gentlemen who are now for waiting were the most urgent for precipitate action. The gentleman from Bedford, (Mr. Goode,) who is now for waiting, was then among the most ar
esume, however, that the principal object of the gentlemen who have brought out Mr. Sharp, had less reference to his capacity as a manager than to his peculiar political principles, and their object is, doubtless, to unite upon him (if possible) the strength of those who favor the secession of Virginia. In this they have reckoned without their host. Although we have not taken sides with this party, and are not ashamed to say that we are willing to wait a little farther the developments of Lincoln's administration before we favor this move, yet we are free to admit, that the party now in our city who do favor prompt action on this subject at present numbers many of those who are most deeply interested in the welfare of our city, and who sincerely seek her best interests; and we are farther satisfied that they know, while the election of Mr. Sharp, as the secession candidate, would show their strength, and, all other things being equal, would be a triumph of which they would be proud,
to share the fate of its sister Republic. The French squadron on its way to the Western archipelago, is believed to have reference to the accomplishment of this latter object. The grand triumph of Black Republicanism in the election of Abraham Lincoln, has proved the most destructive blow to the cause which brought it into power that ever was struck. The grand element of power which was used by the politicians to secure Lincoln's election was the anti-slavery sentiment in the North, and Lincoln's election was the anti-slavery sentiment in the North, and the result of that victory is the most disastrous defeat which the principles of anti-slavery ever suffered. In our own country, seven slave States are beyond its reach forever, and those which remain, remain only as a bulwark to those who have left, whilst abroad, the powerful moral support of England, who, for her own purposes, has ceaselessly fed the fires of abolition agitation, has been alienated by the Morrill tariff, and she gives it to be distinctly understood that she never sacrifices

The Covington times. This is the title of an excellent weekly paper, published in Covington, Allegheny co., by Holloway & Humphreys, which maintains with ability and spirit the policy of Virginia attaching herself to the Southern Union.--Upon the announcement of Lincoln's election, the editor of the Times boldly hoisted the Secession standard, without counting the costs or caring for consequences, and, at that time, stood almost alone in his county in that position. But he is now sustained by a powerful rally of the Allegheny people to his principles, and we hope will have abundance of material aid. We trust that the friends of the cause in our own region will give the bold Highlander their sympathy and support.

erstand the maintenance of the territory of the Republic unimpaired, the perpetuity of the Confederacy of the States, and the support of the Federal Government in the enforcement of the Federal authority and laws, and of the obligations individual States owe to the Confederacy." That is to say, the test of loyalty in the border States consists in adopting the coercive policy of the Republican party with respect to the seceded States, and at once giving an unqualified allegiance to the Lincoln Administration. And this, after having been treated with disdain, and suffering the rejection of their moderate demands in the Peace Conference and by Congress. The Commercial also observes that "until a better mind comes over the people of the Border States, it is useless to look for their assistance in the preservation of the Union, and the feeling will grow in the public mind that they are playing false to their friends at the North, and only gaining time to join the rebels of the
