The officers of the meeting were among the most respectable gentlemen of the county; and it gave him pleasure to announce that so far as he was concerned, his course would conform to the sentiments there expressed. The resolutions (which favor immediate secession and protest against any change in the system of taxation at this time, &c.) were, at the request of Mr. Goode, laid on the table. Mr. Harvie, of Amelia, presented a series of resolutions adopted by a large meeting of the citizens of that county — the largest he ever saw there; which resolutions, favoring immediate secession, and opposing any adjournment to a future day without settling this matter, were, he said, adopted with entire unanimity. Laid on the table and ordered to be printed. Mr. Holcombe, of Albemarle, desired to make a statement as an act of justice to his colleague, Mr. Southall. He understood that gentleman's posi

B.) did not need instructions, for he knew the sentiments of his constituents. Mr. Early made a reply, and still protested against the printing of matter which had nothing to do with the business of this Convention. Mr. Blakey merely asked that the resolutions should take the course which others had taken. With regard to the question previously asked by the gentleman, he would say that if there was a candidate for Congress in his county, he was not aware of it. Mr. Morton, of Orange, advocated the motion to print and refer. Mr. Hall, of Wetzel, called attention to the fact that the gentleman from Franklin had voted for the printing of a series of Black Republican resolutions heretofore offered in this Convention. Mr. Early was not aware that any such resolutions had been offered. Mr. Hall said he alluded to a series of resolutions offered by the member from Marshall, (Mr. Burley).

He (Mr. Tredway) thought it perfectly natural that England, the worst enemy of the South, should recognize any policy foreshadowing the destruction of this country. She dare not attack us united; but divided, it would be easier for her to carry into effect her cherished desire to conquer the continent. He called attention to the fleets now being fitted out by foreign Governments for the Gulf of Mexico. Spain might raise an issue in regard to Cuba, and France and England might desire to strike at the same time against some portion of the United States. --There were difficulties with Great Britain yet unadjusted, and all these things added to the dangers of division here.

With regard to the credit of the United States Government, he read from an opinion of George Peabody, the London banker, showing the necessity of concessions on the part of the North and compromise on the part of the South, in order to preserve the credit of either section abroad, which would be inevitably destroyed in the event of a collision between the two.

Evening session. The Committee was called to order at 4 o'clock P. M. Mr. Tredway resumed his remarks, proceeding first to correct any misapprehension which might have existed in reference to his reply to the gentleman from Bedford, (Mr. Goode,) this morning. The position which he occupied was not that "nobody had been hurt" by the success of the Black Republican party, but that the prophesied evils had not come to pass. He went on the advise the policy of waiting until the experimadvanced by Mr. Baldwin, that the majority should rule, was erroneous and untenable, he submitted a motion that the Committee rise. The motion was agreed to, and the Committee rose and reported progress. In Convention. Mr. Goode, of Bedford, said that in obedience to the request of a portion of his constituents, he would present the proceedings of two public meetings in his county.

Mr. Dorman, of Rockbridge, said that as the member from Madison had incorporated the resolutions in his remarks, they would have been printed without a motion. Mr. Borst, of Page, advocated the motion. A series of resolutions adopted in the city of Petersburg were ordered to be printed, and yet they contained no word of instructions. The question was them put, and carried in the affirmative. Mr. Nelson, of Clark, desired to correct some errors in the report of his speech in the Richmond Enquirer. H

Laid on the table and ordered to be printed. Mr. Holcombe, of Albemarle, desired to make a statement as an act of justice to his colleague, Mr. Southall. He understood that gentleman's position during the canvass to be precisely the same as that stated by him this morning. He did not hear his speech at Scottsville, but was satisfied, from the written as well as oral addresses of Mr. Southall, that the highly respectable gentlemen who composed that meeting were under a misapprehension. Mr. Blakey, of Madison, presented a series of resolutions adopted by one of the largest meetings ever held in that county. He said the gentlemen who participated were of the highest respectability. They loved the Union, and would still adhere to it if it was to be administered in the spirit of the fathers; but

He intended to exhaust every honorable effort to save the Union; but if the North refused to meet us in this spirit of conciliation, then he would say, unhesitatingly, go with the South. Mr. Tredway closed by reiterating the assurance that if any man could present a feasible plan for the reconstruction of the Union, and a settlement of differences, he would willingly accept it. Mr. Montague, of Middlesex, took the floor, and said he had some views to offer, but it would be utterly impossible for him to close this evening. He would, however, if there was no objection, commence his remarks, and conclude to-morrow. No objection being made, Mr. Montague went on to congratulate the gentleman who had last spoken, for he believed he would soon be ready to go with him South. All the gentlemen who had spoken on the other side, admitted that the Government, as it now stands, does not give saf
