tively, for the consideration of the grave matters of interest which are common to all. That, in our opinion, the use of force directly or indirectly by the other States through the Federal Government, to compel any State to remain in the Union, or to force any Federal law within her limits after she has withdrawn from the Union, must inevitably lead to hostilities, in which Virginia will be constrained, in the present crisis, to take part against the Federal Government. In Lewis county, Va., a meeting was held last week at which resolutions were adopted in favor of an amendment of the Federal Constitution, and requesting our representatives in Congress to strive to effect one. It was further resolved that "we will cling to the Constitution and the Union as the best guarantees of our peace and safety, until all peaceable and constitutional remedies shall have been exhausted in the settlement of the momentous questions now agitating the nation, and when all efforts at reco

last night bring some further details of the proceedings in the South Carolina State Convention Monday, of which a very full telegraphic summan, we have all come here to preserve the honor and character of South Carolina. If anything has been decided by the late election, it is that South Carolina must be taken out of this Confederacy in as speedy a manner as possible. I trust that nothing may interfere; no outside pxas, and from every other Southern State there, was to take out South Carolina the instant you can; and now the members are panic struck, and from the North, and after stating the circumstances under which South Carolina entered the Confederacy, says: There is one thing certain, and I think it due to the country to say in advance, that South Carolina is resolved to assert her separate independence, and, as she accede of the Union by the 4th of March, regarding it as certain that South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi will have seceded be

the surroundings of the Territory belonging to the Republic; in view of the fact that for four years, at least, freedom will have fair play; and in view, also, of two other elements of emigration and the census — this, we say, almost constrains us to believe that we may now confide the future of the Territories to the intelligence and patriotism of those who are to inhabit them. Or if this is inadmissible, there is another, which contemplates a division of the remaining territory of the United States, as in 1820, when the Missouri Compromise line was established. To this we shall be told that the compact was violated, and that the South cannot be trusted. Perhaps it would be so again, but not in our generation, or the next, nor indeed until the lessons of the last six years have been forgotten. Meetings in Virginia.

Has it protected us from the cupidity and avarice of the Northern people, who, for 35 years, have imposed upon us the burden of sustaining this government, chiefly upon the South? Has it saved us from Abolition petitions, intended to annoy and insult us on the very floors of Congress? Has that instrument enabled us to acquire one foot of the territory of Mexico, where the South furnished three-fourths of the men and four-fifths of their graves? Has it thrown any obstacle around us to the conversion of California into a free-soil State, without any previous territorial existence, without any defined boundaries? Did it throw any protection around the Southern settlers of Kansas, when the soil of that Territory was invaded by emigrants, armed in a crusade against the South by the Northern people; when even their women contributed Colt's revolvers to

a little judicious, if I may be allowed the use of the provincialism. I entreat the gentlemen to look at this matter. I am prepared, the instant the body passes the Ordinance of Secession, if the gentlemen desire it, to remove to any other point, and to go on and perfect our work; but I would not budge an inch from this, until we have sundered every tie that binds us to the Confederacy. [Great applause.] Inaugural of Gov. Pickens. The inaugural of Gov. Pickens, delivered at Columbia, S. C., on Monday, recites the wrongs sustained by the South from the North, and after stating the circumstances under which South Carolina entered the Confederacy, says: There is one thing certain, and I think it due to the country to say in advance, that South Carolina is resolved to assert her separate independence, and, as she acceded separately to the compact of Union, so she will most assuredly secede, separately and alone, be the consequences what they may; and I think it right to

In Fredericksburg, Va., Monday, a meeting was held, at which a State Convention was favored. Among the resolutions adopted, are the two following: That without assuming to ourselves the right to utter complaint against any State for the course she may think proper to take in the vindication of her rights and honor, and insisting that such diversities of opinion and action as is natural should occur among the Southern States under the exigency of existing circumstances, should be considered by us in a

He then proceeds to mmate her secession at the same time that they shall have consummated theirs. If I am not mistaken in the sentiment of Tennessee, our people require an honest effort to be made to save the Union by demanding additional guaranties, and it is only whrt shall have failed that they propose to resort to secession. If I am right in this understanding of the sentiment of Tennessee, I see no necessity for any hasty or inconsiderate action. Let us move in the perilous crisis with firmness and determ

Has not that instrument been trodden under their very feet by every Northern State by placing on their books statutes nullifying the laws for the recovery of fugitive slaves?
