Alabama Convention.

Montgomery, Ala., Jan. 29.
--The Convention held a secret session last night, and adopted a resolution instructing its deputies to the Southern Congress to insist upon the enactment of such measures as will forever prevent the re-opening of the African slave trade.

To-day it passed a supplementary ordinance, authorizing the Governor to carry into effect the ordinance for protecting the defences in the Gulf; also, an ordinance adopting, as the laws of Alabama, the laws of the United States relative to patents, so as to secure rights of invention to the citizens of the Southern Confederacy.

The Convention then adjourned until the 4th of March.
