The Convention.

A resolution was offered yesterday, by Mr. Fisher, of Northampton, but not acted on, for the appointment of a committee to inquire into the expediency of making an appropriation for the defence of the Common wealth.--Mr. Goggin finished his speech on the great question of the day, and was followed by Mr. Sheffey, of Smythe, who took strong ground against coercion. A communication from the Executive, embodying a statement from the Adjutant General, of the military force of the State, will be found in our report. A resolution offered by Mr. Wilson, of Harrison, relative to the sale of State bonds, was laid on the table. Mr. Morton, of Orange, has the floor this morning.
