The Convention.

A resolution offered yesterday by Colonel Richardson, of Hanover, seeking further information relative to the military force of the State, was laid on the table, but will probably be called up at a convenient opportunity. The consideration of Mr. Moore's resolutions on the National troubles was resumed, and Mr. Morton made a forcible secession speech, in the course of which he alluded, in no complimentary terms, to the resolutions adopted by the Peace Conference at Washington. Mr. Baylor, of Augusta, afterwards commenced a speech on the "Union" side of the question, and will conclude to-day.

It was rumored yesterday that the Committee on Federal Relations were ready to make a report, but nothing of the sort transpired.
