The Convention.

Several resolutions on the National difficulties were offered yesterday, and referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Chambliss made some forcible remarks in opposition to the Peace Conference propositions, and Mr. Carlile was quite as decided on the opposite side. Mr. Brown, of Preston, offered a resolution censuring Senators Mason and Hunter for their course in regard to the same propositions. It was laid on the table on Mr. Brown's motion, but will be called up at a convenient opportunity. A resolution to print 10,000 copies of the addresses of the Southern Commissioners was laid on the table, but subsequently called up, amended by the substitution of a smaller number, and passed. Mr. Willey made a speech on the Moore resolutions, taking ground against secession.
