The Convention.

Several resolutions, induced by the Inaugural Address of Abraham Lincoln, were offered yesterday, but the Convention adjourned pending their consideration. The debate indicated a change of sentiment to some extent, and the Secession members seem more hopeful. The policy of the Conservatives, however, is to inaugurate a conference of the Border Slave States, upon the result of which the action of Virginia is to be based. The attendance of spectators, particularly of ladies, was very large yesterday.
