The Convention.

No progress was made by the Convention yesterday in the effort to place Virginia in an attitude of resistance to coercion; but some very good speeches were made on the resolutions. There was a disposition to bring the question to a vote, when Mr. Carlile, who desires to make a speech to-day, moved an adjournment, which was carried. The report of the special committee, relative to movements of men and arms by the General Government, and the report of the Peace Commissioners, will be found in the regular proceedings. More resolutions were yesterday referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. It is not to be wondered at that the report of the committee is delayed. If they have to read and investigate all the resolutions that are referred to them.
