The million Appropriation bill.

The bill appropriating one million of dollars for the defence of the State, which passed the House of Delegates at the beginning of the session, is still hung in the Senate. With the distinet declaration of coercion in Lincoln's Inaugural, and the unanimous declaration of the Virginia Legislature that Virginia will resist coercion, the bill putting the State in a condition of defence is permitted to sleep, and the Common wealth remains at the mercy of invaders.
