Louisville, April 17, says: ‘ An extra meeting of the City Council was held this evening, and $50,000 appropriated to arm the city. ’ It is rumored that a steamer, with Government arms, is en route from St. Louis to Newport, Ky. It is likely that she will be stopped on her trip. Ex-Vice President Breckinridge writes from Richmond, Ky., to a friend here, as follows: ‘"Kentucky should call a Convention without delay, and Lincoln's extra session of Congress should be confronted by fifteen States. This alone can prevent a general civil war. "’ The abhorrence to Lincoln's proclamation is intense amongst the people. Breckinridge will speak in Lexington to-morrow night, and at Louisville on Saturday.
