Addresses were promised from Messrs.Geo. W. Summers, John B. Baldwin, Timothy Rives, John M. Botts, and Geo. W. Brent.--Though no publication was made in the newspapers, the Hall was crowded, at the hour named, with a large and enthusiastic assemblage of respectable and staid citizens. The meeting was called to order by John H. Gilmer, Esq., who introduced to the meeting Maj. Jubal A. Early, Delegate to the Convention from Franklin county, who delivered a spirited and able address, replate with sentiments of devotion to "the Union, the Constitution and the laws," and opposition to secession and disunion. He was followed by Waitman P. Willey, Esq., of Montagalla county, George W. Berne, Esq., of Alexandria, and Marmaduke Johnson, Esq., of Richmond, all of w

Scenes at the Institute. --The "Union" ladies on Saturday inaugurated a system at the Convention which has heretofore been confined to theatrical circles, in the bestowal of a floral wreath upon Col. Baldwin, of Augusta, who had just closed his argument against secession. Mr. Critcher, of Westmoreland, who made the presentation speech, read a poetical tribute from the ladies, the point of which was that woman deems Union right, and that it is man's duty to support her. While Col. Baldwin Col. Baldwin was making an eloquent reply, somebody in the gallery trod on a dog's appendage, and the fierce "bow wow — ki yi," for a time completely eclipsed the oratorical peroration to the stripes and stars. Another incident on Saturday transpired while Mr. Bruce, of Halifax, was making an argument in favor of secession. A troop of horsemen from Chesterfield passed by the building, the trumpeter blowing "Yankee Doodle" with all his might and main, which created some merriment on the Union side, but
The Convention. A resolution was adopted on Saturday to meet at 10 o'clock A. M.; to take a recess at 2 o'clock, and meet again at 4 o'clock P. M. Secession resolutions, adopted by the people of Dinwiddie, Greene, Spotsylvania, and Culpeper, were presented by the delegates representing those counties. Mr. Baldwin finished his speech against secession and in favor of the majority report. He was followed by Mr. Bruce, of Halifax, who will conclude to-day. Mr. Hall, of Marion, continued his remarks in favor of an ad valorem tax upon slaves.--Mr. Dormay, of Rockbridge, introduced a resolution, which was laid on the table, recommending a license tax on Northern productions, in retaliation for the Personal Liberty bills in vogue in the Northern States.

Grand political demonstration. --The Conservatives — those who have an abiding faith in "the Union, the Constitution, and the enforcement of the laws"--propose to have a grand demonstration at the African Church to-night. The friends of cohesion will be addressed by John B. Baldwin, Esq., of Augusta; Jas. B. Dorman, Esq., of Rockbridge; Tim Rives, Esq., of Prince George, and a number of other distinguished gentlemen.--The meeting will, no doubt, have a tendency to cement anew those bonds of unity which, it may be rightly conjectured, from recent events, want all the glueing together they will be likely to obtain here or elsewhere.
