operty and places " of the United States in any of the States that have withdrawn or may withdraw from the Union, or to collect the duties on imports in the same. Mr. Flournoy, of Halifax, took the floor, and made a powerful speech against submission and coercion. He believed that a bold and decided resistance on the part of Virginia would be a measure of peace, and lead eventually to a restoration of the Union. He desired the Convention to divide the question, and take that part of Mr. Cox's original resolution requiring a report on the subject of coercion. This subject he wished disposed of promptly and at once, and if an assurance could not be given that it was not the design of the Administration to use coercive measure, Virginia should never submit to see her Southern sisters forced. Mr. Flournoy passed a severe criticism upon Lincoln's Inaugural. the Peace Conference. A communication was received from the Executive, enclosing the report of the Virginia Commis
