Clark consolidated the conservatives, and together these elected on the 18th of February a Convention not one member of which would say that he was in favor of the secession of Missouri.

compromise, and the other border slaveholding States should thereupon secede, Missouri would not hesitate to go with them. For this motion only 23 members of the convention voted. One after another the convention voted down all amendments or modifications of the report of the committee, and, after a short discussion, adopted it as a whole. It then adjourned subject to the call of a committee which was appointed for that purpose. The real sentiment of the convention was expressed by William A. Hall when he said: Our feelings and sympathies may incline us to go with the South, in the event of a separation. But feeling is temporary—interest is permanent. In the proceedings of the convention the ordinary courtesies of life were observed, but the intent of what it did was radically anti-Southern. The leaders talked very much as they talked in the campaign that preceded their election as delegates, but what they did was what Frank Blair wanted them to do. Their action marked the abs

Mr. Price, of Greenbrier, called the previous question, which was sustained, and the resolution was then adopted. Equality of taxation. The Convention proceeded to the consideration of unfinished business, namely, the resolutions of Mr. Willey, of Monongahela, in regard to the subjects of taxation and representation. Mr. Hall, of Marion, being entitled to the floor, addressed the Convention in favor of immediate action. He thought it due to those who desired a change in the organic law, that the committees contemplated by the resolutions should be appointed to make the necessary inquiries. His people demanded that the question should be settled before action was had upon matters of National interest. When they were thus placed upon an equality with the people of other sections, they would stand shoulder to sh

After the raising of the flag, the Chairman introduced the Hon. D. C. Dejarnette, and after him Mr. Hall, of Wetzell. Both of these gentlemen spoke very well, and received the close attention of the audience, and renewed and loud applause. At 2 o'clock, dinner was announced, and the company sat down to an excellent bill of fare, among which we saet that they are not fully acted up to by the Convention now in session in Richmond. The resolution was adopted unanimously. On motion of Mr. Edwin Williams, it was Resolved, That the thanks of this meeting be tendered to the Hon. Mr. Hall, of Wetzel, for the able address delivered to-day, and that we offer him a cordial welcome to the hospitalities and friendship of the people of Chesterfield. Short addresses were then made, in response to calls, by Messrs. Friend, Nash, Ruf
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.
