s proposed by the report of the Committee on Resolutions, submitted amendments declaring that all attempts upon the part of the Government to "re-occupy," repossess, or re-take" any forts or any other property within the limits of the seceded States, would be acts of war, and that such acts would absolve Maryland and the Border States from all connection with the United States. Judge Chambers left the Chair and opposed these amendments as in reality opening the way to secession, and as initiating a programme that would not be sanctioned by the people of Maryland.
Strong speeches were made in support of the amendments, and for a time an "irrepressible conflict" threatened the harmony of the Conference.--Finally the subject was got rid of by postponing its consideration until the next meeting of the Conference."
The Commissioners appointed to Virginia, are Ex-Gov. E. L. Lowe, Judge Chambers, W. H. Norris, and Dr. J. Hanson Thomas.--They will arrive in Richmond to-morrow morning.
