take action in Convention and send their Commissioners. Serenade to Senator Pugh. Senator Pugh was serenaded at Washington Saturday night. While thanking his friends for the honor conferred, he said the peace of the country could not be restored by the sword. The shedding of a single drop of blood would make dissolution inevitable and the reconstruction of the Union impossible.--It was only by concession that peace could be produced. Messrs. Crittenden, Vallandigham, Pendleton, Mallory, Woodson and Segar also made speeches, sustaining the views of Mr. Pugh, whose senatorial speech has been much commended. The National fast day. Gov.

He said the country was disrupted, and that the signs of the times impressed on them the necessity of speedy action. Delays are dangerous. Mr. Mallory, of Brunswick, said he had been unanimously instructed by his constituents to vote for a Convention. The time fixed in the bill for its assembling was February 7th. Any shorter time lessened the period within which the people would have to canvass the merits of candidates. Mr. Dickinson was waiting for instructions from his constituents. He wished the action of the House to be deliberate, not hasty. He wanted time. Mr. Segar withdrew his motion to lay on the table, with the

Scott thinks may hold out until relief is obtained.--The other two forts are in possession of the Revolutionists. There are no troops at Tortugas. Captain Meigs and a few laborers are in charge. A company was recently ordered there from Boston, and it is hoped reached it before the intended descent of the Floridans was made Senator Mallory lately obtained from the proper bureau a detailed statement of the condition of this work, without the object for which it was intended being suspected at the time. Governor Ellis, of North Carolina, has written to the President, informing him that the forts which were recently seized without authority will be promptly restored to the custody of the Government, accompanied by a becoming expression of his condemnation of the lawless act.
