The Convention. The conclusion of Ex-President Tyler's speech on the Peace Propositions, yesterday, was an able argument against their adoption as a basis of adjustment. He desires Virginia to present an ultimatum, containing full and ample demands, to the North and to the Border States, as the only condition of remaining in the Union. The propositions were referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Secession resolutions from Lunenburg and Wythe counties were presented by Messrs. Neblett and Kent. A motion to take up a resolution upon the military defence of the State, offered on the 28th ult., by Mr. Richardson, was lost for want of a quorum. The reports from the Committee on Federal Relations will come up for debate today.

House of Delegates, (search)
The Convention. A motion to take up Mr. Richardson's resolution of inquiry concerning the military strength of the Commonwealth, was yesterday voted down. Secession resolutions from the counties of Northampton, Mecklenburg, Pulaski, and Buckingham, were presented by the respective delegates, with suitable comments, and referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. The debate upon the committee's reports was opened by Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, in Committee of the Whole. He advocated the majority report, and made a strong argument in favor of the legal right of secession, but conceives it to be the duty of the Convention to make further efforts for the restoration of the Union. Mr. Randolph, of Richmond city, has the floor for to-day.
