hat one thing should be done before he would consent to remain in the present position. Restore the glorious old Union as it was, if it could be done. Any proposition that did less than this, he would fight to the very death. He begged gentlemen to remember that there were now three Unions--one South, one North, and the old Union that was destroyed. Virginia was not now in the Union, for that was gone; and no proposition that did not restore it, would suit his views. Mr. Leake, of Goochland, followed, in a speech denunciatory of the Peace Conference propositions. In the course of his remarks he alluded to a resolution introduced early in the session, and now on the table, censuring Senators Mason and Hunter for their course in respect to the propositions. He hoped, since the evidence that had been adduced to-day that they were not acceptable to the Convention, that the mover would withdraw it, and introduce another, complimenting the Senators upon their action. He contende

Mr. Early moved to amend by striking out the word " restore"in the last sentence, and inserting the word"preserve," Rejected. Mr. Leake, of Goochland, moved to further amend the resolution by adding thereto the following: "And the people of the non-slaveholding States must abstain from all interference with the institution of slavery as it exists in any of the States, or in any of the common territory; and there must be an entire abandonment of all political organizations based upon the principle of hostility to Southern institutions." Pending the consideration of this amendment the hour for recess arrived.
Evening session, The Committee re-assembled at 4 o'clock. Mr. Leake took the floor and advocated his amendment, offered previous to the recess.-- He contended that none of the propositions reported by the Committee on Federal Relations were sufficient to reach the root of the evil. Mr. Johnson, of Richmond, said he could not give his consent to the amendment, for it seemed to him that the gentleman from Goochland contemplated the execution of the higher law himself, to which he had objected, by going behind the Constitution and taking the matter into his own hands. It would be enough for him (Mr. J.) if he could obtain from a majority of the Northern people guarantees of sound constitutional amendments which would put at rest the question now agitating this too much distracted country.--He briefly stated his objections to the amendment, which he hoped would not be adopted. Mr. Leake replied, expressing his belief that the gentleman from Richmond had misapprehend

Mr. Morton proceeded to explain his amendment, which required but few words. He then took ground against the policy adopted by members on the Union side, which opposed any independent, separate action of Virginia until after a consultation with the Border States. His argument was cut short by the expiration of his time. Mr. Leake, of Goochland, said a word or two in opposition to the amendment, thus giving Mr. Morton an opportunity to resume. Mr. Morton controverted the theory of a Border Conference, proposed by the gentleman from Fauquier, (Mr. Scott.) His own position was, secession first, and co-operation afterwards. Experience had demonstrated its propriety, in the action of the Southern States which presented an example unparalleled in the history of nations. They had a permanent Government, with a credit to-day high
