. Washington, Feb, 5. --Senate.--A joint resolution was passed for a meeting of the two Houses to count the Presidential ballot. The usual number of peace memorials was presented. Mr. Johnson, of Tennessee, addressed the Senate on the President's message. He opposed secession. He indicated the sympathy exhibited yesterday at the withdrawal of the Louisiana Senators. He said it was well gotten up, and well acted. He was exceedingly bitter against the seceding States, South Carolina in particular, and attacked Senator Benjamin's position with great vehemence. House.--The certificate of the election of Farnsworth, delegate from the Territory of Colorado, was presented and referred. Mr. Taylor, of La., presented the Ordinance of Secession of his State, which was read. In his remarks he intimated that amendments to the Constitution would have the effect of restoring her to the Union, but that the resolutions of the Committee of Thirty-Three would not be acce
Conventions in February. --During the month of February elections and Conventions will be held in nearly every one of the Southern States. Like South Carolina in the cotton States, Virginia leads off in the border movement. The following is a calender of the movements in the Southern States for the month of February: Feb. 4. Congress of Cotton States at Montgomery, Alva. Feb. 4. Conference proposed by Virginia at Washington. Feb. 4. Virginia, election for Convention. Feb. 9. Tennessee, election for Convention. Feb. 13. Virginia, Convention meets. Feb. 18. Arkansas, election for Convention. Feb. 18. Missouri, election for Convention. Feb. 25. Tennessee, Convention meets. Feb. 28. North Carolina, election for Convention. Feb. 28. Missouri, Convention meets. The Arkansas Convention, (if called by the people,) will meet March 4th, and the North Carolina Convention on the succeeding Monday, March 11th. No action has yet bee
e doubts that the South is in earnest in her present attitude, a visit to the Tredegar Works, in this city, will dispel the delusion. Even the "eminent Seward" might learn something from a survey of operations there at the present time. We have heretofore noticed the shipment of formidable implements of war to the seceding States, and there are more of the same sort in preparation. Two ten-inch Columbiads, destined for Alabama, are nearly completed; and two fierce-looking mortars, for South Carolina, will shortly be ready for the troops of that Republic. In the casting of one mortar and one gun, last week, 23,000 pounds of metal were used. Shell and cannon shot lay about promiscuously and in heaps, and a large number of men are engaged in the manufacture of these destructive messengers. Several cannon, of large and small calibre, are in process of manufacture, or already completed, and in another department the gun-carriages are getting ready, under the hands of competent workmen
Southern Congress, Montgomery, Ala., Feb. 5. --The Convention met at noon. R. W. Barn well, of South Carolina, was chosen temporary Chairman. An impressive prayer was delivered by Rev. Basil May. On motion of Mr. Rhett, Howell Cobb, of Ga., was chosen permanent President. Johnson F. Hooper, of the Mail, was elected Secretary. All the delegates were present except F. Martin, of Fla. In the course of Mr. Cobb's address on taking the chair, he said. The occasion which has assembled us together is one of no ordinary character. We meet as representatives of sovereign and independent States, who by their solemn judgment have dissolved all the political associations which connect them with the Government of the United States. It is now a fixed and irrevocable fact that the separation is perfect, complete and perpetual. The great duty now imposed is to provide a Government for our future security and protection. We can and should extend our late sist
If there be, indeed, no choice but between secession and civil war, what true Republican can hesitate to acquiesce in secession? The latest aspects of the situation are sufficiently gloomy to make the question a very practical one. South Carolina is now de facto a separate State, with its own Legislature, Judges, Magistrates and Tax-Collectors — its own flag, its own army, and its own Ambassaders at the seat of the Government from which it has revolted. It is true that a body of Unitess, in regard to the negro population.--There is not a more true and loyal population in the world than the slaves of the Southern States. The experiment of John Brown illustrated that fact, but it has been demonstrated on a larger scale in South Carolina.--A member of the Virginia Legislature, who has recently returned from that State, informs us that the blacks are as unanimous as the whites for secession, and quite as anxious for a fight. Even the New York Tribune is forced at last to admi
