Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.public meeting — College military companies. Hampden Sidney College, Va., Jan, 21st. There was a meeting of the "sovereigns" of Prince Edward, at the court-house to-day, to nominate representatives to the Convention. Messrs. Thornton, Treadway and Wishum were names mentioned, but the nomination was deferred. There seemed to be quite a disunion sentiment abroad, and men seemed to be thinking that they ought to act. By the way, in to-day's Dispatch I see a communication from "Rutherford," which refers to a military company organized at College. The company was organized, but the faculty, "noble and reverend senieurs," laid some unpalatable restrictions upon it, and it was abolished. The students, however, have determined to enlist in various volunteer companies in case of a war, and to fight boldly.--At the court-house, to-day, there were but one or two papers going around to get up companies--one for a cavalry company. It is r

Haymond of Marion, Goggin of Bedford, Brown of Preston, Chambliss of Greensville and Sussex, Caperion of Monroe, Ambler of Louisa, Gray of Rockbridge, Hunton of Prince William, Campbell of Washington, Treadway of Pittsylvania, Hall of Lancaster, Sheffey of Smythe, and Patrick of Kanawha. The President submitted a package of election returns, which were referred to the appropriate committee. Resolutions.

"Very respectfully, your obd't. serv't, "N. Holt, Secretary of War." Mr. Early moved that 10,000 copies of the report be printed for the use of the members. Negatived.

It reads as follows: 1. Be it Resolved and Declared by the People of the State of Virginia, in Convention Assembled, That the States which composed the United States of America, when the Federal Constitution was formed, were independent sovereignties, and in a
en elect by districts. Mr. Scott moved to amend by selecting one nominee for the State at large from East, and the other from the West, of the Blue Ridge. A division of the various questions before the Convention was called for. Mr. Treadway dissected the whole subject of electing to offices in a vein of keen crony. The division was not ordered. The first proposition to elect two members at large was adopted. The second proposition, in reference to locality, was carried Mr. Montague moved to lay the whole subject on the table. Not carried. The resolution was then adopted. Nominations were now ordered to be made for the election of members in vacant Congressional Districts. Richmond District. Mr. Treadway nominated Hon. James A. Seddon, of Goochland. Withdrawn. Mr. Johnson nominated Mr. William H. Macfarland. Mr. Harris nominated Hon. D. C. Dejarnette, of Caroline. Messrs. Neeson and Ambler favored the election of Mr. Dejarnette.
followed Mr. Barbour in support of paying this interest as a necessity required by the honor of the State. Mr. Montague denied that the repudiation would be sanctioned by any principle of international or public law. Were this proposition correct, (which we doubt,) we should, as soon as possible, "become a law unto ourselves," and follow the commonest dictates of nature in our self-preservation. The discussion was conducted by Messrs. McFarland and Garnett against, and Messrs. Conrad, Treadway and Barbour in favor of the ordinance. Mr. J. Barbour's rejoinder was marked by great ability and force, and produced quite an impression. Mr. Morton advocated a substitute proposing that the interest be paid in Richmond in currency. Mr. Ambler moved to amend the original ordinance. At this point of the discussion Mr. Beanch moved an adjournment. Not carried. Mr. Pendleton moved a postponement of the ordinance and amendment for ten minutes. No quorum.--A motion to adjourn was carr
Captains William J. Sergeant, J. P. Fitzgerald, and Lieutenant E. C. Crump. The vote is small, in consequence of a large number of the men being absent on detached service and the very inclement weather. The 23d, with a portion of Shumaker's and Anderson's Batteries, gave the following vote: Davis and Stephens, 164.

Rejection — ayes 46, noes 63. The question recurred on Mr. Nelson's amendment, viz: "or who has not been a naturalized citizen of either of the Confederate States for twelve years next preceding he said elections"--and Mr. Treadway offered a substitute, which was rejected, and he previous question having been or cred, Mr. Nelson's amendment was also defeated — ayes 44, noes 60.
