Mr. Early in advocating his substitute, said he was not to be affected by telegraphic dispatches. He held that the Convention had no authority to present an ultimatum to the North. A division of the question was called for, and the Committee refused to strike out the 11th resolution, thus defeating the substitute. Mr. Tarr, of Brooke, moved to amend by striking out the words "feel compelled to resume the powers granted by her under the Constitution of the United States, and to throw herself upon her reserved rights," and inserting "take such action as she may deem necessary to the maintenance of her honor and the protection of her interests." Mr. Tarr advocated his amendment, which was rejected — yeas 39, nays 78. Mr. Morton, of Orange, moved to strike out the words in the resolution "at their earliest convenience,"

Maryland. --In the Maryland Senate on Wednesday, the resolution to appoint committees to visit Presidents Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, and the Governors of Virginia and Pennsylvania, were filled by electing Messrs. Brooke, Yellott, McKaig and Lynch as the committee on the part of the Senate, and ordered to a third reading.
Confederate Congress. --The following is a summary of proceedings on the 11th inst.: Mr. Ochiltree, of Texas, introduced a resolution instructing the Committee on Indian Affairs to report on the propriety of the Confederacy taking charge of and providing for the Indians upon the reserves in Texas. Mr. Brooke, of Mississippi, reported a bill establishing a Patent Office. Congress then went into secret session. Subsequently secrecy was removed from a Message of the President communicating to Congress a copy of a letter from Hon. John A. Campbell, formerly Judge of the Supreme Court of the United States, which he addressed to Wm. H. Seward, pending the negotiations with the Southern Commissioners at Washington. Judge Campbell acted as a voluntary mediator between the two Governments, for the purpose of preventing a collision, and he charged Seward with duplicity during the whole correspondence.

ot, certainly on some day of next week, to convene, when required by the public interests, in Richmond. Heretofore, the supervision of all matters connected with patents has been confided to the Department of Justice, presided over by the able and amiable Benjamin, but the great number of application, although confined under the law to citizens of this Confederacy, has shown to Congress the necessity for the prompt organization of a Bureau of Patents. And on yesterday, in public session, Mr. Brooke, chairman of the committee on the subject, reported a bill to establish a Patent Office, and to provide for the "granting and Issuance of patents for new and useful discoveries, improvements and designs" The bill contains a great number of sections, occupying 38 or 39 pages of Government foolscap printing.--A number of its features are very similar in all respects to the Patent Office law of the United States. Several sections of it met with opposition, and the one making an appropriation
