Evening session. The Committee re-assembled at 4 o'clock, and Mr. Macfarland resumed his remarks. He said he had, in the morning, invited the attention of the Committee to a practical view of the method by which the great question now agitating the country might be definitely settled. His object was to show that if the subject of slavery was to be taken out of the halls of legislation, and withdrawn from the fields of agitation, we might yet live on terms of friendship and respect wiosed to quarrel with her on that account.--He apprehended that, as strong as the Southern Confederacy was, she would not object to an addition to her strength, if it could be done with perfect security and without sacrifice of principle. Mr. Macfarland went on with an elaborate argument on the question of the Tariff, to show that the Southern Confederacy was not entitled to any particular favor from Virginia upon the ground of her avowed policy of free trade; yet he was so firmly attached b
The Convention. The question of ad valorent taxation upon slaves was further debated yesterday, but no action was taken.

Mr. Scott, of Fauquier, has the floor for to-day.
