om Fauquier was a palpable violation of a constitutional obligation. The vote was then taken, and Mr. Wise's amendment was rejected-- yeas 27, nays 100. Mr. Macfarland, of Richmond, moved to further amend Mr. Scott's amendment by striking out all after the word add "Arkansas""to which he would add "and Virginia""and insertina Congress composed of delegates from the Confederated and other States aforesaid, to recommend a Constitution under which their union can be effected." Mr. Macfarland supported his amendment in an able argument, replying to the position assumed by the gentleman from Kanawha, (Mr. Summers.) The amendment was then put to vote, and defeated — ayes 43; noes 75. Mr. Macfarland moved to amend Mr. Scott's amendment by striking out the word "and" after the word "Missouri," indicating his purpose to move a further amendment by adding "and Virginia." The Committee refused to strike out. Mr. Slaughter, of Campbell, moved to amend Mr. Scott's amendmen
se should be pursued, not because our minds were not unalterably made up. Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, was in favor of going into secret session. It might be important to preserve secrecy for the time as to the course which Virginia would pursue. It was all important that there should be unanimity. The effect of this proposition would be that members would have an opportunity for a free comparison of views. He appealed to Messrs. Scott and Baldwin to withdraw their objections. Mr. Macfarland, of Richmond, opposed the motion to go into secret session. It would be an innovation upon the established usages of the State, and unless there were some better reason than had been advanced, he should persist in his objection. The exaggerated reports which would leak out would tend to increase the public anxiety, which it should be our purpose to allay. By the events of the day, we were reduced to the necessity of standing upon our rights, or of giving up everything. He was therefo

all his clergy, as any man or set of men South of the Potomac. Such discriminations are, of course, unintentional, but they may coefate mischievously.] Mr. Macfarland, of Richmond, (who, we presume, from his frequent calls on the Chair and large budget of documents, is the custos peen of our Commonwealth,) submitted a resolhe first bank in all our experience that, in all cases of public emergency, did not take care of itself first, its stockholders and creditors afterwards. But Mr. Macfarland is a lawyer, and we are proud to add, of our own knowledge, an eminent one, and, of course, he will hang by the precedents. Can't he find out some precedent plundered, whose families are driven from their homes, and who are now here fugitives and moneyless by the mercenary cut-throats of Lincoln and Scott? Come, Mr. Macfarland, enlarge your beneficent views and give us all the benefit of your liberal suggestion.] Quite an interesting debate sprung up on a motion made by the cha
pronounced by Rev. J. B. Duncan, of the Methodist Church. Mr. Macfarland submitted several ordinances from the Committee on Finance. yment had not occasionally sold specie to private individuals? Mr. Macfarland answered 'No.' The ordinance was laid upon the table and orderee for more mature consideration. After a lengthy speech by Mr. Macfarland, Mr. Ambler propounded a question, whether money due from the NSouth has not been seized in Washington, as contraband of war? Mr. Macfarland answered "No." [We unhesitatingly say "yes," and we cannot understand why Mr. Macfarland should be ignorant of the fact.] Mr. Ambler replied, and in response to a question from Mr. Macfarland, whetherMr. Macfarland, whether England ever refused to pay her debts, and all pecuniary obligations to France, even while engaged in war with that nation? Mr. A. said he hof money to the enemy. Mr. Ambler was thus enabled to reply to Mr. Macfarland, the last-named gentleman being completely dumb-foundered by th
ck and white. Mr. Baldwin was not, however, sustained by the House. Mr. Moore. of Rockbridge, did not think there was sufficient evidence to expel Mr. Brown. Mr. Macfarland followed in the same strain, and "apprehended" several times that we should not thus summarily condemn Mr. Brown. Mr. Hall, of Wetzel county, replied to Mr. MMr. Macfarland, by remarking that "fellow feeling makes us wontons kind" Mr. Macfarland here desired to know what Mr. Hall meant by his remark. Mr. Hall rejoined, "I meant, sir, just what I did. You and your friends always went with Brown while he was here, and now when he is proved to be a traitor, you wish to vindicate him." Mr. AMr. Macfarland here desired to know what Mr. Hall meant by his remark. Mr. Hall rejoined, "I meant, sir, just what I did. You and your friends always went with Brown while he was here, and now when he is proved to be a traitor, you wish to vindicate him." Mr. A. M. Barbour vindicated Mr. Brown on reasons of personal friendship Mr. Timothy Rives spoke also in reference of Mr. Brown. Mr. R. E. Scott followed in a speech in which he maintained that there is not sufficient evidence to criminate Mr. Brown. At 9 o'clock a call of the House was ordered, and excuses made for absent members
Fifteenth day. Richmond, June 29. At the usual hour the Convention was called to order--Mr. Southall in the Chair.--Prayer was offered up by Rev. Mr. Woodbridge. The committees were first called upon in regular order. Mr. Macfarland, from the Committee on finance, reported an ordinance in reference to the oath to be taken by those having evidences of State debts. An ordinance providing that the military movements of this State having been transferred to the Confederate Government, the power of the Governor to appoint Aids shall be so far restricted as to authorize him to appoint only two who shall receive pay. It was moved to amend to increase the number from two to seven. Amended to five, and that they shall have the rank of Lieutenant Colonel of Cavalry, but only — members shall be entitled to pay. Mr. Montague suggested three. Quite a spat sprang up, which was too rapid excited for the reporter's pen. A motion indefinitely postpone was offered
