The Convention. Mr. Stuart, of Doddridge, finished his speech in favor of an ad valorem tax upon negroes, yesterday morning, after which a motion to lay the subject on the table was decided in the negative. The Convention then went into Committee of the Whole, and the sixth resolution of the report on National matters was taken up and adopted, with some amendment. A portion of the seventh resolution was stricken out, and thus adopted. The eighth resolution was passed by with a view to amend the ninth; and the latter was considered, with various propositions for amendment, until the members became utterly fatigued, when the Committee rose and the Convention adjourned. All the amendments which were agreed to, as well as those rejected, will be found in the regular report.
