If the Union was to be dissevered, those who had broken the covenant should leave it — he would not; he would fight first. If we stay here, the question will be shall we submit to the oppressor with whom we are confederated now? He would say to those who would commit us to war social, war civil, and war servile, that they should not commit him without a fight. He implored Virginians not to wrangle among themselves. A submission to the oppressors would drive away many of our best citizens, and the result would be cheap lands and a new population. Mr.Wise went on to allude to the mineral treasures of Virginia, and asked if it was the policy to get rid of the negroes, and abolitionize the State, by introducing Northern operatives to develop the mines. He then expressed his belief, that one object of the party now concentrating armies to coerce us, was to confederate w

sponsibility of keeping the peace. Thus, he believed, could the Union be restored and preserved in its integrity. Mr. Moore wished to notice one or two points in the gentleman's remarks. He was not aware that he or the people of Virginia had any master but the God in Heaven. He meant to submit to neither the North nor the South, but was determined to maintain the rights of Virginia. As to where we should go, he meant to wait till he found out, whether it was before or after the fourth of March. Mr. Wise.--Too late. Mr. Moore did not mean to be hurried. The North may have the purse and the sword, but the purse has nothing in it. [Laughter.] He meant to wait and see what could be accomplished by the Peace Conference. He was opposed to running away at the bidding of the Yankee States, as well as to being dragged out by the Cotton States. The policy of re-opening the African slave trade, and of free trade and direct taxation, would be ruinous to Virginia. Gentlemen

Resolved, That the people of Virginia, in Convention assembled, do solemnly declare that she will not submit to the s members; but if the efforts now being made for that purpose prove unavailing, she will not hesitate to unite herself with her sister States of the South. Mr. Morton addressed the Convention on the subjects embraced in his resolutions. The course suggested was necessary to the safety and honor of Virginia. He expressed an motion of Mr. Johnson, of Richmond city, the Convention voted to employ an Assistant Doorkeeper, to be appointed by the President.
