de a statement as an act of justice to the Superintendent of the Arsenal at Harper's Ferry, showing that it was under his advice that the communication relative to the proceedings at Harper's Ferry was made to the Executive at Washington. Mr. Tredway said that the resolution was not dictated by any want of confidence in the gentleman from Jefferson as Superintendent of the Arsenal at Harper's Ferry. He believed the result would place him in the position which he never doubted he occupied,h of November. He wanted to have the public mind quieted on the subject, and to allay an agitation that had been artificially created, by sensation dispatches, in the minds of the people of the Commonwealth. After some further remarks by Mr. Tredway, Mr. Carlile withdrew his motion, and said he would content himself with voting "no" on the resolution. The question was then taken, and the resolution passed. Mr. Fisher, of Northampton, offered the following: Resolved, That th

Occupying, as he did, the position of Superintendent of the Arsenal at Harper's Ferry, he was anxious that the people should have all the information it was possible to obtain, relative to movements at that place. He would inform them that every soldier and every piece of ammunition sent there was sent at his suggestion. An investigation of that matter would prove a subject of interest to the people of Virginia. Mr. Borst, of page, advocated the resolution. His people were opposed to coercion, and to the reinforcement and arming of the forts in order that, if Virginia should deem it right and proper to pass an ordinance of secession, the General Government would be in a position to coerce her. They were in favor of a Union that would secure the equality of all the States. Their voice would ever be heard to pray for Union, such as their fathers established, but they were opposed to a Union which did not fu

went on to show that the same state of things had existed there for years. In the progress of his remarks, he desired to do an act of justice to his old companions in arms, Capt. Dyer, the Command and of Artillery at Fortress Monroe, and to Maj. Anderson, the commander at Fort Sumter. The President thought the line of remark did not pertain to the subject under consideration. By general consent, Mr. Early was allowed to proceed. In Anderson's veins run the blood of the Marshalls, aAnderson's veins run the blood of the Marshalls, and both of the officers named were true and loyal sons of the South. If duty required them to point their guns at their own countrymen, every shot would wring their hearts; but they would do their duty to the last. Mr. Barbour of Culpeper, made a statement as an act of justice to the Superintendent of the Arsenal at Harper's Ferry, showing that it was under his advice that the communication relative to the proceedings at Harper's Ferry was made to the Executive at Washington.

Virginia State Convention.Ninth day. Saturday,Feb. 23, 1861. The Convention was called to order by the President, at 12 o'clock. Prayer by the Rev. Geo. W. Nolley of the M. E. Church. Personal explanation. Mr.Hall, of Wetzel, arose to make a personal explanation, in regard to his remarks on Thursday, which had been made the subject of newspaper criticism, as well as comment by gentlemen from the Northwest. He had been represented as saying that the whole Northwest was unsound; in other words, that they were not true representatives of Virginia sentiment, and not loyal to the Commonwealth. He did not intend to include, in the remarks he had made, the whole Northwest, or any considerable portion thereof.--He alluded to those two or three thousand Lincoln votes in that section, and to that portion of the people who sent members to this Convention elected upon a platform dictated by the Wheeling Intelligencer Lincoln's organ in the Northwest, which has a reporter
heard speak of the affair. C." Mr.Hall then read the letter from C. W. Russell, alluded to above, to show that it was not Able to the construction placed upon it. Transportation of Negroes. Mr. Montague offered the following, which was adopted: Resolved, That the several railroad companies in this State be requested to report to the Convention, as soon as practicable, the number of negroes carried over their roads, en route for any Southern States, within the years 1855 to 1861, inclusive. Another personal explanation. Mr. Clemens arose to a privileged question. Only one consideration prompted him to say a single word in reply to the gentleman from Wetzel. He was here as a representative of a portion of the people of the Commonwealth, and was not insensible of impressions that had been sought to be created against him, both in public and private. The effect of this was apparent in the faces and breasts of those around him, and in the sentiments of the s

ved that the gentleman from Jefferson had done anything improper, but because he wanted to know if the Federal Government had done anything intended to coerce Virginia into submission in the event that she should be compelled to go out of the Union. He wanted Virginia to be prepared to meet the issue. Mr.Wickham, of Henrico, opposed the indefinite postponement of the resolution. He had good reason to believe that there were fewer United States soldiers in Virginia now than on the 6th of November. He wanted to have the public mind quieted on the subject, and to allay an agitation that had been artificially created, by sensation dispatches, in the minds of the people of the Commonwealth. After some further remarks by Mr. Tredway, Mr. Carlile withdrew his motion, and said he would content himself with voting "no" on the resolution.

e went on to speak of the importance of unity among the people of Virginia on the great question now agitating the country. Mr. Carlile rose to a point of order. He was not aware that there was any question before the Convention. The President said the gentleman from Wetzel had arisen to make a personal explanation, but he thought he had exceeded his privilege. Mr. Hallthen produced the following special dispatch to the Wheeling Intelligencer, which was read: "RichmondFebruary 20th. "Great indignation prevails here among Northwestern members on account of the course pursued by Leonard S. Hall, delegate from Wetzel county. He openly denounced his colleague last night, in the parlor of the Spotswood House, as a submissionists, and read a letter from Mr. Charles W. Russell, of Wheeling, in support of his views. "The gallant old Gen. John Jackson, of Wood county, repudiated Hall and his letter before a large crowd, showing that Hall did not represent Wetzel
