Wednesday, March 13, 1861. The Convention was called to order by the President at the usual hour. Prayer by the Rev. Mr. Baker. of Grace Church, (Episcopal.) Hour of meeting. Mr. Hull, of Highland, offered a resolution, as follows: Resolved, That, until further ordered, the Convention will meet at 11 o'clock, instead of 12. The resolution was ruled out of order, one of similar import having been laid upon the table a few days ago. Voice of the people. Mr. Woods. of Barbur, presented the proceedings of a meeting of citizens of that county, declaring for the doctrine of State-Rights, opposing coercion, advocating the withdrawal of Virginia from the Union, &c. Mr. Woods endorsed the high character of the citizens who participated in the meeting. The resolutions were referred to the Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Morris, of Caroline, presented resolutions of a similar character from his county, which were likewise referred. the Peace C

In regard to the preservation of the status in the Territory of New Mexico, he alluded to the remarks of a distinguished Northern member of the Conference, in connection therewith, and the interpretation of the term which he gave. Mr. Wise asked if that member was or was not a member from Ohio — a member of the present Cabinet — by the name of Chase ? Mr. Tyler replied that that was a disclosure. He declined a direct answer to the question. The law of Mexico had emancipated slavery and substituted peonage; and an emigrant to the territory ceded to the United States now goes there surrounded with all the panoply of liberty. The gentleman from Kanawha had spoken of the protection of the common law. What protection could the common law give you on that soil, where the bondman has been emancipated ?

The President announced the pending question to be on the motion to refer the Peace Conference propositions to the Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Tyler, of Charles City, being entitled to the floor, proceeded to address the Convention.He said he was about to make a very bold and very daring adventure, the state of his health being unequal to the task of discussing the interesting subject under consideration, but he would attempt it under an impulse of duty. Called from the quiet and comfort of his home, to meet the fearful crisis impending over the country, he would not now shrink from the labor imposed upon him. After a brief allusion to the part he ha

He alluded in glowing terms to Henry Clay, whom he delighted to honor, and though there was a difference between them, during Clay's life, it was his loss, for he refused the hand that would have supported him. The gentleman from Richmond (Mr. Macfarland) would remember that he had said in his presence that Henry Clay should have a monument as lofty as the mountains and as enduring as the skies. He professed to be somewhat a disciple of Clay's upon the matter of settling the Territorial question. Mr. Tyler proceeded to argue this branch of his subject, but having announced that he was much exhausted, an adjournment was suggested, in order to give him an opportunity of closing to-morrow. Mr. Tyler therefore yielded the floor, and On motion of Mr. Sheffey, the Convention adjourned.

Mr. Summers said he had argued that, taken as a whole, they were an equivalent to, and in some respects better, than the Crittenden propositions. The corresponding sections of the two propositions, touching the Territorial question, were then read, and Mr.Tyler proceeded to draw a comparison between them. The measure suggested by Mr. Crittenden was like the man himself, whom he respected and honored. No concealment by phrases, but open and manly.
