hen a Government was abolitionized, the doom of slavery was sealed. The conversion of the iron-bound fanaticism of the North was the most absurd of all absurdities., Virginia ought to take a stand now — at once and forever. The time had come when we were two sections, divided in everything, with no hope of reconciliation. -- He believed that conjunction with the South was a peace measure; that if Virginia would secede, all threats of war by the North would be abandoned. With regard to North Carolina, and the border States, he would regret it if they refused to join us; but he believed such would not be the result. Whether they joined us or not, Virginia would be much better situated with the South than with the North. Virginia's position would be supreme in a commercial point of view, and the union would be mutually beneficial. He repudiated entirely the idea of a Border State Confederacy. There were no commercial advantages to be obtained, and he could see no reason for such a

om the four great divisions of the State, be appointed to apportion representation in the Senate according to the number of the qualified voters in the Commonwealth, and that they report amendments of the 4th Article of the Constitution accordingly. Mr. Woods, of Barbour, being entitled to the floor, proceeded to advocate the resolutions. In the course of his remarks he dilated with force upon the extravagance of State legislation. He believed that unless it were curtailed, the State of Virginia, whatever might be her action in other respects, was marching onward to ultimate repudiation.--He appealed to the magnanimity of Eastern gentlemen to do justice to the West. It was important at this crisis that the people of the different sections should be united.--He would not admit the possibility of separation, but the best way to attach the people to each other was to do justice to every section. He read from the financial reports of the State to show the rapid increase of the p

hould meet nothing but ruinous competition, while in the other direction a broad field was open for commercial and agricultural operations. If another effort were to be made to adjust the difficulty with the North, he thought a demand should be made such as the South could subscribe to, and fix a time for the limitation of negotiations; not keep the people in this present ruinous state of uncertainty. The best plan, he conceived, would be to adopt the report submitted by the gentleman from Amelia, (Mr. Harvie,) and take the State out of the Union at once. -- With regard to the causes which ought to induce such a step, he went on to show that the prime object of the Republican party was to abolitionize the country, and read from one of Lincoln's speeches, wherein he said that any man who held a slave ought to be himself a slave, and by the help of God such a result would be attained. Though the Inaugural had said that he did not mean to interfere with slavery where it exists, the ten

an from Albemarle; but time was valuable, and if every gentleman occupied three days in the exposition of his views, he could not see when the Convention would be ready to adjourn. Mr. Staples, of Patrick, hoped the committee would rise. The Convention could resume the consideration of the resolutions of the gentleman from Monongahela, and thus no time would be lost. On this ground, Mr. Hall withdrew his objection to the motion. After some further remarks by Messrs. Scott of Fauquier, Early and Branch, the question was taken on Mr. Holcombe's motion, and decided in the affirmative. The Committee then rose, and the Chairman reported progress. Taxation, &c. The President stated the pending question to be on the resolutions of the gentleman from Monongahela, (Mr. Willey,) and that the gentleman from Marion was entitled to the floor.

M. Committee of the Whole. The hour of half-past 12 having arrived, the Convention resolved itself into Committee of the Whole, (Mr. Southall, of Albemarle, in the Chair,) and proceeded to consider the various reports from the Committee on Federal Relations. Mr. Randolph, of Richmond city, being entitled to the floor, proceeded to re-state a portion of his argument or yesterday, upon the subject of protection, having been requested to do so. He read statistics of the trade of Richmond in the articles of clothing, shoes, hats, &c., showing that a large proportion thereof, formerly manufactured here, was now manufactured at the North. Under the revenue system of the Confederate States, we would receive protection for our own manufactures, while the more costly fabrics woul
