le to keep an eye upon the Catilines and C├Žsars, North and South. Alluding to the settlement of agitating questions in the past, he said that the men composing the former councils were made of very different stuff from men of these days. Point an empty gun at Secessionists now, they would dodge. They went down to Fortress Monroe, not to see if the guns were loaded, but to see if they were pointed towards the land. Passing rapidly along in his argument, Mr. Rives touched upon the tariff of 1828, and the nullification of South Carolina.--The Union men said then as they said now.--South Carolina, stand back; General Jackson, stand back! They thus acted as mediators, and saved the country. The point he made, as the reporter understood it, was that if wise counsels could prevail, a similar result would follow the present efforts. The argument that the best way to reconstruct the Union was for Virginia to go out of it, was answered by supposing the case of a little girl, five years ol

Virginia State Convention.thirty-eighth day. Friday, March 29, 1861. The Convention assembled at 10 o'clock.--Prayer by Rev.Thos. Binford, of the Baptist Church. Federal Relations. Mr. Speed, of Campbell, offered the following resolution, which was adopted: Received, That the Committee on Federal Relations be requested to report, as soon as practicable, upon the resolution submitted to them on the 20th inst., instructing an inquiry into the expediency of reporting to the Convention two Ordinance, &c. [The resolution alludes to submitting to the people the choice between an Ordinance of Secession and the proposed amendments to the Federal Constitution.] Voice of the people. Mr. Parks. of Grayson, presented a series of resolutions adopted by a meeting of citizens of that county, instructing him to vote for an Ordinance of Secession, and opposing a Border Conference; also, a petition signed by some 400 voters of the county of Grayson, praying for th

He then read from the Congressional reports of 1842, showing that a petition then came from Massachusetts, praying for separation. A resolution to censure Mr. Adams for offering the petition was introduced, and a lrginia, with this record before them, to follow such suggestions and advice now. He would take up the weapons with which the member from Accomac fought disunion in 1842, and fight it to the very death. He predicted that the ballot-box would send forth a sound that would strike unmitigated sorrow to the hearts of secessionists in f they wanted the icy arms of death to encircle the fair form of the Goddess of Liberty. He quoted a considerable portion of the speech of Mr. Wise in Congress in 1842, upon the anti-slavery petition, and used it after the manner of seizing an enemy's guns and turning them against himself. He then went on to speak of England's h

The father replies, "go away, child; break it all to pieces, and then bring it to me and I will mend it." [Laughter.] His (Mr. R's) idea was to mend the Union before any more of the limbs were broken off. The course of William L. Yancey was commented on by the speaker with considerable severity, and an extract from his Slaughter letter produced to show that in 1858 his purpose was to dissolve the Union; while Andrew Johnson, of Tennessee, was quite as unequivocally complimented. Caleb Cushing came in for a share of denunciation, Mr.Rives expressing a doubt whether he would have supported Douglas for the Presidency if he had been nominated by a Convention over which Cushing presided. He preserved the line of argument and illustration with which all are familiar who have listened to his campaign speeches. A reference, he said, had been made to his
