ordered to be printed. Mr. Holcombe, of Albemarle, desired to make a statement as an act of justice to his colleague, Mr. Southall. He understood that gentleman's position during the canvass to be precisely the same as that stated by him this morning. He did not hear his speech at Scottsville, but was satisfied, from the written as well as oral addresses of Mr. Southall, that the highly respectable gentlemen who composed that meeting were under a misapprehension. Mr. Blakey, of Madison, presented a series of resolutions adopted by one of the largest meetings ever held in that county. He said the gentlemen who participated were of the highest respectability. They loved the Union, and would still adhere to it if it was to be administered in the spirit of the fathers; but they would never submit to Black Republican rule. The resolutions go for immediate secession, and oppose the sending of a representative to the next Congress, &c. Mr. Blakey moved that they be referred t
ainst any change in the system of taxation at this time, &c.) were, at the request of Mr. Goode, laid on the table. Mr. Harvie, of Amelia, presented a series of resolutions adopted by a large meeting of the citizens of that county — the largest he ever saw there; which resolutions, favoring immediate secession, and opposing any adjournment to a future day without settling this matter, were, he said, adopted with entire unanimity.

Mr. Blakey, of Madison, presented a series of resoluti
e Union, and a settlement of differences, he would willingly accept it. Mr. Montague, of Middlesex, took the floor, and said he had some views to offer, but it w commence his remarks, and conclude to-morrow. No objection being made, Mr. Montague went on to congratulate the gentleman who had last spoken, for he believed h safe under the Constitution, with that Constitution under her control. Mr. Montague said that there was then a difference of opinion upon that side. All the otat the alien and sedition law had anything to do with that institution. Mr. Montague contended that he assumed a more general view, because he wrote the remark dth to the country as an answer to the arguments he had advanced previously. Mr. Montague then rapidly glanced at various acts of the Federal Government, which Virginit related to the ladies, he hoped the bus would be added. [Laughter.] Mr. Montague, on behalf of the reporters, desired to say that the gentleman's speech was
of resolutions offered by the member from Marshall, (Mr. Burley). Mr. Dorman, of Rockbridge, said that as the member from Madison had incorporated the resolutions in his remarks, they would have been printed without a motion. Mr. Borst, of Page, advocated the motion. A series of resolutions adopted in the city of Petersburg were ordered to be printed, and yet they contained no word of instructions. The question was them put, and carried in the affirmative. Mr. Nelson, of Clark, desired to correct some errors in the report of his speech in the Richmond Enquirer. He pointed out three or four; one of which was the name of a character of Scott's, Triptolemus Yellowley, which was printed Triptolemus Yellowleg.--Another, still more provoking, (for he had some regard for his position as a scholar,) was a quotation from Virgil, "Tantae, ne irae celestibus, " the concluding word of which was printed celestip. As it related to the ladies, he hoped the bus would be added.

[Great laughter.] Mr. Nelson acknowledged the fact, and admitted that his chirography was hard to decipher. These important matters having been disposed of-- On motion of Mr. Dorman, the Convention adjourned.
