Music in the Field. --The Bell and Everett men yesterday employed Smith's Band to play patriotic airs through the streets for the purpose of inspiring the voters. On the night previous the Breckinridge party had the same Band at their headquarters, and fine music was played at intervals, closing with the Star Spangled Banner.

The withdrawal of Southern Senators and Representatives from Congress was strongly condemned by Mr. Rives, as giving up a power which the South possessed for preventing any objectionable appointments, and restraining any act of Administration hostile to her interests ng for something else; and when the nurse took it to the looking-glass to exhibit to the child its own ugliness, it capped the climax by smashing the glass.

The Convention. A resolution was introduced yesterday by Mr. Conrad, of Frederick, for terminating debate in Committee of the Whole on Tuesday next; but an arrangement was made, as will be seen by reference to the report, by which the matter will probably be compromised this morning. In Committee of the Whole, Mr. Tim Rives occupied the entire day in a speech against secession. Mr. Wise offered a substitute for the report, which was referred at his request without reading, and ordered to be printed. Mr. Flournoy has the floor to-day.
