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.

Heroic action. --Acts of heroism, such as would do honor to any age or nation, are beginning to manifest themselves in connection with the present war. Our readers are familiar with the narrative of the martyrdom of the noble Jackson, and the fall of the gallant Marr, ere he was enabled to strike a blow at the infamous invader. We have been informed that one of our townsmen, Capt. O. Jennings Wise, of the Blues, performed an act of daring gallantry at the recent fight at Aquia Creek, which deserves to be immortalized in history. Whilst the cannonading between the shore battery and the ships was at its height, this fearless young commander stood outside of the parapet, where the balls were raining hottest, exposing his own person to their deadly effects, and watching continually for their approach, in order that he might give timely warning to his men to avoid the danger. How does every pulse thrill, and the heart swell with grateful emotions as we contemplate such scenes,
Wise Brigade. --We judge from the rendering of recent notices respecting the Partizan Legion, that Ex-Gov. Wise will command in person when it is formed, which, from present appearances, can be at no distant day. If so, the Brigade can have no more capable or able leader, and all the men of which it is composed, may congratulate themselves on one thing, they will be commanded by one who will lead the van and be foremost in the fray. In this connection, we call attention to the notice of Capt. Thos. T. Cropper. It is an impassioned, earnest and truthful appeal, which must be appreciated by every man who loves Virginia and hates her oppressors — those noxious and disgusting fungi — which we trust that our brave soldiers, the Wise Brigade among the rest, will be enabled utterly to destro
