Non. A. R. Boteler.

The President submitted a letter from the Hon. A. R. Boteler, accepting his aapointment to a seat in the Provisional Congress, (to succeed Hon. James M. Mason,) and expressing thanks for the honor thus conferred. Ordered to be entered on the journal.

The extortioners.

Mr. Chambliss laid before the Convention a series of resolutions passed by a portion of the people of Sussex and Greensville counties on the 27th of November, denouncing the extortioners and monopolists in bitter terms. The resolutions were referred to the ‘"Committee on Salt."’

Secret session.

The Convention then went into secret session for the purpose of considering the ordinance to reorganize the militia.
