simply to enforce the lawa-ria other words, oa.
eretaa and tear. ' : o ; - t .
Ia this ttate of facta our doty la to warn yon
that it is vain to hope for any measures of
conciliation or adjustment from Congress which
you eould accept. We are. alto nmfled that
tha republican party designs, by civil war alone,
to coerce tbe siuthera States, under toe pro
text of enforolog tbe' law, unlet it hall be
come speedily apparent that the seceding State
are to numerous, determined and united at to
make aoch an attempt hopel
r -We are confirmed in these conclusions by onr
general Intercourse here, oy the tpetsnet of the
republican leaders here and elsewhere, by the
recent refusals of the Legislatures of Vermont,
Ohio, and Pennsylvania to repeal tbelr oboox
lout pertoaal liberty laws, by the action of tha
Illinois Legislature on resolutions approving the
Crittenden propositions, and by tbe adoption of
resolutions in tbe New-York and Massachusetts
Leeitlatureo. (doubtless to b followed by
others,) offering men and money for tbe war of
coercion. .
u Wa have thus placed before you tha. faota
and conclusions which have, become manifest
tons from tbia post of observation where
you have placed us. There ia nothing to be
hoped Irom Congress; tbe remedy is with yon
alone, when you assemble In sovereign conven
tion. " "
W conclude by expressing our aolemn con
viction that prompt and decided action by the
people of Virginia, In convention, will afford tbe
surest meant, under tba provldenoe of God, of
averting an Impending elvil war, ead preserv
ing the nope of reconstructing $ Union already
dissolved. ..,- .'

the amenditory act of 1853. Referred to tbe
Judiciary committee. ,
Senate
HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES.
MONDAY, January 28, 1861.
AFTERNOON SESSION.
A call of the House wae bad, and 81 mem
bers answered to their nimr t. j
Mr. VINCENT presented tbe memorials of
Jonathan Myert ana 73 others, and of Alexan
der H. Reddington and 54 others of Lorain
county, againut cattle running at large. . -
Mr. ROBINSON from the Judiciary com
mittee, reported back H. B. 274 To secura to
religious and other societies the benefit of tbefr
records amended by tbe substitution of a new
bill, which amendment waa agreed to, when
tha bill was passed yeas 84, nays 2. , p
Mr. NIGH moved that tha resolution 'offered
by him on Saturday, for the appointment .of five
commissioners to meet in . Washington on tbe
4th of February, be taken from the table, oa
which the yeas and nayt were demanded, and
resulted yeas 46, nays 45, when
Mr. MUSSEN moved that tbe resolution be
referred to the Judiciary committee.
Mr. N IG H opposed the reference, because the
time waa short, aad such a relereoce would
cause delay. He said the only question was how
tha commission should be appointed. Tba Leg
islature had appelated Commiasioaer. He
tbonght If a reference was made, it ehould be
to tbe committee on Federal Relations; but ha
wat opposed to reference uow. It would cause
delay, and this motion waa to cause delay. . If
lime would permit, ne would prefer to submit
the question of electing this com mission, to tha
people. In presenting this resolution, he did
not expect to satisfy disunion men, ia ar sail of
toil House. It was for union men that be
proposed it. He appealed to the members of tbe
House to eonaider tbe condition of tb country,
and tea that delay doea not work ruin.
Mr. PARROT hoped the motion would not
prevail. The only object of the motion wat
delay; bnt the true reason for that delay It that
all the 8tate may be represented, whloh it not
practicable now. Tha day itself waa an Im
portant one, and the proper one for tha meetin g
of the proposed convention, when it would have
the beet poeeible effeot upon the two secession
conventions to meet on that day, in Nashville
and Montgomery. .... i
Mr. SCOTT, of Warren, defended tha ft.
erenoe aa proper aad right, at this time, whan it
waa of tbe moat importance that we act with
caution. Tbe charge that the motion wat for
delay waa unfair and not courteous . Ha waa
not oppo9ea io tne oommiseloa, whan properly
gotten np, and at a proper timet where all the
States can be represented. Ue gloried In the
Union; bnt ha did not measure bit fidelity to
. . f t ; L I . . ,
toe uoiou vj civm-pins; to uintrs power.- He
would thow bit fidelity by obedience to tha laws
and the constitution. He wanted a convention
of all tha States, if we have one. Virginia
bad laid down her basis of action. It Is propos
ed hereto meet Virginia on this basis. Like
the stork, he wat not ready to pnt hit head into
the wolFe mouth to have it doeed npoa him.
Virginia had called this convention and fixed her
own time. Wa bad noma aay In this matter,
and be wa for our having ourjeay. He thought
delav proper; and he thought the. Jiiriim.r.
committee the best one to consider tbe matter
Mr. CLAPP said there waa no haste about
this matter. There wa nothing to hurry the
matter. - Tha beet thing we could do was to let
the hot bead of tb south alone, and tha het
oold breath wa could blow upon their proceed
ings, waa to attend to onr own btrtineat, and let
them alona.
Mr. NIUU contended against tha motion to
refer, that this resolution ia not in conflict
with the constitution of tb State, and had suf
ficient precedent in the appointment ofthe cotm
mission to examine tne treasory; by tbe last
Legislature. .......
Mr. PLANTS moved that tha refenmnah.
accompanied by Instructions, which be would
Indicate. Ha aaid there are two other disunion
eonventlona to meet oa tha 4th of February.
. . L. . A 1 1 I .LI. .( ... '
Virginia nau wureuuua on tne same
day, not without concert nor withoota purpose.
He said tba basis proposed by Virginia was not
mere soggtation, but an ultimatum, and read
tha resolutions of tbe Virginia Legislature to
show that they were aa ultimatum. He taid he
waa a Union- man, but be waa for tha Union
with the Constitution. All who prorjote these
convention!, propose at the earn time a change
in tbe LOnaiiiuuiui. us auowea war, to onange
the Constitution, it would require tba concur
rence of all tbe free States. Surely, no man
out of a lunatic assylum could believe that tuoh
concurrence could be bad i ..
There waa an ulterior purpose behind this.
Tha border State did not expect it, and It waa
only a contrived pretext to excuse tbe accession
of all the slave States. , He aaid Democrat! In
Charleston, in April last, wonld not aoosde to
the demanda of tbe South. Are te to accede
to greater demands? The people of the free
States will not yield these points. Wonld the
South truat us If we yield tbem under these eir
cumslanoesT Men who would atrike down tha
present Constitution are not to be trusted. It
not a new constitution that we need. It is pa-
. . . A a. l . . a . .
trlotism to aianu oy toe ona wa nave, witb an
the blessings and glorious memories crowding
around It. ; He would not treat with traitor,
witb arms in tneir nanoa. cut u wey will lay
down " their arms, he would forgive and take
tbem back, but not till then. He believed the
greatest encouragement theee traitors have, la
tha eoovlotioa that they have abettors her
amoog nt. - . . ? :. : ?
Mr. ROBINSON would vote for a reference :
beeaese be desired sn amendment authorlxlna
the Governor to make tbe appointment of the
Commissiooere. nc would ultimately rote for
the appointment of Commissioners at a meant
coooillatlon, becanae many believe tome
good may come of such a conference. As for
himself he did no nope oi any gcoa retuit:
lib' Because the South will not agree to anv
change of theonatUutioa, which the north can
will aooept. i . ' "
2d. Becanae If tba north wonld accept the
Crittenden amendment, which Is a full surren
der bribe north, tbe gulf or eotton State wouldr
reject it- . I ney are oeternunea to eaiaousn a
southern confederacy, and have made tbe elec
tion of Mr. Lincoln , the iccasloa and not tba
cause of Beceeswn.. ... . - ,j '
31 A anrrender ol the majority to the mi
nority under tbe threat oi disunion, could not be
permanent, bnt must finally aggravate our diffl

In an earnest effort to adjust the present unhap

with pleasure any possible mode of adjusting the
existing difficulties, that will not compromise

Mr. S. said soft hearts bad been eulogised.
He had a soft heart, and it melted At the sight
of the slave driven across the land la caffiet,
and all tbe miseries attendant!' - Ha contended
that all we can do, la only to compromise away
manhood and the constitution. It baa been tbe
practice of the democracy to.talk about the laws,
and the constitution and tbe union.' That is
what wa are for now, and nothing more or lost.
He could tec eo hurry about this' matter: and
ha would therefore counsel deliberation and
time. Heated the democratic assertion that
tbia contest and thie fight I and must -be. be
tween the republican party and the south: If
then, tha fight ie between them; what business
haa any Democrat on tbia commission? Lot
tbe fight be batween the repobllcana and the

the republicans and the south. 'The democracy

position of the extreme antl slaverv wim of tbe
Republican ptrty. He spoke of the oocatltu-

tional question of the power of the Legislature
to appoint the commission, and held such ap
pointing to be perfectly proper and consistent
With tno constitution, lia opposed . xb appolut
meptby the Governor, becauae it would in hit .
hatdt f. tke a political bias, which he deprecate J,
holdibg that all parties ought to be roprtiented
In the commission. Ho quoted the Cincinnati
CffrmterTciol in support of his position. ' He bold- '-J
that tbe people sympathized with his poaltion; ' '
pie repudiated their action, the onsequoncos
must do upon tbem. . He said be was tno
faHbeBt. 'possible, from, sympathizing in any
manner with disunlonlste;.. but tho who op- i
posea mm conciliatory move, did lend aid and
oomfort to disoblonlsta.' He waa not particular '
aa to tha man named, He would vote for any '
man who was not a dlsonlonlst. - '
lu answer to Mr: Hills, at to what he held
to be a disunlonlet, be said a maq who was op
posed to all compromises.
Td MriTorls,, Mr. Nigh Answered that be " '
stood upori the Republican platform, holding ,
it to be conservative and providing support to. ' .
'the constitution and all tbe laws, not excepting .
the fugitive slave law. - , , -." "

Legislature. He knew at the same time that
many members, of this House supposed the
proposition of Virginia to be a trick or trap, ' '
and were opposed to any appointment of ;
Commissioner '' He could not eo regard it. . ,
He had confidence In that glorious "old State,
and )t was not right to act in this way towards
her till there was positive (evidence of eucb -
trick.' He wat la favor of appointing tbe com- .
mission ora; but ho was not in (favor of any -'
thing else Virginia proposed He did not ua- ;
demand the proposed basis at- any thing more .
than a proposition wlthour any idea of an ultl- '
ruatum. lie epoke of tbe question whother tbe .
Legislature had the power u&dor tha ccastitu- : . - -tion
to appoint tbe Commission; and taid he . '
preferred that method to appointment by the ...
UovernorJjftcau he was opposed - to one-man - -'
power thus exorcised, but a oareful Investiga
tion of this enbjcct, had satisfied him that tbe ' .
Legislature bad aot tbe power to make tbe sp. :
pointment, which position he supported with ' '
authorities and precedent', bearing- upon the
subjects, showing that the appointment of such . .
a commission is entirely oot of the power of .
tho General Assembly. Ue had been iujavcr
of the appointment by the Assembly, but with i
the plain provisions of the constitution staring ;
him ia tbe face, be would not think of it.- -
Mr. CALLINGS tbcught tbe question of '
slavery wat not pertinent to this suuject. He ,
did not think the Union wns to bo saved by
spread-eagle speeches. But the question wai
shall we accede to the proposition of Virginia, '
aud this Is tha whole question' . He had not
much faith in any of the Union saving movt-
Bents. Uut ho was in favor of thia commission '
as a moan that might lead to some settlement -, '
of etiatlng diflicalties. He was for the appoint- T
meat by the Legislature aa more directly rep
resenting the people, and expressing their wish
ea. He thought too, that the oommisslor. i.'r-vild
represent the two great parties of tbe State.
He thought the term office could not apply to'-, .
these commheloiiers, within the meaning of the .
ConttitutioD, tnd thorefore that It wat proper . i
that they should be appointed by the Assembly. - .
He was in favor or the appointment, and lu fa
vor of this appointment to ifod on. the 4th of
February. ' 1 " ' -
