WEDMKSDAV, Feb'y 11,* The members of:,
the Mili ury Convention, in accordance with a; ,
call from their President, met on Wednesday | (
eveninjr in the Chamber of the First Branch of ,
the City Council, in the City Hall. Gen. J. j ,
Spear Smith having taken the chair, the Con-' ,
Iveittion was called to order. The President! (
Ihriefly recapitulated the circumstances which ,
tad induced him to call a meeting of this Con-1 :
vVjntion again. The following 'were his re- ,
marks: Gentlemen, —A formal request has!,
f.tcen made to me, as chairman of the Military I ,
| Convention, to re-assemble you, to again take ,
into consideration the condition of the Voliin 1 ,
teers and Militia of our city. It is known to ,
you that the bill, amendatory to tlief Militia (
laws, which was formed with so much care by ,
this Convention, was sent to the General As- |
sembly. In the House of Delegates it was re- |
terrcd to the Militia Committee, and after a ,
time, reported to the House. A motion to
print it| was rejected, and it was referred to a
select committee, composed exclusively of the (
delegates front this city. They reported tint ,
it ought not to pars, but I beliove that no ! (
filial vote of the House has been taken. It is
then in the condili m of heing repotted against
by our own immediate representatives, and not
likely now to h 'entertained with favor. Al->
low me to add that the bill in question is, in my
opinion, well adapted to every purpose of an
efficient organization of tho Militia service—
that it is the least oppressive of any law of the
kind ever enacted, as instead of four annual pa-
I rades, with arms, there will ho but two, with
out arms, and merely for roll-call, that our
strength may he known, and tire citizen rocog- !
niso his military obligation, know his officers, j
places ol rendezvous, and the company and re
giment to which lie is attached; thus enabling
| him on any emergency, to give his aid in de
fence of Ins country, or its laws. Whilst tins
light, duly is imposed on the private, the offi
oers, under your bill, have to undergo a severe
I coarse of training, under heavy penalties for
Lriegligence. This is to qualify tliem for cotn
rtn.utd. They are also to be selected for their!
merit, and not to be promoted as formerly, by j
mere seniority. Thus the severe duties fall in
fine of peace on the officers, leaving the pri
vates free from every embarrassment, except
that of his mere personal appearance twice in
the year. I will irot go into further details, as
the whole subject is so familiar to you. Hav
ing thus alluded to the two prominent features
or.be bill, I will leave tho subject now for your
deliberation, with the single remark, that our
delegates should manifest suelr strong distaste
to a measure, calculated to bear so iightly on
[ their constituents, as compared with the exist- 1
ing Militia systi m.
Captain Ihckell, of the National BIURS, arose
j and addressed tho Convention, in reference to
tho manner in which tho hill had been disposed
of by the delegates from this city, lie said
that the labors of the committee who drafted
that bill, were deserving of nioro respect and
consideration, than was given by tho delegates
to whom it was referred, lie read the adverse
report of the delegates from Baltimore, and
Commented in strong language upon it, they
having taken upon themselves to act in tho
matter without consulting any portion ol their
immediate eons itucnts.
He also contended that tho proposed bill was
less objectionable than the old Militia system. :
lie concluded by offering the following resolu
Resolved, That the leeenl unfavorable action
I 'of the Delegates from the city of Baltimore, on
ka bill for the re-organizing of the Militia of the
N District, meels with our decided disapprobation.
Res Ived, That wo sincerely bolieve, if the j
details of said bill had been submitted to the
consideration of the people of the city of Bal
timore, that it would have been sustained and
approved of by tliem.
I Resolved, That we also believe, that if the j
said bill had been printed lor the information ot
the Legislature, and its importance to our citi
zens fully explained, that it would have passed
that honorable body by a large majority.
The resolutions wero read and unanimously !
adopted. Gon. Steuart and Cupt. Kane ad-!
dressed the Convention at some length, recapi
tulating the circumstances and facts connected
with tho summary rejection of the proposed
bill, which had come to their personal know
ledge. Major Law and Capt. Pickell made a
few remarks in reference to tho conduct ol the
Baltimore Delegation, when Capt. Kane arose
and offered a long manifesto, intended as an
txpose of tho wholo matter. The paper con
cluded by requiring all officers, who should
sign it, to resign their commissions. Col. Da
vies, Col. Hickman, Capt. Kane, Capt. VVat
| ftirut and Capt. I'ickcll, discussed the contents
of lite manifesto at some length, when by re
quest, Capl. Kane withdrew it, to permitCapt.
Watkins to offer tho following resolutions:
Resolved, That the foregoing resolutions,
(Capt. Pickell's,) and the entire proceedings of
this meeting, bo signed by the President and
Secretary, and lie published, ani a copy fur
nished to each member oi tho Legislature.
• Resolved, Tiiat the committee heretofore
charged with the presentation of the Militia
hill to the Legislature, he and they are hereby
instructed to present to the General Assembly,
a memorial sotting fortli the disastrous effects
ola refusal or neglect on the part of that body
to pass the bill that lias been offered to their
consideration, or some bill containing adequate
provisions for the organization and support of
the Militia and Volunteers at tho present crisis.
'I lie resolutions were adopted by a majority
of one. Capt. Kane's manifesto was then read
again, and after considerable discussion, on mo
tion of Capt. Watkins it was laid oil tho table.
The Convention then adjourned until Wed
nesday evening next, at the same time and
I From ihs Pittsburg Chronicle-]
This anniversary of Cupid is near at hand. •
The FOURTEENTH oTthis month is ttie day up- j
on which of right Cupid ascends tho throne of j
Jupiter and ruigus supreme over all animated
Tho origin of this anniversary, arid of the I
peculiar customs which constitute its obsor- I'
vunco, are wrapt in considerable mystery by 1
the clouds which rest upon the past. St. Vul- 1
cntino, whose name is given to the day, accord- \
ing to some writers was a bishop, according to j
others was only a presbyter. lie suffered
martyrdom in tho reign of Ivnperor Claudius |
11. Laving been beheaded at Rome, and was
canonized at an early period by tho Catholic !
Church. Ho was very much distingushed tor
his love and charity, and from these ehnraeter
istics of the worthy Saint it is supposed by
some writers that the custom of choosing Val
entines, or special loving friends, on Ins day |
(Feb. 14th) originated. Others, however, at-j
tribute this custom to the fact, that, in the |
countries whence it has been derived, the birds ,
choose their mates upon this day, St. Valen-,
tine's,from the coincidence having the honor of j
giving name to the day and the partner chosen, j
There is, however, still another view of the
matter. Other writers deduce this custom from
a practice which prevailed among the old Ro- :
mans during their Lupercalia. In accordance !
with this practice, tho Roman boys and girls, j
upon the 14th of February, wrote their names
upon small slips of parchment, or other substun- !
ces, and cast iliem into two urns, the names of |
tho hoys being placed in one urn and those of
tho girls into tire other. The young people
then, each in turn, choose out of one of the !
urns their partners for the festivities.
"When Doctors disagree who shall decide?"
Among these different opinions in regard to ' t
the origin of this day and of the manner ot its
observance it is difficult to determine the true
one. This, however, is of no importance. We.
have the day with its love-making, fun-ereat- !
ing customs, not "more Inllowed in the breach
than in the observance."
Tho custom of observing this day in the po
pular manner is a very ancient one, and bus j
prevailed very generally in England, time out I
of mind, much to the increased" tho revenue ol
tho Dost Office Department Of late years the ,
FOURTEENTH of February lias come to ho a
day to ho remembered in our own country. Iri ,
most of the Eastern cities, and paiticularly in
New York, the number ofCupid's messengers,
which have bv means of the Denny Dost, pass
ed hulwe.cn "all true lovers," is very large ;
Twenty-seven thousand lender epistles from
"sighing swaiiis"aiul "languishing mistresses,"
were delivered by the New York City Post ol
lico on last St. Valentine's Day.
The peculiar form and style of these mis
sives is, of course, a matter ot taste with the
writers. Love, however, should bo tho theme,
and warm and tender passion should breathe in
every line. In the mode ol expression, the fi
gures and similes with which these billets-doux
every one must suit hiuiscl! or hcrsell— cliacwi
a sort goaf. The custom of the day gives every
body the privilege of writing to every other bo
dy, but nobody—to prevent actions for broach
of promise wo suppose—signs his or her own |
name to the epistle sent. This greatly increa
ses the mystery and mirth of this pastime.
Wo like these okl customs, when observed
iin a suitable spirit. I hey serve to prolong the i
j feelings of youth, which too soon give place to i
the cares and sorrows of real life. We grcjw |
1 old too fast, and need to cheat Old i into out
of as many sands as we can. Our bodies we
cannot withhold from ids grasp, hut our minds j
and feelings are witlirii our own power and
should be made to linger with Youth while the
former are hurried on to their filial resting
tucky legislature is about to give a quietus to
abolition excitement in that State, or rather to ,
administer severe punishment to those who
may venture on her soil to promulgate their
fanatical doctrines. Tho following law lias
I passed the Seriate:
The first section makes an attempt to per
suade any slave Drum his owner punishable by
confinement in the penitentiary from one to
fivey-:urs. The second section provides that
if any person shall excite slaves to insurrec
tion or rebellion, he shall lie punishable by fin- |
prisonincnt in the penitentiary not less than
five nor more than twenty years. The third
section makes an attempt to excite insurrec
tion by oral discourse, or by disseminating
: printed or written documents amongst the j
• slaves, punishable by a fine of from SSOO to
I SIOOO, and confinement in jail until line and
costs are paid. The fourth section makes aid- j
ling, harboting, concealing, or assisting any
I slave to escape punishable by imprisonment in I
j tho penitentiary from one to five years. The
I fifth section subjects a free negro or mulatto, j
| guilty of any of llie above-mentioned offences, ]
! to confinement in the penitentiary of from five
|to twenty years. The sixth section makes it
the duty of the circuit judges to see the law
i fully executed.
THE LAST NOVELTY. The Germans are fa
. mous for novelties: tho last one is a musical
I bed, which receives the weary body and inimc
• diately "laps it in Elysium" to a soft and gentle
air of Aubor, played long enough to lull the
\ most wakeful to sleep. When he wishes to
. rise, the bed plays a march of Spontom, with
drums and cymbals, and, in short with noise
j- enough to rouse the seven sleepers.
• LOOKING FOR WAR. The citizens of Brook
lyn are bestirring themselves to prepare forde
-3 fences of their city. They will orect suitable
t defences forthwith.
