Under the more liberal system lately allowed by the
Emi>#ror of the Frtuch ia the Senate and the Legislative
Lodv ol the hu p re, the debated there have lately been
ut a moot sotniatod character. F.specially was this the
case with the debate on the Addreae to the Kmpcror,
which ran through sev.ral days in the Senate and was
rinally adopted without amendment and with scarcely
anv opposition. When the Address comes up in the
legislative Body, the debates will probably be still more
In tfc Senate, duri g this debate, the whole policy of
the Ktaperor towards Italy was discussed with great free
dom. The speech of Crinc* Napoleon, which took every
one by surprise for its boldness, opened the mouths of
I many other orators. Tbe Cardinals and Bishops that
h tvo seats in the Senate, and »1! the leading men ol the
\ I ; tramontane party, came vehemently to the rescue of
the Pope, and denounced the designs upon his tempore 1
| power in severe language, la the course ol the discus
| «ious th-' S- nate became greatly excited. Speeches were
. ipplsnss oc eike i lisapprobstioo. At
I times a dtxeu Senators would claim the lloor at once,
„ J i>. • disorder would be a^ great as it it* '!1 the Uouse

Trotlong, unaccustomed to such - genes, was at iiis wits

S ;cl. h the beginning of free ?p> ‘ ch iu 'he Legislature

Saturday, March 80th, 1861.
Th'j Convention assembled at 10 o’clock A. M.
Frayer by Rev. Dr. J ior of the Baptist Church.
Mr. CRITCHKK rose to a persoual explanation. He
sai 1 that he had beeu charged with withholding impor
tant political intelligence received by him front Mr. Wirt,
of Westmoreland. He said that, iu compliance with Mr.
Wirt’s request, he consulted with his friends in the Con
vention, and at their suggestion sent the letter to Mr.
Seward, “ with the distinct assurance on our part, that if
the police there indicated and’attributed to Mr. Chase
were adopted and carried into practice, that they and I
would sign an ordinance of secession within ten days af
ter that policy should be inaugurated.” This was the ex
tent of his correspondence with W. II. Seward. He
W0UJd disdain to notice the frivolous and malicious
charges that have been made against him, if the public
mind were more calm and serene.
Mr. MALLORY, of Brunswick, presented tbp proceed
ings of a meeting held at Lawrenceville, in said county, iu
favor of secession, which was referred to the Committee
on Federal Relations. Mr. M. said that ho would yield
obedience to the wishes of his constituents.
Fending the consideration of Mr. Conrad’s resolution
to terminate the debate in "Committee of the Wnolv, on
Thursday next, (the resolution having been so modified,)
The Convention, iu pursuance of the order of the day,
resolved itself into a Committee of the Whole, aud
Mr. FLOURNOY, being entitled tothelloor, presented
his views, lie urged the adoption of an ultimatum to
b-submitted to the Northern States—not by a Border
State Conference, to which he was opposed—but hr th s

resolution fixing the time ol adjournment and fixing an

Mr. ANDERSON advocated. Many blls of import

Mr. RAYMOND said numerous bills—the tax bill
wliich would increase the revenue at Imst $l00,U0t»—
wore not passed. He moved the indefinite postponement
of the subject.
Mr. BOREMAN objected to the resolution, and hoped
the day of adjournment fixed by the llovsc would be ad

Mr. BASKERVILLE approved the Sciate resolution,
and was for prolonging the session, on tic ground of the
unfinished business belore the Legislature.
Mr. SEDDON agreed with the propo-ition of the Sen
ate. He called the previous question, which being on
the indefinite postponement of the resolution, resulted
ayes U2, noes 63.
’ Mr. COLLIER offered to amend the first resolution by
inserting “in case of the actual attempt of the federal au
thorities to transport said guns over the soil of Virginia ”
Mr. COWAN said, just as he predicted the o'her day,
here was a proposition to buy these guns. He moved
! the indefinite postponement ot the resolutions aud amend
Mr. COLLIER hoped that it would not be the pleasure
of the House to indefinitely postpone, tint to pass these
rt solutions as a whole. As regards the proposition to pay
Mr. Archer for the arms, he would say it his atnrnd'netil
was adopted there would be noclaimou the part ol either
Mr. Archer or the Ktderal Government, unless the Gov
ernment was prepared to charge the statu* yuoas it now
stands, and degrade the soil ol Virginia by transporting
tin e guns upon our own soil to be used against us. Wc
wi to not in a state of war, but no man could tell bow
soon wc might to; and when the Slate was called on to
protect her eitixrns, the question of a few thousand, dol
lars would nor control him.
Mr. McKEN/.IK said if ho understood the resolutions
us they came from the Semite, the guns could not be
paid for bv the Stale until they were actually seized.
Mr. COLLIER said he was emleavoiingto pcifeet those
re notions. If gentlemen desired to make them accep
tr le to the House, they would vote to incor|>or.iU} bis
amendment on the resolutions. It was stated in the pre
amble that nootliertlian uti actual attempt to remove those
arms would cause them to lie si iztJ. The original com
part between Mr. Archer and the Government was that
they should be dcliv. red ut Richmond, and further, in a
em.v ration with Mr. Holt, late Secretary of War under
Mi Buchanan, Mr Archer » n told that in the present
excited condi ion of public alt'.iir* it was no time to move
them from oi.e plane to another on the soil ol a friendly
Su’e. But the scene had changed. A cowardly tyran
ny had coma into power, and undertaken to do that
wliich every true hearted Virginian would revolt at. It
to b rlooh to avail itself of munitions of war now in pos
se-’.sion of Virginia, to turn tin tn against her people; ami
they had not only done that but they had changed the
tot m-s of tho contract itself. They had undertaken to
cl unge the point ot delivery and cause the m to he deliv
ered and on ship board, in order that they might be
trail:pored to whatever joint of destination the Govern
ment may determine on. He had in his jc eket a written

Mr. BoREMAN .-aid, a rew -lay ago unotber sensation
was product d in this cuirinonity by a report that *oim
aims wrro to he carried from this place by the federal
government. 1 thougi.t the niembers of the Legi-litur*
lud titcome used to ttie-o-’ort ol seu.itions—tint' they
were not now to b ■ terror stricken by matter* of thi
,or ; that the ihv for sensation telegraphic dispatcher
had passed, ami that we wool 1 attend to our buaine
cdmly and like men. A resolution, however, war
introduced into the House, of a very mild char
a-ter, the preamble A which he did not agree with.—
The resolution it. It was ou. .if an objectionable rharac
I ter, yet I did not vote lor it, but it j...;-, d and went to
the Senate. Now, we have tfce stllis'itutc >A that Lodv
! before this House. The preamble seta forth facts (hit,
] so far a* m- information goes, are unwarranted. They
may be true, or they m.y not; hut. they are produciofj
great excitement iu the community, beucj tting nobody
iu or out of the Commonwealth, but are detrimental tc
the country. Ourselves we are injuring, and nobodv
else. Why then produce itieji) panics Irotn time to tint'!
Why not continue <|Uietlv about our busing-., and not
be thrown into convulsion* whenever Lincoln speaks s
word. Now, I understand, a few days ago, that whet:
it was ascertained bv the Government that the retnova
ol these arras, In fulfilment of the contract, was to ere
ate commotion, an order was issued from Wsshingiot
countermanding their removal. I think that the lettct
to that effect, from the Secretary of War, should rptiel
ail alarm on the subj cl, and that the l i;iii,!c to the
Senate resolution, doe* not set forth the .acts of th<
vise. But, I do not like the resolui!j>oi themselves 1
this Slate wants to buy arms, why not use the u.-u i! Ian
g jsge, that the Govtrnor be r»<| tired to purchase then.!
it there is no necessity for anything ot the sort, why set
forth the provision that the Governor shall be required
to use the torce of the Commonwealth in arresting
the transportation of those arms, particularly whci
the Federal Government has hundreds of gnus mon
than are necessary to defend her lorfs f The Ian
guage of these resolutions produces a panic to the detri
tnent of the people and the it jury of the community.~
If we wanted any resolution at all on the subject, the
one adopted, (My. Ronhutson's),was sufficient for all pur
poses concerning the matter. In my opiuiou we ough
to act calmly, and not with passion—not manifes‘. bj
our rcsoiuuons that we are excited or afraid ot this A 1
ministration. Virginia, when the tine comes, will bml
light. We will stand up like men, and not shoot papei
bads. If we are declaring war, let us coma out like uicu
If we want to buv these guns,buy them in the u-ual way
If the contract is forfeited by the Federal Government
then Mr. Archer is absolved from it on his part, and wi
can buv them.
Mr ROBERTSON’ made a long and forcible speech, it
which he said he d.d not think the Ilous' had the powe
to pass the Senate’s substitute for his resolution. Ho op
posed the motion to iudeliuitely postpone.
Mr. KEMPER thought this no time fur levity, a= soro.
of the memb rs seemed to consider it. He thought su
were upon the verge of revolution. The gentleman L on
Richmond (Mr. Roukutsok) had said we had no power ti
pass these resolutions from the Senate for the seizure o
these arms. By that declaration lie simply acknowledg
ed the futility and uselessness ol his own tesohnion. Tin
gentlemau seemed to have been tired with great indigna

of the Senate ievolutions. It we wanted peace, let u

He should not have been surpiisod « hen t o left tho Cap
its.-1 at two o’clock, to have seen boom-shells bursting
high in the air. When he went, however, down on
Franklin street, where a good deal of excitement had ex
ist- 1 heretofore, he found gentlemen peaceably and
quietly attending to their business, and nobody hurt;
-trill o i to Maiu sir ct, and the same quiet and order
w.u apparent. He thought, perhaps, there must be,
from the unusual excitement here, come difficulty down
on the I! -in, or at Rocketts, hut there, too, every tiling
qui-t, and peace and order rained, lie enquired to
kno* i: there were any United .Suits troops here; lie
had not hi a able to learn that there was any. He di -
drtd to kr.ow whether there was any organization here

The CHAIR ruled that the gentleman was taking too

he was glad to hear it, a;ni with that ^pderstanaiog in
had nothing more to say upon that point. He had this

go forth to the people thp hour and the time, the confi
sjon aud disorder that prevailed wlieu these resolution
were adopted. But the stout hearts and s'rong arms o
all her people would rally as otic man to defem
the honor ot Virginia—he did believe though that ther
was now no necessity for thiz gptign, it was all huinbu
aud gammon.
Here various gentlemen rose again to questions of oi
der amid 'he wildcat acmes of confusiou. The Smiu
overruled the points of order.
Mr. KEEN proceeded to occupy the (1 mr, amidst va
rious interruptions and motions for adjournment, fu
about four hours.
Pending this excitement tho member from Morgi
mide some motion, the purport of which was to expree
his disapprobation of the cou-«e now being pursued b
the gentleman from Pittsylvania.
Mr. KEEN replied that it was a matter of perfect it
difference with him whether the gentleman from Morga
approved or disapproved of his course.
Mr. 8EDDON rose to a personal explanation, and sai
that he had forborne as long as he could, and if gentli
men per.-isted ill trying to throw oil’ the vote he ahoul
regard them as his personal enemies
[Various gentlemen springing to their feet at thesaru
time |
Mr. KEEN sal'] Jie supposed the gentleman alluded t
him Inasmuch as the gentleman 1, id raided the point t
order that he was attempting to defeat the vote.
Mr. SKDDON replied that he intended his remarks a
much for him as any one else, but not more than otlit
members on the 11 ior.
Mr. KKrN said he should be sorry to lose the frieni
ship ol the geiitlt man from Stafford. He was here ac
ii g in discharge of a representative capacity, and prepai
ed to discharge any responsibility that might attach to i
Mr SMITH, of Kai uwha, rose to a personal explain
i lion. He bad been in the House during the whole evi
i ning’a session without participating iu its disorder, c
in the debate, it was now twelve o'clock and as he wa
i unwilling to intrench upon the Sabbath be felt it hie du
i tjr to withdraw.
1 Mr, HALL, of Loudoun, rose, with hi* watch in hi
hand, and ateUd that htull o’clock, and hqotrcd of
the Speaker, if it wrap uoirpeteot for the House to sit and
transact buainerson 8undar.
The SPEAKER rcpKd tha'. It w»«.
Then upon, Mr. BALL anoounced that he would with
draw from the hall.
Mr. 8RDDON **id that the gentleman from Loudouu
had conlr hated to the obstruction of the buaineM and
thus protracted the session.
Mr. BALL Mid the gentleman was mistaken, he had
bc-'n in the house during the whole of the night’s ses
sion, aud had not occupied one morntnt of it* time ex
cept to respond to his t.ame when called.
Mr. COLLIRR said that the Hou.*e could and would
compel the attendance of its members.
Mr. BALL replied that the House bad cot the power
to compel hint to violate the Sabbath, aud could not do
it, and thereupon he lelt the hall.
At -1 o’clock, Mr. CHRISTIAN said the House could
tea ilv that he had not engaged in any factious course to*
night, and was unconscious of intending to do so; and
h» now, iu good faith, submitted to the goo I sense of
member* present, whether they had not done everything
their duty demands in the premises, and now that in
ward for the constituents they represent, as w. II as n *
sped for the tiWtof Uod and public d< cency, require
further proceedings he dispensed with until Monday;
he therefore moved an adjournment. Why should mem
beis he compelled to n main here agotu-t their cot. -
sciences when no real good could be accomplished.
Mr. COLLIER demanded a call of the House. He
wanted everv nu mber of that body in the city not now
present, to be brought before the bar of the House by
the Sergeant at Arms.
The demand was sustained, and the roll being again
celled, less than a quorum was found prescut.
| At this stage of proc- edirgs, the scene was truly inte
re* leg. Many nt* mbers were asleep. Others were ga
thered in groups, in earnest conversation, all seeming to
talk at once, and gesticulating furiously. The galleries
were full of spectators, and several members were ap
pealing to the crowd for tobacco, cigars, etc. There
se med to be somo tort of a Ivy passing amongst the
members, to looseti I hi ir tongue-; and some malicious
individuals, evidently no n-rpeclers of the Uou-o, sug
gested that was w/rii-key, aud none too good At that.
tt'r are silent. ]
At the third call of the roll, on the demand of a call
of the House, the berg- aut-at-Arma was ordered to clo e
t'y doors to prevent the iugress or egress of the mem
bers, and then those present proceeded, according to
form, to give excuses for absentees. Some of these ex
cuses were rather singular. Iii one case the absentee
was affected with an extraordinary disposition to sleep—
so much so that he could not keep his eyes open in the
dav lime, much less at night. Thin member was not ex
cused. Some had gone home—too Ur to be sent far.
O.hers had conscientious scruples about working on the
Sabbath day; they were pious men. Some doubting in
divi lu tl, however, here slat- d that one of thrse pious
members had, within his hearing, declared that before I e
would violate the Sabbath he would seethe House d—J.
One mcuili r had gone home on account of tr/ireted
illness iu hip family. Some of these excuses were re
ceived. Others were indignantly protested against.—
One member, when the excuse of indisposition was urged
for ati absentee, said i; was all fudge ; he had seen the
member in the House that night, in the liveliest of hu
mors. As for him, he was really uuwell, and ought to
bo iu his bed. Ho Imd thrown up his dinner and supper,
and .at tha' moment had a dozen compound cathartic
pills rolling round his system,
Tito i oil was again called, and a quorum found to be
Mr. PHELPS moved the galleries be cleared. The con
fusion was so great members could not hear what was
going oti. | l ids was done in irony, as the gallcties,
though crowded as they were all night, were perfectly
quiet, while confusion worse confounded prevailed be

Mr. COWAN rose for information. He wanted to
know if the Ilnnsr- coi hi afford entertainment to the pub
lie without a license f [Laughter.]
Mr. WILSON moved that the Sergcantat-Arms he sent
to bring tl o absentees. It was so ordered.
Mr. COWAN said bo was not to be intimidated by any
such threat.
Mr. PEPDON disclaimed threatening any member.—
lie only meant to indicate that be would use ail parlia
mentary means to preveut the prolonging this state of
things. He did not mean to otf.rid any member, and if
bis remark did so, he withdrew it and begged pardon.
Mr. KEMPER proposed, with the unanimous consent
ol the House, that a vote should now be taken on the re
solutions, pledging himself to the opposing party that
he would, on Monday, move a reconsideration of the
vote so as to allow members to vote who wished to do
Here great confusion prevailed, many of the majority
Opposing the proposition. It was withdrawn.
Mr t OWAN said lie hoped the proposition would be
acceded to. He and those who agreed with Inm had
struggled in vain, and bad fully discharged their
duty. It was evident that the insjoaity intended to have
a vote to-night, and he for oue was willing it should be
taken now.
Mr BOREMAN slid he wished it understood that the
projiOM'ion did not nifet with his sanction.
Messrs. ALPERSON and RIVESdeclared that nobody
should speak tor them. They indicated their own senti
ments when it suited them.
