VIRGINIA CONVENTION.
Sir. Lanib'a Speech on the Dlvlalou of
the State.
(Concluded from Yesterday.]
The report of the Chairman of the tna-i
joritv Committee proposes to extend the
boundaries* of the new State to Bull Run.
Will the chairman of that Committee un
dertake to explain to the inhabitants along
that Run this Constitution which he pro
poses to adopt for them?to discuss the
matter in public meetings there, and se
cure us a full and fair expression of the
people in the county of Fairfax?
Mr. West?I think it will be recollect
ed, sir, that there has already been a
vote taken upon the Constitution. I
proposed that Constitution myself, that we
might have some ground or place of be
ginning, and I propose that w? take a vote
upon the adoption of the old Constitution
And the Constitution us it now stunds,
with some slight amendments, will oe the
Constitution of the new State. As to the
other questions in relation to boundaries
&e., I will explain them perhaps at anoth
er time.
Mr. Lam it?When the gentleman propo
ses to make that explanation, he should
also explain another position of his open
ing argument, which struck mo an singu
larly inappropriate. lie slated in his
opening argument that they hail included
the county of Fairfax and the city of Alex
andria, within the limit* of the new State
which the majority of the Committee pro- ;
pose to form, with n view of thus furnish- j
ins protection to the capital of'the Union, j
agoiift the hosts that are now assembled
at Hull's l?un.
Mr. West?Does the gentleman ask uie j
tocxplain that now?
Mr. Laud?Mr. President, there has ?'
been a good deal of argument of this same
kind before this Convention. We have
been told?the argument, of course, has
has been inconsiderately urged?that this
thiiijr of establishing a new State was to :
be a perfect protection to us here against
the dangers that surround us. That it
would piotect us ng:tinst the arms of the
enemy?that it would be equal to an army
in the field. Anotl cr gentlemen who has
addressed the Convention would seem to
have considered the action of this Conven
tion if they passed his project to be equiv
alent to the glorious efforts of William Tell
for the defence of his country. Why. sir.
did William Tell defend Switzerland by
proclaiming that the boundary was here,
and giving notice to the Duke of Austria
that he must not go across those lines ??
No, sirl your lives and your propeuy are
not to be defended by measures of this
kind. Nothing but stout hearts and
strong arms will defend them. They ure
to be defended by the riileand the bayonet,
and the cannon. Your paper Constitution
and your paper Qtate wilt not be worlh a
single muaket iu defence.
| Mr. President, the new State ns proposed
in the substitute hist offered will have a
j population of less than 320.000. It will
have a revenue of about $550,000. This
will be the utmost extent for mane years
tc come, a much larger extent in fact than
| you will be able to extend your taxation
I lo. Yet the gentleman from Harrison, Mr.)
i Carlile) who addressed the Convention to
i day, told you, form your new .State and
you could at once get a loan $15,000,000
without any difficulty. Is.it possible that
i this Convention is to be amuaed-here with
j assertions of this kind. Why, sir. j'our
j whole revenue will hardly pay the interest
| on one half the amount. Deduct the ne
i cessary expense of your government, and
it would not pay the interest on one-fourth
j that amount. The whole revenne of your
new State will enable you to support in
field an army of about 7000 men?not a
soldier more for the, defense of so wide an
?xtended frontier as it will present. Yet
gentlemen this is the measure into which
re are to be precipitated and hurried on
without consideration. With the gentleman
from Mason, I must say, ''Reflect; reflect;"
before you plunge into such n system; re
; fleet before you abandon the lofty positiou
i which you now occupy, in pursuit of this
j ignxia fat u is of which so large promises
j have been made but of which so little is to
| be expected. Why gentlemen measure the
boundaries of your new State as laid down
in this .document You propose a frontier of
! over a thousand miles. Pennsylvania, with
j a population of 2,800.000, has a fron
tier of less than a thousand. Ohio
with a population of 2,300,000 has a pop
ulation of less than a thousand, yet with a
population ot nnder 320,000 and an ability
to support in the field an array of only 7000
inen, you have a frontier to defend of a
thousand miles. Fonr hundred miles of
that frontier borders upon secession Vir
|ginia. How will you defend it? If any
i defense should be necessary, if this Union
i is not to be restored, how will yon defend
| ? hut frontier? Why, gentlemen, nn army
i f 100,000 men and a revenne of eighty
millions will be required to defend the
frontier. And yet you abandon the passes
! of the mountains. You are not willing to
, wait until you can securc Pocohontas and
Greenbrier. You give up the main passes
of the Alleghanies, leaving yonr frontier,
according to the military expression, en
tirely in the air. If the arms of ?l*e United
States do not succeed in this contest, and
if the Confederate States.are able to main
tain themselves, you present to them a
frontier, unsupported by natural defences,
of four hundred miles. You will have a
State, if you accomplish yourohject, weak,
continually relying on its neighbors for
support, fur existence itself. You will have
a people who must always call upon their
ucighbors?heretofore nobly have they re
?pondcil jgjMfeft -for the defense <?f
Ii?rae3, and our property.
I wi^h to correct here a mistake into
which the gentleman from narrisou (Mr.
Lewis), who Addressed the Convention yes
terday, fell in regard to the chnrccter of
the government which has been instituted
here. lie called it a "provisional govern
ment," lieseemed to think it was to ex
pire, according to the system which we havo
adopted, within six months. This, Mr.
President, is not ths system which we have
adopted. It is true, sir, when this Con
vention met in June, it was impossible to
have throughout the countiesof Northwest
ern Virginia an election for Governor. The
Convention from the dictates nf an imper
ative necessity were obliged to assume the
responsibility of electing a Governor them
selves. That tar we interfered with the
rights of popular sovereignty, but we trust
ed to our constituents to excuse us for that
interference on account of the necessities,
the difficulties, the vast embarrassments,
with which \ve_. were surrouuded. They
unanimously "approved of our course.?
Throughout the whole length and breadth
of this land out action in Juue has been
approved of; approved of by the govern
ment of the United States; approved of
by the loyal men of the loyal States
everywhere. We were fully justified, there
fore, in doing it. But, sir, having elected
a Governor in this irregulur?and except so
far as it was justified by the circumstances
with which we are surrounded?unjusti
fiable mode, ire prescribed six months for
his term of office. Yet, sir, we went on
here to enact as follows: "The General
Assembly lot provide by law for the elec
tion of Governor and Lieutenant Governor
by the people,' as soon as in their judgment
such election can be properly held." The
office of Governor under the re-organized
government, is not to terminate at the
end of sixths,'at least according to the or
dinance for the reorganization of that gov
ernment. Xn express provision is made
for its continuance, and for its continuance
i in a regular manner, by election by the
people, whenever in the opinion of the
Legislature such convention can be proper
ly held, ^.nd I would ask attention for
one momont to the expression in this
clause. The Convention did not recom
mend this to the Legislature; they did not
request the Legislature to do it; but they
arc, in ?he-slanguage which is used here,
required to do it. Then, Mr. President,
look at the provision in regard to members
of the Legislature : "They shall hold their
offices from the passsge of this ordinance
until the end of the terras for which they
were respectively elected." The members
of the House,.ot' Delegates under this sys
tem. hold uBeir offices until 1863, and a
| portion of the'.Senatora until 18G5. When
the terms oHthose officers expire, if this
j system is io>Ke continued, their successors
[ will be electgtt in the regular wny. In no
; proper sense'ef the term, therefore, is this
merely a provisional government, for a
| provisional government. I take it is a gov
ernment which fixes in the very charter of
j its creation, a period beyond which it is
not to coulinue.
1 I would* wish, also, in connection with
' this same matter, to corre-t u singular
! mistake into wfiieh the other gentleman
from Harrison (Mr. Carlile) appeared to
have f-illen, in the argument which lie ad
dressed to the Convention to-day. He
seemed to think that there are members
here from a certain portion of the State
on their owu .motion?that they had come
hero independent of our invitation. He
seemed to tbiuk that the call for this Con
vention was addressed to Northwestern
Virginia exclusively. I notice these things
because it is'jieceasnry, it seems to me, in
order that the Convention may understand
the precise purpose and object of the move
ment we have instituted. This is all a
mistake. The cal! under which t is Con
vention watrelected, was addressed in the
folljwiug terms: "Resolved, That in the
event of the ordinance being ratified by ft
vote, on the 23d of this month. (May,) we
recommend; to the people of the counties
here represented, and all others disposed to
co-operate ioith us, to appoint on the fourth
day of June next, delegates to a general
con vent ioq.rto meet on the 11th of that
month. eHJ^'-^'fFhe call is addressed to all
the Union men or the State of Virginia,
lor that is the meaning, and the only
meaning, and that was intended to be the
meaning to ray certain knowledge by the
expression, '-all others who are disposed to
co-operate with us." The gentlemen who
have eorae here from Fairfax and Alexan
dria, have come here npon our call.
Mr. Carlile?I was speaking of the first
call. Xot the second.
Mr. Lamr?We have other evidence upon
this subject, which cvill show the intended
expression of the measures which we have
adopted. In this Convention on the 14th
of June, 1861, Mr. Hagans, of Preston,
oflVred the following: resolution, which
was unanimously adopted:
"That in consideration of the peculiar
circumstnuces that have surrounded our
loyal brethren of Loudon county, ns well
as their geographical position, this Con
vention now extend to them a cordial and
special invitation to accredit and send to
this Convcn?i$n,.?iieir regular number of
delegates as soon as may be."
At a former date of the Convention, I
find that "John S. Carlile, of IJairison,
submitted the following resolution, which
was adopt d:
"That the loyal people of the counties
of this Commonwealth that have not yet
appointed delegates to this Convention or
are not already represented here, be and
they are hereby cordially requested to ap
point such delegations without avoidable
delay."
Such then, gentlemen, was the system
which we had adopted. We adopted a
goverument here, not provisional; we ex
tended our invitation to all the counties of
the Commonwealth, to be represented in
this government. We did not intend the
movement as a movement of Northwestern
Virginia alone, but of all the State, ac
cording to the objects expressly set forth
in the call.
Mr. Carlile (interrupting)?I do not
desire to interrupt the gentleman, b *t I
alluded call emanating from the
county of^ftfAson.
Mr. LAM*??The gentleman will excuse
me. but I do not see bow that is possible.
Mr. CARtnfi$?It is possible in this way.
What I had said in reply to the gentleman
from Fair&'x&j^KHiiwxburs^) was bronght
to the nlteriu6a?6f the Convention by the
gentleman f^itfijMason (Mr. Polsley), and
in my replj^'aimded to the fact that I had
drawn up myself, referring, as I
had doneiixktprst instance, in reply to
the questirfi&f the gentleman from Fairfax
to the origxtn|Vt*U for the first Cou vention.
Then it waaf-thkt the gentleman himself
called my attention to the fact that this
