Tribune says: A conversation, which I could not help hearing, at the Charleston Hotel last night, conviuces me that the disaffection among the slaves is more general even than I had imagined. A member of the Convention, who comes from the District of Prince George, was relating to a friend circumstan ces of a plot which he had discovered, the ramifications of which extended for miles around, and in which the servants of some score of planters were concerned. Tho idea which possessed the slaves seems to have fired in Charleston Harbor, they should make a stampede, taking with them all tho property they could lay their hands upon. The most pleasing part of the story to tho relator seemed to be the remembrance of the unmerciful whipping which he or dered to be administered to the men and women concerned in it. This is no singu lar case; informarion reaches me daily, which I do not intend to reveal, which proves beyond all doubt that the first gun fired against the United States Govern ment will explode a powder magazine, the vaults of which extend beneath the feet of the whole South.
