THE NEW YORK HERALD. ( ^TflOLE NO. 8870. MORNING EDITION? FRIDAY , DECEMBER 21, 1880. PRICE TWO CENTS. IMPORTANT FROM TOE SOUTH. Actual Secession of South Carolina. The Unanimous Passage of the Secession Act in the State Convention. THE ORDINANCE OF SEPARATION. Great Rejoicings w the Streets of Charleston. Speech of Mr. Pugh in the United States Senate. Passage of the Paeifie Railroad Bill in the House as a Palliative Measnr, Im.) *?., kt? TIE SECESSION OF 801TH CAKOL VA. Wahdnotox, Doc. ao, isao. The news from Charleston of the passage by muni, mouflvoteof the ordinance of secession , although ex peeled , causes great excitement here. In the House the members from the Culf States gath ered In numbers, and with Joyful expressions at the in formation. Among others It produces various comments. The general feeling, however, seems to be one or painful regret that in the midst of so great efforts and proposed sacrifices to preserve tho Union South Carolina should have been launched upon her solitary career. It is thought that she has exhibited but little consideration ^or those of her sister States, who, with equal catiao for secession, defer their action for Joint consultation and procedure. It was suppose.! the Convention would hold off until the 22d of February, at the request of some South Carolina members of Congress, Members of Congress who had paired off, with the in tention of going homo to pass the holidays, have re considered their determination, and some will remain, as thsy believe the moment for decisive action for weal or woe will be reached within a few days. The city is Oiled with rumors from Charleston about the capture of the forts, he., none of which are well founded Tex o'Clock P. VI The excitement con*equoni upon the reception of the first report of the passag.- of the secession ordinance by South Carolina has partially subsided, and the city is tin usuaDy composed to night. The good byes of retiring South Carolina members of th<> House were distinguished ft* their excellent humor, and the oocasion seemed more Mks a departure of friend, than of persons bound on a re volutionary mission. THE SOUTH CAROLINA SOVEREIGNTY CONVENTION. PROCEEDINGS OP THE CONTENTION contintation or thk third iut. Cluatswmx. Dec 30. 1SA0. Chancellor Prxxt* off. red a resolution that a commute be appointed to inquire and report wliat m.-aaur.*, tem porsry or permanent can he adopted in reference to cos torn bouses and posui arrangements, In coo??quenc? of the withdrawal of South Carolina from the Cnion, rmxrai.ism nrxKtx's armr-n. Chancellor Drxxw said-Mr President,! do not know that a particular amendment is of very much oonse quence I supposed this committee would have autho rlty to take Into consideration what has been termed postal arrangements, and I think so now A Voica? ' That's so. Mr. I'rxxtx ? It la verj difficult to define snd distinguish, but when you come to consider what we have to do, it will b^ no great stretch to say that a Committee on Cbm merclal Relations might take Into consideration our postal arraagementa as a part of I la commercial transactions and I did snppcae, when my friend submitted hi* resold Hon for appointing the oommlttee, that it would have that authority ; and with due deference to the gentleman whom I greatly reapcct.I would that there might be. question upon this. I do not believe the Convention en tertalns a doubt about the committee. They may, If they think proper, take Into consideration postal arrange ments. The Prestdsal has done me honor by placing mo on the committee to prepare an ordinance of the with drawal of tlilt State from what has been called the federal Intoa. I do Sot tfcuik I act in violation of confldenc. M a member of that committee to act upon the okitter they are united ('mothered applause.) If any dolaj takes place it will be simply for lh< purpose of pr. pariui. an ordinance in a manner wasMent with its cff*t an.' the dignity of the State, sir, I am sure that that ordl aanoe will not be submitted to morrow. We have heej working this morning, and agtin will work this evening We don t Intend to ho h?siy.

I ty minutes as a vagrant or pirate. No vesse would venture that peril. The Collector knew this. Do didn't do It. He gave notice he would hold Lis commis sion subject to the direction of the Convention of the people of South Carolina, when here assembled. IIo knew that a midden stoppage would have been aocom {?anted by the most mischievous consi-quea. , >s. He U prepared now, an<l he holds bis commission under the direction and at the will of the Convention, or of this body, of which he expects to owe allegiance, and to whom he eipects to owe allrgi&nee alone. Let us pass postal ar rangements. Mr. President Mirabeau many years ago said tliat the flercost insurrections were those which area from the stomach. I'eople without broad won't bear reason; their patriotism is dead. Sir, next to bread In our artificial state of society is light. I don't mean tho glorious light of the heavens; I mean tho infor mation and intelligence. Next to broad people must have information. They must have light. If sir, you suddenly withdraw this light for eight and forty hours, or cause an interruption In postal arrangements, you stop the means of communication. Sir, the perilous consequences whirb would result from It will be easily appreciated by every thinking man in every corner of the Stat*. Sir, It 4toull not be done suddenly. Wo should have a little time to effect common arrangements Now, in regard to postal arrangements, it is to be done by a congress. Don't let me be misunderstood.* I as sume that to-morrow vfn take the attitude of a sovereign State . 1 will assume that the national men at the hoad of the federal government, when the mutter is presented them, will see that the rights we assume- -our rights must be recognised. Without that they will be prepared soon to hear we are out of the Union. By slowly acting they will then be prepared to treat with us in oomtnerce, upon postal arrangements, upon any other matter. Let me snv , Mr. President, I don't use argument from their feelings but their interests, as important to them as to us, and a certain time should bo give* As in the In stance of a copartnership proposed to bo drawn up, it is reasonable that ordinary time be given to effect our purposes. You can't act until you are out of the Union. The object should be t<> make temporary arrangements , and that very shortly , so as to keep up common e. If we please, the postal arrangement, which I consider a part of the great commercial relations of the country can be kept up until we hear the government is prepared to say yea or nav. Mr. I "resident. I have said I got iiy information about the Collector from the newspapers; as to the post masters of the State. I think I might say the same thing. From a number I know I oould snv they are ready ; they are onlv desirous of knowing from this Convention what is proper for the welfare and the advancement of this great cause. Mr President, what I have s.iid as to the Collector of Charleston I emild only specify from what I read iu the papers For the Postmaster of Charleston I have a right to speak a little more authentically. I say, sir, that at this very moment he is prepared to put his commission in the hands of the Governor of the State, to be forwarded to the Department , whenever, in the opinion of tho Governor . through this Convention. It shall be deemed expedient for the welfare of South Carolina, to which alone, after its withdrawal, he will look. I do in justice, however. I come short. He has lived to tho time appointed for man. and rather beyond it, and I say, in all the difficulties and troubles he may have encoun tered in that long period of time, that they have been as nothing to the relief which he is aflbrded. He has inti mate thai ho is ready to put his commission this night in the hands of the Governor of the State. Now. sir. we know what the Collector will do ; we know what tlie postmasters throughout the State are prepared to do. Now, sir, I have a resolution which I intend to offer to this committeo, not merely for them, but to ilnd out j wlwt temporarv or permanent arrangements It is ex pedient to adopt , in reference to the withdrawal of this State from the Union, for commercial and postal arrange- | ments. Sir, I suppose that ths committee would not j report until it liad conferred with the tlovernor, so as not to disturb the ordinary relation*, and not until it bad heard what was propoet-d to be done on the subject. Some gentlemen suggest an allowance for oopferenco of ten days ; some suggest one month ; some snirgest a longer j tune sav two months, or after the aswemblin* of the two conventions of our sister states, which meet on the 7th | and 17th of .lauuary respectively. It was sug jested that a temporary arrangement oould go into opera tion on the 20th of January, so that time would be hi von for the g. neral government to know our views and make remlv to answer, yea or nay, whether they are cilepi i<> treat ; but In tin' meantime tho ordinary occnpHt "< onr cKlaens ape to go oo. One matter more: to tlie revenue* The lMstmaster of Charleston, most nkelv world k'-ep an account until the transaction was' settled ? January lTtb. My friend from St. Michaels proposed one Item. It was proposed that the money received by the postmasters, or any of tbem. -houid be considered in sccount and settled with the general government t n the day of the ratiQcatlon of tho ordinance At the sitting of this oonventkm a month hei,< all these matters will be arranged as between two part ies In the meantime the accounts should go on. m thai no sudden disruption shall take place. Sir, I merely suggest thl?, as it has b.<cn spoken of by others. Secretary ( ( bb si. id thai the revenue of South Carolina from the Custom House didn't near pay the expens.-aol the customs. K>r tlie la-t quarter 1 understand from the best authority that the i?>*t otl.ces of South Carolina cost the govern inert fj4t)OUO, and the receipt* havo been le-? than #60 (>00 Therefore. Mr ITealdent, there Is no great ap prehension In that wav. But accounts should be kept In the meantime the usual business transactions bould be allowed to proceed until It was ascertained what were the views of U>o administration, who I linve no doubt are entirely friendly to us, and will do everything can be done in order to prevent any in convenience Mr President.! have only a srord more I will then take my seat We are at the Inauguration of a great cause Ail of us look w ith an undivided eye to the consequences "f that move ( me of the nvwt pronft m nt and most favorable is the unanimity which prevails m thte State of South Carolina, a unanimity not only uneipected, sir, but un pr. eedented * I might go furllter and ha) w to the sympathy found in other States, it IS to a certain degree unexpe. l?t. It has surpassed. I may ?sy, ever> expectation The great object should be to preserve unanimity and form, and not chill this sympathy of our Sontbern sisiers Now, Mr. President. I have said step for a dav, *hut up for a day the port of Charles ton, and the sl.lpe now loa kng with the products of our country would rot be, ore they would go to se*.

If there be a dollar rlaimed which is not justly duo the Untied States, let tlouth Carolina be desolated before that dollar is {laid. (Smothered applause.) There is one ?>n dition of public affairs to which I wish for a moment to advert in consequence of the remarks which fell from the gentleman on the resolution just disposed of. It is this ? when the State of South Carolina and this Omveution have passed this ordinance of s< ?cession ; when, in full con sideration of these responsibilities which are about to is sue, it shall be the determination of South Carolina to up hold the position of an independent State, it becomes us, as men who represent the public sentiment of South Caro lina. to look boldly in the eye of the responsibilities of the imsition. I shall vote against any action if there is to be a joint ownership, copartnership or agency of any kind between tho United Stnes and South Carolina. Un less they stand to each o'licr in this relation of equal Inde pendence, sovereign, mutually recognizing one another; if I have to muke an act of secession, if 1 have to qualify this ordinate after it is (wssed, all of it shall be for the dignity of Carolina. One word more. There is one position to which we may be brought, and it Is the petition which, so far as on- man is concerned, I shall avoid above all others ? it is the position of having the State of South Carelina to seem to the world to be al lowed to exercise its right of secession by the permis sion of the United fitates. Other States are preparing to secede. There are States going into conventions. Pro visions might be made to arrest their progress. I don't wiuit South Carolina to secede because Mr. Buchanan or any other man ? besld. s the people of Soutit Carolina? de sire not to see it. Come what may, whatever conse quences it may involve, 1 think It best becomes the peo ple to meet these consequenoes in the largest assertion. It may bt Mr Rcihanan is the friend of South Carolina. I don't say he is. I disclaim that he is. I admit no other conclusion. From the events transpiring before me, ex cept that in the issue now before the country, the Presi dent of the I'nited States will consummate this declara tion. which will inevitably arouse war with the incoming President. Mr Maprath then asked pardon of the Con vention for inflicting a speech. The following is the termination of the proceeding of Wednesday. We also again print the resolutions of Mr. Memminger in full? R< solved, Ihnt a commission, consisting of three per sons. b<' elected by ballot of the Convention to proceed to Washington to negotiate with the United States and act through their general government as to the proper ar rangements and measures to be made or adopted In the existing relations of the parties, and for the oontinuance of pence and amity \yetween them. Resolved, That tlve persons be elected by this Con vention, who shall be author i red to meet such deputies as may be appointed by any other slaveholdiug State, for the purpose of organising or forming a Southern con federacy, with the power to discu?s and t-ettle upon a constitution or plan of Union to be reported to said States for their ratification. am<ndmeut or rejection, and that the said deputies shall invite a meeting at Colum bia or at such other place as may be agreed upon among the deputies of the several States, and shall report to the Convention such constitution for articles as may be ugrctd on by the said deputies. The first was referred to the Committee on Foreign Re lations, and the second to the Committee on the Slave holding States of North America. Mr. Mazvck introduced the following: ? Resolved, That a committee to consist of ? mem bers lie appointed, whose duty it shall be to inquire and report to this Convention how' much of the legislation of Congress would be i;?o facto abrogated, so far as this State Is concerned, by the secession of this State from the national 1 men. and how mui h of it wight remain of force notwithstanding the act of secession. This was made the special order for to morrow. Mr. Oxk moved to adjourn, and at forty minutes past three adjourned. FOCBTH JUT. Charus**.*, Dec. 90, 1S?0.

G Km now or ink Sknatt ajto Hormt or RKrvwrmnvisa : You have called me to preside iu< ehief magistrate of South Carolina at a critical juncture in our public aflkirs I deeply feel the responsibilities of the position 1 am about to assume. For seventy-throe years thin State has been connected by a federal compact with co-States, under a bond of union for great national objects common to all. In recent years there ha* l>een a powerful party organized upon principles of ambition and fanaticism, whose undisguised purpose is to divert the federal go vcrrment from external, and turn its power upon the Internal Interests and domestic Institutions of these States. They hare thus combined a party ex clnsively In the Northern State*. whose avowed objects not only endanger the peace, but the very existence of nearly one half the Slates of this Confedera cy ; nnd in th * rrrmi rlrrfivn ft/r I'rrtirttt* and r?* Prmi (Imt nf thrtr Stair* , tkry hare earner* Ik * rlertitm Vpm prtn rijl-t that ma).' i' nr< longer tnf' far ut to nriy u/xtn the t-wntqj tkefnieral ?t tSr guaranty* of th' fn'rral r??M mi. This Is the great overt act of the people in the North* rn States at the ballot box, In the exercise of thxr am ?? ngn power at ths polls, from which there is no higher sppeal reoognlsed under our svstsm of govern raenl in its ordinary and habitual operations. They thn propose to inaugurate a Chief Magistrate at the head of ths army ana nnvv, with vast powers, not to preside ov< r the con.ini n Interest* and destinies of all the States alike, but u|?? issues of malignant hostility and uncom promising war to be waged upon the rights, the Interests and the pence of half the States of this I'nion. In the Southern Mates these are two entirely distinct and sepa rnte races, and me has been held In subjugation to the other by jieaoeful Inheritance from worthy and patriotic snosi 'is, and sll who know the races well know that It I the only form of governnu nt that can preserve both and administer the blessings of civilisation with order and >n harmony. Anything tending to change or weaken thl< government and the subordination between the races, no- only endangers the peace but the very existence of our security. We have for years wirned the Northern people of the dangers tbsv were proiluclng by their wan U n and lawless course We have often appealed to onr Mt-b r States of the South to act with us in concert upon sons lirm but moderste system. by whu h we might be able, If possible, to save the federal constitution, and yet feel safe under the general compact Of I'nion. But we could obtain no fair hearing from the Morth, nor conld we see any concerted plan proppsed by our collates of the South, calculated to make as feel safe and secure. Vndor all these circumstances, we now have no alterna tive left but to intcrpi?a our sovereign power as sn independent State, to protect the rights an I ancient privileges of the people of South Carolina. 11, is State was one of the original partlea to the federal com|isct of the Union We agreed to It as a State snder peculiar circumstances, when we were surrounded with great external pressure for purposes of national protects n and general welfare of all tne States equally and alike; and when it rssses to do this It is no longer a perpetual I'tilon. It wou|<| be an absurdity to si w*#e it was a perpefcisl I'nion for our ruin.

WASirrwiioji, Dec. 20, 1800 Telegraphic reports from Charleston, announcing the passage 01 the seceMioa ordinance, create immense ex citement here The VHrKnih and opposing currents of opinion which have distracted the public mind seem nt length to be taking one direction. While every project with a sanitary ob ject hitherto has embraced different proportions, its principal feature has been a return to the Missouri compromise line. Although men from the North and fr< m the South, when contemplating such a compro 'mice, entertain different views upon it In ono respect, in others they seem to be approaching common agreement. The South adhere* to the constitutional provision that at the south of the dividing line slavery shall not be dis turbed durktg the Territorial condition. The Northern republicans think that the status of these Territories being that of slavery, the South should be satis1?-d with the Missouri compromise restored in its lau guage. loading men on all sides are looking to some such com promise, and the growing probabilities are that the con cession to the South of a dividing line and constitutional protection of their institution In the Territories at the South of it during the Territorial condition, will ultimate ly satisfy the South and repair the fractured Union. It will bo recollected that this last is the prominent feature of the scheme offered for the city members by John Coch rane. Of the plan of Crittenden ami of Johnson, of Ten nessee, it is increasing in favor evory hour, and may yet a second time save the confederation. The Pacific Railroad bill passed the House by a decided mft.i<>rity. Its Urge vote was secured by the hope that its passage would be a great pacificatory measure. It will unquestionably so act. and may bo considered as the fitting counterpoise in the day's proceedings to the se cession of South Carolina. Advices from Tennessee to-night report reluctance to adopt extreme measures, but as the North have evinced no disposition to conciliate, secession is the only alterna tive. A grand elTbrt will now be made to combine the entire strength of tbo conservatives on Crittenden's proposition. The matter has been canvassed by a number of Northern delegations, and the attainment of the object will bo pro secuted with the utmost vigor and zeal. At a conference of the Pennsylvania delegation to-night the subject was introduced. The Pennsylvania delegation met to-night, at eight o'clock, at Aventio Hotel, pursuant tcf adjournment. Senator Bigler occupied the chair: Hon. Robert McKnight. secretary, was not present, in consequence of the death of a child. Tho number in attendance was not large. On the meet ing being called to order. Senator Bigler submitted as a motion that the delega tion adopt the first part of Senator Crittenden's proposi tion for the restoration of the Missouri line as a basis <f compromise to be offered the South. After a general conversation, in which Messrs. Covodo Blair, Hale and others participated, the motion was reject ed, but one vote being in favor, that of Gov. Bigler. The republicans stated that by adopting the proposi tlon the party would bo surrendering the fruit* of ihcir Presidential victory. The meeting adjourned fint Ji <?. The Virginia legislature convenes on the 7th of.Tanua. ry, and will probably call a State Cnnventoa. The Le gislature of New York meets on the 1st of Januuv Should the republican Governor of New York recom mend a State Convention, and the Legislature concur, and the Convention bejheld, there is no doubt thc( Con vent Ions of these two States could agree upon an adjustment satis factory to both North and South. Such a course la strongly urged here and hoped for. The Senate Committee on Territories met this morning. They decided to postpone action on the Territorial bills before them antll they had boen disposed of In the Hoom. The chairman will call up the question of the admission of Kansas on^Monday next, when she will probably bo admitted. The petit km asking aid from the general government for the suffering people In Kansas was taken up, and will be examined and acted upon at the next meeting. Om mod ore Stewart, hotter known as "Old Ironsides,'' at bis own request, is detached from the command of the Philadelphia Navy Yard, where he has boen for seven consecutive years. Captain Pupont ha* been ordered to relieve him. Several leading and Influential men from Philadelphia have arrived here for the purpose of urging upon Cuo gn-?* to devise some mode of settlement. They state that the suffer ti g of the poorer claase* * bo have been thrown out of employment is very gr?at, and that unless something Is speedily done they would not answer for the consequence*. WAMnnmm, Dec. 30, 1MO The subject of llJO admission of Kansas Into ttia i'nion la specially assigned for consideration In the Senat< on Monday neit. If that branch concur with the House \n t pass the bill, the country will hew do more about sufTor ing there, as the authorities of the new (Male will be able to p.wa laws for their own relief and borrow money f>n their own credit. The Ifouse to- -lay baa pawed the Pacific Railroad hill, a* It waa reported from the Select Committee of Fifteen, by the decisive vote of ninety-Are to seventy four. There Is great rejoicing here to-night over the fact, not only by buetacae men North and Houtb and bjr democrats and republicans who view it a* a great political achieve ment? but also by conservative men of all section*, who unite In pronouncing its passage through the Ilous- at this particular Juncture of our national affairs as a great meaeurcof pacification. Callfornians who are here are overjoyed, and are especially grateful to Sir. Orow, who presided over th% Committee of the Whole during the sharp contest made there for the skilful and stole manner to which he executed the ar duous duties Imposed upon him by Um enewtae of tbe bill, who employed ail the tactics that experienced perils mentarlans could use to defeat it. Tbe opinion prevails that it will pars the Senate by a strong rote, fn that branch everything will dcpf-i*! upon the ftouthwatern flrantors. Tin bill provides that the bonds to be Issued to the Foutbern wed shall not exceed thirty gig mil lions, and tbe bonds to tbe central shall not exceed sixty million dollars, psyable In thirty years, to be secured by nvrtgage <n the roads of the com pany, to be reimbursed tn service for th? govern saent the bonds, to Issue upon tne completion of every fifty miles of read. Fire hundred miles oC ros-t and telegraph are to be completed in six years, and the whole within fifteen years, or forfeit all rights an I privi leges granted. The bill also provide* for the grant to the central route of every alternate section of land wlthia one mile of sti> h railroad line, and to the southern route ten alter nate sections per mile on each side from T?xaa to Call fornia and six alternate sections per mile ia California. On the flrM week In tBfc a salon fv>kmei Curtis, Chair man of tbe Pacific Railroad Committee, aatd, In answer to a question on the subject, that be hoped the Itouie would p??s the bill on the very day that south Carolina vot?d to wrede. It Is a singular coincide ut thai C<4oo*l Ottrila hope baa become fact. Mr Gamett, of Virginia, In a speech opposing the bill, announced the fact, received by telegraph, of the patsage ] of tbe recession action Of Houth Carolina.

Mr Adams of MamatbwsMg, made ft p peach sgaifigt ihe proposition. which in highly spoken of by his friends, as ui effort of great ability. His mala point wan, that in ih ^ (enlightened age kthe people of the Waited stales will never submit to have engrafted upon their constitution any word or sentence tint shall in any way recognise pro perty in man. The framers of the constitution evaded such recognition, aiid Mr. Adams thinks that we, their de fendants. should not permit It. Mr. rutin, of Indiana, made a Union speech against tho right of secession and in opposition to Mr. Rust's propo sition. Mr. Morse, of Maine, took similar ground to that oc cupied by Mr. A^ams. Mr. Tapi>an, of New Hampshire. said he believed the republican party would assent to the restoration of the Missouri compromise by Congressional law, bat he expressed tho opinion that the r?rty would never consent to extend that line to the Pacific Ocean with or without tho Additional proviso of protecting slavery south of It; and above all, that his party would never consent to put such a propoei* Ion into the constitution. Mr. N< lson spoke in favor of restoring tbc Missouri line by Congressional law. A committee of citizens arrived here from Baltimore ?o-day, and Invited tho Hon. Emerson Etberldge, of Ten nessee, to deliver an address In that city some day next week upon the present state or tho nation. Ho accepted the invitation, but has not yet namod the 'lay. Senator Nicholson, of Tennessee, has tho floor for Mon day, and there is conslderabio anxiety to know whether he will sustain or assail the positions taken by bis col league (Mr. Johnson). There is an attempt making to restore, through Con gress, the twelve thousand dollars indemnity paid by tbo merchants and others in Boston to prevent the Post Office In that city from being removed from State street. There Is liable to be a sharp contest before tbo job is accom plished. WAMtixarox, Dec. 20, 1M0. A report that South Carolina had passed an ordinance of secession was brought to the House at four o'clock this afternoon. It produced Intense excitement among the members, and for a long time confused the proceedings. The Senate, in executive session to-day, confirmed the appointment of Kdwln M. Stanton as Attorney General, and those of Deputy Postmasters and other minor offices. Among the most active workers in tho House to-day, for the passage of the Paclflo Railroad bill, wero Dr. Ra ynaud and Mr. Farwell, editor of tho Alia California. Senator Raker, of Oregon, was also busy engineering. About $7,500,000 of tho ten million loan has been paid In. Some of tho larger bidders for from $100,000 to $200,000 have deposited the entire amount. The Select Committee of Thirty-three have as yet done nothing wbicb excites particular interest, nor does there appear to be any curiosity respecting their secret move ments. About eighteen young ladies, just seceded from the se minaries in Pennsylvania and New York, passed through Washington to-day on their return to the South. The report of tho proceedings of the late Philadelphia Union meeting were presented by Mr. Florence in the House to day , and were referred to the select committee. THIRTY-SIXTH CONOREHB.

A message was here received from the House, stating that they had pa* ed the bill to supply the deficiency for the postal service of 1M1. Mr K?x**t>T, (opp.) of Md. . thought that the conside ration of Mr Clark's resolutions would take up too much time. Mr. Tknopu , (rep.) of 111. , thought there could be no objection to taking the resolutions up Mr. llrm*, (opp ) of Ya , believed they would be the cause of considerable discussion. Mr. Ransstsr, (opp.) of Del., hoped that tbe friends of tbe Union would not allow any such resolutions to bs considered; It would only add to tbo excitement and de stroy the little harmony left. Mr. Class said the rumors abroad did more to Increase the excitement than anything else He thought the re solutions were the best way to And out the truth of tho whole matter.
