IntiUtgtnttT denounces tte secret sessions of the South Carolina Convention as despotic and i forfeiting one of the most precious securities of personal and political Independence. The Constitution of this morning fairly hotels with rage that the Gov. Wise plan for the subjugation of Washington by his Minute Men and ' National Volunteers" Is likely to fail through the prompt action cf lien Scott. The R>pub!iran believes that the Southern appointments in the Cabinet of >!r. Lincoln will be deferred till bis arrival in this city. A SkisHt Set Back.?The-Legislature of Vlr!glnla, in calling their State Convention, which it to meet on the 13th of February proximo, having provided that the people in electing delegates to it shall also vote for or against the reference of the Convention's action back to tb* people, the Richmond Enquirer, the organ of the disunionists per se in that State, berates the body (the Legislature) unmercifully for having virtually abandoned the cause of the South, and " all that sort of thing " The same wise precaution of the Virginia Legislature hea given like deep offense to the conspirators against the peace of the country and the continued existence of the Union, here. The latter have froari the first en^in> ered the scheme so as to allow the people nowhere tbe privilege of sitting In judgment npon the acts of their (theae conspirators') agents in the several slaveholding State?, and a successful termination of their plotadepends In great measure upon their being allowed by the people <o usurp tfce government of the South unquestioned by formal popular inquests anywhere They commenced wi;h the dec laration thnt they aimed but to svcure - peaceful and conatitutional accession," and have already illustrated th^t they r-Silv design revolution bv force i.t arrr.s. hv taking potttssion not only of United Stitft forti! fixations, Ac., in a State claiming tohavesec<ded, but in several States making no inch pretentions, and a It j by the ute of triors Tom one Stite that had a t preteuded to have seceded, in another State alto not pretending to have seceded. That such proceeding! on their part are awakening the 6j*a jiJe people of the South to a realization of the fact tba'- under pretense of seeking to conserve southern rights, an irresponsible secret council are rapidly placing upon their necks the yoke of an atrocious military despotism, It evident in recent proceeding! of the people In the town of North Alabama, where Senator Clay retide1, by which the Alabama Convention now in teM'.on were duly notified that if they dare to aatume to make a government for Alabama without submittrtig their action In the premises to the consent or rejection of the people, North Alabama ^.-111 promptly reaist its authority by force of arius. How the sime purpose on the part of the disunion lata of Virginia ia being received by thoae of that State who have all to loae and nothing to gain by exc hanging peace, plenty, prosperity and the accumulated blessings of civil liberty secured by the existing Union, for the state of things so far as the rights and interests if the citizen disposed to be quiet and lnduatr ous, la concerned, In Mexico and the ?outh American petty r?pub1 a -? * ? - ? - - iic?, may uc unuer vooa ai a glance irom tbe following extract from the unanimously adopted resolution* of a recent mee'ing of the working men of Portsmouth, (Va ,) as follows. Viz.: Whereas, the politicians of the United States, taking advantage of the necessitous condition of tbe workingmen of the country?who are compelled to devote all tbeir energies and etl'orts to the maintenance of themselves aud tbeir families, have for a number of years fast governed the nation without regard for our Interests or care for our condition; and Whereas, by the rule of said politicians, the sood old. ahio of under u'hotA Bjut ik? working men of the couutry have enjoyed to many blessing*, La* been guided near on to the breaker* of destruction, and amid the whirlpool of anarchy and confuaiou; and Whereas, by the rule of aaid politician*, the credit of our country has been injured, and our financial resources to crippled, at to place the Government in a very humiliating position before the whole civilized world; and Whereaa, the workingmen of the city of Porta^ mouth, being vitally interested in the prosperity of our couutry, and the perpetuity of the Lnlou, feel called upon to utter our most solemn protest against the course heretofore pursued ny the politicians In Congress, aa Itinerant preachers of sedition and disunion; therefore, he it Ktsolvtd, That we hoid this Government to be the wiseat, most enlightened and most equal in ita operations on all the people thereof that it is possible for human fallibility to conceive. tUsolvtd, That we look upon any attempt to break up this Government or dissolve this Union as an attack upon the rights of the people of the whole country, and tending to destroy the position of equality assumed by us all. Resolvtd, That we hold thattbe Constitution of the United States is not a league or compact between the States. In their sovereign capacity, but a government proper, founded on the adoption of the people, ana creating direct relations between the citizens and it?eli.

Ktsolvtd, That we look upon secession at the South, and abolition nullification at the North, as having one meaning, viz , treason.
