Trk Pbaci Cosfsrxmci ?On Saturday, in the Peace Conference, Mr. Baldwin, of Conn., moved to substitute his proposition for a National Con vention, In lieu of Mr. Uuthrie'a proposition, re> ported from the committee. He sustained bis motion in an elaborate speech, in which b? re viewed the condition of affjira and the cauaes which bad produced them He believed theonly remedv now was a National Convention. Any other proposed remedies would fall to meet the wishes of the two House* of Congress. Mr. Guthrie, of Ky , opposed the motion In an able aptech, and supported the report of the com mittee. of which he was chairman. He urged upon the Convention spe?dy action. There was no time to be lost. If the Convention really In tended to adopt measure* which would restore peace and KoJd brotherhood between the States, thev ought to do so at once. Mr Curtis, of Iowa, followed, bat did not sus tain either the caJl of a National Convention or the report of the committee. It was a disquisition ipon political affairs generally, and could be In terpreted to mean everything or nothing, as the oHr might be The question next aroae as to what the report of t%e committee meant respecting the Territorial question. It was contended by several?among vuLntn was Reverdy Johnson?that It not only applies to our present Territories, but to future acquisitions also; and with that view he (Mr Joiinson) should move an amendment so as to ex clude territory hereafter to be acquired The debate was kept up to nearly 3 o'clock, vUn tiey adjourned until this morning at eleven Mock ?*.RKAn* ? i errapin ts a aim peculiarly lndl to this section of country?to tbat border lay ttie waters of the Chesapeake.

These emblems are represented in a blaze of light or glory, emanating from the constellation of stars representing the States of the Union by which thevare encircled. Overall, In large and beautiful ornamented characters, are engraved the words "Union Bsll." The succeasof the ball seems to be guaranteed beyond question by the tact that all the arrangements thus far have been pla-ed In most responsible hands. The grouna for the ball-room was broken this morn ing with aboat one hundred hands at work, and the job progresses rapidly, of course.

Giomitows. February I?. 1961. The MiftgMtton of "A Military Subscriber." In 9atnrday*f Star, that the military procMaion on the vttd tnitsnt should Tisit our city, 1* a cool our, and we bop* will harp the effect intended Georgetown la seldom honored by a visit of milt l tarv or civic processions from her sistor city, and i our r-laima should be taken into consideration at this time for several reasons. In the first place, a military spirit la prevalent here, and we have t several companies which, for patriotiam and mil itary /cal. w|H compare favorably with any in the couiiirv We had lately the pleasure of witneas inga drill by that excellent company, tbe Poto mac Light Infantry. Capt Mr Kenny, and find there la a decided improvement in the corpa in tbe lsat few montba. In many thing* they are equal to the crack rompaniea which have vlaittd , Washington ar.d been ao lauded In tbe nrws pspers Company A, Anderson Riflr*. Cantaln Rodier, we have *?en on the street with Mil men in the ranks, and their marching waa equal to that of veterans. An officer who has teen them all sssnres ua that thl? company, a* well as company B, Cant. Jones, the Csrrington Home Guards, Capt Goddard. and the Scott Rifle*, Capt Berry, all are progressing with great rapidity In the acquisition of a knowledge of military tactics, ana that they would do credit to any community. The same might be said of the Georgetown Mounted Guard. Capt Stuart, who, at their parade on Bridge stmt a few days since, acquitted them lelVes with great telat. Some of theee companies will no doubt be prepared to take a place in the procession, If one is contemplated. Another reason we should not be overlooked is that our citizens are devoted to the I'nion and cherish the memory of Washington, and would like to parti eipite In any movement In honor of tbe day And still another reason is that there are several objecta hWe well worth a visit. There la the new and beautiful bridge across Rock Creek; and that ataunch Union man, Mr. Robert King, superin tendent of the water works, says he will not only have the national flag flying, but la preparing a fountain at tbe bridge which will be (i operation on that day. Then there la that unique looking object, the high service reservoir. Lieut. Morton has had tbe walk* and terraces around It all "graveled with cinders," ai an lr!?h friend says; and if the march ia not too far, arrangements will be made for the troons to form there, which wonld be a sight worth looking at. Will they come* The young jrentlemen of the Georgetown di vision of tbe National Volunteer organization, anxious no doubt to perfect themselves In tbe military art, proceeded on Tuesday evening to their room (or what was their room) In Forrwt Hull, but found tbe door seenrelv fastened. thus barring all Ingres* On iuquiry tbev were in formed that the Government bad leased the entire building, and the room they wanted was already occupied, the ac outretnents of Company 4, An derson Rifles, being stored therein They de parted, but whether they drilled, and if so, whereabouts, are questions we are unable to answer Capt Kodler has the key of that room, we understand. It looks very much as tf the Georgetown division is to share the fate of the parent Association in yoar city, which seems like a "Zincalf,'- to have no permanont abiding place; or t be like the ilert sent out by father Noah from the Ark, which ' found no rest for the sole of her foot;" but that similitude goes no further.
