I _ _ . THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: THIMOAV April IS, 1*61. Spirit of the .Warning Press The Inttlligtmrt argues that the 75,WK) men railed for bv the President have been summoned In prospect of contingent eventualities, which may sever arise, if only the people of the border alavebolding States shall determine to exert their potential influence in favor of the Union and of the preservation of the public peace The RertMitm savs : " If the ties of blocd are to determine the course of Virginia, sbe will go with tbe region on the north of the Ohio, and not the region on the Gulf." VmoiwiA.?The morning papers contain nothing deBn'.te concerning the proceedings of the Virginia Convention, merely informing m that up to 3 p. m. yesterday no ordinance of secession had been passed. On Tuesday morning they went into secret session without debate, and since, hare carefuily kept their doors closed The Richmond Fxamintr of Tneadav IntimntM that th? eastern Virginia rr.ember* were for the enactment of a secession ordinance with great unanimity, and that it wai understood that sufficient of the western members had gone over to that position to give the secessionists a clear minority. We fear. alas. that this la too true; and that the Convention i* now engaged in perfecting such measure* at will as far aa )>osaible strengthen the position of the State, acceded, and in hostile array toward the Government of the I'nlted States If this Impression should unfortunately turn out to be correct, we can s?*e no other conceivable result of Virginia's aclUn whatever, than that the bloodiest civil w?r known to modern times will speedily follow, to be stepped eventually only by the interposition of England, France and perhaps other powerful Kuropeon natiors which will send combined fleets to our waters. How much we deplore this state of things?the passage or our national troubles beyond the reach of prtsent pacification by negotiation through the courae pursued by Virginia we cannot express, and frankly confess that it so distresses us personally, as that we are unable to write more to-day. Latest?As we go to press we have to say tbst It ia aaid, and confidently believed by many around us, that on the day before yesterday the Virginia Convention passed a secession ordinance, and yesterday caused three vessels to be sunk at the mouth of the Elizabeth river?the entrance to the Gosport (Norfolk) navy-yard. Further: that the superintendent of the Harper's Ferry armory has. by order of the Convention, hauled down the tars snd stripes, and hoisted instead the Virginia State flag, and also caused the rails of the Baltimore and Ohio railroad to l>e torn up on both sides leading out of Harper's Ferry; and, further still, that the Virginia Convention have directed military efforts to take possession of this Capitol, to be made as soon as possible; to which end three special trains are said to have left Alexandria for Richmond lest night. This alleged news reaches us too late to enable __ I# ?*? * - - - - ua wo ve;ny it- *> r puoiisa it lor what it may be worth, that all Sn our city may be duly on their guard Ws have to add thit the Government's military movements of tc-day seem to have been made oa the assumption that this new* Is, possibly, true. They are therefore fully prepared for tli? present defence of the Federal Metropolis, against any attacking force that may venture to assail it It la thought that If an attempt to attack It be mide, the assailants will try lu cross the Potomac "t>e twenty or thirty miles be!o*r Alexandria, W ere tb?y hrpetobe joined by siinllar spirits lrum Maryland P 8 ?W? have a special dispatch assuring us that there Is no truth in the Harper's Ferry account noticed above.
