The following resolutions wi re read and discussed, and laid over untttl to-night for adoption: " (/'mild w? Stand "?Whereas, some of the States, ctfiiposing the United States, have assumed an attttule of defiance and hostility to the Federal Governn^nt; and. whereas, we admit the right of no St4'?e to secede from the Union, to renounce her own?or to absolve her people from their allegiance tlferetc; and, whereas, " the unity of government fcvhicb constitutes us one people," has been fhejmaln pillar of our real independence, of our pros)jerity and greatness as a nation, and of the resne^t we have commanded abroad: and ? 1 1 whereaa we do as our fathers did before ua, cherish a coldial, habitual, and Immoveable attachment to 4ur National Union Therefore? We, w*io have hereunto aigned our names, do aolemnly declare and mutually pledge ourselves to each other, and to the world, that we will, under al?, circumstances, and at every hazard and cost, to t{<e last dollar we p< and the last drop of blood'ln our veins adhere to and support the Constitution of the United Stat**, the Union and the Federal Government in the enforcement of the laws ,?nil the maintenance of its authority. And w<? further declare, that we will hold all men, inhabitants of any cf the States, as traitora and enemies who will not thus support and sustain the Union, the Constitution, and the National Government; conscientiously believing that unless ' we, the people of the United Sta'rs," are loyal to our Union and Government in this dark hour of trial and peril, we al-till be falae to our fathers, false to ourselves, false to our children, and falae to freedom; and shall sink Into anarchy only to emerge Into d?fpotlsni. and thereby Justly become a s. orn and a hissing, a by-word and reproach in the sight of the civilized world Affair* is Alexandria ? From this mornlng'a | liKKIKThe Virginia Central Railroad suffered anoth'r landslide yesterday. It took place near Kccktlsh Stition, and detained the traina. ao that the Lynchburg train, due in this city at 1 30, was compelled to remain on the Charlottesville aide of the tr^ck, and exchange passengers with the up train, which left Alexandria at 7 o'clock in the morning, and which was prevented from proceeding to Lynchburg by the slide. Iloth trains then returned^ one to Lynchburg and the other to Alexandria,?the latter arriving here about 3 o'clock. The announcement that a Confederate States' flag would be hoiated on the flag-stall at the Marshall House, ro.lected quite a large assemblage in that neighborhood vesterdav ?(i?nn?n i tlajf was hoisted about 4 o'clock, and greeted with cheers and a salute of artillery. The weather continued up to yesterday to toe very unpropitious for the Potomac fisheries. tseveral American tlags in addition to those already up, were raised yesterday at private residences la this city. Rsported Arrk*t for Mcrder ?A gentleman from Baltimore stated yesterday that be had caused the arrest of John Mylan In that city, for killing police sergeant Jordan. This case occurred during the political riots which occurred in that city two years or more ago. Mylan was afterwards in this city, employed as a back man The information was given to officers here.
