Mr. t'Atioi B. !?*itii. of luditnu, also spoke In favor of ihe resolution Ilo wan for doing everything that was honorable and Just to bring about an amicable Settle ment. Mr. C.msii, of Ohio, aUo ru.itained tho roMluttoo, ana made an exceedingly conservative speech. He was will h ivncede everything that was proper and right to the border States, aa<l lie thought that by mutual concessions on all sides lite troubles that now menaced the t'mon might bo happily and speoiliy averted. Mr. Skppkm. of Virginia, coincided with much th?t had be en paid. He hoped the resolution would bo adopted, and that the Convention would proceed at oooe to the Im portant matter for wbtch they assembled. Judge Kcttw, of North Carolina, made a powerful ap peel la b< half, as be said, of tho Old North -Hale, whose peeple wero anxious for a settlement of the questions at Issue between the two sections. He alluded to tho alarm log posture <f affairs, and the imminent p-ril?f the country. The questions before this Convention wero of the blithest importance, and be urg>"d every member to lay aside bis party feelings and devote himself to the cause of his country. His speech was listened to with profound attention. Mr. AmobTvck, of New Hampshire, spoke In favor of the resoluton. He, too, was anxious for an early settle ment of the agitating questions that divide the two sec tion 8. Other speeches were made, and tho debate was con tinued uttil nearly three o'clock, when tho question was put and unanimously carried. The delegations will make tbeir selections, and report to the Convention to morrow morning. In the Peace Convention to day a resolution was intro duced proposing to conduct the proceedings with opon doors. This was earnestly discussed, and the result was a restriction upon the Commissioners from Communicat ing their doi> gs to outside parties, an act scarcely neces sary considering that but little mrloslty is manifested concerning their movements. The Commissioners are socially harmonious, but as yet they have discussed no meature locking to political results. Af er some further preliminary business, among which war a motion that the Convention furnish the press with a sync pels of their proceedings each day, which was re ferred to a committee, who are to report upon It to-mor row, the Convention adjourned. Ihe parading of I'nitod States troops on Pennsylvania avenue every morning, by order of General ''cott, causos deep indignation in the minds of Southern delegates to the Peace Cot press. They regard those movemeits as a menace and th out on the pait of the North, and it will undoubtedly have the effect to retard a peaceable solu tion of the difficulties which the Convention have assem bled f overcome. Minnesota will appoint delegates to the Pnoe Con ference. Judge Goodrich and Captain H'akely, now hero, will probably be appointed by Governor Ramsey. Ihe Peace Conference goes on quietly, but doet nit command much attention. It is thought by some "South ern members that the commissioners may agree up?o Crittenden's compromise, modified so as to compose a fieLate of two classes (f msabors, Vorthorn and toutn em, with the corstitutiona! prov rion that no new terri tory shall be acquired without the sanction of a majority of each ci'-ss, this proposition to be submitted to a con vention c? mposi d of delegate-1 chos?n directly from the people Urn. C. Hives spoko earn?*tl$- on the subject, and there is a fair prospect that the Conference will speedily act accordingly. The latest speculations In rep tblican circles about the Pence Conference are to the effect that the proceedings will be protracted until after the 4th of March. Delay is derired by non compromisers, in order that Mr Llo ooln shall have the eclat of presenting propositions In his , inaugural that will lead to a peaceful solution of the difficulties. A report wss current to-night that New Jersey had sent rival delegations to the Conference. It arose from the circumstance that a delegation of Jerseymi>n had ar rived, with instructions to advocate the supp irt of U)? 1 {proposition of tho Committee of Thirty throo beforo the 1 Congrrrnncn from New Jersoy.

It Is known that they intend to ex haust all honorable means to preserve the Union, but that unless tb' lr rifhUi are folly guaranteed they will go for scccss-ion.

The Marion reached her dock a short tlinc before the Jamep Adgcr sailed for Charleston. There waa hut little excitement on the pier, aud no uniformed poltooinen wero to be seen. The Marlou bad apparently but ? light freight, and but few of tho passengers were visible on tbe*dock. A report prevailed through the city yesterday atternaou that the salute fired on the Battery was In honor of tho arrival of the Marlon, but on inquiry we learned that It was on account of the result of the Virgin* el^ctio i. We were able to learn the following Interesting par ticulars from several of tbe wives of the Fort Sumter heroes:? The provisions in the garrison are biw nearly out, and they aw reluced to tho supplies of flour aad pork. They are not allowed to get anything from Charleston either in the way of edibles or clothing, and the Charl.-Htonuus appear to be determined to starve tbe gariison oat siuce Major Anderson declined to receive the meat and vege tables offered him by Gov. Pickens, and, sal'l one of oar Informants, ?' they would not sell as a single thin?, not even a pair of sbneo for oar children or mediotM for oar stck." lfce garrison are all tr a and cheerful, nadeeadyta resist an attack, for which they are fully aw ?re prepara tions arc being made, as they understand that the threat flentii g battery is nearly completed They would prefer an attack to being starved out. When tbe Star of the West attempted to reach tbe fort she was anxiously watched, and had her errand been known MijorAtiler Fon would certainly have opened die on Fort Woull-ie When the Marion left Chuleston on Sunday last there was only the regular garrison in Fort Sumter, and the report of the reluf.it cement is wholly incorroct, unie<<a 1' occurred stnec that lime. The Charlestonlans allow no lettert to reach F?rt sum tcr unless they have been opened by the authorities. Newspapers arc allowed to n<aih the fort.
