Mr. Johnson of Tenn. made a speech
supporting his former position against se
cession, and defending himseif from the
attacks made in consequence, saying he
had struck treason a blow, and men enga
ged in it, bein? traitors.- felt the blow.
He said the scene yesterday was well
played, got up to order, but whether the
anxious mourners were prepared for the
occasion, ho. could not say. . He ; then dis
cussed the points in Mr. Benjamin's
speech. , Mr. Johnson too"k the ground
that Louisiana had no right to leave the
Union, or to take possession of public pro
perty, without the consent of the rest, and
there was no need to go beyond the Con
stitution . to discover what is treason.
Treason ought to be crushed north aad
south, and traitors should meet with the
traitor's reward. .
Mr. Johnson gave way to a motion to
adjourn.. . i ;
A message was received from the Pre
sident, transmitting from the Governor
of Kentucky resolutions applying to Con
gress to call a Convention to present am
endments to the Constitution.
The'Aresident said it afforded him
great pleasure ta perform this. duty. He
elt confident that Congress - would act
with the careful, consideration of which
the resolution are entitled by their pat
riotic course as well as their importance.
House. Mr. Taylor presented the
Louisiana secession ordinance, and ad
dressed the House at some length there
on, when Messrs. McLean and Staunton
interrupted the gentleman, raising the
point that he wa3 not confining himself
to mere personal explanation.
Mr, Bouligny said his colleague was
making his last speech here, and cer
tainly it was not politic to interrupt him.
Mr. Taylor argued against coercion,
and said that manufactures were depen
dent on the South for cotton, and it was
the interest of trade thai, if separation
took place, it should be peaceable.
Mr. Sickles asked if he did not consi
der war already commenced, by the seiz
ure of the mint and other property."
Mr, Taylor replied it was the duty of
Louisiana to protect herself . by taking
possession of the public property.' 'After
further remarks, Mr. Taylor bode fare
well to the House.
Mr. Bouligny made explanation that
he did nat receive official notice of the
passage of the secession ordinance. He
was not elected by the Convention, and
should not be governed by their action.
He was the only member elected as an
American Union man, and by this prin
cipal he should stand forever. Applause
n hen I came here 1 toox the oath to
maintain the Constitution of the U States.
Does not that mean the Union of the
States ? Whenever my immediate con
stituents instruct me to withdraw from
this' House, their wishes shall be "com
plied. .Ishull, however, uot only with
draw, but resign. But I shall continue to
be a Union man, and stand under the flag
of the country that gave me birth. Long
continued applause cn the floor and gal
leries. Richmond, Va. Feb. 5.
Very few delegates elected are sub

Washington, Feb. 5.
Mr. Tyler, on taking the Chair over
the peace Congress delivered an address
v. hiclr is eulogised by those who heard it
as highly patriotic and conciliatory. The
proceedings were chiefly confined ta an
expression of thier view?, somewhat con
versational. Chase, of Ohio, expressed
himself as particularly gratified with Ex
President Tvler's speech in the Confer
rence, and assured him as most of the
other .members also did, that they were
willing to go where Virginia led.
The hopes of -union men are strength
ened. Bat little will be done until the
delegations arrive from Massachusetts,
New York and Illinois.
Mr. Kellogg to-day received a
patch from a distinguished Republican
from Springfield stating that he would
be sustained by. many leading republic!
cans of that State in his proposition for
a compromise he has introduced into the
House. The Union raeD, it is generally
understood, have elected a : majority in
the Va. Convention, which is hailed as
a great triumph for peace.
The great speech made to-day by Sen
ator Johnson, is the universal topic of
conversation. His denunciation of se
cessionists was most terrific. He did not
hositate to hold up' as traitors the late
senators who had committed themselves
as leaders in secession and rebellion.

New York, Feb. 6.
A salute of 34 guns was fired to-day in
honor of Virginia.
The steamer Marion from Charleston
arrived to-day. Among the passengers
were G wives of soldiers of Ft. Sumter,
and 17 children. They represent th.s
garrison at Ft Sumter as in excc-ilent
health. The strongest union prevails in
the company, and they looked forward to
an att3ck with confidence in their strengh
and ability to repel an assault. There
are 75 soldiers and 30 laborers, all of
whom are now busy in mounting heavy
columbiads on the ramparts and in the
fortress yard. The majority of the sol
diers are of foreign birth, about half of
these being Irish, and a large number
Germans. The garrison is now supplied
daily with fresh meats and provisions of
all kinds from Charleston, although only
brought in for each day's use. The sup
ply of salted meats and camp rations is
ample enough for a long siege.
No reinforcements had been received
when the Marion left, and from the sta
tement of the Captain, it would appear
that great difficulties would be met in en
tering the harbor at Charleston with re
inforcements or supplies.

The President's message came up.
Mr. Johnson finished his speech.
He contended that a reign of terror ex
isted in the seceding States. He did not
believe that Tennessee was going to be
lashed to the or of South Carolina. He
thought, even if the Tennessee Conven
tion passed such an ordinance, it would
have to take the people out of the Union
at the point of the bayonet. The Union
was not gone. It was still in existence.
But if the old flag was struck to the
ground, he wanted no more glorious win
ding s-heetthan that same flag, no better
grave than to lie with the Union.
Mr. lgfall got the floor.

Mr. Phelps advocated concurrence in

tor the redemption of treasury notes.
Mr. Sherman replied that if this was
agreed to, it would afford no security for
relieving the treasury. He trusted that
the next administration would never come
here with a loan bill in time of peace.
The expenses should never be allowed to
exceed the revenue.
The amendment was rejected, 59

Ex-President Tyler, on taking hii scat
as President cf the Convention yesterday,
made an eloquent address. He said our
ancestors had made a mistake in CQt hav
ing fixed every fifth decade for a call cf
general convention to amend the constitu
tion. Oa the contrary they had made the
difficulties next to fnsurmountable to ac
complish amendments to an instrument
whic1, was perfect forfive millions cf peo
ple, but not wholly so as to thirty millions.
He thought their patriotism wouIJ sur
mount the difficulties, however. If they
would accomplish one triumph in ?dvar.c?.
the triumph over pirty, th3 country,-res
cued from danger, would seed a
shout cf joy and gladness.
At the conclusion cf his remarks, tho
members Cocked around him with word
of congratulation. - ;
Mr. Chase of Ohio assured Mr. Tyler
they were ready to follow where Virginia
led. as she pursued only the path ct vir
tue and honor, and all expressed them
selves as confident of success . and conti
nued prosperity for the Union.

not to recede from the Chicago Platform.

Col. Hayne, instructs him to demand of
the President the surrender cf the fort if
held as a means cf warfare, or its sale
if held a3 property. On this point Mr.
McGrath says: The opinion of the Gov
ernor as to the propriety of the demand
which is contained in the letter with the '
delivery of which you are charged, has
not only been confined 'with the circum
stances with which your mission was in
volved, but is now increased into a con
viction of its necessity. The safety cf
the State requires that the position cf thej
President should be distinctly understood.
The safety of all the seceding States re
quires it as much as ;he ?afe!y of South '
Carolina. If it so that Ft. S-jmter is
held but as. property, then the rights

those rights, the pledge of the State cf S
C you are authorized to give. If Ft S j? ,
ter is net held as property, it ii held as a
military post, and such a p-t within the
this State will rot be tolerated. .If the
President refuses to deliver the fort, you
will communicate that refural without de- .'
lay to the Governor. If the President
shall not be prepared ta give '"you an im-
mediate answer, you may communicate to
him that his answer may be transmitted
within a reasonable time to the Gover
nor at this place.
