In tho Dcmocratio and Union Stato Con

composed of moro than seven hundred
members, an cxcitiDg sccno occurcd upon
tho adoption of tho second resolution, which

Immense sensation followed tho remarks
of tho venerable Chancellor, and the deep
silence that had attended his remarks was
followed by an enthusiastic outburst of
Mr. George, of Orango, said that tho
words they had just heard had gone to

in his heart at this moment that he could

But lie could not ho was unequal to tho
effort, and ho could only appeal to them
as a son of Virginia to adopt that rcsolu
tion with such unanimity that tho voto
would bring joy to tho hearts of all men
who desire to preserve and perpetuate this
Euthusiastio cheers followed thcso re
marks, and tho Convention gavo three
hearty choers for Virginia. When tho
excitement had toinowhat subsided.
Mr. Charles II. Carroll appeared on tho
stand, and tho cnthusiasmof the Conven
tion burst forth anew,
Mr. Carroll said : As ono who boro
tho namo of Charles Carroll, ono of tho
signers of tho Declaration of Indcpen
deuce, could ho stand back at this timo ?
uouiu lie retrain irom raising his voice in
response to tho sentiments to which they
had listened, aud to exhort his fullow-citi
zens to give heed to them, and to save the
country so dear to them all, from the hor
rors of civil war, when all tho ties of an
cestry bound him to tho Union when tho
very National Capitol was built upon the
manor ceded by his own grandfather to
the Government, aud owned for years by
his ancestors ? Ho appealed tohisbrcth
ren of the Convention to avoid, as his
venerable friend had said, the horrors of
civil war. Let them treat Virginia as a
brother let them treat all wen of tho
South as brothers, and rely on it that if
they gavo a hearty expression to their
ffcliugs in this resolution, thoy would ro
tiro from tho Convention with the satisfac
tion of knowing that its harmonious and
patriotic proceedings mav servo to revive
feelings of fraternal regard between the
different sections of tho country, aud bring
us back to tho days when wo could fight
for the old Stars and Stripes in the South
as well as in tho Noith.
As Mr. Carroll concluded Lis remarks,
When tho resolutions wero read de
precating civil war, tho voncrablo Chan
cellor Walworth roso upon tho platform,
and told how, iu his youth, at the thres
hold of his home, he heard the bullets
pattering on doors and casements, aud
saw his companions fall in death at his
side. This was in foreign war; but the
horrors of a fraticidal civil war were
tenfold more terrible.
Judgo Carroll, (of tho family of Charles
Carroll, of Carrollton,) a hale, grey
haired man, asked how could he fight in
this fratricidal war, whose ancestors own
ed the fields on which tho National Capi
tol was built, and who had kindred ilow-
-o - "' 01 tuoso men against
wheni he was called to turn his arms!
Choked by his own emotions , the Judgo
was cumpeuca to aesist, wnon a young
"ial o on ono of tho back benches, and
10 a volco ot UecP Bcnsl'"y told how,
though ho lived in New
York, aud his
destiny was here "ho had a father in
Virginia, an old man like tho voncrablo
, Chancellor, and ho had sisters thero"-
wncu no uroke down with his emotions.
An audience of bearded men listened to
this in tears, aud thero was a moment of
silence It was broken by a oico crying
out: "Ihreo cheers for lrguiia,'' aud
thoy were given with a will.
