8E§? f nss-MONDAY , FEBRUARY 11. 1861. The Southern Confederacy. The movements in the Montgomery Convention for the formation of a Southern Confederacy are conducted with a rapidity,-wh!cb furnish a somewhat striking contrast to the delay at Washington, in agreeing upon a plan of reconciliation and adjustment. The fireeaters seem to be inspired with all the energy of despeiaiion, and to urge on their revolutionary movements with a degree of celerity almost unexampled in political history; while at the National Capitol such a diversity of feelings and interests exists, and so many conflicting opinions have to be harmonized before any definite action can be decided upon, that delay seems to be unavoidable.

Mostqomibt, Ala., Feb. 8.—The Congress was in secret session for four hours, and will meet again to-night. The result will probably be made known during the night or to-morrow. Tbe puWio session lasted only half an hotu1 , and was consumed in prayer and some routine business. General _Henningsen is here. Montgomeby, Feb. 9.—The Congress last sight, is secret session, unanimously agreed on the Constitution and the creation of a Provisional Government. A strong and vigorous Government will go into immediate operation, with full powers and ample funds. No proposition for compromise or _reeonstruotion will be entertained. The Congress will remain in session to make all the necessary laws. Mont&ombbt, Feb. 9.—This has been the most important day in the session of the Convention.

Public Amusements* It i> to be presumed that _theatrical managers ought to know their own business better than other people. Yet we must think it ill-advised to have '* Jane Shore" and " The Stranger " performed on Saturday evening, respectively at the theatres in Arch street and Walnut street—as if, in fact, there was a gentle rivalry as to which should present the public with the mo8t unattractive piece Home's tragedy of " Jane Shore" is a dull, unpleasant, almost _indelioate play, and for a modest woman to represent its heroine must be a mental •trial Indeed. We wonder why Mrs. Bowers plays such an unpleasant, lachrymose, dull character as this. It Ib quite below her ability and standing. On the other hand, Eotzebne's '' Stranger " is a sickly piece of bad sentimentality. Miss Coshman, a lady whose years must be close on the half hundred, and who never was good-looking, made so much of the character—despite these drawbacks—that it really became a curious and interestin...

.Letter from " Kappa. " [Correspondence of The Frets.] _Wabhihgtoh, Feb. 10,1861. The capture of New York vessels in Georgia by order of the Governor of that State, can only be regarded as an act of _madness by all sensible and rational people North and South. The fact is that the Secession leaders are compelled to try everything, by aggression and violation of all laws of _juBf.ioe and reason, to induce the United States to "coerce" them—i. e., to punish them like naughty boys for their puerile and nonsensical behavior The disunion fires are nearly extinguished; the excitement, artificial and theatrical as it was, is dying oat, and, if nothing _newj happens, Secession will be dead before it i« even oaptized. Playing soldiers for a few days, with plenty to drink and to eat, ia agreeable, but to do St for six, eight, or ten weeks, neglect one's own affairs, let wife and children starve, is quite anotoer matter. To talk of a Southern Republic, if Uncle Sam protects us, maintains a...

A Bold Game. The Secessionists in Georgia appear to be playing a bold and desperate game. Not satisfied with insulting and shamefully abusing ft British shipmaster, and, according to some reports, the British consul at Savannah, they have seized upon five New York vessels, quietly loading in their harbor; by way of retaliation lor the perfectly legal and- justifiable seizure, by the Metropolitan police, of arms intended lor their use. The danger of such infamous, rash, and reckless proceedings is so apparent, that they look rather like the acts of madmen than of rational beings. If they are persisted in a collision will be inevitable—not only with our own Government, but with that of Great Britain.
