The Peace congress. This will be one of the most Important weeks in American history, and upon the nature of the action decided upon before it doses the whole future destiny *f the Kepnblic may depend. The people of Yirginia will virtually determine by the character of the men they select to their State Convention whether they, too, will be precipitated into the Secession revolution, and forced to join their fortunes with the men who are attempting to form a new Southern Confederacy. The delegates from the six revolting States of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Lonisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina will endeavor, at Monteomerv, to form a Provisional Govern ment, which they hope to render a rallying _poini for all the other slaveholding States if an amicable adjustment of the existing difficulties is not soon made.

Farewell of Senator SIid«ll. Senators _Siikeu. and Benjamin, of Louisiana , yesterday took a formal farewell of the United States Senate, in compliance with the act of Secession which has been adopted by their State, mainly through their influence. One of the notable features of the speech of the former is Us announcement that the American flag belongs to the South as well as to the North, and that, therefore, it would be the banner of the Southern Confederacy. The ridiculous anxiety which the dignitaries of South Carolina have displayed m regard to their Palmetto standard, as well as the outlandish devices which have found favor in other seceding States, do not appear to have impressed Mr. _Siidem very favorably, and he considers the stars and stripes decidedly super ior to any of these new inventions. His taste in this respect is undoubtedly correct, and we do sot doubt that be will find many other old established features of the existing Government to be more advantageous tha...

The Virginia .Election. The western and northwestern portions of Virginia hare doubtless elected decided antigecession delegates to the Convention which has been called in that State to determine whether It will join the conspiracy to break up the great Government which its soldiers and statesmen did so much' to establish, or whether it will remain true to the Union. We are rejoiced to learn that among the delegates who have undoubtedly been elected is Hon. Sbbbbaed _CiBHEHs. Bis recent eloquent speech has endeared his name to the patriotic men of every section of the country, and he cannot fail to exercise a most salutary influence in the new bod y of which he has been chosen a member, in spite of the active and bitter opnnsitifln of the Secessionists of his district. In the eastern portion oi Virginia a majority of Secessionists will probably be elected, and the proceedings of the Convention will doubtless be of an exciting and impressive character, whether it contains a major...

The Canadian _jsxcueraeni. While Secession is the order of the day in the United States, a revolutionary feeling appears to be also rapidly growing up in Canada. The immediate pretest for it is the interference by the English Courts with the celebrated Anderson fugitive-slave and murder case. The Br itish subjects on our northern border have no objection to legal proceedings designed to prevent the rendition of the fugitive in themselves—indeed, they are more disposed to approve of and sustain than to opnose them. Bnt they are becoming enraged at the theory of jurisprudence wnicn _transiera, in a summary way, to the mother country the trial of subjects that, by existing laws, are placed under the control of their own judges; because a precedent is thus set for almost any invasion of their privileges of self-government which may be deemed expedient and desirable hereafter. Besides, the example of the Gulf States has not been without Its influence upon them; and the vague theories...

ABCH8TBBK THSATEB—Last night a very crowded house greeted Philadelphia's speoial favorite, Mrs.7D. P. Bowers, in her celebrated oharaoterof Julia, in Snowies' beautiful play of " TheHanohbaob." We were much pleased with the play, and,on the whole, we can express our confident belief that, after baying seen the acting of Mrs. Bowers , Mre. John Prow, _Messra. Wheatley and Clarke, (the latter in the farce,) that no one could have left the house last night with other sentiments than those of pleasure. Mrs. Bowers appears this evening as Camille, and we strongly _reaommend to those who were not present to avail themselves of the opportunity to witness _tbie performance. Last night, at the Walnut-street Theatre, a large audience greeted Mr. J. E. Murdoch in big celebrated character of Jack Rover, in the admirable comedy of " Wild Oats," and as far as the aoting went, we have rarely seen a dramatic representation which save as so much pleasure.
