The _Mohtopmert _Conveutioh. —The Au-Sista (Geo.) Chronicle is evidently apprehensive at the Montgomery convention may try to do a little too much. It tries to reason itself into the belief that it will only organize itself into a Provisional Government for self defence, bat for fear that it may g# farther, the Chronicle warns delegates that no _Constitution whieh they may frame will be binding on the people. It says farther , that unless they can have less intolerance and vindiotiveness of party spirit, more patriotism and conciliation, less _demagogueism_, more capacity and honesty in the public oounoila, less pandering to the caprices of the hoar, and more nerve to do right, than we have witnessed for the last twenty years, we seriously fear thatunder whatever arrangement, self-government is rapidly drifting to destruction—republican liberty swiftly hastening to its self made grave.

We are muoh obliged to r eoretary Floyd for the foresight he has thus displayed in disarming tho North and equipping the South for this emergency. There is no telling the quantity of arms and munitions whioh were sent South from other Northern arsenalg. There is no doubt but that " every man in the South who oan carry a gun oan now be supplied from private or public sources. The Springfield contribution alone would arm all the militia men of Alabama and Mississippi."

The present state of trade brings about some novel features This market has, at present, an unusual stock of raisins on hand, owing to very large importations, and a comparatively slight demand for _oonsnmption. Consequently, prices have fallen to comparatively lower rates than in Malaga , and a reshipment of the article to Europe is now the result. Several cargoes have already left this port, and a _shjp is now up for Liverpool, at Philadelphia, with 1,800 boxes on board.

The Rescue of Fugitive Slaves. On th_» 28t h nit. Hon. Gko&gb R. Smith, a member of the State Senate from this city, read In that body a bill to prevent the rescue of fugitive slaves, which was referred to a " special committee, and which has since, we believe, after gome unimportant changes, been reported back for further consideration. It aims at providing, by State action, for one of the objects contemplated by Mr. Crittesden in his propositions-for an adjustment of the existing agitation, by making each county or city in which a fugitive slave is rescued liable to the owner for his full " price and value. It also au thorizes the city or county in which such escape occurs to sue any or all the persons engaged in promoting it for the recovery of the valne of the slave, and makes participation in a rescue a misdemeanor, punishable either by solitary confinement at hard labor for a period not exceeding three years, or by a fine not exceeding one thousand dollars, or both, ...

The Voice of Virginia. Fuller returns confirm the predictions of the friends of the Union, and show that the « Old Dominien," the mother of States and of statesmen, has, with wonderful emphasis and rare enthusiasm, decided in favor of the preservation of the Republic, and against the machinations of its enemies. We point to this result with singular gratification. It means more than a Presidential election, because it is the first voice of the first Southern State is support of an unbroken Union. It is the voice, too, of a Commonwealth that never cast an electoral vote save for a Democrat for President, until the last election, when she cast it for the representative of the Constitutional Union party. What will chiefly arrest attention, however, is the manner in which the people have put the seal of condemnation upon those of her Representatives and Senators in Congress who have asserted that she intended to unite her fortunes with Rhktt and _Smjjeli, and Yakcet and _Toombs_.

WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE Letter from " Occasional." [Correspondence of The _Preaa._J WASHureToir, February 5,1861-The singular triangular fight for the election of Mr. Saward'_s successor to the Senate of the United States, in the _Republican Legislative caucus at Albany, on Saturday, excited great interest here, where the same line of division exists among the Republican members of Congress from Hew York as was shown in the Legislature of thai State between the Mends of Megars. Qreeley and Weed. The strength evinced by Mr. Greeley_, in this contest against the combined influences of his opponents, surprised the foes and delighted the friends of that experienced journalist.

Fort Siimpter. The excitement which has long prevailed in the country in rega*d to Fort _Sumpter is constantly k«pt alive by the important rumors which are circulated in reference to its condition, and the probabilities of an attack upon it by the South Carolinians. A few days ago the Washington correspon dent of the New York rimes asserted that it had been secretly reinforced, at night, by troops landed from the Brooklyn while it lay outside of the harbor, in small boats, with muffled oars. In support of this idea, it is contended that the people of Charleston, a short time ago, were much agitated at the sight of a war-steamer cruising off their coast; that small skiffs had been seen near their fortresses which were considered suspicious, and that the delay of the Brooklyn in reaching Pensacola can best bo accounted for by supposing that she first stopped to relieve Major AKnKESOK. But it is to be feared that this statement, however gratifying it would be to the great body of t...
