_Letter from _Harrisburg. [Correspondence of The Press.]. EABRiSBURa, Feb. 5, J.861. Tbe coarse of the Baltimore Sun newspaper, in misrepresenting every thing that looks to a preservation of tbe Union is condemned here by all parties. In its issue of yesterday it says the commissioners from Pennsylvania to the Washington Convention " are required to demand certain conditions which will not be conceded '' Tbis is false. The commissioners from Pennsylvania are not required to demand any conditions at all. They go entirely untrammelled. Mr. Fipney yesterday amended his resolution introduced on Thursday, so as £0 read as follows: " That the Committee on Basks shall have power to inquire into and investigate the condition of such banks in the Commenwealth as the committee, from _snoh facts as they may have, or such as may ba brought to their knowledge relative to the samemay deem unsafe or dangerous to the public interests; and further to facilitate sucb inquiry, tbe committee shall ...

The Ilight to Blockade, from a Southern Point oi View. [From the New Orleans _Fioarone.] The right of blockade is essentially a military rigbt, and recognized only as a means of crippling and worrying an enemy with whom the blooKading Power is at war—actual war. It is a right wbicb in general can only be resorted to by a recognized Power or State. In other words, " it mast be the act of a belligerent." And in can of blockade of a port of an enemy, to which the commerce of the world finds daily entrance, due notice must be given of such blockade, ana the belligerent rigbt acknowledged, before cargoes can be estopped. Tbe rigbt of foreign nations to entex the port of New Orleans, for example, is guarantied by treaty. The right is absolute so tar as the treaty goes, and tbe Government which conceded it oannot, of itself, withdraw it, unless due notice Is givenand the reasons for so doing are satisfactory. Tbe right wbicb nations exorcise in closing or opening ports for the better a...

Commonwealth Insurance Company. In the absence of asy adequate law or proper department in tbis State, to afford the community evidence of the reliability of our InsBranoe Corporations , it Is gratifying to note that, in some instances at least, an equally trustworthy voucher mas been attained. The Insurance Bureau of the State ef New York requires from companies, sot incorporated by that commonwealth, bat which apply for license to do business in the State, a most searching exhibit (embracing a great multitude of details which oannot be evaded) of all their securities, liabilities, <fcc, demanding a large capital which must not be impaired by any indebt ednets, or even any contingent liability. So foreign office not thoroughly solvent can stand the rigid test. We perceive that the Commonwealth Fire Insurance Company of tbis city has bad its New York license renewed by the State Department, granted npon a thorough investigation into the position of the office on the 31st ...
