After some discussion in reference to the mode by which part of yesterday's proceedings got into the columns of one of the Richmond papers-
Resolved, That each member of this Convention should feel himself in honor bound not to disclose any portion of what may occur in secret session, until the injunction of secrecy shall be removed.
Resolved, That the order to go into secret session, bound, and still binds, the honor of each member carefully to keep secret what is said or done in such session.
Resolved, That two door-keepers be sworn, whose duty it shall be to keep the rotunda and stairways clear.
The oath of secrecy was then administered to W. J. Leake, second door-keeper, and J. G. Moss, third door-keeper.
The Sergeant-at-Arms and first door-keeper were previously sworn.
The Chair has received a communication from the Governor, to be laid before the Convention, which the Secretary will read.
The Secretary then read the following reply of the Governor to the requisition for Virginia's quota of troops, made by the President of the United States through the Secretary of War:
EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, RICHMOND, VA., April 16, 1861.
Hon. SIMON CAMERON, Secretary of War:
SIR: I received your telegram of the 15th, the genuineness of which I doubted. Since that time I have received your communication, mailed the same day, in which I am requested to detach from the militia of the State of Virginia "the quota designated in a table," which you append, "to serve as infantry or riflemen for a period of three months, unless sooner discharged."
