Friday, March 29, 1881. We would thank such of our friends ns can furnish us with a copy of yesterday's paper. ' The Senate to-day coufiruicd the follow ing nominations : George Q. Fogg, of New Hampshire, Minis ter Resident to Switzerland. Carl Shurz, of Wisconsin, Minister to Spain, vice Cassias M. Clay, declined. James S. Pike, of Maino, Minister Resident at the Hague.

Lana, Judge for the northern and southern district of Alabama. Edward Jordon, of Ohio, Solicitor of the Treasury. Numerous nominations of postmasters, col lectors, Ac, were confirmed. Among the for mer, John L. Cripps as Postmaster nt Chicago. JJ65- Mr. Clay has declined the Spanish mission, and has been appointed Minister to Russia. Carl Schurz has been appointed Minister to Spain, George G. Fogg, of New Hampshire, Minister to Switzerland, J. S. Pike, (of the N. Y.Tiibune,) Minister to the Hague, and J. S. Harvey, (of lho Philadelphia Kmth American) Minister to Portugal. tQy We suggest to the New York Tribune that they ought not to have given information of the order to land troops at Fort Pickens from the Brooklyn, until the order was known to be safely executed. 6J Tho A". Y. Express says that the Ger mans have received too many offices from Mr. Lincoln, and copies an English article against "foreign influence" in America, to inflame the Native American passions. On the other hand, the JV. Y. Herald thinks that the Germans have been overslaughed, and "compelled to lake the back teat." It will be time enough for tho friends of the Administration to respond, when its opponents can agree upon their accusa tions. t& A correspondent of the N. Y. Tribune, writing from Savannah, under date of March 22, states, that there are now collected and un der drill, in and near that city, about one thou sand men of the "regular army" of the South ern Confederacy, which is destined to talc the place of the volunteer troops now guarding the torts, coast, ic. 83?" During the evening session of tho Vir ginia Convention on Tuesday, a vote was taken upon the proposition to adopt the Montgomery Constitution. The proposition was negatived yeas nine, nays seventy-eight. " It was John C. Rives, of Maryland, and not William C. Rives, of Virginia, who was present at the Union demonstration at Frederick, on Tuesday. John C. is vastly the most important and sensible man of the two, JdSy We learn from Maryland, that numer ous agents from the Confederate States arc at work there, to foment secession. The Grand Trunk Railway Company of Canada has been unable to meet its interest when it fell due ou the stock of the Atlantic and St. Lawrence Company, leased by them. Fort Sumter. Col. Lamou, who return ed hero on Wednesday from Fort Sumter, is understood to coincide with Capt. Fox, as to the impracticability of reinforcing it. Yesterday, the New York Tribune, which has been averse to the surrender of the fort, said: " After the reports of Cnpt. Fox and Col. Lamon, the President would seem to have no alternative but to withdraw Major Anderson." The Seized. It turns out that the cap tured vessel, with supplies for tho fleet off Pen saeola, was a privato vessel, and was seized at Mobile. It is described as a "little sloop," and was carrying supplies on private account. Tho iiolile Register of last Friday says ; " We learn that a vessel called tho Isabella, Captain J. Jones, loaded with supplies for the fleet off Pensaeola, and probably l'ort Pickens, was seized on Wednesday night by the chief and assistants of police, and turned over to Lieutenant Homer, commanding the Conti nentals, who have now charge of her. We tire told that General Bragg telegraphed to the Mayor of the city, informing him of the fact that suppliei were to bo drawn Irom here, which he detired should be prevented, having interdicted the same at Pensaeola hence the seizure." Fort Pickens. The information from va rions points at the South sbos that the con spirators are concentralii g their forces at Fort Pickens. If they attack it, it will be their first attack upon anything which was defensible. A Pixa foa rni tnilM; nllh r-ictt ami Fint ires of tho lit) War In Oregon 11 Juim 11i.ejv This is a very interesting pamphlet of HI pages, written by ona who, from n long resi dence in Oregon, ha Lccomo deeply interest ed in the Indians of that locality, and who is convinced that they h.it o suffered muny and great wrongs nt the hands of tho whites. It is a simple narrative of personal experience, which cannot fail to be interesting to all who feel an interest in the welfare of the much-neglected race of which he treats. FORT PICKENS. Julge Dauglnn m in favor of giving up Fort Pickens, but professes to be in favor of hold ing on to Key Wen and Tortugas. How long ha tviuld remain of this lost opinion, nobody knows, but probably not long after he had per iuaded the Government to give up Fort Pick ens. The distinction which he attempts to make in the two cases, as given in his own words in the Senate on Monday, is ns follows! "It may be supposed, perhaps, that Key West and Tortugas, or Forts Taylor and Jeffer son, as they are called in the War Department, are within the limits of the Confederate States ; but that is entirely a mistake. J. be Uontea ernte Stntcs. being a revolutionary Govern ment, hold whatever they actually occupy, and no more, licvoiuuon lakes Homing uy impii cat. nu : and inasmuch as the Coutederate States havo never been in possession of Key West or Tortugas, it cannot be said that those S laces are within the limits of tho Confederate tates under the revolutionary Government. Besides, thoetvo places are national lortipr-a-tions, built for general defence fortifications in which the commerce of Maine has n thou sand fold more interest than that of Florida. Those are places that we should hold under alt circumstances, whether the cotton States should be restored to us, or whether they shall be permanently separated Irom us. If revolution takes nothing by implication, it has never taken Fort Pickens, which is on an island, from the possession of which the United States have never been ousted. It m as for national objects that the harbor of Pensaeola was acquired iu tho purchase of the Floridas. It has been for national objects that it has been fortified at a vast expense. It is the only naval harbor on the Gulf, and high national policy requires that it should be held. The same reasons apply to it which apply to Key West and Tortugas. It was the doctrine of the Democratic party, that Cuba was so essential to us that we should be justified in making war for its acquisition, if Spain refused to sell it. The Floridas are more essential to us than Cuba ever was ; aud while the morality of seizing what belongs to others may be doubtful, the justice of holding on to what is our own by fair puschase, is not doubtful at all. This question is not to be af fected by the wishes of the handful of people in Florida. It is simply a question, whether Georgia and Alabama and South Carolina have a better right to Florida, than the Uni ted States. Judge Douglas thinks they have, so far at least as Pensaeola is concerned ; but we doubt much if the country will agree with him. NEW YORK TO BE EXCLUDED. If there is any one city which the Confeder ate States will never admit to their sweet em braces, it is the city of New York, and for the plain reason, that to get rid of the overshadow ing commercial supremacy of that city, was one of the leading inducements to the present at tempted disruption of the Union. Upon this point, the Charleston Mercury says : " There is but one solitary stumbling-block in the way of direct trade. A reconstruction of the slave States with any of the Northern, free, importing States, will at once, in onr judgment, strike 'direct trade' to the ground. New York has the track. She has the accumulated cap ital, and she has the custom. Nor can any pos sible efforts at the South divert her trade from her, except through the operation of two dis tinct nationalities. This will do it, ns we havo shown, most effectually. And nothing else will. Any political connection with New York will again bind us,'very vassals in commerce, at the wheels of her triumphal car. Iler rod will again be over us: and, with her accumulate! capital and established business, no power ca.i arrest it. Let us look well to this matter in the future." In his speech at Savannah, on the 22d of March, Mr. 'S ico President Stephens, after pre dicting that the slave States, not yet seceded, must "gravitate" to the Southern Confederacy, proceeds to add: " Looking to the distant future, and, perhaps, not lery distant either, it is not beyond the range of possibility, and even probability, that nil the great States of the Northwest shall grav itate this way, as well as Tennessee, Kentucky, Missouri, Arkansas, Ac. Should they do bo, our doors are wide enough to receive them, but not until they arc ready to nssimilata with us m principle." Mr. Stephens neither predicts nor desires the nccession of tho manufacturing and commercial States of the Northern-Atlantic seaboard, for that would be to reduce the South again to that condition of " vassals in commerce," from which they suppose that they have just escaped. The New York Express, and papers of that stamp, talk of a reconstructed empire, from which fanatical New England is to be excluded. But it is really not fanatical Now England, hut commercial New York, and manufacturing Phil adelphia, which the leaders of the cotton nulli fication desire to exclude. It is pre eminently the city of New York which these leaders havo intended to strike down by their recent move ment, although, strangely enough, there is no other place nt the North where they have so many open sympathizers and supporters. The merchants of New York will, by and by, under stand it. 8Sf In the Senate, on Monday, in n brief interruption of Mr. Douglas, Mr. Clark, of New Hampshire, said : " I believe, if the Senator will allow me, that the propositions that have been made in regard to compromises havo demoralized the Union feeling in the Southern States, and if we had stood on the simple question of Union or dis union iu those States, we should stand better to day than by standing on tho question of compromise or disunion; because, failing to get a compromise, a great many of tho com promise men may become disunionists." These tiro golden words of wisdom, ns cur rent events ure testifying. To hold out tho prospect of impossible compromises, was to encourage delusions, of which tho adiantage was short, while tho recoil of disappointment was certain uud dangerous. Tho Samnnuh Republican of last Monday sajBs " Judging from the several puddles of blood to be met with yesterday morning on sidewalks in different srtets of our city, it would indicate that Saturday night last was one of more des perato debauch among a certain class than is usual in fc'avaimah. Our attention was par ticularly attracted, when passing in front of the Marino Bank, on St. Julian street, by a con siderable! pool of blood, and a trail of the snnio from it round to Oration street, for some distance. We were unable to ascertain tho cuute of it, but think that such iiti'lghtly ap pearances ihoald be accounted for." Kjy The Richmond (Va.) Dispatch najst " If Lincoln should date to insult Virginia ns he has done Missouri. Murilund, uul Ken tucky, let the Apis of Aholitioii he nt onto taU?ht that thn UPniilp hlu lint Otilinittal.miata Abolition postmasters, mail ngeuts, &c, ic, Lhntllil h wnrmrl In lunvn ntwl if llmt- ciT.,... why this ii the season for plucking geese, una what coating requires to be taken from the bird may be transferred to the Wide Awake officials. There is no necessity for using warm tar, as cold does just as well." THE RIGHT TONE. The followiug are the resolutions adopted nt the Frederick (Md.) county meeting of last Tuesday : Jsesolced, That wc see neither in secession nor iu sectional revolution any lawful, appro priate, or adequate, remedy for tho wrongs and injuries which constitute the pretext fur the ac tion of the States which havo dissolved their connection with the U ion. llesolvcd, That we regard the secession of these States not ouly as unconstitutional, but as subversive of all tho principles of orgauized so ciety and government, besides being unfriendly, firecipitate, aud arrogant, as it respects Mary aud and other border States, whose causes of complaint aro so much greater. lUsohed, That we deny that any State has the right to dissolve its connection with the Union tor any cause short of that which would justify revolution; and that revolution is only justifiable when oppression ou tho part of tho Government has dissolved the compact implied between it and the people, and in no case is it justifiable until all constitutional remedies have been exhausted, including the holding of a na tional Convention. llcsohed, That it is with Bentiments, not only of profound regret, but of indignant disapproval, that we witness the persistent efforts winch aro being made to involve Maryland in the" guilt of secession, and, through unauthorized and irre sponsible agencies, to force her out of the Union, to which the hearts of a generous people, such as ours, cling with all the greater devotion, that suicidal and treacherous hands have bee n raised for its destruction. Resolved, That, continuing to revere the Con stitution and the Government established under it by our fathers, we hereby form ourselves into an organization whose sole object shall be the defence of the Union against all its assailants, secret or open, and cordially invite our fellow citizens, without regard to former political as sociations. llesolvcd, That we hereby pledgo to each other "our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor," for the maintenance of tho Union, and our rights under it. Resolved, That nn expression of our confi dence and appreciation of his faithful adher ence to official duty during the present crisis is due, and are hereby tendered, to his Excellen cy the Governor of Maryland. Resolved, That wo respectfully recommend to our fellow citizens of the several counties of tho State, including the city of Baltimore, to unite with us in the appointment of delegates, in such manner as they shall sec fit, to a State Convention, to be held in the city of Baltimore, on Thursday, tho 2d day of May, 1801, for the purpose of perfecting a Union organization throughout this State. EXTRA SESSION OF THE SENATE. Thuisday, March 28, 18C1. Mr. Trumbull introduced a resolution, de claring that, in the opinion of the Senate, the true way to preservo the Union is to maintain its laws ; that the doctrine of anti-coercion is destructive of tho Union, nnd that it is tho duty of tro President of tho United States to en force the laws of the Federal Government in the secediug States as well as any other of the Union. Mr. Trumbull said he offered it as expressive of his views, nnd hoped it would at once be voted upon. Mr. Clingman demanded tho yeas nnd nays. Mr. Sumner moved to go into Executive ses sion. Mr. Hale wanted tho resolution to lie over a Bhort time. Whilo he was a member of tho Senate, he did not feel willing to assume power which his constituency was not entitled to, nor to give the President advice not according with tho rules of tho Senate and Constitution. Mr. Foster wanted to know if dehato was in order. He did not think the Senator had any right to go into a speech upon that subject pending a motion. Mr. Hale said he intended to express his opinion upon the resolution, and it should not pass nor be rejected till he had done so. Mr. Powell ueiired to call up a resolution in troduced a few days since, relutivo to tho dis patches from Maj. Anderson to the War De partment. He thought that as tho President find decided not to publish them, it was due to Maj. Anderson that tho resolution, President's message, and debate thereon, should be printed. Mr. Collamer objected to debate, and de manded tho yeas and nays on the motion to go into Executive session, resulting yeas 25, nays So tho Senate went into Exocutiio session. When the doors were reopened, a committee was appointed to wait on tho President, (Messrs. Baker und Powell,) nnd inform him, if he had no further communication to make, the Senate were ready to adjourn sine die. After the truusactiun of business of little public interest, the Senate adjourned sine die. DEPARTMENTAL. Naval Engineers.

Spinner, the new United States Treasurer, upon inspect ing the bonds nnd securities in trust for the Chickasaws, has discovered that some .of the securities belonging to this trust fund have been withdrawn in whole or in part, and replaced, sometimes by the same, and at other times by other securities. The suspicion it that they were used to speculate with; $60,0CG.CG of Tennessee bonds were so withdrawn on the 31st of January, 1855, and havo never been replaced in kind or by others. The Treasurer has sug gested, in a letter to Secretary Chase, the pro priety of asking Congress to sell these securi ties, place the money accruing from such sales in the national treasury, issue therefor a single Government bond for the amount of the entiro trust, and have the interest on the same for the payment on the annnities provided for an nually in the Indian appropriation bill. Many of the securities aro coupon bonds, and are transferable of delivery, and are therefore sub ject to the danger of being purloined, convert ed, and lost to the fund, or to the Government. To guard against this, Mr. Spinner, the Treas urer, asks permission of the Secretary to stamp on the face of all theso securities the words: " Held by the United States in trust for the Chickasaws."
