With deep sorrow, and the most sad forebodings for her future, we are forced to announce that our sister State Tennessee has resolv ed not to call even a Convention of Tier people in the present crisis.

Thousands npon thousnnds of her -people, and wc speak with no disre spect of the intelligence of the State, did not and could not know whether "there was a necessity for calling a Convention or not- In this paragraph is seen the spiril of the secession movement.

On the first evening after his return home, he ordered the nurse to assemble the children in the parlor, which she did, not suspecting his murderous intentions. As soon as the nurse had left the room, he ap proached the cradle in which lay his youngest child, an infant, nine months 'old, and cut his throat from ear to ear. The nurse ran to tell Mrs. English who was in the garden, who entered the parlor just as he had ent the throat of the third child, and was in the act aof cutting his own. Rushing forward, she seized him by the arm, and cast ing a woeful look at the bleeding and mangled forms of his children, de manded his reason for killing them. He gently pushed her away, saying at the time it was all for the liost. Be fore Bho could get to him again he made a cut at his throat, completely "severing the jugular vein, and falling into a chair gave way by degrees and fell dead upon the floor, surrounded by the bleeding forms of his innocent children. .

Tha Texas BnrradT-A Xhiamsu Traitor It seems that Twigg's traitorous conduct in surrendering tlie Government property in Tex as, was based on private revenge against the Government for supplanting him, in the ap pointment of Col.

Tlie whole number of enlisted troops under Twiggs' command in Texas was 2,900, and they were scattered about for -the most part, over a frontier of fifteen hundred miles.

The True Btate of the Rebellion. Tlie Charleston corrcsiondeiit of tlie Xew York Kvctiim Post, in bis last letter, speaks of the Ecncral impression at the North as to the true state of tlie rebellion, the feeling be- j ing expressed by the following heads : . I 1. That South Carolina repents her precip- j ituuey, and is heartily sick of secession. j 2. That she will not attack h ort Sumter, in tho event of her failing to obtain it by diplo macy and negotiation. 3. That she has played a game of brag, hitherto unluckily successful, but may finally be induced or compelled (to use as a suggestive vulgarism,) to back dawn, to recede from her position, to recognize Lincoln and re-enter the Union. 4. That the other seceded States will not stand by tier. The writer then takes np these heads aud armies their fallacy. I le says South Carolina lias so long contemplatcdthis step that it cannot termed "precipitate." As far back as 1854, it was freely talked of as an "experiment," by wealthy and influential meu in Alabama, Mis siesiittti allt' Louisiana. As to being sick of secession, the community has gone too lur to retreat. It has risked all iniad to risk , and must go forward. It has everything to gain and nothing to lose, and hence, whether sick of secession or not, will go on. The troops are for assaulting Fort Sumter ut once, but the Governor and more intelligent classes of revolutionists still cling to the hope that it may be obtained by ncgotation. The opinion is expressed that the Fort will be at tacked as soon as the floating battery is com pleted. As to the third proposition, it is said that South Carolina may return to the Union after many years of bitter experience, but not till then. The other States will stand by her. Such are the opinions of a Charlestonian. AVhat Tkxar LnsKS. Tlie ingratitude of Texas seems likely to prove a very costly lux ury to her. Her sc-cession arrests the passage of the bill in Congress for a mounted regiment to protect her frontier, it deprives her of the postal service which has been performed for her at the yearly expense of half a million of dollars above the receipts, and it cuts her off from the thirty six millions of dollars which Congress has been determined to appropriate for the construction of a railroad throughout her whole length of seven or eight hundred miles to connect her with the Pacific States and the Pacific ocean. She has acted under the influence of atrocious misapprehensions and insane counsels, aud her long day of bit ter regret is not far off. LouKvdle Journal. A Sixori.AR Case is Geokoia. Since the secession of Georgia, one of the prisoners in that State, confined for nn offence against tho General Government, has applied for a release, on the ground that secession had severed the ties of judicial jurisdiction. The decision of the court is elaborate, and", while it admits the fact of secession, refuses the application, on thu ground that Georgia, notwithstanding her di!- parturc from the Confederacy, had assumed its commercial and judicial responsibilities.

We ?linuld not have deemed it necessary to say anythi ng furtlicr on the subject of electing Post Masters, but for the above paragraph copied from the Standard of yesterday. We said nothing of the kind indicated, though we now sny we donbt very much whether an elec tion participated in and controlled by Demo crats would have any effect in determining the decision nnr indeed do we believe any elec tion would be decisive unless 'confined exclu sively to H-publ'ican voters witliin tlie deliv ery limits of tlie office, anil assented to by all candidal ft as the mode by which their con flicting claims slion'd be settled. This would of course dispose of all applicants but one, and if a suitable person for tlie post be would doubtless secure the appointment. These elections (in all cases except the one referred I ti lust kpcL' restrirtwl to Ifcnublicnn voters have been, or are to be held, in a number of the county towns of our State. In some eases all the candidates seem to have acquiesced and joined in the request that the election should helj;n otl.org a portion of them ' refused to enter into the arrangement, preferring to select their own mode of making their appli- cation. This was tlie case in Springfield and ll.g IU mill lill Wit HIIWIgMIIVII. many of those most interested in the office disapproved of that mode of determining the matter and refused to take part in the election. In Mt. Yemen, among some ten to a dozen candidates, the successful one received less than 200 votes out of about 1000 cast. In Springfield twelve candidates were voted for, 9.14 votes cast, and the successful gentleman received 309. We are at a loss to know what better any given number of votes would be than the same number of names to a peti tion or endorsement, except to dispose of con flicting claims. Indeed names to;a petition or endorsement would have a manifest advantage over votes, fur it would show who the signers were, and some estimate could be formed as to the extent of their interest in the adminis tration of the office, which mere votes would r -l . 1 - . 11" I ! 1.T. iau io imiicaie. c navu i.u smuus uiip.uuu to expressing a preference for Post Master by ballot, where the election is generally as- scuted to, properly restricted, ami approved j,,, ut would devolve npon him, and not be acccptablc to the great mass of those doing business at the office.

Wc certainly never lieard it claimed that that por tion of "the people' who voted the Dcmocrat- tic ticket should have a voice in the matter, ., ..i l l t..!l,.-1 nf even wLcn elections have been talked of or resorted to. We have no disposition to de prive our Democratic brethren of their legit imate riglits, but to designate Republican Post Masters certainly is not one of them, It is the duty of those having appointments to make 10 bestow them upon honest nnd competent persons, and such as will not be ob noxious to those who are to have official inter course with tliem. It is not likely the Presi dent or Departments will act otherwise. J liey arc to be held responsible for the charncter of their appointments, and before making them will doubtless satisfy themselves of the fitness of the applicant for the plaoe applied for of the evidence presented, it will be for them alone to judge. Mr. Seward is to be tlie leading member of the Cabinet the i Premier and what his views are relative to j a person having appointments to make, for I which he alone i responsible, permitting others 1 to designate the person to be appoitnted, may be arathered from the following extract. It would not be surprising if Mr. Lincoln should be found to entertain similar views. The ex tract is from a letter written in 1839, when Mr. Seward was Governor of New York, iu reply to a request that he would make an ap pointment at the suggestion of a county con vention of the nnrtv to which he belonged. It may be found on page 569, vol. 2 of Works of Wm. H. Seward, Kdited by Geo. K Baker, aud reads thus "With the views I now entertain of my du ties and responsibilities as a magistrate, act ing for the benefit of the whole people, could not recognize the recommendation of such a bodv, as entitled to any decisive weight Any other course would be only to surrender to county conventions the power confided to me ; and there can be no sufficient motive for such a dereliction of duty. I seek and am willing to receive information and advice from any and all parties, and any and all men, in relation to any question upon which I shall be called to net. But I do not deem m mv IHirtant or desirable that the executive de partment should lie released from any of the responsibilities devolved upon it, by the con stitution and laws."

The Georgia authorities have again resorted to robbery having a few days since Beized several New York vessels lying at Savannah. The pretext is the reported seizure by the au thorities of New York city of a quantity of arms and ammunition designed for ths use o' the Georgia traitors in operating against the general government. Mr. Lincoln reached Washington early last Saturday morning, instead of in the afternoon as originally designed. The reason of the change was intelligence furnished him at Phil adelnhia of a well matured plot on the part of the rowdies for which -Baltimore is so noto rious to insult if not to assassinate him during his passage through that city from one depot to the other. The information reached him in so direct a shape and from such reeponsi ble sources, that there was every reason for believinsr in the reality of the danger, and in compliance with the urgent solicitations of Gen. Scott, the Secretary of War, Senator Seward, and the friends who were traveling with him, Mr. Lincoln determined to foil the the conspirators by going through the city in advance of the tha time publicly annonncad . Mr, Buchanan, when passing through tue city four vear ago on his way to Washington to be inaugurated, was grossly insulted, and con sidering the li"ht in which Mr. Lincoln is viewed by most of the Baltimore roughs, it would cot be snrprsing if they, meditated a disturbance, which even if trifling iu the com mencement might have ended in a most seri ous manner. The Baltimore American, the mos tinfleential paper of that city, in its issue of Saturday evening, 'hus rofers to the affair : "The. rirv vaitiiir fcelinr excited bv Mr. Im- coln s quiet passage tlirongli Balimore wa one of relief and of gratification, though ess pressions of disappointed curiosity were ire quently lieard. Tlie injudicious determina ilitical friends of tlie Presi dent elect in thi city, to mark his arrival with a public demonstration had excited a spirit ot stern opposition, which it was feared would manifest itself in acts which, though designed directly to rebuke tlie ill-advised zcafof the parties reftrred to,' might yet have lcen mis construed into a personal affront to the Presi dent elect, and so have reflected discreditable upon tlie good repute of Baltimore. The ac tion, therefore, ol Mr. Lincoln, in i'isappiont ir.i' alike the mirnoses of his political friends and the public curiosity, was a simple and practical avoidance ol what might Have beeu n irreKiim of disorder and of mortification to all interested in tlie preservation of the good name of our city. It is getting to be too late to speculate on tlie probable policy Mr. Lincoln will pursue on taking charge of public affairs in the pres ent anomalous condition of the country. He will speak for himself, through his inaugural, on Monday next. That his lina of policy will meet the approbation of all, is not to be ex pected ; that it will be such as will check re bellion, produce a return of the fraternal feel ings which formerly existed between the various sections of the confederacy, maintain the integrity of tin country and ut the same time do no injustice to any siction, is devoutly to be hoped. Tlie difficulties by which he is surrounded, all will appreciate ami by just and honest men his actions will be judged in view of t lie magnitude of those difficulties. Through imbecility and want of proper action on the part of his predecessor, he will find the country in a deplorable condition it is like a patient who is turned over to the physician with the hope and expectation that his skill can save him after he has been reduced to the very verge of death by a disease wliich if prop erly treated in the start could have been easily checked ai;d prevented from becoming deep- seated and filarining. There is a b ire possi bility that the patient may be saved, but the chances are clearly against it. So with the Union there is a possibility tluit it may yet lie saved, but the chances are d-'cidedly the other way. Mr. Lincoln did not got charge of (he patient in time to be held responsible for hit death, should it unfortunately occur ; though 'f lie succeeds in saving him. his superior skill uwt be universally conceded. Tliere are still those omotig the capitalists of the country who have faith in the stability of the government. The loan for . eight mill ions, recently advertised,., has been" taken on terms unexpectedly favorable. The Southern and Eastern parts of Akansas have gone secession strongly, and notwith standing the heavy Union majority in the North and West, the result of the election is doubtful. " I'nmmatitcatl -j Celebrating the Anniversary of the Birth Say of Soldier of 1812. On tlie evening of the 22d inst. the people of Stratford and vicinity called ut thu residence of Mr. Fktkr Pbacl, for the purxiseof celebra ting the birthday of his f.ithrr, who is now 7S years old. and was in the war of 1812.

About 9 o'clock the company were formed in a procession by Sir.

On the biscuit we detected the unmistakeable sweetness ot the butter of Mrs. Jamison's man ufacture, on which she has so often taken the premium nt our county fairs, and in more than one respect did we detect traces of her nnrival ed cookery. During the evening we had an opportunity of conversing with the Old Sol dier and alluded to our present political trou bles; at once the old man seemed to forget his age nnd wiid, I was once called oi:t to de fend my country and I went, and I would now go were 1 called upon to do so." Although he is n hard-shell democrat he said he would con sider it an bono r to spend the few remaining days he may le spared in righting for the Stars and Stripes. While talking of war the old man put on quite n martial air. On one sub ject we could not agree, ho charges the great est snare of our troubles uxn the llepii hlican party. He fails of drawing the line of distinc tion between the Abolition party nnd the true Republican party.

GUEST. The Augusta (Ga.) Chronicle of January 2Gth has a long editorial npon the eompanv ative merits of monarchical and republican Governments in America. It gives a most flattering picture of the stability, prosperity and success of constitutional monarchy in Brazil nnd in Canada, which it contrasts with the miserable condition of Mexico, Peru, Buenos Ayres, &c, and warns its readers to profit by the lessonB of experience. Our own republican Government, it suys, "has failed midway in its trial, and with it have nearly vanished the hopes of those philanthropists who, believing in man's capacity for self-government, believed, therefore, in spite of so many failures, in the practicability of a re public." "If this Government goes down," asks the editor, "what shall be its substitute ?

The celebration of the 22d, by the students of the O. W. University, was a very credita ble affair, and imminently worthy of the occa sion. The day was given by the Faculties in each of our colleges, as a holiday, and was richly enjoyed by all ; though there were no public exercises till 7 o'clock in the evening. But long before the appointed time, Templar Hall was literally crowded with an intelligent audience of ladies and gentlemen, so that many went away unable to gain admission. The decoration of the Hall was really neat and expressive. Above and behind the plat form, was a design wrought On canvass, can vass, consisting of a large lithograph or Wash ington ; surrounded by a heavy circular wreath of evergreen, in which were inserted thirteen stars. Surrounding this were tlie evergreen word3 "Liberty and Unhm," and on each side of the canvass hung the American flag. By previous arrangement, t ach ot the five college classes had elected one speaker to rep resent them, by responding to appropriate toasts. After which Hon. Mr. Garfield, of the State Seuate was to deliver an address. The speakers of the several classes were in the order of the evening as follows: Mr. Mr. Murry of the Preparatory class; Porter of tha Freshman class Mr Thurnian of the Sophinore; Mr. Taylor of the Junior; and Mr. flail from the Senior. And we do these gentlemen but justice, which a detailed report of the matter and manucr of their respective responses would only highten, by saving tliat they were eminently happy in their efforts. Between each of the speeches, which were about ten minutes in length, the audience was favored with appropriate national airs, by the band, under the charge of Mr. M. D. Van Home. Next the chairman Mr. Crow introduced Mr. Garfield to the house, who was received with applause. His address, which occupied about a half hour, was one of rare propriety and perfection. He was happy to mingle once more among students, and revive the bright memories of college scenes and duys. The several speakers, called his mind back to the times, when he belonged to their resjiec tive classes, he felt as if he could almost pick out the members of the several classes from the very acquaintances he had with their res pective studies aud habits. He cautioned them ugaiii3t superficial efforts, did not be lieve in the doctrine of acting from the "spur of the moment," for he had found that mo ments arc usually without spurs. Eminence, and success, in college, ar rewards to the student of close application to his books. Waiting for something to turn up, that would make great men of us, he deprcatcd as ruinous. Make yourselves, shape your own destiny, was his doctrine, and have some ultimate object or end in view, and niuko everything bend to its attainment. Taming to national trouble, lie lamented the severed condition of our once united sis terhood of States; and thought that corrupt polliicians were the main cause of our discord, and that if they could be cleared out of the way, and the great national heart beat once true a id free, the stales would nil unite in harmony. He paid high tribute to the mem ories of Jackson, Clay and Washington; and remarked how signally slow, were the respect ive states in which their sacred ashes rested to join iu mad secession. Washington would do well for a pattern to us, as students, citi zens, and for the nation. Throughout the speech was a model one, as was manifest from the frequent and spirited applause with which it was received. By all classes ami parties the exercises were spoken highly of and we think it not too much to :iy that the students have in this celebration fully ordained the disgrace of the performance last year. . .. l-'ttr the Cazollc. Kansas Meeting: in Kingston. At a meeting of the citizens or Kingston township on the 17th inst., in the Presbyte rian church or Kingston, a society was formed to solicit and procure aid for the sufferers in Kansas.. A committee of four were appoint ed to canvass the township and vicinity for donations, which committee consisted of Messrs John Potter, John MeCauimon, Geo. V. Emerson and James G. Eadie. Friday the 22d inst., at 2 o'clock was appointed for a general Kansas meeting, and ui which time and place the committee was to report their progress and success. Feb. 2'2d The society met according to adjournment, which meeting plainly showed the feelings of the ladies and gentlemen iu times of distress and want, and that humanity and benevolence had not altogether forsaken old Kingston. The meeting was organized by calling Hak vkv Heasi.ktt to the chair, and D. Max wki.i. Secretary. The committee was called on to report, which showed a cash collection of 693, iu which ladies and gentlemen joined hand in hand douating for the sufferers in Kansas, and besides this the ladies came in with their tender feelings and sympathy, with their loads of clothing and garden seeds for the naked and destitute in that region. A committee of three ladies, Mrs. Emerson, Mrs. McCaniinon and Mrs. Haslett, were ap pointed to value the clothing, and reported twenty-one dollars and forty cents worth, which was arranged and boxed for transportation.

Adjourned sine die. D: Maxwell, Scc'ry. Kings'on, Feb. 22,1801. Soldier Zife at Charleston. The Washington Republic makes abstracts from two letters, writ" en by soldiers nt Charleston, to their friends in the interior of the State of South Carolina. One is dated, "First Hegimcnt, South Carolina Volunteers, Sullivan's Island. Charleston. S. C, Jan. 26, 1801 ," fr.un which we quote u follows : "My dear mother, I tell yon niy teeth are (juite worn out eating old sen -crackers and bread, that has been baked about a year, and old, tongh beef, about twenty or thirty years old, and my hips have got great big corns on them. Wc have to sleep on the floor nnd cover with our blankets, and have to drink water that has got wiggle-tails in it as big as my finger." The other is from a man who writes an ele gant hand, addressed to his wife, in the inte rior of the Slate. From some direction in it in regnrd to farming operations, stock, ic., it would Beem that he is a man of some sub stonce, as well as intelligence. He soys : "Sunday is not known here, the head men make no distinction. We are held here worse than negroes, our liberty has been taken away, and we are not allowed to even visit out of the lines without a written pass from three persons, and they are crabbed, and seem to look upon us us negroes. Our fare is badly cooked, and we suffer many hardships. I hope I may live out my six months, then you may find me, always after, avoiding tho error of binding myself to serve under a despotic tyranny." This letter closes with the following words : "Keep the little dear ones reminded of me, and do not let them forget their father. Your affectionate husband," &e. Harms BURow, Feb. 26. A private dispatch from Washington confirms tho report that John Bell will have a seat in Lincoln's Cabi net. Washington News. Washington, Feb. 24. The great event of to-day (Saturday) was the arrival ot the President elect. This oc enrred by a most unexpected coup de etat at six o'clock in the morning, instead of 4 i in the afternoon, as was previously arranged. Mr. Lincoln was driven np to Willard's Ho tel shortly after daylight, accompanied by two friends only. Gov., Seward was waiting for him, having been pacing the hall of the hotel some time previous, greatly to the astonish ment of the few stirring at that early hour. When the rumor of Lincoln's actual arrival ten hours in advance of time, without any demonstration, spread over Washington, the public bewilderment was complete. At first the news was not believed, but an inspection or the register at Willard's Hotel, where "A. Lincoln, Illinois," was palpably written down, satisfied the most skeptical. Then followed the wildest confusion of rumors, which flew innumerable over the city. - Indefinite rumors are afloat concerning war like despatches said to have been received by the Government from the South. These cause much excitement and many inqniries, but they cannot be traced to any reliable source. Tliere certainly had been no Cabinet meet ing to-day, to consider such despatches as cir culated in connection with other reports. Mr. Lincoln e rapid passage through Balti more has been comlem ned here by some who do not know the facts, which are these : A set of unscrupulous political knaves in Balti more, who had determined to turn Mr. Lin coln's visit tliere to their own account, arrang ed for a procession from the depot to his ho tel. T Protection was asked by these rowdies of Marshal Kane, who protested against such a proceeding. He said Mr. Lincoln would be treated with all respect due him personally and his official position, but so obnoxious were the parties proposing the demonstration, that he could not insure the same respect to them. If thev were determined to brave it it might result in some dignity being offered which would mortifyiug to the President elect, and disgrace the citv of Baltimore. . . Finding tliat these men were fixed in their purpose to make Mr. L."s visit subserve their purposes, the latter was advised by telegraph to pass on to Washington without stopping, which he did. This advice came from gentlemen who had tlie e-ood name of Baltimore at heart. These advices from Baltimore had been anticipated by a special messenger sent thence to meet Mr. Lincoln at Philadelphia, with despatclies from Gen. Scctt and the War Department urginsr him to come through Baltimore unex pectedly, as they had specific information of hostile purposes against him there, m relation to which they could not be mistaken. 1 hi: information was obtained through official se cret agents. Postmaster General King has written a let ter to Mr. Jenkins, the representative of the Kanawha (Virginia) district, in reply to Jen kin's demand to know why the Department removed the route agent between Parkers burg and Graftou; The following is the ma terial point of the letter, showing the ground firmly occupied by the Postmaster General toward secession : "I have to inform you that Mr. West wa? removed for leaving Ins route w tlmut permis sion from the department, and actively engag ib in a movement, the avowed object ff which is to induce the withdrawal of Virginia from tlie Union. In other words, he is dis charged for undertaking to destroy the gov ernment from whose treasury he was drawing the means of daily subsistence, and whose con stitution he had solemnly sworn to support." It is- thought that King will undoubtedly be continued in office under the new Admin istration, as assistant .Post Master General. The President has signed the Bill appropria ting twelve hundred thousand dollars for building seven war steamers. Arrangements for Lincoln's inauguration are unusually complete, owing to the efficien cy and foresight, of the Committee having charge. A.11 apprehensions of trouble con nected with it arc now dismissed. Security and convenience have been consulted and the public will have an opportunity to witness the whole ceremony. Vice President Hamlin will lie inaugurated iu the Senate Chamber, and President Lincoln immediately after, on a platform projecting from the east front of the Capital. Chief Jus tice Taney will administer the oath of office to Lincoln. A telegram to-day, announcing the arrival of President Jcflerson Davis at Charleston, startled Mr. Buchanan, but John Tyler says the mission of Davis is to prevent u possible attack upon Fort Sumter. All opinions and Southern authorities her.-, converge in the idea that Lincoln's inaugural will be pacific, and that no coercion will be at tempted if the forts are not attacked, nor will other Southern States secede. If otherwise, (that is, if there should be coercion.) both events will be immediately precipitated. Washington, Feb. 2."i. Congress had its real sensation to-day. At ten minutes past 3 o'clock this afternoon, while the Senators were whiling a tedious debate on the appropriation bill, the door of the main entrance of the Chamber swung carelessly open, and who should enter but Mr. Seward and the President elect. The Senators started to their feet ; the crowds in tli3 galleries instantly re cognized Mr. Lincoln, and a general sensation pervaded the Chamber. A similar scene took place when Mr. Lin coln entered the House. The Ucpublican members flocked around hiin, aud there was quite a busy scene of shaking hands. Lincoln still holds private conferences on all sides, listens attentively to all, but is noncom mittal yet to all. Among those who called on the President elect to-day were Buchanan, Breckinridge, Cuss, Senator Powell and Gen. Scott.' Lin coln according to custom, called upon the Judges of the Supreme Court. It is authoritatively stated by Baltimore resi dents, that it had been determined to lynch the Committee of Baltimore Republicans, had they attempted to escort Lincoln through the city. As it was, Mrs. Lincoln was grossly insulted by rowdies around her carriage. A telegram received from Texas by a South ern Sc.iutor, says the Texas forts ate all in possession of Commissioners appointed by the Convention, lien. Twiggs surrendered them on demand. I he troops were. allowed to march to the coast with side arms.' Three hundred thousand dollars worth of army sup plies were taken. The War Department has dispatches corroborating this. Gen. Twiggs advised the Department a week since that he would do this. Holt made an arrangemcut to supercede him but too late. The Senate to-day passed the bill authori zing the Administration to discontinue the mails in the States in which any obstructions are made. This same bill passed the House, anil was intended to apply to tho seceded Stales, but the Senate Iiiib amended it so that its effects will be general. Mr. Hemphill of lexus offered an amendment, which was, how ever, voted down. The Cabinet had a Session last night, on dis patches received from Fort Pickens, as well as on unofficial information in relation to military movements at Charleston. It is understood that Jeff. Davis advises peace for the present. Tho War Department on Saturday received dispatches from Major Anderson, dated that week, but they make no mention of his illness. A splendid spun of horses have arrived here to be presented to Mr. Lincoln. Tho city is crowded with strangers. All the trains coining in are overloaded, ond by the middle of this week the influx Will lie still greater. The pressure relative to the Cabinet is so great that it is alleged that Mr. Lincoln will retain, for a month or so, Messrs. Dix and Holt. . There is much excitement on the sub ject to-night. Washington, Feb. 26. Dame Rumor has her whole thousand tongues now in active employment with refer ence to the Cabinet appointments. Seward and Trumbull visited Mr. Lincoln to-day, and I learn from authority sufficiently reliable, that no changes will be mode, Lin coln having finally decided on Seward for Sec retary of State, and Bates for either Attorney General or Secretary of the Interior. Came ron, therefore, is set down by many for the Treasury, and Smith of Indiana for the War department. In Republican circles, opinion generally prevails that these appointments will be made. Ltiorts are being made to con ciliate the discordant elements and restore harmony. Feb. 27. -Last night ex-beuator Bell of Tenn., Judge Douglas, Mr. Guthrie, Mr. Rives, Gov. Hicks and others, urgently appealed to Mr. Lincoln to interpose for a settlement Their interview continued several hours. Tho Commissioners from the Southern Confederacy are expected to arrive here be fore the close of the week. They are accre dited to the incoming Administration, and pending their efforts to negotiate, nothing will be done caclulated to disturb the public peace. The select committee of five on the Presi dent's course is receiving the report of the commissioners from South Carolina to-day. The majority report is signed by Messrs. Dawes, Howard and Reynolds. The commit tee regard the mission itself, as well as the manner in which it was treated by the Presi dent, as among the most remarkable events of the cxtrordinary times in wliich we live. The Committee cannot perceive on what principle the President assumed to entertain or hold official communication with the repre sentatives of South Carolina, for it seems obvi ous enough that, under the principles announc ed in his annual message, the commissioners could be regurded in no other light than as engaged in a revolutionary effort to subvert the government. And it would have been the plain duty of the executive to enforce the laws against any individuals known or sus pected of complicity in any movement of a treasennble character. They fail to see nny circumstances justifying tlie President in entertaining diplomatic in tercourse with South Carolina, except on the assumption that South Carolina was an inde pendent power, and the President by according them an official reply, involved, to some ex tent, a recognition of the assumed positiou of the rcbllious State. A carriage from citizens of New York, in tended 03 a present to.Mr. Lincoln, has been received. That, and a span of horses already here, will be given him in a few days after in auguration. Some time since Secretary Holt addressed a letter to the Governor of Louisiana, demand ing the restoration of commissary and other stores of the United States seized nt New Or leans. His august excellency did not conde scend to answer, but returned a letter, stating that Mr. Holt's letter is lnckiug in deference to the conventionalities of official intercourse, and that if properly addressed, he-will give any information which is desired in relation to any property lately belonging to the Fed eral Government. The Senate to- day passed bills for organi zing the territories of Nevada and Daeotuh and also concurred iu the House amendment of the Colorado bill, thus placing three terri tories in n fair way lor a government. Grow, the Chairman of the Territorial Committee of the House, will press these bills to an early vote. Tliere is one proviso ii. all llH'se terri torial bills, which provides that the legisla tures ofa Territory shall enact no laws calcu lated to impair vested riglits iu property of all kind-. This cff.-etually kills the doctrine of Popular Sovereignty. The House to-day had a long nnd earnest debate on Stanton's Militia Hill, during which much feeling was iiiunifcttcd on the Mibject; bat just at the hour at which it had been pre iously agreed upon a vote should be taken, on motion of Mr. Ci.rwin of Ohio, it was post poned until Thursday, several Republicans vo ting to that effect. This post poneinent is con sidered equivalent to defeat, as it brings it un der the pocket veto of the President. The Oregon War Debt Bill stands a chance for passage, '"he disagreeing votes of the two Houses have been referred to a Commit tee of Conference, who will make most proba bly some compromise. Should this bill pass, it will take at least three millions out of the Treasury, The House liaving made rapid progress in rs business, the chances for an extra session have di'.ninislicd greatly. The new Senators are arriving here prepar atory to taking scats for an extra session. Mitchell of Arkansas is among them. Hon. John Hell arrived here last night, and had a long interview with Mr. Lincoln. He urged the Conference Commissioners to huiry up nnd determine whether any compomise can lie made or not. The New Orleans mint has dishonored the draft of the Government for bullion fund stolen by the authorities of that State. It is believed that Floyd will be here this weok, to make his assumed defense. His hon esty has been indorsed by the Charleston Mercury, which is very suspicious. All the preparations for the inauguration lire about completed. The plat form has been creeled over the eastern portico of the Capi tol, where the inaugural address will be deliv ered, and temporary pas-age ways to the Cap jtol have been nut up for the admission of priviledged persons. Tlie inauguration ball-room i neatly ready, but there is not a great demand for tickets us yet. Northern boys in the secession army. The Charleston correspondent of the New York Times writes: I saw in Broad street, this afternoon a sad spectacle, and as the individual has a North ern home, I must perforce allude to it. The young man, or man boy, of 19, was parading in full epaulets, and an outfit representing some $100, made for him by a leading tailor in Broadway, New York. lie had just ar rived here, the 'avant courier of a party of thirty-six, who intend to steal away one by one from their Northern firesides, nnd fight t the death against the flag on which they have been nursed. The same writer denies that the obstruc tions at the mouth of Charleston harbor have been removed. The Charleston CrsTOM House. By the statistics accompanying the last report of the Secretary of tlie Treasury, it nppeors that the custom house at Charleston S. C, has already cost the National Government more than $2, 000,000, although it is still unfinished, and more than 8"00,000 would be required to complete it. This is one of the building which the Secedcrs seized upon at the outset of their movement, nnd the Palmetto flag now waves over it in triumph. A French View of the Southern Con fkhf.racv. Tho Journal des Mmts, the most influential paper in the French Empire, reflects the national sentiment in relation to the pro posed Southern Confederacy, when it says of it, ns it does in a Into number : "It it pnrsuo its own way, but once more it must be pronounced that there is not a cor ner upon earth when it trill find sympathy and assistance," "Democratic" Economy- When the present Administration came in to power, there were 824,000,000 in the Na tional Treasury; all of that has been spent; tho Government is 8ti0,000,000 in debt besides and wo now receive tho plcasantiuformation that $22,000,000 will bo needed to carry on tho Government until the close of the fiscal year, ending June next nere we have the stupendous sum of $16,000,000 spent by the Administration and its Southern friends, in additicn to the amount annually realized by the Government from revenues, &c Post OfSce U'otico. - The Republicans of Delaware and idnlty are requested to meet at Templar HaUr Sattrr day evening, March 2d, at 7 o'clock p. in., to take into consideration the propriety of recin ding the resolution lately passed, allowing all the patrons of this office, irrespective of pry, to vote at the approaching election for Post Muster.
