It seems that Twigg's traitorous conduct in

Government for supplanting him, in the ap

known tliat Twiggs intended to liuve a confer
ence with tlie Texas commissioners ou the dis
position of tlie property of the Federal Gov
ernment. Twiggs gave ordiTi to every officer

Advices received yesterday represent that
among the terms was a stipulation reserving
officers their side aims, and another saying
that tlie disarmed troops were to be permitted
to be carried to the coast for shipment out of
Texas in Government wagons, which were sub
sequently to be accounted for to the revolu
tionists. Tlie whole number of enlisted troops
under Twiggs' command in Texas was 2,900,

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
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.

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
to enter into the arrangement, preferring to
select their own mode of making their appli-
cation. This was tlie case in Springfield and

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

We are not aware of the idea being "much

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

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."

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. "

of Stratford and vicinity called ut thu residence
of Mr. Fktkr Pbacl, for the purxiseof celebra

80 persons were there. The old gentleman
was taken by surprise, knowing nothing oi

abundont supply of the luxuries of life with
them. About 9 o'clock the company were
formed in a procession by Sir. I'erry and march
ed into the dining room to view the tables
groaning lieneath their weight, the blessing of
(iod was invoked, after wliich the company re
tired to the Parlor, and served with cours after
cours nntil we were convinced there was lit
least Kmc truth in the saving of " killing one
with kindness," for indeed we feared there
was dauber of " bursting our magazine" when
we ncccpted the last cours which wns oysters.
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. One tiling we do agree
with him in, and th.it is in denouncing treason
to our Government, in any nnd all liarties.
As the time of departure drew near there

the confusion wc got hold of a little black
haired baby which we were sorely tempted to
run away with, but was prevented doing so by
its fond mother, the girls pitched in ami

in for our share but was held at n proper dis

for once, resolved to try it some other time.

and success of constitutional monarchy in

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

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
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. . ..

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.
After which the following resolutions were
offered and adopted :
1st. Resolved, That we approve nnd highly
recommend the energetic labors and efforts
of the committee of the Kingston Kansas
aid society in securing donations for the suf
ferers in Kansas.
2d. Resolved, That we highly appreciate
the benevolent sympathetic feelings and ac
tions of the ladirs of this society in donating
money and clothing for the suffering and des
titute inhabitants in the region of Kansas.

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
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
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
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
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
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
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

Tho Commissioners from the Southern
Confederacy are expected to arrive here be

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
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.

It is believed that Floyd will be here this

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.

but there is not a great demand for tickets us
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.
