MV V* sonnet mmJoriati to <”«twr* r^iod aiwMlllHim K< llectlonw for the S»rlh Without exaggeration, it may be said that throughout the civilised world an intense interest is felt in the revo I it ion which convulse# thi# nation. Events are occurring ij r.pi I •accession, which shake to their foundat ons the institutions of our tlovernutent, Slate aud uational, and may shake these of others a# well. We are in the midst of a revolution, call it by what name we may—Secession dip union, dissolution, abolition, are but other names for revolution. We arc iu a stat-* of revolution, North and ft.iuth. Every act of the Northern people and States against the institution of slavery—an institution recog uuad and tutended to be protected by the Constitution — is ,rs much revolution a# the ordinance of secession in South Carolina. It is a bloodless revolution yet, except the prelude# in Kansas and at Usrper’s Kerry but how long it may be bloodless, how soon it may precipitate us into the most bloody and relentless of all wars—a civil war—God only knows. So far as human agency can control events, the question of peace or war depot! is upon the wisdom, prudence aud patriotism, not only of the men in power, hut of the people themselves, the source of power. We no longer ask, can the Union he preserved'’ The Uuton is gone. Can it be restored*— «'an we form a reunion ' Will it be a reunion of the whole, or of dismembered fragments * Can civil war be averted* Can we bo saved from the fate of ail Republic# that have risen, flourished and fallen * These momentous qaeations interest every citizen, because they involve all the rights dear to a free people—the rights of life, liberty and propel tv—to soetire which , overnment# are insii luted. At such a time the voice of the people should ho fieard, and the sentiment of the people should be tell. - ll ours it, aud is to be, a government of the people, the > iews aud opinions of intelligent private citizens, calmly expressed, will form an embodiment of public sentiment i it.at mast at last rule in a Republic. To the United States has been committed the great j mission of testing the capabilities of men in society to govern themselves. The wise men who framed the Con eiitutioo of the I cited Slate-, and the people of the State who ratified it, supf ose'd they had successfully solved the problem of man s capacity to govern himself, without any other sovereign head race-p! that of the sovereigti p.-ople. Thev thought they Lad devised a well balanced s. stem of government for the security and perpetuity of • nil liberty. They vatolv imagined that all the various conflicting interests of the scv. ral States had been hsr inonuod acd secured by the Constitution, and iba! it would form a mere perfect Union, establish iistice, in sure domestic trantpuiUty. pro.id.* for too coimnon de fence, and secure the ble-sitig-of liberty to them. Ives a:id thrir f osteritv. How scon, acd h..w signal!?, has a tailed in all the.-e object-1 That Union is now di--olve.i, i nit.ee denied, doaae.-tic irau.pnlitv converted into wil l passion ard d:-.-ord. The aims provided for the common defence are about to be turned, with suicidal madut.-s, y sec'ton igtii.st section, and brother against brother, iu a war ot mutual « steiiuiuat on. The general welfare aud the ble»».:.gs of liberty, Intel:ded by our faiheis to £»* trati-mitt.d to the remotest posterity, are all to be jeopardized, perhaps .uteri;.oed, in .-ueh a fratricidal w ar. Will au intelligent people, -o nlessed, so prospered, as we have been, allow sectional strife and discord to trans form them into maniacs, and to so infuriate them that. Sampson-like, they will blindly tear down the pillars .• the temple and crush ail iu one common ri.i: Tim founders of this (aOTerntnent designed it as a mod. ! Government, who-* dotation should not be limi'ed bv periods vibi h had marked the rue, progress, decline, and ruin of other empires, bu' should be eternal, and yet it has scarcely attaintd the age allotted to man.— “The day« of hi* year*, are three score yea.* and ten. and if by reason ot strergtb, they be .‘Our score year.', vet is his strength labor aud sorrow." The Coo.Ututioii dt’.es from the 17tb, of September 17S7, when it « a -n* ed by Washington, Xadisou, Hamilton, Franklin, at.d their compatriot*. Seventy-three years have eapired and now before it has attained to four score .ears, the strength ot' the Government, iu tabor and sorrow, in the decrepitude, infirmity and imbecility ot age, has failed, aud the Government itself is disrupted and in fragments. Seven States have dissolved their connection with the other Stales, Sooner or later the otbev vouthern States, either in mass or in rapid succe*-ion,.will sever their con nection with the Union, unless the Northern people and States change their policy, cease their aggressions opou t ,e Constitutional rights of the South, and.in good faith n it only accotd to os our rights, but fulfil! their t'ocstit.i, lional obligation-. If the pn -< nt representation in Con. g es- fiotu ihe North be at. e\poueat of Northern senti ment, then, indeed aie the hop,* of the Union gone.— We have deprecated sece -ion, disunion, revolution, with all 'heir train of evils, and h eve cherished an abiding H>ve of the Uuioi but dear as is that Union, it eMnuot be maintained at tiic -acr tire of our interest and our honor. W. know we eepress Virginia sentiment, when we say that iinle-- the North nve-d*- tuc South will secede. We d.» iiot mean, that tfie Son them Scat** miil withdraw1, go out, and leave rights l*ehin-' belt that the . will, upon separa tion, carry with them all their rights. We presume the -s ceding St iic* do not propose- toabundou their rights in the common tre e-ore, territories, aud property, ol the United States, but intetid to a :sert and maintain those r.ch;s. Everv slave State will be ioiiwllcd to make com mo:: c*i:-e in self defence upon the first movement o* the Northern States to coerce a I o;on or to compel sub Biisrioa. The I'niou was on* of common Interest and common consent It cannot l»e preserved by force against ouHbWnM and cooaeot. Such a Union would be the worst of tyrannise. All Government derives its just power from tbe governed. A Government of force against the consent of the governed is a despotism to | which no free or brave js*opie can or will submit. L-t I us rather imitate the example ot Abraham and Lot— Wheu their substance was so groat that the land was not able to bear them, so that they rould not dwell to gethrr, and there was strife between their herdmen, Abra ham nobly said to Lot; “Let there be no suite, I pray thee, he*.ween me and tbee, and between mv herdtueti, au.l tby herdmen, tor we be brethren. Is not the whole Und before thee v Separate thyself, 1 prsy thee, from m-, if thou wdt take the let. hud, then I will go to the right; or it' thou depart to the right hand, I w til go to the irti." If wear, so prosperous thit w.- nr,not live to gether, if our sub»‘ance be so great that the laid cannot bear us; let there be no strife between us, for "» are brethren, but let us separate in peace. The whole laud Is >«efore uv let us separately puisue the destiny wkieb awaits us, it together we cannot go onward and upeaii in the march towards a manifest dentinv of greatnes* ar.d glory. Some other mode besides force must he derived for preservmg or restoring the Union. Tbg cause of disccn tt it and disruption must be removed, I'ubbcaeatig'cnt, the foundation of government must be rctormed. Tbe rctor nation must uegin at ttiejiorih. The Northern peo p -should, and we 'rua will, put dow n abolitionist* »x h >tte. They should, and we trust will, repeal their per • maJ liberty laws. They ought to a1 tend to their own b tauieas and let the attiirs of uig &iuth alone. They • iouIJ remember that slavery existed .0 u.0 i olcjlixS, tbs’ it existed «Ua the Constitution was formed, that ix i* recognized and p-otected by tbe Constitution, and that they sold their slaves to the people of the South. They have been inisio! and Oes-eived by Ixnatiwt and Jeuix g >guea. The moat absurd falsehood* have beep impos ed upon them an truth*. Abolition sentiments have been taught them from the stomp and the pulpit with a perti n u: ty which.bad it been directed to tbe promotion of tbe p;ace and prosperity ot tbe country,would have made if* I’ik'D perpetual, instead of deatroviug it. It is said to be tbe seofmeut of the North that tbe Union mu-t and siaU be preserved. Then they must not make it odious by a never ceasing annoyance; they must let itbeeu drtred to us by its blowing*, and especially by the peace, ocarity and tranquility which it was intended to ensure. 10m ist be a Union of fraternal attachment to be perma nent. Force can oever hold an unwilling people togeth er in any politi -al Union. We cannot be farced to fra* leroU* with any people who, instead of treating as as f .eads. evi me a ditpoiuoa to In at us worse iba* a for jnfn t avoir dare do. Uo« fkr foieigo nations iaalout of tbs growing grool ot this tree H--, iblioau ua'.iOD, and with tbs siu star purpose gf debating our experiment of eivil librrlT, bare fomented t; ■> infernal spirit of Abolitionism, aud secret ly uiged ou tui lilt crusado of hi very again't us, is bet ter known to the North than to the South. Abolitionism is of fore'gn growth, trinspUnted Iroiu England 'nl° Free Slates, to accomplish a deep laid scheme of policy, equally fatal to both sections. Two leading objects are jo be effected by such policy. First, a .dismemberment of the Union, the subversion of the Government, the dea. traction of our nationality, and the consequent failure of a great, aud thus far, successful experiment of free self government and civil liberty, and the extinguishment of the hopes and aspirations of the nations of the world for such a govemmeut—and D*xt, to break down the man ufactures of the North and destroy their rivalry, so as to secure to British manufactures and commerce the monop oly of the Southern markets. Give to England free tiade with the South, protected by discriminating duties u|>on Northern goods, as foreshadowed in the inaugural addrees of Gov. Pickens to the Legislature of South Carolina— give her also the carrying trade of the South, and the monopoly of eottou for her manufacturers, and the mo nopoly of the Southern markets for her goods, and then the Southern States, severed or confederated, will be worth more to her than all the Colonies would have been worth to her, had they remained British provinces. Let freedom f ail in the Uuited States from any came, especially let it fail from our own internal dissension»t and then F iropean Monarehs will breathe freely again, and feel forever secure in their thrones. The prediction of monarchists, that our exper ment would prove a fail ure, would be realized. Kings will no longer be startled by f.ar of revolution, or of having their sovereignty transferred to their people, or of being forced to make concessions of liberal principles or institutions to the re publican spirit of their subjects. Monarchical govern ments will be strengthened aud confirmed. They kuow that our example in looked to by the world. If we fail, where and when shall freedom rise ph-enix-like from the ashes of our ruins* Mav we, too, not apprehend that, divided among our. selves, denationalized, disorganized, and demoralized, we m iv be forced, after a long reign of anarchy and ter ror, as the French people were, to “eek protection under a strong government * Shall we despair of the Repub lic * Shall it be allowed to be a failure * Shall no effort be made to restore the Union and re-establish it upon an enduring basis* Shall we prove degenerate sons of no ble sires ‘ Shall we value lightly, or cast away as worth less, the priceless heritage of freedom for which they toiled, and which thev committed to us, that we might transmit it unimp ired to posterity * Shall wc not rather distru-t foreign inriuence, and return to our attachment and alleg mice, to our own glorious Constitution and Union, which have nude ns the greatest, the freest, the happiest and moat prosperous people on the globe* It is for the North to say, whether this great country and uuliou »liuil U- divided or shall remain oue and insepa rable. Thev may save the Union hy a thorough revolu ti n of public -ent.m*nt at ho ne, and by a tnipnaniuious r ; ;m to the plain duties ot allies, friends, brethren, ej ret of a common cc ntry. Without this a union or re-union is impossible.

SIC. LETIER FROM MR. CRITTENDEN. The following letter, which we find in tho F’rankfort ComnwHireatlh of Saturday, needs uo explanation : Skxatk, Jan. 2sth, lSfil. Mv Dear Coombs:—I feel under many obligations to you for your many letters, and 1 beg that you will con tiuue the correspondence, notwithstanding my omissions What with business consultations, and unavoidable com pany, 1 have in truth hardly time to write a line to the b -ft friend, or even to draw a free breath. Your letters have a freshness about them that makes me ftul and pec the things you tell me. All things here are in chaos and and dtrkuess, yet I have every evidence that though my resolutions tiny not pass they will be the root out ol which a settlement will grow. The news from Frankfort is that you will not call a Convention. I am glad of it. There is no cause why we should hasten out of the ruiou at this time, and unless that is intended, I do not know what we want with a Con vention. Preparations made often induce us to do things from which mote consideration would have restrained us. Old Kentucky has too much dignity and history to be drifted about by every changing tide in politics. Her movements in the present crisis ought to be well meas ured, well considered, and marked with steadfast manli ness. We ought to see clearly what we are to gain by Disunion, before we abandon a l'uion in which we have enjoyed so much liberty, so much prospetty, aud so many blessings. 1 write iu haste and must conclude. \ our F riend, J.

Retirn or riiK women and nm.nRKx—coxt'tTios or THE FORT-—PREPARATION'S FOR OEIKN-K—A St t'PLT Ol PROVISIONS — DETAILS FROM CBARLISTON, , It was stated yesterday that the steamer Marion, ('apt. Adkins, arrived at Sew r ork on Wednesday, from i\.rl Aufrxra uifli flu* WilM't'M ftllil t'hllllrPI! IfOm V(Tl Sumter. She brought sixty passenger' in all, and of thr-io twenty-five are children. Oa their arrival at New fork they were takeu to Fort ilainiltou, where they will remain for the present. TIIK APPKARA.VE ot THK lloVKS AM* CHIUlRKN. The women and children mentioned above, the Times -avs, were embarked by ord r of Major Anderson, lor the double purpose ol relieving the garrison and placing them out of danger incase an a'tack should be nude.— They a'l appeared in good health, and give uo indica tions ol having stiff-1 rod by their six weeks’ residence .v the fort. They wi re all respec'ahly ami eontbrtably clad, and appear to have been well prepsred for com ing from a comparatively mild to a cold climate in mid winter. With few exceptions they appeared in good spirits, and some of them even in ilieerfal humor, and wi re not all inclined to put a bad face upon affairs in Sutnli r. The more Intelligent and thoughtful among them however, appeared anxioti3 and ea>eworn. They had taken leave of their husbands wi h heavy heart', aud might never see them again. The sight of so many women, many of them intelligent and lady-hke, with lit tle families ot helpless children clingiug to them for sup port aud protection, was calculated to excite deep com miseration. THK FORCE t.N THK PORT. There had been no reinforcement of Mijor Auder-on up to the time of their leaving, on Friday last. Seventy nine persona, including the officers ami band, aud exclu sive < l a working corps of some twenty men, under Cap tain Foster, constitute the whole garrison—a force gen era!!* felt to be insufficient for a rigorous or prolonged defense of the place. “It i a shame," said one ol the most intelligent of the partv, ••that they should he left there to be destroyed; if the (lovernraeut canuot send them help, they ought to let them come away. When l.ieut. Talbot returned from Washington the command were assembled, and the decision of the President com municated to them. The expressions of confidence re post d in them by the authorities at Washington gave them new h- art, nnd every man declared he would fight to the last, and die rather than surrender. A great many guns have beeu mounted on the second and third tiers, and they are now in as good condition to defend the fort as they will eier be, excepting that they are short-handed. A light is kept burning throughout the night in each of the casemates, aud everything ready for instant action. There is uoUck of ammunition, ami an v quantity of grenades of a destructive character have been prepared for use at close quarters. There have been no deseitious, no disaffections exist, aud the entire com mand entertain the highest respect and even admiration for Major Anderson, with whom they are ready to stand or fall in their country’s defense. PROVISIONS. For the first time during their stay in the fort, they re ceived a quantify of fr>sh beef on Thursday list, but the* could not tell where it came from, or whether ar rangements had been made to obtain a continued sup p’v The rations have consisted of salt provisions, with beans and a moderate quantity of vegetables. The Hour is reduced to a twenty days’ supply, and hard bread is dispensed twice a week to eke It out. Of sugar aud cof fee, a half barrel 01 each is beloved to be all (here is left. The oil i' also getting low, and the greatest econo my is practiced in the use of these latter articles. There ja’ij good supply of pork and bff, which must constitute the main reduce of the garrison, unless they are soon supplied. THE DEPART! Rk. As the Marion passed Fort Sumter on her way out the whole garrison assembled on the ramparts and gave them three parting cheers, which were tearfully respond ed to by the departing women and children Great auxi etv was evinced bv them to know the course events were likely to take, aud the most earnest wishes were express ed that affairs might be peaceably settled, and without d:oou»ucu. DETAILS FROM CO A RLESTON. A correspondent of tlie New York Times at Charles ton, in a letter dated Kiiday, referring to tlie departure of the women and children says I countvd tweuly-two . omen and some thirty children. Among the Utter there were little b. unties of ten aud twelve, with strong Milesian or Teutonic features, and from that age away down to little babes, who have just seen the light undercover of terribleOolnmbiads, mortars, Ac. The worn, n ranged from It; to tin, mostly bard featured aud ordinary in cj-pjarance, the common run of soldier’s wives, although there were a f.iw exceptions. Their bravery, however, made amends for their plain fac s.— Every ot,c whom 1 conversed with seemed proud of hav ii v their husbands at Sumter, nnd mauy said they would have stai • unto the b iter eud if need be, but the orders were positive, and to-night none but stern, detenu ned m u sleep wiibiu those now famed wall*. Two women stay iu Chaileston , one of these is only 17, and has b en married three mouth*. With true Iii-h lightness of heart, ntie said that Michael was a brave soldier, and she hoped for the best. Tlie I’a'm ttoan* now say that between the Mh and 10th of this month the fort will surely be attacked. O.:o of them gave me a graphic account yesterday of the sand fort* on Morris’ I-land, and the heavy batteries that frow u from Moultrie, Morris and James’ Islands. Ho says that the James’ I-land battery points directlv at the gate of Snnrer aud the C.iuunius’ point one baa coluuibiads mounted. This is distant only three quarters of a mile from Sumter. Th s military gentleman acknowledges that this city can be shelled with perfect ease. Governor Pickens is denounced by many as being a perfect old fo gs. I never heard any one speak unkindly of his wife, however. She is a perfect bundle of fascinations, and the younger officers go crazy over her. I saw her at Fort Moultrie the other afternoon cutting an Immense dash. The troops were reviewed for her especial ben efit. wf the 1,600 men on Sullivan's Island, hardly a com pany ha* a dress alike. Many stalwart fellow* have bur tied from their hauisS, hearing only their trusty rifle, while some have extemporised a costume a It) (fatibalui. This red blouse is very picturesque, and the bearers of It are men of great muscle, and powerful fellows in every sons?. Gov.

The South Carol nians fight for an idea, and vhgrp tfioy think their honor i.i concerned, they dismiss ail abstractions ana fight to the death. 1 am perfectly convinced, from what 1 bave seen here and in other portions of the South wjthiu three months, that the hold ug of any more Union meetings at the North is s perfect farce.

After the presentation of a large number of conipri 1 mise-Union resolutions from various States, which wet [ laid on the table— Mr. Thomson, of New Jersey, read a short speech i reply to the remarks of his colleague (Mr. Ten Eyck) few days since, in defense of the light of instruction.

Mr. Ten Eyck responded in a few remarks, defendin his course, after which the President's message win take up, and Mr. Wigfall proceeded. He said the Senate from Tennessee seemed to think he had been the otjec of special attack, but he had not seen any such attack: The Senator now denies that he ever was in favor of cc ereion. But it was too late now to deny that such »a the effect of his extraordinary speech, ile (Mr. Wigfal had too often seen Southern meu too weak in the knee: and such men generally got their reward. The Senator from Tennessee says the secession move rnent was the work of politicians. But he would like t know what the Senator was if not a politic an himself. - The Senator had the boldness to say that even Soutl Carolina, if the question had been presented to the pec p'e, would not have seceded. But the people of tha State had cried out en ma»»e for blood, and urged th authorities to attack Fort Sumter, that this disgrace ti their honor might be wiped out. The charge that thi people of South Carolina are not entitled to suffrage i entirely without foundation. The Senator complains that bis great argument has no beeu answered, but when did he make any great argu ment? Be certaiuly had not heard it. The Senator Iron Louisiana (Mr. Benjamin) bade us farewell the other daj iu tones which must have touched the heart of every m ti who had a heart; yet the Senator from Ti nuessae con eiders it a farce. This is the impression the disruptioi of the Union makes on his mind. He talks of loving tin Union, when he has done as much os any other mau tc destroy the Union. The Senator preteuds not to bo i politician, and yet he was guilty of using the exprtssiot that the people of Louisiana had been bought with i price as chatties. It is said in the streets that the Sena tor w-.s in c!o.-e conclave with the Senator from New Yotk (Mr. Seward) and the Senator from MnssacbuMilli t Mr. WilRon ) Mr Johnson Raid there war no foundation iu any sued rumor, and he did not think the Senate a proper place iuto which to bring such rumors. Mr. Wigfall said " de rjustitm* non ett dhputaudum.' Ho thought it a very proper place. Hut he thought il strange that those who profess such love for the black race have so little sympathy lor their own race. Iu re paid to the admission of Louisiana, the Senator Iretti Tennessee had garbled the documents. Mr. W. then re I'err. d to and read the ordinance admitting Louisiana in to the Union, ile contended that the Senator from Ten nessee had placed himself on the republican platform, and deuitd the equality of the States. A monstrous perversion has been made of the doc trines of the great man (Jackson) who was a shining light to all democracy. Nationalism lias been charged upon him, and he ptoposed to defend him from that charge. He then rcud from numerous documents and addre-ses to show that Jackson never admitted that the government w as more than a compact between thcStau t. lie then proceeded to argue against the right of coer cion, and contended that any attempt at blockade or for cible collection of the revenue is coercion, and it is fool ishness ui d nonsense to say it is anything tLe. If the Senator wishes to denounce secession and nul lification, let him first denounce Jefferson and Jacksou it lie dare, and then go hack to the Tennessee democra cy and see if they will be content with burning him sim ply in uligv. He then read copious extracts Iroin Jack son and other early statesmen to show that the dcuio cratie Slate rights party always maintained the doctiiue of secession hr a right pertaining to State sovereignty, and vet in spite o' nil the name of Jackson is held up to sustain doctrines which lie always rejected and despisol lie contended (hat Ma ibon understood that the consti tution, uf er being adopted by the State, could te re nounced by them at any time; and such, mainly, was the understanding of the different States when they ratified the constitution—the powers they delegated could be re sumed at any time. He said he had often refuted the stale slander that the Senatt rs from the South had vot«d that slavery need protection. He had always contended that the United St ites was bound to proto t all property everywhere lb Hi* kinridgo pirtv never m'en led to break up the Union; ih y intended to make it worth saving, lint two million men voted that their property should be confiscated ; anti the question came up w I ether it was safe tor them to r< - ,n iiii in the Union I' Six of the States have decided it mh riot. -- Hut the Senator from Tennessee wou'd have the State of Tennessee tacked on to the tail of the Re publican party. lie may talk about the Helper hook, but he could say that Helper had never written anything more unbound or more outrageous against the slave States than the senti ments ol a Southern Senator on this floor. Who but such a tnnn as Help t or a renegade Southron dared to suggest that the South could uot trust the non-slave holders among themv They were loyal to the South, and Helperiam would not divide the true men of the South in this dark day. The Senator says that the South wants Kentucky and Tennessee to h Ip to tight lor Mex ico. Who told him so? Which of hi- Black Republican al 1 ij. » 1; « is another Black Republican -lander which lie dared to utter here. They meant to do no such thing ; they would have enough to attend to their own affiirs.— The Senator from Tennessee had dared to attack the Sen ator from Mississippi (Davis) whiu he was ab-eut. He paid a high tribute to the merits of .Mr. Davis, and said it iie had been here he would have replied in mouosy la bles,“Lord Angus, thou bast li- d.” [Applause in the gal (cries, when ou moliou of Mr Unandler, after much con fusion, the galleries were cleared J Mr Wigfall proc eded ; he said they did not wi-li to make war on anybody; they intended to live under just such a government as they r aw fit; six States have gone o it of this Union because they choose, that was all. They had revoked the former treaty called a constitution, but were willii g to make another treaty of amity. They bad no fears of war, and they had no fears ol insurrection among negroes. An invading army could not make much progress in the South, could not steal npgrocs nor hum up planta ions ; but un invading army might bum up populous towns and manufactories. Be then proceeded to argua that the South always had re sources of plenty ol money in their cotton—had a mine of wealth in it. The North could not tax broken manu facturers and starving operatives. You talk of block ading our ports, and suppose we will keep still all the while. If a blockade is attempted, it must he au act of war, and w ill he so considered; but letters of maique i and reprisal will roon destroy Northern commerce; any ves-el earning thirty-three stars would be fired on, os carrying the stars which they Ind plucked from the tlig, as it would be considered au insult. He then read the Sew York Tribune’s notices of Mr. Johnson’s speech, and contended that the Senator from Tennessee always had been a Red Republican, and seeking for popular ap plause. lie compared the men of the revolution who left the British tlag and fired on it, to the men who now are doing the same. He s»id the Senator from Tennessee was like the Tories of old. who followed their (lag, a miserable piece of bunting, with figure- on it, and forgot liberty. He said the Ssnator from Tennessee had i.ot been at tacked; he had made a speech offensive to the whole South. The sqbject was postponed till Monday next, and the Senate arijourr ed HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. On motion of Mr. Grow, tho House ordered that the bill nasi-i d bv the Senate for the organization of the Ter ritory of Colorado be printed. Mr Sniuner oresenled a memorial from citizens of the Suite* of KftDtQi'ky, praying the passage of the ('ritten don resolutions as the basis for the settlement of the na tional difficulties. Mr. Niblark vsked for the regular order, calling up the bill reported last evening entitled “an act to promote the progress of useful arts.” This bill provides for the reor ganization of the Patent Office laws. The hill was passed with amendments. Mr. Fowler, front the Committee on Invalid Pensions, reported a hill providing for the granting of full pensions to the ljnea| descendants of the officers who died in the revolutionary war, or those woo served in the war who had not deserted or been dishonorably discharged. Mr. ValUudigham offered propositions to amend the constitution by dividing the United States into four sec tions. The New England and Middle States to constitute one the Southwestern States another the Southern btutea went of the Kio tjrande another, and the Pacific States another. These States to he called respectively the North, the South, the Pacific, the West. New States within the prescribed limits of each section to be a part of such diyi-ion a. It rosy he adjacent so. The latitude of tifi 50 to the Rocky Mouutaii j to be the line between the West and South. The morning hour having expired — Mr. U. Winter Divis addressed the House ou the spe cial order, the report of the committee ol thirty-three. He said that we are now at the end of that insane and rabid course which for thirty years has been run in the Unit-d Stiles, and it only remains for us to close the masquerade in the dat ci of war. What will come of this r mains to be seen. In the early youth of the republic and of our national |ife, whpr, wo had alrpaify risen to the highest grade, then by our early and premature ex cesses, by the corruption of our political maxims, we have utterly demoralized all the spiritof our government. With those maxims, such as “the voice of the people is the voice of God,” and such like, will in the course of affairs utterly efface every id a of government. It was for th*. sake of the dis’ribution uf the spoils among partixaus, and uot for real or alleged grievances, that this warfare had been inaugurated at the exp, use of hope atiJ pence. The idea of constitutional power and authority have faded from their minds, as well as the idea that the United States government is entitled to re spect and to command, and Ls able to meet their griev atices and redress their wrongs. He repudia'ed the idea thyt tf)e unity of the Slates is limited to the mere autho rity invested |u the common head Of the government of the United States and those who arc in authority at the capital of the nation. These and similar causes are those which lie at the bottom of the present difficulties. Wjthin a few rngnths there had been an election for chief magistrate of the United States. In this there was notbiug new. There w ere no new causes of grievance. Yet within one short month these States, South Ca-ollua, Alabama, Georgia, Florida and |(Ot|ist^oa. had usurped the federal authority, and dared to repeal tpe jugreipe las of (he 4n*J.

They have accede.| from the Union aud taken the arms which were for the defence of the United Stales ; they hat e seized 'he United States property aud robbed the I nited M'ates treasury, aud there arc other syu p oms cf the great demoralization. Wc have seen a cabinet officer violate his trust and dlstr bute arms in a manner so that they might be reached by these who wished to page war against the United States, aud those States ban seat popjmisHOhers all over the South to iLtJtme the p pular atjod, and,added to all, a cabinet clif ter had |>e*n retained, wheu'h* held tho position if one of three viry commissioners. lie said that the Uws must be enforced, and those crushed who Stand in the way. ‘ — Ho reviewed lit* action of the couituiUco of thirl; three, and mots particularly lha minority puitloo.

He spoke in the most favorable terms of the Critter g den propositions, but he believed they would never par a with the mass of the people of the North.

[Applause.] He wa , not, however, enabled to speak tor Virginia, but h would speak for Maryland. If sho believed she ba . wrongs, Congress could remedy them, or a conventio; > of the States would do so. Mr. Kunkel said the gentleman might speak for him i self, but not (or the 8tate of Maryland. Mr. Davis declined to yield to the gentleman. He spok t what he knew to be true. > Mr. Kunkel said that the gentleman represented th< , “plug-uglies.” ne would meet him here if he talkei , about inaugurating revolution. ! The confusion in the House became so great, with thi applause and hisses in the galleries, that the remarks wen ; suspended for some minutes. After the close of Mr. Davis’s remarks, Mr. Sedgwick of New York, addressed the House, advocating strong Northern principles, after which the House took a recesi , till 7 P. M. COTTON KINO IN K NO LAND. | From the London Timet of Jon 22] The Ameiican Revolution is advancing with rapic strides to a consummation. Within a week or two wt may expect to hear ol civil war between the States ol the (treat Republic. Aniious as we feel to escape suet a conclusion, we do not see how it is to be evaded. The North is no longer disposed to make concessions, even il the South would listen to compromise, aud, although we ■nay allow for a certain amount of bluster on the side ol the Secessionists, nobody doubts that Americans are ready to light. We look upon this prospect with unaf fected horror. Independent of our national sympathies, we have enormous interests at stake—such interests, in deed, that our charity must Degin at home. We deplore the political catastrophe, but our first thoughts must ne cessarily be given to its commercial < fleets. If the South ern States of the Union are convulsed by war, a servile insurrection will be only too probable un incident of the strife ; if the slaves rebel, the cotton crop perishes; aud with the failure of the cotton crop comes ttie paralysis of cur own staple manufacture. The ques'ion is so mo mentous that it caunot be toos triously urged, or too ex pediiioindy entertained. Lancashire depends on South Carolina, and what South Carolina is doing becomes ter ribly evident from each successive despatch. The tele grams of Saturday last were the most ominous yet re ceived, and if we compare with those reports an article from a weekly contemporary which we yesterday tran scribed, the perils actually ahead cf us will be diatiuctly appreciated. We gave insertion all the more willingly to the re marks of the Kconomitt, because they were designed to mitigate alarm. They professed to give the facts and figures of the ease without exaggeration, and to lufomi the public exactly of what might be ex peeled if the wor-1 came io the worst. Such being the spirit of the article, it may be fairly assumed that at least all the consequences anticipated would really occur iu the event of an Ameri can war, and what those consequences would be we can now brh fly explain. The number of people actually de pendent on our canon manuiaciures iur lueiriiauy nrca.i is eatim ited at nearly 4,o0t')li,(Mf—that it to say, at about one-six It of tli cnt.re fopulatinn of Great Britain. The extent to which oar export trade depends on the same branches of industry is expressed by the fact that cotton goods constituted more than one-third of the aggregate exports of lS.Vj. Finally, the degree in which we have hitherto dep -tided for the material of all this trade on the Southern States of the I ninn appears Horn the statement that upon an (average of the last four years America sent us 77 per cent, of all the cotton we consumed. That much is admitted, and the d< dilution is at once so obvious and so alarming that we do not see hoar it could bo ex aggerated. Our contemporary, however, has some crumbs of con solation for us. There are many couutiks which produce cotton, and when the American supply f ills short of our w-iuts, a« it has occasionally done, the exports from oth qnartf r« it crease. For instance, four years ago the crop of the United States proved deficient, and the conse quence was that other countries, and especially India, sent us an amount making a rep ctable approximation to the whole American yield. From the skive States we g t l,4*<u/K)ft biles, while from o'her sources we actual ly obtained altno.-t 1,000,000, of wt ich India contributed nearly two-thirds. Assuming, therefore, that our yearly consulsp ion may he reckoned at 2 iMt.iMtu hales, it would not he extravagant to suppose that the miscella tiroes sources of Ftipply might be made, under the ex traordinary Drets'irc wh'ch might ensue, to furnish us with 1,20(1,fin i, or, in other words, with half the amount required. Here, then, wc see the extreme effect which might be produced by the suspension of cotton produc tion in the -lave States of the Union, and the absolute interruption of supplies from that quarter. All our mills would have to work half time. That it does not follow, as a matter of necessity, that all our workpeople would eirn only half wages may be perfectly true. It is also true that the constque.-ces would hs probably mitigated by economy of consumption and various other incidents oi the crisis,while it isccrtaiu that tho dearth of material would he only temporary, and that the irresistible stimu lus applied to cotton produc'iou iu other quarters of the globe would soon Block our market as abundantly as be fore. All this may be true,at,<1 it may, moreover, be mi milted that the u?tfr destruction of the American cotton ctop is too extreme a case to b.- fairly supposed. Iu the worst of events we should get something. We are certai: ly not inclined to depreciate these argu in:-n s. We prefer, ou the contrary, to give them their full weight, and assume that the worst contingency com eeiveble amount8 simply to this,—that for a certain pe riod, probably a brief one, all our cotton mills would le compelled to work half-time. We take that a8 the result to te anticipated, according to reasonable and temperate oilcuhtiou ; and we a.-k whether any man in the king dom can contemplate it without terror * Look at the r- - suits of a month's frost,—mere “olJ fashioned Christines weather!" The interruption of a few minor trades for t few winter days lias pauperized the metropolis and driven half our authorities to beccme relicvitig-officers for the time. Look at Coveutry, with a total population, rich and poor together, of leas than 40,000, disturbed by the decay of the rihaud trade. The charity of the whole kingdom, lavishly bestowed, lias just si.tliced to k“eo the snfferets from starving till spring or fashion shall b ing relief. Take these txnnpVa and apply the deduction to the cotton manufacture. Instead of a tew thousands, imagine 4,000,00*; people In trepidation and distress. Wtmt subscription, what societies, what poor rates, what police courts could meet such a case as that > Where could the relief come from 7 Uncoiled that, while so much national industry would by paralyze d, so much national wealth would ho e.i-o lost. We should be doing one-third less trad'*, and who can tell bow far the mere panic incidental to such an unprecedented crisis might hot aggravate the realities <d the peril V There is not an hour to be lost in providing again 11his tremendous danger. Tu put tnc .aae in the uiilde l form, three fourths of our cotton supply has become unceilaiu, one-third of our trade is in jeopardy, and the earuiugsef one-sixth of our population may hi rendered precarious. Noi a doubt exists about the resources at our couiinaod. Co'ton can bo grown almost us commonly as wheat. The best seeds and the b-s’ stap'es are now well and -r.ffood, and the proper methods of cleaning and packing ran be easi'y taught. The rest is the work of a year or two.— Since the publication of our last rcmaiks on this subject we have received a communication from one of the soci eties interested in African civilization, informing us that the progreut of coHon cu'tivation at Abbeokuta. as actu ally and authentically recorded, ;s suph as 10 tuatch the beginnings of eyen Amerycau enterprise. Iu 1850 that Obscure, pouch productive region, sent ubout half a bale Of cotton to Ragland. In 18S5 this modicum had been incteased about forty foil, and in lt>Cn it actually amount ed to 2000 I-ales. We are assured tb$t the district could easily grow cotton enough for thp consumption of all Lancashire, and we urc asked whother the intrudii.'lion of skilled Negroes from the United Stales would uolsoou giye us a new Chayleunn on the African coast ? From In dia the offers are the same. If in 1887 India could send us, as she did, 080,000 bales, it is fair enough to presume that under the pres sure and with the encouragement of a strong demand, she could raise her supplies to 1,000,000 bales, nearly half of our immediate waDta. Then, again, there is Australis, actually inquiring for a staple article of pro duce, and desirous of nothing better than to he set cot ton-growing for England. We do not dissemble the par ticular difficulty of the case. We have repeated I.' ob served, a .d wp acknowledge onpe [pore, that America has got the call of the ma;ket. |t is tint that her advan tages might not bo equalled ip the end hy those of Aus tralia or India, hut at present she erjoys all those facili ties ol organiaition and traffic which would have to be created elsewhere. The creation would be perfectly practicable, but it has still to he accomplished, and in the meantime there is the old-established firm, with i|s capi tal, its connexions, and all that makes business profitable, yet undamaged- Nobody can say, however, that the sc. curity will last a month longer, and besldos that our national interest calls imperatively for new supplies. It Is worth reflecting that if the agriculture of the slave States should be ruined there will be a trade of .£'40,000, O'fO a year to be picked up by some other couutries.

RKI7.CRI or TIIIC REVKNUR I.TTTKR MC CI.RI.LANn. Washington, Feb. 7.—The following statement :n rt i latiou to the surrender of the revenue cutter Robeit Mi Clellaud is derived from an official source. The cutter is one of the largest and best in the revenu service, just rebuilt and refitted. Her commander wa Capt. Breshwood, of Virginia. On tbe ltj’.h of Jannarj four days after Secretary Dix took charge of the Treast ry Department, he sent Mr. Wm. Hemphill Jones, chie clerk in the First Comptroller’s office, to New Orlean aod Mobile, to save, if possible, the two cutlers in svrvic there. C.ipt. Morrison, a Georgian, commanding th Lewis Cass, at Mobile, must have surrendered her befor Mr. Jones arrived. *>n the 29th of January, the Secrc tary received the following telegraphic di-patch from Mi Jones: "New Orleans, Jan. 29th, 1861. Hon. J, A. Dix, Secretary of the Treasury . Capt. Breshwood has refused positively in writing tt obey any instructions of the Department. In this I an sure lie is sustained bv the collector, and I believe act by his advice. What must I do? W. II. JONES, Special Agent. To this dispatch Secretary Dix immediately returner the following answer: “Treasury Department, Jan. 29, 1861. ‘‘Wm. Hemphill Jones, New Orleans: ‘ Tell Lieut. Caldwell to arrest Capt. Breshwood, a* sunie command of tile cutter, and obey the order througl you. If Capt. Breshwood, after arrest, undertakes u interfere with the cotnnuud of the cutter, tell Lieutenant Caldwell to consider him ss a mutineer, and treat him ar cordiugly. If any one attempts to haul down the Amcri can Mag, shoot him on the spot. John A Dix, "Secretary of the Treasury.” This dispatch, it is said, must have beeu intercepted both at Montgomery and New Orleans, and withheld from Mr. Jones, and doubtless the conduct of Can'ain Bresh wood was consummated by means ot a complicity on the pirt of the telegraph line in thn States of Alabama and Louisiana, which litter State has accepted the cutter.

At New ^ ork, Wednesday, General Storms fired from the battery thirty-five guns, one for each of the States, and one for old Virginia,—the Old Dominion now hold ing the North and South apart from "the light." It is calculated that the French .post conveyed during the p :st year "o'^OOO "ftO private letters, and "2,000,fM»0 1 t ers for the government, giving an average of eight letters per annum for each inhabitant of France; the average for England per head being twenty-four. In the Connecticut Democratic State Convection reso lutions were adopted favoring the Crittenden Coinpro mi -.-; deflating that any inf ringement upon the equality of the States ia a violation of the Constitution, and that the personal liberty bills -hould be repealed. Chung Wang, the Chief of the Chinese rebellion, has written a letter to an American Missionary, predicting that the Tartar dynasty will soon be swept away, and in viting Americans to open commercial relations and send ministers to the nort.s of China, under his rule. lie has directed cep es cf the letter to be sent to the President of the United States, the t^ueeti of England, Emperor of France, and Kings of Spain, Portugal and Holland. A considerable number of free negroes iu Louisiana who were not wanted at borne, and whose self-respect forbade that they should go North, to be treated with universal cont-mpt, thought they would emigrate to Hayti, where the negro is sovereign. The singular fact is now stated, that a considerable number of tins class have returned to Louisiana, disgusted with flic Black RepuMic under which they expected to luxuriate. The Springfield Republican says that Mr. Salmon Adams, lately of the United States Armory in Spriugfield, and recently appointed Superintendent at Harper's Ferry, has acted as agent for some of the Southern States iu purchasing arms iu that vicinity, and has been quite suc cessful in getting them off to their destination. It is sup posed that arms are carried to Virginia by the oyster traders from New Haven. Four hundred legal voters of Braintree, Norfolk coun ty, Massachusetts—the birth-place of those sterling pat riots of t e K-volmiun, John Hancock and John Adtins —'nave signed a petition in favor of the Crittcudcn Res olutions, which was forwarded yesterday to Hon. Chas. F. Adams. Tne petition is signed alike by member* of all parties, and numbers about two-thirds of th* whole vote of the town. This, says a correspondent of the Bo - ton Courier, is thp beginning of the answer ot the people to, Senator Sumner's slander. Senator Slidell, of Louisiana, iu his farewell speech to the Senate, on Monday, said the sucesdoniats did not in tend to give up the old ttig. It belonged to the South as much *s it did to the North. This won certainly a very geu.ijble remark, and shows that there is yet some hope for the extremists. Certainly, the star-spangled banner was never intended to be surrendered to the fa il cics of the North It is a uational ti.ig, and not a sectional one. DIRECT TRADE WITH EUROPE. The following appear* in the commercial columns of the New York Herald of Thursday : The Fubjeet of a steam service from Norfolk to Europe is now engaging the attention of practical steamboat men in this city, and in conjunction with a well organized ays tern of through fr« ight delivery to point* in the interior of the Continent, promises fair to be succ-s.ful. Nor* f Ik, bv its position on the Chosnpeake, and Memphis, by its po i ion on the Mississippi, offer, through the Virginia and Tennessee railroads, solid inducements to the capital to bo < nli-ied In the proposed freight servile. Nor do we see at present any practical objection to a new fea ture lately brought forward to magnify the advantages of Memphis, and that la, the establishment of a direct s cam service between that city and Galveston, in Teiaa. There is now a line of river boats plying, we believe, between New Orleans and Mobile. The harbor of Gal veston will always prevent it from having a line of steamers direct to Europe. But we really sec no reason why steamers adapted to Gulf navigation may not ascend the Mississippi to Memphis, as there ii plenty of water to that point. The Virginia and Tennessee roads would, in such case, form the ovetjtnd link connecting the steam service from Europe to Norfolk.
