Extra Sruluu «l the t sited State* Congreu.
T:c Net* Orltaus J'leayunt is correct ia saving that
the Lincoln Administration, at the commencement of its
*\ st.ncc, is involved in difficulties ol such a formidable
character as no former Administration ever encountered,
and that the? every day increase and become more fear
fa'. So far the Administration has exhibited no evidence
of its ability successfully to grapple wi h aod obviate the
• i rarrassments of iu position, and appearances indicate
that it will prove umqual to the duties it has a-.-umed.—
Lacking the support of the great body of the people, and
d - itutc of the confidence which gives strength to pi
viotic purpose, the Lincoln Administration is utterly
powerless, and it would not surprise us if, after a while,
t‘o announcement were made that, forced by the pres
h .re of public opinion and ire own inability to extiicate
the country from evils brought upon it by the eucce?3 of
the Black Republican party, the Administration abdicat 'd
th? Government. It will not pursue that course as long
as it can cling to power; but events are not at all un
liaelv to create an inexorable necessity fur such an inglo- i
rious termination of its short-lived and troubled existence.
We need no: partied ir'zc the many difficult questions |
which claim the attetriou of the Administration, with i
wh eh it must deal, and which imperatively demand ad 1
justuaent without delay. The numerous important ques
tions aiisicg from the secession of the States cow fonu
i: g the Southern Confederacy, to say nothing of others, |
are alone more than, iu our opinion, it is competent to
arrange satisfactorily to the people of the United State*. ;
• Lincoln,” as his supporters confess,‘‘is powene** to car
ry out the policy which he laid down in his inaugural.—
He can but use the present resources of the Govern
ment; but they are inadequate to the emergency. He
era but enforce existing laws; but they are insufficient,
and not adapted to the special and peculiar circumstances
that have arisen. He has little money, too, few cava!
vessels, not troops enough, and is, therefore, nnable to
meet the practical difficulties that sunound him. He
cannot hold, possess and occupy the forts,and collect the
revenue iu the secedent States without a grant of cew
powers and larger resources.” Iu this dilemma, inde
cision marks the course of his administration. The Cab
inet evidently know not what to do: they appear to be
uj »b!e to agree on any pOl'ey. Whatever course they
take, destruction awaits them. If they recogniz; the
evsu nee of the Southern Confederation, and evacuate
the forts, it will be a confession to the people and to the
world of the consequences which have resulted from tbc
per-is'ent injustice tf the party that placed them iu pow
er, and it will at once deprive them of all support f cm
any quarter. The conservative people of the North w j
utterly refuse to give any count* uance to those who
have brought such evil upon the country, who have sub
j -oted the I'niou to Mich loss of elements of its greatness,
such detriment to its power, such humiliation. The war
pvrtv of the Black K -public*! s, fod- J ia their fanatic
designs, a-'d maddened by disappointment, will bitterly
denounce those whom it placed iu power, and whom it
ex e- te l to execute its insane decree*.
Seeing and appreci ,:i: g the difficulties by which they
are environed, the Cabinet for the present contents i'
aelf perforce with inacdon. This it will find equally a*
d -truotive to it as any p sitive policy. u Delays are
dangvro'a*.” and so the Id:.coin Admit.i-tration will find
bat to recog.iz • "Vv ssion. a id not to dc .1 with it as or
gan i d r. -i ame to the IVited Sta cs Government, is
a po'.lvV t!a' will pl.-as.- nobody, sai'-fy nobody. Oi; ■
result of the pc-l cv of i iction will be that under the
opera1 io:i of tlio Northern and Southern tariff*, the corn
's -
era pirw. T ie North will be impoverish d and tie
South curie’ed. Can the Lincoln admit -tration sut
vive such nroof of the injury it, and the party it reprr
s -ut*, has brought upon the country ?
T:ie people of the Nor h are becoming alive to tie
th.«a-eL.tg aspect of cllairs. They begin to s*e tie
ru u to all their great iuter sta which is Impending, and,
i:t their perplexity, they are crying aloud for an extra
session of Congress to modity the tariff The coercion
p^rty are also ' rging upon I. i io’n the necessity for en
extra actios, so that force measures may be adopted.—
It seems lLat au extra sc*-ion is inevitable, but Liucolu
and S* ward do uot like the idea. They do not wu-lt to
be saddled with the additional responsibilities that might
b-* imposed upon them. There i* a difficulty iu the wf y
of cahi* g an «xtra session, which does uot appear to be
much take:; into account, though it is not to easily ol<
vitted. A contemporary thus sets if forth :
With the tth of M ,rch exp'red the terms of 51 mem
ber* of Congress, noiie of whose successors w.U be elect
ed before the la'ter par: of X *y, aud very many of them
not before September. Thirty-three members were le.-t
with the weeding State*. This makes eighty-four mem
1, ra who will be wanting, or fourteen States whi*h
would not be represented in the extra session o' Cot -
g - ess, which o .r Republican fr ends are clamoring to
hjve *ad-d. None of the secedirg S ates, of course,
aud on'v three oi the Border Sta*. Maryland, Deli
wart* u?*J M -sourt—woi.iJ oe reprt-u iu a. * irgini.t,
Kentucky, Tmoe .-ee and North Carolina would be ex
eluded. The mea*are* which are d* m iuuvii at the
0f the extsaoniit arv C©ngre>« would h week a* rsil
woM materially than any o;> ers, the States ju>t
named. A»d yet they would have no voice in it.
As the Albany Argus very forcibly remarks, “A mi
nority President, with a sectional Cabinet, carrying 011
t*«o force pol.cy of a minor* y of a full Cougrcss, would
ins-sent an unexampled ‘ps-Va-le. *
The ladlauTtusI Ktuhcaal: lueut.
Two publication* from promiceul participants in t! :*
rut .terious transaction have lately apptared in t! e pub
|,e punts. The first is from Bailey, in who-e charge the
Loads ueie.end bv ** horn the,actual xiHUaction was made,
a i>l 'be other trow Russell. the apparent beneficiary of
the uaneaction.
Mr. Bailey’- card 1J in response to the publication
made some weeks ago by Ex-secretary klovJ, and is v< ry
sjvere upon tba: much wron<^d or much sinning “old
public functionary.” Mr. Ku-.-kI* makes a long sta'em. ut
ot the circumstance* under which the bond wore taken,
ife * »ya that the origin ot his d fficuities was the re t s i
of the government to pay a claim whijb it diepuL-w,
amounting with interest to about 11,340,0.t). While he
w \« ecnl>arra#*ed by this he formed the acquaintance of
Cl-vdard Bailey, who lent him t' fi at imtiimentof the
bon is for hypothecation. A- Mrs time Rutoril says that
he had no idea of the real owcer f j- «f the hoods, but
,v*r ,-o»-d them to be property in Bailey’s cootioL
At e; borrowing these,*!ocks declined and R MSell found
that be rau-t make an additional deposit with those wt o
hsd la-ued money ca the bonds to keep up “the margin,”
qt the bonds would be sold, lie then learned, as he
a it* for the tirst uute, that the bonds b,longed to the gov
e-iiment. Unable to toko them up and droadir.g the re
mit of exposure, he *tw no way out of the di emma ex
cept to take another supply of the bonds, to protect bie
credit unnl Corgrce* should vote to pay tis firm the
amount claimed as due. Having hypothecated the *v
coud parcel, acJ stock* still cJuuuuing to decline, and
tbccrL-us havirg come on :u the tn aatiaf, he deter mi .
ed to throw both pare Is of bonds upon the market “ami
,-vea to obtain and eell o'hrrs,” in order to repurchase
the whole when the nu;ket tad reached still lower tig
<cce. Th.i scheme was frustrated by the public aT wal
made by Godard Bailey.
Mr. KiKd'w pout ion, therefore, i* that he took the
bond, in '- —* tirst in tance innocently, though be does not
expliiu bow be imagined that B .ilcy should have in bis
control bonds to tho amount of $130,*!”", to lie lent ro
frrely; that the second parcel was taken with his eye*
open, in the hope of recovering the who!.; and that a
third parcel would have been taken, if the operation*
ii id no', been interrupted. Ur. Russel! does not mike
file e'ory tally exactly with the evidence however, for
,sat skewed teat the bot da were uken at three distinct
time#—in Ju'y, September and December, 1 *w).

Kentura jr and tUe Peace Confereacc.
Tlio Kentucky Peace Commissioners have made tao
reports to Governor Magoffin. The mejority report is
-igued by Messrs. WicklilTc, Morchcad, Bell and Guthrie,
aod the minority by Me-nra. Clay and Butler.
All the Commissioners went to Washington prepared
to support Mr. Criliouii ti’s prepositions. When the
clause extending slavery to future acquired territory
came up, however, the m jori'y finding that to insist
upon it would prevent harmony, agreed to the Franklin
plan, thinkirg that “ it would be regretted by every pa
“ tiiot if any honest at d pea.vful settlement of our pre
“ scut dtffieulies should be prevented bv insisting upon
4‘a provision d.viding territory that the United States
44 did not own and may uevtr acquire." In like manner
they fiually give their support to the whole of the Frank
lin proposition, and express a belief that if it is finally
offered to the people by Congress it will be adopted.
The minority, however, felt bound to support the Crit
tsuden plan, and eppo-ed the Frauklin proposition
throughout. “They ng*et meet sincerely to have to
‘•say that they have returned home with abated confi
“ deuce and diminished hopes of satisfactory adjust
44 mer.t." T^eir report is written in moderate terms, and
apparently in good spirit.
What Arkansas lias Hone.
The State Convention ot Arkansas, on the 20th, u'.t,
as our renders have already been apprised, adopted an
ordinance to be submitted to the people at an election to
b«* held on the third day of August, providing that the
people may then determine for themselves whether the
State shall secede separately and without delay, or shall
abide by and co-operate in the action of the Border
slave State-; and at the same time the C invention ap
pointed Commissioners to the Border Slave States Con
vention, proposed to be held at Frankfort, Kentucky, on
the 2Tib ol May. This action on the part of the Con
vention wasa WtapratnlH between the Union tind Secet
s on men in that body. The following sections of the
ordiname adopted by them give the gi»l ol thtir action :

the State, now in force, prescribing the manner of hold

Tne mere mention of such results is a refutation ef the

VIRGINIA STATE CONVENTION.
Wkdnksday, Apmi 1861.
Tfie Convention assembled a- In o’clock, A. M.
I’raverby Rev. Mr. Willis, of the Baptist Church.
THE SlBJK'T ov TAXATION.
Tho resolutions submitted by Mr. Willey, on thelf«'.h,
ill, were taken up, and
Mr. STUART, of Doddridge, being entitled to the
loor, addre>?ed the Convention in vindication of the
jeople of the West front imputations of uusoundness; in
ulvocacv of an ad valorem tax upon negroes, and in op
oo-ition to a dissolution of tbe Union. H i was proceed
t g to show that his people wrre not “Submissionists,"
ivuen the President’s gavel descended, and the hour for
fxecuting the order of the dav announced
Mr. STUART said “I yield" and accordingly suspctid
jl his remarks.
VKI1ERAL RELATIONS.
The Convention theu molved i*-elf' into a Committee
of the Whole, on the subject of Federal Relations, and
Mr. SCOTT, of Fauquier, proceeded to present bis
views. After expatiating at some lerg’h upon the diver
■ itv of interests, climate, and soil, between the Eastern
and Western portiot s of the State, and that portion bor
deting upon the Potomac, he declared that in anv mea
sure which the Convention should adopt, it is their duty
to consult the interests of the entire State, and to endea
vor so to stape the action tin*, may be determined upon
ns to promote the interests of all sections as far as po -
GU ‘. Ttte reason they could not agree upon a line of
police was to to found in tho diversities of interests to
Hull'll Ilf UBU BIIUUCU.
We have been told that we have reached a point when
we must decide between an adhe cuce to a Northern
Confederacy, or a union with the Southern Confederacy,
if this be true, he had no hesitation in s»ying that hia
choice was already made ilis sympathies and instincts
attach him to the South, but he did not believe that we
were reduced to that narrow alternative.
Commemiug upon tho report of the Committee on
Federal Relations, Mr. S. said that the proposition to
amend the Constitution concedes the necessity of amend
m nt, a:.d the necessity of amendment concedes the
fur her fact that it is unsafe for the border States to con
tinue their association with the North without such
amendments, otherwise these propositions of the Com
mi'tee would be the idlest ol farces, declaring in ell’ect,
that if these dtminds are rejected, we will remain quiet,
and remain sufjcct to the domination of the North.
Mr. SCOTT tlien spoke of the necessity of united ac
tion ou the part of all the border slave States, and pro
ceded to advocate, at considerable lei gilt, a plan of
co-operation, which he believed would lead to the re
construction of the Onion. He continued to present bis
argument until 2 o’clock, when the Committee took a re
cess.
AFTERNOON SESSION.
The Conventicnfeasseinbled at 4 o’clock.
Mr. SCOTT arose and stand that he declined to pro
ceed with his argument in consequence of the hoarseness
ot his voice.
Mr. RICHARDSON, of Hanover, then took the floor,
and presented his views upon the questions before the
(’onvenUon. He advocated the immediate secession of
Virginia a< the only true policy in the present crisis. Be
fore concluding h:s remarks, he moved that the Commit
tee rise, which was agreed to.

A wealthy gentleman of Decatur county, Ga., author

AFKA1RS AT PKN8AC0LA.
An officer on board the United States steamer Brook
lyn, anchored off Pensacola, has written a private letter
to a gentleman in Philadelphia, extracts from which are
published iu the Inquirer. We copy the following :
When we first arrived, the orders were to lay nil and
on under sail, but having bren blown out some four or
five times in heavy gales, the flag-captain, (Capt. Adams,
of the Sabine,) came to the conclusion it would not pay,
and so ordered us all to come to an anchor. The frigato
Sabine, sloop St Louis, and the oil Brooklyn, are now
just outside of the bar. Not an officer nor a man lias
been allowed to go ashore. Boats, however, come off
to u®, briogirg provisions and papers, Ac. The seces
sionists have possession of Forts McRut and Barrancas,
and the navy yard. Fort McRca is an old Spanish fort,
and mounts but a few guns; Barrancas is small aud
round, with but few guns also. From there up to the
yard, there are six or eight small 112-pounders mounted
on the beach; these present the only obstacle to our en
try. Fort Pickens is in possession of the federal troops,
and is likely to remain so. It is a large new fort, and
will mount 212 heavy gur.s. They have as many
mounted now as they require, and it is in a most won
durlul state of defense, and capable of resisting an
attack of five thousand men. It also commands t) e
other forts and the yard. We can throw the troops wo
have on boar i in th re without any trouble. It is im
possible for them to keep this fort from being reinforced,
if nece s\ry;all we want is the order to enter and retake all
tbc government prop >rtv—wc could do it in a very short
time. In fact, I dou’t think they would attempt to resist
us, for they well know that we can shell the whole place
without their hurting us much.
MILITARY SPIRIT IS MISSISSIPPI.
The Holly Springs (Miss ) Herald learns that the county
of Chickasaw in that State has already ten companies of
volunteer soldiers ready to be mustered into the service
of the State. It adds'that, in addition to these, “t! e
county has a regal riy officered and drilled company ol
young ladies, who have pledged themselves, in the event
that the men are called into service, to protect their
homes and families during their absence, and see that
the crops arc properly cultivated, and nil crops raised
not only for the support of thecouutry, but of the armies
of Mississippi.”
