G. nnnaence, have leaded off the Con spiracy to ti ize Washington before the vote as counted, so as to defeat tbe formalities required to complete the election of Lincoln; thtn a Prorisional Government would bare been lormed, and we should bare had double-headed Government, claiming tbe control of armv, nary and treasury. Tbe suspicious time for Secession has gone by. Tbe probability cow is that Mr. Lin coln will be Inaugurated without any at tempt at resistance. For this escape from areer and dif(?rnce yesterday, the country is great'y Indebted to Secretary Holt and General Scott, V .' V '" c i' V' Tbe event shows how far a little - firmness in tbe Government will go. Secession goes wiih a rash when it can be carried' on. by stealing; but when it comes to cold steel and villainons saltpeter, it pauses to consider,' Tcn before a thousand men at Washington, or seventy at Fort Sumter, or even less at Fort Pickens. Codsidering that the shed ding of a tingle drop. of blood will fire 'the whole Southern heart, and precipitate all, tbe border States into the revolution, it it astonitbing bow careful the South are not to abed it. a ' Resignation of Army and Navy Officers— The Duty of Congress. Sine Secession bagan, two lientenant colonels, two majors, eight captains, tea lieutenant and four cadets, belonging to tbe army, from tbe South, bare resigned; also, In the Nary, three captains, three com manders, three pursers, two surgeons, and two assistants, sixteen lieutenants, three masters, and four midshipmen, from the South, bars resigned. ; There are others who are readr to resiga in oaa af notuaA service in deluding the Government in the South being required of them. '' ' ' These resigned officers bare sacrificed their prospects for life, for it is not probable that any will propose to restore officers to their rank in the army and navy, who, whea the Government required their support, took op arms with its enemies. An army and navy to demoralized as that, would be to moDstrous a perversion of what is supposed to be a defense of the Government, that the whole nation would demand the abolition of botb, and that the Government shall depend entirely on loyal volunteers from the people. These officers have sacrificed their profes sion and livelihood to Secession, and hare made a record, which in time will be re garded as a vary dubious spot on the honor of a soldier. Tbe men who led them into this movement still retain their hold upon their offices In Congress, as security against tbe failure, of Secession ; ia which case they will return and assume their seats, and col lect, arrears of pay, leaving the army and navy officers helpless dupes of their calcu lating treachery. So closely was this calculated by the lead ing Secessionists that the movement was ar ranged so as not to take place till Congrest bad assembled and they drawn the $2,500, which was paid to each member at the be ginning', of tbe session ; and with the con nivance of a Secessionist in the Treasury, tbe Southern members drew their pay at once, while, on account of the want of funds in the Treasury, many of the Northern mem bers were put off for weeks. South Carolina bad, at that time, declared herself out of the Union, and could not en dure tbe sight of the Government flag on her foil or in ber harbor ; but her members returned to Congress, drew their $2,500 with tbe utmost loyalty, gathered up their stationery, not omitting a tingle steel pea or box of wafers, and then left the Union. It it the duty of Congress to put all these public officers on an equality before their constituents. Let the members of Congress Le expelled and made to take the same risk that they hare draw n the officers inta. There is said to ba honor among thieves. Let Congress enforce it on the seceded members of CoBgress, and make them deal fairly with their fellows of the army and navy. Bf tides, the "epirit of our institutions" requires this action. Secession has raised a sew issue, which the constituents ef these seceded members have a ritfht to pass upon. Tbey did not elect them to secede ; and they have a right to elect members who will serve. It is the duty of Congress to refer this Question to the constituents of the se-, ceded members. ' What their views will be, when fairly ex pi eased according to constitutional farms, nitj ba judged by tbe fata of CoW, Tloyd and Yancey, who were candidates for, the Secession Conventions ia their respective States, and weia defeated. It Is extremely doubtful if a Secession Congressman could be i ted in any Southern State, eiept, perhaps, Soutn oiilla, By referring this question to the popular Wbunals in the South, Secetsloa would be trie. ,,- ow, merits; and it it probable that the whole question of Seeassioa, coercion and eufbrc meat or to laws, would be thus disposed of. Jt the Governors of ta. seceded States re. fuse to can suctions, wnshe Congressiaoal vacancies ars created, the psopian tlu) au trios will order them, and thea it wihv, jr the JIoum to decide whether it will waive the informality in consideration of the cir cumstasc. And the vacancies ia the Sea- : Worships will at once create an Irrepressible conflict In tbe Southern Legislatures for the succession, which will distract the counsels of Secession. , . -r-. Here is a wy of taring' thUnkri per fectly in accordant with the "spirit of out institutions;" which, we taks it, is, that Government exists by the consent of the govemfd. (Th Is would be a settlement by Mir! supreme tribunal, the ballot-box. Dow cmv Congress, with propriety, talk of enforc es tbe laws, until it bat Brat referred we cstttof its own seceded members to their constituents, and tbut fillgd up its own rep ret entatiba" ? ' How CS it propose to enforce tbe lawa until it has first purged Its ftlf, from members who have openly procla tned their instigation of leisures of . Gvernmeat forts and property, and who are in open rebellion? Let us see if there are any Northern raem bers who tll tote to retain deserters, traitors and rebels In office. The Duty of Congress. Death of Hon. John C. Wright. The' decease of the Hon. John C. Wright, of this city, delegate from the State of Ohio to the Border donference now in session at Washington, wet announced to bis fauaflj by telegraph hat evening, immediately after its occurrence. Tbe cause of bit death, was psraljFis. Judge Wright Was born In the town of Weatherefield, Connecticut, in 1784, and whs (events-six years-, of - age. - He learned the trade of a printer in Letchfield, in the same State, frffm Whence he removed to Tiov, New York, where he was admitted to tl e bar, and engaptd in the practice of the law, editing a newspaper at the same time. ,. After several years residence at Troy, he : removed to Steubenvijle, In this State, wh( re he mpidly rose to professional emi nence atd reputation. llr. Wrijcbt was during three terms, from 1823 to 1829, a member of Congress, in which he eijoycd the reputation of beiDga ready and efficient debater, and a shrewd and act ive politician. In 1825, be took a prominent part in the exciting debates upon the establ ishment of rulet for the election of a Presi dent by tbe House of Representatives, upon tbe Panama Congress, and the reorganization of the National Judiciary. '' During that period, no man in Congress wot perhaps so well able as Mr. Wright to cope with that celebrated dialectician, John Randolph, of Roanoke, and to employ against him with effect those weapons of repartee and sarcasm of which that eccentric individual arrogated tbe almost exclusive proprietorship. In 1S31-2 Mr. Wright was elected one of tbe judges of the Supreme Court of Ohio, which position he held until 1836, during which time, bis decisions, did much to settle tbe rules of. legal pratke in the State, which before that period bad been unusually loose and indefinite; and a volume of reports of bis decisions, published after his retirement, was accepted as standard authority by the profession up to the time of the adoption of tbe code now in force, by which the old forms of action and procedure were super seded. . r!, ., - ..( ; . Before the close of his term of judicial Service, Judge Wright moved to Cincinnati, and after the decease of Charles Hammond, Eeq., about tbe year 1815, be became editor of the Cincinnati Gauttt, which position, he, continued to bold until, the year 1858.. "' As a member of Congress, Judge Wright was an advocate of a rigid adherence to the Constitution and the confinement of legisla tive action strictly within its rules. As ia lawyer, he was rather acute than profound, being better fitted for the contests of the bar than tbe deliberations of the bench; and, as a party leader and editor) bf was peculiarly cautious and conservative. Gifted with a good temper and excellent conversational powers, be was an interesting companion, with large runa oi anecdote, and a store of instructive recollections of the great men with whom for many years he had been as sociated. For : several years past, Judge Wright has been exhibiting the evidences of advancing age, and has suffered from a par tial loss of sight. His recent acceptance of the post of delegate to the Border Confer ence and the fatigues which it entailed was probably too much for an already weakened system, and he bas passed away. Congress and the Morrell Tariff. , Congress are pursuing the even tenor of their way, and improving the withdrawal of the disturbing element from Congress, by putting through the necessary .business; all of which is creditable; but we fear they are complicating matters by urging the Morrell Tariff Bill now. We hare ex pressed our opinion on that measure, and believe that it ought never to past; bat it is especially. objectionable 'al this time. The Government is not now strong enough to stand such a measure. It would give to the South a pretence of a grievance against the Union, on which the Union came near being dif solved once; while at present they are not able themselves to state any grievance. It would give the South a capital with which to negotiate for the intervention of France, by offering ber a free-trade alliance, against ahigh protective tariff.' This foreign interference in our affairs is the worst thing we have to apprehend at this time; and it is known that South Carolina bas Commission ers In France seeking for this'interrention; 1 The Morrell Tariff Bill would not help the revenue for the present emergency, and it would create much disaffection in New York City. It would be far better to carry along by loans until we see whether we hare a Government, and by calling in the surplus revenue which was loaned to the States; and by making requisitions on the States for such additional amounts as are needed. This is power which the Goverment should always use as a recourse for emergencies; and the present crisis should be improved to establish this power by usage, without which the Government would - be almost helpless In a war with any foreign nation. Democratic Repudiation of National Obligations, at Columbus. Tbe Democrats in tbe House at Columbus Tuesday did a very mean thing, which, as far as it could go, was anmltigated repudi ation of a debt due from the 8tate of Ohio to tbe United States Goraument. Tbe State received $2,700,000 of the surplot revenue of the United States in 1836, agreeing to return it when called for. ' In its financial distress tie Government bas now called on the Stat to aid it by guaranteeing the payment of boads to the amount due from each, - 1 A bill passed tbe Senate for this purpose. Tbe Secretary of the Treasury has stated tbe absolute necessity or Immediate relief to save tbe Government from dishonor. Aa effort was made Tuesday to pass tbe bill la tbe lower bouse of th Legislature, by tut. pension of tbe rules, which was. defeated by the Democrats. This financial distress was l,oueM upon the country by tbe im potency and rascau, 0( m Democratic Administra tion. This action of the Democrats would seem to prove that the rascality was but tbe settled policy of tbe whole party, in order to break down tbe Government. ! As far as they could go, they went for State repudiation; and their action could bare no other intelligent purpose tbaa to dishonor the United State Government by leaving It without resource to pay its obliga tions. Here we have State repudiation and National repudiation, adopted Into the policy of the Democratic Party of Ohio. And this position doet not appear to hare been taken accidentally, nor . hastily, nor by the action ofasmalljfactioBof the party'; but it Is in strict accordance with the platform, adopted at tbe reoent Democratic Stat Convention, that the tupport of tbe National Gorernment mult pot be thought of, until the .North has discharged some indefinable obligation to the' South. ' ; The Spectacle We Present. It would teem from a variety of facts and intimations, that the policy of Mr. Bu chanan bas been to prevent a forcible col lision between the insurrectionists and the troops of the Gorernment until be is out of office, and to prepare the way for such a col lision as soon as possible afterward. Such a course, in a day when things were called by their tight names, would bare been ac counted treason, inere nare oeen periods in tbe history of the country when it would have rendered tbe guilty party instantly in famous. How it happens that such is not the case now, is a question the answer to which would open a a ide field for the anx ious consideration of tbe statesman and the patriot. Wc bar men among us wbo do not hesitate to approve .Jthe course oi the President who really prcfesa.td hope that hostilities against the Government w iU begia on tbe 4th of March ; and who, so f.ir as they are able, give tbeir influence to push on the South to open war, instantly oa the inaugu ration -of Mr. Lincoln; who hope if their declarations are to be believed to see the Government overthrown, by force, and all refift its overthrow defeated and subdued.,; This it the spirit of anarchy, the practica effects of which may best be fleen in the history of the so-called Republics of Sauth "America. The question is before us: Do we find that in tbeir condition to render us rationally desirous to imitate it? Hot our boasted Anglo-Saxon civil character degen erated to tbe standard of (hat of the mongrel Spaniards of Mexico and New Granada? We are certainly getting up aVery correct imi tation of their style of proceeding. We have among us those who talk, write and print, and, what is more, profess a willingness to act, according to their model. We talked, not very long since, of establishing a pro tectorate ever Mexico : Would it be unfair now for Mexico to propose to return the favor, and establish a protectorate over us? There were at that time those who suspected that the propensity of si republican people to Cqretn other States was evidence1 of a grow ing Incapacity to govern themselves; and, perhaps, they were in tbe right. There is ground for fear that the people of the United States will hare to begin at the rudiments, and learn. ts art of self-government over again.' Men are certainly tery oblivions' to the ends for which Gorernments are con structed, when they are able to look with pleasure, or even with indulgence, upon acts on the part of those to whom its Adminis tration is entrusted tending directly to its destruction. ' j j, Hitherto we bare been prone to boast of the respect ip which the United States Vaa bolden by the rest of tbe civilized world. We were the model1 Republic. We had tested by experiment, the question of the. capacity of mankind . for salf-goraroment, and bad realized a most triumphant result. Tyrapts trembled onthehr thrones at the thought of the influence Of our' example upon the human race, and discovered in our prosperity the presage of their own deca dence. The lolling millions of the old Con tinents saw in our growing greatness the harbinger of their own, emancipation. Tha past and the present paused to contemplate the march of institutional freedom ' in America the one all surprise, the other all anticipation. What a spectacle wt were, and what a spectacle we are 1 "The most splendid fabric of human, gov ernment upon which the sun ever shone," is being administered upon as a a horde of wolves administer upon a dead carcass. There does .not seem to be an agency anywhere, gifted , with a spirit even to protest. . The majorities in ., both bouses of Congress are, in sympathy, with the enemies of the Union. There is not even to poor a thing at a political party that has the moral courage to stand squarely up for an Administration of the Gorernment in ac cordance with the organic law of the land. What a condition the greatest, freest, most virtuous and intelligent people upon tbe earth I : ' 1 ' Am Kxcbllimt Sxatsb. H. O. Carr, of Union Springs, N.

Washington, February 13, SecrttiryDit sent Another letter to-day to Mr. Sherman saying it was indispensable that be should tq-day give notice of a loan of $8,000,000, ia order that the Government might Bveet pay. mentson the 1st proximo. 'More than $5,000,000 Treasury-notes hare been 'redeemed out of current Mrenues. About $2,000,000 more fall due before the 4th of March, making nearly $8 000,000 needed to meet public wants before that day. More than one- third of tbe revenue derived from ostoms is paid in Treasury-notes, dne at future day, and the present embarrass dents of the Treasury arises from the oper ations of a prope? system, which compe'g the Government to anticipate the payment of its debts out of its current funds. As be bas de cided to issue notice of a public loaa, be Sikt that the bill reported yesterday be not acted upon. ' Ex-Secretary Floyd publishes a statement lliat the report of the Committee of the House .is an ez-parte arraignment of his. official conduct upon ex-parle testimonytaken in secret in his absence.

He promises to meet tha report of the com mittee with a full statement., .

Nothing was visible to excite the least fear, and perfect good or der was preserved. Governor Hicks, of Maryland, was exam ined to-day by the Special Committee. His belief that a conspiracy existed ia connection with the Capitol was caused by anonymous letters and newspaper articles, and that such did not exist in Maryland but in other States, and that in the beginning of January he was satisfied there were existing organ izations with a view of illegal interference with the Federal authorities and the seizure of public property, but for some time past be was satisfied that they were abandoned. The Special Committee unanimously agree that whatever hostile intents may hare ex isted toward Washington for six woeks past, there has been no appearance or vestige of such. lion. John C.
