He adopted this system to deplete the treasury against the urgent advice of his wise predecessor. His next exploit worthy of notice was to seek to Induct capitalists to loan the Government ten millions of dollars, when knowing that if be succeeds in the scheme for the Government's dcStrnction he was tbcn laboring to conanmmste, those who might advance that money would be utterly ruined by so doing. His third notable exploit as an executive officer here, was to absquatulate the moment after the beggary of the Treasury by and through hisflnan -? * a? 1 j? 1 1-1 V* a rial icoieTrnicr.u BJia aiiumva iiihio cviuuiiku, turne<l public attention Intensely upon the fact that the national and financial state of the times was attributable, most indeed, to hirn. So soon as it became c!ear as light that his entire command of the columns of the Constitution newspaper. and bis ceswlesj correspondential represeutations that the extremists should now destroy the Government, (the latter borrowing their Influence wholly from his official position,) he turned till and ran away from his late post' W* submit that u? Is the properest statesman conceivable to attend tbe South Carolina secession convention in thechararter cf outside adviser and generally lobby conductor of the scheme to break up the Government and make the border slaveholdtng Suite* the teat of bloody civil war, that the South may hereafter hold towards the North the sentiments solie celyenunclated In the United States Senate by Messrs 1 ver?on and Wigfall and through the press, by tbo Charleston Mertmtjf. The Sober Secosd Thought .?The country's hope is now, that the sober second thought of the people mar come to tLe rescue of our common country from the perils that environ it. The sectional politicians on eltDer hand have rushed it headlong on tbe rocks of revolution. Every public man North and :*outh who turns his face against some frank and prompt settlement of the trouble, is engaged ia playing upon popular passions for the advancement of his individual fortunes?every one of them; and they are one and all alike to be avoided by the true patriot, as though their breath were poisonous Their number is but few comparatively. Though they have at this time, by an unfortunate combination of circumstance*, the power to whirl and borry the masses on to the poiat of the destruction of the best government that man ever lived under, we yet feel confident that sober second thought will interfere and rescue the lives, fortunes, liberties and happiness of the people North, South, East, and West, from the evil consequences of having trusted such men Time only is wanted to check the consummation? the wreck and ruin of all existing American rights and interests taev are so aeliUhlv working out Time?a very brief time?will suffice to open tbe eyes of the people everywhere to the fact that these leader* are false and dangerous teachers indeed Once thoroughly understood, and from Maine around to Oregon they will be held to rigid accountability for the mischief they have worked, beyond *11 question. A Ciotrs ii thkSxxatx Chamber?F.very a?at la tbe galleries of tbe !*enate Chamber w&a H.led before 12 m tc-d*y, In the expectation that Senator Wade would make a very violent ceercion sp?e?h. He had not taken the floor when the Star't report went to press The fjct that he Las heretofore been ore of the most vehement and really violent advocates of abolition doctrines in the Senate chamber, of course gave r se to the universal impression here that his purpose was to follow the example of Messrs. Hale, Wlgfall and lverson in throwing tar rather than water on the raging sectional flames. Hence the remarkable public curiosity to bear him, in the expectation that -'a high time" (of words) would be the upshot of bis speech. His particular friends, howevrr, confidently assert that bis tone is to be remarkably moderate, ana mn lasvaa 01 lua.n^ thousands or thonsanda to tbe vast army of aeceaaiontata already existing In tbe South, it will be likely to have a contrary efert.

Being univer ally recognised as a wise, good and sincerely patriotic statesman by all of all parties here, th< belief that tbe country bad suddenly lost the counsels of such a man In suck a crisis, wai sutlcientto intensely Increase tbe excitement then raging In Washington.

Wednesday and Thursday of next week were set apart, on motion of Mr. Graen, for the consideration of territorial business.

Mr. Barrett introduced a bill for removing the I' S. Araenal from th* ritr of St. I.null: ref?>rr??d to tbe Committee on Military Affairs. Wht Thit Wawt Civil Wit ?We presume that few here who trouble themselves to note closely tbe developments of tbe views and designs of those at the South who prefer disunion to any guarantee of southern rights In th? Union, fail to comprehend the fact that none will be more disappointed than they, If civil war falls to follow the secession of South Carolina. Else, they fear that their cherished scheme of an entire Southern Confederacy may, after all, be defeated by the refiisal of tbe border slaveholdlpg States to trust their future In the keeping of such statesmen as Mrun tvermon Tnnmha j?nH Kelt! At I J ** -fS- ? ----- ? regretable at the fact is, it Is now becoming to plain that none but the wilfully blind can fail to tee it, that civil war thus forma tbe ground-work of tbe policy for the immediate future, of those who assume to launch the extreme South upon the uncertain sea of immediate and separate State secession . l?7"Since Caleb CusLin^ denied that he authorized the hoisting of the Palmetto (lag on one of his ships, the Charlestonians have discontinued the sutecriptions to give him a testimonial, and tbe money is returned to the subscribers.

' We are of opinion that the policy of a 'masterly inactivity,' with reference to them, is tbe true one for tbe present?that is to say, until onr Convention nas passed her ordinance of secession? due notice thereof been given to the Government at W esL.ngtoo. and a reasonable time allowed that Government for t&e withdrawal of tbeir iroopa rnra, 11 iuck iroops are uoi withdrawn, they mast be driven out, be the cost what It may " Tbe belief la however expreaaed that the Government will not attempt to hold them; but it la added . "If in thli expectation we should be mistaken, however,and the bloody alternative of an ncaladt left to us. w? will accept it Bnt let tbe Government at Washington bear it in mind, that, as we will ask none?so, w icill give no quarter And, God defend tbe right!" The New York Evening Post of Saturday publishes a letter written from the wife of an officer ststloned at Fort Moultrie to her sist-.r in New York, which says : ' Within a few da vs we beer?and fromsomanv ources that we cannot doubt it?that theCharleatonians are erecting twro batteries, one ju?t oppo lie u? ii a u?ie viuagr, juoum ricuani, and another on tbe end of this island; and they dare the Commander to interfere wlill- they are getting reidy to jigkt iixty mm * * * The soldiers here deserve great credit; though they know what an unequal number Is coming to massacre them, yet they ar? in good spirit* and will fight desperately Our Commander saya he never saw ??b a brave little band I feel desperate myself Our only hope is in God.

Light Thbocoh the Gloom.?u F,'1 we presume Mr. Fulton in person, writing to tue Baltimore Amtrican from this city, says: " There Is one feature of good promise that has transpired since the adjournment of Congress, the telegraphic announcement of a letter from Senator Toomb* Indicating a disposition to listen to t?rms of compromise. Heretofore h? was for unconditional secession, and talked of drawing tbe sword and throwing away the scabbard. ItTs regarded as sn evidence of the growth of the sentiment In Georgia, advocated by Mr. Stephens, to ght the battles of the South within tbe Union Another good omen Is the defeat of the Rbett party in tbe election by the Legislature of Socth Carolina of tbe Hon. F. W. Pickens > ? Governot f of tbe State. Mr. Rbett was tbe candidate of the [ moat violent secessionists, and fbilingr to elect bim they united on Mr. Johnson, but be was defeated by twenty votes. Mr. Pickens was one of tbe strongest opponents of nullification, an old whig, ' and until recently a firm friend of tbe Union. He has recently coincided with tbe secealonists, but only to a moderate extent, not being willing to plunge tbe State headlong into civil war and r bloodshed. He was regarded as tbe anti-war ' candidate, and bis election )? a bitter defeat to the Rhett fiction, who bad joined so heartily with Mr. Vancey in bis project of precipitating " revolution on the cotton States."
