THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: THCBJOAY KxnM ?T, IVH. ftptrit of tho n?ralM Pr*as.

Fortunately for tfce Uvea of any aoeh mob, the gubernatorial an thorlfles of both Virginia and Maryland are pre p*nd to divferae any auch mob, congregated for anyeveb porpoee Governor Letcber la open and loud hi bit denunciations of the advtoe of th?

If not more, in the District of Colombia capable of bearing arms, not one hundred of whom sympathize with any such purpoee of tbaa Initiating tbe proposed civil war in their midst The inatlnctof "self*preservation, the flrtt Uw of nature," will induce them, the Emptirtr and Ezamxntr may rely on It, to arm and organize for the due reception of any auch mot-invasion of Washington city as they (the newspaper* aforesaid) propose. What Washing ton city unanimously desires, Is the future security of aonthern rights In tbe Union. Not It* destruc tion, by armed violence, beginning with tbe sack of Itself?the Federal Metropolis. It does not fitncy any such plan of seeking to produce the "southern unity" which the two noisy disunion Richmond papers profess to be seeking to attain. In truth, that such an idea should be broached, proves only that those whe broach it are ntterlv erased, and are, therefore, more than all otbt-rs. unsafe as leaders and counsellors of the people in timea like these. Apropos of Pittsburg's lelzure of the rannon. She. more than any other polai of the Northwest, has been declaiming against secession, on account of the neresaity for the Inviolable freedom of the navigation of the Mississippi and 1U tributaries. Yet she would be first to violate It. Who doubts for an instant that if recent accounts of her doing* there turn oat correct, that equally hot blood and hot heads in Louisiana and Mississippi will seize the first richly freighted Pittsburg steamboat within their reach, under the pretence of retalia tion for that city's seizure of the cannon * Now, how long can such things as we explain above go on without reducing the whole country Into Um condition nf ansrrkv that >>* throughout Mexico for >o many year* put* la It not worth while for those who will be the loaers by Its Inauguration among as, to make a reallv aerioua efort to nip it in th? bud, by coacart on their part. a?4 action in pursuance of that concert worthy of freemen descended from our reyolu tionary sire*1 Tbi Housk Committee ot Thibtt-threi ? Intense interest exists here in the probable action of this Committee in Its session of to-day. Almost all seem to imagine that this will be the last time on which lia members will come together. That i* to say, that its Republican members will per sist in refusing all overtures from their conserva tive and other colleagues upon It for the aettle mentof the troubles on the baals of Mr. Critten vacii |.(u|m>iiodi{ ina ion the latter will therefore decline to meet them thereafter for further eonaulutlon. Information now in our possssslon leads u? to a more hopeful conclusion, however We know that Mr. Corwln by no means despairs. yet. of a report concurred in by majorities of all the parties represented In the Committee. If such a report be made, the trouble will be over from the Instant of Its presentation to the House, and those at the South who would destroy the I'aion for the sake of Its destruction, will be utterly powerless for further mischief In every Southern State except South Carolina. Else where at the South, their power ia based wholly upon the prevalence of the idea that the Repub lican party will have no settlement of the que* ..v? wuuuui ciTii wtr i Diiouce exploded,mod the black cloud hanging over the country1* fu ture at once vanlahes. Bbxatoe Bkwaio - We apprehend that the New York Herald la correct (la lta laaue of yes terday) la drawing from Mr. steward's recent New England dinner speech the conclusion that be la preparing to abow a willingness for the set tlement of the trouble* In the I'nlon, and without r:vll war Circumats rices that have come to our knowledge within the lait twenty-four houri lead us to hope that he will ere the close of the t irrent week counsel s settlement upon the basis proposed by Mr. Crittenden One word tu th*t way from him will Instantly settle the control versy, dethroning the dlstimonlats p-.r tt at the Fouth, who?e power, after all. is but th? r?>it 'he universal belief at the South that the Repub lican party has made up ita mind for war to the knife frcna the Mart, upon the constitutional rights ?f the slaveholding states If in Committer or Thibti-tbibi break up. aa is bow'apprehended by ao many, rn to morrow or next day, all Ita members except the RtpabHeaos and Messrs Davit, of Md., and Kthsridgo, of Tean.. will doubtless publish an sddress in twenty-four hours thereafter, going to tbo country upon tte Crittenden plan for the settle ment of the troubles, which now bids fair to be acooplod by the Baltimore Convention of border lltTtlkOlilBC staid PTODOMd br UI -.1-1? as the terms upon which they will continue In the Union with the New England and other ultra a be llttoa States, after the cotton States may have with drawn from II.

In 1832 the Constitution of South Carolina was iineuded so as that naturalized citizens were rqulred to take the additional oath of their true tUeglance to South Carolina ao long aathey might continue citizens thereof Sometimes in another method?that of the test oath Mr. Brown also said that some period must be idopted He did not mean nor contemplate natlng involuntary citizens of those accidentally iomiciled in the State at the period of the adop tion of the Ordinance of Recession.
