THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: TUESDAY : January 1, 1*61. spirit ?< thr n*rala| 1'res*. The ImttlligtnrtT warns its readers against any undue despondency berause of a possible failure on the part of th? present Congress to suggest a basis cf compromise for the ratiflation of the peo ple. by way of amendment to the Constitution or otherwise The Confhtu'ton maintains the right of seces sion by South Carolina. The Rtpublita*, noting the suggestion to make Washington el'y the capital cf the new southern confederacy, ssys : " On this subject there can be no misunder standing The country was invited by Marvfond and \irt(inia to locate tire capital upon the banks of the Potomac, and no change of views In the vicinage wiilTnduce the surrender of the position, or of access to it, or of anything necessary to its perfect security. I.east of it is it conceivable that it would be permitted to be the capital of a new government arising out of the ruina of the old union." Thit Aim to I.vavoukats Civil Wa*.?Dots any sar.e man still fall to comprehend.that the present earnest purpose of the South Carolina oligarchy is to precipitate civil war as the means of preventing the North from acquiescing speedily In a settlement of tbe slavery question on terms securing the rights of the South in future, in the 1'nlott' If so, he is mentally blind, indeed. Do Virginia and Maryland prefer civil war and the government of the South Carolina oligarchy, to the continuance of tbe L'nion with an entire and satisfactory settlement of the fugitive slave law question, a constitutional amendment pledging tbe North never under any circumstances to inter fere with slavery in the States, and another em bracing the Missouri Compromise extended to the Pacific, as a future article of the Constitution of the United States ' Will Ueor^ia, North Caro lina, and Louisiana refuse such a settlement of the questions In issue, to join their fortunes under a government of tha Khetts. Keitts, Ac., of South vaiuiiiia, wuu uuny pruciaim iu? me eircuon ui Lincoln if but the pretense, while their settled purpose of forty years standing to destroy the Government of the United States, is the real cause why they have seised the property of the United (Mates in their midst, committed tee act of piracy upou an United States vessel, Ac., Ac ? Thb Act or Pieacy in Charleston Harbor The transfer of the United States revenue cutter brig in Charleston harbor the^other day to the se cession leaders, was as gross and attrocious an art of naked piracy as ever was perpetrated. Her com mander. a South Carolinian, one morning wrote to the Treasury Department a letter resigning his commission tn the service of the United States On the same afternoon be discharged bit crew, and pretendiug to absolve them from the obligation of their oaths aa United States sailors, swore them iu as tailors of the Independent State of South Caro lina, and hoisting the Palmetto flag, proclaimed the vessel and her appurtenances tae property of the said Independent State That the secession leaders have received from him this.I nited States vessel so obtained, inerelv proves that they are 'willing to resort even to dat-footed piracy to pre cipitate civil war, to make the settlement of the sectional troubles in the Union impossible. It will be remembered that in this case the oligarchy ?re without the pretenser that the property apper tained directly of indirectly to Soutn Carolina soil, as in tne case of the forts, arsenal, customhouse, and other Government fixed property there. mi t<c!D mo ijro?One of the South Caro lina bank* has taken a hundred thousand of the four hundrcd-thousand-dollar loan. Whereupon the Secession C< nvention has accorded to it the privilege of issuing more note* without their pre serving their relation to specie or other bona fide securities in its vaults, previously required by Sou'h Carolina law Now, this la simply the initiation of the old Continental-inonry system of raising the wind so as to pay war expenses. In thirty days the notes of that bank will not )>e worth more, in ordinary transactions between man and man, even In South Carolina, than Continen tal money waa la the middle of the American Revolution; though the aeceaaion leaders will doubtleaa take what property of other* they may fancy, " for the uae of the State," compelling the rer#?. nt at it* noi??i *-* - *' go. . ? ?? pijiMvm tucicici. mcy Tkk Rbop*mso or thk Africa"* Slave Trad* ?What but a determination that the Af rican alave trade shall be reopened under their proposed new dynasty, caused the "mob" in Charleston to rescue from the authorities of the United States a day or two ago, the captain of the* slaver Bonita? The Charleston Mtrcury not long since ur?ed its followers to say nothing for the time being of the purpose of reopening the Afri can slave trade, least they might thus render the border siaveboiding States suspicious of the dis union mutemeut. Hut the enthusiasm of the latter for their cherished policy thus overcame ... wuiiui on iqv instant a practical question arose In connection with which they mljjUt In that way prove the earnestaeas of their devotion to it. Tub "Mob" 1.1 Chablbstox. ? Itia well known that previous to Major Anderson's wise and patri otic evacuation of Fort Moultrie and retirement to Fort Sumter, he was informed by the secession leadera, that though he mieht rely upon their taking no steps whatever to molest liia command where theif posted, tbey regretted that they could give him no assurances that their inflamed fol lowers might not take It into their beads to en deavor to wrest Moultrie from him. Actinu on thit bint, Anderson (Imply feit called on to avail himself promptly of tbe mean* at h!? command of protecting bis tru?t from the tender mercies of tbe Charleston mob. And nobly, :nde|^hii he accomplished that object. w ThOfuciiioi tm Stole:* Cctti*?Be sides Captain Co?te, of South Carolina, who re cently betrayed bla trust In tbe harbor of Charles, ton, the officers of the vessel were 1st Lieut.

Tmi CtniM or thi Hoca ?Tbe atatement of a correspondent of tbe N. Y Tribune "that several t> ouaand bonda, bearing nambera adver ttaed by the Interior Department, were purchased by Messrs Rg^a & Co , of Washington, In New York, for aa ount of the President, and are, or were recently, te:d by him," baa not oaa word of troth la It. Not Tack.?1 be atory if tbe dlacovery of a de falcation lathe Treasury Department, In tbeahape of tbe atotrarticn of SIOO.WO In Treasury note*, or something of tbe aort, uow floating around In tbe press, turns out to be utterly untrae Nothing of the aort la known at tbe Department Tax Ksckptio* at the Exkcvtivk Mansion ' to-dat was a ratber meagre one compared with j some former ones. At II o'clock tbe repreacnta- ' tlvea of tbe principal foreign Governments at tended in full official costumes, <a alao tbe Army j and Navy officer* resident and temporarily here, 1 and th^ indo-M nf th? Pnnrt anil f?Anrt I of Claims. paying their re*pert* to the President of the United States. At 12 o'clock m. the doors were thrown open to tbe public, but, as already stated, tha rush was not so great as on some previous New Year's re ceptions, a fact due not a little, we presume, to the awful condition of the "slush-covered" streets. The only noticeable feature of ths oc casion was the fact that both secession and Union cockades were visible upon tbe persons of not a few present, females as well as males, and that In more than one Instance the wearers of such badges evinced the fact that they were endowed with more partlzam bitterness than good manners, the latter being what they should have manifested, rather than the former, on suoh an occasion at least. They, however, refused to manifest the latter, to the extent of declining the President's hand, and sweeping by him with an efl'ort at a display of lofty disdain which caused a suppressed nuer on tne part or all well-bred per sona who witnessed the ill-bred airs they thus manifested. We regret to have to add that some women, as well as men, were guilty of participation in this breach of the privileges of the Executive Mansion on New Year's day, accorded to all on the theory that on this day at least all who go there will at least respect themselves, if not the authorities of their country at other times. Sicrxtaby Thompson xot Rxsiqskd ?To-day the city is again filled with a rumor of the resig nation of the Secretary of the Interior, the Hen. Jacob Thompson, of Mississippi. We have to' say that there is not a word of truth in it. We base this declaration on the fact tha' as late as yesterday afternoon Mr. T. emphatically declared his purpose of remaining at his present post until the 4tb of March next Patent Laws? A Point teortk Conxtdtrimg.? One of the miserable consequences of a disruption of the Union, will be the destruction of all patent right property, as there will not be any Supreme Court of the United States to give it its usual pro tection. <j*v Hicks and the Extra Session. Gov Hicks arrived in the city last evening from a brief vi?it to the Kastern Shore, where he has received the assurances that bis refusal to call a e?s:oo of the legislature at tbe preseut time meets with the hearty approval of men of all parses in that section of tlie State. Tbe endorsement wbi<-h his court** /eieivts in our columns this morning, in a published list embracing the names of many of tbe most influential citizens of Haltlniore, re-, gardless ct party divisions, wHl doubtless serve to balance wLatever influence the address of tbe Murylihd Senators, which we published yester day, may have had. The Governor states that he is in regular corres pondence with ihe Governors of Virginia and Ken tucky, and with numerous conservative friends of the Union in high position at Washington. He Is consequently possessed of knowledge with re gard to movements tbatar*1 in progress that many of those who are impoxtunirtg him are wlioU v if noranl of A? aa evidence of these movements to Involve .Maryland in the vortex of disunion and civil war. he baa authorized ua to lay before the public the following extract from a letter from a gentleman in high position at Washington, whore character gives aaaurauce that he haa good author ity for the announcement that be baa deemed it bia duty to make to the Governor : \V AtHisoToN, Dec '25, l*-60 To Hii Excellency Gov Hicks: Deak Sir ?Without the honor of your peraonal acquaintance 1 take the liberty of appriaing you that from, intelligence which baa recently come Into my poaseaaion, 1 bav? every reaaon to believe that the disunion leader* intend to make Mary land the baais of their oi*rationa during the next two montba Apparently aatiafied that the ' Cot toa States" are autBcienily pledge t? the over throw of the Federal Government, they hope to tiring Maryland Into the line of the " aeceding brfort th* 4/A of March n>xt.

TLe motive of tbelr labor* la thia: If tbey can succeed in bringing Maryland out of the Union, tbey will Inaugurate the new "Southern Confed eracy" in the present Capitol of the United states If this can be accomplished before the 4tb of March next, they will aucceed in divesting the North of the aeat of Government, and by retain ing in their possession the public buildings and the public archives they hope at once to extort from foreign Government* a recognition not only of tbeir dt facto but of their dt jwe pretentions Such is the scheme. To compass its accomplish ment they hope to shake your preseut wise deter mination in respect to the assemblage of the Leg islature of your State.

The Senate then proceeded to consider tbe joint resolution making certain amendments to the Constitution of the United States Mr. Ilenjamln addressed the Senate at consid erable length Calling the attention of the Senate to the state of affairs in South Carolina, he said that tbe body had never been called upon to deliberate on more Important or solemn questions than those now pending. We are called upon promptly to meet an issue whose results havet*pen seen ror years. We have warurd tbe republican party again and again that we were drawing towards a point where we should* be driven to separation. But oor statements have been disre garded, bur assertions derided, and our predic tions scoffed at South Carolina has, he said, with a unanimity unexamDied. dissolved ne tion with the other States of thlf Confederation and declared herself Independent. We are her* to-day to acknowledge that Independence or over throw It by force of arms. We muit either yield her this or put her down by military force.

Never! Never! As the speaker was about to resume his seat, deafening apphuse, cat-calls, hisses and other violent demonstrations followed from the vast crowds of both ladles and gentlemen in the gal leries, who seemed to rise en matte. Several $en at? ri sprung to their feet, and Mr. Mason < ailed upon the presiding officer to clear tha galleries immediately Mr Yulee moved to adjourn. Not agreed to [Cries?"

Agreed to Mr. Stanton moved a substitute to Mr. Stevens' resolution. Mr. Stevtn* could not accept it. Mr Davis, of Ind , offered a resolution,14 That tbe Committee on the Judiciary be instructed to Inquire into and report to this House at any time what legislation, If any, has become necessary on tbe part of Congress In consequence of the posi tion thus assumed by South Carolina Mr. Cochran mov-d a substitute, denouncing tbe constitutional right of secession, and that tl.e General Government Is invested with power to collect the public revenue In all cases, and to pro tect Its property wherever situated; and that the j uuiciary Committee be lnitruct?<l to Inquire and report whether the litws now In force are sutflcl^nt to thla end; If inaufficient, to report the nec-ssary toll, to effect it, by the employment of the Army, Navy, or other forcea required. Mr. Davis declined to accept the substitute. Mr Hill n:oved to lay the whole aubject on the table; which was lost. Mr Sherman recommended that a vote be taken on the resolutions, so that they might be at one* d ? posed of, and thus prevent their discuaaion Interfering with more important bualneta on another day.

W ahuinotox, Dec 31.?The report which pre vailed throughout tbe city this afternoon that Lieutenant General Scott had been appointed Secretary of War, ad interim, produced a thrill ing effect and occasioned much indignation among the Secessionists, who are fully aware that General Scott is in favor of extensive military preparations. The truth is PostmasUr-General Holt is in temporary charge of tbe War Depart ment, an d to-night was attending to duties there in company with the chief clerk. General Scott has not been either at the Depart ment or President's House to-day. Both Secretaries Thompson and Thomas were at the Cabinet meeting to day, though rumor had urciarea omerwlie, Many report! prevailed with no truth for their foundation, and which serve only to add to the already intense excitement. No decisive action was taken by the Cabinet to-day relative to the Charleston forts The President's special message will probably be transmitted to Congress on Wednesday. It Is understood h^ will submit such facts as have come to his knowledge for such legislative action as may be considered necessary concerning the secession movements Senator Hunter intends introducing a resolution having in view an adjustment of the property and other questions with any seceding State.

Skcbktart Floyd's Communication.?In the House yesterday (as xtated in the Stir) the Sneaker presented a communication froAi ihe Secretary of War defending himself against certain charges implicating him as a party concerned In the late Indian trust fund. Tlie communication states that at one time in the year 1858. It Uecame abso lutely necessary to start large trains of transporta tion across the plains to Utah, when there was no available means to put those trains in motion Acceptances were given to contractors then to enable them to start, and they did so. Thes? ac ceptances have, until the past autumn, been to large amounts, nor has any complaint whatever, until then, brtu heard that means were not pro vided to meet and redeem them.. There has never been the least concealment or mystery abo'it this business.

Tlieir perversion baa rendered tbein void and of no ef fect. The belief is asserted that no one connected tn any way, directly, remotely, in any shape or form, with the duties of the War Department, bad any the least connection with or kuowledgc >f this embezzlement, in Its Inception or Its pro gress. Speaking of bis administration be adds :? 'Strict economy is enforced, and perfect respon ilblty In all money expenditure is and has been uccessfnlly carried Into effect.
