One feverUbtd gentleman pro claimed h!? disposition to light the Yankees. He could do It oti principle, and thought It high '.ime that this property question between the Notth and the South was settled. He ahould ginry ?n shedding hla las^drop of blood In such a cause, and deslretf no ? prospect of paradise His belief was that a southern mail Who got killed lighting a Yankee wasdead sure for heaven. The South to a man was ready to risk their lives on this stake; and this Speaker informed his Im promptu audience that wnen a man gets his mind fixed Upon heaven you can't keep bim out of It, In the aourae of his remsrkshesaid that he would spit on any Southern man who was opposed to secession, or words to that effect Mr A. R. Allen, who waa present, instantly remarked that he wan a Southern man ahd a Union man. This avowal caused quite a sensation, and but for the interference of friends, who carried Mr. A s op ponent awav. a flsht might have ensued. About & o'clock p. m a considerable crowd of people were assembled in Brown'a Hotel, and the everlasting topic was discussed with every Indi cation of fresh interest. Two Washingtonlans, both a little better or Wone for sundry liquid Im bibitions, sat talking to each other, and one de clared that he was a Union man; the other ex pressed himself for Immediate secession No 1 thought it would be a blessing to the country if all disuntonists were bung without benefit of clergy.

Both belligerents were Instantly backed by their friends, and a small scrimmage wat Imminent, when several constables and a magistrate Interfered And separated the pugna cious pair. ' After all prospect of a fight bad subsided, up steps the well known little patriot "who wouldn't sell his birthright for a mess of potash," and who hurt himself so seriously on a former occasion trying to straddle wide enough to tread in the footsteps of the late A.

New Years Day was ushered in by different parties ia different ways. A very pleasant ball was given by Company H. National Guard Bat talion, at the Assembly Rooms Another dancing party met at Franklin Hall, and passed the entire night in alternate dances and fights Not a square from this discord a party of jovial fellows made the night glorious witti the vocal music, in pur Suance of an old Oerman custom of singing the old year out and the new year In.
