THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: SATURDAY Jaaury 5. 1941. Spirit *r tk( PrfH The Constitution of yesterday srunes in favor of Ute withdrawn 1 of Government troops from seceding State* and the surrendering of Govern ment property, arsenals, forts, Ac., to aaid States, as tending to the maintenance of peace. The Plates, nyt the Constitution, Will not allow their own forte to be turned against tbem ; and tbe General Government will have no need of forta In districts over wblcb It baa no longer jurisdic tion* Tbe Inttll'g-ncer thinks any advice given to the people of tbe Border States, in diaauaaion from tbe policy ~>f precipitate disunion, if j to ttrding from tht ?eet?$*on>stt thtmstirtt, abould certainly be heeded by tbe former, aince it has tbe merit of being disinterested, and quotee from the Charleston Mtreury to tbe effect that the cotton States have no right to call upon the border alare States to bear the brunt of tbe battle; that it "ia rain and cowardly for States further South to look to tbe frintlsr States, surrounded as they are bv attachments to tbe Union, and obstacles In tbe way of lta disruption by them, to lead the South in the recovery of Its independence " The C0nttiiutton and Intelligtnctr do not ap pear thla morning. Datlight Bkkaki5g?The Committee on the part of the border States, Mr. Crittenden, chair man, held Its second meeting last night, and at 12 o'clock adopted the following propositions : Recommending a repeal of all personal liberty bills. An efficient amendl ng of the fugitive slave 1 aw, preventing kidnapping, equalizing commission er's fees, S.c. That the Constitution be so amended as to pro hibit any interference with slavery in any of the States. That Congress shall not abolish slavery In the dock yards, &? ., nor in the District of Columbia, without ronsent of .Maryland, and the consent of the Inhabitants of the District, nor without com pensation. That Contrri>Cfl tksll nnt 1 ntovfaro I State slave trade. That there shall be a perpetual prohibition of the African slave trade. That the line of 36:JO shall be run through all the existing territory of the United States, and in all north of that line slavery shall be prohibited; south of that line neither Congress nor territorial legislature shall hereafter pass any law abolish ing, prohlbing, or in anymanner interfering with African slavery; and when any territory, contain ing sufficient population for one member of Con gress in any area ot fiO.OUl) sruare miles. shall ap ply for admission as a State,' It shall be admitted with or without slavery as Its constitution may determine The Committee represented at its meeting Mary land, Virginia, Missouri, North Carolina, Texas. Kentucky, Ohio, Iowa, Indiana, Illinois, Dela ware, Arkansas, Pennsylvania, and New Jert?y This report was agreed to under circumstances* leading to the hope that It will be accepted by overwhelming majorities of all the ru?rt!*.? tntn which Congreu is divided If such be the result the public may regard the whole trouble to have b?en settled by it. It will, of course, be opposed by extreme men North and South. But no settle ment that promises to save the Union will suit the end* the former aim to work out; while nothing will be sanctioned that does look to try ing the issue of civil war, by those of both Houses, who forgetting that Lincoln is emphati cally a minority President, are insanely bent on essaying to carrying out irrepressible conflictism in the Government in times like the present. Th* Isto*ixo Cabinet ?It is now known that Mr Edward Data, of St Louis, It to be a mem ber of President Lincoln'* cabinet, and also that the Secretaryship of the Treasury baa been cflered to Senator Cameron, of Pa It la to be boped that the lattet may aee flt to accept the position, not only because no other member of hla party la better fljted to discharge Its Immediate duties, hut be cause be Is well known to sll who know the an tecedents of the public men of the times, as being eminently conservative upon the slavery question. He Is a gentleman of proverbial sagacity and great energy and fore* of cbsracter, and the fact that he haa been Invited to become a member of the new administration will do much to asaure the South that it will not prove ultra upon the slavery question, we may not inappropriately add, here, that a strong desire that Mr. Schuyler Colfax, of Indiana, shall ajso be in the new cabinet is b?ing manifested here just noVr by conservative men of all parties, not only because he is known to be eminently competent, but also because It is wel1 known that his counsels, also, may always be re lied on to be directed earnestly to the work of re storing harmony between the at present so deplora bly divided and distracted adverse sections of the Confederacy. Til* PlOOKKSS OF THE W** Of Sl?CTH CARO LINA vs. the Uhioh.?The following are tbe conquests. k.c , of South Carolina, achieved in ten diys: 1st.

Nevertheless, It to known that after a long, gen eral and somewhat ttcrmy debate upon the duty of the party In Congress In view of the state of the times, they adjourned without taking a rote, until nooa to-day, that they might then have before them the report of the Border State Committeei elsewhere explained In to-day's Star.

Tbera waa not a whisper indicating that the troops already there were not to occupy any one or all of the forta at tbe option of their cominandf r It waa thought by thouaands more than enough that tb? Uovern" ment ahould be deterred from takinir atrna to strengthen iU own forU and protect its own prop erty, by tbe threats of men whose palpable object was to seize both by force, If not peaceably sur rendered to their, but even the secedera them selves did not require a pledge that the troops already there should remain in Fort Moultrie. The President, therefore, violated no pledge, if any bnd been given, by sanctioning Major Ander son's movement. But how is it with the secessionists* They were under a pledge not to molest the forts If no reinforcements were sent. None were sent; and yet they seized Fort Moult(le nnd Castle PSnck ney, even without waiting to hear whether the President approved Major Anderson's movement or not: No reinforcements have since been sent; and yet they have seized the custom-house, tbe pott office, a revenue cutter, and the arsenal, with, it is aaid. seventy thousand stand* of arm*! Surely, if the President erer was under any pledge not to reinforce the troops In Chariestou harbor, he is relieved from it by their outrages. Amos Kimball's Lvttkk* on Secession.?In response to numerous calls upon us for a new edi tion of the able Letters of Amos Kendall upon Secession, published in this paper, we notify the public that we are preparing to print the whole of them in a singl* extra number of the Wxxkly (Dollar) Star. We shall print no more copies of the extra number, than may be ordered (and paid for when ordered) at the Siar'i counter, or by letter The price will be 3 cents per copy; 50 per hundred copies; or f'JO per thousand copies; and in proportion for any other numbers; each copy to be done up In a wrapper for mailing, if 10 re quested We will keep our book open to receive order* for them until Tuesday next, after which thne the extra will go to press. Thus, those ouly can get them who may send in their orders, with the money, between now and Tuesday evening next. They will be worth their weight in gold in bringing about in North, South, hast and West, the heblthy state of public sentiment so absolutely necessary, now, for the preservation of the Union. To THE FLAMTERk OF VlF<JI5IA A SB MARY LAND?We call their attention to the fact tele graphed from Charleston that one thousand negroes are working on the fortifications under the com mand of the revolutionary authorities of South Carolina Are you prepared to precipitate a revolution that thus bringa negro slaves in the field, firs* against the United Statea, and then, perhapa, against yourselvea ? The Wife of Major ajsperson?We hear, on reliable authority, that this lady received six thousand calls on New V*ear's day, in New York city, where she is now sojourning. This fact is truly significant of popular opinion there with reference to her husband's gallant transfer of his command from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter. <y3="COl.l"mbia typographical socr !_L3r kty ?a Stated M-etini of thii Society wTTbe hell in the Cuuucil Chamber THIS kven ing. at7k o'clack. j(? h a doipl'w c Y-5=?8ERV1CES WILL BK HELD TO-MOR X3 HOW (Sunday) in th* Episcopal Cnapel. onFourteenth street.

Mr. Dou^lai Mid that it wu extremely painful to him to announce that the committee could not agree In order to properly consider tbe subject, it was neceesarr to so behind the late election and into the hlmory of abolitionism. He referred to the action of Congress in 1820 upon this sub ject, and said that as long aa tbe provision of tbe Missouri Compromise were carried out there was peace and barmony Had the extension of that 14 sL. n- -lo- ? -? * ' 11 uc HI un i m liiC, pftipwa oy 01(11, Deen Mtab lished by Congress, It would hive been tbe end of slavery agitation forever. He threw tbe blam? upon Northern representatives The narty formed In 1854 overthrew the peace and quiet secured by tbe Missouri Compromise lln?, aud defeated the very objects for which they are now striving. Tbe republican part? had aroused the apprehen slons of tbe Booth, and it was their duty to give some assurances that no harm Is Intended toward them. He dwlred the Senator from Oblo (Mr. Wade) to say whether It was not tbe Intention of tbe republican party to stifle and confine slavery to its present limits. Mr. Wade replied that the gentleman would find answers to all his qnerles In his speech Mr. Douglas did not expect an evasive answer; but if he could not obtain a direct answer from Senators, he would refer to Mr. Lincoln'speeches; and he defied anv republican Senator to siy that tbe policy he haa pointed out was not the policy of tbe republican party. Mr, Douglas concluded by saying that tbe Southern States should have no fenr from the ad ministration of Mr Lincoln, but that tbe 1'resl dent elect would sink the partisan in the patriot. He would be powerless in the Senate, ana could have no advisers except such as the Senate should recommend Tb? nmnA?pH - | MUIVIIMUIVUI IW IUC Constitution would obviate all difficulty, and re turn confidence to the minds of the South, lie denied the right of secession, but acknowledged the right of resolution; and s.tid that South Caro lina snould be regarded not as a rebellious State, but as a common enemy. He complained of the secession of Florida, Texas, and Ixiuislana,which had cost so much; and said the amendments he had proposed were demanded by the country. On motion of Mr. Toombs, the futber consider ation of the subject was postponed to Monday next. Mr. Crittenden obtained leave to have his reso lu'ion printed;? When, on motion of Mr. tiwin, the Senate ad journed. Hovsk.?After our report closed Mr. Carter, the chairman of ths Committee for the District of Columbia, said that he had been prevented bv sickness from calling the committer together, and was not prepared to make a report. He moved a postponement of the business of the District to Thursday next. M. li 1 1 J * * " .mi. ntigurs eaiu luere was nothing before the House to hinder the taking up the special order for the dav. They could at least act upon the railroad bill. After some discussion, Mr. Carter's postpone ment was agreed to. Mr. Bin^batu reported a bill from the Commit tee on the J udicia.y, providing for the more * fl'?*c tual collection of duties on imports, with amend ments [This bill is similar in character, if not substantially the same, as the " Force Bill" which was passed on the former occasion of resistance to the execution of the revenue laws, in South Caro lina, during Gen. Jackson's administration ] Mr. Bingnam Said that be had been Instructed by the committee to report the bill, and move for its recommitment Mr. Houston objected to that course Mr. Bocock asked If the bill had been reported in response to any resolution or petition. Mr Bingham s&id it had not. Mr. Bocock wished to know by what right the committee reported on that subject Mr. Bingham said it came up In the regular order of business Mr. Bocock objected to the consideration of the bill The Speaker said the bill was reported back in the regular order of business. Mr. Branch demanded the previous question on Mr. Bingham's motion to recommit the bill. Mr. Sherman said that he bad the tioor. Mr. Crawford aid tbat be did not understand how Mr. Bingham could bring up tbe bill In regular order, if Mr. Sherman had tbe floor Mr. Houston moved tbat tbe bill be referred to the Committee of tbe Whole on tbe state of the Union, and asked tbe gentleman from Nortb Car olina (Mr Brauch) to withdraw his motion for tbe previous question. Mr. Branch declined to do so. After some discussion it was agreed that the bill should come up as unfinished business on the proper day. On metion of Mr. Sherman, the House went into Committee of tbe Whole on the state of tbe Union, (Mr. Etheridge iu the cbair,) and resumed tbe consideration of tbe executive, legislative, and judicial appropriation bill W bile tbe bill was being read, it was found tbat th*re w?? no quorum present, when the com mittee rose, and the House adjourned at 3 o'clock Satckday,January 5 Sexate ?The Indian acDronriatinn >?ni read, and on motion by Mr. Hunter, referred to the Committee on Finance Mf. Mason, of Va., introduced a resolution Baking the President to communicate to the Senate a copy of ail orders given to military officers, plans submitted by military officers, and instruc tions relative to the same, in regard to the occu pancy of any United States military posts in Vir ginia. the District of Columbia, and the States bordering on the Atlantic ocean 6outh of Vir ginia. Mr. Slidell called up his resolution relative to excluding from tte gallery of the Senate all re porters connected with tbe Associated I'ress. Mr. Slidell said that In not making proper efforts to discover the perpetrator of a false dis patch to the Xew Orleans Crescent, the agent of the Associated Press in Washington had made himself responsible for the erroneous statement Mr. Wilson thought the agent of the Associated Press bad shown that he was not responsible for the dispatch. Mr. Anthony remembered to have seen the dis patch in a New Vork paper first He did not think It would be proper to punish a man in Washington for an oflVnce committed by another man in New York Mr Seward thought the better way was to let the thtng correct itself. ' Mr Cameron was inclined to vindicate the mmakici ui mecwnaie, Dy voting for the resolu tion; but be tbougbt, perhaps, It had better be left alone. Mr. Slldell said that, as the mendacity of the reporters of the Associated Press tad been suffi ciently testified to by all the Senate, he withdrew kis resolutin. The Senate then took up the special order being the House Pacllic Railroad b.ll, with tundry amendments. {X7~ Gov.
