Fokt WiiHiMtns Gaxkisoxid ?On last Sat urday evening the steamer Philadelphia left the Navy Yard with a detachment of one company of 4-3 marines, under Major Terret, for Fort Wash tngton, as a precautionary measure. It is well kuown to our readers that thi* fortification has be<-n without any garrison for several years past, and might very readily hare been taken posses sion of in Its unprotected state, but for the pru dential measure above set forth. As it is. Fort Washington is in no position for defense It baa the requisite number of guns, but all are dis mounted, and th^re la not a gun carriage in the fort We presume, however, the necessary steps have been or will be taken In reference to the matter Fort Washington cost 9-j'S,0U). snd gar risoned for war should have lUU men and Si guns. The recent arrival of aeveral detachments of re cruits at the U. S. Marine headquarters here, has led to the erroneous impression about town that companies of artillery had been ordered to Wash ington from Fort McHenry and elsewhere. Such la not the fact There are only about 130 men ait the barracka, three companies of whom are of the regular force atatloned nere, the remainder being the recruita above alluded to It does not seem to be generally understood that this being the head quarters of the marine force of the United States, all recruits are aent forward from the varioua re eruitin^ atationa for Instruction before being aent off to aea. The rumor prevailing all over town yesterday that a large number of marines had arrived here on Saturday night from Brooklyn, tn route for Southern forts, grew out of tb* fart that a de tachment of the guard of the L S. ship Cyane, of the Pacific squadron, arrived bare, having been relieved from duty on board ship. [COMXVJICATBD ALaBMIHg indeed is the state of affairs tn oar ettv. Scarcely night p^aaea but there la one or more lire*, and tome of thetn very destructive. The utmost concern it manifest npon the counte nance of every property bolder and business man you meet No one feels secure in the possession of bis home and llresidev What I have to pro pose Is the forming of patrols upon every square in the city from now until after the 15th of March. Let the property holders and business men of the city take this thing in h-ind. Already have tbe business men of one tquare-lu our city commenced tbe work. Let all tbe balance follow, and in a short time peace and quiet will be restored A few examples will curb ibis spirit of Incendiwism, and those int-rested in tbe welfare of our citv ran sieep with seinrity An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.

Nobfolk, Jan 0?Last night Aahland Hall waa crowded br a large citizen*" meeting, to take action for tbe defense of tbe cltv. Kx-Maror For guaon waa preaident. Strong apeec bee were made by prominent gentlemen, arging the cititraa to arm themselves, and place the city in a atate of dofenae for any emergency. Resolutions were reported and unaalmoualy adopted recommending and urging the Legisla ture to thoroughly organlxe tbe military power of the Htate, and prepare for elvtl war snoald it occur; scorning coercion and pledging Urea and fortunes to realat any attempt by tbe Federal Gov ernment or Northern Legislatures to iavade tbe State; denouncing and preparing to reaiat any In vaaion. Oar. Letcher'* Message niinamiu, ?a , jjin. 4 ?hot Uflfllff I ma ugf to the Lejiialature. alluding to the condition of thf conntry aaya: AH wr, know and feel that the danger U liutni nent. and that a.1 true pa tr lota are exerting tbemaelves to save ua from Impscd 1 ng perils. He renews the proposition in hla last mewage for a convention of all the St*t-?, and aaya It la monttrona W> aeea government like our* destio/td merely becauae men cannot agree about a dome* tir institution It becomes oor State to be mind fnl of ber own interesta. A disruption is inevita ble; and If new confederations are to be formed, we must havstbe beat guarantees before we can attach Virginia to either. He condemns the hasty action of South Carolina which be aaya haa taken ber southern slab r* by aurprlae. He would make no apeclal reference to her course, had he not been invited to do so by her late executive in uncalled-for references to Virginia. The non-sisveholdIng States are chargeable for S resent condition of affkirs and If the Union is Isrnpted, upon them rests the solemn responsi bility. He alludes at length to tbeir aggressions, and Suva thev have the rmw?r tn ?nit th itrth inH restore confidence. " Will tbey do II?" He awaits their response without apprehension Our action should be based upon the wrongs done to our own people. He oppupaes a Mate Convention at this time, tnd suggests a commission of two of the moat dlrceet sUtfsmentn the Legislatures of those States wblch have passed personal liberty bills, aod insist upon their unconditional repeaf except to the New England States Second Virginia must have proper and effect ive guarantees for the protection of slavery In the District of Columbia. Third. Our equality in the States and Territo ries must be fully recognised. and the Tights of person and property adequately protected, and stored, also that we be permitted to pass through the free States aad Territories uumolested, and If alaves t c abducted, the State where the loss oc curs shall ray the full value Fourth That like guarantees be given that the transmission of s aves between the slave-holding State?, by land and water, shall not be nt^rfered with Fifth That the passage and enforcement of rigid law* for the punishment of sach persons in the free States as may organize, or aid or abet in any way or mode whatever in organising com panies with a view of assailing the slavehilding States, and to excite slaves to Insurrection. Sixth That the Ueneral Government be de rived of tLe Dower of aoDuintlu? to local <<tfices in sliveholding State# persons tortile to their in stitutions or inimical to tbeir rights He further says that he will regard any attempt of Federal troops to past across Virginia for the purpose of coercing any Southern State as an act of invasion, which will be repelled He is ndt without a bope that the present diffi culties will find a satisfactory solution. l>et New Kngland and Western New York be sloughed off and ally themselves with Canada. The message is lengthy; the rest Is mainly local.
