1 .! TilK KVEMNG STAR. WASHINGTON OITY: SATURDAY ..Juitry 19, 1961. i= Spirit at ikr .Homing PrfM. V The Intelligencer, in an editorial headed 41 Tht Duty of the Ilcur,'' says . With regard to the disposition that shall be tnrde of our other Tcr'ltorial q-iratlons, a satisfactory solution c*n sorely be found in the adoption, ruder Stich modifications as may be Judged expedient, of one or another of the propositions offered by Mr Crittenden, or .Mr Bier, or Mr. Corwin " It further says tbat they do not ask Republicans to enter into any such parley with traitors In the Southern states. a? baa been advised by many, but tbey should enter into parley with the border States, and by mutual concessions adjust the difficulties and reunite tbe Union. The Can si ft ut ? on affects to consider tbe bullying articles of tbe New York Tribune as authoritative promulgations of Mr. Lincoln'a views The RrpiiWirtin says tbat " Mr. Crittenden's nrnnotltlom m nnur Irnnu'n tn (K* ntiKll?* Wo mnt r*pr*te*t tekat he would ptrsonally dnirt to have dont." -.? The Case or Jcdje XV ateocs ?Some day? inre we published the report of the Ilouie Judiciary Coinm'ttee, recommending the Impeachment of Judge Watrous, of Texas. It spoke for itself. It is the second unanimous Congressional rrport for his impeachment It reviews the former investigat ons of the case, and concurs in the f? 14 conclusions arrived at by different committees and on different examinations of the case, that Judge Wntroui should be impeached for high crime* and misdemeanors In view of this unafnlmity of judgment, and its fortification by review and by additional evidence, it nuit be impossible for any to doubt at least the propriety of putting the J udge on a trial competent to determine the ( Issues of the case. It is known that for the spare of ten years or more Judge Watrous has resisted a trial, when the natural and forcible presumption Is that, If I V 1 J 1 J - - - luiiuirui. iir wuum ur-mana a irini, or ai leasconfront it with alacrity. He would have the advantage of having his case determined by tbe most august tribunal in all the land?the Senate cf tbe UniU-d States; there could be no risk of corruption, or ignorance, or hastiness, in his judge* Tbat Judge Watrous, with s?sch a tribunal to appeal to, should have resisted and still resists a trial, is alone sjificient reason to determine any doubt that may po?sibly remain of the propriety of his impeachment. The general facts of the case, n tmely: that tbe judge has been dedellberately accused twice by tbe Legislature of H Mi*c, ?un? uc ua? i/cril t UOI "fU WHO IQf SaiTlP L gh crimes and misdemeanors by two different Congressional committees of investigation, and a moiety of another; that these different Inquests Ibave concurred In the determination of facts; and that, notwithstanding all this urgency, this judge aud his friends resist the proposition for putting him on trial, are of themselves sufficient to determine the justice and necessity of an impeachment, without going further into an examination cf the case. We notice that our Texas exchanges are very indignant in their comments on the long delay to which Corfgres? has unnecessarily subjected the determination of this case These complaints .# ar? not without grounds A late copy of the ! Houston T< ''graph, before ua, Indignantly refers to the fact that \tfbile charirea have been pending sad are stlil pending agiirst Judge Watroua? tii*.se charges, tco. being for feloniour otlences and crimes of the gravest character ? he, the 2 :(i?e. it: 1 occupy* the bench all the time, and ? assumes to try causes This exhibition of hardi]f hood, and the Judge's constant resistance of a trial, sufficiently demonstrate that no remedy Is to be found In any other proceeding or cour?e than impeachment We cannot now doubt but that Congress will bring thi* annoying but important matter to an lsaue The country demand* It, the interest* of justice demand* it, and the interacts of Judge Watroua and hi* friends, if Innocent and sincere, should certainly not oprose it ffis.xs ov the Time* ? Each day continue* to bring forth Important events bearing on the future of the country Thus, yesterday afternoon and this morning thefollewing tact* became known I ( ? here : 1st That tbe Senate of the United Stateswhlch up to that time had sought to embarrass the President a policy of preserving Intact as far as possible the Government a nece?snry authority at the f*outh, as weil as its right* of property there, has changed its position ?-ii that jk)int, in confirming the nomination of the Hon Joaepb Ilolt, of Ky., to be the SecrtWv cf War, by a vote of 36 to 13, , after a fierce and bitter struggle on the part of the disunlonlsts t>tr i# of the bodtf. against thatarti >n id It alto became known here yesterday afterttrnoon, that the House of Delegates of Virginia have voted down a resolution proposed a?4 eloquently adv ? "ted by Mr Newton,of Henrico, (a en of the Hon Willougbby Newton.) declaring tbe clt st'.ny of Virginia to wltb tbe Gulf states The following Is the resolution In question. Vlx: Httcltfrf, That in tbe present alarming condition of affairs it In a dangerous del usion to suppose lUat the t(iter*-sts of Virginia are not thoroughly Identified with those of her southern sisters, and that any Intimation* from any source that b?r people are looking to any other combination, in tbe last resort, than a Union with them, Is calculated to weaken tbe position of our friends and strengthen the hands of our enemies. 3d This morning, the telegraph brings news that after a very excited debate, the Georgia Convention, by a vote of 160 to 13", have ordered a se cewlon ordinance to be drafted and reported?notwithstanding the fact that the majority i f the popular vote in the election of delegates to that (Convention wai largely against Georgia's secession, except after consultation and joint action with all the rest of the southern States. Favorable SMgss.?Weare very happy to have I* 1_ - - " " ii in our power 10 aay mat the Government here bci become satisfied that all danger of hostile collision between its forc?*s and those engaged in the aetcaalon movement Is rapidly disappearing The revolutionary authorities of South Carolina have entirely changed their policy, and are now striving to prevent and avoid the collision in Charleston harbor they were evidently striving to precipitate up to very recently. It is believed that th!a change of their tarticaia the resuttof the growing deal re of the people of South Carolina for a settlement of the difficulties without the permanent deatructlon of the Union ; and that it means that tfce revolutionary authorities of that State are acting under the ?* ? ? ? .v.?.ub jiupaiuilfri wth their cause in other State*, making It plain to them that their late apparent desire to rush the country into civil war wa? rapidly uniting the conservatives of every other Southern State, as vr?ll as the whole North, without distinction of party, against the nominal cause of the South as jepreaented by South Carolina The J?t$Uigtneer of this morning publishes a letter from Marshal Kane, of Baltimore, %.% o * - * ? - -?* - - v iu?jui dciio, <u mil cuy, (in reply to a letter from Mayor B..) denying that there la a^y Intention on the part of any of their citizens to interfere vrlth the inauguration of Mr. Lincoln, and excuaes the lnault offered to Mr. Buchanan in the aireeta of that city on the eve of hie inauguration with the plea that the lnault waa offered by fanatical club# that are not now in exlatenre.

After a short debate, the special order for the day (Pacific Railroad) was tiken up. Mr. Collaroer moved to postpone the special order for the purpose of taking up the House bill for the admission of Kansas; which motion was agreed to The question then being on the smendment of Mr. Greco, to curtail the dimensions of Kansas westward and extend it northward to the Platte riverMr Green addressed the Senate at considerable length. 4 ft.. . 1 * .# *ti?vi u pivtiavicu uiM iiasiuii) mr auiciiuuiuii ui Mr. Green wn lost ? yeas 23, nay* 31.

Mr. Sherman, in a lengthy speesh, reviewed the past course of the South in relation to the seizure of Federal property and the insults offered to the American flag, and deprecated the excitement now raging in the South, caused by aspiring and designing politicians. He defended the policy of the republican party in regard to the States and Territories, ana charged southern members with having misrepresented the principles and doctrines of the party to their constituents throughout the South.

He declares emphatically tbat Immediate secession is not the sentiment of the people, as was clearly confessed by the refusal of the Legislature to submit the ordinance of secession to th? people for their ratification.

He state* further that the treasury is absolutely empty, and the revenues of the State exceedingly ' limited. To raise the first thousand dollars for secession purposes a direct tax must be laid.

Blinks was the last to leave the burning ship, and it was owing to the heroic exertions and gallint conduct of the two Captains and crews that all were saved The Captain of the Morning Star, his wife and daughter. and his crew paid every possible attention to the destitute passengers, among whom were siity females and a number of children.
