w.I I T THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: WEDNESDAY Juurr 93 1M1. Spirit ( the M?rali| Prm The Intelligencer argue* that a so-called southern confederacy vnll not be rxempt from the divisions and dissensions which havedisturbed the repo?e cf the United States under our present admirably- balanced Constitution As it is admitted that the ?' Interests of ttie slaveboldtng ~ "v * * * " *? t11 I Htates are not altogether auce, mere wn? tablv be tke same dimensions, with only tbl* difference, that lleir flrrcenfM is likely to be the greater, because srfsirg from within Instead of coming from without. The Constitution holds that England and France will readily enter Into treaties with a southern confederacy, and that although neither may "confess the blunder It made when it ventured upon negro emancipation." the wants of trade and commerce will very soon constrain tbera to recognize southern independence. The R'fublican urges that Mr. Crittenden's * * * * * *? A_ M.% _1 ^ resolutions should not D? suDomiea 10 iae pr?i>tc before tbe 4th of Marcb, and says that the proposition of Mr. Bigler to submit tbequestion on the 12th of February is 14 extra-constitutional if not unconstitutional." ^ * Tni CO!fsk*VATlVX LKADKR IN TH* VlHOIXIA Lkcislatcbk.?The New York Htrald Is incorrect In regarding Governor Letcher as the power at Richmond who has thus far successfully stemmed the torrent of disunion per st there, that An the assembling of tbe Legislature bade fair to weep away all obstacle* to the scheme of whisk" ing the Old Dominion out of the Union In the twinkling of an eye. The chairman of tbe Committee of Finance In the lower House is that man?the Hon. James Barbour, of Culpeper, who, though bat just risen from the bed of sickness on which he had been laving for four or Ave months, has been the leader of the anti-di?union!s!s throughout the contest, the most arduous and exciting known since revolutionary times, to the history of Virginia's State Councils. He was the author of Virginia's plan of consultation of five commissioners from each tHate to assemble here on the 1th proximo, by and through which, all sincere friends of the I nion 4m ?k? anl metfnnftlit nnw hanni 1 v MWg ?UC ICUVI ? * ? ? ?f | j , the mrunrfi for the speedy peaceful settlement of the troubles by the several Statea will surely be satisfactorily initiated So, too. was be the author of the State's policy of last winter in refusing compliance on Virginia's part with the demand of South Carolina and Mississippi, made through commissioners for a Southern Conference or Convention Hid thst demand been acceded to, Virginia would not be as she is now, both able and willing to bring both the extreme North and the extreme South to a sense of reason W ithout her countenance, the extreme South cannot involve ?1 nt CtatM In mnuompnt hue UV1UCI aiu i uv.u. u ^ -v. ~?~ - ~ ? ~... unless coercion be essayed, aud with her countenance tb? border non-ilavebolding States, If evincing a disposition to refer the questions in issue te their several constituencies, will speedily find all the border slaveholding States firmly fixed in favcr of defeating the scheme for a Southern Confederacy. the success of which depends wholly upon their ability to seduce the border States from consulting their own true interests Mr Barbour, by-tbe-by, is the anti-secession nominee for the Convention from Culpeper county, which, notwithstanding the late boasts of the disunion r,T " newspapers with reference to its entlments, will elect blm oy a majority 01 lour or five hundred, In a total vote of a thousand On Monday list, on tbe occasion of his nomination, Mr Barbour addressed an immense meeting of his constituents, against the plains of tbe disunlonists f ?r st, In one of tbe most powerful and eloquent speeches it was ever our lot to hear. Conld he repeat It before the people of every county of Virginia,-U?e race of those In Virginia who would pull down the pillars of the best Government that ever man was blessed with, would be short Indeed. -?An M*n<la?r lad * t ftAirltf aV?P(T .

In nearly all the counties parties were divided and the candidates were nominated, upon the question whether Virginia shall at once secede to take part for weal or for woe in the movement of the Gulf States, or whether she shall remain true to her allrgiance to the United States, at least untilevery conceivable fairand earnest effort to secure reasonable guarantees pi southern rights shall hav? been exhausted. Ws are satisfied that the authorities of the nonslaveholding States hold in their hands the determination of the result of Virginia's election for the convention If they respood frankly to the proposition of the antl-seceasion party?the majority?of the Virginia Legislature, for assembling here on the 4th pro* , five commissioners from each State dlsoosed to settle the trouble without a permanent dissolution of tbe Union and civil war, Virginia will doubtless put her Iron heel upon secession, by sending to the convention an overwhelming majority firmly opposed to the destruction of the Union for the sake of its destruction. and anxious only fur a settlement that will obviate tbe real existing disabilities of which the friends of tbe Union in the South justly complain Pimsstlvasia, New Jirsey, axd N tw Voik. It is understood here, ?o-day, that Gov. Curtin, of Pa., will promptly Initiate measures to have Pennsylvania represented here by live commissioner*. on the 4th proximo. In accordance with Virginia's request. Intelligence received to-day from Harr'*burg, name* ex-Governor Packer, Gideon J Ball, of Erie, and Morton McMlcbael. of Philadelphia, at likely to be three of Pennsylvania'* live commissionera. It alio aeems to be understood around the Capitol this forenoon that both New York and New Jersey will promptly respond favorably to Vir ginla. While it it possible that some of the Northern States may ask a little longer delay than until the 4tb of February, on account of inability to manage in so short a time to secure the services as Commissioners of their very best men for tbe occasion, tbe signs all indicate that in reasonable time every non-slavebolding Mate will be found represented in this most Important Convention ever held in tbla country*.

He reprobated the Idea of lending commissioners to treat with foreign Powers, or attempting to seek an alliance with Power* that had once shed their ancestors blood upon our own toll, and who were now battling against all the institutions of the South He believed that there was yet sufficient brotherly affection In the minds of the people to heal all these difficulties Mr Wsshburn, of Wis , spoke In favor of the report cf the Committee of Thirty-three, which he had made.

On Tuesday ni^ht, eight companies from Mls Itainni and Alabama rnmh?(no nparl? rr- 1 F, - T ? - ~ hundred men, arrived at Fort Baranc&s In the steamer Oregon, from Mobile. Last night tbe Conecuh Guards, Capt Martin, from Conecuh countv, Alabama, arrived here, and will proceed to the Navy Yard immediately. Two companies from Alabama, the Auburn Guards, and another, numbering 120 men. are expected to Might, which will increase the forces to abont 1,100 There is reason to fear, from tbe anxietv of tbe troops, that an attack will be made shortly on Fort Pickens; but as yet the Commander-in-Cbief desires to avoid tbe shedding of blood It is feared, also, that Fort Pickens will be reinforced; If so, dreadful must be tbe fleht and the slaughter. The complement for this fort is 1.00U men and 250 ; I I# *1 ? 1 J.J u. -? ?' guns. it tury arc idiiuru in ? uian-OI-Wdr. 3U,UUU troop# can hardly take it We can bat hope for tbe best. The first drop of blood shed will be tbe commencement of a terrible war. Vet Fort Pickens must be given up. We have so many Alabamtans among us that . we are almost inclined to think we are in Ala- , bama. That State should demand this section at 1 the termination of this affair at any rate. Tknnesxee ?It would seem that in tbe Ten- j nessee Legislature there is a controllingconserya- j ttve sentiment, which, while it endorses the do sition that the trant of additional guarantees to : the Sonth should be made a condition precedent ; to the longer slay of Tennessee in the Union, Is determined that Tennessee shall not be preclpi- | tated Into secession. Tbe bill calling for a Con- | vention of the people of the State, which passed the House several days ago, (and which we be- ' lleve has since passed the Senate,) provides that . any ordinance or resolution which maybe adopted by said Convention having for Its object a j change of the position or relation of tbe State to thp Nlltinnul I'ninn nr h?r alato* - ?- v i_iVU?UVI ? hall be of no binding force or effect until it is I submitted to or ratified by tbe people, and re- j quiring a vote equal to a majority of the votes ra?t j in the last election for Governor to ratify. Thus < the people will have an opportunity, in voting for delegates, to declare for or against secession; and again, should the sction of the Convention contemplate any change in tbe Federal relations of tbe State, they will have the opportunity of endorsing or overruling alike their own former decision and the action of tbe Convention. It is nronoaed to hold Ihe ^l^rflnn fnr m#?rnK,>r? r\f t>.? Convention on the Oth of February, and that the Convention shall astemble on the'^Sth of tte tame month.
