Tbe secession of Maryland is war, a rvar upon the instant, a war without truce, and a war to be terminated only with the humiliation of one of the parties to it." V~r Th?L*nicn feeling in Kentucky strengthens every aay, *r.a is naming in enecx upon toe L,eg:?lature in session at Frankfort. On Friday, the Senate, by a very decisive vote, passed a resolution declaring it inexpedient at this time to take any action towards calling a State Convention. The Senate had also made an appeal to the South I to stop the revolution, and to Congress to call a National Convention, and proposes adjourning ever to the '24th of April to await a response to theee appeals. The example of Kentucky is one that .Maryland may follow, certainly without dishoaar, and. we think, wisely Mr Ira Harris has been nominated by the Republican caucus of the New York Legislature as the successoref Mr. Seward in the U.S. Senate. TH? ? tiv ?UB HHM?.

From the hasty glance we have been able to give thl? work, It strikes us as by far the most vigorous exposure of the fallacies of figures and argument of the mischievous Helper book that has yet appeared. irr This 4th of February Is a day of Important events It is the day appointed for the mqgting of the Border State Compromise Union Convention in this city; and for tbe assembling of the independent' Southern Confederacy Congress at Montgomery. Alabama, and It ia alan the it?u apart for the election of delegates to & State Convention in Virginia, on the direct question of weeaion ^ T~ A great Union meeting was held at Charlestown, Massachusetts. on Saturday night, at which Mr Everett spoke. The meeting endorsed the Crittendea resolutions and concurred in the sentiment of Mr Sewar i. '-that the question of slavery is uot now to bf taken iuto account. We are to save the l.'nion first, and will then save all that is worth saving " The VaLKDK Tor^ A di>3E*4K3 of .Messrs Slidell and Benjamin, in the Senate to-day, were listened t" by a ljrife audience.

Feb 8?aa effort will br made by a mtmbcr of the Select committee of Fife to j report a joint insolation providing for tbe call of a National Con??ntton, fat tbe adjustment cf exj lstlng difficulties. An cftclal copy of the Loolfelana Ord'.nade cf I Secession has K-?ti MrrirMl mil th? from that State. with the eftception of Mr Bou llgny, will probably withdraw from the deliberations of Coo<jrrw to-morrow.

Col. Hayne has replied, tbat If he could be assured thst'no reinforcements would be sent South, he would defer bis letter till he could have a consultation With his Governor A letter from Col. Hayne Wa* Sent to the President, and the Secretary of War state*, in reply, tbat without pledging the President not to send reinforcement*, be would say tbat none would be enI unless Maj Anderson demanded thetn This state of tbe case Col Havne communicated to tbe Legislature of South Carolina, when tbe resolutions were passed offering to pay for tbe forts, and, If refused, demanding a surrender Thrse resolutions have been laid before tbe President by Colonel Hayne, who awaits a replf. The Presideut, aa is generally supposed, will refuse to dispose of tbe forts, and so inform Colonel llayne. I? fact tbe latter anticipates this. When be receipts tbe an?wer be will return to Sontb Carolina. This Is the truthful condition of these negotia?U?. J * V. a * - *" - " * >iuub, n?u mux iury inns at prtifni Until Uol tlayne communicates the President'* action to South Carolina no attack will be made on Fort Sumter. Lieut J E Jewett, LT 9. N , of Ky , arrived here on Friday evening from I'er.sacola, and in consequence of the peculiar circumstances under which he left that city and made the transit of the State of Florida, be made haste to call ur>on Senator Crittenden, and report the facts to him and solicit bis advice It appears that as soon as It was known that Lieut. Jewett was about to leave Pensacola, the State authorities of Florida ordered him to be arrested. and would not ptfmit him to depart uiil*-ss upon his parole of honor that he would never take up arms at'aiist the State of Florida. The document was duly drawn and presented to the Lieutenant, who accepted it a* the only meinf of escape from imprisonment. Without this docu iijrm ne couia not nave passed through t!>e State. It seems that a plan bad been ccncocted In New Orleans for seizing the Crusader, but her commander was not to be entrapped. It was arranged that Lieut. MKffitt should visit New Orleans, and whilst there should be complimented with a dinner All the officers were to be Invited, and the \vhol? party made drunk. The cltv authorities were then to t:ikeaule* possession of the ship, and anchor her oil in the stream. A gentleman called on Gen. Scott to da?, and Inquired If it would besifeto bring bis family here. TheGeueral referred him to one of his aids, who, it is said, replied that be thinks it sale now, the necessary point* all being guarded The ej tects of thf. panic.
