What Mr. Wise ra^ans by this farfaronade Is per haps best explained by tbe following paragraph from his organ, the Richmond Enquirer, (the italics are that journal's.) published as late as Tuesday last: " But we tell tbe people of Washington, at the ame time, that their Itvesand property are placed In manifest jeojQardv by the Intrigues of Scott, cewara a.

But to soon at the State of Virginia shnll take acttr* measurft of resistanc* to black repub lican rule, her authorities cannot and will net brook tke pretence of a Fcdtral nrmy of coercion at Washington.

But least this might not prove the case, it will be well for aome good Union man In Princess Anne to slip a red feather under his Excellency's coat tail, that be may, while indulging In his present fit of ? ? <> tiwui mi isiicica military capacity aud prowess, strut himself to death ere reaching the Potomac at the bead of his hypothetical host' Dan Rice ain't a circumstance to the glorious ex Oorernor when the latter, donning cap and bells, gct? fairly "In the rinj:," as on th's and previous occasions. The Pzaci Cohokkss.?This body sat for a short time only, yesterday, and will wait the re port of the committee of one from each State, to whom all the plans ?f adjustment have been re ferred, before acting definitely on any business The committee consists of the following gentle men : Guthrie, Ky., Chairman; Fowler, N. H ; Hall, Vt ; Ames, R I ; Baldwin, Conn ; Vroom. W.J; White, Pa.; Bates, Del ; John ton, Md ; Seddon, Va ; Ruifla, N. C.; I", wing, Ohio; Smith, lad ; Logan, 111.; Harlan, Iowa. The general Impression appears to be that In rasa of the Committee failing to agree on any plan of compromise that the Maryland delegation will press on tbe Conference the proposition for call in* a National Convention, thus transferring the | whole question direct to the people. The meetings have thus far been very harmo nious, and there Is an evident desire not to dis agree. The election in Tennessee to-day, for can didates to a Convention, will, should she follow tbe lead of Virginia, have a favorable (Sect on the deliberations of the Confereuce. Senators CelLamsr, Wade and other Republi can leaders, say that they will vote to submit the proposition of the Coufereuoe to a direct vote of the oeoDle. From ail we can learn, our previously expressed opinion that the Convention will recommend a settlement by a large majority vole from both section*?the South and the North?remain* un changed We know tint members of the body from the North, who came bere indisposed to make any concessions whatever, as well ss mem bers from the South who came bere disposed to be very exacting In the premises, have, both, modified their views. Or, In other words: that the growing disposition of the South in the body to ssk only fair and reasonable terms, Is beln^ met by an increased disposition on the pirt of the North to grant everything that may really be necessary to secure, not hypothetical, but the ubstanti&l rights of the South, and to enable the Unionists of that section speedily to overthrow the spirit of disunion, from the Potomac to the Eio Grande. T?r?tow Wmd, Esq.?V'esterday afternoon we received a dispatch snnounclng that the Senate of the New York Leglalature had unanimously elected Thuriow Weed, Esq., to be a Commit a!oner from New York In the Peace Convention, rut Judge Addison Gardner, declined on account of 111 health; and this morning we have news of the confirmation of the Senate's action by the lower house. We regard Mr. Weed's election, under the cir cumstances, as embracing positive proof that the Virginia election has inclined the Republican Mrtv Af ltv> r 1 ? _? , J ^?IV IVfl VWUWW (II lj v. i? Legislature, to a full and final settlement of the troubles of the time* to the enWe satisfaction cf all real l'ulon men of the border slaveholding Statea, with exceptions (In that Legislature) so Inconsiderable as that tbe objector* could make no opposition to his selection. From tbe day of tbe election Mr Weed took tbe ground that tbe South Is entitled, as matters stand, to a proper settlemeut of tbe troubles, and has urged his views so as to have imbitw-red aboli tionism against him even more than It was ever lmblttered against the South. He Is emphatically tbe head and front of the Union party of tbe North, and will have more Influence with his political frieads la effecting a harmonious settle, meat thaa aay other living man These facta be ing well known to all statesman here, great joy ia frit over his selection by all true friends of tbe raloa. at Tim Old Gaxi ?Yesterday, iflrr the 4tputari of Col.

He expressed a belief that If Congress would throw aside party prejudices, the difficulty could he speedily and amicably adjusted. Mr Kellogg, of 111., wss in favor of suneoder ing all party platforms He said that Mr. Lincoln had declared In one of his speeches that the South was entitled to sn efficient fugitive slave law, and all the difficulty bad srlsen from a conflict of opinion with regard to the moral character of the institution of slavery.

Seeing an article In the ilera!d of the 2d. from the correspondence of the Baltimore American, dated Charleston, Jan. 29,1961, statin/ fnt there were about fifty large pieces of ordinance,together with several bombs and howitzers mounted on the Citadel green and on the Battery (promenade) of ChsrlMlon. hac inHnrpH mo .* t?K?Yiit ?a da.i * , _ _ ?

Fort Johnson it one and a half mile* distant from Fort Sumter, and is mounted with a few cannon of 24-pound caliber. The batteries on Lighthouse Island are three and three eighths miles disttfnt, and mostly of small artillery, and consequently cannot reach Sumter. Cuttle Plnckney Is two and a half miles distant, and can bring but three 42-pounders and eleven 32-ponndert agalnat Sumter?tbete with Little or no effect. The Green and Charleston batteries are miles from Sumter, and are only to be tued in c?te vessels should get into the narbor. Fort Snmter baa four 42 pounders, live 10 inch columblads. and seven 32-p>undert to bear on Fort Moultrie, the former in bombproof casemates; also an equal number against Fort Johnson and Commlntft Point. .tikjor Anderson baa row nearly all bis pur mounted, having thirty guna inounUd on the ramparts to sweep the horizon, most of them im pounder*. and can be so elevated as to strike an object at tbe distance of a quarter of a mite from Its walls. Every part of the fort has been strength ened so as to make It bombproof Since iny arrival In New York I have heard a great many say Fort Sumter cannot be relnf-'trced without opposition from tbe troop* or authorities of Charleston, and a aerloua loaa of life.

They fame taitlier together and by agreement so return, l.leotenant Hall, it will be remembered, <-ame from Fort S.imter with 41* pate bet from Major Andersoa, The President communicated to Cr-ngress to day the corr< tpoodence between himself and Col. Hayne. the ^outh Carolina Commiasioner The substance an<l concluding portion of tbe letter from the Presideut to Col flayne you published yesVrday in advance. Tbe letter from Col Hayne to tbe President in reply, communicated yesterday. ha* been sup pressed by tbe President In tbla letter Col Hayne comments witb ureat sereritv on the Government for having shifted its grounds for bol?ilog posies ion of Fort Sumter and eonttnning a parriaon there; that ia to aay, its abandonment of the posi tion aaaumed of "protecting the public property," and now rejecting the demand of South Carolina on tbe |! round that tue Federal Government baa excluaive jurisdiction In Fort Sumter, which 1a compatible with tbe right of eminent domain In South Carolina. Tbla portion of Col. Hsyno's letter wjs In very strong language, and It baa probably been deemed impertinent and returned to tbe Commissioner. This may be the reason why it was not sent to Congress. A Senator who was cognizant of this rejoinder of Col. Hayne expressed great surprise at tbe withholding of the closing document. An explanation, I understand, will be asked for Col. Hnyne started home to report to his Gov ernment this morning, accompanied by Lt Hall as bearer of dispatches to Maj. Anderson. The demand for the surrender of Fort Sumter having b?en positively declined, it is presumed an attack will bemadeon the fort immediately, as the honor of the State is staked on the undertaking Those who profess to be in the confidence of the Government anticipate immediate warlike tidings from Charleston. Major Anderson has received Instructions to defend himself with vigor, If at tacked. If the lives of Major Anderson and bis brave and loyal men are thus placed in peril, lt will create an excitement throughout the country without parallel. 7 hi Wbathke.?The following report of the weather for the morning is made from the Amer lean Consolidated Telegraph Line to the Smith sonian Institution.

Tn Reason Wit Fobt Pickers was Not Attacked ? Major Chase, the commander of the State troops at Pensacola, pissed through Colum bus, Ga, on the 4th inat . en route to Tallahaatr, to have a conference with Gov. Perry, of Florida. The Columbus Times says: In a brief conversa tion with him, we learned that it Is the policy of our men to avoid a conflict with the Federal troops r.ntll after the 4th of March The reasons for which course were that so strongly a fortified place as Pickens out lit not to be stormed, but captured by bombardment or aiege; and time was necessary ?o cr>mp:ere preparations lor a successful attack That a victory would doubtless follow a de?jw>rate char^r upon the fort with the Iom of seventy-five out of one hundred men, but Jt was a qnestlon of doubtful expediency, not to aay a dis play of bad generalshl p. to wl n a battle at so coat J y a sacrifice That one nundred and ten men were In the fort, sufficient to msnsge the guns The howitzers on the angles were capable of being fired at the rate of ten shots to the minute, which would do terrible slsuKhter. That the fort could be taken in the right war and the right time. That a demand would be m?de by the commis sioners sent to W sshlngton by the Southern Con gress, and on failure of its acceptance preparations for an attack would tegin The arrival of the Boooklyn wi h its few men was not a matter of much consequence Major Chase's opinion was that Lieut. Siemmer, in command of the Federal troops, would defend the fort. During Major Chase's absence, Col. Tennent Lomax has com mand at Penaacela The Pentacola Observer of the 28th ultimo, noticing the arrival thereof the Hon. S. R. Mai lory, rtmarKi a* loiiows: "He made In our pretence the gratifying announcement tbat tbe passive or non -eaiatance poller purt jed bv Major Cbase hes been cordially and full* approved by Davis, Slldell, Toombs, Clay, Benjamin, Hunter, and many other leading southern men in Wash ington. whose fidelity to tbe Interests of toeSoutb cannot be questioned.
