S., take up arms against Mid Stat*-' If the State of Virginia should secede from 1he Union, would Capt S. aid the general govern ment with force of arms to coerce said Slate? To the foregoing questions, Capt. S answered ?'l would not." To the question what would Capt S. do.

On the same day General Weightman replies : 'Atthelnterviewalludedto, you were informed, verbally, that certain reports bad reached these headquarters concerning declarations made by you. These reports you requested to be furnished you in writing, and you were promised that tbey should be so communicated. Positive information bis been received st these headquarters that you bave, at various times, declared that in crialn contingencies you would not serve the United States Government for the protection of its prop erty la this city, as against the forces of a state, bat would resign snajoin tbe forces of that State The Government of the United States desires no unwilling service, and I do not deem it consistent with my duty to band a commission to any officer who makes bis fidelity and obedience to orders In any manner conditional." Capt. SchteflVr replies on the 9th of February, cnaracierizing ite leuer or oen. w. as ;'"disia genuoiis." and adda:?' Had you Intended to do ine the leaat justice, you would have stated wh?.t rou knew to be the fact?that the proposition dis tinctly made to me was, would I, lo the event of tkt state of Mqfyland or tk State of Virginia se ceding from the Union, take up arm* against said States, or eicber of them? Such was the test of loyalty applied to me, and which I, on the in stant, rej-ct^d; such Is the condition upon which. In my bumble opinion, every honorable man, native and citizen of Maryland, should accept a commission for service In this District." The Concbet To-sight ?Read the programme of the concrrt to be given to-night at th? Smith sonian Institution, for the bent fit of Company C, Washington Light Infantry. It will be seen that the selections are well made, and that some of the >*st amateur singers of Washington are to par ticipate. Tbe full Marine Band has also been engaged, and will perform in its beststvlesvvcral popular overtures. Hon John Cochrane, of New York, will be present lo behalf of the todies of Washington to present a beautiful stand of murk er*' colors to the company, and Mr. Clampltt, of Company C, will receive the gift on the part of the corps There will be a fine display of uni forms, as Company C will be out la full number*, snd several other volunteer companies from Georgetown and Washing ion have determined to be present in full dress uniform A great time is anticipated, as Company C has determined that in all respects this shall be tkt concert of the seasuii.

Jt Tits Militia Bill or thi Distbict or Co LCMtu ? In tbe Senate, yesterday. Mr. Wilton moved to take up tbe bill for tbe better organiza tion of tbe militia of the District of Columbia. Tbe bill, be said.was prepared and offered under tbe approval of Gen. Jesup, Major Lee, General Weightman. and Col Htckey It b?d paaaed tbe House laat year, and waa agreed to by the Senate committee. Mr Maulsbury wished to ask wbat was tbe re? aon why this bill for tbe reorganization of the militia was preaaed at tbia time? He did not know whether any particular reasons exlat, but if they do, what are they ? .... .. vw>v< >uu? vvujc *wu */i lurrr yr-.ir* tto there wag an effort to rt-viae the militia lawa of the District A committee waa appointed to do ao. and their report waa approved by Oot. Floyd, the r*ecretary of War. It waa not origi nated with any view to exiatlng difficulties, but laat year bad the approval of the Committee on the Militia, and waa warmly urged by Col. Htckey. Mr. Saulabury wlabed that the public ahouid not mlatnke the motive for which thia bill la now nrtred upon Congreas. He waa attached to the Union, and aa much oppoaed to aeceaaion aa any body, but thought there waa no neceaalty for the paasage of thia act at thia time Mr Maaon called attention to the section pre a^rlblng an oath to aupport the Conatitution to be taken by the privates or the militia. Mr. Wilaoti aald it waa aimply an oath to aup port the Conatitution and lawa of the United Statea Mr Maaon knew It waa cuatomary, at least in Virginia, for the officera to take auch an oath; but be never knew that the men were called to do ao. T&ese militiamen are compelled to serve without their will, and such an oath might be against their conscience. He would therefore strike out the provision for administering the oath, except to the officers. Mr Johnson, of Ark., said the bill bad been prepared years ago, and the committee had full confidence in It. but he believed it had never re ceived any serious consideration by the commit tee. He would confess the truth with regard to himself that he had never read It. He wished the bill to pass, bat thought it best to recommit It to the Committee on Military Affairs for reex amination. Mr. Bragg thought the bill was the old bill, but now found that a section providing for the oath to privates is now incorporated. He thought there was no propriety in compelling privates to take the oathT Mr Mason moved to strike from the section prescribing the oath tbe words " non-commls sicned officer* and privates." Mr. Wilson said the bill was placed in bis ktnili )? C?I UI.V- ?j J ' * vv. U11.BVJ, urn waa ^iriiliru 19 DC DBQ received It. The provision In regard to the oath was different from that which came from the Houae, and to which Senators objected aa a "test oath " The Trcslding Officer said that the motion of the Senator from Arkansas to re-commit took pre cedence of the motion to amend. Mr. Wilson would not object if the Senator bom Arkansas wUhed to have an opportunity of reexamining the bill. Mr Grimes hoped the motion of the Senator from Virginia (Mr. Mason) would prevail. A man who Is a coward or a traitor at heart will still be a coward or a traitor, though he pile oath on onth mountains high. Mr. Hale thought that now the provision for the oath was in the bill It ought not to be stricken out Why should privates be excused from swear ing to maintain the Constitution and laws of tlieir country? For what had we marred the public Srounds and built an armory If not for the ?ske of Hiving a militia here to aid in the defense and protection of the Constitution and Government of the country? Why such sensitiveness amongst gentlemen on this subject ? What is there In the state of the tunes that the Senate will not pass a bill until the provision for an oath to support the Constitution and 1?M nf n?i??? ?. ?. .X u va IUV UUltCU Cwlt'8 IS stricken cut? Mr Hemphill stated that officers and private? in actual service were required to take the oath, but not privates of militia. The bill was then recommitted to the Commit tee on Military Affairs.

Tub Tcekverris Masquerade Ball.?The ball of the Turnvereins, on Tuesday night, was an exceedingly pleasant affair Everybody seemed iu high spirits,and the variouscharartersaanumed were well represented, and caused no little amuse ment. Two transparencies were borne by the procession upon entering the hall with th< mot toes, "Keep step to the music of the Union," and "Virginia, the saver of the Union." At twelve o'clock the masks were removed, and a pleasant scene of agreeable surprises ensued.

The Koc?*-da of the concert are to be applied to the juldation ef tb? debt of the church, a worthy object, which should be cheerfully seconded-by the public.
