Mr. Cochrane said that he was commissioned iu ltehalf of the Udies of Washington to present *h;- rotors to the company. After a complimen tary allusion to the gallantry and chivalry of the company, ana the virtue. patriotism and beauty of tiie fair dono-s. be said that this occasion was one rife with more associations than were con nected with the conference of a g'ft. We stood here in the focal llirht of events which applied m<*st Intimately to the bosoms, the. family llre tdes, the beurthst'inscf us ail, the story of which even now was making its way across the waters and awakening from their slumbers the potentates of Knrope, and sntnmonlng to the contest the jpiriM of malignity. as well as those of pood,.the vcrldovfr. Mr. C. dwelt at some length upon th? present position of the American Union be fore the eyes of the civilized world, and upon the ?Sorts now being made to stay the avalanche of disunion. Mr C spoke of the assembling and quartering in this city of a portion of the regular Army, and of what has been alleged in relation thereto; of the charges that we are to be au?>jected to a mil itary deapoUsui, mid that the great captain of our bust is to be converted into the tyraut who is to control our liberties, etc., etc. Were it not for this defensive array; were it not for the arms of the soldierv; were it not for the strength of our citizen soldiery about us. we in'.eht at this time be in the midst of the havoc cf civil war rt hUe war ^net desolation are threatening around, to whom are we indebted for the peace and the safety we now enjoy if not to the conservative strength, wtiich, organized and disciplined in the regular Army and in the army of tte titlien soldiery, i> extrhdrd around u> by night and djv * .Mr C went on to sp*ak cf toercion,'* and asked whv. then, are >*e gree'ed witb objections to coerrioi.? Why is it proclaimed tbat no force hall be administered upon the refractory? Why 11 it tbat tbe fruits of disobedience, instead of being visited upon the heads of the refractory, shall be returned upon the beads of the innocent; tbat we who abide by tbe laws shall sutler fur the misdeeds of those who violate them?" He then went on to printout tbe difference between the "coercion of force" and tbe "coercion of the law," which neexplained at length, and th-n proceeded to say that it is to exreute the law for which our soldiery are enrolled; it is to proclaim that fo long as lurre ?i^or iu meir arms xutir leuow-citizens Dit^ dr-pend upc-n their patriotism to execute tbe law, ard to preserve peace and order within this city of Washington. Mr. Cochrane, after an illusion to the earnest gaze directed by all eves to tbe States of Virginia, Kentucky, and Tennessee, closed by an eloquent appeal to the women of America to rise in their majesty and peaceful might to tbe rescue We uk the mo'.ber toi:npre*s upon her boy tbe lesson that the disseverance ?>f this U niun is tbe destruc tion of tbe freedom of tbe world We ask her to teach all b*-r children, by all her influence, this great lesson: "Patriotism first; interest after wards" [Applause] Mr C then, in the name of th?- women of the *ity, presented the colors and arms to tbe com pany, saving that they symbolized the patriotism ai:d virtue of those who presented teem, and he was sure they would ever be an incentive to th? recipients to deeds of chivalry and military val' r Mr. Clampitt replitd. saving that it was with prid- and pleasure that he stood there to receive, hi r?-tjau m iue corps or wii!ct?

Mr. Blgley offered the following resolution : Reolvtrt, That we, the republican! of the Dis trict, entirely disapprove of the name of James A Wise as a Commissioner of Police, as reported in the Metropolitan police bill. [Awful suspense ] Mr Hawkins moved to lay It on the table. Agreed to. The Secretary desired to know if Mr. Pang born. of Boston, was present He had expected a speech from that gentleman, and If he was present h? wished to hear from him. Mr Pang born not being present, the President announced the presence of a delegation of thirty from the Republican Aisociation in Baltimore, and in a few remark* welcomed them to the Wig wsm He was informed that the editor of the German Republican paper in Baltimore was pres ent, and he was desirous of hearing from him.

Virginia would nut do it; Kentucky, Tennessee and other States would not do It; and Maryland would walk In their foot steps and remember them in the hour of danger She would stand by the Constitution and the laws; and, if nectssary, she would send her columns to help inaugurate Abraham Lincoln on the 4th of March The secessionists could uot get three out of ten of her citizens to engage in any such damn able scheme as breaking up this Government.

Mr. Semple.?He! that's it; jest what I want.

After some discussion, the motion was with arawn On motion of the Secretary It was agreed to display the new silk flag recently holshd over the wigwam upon the 4th of March Th? asocial Ion then adjourned with three r been for Abraham Lincoln and Hannibal Hamlin. Th? Coimpibact aoaisst th* Capital.?Mr. Howard, of Michigan, from the aelect committee to which wa? entrusted the duty of Investigating the truth of public rumor relative to the existence of a conspiracy to seize the Federal Capital and preventtne Inauguration of the Preaident elect, yesterday presented the report of that committee to the House. The committee, the report says, have pursued their labors with a determination on their part to ascertain the real farts as far as possible; and if sometimes they have permitted Inquiries and ad mitted testimony not exactly within the rules of eTidence, or within the scope of the resolutions, it Is to be attributed to their great anxiety to elicit the real facta and to remove unfounded apprehen ion*. The extraordinary excitement existing prior to the late Presidential election tod disaffected per sons, of high and low position^ afler the result of that election had become known, to consult to gether on the question pf submitting to that result, andalso upon various modes of resistance. Among other modes of resistance to counting the ballots and the Inauguration of Mr Lincoln, the seizure of the Capitol and the District of Columbia were discussed inf rmally in this city and elsewhere. Hut too much diversity of opinion seems to have existed to admit of the adoption of any well or ganized plan until some of^>e States commenced to reduce their theories or secession to practice. ?ince then perions thus disaffected seem to have adopted the idea that all resistance to the Govern ment, If there !s to be any, should have at least the color of Slate authority. If the purpose was it any time entertained of forming an organiza IS *- - - - ? nun? **ctrc? ur o}>pii, to wize IDU DlSiriCl or to lunibia, attack the Capitol, or prevent the inaugu ration of l\lr. Lincoln, It teem* to have l>een rendered contingent upon the secession of either Maryland or Virginia, or both, and the sanction ot one of those States. Certain organizations In this District and in Ma ryland. that prior to the election sqpm to have been an y political clubs, have since assumed the char acter cf military organizations, are now engaged In drilling, and expect to provide themselves with irms, some from the State authorities and others from private subscriptions. But, as far as the ;ommittee were able to learn their purposes, while they sympathized strongly with secession, there s no proof that they intend to attack either the Capitol or the District, unless the surrender should h# ripm*nHa/1 V>w /* wKuk *v?? ? ~ >x...x?vu tuj u k.?uMy w nuitu lucy ^ruicH a bigh degree of allegiance. Some of these com panlea tn Baltimore profess to be drilling for the lole purpose of preventing other military com panies from passing through the State of Mary land. Whether these representations of the pur poses of thrse companies be correct or not, the :ommittee have failed to discover any satisfactory vidence that they have any purpose whatever, a% i mere mob, without the aanctlon of State au thority, to attack the Capitol or any other public property in this District, or to seize the District. If It should be admitted that any one of these or ganizations were hostile to the Government, or :ntertatncd unHwfiri purposes, they are in no proper sense secret, and are therefore not such as ire contemplated in there-solution of the House. The committee are unanimously of the opinion that the evidence produced before them does not prove the existence of a secret organization here or slsewhere hostile lo the Government, that has for its object, upon its own responisbllltv, an attack upon the Capitol or any of the public property bere. or an interruption of any of the functions of he Government.
