'Hi K l-VENliNG STAR WASHINGTON CITY: THI RSIM Y Frbrurr 21 Spirit *f the >l*rniu( Pre?s The lmtfllig'nter argues the Impolicy of insist ing. at though tbeT vrere essential to an adjust ment of pending difficulties, on any regulations for the administration of territory which has not yet been acquired. The Republican contends Mr. Stanton's army bill " doe* not propose to confer upon tfce Prest dent any power to ' coerce a State,' but limply to protect the public property against robbery and plunder." Tai Sbttlbxest of the Tbocble* or tiib Ttxbs ?Editor of tk* Star: 1 agree with your correspondent, '-Union," that the conservative members of the Peace Convention, now assem bled 1b this city, should not permit the disorgan iiers to defeat its object by preventing action; but that, in such an event, and in the event alio of Congress doing nothing satisfactory, they should unite with the conservative members of the latter body in recommencing unofficially a plan of settlement of their own But I do not agree with him that It Is absolutely necessary thev should sulimit a definite proposition, though It would be advisable to do so. They have only to recommend the call of a National Convention by the Legislatures of the ?tafs In pursuance of Ha ItK setio I a e\t PnnvAntlnn B nH Ia ran naat the Border State# to await the rtsult of such appeal to the sober second thought of the people That a paper alined by the eminent conservative leader* now In tbta city, and who, in virtue of the revolution which h*s taken place in the opin ions and feeling* of the maawi in both sections, are the representative men of the American people, would accomplish its object, cannot be doubted by any intelligent observer of the signs of the times Tbe fifth article of the United States Constitu tion provides that "Congress, whenever two-thirds of both Homes shall deem it nccessary, shall pro post amendments to the Constitution, or on appli cation of Iht Legislatures of two-thirds of the several Slates, shall call a convention for propo sing amendments, which, in either case, shall be ralnl to all intents and purposes, as part of the Constitution, when ratified by the Legislatures of inTit-j uurin j or i?? itrerut oiatej, or ?y ecmren fimi in thru-fourths therftf, as one or tht other mode of ratification shall bt proposed 6y Co? gretsV Note.?The writer of the above communication, like many other truly patriotic men, ia deceiving himself with this idea that the promulgation of a mere proposition to hold a National Convention will be sufficient to hold the border states in the Union. Upon it alone, the-Union party would be wept oat of existence in three months, in tho#e States. Such is the belief of every member of the Peace Congress and every member of the Congress of the United States, except Mr. H. Winter Davis, from thnir Statn What is really required, Is a report from the Peace Cougres* recommending term* for the set tlement of the fugitive slave question, and the questions of slavery in the states and in Territo ries already the property of the United Slates, and the simple submission of whatever the Feare Congress thus recommend, to the people of the United States in National Convention assembled* bp authority of Congrcu. If some such a settle ment is not obtained, our correspondent will find bis panacea of no avail whatever in the border laveholding States; or every one of their legiti mate representatives are woefully In error with reference to the true state of their popular mind ust now. Tib Pkaci Cosvbuti02i yesterday discussed the various propositions before them, without coming to a vote upon any of them. The speaker* were Messrs James Smith, Dudley Field, and Dodge, of N. V ; Fre'inghuysen. of N. J ; Tuck, of N. H , and others. They are ?-jtpected to con tinue the discussion to-day. Many of the dele gates desire to come to the vote to-morrow? Washington's birthday?and will probably cjrry that point We find that the friends of a proper settlement of the troubles of the times among thein eem to be, satisfied that when the vote may be taken, a proposition upon which the border Slates can be kept true to the Government of the United mill v ? - J?- 1 . ? W ?A* ?-X suupteu . Captaik M. C. Meigs, of U. Engineers, re turned to his home In thi* city last evening, and this morning, we learn, was restored to his late position In charge of the construction of the Gov ernment Aqueduct, by order of Secretary Holt. It seems to be understood that he will also soon be ordered to resume the charge of the work on the extension of the Capitol and Tost Office De partment building. We are very sure that his return to these positions ere tbe authority of tbe existing Administration expires,will give as gen eral satisfaction to the Washington public as aught that ccnld possibly occur in such matters. Thk Militaey Paba.dk to-xoiiow promises to be one of the finest ever seen in this city. Fall particulars of It will of course be found in to morrow afternoon's Star.

Mr. Anderson, of Ky..asked the gentleman from Virginia (Mr. Garnett) if he was for the Inlon ? Mr. Garnett replied that he was for Virginia seceding at the earliest possible moment. After a lengthy debate, the committee rose and reported progress, when the Hout took a recess until 7 o'clock, and upon reassembling Mr Riithn of .North Carolina, made a secession speech, after which the House adjourned.

Mr. Dootittle said this was not a cotrcive measure, but a measure of pea e Mr Hunter was glad to learn that the Senator from Wisconsin did not vote for this bill as a co ercive measure, lie boptd no party would com mit Itself to coercion, but if such was not the in tention, he saw no netd of the bill. Mr. Powell thought that this bill was int< n<l< d to compel the postmasters of the slaveholding Mates to distribute incendiary publications or ebc leave the mall service Mr. Fessenden defended the policy of the bill The southern Senators wished to make that side of the Chamber acknowledge the lawfulntssof secession. Mr. Douglas thought the measure one of but believed thai offensive terms should be stricken out.

There seeins to be quite a dissension in several of tbe Foreign Legations litre growing out of the secession question. For instance, it appears that very contradictory reports have reached the French court touching the secession of the cotton Statis M. Mercier, the new French Minister since his arrival in Washington last fall, has been in the constant keeping of Senators Benjamin, Slidt 11, Mason et omm ztnus. The con*rnii?nrp ia \t Mercier is a thorough aeccaaionlst, and has report ed to hit Government views altogether favwrable to the ?ecedt<i states and against any hope of a rem edy or .econstruction. Very different reporU have in the meantime reached Napoleon through his Cor.suls and other source#, and 1 lenrn upon relia ble authority that some explanation has been de manded of the Legation here. Baron Stoeckl, the representative of Russia, also draws nil his views of our national :?itairs from southern statesmen. These he faithfully communicates to Lis imperial master at St l'ttern bur^. The well established rule of European policy is to rec.oirnize t!ie indencnddir* of iu> n?w i: "? ment until tbe same Lai been recognized by tbe Government out of which tbe new one Laj been carved There 1 ai been but one exception to tbi? rule in F.urot e for a century past, and tbat was tbe recognition of tue independence of iiel^ium by tbe Congrtss <?f Vienna in Ip3l.

Alter waiting until ail thingswere ready, they were admitted into the Presidential presence with a rush and ireneral scramble Gen. Delafkld Smith addressed .Mr Lincoln in a speech of welcome, alluding to the fa<-t that the hall had only been occupied on three occasions for the reception of public men?once for Web ster, once for Clay, and now for Abrahun Lin coln. Mr. Lincoln responded as follows: Mr. Chairman : 1 did not understand, when brought Into this room, that I was to make a speech. It was ?ot intimated to me that I was about to enter the room where Webster and Olny had made speeches, and where, In my position, 1 might be expected to do something like those men, or something unworthy of myself or my au dience. I have been occupying a position, since th?

He then bad an interview with a committee from Baltlmo e, who urged him to callthe Legis lature together. The interview was held tbe day before Christinas, in which taunta were uaed and mni9i';ui msue to mi j^r?"iuu wifiy u dc per* listed in his refusal to call the Legislature to gether, together with threats of shedding blo<d, and preventing the inauguration of Mr Lincoln, i On the nut morning afVr the interview be re- ) ceived two anonymous letters, in which he wm advi?ed of a movement on foot to bring to bear u|>on him a pressure that would compel him to call together the Legislature, and then. If the Legislature was called, to pass resolutions carry ing Msryland with the South, in order that the Capitol might he seized by an armed force The following ?ab>>ath a gentleman from Washington called upon him?four or five others were pres ent?who went over very much the sam* grounds set forth by the Richmond Enquirer of the 17th of December, that the design was to break up the j Government, carry Maryland with the 5outh. I that the rmlon of the District to the United State* should cease, and they mlghtget p< sv-asion of this Capitol and the archives of the Govern ment His brother manifested some feeling that b?' should be < ounected with tho?e engaged In this movement, and he explained by saving that be could not help knowing about It. He described the leader of the movement, and after he left the room they al! atrreed upon the same Individual as ; the one he b*d dfscribed. He gave the exact ' number of men who were rccent'y organizing 1 here and in Baltimore. With reference to Judge Handy, of Miss , Gov. Hick* said : ''Judge Handv s*ld to ine, among other things, that Lincoln nnrt Hamlin never would be Installed into office I reminded bim of what the Consti tution said about one State entering Into an agree ment with another and he said they bad watched that point, and did not Intend to violate the Con stitution I ashed him how he would obviate the ' difficulty? H*- s<tid they wanted Mississippi to go out. say to-day, Maryland to-morrow, ft?d so on, until all tbe >'nt<s south or Mason ana Dixon s | line were out and then they would form a South- : era L'uion I relied that though I deprecated j the election of Lincoln as much a* he or any man | could, I did not think it was a cause for breaking up this Union; that If the devil had heen elected President of the United States. In a lawful man ner, I should not like to sec the Union broken up bcc;uise of that " He bad become satisfied that there Is no present dinner from without the State of Maryland of any concerted action against the District of Columbia or the Federal property there He did not helleve that any such party now exsted In Maryland, al though at one time he believed It was seriously contt in plated. During the trouble and excitement consequent upon the John Brown raid, he received h number of copies of letters from Got. Wise, all of which were anonymous but one, and that was written from Washington county. He thinks it would bave been far better If Secretary Floyd had p liu miciiuuii i*i ur irimi nc rtiei vra, ana woiCD I subsequent event* proved to be of Importance. | The l"tters he (Gov Hicks) received. at this time were much more specific, and entitled to more I credit than th'?e were. If be believed, for a mo ment. tbat It would conduce to the public inter est or safety, he would leave all this pile of letter* with the committee, wblcb he deemed so import ant to himself In concluding his testimony, he said: "I be lieve that there was at one lime an organization to attack th?- public property In the District, but I do not believe it exists now. though It may. I have no doubt that there are secret organizations now in Baltimore, limited in numbers and power, I for the purpose of thwarting the regular course of public affairs, not to attack the public property in this District This is mere opinion, based upon such information as I have stated here.
