Motmhti of Mm. Liscol*.?The ruah for the Star on Saturday, to get at tbe facta of the whether Mr. Lincoln was really In town or not, was something unprecedented In history of Ti?wsp?per sales But very man? of our repub lican friends, who had set their hearts upon meeting the President elect at the cars at 4 p. m , and nowtcre else, utterly refused, we regret to iy. to credit the report of his unexpected arrrival, despite our very explicit and circumstantial ac count of tkat afftir. No. indeed! They weren't to be sold, and Committeeman Schrelner and otters of the Republican Association delegation proclaimed their purpose to be at the cars In the afVmoon to receive Mr. Lincoln sccordlng to tbe'.rlns'ructions Hadn'tMr Lew Clephane and the Wide Awake delegation gone on in the morn ing train to Bnltimrre to roe^t Uncle Abe? Of course they had, and it was all right. The storv that l.lncoln was already here was a dodge to keep the republicans away from the cars when he rftrfarr've TfcaUwould'nt work. No, alr-ee! Meantime, Messrs Eckloff. Hodnon. and T B Brown, of tba Republican Association, might have been aeen mounted upon the top of a Big furniture wagon wending Its wav alowlv down Indiana avenue, said wagon being further laden with no end of flags, bannera, and other decora tions wherewith to ornament the "Wigwam" for the eye of tba President elect on his way from the cars They drove slowly, we say, as If aubltating whether to drive at all, '-halting between two opinions," whether Abe was here or there, and whether to decorate or no A halt was made and a delegation aent to the railroad station to get "the facta of the c?ae " There their souls were glad dened bv the poaltlve anurance from Gilbert that the Prtkldent elect bad not arrived, and to the contrary they were even then making the nec** aary arrangements for the extra train to bring him on from Baltimore. So the party concluded It was safe to unload their wagon and bang out their 'ba antra. On Saturday afWnoon there was a llf ljr scene In end about ih? railroad depot. It having been announced that >lr Lincoln would arrive by a special train at 4 o'clock p. m., and the report of his arrival by the mornlug train not being univer se.ly credited, at an early hour squads of the Incredulous were seen performing wonderful feats of locomotion through the rain towards tbe depot, all anxious to get a siiiht" at Mr Lincoln The stonecutters' sheds were even Invrsted by a regi ment of "irrepressible females;" disconsolate N. V s paced up and down the platform; truant urchins, with fearful visions of the wrath to come, si>d a tragedy In which they, with Indignant pjrlents," would piny conspicuous parts, boldly declared that 4 they'd see Linctum anyhow;" while here and there sauntered a hungry offlce s?tker, whr.se wistful glances at the cakfftand bore unm'stakeable evidence of a lean purse as weti as of an empty " yearning apparatus" >T?-nnwhile four o'clock arrived and passed, and ? no special train made Its appearance Presently mf ?un came cui one ny one, and aa tbe mlrris of tbe unbelieving became illumined, there vru a general expression of countenance aa though somebody hr.d been so]<}; but as tbe rain waa pouring down In torrents, there was no escape, end tbe crowd indulged in one or two jokes, a little whistling- and considerable swearing. As tbe Lour for the regular live-o'clock train ap proached. tbe anxiety was again manifested by ' scrouglng," on tbe part of those who were in the rear of tbe crowd, and the arrival of Mr. ?eward and Mr Washburn of ill , added to the excitement. Tbe train having entered tbe depot, four carriages were driven up to the rear car, from which Mr Seward soon emerged with Mrs Lin coln, who, with "Bob" and Kddie and Willie Lincoln, nurse, servant. 4c , became at once the target for comment and double-barreled stares. A few policemen opened a way for the party, who were Immediately passed from the car to the car riages and rapidly driven off. while tbe crowd plunged after through rain and mud, as if deter mined to escort a Presidential Dartv anvhow a J / ?" ? " AT WILLABD'S. Sc\ until the arrival of the afternoon train from Baltimore was there much of a rush to YVlllard's, and then the balls, parlora, and passages of that Immense building were crowded In a trice Con spicuous among the deeply interested ones during the afternoon was the form of the man who voted for Abe Lincoln In Fairfax county, Va , and was afterwards taken to a printing rffice by bis polit ical opponents, and daubed all over with print er's ink, and then rolled in a feather bed. He aeemed in fine spirits, and not particularly anx ious to force himself upon the notice of Mr Lin coln at present; doubtless depending on bis more superior claims to notice when he should think proper to urge them. Tbe Illinois detention called on Mr. Lincoln fB-1 body, beaded by Judge Douglas, about 2# rciocK p >n ; ana anrwirdi uen. Scott, who remained some time in conference with him |ft? was warmly greeted by the President elect, trbo expressed to the General his thanks for the 1 anny marks of attention be had shown him, 1 specially In detailing an escort from bis home the capital Gen Scott expressed bis great gratification st Mr. Lincoln's s<fe arrival, and ?pec?ally complimented him for choosing to avel from Harrlsbarg unattended by any dis play, but in a plain democratic way. Among the callers upon Mr Lincoln were the venerable Frank Blair and bis son, Montgomery Blair At a little before half-past five o'clock p m., the Fourteenth-street entrance to Wlllards' w>-s surrounded by qul:? a crowd of carious people, despite tbe heavy rain then falltn{{, anxious to ca<sti a first gl mpse of the Prrs.dmt's lady and **Bob" when they should arrive.

Mr Llacoln was then notified that the ante-rooms snd main parlors of the hotel were filed with ladies, who desired to pay their re spects, to which tne President elect very readily consented. The ladies then passed In review, ?ach being Introduced by the gentleman who ac companied her. Mr Lincoln underwent the new rdeel with much good humor At ten o'clock Mr Buchanan's Cabinet called and paid their respects, Jn response to Mr. Lin colu'i roup d'ttat at tbe White House in the moraine Their reception wu very pleasant The Imprrsaion made by Mr. Lincoln upon the niiidi of hie visitors of all classes w.s a very agreeable one. indeed Mrs. Lincoln did not receive callers on Satur dav night, in consequence of the fatigue from the day's travel.

A throng of ladlea called during the morning, to pay their respects to Mrs Llncola, who held quite a levee up to 2 p. m. The dispatch to the Baltimore pr.pers that Mr. Lincoln waa to give a public reception between 12 and I to-day. caused many persons to visit the hotel, who were of course disappointed, as no such reception came off. The projected serenade to Mr. Lincoln, pre vented on Saturday night by the rain, has, we hear, been indefinitely postponed, at his sugges tion. PUTTY OOOD Mayor Berret was applied to this morning for a w^j vi iuc vpcrtu uc wcvii uavc lunue \o Mr. Lincoln at the cars on Saturday afternoon If the reception ceremonies had not been so wa-ceremo nio .sJr nipped In the bud. Mayor B. laughingly replied that he would comply with the request with pleasurelf Mr. Richard NVallach would con sent to furnish his draught of the route-pro gramme Mr. Lincoln teould have followed, nad those same ceremonies come off! Pkksixtatio* or Epaulets. ? Among the many incidents connected with the celebration of Washington's birthday, we noticed a very In teresting one In front of the Columbian Armory. The ''Waablngton Rifles" (formerly " German eagers") were drawn up and went through their drill exercise in a thoroughly soldierly manner After which Lieut Colonel Schwarzman, their former captain, presented Capt. Balbach, who is now in command, with a splendid pair of epaulets on behalf of the company In a capital speech he expressed high regards for his successor as a man, as well as a reliant soldier and scientific military otfl er. Capt. Balbach, In reply, thanked hltn. saying that he would try to show himself worthy of the honor bestowed upon him. Mr Balbach is the senior captain of his batalion, and has command of It as such He has been an army rfflcer in Germany, his native land, and is exiled for participation of himself and men in the revolutiona'y war for republican Institutions in Badin in 1S49. which was suppressed by an in vading ariny of Prussians His sterling company of seventy men represents, besides the industrious mechanic, the solid, quiet, order-loving, tax paying. business community of the Germans. These Official ceremonies were conducted In the common language of our country, which shows that the parties concerned are up to the mark as American citizens bv aaalmilatlncr thpmu>lv?i with ui, even whilst cheriabing traditions of a beloved old home. Orphaxa' Court ?Thecourt on Saturday took up the case continued from the previous sittings of Henrv Larker. who was bound by two sets of indentures by different magistrates to different masters. Messrs. Toombs and Roby. Judge Pur reil set aside the Indentures, and bound him to Mr. H 8 Johnson, to learn the tradeof a snddler. The Jndue had discovered that he had been a wilil boy, and advised him togiveuphisold com pany forever, and try to make himself useful to society The bov seemed to be much affected, ihed ter.rs. and told the Judge be would try to do better in future.

I am not prepared to dlaruM tbe policy of levying ?uch a duty That we have tbo power to do ao there can be no doubt I appre hend that we are conarloua of tbe power we bold In our banda, by reaaon of our producing that staple ao necessary to the world. 1 doubt not that power will exert an Influence grant and mlgbtler tban armlea and navies We know that by an embargo we could aoon place, not only tbe United State*, but many of tbe European powera, under tbenecenalty of electing between auch n recogni tion of our Independence aa we require, w do mettle convulalons at home. Tbe Information In oar poaneaalon arema I* Joa tlfy auch an enquiry aa the resolution protiaaea It la a fact that some of tbe cotton now produood In tbla Confederacy la already aerklng a new channel to tbe ara We are Informed that nt Pit* burg. Pa., more than flU.000 bale* of cotton have already been received, conveyed thither up tbo Mlaalaalppl and Ohio river* We are alao In formed that more than flu,000 bales ef aottoa from n nip, ua , nave wrn Mnt by railroad to Mrk i port at Norfolk and Alexandria We are further Informed that the director* of the railroad* con necting with the principal Unea In onr territory, are now concerting srbemea for the purpoar or reducing frt*ighta on those roada. In order, la that way, to entice our cotton to markets In northern porta The reault of such a course. If successful,would. In the first place, necessarily be to make the block ade of our porta a matter of no importance to for eign nations; secondly, it would destroy all com merce with our own seaport*, and, thirdly, and most Important rt all. It would compel us to re eel re all the Imported goods we migbt need after paying dutiea on tnem In New York city. Theae considerations have Induced me to offer tbls res olution of Inquiry I do not tblnk that the rea olntion ahould elicit discussion at the preaent time, but after the committee on finance have made their report, it may become a grave matter for the consideration of tnls body.
