g ' THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: TtCSUlY rrtmn <K 1991. Spirit ( Ike >l*rnl?g Prm The Imttlhg'Berr argues that while a portion of the politician* lu the Border Shareholding State# are urging the people to Identify their dectlny !mmedia'ely with that of the Seceding Statea. the more ugaclou* ritizena of the latter clearly per - * ' ? ?- -?- tflTC ini( ine wriwre miu Muiiy v> , U> My nothing of their political harmony, will be better consulted by a retention of the former In their present Federal alliance. The H'p*H>tan says : "It ia a great mistake to suppose that the Union men, either of Tennessee or any other Southern State, are opposed to the forcible maintenance of tb? authority of tba Gov ernment It is the very thi n? tfcey are most anxious to witness, and if they exhibit any weakness, it it from an apprtktntion th*t tick may not b* tkt a/ i km J? ? >*?? A J i+Mm u II Tub Gms&t National Dijoeack:?It Is be* lieved at the War Department tbat the news telegraphed from tfae South yesterday to one of the Senator* conspiring againat the integrity of the Government?tbat General Twiggs had treach erously surrendered hia whole command to the revolutionary Convention of Tezaa?ia too true. Not long aince dispatches were received here from him, intimating anch a purpose on his part. Whereupon, orders were immediately iaaued to Col. Carloe A. Walte, (second in command in the deportment,) of first Infantry U .8. A., to relieve A wiggv. i ur ruuivi ?ua? \*?/ hli commlMton In the Army of the United States ) untrue, though he vras certainly some time since elected to be the commander-in-chief of the Georgia army. Ob the 8th of February Inst., he (Twiggs) ap pointed icommln'on, consisting of Major David H. Vinton, (qnartermaster,!MajorSackfield Mac tin, (paymaster,) and Capt. Robt. H. K. Whltely (ordnance department) " to meet th? commis sioners on behalf of the people of Texas?Meters. Thos 8. Deyine. ^??'l A. Maverick and T. N. Luckett?at such time and place as may be agreed upon, to transact sucb business u relates 10 me disposition of tbe public property, upon the de mands of the State of Texas." It was on tbe re ceipt of a copy of this order here, that Colonel Walte was directed to assume the command of the Department. According to a dispatch received at the Depart ment yesterday afternoon, the appointment of this commission had resulted as disgracefully as Twiggs Intended Vis: in orders from kim to every officer in command of a post in tbe military department of Texas (seventeen in number, in rlii<finv Han lnlnnln Iks nirtort ^ tn tnr. render to the agents of the revolutionary State Convention, without a tingle man in arms to en force their demand*, (aa far aa ia known here,) every particle of the military property in them, amounting to an aggregate of million* on millions of dollar* worth probably?arma, accoutrements provision*, horae*. cattle, wagons, Ac., Jcc. The advices reoeived \esterday represent that among the terms of this so infamous set of treachery, waa a stipulation reserving to the officers their side arma, and another aaying that the disarmed troops were 10 oe permutta xo oe carries to ine coast, for shipment out of Texas, In th? Govern ment wagons, which were subsequently to be accounted for to the revolutionists' The whole number of enlisted troopa under Twiggs command in Texas was 2.9U0, and they were scattered about for the most part over a frontier fifteen hundred mile* long. There are nearly all the etficers belonging to four regi ments?all the third Infantry, all the eighth in fantry, all tbe second cavalry, five companies of the first artillery, and live of the first infantry?40 companies in all?2U> commissioned officers and 8,9U0 enlisted men?being more than are in any other one Department of the service. It is yet problematical whether the officersccm manding porta there have not refused to obey Twlgga' treacherous order, which he had no power to enforce, we apprehend, If restated. Our b?U?f is, that such wholesale robbery and treach ery could not be worked to a successful conclu sion at all the posts of the Department. The Infa mously disgraceful scheme was doubtless con cocted here by the men in high places, sworn to protect the rights of the Government of the United States, who plotted the seizure of the forts. 8cc., la the Sooth All of the latter were surrendered to overwhelmingly superior military force. In this, case, however, if the orders of Twiggs have been obeyed, the surrenders have been made without there having been brought a man in arini to sostain them, to far as is yet known here. Tax Trace CosvxaTio.i ? See elsewhere, ir to-day' Star, accounts descriptive of yeaterday'i proceedings in the Peace Convention. The ex cltement in its midst waa far greater than on anv previous occasion. It grew out of persis'entef forts of the anti-compromisers, under the lead ol Mr. Field, to stave off final action on the on< hand, and of extreme demands, (made by Mi Heddon. we apprehend,) when it was clear tha urging them was only likely to further the end of those bent on defeating all and an v com pro mlse whatever. Mr. Guthrie la understood t have become excited to the point of starting t leave the hail, upon the ground that the anti-corn promiser* were evidently trifling with those wb were discharging their duties as rommiestonei in good faith; bat he wa? persuaded to remain and subsequently again took his leading part 1 disposing of the business before them. Whe they sdjoarnsd for dinner the friends of compr< miss were nearly nil hopeless of being able to a( eompUsh any final result whatever; as, und< their rules, the minority, if ^determined, coul prevent n final vote from bvfog taken, by inaistln on proposing nnd speaking toamendmertawhoU to kill time. On reassembling, the majority mads up the minds to alt all night, If that might be necessai to get through with the labor of conaidering a propositions to amend any portion of the rspor that might be essayed That was accomplishes however, by half past f o'clock a m ; when tb? adjourned, having entirely finished their work < considering amend meats to the report by sectloi or branches. Tbia left before them for to-da>'a eonalderatloi merely Bach propositions u may be ottered In tl nature of aubatitutes for the whole report; i which we now know of but two. One, to be o fared by Mr Chase, to adjourn over until the 41 of April, la order (aa lie frienda allege) to teat tl aiaearlty of tbe Ua ion lam of the border slaveboli lag Males; aad another (probably to be offer* toy Mr. Field) to adopt, Inttesd of tbe report fa for* them, a propoaltloa referring tbe whole au jeet to a National Convention whenever tl raqulalto number of State Legislatures may see to call one Neither of these can prevail; aa the friends com prom lae now, have a clear majority la tl toady, by BUtca, aad aa overwbelmiac one a mi7. m ??* i? i? ??y: u?eir majorities In t irlTg'""-* from the States favoring present act! are overwhelming ; while the majorities of th< opponents In delegatlona voting (as a unit) agaii Btloa, ars very small.

Mr. Curt's. of Iowa, regarded the people of the seceding States as revolutionists and traitors to the General Government, and ur>:ed that the bill should be passed, and if the public property of the United states could not be reclaimed peacea bly, it should by force of arms.

As the demand was made In conformity to the armistice, which Is understood on both sides, It was regarded as right, and the work upon the battery was suspeuded.

It appears, as was then stated, that certain partlea here desired to give Mr. Lincoln a public and partisan reception, and applied to Slarshal Kane for police protection in carrying out that Intention. Col Kane Informed them that he believed the President elect, if no partisan ovation was attempted, would be received respect fully and properly by the citizens of Baltimore, but in the presence of such a demonstration r.a they proposed be doubted whether it would be possible to restrain public excitement and to pre vent the occurrence of acta that mlghtbe Insulting to Mr. Lincoln and derogatory to the character ol our city. The intention to have a public parade was persisted in, and Col Kane Informed Mr Lincoln's friends in Washington of the facta ol the esse and of his own apprehensions, and upon the information so given the change in the pro gramme wai made and tUe President elect pa?fd through Baltimore In tbe manner that baa orca atoned bo much excitement and remark.
