The verdict of the ladies, who. of course, critically scanned her, as Is the wont of their sex, waa that " she will do" for the White House.

In the course of the evening, Hon John Bell, of Tennessee, by request of Mr. Lincoln, had an in terview with him, which was of some length. "DIXIE"' FOR THI BKNKF1TOP YOUN? MISCOLN.

Polic* Ditictivis, 4c.?The usual arrange ments relative to the peace of the city upon the eve of all great national events, which cause tn influx of strangers at the Metropolis, have been made. The city police has been divided so as to assign a portion for service as detectives, who, for the occasion, lay aside the uniform and appear in the guise of citizens. A number of detectives from the cities of New York, Philadelphia, and Baltimore have also been directed to cooperate with those of Washington.
