The hu>Uif*c*T argue* that the taxes and tariff of the (reeding Statue have opened the eyes of the people to what they must expect In supporting their new Government, ana that a spirit of dissatisfaction haa already been engendered among the people with regard to the ability and pest course Of their leaders The Rtpublican says of the resolution offered by Mr. Focter: "The expulsion of poor Wlgfell at this late day, because he la lesa cautious In bis language tban other Senators who bold to tLe same doe trine, aud who are much more dangerous, would seem like flying at rather small game; and as be is greatly amusing, and witbal comparatively harmttfA fttst anrv^?ai) (a ft! tHno Kim anv /rramtar ^ V "I <W VIMf, Ul Ml ?MJ V ?v? notoriety, or exalting him Into a martyr." A* L xxxpbctxd Hitch.?The secessionists here have been eagerly expecting the arrival of ex Gov A. B. Roman, of La., the third ao-called Commissioner from the so-cslled Southern Confederacy; threatening war to the knife on the part of the acceded States, to commence very ahortly after hla arrival, when the Government of the United States shall have declined to recognize them In any other capacity than that of distin guisnea citizens of the States la whicb they respectively reside. We fsncy that if they await the appearance of ex-Governor Roman here on any such errand as that devolved en him, they will hardly be gratifled with the opening of their threatened war. The New Orleans True Delta, a staunch Union paper, gives the world to understand that the venerable ex-Governor will come hither In no suche*i aclty He wss a linioa number of the late Lou siana Convention, and though signing the ordinance of secession, Is believed, sioce, to have heartily repented of that act of Indiscretion. Not So?Some of the newspapers are stating that Mr. W. W. Lester, one of the most efficient and respected clerks of the Interior Department, (salary 51,900 per annum,) and the compiler of the best work on the land laws, regulations and decisions of this Government, has been removed. This is untrue. When a body of blatherskltlng secessionists in clerical positions under the Government here signed and published a paper announcing their intention to resign on the advent of the new a J ? a ???* * - ? ? ,<\auiiBia:rai;oit, .Mr. L.. very properly refused to append his name to It; that not being bis way of doing such things. He, however, resigned his appointment in the Interior Department on the 4th inst., before the Inetallation of the new Secretary into office Oat of that fact the story of his removal was, doubtlets, manufactured. Tktilow Wked, En ?Thia distinguished gentleman, after rbrief trip North, has returned to Washington It Iscurrently said that his present visit was undertaken in compliance with an intimation from President Lincoln of bis desire for Mr. W.'s advice in some affairs of importance. El*leaving Washington a few dayssince. learning of bis intended departure, some two or three hundred of his friends called on him at his rooms, at Wlllards', where he held a thronged, though unexpected, levee, for hours. a v ? ....... >u* TBI ri.HT?TlllT We understand that the physician to the U. 9. Penitentiary (Dr. Garnett, the son-in-law of the Hon. A. Wise, of Va ,) having resigned, the place has been filled by the appointment of Dr. Webster Lindaley, of this city. Dr. L. Is well qualified to succeed his predecessor, who is a physician of high standing in this community. The scniist?xdiscv or thk Pcslic Peistimo.?The contest for this position, In the discharge of the duties of which the craft, in this community, are of course much interested, la being narrowed down between Mr. Defrees, ot Indiana, and Mr. Barret, of the Cincinnati (O ) Gauttti The former la a practical printer. No jiosmhatioss were sent to the Srnate yesterday, and as they do not sit to-day, the thousand or two gentlemen now here from a distance, as well as those indigenoua to Washington, who are en the anxious benches with reference to offices Involving the President's personal action, are more nervous than can well be imagined. Keep ?ool, gentlemen; keep cool. Thi Ho*. Amos Trc*, or N. H ?The story that this gentleman will probably be called to the position of Assistant Secretary of the Treasury Is unfounded. Ws have ascertained that he will accept no office hers. Hia friends are urging him for the post of Naval Officer at Boston; worth about 97,000 per annum. AaaivsD ? Mr Kasaon, of Iowa, the newlyappointed First Assistant Poatmaster General, arrived here to-day. He only awaits the arrival of bis commission (from the Executive Mansion) to emter on the discharge of hla duties. He can, however, hardly begin the chopping and hewing with the postal axe official, usual on the advent of new Administration, until Monday next. Left thus Cards.? We hear that Messrs Crawford, of Georgia, and Forsrth, of Alabama, who propose to ask to be received by this Gov. ernment as quasi ministers from the so-called Southern Confederacy, called yesterday and left their carda for President Lincoln and Secretary Seward.

So denae waa the preaaure that handreda. after Herculean efforts to worm their way through the throng, gave Itnp la Jeapair, and went home without seeing the new President. Captain Goddard waa present with hia police, regulating the Insetting carrent as far as possible, but not much could be done where the aaaault waa ao fierce and persistent. It would have facilitated lngreaa and egreaa much If the mode of letting out the crowd through one of the large wlndowa of the East Room, someUmet adopted heretofore, had been followed laat last. Entering the oral (Reception) room, we found Marshal Se'.den at hla uaual poet. Deputy Marahal Phillips was thereabout, alao, and hia tact and energy was being a trained to the utmost In keeping the eager, jostling crowd " in the line of safe precedents," and so on to the Esst Room. Commlaaloner Blake, too, had hia handa full in attending to the preaa of appllcanta for presentstion to Mrs. Lincoln, but perforated the duty with his ususl unruffled politeness. But the downright, serious, hard work of the evening was that performed by President Lin coin, who for more than two hours (?.?. from quarter past eight o'clock till half-past ten) shook hands In right good earnest with all cornors, at the rate of twenty-five per minute, (as timed by a gentleman In bis vicinity,) or one thousand iive hundred per hour. At his left stood Mr. Lamon, of 111., nnderatood to be an asplr&ntfor our District Msrsbalship, and who, mayhap, was looking on to " learn the ropes." At the President's right was Mr. Lincoln's urbane private secretary, Mr. J. 8. Nlcolay. Yet further to the right atood Mrs. Lincoln, and In her vicinity were the ladles of her party, relatives snd others. Mrs. Lincoln seconded her knaKatiil ?? Aaaj! l? ? ? I wvf ?vi j f^wu ^uipmr iu a cordial, smiling welcome to ail corner*, and they both certainly made maiy friends last night among those not heretofore favorably Inclined to them. Oar lady readers will not forgive us If we do not furnlah tome particulars of tbe appearance of the Preaidential party, and for their benefit we may aay that Mr. Lincoln waa dreased in black, with white glovea, turn-down collar, and with hia luxuriant back hair parted down the middle. Mra. Lincoln wore a rich bright crlmaon watered Ilk, with point lace cape, white and red cameliu in her hair, pearl band and necklace, and other ormmenta of pearl. Mra. Kellogg (sister of Mn. Lincoln) wore a chaate aahea-of-roaes brocade silk, with diamond ornaments, and bair tastefully dresaed with white and red camelias. Mra. Edwards (sister of Mrs. Lincoln) wore a brown aatln brocade dreas, with rich crimson flowers and white featbera. . .Miss Edwards (niece of Mrs. Lincoln) waa dreaaed in a fine, embroidered, needle-work robe, with appropriate ornaments, characterized by a implicit)' and elegance becoming her youth. Mrs. Baker (niece of Mr?. Lincoln) wore a tasteful, lemon-colored, watered silk, with point lace trlmmlngi, pearl ornaments, and cherry-colored verbena head-dress. Mrs. Grimsley (cousin to Mrs Lincoln) was dressed in a blue, embroidered silk, with ornaments of turquois, and with white japonicas in her hair. In such a jam, It was impossible to tell who was there, and who wasn't, but amongst the visitors we noticed the following ?Hon Hugh White, of N. Y ; Geo Wise, of V?., (nephew to Henry A. Wise;) Hon. Ale*. Rives, of Va.; Prof. Shele d'Vere, of the University of Virginia; Hon. J. B. Varnum, of New York city; Mr. Baker, editor of the Springfield (111.)

He noticed a gentleman passing him of such towering proportions that he stopped him, saying that he allowed no one taller than Llmself to pass him unchallanged. The tall 'un proved to bea Mr. Hatcher, from Loudon county, Va.,and he looms up to the extent of six feet seven iucbes. At half past ten p. m , Mr. Lincoln passed through the East Room, escorting Mrs. Col. Gates, Mrs Lincoln taking the arm of Hon. Mr. Farnswortb, of 111. Mr. Lincoln, after making the circuit of tbe room, withdrew to his private apartments, but Mrs Lincoln and the company remained for some time longer. The Marine Band was present, furnishing their usual quota of fine music, playing, among other pieces, '-God save our noble President " The last scene of the levee was a tragic one The mob of coats, hats and caps left In tbe ball had somehow got Inextricably mixed up and mis appropriated, and perhape not ona in ten of that largo aaaemblage emerged with the aame outer garmenta they wore on entering.

Now those Southern officers who do not allow latitudinal consideration! to influence tbelr action, begin to complain that the " powers that be" seem disposed to act suspiciously toward them, to deprive them of privilege* and marka of confidence to which tbelr rank and term of service entitle them.
