? ?? THE EVEIVIING STARWASHINGTON CITY: ATIRDAV." >l*rch 16. 1*61. ' P ? Spirit *f tk? W?r?lu Frees. The InttUig?nt*r thinks the border slave State* would be of more advantage In their present position to the Southern Confederacy aa a wall of defence against Northern aggreaaloa, than if they were to become members of It, with all their frontier exposed to fanatical hatred and pillage. The R'publiean tars: ?' It is not the Crittenden platform, or the Peace Conference platform, which Vlrginiana, inclined to secession, really care about. They would require no new platform if tbev had tne company in the Union of tha Gulf States, and without that company no platform will reconcile them to the Union. Ar.d it is not by giving them new guar, anteee, but by showing them that Virginia can xitt without cotton 9t?tes. that they may be Induced to give up the heresy of secession." Owjfixo Up.?The Richmond Kianiiiir. whose editor posies**! the virtue of lngenuousneas In a degree that put* to shame the dlstogenuousnesa of nine-tenths of the rest of the Virginia disunion pre**, does not hesitate to follow South Carolina's example In declaring tbat neither infraction* of the fugitive alave law, denial of Southern right* in U S. Territories, nor the election of Lincoln, Mm the cavte of the current oligarchic usurpation at the South; proclaiming that it grew out of the dissimilarity in a thousand ways of the two races of whites inhabiting the North and South, respectively. Of course, the Examintr can see nothing admirable In the northern race, nor anything in the southern rare that is not admirable. Nor can It see anything wrong In the utter destruction of auch a government as that of the United States, the conceded author of more blessings than any other government ever secured for a pt-opie, only In order that tbc leiiuguaace which such thinkers at the South as itself enter tains towards ILe North, may be gratified. We are glad Indeed I bat the Virginia D'.sunlonlsts are being gradually compelled to show thetr hand to the noonle of thi>tr State thus onenlv. Aa signally beaten not long since at tbe polls as they were, when profeaaing to advocate dlaunion only as the means of making the Union immanent, now that they are coming to avow that their aim ia to get Virginia out of the Union forever, and that they so aim because they individually hate the North rather than on account of northern aggreasion, they will surely be defeated In th? State's Congressional elections soon to come off, aa a party were never before beaten there. More tha 1 half those who voted for Disunion members of the Virginia Convention did so because honestly believing that the only possible way of getting the Gulf States back Into the Union waa by putting Virginia at the head of the southern movement. Had South Carolina and the Montgomery council of the oligarchy emphatically declared previous to the Virginia Convention election, a* they have since declared, that under no circumstances would they listen to "rernnitrnrtinn'' nrnrvrilttnnfl nnrt Knri th#? Virainfx Disunion press and orators placed themselves in the Examiner's present position Instead of electioneering upon "reconstruction/' not a single secession per st member would have b?en r?turned. Compelled to show their band, as the disunion1st a have been since that election, so that every Virginia voter must now realize that to vote for a secessionist is to vote for permanent disunion for the sake of destroying the Government of the United States, to establish over Virginia In Its stead the made-in-secret Constitution of the oligarchy, deprivation of the liberty of free speech ana me woeriy 01 lae press, augmentation len loia of taxation, exclusion of white labor from the South, 4c., 4c., it is already a fixed fact that not a single disunionlst will be returned to Congress from Virginia in May next. Govibsmext Prutisg Bureac.?The law establishing a Government Printing Bureau went Into effect od the 4th of this month. It is an experiment depending for auccesa upon tbe capability and faithfulness of the Superintendent. Mr. John D Defreea. of Indiana, haa been select?d by the President to diacbarge the important duties of Superintendent. Mr. D. is a printer, having been, succewively, an apprentice, Journeyman, proprietor, Ac., 4c. For nearly two years past Mr. Defrees has been personally well known to the printing craft of the Federal Metropolis through h'.u connection with the Hcuse printing of the last Congress. and in that time he baa fairly won their universal respect and confidence, and warm esteem. He was, by-the-by, the writer of the wt-ll remembered conservative Republican letter published in the Stir shortly after the Presidential election, in which the conservatism of the present administration was first J -? ? ?- * * - J % iviwxiiviku, luu wim great lorce ana ciearn?M A Niw Commissioner of Patihts.?Yesterday afteenoon It was settled in Cabinet council to appoint Mr. Halloway, of Ind., late a member of the Houm of Representatives, to the position of Commissioner of Patents. Mr. Halloway is a man of clear head, excellent judgment, much energy of character, and unapproachable Integrity. He la a mechanic rather than a lawyer, by profession, though through connection with general busine* and public trusts at home and here, be is sufficiently familiar with the nrinclDies nf law/?? hown la the manner in which be discharged the duties of his late position in Congress) to ensble him to make a very successful administration of ths Important trust about to be confided to him.

Sb*ati?When our report cloa?d yesterday, Mr. Douglas wai addressing the Senate on bis resolution relative to the public property in the acceding State*. He did not believe that Congreaa would confer upon the President power to collect the revenues, b lng back forts, Ac The political frienda of the Preaident did not confer tte power on htm to do ao at tbe last session of Congreaa when they had a majority in botu Houses Mr. Fessenden wished to know when, for m Ingle day, duri ng the last session of Congress. the republican* bad a majority. They were la the minority everv day. Mr. Douglas said they had power to para the measure of collecting the revenue between both lde? of the Chamber They passed a law to (top the mails in the seceded State* without any difficulty, and If they had chosen they coula have passed a law to collect the revenue The amendment proposed by the Senator from New Hampshire (Mr. Clark) shows where the tender point is. The holding of Forts Sumter and Pickens, and the recapturing the others cannot be justified unless we Intend to bring back tbe seceded States themselves. Whoever holds Charleston is entitled to Fort Sumter, and whoever holds Florida and Psnsacola is entitled to Fort Pickens. Whoever holds the land Is entitled to the forts in lenaea rnr local aeiense; inose otner torw. fs toose at Key Waat and the Tortugas, arid Fort Jefi'erson, of a national character, should be kept by the United States. But Sumter, and Moultrie, and Castle Plnckney, and Pulaski, &c., are local and for local defense. Mr. Doolittle would like to ask how It Is with the forts at the mouth of the Mississippi ? Mr. Douglas said they did not for in an exception. If we were to allow Louisiana to bold both sides of the river, what use were those forts, tinless we occupy the State, and remove all conflictingr authority? Mr. Clark inquired If he might ask a question. Mr Douglas said he would not be catechized on his side,when the Republican side would answer no questions They could meet In caucus and ai:rre noi 10 uy worn, soa ioen come in and ask question*. Mr. Fetsenden knew nothing about any such caucus Mr Douglas bad beard of such a caucus, and hflltwd tbrrr wna one Mr Fesaenden said there was not a word ol truth in It, from beginning to end Mr. Douglas had heard so from one of theli own number. He wanted to know if the Administration meant peace or war The Republican party. In the acts for the organization of the new Territories, had repudiated their old doctrine ol intervention by Congress He hoped they would continue In the same wise direction. Mr Wilson said the Senator from Illinois wai full of anxieties. Ten days ago this Administration came into power, finding treason In Congress. treason In the" army, treason in the navy, and treason in the country The President of the I'nited States delivered a kind, venial and patriotic Inaugural address to the people. Hardly had th.it address been flashed over the country, before the Senator from Illinois (Mr. Douglas) stepped forward, unasked, to Interpret that address The Senator is not content that the President should stand on his own Interpretation; he is not willing that the President ana Cabinet, who had taken possession of a Government in ruins, should themselves Interpret their own measures and purposes, but he rushes Into the rhamber and he asks to in teroret for them. He struts here before the Senate and talks of what he shall do, and what he shall not permit to be done Mr. Douglas said he would forgive the petnlanr# and r#r?nn?llt<o? " iuc oniaiur. ll wai evidently the nim of the Republican ?ide to avoid argument and resort to personalities. [In the course of these remarks Mr. Douglas, by a slip of the tongue, spoke of the Senator from Maine, meaning the Senator from Massachusetts, (Mr. Wilson,) and continued a few sentencs further, declaring his determination to maintain himself against all opponents, no matter "whence thev came " This gave rise to a misunderstanding lietween Mr Douglas and Mr. Feaaenden, which produced a personal altercation of much asperity, compelling the Chair to call to order.] Mr. Fessenden said the President meant peace, and the Senator from Illinois had no foundation for his attack The object of the .Senator in oft*r fcls resolution was not to obtain Information, but to make a speech. The inaugural bad been declared on the other aide to mean war, for the purpose of drawing them into a discussion, * ut they had no intention to be taunted into a discussion which they did not desire. [Some further remarks of a personal character passed between the two Senators, wnich continued several ^pinutes ] Mr. Douglas said that the Senator (Mr. Fessenden) hud controverted his veracity. Mr. Fessenden?Not at all; I done nothing of the kind Mr Douglas said be had never made a personal assault In the Senate. Mr Hale recognized bis personal share of the censure conveyed by the senator from Illinois against the Republican side for keeping silence. He therefore wished to say a few words; his speech would be brief It could be found written down in the*2d Book of Samuel, 15th chapter, 4th verse, which he would read. [Laughter In the galleries J Mr. Douglas said there was an effort on the other side to make personal points on him But he expected to give them some trouble before they got through. But such was the disorder In the galleries tie would now lit do?rn. On motion of Mr. Wilson, the Senate proceeded to the consideration of executive business; and after remaining therein until near six o'clock, the doors were reopened and the Senate adjourned Saturday, March 10. Sk*atk ?On inotton by Mr. Wilson, the resolution Introduced by Mr. Douglas was postponed till Monday next. Mr. moved to take up his resolution relative to the 1'nited States troops now in this city. Mr. Fts*rnden moved to go into executive session, on which motion Mr. Mason demanded the yeas and nays, resulting yeas 27, nays 10 So the Senate went into executive session, and our report closed.
