Spirit of the Morning Press The Inl'iligtnrrr endeavors to shew the similarity existing between the Constitution of the United states and that of the J*outhern Confederacy. The editor of the Republican having just returned from New England saya that the people there art- perfectly satisfied with the proposition to evacuate Fort Sumter, believing that the honeaty aud sagacity of the President will by this movement tend to bring about a reunion of our now shattered Government. Oca I*eaxrocs NxioHaoa.?The disingenueusnsas of the Alexandria Sentinel is refreshing Pomehow or other it la Incapable of dsing a straightforward thing; certainly it never ventures a reference to the Star that falls to Involve gross and palpable misrepresentation. How much it made by that policy towards the Unionists in the eanvaas for the election of the Virginia Convention, is apparent In the two thousand six hundred majority the Alexandria Congressional district gave against secession. Then, as now, It sought to brand all Union men as abolition submissionIstt The extent of the confidence lu Its representations entertained by those among whom it circulates, Is fslrly measurable by that majority fflv?n htr (K?t A #as (Ka KAlllU?.?nkn.iaaU.

By way of showing the reader whet it regards as aholltlonlsnn wa quote ft? on Fridaylast upon the Scar's editorial of the day before, descriptive of the existing condition of F.-Irfax county, and compar.ng that with its condition years ago; as follows: " The VVashington Star signalizes the leal of a new pervert, by the most outrageous and abusive misrepresentations of the Southern States, that we meet with In our exchanges Yesterday it had an abolition editorial in reference to Virginia.?today it represents Texas : s about to en?age in revolution against secession,?so dissatisfied are the people We have not thought it worth while to notice the course of the Star.?it Is published for another market than Virginia But the Texas atorv Is so utterly repudiatrd by Dr. Carter's testimony in his speech here last nleht. that we were tempted to call attention to the fact." We know no better mcde of illustrating the Injustice it does ns in denying the truth of what we say of the existing state of things In the seceded States and elsewhere where aecsion is rampant, and also of showing that its dodge of accusing all but traitors to their country of being abolitionists, has not even the poor merit of being original, than by publishing the following extract from a letter received bv* a gentleman In this ci'y fr m i frl??nH in P UKr?/vnJ ?_ _ ___ W .? . VMM AM ? IVUMJVilU Rich*ojid, Va , March 15,1861. How do yon stand upon the secession question' Have you been led astray by the singular delusion that tLe honor of the South requires that this glorious Union, which we have all. till within a very recent period, prided ourselves so much about, should be split asunder, and the South should go one way and the North another' Have you been hoodwinked by that demagogical tribr, heretofore riding the South li?e the Old Man of the Sea, Into the belief that because tkey were defeated. It is impossible for the South ever to obtain her just rights again? Are you blind to the fact that It his been the invariable cry of these political lepers that they are the only patriots in the land, and that unless their candidates can always succeed. the country is gone? Have4hey not always (wickedly and atrociously) branded every man pui upa^ainst itifvn.for any ojfitt. a* abolitionist* and unsound?not to be trusted? No, my dear friend, your characteristic moderation in all things interdicts any possible belief than that you re To be c'assed among the crazy fanatics who constitute the bulk of the Disunion party of this and other Southern States. However just might be the cause; however desperate might seem the chances of the South ever to be recognized on the part of the General Government, ye? the character and conduct cf the party in this city, with few exceptions. Is enough to disgust any one with it, and cause Mm to blush for his section. However much the sectssiou leaders and their nf* / ? Dupatckot yesterday andthismornintf) my bowl and writhe over the charge of the Washington Star, that a reign of terror and ruffianism had been inaugurated in Richmond, it is nevertheless every word of it true Baltimore Plug Uglyism could hardly equal the dastardly attempt* prac ticed by the secessionist* here to intimidate the opposite party from speaking in favor of further tffoiU to save tbe Union. Not a maa in tbe Convention, (now in session in this city,) who has spoken in favor cf tbe Union, b;s escaped sowie msuit from the loathing dr.futation from the party who hang invariably around the doors of the Convention to applaud and encounge disunion doctrine, and h:ss and denounce those wboexprcss aiuerem sent.meats. Truly mob law is in the ascendant here. But 1 will cay no more at present. A Called Saseio:* or Cokurxs*.?The beat informed men around us are rapidly coming to regard a special session of Congress as absolutely necessary for the protection of the public interest, and we sball not be surprised to sec the President's proclamation to that end in print ere the close of the present week; It being understood that additional legislation Is found to be absolutely necessary to enable the Government to collect duties on Imports anywhere. If, as alleged, It la not lawful to collect customs off the harbors nf rv???. - 1 ?^ ? M. -vi-vum ouio. (acre c*d dc no doubt that importer! will order most of tbelr good* brought Into the United States through them; knowing well that until Congress legislates upon the subject the Government has not the means of preventing them from being carried from the seceded States wherever they are to be old for actual consumption Under these circumstances a special session of Congress is in evitably unavoidable, we take it for granted. Apropos:?'The Virginia Congressional election takes place on the first Monday in May. Every one of the State's nine representatives who signed the disunion manifesto are nnderstocdto be candidate* for reelection The Richmond Wkig estimates that the aggregate majority against the disunion candidates throughout the State will reach 75,OW). We apprehend that every one of lh? nin?n1l1 I 1?1 >- J ? " _ -wwM.m w* iu|tvuvu?y uneaiea, and men elected in Their stead true lo their L*arta to tbe Integrity of tbe Union. If there be no collision between the General Government and the seceded States ere the first M( nday In May, Virginia will return no dlsunlonUt to CoDgresa The only possibility that a collision may occur, lies lu the determination of the us.rplng oligarchy to brliig one about, If they can do so. Tbe eminent forbearance, prudence and patriotism marking the policy of the frorernmeut upon the subject, however, are now becoming so thoroughly apprecla tea turo'Jtgbout the border States, as that If the oliga rcby succeed In bringing on a collision, the I rause of secession will jjaln little, indeed, by the Achievement, however flagrantly the facta in olrtd In it may be distorted and misrepresented for tflrct at the poll* The game of the secessionists up to this time has bsen so signally but a game of false pretenses, aa that it can no longer b? played anywhere with sucoeas How to Do It ?The disanionista do not yet ucvpwir us |?Cbiiu? lur LMjrur r 8t&t S out Of thf Union; and being unsuccessful in getting up a war with the General Goverament, they are turning their attention to the plan of getting up war In the border States That is they propose to revolutionize the latter by force of arms' We quote the Washington correspondent of the Charleston Mercury, writing just before the composition of the Cabinet was officially promulged,and when John Bell's nsme was among those canvassed : " It is now tolerably certain that John-Bell, of Tennessee, will get a seat in the Cabinet.

Sesate ?When our report closed on Saturday the Senate had gone into executive teuton After some time spent therein the Senate adjourned Moxday, March IS Senate?Mr Cowan presented to the Senate the r.red?nti?l? of Hon David W llmot. U.S. Sen ator from Pennsylvania. Mr Bright laid before the Senate a copy of a joint resolution adopted by the Legislature of Indiana. petitioning Congress to call a Convention of all the States to take into consideration the propriety of amending the Constitution. Mr. Wilmot having been sworn in and taken his seat. The Senate then took up the resolution offersd by Mr. Douglas; and Mr. Breckinridge proceeded to address the Senate. He bad been a silent spectator of a great drama in ths world's history. He had been one of a number cf Senators who earnestly strove to bring about the adoption by Congress of some measures which would allay the storm now raging. H? regarded the inaugural as being generally expressive of peace, but If It was carried out to Its strict letter, bloodshed would inevitably entae. The leading Idea of the Inaugural was that tbe President did not recognise the existence of a new government In the South, and that he Intended to execute tbe laws in all tbe States, ineluding those which had gone out of the Union. That he would hold all the forts and public property by force of arms If required, and would collect tbe revenues as In the past. In a whole, he construed the inaugural to mean that the President was determined to hold rll the property of the United States in those States at all hazard*; aud if Fort Sumter was to be vacated it was not to be done as a measure of peace, but as a policy which a military general would pursue to gain a more important advantage elsewhere. He saw no broad and practical policy among Republicans which could promote peace. The simple question wt?, abould the power of tbe United States be maintained over a separate Government of five millions of peopie with all the machinery of a Government If it was, why hesitate and talk of peace? If not. why were Federal troops still retaining possession of those forts ? I he senate snould have advist-d. by resolution, tbe President of the United States to withdraw the forces from tbe South and to have sought by negotiation aione the preservation of the Government. u<> ah null! trnto tV?o sosnl *? #1 ah I W-.

With regard t<> tiie revenue he had but little to say. That question had blready been settled, and the remarks of the Senator from Illinois (Mr. Douglas) was a g?od exponent of his sentiments upon that subject Mr. Breckinridge was speaking when our report necessarily closed Ajtother Great Achikvrmknt of th* Oligarchy !?TheTr-asury Department have advices that the light house supply vessel haa been seized In Galveston harbor by the Texas disnnionists Thla vesael is employed In supplying the different light-houses with oil, wicks and other stores Who ever planned her seizure must have been fired with zeal to emulate the great achievement of Twiggs. Unmitigated rascality Is evidently infectious in Texas, just now. The United States li^ht-bouse-establisbment vessel Guthrie sailed from New Hedford, Mass., Nov. 8, 1HH), with a full cargo of supplies for one year for all the light houses and light vessels between Amelia Island, Ga , and the Rio Grande, Texas The master in charge of this vessel reached the bay at Galveston, Texas, cn the oth of March, instant, for the purpose of delivering the year's supply of oil, Sec., to the Bolivar Point and other light-houses in that vicinity. While he was ab. sent from the vessel, attending to the delivery of the supplies, the Guthrie was boarded by a man calling himself Capt Rogers, with several men, and accompanied by an individual calling himself Gen. Sherman, claming to act by authority and under the orders of " the Committee of Safety at Galveston." These men got the vessel under way and proceeded with her near the cutter, where she was at last accounts detained to await further order? from Anstin, Texas. The Guthrie. It will be seen, was on a mission of peace, mercy, humanity and charity. Filied with supplies of all, &c., purchased and paid for by the United states, to be distributed to tbe lights on the southern coast, to prevent their extinction during the ensuing year, and without which supplies they must at an early period be extinguished, and thereby cause great loss of life and property In the navigation of that coast.
