4 THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON CITY: wviiHantv Martk 20. 1961. r a>vi^a?arv.-i ? Spirit ?f lb# >l?rntng Pre?s The ImttUigtnrt' denounce the action of the Southern Congress in refuting to submit their new Constitution to the people directly through a convention called for that purpose, and argues that this refusal will cause Jealousy to arise in the minds of many of the people, who will finally, If not now. repudiate the measures The R'j>*blican disproves from the record the allegation that Senators Hale, Seward and Chase oted for the petition sent from Pennsylvania in 1(^50, praying that 'some plan might be devised for the dissolution of the American Union " Til PlACB CoMriKKMrK's Sbttlkxint, ke.? It affords us pleasure to reply to the questions pnt to the Star yesterday, by the Alexandria Stnttmtl. Thus, we have to say that the Peace Conference did come to a settlement of the slavery questions which Jp destined to enable the border States to bring back the seceded States, as sure as the sun will rise to-morrow. It adopted the Franklin proposition with the votes of Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois and Indiana endorsing It. Though because under instructions not to vote ** an?r Anal nlan a# SAltlomuot tsr) t Kaii f nra. vlously consulting their Legislature, the Indiana delegation, not having time to to do, declined to vote formally on the only clause of the Franklin plan really contested, a majority of Its members were known to be In favor of its adoption. The vote of New York upon it was equally divided. Thus adopted by the Peace Congress, its settlement did embrace a satisfactory guarantee that whenever the subject comes before the people of the North, as It must come not long hence, they will sanction the Franklin plan according to the lorms of the Constitution; which, assuring the ttatrna of the border States in the Union, will, as a consequence, eventually bring back the seceded States, now that it Is certain that the oligarchy will not be able to get up the war with the Government they ha^e so pertinaciously sought, and also that every distinctive American right or liberty has already been abrogated and public expenditures (taxation) has been Increased tenfold whsrever its usurpation holds sway. Further: The unanimity with which the Republican party in Congress were willing to grant all requested legislation with reference to the future observance of the fugitive slave law, amounted to a guarantee satisfactory to the southern friends of the Union, that that source of sectional irritation will be removed as fast as the forms of legislation in the several northern States will ad nui; ana me adoption, by the constitutional ma- I jorlty, of the Corwin proposition, guaranteeing the Immunity of slavery in the States forever from attempts at Congressional interference or regulation, kmt bad tbe effect of satisfying the border slaveholdlng States that their slavery rights and Interests are safer now under the government of the United States, than before the oligarchy usurped the government of the scceded ?taUs; one great cause of its former insecurity, the | erpetual agitation of their chronic demagogues in Congress (nominally for its benefit, but really to keep themselves In public life) being In a great measure removed by their withdrawal from the National councils. The Star does not, as explained above, regard tha whole thiug?the action of the Peace Conference and the subseqnent action of Congress on the subject?"a wretched failure." The Star was never fledged to secession in any event; having been flrsfc of the prvss of the South to take emphatic ground in favor of the Union in any event It tbougLt could possibly happen under existing circumstances, and bavinir. since, stead lljr maintained that position. The Star baa neither recognized the alleged right of secession, or at any time declared the election of Lincoln to the Presidency just cause for the destruction of the Union and the establishment of the naked and atrocioua despotism that exists farther South, over the people of the sUveboiding States. It adheres to the position of Mr. Hunter In bis Charlottesville speech, that the success of the Republlcana in a fairly conducted presidential election was mo Juat cans* for disunion . The Star, further, sees nothing in the conduct or policy of the present Administration aggressive on southern rights, and it is sure from its knowledge of the circumstances In which It (the Administration) is placed, that Instead of aggressing the South in any particular, It cannot possibly fail to be more scrupulously careful to do no such thing, than any other national Administration has been; as the solution of the question of the continuance of the Border States In the L'nion, hinges upon Its success In satisfying them that the withdrawal of the States now under the despotism of the oligarchy, baa mot weakened the security of their Institution In the Union The Star therefore decline* to pander to the schemes of the disunioniits by getting up false accusations against the Administration, In order to weaken the confidence of the Border states in the belief that they will be as fairly and as justly dealt by hereafter, by the Government, as ever before The Star proposes to try the present Government by Its conduct ?not upon the false testimony adduced against it by disunion newspapers and orators, resorting to its misrepresentation to stimulate the border States to place their necks under the yoke of the oligarchy's despotism. If that determination makes the Star a Republican-party paper, as the Stntmtl Intimates, the fourth Monday in May will demonstrate that Uuaa ?? ? ? iquiH oaiuc nepuDiican party? the Unionists?are In a majority of from 50,000 to 100,000 In Virginia. Tba Star, provoked to retaliation by tbe Into, lent blackguardism and abuse showered upon very active Unionist In Virginia by sympathizers with tbe despotism of the oligarchial*, regards It ss being high time to speak of their purposes and conduct in language that shows its emphatic condemnation of them, and may do much In the patriotic labor of opening the eyes of the people of the border States, to the atrocity of their plans. The St*r utterly denies that the real Statesrights public men of Virginia are engaged in the disunion movement. They are simply the men who are seeking to steal " the livery of Heaven to serve the devil in"?cloaking their designs against their country, under the mantle cf States-rights In conclusion, we have to assure our ingenuous neighbor of the Stntmtl, that its insinuation that the Star's course in behalf of the Union is dictated by a desire to obtain patronage from the present Administration, has neither truth nor Justice for its bssis. The Star has never received a dollar from the National Treasury by way of patronage. The Government advertisements are published in the Star, only because the law r*quir*$ their publication In it Tbe Sentimtl made the same insinuation when to do so Involved an aspersion la that connection upon the integrity of the last Administration, it will be remembered. The present Administration has not In 1U gift a duola " a - ui ininiuK' mi ? can Deetow on any Washington journal, except the " Executive designation" directing one paper to publlah tbe Covernmeut advertisements, wblch the Siar publishes under tbe law, in virtue of the extent of ita circulation. Tbe troth la, the Stniimtl measures oar conscience by Its own in this matter, we apprehend. Under the last and previous Administration It was the most notorious mouser around tbe departments here to pick up advertising crumbs, and, as la well knoWn to ita readers, succeeded In appropriating all the tlt-b^, to the almost entire exclusion of tbe rest of t^r Democratic journals of its Congressional district, to their disgust and disaatlefaction Pretty fellow?the Staiimii?with Its own patroaaga record, to assail the St*r on that bend, thai has never received a dollar of tiovernment patronage, aad cdaaot poeaibly secure any If It weald, hermtrr the Government has none that It eaa beetow ?a It 117" From Shilling toe, Odeoo Building, we kan Godey'a Lady'a Book for April, freeb end inviting ae uaoal. 117" Blebop Vlibera, (ot Scotland, we twit eve,) rebate to ordnla arhoolmaaxra to the prietttood e S**at*.?When onr report closed yesterday. Mr. Cb&ndler was addressing the Senate. At the conclusion of his speech? Mr SI motions moved to strike out all the resolution of the Senator from Illinois (Mr Douglas) after the word " Resolved,' and substitute the following, so that it shall read : Ke?ple*rf, That the Committee en the Judiciary be instructed to make the following inquiries: 1st If any 5tate or States within the limits of the " United States of America" have changed or modified their laws respecting the oath required to be taken by the members of the Legislature thereof, to such an extent as to disqualify its members as electors of s Senator of tbe United States according to the provisions of the Constitution 2d. If sny Senator now claiming to b*i member of tbe Senate baa been elected by tbe Legislature of any State the members whereof were thus disqualified. ? ? k * I _ ,ta. r\ nai vacancies (ir any) mere ?re in me Senate which the Executive of any State haa a sonstitutlonal right to make " temporary appointments" to fill; and that aald committee report the results of their hiqulries to the Senate. Mr. Simmons said he thought It proper to know what State* had undertaken to act thus regardless of the Constitution in a point which Its founders thought to be one of much Importance. He believed that when noiay politicians had got through with their conventions, there would be a tendency to return to quiet and rslmnens all over the country. He thought that ail the States would eventually come back into the Union, and peace and harmony again prevail. After aome further debate, the Senate went into Executive session, and after some time spent therein adjourned. Wedhksday, March 20. Sbnats.?Mr. Hale introduced the following, whirh wm lair! nvpr nnrlpr th*? rnlpa Resolrtd, That the Senate adjourn without day on Saturday, the 24th inst., at 1 o'clock p. m. The Senate then took up the Douglas resolution. Mr. Bayard said that a spirit of hostility bad been engendered between the Northeast and the extreme South to such an extent that it wes not only impossible to preserve the Union, but impracticable to reconstruct It. The Federal Government was brought down to choose between two questions alone. It must either make war upon the South at once, or else remove the Federal troops and recognii? the Independence as a nation of the seceding States His principles were embodied in a resolution (which he read) authorizing the President to treat wiid ana recognize tbe nationality of tbe Southern Confederacy. Mr. Bayard was speaking when our report closed. Vk*t Important Nominations.?Just before we went to press this afternoon, President Lincoln made the following nominations to tbe Senate. Viz: Thomas J. Dryer, of Oregon, to b? Commissioner to the Sandwich Islands. Rufus King, of Wisconsin, te be Minister Resident at Rome. Henry Sanford, of Conn., Minister Resident In Belgium. Anson Burllngame, of Mass, Minister Plenipotentiary, &.c., to Austria. Bradford R. Wood, of N. Y., Minister Resident to Denmark. James O. Putnam, of N. Y., Consul at Havre. It was expected this forenoon that the nominations of Mr. Dcfrecs as Superintendent of the Public Printing, Mr Ilalloway as Commissioner **- ti ? " vi i skuu, auu nir. i aayer os ^oniui oeneral in Kgypt, would probably all be confirmed to-day. The District ArroiXTMKNTs.?The President, a day or two since. remarked to a committee of citizens of Washington who called on him relative to the appointment of a gentleman to an rtfice here, that he should not fill the District appointments for some time to come, as he desired first to satisfy himself as to what selections for those places would prove most satisfactory to this community. His determination to take time in the matter is worthy of all praise, involving as it does proof of his disposition to consult the views of the people of the District in making his selections A Contest.?It is understood that an animsted contest for the position of Chief Clerk of the Sixth Auditor's Office Is in progress here, between Mr. J. F Sharretts, and Mr. F. J. Heybolt. The I former was some years since at the head of a dl vn.on of the clerical force of the bureau, wu removed on account of hit politic*, and ha* M nee been the publisher of the Baltimore Patriot. The latter waa alao a principal clerk of the same bureau, and waa removed a year or two ago on account of hla politic*. Both are well qualified for the position. Thi EvactaTioN of Bcmtzk ?Nearly all In Washington connected with the distant preaa are satisfied that Maj Anderson evacuates Sumter tottay. We feel sure, however, that no positive order for him todoaoto-diy, has been dlrectul by the President to be iaaued. Nevertheless, so possitive are those who expect such action on his part to-day, that we shall by no mean* be surprised to bear to-morrow that be has done so; and with the approval by the Government of whatever the necessities of his situation may require him to do. Col FaiMosr.?It Is understood here, that Col. Fremont ha* not, at any time, been an applicant tor a diplomatic or any other position under the present Administration. Hisnime has, therefore, been entertained for the French mission only through the President's desire to secure his services in the position, we apprehend. Arkansas and thk Ubion ?The Memphis Bulletin publishes the following, styling it a "reliable letter from Little Rock Littlb Rock, March 11.?The Convention has been In session here now one whole week, and nothing material hu been done. Various resolutions have been ottered and referred to appropriate committees, looking to an endorsement, on the one hand, of the doctrine of secession and the right and duly of Arkansas to secede, and on the other to a clear definition of the position Arkansas should take, stopping short of secession with a view to the security of her rights In the Union. One thing Is certain and fixed: Arkansas will not change her relations to the Federal Government so long as things remain In statu quo. and thrrn is Qope or obtaining the guarantees demanded by the south. We have a majority of six?forty members in all?good and true, firm and staunch, perfectly undersandtng each other, and acting in concert; and If Arkansas should be forced to secede, they Intend that the politicians, who have their own selfish alma in view, shall not thereafter control her destiny. Never fear that Arkansas will desert her boraer sisters. She will stand by tbem to the end. Do not believe any report to the contrary. The bulletin of the 17th has the following later intelligence upon the subject: We learn from a reliable source at Little Rock that "the ordinance of secession will be voted down by thirty-nine to thirty-live." A conditional ordinance of secession is being debated, with a clause referring it back to the people for ratification or r?-J?ctlon; but our correspondent adds that "even that cannot pass " It seems to be understood that the Convention will pais resolutions approving the propositions of Missouri and Virginia for a Conference of the Border Slave States, and provide for sending five delegates to said Conference or Convention, and agree with Virginia, to hold said Conference at Frankfort, Ky , on the ^th of May. The Convention, having taken this action, will probably adjourn early this week?perhaps over to some dav next 1 I i4ii, uojecl to be called together sooner by the President Our correspondent adds: "One thing la very certain?Arkanaaa la not going now to aecede, and you way confidently deny any statement or rumor to the contrary. A majority will vote againat any sort 0/ ncmiom ordinance." R ktuk.i of Fcqitivss ?Four negro men made their appearance under tha walls or Fort Plckena on Mohday last and were arrested by Lieut. Hlemmer, and by him aent to this city yesterday on the Wyandotte and placed in the custody of the county Jailor. This was a clever act on the part of the Lieut and for which he will receive due credit.

Detroit, Chicago and Portland have been constituted exchange offices for the French aa well aa British malls, to be conveyed yla Portland and Liverpool, or River Du Loup and Liverpool, to take effect on the 1st of April. Western postmasters will accordingly send letters for France to the post offices of the cities first above mentioned, Instead of New York. \V. H. Russell, President of the Central Overland California and Pikes Peak Express Company. and founder of the Pony Express, has concluded a contract with the Overland Mail Company, transferred by the last Congress to the Central route, to run the mall and Pony Express from the Missouri river, connecting with the Overland Company at Salt Like City. The accounts with the Census Marshals In the "Confederate States" have not yet b?en settled, as the latter withheld the public money from which the Government desires to make tie payment. The State Department It about transmitting to the several States a ratification of the passage, by Congress, of the followiug proposed amendment to the Constitution, which hall become valid when ratified by three-fourths of the Legislatures, viz: " No amendment shall be made to this Constitution which will authorize or give to Congress the power to abolish or Interfere within any State with the domestic Institutions thereof. Including that of persons held to labor or service by the laws of said State." The Commissioners of the Southern Confederacy expect no answer to their official communlcaI tion for ten or twelve days They feel confident that, meanwhile, there will be no collision or | change of the military status In the seceded States. They have telegraphic from Montgomery that ample arrangements have been mnde to avoid all trouble for the present at Fort Pickens It is ascertained from a reliable source that Fort Sumter Is to be evacuated to-morrow. The order has already gone forward Governor Roman arrived here last evening, but was so much fatigued that he immediately retired to rest. His first conference with his colleagues took place to-day, and he entirely approved of everything which had been done by Messrs Crawford and Forsyth pricr to his arrival. They have received instruction* from Montgomery to await the pleasure of the President, and do not now anticipate a communication from the State Department for a week or ten days to come The naval movements at New York are known to have had no connection with Sumter.

In the present unsettled condition of affairs, the fleet will, however, he kept in commission, as there is no knowing at what moment they may be wanted. There Is nothing new transpired to-day In relation to the Baltimore offices, except that the Republicans contend that the rumor of yesterday with regard to Air. Turner's selection for the Collectorsblp is unfounded. They profess to be conildent of the appointment of Mr Francis S. Corkran to the Collcctorship, while they- nt the same time admit that Mr Charle* JR. Thorpe has the best chance for the Post Office. The Committer of Baltimore merchants who waited on the President a few days since, to present Mr. Thorpe's strongly signed memorial, received the assurance from him that in making tbe appointments for Baltimore he would endeavor to consult the wishes of the citizens, and In no case would an aj pointmcnt be made ef parties obnoxious to public senti me nt DE>-rkkatf. Assault?A Virginian B'llrn by his am Slave.?The Petersburg Express of the lJHh gives the following rurtirulars of a savage assault made upon .Mr F Mallory Sutherland, of Mulbtrry Inn, Dinwiddle county. Virginia, on Friday last, by one of his own servants : Mr 9 was out on his plantation superintending the clearing of a patrh of new ground, and directed Ned, a robust fellow, to lift a log to a pile of burning brush. The negro replied that he would not Ho It, which Mr. Sutherland interpreted to mean that the negro did not feel able to lift the log, and stooped to do so himself. While stooping. Ned seized a big stick, and striking his master a powtrful blow over tbeback, felled him to me earia. lie men repeated bis blow* until the stick was broken Into many pieces, and Mr. Sutherland lay apparently lifeless. Thinking he bad accomplWhtd bis purpose, be started off, and had proceeded about fifty yard*, when be nw bis master attempt to r'.se Seizing another stick be returned, and striking Mr. S. another severe blow across the face, mashed bis nos? flat to the face, and then continued to beat him across the arms, tireast, and legs, until the flesh was pummelled to the consistency of jelly. Some small negroes were present when the heating conr-menred, but they were mere children, and dreaded the ferocity of Ned as though be had been a tiger, and were therefore prevented from offering assistance. As soon as tney could get to the house the Intelligence was communicated to seme of the neighbors, and all turned out rm waste to hunt up the fiend, some three or four going to the assistance of Mr. Sutherland, and conveying him to bis residence. Upon reaching the bouse he manifested Indications of returning consciousness, and at last accounts, Sunday, was alive, though in a very precarious condition. The search of the neighbors far Ned proved unavailing, but theaccount of the outrage reached this city, and on Sunday night Mr Geo Alsop, who knew the scoundrel, succeeded in arresting biinatthe depot of the South Side Railroad in this city, and lodged him in jail. He will be transferred to the county of Dinwiddle for trial. Rkscmptiox or Specie Patmksts ? It wr.s stated yesterday that the banks in Philadelphia had fully resumed the payment of specie The suspension, however, was merely nominal, and the formal resumption nowattracts little attention.

The step has been anticipated for some time, in view of the large amount of gold flowing into the country, both from California and Europe, and it will probably be speedily followed by a resumption by all the banka of the State The banks and sub-treasurers of New York, Philadelphia and Boston now hold the enormous amount of 965.000,000 in coin, of which 840.000,000 is held in New York; and the current of coin from Europe, now amounting to about f20.000,o<i0 since the middle of December last, U likely to continue for some time to come. Tiik Faxixk im Mississippi.?The Vlcksburg Whig says: "We have seen a letter from Mr. B Hawkins to Wm.C.Smedes, 1'resldent of the Southern Railroad Company, Peoria.
