THE EVENING STARWASHINGTON CITY: THURSDAY Awtk 21^, 1*61. Spirit sf the n?r?l?| Pre.s The Imf'lltgttrtT argues that Mr. Lincoln has no more power than had President Jackson oeforo the passage of the " Force Act," and that he has no power or authority to collect the revenue In the seceded i4tales otherwise than by law and urges that Congress should not supply this defect by additional legislation as Is anticipated. The Htpvblteam argues that the seceding States have forfeited all claim to the public domain of the L"oiled States. _ Litis To-moi&cw Night ?We are requested to announce that there will b? a public reception at the Executive mansion to-morrow even tag, be. tween the hours of 6 and 10 o'eiock. Th? Most Daxsskous ?nk kiss of the main?anan?a .l.^atf Isa VlaivUU A I. ?cti?uv.e vi ?ia*ciT in ? n^iuia, ait uci wwh ui?* nnlon pre* and orator*. If they succeed In either coaxing or bullying the people of the State Into giving op their liberties enjoyed under the Constitution of the United states, and in lieu thereof beading their necks to the yoke of the oligarchy's despotism, they aurely bring the Canada line down to Pennsylvania's southern border, so far as future security for Virginia slave property is coneerned. They Induce Virginia to relinquish the existing constitutional guarantee for the return of fugitive slaves; releasing Pennsylvania voluntarily and wholly from Its obligation upon her. They make almost every man in Pennsylvania the bitter and active enemy of slavery, becauae by the secession of Virginia nominally for slavery's beneht, ttev will have increased ten fold the business difficulties and financial troubles which Pennsylwant a h aa a 1 ruar^ \r ImMirpA/t thrnnvK . ? 4 nn ,But. M ? ... V?v. j ? *.-? VU^II ?uv WVCBWiUil of the Oolf States Thus, they not only reader It certain tbat every runaway who manages to reach Pennsylvania will be lost to bis owner, past the possibility of reclamation, but they raise up in Pennsylvania a hundred active workers in the business of negro stealing, where there is one now. The consequence cannot fail to be the successful escape of fifty Virginia runaways where one successfully capes now. Who fails to realize this self-evident fact * From the moment Virginia secedes, this trouble will Increase at such a rapid rate, aa that in a ingle year those in Virginia who have slaves exposed to be thus lost, will either move further Houth with them, abandoning their Virginia estates. or (if the latter be worth more to them than their negroes) th?y will hurry the latter into the market; selling them South very generally for whit thev rnav be abl#. to opt fr>r ih?m , , ?"?" "? damaging effect?to prices?of the glut thus brought about While the tt ceded States will reap the advantage of getting Virginia's negroes Ither by emigration, or by purchase at very low prices, Virginia will surely be paralized beyond expression for the time being, by the immense losa of productive labor she will so suddenly sustain. Her soil, climate and other advantages are, however, too great to admit the idea that northern and foreign labor will not rush in bv thousands to supply the vacuum. In less than three years from the day that Virginia's disunion press and orators may carry the State under the oligarchy's despotism, the new comers will have so strengthened the opposition to that government, as that they will vote Virginia back into the Union by a majority of t#o, three, or four to one; and will, doubtless, (the State then being well nigh entirely clear of slaves,) aboliah the Institution from tbe State, by a change of tbe Constitution. This reasoning is so plain as that any man of reflection will realize tbat so far as tbe effect of secession upon tbe future of slavery in Virginia la concerned, It is destined to be just as we describe It above. The Lion Lxtti*.?South Carolina newspa pen dispute tbe authenticity of tbe letter from Jndga Robert Lyon originally publiabed in the Waco (Texas) Gax*ttt, descriptive of the beauties and advantages of disunion u experienced by tbe people of South Carolina, and subsequently copied Into the Star. The Soath Carolina disunion papers deny the existence of any such person as Robert Lvon in or about m..a # ? ? ? W ! *% J UIIU give fist contradiction to the letter s statements generally. Nevertheless. we see nothing in what they say on the subject to induce a serious doubt of the authenticity of the letter, or that it was written by a Mr. if not a judge Robert Lyon; for everybody ia dubbed, in Texas, either judge, captain, colonel, general, governor, or something of the sort. The fact that in its comments upon the letter's statements the Abbeville paper undertakes to represent business of all sorts as being more flourishing in South Carolina than ever before, moneymore plenty in everybody's hands, the bends of the State hard to be bad at par, everybody satisfled with the new order of things, Slc? ice., all of which every one knows is utterly untrue, induces us to place little confidence, indeed, in the truth of ita denial in the premises.

Sunday night she was not so fortunate Passing along the neighborhood Indicated In the commencement of this paragraph, the rude hand of a slightually tlpsey youth was placed upon her shoulder, accompanied by the remark: "Say, Jenney, what ver do ." The balance of the remark was lost in the passing wind, and the astonished youth, from a perpendicular quickly assumed a horizontal attitude, a huge mastiff tugging away ? a certain portion of his troWfers, in dangerous proximity to his tender person Sobered in a moment, and fully realizing bis dangerous position, be began to cry lustily for help, and his piteous calls soon collected quite a number of people.

Baltimore Cliyj'tr. The Western Peach Cjior.?From the accounts that reach ns In our exchanges we ar?* Inclined to believe that the peach tr?-es in the West have been seriously Injured The Rufftlo Republic nays: On Cayuga Island, in the Niagara river, from where we of Buffalo receive the fruit and largest quantity of peaches, the crop will be nothing. Mr. Burdett. one of the largest growers, says his orchard will not yield a quarW-r of a crop; and Mr. Clark, who has examined several hundred buds says he finds scarcely any that are I not destroyed. Such is probably the ens-* in most of the orcn-trda above tee mountain ridge. We are not Informed as to the prospect between the mountain ridee and Like Ontaria. but the editor of tbe Rural New Yorker says he has continued observations in regard to the condition of the peach buds, and finds them Injured in Western New York more than at first disposed to believe There rnav be a few saved near the lake shore, or in close proximity to iom<> cf our inland lakes, and in a few favored localities, the crop is gone CjT a dispatch from Mr. Memminger, Secretary of the Treasury of tbe Confederate States published in the Charleston papers, officially confirms the fact that tbe new tariff wn not passed by the Montgomery Congress before adjournment.
