1 , THE EVENING STAR. m _ K WASHIN OTON OITY: Tt'*SDAY >l?rch 3?, IM1. ? = Spirit oi the Warning Preaa ? Tb? Intelligence, in replying to certain anl? ZMdvera'.oaa in the New York Commercial Advtr. tirtr upon tta p-aat courae with regard toaeceaaton, aava : We propose to deal with facta aa they are, on the bait* of peaceful negotiation, without aiiy , retort to coercive meaaurea, which are admitted on all hands to be no remedy for the wronga Buffered by the loyal Statea The Ktpvblir in urges the necessity of reforming the patronage of the U. r* Senate. Ma. B C. Crook ?The Lynchburg Republican says that Mr Bernard C. Crook, lately appointed mall agent on the Alexandria and Lyncnnurg road, made bis first trip up the road on . fU'urday; that in passing Charlottesville he was waited on by a committee, who informed him tbat ha bad better throw up his commission, charging him with beinga black republican, Ac.; that Mr. Crook conaentea to realgn on hia return to Alexandria; that on reaching Lynchburg on Saturday evening he remained In the mail car all night, not venturing to come out. This la the substance of the information furnished to and published in the Lynchburg Republican. We can only say that Mr. Crook Is a respectable citixen of this place, a worthy mechanic, and an old whig, and never accuaed of being, or suspected of being, a black republican, and la a true Virginian, and every way loyal to his own State.? Alex. Gazfttt. yeti.?The question which the citixens of Charlottesville and Lynchburg will have to determine to their own satisfaction, we apprehend to be aimpiy -whether they will permit Mr. Crook to discharge his lawful duty, or will resign their current I'nlted States mall facilities. The law nni nta Alit hnw tho malla ?V. -* 11 Ka *-* tKam MV? ?UV ? >!? auuti BV? ?v\? ?v ucui If Irresponsible parties be permitted to determine that the mails shall not be so served to them, the 0 Postmaster General has probably no discretion whatever to have them served through agents elected and appointed by any one but himself The issue whether the Post Oihce Department may or may not continue to control U. S. postal affairs in Virginia, will doubtless be promptly met In this case. The only alternative which those who interfere with Agent Crook leaves, under the law, to the Postmaster General, Is, to order all mail matter hereafter directed to Charlottesville and Lynchburg, Va , to be carried, Instead, to the dead letter office In this city, as in the case not v?ry long since of the mails for the Pensacola <Fla.) poet office, interfered with by outside parties. That is, if Mr. Crook is not to be permitted to discharge his lawful duties in connection with those mails. Confirmed.?The following confirmations by the Senate took place vesterdav. Vii iv Gilpin, Governor of the Territory of Colorado; Joshua R U:ddings, Consul to the British American Provinces; Mark H. Dancell, of Me , Consul at Vera Cruz; John Britton.of New York, Consul at Southampton; W. O.

Hlrem Barney was yesterday nominated for the Coilectorehip of the Port of New York; also Richard C. Parsons, of Ohio, Consul at Rio Janeiro, Robert W. SLufeldt, of New York, Consul at Havana, T. Bigelow Lawrence, of Boston. Mass , Consul at Florence. Thb Tkeaty at Fokt Wis*?The treaty not long since made with the Arrapahoes and Cheyennes, at Fort Wise, (Bent's old Fort,) was not the work of Capt A G. Boone, now a^ent there, as we erroneously stated some days since. On the contrary, it was for the most part consummated by Dr Culver, of the Indian Bureau in tLis city, who for six or seven months previous acted as their agent, having been left in charge of thst agency by Commissioner Greenwood, who, it will be remembered, was there last fall, and initiated friendly relaticns with those tribe*. Dr. Culver also laid the foundation for a similar treaty with the Camanchea and Klowss, that will be consummated not long hence, It la to be hoped, for the peace of the frontier. Ma?o* B** MrCrLLoraH,of Texas, who lately engineered to a successful termination, the stupendous scheme of Twiggs, spent Saturday night last In this city, and is understood to have been In and about the neighboring town of Alexandria ever since. His friends here say that the reason ?vby he does not make his appearance in Washington lu the day time, is because, having seized U S property before the usurping Convention of Texas passed their ordinance of secession, he anticipates being arrested by order of the Government, if he should be found within General Scott s reach.

Virginia Convention. Correspondence of The Star. Richmond, March 25?p. m. The battle begins to rage quite fiercely. The Committee of the Whole was this morning on Ihe point of tak'ng the vote on the motion to strike out the report of the majority of the Committee on Federal Relations, and Insert the Peace Conference propositions offered by Carllle; but it was fairly talked down by Wise, who is determined, he says, that if he is not allowed to be heard, fully, he will give the Convention no peace. He is not for Immediate secession, though an antagonist of most of the Union men in the Convention. narvie. or Amelia, said in debate, that If the Convention remained here long enough, the peof?le would decide the issue for secession. There s more force in this remark than ) generally supposed beyond the limits of th<> State Nevertheless, so far as 1 ran ascertain, the secessionists do not expect to nass an ordinance for unconditional or lni'Tieaiate withdrawal. The substitute will be rejected, undoubtedly, either this evening or to-morrow, unless the talking policy prevents a vote. W. Richmond, Va . March Jo, 1^61. Editor of tkf Star Disunionism has been setting down at the heel here for some days past, It being found impoisibie to keep up such a head of steam (froth) on the machine as It carried a week or two ago It is conceded that It will be impossible for the Disunionists to defeat the majority s proposition, which remits the question of secessloa to the proposed border State Convention That will act on it next June, probably calling a National Convention In October, which will doubtless adopt something which the friends of the Union In everv Stat? wilt .ki. ?? y __ mam wv HVK ?V tUI I JT triumphantly.

Tbe report as a whole, after some amendments, was adopted as fellows : lVA<r<nj, A memorial has been sent to this Conference from a Convention of Laymen, held in tbe city of Baltimore, December 5th, I860, representing large majority of tbe laity of our Church, and like pap-rs from other sources asking this Conference to take such action as will give quiet to our people, and remove all obstructions to the preaching of the Gospel among them by the preachers of this Conference. And whereas a similar memorial from the Convention of l.avmen representing the membership of the Methodist Rnisconal Chnrrh itr\A*r * rail of tbe Presiding Elders, and an equal number of Laymen, convened In Staunton. March, 13, 1861, for the purpose of devising some harmonious plan of action, to be pursued by the Ministry and Laity of this Conference in relation to the offensive rhange of the Discipline of said Methodist Episcopal Church on the subject of -slavery, has reached the following conclusions and presented the same for our most favorable consideration, Tiz: [Here follows the preamble and resolutions adopted by the Lay Convention ] And whereas, Thla Conference is cognizant of the facts set forth in these memorials, that sixteen years of contention and strife within our borders, brought about by the continual agitation of the slavery auestion, has retarded the preaching of the Gospel, Lindred our cooperation in tbe great missionary and other enterprises of the Church, and materially checked the "growtii of Methodism in a ureat Dart of our tf-rritnrv And whereas, we, the preacher# of the Baltimore Annual Conference, feeling that we are called to preach the Gospel alone, and not that of ?frr/?and contention, but of peace. And whereas She late General Conference at Butt.ilo, bv it* new chapter on slavery, has added additional burdens which we cannot bear, placed obstructions in our way in the forms of doctrine* and duties which w?- all know will alienate the hearts of the people from us, and render us obnoxious to civil penalty and censure, and have wantonly aspersed tbe itemory of our pious dead by representing them as having lived and died in sin Therefore? I 1. Be it resolved by the Baltimore Annual Conferine, in Con/en nee nesembted. That we hereby declare that the General Conference of the Meth- ' ortist Kpiscopal Church, held at Buftalo in May, J lvtiO, by its unconstitutional action has sundered J tbe ecclesiastical relation which Las hitherto bound us together as one Church, so far as any act ] of theirs could do so; that we will not longer sub- ] rnit to the jurisdiction of taid Genon!
