???? THE EVENING STAR. j?< WASHINGTON OUT: MONDAY Ap'll *, 1M1. -1-~ ? ? Spirit ( the Morning Prfsi The ImttUtgtmeer regards much of the information spread out In the New York journal*, with respect to the policy of the Administration, as merely the manufacture of ahrewd aenaation wrlVra. and aa having very llttie reliability. The Republican argues that a resolute defense of tbe Federal property in the South will have a happy effect In that quarter, by sobering the southern community and giving the friends of t&t L nion courage. Tixa? ?Texas la doubtless the destination of the greater portion, !f not all the troop*, monitions, Ac , now being hurried to sea, from New York. The usurpers of her government In suddenly stripping her frontier (through |he treasonable act of Twiggs) of the three thousand Uuited States troops necessarily kept th?re for ten years past, have exposed the settlers In two whole tiers of frontier counties?covering a territory perhaps five hundred miles long and a hundred w'.de?to the merciless vengeance of the Comanchies. Bcedies, "Waccoes, Keechles, Towaccanles, Li pans, and half a dozen other tribes of more warlike and effective warriors than any others on this continent, with none of whom Lave the Government yet been able to establish more than nominal relations of amity. Already h.ive these merciless sivages driven In?back upon the tjwer settlements? nearly all the Inhabitants of these two tiers of counties?a population of at lea?t ten thniuaud. of whom quite three thousand are the best frontiersmen (in a military point of view) in the world. They are, to a man, anti-disunlonists; If but because "secession1' has already cost them the loss of *k.(. ti.. It - ? * 4W-I- * 11! urn uuilicn.

Sam Houston, who still protests and proclaims h!? rightful authority as Governor of Texas, hr.s doubtless demanded of the Government at this point the protection cf the people of those counties, from the Indians. The Government here can lawfully recognize no other Stjte authority in Texas than his; for that which sets up the pretense of having violently deposed him, Is evidently the boldest usurpation of a miserable minority of the pe*>ple of Texas, conceivable. The Convention pretending to have deposed Houston was unlawfully called Thedisunlonists elected to It were s'* elected by not a third of the vote of the State The sham of r^ferrin^ its secession rdlnance back to the r?eon!e w*? * planned to prevent fair expression of the people upon It, ttin?e of neajty half tbe counties In tbe State not having been allowed time tvrn to know that such a question had been nominally referred to them; while, wherever tbey could take the ballot-boxes In their own haads, they ' stuffed'* them, as at Franklin, ,Just opposite El Paso.) full of fraudulent vote* fur disunion. A gentleman of high character, now in tb's city, wbo vited theie againa? secession, .assures us that sixty-eight men only voted thereon th it occasion; yet the "returns" from Franklin r? present tbe disunion vote there to have been over nine butidred 1 Even with a resort to auch frauds as are explained above. the returns do not pretend that half tbe vote of the State was thrown on the occasion, nor that one uiru io? voie ci lae Mate wai c*st for tUe acceptance of the secession ordinance!

We place no reliance whatever upon them Up to this moment, whether emanating from this city or coming from North or soutn, not one of them has turned out to be worth a pinch of snuff Yesterday, it was said here that Sumter had been attacked on the nl^ht before?also Pickens ; also that the Virginia Convention had passed a secession ordinance; also that the ships and troops about to be sent out from the North by the Government are destined to open war pro forma, upon the coasts of South Carolina, Florida,Georgia,Mississippi, and I*ouisiana, Ac , Ve ?of which the public may believe as much as they fancy.

Lieutenant Pnyder lnd mentioned ib?- fa' ts of tte tiring into the unknown schooner, (as described In our issue of vesterdav.) and in formed the fiovernor that tbeveaael 111 question was a Boston schooner, loaded with Ice. and bound for Savannah, and that she bad put into this harbor on account of stress of weather. He further said that one of the ahota bad paaaed through the schooner's sail Lieutenant Snyder then returned to the wharf in company with an iid, and went back to the fort. During bis interview with the Governor, the soldie-s who manned the boat had seized the opportunity to lay In some coveted individual supplies of whisky, tobacco, eatables. and a boat of "other provisions, making In all no less than tblrty-tlve packages. The police, however. had kept a bright aye upon the soldiers. and wbeu the provisioning was complete, they quietly seized all the packages and transferred theui to the uardhouse During the whole of yesterday afternoon all kind* of rumor* were rife on the ?treeU A v*gne lmpres*ion had somehow got abroad that the long attony of suspense and Inaction was to be speedily and abruptly ended; but how, or when, or by whose orders, nobody could tell. We have made diligent Inquiry, and (in the absence of ofllcial Information, which, In a juncture like this, is seldom made public,) we deem the following facts to be reasonably certain: First. That the supplies of provisions and the mall*, hitherto furnished regularly to the garrison of Fort Sumter, are to he cut ofl tn^ay. and that no further communiiatlon will be allowed between Major Anderson and the Government at w .isLingit>n.
