THE EVENING STAR. The htt'lhgencrr urges the c*U of a National Convention of all the Sta'es, a* the only remedy for the evil* now distracting the country. The Rtpubltca* argurs that if the Secessionists attack Fort Pic ken*, the patriotism of Virginia will be manifested with an energy which will end ail hopes of secession in that quarter. A National Cohvixtios?The Inttlligenctr, tbis morning. In an article of great power and cogency, urges the President to call Congress together without delay, with his executive recom mendation to them to submit our national difll cultles to the proper arbitrament of a National Convention constitutionally selected to the par tbe Imbroglio without a bloody war either be tween the ttaueral Government and the Oligarchy. or the latter and those whom they have already virtual y enslaved, as explained above. The Intilhgtnctr ibowi with convincing force that the course of the Administration In toe premi ses up to this time has been eminently wise and patriotic; and that It la in a position at this mo ment to shape the result happily for the country; and. further, that the action of the last Congress baa so tied 1U hands, as that it is by no Steins able, if It were willing?which we know well it Is not?to essay to a >lve the difficulty by pursuing the policy of aggressive warfare, which more or less of iU ultM partix in* urge upon It uuceasing ly. Our sincere belief 1s that the promulgation of a President! il proclamation convening Con gress to aid the Kxecntive in bringing the troubles of the times to a peaceful aud j?*l conclusion, If tbat be possible, iu concentrating the public mind upon the expedient of a National Convention, would at once drfrat tbe machinations of the par tisans of the usurping Oligarchy In every border slaveholdlng Mate, and ornanize powerful Union parlies tu each usurped State, standing forth a* Union men favoring the prompt return of their respective States back under the authority of the United States, upon such terms as tbe National Convention may agree upon. We believe further, that such a Convention will bs composed almost exclusively of men really anxio.s to settle tbe imbrogUu upon terms con servative of the rights of all sections. Oar o?rw belief is that the repeal of the personal liberty bills, and tte adoption by the Stat** of the Ccrwl* amendment of tbe Constitution, following oa the bet-la of the entire settlement of all the late territorial alavery questions which la Involved In the recent creation of the three new territorial gov ern merits which cannot fail to prove entirely aatls factory to every true friend of the I'nion at the South, when thoroughly understood there, will prove a final settlement of the troublea that will sweep the country at the ballot-box, like wildfire; even In the uanrped Statea, wherein the people, up to this time, have be~n robbed, it will be remem bered; of free apetth. the liberty of the pr- as. and the freeman's votliij? franchl?e. Tbeaeare terms which Virginia will accept by fifty thousand imjorltv, despite the noise made by her diaunion ista. and the halting, faltering, apologizing mis uca made up to this time by so many ot her Union public men who lack boldness to take by the throat the spirit of disunion now threatening W> compel the sp?edy extradition of ail the State's slaves on the one hand, and the entire deprivation of her white laboring population of all their dis tinctive American liberties on the other. We believe, further, that every non siavehoid ln^ Bute will promptly accede to those terms Thus, we believe, that tbe only difficulties In the way of ending the troubles lie in the persistant treachery of the Oli nrr hi- fnr t?.? -.v. ing tiie Government, and in the equally treacber oas conduct of such publicists as the New York Tribwu set, who would madly induce the Gov ernment to ti*iy to cram tk-ir v!ewi of the fitness of things governmental down the throats of the Sooth with fire and sword. A national conven tion would quickly render it apparent that th strength of the Oligarchy at the South Is but the temporary strength of fraud, usurpation and mob riolen<*e culminating in the momentary ascend ancy of despotism, that ha* but to be thoroughly appreciated by its abased subjects, to be speedily deposed On the other band, it would as quickly show that nine-tenths of the people of the North repu dlste utterly the mad idea* upon which the 7>? tauM's policy for the emergency is founded. When that becomes so apparent that the disunion press and leaders at the South can no longer bide It from the southern people, the country will instantly comprehend that the whole trouble amounts to nothing more than palpable delusions prevailing South and North, seized on and used In both sections by bed men for bad ends. 1 m ? IKBKIIA *-05VI.HT103'S CoMMlTTH OF Tk?zb. to inquire of the President what may be tbe meaning ot the shipment of troops from New York, will doubtless be kindly received nnd frankly answered. They will surely obtain all tbe information which the exl^encie* of tbe pub lic service will permit the President to accord The chances are ten to one that they will learn, officially, ttat many of them have gone on Got. Houston's call to rescue the lives and property of th? defei sel-M people of the Texas frontier from tbe tender mercies of tbe savages to which the machinations of disunion and the treachery of Twiggs have given thrni over. They will probibly also learn that a portion of tbem msy necessarily be u?ed to protect the pub lic Interest sga'.nst whatever srbrmes that may be Involved lu the hurr'.rd raising by the Oligarchy of some five thousand troops in ail the seceded States, In deprecation of which not a word is being uttered by so n.any who profess to be anx ious to keep tbe peace between tbe usurpers and the United states if such should be tbe replies, the people of Virginia will endorse their pro priety, at the poll*, despite the vacillation of such of her Unionist public men as are now qnailing before tbe dernigog'.sro of her Disunions:*. Aprofc*.?In view of the fact that a consider- j able portion of the public?and none more than themselves?regard the action of tbeVirglnla Con vention as being quite as Important to tbe future of the country as that of the (>overnment at this point, we take it for granted that tbe Committee of Three to arrive here this ev*nii.?F ? ?? v? --- ? ???^ ?nrn ou* | tborlzed, when interrogating the President, to Mate frankly to him what those tk*y represent de sign doing in the crista, u It la not unlikely tint the policy of the Government may be net ess.irily more or leaa Influenced by their flnal action?that f the Virginia Convention. On the whole, we think the Star at liberty to aay that the Vlrglnlacommittee will be kindly re ceived, courteously treated, and frankly Informed * concerning every poi nt in the Government's policy that has really been aettled on; which cannot be many In number, insomuch aa it (the Govern ment) must neceaanrlly be governed by circum stance* In time* like the present.

How ever it may be, he will meet with a warm recep tion If be ventures an attack upon Brownsville, and tbe Texans will give him a wrrse defeat than even old Santa Anna encountered on tbe plains cf Buena Vista. The idea of subjugating Texas w;th 3 000 men, or even ten times that number, hardly rises to the proportions of a good joke. Tbe first hostile gun tbat echoes along tbe Kio Grande will be the signal for a rally of tbe Texans there In force sufficient to scatter Ampudla and his men like leaves before the wind " Precautions at Charleston ?It is said tbat It forius part of tbe reyul^r duty of several ?tenrn. er? to cruise through the harbor of Charleston every night, to guard against surprise. and that pilot boata are constantly sailing outside of the bar, re?dy to give timely notice of the approach of any Untied states vessel-of-war.
