In view of the fact that the Oligarchic authorities have violated their pledge that Anderson should be permitted to purchase p-ovisious in Charleston if the Government would refrain from attempting to reinforce him, if there Is anything like true honor and good faith left in th*lr breasts, Davis may well have issued the orler mentioned above. When they gave tbe pledge, they knew well that It was In tbe Gov rnment's power to Lave reinforced Anderson at will, and to crush out all forcible opposition to Its authority In Charleston harbor, as easily as a strong man mr.y crush an egg shell. Hence the pledge whs given, ar.d tbe condition exacted from the Government. But the Instant tte Oligarchy's preparations for assailing Sumter were completed, Anderson was notified that the pledge would no longer be observed.

It ia so signally and grossly an act of bad faitb on their P?rt. as that no protons* designed to conceal It can possibly succeed anywhere, in tbia or any other country. It alao mekes plain tbe fact that tbe Oligarchy have left tbe Government no other alternative save eltber to let Anderson's command starve, or to withdraw it under circumstances wherein will be Involved an acknowledgment of the justice and legality of the usurpation of the government of the s*o'Jth on Its part, which the Presideut ha: no lawful rlgt-.t whatever to accord. it has clearly been the evident aim of tbe Gov?rnnient to preserve the status of tifilrstn CLarleaton harbor, and throughout the a-rrded States precisely aa they were when the pledge w&a given 'hat An<1er?on should be permitted to obtain | ioviaiou If the Government would make no attempt to reinforce aim.

Under these circumstances, and !n view of the farther fact that the Oligarchy have notoriously been straining every nerve to prepare to assail Anderson's command n? speedily as possible, (wbllt tk.. ? * i * - >ur uo*rrnmeni aia nu; ruiae a linger to reinforce him, or even to a?jiid bint a barrel of aupplie*. until Beauregard notified him that be abouid get no more proviaioaa,) no amoan! of miarepreaentatlon can poaaibly creaic on the m'.ada of any, tbe Idea that tbe Government at thia point ia responalbla for tbe fearful eventa in Charleston barber, mvi of wbtch may b? momentarily expected, aa explained above.

But tbey nevertheless went to work, as if in earnest, and delicately foreshadowed their purposes to the Administration- If we art; to believe the statements which have reached us, the Secretary of State, for tbe Government, following the example In tbe case of tbe South Carolina Commissioners, bas courteously Informed them that they cannot be received in a diplomatic or oillcial character Several notes pissed; so, at last, they fired a huge shot at tbe Administration, accusing It of perftd tv, cLar^iiiir tbat. if civil w?? ???i%-**- ? ^ ^ w ? ?- a < VH t > V.

Having thus relieved themselves, they yesterday left Washington, bound for Montgomery, to make their oral rep-e eatatlons, we suppose, to the government at that point. As they did not?eoold not?have anticipated a mm ?fal termination of their ailssion, we are at a losa to conceive why they ahou;d be chagrined The Adrislnlatratlon was not dlinnicH ?? k- i tensely frightened at any amount of threat* conseqoent or the failure of their diplomacy.

Trx Pkospkct or Pback?Without having definite Information to that effect, It it clear from what we bear around us, that the President believes that Jefferson Davis has saved the honor of the Oligarchy in the matter of food for Anderson's command, by directing that the vessel bearing him supplies shall be permitted to perform her errand unmolested. If _this should prove to be the case, the country will instantly breathe freely again; as all danger of speedy collision will have instantly vanished. P>r ccntra ?We are very sure that yesterday a dispatch was received in this city from General Beauregard, Raying that in the course of the day be should mcke a formal demand on Anderson to evacuate Sumter, and If it was not acceded to, he should attack it without awaiting the arrival of the provisions-bearing ve?sel. Trkasckt Notes.?A Flight Mistake!?NVe pcrceive that the Baltimore Sun of this morning has made a small mistake, involving a large result, in the 44 general dispatch" sent Inst night from this city. Only one cipher is omitted. This 0 standing by itself amounts to no king{ but, added to 491,000, makes the considerable sum of ice amount or Treasury notes bid for. If, as every one believes, It is necessary to mind the p's and q's, a due attention to O's, in financial matters, is certainly not less important. ____________________________ 1 No News To-da.t from Charleston cp to 1 P.

There la no doubt that orders for the immediate flttlng-out of the United States ships Wabash, Perry and Savannah, have been received at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The housing of the Wr.bash was removed yea terday, extra hand* put to work on her. and pre. paratlons were made to put coal on board, which shows that the authorities are In a hurry to hav? her completed for commission. From the appearance of things, her machinery vfrill be finish*d l>y Mr. King very soon, and steam will probably be applied on Saturday. The ringing, carpenter's work and ordnance, were taken in hands. to be hurriedly got ready. The Wabash is In fine condition, rates 40 glint, but does not carry more than 25.

The brig Perry, wbote state of readiness is to be turned Into condition for active service, will be rigged to-day. 9!x days will suffice to put her in duty trim. The Perry is 230 tout burden, carries 6 guns, and was built at Gosport in 1M13 She has crulaed on nearly every station, and was last attached to the Paraguay expedition. She can be made ready for sea in tbree weeks. The corvette Savannah, now in the dry dock, % UJ be prepared also, we should judge. She can be*put in tl.e commissioned state in live weeks. The Savannah is a sailing corvette, l,?2fi tons burden, is rated foi 21 guns and 300 men, and was built at Brooklyn In 1*12 She was a 50-gun frlghte until 185?

The Koanoke iirs at the wharf in course of repair. althouxh the work upon h?r was not urpentlv pressed 1 he machinery has been taken apiiYt, and a portion of it removed to the machine shop lor alteration With the utmost energy nnd celerity possible, she could not be made ready for sea service In less than twenty days. She is l>e;ng caulked, and is receiving extp:i?ive repairs from the hands of the carpenters and joiners Commodore Stringbam, the newly appointed commander-in-chief of the Home Squadron, was to leave this city last night to Join his ship at Huston. He could sail In leas than ten days for Pensacola. The marine garrison of the Brooklyn navy-yard was to have been paid oil'yesterday, MaJ.

The Journal sutes that aome of Mr. Lincoln's friend* beard of tbe existence of a plot of this nature, and immediately employed a detective to inveatigate the matter. Tbe officer went to Baltimore and occupied a period of three weeks in tracing tbe conspiracy " Soon after hia arrival ia that city, (saya the Jonrnal.) the detective diacovered a combination of men banded together under a solemn oath to assa'slnnte the President elect The leader of the conspirator* wssan Italian refugee, a barber, well known in Baltimore, who assumed the name of Or'tnt, a# indicative of the part be wu to perform Th" assistants employed by the detect! ve, who, like himself, were strangers in Baltimore city, by assuming to be sece?siontsts from Louisiana sod other at- edlng States, gained tbe confidence of some of the conspirators, and were entnired with their plans. It was arranged In case Mr. Lincoln should pdss safely over tbe railroad to Baltimore, that the conspirators should mingle with the crowd which might surround his carriage, and by pretending to be bis friends, be enabled

to approach his person, when, upon a signal froin their leader, some of them would shoot at Mr. Lincoln with their pistols, and others i would throw Into his carriage hand grenades ' filled with detonating powder, similar to those > used in tbe attempted assassination of the Emperor, Louis Napoleon. It was intended that in the 1 confusion which should result from this attack, the assailants should escape to a vessel which was i waiting in the Larbor to receive them, and be 1 carried to Mobile, In the seceding State of Ala bama " On theSlsiof February Information of the exl? tence of this conspiracy was conveyed to Mr. Lincoln at Philadelphia The President deI rlnr?^ Hl? *' '**1 Ll- - ? .... an nr 11 null IU 1U1UI U1B prORllK 10 T d\?t the American tlag un Independence Hall, and to ' mef. the Legislature of Pennsylvania at Harrisburg, and did so.

Here he wes luet by the detective, who had a carriage in readiness into which the party entered, and were 1 driven to the depot of the Philadelphia, W11' mington and iSaltimore Railroad. "They did not reach the depot until a quarter past II; but fortunately for them, the regular train, the hour of which, for starting, was 11, had been delayed The party then took berths in the sleeping car, and witnout change of cart, pastt-d directly through to Washington, where they arrived at the usual hour, half-pust 6. on the morning of Saturday, the i3d .Mr. Lincoln wore no disguise whatever, but journeyed In an ordinary traveling dress." The special mrsarnger wb* was dispatched to Philadelphia to entreat Mr Lincoln to proceed quletiv to Washington was Mr. F. W. Sewaid, son of Secr?tary Seward. The detective officer traveled with Air. Lincoln under the name of E. J. Allen, which name was registered with the President elect's on the books at Wlllnrds' Hotel. Being a well-mown individual, he was speedllv rccognized, and suspicion nuturally arose tbat he had been instrumental in exposing the plot which caused Mr. Lincoln's hurried journey. It was detrned prudent that he should leaveW ashLugtou two da>s after his arrival, although he had intended to remain and witness the ceremonies of inauguration The Journal adds the following particulars: ' The characters and pursuits of the conspirators were various. Some of them were Impelled by a fanatical zenl which they termed patriotism, and they ju*titled their acts by the example of Brutus in ridding his country of a tyrant One of them was accustomed to recite passages put into the mouth of the character of Brutus in Shakspeare's play of Julius Caesar. Others were stimulated by th* r>UV?r of pecuniary reward. Tutse, It was observed, staid away from their usual places of work for several weeks prior to the intended assault. Although their circumstance* had previously rendered them dependent uu thetr daily labor for support, they were during the time abundantly supplied with money, which they squandered in bar-rooms and disreputable places After the discovery of the plot, a strict watch was kept by the agents of detection over the movementsof the conspirators, and efficient measures were adopted to guard against any attack which they might meditate upon the President elect until he was installed in office " The names of the conspirators will not at present be divulged. But they are in possession of responsible parties, including the President. ' The number originally ascertained to be banded together for the assassination of .Mr Lincoln was twenty; but the number of those who were fully appr.sed of the details of the pint became dally smaller as the time for executing it drew near. ' Some of the womewm ployed by the detective went to serve as waiters, seamstresses, 4c., in the families of the conspirators, and a record was r'-eularly kept of what wu ?* id sad done to furib?r their enterprlie. A record wm alto kept by the detective of their deliberation! In tecret conci iv*, but, for tuttlcient reatoni, It It withheld for the present from publication The det c#ve fiid h:j agent* regulariy contributed aioney to pay the exper.aea of the conspiracy."
