Wattsctos, Jan. 5, ISfll. The Committee of the Border states, Including Dela ware, Maryland, Virgin,a, Kentucky, Missouri and Xorth Carolina, from the South, and Now Jersey, Pennsy lvania, ?iiio, Indiana, Illinois, 4c., from the Xorth, to day agreed opon propositions for an adjustment of pending difitool ties, by amending the constitution, as follows:? 1. Recommending a repeal of all the Personal Liberty bills. 2. That the Fugitive Slave law be amended for the pro Tenting of kidnapping, yd so as to provide for the equa lization of the Commissiraers' fee, fee. 3. Jtat the constitution be so nmendod as to prohibit any interference with slavery in any of the States where it bow exiets. 4. That Congress shall not abolish slavery in the Southern do- kyards, arsenals, ho., nor in the District of Columbia without tho consent of Maryland and the con sen of the inhabitants of tho District, cor without com pensation. 6. Tlat Congress shall not interfere with tl?? Inter state slave trade. t. That thero shall b" a perpetoa' prohibition of tho African slave trade. 7. That tho line of .16 decrees 30 m'.niites shall be run through all tlie Glinting territory of tho I'nittyl States; that in all north of that lino slavery shall be prohibited, and that routh of that lino nether Congress nor tho Territorial T/gisluturo that! hereafter pass any law abolishing, prohibiting or lb any manner interfering with African slavery, and that when any Territory con- ' t*inmg a sufficient population for ono member of Con- i grass n any area of 60.000 squaro miles shall apply for admission as a Stato, It Khali be admitted, with or with out slavery, as its constitution may determine. Jt <s known that these propositions would have I teen ac ceptable to Senator Toonbs a fortn.ght sinoe, and they will now unless the secession race In bis State has outstripped ail souse of uioderatinu and conciliation. Mr. Crittenden called upon the President to-day, and in formed him v.hat bad been done. Tlie President may, per haps, commend it, or refer to it, In hi3 special message wi Monday nwt, transmitting thecorr^'-pond^nce between himeclf and the South Carolina Comu: ^sioner#. Tliere is, after ail, one gleam of t'lnrhine?one ray of hope. This last compromise has tho advantage of bel^g fatherless, and lience is not likely to bo opposed or picked to pieces on account of its parentage. It is said here, on top of this favorable report from tho Border Stato Committee, (hat tho President elect 1ms dono something towards a pacSileat.on of tho Cc on. It it> his dch;re, and tliat of his friends, in the increasing danger of the country, to have the great question ?'?'ttled before he enters tho White House. In iho fear of a failure to accomplish a settlement, after they bccamo satistied that the determination of tho South to secedo was something more than a shower, the porpose was to 1 foreo Mr. Buchanan to adopt coerslvj raossurof, in order that the odium of suoh a cotrro might fall on , the present administration. This course having failed, the republicans discovered that something should bo done towards a pacification. If the feeling of the masses at the South has not been amuse I to too high a pitch to ssbsile without actral secesa <*, there Is now some chance of an arrangement. Strange as It may ap pear, I am tow to t'-lJ y<n that the President I elect ba<< given a carte blaiuhi t Senator Regard and Thurlow W?<?4 to agree upon any pla i Oi settlenv nt that "New York r.nd Pennsylvania can st.nd upon ' Sonata Seward, yon know, is to go into Sid Cabin"t a? Premier, and that strengthens the belter in this statement. Hk en who arc In po?*ess:oo of this report believe that tho piantobo proposed by tho Border stato Oommitteo on Monday wBl be sustained by Senator Reward. The city la more quiet and compoeed to-nigh', the re ported compromise to be offered by tho border States having alma'.y bii a miraculous "ffec* in easing the pub lic mind. The ? omproru'se proposed by the ccir.Tcittec of border States is not accepted by the South. Tb ?

Ho was of opinion that it might be better | I'or it>c North to take this proportion than to precipitate the country into war. Mr. Howard, of Michigan, caul he objected to any com 1 piomise, because bo believed it to bo an acknowledgment i of an error, which ho would not conceit". Ho defended the motives of the republicans in the Committee of Thir ' ty three, and expressed the opinion that they lutd done I noth ng that could bo interpreted as a surrender of their pr.nclples. Those who understand Mr. Adams' jKj-iixm i do not believe this. Mr. l/.vi'joy, of Illinois, sfeakmg of tbe malcon tents of iho slavo States, and the proposed cora pr< tniso of dividing lho territory between free dom and slavery to the Pacific, Mid, "There never w?8 a more causeless revolt su.ee Luoifer led i ,b cohorts of apostate angels against tho throne of (iod, but 1 never heard that the Almighty proposed to coir-pron: ?e the mntter by allowing the rebel* to kindle thefresof hell south of the cleetial inerid^n of thirty six thirty.'' This o-itburst of the eccentric member from Illinois created a deal of sensation and some movement. Mr. ShKHMis stated that, as a member of the bor der sub-committee from the border Statjs, be could neith<T vote for tho proposition proposed by Mr. Hale, ror ih.it proposed by Mr. Orittonden, to restore the Missouri Hue and extend it to tho Pacific, lie was also opptt ?'d to tho compromise to prevent tho abolition of slavery in tho District of Colombia. While he did not wish to abolish it now, he was opposed to yielding tip the right of Congress to do eo at any future pet i3d. Mr. Grow, of Pennsylvania, expressed himself decidedly opposed to a!! compromise?. Ho asked what better plat form the N'oith or the South could have to stand upon than the Union, the constitution and the laws? The re publican party has elected a President iu accordance with the forms of the constitution, and is entitled to fair play. If his administration of the government is restated by those oppoecu to Mr. Lincoln, the crime will be theirs. When the republicans took their position, before tbe elec 1 tion, they knew they would have to meet this state of I things, and now they sboulu not put the burden upon posterity. Messrs. Flick man nnd Stevens, of Pennsylvania, and Case, of Indiana, opposed all compromises in speeches couched in unmistakeable language. Mr. Pettit, of Indiana, from the sub committee of bor der States, said bo ha J opposed all Ac proposition in that committee ^eept the one proposed by Mr. Hale, upon which he did not vote, no defended the border States for their ( Boris to arrange matters. Mr. teal, of New York, required why his State was not consulted? Mr. Pettit replied that New York was not upon the im mediate border of the slave states. Some one then asked why Arkansas and North Carolina were invited to join the sub committee? Mr. Stanton. of Ohio, and Mr. Nixon, of New Jersey, expressed flu msehret in favor of some compromise. lho caucus ttuMiar.ouBly apeed to press tbe business of (he country in the House. Mr. Paws, of Massachusetts, moved tLu>t no votj bo taken on ?r;- of tho propositions, and ili.il the salens ad- i jouin situ iit, which was carried. The caucus was fully attended, and w?- Irr.rnioni-vu- .it the eli'f sga:ust all compromise. Tlic f-niniittc of Thirty three had a mating today, l>ut art Ivod at no conclusion. Mr. Hnrijiton,of Texas,oflffcreda proposition, submit t.ng the wholo-u'ljeet now agitating the country to a i nvcMion of the people. It is as follows:? Kesoived, That this cmmittec do recommend the poa ?age "f joint resolutions, respectfully recommending to the severnl S? tev a general convention in this city, on a ?lay to V tixed by delegates cho en diroctly by the peo ple iu Die several States, to consider of and advise such intendments to the constitution of tho United Stutes at ?nay bo necessary to protect the interests and pre ??:\c the gc\erinvnt of the country, and that an appropriation bo made to defray tho expenses of such convention. Mr Hamilton explained that, if such B convention could be called, it would trr.nsfcr the whole subject into tho ham's of a new class of men, who could Approach the subject untiummelcd by the numerous complications and c mtuiini' nts which surround the mm who arc now en deavoring to rettlc t. He proposed that the convent .on should i .\nn- ,no c.ilmly and diliberateiy tho whole ques tion . nd then propose such amendments to the constitu tion as the wisdom of tho body might deem necessary, and Ibit Congrsss should then meet, and in a oonstltu t m I way ]'a s laws recommending tueh amendments to tho Legislator' * of the several States for their action.

Tbo Secretary of the Navy tq day ordered a company of United State* marin's, under command of Major Ter rett.if tluit corpe, from tbe barracks at this place, and took passage in the steamer Philadelphia from the Navy Yard ibis afternoon to Kort Washington, to form a garri son. Tbe fort is about nine miles from this place, and directly oppoi-itc to Mount Veinou. Tbe arrival of seventeen recruits from Philadelphia, for (be purpose of being drilled at the Murine Barraeks at Washington, has been magnified into undue importance. On inquiry at the proper quarter it ha* boen ascertained i but, before Juuc last, it being found that the arms at the several arsenals were not proportionately distributed and that the Southern arsenals were quite deficient in those supplies, a distribution was made for equalisation only, and for no other object. They wore principally drawn from iho Springiield armory, ami the arsenals at Watervliet, N. Y., and Watertown, Mans. The secession troubles, it is known, had not then commcucod. Aftor the distribution was completed, there remained a pre, ponderance of arms at tbe North. Some curiosity exists here to kuow how and where the telegraphic orders of General Scott to the commanding officer of Fort Leavenworth leaked out on the way hence to their destination. It is paid tbe leakage occurred either in the Cincinnati or St. Lous offices, and tho matter is being thoroughly investigated by tbe managers of tbe telegraph in those placet-. From additional information, derived from tbe most re liable sources, your correspondent is authorized to state that the feeling in Virginia is Increasing to an alarming degree, justifying the action of South Carolina, and the attempts of tbe President to coerce South Carolina will be met in Virginia with Etern resistance. Many members of the Legislature of that State have recently been in Wash ington, and tbe predominant sentiment among them has been against coercion. From tho best Information wo aro inform ed that the Legislature will, in solemn form, without diFCUEiion, order th'i assembling of a State Convention. Accompanying this act will be passed a joint resolution denying the right of coercion against a Southern Slate, and the pledge will be given by tho legis lative body or the State that any such attempt will bo resisted at all points and to tho last extremity. Senator ToombB received despatches to-day, stating that upwards of one hundred counties bad been heard from in Georgia, and that two thirds of tbe Convention were for secession. Tbe follow ing is an extract from a letter to a m Jtnber j of Congre?s from l-ouisiana from an influent inl source:?? I have never seen such a crisis. Tho causo of Imme diate accession is gaining ground every day,and 1 havo i no doubt at present the secession pnrty will be trfumph ant in th" State.

Yet after be Khali have accom plished all in his power, the naked truth will be uia?lo more manifest, that, in cteitfMKe of the inactivity asd imbecility of Con grew, the great array of strength w 11 be on the sido of tin* South. Georgia has occupied Fort Pulaski. Thin is the strongest position un our coast, aa?l a email State t'oroe can prevent its being retaken, oven .f the united strength of our whole navy were brought against it. i'ensacola is equally impregnable. If the people of New Orleans occupy the defences at the mouth of the Mifstssipni, the navy of Great Britain could not dislodge tlicm. Fort Henry in the hande of Virginia, and Fort McHenry in possession of the militia of Mary land. would abundantly protect the seaboard of those two States. Mr. Buchanan has not now, nor has he over had, disposable troops to h?l.l these places property. How idle, foolish and absnrd then ;t .s to prattle about coercion. It is the fashion here, as everywhere, to throw the onus of our present position On the .idtuinii- tratlon. The staple of talk of members of both bouses of Congress is abuse, of the President for not having done what ho )uld not do, and what but for the sheer stupidity and negli gence of our uati< nal representatives w?ukl havo been lung since a'complished. Tbe movement to take posses sion of the District of Columbia and prevent the inaugu ration of Mr. 1 incoin is haMd upon the ?uppooe<i neces sity on the part of Virginia to take the lead .n the South em movement to prevent her own Interests from going to the devil. Every man in Washington bel ? vet tie) at tempt will be made; still, not one member of <ougr?ss hero had the boldness and patriot inn to proper- an act empowering the calling out of militia fr >m adjoining States to secure peao ,11 the cupf'al. I he administration tights single banded against surrounding difficulties. With nerve aiut statesmanship to aid him, Mr. Huclianan could become master of the si'uat'on n a fortnight; but he is shackled, impeded and prostrated by those who ought to be his most ettlcient support. Major Anderson in believed to have acted the part of sagacious soldier. He was informed, before ho left, :?>r Charkston, that Fort Piackney bad a furnace for bent ug shot, which would enable him with a singlo comixuiy to defy all Month Carolina, and reduce Charleston to ashe* 11 ease of attack. Tt was requisite, however, that he otiouid hold Fort Moultrie with thr*e companies more, aud two at VV>rt Sumter. With the snia'l unmber of meu under his command, he did :ha wisest thing?what, asasoldier, common sense exacted?in retiring to Fort <'imter. wiser > he Is comparatively safe, and, w th his own safety, the chances of bloodshed are greatly diminished.

INAUGURAL OP GOV. ANDREW, OF MASSA CHUSETTS. Biwmv. Tan. 3. 1<WI. fiov, Andrew was inaugurated ahortly after noon (o day, and delivered his message to tno Legislature. ^lio Governor review* tbe tln;mcial condition of the State, rc fers to the late report of the Valuation Comnittce and to the elllcicnt condition of tho militia, but. suggests the wisdom of organizing a portion of tho d<rmant tn 'ifia. Agriculture bus prospered. Caution should be exerciked in legislation as ti the banks, but the issue of small rovn may usefully bo restricted. A moditlcation of *be usury laws, as well as tho law s of divorce, is advised. Defect*? are suggested in the laws us to insurance. Tbe aooiftion of capital punishment, and a repeal of the two years' amohd mcut restricting the right of suffrage, are re.-onrunon>ttxi, and caution is advisei us to changes in the laws lately revised. The Governor submits the entire ? 'ibject of tbo Personal Liberty laws to (he legislature, with a clcar statement of tho grounds on which, by good citizens, they arc deemed constitutional; but be does not indicate his course incase of their repeal. Full confidence ,a ex pressed in tho Judiciary, who will secure to all their constitutional rights, and if any embarrassments exist in raising and reserving questions of law tor the appropriate tribunal*, tho Legislature will repair tbe error. But we must uot repeal provisions of law found necessary to the liberty of white and black alike. The right of secession Is rigorously denied, and the legislature s ad{ vised to give expression to the views of Massachusetts. The evil elitets of it at the .South are lamented. If we can do any thing to avert them we should certainly do it. Massachusetts always has been loyal to the O'oc. Tlo present troubles arc not at her door. She has been shamefully misrepresented by persous whose pretended friendship for tbe South meant really hatred of their op ponents. Whatever rights i>ertain to any persons under tbe constitution always shall be secure in this Suite. Tho same rights must be maintained in every other State. There is hut ouo issuo before the country now?shall a government organized under constitutional forms bo subverted1' Tlio people will never permit it, and \Uuma chnsetts in the future, as in the pant, will be true to tho futon.
