His course has * trei.gthcaed the republicans in the l'eaee Congress, and may prevent them from agreeing to any amicable settlement. The action of the republicans last night in caucus, on the line of the lixtianapolie speech of the President elect, und the la'.f harangues it the Senate, indicates a v:nr policy on the part of the incoming admin.Oration. These measures will bo frwjed during the next wee'*", and will meet with stubborn ruid determined reslstanoe by the conservative men in Congress.

This coercion programme was carried through the cau cus by radicals engaged in the wnroa Mr. ward, which by the way, is Still kept up undiminished vigor.

MP. LINCOLN AND THE OFFf< E HOLDERS. Wisiamiui, Feb. 10,1B61. It is astounding to whit aa extent the office holding democrats in the various departments of this City are libetalizing their opinions towards the republicans as the rroeident elect approaches the f?-deral capital.

It dors not ae?m pustblo that h man (? cupying bit poxltlin ran really be ignorant of the state of the < 0'intry, and especially that of largo cities like Kow York and to convince him that some body Is suffering and consequently hurt, I would suggest that i nroeesfiiisi be formed of thoee who are really out of >mplojment, auJ are suffering from lie political atate of the country, and file past his hotel that he may con vince liimielf, fr<?m ocular demonstration, of th?< absurd ity of bis remarks.

It requires, however, no very profound observation to perceivo that thov gen tlemen are all to be left in the lurch; that combinations are foruung of which these gentlemen do not dream, auJ I may at: well say openly and with authority that they will oco and all be thrown overboard, and that tho re public w ill not be permitted to go to ra;k and ruin at the behest of the Massachusetts s.Jiool or politicians. It is from a sincere desire to be o" service to the community at large, and to correct into which Northern newspapers, for want of accurate infor mation. have fallen, that r indite this letter. I.ct me be gin, then, by raying, that thoro is no prospect of a mili tary despotism; that force will not be employed to grati fy Messrs.

Squall followed squall; : Clancy Jonets actod as go between until all wag settled, and thou a patchwork was ma Jo up, of which the Pre ''dent was the very last man to comprehend the true signification. It was a petty revolution, which establish cd upon apparently solid foundations the jiowcr of the Southern rights Union dynasty, and, had It no', been for the wretchedly corrupt personal and political character of many of its members it would have accomplished the ob jects it had in view. At any rate, it was an anti-Bucha nan remedy for the evils which were apprehended from Buchanan ism. If it failed to effect its objects, it was not lor want or sagacity ou the part of Slidoll, Davis, Beuja min, ?win, Hunter. Green. Yulee and others, who c>n cocted tho conspiracy. It broke down completoly from causes which are so pfftnnv that tho "wayfaring raw I though a fool" cannot fall to see through tbi-m.

Uionipson'9 name wan connoted with all sorts of flre-eatlng, section litrlguee. All three catered to anti national prejudices, and acted in opposition to the general welfare and peace With the shortsightedness of demagoguos, they sacrificed tho fu turs to the present and proved penny wise and pound foolish. Ho Buchanan had to put Barnburner Pi* into the Treasury Department to got monoy Holt luto the War Department, on a vaguo reputation he had obtained in the patentj,Ottlce for honesty, and to take Stanton and King, because nobody could talk against men or whom they know nothing one way or the other. It has l>ccn expediency work all through. No general principles have been consulted, and no h gher aim baa been at tended to than tho bread and butter cxigenclos oi tho hour. Is it surprising, under auch circumstances, tiiU Mr. toward, with the, sagacity and diplomatic fore, sight which distinguish him, should have included in his plans for the ruture, all or tho elements at hand to assist in carryiLg out his own ultimate viows t Under the leadership of Mr. Reward, Mr. Lincoln has con sidered it or no Importance to fill up his Cabinet until his arrival at Washington, and I am able to say that he con template making no appointments beyond Reward and Hate* for the prevent. M would be folly for him to do ao. Tho understanding between Dlx and Seward ? com plete, and it Is fully determined that the former shal. retain his place, " until his succesror can be appointed which moans for an indollnito period. Wanton, King and Holt will also be requested to remain, without any openly declared understanding. In a word old parties are doad, and out of their ruins will arise tho edifice which the Premier of Mr. Lincoln foretold, when he declared that " future times would applaud tho magnanimity of the sacrifices that would be mado by the present generation to save tho Union, beyond any that wero made by thoac who laid the foundations of the republic." Ho devyt cot | hesitate to tell his friend* that tho Chicago plationn is obsolete; that it has served the purpoee for which It was created: and Is to bo regarded as among the fomits or fifty years ago. The position In which he Is placed is, however, most dilllcult. It requires a degree of craft, management and subtlety, in which, excepting Mr. Thurlow Weed, he has no other man In the countrv able te advise him. It is to the credit of Mr. Lincoln that he appreciates the arduous nature of the task his Premier has before him. He stated, lately, at Springfield, that he did not pretend .to meddle with the squabble with s?oeseioni?t?, but should "le-ive it en tirely to toward." Mr Seward then, and Mr. Dlx, whose barnburner an* t"Clients, and that pliable readiness for a political com bination, which has always distinguished tho followers or Mr Van Buren, admirably fit bint to strike hands for the r"' mat ion or a re Union party, wllljho th' llfoand strength or Mr. Lincoln's administration Messrs Stanton, Holt and King will co-operate with theiu with the heartine?sand hnoesty that are to be expected from comparatively ob "cure ofNcisis.anxious to retain power( mm conscious or the ability and will to serve the country. The right hand ot Seward is the Hooat- will be Cameron, who has aires %r taken a bold, initiatory stand, In behair orawl?e,con dilatory policy towards tho South, and will rally I'enn syhanla to the canae of nationality, Jnst as Mr. Sew*rd will inevitably do New York. Under tueh leadership, oin anything be more certain that every honest upright cltlion throughout the land will ralty to the support oT measures which they may suggest, and which, It It already marked out, will have for their starting point propositions simi lar to tho Crittenden amendments, or the more accu rately framed measure suggested to the Bonier Con rerence by Mr. Gnthrle of Kentucky.
