Tbe people of this city were astounded this morning by in announcement that Mr. Lincoln had started in a special train for Washington, despatches having been re ceived requiring hie presence in that city. Reports are husily circulated that there was a plot to assassinate him while passing through Baltimore, but suoh stories are uot believed. The Baltimore Committee is here, but did not have an interview with Mr. Lincoln. OUR BPECIAL DESPATCH. llARKMHi Rfi, Feb. 2S, 1861. The city was startled just now by a rumor that Mr. Lin eoin had left by a special train. The information was said to have leaked out from Col. Sumner, who was indignant ut this flight, be', was not made public until after the telegraph cfflce closed for the night. Two hours beroro the Hmutd reporter obtained the facts, but was kept locked in a room, unable to use them, until half an hour before this despatch was written. The details of the whole affair wore obtained by him. and even rumor has not hinted them all. In brief, Mr. Iincoto, the President elect, left Iianribburg secretly at si* o'clock last evening, took a special train over tho Pennsylvania Central Railroad to Philadelphia, thence took a special train to Washington, and before this reaches New York will bo, if no accident occurs, safe at the federal capital, and in charge of Gen eral Scott. Tho reason for tnis movement, so extra ordinary and unprecedented, is that Mr. Lincoln s friends believe, from information acquired?I am not permitted to tell how?that if he earned out his pro gramme, and left by spenial train at nine this morning, the tram would either be run off an embankment, blown up by grenades placed bi ueath the track, or some way destroyed, between the Maryland line and Baltimore; or ibat, this failing, Mr. Lincoln would be mobbed and as eaeainafM in llaltimore during bis ride from depot to <epot. How imminent his friends 'J.w.^i.1- thla danger was, may be judged by the fact lhat one of those wno was aware of the plot, but was obliged to go where Mr. Lincoln went, made nis wiU, scaled up his papors, and prepared for sudden death in ease Mr. Lincoln should insist upon going on this morn !Dg. To avoid a demonstration at Baltimore, Mr Wood, who has had charge of the trains, was undetermined last night whether to go via l'biladelphia, to avoid cliange of cars, or to go by tae direct route from Harrisburg, and cross Baltimore in close carriages. He declined tho latter cowso, and in response to a letter from Erastus Corning, saying that the 1'eace Con gress desired Mr. Linooln in Wishing ton as soon as possi ble, bo arranged to arrive several hours before tho time ?et down in the programme. Older beads wero at work, however, and not until Mr. Lincoln had gone was Wood lot into the seoret and bis trouble proven useless. So complete was Wood's mystification, that after Mr. Lincoln left he was bothering himself as to which Baltimore delegation (three aro present) should be received, and wanted to see the President elect about it. Although not divuiged to Mi. Lincoln t;U yesterday, as some say, tho whole plan was arranged days apo. Only three (>ersons were to be let into tka plot, Including Mrs. I lncoln and Mr. Judd, of Illinois. Speeches and receptions were to be kept up meanwhile. Special trains were a> ranged, the telegraph Bile need, the wires to be cut if necessary-, Mr. Lincoln to leave, Mr. Judd to be out of tbe way, Mrs. Lincoln and family to return to Phila delphia. and the denouement here kept back till about eight o clock this morning. Too many vessels were en trusted w m the secret, however. Some were leaky? and it is out. Mr. Lincoln returred from the ceremonies at the State House at three o'clock ycatcrday afternoon. Then the plan was laid before him. Ho is said to have .ndign'.nt!y rejectod it. M>s. 1 incoln begged of him to go. Other persons had to be let tnvo the secret In order io persuadu Mr. Lincoln, among them Governor Curtln. All said go. Onlonei Sumner almost wept with anger at rhls plan?cal'ed it abominable, and said Mr. I. ncoln was a, I,rave as any man, but he had cowardly friends. Mr I. ncoln was a an red that he would cerUinly b? assar mated, perhaps the whole family destroyed, and that an attack woold be made npm Fort ^nmter at th? same time; finally, his friends' pers-ias oos and Mr-. Tin coin s tears induced hiin, who was to be our future lack son, to consent to the arrangement. Mr Lincoln was conducted downstairs, put in a covered carrWge and drawn swiftly to the depot. Fe? saw him depart, and these wore aisured that he had gone to Governor Ciirttn's residence to rest. In tbe evening crowds assembled at the hotel to at tend the reception, but Wood assured tbe company that Mr. T ,neoln was ill, and had gone to bad. Mrs. Lincoln s agitation nearly discovered the whole focret, and nho was obliged to give up the ladies reception, plea t ng ffttu'ue and sickness, the great crowd and the small now of the parlor* Tho crewu gradually dispersed, toe ! wt serenade* aud cheers oled away, and tho fecret, w ? ?a)e gfcw krew It Mrs. Lincoln was In her husbard s room to Hfcswtr accidental or intentional Inquiries. Tneso ' pr. eautiooa were all tbe more nee-isaary as man* Rait trnresns were In town. Only one jwrroi), ?uppeeert to be Mr. ludd, went with Lino in on tuotra.n. Unfortunately, Ool. Sumner bad a fr;end, to *rh >m. 'in able to restrain his Indignation, he told that Mr. Lin- -'n had left town. Another person said that a special train with only one car had left, undercharge of Supenn tendent Lewis, for Philadelphia. Tlien tbe murder wax out. Your reporter was released at half past one, as soon as the secret was public, and immediately called upon Mr. Wood. On the streets aud in barrooms the few people stirring were discussing the plan, somo think*)? H prudent, btft the mvoritv declaring that It was cowardly, and that no harm would have happened if Mr. Lincoln had stayed In Baltimore a week. Mr. Wood was in bed, and being a?ured it was morning arxl the telegraph useless, admitted Mr. Lincoln's flight, con ?rmed pome of tbe details before obtained, but stated that instead of going to 1'blladelphla Mr. Lincoln and the rorty won Id go oo to Washington by the fated nine o'clock train, as previously arranged, tbe train to atop n a lonely part of the city so as to avoid the crowd Your reporter goes on with tho tram, and, If not sufil ciently k ilea to prevent him.fro.a wilting, will te,l you about the utlfcur ? ??

Wb.18,lool I The special train, with Mr., Lincoln and party onboard, left llarrisburg at amis o'clock, M arranged. The party were convoyed to ibe cars fro* U.e hotel in carriages. Vtr> few people were out. The re wore no cbeer?, but dtnuocla'Miu* of Mr. Lincoln's secret departure were deep and unanimous. The republicans needed to feel the most chagrined at the sudden movement. All the party are on the train, though but few think we shall reach Washington without accidents. Colonel Ells worth expects the train will be mobbed at Baltimore. The party i8 arranged aa before, the lan coln family, except Old Abo, in the rear car and the balance of the party, including the reporter., in the front car. Only Mr. Judd and Major 1 anion. of Illinois, are absent Major Lamonwas the only person who went with Mr. Lincoln. I telegraphed Mr. Judd's name by mistake this morn ing Ue went on to Philadelphia in tho regular train, at half-rust two o'clock. Major Lamoo is only a militia offcer. The party don't talk much. Judge Davis said that the telegraph was taken care of last night. The army offi cers are very angry. The republicans on board, some of them editors of leading republican journals, are outra g<:oue. They call it cowardly, and draw a parallel be tween the conduct of Mr. Lincoln and the acti as of tho South Carolinian?, veTy much to the disadvantage of tho former. They say nothing <au e.viuso or justify such 1 conduct. These inen who talk bo are not in want of office. Ill advised, injudicious, indeed every epithet is showered upon the movement. Still Mr. Lin coin is not blamed, but only his advisers. Others make a defence by saying that Mr. Lincolncan do as he pleases, that it is better to be prudent than rash, and that the matter was one of life and death. Mr. Lincoln's disinclination to go is also dwelt upon, as also the refusal of the Baltimore Council to invito him. It is now known, however, that this thing was discussed at Springfield, and came very near being done at Pittsburg on Sunday. Oiuld Mr. \incoln be ignorant of it all this time? It has just been ascertained that the danger to be feared wis not directed at the truin, but that the mob would as Bail ,Mr. Lincoln at Baltimore. Th :r"fore Mrs. Linooln allowed to proceed at Baltimore. train will j Estop in a lonely street, the parties be received in cloa? carriages, and driven by different ways to the other depot. At all the littlo places along tho tout? crowds wero gathered; but the train made no stop till It reached \ork, where two thousand people were gatherod, with a band of music. They could not believe Mr. Linooln was not on board, und offered beta to any amount that he was. In dead silence Bob Lincoln showed himself. A repub lican on the train explained to the crowd that Mr. Lincoln was not invited to go to Baltimore, and resented the slight by passing through secretly, rhis will bo tiio ground taken by those who defend the move. The day is very gloomy and so is the 1 tarty. At York Mr. Wood said to the crowd, "Mr. Lincoln is not on ?ho train. He is suddenly cailcd to Washington. He is very sorry to disappoint you. In the absence of the old man 1 present to you young Bob." At the next important station we passed the train from Baltimore, the passengers cheering. At every sta tion crowds were out. As we crossed the Maryland lino the party bocamo quite jolly, singing the -Star Spangled Banner," with young Lincoln as leader. Two Misses Williams, daugh ters of Senator Williams, are on board, but stop at Balti mwc. _ The republican committee of reception from Baltimore is on the train. It consists of Hou. W. G. Snethcn, Hon. W T Marshall, L. Blunenberg, W. Bell, J. Bishop, W. E. C.lcason, J. M. l'almer and F. 8. Cork ran, the latter on behalf of the Electoral College. Mr. Knethen, in eonversa ti.n with Mr. Wood, said "this was ft shameful way to treat mtn who had risked their lives to vote for Lincoln, and that it would have been perfectly safe for Lincoln to have walked through the city. The movement was a blunder Mr Wood replied, "That the plan was not his; bo had ?(&#<*?'?'*?>? tho Baltimore***, and intended to trust Himself and Mr Lincoln's family among them. ' The committee said that a State* as never so insulted before. There was a momentary stop at Ommtryvillo, where a great crowd wis out, but no cheers. At the next station an old darkey sat on the top of a stepladder, waving a piece of black bunting, to which was p ni t d an American Hag Whether this meant seces sion, or that th? blacks are for I moo, Is doubtful. Udiee, niggers and school children waved their handker chiefs Workmen were out everywhere. ARRIVAL OF THE SUITE AT BALTIMORE. Baltimore, Feb. 23,1801. A crowd '.'locked up all the Calvert street depot, and on the at rival of the tr.*in greeted it with groans, on earn mg that tne report of Mr. Lincoln having stolen a march wan Dot a hoax. . Most ample arrangements had been made here for to -una* tho sale and rospectful transit of Mr. th.ough the city. The police force was all out and fully . quipped, and all good cit.fens w. re anxious that no in dignity should ha\e been manifested. The apprehension entertained was that cortaln disre putable parties, who latoly attached themselves to the rf publican organization here, and who were expected to make a demonstration, would have aroused bad feding iD the mmds of some, and partially caused a disturbance. Otherwise, there was no reason to apprehend anything unpleasant here. THE ARRIVAL OF MR. LINCOLN IN BALTIMORE. EAurmeu, Fob. 23, 1861. Mr. Lincoln arr.ved here at eigbt o'clock, incog., and went direct to Washington. His family and tb? re mainder of his party will arrive at ono o'clock. Much ?-xcltcmeut was occasional by the ruae. THE ARRIVAL OF MR. LINCOLN IN WASHINGTON. OUB SPECIAL DESPATCHES. Washout >*, .lao. 33, M41. Mr. Lincoln urrived here at six o'clock this morning direct from narrisburg, and was mHw4 at tho dep>t by * i.stor Seward and Mr. Wapfcbunio, <f Illinois, and pro (Wli d very quietly to Wiilard s Hot* I. A private letter r c?iv''d here from Mr I incoln InH nigfit announced this cl arge ti his programme He was adviitod by high au thor I lien Here to come tlirourh Baltimore In the night, in urder *? avoid a diOimlty growing np in that city about ?b. should welve hita and h '* l?. should be done. Ho in <ompknicd <m the trip by Mr. I*rnon, of Illinois, and Mr. Allen, of New York. Mr. Lincoln, after soiling sumo rest, t>r''iikfasted pr'vately. .-enator Heward received official intelligence on Thurs day e.enmj, from reliable sources, that a most diabolical plot bud been successfully arranged, on the part of a seciet org .n -uitioii In laliinioru, to uw issiwite tbo I'msi dent elect on bis arrival in ttiat city. Mr. flewnrd com n unseated this lntenig"ne? to it fow yr'vate friends, and it was tietornjicod to aoap*tcb a NfCbSonger at or,or to Philadelphia, informing bim of the fact, and urging turn to tftk' on earlier train, which would '>rlng bim through In tli*' night. Mr. Lincoln said be h;i.l received iutolli gence from Baltimore of a similar n.ituro. A special train was accordingly arranged, and bo departed at once for Washington. It Is positively denied by BaUlmoreans that any such orgasisattai exists, or that any v ?rt -renre would have been made with tbe President's! party. There is little doubt that tbe feeling and sentiment of the people of Bal timore Is very bitter against Mr. Lincoln, so mueb so, in died. that violence might have been attempted. It is rerarded as a very wise move in giving thorn the slip. Mr Lincoln's family, ac omponird by his suite, will reach here this afternoon. A suit of Ave elegantly fur nisbed rooms in the south wst rorne* of Willard's, front ng on Pennsylvania avenue And overlooking the White House, have been set apart tor lYeeident Lincoln and his family. As the news of Mr. Lincoln's sudden and unexpected arrival spread through the city this forenoon, people wondered that it could he pose bi< that Old Abe wu actually in their midst. At eleven o'clock Mr. Lmceln, accompanied by Mr. f. ward, calif it at tfw W tilt-: Heuso anil pad his respects to Mr. Buchanan. The mtervtew was merely one of courtesy, ami not for busmtss. Mr. Buchanan received Mr Lincoln very cordially. Wb? u Mr. Lincoln called upon Mr. Buchanan the Cabi net were in session. The messenger announoed that Mr. f^wird was in the acie room, attended by Mr. I in Colo, the President elect. This was a coup d'eiat. The President whs not aware that Mr. Lincoln ha<l arrived, tor was either member of the Cabinet. Mr. Buchanan proceeded lmmsdAtely to his private reception room, and ?c?n Mr Lincoln and Mr. Seward were Shown in, the latter intrnductrg the former. Mr. Buchanan ruwivud Mr. lincoln very cordially, and a p'.eubant interview was had. Mr. Buchanan wan ani Ioub to know if Mr. Lincoln had a satisfactory reception at H-rrisburg, to which the latter responded that It wai very enthusiastic on tho part of the people, and exceed ingly satlafaetory to him. Mr. Buchanan then invited Mr Lincoln to visit the Cabinet Chamber, which he ac cepted, and was introduced to each member. The inter views were very agreeable. Upon leaving the White House, Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Seward trade a call upon Lieut. General Scott, but the old chief was absent atttniing to his official duties. At three o'clock Uenoral Scott returned Mr. Lincoln's call. He waw warmly greeted by the President elect, who ei pressed to the General -Is thanks for the many marks of attention he had shown him, especially In de tailing an escort from his homo to the capital. General ' Scott expressed his great grat Joation Mr. lincoln's safe arrival, and especially complimented him for choos ing to travel from Harrtsburg unattended by any display, but in a plain democratic way. At four o'clock the Illinois Gong r ess iona>#elegation, without respect of part#, headed by Senator DeiflM, callupon Mr. Lincoln and paid tholr respects. The meeting was leas iformal perhaps than would he the case at the interview with any other delegation, from the fact that they were all friends and acquaintances before. Tho interview between Mr Llnooln and Mr. Douglas was peculiarly pleaeant. ' Among the callers upon Mr. Lincoln this afternoon were th?: venerable Frank Blair and his son, Montgomery Blair. ASSOCIATED PRESS DESPATCH. WJBnn?>Tow, Feb. 23, 1861. Not a little sensation prevailed throughout the city thia morning as soon as it bflCWn? known that Mr. Liaooln had arrived in the early train. It was nniueceasfolly sought to conceal the foci, wpecially from the newspa per press, his presence here being at rtrst communi eafrd to a few political friends in confidence. He was met at the station by several gentlemen of distinction, without any formality, and was immediately driven to WlUard's Hotel. Ho was yesterday advised to come hither without de lay. Preparations had been made to meet him ?t the station this afternoon, and the Mayor of Washington was to make a welcome address, but Mr. Lincoln has thus spoiled the programme. About ten o'clock Mr. Lincoln, accompanied by Mr. Seward, paid his respects to President Buchanan, spending a few minutes in general conver sation Senator Bigler and Representative John Cochrane hap pened to be at the Whi?e ?>uae when he entered, and were accordingly introduced to the President elect. Mr. Lincoln afterwards returned to hie hotel. MR. LINCOLN'S FIRST RECEPTION AT WASHINGTON. Wahiiimitos, Feb. 23,1861. At six o'clock Dr. lMleeton, Secretary of the Peace Congress, presented a communication to Mr- Lincoln, an nouncing that the members of the Congress were anxious to pay their respects to Mr. Lincoln, and requesting the latter to name the time when ho would rocelve them. Mr. Lincoln replied that he would be happy to receive j them at nine o'clock. At seven o'clock Mr Lincoln left his hotel, and proceeded in a carriage to the residence of Mr. Seward, with whom he dined. At ten minutes be fore nine o'clock Mr. Lincoln returned to his hotel, ?nd was received by an enthusiastic crowd, who greeted him as though he was their father and life. Some wero old men, ami s-mo old and some young la dies. Tliey reliectcd the general feeling, that in Mr. Liucoln rests the future hope of the government and tho Mr. Lincrtn passed through t?e 1'ng parlor hall, thronged wtth the eW' and fashion of the national metro polls, shaking hands as fast as he could on bis right and left with ladles and gentkinon, so intensely interested that he forgot even to take his hat off, which was ex cused by a look?r on, who remarked that it was new aud outshined the crowd. At nine oclock, according to previous arrangement, Mr. Lincoln received the Peace Congress The members fusvned in procession in the hall where they meet, and proceeded to the reception parlor; ex-President Tyler, and Governor Chase, of Ohio, led the ran The Utter intriiduced Mr. Tyler. Mr. Lincoln received him w tb all the rcspect due his position The several delegates were then presented to Mr. Lincoln by Governor Chase, in the usual manner. The greatest curiosity was manifested U> witness Mr. Lincoln's llrst reception in Washington. Tho most mar vellous thing that occurred was the manifestation by Mr. Lincoln or a most wonderful memory. It will i be remembered that the Convention is composed of many j men, who, although distinguished in their lime, havo until very lately not been very much known Bach i member was introduced by his last name, but in nine eases out or ten Mr. Lincoln would promptly recall their j entire name, no matter how many initials It contained. In seve ralinstacces he recited the historical reminiscences , or ramilles- In short, he understands the material or the Peace Congress. When the tall General Doniphan, or Missouri, wa? intro duced, Mr. Lincoln bad to look up to catch Doniphan s eye. He immediately Inquired, "Is this Doniphan, who made that splendid march across tho I'lalns, and-swept the swift Camancbes before him?" w ? "1 commanded the expedition across the Plains, modestly responded the General. "Then you have come up to the standapl ol my ex pectation," rejoined Mr. Lincoln. After the reception or the Peace Congress was con eluded, a large number or citnens were presented. Mr 1 incoln was then notltled that the ante rooms and main parlors or the hotel were filled with ladles, who desired to pay their respects, to which the President elect very promptly consented. Tho ladles then passed In review, each being Introduced by the gentleman who accom panted her. Mr. Lincoln underwent the new ordeal with much good humor. At ten o clock Mr. Bucbanai,'s Cabinet called and paid their respects, In response to Mr. Lincoln's roup <r Xat tbe White House this morning. Their reception was very pleasant. It mav be truly said that Mr. Lincoln s first day in Washington as President elect has been a decided sue cess. Pernor rats as well as republicans are pleased wltli him, and the ladies, who thought ho was awkward at first sight, changed their opinion, and cow declare him "a very pleasant, sociablo gentW-man, and not bad look ing by any means.'' Mrs. Lincoln, who arrived with the main body or sfr Lincoln's suite in the evening train, did not receive callers tonight. Many Inquiries were made for her by tbe ladles who paid their p.poets to Mr. Lincoln, but ratlgue from the day's travel was tbe excuse for her non-appearance ACCOUNTS FROM OTHER JOURNALS. ?Hurtling Intelligence?

The Vice President elect, Mr. Hamlin, arrived in this city this afternoon, at feur o'clock, by the cars from Balti more. Mr. Hamlin took quarters at tho Washington House, with hit lady. He was the recipient of many con gratulations, especially among tho ladies, who paid as much attention t? Mm Hamlin u? they did to her distin guished consort. Mr Hamlin says be has nothing to say about national affairs until his superior in office (Mr. Lincoln) arrives, which will he to-morrow. The day has been a gala one fbr the metropolis^ A thousand troops have been on parade, and twenty thou sand people have been out to see them. The word wan given early in the morning that the order for tho parade of the United States troops had been countermanded by the president. Gen. Scott had enunciated the order, and tbe troops were in readiness acccrdingly; but Ins supe rior officer thought it proper, pending existing and proe nartive trouble?, lhat no display of the TorceB at hie ^mani shouM be m*le. *>mo people who desired to tee an exhibition of th^ government troops, were congregated on tho stieets to witness the display , out they were disappointed. The local militia, and the lino the Georgetown commentated for the non appearance of Lncle r*m s fords. There were in line about one thousand troops, and every corps had the American lla? as their ensign. 1 Ater in the day General Scott permitted a few bat^ teries belonging to the people to parade, and it ? proper to say that instead ot their appearance occasioning tiy dtssat if.fae.tion th>- troops were nailed with manilestatiorm of applauso at every point of their progress. Mr. Lincoln can eocae here to morrow without the sliehtcst disturbance, unless tbe ladies overwhelm hiin, for, to''judge rroio the manifestations oo the arrival of the Vice Presidentelect, nobody else will go much out of bis way U, extend unusual civilities He will be received of course, by the city officials, and eeoorto.l u. his ouarters on Iranklio row, a lact that lia? i?een k<pts.

It is pretty certain,unleu be throws his influence against tho plan reported by the committee, that it will be carried by a decisive vote to-night. Gov. Chase, of Ohio, backed by tho ultras from seven States, resisted at every stage of the vote to-day any ac tion by the Convention, and endeavored by every moans in his power to defeat a vote upon the main proposition; but he was voted down by a decided majority of four teen to seven. An adjournment was carried at four o'clock They met again at seven, and aro determined to progs a vote on the main question. It will be carried by a vole of twelve to nine. The I'oace Conference accomplished nothing of import ance to day, although they were in session a long while, did a great deal of talking, and did some voting. The prospect is that they will be in session sometime longer. The attempt of Mr. Stone t > represent Koubus by au thority of the democratic acting Governor of tlu> I ito Territory, was superceded by a despatch from Governor Robinson, of the State of Kansas, announcing the org an i zatkm of the State government, and tho appointment to tho Congress of Mr. Conway, the representative; Mr, "-yycrof Leavenworth; Mr. Kwing and Mr. invention recognised the delegates' rights, mi nulled to seata. ikia bulletin of this evening contains a from Washington, to the effect that In the PeatiMfaftremo Mr. Chase, of Ohio, offered a propo sit ion thai It ta inexpedient to proceed to tho considera tion of the grave matters involved in tho resolutions of Virginia, vatU fell the States participate, and that amplo time u*ay be afforded for deliberation, it is resolved that the Convention adjourn to the 4th of April.
