In the evening he had an informal recep tion at bin hotel. Mr. Lincoln was occupied during a portion of the day in perfecting his in augural address. The rumors respecting Mr. Lin coin's Cabinet are as plentiful as u^ual on the eve of a uew administration.

General Linares had been overthrown in Bolivia; and in New Granada Mosquera had i-*ucd his ultimatum, calling on Ospiutt to lay down hw arms, at the name time demanding the release of all prisoners. The New Granadian States had formed themselves into a league known an the New Granadian United States. The news from California is unimportant, having been prin cipally anticipated by the overland mail. A very destructive fire occurred in Honolulu, Sandwich Inland*, on the 29th ult., destroying $65,000 worth of property. We have newx from Belize, Honduras, to the 11th iu-t. The legislature had met, and the ses sion was likely to be a protracted one. The finan cial return* allowed a surplus revenue over expen ditures of $30,000. The anticipated refusal of the people of the Bay Islands to be annexed to the re public of Honduras was still exercising the pnblic mind. Some excitement had been caused by the murder of au American citizen a photographic artist. Several vessels had been lost, and trade win reported dull. The Naval Court Martial reassembled yesterday at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, all the members bo mg pre-H nt. Lieut. Bnrbot read his defence, to the effect that the raiding of the pistol aguinst Bennett was merely for the purpose of intimidat ing a mutinously inclined person of great physical power: that the discharge thereof was purely ac cidental, as borne out by the nature of the wound, which would have been more .serious hud the firing been intentional, as the distance between the wounded man and the defendant was trifling. The Court then went into secret session to consider the case. The ( onrt Martial in the case of Col. Corcorau convened yesterday at the Division Armory, but owing to the absence of the accused was adjourn ed until Thursday next, at three P. M. Tbe Board of Aldermen did not orgauue last evening, a quorum not being present. The Hoard of Councilmcn met la it evening and transacted a good deal of routine business. The Committee on Railroads presented a report in favor of compelling the Hudson liiver Itailroad Company to remove the rails and switches con necting with the main track at Hudson and Worth street", and also prohibiting the company from loading or unloading their cars between Chambers and Canal streets.

The final argument on the bond* of l aw and C?nov< r. as siireth s for ex-Postmaster Fowler, commenced ye-u rday before Judge Bctt* in the I nited States district Court. The plaintiffs contend f..r a final .judgment in their favor upon the facts a found by the jury. The government claims that a linal judgment on the facta win not v arrauted bv law. The argument is still pending. The summit g up in the case of James Shepherd, whofc thirl trial for arson in the first degree was commenccd in the Court of General Sessions on Wednesday, to ?k place yesterday. The case was given to the jury in the afternoon, and as there was no prosj. t of their agreeing upon a verdict at a late hour :a?t cveninp, they were l?oked op for the night.

Hale, Sun r limit'/, 1'oolittle and, possibly, <- b *- w ill 'hrew their weight into the oppo site -?< t.ie; but the impression prevails that they will be i brown overboard, and that not one coercionUt will be offered a place in the in coming government Cham; ought to be kept cut, a* a turbulent spirit, who would paralyse the action of hie colleagues by his personal am bition. ii. is probable that the completion of the Cabinet hat been purposely postponed, until the present time, partly by a dee ire ou the part of Mr. Lincoln to gain time to feel the puke of the country, and perhaps, also, through the secret agency of Mr. Seward, who has, meanwhile, been marking out the course he in tends, as Premier, to dictate and to pursue. While the President elect has remained, at his home in Springfield, in profound ignorance of the bearings of parties, and has cherished the abBurd hope that the Chicago platform might prove an ample guide lor his future conduct, his sagacious, farsighted Secretary of State has sounded, as with a plummet, the most hidden depth* of popular sentiment, and has conceived of a line of policy, worthy of his experience, by which he hopes to unite in one national party all of the conservative and Union ele ments in the Northern, and in the border slave States. It has been evident, since the middle of November last, from the tone of the ar ticles which began at that time to appear in the Albany Keen ing Journal, and from the speeches subsequently delivered by Mr. Seward, in the Senate of the United States, that both himself and Mr. Weed had become persuaded that there was no immediate prospect of satisfying the demands of the cotton States; but that hopes for the future, and efforts at concilia tion. must be directed to the border slavehold ing and non-slaveholding members of the con federacy, in which the Union element strongly prevails. When peace in these shall have been consolidated, a chance might exist, after the lapse of "one, two, or three years," of such a reaction in the seceding States, as should pave the way for reunion, and the reconstruction of the republic on more solid foundations than had existed before, llcnoe it has been, that Mr. Seward has so carefully fostered the Peace Conferences, and has intimated a belief that out of their proceedings might spring the germ of u settlement, in the course of time, of our national difficulties. He sees that, the balance of power in the country, is held by Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky. Tennessee and Missouri on the one hand, and New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey on the other, and that any platform upon which these eight States may agree, will inevitably be adopted by the masses of the people, and be paramount in it* control over coming events. The Chicago platform is obso lete, and it* consignment to oblivion has in volved the destruction of the republican party. The democratic party has been waiting for its coup ilc <jract for over three months. Mr. Seward sees, in this favorable conjuncture of events, amidst the wranglings of fo -.-il^ and dihorgnuiwrs, the fairest prospect of taking the initiative in such a Union compromise nun emenl, as the Southern border State* citn rally to; which can command the support of five-sixths of the people of tho North; and hohl the future destinies of the nation in its band. I nder such circnmstances, Mr. Lincoln has been most anxiously expected at Washington. The South, for the first time in seventy years is divided. The border States are as desirous of remaining within the Union, as tho seceding State- have shown themselves to withdraw from it. The Peace Conferences have brought their proceedings down to a point where Mr. Si-ward finds it out of his competence to net or advise alone, and where the word of the incoming President himself is needed to sustain the fabric whieh his Premier has with such painstaking created. He finds himself bo.-et with ii monstrances, and every effort is being made to surround him with men who will compel hiin to undo what has been done. The Feseenden school of Massachusetts abolitionists press hard upon him. They i< H bun that it is hi- bouuden duty to " \ indicate the dignity ol the American llag"~ that is to deluge the land in blood. If they caa, they will drive Mr. Seward, Mr. Cameron, and all conservative men from his counsels. Failing in this, they will seek to compel him to renew the error o? Mr. Pierce, by putting in hi.- Cabinet such a man ah Chase of Ohio, from whose grasping selfish ness and energetic doggedness they may hope that the counsels of the Premier will at least be paralyzed. It is from the-e elements that Mr. I.iucoln hus to choose?whether, intact, he will cling to the Chicago platform: perish himself, and ruin the nation; or whether by associating to Mr. Seward individuals of a similar stamp, he will avert fat t her di-aster, and pave the way for the adoption of amendments to the constitution which shall satisfy the South, and effect a reconstruction of the Union. Mr. Lincoln, by follow ing the counsels of Mr Seward, and adopting the suggestions of the Peace Conferences, will find himself in a similar position to that of Mr. Pierce in 1852, with the balance of power in the North in his han Is. Mr. l'b rce made the sad mistake, however, ol forming his Cabinet from opposite extremes ot opinion and policy. Should the President elect pursue a like course, it would result in incal culable mischief, lie should surround himself by statesmen who are all moderate and conser vative. He should make war, from the very out set. against the ultras ot iiisp.irty, and m ike it his chief aim to rally to his suppoit tho Union strength of the herder Stah s. This will put an end to the democratic party, an I reduce funa tical abolitionists to the position o' an exhaust ed fanatical taction, which can never do haim with it- poisonous fangs again. There will be a great outcry.of Coui.-e; but it will be aery of de-pair, at which good men w ill rejoice; it will < i.d speedily; and the result will be the preser vation of peace and the salratioo ef the re public. Hah Awmk to Mr. Limoi,n. Whoever ad vised Mr. Lincoln to make a tour of the differ ent towns on It's way to Washington, with a view of cresting popularity for himself, made an egregious blander, ills speeches have been almost as unfortunate as those of Central Hcott. m the Presidential campaign of 1851; and, il we are to believe the republican jour nals, the r< suit of tlie whole was almost assassi nation, and certainly u rnoet precipitate flight The n-jmbllci-ns sometime# fall back apon Jef ferson for doubtful support. What do they ifciuk of the following sentiment of the author ?,f the Declaration of Independence? "! coafcaa <f>ut I am not reconciled to the idea of a Chief Magistrate paruding himself through the several Statw as an object of public ga*>, and in qiioet of public applauBO, w hich, to be valuable, should be purely voluntary. I had rather acquire bilent good will by a faithful discharge of my tlutk'fc than owe expressions of it to my puttiug myself in the way of receiving them." Tbo Terrible Plot ?o the Preal <1. nt JC1 t*i o* Hl< W?jr from H?rrl?burg to WwhlDRtOB. History records many terrible conspiracies to assassinate the rulers of great nations; but we have it on the highest authority?the black republican organs that the plot to cut off the President elect on his way from Harrisburg to Washington exceeds them all in atrocity. Ao coiding to some of the republican journal*, which we suppose ought to know lhe 1 at of the name** the WHU^iratort preaentoi a mc*t a. ttinlihag urray of person* high in southern ooofl den< e anil some whose fame Is not to this country oJ ws. SiAtwsmen laid the pi >u, bankers endorsed It, and adven tuicrs were to carry it into < duct. We are told that the idea was? To throw the cars from ths road at aome P1*? ^ they would ru?h down a ateep embankment and destroy T.moment the lives of a.1 on board. fiiliuro of tbia prefect. their plan was to surround the ear riige on the way from dep<>t U) iepot, in Baltimore, and ayaesinate him with Cagger or pistol shot. We learn from another republican organ that at least a hundred desperate secessionists had severalty threatened to take his lifcj and nothing, therefore, could have saved him from the knife, the pistol or the hand grenades of the bravo, except his sudden flight incog from the capital of Pennsylvania to the federal capital, enveloped in the Scotch cap of the Camorous and that military cloak?that very long military cloak-which, as Abo Lincoln to very tall and Colonel Sumner somewhat short, niubt have been sent on for the occasion from

Washington by General Scott; for what but the mantle of the old hero of Queenatown and Lundy's Lane could serve as an wgls of protec tion to the lengthy proportions of Abraham Lincoln in this direful peril? A traitorous conspiracy was set on foot to make away with Alexander the Great in the heyday of his conquests, or at least his adhe rents thought there was; a plot was success fully carried out to the death against Julius Ca;sar: there wore several plots to assassinate the first Napoleon, and King James aud his whole Parliament were going to be blown to heaven, or somewhere else, by that terrible old bCCCBsloniet, Gny Fawkes; but all these conspi tacies were nothing compared to the plot ot those bloody banker/ these awful persons "h'gh in Southern confidence." and these van guiiiary secessionists, to murdor Mr. Lin coln on his journey through Maryland. Some people laugh ut this affhir, and think it all a joke. Indeed, there are even those who think it was a praeticnl joke of Old Abe him self, who has been all his life engaged in joking; but there is no question about the fact that it is no joke at all, but a very serious reality; for have wo not the authority of the republican journals for its voracity ?? and they muBt know their own business best. Hut there is something else in connection with this business which the republican jour nals have not published, and that is, that tliey know of a still worse conspiracy which exists in W ashing ton to blow up the whole Capitol during (he inauguration next Monday, ami everybody in it, inoluding both President and Vice President, thus getting rid of tho latter official also. Therefore, we advise tho ladies and other timid persons to keep away from tho ceremony, and indeed to clear out ol the hotels at once, and abandon W ashington altogether. The bo^t w ay. however, to ward off this terrible tragedy would be for Congress to pass u law without delay removing the capital and the in auguration ceremonies to New ^ ork. The President elect will be perfectly safe here. We will inaugurate him in magnificent stylo At the Academy of Music, and will guarantee him against all plots and conspiracies. He may leave his Scotch cap and Umg military cloak behind him in Washington, for ho will have no need of disguise in Xe* York. "Tin: Rkiun ok RnrruNm.^?Under this caption wo find a leader in the New York Tribune, which no doubt wan suggested by the "lieign of Terror'" in which the French Revo lution ended, and which the Tribune and kin dred journals are so desirous to Inungnrato in the United States. The chief organ of the re publican*, who ought to bo in the secret, is at a loss to decide whether Mr. Lincoln was to be taken off by "wcret assassination or public murder." The proof is therefore yot wanting that there was any intention to assassinate Mr. Lincoln, and the discovery of a plot if but the finding of a mare's nest As to Mr. Van Wyck. who was out very late al night, there Is no evidence that the attack on him had any connection with political causes. The ruffian < may have been robbers, or they may belong to that rowdy class which are to be found in most large cities. and tome of whom, when drunk, would not desire better sport than beating the lin-t person thoy met, totally regardless of his politics or any such consideration. Washington is a siavfholdlng city, and as the Tribune remarks that "one sec tion of this country w only semi-civili/.od" meaning the slaveholding .Southern ucction then would it not be better that the inaugura te n should take place in a Northern free city. New York, and would it not be better, for the i-amo reason, to make New York the seat of government in future? If Washington be as bad as it is represented, the new President would net be safe without a body guard of a hundred thousand men about him: and as for Northern Congressmen, there would be no safe ty for them at all. Let the whole government come at once. FnucM Kennedy will take pood caro of it. lie is the man to "execute the laws." An OPTORTtKTTT O.sri: Lo-T, Nm h: to iik Kj.rAit K.u. In reference to the alleged con spiracy to a*M?*inate the President elect, the New York 7VihufW says: "Mr. Lincoln may live a hundred years without finding another so good a chance to die!" What a misfortune to Abraham Lincoln and the republican cause. We have no doubt the 7Whu?' is sincerely sorry at his escape from martyrdom: and had he died, that journal would have rejoiced, as it did when John Itrown \\m enrolled among "the noble army of martyrs.'' The "good chance" Mr. Lincoln has lost may never fall in his way again, if ho were to live as long as Old Parr. How true is the familiar proverb "An oppor tunity once lost can never be recalled." Mr. Lincoln, with a most obtuse perception of the glory that awaited him, did not "take fortune at the flood." Some are born to greatness, seme acbit-ve greatness, and some bare great ness thrust upon them. In his nomination end his election Mr. Lincoln had greatness unexpectedly thrust upon him, and he has ac cepted his fortune in both cases.
