Wa?nxo*on, March 21, 1801. the failure to evacua'e Fort Sumter yesterday, aa aatt ?plated, is attributed in administration circles to technl eal reasons merely. It it now said the evacuation will takeipiace immediately. A crisis will soon arrive. Mr. Seward has been in favor ?f the evacuation of For*. Sumter. After a great amount ef labor, he indnoed Gen. Scott to issue to the Cabinet an opinion that the fort ootid not be reinforced. This opi nion influenced the other members or the Cabinet, with ?ne exception, who viewed the evacuation as a military necessity. Under this influence the Cabinet were induced to submit their opinions to Mr. Lincoln, who has not yet deoided whether to order Major Anderson to evacuate Fort Sumptcr or not. It is most likely that he will issue the order, inasmuch ta the matter has gone so far. But M ib useless to dUguiee the fact-1 that nothing but tho exertions of Mr. Seward has brought about this state of things. Mr. Lincoln is puzzled to understand the strange inconsistency In the despatches of M^jor Anderson before Un inauguration and after. Before It he had plenty of provisions ?nd men; after, ho was without provisions, could make no tight without more men, and it would be impossible to get either without employing twonty thousand men for hud service and a lieet of wai vessels. These two st?te. nsanta have been much discussed, and are yetthedltC enlt point to surmount. It would b useless to disguise the fact that it is whispered in exocutlvo circles thu Ma jor Anderson is suspected of complicity with the seces sionists of South Carolina. A statement that no reinforcements have been sent South, and that no orders have been issued to reinforce Fort Pickens, Is considered reliable. BEPORrS OF APPREHENDED COLLISION AT FORT PICKENS. WihHWt.rox, March 21, 1861. There are reports again In. osculation today of immi nent danger of collhfton at Fort Pickens. It is asserted, h i high quarters, that reinforcements have been sent to Pecsaaoia. The administration state to the contrary. lite Southern Commissioners discredit utterly the idea of troope being sent South, or that the federal govern ment medidate at present any hostile demonstration at the South. They give out that they have reasons of their own for this belief, which to the si are satisfactory. They have so advised the government at Montgomery. If the government violate their pledgee the country will be the judge as to who ts to blame. .IMPORTANT OPINION OF THE ATTORNEY GENERAL. W.tsaiaorojr, March 21, 18fli. 5he Attorney Ceneral, it is understood, has given a wejtten opinion to the President that under the 89th seo tioc of tbe law of ?799 it will he Impossible to collect any iVnane in any of the seceded States. That section de clare* that tbe trlqj of any faot regarding a violation o' the saasnue laws shall be within the Judicial district in trhieh the ?? inwwre *o Mm, aM nn United States courts, Judges or marshals in any of the ports of the seceded Stales, there are no means, under exiting laws, of enforcing any penalties for violation o ifce revenue, even if it were practicable to appoint a col lector to r? on shlpbaard within four miles of the port This cood.tlon of the law has unwillingly forced the President to determine upon call Jig an extra session of Oangrefts immediately.

The New York city appo.&tnients are ander coot iilera tlon. A large cumber < f applicants, therefore, are In Washing ton. Notwithstanding there is a powerful effort being made to induce the President to make the New York appoint ments, especially the Marshal and District A i to .-coy, still they are kept back. There is a hitch somewhere. He intimated pretty plainly to-day to a gentleman who called to ate alj^ut them, that -certain men had misre presented matters, and that he had been mlsftpd In re gard to certain men who were prominent for petitions. The New York appointment* will be made to morrow or nect day. Mr. Baiwey will b> Collector. Now that Gen. Nye is out of the ring for Marshal, Mr. Weed insists that Alexander H. Schultz, his right bower, shall have the place, in order to punish Mudgett, another candidate, who, as president of the Brooklyn Rocky Moun tain Club, signed a r or tea of resolutions adopted by thatas social) on last fall, denouncing Weed's lobby jebs. Shultz's appointment was to be a sort ef political coup d'etat, but the President discovered the plot, and exploded it, and now Schultz will not be marshal. Mr. Dart, efSt. I-awrenco county, bas a good show for Attorney of the Northern District of New York. Gen. Nye's nomination as Governor of Nevadi Terri tory is very much liked. Eo accepts the position, and will make his mark with i&o people. Mo everybody says who know him. The Committee on Territories in the Se nate unanimously report**! the nomination back to day, and to morrow be wil; be confirmed. " ma caufoimia afpoivtioctts. The light over the California appointments is becoming very animated. The issue is now narrowed down to the two wings ? the radical and conservative republicans. Should the former succeed, it is alleged that they will destroy the party in the State, as they are in a small mtno rity, confined only to flan Francisco, while the latter are dominant throughout the State. Mr. IJncoln understands the matter, and will take the advice of Senator Baker, who is a disinterested party. General lane left WashJ^ton to clay for New York, to take passage for the Pacfclc. thc rici.untxj'HLt (ounaroiMHrr.

The present Secretary is far from being cut fait in i aval matters. There are to be several changes Id the bureaus of tbe Navy Depar ment. Tbe present occupants must give way to nor hands. This announcement has caused quite a flutter among those who supposed they had a life estate In this ancient and dilapidated arm of the service. Moses H. Grinnell and Mr. Warren have arrived. They are tcro for the purpose of learning, If possible, the policy of this administration? whether it is peace or war. This unsettled state of matters Is regarded as worse honopen war. ALARM OP THE PllOTBrTKKU-trH. The protectionists here are greatly alarmed at the pros pect of the meeting of Congress, as it Is believed one of Its first acts will be the repeal of the new tariff. Secre tary Chase does not hesitate to say he will do every' thing in his power to have It repealed. Mr. Chase doclared to a prominent gentleman to-day that Mr. Barney should have tbe New York Cik torn House. Nye says he prefers the Territorial Governorship to the New Toiit MarshaJshlp, as the latter ofllce la only worth about |3,600 a year, and vast responsibility, whilst ss Governor of Nevada he can save newly all the salary, as it or?ts nothing to live oat there, and he can oome back as United .states Senator with an Immense bill for mileage. The New York Marahalshlp, according to official returns, is less than H ,000 a year. Rtftus WHKMI OP OCR RAILWAY STWItll.

Tbe object of the Baron's visit to tb.s country Is to spend alx months In tbe c ireful study of the American railroad system, for th'' purpose if reporting to his government, with a view to building very extensive railroad works throughout the Southern and Western part of the emp'.re.

THE SPRING FASHIONS. OpeatMg Day of tike Season. J Yertcrday was set apart by Ibe mod let's of N'ew York ' for the opening of th? spriag fash'ona. and It vu about tho worst, for the purpoee thai could have boqa se lected from the *hele calendar. The 21st of March It the ' culminating point of the spring optinei, and the <b*r?es arc three to tne against favorable weather. Tbe loaders ' of fa.-ihion ought to be posted up on this matter, and might study the laws of nuteorok try with profit and advantage. One week earlier cr later would answer just as well, and, considered with regard to the interests of thoae oonverned, would, we have no doubt, do much bolter In a pecu niary paint of view. With fair weather, the opening would hare been more successful tbau the depresse-l condition of bu?tnetM would lead one to expect, although thore has been a large falling oil' in the demand this year as compared with former periods. The crista which affects all > ?? made do exception in the m of the dealers la f shii. f, who hare lost a great number of their Southern customers. Wo .are heard of some Instance* of their bills having beeu pretested; but the debta an regarded as perfectly good, and tha < -editors are eonndent that thoy w 1)1 be collected whon time* be come better. Whether their cvtomers will return it> another aflktr; hut as New Vofo. is to the New Worl i what Paris Is to iXieOld, <t is hardly probable that the Southerners will erer zaore its claims in this particular, by eetabtishlng a centre of fashion among tbomst ?ves. No matter what politicians may do, no matter how many confederacies the Union may he fpll'. into, the Empire City will alwujs hold its place, and tho milliner* and modistes of the South will lock t? ours for tbe lat?et styles of boncets and the newest novelties In drees.

The only visiters inspecting the articles on exhibition yesterday at the various establishments on Broadway and oil. er thoroughfares were those frou the country, who came to Now York for the express purpose of pur chasing, and for whom tne weather had no ter rors. The necessities of business compelled their attendance, and we presume they bought as much as they would had the equinoxlal storm been postponed for a week; and had Broadway glittered In all the refulgence of a brilliant opening day, w 1th fine weather overhead and that other essential for outdoor exercitc ? clean streets? -the different exhibition rooms would be as crowded as if the Union were flourish ing In all IU tntogrlty and a Southern confederacy had never existed.

One of those important revolutions which take place sometimes tn the empire of Fasbicn, as welt as in the realm of any other potentate, has sprung upon us. It is no trifling innovation, no slight alteration, no inconside rable addition, but a radical, fundamental change, rho foil ikirt whl3h the present generation so much afleoted has been repudiated, and in Its place we have the quaint old fasbiomd gored skirt of our grandmothers and gnat grandmothers. The premonitory symptom* or this change have beon apparent to the obaerv lug philosophic eve in the gwrcd outer garments in whe n ladies have perambulated Broadway for some nine past. Ilio mera.1 1st and the politician may both deduce a useful iesnou fr<m this tashlonable revolution; and it Is this; that while the lesser lights of fashion were trifling away their time and distracting public attention, be tween the ndmisaibiiity of beita, waists and pointed '*?wts, flowing sleeves or tight sleeves, the real po nt of danger was overlooked, and their insignid<?nt I ctl sliyive ard waist squabbles were overwhelmed in the general cata clysm which has fallen up>n ui. sJo even chr.ngee in dress may " i?Il>' a moral " But we do not hesitate to ray that, like all Reailble, practical people, we give in our adh-alon to Uie powers that be. and we venture to assert that the skirts will, when they become, as it were, naturalized am mg us, be very popular witn New York ladles. Toe >iuaiut littlo pockets which were especially potn:ed<out to us la Taylor's id the iittlLg receptacle lor the sLsplay of a banJBomohanok'rcbief, used in the times Of our vene rated grand mothers aforesaid, carry the "open se same'' to many a closet rich in preserves and sweet meats. and many a bureau well sucked w?;ih household linen, but such vulgar things as keys coulrt sever bo ;ia soeiated with these dainty little |?ocke:s. rUey are too shallow, too super ilcial ? they lick tho depth, the profundity, the liberal, hospitable look that was t>o characteristic of those receptacles of the <lames of ancient days. As to material* ibey coniBtoftheusial summer styles, O'gandiee, pineapple lilkn, barogea, grenadines, rummer silks, poplins, musliiis and a host of mixed fabrics suitable tor warm weather Dark eoloied, heavy alike sro not out of place as yet, tfor will they bo for the next mouth; but the majority of silks on exhibi tion are. of course, cbos?n with reference to the coming season, and cotsist of all those gay, brif ht colors which : we associate so naturally with sunny skies and green ! tields For outer garments we have rich, heavy rep silk or light cloth cl' aks for spring wtftur, and tor sum ; mer we have lace mantillas and blatj; suk pardee-iis. > We have alto tees some light gauxj' looking shawls, | that would be very desirable for warm weather; they are of all colors, and ombroldered in staall liomiusts, the I colors contrasting prettily with the: self color of the shawl. But leaving generalities a>, we ah ill give our lady readers ?<me interesting details on the present style In whi<-h dreaaos are ma te, aa d to which all well regulated minds must yield imp.icit i>|?d'-noe It :s but tittifcg tbat tho skirt, whi< b has eiUtfted th e important revolution , shoulu take the pat. Thai efore we shall com mence with THK SKIRTS. The skirt is worn as long aa ever, I ratling a little In tne back, and very full at the bottom , whore .t measaroa seven yards in width. The skirt Is gored, and each gore is piped, generally with some color that contrasts tiste fully with the dreaa, or if It be a ?g :rel silk, th#pro vailing color of the patten Is used tor pip ng 5 line of thele skirts are male with flo-ncs )ilB?st to tbo waist, others with alternate folds and ttoutctm; hut it ;? gen > pgty i? ciOil Usst MsMM tiiilptui are th **> h? ve three or four small flounces, or ruih'jr frilM, a < ovcJ the extreme - n-J of the skirt this permits the graceful > weep of tho skirts to he plainly diatmgulshwl , and if the gores are piped with comraatiog col irn, the gay <l!-,vr aity is cot ooncea'ed.

There i* still another way of trimming the sxirt wtacli we must not omtt to mention, and that Is, that the ti xaio ing it carried op tho gores, thus dev eloping another w ty ot nisiioongvif the maf-rial, which appear* to tie t ie deatderatu n of the present This style offers tie curtty that the hoop aklrtw wi l still bo indispensable, f ir the gored skirt requiroa a kind of frame to sho* im proportion!. TTIK C0H8A0R. The cottage may be considered aa a kin l of append ige i to the kirt, being frequei tly cut out with it in the one | piece.
