MKf Mann, one of the Commissioners appointed by President Davis to visit Europe, arrived hare to-day. JJhtra at Montgomery, he states, are progressing satis factorily. No apprehensions are entertained of any hos tilities, they feeling perfectly sure and able, however, if Attacked, to defend themselves. They have no doubt of ? speedy recognition by foreign Powers. Arrangements have been made to take the entire loan. They are cheer fcl and oonfldent of the future. tte object of Colonel Mann's visit here Is to oonfer with friends respecting affairs between the two governments. He remain only a few days, and then depart for Burope. Colonel Mann has assurances from the directors, that the Great Eastern will arrive from 1st to tbe 10th of April at Hampton Roads. She will avail herself of the Southern tariff by landing coastwise at Charleston, and unload into tugs off harbor. She will then proceed to Norfolk, and take In cargo for Liverpool. THE REPLY OF THE ADMINISTRATION TO THE SOUTHERN COMMISSIONERS. WisHiNoia*, March 22, 1841. It is understood that the administration will reply to the Commissioners, in a few days, stating that they have no power to treat with them; that they can only regard them as agents of a dissatisfied people; hut that, unwilling to lake the responsibility of deciding finally on the propo sitions, they will refer them to next meeting of Congress, protesting against any intention, in so doing, of reoognia lag them la any sense sa ambassadors. In which event, the instructions of the Commissioners are not under stood to contemplate an abrupt withdrawal from Waahiagton; but, on the contrary, it is more than probable they will await the action of Congrees. The fact that the Commissioners are engaged in selecting a house confirms this supposition. The CABINET AND THE QUESTION OF PEACE OR WAR. WasHniGTo*, March 22, 1891. It has leaked out, through semi-official channels, that Ike administration is, and has been for seme days, oc cupied in arranging or devising some plan whereby a so lution of the dlfficultiea impending over the country mty he solved without resort to arms. It was for this pur pose, it is said, that an armiatice of ten days or two weeks was asked for and assented to by the Commla S toners from the Confederate States. It is extremely problematioal whether the administra tion will be able to accomplish anything tangible. Thero are some impracticable men in the Cabinet, who hold to the doctrine enunolatod by Seuator CSuadler, that a little blood lei ting Is tho only ofloctual method of settling the difficulties which menace the country. There are others, however, In the Cabinet, who take a vastly different view of affairs. Both Mr. Seward and Mr. Chase do not hesitate to state that tbe more practicable way would bo forpeaceabls separation. They believe such a solution preferable, far moro so, than one ?f force. This Is the question that occupies the attention of tbe administration. They cannot postpone it much longer. Hie time Is nearly up when they are to render a decision. Tbe Confederate States are watching the issue, and arc desirous to know whether it Is to be peace or war. Vir ginia and the other border States are anxiously watching tho course of events. The rumors of the non evacuation of Fort Sumter are Supposed to be put forth for political efl'ect. It is posi tively certain that it will be abandoned speedily. It la equally certain that Fort Pickens will not be reinforced. All the signs are favorable to a peaceful solution. THE NEW TARIFF. WORSE COMPLICATIONS THAN KVBR ?

As numerous inquiiies htve been made respecting various provisions of the Tariff act of March 2, 1801, It is deemed proper to state, for yocr information and govern ment, as well as the information of others concerned, the views in part entertained by this department on the ?abject. All questions of liability to doty, or exemption there frcm, of merchandise imported under the provisions of the new tariff, and questions as to the rates of duty there - an, will be determined in accordiAce with the provisions c i the fifth hoc t ion of the Tariff act of 1867, which section will, In the opinion of this department, stiU remain in force on and after the 1st proximo, unrepealed and un modified. The clause In the Tariff act of 1801 repeal tag such of existing laws as are repjgnacl to tts provisions, is not considered to change or modify the warehousing or appraisement laws and regu lations now In force, except in one particular, which is Uwt In esses where a bill of lading la presented showing the day of actual shipment, oer tided to by a consular aCBcer of the United Slates, such date, In lieu of the "pe riod of exportation" presented by existing laws, shall be the date at which the foreign market value of the mer chandise shall be estimated and ascertained by the ap praisers, in order to tbe iMcesment of ad valorem duties. la the case of merchandise actually on shipboard and konnd to the United States on or before tbe 17tb last., and of merchandise on board of vessels la port on the 1st ef April next, where the vesnels have been regularly en tered at the Custom House, the owners or Importers of ?wh merchandise will be permitted to enter for conaump tton or warehousing, at tho rates of duty now existing, or tf tbe rates of duty on the merchandise are leadened by tlx- tariff of 1801, they may, at their option, enter at the lesser rate*. The same privilege will be extended to all nserchaadise In public store, unclaimed on the 1st proximo, when en lernd for consumption or warehousing In pursuance of law; and all merehan'llse In warehouse under bond on the lPt proximo will be entitled to entry for withdrawal at rates of duty now existing; or If the rates of duty on tbe merchandise are lessened by the Tariff of lH0l,th? en try thereof may, at the opt Inn of the importer or owser, be marfe at the lesser rates. la allowance* on aocount of tare, draft, ko., on gooda subject to specific duty under the new tiriff, officers of ? the customs will be governed by the provisions of the ?fty eighth and fifty- ninth sections of tbe Oeneral C >llec Uon act of March a, 17PO, which are ngaid bmogMlnta operation.

Movements are now golpg on in the Navy Department looking to a thorough reorganization of that arm of the service. It is now completely demoralized. Many of the most efficient officers have already resigned. The gun boats of the African squadron have been ordered home. A portion of the Mediterranean and East India squadrons have alio been ordered home. The veasels are of light draft, and can enter any of the harbors on the Southern coast. These movements are regarded as significant. THE CANADA OONSnAT*. The radical republicans and abolitionists here are greatly rejoiced at the appointment of Joshua R.

According to present Indications tne nomination of Mr. Holloway for Commissioner or Patents cannot be con firmed, the Committee of Patents not having reported on the subject. Therefore It will probably be withdrawn. Col. Alfred M. Barbour, Superintendent of the Harper's Ferry Armory, tendered his resignation to the War De partment to day. Arpoianiiwre (osramro.

H. , offered a resolution that the Senate proceed to the ? lection of a S-rgeant-atAnus, Dt or keeper and Assistant Doorkeeper. Laid orer. Mr. Powau., (opp.) of Ky., called up bia resolution di recting the Secretary to pa; to the committee elerka of tne last session of Congrese, excepting thote of Finance, Claims and Pensions, th? usual compensation for sixty days. Mr. T? am; u., (rep ) of HI. , looked upon thla aa giving a gratuity of three hundred aad sixty dollars to sa<:b clerk. As the republican wai a reform party he was for meeting abuaes at the threshold. Mr. Clvuiia*, rfnpp ) of S, C., was glvd the Senator (Mr. Trumbull) hail taken that course. Ho (Mr Cling man) had n? doubt that very many clerks could be p> o wired at half of what Is now paid without giving exti ft compensate n. Mr. P'iwhi said In reply that persons could alao be pror tired to act as Senatois for half the moaey now paid i to them. Mr. Ciikomai replied that argument had been thrown , at him when be waa a m^mb.-r of tho Hong*. but he would not n?w reply to it. They rou'd, however, got men to fill the clerkships faster than a regiment could shoot them down. Mr. Powkix f*ld that he meant no Insinuation In whit be bad eaid.

Mr. Douglas' resolution, cal' ug for infomatton in rt gird to the forte, navy j ar ds, Ac. , In the acceded 3tatet , ?u takes up. Mr. Bavako, (opp) of DeL. resumed and concluded hie renuu ka in flavor of recognizing the Independence of the Confederate Rates and arguing that there la danger of n collision unless a treaty la negotiated. We cannot bring them back to the Union by coercion of arms. Tf we do not recognise the independence of these Statue , foreign nationa will, and thia would be calculated to pro duce a conflict between the two aectiona of the country. Mr. Hown, of Wis.. appose 1 the reeohitioo, Orel, be oauie it aeemed to him. ao far at least aa the mover of it was concerned, to be wnoUy unnecessary , for :t uppearel to him from the Senator's (Mr. Douglas) argument that he already poeaenaed the information he sought to obtain. Be (Mr. Howe) waa also opposed to it for the reason that he waa not satisfied that the Secretary of War tofl the Information desired. But a short time had elapoed since the Secretary had entered oo the dutiea of hia office. He waa not at all certain that the Secretary of War ha 1 nil the mlLute information which the resolution called for. It would not be a very remarkable circumstance If ha had not. It waa a little peculiar that this Information should be railed for in the very morning of this adminis tration and not In the evening light of the late adminis tration. He was opposed to the resolution for another reason. He was not entirely convinced of the wisdom of giving to the country the intelligence which the resolu tion demands. It was said that the condition of the country is critical and we are surrounded by danger*. He (Mr Howe) knew that imny parts of the country were alarmed. He did not and v take to know or say bow serious the danger 18. Tliero was too much of It He believed it wss said the dan ger is no leas imposing than n hostile UMl H a threatening attitude, and the assumption Is as to whether we are to have peace or war. He was not prepared to say in what possible contingency it would be wise and prudent to publish to friends an 1 unomie* the very minute Information which the resolution called for. It', aa had been said, we have a public enemy confronting us, would It be the part of wiadom and aolld statesmanship to pnbtiah for their Information what forts we have in our pes sees ton and by what foroe we con hold them, and In addition, what additional forces and sums of money will be required for this purpose)* He had been In formed that during the late administration snob intelligence was very Iree!y privately imparted, bat he believed it had less regard for appearances, and did not communicate It to the public. He old not think we had better be more partial to our enemies. It might be judicious to contine this knowledge to ourselves if we have it. While he doubted the wis dom of oommunicating this knowledge to our enemies, he was not entirely sure it would be prudent to Impart it to their friends. The government has friends; the people of the United States are not all epemles. The country had been accustomed to our government as hold ing a respectable position among the nations of the world, and as having a fair standing among the families of the earth. It was looked up to with some reipect by the people of other countries and ourselves. Its autho rity was not questioned at home and not k raved abroad. No Power presumed to brave its arms ? no Power pre sumed to insult Its flag. Was it so now? It was said a government which braves and defies It baa sprung from ourselves? a rib of our own, taken from our body in n horrid sleep ? and that government is ao powerful that, as the Senator from Illlnoia suggested, It would require two hundred and eighty-five thousand men to 4 hn In ? a It! inst. nnvilnn nf tha How happened thla If it Is a question which the people are putting to themselves to-day, and have been putting for many days? They are deeply curious to know now this happened. It Is a strange event, and if bo, it shows that they have not been fairly dealt by. How happened It ? He did not think we had better hurry up the answer. When this great and much trusting peoplo were closing their nostrils at official treachery, it tos not a proper time to respond. They had better keep to the by ways, and It would be veiy prudent to ride with the visor down. He repeated that he dld not think it exactly Jadi sious to publish the information to their enemies, and not quite prudent to tell It so early to their friends. In political as well as other aflklrs, It was aa safe sometimes to fall on one's intuitions as the most carefully studied oourse. They heard every day remarks showing a deliberate design to belittle the government and people of tho United States. They were told the nation Is not equal to this emergency or that enterprise: that you must abandon that post or that section; you have not foroe enough to hold It, kc. Aa the 8erator from Kentucky said, you must abandon all the States which have abjured the authority of the nation, because yju have not foroe enough to maintain your authority tnere. and only enough to Irritate. It seemed to him this was strange language to be used by reprearn Natives of the United States here or elso where. It would do for our enemies to say these things; but ho hardly thought, with due respect, It was becoming to our friends. Wc are not accustomed to how It. We have been in the habit of hearing that our government extends its authority to the utmost limits of the country, and defends itself against any nation lty of the world. This has been the proper American idea. He hoped In a very few months it would again bo the universal American idea. In revolutionary ve met the Biltlsh regulars In the deld, and the irregulars, too, who were not found In the lice, but lurking nn.fr r tho hedges. and tired at our troops from behind old bouses. Tbcv lure Ished arms to our enemies, and tlso led tbem. The friend* of tho republic got from them n > huppoi t whatever. He waa r> minded of this passage in our history by iho sp<>c. h ef tho Senator fron Illinois tho other day. U waa not bin own fault, Red he hesitated not to say the reminder was the fault of the speech itself. We have now an administration. With it has been proclalme 1 an oarnest desire and fixed purpose to maintain the authority of tho United States, and no*, the authority of this or that section merely , by peaceful means, if peaceful moans will suffice. This is tho settled purpoffl, as he understood it, of the administration. Was it not a purpose which demanded the best energies of every oner It seemed to him. the Senator from Illi nois was not furnishing the great aid be could have fur nished with this view Instead <>f helping to hold up the bands of the government, tbat Senator was confronting the government, not by arms and the application of force, but with objections tbat the administration must stop hero, then there, and must not un dertake to collect the revenue, kc., and it seemed to him (Mr. Howe) this furnished aid to the enemies, and not to the friends of the country. He would admonish representatives that if another revo lution is to be thrust upon us wo should take especial care that the future historian shall not be compelled to record tbat with tho friends of tho United States were found the s< mblacce of thocosboysof the Revolution. Ma (Mr. II. "s pari} had done nothing to creato the fever ish apprehension alluded to by the Senator from Illinois. They were in no way responsible for it; they have no purpose to trample on a sin ale rieht of any individual in any portion of tho country. The Senator from Illinois arg'.ed that the Information asked for was to allay excitement; but did not every such suggestion from so rcspsc table a source tend more than all things else to Increase and continue the excitement ? To allay exoltcment all should unite to tell the cjuntry they have no purpose to trample on any one's rights or constitutional privileges. As to Mr. Douglas' proposition to amend the constitution, be objeoted to It for the admiislon it contatned ? namely, that fraternity can be maintained only by adopting certain amendments to the fundamental law. This Is not the proper method of bringing about fraternity, for if approved tnly by a portion of the people of the Union, It would be disapproved by the remainder. ? constitu tion to be satisfactory mo* t receive the assent of tho whole country. We have gotsu.ha constitution now. Why should not the people continue to be satiafled with ? Without concluding hia remarks bo give way to a mo tion to go into executive session, which p rev tiled. The Senate afterwards adjourned. THE SOUTHERN CONFEDERACY. Nkw Okixa.ih, March 22, 1M1. It la understood that the Confederate Commissioners to Europe will not leave till the 3lst instant. By proclamation of General Bragg, all versels are pro hibited to furnish supplies to war vessels off Pensaoola or to Fort Pickeas, under penaluy of forfeiture to Uio con federation. * PROCEEDINGS OP THE MISSOURI STATE CONVENTION. Sr. Lorn, March 22, 1891. Tn the Missouri Ptate Convention yesterday Mr. Hci dwo*, chairman of the committee to which was referred the communication of the Commissioner from ueocgia, presented a long report, declaring against fteoeraion, and eihortlng Georgia and other seceding States to dealst from the revolutionary measures commenced by them, and unite their voice with ours la restoring peaco and frater nal relations between all the Mates.

A h'ftvy udow storm in March la ratber a rare oc currence, and the one that baa lately visited ita is of so unusual a character, that many persons assert It's like has not been seen since the Inauguration of President Harrison? just twenty years ago. On ono or two occa sions we bare bad snow on tbe ground at even a later period of the year, but so sodden a change from a beauteous spring to midwinter ?, thanks* be, a rarity. But rare as It la, tbe Gothamltes know somewhat bow to make the best of even so bad a bargain , if we may jut'ge from the LIFE IN TBB CENTRAL PARK. Dreary, dull and desolate this pleasure garden looked la Its dazzling cloak of wbite. The young grass had appa rentlj less Its verdant hue, for to the visiter It was an "invisible green." Of tho aforesaid visiters the pedes trians were but few, although at early morn and during the whole day the horse snow ploughs were set to work to clear from the sidewalks the superabundance of scow, which after thta operation presented walla on either side, In many instanoes as high as tho chest of a full slx?d men. Although this quantity of snow did not e\!st ill over the I'ark, bu? mostly where the light mnterlal had drifted to, still ther" was a good surface every where. On tbe drive there was enough to make fair sleighing, which, If It could no*, have been called su perlatively good, yet there bad been far worse Instances durirg the past soiieon. Tbe visiters during the morn ing were few but sel?-ct. Several four In hands, mu sically decked out, were on the drive, one set oooetating of four blood bays, belonging to 0. L. Bellows, another of four Mack hor?<s, another dappled gray, these ware li\ ail cases attached to family sletghs. Several double ard ali gle cutters were on the Park.H during the afternoon, tbe former drawn by very handsome torn*.

From a recent debate In tbe British House of Common* it appears that tho total expense incurred by Great Britain for the military defence of Its colonies amounts to about four millions sterling per annum.
