WASHnroro.v, March 24, 1861. Intelligence has just been received here and it was laid at once before the administration that commissioners are now In New Mexico, Arlsona, Sonora and Chihuahua, despatched hence by the Independent State of Texas to aonfer with the people Is those Territories In relation to the present political crisis, and to Invite their oo opera tion in the formation of the Southern confederacy to bo composed of such slave States as may unite themselves for this object. The commissioners use the following significant language in their address to the people in those Territories:?" Every argument and every appeal hitherto made In behalf of the prosperity of our onoe glorious country seems to have proved Inadequate to the task of crushing out the black fanaticism of the North, and the current of seoesslon, Impelled on by a sense of duty and hereditary honor by the South, cannot be turned to Its fountain. Irreoon olleable as the thought may^be to the American patriot, the stern fact Is palpable that the bonds of our Union are severed. The beacon light of hope, which a few days ago loomed up In the heart of every lover of his country, now flickers diinlp In the socket, and apparently no earthly power can avert the dissolution of thq slave nnd non-slave States of the Union. It must be determined whether you will longer, feeding upon hope, ltve in nnarohy, or forget a government by whom you have been discarded, even turning a deaf ear to yoiu; supplications, nnd at whose door you can Justly lay the lives and for tunes of many of your best cltlsens. The matter seems to be well received. The Commis sioners are Invited to attend a convention, convened to meet on Maroh 16, at Messllla, for the purpose of taking Into consideration the present political crisis of the ooontry. This Convention, It was oonfldent Jy believed, would adopt some plan for the carrying out ?r?e movement contemplated by the Commies loner*. Shis tnteUigsnco has oaused great uneasiness on the part of the adssinlslratlon. This is another embarrass ing question; but it has to be met, and that promptly too; for the administration clearly see In the movement tke designs of tke Sooth towardy the fertile plains at Mexico. THE EXTRA SESSION OF CONGRESS. Wjjuukotow, March 24, 1S81. the Cabinet session of yesterday was protracted until a Mo how last night. What determination, If any, they i to has not transpired. It Is more than probable tknt they failed to reach anything deSnltlvo In regard to tb? policy to be pursued towards the the ssoedlng States. The question of an extra session was before them, and n gentleman who has the run of the kitchen at the White (loose stated to-day that he did not see how the adminis tration oould get along without an extra session. Be re ceived his Impression undoubtedly from the President. Several members of the Cabinet are known to flavor an early assembling of Oougrees. Thero are others whs fear to take such a step, lest it saay, as In former admin istrations, be the preourior of speedy downfall. There Is a rapidly growing sentiment here among conservative men favorable to the adoption of the oonstltutlon of the Confederate States. They regard that instrument as a great Improve ?ant span the old sos, snd what Is more Isaportant, they issert that by Its adoption the Union Is again restored and psaoa and fraternal fooling between the seotions Irrevocably osmented, THE BUSH FOB OFFICE. * W abhwotoh , March 94, 1861. Aert la a bitter struggle going o? in Um republican I ruki ?r? the nomination of the Oommlaa loner of Fatenta. The Preaident sent to the Senate the name of I Hotlowny, at Indiana.

No* only the alleged pro n lea* , but alao the deolaratlo at war and oonaeqnent backing down of the Preaident, are now pronounced entirely imaginary.

There 1- a Itrocgly ?upported rumor, that la Um pro tracted Cabinet mee'lng yesterday afternoon, the New Ysrk appointments ware definitely agreed upon, and that they will be sent to the Senate to-morrow. Dr. Lelb, an Mlaols leader if much taleat aad d latin gnlshed party service, baa been nominated Marahal for DacoUh Territory. The appointment la very pop alar among Weateru republlcaaa. Among the things to be la the nomination of E. J. Chase, of Lockport, for Marahal of the Northern distrlc' of New York State. T. Bigelow Lawrerioo, of Boston, la to be Consul General to Florence. A very pleasant posi tion, for which llr. Lawrence, owing to his long expe rience as Secretary of Legation at London, la especially qualified. Win. H. Fry, knocked out of the French Secretaryship of Legation, has been appointed Secretary of Legation at Turin, where Geo. P. Marsh, of Vermont, goes at Minister. Wm. Stowe, Clerk of the Maaaachnaeta I loose of Repre aentatlves, has been appointed Postmaster at Springfield, Masa. Weed haa been In oonatant aeeaion at Wlllard's for two daya and nlghta, endeavoring to break Secretary Chase' a Slats, bat without suocssa. Barney la to bo Collector of New York. Weed gracefully yields the point. General G. F.

Stanton, whoso esse looks well. % Hlmeon Draper Is presented by Weed, Grlnaell AOs., for Naval Officer. Ex-Governor Myron H. Clark waa put down by Weed for Sub-Treasurer, but Dan lei Ulmann headed him off this afternoon, and Clark Is erased and Clmaan seems to bo recorded. Both of these gentlemen have danced attend ance at the White House of late to the dlaguat of better men. Weed sticks to Schulta like a brother. Sohults don't ob ject. teward backs Weed. The tug of war will oome when the President looks over the papers. Mudgett stay turn up then. E. Delafleld Smith, for Dlatrlct Attorney, Is named lp the Weed programme, although Curtis Noyes claimed to be the Weed candidate; but it is said that Everts was the means of throwing Noyes overboard and substituting Smith. The Secretary of War has been closeted with the Pre sident to-nigbt for several hours. The number of office seekers In Washington seems to be on the Increase. The departments continue to be thronged with them, much to the Interruption of the public business. The removals will be numerous In the civil branches of the government, and they will take place as soon as cases can be prepared for official action. This assurance Is repeated ly given to Impatient expectants. Applications by letter, amounting to 400 or SOOdal'y, continue to be received. UNITED STATES SENATE. EXTRA SESSION. Washingtoh, March 23, 1861. ' mmnoH or a pjubwevt pro tsworb. A letter waa read from the Vice President, In which he stated that It was his Intention to be absent during the remainder of the sees km, and in order to afford an oppor tunlty for the Senate to elect a Vice President pro tempore. be desired this fact to be made known. On motion of Mr. Hals, (rep.) of N. H., Mr. Foot, of Vermont, was unanimously chosen President pro tempore. Mr. Foor, being oonduoted to the ohair, said he reoeived this unanimoua expreaalon of their ooofilence and good will with a full recognition of the personal compliment which It Implied, and he trusted with a full appreciation of the direct aad contingent responsibilities Imposed. Nbt altogether unaccustomed to the duties of presiding offloer he had tamed something of the delloaey and diflSomUte which beset the efforts of a faithful disobarge of the du ties involved.

He thanked the Beasts for this flattering testimonial, and pledged himself to use hta utmoat endeavors to disobarge the du ties of the position with fidelity, vlgilanoe and la partiality. ?

It was bat j oat and fair that the election should be postponed until the next scsaion, in or tor that they may meanwhile look forward and make aosae other provision for tksir sat alstenoe.

Mr Fwmin, (rep ) of Ms., did not desire to ssake a general change of officers. The moat of them wars en tirely acceptable? a few, probably , might be removed. Mr. Clwukak, (opp.) of N.

It was not unusual to make changes of officers during executive sessions. Mr. Powell regarded Mr. Trumbull's speech as extra ordinary.

The Knoxvllle Whig of the 10th Instani contains a let ter from the Bon. T. A. K. Nelson, of Tennessee, dated Jonesboro, March 18, the following paragraphs from which will oommand general attentioq. Mr. Nelson, after discussing the Improved dispoiltioo and concilia tory tone of the republican leaden, says: ? Whatever construction the secessionists may place upon Mr. Lincoln's inaug oral aairess, Mr. May nard and myself had it from hits own lips, on Thursday night, (the Thuriday night after the inaugural,) that he wa* tor peace, and would use every exertion in bis power to maintain It; that be was then inclined to the opinion that it would be better to forego the collection of tne revenue for a season, so as to allow the people of the weeding States time for reflection, and that regarding them is children of a common family, he wa* not dis rated to take away their breal by withholding even their mail facilities. He expressed a strong hope that, after a little time Is allowed for* reflection, they will secetie from the position they have taken. We had two interviews with the President. The llrst was sought by us on Wednesday; the second was at his own desire, and was private; but I told him that, with bis permission, I would te.l my constituents when I got home what he said, and he replied that we were at liberty to repeat it to whom we pleased. Although ktrocgly opposed to the action of the secediag Stoles, tne object of Mr. Mayiard and myself, so far as our volun tary counsels would go, wss to prevent a civil war; and we wsie both ss well pleased with the President's frank ness is he expressed himself to be with our visit. [From the Albany Journal, March 33.] "PEACEFUL SECESSION." Is "peaceful secession" possible? The President has sworn to enforoe the laws. If bis oath is kept, and the laws remain as they are, then must be collision, or sub mission to lawless violence. The public property has been seized. Its recovery Is an imperative duty, if prac ticable. The revenue laws are broken. They must be enforced. If practicable. And the practicability of en forcing them depends upon the force at the service of tbe government. Is such a foroe available? Hist is the only real question to be oonsidered by the Com matider- in-Chief. If it be, he Is foresworn if he do not call It into requisition. If tl be not, he Is biamelees. no matter by whom, or where, or when, ihe laws are broken. Tbe opinion el those whose duty it is to know, is that no such force is available as is necessary to compel sub mission. Nor is there any existing law under which tho needed force can be called into requisition. Twenty thousand men, we are told, would be required to effect what is necdsaary to simply hold Port Sumter. If these twenty thousand men cannot be had , because not half that number are in tbe regular service, and tbe President baa no powsr to call for volunteers, then tbe fort must be abandoned. It is a neossslty, no matter tow deep the trmtiltation. IT one fort earns* be held, to M u? lb?* to compel the restoration of the twenty that have been seised? A hundred thousand men would be required for this work. Wbere are the man! And where is the power to call for them? Without me* there can be no coercion. If there be no coercion, peaceful secession to not only puMible, but it is an aiming fact. Out tbe revenue laws be enforced? It seeems not. Ihe statutes require the revenues to be paid at defined CHrts of entrf? not on the quarter deck of a man of-war. ?will net de to begin "theenfvroemeut of the laws" by brssfttag tbsm. Tbe President is as much baund by the lawns <M bumblsst clttsen. Whan the law says one thing he cannot say another.

HAtch lectured yestsrda y afternoon, At the German Stadt Tfceetre, in tbe Bowery, on the subject of "A Festival Sunday and Civil Prosperity. " A Urge audience, including quit* a cumber of ladies, waa la At tendance. The lecturer announced that bis particular sutysct would be "A Festival Sunday and Civil Prosperity," And that be would, during the oour*e of his remarks, reply to the antlSunday amuaemeet arguments of Mr. J. W. I Beekman. The question really si Issae was, whether each man should kssp Sunday ss he pies sell or he com pelled to keep It ss s Puritanical fast? The opponents of Sabbath amusement and recreation had endeavored to take an unfair advantage for their side by that such license on the Sabbath day led to vtoe and crime. 1%e examples of many oountrles In Europe proved tbe onatrary. Mr. Past man had stated that history showed those nations to he most prosperous which bed oheerved the Sabbath In a strict manner, while those which bed made It* festival day bad been iaferk r and dependent. Mr. Beekman had traced the history of tbs Sabbath far only three hundred years baefe. Why did he not go further back? Tbe Irst people cited hsd been the Jews. Now be (the lecturer) claimed that the Jews existed no longer aa a dial tact flhttoa? they were mattered ever tbe earth and wielded no political or national power. The Jewa osieirated tatuiday , or the Seventh day , wooolel?ale a?day, or the Brat day of tin weak. Now, aeoordisg to the views of Mr. Beekman, tho lew* were keeptog boly a day wblch they bad no right to. During the peat three buadred yaara Sunday had been claimed to possess a divine cha racter. Mr Beekman, however, bad mle^epreeenled the facts regarding the celebration of tho Sabbath by tboss people. Tbe Jews, on thai day, did not temple to in. iiu'gp In innocent amuaomsnt and recrettioo, which Is | we J known fact. Mr. August Belmont, the repre sentative of the Rothechlld family In this oountry, and one of tbe Central Park Commissioners, bad taken a determined stand again at the efforts of tbe Hebbatb Com mittee to prevent recreation at tbe Park on Sunday? the only day of tbe week whk-h a majority of our citlseoe could devote to that object The speaker dwelt upm and refuted many other potata of Mr Bookman's argument, referring to the Sabbath history of the Waldensea, Ho|. landers and Netherlander and, after exhibiting fee ridiculous sad hypocritical oieervsnce of tbe Sabbath by the old Puritans in bgland, ss shown by Macao ley, and by those of the present day. ss shown by sa article In a late number of the London Star, stated that thsre waa a strong movement on foot to hnvs tbe public libraries opened on Sunday sad n band of rnuaic stationed la the OratraJ Park en that day.

[From the Chaileaton Mercury, March JO 1 Cotton, Franoe, the tariff, Fort Sumter and the influx of merchants from the interior towna of ikto State, Georgia and Alabama, have kept our mercantile oom meuity upon the tfui oive during the whole weak. It law now beoonte a fixed fact that the ootten crop of 1MM1 will be nearly a million bake short, and that all the additions that may be made by the influence of the bean to the receipts cannot oarry up the crop to four miUtoos ol balei. Galveston acknowledges that she will be 60,400 baits abort, Montgomery 40 000 bttiea; Oulumbua 44,000 ba)? a. I he total deficiency at the seaports, including the overland cotton from Memphis, whlob ta now put into the New oceans reeipts, ia near 740.000 balea, and tbe weekly receipts will, It ia said, increaae the 4s ilciercy. Prices have advanced since these facta have b? en known, an 1 It la aald that many very lengthy and apologetic letters have bean writtan here by shrewd Kui opean houo s abroad acknowledging that they hare been in error in estimating the crop, and Imputing the blame to '.he political sute of aiiairs amongst tbe cotton States. Koteign heights have become very doll, and sosaa m gagements have bean made to Liverpool at ttd. to All up ships that command at 11 14d and Kd.

Soma Investments are daily making in our State T per cent bonds, at par. rhe private deapatch received here of the action of the French go vernment In reognixing our Confederate Hag ooaa me rcially Is generally considered aa an Indication of what all Europe will presently do politically. We of the South have alwaj s looked to Frmce as our friend. In oar chllahood la Ml* France sn l Lafayette were household wot ds, and now, In the childhood of our confederacy, the first Me;* made to eocourage us In freeing ourselves from our Northern foes, and to wtabllsh an independent oom merce, la rrom France. The receipts of merchandise bought previous to the 28th of February, and shipped by the 16th of March, are dally pouring Into our port, and every facility has been extended to our merchants by our worthy Collector and bis very efficient aids, In ths novel process of entering an 1 delivering the cargoes received horn foreign ports of the United States. Ths receipts have been heavv of all goods that c >me imder tbe tariff of 1867, and the immense quantities of Yankee notions Imported would seem to be a supply for years instead of months. The freth supply, also, of coffee, susar, gonny cloth, snd all kinds of domestic and NorthOTn manufactured liquors, has been very heavy. We sae boxes of soap aad starch in such large quantitlea that eur lady bousekeep ers will not feel the effect or the tariff for many a day. Our rice market is active, and all that Is offered is freely sold, and prices jester day and to day had a decided up ward tendency. In naval stores there la not much do ing, but soof will be, as freight room for Europe la more abundant It Is gratifying to notice in our walk amongst tho job hers, tho large number of new points which wa are dal ly aoppljlng with dry gtods, hardware, shoes, drags, earthenware, clothes and groceries; and although the trade la not as heavy aa usual, our Jobbers are prepar ing for tho future, and we look at no distant day to seo the Jobbing trade of Charleston fur exceed any calcula tion that can dow be mane. With a reduced tariff, as In dicated by ths bill introduced tato omr Congress, our European line or steamers, aad our oom meros opsned to the competition of tbe whole world, what limit will there be to the trade of eur Eeathern cities?
