It to knows that the subject of evacuating Fort Pickens has been under consideration by the administration. I have Information which learos no doubt in my mind that Fort Pickens will be evacuated within thirty days from this time, and for the same reasots that made the aban donment of Fort Sumter necessary. By the end of this week Fort Pickens will be invested by not less than five thousand men, with ton thousand volunteers within hail to reinforce if necessary. Powerful batteries will com mand the whole offing, the whole armament rendering it simply Impossible to put reinforcements and supplies Into Fort Plckons without an immense number of men and a large expenditure of money, neither of which does tho administration possess, nor can command within the time required. Thus ends, by tbe necessities of the case, the last im mediate cause of collision at present threatening the peace of the country. This statement will doubtless be denied; but a few days will vindicate Its truth. SOUTHERN COMMISSIONERS AND THE FOREIGN AMBASSADORS. Wabiiwgtox, March 26, 1861. Tbo statement that the Commissioners from tbe Con federate States had had an interview with tbe Secretary of State is untrue. Their communication has been en tirely informal, but perfectly satisfactory to them. The Southern Commissioners are dining to night with the foreign ambassadors at Mr. Corccran's. This looks very significant. The Commissioners are on most friendly terms with the ambassadors of England and France. THE QUE8TION OF COLLECTING THE REVE NUE AT THE GULP PORTS.

The truth of these statemonts seems to be confirmed in part, by the fact that the President has nominated George W. Lane as Judge of the Northern and Southern districts of Alabama. The Senate will meet to-morrow at eleven o'clock, two hours earlier than heretofore, being anxious to tlnish tbi'Lr executive business and adjourn at the earliest prac ticable time. thk *rw tork Arronrnnom. There 1s another hitch In the New York appointments. Tbo wrargltrg of the several cliques ts perfectly awful.

The Boston applicant for the Navy Ag?ttcy ia Colonel Newell A. Thompson, who is as well fortlUed as Mr. Hall. The Massachusetts patriots who are now here, hardly one of whom is a citizen of Boston , may be divided into two classes ? the extreme radicals, who would not allow Borton to be republican unless she adopted their impolitic notions; and the other, who believe that the party will go to the devil it tbe Poet Office is not located in Bute street. Between the two, the republican party, so far as Boston is concerned, is likely to be crushed to atoms, un less Mr. Lincoln and the Cabinet officers take the respon sibility, and do not listen to stories induced by interest* and friendships at the expense of fair play. nntmustopt position ok tk> kmuasby to Mr Pennington's nomination as Secretary of Legation ?*> Paris was confirmed by the 8ena? to-day.

The Senate rt sumed the consideration of the resolution of Mr. Douglas in reference to the forts, navy yards, arsenals and other property In the seceded States.

He (Mr Breckinridge) chvgod that ! It wae the purpose and design of tho republican orgmtzt tion to esciudc. directly or tn.iiectiy, from every inch of ' the common territory, every citizen of evory >>uth*rn Staie who oesired to oarry with bin there hie slave pro- ! perty. In other wore*, the republicans do ant intend that slave property shall be re -.egnizil in a*? territory of the United S'ates These are the p'Ln'ipals of tfc* republican pa-ty. and unless the people drive them from p *er they will carry their principles into execution. We have been looking since 'he 4th of March on a dis rupted ("onlederacy While sovoo States have been con solidating their power, and been looking at the dis contents in other States, those of the border had been earnestly endeavoring to bring about a reunion of thu States. Yet he deeply regrette 1 to say that he nad seen no evidenoe on the republican side to meet those endeavors hair way. The bolder slave Stated cannot reunite this confecerscy. The majority of the noa sltve holding S'ates alone have the power to do so; and he expressed the opinion with grief, but with a firm conviction, tliat unless within a short time the republi cans who are here manifest a spit it to give ihe "equality'' which the border slave S>atc? claim, the question will be solved in one of these ways We may drift into civil' strife if the people are allowod no opportunity to speak; but if we havo not civil strife then a pooceful separation by treaty. If the republican statesman and their 'fiends remain tlrm, rigid and determined there can be no other result than to drive the border slave States into a Union with the Confederate States, in the belief that government represents the true K'uciples of the old federal system If the border slave ten hold a Convention, which s?eoied probable, and the people of the non slave holding States aoem it heir duty to reji < t sueh propositions as may be essential, then, the disruption of the Unlc n will be inevitable to the extent of tifteen States, and at ns distant day the now oonfodoracy will be the largest on this continent. Mr. Dort.uw, (opp ) of Ul , replied, reciting his paints in a former uiscuesion to sh"W that the slaveho'd'.ng States have no complaint to make. They havo got their just proportion and juat rights in all the Territories of the I'nited Mates. Be could not conceal his surprise that the Senators from Kentucky denied all the positions he had assumod. Tho Senator, after saying 'hat if the bor der slave States could not get one or ih? propositions laid down by him, and having insisted tnat there was no hope in this particular, remarked, 'that Kentucky, from mountain peak to mounta'n peak, and from overy valley and smiling plain, would ring torth the cry of jus tice and equalily." Ills (Mr. Douglas ) oaject was to de monstrate that there was no cause for sucn uction, and that Kentucky has justice and equality in the forri'oriej according to the let is prescribed by the Senator himself, ana that there is an equilabe division on the line of 37, ? half d< gree further south than Mr. Crittenden's proposition claimtd The Senator from <eutuck r had not attempted to disprove this. He was too prudent to make 'neat tempt, but he knew tho Territories of Colorado, N<wada and Dacotah had been organized on the basis of the Ka' sas Nebraska bill. All these Territories were or ganized on Ihe prltcipleof n?n Intervention by f. tigress, leavli g the people to decide the slavory question as they pleased, subject only to the limitation of th > i institu tion, and leaving tho country to ascertain what Ihe limitation is. This is all tho South have sver asked. The republicans hive aban doned the Wilmot proviso and Congressional intervention, and repudiate Congressional prohibition of slavery. The Senator would not deny thai. He did not uck the Senator from Kentucky to say that ihe republi cans have abandoned all thoir essential principles. Ho did not ask him to do anything to promote their interests. He (Itr Douglas) did not believe in tho political creed of that part; , and did not believe that the best interests of country would be promoted bv tho exercise of tbeir power, still ho preferred tho Union under a republican administration lo none at all. Laatm'ich as it was true that they have recognized the rights of the South In Ihe Territories, and have not attempted to repeal the slave coce of New Mexico, this fact should be proclAtmod by every loyal Union man It was all he atked. He de manded that every tact and truth that could be uttered, should b? uttered by every man to allay sectional strife ? to calm tho irritation in the siavebclding States, and to rettorc reason In order tV.at we may hereafter succeed In seeming such coatllutiocal guarantees a* rhall pre vent civil strife and restore the I'nioa. (Ap plause.) He then proceeded to show from the inaugural that Mr. I.tnooln acknowledges the duty of federsl protection to slave property, and that It is the duty of Cwgress to pass laws afloruiog such protection, and that It is the duty of the federal officers to execute the laws Hence the Senator from Kentucky mistook ifhen he said that there wss no instance in which federal protection would not be afforded. Mr. Bjutt'KLfiuiKj* replied ? He said, in attempting to assist the Senator from Illinois tn getting through his reso lution ef Inquiry, that It might >ook in the direction of peace, be expressed his conviction that ho had seen no evi dence that the republicans have abandoned their prlnci pics. The Venator who by turns had been the eulogist and denounoer of the republicans, said that they acted in a spirit of patriotio devotion to the whole country, and desired to give equal rights to all the States, and that they bad particularly abandoned their principles as to slavery in the Territories. He would not chargo tho Senator with the purpose to misrepresent him, but that Senator called attention to two paragraphs In his (Mr. Breckinridge's), spech Ho said that he (Mr. Breckinridge), bad declared that the bor der slave States could not remain tn the Union on equal terms or without an equitable division, and that tho South had no right to believe that they would recelvo tho protection and recognition they ask. Now, the inference to be drawn from this was, that ho was In favor of precipitating Kentucky out or the Union. The Senutor Itotn Illinois had git en a slight twist to his language He (Mr. Breckinridge) did say on more than one occasion that the dominant party had manifest cd, by the acts of their representatives, that they will not abolith slavery in the States, and that an equal Mates they couid not remain in the Union when the prop* rtv or all of them was not to be recog ntzed or protected. The Union was broken already, and unless some energetic, manly efforts were made to settio the question on broad national principles, the Union trill be broken still further. It could not bo saved by per suading the people that the republicans have abandoned the principles to which ttoey still adhere. Such a decla ration waa calculated to produce apprehension oad ioju rtous effect. Trerldent Lincoln recognizes a qualified property la slave labor within the stave States, but at the same time bo in bta inaugural recognises the enunciation of the Cfeloago platform that the normal condlth>n of tho Territories Is freedom, fee. Th-s Is the conviction a-d Klnclple of tho majority on this floor, as well a? of the esldeat and his party. Was It not, therefore, belittling to sny that the republicans have abandoned their es^en tial principle when all tbelr machinery is levelled against slavery? He would be glad to roe the republicans driven from power, in order that these questions might bo ad justed on conatituth nal principles. Mr. iH.rtn.AS replied that he said that the Senator would notgoback to Kentucky and tell his peoplo that tliey stand in te?pcct lo the Territories bitter than evor they did before. While Lc did n H deny this wss the case, he | desired that Kent loky. and every other estate, should know the fact lis, too, dostrcl to put the republican party out of power, but he wculd not foster unkind feel ings in the Sotilb for party purpe?es He would tell the triiih about the repulicsn paity, won if it operated to their credit. Mr. BMCfcCiUUMlK auggeat'd that llr. Itouglaa now aak the republic inn ht ro the u anoo for omitting in iho terri torial mts nay nltcalon to or prohibition or slave rj. Mr twncMH replied that be h>ul s?M that they ao ac'ed from patriate cod*1'I' ratios, to pravMt afurtherdlarup tun 1 1 the UoUn. lie wasted to crush down every dia unlonlst lu Kentucky. ( Applauee ) ?

RUINOUS EFFECT OP A COERCIVE POLICY ON OUR NATIONAL CRFDIf AHROAD. LKTTEK FROM MB.

You call my attention to a letter writ ten from I/mdon? extensively published In the l*rge cities, and In the New YorK Keening Pott among other papers, or which my name has boen mentioned as the author. It states that, should concession be made to the South, and present difficulties be settled by compromise, our national credit abroad would be ruined, sc. Tho writer is unknown to me. If I had written on tho sub ject, my remarks would bav been the reverse of those Soud. The anticipation of a bloody conflict botween e North and the South has already destroyed confi dence In the United States government stocks and many of the Slates securities, und millions have, within a few months, been sent home for a market in consequence. It is ? nly by conceesion on the part of the Northern States, and a compromise which would secure the best feellDgs of the border States towards the North and West, that we can reinstate our credit abroad. I pray that the efforts making by the patriotic Crittenden, and the aobie stand which old Virginia, Maty land and other sin ter border States are now mnkiag for conciliation and the Unto* may prove successful : but If, contrary to my hopes and expectations, It should prove otherwise, and-tbose States )o:n the South, even under amlcablo arrangements, the constant fear of war between the two sections would almost entirely destroy the credit of both the Northern and Southern confedeiacbw in Em-ope What la still mire Important, the prestige which ha* Heretofore emblazoned the nrms of our Union will have disappeared, and that pride of country, which lias been a source of so much pratiflcaticn to Americans In foreign society, will attend them no more.

The New York Rxchange Bank building, corner of Greenwich and Dey streets, was the object of much attraction yester day, In conseqnencc of the extraordinary and Ingenious attempt made to break into tho safe by burglars the day previously. Groat anxiety was manifested to get a gltmpre of tho great subterranean passage way connect log wttb the robbers' lair, but tho police, with singular pertinacity, decided to k> ep the tunnel sacred Trom the gate of the populace. Detective Keefe. who ha* been detailed In connection with several otberi of Sergeant Letlfcrte' squad to term out th? burglars, succeeded yes terday mornirg in arresting ono of the suspectod parties. The prisoner,'* ho is an Englishman, la said to b? a not i r lour burglar, but at present there is no evldonce what ever to implicate blm in the bank robbery. The ac cused, whose name is Sheffield, was arrested sone three months ago on suspicion of burglary and locked ip in the Tombs in company wi'.h a com pan i n named Richard Ocllard. Sh<>ftleld suc ceeded In effecting his rolease by means of a hah* at c.trpxu , but his companion in misery still romalns Incarcerated, the prisoner denies all knowledge of the affair, but tbo Kllco thought proper to lock him up for a few days. iring tbc day John Alcock, tho carpet weaver who sold out to the burglars, made his epoearanoe at the Third precinct nut ion nonso, and asked If be was wanted. He was questioned a Httle by Contain Jameson, but as he aeomtd to be possessed of bat little or no Information re garding the robbery, ho was discharged. The detectivcs still continue unremitting In their nenroh for the guilty parties, and feel sanguine of being able to effect some thing before the lapse of many days. In our account of tho rf/bbory published In yesterday's Hnun>, the tunnel was represented to be "seven feet'' long ft should bavo read '?seventy feet." We understand th ? ptMBM has sin' r bwn measured, and that Ma length Is but a fraction under seventy feet. What hours of toll a l<1 trouble the excavation must have cost the lntrep'.d robbers, and yet all their labor and Ingenuity went for nought! Takirg Into account the amount expended in pnrihasing toois, buying out the weaver, kc. , the bur glars mud have been out of pocket at lea: t $600. True they realized about $1 000 in uncurrent money, but ihev must have expended, at the least calculation. over $1,600 in doirg so. However, tbo game wss a bold one, and ha I there tot been a slight miscalculation as to the strength of the sale, the robbers would hare been richly re warded. Personal Intelligence. Col. C.

'Ml evening the climax *11 capped by mi in ternational at g tight, he >atch America sailed in, in ter nationally; Morphj '? games were international; Piiorets ran an international race; Hecoan gave Sayern International punches about be head ? in short, the word international has clearly gono to the dogs, and may with propriety be appl ed to the fight we have to describe. This match, between Roele of Brooklyn and Besa of Liverpool, England, was made some time ago, and has created very great :nt -rest in sporting circle*. The re putation oi Kng'.e is us wide as the oountry- she has won ten matches and many dollars for her owner, who, Ond wg here no moro dogs to conquer, consented to match hie p< t with the English Ress. Besa bad bet gpcaily fortu uate In England? having won every match of i he five sfca had fought ? and bar trainer, who rej >ices In tho ooquoraen of SneAeld George, had no tbe slightest objections to crossing the Atlanue if h^ ex pen sea were guaranteed. The match, therefore, ni readily made for $260 a side. Sheffield George and UM other dog oame over about am*"" af ?, and all parties went Into training for tho -? ntCCt. Phe former per lormances of the dogs are of uu sort of interest to any but (porting ma, ma they know an about the animals already. me betting, apt to yesterday ; was slow, and tho odds rather in favor of Rosie Not lees than ten thout-and dollars depended upon the result Of this fight, and in the West and South, in California and in Kng land, the betting waa heavy. Outsiders, to whom a dog is but a dog, '? And cotblng more," can form no Idea whatever of the cxcitement which soah mttcbee produce among sporting men, the delight with whlrh they are anticipated, the zest with which they ara enjoyed, the amount oi? money whicb is staked upon them. PRELiMINABIKS be<ng duly arranged, and tbe dogs in good condition and cxger for the fray? which tboy seemed to know was near at band? tbe tight came off last night at a well known sporting bouse near this olty. Seats, ovpable of holding about five hundred persona, sloped up from the pit, which whs about sixteen leet long by twelve broad and two deep. For fear that tho st outings of the spectators would attract tho police and interrupt the fight, the doors, windows and ventilators of tbe room were rioted. snd in this almost air-tight apartment over one thousand peiBons, having paid the admission feo of fifty cents, were packed so tijjb ly tbat movement was im possible and respiration difflcu't. The assemblage con sisted mostly of Bro. klyn men, of all shades of charac ter; and, as in tbo Houses of 1'ariiament and of Congress, the members of opposite opinions are seated upon opposite cities of the bouae, so here tboeo persons who backed tb?- English kept themselves separate and distinct from thoso who backed the Ameri can champion. At half put eight o'clock, when tbe pro ceedings began, the room was lined with hitloae, coat ees men, shouting, swearlnp fce'tinir, offering and taking odds of seven to live and three to two upon Roele, Uie Brooklyn pet. The proprietor of the bull having announced tbat the tight would proceed if the- e was no Interruption; but tbat if tho disorder among the spectators attracted tbe police, tbe light would bo concluded prtvately. the doge wore wcigh? d and found to be under meep-jcifiod twenty one pounds, and Bess was brought tnto the pit. Besa la a rmi.il bell terrier, her body white, her ears and side-face black > her every mutclH splendidly developed, with no ounce of superfluous flesh about her. Ue.r beauty ?s a fghting dug elicited shouts of admuation and delight ficm the spectators Having been washed by >im He I.oughlin, a ;lne looking Irishman and tratner of Roaie, she was tasted? tbat is to my, McLougblin applied htu torque to tbe dog to taste f aoy per uicious drug haa been placed upon her to poison her opponent during tbe fight. Bess was then concealed behind a curtain of coats, held by closely crowded men, and Roaie (who ap peared a trlfio heavier than Besa, and who was ? nilrely wb it e, underwent a similar process at the hands and mouth of Kbrffield George. So particular are tne trainers about this drugging business that, in champion matches , it is usual for the two trainers to exchange riothee; bu u In this instanco the point was waived. TBE FIG HT. At a boot nine o'clock, the dogs having been dried and thorei'eteca calling time, the curt* log were removed una the dogs sprang together. With low marls of rage with every musclo rigid, with jaws closing and holding like keen viocs, the cbampbns fought more like exqui fitely arranged machines than like animate. For th lit fit l ew momenta Koste bad tbe beet of the bar gain, and her admirers ihmM accordingly. T& trainer* Btcod each behind his own dog, snap (?lLg their lingers for tlio animals to keep their hold; Dumping to order them to make biisker fighting, encoursging, advising and assisting ibt m by word and gesture, but refraining from touching tbem with even the tip of a linger. In ten minutes Bern' victory was begun. The inatinct of the dogs, their edu cation and their skill was wonderful. Now they rose upon their hind feet and wrestled and tripped, like champions. Now Bess allowed hrr opponent to retain a painful, but not dangerous bold, until she had breathed heraeli a little. Now flosle, by a quick MtirnmiTsaiilt, a miudtu rally , or by seizing one of ber contestant's legs, succeeded in shaking herself loose from a fatal grip. Now Uess threw the American dog heavily several times in order to weaken it, and then, se curing a good hold crouched her back and bored her' self Into her opponent a very heart. Then cornea quick rally, in which each tried to sccuie the best grip ? fenc ing, dodging, moving like lightning, watching each uiner'H eyes, and, the moment an opportunity occurred, fastening ltd teeth like a spring trap and pull ing the other dog backwards and forwards around tbe pit by main force. It Is' im [xsdble to SI|S ? the agility of th? dogs' movements, their celerity, ihe scientific precision and certainty of their attk;k and defence, tbe inatincilvs psstion which made tvery limb like iron and every muSclu like steel; the knowledge wbtoh they seemed t? possots or everything which would favor or de feat them ; the indomitable pluck with which endured the pains of tbe combat, tho ess with which, while suffering terribly or Inflicting equal punishment, they beard and obeyed the commands of their trainers. And all this in perfect alienee, the low snarls with which tbe oomiat began having ceased ss the dogs warmed to thnir work. In fif teen uiinutes a low murmur from the Knglish beaches, and a defiant shout irom those or the Hrooklynltes, an nounced' that Rosie's tail had dropped? a sure sign of distress- and in seventeen minutes from the commencement of the tight. Um pet of Brook lyn, who bad never been made to com plain before, begat) to cry for quarter, and now lay helpless at tbe mercy of her adversary ; per ceiving which Btss pausod a momtnt to Uke breath for tbe ct/vf de mort. but even then lay upon her opponent so a? to deprive it of the power of resptratksn A mo rn- nt, and with hind logs (irmly braced, Bess poshed her way to Kostu's throat ana tb? contest instantly ceased. BBH' tictoht. Hers' trainer now called b*s dog away for a scratch, or turn, which is almost equivalent to a round in pugilism. The dogs were taken to their corners, sponged and again let go. Bess flew across the ring at ber adversary and worked bard to finish ber ask as soon ss possible. All the while Rosio uttered wook. plaintive criM, and tried feeldy to beat od those sdvp toeth which were gntwlng out her life. One or two Brr.oklyn men, who are .nterested In tbe tight form hundred* of dollars, rose to leave the room, but as it war- anticipated? sueh is tho boasted honor amrog sporting men ? that they were going for tho po lice, tremendous shou's were raised, the keepers refasod to open Uo doors, an-1 the informers were sot allow ed to go out of tho huldlng. McLaughlin now used every means to carry lies* away. Sheffield George, excited, apprehensive. anxious, encouraged hte d< n to mnke a death of it. Finally, at just thirty one minutes Irom the beginning of th? tl<bt. tbe dogs wore -gain scratched. McMughlin accidental* touched Bass antnent before, but the rsferers touk no notice of this, >n account of tbe obvious defeat of his dog. Coder the circumstances, this carelessness would hare lost McLsnghlin bis light. The dags were sgain rpoapso, snd brought out, it t><- ng Kosie's turn to cross ?be ring and sttark Pern. The I*rid<? of Brooklyn was humbled, however. She was poshed a root or two toarards her adversary, *ho was anxiously endeavoring to get at her, and then sunk dewnio nearly dead that ?he is not ex pected to recover, and Bess was doc'ared the winner of the tight and the champion dog of the world. In such a combat, if the oogs alone be considered, ibe/e is none of that repoisiveness whtsn is gsaerailr supposed to accompany dog Agtit.Bg. Tbe d gs fight quiet y, scientifically and evidently love their work Of tho mm who make dog fighting a llvllbo >d , however, or tf thuee who haliltuaily encourage, att< nd and suuport exhibitions, taere can be hut one opinion, and that net the most favorable. The class of men who get up and attend tbese tights are sufflotently and Justly undsr the baa of public opprobrium already, and to that we leave them. Of the two, we consider the dog tbe superior animal. CoRxxmo* ? It was stated in several of tbe dally papers, about a fortnight ago, that six stsvedorss and ? longshoreman were taken into custody charged with pur loining goods Trom the Nsw York, Livsrpool snd PhUadel pbis Mtenrnsbip Company's vessels, snd that tbe value of ihf goods was $l,2(i0, and tdenHled ss stolen from tbe ships in attention, when the accused wsrs taken >sto cus tody.
