Wimnsr.TOv, March 87, 1861. Ootooel Ward H. lamon, bearer of despatches from President lincoln to Fort Sumter, returned this after noon, and reported himself to the President while tho Cabinet was present. The Colonel brought with him a large palmetto tree which waa presented to him at Charleston. Colonel Lamon had no opportunity to state to the Pres ident tho results of hia mission to Fort Sumter this after noon. An Interview was had this evening, but tho pre cise information Colonel lamon brings, or tho effect it has had upon the President's mind, is not known outside of the Cabinet, excopt as slnoe in dicated in a conversation the President hal with a gentleman, to whom he said that Major An derson was ordered to report with his command at an other place, and would embark with his troops as soon ax the facilities for doing so reached him, which woull bo in a few days. Colonel Lamon does not heeitate to state his experience at Charleston in regard to the modut operandi of reaching Port Sumter. He reached Charleston on Sunday morn *"g, and booked himself as ''Ward H. Lamon, of Vir ginia." Ho did this because he ascertained that be could not reach Fort Sumter without a permit from Governor Pickens, and could not see the Governor until Monday morning, and in order not to make himself a target for the curhus for twenty-four hours, as he would have done had he an nounced himself from any other State, lie was not annoyed until Monday morning, when a delegation of Charlestoniacs called upon him, and inquired If his name was Lamon? Be replied, "Yes, my name is Ward H. lamon. " They asked him if he was a friend of President UneolnV He replied that he was. He was then asked if he had any objection to tell them the object of his mis sion? He said he had objection, and added that he had important business with Governor Pickcns, with whom he was soon to have an Interview, and if the Governor wiabed to state to them the result of the same ho could do so. This put a stop to questions; but a strict watch was kept spon the Colonel, m if he was some Infernal machine that had been thrown suddenly In their midst to destroy them. No insult was ott'ored to him, however, but thou sands of the Charlestonlans assembled to gaze upon the representative and friend of "Old Abe," all wondering whether be was the messenger of peace or war. Oolonel lamon soon obtained an interview with Governor Pickens, and informed the 0 aver nor that he was bearer of despatches from Resident Lincoln to M^jor Anderson, and he wished to be allowed facilities to reach the Fort. Governor Pickens treated Col. Lamon with great courtesy, and promptly Informed him that he should have a steamer in which to proceed to the Fort and Immediately detailed Col. Duryea, one of the Gover nor's stafT, to accompany him. The Governor also assured Col. lamon that he would Issue orders to the Mayor of the city to see to It that he had safe conduct through the city during his stay. Accordingly, everything was provided as indicated, and the Fort was reached. Col. lumon invited Col. Imryen to accompany him Into the Fort, where he was introduced to Major Anderson and the other . officers in Fort Sumter. Colonel lamon and Major Anderson then loft Colonel Dur yea to be entertained by the other officers, and proceeded to private quarters, where sn interview of several hours was I tad, the result of which has been reported to the President, snd will be the subjec t of an official communi cation from the President In a few days Iiespatches received here from Charleston to night aseert that it is well known that Major Anderson has net a week's supplies of provisions on hand, and is out of fuel, and that the proba bility Is the authorities will refuse to allow him longer to purchase supplies from Charleston market. It is believed that Colonel lamon is the bearer ?if Ktmilar Information, and if so it is ea*y to account for the romark made by the l*resideni In congestion to night, as quoted above. Wjbhot;tqn , March 27, 1M1 Col. I Anon, the reputed Mini iter Plenipotentiary or the administration to Mj^or Anderaon and the revolutionary autuoritles of South Carolina, suddenly appeared In the v.-atibule of Willnrd a Hotel thin afternoon. He wu at <*)<>> heart by a crowd of political loungers thai cajj be found at all limes or the day in that locality, and over wkelmed with eager inquiries. Hat the ubiect of their curiosity, although evidently big with State aerreta, maintained an immovable silence, and the only reply they obtained wan a constructive one, that U, what they in ferred from the fart that he carried a symbol of peace? not exactly an olive brauch, but a palmetto twig? which tbey considered a sure indication of a peaceful result of hia mission. Much undue important o haw been uttached to the jour ney of Mr. lainon. ! can Mate positively that he neither ? tailed G?t. Pickens and <.'en Reu-.ircgard as the renre Mutative of the federal government, nor carried any exe cutive lhatructlon* to Muor Anderson. The President ia not quite randy to; lower the dignity of the government by entering upon negotiations with the Southern revotu tiotnats, or dispoeed to act contrary to precedent* , by reading a civilian upon an Important military mission, lite truth la, that Mr. Lamnn went to Char los ton, la com P*n> with another Illinois ,?olltlclan of note, to learn the ttue condition of affairi ui the hotbed or aeceMion by hia wo o oner v. it ions, and give Mr. Lincoln the benefit of hia oliftcrvations. Thia he did, not as an official agent, but n? ike confidential friend of the President. He certainly did not convey either an absolute nor a condition*! order to ?-va u?te to Major Anderson. Cut the information laid by him before the Prryident shortly after hi* arrival will doubtlessly hasten the consummation of the long expect ed emergency of an abandonment. Nr.

Washiikitos, March 27, 1861. The refusal of the President to common icate the cor respondence between the government and Ma^or Ander son is regarded by the Major's friends to be unjult, in asmuch aa It has been charged by some of the organs of the administration that there are appwent discrepancies in his dcspatcltea received before this administration came tnte power and thoae received since. His frtonds, It is understood, will shortly correct the misstatements that have been made against this gallant officer, who has fearlessly done his duty. ? THE DISTRIBUTION OP THE OFFICES. Washisutom, March 27, 1861. All the Territorial appointments had not been sent to tbo Senate up to two o'clock. The Senate, however, finished up most of its business, and at the hour named endeavored to notify the I "resi lient, through a committee, that if he had no more com munications to make the Senate could and would close up their unfinished business and adjourn this evening. But the motion did not prevail. This offended some of the Be ua tors, who left .jeir seats, and the body was without a quorum. After filibustering for two or three boors, the Senate adjourned until to-morrow. At a late hour the President sent twenty-one new ap pointments in, that were not referred for want of a quo rum. The revolutionary spirit in the Senate will compel the republicans to consent to an adjournment without elect ing a Sergeant-at-Armp and Doorkeeper. This will allow the present officers to remain in power until December, if there is no extra session of Congress. The democratic members of the Senate exercise this power by a threat to withdraw from the bodf , and leave the i epublicans without a quorum, If they attempt to re move the democratic officers.

Wa? ewkw, March 27, 1801. THE XfcW TARIKK. Tho adm in Ik tratlon fully realizes the weight of tho incubus saddled upon it by the last Congress iu the shapo of the new tar in'. Even those members of tho Cabinet thai favoiA protective policy no longer conceal thoir ballet' that Us enactment was impolitic at th> 1 resent J inctur< of public affairs, and will prove a most abundant source of domestic and in crnational complications. The Presi dent has doubtlessly wished ere this his Pittsburg ?|>eecb . that contributed indirectly so much to tho passage of the tariff bill unsaid. It njw looks that, with tho prosont peaceable prospect, the Impracticab ly of tho enforce ment of its provisions is moro apt to induce tho admin istration to call an extra session of Congress than tho Southern imbroglio. Secretary Chate is tald to have openly confessed within the hut few <lays, to a pro mi nent New York politician, that in jiis opinion tin new tariff was more likely to diminish than to increase the public revenue. HOW TOM O'RWLf LS rHOVIPLK; FOR I1H KAMI1Y. Among all civilized nations it is a just rule to take care> j a', the public expense, of veterans in civil and military j service. Hence everybody is probably satisfied with the | provision just mado for the old days of that ancient party nag? Tom Corwin. But the Ohio republicans are unable to understand why the whole Corwin family should bo fed and clothed out of the public treasury in consideration of the long raco its head has run on the party arena. Thev cannot help thinking of nepotism, when reminded that his son has been appointed Secretary of Legation ? that two cousins obtained clerkships in departments that it was not Old Tom's fault that a third one wasn't appointed Pot t mister in Hamilton, Ohio, and that his nephew wasn't mado United States Marshal for Ohio. They object' especially, ss the Corwin family embraced the republican faith only after it had become the winning one in their State. TKV MT OKI MH TO MKCCA RKWARDSD. Many, It will be remembered, were tho 'devout repub lican souls that migrated to the muddy Illinois Mecca last winter to prostrate themselves before the powers that were to be. Some doubts were entertained as to tho sue cess of their prayers then and there offered.

Conner, Postmaster at Indianapolis; Ben Eggleston, Postmaster at Cincinnati; C. Dsvlwoo. Consul at Bordeaux. Horace Greeley is the most distinguished among those that will be left out in the coif "oir nnuux KRajrus.'' It was universally conceded last fall that the German vote for I .incoln and Hamlin was large enough to have turned the scales sgainst them if csst for Douglas and Johnson. In the Northwestern States, especially, they held the balance of power, and threw it everywhere In favor of the republicau ticket. Their number and Influence fairly entitled them to one sixth, or at least one scvent*. of the spoils. But what will they get? To their credit b ? it said that there is but a comparatively ?mall sprinkling of represents tlves of their nationality among the horde of pla- e hunt crs that has infested Washington during the 1st* Ave weeks. Of Western applications, also, but few were made by them. But although the total aggregate of German applicants does not excecd one hundred, not one enth of that number has been successful. It is true their Allure Is partially due to the fact that at least one half of them desired foreign missions and consulships But to any one that witnessed the cold shoulder ther re | oelved everywhere here, It must be evident that the dls trlbutors of the spoils had no idea of giving them a fair | share. In Missouri alone, where Frank Blair has interest j ed himself actively in their behalf, will anything like jus | tlce be done to them The few successful ones are Dr. | Koernsteln (Collector of St. Louis), H. Kreismaun (Secre" | tary Prussian I^gtllon), F. Hassan reck (Minister to Rcua | dor), and three or four appointees In different depart ments. The claims of such men as f*. Solger, of Boston | ex-Governcrs Koerner, of Illinois, and Busch, of lows ) John I- Mansfield, of Indiana, and half a doaeo "able edi , tors," were entirely overlooked and it now seems-ss though even Carl Scburz was to be cast overboard. So much for our German friends. ikx RsrmncAN tirPLOMAiw.

When the doors were opeaed, Mr. Hk*< imam, (opp.) of Ky. again moved to take tip his resolution, (ay me if the motion should prevail he would accept Mr. (Hnxman's substitute, which also advise*- that tbe ('resident lor bear from attempting to collect the revenue in the Confederate States. If the Senate were not willing to express an opin i iou, he took it for granted th it ths vote would be against taking up the resoiJtion aad if they intended to express an opinion he took it for gran tea that the vote would be in tbeafiraatlve; hence hefaskod for the yeas and uays, and that the taking up ot the resolution might be considered a teat question. Mr. Bit*, (opp.; of Mtn., was In favor of the resolution, but he thought that Mr. Clirxman's amendment, which j Mi. Hrtckinridge said he would accept, went too far. He did not know what right the Senate had to express their opinion to the lYt* dent as to the collection of the revenue. Mr. Bnk xinKipi.r maid If hia resolution be taken up it , would be for the S? uate to decide whother they would accept Mr Cllngman'a substitute, Mr. Waok, (rep.) of Ohio, hoi?rt that the resolution would he taken up, in order to liave a square t ote.on It. Hi waa ready to give his at anytime. He trusted that they would indicate, not what the President will d?, but what they think he ought to do. He did not pro feiw to know what tbe ITe-idenf's policy will be, but he professed to know it ought to be. Mr. Rm , resuming, ?aid tint tho Senator from Ohio (Mr. Wade) had not diaappointed him. Re ha- 1 always found that Senator nn honest, open hearted and frank man. but the point he made was this: that the Presl dent, by the conatitution. was commander in chief of the army and navy, and that he can, therefore, by his own volition, issue such orders as he may deem neceiaaii ry and may be required; but as to the collection of the r< venue, be deem' d it profor for the Senat? or for him self, as one of tbe Senators, to advise him In matters which real in him by law . Mr Cijjk.uaji, (opp.) of N. C. , was in ravor of the original resolution, but he wanted to go further. He would not ask the Senator from Kentucky to aornpt his substitute If it woull weaken the resolution He wish ed, however, his substitute to he adopted, because he bs | I loved that the ITet-ilent, under the existing laws, has no i ptrwer to eollect the revenue in the Confederals ,-t*tes; } nonce, ho should abstain from the attempt of entertain tag this chimera. Ho ready to express it. Hew ail ed to ir?M a ooiliSion. Mr. Rica Mid, for the rossose already siaiod, the Senate were far oat of their way to advise the I>esi dent. Bo ssked Mr. Breckinridge whether h;s re*oli!i >n extended to Key Wok and the rortugas Shoals; if s>, bo would never/withdraw the troojw from those poets. Mr. Bmomsuwb replied thu the rsao'Uiion advises, under existing circumstances, the withdrawal of the federal troops from the limits of the Confederate State*. He su pposed that tho resolution embraced those points because they were within the limits of the State of Florida. If, however, any Senator chow to move an amendment to exclude tho?? points from tho 'operation of the resolution, it wsuid be a matter of graft aad ro ?(>? t ful consideration. Ho did not consider it essnntial to the Eiblic pesco the trsops should bo withdraw a frim ey Wtst and rortugas, and rather than haaard the de feat of the resolution, bo would bo willing to say that these points ^all i>e excluied by the resolution. It seemed to bim that be must aid that ho dm liked to do to, because be still entertained a ho|>e of a reunion of all tho state*. If thore should ultimately, or unfortunately, bo a permaueut ?ep.i ration, all the troops mud bo withdrawn from all the points now held by the federal government within tbe limits of the Confederate Mates, and from such other States hf may unite with th?rn. He trusted thiit all tlio Stat- K will be reunited on tbe principles of tho old consti tution. If thin should not o.cur, lie would be unwilling to see thone places retaineC on tho principle that Croat Britain holas Gibraltar and places in othor parts of the world? merely as strategic military paiuts. Mr. Rick? Tbe Senat >r baring answered his ?ptestion, he sold be would !ike to know whether it was in order to move an amendment excluding Key West and Tortugas? The Ckair xaid that the amendment was not in order, sh tbo resolution was not yet before the Senate. Mr. Run remarked that if tbe seceded States were de termined to remain out of the 1'iion, bo was in favor of their going tn peace. Hfe would go further. He would give them their limits. He would givo them anything reasonable for tho sake of peace ; but they are not in pos session of Key West and Tortugis and never will b\ Hit go two points are needed for us, and not tor them. Other portions of the country hive an interest in them, and especially tic commerce belonging to tho North, which will never yield these points. Ho would not to give them up under any circumstances. Mr. r *hk, (rep.) of N. H., hoped that tho resolution would not be taken up. They were approaching tbe close of the r ess ion, and if tbe resolution was taken up it would be followed by amendments, and debate might be opened, and eo one could tell wben it would stop. Mr. SmxoxM, (rep.) of K. 1., said that it was not pro per for them to stay here and dobate wben all were anxious to go home. He would not desire a rote to bo taken on the resolution without saying a few words from what had been uttored by Messrs. Douglas and vBreck Inridgo. Tbe country were satisfied what thoir policy w Juld hare been had thev succeeded. Mr. fta Kt'-k . (rep ) of N. J. , opposed taking up the resolution. He did not profess to be very profound in matteis of law, but ho wanted to ooniine himself t > ques tions of constitutional duty. He bad seen no provision which justified the Seuate or gurc them the right to ad vise tho President on the subject. He was a little old fashioned in blsnotions, and Jiouco desired to keep tho several departments distinct, lie was not awaro that it was th?. r duty, by law or precedent, to volunteer thoir advice to the l*residcnt. He was not disposed to profl'or this advicc, because it was none of hid business. Mr. Tri mni'i (rep.) of 111., object in rising was to say that in voting to Uk'i up the resolution he did not regard himself aa committed ono way or another in its passage. Mr. Dot (ilah, (opp. ) of 111. , would vote to tako up the resolution with tho now of offering an amendment to bring it within the scopo it ought to take. Ho thought it would bo wise for the Preai dent to withdraw the troops from Fort Pickens, as be understood they will be or havo been withdrawn fi am Pert Sumter. These were the only f?>rte in the Confederate States not occupied by the government at Montgomery. These were the only places which could tend to a collision ; but the resolution goes further. It ao vines the President to withdraw the troops from all poiiits in tho Confederate. Slates. The Confederate States being a revolutionary government, can claim only what tbey occupy. He was willing, tinder existing circum stances, that Forts Sumter mid I'ickens should he given up. lbey wiiio local, and noither of them protected anything but the harbors, which, being in possession of the revolutionary government, we should not object to letting them go, unless we intend to bold them as a basis of nr'tiary operations. There was no good in holding these jorts, a i tbey were sotirce3 of constant irritation. Mr. I)?>?i nri>:, (rep.) of Wis., said if debate was open I ed it would last several days. He was t.ieroforo against : taking up the resolution. His vote must not bo regarded as a test rote. Mr. B'u i ki-kjix.i. remarked that be did no assume that this shall bo a test vote, but suggested that it might be ao regarded, although he preferred s direct vote on the resolution. As to a debate for several days, this was a pretext not to take up the resolution at all. Ho presumed that all tbe Senators were prepared to vote without dtacusaion. Mr. OorMMitti, (rep ; of Vt. , remarked that the Senators on the republican side had not said anything. Mr. BitiHJttsRtiH.K replied that tbey bad had tbe am p'e?t opportunity for that purpose. Mr. wauk hoped tbe resolution would be taken up, and as there was very little else u> do they should hare discussion. He did not know what the almijilatratioo lioltcy might he, bat he entertained very strong opinions and was anxious to express them. Ho did not hesitate to say that tbe Senate ought, under present circum stances, to express their opinion Wears aco ordinate braic.h of the government, and the President's ad Viseia, and In his judgment it was just and proper tn the present emergency that tbey should express their opinicn in full, not only to the President but to the people of tbe United States. He had uo concealment to make. He was anxious that this subject should receive full discussion now. Seven States have gone out of the Tnion and are domineered over by a usurpation. The Copic there have bad no voice in the government which s been erccted, but military despotism tramples their rights under foot. If tbev bad the power they would call upon us le vindicate their rizbts, and tbo constitution clothes us with authority to do it. Mr. Pdtu.HT, (opp.) o: Ind , commended the Senator from Ohio I oi his zeal and frankness tn expressing h'.s conviction That senator is in favor of enforcing tbe federal authority in every seceded State He was entitled to tbe thanks of tlio country for expressing bis opinions We bad reached a point when wo should advise the Presi dent what should he his policy during the absence of tbo Senate. There ought to be no dodging. He thought the President was a m..n of too much prudence and patriot ism to undertake to enforce the federal authority tn the leceeed States. Mr. Itoouma understood that it mm erpccted that tbe Senate would adjourn to morrow. It was Impossi hie to retain ? quorum here for debate, bosidei there Wiia executive business to be transacted. Mr. Cou-iurx denied the |x>wer thus to advise the President. The constitution stiya that th- President m ay do two things, by and with the advise and content of th o Senate. First, relative to tn< appointment*, and secondly , with regard to treatx a , and there the powor ends. Mr. liWKiMtnM.K did not see why they could not ex- ] press aa opinion without <le>>at<\ The .-enate were in possession of all the fact*, a* well as ib>- country. An ? opinion was worth moie M tbe country than dl)<cussiori. Mr. Nrsvnii, (rep.) of Oregon, would rote lor the reso i lutlon, in order to give Mr. wade an opi>ortiinity io un j bam bin elf, an<! he should take what that Senator bad paid as nn indication of wbat the policy waa to btf pur cued. He ww about to return heme to Oregon, and when he rtfccbtd there ten thousand questions would be pro pounded to him as to the oourae of the ad utinUL ration. They would want to know whether It waa peace or war. ! j If he should t?ll them that be did n<>t know they would | auk him what he wm Rent to Washington lor (la ,:'.ier , He was one of those who could not be persuaded that he could make a man hi- friend by thrusting a buyouct into his stoasucb (lAi.ghter ) He repeated that the people of tbc I'uclBccoaat want the Information. Mr. Clark movod that the Senate go lnt? executive aes f ion Mr. HRix-KatnuMM asked for the ye* s and naya on bit motion to take up his resolution. He supposed that this might be considered a sort of test. Mr. IMxos (opp.), of Conn., said If tho reaolution f>e taken up, he must express his views. The Senate voted? the result being 1? to 10, no quorum being present. Motions were made to adjourn aud 40 into executive session. ? At tbls period there was no quorum and the Senate voted. ^iggestlona were made to take a recess and to direct the Sergeant at Arms to go after the absentee*. Mr. liRKCKijiiutuii. after, as he said, having given the republicans an opportunity to confirm their nominations and having fully discharged his own duty, be mured that the Penats ad journ tine dir. This was disagreed to. There was much incidental debots on these motions. Finally, the .Senate adjourned till to morrow. AFFAIRS AT CHARLESTON.

ADMIH8ION OP NORTHERN STATES INTO THE .SOUTHERN CONFKDERaT/ON. {From the Charleston Mercury, March 26.] As the new constitution has been framed, there In nothing to prevent the admission of Northern States Into the new confederation. A vote of two-thirds Is all that to requisite; and, after the accession of Vtogtsia, Mary land, North Carolina, Tennessee, Kentucky, tafeowl and Arkansas. there Is likely to be no grent dlillculty In ob taining (his vote, in thus constructing the fundamental law, of course, a struggle has occurred in the secret sessions of the Montgomery Congress, in which tb we re fusing to close the d'>or against the reception of anil s'avery States have achieved a victory. Thus the policy of ultimately admitting the untt slave States of the North west ttrst, and afterwards Pennsylvania, New York, ctiera, Is obviously the programme or prevailing idea of the Montgomery Congress. The Union Is not to be re constructed on Urms of the old constitution It to to be reorganized on the new busia, and we ate in danger, If the views o? the constitution makers are carried Into practice, of being drugged back eventually Into political afflliut Ion with the Mates and peoples from whom we have J sat cut loose. Now, some mar think im hypocritical and oapt.'ous l? seeing anything dtoa+.-p-oable, or in finding fault at all, when matters appear to be progrsaslng satisfactorily. Hut a reference to the future must govern us in the pre sent if as would control event*. It is shortsighted and pusillanimous to cover up from vlsw stubborn facts, which, however unplcasanl to know, our future peace snd prosperity nrg< us not to over loos, but to strive and remedy. It has been round that, in the oonstrnciioh of a great rbip, the unwise Insertion of one stldk of worm eaten timber bus involved her fate with tb? loss or hundreds of lives and million* of property So a defect of grave character, tike this of the new QmUMMi may entail ti|?in the peoples of the Southern States the difficult. uid dangers of again going through the same struggle from which we are emerging, and perhaps may ultimately wreck the hopes of republi can liberty throughout the world. It to too lam, and south Carolina is not the Mate to resist the embodiflMnt of this Imprudent provision In the constitution. AM it is almost hopeless to expect that, after the ifuwlmi of the border States, the fundamental tow can, without undue commotion, be so amended as to estsmish tho policy of a strictly pro slavery Confederacy. The plank Is in our ship, and we have but to make the beat of n. We can only endeavor, by the a) ?plication of the prtMr vatory preparations or corrective knowledgo and the In stilment of sound, who.i som? and purifying viewt of stateamanshlp, to ward off the peril and escape the evils that may result from what has been done and cannot obw be avoided. It Is therefore, not to oppose the adoption of tho Con stitution by South Carolina that we broach the subject, * 'it simply, and at once, to oppose the idea and policy of this new kind of reconstruction or reorganisation, and to build up and fortify public opinion throughout the Oomib. ss far ssws can, against using tho discretion that will be given our Congress under tho proviso of a two-thirds vote. Kor, if sufficient time he allowed the people of the Southern States to realise, under their own government, the amount of secwity , prosperity and power attainable, without connection with the North, except by trsniy, we hare great hopes that they will outgrow present pro clivities, which we are fain to consider weak and aawtos, and will firmly refuse admission to all Northern States, whose people differ from as to radically and to such hos tile degree in regard to our domestic institutions, and whose puolc faith must render all paper constitutions and parchment obligations utterly nugatory and worth less tor all the purposes for which laws are useful.
