Tho corps of Sappers and Miners left here this morning, and to day three of the batteries now in this city received ordeia to leave forth with, all being required to report at Fort Hamilton, New York. That these troops aro destined for Fort Pickens there can be no doubt. In lees than a week the country will learn whether we have a government or not. The Home squadron is to be increased and ordered South,and Penracola and other Southern ports will be blockaded. Fort Pickens is not in need of additional men, but wiU Boon be in want of supplies, which will be furnished forthwith. It is believed that General Sumner has been ordered to New York, and perhaps South, to direct the movement of the troops, aa he left hero very suddenly. General Scott's private secretary also left yesterday on abort notice for New York. Several interviews have been had to day between the President and Secretary of War, and the latter with General Pcott. Orders have been issued to day in the Navy Depart ment to the several bureaus to an extent that almost precluded everything else. Every available naval ahip will be called home. Those on the C*st of Africa, It is ?aid, cannot be recalled without violating the treaty with England requiring the United States to keep at least eighty {tins there. The Cabinet were in session Unlay for aeveral hours, ?ad Gen. Soott was present. Among the Important questions discussed was the recent affair in St. Do mlrgo. The foreign Ministers here express the opinion that the Spanish government will not countanance th oonrse of the Governor General of Cuba in sending troofm from Havana to St. Domingo to austaln the Danish flag. The Spanish Minister asserts that his despatches from Madrid have contained no reference to the subject Report says that the British and French Ministers have indicated to the Secretary of State, that If the United States should interfere In the matter, thu their governments will keep hands off. It Is argued In high official circles here that the best policy for the administration is to inaugurate a war with Spain or Mexico, or both, a* the best means for averting Internal strife. A difficulty Is Raid to exist in regard to the approprM* Hon for the construction of the seven new staim a loops. It is that the money was appropriated for the fiscal year ending 1st of July next, and that It cannot be used until on and after that time. This Is one of the reasons why an extra sees toe of Congress cannot be prevented. The administration Is crippled ic a similar manner by other appropriation#. When It is offltiaHy demonstrated that any one of the thirty four States of ths United States has been 'mrarttf by Mexico, the government will forthwith take immediate steps t? repel the invaders. The I'realdent to-day seemed to be laboring under a de presston of spirits. He justly oomplatns that Congress ad journed leaving him almost powerless to act His only ob jection to calling them together row is tho fear that they will come here and proceed to discuss some compromise measure, or undertake to investigate some unknown mys tery, or quarrel over the tariff. instoaJ or transacting the business actually necessary to carry on the government. Instructions were to day given to ail the heads of Bu reaus .n several of the departments not to hold any fur ther oitlcial communication with any persons res Id It* in tho seceded State Wa?u*orox, March 3, IM1. Great activity and commotion are still visible In both tho Navy and War Departments to-day. Commodore Str.nglum and Commodore Case were ordered this morn ing to Boeton to Lake command of the steam frigate Min nesota, forty guns, row at th it port. Her offlcers have been ordered by telegraph to report at once to the Com modore. She is to pr"<-e^ to the mouth of the Missis sippi. <? ? The Perry and Powhatan arc also ordcrod to the same point. * Ibis looks very signified. There are various rumors and surmises as to this sudden naval movement. Special orders have also been despatched to the Cum berland. Pocahontas and Dolphin. nowalHnmpton Roxds. It is more than prob-iole to at th" g n-ornmijft intend to blockade tho mouth of the M^lsMppi, thuTpre venting goods fr^m cnte-lrg that point.

A Cabinet officer avowed to day to a friend that a storm was coming. The Cabinet meetings yeeterJay and to-day are known to have been almowt exclusively devoted to the consideration of Southern affairs, Military move ments and preparations are going on in every direction, In line, it is but too plain that the pissivo attitude of the administration during the .aat four weeks wj? but % stroke of political cunning, and taken and preserve ~>y with a view to the spring elections and the new loan. The former now being over, and the Utter negotiated, the true intentions of the Executive in regard to the prac tical! part of the disunion arc about being reveiloJ. THE EIGHT MILLION GOVERNMENT LOAN. Washing to*, April 3,1S61. Contrary to the expectation of bidders, the Secretary of the Treasury has decided to-day to accept no oiler bo low ninety-four for the eight million loan. The amount, therefore, determined upon is only about three millions one hundred thousand. A bid was made this morning for the una* tided p >r tion of the United States loan, amounting to near six million dollars, by a party o( New York bankers, inclnd lng litters. Clarke, Dodge & Co , Meeans. Morri son, Sou & Morrison, Messrs Livermore, Clew* \ Co., and others, through H. H. tioodmou, ol Wall strent, at a 1 Tac tion over 94. Secretary Chase, upon a careful considera tion of the law autlior.zing the loan, decided not to accept private bids after the award was made. In this he his re versed the decision of Secretary Thomas, made on a similar occasion, when ho gavo to the It ink of Commerce i and others on their bid tho amount or go\ernaieut stock which was not bid for as high as tho limit acceptcd. Secretary Chase thinks it iB his duty, under the law, to advertise and will do so forthwith. The warlike movements and rumors of today, however, lead many j bidders to express themselves gratitied that their b.ds were cot acceptcd. This decision of Mr. < hm;e lias given great dissatisfat tlon,and is regarded as a financial trick which must damage tbe government in selling future loaus, inas much as if any bid was accepted, it is regardod as a vio lation of the spirit of the advertisement to reject any bid unlet* unreasonable. Had the whole amoant been accepted, it would not have made a difference of over one half per cent to tho government. Secretary Chase and assistants yesterday continued their labors In connection with the new loan until after midnight, and they progressed so far as to render tho Issue of stock to successful bidders in the course of to day possible. Such promptness and Industry is unpa ralleled In the annals of the Treasury department. NEWS FROM FORT PICKENS. WASKnidToir, April 3,1881. Lieutenant Gilman, one of the officers at Btrt Pickens, arrived here this evening from Pensacola, having left there on the 31st of March. He states that no reinforce ments had been landed from the Brooklyn or any other vessel, but that she had gone to Key West for supplies. Be states tliat the Confederate troope were arriv ing thero in large numbers, and In a few days daya they would have Ave thousand well provisionod He says It la imitossible for the government to land troop* at Fort Pickens without tbe confederate authori ties knowing it, and whenever they attempt it hostilities will at once commence. He says he met large numbers of troops on the route Tor Pensacola; th%'. General Bragg will not wait the action or tho Washington government much longer before they oommence operations. He says the Impression there was that Fort Pickens was to bo abandoned. Such assurcuces were given out there. VIRGINIA ON THE VERGE OF SECESSION. WiiBuofox, April S, 1861. Intelligence received here this evening from Richmond, states that most strenuous efforts are being made to piss the secession ordinance. The Union men have thus far been able to hold their own, but should the administra tion continue to concentrate more troops at Fort Monroe, and at other points In the border States, and attempt to reinforce Fort Pickens, there are several Union men in the Convention that will go over to the secession party, giving them a maioi ity. A gentleman, who ha? Josl arrive 1 from Richmond, makes this statement. Ho communicated these facU to Mr. lincoln this evening. Tbe continued pre pence of Major Ben McCullough in Richmond, Va., vitwed in connection with the call for a 8< cession Convention there on the 18th inst., excites auch interest in Washington, especially in army slrclos An unfounded report wa<- ailoat here this morning that one of the newly appointed mail agents for Eutorn \ tr ginia had been violently dealt with by a seoassion mob It originated in the ract that a notice had been wrved pome days ago on a Mr. Brure, who runs on tt>?

Wjjuuaaioi, April 3, l^tJl , Captain ?3. V.

Abraham P. Ely has been appelated Special Mail Agent for New York, vice Warner, removed. Despatches were re:clvcd hero to day from the Col lector at Now Orleans, stating lb it one hundred and thir ty vessels were on their way to that port from foreign ports, loaded with merchandise. Th>' reoepts fivm duties are increasing daily, and aro already very large. Mr. FTa, of the Treasury Department, has gone to Mo bile on government financial business. It is ascertained that the French Consuls in the Confe derate States have recsived instructions direct from France, instead of through tbe Resident Minister bere. in relation to the facilitation of Southern commerce with that empire. Although no official notification of the coming of French and Knglish fleets has been received bere, gen tlemen in prominent positions are satisfied that their movements aro in close connection with tho observa tion of Southern political events. Minister Gorwin has been tendered the sloop of-war Cumberland, now iitting out at Norfolk, to take htm to Mexico. It is expected that he will leave on the 16th Inst. Should that vessel not then be ready he may be conveyed thither in tho steamer I'owhattan. Sir Charles Wyke, British Minister, will arrive in Mexico about the 1st of May. # The Mexican question receivef special consideration by tho administration, and an immediate treaty with that government is one of the objects of the mission. The Spanish fleet which was to have been sent to the Gulf of Mexico will be delayed until furthor Instructions can be received from Madrid. Minister Clay was on Monday disconnected from the Peruvian mission, as tbe government evidently disap proves of the course of the preceding administration, which suspended diplomatic relations between the two countries. Tbe indications are that these will at no dis tant day be resumed. * IJiTTKK KKOM OBI. SAM ll6l W05. We learn from a reliable source that Postmaster Gene ral Blair has received a letter from Governor Houston, Of Texas, in which the administration is exhorted to main tain the Union at all hazards, and strengthen the Union sentiment in the South by asserting the federal authority with all means at its command. The hero of San Jacinto furthermore, expressed himself determined not to sur* render to the secessionists, but to adhere to the Union to the last. It is stated that tho suggestions of tbe letter were discussed in the Cabinet meeting yesterday, and that some of the military movements now going on reeul* from them. Advices represent a conflict between Hous ton and tbe disunionists to be Imminent. TH> WBKTKKX m'SlCIPAL SLWTIOXm. A number of republican politicians from St. Louis, Cin clnnati and Cleveland arrived here to-day. They all agree in attributing the anti republican victories at tbv late elections in their cities to the demoralisation of their party, produced by the paosive do nothing policy of the administration in reference to tbe Southern imbroglio Their demonstrations are fierce and loud.

The news of the dtaeovory of the gold diggings In \ al dlvla is fully confirmed In some instances from ten to twelve dollars l?r day have been taken from the diggings. The Valparaiso Mercurio, speaking of the universal re sources of theT?outh. says ?'-Judging from the geological formation of thoae lands, thoy cannot fail to contJn a groat quantity of minerals, covered at present by a layer of vegetable oarth, the richness of which is apparent In the gold washed away by the and aJao thoae portions whtre tho roughness of the ground doea JDOt allow the vegetable earth to collect, and where rich veins can easily be i ^over^.
