Gov dart*?The Farmers' and Mechuuice' Bank offers its services to the government to tho fall extent of its abdffy. A- ui RCER, ITtsiaent. Several New York regiment*. are expected to be here in a few days. It is the intention to throw twenty-I've thousand men into this city as soon as possible. in, said .are mnsterlDg in Western Virginia, aua will be ready to move, upon the call of Gov. I/etcher, in support or tbe government. Hon. John Co vole has offered Governor Ourtln $50,000 of the loan authorized by Pennsylvania to arm and equip the troops ordered rrom that rtate. A elcgation of Pittsburg merchants have made a eimi lar tender. The War Department, by telegraph to-day, accepted tho offer of Governor bprague, of Rhode Island, of aregi-ient. Ho was requested by the Secretary to send them to Washington without delay. The First and Second regime'-is of the Districtof Orlum bia have tendered the r services to the govern meat. W.^mjruTow, April II, 1S01. The administration is preparing with extraurduary energy to carry out tho policy indicated in the Pros: dential proclamation. All its members are fully pervaded with tho conviction that the rrganizauon of tho govom mcnt depends upon tho result of tbe struggle inaugurated with the bombardment of Fort Sumter, aud that te honor and dignity demands the crushing out or the Southern rebellion. Hence avwry nerve is being stretched to strike effective blows. The revolutionists will have quite as much war as they can possibly desire. The enthusiastic rally of tb" freo .States in support of war measures has imparted, both to tho President aud his constitutional advisors, ilm strong- st possible coo fldsnoe in a final triumph of law and order over anarchy and revolution It lias relieved them of ail apprehensions aa to the end of the present bloody beginning, and gives vigor and promptness to their action. Tbe bead of the War Depart in on t and the Onmmwider in Chief have entered upon he gigantic task of organiz ing an army of nearly a hundred thousand men with re markable zeal They expect to have tl'ty thousani me' in fighting trim In thirty days. An immense amount of preliminary work was done by them and their assistants during the last foitj eight hours Washington is rapidly wuming tbe aspect of avast military camp. Tho streets are crowded with regulars aud vdunteers, and warlike din resounds in t\ try di roctlon No moie resignations of army or naval officers will be v copied after ibis. Recusants will bo iguomiaiouslj stTickcr from the roil, or court martialled, m occasion may require. Ample measures will he forthwith taken by the govern ment for tbe protection of tho federal forts, arsenals and armories in Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky and Mis souri. fia-sius M Clay arrived from Kentucky thic evening. He thinks the Union party ascendant in his State, but fears any cotiliot between the Unionists and Ki'SIS. ihe a.mir.islrat'oc ha? received assurances from em: nent financiers in ''ennsyivania, New York and New England that it will be reallJe furnished with all tbe meats liter !y t. bo wanted m the present crisis. The attituue of the border slave States is watched wit peinfi ? anxiety by rbe adminirtration. W.vsunratow, April 15.1851. Ttie issuing of tbe President's proclamation will, it is said, he followed by declaring martial law iu the District ol' Columbia. Those c ppogod to such a step on tbe part of the President deny bis right to do so. They assert that without tbe consent of Congress he has -0 power or au thority, and that he will be liable to fine and in>i>each ment, as In cose of Gen. Jackson. The President will take tho reepoLSlbility, however, regardless of consequeoces. JTe says ho has Indubitable ev idenee that there are a lar?A secessionists In the city, and that every precautionary measure must be adopt ed to resist their lnliueuoo and crush them out. Tho Impression is very general that there are sixty or seventy spies, who make it their business to loiter about in crowds for the purpose or ascertaining who among the army and navy officers, and citizens also, are dlaloyal to the government. ' The time has, therefore, arrived when tho people of tLia District must show their hands. There is no doubt that a largo majority of the old reeidenta of the city are with the South, and will Join with thim in their struggle with the North. Many have already taken thoir position; others will fol low, and we shall soon know how the matter stands. The administration la determined to draw the lineg closely. Will the bonier slave Stages respond to the call of the 1 "resident, and oidor out the militia? This question is asked on all sides. Advices received here this evening from Richmond, states that Virginia will refuse to re spond. (lovernor Letcher la, and has been all along, a strong Union man. Whether the events of the last few days 1ms changed him 14 upt *rom Mwyknd, fcontradiotory reports are received. ITio impressf j j, ih*i Bhe will respond, although the ef forts v l( probably be made to prevent her doing to. It said that there are several thousand men in Halt I more, already armed and equipped, and that large accessions are daily being madt, to prevent troops orosslng ber borders. These reports come well authenticated. In Baltimore the Collector and Postmaster, and, In fact, all the Important offices, have been given to out and (hit Union men. Nothing reliable has been rcootvrd to-day from Tort Pickens. The government believe that reinforcement* have been thrown Into that fort, although no official la teiMgesoe has been received to that efleet. Ac vices received to-day from Charleston, states that a portion of tho force now In that city will be at once despatched to PmsaooLa. There will, however, be a large torce retained at Charleston, In the event of any attempt by the government to force an entrance into the harbor. l'bere aepmn to be little doubt, 00 the part of Gen. Bragg ar.d tho confederate troops, on their being able to take Fort Pickens in much shorter time than was requir ed to take Fort Sumter. The loss of Hie will be fearful oh both sides. WjHIIlvktov, April 18, 1861. Recruiting is going on bore rapidly. There are about two thousand eight hunorod men already ourulled In this city. Several new companies of regulars have arrived within twenty-four hours Maryland responds promptly, It is said, to the requtal tioo upon ber for three thousand troupe. Governor Curttn being here, received himself the re quisition of the Prosidcol upon Pennsylvania lor thirteen thousand men, aud hss this morning telegraphed an order for mustering two rcgtmouU of one thousand men nach into the service foithwtin As Governor Curtln passed through Philadelphia, ho was waited upon by several gentlemen, rt prison ting the pi incipal banks in Kmtern sail Western Pennsylvania, tendering their entire Limn clal euppurt to the diate in He pledges to sustain the government. There Is no want, of means or men. It w said that Vlrifliua will respect to the I'reejiicnt's call for live thousand men Some duubl this, but there Is evidently a loyal spirit springing up In the old Do minion against inn site rpt to coerce the federal govern meat, a part of which Vt.glnia still claim* to be.

Every public place was crowded thia morning at an oarly hour, some person reading tbe morning papers o?n tainirg the latest news fiom the seat of war There is no deny log the fact that a war spirit was ntai ..'eeted oo all sides. The offers to volunteer are numerous. The regular proceedings of tbe Legislature are lost sight of, and all other matter* sink into Inslgnlffcanco whon on pared with this universal topic In all circles. It la the last subject at night, the first in the morning, at the breakfast table; and, In fact, in every quarter where two men get together, nothing else la thought or talked of.

It, however, waa plainly to he seen that, a cumber wonld go aga-ust tbe bill. Yet, on the otner hand, tome of the warmest advocate* of the measure were among tbe democratic member* of tho Legislature, who declared thtt their country called, and they should not let party or tayiict oalltlee stand in the way of responding.

As the calm succeeds the storm so the public mind has now become In a measure set'lod af or the wild outburst of feell: g wh'ch the etirrlrg events of Friday and Saturday evoked. The white heat of excitement a over, and nice are calmly consider!! g axil weighing those events, and endeavoring to divine the r results, tbat they may not terminate :n civil strife and fraternal bloodshed. Conversation on the all absorbing tepid of the day is no bnger carried on In a vehement, impul sive manner, but in subdued 'ones and with gloomy looks* Even those who have been the warmest upholders of acd sympathizers with the South declare, m spite of their feelings, that the action of tho 8outnern confederacy .a attacking Kurt Sumter has b-eu hasty and rash, and that tho digu ty of the federal government should be upheld by a prompt resentment. To ihiH feeling the proclamation of the President has given a splittof enthusiasm, and mec, heretofore apa thetic and Indifferent, do not hesitate to boldly proclaim the necessity of tbe measures contained In that document. The news from the South has been verified, scueb to the regre. of many who would have pre ferred it untrue, and tho sober suoond thought of tbe people has led tbem to tbe opinion that the proclamation of tbe President was i nly just, in v -w of the emergency which celled It forth, acd that ..'-a military movement to be set on foot by it throws tho responsibilities of war and bloodshed upon the Suuth for having inaugurated extrtme measures. Yesterday our citizens were somewhat surprised to see tho national ensign floating over the public buildings, hotels and the City Hall, wbere, in aIdition, the munici pal Hag was Hying. Over tho Hkkxld establishment, and the offices of the other newspaoers the American oolora were displayed, and tbo gala appearance of the cKy created no little surprise in view of the oocditijn of affairs. It transpired that tbe d splay took place in ac cordance with a request telegraphed oy Governor Mor gan to the police authorities. MEETING IN FAVOR OF THE ADMINISTRA TION. A meeting of citizens in favor of sustaining the a imln.s trution In repressing the Houtnern revolution was held at two o'clock, yesterday afternoon, at So. 3d Pine street.

MeCuty and .lames M. Halstcd. Resolutions were adopted urging tho necess tv of plac ing tho State militia en a war footing, and making <iis adequate appropriations for that purpoae. On motion, a committee was appointed to make all tha arrangements for the public mooting. UNION DEMONSTRATION AT THE HALL OF RECORDS. A meeting was held last evening, at about haf-past seven o'clock, in front of tbe H?ll ?f Records n the City Hall Park. About two hundrel person* were present, tbe smallnees of the numbers doubtless xrrietng from tbe state of the weather. The assembly was address* d by Mr. Walker, who elated thai the meet ng was but tbe preliminary of a much larger ono to be held in a few days.

The sta'ement that toe Secreta ry of W-ur of tbe Southern Confederacy bad thrrateaed ta have the Confederate Hag Hying over Washington by tha 1st of May, was received with groans and cries of ?'Never, never."
