THK BLOCKA HE AND OUR TRHATIIS WITH FOREIGN POWERS. Wi.?iiiN iTON, April 27, 1861. a"ine < xcitement has been produced in diplomatic circles, growing out of th< pvdamation of the President ("irrcnga block.nle of the Southern pi-ts. It appear* that ? blockade, to be respected by foreign Powers, must not only b<i effective, but that due net Ice must be given of such intention to their representatives. With Brazil aid all South American governments, a notioe of niroty <iajs ii required under treaty. But this bns not br on given 1 y our government. Heace con slgnirenta of '-oflfee and other natural products do s'grrd for Feu', hern perl:< are delayed In their transposition to that porti?n of the country, the merchants net belrg satisfied of the effects of immediate bloi kade. It has therefore become neoos=ary that sped flc inquiries be mado or the fodtral government in rela tion to this subject, eo that troaty righ's and privlle?* be not damiged Tho foreign Ministers will insist that the stipulations shall be respected and observed, other wise raval forces will bo despatched hither as a means of foreign piet' ction The delicacy of tho question is appa rent , ucd from what is known may involve serious c on rrquercs ti all concerned, at alt evonta produce trouble now, a? -veil as in the future. I THE PROBABLE ATTACK ON WASHINGTON. Pii:i_aokuhia. April 119, 1881. A gentltman, who has just arrived here from Wilming l9U) North Carolina, hiving left there on Friday, and who was fit Richmond ou Faturday, stites that tho people of North Carolina were all up in arms, and wero prepar j ing to come North w.th peveral thousand troops for tho purpose, as Governor Ellis informed hitn,of nuking an . attack upon Wafchingtou. The day that ho left Gov. Kills . showed him a despatch , which ho had just retired from j Mootgimory, stating th&l sotne Ave thousand troops , were on their way to loin those of North Carolina, which j were about to leave for Richmond, and that It was the purpose of the Confederate government to make an at Wck without a moment's delay , that if they were to at- j Utk it, it must be dene before tho federal govern- ' mciii. hud concentiated a large force at Washington. My informar* states th.it be convert*! with Governor Letcher on Saturday morning, and that Gov. I>etc!ier told him it was tho purpose of tho. Southern States to make the attack at once on the oupital. Fie (Ix>tcher) had ad vised agauist it, but the Cunfodcrato government were for 1 octant attack. He skjs he has no doubt in his own mind that the at tack will be made very soon, ar>d at several points at the fame time, lie rays that every little village was bristling wlih bayonets, and tuat ' the people were per fectly trantlc. He says, further, that Governor Fills showed him a despatch from Pensacola, of th) 26th. from General Bragg, staling that no attack upon Fort Pilk"tt8 up to that time h.?l been made. It was not the purpose of Bragg to moke the attack foi some timo. RBrORTED RELEASE OF GEN. HARNEY. Wasitwiroji, April 29, 18?l. Tho Alexandria G<urtU says that General Ix* has or dered thr release of General Harney, who w m stopped at Harper s Ferry on his way to Washington And mentions as rumor that Jefferson LHvis la to come to ni<'tim<>nd this week, and that Vice President tHophsns hai return ed to Montgomery. A rumor having starts.! thai a battery had been thrown up by the Virginians rn the height* below Fort Washington, on the Potomac river, an actual examination was yesterday ma le of the ground there and for a mile or two all around, and nothing of the k'nd w ? anywhere discoverable. Tne Charleston Mrevry earnestly protests against the advice of cortaln Siuthern journals, which urge an im mediate assault on Washington and its occupa'ion as tho capital of the Confederate States. Among the letters recently received a', the PostOtllie Department was one from a Han th Carolina pistmastsr, countermanding orders for stamps, and refusing to as %k? his returns, saying he wlil attend to this business wbu Postmaster Goneral Reagan shall reach Washington. Many of the official letters sent bltber bear on the c*?T?er a representation of the Confederate tlag. Gentlemen from Vltglnia give It as their opinion that the ordinance of secession will Co affirmed by over one hunored thousand majority. THE WAR MEASURES OF THE A0MLNF8TRA TION. WAMPi.vdron. April 29, 1891. It Is reported tliat the President has carr'nd into effort the purpose of which I advised you last night, by direct ing the enrolment of forty thousand volunteers for three years' service, of twenty Ave thousand regular troops for Ave years, and of eighteen thousand sa.iori for the nmy for Ave years, the usual term This will probably be done, but no order has yet been issued. The flrst In thi field under this new order are two young lawyers of Bos ton, Messrs. Wilder Dwight and G. L. Andrews, a gradu ate of West Point in 1MI. Th<>ee gentlemen, who arrived here last Saturday, left for homo this morning, armed with written authority to raise a regiment In Mawaehu sett* for service daring tho war.

Be mre gar.t. The government is about to establish an arm >ry, simi lar to that formerly at Harper's Ferry, at Rock Laiuud, niwois. An examination made of the heights at the Whits House betow Mount Vernon and vicinity, dispelled the rumor that formications ha t been erected there. The troops called out by the order of to-day are all ad ditional to the 76,000 already required, bo that the whole cumber called for by the government thus far is?

Ihe committee from Now York city, cotudstin^ of w. M. Evarts, Judge Pierrepont and Judge Vanderpuui, whose business you know, arrived here lost evening, and were closeted with the 1'resident to day. Office seekers receive little attention. An applicant for a consulate waa informed by Governor Seward this morning that no more appointments of that clt?s would bo tna lo till travel Northward was less obstructed than at presout. Parades have been going in all day. The Rhode Islaud regiment marched up from the Aaseual, where the men who came in the Bienville remuiue.l over last night, to the Patent Office, where th<y are quartered, followed by their own l irg; baggago wngois, drawn by their own horres, and by led bortes for relays.

B? was charged with endeavoring to raise a company for the S>uthem army. He was a foreman of brlckmakers, ard without property. The testimony respecting the aifair Is con lining, but, on the whole, hears against the soldiers, and the jnry brought in a verdict of simple homicide. T >e corporal .r. H. Murphy, and the men, eleven In number, have bcon arrested for trial, the civl! authorities being assisted by a compaoy oT United States iroops detailod for the pur - rope. The affair is in unfortnnat ? one. Colonel James P.
