ttitude of rebellion. Toombs had also been bringing one of his Northern admirers in subserviency to his feet, in this wise:--Early in January, it became known to the Superintendent of the Metropolitan Police of New York, who were not under the control of the Mayor, that large quantities of arms, purchased of Northern manufacturers and merchants, were going southward. It was resolved to rut a stop to traffic that would evidently prove injurious to the Government, and late in the month January 22, 1861. nearly forty boxes of arms, consigned to parties in Georgia and Alabama, and placed on board the steamer Monticello, bound for Savannah, were seized by the New York police. The fact was immediately telegraphed to Governor Brown, at Milledgeville. Toombs was there, and took the matter into his own hands. He telegraphed January 24. as follows to the Mayor of New York:--Is it true that arms, intended for, and consigned to the State of Georgia, have been seized by public authorities in

o the residue by bayonets. --New York Tribune, November 7, 1860. When, in June, 1865, Alexander H. Stephens applied to President Johnson for pardon, he alleged that, among other reasons for espousing the cause of the rebellion, was the fact that the utterances of the Tribune, one of the most influential of the supporters of the Republican party, made him believe that the separation and independence of the Slave-labor States would be granted, and that there could be no war. On the 22d of January, 1861, Wendell Phillips, the great leader of the radical wing of the Anti-slavery party, in an address in Boston, on the Political lessons of the hour, declared himself to be a disunion man, and was glad to see South Carolina and other Slave-labor States had practically initiated a disunion movement. He hoped that all the Slave-labor States would leave the Union, and not stand upon the order of their going, but go at once. He denounced the compromise spirit manifested by Mr. Seward and Ch

erned about the oppressive and unconstitutional legislation of 1850 for the rendition of fugitive slaves. In his speeches during his journey from his home to the national capital there was no suggestion of compromise or of a surrender of any Republican position. When he reached Washington, all hope of the passage of compromise measures vanished. Among his titles to national gratitude, none is greater than his fidelity in this eventful moment of our history. Sumner wrote to John Jay, Jan. 22, 1861:— I am much more afraid for our cause than for our capital Events march, and I do not see how the secession of thirteen or fourteen States can be arrested. But pray keep the North firm,—this is my daily prayer. To F. W. Ballard, January 26:— This is a trying ordeal. History will protect the men who now stand firm. No compromise will now hold. Mr. Lincoln is perfectly firm. He says that the Republican party shall not with his assent become a mere sucked egg, all shell<

en scarcely restrained, thus far under the administration of Mr. Buchanan. Will it not in such a case, be at once resorted to under that of Abraham Lincoln? In such a conflict, unless Virginia was false to her own pledges and to every Southern imminent, she must aid the seceding States; and a bloody civil war, from which she had vainly endeavored to escape, by the surrender of her rights for the sake of remaining in the Union, would inevitably be entailed upon the country. Such are my views upon this momentous question. How far events may modify them, it is impossible now to foresee. But they are expressed to you as I entertain them. If you should think proper to call me to the great trust which some of you desire me to fill. I shall endeavor so to guide my course as to preserve and restore the Union, if possible; but, at all hazards, to protect and defend Virginia. Very respectfully, Your fellow-citizen, J. B. Young.

From Washington.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Washington.Jan, 22, 1861. Bleeding Kansas walked into the Abolition Union yesterday, and the Senators of three Southern States walked out. Two men of doubtful ability, and representing an idea at war with all justice, all honest Government, will replace ten men of the heroic mould and powerful mind of Toombs, Davis and Hammond. A precious Union for Virginia to cling, as and raise a blubbering "och hubbaboo" for peace. The Republicans won't give her at least decent pretext for so doing. The leave-taking of the seceding Senators was touching and solemn beyond description. It seemed to rouse the Abolitionists, for the first time, to a sense of the vast importance of setual and everlasting dissolution. Now they may possibly fling a meatless bone to the Border States. But, mark me, so long as there is even one slave State under the same Government with them, so long will they have the basis of an anti
