Extending the Corporation limits. --Williams C. Wickham, Esq., Senator from Henrico and Hanover, under date of March 11th, (yesterday,) writes as follows to the editors of the Dispatch, in reference to the bill recently passed for amending the charter of this city: "In your report of the Saturday's proceedings of the House of Delegates, the bill passed 'amending the charter of the city of Richmond,' is spoken of as 'extending the corporate limits.' This is an error; the bill contains no such provision. A proposition to extend the corporate limits has been before the Committee of Propositions of the House, and they have asked to be discharged from the further consideration of the subject, thus defeating the effort to extend the limits. As my constituents are deeply interested in this subject, you will oblige me by inserting this communication."
Extra session of the U. S. Senate. Washington, March 11. --The expulsion of Senator Wigfall, of Texas, was taken up. Mr. Foster advocated the adoption of his motion to that effect — not as a personal matter, but as a duty — the Senator having announced himself a foreigner, not owing allegiance to this Government. He made a long speech, containing no particular argument, except anti- secession. Mr. Clingman followed. He thought Mr. Foster had made a bad point. If the resolution was adopted, it would acknowledge Texas as out of the Union. Why not expel Jefferson Davis, the head of the Sovereign Republic? Why should the Senator from Texas be singled out? If Texas was not out of the Union, he is still entitled to a seat here. Mr. Mason remarked that the resolution called for the expulsion of Mr. Wigfall, for what he had said on the floor of the Senate.--The Constitution enabled the Senate to protect itself by conferring the power of expulsion, by a two-thirds
From Washington. Washington, March 11. --An official letter from Maj. Anderson, received Saturday, says he had only fifteen days subsistence and wood. The question has therefore arisen with the Administration whether reinforcement shall be attempted or the fort abandoned. The latter course, it is thought, will be adopted from inevitable necessity, by the advice of General Scott. There is, however, a conflict of opinion among the Republicans on this question. No conclusion has beenn Cabinet council. The Cumberland and Pocahontas have, according to official advices, left Vera Cruz for Norfolk, and the Powhatan is on her way to New York, leaving only the Macedonian at Vera Cruz. [second Dispatch.] Washington,March 11, P. M.--Reports continue to prevail respecting the contemplated evacuation of Fort Sumter.
