upon the Journals of this House. The Committee of Thirty-three. The Committee of Thirty-three will not be called together by Mr. Corwin before Tuesday next. His reason for this delay is said to have been to allow time for the Southern members to consult as to the demands they shall make of the Committee, and also for the Republicans to consult as to what they shall yield.--He also desires the House to act on the application of Mr. Hawkins, of Florida, to be excused from serving. Mr. Boyce, of South Carolina, will also, it is said, make a similar application, and an exciting debate may be expected on these applications to-morrow morning. The House, it is thought, will not excuse either of them, though, of course, they cannot be compelled to attend the meetings of the Committee. All the other members from the Southern States will serve on the Committee. The efforts on the part of the secessionists to get Mr. Houston, of Alabama, to decline serving, have been unsuccessful.
The impression prevails here that the border States are about to advise the cotton States, in case they secede, to submit temporarily to the existing tariff and postal laws, and to send Commissioners to Washington to treat with the Federal Government, and thus avoid collision and bloodshed; and should the Federal Government refuse to recognize the Commissioners, or the negotiations fall to be consummated, then the border States will follow their sister Southern States in secession. The Herald's rumor that Lincoln has addressed a conciliatory letter to Jeff. Davis, is discredited here. Messrs. Miles, McQueen and Boyce, of S. C., had an interview with the President to-day. Result unknown. Secretary Cobb has certainly resigned, and will return home on Thursday. The President, to-day, was assured from authentic sources that South Carolina will not oppose the collection of the revenue, nor the Federal retention of the forts during the remainder of his administration.
