Board of Common Council, be appointed to wait on Mr. Crittenden, and present him a copy of these resolutions, at the same time conveying to him our deep sensibilities at parting from one who has been so long among us as to be regarded almost as one of us, and whose absence from the social and political circles of Washington will leave a vacuum not easily filled. Old Abe Hung in effigy in New York. No little excitement was created at a New York wharf Monday morning by the effigy of Lincoln hanging from the masthead of the sloop Motto, Captain Skipworth. Quite a crowd soon collected on the wharf, which the police tried in vain to disperse. Finally Sergeant Davourney went on board the Motto, and in an authoritative manner, ordered the figure to be lowered. Captain Skipworth refused to comply with the request, on the ground that the police had no business to interfere in such matters. Davourney thereupon called several policemen to his assistance, and rushing upon the Capta
he was ready to act with others in a different policy. No consideration should divert him from the line of his duty; but he must be satisfied, and be enabled to say to his people, that every constitutional remedy had been exhausted. Every feeling, and every conviction, would lead him to take his place under the folds of the flag of Virginia. He would prefer to perish under that flag, if perish he must, to a struggle for the future under the stars and stripes. He had little hope from Abraham Lincoln; but if he could show him that he turned his back upon the principles of his party, he would indeed deserve the thanks of all men, and feel that he was worthy to fill the place occupied by George Washington. Mr. Sheffey, of Smythe, next addressed the Convention. He spoke of the responsibilities resting upon the body assembled here, the result of whose deliberations might decide the destiny of Virginia. He had listened with pleasure to the gentleman from Bedford, and welcomed the
From Washington. [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Feb. 26, 1861. Lincoln visited his Capitol yesterday. In the Senate he was received with distinguished consideration on the Republican side. Douglas limped up to him and greeted him lovingly. He came over to the Democratic side, walked slowly around, no one taking the slightest notice of him, looked at a map, and plunk out. In the House, Emerson Etheridge played ring-master, took Lincoln out of Seward's hands, aLincoln out of Seward's hands, and introduced him to the Republicans, who crowded around him with servile promptness, making such confusion that the business of the House was for a time suspended. When he came over to the Democratic side, he stood fully a minute before any one seemed to be aware of his presence. Hi countenance fell; he placed both hands of the back of a chair, and his form seemed to droop and give way under the humiliating embarrassment. To relieve him, Republicans hastened from their side to surround him
From Washington. Washington, Feb. 27. --All the employees of the Post-Office Department, and Department of the Interior, waited on, and bade farewell to the President to-day, also the Judges and officers of the Court of Claims. Dispatches from Texas say the arsenal at San Antonio, and some forts in Northern Texas have been seized by State troops, and some cannons at Brazos and Brownsville. There is no mention of Twiggs' surrender. A rumor that he had been shot by a soldier is evidently unfounded. The City Councils took farewell of the President to-day, and visited Lincoln, who addressed them, saying he had no disposition or intention to infringe the rights of any section. Much of the present trouble originates from our misunderstanding each other. He trusted when we are better acquainted, we will become stronger friends.
