ll is the beau ideal of a revolutionist. At the time reinforcements were about to be sent to Sumter, he scared old Toucey nearly to death, and made him back flat down. There was a Cabinet meeting last night in regard to Fort Pickens. Result not known. The Van Wyck assassination canard was gotten up to influence the election in New Hampshire. So was a Richmond letter in Saturday's Tribune, which represents Virginia as rising in favor of free soil, and gives Messrs. Clemens, Jackson, Scott, Stuart, and McDowell Moore an unenviable notoriety.--The belief is that Van Wyck got whipped in a house of ill-fame. The ladies of New York are getting up a monster petition in favor of the Union, such as it is. Of course, of course. Why not? Lincoln is much jaded by his recent triumphal tour and sneaking entrance into this city, --I should not be at all surprised if his fate shall be that of Harrison and Taylor — death from exhaustion after a month's Presidential labor. He is s
ys: "Notwithstanding the report of the Committee of the House demonstrates that there is not, and never has been, any ground for the rumor that there was an organization here in Washington, or else where to seize upon the Federal Capital, Gen. Scott continues to bring troops into the city, that his purpose is not alone to protect the Government property or enhance the pageantry of Lincoln's inauguration, is now obvious to any man of commonsense; and as a proof that there is some ulterior pginia passed an Ordinance of Secession, and to make that point the basis of operations against the south.

Congressman Van Wyck, who was never before known as a first-class combatant, has been assailed by three rogues (in buckram?) and let fly at them more furiously than honestJack. Why don't Gen.Scottkeep better order in the Federal Capital with his standing army police? Perhaps some of his heroes were the perpetrators of the deed. Letters from Washington have appeared in the columns of our city contemporaries stating that citizens have been stabbed and ladies insulted by these myrmidons.
is hearers rather to act the part of the wise men in the temple, who took care of the jewels without stopping to ask who applied the torch. In proceeding, he spoke of Abraham Lincoln, whom he knew in Congress, and his acquaintance had led him to anticipate better things than had lately been developed. He thought, since his recent speeches, that there was no hope for the future through him.--With regard to the collection of Federal troops at Washington, he said it was unfortunate that Gen. Scott was called there. He could pledge his right hand to Abraham Lincoln that there was not a man in Virginia who proposed by force to prevent the consummation of his inauguration. Yet when the power at Washington or elsewhere is brought to bear on this Common wealth, all here will stand united as one man. For himself, he would say that if any coercion be attempted, either directly or indirectly, as he would say for every one here, that it would be repelled. Mr. Goggin reviewed at consid
