This is but two squares from the scene of the inaugural ceremonies. Ten thousand copies of Clemens' patriotic speech have been taken for circulation in Maryland, seventy-five thousand in the South, and fifteen thousand in the Northern States. More than one hundred thousand copies have been subscribed for already. The following letter expresses the spirit which now animates some of the branches of the public service: Post-Office Department, Appointment Office, January 22, 1861. Sir --In answer to the inquiry in your letter of the 15th to the Postmaster General, he instructs me to inform you that you were removed from the office of
ase of taxes, and that he present to the Senate his views as to the best mode of meeting such deficiency. Communication from the Governor.--A communication was received from Gov. Letcher, transmitting a communication from Governor Hicks, of Maryland, together with one from the Governor of Georgia, with a copy of the ordinance passed by the Convention of that State.--Laid on the table and ordered to be printed. The following is the letter of Gov. Hicks: Executive Chamber, Annapolial Assembly of Virginia on the 19th inst., appointing Commissioners to meet in Washington on the 11th February, "to consider, and, if practicable, agree upon some suitable adjustment." I take pleasure in assuring you that Commissioners from Maryland will meet those from Virginia and other States in Washington on the day named. I am rejoiced that Virginia has made this move, and trust that it will be met in a corresponding spirit by other States. If so, we may anticipate the best conse

Communication from the Governor.--A communication was received from Gov. Letcher, enclosing a letter from His Excellency Thomas H. Hicks, Governor of the State of Maryland, in response to the resolutions adopted by the General Assembly on the 19th inst. Also, communications from Hon. Geo. W. Crawford, President of the Convention of the State of Georgia, transmitting the Ordinance of Secession, and resolutions adopted by that body on the 22d and 23d insts. The Georgia Ordinance of Secession having already been published, is omitted. The letter of Gov. Hicks will be found in the Senate report. The resolutions passed by the Convention of the
ummary way of dispossessing tenants, in certain cases; also, one asking the Auditor for information as to the probable deficiency in the Treasury on the 30th of September next, and how to meet the same. A letter was read from Governor Hicks, of Maryland, stating that Commissioners from his State would meet those of Virginia and other States in Washington, on the 4th of February, to try and adjust the difficulties now existing between the two sections of the Confederacy. A bill was passed amende City Hall, and for referring the subject Sheriffs' bonds to the Committee of Courts of Justice.

A message from the Governor, transmitting the acceptance of Maryland to the proposition to send Commissioners to Washington; a communication from the President of the Georgia State Convention, transmitting the Secession Ordinance of that State, and the resolutions adopted by that body, Jan. 22d and 23d, was read
His name. --The name of the person shot and killed in a beer saloon in Petersburg, Va., Thursday night, proves to be Osborne McBee. He was a native of Maryland.

My opinion, then, is, that Virginia should adhere to the slave States of the South, and that her decision should be immediate. As I have said, six States have already seceded from all connexion with the Black Republicans; and I have no doubt that N.

When it was laid on the Clerk's desk, the National flag which enveloped it was hailed with applause from the floor and galleries, Messrs Ed. Everett and others composing the committee who brought it from Boston. Several amendments to the Constitution were proposed and referred. Mr. Hughes offered a resolution, which was adopted, looking to the retrocession of the District of Columbia, except the city of Washington, to Maryland. The President's message, enclosing the Virginia resolutions, was received. They were laid over until to-morrow. The report of the Crisis Committee being up, Mr. Pryor, of Virginia, made an eloquent speech in behalf of the rights of the South. He assumed that the Union is already dissolved. Peace or war is now the only issue before the country. By their refusal to concede and threats to coerce, the Republicans would involve the country in war. In expectation of this catast
