From Charleston. [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch. Charleston, Feb. 21, 1861. It is pretty well understood here that Mr. Memminger, of this city, is to be Mr. Davis' Secretary of State; and it is also rumored that Mr. Cobb (not Howell, his brother,) is to be Secretary of the Treasury; Mr. Toombs, Secretary of War; Mr. Conrad, of Louisiana, Secretary of the Navy; Interior, ,Hon. Mr. Boyce, of South Carolina; Postmaster General, Judge Chilton, of Alabama; and Attorney General, Mr. Benjamin, of Louisiana.--This may be so, but no one knows positively. I said to you a few days ago, upon what was good authority, that President Davis would be here to day. Official business prevents it. We are getting exceedingly impatient with the slow movements of affairs in every direction; and I do not think that the people of the Southern Confederacy will much longer endure the menaces of these forts and the taunts in various quarters.

he Republicans of the Fourth Congressional District in regard to the course of their representative in Congress, Hon. Wm. Kellogg. The resolutions adopted declare that their principles are the same as before the election; express love for the Union, and declare that the Union must be maintained at all hazards. The fourth resolution says that we enter our decided protest against the resolutions offered by Hon. William Kellogg, our Representative in Congress, and we earnestly urge him to an unfaltering support of Republican principles as enunciated in the Chicago platform. A motion to amend this resolution by adding "that if he cannot do so it is his duty to re-sign," was lost by years 79, nays 88. Some of the delegates did not vote upon this motion. The fourth resolution was their adopted unanimously. Resolutions complimentary to Senator Johnson and Representatives Etheridge, Clemens and Davis, and Gov. Hicks, were then adopted amidst the wildest enthusiasm.
