Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch. Hon. Caleb Cushing--things in Fredericksburg — hard Times, &c., &c. Fredericksburg, Va.,Dec. 22. Hon. Caleb Cushing passed through this place this evening, on his return from South Carolina. Nearly all the way from Richmond he was surrounded by a crowd, to whom he was discoursingHon. Caleb Cushing passed through this place this evening, on his return from South Carolina. Nearly all the way from Richmond he was surrounded by a crowd, to whom he was discoursing on the state of the country. He believes that if the South had united on some one man during the last canvass, and had presented an undivided front to Northern fanaticism, we should have been freed from our present troubles. He thinks that Virginia erred immensely when she refused to go into a conference with South Carolina. Io his recovery. Dr. Coleman, of your city, and Prof. Coleman, of the University, arrived here this evening to see him. The little folks are anticipating a joyful time, as Christmas is so near. The Commissioners from South Carolina to the Federal Government passed on to-day, in company with Mr. Cushing. Yours, &c.,
the Republicans asked more time before voting on the resolutions before it. Toombs refused to grant the request, and every proposition was voted down. Toombs and Crittenden were the only two who voted for Crittenden's resolutions. The attitude of the Republicans causes a most depressing effect on the whole committee. A report prevails that the Administration has received dispatches from Charleston to the effect that a revenue cutter had arrived in that neighborhood, and unless orders were immediately given for her withdrawal, South Carolina would seize upon her and take the Government forts. Nothing, however, has been received from Charleston confirmatory of the fact. Hon. Caleb Cushing returned yesterday from Charleston. His report was considered important enough for an immediate Cabinet consultation. Mr. Bonham, member of Congress from South Carolina left to-day for his home in that State. McQueen will go in the morning, and Mr. Boyce will start early next week.
