From Washington. [special Correspondences of the Dispatch.] Washington, Jan. 2, 1861. A bright, sunny day. Here in the House, the galleries are crowded, and the display of crinoline is copious. Douglas has given the floor of the Senate to Baker, of Oregon--a flighty orator, born in England. As he has lately visited Lincoln, his views are looked to with much interest. No chance to get in, though. It was observed yesterday at the reception at the White House that the President was looking very badly. Poor old man! his is a hard fate. He has scarcely the confidence of a human being. The order to reinforce Anderson from the troops at Fort Monroe was either not issued, or if issued, revoked. I know that Messrs. Toombs, Wigfall, and other Southern gentlemen, fully believed it, and so telegraphed their friends. General Scott has been grossly maligned.--His ideas were correct, viz: Before South Carolina's secession, to place such a force in the Charleston forts
The United States army. --By the old law the regular United States army consisted of about thirteen thousand men. Under a law passed in 1850, authority was granted which, with full regiments, would make a total force of nineteen thousand. This small force is now scattered over the vast territory of the Union; some in Utah, keeping the Mormons in order; others in Oregon, California and Washington Territory, fighting the Indians; and some in Kansas, looking after Montgomery and his "Jayhawkers." But we hear of very few located at the South, and it would probably be a difficult matter to concentrate a large force in that region, except of volunteers, without some weeks', or perhaps even months' notice.

Congressional. Washington, Jan. 3. --Senate.--Mr. Bigler presented the Pennsylvania plan of compromise, based on Crittenden's proposition. Mr. Crittenden introduced his plan of adjustment; also, resolutions submitting it to the people. He made an eloquent speech on the subject. Mr. Baker, of Oregon, resumed and concluded his speech of yesterday. He argued to show that the Northern people did not desire to interfere with slavery. Mr. Benjamin interrupted him, and quoted Republican papers, which sustained the John Brown raid. Mr. Baker recommended Jackson's policy, and closed with a strong appeal for the Union. Mr. Douglas took the floor on Powell's resolutions, and said being compelled to vote for them gave him great pain, declaring as they did that no adjustment could restore peace.--He said that Congress never had legislated on slavery without danger to the country. He defended the Kansas-Nebraska act, and defended the South from the aspersions of
