[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.]
Washington, Washington.Jan, 22, 1861.
walked into the Abolition Union yesterday, and the Senators
of three Southern States walked out. Two men of doubtful ability, and representing an idea at war with all justice, all honest Government, will replace ten men of the heroic mould and powerful mind of Toombs
A precious Union for Virginia
to cling, as and raise a blubbering ‘"och hubbaboo"’ for peace.
The Republicans won't give her at least decent pretext for so doing.
The leave-taking of the seceding Senators
was touching and solemn beyond description.
It seemed to rouse the Abolitionists, for the first time, to a sense of the vast importance of setual and everlasting dissolution.
Now they may possibly fling a meatless bone to the Border States
But, mark me, so long as there is even one slave State under the same Government with them, so long will they have the basis of an anti-slavery party, and the means of raising a row. You may think Crittenden
's amendment will cure the national ailment.
I know it will not.
By the 4th of March there will be 1,000 coops of the regular army here, and as many Northern volunteers.
Do you think Lincoln
will disband them?
might want to go out. Do you think he will withdraw the Soldiers from Fortress Monroe
and from Harper's Ferry
when the patriotic Superintendent, after morning here and getting the views of Southern men, went straight way to Buchanan
and got him to order them?
If you and the people of Virginia
think so, you are stark raving made.
I tell you Lincoln
is going to put down opposition in Maryland
with the strong arm.
look the ground yesterday that negroes were not property but persons, and the all other members of the household entitled to protection.
I don't know that this is t a good view of the case.
The other view never to have impressed our Northern abolition brethren in the Capitol
It is reported that, night before last, in the National Hotel
, Messrs. JoeSegar
and Jeremiah Morton
came near getting into a personal difficulty growing out of some statement, made by the former gentleman in regard to the action of Virginia
How it ended, is not certainly known.
‘" I wish I was in Dixie"’ is getting to be a favorite run here.
Niggers whistle it, and bonds play it. If ‘"Dixie"’ means Virginia
in the Southern Confederacy, then consider me whistling it all over, If I had a mouth in every square inch from the top of my head to the to of my host.
A new, neat, ‘"good-fitted,"’‘"tasty"’ dress becomes a woman and the Dispatch
