From Washington.

Washington, Feb. 20.
--The route agent between Grafton and Parkersburg has been removed, on account of leaving his business, without permission, to engage in the secession movement.

Several postmasters in Kentucky and Tennessee have been removed for a similar cause.

The Select Committee of Five on the President's special Message, has prepared a report, to be presented to-morrow, in which they say that the Navy Department have neglected to defend the Atlantic Coast, and conclude with a resolution censuring the Secretary for receiving the resignation of those who were in arms against the Government, without giving the same any consideration.
