Washington city.

The Washington correspondent of the Examiner says that the secession of Virginia has opened the eyes of some of the time-servers and hypocrites of the metropolis, and their countenances are beginning to be ‘"sicklied o'er by the pale cast of thought. "’ On the other hand, the Secessionists who have so long been drooping, meet each other on the street with buoyant step and beaming faces. Lincoln is over a mine, and appears to be aware of it. Only think of a President of the United States having sixty armed men in his house to watch while he sleeps. If Maryland will act promptly in concert with Virginia, Washington can be taken with case, and the Cabinet boxed up and sent to Dixie's Land.
