[Special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]
from Washington.

Washington, Dec. 27.
--The ablest Southern member of the Senate Committee of Thirteen says there is no earthly chance for compromise. The Republicans deny all the rights of the South, and defiantly refuse to own that the Constitution recognizes property in slaves. He thinks the proposition of Senator Seward a Yankee trick to overpower the South in the Senate.Zed.
