--The Washington Star of Saturday, furnishes the following items:
, with the dispatches from Major Anderson
to the Government
, arrived in Washington
yesterday afternoon, and repaired immediately to the Adjutant General
's Office, and with the Adjutant General
went to see the President
, and had an interview.
Lieut T. is stopping at the residence of his mother, near S., Aloysius' Church.
We have entirely reliable information that Robert E. Scott
, of Virginia
, does not entertain the least idea of going into the Cabinet
of Mr. Lincoln
, unless the existing national troubles be previously settled upon a basis satisfactory to the conservative portion of the people of the South
At a private dinner party yesterday, high words passed between Senator Toombs
and Lieutenant General Scott
According to relations of the affair in Congressional circles, the conversation turned on the sending of troops to Charleston
, when Mr. Toombs
expressed the hope that the people there would sink the Star of the West. Gen. Scott
, with much earnestness, asked whether it was possible he, as an American, desired such an event?
replied affirmatively, and that he wished those who sent the vessel there could be sunk with her. General Scott
thereupon said he was responsible for what he said, and Mr. Toombs
remarked, "You have known me for twenty-five years, and are aware that I, too, am responsible."
The matter here ended, but the subject, it is said, is now in the hands of friends.
