Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.affairs in Lynchburg Lynchburg, Va., Dec. 3. In the Catholic Church of this city, yesterday, Bishop McGill administered the sacrament of confirmation to fifty persons, a majority of whom were boys and girls. Previous to the ceremony, which was of the most impressive character, the Bishop delivered a discourse on the subject of signs and ceremonies as practiced by the Catholic Church, which, for strong, close reasoning and logical conclusions, I have seldom heard equalled. Yesterday was the first day or beginning of the Ecclesiastical year, and accordingly the first Sunday in Advent. Next Friday, and each succeeding Friday between that time and Christmas, will be fasting days. The Ecclesiastical year is divided into three parts — the first part from the first Sunday in Adventist Christmas, or the birth of Christ; the second part from Christmas to Whit-Sunday, or the Ascension, and the third and last part from Whit-Sunday to the

[from our Special correspondent] affairs at Washington. the President and secession — Seward Yielding, but Greeley Valiant — Another rumored &c. Washington, Dec. 3, --The President's plan South Carolina to postpone secession on the 4th of March next will hardly avail.-- As South Carolina member said to me this evening, "We have spiked that gun." Senator Seward is willing to grant the South Almost anything, but the Tribune of this morning says, "Let the winds howl on; the free States will not surrender their principles on account of threatened disunion." Greeley's own article states the case, but takes no decided ground, so there is no day light yet. All that money, beauty, place and power, can do, will be brought to bear in favor of Union. We shall see Southerners, heretofore fiery, backing down. Messrs Cobb, Thompson, Jeff, Davis, and Fitzpatrick of Alabama, have, it is rumored, yielded to the President's pious appeal for staving off secession

From Washington Washington. Dec. 3, --Among the various prepositions for quieting the present political troubles, is that so much of the President's Message as treats of them be referred in the House to a select committee of members from all the States, to bring forward some compromise. Many who formerly believed that South Carolina only will secede, are now satisfied from assurances from those representing Georgia, Alabama and Mississippi, that these States, too, will make c the Supreme Court Bar held a meeting and passed resolutions of respect to the memory of Judge Daniel.

The preamble takes strong grounds in favor of having all sectional questions finally settled, and objects to separate action.

The Temple was taken possession of by the Union men, who chose Richard Sullivan Fay, Chairman, and passed resolutions denouncing John Brown, justifying his execution and landing Virginia. Fred Douglas, Redpath, Frank Sanborn, and other notorious abolitionists, vainly endeavored to make themselves heard.
