And with a seeming desire to maintain his inoffensive position toward the conspirators, he pursued a timorous and vacillating policy, which greatly embarrassed his loyal counselors, and paralyzed their efforts to strengthen the ship of State, so as to meet safely the shock of the impending tempest. Notwithstanding his

The Lieutenant-General Commanding offers his congratulations to the army on the successful termination of the campaign just closed. The cheerfulness with which the troops have borne the fatigues and inconveniences of the march, and their ready acquiescence in the orders directing their movements, have entitled them to the highest commendation. To the firmness and good conduct of the men, and the skill and judgment of their officers in checking the enemy's march, the Commanding General is indebted for securing the public stores and depriving the enemy of the use of the railroads and other facilities for foraging and subsistence. The concentration of our cavalry on his column of cavalry from West-Tennessee formed the turning-point of the campaign. That concentration broke down the only means of subsisting his infantry. His column was defeated and route

From Washington. [Special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Feb. 26, 1861. Lincoln visited his Capitol yesterday. In the Senate he was received with distinguished consideration on the Republican side. Douglas limped up to him and greeted him lovingly. He came over to the Democratic side, walked slowly around, no one taking the slightest notice of him, looked at a map, and plunk out. In the House, Emerson Etheridge played ring-master, took Lincoln out of Seward's hands, and introduced him to the Republicans, who crowded around him with servile promptness, making such confusion that the business of the House was for a time suspended. When he came over to the Democratic side, he stood fully a minute before any one seemed to be aware of his presence.
