Speeches of the Commissioners — the people want to hear them. Yesterday, Mr. Preston, the Commissioner from South Carolina, concluded the addresses of the Commissioners of the Seceding States to the Convention of Virginia, in a magnificent oration, which thrilled every bosom in the vast audience, and was worthy of the Patrick Henry blood that courses through his veins. The Convention have had a rare treat in the beautiful and truly eloquent address of Mr. Anderson, of Mississippi, the logical and powerful argument of Mr. Benning, of Georgia, and the soul-stirring strains of the gifted Preston.

It is said to have embraced very ill-tempered comments on the admirable letter of Secretary Holt, published a few days since as a portion of the Hayne correspondence concerning his negotiations for the surrender of Fort Sumter. The offensive and insulting portion of the letter in question is believed to have been an allegation that the Government's possession of Fort Sumter was an unwarranted act of Major Anderson, by and through the President's violation of his faith to South Carolina, &c. The following dispatches from Washington are received by telegraph: Washington, Feb. 9.--The President has approved and signed the twenty-five million loan bill, which passed both Houses as originally reported with amendments pending that the revenue from the loan authorized by the Act of June, 1860, or so much as may be deemed necessary, shall be applied to the redemption of the Treasury notes issued
