Dispatches from Washington. Among the dispatches from Washington we find the following of interest: The Kentucky delegation had a conference last night, with a view of comparing opinions and shaping their course unitedly. Mr. Crittenden has indicated a plan of adjustment, which it is believed will be offered as an ultimatum on behalf of the South; and it declined, after an earnest appeal from him, without the suggestion of an alternative compromise from the North, may lead to very set of Columbia, or the forts, docks and arsenals of the United States in the Southern States; the repeal of all laws conflicting with the spirit and obligations of the Constitution; and the Fugitive Slave law amended to satisfy both sections. Mr. Crittenden thinks these terms, or others embodying the same principles, would kill off the secession scheme, and be accepted by the great body of the Southern people as a peace-offering and settlement. The condition of the Treasury is far worse tha

hope for the Union from any postponement. Last night we had new rumors. Gen. Scott had resigned, and bets were made that the President would follow suit before this week is ended. Mr. Breckinridge was said to be busy all day Sunday, preparing to assume the duties of the Executive, &c., &c. So we go. Everything is caught up and devoured with greedy credulity — nothing that could happen being too preposterous for these revolutionary times. It was stated very confidently that Senator Crittenden had determined to take ultra Southern ground. Not he. The old man has grown up in the Union. Its roots are wound round his very heart. He cannot abandon it. Some say Wade will make a violent and abusive abolition speech. Others contend that he will be gagged by other Republicans, and confine himself to a defence of Lincoln. He is a fiery old fellow, with a bitter tongue, which he has never taught himself to control. He is. withal, brave--one of the few Republicans of either

duced a series of resolutions, favoring the call of a National Convention, and opposing the use of coercion against a seceding State. Laid on the table. Mr. Crittenden made a powerful and patriotic speech, which was received with marked feeling by all present, and urged the adoption of resolutions in effect amending the Consing statutes. Pending the consideration of the subject, the Kansas bill came up, and was made the special order for Monday next. Mr. Hale responded to Crittenden's speech and resolutions, and inquired whether Crittenden or Wigfall was the proper accredited organ of the South, and if the proposition of the former would saCrittenden or Wigfall was the proper accredited organ of the South, and if the proposition of the former would satisfy the disunionists. Mr. Saulsbury asked if Hale would urge the acceptance of these propositions on his State if they would save the Union! Mr. Hale said he would not be willing to adopt them all, but would accept some of them. Mr. Johnson said it was important that Powell's resolution be adopted. The resolu

w Southern Senators to correct his misstatements fail to meet its reward.--When men, pretending to be Southern, make such bids for a place in Lincoln's Cabinet, what earthly chance is there of obtaining any concessions from the Republicans? Senator Pugh has the floor to-day. He is a great man in small matters. Details are his forts. The compromise which will come from the Crisis Committee will, I am told, amount in substance to the Missouri Compromise restoration suggested by Mr. Crittenden. A letter received last night from the Governor of Alabama--a man more likely to follow public sentiment than to lead it — states that there is not a possibility of keeping the State in. Some people here think South Carolina is going to hang fire. Her members scout the idea. I have just read a letter from a business man in Tennessee, who says that the masses are moving for disunion, and that the Middle Confederacy notion will not be tolerated until Tennessee is satisfied that she
