old, and if every voter in Virginia could have a copy of it, the old State would come out right. Our conservative men cling desperately to the dead corpse of the Union, forgetting that Constitutional liberty is worth all the Unions past or to come. Johnson is doing great harm to Maryland and the South. He was in the Senate again yesterday in close confab with the British coercionist, Baker. He is playing high for the Attorney General's place. I certainly meant no offence to respectable colored gentlemen when I stated that Hamlin was a mulatto. My statement came from an entirely reliable source. Gov. Crittenden, I learn, is more and more dissatisfied with Seward's speech. It is gratifying to know that Charleston is three-eighths of a mile beyond the range of the best shell-throwing gun in Fort Sumter. So many Southern members have gone home or ceased to vote, that there is now an Abolition majority in both Houses. We may expect some sweet work shortly. Zed.
Va., Jan. 15th, 1861. I have been a devoted lover of the Union, and have been disposed to say I would stick to the Union as a drowning man would upon the last plank of a sinking ship; but I am getting out of patience, and I do hope, if Mr. Crittenden's compromise is rejected, that no other proposition will be offered by any Southern man, and if there should be a compromise hereafter, let it come from the other side. I am one of those who have opposed every meeting our people have attempt should be a compromise hereafter, let it come from the other side. I am one of those who have opposed every meeting our people have attempted to have here, and done all I could to prevent the people from passing any resolutions that were calculated to excite our people and encourage secession; but I am for anything to settle our difficulties, provided Crittenden's compromise is rejected.

, and all of Nebraska north of the 43d parallel; Oregon to include Washington, and California to extend her boundaries to the line of Kansas. The resolutions were ordered to be printed. Several compromise memorials were introduced. Mr. Crittenden's resolutions were taken up. Mr. Powell's amendment guaranteeing slavery in all the present Territories south of 36 deg 30 min., was accepted — ayes 29, nays 4. Messrs Simmons, of Rhode Island, and Anthony, of the same State, made s laws ought to be made for the punishment of those who attempt, by rescue of the slaves, or other illegal means, to hinder or defeat the due execution of said laws. The whole subject was then laid on the table for the present. The Kansas bill was made the order for Friday. The Pacific Railroad bill was then taken up and argued. After spending an hour in Executive session, and pending a motion to table Crittenden's resolutions, (equal to a defeat,) the Senate Adjourned.
to the Federal Government to stay its hand and avoid all acts which may lead to collision pending the mediation of Virginia Fifth, an appeal to the seceding States to preserve the existing status, and abstain from all acts which may precipitate a collision. Mr. Russell has been before the Special Committee on the subject of abstracting bonds from the public treasury, and promptly answered the questions put to him. He lays before them a written statement of all he knows relating to the matter. An erroneous telegram has been dispatched hence relating to the defeat of Crittenden's compromise in the Senate. The subject will probably come up again to-morrow under a motion to reconsider. A dispatch from a distinguished source in Virginia says there is no doubt this plan will pass both Houses of the Legislature of that State. Similar movements will be made in the Legislatures of Missouri, North Carolina, Tennessee and Kentucky. Arrangements are making for that purpose.
