ers. Nothing is so painful in the present emergency as the breaking up of society here. Senator Trumbull is having his residence put in order for the reception of his expected guest, the President elect, who is expected here in February. Mrs. Lincoln will be accompanied by her sister, Mrs. Edwards, from whose roof, by the way, she eloped with "Old Abe," then a briefless attorney.--Cor. Philadelphia Press. Spending Christmas. The Savannah Republican of Monday says: Quite a snt, and others addressed the assemblage with effect. Resignations. We understand that our Deputy U. S. Marshal, Capt. Charles Blaine, has sent on his resignation to the U. S. Marshal of Western Virginia. He says he will not serve under Lincoln. We should not be surprised to hear at any time of the resignation of the U. S. Marshal, or of the Judge of this District.--Kanawha (Va.) Star. Excitement at Pittsburg. Pittsburg, Pa.,Dec. 24. --Intense excitement exists here to-da
[special Dispatch to the Richmond Dispatch.]another rumored proposition. Washington, Dec. 26. --It is stated on good authority, that Senator Seward, with Lincoln's authority, proposes to admit all the territory at once as States--all South of the Northern line of New Mexico to be slave States, and all North of that line to be free States. Senator Davis, of Miss., inclines favorably to this proposition; so it is said. Zed.
From Washington.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Dec. 24, 1860. Friday night there was a great flutter among the Republicans at Willard's Hotel. The cause of it was an article in the Tribune of the next morning, giving Lincoln's determined purpose not to yield one iota of the Chicago platform. This settles the business. It kills at one blow both of the Union-saving Committees. It accounts for the vote in the Committee of Thirteen on Crittenden's amendment. It proves the correctness of the position taken in my letter to the Dispatch of December 7th: That the best way to avert civil war was to get Maryland and Virginia out of the Union before the 4th of March, so as to make coercion madness. Its effect on Mr. Crittenden was to throw him into despair of the Union. Mr. Toombs yesterday telegraphed Georgia that compromise was impossible, and nothing was left but prompt, separate State action. I know this most positively. Why cannot Virginia rely on h
Does any Virginian feel proud of playing into their hands? How noble and brave a thing it is, by warring among ourselves, to encourage the North to "concede nothing." With what eagerness the Black Republicans seize everything occurring in Virginia, which is in the least degree unfriendly to the Gulf States, is shown by the malignant unction of the Tribune, as it quotes the resolution passed at the recent meeting at Christiansburg, in Montgomery county; which resolution declares that Lincoln's election is no cause for secession. The Tribune bases an editorial on this meeting, and closes it with an appeal (like all the other appeals of our delayers and retarders) to the pockets of Virginians. When our enemies praise us, and then appeal to the basest of all our passions — cupidity — I ask Virginia gentlemen, if it is not high time for them to take such a position as will not subject themselves to the insult of Abolition laudation, nor afford the shadow of an excuse to the Repub
A Cabinet appointment. --The St. Louis Democrat announces that it has the permission both of Mr. Lincoln and Mr. Bates to say that the latter will occupy a seat in the new Cabinet. It is not, however, definitely settled which department will be assigned to Mr. Bates.
Wm. H. Seward. Whilst Mr. Lincoln declines to speak at all on the great questions which agitate the country, the great Sphynx of Auburn speaks only in oracles. His late speech at the meeting of the Sons of New England admits of various interpretations. If Wm. H. Seward is as shrewd and sagacious as he is generally supposed to be, we shall find him before long raising the standard of peace and speaking in terms that will not be misunderstood.
A New method of giving out Offices. We learn from the Cincinnati Enquirer, that the Republican Electoral College of Ohio, which gave its twenty-three electoral votes to Lincoln and Hamlin, was besieged with a large number of candidates for the honor and profit of bearing the vote of that State to Washington as messenger. In this extremity the college resorted to a very novel political method of designating the successful aspirant. It adopted a system of gambling by placing a number of tickets in a hat after the style of drawing a lottery. The lucky number was drawn by Mr. J. Ankemny, of Holmes county, who was thereby entitled to about $250 for his patriotic services. It is said that Judge Bates will call the attention of the Grand Jury to this extraordinary proceeding.
