From Washington. Washington, April 1. --The Tribune's Washington special correspondent says the President reserves to himself the ultimatum decision in regard to reinforcements for Fort Sumter, about which the Cabinet were unanimous, with one exception, two weeks ago. The different views which have recently been presented, are not without leaving a favorable impression as to the feasibility of introducing men and supplies. The correspondent adds: "Several leading Naval Officers express the belief that the batteries guarding the entrance into Charleston harbor might be run by steam, without incurring more than the ordinary risk; but all agree that the enterprise should be executed at night. This view is entertained by the agent sent to make a personal inspection for the satisfaction of the Administration."

The reports in circulation about reinforcements for Fort Pickens are pronounced, by reliable sources, unfounded.

Charleston is, with equal confidence, counted for five millions-- New Orleans for seven, and Mobile for three. There you have abundance of money. Charleston harbor is well stocked with shipping, and it is odd to see the Confederate flag flying from the Northern masts.
