Saunders, bearer of dispatches to Capt. Armstrong, had them demanded of him at his quarters, by the secessionists, but he refused to comply. He was then informed that they would be taken from him.

obably, those in favor of co-operation have a majority in the county, there is a band to which every day brings new recruits who are in favor of immediate secession. We have no Submissionists amongst us; or, if we have, they are ashamed to show themselves in the light of the sun. This being the state of feeling in a strongly conservative county, you can judge of that in other portions of the State where conservation has never equalled that of the counties lying immediately on the Mississippi river. Coercion is looked upon here as a measure received in the brain of insanity, and brought forward by short-sighted, knavish politicians to secure the influence of fanatical fools, whose Idiocy is in keeping with this atrocious and brutish doctrine. Andy Johnson's course is execrated by every one who pretends to call himself a white man. Applauded by Black Republicans, he stands despised by all the rest.

one. --Dr. Winship, the celebrated Massachusetts athlete, who was asserted to be the "strongest man in the world," has met a superior in the person of one William Thompson, who is connected with the Chicago Gymnasium. The test of strength occurred in that city one day last week, at a gymnastic tournament, at which Dr. Winship great muscular feat of lifting nine kegs of nails weighing 1,000 pounds, and raising, with the aid of harness on his shoulders, 1,517 pounds. He was succeeded by Thompson, who, commencing with the last lift of the Doctor, then went on adding weights and lifting, with harness on his shoulders and hips, until the numbers stood succe0 and 165 pounds.--Another competing gymnast, named Curtis, "pushed" first 130 pounds, and then 150 pounds in each hand with the pulley, and lying down upon his back put up 110 pounds in each hand. But the feat of the evening was the great lift of Thompson, and the judges so considered it in the award of the $200 prize to him.

From Washington.[special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Washington.Jan, 22, 1861. Bleeding Kansas walked into the Abolition Union yesterday, and the Senators of three Southern States walked out. Two men of doubtful ability, and representing an idea at war with all justice, all honest Government, will replace ten men of the heroic mould and powerful mind of Toombs, Davis and Hammond. A precious Union for Virginia to cling, as and raise a blubbering "och hubbaboo" for peace. The Republicans won't give her at least decent pretext for so doing. The leave-taking of the seceding Senators was touching and solemn beyond description. It seemed to rouse the Abolitionists, for the first time, to a sense of the vast importance of setual and everlasting dissolution. Now they may possibly fling a meatless bone to the Border States. But, mark me, so long as there is even one slave State under the same Government with them, so long will they have the basis of an anti-
th. As amended, it passed unanimously. An ordinance for the continuance of the present postal revenues until another government is re- established, was referred. Judge Benning offered an ordinance continuing the present laws about inter-State slave trade; also, a resolution appointing Commissioners to all the slaveholding States. Mr. Cobb reported an ordinance revoking the Federal jurisdiction over all lands ceded, and authorizing payment for all forts, arsenals, and other government property within the limits of Georgia. Laid over. It is generally conceded that Senator Toombs and Hon. Howell Cobb, will be appointed representatives to the Montgomery Convention from the State at large. There is much perplexity about the delegates no regard being had about the present Congressman. There is general satisfaction expressed at the unanimous passage of the anti-slave trade ordinance. It has been raining here all day, and so far (10 ½ o'clock) into the night.
