Political movements in Washington.

--A Washington dispatch, dated May 9, to the New York Herald, says:

‘ The Union men and so-called National Democracy are industriously organizing for the municipal election here. The National Democracy clock their secession sympathy under allegations of Antipathy to Abolitionism. The Union men present a support of the Administration and maintenance of the Union as the only issues. The latter will nominate Richard Wallack for Mayor. The National Democrat would not have presumed to revive their organization if a pretext had not been afforded by the mad ultraisms of the radical Abolition faction in congress, whose assaults upon the (constitution are every where re-alimenting the defunct Democrat party, as well as giving encouragement and vitally to the rebellion.

’ The following notices was read from the clerk's desk immediately after the adjournment of the House to-day:

‘"There will be a meeting of the conservative members of Congress in this hall tomorrow, Saturday, May 10, at two o'clock P. M. All conservative members from all the States are invited to attend, to consult together as to the best means to defeat the schemes of the Abolitionists and Secessionists."’
