After the Tremont Temple was closed
by the Mayor last night, 5000 people ga
thered in the vicinity, a majority of them
believing it a ruse of the trustees to get
rid of the mob. After waiting for two
hours, the crowd gradually dispersed.
About 200 proceeded to Wendell Phillips
residence, and threatened to clean hint
out. The police prevented any attack,
and made several arrests. It is said that
Mayor Wigbtman was informed that an

forth any such investigation. It is an in

entertained unless the gentleman from
Pennsylvania states on his responsibility
that there is such a conspiracy, and for
myself I don't believe that any purpose
is contemplated by the citizens of , this
District, or the adjoining States, of mak

was something to base it on.

The Speaker. I did not understand

Mr. Branch of N C. I will object to
the resolution until I see the chairmen of

Mr. Grow. I spoke to the chairman
yesterday regarding this resolution. It
met with his sanction. I have reason to
believe jhere was such a design enter
tained by some persons in the employ of
the government: To what extent it has
gone, I don't know, and for that reason I
offered the resolution. If the gentlemen

The Legislature to-day unanimously
resolved, that while acknowledging the
courtesy of the Virginia Legislature, in
sending a Commissioner, decline having
any intercourse on the subject proposed,
regarding the separation as final and ir
revocable. The correspondence of Mr. Hayne
and Gov. Pickens, while the forner was
at Washington, was considered in execu

tum oj South Carolina was the surrender
of Ft. Sumter and the withdrawal of the
federal troops; that South Carolina pro
mised to pay for the forts; and that
Hayne, in deference to the wishes of
Southern Congressmen, withheld the proposition.-

to make a final demand for the forts, re
pudiating the President's position that he
has not power to give them up, but must

answer, then, if refused, Ft. Sumter shall

If coercion were attempted they would
