As soon as It wae ascertained thatthe Brooklyn and other vessels had been ordered South, *esj>atches wero yester day immediately sent by Southern men to Charleston and Penracolu for the authorities to be on the look out, as it was understood that these vessels contained reinforce vents for the forts in Uioeo harbors.

Information w?3 received by the governmont this morning, from the Collector at New Orleans, stating tfeat the barracks abefct two miles below Now Orleans:, new ?occupied as a Marine Hospital, were taken possession of en the 11th instant by Captain Bradford, of the State In fantry, in the nsmc of the State of Louisiana. There were two hundred anil sixteen invalids ar.d con valescent patients in the hospital at the tinc it was Mixed. Ifee OMfcctor of Customs ?M required to iauredi ately remove'tho patients who were convalescent, and those who were confined to their beds as sooa aa practic able. This action on the part of the authorities ?f that State Is regarded by the government as most <??trageow jind tshuman. The government have no authority or awaas to make provision for these po:>r creatures, who Rre thsa thrown upon the ookl charities of the (wopte cf that BUte. The reason ateigned for this transacUac is, that the authorities there wanted the quarters for their own troops. THE PLOT TO SEIZE THE FEDERAL CAPI TAL. WAsmwrov, Jan tfl, 1861.

Mr. Grow rental* id that there were gTOuritla for sup , poring Buch bauds exist; and as he neldosri r.paaks at random on maM* rs of such importance, there is reason to believe the subject demands the early and earnest aiMoiion of tbe coaunitise. It is ? well known fact that at least 001 such organization exists, but as It boars the public, endorse ment of very risp' -table persons, the apprehensions that Its objects arc Is reality hostile to the inter eats of tbe people of the Lhsli 'ct are not very generally ascer tained. m Washington is already well protected by local (.'sited States troops in case of*ly ordinary disturtftoce of the public peace, and if ac Inroad of armed men in large numbers should ooeor the population would rise . m matte to put down thsinvaders and protect the pub lic property. Fifty artillery men fro? Vew York arrived UU^ mom tog, and immediately left ft r Fort Washington. to relieve tbe marines there temporarl v on duty. CONSERVATITE SPEECH OF CABWJ8 M. CLAY.

Robert E. Scott, of Virginia, whoso name is mentioned In connection with Mr. Lincoln's Cabinet, wad 11 the floor of the House to day, listening with apparent satis faction to the speech of Gov or nor Gilmer. There is au thority for stating that many republican Ambers of Congress are in favor of Mr. Greeley to supply the place of Mr. Seward in tho Senate. Mr. Shkkman uiado on unsuccessful attempt in the House to-day to extend the morning hour, for the pur pose of introducing the Kansas bill. It will be presented on Monday, and passed, with the Senate amendment.

It is not true that Mr. King, the First Assistant I'owt master General, refused to held any commuun it ion with ex-Senator VtJleo.

VMIHTY-8IXTI1 CONOHJC8S. WOONU MISSION. House of UcpreicaUtlTH. Wuhiihiiuii, .Tan. 28, 1881. THK AIXKOKD MOT T<? SKIS! TUB ITBUI! BPIUHNOH. Mr. ( iKnw, (rep.) of I'ii.,oflcred a resolution instructing tbe Select Committee of Kive, apiximicd on the Ttli unit., to inquire whether any secret organization hostile to this United States exists in the I'irtnct or Columbia, and if so whether any oflicer or employe of the elty of Washing ton, or otllcer or employe of the federal government m the executive or judicial de|iartments, are members thereof. Mr. Bchnkit, (opp.) of Ky.?I desire to know, and it us certainly duo to the House to know, whether any reason or fact exists for putting on foot any anch investigation It is a reflection on the city of Washington and the federal government, und ought not to he eulerUnned unless the gentleman from Pennsylvania states, on Ins r?s|x>n sibility, there is such it conspiracy. As for myself, I don't believe in any such oopsplraey. I don't believe any purpose is contemplated by the citizens of this District or tbe adjoining Stales of making any loiuy or raid on Uus city, or interfering with the peaceful inauguration of the President of the gentleman a choice. It does seem to uie right and pnqtcr such a statement should be made by the gentleman from Penn sylvania before we inaugurate proceedings directly re dectiug on the |>ariotisui and raithluluess of Uio people of the District to the federal government. A more miserable, contemptible mode of engendering bad feeling and making excitement worse than there Is now could not lie Introduced. Mr. iJhow?| would not have ottered the resolution un less I had supposed there was something to base it on. Mr. Cox, (opp.) of Ohio?Is the debate In order? The Si-kakkk?I did not imderalanl tho gmlleiuan from Keutucki un objecting to the r> solution. If he did the debate is not in order. Mr. Hkam it, (opp.) ol N. C ? 1 will objest to the reso lution in.til 1 see the (liau man ol" the select committee (Mr. Howard, of Michigan.) In his seat. Mr. (.sow?I spoke to the < hoirnuin yesterdiy, and It met with his sanction. I have reason to b< Itevo there was such a design entertained by some persons In tho employ ment of the government. To what extent it lio* gone 1 don't know Tor that reason I offered the roHofcl Hon If gi utlemen on the other side don't want to in vestigate tho subject they can object, and that would of lord better evideiioe that there is something in it. Mr. Ill snktt?I have not objected to tho resolution. If tho member says there is reason for investigation, bo ahull have an investigation as thorough as be desires. Therefore, there was uo necessity for the remark that objection would allbrd evidence of the existence of a cou spirucy. Mr. (Jhow?I demand the previous question. Mr. May.nakp. (opp.) of Tenn ? 1 claim the right to say a word personal to myself. Mr. tiKow? I ought to have said the gentleman from Tennessee yesterday afternoon objected to the resolution because ot the fewness of the members then present. The Bckakkr?The questiou is now on the adoption of the resolution. Mr Kvnkki., (opp.) of Mil.?I objoct to the r. solution. Cries from the republican side, ' Too late.'' Mr. Ktnkki? I announced my Intention to object to it long since; as the gentleman from Pennsylvania indulged in some remarks rellecting on this side of the house, and as he desires some one to take the r?s|Miusibility of object ing to this miserable imposition or rellccllnn on tho puo pie of Mnryland, there is one here to object, and I am he. Mr. {>how?I called the previous question. Mr. Branch?I said I could object until the chairman came in: but I have since been informed that tho resold tinn was ugreeuhle to him. Mr. KtWhgi?I have my right on this flmw, and it cannd arbitrarily be taken from me by any mun. I havo a rigid to object to the resolution under the ruls as soon as I could gel the recognition of tho Sjxnker. I will ui \cr relinquish my rights 1 repeat my objection. The H'1'.akkr suidhn would not attempt to deprive the genilenuin of any right. but the gentleman from Peun sylvania demanded the previous question before the gen Demon freui Maryland was recognized by tbe t'l.air. Mr Ki nkki?1 was on the Moor. The Hi'kakkk?But the gentleman was not recognized. Mr. Ki nkki.?I am aware that the geutleiuan who oc cuptes the Chair is not well disposed toward uie at any time. Culls from the republican side to order. Mr. Ckakik, (opp ) of N. C., wanted to offer an amend mint. Mr. Chow?I have demanded tho pievious question. Mr. Ckakik,amid much confusion. indicated his amend ment that the committee further inquire by what au thority lroo|>s were stationed on tho southern side of tho Capitol. Was it to control the proceedings hero at tho point of the bayonet und the mouth of camion' The resolution was adopted. THK NKW YORK IJHIISLATIVK KKSOl I'TKWS. Mr. Thorax, (OpoJ of Tenn., present* 1 resolutions of the legislature of Tennessee in rtMpouso to lbs Leg is laturs of New Vork, concluding with tho following ? Whenever lbs authorities of the latter State send a military force to the South for purpoicx ut coercion, tho people of Tennexxee will unite wllb the South to reslai auob lovmten at all hazaids. The resolutions were laid on tbe table ami ordered to be printed vrro uwsAi.r. from thk i rksipknt. Tbe Sckakkr laid before the Hottts a message f/otn tho 1'resident. returning, with bis objections, the bill for the relief of llockaday and I/egcott. Among other tbiugv, the lTesident say's the bill which was passed at the last session, but which he hud not time to examine before the adjournment, appropriated $40 000, and that thn bill now vetoed appropriated twenty thousand additional, or $A0,676. The bill involves important principles which if recognized will lake Itrge sums out of the treasury. Mr Bi hmtt xdvux aUxl the bill. He did not cere how mach was required for the (uymcnt of tho claim, If it was right. Mr. AiiJiV, (rep ) of Mass , said this bill was In relation to mail service, and no subject ever excited morn discus sion or investigation than this one. Thn veto was a most extraordinary proceeding on the part of tho President, though the I'risident bad exercised an unquestioned con stitutional right, If he thought thn bill was wrong. But there were xtrong legal claims for the amount proposed to lie appropriated.- The veto should not be sustained. Mr. Bkam ii sustained tbe President in thus performing his duty. Mr Cram:, (opp.) of Mo., and other gentlemen, made remarks on tbe subject. The question was taken on the passage of the btU, not withstanding tbe objections of tbe President, and It was negatived 81 against 87?not two thirds, us required by the constitution in such case*. thk KiroKT ok TUB ouMmmK or thirty rank Tbe house resumed thn consideration of tbe report of the C'omraitiee or Thirty-three. SCKKCN or MS. (TASK ON THK CRJKIN. Mr. Clank, (opp.) of Mo., spoke. He set out by de claring, we are in the midst of revolution. He traced the history ol the slavery agitation?which commenced at the time Missouri was admitted into the I'nton?and referred to the several compromises which had tempora rily restored peace, but since the republican party bad been formed tbe country had been diequltea, and the evils resulting from sgiLalion of the ques tion buvo culminated, and now it depend* on that party to say whether the government shall en dure and the t'nion be preserved. State alter State baa withdrawn from the confederacy, and these vacant seat* speak with an eloquence commanding thn attention of ail parlies. The South never attempted to take from tho North any constitutional rights in the Territories or affecting priqx-rty or personal liberty He dotted tho proof. lles|x>keof the aggressions or the North on tho South, Including the Personal liberty lulls, of the orga nizations to steal slaves and prevent their recapture. Southern soil, too, hod been invaded, and effort* inaJo to create servile insurrection, with all Its attendant hor rors. Besides, Mr Lincoln was opposed to tbe exclusion of negrcs from the polls, and had expressed an opinion that "the I'nion could not stand half skive and half fTee." Mr Kxrmsworth, (rep ) of 111., said Mr. Lincoln was not in favor of disunion. Mr. Clark replied It was found In the remarks he bad quoted i Mr. Farmswortii thought the gentleman was mistaken. Mr. i'iahk said be would inoortxirate the extract in hi* remarks, and afterwards expressed tho bels-f thai tho Crittenden compromise would give peace to the country, and asked why will not Uie republican* submit this l<> the people? Mr Hoard, (rep ) of N. Y . inquired If the States did not ngree to that proposition, would bo remain in tho Union* | Mr. (Tin replied that he would submit it as a bssii of compromise. He end Missouri were In favor of remain ing In the Union so long as Ihev could remain with honor and safety, but be would tell bun that we must have our constitutional rights on term* of equality In all drqpwt mi nis of the government. W. will remain With no poo ple nor In any government as inferiors, gllr Hoard? Then you will assert your constitutional rights In a constitutional way. Mr. Clark replied (bat he would first exhaust an con stitutional means, bst he would tell tbe republicans that unless m no thing was speedily done to restore peace and give the border stab# guarantee* of their constitutional rights, tbe I'nion canm4 be preserved , and they will go where they can tnd their interest* better protected, Ho hwped, however, that they would be spved from such a necessity. RPWH Of NR. GIlJtKR ON THR CRZUS. Mr. Giinrs, (opp.) of N. C., said a desperate strmg'e was now going on in all the Southern States to consum mate that which Houth Carolina now avowed she had at hsarl for the last thirty or forty years. When he was s boy, the doctrise of nullification was preached In that State. It was declared to be a peaceful remedy, the only remedy by which the diflbrences which then existed be tween that Stole aid the general government could be settled, and by which the Union oould be saved; but when that doctrine was crushed out by General Jackson, the next resource was accession, and In order to give some httlo plausibility to It, It was said to h? of a most peaceful character. Nullification ooukl never have many friend", and secession would tiave but very few friend* were It not for that decoy doctrine, the fruit ful and seductive recommendation which w is ntt* had to It. that it was pea' eful In character, lie would enmo to the history of events within the last twelve months [GUNUNVEO ON KUiUril 1'AUK.)
