The Defence ©1 Washington. It is astonishing how speedily nations become partially accustomed to the most dreadful political disorders, and the most extraordinary events. It is a part of the veritable history of the present period that the concentration of a considerable military force at the Federal Capital hag been deemed necessary to preserve peace and order there, and to prevent a desperate attempt on the part of conspirators to overturn the Central Government and to resist the inauguration of the President who has recently been constitutionally elected. On Thursday, a resolution was offered in the House ol Representatives, which fully tested the sense of that body in regard to the wisdom and propriety of the energetic steps recently taken by General Scott, under the directions of the "War Department, for the protection of order in Washington. Mr. Bbasch. of Forth Carolina, offered the fol- %\_t Ifaxtn To _ADVKKM9_ERS.—The circulation of Thus Fkbss exceeds that of any othe...

WASHINGTON CORRESPONDENCE Letter from " Occasional. " (.Correspondence of The Press.! Wabhihgtoit, Feb. 15,1861. The report of the committee appointed to investigate the facts _connected with; the abstraction of the bonds and securities for the protection of the Indian_*, continues to be discussed in all circles. The _effeat npon Qov. Floyd, , late Secretary of War, has been such as to compel him to come out in a card (which was published in your telegraphic columns _yesterday,) in which be states that the report is " an ex parte arraignment of my official conduct, upon ex parte testimony taken in secret in my absence " Now, the truth is, that Qov. Floyd appeared before the committee three times, was examined at length, and had the benefit of every statement he could make in his own defenoe. If a more elaborate defence had been possible and he had asked to make it, his request would have undoubtedly been granted, as in the case of Judge Black before the Covode committee. But...

_iPnbiie _Amusements. Some persons, it must be _confessed, have a passion for fishing in troubled waters. _Amang these is Laura Keen*, the actress.

More recently, she sued Mr Moses Kitnball, of Boston, foe infringement of her (pretended and non-existant) copy* right in the aforesaid play. Mr. Kimball met her with a denial of her own identity—a denial that there was any such person as " Laura Keene, "—and an assertion that the person who claimed, under the name of "Laura Keene,'' to have taken out full naturalization papers at New _STork, in _^uac, 1859. ¦was altog...

The Peace Conference. The committee appo inted by the Peace Conference at Washington , yesterday reported a plan of pacification which is a compound of the Orittenden , Guthrie, and Border-State Committee propositions, and strong hopes of its adoption by Congress appear to be entertained. If our legislators could realize the deep anxiety which prevails among the business men of the country for an adjustment of the existing difficulties, and the gloom and uncertainty which enshrouds the whole future of hundreds of thousands of their constituents, we do not believe they would permit any minor disagreements to prevent a speedy settlement. It is a thousand times better for a man to have a little finger amputated, however painful and disagreeable he may consider such a dismemberment, than to have his existence seriously endangered. And the objections which are so strenuously urged against even com paratively trifling concessions are of but little importance when weighed in the scale ...
