A Suggestion. To the _Edwob or thk _Peess : If the object of the South ia to have separate legislation upon questions relating to the poouliar institution of their section, could not the measure be achieved in a more reasonable way, by dividing the Legislature in place of dividing the country ?—a rule of the House, for instance, as an aot of courtesy towards the South, declaring that, after _conjoint deliberation, so as not to deprive the North of the privilege of moral suasion, the South alone should vote upon the question. Tha present territorial possessions to be divided hy the proposed line of 36 deg. 30 min., and no Territory to be hereafter annexed but by a two-third vote of each section voting separately. Should this arrangement be refused by the Southern people, and their readers persist in carrying oat the policy of Barr and of Arnold, still there would remain the constitutional remedy, suggested by ex-Governor Wickliffe, of Kentuoky, viz: a blockade of their ports, and t...

WASHINGTON COBRESPONDENCE Letter from Occasional* " I Correspondence of The Frew.] _Wasbikotok, February 17,1881. Mr. Lincoln's different speeches on Ms journey towards Washington have aet everybody thinking and talking. There are as many _oonstruotiona placed upon them as we have parties and factions. The Disunionlst asserts that Mr. Lincoln in these speeches has declared war against the South; the ultra Republican applauds them as evidences of a determination on the part of the President elect to make no compromise ; the conservative Repnblioan searches through them for such sentences as give him a directly contrary assurance; while the people of the Border Slave States, and the nation* al Democrats everywhere, indulge the hope that as Mr. Lincoln reduces the distance between himself and this political centre, he will modify expressions which now seem to be unexpectedly extreme. The National. Intelli&en.cer, always cautions and courteous,- had an _artiale three day...

A Pathway Opened tor Peace and Reconciliation. In the midst of the distractions and perils which now overhang the country, thousands who are suffering unmerited distress are looking with anxious eyes for a practical method of extricating the nation from the unprecedented embarrassments into which it has been plunged. Plan after plan has been proposed, but serious and apparently insurmountable obstacles have arisen to prevent their adoption, until many of the warmest friends of the Union have been almost ready to abandon all hope of its preservation. The only true remedy, after all, is to be found _|n the direct action of the American _peeple, and if they have not sufficient _patriotism and wisdom to manifest a proper spirit, then all indeed is lost. It will be seen by a special despatch from our Washington correspondent that a majority of both branches of Congress will probably be willing to authorize the submission to a direct rote of the proposition which the Peace Conference ...

_Wabhihstom, February 17. Tbe Republican Plan_^of Ad justment. It ia apparent that the Republicans in both branches will agree to submit whatever may be done by ths Peace Congress to a vote of the people of all the State ' s of the Union.

Pnblic Amusements. The record of the past week must be brief. Mr. Rarey has certainly won most of the praise and pence. On Saturday evening he devoted the receipts to charitable purposes, but the unpleasant weather prevented a large attendance. Yet, the performances were capital—two or Ihree rough customers being brought forward. Moreover, Mr. Rarey gave the whole history, never before related here, of his first acquaintance with Cruiser, and the processes by which he finally subdued him. John Brougham's new comedy (brought oat with great _euooess at Wallaek'_s, after his departure for England) is to be represented this evening, fur the first time, at the Arch-street Theatre.

The _Disnnionists and the Compromise "Propositions. One of the most common objections made to all the compromise propositions which have been brought forward at Washington for the peaceful adjustment of the existing difficulties, is that they provide for great concessions to a factious minority, which, failing in its attempts to control the Democratic party at Charleston sod Baltimore, endeavored to destroy that organization, was badly beaten in the las* Presidential election, and is essentially rebellions and treasonable in its character. The deep-seated aversion of nearly the whole population of the North to the arrogant and haughty dictation of the Secession leaders is frequently, and with no little success, appealed to as a justification for stern and unbending hostility to every proposal ior conciliation and concession. But it should not be forgotten, by those who feel inclined to be influenced by this kind of reasoning, that they cannot possibly pursue any policy which wil...
