    Cabinet Rumors from Pennsylvania.

    HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 31, 1860.

    There is strong antagonism to the appointment of Senator Cameron to a position in Mr. Lincoln’s Cabinet.

    Mr. Lincoln telegraphed to Hon. Alexander K. McClure to come to Springfield, and he left for that city to-day.

    Mr. McClure is opposed to Mr. Cameron, and the former will meet the latter at Springfield, when it is supposed that a violent rupture will ensue, which it is believed will end in the appointment of Hon. Wm. L. Dayton in place of either of them.

    HARRISBURG, Pa., Dec. 31 - Noon.

    A despatch received by a citizen to-night announces that General Cameron has been appointed Secretary of the Treasury, and that he is now in Springfield, and will accept the appointment. The authority for this is deemed reliable.
