e, to be pressed. The substance of this statement I communicated to you the same evening by letter. Five days elapsed, and I called with a telegram from Gen. Beauregard, to the effect that Sumter was not evacuated, but that Maj. Anderson was at work making repairs. The next day, after conversing with you, I communicated to was, Faith as to Sumter fully kept — wait and see. In the morning's paper, I read, An authorized messenger from President Lincoln informed Gov. Pickens and Gen. Beauregard that provisions would be sent to Fort Sumter peaceably, or otherwise by force. This was the 8th of April, at Charleston, the day following your last assuraed in connection with these promises, is the proximate cause of the great calamity. I have a profound conviction that the telegrams of the 8th of April, of Gen. Beauregard, and of the 10th of April, of Gen. Walker, the Secretary of War, can be referred to nothing else than their belief that there has been systematic duplicity pr
and had a long interview with Gov. Pickens and Gen. Beauregard, with reference, it was said, to the terms T the fort would be provisioned at all hazards. Gen. Beauregard immediately telegraphed the fact to Montgomery;ould very soon be starved out, if not relieved--Gen. Beauregard, at 11 P. M., again addressed Major Anderson, ad tea and coffee as faintly remembered luxuries. Beauregard shot up like Jonah's gourd to the altitude of theunced himself (incorrectly) as a messenger from Gen. Beauregard, sent to inquire on what terms he would evacuate the fortress. Maj. Anderson calmly replied: Gen. Beauregard is already acquainted with my only terms. Afterd for further conference; and, having reported to Beauregard, returned, two or three hours afterward, with a snorable to Maj. Anderson, and hardly less so to Gen. Beauregard; though it was the manifest interest of the Conning, I accepted terms of evacuation offered by Gen. Beauregard (being the same offered by him on the 11th inst
m. Democrat as well as Republican, Conservative and Radical, instinctively feel that the guns fired at Sumter were aimed at the heart of the American Republic. Not even in the lowest groggery of our city would it be safe to propose cheers for Beauregard and Gov. Pickens. The Tories of the Revolution were relatively ten times as numerous here as are the open sympathizers with the Palmetto Rebels. It is hard to lose Sumter; it is a consolation to know that in losing it we have gained a united by the same occurrences — strikingly diverse was the reception there accorded to the President's Proclamation. On the evening of April 12th, the Confederates congregated at their capital, Montgomery, held high carnival over the tidings that Beauregard had, by order, opened fire that morning on Fort Sumter. As was natural, their Secretary of War, Mr. Leroy Pope Walker, was called out for a speech, and, in his response, predicted that the Confederate flag would float, before the 1st of May, o
re upon its assailants, when twenty-two persons fell dead--one of them a woman. A furious excitement was aroused by this tragedy, but inquiries established the endurance and forbearance of the volunteers, so long as patience was a virtue. The rage and hate of the Secessionists were intensified by this serious blow; but they took care not to provoke further collision. The unquestioned fact that the streets and alleys of the discomfited State Guard's Camp Jackson were named after Davis, Beauregard, etc., was not needed to prove the traitorous character of the organization. Capt. Lyon was made Brigadier-General of the First Brigade of Missouri Volunteers. Gen. William S. Harney returned from the East to St. Louis on the 12th, and took command of the Union forces. Nine days thereafter, lie entered into a truce or compact with Gen. Sterling Price, whereof the object was the pacification of Missouri. But this did not prevent the traitors from hunting and shooting Unionists in ever

ring the preceding day, saw plainly that our regiments at the front were not so many as they should be, and returned hastily that evening to Washington to procure a countermand of the order for battle; but arrived too late to see Gen. Scott and obtain it. Badly as Patterson had behaved, he had reported, on the 18th, by telegraph to Scott, his flank movement to Charlestown; which, any one could see, left Gen. Johnston at perfect liberty to hasten, with all his available force, to the aid of Beauregard at Manassas. And, on the 20th--the day before Bull Run — he had telegraphed to Scott that Johnston had actually departed on that errand. Gen. Scott, in commenting on Gen. Patterson's testimony in a deliberately written statement, made to the Committee on the Conduct of the War, says: As connected with this subject, I hope I may be permitted to notice the charge made against me, on the floor of Congress, that I did not stop Brig.
