ries already erected. There is a battery of earthwork, logs, and sand, on the end of Sullivan's Island, and also one on Morris' Island. Commander Pettigru, of Castle Pinckney, orders that no boat shall be allowed to approach the wharf-head without permission, under penalty of serious consequences in case of violation. The city river-front is carefully guarded. The Palmetto Guards, 100 strong, have charge of the arsenal under the palmetto flag, instead of the Federal flag. Collector Colcock notifies ship-masters that all vessels from and for ports outside of South Carolina must enter and clear at Charleston. The Columbia Artillery, numbering 50 men, arrived at 1 o'clock to-day, and proceeded to the harbor. They will use cannon belonging to Charleston.--Boston Transcript, Jan. 2. The South Carolina Convention passed an ordinance to define and punish treason. It declares that in addition to that already declared treason by the General Assembly, treason against the St

f hard fighting. Just as the command got under fire I remember giving him an order to carry to Major Nutt of his own regiment. The fire was rather severe at the time, and the formal military salute with which he received that last order was noticeable. Shortly afterwards he fell, shot in the head, directly in front of the enemy's battery, cheering and urging on the men, he himself being on horseback. His gallantry was conspicuous to the enemy, who gave his body an honorable burial. Colonel Colcock, commanding a portion of the enemy's force in that action, says that he saw his body about three hundred yards from their guns after the battle, and that he was struck by his beautiful appearance, and ordered a party to bury the remains. Thus fell this true Christian gentleman and soldier. No purer offering has been laid on the altar of freedom. Horace Sargent Dunn. Second Lieutenant 22d Mass. Vols. (Infantry), October 1; 1861; died at New York, May 22, 1862, of disease cont

e front a Star, with the words-- "Alone, if we must." "Now or Never." on the rear. A large transparency had the following mottoes: "Euchre--South Carolina Plays it Alone." "Her Right and Left Bowers. Georgia and Florida." "Her Trumps, Magrath, Colcock, Colner." "With these she claims a March." The engine-house of the Palmetto Company, which was illuminated, was saluted with three hearty cheers in passing. A similar tribute was paid to the house of the Independents on the top of which wallowing is a dispatch received by Collector Schell, of New York: Charleston,Nov. 13th, 1860. To A. Schell, Collector: It is reported that Clearances are refused at this office. Contradict. The business of the office goes on as usual. W. F.Colcock. The reported conduct of the Captain of the steamer Keystone State, at Charleston, was much exaggerated. He did not haul down the American and hoist the Palmetto flag, but merely saluted the Carolina flag by dipping his colors. [by T
ressed the crowd as "Citizens of the Southern republic," and said this was a pledge of Southern commerce to support the great movement of independence. During the speaking processions poured in from different sections of the city, with music and cannon, each saluting the Palmetto banner. On the dwellings there are hung out banners with such mottoes as "Now or never;" "No step backward;" "The argument is ended;" "Stand to your arms;" "South Carolina goes it alone — her trumps, McGrath, Colcock and Connor — with these she claims a march."--The tricolor flag was hung out from the theatre, with the words inserted-- Dieu et nos droits. Secession badges have become universal.--Even children are all adorned by mothers with the blue ribbon. All classes are arming for the contingency of coercion. Revolvers and patent fire arms are selling like hot cakes. Not a ship in the harbor has the federal flag flying, but far down the Bay it can still be discerned flying over Fort Moultrie.
0,000 volunteers. Saturday evening a crowd of two thousand persons assembled in front of the Congaree House. The Minute men turned out and marched down Main street, amid a great display of fire-works. Judge McGrath and Messrs. Conner, Colcock and Cunningham delivered addresses. --Mr. McGrath remarked that the people, the Legislature and Heaven say that South Carolina has a right to secede. If the Government at Washington says she has not, then prove it by taking the right away. Mr.Mr. Colcock said that, although the present crowd was a large one, he wished to see one more person present, and that was Abraham Lincoln. He would take him by the hand, bring him to the platform, and tell him to look upon that crowd, and then ask him if he ever expected to wave the sceptre of President over their heads. He said he had no doubt that "honest old Abe" would answer with down cast eyes, "Never!" Augusta, Ga., Nov. 10. --The Minute Men's meeting adjourned after hearing exciting
ne minute to remain an officer of the National Government. But, sir, what would have happened if an immediate acceptance had taken place in the reception of his resignation at Washington had he have forwarded his commission. Sir, it is well known to every man in the country that if Mr. Buchanan had received it, and appointed another to fill the thrown up commission, no Southern man would have accepted it — no man of South Carolina would have been allowed to do it.--[Applause.] Sir, Mr. Colcock saw, and he is a practical man, that if he had sent in his commission and it, had been accepted, as I presume it would, what would have been the result. I ask any man who knows anything of the commercial relations of Charleston, what would have been the consequence! All the power of the British navy would not have more effectually stopped the port of Charleston. It is well known that if a vessel passes the bar of Charleston without the regular papers, signed by the Collector of the Por
Affairs in South Carolina. Charleston, Dec. 29. --The Convention met at the usual hour. A message from Collector Colcock announced that himself and all his subordinates had commenced receiving duties under the authority of South Carolina, and were transferring other business in the name of the State. Dunkin said the Legislature had recently permitted the Banks of the State to delivered specie payment, and now specie was at 1 per cent. premium. This operated very unequally and unjustly; duties were payable in specie, and taxes were payable in the notes of the Banks. He offered a resolution that the collectors of the State should be authorized to receive duties in any bills of the Bank of the State. A motion to refer the resolution to the Committee on Foreign Relations was lost. The President received a communication from the Governor in relation to the harbor, and the Convention went into a secret session. [second Dispatch.] Charleston, Dec. 29.

nounces the arrival home of J. D. Elmore, the Commissioner from Alabama to this State. A correspondent writing to the Courier advises merchants to be careful how they ship merchandise on long voyages, and beware of privateers. Let them give the preference to British and French ships. Another correspondent suggests cotton breastworks for Charleston. Several Banks of the interior of the State have agreed to take their respective proportions of a $400,000 State loan. Collector Colcock gives notice that all vessels from ports outside of South Carolina must enter and clear. In the Convention to-day the President announced the appointment of the following Commissioners to the slaveholding States: Florida, L. W. Spratt; Alabama, A. P. Calhoun; Mississippi, M. L. Bonham; Louisiana, Jno. L. Manning; Arkansas, A. C. Spain. Georgia and Texas are not mentioned. [Fifth Dispatch.] Charleston, Jan. 1. --The Convention yesterday passed and made public an ordinance
