Wreck. --The wrecked schr. Harriet Newell, Capt. Samuel Keach, which left Norfolk, Virginia, on the 5th inst., with a cargo of 3,000 bushels of corn for Providence, Rhode Island, off Absecon Beach, New Jersey, on the 7th inst., has been published. The Captain, and five seamen, and Mr. Henry M. Davis, a passenger, a son of Capt. Henry Davis, of this city, passed the whole night of the 7th on the cabin house, the vessel having sunk to that depth, with the waves breaking over her. They were covered with quilts only, on which the next morning the ice was four inches thick. All hands were badly frostbitten.
Major Anderson is dangerously ill in Fort Sumter, with pneumonia. He sent over for Dr. Robertson, of this city, who is now attending him regularly. President Davis is to be in this city on Thursday next, to look around and see what is to be done in military matters. He doubtless will have things put in the right direction very soon. Mr. Memminger, of this city, is spoken of as Secretary of State in the new Confederacy. I suppose he will be chosen by President Davis for that high position. No man in the Confederacy has superior claims. Mr. Memminger is a gentleman of the first order of mind, logical, discriminating and comprehensive — a hat he will have all the forts vacated as soon as Lincoln is inaugurated. Oh! how the people of Virginia will love him in less than a year form this date. President Davis' inaugural excites general admiration. My lord, the king Abraham, is improving some what in his itinerant tunable. At Buffalo and at Albany, he exhibited fa
th Carolinian, says: Letters were received here yesterday, from Washington, stating that the coercion policy was daily losing ground, and that Virginia would certainly join the Southern movement. It was also telegraphed from Richmond, that Davis and Stephens were regarded there as reconstructionists. This is laughed at here as a good joke. It is highly probable that Davis and Stephens, a month ago, were both for reconstruction; but in revolutions, opinions mature rapidly. I am perfectDavis and Stephens, a month ago, were both for reconstruction; but in revolutions, opinions mature rapidly. I am perfectly satisfied, from positive assurances made by those who know their sentiments, that both these gentlemen are now heart and hand with the movement, and will never pull down the flag of the Southern Confederacy. Hon. Wm. L. Yancey was charged by Congress with the duty of meeting Hon. Jeff. Davis on his arrival at Montgomery. He discharged that duty, and after the President had addressed the crowd, he added: As the distinguished gentleman who has just addressed you has said, the coun
n men and Southern independence have their way; but future events will prove to them that they who would themselves be free, must do as these people are doing — strike the blow. I hear no threats of war upon the people of the North by the Government of the South; indeed, such as I have spoken with in the subject, have deprecated hostilities, but have at the same time declared earnestly and emphatically that if war was the election of Lincoln, he should have his fill to his heart's content. Davis is to take command in case hostilities commence, and in anticipation of such an event, he has made preparations to an extent little suspected outside of the States particularly interested. Two companies of soldiers leave here in the morning for Fort Pickens, and Gen. Clarke, who commands the Mississippi forces, is ordered to proceed to that point forthwith. Judging of what is to take place in the vicinity of Fort Pickens in the course of the next thirty days, by the great preparations maki
