e a reconstruction, they would not dare to avow the fact, through fear of exciting the contempt and hatred of the women, who like the men, are true friends to the cause of Southern independence. Everything is perfectly quiet here. The soldiers have long since gone to Pensacola, and are now no doubt burning with the desire to test the vaunted bravery of Lieut. Slemmer, of Fort Pickens notoriety. The people of the South are kept well posted on National affairs, and are not back ward in expressing their delight at the dilemma of Lincoln, regarding Forts Sumter and Pickens, who finds himself in the condition of the drunken man who had hold of the lamp-post. He was afraid to let go, because he would fall, and couldn't hold on because he would freeze. Virginia is still hopefully looked to by her Southern friends, and I can't, for the life of me, believe that her patriotic sons will allow her to continue much longer tied to the tail of an Abolition Government. Arlington.
From Charleston. Charleston, April 9, 12 M. --Fort Sumter is to be reinforced by the U. S. Government peaceably, if they can; forcibly, if they must. Seven more companies of Confederate troops were sent down to the posts in the harbor at midnight last night. A conflict is inevitable. Virginius. Later. Charleston, April 9. 1 P. M. --Lieut.Talbot returned here from Washington yesterday, accompanied by Mr. Chew, a special agent of Lincoln's with dispatches for Maj.Anderson. Gen.Beauregard refused to permit them to visit Fort Sumter, and they left again for Washington at 11 o'clock last night. V.
the ranks, many of them being full privates. Working at the erection of sand-batteries, ex-Congressman Pugh can shovel sand and make excavations like a son of Erin hurrying a task job on a Louisiana plantation. --Senator Bullock, despite his bulky condition, works with a will, and several professional men of undoubted talent work as laboriously as a New York hod carrier. This is the secret of the South's power. With such a noble and chivalrous spirit pervading all classes, the devil or Abe Lincoln cannot crush them. While our population were fleeing from the apparently near approach of war, whole families having deserted their houses and sought refuge in shanties in the woods, over twenty ladies from Alabama came down here with their children and servants to join their husbands, who were soldiering away down in this part of Florida, which they all say naturally and geographically belongs to Alabama. They are about right. The actions of these gallant ladies in joining their
rd to the movements of troops, have led to all sorts of speculation in the barroom and club-rooms of the Capital, but the knowing ones have come to the conclusion that the reasons for these sudden movements are:-- First. The result of the municipal elections in St. Louis, Cincinnati, and other parts of the West, and in New York; and the loss of two Congressmen in Connecticut, and two in Rhode Island. Second. The efforts of some of the Western politicians to infuse backbone into Lincoln, so as to satisfy the Northwest that the Government is determined to secure to them forever the free navigation of the Mississippi, which they are afraid of losing. Third. The fear of their being compelled to repeal the Morrill tariff in consequence of the importation of foreign goods being made through the South under the low tariff of the Southern Confederacy, and the consequent loss to the party of New England and Pennsylvania in the total annihilation of the principle of protectio
e made from those words in italics. A pretty state of things, truly. The slaveholding State of Missouri invaded by a horde of speculating Puritan adventurers, who squat down in her principal commercial city and go deliberately to work to abolitionize the State, and when their own imported free-soil vote is legally and constitutionally beaten at the polls, threatens to draw the sword, and compel Missouri to remain in the Union at the point of the bayonet. The next step will be to send for Lincoln to support the Union party with two or three of Scorr's mercenary regiments. The Democrat proclaims that "there is no alternative to those who wish to stay in St. Louis and the Union at the same time, but an appeal to arms." Would it not be better for these New England squatters, who are determined to make the most they can out of the new commercial advantages of St. Louis and at the same time to abolitionize the State of Missouri, to give up this latter project and to return to their
From Washington — the determination to reinforce Fort Sumter--the answer of the Confederate States. Washington, April 9. --Gen. Beauregard, yesterday, received official notice from the Federal Government, that it was its intention to supply Fort Sumter with provisions, &c., through Mr. Chew, an agent of President Lincoln. The Herald'scorrespondent states that it is most positive that Lieut. Talbot conveyed instructions to Major Anderson that the Government would supply him forth with, and in the event that the vessels performing that duty were fired upon, to open his batteries and the Government would sustain him at every hazard. The correspondent adds that the Government has at last determined to enforce the laws and do it vigorously, but not in an aggressive spirit. When the Administration determined, a few days since, to order Major Anderson out of Fort Sumter, it also determined to do so on one condition — namely, that the fort and property in it should not be mol
Another insult to Virginia. Another of old Abe's appointments, which perhaps transcends in its insolent contempt and hatred of the South the political promotion of old Giddings, and of the five Tribune editors, is that of one A. Wattles, as U. S. Marshal for the Territory of Nebraska. The only earthly claim, says the Petersburg Express, that this creature had to Executive favor arose from his active participation in John Brown's murderous, incendiary and predatory outrages upon the pro-slavery people in Kansas. A ventilation of the Harper's Ferry record, that forms a conspicuous episode in the proceedings of our last Legislature, leaves no room to doubt that be was deeply implicated in the infamous raid of the old Bandit-Saint upon Virginia. The selection of such a wretch by Lincoln to fill a high national trust is, under the circumstances, about as cool an insult to Virginia as could well have been inflicted upon her.
partment of State at Washington, passed over the South Carolina Railroad last Sunday evening, bearing dispatches from the Southern Commissioners to President Davis.
