y session, by reason of the declarations contained in the proclamation of President Lincoln of the 15th April.--My proclamation convoking you was issued on the 12th by the declaration of hostile purposes, contained in the message sent by President Lincoln to the Governor of South Carolina, on the 8th April. As the proclamation of President Lincoln, of the 15th April, repeated the same hostile intention, in more specific terms and on a much more extensive scale, it created a stronger impresit and see." In the morning's paper I read: "An authorized messenger from President Lincoln informed Gov. Pickens and General Beauregard that provisions will be sentpatches to L. P. Walker, Secretary of war. An authorized message from President Lincoln just informed Gov. Pickens and myself that provisions will be sent to Forused, he would proceed to reduce it. On the same day I had been told that President Lincoln had said that none of the vessels sent to Charleston were war vessels, an
urnment. The committee of conference reported an amendment to Mr. Wallis' resolution that the Legislature adjourn on Thursday at 11 o'clock, until June 4th; also to appoint a committee of four from each House to lay said resolutions before President Lincoln and Jeff. Davis, and ask a cessation of hostilities until after the assembling of Congress. The Senate adopted Mr. Wallis' resolution with the above amendments, but the House at the evening session refused to adopt the conference commioners, as above mentioned. In the House of Delegates, Mr. Wallis reported a bill calling a Sovereign Convention, which was laid on the table. The joint resolution from the Senate appointing a committee of four from each House to visit President Lincoln and Jefferson Davis, and the Governors of Pennsylvania and Virginia, was reported upon unfavorably by Mr. Willis, chairman of the Committee on Federal Relations, giving certain reasons therefore. The report was adopted. They also repo
the slave traders are said to congregate, and where the party of Mr. Lincoln was small and weak a few months back, all traditions, all intere lasting struggle may possibly be begun. The States faithful to Mr. Lincoln have now accepted the doctrine that secession is treason, and thhat as long as they, the Secessionists, refuse to acknowledge President Lincoln, acts of hostility must take place between the two sections —r accurately, but the present telegraphic dispatches announce that Lincoln's Proclamation had been met by defiance, as general as the enthusipassions of the multitude have been everywhere roused against President Lincoln as an assailant of the rights of the South. Without giving iver, even remained firm, it would have been a difficult task for Mr. Lincoln to carry on such a war as he meditates. A march from the North the side of the Unionists, yet the damages of an offensive war are so great that President Lincoln may even now well hesitate to begin it.
m the city. The New York Courier and Enquirer insists that it is the intention of the Confederate States to invade Pennsylvania and pillage Philadelphia. Hon. Howell Cobb, in a letter to the Athens Banner, announces his unalterable determination to retire to private life on the expiration of his present term of office. John P. Kennedy, U. S. Senator from Maryland, has issued a long appeal against secession. Harriet Beecher Stowe terms the present invasion of the South by Lincoln, the "Holy War." The Wheeling traitors propose to divide the State, and call the western portion "New Virginia." It is stated that it was $100, instead of $5,000, which ex-President Buchanan gave to the Pennsylvania volunteers. Captain Franklin Gardner, of the 10th regiment U. S. Infantry, resigned on the 6th of April last. A. E. Sanders, and M. R. P. Garnett, of Virginia, clerks in the Treasury Department at Washington, have been removed. Col. Robert Anderson left
rt, though not a pound of freight passes from port to port; but a community of ship-owners and sailors can not. The Lincoln Government is inaugurating precisely the policy which must ruin the North. To stop the Southern trade is to paralyze thr largest and most profitable customer. Instead of raising barriers against commercial intercourse, the clear policy of Lincoln would be to remove and keep down all barriers. If he did not undertake the work for us, the South, in self-defence, woude with Europe; but the South would not gain more from this commerce than the North would gain by such trade as, but for Lincoln's policy, it could contrive to keep open with the South. Nor will the odium which the North will incur in Europe from t these manufactures in the South, was a prohibition of the Northern rival article. No sooner is that prohibition decreed by Lincoln, than the new manufacture springs up spontaneously around us. Surely are the Fates working for us in this contest.
an excellent bargain for the Yankees to get at eleven millions. We hope there will be no retaliation. We hope that no one will offer a reward for the head of Abe Lincoln or GenScott, or Com. Pendergrast. Indeed, a friend suggests that a large reward should be offered to any one who will guarantee that the heads of Lincoln, ScottLincoln, Scott, Pendergrast & Co. shall be kept on their shoulders. We can wish cur vindictive enemy no worse luck than to have those incompetent skulls just where they are. It would be shameful extravagance and inhuman contempt of the brute creation to offer the reward of a calf's head for the whole lot. One word in regard to the infamousle of this malicious paragraph is probably the suggestion of that "capable manager," the "untiring" and "energetic" aspirant, Lieut. Gillis But neither he nor the Lincoln Administration can impair the fame of Lieut. Maury any more than they can extinguish the stars where he has written his name, or chain the tides of the ocean whic
The day of election. Keep it before the People, that Thursday next is the day of voting on the Ordinance of Secession. It is asserted that on, or immediately before that day, the Lincoln Administration will invade Virginia at three points, and possibly more, for the purpose of creating a huge uproar, causing the whole population to fly to arms, and thus omitting, in the excitement, this important duty of voting, whilst Carlile and other traitors of his stamp, reinforced by men from Pennsylvania and Ohio, who will have no right to vote, will throw a heavy vote into the ballot-boxes, and thus avail themselves of the suicidal impression of most people, that there is no use in going through the empty formality of voting. We invoke the country press of Virginia to place the patriotic people of the State upon their guard. As the chosen people of old rebuilt their temple, armed with the tools of the artisan and the weapons of the warrior, so let Virginia rebuild the majestic
any one a civil answer. "Old Abe." it is said, is absolutely afraid to go near "Fuss and Feathers," as the latter has not forgotten and never will, the remark of Lincoln to Rev. Dr. Fuller, that he was "Scott's legal master." Scott, who was present at the time of the interview, managed to restrain his passion until the Doctor and the members of the Young Men's Christian Association left, but they had scarcely cleared the room, before he let out on Lincoln. At one time it was thought that Cameron and Seward would have to interfere to prevent a personal collision. Scott raved like a madman, and told Lincoln that he was a stupid fool, a most consummate ass, ke a madman, and told Lincoln that he was a stupid fool, a most consummate ass, and lavished sundry other choice epithets upon the devoted head of his 'legal master.' Our informant states that he finally worked himself up into such a passion, that his nervous system could no longer stand the shock, and he was conveyed to bed.".
ity, numbering 126 men, and in command of Capt. Owens, are stationed here. They are a fine looking set of fellows and are determined to do their best in this great struggle. By request of the company, Rev. R. R. Jones preached to them this afternoon on their camp-ground. His remarks were fully calculated to fill every mind with seriousness, and I could see now and then huge bears stealing down the checks of those brave men. We are very much annoyed here by the presence of one of Lincoln's ships just off the mouth of the James, and out of our reach. It seems that her object is to seize all boats, large and small, that may attempt to pass by her. Day before yesterday she chased a small boat under the guns of this Point, having on board a bearer of dispatches to Gen. Gwin; and yesterday she seemed very indignant that a poor free negro should attempt to catch a few oysters within five miles of her. They fired at him several times, and though entirely out of reach of her guns,
Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.letter from Missouri. High Hill, Mo., May 6, 1861. Previous to the taking of Fort Sumter, I considered Missouri sold to the Black Republican party, but the Proclamation of Lincoln, the secret removal of the State arms from Jefferson Barracks, followed by the refusal of Gov. Jackson to furnish the required regiments, has produced a considerable change, and strong hopes are now entertained that this State will go out very soon; in short, many of the Black Republicans now admit the fact, and are making arrangements to leave the State. The vote for Speaker of the called Legislature has nearly confirmed that belief. Five regiments of Germans and Abolitionists have been formed in St. Louis, and will soon be off for the headquarters at Washington, done, it is said, as a rebuke to Gov. Jackson. From what I learn from the True American, it is regarded as a favorable omen for the cause of the South, thereby weakening the strength of the B
