The women of the South. The Charleston Mercury publishes the following extract of a letter received by a venerable gentleman of that city from his niece, now living in Georgia, which fully shows the spirit which animates the matrons of the South, and evidences that they are the worthy descendants of the women of '76: "You know that it has always been, from childhood, a subject of regret to me that I was not of the other sex; but never have I felt it more bitterly than at this time. A poor, weak woman, that can do nothing for her country, unless it is to nurse the sick and wounded, which I know I would do to the best of my ability; but you may rest assured if there is a gun lying idle that could be made effective, hero is an individual that would not stop to think of petticoats, but put it to the best use she knows how, and I would not hesitate to make old Scott the first victim if I could. "My boys are healthy and strong fellows. I wish they were old enough to do du

From Washington.[special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington,, Jan. 20, 1861. Georgia has gone out like a deer, at a bound. She did not even touch the fence in going over the States, two of them among the Original thirteen are lost to the Union. Will they ever return. The wisest of their Members tell me over. Could they obtain equal rights, with the power to check the great and growing forth, according to the plan of Mr. Hunter, that of Mr. Phillips, they would return.-- at of this there is no hope, Meantime, war is close at hand. Sooner or later. Forts Sumter and Pickens will have to be taken. There is no avoiding it. Neither Buchanan nor Lincoln will surrender them. The only chance of escaping immediate hostilities is in the truce proposed by the Southern Senators to Gov. Pickens. But the end will be the same. And if it be true that Lieut. Talbot, Major Anderson's messenger, has returned with orders to the Charlestonians to be erecting batteries arou

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.affairs in Charleston. Charleston, Jan. 19, 1861 Old Secession" (our old cannon) has just announced Georgia out of the Union, by a majority of 119. Who doubted it? The Northern-papers make a great "hullabaloo" about there being some persons in every State opposed to secession. If it were it would not be anything to be wondered but it is not so. There is a respectable minority in Alabama and Georgia who would be glad to wait a while to sGeorgia who would be glad to wait a while to see what the North will do., but, be sure there is but one sentiment in all the Cotton States about the ultimate secession of these States if ample guarantees were not given. There certainly is not a tithe of such as these even, as there are at the North those who will side with the South in the event of collision. See the meeting, a few nights ago, in New York, of the working men. Nothing yet has been made public from Col. Hayne. Our troops are vigorously preparing the batteries, and ma

rdinance of Secession will be signed almost, if not quite, unanimously. [second Dispatch.] Milledgeville,, Jan. 21. --The following preamble and resolution, written by Hon. A. H. Stephens, and Judge Stephens, and presented by Judge Nisbet, were adopted unanimously: Whereas, a lack of unanimity in the action of this Convention on the passage of the Ordinance of Secession indicates a difference of opinion among the members of the Convention, not so much as to the rights which Georgia claims, or wrongs of which she complains, as to the remedy and its application before a resort to other measures of redress; and Whereas, it is desirable to give expression to that intention which really exists among all the members of the Convention to sustain the State in the course of action which she has pronounced to be proper for the occasion: Therefore, Resolved, That all the members of the Convention, including those who voted against the Ordinance as well as those who vot
