Doc. 26.--correspondence between Senator Toombs and Mayor Wood. Milledgeville, Jan. 24, 1861. To His Honor Mayor Wood: Is it true that any arms intended for and consigned to the State of Georgia have been seized by public authorities in New York? Your answer is important to us and to New York. Answer at once. R. Toombs. To this the Mayor returned the following answer: Hon. Robert Toombs, Milledgeville, Go.: In reply to your dispatch, I regret to say that arms intended for and consigned to the State of Georgia, have been seized by the Police of this State, but that the City of New York should in no way be made responsible for the outrage. As Mayor, I have no authority over the Police. If I had the power I should summarily punish the authors of this illegal and unjustifiable seizure of private property. Fernando Wood. --N. Y. Times, Jan. 26.
Doc. 55.--the feeling in the city of New York. From the first announcement that hostilities had actually commenced in Charleston Harbor, and that Major Anderson's garrison of sixty or seventy men were sustaining and replying as best they could, to a fierce bombardment from a force more than one hundred times their number, down to the moment it was announced that he was compelled to strike his flag, the feeling that stirred the people as one man, here, and so far as we can learn, elsewhere also, was too deep, too strong, and will be too enduring, to be characterized by the term excitement. Never have we seen anything like it. While the keen sagacity of the public mind readily detected the absurdity and downright falsehood of many of the despatches, yet those received on Friday night, created a sharp relish for more; consequently, Saturday morning, all the forenoon, and throughout the whole day, business was forsaken or limited to the briefest necessity. At the Stock Board cheers

Doc. 58.--proclamation by the Mayor. Mayor's office, New York, April 15, 1861. to the people of the city of New York: As Chief Magistrate, representing the whole people, I feel compelled at this crisis to call upon them to avoid excitement and turbulence. Whatever may be or may have been individual positions or opinions on questions of public policy, let us remember that our country now trembles upon the brink of a precipice, and that it requires a patriotic and honest effort to prevent its final destruction. Let us ignore the past, rising superior to partisan considerations, and rally to the restoration of the Constitution and the Union as they existed in the days and in the spirit of our fathers. Whether this is to be accomplished by fratricidal warfare or by concession, conciliation and sacrifice, men may differ, but all will admit that here at least harmony and peace should prevail. Thus may we, under the guidance of Divine Providence, set an example of peace and good
nt and coercive attitude of the citizens very generally of the city of New York. Upon the revolutionary action of the seven Gulf States there South have, therefore, supposed that they could rely upon the city of New York to sympathize with them in their rebellion. ( No, never. ) Whathe American heart is made of, whether that heart beats in the city of New York or in the Western prairies. It shows they know nothing of libom among your midst nearly one thousand men, the flower of the city of New York, to resent the insult to your flag. (Loud applause.) You havehich is now presented around this square to-day. It is in the city of New York that we find that every man lays aside his business and his pr its defence. (Cheers.) I may say that the great heart of the city of New York throbs lively to-day when the news comes teeming from the tele This mighty gathering of the patriotic citizens of the great city of New York speaks in no equivocal language. It is not in my power to giv
n, whether members of the Bench, practitioners at the Bar, or our students and clerks, to rally in the defense of our dearly cherished institutions, against the felonious assaults now made upon them. And the members of the profession in the City of New York, and those connected with them in the administration of justice, acknowledging the high obligations of fidelity to the Union and the Constitution, in every emergency and against every assault, and feeling the imperative call upon them in theis Bar, who may be in service in the Army or Navy of the United States, to assume and perform for his benefit any professional business he may have in charge, and without expense to him. Resolved, That the members of the profession in the City of New York will stand by the Union, the Constitution, and the supremacy of the laws, in every and any emergency; and to that they pledge their means and personal efforts, as well against aggression from abroad as against efforts at home; and they hold
Doc. 99.--George law's letter. New-York, April 25, 1861. To the President of the United States--Sir: The people of the Free States have now been for some time cut off from communication with the capital of their country, by a mob in the city of Baltimore. The troops of the General Government have been attacked and shot down by the mob, in their passage through that city in pursuance to the orders of the Government. The lines of communication have been destroyed, and the authority of the General Government has been set at defiance. This state of things has been permitted to continue for nearly a week, and our troops going to the capital have been delayed, and have had to find their way by irregular and circuitous routes, very much to their inconvenience. Citizens of the Free States have either been prevented altogether from visiting the capital or from returning thence to their homes, or have been compelled to run the gauntlet, been subjected to all sorts of insult and da

We now, as officers of banks in the City of New York, doing business with banks, bankers, and merchants of Georgia and other States, known as the Confederate States of America, now in revolt against the Governm inst., formally denying the truth of the statements made by Gov. Brown, of Georgia, in his proclamation of the 26th ult. You affirm that the banks of the City of New York have paid, and continue to pay, in every case, all drafts against funds deposited, whether by Southern, Western, or Northern banks, bankers, and dealers, andemphatically in consonance with the sentiment of the commercial and business classes throughout this State. The sterling uprightness of the bankers of the City of New York is widely known. Their sensitiveness is, therefore, natural under the circumstances, and it is but proper that they should meet, with a prompt and broad den

airman. Geo. T. Newhall, Secretary. war Department, Adjutant-General's office, Washington, May 30, 1861. Special Order No. 146. The commanding officer of the Seventh Regiment of New York Volunteers, will proceed with his regiment to the city of New York, where it will be mustered out of the service of the United States, by Lieut. M. Cogswell, Eighth Regiment. It is the desire of the War Department, in relinquishing the services of this gallant regiment, to make known the satisfaction thament in an hour of dark and trying necessity; the committee desire to unite their congratulations with those of their fellow-citizens, in extending a welcome hand to cheer the return of a body of soldiers who conferred such high honor on the city of New York. Resolved, That this committee will take pleasure in attending the reception to be given to the Seventh Regiment, on its arrival in this city to-morrow. Resolved, That these proceedings be published, and a copy furnished to Col. Leffer
common being those of Turner Societies exhibiting an ogling night owl with a torch in one claw and a sword in the other, superscribed by the word Bahnfrei, (Clear the track.) In front of the City Hall, a review by the Common Council, and presentations by private citizens, took place. The Hon. Samuel B. Ruggles presented a flag, and said: Colonel Weber and the Officers and Soldiers under your command:-- In behalf of Mrs. Charles Edward Strong, and other patriotic ladies of the City of New York, I present you this National Flag for your Regiment, which they commit, with undoubting faith, to your brave and loyal keeping. To whom could they more properly entrust it than to you, the lineal descendants of the Germans of those early ages who, amid the verdant forests and sparkling waters of the Fatherland, bravely battled for liberty and freedom against the cruel domination of imperious, slaveholding, and all-enslaving Rome? Gallant Germans! Friends and brethren! we hail you
rance. (Cheers.) They are as the sons of Abraham, who went forth to fight the Philistines. I love that flag, (pointing to the banner,) and though I go upon the torrid, sandy beach of Pensacola, and die there; though I go on the plains of Texas, it matters not. If I go on the plains of Virginia and gain renown, it is well; but wherever we are told to go. we go there, as long as it is for the honor and perpetuity of the flag, the freedom of the world, and the protection of the beautiful city of New York. (Tremendous cheering.) That man (pointing to the standard-bearer) will carry that flag, and when he goes another will carry it who will not be afraid of ten thousand traitors--(cheers)--and when he dies every man will jump to grasp the flag. (Cheers.) It will take, however, a good many to kill him, and I don't think the ball is moulded, or will be moulded this year, to kill either him or me. (Cheers and laughter.) Ladies, I thank you from the inmost recesses of my heart. I again exp
