Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.Affairs in Norfolk and Portsmouth. Norfolk, Va., April 11, 1861. Great excitement prevailed here yesterday, out of the fact that a number of dispatches had been received stating that seven war steamers were off Charleston harbor, and of the official information to Gov. Pickens of the intended reinforcement of "Fort Sumter." --Many of our Union men, I have reason to believe, were converted then to the ranks of the Secessionists. The secession feeling, I have some ground of believing, is gaining strong hold upon our citizens; and now, since the war rumors that have reached us, many are for immediate secession. A petition to this effect was lately sent to our representative in the Convention, signed by a number of our most prominent citizens. Our city press teem with rumors of this kind, and are anxiously perused by our people. A great deal of excitement is expressed to hear the latest news from Charleston, and our papers will
onable objection to compliance with this just and humane request. But he refused this proposition also, and thereby compelled the return-blow for the first act of hostility, which he himself committed in spiking the guns of Fort Moultrie, and seizing Fort Sumter, and which has been withheld for three months and a half, in order to exhaust every possible means for a peaceful solution of the difficulty. Nor was it until the appearance of an immense fleet and army in the neighborhood of Charleston harbor, intended to slaughter and destroy their people, and to clothe the whole Southern clime in sackcloth and ashes, that the citizen soldiers of the South have made at last when no other resource was left them, a solemn appeal to the God of Battles. In that appeal they will be sustained by the whole civilized world. May the God of Battles fire the hearts, nerve the arms, and give victory to the banners of those patriots struggling for their firesides and their altars ! The time of fo

The war has commenced. Yesterday morning, at 4½ o'clock, the batteries of the Confederate troops in Charleston harbor opened fire on Fort Sumter. Ex-President Tyler yesterday afternoon received by telegraph from John Tyler, Jr., at Montgomery, Ala., the following copy of the official correspondence which took place before the bombardment commenced: [no. 1.]Gen. Beauregard's Dispatch to the Secretary of War. Charleston April 8, 1861. To L. P. Walker Dear Sir --An authorized messenger from Lincoln has just informed Gov. Pickens and myself that provisions will be sent to Fort Sumter, "peaceably if they can,
ve affirmatively the long-disputed problem "can Fort Sumter be reinforced?"Each of the small steamers, Crusader, Wyandotte, Mohawk and Water-Witch, are to be lined on the sides with bags of damp sand, the launches shall be temporarily roofed, covered and lined outside with the same material, men will embark both in the gun-boats and launches; more in the latter — they being smaller targets — than in the former. Hawsers will connect the boats with the steamers, which will tow them into Charleston harbor in spite of all Morris Island and the other batteries can do to prevent them. In fact, so enthusiastic are the advocates of this plan, as to the feasibility of carrying it out, that one of them lately remarked to us that Moultrie might play away at the intruders without any more serious result arising from her amusement than the education of Southern artillerists." The New York Express says: As near as can be estimated, about two thousand men were sent from the forts of N.
By Telegraph. Charleston April 12 --The bombardment of Fort Sumter by the Confederate troops in Charleston harbor commenced this morning at 4 o'clock, and the batteries are now firing on the fortress. [second Dispatch.] Charleston,April 12.--The ball is opened, and war is inaugurated. The batteries on Sullivan's Island, Morris' Island, and other points, opened on Fort Sumter at 4½ o'clock this morning. Fort Sumter has returned the fire, and a brisk cannonading has been kept up. No information has been received from seaward yet. The militia are under arms, and the whole of our population is on the streets. Every available space viewing the harbor is filled with anxious spectators. [third Dispatch.] Charleston,April 12. P. M.--The firing has continued all day without intermission. Two of Fort Sumter's guns have been silenced, and it is reported a breach has been made in the Southern wall. The answer to Beauregard's demand on Maj. And
