nt just adopted. In reply to a question asked by Mr. Summers, Mr. Wise declared that he was ready for secession the moment any one of the forts was reinforced; and not only that, but he was ready now to leave his seat and march to the aid to South Carolina, a dispatch having been just revealed that the battle had commenced. (This declaration created a visible sensation throughout the hall, and a disposition to applaud was quite manifest.) Mr. Summers said he was not prepared to make a repattempt to starve out Maj. Anderson, and said that if the attempt of the Federal Government to supply him with provisions was to be a cause of war, he called upon the whole world to look down with an eye of condemnation upon the proceeding of South Carolina, and claimed that it was the duty of Virginia to help keep Maj. Anderson alive until pending difficulties are adjusted. Mr. Rives' amendment was then voted down — ayes 35, noes 60. Mr. Wisesaid he had offered his own amendment for t
The armament in Charleston harbor. The Secretary of War, of South Carolina, made a report to the Convention, on Monday giving a description of the armament of Charleston harbor, which is interesting at this exciting hour: At Fort Moultrie, on Sullivan's Island, the injured guns have been replaced, and all, amounting to thirty-eight in number of various calibres, have been protected by well constructed merlons, the magazine has been made bomb-proof, and other works have been erected for the security of the garrison. To the East of Fort Moultrie, on the same island, the entrance to Maffit's channel has been defended by a battery of one 8-inch howitzer, two 32pounders and two 24-pounders. Between that battery and Fort Moultrie, there is a mixed battery of three 10-inch mortars and two 32pounders. West of Fort Moultrie, at about two hundred yards distance from the fort, a battery of two 10-inch mortars has been erected; and an enfilade battery of two 32 and 24pounders has bee

gentlemen of both the old dead parties, unanimously reported resolutions, which were unanimously adopted by the meeting, affirming the right and duty of the State to dissolve the unholy alliance which now binds her to a Northern Abolition Union, and declaring that, heeding alike "the instincts of self-preservation, the suggestions of interest, and the demands of honor," she should seek shelter beneath the Œgis of her own sovereignty, and unite her destiny with that heroic band led on by South Carolina, the Thermopylae of Freedom. During the absence of the committee, Baker P. Lee, Jr. Esq., responded to a call in his usual felicitous and eloquent manner; and when it was announced, during the progress of the meeting, that the flight had commenced at Sumter, the enthusiasm was intense and the applause deafening. As soon as the meeting adjourned, the crowd proceeded to make preparations for the erection of a secession pole and flag, the latter of which was made by the fair fingers of
Hail storm. --On last Tuesday evening Chester; S. C., was visited with a severe hail storm, accompanied with heavy rain. Hail fell as large as partridge eggs, and some of the pieces measured over four inches in circumference.
it will be as easy to cover the ocean with fast-sailing steamers as it was in 1812 to employ sailing vessels. It cannot be doubted that the "Confederate Republic" will employ this legitimate weapon of self-defence and annoyance. We trust the Charleston Mercury's prediction will be fulfilled, when it says that-- "Every sea will swarm with the privateers of the Confederate States. The most active sea-hunt will take place that the world has ever witnessed. Already, the Governor of South Carolina has had offers and applications for letters of marque and reprisal from Northern ports. The Spanish gallons, which of old tempted the sea adventurer, were nothing to the rich prizes which the California steamers and European packets will afford.--New York will blockade New York. We have but to legalize and let loose their own sea robbers and adventurers upon their commerce, to accomplish its speedy annihilation. New York and Boston now furnish the men, capital, and ships, which now ca
Gone South. --Hon. Roger A. Pryor, of Petersburg, Va., left that city Tuesday evening for Charleston, to offer his services to Gov. Pickens, of South Carolina. He was accompanied by Dr. R. E. Robinson, W. R. Mallory, A. B. Jordan, and Jas. F. Nash. The two last-named gentlemen have commissions in the Confederate Army.
s liberal provisions. It was indeed most fortunate for the country that President Davis so wisely called to his Cabinet, in the important capacity of Secretary of the Treasury Department, of a new Government, the Hon. C. G. Momminger, of South Carolina. Well known to the people of Virginia, and especially of Richmond, for the ability and eloquence he displayed as the Commissioner of South Carolina to the Virginia Legislature, he stands now in the very front rank of his compeers for fame inSouth Carolina to the Virginia Legislature, he stands now in the very front rank of his compeers for fame in the new Government. A man of unquestioned ability, of high intelligence and moral character, great application and industry, and possessed of a practical business capacity that is not surpassed by any in the South, for him may be confidently predicted a solid and brilliant reputation as Secretary of the Confederate States Treasury. Should the new and intricate relations surrounding the recently organized Government involve him in official conflict. whoever encounters him thus will find a gia
