Secession movement at the South. appeal from South Carolina--Painting a White Girl for the purpose of Selling her — the Pittsburg excitement--Mr. Seward's propositions, &c. The appeal to the Southern States. The address of the "people of South Carolina" to the slaveholding States, concludes as follows: CitiSouth Carolina" to the slaveholding States, concludes as follows: Citizens of the slaveholding States of the United States, circumstances beyond our control have placed us in the van of the great controversy between the Northern and Southern States. We would have preferred that other States should have assumed the position we now occupy. Independent ourselves, we disclaim any design or desire to ld the counsels of the other Southern States. Providence has cast our lot together, by extending over us an identity of pursuits, interests and institutions. South Carolina desires no destiny separated from yours. To be one of a great slaveholding confederacy, stretching its arms over a territory larger than any power in Europe
thern Cross. It immediately struck me that the Southern Cross would be an appropriate banner for the Southern Confederacy. And last night's Herald brought a picture of it — showing that the idea had already suggested itself to the people of South Carolina. My arrangement of the stars is different. Instead of a cross of single lines of stars, as in the South Carolina flag, I had a cross of double lines — thus: ** **** * **** ** ** As the religion of Christ has been spurSouth Carolina flag, I had a cross of double lines — thus: ** **** * **** ** ** As the religion of Christ has been spurned by the Abolitionists, the adoption of the Cross on the Southern banner is eminently fitting. I have embodied the idea in an article for an other journal. Every Congressman who could get away is gone. No strangers are here during these distracted times. The Pittsburg row, which promised to be the battle of Lexington of the second revolution, has ended in smoke. So you may imagine how dull we are to-day. The few Southern members who remain manifest some anxiety to know the limits<
Fort Moultrie. --Fort Moultrie, at the mouth of Charleston harbor, is named in honor of General William Moultrie, one of the bravest patriots of the American Revolution, who gained a memorial victory at the fortress over the British squadron, June 28th, 1776. Moultrie was a native of South Carolina, and of Scottish descent. He early espoused the cause of American independence, and in March, 1776, was ordered to construct a fort on Sullivan Island, at the mouth of Charleston harbor, and was engaged upon the work when the British fleet appeared off the coast. He was advised to abandon the fortress, as General Charles Lee, his superior officer, declared it was no better than "a slaughter pen." But Moultrie had faith in his own work, and defended the fort with great skill and valor, and drove away the enemy. One British ship was lost, and two others were so riddled as to have almost become wrecks. The loss of the enemy was 222 killed and wounded. The Americans had 11 killed and 2
bills were the order of the day. The bill admitting Arizona was taken up and amended. Mr. Brown moved so to amend the bill as to protect slavery in the Territory. Mr. Doolittle, of Wis. made a speech against it. He denied that the Dred Scott decision carried slavery into the Territories, and said there could be no peace if it was intended to change the Constitution into a pro-slavery instrument. Mr. Benjamin, of La. followed in reply.--In reference to the secession of South Carolina, he said the question of her independence would come before the Senate in a tangible shape on Monday. Mr. Brown said if slaves could not be recognized, the slave States would go out of the Union, for there would be no peace if they remained in it. Mr. Green said he was waiting an opportunity to introduce a bill for the admission of Pikes' Peak into the Union. Adjourned until Monday.

Other schemes are pending. Col. Myers and Capt. Dunnevent, of South Carolina, and Major Wayne, of Georgia, officers U. S. A., have resigned. The South Carolina postmasters are continually sending in their resignations, saying that they are out of the Union. The address proposing a Convention of the border slave South Carolina postmasters are continually sending in their resignations, saying that they are out of the Union. The address proposing a Convention of the border slave States at Baltimore, meets with general approval of the representatives therefrom, and has received numerous signatures. The Senate Committee of Thirteen meets again to-morrow. Crittenden is more hopeful of a good result.
