ld be adopted upon which the whole South would be willing to stand. He then went on to reply to the argument of the gentleman from Augusta in regard to protection and free trade. The advantages of a separation from the Government of the United States were next pointed out. Under the system of legislation that prevailed, it would be impossible for Virginia to become what the God of Nature designed she should become. In the event of a resumption of her sovereign powers, and a union with thlative to the action of the Committee being final upon the subject before it, he intimated his purpose to make an appeal to the Convention at the proper time. Mr. Hall, or Wetzel, made some remarks touching upon the Constitution of the Confederate States, which he regarded as the best the world ever saw. He hoped it would be presented to the North as Virginia's ultimatum. The report of the Peace Conference, proposed by the gentleman from Harrison, he regarded as a cheat and a fraud. M

,033 bales cotton, 46 tierces rice, and 30 packages merchandize, and 7 passengers. Among the passengers were three gentlemen of leisure, who went from here in her for the express purpose of "seeing with their own eyes and hearing with their own ears" the great commotion of the fire-eaters. They state that when they went to a hotel they booked their names "of Boston," and upon every occasion when they were introduced to distinguished citizens, they invariably spoke of themselves as Bostonians, yet their reception was all that they could have desired. They were not dogged as they had reason to apprehend from the tenor of the news received here, nor did any one ask them impertinent questions. There was plenty of soldiering, marching and countermarching, but they saw no rowdyism. Politicians spoke freely to them about the affairs of the country, but expressed no regret about secession; on the contrary, the people seemed determined to have nothing more to do with the United States.
Forts Sumter and Pickens. --A telegram in the New York Herald from Washington, Saturday, states that the official order for the evacuation of Fort Sumter was issued on Friday, and a special messenger was immediately dispatched with it to Major Anderson. The fort is to be evacuated on the arrival in Charleston harbor of a United States vessel to receive them. Dispatches received by the Government from Fort Pickens represent that the garrison is short of provisions, and can hold out but a short time longer. The squadron off, Pensacola are unable to reinforce the fort or land supplies. The Administration will doubtless, before the lapse of many days, be obliged also to abandon that stronghold to the secessionists.
The broad Bars of the Confederacy. --We protest against the words "stripes," as applied to the broad bars of the flag of our Confederacy. The word is quite appropriate as applied to the Yankee ensign or a barber's pole; but it does not correctly describe the red and white divisions of the flag of the Confederate States. The word is bars --we have removed from under the stripes. As we speak of the flag, we may mention that the Committee on Flags caused the Secretary of Congress to order one from Mobile, for the Capitol, which will probably arrive to-day. It is 28 feet long, by 18 in width; and, as the Congress has adjourned till May, will probably be turned over temporarily to the War Department.--Montgomery Mail.
The Confederate States' loan. --The Atlanta Confederacy learns that a distinguished politician of the North went on to Montgomery last week with offers for the whole of the fifteen million loan at par, the bid being made by English capitalists. Mr. Memminger declined the negotiation, preferring to give domestic capitalists the refusal of the bids. The Confederacy says that a Georgia house has offered to take five millions of the loan.
A Crack Regiment. --The President of the Confederate States has accepted and drafted into the regular army the Zouave Regiment of New Orleans, numbering 630 men, commanded by Col. Coppen, formerly of the French army. A large majority of the regiment have seen real service in Europe — all are French, and the orders are to be given in the French language.
Capital coming South. --A few days ago four wealthy planters from Maryland, one owning a hundred slaves, passed through this place, on their way to Alabama, to purchase plantations with the intention of settling in the Confederate States.--Rome (Ga.) Southerner.
ession of the Southern States would produce only temporary inconvenience to our people — no fundamental change could occur without this result, we had all the elements of unbounded prosperity — a chance of getting their best men, besides more territory.--A contrast favorable to Southern advantages was presented. A "Border Confederacy" was deprecated. There was no conflict of interest between the Border and Cotton States. The slave trade had been prohibited by the Constitution of the Confederate States. The Southern States could harmonize together.--The Creator had made the negro inferior to the white man — he had made a place and created him to fill it. At the South, white men were on an equality with each other; not so at the North. When an inferior race comes in contact with a superior race, there are only three solutions of the problem of government: amalgamation, extermination, or subordination — all of which had found an illustration in this continent.

In Manchester the proposed increase of duties on cotton goods in the United States is causing great attention-- in Newcastle it is considered that it will be impossible to do business with the United States on the terms set out in the Tariff, while the business with the Southern States is described as satisfactory. In Sh the comfort of our own countrymen and the warning of the Government of the United States, that in attempting to exclude at one blow twenty millions of exports from seaboard, but they cannot prevent English manufactures from permeating the United States from one end to the other. A glance at the map is sufficient to show this.ed across the long and imperceptible frontier which separates them from the United States.-- Nay, it is quite possible that the great city of New York may prefer to The Weser-Zeitung, of Bremen, says: "The political crisis in the United States has gradually reached a point, after which all constitutional discussions a
at the present time: Dispatch To the Editors of the Dispatch: --Enclosed I send you the copy of a communication received this morning from the Secretary of War, in relation to the "Bellona guns." In as much as the exciting scenes in our Legislature. as well as the street gossip, concerning them, have engaged a considerable share of public attention, this letter may possess some interest for your readers. A desire to prevent a conflict between the citizens of Richmond and the United States authorities, in removing them to Fort Monroe, prompted me to request the Secretary of War to countermand any orders he might have issued for their removal. J. M.McCue. Yours, respectfully, War Department, March 28, 1861 Dear Sir --I have had the honor to receive your favor of the 26th inst., for which please accept the thanks of the Department.
