From Charleston.[Special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Charleston, Feb. 22, 1861. Our people have not forgotten the birthday of Virginia's great and glorious son, and the Father of his Country. The day was ushered in by booming of cannon, and it is to be a gala day here, favored as we are with beautiful spring like weather. No Carolina will never forget the anniversary of the birth of Washington, however she may despise the oppressions of his degenerate sons. The report of the new Cabinet at Montgomery, which I gave you yesterday, is regarded here as official. Whether or not the gentlemen selected will take office, is not yet known. Several of the Cabinet are not widely known, but all of them are regarded as able men and of unimpeached character. President Davis will certainly be here on Tuesday next, when a grand reception awaits him. It would be a pleasant trip (only 26 hours) for some of your gentlemen of leisure to visit the ancient and now renowned city

rleston Courier has the following relative to the stoppage of supplies to Fort Sumter: The orders which some dispatches and accounts have been anticipating for several days, have now been issued for the suspension of all supplies between Fort Sumter and the city.-- This step is not taken too soon, but, we believe, of the use and improvement we have made by the delay, we cannot say, with some, that it was deferred too long. There is reason for believing that the reports of orders from Washington for evacuation have only been designed to deceive and beguile. Fortunately, they have failed in that, so far as vigilance and preparations on the part of the State have been concerned. The complication and difficulty growing out of the occupation of Fort Sumter, were caused by an act of Major Anderson, on his own responsibility, and without specific orders.
