ome such ties in the States of the South. It would be as brutal, in my opinion, to send men to butcher our own brothers of the Southern States, as it would be to massacre them in the Northern States. We are told, however, that it is our duty to, and we must enforce the laws. But why — and what laws are to be enforced? There were laws that were to be enforced in the time of the American Revolution, and the British Parliament and Lord North sent armies here to enforce them. But what did Washington say in regard to the enforcement of those laws? That man-- honored at home and abroad more than any other man on earth ever was honored — did he go for enforcing the laws? No, he went to resist laws that were oppressive against a free people, and against the injustice of which they rebelled. Did Lord Chatham go for enforcing the laws? No, he gloried in defence of the liberties of America. He made that memorable declaration in the British Parliament--"If I were an American citizen, ins
Patriotic Munificence. --The amount of collections for the Washington Monument, made at the polls during the late Presidential election in California, reaches the large figure of $10,962.01, which Mr. L.

Coercion. Mr. Seward, the Prime Minister of the approaching Administration has plainly indicated that "Coercion" is the settled policy of that Administration. He declared in his speech in the Senate, on Thursday, upon introducing the conciliatory petition of the people of New York, that he had said to the committee who brought the memorial to Washington: "Go home, and speak for the Union, vote for the Union, contribute your money to preserve the Union, and when all other expedients fail, fight for the Union." Exactly! The Premier has at last uttered the sentiment which it has been all along suspected was that cherished in his heart. His oracular language heretofore has been susceptible of two interpretations. Like Janus, he has worn two faces, one of which he has muffed up in his smooth discourses. After he had blundered so far from his adroit policy as to make this declaration in the Senate, upon being interrogated by Mr. Mason, he denied that he meant "Coercion,

From Charleston.[special correspondence of the Dispatch.] Charleston, Jan. 31, 1861. These are mercurial times. Yesterday afternoon the dispatches from Washington put us all agog, and the bulletin boards presented the usual excited jam as to what was the news. This morning the mercury has receded from "blood heat" to "temperate, " and things wag on as usual. In the meantime active preparations are going on in every department of the Government, and the different batteries are being doubly manned, and instruments of death put in place. Much is being said in the Virginia papers as to the response given by Carolina to Virginia. Some regard the answer as disrespectful.--Nothing is farther from the facts. None but one prejudiced could give it such an interpretation. Carolina has taken her stand, and so have all the Cotton States, and their position they mean to maintain and having so determined, why send Commissioners to a "Peace Congress," as it is called, to n
