l be made to appear that the said person has thus continued within the Commonwealth, contrary to the tenor of this act, he or she shall be whipped, not exceeding ten stripes, and ordered to depart, and if he shall not so depart, the same process shall be had and inflicted, and so toties quoties. In March, 1788, this was one of the perpetual laws of the Commonwealth. It passed out of existence (subsilentio), in the general repealing section of an act of March 29, 1834. When in his reply to Hayne, Webster said: The past at least is secure; this was part of that past still under the lock and key of statute. Among the kindly affectioned slaves of my first recollections, remmebered by me with a kind affection, I am satisfied there was not one who wouid have sought, or could have found solace, in the hospitable hand extended from 1788 to 1834. They who bestowed this liberty of the lash became our angry judge. Liberty to be whipped at each recurring sessions of the peace; and so toties

isfactory guarantee of her political and social safety. She takes the secession step at this time in obedience to what she considers her vita interest. Two nights ago, Fort Pickens, Fla., was in immediate danger of assault; but since, a dispatch, signed by numerous secessionists in Congress, has been sent thither, their friends urging them by all means to avoid a collision with the Federal forces. There seems to be no danger, therefore, of an immediate conflict in that quarter. Col. Hayne, of S. C., will remain in Washington ten days or two weeks longer. His visit has been productive of great good in the interest of peace. It is not apprehended that any attack will at present be made on Fort Sumter. The Alabama members of Congress await instructions from their State. Those from Georgia will remain until they receive an official copy of the Ordinance of Secession. Active measures are in progress to have the course of Virginia, in sending Commissioners to Washing
rom Mobile and Mississippi, making in all, at present, stationed in that immediate vicinity, one thousand men; there are now en route near two hundred more from Auburn, Tuskegee and Greenville, who will probably arrive at the quarters to-night. Reinforcements, to the amount of 500 men, are also hourly expected from New Orleans. Washington Rumors. Quite a number of leading secessionists in States other than South Carolina met night before last, and; after consultation, notified Colonel Hayne that he must, in his written communication to the President, take a moderate ground. They agreed in opinion that an insolent demand for the immediate surrender of Fort Sumter could not meet their approval, and that if Maj. Anderson remained there provisions must be furnished him, and his letters must not be subjected to espionage. In the opinion of one of these gentlemen, this remonstrance will have its effect. Certain it is, that the authorities of Charleston were notified to sup

tainly is not a tithe of such as these even, as there are at the North those who will side with the South in the event of collision. See the meeting, a few nights ago, in New York, of the working men. Nothing yet has been made public from Col. Hayne. Our troops are vigorously preparing the batteries, and making ready for the worst. Well informed gentlemen tell me that there is an understanding between our Government and that the United States, and between our Government and Maj. Andethe different points to work on the breastworks. Yesterday a company of them went over to Morris Island, with their masters, who are volunteers from one of the upper districts, each white man having his negro man, and all armed. Master and servant fight side by side. By Monday I shall be able to give you. I think, the ultimatum of Col. Hayne, and perhaps some startling tidings. A fire took place here yesterday morning, and, sad to say, a lady perished in the flames. Virginius.
Book tells us, "if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink" We are doing this. We are sending our prisoners fresh beef and vegetables, and, reports say, a little "Heidseick," too. But, for mercy's sake, don't let the abolitionists know this. Maj. Anderson, as you have heard, married a Georgia lady and has plantations there, and about two hundred negroes. Now that Georgia is out, Maj. Anderson may come out, too. If he don't, he may be forced out. Nothing from Col. Hayne has yet been made public. It may be that he does not press upon the President his ultimatum, for very good reasons; but, as I before stated, things will not remain as at present long. A gentleman has just informed me that all our batteries at the different points are now very near completion. They have now "Columbiad" and mortars plenty, with abundance of shell. Fort Sumter happens to be like Achilles, vulnerable in the heel. It is in the best of Sumter that we intend to direct ou

Correspondence of the Richmond Dispatch.the Commissioner to Washington — CaptainDoubleday — Clerical,&c. Charleston, Jan. 22d, 1861. We still remain in a state of "masterly inactivity," to the great annoyance of our troops. On yesterday, it is said that Col. Hayne was to have offered to the Government at Washington his "ultimatum," but up to the present writing we have heard nothing from him. We expect to hear nothing but a rejection of all overtures for peace made by our Commissioner. Verily, those men at the North seem to have lost their senses. The idea of forcing even little Carolina back into society with them — society that has stunk in our nostrils for twenty years&is the height of impudence. This Cayting Dobleday, of Fort Sumter, I learn from a reliable gentleman, to-day, has dealings with Spirits. He believes in Spirits and Spiritualism, and therefore ought to be excused for that silly letter to his dear friend down East. I learn, also, to-day, that<
ranches of the Legislature. The Legislature was in Executive session to-day on the correspondence of Gov. Pickens, Col. Hayne, (the South Carolina Commissioner to Washington,) and the Federal authorities. It appears that the ultimatum of South Carolina was the surrender of Fort Sumter, that Carolina promised to pay for the forts, and that Hayne, in deference to the wishes of Southern Congressmen, with held his propositions. Gov. Pickens now tells Col. Hayne to make a final demand forCol. Hayne to make a final demand for the forts, and repudiates the position of the President when he says he "has no power to give them up, but must leave it to Congress." Gov. Pickens further tells Hayne to wait a reasonable time for an answer to his final demand, and then, if refusedHayne to wait a reasonable time for an answer to his final demand, and then, if refused, Fort Sumter must be taken. The Legislature endorsed the Governor's action. The commission of Hon. John L. Preston, Private Envoy from South Carolina to Virginia, was to-day sent on to him at Richmond.
The Brooklyn's destination. A dispatch from Washington says: Colonel Hayne received a telegraphic dispatch last evening from Governor Pickens.-- Everything was quiet and peaceful. They had heard of the departure of the steamer Brooklyn for the South with United States troops, which caused considerable excitement. The authorities accordingly telegraphed to ex-President Tyler to ascertain the facts, and whether any reinforcements had been sent by Government to Fort Sumter. Ex-President Tyler addressed a note to the President asking him whether reinforcements had been sent to Fort Sumter. The President in his reply said he was not aware that any reinforcements had been sent there. He did not give the ex-President, however, any information respecting the movements of the Brooklyn. The destination of the Brooklyn is supposed to be Fort Pickens.
The Revenue cutter laid up at New Orleans. New Orleans, Jan. 29. --Secretary Dix has directed the Collector at New Orleans to have no more money expended on the revenue cutter Washington, now hauled up for repairs, until he can have the assurance that she will not be seized, as soon as she is refitted, by the secessionists. Col.Hayne, of S. C., says he has made a demand on the Federal authorities for the surrender of Fort Sumter.
