Could the people of the South but have foreseen this wonderful unanimity of feeling and patriotic self-devotion on the part of the North, it is safe to assume that the national flag would still have been left floating over Fort Sumter. Thirteen banks of the city of New York contributed nearly half a million of dollars for the defence of the Government. Added to the previous subscription of $250,000 by the Broadway Bank, these contributions amount, thus far, to $715,000, divided as follows:-- Bank of Commerce, by J. A.
