rolina, Florida, Georgia, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Arkansas, Tennessee, Kentucky and Missouri, be and they are hereby invited to meet the people of the State of Alabama, by their delegates in convention, on the 4th day of February next in Montgomery, in the State of Alabama, for the purpose of consultation with each other. as to the most effectual mode of securing concerted, harmonious action in whatever measures may be deemed most desirable for the common peace and security. And be itbe and he is hereby instructed to transmit forthwith a copy of the foregoing preamble, ordinance and resolutions to the Governors of the several States named in the said resolutions. Done by the people of Alabama, in convention assembled, at Montgomery, this 11th day of January, 1861. The preamble, ordinance and resolutions were adopted by Ayes 61, Nays 39. Celebration in Mobile. Yesterday was the wildest day of excitement in the annals of Mobile. The whole people seemed to be at th
am sure he is sustained by the Collector, and believe acts by his advice. What must I do? W. H. Jones, Special Agent. To this dispatch Secretary Dix immediately returned the following answer, before published: Treasury Department, Jan. 29, 1861. W. Hemphill Jones, New Orleans: Tell Lieut. Caldwell to arrest Capt. Breshwood, assume command of the cutter, and obey the order through you. If Capt. Breshwood, after arrest, undertakes to interfere with the command of the cutter, tell Lieut. Caldwell, to consider him as a mutineer, and treat him accordingly. If any one attempts to haul down the American flag, shoot him on the spot. John A. Dix, Secretary of the Treasury. This dispatch must have been intercepted both at Montgomery and New Orleans, and withheld from Mr. Jones, and the treason of Captain Breshwood was consummated by means of a complicity on the part of the telegraph line within the States of Alabama and Louisiana. (See Doc. 31.)--N. Y. Times, February 8.
r our safety and security, it would be attended with much more serious ills than it has been as yet. Thus far we have seen none of those incidents which usually attend revolutions. No such material as such convulsions usually throw up has been seen. Wisdom, prudence, and patriotism have marked every step of our progress thus far. This augurs well for the future, and it is a matter of sincere gratification to me that I am enabled to make the declaration of the men I met in the Congress at Montgomery (I may be pardoned for saying this) an abler, wiser, a more conservative, deliberate, determined, resolute, and patriotic body of men I never met in my life. [Great applause.] Their works speak for them; the Provisional Government speaks for them; the constitution of the permanent Government will be a lasting monument of their worth, merit, and statesmanship. [Applause.] But to return to the question of the future. What is to be the result of this revolution? Will every thing, com
from President Lincoln, just informed Gov. Pickens and myself that provisions will be sent to Fort Sumter peaceably, or otherwise by force. G. T. Beauregard. Montgomery, April 10th. Gen. G. T. Beauregard, Charleston: If you have no doubt of the authorized character of the agent who communicated to you the intention of the Wawer. L. P. Walker, Sec. of War. Charleston, April 10. L. P. Walker, Secretary of War: The demand will be made to-morrow at 12 o'clock. G. T. Beauregard. Montgomery, April 10. Gen. Beauregard, Charleston: Unless there are especial reasons connected with your own condition, it is considered proper that you should make thectfully, Your obedient servant, Robert Anderson, Major U. S. Army, Commanding. To Brigadier-General G. T. Beauregard, commanding Provisional Army, C. S. A. Montgomery, April 11. Gen. Beauregard, Charleston: We do not desire needlessly to bombard Fort Sumter, if Major Anderson will state the time at which, as indicated by h
onade, in which not one man is killed, Major Anderson, an officer of undoubted courage and honor, runs up a white flag, surrenders the fort, and becomes the guest of General Beauregard. Let no man hastily cry traitor! He only obeyed his orders. He made an honorable defence. I-He took care to shed no blood. He gave orders not to sight men, but to silence batteries. Meantime, while the rebels are ignorantly glorifying the victory of five thousand men over eighty, what news comes from Montgomery? The telegraph in the hands of the rebels says: Fort Pickens was reinforced last night. It is understood that Charleston harbor is blockaded. Despatches from Lieut. Slemmer, captured by the rebels, gave Davis the first intimation of his defeat? No wonder the rebel chief was sick, and went to bed! No wonder that his Secretary, Walker, declined to make a speech! And what from Washington? These significant paragraphs: The report that Anderson has surrendered, and is t
Dix.) And this brings me to the point I wish to make. I violate no confidence in making it. It is this :--If South Carolina had tendered war to the late Administration as she has to this — I mean by a hostile and deadly assault — it would have been unanimously accepted. (Prolonged cheering.) I repeat, then, that this Administration has done no more than its duty. Nay, I believe, that self-preservation rendered necessary what it has done. I have no doubt that the Confederate leaders at Montgomery have entertained, and still entertain, the design of marching upon Washington to overthrow the Government, taking its place and presenting itself to the nations of the world as the true representative of the people of the United States. (Cries of Never, never; they can't do it. ) Against this usurpation and fraud, if it shall be attempted, I trust we shall contend with all the strength God has given us. (Cries of We will. ) I am for supporting the Government. I do not ask who administers
title to power. War and tumult must conceal the irregularity of their civil course, and smother discontent and criticism at the same time. Besides, bankruptcy at home can live out its short term of possible existence only by conquest on land and piracy at sea. And, further, only by war, by appeal to popular frenzy, can they hope to delude the Border States to join them. War is the breath of their life. To-day, therefore, the question is, by the voice of the South, Shall Washington or Montgomery own the continent? And the North says, From the Gulf to the Pole, the Stars and Stripes shall atone to four millions of negroes whom we have forgotten for seventy years; and before you break the Union, we will see that justice is done to the slave. (Enthusiastic and long continued cheers.) There is only one thing that those cannon shot in the harbor of Charleston settled, and that is, that there never can be a compromise. (Loud applause.) We Abolitionists have doubted whether this Un
ied if they could hear it as he had. He would not speak of the States that were out, but those who were in. North Carolina was out, and did not know exactly how she got out. The fires that were blazing here he had seen all along, his track from Montgomery to Richmond. At Wilmington, N. C., he had counted on one street twenty flags of the Confederate States. The news from Tennessee was equally cheering — there the mountains were on fire. Some of the States still hesitated, but soon all wouldthe people to rule, &c. He spoke of all the fifteen Southern States as advocating this construction. To violate the principles of the Constitution was to initiate revolution; and the Northern States had done this. The constitution framed at Montgomery discarded the obsolete ideas of the old Constitution, but had preserved its better portion, with some modifications, suggested by the experience of the past; and it had been adopted by the Confederate States, who would stand by it.

ution of the Provisional Government of the Confederate States of America. We, the delegates of the people of Virginia in Convention assembled, solemnly impressed by the perils which surround the Commonwealth, and appealing to the Searcher of hearts for the rectitude of our intentions in assuming the grave responsibility of this act, do by this ordinance, adopt and ratify the Constitution of the Provisional Government of the Confederate States of America, ordained and established at Montgomery, Alabama, on the eighth day of February, eighteen hundred and sixty-one; provided that this ordinance shall cease to have any legal operation or effect if the people of this Commonwealth, upon the vote directed to be taken on the ordinance of secession passed by this Convention, on the seventeenth day of April, eighteen hundred and sixty-one, shall reject the same. A true copy. Jno. L. Eubank, Secretary. Convention between the Commonwealth of Virginia and the Confederate States of Am
of April last the honorable Mr. Walker, Secretary of War of the Confederate States, held the following language at Montgomery, Alabama: No man, he said, could tell where the war this day commenced would end, but he would prophesy that the flaof Lincoln and his bodyguard of Kansas cut-throats from the White House. It makes good the words of Secretary Walker at Montgomery in regard to the Federal Metropolis. It transfers the lines of battle from the Potomac to the Pennsylvania border. , and both must cooperate in the destiny to be achieved. The correspondent of the Charleston Courier wrote from Montgomery, Alabama, under date of the 28th ultimo, as follows: The aspect of Montgomery at this time is any thing but peaceful, all, will have removed to the present Federal Capital.
