out the nation. They are of the utmost importance. They surpass in interest the Virginia Convention, as the position and composition of that body have been sometime ascertained, and have disappointed alike the true friends of the South and the Lincoln Abolitionists at the North. If no event forces that body into an act of boldness and independence, it will assuredly place Virginia in an intermediate condition of passivity and contempt. The organs of Lincoln have already informed its leadersLincoln have already informed its leaders that they were not up to the mark of Northern expectations, and that their plan of adjustment would be indignantly rejected by the North; that, notwithstanding all its gentle and affectionate language towards men ready to cut our throats and deluge our country with the blood of our people, all its studied a voidance of positive language, and its indefinite meaning as to the time Virginia will "wait" for the answers of the Northern States--notwithstanding all these indications of indecision and
What policy the Government at Washington will inaugurate in regard to the revenue and forts, seems to constitute somewhat of an enigma to the Southern mind. The indications of war and those which signify peace, alternately predominate. Lincoln has accepted an invitation to visit soon the Theatre in Washington, say the papers, and it is to be hoped that the manager will have produced on the occasion Shakespeare's Merchant of Venice, in the same spirit that Hamlet had presented to the ired to separate State action, is as universal as the scorn and detestation with which the Lincoln Administration is regarded. The people of the District treat with contempt the acceptance by Geo. W. Lane of the Federal Judge tendered him by Lincoln. His friends, if he has any, it is said, will, of course, prove a sinecure, (the Hon. Wm. G. Jones holding the same appointment under this Government.) and is only important as showing the animus of the Black Republicans not by any act to recog

M.--The reinforcement of Fort Sumter will be attempted by the U. S. vessels on the flood tide to-day or to-morrow. The floating battery was put in place, at its final destination, yesterday. Every man, capable of bearing arms, is off to the different posts in the harbor, and the stores in the city are closed. Thousands of soldiers are arriving in hourly trains from the interior. No one doubts Lincoln's policy now. We are amply prepared for him, and there is but one feeling prevailing here, "Victory or Death." Gen. Beauregard is in command of all the forces. Maj. Anderson has acted treacherously, and he will have now to take the consequences. Virginias.
ate with the United States troops on board the transports, who are to be landed and attack the works upon Morris' Island, thus endeavoring to relieve the beleaguered fortress by Scott's favorite tactics of "a fire in the rear." The writer, however, is of opinion that the Northern Government will not be able to accomplish its nefarious design. He then refers to the influence of the vote in our Convention of 89 against secession. which, both North and South, is regarded as having nerved Lincoln's arm to the bloody blow that he is now aiming full at the heart of the South: "Had Virginia stood up for her own and our rights, as we had reason to hope she would, 'honest Abe' would never have dared to act as he now proposes. But for that mistaken vote of the 89, our dispute might have had a peaceable solution. Oh, what might not old Virginia have been in this glorious contest, had she only been true to her instincts and past glory!--Her friends will forgive her desertion of her n
the batteries around the harbor will be prevented by Anderson, if he can, which will be an open declaration of war on the part of the Lincoln Government. I telegraphed you this morning to that effect, and stated that Lieut. Talbot, who left here for Washington a week ago, for the purpose, as he stated, of being promoted, is now on his way back with dispatches for Major Anderson. Gen. Beauregard has now determined that he shall not return to the fort, unless he shows to him the order, from Lincoln's Government, that Sumter is to be immediately evacuated. By that time we expect the fleet, now sailed and sailing to be hovering over our shores, when we will give them the reception of warm affection. Some of our people are still of opinion that Anderson will evacuate, but I confess I have no such idea. I have no confidence in Anderson, nor his masters at Washington, and nothing, in my opinion, would rejoice the heart of your Administration, and the heart of Anderson, and the heart of
