d, in self-defence, to attempt the reduction of that fort which so long has menaced their homes and firesides, and which Lincoln had formally notified them he was about to supply with provisions,--"peaceably if he can, forcibly if he must,"--a notify all military authorities as well as by common sense, and the first act of war in that irrepressible conflict which Abraham Lincoln has now fully inaugurated. It was only when this first act of hostilities had been perpetrated that the volunteers g movement, the Southern Commissioners have been cavalierly dismissed from Washington, and a formal notification sent by Lincoln to Gov. Pickens that he was about to provision Fort Sumter, peaceably, if he could; forcibly, if he must. Even then intimating that he might be compelled by starvation to evacuate in a few days, whereas it was that very necessity which Lincoln's fleet and army had been sent to prevent, a fact of which Major Anderson may have been ignorant, but which was none the

sion Meeting, Secession Flag, Secession Speeches, Secession Ladies, and Secession Enthusiasm — Appointments to Office by Lincoln, &c., &c. Hampton, Va., April 8th, 1861. The Administration has finally defined its policy; not publicly, b constituents have found theirs in other instances; but they will correct theirs at the polls. He said, in Petersburg, "Lincoln is for peace." What does he think now? Probably the blockading of ports, collecting of revenue, and reinforcing Southerervedly popular Postmaster, Mr. G. A. Cary, has been removed. Maj. J. B. Cary resigned the office he held, as Surveyor, Lincoln promptly filled it. It is reported other appointments have been made, but the report has yet to be confirmed. The time may soon come when certain representatives will have to give a strict account of their affiliation with Lincoln, Seward, Blair & Co. Would it not be better, infinitely better, to have representatives who have less sympathy with a Black Republica

burg, April 11, 1861. After a day of the most intense excitement, arising from rumored dispatches said to have been received by a distinguished citizen of Richmond, a damper, in the form of a telegram direct from Charleston to a prominent citizen of this city, stating that there was no excitement, and no anticipation of an immediate fight, effectually cooled down the heated passions of our citizens to a very low temperature. Whatever may be the feeling towards the fleet sent South by Lincoln, elsewhere, there exists but one sentiment with regard to it here, and that is, that it may be sunk to the bottom of the ocean, and not a vestige of it remain to tell of its former existence. There is an intense desire to terminate the suspense now existing throughout the land, and which has well night become intolerable. War, with all its entailments — blood, tears and gloom, would be a relief to the public mind, now almost worn out by the present state of uncertainty and indecision.
"Major Anderson has also performed a large amount of the staff duty incident to the service a few years since, and before it was made distinct from duty in the line. He acted as Assistant Inspector of the Illinois Volunteers, serving with Abraham Lincoln in the Black Hawk War of 1832. He was Assistant Instructor and Instructor of Artillery at the Military Academy, in the years 1835 '6 and' 7, and was aide-de-camp to Major-General Scott in 1838. "During the Mexican War, the Major endure fight, and that right soon, most people have come to regard it as a fixed fact, and we may add that it is regarded as equally certain that our brave boys at the batteries will not unbe seem their ancestry, and that the hireling invaders sent by Lincoln will have cause to rue the day they set foot upon the soil of South Carolina. About three o'clock our Reporter, in the suggestive company of cannons, balls, shells, and every description of munitions of war, besides a very large amount of p
Border States has lost the Union. The laggardness of Virginia has put an end to the peace of the country. Her inaction is imputed to timidity; and fanaticism gloats upon a cowardly adversary. It has grown valiant and clamorous. It has forced Lincoln's Administration into war measures. It demands blood. As the battle stands, it is nineteen States against seven; it is eighteen millions of citizens against three millions. This is the sort of odds that fanaticism delights in. This heavy oddsr the seven States who have seceded. The Border States are delegated to a position of craven neutrality, as too timid to take sides in the early stages of the combat. Assured of their neutrality, the fanatical counsels of the North have forced Lincoln into war; and, until repulsed and beaten, it means to carry on the war with the high hand. Virginia may still delay, still put up her hands for peace; but it will be at the risk of being cloven down with the battle-axe of the invader while
y" which would restores confidence and credit, thaw out the frozen channels of business, and enable them once more to earn bread for themselves and families. Hope deferred, however, is making the heart sick. The expectations of relief from the Lincoln Administration have not been realized. The prospects of the great manufacturing interest with which they are connected, are more unpromising than ever. Hence they are now beginning to inquire, how long is this state of things to last? and to romising than ever. Hence they are now beginning to inquire, how long is this state of things to last? and to manifest an unmistakable disposition, if Republicanism is resolved that the rupture of the Union, resulting from its sectional organization, is to be permanent, the Broad Seal State will cut loose from that "ism" as from a pestilence. If such be the melancholy position of these people now, what will it be if Lincoln involves the country in war and close the door, to all employment?

The United States Marshalship. --The President has directed Judge Halyburton, of the District Court, to administer the oath of office to Thos. H. Fisher, of Fairfax county, as the successor of Col. John F. Wiley, a worthy and estimable gentleman, and a veteran of the war of 1812, who has been performing the duties of the office in question for several years with great acceptability to the people. Lincoln's appointee, Fisher, has not, however, as yet presented himself before the Judge to take the oath of office.
that Messrs. Nelson and Maynard, two patriotic representatives in Congress from Tennessee, were officially assured by Mr. Lincoln that he was opposed to coercive measures, that he was in favor of conciliating the South, and of suspending the collecwith which newly invented code of etiquette, we shall refrain from asserting that the official assurances of peace which Lincoln, Seward & Co., gave to Nelson, Maynard, and everybody else, were downright falsehoods, deliberately intended to throw thn't help thinking that, outside of China, it would be impossible to find as unscrupulous dissimulators and falsifiers as Lincoln and his Cabinet. Except that association of robbers and murderers, the Thugs of India, who conceal themselves in all soiation of robbers and murderers, the Thugs of India, who conceal themselves in all sorts of disguises, and practice murder as a religious principle, the world has no counterpart to the combined hypocrisy and blood-thirstiness of Lincoln's Cabinet.
