f Secession, and called upon the people to vote for it to a man. Mr. Bekem and Dr. Preston had been Union men as long as they could remain so honorably, but after Lincoln issued his war proclamation, they were for secession. Judge Fulton, of the Wytheville District, arrived here to hold a special term for Judge Fulkerson, for ed us in the face; but be not afraid, success would crown our efforts for liberty and our homes. He asked the people of Washington county if they would submit to Lincoln? He wanted a reply. There was a general response, "never! never! never!" That reply he said, did him good to hear. He said if there was one man in the house who intended to vote for remaining under Lincoln's Government, he wanted to see him. Not one such spoke. The Judge was glad to find none here. Mr. Sheffey spoke at length upon the present crisis. He called upon the people to vote for the Ordinance of Secession, and spoke in the highest terms of President Davis, (whom, he said

ripped of their uniforms, which were their private property, and very roughly treated. To save themselves from such outrage, all except twenty-five, among whom were several officers, consented to take the oath. Those who refused were violently driven from the camp, almost naked — not a cent paid them for their services, and having spent all the money they had in staving off starvation they were compelled to beg bread and clothing, and started on foot for this city on their way home, and they promise that no more of their German friends shall. like them, be enlisted in support of Lincoln through such deception. One of those who called upon us appeared to be quite an intelligent, respectable man, a physician, and assured us that great dissatisfaction exists amongst all the troops in Washington, and that it requires the greatest watchfulness to prevent their desertion in large bodies, while an order for them to leave Washington to march South would probably lead to an open mutiny.
a, have invented a cannon which is loaded at the breech, and can be fired ten times in a minute. Professor Grant is about to leave New York for Fortress Monroe, for the purpose of placing one of his largest calcium lights upon that work. The reflector of the lamp will have a diameter of three feet. In London there were 1,056 fires during the year 1860 While 232 of these are known to have been caused by the use of candles, only 98 were attributed to gas. An exchange says that Lincoln offers 28,000 for Matthew Maury's head. We are not surprised. Maury's head is worth all the heads in the Northern United States. The steam-tug W. H. Webb, which was refused a clearance from Havana until she raised the English flag, arrived safely at New Orleans on the 14th. A perfect panic exists at the West. Only ten illinois Banks are now received at all, and as high as 30 per cent, has been paid upon exchange to New York. Massachusetts claims to have given $12,630,000 t

Union men of Virginia. We trust that the result of this election will dispel all doubts from the minds of Northern skeptics and cavillers as to the Union sentiment of Virginia. The truth is, that from the moment of Lincoln's Proclamation there has been but one party in Virginia, and that is the party of Southern Independence and Nationality. We are inclined to doubt whether the Northern journals which denied this fact, ever had any doubt about it; but if they had, the election of yesterday must have ended their doubts forever. Having from the beginning advocated the secession of Virginia, we are free to say that this party, to which we were for a time opposed, and which, previous to Lincoln's Proclamation, had a large majority in the Virginia Convention, commands our unbounded admiration for the prompt, united and intrepid front with which they unfurled the banner of Independence the first moment that the real purposes of the military despotism at Washington were avowed.

e heads this paragraph. An open enemy, all know how to treat; but, in all ages and among all nations, a Traitor has received not only the profound execration of those whom he betrayed, but the unmingled contempt of those who profited by his treason. As Governor of Maryland, Hicks had the power to paralyze that generous and gallant State, and this power he has exercised — handing over a once free and sovereign Commonwealth, bound hand and foot, to an armed military despotism. The names of Lincoln, Seward & Co. are black and detestable enough in all conscience, but blacker and more execrable will Hicks and Winter Davis go down to posterity. Here after, let them expect to be linked in the eternal remembrance of every Southern man, and every honorable and upright man in both North and South, with Benedict Arnold, the only character of the first American Revolution who approaches them in meanness and treachery — though he, at least, had the redeeming quality of courage, to which neithe

They go to Sewell's Point, where the Chevalier Colquitt commands, and which seems to be now the most prominent and interesting object in the estimation of Pendergrast and his noble conferrers. How is it Pender has had Stringham placed over him? Was it for his brave and gallant bearing at the Navy-Yard with his coadjutors, the Pawnees? Or is it that the demoralized Lincoln horde distrust the Kentuckian? Does Pendergrast imagine a Southern man will be trusted? Has not Pendergrast made a mistake in exposing what he deemed the stronger cause? That sacra fames auri has been the damnation of many, especially when coupled with that other thirst, the thirst for power and position. I now close, and give you the vote here at 10½ A. M.

Raising a flag at Washington. There was a great time at Washington last Wednesday, on the occasion of raising a Federal flag over the General Post-Office building. Lincoln and his Cabinet took a prominent part in the performance, and the following account was telegraphed to the Northern newspapers: The President having advanced to the front of the platform, was enthusiastically greeted from the throng below, and said: He was very happy, on all occasions, to be the humble instrument of forwarding the very worthy objects which had been expressed. He, therefore, took pleasure in performing the part assigned him. Supposing that extended remarks were not expected from him, he proceeded at once to act his part. He then hoisted the flag by a hand-over-hand movement, amid deafening cheers, accompanied by the waving of hats, and of handkerchiefs by the ladies, the band playing meantime, the "Star-Spangled Banner."--The flag having been attached to the staff, three cheer

goes to be intercepted even in the Eastern seas, and the treasures of California are to be met with afloat. To protect this commerce will require no small portion of the available United States Navy; and it is therefore not quite certain that Mr. Lincoln can respond to the reiterated demands of the merchants of New York to blockade all the ports of the South. Looking at these matters in a strictly English point of view, our interest is first, if possible, that this melancholy rupture shoured pirates, and the South would be at the mercy of the North. That proposal having, however, been rejected, the belligerent parties hold their ancient rights, and the commissions of Mr. President Davis are as good as those of Mr. President Lincoln. As to the resolution of the New York merchants to treat the privateers of the unrecognized South as pirates, it cannot be maintained. Every jurist must hold that, so long as Mr. President! Davis is President of a Confederacy of Sovereign St

or two years. The Baker family, of Winchester, Va., have offered to give $600 each to a volunteer company of sixty men. Brigadier-General Joseph E. Johnston has gone to take command of the Confederate forces at Harper's Ferry. Mrs. A. Lincoln returned to Washington from her "shopping" expedition, on Wednesday. Wm. A. Lenoir, of Caldwell county, N. C., committed suicide by shooting himself in the head on the 15th inst. Theodore Heyl, a retired and wealthy merchant in Phieged spy named Beecher was arrested in Washington on Tuesday. Ex-President Buchanan is reported to be confined to his room by illness. J. W. Pipes, of Wilkes county, N. C., was bitten by a large rattlesnake on the 4th inst. Arrests of persons, and petty outrages upon property, are numerous in Washington. The story that A. Lincoln made an excursion into Virginia the other day is untrue. A guard of 300 Zouaves is stationed near the Alexandria Ferry, on the Maryland side.
