The following is the declaration of causes which justify the secession of South Carolina from the Federal Union, as reported by the committee to preparople of the Southern States: The State of South Carolina having determined to resume a separatveral sovereign States. On May 23, 1788, South Carolina, by a Convention of her people, assented t belief.

A Rogue of the "New Republic" released. --James Gray, of Charleston, S. C., who was arrested in Baltimore for robbing his employers in the former city of $700 in gold and $1,000 in checks, has been discharged. His counsel had prepared a legal paper, setting forth that as South Carolina had declared herself an independent Republic, and there was no extradition treaty, the present criminal could not be held; but the Court had discharged the prisoner before this "important" legal question could be brought before it.
From Washington. [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Dec. 21, 1860. South Carolina's secession adds little to the outward excitement of the city. The day is brilliant, mild as Spring, and matters go on much as usual. But there is hardly a thinking man who does not feel that the fate of the Union is irrevocably sealed, and a Southern Confederacy inevitable. Reconstructionists and Middle Confederacy men have little to hope from the drift of the Revolution, as will apof his speech, all the Southern Senators warmly congratulated Mr. Pugh, Mr. Douglas said himself that he was moved to tears. Yet he is, or was, until recently, himself a Coercionists. Owing to the adjournment of the House to Monday, the South Carolina members will not leave till then. It is more than probable that they will not go alone. The feeling with these men is not that of exultation. It is too deep for that. Never have I seen men so overmastered by profound emotion as were some
. Conservatives place great confidence in this committee. Meantime, Lincoln's virtual declaration of war against South Carolina has dispelled the hopes of many who went to bed last night in the most sanguine spirits. If it is expected that threats will have any other influence than to confirm South Carolina in her position, and to bring the whole South actively to her aid, the Republicans are grievously in error. There is much despondency here today. The bill authorizing the BaltimorSouth as the Tribune newspaper, which this plan proposes to retain in the new Union. The feeling here is against South Carolina. She is sneered at and reviled by the majority of the people. But many are devoted to her cause, and I have heard fhich the managers, I suppose, deem appropriate to the times. A gentleman just returned from a month's sojourn in South Carolina tells me that never before in all his life has he seen a whole people so imbued with a deep, solemn purpose, as are t
Complimentary dinner. --We understand that a party of gentlemen in this city have extended an invitation to Messrs. Ashmore, McQueen, Bonham and Boyce, members of Congress from South Carolina, who resigned their seats as soon as they heard of the passage of the Secession Ordinance by their State, to accept a dinner in this city on Wednesday next. The letter of invitation was mailed last Saturday night, and will probably be answered this afternoon.
ort, which, being still in the hands of the Government, can be easily occupied and defended by undisciplined troops, whilst the whole disposable regular force and the Navy will be brought to bear upon the forts in Charleston harbor, either to reinforce and strengthen them, if still in the hands of the United States, or to recapture them if taken by the Carolinians. We have no expectation that the U. States will attempt to send troops through Virginia and other Southern States, to attack South Carolina. When such a possibility was suggested in the Nullification era, ocean steam transportation had not been inaugurated. Now, an army, when it is raised, can be conveyed to Charleston in a few days, whereas, to march the same number of troops, with all the munitions of war, through Virginia and North Carolina, would take some time. It is not at all likely that the various railroad companies would extend them the usual facilities of travel, or that if they did, the cars that carried such a
one word of cheer and hope amid this awful gloom; silent as the grave while multitudes of working men and working women are out of employment and in danger of perishing by famine, and revelling on the thought of coercing the seceding States with fire and sword, it may be that this long shadow of coming events, from the other side of the Atlantic, will unseal even Lincoln's lips, unbend his obstinate purpose, relax his Puritan rigidity, and cause him to cry aloud and spare not. It is too late for South Carolina; she has gone, and, we fear, irrecoverably, but, if Lincoln would save the remainder, if he would not see the Union split forever in twain, and Great Britain accomplish by her profound policy what a seven years war failed to achieve, he and they who are with him must speak, and not only speak, but act, and not only act, but give the most complete and satisfactory guarantees that they will observe the national compact hereafter in good faith, and in the letter and in the spirit.
c. Fredericksburg, Va.,Dec. 22. Hon. Caleb Cushing passed through this place this evening, on his return from South Carolina. Nearly all the way from Richmond he was surrounded by a crowd, to whom he was discoursing on the state of the counteed from our present troubles. He thinks that Virginia erred immensely when she refused to go into a conference with South Carolina. I was much interested in his remarks, and felt the more because he seemed to be really afflicted for his country. All I learned, as to the success of his mission, was, that South Carolina would shun collision with the Federal Government as far as possible. Times are very hard here. Merchants are doing but little. There have been some failures. But we hoprrived here this evening to see him. The little folks are anticipating a joyful time, as Christmas is so near. The Commissioners from South Carolina to the Federal Government passed on to-day, in company with Mr. Cushing. Yours, &c.,
