ocsin of war. Our people are inflamed to-day, and but for the cool hands and heads at the helm of affairs, an attack would be made this day. In conversing with some of the officers, today, they remarked, that if the Governor would permit they would capture it in six hours. Can you do it? I asked. "Yes, we will do it, and do it quickly." How many lives will it cost? I asked. "Lives; we are not counting lives; that flag shall not float there,"was the reply. But, said I, it may be that the Government will take it down, or Major Anderson will. "We don't want it taken down, we intend to shoot it down." I must confess, my heart saddens when I think of the mourning this affair must create in our midst; for these soldiers are no hirelings, they are our children, our brothers, our husbands, the flower of South Carolina; and all this on account of men interfering with other men's affairs — intermeddler. But "The Lord reigns, let the people rejoice," and tremble, too Virginius.
