jection to its adoption.--He is perfectly familiar with all the approaches to the harbor of Charleston, having been long connected with the Coast Survey, and had practical experience as the commander of one of Aspinwall's steamers. His scheme did not contemplate any serious danger in running the gauntlet of the batteries on the islands which guard the channels, but only in landing the men and provisions at Sumter, after it had been reached. If a fire was opened upon his transports from Fort Moultrie or the other batteries, it would be necessary for Sumter to silence them in order to discharge the reinforcements. Any attempt, therefore, looking to that object, would almost inevitably lead to bloodshed, and before resorting to it the Administration would be constrained to expect that alternative. Even if successful without great loss of life, nothing would be gained but the retention of a fortress which has only a local value in protecting Charleston, and is of no national moment wh

The supply of provisions now in the garrison will probably enable Maj. Anderson to sustain his command reasonably well until the 15th of April. From all the facts disclosed by this investigation, it is manifest that Fort Sumter must be abandoned, or civil war inaugurated. Capt. Fox is cautious, intelligent, and well-informed, and was brought to the notice of the Government by Mr. Aspinwall, and some of the principal ship-owners of New York and Boston. Mr. Lamon, of Illinois, who also went to Charleston to make certain inquiries, will return to-morrow evening, or the next morning. After all the information has been laid before the President, and he has satisfied his own mind conclusively as to the absolute necessity, the order withdrawing Major Anderson will be approved.
