the West arrived here this morning, with United States troops on board, and was fired into, and is now believed to be sinking. Ship nothing South for the present. I am sorry I cannot give you any more news, as all the companies are ordered out, and I am included in the ranks of one of them. Important from Springfield--Mr Lincoln to be escorted to the Capital by the Illinois Zouaves. [From the Albany Evening Journal.] The President elect will be escorted to Washington by the Springfield (ill.) Zouaves, in spite of threats coming from any source. This company is composed of young men who have for some months past been under the instruction of Col. Ellsworth, and in drill they are said to be fully equal to the genuine original Zouaves. A correspondent writing to the Davenport (Iowa) Gazette, says: "This company intends to do escort duty to the President elect on the 4th of March next, accompanying him to Washington, and returning by Philadelphia, New York, Albany, etc. Th

d the Republican party, which, to use the language of Jefferson, "has wriggled itself into power under the auspices of morality, " as embodying the policy that Great Britain has pursued for a quarter of a century in endeavoring to equalize the races on this continent — to reduce white men to a forbidden level with negroes, and thusers extorted from an unwilling despot; and, if any additional evidence he needed to show the alliance of the so-called Republican party with the monarchists of Great Britain to dissolve the Union, regardless of its fearful consequences, it can be find in the fact that its recognized leaders in Congress have deliberately rejected Se, That we, the working men of New York, hereby pledge ourselves to oppose the British anti-slavery party in every legitimate way; that we feel with sorrow that Great Britain has conquered the North with the pen, having abolitionized the press and the pulpit, and while the heel of her oppression is upon white men in Ireland, England

with the South.--She was the flag-ship of the Revolution; and borrowing an expression from a recent production of one of her most gifted sons, she should have "springs upon her cables and her broadside to." If I may be permitted to make a suggestion, it would be that the Legislature, without delay, and without interference with its call of a Convention, might inaugurate a meeting of the border States of Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, Tennessee and Missouri, slave States; and New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Iowa, free States, through two Commissioners from each, to arrange, if possible, a programme of adjustment, to be submitted to the other States as conclusive of the whole matter. Should they agree, I think their recommendation would be followed by the other States, and incorporated into the Constitution and placed on the footing of an unalterable compact. Surely no States can be more deeply interested in the work of restoring the country to

ed under sealed orders has gone to the rescue of the forts at Pensacola, though it is feared she will be too late, in consequence of the rush of volunteers from Alabama and elsewhere, who are engaged in the secession scheme. The command at Fort Pickens, which is still in possession of the Government, Gen. Scott thinks may hold out until relief is obtained.--The other two forts are in possession of the Revolutionists. There are no troops at Tortugas. Captain Meigs and a few laborers are in the Department of his resignation. A dispatch to the Florida Senator says: "We repaired down here and captured Fort Barrancas and Navy-Yard, and then paroled the officers, granting them permission to continue to occupy their quarters. We are now in possession. This move was in consequence of the Government garrisoning Fort Pickens, which has before remained unoccupied. You will propose to the Administration resuming the statu quo anti bellum, and we will immediately evacuate."

Several attempts at creating a disturbance occurred during the meeting. Cheers were given for Gen. Scott, for the Union, and for Major

nal interference in this behalf with the Territories, for other reasons. Even passing over the impolicy of such interference, it was in its best view useless. God's own law of climate had regulated the matter; and let the children of earthly wisdom act as they may, it will still continue to do it. The man who would talk of cultivating the rice and cotton fields, and sugar plantations of the South with free labor, denies to himself the light of observation and experience. Look to the West India Islands--no part of the Globe makes a louder outcry for labor, or offers higher wages than they do, and yet the tide of emigration from Europe sweeps by them in a vast current, which is arrested in its course only by a more Northern and healthy clime. Asia and Africa have to be resorted to for laborers, while the Caucasian of Europe flees, as from a pestilence, the rays of a burning sun, and becomes the cultivator of the rays of a burning sun, and becomes the cultivator of the cereals, or tur

Resolved, That we, the working men of New York, hereby pledge ourselves to oppose the British anti-slavery party in every legitimate way; that we feel with sorrow that Great Britain has conquered the North with the pen, having abolitionized the press and the pulpit, and while the heel of her oppression is upon white men in Ireland, England and Scotland, she tries to divert attention from her sins at home by false philanthropy for negroes in America; and believing our Southern brethren now engaged in the holy cause of American liberty, and trying to roll back this avalanche of Britishism, we extend to them our heartfelt sympathy, and when they shall need it to resist unjust oppression, we believe we shall not be found wanting in more effectual support.
