al Order of August 17th: "In accordance with instructions from the Secretary of War, persons in the employment of the Government are regarded as not liable to militia duty, and will be retained in their present occupations and employments until it is otherwise ordered and determined;" --and in accordance with your telegram of August 18, stating "the militia may volunteer before enrolling, if they volunteer for three years, or the war, they are entitled to bounty." And your letter of August 21st, stating "until mustered into the State service the militia can volunteer, and will receive bounty. If they enlist for three years or the war." I issued another General Order, which follows: "The General commanding announces, upon the authority of the Secretary of War to the militia in this department between 35 and 45 years of age, and not yet enrolled, that they may volunteer in the service of the Confederate State for three years or the war, and by so doing will receive a bounty of

Virginia Central Railroad. --We gather the following facts in relation to this road from the reports of the President, Treasurer, Chief Engineer, and General Superintendent, for the fiscal year ending September 30th: The gross receipts of the company for the period indicated were larger than they ever were before, viz: $1.016,157.77; the expense of administration amounting to $371,809.96, left a balance of nett revenues of $644,347.81. A large proportion of this sum has been expended in paying dividends and other indebtedness of the company. Cost of road, including last ten miles from Jackson's river depot to Covington, and equipment to Oct. 1st, is $5.918,882.84. Total cost of completing road to Covington, $10,000 additional. Distance from Richmond to Eastern terminus of the Covington and Ohio Railroad, 205 miles; the Blue Ridge Railroad, owned by the State, 17 miles long, being included therein. Length of road owned by the company 188 miles; cost of same per mile, $30,535.6

Arrival of Yankee prisoners. --Eleven privates, belonging to the 1st Vermont cavalry, captured by the 1st North Carolina troop in Warren county, October 26, were brought to Richmond on Saturday.
same day, presenting to me Gen Jackson's conduct in 1838 during the period of nullification, as an example, requires no special notice. Even if the cases were not entirely different, I had previously determined upon a policy of my own, as will appear from my annual message. This was, at every hazard, to collect the customs at Charleston, and outside of the port, if need be, in a vessel of war. Mr. Coloock, the existing collector, as I had anticipated, resigned his office about the end of December, and immediately thereafter I nominated to the Senate, as his successor, a suitable person, prepared at any personal risk to do his duty. That body, however, throughout its entire session, declined to act on this nomination. Thus, without a collector, it was rendered impossible to collect the revenue. IV. General Scott's statements allege that "the Brooklyn, with Capt. Vodges's company alone, left the Chesapeake for Fort Pickens about January 22d, and on the 29th President Buchanan,

ore or less correctness, were unfortunately circulated, especially throughout the South. The editors of the National Intelligencer, in assigning a reason for their publication, state that both in public prints and in public speeches allusions had been made to them, and some misapprehensions of their character had got abroad. II. and III--Gen. Scott states that he arrived in Washington on the 12th, and, accompanied by the Secretary of War, held a conversation with the President on the 15th of December. Whilst I have no recollection whatever of this conversation, he, doubtlessly states correctly that I did refuse to send 300 men to reinforce Major Anderson at Fort Moultrie, who had not then removed to Fort Sumter. The reason for this refusal is manifest to all who recollect the history of the time. But twelve days before, in the annual message of the 3d of December, I had urged upon Congress the adoption of amendments to the Constitution of the same character with those subsequen

e Peace Convention. V. But we now come to an important period when dates will be essentially necessary to disentangle the statement of Gen. Scott. The South Carolina Commissioners were appointed on the 22d, and arrived in Washington on the 27th December. The day after their arrival it was announced that Major Anderson had removed from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter. This rendered them furious. On the same day they addressed an angry letter to the President demanding the surrender of Fort his statement, should have asserted that "the South Carolina commissioners had already been many days in Washington, and no movement of defence (on the part of the United States) was permitted" These commissioners arrived in Washington on the 27th of December; Gen. Scott's request was made to the President on the 30th. It was complied with on 31st, and a single day is all that represents the "many days" of the General. Again, Gen. Scott asserts, in the face of these facts, that the Pre

them furious. On the same day they addressed an angry letter to the President demanding the surrender of Fort Sumter. The President answered this letter on the 30th December by a peremptory refusal. This brought forth a reply from the Commissioners on the 2d January, 1861, of such an insulting character that the President instnce the President's anti- secession message at the commencement of the session of Congress. Under these changed circumstances, Gen. Scott, by note, on Sunday, 30th December, addressed the following inquiry to the President: "Will the President permit Gen. Scott, without reference to the War Department, and otherwise as eral seems not to have then known that Mr. Floyd was out of office. Never did a request meet a more prompt compliance. It was received on Sunday evening December 30th. On Monday morning I gave instructions to the War and Navy Departments, and on Monday evening Gen. Scott came to congratulate me that the Secretaries had issue

Holt and myself endeavored, in vain, to obtain a ship-of-war for the purpose, and were finally obliged to employ the passenger steamer "Star of the West." Will it be believed that the substitution of the "Star of the West" for the powerful steamer Brooklyn, of which he now complains, was by the advice of Gen. Scott himself? I have never heard this doubted until I read the statement. At the interview already referred to between the General and myself, on the evening of Monday, the 31st of December, I suggested to him that, although I had not received the South Carolina Commissioners in their official capacity, but merely as private gentlemen, yet it might be considered an improper act to sent the Brooklyn with reinforcements to Fort Sumter until I had received an answer from them to my letter of the preceding day; that the delay could not continue more than forty eight hours. He promptly concurred in this suggestion as gentlemanly and proper, and the orders were not transmitted t

n their official capacity, but merely as private gentlemen, yet it might be considered an improper act to sent the Brooklyn with reinforcements to Fort Sumter until I had received an answer from them to my letter of the preceding day; that the delay could not continue more than forty eight hours. He promptly concurred in this suggestion as gentlemanly and proper, and the orders were not transmitted to the Brooklyn on that evening.--My anticipations were correct, for, on the morning of the 2d of January, I received their insolent note, and sent it back to them. In the meantime, however, the General had become convinced, by the representation of a gentleman whom I forbear to name, that the batter plan, as the Secretaries of War and the Navy informed me, to secure secrecy and success, and reach the fort, would be to send a fast side-wheel mercantile steamer from New York with the reinforcement. Accordingly the "Star of the West" was selected for the duty. The substitution of this me

there was no present necessity for sending reinforcements, and that when sent they should go, not in a vessel of commerce, but of war. Hence the countermand was dispatched by telegraph to New York; but the vessel had sailed a short time before it reached the officer (Col. Scott) to whom it was addressed." A statement of these facts, established by dates, proves conclusively that the President was not only willing but anxious in the briefest period to reinforce Fort Sumter. On the 4th of January, the day before the departure of the Star of the West from New York, as Gen. Scott in his statement admits, succor was sent to Fort Taylor, Key West, and to Fort Jefferson, Tortugas Island, which reached these points in time for their security. He nevertheless speculates on the consequences which might have followed had the reinforcements not reached their destination in due time, and even expresses the extraordinary opinion that, with the possession of these forts, "the rebels might
