Vessel sunk. --During the gale at City Point, on Wednesday night last, the schooner Augustus Holley, of Norfolk, Davis, master, sprung a leak and sunk in a few minutes thereafter. The "Holley" was loaded with rum, for I & G. B. Davenport, of this city, to which place the vessel was bound. When the leak was discovered, the vessel settled so rapidly that the captain had no time to remove any of the cargo, which was insured for $6,400. On Thursday, about 150 barrels of rum which had floated off the deck, was picked up and brought to this city. All that portion in the hold will no doubt be saved. The loss, therefore, will probably not exceed one-fifth the insurance.
he President's plan South Carolina to postpone secession on the 4th of March next will hardly avail.-- As South Carolina member said to me this evening, "We have spiked that gun." Senator Seward is willing to grant the South Almost anything, but the Tribune of this morning says, "Let the winds howl on; the free States will not surrender their principles on account of threatened disunion." Greeley's own article states the case, but takes no decided ground, so there is no day light yet. All that money, beauty, place and power, can do, will be brought to bear in favor of Union. We shall see Southerners, heretofore fiery, backing down. Messrs Cobb, Thompson, Jeff, Davis, and Fitzpatrick of Alabama, have, it is rumored, yielded to the President's pious appeal for staving off secession. If so, the South will be paralyzed, and the Union saved for a time.--Mississippi is reported fishy. Still, it is believed that six States will be out of the Union before thirty days. Z.

and praying like the people of Ireland supplicating the British Parliament--to my mind, they were guilty of an incomprehensible act of voluntary enslavement. Mr. Botts will not take upon trust the work of Yancey, Rhett, Pickens, Toombs, and Davis. I say to Mr. Botts, that he has called over the names of true Southern men, who do not go about extolling, magnifying the wealth, greatness and power of their enemies, with a view to intimidate and frighten their fellow- citizens into submissionto fight for their rights. Men, sir, whom posterity will immortalize. If the Virginia people will not take upon trust a government from these patriots, I suppose they will hardly accept one from John M. Botts, Shephard Clemens, and Henry Winter Davis, a trio that will go down to posterity with a fame which no true patriot can envy. Mr. Editor, sir, while I would like to give my opinion upon a few more points of Mr. Botts' logic, I have already trespassed upon my original bounds, and subs
