Newport is again to become the commercial rival of New York. If Sprague is elected Governor of Rhode Island, that plucky little State will at once abandon the old hulk of the Union, offering at once a commercial depot and a summer residence for Southerners. The estimated value of the traffic thus diverted from New York, may be set down at $50,000,000 annually, so long as the latter remains in the Union. Fort Pickens will soon be reduced to the same condition as Fort Sumter. Glorious account come from all parts of the New Confederation.--New York Tribune, April 1.
