The following despatch was sent, a few days ago, to James Buchanan, late President of the United States:

Resolved, By a few of the women of New York that we have read with feelings of great indignation the despatch sent to Mr. Lincoln by James Buchanan, late President of the United States, saying that he will “sustain the Administration;” and are determined, though abhorring this type of Southern civilization, unless said James Buchanan keeps quiet and silent, henceforth in his cupboard at Wheatland, to provide the necessary weight of feathers and other accompaniments for the single ladies of Wheatland, [43] who, we hear, have threatened to make a “coat” for the man who has, by his imbecility, involved us in one of the most dreadful wars the world has ever seen — the man who now offers to “sustain,” yet sustained nothing but the designs of the rebels when he could have sustained the majesty of Law — who said, that if States wished to secede, no one could prevent it, while knowing that the Constitution distinctly says, “The Union of these States is perpetual” --the man who permitted the laws to be defied and the flag of his country to be disgraced without raising a hand to rebuke or prevent either outrage.--N. Y. Times, April 24.
