Washington, Dec. 26.--“I saw a letter from one of the soldiers at Fort Sumter to his mother to-day. He says the fort is in excellent condition for defence, full of ammunition and arms, and with a few more men, could defy any enemy that could approach it. He says, all hands expect a conflict, and feel greatly alarmed at the prospect, because their numbers are so small. They hope the Government will do something to aid them,--if not, they will defend the fort to the best of their ability. The closing words are quite touching and solemn.” --Letter from Washington, Times, N. Y.
