. 25.--It is said that Jefferson Davis
is at Charleston
Shortly after his arrival it was quietly arranged for him to pay a visit to Fort Sumter
, which was accomplished privately.
The interview is represented to have been an earnest and prolonged one, but all not immediately in the secret were left wholly to conjecture as to what took place between him and Major Anderson
It has, however, been knowingly given out at Charleston
that there will be no fight at Fort Sumter
--great stress evidently being placed upon the fact that these two old acquaintances in the army cannot be brought into bloody conflict with each other.
On the other hand, it is believed that if the alleged visit had elicited any particular comfort for the great leader of the secession movement, such good news would not have been kept for private consumption merely.--New York Times
