South Carolina to Virginia.

The reply of South Carolina to Virginia, published in yesterday's Dispatch , is characterized by great dignity, courtesy, and determination. They who suppose that State is not in earnest, have no knowledge of the character of her people. They are not the hot-headed, vaporing race which it suits the purpose of abolition editors and letter-writers to represent them. From the beginning of these difficulties, the addresses of their public functionaries, their speeches and debates, have all been characterized by that plainness, directness, and freedom from all exaggeration and hyperbole which show a people who are in earnest. The courteous and conclusive answer to Virginia adds a new wreath to the heroic brow of South Carolina.
