Brigadier General Beauregard.

Even the Black Republican press are forced to acknowledge the sagacity and energy which the Confederate States have displayed in their selection of a President and Vice President, and of their agents generally. One of the best proofs of this is their putting officers of the regular service at the head of their forces. We observe that Major Beauregard, one of the most accomplished officers of the late U. S. Army, who declined the Superintendency of West Point, that he might aid in the defence of his native State, Louisiana, has been appointed by the Confederate Government Brigadier General, and ordered to take command of all the forces at Charleston. In consequence of the foresight and energy of that heroic Commonwealth, South Carolina, there must be already an army of some ten thousand men in that State alone, well drilled, well equipped, and burning with impatience to meet the fee.
