Charleston, April 10.
--10 A. M.--The reinforcement of Fort Sumter will be attempted by the U. S. vessels on the flood tide to-day or to-morrow.

The floating battery was put in place, at its final destination, yesterday.

Every man, capable of bearing arms, is off to the different posts in the harbor, and the stores in the city are closed.

Thousands of soldiers are arriving in hourly trains from the interior.

No one doubts Lincoln's policy now. We are amply prepared for him, and there is but one feeling prevailing here, "Victory or Death."

Gen. Beauregard is in command of all the forces.

Maj. Anderson has acted treacherously, and he will have now to take the consequences.
