The plan.

--I am at last enabled to send you a comprehensive announcement of the governmental policy concerning offensive movements. It is the intention of the President to crush out this rebellion, if possible, before the 4th of July, 1861. He has determined and ordered that if it be practicable — simultaneous attacks be made upon Norfolk, Richmond, Harper's Ferry and Pensacola, and that a flotilla be sent down the Mississippi river.--There is to be no trifling. Good citizens will be protected, but traitors will be hung and their property will be confiscated.--Wash. Cor. N. Y. Times.
