Decision of conduct.

It is generally conceded that whatever want of decision may have been manifested by the President in the administration of public affairs, there was none whatever in the " Star of the West," after her arrival at Morris' Island. It requires a great deal more stamina to give up a bad course than to persevere in it, and the promptness and energy with which the Government vessel turned from the error of her ways, upon the first admonition from the Palmettoes, is worthy the imitation of an infirm and vacillating Administration.
