rolina gave the enemy a chance to take a threatening attitude, and improving her advantage on the instant, moved into the very place lately occupied by her adversary. Things looked serious, South Carolina had violated no breach of faith, yet it brought out coercion as the policy of Mr. Buchanan, and this policy has given Georgia her present stand.--Char. Cor. Balt. Amer. The Florida troops and Fort Pickens. The following is an extract from a letter dated Fort Barrancas, Pensacola, Jan. 17. The writer is a young gentleman of Charleston, and the letter is addressed to his father: "We have not yet made the attack on Fort Pickens, which is situated very much like Fort Sumter, and which will be attended with fearful havoc; but we expect to do so on Monday. God grant that I may pass the ordeal; but should I die, rely on it I will not disgrace your name. Our company will be in front, as we are the left wing of the regiment, and we go left in front.

A company had been formed for the purpose of establishing a permanent camp for volunteers near London. Two thousand huts are to be erected and let at small rents to individual volunteers. A dispatch from Liverpool states that the Duke of Sutherland died at his seat, Lilleshall, on the 14th inst. The London Times' city article of January 17th, says: The English funds opened with augmented heaviness this morning, but on the receipt of the dispatch one day later from America, showing increased case in the New York money market, where the rate is now the same as on this side, and subsequently the arrival of better quotations from Paris, the market slightly rallied, and closed with a tendency to firmness. In the discount market there has been rather an increased demand, and the general rate still remains about one-quarter p
ordered strict neutrality on the part of its vessels at Gaeta. Naples.--The bombardment of Gaeta is to be resumed on Monday. The Times deprecates the secession movement in America. It says, should a Southern Confederation become the real United States, as far as present and prospective territory is concerned, it is difficult to say whether the connection between New York and New England on the one hand, and Illinois and New England on the other, could long survive a total separation from the South.

and one on the 17th of the same month. It was suggested that a temporary arrangement could go into operation on the 20th of January, so that time be given to the General Government to know our views and be ready to answer yea or nay whether they are disposed to treat. But in the meantime the ordinary operations of our citizens are to go on. One matter more as to the revenues. The Postmaster of Charleston would most likely keep an account until the transaction was settled after January 17th. My friend from St. Michael has well proposed that the money received by the Postmaster should be considered in account, and settled with the General Government the day of the ratification of the Ordinance, as adopted by this Convention — that a month hence all matters can be arranged between us as between two independent nations. In the meantime, the accounts should go on, so that no sudden disruption shall take place. Sir, I merely suggest this as spoken by others. I learn that S
Assembling of Legislatures. --The Legislatures of Delaware, Pennsylvania and New York assemble to-morrow. The Governor of Kentucky has called an extra session of the Legislature, to convene on the 17th of January.
ork boldly, bravely, and without delay. We therefore respectfully suggest to your Excellency, that in our judgment the time has come for the voice of Maryland to be heard, and for its conservative tones to be raised in behalf of the preservation of this glorious Union. Since the last publication which we have seen of your Excellency's views (in reply to the Baltimore Committee,) the Governor of Kentucky has issued a call for the assembling of the Legislature of that State on the 17th of January.

We cannot state what course the Senate w
