tes, and alluding to the triumph just reported by telegraph. Mr. Cablile, in his rejoinder, applauded the Star Spangled Banner with equal enthusiasm. He spoke deprecatingly of the act of the Confederate Army in bombarding Fort Sumter, after Major Anderson's last reply to Gen. Beauregard's summons to surrender. Mr. Wise moved to amend Mr. Carlile's motion to strike out, by inserting, (should the blank be created, the following): "The importation of slaves, coolies or persons held to sng out all after the word "prohibited." In the course his of explanatory remarks, Mr. Early said said his heart was to-day bowed down with grief, not so much because the flag of the Union had been conquered, as that his old companion-in-arms, Major Anderson, had been compelled, by the force of overwhelming numbers, to surrender, and that Virginians were rejoicing over it. He intimated that whenever it was attempted to march a Southern army through Virginia to Washington, the invasion would be me
Testimonial to Major Anderson. --The citizens of Taunton, Mass., have just received a magnificent sword, which they design presenting to the gallant commander of Fort Sumter. The blade is of exquisitely tempered steel, the hill of carved ivory, surrounded with a heavily plated figure representing Liberty.

clock P. M., Col. James Chesnut, Jr., of Gen. Beauregard's staff, accompanied by Cols. Chisholm and Lee, left the city for Fort Sumter, bearing the summons to Major Anderson for the surrender of that fortification. They returned between five and six o'clock with the reply. As the precise nature of his answer has not yet transpironjectures concerning this important mission and the events of the day, but we forbear. At about 10 o'clock the Commanding General again communicated with Maj. Anderson, and he was given until 1 o'clock to return an answer. The city is quiet. Were it not for the uniforms in the streets we would not suppose we were on the t three o'clock a demand for the evacuation of Fort Sumter was made by Gen. Beauregard, through his Aids, Col. Chesnut, Col. Chisholm, and Capt.

Two were ten-inch, and weighed each 15,750 pounds. One was an eight-inch, weighing 9,475 pounds. As accompaniments, a car load of eight-inch shot, weighing sixty-four pounds each, and eight-inch shell, weighing fifty pounds each, went with them. More, making in all 500 shells, weighing fifty pounds each, are on route, destined for Savannah. --Atlanta Commonwealth, 9th.

Nothing else was talked of, or thought of, save the great triumph achieved by the heroic troops of the glorious Southern Confederacy in obliterating one of the Illinois ape's standing menaces against the assertion of Southern rights and equality.--So far as the opinion of the people is concerned, it would have been much more to the old rail-splitter's credit had he ordered Anderson to leave Fort Sumter, as an untenable and undesirable place, that to attempt, as he and his coadjutors did, to make the undoubtedly gallant Major the scapegoat of his insidious and damnable views. We repeat, that had wise counsels prevailed, the old ape would have had all the credit between a graceful leave-taking and an ignominious expulsion at the cannon's mouth. As soon as the news was ascertained to be undoubtedly true, crowds of citizens assembled on the different street corners,

This boasted stronghold of the Federal Government, which the Northern papers have just proclaimed would silence Fort Moultrie in an hour, has been compelled to succumb in a short space of time before the resistless fire of the Confederate Army, with out inflicting any injury upon its assailants.-- What are we to think of a Government, which, rather than perform the manly and magnanimous act of peacefully surrendering a position which they could not hold, exposed the gallant Anderson and his garrison to almost certain destruction ? They do not deserve to have in their service such an officer, and we earnestly hope, now that he has satisfied the most exacting demands of military honor, he will resign his position in the Army of the United States, and enroll himself under a flag which we are sure must have al the sympathies of his gallant and generous nature. The event has diffused the deepest delight through the Southern States, and the enthusiastic demonstrations o

Latest from Washington. Washington, April 14--11 P. M. --It is privately stated that 8,000 troops from Virginia (?) and 3,000 from Maryland, will be called for by the President. Official advices from Montgomery indicate that the Confederate Congress will, on assembling, immediately declare war. It is believed that in the act of declaration a distinction will be made between alien friends and alien enemies; the former including the border States and such citizens of the North as oppose the coercion policy of the Administration. All obligations to this class are as much to be respected as through a time of peace. The Republicans generally blame Anderson. Many of them are still incredulous that Fort Sumter has been evacuated. His gallantry and admiration by the Charlestonians are warmly commended by other parties. The tenor of the President's proclamation is not yet divulged here.
