And will not Major Anderson be empowered and compelled, as an officer of the United States Government, to open fire on Fort Moultrie?--And will he not do it? And can he not entirely dismantle her in 48 hours. Having completed his work, what will hinder the said man-of-

Anderson who commanded the forts in Charleston harbor, until an absolute necessity for doing so should make itself apparent, lest it might unjustly be regarded as a men Carolina. No necessity for these reinforcements seemed to exist. I was assured by distinguished and upright gentlemen of South Carolina that no attack upon Major Anderson was intended, but that, on the contrary, it was the desire of the State authorities, as much as it was my own, to avoid the fatal consequences which must even Orr, "commissioners" from South Carolina, and the accompanying documents and copies of my answer thereto, dated 31st December. In further explanation of Major Anderson's removal from Fort Moultrie to Fort Sumter, it is proper to state that, after my answer to the South Carolina "commissioners," the War Department received a

Mr. Staats wore a blue cockade, and applauded vociferously when the intelligence was received of the Star of the West having been fired into by the parties now in Fort Moultrie. The resolutions of Mr. Robertson, after further debate, were finally referred to a select committee, consisting of Messrs. Robertson, Yerby, Bass, Christian, Anderson, Magrader of Albemarle, Smith of Taylor, Witten and Newton, with power to sit immediately. On motion of Mr. Kemper, the House then proceeded to the consideration of the Convention bill; the first section of which was variously amended and debated. Further debate on the Convention bill was postponed, to allow the reading of a report from the select committee. Mr. Robertson, the chairman, presented the following series of resolutions as the result of the deliberations of the commit

He defended South Carolina, denied that any attempt was to be made on the District of Columbia, and ridiculed the idea of turning Washington into a camp. He denied the right of executing the laws by military force, and asked if judicial proceedings were to be superceded by drumhead law? Fort Sumter had been garrisoned contrary to the plighted faith of the Government, and while Major Anderson had only used his discretionary power, the movement was an act of hostility.--He denied the right of the government to garrison the forts in a harbor when the State objected. The constitutionality of secession was argued at length. The great object of Congress, he said, should be to effect a peaceable separation, so that the Government might be reconstructed at some future day.
