From Washington, [special Correspondence of the Dispatch.] Washington, Jan. 10, 1861. All is excitement here to-day. The first gun has been fired at Charleston. The Government, now in the hands of Scott, has acted cunningly indeed. "The Star of the West was not a vessel of-war; yet she was fired into by the rebels"--that's the way they have made the case appear; and the North, to a man, will sustain Scott. But Anderson needed no reinforcements. He was already impregnable. The object of additional troops, therefore, could not have been peaceful. There is no need for argument. It is too late for that. We must fight. The thing is fated. We are doomed to a long and bloody war. This is the feeling of our ablest Southern men. Now that the danger is upon us, prompt action, guided by cool, clear judgment, on the part of Virginia, is what we need. Look to all the points of offense and defense. See that no more of the former fall into the hands of the enemy. We shall h

Mr. Keen rose to a point of order; but the Speaker decided that Mr. Anderson had the right to proceed, the pending question opening the whole subject to debate. Mr. Anderson resumed and concluded his remarks in advocacy of the bill. Mr. Caperton, of Monroe, obtMr. Anderson resumed and concluded his remarks in advocacy of the bill. Mr. Caperton, of Monroe, obtained the floor, but gave way to Mr. Keen, who desired to make a personal explanation.

The "Star of the West." The report that the "Star of the West" had sailed for Charleston with reinforcements for Major Anderson seemed, at the time, purely incredible. Not that the disposition of the Government to forward such reinforcements was for one moment to be doubted, but that the Commander-in-Chief of the United States Army should send a large body of men in a merchant steamer to run the gauntlet of land batteries, was a reflection upon his military experience and skill which few who know Gen. Scott could for one moment admit. A single well-directed shot would disable such a fragile fabric as the Star of the West, and even stout vessels-of-war, as proved by the Crimean contest, are no match for land batteries, properly handled. One of the finest steam-frigates in the British Navy, carrying 36 guns, was knocked to pieces by a small Russian battery of four guns, having materials for heating shot. Of course, every one supposed that instead of going to Charleston, the sag

at once upon their little fort, and convert it into a slaughter-pen, if they fired upon the "Star of the West," they fired nevertheless, and forced the steamer to give up her errand. What was there in the unmolested and unmenaced movement of Major Anderson from Moultrie to Sumter which compares with the nerve that was required to fire upon the Star of the West? Yet, every Northern town has fired salutes over the one, whilst the other will be mentioned only with a sneer. We doubt not that Majovement of Major Anderson from Moultrie to Sumter which compares with the nerve that was required to fire upon the Star of the West? Yet, every Northern town has fired salutes over the one, whilst the other will be mentioned only with a sneer. We doubt not that Major Anderson himself is capable of equal gallantry with the Carolinians, but we fancy that no one is more astonished than that brave and experienced officer at the nonsensical hurrah which has been raised over his change of position.
The first gun. There are a number of enemies of Southern rights who will make the most of the firing into the Star of the West, and pronounce that the first gun which unleashes the dogs of war. Tyranny and treachery are always ready to cast the blame, on unsubstantial pretext, upon a party which may be the object of tyranny, struggling against power. The first gun, really, was the movement of Major Anderson--his removal from a weak position to a strong one, and his destruction of United States property by spiking the Government cannon and burning the gun-carriages. Who says it was not the first gun? If it was not, why was the movement re-echoed by so many hundred guns amongst the Black Republicans and Northern coercionists? Was not a movement like that, so received by the enemies of South Carolina, prejudicial to that State? one placing her to disadvantage in a struggle? and therefore one of hostility? It was, indeed, the first gun, and has been re-echoed along the shores
