on Abolitionists and the North. He was one of the first who volunteered, and was in regular service at Fort Moultrie, when, at the same time, he was writing for Greeley. A trap was set for him and he was caught, and shipped on Sunday. The truth is, he never would have escaped with his life, if it had not been known, by the besthe best proof, that the fellow humbugged Greeley, and the rest of the Abolition horde, with the greatest pack of lies ever started — lies which made the fellow some money, and did us no harm. But the lies sold Greeley's paper, and that is all he cared about. But it would be well to look out for spies now everywhere.

The cotton question. It has long been a problem of deepest interest to Philosopher Greeley --the Marat of the American press — how it was possible for the world to get along without the slave-grown cotton of the Southern States of this Union. He tried Africa, India, South America, by turns, pressed with zeal the expediency of substituting flax grown by free labor for it, and set the ingenuity of all abolitionism to work to invent machinery whereby it was to be wrought as cheaply and as successfully as cotton. This plan exploded, and then the Philosopher relied upon Providence to develop some plan to break the league with crime in the Southern States! But a prominent Southern man comes to the relief of the Philosopher of the abolitionists. This comforter expresses the fear (from the tenor of the language employed, we might infer it to be the wish,) that the European demand for Southern cotton will now fall off to nothing, in consequence of the subjugation of China.

Weed and Greeley. These two distinguished leaders of the Black Republican cohorts show no signs of compromise. It is now believed that Weed has the inside track for the spoils, a fact which harrows the sensibilities of the patriotic Horace to the core. He professes to have no taste nor scent for the official larder, neverthcured the nomination of the "Honest Old Ape" of Illinois. Now comes Seward's revenge. He is made Premier, and his trusty Lieutenant, Thurlow Weed, outgeneraling Greeley at every move, is believed to control the dispensation of the official patronage. To a man of Horace's high sense of honor, this ingratitude of Lincoln must be aved to control the dispensation of the official patronage. To a man of Horace's high sense of honor, this ingratitude of Lincoln must be as crushing as the dagger with which "the well beloved Brutus"" stabbed the Roman tyrant. We expect to hear soon that "Ingratitude, more keen than traitor's steel," has made an end of Greeley.
Fort Sumter. The Washington correspondent of the New York Tribune, whose editor, Mr. Greeley, now divides with the conservative Seward, (author of the "irrepressible conflict,") the confidence of the Executive, insists that "the reason of the surrender of Fort Sumter must not be misunderstood." It is done wholly because it cannot now be reinforced before the supplies of the garrison are exhausted. The writer adds, "that the rumors about Fort Pickens being given up are entirely unfounded.--This fortress can be reinforced, and it will be. An extra session of Congress is likely to be soon called to supply the omission of the last, and enable the Administration to assert the authority of the Government. The policy will probably be to repeal the laws making ports of the seceding States ports of foreign entry, and to station national vessels thereat to prevent foreign importations." The Tribune anticipates a howl of triumph from the Secessionists, but insists that the alleged w
ent, and others, who had proceeded down the river in the tow-boat Wm. Allison, Wednesday night, in search of a surveying schooner, in the employment of the late U. S. Government, which had lately been taking observations below this city, not having been successful in their search, landed at City Point, and assisted in the above affair.--The party from Richmond also took in custody the ship Argo, of Bath, Maine, whose captain is said to be an arch-traitor and incendiary, after the fashion of Greeley, Beecher, Webb & Co. It will soon be evident to our Northern neighbors (?) that they will have to clear out, bag and baggage, from this part of the country. Like the ticketless passenger on the railroad, they will, ere long, be emptied by the wayside. P. S.--We learned last night, at 9 o'clock, that the Government schooner mentioned above had been taken, and was en route for this city in tow of the tug-boat Allison. The steamship Jamestown was released from arrest at City Point,
consistency as advocates of peace was the conduct of Sumner, whose bloody shirt and cracked skull were carried over the ocean for public exhibition at Exeter Hall, as mute but eloquent witnesses of his non-combatancy. The abolition party proper have never advocated a sectional war upon the South.--They have denounced the Union and repudiated the Constitution; they have cried aloud for dissolution; but they have never advocated a war of conquest and subjugation against the South. Even Greeley, now so blood-thirsty and so valiant, was, only a few years ago, too tender of life to eat roast beef, or fowl or fish; preferring the vegetarian diet, eschewing blood and the shedding of it. Accordingly we find Wendell Phillips, the Moses of the abolition movement, the writer of the book of Genesis in abolition literature, setting his face against war. In a recent speech at Boston, he is reported as delivering himself of the following sentiments — decidedly the most catholic and judicious
ave saved out of my earnings in odd times, and I want to put it in these bonds, if you will let me." Mr. Knox told him he could not do it without his master's consent, whereupon Albert went out, found his master, obtained his consent, and the supscription books show three hundred dollars of coupon bonds, subscribed for and paid by S. G. Hardaway, trustee for his slave Albert, and with the money of Albert — an autograph copy of which I will send, if desired, gratis, to the "Kangaroo" of the White House, or the hoary-beaded old sinner, Greeley, subject, of course, to their comments. Another slave, upon being told of Albert's subscription, drew out one hundred dollars which he had on deposit, and subscribed for conpon bonds to that amount. A messenger has just come from the State-House with the information that one hundred additional guns are to be fired on the Capitol grounds in honor of Virginia's secession. I am invited to be present, and must be off. J. R. P.
ption as they deserve. One more illustration is furnished by the conservative press. But yesterday denouncing the sectional government of Lincoln as one which the South could not and would not submit to, it is to-day echoing the war-cry of Greeley with an uproar that almost drowns the voice of their new leader. We were not surprised at the sudden somersault of the New York Herald. No one ever suspected the Sawney of that sheet of honesty or manliness. But there were those who regarded and honorable. Brooks had partaken of Virginia hospitality, his wife was a Virginia lady, and his paper fought manfully for the South up to the hour of trial and danger.--Then he deserted us at once. At a single bound he threw himself into the Greeley column, following his new captain, the philosopher of the white hat, with an alacrity and zeal that seemed intended to atone for past of fences. He suggests to the Government the building of steamers of light draught, that may ran up the South
Plan of the campaign. That great military genius, Raymond, of the New York Times, generally known as "the little villain," an epithet bestowed upon him by his courteous contemporary, Greeley, of the N. Y. Tribune, has burst out in an amazing explosion of wrath against Virginia, throwing out streams of red-hot lava, that threaten to submerge this unhappy Common wealth from the Potomac to the Ohio. If the U. S. Government had only hit upon the happy device of sending Raymond to relieve Major Anderson, we can easily conceive that Charleston would have surrendered at sight. He did publish wise plans, we believe, by which that object could be effected; but we suppose the Government failed to appreciate their merit, for Charleston is still safe and defiant. Raymond was a spectator of the military operations in the Sardinian contest, and is said to have made better time in a retreat from an Austrian regiment than was ever known in the history of war. We therefore listen with respect
Greeley's Plan of a campaign — a grandconquest Meditated. New York, April 28. --The Tribune says:-- "So soon as everything requisite shall be prepared and supplied, there will doubtless be a force of 200,000 men sent to the relief of Fort Pickens, and it will march through, not around, Richmond, Raleigh, Charleston, Savannah, Montgomery and New Orleans (! !) being joined at the last-named city by a like force, which will have made its way down the Mississippi." [It is certainly kind in the Yankees to keep us well posted in regard to their plans, in advance.]
