thing of a tangible character, while they omitted all that would be rosily for the security of the South. They gave no guarantees for the recovery of fugitives — no security against the operations of the underground railroad. He alluded to Lincoln's proposition for a National Convention, which he illustrated by the couplet of the spider and the fly. If Virginia got into such a Convention, she would never get out again. It would not do for Virginia to told her arms in slumber — she must do something. The probable evacuation of Fort Sumter was here touched upon, and he spoke of his efforts with President Buchanan in that direction. He thought the proceeding commendable in Lincoln, even though the necessity was forced upon him. He wished that the same policy might be pursued in regard to Fort Pickens, and that the Southern Confederacy might be recognized, in order to save the fragments of the Union. But events portended that something else was in contemplation, and it would no
Sudden Conversions. --There is a general surprise at the number of "gentlemen in office" who are ardent Republicans. But that one knows better, it might be supposed that the late Administration was of the Republican faith. The suddenness of their conversion and warmth of their seal make their sincerity doubtful. They will have to go, though it is estimated that nine-tenths of Buchanan's appointees in Washington are now strong Lincoln men."Wash. Letter.
Fortress Monroe. The Northern journals state that orders have been issued by President Lincoln for concentrating all the available troops at Fortresses Monroe and McHenry, and that large quantities of supplies have been shipped and are on their way to these forts. The U. S. frigates Cumberland and Pocahontas have left Vera Cruz for Norfolk. The U. S. squadrons in the Pacific and Mediterranean have been ordered home. This confirms the information which we published yesterday. The occupation of Old Point in force renders Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina, powerless.
Carl Shurz. Of course, Mr. Lincoln is to reward this man with an important foreign appointment. He has been in this country only six years, is a Red and Black Republican of the deepest dye, and an avowed Atheist, who glories in his shame. This fugitive from his native land gave Mr. Lincoln two hundred thousand German votes in the Northwest, and must have his reward. Carl Shurz.

s county: Two negroes were lodged in jail at the Court-House, Wednesday, for attempting to kill Mr. Charles E. Jones, who keeps a grocery store near the gold mines. The negroes, who were from the Green Spring neighborhood, called at Jones' grocery at 11 o'clock at night, pretending to want something which he was getting, when they attempted to beat out his brains with a club. Though badly wounded, he made such a show of resistance that they took to their heels.--Eight negroes, part of the estate of Robert Morse, were sold Wednesday for $7,000.--Last week a plot was discovered among the negroes of Mr. Spotswood Atkinson, who lives about two miles from the Old Hopeful Church, (on the line of Louisa and Hanover,) to murder their master. Their object was to get possession of a lot of gold and silver, which he was known to have in the house. The negroes, after the plot was discovered, said they had intended to make use of the gold and silver themselves, and send the notes to Lincoln.
Mr. Branch shall act in this crisis; but the real motive, I suspect, is to ascertain the strength of the two parties here. From the excitement that prevails, it is evident that everybody takes a strong interest in this matter — votes have been polled rapidly, and there will, undoubtedly, be a heavy vote cast. The reported intention of the Administration at Washington to evacuate. Fort Sumter has relieved the minds of our citizens as of a heavy weight, though no credit is given to Lincoln for this apparently peaceful measure. I noticed at the Southern depot, to-day, five cars freighted with powder, (number of kegs 2,800,) destined for South Carolina. The publication of the Bulletin, in semi-weekly form, will be commenced on Thursday, 15th of this month, under the editorial control of H. Clay Pate, Esq. The new issue will have no connection with the business of the old; but, like it, will be Democratic, and will advocate the immediate and irrevocable secession of Vi
s Japanese swindle has been outdone; publicans have been found who surpass the Lelands, and Albany eclipses New York. Mr. Lincoln and his suite are more prodigious feeders and drinkers than the No-Kamis.--They remained for less than one day at the was rendered to the amount of eleven hundred and twenty dollars. As there were eighteen persons in the party, two of whom, Mr. and Mrs Lincoln, did not dine in the hotel, the expense for each person, three-quarters of a day, was just seventy dollarsMrs Lincoln, did not dine in the hotel, the expense for each person, three-quarters of a day, was just seventy dollars! Included in this bill was a charge of three hundred and fifty-seven dollars for wine, or above twenty- two dollars or nine bottles a head. We are not surprised, after such drinking, at a considerable charge for Congress water. Neither is it wondcluding sixty dollars given to servants. How moderate in comparison with the traveling party of the President elect!--Mr. Lincoln being a rigid temperance man, the keepers of the Delavan have probably taken their revenge upon him in this manner. N
he horrors of civil war was thorough preparation to meet it; that if the preparation proposed in the bill should be instrumental in preventing the calamities of war, then the appropriation asked for would prove economical, remunerative and beneficent; but if war was inevitable, then the appropriation was, of all things, the most indispensable for the preservation of the lives of the people, and the honor of the State. Gentlemen had argued as if the advocates of this bill were afraid of Abraham Lincoln. He, for one, avowed he was afraid of the infamy of submission to unchecked Black Republican rule, and preferred death under arms upon the battle-field. He was afraid to expose the bosom of Virginia unarmed to the bayonets of Republican myrmidons. He repudiated the idea advocated by some, that it should be left to the discretion of the Governor or the Convention to suspend the appropriation, and at some length further argued in favor of vigorous action by the Legislature, and den
Female applicant. --A Miss Scott has gone to Washington from Canandaigua, an applicant for the Post-Office. She was formerly a music teacher at Elmira. She had a presentiment of the election of Lincoln last May, and told him so. He acknowledged her letter, and she thinks she has thus made one point of the game, so she has gone to Washington with a petition numerously signed and expects to come home, no doubt, with a commission in her reticule.
the free end the stars States in the spirit of Abraham and Lot. The 'covenant with death must be annulled; the agreement with hell' must no longer stand, it is a stature, a decision, a terrible cure, to attempt to perpetuate it. God wills its immediate and eternal overthrow; the will of God be done. Let the free North be free indeed — fashion of own institutions and dictate her own policy, leaving the South with all her dread responsibilities resting upon her." Either blood must flow like water, or Mr. Lincoln and the North must back down, and confess that the American Union is dissolved beyond the power of restorations. The dissolution exists, remarks the N. Y. Express, and Garrison recognizes it — in which, he is far more sensible and sight-seeing than Gassley. We may thank him also for the reference to Abraham and Lor, the former, who had 318 slaves, and is styled in Scriptors the "friend of God," being a fair representative of the slaveholding "sinners" of the Sout
