ce of its intentions, by enacting a tariff law odiously protective, odiously in conflict with the political teachings and principles of Virginia, odiously unconstitutional in every aspect in which Virginia has been wont to view the instrument of Federal compact. That section has grown so great in population, and so hostile in purpose, as to have elected a President by its own exclusive vote, pledged to doctrines opposed to those which have ever been cherished by Virginia as the apple of her eye; and that President comes to his capital, proclaiming on his way, as if in derision of Virginia and exultation over her political discomfiture, that a sovereign State of this Confederacy is but as a county in a Commonwealth. On the question of "estoppel," is there any man so struck with judicial blindness as to contend that Virginia is bound by her antecedents to give up her doctrines, hold aloof from her disciples and daughters of the South, and become as a county in Lincoln's, empire?
e residence for those who are now occupying it. The same paper, commenting on the doubts existing about the evacuation, says: It is time this game of procrastination and vacillation, and double-dealing jugglery, were stopped. Fort Sumter must and will be very soon devoted to its original and proper, and lawful objects and purposes, in and for the defence of the harbor of Charleston. The mode of effecting that necessary change has been, so far, left to the discretion of others; it is now time that we should quicken and stimulate that discretion. If the rulers that afflict the country subject to the away of Lincoln, cannot appreciate the necessity and meet the responsibility of evacuation, we can and should give them, or their representatives usurping places in Fort Sumter, the alternative opportunity of capitulation. If soft words and grass will not effect our purpose, we can easily try stones. But, by some means or other, and very speedily, Fort Sumter must be ours.
ase their imported goods at New Orleans rather than at New York." Weed consoles his party, however, with the idea that the authority of the Government can be as well maintained "by collecting the revenue on the quarter decks of armed frigates, to be stationed at the entrances of the harbors."--But this will be an act of war, and an impracticability besides, which would be resented by the most pacific of the Border States. It is difficult for mere politicians to understand that the old United States Government perished on the 6th of November last, it then ceasing to be a National, and becoming, by the election of Lincoln, a Sectional Government; that the Union was subsequently divided by the withdrawal of seven States which have since established an independent Confederacy, and that the purely and exclusively Northern Government, inaugurated on the 4th of March last, is already broken down, hopelessly bankrupt and palpably doomed to still further division, and to National perdition.

gard the non-seceding Southern States as entitled to no consideration from the President in his selection of Ministers abroad. The ancient Commonwealth of Virginia, which gave her electoral vote last year, for the first time since the election of Washington, against the Democratic candidate for the Presidency; Maryland, the State of Howard, Williams, Pinckney and Harper; North Carolina, the State of Gaiton, Iredell, Badger, Graham and the Stanleys; Tennessee, which preferred Clay to Polk in 1844--Scott to Pierce in 1852, and Bell to Breckinridge in 1860--all are ignored by Abraham Lincoln — while Kentucky alone is recognized in the person of Cassius M. Clay, who could not carry a county in the State on the popular vote. Even the third-rate mission to Constantinople is conferred upon a Northern man — the gasconading editor of a New York journal, who has, to the extent of his ability, done as much as any other journalist to bring about the present unhappy condition of the country.
longer, alas! a happy land, who, with blind confidence, places her fate in the hands of — of whom? Who is the second metaphorical personage? No other than Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States. The significant title, "Weaver," has been, from time immemorial, applied to spiders, and from them transferred to politician to see that, in the verses of this deservedly popular song, an epitome is given of the events which, since last November, have shaken this land? The election of Lincoln, the decay and dismemberment of the United States, the threats of civil war, and the rise of a new power in the South, are all foretold, and even an invitation toapted epigram expresses: "God bless our President the South's defender! God bless — no harm in blessing the Pretender! Which that pretender is — Davis or Lincoln, bless us all!--is quite another thing!" (Pardon, shade of Byrom!) Surely, these double-dealing malcontents cannot now listen to the spirit-stirring <
