nment over to Monday, he would not be able to send in the message until Monday. While in conversation with those gentlemen, which chiefly turned on the condition of public affairs, I was started by the receipt of a telegraphic dispatch from Judge Robertson, my co-commissioner, dated at Charleston, S. C., inquiring into the foundation of a rumor which had reached that place, that the steamship Brooklyn, with troops, had sailed for the South, from Norfolk.-- I immediately handed over the dispatc the President, but had placed it in the hands of his servant, to be delivered at the earliest opportunity. The reply of the President--No. 2--reached me at half-after 11 o'clock that night. In the interim, I had dispatched by telegraph to Judge Robertson the information I had collected; and, upon the opening of the telegraphic office the next morning, (Saturday,) the material points of the President's reply, relating to the sailing of the Brooklyn, viz: that she had gone on an errand "of mer
Voters, Remember! --The doctrine of coercion, so strenuously advocated by the Black Republicans, and so cordially opposed by the South, has its friends and advocates in our midst, under the pretence of enforcing the law. They would make the South a conquered province. Voters! look well to your tickets. Do not entrust your liberties to any who, regardless of your liberties, would surrender a single right. To secure them vote for Randolph, Steger, and Robertson. fe 2--1t
Voters, Remember --That whilst Virginia is making offers of peace and compromise, the North still maintains her position of defiance. We have offered the olive branch. The North responds with armed men and ships-of-war, the implements of subjugation, and not of love and peace. The occasion demands prompt action. Vote for men who desire prompt action. Vote for Randolph, Steger, and Robertson. fe 2--1t
Voters, Remember! --The question now before the country is one of awful moment; one that rises high above mere party. It is a question to settle for years the fate of the country, and with it our peace and prosperity. If you would settle this question honorably to yourselves and the South, vote for Randolph, Steger, and Robertson. fe 2--1t

Voters, Remember. --All honorable efforts to save the Union have failed. The South, though deeply wronged, has again and again begged for concessions. The reply has been, we have none to offer. It is vain to extenuate the matter. Six sister States have already declared themselves free and independent. Shall Virginia stand idle? "Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery?" Voters, in your might, rally, rally for Randolph, Steger, and Robertson. te 2--1t
s being administered to the militia of the District. It is expected that all the clerks will have to take a similar oath, and so we are having a merry time here. In this connection, it may not be amiss to state that however much Gen Scott may love Virginia, he has taken special pains not to visit any of her representatives during his present sojourn in Washington. Heretofore, he has been invariably quite social and intimate with them. The nomination of Messrs. Randolph, Steger, and Robertson, in your city, and Messrs. Goggin and Kirkpatrick in Lynchburg, gives great satisfaction to Southern men here. But the Tribune says,"that patriots like Messrs. Botts, Barbour, Clemens, and Stuart, will have a clear majority of twenty-eight in the Convention." Heaven forbid! I could give the names of a party of traitors, where of "this correspondence" was one, who were busily engaged till a late hour last night in sending off the magnificent articles contributed by one "Bland," to the
