n an act which no honorable man can regard otherwise than with the severest censure. "We much regret that the President will necessarily be held responsible for the criminal temerity of the man whom he temporarily placed at the head of the War Department. He has but one course left, if he will escape the odium that will attach to all those who took part in the issue of this fatal order, and that is, to dismiss Mr. Holt from a place to which he should never have been called, and order Gen Scott to return to his post and attend to the legitimate duties of his command of the army. The Southern man who would send armed men to shed the blood of his brethren, is fully capable of betraying the colleague to whose friendship he owes his undeserved elevation.

On the other hand, some members from the South would have given it their support, but from the fact that the Republicans had all along refused the olive branch, thoug<

Toombs boldly declared hemself a rebel, if secession were rebellion, and proclaimed his willingness to throw the bloody spear at any moment. His points were made with great power, coming like bursts of thunder, at times; but his speech, as a whole, was desultory, interrupted, broken. It did not flow like Benjamin's, the movement of which was like the majestic tide of the Mississippi. General Scott is concentrating troops here, ostensibly to protect Lincoln, but, for aught we know, to make an inroad upon Virginia.--We must be on the alert. The sword is drawn against us; the Federal troops, according to a New York dispatch, will reach Charleston this evening. Virginia must trust her defence to herself alone. We will never be more able to take our destiny in our own hands than now. I am glad you have come out so decidedly for a united South. What else is left us?--The day of
