isapprove the policy of attempting its recapture and occupation by military force. The wrong committed by such seizure would not be remedied by such a proceeding, or the remedy might prove worse than the wrong. "In regard to the retention of the forts occupied by the United States, that is a question which is now brought down to the simple point of holding or abandoning Fort Pickens, for we assume that Fort Sumter will be evacuated at an early day, and Forts Jefferson, at Tortugas, and Taylor, at Key West, lying far out at sea, and being obviously of national importance, are not included in the number of the posts which the State of Florida is entitled to claim on the ground of any necessity for her local defence. Forts Jefferson and Taylor were built with paramount reference to the commerce of the United States, and should remain in the hands of the Government which built them in the interest of its commerce.--The Key West naval coal depot and wharf, the marine hospital, the ar
itten by the Secretary, denying that any such order for the removal of guns had been issued, a letter was written to Mr. A. M. Barbour, of the Convention, by Capt. Kingsbury, of the Ordnance Department, informing him that, by direction of Col. Craig, the order for the removal of the guns had been countermanded. How could an order be countermanded that never had been given? The Ordnance Bureau is a part of the organization of the War Department. Is General Cameron so ignorant of his duties as not to know what has been done in one of the subordinate Bureaus of his department, or is this a deliberate misrepresentation intended to operate on and influence the action of the Virginia Legislature? A letter from Quartermaster Gen. Johnson, to Messrs. W. D. Colquitt & Co., dated 22d March, states that an agent of the Ordnance Department would deliver to them fifty cannon, which they were directed to forward immediately to Lieut. Taylor, at Fort Monroe, who would pay all charges.
Virginia State Convention.fifty-third day. Richmond,April 16th, 1861. The Convention was called to order at 10 o'clock A. M. Prayer by the Rev. D. S. Doggett, of the M. E. Church. The President announced the following special committee on the resolution offered by Mr. Willey, of Mongolia, inquiring into the expediency of changing the organic law in regard to taxation, viz: Messrs. Willey, Turner, French, Campbell, Barbour of Jefferson, Taylor, Tredway, Ambler, Marr, Chambliss, Gregory and Brent. The pending question from yesterday being, then, shall the main question be put on the resolution of Mr. Holcombe, of Albemarle, as follows: Resolved, That the Convention will immediately go into secret session, in order to consider the report of the Committee appointed to visit Washington, the main question was ordered, and being put, was decided in the affirmative. So the Convention went into secret session; the galleries being cleared, and all persons save one o
before given in Virginia for any man or measure. The vote in the East, the Valley, the Southwest and the Central West will be nearly unanimous. There will be no contest except in the Northwest, and even in this section there will be a majority for the ordinance outside of the Pan Handle. We have already sufficient information to justify the expectation of decided majorities in favor of the ordinance in the counties of Wetzel, Tyler, Pleasants, Hitchie, Lewis, Bourbon and Marion. In Wood, Taylor and Monongahela, it is believed that the majorities will be the other way.--From the other counties of the Northwest, outside of the Pan Handle, our information is not yet sufficient to determine with confidence to which side the majorities will incline; but in all of them many votes will be cast for the ordinance. Along the line of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad we learn that the Western counties of Jefferson, Berkeley, Morgan and Hampshire are not only for secession, but are supplyin

Ship destroyed by fire — Seizure of U. S. Vessels, &c. New Orleans, May 23. --The barque Gen. Taylor hence for Bordeaux, laden with cotton and stores, was burned to the water's edge, off the bar this morning. Cargo total loss. All United States vessels in port were seized to-day. The privateer steamer Ivey has captured another large ship in the mouth of the river.
se who noticed his fall ran forward to pick him up, when it was found that the ball had entered on the right side of the neck, and, ranging dowaward, passed through the chest and lung to the shoulder-blade. The injured man was immediately removed to the hospital and tenderly cared for; but, from the fatal nature of the wound, and the fact that the lung was severely lacerated, but small hopes were entertained of his recovery, and I have, in fact, since learned that he has died. His name was Taylor, Orderly Sergeant of one of the Albemaris companies — the Piedmont Guards. The shooting was so purely accidental, that the unfortunate author of the calamity was immediately exonerated from all blams. It is also said that three other of our soldiers were wounded by the accidental discharge of a gun when on picket. It is to be hoped that these accidents will tend to the exercise, by the troops here, of more carefulness in the use of fire-arms. Our camp on Sunday was the scene of quite

And, as it was well known, both here and in Charleston, that he opposed secession in all its forms, he did not anticipate a misconstruction on that point anywhere. Affairs in St. Louis — large seizure of Counterfeits. St. Louis, June 8. --The City Council yesterday reconsidered its action accepting Mayor Taylor's resignation, and allowed him to withdraw it. About $200,000 in counterfeit bank notes, ten well engraved and eleven unfinished bogus plates, were seized by the police yesterday in the house of Nelson Griggs, and its occupants lodged in jail. Colonel Smith's American Zouave corps has been accepted by the War Department. This is the thirteenth regiment furnished by Missouri. The correspondent of the Democrat says that nearly all the State officers have left Jefferson City.
